PAGE 8 THE FLORALA NEWS - THURSDAY, Weekly Newspaper Report By CONGRESSMAN Wm. L. Dickinson Political Ties In The Olympics It's inevitable that poli- tics will enter all phases of our lives. So, it's no surprise that international politics is a main event at the Summer Olym- pics in Munich. It all started with the ex- pulsion of Rhodesia from the games. Several black Af- rican nations said they would boycott' the games because Rho- desia only had a few blacks on their team. These black Afri- can nations charged white supremacy and racism werebe- ing exhibited by the Rhodesians. But most of those nations pro- testing had no whites on their team, either. The ultimate de- cision bv the International: Olympic Committee punished all those athletes from Rhodesia-- both black and white -- who had trained for so many years. It seems to me a better so- lution would have been to al- low those who were protesting so vehemently to excuse them- selves from participation. The Internation Olympic Commit- tee should have told those pro- testing nations, "If you don't like the rules, then you don't have to play -- we can con- tinue without your partici- pation." But alas, that was not to be. Then there is the matter of six bozing officials being ousted from further olympic duties. Four referees and two judges were considered "not to have displayed the necessary quali- ties." The International Ama- teur Boxing Association said the officials were removed after giving Ray Scales, a 19-year- old first-year student at a Ta- coma, Washington community college, a 3-2 decision over East Germany's Ulricl{ Beyer, who won the European title in 1971. It is a pity, however, that none of the officials who ruled Soviet light middleweight Va- lery Tregubov the winner in a contested bout With Reggie Jones of Newark, New Jersey, were in the ousted group. At the time this column is being written, two American olympic sprinters have been disqualified, apparently because there was a mix-up in the time they were supposed to be at the stadium. So, the two American sprinters who won seven of the last eight olympic 100- meter runs, Eddie Hart and hey Robinson, will not be running LURLEEN B.

They would have almost certainly won a gold or silver medal. Stan Wright, coach of the U. S/ olympic sprinters takes all the blame for the mistake himself. Who knows where the blame lies? However, there are some bright spots, particularly a young American names Mark Spitz, who at the time this column is being written, has won five gold medals and going for seven. Only one other per- son has ever won five gold medals -- Italian fencer Nedo Nadi in 1920. And who can overlook the actions of our bas- ketball team, our water polo team, our wrestlers, our boxers, and all the other tre- mendous amateur American athletes. Whatever the outcome of these olympic games, it is certain that more is at stake in Mu- nich than just individual honors. The olympics give the United States a chance to prive to the world that our athletes are not soft, flabby Americans who are spoiled by the rood life -- that the United States athletes are as good or bet- ter than those of any nation, even in little-known sports. The olympic games are a matter of national pride. They are truly games of international politics, and to the winners go the admiration and respect of the world. I am sure that our young men and women will continue to prove that Ameri- cans are winners. CURTIS R. EHLERT COMPLETES SALES TRAINING e Curtis R.
