"They're sick. Their team morale isn't lira good.

The 16-y e a r -o 1 d Vancouver swimmer conquered Susie At- of Long Beach, Calif., to win gold medals in the 200- and 400-meti-e individual medleys and also swam the third leg the winning a team gold in tho 400 medley relay. In her individual 400 medley victory Sunday night, Miss Cliff knocked off Miss Atwood and Alice Jones, the American world-record holder in the 100 butterfly. "Susie was very sick after the 400 Miss Cliff said. 'And Alice Jones was so sick she hardly managed fourth." CAME EARLY Canada's girl swimmers came !o Columbia two weeks before the competition began.

"I wish we could have the rookie quarterback said after the Patriots were defeated J7-10 by Minnesota Vikings in one of two exhibition games Sunday. Plunkett entered the game with only 11 minutes left to play and completed two of three passes but couldn't spark the New England offence that was tlirottled by the marauding Vi- king front four.
