Athletes bagged a total of 109 Gold medal Sand dominated the Field As usual. However american sprinters boxers and Tennis players fared badly. So did the baseball team. Cuba 7-1 was first with the . 5-3 in second be never won in baseball said Lentz. We Only invented restless . The general manager of the Green Bay Packer sign t sure but he says the team May have a new coach in 1967. The present coach is Vince Lombard who was great when he had it but in 1966 he could win oly four games in a Row before getting trounced by san francisco21-20 and the general manager has had doubts about him Ever make it worse the packers also lost their ninth game of the season getting creamed by Minnesota 20-17, and stalled around until the 13th game of a 14-game schedule before wrapping up their second straight Western division championship their fifth in seven years. The general manager is an impatient Man named Vince Lombardi and the coach knew what was Good for him. Whipping Dallas for the National football league title last sunday and hoping to clobber the Ameri can league champions two weeks later. Seriously it would not be a shocking Surprise if Lombardi were to pack it in As coach As he says he May and devote his working hours henceforth to the general manager s Job which involves everything from signing players to making sure the stadium turf is properly watered. Since january 1959, he has been doing it All besides serving As a director of the people s Trust & savings Bank of Green Ebay wis., a member of the Council for human relations to give his player laugh director of Fordham University a red Smith member of the citizens committee of St. Norbert College president of the Wisconsin state mental health Assn., the cancel fund Dairy month chairman for the state of Wisconsin special events coordinator for the City of Hope and Star of the Vince Lombardi show on television.

V Tokyo golfers win of Katsugi Katsugi Nas Japan is it was slobs Day on the Katsugi Golf course As a Tokyo team Cap tured a playoff in the first annual slobs and gobs Golf tournament by 11 first Outing of the Good will event ended in an 8�6-80 tie. The Tokyo group wrapped up the Champ on ship and the kanto cup with an aggregate 755-70 5. Katsugi s contingent i composed mostly of chief Petty officers stationed Kataoka of Tokyo walked away with the Low net trophy donated by the chiefs club. He carded a net 67 with a 414283and a 16 Handicap. The second Low net prize went to Jack Lamoyne of Tokyo with a net 70 on a round of 48-4694 and 24 Burroughs of Katsugi had the Low Gross score 38-3775. No worlds to conquer a la this raises hell with his Golf swing and two years ago he realized it was time to slow Down. So he resigned As a director of the Milwaukee braves partly because he was going to vote against jumping to Atlanta and knew that if he did they d fire him and get somebody who d vote , since his team won the nil title again and goes on to defend the Honor of Pete in the super bowl hell have no More worlds to conquer As a has already established records unparalleled in the grisly world of pro football unmatched even by such licensed wonder worker As George Halas curly Lambeau Steve Owen and Paul of these took Over As a Rookie without credentials As a head coach in College or Post graduate football and drove a Tea to five conference championships and four league titles in his first eight years. The verb drove is used advisedly As anybody who knows Vincent Lombardi will . Who does the encore tp1ie question is where could Vince Lombardi. The general manager find a successor to Vince Lombardi the coach who would try to follow his act especially with the original copyright Holder looking Over his shoulder Vince is a scrupulous Man. As a coach he tolerates no inter Ference and As general manager he would slash his wrists before interfering. And that s just it he might very Well wind up slashing his wants Are simple merely to win every pre season exhibition every game during the season every Post season game and every title. Give him that and hell ask for nothing else except a fat Lead in every Quarter of every Reali is that nobody can have that in pro football but he has never resigned himself to this fact. If he retired As coach and the packers fortunes declined could he resist the urge to Stop in and set things right George Halas could to and Halas is hot More dedicated to winning than Lombardi. Instant Success when a Casey Stengel a Ralph Houk or an Allie Sherman takes Over a team and the team wins it is difficult to assign the credit fairly. How much did the Leader contribute and How much is he indebted to the playing talents he inherited with Vince Lombardi there is no such team he inherited in 195 1 was the soft bitten Patsy of the National football league. To re employ a line already overworked in this space the packers of 1958 had overwhelmed one opponent underwhelmed 10, and whelmed were at the beginning no major changes of personnel. Using the same tools his predecessor had Lombardi produced team that won oftener than it lost in his first season seven live took the Western championship in his second third and fourth added two league titles plummeted All the Way to second place for two years then came Back for two More a Case like this it in t hard to decide where the credit should go. There was even a time when Vincent Lombardi was chosen . You can t get better than that. life is newspaper Syndicate Torres bout off Chartchai s Boss Milan Italy a the Man Ager of world flyweight Champion Chartchai Choini of Thailand wednesday Nigist denied report that the Champion would fight mexican Alabran Efren Torres in february.
