“He became the leader of a

Forty-Niners Adopt Passing
As Chief Weapon for 7953
By the Associated Press
MENLO PARK, Calif., July 29.
—Coach Buck Shaw has decided
it’s time to make his San Fran
cisco Forty-Niners a passing
rather than a running football
“We win the statistics every
year but little else,” Shaw said
of his squad, third in last year’s
National Football League. The
Forty-Niners won 7, lost 5.
“We’ve got to speed up our
scoring, and it just strikes me
we can do it with Y. A. Tittle in
charge,” Shaw continued. Tittle
takes over the quarterback
chores relinquished by the vet
eran Frankie Albert.
Albert “retired” last year, but
decided to play later for Calgary
in the Canadian League. He al
ways was known for his elab
orate ball handling and so the
running game took preference.
Tittle is known for his passing.
Shaw declared ball handling
was more important in college
ball than with the pros. “I’ve
reversed my thinking,” he said.
“As between ball handling and
the pass, I’ll take passing.”
Shaw is counting on McEl
henny, Gordon fioltau, the NFL’s
leading scorer last year, Billy
Wilson and Rookie Harry Bab
cock to handle the receiving end
of his new air offensive.
MENLO PARK, Calif., June 29
(/P). —Ernie Johnson, former
UCLA star halfback, and Bruce
Halliday, a free agent and former
San Jose (Calif.) State guard,

erase the record set in ISJ46

for a bay daughter of oman-

Scott, jr., Lexington, Ky. The
filly went to Duntreath Farm of
P. L. Grissom of Detroit, which
beat out James O. McCue.

of today, he is the outstanding

amazed to see 250-pound Frank

He had good reason. It was
