Indianapolis W/ns 3rd Straight From Brewers Indianapolis, (U.R)—The Indianapolis Indians needed only one game Monday to take the American Association playoff finals. They smothered the Milwaukee Bre%vers Sunday, night 9-3 in a 14-hit barrage. It was the Indians' 3rd straight game in the series to decide who will meet the winner of the International league playoffs in the "Little World Series." Lujack Leads Chicago Past Packers 77-0 By United Press It was a boisterous rendition of "Oh, Johnny" that the Chicago Bears chanted Monday after a perfect start of their 1949 National football league campaign. Perfect not only because the Bears won, but because their 17-0 victory came at the expense of their most bitter rivals, the Green Bay Packers. And how does "Oh, Johnny" figure into it? For one thing, the Bears' score would have been "0" had Johnny Lujack not been in the lineup. He produced all 17 of the , Bear points by passing 2 touchdowns and kicking a field goal and 2 points after touchdown. Both of the touchdowns came in the 4th period—the first on a 28-yard toss to Ken Kavanaugh and the other on a 30-yard throw to J. R. Boone. The field goal came in the 3rd period from the Packer 1C. While Lujack was ruining an otherwise fine afternoon for Green Bay, the Pittsburgh Steel- ers managed with little trouble to sweep to a 28-7 victory over the Giants. Three of the Steeler touchdowns came in the 2nd period, after drives of 76 yards, 80 yards and 31 yards. They scored again the last period on Joe Geri's Riser Captures Trophy Race Saturday at Speed Drome in- plunge. The Giants scored in the last 3 minutes of play on Charley Conerly's 15-yard pass to Ray Poole. PONTIAC Prescribed Service OUR PRESCRIPTION for Fall motoring: "Drive carefully in a car that's safe."

Phone 1144 European Substituted for Bratton in Bout Against Beau Jack Chicago, (U.R) — Livio Minelli, European welterweight champion, Monday prepared for his 10-round bout against Beau Jack here Friday, after a "storm of protests" against Johnny Bratton caused his substitution for the match. Boxing Director Joe Lewis of the International Boxing Club announced the switch. He said it was made because of the "confusion surrounding the appearance of Bratton." The original Bratton-Beau bout was approved last week by the Illinois State Boxing Commission, but the commission balked at approving a contract submitted by Bratton's co-managers, Howard Frazier and Danny Spunt. Roy Riser of Cherokee, who has found the Mohawk Speed Drome in Mason City to his liking in midget racing competition this summer, captured the trophy race Saturday night from a good field of 14 drivers. Riser was 2nd to Jerry Shirley of Waterloo in the time trials but the hard driving speedster from the west proved his supremacy in competition by copping 3 events on the 6 race program. Riser copped the 2nd race, came back to capture event No. 4 and then won the feature race with Dutch Sexton of Thornton finishing 2nd.
