Montreal officials deny any rift MONTREAL (CP) Roger Rousseau, commissioner- general of the 1976 Summer Games, has denied that any rift has developed between the Montreal organizing committee and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) concerning television rights. Rousseau attended an IOC executive meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland, earlier this week and said on his return home Tuesday night he was "most surprised" to hear of criticism by IOC president Lord Killanin of Ireland. "When we left Lausanne everything was most Rousseau said. In Lausanne Monday Lord Killanin told a news conference he was dissatisfied with the way the Canadian organizers of the Games had informed him of the contract they concluded with the American Broadcasting Co. (ABC) for United S< tesi television rights to the Games. Lord Killanin told the news conference he had learned of the million sale to ABC in The IOC president said that in fact, the rights had been sold for million and the other million had been for "hardware and setting up the signal." He gave no further details. Rousseau denied Lord Killanin's claim that the million from the deal with ABC would be split with half being paid in cash and the rest going for hardware and setting up the signal. GIVES FIGURES "That is not Rousseau said. "We will receive million in payments from ABC and we are directing million of that into facilities. However, and I repeat, the payments to us will be million." In the organizing committee's official statement on the contract, made Jan. 3, 1973, Rousseau said in part that "no amount of money changed hands at any time during the negotiations. The amount of million will be given to us by instalments in accordance with the contract.'! Rousseau denied that the organizing committee has been using a figure more impressive than the actual cash flow will be. "That is he said. "In our statement last year we said the fee was for facilities and rights." Last year's statement said: "The million covers the rights as such and technical facilities." Tuesday night the commissioner-general said the organizing committee will save money in that it will have to pay the IOC only based on the million figure. "The other million must be steered into facilities because, don't forget, we are committed to delivering million to the CBC." The CBC has said it will re- quire millions from the federal government for facilities in order to fulfill its role as host broadcaster. It is also to receive million from the organizing committee. 'Horns taste defeat The Athletes in Action basketball club proved to be too tough for the University of Lethbndge Pronghoms and defeated them hosts 100-54 in an exhibition men's hoop tilt Thursday night The touring Athletes in Action, who are comprised of ex-collegiate players from the United States, were just too much for the locals who trailed 51-18 at the half. Dwight Miller led the smooth-flowing attack for the visitors with 16 points while Mike Hopwood, Tim Teer and Bill Alexson chipped in with 14 apiece The locals came up with a solid team effort with every player managing at least two or more points Phil Letham was the top point-getter with 16 The Pronghoms will see action again this weekend when they travel to the coast for a pair of Canada West University Men's Basketball League games against the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds Meanwhile the U of L Pronghorns hockey team will close out then-1973-74 Alberta College Athletic Conference Hockey League season Friday night. The Pronghorns have only won four games thus far in their initial season, but will be out to finish their schedule with a victory over the visiting Mount Royal Cougars. Game time is set for at the Henderson Lake Ice Centre The CBC has set up its own Olympic Television and Radio Organization (ORTO) and it is expected to reach contract terms with the organizing committee within the next month or two, defining in the contract ORTO's duties as host broadcaster. Rousseau denied that the IOC will act as a watchdog over the organizing committee as negotiations continue for television rights in Europe. Japan and the Soviet Union. A communique issued by the IOC in Lausanne indicated that future negotiations for television rights to the 1976 Games here would be conducted jointly by the organizing committee and the IOC executive board. "That is what we have been asking, to have the IOC represented in such Rousseau said. "After all, they (the IOC) are our partners and they have final approval on contracts. is only proper that they should join with us in negotiations and we are pleased they will do Rousseau said.
