GRANGE GAME INTEREST CLIMBS HIGH
OCTOBER 20 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Ticket,
ticket, whose got an extra ticket. That is the game that
is being played around here these days as a prelude
to the appearance of Red Grange's Yankees against the
Green Bay Packers at the City Stadium on Sunday.
However, the football corporation is trying to solve the
question. Seats to handle an even thousand have been
borrowed from the West high school and they will be
set up at the east end of the field. Extra benches are
being rounded up and in this way Packer officials hope
to seat all those that want to glimpse the aggregation of
all-Americans over whom Red Grange rule supreme...
STANDING ROOM FOR 1,500: There will be standing
room to take care of at least 1,500 more and from the
way tickets have gone. It is safe to say that all football
attendance records in the state, outside of Madison,
will be smashed to smithereens. The Packer ticket men
who have worked nightly into the wee hours of the 
morning to handle the flood of mail orders and they are
just beginning to see daylight. There probably isn't a
city, town or hamlet in upper Michigan, the Fox river
valley or northeastern Wisconsin who won't have
delegations at Sunday's game. One fan from Winona,
Minn., wired in for a half dozen tickets and another
order for a baker's dozen came from Wheaton, Ill. A 
party of Red Grange's home folks are coming here to
see the former iceman do his stuff against the Big Bay
Blues...ARRIVE SATURDAY NIGHT: The Yanks were
originally billed to arrive here Thursday night but
Manager Pyle has changed his plans and the Yanks
won't hit the Bay until Saturday night. The entire squad
is camping at Wheaton, Ill., according to reports 
received here and they are working out daily under the
watchful eye of Coach Scott, who is attempting to build
up an air defense which will successfully cope with the
Packers' much vaunted passing attack. And in the
meantime, the Packers are working out every morning
in preparation for the Grange game. The team came out
of the grueling battle with the Cardinals in first class
shape. Several of the players were banged pretty hard
but it is a certainty that every one of the Big Bay Blues
will be ready for action when called into the fray...ARE
WORKING HARD: The Big Bay Blues realize the
strength of their opponents and, accordingly, are going
to the limit to be right on edge. Capt. Lambeau has put
in several new plays this week and he will be ready to
pull the string on the bag of tricks again whenever the
opening is ripe.
TRAINING AT WHEATON
OCTOBER 20 (Wheaton, IL) - Every morning at the ball
park a flock of huskies composing the team of the New
York Yankees of the NFL are going through the various
things which make up the routine of a well drilled and
well organized football team in preparation for their
game on Sunday with the famous Green Bay Packers.
The game is to be played at Green Bay. As everyone
knows, this town is the home of Red Grange, the
famous hero of the gridiron who this season is captain
of the Yankees and who is at the present time 
recuperating at the home of his father from the injury
which he sustained last week in the game with the
Chicago Bears. The Yankees will stay here until
Saturday morning when they will go to Chicago and
from there to Green Bay. They expect to arrive in Green
Bay early Saturday evening so as to get a good night's
rest prior to the game. Coach Ralph Scott is busy
preparing for an emergency in case Red is not able to
get into the game. He has "Wild Bill" Kelly all groomed
to fill Grange's place and has prepared a number of
plays designed especially for a man of Kelly's
capabilities. Kelly himself is a great end runner as is
Grange and a lot of the plays which were used when
Red is in the game can also be used when Kelly plays
the position. Coach Scott expressed himself as very
well pleased the way his proteges have been 
progressing without Grange in the ranks and is
confident that they will be able to slip over a win on the
doughty Packers. No definite word has come from the
physician who is taking care of Grange as to whether
or not he will be able to get into the game. However, it
is known that the injury is rapidly on the way to
recovery. The determination of Red is also aiding greatly
in his recovery and it would not be at all surprising if
Grange was able to do his stuff on the gridiron at the
Badger city.
INVITE PACKERS, YANKS TO RED GRANGE MOVIE
OCTOBER 21 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Some
weeks ago when talk turned to Red Grange at the
Columbus club where the Packers headquarter, Marty
Bross, Gonzaga halfback, who was at that time with
the Packer squad, chipped in this information: "Sure, I
know the guy. I was in a moving picture he made on the
coast this summer. Honest I was. I drove a car in a lot
of race scenes he was making." The picture Bross
referred to was Grange's second appearance as a film
star, "The Racing Romeo", and when it opened a four
day run at Columbus auditorium Thursday evening there
were several as interested in checking up the former
Packer's story as in seeing the "Galloping Ghost" 
swelling his bank roll by starring in an exceedingly
funny comedy. And Friday morning they reported that
Marty did not tell a whopper at all. He was recognized
under the helmet in several of the scenes. Both the
Packers and the New York Yankees have been invited
to attend the first show Sunday evening as the guests
of the auditorium management.
BULLETIN
OCTOBER 21 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Tickets for
sections S, T and V, were received from the printer this
morning and they are now on sale at the Football corporation office in The Press-Gazette building. The total seating capacity of these three sections combined is about one thousand and a goodly number of these tickets are still available. Those wanting seats are urged to step lively as every indication points to a rapid sale within the next 36 hours.
STAGE SET FOR GRANGE-PACKER GAME ON SUNDAY
OCTOBER 21 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The invasion of Red Grange here on Sunday with the New York Yankees in their game against the Packers, provided of course that the famous Red gets into action, will mark the first time that he has ever appeared on a football gridiron in the state. While Red was a member of the varsity at Illinois, his team never played Wisconsin, hence Grange never performed at the Wisconsin stadium and since his entrance into professional ranks he has never been nearer to the state than Chicago where he has played on several occasions, first with the Chicago Bears, when he first entered the pro game, then with his own team in the American league last season and now as captain of the Yankees. And incidentally it might be remarked that Red's entrance into professional football was made two years ago when the Packers were playing the Chicago Bears. At that time Grange signed his contract with the Halas Sternaman combine but did not get into the game merely occupying a place on the Bear bench all bundled up in his famous coonskin coat. Since that time Grange has learned a lot about the pro game and has found that it is a much harder row to hoe than playing in college. And although Grange has not performed the miraculous feats in professional football that he did while at college it cannot be denied that the former Wheaton iceman is still the greatest drawing card in the game whether it be professional or collegiate...RECORD CROWD FORECAST: If favorable weather is dished out here on Sunday the crowd at the game will be the largest ever to see a football contest outside of Madison. And to arrange things so that this monster crowd can be handled efficiently has been a huge problem which has been well taken care of by those in charge. In the first place all available seats in the vicinity have been borrowed for the occasion and have been set up around the field. Ordinarily the City stadium has seating room for about 6,000 people but for game on Sunday there will be about 8,500 seats available. To handle the crowd who will occupy these seats will require about 10 extra gatemen, about 40 extra ushers and about a dozen extra police officers as every seat in the park will be a reserved seat. The gates to the stadium will be opened about a half hour earlier than usual. The Packer ticket office has been opened every day from 9 a.m. until 2:45 in the afternoon and from 7:00 in the evening until the late hours of the evening and once until the early hours of the morning. Requests for tickets have been coming in from all over. About the only redeeming feature of this whole thing for the Packer ticket men has been that the more tickets sold now means that much less to do Sunday (and from the way tickets are moving there won't be very much to do then.)...IS TALKED EVERYWHERE: Around the streets of the town all about one can hear is talk of the game. It certainly is going to be a great day for townsfolk and no doubt plenty will happen during the game to give people enough to talk about for weeks to come. People have bought tickets for the contest who have never attended a game before just so that they can be numbered among those who were present and be able to boast about it. The ticket office in The Press-Gazette building will remain open for the rest of the week and every effort will be made to take care of ticket requests. It is a case of first come first served for the few tickets remaining and any who wish tickets will have to step lively.
PRO FOOTBALL GOSSIP
OCTOBER 21 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Red Grange was not serious injured as first reported in the 
GRANGE'S TEAM LOADED WITH STARS
OCTOBER 19 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - When the
New York Yankees step out on the field at the City
stadium next Sunday to do battle with the Packers they
will have in their lineup a host of stars, some of whom
were making great names for themselves in college
circles at the same time that their present captain,
Red Grange, was making his reputation at Illinois. And
perhaps some of them might have achieved the fame of
the Wheaton iceman had not their feats on the gridiron
been sidetracked by those of the sorrel-topped Illini
star. Last season college football circles were amazed
at the performances of "Wild Bill" Kelly of Montana. So
great were the feats of "Wild Bill" that he was awarded
the signal honor of captaining the All-West team in their
annual game with the all-East aggregation on New 
Year's Day at San Francisco. After his graduation from
college Kelly was flooded with numerous offers to play
pro ball and cast his lot with the Yankees. In the back
line of the invaders will also be Eddie Tyron who gained
more than passing fame at Colgate the season before
last. Tyron was a member of the varsity team for four
seasons because at that time the three year rule had
not been put into effect at the Eastern college. During
his collegiate career Tyron scored 350 points and 111
of them were accumulated during his final season...
TWO STAR FULLBACKS: There are also two fullbacks
who just a short time were considered among the real
stars of the Big Ten conference. Bo Molenda performed
under the direction of Yost at Michigan while Wesley 
Fry was at the University of Iowa. And beside these Big
Ten stars there are several others who played with 
some of the teams in Major Griffith's circuit. Iowa has
another representative in Olson, who was on the varsity
for three years in 1924-24 and '26. Illinois has Crawford,
a 220-pound lineman who was on the varsity in 1923
and 1924 and who was on the all-Western team in 
1923. Hall, another of the Yankee linemen, was on the
Illinois teams for two years and before that one year at
Butler. And Indiana furnishes Larry Marks, a backfielder
who although always playing with a weak team gained
considerable of a reputation as a player. For four years
the mainstay of the line of the University of Idaho team
was Ray Stephens and so good was his work in 1924
that he was placed on the all-American teams picked
by Jones, Rockne and Warner. Beside Colgate several
other eastern colleges furnished material for Grange's
present team. Syracuse boasts of Bayley, a lineman
who finished at that school in 1926. Out of Penn State 
there is Michalske, a varsity lineman for 3 seasons.
And Dartmouth is represented by Maloney who played
for 3 season his last being 1925. Last season he acted
as assistant coach at his alma mater...OLIVER FROM
ALABAMA: And from the sunny south is Oliver, who 
lists his alma mater as Alabama, the same school 
which furnished Jones and Perry to the Packers. The
west coast has a flock of college men on the Grange
team. One is Fritz Kramer, a guard at Washington
State college and captain in his last season, 1926. 
Southern California has Badgro who played end at that
school for 3 seasons, last year being on the all-Pacific
team. Baker, one of the backs on the Grange team also
played at that school for one year and prior to that
played two years at the University of Santa Clara. 
Stanford's only representative is Lawson, who played at
that school for 3 yards and in 1923 and 1924 was a
unanimous choice for the all-Pacific team picked by 
Glen Warner and who in 1924 was on the all American
picked by Warner, Jones and Rockne. And last but not
least is Dick Flaherty's brother is Ray, who played at
Gonzaga along with Tiny Cahoon. Last season he 
played with Wilson's Wildcats in the "Grange" league
and was given the berth at end on the all-professional
team. He has been going in great form this year and
gives every indication of again being the choice of the
experts on the mythical eleven.
BULLETIN
OCTOBER 20 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - All the
uncalled for tickets for the Red Grange game, which
have been reserved but not paid for at the usual places
about town, will be picked up by the Packer ticket men
this evening. The Football corporation announced this
step a week ago so plenty of time has been afforded
prospective customers. All these seats (if there are
any) will be resorted and placed on sale at the Football
corporation office in The Press-Gazette building. Those
who have reserved seats at The Press-Gazette must
pick them up early tonight or else the ducats will be
sold to first comers.
PACKERS ABOUT SET TO PLAY BADGERS IN
MILWAUKEE, OCT. 30
OCTOBER 20 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Tentative
arrangements were completed last night over the long
distance telephone with Johnny Bryan whereby the
Packers will invade Milwaukee on Sunday, Oct. 30, to
play the Milwaukee Badgers. The game will be played
at Athletic park and will take the place of the contest
originally scheduled for Nov. 13. This change was made
necessary by the withdrawal of the Buffalo club from
the National league. The date of Nov. 13 on which the
Packers were originally billed for Milwaukee will be filled
by some crack eastern team and will take the place of
the game scheduled at home for Oct. 30 with the
Buffalo aggregation. Holders of season tickets can use
their tickets for the Buffalo game at the game to be
played in the local stadium on Nov. 13. It is expected
that the moving ahead of the Milwaukee game will
enable a large number of Green Bay fans to take in the
game. It is on the Sunday just after the Marquette
homecoming when a great many Green Bay people will
be in the Cream City and also being two weeks earlier
will no doubt make the weather much more favorable for
driving thus allowing many people to motor down for the game.
GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - A Packer team, that looked like the greatest that ever wore the gold and blue, gave Chris O'Brien and his Chicago Cardinals a football lesson Sunday afternoon at the City stadium that they probably won't forget for a long time. When Head Linesman Iverson tooted the horn for the end of the fracas, there was big 7 and 6 on the scoreboard for the Packers while the Cardinals has nothing but a row of goose eggs. It sure was an unlucky 13 for the South Siders from the Windy City. And the funny part of it all that Chris O'Brien is willing to admit that the Packers are very much there. While the Cardinal manager was collecting his money at the bank after the game, he
tossed this verbal bouquet in the direction of Lambeau
& Co.: "I don't think there is another team in the league
that has a thing on the Packers. The Green Bay club
certainly played football against us. I can honestly say
that I never have seen a better looking pro team. If the
Packers can keep up the clip they showed against us,
I think your club is going to come mighty near copping
the national championship.
GREAT DAY FOR DUNN
It certainly was a great day for Red Dunn and the 4,500
spectators who saw the Cardinals get theirs aplenty.
Revenge is sweet and Dunn had a smile on his face
about a mile wide when it was over but the shouting.
For two years, Red drew his football wares from Chris
O'Brien. Toward the close of last season, O'Brien turned
sour on the former Marquette star and he publicly
announced that Dunn would be one of the first to go
when he started his housecleaning. Naturally this didn't
set very well on the Red-Head, who is a real footballer
if there every was one. But he got even with O'Brien and
his hirelings. Dunn was in the midst of everything and
when he tucked the cowhide under his arm it took half
the visitors to stop him. Red seemed to take special
delight in peeling off yards right in front of the Cardinal
bench where "King Chris" was sitting on a rather
uncomfortable gridiron throne. It is safe to say that
O'Brien must have chewed up a dozen cigars watching
the Packer quarterback strut his stuff.
CARDS BADLY OUTCLASSED
The score doesn't half tell how badly the Cardinals were
outclassed. From the time Lewellen dashed 25 yards 
off tackle on the first play of the game until Dilweg
grabbed a pass and took the ball to the Cards' 5-yard
line on the next play to the last thrust in the closing
seconds, Guy Chamberlin's club spent an awful busy
afternoon keeping their goal line free from more than
two touchdowns. Only twice during the game were the
Chicagoans really dangerous. In the third frame a 
couple of passes put the ball well down in the Packers'
backyard but the Bays knocked down a couple of
tosses and they regained the oval on the 20-yard line.
Again in the fourth round (and it was a round at that),
the visitors picked up 35 yards on two passes but their
next air move was snagged by Enright and he stepped
back to the Packers' 35-yars stripe before he was
dumped. Those two minor offenses tell the Cardinals'
advancement story in a nutshell. During the first half,
they didn't gain enough yardage to even worry the most
rabid Packer fan.
STOPPED 'EM NEAR GOAL
The only time that the Chicagoans seemed able to halt
the Packers was when they were fighting in the shadow
of their goal posts. It is safe to say that the Big Bay
Blues were "up there" close at least a half dozen times
without making the scoring grade. The Packers
launched three thrusts that looked like sure counts in
the first quarter but each time the Cardinals held tight.
Twice passes went astray and a fumble spilled the 
beans on the other attempt. But in the second quarter,
the Bays were not to be denied. The period was just a
few minutes old when Dick O'Donnell speared a pass
from Lewellen for an 8-yard gain. This put the cowhide
on the Cards' 40-yard line. Lewellen slashed through for
a first down. Dunn then skirted past the Cardinal bench
for another ten. Two line plunges netted little but then
Dunn heaved the ball to Dilweg, who made one of his
copyrighted catches. He was downed four yards from a
touchdown. Lewellen picked up about 3 yards in two
rushes. Here the string was cut on the bag of tricks and
Dunn tossed a lateral pass to Eddie Kotal who pranced
over for the first touchdown. Red Dunn missed the goal
kick. This was the only time that Chris O'Brien smiled
during the entire game. 
ONLY FLASH IN PAN
Later in this quarter, McDonnell grabbed one of Lewellen's punts and dashed back down the field. He jaunted some 45 yards before Dunn nailed him. But this was only a flash in the pan because on the second following play, Enright intercepted a Cardinal pass, choking off a weak-kneed rally. After the Cardinals' short lived spurt in the third quarter, the Packers righted their football ship again, and things went smoothly. Red Smith bobbed into the limelight during this period. After Lewellen, who punted superbly all during the game, had booted to the Cards' 29-yard line, the visitors attempted a pass, Smith pulled out of the line and made a circus catch but momentarily he lost his sense of direction. He took about three steps towards the Packers' goal before he turned around and stepped forth in the right direction. The crowd got a good laugh and even the players had to grin. Just at the end of the period, the Packers tried a pass for a touchdown. Springsteen grabbed the ball and started one way. Then he turned back trying to dodge and was dumped on the Cards' 4-yard line as time was called.
PASSES, PASSES, PASSES
In the first play of the final frame, Weller kicked from behind his goal line to Red Dunn who was dumped on the Chicagoans' 42-yard mark. Dunn grabbed a pass from Lewellen for a 15-yard gain. After Lewellen had been stopped, a pass to Dilweg failed by inches. The Cards got Lavvie hard on this play but he survived the shock. Lambeau was on the receiving end of a toss from Dunn and it was first down for the Packers on the Cardinals' 9-yard stripe. Lewellen shot by the once mighty Ellis for six yards and then Enright made a yard. Lewellen was equal to the occasion and he squeezed through the line for the necessary touchdown distance. Red Dunn added the extra point and everybody breathed easier. There was a lot of excitement in the closing minutes as the air was full of footballs. The Cards were tossing 'em far and wide with but little success while the Packers' bullet-like pegs made another score look possible. In between times, Springsteen got rough with O'Donnell and Referee Cahn got rough with both of them so he chased the battlers to the sidelines. With but two minutes to go, the Packers uncorked several new plays and the Cardinals were run ragged. As the whistle blew a Packer pass fell dead back of the visitors' goal line but who cared. Enough is plenty.

PYLE SAYS HIS STAR WILL BE O.K. BY SUNDAY
OCTOBER 18 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - According
to a telegram received by A.B. Turnbull, president of the
Green Bay Football corporation, from Charles C. Pyle,
manager of the New York Yankees, Red Grange was
not hurt as badly as reported in the game against the
Bears and he will be in condition to play against the
Packers here on Sunday. Pyle's telegram is as follows:
"Grange not hurt as badly as reported. Will be in
condition for next Sunday's game." The news about
Grange's banging in the Bear game traveled around the
Green Bay football sector like wildfire and the sport
desk of the Press-Gazette was kept busy all Monday
answering queries about the famous Red-Head. Several
calls from Upper Michigan were made about the 
"Wheaton Iceman"...MR. TURNBULL'S STATEMENT:
Speaking about the Grange injury, President Turnbull of
the Green Bay Football corporation had this to say:
"The telegram from Mr. Pyle is the latest news we have
about Grange. Pyle says Grange will be in condition to
play Sunday and that is all we know aside from the
news stories in the Chicago papers which said that
Grange hoped to have recovered from his injury 
sufficiently to play against the Packers at Green Bay. 
We have requested Mr. Pyle to keep us in close touch
on Grange's condition and the minute we get any 
reports, they will be published immediately."...RECORD
CROWD SURE: "In the meantime, the Football
corporation is going ahead with its plans to house the
greatest crowd at the City stadium next Sunday that
ever witnessed a football game in Wisconsin outside of
the "U" contests at Madison. Our advance set sale has
been enormous, yet the Football corporation has hopes
of having a seat for everybody. 'Enlargements' are now
underway at the stadium and seats will be placed at
every point of vantage around the playing field."...800
MORE SEATS: "Arrangements were completed last
night for an additional 800 seats which will be set up at
the east end of the gridiron. The stands at the west end
of the field are being moved slightly to afford better view
and to also provide for three rows of bench seats and a
greatly enlarged standing room space. In order to
handle the record breaking demand for tickets, the
Football corporation's office in The Press-Gazette
building will be open from 8:30 in the morning until 2:45
and in the evening from 7:30 until 9 p.m."...PLENTY OF
TICKETS: "There are still plenty of tickets on hand and
we figure that the additional 800 seats will go a long
way towards taking care of the 'eleventh hour' rush. 
However, those desiring tickets are urged not to wait
until the last minute because the Football corporation
cannot promise how long the supply will last. At the
present figuring, we should be able to seat about 9,000
spectators at Sunday's Grange game and have 
standing room for about 1,500 more. No standing room
tickets will be sold, however, until every seat in the park
has been disposed of."
YANKEES COMING STRONG
OCTOBER 18 (Chicago) - Despite the injury to Capt.
Red Grange, the New York Yankees are all set to
invade Green Bay this weekend and hand a trimming to
the famous Packers in order to get back into the race
for title honors in the National league. The defeat last
Sunday at the hands of the Chicago Bears has not in
the least disturbed the confidence of the Yankees,
rather it has put into the players a greater spirit of
determination than ever before. The players have also
been considerably cheered by the announcement that
the injuries to their fiery captain are not as serious as
was first thought and that the chances are bright for his
reappearance in the lineup against the Green Bay
aggregation. After the game Red went immediately to
his home at Wheaton where he is receiving special
treatment and is under the care of a doctor. He will take
a complete rest for three or four days and by that time
confidently expects to be able to get back into the
lineup. During the time Grange is recuperating the team
will be going through their practice sessions under 
Coach Ralph Scott, formerly of the Chicago Bears. 
Incidentally, it might be said that Scott has played
against the Packers on numerous occasions and
knows their style to a "T" and will no doubt pay special
attention to perfecting a defense against the famous
passing attack of the Green Bay team...TYRON
WONDER GRIDDER: In looking over the makeup of the
New York aggregation, one of the most noted sports
writers in Chicago was surprised at the great number of
famous college stars on the roster besides Grange.
Foremost is the famous Eddie Tyron who graced the
rolls of the All-American teams for several years while
at Colgate. During his final year he was the leading
scorer of the country, getting 111 points. And another
celebrity is "Wild Bill" Kelly, who captained the All
West team which played against an All East team at
San Francisco last New Years' day. These two
backfielders along with the famous Bo Molenda of
Michigan can cause any team considerable trouble to
hold them in check. There is another coincidence in the
appearance of the Yankees at Green bay. One of the
ends on the Yankee team is Ray Flaherty. He is a
brother of Dick Flaherty who played a similar position
on the Packer team last year and this season also until
forced out of the game with injuries. It is said that last
year there was considerable argument around Green
Bay as to which of the Flahertys was the better end
and Ray is exceedingly anxious to convince the people
of the Badger City that he has considerable of an edge
over his brother. And on the Yankee team, too, is
another man who played against the Green Bay
aggregation on several occasions. He is Kolls, a center
who played for several years with the once famous Rock Island Independents. Kells is a veteran in the pro game and he should have an interesting battle with Earpe of the Packers who also at one time was a member of the Rock Island gang.
BUFFALO PRO CLUB GIVES UP FRANCHISE IN NATIONAL LEAGUE
OCTOBER 18 (Buffalo) - The Buffalo team of the NFL will disband, it was decided Monday by President Ray P. Weil and Alfred J. Lofe, secretary and treasurer of the club. Remaining games on the schedule will be cancelled, they announced. Action to disband was taken after the club received the resignation of George (Dim) Patterson, coach and manager of the team. He gave lack of cooperation from players and interference by club managers as the reasons for his resignation...IN TOUCH WITH CARR: Notification of the Buffalo club's withdrawal from the league was received here this morning by the Football corporation, in the form of a telegram from Alfred J. Lofe, secretary of the Bison organization. President Turnbull got in immediate touch with President Joe F. Carr and every effort possible is being made to bring a first class team here on Sunday, Oct. 30, to fill the date left open by the untimely exit of the Buffaloians.
DILWEG, FOOTBALL STAR, TO DIRECT BOYS
WORK AT THE COLUMBUS CLUB
OCTOBER 22 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Laverne
Dilweg, All-American end, Packer football ace, and
attorney, is henceforth also a resident of Green Bay, a
member of the Brown County bar, and director of Boys
Work at Columbus Community club. Veni, vidi, vici! It
was not at all to avoid running back and forth from
Milwaukee each week that convinced the lanky athlete,
according to his own report of the most recent
developments in his active career, but because he really
liked Green Bay, knew that his wife would like Green
Bay and the folks and because he felt that a career in
Green Bay offered promise for a youngster as willing to
work as this same "Lavvie" has always been. About a
month ago officials of the Columbus Community club
approached Dilweg, who had performed successfully
during his university career as boys secretary in one of
the big boy organizations in Milwaukee, regarding the
direction of boys club activities at the local club. The
club for some months has intended to augment its
personnel in the boys division to properly attend to the
steadily increasing enrollment of youngsters and young
men. The work was attractive to Dilweg, but he was
vitally interested in launching into the professional
career for which he had trained himself. Soon the
possibility of entering any of several law firms in the city
was being considered and not long ago Dilweg
accepted on the same afternoon the directorship of
boys work at the Columbus Club and a place with
Sheridan Evrard and Cranston. He will be at the club
every evening and after school afternoons. The first three
days of this week the Dilwegs spent in "just shopping
for their home" which they are furnishing in Green Bay
and both the lawyer-athlete and his bride of less than a
year are very definite in their pronouncements that they
are here "for keeps". "Right next to football, I've always
liked boys who work best," said the Packers star, "I
had to work my own way through the university and I
hated to leave my work with Northwestern 'Y' as much
as I disliked to experience the end of my school days.
Work with boys offers wonderful opportunities for a
fellow who really enjoys it, and I do enjoy it. Associative
with boys, supervising their competitive games, working
out their natural trends with them has many rewards. I
feel particularly fortunate in getting the experience of the
busy district attorney's office for my first law work and
be able at the same time to indulge in work which I
enjoy as well as directing the boys week in this
magnificent and thoroughly equipped clubhouse." Ed
Johnson, who has for some time been secretary in the
boys department, will continue in that capacity.
​HUGE CROWD TO SEE SUNDAY'S GAME
OCTOBER 22 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The 
greatest sport event Green Bay has ever experienced 
will be on tap Sunday afternoon when Red Grange's
New York Yankees and the Green Bay Packers have it
out in a NFL battle which will get underway promptly at
2:15. Never has the Packer football sector been so
aroused over a football game. For several weeks the
fans have been clamoring for tickets and the advance
sale smashed every known record of the Football
corporation by a city block...HAVE GREAT
AGGREGATION: The New Yorkers are bringing one of
the greatest football teams in the country. So far this
season, they have scored victories over Dayton,
Cleveland and Buffalo. Last Sunday, Grange and his
cohorts lost a tough 12-0 game to the Bears at Cubs park but it was a battle all the way. Charlie Pyle, promoter extraordinary, who is the man behind Grange and his Yankee squad, went over the country with a fine comb in search of the best football material that ever wore moleskins and from the looks of things he succeeded. Money talks and so does Pyle but when it comes to football "Cash and Carry" lets his hired hands do the talking on the chalk-marked field...FAST SET OF BACKS: To begin with, the Yanks have the greatest collection of backs that were ever together on one club. Aside from the superstar, Red Grange, all-American footballer for three year at Illinois, the Yanks have Eddie Tyron, of Colgate; Wild Bill Kelly, of Montana; Bo Molenda, of Michigan; Eddie Fry, of Iowa; Rollie Marks, of Indiana, and Bullet Baker, of California. On the ends, the Yanks have Maloney, of Dartmouth, and Ray Flaherty, of Gonzaga. Last year Flaherty, who is a brother of the Packers' Dick, was picked as the best wingman in professional football. Bayley, of Syracuse; Crawford, of Illinois; Scott, of Wisconsin, and Hall, another Illini, play the tackles...BEST IN EAST: Michalske, who was rated as the best footballer in the east last year, plays guard and captains the Yankees. Other center flankers are Kremer, of California; Olson, of Iowa, and Oliver, of Alabama. Stephens, ace of the 1926 Idaho eleven, passes the ball at center with Kells, a Rock Island Independent veteran, as his first assistant. The New Yorkers arrive here early this evening and will headquarter at the Northland hotel. The Easterners have spent the week at Wheaton, Ill., the hometown of Red Grange. The team stopped at the Wheaton Country club and did their practicing on the greens. Instead of trying to make holes in one, they were drilling new plays with which they hope to make holes in the forward wall of the Big Bay Blues...PACKERS ARE READY: The Packer squad is fit for the battle. Every man on the eleven is in the pink and there isn't a member of Capt. Lambeau's crew who is not eager for a crack at the much-famed New Yorkers. The Bays have spruced up their defense while the smooth working attack has been augmented by several new formation which are quite apt to give Pyle-Grange & Co. plenty to worry about. The winner of this game is going a long way in the championship race and it is safe to say that the Bay gridders have no intention of moving backwards...DONE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE: The Packer management has done everything possible to have a seat for everybody. First another extra thousand seats were set up in the park. This wasn't enough and another grand of seats was squeezed in the stadium along with enough park benches to seat another 650. This means a total seating capacity of about 9,000 and there will be room for another 1,500, at least, to stand up. It will be a great gathering of fans. Tickets have been sold to parties as far north as Winona, Minn. and Marquette, Mich., and as far south as Wheaton, Ill. and Chicago. Stevens Point, La Crosse and Madison are sending large delegations. One of the railroads is running a special "Red Grange Game" excursion and this is expected to bring hundreds of "eleventh hour" spectators...MORE GATE-MEN, USHERS, POLICE: The Football corporation has gone the limit to handle the monster crowd with as little confusion as possible. More gate-men will be on the job; extra ushers will work in the new reserved seat sections; the Legion force will be nearly doubled; every available policeman has been assigned to duty at the stadium by Chief Hawley; the city motorcycle officers will be in charge of the parking while the county speed demon chasers are to be on hand to give a  hand whenever it is necessary. The gates at the park will be opened promptly at noon. This is half an hour earlier than usual but the management wants to have the stage set nicely when the throng starts pouring through the half dozen gates of the park. The American Legion band will be on hand long before the time for the kickoff and the musicians have been running signals several time this past week in order to uncork some new tuneful formations on the fans.
