SUPERDOME COMMISSION NAME COMPANIES TO OVERSEE NEW ARENA

     The Superdome Commission voted yesterday to allow Integrated
Logistical Support Inc. to oversee construction of an $84M
basketball arena near the Superdome.  The Commission also voted
to have the company -- led by Mayor Marc Morial advisers' Robert
Tucker and Anthony Mumphrey -- oversee work on $20.5M in
improvements to the Dome.  The commission named another company,
Frederic Harris Inc., to oversee construction of a $20M minor-
league ballpark and a $6M Saints training camp.  The projects
will be funded via state bond issues backed by a 4% hotel-motel
tax in New Orleans (Bruce Eggler, New Orleans TIMES-PICAYUNE,
