NEWS AND NOTES
REG DWYER MUCH IMPROVED TODAY
NOVEMBER 26 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - "Reg" Dwyer has
better than an even chance for recovery. That is the opinion of
the physicians who are taking care of the Packer football star
who had his left arm and leg mangled while working in the
railroad yards here Friday night. The injured members were
amputated Saturday, and it is said that Dwyer rallied from the
shock as well if not better than could be expected. Unless
complications set in, it is expected that he will pull through.
According to the doctors, it was only Dwyer's superb physical
condition that enabled him to survive injuries that would have
quickly killed the average man. "Remember Dwyer". That was
the Packers' slogan in the Stambaugh game here yesterday.
And well they did. Besides playing their hardest, scores of the
contest were flashed to the hospital every quarter. Despite his
condition, Dwyer showed a keen interest in the game and
wanted to know how it was coming out. Probably there has
been no accident in a long while that has stirred Green Bay to
greater extent. Expressions of sorrows over Dwyer's untimely
injuries could be heard on all sides. There was one continual
stream of telephone calls at the hospital inquiring about his
condition and his friends swamped the hospital wardens with
packages of flowers...PLAN BENEFIT GAME: A benefit game
is being planned for Dwyer. It will be staged a week from
Sunday at Hagemeister park. According to the present plans,
the best football talent in the city from the East and West side
will clash in a gridiron argument. Old timers who haven't been
in action for a long time will don the togs again for this contest.
Every man on the Packer squad will be playing as well as the
cream of the high school stars.

LAPHAMS WILL PLAY PACKERS ON SUNDAY
NOVEMBER 27 (Racine Journal News) - The Lapham A. C. football eleven will board the rattlers for Green Bay Saturday night and will meet the strong Green Bay Packers for the state football championship on Sunday. The north siders came out of the Normal game in good condition, and with a light signal drill Saturday morning will be fit to give the Packers a battle for the state honors. The Packers, are favorites due to their victories over strong Wisconsin and upper Michigan teams, but the Laphams staged a comeback Thanksgiving and seem to have recovered from their recent dump and should give the Green Bay eleven strong opposition. The Laphams will be outweighed when they stack up against the northerners. but will more than make up for this handicap in their speed. Both teams are expected to make good use of the forward pass as the Laphams have McNutt and Jordan and the Packers have Dalton and Lambeau who are adapt receivers.
