Former baseball commissioner and California gubernatorial candidate Peter Ueberroth has been appointed chairman of the U-S Olympic Committee's new board of directors.

Ueberroth will lead the eleven-person volunteer board in setting U.S.O.C. policy and overseeing its finances.

The 66-year-old formerly led the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics to a record profit.

The announcement comes two months before the start of the Summer Games in Athens, and more than a year after ethics charges against
the U.S.O.C. 's former chief executive prompted a congressional
³investigation.

That person later resigned along with seven other leaders.

A restructuring plan was approved last October when the U.S.O.C. board voted itself out of existence and dissolved the executive committee.
