With Toirth by Pamela Swift ERWIN KOSTEDDE IN ACTION GenMflSiperstflf The most famous superstar in German football today--what we call soccer--is a wiry-haired, brown-eyed half-American of 28, Erwin Kostedde. His father is an unknown black G.I. Kostedde--the German equivalent of our Joe Namath in skill and notoriety- is the star of the' Offenbacher Kickers. When he was 20 he dropped out of big- time soccer for six months of wild living. "At the end of six months," he says, "I woke up without any money or friends." Fortunately, a football manager took charge of Kostedde, talked some common sense into him, made" him train rigorously. Today Kostedde is a member of the all-star German team, saves his money, will surely help defend the World Cup in 1977. Kostedde is not particularly popular with the German football fans; they regularly insult him. He drives a $13,000 Mercedes, collects expensive oil paintings, and lives in a handsome apartment. "People who call me a black bastard," he says, "are just ignorant or jealous. I don't resent them. I just try harder to earn their respect by playing as well as I possibly can. My playboy days are over." 12 After lying dormant for 10 years, skateboarding is experiencing a dramatic comeback this summer.

Medical societies immediately denounced them as "children cripplers.'' But skateboard technology has advanced and the boards are now being manufactured with urethane wheels, which take turns exceptionally wett. As more young people skateboard, sometimes known as sidewalk surfing, local communities are enacting ordinances to protect citizens on sidewalks and parking lots from "these road monsters." Before communities kill off this sport, skateboard enthusiasts might consider asking their local govern- SKATEBOARDS ARE BACK! mental body to set aside areas specifically intended for skateboarding. To date skateboarding is most popular on the West Coast and Florida. Skateboards range in price from $8 to $60. The safest models are equipped with urethane wheels.
