There were divisions among the Africans themselves, and suspense gripped the Olympic stadium as teams marched in for the opening ceremony. A missing place symbolized an eleventh-hour decision to boycott the competition because New Zealand, accused of coddling the segregationist South African government, would not withdraw its team as the Africans demanded. Most of the African athletes reacted with stoicism to the pull-out decisions, but a few, bucking possible reprisals at home, indicated they were disgusted by their governments actions. Iraq Join* The 22 African teams--joined by Iraq in a gesture of solidarity--were out of the Games in a movement that gathered momentum Saturday morning. The teams to leave Saturday, joining Tanzania. Somalia, Madagascar,' Mauritius. Gambia and Nigeria, which had announced previously they would not participate, were: Algeria, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, the Congo Republic, Chad, Egypt, Central African Republic. Gabon, Ghana, Libya, Niger, Sudan, Togo, Upper Volta and Zambia. Zaire and Malawi were also out of the Games, but their decisions were made known weeks ago and were related to their athletes not coming up to Olympic levels, rather than the New Zealand dispute. With Taiwan added, this made a total of 26 countries originally planning to take 'part in the Games that did hot join the opening ceremonies. " -·· It meant that the Games would go on without the l.SOOraeter duel between Filbert Bayi of Tanzania and John Walker of New Zealand, and such athletes ans John Akii-Bua of Uganda, the. defending champion in the 400-meter hurdles. · GAMES Athletes to Start Competition Today -APWireDhoto Olympic Swimmer Gary Hall Carries U.S. Flag .

Among the gymnastic competitors will be Nadia Comeneci, the- spectacular Rumanian who will be aiming for the women's individual gold medal. By Fraak Litiky New \ork Timet :\W» Service MONTREAL-The Games of the XXI Olympaid began Saturday with elaborate opening ceremonies. The start of the games begin today with competition in 14 of the 23 Olympic sports. During the day, there will be two gold medals awarded in swimming, one in shooting (free pistol), one in cycling (100-kilometer time trial) and one in weight lifting (144.5-pound class). The United States is expected to score heavily in the two swimming finals and hopes for a medal in pistol shooting. Compulsory gymnastics exercises for men and women will run from 8:30 a.m. to 10:45 p.m. in the Forum, the home of the hockey Canadiens. There is tremendous interest here in gymnastics, especially women's gymnastics. That interest was heightened two nights ago when Olga Korbut of the Soviet Union, the darling of the 1972 Olympics .at Munich, fell on her dismount during a workout on the balance beam. * * * BASKETBALL will have six games, including the United States against a strong team from Italy. The Americans, despite the lack of a dominating center, are favored to regain the gold medal they lost to the Russians in a controversial final in 1972. There will be six games in water polo, six in team handball, four in soccer, four in field hockey and four in-volleyball. There will be preliminary competition in rowing and boxing. The modern pentathlon will start with riding, the first of its five events. Swimming has been a traditional American stronghold in the Olympics. Since 1896, when swimming was part of the first modern Olympics, American men have won 63 of the 124 gold medals and American women 47 of 84. The American men are as good as ever. In a news conference. Dr. Jim Counsilman of Indiana University, their coach, said he hoped for more than half of the 13 gold medals. Privately, he thinks 10 of 13 is more accurate. The American women won eight of 14 gold medals In 1972. In 1973, the Eait German women won almost everything in the Lowe's Annual What 1 s mote American than shopping lor real value?
