IT MAY be spring, but some local residents have no intentions of hanging up their ice skates just yet. Members of the Columbia Figure Skating Club are busy preparing for a slick production of "The Wizard of Oz on Ice" this weekend at Columbia Ice Rink. The show is based on the story of "The Wizard of Oz," and will be followed by a variety of short segments with themes from "Aladdin," "My Fair Lady," "Annie" and "The Wiz." Preparations for the show began late last year, well before the club's December program, "The Nutcracker On Ice," said Joan Rosenhauer, one of the show's directors.

Wendelyn R. Jones, A young figure skater glides across the ice, concentrating on the moves required to go up in skill, while three judges make notations, watching for a wrong edge, an incorrectly placed toe. This isn't a competition in which marks are awarded and a winner declared. This is more technical, behind-the-scenes stuff. It is a test. It is a series of prescribed elements that determines at which level a skater is classified. Actually, it is two tests occurring simultaneously.

THIS IS the story of the Snow Queen. It begins in a mythical country up north. The Snow Queen keeps the land in a permanent chill. Once a year, she looks at herself in a magical mirror that reflects back to her the opposite of what she is. When she sees the image of summer looking back at her, warm weather arrives. But one year, ice trolls steal the mirror to ensure that it will always be winter. They throw the mirror off a mountain and it smashes into tiny bits. People in the village below mistake the falling pieces of glass for snow.

It was great fun to watch the world ice skating championships last weekend. Take the grace of ballet, combine it with the power of gymnastics, the speed of cheetahs and the costuming of Busby Berkeley and you have a perennially favorite sport.Television gives us great close-ups of the performers leaping, but the tight shots and flowing camera angles hide how fast the skaters are moving.Each leap covers an enormous distance. Well, we are lucky that it's just about that time again, when we can all see a fantastic performance on ice by nationally ranked skaters.
