PHONE 371-4421 OPEN WEEKDAYS and SATURDAY Thundav, January e, TM UTHMIMH HMALD Olympic chief may try to have skiing dropped Japanese officials going ahead despite Bnindage By THE CANADIAN PBESS Japanese organizers of the Winter Olympics said in Sap- poro, Japan, today (hey are going ahead with preparations despite reports that all skiing events may be dropped from the program because of a dis- pute involving amateurism. Avery Brundage, president of the International Olympic Com- mittee, confirmed Wednesday he suggested to the Interna- tional Ski Federation (FIS) that Alpine and Nordic stung events be dropped from the Sapporo Olympics Feb. 3-13 if some lead' Ing skiers are allowed to com- pete. Brundage warned all national Olympic committees their en tire teams could be banned from Olympic competition if a single member was found to have violated IOC rules on ama- teurism. The FIS replied that Brun- dage was attempting to destroy the Winter Olympic Games. Mesaaki Nakamura, consult- ant to the Sapporo Olympic or- ganizing committee, said today they had not received official notice that the IOC was drop- ping skiing events. WATCH CLOSELY "We are watching develop- ments calmly because we be- lieve the press reports are a bit Nakamura said, adding, however, Japanese or- ganizers were hoping the prob- lem would be solved and that the IOC and FIS reached an amicable agreement before the Games start. Rae Grinnell of Ottawa, a member of the FIS eligibility committee, said Wednesday the federation has offered a counter proposal to Brundage that would retain the Olympic ski program under FIS rules. The latest in a series of skir- mishes between IOC and FIS over commercialism in skiing erupted Wednesday in Lausanne, Switzerland, where 1 was disclosed that a confidents letter from Brundage to three IOC vice-presidents suggests iMlng events be removed from the Olympic program next month. The IOC vice-presidents are Lord Killanin of Ireland, Coun Jean de Beaumont of France and Jonkyeer Herman van Kir nebeek of the Netherlands. An IOC spokesman declined to divulge contents of the letter other than to confirm it bad xen received. It was aisc learned that the letter stated Ihe Alpine and Nordic events be teld elsewhere because of thei wavy emphasis on commercial ism. SESSION A MUST "Neither Mr. Brundage noi any of the three International Olympic Committee vice-presi dents has any authority to change the program unless It is decided in an IOC plenary ses Jan Staube of Norway an IOC representative, said in Oslo. Marc Hedler, FIS president laid in Zurich, Switzerland: would regard such action as a discrimination of the entire sta sport." He said the FIS has made a rule forbidding showing of brand names on ski helmets goggles, clothes and gloves bul allowing them in small letters on skis, poles and boots. It was flagrant flaunting of rand names during tbe fmter Olympics at Grenoble, France, that first drew Brun- age's wrath. He tried, without uccess, to ban Alpine events and later refused to present medals to the event winners. Grinnell admitted in Ottawa he FIS is against such advertis- ng in principle "but there is no rule." He said the original proposal i ban skiing at "Sapporo'was made Dec. 26 to Bjora Kjclls- xom of Sweden, chairman of he FIS eligibility committee. But then "Mr. Brundage pan- eked a bit" and called a meel- ng of the three IOC vice-presi- ents. Grinnell said he would prefer i have the ski competitions under Olympic auspices but governed by less-stringent FIS However, he said mere was as much conflict within the FIS is there was between the feder- ation and the IOC and that FIS president Hodler was following a "precarious double track" as an official of both the FIS and Olympic committee. GrinBell said Hodler erro- neously hid conteuded the Olympic and FIS rules were in reality the tame concerning the commercialism question. Brundage, the 84-year-old IOC patriarch, said in Chicago it was commercial advertising "making human billboards of contestants" that led him to propose a wptnte world championship at Sapporo. Confirming the Lausanne re- ports, he said in an interview: "The situation is as follows: We ski have sent out a bulletin to the national Olympic committees Griese edges Cowboys' pivot NEW YORK (AP) Bob Griese of Miami Dolphins won the first battle of the Super Bowl passers today when he edged Roger Staubach of Dallas Cowboys for the quarterback's spot on The Associated Press all-pro football team. Griese, who passed for 19 touchdowns during the regular season, took the coveted quart- erback's spot with 25 votes to 21 for Staubach in the balloting that salutes the top players in the American and National con- ferences.

Lanier drew 23 votes while Butkus was second with 14. The offensive team also had John Brockington of Green Bay Lakers reach 32 games By THE ASSOCIATED Presi Cleveland Cavaliers coach Bill Fitch, who was victim No. 32 in the incredible victory streak of Los Angeles Lakers, says the Lakers will meet their "strongest challenge" to their next two National Basketball Association games.

In effect, the action deprives them of the prize money they won in tbe tournament, the Pa- cific Southwest, and demands that they drop their law suit against tournament officials.

Admitting this is a customary procedure in the pre-Olympic program, Brundage said: "The bulletin points out the fact that we have heard rumors that many skiers don't comply with Olympic regulations. "We don't have any .knowl- edge of who Is going to be en- tered in the Winter Olympics until the ofSdal entries are re- ceived later this month. We are informed that many prominent skiers are not eligible according to Olympic rules. "It would be very embarrass- ing to bring the contestants all the way to Sapporo only to find they could not compete." One sample of commercialism he used as an example was a meet at SesMere, Italy, last month in which competitors wore numbers on an advertising space for a wine company, 'IT'S NOT SPORT' "This Is not a sport, but a he said. "It is mak- ing human billboards of contest- ants. We don't like it." Bis suggestion that the skiing events be removed from the Olympic program but be run BS a world championship were ruled out by Masanobu Tomin- age, deputy secretary-general of the Sapporo Olympic organizing committee. Tomlnage said to do so would also violate Olympic rules. He cited Rule 30 of the Olympic regulations which states: No other International sport event may be scheduled in or near the Olympic city during the period of the game, or during the pre- ceding or following week.
