PARTI CC By BRAVEN DYER CHICAGO, Aug. 23. When 32 sports writers from all over the country'are thrown together for a solid week they give out with all the latest inside information while shooting the. breeze at informal afternoon teas and evening prayer meetings. Some of those gathered here have known each other for as, much as 25 years. Others got acquainted for the first time. There are the 'usual sectional rivalries, with plenty of ribbing at the right time, but for the most part the boys don't tell many lies when they start swapping dope on their respective sectors. Maybe you'd like to know what some of them had to . say -.' - BUCKEYES FLY HERE a Bob Hooey, Columbus: Ohio State will fly to Los Angeles for the Trojan game in October. It will be the first air trip ever made by a Buckeye grid squad. There are 38 lettermen returning. The best all-around player is Warren Amling, an All-American guard last year and captain of the 1946 squad. Ohio State or Illinois will win the Big Nine grid title. Floyd Olds, Omaha, Neb.: Bernie Masterson has a great gang of players reporting for his first year as head coach at Nebraska. He will have a particularly strong line headed by Eddie Schwartzkopf,. who was guard on the 1940 team which lost to Stanford in the 41 Rose Bowl game. Sam Va-canti, a quarterback who played at Purdue, will be the team's spark plug. We aren't flying to the Coast for the U.C.L.A. game Nov. 30 because we stop at Oklahoma City the Saturday before and thus can go right on through by train and get there in time for several days' practice before meeting the Bruins. ON BERTELLI CASE Ernie Dalton, Boston: The Judge in the Bertelli case is leaning over so far backward that I expect him to decide in favor of the Los Angeles Dons -in which case Bertelli won't play at all this year because he says he's going to stick with 'Tex Collins and the Boston Yanks of the National League. (Dyer's private opinion after buzzing other big brains back here the Dons will lose the case.) Orville Henry, Little Rock: You have one of the greatest ends in football with the Los Angeles Rams. I refer to Jim Benton. When Fred Thomsen ,had him at Arkansas in 1936 : and '37 that team won the Southwest title and Benton was the big reason, He'll catch any pass within yards of him and he can do it in all kinds of weather. Howard Hickey and' Ray Hamilton are Arkansas players, too, and they'll be a big help to the Rams at end. Benton owns a Pine Bluff night club. Zipp Newman, Birmingham: Your 1947 Rose Bowl visitor will be known after Alabama meets Georgia. It'll be the biggest Dixie game in years and they could sell 200,000 tickets for it Harry Gilmer vs. Charley Trippi for the trip to Pasa- i dena. Every youngster in the State of Alabama who can get his hands on a football runs around and jumps up into the air to pass a la Gilmer. Frank Thomas advises 'em all to keep their feet on the ground, but the kids go right on copying Gilmer. Tell all the good South-s ern California folks we expect to see 'em in December. The Rose Bowl is tops with Alabama. (I told Zipp that J. Cra-vath doesn't ever want to see Alabama again.) OREGOXS ABOUT EVEN George Bertz, Portland: Oregon State has the line and Oregon U. has the backs. It's only a guess as to which will be the stronger. , Bill Leiser,, San Francisco: Don't let anybody kid you about St. Mary's being weaker this year. "Sure Cordeiro's gone and so are a few linesmen, but Jim Phelai? is coming up with an even better team this fall. And he's still got Wedemeyer! Royal Brougham, Seattle: I doubt if Washington is good enough to beat the Trojans, but we'll have the roughest-hitting fullback on the Coast in Arnie' Weinmaster, who weighs around 240 but is the t fastest man on the squad. Louis Cox, Dallas: I see Jack Wilson of Baylor is with your Los Angeles Rams. If he doesn't get hurt he'll show you a lot of backfield stuff. When Texas turns out an All-Amer-can you can rest assured he . can go in any company. ALL STARS UPSE T RAMS, 16-0, TO STUN 97, Angels Give Seals 8-1 Shellacking BY AL WOLF Los Angeles not only defeated San Francisco last night at Wrigley Field, but got in a lot of much-needed batting practice in the process. The Angels ran up an 8-1 victory as Cliff Melton, apparently still bothered by the sore arm that's prevented him from notching a single victory this month, was left in from start to finish although yielding 13 hits. Red Adams, meanwhile, uncorked a five-hitter to notch his sixth straight success. The Seals' lone run was unearned. It was a 1-1 ball game until the Seraphs came, to bat in the sixth inning. " ,, ' At this juncture, they caught the tiring Melton with his slants down and proceeded to cudgel him unmercifully the rest of the way for an easy win. The game, which gave the McSweeney's a series edge of 3 to 1, was viewed by 8246 cash customers. . Foiil Tips . It'll be Yank Terry (11-12) for Los Angeles today at 2:30, probably against Jim Tobin (8-10) . . . Last night was Long Beach night . . .

This was the 13th In this spectacular series of games and it proved to be very unlucky for last year's pro champions who were appearing in the clas sic for the first time. Crazy Legs, as Elroy is called, gave the Rams fits. Late in the first quarter the former Wisconsin whiz shot through right tackle on a 68-yard sprint which left our lads strewn all over the turf. Once past thev line of scrim mage, Hirsch was a ball of fire. Swinging his hips like Sally Rand, he eluded two Ram backs and then just ran away from Jim Gillette and Fred Naumetz who were closest of his pursu ers. Hirsch Gets Ball Then in the third quarter Hirsch came through with, his second tally. It was first and 10 on the 'All-Star 38 when Otto Graham fell back to midfield and wafted a floater far down the field to the left. Elroy and Gillette raced for the ball. The fleet Hirsch won, taking the ball in full flight on the Ram 33 and, continuing on into the end zone, was finally felled there by Gillette. Pat Harder kicked both goals and the All-Stars bagged a safety when Kenny Washington was downed in the end zone while back to loss a dying-gasp pass 45 seconds before the game ended. Thus the Rams return to Los Angeles next Tuesday with the prospect of strenuous practice sessions to prepare for their championship replay against the Washington Redskins in the Coliseum Friday night, Sept. 6, for Times' Charities. Opportunities Fail Quite frankly, the champions lost because they couldn't Cash in on numerous scoring opportunities. The All-Stars fumbled seven times and the Rams recovered four, all well into All-Star territory. Every time it happened the crowd expected the Rams to begin booming but frequent penalties and some mighty fine defensive socking by the versatile collegiate linemen stymied, every Los Angeles threat.- - The closest our lads came to scoring was in the second quar ter when Bob Waterfield tossed a long one to Jim Benton on the 9-yard stripe. One of the main reasons why the Rams are coming home with out any points is that Bob Wa terfield did not have one of his good days. It wasn't all Bob's fault, by any means, but he completed only seven of 21 passes far off the high standard he set while skippering the Rams to the title last season. Passes Too Long j Nor could Albie Reisz or Ken- ny Washington, who relieved him briefly, hit their receivers any better than Waterfield. Most of the passes were too far or too swift. Neither team displayed any sustained drive packing the porkhide and the statistics show that the 'Ram backs were tossed for 62 yards while trying to ad vance the ball. Fred Gehrke and Mike Holo- vak turned in some good gains, Dut. tne type of blocking you'a expect from a world's championship team was sadly missing. This is often the case in first games and it's a cinch the Rams will get plenty of work in this department. Tom Harmon came in durinsr the fourth period for one play, was smashed to the tuff for an 8-yard loss by Jack Russell of Baylor, who was the outstanding end on the field, and had to retire. The crash dislocated Tom's left elbow and he was in the hospital tonight for X-rays.. ! :.v Pat West Injured Pat West was hurt in the first quarter and did not play thereafter. This undoubtedly hurt the Rams' running attack because nei-ther Bob Hoffman nor Holovak, who subbed for Pat at fullback, was with the club last season. Bo McMillan, coach of the year last season when has pore litUe boys at Indiana won the Big Nine title, used 42 players. The All-Stars were a much better group of play-ers than Bo had led everybody to believe. He worked the old underdog psychology for all it was worth and thus the Ram defeat will go into the books as an upset. inter missing tnree scoring chances in the first half, the Rams got to the All-Star 26 in the third period, only to have Hirsch nrpak- up Waterfield's end-zone pass to Benton and halt this threat. n-ariy in the fourth stanza Roger Harding scooped up a fumble on the Stars' 32, but the Rams couldn't move and this was their last chance. The Rams trailed bv 7 points at the half, due to Elroy's bril-liant run and their own failure Turn to Page 7, Column S Oliver Masters Nelson in Pro Golf Surprise BY CHARLES CURTIS PORTLAND, Aug, 23. Ed (Porky) Oliver, 30-year-old ex-Army corporal, knocked By'ron Nelson out of the 28th annual Professional Golfers Association championship today at Portland Golf Club as Harold (Jug) Mc Spaden, Jimmy Demaret and Ben Hogan also gained the semifinal round.' Nelson's dethronement a P.G.A. champion saw Mr. Golf experiencing one of his poorest ' rounds of tournament history. The culmination of his recurring attacks of golfing jitters reached a terrible climax at the last hola of the match. There, with the contest all square, Nelson hooked his driv into the rough, hooked again on the next shot and found his ball nestling between two fir trees with the branches hanging closa to the ground. He had an opening for the shot to the green, - but no swinging room. The 9-iron shot failed to get him clear of the rough and . he was lying 3 while Oliver was on the 5-par hole in two shots. Nelson was through then. Cup Missed He carelessly and without a second's deliberation pitched the 75 yards to the green. He was barely on. Certain defeat stared at him then unless he could sink the 30-foot putt, but he did . not even glance up the line of - the shot, slapped at the ball and -missed the cup. Oliver took his par. "If we had gone an extra hole," Nelson said later, "Porky could have won by just walking down the fairway. I couldn't have hit another shot." So the man who was America's 'outstanding athlete in 1944 . and 1945 packed up the clubs and headed for his .Texas home to take a six month's' rest from tournament golf. He had declared before this week that the combination of a sore back and the nervous heebies would force him to lay off until the Masters . of next April. , - Nelson Scrambling Normally the most accurate and consistent fairway hitter in golf, Nelson was scrambling tc- aay. unee ne topped a drive into the 'rough. At the 18th of the morning roynd he hooked to the rough and recovered to the fairway and was again in the rough with his third. Porky, Vho is playing in hia . first P.G.A. championship, spent four years in the Army. His first try at the United States Open produced the great disqualification story of the 1940 Open at Canterbury when he teed off before schedule to avoid a storm, tied for the title with Lawson Little and Gene Sarazen and was disqualified by the great white fathers of the U.S.G.A. Oliver was 4 up at the end of the morning round today, 2 down at the 31st and then won three in a row. Nelson came back to take the 35th to squar it going to the last hole. Congdon Eliminated McSpaden, who will be Oliver's foe today, eliminated Charles Congdon, 5 and 3, after icduing an tne way. Demaret had the best golf of the round, eight uuuer par, to dispose of Jim Tur-nesa, 6 and 5. Demaret started with four straight 3's in the murmng. nogan was five under par as he trimmed Frank Moore, 5 and 4, after the 38-year-old Missouri veteran had been 1 up at the end of 18 holes. Hogan and Demaret clash in the other semifinal match. . Uska's Balk Licks Ducks .A9RA,MENTO, Aug. 23.
