Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Hunter may not be able to compete in Olympics MUNICH, Germany (AP) Avery Brundogc, president of the International Olympic Com- mittee, has questioned Bobby Lee Hunter's eligibility for the Olympics, because he doubts that the jailed American boxr-r lias lived according to tbe spirit of the Games. Hunter is the National Ama- teur Athletic Union flyweight champion who won a bronze medal for the United States in the Pan-American Games. But he also is a prisoner at the correctional institution at Man- ning, S.C., serving an 18-year term for manslaughter. Briuidage Friday said offi- cials ol the Summer Olympic Games and the International Amateur Boxing Association are examining the 21-year-old figliler's eligibilily In view of his background, wliich includes Killing a man in a knife fight in Charleston, S.C., in 1967. He said he wasn't sure Hunter could compete in the Games be- cause of the basic regulations that athletes must have lived in the spirit of the Olympic Rules, the Games and the Olympic idea. Hunter, however, was allowed to fight in the Pan-Am Games, which are conducted under very similar rules. U.S. officials said they were hesitant about Hunter's participation In the Pan-Am competition because of international image, but ap- proval for the boxer's Inclusion on the American team was granted.

CUELLAR WINS THIRD The Orioles took advantage of four Texas errors and nine walks to give Mike Cuellar only his third victory in eight deci- sions, a sub-par record for the constant 20-game winner. Ills bad start mirrors the Orioles' slow early pace. "The warm weather sure said Cuellar, speaking of the hot Texas climate that is as different as night and day compared with Baltimore weather. "It was a cold, colt spring in Baltimore and couldn't get my arm loose. To- night, no trouble. I had a gow fastball and a pretty good screwball."

After his first-inning single contributed to a two-run rally, Blair doubled home Don Buford from first base lo give the Ori- oles a 3-1 lead.
