The French president, who will
sit in a specially heated box, will
officially declare the Games open
during an extravaganza that will
see 30.000 perfumed artificial roses
rained on the crowd, parachutists
drop from the sky and a blast of
spectacular fireworks after lighting
of the traditional flame.
A swirling snowstorm had halted
training and raised fears Satur-

tiful again Sunday and prospects
are good for clear skies and cold

Ski Markings
Cause IOC
GRENOBLE, France (A', - A
dispute over the use of ski trade-
marks flared into a major con-
troversy here yesterday on the
eve of the tenth Winter Olympics.
Count Jean de Beaumont, pres-
ident of the French Olympic
Committee, formally demanded
an immediate emergency session
of the 72-member Internationa
Olympic Committee to discuss
whether Olympic skiers should be
compelled to remove trademarks
from their skis.
IOC President Avery Brundage
. of Chicago earlier had summoned
the 10-member IOC executive
board to a meeting at 9 a.m.
: 3 a.m. EST) today, only a few
hours before the opening of the
Grenoble Winter Olympics, to dis-
cuss the sudden crisis over ski
Brundage objected to a decision
of the International Ski Federa-
tion allowing trademarks to re-
main on skis at least during the
Grenoble games.
A FIS rule outlawing brand
names on skis has long been ig-
nored. When the IOC reminded
FIS of its own rule, a FIS meeting
promptly decided to suspend the
FIS changed its mind on the is-
sue for the current Olympics aft-
er strong protests from captains
of various teams. A number of
top skiers were reported to have
threatened to boycott the Olym-
pics if the ban were enforced.
Many of the world's top ama-
teur skiers have benefited for
years from the self-interested
generosity of ski manufacturers
-notably in the form of free skis
-without losing their amateur
Eventual Elimination
FIS President Marc Hodler of
Switzerland said the federation
still wants to stop manufacturers'
names appearing on competitors'
skis in future Olympics, but feels
this cannot be done at short no-
tice in the Grenoble games.
Strict application of Olympic
rules would now authorize the
IOC to expel FIS from the Olym-
pic family - leading to cancela-
tion of all ski events at Grenoble
and possibly at future Olympics.
