Lewis blows gold chance at being a gracious loser .ft NORM FRAUENHEIM Republic Columnist s F.OUL Carl Lewis tries. He really does. His race with public perception is as close and volatile as his rivalry with Ben Johnson. Often, he appears to be winning. You hear a lot about the new Carl. The new Carl is supposed to be more accessible and a lot less arrogant. He might be. Nevertheless, much of the old lurks within the new. The image makers can scrub away the symptoms. Lewis' white-framed sunglasses are gone. He arrives at news conferences on time. He wants to be liked and he works very hard at it. Maybe too hard. Despite all the packaging, the new Carl is as affected and commercial as the old. He's hard to like. He was beaten as badly in the race for image Saturday as he was in the 100-meter dash. Johnson ran a magnificent race. His 9.79 world record at Olympic Stadium represents history. Yet, Lewis would not acknowledge Johnson's accomplishment. He sat at a table in front of the world's media and talked as if Johnson had run another race on a. different continent. You kept wondering when Lewis would compliment Johnson. He had to. He didn't. Why? It would have been so easy to do so. More important, congratulations to Johnson would have won over the very industry that Lewis is wooing. There's no love for Johnson, despite universal respect for his athletic skills. Johnson glowers. He's more aloof than Lewis ever was. Even after he whipped Lewis and history Saturday, he was in no mood to share his elation. He did not arrive at a news conference until nearly three hours after he crossed the finish line. Even then, he said little that was noteworthy. The difference is that Johnson cares little about image. Go ahead. Detest him. He'll make you respect him, anyway. Like him or not, there's a blunt honesty about the man. See LEWIS, PageD9 Easy victories give U.S. streak of 1 0 Republic Sports Wires SEOUL Michael Carbajal and Romallis Ellis, considered the team's slowest starters, needed a total of about 6'i minutes to stretch the United States' streak to 10 bouts today at the Chamshil Students' Gymnasium. Carbajal's bout ended so quickly he never had a chance to prove he is the best conditioned boxer on the U.S. team. But it took him only a minute to flash his boxing skills. Carbajal, a light flyweight from Phoenix, floored Dang Hicu-IIicn of Vietnam with a ferocious left hook to the chin a minute into the first round. Seconds later, an overhand right from Carbajal resulted in a standing eight-count. The referee stopped the fight 1:54 into the first round, citing blows to the head. Ellis, of Ellenwood, Ga., needed a second round to finish off Kassim Traorc of Mali. The referee stopped the fight on blows to the head 1:44 into the second round. "These guys are just amazing right now," U.S. coach Ken Adams said. "But the bouts are going to get tougher and tougher." Carbajal will meet Canadian Robert Olson and Ellis will oppose Emil Tchuprenski of Bulgaria in quarterfinal bouts. Olson and Tchuprenski each won unanimous decisions. But nobody made it look easier than Carbajal. "After I hit him with the left hook, I just wanted to make sure I stayed relaxed," Carbajal said. "You have to pace yourself, make sure you don't get caught coming in too fast."

"If he gets any more relaxed, he'll fall off the chair," Coulter said at the post-fight press conference. But when Coulter said Carbajal was "sitting in a comfortable position," he was referring to the bracket, not the chair. "Coming in here, I felt he was the favorite for a gold medal," Coulter said.

" It was the Sun Devils' worst loss 'since Oklahoma State buried them, ',45-3, in the 1984 season opener at Sun Devil Stadium. That began ASU's last losing season. ;The Cornhuskers (3-1) handed A,SU's Larry Marmie the first loss of his head-coaching career and gave 'Nebraska coach Tom Osborne his 150th career victory, . ASU (2-1) stunned a Memorial . Stadium crowd of 76,312 and a .national cable television audience by taking a 13-9 first-quarter lead after trailing, 9-0. ! That was unexpected. The outcome was not. It quickly became obvious that ASU's young defense could not contain the Huskers' diverse offense. Nebraska quarterback Steve Taylor carried 1 7 times for 116 yards and a touchdown. Starting I-back Ken Clark ran 22 times for 122 yards and another score, and backup I-back Terry Rodgers ran 13 times for 113 yards and a touchdown.

Welcome to General Hospital, NFL style. Instead of the Cardinals playing without quarterback Neil Lomax and his arthritic left hip, it's the reigning Super Bowl champion Washington Redskins who must learn if there's life after quarterback Doug Williams, who is out because of an appendectomy. The oddsmakers certainly haven't lost hope. They've installed Washington as a 3'$ -point favorite today at Sun Devil Stadium, a drop of only two points since Williams was sidelined Wednesday. In Williams' place steps Mark Rypien, a third-year pro from Washington State who is making his regular-season debut. "For (Williams), it's terrible. For me, it's time to put up or shut up," Rypien said. "My thoughts and prayers are with him, but I have some guys counting on me to get it done." Popular opinion appears to favor Phoenix stopping Rypien (pronounced RIP-in). The thinking is that the Cardinals surely have been aided immensely. "There's no such thing, unless seven or eight of their guys are out," said Cardinals wide receiver Roy Green. When last seen a week ago, the Redskins were without starting defensive end Charles Mann, linebacker Monte Coleman and cornerback Barry Wilburn, but still beat Philadelphia, 17-10, and sacked Randall Cunningham six times. Wilburn is the only MIA today, as Mann and Coleman rejoin teammates Wilber Marshall, Dexter Mauley, Dave Butz and Darrcll Green in the starting lineup. Meanwhile, the Hogs are new and improved on the offensive line, giving Tim my Smith room to run and Rypien more time to find wide receivers Art Monk, Gary See CARDS, pageDlS Cardinals vs. Redskins KICKOFF: 1 p.m., Sun Devil Stadium.

OUTLOOK: Defending Super Bowl champion Redskins are playing without quarterback Doug Williams, but Cardinals must play nearly perfect game to win. Familiarity worries Thompson Puerto Rico has U.S. training By Jim O'Connell The Associated Press SEOUL Three victories from the gold medal, the U.S. men's Olympic basketball team will see some familiar faces in their quarterfinal match-up with Puerto Rico. Of more concern to coach John Thompson, however, will be which faces play for his team as one major and three minor injuries cloud the picture for the United States. Thompson used only eight players Saturday in a 102-35 rout of Egypt as he rested J.R. Reid, Stacey Augmon and Willie Anderson, each of whom could have played if needed. But Hersey Hawkins probably will miss the rest of the tournament because of a strained right knee. "I would like to play but I don't want to chance anything by going out there and playing. If there's any kind of concern in my mind, I'll just wait," said Hawkins, first-round draft choice of the Philadelphia 76crs, "I'd rather get ready for the NBA than worry about something out there." The U.S. team was the only undefeated team in the five-game preliminary round. In Monday's quarterfinals, they drew Puerto Rico, bronze medalist in the Pan Am Games and the only team to beat Yugoslavia in Seoul. ; "I think that will be a very spirited game, and that's primarily my concern at this point," Thompson said. "I think they have significant shooters. Their point guard is extremely quick. Inside, their big people are very capable, also. So I think they're multidimensional offensively. Defensively, they have the bulk and size to create a problem for anybody." Most of the inside size comes from four U.S. college products Jose Ortiz, the 1987 Pac-10 player of the year at Oregon State and a first-round draft choice of Utah; Ramon Rivas, who played at Temple; Ramoti Ramos, who will be entering his senior year at Seton Hall; and Jerome Mincy, who played at Alabama-Bir- i r t .'.-. r ... t . r- r
