Because of DODDS-Europe’s “39-point rule,” which instructs coaches to alter scores before reporting them to the newspaper, Stars and Stripes will cease publishing results of DODDS-Europe athletic events unless it can independently verify the information.

We regret that we have been forced to take this course of action, but our readers must know above all that the information they read in Stars and Stripes is accurate.

The newspaper will again publish scores and results gleaned from outside sources representing DODDS-Europe when it is satisfied this information is not being manipulated in any way.
