Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta More than people on hund Cheery opening for Olympics Thunday, February I, 1972 THE LETHBRIDC8 HERALD SAPPORO, Japan (CP) There Ls a certain am'jiuit of rigidity in Ihe format for launching an Olympics, hut the Japanese organizers took the slarchiness out mill their con- centration on youlh, and the end product was a bright and theory opening cercrr.ony today.

It was 17 degrees and windy as the athletes from 35 coun- tries passed before Emperor Hi- rohito and his empress in the colorful parade.

The chief challenge to the big three is likely to come from the Merry Mexican, the Gilroy Cow- boy and Mysterious Mr. X. Super-Mex Lee Trevino, who captivated the golfing world with his sweep of the American, Canadian and British opens last year, has had putting problems I his season but Gilroy Cowboy George Archer and Mr. X, Miller Barber, are the hottest items on the tour. JUST OVER FLU Archer, a one time ranch hand at GUroy, Calif., in Iliree starts this season lias won oner, finished sixth and lost to Barber in a playoff. He missed last week's event because of a bout with the flu. Barber, dubbed Mr. X be- cause of his loner tendencies, won the Tucson Open and fin- ished fifth last week. The 42-year-old Palmer ap- peared rested as he prepared to make his second start of the season after a three-week break. Nicklaus, a last-minute en- trant, won the Bing Crosby three weeks ago but is coming off one of his poorest showings in a year in last' week's San Diego Open. The fiolden Bear, however, rarely plays two bad ones in a row. The quiet Oasper, winner of more than 40 tour titles, has had an extended struggle wilh colds and flu and has not fared well this season. "I think I've aboul got il licked Casper said.

Accompanied by his dimin- utive, knowledgeable trainer, Angelo Dundee, Ali entertain- ed the crowd with the "Ali shuffle" and his continuing nat- tering at various fans. "I can't show j'ou all my moves, you didn't pay enough for your Ali told the fans. The exhibition was a well re- hearsed display of All's tal- ents. Despite the heaviness of his face and the fact that his stom- ach doesn't have the tightness it should have, Ali didn't break a sweat until the filth round. It was quite a show. Resplen- dent in green gloves and while shoes and trunks, Ali was far, far better than any of the six fighters who labored through three preliminary events. Earl M c L e a y took five rounds to dispose of incjpt Hobo Wiler. Wiler, whose style re- sembles an unco ordinated water buffalo, was never in the fight. Ben Yee won the first bout stopping Clarence Wolf Leg in the first while Gary Ferrari won an eight round decision over Al Fosler in another con- tosl. Ali in the slampede city Tuesday and was the toast of the town throughout his two day stay. AM THE BOSS The effervescent former heavyweight king unhesitating- ly told everyone within car- shol, "I an7 the boss, I am the resin-rector of the fight game. I'm here to meet the people. I am the boss." He bubbled and babbled for close lo an hour at a press conference, giving the type of entertainment that only top dollar can buy. "Frazier is a flop as a Ali fold his audience. "It's impossible for him (o ffhup me. Impossible! Why if he even dreamed it, he'd have to wake up and apologize." As (or Canada's George Chu- valo Ali wanls to meet him again and become the first man to knock him down. "I must knock him down. Every- body else has been down so lie must go down loo. I can't re- tire letting a man be greater Uian ir.e at anything." Ali has been on the floor three limes in his career. Perhaps the real Ali came to Ihc fore when be was question- ed about his philosophy and his religion. He turned quiet and sincere as he spake of the many activi- ties he takes part in that do not make the papers. lie ex- plained his famboyant public life by saying, "I live a normal personal life, bul when I'm on stage I have to do my part." Ali is an enterlamcr. He is also one of the greatest boxers of all time. But perhaps more important in lodnys world of drop outs and sluff offs, he a man true lo his convic- tions, no ma HIT what Ihe con- sequences. Muhammad -Ah is "The Greatest." Now the bailie is on for the 35 gold medals lo be awarded in hockey, skiing, ligure skating, speed skating, bobslcdding, luge racing and the biathlon. The Games were under trim sail today a.s seeded hockey teams played their first elimina- tion mutches lo win a place in the championship section. Rus- sia, the defending champion, did not have to qualify for the six- country title round-robin. Ten other countries battled for the five remaining top berths. FULL PROGRAM FRIDAY Full sail was the order of the day for Friday, when the full program is unveiled with two gold medals at slake in the men's speed skat- ing event and the 30-kilometre cross-country ski race. The first compulsory school figures will be skated Friday in the women's competition, and the Canadians banked on Karen Magnussen of Vancouver to come home with a medal al- though she faces tough competi- tion from two American girls and world champion Beatrix Schuba of Austria, a whiz in the. compulsories. Miss Magnussen, 19, placed third in the world champion- ships last year behind Miss Schuba and Julie Holmes of the Uniled States. Janet Lynn is the other American contender. Sixty athletes from 16 coun- tries will depart at 30-second in- tervals in the lO.G-mile cross- country race with Jarl Omholt- Jensen of Inuvili, Northwest Territories, drawing the 20th position ard Malcolm Hunter of Oltawa starting as No. 46.

Hartley, Toronto, Gehrig, Montreal, and and Hans Andy Faulds, Burlington, Ont., try for a medal in the first two of four heats. HEATS FOR LUGE RACERS The luge racers also lace Ihnir initial heals, with Larry Arbuthnot, Saint Laurent, Que., Dave McComb, L'Annoncialion, Que., Denis Michaud, St. Jer- ome, Que, and Poul Nielson, Calgary, all competing. The ski jumpers also will be out in force in lliu 70-metre event of the combined competi- tion. All of Friday's competition, except Ihe hockey, ends before midnight EST lonight. The opening ceremony, in the outdoor rink set amid the lovely snow-clad mountain landscape of Holtkaido, was a color televi- sion producer's dream. It began with the teams marching past the royal enclo- sure in strikingly contrasting uniforms, and ended with balloons being released and col- ored smoke bombs leaving rain- bow patterns in the sky. The Canadian team, bundled in fur-capped coats, marched smailly past the Japanese royal family with Miss Magnussen, bravely holding the Canadian flag in the brisk wind. The Russians looked likr. furry bears in their seal and sable coats, the Swiss like red- and-while candy canes and the Spaniards like matadors in black-and-rcd capes and Cor- doba hats. The Japanese, as host nation, marched last, in all-white out- fits. Izumi Tsujimura, a Japanese girl, skated gracefully into the arena with the Olympic torch, which started out Dec. 28 on ils traditional journey from Olym- pia, Greece. HideM Takada, a Japanese runner, bore it up the carpeled staircase and ignited the Olympic flame. Ruth Hulchinson, the lithe- some bnincllr- from North Van- couver. could have been ex- cused had the odd tear fallen as she and her Canadian team- males marched into the rink. Mclnnis, Denson drafted Colts, Cowboys did all right NEW YORK (AP) Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Colts, Ihe last two Super Bowl champs, apparently got richer in this week's National Football League draft. "At first said an ex- ecutive of one NFL team, who requested that his name not be used, "I'd say Dallas and Balti- more got the best of it over- all." The Cowboys got nine players in the first four rounds and the Colts got some good athletes, particularly in the second round when they had three straight picks. Other teams that did well in the first two rounds were Green Bay Packers, Cincinnati Ben- gals, Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos, St. Louis Cardinals and Buffalo Bills who had the first pick in defensive end Wall Patulski of Notre Dame. The shortest NFL draft ever wound up Wednesday evening but 26 teams selected a full complement of 442 collegians. Although they picked 26lh and last in the opening round, the Cowboys came up wilii the player they ranked No. 6 in the country, 227-pound running back Bill Thomas of Boston College. With three choices in the sec- ond round, the Cowboys went for Houston running back Rob- ert Ne-whouse, whose yards in 1971 made him major college football's second highest single-season ground-gainer; John Babinecz of Villanova, a 220-pound linebacker with speed, and wide receiver Char- lie MfKcc of Arizona. The Colts' first pick was 256- pound tackle Tom Drougas of Oregon and in the second round Ilicy added Jack Miidren, Okla- homa's wishbone quarterback; Michigan wingback Glem Doughty and Pcnn State run- ning back Lydell Mitchell. Baltimore unearthed wide re- ceivers Doughty, Michigan State's Eric Allen, who holds Ihe one-game major college rushing record of 350 yards, and Herb Washington, Allen's team- male. Also quarterbacks Van B r o w n s o n and all-American Gary Wichard. On the first two rounds, Green Bay came up with cornerback Willie Buchanan of San Diego Slate, the younger brother of veteran back Ed Buchanan with Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the Ca- nadian Foolball League.
