STADIUM ISSUE NOT GREETED RECEPTIVELY AT BOSTON HEARING

     With an October 13 deadline to produce a bill, the MA House
Ways and Means Committee held a "field hearing" last night in
South Boston on the megaplex.  Phil Primack of the BOSTON HERALD
notes that while both crowd size and intensity "were down by a
half," the message was the same as in the summer -- "no way."
Boston City Council President James Kelly: "A stand-alone
convention center is something that people across the board can
live with.  What we cannot live with is a baseball park, and a
football stadium would be equally disastrous."  Representatives
from the Patriots and Red Sox were not present, though they had
appeared before the committee last week.  The next "field
hearing" is scheduled for next week in Roxbury (BOSTON HERALD,
10/3).
