A tornado in Blue and Gold, that sounds its mighty tumult in the names and deeds of men like Bob Waterfield and Tom Harmon,Fred Gehrke and Jack Wilson,Jim Benton and Riley Matheson, Jack Banta and Mike Holovak, Steve Pritko and Ray Hamilton. A tornado that strikes with the fury of a Harmon or a Gherke in a blaze of blue bounding goalward down in the field or that lashes out high and far in an aerial thrust where Waterfield and Benton or Washington and Strode arch their wizardry across the evening sky. A tornado that is known as the Los Angeles Rams Football Club, champions of the world as based on their 15 to 14 victory over their opponents of tonight, the Washington Redskins, in a game played last December in zero weather in Cleveland. Yes, the champions have come West, bringing with them National League football and all that this 26-year-old circuit represents or implies. This is the first team and the first major league in any sport to expand to the Pacific Coast, and many see in the gridiron move westward a possible or even probable forerunner of similar expansion or migration on the part of major league baseball. [[Lower bottom caption]] Having a National League team in Los Angeles, with the mammoth Memorial Coliseum as its home field, means that Los Angles sports fans will see during regular league play, and not merely in post season exhibitions, the greatest players the future will provide. Had this happened 20 years ago, there would have been seen here in regular championship competition rather than in exhibitions only such gridiron giants as Red Grange, Bronko Nagurski, Cliff Battles, Dutch Clark, Mel Heln, Don Hustson, Benny Friedman,johnny Blood, Bill Hewitt, Harry Newman, Beattie Feathers, Clark Hinkle, Joe Stydahar, Whizzer White, Cecil Isbell, Davey O'Brien and the rest.
