Brundage Or Bondage four gold medals through 1,ast weekend, is supposed to be a school teacher in Sibez,ia. In ,all probability she has been in rigid train- ing for 'the past several ye,ars, pointing for these Olympics. Her time spent in the cl.ass- room is nebulous--if not nil. The Scan.din'av- ian countries .are by and large Socia,lisL de- spite .their professed political neutrality. State support of athletes is not uncommon. In fact, it is widely practiced. A recent article in Sport magazine voints out the outhndish impossibility of the United States produ'cing a ch,anpion even in figure skating---an event once completely dominat- ed by the tikes of Dick Button arid Carol Heir. The article rays it costs an average cf $500 a month merely to train a fi.ure skater for intern,ational competition. This, of course, narrows 'the field to the wealthy few. We are a country of same 190 million, yet never once have we produced a men's skiing champion. We have over 100 athletes eompeting in Austria, yet we have failed to win one gold medal. Irtdeed, whe,n Jran Sou- bert, the Oregon State cord, placed third in the women's downhill slalom, our athletes were practically ecstatic at not being skunked completely. Nonetheless, Brund,age persists in his simon pure a:thle,tic code, while we slip into the ranks of also rans arid has beans. The Russians arid the Scandinavi.ans, and indeed most of the world, are glad to see old Avery reelected to run our amateur athletics. They know we will follow .the tred mill farther and farther down-stream as long as this man ru,ns the show. It's .a sad thing to st back and wa,teh the finest nation histery has ever produced re- dced to a laughing stock on the internationM sports scene because of one stubbc.rn, inl old man. Brundage's third four-year term expires at the next meeting of the nern, Olym- pic committee next October in Tokyo. N,atur- ally he will seek re-election, q p:r;babl: will get it unless Ame:rieans let him kn,ow now be is no longer wanted. Brunflaee. who i now in his 70's, rowns a hotel in Chicag, and is fina,acially well off. He should get back to Chicago and get out of our Olympic affairs before it is too 1,ate. It might be al- ready. Ameica's pathetic sowing in the present Winer Olympics at Innsbruck, Austria, poias ou clearer than ever that Avery Brun- doge must be replaced as hed of United States amateur thletics. Brundage, probaMy more thn, any oher f, has led to the decline of American stpremaey in at'Medics. And, sad as it is, let there be no mistake that Russia has aver- ken us. In the Winter Olympics, of course, so has waetieally everyone el'so. A story ts currently making the rounds at the Winter Olympics tha.t a reporter from Pakistan ,asked an American, in aU seriousness, if the United States is lecated in, a tropical zone. Brundage, with his archaic sense of honor backed up by his enormous prover as head of ,the Internatioral Olympic c0anmittee, has created this American Frankenstein on the In.terntional spork ,scene. Brundge is the feaw who generally ma,n.- ges to suspend some of our top athletes prior to each Olympic Games, just to wove he is boss, it seems. The rest of the f,ur- year irterim period is usually spent with quarrels between the NCAA ,and the AAU. Generral Douglas McArthur did ,his best t. untangle this stupid affair during the past two years but it was .too much for :any ut- sider to handle. Losing like champions ,and being made laughing stocks of the entire world are dif- fren matters. Na,turally, our curre,n team has dipped to such a humiliating ebb that we are considered a nation of s,lotM and weaklings when it comes to h, ard athletic aining. This, however, is far from the truths. If our best athletes were allowed to com- pete--even encouraged to compete in the Olympic Games--we could still win. but no: with Bumbling Brundage running thi,gs. Brundage is bein,g duped by he guss,!an and the Scandinavian count!ties year ,atr year and everyone kn, ows it, but him. Th  Russiars, .of cmrse, are a Socialistic nation ,and .their deii,n,tion of an amate,u,r is a far cry from ours. Over there the State pays or subsidizes everything and eve .ryb,dy.

There is no "smart" way to evade these costs. A doctor of phi,o.o,phy de- gree casts as much in actual money expendod as 'a fair sized ranch. But money won't buy it. It is acquired by the most excruciating of all activ- ity, viz: holding the ears con- stant and working everything between. Nor can dctors of philos- ophy be passed off by sde references to book "lar,nen," "higher education," and im- practicality. Du Pont hires more doctors of philosophy than many of our large colleg- es ,and Universities. Who warts .to .say that du Pont 'has no "common sense?" This is common sense: Lok to ,medical .doctors for ,health, lawyers for law, egineers for engineeri,ng, ranchers for farming, and doetors o phil- osophy for edueaon.

Most Americas ,agree wih the honored concept that no one is free "to obstruct .at to contamina,te the pure stream of justice." It is a remarkable tribute to our society that, in exercising the many freefl:oms we enjoy, the people have never lost sight of .the need for a counterbalance of r:ghts --the assurance th,a:t the prac- tice of one righ shall not in- fringe upon n.or invade an- other.
