Chicago Bears Sleep Through Lot
Of Frantic Trading in National Loop
Very Important People
By CHARLES MOREY
(A. P. Sportn Writer
This is another in a series on the
National Football League teams.
There has been a lot of Fiantjcj
trading in the National Football
League this summer. But through
it all the Chicag > Beais slept like
so many hibernating gnzzlies.
The Bears are confident that they <
are going to chew up the league'
this year. They are standing pat
on the team that won the Western j
division title last year and then
tripped over the New York tiiants
in the League Championship game
late in December.
Did we say tripped? That's a
weak word. A better description
would be t i say the Bears were
shot stone cold dead skinned, and
tossed on the floor as a rug in the
comfortable Netv Noik hunting
lodge of the Giants.
In case y >u were out of the conn ■
try. the final score was New Nork,
47. Chicago 7. i
The Bears feel that was a freak, j
In the language of the ring they I
"never got off." The Giants hit
a - high as a weather hall >on for
the game. The Bears were lower
than the sub-basement of radio

The Bears have added some
strength this fall, notably a tall,
tough passer named Zeke Rratow-
-ki. Zeke a former Georgia star,
is out of the army, lie looked i
like a budding star a couple of
years ago in a previous trial with
The Bears should not have a |
quarterback priblem. They also,
have Kd Brown, who can throw
the football two thirds the long!I
of the field, the veteran Geoigi
Pilanda and perhaps the gifted Ron
nie Knox. That perhaps will have t<
speak for itself.
Chicago has plenty of free
wheeling ball carriers to go wit I
its overhead game.

There is s one justification for
that line of logic. Football is an
■ emotional game. The Giants werei
minds of the two men involved,
it's a grade-A. 4-star ahsoultely
for-stue feud betwei n Ray Robin-
son and Carmen Busilio.
As you know there have been
many publicity handouts from
their respective training camps
stressing the ill feeling between
the two fighters.
This is the kind iti thing that
veteran fight observers take not
with a grain, not with a bushel hut
with a carload of salt.
However, consider the latest evi-
dence at hand. The two men did
