NC . JGI DURHAM, N.C(UH)-The spirit of. detente between the United States and Russia figures to take a beating Friday and Saturday when the 12th annual USA-USSR track and field meet takes place at Duke University's Wallace Wade Stadium, The 1976 Olympics may still be two years away but the world's two greatest track already will be looking to pysch one another for some of the competitors here will surely wind, up representing their respective countries at the Montreal Summer Games, The United States, having won eight of the previous 11 encounters In the men's competition, will be looking to avenge both last year's loss In Minsk as well as a defeat at the hands of Russia earlier this year in an Indoor meet in Moscow. In contrast to the u.s. men's superiority during the 11 previous dual meets, the Russian women hold a commanding 10-1 lead over their American counterparts. The U.S. men's team will be far from full strength, however, and forced to get along without the services of such stars as mller Tony Waldrop, long distance ace Steve Prefontalne, Olympic long lump champion Randy Williams and Amateur Athletic Union champions Al Feuerbach (shot put), Dwight Stones (high jump), Jim Bolding (intermediate hurdles) and John Powell (discus). Waldrop, who ran 11 consecutive sub four-minute miles earlier this year and set an Indoor record of 3:55, and Williams didn't compete in the recent AAU meet because of a combination of nagging injuries and fatigue while Prefontalne, holder of the U.S. record of 12:51.4 for three miles, as off competing In Europe. The top two American finishers in each event in the AAU meet qualified to meet the Russians.

Despite the defections, the U.S. team still includes such talented performers as sprinters Steve Williams and Reggie Jones plus American half mile record holder Rick Wohlhuter and quarter mller Maurice Peoplxes. However, the squad Is certainly not as strong as it could have been. Williams, the two-time AAU 100 meter dash champion and co-holder of the world record of 9.9, and Jones, the NCAA 100- yard champion from Tennessee, expect to face Olympic champion Valery Borzov who swept both the 100 and 200 meter races at Munich in 1972. "Valery has shed his excess weight and is in full training again," said Russian coach Igor Ter-Ovanesyan about the Soviet speedball who slumped badly last year. "He wants to win at the European champion ships in Rome and the Durham meet will serve as a stepping stone." Borzov elected not to run against Williams on a head-to- head basis in last year's meet in Minsk but the San Diego State sophomore caught his Russian opponent on the anchor leg of the 400-meter relay and won going away. "I hope he (Boreov) runs the 100," said Williams after winning his second straight AAU title. "If I'm half as psyched as I was last year, I'll go under 9.9 and redeem myself as the world's fastest human." Wohlhuter already holds the world record of 1:44.1 for the 880-yard run and came within two-tenths of a second of matching the world mark for 800 meters with his AAU victory. The 25-year<«ld Insurance adjuster, who runs for the Chicago Track Clu, was timed in 1:43.9, good enough to smash Olympic champion Dave Wott le's American record of 1:44.3 but just missing the world mark of 1:43.7 set by Italy's Marcello Fiasconaro. Wohlhuter figures to go up against Yevgenly Aczhanov who finished second behind Wottle at Munich and beat Wohlhuter in last year's USA-USSR meet in the slow time of 1:49.2. "I know I'm capable of getting it soon," said Wohlhuter, referring to the world mark. "One way or another I'll get the record." And Duke's Wallace Wade Stadium, with its all new super fast Pro Turf track, might be just the place where Wohlhuter will catch his record.

InCokv ftrt/bvfWtob MOSCOW (UPI) - Look out Ivory Crockett. Look out Steve Williams. Russia's Valery Borzov is on the warpath. Borzov, the double Olympic sprint gold medalist, is back in full training and plans to upset his American rivals in the international dual meet at Durham, N.C, Friday and Saturday. "Valery has shed his excess weight and is in full training ?gain. He wants to win at the European championships in Rome and the Durham meet will serve as a stepping stone," said head Russian coach Igor Ter-Ovanesyan, the five-time Olympian who had many close duels with Ralph Boston in the 1960s when one or the other held the world record. Ter-Ovanesyan said Borzov showed his good Intentions by clocking :5.6 seconds to win the 60 meter dash in the European indoor championships at Gothenburg, "while he did -.10.2 for the 100 meters the other day on a cold, windy day in Tbilisi Jftr\ .-' "You've leased and ' ,or,me d a "d billed $0 lo bust niv racket Well, you're gonna get it back in spades DOWNTOWN THEATRE 220 HARRISON P.H. 785-8331 Features 2:00-4:30-7:00-9:30 CHERICAFFAR0 < h JOSEPH BRENNER ASSOCIATES INC ' A DERD Production COLOR by Oekna jgj CHERICAFFARO MM M JOSEPH BRENNER ASSOCIATES.

Ter-Ovanesyan, who speaks almost flawless English after his many visits abroad, said he was taking a young team to America because he was building toward overall success in the 1976 Olympics at Montreal. "I know they (America) have Tony Waldrop in the mile, while I've read about Crockett's world record 9 flat for the 100 yards. But overall the standard seems to have slipped in America. I think we can win in Durham, but why did they select Durham as the venue? Why not California?" Ter-Ovanesyan, who enjoys his new job as much as he did competition, said, "True, we won five gold medals in Munich —Borzov, Viktor Saneyev In the triple jump, Faina Melnik in the women's shot and Lyudmlla Bragina in the 1,500 meters— but overall our performance was poor. Too many of our people failed to make their respective finals. "My assistants and I are looking to improve the overall strength. We want to qualify three men for every event in Montreal, while we would hope our top people all make it through to the final." Looking at the United States' fall from grace, "the Ter," as he was known during his competitive days, said, "Ten years ago people like Boston, myself and high jumper Valery Brumel were the superstars. The U.S. had great depth and on that basis dominated Olympic track. "But today the other countries have caught up. Training, worldwide, is more professional, certainly more professional than that In America, and this is the reason why we now challenge the U.S. for supremacy." Ter-Ovanesyan expects to announce his team after the Pravda competition, June 20-22, which will feature international competition. Ter-Ovanesyan says he already has decided on 70 per cent of his team and It will include his active Olympic champions. He has high hopes for the likes of pole vaulter Vladimir Trafmnlnko, high jumper Vladimir Abramahof and a handful of other youngsters who'll be making their first trip to the U.S. THE ADMIRAL BENBOW proudly presents IN THE PLANTATION HOUSE RESTAURANT Mon. - Sat. $2.95 Daily Businessman's Sunday Buffet Luncheon 11:45-3:00 ADULTS $3.95 CHILDREN $1.95 IN THE ESCAPE HATCH LOUNGE; CREATION "Wehave meeting, and banquet facilities up to 500, Your Host is Tom Jones. 9600 W.
