Warren Guernsey of Cobleskill, N.Y., has been bowling well enough lately to consider returning to the Professional Bowlers Association Tour full time. His performance yesterday in the Lipton Brisk PBA East Coast Tournament did nothing to change that notion. Guernsey, 28, finished plus-359 in eight games at Shake and Bake Bowl in West Baltimore to lead the tournament and qualify for today's finals. Eleven others in the 78-man field, including Danny Wiseman of Baltimore and Tim Criss of Bel Air, also advanced.

GUERNSEY, Channel Islands -- People come to these islands in the English Channel to shelter their money and their lives. And so, it seems, William Norman Clever, a middle-aged sailing wanderer, and Peter Ogden, a clever millionaire, found a common reason to be here.They both wanted privacy.Mr. Ogden, the founder of the largest computer sales company in Britain, is so publicity-shy that his own public relations officer says he doesn't know his age. He is said to be 46.The son of a trade union official, the Englishman did not come from the privileged class that tends to rise to the top in Britain.

With the Guernsey cow tethered to a portable stall, Jo-Ann Chason stooped beside her animal and showed Nicholas Weinel how to milk a cow. Watching intently as Chason squeezed and milk streamed into the bucket under the cow's udder, Nicholas tried to imitate the motion. He couldn't quite grasp it. "I didn't want to squeeze too hard because I didn't want to hurt the cow," said Nicholas, 7, of Mount Airy, a second-grader at New Market Elementary School. It was Nicholas' first attempt at milking a cow, said his grandparents, Dick and Diane Courtney of Eldersburg.

Powel III, 56, who five years ago turned day-to-day management of the family's 300-head Holstein herd, including 120 milking cows, over to his twins, Tom and Anne, who celebrate their 30th birthdays tomorrow.
