(NEW YORK) - "Make 'em like it". That's what Johnny Blood said, as he crossed the goal line standing up in last minute of play against the Giants here Sunday which resulted in the most notable victory which resulted in the most notable victory the Green Bay Packers have ever scored on the professional football gridiron. The score was 20 to 6 but that was of no account. Aside from a few minutes in the third period when Benny Friedman shot a few horseshoe forward passes to Heavy Feather and Perry's friend, Flaherty, the Giants didn't get to first base during the entire combat. This one thrust of the New Yorkers resulted in their lone counter for the March-Andrew-Mara combination. Benny Friedman missed the goal by a city block. Getting back to the ball game, from the Packers' point of view, it was superb. Speaking of ironmen, the Bays were living examples. Captain Lambeau made only one change in his lineup, that coming in the last minute of play when Paul Minick was sent in in place of Jim Bowdoin. What is more the Packers took only two timeouts for injuries. It was an exceptional exhibition of what a fighting ball club will do. Even staid old New Yorkers who came out to the Polo Grounds just to see another game got one thrill after another over the way the boys from Wisconsin proceeded to teach the Giants a football lesson and, incidentally, shoved Benny Friedman's nose in the mud whenever the opportunity presented itself.
It would be impossible to pick one of an outstanding
Packer star. Lewellen got off some of his copyrighted
kicks which several times changed the complexion of
the game in the first half. Every time Lew would boot 
the ball, a chorus of oh's would re-echo back and forth
across the Polo Grounds and even a very strong pro-
Giant partisan on the loud speaker had to admit that 
the "lawyer guy" from Wisconsin has an educated hoof
and then some. Johnny Blood was there with bells on
as usual. He took special delight in making fun of some
of the Giants and the mudbaths never washed off his
smile. Blood was here, there and everywhere, playing
the same brand of ball that put Nevers to shame in last
Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Bo Molenda 
never looked better in a Packer uniform. He busted that
old line like in his palmy days when he was making
conference football history for Michigan under Fielding
Yost. Molenda found a soft spot to his liking on the
push side of the New York line and he proceeded to
spin through this gap for the needed yardage on a 
couple of close fit first downs. McCrary also sparkled.
He made the first touchdown for the Packers on a
beautiful play after out-witting nobody else than the
famous Friedman. McCrary performed nicely on the
defense, knocking down a couple of the Giants' pass
which, if he had been caught, would have been ticketed
for touchdowns. These four backs started and finished
for Green Bay. So far as records go, it is the first time
that a feat like this has been accomplishes in the NFL
for six years. Just another reason for Green Bay fans
to be proud of the Packers.
And what a game the Packer line put up. Coach Curly
Lambeau was using a new defense formation, and this
possibly did not give the front line so much of a chance
to bask in the limelight. However, every one of the
players bored in and made life miserable for Friedman
every time he got back to shoot a forward pass. It got
so that when Benny started to make a toss he would
fade at least ten yards closer to his own goal before
getting set to hurl the cowhide. And of course this did
not hurt the Packers' cause any. Nash and Dilweg gave
a splendid account of themselves at the ends. Neither
of their flanks were turned off them although the Giants
were running heavy interference in a futile attempt to get
a couple of their light-hoofed backs out in the open. The
Bay tackles, Kern and Hubbard, played like a pair
inspired. It was a revenge game for Hubbard and he
made the most of it. He had the time of his life during 
the final quarter putting his former teammates on the
pan, and the way he razzed the Owen brothers and 
Mule Watson drew a big laugh from the handful of
spectators who were in hearing distance along the 
sidelines. Kern was a team in himself. Often he knifed
through the New York interference and dumped the
carrier for heavy losses. Mike Michalske once again showed that he was the best guard in professional football. Several times he rushed Friedman so strenuously that Benny tossed the ball as if he were shooting at the moon. Mike was there chattering every minute and his "pep and vinegar" went a long way towards breaking New York's winning streak. The old reliable Jimmy Bowdoin had an enjoyable afternoon. James likes the rough going and he feasted on it from first to last. He, too, took special delight in picking on Friedman.
Sore arm and all, Jugger Earpe turned in his best game of the season for Green Bay. He looked like the Earpe of old, often roaming and getting tackles far from his original position. And, in the last quarter, he started the Packers on the road to their third touchdown by intercepting a pass in midfield, and running about five yards before half of the of the Giant team brought him to earth.
It did not take the Packers long to let the spectators know the Giants had a ball game on their hands. Shortly after the first quarter started, following an exchange of kicks, the Packers marched 38 yards down the field, mixing straight and "Lindberg" football as a vehicle for their procession. Getting down into the "touchdown zone", the Giants held tight on a couple of thrusts, then Lewellen outsmarted these New Yorkers, who were looking for more straight football. The district attorney faked a line plunge, stepped back and shot the ball into the waiting hands of McCrary, who was parked in the end zone playing a game of tag with Friedman. This was one time that Benny was not "it". Bo Molenda added insult to injury by booting the horsehide through the uprights for the extra point making the score, 7-0. Following the next kickoff, the Packers stepped lively again but they were unable to
bunch their gains. At the beginning of the second period
Lewellen punted from behind his own goal line to Benny
Friedman, who made a nice return, and the ball was in
Packers' territory. At this stage of the game the Giants
began yelping for a touchdown, but their cries were
wasted because that battling Packer forward wall could
be likened to a stone wall, while Friedman's passes 
were not as much as they were cracked up to be. The
Packers recovered the ball on downs by a six-inch
margin, and then Lewellen got away with a quick kick
to the Giants' 18 yard line. In the meantime, a penalty
for clipping had sent the Packers back 25 yards but this
did not stop the fighting Bays. Toward the close of the
quarter, Green Bay was deep in the Giants' territory and
several times it looked as though a touchdown would
When the third quarter got underway, the Giants kicked
off to the Packers and Lewellen soon booted the ball
far down the field. At this stage of the game the Giants
launched their touchdown march. Several well directed
tosses piled up yardage. And it was not long before the
Packers were on the defense, not far from the shadow
of their own goal posts. Two line plays picked up a "4'
and then Friedman tossed a pass to Plansky and the
touchdown resulted. Benny's educated toe was all
covered with mud and he missed the try from placement. Right here Packer stock was not much above par. That one point margin did not look so big the way Friedman was throwing passes. However, the spurt was soon ended. With the next kickoff out of the way, the Packers came crashing in harder and faster than ever. Savage tackling, lots of smearing, and plenty of fight, soon took all the wind out of the Giants' sails. There was no more scoring in the third period, but the Packers got the touchdown habit with twins in the final stanza much to the joy of Badger loyalists who were having the time of their lives at the expense of the New York contingent. The fourth quarter was about half over when Lewellen pitched a thirty-yard pass to McCrary who stepped to the Giants' 25-yard line before the speed merchant of Georgia was halted. The Packers then opened their straight football book and Bo Molenda was a hero, getting some good assistance from his playmates behind the lines. A half dozen rushes took the ball to the Giants' 18-inch line. It was fourth down, goal to go, and, as the natives yelled "Hold 'em, Giants", Bo Molenda put his head down and crashed across the mark for a touchdown. He added the extra point with a kick.
It was growing dark after the Packers' second touchdown. The rain, which had fallen continuously during the game, stopped but a mist began to settle over the gridiron and some of the experts in the press box, which was located up in the second deck of the grandstand, had trouble spotting the players. Flood lights were turned on the field, but this was not of much assistance. The Packers kicked off to the Giants. Coach Andrews' team was not even a 100 to 1 shot at this stage of the game, but they kept playing with pass after pass, even deep in their territory. Several of the tosses looked "okeh", but then Jugger Earpe bobbed up in the gloaming and intercepted a Friedman toss about midfield. This was the start of another Packer touchdown. The Bays were getting fat on Giant meat, and they helped themselves to another plate. Tackle smashes, end runs and short passes worked like a charm. In less time than it takes to write about it, the Packers were down there right near the goal line as the announcer said, "One minute and a half to play". It was at this stage of the game that Johnny Blood burst forth "make 'em like it", and he did to such an extent that he slipped through a hole made by the Packers' left side and scored standing up.  Molenda kicked the goal, but the Packers were offside, and one point was forfeited. As the game ended, the Packers again had the ball, and were headed apparently for another touchdown, when the gun popped, there was wild whoopee on the field and those Badgers from Wisconsin, happy as school boys, raced through an admiring throng of spectators to the club house with the national league championship right in their grasp. Among the Green Bay people in the stands were Mr. and Mrs. H.L. Atkinson, William Schwartz, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Golden, Louis Vandenbusch, R. Ellsworth Larsson, Vincent Engels and George Morgan.

NOVEMBER 25 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Fred E. Burrall received a telegram from Dr. Kelly last night, in which the football club president said, the New York
crowd was rooting for the Packers before the game was
over. "We made them look like amateurs," Kelly wired.
"There was nothing to it. We could not be stopped."
NOVEMBER 25 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Otto 
Kaap was one of the many hundred of Green Bay fans
that wired congratulations to the Packers are their win
in New York but his wire probably was more welcome
than many in that it promised the players a free "feed"
when they returned. Mr. Kapp, who is proprietor of 
Kapp's restaurant, wired the players that he would give
them a real banquet as a result of the victory.
NOVEMBER 25 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - There is
hum of excitement in all Green Bay today. In homes,
offices, stores on the street and everywhere, there
seems to be but one subject of conversation - Packers.
The great 20 to 6 victory of the Green Bay team against
the New York Giants has set the city on edge. The
whole town is wild in realization of a dream come true.
Very faint, but still audible, one fan in probably a 
thousand rises up to ask meekly about the remaining
three games. He is immediately drowned out in a
chorus of cheers for the victory in the Giant game.
"What matters the other games," the 99 say. "We beat
the Giants and we can do it to the others. Nothing will
stop us now." They also point to the record of ten
straight league wins, which they say is enough to settle
any football championship...CITYWIDE CELEBRATION:
Celebrations of the victory started immediately after the
game Sunday afternoon and many continued through 
the night. Everyone was jubilant and the telegraph
companies did a thriving business in messages of
congratulations to the players. More than 400 telegrams
were sent over Western Union wires while the Postal Telegraph company handled approximately 100, before it closed at 6 p.m. The crowd of fans watching the gridgraph presentation of the game, broke into a wild cheer that probably was heard for many blocks after the game was over and thousands that listened to radio reports were equally jubilant. Reports indicate that interest in the game was at a high pitch throughout the state. In every hotel of major importance in the state, lobby radios were tuned in on the game while thousands of fans listened to the report over the radio at their homes...SUPREME COURT BID: One of the telegraph messages sent to Verne Lewellen told him that he was to be recommended to Governor Walter J. Kohler for the vacant position on the state Supreme Court bench because of his magnificent work in the game. Everyone was of the opinion that the city and citizens should do something in a big way for the players. All expressed willingness to contribute to a mammoth homecoming celebration or any other expression of commendation to the team.
NOVEMBER 26 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Green Bay football fans today responded generously to the proposal to raise a fund of $5,000 for the Packer football
team and at 1:30 this afternoon more than $700 had
been subscribed, it was announced by A.B. Turnbull,
who is handling the fund. Men from all walks of like sent
in donations today, ranging from $1.00 to 50 cents and
from all indications a flood of contributions will start
rolling in during the next 24 hours. Green Bay has a
splendid chance to show its appreciation of the efforts
of the Packers in putting this city on the football map
and everyone is urged to send in a donation, regardless
of the size. A large number of business houses are
considering contributions and the sponsors of the fund
except to receive some substantial donations in a day
or two...PLAYER IN GOOD SPIRITS: A telegram today
received from Captain E.L. Lambeau says: "Know fund
will be greatly appreciated by the players. Spirit
wonderful in practice today in early September weather.
Kern may be out with injuries, but rest of squad O.K."
There is no organized soliciting so everyone is urged to
get on the "bandwagon" and send in whatever they feel
they can to give aid to the good work. No donation is
too small. The money will be presented to the team
upon its return from its Eastern invasion. 
NOVEMBER 26 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - A public
banquet and mammoth homecoming celebration for the
Green Bay Packer football team will be staged here
probably the week after the final game against the
Chicago Bears, it was announced today by Richard F. Malia, secretary of the Association of Commerce. Definite plans for the date and place of the affair have not been completed, but probably will be worked out in the next few days, the secretary said. The banquet will be sponsored by the Association of Commerce with the cooperation of Packer football corporation official and other public-spirited citizens...TESTIMONIAL DINNER: "The banquet would be in the nature of a testimonial dinner commending the players for their splendid showing in winning every game played this year to gain the top runs on the National Professional league ladder," Mr. Malia said. "The outspoken expression of every Green Bay fan has favored such a banquet and arrangements probably will have to made to accommodate hundreds of persons who will wish to attend. A committee of about 12 men will be named in a short time and they will be able to map out definite plans for the festivity. It will be necessary to consult Capt. Lambeau and Dr. Kelly, president of the club, before a definite time and place is set, as we do not want the dinner to interfere in any way with the remaining games on the schedule."
NOVEMBER 26 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Fans in Michigan cities also are back of the Packers, and are plugging for them in the National league race. The following telegram was received today from Crystal Falls: "The people of Crystal Falls wish to take this opportunity to congratulate the Packers in regard to their splendid victory over the New York Giants. We believe we feel just as proud of the Packers' victory as the people of Green Bay and Wisconsin do themselves. - Paul Schook."
NOVEMBER 26 (Milwaukee) - The Green Bay Packer-Frankford Yellowjacket football game in Philadelphia Thanksgiving day will be broadcast over the Milwaukee WTMJ radio station, it was announced here today by F.H. Casey, advertising manager of the Wadhams'
Oil company, sponsors of the broadcast. Arrangements
also have been made by the company to report score 
by quarters at the annual East-West game in Green
Bay, Mr. Casey said.
NOVEMBER 26 (Atlantic City, NJ) - The Green Bay
Packers, first placers in the NFL race, worked out here
this morning at the city athletic field in preparation for
their game with the Yellow Jackets at Philadelphia on
Thanksgiving day. An admiring throng of onlookers gave
the mighty Badgers "the once over" and they got quite
an eyeful while the husky Wisconsin footballers went
through their loosening up drill, which included setting
up exercises, chasing punts and a tag game of football.
The Green Bay "ironmen" came out of their grueling
combat with the New York Giants in pretty good shape.
Bill Kern has a lame shoulder, while several of the other
players are suffering from muscle bruises, but Dr. Kelly
thinks that all these players will be ready to step up
against the Jackets. What's more, Eddie Kotal and Red
Dunn are just about ready for the whistle again. Both of
these players are now in there running signals and if
needed they will probably be set for activity in the
turkey day combat. "King Joy" rules supreme in the
Packer roost. The boys feel very much at home in
Atlantic City, and S.A. Bell, Morton hotel manager, has
gone the limit to do everything possible for the gridders
from the Badger state. When the Packers arrived here from New York Monday evening, there was a special dinner on the table for the gridders and it didn't take the players very long to put on the "bag". Bo Molenda was right in his glory with several of the others not far behind...DR. KELLY TO REMAIN: The squad is tickled over the fact that Dr. Kelly has decided to carry on. The football president had at first planned to return home after the game in New York but changed his mind after the players had just about threatened to kidnap him if he made any move like "going west". The doctor put up the white flag, cancelled his reservations for Chicago, and is now enjoying the salt water baths in this seashore resort. Veteran New York newspaper men who called at the Lincoln hotel in Gotham Monday morning before the Bays pulled out said that no team has ever received the "flowery" ink bestowed upon Green Bay. Several of the writers even went so far as to say that the Packers could spot the best college team in the country three touchdowns and then beat them in ten minute period. One news hound expressed his opinion that the Packers of 1929 was the greatest eleven in football history, collegiate, professional or otherwise. It is needless to add that the boys were busy mailing some of this "halo" writeups back to the home folks, hardly before the ink was dry on the newsprint...POINT FOR JACKETS: The boys are now pointing for Philadelphia. The players know that they have a battle on their hands and old man over-confidence is not on the Packers' rooming list. Sunday, the Jackets played a soft non-league game and eight of the Hornet regulars were among those present at the game with the Giants. One thing is sure - they got a fine eyeful and then some. According to the present schedule, mapped out by Coach Lambeau, the team will leave here late Wednesday for Philadelphia. Headquarters in Quakertown will be at the Adelphia hotel. The team will stay in Philadelphia until Saturday noon, when they will leave for Providence. Sunday night, after the Providence game, the team heads back to Atlantic City. On Friday, Dec. 6th, the boys leave for Chicago where on Sunday they meet their old enemies, the Bears.
NOVEMBER 26 (Philadelphia Inquirer) - Bob Haines, manager of the Frankford Yellowjackets, yesterday announced the signing of Johnny Thompson, last year's great guard at Lafayette, who has been coaching the freshmen eleven this year. Thompson was in a uniform at the Clifton Heights game on Sunday and held his first workout with the team in the Yellowjackets' stadium yesterday and likely will be in the lineup on Thanksgiving Day when the undefeated Green Bay leaders play here. Thompson was an All-Eastern selection last year and also was placed on a number of All-American teams. He was regarded by officials as the best guard of the year. He hails from Lykens, Pa., and stands 5 foot 11 inches high and tips the scales at nearly 200 pounds. He is the greatest forward developed at Lafayette since the days of Frank "Dutch" Schwab, an all-American selection in 1921 and 1922. He does everything Schwab does and more - he is a fine placement kicker, an art foreign to most linesmen. Thompson is in the pink of condition and should be a big help to the Jackets in the remaining games. While it is his first venture in pro football he is just the type of player who will make good. He also is a baseball star, being somewhat of a slugger. His work attracted the attention of a number of big league scouts, but so far has turned a deaf ear to playing pro baseball. Manager Haines realizes that the big test of the year confronts Frankford on Thursday and Coach Behman has been ordered to drill his men twice a day. They were out both yesterday morning and afternoon and the same program will hold good today. In the meantime the Green Bay players are practicing in Atlantic City. A number of fans from Green Bay saw the game in New York on Sunday when the Packers defeated the New York Giants and others are said to be coming here for the Turkey Day classic. Aside from George Halas and Dutch Sternaman of the Chicago Bears, and Mike Redelle of the Dayton Triangles, Coach Curley Lambeau is the oldest leader in point of service in the National league.
NOVEMBER 26 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Press-Gazette on Monday launched a campaign to raise $5,000 for the Green Bay Packers, leaders in the NFL race. The determination to raise the money, to be distributed among the players, came after the Packers' victory over the New York Giants on Sunday. The victory dispossessed New York from its tie for first place. In launching the campaign the newspaper viewed the football team as an asset to the city. The money will be raised among business interests.
Green Bay Packers (10-0) 20, New York Giants (8-2-1) 6
​Sunday November 24th 1929 (at New York)
1929 New York Giants
NOVEMBER 27 (Philadelphia) - Hopeful of taking another step towards the national professional football championship, the Green Bay Packer squad arrived here late this afternoon for the game with the Frankford Yellowjackets Thanksgiving day at Frankford field. The husky Badger squad, some 27 strong, came in from Atlantic City where they had been enjoying the sea breezes for a few days and incidentally polishing up several new offensive thrusts which they intend to spring on Bull Behman and his Hornet gridders, who according to reports are keyed to the highest pitch for the Green Bay game. According to Coach Lambeau, two injuries cropped out of his club as a result of the game with the Giants in New York and strange as it may seen both the ailing ones, Cal Hubbard and Bill Kern, are tackles. Hubbard has got a stitch in his right hip while Kern's left shoulder is "on the hummer" somewhat. The Packer leader expressed his doubts about either one of these players getting into the game...DICK, EDDIE, RED READY: However, it wasn't all gloom in the Green Bay camp because Dick O'Donnell, end; Eddie Kotal, halfback, and Red Dunn, quarterback, are just about fit for the fray and it is expected that all three of them will see action in the Turkey Day engagement. Several of the Quaker newspaper scribes were on hand to greet the Packers and they lost little time in congratulating Captain Lambeau about winning the championship, and this was his reply: "Thanks for all the nice things you have said but you are just about ten days too soon. We are not counting our chickens before they are hatched. We haven't cinched the pennant yet. We have three tough games ahead of us in about ten days and one defeat might change the complexion of everything. The Giants are only a game behind and that is too close for comfort, while the Yellowjackets are also very much in speaking distance as they have dropped but two engagements. In this pro football race, the teams are too evenly matched to take anything for granted." Whitey Woodin, who is a great lobbyist, has been making the rounds showing the recruits many points of interest. Several of the players took a dip in the hotel's salt water swimming pool but they didn't stay long because the taste was different than old Green Bay...DARTMOUTH TEAM ON HAND: The Dartmouth team, driven out of the mountains of New Hampshire by an early season blizzard, checked in at Atlantic City early Tuesday and the Big Green team used the same practice field as the Packers but at different hours. The collegians gave the Bays the once over Wednesday morning and the varsity players gazed with awe as the Packers went through their practice stunts. One of the Hanoverians was heard to remark: "Guess what that New York writer said about this Green Bay team was right," and this writer feigned blissful ignorance asked, "What?" The Dartmouth player with two stripes on his sweater said: "It was in the news that the Green Bay club could spot the best college team in the country three touchdowns and beat them in ten minute quarters. We thought this was all "blooey" for I never saw such passing and kicking in all my life. Look at that pass," but the writer didn't have the heart to listen anymore and he faded out of the picture. The Boardwalk Bulletin took a picture of the Packers again this season and it will be published in Friday's edition. The photographer was killing two birds with one stone because he took about two dozen orders for the yard long picture. About this time, some of them are already in the mails for Green Bay. The visit to Atlantic City was like a homecoming to Johnny Blood, who spent some time here last winter as master of ceremonies on a coal wagon. Blood is stepping along without wraps as he lost his hat and overcoat while making a hurried exit in Gotham. However, it takes more than clothes to worry the "spark plug" although the boys jockey him plenty by announcing that a cold wave and snow are en route.
NOVEMBER 27 (Atlantic City) - The pro game at Frankford Field, Pa., has kicked up a lot of interest here despite the fact that Penn and Cornell meet in their annual fracas at Franklin Field Turkey day. Of course most of the interest rests on the Green Bay team as the Jackets haven't been so hot this fall. Any team that has won ten games in a row is entitled to a lot of consideration from the fans who take the pro and college ball even up. The papers have carried a number of stories telling about how the Yellow Jackets are bolstering their battle front. It looks like an eleventh hour effort to put the skids under Green Bay's winning streak. Johnny Thompson, rated as one of the best guards ever turned out at Lafayette, has donned the Hornets' "monkey togs". He has been coaching all fall and this is his debut as a pro gridder. Earl Sechrist, a veteran on the post graduate gridiron, is another addition to Frankford, along with Ray Armen, who has been performing with Clifton Heights. Johnny Reopke, the Atlantic City ace who was a Yellow Jacket back in 1928, also is back again. Evidently Don Haines, Frankford manager, intends to make good the threat he made in Green Bay early in the season, saying that he would have about 40 players in uniform when the Packers visited Philadelphia on Nov. 28...RIDE IN WHEELCHAIRS: These addition to the Frankford club haven't thrown any scare into the "Golden Wave", as one of the Gotham scribes termed Lambeau and Co. "They can only use eleven at one time," was the remark of Jugger Earpe, who added that he didn't care if they had a million, just as long as Lew could still kick 'em a mile. The two day drill at Atlantic City did the team a lot of good as it took them away from the maddening throngs and gave them a chance to sniff the salty air off the ocean which is a pep producer and then some. Coach Lambeau put the club through two stiff morning drills and there was some boardwalk workouts in the afternoon. Several of the boys went for a ride in the wheelchairs much to the jeers of their companions who preferred to hoof the walk and do window shopping.
NOVEMBER 27 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Green Bay football fans today continued to send in contributions to the Packer "Championship Fund" and at 1:30 o'clock this afternoon more than one thousand dollars had been donated. The proposal to raise $5,000 for the Green Bay players as a token of appreciation for their great work this season was first
announced Monday, and not an hour was passed but
what someone came to the Press-Gazette office with a
contribution. It is expected that the fund will be reached
by the time the team returns home as the plan has met
with popular approval generally throughout the city, and
even outside of Green Bay. The first out-of-town man to
send in a contribution to the fund was Robert Meyer of
Algoma, Wis., who mailed his check for $1 to A.B.
Turnbull, treasurer of the fund. Mr. Meyer's letter follows:
"I have witnessed every home game of the Packers this
season and I think they are the greatest team in the
world. Enclosed you will find $1 to help the cause along.
I hope you make a million"...NORTHWEST
ENGINEERING SENDS $200: Another big contribution
was received today - that of the Northwest Engineering
works, which mailed in a check for $200 to Mr. Turnbull.
Paul Burke, general manager of the company, in
handing the check said: "The Northwest Engineering
works thinks the team is a great thing for the city and
we are only too happy to support any movement to 
show the players that Green Bay appreciates their
efforts." A letter from the Barkhausen Oil company, H.A.
Bearkhausen, president, with a check for $50,
expresses approval of the plan and says: "Please
accept our enclosed check for $50. It goes without
saying that the Packer Football club is one of Green
Bay's greatest assets. It has put the name of our city
upon the tongue of every football fan, especially pro, in
the entire country. We certainly are heartily in accord
with the present move of rewarding the boys for their
outstanding success." Persons desiring to contribute to
the "Championship" fund are urged to send in their
donations at once to A.B. Turnbull, treasurer, "Packer
Championship Fund", care of the Press-Gazette, Green
Bay, Wis. All contributions will be acknowledged 
through the Press-Gazette, a list of contributors being
published each day. No solicitations will be made; all
contributions must be voluntarily.
NOVEMBER 27 (Philadelphia Inquirer) - The Green Bay
Packers, undefeated leaders of the NFL, with ten
straight victories against no defeats, are confident of
retaining a clean slate tomorrow even after their big
Thanksgiving Day game here with the Frankford Yellowjackets at Frankford avenue and Devereaux street. The big Western eleven is resting at Atlantic City and using one of the local fields for workout purposes. The Packers have always placed well in the National League, but this season is their best so far. They always have placed well up in the first division and in 1927 finished second to the New York Giants. The team is owned by the Green Bay Football Corporation, in which a thousand citizens are stockholders. Prominent city officials and businessmen serve on the board of directors. Community spirit and pride has gone a long way toward putting the Packers where they are today in the professional football world. The Packers are known throughout the National League as the "pro" team with the college spirit and the reason for this is that Green Bay takes its Packers like Princeton does its Tigers. Some fourteen members of the squad are year-round residents of the Bay. The Packers' management tries to find steady employment for all of its players. Green Bay is one of the two teams to defeat the Jackets this year and while a defeat on Thursday will not drop the Westerners from first place, Coach Bull Behman and his charges are confident of victory. Frankford has won six and tied one in its last seven league starts and the big Northeast machine is functioning better than ever.
NOVEMBER 27 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Red Dunn, stellar Green Bay Packer quarterback, who has been on the shelf the past week with an injured shoulder, has decided to turn sportswriter while his injury is healing and he sits on the bench. Red's first contribution to journalism was turned in after the Giant-Packer game in New York Sunday. Here are Red's comments in the Wisconsin News of Milwaukee: "NEW YORK - Well I sat on the bench yesterday and saw our Packers hand the Giants the finest football lesson they could have. We won 20-6, which proves it. Every now and then I would look at Eddie Kotal and wink. You know, Eddie and I are nursing some splinters due to something that happened when those nasty Bears forgot to be gentlemen. However, I don;t think we could have done any better if we had been in there ourselves. Several times I looked at Capt. Lambeau wondering if he was going to shoot the works. But all he did was to give me a stony stare and not once did he say: 'Get out there and warm up.' My experience in football has been sixty minutes in the game, not on the bench. Bench duty is all right, but I'd rather be in there plunging away with the old apple. If all goes well me and Eddie should be able to do something either Thursday against the Yellow Jackets of Philadelphia or next Sunday in Providence. I have seen a lot of football in my time but never once have I ever glimpsed a team that clicked so well on every play as the Packers Sunday afternoon. From the comments I heard, I guess we made as much of a hit with the crowd as Earl Carroll's Follies did with us Packers who saw them Saturday night. The Packers played football as they did only once before this year. That was against the Bears in Green Bay. After the first touchdown we had the Giants stopped. They were outsmarted, outrushed and outtackled. Lewellen kicked like only he can while Play Boy Johnny Blood more than lived up to all the ink Milwaukee writers have been giving him. After the ball game I got a cramp in my arm opening telegrams. It seemed that everyone in Green Bay, Milwaukee, Duck Creek and Big Suamico was shooting congratulations our way. I am beginning to think its the old pep back home that's doing a lot to put us where we are."
NOVEMBER 27 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Because of the East-West High school game here tomorrow, there will be no gridgraph presentation of the Packer-Frankford game. Fans will have an opportunity of hearing a broadcast of the game, however, a broadcast over radio station WTMJ, Milwaukee, will be made. The broadcast will not only be available to fans at home, but will be given to those who journey to the City stadium to see the East and West high teams in action. By a special arrangement, the Platten Radio company will re-broadcast the WTMJ report over the Vita-Vox system at the City stadium. As the Packer game starts at 1 p.m., fans will be treated to one hour broadcasting of the Eastern contest before the East-West game gets underway. After the start of the East-West game, the Vita-Vox system will be used to give a running account of the City Stadium tilt. The highlights of the game in the east will be broadcast from time to time during the high school game and at the half a summary will be given. The final score also will be announced as soon as it is received. The Vita-Vox presentation will be made through the courtesy of Joannes Brothers, wholesale grocers, Green Bay.
NOVEMBER 27 (New York) - The Green Bay Packers are the class of the professional football world, New York sports writers agreed universally Monday, following the Green Bay team's decisive 20 to 6 defeat of the New York Giants here Sunday. One writer calls it the greatest football team in the world today. Comment follows:
Ken Smith (New York Graphic) - The Packers fight like inspired collegians, play with the same dash and show in their smooth work in intricate plays that they practice like collegians. The big point of difference is that they are all stars - everyone of them, not just a few. The whole blamed team is an All-American eleven, to my mind the greatest football team in the world today. Those Packers pulled some plays against the Giants that would have amazed that great crowd that saw Harvard beat Yale Saturday. Fresh from Cambridge, this correspondent couldn't help but imagine Green Bay trucking through either Harvard or Yale at will.
Red Rennie (Herald Tribune) - Until Sunday it was inconceivable that any football team in the country could defeat the Giants three touchdowns to one; they have such a powerful team. It was the outstanding game of the professional football season...Its equivalent in college football would be a game between Notre Dame and Pittsburgh. But the Packers could take either or both of those teams, given them three touchdowns and the extra points and beat them without even working up a sweat. With Verne Lewellen, formerly of Nebraska; Johnny Blood of Michigan and Mac McCrary of Georgia, for its backfield and a line averaging 200 pounds and fast, with Tom Nash, All-American end from Georgia at one end and Lavvie Dilweg, of Marquette, at the other, the Packers present a football team which is a football team in every sense of the word. 
Arthur Daley (Times) - The hard running, hard fighting Green Bay Packers punctured the bubbles of the Giants invincibility Sunday by tramping roughshod over the hitherto unbeaten New Yorkers. The Packers had weapons that the local outfit could not march. They had a magnificent kicker in Lewellen whose zooming 60 and 70 yard punts with a wet, sodden ball ever kept the Wisconsin eleven in scoring territory, they had a line of 200-pounders, a line that outcharged and outrushed the highly touted New York forwards; they had a fast, deceptive attack with a set of backs running viciously from well screened formations behind wall-like interference.
New York Telegram - On a field which was sticky from an all-day rain and despite numbed hands and a mud soaked ball, Lewellen passed, kicked and ran Andy Andrew's squad of huskies ragged. They have been calling the local team husky, but hereafter that will have to be reserved for the exclusive use of the Packers. The Giants forwards looked like pygmies against the Wisconsin team and were not able to do any better than the comparative size would indicate. That helped account for Lewellen's success and the first setback the local team had suffered this season.
Evening World - Verne Lewellen, who happens to be district attorney of Brown County, Wisconsin, was a potent factor in the Packers' stunning triumph. Punts of 60 and 70 yards that spiraled from Lewellen's shoe gave the visitors a decisive edge, of which their forward wall, averaging about 200 pounds a man, and splendid backs made the utmost use of. For once the crafty Friedman met his match. Back of the Packer line was battering Bo Molenda, who was fullback on the great University of Michigan elevens of which Benny was quarterback a few years ago, and Benny had a few weapons in his armory which Bo didn't know. Molenda, aided by forwards who ripped the Giants line to shreds, ploughed through for gains that took the heart out of the New Yorkers.
veterans. The halfbacks, John Blood, of Minnesota, and
Verne Lewellen, of Nebraska, played pro football four
and six years respectively, while Bo Molenda, of
Michigan, has been playing three years. 
NOVEMBER 28 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Although
New York fans were strong for Benny Friedman and his
mates Sunday, they also were loud in praise and
applause for the Packers, according to C.I. Atkinson,
who returned to Green Bay yesterday after spending the
weekend in New York on business and in seeing the
Packer-Giant game. Fans were highly pleased with the
kind of football played by the Packers, Mr. Atkinson 
said, and when they came back on the field after the
half, they received a reception equal to that given to the
Giants. Most of them appreciated smart football and
were quick to applaud when Green Bay players featured
in plays. "The Green Bay team caught the fancy of the
crowd soon after the game started," he said, "and it was
not long before they began to realize that the Giants
had a real battle on their hands. After the score in the 
first quarter, they were convinced that that the Giants
not only had a battle on their hands, but were due to be
beaten. Everywhere could be heard loud words of
enthusiasm over the playing of Green Bay, rather than a
note of disgust in the home team because it was 
getting a trimming, as is often the case in New York.
Very few fans found fault with the Giants because of the
reversal, as they realized that Green Bay had a team on
the field that was superior in every branch of play. They
realized that the Giants had a fine team, but that the
Packers had one that was still better."
NOVEMBER 28 (Philadelphia) - The going should be 
good at Frankford field this afternoon when the Green
Bay Packers and Frankford Yellow Jackets lock horns
in a football encounter that will just about decide the
possession of the National league pennant for 1929, as
the sun came up on a clear cold day. Ideal for football
this morning. The Yellow Jacket management has made
arrangements to handle the largest crowd of the season
but climatic conditions are quite likely to keep many of
the warm weather football fans at home, despite the fact
that they have the opportunity to view what the New
York sport scribes claim is the greatest eleven in 
football history. Bill Kern, Pittsburgh tackle, probably 
the best newcomer to make his debut in professional
ranks this fall, won't perform for the Packers. His injured
shoulder is full of jinks and Dr. Kelly ordered him to rest
up until Sunday at least. Cal Hubbard may get in the
game but he won't start as there isn't much "hurrah" 
about his hip yet although it is coming along nicely.
Perry and Ashmore will be in as tackled when the 
whistle blows but it is not likely that Coach Lambeau
will change his other "iron men" who have been ticking
like a 17-jewel watch in their last few starts...DUNN IS
READY: Red Dunn is ready. So is Eddie Kotal and Dick
O'Donnell. They probably will be used as the Providence
game comes close on the heels of the Frankford fray
and Coach Lambeau doesn't want any of his players
fagged out as the result of too much football. In the
eyes of the league president, Joe F. Carr, Columbus,
this game is the most important of the turkey day
docket so he has assigned Jim Durfee, his refereeing
ace, to the combat along with Art Crowley, one of the
leading umpires in the east, and Paul Menton of
Baltimore, who worked in the Bay-Giant game last
Sunday. The Packers won't be without friends at the
game as there will be a handful of Green Bay loyalists
present. Among those in the Adelphia hotel this
morning were Harry Golden and his wife, Bill Schwartz,
Bob Quigley, Vince Engels and Pat Gannon of the
Milwaukee Journal, New York bureau, who will file the
wire for the WTMJ broadcast...EXPECT REAL BATTLE:
The Adelphia hotel where the Packers headquartered, is
also the stopping place for Cornell and the lobby was
filled with "rah rah" boys and girls from Wednesday
afternoon on. It made things more interesting all around
and a number of the boys were busier than the lobbyists
in Washington. The Packers know they have a battle on
their hands with the Yellow Jackets and they have been
tending strictly to their "knitting". Bull Behman's crew
is keyed to a high pitch and there is no question but
that it will be as tough a game as the Bays have played
all season. At the breakfast just before the battle,
Coach Lambeau told the team of the fund being raised
at home for the team and the players nearly raised the
roof with their cheers. Several of the "Scotchmen" were
so hoarse that they couldn't even ask for another glass
of water. The Packer management has received several
offers of postgraduate games but no decision of any
kind will be made until the pennant is sewed up and
tucked away in one of Bud Jorgenson's property trunks.
If the Packers win the championship, it is possible that
a one game southern trip into Tennessee may be arranged but the management is thinking of nothing else but the championship at the present time.
NOVEMBER 25 (New York) - Among the rooters for the Giants this afternoon was Alfred Emmanuel Smith, one time candidate for the presidency on a platform exceedingly popular in Green Bay. Among the rooters for the Packers was G.W. Calhoun, who has never stood for public office, but who has achieved distinction in more than one way this afternoon. The greatest moment in his not uncelebrated career came at 4:30 p.m., when the referee's whistle sounded the end of the Packer-Giant football game, and it was written that the Packers won, "We are proud of our Packers," said Cal. "Who is?" asked the most eminent rooter for the New York Giants, and Mr. Calhoun met Mr. Smith. "We are," said Mr. Calhoun. "We are proud of our Packers and we love Al Smith." After which the Giants' most eminent rooter did the gracious thing. "Shae," he said. "You have a splendid football club. I am proud of the Packers."
NOVEMBER 26 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Green Bay Packers have received several offers to play exhibition football games in the East and Middle West since their great victory over Benny Friedman's New York Giants last Sunday, according to a telegram received here this afternoon from Captain Curly Lambeau at Atlantic City, N.J. The message did not indicate whether any of the offers had been accepted.
NOVEMBER 27 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The
Packer "Championship fund" continued to grow today
and at noon $1,145.00 had been contributed by Green
Bay fans. Not very much was expected today because
of the holidays, but $70 came in in cash and checks.
The largest contributor today was the Thomas Produce
company, which mailed its check for $50. Captain
Lambeau at breakfast in Philadelphia this morning told
the players of the efforts of Green Bay citizens to raise
a $5,000 fund for them as a reward of their excellent
playing this year, and the news was greeted with cheers
and a promise to "mop up" with the Frankford Yellow
Jackets this afternoon. If the fund is raised the money
will be given to the players upon their return from the
East. Not many more days remain so Packer fans who
contemplate contributing are urged to send in their
donations at once. A.L. Thomas of the Thomas Produce
company is another Packer fan that thinks the fund
proposal is a splendid one. In a letter in which he
enclosed a donation for the players, he said: "We are
indeed pleased that you saw fit to sponsor the Packer
Fund and we quite agree with you it is a worthy cause.
We hope sincerely you will be successful in obtaining
subscription for the amount set out for, namely $5,000.
It is a small amount compared to what those boys have
done for Green Bay. They are no doubt one of the 
biggest assets that Green Bay could have and therefore
the people should have that in mind and come across
liberally. Trust our subscription will meet with your
NOVEMBER 28 (Green Bay) - Eddie Kotal, halfback,
and Red Dunn, quarterback on the Packer football team
may seem action in Thursday's game, according to
dispatches from Atlantic City where the Bay eleven
rested before invading Philadelphia last night. Both
Kotal and Dunn injured a shoulder two weeks ago
playing against the Chicago Bears at Chicago, and have
not seen action since. They did, however, work out with
the Packers after Sunday's victory over the New York
Giants and now are ready to go.
NOVEMBER 28 (Philadelphia Inquirer) - Frankford's
football team, fans and entire community is all het up
over the most important game of pro football played
within its confines in years. The Green Bay Packers, 
unbeaten leaders of the National League, are due here this morning to meet the Hornets and the game promises to not only attract the season's record throng, but promises to be one of the best. The Westerners have been in Atlantic City since Sunday night going there direct from New York after they had defeated the Giants and dropped Tim Mara's crew from a tie for the leadership. Frankford has been drilling hard for the game and Manager Bob Haines and his players, led by Coach Bull Behman, are confident of being the first team to tie or defeat Green Bay in eleven games. The Hornets will battle to the last ditch in their efforts to capture the league bunting and feel sure they will defeat the leaders this afternoon and also conquer the Chicago Bears when they meet again in the Windy City on Sunday. The visitors have a powerful aggregation that has been the Turkey Day attraction here for years. They have a magnificent kicker in Verne Lewellen, who can kick consistently sixty or seventy yards. The visitors have a powerful line and one that far outweighs the Jackets. They have right across, Dilweg, 202; Kern, 187; Michalske, 209; Earpe, 245; Bowdoin, 220; Hubbard, 250; Nash, 210, a total of 1,523 pounds or an average of 218 pounds per man or nearly ten pounds to the man heavier than the New York Giants. Green Bay will start at quarterback, Hurdis McCrary of Georgia, playing his first year in pro football, but the other backfield players are all
