LONG BEACH, Calif. - There was sound and fury at the front of the pack in the men's 100-meter freestyle yesterday at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials. At the back, there was Ensign Noah White, an overachiever from a San Diego suburb and the U.S. Naval Academy who is serving his country, not himself. Jason Lezak set an American record of 48.17 in the semifinals. Gary Hall Jr. is trying to become the American male swimmer with the most Olympic medals ever. Citing Lezak's lack of an international pedigree, Hall won't acknowledge him as a rival.

Clint W. Ensign is a godsend for serious sightseers who know how it is to spend the day squinting and moving their lips as they try to read the inscriptions on Washington's monuments. Not only has Mr. Ensign painstakingly recorded the words of wisdom from 27 sites in the nation's capital, he offers tight histories of each site that help put the quotations in context and make the overpriced, almost pocket-sized book fascinating even for the casual nontourist reader.In an overly humble preface, the author explains how he chose which inscriptions, how he added punctuation to some passages to make them more readable, why he didn't give the White House its own chapter . . . and on and on. He even slips in an unsettling pre-emptive apology in case there are any errors!

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. - When trainer Bob Baffert, who has three horses in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, looked at the entrants for the race, he said: "Darn, she showed up. I was hoping she wouldn't." He was referring to Storm Flag Flying, the regally bred potential star who may be the heaviest favorite tomorrow on the Breeders' Cup card. Storm Flag Flying is 3-for-3 with two Grade I victories. Her roots go deep into Breeders' Cup history. Her dam, My Flag, won the Juvenile Fillies in 1985.

Kristen Hohenwarter is not crusading against alcohol. She does not want people to stop drinking it, or bars to stop serving it. All she wants is for people to choose a designated driver if they are drinking. It's a decision she would have welcomed a year ago - one that would have averted the loss of two lives and immeasurable emotional trauma. Hohenwarter, 23, and her boyfriend, Ensign John R. Elliott, a recent Naval Academy graduate, were hit by a drunken driver in July. They were on their way to New Jersey for a birthday celebration for Elliott's mother when the drunken driver swerved across the double-yellow line and hit them head-on.

Does the word walkover ring a bell? It wasn't exactly the situation in which no one wants to challenge a lopsided favorite who is awarded victory by default, but Silverbulletday's gallop through the Grade II, $200,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes yesterday was about as close as it comes.Mike Pegram's filly showed why she was undoubtedly of Triple Crown caliber by running away from six rivals and setting a stakes record of 1 minute, 47 4/5 seconds for 1 1/8 miles. The winning time was just three-fifths of a second off the track record held by Private Terms.
