Olympic committee
plans lower budget
Special to The Daily
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. - Determined to avoid the monetary morass of
Montreal and the multitude of organizational problems that have beset
Olympic host cities in the recent past, the Lake Placid Olympic Organizing
Conimittee (LPOOC) vowed that the 1980 Winter Games will be on schedule
and below the budget.
The LPOOC has budgeted a relatively modest $100 million for the finan-
cing of the Winter Games, allowing $71 million for construction and $25
million for administrative costs.
A PORTION OF the administrative dollars is being used for a national
promotional tour which stopped in the Detroit area yesterday for the weekly
meeting of the Detroit Sportscasters Association at Northland Stouffer's.
The media dined on turkey and gulped large quantities of free spirits
(courtesy of Sports Illustrated),' while featured speaker Sheila Young
Ochowicz and other LPOOC officials waxed confidence about the prospects
for a smoother and less commercial Olympics.
"We hope to return the Games to the athlete," said Ochowicz, triple
medal winner in speed skating at the 1976 Innsbruck Games. "Money has
been such a big deal in the last few Olympics that the athletes and their spor-
ts have been overshadowed."
TO HELP put the Lake Placid games back in perspective, the
organizers have consulted with environmentalists to guarantee that the
natural beauty of the area will stay intact after the spectators go away.
"We'll only be accommodating 51,000 fans a day," said LPOOC public
relations assistant Maureen Lewi. "The rest of the people will just have to
stay home and watch it on TV."
The people of the upstate New York town, which also hosted the Winter
Olympics in 1932, have gladly donated their time to help contain costs.
A PUBLIC referendum was held in Lake Placid before the town put in its
bid for the games and passed easily. This avoided the problem which oc-
curred in Denver, where the city had already been awarded the games when
a state referendum showed the people of Colorado just weren't interested.
Part of the Lake Placid austerity plan is based around building facilities
that will have practical use after the competition is over. So, the athlete's
housing complex will become a minimum security prison.
The new ice arena being built for figure skating and hockey will seat
only 8,000 people, because the town of 3,000 can't support an Olympic-sized
arena after the XIII Olympics close.
OCHOWICZ WAS also quick to point out that, although she is dimninished
to a non-competitive status by her eight-month pregnancy, U.S. speed
skaters should excel once again in 1980.
"I feel really good about the 1980 team," said Young. "It has just as
great, if not greater, potential than last year's team."

When Michigan's cross country
team travels to the Big Ten cham-
pionships this weekend, they'll carry
the added responsibility of trying to
win the school's 200th Big Ten title.
Since joining the conference in
1895, Michigan has won 199 Big Ten
championships scattered over twelve
intercollegiate sports.
The Wolverines have proven most
successful in football, winning 27
championships overall with 10 out-
right and 17 co-championships. That
figure ranks them tops in the confer-
Following close behind is the mens'
tennis team with 23 outright and
three co-championships. Coach Bri-
an Eisner's squads have boosted that

total significantly in recent years,
winning the past 10 Big Ten titles.
Michigan's early powerhouses in
outdoor track were main reasons in
claiming 25 championships. The
thinclads took the title from 1901
through 1904 and came back with
four more consecutive titles from
1937 through 1940. Overall the team
had its best success from 1930 to 1944,
winning ten of the 15 championships
Baseball follows with 24 champion-
ships which is tops in the Big Ten
along with Illinois. Michigan has 17
outright and seven co-champion-
ships, while the Illini have 19 outright
titles. From 1918-1929 eight of the

Three titles from 1964-66 are the

Both the hockey and cross country
teams have amassed five Big Ten
championships, with the icers taking
two -in'a row in 1968 and '69 and the
harriers grabbing the last three
races held.
Michigan's total of 199 champion-
ships breaks down to 164 outright and
35 co-championships. Illinois ranks
second with 168 titles, 144 outright

Badger star bails out
Wisconsin's Mike Meeker, currently tied for the lead in scoring in the
Western Collegiate Hockey Association, (WCHA) has quit school.
Meeker already scored six goals this season and was supposed to be
an integral part of the defending NCAA champions' offense.
The Badger forward said that he wants to play Junior A hockey for a
Peterborough (Ontario) team.
Meeker feels that this would give him a better opportunity to play in
the pros.
Last year Meeker scored 26 goals with 27 assists for a total of 53 points.
Carlton cops Cy Young award
PHILADELPHIA - Steve Carlton, the 23-game winner, earned his
second Cy Young Award as the National League's top pitcher yesterday.
The Philadelphia Phillies' left-hander easily outdistanced Tommy John
of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the voting by the Baseball Writers Association
of America.
Helping the Phillies win their second straight division title with a 23-10
record, the 32-year-old Carlton had a 2.64 earned run average, worked 283
innings with 17 complete games and had 198 strikeouts. -AP

The Red Wings scored the only goal of
the first period and added two more in
the middle stanza to take a 3-0 lead.
Detroit goalie Ron Low was outstan-
ding with several important saves to
keep Pittsburgh off the scoreboard.
Low stopped 25 of 26 shots and drew
standing ovations from the crowd and
several chants of "Low ... Low ... Low."
Tom Cassidy ruined the shutout with
only 4:49 remaining in the game. Cassi-
dy's shot hit Low's stick, dropped on to
his pads, and then trickled into the net.
The victory gives Detroit a 4-3-2
record, good for second place in the
Norris Division.
With the win the Wings have one four-
th of the number of victories they had
all last year.
