NAMES IN THE NEWS

     On "SportsCenter," Bob Ley's Cover Story was entitled "Have
Things Changed?" regarding the three years since MAGIC JOHNSON
announced he had contracted the HIV virus.  At the end of the
piece, Ley noted that Johnson has not been as visible in AIDS-
awareness efforts recently (ESPN, 11/7). ....JENNIFER CAPRIATI is
scheduled to play her first WTA Tour match tomorrow night at the
Virginia Slims in Philadelphia.  "Win or lose, Capriati seems to
have many of her peers squarely in her corner -- not to mention
tour officials glad to got one of their biggest drawing cards
back" (Darrell Fry, ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 11/8)....MARTINA
NAVRATILOVA is profiled by Curry Kirkpatrick in the latest issue
of NEWSWEEK (11/14 issue)....In a taped interview at halftime on
"Monday Night Football" last night, Cowboys owner JERRY JONES was
interviewed by ABC's Al Michaels.  When asked if it was
"conceivable" that he would ever coach the Cowboys, Jones replied
"No, not at all."  Jones continued, "For me to make the
investment, I had to run [the team].  I had to be involved off of
the field ... or I wouldn't have invested the money" (ABC, 11/7).
