IZZY TO JOIN UNDERDOG, SNOOPY, ET AL. HIGH ABOVE 5TH AVENUE

     Jackie Joyner-Kersee will join the 260-member Atlanta
Olympic Band and the giant six-and-a-half-story IZZY balloon in
this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City
(ACOG)....The U.S. Postal Service is "gearing up" for the '96
Olympics by making plans for commemorative stamps, pictorial
cancellations and athletes' ZIP codes.  Temporary postal stores
will be set up in and around the Olympic Village, which will get
its own ZIP code.  After the Games, metro Atlanta will be home to
more permanent postal stores than any other city (ATLANTA
CONSTITUTION, 11/19).  Groundbreaking for Stone Mountain Park,
which will be the site of three sports --  archery, cycling and
tennis -- takes place tomorrow (ACOG).
