BASEBALL HALL OF FAME FEELS EFFECT OF HR RECORD

          The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY, has
     "concluded its busiest October ever," according to Murray
     Chass of the N.Y. TIMES.  More than 36,000 visitors
     "flocked" to the Hall of Fame during October to see goods
     and paraphernalia used by Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa as
     they broke MLB's HR record.  September attendance was up 78%
     from last year while the total attendance of more than
     70,000 for the last two months was a record for that period. 
     The Hall projects attendance for '98 to be up 12%, or about
     320,000, from '97, which would represent its first increase
     since '93 and its largest jump since '95 (N.Y. TIMES, 11/1).
