113rundage threatens tough sanctions impresses in rain

MUNICH (J)-Kenya, the home of such
world class runners as Kipchoge Keino,
joined an Olympic boycott movement yes-
terday in protest against Rhodesia's par-
ticipation in the Olympic Games.
Meanwhile, Avery Brundage, days short
of retirement after 20 years as president
of International Olympic Committee,
threatened tough sanctions against teams
and national Olympic committees that
boycott the Munich Games in protest
against participation by athletes from
white-ruled Rhodesia.
"IF TEAMS ARE withdrawn for politi-
cal reasons, it is obvious that these NOCS
have lost their independence. It will
therefore, be necessary to withdraw rec-
ognition and participation in future Olym-
pic Games will- be endangered," he said
in a statement.
Expanding on this later at an impromptu
news conference, Brundage said, "we
adopted the Africans suggestion in Lux-
embourg last year concerning the Rho-
desian participation. Now the political

people have intervened and demand their
sports people to pull out. This is one of
the most serious issues yet. Naturally,
people who furnish the honey want to
take charge. But we can and will resist
this with the help of local people. We've
done it before successfully."
Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta said
in a statement issued in Nakura, "that
Kenyan athletes already in Munich would
be ordered home because "my government
does not follow the policy of appease-
Ethiopia, Tanzania, Sierra Leone and
Zambia in the boycott movement in re-
sponse to a call from the Organization of
African Unity to protest . alleged racial
discrimination by the breakway British
colony of Rhodesia.
In talking to newsmen, Brundage, 84,
was, in a relaxed and jovial mood as
though he looked forward to one last
battle before yielding the reins of office.

MUNICH (P)-Chuck Smith, one of the
United States' bright Olympic hopes, ran
the 200 meters in 21.1 seconds in a violent -
thunderstorm in a tuneup for the Olympic
Games yesterday.
Smith of Los Angeles won his race in
heavy rain, splashing through pools of
water at Munich's Dante Stadium on the
second day of the Hanns Braun Sports
The United States 400-meters relay team
also got the worst of the weather but
scored the most convincing victory of the
day. The Americans clocked 38.95 seconds
and opened up a 30-meter gap in front
of the second place Ivory Coast team.
Another American winner was Rod
Milburn, of Opelousas, Ia., who took the
100 meter hurdles in 23.78 seconds. Mil-
burn ran on a dry track before the storm
The rain was so heavy that competition
was held up for 20 minutes while a new
style mobile sponge was driven around
the track to soak up the water.
