CORPORATE REPORT: PEPSI REPORTS GROWTH; MILLER'S AD AGENCIES

     PEPSI:  According to Pepsi-Cola, the company posted its best
volume growth since '88. Total company U.S. case sales jumped
6.2% in '94.  Pepsi says its carbonated soft drink sales
increased 4.4%, compared to 3.5% for the overall soft drink
industry.  The company also notes that All-Sport became the
second best-selling sports beverage and credits that to its
partnership with the NCAA and its national ad campaign that
features Shaquille O'Neal (Pepsi).
     MILLER:  For the second time this week, Miller Brewing has
made changes in its ad agency roster.  Dean Scaros, CEO at Acaros
& Casselman Advertising said his agency has been hired by Miller
to handle several new-product assignments for which the total
billings were not disclosed.  Miller spokesperson Susan Henderson
said Scaros & Casselman would work on projects like Citro, a beer
with a slight lime flavor that was introduced in May (N.Y. TIMES,
2/3).
