From AP and UPI
Vice President Walter Mondale
arrived in Belgrade yesterday to
represent the United States at the
funeral of JosipBrozTito..Mondale said
U.S; support for the independence and
uhity of this diverse Balkan nation "has
not changed with the passing of a great
leader,"
Mondale heads a 24-member U.S.
delegation and will join kings, princes,
presidents and prime ministers for
today's funeral of the Croatian peasan-
ts' son who founded the non-aligned
movement and preserved Yugoslav in-
dependence in the dangerous Cold War
years.
Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev -
whose, predecessor, Josef Stalin, ex-
pelled - President Tito from the
Moscow's communist fold in 1948 - will
be the principal world figure among the
mourners.
In an editorial yesterday, the Times
of London said President Carter's
decision not to attend had "conveyed
the message that Yugoslavia is more

important to the Russians than to him."
The London Daily Mail wrote, "Once
again, the White House has blundered."
In Washington, a White House official
who declined to be identified said
criticism of Carter's decision was
"carping." He said the president
decided not to go to the funeral because
he believed a "foreign trip under these
circumstances would not be ap-
propriate," referring to the holding of
53 American hostages in Iran and the
current presidential campaign.
Meanwhile, another U.S. official,
amplifying the White House remarks,
said it was considered inappropriate for
Carter to be "showboating in Belgrade
while Itome burns," a reference to the
U.S. hostages held in Iran.
This official, who declined to be iden-
tified, said there was a fear that Car-
ter's attendance may have been inter-
preted as political maneuvering and so
it was decided to keep the delegation
low key.
Mondale said: "I am here today to

SOVIET LEADER LEONID BREZHNEV arrived yesterday in Belgrade to
attend the funeral of Yugoslav President Josip Tito. Brezhnev, it was
learned yesterday, has agreed to do away with the national anthems and
flag ceremonies during the Moscow Olympics in an effort to prevent a
widespread boycott.
Brezhnev, IOC move to
avert widespread boycott

a

MOSCOW (UPI) - Lord Killanin,
president of the International Olympic
Committee, (IOC), won agreement
from Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev
yesterday to eliminate national an-
thems and flags from the Moscow
Olympics in an attempt to prevent a
widespread boycott, Soviet sources
said.
Killanin and Monique Berlioux,
director of the IOC, slipped into
Moscow unannounced and met
Brezhnev in the Kremlin to discuss
ways of averting a boycott that could
turn the July games into a farce.
THE 73-YEAR-OLD Soviet leader
received Killanin just hours before

flying to Belgrade for the funeral of
Yugoslav President Josip Tito.
A statement issued at the IOC's
Swiss headquarters in Lausanne, Swit-
zerland, said "a frank discussion" took
place.
The changes in Olympic ceremonies
were. initially agreed by Soviet
organizers April 21-23 in Lausanne.
But Soviet sources said Brezhnev's
personal agreement and the fact he met
Killanin emphasized the seriousness
with which the Soviet Union viewed the
boycott threat.
Already the move has met French ob-
jections, meaning a team from France
probably will go to Moscow.
