to PAMPA BA1LY NEWS SUNDAY* MARCH I, 1959 51st Yeaf It has been a great relief to learn that Mickey Mantle will get enough money this season to feed and clothe his ; ! family. I, like many other baseball fans, have been sitting up | nights worrying that Mickey might have to muddle through; on a mere $72,000 or so. j But now, it appears that justice has been done — that Mantle will get a living wage of about $80,000. To the groat surprise of practically nobody, Mantle and the Yankees~came to terms this weekend, in a meeting filled j with sweetness and light. In fact, both Mantle and the Yan-j kees general manager George Weiss would have put the oily-1 tounged Mr. Mikoyan to shame when it came to passing out bouquets. . ' "I'm happy to say Mickey is in the fold," said Weiss.: "Just say I'm happy," Wintered Mantle, "and I hope I have. a big year." ,, : So Mantle got his §3,000 raise, the Yankees got a mil-; lion dollars worth of free publicity, we sports writers got 1 some good copy to fill our pages with, and everybody's I happy. i Other Holdouts Are Logical at first glance, since if Jensen is CELTICS SET RECORDS WITH 173-139 VICTORY BOSTON (UPI) — It wag all jvery simple, according to Boston Celtics coflch Red Auerbach. And lha way ho explained his team's Women's Golf Meeting Set The first meeting of the Women's Golf Association this year will be a coffee, to be held March 19 at 10 a.m. at the Country Chub, for old and new members. Anyone who is interested is invited to the coffee. The Panhandle officers meeting will be held at Huber Country Club, Borger, Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. The association's project for the past year was the buying of 10 benches, which will be placed on the golf course. This and other was attending the contest and "he matters were discussed at the'was satisfied" with the perform fantastic performance, it sounded simple—but it wasn't. "We've had many 40-point quar ters before. We, Just happened to have four of 'em in one game," Auerbach chuckled. Actually, the Celtics seofed 46-13-38-55 to beat the Minneapolis Lakers by the astronomical score of 173-139 at the Garden Friday. Seven new league records were set. The Boston coach was somewhat nettled at remarks made by National Basketball Association President Maurice Podoloff in New York, who said he would ask officials of both teams today whether defensive assignments were faithfully carried out or whether the teams were "goofing off." "Minneapolis did not quit," Auerbach said emphatically. "And I'm not interested In what Podo- loff comments.' 1 Auerbach noted (hat Jocko Collins, supervisor of NBA referees, Everything was so satisfactory that Mickey didn't even have to sign a paper saying he has been a bad boy and he won't do it again. And after all the nasty things that Casey Stengel said about the poor, misunderstood boy! While the Mantle travesty is a horrible example of one type of holdout, there have been many holdouts with more justification. Jackie Jensen, for example, end the league's most valuable player he should be the highest payed player in his league, or at least on his team. But that reasoning is based on the fiction that players are paid for what they do. Actually, they're paid for the fans they draw. Mantle and Williams,' the league's big drawing cards, naturally draw more money than anyone else. , Sometimes a holdout is staged ed his holdout, with a lot 1 ess ;for reasons other than mo ney.

It was just one of those things. We just couldn't stop them." Tommy Heinsohn, Boston's high scorer Friday with 43 points, was modest about his .contribution. He said that Bob Cousy "was the most responsible. On many occasions we just tried to set him up and everything went just right, everything jelled. It was the finest game I've ever played in." Cousy contributed 28 assists, tory, the Celts cracked four" N§A records: most points in one gam§ by one team, most points in 6nl half, most points in one quartet and the most field goals.

The race is now in a three-way tie. for firat, as Wilson. Austin, and Sam Houston each stand 5-2. Horace Mann is fourth with 4-3; Baker is last at 0-7.
