GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - In the hardest fought game of football that has been staged at Hagemeister park this season, the Green Bay Packers nosed out a 9 to 0 victory over the Milwaukee All-Stars in a sensational exhibition of pigskin chasing. The invading All-Stars
from the Cream City more than lived up to advance
notices. Reinforced by a half dozen candidates, they
cut loose with a brand of football that was of the A1
variety and, not until Lambeau made good on a field
goal in the fourth quarter, did the Packers have the
game on ice. The Brewers had a splendid football
machine. They were up and at it every minute and it
was only the superior combination play of the Packers
that paved the way for a victory. The visitors had the
best set of line plunging backs that have played here
this year. Gauer, Kinney and Coogan ripped big holes in
the Packers line for many a gain but the home team
always braced when in the danger zone and cut short
WILSON BOOTED 'EM
One big factor in the Packers victory was Wilson's
kicking. The big lineman was at his best Sunday and he
averaged about 45 yards on a punt. It was his trusty
right foot that booted the ball far out of danger when in
the shadow of the goal posts. The Packers' bootsmith
outdistanced Coogan 20 yards on every kick. "Butch"
Hayes, a Green Bay product, played a whale of a game
at end for the visitors. Douglas at center and Kinney,
who substituted for Gauer, were also in the limelight
continually. Aside from Wilson, Wagner and Leaper
were the luminaries for the Packers although the entire
team showed their best work of the season.
PACKERS KICK OFF
Milwaukee lost the toss and the Packers chose to
defend the west goal and boot to the visitors. Wilson
kicked to Coogan and McLean tackled the visitor so
hard that he was out for the count. On the first line up,
Milwaukee fumbled and it was the Packers' ball on
MIlwaukee's 25 yard line. Four scrimmages failed to net
the necessary 10 yards and the visitors regained the
pigskin. The Brewers were thrown back on two plays
and they punted out of danger. A split formation by the
Packers went wrong and Butch Hayes covered the ball
for Milwaukee in midfield. The visitors made a first down
on three plays. An offside penalty set them back 5 yards. Miller and Coogan pounded through for another first down. The visitors were thrown for a loss on an attempted pass and they kicked to McLean on the Packers' 20 yard line. On this play, the Packers were penalized 15 yards for holding.

Kinney received the kickoff and he ran through the entire Packer team with the exception of Medley. The little quarterback nabbed him on the Packers' 30 yard line. O'Connor failed in an attempted field goal as time was called for the half.

NEWS AND NOTES
LOOKING 'EM OVER
NOVEMBER 8 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Jimmy Coffeen pulled the best one of the afternoon during the opening quarter. While acting as head linesman, he yelled "Marquette offside". There was a lot of truth in his words at that...Klaus played well against the veteran Douglass. The pair had quite a battle in the center of the line. The Packers' center was forced to exit during the third period due to an injured ankle...The crowd was late in coming. At 2 o'clock there were but a few spectators in the south bleachers. However, when the whistle blew, the stands were filled and there was a "fringe" around the gridiron...The Milwaukee collegians displayed a lot of scrap and they were trying to get all that was coming to them. Even at that, the game was quite free from squabbling as there were only a few arguments...The visitors were togged out in sweaters borrowed from another Milwaukee team, the Right Laundrys. Some of the sweaters were much the worse for wear by the time the final whistle blew...Hays, who played end for Marquette last year, was given a good "riding" by his Green Bay friends. Butch still is some footballer and but few gains were completed around his extremity of the line...Toody McLean got his first chance of the season to start a game and the former West Sider came through with flying colors. He gained many a yard for the Packers and, on the defense, played great football...Kinney's run for 65 yards after receiving in the kickoff in the second quarter was a thriller. He dashed straight through the Packer team and was headed for a score when Medley spilled him...Wagner's consistent football is making him popular with the Green Bay fans. "Buff" is as a good a ground gainer as there is in the Packer backfield. He made the first score against Milwaukee yesterday...Joe Hoeffel, as usual, handled the officiating in good shape. He didn't have the easiest job in the world because the invaders were beefing continually about downs and penalties...Chicocki, the Marquette varsity star who umpired, stated after the game that the Packers have one of the best professional teams he ever saw in action. He had much praise for Wilson's kicking.
PACKERS PRACTICE TONIGHT FOR GAME WITH BELOIT TEAM
NOVEMBER 9 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Packers will start practice tonight at the plant gridiron for the battle with the Fairbanks-Morse Fairies at Beloit Sunday afternoon. The signal workout will be preceded by a business meeting which is scheduled to start promptly at 7 o'clock. There is a good chance that the Packers' hospital list will be cleared up by Sunday. Dalton's ankle is still pretty sore but the doctors say he will be ready to go against Beloit. Lambeau came out of the Milwaukee fracas without bruising his ribs. There is some question about Klauss as his leg is pretty badly bruised up. However, in Gavin, the Packers have a first class man to plug the gap. Wilson, Petcka and Medley, the other injured warriors, will be O.K. for the invasion of "Fairyland". Arrangements have been completed for the Packers to attend the homecoming game at Madison between Illinois and Wisconsin. The squad, 28 strong, composed of players, officials and managers, will leave here early Saturday morning for the Capitol City. On the second jump of the trip, the Packers leave Madison at 5:30 p.m., arriving in Beloit about 7 o'clock. This will enable the team to get a good night's rest before the clash with Beloit.
