Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 TH! IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Mtiy IS, 1970 Summer And Winter Games Set For North America In 1976 ioscow Officials Seething At Montreal Selection AMSTERDAM (CP) The torch from Mount Olympus, the home of gods in ancient Greece where the tradition of athletic combat, will come to Montreal in the Slimmer of 197G, the In- ternational Olympic Committee decided Tuesday. By awarding the Summer Olympics to Canada's biggest city six years hence, the cont- mittee snuffed out Vancouver's hopes to play host to the 197C Winter Games and'left Moscow bristling over "the holding of Olympic Games as a privilege of Western countries." In the surprise move, Mon- treal heat out Moscow and Los Angeles to bring the Olympics in Mexico City in 19GH and scheduled for Munich in Canada for the first time. Denver in mountainous Colorado was selected for the winter surpris- ing since the Winter and Sum- mer Olympics' will be on the same continent in the same year. Vancouver's bid for Whistler Mountain in Garibaldi, B.C., a p r e -v o t i n g favorite, trailed badly on fhe first ballot and was dropped from the second ballot. It took tliree ballots to pick Denver. It would have been unusual for the IOC to award both sum- mer and winter competition to the same country, and as Van- couver Mayor Tom Campbell put it when he heard of Montreal's selection: "There's 10 way for us now." Montreal, aided by the super salesmanship of dynamic Jean Drapeau, who had brought a world's Expo and major league baseball to his Quebec metropolis for the first time in Canada, won over Moscow on the second ballot. Moscow had a plurality on the first ballot b'lt was eight of the required majority as it led Montreal 28 to 25, with Los Angeles third with 17. There were 70 IOC voting members. With Los Angeles eliminated from the second ballot, nearly all of the California city's supporters switched to Montreal while Moscow did not gain any votes. Montreal finished with 41 votes to 28 for tbe Soviet capital. There was one blank ballot. The Los Angeles delegation expressed disappointment, but Bowling Banter CAPRI BOWL, Matt Bcrnhart, who has turned in some sparkling efforts this past season, got the nod as the men's bowler-of-the-week by starting play in the Senior Citizens Spring League in a real blaze of glory he came up with six straight strikes, a spare, four more strikes and then a headpin for a sizzling 400, finishing the three-game set with an 871 triple. Marion Tolley was also in a pin-battering mood to take women's bowler-oHhe- week honors with an average of 184 she started her second game with 15, proceeded to rattle off 10 straight strikes and left the right comer with her last ball for an eye-catching 418 her triple was 801. The women's doubles challenge wound up with Linda Malcomson and Lynnc Lengycl down ing Isabel Orsten and May Hiebert by 59 pins in the closely- fought three-game final, Lynne showing the way with a 310 and 813 triple. Mike Tobo and Norm Tolley called off the men's doubles challenge in a cliff-hanger of a six-game rolloff against Gary Tunbridge and Bert Mezei. by a two pins, to Mike rolled a high single of 300 and for the six, Norm 305, 307 and Gary 361 and and Bert 329, 329 and the Soviet news agency Tass, smarting from the embarrass- ment of erroneously announcing the selection of Moscow basec on its plurality after the firsl ballot, denounced the choice ol the Canadian city as "contrary to logic and common sense.' The decision, it said, was a "blow to the Olympic movement and its ideals" and charged that "it can be concluded that some people in the IOC regard the holding of Olympic Games as a privilege of Western countries." In the balloting for the Winter Games, Denver received 23 votes on the first ballot; Sion, 18; Tampere, Finland, 12; and Garibaldi, 9. One vote was invalid. With the bottom city removed from con- sideration after each ballot, Sion led after the second ballot with 31 to 29 for Denver and nine for Tampere. On the third ballot, Denver took it 39 to 30. The 1972 Winter Games will be in Sapporo, Japan. Drapeau, jubilant that his city of about population ted bested the Russian capital of more than proclaimed that Montreal will put on the Games with "simplicity, dignity and in the great tradition of the grandeur of man." Montreal will not make an "astronomic" spending spree of the Games. Drapeau ducked questions about how much might be spent on the Games, although the city RELAX THE RIGHT ARM No about you've heard of the "flying right elbow." That hap- pens at the top of the.backswing, when, the right elbow flics too far away from the body. This is fine if you're like a Jack Nicklaus or a Gay Brewer who can bring 'that elbow back in close to the tody on the downswing. If you can't, you'll probably swing out- side the ball and slice. This right elbow error usually starts in the takeaway. It is often caused "by a golfer allowing too much 'tension to creep-, into right arm, especially his elbow. the right arm is the least bit stiff, it will'bc forced away from the body on thc'bacfc swing. At address, make it a point to relax your right arm, bending it easily at the elbow so that the latter almost touches-your body. Then it will "fold" correctly on the backswing (see illustration) and the elbow won't the ftp. I770NAT1. V- OLYMPIC WINNERS Mayor William H.

Some reservations were ex- pressed about the cost of the event but most comments were enthusiastic. In the City Hall office of Mayor Jean Drapeau, who was in Amsterdam to present the city's bid for the Games to the International Olympic Commit- tee, cheers rang out when the announcement was broadcast by a local radio station. Premier Robert Bourassa told a news confernece in Quebec City he will discuss with Mon- treal officials the possibility of provincial government financial support for the Games, although the city's official bid to the IOC maintains that the city can keep costs down because most of the major construction work undertaken for Expo 67. The city has promised to con struct a new stad ium, an Olympic village to ac commodate athletes, a swim ming pool and a press centre. In addition, it will prepar rowing and canoeing courses, cycle track and shooting an archery ranges, all within 2 miles cf the city centre. All of this will be done with out costing Montreal taxpayer anything, the mayor insists. He estimates expenditures on the press centre and Olympk village at but sayf both of these facilities can be converted to low-rental housing after the Games and will thus qualify for 95-per-cent federa and provincial government sub sidization under urban renewal JACK'S PLUMBING SERVES LETHBR1DGE For Estimates Phone JACK FULLER 328-2515 An estimated in :elevision and radio revenues vould more than pay for the Olympic stadium, expected to :ost Other expected sources of in- "ome are the sale of booklets and souvenirs and expenditures by tourists. Mayor Drapeau's Amsterdam triumph over rival bids from Moscow and Los Angeles bore out his statement in a 1868 in- terview: "We have accepted the vocation of Montreal to tackle great challenges." Florence, Italy also presented a bid but was not considered a major con- tender. Tuesday's triumph also made up for an IOC decision in 1966 which favored Munich, Ger- many over Montreal as the site of the 1972 Summer Games. TOURISTS ACT FAST Some tourists were already planning Tuesday to visit Mon- treal and attend the Olympics. The Queen Elizabeth Hotel dosed its reservation books for 1976 only three minutes after the announcement was made that Montreal will play hast to the Games. "The phone started ringing immediately after the an- nouncement came said a spokesman for Hilton Canada Lid., which operates the hotel. 'We got tliree reservations in hree minutes." Donald Mumford, president of filton Canada, ordered the re- servation bocks closed to allow management to decide how to handle the expected flood of re- ervations.
