     to affect the arena's opening (TORONTO STAR, 7/16)....Scott
     Clark, President of Clark Companies, a design and
     construction firm which specializes in athletic fields,
     estimates that the installation of a grass field at Giants
     Stadium will cost $2.5-3M, plus $400,000 to $500,000 a year
     in upkeep.  Giants Stadium is the "first and only testing
     ground" for Clark's new system and Clark's work at the
     Meadowlands is profiled in today's N.Y. POST and N.Y. DAILY
