Martha Socolar from Baltimore was looking for a recipe for a pasta salad with turkey that she said was printed on a box of Mueller's shell pasta in the mid-1990s. She said the recipe was on the box for a long time, but she never copied it down. Sue Housel from Eldersburg shared a recipe for a mandarin turkey pasta salad that she cut from a box of Mueller's shells many years ago that she hoped might be the one that Socolar was in search of. Even if this is not the exact recipe that Socolar remembers, it is one that she and her family are likely to enjoy.

HONG KONG -- Dressed in their navy blue uniforms and sporting closely cropped hair, the students at Queen's College high school hark back to when British rule was uncontested and the language of success was English.Success and power are about to be translated into another language: Mandarin Chinese.By 2000, Mandarin -- China's official national language -- will be compulsory in Hong Kong schools, even as much of the world adopts English as the language of science, commerce and popular culture.

The way Anne Arundel schools Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell sees it, America is falling behind. In China, 200 million students are studying English, but 50,000 American students are learning Chinese. China's population is nearly five times that of the United States. As early as this fall, the schools chief hopes to begin a six-year Chinese sequence that would teach Mandarin to seventh-graders. In high schools, Maxwell hopes to offer Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate classes in the language that could help students land a job in diplomatic service, national security or in business.

TAIPEI, Taiwan - They're just as foulmouthed, politically incorrect and crudely drawn here as they are back in the United States. And just as in the United States, that's precisely the appeal of those fish-eyed cartoon kids of TV's "South Park," whose off-color jokes and antics - translated into Mandarin Chinese - have become a surprise hit here among Taiwan's latte-sipping, cynicism-dripping youth. The program's success - it easily wins its time slot late Saturdays - has been a boost for Hong Kong-based StarTV, the Rupert Murdoch-owned cable network that last year bought the rights to air "South Park" in Taiwan.

What is the difference between tangerines, tangelos and clementines? The orange-colored, spheroid members of the citrus genus are a tangle of botanical and taxonomic confusion, which I will do my best to sort out. Because citrus trees are so easy to cross, the genus includes scores of hybrids. However, there is some recent genetic evidence to suggest that in the botanical beginning, there were only three species of citrus and that the panoply of today's citrus fruits is all descended from them.

There really was quite a twist to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's second installment in its new "Symphony With a Twist" series. Where the first program back in the fall was basically a souped-up greatest-hits affair (the twist came in the limes served with cocktails in the lobby), this one offered a bracing jolt of 20th-century sounds and ideas, undiluted by any dumbing-down. Part of the sizzle on Saturday evening came just from the chance to hear the BSO dig into so much repertoire that, while technically far from contemporary, still sounds contemporary.

Classes complement state's ties to China I was delighted to read that Mandarin is now being offered in some Maryland schools ("Md. schools joining trend, add classes in Chinese," Dec. 25). I am a graduate of Mount Hebron High School and became interested in China while in high school. I wasn't able to get serious about learning Mandarin, however, until graduate school, when I had to go to another state (and eventually Beijing) to become proficient. By the time I started learning Mandarin I was already a young adult, and obtaining fluency has been arduous.

Attorneys handling cases that involve non-English-speaking defendants, witnesses and victims have two options: take a crash course in those native tongues, or bring aboard a courtroom interpreter. Three trials scheduled in coming weeks in Harford County Circuit Court required the court to seek out licensed Greek, Mandarin Chinese and Cantonese Chinese interpreters. Lawyers and courthouse employees say the need for interpreters - particularly in Spanish - has risen in recent years. Throughout Maryland, there are more than 110 certified interpreters who can work in any district, circuit or appeals court, according to the state Administrative Office of the Courts.

Busy Dobbin Center has a busy Chinese restaurant, Wok 175, tucked behind the fast-food joints. "We've owned Wok 175 since 1991 - about three years after it opened," owner Billy Wong said. Wok 175 brings decades of experience in cooking Chinese cuisine, according to Wong. "Our head chef is my father-in-law," he said. "He's been a chef for 40 years - 30 of which in Columbia restaurants." According to Wong, the restaurant serves Americanized Mandarin-style food and a variety of dishes in other styles.
