GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - The Oshkosh All-Stars may be a good football team, but it has a lot to learn about the brand of football played by the Green Bay Packers. In the opening professional football of the season at the City stadium Sunday, the Packers convincingly demonstrated that there is a world of difference between the play of National champions and independent professional squads, when they trounced Oshlosh by a core of 46 to 0 before approximately 5,000 fans. It was the same kind of a Packer team that trounced Oshkosh as won the National league title last year. A few members of the 1929 team were missing, but in their places were newcomers who soon earned the esteem of the crowd. Among those new men were a pair of Green Bay boys, former West High stars, who left a good impression. The youths were Kenneth Radick and Arnold Herber. Both saw considerable action and figured in several sensational plays. Then there was Dave Zuidmulder, former East High star, who also came into his own by grabbing a forward pass in the last quarter and racing 60 yards for a touchdown, to say nothing about Bloodgood, Englemann, Fitzgibbons, all halfbacks, and Hanny, Sleight and Zuver, linemen, who played their first football for Green Bay. 
PLAY LIKE CHAMPIONS
Of the veteran performers, all played like champions should play it. Mike Michalske, that wonder guard, who always seems to be in the right place, Lavvie Dilweg, dean of all ends, Verne Lewellen, the galloping, kicking halfback, and Johnny Blood were particularly outstanding.You could down the list, mentioning every player on the squad and fans could remember at least
one outstanding play in which each individual featured.
Capt. E.L. Lambeau used every man on his squad and
at no time did the team appear weak. His starting lineup
contained practically all the new men and they soon
marched down the field for a touchdown, using nothing
but straight football and not once relying on passes for
gains. Oshkosh was better able to cope with the Bay
aerial game than they were with the smashing, 
hammering off tackle, spinners and around end plays.
It was in this department of the game that the Packers
showed up to best advantage, although their passing
was such that it left no doubt in the minds of fans that
with another week to polish the attack, it will be just as
useful as it was last year when it led the Green Bay
team to a title. Several Oshkosh men showed up to 
good advantage, crashing in occasionally to smear
Green Bay plays and knock down forward passes, and
now and then breaking through for short gains. Johnny
Roach, former Notre Dame halfback, Ricatti, a halfback,
Johnson, a former Appleton fullback, and Red Martin,
Ripon flash, were the outstanding players from the
Sawdust City team. At no time, however, was Oshkosh
beyond the Packer 40-yard line and no real scoring
threat was presented.
MOLENDA GOES OVER
Taking the ball after the kickoff, Green Bay began a
march in the first quarter that led to a touchdown. Line
bucking plays that sent Englemann, Zuidmulder and
Lidberg down the field brought the ball to the 30 yard
line, Englemann then got off to a great end run behind
fine interference, and carried the ball near the 10 yard
line. A few more line bucking plays and Bo Molenda
crashed over for a touchdown. The try for an extra point
by a placekick went wide of the posts. A forward pass,
Herber to Englemann, gave the Packers the ball on the
enemy 45 yard line at the start of the second quarter.
Capt. Lambeau then sent in a full new team and it
brought the ball 12 yards nearer the goal on two plays.
On the third play, Lewellen dropped back and heaved a
pass to Tom Nash, who made a great leaping catch and
ran along the sidelines across the goal. The referee
ruled that Tom went out of bounds on the eight yard line,
however, and brought the ball back to that spot. An off
tackle smash with Lewellen carrying the ball picked up
three yards, then McCrary smashed through the center
of the line for a touchdown. The try for an extra point by
a kick was wide and the score at the end of the first
half was 12 to 0. Captain Lambeau again shifted his
lineup at the start of the third period and Johnny Blood
began to run wild, tearing off wide end runs for gains of
20 and 35 yards and taking a pair of forward passes out
of the air to put the Packers in scoring positions.
BLOOD GETS AWAY
Blood's first long run brought the ball to the 40 yard line.
Herber then passed to Johnny who ran to the 28 yard 
line. Another pass to Blood brought the ball to the
Oshkosh six-yard line. Blood then picked up three more
on an off-tackle play and Bo Molenda went over for a
touchdown. Herber dropkicked for the extra point. A few
minutes later, Blood again broke loose, and went
around left end for a 35 yard gain before he was downed
on the 14 yard line. Englemann then picked up nine
yards at right tackle and Molenda added four more at
right guard. On the third play, Englemann went over the
center of the line for the fourth touchdown. Herber was
rushed and his kick for an extra point was wide. The
Packers were in scoring position as the fourth period
started due to some good runs and pass plays in which
Blood and Ftizgibbons figured. Lewellen went into the
game at the start of the quarter and on two tries carried
the ball over from the five yard line. Dunn placekicked
for the extra point. A few minutes later Dave Zuidmulder
took a long pass from Johnny Blood, leaping high into
the air to spear the ball and sped past three Oshkosh
players to run 60 yards for a touchdown. Dunn again
placekicked the extra point and the Packers had a 39
to 0 advantage. The final score of the game came a few
minutes later after Lavvie Dilweg leaped into the air and
speared a pass, carrying the ball to the 15 yard line
before he was brought down. Lavvie evaded three men
and was nearly clear for a touchdown before he was
stopped by Draftz, former Oconto star. Draftz was 
knocked out tackling Lavvie. Molenda picked up three
yards and then Bloodgood grabbed a fumble and sliced
between the tackle and end for a seven yard gain and
the final touchdown of the game. Molenda placekicked
the extra point, making the score 46 to 0.

NEWS AND NOTES
SIDELIGHTS
SEPTEMBER 15 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - For those who favor statistics, it will be interesting to know that the Packers gained 280 yards from scrimmage while Oshkosh only gained 67 yards...The Packers completed eight forward passes and tried 18, for a total gain of 225 yards. Oshkosh gained 30 yard by completing two of 12 passes...The Packers made 20 first downs to four for the invaders and stayed about even on the exchange of punts. The Packers were penalized 40 yards to 25 for Oshkosh. Three Oshkosh passes were intercepted by Green Bay men while no Green Bay passes were intercepted by Oshkosh. Nash intercepted two passes and Lavvie Dilweg intercepted one...Pathe Newsreel cameramen were on hand to take sound pictures of the opening game. They will be shown in this part of the country within a week or ten days, according to the cameramen...The Legion band did its share in entertainment, playing several selections before the game and between quarters and during the half rest period...The Vita-Vox public address system was used again, giving a running account of the battle. Homer Collett was at the microphone. The game was broadcast to fans throughout Wisconsin by WHBY, St. Nortbert's college, De Pere, radio station, with Harold T. Shannon and Hal Lansing at the microphone...Cal Hubbard was much in evidence rushing forward passers and holding his own on the defense. On one occasion, both he and Michalske missed Johnny Roach when they tried to stop him 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage and then handed each other verbal "razzberries"...Perry also played a great game at the tackle position and in the first three plays of the game spilled Oshkosh backs twice behind the line of scrimmage...In the closing periods of the game, Oshkosh began using the forward pass game quite extensively so the Packers used five men back of the line to knock down the passes. Darling was pulled out from the line to the secondary and broke up several of the pass plays...Carl Lidberg, who went out of the game in the final quarter with a wrenched ankle, will not be laid up more than a day or two with the injury, doctors said. The ankle is only slightly sprained and he should be in shape to play again next Sunday against the Cardinals...The field and stands presented an attractive setting for the game. The turf is in the best of shape, while the stands, recently painted, give the field the atmosphere of a college stadium...The spectators were eager to give Oshkosh men a hand when they pulled good plays. In the last half, when Johnny Roach returned a punt more than 30 yards to midfield, eluding several Packers by sidestepping the fans gave him a great hand. They also applauded for Swede Johnson, former Appleton fullback, who played a fine game for the invaders..Eddie Kotal, popular halfback of the 1929 team and now coach of the Lawrence college varsity, was an interested spectator on the sidelines. Eddie was introduced to the crowd by the Vita-Vox system, but he was too modest to take a bow.
​CARDINALS PREPARE FOR PACKER GAME
SEPTEMBER 16 (Sturgis, MI) - The Chicago Cardinals,
who have been here for three weeks, will pack their
luggage Thursday and entrain for Green Bay, where 
they will clash with the Packers, the 1929 national
champions in the opening game of the NFL schedule.
Three weeks of preseason work here has put Ernie
Nevers' squad in fine shape and the Chicagoans are
confident of getting off on the right foot despite the fact
Green Bay again has a corking good club...MUCH
IMPROVED CLUB: The Cardinals look like a much
improved ball club. The great line of last year is
practically intact. Strength has been added at one end
while two new centers have been imported to fill the gap
left vacant by O.J. Larson, who is coaching at De Paul.
Last year, Nevers was practically the whole show for the
Cardinals offensively but it will be a different story this
fall as there are many new backs in the fold, including
Howard Maple, an all-American quarter at Oregon in
1928. It was Maple who beat New York singlehandedly
in one of the great gridiron upsets in 1928...BOGUE,
BELDEN, BOYD: Mickey McDonald, Gene Rose, Cobb
Rooney and Bullet Baker are the backfield holdovers
from 1929. The new material includes Maple, George
Bogue of Standford, Chuck Belden of St. Mary's, Dick
Sturtridge, who was with the Bears last season, and
Bill Boyd, a speed merchant from Missouri. Chuck Kassel, who has always been a thorn in the side of Green Bay, will again perform at one end while three new aspirants are making a bid for the other wing. Joe Pappio, a big six-footer from the Haskell Indians, George Kenneally, a veteran pro who has played with Pottsville and Boston, and Fred Failing from Georgetown are all trying to make the grade as a running mate to Kassel. The Cardinals' tackle are strong. Duke Slater, a veteran of the postgraduate game, is back. Then there is Jess Tinsley, from Louisiana, who was with the Cards in 1929, and Jake Crawford Williams, another southerner, who has a year of pro ball experience. He is a product of Texas Christian U. Lou Gordon, a three year star at Illinois, is a newcomer in the postgraduate game...TWO VETERAN GUARDS: Walt Kiesling and Herb Blumer, Cardinals' flashy guards of 1929, are back in uniform. Among the new center flankers is Charlie Diehl from the University of Idaho. He was an all-American guard in 1928. Last season Diehl performed with the Olympic club of San Francisco. Buck Weaver, Chicago, is another guard who seems to know what it is all about. Hogue is a guard that has seen a lot of professional football action. Nevers always insists on aggressive centers and, when he lost Larson, he searched all over the country for a pair of pivot men who will fit in his style of play. Mickey Erickson from Northwestern was the first to be signed. He played three years at Evanston and showed so much class that Tom Lowry was never missed. The Cardinals' other center is Randolph, from Indiana, who was all-conference choice in 1928. During the fall of 1929, Randolph was a member of the Portsmouth Spartans and showed lots of class.
PACKERS HAVE WON SIX, LOST FOUR, TIED TWO WITH CARDS
SEPTEMBER 17 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Since 1921, the Chicago Cardinals and the Green Bay Packers, who meet here Sunday, have been battling in football and of the dozen games played, the Bays emerged victorious in six, lost four and tied two. The first game the Packers ever played in Chicago was against the Cards and it ended in a 3 to 3 tie. Lambeau
kicked a field goal in the third quarter but Paddy Driscoll
knotted the count with a couple of minutes to go. In
1924, Green Bay invaded the Cardinals' home lot and
suffered a 16 to 3 reversal. Charlie Mathys got Green
Bay's field goal while the Horween boys, who played
under the name of McMahon, starred for the Cardinals.
Arnold Horween is now coaching Harvard. Driscoll
kicked a field goal for the Cards in 1924, winning the
fracas, 3 to 0. In this contest, Cub Buck made a half
dozen attempts for placekicks but without success. 
Tillie Voss once ran the ball for the Packers to the Card
ten-yard line but the Bays were held tight. The 1925 
game, which was played at White Sox pack, was 
enlivened with a battle royal. The Cards won 13 to 6, coming from behind after George Abramson scored two field goals. A weird decision on a forward pass by the officials and Paddy Driscoll's educated toe doomed the Packers. Two games were played in 1926. The Cards came here early in the season and whipped the Packers, 13 to 7, thanks to the brilliant play of Red Dunn, who at that time was sporting a Chicago uniform. The return game in Chicago was won by the Packers, 3 to 0. Pid Purdy starred with a dropkick. This was the first game Green Bay won in the Windy City. In 1927, the Cardinals showed in Green Bay for the early game and met defeat, 13 to 0, but when the Bays invaded Chicago later in the season Chris O'Brien's crew upset the dope bucket by holding the Lambeau-men to a 6-6 no decision fracas. The Packers and Cardinals only met once in 1928 and this resulted in a 20-0 upset for the Chicagoans. Guy Chamberlin was coaching the Cards at this time and fans still remember how he barked at his players to "watch that guy Kotal" during the contest at the City stadium. In 1929, the Packers' National championship, the Cardinals took it on the chin three times but not without a struggle in each combat. In the first game of the series played here, the Packers won 9 to 2. The Bays twice invaded Chicago, winning by 7 to 6 and 13 to 0 scores. Last season's upsets haven't set very well on Nevers' aggregation and the players were threatening vengeance this fall. The first meeting of the teams is scheduled here this Sunday while the Packers play a return engagement with the Cardinals at White Sox park in Chicago Sunday November 16.
PACKER STAR WINS GREEN BAY PRIMARY
SEPTEMBER 17 (Green Bay) - Verne C. Lewellen, many time chosen All-American professional halfback and still a star performer with the Green Bay Packers, proved Tuesday that a football player is not without honor in his own country, whatever may be true of prophets. Lew was easily nominated for the office of district attorney on the Republican ticket, when 24 of the 49 precincts in Brown County gave him a lead of 1,000 over Lee Cranston. Lew is seeking his second term in the office. During the two years he served he was selected as All-American halfback, and recognized as the world's greatest punter. In addition to all this his campaign material claimed that there were fewer criminal cases pending in the courts at the opening of the polls than at any time in the past six years.
1929 PENNANT TO BE RAISED HERE SUNDAY
SEPTEMBER 18 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Packer
football fans who usually arrive at the city stadium about
2 p.m. are urged to be on hand 20 minutes before that
time Sunday if they want to see the 1929 national
championship pennant raised. Rather than set back the
starting hour, the Football corporation directors decided
to raise the flag to the breeze in a brief ceremony
promptly at 1:45. Joe F. Carr, president of the NFL,
Mayor John V. Diener, L. H. Joannes, president of the
Football corporation, players from both the Packers and
Cardinal elevens, a detail of soldiers and sailors, serving
as color guards, and the Green Bay Legion band will
take part in the ceremonies. It was originally planned to
have the Chicago Bears' squad participate as it was
figured that they would be here to watch the Packers
after playing in Oshkosh Saturday. However, the Bears
called off the Oshkosh game and instead will play
Brooklyn at Cubs' park. The program as mapped out
calls for a parade down the gridiron to the south end of
the field where the flag staff towers high in the air. While
movie cameras are clicking, President Carr will present
the pennant to L.H. Joannes, who in turn will hand the
bunting to Dr. W.W. Kelly, who served as president of
the Football corporation in 1929. Then there will be a
few words of congratulation and appreciation exhanged
by the officials. Following this while the Star Spangled Banner is being played, the color guard will loft the American flag to the top of the flag pole and then, while "On, Wisconsin" reechoes through the park, Dr. Kelly will pull the ropes raising the championship banner, which bears the insignia - "National Champions, 1929". All indications point to a large crowd at the flag raising game as a brisk advance ticket sale is reported. According to E.A. Spachmann, who directs the ticket distribution, this year's demand for seats at the Cardinal game is one of the heaviest on record. Mail orders are being filled promptly and in consideration of the last minute purchasers the central ticket office at the Columbus club will be open Sunday morning from 9 a.m. to noon.
ARRIVE SATURDAY NIGHT
SEPTEMBER 18 (Chicago) - The Chicago Cardinals' football squad of 30 players, headed by Ernie Nevers and Dr. E.H. Jones, owner, will leave early Saturday for Green Bay, where they are scheduled to play the Packers, national champions, in the opening game of the National league season. Last Sunday, the Cardinals won a 30-0 game from the Sturgis, Mich., club. While in Green Bay, the Cardinal squad will headquarter in the Northland hotel.
HALSEY HALL WILL REFEREE PACKER-CARDINAL GRID TILT
SEPTEMBER 19 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Halsey Hall, veteran Minneapolis official and sportswriter, has been selected by President Joe F. Carr of the NFL to referee the game here Sunday between the Chicago Cardinals and Packers at the City stadium. Jim Keefe, Milwaukee, will umpire while A.O. Iverson, former athletic director at Sheboygan high school, is to be the head linesman. All are veteran professional football officials. Fred Tulley, who writes a column in the Providence Bulletin, believes the Packers are in for a tough afternoon Sunday. Here's what he has to say: "It is a bit early for crucial frays in the 1930 professional football season but the game at Green Bay Sunday between the Packers, national champions, and Ernie Nevers' Chicago Cardinals has all the elements of a gridiron 'natural' if there ever was one...CARDS ARE STRONGER: "From what we hear, the Chicago club is stronger than last season as Nevers has added George Kenneally from the Boston Bulldogs, Howard Maple, an all-American quarterback, and a number of other topnotchers. We saw Maple play against New York U at the Polo grounds in 1928 and he was a whirlwind. My records show that Green Bay hasn't lost a league football game since Thanksgiving Day 1928 but I've got a hunch that if Nevers and Maple start clicking right, the Packers may start their chase for the 1930 bunting on the wrong foot." The Packers tapered off an extensive week of practice this morning and, according to Coach Lambeau, his team is ready for the Cardinal invasion. The past few days have seen a big improvement in the national champions' passing attack and it is likely that they will use the overhead game extensively Sunday...TICKETS SELLING FAST: The crowds at the daily practice sessions are increasing as fans are anxious to size up the players and the morale of the club. Every player looks to be in the park. The rush for tickets is picking up. Several places about town have sold out their first batch of tickets and have been furnished another supply. The Packer ticket office in the C.C.C. is doing good business as the mail orders have increased about 50 percent in the past two days. There is still a good supply of reserved seats on hand, however. Much interest is being shown in the pennant raising ceremonies following the announcement of the program, which provides for a gridiron march by the players; several appropriate selections by the band and brief remarks by Mayor John V. Diener, spokesmen for the NFL and Green Bay Football corporation officials.
PACKERS AND CARDINALS BATTLE SUNDAY
SEPTEMBER 20 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The long, winding road, beset with pitfalls but leading to the NFL championship, will lie ahead of the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Cardinals tomorrow as they start the fight to see who will stay on the main highway and
who will take the detour, from which it is hard to regain
the main arterial again. It is a grind that continues for
13 long weeks and will test the metal of the Green Bay
Football men as no other football campaign has done.
Champions in 1929, the Packers are sure to find every
team in the National league keying for them and eager 
to knock them off the path of another title. And the 
Chicago Cardinals will be no exceptions. Led by Ernie
Nevers, who has no equal as a fullback, the Chicago
eleven will present one of the strongest teams in the
nation. It is a well rounded squad with stars from every
section in the nation. Many are veteran professional
football players while others are newcomers but certain
to make places for themselves in the professional world.
..BEATEN THREE TIMES: Three time the Cards tasted
defeat by that great 1929 team and after every battle,
Nevers nearly wept in the dressing room after he had
given his all to stem the unmerciful tide. He has not
forgotten these setbacks and now with a stronger outfit
to help him carry on the fight he thinks he can 
accomplish what he could not do last year. Fighting
with Nevers will be such men as Flenniken, Mickey
McDonnell, Howard Maple, a great Pacific coast star,
Baker and Singleton in the backfield. On the line,
Kassell, always an ominous threat to the Packers,
Duke Slater, dean of all tackles, Wally Diehl, Erickson,
Kiesling, Blumer, Tinsley, Kenneally and other greats
and near greats, who know how to play the professional
game. It will be a lineup that will give Green  Bay a fight
that will long be remembered. But the Packers have a 
few football men themselves, who can compare with the
Cardinals best and have no intention of being stopped
by the Card players. They will present their strongest 
battle front and will have their air attack that carried
them to the championship last year, working with old
time precision. The overhead game has been stressed
in practice this week and as a result the timing has
improved and plays are clicking smoothly...START
STRONGEST LINEUP: Capt. E.L. Lambeau probably
will take no chances but will start his strongest lineup
against the invaders. Lining up on the front wall probably
will be Dilweg and O'Donnell or Nash at ends, Perry or
Sleight at one tackle and Hubbard at the other. 
Michalske and Bowdoin are the most logical guard
starters with Earpe or Darling at center. In the backfield,
Lewellen, Dunn, Blood or Englemann and one of three
fullbacks, McCrary, Lidberg, or Molenda, are expected
to get the call for most of the duty. The game will start
promptly at 2 o'clock after the flag raising ceremony,
scheduled for 1:45. The NFL 1929 championship banner
will be hoisted. Speakers will be Mayor John V. Diener
and officials of the Packers and National league.
PACKER OPEN SEASON
SEPTEMBER 20 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The
Packers, Green Bay's pride and job, open the football
championship race Sunday with the Chicago Cardinals.
Strange as it may seem, this first game may go a long
way toward deciding the 1930 national gridiron title, which the Packers so splendidly captured last fall, as the Cardinals are rated as one of the strongest teams in the league. The Green Bay team is facing a crucial year. Never in the history of professional football has a championship club ever repeated. However, the Packers have done the impossible several times during their brilliant career on the postgraduate football field and we have reason to believe that our great eleven will be right up there among the leaders again. The Packer management has all but four of the 1929 players back in uniform and the new material has shown considerable promise to date. We cannot picture any team better than last years' Packer squad, but the 1930 eleven looks equally as good and it will need to be, because every club in the NFL will be on its toes when meeting the champions. The action of the city council last Wednesday night speaks for itself. The citizens of Green Bay were urged to support the Packers as a civic pride and a community asset. Green Bay has never failed to get behind its team and this year with championship laurels to defense, we fell confident that the citizens will rally to greater heights than ever before in backing an organization that has placed Green Bay on the national sport map in capital letters. Community loyalty has done a lot toward putting the Packers high up in the professional football world. It is the old college spirit in a postgraduate form and win, lose or draw Green Bay will always be loyal to its Packers. Here's to success again in 1930.
CAHOON TO ANNOUNCE
SEPTEMBER 20 (Baraboo) - Ivan Cahoon, former Baraboo man will turn radio announcer Sunday. Mr. Cahoon formerly was with the Green Bay Packers, and he will announced their game with the Chicago Cardinals on Sunday over station WTMJ. Mr. Cahoon started the season with the Packers last year but an injury to his knee took him out of the game for the season and probably indefinitely. He is now coach at the West De Pere High School.
​PACKERS RAISE NATIONAL PRO LEAGUE PENNANT
SEPTEMBER 20 (Green Bay) - Ernie Nevers and his Chicago Cardinals lock horns with the Green Bay Packers here Sunday afternoon in the opening game of the National football season. Gridiron hostilities will start promptly at 2 p.m. A 10,000 crowd is looked for. This will be a red letter day in Green Bay's brilliant football history as the 1929 championship bunting will be raised with fitting ceremonies at the City Stadium. Invitations have been extended to league officials and club owners. Joe E. Carr, Columbus, president of the National league, is expected to be on hand to pay tribute to Coach Lambeau's great team of last year which went through the season without defeat. The Packers' first hurdle in the 1930 pennant is plenty tough and some of the pro football experts are predicting that if the Bays take Nevers and Co. into camp, they will be headed for another title winning year. Both clubs got off to a good start in their non-league skirmishes. Green Bay put the skids under Oshkosh 46-0, while the Chicagoans breezed through to a 30-0 victory over the Sturgis, Mich., eleven. These were but both aggregations looked plenty "hot". There is no question
but that the Cardinals are an improved machine this season. In 1929, the Chicagoans had a corking good line but Ernie Nevers lacked support in the backfield. However, this gall the big fullback will have assistance galore. Howard Maple, Chuck Belden, Ken Mercer and Bill Boyd are among the new backfielders and every one of these gridders are rated high. The Cardinals' veteran line is practically intact. Slater, Tinsley, Williams, Kiesling, Blumer and Kassel are back in the fold. Kenneally, veteran pro end, has been signed along with Randolph and Erickson, two first class centers. The national champions will be ready for the whistle. Aside from Cully Lidberg, who is having some ankle trouble, every man on the squad is physically O.K. Coach Lambeau may spring a surprise and start several of his youngsters, who burned up the gridiron in the Oshkosh game. A great line duel is forecast as the Packer forwards, Michalske, Hubbard, Bowdoin and Perry may meet their match in the front wall guardians of the Chicago club. Kiesling, crack Chicago guard, will be playing across the way from Michalske and there should be fur flying for yards around. The Green Bay management is all set to handle a bumper throng and fans from all parts of Wisconsin and upper Michigan are expected to be in hand for the gridiron classic.
