ROSENBERG GRENOBLE, France (AP) Suddenly, the Russians are in trouble in Olympic hockey and —just as suddenly-the Olympics may be in trouble with the Russians In the approaching Summer Games. The Russians, the defending champions who hadn't lost an Olympic or world hockey match since 1963, a string o£ 38 straight games, were 5-4 upset victims to hard-checking Czechoslovakia in the Winter Games Thursday. And the possibility—perhaps a far-fetched possibility—arose that the Russians may boycott the Summer Games. The latter came about on the announcement by the International Olympic Committee that South Africa, barred from the 1964 Games and these Winter Olympics because of racial policies, would Each has a 5-1 record with one game to go in the round-robin tourney. The 1 key match appears to be Russia vs. Canada Saturday. Czechoslovakia plays Sweden, 4-2, in another Saturday match. The United Slates is out of it, even though the Americans' hockey team provided the only bright spot for the United States Thursday. The Yanks beat East Germany 6-4 for their second victory. That gave them a 2-4 record with one game to go, Finland Saturday. The Americans were shut out on medals in the five championship finals Thursday, the women's giant slalom, the men's 5,000-meter speed skating, men's and women's luge singles and men's biathlon relay race. Skaters have picked up all six of the Americans' medals, with Peggy Fleming's figure skating Nancy Greene of Canada copped her second gold medal in the women's giant slalom with a time of one minute, 51.97 seconds, followed by Annie Fa- mose of France and Fernanda Bochatay of Switzerland. Jtfdy Nagel, Enumclaw, Wash., the top American, was 12th with a time of 1:57.39. Manfred Sclimid of Austria and Erika Lechner of Italy won the men's and women's luge singles, Russia took the biathlon relay and Fred Anton Maier of meter speed skating in world triumph the be admitted to the Summer skiers have Games in Mexico City. Russia and several African nations have threatened a boycott if such an action was taken. Canada, meanwhile, whipped Sweden 3-0 in hockey and, along with the Czech upset of Russia, threw the gold medal race into a three-way scramble .between Russia, Canada and Czechoslovakia. only only gold, one The slim chance left, in the men's special slalom Saturday. France's fantastic Jean- Claude Killy is an overwhelming favorite to pick up his third goal medal of the games in that one, with the American team of Billy Kidd, Jimmy Heuga, Spider Sabich and Rick Chafee rated an even chance—at best—to crack the top three. Twelve Bouts Draw A Crowd Twelve exciting Golden Gloves bouts drew a large crowd last night and the young men involved in the action provided lots of good battling for the fans. The bouts are serving as a warmup for the Mid-South championships at Jackson, Tenn., on Feb. 29, Mar. 1-2 and will continue both tonight and tomorrow night at eight o'clock 130. • Dr. John Elliott and John Logston announced that the bouts tonight and tomorrow night will feature more outstanding young pugilists from the Blytheville and surrounding area.

Larry Stordahl, Edina, Minn., and Paul Hurley, St. Paul, Minn., each scored his second goal in the decisive burst. Len Lilyholm, St. Paul, and Doug were Volman, Minneapolis, the other American marksmen. South Africa was re-admitted to the Games on a secret vote of the IOC, announced as "an absolute majority" for the South Africans. Col. John Westerhoff, secretary of the IOC, did not disclosed the exact result of the postal vote. Westerhoff said the vote came after assurances by the South African government that they would have an integrated team, traveling and living together, wearing the same uniform, and marching under the same flag. Trials also would be integrated and selections of the teams would be made by an equal number of white and non-white officials. The IOC suspended South Africa in 1963 because of apartheid in that country. Russia and several African nations had hinted they would withdraw from the 1968 Games in Mexico City if South Africa was admitted. There was no immediate comment from the Russians. Asked about that possibility, Avery Brundage, president of the IOC, said: "The Mexican Games are eight months away and many things which seem dramatic tonight will definitely lose their impetus in the months to come. "I am very satisfied that this issue which has been dragging on for so many years finally has been settled." But Count Jean de Beaumont, president of the French Olympic Committee and a member of tha IOC, was much more concerned. "There is a very strong possibility that African nations .and . Russia might boycott the Mexican Games as a result of the decision to let South Africa back into the Games. I'm very wor-. ried," he said. HERMON C. JONES Business Men'i lunnact Co 555 So.
