C5 TNI MESS DEMOCRAT, SATURDAY, JULY 1 3, 1 1 S. Africa ban-lift proposed USOC aiding Olympic Fest Associated Press - LOS ANGELES The U.S. i Olympic Festival took an Interna-' tfonal turn Friday when the head of the USOC said he favors lifting the ban against athletes who have competed In South Africa. : Robert Helmlck, USOC presi- dent, said the executive committee would discuss that matter when it meets today. Any recommendation that might result would require approval by the USOC's board of directors. "It would seem to me that at our executive committee meeting this week, the United States Olympic Committee should evaluate that .rule and put that behind us," Helmick said at a kickoff news conference for the Festival. "On one side, the athlete is violating the rules. On the other side, it's up to sport to try to get redemption and to move forward and allow everyone to participate." The opening ceremonies included a 600-piece marching band and an appearance by former President Reagan on Friday. Figure skating, basketball, swimming and boxing all start today. Helmick noted the USOC only has jurisdiction on U.S. entries into the Olympic Festival, Pan American Games, World University Games and the Olympics. Any national governing bodies would have to make their own decisions. The suspensions were handed down against three coaches and 14 track -and field athletes who took part In a four-meet tour of South Africa in October 1988. The suspensions ranged from two to six years for the athletes, and eight to 12 years for coaches. The turnaround comes in the wake of the International Olympic Committee's decision Tuesday to recognize the interim National Olympic Committee of South Africa, provided its international teams move toward complete integration. "I would say we're in a period of time where everyone is looking at each other and it's very Important to study each action from here on out," Helmick said. Meanwhile, Helmick disclosed Friday that the USOC had given $300,000 to the Olympic Festival's organizing committee. It's part of a $1 million, interest-free bridge loan being forwarded against ticket revenue. "We are helping them to ensure the cash flow, to ensure the festival happens," Helmick said. He said that in December, the USOC received a report from one of its committees saying there could be problems with this festival because of the size of the city, ticket sales projections and other factors. In January, he said, "we made the corporate decision that there will be a Los Angeles Olympic Festival." "The United States Olympic Committee Is committed to making this a successful Olympic Festival," Ell Primrose-Smith, head of the festival organizing committee, said the $1 million in loans was secured to overcome a "temporary cashflow situation." She said It was due in part to the fact the venues wanted all expenses paid for In advance. This Is the first time the festival has been held in such a large city. With Its emphasis on being a developmental tool and not so much a showcase for America's top athletes, there have been concerns about how it will be received. Primrose-Smith was upbeat Friday, just hours before opening ceremonies were to be held at Dodger Stadium. She said ticket sales had surged in the past three days, and that she expected a good number of walk-up sales during the nine days of competition. "This town proved in 1984 (during the Olympics) that there is a tremendous Interest in walk-up sales," she said. "We are not designed to make money. We are designed to cover our expenses, and we fully expect to cover our expenses," she said. SportsChannel, PSN merge SportsChannel Bay Area and Pacific Sports Network (PSN) merged on Friday, giving Bay Area sports aficionados one all-inclusive sports network. ., The result of the merger is SportsChannel Pacific, which will offer subscribers the chance to view games of the San Francisco Giants, Oakland A's, Golden State Warriors, and collegiate events from Cal and Stanford and the Big West and West Coast conferences. SportsChannel Pacific will operate a service that offers basic and premium programming on a single channel. Cal, Stanford and other colle- EMPIRE giate sports will be available as part of the basic level of services. The Giants, A's and Warriors will be offered as a pay-per-view premium selection. The agreement, which took nearly four months to iron out, came about because both SportsChannel and Pacific Sports Networks were experiencing financial problems by dividing the market. The merger is expected to provide SportsChannel Pacific with 1.7 million subscribers. PSN was available to more than 80 percent of the Bay Area's cable audience but was hurt because SportsChannel Bay Area had the rights to the Giants and A's broadcasts, for which it charged as much as $9.95 a month. The merger is expected to be complete, and programming on the air, in the fall. No hitter Andrew Levine pitched a no-hitter and struck out 17 batters in a six-inning game, as Kelsevyille de-. feated Southshore 5-0 in a District 35 majors all-star baseball game at Kelseyville on Friday. Levine walked one, and one Southshore runner reached base on an error. I'MUjAiiiiM.'inrani Solano County Fair Handicap Saturday, July 13. Clear and fast. Post time 12:30 p.m. FIRST.

In ' addition, ABC reported that in one 10-year period, 51 children were killed playing youth baseball. The morning line Judging by the way he swings a bat, it's a good thing W.P. Kinsella can write about baseball and dreams. Kinsella, whose novel "Shoeless Joe" inspired the movie "Field of Dreams," came to the movie-set field at Dyersville, Iowa. He never played the game as a child, and it showed. Kinsella took some swings with a group of local players decked out in old Chicago White Sox uniforms. After whiffing a couple of pitches and dribbling a , weak grounder to the pitcher, Kinsella finally did crack a sharp liner to left. He quit while ahead. Quotable "I think we are better players than what we are shooting When we complain, we're bitching, but when the men do it, then it must be hard. We don't get on national television much. Then when we get on and are playing under severe conditions, people see us and say women can't play. It's hard." Betsy King on the difficult Colonial Country Club Course in Fort Worth, Texas, site of the U.S. Women's Open tournament. Press Democrat news services Calumet's Chapter 11 filing hurts owner Bertha Wright Associated Press LEXINGTON, Ky. The woman who is the last link to the glory days of Calumet Farm believes she has let her family down as the home of many famous thoroughbreds seeks protection from creditors. "It's just sad," Bertha Wright said after the historic farm filed a Chapter 11 petition to reorganize under the protection of bankruptcy court. "I feel like I let the Wrights down." Calumet listed liabilities of $118 million in its Chapter 11 petition Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. A reorganization petition also was filed by Calumet-Gussin No. 1, a partnership that holds most of the farm's broodmares, listing $16.98 million in liabilities. Bertha Wright was married in 1943 to Warren Wright Jr., the grandson of the man who founded Calumet Farm in 1924. When he died in 1978, he left his interest in the farm in a trust to her. Four years later his mother, Lucille Wright Markey, died, and the farm went to Bertha Wright and her four children. Mrs. Wright said she had not been "fit" to run the farm. "I'm the last of the four," she said. "You know, the mother and father and Warren and me and I feel badly that I can't do any better than take advice from those who would advise me." 'It's just sad ... I feel like I let the Wrights down." CALUMET'S BERTHA WRIGHT Mrs. Wright said she had been more involved with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. "That's what I was concentrating on, raising a family," she said. "I was never in a position to run it." John T. Ward Jr., who owns a thoroughbred operation in Paris, Ky., was named president and chief operating officer of Calumet in April to help straighten out the numerous financial entanglements. "There was just no more cash, nobody else to loan us any money and the lawsuits were just taking all our time," he said in testimony at a preliminary hearing Thursday. He said it took 10 days to get the farm's books in order. Since March, 10 lawsuits totaling $27 million have been filed against the farm. Ward said the farm's expenses "were very excessive. We cut those monthly expenses just about in half without hifrting the operation of Calumet whatsoever." He said expenses now run about $270,000 a month, including a weekly payroll of about $33,000. Judge Joe Lee granted Calumet permission to borrow up to $350,000 from First City National Bank of Houston to operate until July 26, when another hearing is scheduled. Ward said the farm would continue in a normal fashion. "Everybody on the farm is secure in their jobs," he said. "We'll go ahead and operate as a commercial activity." The farm was allowed by the court to sell nine horses next week at the Keeneland Selected Yearling Sale. The farm, 880 acres lined with white fences and dotted with white barns trimmed in red, is for sale. Ward said the bankruptcy would give management time "to search for a new buyer who can come in and protect the greatest single horse farm in the world." If a buyer isn't found in four to six months, he said it could be sold in parcels. : "We'll have a very hard business decision to make." Calumet, which gained its name in 1922 from the Calumet Baking Powder Co., has been home to a record eight Kentucky Derby winners.
