ABC INTERNATIONAL: Seeks Extension of Deadline to File Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------
ABC International Traders, Inc., debtor, seeks to further
extend the deadline to file a plan of reorganization.  The
debtor is seeking a court order extending the date from
December 10, 1997 to and through January 31, 1998.  After
favorably resolving the judgment claims of Rausch and
Michanie, the debtor has determined that the best option
for the debtor to emerge from bankruptcy is through a
dismissal of the case rather than pursuant to a confirmed
operating plan of reorganization.  The Official Committee
of Unsecured Creditors has agreed to the dismissal and the
hearing is set for December 17, 1997, after the current
deadline for filing of a plan.

The debtor would like to preserve exclusivity while it
anticipates the dismissal of the case. A hearing on this
matter has been set for January 14, 1998.


BARNEY'S: Presentment of Stipulation
------------------------------------
On December 18, the debtor, Barney's, Inc. et al., will
present, for approval, the Stipulation among the debtors
and 106 Seventh Holding, LLC, as successor in interest to
the Hokkaido Takushoku Bank, Ltd.

The Stipulation provides for the transfer to Oaktree of the
following properties collectively as an undivided
portfolio: a building located at 106-110 Seventh Avenue,
New York, NY, the condominium unit known as Unit B, located
at 130 West 17th Street, New York, NY, a building located
at 136 West 17th Street, New York, NY, the property,
including the parking lot, located at 224-226 West 18th
Street, New York, NY and the leasehold interest in a
portion of the building located at 201 West 16th Street,
New York, NY.

Initial credit bids by Oaktree total $11 million.
Oaktree and its affiliates are significant creditors of the
debtors and the settlement contemplated is integral to the
confirmation of a plan or plans of reorganization of the
debtors.  


DOEHLER-JARVIS: Court Sets Bar Date of February 9, 1998
-------------------------------------------------------
The court has entered an order that all persons or entities
wishing to assert a claim against any of the debtors are
required to file a proof of claim form on or before
February 9, 1998.

The debtors include Doehler-Jarvis, Inc., Harvard
Industries, Inc. Harvard Transportation, Inc. Doehler-
Jarvis Greeneville, Inc. Doehler-Jarvis Pottstown, Inc.,
Doehler-Jarvis Technologies, Inc., Doehler-Jarvis Toledo,
Inc. Harman Automotive, Inc., Hayes-Albion, Inc., and The
Kingston Warren Corporation.


EVANSVILLE BREWERY: Bids to be Analyzed
---------------------------------------
The Evansville Courier reported on December 12, 1997 that a
bankruptcy judge is expected to determine who gets to buy
the assets of Evansville Brewing Co. Meanwhile, beer
distributors and brewery employees dwell in uncertainty
over the future of the brewery and its products.

But at least this much became clear, Judge Basil H. Lorch
III will have bids to consider. Stanley Talesnick, the
company's bankruptcy attorney, said bids were submitted to
his Indianapolis office in advance of the deadline
Thursday. But details -- including number of bids received,
bidder identities and whether they bid on parts or all of
the company -- are secret.

Talesnick and Evansville Brewing directors will analyze the
bids before submitting them -- "hopefully with a positive
recommendation," Talesnick said --to Lorch at a federal
Bankruptcy Court hearing Tuesday in Evansville. Bidders
were free to bid on part of the company, such as one or
more of the brands of beer it brews, or the entire
operation.

Pittsburgh Brewing Co., based on interest shown in October,
was expected to be one of the bidders, but is believed
interested in adding brands to brew in its own
undercapacity brewery. Michael Lynch, CEO of Michigan
Avenue Partners in Chicago, said Thursday he
bid on the whole operation, speculating he was the only
bidder who intends to restart the 147-year-old brewery.
Lynch offered $3 million for the brewery in October, but
brewery officials said he didn't come through with earnest
money.

It's ultimately up to Lorch to decide which bidder or
bidders offer the best deal. "The judge is really in a hot
spot," said Tim Turner, general manager of Central Beverage
Co., the exclusive distributor in Evansville of Evansville
Brewing products. But so is Turner, whose company has
considered a variety of options in the event the Evansville
brewing plant closes down for good. Those options include
"the need to reassess our manpower needs," or acquiring one
or more new brands to replace Sterling, Falls City, Gerst
and other products from Evansville, Central's second-
biggest supplier behind the national Miller brands.

"We've looked at a lot of different options, none of them
easy or inexpensive," Turner said. "But it's reached a
point where we have to look selfishly at what we can do
to keep our business operating," he said. The best-possible
conclusion to the bankruptcy process is the successful
bidder will buy it all and get the beer flowing next month
out of the plant at Lloyd Expressway and Fulton Avenue.

Evansville Brewing President and CEO Stephen Cook said
Thursday it would take four to five weeks to get a new
yeast supply and get the beer flowing again. Turner said
Central has enough Sterling and other popular brands on
hand to make it until then.

But there's also a chance the best solution for the brewery
creditors will send its brands to one or more other
breweries. No beer has been brewed since Oct. 1, when the
New York branch of National Bank of Canada froze the
company's accounts. The bank claims Evansville brewing owes
it $2.3 million. The company also owes local governments
$332,000 in sewer, water and property taxes


EXCALIBUR FINANCIAL: Seeks to Retain Wolff Ardis PC
---------------------------------------------------
Excalibur Finacial Services LP, PBC Servicing Corporation
and Rapid Acceptance Corporation, debtors, seek to employ
and retain Wolff Ardis, P.C. as attorneys for the debtors.
The debtors seek to employ the firm with regard to the
filing and prosecution of debtors' claim against CS First
Boston and possibly others arising out of CS First Boston's
failure to fulfill its lending obligation, effective as of
the Petition Date.

Hourly fees for attorneys with the firm range from $300 to
$75 for a paralegal.


FLAGSTAR: Seeks Distribution Record Date
----------------------------------------
Flagstar Companies Inc., Flagstar Corporation and Flagstar
Holdings, Inc., debtors seek an order setting the
Distribution Record Date with respect to holders of the 10
3/4% Senior Notes due 2001, 10 7/8% Senior Notes Due 2002,
11.25% Senior Subordinated Debentures due 2004, 11 3/8%
Senior Subordinated Debentures due 2003 and 10% Convertible
Junior Subordinated Debentures due 2014.

By this motion, FCI and Flagstar request the entry of an
order establishing January 2, 1998 as the Distribution
Record Date.  They currently contemplate that the Effective
Date will occur on or about January 7, 1998.


FLOWIND CORPORATION: Opposition to Overbid Procedures
-----------------------------------------------------
J,H. Military Trail, Inc. (JHMT) objects to the motion for
order approving overbid procedures and break-up fees for
forthcoming sale of Windfarm Assets.  The objection is
based upon the grounds that JHMT holds a perfected security
interest in a power purchase contract between FloWind and
Pacific Gas & Electric, and JHMT believes that the motion
may contemplate the assignment of the power purchase
contract free and clear of liens, without provision for the
security interest of JHMT.  JHMT holds a blanket lien in
all of the assets of Flow Employee's Partnership II, of
which FloWind is the general partner  The debt secured by
FEP II's assets, including its interest in the power
purchase contract exceeds $1.7 million. The pledge to
JHMT's rights in the power purchase contract were
reaffirmed in a restructuring agreement.

JHMT objects to the sale unless it is adequately
compensated for the loss of its security interest.


HFH: Creditors To Receive First of Two Payments
-----------------------------------------------
The Louisville Courtier-Journal reported on December 12,
1997 that creditors of HFH Inc. will receive the first of
two payments next week in the bankruptcy case of the
company, which was once one of Jefferson County's largest
developers. Checks totaling $1.75 million will go to about
160 unsecured creditors in a small payment next week and a
larger one in March, said Jay S. Geller, a
Chicago attorney who represents those creditors.

Creditors will get more than 74 percent of their court-
approved claim amounts, which Geller said is an
extraordinary result for a bankruptcy. The payments will
end a case that at one point involved about $120 million
in claims and saw subdivisions transferred to new owners to
settle debts. HFH filed for bankruptcy in January 1996,
about six months after it was forced to halt work on parts
of its largest subdivision, Springhurst. Banks had
cut off the flow of money after HFH fell into financial
difficulty following the death of its lead partner, Harry
Frazier, in late 1994.

HFH sold two eastern Jefferson County golf courses and
turned over several development properties to banks last
year to settle debts. That left unsecured debts to be
resolved by the bankruptcy court. Under a reorganization
plan approved by creditors and U.S. Bankruptcy Judge
David Stosberg, HFH was allowed to keep some residential
developments. But Frazier's widow, Jean W. Frazier, who
succeeded him as HFH chairman, dropped claims to most of
the millions of dollars he had pumped into the company.

"I think that Jean wanted to do what was right for
creditors," Geller said. "I don't think she was happy with
the fact that creditors were getting hurt, people in this
community."  The reorganization plan that Stosberg approved
last December put aside $2.4 million to satisfy unsecured
claims and other costs. That amount was dwarfed by
the total amount creditors sought. However, a creditors'
committee filed hundreds of objections to individual
claims, many of which were dismissed or whittled down in
hearings and negotiations last spring and summer.

After attorney fees and funding of settlements related to
the case, $1.75 million was left for distribution to
unsecured creditors, or just over 74 cents on the dollar,
Geller said. The checks that go out next week will
represent 7.77 percent of the court-approved claims, he
said.

The second checks, in mid- to late March, will represent
about 66.5 percent of the approved amounts. To receive the
second check, creditors sign a release of any further
claims against HFH, its former principals or the Frazier
family, Geller said. Many creditors signed releases when
they voted on the reorganization plan, but those
who didn't will receive a release form and return envelope
with their check next week.

Geller applauded Stosberg, Frazier and local creditors for
the speed with which the bankruptcy was wrapped up. "We
were able to resolve hundreds of claims rejections in a
rapid, non-litigious way based on the reasonableness of
the business folks down there," he said.


KIWI AIRLINES: Legislators Not Backing Off on Demands
-----------------------------------------------------
The Buffalo News reported on December 14, 1997 that                          
Kiwi International Air Lines may be frustrated with delays
in bringing low fares to Niagara County, but lawmakers are
not backing off their demands on the airline.
A resolution eliminating two key elements of the county's
$550,000 loan to Kiwi will be withdrawn from the
Legislature's agenda, according to County Legislator Robert
R. Villani, R-Town of Niagara.

Villani's comments indicate the county is standing firm in
its demands, despite Kiwi's threat that it may choose
Rochester instead of the Niagara Falls International
Airport. The proposed changes in the Kiwi deal would have
dropped a requirement for advance ticket sales and replaced
a personal loan guarantee with some loan collateral --
about $1.1 million worth of stock. The measure is on the
agenda for Tuesday's Legislature meeting. Villani,
however, said it will not be voted on.

Furthermore, he does not think anything will be done on the
Kiwi deal until the Commerce, Transportation and Tourism
Committee holds its next regular meeting on Jan. 14.
The committee's last meeting on Wednesday was snowed out
but Villani, the committee chairman, said no action was
planned on the Kiwi loan. A special meeting will be called
"only if Kiwi were to press us," he said. "I don't think
they're going to press us."

Kiwi Chairman Charles Edwards said last week that his
airline is negotiating with Rochester to add that city to
its schedule, instead of Niagara Falls.   Villani, a
leading champion of the effort to bring the low-fare
airline to Western New York, took issue with Edwards'
statements that Niagara County keeps adding new demands for
information and safeguards from Kiwi. The airline
emerged from Bankruptcy Court five months ago.

Villani said Joseph Logan, a major Kiwi investor who was
asked to personally guarantee the loan, came up with an
alternative idea -- offering stocks worth twice the amount
of the loan as collateral. Villani said the county has to
scrutinize the stock list to make sure the securities have
sufficient value. "If he gives us stocks and we recognize
that they're solid, blue-chip, that's great," Villani said.
However, he indicated there are questions about
the quality of the stock list.

He defended the county's demands for detailed, audited
financial information from the airline, and denied the
county is responsible for any delays.  "We're not talking
about your money or my money, we're talking about
everybody's money," Villani declared.


KOENIG SPORTING: Seeks Extension of Exclusivity
-----------------------------------------------
Koenig Sporting Goods, Inc. moves the court to extend the
periods during which the debtor has the exclusive right to
file a plan of liquidation or reorganization and to obtain
acceptance of such plan.

The current period of exclusivity expires on December 15,
1997 and the period to obtain acceptances to the plan
expires on January 14, 1998.  The debtor requests a sixty-
day extension for each period, to and including February
13, 1998 and April 14, 1998 respectively.

The majority of the debtor's asserts were sold to Kinney
Shoe Corporation in a complex transaction involving 25 of
the debtor's 40 stores.  The debtor rejected the leases at
the 15 stores that were not part of the sale.  In order to
maximize value to the estate, the debtor has worked to
liquidate its remaining assets in a timely and expeditious
manner.  While this process is well under way, several
stores remain to be closed before the debtor can be
sufficiently assured of what monies it will have available
for distribution under a plan of liquidation.  

So that the debtor has time to conclude its
responsibilities under the terms of the Sale, the Going Out
of Business Sales and its remaining real and personal
property lease, the debtor seeks this extension of time to
file a plan of liquidation and disclosure statement.  


L.LURIA: Seeks Order Authorizing Rejection of Lease
---------------------------------------------------
The debtor, L. Luria & Son, Inc. seeks a court order
authorizing the rejection of an standard shopping center
lease in Boynton Beach, Florida between the debtor and VSB,
Limited. Gordon Brothers has completed the going out of
business sale at the Boynton store.  The debtor sold all of
the furniture, fixtures and equipment in the store to
International Asset Recovery pursuant to orders entered by
the court.  The debtor no longer requires the premises, and
consequently seeks the entry of an order authorizing the
rejection of the lease.


L.LURIA: Seeks to Assume and Assign Leases
------------------------------------------
The debtor, L. Luria & Son, Inc. seeks a court order
authorizing the debtor to assume and assign four leases of
non-residential real property, one located in Hialeah,
Florida, one located in Miami, Florida, one located in Ft.
Myers, Florida and the fourth located in Naples, Florida.

The debtor received an offer of $50,000 from Fabri-Centers
of America, Inc. for the acquisition of the debtor's
interest in the lease covering the premises located in Ft.
Myers, Florida.  The debtor has received an offer from La
Ideal for $100,000 to acquire the debtor's interest in the
lease covering the store located in Hialeah, Florida.  The
debtor received an offer from John E. Montana and Anthony
Sarvanos of $75,000 to acquire the debtor's interest in the
lease covering the property in Naples, Florida. And the
debtor received an offer of $50,000 to acquire the debtor's
interest in the lease covering the property in Miami,
Florida. (The assignees will cure previous defaulted rent
payments in the Miami, Naples and Ft. Myers locations).


LOUISE'S TRATTORIA: Committee's Advisors To Value Bids
------------------------------------------------------
On December 10, 1997 Judge Samuel L. Bufford entered an
order stating that the Creditors Committee is authorized by
the court to instruct its financial advisor, Price
Waterhouse LLP to perform an evaluation of any non-cash bid
portions of bids for the purchase of the assets of the
debtor estate and submit the same to the court for its
consideration.


MARVEL: Court Will Appoint Trustee
----------------------------------
Marvel Entertainment Group, Inc. (NYSE:MRV) today reported
that Judge Roderick McKelvie of the U.S. District Court in
Delaware will issue an order to the U.S. Trustee Office to
appoint a trustee who will replace the current board of the
Company.

Executive Officers of Marvel will remain in place, and will
continue to conduct operations consistent with their
business plans.  The secured lenders have indicated in
documents filed with the Court that they have no desire for
the Company to change direction, focus or strategy in
connection with its business plans, or to run the operation
differently from how it is currently being managed.  In
connection with the appointment of the trustee, Chase
Manhattan Bank has agreed to underwrite a new facility
which will provide the Company additional liquidity.


MONTGOMERY WARD: Seeks Retention of McDermott, Will & Emery
-----------------------------------------------------------
The debtors, Montgomery Ward Holding Corp., et al., seek
court authorization to retain and employ McDermott, Will &
Emery as Special Labor and Employee Relations Counsel.

The firm currently is employed as ordinary course
professionals up to $25,000 per month.  However, due to
unforeseen complications in a Wyoming Class Action
Litigation and several arbitration proceedings commenced in
California, the debtors believe that the fees and expenses
of the firm will exceed the $25,000 limit.

The debtors request that they be able to retain the firm as
their special labor and employee relations counsel to
represent the debtors in the Class Action and California
litigation and such other labor and employee relations
matters as the debtors deem appropriate.  As of the
Petition Date, billed but unpaid fees and expenses to
McDermott, Will & Emery were $269,970 and paid post-
petition services were $87,804.

Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue and co-counsel, Richards, Layton
& Finger will continue to act as general bankruptcy and
reorganization counsel for the debtors in these cases.


TCC: Executives Want Stock in Exchange for Profits
--------------------------------------------------
The Austin Business Journal reported on December 12, 1997   
that the new leaders of an Austin company seeking to right
itself financially will later this month ask shareholders
to reward them with up to 6 million discounted shares of
company stock if they're able to turn the business around.

And, in that attempt, they will change the focus of the
business from souvenirs to financial services. TCC
Industries Inc. will ask shareholders Dec. 19 to approve
stock options for 16 company officers at a per-share price
established while the company's financials are weak, with
the hope the company's new focus will drive up the value
six times or more as the business becomes profitable.

The proposal is spelled out in a proxy statement filed with
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Nov. 12. TCC
executives declined to comment, because of an SEC-mandated
quiet period. According to the proxy statement, TCC's board
of directors believes the stock moves must be made in order
to attract and retain quality people who can move the
company forward. If the plan were approved, the 16 officers
would be authorized to purchase the stock at 130 percent of
its value at the time the stockholders approved the
issuance. The day before the proxy statement was filed,
that would have amounted to $4.69 per share.

The stock was trading at around $5.50 a share on the New
York Stock Exchange in early December, although it fell as
low as $1.50 per share during the first quarter of the
year.  The exact amount of stock the 16 officers would
receive would depend on how profitable the company becomes.
For example, if TCC's earnings climb to $10
million by October 1998, 1 million shares would be
available for the officers to acquire. The company would
have to earn $60 million between now and 2001 for
the full 6 million shares to become available.

TCC lost $1.7 million in 1996. If such a turnaround were
accomplished, the company contends in the proxy
statement that the stock price likely would rise
dramatically. For example, the statement takes the price-
earnings multiple of Standard & Poor's 500 and estimates
TCC could be valued at $60.79 per share if the company
reaches earnings of $10 million within the next year. Using
a more conservative price-earnings multiple derived from
comparing other similar financial services companies, the
statement estimates TCC's per-share price could be $32.78.

Earnings of that magnitude would be quite a turnaround for
the company. Over its 39-year history, the company has an
aggregate loss of $19 million - $4 million over the last
two years. But a lot has happened to TCC in the past
several months, including the first steps in completely
refocusing what business it conducts. TCC had operating
losses of $600,100 in 1994, $892,000 in 1995 and $1.7
million in 1996. For the nine months which ended Sept. 30,
the company lost $1.9 million, according to the proxy
statement.

Last April, stockholders began a movement to unseat company
board members Ed R.L. Wroe Jr. and William E. Callahan. In
May, Walter DeRoeck and Robert Thomajan were elected to the
board. In July, DeRoeck was appointed board chairman and
CEO of the company, and Thomajan was named president and
secretary. Under their leadership, TCC completed a long-
pending deal and sold one of its two operations. That
operation, a specialty bulk material conveying equipment
manufacturer called Meyer Machine Co., sold for $6 million
in cash in September. More important, the buyer also took
on all the company's liabilities.

That left TCC with only Allen-Lewis Manufacturing Co.,
which makes and distributes souvenir, novelty and gift
items. But Allen-Lewis lost $1 million in 1996 and $1.6
million in the first three quarters of 1997.  So, in
October, TCC changed gears. It formed new subsidiaries -
Paladin Financial Inc., Barton Creek Capital Corp. and
Texas Capital Markets Inc. - and entered the financial
services industry.

Paladin will originate, purchase, sell and securitize loans
and real estate mortgages. It has developed a Title I
manufactured-home loan origination program. Texas Capital
will assist Paladin by developing loan products and
programs, negotiating and closing bulk loan purchases,
developing and implementing loan disposition strategies,
and securing financing for Paladin's programs.

Barton Creek will provide merchant and investment banking
services, including private placements, mergers and
acquisitions. It will specialize in public, private, bridge
and mezzanine financing for emerging small cap, growth-
oriented public and private companies in the Southwest
United States. It is seeking a broker/dealer license from
the National Association of Securities Dealers. Those
businesses are taking TCC full circle. It was founded in
1958 as Texas Capital Corp. For the next 22 years, it
operated four subsidiaries conducting motor carrier
operations, wholesale distribution, manufacturing and
venture capital services.

At the end of 1980, the company's largest subsidiary, Red
Ball Motor Freight Inc., merged with another trucking
company to form the largest trucking company
in the nation. But 1980 was also the year the trucking
industry was deregulated and, by 1982, TCC had filed for
reorganization under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, after two
years of losses totaling more than $50 million. That
trucking company had composed 89 percent of TCC's revenues
in the 1980s.

In 1984, TCC emerged from bankruptcy and continued with an
air conditioning and heating equipment business, in
addition to its other remaining subsidiaries. In 1986, the
venture capital division was closed.   In 1992, the air
conditioning and heating business was sold, leaving the
machinery and souvenir businesses.

               
TODAY'S MAN: Bankruptcy Court Confirms Plan
-------------------------------------------
Today's Man, Inc. (Nasdaq: TMANQ), operating under the
protection of Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code as a
Debtor-in-Possession, announced, that in a hearing today
before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware, the Court
confirmed the Company's Plan of Reorganization.  The
confirmation of the plan sets the stage for the Company's
emergence from Chapter 11 protection in January 1998.

"Today's confirmation of our reorganization plan by the
Bankruptcy Court represents the clearing of the final
hurdle to our emergence from bankruptcy, scheduled for next
month," said David Feld, Chairman & CEO.  "We are pleased
that our performance through 1997 gave us the ability to
formulate the consensual plan which was confirmed by the
court.  We now look forward to 1998 and even greater growth
for Today's Man."


WESTERN PACIFIC: Court Approves PR Firm and Special Counsel
-----------------------------------------------------------
The court has approved the debtor's applications to employ
D'Ancona & Pflaum as special counsel to the debtor and
Abernathy/Macgregor Group, Inc. as public relations
consultant to the debtor.


WESTERN PACIFIC: Reports November traffic up
-------------------------------------------
The Denver Post reported on December 10, 1997 that Western
Pacific Airlines on Tuesday reported a 4.5 percent increase
in November passengers compared with the same month a year
ago. However, the low-fare airline had a 35.1 percent
increase in available seat miles, or ASM, meaning the added
seats didn't directly translate into more passengers.
WestPac had 2.98 million ASM last month, compared with 2.2
million in November 1996. Total passengers increased from
148,154 last November to 154,754 this year.

"Our November traffic results are not surprising in light
of our Chapter 11 reorganization," said Mark Coleman,
WestPac's vice president of marketing and planning. "Now
that we have received financing, our booking levels have
improved and we expect this trend to continue going
forward." Western Pacific, which flies to 12 U.S. cities,
filed for bankruptcy on Oct. 5 but received a boost last
week when a judge approved a $30 million financing plan to
keep the airline flying.
