NIKE TAKES MORE STEPS TO COMPLY WITH CODE OF CONDUCT RULES

          Nike announced it has "severed" relationships with
     "several" Indonesian-based contractors "to maintain
     compliance with its Code of Conduct requirements for wage
     levels and working conditions."  In a statement released
     during its annual shareholders meeting, Nike said it has
     suspended production at the factories until they comply with
     its Code of Conduct and improvements are made (Nike).  The
     WALL STREET JOURNAL reports that Nike cut ties with "four
     factories in Indonesia where pay is below the government-set
     minimum wage."  In the last three months, Nike has also
     "scrutinized its operations in China, Vietnam and Indonesia
     to ensure compliance" with the code (WALL STREET JOURNAL,
     9/23). In the CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, Brad Knickerbocker
     writes on reports of working conditions at some Nike-
     contracted facilities in China under the header, "Nike
     Fights Full-Court Press on Labor Issue" (CSM, 9/23).
