BOATING—HARRY SINDLE, Little Falls, N.J. won three races, placed second twice, third twice in Flying Dutchman trials at Clearwater, Fla., earned right to represent U.S. in Olympics.

BOXING—NEW YORK BOXING COMMISSION, in confusing piece of vacillation, first suspended Sugar Ray Robinson for recent Baltimore no-show, then blithely gave blessing to Friday night's two-state ( New York and Massachusetts) middleweight title bout between Champion Paul Pender and Robinson in Boston. Mused capricious Sugar Ray, perhaps greatest vacillator of his time: "It looks like I will have to take some action." WILLIE PASTRANO, light-punching, nimble-footed Miami light heavyweight, flicked and ran to 10-round decision over frustrated Sonny Ray before lonesome 698 (who paid $822) in Chicago. Onetime Heavyweight Contender Pastrano, a master at art of fleeing from danger in ring, prepared to reverse field, said: "I hope I can catch Archie Moore for a title shot."
