Spitz’s Home Daubed with Swastika

A three-foot high swastika was pointed yesterday on the garage door of Mark Spitz, the former Olympic swimming champion, at his West Los Angeles home, police said today. They described the incident as an “act of vandalism with racial overtones.” The 27-year-old Spitz, who gained fame as a winner of seven gold medals at the 1972 Munich Olympics, was out of town. According to police, there have been no reports of earlier vandalism at Spitz’s home.
