Ifi.—The Cleveland Rams, combining pluck and luck to become the surprise team oC the National League football season, still were unbeaten today, but they needed a full measure of both to preserve their record with a hair- erecting 20-17 victory over the Detroit Lions. The luck was all good for them and all bad for Detroit yesterday after they trailed 17 to 0 in the second period and Franklc Sinkwich, the Lions" one-man offense came up with an ailing appendix. He had made or accounted for all of Detroit's points on a touchdown, a touchdown pass, two conversions and a field goal, when he suffered the attack. After that he became ineffective and the Rams came up with the pluck necessary to overcome the fat lead. A 48-yard pass from Albie to Steve Pritko In the final seven minutes produced the clinching touchdown. The New York Giants remained undefeated in the Eastern division, clowning the Brooklyn Tigers 14 to 7 on two long touchdown passes by Hank Soar. Tho Chicago Bears, who normally would bo sewing up the Western division title about this time of the year, won their first game by running up five touchdowns to beat the defensively weak Pittsburgh-Chicago Cardinal amalgamation, 34 to 7.
