(AP Wirephoto) WALKOUT Protesting Black Athletes Cast Cloud Over Olympics By Will Grtaiky MUNICH r~ Scores of protesting black athletes, including 18 Americans, walked out on a preliminary track and field meet Saturday and threw an ominous cloud over the sum mer Olympic Games, scheduled to open here next Saturday. Political bickering, the imposition of gags on athletes and sisto of mixed black and white charges of violation of human rights, sent discordant notes ringing through this gay, pleasant Bavarian capital as final preparations were made for the international sports spectacle joint statement, saying, "W dedicated to good will among nations. The boycott occurred at a pre-Qlympic event scheduled for the small Alpine community veloping protest against the presence of white-ruled . Rbo° desia in the Games. The athletes boarded buses at the Olympic village for the 85- mile ride to the communitj south of Munich, where crowd of 2,000 spectators waited in damp, raw weather. Upon arrival, the African and sympathetic nations dramati cally announced they would not tab the field with the Rhodesians, although the latter con- athletes.

(AP) - Australian Bruce Devlin birdied the final hole--after a national television coverage had ended-and opened up a two-stroke lead Saturday after the third round of the $200,000 USI Golf Classic. Devlin, who scored his seventh tour triumph in the Houston Open earlier this year, had a 54-hole total of 206, 10 under par on the 7,212-yard Pleasant Valley Country Club course. Only rookie John Mahaffey and Lee Elder, one of the pro tour's few blacks, were abb to keep the skinny Australian in sight. They were tied for second at 208. Mahaffey carded a 70 Saturday while Elder shot a 71 with a bogey on the 17th hole. Encounter Disaster Two other would-be challengers encountered doubley-bogey Jiun disaster down the stretch. Tom- w* my Aaron made a seven on the par five final hole for a 74 and 210. And Hale Irwin, who shared the 36-hole lead with Aaron, blew to a 41 on the back nine for a 76-212. Devlin carded a 09 for the day. Lee Trevino, the British Open champion and pre-tournamenl favorite here, shot himself put of it.

Clifford Buck, p r e s i d e n By A. L. Hardman Coming from behind in each game, the Charleston Charlie* swept a double bill with the Peninsula Whips Saturday night at Watt Powell Park, winning each game by a 5-4 score, and bounced back into the International League lead. Louisville's 4-1 loss to Toledo enabled the Charlies to overtake the Colonels, who have held onto the lead since July 24, when they took it from the Charlies. Charlie Howard, who hasn't played since July 23 when he injured his shoulder, knocked in two of the runs in the nightcap to give Gene Garber the victory, although the Charleston ace didn't have one of bis better games. It was Howard's single in the seventh that did the trick. With one out Phil Bushman easily iegged out a bunt single--his fifth hit of the evening--and Chuck Goggin followed with a "ine single into center. Howard then lined a hit over short to score Bushman and i was all over. A pair of home runs bedeviled farber in his struggle for his 13th victory.

COPENHAGEN (AP) - Power-punching Carlos Monzon of Argentina, unbeaten in eight years, retained his world middleweight championship Saturday night, knocking out Tom Bogs of Denmark with a smashing right in the fifth round of their scheduled 15- round fight. The end came after Monzon had floored Bogs for the third time in the fifth round. After each of the first two knockdowns, Bogs got up and took the count standing up. But after he went down for the third time, English referee Harry Gibbs stopped the fight and ruled a knockout. The victory was Monzon's 78th--and 55th knockout--in his 91-fight career. He has lost only three--the last a 10-round decision to Alberto Massi--on Oct. 9, 1964--boxed nine draws and had one no-decision. 11 Straight Knockouts It was the fifth successful defense of the 160-pound title for Monzon since he won the championship on a 12th-round knockout over Italy's Nino Benvenuti on Nov. 7, 1970. He has stopped every opponent in his title defenses and now has a string of 11 consecutive knockouts. The 30-year-old Monzon, who was guaranteed S125.000 for the fight in Copenhagen's 15,000- s e a t Idraetspark Stadium, weighed 159 pounds. Bogs, seeking to become Denmark's first world boxing c h a m p i o n , weighed 159H pounds. Bogs, former European mid- dtewwight and light heavy- weight champion, suffered his fifth loss in 69 pro fights. Before the fight, he said he did not think he could knock out the muscular Monzon. But he added: "I don't think he can knock me out, either."
