The United States, Britain, Poland and East Germany each picked up two gold medals in Sunday's closing track and field events, while Hungary took one. It was a stinging reversal for the Americans, who had won 32 gold medals in the 1967 Universiade in Tokyo. Tlie Soviet Union won the men's high jump Sunday with Valentin Gavrilov, who was the only man to clear seven feet inches. It also took the with Vladi- 13 minutes 56.4 seconds and the women's 400 metre relay in 44.7. The U.S. won the men's 400- ntetre hurdles with Larry James of Villanova, in 50.2 and the men's metre relay.

Martin Reynolds gave Britain its second title in the men's 200 metre in 21. seconds, upsetting all the favorites.
