ESPN SPORTSZONE WEIGHS IN ON SHOE COMPANIES' LABOR PRACTICES

          ESPN SportsZone will study the issues surrounding the
     labor practices of athletic shoe companies during its five-
     part "Outside the Lines" series running April 2-8.  The
     interactive program will serve as a companion to tonight's
     "Outside the Lines" special on ESPN.  SportsZone will
     deliver original content, video footage of Asian working
     conditions, user polls, and an exclusive chat with "Outside
     the Lines" host Bob Ley.  Through a bulletin board, users
     can also interact with a special class at the Univ. of NC
     that is studying shoe companies' overseas labor practices
     (ESPN Internet Ventures).  In Raleigh, Jane Stancill reports
     UNC students will have electronic discussions on SportsZone. 
     The class is entitled "Economics, Ethics and Impacts of the
     Global Economy: The Nike Example" (NEWS & OBSERVER, 4/2).
