GREECE'S BID LEADER, ANGELOPOULOS, WON'T HEAD 2004 GAMES

          Gianna Angelopoulos, who last month became the first
     woman to lead a city's successful bid to host the Olympics
     when Athens was awarded the 2004 Games, said that she "has
     no intentions" of becoming CEO of the Athens Organizing
     Committee, according to Philip Hersh of the CHICAGO TRIBUNE. 
     Angelopoulos: "I did my job (as bid committee chief), and I
     believe I did it perfectly.  I don't want anything in
     return.  All I want is to help."  Under its deal with the
     IOC, Athens has seven months to put an organizing committee
     "in place" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 9/26).
