INDIAN PACKING SQUAD TO REPRESENT CITY
AUGUST 13 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Indian Packing Corporation will be the representative semi-pro football team in Green Bay this fall. It will be the strongest aggregation of pigskin chasers that has ever been gathered in this city. The football fans of Green Bay are going to be treated to an A1 class of pigskin chasing during the next three months. According to the present plans, the season will open Sunday September 14 and the final game will be played on the Sunday following Thanksgiving day. This gives ten playing dates and the strongest teams in the state will be scheduled. All the home games are to be played at Hagemeister's park and plans are now underway to rope off the playing field and keep it in A1 condition...HUSKY SQUAD AVAILABLE: The "Packers" will have a splendid squad to pick from. Included in the list is a number of former college stars and some veterans who saw service in the gridiron battles
overseas. A partial list of the players, who are slated as
candidates are the following: Lambeau, Nichols, R. Dwyer,
"Dutch" Dwyer, McLean, Gallagher, N. Abrams, C. Zoll, M.
Zoll, Martell, Prager, Oustermann, Ladrow, Cohen, Sauber,
Ruel, Flatley, Getzloff, Lurquin, Glick, Riley, Powers,

Wilson, Jirgeau, Hawley, Wheeler, DuFresne, Koher,
Morgan, House, Muldoon and McKenna. The final meeting
of the Indians was held on Monday evening in the Press-
Gazette editorial rooms and another important conference
is scheduled for Thursday. It is important that all of the
above mentioned players be in attendance...UNIFORMS
FOR EIGHTEEN: Complete uniforms for eighteen or twenty
men will be secured and a full squad will be kept intact the
playing season. Practice will be held three times every
week and the men reporting regularly for the workouts will
be given the first chance in the games. Last year, the city
team went through a successful season without losing a
game, although the Marinette-Menominee eleven played
the Bays to a tie in the closing argument of the season. It is
the plan of the management to keep the game on the same
high plane as it was last year. Rowdy tactics on the playing
field will be barred and there will be plenty of police
protection to handle the crowds. Negotiations are
underway for games with the best teams in the state.
Appleton, Oshkosh, Menominee, Marinette and other
squads will be seen here during the first half of the season, and, by that time, if the attendance warrants, contests will be booked with Milwaukee, La Crosse and Madison.
