STREET GOES WITH HURRY UP OFFENSE ON PHILLY STADIUM DEAL

          With two weeks to complete a stadium deal for the
     Eagles and Phillies, Philadelphia Mayor John Street has
     resumed his "urgent quest," and it appears that he has
     "abandoned hopes" of a Phillies ballpark at the 12th and
     Vine Street location near downtown and is "eyeing" a site in
     South Philadelphia, according to Dave Davies of the
     PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS.  City Council President Anna Verna
     said that stadium bills will have to be ready by November 16
     at "the latest" if Street wants them to be passed this year. 
     While "intense technical work" is under way, talks between
     the city and the Eagles and Phillies "haven't resumed."  But
     sources told Davies that "the focus is on South
     Philadelphia" (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 11/3).
