Women's appeared to be a devic that would permit the Austrian to live up to their earlier thrca to withdraw their skiers if on were banned from the Winte Games and at the same tim permit them to stay and com pete. Dr. Heinz Pmckner, presiden of the Austrian Olympic Com well miltee, and Dr. Karl Hein s Klee, president of the Austriai t Ski Federation, said they woulc e make a formal announcemen r at 9 a.m., Japan time, Wednes e day. They said Schranz alsc would be there. Schranz was ordered banishet from the Winter Games Monday by the International Olympic there? open from dawn unti nearly because he has soldi his name and picture to advertise ski equipment. The Austrians appealed the expulsion today but reported that the executive committee of the IOC had turned them down. The full IOC was still in session tonight but the Austrians held out no hope that it would reverse its own executive body. Klee said the decision to formally withdraw the 14 Alpine skiers and seven Nordic competitors was unanimous among officials. But he indicated there were some reservations among the athletes. "This is Klee said. "They all want to participate in the Olympic Games. But in the end, we all had the view that we could not stay on under these circumstances." Heini Messner, a top down-hiller and good friend of Schranz, told a reporter, "I am convinced that Karl will do ask us to stay but I must stress I have not discussed this with him." Klee again called the ban of Schranz "unjustified and made on no valid grounds." He said the trouble was all due "to the rigid mind of one Avery Bnmdage, president of the IOC. DESCRIBE EFFORTS Klee and Pruckner described in detail efforts they have made to get Brundage to change his mind about Schranz' professionalism. They said a Japanese representative in the IOC, Tsu-neyoshi Takeda, also had tried to persuade Brundage. "Under these said Klee, "there was just one road left for the road home." Pruckner said, "We hope that there will be a peaceful ending after that we return home on the same charter flight on which we came here." Their statements were taped, o be telecast in Austria at a atcr date. Pruckner was asked if he had any support from other ski federations during the fight to save Schranz. He indicated he had not. saying he had not counted on ,it and that he understood. While Austria waged its losing battle over Schranz, it got a iromise from the International ski federation (FIS) to withhold ie customary recognition of the Vinter Olympics as the Alpine Vorld Championship and to cbcdule separate champion-lips in Europe later this MAKES APPEAL Dr. Rudolf N e m e t s c h k e, Austrian member of the IOC, lad raised the appeal that cliranz' expulsion be re-chided.

SAPPORO (AP) The women's Olympic village is about as easy to invade and as inviting, as a secret government installation. In the true sanse, it's not a village at all but a compound behind barbed wire, its entrance blocked by gray-clad Japanese guards. From a tiny yellow booth that protects them from the elements, they protect some 300 female athletes from intruders. Their only weapon, which they wield effectively, is polite firmness. While an open-door policy exists in the men's village, even a competitor's mother and women reporters with the proper credentials are barred from the women's quarters unless escorted by a resident athlete. And there is still endless waiting and checking and rechecking by the ever-smiling, goes ing and going between practice sessions and sightseeing trips.

James Summerville, a 290-pounder from Miami, Fla., supplied tha only knockdown of the fight. Ali's other opponent was Jeff Mcrrilt of New York City, who measures six feet, five inches and weighs 210 pounds. The exhibition match was the second of three in a western Canada tour.
