49ers Snap Chicago Jinx On Record Scoring Pass i j f M < I-.« Vo4 irvnal Forvlhflll IjAfl'fllH SAN FRANCISCO TPD— “This time,” 49er Coach Red Hickey had predicted, “were going to do something about the Bears at Wrigley Field." And the San Francisco 49ers did do something at Chicago, although fans were never sure until the end of yesterday’s game whether that something meant victory' or loss. The key’ blow that gave the 49ers a 34-27 victory over the Bears turned out to be an 30- yard pass play from John Brodie to Jimmy Johnson. The win was the first time the 49ers achieved at Wrigley Field since 1957 and the Brodie-Johnson play was the longest scoring pass in 49ers league history-. V. A Tittle and Carroll Hardy pulled off a 78-yard pass play for San Francisco SIDELINES against Detroit in 1955. Passing alone was only a small part of the story yester- 1 day because losing Chicago passed for 381 yards while vic- i torious San Francisco made ' only 105 yards in the air. But the 49ers pilled up a total of 194 yards in rushing I against 88 for the Bears to help i avenge Chicago’s 30-14 smash over San Francisco in the open* I sspi ing game this Stadium. The ball three limes yesterday on fumbles and once on a pass interception. The 49ers made points on all but one of these mistakes.

The Packers now lead the Western Division with five wins and no losses. By ED RANDOL Bears Show Once Again That It Is Better To Give Than Receive When the San Francisco 49ers outscored the Chicago Bears 34 to 27 yesterday in an old-fashioned thriller, I suppose 1 should have been elated. Instead. all that came to mind was a series of adages and quotations. “Never look a gift horse in the mouth.” And “Small favors gratefully accepted.” And “God helps those who help themselves.” Well, the Niners helped themselves to their third straight win after two opening losse> j In losing, the Bears showed once again that “it is better to give than to receive." But one other quotation keeps popping into my mind, straight from that great football observer. Bill Shakespeare: “Something is rotten in the State of Denmark.” Consider the facts. Just a few weeks ago a “crippled” Rear team trounced the 49ers 30 to 14 in a game that could just as well have been 60 to 14. Sunday’s game was played in Chicago. where the 49ers have lost for four straight years. And whether you like it or not. Papa Bear Halas, the Chi-coaehc, has great influence in his own back yard. IN LAST Friday's column 1 the 49ers had won the game i When Jack and Coach Rod I Hickey get through looking at the films of the game you can bet some ears "ill burn, and I you may find some lineup shuf- j fling for next week. ON THE fun side, it was good to see quarterback John Brodie going for the home run again! after forgetting the long shots' for weeks. Credit the improved play of J. 1). Smith for keep, ing the defense honest and giving Brodie time to exploit the great speed of his ends and i flankers backs. And credit the offensive line for some sharp blocking. It helps. The Bears almost pulled the game out of the fire with some __ beautifully-executed screen reported that an ex-49er who passes.

The game itself was a dandy from a spectator’s standpoint. San Francisco spectator, that is. I highly recommend a re- vitw of the contest on Wednesday night on TV, with an eye to the great pass reception, runs, and fumble plays. The ball really moved prise to pull the 49ers through next Sunday when they travel to Milwaukee to take on the undefeated champions, t h e Green Bay Packers. But it’s worth a try. Each week the 49ers have looked like a different team, so Packer Coach Vic Lombardi can not set a defensive pattern. Maybe it is Hickey’s turn to write the MARIN GAMES WASHED OUT BUT FROM a technical standpoint, the Bear fumbles and the st nI)l- 49er defense really stank up ———the joint, as the saying goes. During the game, Jack Christiansen, defensive backfield coach of the Prospectors, must have died a million deaths as | his backs were suekered out of j OVER WEEKEND position, failed to knock down or intercept passes, and on occasion tried to tackle by pushing the ball carrier. After the game, Christiansen found it hard to believe that Five Cities In Bid For '68 Olympics CHICAGO — Dejegates from five cities will present cases today before the l!. S. Olympic Committee’s board of directors in a bid for the 1968 Olympic summer games. Representatives from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit. Philadelphia and Portland "ill have separate sessions of not more than 45 minutes before the board in behalf of their cities. Lake Placid, N. V, and Salt Lake City will submit bids for the 1968 Winter Games. The Olympic site committee, after listening to the presentations, will decide which two cities should be considered for The stormy weekend caused havoc with the football schedules of tin» Marin Athletic League and the Marin Pop Warner League, with games postponed and reset for later dates. In the Mann Athletic league, the big game between Redwood and Tamalpais High Schools was reset for Thanksgiving morning. Terra Linda and Drake were to play today at 3 p m. and San Rafael and Novato were undecided on the date of their make-up game In the Pop Warner League, the three scheduled Saturday games were reset for Nov. 3.
