59 TWO TOUCHDOWNS FOR RED GRANGE SUNDAY NEWS, DECEMBER fi, 1325 CHICAGO BEARS BEATFRANKFORD AT SHIBE PARK By MARSHALL HUNT. Philadelphia, Pa., Dec. 5. Playing on a field that was almost ankle deep in mud, Master Red Grange led the Chicago Bears to a 14 to 7 victory over the Frank-ford Yellow Jackets this afternoon. The Wheaton wonder scored two touchdowns, one in the second period and another in the final quarter after a brilliant forward passing attack had enabled the Yellow Jackets to tie the score in the third. More than thirty thousand wit1-nessed the game. A Slow Start. It was not until the very close of the first period that the famous phantom displayed any of his adeptness at wriggling, writhing and squirming through the lines bf the enemy. After an exchange of punts, the celebrated sorrel top lost a yard attempting to circle his own right end. Later, he caught a punt in midfield and was submerged in the goo before he had gained three yards. On the next play Chani-berlin threw him in his tracks. It was then that a few of the wolves began shouting: "Where Red Grange Earl Britten Still doing their stuff together. did you learn to play football, Grange?" But wait! A few seconds later and the red head had broken throne-h the Yellow Jackets' fron tal- jVTn hi) nlucked a 20 vard pass from the spray in the air. Umph! that was Red knocking the wind from a Yellow Jacket lineman as he ploughed through the mire for 5 yards. Another crash and Red had gained two more and the bail was n the Frankfords' 2 yard line as the first period ended. Looks Easy. Frightfully easy it looked, the way the Wheaton wonder slipped through the Jackets' line for a touchdown on the first play in the second period. J. Sternanian dropped back, after changing his right shoe for a dry one, and kicked for the Bears' seventh point-Master Grange having done his stuff was relieved a few plays later. An elapse of a few minutes and J. Sternaman missed an attempted field goal. Just before the end of the second period Britton attempted a field goal from the 40 yard Kne, but the kick was wide. The 77 of the former Illini was not in the Chicago eleven's lineup when the third period started, nor did he play any of that quarter. But the absence of Grange was hardly noticed, because only a few minutes after play was resumed a beautifully executed pass was thrown by- Stockton, Yellow Jackets' fullback, from the middle of the field. It was received by Jones, end, on the 30 yard line, and Jones, who learned his football at Nebraska, Facts on Red Grange Game At Polo Grounds. OPPOSING TEAMS New York Grid Giants vs. Chicago Bears.

Immediately the Bears sprang into action. A pass, orange to iUo&ardt, netted ten yards, and Red got five on an end run. Mohardt plunged through all obstacles for eighteen yards and tne ball was a yard from the Jackets line. One plunge; another. The mass untangled itself and the peddler of water in the solid was discovered two feet over the line, his second touchdown of the game. E. Ster naman kicked and the score was Bears 14, Frankford 7.

Time of periods 15 nun- Just a Feller, Says Hunt; Heavy Coin Fog Around Him By MARSHALL HUNT. Philadelphia, Pa., Deb. 5. The galloping ghost of Illinois cantered into this city, the first stop on his tour of the east, on a highway smoothly paved with a design strongly resembling the dollar mark. Before today's contest between his Chicago Bears and the local Yellow Jackets, Master Grange ap-praised the seating capacity of Shi be park, a p p r a i sed. it with a professional air. Master Grange, h e 1 1-bent on the road to his first million, was delighted, for he could see plenty of room to care for the 40,000 people eager to separate themselves from a robust chunk of lucre to see Red and his Bears play a very professional football game. A very professional business manager of Master Grange and his very professional assistant took an accurate check of the stiles. Later, perhaps before, that very professional business manager and his very professional assistant came in for their cut. What Kind of a Gay? What manner of man is this Red Grange, a 22-year-old youth who expects to tock atcay more earnings in the next six weeks than most heavyweights make in championship fights, or Babe Ruth earns by toiling more or less arduously for six full months? What of his personality? What is in him t odraw thousands through the gates at so much per draw? Your correspondent, overanxious to keep faith with his tolerant constituents, waddled across the consomme gridiron at Shibe park while Grange and his Bears were practicing; kicking in a depressing mist.

When engaged in conversation, he does not appear to possess any pronounced sense of humor and one judges that no few of the wise cracks ignited by his companions glance off "his sorrel skull without leaving any noticeable dent. He was a disappointment socially, a conversational flop. Was he happy to be playing professional football? Did he leave Already C C. Pyle, known as "Cash and Carry Pyle," refers to Harold as "my Doy," and he will tell you that on Dec. 15 he'll "drop my boy in at Galiopolis for a real good cut." Strangely reminiscent of the ol' fight lingo, eh? Just Watching. The Grange introduction to professional football has resulted in a somewhat complicated situ- Mr. Pyyle has an assist ant, a reccoon hide enveloped as sistant. The assistant watches Mr. Pyle. Mr. Pyle watches his assistant and Red watches both. It's a matter of watchful waiting, apparently. Money? Grange receives more than 50 per cent, of the Bears' share for each game. Mr. Pyle will tell you in convincing tones that Grange will receive a fabulous amount of dough before his seson is over, but Cash and Carry refuses to mention money except in generalities. Tough on Him, Eh? Is Grange earning this fabulous 70,000 TO PACK POLO GROUNDS FOR RED TODAY By JACK FARKLLL. It took the combined efforts t two of our best known and most firmly established national institute tions, the Army and Nav y, to draw the largest crowd of the f o otball season to the Polo grounds two weeks ago. Today, one i n -dividual. an ice man, from W heaton. 111., named Harold Red Grange, will essay to go the Army and Navy one better by packing the home of the Giants to the last inch of stand ing room. From all indications his will be a successful achievement. With any kind of break from thJ weather man and that isn't n tirely necessary some 70,000 fanj will be on hand to see this Grange person lead his j'ack of Chicago Bears against Bub Folwell's Giant in their much advertwed batti royal. Just a Good Crowd. The Army-Navy classic, with all its pomp and ceremony, was played before over 65.000 people, a record breaking crowd. Tomorrow, in all probability, that crowd will be merely a noteworthy performance. Every ticket printed for this epochal battle has found its way out of the Giants' offices and into the hands of some football fan, ; except 3.000 bleacher seat whicl I will be dished out on the first come-first-served order when th( gates ojen at 11:30 o'clock today. The visitors will take the field fof practice at 1:15 p. m., and tha game will st.-irt at 2 o'clock, not at 2:,"0. as the tickets say. Grange's cut of the gate receipts will be about IS-VOCO. Record Guarantee, Too. , This is the largest guarantee ever paid a football player for singl game.

Yes, Master Grange said in a lackadaisical way, he is happy to be playing for money and although he was hurt by Zuppke's remarks, he is friendly toward him. Too, there is a future in professional football. The fireworks, the personality, the grand glad-hand artist of the Grange entourage is C. C. Pyle, his manager, a western theatrical impressario who knows all the tricks of trumpeting and all the intricacies of the ballyhoo. Pyle, suave, talkative and interesting, is the Jack Kearns of the football racket. Already he is adopting some of the phraseology of the squared circle. Sounds Familiar. Just as the managers of Irzy Whistleberry, the pugilistic sensation of Canarsie, or Wildcat Glutton of Passaic, will tell you those exponents of the science of sock-ology are extremely good to their mg way to make a fabulous for- j tune. Some day Red will return to Illinois, he says, and will try to find enough time off from clipping coupons to deve sufficiently deep into the textbooks to receive his diploma.
