Canadian citizens support Taiwan

On-the-street poll
reveals criticism
By The Associated Press
MONTREAL-If Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau had put the
issue to a vote of his people, Taiwan would be marching behind
its colors in next Saturday's opening parade and Canada would
keep its political nose out of the Olympic Games.
A broad-based sampling of opinion along Rue St. Catherine
and in teeming Phillips Square yesterday showed people pre-
dominantly in favor of letting the Republic of China compete in
the two-week international festival.
By a margin of 10-1, persons interviewed by the Associated
Press said the government had no right to deprive the little
island of 16 million a chance to take part, as it has for years,
in the Olympics and sharply criticized political interference in
sports.
Among the comments:
"Stupid mistake."
"As bad as Adolph Hitler."
"Canada is influenced by the People's Republic of China
(mainland China), with 800 million people because of its wheat
deals."
"It will just give Russia idess for 1980."
Jack de Niverville, a candy company representative, said
the Canadian government was playing footsie with Communist
China because of wheat deals and termed it "a stupid mistake."
"China needs our wheat more than we need their friend-
ship," he said. "We should not compromise our principles of
fair play."
In a last-minute action that rocked the Olympic hierarchy,
the Canadian government decided that Taiwan, a member of
the IOC for years, could not compete in the Games unless it
discarded its designation as "Republic of China," its national
colors and anthem.
The IOC, sharply critical of Canada's stance, capitulated to
the host country and announced there would be no boycott of
the Games.
Kent Oscewski, 16, and his brother, Craig, 15, relaxing on the
grass of Christ Church Cathedral, agreed that Taiwan should be
allowed to take part but said the People's Republic of China also
should be admitted.
"The names they use should make no difference," Kent said.
"Everybody should be in the Olympics."
Swapan Chaudhuri, an Indian college student majoring In
psychology, argued for an "open door" policy in the Olympics
and warned, "If Canada is allowed to interfere it sets a
precedent for the Soviet Union to follow on a bigger scale In
1980."
An assistant manager of a mid-town bank, Yves Gagner, 27,
argued that Canada wasn't minding its own business but cri-
ticized the IOC for procrastination. "They knew this was coming
a year ago," he said.

Bills hoping to trade O.J.

By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES-O. J. Simp-
son has said he intends to play
football just one more year, but
the Buffalo Bills running back
indicated yesterday that some
factors-like being traded to the
Los Angeles Rams and playing
on a championship team-could
change his decision.
He emphasized, however,
in the wake of renewed in-
terest by Buffalo to trade
him, that he currently plans
to end his football career
after this season.
"Sure, it could make a dif-
ference if I were playing in
Los Angeles with a champion-
ship team. But I said five years
ago that I was just going to
play five more years. That's
still my plan, but a lot of things
could change that."
Bills owner Ralph Wilson Jr.
said Tuesday that they would
ask Simpson if he will allow
them to try to negotiate a trade
for him with teams in New
York, Washington, Miami or
other "so-called glamor" Na-

tional Football League cities.
But Simpson said he had no
interest in going to a new
team strictly because it was
in a "glamor" city, instead
saying he wants to play for
the Rams.
"I want to play in Los An-
geles so I can be close to my
family," Simpson said. "Being
traded to a glamorous city has
nothing to do with it. I wouldn't
ask to be traded if I didn't
want to play on the West
Coast."
