TWINS' BELL SAYS AGREEMENT WITH BEAVER COULD COME THURSDAY

          "Even as a deal to sell the Twins appears imminent,
     advocates for a new ballpark are suggesting" to MN Gov. Arne
     Carlson that he "delay calling a special legislative session
     so they can round up more votes," a spokesperson for Carlson
     said Tuesday, according to Whereatt & Weiner of the
     Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE.  But Carlson is "refusing" any
     delay and his staff is working with legislative leaders to
     decide on a day during the week of October 20 to hold a
     special session.  Meanwhile, Twins President Jerry Bell said
     that an agreement to sell the Twins to NC businessman Don
     Beaver "is close and could be nailed down as soon as
     Thursday."  Bell "denied reports that Beaver would be in the
     Twin Cities today to sign a deal."  Twins Owner Carl Pohlad
     will be out of town today (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 10/1). 
     Beaver, on Tuesday, said, "We haven't submitted anything
     written yet" (AP/CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 10/1).
