Kate Schmidt, the women's world-record javelin thrower just reinstated by AAU from a year's suspension, still has a bone to pick -- or a few bones to crack -- with the ruling bodies of U.S. amateur sports:

Schmidt and several other world-class athletes are campaigning for inclusion of a chiropractor, Dr. Leroy Perry Jr. of Pasadena, Calif., on the U.S. medical team for the 1980 Moscow Olympics.

"Most athletes compete in pain... a lot of trauma and pain," Wilhelm (winner of CBS-TV's Strongman competition) said. "Dr. Perry would help alleviate the pain without giving us any pain-killers."

Locally, the Maryland Podiatry Association has scheduled a sports medicine seminar at the Silver Spring Holiday Inn on March 31 (no chiropractors on the panel). The association, noting attendance of 500 at its first such seminar in 1977, invites the public to the 1:30-5 p.m. portion, free, with presentations from, besides medical experts, Redskin quarterback Joe Theismann...

In Portland, Ore., Stanford swimmer Kim Peyton, 22, of the U.S. gold-medal relay team at Montreal '76, was scheduled for brain surgery yesterday -- canceled at the 11th hour. Her mother said, "The brain scan last night showed something highly unusual -- that the tumor appears to be shrinking. We took her home and she's going swimming this afternoon"...

Tara Heiss, the 1978 Maryland basketball All-America keeping sharp for the Olympic trials, plays with Carol Blazejowski and other big names in an allstar game at New York's Madison Square Garden tonight. Then on April 1, Heiss and current Terrapins Betsy Bailey, Kris Kirchner and Jane Zivalich compete in the Pan American Games trials in Knoxville, Tenn. Another in Knoxville will be 5-7 Pearl Moore of Francis Marion College, Florence, S.C., fresh from breaking not only Blaze's women's records but the men's career college scoring mark. Moore finished with 4,061 points (35 a game for four years), beating the 4,045 posted by Travis Grant of Kentucky State, 1969-72...

Dana Kirk, leaving Virginia Commonwealth U. to coach at Memphis State, says he looks forward to many winning seasons with the Tigers. Didn't he say the same on arriving in Richmond three years ago? Anyway, as they say, "he turned the program around."
