CARDINALS POINT FOR GAME WITH PACKERS SUNDAY
NOV 11 (Chicago Tribune) - The Chicago Cardinals, who built up a defense for Benny Friedman last week, but who forgot to lay for Hap Moran and Ghost Hagerty, are pointing for the whole eleven Green Bay Packers this week. When the Packers come to Comiskey park Sunday, seeking their ninth straight league victory, they will meet a club ready for them in every department. Having successfully passed the first Chicago obstacle in their path, the Bears, they must get by the Cards, otherwise they will be in a tie with New York. Nevers and his cohorts came through the Giants game in fair shape.
GREEN BAY PACKERS COULD BEAT COLLEGE TEAM, SAYS ELDER
NOV 11 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Notre Dame team of the professional football world. That's the name the Green Bay Packers, leaders in the pro circuit, have gained for themselves by their enviable record of twenty wins and no defeats in the last two years. Notre Dame has also been unbeaten in this period, having won fifteen games. Aside from the records of the two teams, the Packers' system of play impressed me as being closely allied to that used by Rockne and his team...PROS HAVE EDGE: It's quite difficult to compare most professional team, which play for cash, with college teams, which play for glory, because they are playing for different ends. But, so far as predicting the outcome of a game between the Packers and a college team is concerned, I believe the Packers should win. I believe this because the pros have had more experience than men who are still in college, and, the personnel of the pros is varied, for it is composed of the best of several colleges...HAVE REAL SPIRIT: You may ask why the Green Bay boys are so successful and wherein they differ from other pro teams. Their success is based on cooperation and teamwork developed by players together as a unit for more than one year. Too, there is a spirit extending in the team which may be likened to a college eleven. They are spurred on by a spirit, which, in the absence of a college, is called civic pride.
KERN EXPECTED TO JOIN PACKERS AGAIN
NOV 12 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - William Kern, one of the outstanding tackles in the National league last year while playing with the Packers, was expected to arrive in Green Bay today to finish the 1930 season with the team, Capt. E.L. Lambeau said this morning. Kern was a 60-minute man with the Packers last year and played in every game with the exception of the tilt with the Yellowjackets. He played a slashing brand of football at all times and was seldom taken out of a play by opposing linemen. While at college at Pittsburgh, Kern was chosen as an all-American tackle in his senior year, 1927. He coached at Pittsburgh in 1928 and joined the Packers in the fall of 1929. This season he again coached at Pittsburgh. Acceptance of Coach Lambeau's offer to play the rest of the year was received late last night by wire with word that he would arrive in Green Bay today. Coach Lambeau said today that he planned to carry all of his men for at least another week, although only 20 are permitted to be in uniform for league games. He probably will cut the squad before leaving for the eastern invasion next week. The game scheduled in Newark Nov. 30 has been cancelled, according to the coach. Newark has been having financial trouble due to the inability of the team to win games and probably will drop out of the circuit. Negotiations are underway for a game with Stapleton on the Nov. 30 date, the coach said, and will be either completed or dropped in a day or two. Coach Lambeau also has been approached by Chicago newspapermen to play a charity game in Chicago on the Nov. 30 date, either with the New York Giants or any other opponent that he selected. He also has been asked to have the team play a charity game in Milwaukee against any team and on any date he selects, but has made no definite plans for either game. If the Packers play a charity game, one of the stipulations will be that part of the proceeds be given to Green Bay charitable organizations, the coach said.
SEEK 22ND VICTORY
NOV 12 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - In the midst of a victory spree that has broken every record in professional football, the Packers are going after their 22nd successive league win they invade White Sox park, Chicago, Sunday for a contest with Ernie Nevers' Cardinals. The team has not dropped a National league encounter since Nov. 29, 1928, when the Frankford Yellowjackets nosed out a 2 to 0 victory in the annual Thanksgiving day game. On the Sunday following this upset at the hands of the Quakers, the Packers invaded Providence and played the winner of the 1928 title to a 7 to 7 tie. Then the Bays stopped off in Chicago on their way home, Dec. 9, and beat the Bears, 6 to 0. This victory started the record breaking winning streak. During the 1929 season which resulted in a title for Coach Lambeau's squad, the Packers captured a dozen league games and played one 0-0 encounter with the Frankford Yellowjackets. This record is all the more outstanding as eight of these contests were away from home. Never in the history of professional football has a national championship repeated but the Packers have been clicking right ever since the 1930 schedule got underway and, to date,
