A 22-YEAR-OLD man was shot dead just off La Salle University's campus in Logan yesterday. The victim, the city's 50th homicide of the year, was shot once in the left side in an alley near Olney Avenue and 19th Street, police said. The shooting was sparked by an argument, which later escalated into a fistfight among a group of men, Chief Inspector Scott Small said. One of the men pulled a gun and shot the victim, who then staggered across Olney Avenue and collapsed in front of La Salle University.

ON A VISIT to Philadelphia in November, Colleen Hanycz did what most visitors do when in our midst: She ate her first cheesesteak. The Canadian native isn't sure which locale she consumed said sandwich, only remembering that the eatery was inside the Reading Terminal Market and featured a "Best of" sign. The sandwich "alone is reason to move to Philadelphia," Hanycz said yesterday. In fact, a much higher calling has attracted the married mother of three here: Hanycz was named president of La Salle University yesterday by the school's Board of Trustees.

LA SALLE University officials announced they will consider laypersons for the president's job for the first time in the school's 150-year history. The board of trustees recently approved changes to the university's bylaws allowing for greater flexibility as it seeks to replace Brother Michael J. McGinniss, who will step down in May after 15 years as president. Board Chairman William Sautter said yesterday the declining number of candidates from the Christian Brothers religious order made the change necessary.

BILL FLEISCHMAN might have put it best: "Bobby Lyons was a genuine Philly sports guy. " Like many Philadelphia sportswriters, past and present, Bill Fleischman, longtime Daily News sports correspondent and auto-racing reporter, knew and respected Bobby Lyons as a consummate professional, yet one who never called much attention to himself. He was a sports reporter for the Associated Press and the old Evening Bulletin, author of several highly regarded books on different aspects of sports, former sports-information officer for La Salle University, head of its news bureau and operator of his own public-relations company.

La Salle University, for the first time in its 151-year history, will be led by a lay president rather than a Christian brother - and its new leader might be a woman.

" La Salle has announced two finalists for the post: Colleen M. Hanycz, head of Brescia University College, a Catholic school in London, Ontario, that is Canada's only university-level women's college, and Anthony Joseph Aretz, president of Mount St. Joseph University, a Catholic school in Cincinnati.

PAWTUCKET, R.I. - The door was open, and Bianca Perry stepped into the vacant room that had changed her life. The bed was made. The dresser emptied. Brother Michael had always promised a place for her in the large residence next to St. Joseph's Church in Pawtucket. A few of her belongings remained untouched last week, long after Perry had departed for college in Philadelphia and broken her family's cycle of despair. The scars are etched into her soul: Three hungry siblings trying to boil a raw potato while their stoned mother locked herself in a room.

THROUGH the years, people have told James Stewart that someday someone was going to come along and help him. He thought about those words as he learned to ride a bike. He thought about them as he bonded with his father over cooking lessons. He thought about them as he toured pizzerias to learn how to toss pizzas. He thought about them as he lived his life with a malformed hand, a birth defect. The reality is that Stewart, 34, doesn't need help: He's adapted, he's determined and he's doing just fine in his job making pizzas.

La Salle University scholar Stuart Leibiger found his way to Washington - the president, not the state - through a series of excursions. As a boy, he immersed himself in Lincoln, visiting presidential sites during a family trip through Illinois. He detoured into Civil War history in high school, met up with Madison and Jefferson while an undergraduate at the University of Virginia. Not until he was earning his doctorate at the University of North Carolina in the 1990s did he fully arrive at his destination, immersing himself in the public and private lives of the nation's first president.
