Olympic Committee Reconfirms Detroit's Bid

Continued from Page 1)

Asked to whom he referred, the
Michigan governor said, "that is
obvious-you can guess."
He obviously referred to Los
Angeles, which had put up a
strong fight to get U. S. designa-
tion as a bidder for the games.
"We plan to hold the games in
a modern 1968 stadium and not in
a stadium used in 1932," Romney
1932 Carnival
This was a biting reference also
to Los Angeles, which sought to
hold the games in the Coliseum,
where the 1932 sports carnival
was last staged in the United
Even with the selection of De-
troit as the U. S. Candidate, there
is no assurance that the United
States will get the 1968 games.
It must still compete with a
number of other cities in the
meeting 'of the International
Olympic Committee in Narobi,
Kenya, in October.
Seek Games
Also seeking the games are
Mexico City, Vienna, Buenos Aires,
Lausanne, Switzerland and Lyons,
Some believe that a European
city would be favored by the IOC
although Arthur Lentz, assistant
director of the U. S. Olympic Com-
mittee, predicted the United States
would have a very good chance.
"Our position is a lot better
than it was sib months ago,"
Lentz said.
Stadium Plans
Detroit, plans to build a new
three-tier stadium, which would
seat 110,000 in the fair grounds
area of the city.
The huge arena would be fi-
nanced by money raised from state
taxes on horse racing receipts.
This is expected to amount to $1.6
million a year for 30 years.
Detroit, one of the most sports
minded of America's cities, also
has numerous other facilities for
the big athletic undertaking.

Inning Football T o Get T ryout

-AP Wirephoto
OLYMPIAD STADIUM-This is an artist's conception of Detroit's
proposed Olympiad Stadium to be built in time for the 1968
Olympics. Yesterday the United States Olympic Committee
' designated Detroit as the official U. S. entry for competing
against the representatives of other countries before the Inter-
national Olympic Committee which will select the host city
later in the year.

Bump Elliott has decided to give
Lee Wilson's pet project-inning
football-a tryout this spring in
place of the more conventional
clock-type football.
The game will be played on the
third Saturday of spring football
practice, May 4.
Wilson has been talking up this
idea for football. He claims that
the clock in football is "unneces-
sary, detrimental, inequitable,
frustrating and ridiculous."
No Clock
In place of the clock, Wilson
suggests using innings - 12 of
them will constitute a game.
What defines an inning?
According to Wilson, "a team's
half-inning on offense would be-
gin when it first has the ball ready
to play from a scrimmage forma-
tion after gaining possession, and
would end when it subsequently
forfeits possession. That is, it
shall not have used up its half-
inning on offense if it should gain
then lose legal possession without
having had an opportunity to at-
tempt a play from scrimmage."
An interesting sidelight to the
football played by inning system
is that, if a team is leading in the
final inning and it is the home
team, then that half inning will
not be played. This is similar to
the system in baseball.
Not Fair Test
"I don't think this game will be
a fair test of the system," said
Elliott, "because we won't be
playing to win."

Elliott feels that the inning
football will emphasize more ball
control. The teams will be re-
luctant to pass or take any other
chances which would cause them
to lose the ball and their chance
that inning.
Ball Control
A switch to inning football
means more ball control. This
brings to mind Woody Hayes,
Ohio State's coach. He emphasizes
ball control--knock 'em down and

grind out the yardage on the
"We aren't going to change our
strategy," Elliott emphasized. "It
won't help out ball club, if we
do. Our main objective in spring
is to prepare the players for fall."
Elliott was quick to make one
point clear-and with vehemence.
"The final game will not be play-
ed under the inning system. I
wouldn't change that for any-

The delegation said that the
University of Detroit Stadium,
seating 21,000, and the University
of Detroit Field House, seating'
9,000, would be used along with
the lavish Cobo Arena with a ca-
pacity of 12,000; the $56,000,000

pacity Olympia Stadium, where
the Red Wings now play hockey;
and Tiger Stadium, with a capa-
city of 53,000.
Detroit's Brennan Pool, with a
seating capacity of 10,000 has been
the scene of Olympic swimming
trials in the United States for the
last three games.
House Athletes
If Detroit gets the games, a
village would be built to house

athletes and officials at Wayne
State University in the city. l
"Every athletic event except
those for the equestrian events,
would be within a radius of 8
miles of the heart of the city,"i
Mayor Cavanaugh said.l
'The equestrian events probably1
would go to the Bloomfield Hunt
Club, 24 miles from the city, ori
the Grosse Pointe Hunt Club, 15
miles away.
Overwhelming Choice;
The choice of Detroit was over-l
whelming. Only a plurality of 21l
votes was needed among the 40
eligible voting board members.
Mayor Cavanaugh issued the
following statement:
"I am jubilant over the an-
nouncement of the U. S. Olympic
Committee reaffirming their Oc-
tober decision designating Detroit
as the United States site for the
1968 Olympic Games. Many years
of preparation were backed by the
teamwork of the men and women
of our city and the state.'

Use on Trains Leaving Ann Arbor
Return Limit to leave destination

NEW YORK (M)-The Amateur
Athletic Union claimed victory
Monday on one point in its drawn-
out dispute with the National Col-
legiate Athletic Association.
But the claim was immediately
challenged, by the NCAA.
The AAU announced that Gen.
Douglas MacArthur had ruled in
Its favor in the controversy over
dual sanctioning of open track and
field. meets. The NCAA said that
the general, arbitrator between the
two groups in their battle over
control of amateur athletics, mere-
ly had verified an earlier stand on
the issue.
The AAU has said that under in-
ternational rules, it is the only
group authorized in the United
States to sanction open meets,
those in which both student and
non-student athletes compete. It
claimed that a recent letter from
Gen. MacArthur to the two dis-
puting organizations upheld the
AAU contention and rejected the
application of the U. S. Track and
Field Federation for dual sanc-
tioning. The USTFF is allied with
the NCAA.
A portion of the letter read:
"It is my opinion that the
USTFF in approving, authorizing
and sanctioning the participation
of athletes under its jurisdiction
to compete in open track and field
meets and events in this country
should approve, authorize and
sanction the athletes themselves,
or the institutions of learning they
}. "{ ....:x:}:.: ' .Z: Qy }:: .r .. .. .":::1 :i:j }r ?
weiqhted base it's solid teek (or"

represent rather than the meet it-
self .. .
Don Hull, executive director of
the AAU, said that "under the
ruling, meet sponsors no longer
will be concerned with USTFF
"Walter Byers, Hull's counter-
part in the NCAA, countered by
saying that "the AAU must be
suffering from hallucinations or
wishful thinking if it interprets
General MacArthur's ruling" as a
rejection of the USTFF stand.
"The document recognizes and
approves USTFF sanctioning , au-
thority. To draw any other con-
clusion is simply denying the facts
of the matter," Byers added.
Byers quoted another part of
the MacArthur letter as sad ing
"No international body . . . can
establish rules governing intra-
American athletic competition."
The NCAA official asserted that
the AAU's claim to be the sole
sanctioning agency for open meets
in the U. S. under international
rules was negated by the general's

on trains departing prior to 4 A.M. April 16.
