(AP Wirephoto) By HUBERT MIT/,1 U, MUNICH (AI 1 ) — Finally the young, the strong, tho graceful and the swift are being thrust, into prominence at Munich's Olympic Games. Politics disappeared into '.ho Bavarian fog as A very Brundage and Ihe unlirn Khodesiati team wore consigned to spoils' pasture within 24 hours. "Tho game is on," said trackman Lee Evans of San Jose, Calif. U.S. and Kenyan runners galloped through a blistering preview of Olympic track and field on Wednesday night. Black speedsters who earlier threatened a walkout at the Games wore among the most impressive. F,vans, the 4fl(l-meter geld medalist in the 1068 Olympics, anchored the U.S. 1,600-meter relay team to a rapid closing of 3*: 00.69 fastest in the world this year. Killanin heads Olympics By GEOFFREY MILLKIl MUNICH (AP) - They're changing guard in the Olympic movement and a hint of new ideas is in the air. Lord Killanin, elected Wednesday to succeed Avcry Brundage as president of the International Olympic Committee, indicates he will not be a diehard champion of amateurism during his eight- year term. "I don't believe in open Olympics." lie said in an interview. "I don't believe in professional Olympics. But I do think we have to realize that we are about to enter the last quarter of the 20th Centurv." Killanin, 59-year-old Irish nobleman who has been a journalist, author and movie producer, does not. take over as president until the end of the Munich Games Sept. 10. Until the Olympic torch is extinguished, Brundage, who has refused to budge an inch on amateurism and Ihe eligibility rule for the last 20 years, remains in office. "I will make no policy statement;; for the moment," Killanin said. "I do not wish to say anything which might be interpreted as being in conflict with Ihe president— not that there is any conflict between us." But Killanin's remarks on amateurism followed sig- nificantly on those of VVilli Daume, 59-year-old president of the West German National Olympic Committee, at tho formal opening of the IOC session last weekend. Daume said then that the high Olympic standards of today "can no longer be achieved by amateurism in the usual sense of the word." Killanin made it clear he does not agree with Brundage's wish to see the Winter Olympics concluded. But he shares Brundage's resistance to political interference with the Olympics. The president-elect — a man with a mischievous sense of humor — said: "In my country of Ireland, when it starts to snow I run indoors. So I'm completely neutral on the subject of winter sports." Then he added seriously: "I have no basic objection to the Winter Games but I think it is essential, if they continue, that they put their house in order." Killanin said the Olympic movement had always had its political problems ever since he first became a member of the IOC in 1952. Politics in Sport are inevitable and we shall always have them. What I don't like is Demy pressurized by political groups into making decisions. "Our decisions in the IOC should be sportsmen's deci- s i o n s , not politicans' decisions." Allen's mighty home run may Pro 1 . doubleheader be longest he s ever hit under way By JERRY LISKA CHICAGO (AP)—"He's Babe Ruth, Rogers Homsby and Ty Cobb all put together." That was wild poetic licen.-.o by Manager Chuck Tanner of the Chicago White Sox, who" blurted it after Dick Allen belted probably the most prodigious home run of his major league career yesterday. Allen, the almost day-to-day hero of the surging Sox, ox ploded a blast of more than 470 feet into the distant While Sox Park c e n t e r f i e 1 d bleachers in the seventh inning of what had been a titbit duel with the New York Yankees. The two-run smash into an area reached before only by Jimmy Foxx, Hank Greenberg and Alex Johnson sowed up a 5-2 victory for White Sox mound ace Wilbur Wood, now 22-11 as the major league's winnmgcst pitcher. Allen, who was a troubled National League star for 'he Philadelphia Phils, St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Dodgers over a nine-season span, modestly appraised his (ape in e a s u r e homer off Yankee reliefer Lincly Me Daniel. "I don't know if it was mv longest, I hit several out of Connie Mack Stadium, but T really don't keep track of those tilings," said Allen, now loading the American League with 3. homers and ill KBIs. "1 only go by bow it feels when 1 connect," said Allen, who wields a •Ill-ounce bat like a tooth-pick. How did tho one fool 'hat went soaring far over the >ii- foot wall at tho 440-foot mark in dead cenlerfield'.' Allen roaivd with laughter as bo said: "Good, good, real good." Swarmed hy newsmen in I lie Sox clubhouse, Allen si ripped down to underwear with gaping holes at the knee and elbow. "1 can't change this 1,000- mikT stuff while we're rollins; so i^ood," said Allen. "1 was with Ihc Phillies when Uiey blow it in 1904. We're not going to blow it this time, we're too scrappy." Allen, called by Tanner a "can't miss" candidate for tlie AL's most Valuable Player Award, noted this main difference between Nationnl League and American League pitching: "In this league (AL), they'd rather fool you than challenge you." \Vood, who now has matched his last season final hag ol' 22 victories and could be the biggest White Sox winner since lUnl Faber won 25 in 1921, was elated over Allen's homer. "I don't know how long it was. but il sewed up the ! a m e when we were leading only 32," said Wood, rubber-armed knuckleballer who made his 2()th start wtii only t\vu days rest. The Sox, with a torrid home record of -JS-Hi, Friday invade Milwaukee in the start of a nine-game excursion on the load whore they have an unimpressive 21-32 mark. Returning c? for trial By BOB GREEN PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) — Pro golf's first doubleheader, with two separate and distinct tournaments being played at the same time on the same course, got underway today with only one thing certain: The man who leads the $100,000 Liggett and Myers Open after 36 holes has absolutely no chance of winning. In fact, he won't even be allowed to compete for the $20,000 first prize. He'll have to shift over to the $150,000 U.S. Professional Match Play Tournament— with the possibiity of facing Jack Nicklaus or Lee Trevino or Arnold Palmer head-to- head in his first match. Both tournaments are on the 6,953-yard, par 72 Country Club of North Carolina course. The L&M is a regular 72-hole stroke play event. It runs through Sunday with one round of 18 holese ach day. On the weekend, the match play tournament will be held. It's straight match play, the only one on the pro schedule this year, in which one player goes head-to-head with his opponent. Two rounds are scheduled both Saturday and Sunday. Eight players including Nicklaus. Trevino, Palmer and defending match play champion DeWitt Weaver, are exempt. They won't play until the weekend. Eight more will come out of the L&M to serve as their opponents in the first round of mutch play. Larry Black of Miami, Fla., back from leg injuries, c'icl 20.24 in the 200-meter sprint and was leadoff man on the American 400-meter relay that blazed around Olympic Stadium in 38.89 seconds seven-tenths seconds off Ihe world mark. Kvans and his three running mates, Vince Matthews of New York, Wayne Collett of Santa Monica, Calif., and John Smith of Los Angeles were among the American blacks who vowed to leave Munich if white-controlled Rhodesia had been allowed to corhpctc. Rhodesia was kicked out by the International Olympic Committee over a passport technicality, a bitter setback for retiring IOC President Avery Brundage. His pride still openly wounded, Brundage presided Wednesday over the election of Lord Killanin of Ireland as the new IOC president, and there was a scent of change in the air. "We have to realize we are about to enter the last quarter of the 20th century," the Irish peer said. While the few U.S. track stars who entered the prc- Olympic meet were impressive, the Yank women's swimming team suffered at least a temporary setback. Denna Deadruff of Cincinnati injured her ankle in a fall at Olympic Village, and the butterfly specialist was hobbling Wednesday on crutches. In the track and field preview, Kenya's fabled Kip Keino, who may retire after the Munich Olympics, ran the fastest 800 meters of his career with a 1:46.41 clocking. Keino will not run the 800 in the Games but will concentrate on the 1,500, in wh'.cn he is defending Olympic champion, along with Ihe relays. Robert Ouko of Kenya timed a creditable 1:48.11 in another 800 meters heat. He is a teammate of Black's in the United States at North Carolina Central College. Black had been timed in 20.0 for 200 meters prior to suffering leg injuries. He has been slowly regaining speed, but bartly qualified for Munich by finishing third in the U.S. Trials at Eugene, Ore. Valery Bor/ov of Russia, who has run 20.2, is the likely favorite in the spectacular dash event when Olympic track and field competition begins Aug. 31. Bill Bownman of Oregon, the head track coach of the American men, removed 19- ycar-old Hey Robinson of Lakeland, Fla., from the 400- meter relay team and placed the more experienced Black on the No. 1 leg. Black's males will be Robert Taylor of Houston, Tex., Gerald Tinker of Miami and Eddie Hart of Pittsburg, Calif. The 38.80 was equal to 3rd BELL INN CAFETERIA & LOUNGE 99c SPECIAL DAILY Private Parties S MID-AMERICA THEATRES I the year's fastest time. In the shot put. it was strictly an American show with a 1-2-3 sweep. George Woods of Wordon, 111., throwing Ihc best of his career, hit 70 foot. 1 : ;:'| inches. Al Kcuerbach of San Jose, Calif.. was second at 68% and Brian Oldfield of South Elgin, 111., third at fiS':,.
