The only real threat In the rest of the field is Ignace Hcinrlch of France, who finished second to Mathias in 1948. Heinrich has 3,855 points to Mathias' 4,367.

Rtissia, France and Argentina all showed powerful quintets in irst round victories yesterday vhile the giant United Slates crew seemed sluggish and off form. With the chips down, however, the U.

The losers were Hungary, Bulgaria, Philllpplnes, Cuba, Canada, Egypt, Czechoslovakia and Finland. But since basketball Is using a modified round robin competition to determine the winner, yesterday's losers still are In the running.
