programs of the year to fit themselves for the champions. One day found the Fort Snelling infantry eleven working out against the pros, and much benefit was derived from the drill...BACKS SHOW STRENGTH: After watching Oren Pape streak down the field for that touchdown Sunday, the supporters of the local team are confident that he at last has hit his true stride, and that from now on he will be one of the outstanding players of the national league. With Joesting likewise taking a new lease on life, the ball carrying side of the Red Jackets is the strongest it has been for some time. And with Nate Barrager leading the line, that department is just as strong as it ever was. The largest crowd of the season is the promise for tomorrow's game, tickets for which are on sale at Foster and Waldo's. Tomorrow's game is booked at 2:30 p.m.
PACKERS INVADE MINNEAPOLIS FOR GAME
OCT 17 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - A big tribe of Norsemen loom as a huge obstacle for the Green Bay Packers to hurdle tomorrow afternoon when they invade Minneapolis for a game with the Redjackets. If the Packers can safely pass the hard test that is sure to be given them by Minneapolis they will remain alone on top in the National league with a clean record, but if they are forced to bow before the northerners they may drop into second place. Capt. E.L. Lambeau thinks that his team with its full strength would be able to take the measure of the Jackets, but now with three men on the injured list and the Gophers showing surprising strength he is worried over the outcome...BLOOD STILL ILL: Johnny Blood, who is still confined to the hospital with internal injuries, and Dick O'Donnell, who suffered a broken rib last Sunday, will not make the trip. Jimmy Bowdoin who also was hurt last week is improving but will not be used unless absolutely necessary, the coach said. With Bowdoin out of the lineup, Mike Michalske, Whitey Woodin and Merle Zuver will have to most of the work as guards. Zuver was stricken with stomach cramps yesterday but the pain has passed away and he is expected to be in shape to play. If necessary, Darling cane be shifted to a guard position as he played at that post most of his college days. The tackle and backfield positions will have enough men to use two sets of players without weakening the team. Perry, Hubbard, Radick and Sleight are in shape to play at tackle, while Lewellen and Dunn probably will be seen in action at quarter and McCrary, Englemann, Fitzgibbons and Herber at halfbacks and Molenda and Lidberg at the fullbacks...LEWELLEN AT QUARTER: Coach Lambeau shifted Lewellen to quarterback this week and put Herber at one of the halfback positions. The move is expected to bring result as Herber lacks the experience needed at the signal calling job. Lewellen can either relieve Dunn at the quarterback post or can play his old halfback position as the occasion demands. Dilweg and Nash probably will see 60 minutes of service as ends, which is quite an assignment for any player. Radick also can be used at an end, but he fits better into the play at a tackle. Minneapolis has a powerful line and a fleet set of backs, led by Pape, who was largely responsible for the Jackets' win over Portsmouth last Sunday. Herb Joesting, all-American fullback from Minnesota, also has been playing fine football this year. Haycraft, an end, Nydahl, halfback, and Gibson, a guard, are other outstanding men on the team. The game will be broadcast over radio stations WHBY, St. Norbert's college, De Pere, and WTMJ, Milwaukee.
JACKETS CLOSE HOME STAY AGAINST PACKERS TODAY
OCT 19 (Minneapolis Star Tribune) - The Minneapolis Red Jackets, fresh from an upset of Willis Glassgow's Portsmouth Spartans Sunday afternoon, will meet their stiffest test of the season as they clash with the mighty Green Bay Packers in the closing game of the year at Nicollet park. The Packers, last year's National league champions who have not been defeated since 1928, are considered the most formidable team in pro competition again this year. Green Bay again is riding at the top of the league heap. But the Jackets are confident of stopping the burly Wisconsin eleven. Coach George Gibson feels certain that his men will repeat their startling triumph of last Sunday when they spoiled the Spartans' unspotted record. Herb Joesting apparently hit his stride last week, and so did Oran Pape while the line functioned as it failed to do in the early games and these facts have raised hopes high in the Minneapolis camp. Green Bay is bringing one of the greatest collections of stars ever banded together and a team that is backed in its home town as only a college team is followed. Heading the group is Verne Lewellen, former Nebraska halfback who has proved the star of almost every Packer engagement in the last two years, Lewellen, county attorney of the county in which Green Bay is located, is a marvelous kicker, passer and runner in addition to being quite some barrister. Also the Packers boast of such backs as Bo Molenda, Herdis McCrary and Carl Lidberg, fullbacks; Red Dunn, quarterback, and Wuert Englemann and Johnny Blood, halfbacks. Three all-Americans, Laverne Dilweg, end; Michalske, guard, and Sleight, tackle, are in the lineup. The Minneapolis management is preparing for the largest crowd of the season. The kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m.
