GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - Fumbles, the nemesis of every football player, camped on the trail of the Green Bay Packers here Sunday afternoon when they faced the Chicago Cardinals, and until the final whistle blew on a score of 9 to 2 in the Packers' favor, it was anybody's game. Fumbles at crucial moments, with scarcely more than feet to go for a touchdown, put the players, as well as some six thousand fans, on edge from the beginning of the game until the end. And, strangely enough, that turn of fate called fumble met the Packers' star halfback at almost every turn. But Lewellen, like Sampson of old, broke the chains of the jinx and brought in the single touchdown that was marked on the boards for the afternoon's work. The score came in the final quarter and was gratefully added to the three points made in the third period by the ever-reliable toe of Red Dunn...LEW OVERCOMES NEMESIS: If Lew had not been great enough to overcome the nemesis, there might be a different story of the game. Twice he was called on to carry the ball over the line, and twice he fumbled and the Packers missed chances to score. But he came back like the veteran he is, and more than made up for the misplays. Early in the first quarter the Cardinals scored a safety and by completely outplaying the Packers the rest of the half had everyone worried about the outcome. The Packers were on the defense in their own territory continually. In the first period, the Packers looked little like the great team that turned back the Chicago Bears just a week ago.
Their fine play was ragged and very few attacks were
launched smoothly and effectively.
PLAY IS RAGGED
There seemed to be a general letdown in the play. It
was the kind of an "off" day that often follows a game
like the one played against the Bears. Backfield men
failed to perform their duties, linemen did not change,
and when they did charge, they were offside and in
general the play on the part of the Packers was poor.
The Cardinals, on the other hand, played great ball,
constantly charging through the Packer front wall for
long gains and doing the bulk of the work on the offense.
Alertness in following the ball also helped and prevented
a touchdown when Lew fumbled on the goal line. Gene
Rose, former University of Wisconsin fullback, and
Mickey McDonald did the bulk of the backfield work for
the Cardinals in the early periods. They plowed through
for four first downs in the opening quarter, and it it had
not been for a bad pass from center deep in Packer
territory, might have pushed through for a score. Elkins
tried a placekick from the 23-yard line in the intiial
period, but the ball went wide of the posts. On the first
play after the kick, Blood was back to punt from his
own 20-yard line. The ball from center went wild
however and got away from Blood, traveling behind the
goal line. Blood raced after it but before he could bring it
back into the field of play he was downed and the Cards
had two points.
SCORE LOOKS BIG
The score looked unusually big the rest of the half, as
the Cardinals continued to play fine ball. It looked still
more impressive soon after the start of the second 
period when the Packers lost a chance to score on 
Lew's first fumble. A pass, Lewellen to Kotal, brought
the ball to the Cardinal 23-yard line. Molenda picked up
three yards and another pass, Dunn to Dilweg, brought
the ball to the 10-yard line. Lewellen picked up five
more yards at tackle and Molenda made three at left
guard. Lew again tried a thrust at the line, but fumbled
on the one-yard line, the Cardinals recovering and 
kicking out of danger. The Packers started work in
earnest in the third period and began smashing up
Cardinal plays before they could get started. The 
offense also showed considerable improvement and the
Bay backs kept hammering away at the Cardinal line
for gains. The work of the entire backfield, composed of
Dunn, Lewellen, Kotal and McCrary at that time, was
impressive while linemen worked like trojans to help the
cause. Earpe, Ashmore, Perry and Michalske were
outstanding linemen, opening holes and doing fine work
on the defense. Dilweg and Nash did excellent work at
ends.
DUNN KICKS GOAL
After pushing the Cardinals back against their own goal
posts, following an exchange of punts, the Packers 
took the ball on the Cardinal 35-yard line. A pass, Kotal
to Lewellen, advanced the ball six yards and Lew
followed with a pair of smashes that brought the ball six
years nearer the line. Lew again got off to a fine run,
smashing his way over tackle for a seven-yard gain and
McCrary made it first down on the Cardinal 15-yard line.
Kotal and Lew brought the ball to the five-yard line on
another pair of line plays and on the third play, Dunn
dropped back to the 15-yard line, and kicked a
placement between the posts, giving the Packers a 3 to
2 advantage. It was a beautiful kick and sent the crowd
into a frenzy of cheering. A few minutes before the end
of the period, Dunn passed to Nash bring the ball to the
Cardinal 20-yard line. The first play of the fourth period
found McCrary smashing his way over center for an 18-
yard gain, putting the ball on the 2-yard line. Lew found
center for a yard and then tried it again, but fumbled, the
Cardinals recovering behind the goal for a touchback.
Just before the play was started, the Cardinal manager
sent a substitute out on the field. He failed to arrive at
the scene of action before the play was completed, and
the Packers rightfully claimed the Cardinals had 12 men
on the field at the time of the play which would entitle
them to the play being brought back and the Cards
penalized half the distance to the goal  line. The referee
did not agree with the Packers however
and that was that.
LEW GOES OVER
Soon after the play Lew again showed what he could do
when he tore through the center of the line, shaking off
several tacklers for a 22 yard gain. Lidberg went in for
McCrary and on the first play smashed through the
center for 12 yards. Two more successful passes with
Dilweg on the receiving end netted another ten yards
and the Cards took time out in the hopes of stopping
the onward march. Lew hit the center at the line and
kept on going on the next play to bring the ball to the 
four yard line. Lidberg picked up a yard and Lew added
another pair bringing the ball inches from the goal line.
Lew again hit the line, pivoting off tackle and far across
the goal for the only touchdown. Dunn's kick for the
extra point was low. After that the Cardinals tried a
desperate passing attack deep in their own territory,
Lavvie Dilweg loomed up, however, and intercepted a
Cardinal pass with a great catch and the Packers
played a plunging game the remaining minute of play.

NEWS AND NOTES
SIDELIGHTS
OCTOBER 8 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - "It was just a little misunderstanding, it wasn't a fight," said Jug Earpe, when asked about what appeared to be a fistic encounter with Williams, Cardinal tackle. Williams had been throwing his feet about too wildly to suit Jug's style of playing and after seeing Williams' feet connect with several Packer anatomies, he ambled over to him to "straighten out". Williams was on the defensive immediately. Jugger's finger raised in a warning shake, was mistaken for an intended blow and Williams swung out his fist. Jug grabbed both arms and forced him to the ground. Then to teach him a little etiquette, he shook him...just a little. Williams got the injury to his face in the preceding play and not in the argument with Earpe...Duke Slater, the Cardinals' negro tackle, played every minute of the game. Slater is regarded by other players as "as white inside as he is black outside"...If the Packers had lost the fracas yesterday, it would be bad taste to mention "breaks". But if there is any variety of that brand of luck that doesn't smile at the Cardinals, it hasn't made its appearance on the Packer field..."It's all right, Lew" was the unanimous cry of the fans when the Brown County district attorney left the oval slip from his grasp in the shadow of the goal post. But to Lew, it was the supreme humiliation...Packer fans will be well acquainted with the National Anthem when the football season ends. The American Legion band played the Star Spangled Banner after the teams had assembled on the field. It is particularly fitting that the tune of America should be played on an occasion such as only an American audience should sponsor..."A rose by any name would be as sweet" goes an old adage, but a player on the Cardinal team by the name of Rose was about as sweet as football players are made...Fans were dressed for rain, but before the afternoon was well underway the sun was shining brightly and the Packer management chalked down another perfect day for attendance...And speaking of weather. There was a time when we went to the Packer games wrapped in everything left from the winter before, plus galoshes, automobile robes and mittens. And brushed wet snow from the peaks of caps to keep from blinding our vision. How times have changed!...Dr. David Jones, new owner of the Cardinals, sat on the players' bench the entire game. He appeared to enjoy the game like a schoolboy, cheering lustily for every good play. When Mickey McDonald intercepted a Packer pass and tore down the field to the Packers' 26-yard line where he was stopped, Dr. Jones was on his feet and waving his hat in a frenzy of excitement...The Chicago doctor has done a good job of rebuilding the Cardinal team. The squad looked mighty impressive against the Packers and is sure to win a lot of games. Kiesling, Kassel, McDonald and Rose looked particularly great...When Ernie Nevers joins the team next week, it is going to take a tough outfit to stop the Chicagoans. Nevers is due to report tomorrow. He left the coast where he was playing baseball Sunday....Around 6 o'clock last evening, the telephone in Hoyler's Tea Room, Escanaba, kept up an insistent ringing, according to a Green Bay man who was having lunch there. "Howler's Tea Room...No, we haven't the Packer score yet," was the attendant's unvarying response. Then someone who had heard the result, supposedly over a railroad wire, announced that the Packers had won. The crowd in the tea room received this with enthusiasm, and the response to the "phone announcements" indicated similar enthusiasm among those calling. There must have been a dozen calls while the Green Bay man was having his lunch, he declared.
FRANKFORD, PACKERS TO BATTLE FOR LEAD
OCTOBER 8 (Columbus, OH) - One of those so-called
football "naturals" will be staged at Green Bay this
Sunday between the Packers and Frankford Yellow
Jackets of Philadelphia. Little did the schedule makers
at the July convention in Atlantic City know when they
arranged this game for Green Bay that it would be a first
place battle. The two clubs each have won three league
games without having their slate marred. The Yellow
Jackets and Packers are the only teams in the league
to have triple victories to their credit. This will be the
first big intersectional game of the season. Eastern
football dopesters figure that the Yellowjackets have the
material for a championship team but the experts are
worrying a lot about their chances in the Packer game
as they figure it is a bit too early for the Hornets to be
functioning the way they should offensively. Reports
received here at President Carr's office from Wisconsin
state that Wisconsin has gone "wild" over the Packers
this gall. The victories over both Chicago teams boosted
Green Bay's pro football stock sky high. On paper, the
Packers look like one of the strongest teams in the
circuit, and so far this season Captain Lambeau's outfit
has performed in a way that entitles it to championship
consideration. In view of the importance of the
intersectional game, it is quite possible that President
Carr may be in Green Bay Sunday.
TICKETS SELLING FAST
OCTOBER 8 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Tickets are
selling fast for the Philadelphia game. There is but a
handful of reservations left in the big stands and orders
are now being filled with reserved bleacher and the
bench seats. Every seat in the City Stadium will be
reserved for the Philadelphia contest. The layout will be
the same as used for the record breaking crowd at the
argument with the Chicago Bears. Officials of the
Football Corporation believe the Jacket fracas will draw
just as big as the Bears did. The advance at this stage
of the week is even heavier than it was before the Bears
played here. E.A. Spachmann, director of ticket sales
for the Football Corporation, issued this warning to prospective customers: "Any reservations not called for at the usual places about town will be picked up Thursday evening and returned to the Football Corporation office in the Press-Gazette building. These tickets will be held for another 24 hours and then placed on open sale Friday night at 9 p.m. Orders from out of town should be accompanied by money order or check. If it is impossible to fill the request with grandstand seats, the Football Corporation will forward the $1.00 bleacher reserved and a refund will follow later." The ticket office in the Press-Gazette is open every day and in the evenings this week.
BAY MANAGEMENT RESERVES EVERY SEAT FOR SUNDAY
OCTOBER 9 (Green Bay) - Business is booming around the Packer ticket office as the fans eagerly stand in line waiting their chance to purchase pasteboards for
the NFL game here Sunday between Green Bay and
the Frankford Yellowjackets of Philadelphia. This is the
only home intersectional game on the Packers' card.
The management wishes to correct one rumor that is in
circulation about a complete sellout. This is not true.
The seats in the big stands have been cleaned out but
there is still available many of the bleacher reserved
seats. Every seat in the park, grandstand, park benches
and bleachers, is being reserved. The City Staidum with
its enlarged seating capacity can seat more than 9,600
spectators and take care of 2,500 more in standing
room. According to Director of Ticket Sales Spachmann
there are at least 1,500 seats still to be sold. Bench
seats at the east and west ends of the field were placed
on sale at the Packer ticket office this morning. Every
uncalled for reservation will be picked up Thursday
evening and placed in sale 24 hours later, Spachmann
said. In the meantime the Packers are going through
their daily workouts in preparation for the intersectional
encounter with the Easterners. Captain Lambeau is
whipping the team at a good pace and from the looks of
things, they should be "on" again Sunday. Don Hill,
California halfback, has been released to the Chicago
Cardinals. Don looked pretty good in his starts here but
Lambeau had to shave his squad to conform with the
league rules, which provide that no more than eighteen
men be in uniform on the  bench after the third game of
the season.
ENROUTE TONIGHT
OCTOBER 9 (Philadelphia) - The Frankford Yellow
Jackets, Philadelphia's hopes in the NFL, leave here
this evening over the Pennsylvania railroad for Green
Bay, where on Sunday they will clash with the Packers
in a game that may go a long way towards deciding
possession of the 1929 bunting. The Jackets are
making the trip in a private car. There are 30 in the
party including the players, trainers and executives of
the Frankford Athletic Association. The squad is
scheduled to reach Green Bay on Friday and will
headquarter at the Northland Hotel. Frankford and the
Packers are tied for first place in the National League
race. Each team has won three games and are well out
in front in number of games played so that their
leadership will not be threatened for some time to come.
The winner Sunday will take first place and will therefore
become a mark for all the other teams to shoot for. If the Packers win they will have registered defeats to Dayton, the Chicago Bears, the Chicago Cardinals and the Yellowjackets. If the Jackets win the contest they will have defeated Buffalo twice and Dayton and the Packers. By inference their defeat of the Packers will give them superiority over the Bears and Cards of Chicago. Either way the battle between the Jackets and the Packers is a prize worth striving for and the Jackets are going to the fray in the best possible condition considering the long trip to the Wisconsin city. New timber that has been built into the Jackets' machine this season includes such men as Maglisceau, Geneva tackle, who saw action in Green Bay this season with Portsmouth; Barna, former All-American end with Hobart; Halachi, former star halfback at Bucknell; James, center, who starred with Nebraska. Among the old timers who played with the Jackets in Green Bay a year ago are Diehl, former Bucknell fullback; Mercer of Simpson and Rogers of Pennsylvania; Filak, Penn State tackle; Kostos, Schuykill, end; Homan, Lebanon Valley, quarter; Comstock of Georgetown fame, and Maxwell, Rockne trained end from Notre Dame. The material is here for a championship team and their hopes are no loss high that those of the Packers. The game Sunday is their first big hurdle on the way to the championship and they are going to Green Bay to win.
Green Bay Packers (3-0) 9, Chicago Cardinals (1-1) 2
​Sunday October 6th 1929 (at Green Bay)
finding themselves last week, but they managed to do it in time to set back the Cardinals, and they are going to start where they left off last Sunday. They all are in the best of shape."...PACKERS HAVE EDGE: The Yellowjackets have a decided edge on the Packers in victories, as they have taken four of five games played between the two teams since 1925. The Packers won one game, in 1927, by a score of 17 to 9. Last year, Frankford gave the Packers a 19 to 9 drubbing here and won by a 2 to 0 score in a game played in the East. In the tilt here, Frankford showed one of the greatest lines in the country. It held the Packers to three first downs the entire game. The backfield men also did some great work plunging through the Packer front wall and throwing a lot of passes...GOOD GAME EXPECTED: Diehl and Wilson, a pair of backs who were outstanding in the game against the Bays here last year, are back with the squad this season. "Two-Bits" Homan, the smallest player in pro football, "Wild Bill" Kelly, Rogers, Mercer and Oehlrich are other veteran backfield men who are with the team. All of them are dangerous and the Packers will have to be on their toes to stop them. The game is certain to be one of the best in years, as both clubs have great teams this year and are out to hold a grip on the league lead. The team that wins is certain to be regarded as the one having the best chance for a title this season...SOME SEATS LEFT: With another day remaining before the Philadelphia-Packer combat at City stadium, the ticket office in The Press-Gazette building reports that advance sales are indicative of a crowd that will come closer to approaching that at the Bear game than any this season. A number of desirable seats were still available today, but the sale was rapid and it was suggested that those desiring good locations in the bleachers Sunday afternoon place their orders immediately. The Jacket squad arrived in Chicago about noon today and got rid of their travel legs by working out at one of the private school grounds in the Windy City. According to the schedule, the Frankford club will leave Chicago Saturday morning over the Northwestern, arriving here Saturday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. The easterners will stay at the Northland hotel while in the city. The team left Philadelphia last night.
8 P.M. DEADLINE
OCTOBER 11 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - All uncalled for reservations to the Packer-Frankford Yellowjacket game on Sunday will be sold at the football office in The Press-Gazette building this evening. The deadline is 8 p.m. Then it will be first come-first serve. The tickets were picked up Thursday evening around town and, unless they are claimed today, will be put on open sale this evening. 
"BON MOT" - HE KNOWS HIS "VEGETABLES" IN PACKER TICKET SALE
OCTOBER 11 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - It was a cool gray morning in the Packer ticket office. A month of trying to satisfy thousands of customers, all of whom wanted seats on the 50-yard line - about "half way up" was getting on the nerves of everybody and the crew wasn't saying a word as they went about their business filling the mail orders with the bleacher reserved seats, the best way they could. All of sudden a bright young thing blew in the door and asked: "What tickets have you got?" Walter (Murphy) Mott, generalissimo in the ticket department, replied with a smile: "We're selling them in A and P today." (He meant sections, of course). "Oh, is that so, when did the grocery store start handling tickets. I will go right down there and get them with my other vegetables." This was her parting remark and she dashed around the corner. The dignified Mr. Mott is still gasping for breath.
MANY TICKETS LEFT
OCTOBER 12 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The last minute rush for Packer-Frankford tickets hasn't been as heavy as expected by Football corporation officials and, as a result, there are still about 1,000 bleacher and bench seats available for Sunday's game. The Packer ticket office at The Press-Gazette building will be open this evening from 7 to 10 p.m., and Sunday morning from 9 a.m. until noon to take care of customers.
FRANKFORD, PACKERS CLASH HERE
OCTOBER 12 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - What is
expected to be the hardest game of the year for the 
Green Bay Packers will take place at the City stadium
here tomorrow when they go up against the Frankford
Yellowjackets of Philadelphia. The kickoff will be at 2 p.
m. The game will be the only intersectional tilt of the
year to be played at the local stadium and is expected
to draw a crowd of fans that will equal that of the Bear-
Packer game here two weeks ago. Every seat in the
park has been reserved. The seating capacity will take
care of more than 9,000 fans and standing room has 
been provided for approximately 2,00 other spectators.
The Jackets come here with a team of veteran 
professional players. Nearly all of the players were all-
American stars in their college days and have been
even more impressive in the post-graduate game. The
teams has nearly all of its players that helped put the
Jackets in second place in the National league last year
and has added a few young men to round out the squad.
..LINE IS STRONG: The Frankford line is exceptionally
strong, and as the Packer front wall is equally powerful,
the game is expected to develop into a punting and
passing duel. Rogers, Mercer and Oehlrich of the
Frankford team are triple threat men and probably will
figure most prominently in the Easterners' passing
offense. Wild Bill Kelly, Homan, Wilson also are likely
to bear a lot of the offensive burden. Capt. Lambeau has
not announced his plans for the game but it is likely
that he will use most of his veterans in the backfield.
The combination of Dunn, Lewellen, Kotal and Molenda
looked particularly impressive last week and probably
will get most of the work. Blood, McCrary and Evans
also are scheduled to see some action...KOSTOS
BROTHERS ON END: On the line, the Kostos brothers
are slated as starters for Frankford's ends. Bull Behman,
captain of the team, is sure to work at tackle job at
least part of the time. He is a veteran professional
player. Filak, a veteran of three years with Frankford, is
slated for the other tackle job. He also works at guard
and may be shifted to that position for a time. Hansen
and Comstock are a pair of center flankers who also
have been playing the professional game for a number
of year. Both guards weigh around the 200 mark and are
a hard pair to get through. James, a 195 pound center
and guard, also will be used. He is a former Nebraska
star. Mahoney, Penn State star, will be at the pivot
position at least part of the game. Dilweg, Nash and
O'Donnell are slated for a lot of action on the Packer
ends. Hubbard was shifted to a tackle in practice this
week and may be seen at that position tomorrow. Kern,
Ashmore and Perry also are slated for tackle.
Michalske, who has earned a steady position by his
impressive work at guard, will flank the center of the line
with Bowdoin or Woodin at the other post. Earpe and
Darling are scheduled to alternate at center. Frankford has beaten the Packers in four of the five games players. The Eastern team whipped the Bays, 19 to 9, in a game played here last year and won by a 2 to 0 score in the tilt in the East. The first game was played in 1925 and the Bays were at the short end of a 13 to 7 count. Jim Crowley was in the Packer lineup in that game. The Packers were nosed out 19 to 14 in 1926. The lone Packer victory came in 1927 when Lewellen, Dilweg and Red Dunn figured prominently in the verdict. A collection will be taken up during the game to help pay the expenses of taking the American Legion band to Chicago for the games with the Bears. The band has donated its services for several years and the club officials hope fans respond in a liberal way so that the musicians will be on hand at the Cubs park.
PRO GRID NOTES
OCTOBER 12 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The percentage table is due for a shake up over Sunday as several of the clubs with unmarred records are billed to lock horns with each other. Some of the tailenders mix and somebody should break into the win column...Duke Slater, veteran tackle of the Chicago Cardinals, was admitted to the Illinois bar on Thursday. Slater plans to practice in Chicago where he has a big following. He will still continue to play football, however...This is "home-going" week in the National league as all of the clubs must cut their squads to eighteen players. This makes it pretty tough picking for a number of clubs who have been carrying along a young army...The Frankford Yellowjackets put across a hurricane finish to take the invading Buffalo team into camp last Saturday, 19 to 0. When the fourth quarter started, the game was scoreless, but the Hornets then produced three touchdowns...Paddy Driscoll's educated toe spelled victory for the Chicago Bears over the Minneapolis Redjackets, 7 to 6. After Senn recovered a fumble by Mollie Nydahl for a touchdown, the venerable Paddy added the extra point...The sport scribes covering the Providence-New York game must have had a fine time at the family party as there were three Wilsons, two Owens and a pair of Cronins performing in the gridiron fracas at the Cycledrome...The 7-0 defeat suffered by the Steamrollers at the hands of the Giants sort of surprised the post-graduate football forecasters who figured that Jimmy Conzelman's team had considerable edge on Benny Friedman's tribe...Dick Rauch and his gridders from Boston returned home on the short end of a 7-0 score after the conflict in Orange. These Skeeters look to be getting somewhere in the flag hunt as the week before they tied the Giants...Stapleton made its debut in the National league by taking picks on the Dayton aggregation, 12 to 0. The Islanders breezed through to an easy victory without having to resort to many of their intricate formations...Although Buffalo has dropped three games in a row, Coach Jolly has hopes of making things mighty interesting for the Chicago Bears Sunday. The Bisons have a number of promising youngsters who are coming along fast...Two clubs with clean slates will mix at Providence where the Steamrollers will be hosts to Orange. It is a good bet that the Rollers will be on their toes as two defeats in succession wouldn't set well on their followers...All Staten Island will be at the Polo Grounds Sunday when Stapleton has it out with the New York Giants. For several years these clubs have been bitter enemies but this is the first time they have battled in a league mix...Two of the greatest fullbacks in the country will be on the opposite sides of the fence when Minneapolis and the Cardinals have it out in Gophertown. Nevers will be with the Chicagoans while Joesting is the Redjacket ace...Attendance reports filed with President Joe F. Carr show that business is better than ever at the pro league games this fall. Although the season has hardly started, several 12,000 plus crowds have already been paid in...Gene Rose, former Wisconsin ace, is showing lots of class with the Chicago Cardinals. Due to the injury to Cobb Rooney, Rose has been working at quarterback with such success that he may be kept there permanently.
JACKETS ARE ONE OF THE STRONGEST TEAMS IN PRO LOOP
OCTOBER 12 (Green Bay) - The Philadelphia Yellowjackets have been accepted by the fans in this section of the state as foemen worthy of the steel of the Green Bay Packers. This tribute to the Jackets is not lightly given, the fans are paying their compliments to the visiting footballers with dollars and cents at the box office. No such respected homage has ever been given any other team of professionals with the single exception of the Chicago Bears. With the first real football weather of the season, there is every indication that the Packers will meet the Jackets in their fourth NFL contest before a packed house. There were 13,000 people on the grounds in the recent contest with the Bears and the sales now indicate that the Jackets will draw almost as many. There are several good and sufficient reasons for the interest the Packer fans are showing in the game. First both teams are serious contenders for the national championship, each with three games won and none lost. Second, the Jackets trounced the Packers here a year ago by a score of 19 to 6. Third, the Jackets have a record of more wins over the Packers than nay other professional team in the league. Fourth, the fans believe that the Packers have an even chance to win the game Sunday. The personnel of the Yellowjacket squad is enough to make anyone who takes pigskin chasing seriously sit up and take notice. The Jackets have perhaps the most "All" football players of any club in the National circuit. Almost all of the Yellowjackets players are All-American, some All-Pro, some All-Western, some All-Eastern, some All-conference, and some All-coast. The others are just plain all right, and that is pretty good. Just as a sample there is Wild Bill Kelly, All-American at Montana, and all-coast for three years. He is a quarterback. Mike Wilson, All-American halfback at Lafayette in 1926; Wally Diehl, all-pro fullback last year; Ken Mercer, an all-state player at high school, and the high scorer in the pro game last season; Jack Filak, all-Eastern tackle at Penn State; Comstock, mentioned for All-American honors at guard while at Georgetown in 1922, and Harold Hansen, All-American guard at Minnesota in 1927. The Packer fans recognize the visitors as a formidable enemy but they rate the Packers second to none in the world. The 53 points the Packers have piled up against two scored by the Chicago Bears, Cardinals, Portsmouth and Dayton professional teams is the reason for the optimism.
FRANKFORD SET FOR "BAY" INVASION
OCTOBER 10 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Philadelphia Yellowjackets are coming here next Sunday with a lineup of football experts gathered from the ends of the earth. Famous names in football in the eastern section of the United States, those well known in the middle west, in the south, and on the Pacific coast, are all mingled in the lineup of the Philadelphia
team. The backfield is made up on men many of whom
are well known in Green Bay for their previous showing
with the Jackets and other professional teams against
the Packers. Everyone will recall "Two Bits" Homan, the
little quarterback who has been with the Jackets since
1925. He is said to be the smallest and shiftiest man in
the pro game. He was educated at Lebanon High school
and Lebanon Valley college...MANY ALL-AMERICANS:
The other helmsman for the Jackets is "Wild Bill" Kelly
of Montana. He received All-American mention during
his first year at college, and was the All-American
selection in 1926, and the All-Coast quarterback for
three straight years. He captained the Western team in
the East-West game in 1926, after which he spent two
years with the New York Yankees, managing the 
passing end of the Yankees' passing attack. He is a
triple threat man who handles the ball in a very versatile
manner. Others in the backfield include Wally Diehl,
who played four years at Bucknell, and was with the 
east team in the East-West game of 1927. He is said to
be the greatest triple threat man every turned out at
Bucknell. With the Yellowjackets last season he was
picked as the All-American professional fullback. Then
there is Kenneth Mercer, who was All-State back during his three years at Simpson college. He was the second leading scorer of the nation in 1924. He was with the Jackets in 1927 and 1928. He was high scorer of the Jackets in 1927 and led the National league in field goals, perfecting seven during the season. Arnold Oehlrich, who was known during his years at Nebraska as one of the best blockers in the state, is another halfback for the Jackets. Charlie Rogers, known as one of the flashiest players in the East, was a mainstay at Pennsylvania about 1925.
