  • CORESTATES, WE HARDLY KNEW YA' -- FIRST UNION TO TAKE NAME

              First Union Corp. Chair Edward Crutchfield said that
         following the First Union acquisition of PA-based CoreStates
         Financial Corp., First Union's name "will go on" the
         CoreStates Center and that First Union will take over title
         sponsorship of the annual CoreStates U.S. Pro Cycling
         Championships (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 11/20).  Also in
         Philadelphia, Paul Davies reports that the CoreStates Center
         "will be the First Union Center," and that the name change
         will "probably" go into effect in April after the deal is
         finalized (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 11/20).

  • STERN LIGHTENS UP ON POSSIBLE LEAFS/RAPTORS PARTNERSHIP

              NBA Commissioner David Stern said yesterday that the
         NBA "would do a lot to make it happen" if the Maple Leafs
         decide to move into the Air Canada Centre with the Raptors,
         according to Bill Harris of the TORONTO SUN.  Stern: "In
         principle, if it's better for the city to have two
         franchises in one building, we're all for it."   Harris:
         "This is a far cry from the combative Stern who attacked the
         Leafs a little more than a year ago."  Now Stern said any
         possible deal is "not an issue for us.  We made a commitment
         to have a building in Toronto" (TORONTO SUN, 11/20).
