It first has to be an approved nember of the individual sport federation. This is the hitch that kept the Russians out of the winter Olympic Ice hockey. Their entry to Join the International Ice Hockey Federation arrived too late to be considered in time for the Oslo games next month. Until now Soviet Russia has shunned all Olympic competition. Under the czars :the Russians 'made one brief Olympic Jaunt to Stockholm in 1912 and wound up without scoring a point. Strensth Unknown Just how strong their teams will be this year remains to be seen For prestige reasons it's a pretty safe bet the Russians who do come to Helsinki win be absolutely the best the Soviet can find. This means they should have * good deal to say in r deciding titles in boxing, basketball, weight llftinn soccer, menVs swimming and in men's and women's track and field. Above all should come the Russian soccer team. Soccer Is a tremendous spectator sport in Russia and since, at least in theory, all RU!- sian alhletes are amateurs, the No. 1 national team will qualify for Hel- Russlan soccer teams on their very limited excursions Into Western Europe have displayed brilliant football. If they can come close to dup- icatlng this form in the Olympics they will have to be regarded as the favorites. About the same thing goes for the Russian women In track and field.
