Football Forum THI CHASE Parker Says 49ers Will Be Powerhouse In Pro Grid Chase Last of a series By BUDDY PARKER Head Coach, Detroit Lions DETROIT — (NBA) — There used to be some talk of the Western Division of the National Football League lording it over the Eastern, except maybe in the championship play-off (Cleveland beat Detroit last year, remember?) It just isn't so any more, and that's not taking anything away from my Western neighbors, whom I consider tough indeed. In our neck of the woods, how're you going to pick among the Lions, 49ers, Bears and Rams? The way Green Bay and Baltimore played the latter part of '54, you can't overlook them either. The 49ers, already loaded with the likes of Joe Perry, Y. A. Tittle, John Henry Johnson and Hugh McElhenny, had sauce heaped on the dessert in rookies Carroll Hardy and Dickie Moegle. * * * The Bears, with George Halas nearing the end of his career, will be primed for an all-out effort. Losing Zeke Bratkowski to the service hurt, but I've seen nothing weak Boxing Briefs Top AAiddleweights FeaturedThisWeek By MURRAY ROSE The Associated Press Neal Rivers, an ambitious, 21-year-old middleweight who is willing to take on anyone in his division, faces Bobby Dawson, a skillful veteran, who had to go to Europe to keep busy, in an interesting 10-rounder at New York's St. Nicholas Arena | tonight. This is the second such assignment for the hard-hitting, aggressive youngster from Niagara Falls. N. Y., and Las Vegas.

The American Legion card will feature two American Indians opposing a black-beardfd Russian and a Canadian. Chief Lone Eagle, the jitter-bugging Cherokee brings along one of his Cherokee brothers. Chief Little Eagle, to team with him in Ihe tag bout. Opposing them will be big Boris Kalmikotf, the Russian, and John Silvers, who hails from Canada. This booking has a bit of a grudge air. too. It is a requested return shot for Lone Eagle and Silvers who last Monday night sliced the Indian's eye in a bout. Although neither have appeared here before, neither Kalmikoff or Little Eagle are strangers to Blytheville turn. Both have appeared in nationally-televised bouts that were viewed here.

Lofi Angeles, under new coach Sid Gillman, was helped by the addition of several rookie linemen to go with the backfield nucleus of Norm Van Brocklin, Dan Towler and Tank Younger. Baltimore got much needed offensive help from fullback Alan Amechft and quarterback George Shaw. Green Bay gave the Lions two of their toughest games last year, and retains such top players as end Bill Howerton and quarterback Tobin Rote, the battery from Rice, while adding an outstanding newcomer in guard-linebacker Tom Bet- tls. The Lions have problems—Bobby Layne's shoulder, the retirement of middle guard Les Bingaman and tackle Thurman McGraw. Leon Hart has looked fine since being shifted to defensive end. Also on the credit side is Doak Walker's inspirational* play. The year of .experience should! li(ce Bednarik, Kllioy, Bur! make a fine fullback of Lew Carpenier. In the Eastern Division you have to figure Paul Brown's team as the OTTO GRAHAM %&?-'**»*-'*&- one to beat, despite their slow exhibition season start. Cleveland has a way of coming on. The Browns have to hustle to keep ahead o! the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles, Otto Graham, of course, is back, and so are most of the others. The Eaffle*, llkewife, are a veteran culb, sprinkled with names _ It, Pihos, and nothing to indicate they've slipped. Joe Trimble's men may have picked up the running game they've lacked by shifting Jerry Norton to offensive halfback and inserting rookies Ted Wegert and Dick Bielski into the backfield. Rookies figure to help the Giants, particularly Mel Triplet* at fullback and tackles Roosevelt Grier and Rex Boggan. Charley Conerly figures to lead the attack again, but Don Hein- rlch has been forcing his way in. Washington, the Chicago Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers are on the upgrade. The Hedskini bring: back Eddie LeBaron from Canada to play quarterback and supplement him with Ralph ouglielmi. Watch out for the Card running backfield of OUie Matson, Dave Mann and Johnny Olszewski. The Steelers, who started so strongly last year, may have picked up the stamina to sustain them in rookies Prank Varrichone of Notre Dame and Ed Bernet of Southern Methodist. Pre-season calculations can't take into account the injury factor, not Haney Not Bitter At Firing; Hopes To Stay in Game PITTSBURGH UK—TrtA Haney, fired as manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates, says he hopes to continue in baseball, isn't angry at Pirate General Manager Branch Rickey and has done the best he could to make a winning team out of tb* hapless Pirates. Haney was in t. genial mood today as he prepared to leave [or the World Series in New York — and perhaps learn if he can hook on with another major league club. Philosophically accepting his dismissal by Rickey yesterday r- he found out about it in a letter from the Mahatma — Haney declared: "I'm leaving Pittsburgh with * clear conscience. I tried to giv» 100 per cent to the club and if my best wasn't good enough, that's it, I guess. But I have no hard, feelings against anyone ... If I was running the club and wanted to make a change, that's what I'd do. Mr. Rickey apparently wanted to make a change and that's it. I want to emphasize I have no hard feelings against him or anyone else." As for his future, Haney said he will be on the lookout for a bate* ball job, take in the World Series, return to Pittsburgh to wind up his affairs "and then go home to ~<os Angeles to rest awhile." * Shortly before his team took the field to lose a 4-0 decision to the Dodgers yesterday, and wind up the year with a 60-94 record, Haney told reporters he had received * letter from Rickey notifying him his contract was being terminated. The two-year agreement carried a provision on automatic renewal next season unless terminated by either party by the end of thie season. Washington State and Kaneu will play football for the first time this season. They meet on Sept 24. in Kansas. to mention the bounce of the ball. We hope it bounces our way enough to reclaim the world championship we loaned the Browns last December.
