MONDXY, AUGUST, M, Olson Will Have to Catch Castellani TeeTolk- And Most Believe Bobo Will Do It; Too »T HARRY GRATSOK NEA Sport* Editor SAN FRANCISCO — (NEA) — It must s«em itrtnge to Rocky Castellani. Here he is ready for t crack at Bobo Olson and the world middleweight ohampioinship tnd nothing hae gone wrong — yet. In fact, it is the oth*r way vi T I around.

It wa* Naiman'i $136,000 guarantee to Olson which insured the match. Old Jack Kearni showed the Cleveland wrecking company owner how to do business quickly and waa brought in as an adviior. The match ha* been fivtn a ton of publicity. The gladiators had th* finest training cahips you ever saw. The result is an advance sale of more than 1130.000, »o the thing should do $360,000 at the spacious Cow Palace, including the telecasting and broadcasting money, with. the local area blacked out, Aug. 20.

The Tigers opened the game by scoring two runs without getting a hit. Slayton led off with a walk and scored when Simmons let Moore's grounder go between his legs with Moore going all the way to third base, Moore then scored when Holt let loose with a wild pitch. In the top Of the third fee Tigers picked up another run. Moore walked, stole second and went to third on another wild pitch. • After Wyatt had struck out, Huffman lashed a hard single to score Moore. After Huffman stole second, Lutz walked and then stole an extra base. Hall struck out but Coach Foster decided that Holt had pitched from catching to do the, pitching. Nelson then walked Kelly to load the bases but got Jarrett on an easy roller to end the inning. The Eagles got their only run in the bottom of the third. After Grtffen had flied out, Fitzgerald got on ba*e when Slayton juggled his ground ball. Then Slayton let Holt's roller go" between his legs with Fitzgerald going all the way to 3rd and Holt to second base. Fitzgerald then the inning. The Tigers added one more run in the fourth when Slayton walked, stole second, went to third on a wild pitch, and scored when Moore grounded out. Being held to only two hits for five innings despite a 4-1 lead, the Tigers found their batting eye in the sixth. After that out, successive hits by Slayton, Moore, and Wyatt produced two runs. Wyatt next scored on a passed ball. Huffman scored the last run for the day when, after drawing a -walk, he stole two bases and came home on a wild pitch.

Thi* h»ndicapper looks for the Hawaiian-Portuguese- Swede's finishing kick to catch Castellani and stop him toward the end of the scheduled 16 round*. On styles Castellani is in trouble. The Luzerne, Pa.. Italiano, now fighting out of Cleveland, is strictly a light-hitting hit-and run artist sarcastically labeled ii: a good man in the clutch." He prefers to fleet-foot it around tht ring and then lunge in with a right-hand when he fefcls up to it. Otherwise. he clinches when cornered or hit with reasonable force. The latter move, by the way, i§ the only reason why Oftstellani hai not been bombed out more than the two times it ha* happened in eight years. He hat a China-type chin, but hangs on fiercely until recouped when belted solidly. * * * Olson, the methodical three-minute-a-round man, Ca*- .tellani will experience' difficulty making those tactics work. The suntanned young man from Honolulu is a concerted and hurting, if not a devastating, puncher. He has the greater speed, is the superior all- round fighter who improved with the winning of the crown. He'll slow down Castellani with body punches. What makes everything running smoothly going into the title shot out of the ordinary to Castellani is his memories of what happened to him every other time he hetrd the words mentioned. On the threshold, he was knocked out unexpectedly after which his then handler. Tommy Ryan, was barred for taking punches at the referee and Matchmaker Al Weill. He was ruled out of the championship picture for making like a boxing sandman. Then along came Al Naiman. Bobo Olson's busy fists now are the only troubles in Rocky Castellani's life. And he isn't going to take any aspirin tablets until he climbs into the ring. AHD HAV£ MO IT OUT, NEXT GQSAT OF OOULO 8E AU&.ZO ROCKY CAiTfiLANI TO £EE MY P1ROUETTE?)

It's a travesty of righteousness, say thos* who poke digits at typewriter keys for a living. They arft merely reflecting the irritation of Pacific Coast Conference coaches. You don't have to be told that the character builders don't like the limitation*. They don't cotton to restrictions of any kind ... at any time, which is precisely why the grand old college game got out of hand. Coast coaches have a legitimate beef, however, because limited practice unfairly shackles them in competition with the Big Ten. * * * Western Conference institutions are allowed 20 days of spring work. Even so there have been practice cutbacks in the midwest. Until the last couple of years, indoor practice started in February for freshmen and outdoor drills ended shortly before June graduation exercises. California coaches who usually wind up in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day point out that they are being given a bad count. The presi- dents of conference schools write the rules. The California members must abide by the vote of non- Golden State conference presidents. President Bob Sproul of California and Chancellors Raymond Allen of UCLA and Fred Fagg of Southern California are merely outvoted by the presidents up north. * * * One suggestion is to use a little of the league's share of the Rose Bowl to send the presidents of the Universities of Washington, Oregon and Idaho and Washington State and Oregon State to witness the annual Big Ten slaughter of the Pacific Coast Conference in Pasadena. Being human and highly conservative, the northern educators would not be able to stand the bloodshed. They therefore might be a bit more understanding in future meetings with their California colleagues in regard to liberal football practice regulations. Either that, or tiie Pacific Coast Conference should call off the intersectional rivalry altogether, contends one California writer. He obviously finds reporting re peated executions of fine California youths becoming increasingly difficult, blinded as he is with tears every New Year's Day.
