BROWN is the new fish and game director for Montana. He succeeds Frank Dunkle, who resigned recently to run for governor. Dunkle resigned over a new state policy which calls for the appointment of the fish and game di- rector by the governor. Dunkle feels the new policy leaves the governor with too much authority over such key issues as use of public lands. The new director is from Kalispell, Mont. INDICATIONS ARE that Alberta's new Conserva- tive government is to review its policies with to disposal and use of public lands, parti- cularly those not within park boundaries. At present, there is a complex of regulations pertaining to the use of public lands and the person who tries to sort out a pattern or procedure to follow, is almost invari- ably confronted by a bureaucratic and political jungle. And, when a question is forced for a decision, several departments of governments may all have to be consulted for approval or more indecision. The applicant most often gives up in disgust.

HINTED .AT BAN President Avery Brundage of the IOC, in repeated statements to the press, has suggested that skiers associated with commer- cial interests be declared ineli- gible for the Olympic Games. Presumably this would include several members of the top French and Austrian Alpine teams and some on Scandina- vian Nordic squads. Brundage will head the IOC two-day meeting which starts in Sapporo on Sunday and could decide the issue. Although Hodler has said the FIS would not boycott the Olym- pic Games if some skiers are banned as professionals, some of the individual countries, France and Austria in particu- lar, have threatened to with- draw their entire teams if ac- tion is taken against any of their members. In an interview on his arrival In Tokyo, Hodler said, "FIS doesn't have any idea of boy- cotting the Games because the: main purpose is to have and' make the Olympics a great sue- FrUoy, JMwy II, 1M UTHBMMI HRALD It HEAD OVER HEELS Bill Jones of St. Francis flipt over lee Shulman of Dickinton University during game at Madison Square Gardens Thursday night.
