CHICAGO 2008? SECOND CITY ORGANIZERS TALK OF POSSIBLE BID

     Chicago officials, upbeat about revenue from the World Cup
and next year's Democratic National Convention, "may be preparing
to stalk" the Summer Games.  Greg Hinz writes in the current
issue of CHICAGO magazine that William Daley, brother of Mayor
Richard Daley and co-chair of "Chicago '96," predicts that "talk
could turn more serious" regarding a bid for the Games.  Lesile
Fox, Exec Dir of "Chicago '96," the city's organizing committee
for next year's convention, says Chicago has most of the
facilities it would need for a Summer Games, and that a bid "is
something to consider long-term."  Also in the works -- a
possible Chicago bid for the Goodwill Games, NCAA Men's Final
Four and 2000 Republican National Convention (CHICAGO, 9/95
issue).
