One reason, according to the Rosenberg book, is that Szell wanted to get more income for his players. Salaries and season length for the CO, at that time, were not on a par with the other big orchestras, and to keep players from seeking higher wages elsewhere he took the contracts offered from BOM. 

BTW, MAR = Music Appreciation Records. S=stereo.
