PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Event designer Joseph Moretti is red-eyed and wired, going on 36 hours without sleep. He's talking fast about the bat mitzvah party carrying on in the next room, in the 17th-floor ballroom at the Biltmore Hotel. No problems yet. The confetti cannons blew on cue, the orange and fuchsia special-effects lighting can be seen for two miles, and the Beatles tribute band backstage looks calm before its set. Ringo is smoking a cigarette and confiding about his relationship. Or is that John?

AS OF April 1 the Scholastic Aptitude Test, scourge of America's youth, lost some of its bite. The average student no longer needs to worry about explaining those low test scores to their parents and school boards can stop agonizing over how poorly their pupils do on standardized tests.No, the students aren't any smarter and the schools aren't any better. In fact the only thing that has improved is the test scores. SAT administrators have decided that the best way to improve students' performance on the test is to give them free "bonus points" after their answers have been scored.

Color is one fashion message that has certainly got through to women this fall. Everywhere you look, the eye catches a flash of some strong shade like orange, apricot, acid green, deep blue, hot pink, yellow, lacquer red or deep purple.Adventuresome fashion types are having a great time experimenting with combinations of two or more of these high tones in one outfit. Even women who live by the rule of black or beige seem to be adding a touch of spicy color to their wardrobes.What is interesting is how well many of these intense tones work on women of different hair colorings and complexions.
