Byrd's.Eye View By U.S. 8engtor Robert C. Byrd Sports and Sacrifices The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan has prompted the United States to seek the transfer, postponement, cancellation or boycott of the Moscow Summer Olym- pic Games. Ideally, the Olympics should be above politics, but, in fact, the Games have been politicized by nationalistic displays on many occasions -- most notably in 1936 when Hitler used the Berlin Games to propagandize the Nazi war machine. American attendance at the Summer Olympics would allow the Russians to duplicate the Nazis' charade, aml would lend respectability to the So- viets' armed aggression in a neighboring country. American withdrawal from the Moscow Games would be keenly felt by the Soviets. It would be even more difficult to explain to file average Russian, who may not hear through state-controlled news of the world's outrage over Af- gimnistan. The Soviets are counting on the Olympics to serve as a showcase for, and to briner prestige and legiti- macy to, their Communist country. The U.S. Senate has ap- proved overwhelmingly a resolution calling for the Unid States to boycott the Olympics regardless of whether Soviet troops with- draw from Mghanistan. The resolution goes a step further than the President's proposal of a boycott if the Russians are not out of Afghanistan by Feb. 20, an event considered unlikely. The Senate resolution also calls for the creation of a permanent home for the Summer Games in Greece, where the Olympics began in 776 B.C., and a permanent home for the Winter Games in a neutral country, such as Switzer- land or Austria. Many U.S. athletes have trained countless hours dur- ing several years in preI- aration for the games, and their sacrifice will be great if an alternate site or al- ternate games cannot be arranged in time. But, let us not forget the sacrifice of the American hostages in Tehran and their families a sacrifice that the Soviet Union ig- nored when it vetoed United Nations economic sanctions against Iran. The 600,000 Afrhans who have been driven from their homes by the ruthless So- viet invasion are also mak- ing sacrifices, as is Nobel Peace Laureate Andre Sak- harov, who was exiled by the Soviets for his criticism of his country's action. These sacrifices should be kept in mind as the United States contemplates a fitting response to the Soviets' adventurtsm. Pepsi's Got A Lot To Give bottled by Pepsi-Cola. Inc, of Alderson, W. Va. under authority of Pepsico, N. Y. By Bill- Dressier We have, at one time or another, had a dog that was the pet of the family. They were loved and cared for as a mem- ber of the family. This was the same love that we had for our pet dog Marnie. He was an English Shepherd and he had long, black hair with a ring of long white hair around his neck and down his chest. He had white hair on his feet and a tip of white on the end of his tail He was so ugly, when he was a pup, that your friend, who had given him to our family, called him "Skunk Face". He was marked in every way, with soft, curly, brown hair, lhat resembled a skunk. When he matured, he grew into a beautiful, grace- ful English Shepherd dog. He had one distinct feature and that was his left ear. It never stood up m a point as his right ear, but it always flopped over. Marnie came to our home through the kindness of our friend, Mr. C.J. "Jim" Lilly, who clerked wtih me at the Hinton C&O Yard Office. Our daughter, Jeanie, had a beau- tiful German Shepherd dog that was killed by a truck, and I was trying to find her another dog to ease her sorrow. "Jim" Lilly told me that his sister, Carol. who lived in Charleston, W. Va., was telling him that a pretty white collie had been killed by a car, and that she had left four puppies in the field which was close to lmr home. She was trying to find homes for these puppies, and "Jim" told her that we would take one of these puppies. This is how Marnie became a member of our fam- ily. Every member of our family loved him, but my wife claimed him for her dog. She trained him to shake hands, and he dearly loved to ride in our ear over to the Dairy Queen to eat a cone of ice cream. He watched every move that the girl clerks made in preparing his cone of cream. My wife and our three children always took him riding with them every Sunday af- ternoon. They were driving along the highway one summer afternoon and the car windows were down. Mantle saw a herd of cattle and he immediately tried to jump through the open window to chase the cattle. Our daughter, Kloris, grabbed him by his hips and pulled him back into the car. After that incident, the family had to keep the car windows up to prevent him from jumping out of the car and being killed. He loved to swim and bring sticks back to us that we threw in New River which was below our camp at Barksdale. tie also loved to run up and down the bottom which was along New River, and he always kept the members of our family in his sight One day our daughter, Jeanie, went swimming with her friends in the pool at Bass Lake Park. which is just ab- ove our camp at Barksdale. The girls walked from the camp up to the pool to swim and Mar- nie decided to follow them. My wife let him out of the camp a little later and he ran as fast as of the pool!" ne children in the his legs would hit the ground in pool were screaming, and they order to catch up with Jennie were frantically trying to swim and the girls. They were swim- out of the pool. Jeanie had to ming in the middle of the pool take Marnie out of the pool and when Marnie saw them. He take him. back to the camp crawled under the fence, that where they kept him on a leash surrounded the pool, and swam until they finished their swim. toward them. One girl shouted, Marnie was also a guard for with our dog Marnie. Sudden ly, a hound dog jumped out fr: under a nearby house and att emptyed to bite Grant.
