Frick admitted today tha baseball's radio arid.television d lemma was ;as,acute as 'ever lo lowing a rebuff by the Departmen of Justice'of a plan that woul haye<- : given the sport "grouni worlc""to follow in formulating a definite policy on radio and TV. Prick's remarks highlighted tb opening activities of the. ma jo league baseball .meetings during which the club owners elected an nual officers, discussed the pro posed amendments and were in formed of the results of a fact finding survey on baseball. The commissioner's announce ment", made yesterday at a press conference called for the purposi of distributing a nine-page sum mary of the survey by the Stephen Fitzgerald Company, completely overshadowed the survey's find ings. Test Case Proposed "We talked with the Departmen! of Justice and proposed a test case which would have given basebal ground rules to follow in dissemination of games by radio and television," Frick said. "At first they were agreeable, to |^! proposal but a week ago last Friday (Nov.-25) they said they had reconsidered and were opposed lo it." "We had an idea and it didn't work out," he ^aid. "We'll- have to come up with something else." Frick did not go into details regarding the majors' proposal to the government but it was believed the plan called for restriction oi telecasts and broadcasts of big league games outside a club's home territory limit of 50 miles. The majors had planned to offset that by telecasting a "game of the week" over a national channel. This plan, if consummated, would have brought in $3,000,000, half of which was to have been ticketed to the minors. That proposal, too, reportedly was rejected by the Justice Department. Half Favors Blackout For years, the minors have been urging the commissioner to undertake a test case on radio and TV but fear of the Justice Department's interpretation of "conspiracy and collusion" has held Frick back. "It's almost impossible to pass a minor-major league rule," Frick said, "because that is construed as collusion." The problem of .harnessing radio and'television broadcasts also was an important item on the baseball survey. A total of 20,000 interviews, including a canvass by. the Associated Press, were sampled at a cost of ?6,000, plus expenses. They showed that about half of those interviewed wculd favor a radio- TV blackout if baseball was being threatened by the telecasts and 37 per cent would be willing to pay a nominal fee (25-50 cents) to view games on a "pay as you see" plan. The survey also showed that 69 per cent felt radio and television of baseball increased interest in the game. There was a definite feeling that telecasting of the games in minor league areas was harmful to the minors' attendance. Sooners Eight-Point Choice Over Terps In Dunkel Rating By DICK DUNKEL DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Special)—With seven of the nation's Top Ten participating—including all of the first five— : the coming New Year's bowl games will have a real championship flavor. .The only Top Ten members lef * ;—: out.are No. 6 Ohio State and No. Southern California, who are in eligible, and No. 10 Texas. The latter received no invitation, prob ably because of its 5-5 record. This year's bowl promoters made their selections so wisely that they achieved a neatly balanced lisCo attractions. That is, the Orange Rose, and Cotton spectacles wil jresent the* most highly ratec :eams, but the Gator, Sugar anc Tangerine affairs, may come through with the closest and most exciting contests.

Gator Bowl, Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 31—No. 18 Vanderbilt (98.6) ating only three-tenths of a point verNo. 21 Auburn (98.3). Auburn's -1-1 record is better than Vandy's -3. Vanderbilt's slightly higher 'ower Index is based, of course, n comparative average perform- nces for the entire season, where- n the Commodores gained a heavy dvantage in defeating Tulane by wo touchdowns while Auburn lost o the Greenies by the same mar- in. In all other comparisons, Luburn averages a narrow edge ver Vanderbilt. Red Raiders Choice Sun Bowl, Ei Paso, Texas, Jan. —Texas Tech (86.2), Border Con- erence champion, rating 8 points ver Wyoming (78.0).

During the same span Missouri Valley has lost only two contests, and is 8-1 on the 1955 record. The letter's only loss this year was a 14-6 decision to McMurry. The Power Index shows average scoring difference relative to rat- ing=T3f opposition. The higher rating team won in 77.6 percent ol 1,837 games, exclusive of ties, covering this season. Last year the percentage was 77.3 in 1,840 games Pittsburgh (Continued from Page 13) Today the players are smarter and neater. They dress like successful young businessmen.
