Sugar Is Sweet as Actor By GENE HANDSAKER HOLLYWOOD (AP) - "The guy's good," a supporting actor muttered, admiringly from the sidelines. Star Ben Gazzara: "That was beautiful, Ray." . Director Leo Penn: "Beautiful, Sugar." Thus Sugar. Ray Robinson, ex- welterweight champion, five times middleweight king, completed a scene in his new career —acting. He guest-stars as a fighter in a segment of television's "Run For Your Life." In the low-key sequence he lies in a hospital bed, comatose after a ring beating, mumbling dialogue with Gazzara. ; Yes, said Sugar, donning a tan bathrobe during a break, he has retired for good from box- Ing. "1 love this, love performing," he said. "I'm a ham at heart. I've been hi front of cameras for years, in the ring and on the air in interviews after fights." * •' * Robinson, virtually unmarked from his ring career, is 45. Next he flies to Spain, for a feature, "Egghead on Hill 56," then returns here for a Western, "Chuka," written by star Rod Taylor. He has had other offers. None of tfie .roles are .as fighters. "That's what I'm so happy about. I don't think I can prove anything as a fighter." Except for a "Car 54, Where Are You?" this is Robinson's first acting. He never lias had a drama lesson. * * * Said Sugar: "I made a whole lot in fighting, between three and four million, and I wish I had it now. A lot went to taxes, and the gov- erment owes me a half million. I won the case but haven't got the money yet." He owns real estate in Harlem, Chicago and Cleveland. He looks forward to spending six or eight months a year on the West Coast. He and his second wife, Millie, have a home in New York City and an apartment in Los Angeles. Robinson has made a television pilot on physical fitness and hopes to find a sponsor, featuring each week a different exercise.

By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) - Faster transit could add billions to the economy in the years just ahead. City after city, and region after region, are involved :n direct spending for speedy moving of ever larger crowds in metropolitan areas. Some projects are already under way, and still more are in the planning and research stages. Beyond this, supplying the equipment for all the new commuter transit systems, and the short-run shuttles between cities, will boost sales of a dozen or more industries, add to job totals and corporate profits. Capital expenditures for the projected rapid transit systems and equipment could come to $12 billion in the next 10 years. The projects run all the way from extensions and speedups of more conventional transit systems — exampla: Cleveland is inking its business district with the airport—to such test projects as a computerized aerial electric system in Pittsburgh and jet propelled railroad engines tested in Ohio for high speed shuttles between eastern population centers. Railroad equipment producers stand to be big gainers from the 34 projects now in varying stages from planning to actual construction. Among the many companies now building or-designing components for the rapid-transit systems are: United Aircraft, Pullman, U.S. Steel, Alcoa, Westinghouse, General American Transportation, and General Electric. The federal .government has authorized $90 million to study a rapid transit system linking Boston, New York and Washington. Over the long range this could multiply to several billion in expenditures. The San Francisco Bay area has a 75-mile subway and tran sit network under way with costs around $1 billion. Other rail commuter projects incude Jqston, Washington, Los An- jeies, Baltimore, Atlanta, and Cleveland. Planning is under way in Chicago, Detroit and tew York. The Pennsylvania lailroad will test a bigh speed track linking Trenton and New Brunswick, N.J. The New York Central is talking of high-speed shuttle expresses between big reputation centers to replace ong-run passenger service. Why all the hurry just now? Well, statisticians say that with- n five years three-fourths of the entire U.S. population will be iving in urban areas and the number of vehicles onthe public roads and streets will soar to more than 100 million. With fte population growing •apidly; all'those people have to 3e moved from here to there— and maybe new and far-out rapid transit systems are the answer. NEWS BRIEFS MADISONVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Diesel fuel caught fire in a Louisville & Nashville Railroad engine at Hanson recently, about five miles from here.

(AP) The state and federal governments are splitting the cost of a $30,000 study of ways to improve garbage collection and disposal in Kentucky.

Smithers, state assistant director of environmental lealth. HOME ON FURLOUGH. Seaman iary Wayne Hopper is spending a short furlough with his parents, Thomas Hopper of 405 Stemac Drive and Mrs. W.

(AP) — The City Council plans to apply for $200,000 in federal aid, and put up $100,000 itself, to build a garbage heap 60 feet tall. As explained by Roland E.

The proposed project would take three years to complete. HOUSTON, Tex.
