Warning that "Russia is out to get us in the Olympics," Col. Harry D. Henshcl pointed out "this is a challenge to our colleges to co-operate in helping us field the strongest possible team" for the basketball^ competition at Melbourne next year. The U.S. court team will consist of players from the Armed Forces and the AAU and college ranks, but Htnshel admits his committee might have trouble lining up college players for two major reasons. They are: 1. The temptation of graduating J9M stars to accept professional offers and thus become ineligible for the Olympics. 2. Th« reluctance of the colleges to give undergraduates the necessary academic concessions and time off for the games. However, in the case of such undergraduates chosen for the Olympic, squad they will be away from their classrooms from mid- October until the first week of December, right In the heart of the fall semester. Also, Henshel agreed, some roaches may be unwilling tn have their star players miss pre-seaaon practice with their own college teams while they go to Australia. Forty-Niners Hunt Coach Again For Third Year In Row SAN KflANClSCO -UP— The San Francisco Forty-Nlners started looking for their third coach In three years Tuesday after President Tony Morablto fired Norman IKed) Slrader.

"The players played under Strader, not for him," said Morablto. "1 do nol want to place all the blame on Strader," said Morablto. "He is a fine gentleman and everything he did, I'm sure, was what he thought was for the best of th« squad. But it just didn't work out." Strader revealed that he hud a three-year contract, with two years to go, and, "Morablto told me he would honor the contract."
