Jimmy Brown Off To Good Beginning CLEVELAND, Ohio — The nex two Sundays are sure to be of special Interest to the Cleveland Browns and their "Mar vetous Monster," Jimmy Brown Both the game against the Cowboys at Dallas this weekend and the Sept. 29 session with the Los Angeles Rams at Cleveland Stadium are certain to bring back memories to the big Browns' fullback. One is bad, one is good — and both are connected by identical scores. 45-21. Big Jim gets a crack at the bad one first and, based ott Ids almost Incredible feats against Washington, he'll be mow than ready for the challenge. It was in Dallas early, last December when the Browns were officially elminiated from Eastern Division contention as the Cowboys humiliated them 45-21. This also was one of Jim Brown's most discouraging af. ternoons as he was permitted to carry the ball only eight times and wound up with just 29 yards. Coming as it did with 3Ut two games left, this proved the crusher to Brown's hopes for an unprecedented fifth straight 1000-yard season. At the opposite end of the Browns and Big Jim's rainbow is the memory of the Rams last >revious appearance at Cleveland Stadium.' It was In November of 1987 and the Browns, In the middle of a successful drive for the division title, were leaning- heally on a rookie fallback named Jim Brown. The rookie, in turn, leaned heaviiy on the Rams and by the time MVJ final gun signaled a 45-21 Browns' victory, Jim Brown ),.i3 made football history. His Iota! of 237 yards rush ing sti'l stands as the most ever rrtade in ih« 43 -ears of the National Football League.

All he needs is 822 for the current campaign and he's already rolled up 20% of it. Brown also sets a new mark everytlme lie bangs his way Into the end zone. He accomplished this twice against the Redskins to run his record total of rushing touchdowns to 72. He's scored another dozen with passes for an aggregate of 84, second only to Don Hutson's lifetime mark of 105. Many football experts close to Jie Cleveland scene had a feeling 1963 might be Jim Brown's greatest year. If his 162 yards on the ground, another 100 in I Washington are any indicator, the air plus three TD's against!their feeling's no fooling. A PAIR OF ACES PRESTONSBURG, Ky.
