GREEN BAY FACES CARDINALS IN CHICAGO ON SUNDAY
OCTOBER 14 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Morrison hotel will be the headquarters of the Green Bay football contingent in Chicago over Sunday for the Cardinal game. The switch from the Brevoort was made at the eleventh hour, due to an overflow registration. It
is expected that at least three hundred Bay rooters will
be in the stands when the Bay eleven prances out on
the gridiron to give battle to Driscoll, Mohardt & Co. A
block of 300 seats will be saved for the Green Bay
delegation up until a half hour before the game, which is
scheduled to start at 2:30...INVASION UNDERWAY:
Some of the advance guard of Bay rooters started the
Milwaukee invasion Friday night. About two dozen auto
parties are making the trip. The bulk of the playing
squad pulled out of here at 3:15 over the Northwestern
in a special car. Several other members of the team will
be picked up en route. "We're going to be in there
fighting every minute," said Captain Lambeau. "The
addition of Niemann at center, Tubby Howard at end and
Gardella in the backfield gives us a much stronger
lineup and I feel confident that we will make things more
than interesting for the Cardinals. Every man on the
squad is in good shape and I think that we are going to
break into the win column. Anyway we will be in there
fighting every minute."...THE PROBABLE LINEUP: The
probable lineup of the Green Bay squad in Sunday's
game will be as follows: Ends, Wheeler, Howard, Smith;
Tackles, Buck, Murray, Nadolny; Guards, Owens,
Gardner, Davis; Center, Niemann, Secord; Backs,
Lambeau, Glick, Cronin, Regnier, Mills and Gardella.
EXPECT BIG CROWD
OCTOBER 14 (Chicago) - The Green Bay eleven, one of
the most talked of pro football squads in the country, will
give battle Sunday afternoon to the Chicago Cardinals.
Seldom has a professional gridiron argument kicked up
so much interest in the Windy City. Unless all signs
fail, the game will draw at least 5,000 persons. The "Fighting Badgers" as they are known here for their 1921 exhibitions in Chicago, have one of the most feared teams in the country. The average weight of the squad is close to 200 pounds and despite the poundage the Wisconsin eleven has speed to burn. They specialize on the forward pass and their aerial attack is second to none. The Cardinals have been working their heads off to get in shape for the game and with Paddy Driscoll and Johnny Mohardt leading the attack the followers of Chris O'Brien's team are looking forward to a win. In order to better their chances for a victory, the Cardinal management has added several new faces to the scrimmage line. The game will be called at 2:30. Regulation periods of 15 minutes will be played. Percy Moore, Harvard, will referee while Holloway, Chicago, is the umpire.
OCTOBER 14 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Football
fans from this part of the state will turn their attention on
Chicago tomorrow where Green Bay will have it out with
Chris O'Brien's Cardinals. The trio of upsets, one right
after another, handed Lambeau's aggregation hasn't set
very well with the followers of the Bay eleven and in
many instances the anvil chorus is bursting forth loudly.
A victory will shut this up in a jiffy and the players, realizing the condition of things at home, can be counted on to battle doubly hard to break into the win column. There are hundreds of loyal fans around these parts who are sticking with the team through defeat but as we have said before nothing succeeds like success and everybody loves a winner.
SCENE OF FRACAS STILL HANGING FIRE
OCTOBER 14 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The scene of the Cardinal-Bay fracas is still undecided. If the Cubs defeat the White Sox today and cop the Chicago city ball series, the gridiron fray will be staged at the White Sox ball park. However, if the Sox are victorious in today's contest, the decisive game will be played at the American league park and the Cardinal-Green Bay football fray will be on tap at Normal, Sixty-first St. and Racine avenue. This park is the old stamping grounds of the Cardinals and it was on this gridiron that Green Bay played the Cardinals to a 3 to 3 tie game last season.
CARDINAL SPEED TO MEET PACKER BEEF TOMORROW
OCTOBER 14 (Chicago Tribune) - Brawn will be opposed to speed and cunning tomorrow afternoon, when the Green Bay Packers battle the Chicago Cardinals. The combat place is tentative. White Sox park is the battle scene, in the event the city baseball title is settled today, and Normal park at Sixty-first street and Racine avenue, if the baseball series is still on. Cub Buck, captain and manager of the visitors, reports he has an aggregation averaging close to 200 pounds. Buck a few years ago was All-American tackle at Wisconsin. Driscoll of Northwestern fame and Mohardt, who made the Army and other opponents remember Notre Dame, will be the mainstays on offense for the Cards.
CUB BUCK, HEAVY GREEN BAY PACKERS BUCK CARDS TODAY
OCTOBER 15 (Chicago Tribune) - Green Bay Packers, who play the Chicago Cardinals, southside members of the American Professional Football leagues this afternoon, will start the battle at Normal park with more than twenty pound handicap per man, according to weights given off by the managers of the two teams. But the local players hope to make up for the difference in poundage by superiority in the open game. The Packers this fall are a heavier combination than last season, with several men scaling more than 200 pounds. Cub Buck, captain, weighs 230. Football fans of the Big Ten circuit a few years ago remember Buck as the famous tackle on the University of Wisconsin team. Chris O'Brien, manager of the Cards, however, has a wonderful trio of backfield men in Mohardt, Driscoll and McMahon, all adepts at the forward passing and kicking game, and shifty runners. The game will be called at 2:30 o'clock.
