That is $112.50 for box seats and $85 for reseved grandstand tickets. Meantime, the Charlies were nearing the goal to win the International League pennant and a warm welcome home is being nlanned for the team when it apens its last series of the season Friday with Richmond.

Willi Daume, president of the O l y m p i c Organizing Committee, presented Lovell with a special gold medal, saying the astronaut's trip to the moon in Apollo 16 "was worth more than 10 gold medals."

Lovell told Daume the Olympic Games, like the U.S. space program are designed to bring nations together for peace. Daume said he arranged for the flags to be aboard the spacecraft through "former German professor" Wernher von Braun, German missile expert in World War II, now with :he U.S. space program.
