Letter to Lord Killanin, President, International Olympic Committee. The letter says we call your attention to the enclosed materials relating to protests by the Black American community to the presence of South African athletes in American tennis competition; we urge that this action on the part of the International Lawn Tennis Federation and the US Tennis Association not be permitted to jeopardize the approaching Olympics games scheduled for 1980 in Moscow. The letter discusses the International Lawn Tennis Federation (ILTF) and the United States Tennis Association (USTA).
