BOSTON GLOBE REPORTS NO SETTLEMENT YET OF BOSOX BIAS DISPUTE

          A "leading civil rights activist has dropped efforts to
     help" the Red Sox negotiate a settlement with a former
     employee who says he was the target of racial harassment
     from co-workers, "accusing the team of failing to deal in
     good faith," according to Adrian Walker of the BOSTON GLOBE. 
     Rev. Charles Stith, President of the Organization for a New
     Equality, said that he was asked by attorneys for the former
     employee, Thomas Sneed, to try to mediate the dispute.  But
     Stith said that he was "rebuffed" by the Red Sox when he
     approached team CEO John Harrington about settling.
     According to Stith, he and Harrington discussed the case for
     about a week "before Harrington told him he would rather go
     to court than settle" (Adrian Walker, BOSTON GLOBE, 1/31).
