Judge Hears Civil Action Against NFL PHILADELPHIA tm — U. District Court Judge Allan K. today had under advisf il suit brought against the National Football League and nine its clubs. Judge Grim heard oral argi Wednesday on the bankrupt Liber- roadcasting System, Inc., , for $2, 100, 000 damages. The suit filed by William Rocheile Jr., trustee for the radio network, on behalf of Liberty' editors, contends that Liberty lost $700,000 from 1948 to 1954 be- i the league restricted ; television and radio broadcasts of games. Under antitrust la' plaintiff can collect triple damages if it wins an antitrust civil sun. NFL attorneys have argued that claims for damages by a firm are not transferable to a trustee in bankruptcy and that the alleged *ges occurred prior to the petition of bankruptcy. They also argued that the court is no jurisdiction and that the league and its clubs were not engaged in trade and commerce within the meaning of antitrust laws and that broadcasting and telecasting was "merely incidental'' to the football game. In the government's antitrust suit against the NFL two years ago. Judge Grim luled that professional football league's sanctions on radio broadcasts \ illesral. He upheld the right of the league to lestrict television in t home aieas of a team playing home game.

Babe Ruth hung up his spikes for good. He had played his last game May 30 against the Philadelphia Phillies. He went to bat only once and did nothing, so he retired to the clubhouse. That was the last time the Babe's name appeared in a major league box score-He was with the Boston Braves at the time as vice-president, assistant manager and sometimes— player. His sight was failing and he was hitting only .181 when the end came. It came slowly, though. It wasn't until three days later. June 2, that Ruth officially ended his baseball career — and he was beaten to the punch. Officially, he quit. But he admitted later that he was fired by Judge Emil Fuchs, president of the Braves. Standing m the clubhouse, he told a boy to ask Fuchs to come see him. He told the boy to inform Fuchs he was quitting. H« had gone as far as he couia. A few minutes later, some news- men trooped the clubhouse and Babe asked them what was up. Thev said they were sorry and ne asked them why. They told him he had been fired. "So I got fired before I could quit," he said later. CORRECTION The telephone number f»f George Covert was incorrectly listed yesterday.
