Detroit Lions' Layne Touted as One of Greatest
Passing Quarterbacks in Annals of NFL'

YPSILANTI, Mich. - Old Fa-
ther Time, the great equalizer in
all fields of endeaver, may be the
only person who can keep Bobby
Layne, the Detroit Lions' ace quar-
terback, from rewriting all the
passing records in the National
Football League.
Layne, who has paced the De-
troit Lions to three straight West-
ern Division championship and
two World titles, has long been
considered one of the game's finest
a all-around quarterbacks but his
passing achievements have often
been overlooked in favor of his
great leadership ability, his abili-
ty, as. a runner, and his burning
"will to win."
Layne Tops Baugh
Sammy Baugh of Washington
and Sid Luckman of the Chicago
Bears, generally regarded as pro
football's top p a s s e r s down
through the years, both have to
take a back seat to the Lions' ace
in every passing department, on
the basis of average - per - year
passing gains.
Baugh compiled his sparkling
passing totals during a sixteen.
year career, Luckman compiled
his in twelve seasins, while Layne
has played in seven campaigns for
the defending Western Division
champions.,
Octogenarian
1 To Direct Nashua
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y. R)
Trainer Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons
decided yesterday he would travel
to thicago and personally super-
vise the final conditioning of
Nashua fo rhis $100,000 winner-
take-all match race against Swaps
at Washington Park Aug. 31.
The 81-year-old trainer of the
colt remained in New York while
Nashua raced in such events as
the Kentucky Derby.
"It's such an important race,"
he said. "I feel I ought tobe with
Nashua and personally direct his
;' training."

Baugh tops all NFL passers in
completitions for his 16 years ca-
reer, connecting on 1,709 aerials,
for an average of 106 completions
per season. Luckman ranks second
with 904 completitions for an av-
erage of slightly over 75 per sea-
son.
124 Completions Per Year
Meanwhile, Layne, after seven
seasons has completed 874 passes,
which averages out to 124-plus
completions per season. Layne is

Olympic Bidc
MELBOURNE (A)-Russia is
one of 13 countries who yester-
day accepted Melbourne's in-
vitation to compete in the 1956
Olympic Games.

director of the games, said that

cepted, and with 16 months to
go before the books close he ex-
pects 12 more countries to enter.
a cinch to eclipse Luckman's rec-
ords in '55 . . . but only time will
tell if he can smash Baugh's rec-
ords.
Layne already has moved into
second place in the standings in
number of passes attempted.
Baugh, averaged 188 attempts for
his 16-year NFL career for a total
of 3,016 tries.
Layne has averaged 260 aerials
for each of his seven seasons for
a total of 1,825 passes. Luckman,
with 1,744 attempts in 12 seasons
and Bob Waterfield with 1,618
tries in eight seasons follow Layne
in the standings.
7.2 Passing Miles
With almost 7.2 miles gained by
passing, 12,659 yards to be exact,
Layne currently ranks third in
yards gained passing. He has av-
eraged 1,809 yards by the aerial
route throughout his career as
compared with Baugh's average of

1,380 -yards over a sixteen year
span for 22,085 yards.
Luckman's mark of 14,683 yards
with an average of 1,223 yards for
each of twelve campaigns puts him
in second place. Layne has a
chance to eclipse Luckman's rec-
ords in '55 if he comes up with a
top season.
Ahead in TD Average
In the all-important touchdown-
pass department, Layne again
shows the way on the basis on the
basis of his yearly average of 14.7
TDs for each of his playing years,
as compared to Baugh's final mark
11.6 touchdowns per season for a
total of 187 scores, and Luck-
man's 11.5 touchdown mark as
computed on 139 scores in 12 years
play. Layne's touchdown total to
date is 103.
Another of the league top pass-
ing records was within Layne's
reach in 1951 when he fired 26
scoring aerials, just two shy of
Luckman's all-time record of 28.
"See What Happens"
Layne, not one to worry about
the record books, merely shrugs off
his great record and admits, "I've
had a lot of good luck since com-
ing into the NFL and I hope :oj
continue playing for some time
yet . . . but I'm not aiming at any
records. I just like to play football
and plan to continue as long as I
can . . . to see what happens."
Coach Buddy Parker, one of
Layne's staunchest supporters,
feels the "sky is the limit" where
his quarterback is concerned. "I
don't see any reason. why Layne
can't play for at least another
four or five years . . . and maybe
more . . . and if so, there isn't a
passing record in the book that's
out of his reach.'
