PAGE EIGHT BLYTI1EVILLE. (ARK.) COURIEK NEWS US .S.OLIPIG lEI'S Telegraphic Games Might Be Solution, Rut Oh, Those Tolls! •cntimie his good work of rescuing Ihe Games for America, The Olympic Games oujlit to be brought up lo dale. The lele- graphic system at leasl would bo lomothing new and worthy of n trial, even at the risk of a premature celebration in some iia- tlcn due to a typographical error, By HARRY GRAVSON Sports Editor, NBA Service Before the American team shoves off for Toklo or Helslngfors, or viiatever the destination of Hie 1940'joy ride, It mlg'nt not b; a bad plan for the-Olymplc committee to draft Mnj. Smedley D. Bitt- ,ler or Warden Uwes or somebody * like that, to keep the boys am! girls in line. Either that or conduct Die games by pable. Telegraphic college track and field meets arc highly successful, as are rifle and pistol mutches, chess nnd checker tournaments, and other forms of outdoor and Indoor S|x>ft. With the telegraphic scheme In effect It wouldn't be necessary to conduct a lirother-can-yoii-siiare-a- dlinc campaign lo raiss $350,000 with which to send His noble athletes abroad, and (hey seem to bo able lo behave thcmss'lves tit hon\c. There are flaws in the telegraphic arranqemrnt. however. ]i wouldn't'afford officious brass iiats and badge-wearers an ocean trip on the cull, and then, too, there always wcutd be the risk of Avery Brundage dismissing a telegraph operator or suspending a messenger boy. It probably Is just us well Hint the : 1930 American Olympic a:iay did not salt for Berlin any sooner Mian it did if it had, the augiir.t committee easily might have pur- la) ed Its lust for authority into nn American defeat. With n committee that couldn't stand the sight of the beauteous Eleanor Holm Jarrctt with a champagne cocktail in her liaml, it wasn't surprising tiiat the two young boxers. Joe Church nnd How ell King, jvcre ordered home, apparently for lowering Ihelr amateur standing to plcblan suiK Illby Holman's llcconis - S«flend 'Over Continent One of the most unusual features of the eleventh modem Olympic Games -, practlcallv svas lost sight of In .the excitement over the disbarment of Mrs. Jar- rctt and the 'arrival of the American forces In Germany. It was Ihe rarrylng of the Olym- pic.torch from the tiny village cf Olympla, In southern Greece., classical birthplace of .universalsport,' about 2000 miles to Berlin. Thb set a new all-time distance mark lor currying the torch. It scattered the best records ol LIbby Holman and others all over a continent . ; Thirteen joung Greek girls .participated in the solemn ceremony' m which the torch was lit by the : sun's rays, focussed .through ,a : magnifying glass, and presented to the first of 3000 runners from seven European countries. At Payal, Jugoslavia, the torch went out like Joe Louis. The torch department had made no provision for this. It couldn't locate u magnifying • glass, let alone 13 young Greek girls In Ju- goslavia, and was |n a ciunndruy until someone produced a match, With the tapei once more ablaze, the relay again was on Its way and the 1936 Olympic Games vcei'e saved. The International Olympic Committee ,no doubt got this toreh- beartng idea from the Great American Bunion Derbies conducted by Cash-and-Carry Pylc ' some years back. Pyle and :his pavement .pounders suffered ' untold hardships runninj .gauntlets of sheriffs from coast to coast. In Washington, D. C., recently, a waiter wns; arrested and thrown in the liooscgow for ankllna around town with n lighted lantern in his hand and claiming that he was searching for Diogenes. When a flatfoot collars a fellow conducting his own private search and minding his own business with a lantern, what would happen to a bloke dashing down Pennsylvania Avenue with a lighted torch? They'd probably mistake him for ZIoncheck and hustle him into a psychopathic ward. Typographical Error Might Cause Premature Celebration If an announced p'urposc of the Olympic Games Is.-to present ; living picture o! athletic contests of antiquity, they do a good job in some respects. Torch-tear Ing,is nn old Greek custom, dat Ing .back to Sappho. Tennis, the one real Interim lional game, is conspicuous by 11 absence in the Olympic Game:, Nor Is there competition In golf which also is played around th •world. Basketball is part of ll official program for the first time Tennis was abandoned follow Ing the 1924 edition of the Olym pic Games In Paris, due to th time /required to build sultabl courts. The method seems lo be lo keep as much of the show a possible in one locality, althougl It Is difficult to sec the objcclio to borrowing neighboring' court and a course for tennis and gol In their places there arc sue exciting contests as weight liftin and canoeing. Who cares to i a blood-s»eating behemoth grun Ing over a giant dumb-bell? Ar. who -nants to. paddle his ow • canoe in public and without pretty girl?
