L.A. OLYMPIC SWIM FACILITY MAY BE DEMOLISHED FOR PARKING LOT

     An earthquake-damaged swimming facility adjacent to the L.A.
Memorial Coliseum may be demolished and replaced by a "large
parking structure close to both the Coliseum and the Sports
Arena."  The site of the '32 Olympic swimming events and the
"city's largest swim facility for youths was shut down all
summer" and it appears likely that a replacement pool and park
will be built near the area.  The addition of more parking for
the Coliseum may ease "negotiations with the Raiders on a long-
term playing contract," and "pleasing the Raiders is said to be a
major reason for officials' desire to relocate the facility."
Details still need to be decided, but a decision could be made
soon (Kenneth Reich, LOS ANGELES TIMES, 10/4).
