NBW YORK. Dec. 19. <AP>major league meetings ended , n ., t week, but there xs'as enough baseball news yesterday to start another convention. The most significant development was the official retirement ol Tommy Hcllrich, one of the great, all-time New York Yankee outfielders. An injured knee forced the 34- year old veteran to hang up one of the game's mast respected gloves Tommy will act as coach with the world champions In 1051. Another brilliant career—that of Marty Marion—may have been extended. The new St. Lou« Cardinals skipper had an operation yesterday on his knee—and doctors said it was a success, and that Marion should be. in condition to play shortstop next spring. So with the knee probably mended, Marion's worries would be cased more if his big batting bertha, Stan Unsial, would come to terms, Musal, the loop's baiting king, thinks : should get a big raise. Mlislal Seeks Raise. "I think I'm entitled lo a substantial raise and I'm going to try and get It." Mnsial said. "No play- ir in the country is worth $100,000, )ut that, doesn't mean I won't ask Vlr. Saigh (president Fred Saighl pr It In 1051." Ed Stanley of the New York Giants was reported to have signed ils 1951 contract. The New York Daily News said the scrappy second baseman inked a pact calling for J30.000, an increase of jib.OOO over last year. Official figures showed that two of Stanley'.; terminates _ pitchers i J ,. Jim Henrn arid Sal Maglie-took I A^ ftflllO top honors among Natoinal League " U S?" C monndsmen. Hearn hung up a!k|| / If smart 2.411 earned run average, i »V / ~ while Maglie posted the highest winning percentage, .818, with hrs 18-4 record. And Branch Rickey—who didn't figure in any pitching records last year—said last night he was "co pelled" to sell his slock in the Brooklyn Dodgers "because I was in debt." but. it illustrates ...„ „„„, ,„ contest that the season records Indicate when Texas and Tennessee cet together in the Dallas New Year's Day classic. The strength of both teams Is defence. Texas in 10 games allowed the opposition only 240.5 yards prr contest. Tennessee was even more miserly.

On the offensive side, however Texas boasts a fair margin The .LonKhnrns marie 287.1 yards per -'" c I same while Tennessee got 2C8 Texas has a halfback named nobby Dillon, who ran back puhis Ml yards. He won several games that way by either makin<r | 0 ,i,, touchdown jaunl.s or setting m, touchdowns. But Dillon hasn't as yet gone up against a team holding down punt returners like Tennessee. The Volunteers gave II opponents just 153 yards in kick run-backs—an average of 145 per'Kiime, Dillon's single returns have averaged 22.2 It is,a strategy of Tennessee to play for the breaks, sit back and let Ihe opposition beat itself. The Vols' pass-inlciTcplion record indicates how well this has worked Tennessee has gathered in 22 of 154 enemy passes thrown—more than a third as many as the opposition completed.
