DALEY GIVES MCPIER BOARD THE GO-AHEAD TO NEGOTIATE

     Chicago Mayor Richard Daley has given the Metropolitan Pier
and Exposition Authority Board permission to open talks with the
Bears about a domed stadium lease, according to the CHICAGO SUN-
TIMES.  The talks will determine if the team is willing to make
the $175M contribution needed to "make the project fly."  Daley
controls a majority on the McPier board and is holding out
"little hope" for the talks, predicting the Bears will eventually
come back to his Soldier Field plan (Fran Spielman, CHICAGO SUN-
TIMES, 4/3).
