"Vie already have in writing from the federal government the promise of financial assist- ance, and our bid for the Games stressed that it would lie ecologically sound because it would ensure the orderly devel- opment of Whistler Mountain." The choice ot the site now will be in Uie hands of the In- ternational Olympic Committee and it "should be decided in the near future who will get the Games Hindmarch said. However, the Games won't be automatic for the Vancouver group. Lake Placid, N.Y., the village that was host lo Ihe 1932 Winter Olympics, bid for the 1976 Games, but lost out to Denver.

Lord Killanin, new president of the International Olympic Committee IOC, faced his first major crisis following Tuesday's referendum in Colo- rado. But Killanin, who had been visiting the site of the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, arrived at, his Dublin home after an all night journey and declined comment on the Colo- rado vote. On hearing ot the voters' re- jection of the Games for Den- ver, Clifford Buck, president of he United States Olympic Committee, said: it is a tremendous dis- appointment to me. I think it's a Iragedv for the stale and a trssedy for the nation that the people cf Colorado were not aware of the great privilege and great honor to host the 1976 Winter Games." A statement from IOC head- quarters at Lausanne, Switzer- land, said Lord Killanin would meet with three vice-presidents of the executive committee Monday lo discuss the situa- tion. The three vice presidents are Count Jean de Beauont of France, Herman van Kame beelt of Holland and Willy Daume of West Germany Henry Kimbrough, a director of Citizens for the 1976 Winter Olympics, paid, "I'm bitterly disappoinlcd. "You need the political sup- port and backing of the people to stage the Games and I can see no way that Colorado can stage the Olympics now. "This is a tremendously poor reflection on the Uniied States. We've frequently heard the term 'Ugly American.' Well, we've proved the term again. We've said 'no' lo the world." Opponents of the Winter Games in Colorado were jubi- lant. Cheers and flowing cham- pagne greeted the returns at the election night headquarters in Denver where opponents gathered. The anti-Olympics drive was led by Citizens for Colorado's Future (CCF) composed mostly of young people. Meg Lundstrom, 24, a CCF director, said, "We were wor- ried at the end of the campaign about the outcome, but we kept trying to focus on the Issues." Miss Lundstrom has said op- ponents thought the Olympics would cost too much money and would encourage haphaz- ard growth In Colorado. Olympic organizers .said the Games would cost million, but opponents argued that the event would really cost much more. Many voters apparestly thought taxes would be raised because of the Games.
