NCAA GOES TO WORK FOR STUDENT-ATHLETES

          Beginning in the '97-98 academic year, student-athletes
     will be able to work for pay while school is in session,
     according to Ivan Maisel of NEWSDAY.  Proposal 62, passed in
     a 169-150 vote Monday at the NCAA Convention, will allow
     student-athletes to earn money up to the "cost of
     attendance," a formula that includes "incidental expenses
     and money to go home."  Also approved: any student-athletes
     who want to write newspaper columns, appear on TV or act in
     films will be allowed to do so (NEWSDAY, 1/14).
