been sitting at the 16th re vival of the Olympic Games I can see this inscription in bold faced type on the giant score board across the greenturfed field The Olympic Movement tends to bring together in a radiant union all the qualities which guide mankind to The writer of those words was Baron Pierre de Coubertin the Frenchman credited with bring ing the games back to life after more than years of dormancy Before my arrival here in Mel bourne last week I would have taken a dim view of that senti ment But after sitting in on the Olympics for the first time Im an unqualified convert The goal set by the French baron has been fully achieved in my opinion Common Bond For a long time I have re garded the arts music art literature sculpturing etc as a common bond among hu man beings Now Im ready to add sports competition to that category Barriers based on col or creed language and economic status are nonexistent at this carnival of athletics Thats true not only down on the redsurfaced trgck and the green infield before me in this beautiful setting for the 1956 Olympics but up here in the stands where fans gather for some six hours daily to watch the Olympics competition Heres how it operated in my own case on my very first day here The meter race was being run Lap after lap an Eng lish runner named Pirie dogged a Russian by the name of Vladi mir Kouts Scarcely three paces separated them at the head of the pack for the first four miles of the six mile race Then the Russian a naval of ficer from the Ukraine executed a maneuver to get his British ad versary off his back He stopped almost dead still and forced Pirie to take the lead Then he stepped up his own pace to go into the lead Spent Himself And that was the last of the Englishman Whether the break ing of the pace was responsible or whether he had just spent him self letting his Russian competi tor run his race for him I wouldnt know All I know is that he faded from the competition Russian ran even LONDON UP Foreign Secre tary Selwyn Lloyd said Monday Britain and France have decided they can now withdraw their forces froni Egypt without de Lloyd told a tense session of the House of Commons the two

two mile west of Mason City Banken wai still conscious when the ambu lance arrived The gun was a 12 guage while the faster At the start of the race my at titude was one of resentment to ward the Ukrainian I was neu tral in that I didnt care a hoot who beat him just so he was beaten But when he demon strated his superiority over the whole field my attitude toward him changed I began thinking of him not as a Russian but as a fellow human being with a finesse and physical stamina seldom found in the human animal And when he sprinted down the final stretch to a new Olympic record I was on my feet along with others in the stands cheering Vladimir Kouts with all the voice I had I spoke of the Olympics as a revival proposition They are that The name comes from Olympia in ancient Greece where the games started 776 years be fore the birth of Christ They were held every four years al most without interruption until terminated in 394 by Theo dosius Roman Emperor of the east Original Perm In
