The National Football League',s
final weekend of action today finds
the Cleveland Browns with the
Eastern Division title sewed up,
but the Chicago Bears still have
a chance for Western Division su-
premacy if they can whip the
Philadelphia Eagles and the first-
place Los Angeles Rams bow to
the Green Bay Packers on the
Coast.
With George Halas now in his
final year as head coach of the
Bears, the Windy City eleven is
beginning to regain its stature as
one of the powerhouses of pro
football.

Bears was a lanky, glue-fingered
end from Florence State Teachers
College in Alabama by the name
of Harlon Hill. Unheard of at the
outset of the 1954 season, the elu-
sive Hill has established himself as
the outstanding pass receiver in
the NFL. Halas compares him to
Ken Kavanaugh, one of the Bear's
greatest pass-catching flankers.
Last year also saw George Blan-
da come into his own at the quar-
terback post. However, Blanda re-
ceived a shoulder separation at
the half-way mark of the sched-
ule and Zeke Bratkowski, passing
sensation from Georgia, blossomed
into a rookie star.

Last Title in '46
Not since 1946 have the Chi-
cagoans. reigned as kings of the
football world. The Bears de-
feated the New York Giants in
the title game that year, 24-14.
Sid Luckman, one of pro football's
greatest signal - callers, climaxed
the Bears' come - from - behind
battle in that contest with a bril-
liant touchdown run.
For the past several seasons,
loyal Bear fans have been forced
to retreat to their pleasant mem-
ories of the great Bear teams of
the early 1940's. From 1940
through 1943 the Chicagoans be-
came known as the "Monsters of
the Midway," compiling a record
of 62 wins, six losses, and a tie.
Those teams, considered by
many as the most powerful foot-
ball juggernaut of all time, con-
sisted of a star-studded cast. The
Bear's rock-like line of that era
was anchored by Danny Fortmann,
greatest of all Bear guards. Luck-
man master-minded the offense,
aided by the running of the fa-
mous Ironton Flyer, George Mc-
Afee.
Billy Hewitt, a Michigan im-
mortal and one of the greatest pro
ends, also helped the men of Halas
to some of their most spectacular
victories, including the memorable
rout of the Washington Redskins
in the 1940 championship game,
73-0. The list of Bear all-timers
incldes many more fabulous names.
With Red Grange and Bronko Na-
gurski, Halas made the team he
originally organized the largest
drawing card in the pro game.
Halas Building
This season, the pennant-starved
Bear fans are beginning to detect
signs in the present aggregation
resembling those of the one-time
"Monsters." Halas has been build-
ing a formidable powerhouse for
the past three seasons in order to
endow his predecessor with a team
of great potentialities.
Halas, famed for his thorough
scouting system, came up with sev-
eral "sleepers" in last year's draft
selection. Prize catch for the

The Bears were again short-
changed when Uncle Sam called on
Bratkowski at the conclusion of
regular season play. Again Wrig-
ley Field fans were in for a heart-
ening surprise when Ed Brown, a
young prospect from San Francis-
co University, developed into quite
a quarterback.
The Chicagoans, for the first
time in several seasons, can once
again boast a formidable run-
ning attack. Rick Casares, Halas',
"hunch" draft pick of two years'
ago, after completing a two year
hitch in the Army, has developed
into a break-away threat. Mar-,
quette's Ron Drzewiecki and Bob-
by Watkins of Ohio State are also
dangerous rookie halfbacks.
Jagade Big Addition
Rounding out the Chicago back-
field corps is Harry "Chick" Ja-
gade, a pile-driving fullback whom
Halas obtained from Cleveland in
exchange for Fred Morrison last
year. Besides being a tremendous-
ly powerful runner, Jagade has the
speed and deceptiveness to sweep
the ends and break loose for the
long gains which are the trade
marks of truly great fullbacks.
To top off this bright situation,
Halas can point to a rugged line
manned by such stalwarts as Bill
Bishop, Fred Williams, and Bill
George. All are four year veter-
ans and all are under 26. Bill
Wightkin, at 28, is the oldest mem-
ber of the offensive, line. Since
many pro linemen don't reach
their prime until their late 20's,
things are looking very bright "up
front" for the Chicagoans.
On defense, Don Kindt, one of
the squad's oldest members in
years of service, is the outstand-
ing pass defender. He is receiv-
ing help from several youngsters,
foremost of which is Ray Gene
Smith, a sophomore defensive
back.I
Ed Sprinkle, four times an all-
pro selection, and George Connor
are the veterans of the defensive
line. Sprinkle had planned to re-
tire, but decided to play this
season, knowing that it would be
Halas' last.
This is the team that George
Halas and Company hope to turn
over to a yet unknown coach next
season. They hope to bolster the
squad with some more draft picks
this year. Halas and his staff have
put a lot of work into this team

BOBBY WATKINS
... giving Bears lift
and even if the pennant flag
doesn't fly from the Wrigley Field
flag pole this year, one thing is
for certain - the Chicago Bears
are on their way back up as a
football power. Once again the
word is around the league to look
out for the "Monsters of the Mid-
way."

MADISON, Wis: (W) - Captain
Dallas Dobbs pumped in 26 points
Saturday as the Kansas Jayhawks
downed Wisconsin, 74-66, in a na-
tionally televised basketball game.
A crowd of 4,000 at the Wiscon-
3in Field House watched the sharp-
shooting Jayhawks build up a 35-
19 lead at halftime and put on
point bursts just wheal it seemed
the Badgers might draw close.
At no stage in the contest, ex-
cept for a brief time early in the
first half when Wisconsin led 11-
10, did the Badgers draw within
six points of the Jays.
Miller Scores 24
Dobbs was the game's high
scorer with nine field goals and
eight of nine free throws. The
Badgers' Dick Miller tossed in 24
in a losing cause.
It was Kansas' third victory in
a row. Wisconsin now has a 1-2
record.
This was Wisconsin's first show-
ing on a national television hookup
from Madison and their second in
history.
The Jayhawks beat Northwest-
ern and Wichita in their two pre-
vious starts.
