Carlyle last winter, and Allen wants records of the meetings kept out of court. She says they were trysts; he says he was just trying to keep her from going off the deep end. The two are locked in a virulent custody battle over their three children. AP photo All over now The Rolling Stones' bass guitarist Bill Wyman said yesterday he has quit the veteran rock 'n' roll group. "I have many special memories," the 55-year-old Wyman said. "It has been wonderful. But I thought the last two tours with them were the best we have ever done and so I was quite happy to stop after that," he said. Wyman, who is the oldest member of the group led by singer Mick Jagger, said he decided to leave to concentrate on his solo career, London restaurant and other interests. "When I joined this band we thought we would last two or three years with a bit of luck and come out with a few shillings in our pockets. Now here I am 30 years later and I have not done any of the other important things in life." Ball-oney "Going is always such a nightmare. Your clothes are destroyed, it's cold, it takes 'til April to get your coat back (from the coat checks). . . . You can't get a drink, and you don't see the president; he zips in for five minutes." Washington writer Sally Quinn, on attending an inaugural ball. Goodness Delia Reese quit going to church in her 20s, disillusioned with the idea of a vengeful God. Today, the 61-year-old singer-actress preaches love to her own congregation. Her life took a new course in July when she founded a small church based on the Rev. Johnnie Colemon's "new thought" movement in Chicago. "I was put out of every church I went to because I questioned everything," said Reese, who was raised a Southern Baptist in Detroit "I couldn't understand why they made God sound so fierce and angry." Homeward bound Fiftysomething singer-songwriter Paul Simon and his wife, Edle Brickell, 26, lead singer of New Bohemians, have a baby boy, Adrian Edward. The stork dropped off a 7-pound, 2-ounce bundle in the Big Apple, but initial reports don't give the date of birth. Home economics Jackson Browne and Darj'l Hannah have apparently settled biz from their long but broken romance. She reportedly got the $2 mil shelter they shared in Santa Monica, Calif. She had accused him of assaulting her. Say "cheesy" The $4.95 admission to the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, Calif., will be waived tomorrow so that visitors can have their photos taken beside life-size cardboard cutouts of Nixon and Elvis Presley - whose birthdays both fall this weekend (Nixon's 80th, the Pelvis' 58th wherever he might be).

Initial public response to the royal engagement seemed wildly enthusiastic - particularly among Japan's growing coterie of college-educated career women, who look on Owada as a role model. Owada has a formidable resume. The daughter of a top diplomat, she lived in Moscow and New York as a child and speaks English fluently. She also has studied Spanish, German, French and Russian. Owada graduated from Belmont High School in suburban Boston and magna cum laude in economics from Harvard in 1985 and studied law at Tokyo University, the most prestigious college in Japan. In 1986, she passed Japan's foreign service exam on her first try, a feat accomplished by about one in 50 applicants. She was dispatched to Britain, where she completed graduate study in international relations at Balliol College, Oxford. Her most recent assignment was in the economics section on the U.S. desk at the Foreign Ministry. She worked on such issues as American firms' share of the Japanese semiconductor market and reform of Japan's antitrust law. She served as an interpreter during the 1991 visit of Secretary of State James A. Baker IIL Like most single Japanese women of her age, Owada lives with her parents. She is said to work long hours but to like skiing, tennis and foreign travel. Owada's life will be much different once she moves to the palace. It is unthinkable, for example, that she would keep her job. Most of the important decisions of her life will be made only with the approval of the Imperial Household Agency. And she will have no family name, being known only as Crown Princess Masako. The royal wedding, likely to be held this summer, will be an elaborate production adhering closely to the script of every royal wedding here since the Heian era, 794-1192 A.D. Advertiser staff writer Vicki Viotti contributed to this report. Nureyev: Ballet great dies at 54 FROM PAGE B1 Nureyev gave the impression he was barely tamed. He might even be dangerous. He and Fonteyn, later Dame Margot, went on to become the most famous ballet duo in the world. She was nearly 20 years older, married and maybe thinking of hanging up her toe shoes. But when they performed "Romeo and Juliet," he made her 16 again. "When I am dancing with him, and I look across the stage, I see not Nureyev, but the character of the ballet," Fonteyn once said. "I don't see, as I do with others, a man I know and talk to every day. I see the ballet He is absorbed in the role." His technique was stunning. He jumped higher and farther, and beat his feet together faster than Western audiences had seen before. He was less concerned with details like swinging his leg at the perfect angle from the floor during a spin than with making a grand, overall performance. Maude Gosling, a London-based dance critic and a friend of Nureyev's since 1962, said yesterday, "I think he'll be remembered as the greatest dancer of our lifetime." Nureyev performed on stages around the world up until his 50s, though some audiences griped because his dancing lacked the physicality that had been one of his trademarks. At nearly 53, on a 30-city tour, with a show called "Rudolf Nureyev and Friends," Nureyev accepted his body's limitations without apology, dancing darker, dramatic and less demanding roles. He also turned to choreography and directed the Paris Opera Ballet from 1983-89, retiring to take the lead role in a traveling version of the Broadway musical "The King and I." Last summer, he made his American debut as a conductor DESIGNER MUUMUUS RHinumtAR IIHKSM.it ji mpsuis SPECIAL $75 Regular 87 Joyce Pretender by Selby Black, White, Camel, Navy, M-W.

He returned to Paris in 1992 with his choreography of "La Bayadere," Marius Petipa's 19th-century classic. On Oct 8, in his last stage appearance, for the premiere of "La Bayadere," he looked gaunt and had to be helped to walk. He blinked back tears as the audience gave him a 10-minute standing ovation. Nureyev appeared in several films including "Romeo and Juliet," "Swan Lake," "I Am a Dancer," "Don Quixote" and the frightful "Exposed" with Nastassja Kinski. He played the title role in "Valentino," an appalling biography of the silent film star, another celebrated Rudolf. "Dance is my life," he said. "It means, well, somehow life tastes better when I dance." The world of dance will taste bland without him. Advertiser Arts and Entertainment Editor Wayne Harada contributed to this report.
