RYKA'S POE SAYS COMPANY GETTING "A LOT OF CALLS"

     Ryka Inc. CEO Sheri Poe is "scrambling to find investors who
can save it from possible bankruptcy" after L.A. Gear withdrew
from a $164.M acquisition deal last week.  Poe:  "We are getting
a lot of calls.  There are quite a few opportunities."  Poe is
also under fire for "her management style" and charges from
several Ryka employees that her "desire for personal gain were at
odds with her image as a crusader for women's causes."  Poe, who
has used her history as a rape victim to attract attention to the
company, formed Ryka in '87 with the philosophy of women gaining
empowerment through fitness (Chris Reidy, BOSTON GLOBE, 5/3).
