L.A. TIMES REPORTS MONTANA TO RETIRE NEXT WEEK

     JOE MONTANA will announce his retirement next week in a
ceremony in San Francisco, according to Bill Plashke in this
morning's L.A. TIMES.  Plashke reports that Montana's relatives
have already flown from PA to San Francisco to join him, and that
"Montana has finally decided to listen to his aches, pains and
the wishes of his wife, Jennifer."  According to a source "close
to the situation," Montana is "sick of practicing and his wife
wants him at home."  The announcement "has been timed" to make
money available to the Chiefs before the draft (L.A. TIMES,
4/11).
