Section B Pages 1 lo 8 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Alton, Olympians seeking most gold medals ever By BOB JOHNSON Associated Press Sports Editor MUNICH (APAK) - The rich old men who run the Olympics with concern for power, politics and prestige finally turned the 20th Summer Games over to the athletes, in opening pomp Saturday after weeks of bitter wrangling. Almost as if in mockery of the bickering, the first official sound of the Games was the mellow baritone mooing of alpine horns, the signal to start the opening ceremony. This was followed later by the rattle of old blunderbusses instead of the customary military cannon salute. The 10,000 best young men and women athletes of 123 nations paraded in their team dress uniforms and a lithe, blond German runner lighted the Olympic flame. But absent from the parade ranks were the 43 athletes of white-dominated Rhodesia, voted out of the games when the International Olympic Committee yielded to the clamor of black African nations to reverse pn agreement made a year earlier. Avery Brundage, retiring this year as president of the IOC, called this move sheer power politics that did violence to Olympic ideals Brundage sadly noted that it was the first time a vote had gone against him in 20 years as IOC president—so hf. mounttd the rostrum to preside over his'last Games on a note of defeat, rather than triumph. But as the torch flared and the athletes paraded, the Games turned again to what they are supposed to be— man-to man competion for medals. For 16 days they will run, jump and swim—and do scores of other strong, swift and agile things—in pursuit of 195 gold medals, the highest number ever to be awarded in Olympic competition. In all there will be 1,109 gold, silver and bronze medals. The opening ceremony was a mixture of military precision, dedication to ideals and gestures of friendship carried out within sight of a hill built of Munich's heaped- up rubble from World War II. West German president Gustav Heinemann, offical sponsor of the Games, entered the stadium at 10 a.m., EDT, on the signal of eight alpine horns— curved wooden instruments about 20 feet long that emit a deep-throated tone used for calling from peak 10 valley to peak in the Alps, which rise within sight of Munich on a clear day. A 60-man military band played the German natioial anthem as the throng of 80,000 — 45,000 seated, 35,000 standing— rose in the huge gray concrete stadium. The teams entered lo special music, a combination of tunes from various countries arranged in march time. The tunes included "When the Saints Go Marching In" for the United States, "Tiritomba" for the Italians and one called "Auf da J u n g e r Wandersmann"— which translates roughly t'n "Get Up Young Wanderer"— for the Germans. Greece, original home of the Olympics, led the parade of athletes while West Germany, as the host, brought up the rear. Between them the countries paraded in alphabetical order and in a profusion of colors— among them Americans in red and white; Frenchmen in red, white and blue; East Germans in orange; West Germans in blue and yellow; Italians in blue and gray. The alphabet used was German. So Canada—Kanada— Rain, Orioles help pad idle Sox' lead By HAL BOCK (AP Sports writer) Mother Nature stepped into baseball's frantic American League division races Friday night and the Oakland A's only wish it had rained in California the way it did in Minnesota and Milwaukee. The slender leads enjoyed by Detroit in the East and Chicago in the West took a dousing of rain with the Tigers washed out and Minnesota and the White Sox at Milwaukee. As a result, one margin shrank and the other grew. It was dry on the West Cost, where the second place clubs, Baltimore and Oakland clashed. And the defending champion Orioles used some ninth Inning lightning to rally for three runs and a 5-3 victory. The comeback triumph, Tennis tourney reaches finals HAVERFORD, Pa. (AP) — Professional Virginia Wade of England and amateur Laurie Fleming of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., have battled their way at steamy Marion Cricket Club into the finals of the $15,000 Pennsylvania Lawn Tennis Championships. Miss Wade ousted Kazuko Sawamatsu, the Japanese national champion, 6-0, ti-3 Friday while Miss Fleming had all she could handle from Isabella Fernandez of Colombia until the South American girl wilted in the 90-degree heat and lost 1-6, 7-6, 6-2. Miss Wade, gunning for prize money of $1,100 faced the 17-year-old Miss Fleming today. Also matched today were Roger Taylor of England and teen-ager Jimmy Connors of Belleville, 111. The winner will play in the men's finals Sunday against 37year-old Australian veteran Mai Anderson, who upset second-seeded Mark Cox of England, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, 4-6, 6-0 on Friday.

Beaver, NY, 17'J. built around a clutch pinch single by journeyman Tommy Davis, boosted Baltimore into a flatfooted tie with Detroit at the top of the East Division. The A's, meanwhile, slipped one full game back of Chicago in the West. Elsewhere in the AL Friday night, NeAv York, third in the East, remained 2% games off the pace by splitting a doubleheader with Kansas City. The Yanks' won the first 4-1 and dropped the second 5-1. Fourth place Boston moved within three games of the top with a 4-0 decision over Texas and Cleveland edged California 2-1 in 11 innings. Dave Duncan's seventh in ning homer had snapped a 2 2 tie for the A's and Catfish Hunter nursed the slim lead into the ninth. But Dave Johnson opened the Orioles' last chance with a single and Johnny Gates sacrificed pinch runner Mark Belanger to second. That brought up pinch hitter Davis, acquired only last week from the Chicago Cubs, and the veteran outfielder delivered a single, tying the score. Then Don Buford followed with a triple, scoring Davis and a wild pitch brought home Baltimore's wrapup run. Reggie Jackson, just off the 15-day disabled list, had hom- ered for the A's and Terry Crowley for the Orioles earlier. The victory left Baltimore with a 64-55 record, the same as Detroit. The A's, who could have moved within two percentage points of first place Chicago, fell one full game behind instead. The Yankees, who've spent the last 15 days no more than 2i£ games off the East pace, remained at that distance by splitting with the Royals. New York bounced from behind to take the opener. Bobby Murcer's 22nd home run of the year tied il in the seventh inning and then the Yankees scored three times in the eighth for the victory. Felipe Alou's 2,000th career base hit drove home the tie- breaking run. Relief ace Sparky Lyle picked up his sixth victory to go with his 28 saves. In the nightcap, the Royals used home runs by Amos Otis and John Mayberry to gain the split. Otis' two-run shot was his 10th of the season while Mayberry hit No. 13. Rookie Mike Jackson, making his first major league start, gained the victory with late-relief help from submariner Ted Abernathy. The Reel Sox tightened the East race a bit more with Luis Tiant tossing a four- hitter to shut out Texas. Luis Aparicio tagged his first homer of the year, a two-run shot in the seventh inning for Boslon. The victory was the fourth consecutive complete game triumph for Tiant, who has allowed just 10 hits in his last three starts. It was his second straight shutout and the second straight game in which he has had nine strikeouls. Dick Tidrow surrendered an unearned run in the first inning and then shut California out the rest of the way as Cleveland nipped the Angels. Ex-Angel Alex Johnson scored Cleveland's first run and then drove in the winner with a two-out triple in the llth. Cardinals blast, then are blasted ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals produced 14 hits in defeating the San Diego Padres 7-4 in the first game of a doubleheader Friday night, but the Padres, taking advantage of the Cardinals' slumping relief pitching, erupted for five runs in the seventh inning and two more in the eighth to rally past St. Louis 8-7 in the nightcap. The Cardinals' victory in the first game was sweet for winner Reggie Cleveland 13-10 as he squared matters with Padres' Mike Caldwell, 6-6, who defeated him in San Diego in a recent game. Cleveland ran into trouble in the seventh when the Padres put together three hits for two runs, and again in the ninth when a single by Leron Leo and Nate Colbert's 35th homer forced the calling of reliever Diego Segui to protect the victory. Cardina, catcher Ted Simmons, who had three of the Red Birds' 14 hits, belted a homer in the seventh for the final Cardinal tally. The Cardinals produced the long ball in the second game also when Joe Torre slammed Sports Classified llinois, Saturday, August 26, 1972 marched with the K'.s and Ethiopia—Aethiopia—with the A's. However, an exception was made for the United States, which is Vercingte Station in Germany. The U.S. athletes marched with the U's. With the athletes in place, 3,200 boys and girls ranging in age from 10 to 14 darted into the stadium with welcoming bouquets and wreaths of flowers. Then to the blare of a special Olympic fanfare, Brundage and Willi Daumc. president of the Munich Organizing Committee, mounted the podium, and Daume addressed a "welcome to Olympic visitors from all over the world, lo athletes, assistants, spectators and friend of the Olympic Festival." Perhaps alluding to the Rhodesian controversy that preceded the Games. Duume .said: "Whatever each one of us may consider to he the sense of these Games, and even if we can sometimes offer only imperfect and illusory solutions to our problems, may we all recognize the Games as a festival of hope for a humanity able to overcome that which divides and to point the way toward mutual respect and underslanding." Brundage, who followed Daume to the microphone, said: "Our German friends have done their best to stage this world feslival of youth with dignity. The organization of the Games was splendid a n d the facilities are magnificent. I sincerely hope thai all athletes will compete in the true Olympic sprit with a sense of fair play and that their performance and achievement will be a source of pride." He then formally asked President Heinemann to open the Games. Mexico City, returned an by the IOC constitution, he said: "1 hereby declare the Olympic Games celebrating the XXth Olympiad in the modern era to be opened." Eight gold medal winners- West German rowers who won in Mexico in 1968— hoisled the Olympic flag with i t s five linked circles representing friendship among the youth of all continents. Accompanied by Mexican mariachis and folk dancers dipping and twirling in bright red and black costumes. Octavio Senties, mayor of Mexico City, returned an Olympic flag made of embroidered satin to Brundage. Brundage passed it on to Georg Krona-Witter, mayor of Munich. It will remain in the Munich city hall until 1976, when it will be transferred to Montreal. As the mayor accepted the flag, Bavarian musicians and dancers—some of them cracking long whips—joined in the performance.

The Padres cut the lead by one in the second when Larry Stahl doubled, went to third on an infield out and scored on another infield grounder. The Red Birds increased their lead to 6-1 in the fifth, but the Padres battled back in the seventh, loading the bases against Cards' hurler Al Santorini. Pinch-hitter Curt Blefary greeted reliever Diego Segui's second appearance with a two run single. Centerfielder Dave Roberts doubled home another run, a fielder's choice brought in another and Colbert tied the score at 6-6 with a single before John Cumberland came in to get the Cardinals out of the inning. The Cardinals produced the go-ahead run in the seventh, but reliever Ray Bare couldn't make the lead stand up. The padres' D a r r e 11 Thomas and Pat Corrales singled to start the eighth and Thomas scored on a ground out tying the score.

Now the green turf of the stadium, with its encircling brick red track, was filled with the color of all the nations and re;idy for the last and most dramatic act of the opening ceremony. Sitting in burnt orange seats of honor under a spun-glass, bat-wing roof, the official party gazed with the throng across the expanse of the stadium to where a slender gray column stood, hearing a flat saucer, the cauldron for the Olympic flame. Through the gate with carefully measured strides came Guenlher Zahn, an 18-year-old policeman from Passau and junior 1,500-meter champion of Germany. Holding a torch lit in Olympia, Greece, and accompanied by four other runners— one each from Africa. America. Asia and Oceana—he circled the red track. Without breaking stride, he mounted Ifi2 steps up the stadium and over a ramp to the platform, from which he touched off the flame that will burn throughout these Games. Sixty mountain men from Berchlesgaden fired three 20- gun salutes with Iheir ancient weapons. As Ihe flames rose, a 22- year-old medical sludenl and track star, Heidi Schueller, mounted the podium and swore the Olympic oath: "In the name of all competitors, I promise that we will take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honor of our teams." She was the first woman to lake the oath in the Summer Games. The athletes then departed, ready to compete, starting Sunday. skins' first defeat in preseason competition and came before 52.6-17 at Tiger Stadium and a national television audience. Greg Landry threw an eight yard touchdown pass to Ted Vactor to start Detroit's second period explosion. Errol Mann kicked a field goal minutes later, then Landry and Steve Owens combined on a 50-yard pass-run play for another TD.

No, that isn't a typographical error. That's 12, as in a dozen. "I don't want to give up on him," said Manager Paul Owens after his pitcher dropped a G-l decision to the Cincinnati Reds Friday night to tie a team record for futility. Reynolds, who hasn't won since last season, duplicated Russ Miller's unattractive mark of 1928 and continued to flirt with the National League and major league records. The National League record for consecutive losses is 18, shared by Clifton Curtis of the 1910 Boston Braves and Roger Craig of the 1963 New York Met. John Nabors s e t the major league record of 19 with the Philadelphia A's in 1916. "I hope that Reynolds doesn't want to give up on himself," continued Owens. "With a little luck, and if we'd score some runs for him, he could easily be pitching .500 ball instead of being 0-12. "He has a good attitude and I don't think he's discouraged. And I intend to keep him in our regular rotation. Next year, he could easily win 12, 13, or 14 for us." Cincinnati improved on its strong first-place margin in the National League West as the second-place Houston Astros lost to the Montreal Expos 4-3 and fell nine games bthind. Elsewhere, the Pittsburgh Pirates split a doubleheader with the Los Angeles Dodgers, winning the first 3-2 in 12 innings and losing the second, 4-3. The Pirates boosted their front-running margin in the East to 12 games as second- place New York dropped a 2-1 decision to the Atlanta Braves. Area ivinners in 'Special Olympics 9 Fourteen handicapped youngsters from the Telegraph area participated in the International Special Olympics at Los Angeles as part of 1(12 - member group representing Illinois, Region 3. Over 250.000 participated throughout the United States and foreign countries, eom- petiting in track and field, swimming, gymnastics and team sports on a local and regional basis. The two-day international competition was held at the University of California in l.os Angeles. Area winners included Eddie Huddelson of Shipman. who won a silver medal in the soflball throw.

Reynolds had an unaccustomed 1-0 lead, but failed to hold it in the fourth inning as the Reds came up with five runs—two on opposing pitcher Don Gullett's single. G u 11 e 11, not incidentally, completed his first game of the year to make his record 6-7. He had been sidelined by hepatitis.

Manny Sanguillen's run- scoring single in the 12th inning gave the Pirates their first- game victory. Bill Buckner drilled a two-run homer and Claude Osteen scattered nine hits to give the Dodgers the second game. Ralph Garr hammered his ninth homer of the year in the fifth inning to boost Atlanta over New York. The blast gave the Braves a 2-0 lead and helped them withstand a homer by New York's John Milner in the seventh. "I don't like to hit too many home runs," said Garr. "You hit a few and people start expecting you to hit them. And worse, you start expecting yourself to hit them, and that's when you're in trouble. You start swinging too hard and pulling your neck and things like that." Ken Henderson drove in five runs with two homers and a single, leading San Francisco past Chicago. Henderson, hitting safely for the 19th game in the last 20, also singled in the first and walked in the eighth before grounding out in the ninth. Reliever Diego Segui came on to halt a ninth-inning rally and help Reggie Cleveland win his 13th game for St. Louis in the opener.
