Baiigh Proves Potency of the Forward Pass in Pitching Redskins to the Title Sweetwater Sam's Arm So Unerring That It Carries Washington Through Even When Running Attack Is Stopped By HARRY GRAYSON Spurts EdffofrNEA Service CHICAQQ-Stn College football, the general belief outside of the southwest is that they pass to exce.-s in the cow country. ' But Sammy Bough, product of Texas Christian's, Serial school, was brought into .the National League for that very purpose, and paid rich dividends in pitching the"Washington Redskins to the championship. Rarely has-.an individual meant so much to a club as did Baugh to the Braves from the banks of the Potomac, who were just about the hottest team in the history of professional football as they-, roared down' the stretch. Sweet Sammy of Sweetwater clearly demonstrated the potency of the pass, when there are receivers like Wayne Millner and Eddie Justice, and when the? air Janes are thrown open by a running attack that has Clifford Franklyn Battles as a spearhead behind blockers like Eroie Pinckert and Riley Smith. Baugh's final stand in his maiden year as a money player probably was the finest exhibition in the annals of the game. As Coach Ray Flaherty explains, the Redskins were flat against the powerful Chicago Bears at Wrig- !ey Field, after annihilating the New York Giants, 49-14. Just As Well for Bears That Baugh Wasn't Well Flaherty realized that under the conditions there was little hope in a rushing game against the strongest line on the gridiron. If Ihe Redskins were to prevail, it had to be on Baugh's accurate and speedy arm. Everything was against Baugh. The battle was waged on a frozen field that necessitated the wearing of basketball shoes. The six-foot, three-inch. 185-pound Texan appeared to be frozen, PURE CANE SUGAR 10 M Lb.

CALL NUMBER 8 Representative JACK WITT Sammy Baugh refuses to be stampeded by rushing linemen. Here (he tall Texan nonchalantly passes 20 yards to Eddie Justice, 'who ran 15 yartls for the touchdown that gave the Washington'. Redskins a 28-21 victory over the Chicago Bears, ant! the professional championship. too, in weather to which he was totally unaccustomed. On top of that, he on one good leg and his pitching hand was raw across the palm. , Yet all Baugh did was complete 17 of the 34 forwards for 352 of the 41)4, yards amassed by WashingtoTl.' He tosses three touchdown passes in the third period and set up the Redskins' other touchdown with them in the first five minutes, Battles going over from the seven-yard line on his favorite reverse to the weak side. Washington copped by the margin of a single touchdown, 28-21, but it might not have been so close had not Baugh been'injured in the second period. The Redskins trailed, 14-7, when Baugh returned to the lineup at the start of the half. Sweetwater Sammy promptly tied Ihe score with a bullet- like, 20-yard shot to Millner, who raced the remaining 35 yards. Then, after the Bears again took the lead, Baugh again found Millner with a 27- yard shot, and the former Notre Dame luminary went 50 yards more for the third Redskin touchdown. The payoff punch was a 20-yard pass to Justice, who saw that the Bears got none by sprinting 15 yards to pay dirt. Swcctwatcr Sam Runs, Blocks am) Kicks, Too Baugh's passing and Battles' running won by Washington. Wild Blockers Smith and Pinckert, they formed one of the greatest backficld offensive combinations that the oldest critic ever saw. Baugh improved tremendously as the season progressed. Sweetwater Sammy neither blocked nor carried nt Texas Christian. He was a new man when ha learned to <lu this with the Redskins, for whom he did all tliu kicking. George Preston Marshall, owner of the Washington club, paid handsomely for Baugh, but he turned out to be a splendid investment. Marshall hud a net profit of $90,000 for the season just closed, which wiped out the deficit of six .straight losing campaigns in Boston, and then some. Such a keen judge as Earl 'Dutch) Clark of Detroit calls Baugh Ihe most accomplished passer that he has even seen, Wilh hi.s running, blocking, and kicking, Sujimiy Baugh <>! Sweetwaler in another .season may take his place with the all-time greats as un all-round performer. Imltc.d, the Bears, Giants, Green Bay Fuckers, and the rest aren't at all certain that he does not merit such ranking right now.
