U.S. INDOOR TOURNEY NOT SOLD ON ADVANTA AND IMG OFFER

     Although Advanta has offered to sponsor the U.S. Indoor
Men's tennis tournament at the CoreStates Spectrum for the next
ten years and IMG has agreed to run the event, the Philadelphia
Indoor Tennis Corp. "is resisting," according to the PHILADELPHIA
DAILY NEWS.  Tournament Dir Tom Gowen said the group "is
concerned about area youth tennis programs continuing to receive
proceeds from the tournament" and that the money Advanta is
offering "isn't enough."  Another condition "bothering"
tournament officials is IMG's involvement.  Gowen:  "Without the
condition that IMG run (the tournament), the deal would have been
done a long time ago" (Bill Fleischman, PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS,
10/11).
