BOX 463 CANOGA PARK Oilers Meet in Rose Bowl ica. The younger generation finds that jhard to but the more mature some call it recall those times of thrill and tragedy and hap- piness and sadness when Ralph Tommy Jimmy Earl Harry Harian Pietro Barney Oldfield and a hundred more. I mention these not as one who is in- timately acquainted with the but as one who has big ears and listens to older folk tell about the good old times. It is all by way of pointing out that Ontario is noth- ing new. Southern California has been a motor racing mecca for most of this century Beverly Hills and Culver City were board tracks in the days when board tracks were the equivalent of rac- ing's 400. Riding around them at speeds well over 100 miles per hour was like riding circularly around the sides of a coffee so steeply were the boards banked. A driver's ears pointed to the sky and the ground as he sped around the turns. After these came things like with the dash- ing young Frank manipulating his fa- mous when Ascot was out near Lincoln Park in the North Broadway direction There have been sub- sequent Ascot in other locations. Even Gilmore on Fairfax made significant contributions to the for it was here that midget auto racing achieved its first imporant rec- ognition. There were many in fact a great majority who felt auto racing could not be conducted inside a tiny stadium without making hospital cases of the entire but drivers tried it and fans watched it. Eventually it produced many great drivers. Ontario eventually will go the way of all race tracks in if history does not deviate from its paths. Property values will reach such particular- ly this close to Los that it will be financially impossible to maintain the area for racing alone. This is what happened to Beverly Hills in 1923 when Sil Cliff Durant and Jake Dansinger formed the Speedway Association and built their board track on 193 which later was sold to Walter G. McCarty for per acre. For all we Century City is there or part of it anyhow. The racing enthusiasts moved their operation to Culver City and picked a spot bordered approximately by Culver Jefferson Street and Overland behind what now is MGM and oper- Cont. on 3rd Sports When the Los Angeles Rams and the Houston Oilers play their pre- season game in the Rose Bowl Sept. seven Ram players and three Oilers will be returning to the historic stadium as pros after participating in the New Year's Day classic as collegians. Ram tight end Bob Klein is the most familiar with the Rose Bowl turf. At Klein played in three consecutive Rose Bowl games. His Trojan teams lost to in beat In- diana in and lost to Ohio State m 27-16. A Buckeye opponent of Klein that Jan. 1 in '09 was safetyman Ted Pro- now a Ram rookie. Remember the thrilling 42-37 Trojan win over Wisconsin in Well. there are three Ram vet- erans who were members of that Badger team de- fensive backs Ron Smith and Jimmy Nettles and linebacker Jim Purnell. Another Rose Bowl hero was current Ram guard Tom who played tackle on the January of '63 Michigan team that blitzed Oregon 34-7. The win was not Mack's only Pasadena for later he married a Tourna- ment of Roses Anne and set- tled m nearby San Marino. It seems strange that a Ram rookie from Wash- ington could have played in the Rose for the last time the Huskies par- ticipated was in 1964. a sophomore then was running back Jeff who has been with the Rams as a rookie for four years now after being injured in each of the previous three pre- seasons. The Huskies lost to Illinois in that 17-7. For Jim Bierne was a star end on the '07 Purdue team that lost to linebacker George Webster was on the 'GO Michigan State team that fell to and rookie receiver Terry DeKraai was on the recent USC teams. Not all the Rose Bowl returnees are of recent vintage. Ram offensive coach Ray Prochaska was an end on the Nebraska team that lost to in 1941. head Ram coach George as a coach at Whhtier College m the was un- beaten in Rose Bowl bouts with Cal Tech and Oxy.
