OILERS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT TRYING TO KEEP OUT OF COURT

     The Oilers are scheduled to meet with Houston, Harris County
and Astrodome USA officials in an attempt to come to a settlement
on lawsuits filed by both sides.  John Williams reports in this
morning's HOUSTON CHRONICLE that the groups seek an agreement
that would force the team to stay in the Dome through the end of
their lease in '97, while the Oilers want to prevent the city,
county and Astrodome USA from blocking negotiations with
Nashville.  A source told the CHRONICLE that the Oilers, in
exchange for fulfilling their lease, want the city and county to
promise not to sue the NFL in the future (HOUSTON CHRONICLE,
9/7).
