Wisconsin star and was selected by Walter Camp for the All-American team in 1916.
KAUKAUNA LEGION SQUAD WILL PLAY PACKERS SUNDAY
SEPTEMBER 28 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The American Legion football team of Kaukauna, composed of the best football players in the Fox River valley will face the Packers on Sunday afternoon at Hagemeister park. The war legion's organization, which has the backing of the paper mills at Kaukauna, is sparing no expense to get an all-star aggregation together for the game with the Packers. According to word received here, a number of former college stars will be seen in their lineup....RESUME PRACTICE: The Packers resume their practice stunts this evening at the plant gridiron. With but a couple of exceptions the Green Bay eleven came out of the Chicago argument in pretty good shape. All of the regulars will be ready to start in Sunday's game. It is likely that there may be a couple of changes in the lineup. Although well satisfied with the showing against Chicago, the management is planning to bolster up a couple of weak spots.
PACKERS GETTING READY FOR CLASH AGAINST KAUKAUNA
SEPTEMBER 29 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Packers resumed their practice stunts last night at the plant gridiron and it was one of the best workouts of the season. Twenty players were out in uniform and Dalton kept the men going at a stiff pace until darkness put an end to the work. The Packers' stock took a jump last night when Al Petcka, star tackle of last year's team made his appearance. Petcka is rated as one of the best linemen in this part of the state and his return to the lineup will add a lot of strength to the scrimmage front...HARD GAMES AHEAD: A stiff schedule is facing the Packers. Manager Murphy has closed for all his game for the next six weeks. After the Kaukauna game on Sunday, Stambaugh plays here October 10; Marinette, October 17; De Pere, October 24; Beloit, October 31; Milwaukee All-Stars, November 7. On November 14, the Packers battle at Beloit in a return game. November 12, Ishpeming plays here, and a big contest is pending for Thanksgiving day.
HOEFFEL WILL OFFICIATE IN SUNDAY GAMES
SEPTEMBER 29 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Joe Hoeffel, former Wisconsin football candidate and a Walter Camp All-American selection, will handle all professional football games in this city for the rest of the season. Manager Neil Murphy of the Packers closed negotiations with the ex-Badger star on Tuesday. Hoeffel, up to this time, has consented to act in some minor officiating capacity but Manager Murphy made the inducement so strong that Hoeffel accepted the offer to run the games. With Hoeffel in charge, it is a certainty that the petty squabbling of last Sunday will be a thing of the past.
KAUKAUNA ELEVEN LINEUP IS FAST
SEPTEMBER 30 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The
football team representing the American Legion post is
working hard to get in shape for the gridiron fracas with
the Packers at Green Bay on Sunday afternoon. Star
players from many of the Fox River valley towns will be
seen in action with Kaukauna and there is also a
chance that "Cub" Buck may play with the Legion
squad. He has been coaching them for the past two
weeks. The probable lineup of the war veterans'
aggregation is as follows: Ends, Gonsharic, Bienzel,
Eimmerman; tackles, Wiggers, Gainey; guard, Van
Compel, Leher, Frey; center, Reumicke; backs,
Regenfuss, Brown, Husting, Hansen, Brauer, McMonon,
and Faust. F.X. Grogan will act as the Kaukauna official.
KAUKAUNA MAY USE CUB BUCK IN GAME HERE
SEPTEMBER 30 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - There is
a possibility that an all-American footballer may be seen
in action Sunday at Hagemeister. "Cub" Buck, former
Wisconsin star who is signed with Jim Thorpe's Canton
Tiger team, may hold down a line position for Kaukauna
against the Packers. Buck, owing to a business
connection, was forced to delay his department to
Canton for a week. He is employed by a Kaukauna
paper mill and, it is stated, that he has been coaching
and practice with the Legion team, during the week.
PACKERS SELECT CURLEY LAMBEAU FIELD
SEPTEMBER 30 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Curley
Lambeau, one of the greatest football men ever
developed here, has been chosen field captain of the
Packers. This is two years in a row that Lambeau has
been leading the Green Bay professional eleven.
Lambeau has a statewide reputation as a gridiron star.
He played three years at East high, twice being
selected on all state teams, after graduating from the Hilltoppers institution, Lambeau went to Notre Dame and in his freshmen year made the varsity team, playing fullback. He is rated as one of the best throwers of
forward passes in the middle west and his drop kicking ability has won many a game for the Green Bay teams.
CHANGES MADE IN PACKERS' LINEUP
OCTOBER 1 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Packers engaged in their best workout of the season last night on the plant gridiron. Coach Dalton has about 22
players out in uniform and a stiff scrimmage was
engaged in. Several changes were made in the lineup.
Gavin, who played center on last year's team, was back
at the pivot position, while Al Petcka resumed his old
tackle job. Klauss was playing guard in place of Carl
Zoll, who failed to report for the workout. Manager
Murphy has ordered an extra practice for tomorrow
afternoon. The squad will engage in a signal workout at
Hagemeister park after the high school doubleheader.
KAUKAUNA LEGION BATTLES PACKERS HERE ON
OCTOBER 2 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The
American Legion team of Kaukauna will be the
opponents of the Green Bay Packers on Sunday
afternoon at Hagemeister park. The game will start
promptly at 3 o'clock. Twelve minute periods are
scheduled. Joe Hoeffel, former Wisconsin football
captain, will referee. Grogan of Kaukauna umpired. The
invading team is composed of the best football players
in the Fox River valley and reports from the Paper Mill
village carry the news that their squad of pigskin
chasers feel confident of taking a fall out of the Green
Bay aggregation. The appearance of "Cub" Buck, all-
American star in the Kaukauna lineup is still uncertain.
The Kaukauna management although including his
name in the lineup, won't guarantee his appearance in
the game. Fritz Gavin will probably star at center for the
Packers, while Al Petcka is slated for one of the tackle
positions. The other players will start off the same as
