J»age C-2--INDEPENDENT Ling Biach, Ollf., Wed., Ftb. X mt ISO ICE FOR U.S. SKATERS Rationalist China, India Skiers Barred From Games SQUAW VALLEY UP)--Na tldrialist China's ski team ant India's one-man team were barred Tuesday from taking part in the 19GO Winter Olympics c6uhtrics because are not the two affiliated with the International Skiing Federation. Previously Nati o n a 1 i s t China's skaters had been barred for the same reason. · The ruling came in a cryptic telegram from Bern, Switzerland, signed by the federation. Bern is the home of Marc Hodler, president of the federation. But it was not clear whether the ruling was by Hodler. .. H. D. Thoreau, managing director for the 1960 games, said further efforts will be made to have Nationalist China and India permitted to compete. Thoreau did elaborate. FLAGS OF the U n i t e d States, Korea, and Argentina fluttered in the sunny breezes Tuesday as athletes continued [o pour into the Olympic village. not cause we've had only a half hour practice in the last week.

The weather was so calm ind sunny in the valley Tues- lay after Monday's rain and snow blizzard that there was 10 ice available for the U. S.

The Huskies' tackling and b r i l l i a n t locking had to be the ·#,1 n e s t demonstration of jjasic football f u n d a m e n t a l s "%jt together by a college ^team in years, r. If you viewed the game jon TV or were in Pasadena iji person, you couldn't real- ;ize how thoroughly Jim Owens' Huskies humiliated W.j s c o n s i n . The films s h o w e d five and six 'Hfuskies making EVF.RY tackle. They showed as brilliant a display of punt .coverage as any coach could desire. George Fleming's sensational runs looked even more 'outstanding on f i l m than they did on New Year's Day. I thought this kid from Texas played a great game Jan. 1, but while watching the films I had to bracket him w i t h .Jon Arnett as the finest open field scooter these eyes have viewed in many years. This writer's opinion of Wisconsin quarterback Dale Hackbart went up, too, as I never realized while watch- : ing the game a month ago that he received so little sup- 'port from his teammates. Hackbart is a cool cookie who should become an outstanding pro quarterback. : .".The movies proved plainly, too, that Wisconsin did NOT score its lone touchdown. Taken from the end zone, the'films showed the Badger ball carrier downed a few Jefit from the goal line--something which many press box observers believed true on New Year's Day. If SC wins the Big 5 title this season--as many believe the Trojans will do--it's going to have to be a team 'pf supermen. The Huskies--who don't lose any of their stars--are going to be one of the finest clubs this nation has ever seen. If their Rose Bowl demonstration is any gauge, that is! * * * GOLF SCRIBE Jerry W-ynn forwards the item that C. W. (Catfish) Smith, Hillsdale's gregarious owner who holds the contract on three boxers, too, now has entered the links field by sponsoring 23-year-old Dave Hill. Among those high on Hill is Chick Harbert, who says, "I think Dave has a good chance of making the grade on the tour. He's a nice boy." Yeh, but can he play golf? * * * GRABBING THE BRASS RINGS: . . . Wilt Chamberlain jokingly told newsmen Monday before his Warriors met Minneapolis in the Sports Arena that "you people in California don't treat me as good as the people in Ohio and Kentucky." Seems The Stilt had escorts of Ohio and Kentucky state troopers rush him to a New York banquet last week. A f t e r a game in Cincin- n a t i , the troopers hustled him to the state line where Kentucky officers took over and rushed him to the Covington (Ky.) airport. . . . Wilt said also he wasn't upset at San Francisco writers' comments that they weren't impressed w i t h him even though he scored 41 points in the Cow Palace Sunday night. "I read in the Philadelphia papers that Norm Van Brocklin didn't t h i n k much of San Francisco writers," laughed Wilt, "so I was prepared for "em." . . . A theater on Anaheim St. is advertising a full- fledged canine double bill, "The Shaggy Dog" and some character named Fabian in "Hound Dog Man." Maybe Ihe billing should be corrected to read "Two Shaggy Dogs." * * * MORE BRASS RINGS ON THE MERRY-GO- ROUND: . . . Washington, which lost coach Norm Pcllom to SC, is on the verge of losing another top employe. Publicist John Thompson is reported all set to land the No. 1 Chargers' drum-beating job. . . . SC's able Don Richman had the post offered originally, but the Chargers turned down his salary demand. . . . Is Dave Levy, Poly's crack coach, going to fill Pollom's post at Washington? A little bird chirps that the Huskies definitely arc interested--both in Dave AND his brood of CIF champions. . . . Poly's all-GIF backs Willie Brown and Lonzo Irvin nre t h i n k i n g seriously of joining their buddy, Dee Andrews, at Long Beach City College next fall. Atid what an offensive circus thai would be! . . . Didja notice the first man lo hp quoted as hemp "interested" in the Oakland team's coaching post in the American Football League? Why, Eddie Erdelatz, of course--so what else is new? SPA GOLF- (Continued From Page C-l) practice.

Carmel is still unbeaten and is the only team which has beaten the Saints. The contest was as close throughout as the -final score th n e i t h e r team having more than a five-point margin. After a deadlocked first quarter in which Bill Connolly scored nine of the Saints' ]2 points, St. Anthony opened a two-point lead at halftime. Cathedral led by one after three periods, 39-38, and ap-j peared to have the game j the bag when it took the b a l l j out - of - bounds with a point lead and only seconds left. Price, however, stole the in-bounds pass and drove in for the winning basket as the clock ticked off four seconds to play. Cathedral did not get another shot.

Is Open Game Walter O'Malley's progress, though it has been slow and annoying to him, has left its mark' on sports jarons around the country. When Walter was able to get himself a large and centrally-located piece of land in exchange for undersized Wrigley Field, it left his colleagues arounds the and with the notion that' Los Angeles was open game r or anybody who owned a traveling flea circus. One must admit, however, that O'Malley had a slight jit more to offer--a lop-name major league baseball club- ban a chap l i k e Mr. Bob ihort. M o n d a y , Short con- ulsed many of the basket- all writers at a luncheon vitli his hard-to-get act. \sked if he were going to love his Minneapolis Lakers o L. A. next season, Short eplied carefully: "Well, of course, there's chance. But I'd have to sue vhat the city would guarnn- ee me first. You know, what ind of a rental break will liey make me, how m a n y euson tickets will theyguar- ntee, etc. There are a lot of laces I could go, including Vashington, D. C." irij I wrong, or didn't-- Vashington collapse with a uid as a pro basketball town ot long ago?) After Monday's game had drawn a s t a r t l i n g crowd of nore than 10,000 despite the driving rain, a writer ap- roached Short and said: * * * "WELL, HOW'D YOU LIKE THAT? More than 10,000 this weather. You know, people in our town won't even ut the empty milk bottles on the front porch if il's raining." The Laker owner screwed up his face: "Oh, that doesn't lean much. Wilt the Stilt drew all those funs." It is interesting that on the night of Sept. 30 last, when Chamberlain made Ins pro debut here, the actual (not announced) crowd seemed no larger than Monday's-in perfect weather. Additionally, the first game got more and better pub city, and it did not televise its game live. (Monday's was n Ch. 13.) More likely, ^he two TV games that come in from le East every weekend were responsible for the surprising iraiout Monday. As it did with boxing, television is build- ng pro basketball fans. ·A- * * FOLKS SITTING AROUND THE prers section could e heard cheering their favorites by f i r s t name: "Atta boy. 'uy! Nice block. Tom! Good shot. Joe!" Obviously they had come to know lliem through the itional telecasts. Getting back to Short, who is losing his shirt in Minne- 3olis, I doubt if his hard-tu-get act is fooling anyone. He has no more right to a choice Sports Arena rental flian do Cal and Aileen Eaton when they promote a fight, he thinks Los Angeles is going to guarantee him a cer- ain number of season tickets, he is dreaming. The Rams and Dodgers have found Southern California lush enough territory to induce anyone here. We don't ave to bargain and give prospective immigrants cut rate rms. It would be nice to have a pro basketball franchise, ure. But under Short's terms, who needs it?
