Hannelore and Gordon Munson of Wildwood Drive on the death of Hannelore's mother, Gertrude Haufe, age 100, of Worcester.

In last week's article on a Feng Shui presentation at the Carlisle School, a statement was included made by Mary Roberts, ''energy can't flow in a messy room if it is blocked" and therefore the students "can't get answers to math or science problems."
