He said the city will be "re- paid 10 times" for anything it must pny to hold the Games. Brundage, 05-year-old honor- ary life president of the IOC, said he was impressed with the progress being ade here in preparation for the Games. Brundage spoke at a civic dinner in his honor to wind up a two-day visit here. He said the Olympics, when awarded to Melbourne, Aus- tralia, for 1956, had brought 'a great outcry" of protest from people opposed to the cost of the Games. "But for Australia it devel- oped immigration tlirough four years of world publicity and in effect brought the whole South Seas into the world." He cited similar opposition Denver group not giving up LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) Despite a recent red light from the citizens of Colo- rado, the International Olympic Committee has not ruled out Denver as a site for the 1976 Olympic Games.

The IOC chief later huddled with his committee men, but it was expected that a decision on the 1976 Olympic site might have to wait several months. The issue was brought to light Monday when a spokesman for the Colorado Citizens Committee To Retain The Winter Games went before the IOC to plead for a second chance. At last week's genera! elec- tion, Colorado citizens turned down a proposal to use slate funds for the Games. Harry Arkin, a Denver law- ye- representing the Colorado citizens group, said that the vol- ers were misled by the proposal on the ballot. "The people in Colorado were not asked to vote on holding the Arkin lold reporters after his meeting with Killanin. "They were given lo vote on an ambiguously-worded question whether slate funds should be taken lo pay for Ihc Games. "The wording was so lhat lialf the people who voted 'no' really meant 'yes.' Arkin has already obtained n temporary court order pre- venting Denver Irom officially notifying the IOC that it has re- jected the Games. when Japan spent S3 billion on Ihe 1964 Tokyo Games, but said the Japanese had virtually ripped the old cily lo shreds and the re-development had made Tokyo "a much belter city for having the Games." Brundage said he knew Mon- treal was being attacked by certain factions about the cosls of Ihe Games, bul that in 1968 Mexico was supposed to be unable to stage the Olympics for Ihe same apprehension over costs. Opposition to the Games has arisen here since Colorado citi- zens voted in a referendum last week against use of state funds to hold Ihe 1976 Winler Games in Denver. Mayor Jean Drapeau has not yet released figures on what the Games will cost Montreal or how the Olympics will be fi- nanced. The mayor says the citizens of Montreal will not be called on for additional tax dol- lars lo finance the Olympics. Since the Colorado referen- dum (here have been calls Ihrough newspaper and radio advertisements for a similar referendum here. Mayor Drap- cnu maintains (here is no need for such a referendum. Tueiday, Novembir 14, 1972 THE IFTHBRIDG! HERALD 11 Campbell cautious on Bobby Hull issue Russian hockey visit hits stalemate NEW YORK (AP) Presi- dent Clarence Campbell's an- nouncement that the proposed series between a touring Rus- sian team and four National Hockey League clubs has, for the moment at least, fallen through Is the latest twist in hockey's cold war with the Communist world. Campbell said Monday that current negotiations between the NHL and the Soviets have been suspended and that he has cancelled a scheduled trip to Moscow next weekend that was to wrap up final details. I think some obstacles have been placed in their said Campbell. "Negotiations have been halted and as of now, there Is a stalemate." Campbell dld> not rule out a resumption of negotiations. "We'll expect some ex- planation and verification from them If they desire to continue Campbell said. The NHL's relations with the Russians have been extremely sensitive ever since Septem- ber's series between Team Can- ada and the Soviet national squad. That eight-game let wai replete with problems but In tin midst of it, the Russian] ex- pressed interest In possible return series against several NHL clubs. Campbell pursued the Idea and it seemed set for January. Then, suddenly came a stum- bling by appears to have scuttled the plans. Campbell did not name the problem but hinted that it in- volved the International Ice Hockey Federation. Russia is a member of the Federation which requires consent of the countries involved before sanc- tioning an international com- petition. FRANCIS DISAPPOINTED "The NHL won't ask for con- sent on behalf of another Campbell said. From that, it would seem that the Russians had asked the NHL to intercede in their behalf with the IIHF. That leaves the proposed series up in the air. At least one NHL general manager is sorry I hat the negotiations seem at a dead end. "I thought we might get an opportunity to play said Emile Francis, general man- ager-coach of New York Rangers. "I was looking for- ward to it." Francis was asked if he didn't think scheduling a mid-season exhibition game might not hurt his team. I don't think he said. "I think if we had the op- portunity to play them, we would owe it to our fans to do it. "If the dates and scheduling were reasonable, why Meanwhile Campbell, presi- dent of the National Hockey League, deftly stickhandled around the controversial subject' of the rival World Hockey As- sociation Monday. Asked lu's reaction to the re- cent court decision freeing, at least temporarily, Bobby Hull and other ex-NHL players to perform In the WHA, Campbell reserved comment. "There is nothing I would en- joy more than to be able to dis- cuss the current state of litiga- Campbell said.

"I am proliibilcd from mak- ing any observation of any kind." When Ihe subject was pur- sued, Campbell remained ada- ment. "This is a literal prohibition due to the risks our side mighl be exposed he said. Al Hie same time, the NHL issued a formal statement on the deci- sion by federal Judge A. Leon Iligginbotham Jr. "The court's decision is a complex, delailed opinion cov- ering ]24 the statement said, "and Is being studied by our counsel to determine whether, in their judgment, any appeals or other action by the NHL or any of its member clubs are required at this time. Who would you give nod to? By THE CANADIAN PRESS This coining weekend is when things begin to shape up for the Grey Cup encounter Dec. 3 in Hamilton and it's time to look at the record. Hamilton Tiger-Cals go against Ottawa Rough Riders in the capital on Saturday in the first of a two-game, total-point series to decide the Eastern representative. On Sunday, so far as the West is concerned, it's all over, with their Grey Cup contender emerging from sudden-death action between Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Saskatchewan Roughriders in Winnipeg. Here's how they compare': Tiger- Cats have won all three games with the Riders this season, but not by 30-22, 17-1G. Hamilton has scored 372 points this year, an average of 26.6 per game, with Ottawa's record 298 points and 21.3. Hamilton has allowed 18.7 points a game, but Ottawa has given away only 1C.3. Over the year, Hamilton's to- tal yards rushing has been greater than that of 132 to and, while the mar- gin is closer in passing yard- age, the advantage still is that ol the lo The EFC plays only .14 games compared with the 16 regular- season battles engaged in by WFC teams. Yet it was Gerry Organ of Ottawa, with 131 poinls, who led all the Canadian Foolball League scorers on one touchdown, 28 converts, 29 field goals and 10 singles. But who's that right behind him in Ihe EFC standings? It's Ian SuntCT of Hamilton. He didn't have any touchdowns, but he hammered through 44 con- Averts, 14 field goals and seven singles for 93 points. Winnipeg-Saskatchewan It was Winnipeg over the Rough- riders 2-1 but, again, not by much. Saskatchewan took Win- nipeg hy 11 ppints when they won 32-21. But in the other two games, Winnipeg triumphed 13- 16 and 28-25 for a total margin of five points. Bombers' 401 to- tal points scored is the highest in the country, 71 points better than Saskatchewan's regular- season mark. But the Riders allowed only 283 Winnipeg's 300. Winnipeg rushed for yards and passed for for Saskatchewan the totals are 2.- 028 and The Bombers will have Don Jonas and Mack Her- ron with one touchdown, 45 converts, 14 field goals and four singles for 97 points, and Herron with 10 touchdowns for 05 points.
