CHICAGO, Dec. 14.-(UP)-The Chi-
cago Bears scored 24 points in a wild
second period today to defeat theI
Green Bay Packers 33 to 14 and win
the Western Division playoff in theI
National Professional Football League]
and the right to meet the New York1
aGiants here next Sunday for the
league championship.
With 43,425 spectators looking on,j
the Bears tore up and down the turf
of Wrigley Field in that second stanza
for three touchdowns, three conver-
sion points and a field goal, gaining
a 30-7 half-time lead. It was no job
protecting that margin thereafter.
The Packers had made a terrific
battle of it for the opening period,
scoring the first touchdown after one
minute, 56 seconds to take a 7-0 lead.
The Bears scored on Hugh Gallar-
neau's, 81-yard punt return for a
touchdown just before the period
Bob Snyder's 23-yard field goal,
which opened the ,second period, put
the Chicagoans ahead, 9-7, and from
then off it was strictly the Bears.
The Packers got a mere 35 yards
by rushing compared to 267 for Chi-
cago. But their passing game, despite
a sharp Bear defense around end
Don Hutson, was hot, and they
amassed 222 yards in the air to 48
for Chicago.
Only one of the two Packer touch-
downs came as a result of passes.
Their first, in fact, was born of a
Chicago fumble by Gallarneau on the
opening kickoff, which Ray Riddick'
scooped up on the Bears' 18. Clarke
Hinkle scored from the two .and con-
The Bears' first score was spectac-
ular. Hinkle punted late in the initial
period and ballarneau took it on his
own 19 and dashed to a touchdown
behind great blocking.

might have had another that was dis-
puted. ;Braidford was easily the
most aggressive Wolverine on the ice.
Also, not to be forgotten is the fact
that Braidford was one of the very
few Michigan puckmen who kept up
a fast play wthout letting up when
"the team lost the puck.
One possibility that almost seems
sure is that Michigan will have
greater successes next semester if
they can ice some of those five' in- I
eligible players. Adding to the im-
proved defense a stronger front line
will make the Wolverines a formid.
able foe for any sextet. Coming up
within the next two months will be
some of the toughest collegiate and
amateur competition in this country
and Canada. Immediate possibili-
ties of victories are remote, but the
future might tell a different story.
