  • GOOD NEWS FOR ACOG AS THEY ANNOUNCE STRONG TICKET SALES

         ACOG announced more than 326,000 people have ordered tickets
    to the '96 Games.  In Atlanta, Melissa Turner writes those
    numbers "far" exceed Olympic organizers expectations and breaks
    "all records previously set" by the '84 L.A. Games.  Orders
    averaged $1,100 for 17 tickets, but ACOG will have to refund some
    money once ticket confirmations go out this month and people
    "find out what they've won -- and lost -- in the ticket lottery."
    ACOG has budgeted $290M from ticket sales.  Turner writes the
    committee may "recapture much of the refunded money in a new
    surge of orders expected to begin once spectators get their
    ticket confirmations on September 22" (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION,
    9/1).
