MORE ON WORK STOPPAGES AND THE HOLIDAY SHOPPING SEASON

     The baseball strike and the "near-lockout" in hockey are
causing "big problems for the sports card and T-shirt industries.
And unless something happens quickly in one or both sports, the
season to be jolly could be anything but."  Some sports retailers
admit if the work stoppages continue, "Christmas is going to
hurt."  Everyone agrees the labor strife "is causing short-term
problems, but industry officials say it's too early to tell what
will happen to the market in the long run" (Jim Byers, TORONTO
STAR, 10/14).
