FEBRUARY 11 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Although the football season is a long way
off, there is quite a bit of speculation about what is going to be doing here on the
professional gridiron next fall. It is a good bet that the Packers won't be in action. The
same old gang may be there but they will probably be playing under another name.
Dame Rumor has it that one of the big industrial concerns is dickering for the team
and that they may put "Cub" Buck, All American star, in charge of the pigskin chasers.
PACKER FOOTBALL SQUAD WILL START PRACTICE MONDAY NIGHT ON OLD
AUGUST 6 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Packers will start football practice
Monday night at 6:45. Arrangements have been completed to use the vacant lot,
Cherry and Jefferson streets, across from the city hall as a practice gridiron and a
lighting system will be installed so that the squad will be able to work late in the
evening. Work will be started early next week leveling the ground so that it will be in good
shape for the practice tilts. A tackling dummy outfit will be erected on one corner of the lot.
Captain Lambeau is desirous of having all candidates report promptly so that the practice can get underway without any delay. The Packers are getting an earlier start than usual this year but Lambeau wants his team in shape for games in September.
AUGUST 8 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The thud of the pigskin will be heard on the old courthouse lot corner of Jefferson and Cherry streets tonight at 6:45 when candidates for the Packers football squad engage in the their first practice workout of the season. Captain Lambeau was all of last year's regulars out tonight as well as any others who want to try out for the team.
AUGUST 8 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Packers football squad starts its practice workouts tonight. The players will have about five weeks of steady grill before the opening game and when the whistle blows for the initial fray they should be in midseason form. Unless we miss our guess Green Bay is going to a mighty place this year in the professional football world.
CUB BUCK MAY BE SEEN IN PACKERS LINEUP THIS FALL
AUGUST 10 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Packers will stage their second workout of the season on the old courthouse grounds tonight and the practice will be followed by a meeting of the candidates in Mayor Wiesner's office at City Hall. The drill is to start at 6:45 and Captain Lambeau will direct the training stunts. It is expected that at least thirty candidates will report. There is a possibility that "Cub" Buck, former Wisconsin All American star, and a member of Jim Thorpe's Canton Bulldog team for the past two seasons will be seen in a Packer uniform this fall. Buck is in charge of Boy Scout activities at Appleton and the Packers' management is in hopes of signing him up for the season. Negotiations to this effect are now underway. Buck played one game here last fall with the Packers.
JOE HOEFFEL WILL HELP TAKE CHARGE OF PACKERS SQUAD
AUGUST 11 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Joe Hoeffel, former Wisconsin captain, will assist Captain Lambeau in coaching the Packers. Beginning next week, Hoeffel will work out regularly with the team and he is expected to render valuable assistance in building up a championship machine. The Packers went through another snappy workout on the old courthouse grounds and about 400 spectators were on hand to see the squad go through the limbering up stunts. Captain Lambeau had about twenty men on the job and he made numerous changes in the lineup during the signal practice. Among the players who reported for a workout last night were: Klaus, Martin Zoll, Carl Zoll, MacMillan, Baetz, Wilson, Kliebhahn, Powers, Abrams, Martell, Gavin, Bernhardt, Lande, McLean, Rosenow, Ladrow, Schmael, Bero, Martin and Captain Lambeau....SCHMAEL BACK IN FOLD: Nearly all of these men were members of the team last year. Art Schmael is back in the fold. He was captain of the city team in 1918, the year he coached East High. Bernhardt played with the Beloit Fairies in 1919. MacMillan is a former University of Washington star, while Kliebhahn played a back for the Milwaukee All Stars against the Packers last fall. "Cowboy" Wheeler will be out Friday night. Wagner is expected here from Marinette within ten days and he may bring "Eckey" Erdlitz, crack quarterback, with him. Wes and Guy Leaper will soon be out with the squad. There is also the possibility that Jen Gallagher, crack halfback in 1919, may be back in action...MAY GET DAVEY: An attempt is being made to get Allan Davey, Wisconsin star of '20, here for the football season, and Brumm, a big Badger lineman, is also being considered. As yet no reply has been received from Cub Buck but the management is hopeful that the All-American star can be induced to sign up with the Packers.
MANY CANDIDATES WILL WORK OUT AT PACKERS PRACTICE
AUGUST 12 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Packers
football squad will be up and at it tonight on the old court
house grounds in their third practice of the season. The
workout will start promptly at 6:30 and continue until
darkness puts a halt to the pigskin chasing stunts. A
number of new candidates are expected to report tonight.
It is hoped to have two complete teams running through
signals. Word has been received from Buff Wagner and the
star halfback will be here next week for the football season.
Captain Lambeau plans to speed up the drills next week
and it is hoped to have the tackling dummy in shape for use
by the players. The practice gridiron has been smoothed
over and is now in good condition for the workouts.
PACKERS NEEDING MORE CANDIDATE FOR LINE JOBS
AUGUST 13 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - A squad of twenty
two men worked out at the Packers football practice on the old courthouse grounds Friday evening. Captain Lambeau ran the men through a long single drill and it looks as if a corking good football machine is in the making. There appears to be a raft of good candidates for the backfield and ends so far the aspirants for line jobs have been slow in reporting. Milt Wilson, Sammy Powers, the two Zolls, McMillan, Baetz and Klaus at the present time form the nucleus of the line. Among those seeking end jobs are: Wheeler, Gavin, Martell, Abrams, Bernhardt. Backfield materials is plentiful with Captain Lambeau, Schmael, Ladrow, McLean, Rosenow, Dwyer, Bero, Martin and Eckhardt on the job. Guy and Wes Leaper, Buff Wagner and Erdlitz are expected out during the coming week. As yet the management is unable to make a definite announcement in regards to Cub Buck, Davey and Brumm, the trio of former Wisconsin stars who have been tendered offers to play with the Packers. Practice will be resumed Monday night at 6:30. Efforts are now being made to secure training quarters with a shower bath and as soon as this is arranged for, uniforms will be given out and scrimmage work started.
