Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE lETHBRlDGE HERAIO WednejcJuy, September 4, Red Smith reports on a day of terror Shocking lack of awareness at Munich Olympic Games By ItED SMITH MUNICH Olympic Village was under siege. One man and perhaps two lay murdered and 10 or more oiliers were held at gunpoint In imminent peril of their lives. (Eventually they met with Still the games went on. Canoeists pad- dled through their races. Fencers thrust and parried in make-believe duels. Boxers scuffled. Basketball players scampered across the floor like happy children. Walled off in their dream world, appallingly unaware of I ho realities of life and death, the aging play- ground directors who conduct this quadrennial muscle dance ruled that a little blood not be permitted to Interrupt play. It was a.m. when Pale- stinian terrorists invaded the lio using complex where ath- letes from 131 nations live and shot tlicir way into the Israeli quarters. More than five Iwurs later, word came down from Avery Branciage, retiring president of the International Olympic Com-1 mittee, that sport would pro- ceed as scheduled. Canoe rac- ing had already begun. Wres- tling started an hour later. Be- fore long, competition was be- ing held in 11 of the 22 sports on UK Olympic calendar. Not until 4 p.m. did some be- lated sense of decency dictate suspension of the obscene ac- tivity, and even then exception was made for games already in progress. They went on and on while hasty plans were laid for a memorial service today. The men wlio run the Olym- pics are not evil men. Their shocking lack of awareness can't bo due to callousness. It has to be stupidity. Four years ago in M e x Ico City when American sprinta.-s stood on the victory stand with fists uplifted in symbolic pro- test against injustice to blacks, the brass of the U.S. Olympic Committee couldn't distinguish between politics and human rights. Declaring that the ath- letes had violated the Olympic spirit by injecting "partisan politics" into the festival, the waxworks rifted the young men's credentials and ordered I them out of Mexico, blowing up a-simple, silent gesture into an international incident. When African mtions and other Blacks threatened to boy- cott the current Games if the while supremacist government of Rhodesia were represented here, Brundage thundered that [he action was politically moti- vated, although it was only through a transparent political expedient that Rhodesia had been invited in the first place. Rhodesia .Tid Brundage were volcd down not on moral grounds but to avoid having an all-white carnival. On past performances, it must he assumed that in A very's view Arab-Israeli war- fare, hijacking, kidnapping and killing all constitute partisan politics not to be tolerated in the Olympics. "And went tlw bit- ter joke Tuesday, "these are professional killers; Avery doesn't recognize them." The fact is, these global clambakes have come to have an irresistible attraction as fo- rums for ideological, social or racial expression. For this rea- son, they may have outgrown their britches. Perhaps in the future it will be advisable to substitute separate world championships in swimming, track and field and so on which could be conducted in a less hysterical climate. In the past, athletes from to- talitarian countries have seized upon the Olympics as an oppor- tunity to defect. During the Pan-American Games last sum- mer In Call, Colombia, n num- ber of Cubans defected and a trainer jumped, fell or was pushed to Ws death from the roof of the Cuban team's dor- mitory. Never, of course, has there been anything like Tuesday's terror. Once those gunmen climbed the wire fence around Olympic Village and shot Mosbe Weinherg, the Israeli wrestling coach, all the lun and games lost meaning. Mark Spitz and his seven gold medals seemed curiously unimportant.

Tigers grub hectic lead Orioles lose, drop to f ourtli By HERSCIIEL NISSENSON Associated Press gporls Writer Baltimore Orioles are the team to beat in the American League East. You can tell be- cause everyone keeps beating them. Tuesday night It was New York Yankees' turn with a 7-6 victory that saddled the Orioles with their fourth defeat in five games and dropped them from a first-place tie down to fourth, which is the equivalent of a dis- aster area for the three-time American League champs. Detroit took over top spot with a 4-2 triumph over Cleve- land. The Tigers are one-half Twins 5-2 while the Athletics rere Idle. In the only other game, Kansas City Royals shipped Texas Rangers 7-2. game points and three percentage ahead of Boston Red Sox, who rallied to beat Mil- waukee 5-3. The Yankees, also one-half game out, trail Boston by one point while Baltimore is one full game and seven points behind tho Tigers.

"It should be a bleeping hiim- said Baltimore IKan- iger Earl Weaver. "I think one :lub will get hot nnd win it and hope it's us. We swung the >at good tonight and I expect iorne hits and nuis the next ew days." Unfortunately, the Yankees swung their bats for five runs against old nemesis Dave McNally in the first inning and were never headed, although the Orioles rallied for three runs in the ninth against Sparky Lyle. Singles by Thurman Jlunson, Bobby Murcer and Roy White started the uprising against McNally and rookie Charlie Spikes slammed a two-run double. IlLch McKinney singled Spikes home and the final run crossed on a bases-loaded walk by reliever Dave Leonhard. The Yankees got two decisive runs in the fifth on doubles by Felipe Alou and McKinney and an RBI single by winning pitcher Lindy McDaniel. Boog Powell accounted for three Ori- ole runs with a single and two doubles. "I still think Baltimore is the team lo said Manager Ralph Houk after beating tho Orioles two of three. MUNICH had a bad Duane Bobick understated after being soundly thrashed by Cuban Teofilo Stevenson at the Summer Olympic Games.

He has an injured "bullock Here's a new one for Tom Seaver By KEN ItAPPOPORT Press Sports Writer Tom Seaver, who has had a sore arm, bad back and muscle pulls in bolh legs, has come up with a new twist: an injured external rotator. "1 don't think I'll be a cripple for the rest of my life, said New York Mets' right- hander after departing midway through Tuesday night's 3-0 loss to Chicago Cubs. Seaver hurt himself throwing a curve ball to Don Kessinger in the fifth Inning and a doctor later diagnosed the injury as an "injured external which Is a muscle in his but- tock. "I thought I had a muscle spasm in my left said New York's No. i pilcher. "I thought it was a spasm that would go away, but it didn't." Despite the pain, Seaver stayed in to pitch to Rich Mon- day and was hurt further when the Chicago centre fielder hit a home run. CHANCES DWINDLE Seaver's chances thus be- came slimmer for another 20- gamc winning season. He's won 16 games and' fulurc starts could be curtailed by the In- jury, which will be further ex- amined today. In other Nallonal League games, Los Angeles Dodgers pounded Cincinnati Reds 9-4; Atlanta Brave's tripped Houston Astros 5-3; St. Louis Cardinals turned hack Montreal Expos 5-3 and San Diego Padres nipped San Francisco Giants 4-3 in 11 innings. Monday knew that it wasn't the real Seaver pitching when he stepped to the plate in the fifth inning. Monday was pleasantly sur- prised when Scaver's pilch came in wilb less velocity than usual. He spanked It over the left centre field wall to break a scoreless tie and sent Rick Reuschel on bis way lo bis sev- enth viclory this Reuschel gave the Mete only three hits and never allowed more than one bascrunner In any inning. "I've been having Irouble lately and I needed this victory pretty said the young Chicago righthander.
