BP, Europe's second-biggest oil company, said yesterday that Tony Hayward, who was scheduled to replace Browne Aug. 1, is taking over the position immediately.

D'Alesandro 3rd, general chairman of the Mayor's Columbus Day Parade.

Tracy Chevalier knew she had a good story brewing as soon as she read the magazine article about a set of six mysterious medieval tapestries hanging in a Paris museum. "Alarm bells went off," the novelist recalled recently, "and I said, `Aha, there's stuff to be filled in here!' " What sort of stuff? Well, who, for instance, was the elegant woman in each of the elaborate tapestries, which are known as The Lady and the Unicorn? Who designed them? Who wanted them enough to pay a fortune for them?

A pure, clear light falls across the young woman's face and spills over her spotless white collar and russet-colored blouse. It touches the blue and gold cloth wound around her hair and pools in a marvelous concatenation of highlight and shadow on the perfect oval of the large pearl earring hanging from her left earlobe. Jan Vermeer's luminous Girl With a Pearl Earring, which scholars believe was completed between 1665 and 1667, ranks among the artist's supreme masterpieces and is one of the most beautiful pictures in the world.

The Lady and the Unicorn, by Tracy Chevalier. Dutton. 248 pages. $23.95 In the National Museum of the Middle Ages, better known as the Cluny Museum, in Paris, one room is devoted to six enormous tapestries. Each depicts a richly robed noblewoman and a white unicorn, on a colorful background of animals, trees and flowers -- a millefleurs background, literally, "a thousand flowers." The tapestries are so beautiful, and so strangely mesmerizing, they inspire a kind of awe: How could human hands have done this?

EASTON - Virgil Chevalier is thinking that this season he's doing a pretty good impersonation of Roy Hobbs. Like the fictional hero who swung his homemade "Wonderboy" all the way to the big time in The Natural, Chevalier is giving much of the credit for his success to a batch of baseball bats - in this case turned out by an Eastern Shore furniture maker who never played in more than a few neighborhood sandlot games. After bouncing around baseball's minor leagues for seven years, Chevalier, a 28-year-old catcher and outfielder for the Class AA Binghamton, N.Y., Mets, says his first week at the plate with the bats made him look something like the film's mythical ballplayer.
