OLYMPIC NOTES

          MORE REAX FROM NAGANO: In Toronto, Al Strachan: "The
     people who ran this Olympics did so with a degree of
     gentility, civility and politeness that absolutely
     astonished Olympic veterans" (TORONTO SUN, 2/24).  In San
     Jose, Ann Killion: "Japan restored dignity to the Games. 
     The corporate sponsors were here but low-key" (MERCURY NEWS,
     2/24).  In Boston, Bob Ryan: "The Nagano Olympics worked for
     everyone. ... The Olympics are the Olympics are the
     Olympics, and if American TV can't get a proper handle on
     it, the fault lies within itself, not the event it is trying
     to cover" (BOSTON GLOBE, 2/24).  A SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
     editorial: "The Olympics have become an overly commercial,
     overly professional and overly political event, but they
     still have their moments" (EXPRESS-NEWS, 2/24).
