A. U. Head Differs NEW YORK? July 26 AP). Jeremiah T. Mahoney, president of the Amateur Athletic Union, said yesterday that if reports he had heard of German discrimination against Jewish athletes were sub- stantiated, he personally would vote against United States' participat'oo in the Olympic games at Berlin next year.

Mahoney stressed that he was speaking as an individual and not for the A. A. U. and pointed out. likewise, that the A.

A. U. delegation was only a part of the American Olympic Committee which has the final say in Olympic matters. The A. A.

national head said lie had heard rumors of German persecution of Jewish athletes. "If they are true, you can bet I'll vote against our sending a team over there," he added. "There is no room for discrimination on grounds of race, or creed in the Olympics. The A. A.

in 1933, voted to accept a.i invitation to compete at Berlin in 1936 provided Germany pledged that there would be no discrimination against Jewish athletes If that pledge is not kept, I personally do not see why we should compete.

There is a comparative scarcity of i toppotch amateurs, although a fine field is coming up. including Spec Goldman. Willie Turnesa. Charley Koscis, Charley Yates, Zeli Eaton, and Johnny Fischer. Handling the gallery at Country Club Is going to be a somewhat perplexing problem.

The layout Is anything but roomy. The holes are built close to each other. The No. 1 tee is very close to the gorgeous clubhouse. The fairways generally are narrow and lined with trees.

Avery Brundage, president of the American Olympic Committee, said today he knew cf no racial or reli-'gious reasons why the United States shcuid not be represented in the Olymp.c games at Berlin in 193S. "I haven't heard of anything to indicate discrimination against athletes of any race or religion sinc-2 last year when there were reports that Jewish athletes might not be to represent Germany in the games," he said. That question was answered by assurances from German political and sports leaders that there would be no racial, religious or political interference of any kind.

"The time and place for the Oiympic games of 1936 were fixed by the international committee long before the present German government came into power.

The Olympic protocol provides that this must be done at least three years In advance since it takes at least that long to prepare for this great enterprise.
