Background: In and around the 13th-century city of Innsbruck, Austria, preparations and new buildings for the 1964 Olympic Winter Games are well underway.
Dr.Friedl Wolfgang, secretary-general of the Olympic Organizing Committee, points out key areas on a model of the scenic valley where construction is concentrated...
----the Press Center....
----the Skin Jump....
----and the Ice Arena, which will seat 8-thousand spectators...for the speed-skating, figure-skating, and ice hockey events.
The ski runs...(PAUSE)...for the Alpine events.(PAUSE)
The Bergisel Hill.....(PAUSE)....for the eighty-meter skin jump.Hundreds of athletes from more than thirty countries will live in the Olympic Village, comprising eight new apartment houses.
Newsmen reporting the Olympics to a worldwide audience will live in new student dormitories at Innsbruck University...
...nearby to the Press Center for 600 correspondents.
At the University, will be the Data Center, where times and marks from the events will be transmitted by direct wire and, within seconds, computed into official scores.
Dr.Wolfgang and other Olympic officials inspect the International Business Machine plant in Germany where the IBM 1401 RAMAC (Fourteen-oh-one RAM-ACK) computers scoring the Winter Games will be made.Results during and after all events will be produced automatically from the computers' high-speed printers --- for immediate reporting to press and public.
sixty-five thousand spectators on this terraced amphitheater will witness the colorful ceremonies of the 1964 Winter Olympics.
Thanks to electronic communications, on-lookers the world over will be able to know the results from Innsbruck as quickly as if they were there in person.
