Green Bay Packers (4-1-2) 3, Chicago Cardinals (5-2) 0
Sunday October 31st 1926 (at Chicago)
GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(CHICAGO) - Revenge is sweet. And the Green Bay Packers got it aplenty here Sunday afternoon when they stepped on the Chicago Cardinals toes to the tune of 3 to 0 in a National league game, before a crowd of less than 2,500, and of which there were at least 300
followers of the Badger state champions. Once upon a
time, Fielding Yost, Michigan coach, said: "A fighting
team can't be beat" and Yost's expression was very
much in evidence here on Sunday. The Packers were a
fighting team. They battled the chesty Cardinals every
inch of the way and even the most rabid Chicago fan
had to admit that Chris O'Brien's hirelings bowed to a
better football machine.
TUNED UP FOR FRAY
The Green Bayians certainly were tuned up for the fray.
If ever a team looked right, the Packers did on Sunday,
Chicago newspapermen as a rule don't get over excited
about pro football but Sunday a couple of scribes who
had been assigned to cover the game came over to the
Packer bench in the closing minutes and congratulated
Captain Lambeau. "We've got some of your publicity
which carried the phrase - the pro team with the college
spirit," remarked a Daily News man. "I didn't think it
was possible. But I saw some football out there this
afternoon that I won't forget for a long while. It was the
best exhibition of gridironing I have seen this season
and I have been at a college game every Saturday since
early in September. Lewellen, the Packer halfback, is
one of the greatest kickers I have ever laid eyes on,
while that 'man-mountain Earpe', who plays center 
certainly is a tower of strength in the line."
GOAL LINE STAND
The Tribune writer agreed with everything the News
scribe said and added, "The thing that looked to me as
the most brilliant was the Packers' goal line stand right
at the end of the first half. When the Cards had the ball
on the 5-yard stripe, I figured it was over all but the
shouting. However, I was fooled. Here's where your
team showed its heart, and, after they had turned back
the Cards, I was willing to bet dollars to doughnuts on a
Green Bay victory. And don't forget, I am going to see
that Packer-Bear game here on November 21." Football
​fans who have followed the Packers since 1918 have
seen a lot of thrilling moments but probably there was
never a happening so productive to heart disease as the
Packers' stonewall defense in the closing minutes of
the second quarter. After Dunn had missed a placekick
from the 45-yard mark, the Packers scrimmaged on
their twenty. Two plays netted little yardage and Lewellen punted 55 yards to Dunn, who was chased out of bounds on the Cardinals' 40-yard stripe.
LAUNCHED BEST DRIVE
Here the Chicagoans launched their best drive of the day. After O'Donnell had thrown McDonald for a loss, Dunn passed 30 yards to McDonald and he was dumped on the Bays' fifteen. Lamb couldn't gain. As a matter of fact he was "meek as a Lamb" all afternoon. A penalty for offside put oval only ten yards from a touchdown. Koehler was stopped dead, but a short pass, Lamb to Dunn, made it first down on the Packers' five, goal to go.
"HOLD 'EM PACKERS"
"Hold 'em Packers" shrieked the Green Bay contingent. And "hold 'em" they did. Koehler got three yards. McDonald got two and Lamb was stopped dead. McDonald attempted to slip around end but he was dumped in his tracks and the Packers recovered the ball. A roar of applause swept the field as the crowd gave the Bays a big hand for their brilliant defense. Several of the Green Bay rooters tried to do a snake dance high up in the grandstand and they tumbled down two or three rows in excitement. But who cared, joy ruled supreme in the Bay section.
KICKS OUT OF DANGER
With but a minute to go, the Bays played carefully. Three line plays netted a few yards and then Lewellen kicked out of bounds on the Cardinals' 35 yard line and the gun boomed for half time. During the closing periods, the Cards were often dangerous, but never did they get within the 20-yard stripe of the Big Bay Blues. That goal line defense seemed to take a lot of steam out of the Chicagoans' machine. The third quarter was sort of a see saw affair with numerous exchanges of kicks. Possibly the Cards had a bit the best of yardage gained in this period but the Bays would always rise to the occasion and hold tight, forcing a punt. During the final minutes of this frame, the Cards got going fairly well and, when time was called, the oval rested on the Bays' 21-yard mark.
BLUE TIDE SURGES FORWARD
But that was all. On the first play of the fourth quarter, "All-American" Erickson fumbled, and Lewellen recovered for the Bays and the Cardinals' hopes were doomed. The Blue tide surged forward and down the field they went as if a touchdown were in the making. However, the Bays were playing safe football and not taking any chances on a pass being intercepted. The Cardinals never gave up the battle but they were waging a losing fight and whenever they had the ball, Red Dunn began throwing "prayer" passes all over the lot with reckless abandon. However, the Bays were on their toes every minute and they were either knocking down the tosses or intercepting them as fast as Dunn would let loose. About midway in the period, the Bays smashed their way forward to the Cardinals' 9-yard line. One line plunge netted little and Purdy attempted to cross the Cards. He opened the string on the much discussed bag of tricks and passed to Lewellen from a regular formation. The Cards knocked down the toss in the end zone.
PASS IS INTERCEPTED
With but two minutes to go, Dunn passed to Lamb for a first down on the Cards' forty. Another toss by Dunn was intercepted by Purdy, who grabbed the ball out of the hands of two waiting Cards and scampered to the enemies' 35-yard stripe. Three plays were run off and the gun boomed. It was all over but the shouting and there was plenty of that. Joy ruled supreme in the Packer roost and the first victory ever scored by a Green Bay team in Chicago was placed in the record books. The only score of the game came in the first quarter and Pid Purdy's educated toe was responsible for it. The fighting Bays started their battling from the first whistle and they soon had the Cardinals taking plenty of abuse. Red Dunn's kicks weren't going so good and on every exchange Lewellen was piling up plenty of yardage. Early in the quarter, the Packers were well down in enemy territory and Purdy tried to kick from the 36-yard mark. It went astray but a few minutes later, the Packers launched another offense and the Cards were pushed back goalward.
PURDY KICKS FIELD GOAL
A pass, Purdy to O'Donnell, was good for 20 yards and the ball was on the Cardinals' thirty. Lewellen got eight yards, and Harris added another. Lidberg was held tight. So once again, E. Pid called "quarterback back, now hold that line tight." Earpe's pass was made to order and that Packer midget, standing 33 yards from the goal, booted the ball between the uprights for the only score of the game.
CHI CARDS -  0  0  0  0 -  0
GREEN BAY -  3  0  0  0 -  3
1st - GB - Purdy, 33-yard field goal GREEN BAY 3-0
PACKERS EXPECTING BATTLE AT MILWAUKEE ON SUNDAY
NOVEMBER 3 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - "Beat Milwaukee first, then worry about the other games." That's the war cry of the Packer squad this week as they make ready for the annual Cream City invasion on Sunday. Old-Man Overconfidence has wrecked a lot of
football teams but the Packers aren't figuring that the
Badger fray already is tucked away in the win column.
Johnny Bryan's aggregation has been playing bang up'
football all season but the jinx has camped on tight and
they have lost games by few point margins...SPEEDS
UP CLUB: The Badgers would consider their season a
success if they knocked off the Packers this Sunday.
Bryan is speeding up his players by every trick in the
game known to a veteran footballer and there is no
doubt but that the Milwaukee team will be there with
bells on when the whistle blows for the championship
game at Athletic park. The Milwaukee tilt means a lot
to Green Bay. A victory over the Badgers cinches the
Wisconsin pro title for another year and a win will very
likely break the tie for fourth place in the NFL standings
as Duluth plays in Detroit and the Eskimos are very
likely to be frozen out as Conzelman's Panthers are
stepping fast these days. The Packers are still in the
running for the national championship and victories in
the next two games should put them up not far from the
flying Chicago Bears, who haven't been beaten as yet.
Green Bay is the only team that has held the Windy
City Bruins to a tie game. Writing about the National
pro football league race, a Chicago Tribune scribe
penned the following article:...BEARS HOLD LEAD: 
After six weeks of play among the leaders of the race
for honors in the National pro grid league, the Chicago
Bears have broken through the multiple ownership of
first place and and assumed undisputed possession of
the top rung of the ladder. The Bears were aided last
Saturday when Providence handed Philadelphia its first
defeat, but previously the Bears had disposed of three
leading teams in succession, the New York Giants,
Chicago Cardinals and Duluth Eskimos. The race is far
from over, for the Bears have two more games with the
Cardinals besides contests with Philadelphia, New York
and Green Bay. Any of these teams may gain the
leadership at any time. Driscoll has been a big factor in
the Bears' string of victories, but the all around play of
the north side team has featured its bid for the title. Bill
Senn, playing his first season of pro ball, also has
demonstrated his ability in every game in which he has
appeared...FACE TWO HARD GAMES: The Cardinals
lose a hard game Sunday to Green Bay, and go east for
two games this weekend with Frankford and New York
knowing that they must win both or be eliminated from
the first division. With the exception of Providence,
Pottsville and Los Angeles, none of the other clubs have
shown great power, Louisville and Hammond failing to
win any games to date. Milwaukee, although far down
in the standings, has lost more close decisions than
any one team is entitled to lose. They were defeated
Sunday by Duluth, 7 to 6, and the week before were
downed by the Cards, 3 to 2. They held the Bears to a
10 to 7 score in the first game of the year.
MILWAUKEE EXPECTS PACKERS TO DRAW LARGE
CROWD
NOVEMBER 4 (Milwaukee) - About once every season
Milwaukee gets enthused over a  pro football game and
it is always when the Green Bay Packers play here. So
naturally, there is a lot of "football talk" in the air about
what is going to happen at Athletic park on Sunday,
when the Big Bay Blues from "up north" rub elbows with
Johnny Bryan's Badgers, in a state championship game.
This is going to be the biggest football weekend of the
season in Milwaukee. Saturday, Marquette stages its
homecoming game with the Kansas Aggies, one of the
strongest teams in the Missouri Valley conference.
Hundreds of Hilltop grads from all over the country are
coming back for the annual reunion, and many of them
will stay over to see the professional teams do their
stuff on Sunday...PLAYING WITH BADGERS: Several
Marquette products are performing with the Badgers
and the graduates will jump at the chance to see them
in action again on the chalk marked field. Dilweg, Lane
and Heimsch are listed among the all-time gridiron
heroes at Marquette. Green Bay has never tasted a
defeat on a Milwaukee gridiron. Back in 1921, the 
Packers played a tie game here with Racine, 3 to 3. In
1922, the Bays fought to a 0 to 0 tie with Milwaukee at
Athletic park and later in the season bumped Racine
off here, 14 to 0, in a state championship encounter...
BEAT MILWAUKEE, 10 TO 7: In 1923, the Packers
walloped Milwaukee, 10 to 7, in a thrilling combat.
Captain Lambeau won the game in the fourth quarter
when he grabbed a pass from Mathys and ran through
Conzelman for a touchdown. In 1924, the Packers
twisted the Badgers' tail, 17 to 10, while last year 
McGurk's misfits took the count, 7 to 0. However, this
year Johnny Bryan says it is going to be a different
story. His team took a 7 to 0 licking at the Bay a few
weeks back but the Badgers claim a lucky break paved
the way for their downfall and that they are going to get
even this time out. Milwaukee football fans know that
Green Bay always gives them their money's worth and
the biggest pro crowd of the season is forecast. Otto
Borchert, who has the knack of sensing big crowds, has
ordered four more ticket men on the job Sunday. This is
a sure sign of good business according to those who
are close to the owner of the Brewers.
CHICAGO INTEREST TAKE RACINE'S PRO
FOOTBALL FRANCHISE
NOVEMBER 4 (Racine) - The franchise of the Racine
professional football club has been sold to Chicago 
interests, according to an announcement made by
Babe Reutz, manager of the local club. There are three 
games remaining on the Racine schedule. A game with
Green Bay is booked here November 14. The following
Sunday, Racine is supposed to play in Milwaukee and
November 28, Dayton is booked. It is considered 
probable that the new owners will take a chance and
play the Packers here on November 14 as the Badger
state champions always draw well in this city...MAY GO
TO INDIANAPOLIS: Where the new owners will take the
club is still a mystery, although it is rumored that the
franchise is in the National league. The club will have to
complete its schedule this year or pay a large forfeit to
the league, so it is thought that the new owners will
carry through either in Racine or some midwest city.
The purchasers did not make their identity known, but
carried on negotiations through an agent. They will be in
Racine late this afternoon, however, and are expected to
reveal their plans at that time. Mr. Reutz did not make the consideration known, but declared that the Chicago men had met his terms...LOSING PROPOSITION: Professional football has been a losing proposition in this city since the start. Some 2,600 people turned out to see Ernie Nevers and his Duluth Eskimos, the feature attraction of the year, despite a big ticket campaign. The average attendance at other games has been below 2,000 and the expenses of the team are much greater than the income. The local franchise was owned by the American Business club of this city.
BADGERS AND PACKERS TANGLE IN MILWAUKEE SUNDAY
NOVEMBER 6 (Milwaukee) - Pro football comes into its own here Sunday when the Green Bay Packers, champions of Wisconsin since 1918, tackle Johnny Bryan's Badgers in a NFL game at Athletic park, which
is located at Eighth and Chambers. The game starts at 2:15. Bryan, the Milwaukee pro football mogul, is making a game fight to place the postgraduate game 
back on its feet here but all season the public has sort
of been indifferent to his efforts...GREEN BAY MEANS
FOOTBALL: However, down along Grand Avenue, the
natives know that when Green Bay and its Packers
arrive, they are certain to see a football game that will
give them a thrill. All week, the game has been "talked
up" in sport circles and, with fair weather, it is safe to
say that the biggest crowd of the season will be on 
hand. Many stayovers from the Marquette homecoming
will be among those present. Three former Hilltop stars,
Dilweg, Heimsch and Lane are playing with the Badgers
and the graduates are eager to see their old idols do
their stuff again on the chalk marked field. As usual,
Green Bay will be represented by an army of fans. The
Bay footballers have been coming here for a number of
seasons and each time they brought along a larger
crowd. A section of the grandstand has been reserved
for the football followers from "up north"...BADGERS
ARE RIGHT: According to Manager Bryan, his team is
"in the pink". Every player is fit for the fray and he has
promised his Milwaukee followers that the chesty
Packers will head homeward a whole lot wiser in the
gentle art of chasing a cowhide. However, the majority
of the fans here are awaiting to be shown. Last Sunday,
the Packers invaded Chicago and beat the Cardinals in
their own backyard. Any team that can do this carries a
lot of respect from the gridiron dopesters that wend their
way each Sunday to Otto Borchert's playground.
TEAM IN FAIR SHAPE
NOVEMBER 6 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Big
Bay Blues started their invasion of Milwaukee this
afternoon hopeful of scoring a victory in Sunday's 
skirmish against the Badgers but nevertheless, not a bit
overconfident, as every member of the squad has a lot
of respect for Johnny Bryan's aggregation of gridders.
The Packers are in pretty good shape. With the exception of Rosatti and Harris, the state champions are in the pink. It will be out of the question to use Rosatti but the injured "paw" of Harris could stand a little scrimmaging if the occasion demanded it. The Bays' starting lineup is still a bit undecided although it is probable that, aside from the hospital list members, all the players will be shot into action against Milwaukee. Hundreds of Green Bay fans will be in the stands at Athletic park on Sunday as the local Packer followers never pass up a chance to see the team go in the Cream City. Many are making the trip by train while others are going to motor down to Brewery-town. During the stay in Milwaukee, Green Bay headquarters will be at the Wisconsin hotel. A special Green Bay section has been set aside for the Packer rooters at Athletic park.
RACINE TORNADOES WILL COMPLETE '26 PRO LEAGUE SEASON
NOVEMBER 6 (Racine) - Light was shed on the rather tangled pro football situation in Racine after a conference here Friday with parties who purchased the franchise owned by the Racine Fans' Athletic association. Out of the maze of uncertainty which shrouded the fate of the Tornadoes came the announcement that the team would play out the remainder of its scheduled contests, this move being necessary to remain in the good graces of the league and retain the franchise. Thus the local pros are slated to tangle with Green Bay here November 14, with the Badgers at Milwaukee November 21 and with Dayton here November 28. Identity of the Chicago men who purchased the Racine National league berth remains something of a mystery - a matter of policy, evidently. But one of the prime movers is understood to be a man well known in league circles who managed another club a year or so ago. He probably will be the manager...INCORPORATE NEW CLUB: Fred Ahlgrimm, Racine lawyer, has been retained to draw up articles of incorporation for the new organization and the Racine Fans' Athletic association will definitely go out of existence after making up any deficit which may exist. The new club is to be known as the Racine Tornadoes' Athletic association. Because it was too late in the season to establish the team here, and faced with the necessity of playing out the schedule, the new outfit decided to play the remaining three contests as a Racine team. And George (Babe) Reutz, president of the Racine Fans' Athletic association, states the club may decide to remain here providing the attendance is sufficiently large. However, unless more interest is shown than in previous games, the team will no doubt be moved to another city for the 1927 campaign. Indianapolis has been prominently mentioned in this connection...TO BOLSTER TEAM: The Tornadoes will be strengthened for the battles with Green Bay, Milwaukee and Dayton, the new management announces. Four or five of the present players will be retained, according to the report, and the remainder of the squad made up of prominent performers imported by the organization which has purchased the franchise. Bo McMillan, former Centre college headliner, is said to be under contract to the new manager, but there has been no definite promise he will play here. Selection of the Racine players who will remain from the old team has not yet been made.
1300 SEE PACKER-CARD GAME AT COLUMBUS CLUB
NOVEMBER 1 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Between
1,200 and 1,300 attended the Packer-Cardinal football
game play by play at the Columbus club Sunday
afternoon. Every detail of the game was shown on the
gridgraph and the fans were given many thrills. The
Packer-Milwaukee game next Sunday will not be
reproduced at the C.C.C. as the Chicago Symphony 
Band is scheduled to give a concert in the auditorium
Sunday afternoon and evening. The place for the play-
by-play will be announced later.
MILWAUKEE BADGERS "KEYING UP" FOR PACKER
FRACAS
NOVEMBER 2 (Milwaukee) - Whether Green Bay's
proud boast, "Badger State Champions since 1918",
will live through another season will depend largely upon
whether Old Lady Luck hovers over the Badgers' goal
Sunday or whether she flirts with the invaders from 
Brown County's capital. It is true that Bryan's men were
defeated in the forepart of the season by the sky-colored airmen from the Bay city, 7 to 0, but the game was close as professional games go, and there is nothing in the dope to prevent the Badgers from taking the Bays into camp when they meet up in the Cream City at Athletic park....FRESH FROM CARD WIN: The Packers, fresh from defeating their greatest enemy, the Chicago Cardinals, will in all probability have several men on the hospital list with incipient cases of egotism, a disease more dreaded than sore feet by team managers. On the other hand, the Badgers, duly chastened by the exhibition of Ernie Nevers on their home lot last Sunday, have settled down to hard work in preparation for the coming game. While they would willingly accept a little lift from Lady Luck, they are not in the least superstitious and will depend more upon spirit than upon spirits. A victory over Green Bay will give the Badgers a tie with the Packers for state honors and Red Bryan's players are out to bring their standing up to "just as good as anyone in the state."
BACK AT WORK
NOVEMBER 2 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Big Bay Blues resumed their practice sessions at Joannes park this morning. With the exception of Rosatti, the club came out of the grueling Cardinal game in pretty good condition. Rosatti has a sprained ankle but the injured member is responding to treatment nicely and he won't be out of the lineup long. The Packers aren't figuring any set up in Milwaukee on Sunday. Instead the gridders figure that they will have to play their heads off against Red Bryan's team. When it comes to defensive football, the Badgers equal any team in the pro wheel and reports from Milwaukee carry the news that the Milwaukee outfit is developing a first class attack. The win against the Cardinals has sent Packer football stock soaring sky high around here and it is expected that hundreds of fans will make the trip to Milwaukee this Sunday.
MANY PACKER FOLLOWERS GOING TO MILWAUKEE SUNDAY
NOVEMBER 5 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Green Bay will be represented by a delegation nearly a thousand strong at Athletic park in Milwaukee Sunday when the Packers have it out with the Badgers in a state championship fracas. The teams will step into action about 2:15. From the talk around town it would seem as if every football fans that could beg, borrow or steal a ride to the Cream City on Sunday was making arrangements to follow the Big Bay Blues and cheer them on to victory against Johnny Bryan's gridders...ALWAYS HIGH SPOT: This Milwaukee pilgrimage is always a high spot in every football season at Green Bay. Every year since 1921, the Packer followers have been making the trip to Brewery-town and a good time was always had by all. Former Green Bayians, who now live in Milwaukee, always make it a point to get out to the game and between halves many a reunion is staged. A section of the grandstand has been put aside for the Green Bay delegation and the Packer followers will have no trouble bunching together at Athletic park. The Packer section will be pretty close to the 50-yard line. During their sojourn in Milwaukee, Green Bay headquarters will be at the Wisconsin hotel. The Bay gridders will reach Milwaukee early Saturday evening in plenty of time to get a good night's sleep before the big game...LOWRIE TO REFEREE: George Lowrie, of Chicago, will referee Sunday's game. His appointment was announced by President Joe Carr of the NFL. Browne and Johnson, two other Chicagoans, have been named to serve as umpire and head linesman, respectively. The Packer squad has been working out every fay this week and there will be a snappy drill Saturday morning before the team gets underway to Milwaukee. Aside from Rosatti, tackle, and Jack Harris, the gridders are in the pink. Rosatti is a hospital patient while Harris has an injured hand. However, in a pinch of necessity, Fighting Jack could step into action and crash through for a few yards. The Bays know they have got a fight on their hands and they will be ready to go. The Badgers have one of the best defensive clubs in the pro wheel and the Green Bay eleven will have to show all it's got if it expects to put across another victory.
GRIDGRAPH TO FLASH IN TURNER HALL FOR BAY-MILWAUKEE TILT
NOVEMBER 5 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Green Bay
football fans will be reminded of old times Sunday 
afternoon when they climb the stairs to the Turner Hall
for the gridgraph presentation of the Packer-Milwaukee
Badger gridiron competition. Folks used to get a real
thrill out of the presentation of the pigskin news at the
old Turner hall years back. Before even the days of the
Gridgraph, folks used to pay admission to the hall to
hear the play by play report of the game read off by a 
lusty lunged individual seated on the platform. Cheers
would follow each announcement of Cub Buck's wiping
off the ball for a kick, and groans would follow the
announcement that the team had been penalized. As the fans became more rabid, it became dangerous to sit out and read off reports for should they not be entirely to the liking of the crowd, the attitude of the reader was open to criticism. This brought about the need for the barricade in front of the reader and some means of signaling the plays. After all it was easier to see than to hear in the hall and so the popularity of the Gridgraph was assured from the start. The business grew until the hall was too small to accommodate the crowds that wanted to keep tab on the team, and later games were presented in the Columbus Club auditorium. This week however the Chicago Symphony Orchestra is playing a concert in the auditorium and so the Gridgraph has again been set up in the Turner hall.
BAYS COULD BEAT 'EM
NOVEMBER 5 (Racine) - Tex Reynolds, Racine columnist, thinks the Packers could beat any Western Conference team by a city block. He was among those present at the Racine funeral in Green Bay a few weeks ago and last Saturday he saw the "first down-less" game that Wisconsin put up against the Gophers. Here is what he says: "Green Bay's pro team could have played Minnesota and Wisconsin with a five-minute rest between games and handed them both a drubbing. That remark was made by a Racine fan while walking out of Camp Randall stadium Saturday and there was more than a grain of truth in his statement. After having seen both the Packers and the above mentioned college crews in action, the writer couldn't honestly take anything but the pro side of the controversy. The question of which brand of football is superior from the standpoint of actual playing ability is an old one that has often been argued before. In previous years, when pro outfits were just a collection of individual stars who seldom if ever practiced, most of them would have had little chance against the best college teams of the country. But the pro game has progressed to such an extent that the whole aspect of the thing is changed. The average professional game is now in nearly as good condition as the average collegian, and the science of team play on good pro teams has developed to the point where it can hardly be duplicated by elevens composed of college performers who lack the experience the "money player" has gained. Green Bay has one of the strongest teams in the National pro circuit, and, if there was any chance (and there isn't) of getting them into a game with the best team in the Big Ten conference, the writer is one of those who could mortgage the old homestead to back the Packers to win."
PYLE'S GRID TREE IS "LEAVING" FAST
NOVEMBER 5 (New York) - Harold Hansen, manager of the Newark professional football team, has withdrawn his team from the American league because of financial difficulties. Three rainy weekends in succession have piled up losses, he says. Cleveland withdrew from the C.C. Pyle circuit earlier this week. Humbert Fugazy announces that his Brooklyn Horsemen in the same league will share in the club's profits from now on, although the same have been zero to date.
IN TROUBLE BEFORE
NOVEMBER 5 (Ironwood, MI) - Harold Hansen has had previous financial difficulties. Leaving Ironwood several years ago to become an assistant coach at Georgia Tech, Hansen went into bankruptcy with the result that an indebtedness he left here was wiped out...PLAYED WITH PACKERS: Hansen was a member of the Packers during the tail end of the 1923 season. He saw service in only one game, that being against 
Hammond, at Bellevue Park. Hansen came here from Ironwood after the Upper Michigan team had blown up.

Pete Calas and Jim Thorpe, famous redskin gridders, have been playing for years and Robb, quarterback, is also a veteran...There is a new addition to the Yellowjacket squad. It is an Oklahoma burro, which was a feature of the American Legion convention in Philadelphia. The animal was presented to Chamberlain for good luck as a mascot...Carney, who was a star at the Naval academy, continues to do everything asked of him at a guard position for the New York Giants. Carney is a big, rangy lineman who uses his hands as well as any gridder in the country...Doc Keough, former frosh football coach at Pennsylvania, is bumping into a lot of tough breaks in whipping together a winner at Hartford. The jinx has been camping tight on the Blues' trail ever since the season opened...The Philadelphia Yellowjackets' clean record fell by the wayside on Saturday when Providence "steamrolled" 'em for a 7 to 6 victory. However, Chamberlain's gridders came back on Sunday when they evened the count, 6 to 3...The Akron Indians didn't give the Bears much trouble.

Sonnenberg, the Panthers' kicking specialist, came through with two field goals for the only scores of the fray...The Racine-Louisville game was called off due to the fact that the Horlickville club is undergoing a "financial reorganization". Babe Reutz and his associates in Racine are doing everything possible to hold the franchise...Milwaukee, the hard luck club of Joe Carr's pro grid wheel, dropped another game by a one-point margin. This time out it was Duluth that flopped the Badgers, 7 to 6. As usual, Nevers carried the load for the Eskimos...The Kansas City Cowboys came back to life and made things "bluer" for Hartford by chalking up a 7 to 2 win. The Andrews-men from the Kaw state seem to have found themselves and they are playing good ball, win or lose...Pottsville continued on victory row by smacking Buffalo for a 15 to 0 loss. The Miners were crashing just as hard as ever and the man with the ball was given plenty of help. It is hard to beat that brand of football...The Chicago Cardinals suffered their second loss of the season when the Green Bay Packers invaded Chris O'Brien's own backyard and administered a 3 to 0 lacing. Purdy's field goal in the opening quarter won for the Bays...Bissell, former Fordham star, who is playing a wing for Akron, was nearly in himself against the Bears. Several times he followed around on sweeping runs and caught the man tugging the cowhide from behind...Senn, the Bears' youngster from Knox, is basking in the spotlight with due regularity. Long runs are his specialty. He galloped 60 yards in the Duluth game and against Akron he put seven chalk lines under him for a touchdown...Chased by an injury jinx, Mathys, veteran Green Bay quarterback, turned in his suit last week. In appreciation of his loyal services to the club, the Green Bay directors' board presented Mathys with a watch.
