Cofi ArtJJClCS $Une0 Thurs., Mar. 6, 1980-Pltl I 25 New Tack Reported on Olympic Funding City Puts Aside Bid for U.S. Money to Explore Private Gifts, Sources Say By KENNETH REICH Tlm Pmicl Writer Mayor Tom Bradley's long effort to solicit federal funds to build or refurbish facilities for the 1984 Olympics has been put on the back burner pending a full exploration of the opportunities for private funding, knowledgeable sources said Wednesday. At the same time, the private Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee has informed the mayor it will give him the right of final approval of sites for the privately funded facilities it may obtain. This apparently means Bradley will have the ability, if he wishes, to ensure that most such facilities for swimming, cycling, rowing, archery, shooting and yachting go in or close to the city limits of Los Angeles, where he has wanted them all along. Word of these developments followed a private meeting Tuesday between Bradley and Peter V. Ueberroth, president of the Los Angeles Olympics. They came just eight days after a ranking White House aide, Jack B. Watson Jr., repeated publicly that the White House had told Bradley that all possible private Olympic assistance ought to be solicited before he asks the federal government for any of the up to $141.5 million he has said the city needs. Bradley has continued to deny getting any such message from Watson and statements from the mayor and his Olympics liaison, Deputy Mayor Ray Remy, stopped short of admitting the back-burner status of their funding request, although Remy's statement implied it. Remy, in an interview, made these four points: 1 He knows of "no reason why we would not continue to look at federal funding." 2 He is going to Washington, D.C., next week for a variety of tasks for the city and, while there, will "explore" the federal funding situation regarding the Olympics with Carter Administration's officials. 3 He expects to find that the climate is not good for such funding requests now, in view of the Administration's push for major reductions of expenditures to balance the federal budget. 4 It is "preferable" for the private Olympic Committee to get all the funds needed privately. High-ranking committee officials, speaking on a background bases, said this language, convoluted as it might be, shows that the federal funding request indeed is on the back burner. Bradley's press secretary, Tom Sullivan, when told this conclusion would be published, registered no objection. Sullivan did say, however, that it should be made clear that the mayor's policy on federal funding has not been adopted in the conversation with Ueberroth in exchange for being given the right of final site approval of privately funded facilities. He said there has been no quid pro quo in that conversation. Ueberroth, who first reported his conversation with Bradley at a Coro Foundation awards dinner at the Beverly Wilshire on Tuesday night, said Wednesday that it is only right that the mayor should have such fiscal approval rights. "It's his judgment which is most important on the long-range value to the community of any private venue (Olympic facility) that we develop," the Olympics president told The Times. He added that a facility, such as a swimming stadium, will be used only a few days for the 1984 Games but will then be used by the community for many years, and that Bradley is in a far better position than the Olympic Committee to judge where it should go. The potential private sponsors, or most of them, wouldn't care much anyway, he indicated. There have been reports in recent weeks that the Olympic Committee is negotiating with private interests to build a swimming and diving stadium at USC. This would have the virtue, from Bradley's point of view, of being in the South Los Angeles community. The mayor has publicy favored nearby Los Angeles Southwest College for the swimming facility. Even though Ueberroth expressed renewed confidence Wednesday that private funding will be obtained for all required new facilities with the 10-month period he set last Jan. 19, two Bradley associates who are members of the Olympic Committee, Stephen Reinhardt and Maureen Kindel, expressed skepticism Tuesday night that private funding will be forthcoming. They said they believe private funding prospects have been exaggerated. The Olympic Committee chairman, Paul Ziffren, said Wednesday, "There is a very good chance we can get private funding." Bodies of 2 Sisters Found in Apartment The nude bodies of two sisters apparently murdered were found by their brother Wednesday morning in the bedroom of an apartment in the Palms area of West Los Angeles. Venice Division detectives said James Cruse became concerned after he had not heard from his sisters for several days and went to the apartment in the 3200 block of Overland Avenue to investigate. Police said the apartment was rented to Beverly Cruse, 25, an employee at USC and a part-time undergraduate student there. Her sister, Debra, 22, a receptionist at Los Angeles radio station KFI, apparently had been visiting at the time of their deaths. Investigators said both young women had been murdered, but there were no obvious wounds on their bodies, which were decomposing. Autopsies were scheduled. Stan Brown, a newscaster at KFI, said Debra worked at the station part time and had been hired through a temporary help service. "She seemed to be a pleasant young lady," Brown said. "Pleasant and full of life." Another station employee said Debra failed to show up for work on Monday and Tuesday mornings. "She used to work right here where I'm sitting," the employee said. "It's scary." DECORATE WITH MIRROR MAGIC!
