COWBOYS DEAL WITH NAACP -- ADD MINORITY EXECUTIVE

     The Cowboys, accused by the NAACP of not hiring minorities
to help run the team, will hire at least one African-American to
their front office.  The person will most likely serve as a
director of community relations.  The Cowboys and NAACP will hold
a joint news conference today to announce the agreement.  The
NAACP had asked the team to "create a trio of vice president
positions for African-Americans in three areas: community
affairs, player relations, and minority procurement and
diversity" (Price & Fisher, FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 11/29).
