WASHINGTON. Dec. 21. UP)
Fullback Ralph Ruthstrom, who
tried to get the Washington Red
skins to pay him $4,100 for a sea
son In which he didn't play, wound
up by being tackled behind his
own goal line.
Federal District Judge David A.
Pine yesterday ordered him to
pay the Redskins $241.80.
That's what the Redskins had
asked for in a counter suit. They
said they had advanced Ruth
strom some money, and that lie
was $241.80 shy in paying it back.
Ruthstrom's argument was this:
He said he had been suspended
by the Redskins in 1947, and that
he couldn't get another fullback
ing job because of the so-called
This clause it's used in base
ball as well as pro football con
tracts says a player can't sign
with another club until he is given
a written release.
The Redskins, Ruthstrom argu
ed, wouldn't give him this release.
