TACOMA TIGERS TAKE HEAT FOR PROPOSED TIE WITH BEER COMPANY

     In Tacoma, Art Popham complains about the AAA Tigers
considering renaming the team after the Rainier Brewery.  Popham:
"It seems to me the Tacoma Rainiers would become another Joe
Camel -- a promotional devise intended to build young people's
acceptance of a negative adult habit. ... Would [USC] change its
Trojan logo to resemble a pack of condoms if Trojan prophylactics
promised USC big bucks?" (Tacoma NEWS TRIBUNE, 10/29).
