If Cortina provides a basis : for judgment, five million will I hardly get Squaw Valley off to ; more than a good start. Cortina started off with hotels, a bob run and a tradition as a fine sport? resort, yet still spent tiir more than that. ! The games that ended here in j solemn ceremonies were won by Soviet Russia.

Dick Rahol of Iron Mountain, Mich., made the best jump by an American, 255 feet 10 inches, but fell and got only »8 points for this and his other jump of 244-5. He was 51st. .

NEW YORK I/PI—Unusual fellow, this Ron Delany. He runs only to win, paying no heed to records, stop watches, pro- moetrs or pacemakers.
