For two-time Olympic champion Dick Button, promoting professional figure skating competitions is a labor of love. How else could someone who has been involved in the sport for half a century sit at rinkside in the Forum one afternoon this week and call the waning moments of an ice dance practice session "thrilling?" Involved in the organization of professional competitions of one sort or another for 20 years, Button's next production will be tonight at 7:30 at the Forum.

A third-inning line drive off the bat of the Texas Rangers' Gary Redus broke the right wrist of right-hander Mark Clark, the Cleveland Indians' winningest pitcher. The wrist will be in a cast for the next four to six weeks. The Indians did not estimate when Clark (11-3) might return. * It looked more like a game in Philadelphia than one in Moosic, Pa., home of the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre triple-A affiliate of the Phillies.

On Saturday, the British Amateur Athletic Board had been instructed by the International Amateur Federation to ban Budd for at least a year for her participation in a cross-country meet in South Africa. Further, the IAAF threatened to ban the entire British federation if the British board failed to carry out the suspension.

It also invited the three to appear before its legal committee to discuss the incident. "We're not guilty," Krabbe said Sunday.

The athletic fate of runner Zola Budd will be determined today by the International Amateur Athletic Federation when its council meets in private session.
