Dear Mr. Buck,

Following the United States Olympic Committee's appeal against the decision in the Basketball Final in Munich, between the USSR and the United States, the Executive Board has discussed this matter and has unanimously come to the decision that this is a technical question, outside the competence of the Executive Board (see rule 40) and the responsibility of the Federation Internationale de Basketball Amateur.


Yours sincerely,

/Signature/

Lord Killanin

President
