Americans Pad Lead in Olympic
TOKYO OP)-Russia was expect-
ed to cut heavily into the Ameri-
can medal lead last night as judo
and gymnastics began to take
over at the Olympics after the
final track and field program led
to two American gold medals and
a second disappointment in four
years for high jumper John
Bob Hayes of Jacksonville, Fla.,

shattering victories yesterday and
five swift skippers in yachting
helped swell the U.S. medal total
to 86-the highest American level
in four Olympics since the Soviet
Union entered competition.
There were other outstanding
performances, in addition to the
American victories. New Zealand's
Peter Snell became the only gold
medal winner in two individual
track events by winning the 1,500-
meter run and Abebe Bikila of

As the hours passed, all the
others fell out of the competition
and only Brumel, the current
world record-holder, and Thomas

U.S. Basketball Team Plays
Russians in Olympic Finals
TOKYO RP)--The United States'
never-beaten Olympic basketball
team has only one more hurdle to
clear for its sixth straight cham-
But Lou Rossini, for one, thinks
they may not make it.
Rossini, the NYU coach who was
loaned out to coach Puerto Rico's
Olympic squad, watched h i s
charges take a 24-23 halftime lead:
over the'Americans before falling
62-42 in the semifinals last night.
The victory, the United States'
eighth straight in these Olympic
Games and 46th straight since the
sport was introduced to the Games
in 1936, put the U.S. into the finals
"The team has definite limita-
tions in material," Rossini said.'
"I don't think they can win if
they find themselves behind, be-
cause I don't think a pressure de-
fense would affect the Russians.
"The team also leaves something
to be desired in outside shooting
ability," Rossini continued. "The
Russians have plenty of experience
and are strong on both ends of
All of which brings one back
to a quip by Michigan's basketball
coach Dave Strack, when he said
that an all-star Big Ten basket-
ball team could give the Olympic
squad a good game.
The final-the fourth straight
time the U.S. and Russia have
met for the championship-was
set up when the unbeaten Rus-
sians edged Brazil, the 1963 world
champions, 53-47 in the other
semifinal. The title match is
scheduled for tomorrow night
The United States, surprised by
the aggressiveness of the smaller
Puerto Ricans, trailed by one point
at the end of the slow-moving first
half, then out-scored the Puerto
Ricans 22-5 in the opening min-
utes of the second half and put it
out of reach.
Princeton's Bill Bradley led the
attack with 16 points and Jerry
Shipp of Bartlesville, Okla., had 14.
Harris of Detroit was outpointed
by Poland's Jozef Grudzien.
They, however, added to the
U.S. medal total as all closing
semifinalists are given bronze
medals. The situation is the same
in judo, where Jim Bregman of
Arlington, Va., won a bronze in
the middleweight division under
the same circumstances.
Russia, meanwhile, earned two
bronzes in boxing and picked up
its other medals in gymnastics,
winning the women's team title
while Iarisa Latynia and Polina
Astakhova finished second and
third behind Czechoslovakia's Vera
Caslavska in the women's indi-
vidual all-around competition.
