ST. LOUIS DOME TO BE COMPLETED IN OCTOBER '95

     FANS Inc.'s Thomas Eagleton announced Friday that if the
Rams decide to relocate to St. Louis, they will have to play the
first two months of the '95 season in Busch Stadium.  Eagleton
said that completion of the 75,000-seat dome would not be until
October 25, and to ensure completion by the start of the season
would cost an additional $11-20M.  Lawrence Akey, Exec Dir of the
St. Louis Stadium Authority, said that uncertainty in the weather
and unforseen labor problems make a September 1 dome opening
nearly impossible:  "We certainly don't want to do anything that
would jeopardize any opportunity of acquiring the Rams" (Jim
Thomas, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 11/12).
