76 Olympics Jeopardized
After the national and state
elections November 7, it seems
Denver, Colorado is going to
make Olympic -history.
The voters of that Rocky
Mountain state rejected govern
mental plans to fund the 1976
Winter Olympic Games with
increased taxation. The vote,
almost a 2:1 ratio, approved a
statewide referendum to cut off
state money for the next Olym
piad. At that time, the International
Olympic Committee (IOC) had
little choice but to move the
Olympics to another city. If the
move is made, it will be the first
time in Olympiad history that a
host city lost the games after the
initial bid had been accepted and
approved.

Can you imagine a "free-for-all" between the Grizzly wrestling
and gymnastics teams. That could be an extreme solution to the
situation at hand this year.
This situation concerns the utilization of the mats by both the
wrestlers and gymnasts.
With Southern Oregon College (S.O.C.) requesting the return of
their circular wrestling mat which the girls had used, the gymnasts
are left without any tumbling mats whatsoever. The removal of the
S.O.C. mat left no alternative but for the gymnasts to request more
time on the wrestling mats.
On the other hand, it poses just as much difficulty for the wrestlers
since it would cut down on their practice time. At the present time the
wrestlers reluctantly relinquish the wrestling room for 80 minutes on
Monday and the entire day Thursday. This poses a certain problem for
the wrestlers since wrestling matches are held on Thursday nights. It
means a review that might help someone, would have to be skipped.
The same goes with the gymnasts. To them, the time they spend
on the mats is definitely insufficient to prepare for competition. A
gymnasts floor exercise routine must cover all of the mat. If she is not
used to the large area to work with, she may end up looking like she is
tethered to the center of the mat.
The lack of tumbling space is also a problem. There is always the
danger of smashing into the walls or ceiling when performing the
more dynamic aerials.
As for next year, the problem has been solved.
O.S.A.A. decided to have gymnatic season in the fall. Hopefully
the new girls gym will be assembled by then and the gymnastic team
will be able to practice in there. The mats however, will have to be
transported into the gym for the girls use during the fall season, and be
transported back out in time for the wrestlers first practice.
We do thank the administration for ironing out next year's
problem. But it still leaves this year in quite a bind.

Even so, private Colorado
businessmen supporting the
Olympic Games succeeded in
imposing a 30 day court injunc
tion. Three private citizens, who
obtained the restraining order,
said the amendment cutting off
funds could not be interpreted as
a vote against the Olympics,
itself.
The injunction was sought to
allow the Colorado Committee to
Retain the Winter Games to
plead its case before the IOC.
They feel optimistic about raising
the necessary money within the
30 day period. Even so, the
Denver Olympic Organizing
Committee (DOOC) feels the
games cannot proceed without
finds from Denver and the entire
State of Colorado as well.
Featuring a quick fast break,
Ashland High basketball will get
off to a running start tonight at
the annual Jamboree held at
Ashland.
"Koseburg is the team to beat
this year," said Assistant Coach
Dick Kromminga. This seems to
be consensus opinion. With 6-7
Rich Parsons leading the way,
Roseburg does look tough.
Medford and Klamath Falls
both came up short on talent but
are to be highly respected be
cause of outstanding coaching. Al
