Searching for clarification of its role in the post-Cold War world and mired in financial woe, the United Nations turned for leadership Friday to one of its veteran officials, Kofi Annan of Ghana, with the Security Council designating him the seventh secretary-general. Annan, 58, has held U.N. posts around the world for 30 years, most recently the sensitive job of undersecretary-general for peacekeeping operations. He is well liked within the U.N.

Walter F. Mondale, whose crushing defeat in the 1984 presidential campaign inspired a rebellion within the national Democratic Party against traditional liberalism, was chosen unanimously Wednesday night to replace the late Paul Wellstone as the party's Senate nominee. Even before the meeting of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party began in Minneapolis' Historic State Theatre, most of the delegates were wearing new Mondale campaign buttons, including one that read "Let's win one for Paul."

When Malaika Marie Williams goes to Washington early next year to read a medical research paper that she coauthored at the tender age of 21, the Whittier College senior will be lecturing many doctors more than twice her age. But despite her youth, she can lay claim to an honor many of them would envy: She's now a Rhodes scholar.

With six minutes remaining in a second overtime period in UC San Diego's NCAA Division III women's soccer first-round match Saturday, Diana Klintworth saw her dream of becoming a rare two-sport national champion end. In driving snow and sleet in Winona, Minn., Macalester College forward Jessi Ebertz headed in the game's only goal in the 114th minute to advance. UCSD, the 1989 champion, and Klintworth were left in the cold.

Leslie Revsin, who broke the gender barrier in New York City restaurants by becoming the first female chef at the Waldorf-Astoria, died Monday at her home in the Seattle suburb of Shoreline, Wash. She was 59 and had been undergoing treatment for cancer. Revsin was hired at the famed hotel as "kitchen man" in 1972, a time when men, particularly French men, ruled the range.

At the start of the soccer season, UC San Diego defender Susan Kramer and forward Heather Mauro made a friendly bet. It seemed to be weighted in Mauro's favor, because part of it had to do with scoring goals and forwards are in position to score more goals than defenders. Mauro, in fact, has a team-high 14 goals, but Kramer surprisingly has six. As a concession to her position, her goals count triple. Obviously, she is holding her own.

Kofi Annan, the secretary-general of the United Nations, visited California in part to recruit celebrities to the cause of boosting the world organization. Much to his surprise, he found himself treated as a celebrity. Annan, on Tuesday in Los Angeles and in the Bay Area on Sunday and Monday, was hailed and stopped by passersby on the street and in hotel lobbies. Tourists in San Francisco leaned out of cable cars to snap his picture. He received standing ovations whenever he spoke.

The Colleges It didn't last as long as the Hundred Years War. Or even Howard Cosell's reign on "Monday Night Football." Still, Columbia's losing streak seemed to go on forever. But just when the toothless Lions were within purring range of the all-time National Collegiate Athletic Assn. record for consecutive losses, 50 (by Division III Macalester College of St. Paul, Minn.), they gummed up everything. They nipped Princeton, 16-13, to end their streak at a paltry 44.

The team of Jimmy (Jam) Harris and Terry Lewis is one of the hottest producing-composing teams in the record business, with Janet Jackson as their best-known client. So when the duo launched their own label, Perspective Records, you would expect them to start out by recording some sure-fire R&B or dance artists.
