LAST WEEKEND PUSH HAS NEW ANTI-ARENA COMMERCIAL IN HOUSTON

          A new anti-arena TV ad that is "general enough to be
     accurate, unlike previous" anti-arena TV ads, debuted in
     Houston yesterday, according to Eric Berger, of the HOUSTON
     CHRONICLE.  Paid for by the PAC Texans for Tax Limits, the
     ad states that public money should not be used for a private
     arena.  The ad is narrated by Texans for Tax Limits Chair
     Austen Furse, who says, "Why did we vote no on the arena
     last time?  We voted no because public money should not be
     used to build a private arena."  Furse, a former adviser to
     President Bush and a financial analyst, said that he and his
     family "paid most of the tab" for the commercial, without
     saying how much ad time was purchased.  Meanwhile, political
     analysts said that "anti-arena ads would have been more
     effective a month or more ago, before the pro-arena campaign
     began running a barrage of commercials focusing on a central
     message of no new taxes" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 11/3).
