B4 Alton Evening Telegraph In walkout threat Monday, Aug\ist 21, 1972 Kenya, Ethiopia pivotal nations By HUBERT MI2ELL MUNICH <AP) - Kenya and Ethiopia, breeding grounds of Olympic dustanro running champions, loomed today as the pivotal nations w the great walkout threat of the Munich Games. Ethiopia has made i*s airline reservations for home. Kenya's athletes, meanwhile, waited in Olympic Village for the go-or-stay word from President Jonio Kenyatta amid -the furor over Rhodesia's entry in the 2f)lh Olympics. "If Jomo says go, the Kenyans will go," said a Mark American track star, "if Jomo says stay, those cats will stay. When Jomo speaks, that is Gospel." The 34 competitors from Ethiopia were booked on a flight today to Addis Abata as athletes from a dozen other countries hung on the fence over the Rhodesian question. fhe national Olympic committees of Africa remained rigid in their complaint to ;!ie International Olyni|ve Committee j>lxnit the in- Mtalion of while-controlled Rhodesia, a continental neic;h bor of South Africa which was kicked out of the 19f>8 games over similar charges. United States blacks stuck by their pledge to "stand united with our African brothers." hut continued to refuse full explanation of the veiled threat of withdrawal. While politics filled (lie ;'ir around Munich's magnificent Olympic Park, the yomu 1 , sports warriors continued readying themselves for competition in fill-degree breezes. Sightseers by the thousands jammed the areas around Olympic stadiums, m;i;iy Bavarians peering through glass and fences at the venues of these billion-dollar games which many will not see due to a scarcity of tickets. Hundreds climbed the 01- ympiaberg—Olympic mountain—for a panoramic view of the entire sports scene. The man-made hill is constructed atop rubble from World War II, when Munich was heavily bombed. It will be from that reasonably slight peak that blunderbusses will be fired Saturday to signal the opening of rhe 20th Olympic Games. Thoy replace the traditional cannons. The third of four chartered 707 jets ferried members of the United Stales team across the Atlantic Ocean with the final hunch due tonight. Blind open winner fires low of 93 GKKKNSBOKO, N. C.

Foyt Jr. pours ice water over his swollen ankle after finishing second in the Tony Bettenhouse Memorial 100 mile race in Springfield Sunday. This was Foyt's first race since his accident in June when he broke his ankle and suffered burns in a racing accident. Al Unser finished first, Foyt said that he was trying to give Unser a good run to the finish but the pain from his ankle was bothering him. (AP Wire- photo) Brundage weary after 20 years By WILL GRIMSLEY MUNICH (AP) - The old man sat in the cushioned hotel chair, shoulders still erect and the black tie neatly knotted at the collar of his white shirt. His face showed signs of weariness and despair. "Twenty years is enough," Avery Brundage said with a heavy sigh. "The world goes on." These were the final hours of his role as the controversial president of the International Olympic Committee. Within the next few days he will be succeeded by either Count Jean de Beaumont, a thin, dark-haired French nobleman, or Lord K i 11 a n i n , a jovial, wisecracking Irishman. Brundage was grabbing a few moments of rest in his fourth floor suite at the Vierjahreszeiten (Four Seasons) Hotel in mid-town Munich. On the window ledge was a stack of books, the Brundage Memoirs, Written in German and Japanese, garnished with pictures showing tho IOC president with the late Nikita Krush- chev, Franco of Spain and Queen Elizabeth plus princes , and potentates of innumerable states.

Do old IOC presidents, like old soldiers, just fade away? "Don't worry, I'll keep busy," Brundage said with a deep-seated chuckle. "I have many plans.

Brundage was asked if there had been any pressure from fellow IOC delegates trying to persuade him to remain on the job. "Every day," he'replied. "Half a dozen or so at a time. Yes, most all of them have asked me to stay." Is there a chance? "I have stated repeatedly in public that I would not serve again," he said. "Privately, it has been the same—I refuse to make the race." "After all, this is 50 years in the Olympics for me, and I think I deserve a little rest." Brundage was an all-around athlete in his youth, a competitor in the decathlon and pentathlon in the 1912 games. A construction engineer and contractor, he built a multimillion dollar fortune during the Depression years, later served as president of the U.S. Olympic Committee. The old warrior wears his age and wounds well. He is 84, will be 85 two weeks after the Munich games end, an age when most men are seeking comfort in a rocking chair. Although his walk has slowed a bit and his voice occasionally breaks in a lengthy speech, he is vigorous and jaunty. Bald and gray, he has an owlish face, spectacles perched on a bulbous nose, but it is a firm- jawed face that advertises the unshakeable militance of his ideals. As expected, old Avery goes out swinging. He tolled a death knell for the Winter Games. "May they receive a decent burial at Denver (1976)," he said in his final speech. "Olympic glory is for amateurs." "The Olympic games are not a public enterprise, they are a unique and private affair. No one has a right it's a privilege ..." "The games must not yield to commercialism." Brundage's principles have been labelled archaic, unrealistic, out of, step with modern times. Perhaps, yet one wonders where the Olympic movement might be today if the crochety old man hadn't stood as a bulwark against creeping professionalism. And what of the Olympics of the future? Can they survive if the IOC rein is taktu by a man of lesser will? Can Beaumont or Lord Killanin hold the line—or will they choose tu do so? Pearson's car length victory 5th major win By BLOYS BRITT AP Auto Racing Writer Old pro David Pearson, approaching his 39th birthday, continues to roll up victories in stock car racing, while Al Unser appears to be back in the groove after a long dry spell. Pearson, already the winner of $770,000 in prize money in a 15-year career, beat close friend Bobby Allison by a car length to capture the Yankee 400 stock car event at Michigan International Speedway Sunday. It was the Mercury driver's fifth major win of the season, after replacing A..I. Foyt in the Glen Wood car in April. Foyt had taken the machine to two 500 mile wins and a second place in another. Unser, back-to-back winner of the Indianapolis 500 in 19701971, showed his versatility by driving a Ford Torino to victory in a United States Auto Club stock car race at Springfield, 111., Saturday, then 24 hours later hopping into a championship dirt car to win a feature race at the same track Sunday. Brett Lunger, of Pomona, Calif, was the overall winner of a Continental Formula 5000 at Road Atlanta (Ga) with Brian Redman of London second. Redman at first had been declared the winner, but Carl Hogan, owner of the Hagger Lola T300 driven by Lunger, lodged a protest. He contended that the race should have ended after 28 laps rather than 27. The protest was upheld almost two hours after the race had abruptly ended because heavy rain and oil on the track created a safety hazard. The checkered flag was waved on the 28th lap while Redman was in the pits having rain tires placed on his Chevron B-24. Redman had won the first 35-lap heat, but was trailing Lunger in the second heat when the rain forced a halt. Third overall -went to Skip Barber of Carlisle, Mass, and fourth to John Morton of Torrence, Calif. In other racing action, Jack Bowsher of Springfield, Ohio, averaged 1)6.743 MPII in winning a USAC stock car race at Milwaukee Sunday. Gordon Johncock had won a similar race there Thursday in a Che- vellc. Pearson, already a three- time winner of the National Association for Slock Car Auto Racing's Grand National driving title, posted an average speed of 134,41fi miles per hour for his 200 laps around the two-mile Michigan oval and collected $13,385 from the $84,000 purse. Bobby Isaac and Richard Petty, both driving Dodges, placed third and fourth, while Cale Yarborough brought a Ford from 21st at the start to claim fifth place. A.J. Foyt came in second behind Unser in the champ i o n s h i p dirt race at Springfield, with Lee Kunsman finishing third and Johnny Rutherford fourth. It was Foyl's first start since a race injury late in May.
