NAACP CANCELS TURKEY DAY BOYCOTT OF TEXAS STADIUM

     The NAACP may be close to reaching an agreement with Cowboys
Owner Jerry Jones over charges the team lacks minorities in the
front office and among stadium vendors. The group had threatened
a Thanksgiving Day boycott of Texas Stadium and was prepared to
picket on November 24.  NAACP's Southwest Region Director Shannon
Reeves said he was "very pleased" with the discussions, adding:
"The boycott is on hold until we finalize the agreement with the
Cowboys."  The two sides met for three hours yesterday based on
complaints by the NAACP that no black and few Hispanic vendors
are now doing business with Texas Stadium Corporation, and that
most of the Cowboys front office personnel is white (Vito
Stellino, Baltimore SUN, 11/8).
