CFL LEAGUE MEETINGS WRAP UP IN BALTIMORE

     When the CFL concluded its two days of meetings in Baltimore
this weekend, "team owners were able to measure progress in small
steps."  The aim of the meetings was to "solidify the rapidly
changing structure of the league."  The league made these
decisions:  The CFL established a Team Services division to
assist new franchises -- Baltimore owner Jim Speros will set up
the program; Calgary owner Larry Ryckman has temporarily stepped
down as chair of the expansion committee until his lease problems
are resolved; The marketing committee also discussed a name
change for the league.  Speros: "The plan is to have a new logo."
CFL Commissioner Larry Smith said he hopes to implement a U.S.
division by '96 (Ken Murray, Baltimore SUN, 12/10).
