Baugh Called All-Time Great By HARRY GRAYSON NEA Sports Editor NEW YORK -- (NEA1 Ancient Rivals To Meet Again Meyer only makes it unanimous when he calls Samuel Adrian Baugh the igreatest passer in history. And Texas Christian's coach doesn't have to add "from the standpoint of pure technique." Sammy Baugh is the daddy ot 'em all any way you look"at it. Think of a football player accounting for the professional upset of the year at 37. That is precisely what Slingm Sams Dead-Eye Dicking did when the Redskins spilled the Los Angeles Rams, 31-21, at Washington s Griffith Stadium the other Sunday afternoon. - . , " While Baugh has been a specialist in more recent campaigns, his big day after 23 consecutive years in the roughest of all games is highly oxtraordinary. ; Equally remarlcable perhaps is that he has never talked of're- NEW YORK. Nov. 29. (/P)--Army meets Navy at Philadelphia and Dutch I Notre Dame tangles with Southern California at Los Angeles Saturday tiring. Meanwhile remarkable, in his 15th season in the National League, a record falls every time he pitches, completes a pass, gams a yard or scores a touchdown. Baugh has played longer than many National League players have lived Only one other performer, the legendary Johnny Blood, who wound up in 1939, survived as many pro seasons. ' Flip Of The Wrist As Meyer stresses, Baugh doesn't wind up and throw. Most of his passing Action comes from the wrist. Just a flip and the ball takes off. Meyer, who tutored Baugh and Davey O'Brien, believes Southern. Methodist's Fred Benners is the closest approach to the former as a collegian. While on the subject of passing, Johnny Lujack says the reason so many youngsters pick up bad habits along 'this line is that the ball is much too large for a boy's hand. "He throws sideways to make the ball spiral," points out the former Notre Dame star quarterbacking the Chicago Bears. "Rather than break the habit later on. most fellows keep on doing it the same old way. "The ball should be held in a comfortable position. A _ passer shouldn't try to wrap his hand around the middle. That's the biggest part. You'd have to have the hand of a giant to grip it there. "The correct method is to throw the ball past your ear, with no sidearm motion "Get set, then throw in the direction in which you step. You can't step in one direction and throw in another." Nn Better Than Receivers Baugh, Lujack and the other stickouts are first to tell you that a passer is no better than his receivers. ' When Frank Thomas had the incomparable college battery, Dixie Howell to Don Hutspn. at Alabama, he spoke of the latter's acting. With 'Bama and so many years for Green Bay, Hutson would jog toward a defender as though he were going nowhere in particular, then suddenly cut, pick up astonishing speed in 'a jiffy, and catch a pass at his shoetops. There is a defense for everything, , however, and sometimes the slickest passing won't go even when it is supplemented by the stoutest kind of a running game. In 33 college games. Vito Panlli of Kentucky completed 331 passes in 592 attempts, had only 35 intercepted. Parilli completed 15 of 25 for 137 yards, had only one intercepted by Tennessee the other afternoon. Yet Babe Parilli in three starts never once tossed a touchdown pass against Tennessee. Brig.-Gen. Bob Neyland, you see, long ago learned that all games are won on the defense. in two of college football's most ancient rivalries. But the big money games of the day come in the Lone Star country, where they still have to settle the Southwest Conference championship and the league's Cotton Bowl representative. Texas Christian, leading in the Southwest, meets Southern Methodist, while second-place Baylor takes on Rice in the key games down Texas way. A victory for T. C. U. would clinch the title and give the Horned Frogs a crack at Kentucky in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas on New Year's Day. The largest crowd of the day, which ends the hectic 1951 college season except for a game here and there and the .various bowl tilts, will be at Philadelpha. In spite of their 'poor records, some 100,000 will watch the 52nd Army-Navy service spectacle. President Truman, who usually attends, will remain at his Key West vacation spot. Army Holds Edge Army, crippled by the cribbing scandal has lost six of eight games, beating only Columbia and the Citadel. The best Navy can show is one victory over Columbia,,and a tie with Yale. In the series starting in 1890, Army has - won 27, Navy 20, with four ties. However, since they toss away the season's records in this one, the usual big crowd plus the West Point Cadet corps and the Annapolis Midshipmen will be on hand for the colorful game which never seems to run true to form. Navy wasn't supposed to win last year over Army's powerhouse, but did, 14-2. This time Navy rates an eight-point choice. This game, plus the USC-Notre Dame clash, will be televised on a coast-to-coast hookup. Army-Navy starts at 1:30 p. m., while the Los Angeles kickoff is 5 p. m., both Eastern Standard Time. Southern Cal is rated seven points over Notre Dame, which has won 13 games in the series starting in 1926. U. S. C. has won seven, with two ties. Notre Dame has a 6-2-] record this year, U. S. C. has lost three of 10 games. Texas Christian Favored Texas Christian, winner of four games and loser only to Texas ir the conference race, is a six anc one-half point favorite over Southern Methodist in their game before 33,000 at Fort Worth. At Houston, some 50.000 will see Baylor, the nation's No. 9 team against Bice. Baylor has won three conference games, lost to Texas Christian, and was tied by Texas A. M. Tennessee and Georgia Tech the two leaders in the Southeastern Conference, appear likely to wind up as co-champions. Tennessee, the No. 1 team in the country goes after its 20th straight victory in a game with Vanderbilt before 35,000 at Knoxville. A crowd of 41,000 is expected to see Georgia Tech, No. 6 in the land play Georgia in Atlanta. Tennessee, which meets Marylanc in the Sugar Bowl Jan. 1. is a 26 point choice over Vanderbilt, while Georgia Tech is seven and a hal over Georgia. Tech has accepted a Orange Bow] bid, and the opposing team in Miami's bowl probabl; will be known after Saturday's games are finished. It could be Baylor, Holy Cross, or another from the Southwest. Detrick Team To Meet 'ort Belvoir Tonight Camp Detrick's basketball t««m will tackle mighly Fort Belvoir. a., tonight in an attempt to reap heir first win of the regular sea- on. A comparison of teams looks ike the local Comets will have o wait for feheir initial harvest. The game, scheduled to get underway at 8 p m., will be play d on the Engineers' court. Belvoir's quint comes into the game with a 1-1 record. It lost o powerful Fort George G- Meade i6-54, and turned back a somewhat weaker crew from" Fort Leslie McNair 64-56. The score in the Engineers' tilt ith Fort Meade gives an indication of the calibre team they lave built this year. They lost ay only two points to a team which boasts All-America college and professional stars. Fort Belvoir's starters will be 2nd Lt. George Kopchik, Sgt. -loyd Ness, Pfc. Jack Riehl. former Carnegie Tech great and present coach of the Belvoir Engineers, and Pvts. Pat Bonavemuro and Robert Hoffman. Initial line-up for the Comets will have Sgt.

Lowly Browns Get M. Marion ST. LOUIS. Nov. 29, uFI--Marty Marion was back in St. Louis major league baseball today. The smiling thin man. fired only recently as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, signed not one contract but two with the St. Louis Browns for a three-year hitch. One contract was as a coach and the other as a player. That's because Marty feels sure that he is about to overcome a bad knee and back which last seasor kept him from his 11-year stand in the Cardinal infield where he became known as Mr. Shortstop. Owner Bill Veeck, himself full of smiles at the signing today, explained that while Marion was nailed down by two contracts he could leave the Browns anytime he gets a chance »LT manage a major league club. To get Marlon. Veeck reportedly had to put $15.000 a year on the line as a coach and another $10,000 or so if he make? his comeback as a shortstop. Marty reportedly go around $35.000 for his one year as manager of the Cardinals. Hired As Coach Veeck hired him primarily as a coach but he left no doubt Marty would be a happy addition afielc for the Browns who are undergoing a winter overhauling. Marty says his knee is well. He was out last season following ai operation on it. His bad back? Well he says, his physician thinks if he keeps on taking prescribed streng thening exercises it should be in shape by spring. The 33-year-old Marion turned down an attractive offer with the Boston Braves because "I wantec to stay in St. Louis." Marty steered the Cardinals into third place in the National League race last season. When Marion was dropped as Cardinal manager it generally was understood that owner Fred Saigh felt he lacked aggressiveness. Saigh still is on a hunt for a manager. The word is that he has his eye on fiery Eddie Stanky. New York Giant second baseman. CHICAGO. Nov. 30 ifl')--The Chicago White Sox and lowly St. jouis Browns negotiated a three- 'or-flve player swap today to the ippparent satisfaction of both, From the Browns to the White Sox went Catcher Sherman Lollar, 'itcher Al Widmar and Shortstop Tom Upton. The Browns, rebuilding under new Manager Rogers Hornsby. in exchange obtained First Sacker lordon Goldsbcrry. Outfielder Jim Rivera. Pitcher Dick Littlefleld, Catcher Gus Niarhos and Infielder Joe De Maestri. General Manager Frank Lane broadly intimated that robust-hitting Lollar would help the White Sox improve their surprising 1951 fourth-spot finish. Hornsby, ou the other hand, is happy to get two of his former Seattle proteges. slick-fielding Goldsberry and fleet, hard-hitting Rivera. In Niarhos, the Browns are getting a catcher whose injury last season threw Sox receiving out of tiller after a sensational start in the American League race by the Pale Hose. Anticipating the loss of Lollar. who batted .280 last season, the Browns also acquired Catcher Clint Courtney from the New York Yankees for Pitcher Jim McDonald last Saturday. Niarhos batted .256 in 66 games and drove in 10 runs. Righthander Widmar, 26, had a 4-9 Brownie record last season, while Upton, who bats lefthanded, was a .198 hitter in 52 games. Lefty Littlefield spent most of last season with Memphis of the Southern Association and fashioned a 13-11 record. De Maestri, while batting .203. looked good afield the times star Sox shortstop Chico Carrasquel took a rest. Lane, who said no cash was involved in the deal, made it plain Lollar was the man the Sox were after. "Injuries to our catching staff at critical times last season forced us to overwork Phil Masi and to use rookie catchers. Our combined catching staff drove in just 45 runs in 155 games while Lollar drove in one less, 44. in just 97 games. "A few additional RBI's on the credit side of the ledger would have made an indentation in the 26 games we lost by one run and could have been instrumental in the White Sox finishing higher than fourth.' 1 Charter Flight From ( Here To Sugar Bowl Charles Grimes, manager of ttic municipal airport, announced Tuesday that arrangements have been made with AH American Airways for a charter flight from Frederick to New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl game on New Year's )ay. Grimes is now accepting eservations for the flight, which icludes round trip transportation, or a price of approximately $87.

(fl)--Sales at the Wicomico County Farmers Cooperative auction market were off about $150,000 last summer, but the market made a profit nevertheless. Block manager W. E. Twilley reported to stockholders that the total volume last summer amounted to $510.101. compared with $662,124 in 1950. He told the 417 stockholders, however, that the block showed a profit of $10,702.23 for the year. Texas A. And M. Beats Ancient Rival, 22 To 21 COLLEGE STATION, Tex., Nov 29, (/P)--Texas A. M. bound up its football season into one frenzied afternoon and beat its greatest rival, Texas, 22-21, today in a wild rib-racking game that saw members of the two teams coming to blows in the finish.

Its first win ove: Texas in 12 vic-tory-starved years A crowd of 40.500 went wild as A. M. staved off two mighty Texas drives in the last minutes and June Davis missed a field goa from the Aggie 30-yard line with 10 seconds to go.

The Council vetoed suggestions for expanding the National and American Leagues to 10 or 12 club leagues. Bars Big Cities This definitely bars individual cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco. Houston, Dallas, Baltimore. Montreal, Toronto, Milwaukee and other cities which have been mentioned as possible sites for big league franchises. These cities, however, s t i l l could become big league towns by franchise shifts--such as from St. Louis to Los Angeles--but there are many stumbling blocks here. too. tor ambitious cities. First the other cities in the minor league must give unanimous consent, to the transfer and heavy cash payment must be made to the minor league for the loss of territory. Among other requirements, a new league must show an aggregate of 15.000,000 population in the eight cities; must have an average paid attendance of 3,500.000 over n three-year period preceding the applicntion: must havp a potential minimum of 25,000 capacity in any single park: and must be responsible for all territory provisions and for all financial obliRatlons. It also must put up about $2,000,000 rash to start a pension fund similar to that now in use in the majors. Thus the chances for a third ma Jor league in our time narrow down to one possibility--that the PCL would drop some weak sisters, take in such cities as Dallas and Houston and rebuild their park?. A deer's antlers grow so fast that the process is almost without parallel in the animal kingdom. Davis Underrated, Grid Addicts Say tj ALEXANDRIA. Vf. . Nov. 29--W) --Many football folks around here t h i n k Andy Davis of George Wash ington University is the nation's most underrated player. They also think he will prove their point mmon'ow night as George Washington plays Rich mond. For if Davis Rains 100 yards with hk r u n n i n g and passing he will break the all-time Southern conference mark of 4.871 yards set. by Charley Justice of North Carolina. It would be n fitting end to four fine years put in by the 24-year-old senior. Davis has been a standout from the first game he played as a freshman. But he's alwnys played on n team that was mediocre, or pos- slbly, not even that. The headlines naturally have gone to others. Davis hasn't even been named on an all-Southern conference team. The 175-pound Davis has another handicap, too. He was born January. Club President C. William Hot- zer said the dat« would be *et later. * Former Governor William Preston Lane, Jr., was elected to the executive committee of the club at a meeting last night.
