With less than a month to go before the 1956 Olympic Games open, Landy still is undecided about entering. He's been hobbled by a foot injury and has clone little competitive running since his last successful assault on the 4- minute mile, in the United States last summer. Bruised heel tendons scratched Landy. holder of the 3:58 mile record, from the Australian Olympic track trials, but he was named to the team in both the 1,500 and 5,000 meters. Landy needs trial competition now that he is able to run again. But these trials, on which he'll base his decision of whether to enter the games, were banned early in the week by Sir William Bridgeforl, executive director of the games. The ban, set to prevent a "thousand little Olympic Games in the month ahead," was met by strong protests 'from Australian and British runners. Thursday, ihe ban was lifted, giving Landy his chance.

Jim Norris, president of the In temational Boxing Club, gave that estimate Thursday at the lormal contract signing ceremonies. He said the Stadium will be scaled for a $171,000 gate which would set an indoor record if all the 20,015 permanent seats are sold. The record gate is $422.918 for the Tony Kale-Rocky Graziano middleweight championship scrap at the Stadium in 1947. Tickets will range at $5, $7.50, $10, $20 and J30. Moore, the light heavyweight king, and Patterson each will receive 30 per cent of the net receipts, including a $200.000 television-radio melon. The fi;;ht will |je home televised, with the Chicago area (including Milwaukee slid South Bend, Ind.) blacked out, and broadcast nationally. Norris said there was no return bout clause in the conn act "simply because neither fighter is risking anything in seeking Marciano's vacated crown." Moore only missed b e a t i n g j crowd'of 7U19.

CHAMPAIGN, 111. ft— Any hope Illinois has of upsetting Michigan State's top-ranked Spartans Saturday rest with the speed that can be coaxed out of a unit of bandaged backs. Injuries are so prevalent that to hear couch Ray Eliot tell it his team will be taped up like mummies. At last word, however, it was definite that star halfback Harry Jefferson will he out. His ailing knee went lame iit!»in.

MSU won lasl year's inaugural at East Lansing 21-7, and is a 20-point favorite this time. A full schedule of conference games for the first time this season is on tap Saturday and at least two of them are pivotal in Rose Bowl reckoning. They are Iowa at Purdue and Minnesota at Michigan. These four teams are bidding the strongest for the trip since Ohio State and Michigan State are i ineligible this season. ! Wisconsin is at Ohio Stale and!

Pulliam has an edge on Shaw in weight and speed, and both are adept pass catchers in the Tiger offense which so far this season has seen the fullback on the receiving end of as many passes as the rest of the receivers. The Shells are still plagued by injuries, especially in the backfield. Bob Janssen, leading scorer for Roxana, is slill favoring a bad leg, and while he is able to run, one good jolt could put him out of the game, McLane said. Janssen will probably get to play. Howard Heffner, still recuperating from a knee injury, is expected to see only limited action. The big question mark is Larry Longman, who has been sidelined since the second game of the season. McLane said the cast has been taken off the halfback's leg, and a doctor's examination this afternoon will determine whether or not he will play. In a driving rain storm at Ro.sana last year, the' Tigers walked off wilh a 7-6 victory. Gonzales Meets Bahama Tonight NEW YORK ff>— Two eager 23- year-old middle-weights will try to elbow past the old favorites into the top 10 of the division tonight in a Madison Square Garden match between Yama Bahama and Tex Gonzalez. If Bahama, a 3-1 favorite, loses it would be quite a surprise for he had a 23-fight winning streak until he was upset by Pat Lo'wry at Siiginaw, Mich., Aug. 9. Bahama's manager Bobby Nelnick claimed his fighter first was announced as winner but the decision was changed while .he was leaving the park. He hasn't fought since. In 47 fights since 1953, Bahama has a 40-5-2 record with 13 knockouts. He was slopped only once.

Br THE ASSOCIATED PRfNS Detroit still rules the National Hockey .League today, unbeaten in six games, but the question isn't who's to beat the Red Wings. It's what's with Montreal's champion Canadiens? The answer, according to coach Toe Blake of the Canadiens is the officiating. "If the officials aren't out to stop us as the winning team of last season, I'll eat my shirt," he said heatedly Thursday night after the Canadiens lost to the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2. Blake conceded his Stanley Cup champions aren't playing up to par, but said the Maple Leafs got away with holding Montreal players repeatedly. The Toronto victory edged the Maple Leafs two points ahead of the Canadiens, who have won only, two of their six games. Toronto now is a point shy of New York, which fell out of a tie for first while idle as the Red Wings kept the Chicago Black Hawks svinless 3-1. A first NHL goal by rookie Bill McNeil! won for the Red Wings, who have been tied twice. It was a 20-foot sizzler and followed Norm Oilman's third goal of the season for a 2-0 Detroit lead in the first period. Harry Watson got one for the Hawks early in the second period, but Gordie Howe matched it in Ihe same period. Chicago belted Wing goalie shots.
