IOC REJECTS FINAL OFFER:
No LA Olympics
By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles ap-
parently lost its long fight to host the
1984 Olympic Games without risk
yesterday when the International
Olympic Committee rejected the city's
final take-it-or-leave-it offer.
"That proposal having been declined
by the IOC," Mayor Tom Bradley wrote
to the City Council, "I am recommen-
ding that the Council withdraw the
city's bid for the 1984 Olympic Games."
ASKED WHETHER the council
would approve Bradley's recommen-
dation, Council President Bob Ferraro
said, "I'm sure it's certain. I don't think
there's any possibility the mayor's
recommendation will not be accepted."
Thus ended the city's months-long
struggle in which the city's politicians
tried vainly to satisfy the public
demand for government thrift while
satisfying the demands of the men who
run the Olympics, the nine-member

City leaders who favored bringing the
Olympics to Los Angeles felt they had
found their solution in the proposal that
a private Olympics committee accept
responsibility for the Games, rather
than the city itself. But the IOC stuck to
its guns on Rule 4, which states that the
host city must bear ,financial liability
for the Olympics.
IN A LETTER to Mayor Bradley,
IOC President Lord Killanin said that
allowing Los Angeles to deviate from
the rules would prompt future host
cities to make similar demands.
"The IOC must protect itself for the
future and not compromise itself with
other cities," Killanin said in the letter
from Lausanne, Switzerland.
KILLANIN SAID the IOC wanted Los
Angeles to host the Games and respec-
ted the city's wish to be free of financial
risk. "We are the first to strive for
minimal operational costs," he said.
But because Los Angeles refused to
budge from its demand that the private
group accept financial responsibility,
Killanin said, "I must therefore con-
firm that the proposals are not accep-
Gopher grid program
By TheAsociated Press
MINNEAPOLIS-University of Minnesota officials have ordered an
investigation into reports that football coach Cal Stoll made loans to players
and allowed payment of a player's personal phone bill.
The university newspaper, the Minnesota Daily, reported in a copyright
story yesterday that Wendell Avery, a junior and starting quarterback,
received undisclosed amounts of money from Stoll both before the start of
the 1977 season and during the season.
An unnamed source close to Stoll and Avery said Stoll called Avery into
his office the week before the Gophers faced Wisconsin in 1977 and told him
he would be absolved of his debts to Stoll if Minnesota won the game, the ar-
Stoll denied the charges made in the article.
"There's no truth to anything that's in it, to my knowledge," he said, ad-
ding that the article "is nothing but innuendos and hearsay.
"I didn't even know if Wendell was going to start in the Wisconsin
game," he said.
The article also said one unidentified player claimed Stoll paid $900 of
his $1,000 phone bill four years ago. Stoll called that charge "completely
false, an out and out lie."
"We have every reason for confidence in Coach Stoll," said University
Vice President Robert Stein. "But because of the questions these allegations
raise about the integrity of our football program, we are taking this matter
"I am requesting Athletic Director Paul Giel to undertake an immediate
investigation of these allegations and to report back to me as quickly as
possible," Stein said.
He said results of the investigation will be made public.
The university basketball program was put on probation by the National
Collegiate Athletic Association in 1976 for more than 100 rules violations
committed between 1971 and 1974 in the program headed by Bill Musselman.
Further violations were found in 1976, and the NCAA extended the probation
to all university athletic programs.
LOS ANGELES SECOND BASEMAN Davey Lopes missed this tag on the Cubs' Ivan DeJesus, but the Dodgers' stretch for
the National League West lead gets closer as the season wears on. Although DeJesus stole the base, Los Angeles kept the
game, 4-3, to pull within three games of San Francisco.
