    MEMBERS OF THE OLYMPIC TEAMS HAVE BEEN EXCHANGING TEAM BADGES AND AUTOGRAPHS AS MEMENTOES OF THEIR TRIP TO MEXICO.

    AT THE OLYMPIC VILLAGE ATHLETES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE BEEN EXCHANGING BADGES, TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS OF EACH OTHER, SWOPPING AUTOGRAPHS AND MINOR PERSONAL BELONGINGS. THERE ARE 6,000 OF THEM AND THEY HAVE BEEN HELPING THEMSELVES TO OTHER SOUVENIRS ABOUT THE VILLAGE -- LIKE ASH TRAYS AND BARS OF SOAP FROM THEIR LIVING QUARTERS.

    THE RUSSIANS ARE ESPECIALLY KEEN BADGE-SWOPPERS. SOME GO AROUND WITH LITTLE BAGS SLUNG AT THEIR WAISTS FULL OF SOVIET EMBLEMS -- RANGING FROM THE RED STAR TO PICTURES OF RED SQUARE -- READY TO TRADE THEM FOR ANY UNACQUIRED BADGE.
