SOSA SET TO BE GUEST OF CLINTON'S AT STATE OF THE UNION

          SAMMY SOSA will be the guest of PRESIDENT CLINTON
     during tonight's State of the Union address, according to
     King & Orin of the N.Y. POST.  Sosa was flying in from the
     Dominican Republic and will "probably" sit with First Lady
     HILLARY CLINTON (N.Y. TIMES, 1/19).  Meanwhile, Ira Berkow
     reports that Sosa was a "no-show" at the Congress of Racial
     Equality (CORE) dinner last night in N.Y. at which he was to
     be honored.  CORE's Gen. Counsel MEL SACHS said that Sosa's
     appearance had been "confirmed three times but then 'they
     kept making more and more demands.'"  Sosa's agent ADAM KATZ
     called the statements a "distortion" (N.Y. TIMES, 1/19).
