NEW TURF, OTHER TOUCH-UPS FOR EMMITT AND THE 'BOYS

     Texas Stadium is being fitted with a fresh artificial
surface and 21 new luxury suites behind both end zones, according
to the DALLAS MORNING NEWS.  Completion of the suites marks the
end of an expansion project begun in '93, when 59 boxes were
added.  Additions will bring the total number of suites to 373,
the most of any stadium in any sport.  Despite future renovation
plans, including an expansion to 104,000 and installation of a
grass field, the 15-year old turf is being replaced in order to
improve drainage, safety and overall appearance.  The redesign
will also include a perimeter track to aid camera trucks.  Work
should be finished by July 15, two weeks before the first
preseason game (Richard Alm, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 6/1).
