Terminal competitive event of Olympics brought hundreds of Norwegians, waving flags, singing the national anthem and carrying their sports hero on their shoulders. (UP! Telephoto) Olympic Games U.S. they winter lacked athletes say preparation By HENRY W. THORNBERRY gcther for one Olympic while UPI Sports Writer ihc Russians, Czechs and INNSBRUCK, Austria (UPI) Swedes have all had their —The men and women from the United States who wound up as also-rans in the 1964 Winter Olympics today blamed their performances on a lack of preparation. In essence, Uncle Sara's alh letes and coaches agreed they made a molehill effort in preparing for this mountain of world snow sports. They are not cry babies, these lean and lanky men and husky girls from the states. However, they regretted the fact they will return home with only six medals while the Soviet Un ion won the unofficial team championship for the third con secutive time by bagging 25, in eluding 11 gold medals. Kenneth L. (Tug) Wilson of Chicago, the president of the U.S. Olympic Committee, summed up the feelings of the Yanks following Sunday's closing ceremonies "The thing is that people may expect too much from us," said Wilson, a tall, gray haired man who chews this thoughts carefully but speaks crisply. Cites Handicaps "Any great nation is expected to excel in everything and the fact is that we're not a win ter sports nation," he added. "One of the biggest handicaps we have is that after one of our athletes has had one shot at the Olympics he usually has to give it up and start earning a living, cither as a professional athlete or in some other field. "Take our hockey team for instance. We have trouble getting enough good players to- Ralston wins invitational PALM DESERT (UPI)-Tennis star Dennis Ralston, ranked as the No. 1 men's tennis player in Southern California last year, won the 12th annual Desert Invitational tennis tournament Sunday by beating Arthur Ashe 6-3, 6-3.

Bill Disney, a small, wiry man of 31 who left his wife, his three children and his job back in Rosemead, Calif., to race on the U.S. speed skating team, bemoaned the lack of facilities in the states to train teams for the Winter Olympics. "Year after year we complain about this but our plea falls on deaf ears," said Disney. "All U.S. officialdom docs is wring its hands every time the Russians win another gold medal — especially in speed skatins. Tracks Are Scarce continued. "You can imagine how our hearts bleed for poor Lidia Skoblikova," he said, referring to the blonde Russian who won four gold medals in speed skating here. "She said she had natural ice to skate on only five months in the year. And Moscow has only eight Olympic- sized rinks. "We'd give our right arms for this kind of opportunity. But let's face it. The Soviet Union has made a political thing out of athletics and has been capitalizing on it. Speed skater Terry McDer mott, the man from Bunny's Barber Shop at Bay City, .Mich., won the lone U.S. gold medal. But the big U.S. break- Yogi Berra made 12 banquets in 10 days and said he was going to chuck it and get back to baseball . . . before the three pounds he tacked on his middle gets any bigger. Sandy Koufax busy on the trail that took him within 24 hours from Lethbridge, Alberta, to Calgary to Butte, Mont., to Denver to New York, has only two more social engagements before he sinks into hibernation. ... Bo Wininger, long active on the golf trail, is taking bis new duties as head pro at the Desert Inn (Las Vegas) seriously. He has cut tournament participation to a couple or three major events. . . . The school teaching profession is taking it on the chin. Lamar Hunt married a school teacher to become housewife to his millions. Pat Summerall, the ex- New York Giant placekicker, quit his high school job in New York. Dick Radatz, the monster who cows American League batters for the Boston Red Sox, has left the classroom between seasons to conduct a nightly radio show in the Hub. . This is what encourages the American Football League: in 1962, the Dallas Texans drew 155,000 people, who paid $350, 000; in 1963, they moved to Kansas City and drew 150,000, but they paid $800,000 . . which made the Chiefs one of four teams in the league that broke even. . . . Stan Musial laughs that his batting average has climbed 10 points a month since he retired last fall. . . he sees hope of reaching .400. But Dave Grote, the National League publicitor, believes Dizzy Dean has the best discription for retired heroes: "The longer they's away, the better they was."

The big game around western North Carolina, his native sector, is something called "slow pitch" — an offshoot of Softball in which they use a big melon, and the pitcher has to throw it with an arc like Rip Sewell's old blooper ball. Jimmy calls it punkin ball and says he played it first and that the best teams in the world both came from McAden ville, N.C., a town of 1,000 — they finished one-two in the na tional tournament this year, Pete Ward, the young Chicago White Sox third baseman, also played "slow pitch" in Ore gon, but called it "mush ball.' The greatest player in basket ball today is Oscar Robertson Eddie Donovan, the coach of the New York Knicks, calls him "the perfect machine — I don't see how he could be any bet ter." . . . but it doesn't quite satisfy Oscar.

Gaining In Popularity The Yanks took four of the 18 ski medals.

Bob B c a 11 i c, the blond, tanned U.S. coach was the man most responsible for the sue cess of the Yank skiers. Breaking tradition, Beattie argued and won permission and facilities for training his down hillers and slalom skiers six months before the games. He bulldogged the traditional Alpine powers into giving his men their first good scedings in history. "We had the strongest team we ever brought to the Olympics," Beattie said. "We leave with our heads up. How could we have been failures where we have never succeeded in Al pine skiing before? And we aren't going to quit now, go home and rest on our medals.
