[ ...AugNOTifiSgtaromrcng.] Browns Lick Hornets In Exhibition, 21-0; 49ers Edge Bills By th« Associated Press TOLEDO, Ohio, Aug. 15.—The Cleveland Browns, who will open defense of their All-American Conference championship in a couple of weeks, whipped the Chi cago Hornets, 21-0, yesterday in the Midwest’s first pro exhibition, and only once did the Chicagoans threaten. The Browns capitalized on three breaks—two fumbles and a pass interception — to set up their touchdowns. Otto Graham scored on a 29-yard run on the open ing period, when trapped while looking for a receiver, and Ed Sustersic, rookie fullback, scored on plunges of three and one yards. Lou Broza kicked all three points. The work of Graham and Sus tersic, plus the running and de fensive work of Warren Lahr in the last half, featured the champs’ performance. Ray Ramsey put the Hornets in scoring position in the second period with a 58-yard punt return, going out on the Browns’ 10. How ever, the half ended with Johnny Clement plunging to the two-yard line. Albert Leads 49ers To Victory Over Bills SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 15 (i?*).— Frankie Albert connected with long passes for two touchdowns and the San Francisco 49ers scored a third on a lengthy run to defeat the Buffalo Bills, 21-10, yes terday.

Buffalo tied the score late in the first quarter when Rex Bum-j gardner went 66 yards off left! tackle for a touchdown. The Bills1 picked up a three point lead in the second on Chet Adams’ per fect placement from the 49ers 42 yard line. In the third period, San Fran cisco took the lead again with halfoack Eddie Carr going around left end 24 yards for a score. Joe Vetrano kick made made it good gain for 14-10.

N.W. NO. 7900 Selection of 13 Backs for Redskins Touah Problem for Coach Whelchel By Lewis F. Atchison Star Staff Correspondent LOS ANGELES, Aug. 15.—Rob Goode’s arrival in camp has focused attention on the battle developing for positions in the Washington Redskins’ backfield, a scrap that may not be decided before the first league gam£ Goode, who with Tackles Laurie Niemi and Len Szafaryn, came here following the All-Star game at Chicago last Friday, was tested on defense in scrimmage the fol lowing day and emerged with a Triple-A rating. His bronzed, well-proportioned frame and speed afoot are enough to guarantee a long trial. He easily is one of the best looking rookie ball toters the Tribe ever brought to camp. As of today, the backs seem divided into two classes, those virtually sure of a job and those still trying to make the grade. Fixtures, in addition to Goode, include Sammy Baugh, Harry Gil mer and Tommy Mont, who’ll handle the quarterbacking. Harry Dowda, Dan Sandifer and Eddie Saenz are sure shots for half back positions, while Ed Quirk and Dick Poillon are the outstanding fullbacks at this writing. Veiled iir uncertainty are the futures of Howie Livingston, whose knee is bothering him; Steve Ba garus, Jack Kirby, Howie Hartley and Brian Bell, all halfbacks. Full backs Mike Micka and Tom Coch ran are in the same doubt-ridden boat. If the Redskins carry only 13 backs, as planned, these seven men will fight it out for the four remaining positions. It is a trying situation for Coach Billick Whelchel, and, paradoxi cally, rather nice, for he’ll have a choice of some better than aver age backs. Livingston, for ex ample, not only vw>uld be inval uable on defense with a sound knee, but helpful on offense. Kirby, a half-pint of unbottled speed, would give rival blood hounds a merry romp in any bro ken field. Hartley seems to have more confidence with a year of pro experience and is running well. Mike Micka’s wealth of line backing experience and deadly tackling are in his favor, and Tom Cochran is rated the second best blocker on Ihe team behind Quirk. Bell, seemingly slow compared to others, nevertheless runs har-d and hits like a battering ram. He's a runner who picks up additional yardage after being tackled, a good, tough youngster. What’s wrong with them? First, only 13 backs will be carried this year and three of those will be needed to man the wobbly quarter backing post. The remaining 10 must be fast, strong, alert and versatile backs who can be shifted without lessening the team’s power. Some on the doubtful list have yet to master the T forma tion. others are overweight and still others are too slow. Whelchel won’t cut anybody until absolutely certain the player can t help the team. He thinks the 40 men presently in camp are far too few as it is and has his fingers crossed against serious in juries that might cut deeper. On the other hand, he doesn't want to waste time with men who can’t help the team. The backfleld is rather well de fined today, but the next 10 days will be crucial ones for the seven who have not yet proved them selves. ^ While the remainder of the squad had yesterday off, Niemi and Szafaryn had an afternoon skull session with Turk Edwards while Wilbur Moore worked with Goode. It’ll be two months before they catch up with their new teammates. Potomac, Old Dominion Divide Rowing Honors Virginia Boat Club was back in Richmond today determined to even the score at its next meet ing with Old Dominion Boat Club of Alexandria and Potomac Boat Club of Washington. •The three held a rowing regatta at Potomac yesterday and the Potomac and Old Dominion acted real neighborly, sharing the top spot with 4 points each.
