MOBIL STILL IN RUNNING FOR TRACK & FIELD SPONSORSHIP?

            At a news conference for the Mobil Invitational in
     VA, Mobil Corp.'s GM Bill O'Leary "left the impression ...
     that despite earlier reports, this may not be the final
     Mobil Invitational," according to Kathy Orton of the
     WASHINGTON POST.  Mobil said earlier this year that it had
     decided to terminate its association with track and field
     after this season, ending 16 years as the sports' main
     sponsor. O'Leary: "We have not made that decision.  [Mobil
     Invitational Meet Dir] John [Cook] and I are in
     conversations about his vision and what role Mobil will or
     will not play.  We have not closed out on a decision.  One
     thing we don't want to do is walk away from a showcase that
     brings stars like this" (WASHINGTON POST, 2/14).
