(UPl) R«rid€flU of Hiis stMitfufefttitai Pennsylvania community have launched a drive to have the late Jim Thorpe, who was stripped of his Olympic medals at (fie height of his athletic glory, restored to his amateur status and rewritten into the record books. ' Thorpe, who died in 1953 afer declining into a bleak existence that included heavy' drinking, made this picturesque borough a household word just after the turn of the century when he led Carlisle Indian School teams to victories in various sports. . He was an All - America football player for two ^years and became the hero of the 1912 Olympics, where he won the pentathlon and decathlon and captured eight gold medals. But the Olympic committee later learned he played minor league baseball for a pittance—about $15 a week—and stripped him of the awards. Reuben Smitley, the bor­ ough's director of parks and recreation, began a petition drive Saturday to enlist the support of Carlisle's .18,000 residents. With the help of the local Jaycees, Smitley hopes to obtain at least 10,000 signatures end eventually the help of President Nixon, Con' gress and the International Olympic Committee. Smitley is a member of the National Jim" Thorpe Committee based in Yale, Okld., which is spearheading the petition drive nationwide. Vale is Thorpe's birthplace. Smitley said similar drives,, including one in Carlisle four yeafs ago, failed because of I opposition from the conserva-! tive former head of the IOC, Avery Brundage. "We were hanging our heads against a stone wall—Avery Brundage," Smitley said. He I said Brundage also competed in the 1912 Olympics and probably | KISLER HI SPINS OUT of "600" Race! takes lead!
