49ERS OWNER HITS CAMPAIGN TRAIL FOR NEW STADIUM-MALL COMPLEX

          49ers Owner Edward DeBartolo, "who has been all but
     invisible" during the team's campaign for a new stadium
     complex, "debuted as a political barnstormer" Friday,
     according to Epstein & Yoachum of the S.F. CHRONICLE. 
     DeBartolo, after "wooing" voters in the city's North Beach
     neighborhood: "We've offered something so fair, something
     that absolutely works, that it would be folly to say we
     would ever try a referendum again. ... I've heard people say
     that Ed DeBartolo is going through the motions in this
     campaign, that he wants to move the team.  That is
     balderdash, to use a printable word" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 4/12).
          ON A MISSION: Opponents of the $525M stadium-mall
     complex are "kick-starting" their campaign by opening a
     headquarters in one of the city's most densely "owner-
     occupied" neighborhoods and "vowing to turn out the vote"
     among the city's homeowners (S.F. EXAMINER, 4/12).
