AMSTERDAM om) -- Denver
was picked as site of the 1976
Winter Olympic Games yesterday
shortly after the International
Olympic Committee, in a surprise
move, gave the Summer Games to
Montreal over the bids of favored
Moscow and Los Angeles.
Thus both the Games for 1976
go to North America. Denver was
chosen over Canada's Vancouver,
B.C.; Sion, Switzerland, and Tam-
pere, Finland.
Montreal won out on the second
ballot in a vote by International
Olympic Committee members.
It's the first time any of the
Games, Winter or Summer, has
gone to a Canadian city. This is
in keeping with the International
Olympic Committee policy of
spreading the Games around to
new areas.
The result came as a shock,
especially to the Russians whose
official news agency, Tass, put

out a premature bulletin some two
hours before the final decision
that Moscow had been awarded+
the Games.
The announcement was with-
drawn shortly afterward without
explanation.
Moscow had been favored be-
cause of its renowned athletic
facilities plus the fact that the
Games never have been held in an
Iron Curtain country.
In Moscow, the Soviet Union
attacked the choice of Montreal
for the 1976 Summer Olympics as
"contrary to logic and common
sense."
The official Soviet News Agency
Tass declared that the failure of
Moscow to get the Olympics was
a "Blow to the Olympic movement
and its ideals."
Moscow, Tass said, "had clear-
cut and unquestionable arguments
in its favor both from the point
of view of sport, economy and
politics."
The agency added: The impres-
sion is that during the vote some'
members of the OIC proceeded
not from principles of expanding'
and consolidating the Olympic
movement but from their personal
political likes and dislikes.
Los Angeles was eliminated on
the first ballot which showed 28
for Moscow, 24 for Montreal and
17 for Los Angeles. A majority of

,ames
got 41 votes and Moscow 28, One
vote was void.
In the voting for the Winter
Olympics, Denver won on the final
ballot with 39 votes to 30 for Sion,
Switzerland. Vancouver and Tem-
pere were eliminated in earlier
ballots.
Vancouver which had been the
favorite city to take the Winter
Games, lost out because Montreal
had won the nomination for the
Summer Games.
William M. T. McNichols, Mayor
of Denver, said Denver will stage
the games "in the real meaning
of the Olympic movement."
He concluded by thanking "all
who placed their faith in Denver."
Echoing the sentiments of the
Dutch minister for cultural af-
fairs, Mrs. Marga Klompe, urging
a streamlining of the Olympic
program, Drapeau said:
"I want to take over an expres-
sion by the Dutch minister of cul-
tural affairs that the Ganes
should not become an astronomic
enterprise."

NEW YORK - Art Shamsky hit
a two-run homer and Dave Mar-
shall ripped three doubles as the
New York Mets routed the Mon-
treal Expos 8-4 yesterday.-
Shamsky's third homer of the
season in the fifth inning gave
the Mets a 4-2 edge and Marshall
capped a three-run New York
sixth with his third double, driv-
ing in two runs.
Ray Sadecki, who went the first
six innings for the Mets, picked
up his first victory in a New York
uniform. The lefthander obtained
from San Francisco during the
winter, allowed six hits, struck out
three and walked three.

Houston Ridge, 25, accused team officials and both the American{
and National football leagues of malpractice and conspiracy.
The suit claimed amphetamines, barbiturates and other drugs
were given Ridge "not for the purpose of treatment and care but for
the purpose of stimulating his mind and body so that he would per-
form more violently as a professional football player."
