Canada gives in--almost

By The Associated Press
MONTREAL - The Interna-
tional Olympic Committee said
yesterday Canada had yielded
in permitting Taiwan to use its
flag and anthem in the Mon-
treal Games. The IOC will vote
today on whether to change the
name of the country from Re-
public of China to Taiwan for
the troubled 1976 games.
Killanin said he had extract-
ed from Canadian Prime Min-
ister Pierre Trudeau agree-
ment to yield on two points

demanded by the Taiwanese-
that of carrying the national
flag and playing the national
anthem in case of a medal-
but that the matter of the
name remained a point of
He said a vote of two-thirds
of the 77-member body would
be necessary to change the
rules for these particular games

10C OK's RFE
MONTREAL - Radio Free Europe was granted accreditation
for the Montreal Olympic Games but will have to submit tran-
scripts of its broadcasts to prove they are not political.
The International Olympic Committee which has been under
pressure from the Soviet Union to ban RFE, announced the deci-
Monique Berlioux, Director of the IOC, said "Transcripts
of all RFE broadcasts will have to be shown to the IOC each
day during the Games. If politics intrudes into the reporting of
the Olympics, the accreditations will be withdrawn."
RFE, based in Munich, Germany, and formerly financed by
the CIA, broadcasts to East European countries. It was at the
center of a bitter row at the Winter Olympics in Innsbruck,
Austria, last February. The RFE staff had its accreditations taken
away after protests from the Russians on grounds it had not ap-
plied through proper channels.
Royal treatment
KANSAS CITY - Right-hander Steve Busby, expected to be a
mainstay of the Kansas City Royals pitching staff this season, will
undergo surgery next Monday for a sore shoulder and may be
sidelined for the remainder of the year.
Joe Burke, Royals general manager, said, "It is very un-
likely he'll be able to come back this year."
One of the top young pitchers in the league before suffering
arm trouble late last season, Busby has a 3-3 record this season
with a 4.40 earned run average. He had an 18-12 record last sea-
son, and was 22-14 in 1974.
Gale gets new job
CARBONDALE, Il. - Gale Sayers, former Chicago Bears
star running back, was named athletic director at Southern Illinois
University-Carbondale today.
The 33-year-old Sayers will assume the position at the
university effective Aug. 1.
Sayers has been serving for the past 3% years in the athletic
department of the University of Kansas, where he enjoyed a
brilliant collegiate career as a running back in the 1960s.
In a poll of sports writers, he was named the greatest running
back in the first 50 years of professional football.
Ali and the Avssies
MELBOURNE, Australia - World heavyweight boxing cham-
pion Muhammad Ali will fight in Melbourne early next year, pro-
vided he wins his title defense against Ken Norton in September.
Ali has signed with an Australian syndicate to fight at the Mel-
bourne cricket ground in January or February.
His opponent will be Jimmy Young, who came close to beat-
ing Ali in Washington in April.
Sydney advertising executive Wayne Garland said a world
record crowd of 150,000 would watch at the cricket grounds,
at prices of $5410 a seat and another 78 million would view
the fight on television.
Garland would not say how much the fight would cost or what
prize money is being offered.

start on Saturday without threat
of a withdrawal.
Trudeau had announced ear-
lier in the day that the entire
Taiwanese team could compete,
using their flag and anthem but
Canada could not agree to al-
lowing the little island of 16
million to give the appearance
of representing all of China.
Philip O. Krumnm; president
of the U.S. Olympic Commit-
tee, took the rostrum shortly
after Killanin spoke and said
the American athletes defi-
nitely would compete in the
"Prime Minister Trudeau has
softened his position some and
while we do not have 100 per
cent agreement on principle, he
has shown us enough good will
to warrant our remaining in the
Games," the U.S. executive
