all the more with the reversal came unexpectedly. However, Green Bay is just as loyal as ever to its Packers and the players are more determined to start a new winning streak Sunday against St. Louis. The following week, November 11, Green Bay plays its return game with Racine and, unless we miss our guess, there is going to be a lot of fur flying.
DIRECT WIRE FROM ST. LOUIS TO BAY FOR PACKERS' GAME
OCTOBER 31 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Direct telephone service between Sportsman park, St. Louis, and Turner Hall, Green Bay, when the Packers play in
the Mound City against Ollie Kraehe's Browns. The loop
has been arranged for so as to give the fans in Green
Bay "play by play" service on the game. For a time, it
was feared that due to the great distance between St.
Louis and the Bay, it would be out of the question to set
up the telephone service. However, officials of the
Wisconsin Telephone company brought pressure to
bear and permission was secured to establish the direct
wire. The St. Louis end of the wire is to be cut in at the
press box at Sportsman park, where the game will be
played and the "sender" will have a clean and
unobstructed view of everything that is doing on the
gridiron. A second later the fans at Turner Hall will know
all about it.
PACKERS IN SHAPE FOR ST. LOUIS MIX SUNDAY
NOVEMBER 1 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The
Packer footballers are working out every day in
preparation for the pro league game at St. Louis on
Sunday. The morning drill schedule was switched
around and this afternoon the team "forward passed" it
with East High at Joannes park. The Bay eleven is
perfecting a new defense for the aerial attack and the
players feel confident that the Browns will have a
dickens of a time trying to complete forward in Sunday's
game at the Sportsman park. The players are in pretty
good shape for the St. Louis encounter and it is
expected that the strongest Packer team will start the
game against the Browns. The final drill will be staged
Friday morning. The plans for the trip are all set and the
squad leaves Friday night over the midnight
Northwestern train for Chicago. The Bay eleven will
reach St. Louis about 5:30 Saturday afternoon. During
their stay in the Mound City, the Packers will put up at
the Statler Hotel.
CASEY FIT AGAIN
NOVEMBER 1 (St. Louis) - Casey, the brilliant St. Louis
kicker, is again fit for the fray. This was the good new
announced by Manager Kraehe when speaking of his
team's chances in the Green Bay game here on
Sunday. Casey has been on the shelf with a couple of
cracked ribs and only able to play a few minutes at a
time. However, the doctors have reported him right and
he will start against the Badger State champions. Green
Bay has secured permission from the ball club officials
to string a special wire into the park for a "play by play"
service on the game. This is something new for St.
Louis and the football followers are much interested in
this novel stunt.
NOVEMBER 1 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Resplendent in their new blankets, the Packers should make quite a favorable impression when they prance out on the gridiron at Sportsman's park, St. Louis, next Sunday. One of the Mound City sportwriters has been billing the Packers as "The Pro team with the College spirit" and it is our hunch that he just about the nail on the head.
PACKERS' BLANKETS ARRIVE
NOVEMBER 1 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Packers' blankets arrived yesterday and some of them were placed on display in the window of the C.W. Hall Dry Goods company. The window presents an attractive appearance and it is well worth seeing. The blankets are royal blue, bound in gold and are lettered in gold in letters that all St. Louis can't help but see. They will be presented to the football team tomorrow. Money with which to buy the blankets were raised by the Auxiliary to the Catholic Woman's club through a tag day last Saturday.
GREEN BAY HAS GIANT TACKLE
NOVEMBER 1 (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) - The Green Bay Packers of Green Bay, Wis., one of the strongest of the NFL teams, will oppose Ollie Kraehe's St. Louis professional teams at Sportsman's Park Sunday afternoon. On comparative scores, the Green Bay team is either 18 points stronger than St. Louis, or exactly on a par with the local team, as one chooses to interpret the scores. Kraehe's team tied Green Bay, 0 to 0, in the first game of the season. Later, Green Bay defeated Milwaukee, 12 to 0. One week later Milwaukee defeated St. Louis, 6 to 0. One of the features that will be on exhibit Sunday is Cub Buck, 275-pound tackle who played several years ago for Wisconsin. He is said to be the biggest man in football today. Besides Buck the great Weller, star tackle of the St. Louis team, will appear small although he weighs 230 pounds. Green Bay has developed a very formidable forward passing game in which Lambeau at right half, tosses to the quarterback, Mathys, for consistent gains. The ends, Wheeler, Leaper and Hayes, are also adept at receiving passes. Lambeau is a former Notre Dame star. Jim Gould (Army) will referee the game. Coffeen of Beloit College will umpire.
PRO GRIDIRONER WEIGHS BUT 275 FOOTBALL POUNDS
NOVEMBER 2 (St. Louis Star and Times) - Outside of coaching four elevens and playing with a fourth, Cuib Buck, the star of the Green Bay Packers' team, which
opposes Ollie Kraehe's St. Louis professionals at
Sportsman's Park Sunday, has little or noting to do.
This extraordinary gridder weighs a mere 275 pounds, in
condition, and is said to be the biggest player now in
the game. Cub once toiled in the Wisconsin University
line and helped make the Badgers formidable in the Big
Ten Conference...HIS DAILY SCHEDULE: Arising in the
morning, the genial Cub clothes himself in football
cloths made by Omar the Tentmaker and practice with
the pro eleven, of which he is the shining light. After
lunch he goes to Appleton to coach the high school
eleven there and at 3:30 switches fields and directs the
practice of Lawrence College in the same city. Back to
his hometown of Kaukauna, Wis., he then dashes for a
session with the high school and, at night, takes over
the coaching of the American Legion squad. Of course,
he has to have some rest and this comes on Sunday
when, after actually idling away three or four hours, he
takes his place in the line of the Green Bay Packers
and beguiles an afternoon trying to push his opponent
off the football map. That would seem rather a large
program for any human, but the big chap really thrives
on this continuous action, and never in his football
career has he been taken out of a game because of
injury. Reports fail to state, however, whether any of his opponents retired for such reason. Buck is a star for the same reason that men of any profession are leaders in their chosen work - he loves his work, and his game and should some fanatic geek push through an anti-football amendment to our well-known constitution, the heavy Wisconsin lad would be utterly lost. Football fans of St. Louis will have a chance to gaze at this behemothic battler often Sunday as he does all the kicking for the visiting eleven.
