Pastrana Borrero will formally
declare the Games open and will
call upon all countries to forget
politics and compete in a spirit
of brotherhood.
The call, as usual, will go un-
heeded. Fires of nationalism
turn hotly. The big delegation
from Cuba has thrown down a
challenge to the heavily favored
Americans who gobbled up 405
medals-262 golds-in the last
games at Winnipeg in 1967.
Francis, coach of Kansas
State at Hays, Kans., had his
potent track-and field team out
of full force yesterday for4the
first time at the main stadium,
working on a Tartan track in
the mid day sun,
"If anybody's going to- break
any world records here, we've
got the boys to do it," he said.
"This is a terrific team. Un-
fortunately, we're hurting in the
sprints, but we'll be hard to beat
everywhere else."
The six-day track and field
competition s t a r t s tomorrow

favored.
In addition to Marty Liquori
of Villanova, one of the world's
premier milers, the U.S. squad
includes Pat Matzdrof of Wis-
consin, whose 7 feet, 6% inch
jump in the U.S.-Russia dual
meet bettered the world mark;
Rod Milburn of Opelousas, La.,
who cut two-tenths of a second
off the world mark in the 110-

Brundage blasts U.S.
The United States is making
the Pan American Games a door
mat instead of a springboard to
the Olympics, according to
Avery Brundage, president of
the International Olympic Com-
mittee.
Brundage, the 63 - year - old
out-spoken watchdog of world
amateur sports, told the Pan
American Organization, yester-
day that "It doesn't look good
for the U.S. to be collaring three
quarters of the Pan Am medals."
"When I presided as first
PASO president at the 1939 or-
ganizing of these Western Hem-
isphere games, I predicted the
United States would overpower
all competition if it entered its
strongest teams," said Brundage,
whose IOC presidency presum-
ably will end with the 1972
Olympics at Munich.
The U.S. has amassed 482
gold medals, compared with next
best of 118 by Argentina in the
past five Pan Am Games.
"Purely as a personal observ-
er," said Brundage, "I don't
think this looks good for sports,
the Pan Am Games or the U.S.,
to have such an overwhelming
advantage."
