ARENA BOWLING THE KEY TO THE PBA'S FUTURE?

     The expansion of professional bowling events into venues
with "significant seating capacity" is examined in this morning's
WALL STREET JOURNAL.  Frederick Klein reports that the PBA is
discovering that "more people will pay to watch" bowling if it is
taken out of the traditional venue of a bowling center and moved
to an arena setting.  The league recently filled a 3,000-plus-
seat venue in a Chicago suburb at $15 a seat, marking the fourth
event played in an arena setting this year.  PBA Commissioner
Mike Connor: "We're past the testing stage with this.  You're
going to see more of this in the future" (WALL STREET JOURNAL,
4/24).
