GOVERNOR-ELECT BUSH WANTS TO KEEP RANGERS

     Texas Governor-elect George W. Bush wants to keep his
minority interest in the Texas Rangers.  However, he would "sell
if ownership gives rise to potential conflict of interest with
his duties as governor."  Karen Hughes, Bush's campaign press
secretary, said Bush has asked his lawyers whether he needs to
put that interest in a trust, but added Bush would "eliminate his
duties as managing partner."  MLB Dir of Public Relations Jim
Small said there is "nothing that prohibits" a politician from
owning a team (Simon Gonzalez, FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 11/10).
