By The Associated Press
The United States Track and
Field team picked up three more
medals yesterday-one silver
and two bronze - and several
others advanced toward finals
as the track and field events
reached the halfway point in the
Olympics at Montreal. The
athletes will have today off and
resume competition tomorrow.
So far, five world records

have been smashed, 10 Olympic
records broken and one Games'
mark equalled.

IOC coninues war on drugs;

By The Associated Press
MONTREAL - The Interna-
tional Olympic C o m m i t t e e
struck a second athlete out of
the Games on a doping charge
today but stayed mysteriously
silent about the reasons.
Dragomir Ciorosian of Ro-
mania was disqualified from
the weightlifting on a recom-
mendation by the IOC's Medical
Commission. A terse announce-
ment by the IOC did not say
what drug Ciorosian was found
guilty of taking..
"We are deliberately not giv-
ing that information, for a par-
ticular reason," an IOC spokes-
man said.
In previous cases of dis-
qualification the IOC has al-
