Slow-moving and sly, Everyone Else , from the German director Maren Ade, dissects a relationship between a man and a woman on vacation in Sardinia in ways that are both stunningly perceptive and a little frightening, too. Chris (Lars Eidinger) is a talented but still struggling architect whose mother has lent him her house in the rocky hills of the idyllic Italian isle. Gitti (Birgit Minichmayr) is a music-biz publicist who comes across as flaky, a little off. For the first half of Ade's sharply observed piece, the young couple eat, sleep, make love, argue, reconcile, argue, reconcile.

Upper Darby High football coach Jack Shingle, the man who rebuilt the Royals' program, handed in his letter of resignation Monday. "I'm just physically and emotionally tired," said Shingle, who was 44-32-2 in his seven-year tenure at Upper Darby. "It's just time to hand the ball off to the next coach, which in my opinion should be (assistant coach) Rich Gentile. Rich played at Upper Darby and came back and helped us build the program back up here. "But right now it's just time for me to unplug, time to take some time off. " When Shingle took over as Upper Darby's football coach in 1987, there were 18 players on the team.

"One Acre At A Time," first mounted at New Freedom Theatre in honor of the Bicentennial, has been dusted off again for Black History Month. "One Acre" is a journey through African-American history using music, vignettes, speeches, essays and other writings. Like any journey, it has memorable moments and more forgettable ones. The music - spirituals, gospel, jazz and blues - is excellent, from the tight three-piece band (pianist Jeffrey Newton, bassist Lonnie Henson and drummer Amir Abdulla)

As it turns out, grazing wasn't just another faddish way to munch through the self-absorbed '80s. Increasingly, research shows that several small meals a day may be better than three squares. This way of eating: Lowers cholesterol. Smooths out blood-sugar peaks and valleys. May make weight loss easier. "It may have great importance for heart disease," says Dr. David Jenkins, a University of Toronto researcher who has done extensive work on how nibbling lowers cholesterol.

Like the 76ers this season, Lou Williams has experienced some peaks and valleys. Right now, though, the Sixers' spark-plug reserve guard is at a peak: In the last three games entering last night, he was averaging 19.7 points, and in the last seven, he was making 40 percent of his shots. (He had shot 33.7 percent in his previous 18 games.) "We know it's going to be a long trip," Williams said before last night's game against the Sacramento Kings, the fourth stop of a five-game Western swing.

Wearing a plaid, open-necked sports shirt, Dave Montgomery sat in the Phillies' dugout. Somewhat reclusive since taking over as club president on June 20, he had agreed to meet with reporters before yesterday afternoon's game at Busch Stadium. The topics were the futures of the radical realignment proposal and general manager Lee Thomas. Montgomery is an ardent supporter of the former but was considerably more ambiguous about the latter. On the proposal that would have more than a dozen teams, including the Phillies, change leagues, he argued that the benefits - primarily in scheduling, travel and television - far outweigh the disadvantages.

They call it the Princeton offense. Ridley's spread-the-floor offensive set is designed to provide open jump shots or cutaways to the basket. And right now that two-pronged offense is working wonders for Green Raiders coach John DiGregorio. In its latest Central League conquest, Ridley (9-2 overall, 6-1 league) did virtually anything it wanted to in an easy 67-37 win over visiting Conestoga (8-5, 5-2) Friday night. "I got the offense from going to Princeton about 10 times in the off- season and talking with coach Pete Carrill," said DiGregorio.

The number of homicides was down substantially last year in the Pennsylvania suburbs. But local law enforcement officials say they doubt the drop is indicative of any long-term trend. And the early evidence from this year suggests they may be right. Forty-seven people were slain in 1992 in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties, according to the district attorneys, police and coroners in the four counties. That number is down from 65 the year before, an overall drop of 28 percent.
