TWINS TALKS SPIRALLING TOWARDS CLIMAX: SPECIAL SESSION IN MN

          The Twins pursuit for a new ballpark is "creeping
     toward a political climax," as a special session convenes
     today in St. Paul to "determine the fate" of MLB in MN (Jay
     Weiner, Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 10/23).  A STAR TRIBUNE
     editorial this morning states that if the Twins leave MN,
     the Minnesota "economy and culture will be poorer and more
     isolated" (Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 10/23).  In St. Paul,
     Patrick Sweeney reports that Twins Owner Carl Pohlad bought
     full-page ads in both Twin Cities newspapers "to deliver a
     message to the public and to lawmakers."  In the ads, Pohlad
     said he "is willing to discuss" a ballpark contribution, and
     also "pledged, as a show of good faith," that if he sells
     the team to NC investor Don Beaver, he "will donate the
     difference between his investment in the team and Beaver's
     purchase price to local charities" (PIONEER PRESS, 10/23).
