STARS OWNER TOM HICKS PURSUING OWNERSHIP OF MLB RANGERS

          A spokesperson for Stars Owner Tom Hicks confirmed
     yesterday that Hicks "is leading an investors group that has
     been negotiating for several months to purchase" the MLB
     Rangers, according to Ken Daley of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. 
     Rangers President Tom Schieffer: "Traditionally, we have
     never discussed anybody's interest, and we're not going to
     start now."  Daley reports that Hicks "has previously
     mentioned his interest in the Rangers, and in pairing the
     local baseball and hockey franchises in an attractive, year-
     round broadcast package."  The Rangers' ownership group now
     has 28 members, but percentages of ownership by individual
     members are not made public (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 1/6).
