OLYMPIC NOTES

     It will take a special resolution from House Speaker Newt
Gingrich to allow the Olympic torch to be displayed overnight on
the Capitol lawn, with no advertising allowed (CHICAGO TRIBUNE,
6/4)....Noting that Jim Courier and Michael Chang turned down
invitations to play in the Olympics, Jody Goldstein of the
HOUSTON CHRONICLE writes, "Once again tennis players prove they
are among the most selfish athletes" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE,
6/1)....A front page article in the WASHINGTON POST claims that
3.5 million tickets remain, and even tickets to the Opening
Ceremonies, which are officially sold out, "can be had if you
have the right corporate connections" (WASHINGTON POST, 6/3).
