ffctegWtph Tuesday, September 5, 1972 '•V Olympics thrown into uproar after Arabs invade, kill two Olympics suspended By BOB JOHNSON AP Sports Editor MUNICH (AT) - The 20th Olympic Games will be suspended THIS afternoon and a memorial service held Wednesday morning for two Israelis killed in a terrorist raid on the Olympic Village. The joint announcement by A very Brundage, president of the International Olympic Committee, and Willi Daume, president of the Olympic Organi/in.™ Committee, was made at a news conference. The announcement said competitions under way in the afternoon would be completed. The statement did not say wehn competitions would resume but it was believed they would after the Wednesday memorial service. MUNICH (AP) — The International Olympu: Oni- millee met in emcrs^ncy session today while Arab terrorists held 13 Israelis hostage in thei>- living quarters at Olympic Village. The terrorists killed two Israelis shortly after they climbed over a fence surrounding the vi'l&ge in a pre-dawn raid. They demanded rcioasp of 200 Arab terrorists held In Israel in exchimq? f'jr freedom of the 13 hostages. Hans Klein, press ch ef for the Games said no decision could be taken on haling or continuing the Olympics until the IOC gave the word. Canoeing, volleyball and G r e c o•R o min wrfstung events on today's sdi«dule-- one of the lightest of the Games—started on schedule. The Arab raid came in the wake of a gloriously climatic day for the U.S. swimming team. Mark Spitz won an unprecedented seventh gold medal, and Mike Burton, Karen Moe and Melissa Belote finished first in individual events But the lustre was somewhat tarnished by the raid and by disqualification of another American for taking medication barred by the Olympic health board Rick DeMont, an asthmatic 18-year-old from San Rafael, .Calif., who had already won the 400-meter freestyle last Friday, was ready to go for gold and improve, his own world record in the gruelling 1,500 meters. But only minutes before the race, DeMont was "medically ejected" for having taken Ephedrine, an asthma medication. It's presence was discovered in a routine urine test after his victory in the 400. "I can't say anything," DeMont said, fighting—and failing—to hold back the tears. "I put it all on my forms. I did everything anybody asked. I have nothing else to say." With DeMont out of the race, Burton of Sacramento, Calif., streaked to victory, shattering DeMont's record with a clocking of 15:52.58. "I'm sorry Rick wasn't in the race," said Burton, who finished nearly six seconds ahead of Australian Graham Windeatt, "and I'm not saying I would have beaten him ...." The ejection from the 1,500 was not, however, the major letdown faced by DeMont. He faced possible loss of his 400 gold as well.

(AP Wirephoto via cable from Munich) Baby-watcher Al hits two homers By HEKSCHia NISSENSON AP Sports Writer The pennant scramble in the American League East is so wacky that the four contenders who started play Monday with only one-half game separating them finished the day with— you guessed it—one-half game separating them. —Baltimore split a doubleheader with New York, winning 4-3 and then losing 5-2. That dropped the Orioles into a firstplace tie with Detroit, which edged Cleveland 2-1. —Boston beat Milwaukee 20, but lost the nightcap 6-2 and trails the leaders by one- half game and three percentage points. —The Yankees blew a chance to take over the top spot by blowing a late 3-0 lead in their opener against Baltimore and wound up instead in fourth place, one- half game and four points out. Oakland opened up some more ground on Chicago in the West Division—the A's lead by 3i£ games—by splitting a 10-5, 1-2 twin bill with California while the White Sox were being swept- New York's Fritz Peterson New York's Fritz Peterson blanked Baltimore for six innings in the opener and was staked to a 3-0 lead. But the Orioles erupted suddenly in the seventh on Boog Powell's single, a walk and Andy Etchebarren's second home nan of the season. They pinned the defeat on relief ace Sparky Lyle with a run in the eighth on Don Baylor's infield single, a wild pitch and Paul Blair's two-out double. The Yankees bounced back to take the nightcap by snapping a tie with three unearned runs in the eighth inning on runscoring singles by Bobby Murcer, Felipe Alou and John Ellis following an error by first .baseman Powell. Murcer had a double and home rim earlier and Rob Gardner pitched 8 1-3 strong innings before Lyle came on again to notch his 30th save, a club record. Willie Horton paced Detroit's victory with a two- run two-out triple off Gay lord Perry in the sixth inning, again preventing the Cleveland ace from winning By KEN RAPPOPORT Associated Press Sports Writer Al Oliver stayed up half the night diapering the baby, then really pinned it on the Philadelphia Phillis.

JUQ Blackledge was tfae winning pitceher and homers that started the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 10-0, 5-1 doubleheader sweep Monday, Oliver's swats in the opener were fashioned despite the agonies of little sleep, the typical tribulations of a young father. "I was really tired before the doubleheader started," said the Pirates' All-Star centerfielder. "My month-old daughter, Fclisa, put on her crying act Sunday night." After sharing the hero's act with Steve BJass' five-hitter in the first game, Oliver took a backseat to Bruce Kison in the second. The baby-faced righthander completed Pittsburgh's ninth doubleheader sweep this year with a five- hitter. "You hear so much about our hitters that people forget that we have one of the best pitching staffs in baseball," said Oliver. "The only reason that we don't have a 20-»ame winner is that our pitchers don't start every four or five games." noted Willie Stan:ell. whose 33rd homer boosted his major league-leading HBI total ot 10S and helped the Pirates win the second game. Pittsburgh's Leagueleading East margin jumped to an out-of-sight I'l games after the Labor Day activities. The Chicago Cubs, second in the Fast, lost a game after splitting a doubleheader with the Ne-v York Mets—winning the first one 2-0 and losing the second, 7-2.

After the Dodgers won the first game 6-5. the Reds came back to win '.lie nightcap 8-4 and move up a half-game on Houston. The Astros lost 6-5 to the Atlanta Braves. In the other National League games, the Montreal Expos trimmed the St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 in the first game of a doubleheader before losing the second. 8-7 and the San Diego Padres tripped the San Francisco Giants 1-0. Ferguson Jenkins, bidding for his sixth straight 20-game- winning season, hurled a four- hitter for his 19th victory as Chicago took the opener from New York. The Mets won the second game, featured by Gary Gentry's first victory since July 20. Manny Mota doubled home Bill Russell from second base with two out in the ninth inning to give Los Angeles its first-game triumph. Cincinnati came back with a 12-hit offense in the nightcap led by Tony Perez' two singles and a double. The Dodgers committed seven errors in the second game, a record for the Los Angeles team. Hank Aaron tied the score with a two-run bases loaded single in the ninth inning and Felix Millan sent home the winning run with a grounder for Atlanta. Carl Morton pitched a five- hitter, recording his first shutout since Sept. 1970 as Montreal won the opener from St. Louis.

Asked who, including himself, was the greatest swimmer of all time, Spitz grinned and then answered, "I don't think I'm in a position to say who's better or worse than I am." Spitz predicted before the Mexico City Olympics that he would capture six gold medals, but the then 18-year- old Indiana University freshman took only two relay and a silver and bronze individual medal on almost unbeatable teams. I n Munich, he won everything but the swimming hall. As Spitz answered questions, he sat in the relative security of the packed vruwd.
