corporate sponsorships of stadiums and arenas.  Causey:  If their
new stadium is built, the Milwaukee Brewers will play in Put-
Your-Advertisment-Here Field" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL,
9/9)....In Sunday's PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, James O'Neill writes,
"The [state of NJ's] decision to rename the Byrne Meadowlands
Arena is part of a growing trend among cash-strapped governments
to raise extra revenue without raising taxes" (PHILADELPHIA
INQUIRER, 9/10)....Jeff Borden examines PSLs in CRAIN'S CHICAGO
BUSINESS noting that they  could prove to be "valuable assets" to

sold for $1,000 in '68, are now going for $15,000.  Borden notes
a comparable investment in Standard & Poor's 500 index stocks in
'68 would only yield $13,679 (CRAIN'S CHICAGO BUSINESS,
9/11)....The MCI Center ran a quarter-page ad in Sunday's
