Russell Walker blazed a trail in 1965, when he became Los Angeles County's first black lifeguard, and he has been doing it ever since. "I've been called so many firsts before in my career," said Walker, who recently was promoted to captain and placed in charge of the county Lifeguard Division's Central Section in Santa Monica. "In fact, each time I'm promoted, I am 'the first.' " The thing is, hardly anyone has followed.

Leland Russell and Gordon Walker don't seem like the type of people that U.S. corporations would ordinarily turn to for a crash course on how to compete in the New World economy of the 1990s. After all, the former stage managers' last previous national undertaking was a series of concert tours that included a 96-city Barry Manilow fest in which they were responsible for making sure the lighting was to the singer's liking.

I see where Cincinnati now has Buddy Bell, and a couple of guys named Russell and Walker--hardly cogs in the Big Red Machine--went to the Rangers in exchange. Our delightful Dodger general manager, one Alexander Sebastian Campanis, told us that Texas just wanted too much for this great third baseman we needed so badly. Way to go, Al. You outwitted yourself and we saps who pay the freight yet another time. Those bargain-basement castoffs you keep coming up with are every bit as good, and your shrewd eye for talent will have us back in the Fall Classic.

Like so many autumn leaves, temperature records fell across a sweltering Southern California on Sunday, with some of the old highs laid low as early as noon. And two days after Halloween, Angelenos were leaving jack-o'-lanterns to wither on the porch while they headed for the beaches and mountains, enjoying the unseasonably warm weather as well as the unusually clear skies.

"The Famine Within," which starts today at the NuWilshire, is a documentary about women and food, a subject already covered, in fictional terms, by Henry Jaglom's amused, affectionate "Eating." In "Famine," the same obsessions are examined from a broader perspective: sociocultural, psychological, radical-political.

The Japanese have discovered the mini whinny, the little horses that have a way of fascinating almost everyone who has seen them. And what the Japanese like, they buy. There are about 100 of the miniature horses in Japan and the number is growing. A prime source for the Japanese stock is Winners' Circle Miniature Horse Ranch in Petaluma, about 35 miles north of San Francisco.
