committee wouldn't release details of the recommendation made to

links between two members of the new nominating committee and
Bill Hybl, the leading candidate for President (Mike Spence,
Colorado Springs GAZETTE TELEGRAPH, 12/7)....The Danish
Government rejected a plan to have Copenhagen host the 2004
Olympics, saying it could not give the "necessary financial help"
because of the lateness of the bid (N.Y. TIMES, 12/7)....A plan
to secure airspace over Atlanta and the rest of Georgia during
the '96 Games will cost nearly $10M, according to the ATLANTA
CONSTITUTION.  Even corporations that have paid millions to

restricted areas" (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 12/7).
