A Southern Californian is leading after Monday's compulsory figures at the World Championships. Not surprisingly, it isn't Christopher Bowman of Van Nuys. On his list of likes, figures would finish only slightly higher than malathion. After wearing his patch skates for the last time, now that compulsories have been eliminated from international competition after this meet, Bowman said, "I'm leaving my skate guards on my blades until they crumble into the archives."

Robert C. Fisher, recent manager of Drexel Burnham Lambert's retail brokerage office in Beverly Hills, has been named a managing director at a competing investment house, making him among the first of what is expected to be a mass exodus of employees from Drexel's Beverly Hills retail office in the wake of the firm's plan to sell its retail division.
