Park Before Pro Football Game"

Red Grange and Chic Harley

Chic Harley, Columbus boy, the greatest halfback in Ohio State history, who was all-American in 1916, 1917 and 1919, drove to Dayton with some friends Sunday to watch Red Grangles strut his stuff as a gridiron pro.   Grange made all-America in 1923, 1924 and 1925.  Above they are seen shaking hands just before the game between Grange's Yankees and the Dayton Triagles here Sunday.
