The western motif was supplied at Tuesday's preview of the Olympic uniforms by the cowboy-style hats displayed ior male members of the team. The showing was held at a press luncheon of the American Institute of Men's and Boy's Wear which stressed that the designers of the Olympic uniforms had as their goal to provide the athletes with "an American flair."

The women's uniforms to be worn at the opening ceremonies of the Tokyo Olympiad consist of one-piece sleeveless dresses with a modified turtle-neck design, over which the ladies will wear shiny nylon - coated blue jackets trimmed in red and white. The clothing the Olympians will receive when they win places on the U.S. team go beyond just parade outfits.

For travel and leisure use. the women will receive outfits consisting of white sleeveless pullover blouses, skirts of Navy blue and matching blue blazer sweaters trimmed in white. And to top it all off, both the men and women will be provided with raincoats, in case the monsoon season arrives early in Tokyo. Cassius has someone shouting for him this time MIAMI BEACH. Fla. (UPO- For once, someone else did the shouting for Cassius Clay to day. Trainer Angclo Dundee phoned a protest to the Miami Beach Boxing Commission against use of the "three-knock down rule" in the Feb. 25th ti tic fight between loud-mouthed Cassius and heavyweight cham pion Sonny Liston. The three-knockdown rule provides that if a fighter floored three times in one round he automatically loses the match on a technical knockout. "That rule never has been used in any kind of a world ti tie fight anywhere before," An gelo told Chairman Morris Klein of the commission. "That rule has been waived for title fights everywhere." Klein announced Tuesday night that the triple-decking rule will be enforced in the big fight, along with the mandatory eight-count for any Fighter ris en quickly from a knockdown and the "continued count" for any knockdown just before the bell ending a round. Klein also disclosed that the ring will be 20 feet square "in side," that eight-ounce gloves will be worn and that the ringside physician may leap into the ring at any time and order the fight stopped if he deems either boxer in danger of seri ous injury. Trainer Dundee had no objections to the other rules but he was seething about the three knockdown proviso. "Cassius is only 22," he explained, "and has the bounce- back, the recuperative powers of youth. If necessary, he could climb off the floor a dozen times and still win the fight. He did get off the floor once to knock out Sonny Banks and once to knock out Henry Cooper." Gun Bow to get top weight ARCADIA (UPI) — Gedney Farms' winter racing star.
