ACOG UNVEILS OLYMPIC VILLAGE PLANS

     On Tuesday, ACOG unveiled details of the Olympic Village and
Int'l Festival Area, a 250-acre complex calling it "a cross
between summer camp and Disneyland without the rides."  When the
Games begin, athletes, coaches and officials will take up
residence in the village carved out of Georgia Tech. "What
Atlanta's village may lack in the postcard scenery of Barcelona's
1992 seaside compound, it will try to compensate for in sheer
size, entertainment value and air conditioning."  The village
will offer an array of services, including a bowling alley, gift
shop, billiards, post office, foreign exchange bank, video
arcade, hair stylist, shopping mall and several McDonalds (Lyle
Harris, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 12/7).
