Trabert Won't Go Pro Until Next Davis Cup HOUSTON (AP) — Tony Trabert, looking more each day like the heir apparent to Vic Seixas 1 national tennis championship, says he won't turn pro at least before the next Davis Cup challenge round. Trabert was top-seeded for the 31st annual River Oaks Country Club tournament which started today. He won his fifth straight tournament over Seixas at Dallas yesterday. The husky young star from Cincinnati with the slashing game took out the nationally ranked No. 1 man from invitational tournament. JACK BUCK JOE GARAGIOLA IrMfln t* r*<> by sNHEUSER-IUSCH, INC. ST.

Ash Ph. 3-3125 1 He said he hasn't yet received any "concrete offers," indicating he may choose to stay in the amateur ranks unless an offer is highly attractive. Seixas was seeded second for the River Oaks meet. Hamilton Richardson is third and defending champion Dick Savitt fourth. A year ago Savitt, unseeded and unranked nationally, won the Brooklyn Would Deal Robinson Off; Take' Sign on Blazing Bob By HARK? GKAYSON NBA fputa EUttr NEW YORK — (NBA) — Th« Dodger* would deal J»cki« Robinson ... if they could get anything for him. When Robby had the exchange of words with Walter Alston through baseball writers, a couple of clubs tried to pick him up at a bargain basement rate, proving that there still is a market for the UCLA alumnus at 36. While everything appears sweetness and light on the surface, there remains an aloofness between Robinson and Alston, who is at reticent as his »35,000 a year star is outspoken. Critics claimed that the Brooks did not run enough under Alston, the freshman manager. Those defending Alston u a sound baseball man give you a reason for this. Alston was told so much about the frightening Brooklyn hitters that he sat back waiting for them to swat the ball out of the park, they point out. With Robinson repeatedly hobbled by injuries and Roy Campanula unable to grip the bat, this didn't happen often enough. While the Bums opened the sen- son with six men who hit .300 or more in exhibition games, they are expected to run more this season. . Up from the farms, Alston was Jackie Robinson Bob Turley feeling his way in 1964, and if he required convincing, the earlj brush with Robinson awakened him to the fact that it was time to take charge. To this end, the Robinson-Alston rhubarb probably did some good. • * • THE YANKEES KICKED off the campaign somewhat concerned about Bob Turley, who has to be their big right-hand pitcher if they are to strike back this year. Turley struck out 185 batters last season, but walked 181. and his control in exhibition games hasn't been any better. The "take" sign is on him, which means that batters are going to take a full count. There is only one way for a pitcher to get the "take" sign off him. He has to get & piece of the plate, stay ahead of the hitter. Turley pitches green, which is rather unusual for a right-hander of his potentiality, for the stripping young man out of Troy, 111., had four years in the minors before going into the service and a season and a half in the American League since. Turley acts like a pikher who has been put on a pattern and would like to get away from it and go back to what he does best—rear back and pour the ball past the hitter. When Bob Turley has to let up to get the ball over the plate, it most certainly Is not a foregone conclusion that he's going to win 20 games.

They are Connie Mack Gravitte of the Tar Heels and Connie Mack Butler of Rollins. championship.
