Nothing like a good long hard gulp of old Forster to clear the sinuses and settle down the palpitating heart, and that's what James Ivory's "Howards End" serves up, neat.The movie, which opens today at the Charles (with a benefit for AIDS Action Baltimore), takes E.M. Forster's longest, densest and most ironic novel, a typically polite condemnation of the British class system in which a man of feeling is crushed by well-meaning but out-of-control forces, and gives it extraordinary snap, crackle and pop. And unlike the Hollywood approach to adapting novels, Ivory and his collaborators don't destroy the piece by "fixing" it. They actually appear to have read it. They haven't even figured out that dead white European males like Forster are declasse today.

NOVEL On Beauty By Zadie Smith. Penguin Press. 464 pages. When an established author updates a classic, it's generally considered bad form to spend the great majority of your reading sniffing out salient "Aha!" moments. But On Beauty, Zadie Smith's third novel, a vigorous homage to Forster's Howards End, not only invites, but demands, such sniffing. The author - whose debut, White Teeth, catapulted her into the kind of galactic literary orbit of which lesser authors, crashing and burning through unearned advances, can only dream - has transposed her countryman's novel of love and class in turn-of-the-century England into a treatise on race and class in current day America.

Mount Hebron's longtime girls lacrosse dynasty continued to erode yesterday at Centennial. The Eagles, wearing black face paint, ended Mount Hebron's 18-year Howard County winning streak by upsetting the Vikings, 7-5. It was a physical game dominated by Eagles goalkeeper Mary Teeters. Centennial also was the school that beat Mount Hebron 18 years ago. "This game will always be etched in my mind," Teeters said. "I've never had a feeling like this before. It's indescribable." Mount Hebron's 103-game winning streak ended last season, and a 10-year winning streak against Maryland teams ended earlier this season.

The brilliant cast includes Emma Thompson, Anthony Hopkins, Vanessa Redgrave and Helena Bonham Carter.

Rated R."Far and Away" is a romantic epic of Irish immigration, with Tom Cruise and his wife Nicole Kidmann giving up motherland for the rambunctious America of the 1890s.

Anthony Hopkins is taking a few days off. That's almost an aberration in the career of the Academy Award-winning actor, who has been phenomenally busy in films, stage and television for a quarter century.During the past year, he's enjoyed his greatest commercial success ("The Silence of the Lambs," for which he won an Oscar) and one of the artistic peaks of his career ("Howards End"). He's also worked with Mick Jagger (in "Freejack") and filmmakers John Schlesinger ("The Innocent") and Francis Ford Coppola (Mr. Hopkins plays Van Helsing to Gary Oldman's vampire count in a new version of "Dracula")

More than 20 years ago, Clint Eastwood got to scowl over a rather large handgun at a cowering thug and say, "So, you have to ask yourself: 'Do I feel lucky today?' Well, punk? Do you?" The punk did. Clint blew him away. Things were so much simpler then.That was in "Dirty Harry," the controversial hit that propelled him to his highest level of recognizability, made him a genuine star and vouchsafed the career that was to follow. But the contempt of the critics for this hoot of right-wing macho was scathing, and one suspects it hurt him.Now, more than 20 years later, the critics have come to love him. He either outlived or outlasted the loudest of them.

West Friendship Elementary School will be closed for the remainder of the school year, which ends Friday, because of asbestos contamination, a Howard County schools spokeswoman said yesterday. Pupils will not have to make up the missed days because this is an emergency situation, spokeswoman Patti Caplan said. The school was shut down Monday after construction workers crushed asbestos floor tiles in the gym over the weekend, releasing the cancer-causing mineral into the air, where it can be dangerous if inhaled.

After nearly four years of training athletes to run faster and jump higher, the Cal Ripken Jr. Sports Acceleration Center will close this month, a spokesman for Ripken and the center said. Ripken, who owns the center, likely will redeploy elsewhere, possibly in the baseball complex he is building in Aberdeen, the spokesman said. "We made the decision to pull in the concept," John C. Maroon said. "We wanted to do it so we can apply certain aspects of it down the road. Cal very much liked the acceleration program and how it worked with kids, and how it fit in with our youth focus."

THEATERA 'Lesson' to Be LearnedThe Pulitzer Prize-winning family drama "The Piano Lesson," currently at the Mechanic Theatre, is the 1930s installment of August Wilson's decade-by-decade chronicle of black life in 20th century America. A moving and important work by one of the country's pre-eminent playwrights, the play uses an heirloom piano as a central symbol to explore the question of the proper use of a legacy. The ensemble cast in this touring production is as tightly knit as its Broadway predecessor.

Helena Bonham Carter knows she has an image problem. Since her first starring role as Jane Grey in the 1985 "Lady Jane," she has been pigeonholed as the queen of costume dramas.Between Merchant-Ivory films ("A Room With a View," "Howards End") and Shakespeare ("Twelfth Night," "Hamlet"), she has worn gowns from almost every period except the present.Because of these films, "There's this image of me as corseted and prim and irredeemably English -- all those things I don't think I am," she complains.

President Clinton delivers a prime-time speech tonight at 9, sliding or shifting the network schedules accordingly -- all but Fox, that is, which probably will enjoy higher ratings for "New York Undercover" as a result. CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN provide live coverage.* "Mad About You" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Ira has a new girlfriend (Marita Geraghty), which isn't necessarily good news for the fussy Buckmans (Helen Hunt, Paul Reiser). NBC.* "Elvis: The Tribute" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13)
