Last Ties Are Broken AMSTERDAM (AP) - The International Olympics Committee has broken its last ties with South Africa because of racial discrimination in sports. It was the end of a long fight which had prevented South Africa from competing in the 1964 and 1968 summer games. The decision Friday, by a 35 to 28 vole, eliminated the tltreat of a boycott by apartheid opponents of the 1972 Games in Munich. Dennis Brutus, president of the South African Non-racial Open Committee for Olympic Sports said he could not predict whether the IOC decision might promote racial integration of sports in South Africa. He stressed that the main point was that the black sportsmen had finally won explicit IOC recognition that they were equal to whites. Other members of the group predicted that the IOC decision would lead to a complete Isolation of white sports in South Africa. Frank Braun, president of the South African National Olympic Committee, however, estimated that the expulsion of South Africa would put back non-white sportsmen in his country 50 years. Reg Honey, South Africa's representative on t h e IOC, handed in his resignation as a result of the vote.
