GAMES BEGIN FOR GLORY OF SOCIALISM
Less than a week after the formal closing of the Summer Games, Friendship 84, Moscows answer to the Los Angeles Olympics, formally opened today with the lighting of a giant torch, an array of Politburo members and a sea of youthful gymnasts tumbling and marching under national colors. For the record, Nikolai Rusak, the chief referee of the games, insisted at a news conference that Friendship 84 could not be considered an alternative to the Los Angeles Games. But this explanation somewhat resembled the Soviet insistence that its refusal to attend the Olympics in Los Angeles was not a boycott, and everything from the symbols at the opening ceremony to comments by athletes and the press left litle doubt that the goal of these games was to challenge Los Angeles not only athletically but also ideologically and politically as well. Pravda, the Government newspaper, was blunt in declaring the goal: The Friendship 84 competitions in Moscow will yet again demonstrate not only sporting achievements but also that Socialist society provides more favorable facilities for the human beings all-round physical and spiritual development.

When its all over, one recalls a pleasurable experience without having a clue to what really was going on. The film will be shown at the Festival Theater today at 6 P.M. and on Thursday at 8:30 in the New Directors/New Films series.

Protege Ends Kasparovs 15-Year Chess Reign
The 15-year reign of Garry Kasparov, considered by many people the greatest chess player of all time, ended today when he was overwhelmed by the bravura performance of a lanky young Russian who was once his protege. The tenure ended quietly and without fanfare, with the 15th game of the 16-game championship match here fizzling to a draw after nearly four hours of play. The draw gave the challenger, Vladimir Kramnik, 25, the half point that he needed to gain 8.5 points to Mr. Kasparovs 6.5, and to win a contest that he had clearly controlled from the beginning..
