Canada tvim opening hoop game Soviets grab early lead in Student World Games MOSCOW CAP) Track and field competition at the World University Games swung into high gear today and American athletes will be bidding for some gold medals that so far have been swept up by the So- viet Union, In Thursday's opening events, the Soviets picked up four golds and one bronze to a single sil- ver medal for the United by Kathy Schmidt of Long Beach, Calif., in the javelin throw. Soviet winners were women's javelin thrower Svetlana Koro- leva, shot-putter Valery Voikin, fencer Basil Stankovich and the women's gymnastics team, lead by tiny Olga Korbut. Yugoslavia's Daniel Korica won the run and was Thursday's only other gold medal winner. The American men's basket- ball team overwhelmed Great Britain 123-74 in an opening round-robin game, but still was a long way from a medal with strong Soviet Union and Cuban teams standing in the way. Dave Roberts of Rice Univer- sity and Terry Porter of Kansas University both qualified for the pole vault final, and Steve Rid dich of Norfolk State and Thomas Whatley of Alabama University both qualified for the 100-metre dash final. Kathy Lawson of Massachu- setts University and Mattline Render of Temple both quali- fied in the women's 100, but will have to face Russia's Nadezhda Besfamilnaya and Finland's Lisa Pursiainen.

OUINELLA: SHOOTERS SCOREBOARD by PLAINSMAN SPORTS It jeems unusual and unfortunate fhat the Winter Games scheduled for Lethbndge do not include shooting as event. Alberta shooters brought home five of the province's medals from the Canadian Summer Games New Westminster In Olympic compe- tition more medals have been won by this province's shooters than all other athletic groups This is a province of outdoors people and shooters, most particularly here in the South How well we could have utilized the facilities of an indoor range Granted the outdoor facilities at the Trap Club and Fish and Game range are excellent But It Is during the long winters when the indoor range would have provid- ed the facility for teaching our young people safe gun handling and marks- manship through the several programs by the Shooting Sports Fed- eration, American Rifle Association, and others Granted shooting has not been. In the past, an attractive spectator sport (it is however an excellent participant sport where every age and both sexes can compete) Bev Penney end Bob Cheyne vh-> Olympic medal winners, created crowds whenever they came up to fhoot. Nor were the interested spec- tators disappointed as B.C.
