ADIDAS GOLF USA MOVES TO CARLSBAD; ADIDAS FACES LEGAL SUIT

          adidas Golf USA said it will move its business
     operations from Tualatin, OR, to the Carlsbad, CA,
     headquarters of Taylor Made Golf, which is also owned by
     adidas-Salomon, according to Bruce Bigelow of the SAN DIEGO
     UNION-TRIBUNE.  The two companies will continue to operate
     separately, but it was "unclear" whether the move was part
     of a reorganization announced by adidas on August 4.  adidas
     Golf USA, which has 30 employees, sells adidas-brand golf
     apparel, footwear and accessories in the U.S.  Most
     employees are expected to transfer to the new headquarters. 
     Taylor Made, which has "roughly" 300 full-time and 160 part-
     time employees, moved to the Carlsbad-based headquarters
     earlier this year (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 8/18).
          SUIT: adidas-Salomon AG was accused in a $1.2B lawsuit
     filed by Chinese political dissidents "of using slave labor
     in China to make World Cup 98 soccer balls."  The suit was
     filed on behalf of dissident Bao Ge and other current and
     former prisoners of Chinese work camps (BLOOMBERG, 8/19).
