SAGA CONTINUES FOR COOKE AS HE SEARCHES FOR NEW STADIUM SITE

     Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke is now facing "daunting and
perhaps insurmountable problems" at possible stadium sites in
Prince George's County, MD, according to today's WASHINGTON POST.
As with Cooke's past effort in Anne Arundel County, MD, anti-
stadium fliers are circulating and civic associations are
organizing, causing politicians to "feel the heat."  Local
environmentalist Robert Boone:  "The problem is his arrogance of
power, coming in and assuming that just because he can buy the
property, he can do whatever he wants."  Spokespersons for Cooke
promise that he will "seek dialogue with residents and political
leaders before announcing any new proposed stadium location"
(Gillis & Montgomery, WASHINGTON POST, 4/10).
