It was another bad day for the Americans and a booming one for the Russians, who swept to six of seven canoeing and kayak titles and watched Ludmila Bragina race to a . The Americans hoped to get some consolation later in the evening in the showdown battle against Russia for the basketball championship. The United States never has lost an Olympic basketball game. With only one full day of competition remaining, the Russians had zoomed ahead of the United States in the gold medal race and also forged in front for the first time in the over-all total.

Hans Baumgartner of West Germany grabbed the silver with 26-10 and Arnie Robinson of San Diego, Calif, took the bronze with 26-4'/4. Tenseness Unwarranted There was a moment of tension when the two American blacks, with the West German, strode to the victory podium. But the tenseness of the packed Olympic Stadium crowd of 84,000 was unwarranted. Wiliams and Robinson stood there, erect, facing the flag, one with hands folded in front of him ond the other in back, proudly wearing the medals hung around their shoulders by Doug Rcby, an American member of the Internationaol Olympic Committee. They were the first American blacks to take the victory stand since Vince Mahohews of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Wayne Collett of Los Angeles, had been banished from all future Olympic competion for what was described as "disgusting" conduct after finishing first and second in the 400-meter race Thursday. Neither had faced the flag during the playing of the Na- :ional Anthem. The U.S. Olympic Committee asked for a review of the action by the IOC Executive Board but Roby. American member of the IOC, said earlier in the day. The IOC action is final and irrevocable." ! Avery Brundage, president of| the International Olympic Com-- mittee, called the behavior of the two American athletes in net facing the flag "reprehensible and not in character with Olympic ethics." Rumors of Walkout Apprehension in some quarters that the ejection of Matthews and Collett might trigger a walkout of U.S. blacks also proved 1 unfounded although the United States was unable to muster four quarter-milers for :he 1,600-meter relay and had to default in qualifying trials. With Matthews and Collett out, and world 440 record-holder John Smith hobbled by a :high injury, there were not enough men to run. The 400-meter relay team ol Larry Black, Robert Taylor, Gerald Tinker and Eddie Hart, all black, showed up and qualified easily in 38.% seconds.
