Pro Bears Down Detroitlions, 49-0 Chicogoons Threaten To Top All Records CHICAGO — (AP) — The National football league's record book will be as obsolete as last year's atlas unless .some of the pro circuit's better minds contrive a defense to stop the touchdown-mad Chicago Bears. The Bears, averaging Just under 44 points a game, continue to show power, deception and speed such M pro football never has seen before. The champions, who already have aet new marks for most yards in a single game (613) and most yards by passes in a game (376), need only to maintain their pace to rewrite the book. They are on the way to season records for most yards, most yards by passes, most first downs, moot points and most touchdowns. Yesterday they rolled up 20 first downs in belting the Detroit Lions, 49 to 0. only one short of the league-record for one game. This waa the Bears' fourth straight victory and left them and the new New York Gianta aa the only unbeaten teams. New York, held to a 7-7 stalemate for two periods, snapped back with 21 points in the second half to whip Pittsburgh, 21 to 7, for five wins in row. Persistent Green Bay and Washington clung to the heels of the sectional leaden. Green Bay eked out a 17 to. 14 victory over Cleveland on Don HuUnn's last minute field goal for the Packers' fifth win in six games. Washington, likewise rallying |n the waning minutes, went Columbus Holds New York Americans to a Seven to Seven Tie NEW YORK — 'AP> — Tommy Harmon and John Kimbroueh didn't do much more than pot each other encouraRinirlr on their shoulder in their professional football debut yesterday, but, they may have done nomethinu vastly important for the struggling American league. When 25.383 fans paid their way Into Yankee stadium to aw the two farnou* All-Americans perform and. incidentally, to watch the Columbus Bulls and the New York Americans struggle to a 7-7 ti*. it marked the first time the ambitious second major league had drawn really important mowy and cut seriou.iiy into the patronage of the prosperous National league. This, of course, was what the new owner of the Americans. William Cox. was counting on when he paid Kimbrough and Harmon tl,500 each to ipet out there and fight. It may have been only a one-day wonder. Such a crowd may never turn out again to »*e the Americans, even if Harmon and Kimbrough get themselves into playing condition and put on the kind of football of which they arc capable. But for one aftmioon, at least, you can bet that the National league magnates had a headache. After the game, in which he scored his team's touchdown on a nifty reverse from Kimbrough. Harmon said he didnt know whether he would be able to try it again next Sunday, when the Americans play Buffalo here. The great Michigan Star still is determined to be an announcer, and he won't know until the midrfle of the week whether he can be spared from his duties at the mike. There is no doubt in Kimbrough's mind. He thoroughly liked it yesterday, including the rate of pay. Whether he was overpaid must be left to Owner Cox. John gained a net of only 35 yards in those nine tries, and once he was tossed for a 12-yard loss. But he looked good on his blocking, ewn though they wont pay blockera fIJft per tame. Michigan Passes ieat the Wildcats Tom Kuxma (right).

Only one center, one tackle, two guards and four backs saw service with the exception of the Wolverine starters. Thus Michigan apparently will be forced to play iron- man football against the Minnesota team, which has at least two good men for every spot in the baekfleld and Une. The Gophers took another romp Saturday at Pittsburgh's expense, 3* to 0, one point tecs than the margin of Michigan's win over Pitt. Bruce Smith, Minnesota's great halfback, was hurt Saturday, but is expected to be ready for part-time service against the smart and alert Wolverines. Northwestern e Iocs, brought about by two sooting passes tossed by Tom Kusma, left Minneaota. Michigan and Ohio State undefeated in the conference. The Wildcats face another tough test Saturday, invading Columbus for a look at Paul Brown's first Buckeye product. Ohio State was unimpreuive in defeating,Purdue Saturday, 16 to 14, the Boilermakers' late rally producing two touchdowns. Two teams which have just started clicking after a weak start, Indiana and Wisconsin, smash head- on at Madison. Indiana followed up three defeats by surprising Nebraska, 31 to 13, with a coordinated ground and aerial offensive. Wisconsin, victim of Marquette and Northwestern, won as it pleased over Iowa. 23-0. This game will be Indiana's first in the league. Iowa will try to recover Saturday against speedy Purdue at Lafayette. Purdue has lost one encounter in the conference and Iowa two. Illinois, 40 to • victor over Drake Saturday, invades South Bend to furnish opposition to Prank Leahy's undefeated Notre Dame eleven..

It will be homecoming for S. H. S. and also the final home football session. It looks as if the stadium will be filled to overflowing for this game. The teams appear to be on a par and it is either team's ball game. Sterling must win to remain in the running for North Central Illinois conference honors again.

It won't be long before votes are taken to name the outstanding horse of 1M1. and Alsab roust be reckoned with, although he's only two years old and must compete in balloting with a.fellow named Whirl- away. Whlrlaway, three-year-old champion, triple-crown winner and leading money-earner of 1M1. seems currently to have a big edge for the "horse of the year" title, but he has retired for the season while Alsab still is going strong. Alsab's bid for the national championship appears "to hinge on the Pimlico Special October 30. He has been invited to race against older horses in this event, but his owners, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Saoath of Chicago, have not yet accepted him. If he goes in the Special. Alsab will face such campaigners as Mar- ketwist. Big Pebble and Peneion, To defeat such horses at mile and three- sixteenths .would add greatly to Al- sab's prestige. There's a real precedent, too, for the winner of the Special to be acclaimed as "horse of the year." Previous winners, War Admiral, Sea- biscuit %nd Challedon all were champions in their day.
