K.C. STAR OBTAINS TAX FORMS DETAILING CEDRIC DEMPSEY'S PAY

          Federal tax forms obtained by the K.C. STAR show that
     NCAA Exec Dir Cedric Dempsey's total compensation increased
     by more than $150,000 in one year, bringing Dempsey's total
     compensation for the FY ending August 31, '97 -- including
     benefits, deferred compensation and taxable expenses -- to
     $647,332, according to Steve Rock of the K.C. STAR.  Former
     NCAA President Gene Corrigan, who determined Dempsey's
     salary hike along with NCAA Exec Committee Chair Sam Smith:
     "We both said at the time, 'We may be criticized for this.' 
     It was a pretty sizable jump.  But it was the right thing to
     do.  We didn't want (Dempsey) to have any temptations to go
     after anything else" (K.C. STAR, 6/23).
