Tatnm Flies Down«To Sign Bowl Contract COLLEGE PARK, Nov. 18 Coach Jim Tatum of Maryland flew to New Orleans today to r sign a Sugar Bowl contract while his "terrific Terps" stayed home to celebrate yesterday's smashing victory over North Carolina State. Maryland clobbered the Wolf- pack 53 to 0 here yesterday while the Tennessee Vols, their Sugar Bowl opponents, walloped Mississippi 46 to 21., Tatum's Terps have only to conquer West Virginia next Saturday and they will journey to New Orleans for the New Year's Day r contest with an unblemished slate. If the Vols get by Kentucky next Saturday and. Vanderbilt on December 1, they, too, will go into the bowl game undefeated. A defeat for either second ranked Tennessee or fifth rated Maryland would be quite an upset. The Terrapins yesterday completely outclassed the same opponent which last year wrecked their bowl hopes 16 to 13 here at Byrd Stadium. Seven keyed-up young men contributed to the scoring as Maryland extracted its revenge for last year's humiliation. Quarterback Jack Scarbath and Ed iMighty Mo) Modzelewski, bruising 210-pound fullback, scored two touchdowns each.. Linebacker Ed Kensler, Ralph Felton, a halfback; Left End Lloyd Colteryahn and Halfback Ed Fullerton also crossed the goal line. Don Decker kicked five of eight conversion attempts. Mighty Mo Mighty For the fifth time this season, Modzelewski outgained the. opposing team's combined rushing offense. "Mighty Mo" netted 89 y%rds in 11 tries. State gathered only 40 yards on the ground. Ralph Felton, 185-pound sophomore from Midway, Pa., was the offensive leader, netting 186 yards in 13 attempts. On the line it was Dick Mod- -.zelewski (Little Mo) 230-pound ·I tackle and brother of "Mighty · MO." I "He played one of the greatest games at tackle I have ever seen," said North Carolina State's coach Beattie Feathers. Dick accounted for at least a dozen tackles on his own. It was the eighth straight 1951 Jiriumph for Maryland, and it "stretched their consecutive winning string to ten. The crushing _ conquest posed an all-time scoring r record for Maryland grid teams. It gave the Terps 299 points against eight opponents, a total of 25 points more than they tallied against 10 teams last year. Grid Scores ^ By The Associated Press East Penn, 7; Army, 6.

Major League Pitchers Had Better Year NEW YORK -- ( N E A ) -- There were seven 20-game winners among major-league pitchers in 1949, five in '50 and 13 last trip. More might have entered what has come to be known as the select circle in '51, but with the races breathlessly tight, extra pressure took its toll. Eight nudged the upper strata bagging from 16 to 19. Does this mean that the spolight is off the lively ball and back on the pitcher again? "Baseball is in a transition period," says Tom Sheehan, the old pitcher scouting for the Giants. "The tempo is moving back to the pre-Ruthian era. The stress on hitting and pitching is being equally divided." Jack Coffey does not buy that explanation. , "Practically everyone is up there swinging blindly from the boot tops," asserts the long time shortstop who is Fordham's athletic director. "Little iguys like Phil Rizzuto aim for the distant stands. "One run doesn't decide games any more. Now they shoot for the bushel basketful." Coffey cites Stanley Musial as a striking illustration of the exception to the modern rule. When Jackie Robinson shaded him for the batting championship in" '49, Stan the Man. who had 36 that season, decided he was thinking more of his home-run total than hitting' safely, particularly with men on base. So the Cardinal luminary stopped trying to pull balls that couldn't be pulled, and once more concentrated ori meeting the ball and keeping the defense honest. Average Tumbles Ted Williams, as great as he is at the Fenway Park plate, would get even better results if he'd quit firing at the right-field bull pen and bleachers. The immortal Tyrus Raymond Cobb wrote Williams a letter urging him to switch his feet and hit the ball to all fields. There is no question but that the rise in the number of 20-game winners last season was because there was altogether too much' heavy artillery intent, too little small arms fire. And H has been conclusively demonstrated--by the Giants' 211 Club of '47, particularly--that the long ball has to be ably complemented to bring an outfit down in front. A batting average invariably tumbles when the hitter gets the home-run gleam in his bulbs. Strikingly illustrating the extent of the full swipe is the fact that of 400 major-league batters, only 23 hit .300 or better in 100 or more games in '51. Until more batters follow Musial's philosophy, the number of 20-game winners is likely to continue to expand. Coffey wants to know why fans and statisticians use 20 as the number of games a pitcher must win to achieve the heights. "It used to be 30," he points out "Why does the public feel that a pitcher must win 20 before he Is accepted as a star? What difference is there between a 19 and a 20- game winner/ for example? I guess they must have a yardstick to go by/and no doubt the 20-game designation operates as a stimulant to other pitchers, but otherwise there isn't much sense in draxving a curtain between pitchers in or close to the neighborhood. Raschl and Lopat each won 21 for the Yankees, for instance, and Reynolds 17, but you know who Casey Stengel called on in the clutches." Coffey strongly believes there Is a more-exacting method by which to judge a pitcher's merits. "Rate him by the number of singles, doubles, triples, home runs and earned-runs he yields," urges Jack Coffey. "Then you'd have some idea of how good the bloke really is." Clubs keep track of all those things today, but any one of them will gladly settle for a pitcher who can just plain win The front office v/on't ask him how. Week's Games May Name Contestants NEW YORK, Nov. 18 W)--The giant rays o'f the national college football spotlight shift this week to Evanston, 111, and Lexington, Ky., where two of the major bowl assignments may be decided. At Evanston, Illinois' fine team --its 'Pasadena special delayed by yesterday's scoreless tie with Ohio State--shoots for the Western Conference championship and a Rose Bowl bid against Northwestern in the final game for both. The Illinois can quickly squash all sorts of threatening complications by scoring a victory. Should they lose to this tough adversary they.haven't beaten in five years, then Purdue and Wisconsin stand ready to plunge into the act. Lexington, renowned blue grass home of turf and cage champions, plays host to Dixie's annual late- fall hea_dliner. This involves Tennessee's bare-legged bruisers and Kentdcky's rebounding "Wildcats, rated one of the country's great teams despite three early season setbacks. Unbeaten Tennessee already is committed to play Maryland in the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans, so a victory for Kentucky--held not too unlikely--would make the Wildcats probably the No. 1 preference for unfilled spots in the Cotton and Orange Bowls. Ninth-ranked nationally in last week's Associated Press poll, Kentucky boasts one of the outstanding passers of the modern era in Babe Parilli. Tennessee's Gen. Bob Neyland says he expects Kentucky to win. The Sugar Bowl is the only major ' post-season show with a program already lined up for its 'customers, January 1, The others are having their troubles.

Dodger Prexy Answers Celler By DAN DANIEL NEA Special Correspondent NEW - YORK -- (N E A) --Before going into a televised debate with Rep. Emmanuel Celler on issues raised at the Washington hearings, Walter T. O'Malley revealed interesting figures covering the 1950 operation of the Dodgers. "The major leagues have been accused of running a monopoly," President O'Malley said. "They have been charged with keeping worth-while players in the minors in the interest of selfish operation. "They have been pictured as a gigantic octopus, luxuriating in tremendous profits. "Well, * I want to give you some figures wblctt are from a financial statement setting the Brooklyn club's losses at precisely $129,318. "Our deficit in running our farm system alone xvas $365,000. The cost of operating that system was $800,000, but we did get some receipts, and we did sell some players. Chain-Store Losses "Here are chain-store losses: Newport News $80,000; Santa Barbara $70,000; Elmira $60,000; Greenwood, Miss.. $45.000: Three Rivers $34,000; Danville $30.000; Ponca City $25,000: Valdosta $23,000; Cambridge Md., $8.000. "Montreal made $21,000 but Canada taxed us $18.500. St. Paul showed a profit of $28,000 through sale of players, but its operational loss was $78,000. Nashua made $542. "Does all this sum up to monopoly and the grasping octopus? "Fans think a club's Spring exhibition schedule is a Golconda. "The 1950 training season cost the Dodgers $300,000, of which $199,000 went into the operation of the major-minor camp at Vero Beach, Fla. We took in $120,000 at the gate, so our net loss for training was $180,000. "Operating Ebbets Field, Including field forces, repair crews, ticket sellers and takers and ushers' cost '$440.000, All Up But Prices "Expenses are jumping sky high all along the line, and admission prices remain static. "Uncle Sam is our chief partner. He takes a 50 per cent tax on a box seat alone. "Who makes money out of baseball? Not those who stay in it, year in and year out.
