THE GETTYSBURG TIMES. THURSDAY. MAY 22.198U PACK SEVENTEEN" Soviet Officials Looking For Teams mare than 41 countries boycotting the OKtnpics. the Soviet Union weds all the teams it CM aet. TnaTs why. it would seem. Soviet officials have made a rather unique gesture to Culuotoas Olympic team. la an apparent move tu save what's left of their scaled- dmm (Hympics. Soviet officials will flv the Cbtumbiaa leiHi. to Moscuw for the Sumtoer Games. Meanwhile. Lord KUlanin. president of the International Olympic Committee * lUCi. said it would praoablv But be uatil Tuesday before he gets "a full report from ecww" regarding exactly how many countries will attend the Games. Although the deadline for entries is Saturday. Killanin said: "I would be ready lo extend the deadline io help any national Olympic (·umniittras which are late in inakiui their decisions." Killanin was back hume in Dublin. Ireland, following a trip to both the Soviet L'niuii and the United Slates, where he talked with the heads of both countries in an attempt to take politics out of the Games. Killanin said Wednesday he had loM Soviet President Brezhnev that the awarding of the Summer Games to Moscow was nut a stamp of approval for the Soviet Union's policies, as slated in the handbook for Communist activists and sent to Soviet embassies all over the world. Following Carter's call to boycott the Games because of the Soviet's military presence in Afghanistan. *» countries -- according to an Associated Press count -- have decided not to send teams to Russia. Killanin said the implacable Brezhnev showed no emotion when he warned him that only 50 or so countries might be represented in Moscow as a result of Russia's military action. In another development, the U.S. Congress was asked Wednesday to strike special gold medals for America's Olympic athletes. Sens. Gary Han. CKoIu., and Ted Stevens. R-Alaska. introduced legislation to strike tnO gold medals to honor the athletes "who. on tin; basis of outstanding performance. have earned places on the 1WU Olympics team." Even though the U.S. Olympic Committee voted April 12 to support President Carter's boycott call, trials are being held to select a full team. Penske Not Content To Be Second Best INDIANAPOLIS (APi -The work never ends if vou are seeking perfection. And that is exactlv the quest of singleminded Roger Penske. an auto racing workaholic and -- nut by coincidence -- a very successful businessman: Penske s theory is. "Second place is for losers." The gray-haired dynamo of racing also says. "To be successful, you must find very good people and get them to working together." Penske's three entries in Sunday's Indianapolis 500 -defending champion Rick Mears and former champions Bobby Unser and Mario Andretti -- fit right in .with that thought. They, along with the rest of the 33 qualifiers for the auto racing classic were to take their final turns around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway track today during a two-hour testing session. The so-called "carburetkm testing" is the only chance the week between the end of time trials and the race to get on the track and work on the cars' race day setups. As usual. Penske was on hand to oversee the preparations of all three of his racers. "Roger just has an uncanny knack for picking top people." Andretti noted. "He expects 100 .percent from everyone, including himself, and that's why he's such a successful businessman. He's also very, very organized." ~ The 42-year-old Penske simply will not settle fur anything less than No.-l. He proved that two years ago by Firing driver Tom Sneva. who had set the all- time qualifying record at the Speedway and Finished second in the Indy 500 while driving for the Penske Racing Team both in 1877 and 1978. Penske came here last year with Unser and the youthful Mears as his drivers. Unser started fourth and ' finished fifth, while Mears -who replaced Sneva on the Penske payroll -- again proved Penske's racing acumen by winning both the pole and the race. Now. Andretti. who missed last year's Indianapolis race due to a Formula One commitment, has again added his impressive credentials to the Penske team. Txvo weeks ago. on the First day of qualifying for the $1 million race. Andretti. Unser ' and Mears placed their ncarlv identical Penske- desighed and built PCS ground effects racers on the First two rows of the 11-row race grid.

CBS Rooting For Sixth Game In NHL Playoffs ond year in a ional Hockey Writer For the second row. the Nati League's golden opportunity lo showcase Ms Stanley Cup final game on network television might be canceled because one team is too good. If the New York Islanders ·in tonight w Philadelphia. they wiU take the Cup 4-1. CBS is rooting for the Flyers to extend the series to a sixth game, which the network would televise live Saturday at 2 p-m. EDT. CBS has agreed to pay $37M.WW to broadcast the sixth game. In return, the NHL happily moved the starting time from 8 p.m. KDT and gave CBS the inside position for next year's Stan- Icy Cup. Coach Chuck Knox won Western Division-lHk-s in the National Conference of the National Football League in each of his first five years as skipper of the Los Angeles Rams. Last year. CBS bid$4M.«n» for the seventh game of the final series between Montreal and the New York Rangers but tat out lo ABC's offer of $42a.m It all became academic when the Oanadiens won four straight games to take the aeries 4-1. And if there is a sixth game. CBS wants it to be a tense, exhilarating, high- scoring affair -- with all of it happening in regulation time. CBS has allotted three hours to hockey, dropping » minutes of its planned coverage of the Memorial Golf Tournament. Historically, more fans and sponsors prefer athletes who hit white balls than the ones who smack around black pucks and each other. Ttiat's w hy golfs all over tin- tube, but tiuckey has no network TV. CBS w i l l stick with the sixth game to conclusion and pray the Islanders win it t end" the series. CBS won't show the seventh game, scheduled for 8 p.m. TIMS dav. nor will rival networks NBC and ABC. for that matter, as they opt for reruns over rebounds, t In case you forgot, ratings -- and the XML had terrible ones during previous stints on the networks -- rule the roost in TV land.) By buying Game 6 and nut Game 7. CBS runs the risk of being embarrassed. It's bad business to peak an audience's curiosity and interest and not solve the mystery, catch the bad guy or crown the champion. You don't show half of Gone With the Wind" and nut let the viewer , see Rhett Butler walk out vtil sweet Scarlett. But Frank Smith, president of CBS Sports, felt thin the game was an important event by itself. After all. it could be the championship game of one of the four major professional team sports. So. when CBS' request to the NHL to shift its seventh game to a weekend afternoon was turned down, the network decided to buy the best game available. It might seem unusual that the NHL. which hasnt been seen on network TV since 11*75 on NBC. didn't cater to CBS. But the league has managed without a natmual network for five years and h did have the syndicated Hughes Sports Neiuork tele- vising the entire final round to most major U.S. markets Even though CBS won't make money, the network gets points for gambling on the sixth game. It's a prestige item and could be CBS" third title guuie of the t»p four pro team spurts i If CBS keeps this up. we might call it the "Bruadcas tor of Champions." although all the events weren't given championship treatment, indicating their relative value U CBS and its viewers 'AGWA IGLERVILLE HOMEUTE ST-100 Gasoline- Powered String Trimmer Stiff I Utility Pmphr Rugged design uses reinforced thermoplastic for pump body, volute - and impeller to help resist impact .. .wear.. .and corrosion.
