AFTER GRENOBLE: ..
Brundage says Winter Games threatened

CHICAGO UP-Avery Brund-
age, 80-year-old president of the
International Olympic Commit-
tee, indicated yesterday that the
future of the Winter games is at
stake because of commercialism
arising in this year's Olympiad at
Grenoble, France.
"We have a committee now in-
vestigating the future of the Win-
ter Games," Brundage told a
meeting of the College Sports In-
formation Directors of America.
"They have grown too big and
too expensive. At Grenoble, we
had 3,400 journalists. We had
Olympic butter. We had Olympic
sugar."
Brundage told The Associated
Press later that, "I wouldn't go
as far as saying the Winter Games
will be abandoned. And they de-
finitely will be held as scheduled
in 1972 in Sapporo, Japan.
I SENTIMENT GROWING
"But there is some sentiment
to abandon them," Brundage said,
"and the investigating committee,
whose' chairman is Mr. Van Kar-
nabeek of The Netherlands, may
make a report at the Summer
Olympics in Mexico City in Oc-
tober.
"This sentiment has grown es-
pecially after the Alpine skiing'

treatment at Grenoble. It was a
bad experience given us by the
International Ski Federation.
There is just too much com-
mercialism."
Brundage appeared to be still
stinging from the celebrated ski
manufacturing incident at Gre-
noble. '
The skiers insisted that the
manufacturers' signatures and
labelsdremain on the skis and dis-
played them prominently when
photographed..t
WOULib YOU BELIEVE?
The ski federation prior to the
Games barred manufacturers' sig-
natures on skiis," said Brundage.
"Then when the events were
ready to go, the federation said
the signatures could not be re-
moved without disturbing the bal-
daily
sprts

ance, if you can believe such a
thing as that."
Asked if he thought the United
States had a chance to land the
Summer Games of 1976 or 1980
after last having them in Los
Angeles in 1932, Brundage said:
"I get around the world quite
a bit, and I am sorry to say that
the United States has very few
friends when it comes to voting
on international questions."
REVIEWS BOYCOTT
Brundage reviewed the entrance
of South Africa into the Games
at Mexico City and then the re-
versal to bar it because of threat-
ened boycotts on racial lines.
"You would think they would be
pleased that the blacks were given
a chance in the Games, but they
were not," he said. "The Olympic
Committee was thrown right into
the middle of this terrible racial
conflict-and this was exactly the
place we did not want to be found.
I finally came to the conclusion it
was not safe for a South African
team to enter the Games.
"It is a sad situation when
sports, designed to improve inter-
national relations, cannot because
of conditions that exist."
The Soviet Union and its bloc
were among those indicating a

boycott of the Games and because
of this stand, Brundage said:
"I fear that after the Mexico
City Olympiad, there no longer
will be a United German Olympic
team again-one made up of ath-
letes from both East and West
Germany. This had been a united
team for the last six Olympiads.
The Olympics did in sports which
never could be done politically."
Brundage asserted that, "I've
noticed almost a rebellion in col-
lege circles in this country" and
there are "indications that there
is something seriously wrong in
educational circles sand that a
change is needed."
SOCIAL FORCE
"The Olympic movement today
is the most important social force
in the world," he added. "It is ap-
preciated in many countries
around the world, if not in the
United States.
"In Mexico City, there is a real
spirit for the Games. The govern-
ment is restoring many old build-
ings and monuments, stone by
stone, because they are so pleased
Go be entertaining the world.
"Mexico is the most. stable and
fastest growing country in Latin
America and the Olympic move-
ment has no little part in making
it so."

That's a microphone'that George Culver is holding in his lap,
and he's about to use it to tell all the folks back home how their
littleol' George happened to become the first National League
pitcher to throw a no-hitter in 1968. Culver, a former Cleveland
reliever, allowed five walks, striking out three, in Cincinnati's
6-1 victory over Philadelphia. The lone Philly run came on two
errors and a sacrifice, and was unearned.

group

for

AAU's

By PHIL BROWN
The best pool sharks in the'
United States converge on Lin-
coln, Nebraska, this week for the
national AAU outdoor swimming
and diving championships, among
them a strong, contingent of Mich-
igan tankers hustling a share of
the big hardware.
Wolverine diving coach Dick
Kimball takes three swimmers, a
trio of divers, and two talented
coeds into today's start of the
five-day meet, the last big one
before the Olympic trials late in
Agust.
"They've all been swimming
real well," was Kimball's optim-
istic comment on the eve of the
big meet. "We've got Juan Bello,
Gary Kinkead, and Mike Casey
down here, as well as Carl Robie
(a Michigan alumnus and a vet-
eran of the '64 Olympics).
Also representing the Wolver-
ines are divers Jay Meaden, Bruce
MoManaman, and Alan Gagnet.
Michigan also sends an extra add-
ad attraction with the road show
-- defending one-meter women's
diving champ Micki King (also an
alumnus) and sophomore Lani
Loken, whose father reigns as var-
sity gymnastics coach.
tok#en, carefully avoiding pref-
erental treatment for his talented
daughter, had glowing words for
the divers. "I know that with the
hard work and sincere effort these
kids 'put forward - and with the1
great coaching of Dick Kimball -
they'll all place high if not on top
of each event."
That's asking a lot of the Mich-
igan troupe, but they have the
credentials to merit the billing.
Bello is a versatile performer
who will -represent his home coun-
try of Peru in the Olympics, in
fact comprising something of a
one-man team.,
"Juan is swimming extremely
- well," noted Kimball.,"He's shav-
ing down (removing body hair for
extra speed) because the meet is
especially important for him. The
others are still holding off to peak
for the American Olympic trials
in August.
Monroe bitter
about Bullets'
araise refusal
MIAMI, Fla. (P)-Earl "The
Pearl" Monroe thinks Rick Barry
did the right thing in jumping to
the American Basketball Asso-
ciation and says he would follow
suit for six figures.
Monroe won rookie of the year
honors last year with the Balti-
more Bullets of the National Bas-
ketball Association. But he is
hardly impressed with the NBA.
"Pittsburgh of -the -ABA offered
me moM money and the only rea-
son I went to the NBA was to spe
if I could play with the best," he
said in a Miami news interview.
"Pride'played a big part in my
decision.",
"But I made a big mistake," he
added quickly. "And I'm paying
for it now. If I could advise any-
one coming out of college, I'd tell
them to go where the most money
is. I'd hate to see someone else
fall into the same bag I'm In."
Monroe, fourth leading scorer
in the NBA in his rookie year, was
in Miami for a basketball clinic,
part of the vice president's sum-
mer youth sports an'd recreation
program.

OLYMPIC HOPEFULS ALL, this group of Michigan divers
pauses during training in Florida for the national AAU outdoor
swimming and diving championships which start today in
Lincoln, Nebraska. Pictured from left are Dick Rydze, Lani
Loken, Jay Meaden, Wolverine diving coach Dick Kimball,
Alan Gagnet, Micki King and Bruce McManaman.

Casey led his freshman team-
mates to the Big Ten frosh cham-
pionship last spring, and is ex-
pected to become an important
addition to the varsity squad this
year.
Kinkead is entered in no less
than four events, with high hopes
of placing in his specialty, the
breaststroke.
Jay Meaden is among the fa-
vorites in the men's diving com-
petition, having already won the,
pre-qualifying meet. Teammate
Gagnet, unfortunately, failed to
get by the qualifier and is not eli-
gible for further competition.
Meaden goes in the three-meter

events, then moves to join Mc-
Manaman on the one-meter
board. Meaden is also entered in
tower diving, along with Rydze.
Micki King, presently with the
U.S. Air Force, must be the favor-
ite in the women's one-meter div-
ing on the strength of her win
last year.
Miss Loken was among the top
finalists in this meet last year,
and has done very well since then.
"We're still planning on peak-
ing later," adds Kimball. "The
Olympic trials are a whole lot
more important, but this is still
a big meet - the national cham-
pionships always are."

. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. ()-The1
United States Auto Club yester-
day released statistics on the 500-
mile race May 30 at the In-
dianapolis Motor Speedway to
support its decision last week to1
cut certain engine sizes.
Henry Banks, director of com-
petition, said a study by the En-
gine Evaluation Committee show-
ed turbocharged Offenhausers
and turbine-powered cars ran
nearly 3 miles an hour faster than
the competing Ford stock block;
engines.
Counting only laps run under
the green, "full competition" flag,
Banks said the research showed
the turbocharged Offy ran an
average of 163.339 miles per hour,
the Pratt & Whitney turbines at
163.073, the Ford Dohc at 160.793
and the stock block at 160.714.
Bobby Unser of Albuquerque,
N.M., won with a turbocharged
Offy. Joe Leonard of San Jose,
Calif., led much of the race until
a part failed in his turbine car.
"It was obvious from these fig-
ures," Banks said, "that these
engines had anf obvious advantage
and that something must be done
if we were to equate them. Thus
the cubic inch displacement of the
supercharged engine was lowered
from 170.856 to 161.703 and the
annulus inlet area of the turbine
from 15.999 to 11.999 square
inches in an attempt to meet the
equivalency."

DETROIT - Earl Wilson and
Dick McAuliffe slammed consec-
utive home runs and Wilson com-
bined with' Daryl Patterson on a
three-hitter as Detroit downed the'
New York Yankees 5-0 last night.
Wilson connected for his third
homer of the season opening the
third inning and McAuliffe fol-
lowed with his 13th against loser
Mel Stottlemyre, 13-8.
Two walks and an infield hit
set up Al Kaline's two-run double
in the fourth and Norm Cash
doubled and eventually scored on
a ground out in the fifth.
Wilson, 9-8, did not allow a hit
until Jake Gibbs singled with
two out in the fifth inning, and
Wilson yielded only two more hits
before Patterson relieved when the
first hitter walked in the ninth.
The victory retained Detroit's
seven-game lead in the American
League over Baltimore and Cleve-
land.
BOSTON - Brooks Robinson
broke up a scoreless duel with a
two-run single in the sixth inning
and singled home another run
to help spark a six-run seventh
yesterday as Baltimore trounced
Boston 8-3.
