pass to Dilweg, who ran over the goal line without a man getting near to him. Molenda added the final point with a placement kick. The game ended Green Bay's home season and sends the team on an invasion of foreign territory with a perfect record. Seven games are billed in the midwest and east before the season ends on December 14.

from Barrager and Ward, he was the outstanding forward on the Dunn-Ness combination. In the game here against the Packers Franta probably got as many tackles as all the other Gopher forwards combined. Minneapolis has been using Franta at a tackle but his regular position is guard. Franta weighs 211 pounds and is built along the lines of Mike Michalske. Haycraft, Franta and Pape reported for practice with the Packers Tuesday morning and began learning the Green Bay signals and style of play. They may play against the Bears next Sunday. Coach Lambeau announced the release of Jack Harris, former Wisconsin captain, who reported to the Packers squad last week. Joesting, Wilson, Barrager and Ward of the Minneapolis team have been sold to the Philadelphia Yellowjackets, it was reported today. The Redjackets have been disbanded for the season and probably for all time as Manager John Dunn lost quite a bit of money trying to promote pro football in the northern city.
NOVEMBER 4 (Minneapolis Star Tribune) - Three outstanding stars of the Minneapolis Red Jackets were sold today to the Green Bay Packers, undefeated in the National Professional Football league, Coach Earl Lambeau of the local team announced here. They were Kenneth Haycraft, all-American end at Minnesota; Oran Pape, brilliant halfback from Iowa university, and Chief Franta, giant tackle from St. Thomas. All three players reported to the Green Bay eleven for practice today and will accompany the team on its tour of eastern cities starting this weekend. The trio has been important factors in the play of the Red Jackets and are expected to add more power to the already formidable Green Bay Packers. Pape excels in open field running, his long runs accounting for Iowa victories over Minnesota in the last two seasons these two Big Ten teams met, and they have brought success to the Jackets in games in Minneapolis. His greatest forte is speed and once he gets out in the open, he is hard to catch. Franta has been a stalwart in the Jackets' line, both on offense and defense. This season was the first in professional circles for Pape, but Haycraft played last year with the Red Jackets. They were signed by Managers Val Ness and John Dunn to give Minneapolis the strongest representative it had ever boasted in the pro league. Haycraft was graduated from Minnesota last summer, while Paper was one of a number of athletes dropped from the rolls during the housecleaning at the Hawkeye school at the insistence of the Big Ten.
NOVEMBER 4 (Green Bay) - Strengthening their club, which has been hard hit by injuries, and at the same time building for the future, the Green Bay Packers, national professional football champions and leaders in this year's race with seven straight victories, have acquired three Minneapolis Redjackets by outright sale. The three new Packers are Oran Pape, University of Iowa backfield star in 1929; Kenneth Haycraft, University of Minnesota end in 1928, and Pete Franta, 220-pound St. Thomas College guard in 1927. All three players reported to the Packers Tuesday and immediately jumped into suits to prepare for the important game with the Chicago Bears at Cub Park Sunday afternoon. While a National league rule prevents any club from carrying more than 20 players, the Packers technically suspended several of their injured men to make room for the newcomers. Announcement was made Tuesday that Red Dunn, injured in the top heavy victory over Portsmouth, would be a certain starter against the Bears. Doubt was expressed, however, whether Mike Michalske, also injured, would be able to play.
NOVEMBER 5 (Chicago Tribune) - Political lines fail to cut any figure in the Green Bay Packers' football team, which meets the Bears at Wrigley field Sunday afternoon. Verne Lewellen, an all-American in the pro ranks last year, recently was elected to his second term as district attorney of Brown county, while Lavvie Dilweg has been sent to the state assembly from the Green Bay district. Lewellen is a Republican and his playing mate is a Democrat. Lewellen will be in action Sunday at halfback and Dilweg at end. Verne, who rates as one of the best kickers of the league, is eager to match his prowess with Joe Lintzenich, the new Bear, whose kicking has been one of the features of the play of the north siders. They met early in the season, the game being won by the Packers, 7 to 0 , the lowest score to which they have been held this season.

featured the combats...Father Lumpkin, former Georgia Tech luminary, is the big shot in the Portsmouth Spartans backfield. Lumpkin takes his football without much protection as he never uses a headguard despite his line bucking tactics...Tomaini, the Newark end, has one thing to be satisfied about because he scored on the New York Giants. In the recent encounter which the Gothamites copped, 34 to 7, Tomaini snagged a long pass for the Skeeters only score...Spellman is playing a bang up at end for Providence. The husky wingman is one of the leftovers from the 1929 eleven and his work to date has more than upheld the confidence that Coach Jimmy Conzelman placed in him...Hagberg is more than earning his salt with the Brooklyn aggregation. The former Buffalo Bison is one of those gridders that can play any position and so far this season he has shown clas at four different jobs.
NOV 6 (Minneapolis Star Tribune) - The sale of Kenneth Haycraft, Oran Pape and Chief Franta to the Green Bay Packers would indicate that Val Ness and John Dunn, owners of the Red Jackets, have become discouraged in their efforts to put over pro football in Minneapolis and are ready to dispose of their franchise in the National Professional Football league. Ness and Dunn have been identified with professional football in Minneapolis for a quarter of a century. They have made every effort to make the pro game popular here only to lose money year after year. They decided to make one final effort this year to determine whether Minneapolis really wanted professional football. With this in mind they assembled a really fine team comprised of outstanding college stars and then brought in four of the greatest teams in the league - the Green Bay Packers, the Cardinals and Bears of Chicago and Willis Glassgow's team of Portsmouth, Ohio. The games failed to draw the crowds anticipated with the result that Ness' and Dunn's losses ran into the thousands. Their payroll for players alone amounted to $2.300 a week. Added to this were salaries for a coach and trainer, equipment and the rental of Nicollet park which cost $2,500 for a brief season. The professional game this season were productive of an unusually fine brand of football and rated better attendance than was accorded them. The apathetic attitude of the public toward professional football in Minneapolis no doubt is due to the numerous university, college and high school football games played in the city every week. Whatever the cause, Ness and Dunn have tired of losing money year after year and have decided to get rid of their franchise. They showed rare gameness in sticking to the sport as long as they did.
50,700 SEE GAMES
NOV 6 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - A championship team pays at the gate. If you don't believe this ask the executives of the Green Bay Football corporation who have been checking up attendance figures on the Packers home stay this year. Despite the fact that the depression period is shrinking crowds at college games, business has been better than usual here this year. In 1929, the Green Bay professionals played to 34,100 spectators in the six home games while this fall the paid attendance totaled 50,700 for seven games. Financially, the football corporation's investment in 2,200 addition reserved seats which cost approximately
spotless. Just one defeat at this stage of the battle, and the Packers will slip to second place as the New York Giants have played more games than Green Bay and have only one defeat chalking against them. As in other games this year the Packer aerial attack is expected to play a big part in the contest. If it's timed as it has been recently and Packer backs can outrun and outsmart the Bear secondary, it is certain to be effective. However the veteran Bear backs are not going to be fooled as easy as were the Portsmouth men - they have played the Packers too often. The Bears are also in excellent shape for the fray. Red Grange is galloping harder and faster than he ever did in college and playing with such men in Bill Senn, Bronko Nagurski, Holmer and Sternaman, the Bears will present a constant scoring threat. They have a line that comes near to equaling that of the Packers in size and weight and have some capable ends flanking it...TAKES ENTIRE SQUAD: Capt. Earl Lambeau plans to take his entire squad to Chicago and chose the 20 men who will see action just before the time to dress for the game. Johnny Blood, who has been out of the game for several weeks with an injury to his kidney, is among the men slated to see action. Mike Michalske, who was injured last Sunday, has fully recovered and will be at his customary position at guard, the captain said. Englemann, who also has been missing for a few weeks due to an injured leg, also will be  in service. The three new men, Pape, Franta and Haycraft, signed this week may be called into action, Lambeau said. The team was to take its final workout this morning and leave on the 1:10 train over the Milwaukee road this afternoon. The squad will stop at the Drake hotel in Chicago and will come back to Green Bay after the game. Special trains are planned by both the Northwestern and Milwaukee road railroads to accommodate the crowds expected to follow the team. Many fans will leave on trains departing around midnight while others will go on trains leaving early Sunday morning and arriving in Chicago in time to give fans an opportunity of having dinner before the game. Trains leaving Green Bay for Chicago that are expected to carry most of the fans will run on both the Chicago and Northwestern and Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul roads. The Northwestern road has trains leaving at 12:30 a.m, 2:40 and 6:30 a.m., Sunday morning. Returning trains on the road leave Chicago at 6 p.m., 9 p.m., and 1:50 a.m., Milwaukee road trains will leave Green Bay 1:35 a.m, and 7 a.m. Returning trains will leave Chicago 5 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 10:15 p.m., and 1:55 a.m.
NOV 8 (Chicago Tribune) - When the Bears meet the Green Bay Packers at Wrigley field tomorrow afternoon they will have their best opportunity to win since 1928. Although the national professional football champions come here unbeaten and with a 7 to 0 victory over the Bears in a previous encounter this season, the Chicagoans will have their full strength and a new assortment of offensive plays. A punting duel looms between Verne Lewellen of the Packers and Joe Lintzenich of the Bears. For years Lewellen has ranked as the leading punters of the league, but Lintzenich has a good chance of dethroning him. The last time the Bears defeated the Packers was in 1927 and the first game in 1928 ended in a 12 to 12 tie.
NOV 8 (Green Bay) - The cry "Follow the Packers" that has been sounded as far north as Houghton, Mich., during the last week, was expected Saturday to send nearly 3,000 football fans on special trains, under special fare rates, to Chicago to witness the Packer-Bear contest Sunday. The National league champion Packers left here Saturday in a special car; half a dozen special trains are scheduled for enthusiasts and the team band, both of which groups will parade through Chicago's loop Saturday night.
NOV 8 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Three thousand or more Wisconsin fans are preparing for their first pilgrimage of the football year to Chicago tomorrow to see the Packers battle the Chicago Bears, enemies of many years standing, at the Chicago Cubs' ballpark. By auto, bus and special train, rabid Green Bay fans and the Green Bay Legion band will travel to the metropolis, all in the hopes of seeing the Packers hang up their eighth consecutive win of the National league season. It will be another gala day for all if the team wins, but if it loses - well, they are not prepared to consider that. Fortified with three new men and every veteran with the exception of Jim Bowdoin in shape to play, the Packers are ready for any emergency. They have visions of another win, but are not taking the Bears too lightly, as they know the Chicagoans will be keyed to their highest pitch...GIANTS CLOSE BEHIND: It will take the same kind of football as was played last Sunday to bring home another victory and keep the team's season record 
(GREEN BAY) - There may be a better football team than the Green Bay Packers some place in the world, but you couldn't make some 7,500 fans who saw them trounce the Portsmouth eleven here Sunday, 47 to 13, believe it. Even if there is a better team, it would be hard to find and as no one cares to look for it, it might not be a bad idea to explain how those 7,500 fans got the impression that Green Bay has such a wonder team. In the first place it would be hard to find a team that can complete passes like the Packers completed them Sunday. Seven of nine passes tried were good for yardage. Not bad, when it is considered that no less an authority than Knute Rockne says that a team that completes 35 percent of its passes has a great passing attack.
Then it would be hard to find a team that has a line that opens holes like the Packer line opened them in the Spartan front wall. The records tell us that the Packers gained 206 yards against the Spartans by running plays. It would be hard to find a team with ends like Dilweg, Nash and O'Donnell or with backfield men such as Lewellen, Dunn, McCrary, Fitzgibbons and Molenda ​to say nothing of these youngsters who are looking better every Sunday, Herber and Zuidmulder, and those on the injured list. What about the pass defense and line play on defense, someone might ask, but why go on. The score speaks for itself as does the record of the team in the other six games it won in the National league competition this year, so he will get back to some of the details of the game. Portsmouth never had a chance after the Packers began getting up power early in the first period. Although the Spartans fought hard, there wasn't much doubt about the outcome when the Packers marched down the field and over the goal line for the first score in the opening period and when two more touchdowns were recorded in the second period when little doubt that existed about the outcome was brushed outside.
The timing of Packer forward pass and running plays was excellent throughout the game. The linemen took out the men they were supposed to take out and the backs carried the ball and gained according to their ability to pivot and shift or drive as the occasion demanded. However, even in defeat there were two Portsmouth men who stood out, heads and shoulders about the others in football playing ability. The pair was McClain and Father Lumpkin. Seldom has there been such an example of individual play as these two men turned in. Carrying the ball off tackle, over guard and through the center on play after play these two men smashed ahead by sheer power. True, Packer linemen stopped them, but they had their hands full doing so and often when they thought they had them stopped they managed somehow to keep on going for another three, four or five yards. The victory may cost the Bays the services of Lavvie Dilweg and Mike Michalske in the Chicago Bear game next Sunday. Dilweg sprained his wrist early in the game but continued to play until the end of the battle, turning in his customary great work. After the game he was ordered to the hospital as Dr. W.W. Kelly feared that the wrist was broken but X-ray pictures revealed only a severe sprain. Mike sprained his ankle late in the game and had to be helped from the field. A pass from Lewellen to Dunn was the starting spark in the first march of the Packers. Dunn caught the ball on the Portsmouth 30-yard line and carried it to the 26-yard stripe before he was downed. Lewellen and McCrary then began finding the holes opened for them by linemen, crashing their way for two first downs by straight football to put the ball on the three-yard line. Again Lewellen carried the ball, cutting back over center for a touchdown. Dunn booted the ball from placement squarely between the uprights and the Packers had a 7 to 0 lead.
In the second period, Portsmouth threatened when Fleckenstein, a former Bear now playing end with the Spartans, caught a pass on the Packers' 15-yard line after Lumpkin had picked up some yardage with powerful thrusts at the line. A pass over the goal line, however, spoiled the scoring opportunity. A few minutes later, McCrary intercepted a Spartan pass in the center of the field and again Molenda, McCrary and Lewellen began smashing down the field, as Dunn picked the weak spots in the Portsmouth defense and capitalized on them. Molenda made seven yards, Lewellen made six, McCrary nine, that's the way it went until the Bays reached the 15-yard line. On a fake pass play, Dunn then circled left end, evading one man with a shifty side step, but getting stopped by two others as he reached the one-yard line. Dunn called he play for Lewellen to carry the ball and Lew delivered, crashing over center for a touchdown, and again Dunn kicked for the extra point and the score was 14 to 0 in Green Bay's favor. Lew got off a great punt later in the period, Nash downing the ball on the five-yard line and near the sideline. Portsmouth punted back and Dunn caught the ball in midfield, racing to the 35-yard line before he was ​stopped. Dunn then dropped back and passed to Lew, who was stopped on the 12-yard line. Three plays with the Packers piledriving backfield forging ahead put the ball on the one-foot line and Molenda crashed over on a play at center. The pass from center was low and Dunn did not have an opportunity to kick so he tried to pass to Dilweg that was incomplete. The half ended with Green Bay leading, 20 to 0.
Darling, who went in at center at the start of the third period, bobbed up and intercepted a Portsmouth pass soon after the start of the quarter, the Packers getting the ball on the Spartan 38-yard line. Dunn then dropped back on a fake line plunge and heaved a pass to McCrary, who galloped from the 15-yard line over the goal line, spinning out of Bennett's arms at the five-yard mark where the Portsmouth back tried to stop him. Dunn again kicked the ball from placement to give the Packers a 27 to 0 lead. McClain broke through on a great play soon after this score, tearing 35 yards to the Packer 31-yard line before Nash caught him from behind. Two plays failed to gain and Lumpkin dropped back and passed to McClain, who was clear. McClain outran the Packer secondary to score. The kick for the extra point was wide of the posts. The ever-alert Dilweg recovered a fumbled punt by Bennett on the Portsmouth 41-yard line to give Green Bay another chance to score. Herber, on a great run over right tackle, cut back to the left and picked up 15 yards. Dunn then dropped back and on the identical play that was used earlier in the same period passed to McCrary who took the ball out of the hands of Bennett and raced over the goal. Bo Molenda's kick from placement was good and the Bays had a 33 to 6 advantage.
In the fourth period, Portsmouth was given the ball on  the Packer 11-yard line when Umpire Keefe ruled interference with a pass receiver. McClain added two yards and then Novotny cut over tackle for a touchdown. Lewis' kick from placement added another point to the Spartan score. Running plays carried the ball from midfield to the one-yard line for the Packers in the final period and Fitzgibbons plunged over right tackle for a touchdown and Molenda added the extra point with a placekick. The final Green Bay marker came a minute before the end of the game. Zuidmuler had picked up 29 yards on three plays and a pass, Lew to Fitzgibbons, was completed to put the ball deep in Portsmouth territory. Lewellen then dropped back to 
NOV 3 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - It was at first thought Mike Michalske had broken his ankle when he was carried from the field in the fourth period but examination revealed only a fracture of a minor bone. The injury may keep Mike out of the Bear game...Red Dunn was knocked out in the final half of the game and had to be helped off the field. After a few minutes rest Red came around all right and appeared to suffer no ill effects...An unusual play was recorded in the course of the game. Mike Michalske kicked off over the goal line to McClain who tipped the ball as it sailed over his head. He picked the ball up but before he could get started three Packer men had come down the field and stopped him behind the goal. The umpire ruled a safety but Bobby Cahn, the referee, changed it to a touchback ruling that the impetus that sent the ball over the goal was furnished by the Packers...Lumpkin made some fine returns of kickoffs, on one occasion going 55 yards before he was stopped by Dunn, the only man between him and the goal line. Lumpkin smashed his way past five men who tried to stop him, but Dunn made a great tackle and did the trick...Duke Hanny, who played with the Packers early this season, was in a Portsmouth uniform and saw some service as tackle. Fleckenstein, former fighting Bear player, also played with the Spartans...There may be several loyal fans who travel long distances to see the Packers in action every Sunday, but Homer Don Levy, 87 year old Oconto resident, probably is the oldest and still the most loyal of them all. Mr. Don Levy has not missed a game this season.
NOV 4 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Orin Pape, all-Western halfback from Iowa, Kenneth Haycraft, all-American end from Minnesota, and Chief Franta, St. Thomas guard joined the Packers Tuesday. Determined to be prepared for any emergency on the last lap of the 1930 National League pennant chase, Coach Lambeau completed a deal Monday night with Manager Dunn of the Minneapolis Redjackets for the men. It was an outright purchase and the Football Corporation laid a good-sized check on the line for the gridders. Pape was one of the best backs ever developed at Iowa and his debut in the professional game has been a success. He ran 65 yards for a touchdown against the Chicago Cards and in the game against Portsmouth he dashed 60 yards for another score. Pape is a fancy stepper in the open field, and, with the Green Bay line in front, he should be able to get into the vacant spaces. Pape weighs 180 pounds. Kenneth Haycraft played three years of varsity football at Minneapolis. In 1927 he was an all-conference end and in 1928 he was picked as an all-conference, all-Western and all-American wingman. This is his second year in professional football and his performances at the line have been outstanding for the Redjackets. Haycraft weighs 175 pounds and speed is his middle name. He is an expert receiver of passes and it is in the overhead attack that his basketball experience comes in handy. Haycraft graduated from the Minneapolis law school and when not playing football, is associated with a prominent legal firm in Minneapolis. Franta hails from St. Thomas College. This was his second year with Minneapolis and aside
who has made arrangements for the group...ARRIVE EARLY SUNDAY: Arriving in Chicago early Sunday morning the band will be taken by special buses from the depot to the Parkway hotel, headquarters of the Packers and then over to the Chicago Cubs ballpark, where the game will be played. After the game, the band will board the special buses again, to be taken to the Northwestern train. The musicians will leave on the special excursion train, departing from Chicago at 6 o'clock and arriving in Green bay at 11:10, coming by way of the lakeshore without a stop. The following Sunday the band will travel over the Milwaukee road trains for the Cardinal game in Chicago. The Chicago Bears have a reputation of turning out more Packer fans when the two team clash than any other team that ever faced the Packers, and will probably continue this reputation for some time, although the New York Giants did beat the Bears' record in their recent game here. Everyone knows that when the Packers and Bears meet there is a real football game on tap. Red Grange, Sternaman, Walquist, Senn, Brambaugh, Holmer, the most famous of the Bear backs are almost as well known in Green Bay as are Lewellen, Blood, McCrary, Molenda, Dunn, Herber, Englemann, Zuidmulder, Lidberg and the other members of the Packer backfield...LINE IS STRONG: The Bear line, Trafton, Nagurski, Johnsos, G. Grange, Pearson, McMullen, Carlson, Murray, Frump, Pauly and Lyman are likewise as well known as Dilweg, Michalske, Bowdoin, Earpe, Darling, Woodin, Sleight, O'Donnell and Nash. This acquaintance with the players on both teams makes the Packer-Bear games the most interesting it is possible to serve up to the fans. The Bears have always served up their best wares to the Packers, and next Sunday they are going to be out there waiting for their chance to knock the national champions right off the top of the roast. No Green Bay fan expects any quarter, or any friendly hand up from the Chicago Bears. They are the natural enemies of the Packers and are to be treated as such. The Packers have now frequently beaten the Bears in Chicago, but they have never done it without a real battle. It is the eighth step on the ladder to the second national championship for Green Bay and the Bears are going to smear that step with as much tanglefoot as possible
NOV 5 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Mike Michalske, who was taken out of the Packer-Portsmouth game here Sunday because of an injury to his foot, was to be released from St. Mary's Hospital today after undergoing repairs for the fracture of a minor bone in his left foot. Mike will be in shape to take part in the Packer-Bear fracas Sunday, according to Dr. W.W. Kelly, club physician. Jim Bowdoin, who has been out of the game for several weeks, will be released from the hospital this week but will not see action Sunday.
NOV 5 (Green Bay) - Verne C. Lewellen, star halfback on the championship Green Bay Packers football team, was re-elected Brown County District Attorney at Tuesday's election by a substantial majority. Lewellen's teammate, Lavvie Dilweg, all-American end, running for the Assembly from the first District, was defeated by Harold M. Malchow, incumbent.
NOV 5 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - On to Chicago! That is the battle cry of the Green Bay Packers, the famous Legion Lumberjack band and some 3,000 followers, as preparations are being made for the invasion of the den of the Chicago Bears next Sunday. No one knows how many Packer fans will board the special trains for Chicago next Saturday and Sunday but the number will easily run into the thousands. All sections of eastern and northern Wisconsin will contribute to the crowd and there will be joiners climbing aboard the trains from nearly every city of any size in northern Michigan. Both the Northwestern and the Milwaukee road are running excursions to the game and in addition to those who will take advantage of low fares, there will be motorists by the hundreds. Extensive plans have been made by the Lumberjack band for the weekend. Under the direction of Ernest Stiller the band of about 40 men will stage a parade in Green Bay before proceeding to the Northwestern road station to board a special car on the first section of the midnight train to the home of the Bears. The band will march from the Elks club to the station, passing down Washington Street and over the bridge to the station about 10 or 10:30 o'clock according to I.B. Barkelar,
NOV 6 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - There will be plenty of seats in the Packer section at Wrigley field Chicago Sunday as George Halas, co-manager of the Bears, has assured the Green Bay Football corporation that an enlarged space has been set aside in the grandstand. The section set aside for the Green Bay fans is close to the middle of the park along the third base foul line. The seats are $1.50 and it is first come, first served. The Bears have made arrangements to seat the Lumberjack band right in the heart of the section...ONLY BOXES RESERVED: Many queries have been received about the reserved seats. The only seats reserved at Wrigley field for the professional football games are the boxes. Some $2 seats are located in front of the $1.50 section, which will be occupied by the Packer followers. There are 25 tiers of these boxes. Arthur Gotto, agent for the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific railroad here,
has a block of 200 of these box seats for sale. They can be secured at the railroad depot ticket office on South Washington-st. Mr. Gotto has made arrangements with the Chicago Bear management for a late "check in" on these tickets, and as long as they last, they will be available here until Sunday morning at 7 o'clock...PACKERS TO STOP AT DRAKE: The Packer squad leaves here over the Milwaukee road Saturday afternoon in a special parlor car attached to the 1:10 train for Chicago. This will get Coach Lambeau's squad into the lair of the Bears early Saturday evening. On this trip, the national champions will make their headquarters for the first time at the Drake hotel instead of the Parkway as heretofore. There should be a lot of professional football talk in the air around the Drake over the weekend as Benny Friedman and the New York Giants, who playing the Cardinals in Chicago this Sunday at Comiskey park will also stay at the hotel...INTEREST IS HOT: Interest in the Packer-Bear game is hot here and all over the state as well. Sport writers from three Milwaukee papers and the Madison State Journal have already filed applications for sideline passes. The Packer players are going about their practice this week in a determined sort of way. Coach Lambeau is still worried about his hospital list but it is possible that aside from Blood and Bowdoin, all the other men will be in fair shape for the battle. The new arrivals - Pape, Haycraft and Franta - have been put through some intensive drill since joining the club and all have rapidly grasped the Packers' style of play. Pape has been assigned 56 as his number; Haycraft will wear 21, while 55 is Franta's numeral.
$4,000 was about balanced with the sale of these seats. If the Packers play before another 50,000 spectators in their foreign games, they will have established an all time professional football attendance record.
NOV 6 (Chicago Tribune) - The Bears will present their strongest lineup of the season Sunday when they meet the Green Bay Packers, undefeated leaders of the National Professional Football league, at Wrigley field. Almost all of the Bears' cripples are in good condition and will be able to give their best for the first time in weeks. It will be the 19th time the Packers have played the Bears. Green Bay has won eight, the Bears six and four have resulted in ties. The last time the Bears beat the Packers was in 1927, the score being 14 to 6. The first game in 1928 was a 12-12 tie. Since then six games have been played, the Packers winning all. In their first meeting this year the Bears lost to the Packers at Green Bay, 7 to 0. The Chicagoans did not have their full strength in this game, a factor which leads followers of the Bears to believe that the Packers will suffer their first defeat here Sunday.
NOV 7 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Guards may come and guards may go, but there is one guard on the Green Bay Packer team who goes on and on, getting better if anything, as the years roll by. He is, as you probably know, Whitey Woodin, the oldest man in point of service on the Green Bay team, excepting Capt. Lambeau. Competition in the rugged, body-wrecking professional football game usually slows up the average player in about six or seven years. Legs get weary and tired bodies refuse to obey the commands of the mind after that length of time with most players, but occasionally there comes along a man such as Whitey who never seems to weaken. Don't get the idea that Whitey is old. He is not. But nine years of competition is a long time to play in this game, and many men who played with him in the early days have long since  passed out of the picture...HAS GREAT RECORD: Whitey has made a remarkable record since joining the Packer team. He has played stellar football against every team in the country, taking care of all-Americans, all westerns and all eastern, or what have you, as they came along. In the nine years that he has played for Green Bay, he has never been available due to injuries! That speaks a lot for his physical condition. Put him against an unbalanced line with wingbacks breaking quickly to one side or the other, put him against straight formations with line bucks hitting the center of the wall, pull him out of the line to run interference when the Packers are on the offense or have him kick off at the start of the game and he will do every job he is scheduled to do, without much fuss but thoroughly and effectively...SELDOM GETS CREDIT: Never a particular colorful or flashy player, Whitey seldom gets the credit that he deserves. His value to the team has been his ability to go into any game, regardless of the strength of opponents and turn in a proficient job. He doesn't  play guard the same way that Mike Michalske does, weaving all over the defensive wall and knifing through, and it is a good thing that he doesn't because two men playing that kind of football might do more harm than good. But he can plug a hole effectively and he can charge out an opponent - the two things a good guard must do. Whitey rises to his greatest height when the competition becomes unusually keen. Against the Bears, in particular, he has always been outstanding, fighting every minute and helping to instill fight into his teammates with shouts of encouragement...WILL PLAY SUNDAY: He will be in there Sunday again, ready to bust up the Bear front wall. He has been in every Bear game for the past three years and the Bears haven't won one of them. Do you remember some of the other guards who have been here? After graduating from Marquette, Whitey joined the Packers playing guard with Moose Gardner. Then Rip Owens, Wisconsin, came along and Frank Mayer, of Notre Dame, and Abe Abramson, Minnesota, and Dewey Lyle. In the late years, Bruce Jones, Alabama, and Paul Minick, Iowa, were on the team as guards. They have all gone, except Whitey. Here's to you, Whitey, may you continue to play the same kind of football for another nine years.

NOV 7 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Chicago football pilgrimage is underway and the Green Bay invasion of the Windy City for the Bear game promises to be the greatest on record. The railroad officials report the demand for excursion tickets has been unusually heavy and both lines are prepared to add extra cars to the train pulling out of here around midnight Saturday and Sunday morning. The advance guard of the Chicago contingent is composed mainly of Marquette graduates who are stopping in Milwaukee for the bonfire celebration during the homecoming. These Marquette grads will stay over in the Cream City for the Hilltop-Iowa game and then move on to Chicago for the battle at Wrigley field Sunday afternoon. Some of the autoists are scanning the weather reports closely and incidentally praying for a bit warmer weather. From the talk heard around town it would indicate that about 10 a.m. Sunday there will be a Green Bay traffic jam along State-st., Chicago. The Packers leave here Saturday afternoon, 1:10, over the Milwaukee road and a number of the fans are making this train also as it will get them into Chicago in time to attend the theater. The team went through a snappy practice this morning with all ands on deck for the drill except Bowdoin. Johnny Blood took a long workout at his halfback position and seemed to function well despite his long layoff, due to the injury he received in the New York Giant game Oct. 5. As yet Captain Lambeau has not announced his starting lineup or the 20 players to be eligible for the Bear game. The Bay helmsman will probably wait until the last minute to pick his squad but it is a safe bet he will shoot the works if dry going is promised in Chicago.
the local eleven...GIANTS ON PACKERS HEELS: With the New York Giants on the heels of the Packers, the latter can't afford to lose to the Bears. That they face a chance of tasting defeat is conceded even by the most rabid Bay adherents, especially those who saw the first game this year. Bronko Nagurski will be at fullback today and will be in opposition to Cully Lidberg, who, like the Bronko, was a star line crasher at the University of Minnesota. When they vied for honors in Green Bay, Nagurski had a little for the better of it. Verne Lewellen, the district attorney halfback, will engage in a punting duel with the Bears' new halfback, Joe Lintzenich, whose boots have been a feature this season. Lewellen, a veteran of seven years' standing with the Packers, rated All-American pro honors last year, along with Augie Michalske, tackle, and Lavvie Dilweg, end, who is a state representative from the Green Bay district...DUNN ALSO VETERANS: Lewellen is a Republican and Dilweg a Democrat. But there is no politics on the Green Bay squad. Red Dunn will direct the Packers' attack, and he, too, is a veteran of seven years' service with the team. He will match wits with Joey Sternaman, who will start, and Brumbaugh, ex-Florida U. man, will probably finish or vice versa. Four of the best ends in the business will be seen in action. Nash will play opposite Dilweg and they will be opposed by Johnson and Drury. All are more than 6 feet 2 inches in height and average around 200 pounds in weight. Green Bay has enjoyed a long run of triumphs, winning 21 out of its last 23 games, being tied twice. The team has not tasted defeat since November, 1928, when Frankford eked out a 2 to 0 victory.
NOV 8 (Chicago) - One of those gridiron battle which you often read about but seldom see, will be staged at Wrigley Field Sunday afternoon when the Green Bay Packers, national champions, have it out with the Chicago Bears. This mighty Wisconsin aggregation hasn't tasted defeat in two years and Coach Lambeau's squad is reported fit to stamp out the threat of the Halas-Sternaman eleven. If fair weather prevails, one of the largest crowds in the history of professional football in Chicago is expected to be on hand. The Bays are coming here with some 3,000 rooters from all parts of Wisconsin. Ever since 1921, the Bears and Packers have been mixing in a football days. In the opening game back in '21, the teams put on a battle and they have been at it ever since. A real grudge fracas has always been on tap and it is a good bet that Sunday's game will be jammed to the brim with everything inside the rule book and out.
NOV 8 (Chicago Tribune) - The Green Bay Packers, champions of the National Pro Football league, and more than 3,000 Wisconsin fans, including the Green Bay Lumberjack band, arrived last night for the contest with the Bears at Wrigley field this afternoon. The game, the high spot of the local season, promises to be a terrific battle with the Bears at full strength and the Packers bolstered by the addition of three players, Pape, Haycraft and Franta, purchased this week from the Minneapolis Redjackets. Early in the season, the Packers beat the Bears, 7 to 0, for the sixth straight since they began playing in Green Bay, to make their string of victories 8 to 6 over the Bears. Four games since the first clash in 1921 resulted in ties. That 7 to 0 contest was the fifth time the Packers blanked
