LOPIANO ON STATE OF WOMEN'S SPORTS; POSSIBLE HOOP LEAGUE

     Women's Sports Foundation Exec Dir Donna Lopiano is featured
in an Q&A with the DALLAS MORNING NEWS.  Lopiano on a women's
basketball league: "We will see women's professional basketball
in Dallas after the '96 Olympic Games.  I think the cream of the
crop will stay together on the national team through '96.  Then
you'll see a draft in '96 and a full blown league take off."  On
the recent Congressional oversight hearing on Title IX: "I don't
think this Congress is going to line up with football.  I don't
think they'll antagonize the generation of moms and dads who
believe their daughter should get a fair shake" (Ken Stephens,
DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 5/18).
