8C---July 16, 1972 Sunday Gaxette*Mail W«§t Vlr ( ini« Berlin Olympics Recalled; Did Hitler Snub Owens? By Hubert .1. Erb BERLIN (AP) -- Germany will stage its second Summer Olympic games beginning next month, the costly Munich extravaganza of .1972 certain to bring comparisons with Berlin in 1936. Then, Adolf Hitler took the salute of the world's athletes, American men won · heavily in track and field, Jesse Owens became a legend, the Nazis had Germany and sang, "Tomorrow the World." In Munich, Chancellor Willy Brandt will review'the athletes' entry, his Npbel Peace prize a contrast in itself. American men again are favored in track and field, with the girls joining them as the ones to beat in swimming. Absent in Berlin, ^the Russians are coming to Munich. And this time there will be two Germanies, Brandt's West Germany and Communist-controlled East .Germany. Outnumbered in population by better than three to one, the east Germans from around Berlin are favored to outdo their Western counterparts. Owens Invited And Owens will be an honored guest. The Munich organizing committee has invited Owens to attend the games because "he is one of the greatest Olympic athletes of all time." Heroes of other Games, including distance runner Emil Zatopek of Czechoslovakia, also have been invited. Owens' performances at Berlin still are talked about--36 years later -- particularly because of an apparent snub of the black sprinter by Hitler. Bob Lochner remembers Owens' winning three individual gold medals and a fourth in a relay. Lochner, then the young son of Associated Press Berlin Bureau Chief Louis Lochner, worked with newsmen covering the 1936 games. 'My job," Lochner said, "was to go to Hitler's box and see what notables were on hand. When they announced Owens' name for the victory ceremony, Hitler got up and left. It could not have been an accident. It must have been deliberate.'' Question Lingers Whether it was a deliberate snub is the question that lingers. A German "version says that Hitler had .been warned against greeting winning athletes by the Olympic committee after he embraced two German gold medalists. This version claims that Owens was the next winner, and when Hitler did not go forward, he acted as requested. "No one will probably ever know what went through Hitler's mind," Lochner said, "But he must have known his leaving when he did would cause a stir." Nor is the Owen's legend the only facet of the 1936 Games still being discussed. A runner named Kitei Son won the gruelling marathon for Japan, but he was a native Korean. After World War II, with Japan ousted from Korea, JESSE OWENS Honored Guest South Korea claimed Son's Olympic gold medal because Son had changed 1 his name to the Korean Kim Jong Son. There was no reaction lit Germany, so a South Korean parliamentarian took hammer and chisel in hand and went out to the Berlin Olympic Stadium and did the job himself. He replaced the world "Japan" with "Korea" behind Son's name on a soft sand stone plaque listing the 1936 winners. Quietly, the West Berlin city government restored "Japan" to the plaque, the letters new and white on stone otherwise grey and weathered by time. Rearrangement of territories on maps after the last World War also will send a .second German team to Munich. For the first time, there will be a separate East German National Anthem, although both East and West Germans will march behind flags with the same colors--black, red and 'gold replacing the black, white and red of Hitler's, and earlier imperial, itmes. Brandt said in a recent speech in the new Olympic stadium that the Munich games "will show the world a different Germany." Munich will offer a physical contrast to Berlin. Tht Alps form a backdrop to the south German city while Berlin is located in the center of the flat and sandy Prussian plain. Alps From Backdrop Munich also is known for a gemuetlichkeit of its own, a sort of south German hospitality compared to the spartan efficiency now adopted by the Berlin-centered East Germans, with perhaps sports representing its greatest success since becoming a separate state. The Munich Stadium is of radical .architectural design, a hanging tent effect that works as a semi-roof over the main .stadium seating 80,000. Berlin seated 100,000 in its main oval. In 1936, Berlin's vast Olympian sports complex was served by a subway system. Not to be- outdone, Munich has built a system of its own, the subway absorbing a big chunk of the "$650 million that West Germany will spend for the Munich games.

One unofficial estimate puts the cost of the Berlin games at a low $80 million. '. In Munich, athletes will live in a high rise apartment complex that later will be turned over for use by private'citizens. The Olympic village that housed the 1936 athletes now is used as a headquarters by the British forces in still-occupied Berlin, including exclusive use by the British of the indoor Olympic pool. A number of athletes who will compete in Munich have been " in Berlin the past few months training and getting acclimated for the latest edition of the games.

Gracious am attractive, yet tough, she states proudly that ^he is the promoter--male or female--with the longest record of regular weekly boxing shows. .Preparing to observe her 30th anniversary at the Olympic on July 27, she recalls those early days when being accepted by male promoters and matchmakers was difficult. 'Just One of Boys' "Our matchmaker, Babe McCoy, nearly threw a fit when he saw me in the box office for . the first time. He says, "There's no way that I'm going to work with that redhead!'

Asks No Quarter She asks no quarter and ves none in her negotiations. "There are very few managers who are not gentlemen, I've had arguments, of course, but I have never had a manager give me a rough time, say in the last 25 years. I had a few at first. I would absolutely not tolerate favoritism because I'm a woman. "I'm the only licensed promoter that has run this weekly, and I run it as a bust recalls how she got Gorgeous George started. "It was my idea originaDy, to ness. "This is my business," she continues, "the same as anyone else who baa a grocery store or a market or a professional man who's a doctor. I expect people to understand that I run this as a business. : But that, let's say, is the outer-shell. The inner shell I'm a real sucker for a loan or for an advance, or if a fighter comes in and wants money or someone's sick. I'm the first one they come to, not only in las Angeles, but from all over the country. They know I'm a soft touch. "But that has nothing to do with business. That's person- All Dressed Up Aileen had never seen a fight and it was four months after sne arrived at the Olympic that she got all dressed up, wearing an orchid, for a charity bout between Henry Armstrong and Juan Zurita. "ft was our first big house *ere. "We had been doing nothing. There were 9,000 people and it was very exciting, y "I *as really swished up that light. I went down to ringside banking that everybody was ooking at me, which they surely weren't, and just as I sat down Armstrong knocked out Zurita." Now she generally stays home and watches the bouts on television. Aileen, a widow with two sons, married Eaton in 1948. He died in 1966, but she had been calling the shots long before. Noting her participation in Mympic promotions, th* Call* ornia State Athletic Commission in 1957 recommended she ake out a promoter's license. McCoy lost his license that Jar when the commission in- estigated boxing in California. toCoy was accused of fixing ights and associating with hoodlums. Mrs. Eaton has strong feel- ngs against scandal in boxing, ius she still has warm feelings or McCpy. "I think Babe McCoy was without « doubt one of the finest matchmakers I've ·ver known," she says, Started Gorgeous George Wrestlers and boxers are not as rough outside the ring as they might seem, she adds, and give him a permanent and dye his hair and start him out as Gorgeous George. But a couple of times he would have everyone believe that he was something super human. You had to crack down on him and remind him that he was a very good wrestler, but just another wrestler with a gimmick." Her biggest thrills at the Olympic are title fights involving boxers she has brought along from preliminaries to main events. Included in that group is Mando Ramos. "He started with me as a preliminary boy and he had that charisma the minute he started. He was' drawing even whan he was- fighting four and six-rounders. And, at 20, he was the youngest lightweight in the world to win the championship That's really a thrill." JOKERS ARE WILD Fine for cards but not cars.
