Outsider Pal Miles clocked another Games record1 in whi- ning the men's metres lor the U.S., Ron Jacks of Vancouver sixth. Miles swam I the gruelling race in 1G minutes standing Ihere beside a res- taurant chatting with a Cuban fencer. From all reports, the 28- year-old Toronto chemist and member of Canada's fencing team at the Pan-American Games was minding his own business. It was past midnight Tues- day night and Wong was below the flag stand which contains the flags of the coun- tries competing in the Games. An unidentified Canadian athlete came up and asked which was the Cuban flag. Wong said he didn't know but his friend promptly pointed to (us national symbol. The unidentified Canadian went after tile flag in what most observers report was an attempt to collect a souvenir. FIGHT STARTS Alter that the repoits be- come a little blurry but there was a fight and prelly soon Wong, who apparently was just standing there trying to mind his own business, was the business of many people. Top Canadian, Cuban and United States officials at Ihe Games were awakened in an effort lo gel Wong was taken hostage by the Cu- bans but released unhurt shortly after. Some of the aftermalh was this: U.S. alhlele had to walk around with dark glasses be- cause he wras cut above and below the right eye. U.S. officials de- manded an apology from Cuba, saying their athlete, James P. Culhane, a 28-year- old gymnast, had been at- tacked by a group of Cubans while also trying to lake a flag as a souvenir. under the Games standard.

The team is third in the medal standing and can't catch second-place Cuba which has 26 gold. The Cubans have shown tremendous improvement since the Winnipeg competition when they finished fifth with eight gold. But tlie 17 Canadian gold medals bettered by five the total gold won in Winnipeg and Ihe team "has a chance of equal- ling or passing the all-time Ca- nadian high in international gold won in the first British Empire Games at Hamilton, Ont., in 1930. Canada came close to doing just that in the Commonwealth Games a1 Edinburgh last year when the squad won 18 gold. Just as it got pretty tiresome to tear the Star Spangled Ban- ner played 120 times in Winni- peg, the South Americans have heard it here 96 times for U.S. gold medals. But the Americans are nol going lo come close to their 120-gold total of 1967. It was the final-day jumping event in Winnipeg that clinched second-place for His Canadian team when Jim Day of King City, Ont., took the individual gold. That victory put Canada ahead of Brazil 12 golds to 11. SHOWING IMPORTANT Here, tiie equestrian team's showing in the last three days of the Games looms large in the over-all Canadian picture.

Clifford Buck, president of the U.S'. Olympic Committee, said it all started as a prank. He said some athletes decided to grab some flags as souve- nirs. "We have a statement from said Buck. "He ac- knowledged that he took one of the flags, although it is against team rules." dian equestrians have been posted first in riding order for every event so far. "But we might as well make up our minds we're going lo ride first said Tom Gayford of Gorrr.ley, Ont., the 43-year-old stockbroker-horse- man and veteran internation- alist. "The way we've been picking tbem, we're bound to draw first again for the Grand Prix jump- ing." No rider likes to go first.
