WORLD CUP SOCCER SURPLUS TO BE SPENT OVER TIME

     According to U.S. Soccer Federation Exec Dir/Secretary
General Hank Steinbrecher, the U.S. Soccer Foundation plans to be
"very conservative" with the $60M surplus from the World Cup,
"perhaps disbursing" somewhere between $5-6M a year.  That money
"presumably would come" from interest and investment of the
principal.  Steinbrecher: "We could spend all the money quickly
and make a terrific impact and get a pat on the back.  But I'd
rather have my grandchildren get that pat on the back."  A "prime
candidate" for early funds: "deprived economic areas" (Jerry
Langdon, USA TODAY, 12/1).
