ARENA FOOTBALL KNOWS THE WAY TO SAN JOSE

     Arena Football League Commissioner Jim Drucker will announce
tomorrow that San Jose will be one of five cities to field new
franchises in '95 as the league expands to 16 teams in four
divisions.  The San Jose franchise will play its games at San
Jose Arena beginning in May, 1995.  Drucker would not identify
the ownership group, "but he did say it paid $750,000 for the
franchise -- something of a bargain considering a franchise
scheduled to begin play in the 1997 season was sold" for $1.25M.
Des Moines, Hartford, Memphis and St. Louis will join San Jose in
the '95 expansion (Robert Kuwada, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 12/5).
