Olsnn Cassady Undecided on Pro Career NEW YORK m — All America Howard (Hopalong) Cassady will not decide until he graduates from Ohio State next June whether he'll play professional football or baseball for a livelihood. "I won't sign until the end of the baseball season," said the 21-year old back who lugged the ball 958 yar'ds and scored 15 touchdowns in leading Ohio State to its second straight Big Ten title. "I'm eligible for another year of baseball. II I do well and the scouts come around, maybe It will be baseball. I really don't know which sport I like best. ' He is a center fielder and hit .327 last spring but it was foot- ball that brought him and his coach Woody Hayes to the big city. Cassady received the Heisman Trophy last night as the outstanding player of 1955 at a dinner attended by 800 at the Downtown Athletic Club. Cassady has been drafted by the Detroit Lions of the National Football League but hasn't had any definite baseball offers. This scheduled 15-round battle brings together a 27-year-old Olson who was flattened last summer by Archie-Moore,trying an upward climb and a 35-year-old Robinson at the peal: of a questionable come- Trabert Hits Pro Tennis Trail With Gonzales Tonight NEW YORK W)—Tony Trabert, No. 1 man among the amateurs this year, launches his professional tennis career tonight at Madison Square Garden with the Dick (Pancho) Gonzales, king of the pros, furnishing the opposition in the first of some 100 mr.tches to be played in a worldwide tour. Rex Hartwig, one of Australia's lesser lights, also makes his debut against little Pancho Segura but it is the Trabert-Gomales rivalry that promoter Jack Kramer is relying on to pull the fans through the turnstiles. Trabert, winner of the French, Wimbledon and U.S. titles in 1955, reportedly deserted the amateur ranks for an 580,000 guarantee Gonzales, 1948-49 U.S. amateur titleholder and best of the pros since gave up playing for promotion, is said to be collecting about 525,000. There is little to choose in their ages or styles. Trabert is 25. Gon- at 10 p.m., EST. The chief reason for this International Boxing Club-sponsored bout is that Olsin lost considerable prestige in his third-round KO by light heavy champion Moore .last June 22 and that Robinson made Rav Robinson zales 27. Both feature the "big game." Gonzales has had more experience on indoor courts. Kramer has promised the winner a S25-, 000 bonus and a crack '"^x* v at Australia's Lew Hoad providing the latter tui:is pro.

Feb. quick return from an erstwhile song-and-dance career. Olson was knocked out as a 22- year-old rookie by Robinson in 1950 n 12 rounds at Philadelphia, and dropped a 15-round decision to him in a 1952 middleweight title bout at San Francisco. Olson was regarded a terrific battler until he tried to match blows last summer with Moore. In the second of his six comeback fights. Robinson nearly was chased back into retirement by r.alph (Tiger) Jones at the Chi- igo Stadium last Jan .19. But Sugar Ray, who abdicated the 160-pound crown Dec. 18, 1952, clawed back into contention with victories over Johnny Lombardo, Ted Olla, Garth Panter and Rocky Castellanl. That set up tonight's battle even though Robinson has not fought since winning over. Castellan! 10 last July 22 and Olson has been idle since a slim decision over Joey Giambra last Aug. 26. Truman Gibson, secretary of the IBC, said it appeared a crowd of about 10,000 would pay $140,000 into the stadium tills. Another S75,- 000 will come from TV-radio fees. Olson gets a 35 per cent hunk of all revenue, against 25 per cent for Robinson. If Robinson defeats Olson, a contract held by Bobo's manager Sid Flaherty calls for rematch in 90 days.
