COURIER NEWS I In This Cornei EJMMMMM 1955 NIGH By Krenz Pitt; California Power Attacks Stand Out; Many Fine Backs-Produced BY JEKRY BUONDFIEID NE* Service Sports Writer With caches vnrylni; f Uielr lac- tics according to situations, the season of 1937 mkht be listed as one of .unusual defenses. Because the offense was pretty well throttled thereby, there now is some demand for bringing the ball In 15 yards from the sideline.- Instead, of 10, and putting the goal posts back on the goal line. Clint Prank—Whlzzer White — Marshall Goldberg—the power of Pittsburgh and California-Minnesota's reverses at th« hands of Neb">*ka and Notre Dame—Vander- oilt's trick play—a high school boy by the name of Bill De Correront— And professionally, the brilliant stretch drive of the Washington Redskins—their swamping the New York Giants—Sammy Baugh's phenomenal passing aaalnst the Chicago Bears on a frozen Soldiers' Field— We give you, in retrospect, the 1937 season—a campaign crammed full of thrills and action, but which possibly will be remembered most for the startling number of fine backs who roamed the nation'? gridirons. Multiplicity of Star Backs Attendance Increased over ' 1935 at practically every stadium In the land. Rain, snow, and cold couldn't keep 'em away. , Plfk«rs of all-star teams almost floundered under an avalanche of outstanding backs;' such as Yale'r Frank, awarded th e Helsman trophy as the outstanding player of the year; Colorado's amazing.White, the nation's leading scorer; Goldberg of Pitt, mightiest ball-carrier "( them all: Joe Kllzrow, the Alabama workhorse; Sam Chapman of California; Bid Luckman, Columbia's ace passer; little Davlp O'Brien of Texas Christian, and a good many more. The southwest came up with 210- Pound Ernie Lain, the most-remarkable substitute in'years. Until Lain, previously out with injuries, entered the lineup in the fourth>ame. Rice hadn't scored n point. But paced by this terrific sophomore, who did not start n game, the Owls wound up with the Southwest Conference title. Pitt and Pordham olayed their third consecutive scoreless tie, and made It 180 minutes of the most brulsim? sort of football .without o point beine tallied. 120.0M See Prep Game **perts blinked when.

Not to forget a sensational 66- yard pass completed for a touchdown .against Southern Californit> by Kenny Washington; spectacular U. C. L. A. halfback. Pans were handed another element of surprise when Pitt, because of so much talk of professionalism beat the various bowl committees to the jump, and decided to turn down any post-season Invitations that might be extended to the Panthers. Michigan dismissed Harry Kipke. Harry Mehre and Chick Meehan resigned at Georgia and Manhattan, respectively. Alumni made Mehre's position unbearable.
