CBS on
op after
4 years
NEW YORK (AP) - CBS claims
first place in the prime-time
television ratings for the first timein
nearly four years. But the network's
programming chief says he expects
the Winter Olympics next month to
put ABC back on top for the rest of
the season.
"I have to give the odds to ABC,"
said Robert Daly, president of CBS's
entertainment division, "because I
feel the Winter Olympics they'll
carry in February will tip the balan-
ce in their favor.
"ABC HAS NOT been doing well
lately," Daly said in a telephone
conversation from his office in Los
Angeles, "and the Olympics will
give them an opportunity to break
our momentum, and to promote
their programs for the rest of the
season.
"But it will be close," Daly said,
'and we've got to be pleased with
the ;building "blocks we've put in
place for next season."
CBS's claim to first place is not
undisputed. ABC, which began its
prime-time season a week ahead of
the others, maintains it is still No. 1.
Adding to the confusion was a mix-
up in the ratings several weeks ago
in which a low-rated show was in-
correctly*included in the prime-time
averages.
CBS AND NBC agree that first-
place belongs to CBS.
ABC wrestled prime-time
dominance away from CBS in April
1976, and overwhelmed the com-
petition with half-hour sitcoms like
"Happy Days," "Laverne and
Shirley," "Three's Company," and,
last season, "Mork and Mindy."
ABC was a runaway winner in the
ratings race a year ago, and ap-
peared headed for another easy
triumph this fall:

Olympics.
TORCH-BEARERS BEGIN TREK:
Soviets appeal for participation

MOSCOW (UPI)-The Soviet
Olympic Committee, in its first direct
reply to the U.S. call for a boycott of the
summer Moscow Games, yesterday
appealed to sportsmen throughout the
world to reject America's "hostile
campaign."
The committee did not mention the
Soviet invasion of Afghanistan or other
reasons such as domestic repression
that have been advanced by proponents
of a boycott. The statement instead
condemned the "policy of blackmail
and hegemonisjn" that it said was
behind the boycott.
"THE jJ.S.S.R. Olympic Committee,
ture to the ideals of the Olympic
movement, condemns the attempts at
using sport as a means of political
pressure and calls upon the Inter-
national Olympic Committee, the
national Olympic, committess of all

and I say that with a heavy heart. I
don't want war. But this isn't peace,"
Kahane said.
'Kahane further condemned Israel
Prime Minister Menachem Begin,
"Begin has givenxup all our (Israel's)
oil. What country today gives up its
oil?"
Further on the subject of oil, Kahane
indicated that he felt the United States
might end its active support of Israel if
it was in the best interests of the U.S.
"There is a bi-partisan foreign policy in
this country today and it's called oil "

countries, sports federations and
unions, all people of good will to give a
resolute rebuff to the sponsors of the
present hostile campaign."
The statement, carried by the Tass
news agency and aired repeatedly by
Radio Moscow, said that those who
want to pass up the 1980 Olympics "are
disregarding the fact that a boycott
may split the very Olympic
movement."
MEANWHILE, THE Olympic torch
for the Lake Placid winter games
arrived in Yorktown, Pa., yesterday
form Greece. Torch bearer Suzy Mink
began the 1,000-mile relay to the site of
the winter games with a deep breath
and a pledge, to "take the snow with
us."
The Olympic flame, which was
ignited by the sun's rays Wednesday at
Mount Olympia in Greece, was flown to

the United States aboard a presidential
jet.
The 52 relay runners will reach Lake
Placid after winding through
Washington, D.C., Baltimore,
Wilmington, Del., Philadelphia, New
York and Albany.
The declaration yesterdayabyrthe
U.S.S.R. Olympic Committee-apparen-
tly was intended as a direct Soviet
reply to the unanimous vote by the U.S.
Olympic Committee's executive board
last week in support of President Car-
ter's boycott call.
The Soyist committee noted op-
position to an Olympic boycott already
has been recorded by the International
Olympic Committee and "an over-
whelming majority of countries and in-
ternational sports federations, noted
figures in sport, prominent coaches and
outstanding athletes."
