Tlie Sapporo Olympic Com- mittee said it sent a formal in- vitation to Canada last July nnd il still is awaiting a formal reply. But Bunny, a great back-room manipulntor, said today he was behind Japan's invitation to bring Canada back into the in- ternational field. "I told the he said, be happy to have Canada fill one of the five va- cancies in the Olympic field even though they haven't com- peted internationally for the last lAW years because of tlie profes- sional dispute. Of 16 eligible countries, only II have accepted for the Olympics. "I also told the CAHA this when I was in Canada in June." "But these he added, "very stupidly decided not to send over a bunch of kids who would give their right arms to get into tlie Olympics." said Bunny, "I've given up trying. Theres only one solution. We'll have to can- cel the affiliation of the CAHA with the IIHF." WHAT NOW? Was he figuring on doing this now? "I'm not going to propose it but it could happen." Actually, C a n a d a 's hockey problems result less from Bunny than from Avery Brun- dage, the venerable American head of the International Olym- pics Committee, who is death on play-for-pay. Meanwhile the Sapporo Olym- pic Committee said Wednesday that it expects a formal rely by around Sept. 10 on whether Can- ada will send a hockey team to the Winter Olympics here next February. A spokesman said the com- mittee has not yet been in- formed of the Canadian Ama- teur Hockey Association's deci- sion not to send a team to the Olympics. Canada has competed in every Olympic hockey tourna- ment since Toronto Granites won the gold medal in the 1924 Games at Chamonii, France. Tlie spokesman said the com- mittee in the name of its gen- earl secretary, Tomoo Sato, sent a formal invitation to the Canadian Olympic Association last July to send a hockey team. The spokesman said he re- ceived a cable from Harold Wright of Vancouver, president of the Canadian Olympic Com- mittee, on Aug. 21 saying that he (Wright) appreciated the in- vitation. PROMISES DECISION Wright was quoted as saying in the cablei "The matter now being fully investigated. Expect decision in two to three weeks." The Sapporo officials said that they had obtained approval from the president of the Inter- national Ice Hockey Federation to invite a Canadian team to the Winter Games. The permission was necessary since Canada did not take part in the world championships held last March. The invitation urged that Can- ada lake part in the Olympic hockey because entries were rather small in number, the spokesman said. A total of 12 countries are ex- pected lo take Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, Sweden, Finland, West Germany, Switz- erland, the United States, Nor- way, Yugoslavia, France, Po- land and Japan. ISO fER SON-IN-LAW FAVOUR: I CAN'EARYERBREATHIN'J V WHV DON'T VES BECAUSE IT'S OWF AN ANSWER THAN YOU OWE ME Assaulted Rico Curly Three policemen ATLANTA (AP) Three po- licemen accused of beating At- lanta Braves outfielder Rico Oarty were fired early today after a aldermanic po- lice committee hearing. The committee found the offi- cers guilty of conduct unbecom- ing an officer. The three, J. R. McEarchem, L. D. Smith and C. E. Turner, were accused of assaulting Carty and his broih- er-in-law, Carlos Ramirez, in a fracas Aug 24. "We knew we were fired be- fore we went Turner told a radio station. "It was a railroad job from the word go." "I believe we were done Smith said. McEarchern testified at the hearing that Carty threw the first punch at the other two offi- cers. He said Carty "went ber- serk. He'd gone mad.'' Smith and Turner, off duly and in plainclothes that night, were said to have called the two black men "cop-kitting niggers" and were reported to have dis- appeared after the'altercation. McEarchern testified that he didn't know Smith or Turner be- fore the incident and was not aware they were policemen. He said he had not told them they could leave and that he had made 500 arrests as a police- man without anyone ever hav- ing gotten away before. Earlier in the trial, Carty tes- tified that he and Ramirez drove up to where McEarchern was parked on an Atlanta street to report that two white men in another car had called him a nigger. He said the uniformed police- man struck Ramirez with a pis- tol and put him in the police car. Carty claims to have been beaten and kicked while lying on the ground. The Braves' slugger, known as "The Boeg Boy" to his fans, said he didn't land any blows but wished he had. REPORTS INJURIES He testified that since the fight his knee, injured last win- ter in a baseball game, "is clicking again." He also said his eye may be permanently dam- aged and that his ear hurls when he yawns. Carty further testified that when he asked the uniformed officer for help, the policeman hit him in the face with a "slap jack." The officer told the other two white men to leave after the fight, Carty said.
