GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - The Packers staged a farewell home appearance party at the City stadium on "Coach Lambeau Day" here Sunday - as sensational and entertaining a football battle as you ever will see. It brought the Green Bay champions a 26 to 0 victory over the Staten Island club, and kept the Packers on top in their race for a fourth straight title in the NFL. Gaining momentum as the game progressed the Bays reached their peak in the third quarter. They repulsed the Stapes in every attempt to gain in the first half but couldn't click consistently on offense and the best they could do was six points, gained by a pass. In the third, however, it was a different story. The Packers began to function  and soon ripped, snorted and tore through the Stape wall to run up a commanding lead as the invaders were bushed. Towards the end of the game the Packers were gaining almost at will with a great forward passing game that kept the Stapes befuddled. They used several combinations of players, all with equal success.
HAS MANY STANDOUTS
There were many standouts in this game of sensations. Topping them all was Arnold Herber, fleet halfback who once ran wild on the gridiron at West high school. He punted, blocked, passed and roamed all over the field to turn in the greatest individual performance of brilliant football seen in many years. Herber threw passes that brought two touchdowns, intercepted a Stapleton toss to race 85 yards - the longest run in years - through a broken field for a third marker, besides performing other bits of excellent football. With him in the limelight were many players. Grove and O'Boyle at quarterback were outstanding. Johnny Blood played a whale of a game at halfback, while Clark Hinkle and Hurdis McCrary did everything called upon them to do with near perfection at the fullback position. Englemann, Lewellen and Hank Bruder also were good performers the short time they played. On the line every player who saw action could be mentioned for excellent defensive play. So well did the Packer front wall handle their jobs that the Stapes were able to gain only 38 yards from scrimmage and made only two first downs in the running game. The veterans, Jugger Earpe and Rudy Comstock, played the entire game at tackle and guard, respectively, and turned in excellent performances.
STAPES SELDOM ADVANCE
On only two occasions were the Stapes able to advance
beyond the 30 yard line, so badly were they outclassed.
Poor punting on the part of the Stapleton backs, due
largely to fast rushing Packer linemen who seldom gave
the kicker time to get set, had a lot to do with the
failure of Stapleton to make a better showing. Several
times the invaders tried to kick out from behind their 
own 10 yard line and never managed to boot the ball as
far as midfield. The Packers' punting game, on the other
hand, was excellent most of the time and helped keep
the play in Stapleton territory most of the time. The
Stapes' two ace backs, Ken Strong and Doug Wyckoff,
were completely smothered every time they tried to
break out. Neither was able to gain against the Packer
wall. Campiglio, at quarterback, was the outstanding
performed on the invading team. His return of punts and
other work was good but he got little help from his
mates. It took a new fistfight in the third period to get 
the Packers fighting mad and keyed to a pitch where
they would brook no resistance from the Stapes. Dick
Stahlman was the victim in the disturbance after he had
been hit by Ledbetter, Stapleton halfback, and swung
back. The mixup came after Herber's sensational dash
of 85 yards for a touchdown and Dick was sent out of
the game. After that the Stapes didn't have a chance 
and the Packers smashed down for two more markers.
PASS GAME GOOD
The outstanding cause for rejoicing as far as the Packer
offense was concerned was the return to form in the
overhead game. Seldom this year has the Packer
passing game been up to its usual standard. The pass
plays haven't been clicking as they should. Sunday,
however, it was a difference story and the passes 
worked as they did in other years. Eight times the Bays
completed passes, gaining 168 yards in the course of
the battle. It gave the Packers a 50 percent record for
the passing game as they tried 16. It was Herber who 
did most of the passing. Twice he passed to Dilweg for
gains. On other occasions he tossed to Nash, and
Grove, twice for touchdowns. Lewellen also looked good
on the throwing end of passes, tossing the ball to
Peterson and Englemann for long gains. On the pass
defense the Packers were as alert as ever. They
knocked down ten of 12 passes tried by the invaders.
One was completed for 23 yards and one for six. Two
were intercepted, both by Arnold Herber, who after 
racing 85 yards after catching the first pass, tore down
the field 45 yards when he intercepted a second toss.
START ATTACK EARLY
The Packers threatened in the first period but lacked 
the punch to push the ball over the goal after they had
smashed down to the three-yard line. A pass from 
Herber to Nash was good for a first down on the 20-yard
mark to start the advance. Blood picked up 13 yards on
three slices at the line but after Hinkle had placed the
ball on the three-yard line, the Stapes held and a fourth
down pass over the goal failed so the invaders took the
​ball on their own 20. A poor punt paved the way for the
first Packer touchdown in the second period. Hinton got
off the kick from near his own goal and it was downed
on the Stapleton 37-yard mark. The Packers were given
a first down for interference with Dilweg on a pass play
on the 30-yard line. Herber then dropped back on a 
screen pass play and as Grove raced out and to the 
right he shot a perfect spiral. Grove leaped into the air
to pull the ball out of Ledbetter's hands, dodged away
from the Stapleton player and ran five yards to score.
Hinkle's kick for the extra point was wide of the posts.
The Packers threatened again in the period when Ken
Strong fumbled on his own six-yard line and Stahlman
recovered for Green Bay. Hinkle plunged over left guard
to cross the goal but the play was recalled and the 
Packers penalized for offside. Two plays failed and
another, a pass to Dilweg, was just out of the big end's
reach over the goal and the Stapes took the ball on 
their own 20.
RASKOWSKI INTERCEPTS PASS
Early in the third period, Stapleton threatened when
Raskowski broke through the Packer line in midfield,
knocked down Blood's pass as it left his hand, caught
the ball and ran to the Packer 32-yard line before he 
was stopped. The Stapes showed a good offense to
advance the ball 10 yards and a first down but here the
march stopped. Clancy was thrown for a 14-yard loss
by Dilweg on a pass play. Then Clancy dropped back to
try another pas. It was intended for an end but Herber
came dashing from the rear, leaped into the air and 
pulled the ball down on the 15-yard line near the north
sidelines. He started a mad race down the field and the
Packers began to form interference. Stahlman cut in
front of him and mowed down one man to give him a 
start. Nash took out another player without leaving his
feet. Dilweg knocked into two of them. Herber then
sidestepped still another Stapleton man. Dick Stahlman 
continued to lead the way and Herber raced down the
field. Near the goal Stahlman took out Ledbetter with a
fine block and Herber crossed the line. Ledbetter got up
and punched Stahlman. Dick swung back but before 
any more trouble could develop, the pair was separated.
Grove then kicked for the extra point and the Packers
led, 13 to 0. The Packers were penalized 15 yards for
the disturbance so had to kick off from their 25-yard 
line. Campiglio returned the kick to midfield with a good
run but when the Stapes tried to pass. Herber again
leaped into the air, caught the ball on on his own 20
yard line and ran 45 yards before he was stopped on
the Stapleton 35. Hinkle picked up eight yards but a
penalty cost the Packers five.
HERBER IS RUSHED
Herber then dropped back to his 40-yard line on a pass
play. He was rushed but continued to hold the ball as
his receivers tried to get free. Grove was standing alone
on the 20-yard line so Herber tossed the ball to him. It
was a perfect pass and the quarterback did some great
stepping to dodge and pivot away from two Stapleton
players as he ran the remaining distance to the goal for
a touchdown. Grove then added another point with a 
placekick. A new set of backfield men came into the
game at this period and they took up where their
predecessors stopped. A poor Stapleton punt went out
of bounds on the Packer 43-yard line. Bruder ripped off
a 15-yard gain around right end to the 26-yard mark.
McCrary made it a first down with a 12-yard smash on
a spinner. Bruder found a hole at left guard for three
yards. McCrary sliced over to the eight-yard stripe. Englemann raced around right end for a first down on the six-yard mark. Then it was Bruder again for a yard and McCrary for two yards. Bruder took it again and pushed over left guard for a touchdown. O'Boyle's kick was wide of the posts. After an exchange of punts the Packers got the ball on their own 20-yard line and marched to the Stapleton 20 before they were stopped on some smooth spread passes. Frahm intercepted a toss on the five-yard mark a few minutes before the end of the game, however, to stop the parade.

NEWS AND NOTES
SIDELIGHTS

Kelly, former president of the club and a National league director, recalling briefly what Green Bay owes the coach for his work in making professional football a success here...Friends of Coach Lambeau presented him with a complete set of Bobby Jones golf clubs. The presentation was made by Dr. Kelly on behalf of the coach's friends and Coach Lambeau in thanking all for the gift paid tribute to the fans for loyal support of his team...It was homecoming day again with many former Packer players on the field between halves. Included in the group were H.J. Bero, Walter Ladrow, Andy Muldoon, Eddie Kotal, John Des Jardins, Al Petcka, N.P.

GREEN BAY BEGINS FOREIGN TRIP WITH BATTLE AT CHICAGO
NOVEMBER 1 (Green Bay) - In an effort to shake a jinx of two years' standing, the Green Bay Packers will leave for Chicago Saturday afternoon, the purpose of the trip being an invasion of Wrigley stadium, where Sunday afternoon the National league leaders and the Chicago Cardinals, still rated dangerous contenders, will meet. The Cardinals now roost in third place, one-half game behind Portsmouth, and another of those surprise victories over the Packers, such as the Cards have popularized during the past two seasons, will place the Chicagoans close to first place. Portsmouth, provided the Spartans do the expected and trounce Brooklyn, then would be even closer...WHAT HAPPENED IN 1930: The Cardinals caused the Packers to falter momentarily in their pennant dash of 1930, when the high flying Bays were dealt their first defeat of the season, 13 to 6, in the game at Chicago. The Packers quickly regained their stride and finished the season still on top of the National circuit. In 1931, however, with competition stiffer around the league, the Cardinals handed the Packers a staggering blow in the shape of a 20 to 13 trouncing, and for a short time Green Bay stock was being sold somewhat under par. Big Ernie Nevers from the fullback post showed the Bays how the Warner football system can operate, and as a result the champions were on the run almost from start to finish. Later in the season they pulled enough victories out of the fire to end on top, but the scare was one to be remembered...HOPE TO BREAK JINX: This year the Cards again are in a position to cause no end of trouble, but the Packers feel in better condition than before to break the two-year jinx. No injuries which might cause trouble were picked up in the Stapleton contest, although some X-ray pictures are being taken of Cal Hubbard's leg. Tom Nash and the other injured veterans are ready to start, if need be, and may get the call for consistent service. Their home games cleaned up without a break in the string of undefeated contests started on Oct. 7, 1928, the Packers now are concentrating on that long road trip which will not end until the Packers meet the Bears at Chicago, Dec. 11...LEAVE FOR EAST NOV. 10: After Sunday's game with the Cardinals, the Packers will return home for a few days of practice, before leaving for the east Nov. 10. On the following Sunday they will play Boston, and one week later invade the Polo grounds for a return battle with the Giants of New York. Thanksgiving find the champions at Brooklyn, and three days later they face Stapleton, before turning westward for a battle at Portsmouth Dec. 4. The Bear game Dec. 11 in Chicago will wind up the season...PETERSON LOANED TO STAPES: Lester Peterson, end, has been loaned to Stapleton for the remainder of the season, according to an announcement made today by Coach E.L. Lambeau of the Packers. Green Bay had been carrying five wingmen and it was necessary to cut the roster as Jugger Earpe was reinstated last Saturday and Milt Gantenbein's injured leg is again in shape. The league rules allow but 22 eligible players. Stapleton wanted to buy Peterson outright but Coach Lambeau frowned on this suggestion as he figures to bring Pete back for the 1933 season. Peterson has played some bang-up ball for the Packers this fall. This is his second year on the professional gridiron as he was with Portsmouth in 1931.
CHICAGO CARDINALS STRONGEST DEFENSIVE TEAM IN PRO LEAGUE
NOVEMBER 1 (New York) - The Chicago Cardinals are the strongest defensive team in the National Professional Football league, having yielded only 756 yards in five games. Stapleton's eleven continues to set the pace as the leading ground gainer with 1,406 yards, while Green Bay, unbeated league leader, has scored the most points, 84. The New York Giants are showing the way in forward passing with 42 completed tosses in 96 attempts.
CARDS EXPECT TO BEAT BAYS IN GRID GAME
NOVEMBER 2 (Chicago) - Practically unscathed in turning back Benny Friedman's Brooklyn Dodgers, 27 to 7, last Sunday, the Chicago Cardinals of Jack Chevigny resumed practice sessions Tuesday in preparation for the impending invasion of the Green Bay Packers. The Cards and Packers face each other at Wrigley field Sunday afternoon, in a contest which will go a long ways toward deciding the eventual holders of first position in the National league. The Cardinals have lost but a single game, and by upsetting the Bays, will climb within striking distance of first place...WON AT CHICAGO: Tradition favors the home team Sunday, as the past two years have seen upsets for Green Bay by the Cards on their home field. In 1930, the Cards jolted the Packers, 13 to 6, when the clubs battled at White Sox park. Last year's 20 to 13 trimming, administered by Ernie Nevers and his men at Wrigley field in midseason, is so well recalled by football fans here that a large crowd is preparing for Sunday's game. If the weather is favorable, a 15,000 crowd is estimated by Dr. David J. Jones, owner of the Cardinals. Recent publicity given the Packers in several national publications has served to whet the curiosity of Chicagoans who have never seen the national champions in action. What's more, reports from Wisconsin carry the news that, as usual, a big delegation of Packer fans will follow the team here. Chevigny, who has built up an entirely new system with his Cardinal squad, experiencing success, will have his full force of backfield talent to use against the Packers, including Simas, Martin, Sheely, Holm, Holmer, Lillard, Malloy and Hill...LILLARD IS STAR: Lillard, the Cards' new colored backfield ace, will be getting his first glimpse of the Packers, although he knows the team well by reputation. His teammates during the past few weeks have been versing him in the Green Bay style of play, so that the dusky star may be used as an "ace in the hole" - probably the ace of spades - against the Bays. Although they have been tied twice in the National league this season, the only team which has been able to upset the Cardinals is the Packers, who turned the trick at Green Bay, Sept. 18, by a 15 to 7 score. Coach Chevigny and his players figure that bad breaks of the game were responsible that the traditional Packer jinx at Wrigley field will reassert itself Sunday in plenty of time to assure a Chicago victory.
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORTS - GRANGE-ON FOOTBALL
NOVEMBER 2 (Green Bay) - Cal Hubbard - the greatest tackle Red Grange has ever seen; Lavvie Dilweg - the toughest end he ever met, in college or out; the Green Bay Packers - the world's smartest football team. There's a tribute for you. Tribute from the greatest Big Ten football star of the decade - Harold (Red) Grange. The former Illinois halfback, who now performs with the Chicago Bears in the National league, has quite a bit to say in this week's issue of the Saturday Evening Post. In a copyrighted story by Grange with George Dunscomb, the professional and college games are compared. Grange has some interesting comment about Green Bay. We thought the article quite interesting so are reprinting excerpts from it. Quoting Grange in the Saturday Evening Post: "I believe the college eleven would have little, if any, chance of winning. I add that the professionals' margin of victory should be more than one touchdown. So saying, I bare my reddish locks to the storms of criticism which will fall on my head. That belief in pro superiority isn't prompted by commercial loyalty to the business which still yields an excellent living for me. It is grounded on the experience of three years of comparative skylarking on college gridirons and six bruising years in professional football. A fanatical desire to win and the inspiration of a coach won't take a halfback over, around or through a hard, fast line which averages 220 pounds from end to end. That's what you face when you like up against the Green Bay Packers, for example. The greatest tackle I've ever seen - or been pulverized by - is Cal Hubbard of Green Bay, who is nearly six and a half feet high and weighs 270 pounds. I've often wondered how many foot pounds of pressure he develops when, traveling at full speed, he smashes into a halfback. This might be determined by an experiment to which I would gladly contribute my services - as a spectator, not as the halfback. I cite those statistics as evidence of the kind of resistance a college team would meet in its progress toward the goal line of the professionals. No college forward wall is going to open many holes in that kind of line. No blocking halfback is going to take out or drive in big crafty ends like Luke Johnsos, formerly of Northwestern, now with the Chicago Bears, or Verne Dilweg, Marquette's former star, now with the Packers. The latter is the toughest end I've ever met, in college or out. You simply can't run around him. Sure, you can make a twenty-yard run - toward the sidelines. But start toward the goal line and you meet that villain Dilweg, big as life and twice as real. Once in four or five blue moons you may cut inside of him. Incidentally, the toughest, most alert end I encountered in my college career was Fritz Crisler, of Chicago, now head coach at Princeton...Perhaps the best description of the defense which the Green Bay Packers developed to meet our attack in 1931 will indicate more clearly the kind of smart football the pros play. When we met the Green Bay Packers, whom I consider the world's smartest football team, it was a different story. They played a six-man line on defense and stationed a giant lineman, August Michalske, of Penn State, just back of the line of scrimmage, giving him one single job. On every play in which either the right half, Joe Lintzenich, or I cracked into the line, Michalske tackled the man, regardless of whether or not he had the ball. Naturally, it spoiled our party, so we took time out for hasty, impromptu consideration of ways and means to confound Mr. Michalske. We decided that both Lintzenich and I should crack into the line on each play, giving Michalske a choice of tackling either of two men running about twenty feet apart. On the second play after we put this plan into effect, Michalske tackled me with unusual vigor, even for him. As he yanked me to my feet, he growled, 'Make up your minds, you birds. I can't multiply myself and I'm not twins, you know.' Most college teams do things according to Hoyle. But when you play against the Green Bay Packers, you don't know what to expect next.
GROSSMAN SET PACE
NOVEMBER 2 (Columbus, OH) - Merrily the battle for
the individual scoring honors in the National league 
goes on between Jack Grossman, Brooklyn halfback,
and Dutch Clark, Portsmouth ace quarterback. This
week it was Grossman's turn to score and with one
touchdown against the Cardinals, took the lead with 30
points. Clark follows with 25 points. Hill of the Cardinals
took a jump with two touchdowns and two extra points
to hop into third place with 21 markers. Hank Bruder of
the Packers, by adding another touchdown to his list,
now is fourth with 18 points. Roger Grove, Packers,
follows in fifth position with two touchdowns and two 
extra points, all scored at the expense of the Stapleton
team. The rest of the field is pretty well spread out with
numerous ties for positions.
HOLMER'S SKILL AT PASSING MAY WIN FOR
CARDS
NOVEMBER 2 (Chicago) - Walt Holmer of the Chicago
Cardinals has developed into one of the NFL's best
passers and should be a constant threat to the Green
Bay Packers at Wrigley field Sunday afternoon. In the
game with Brooklyn last Sunday Holmer tossed five of
the eight forward passes that were completed. Sixteen
were attempted. The Cards are devoting considerable
time to passing this week. The outstanding back for the
Cards was Glenn Martin, who came to the league this
season from Southern Illinois Teachers' college. Martin
played the entire Brooklyn game at left halfback and
carried the ball 17 times for a net gain of 122 yards or 
an average of 7.1 yards..GLENN CAN CATCH PASSES:
He caught three of the eight completed forward passes
and made himself conspicuous generally in blocking
and tackling. Martin weighs 185 pounds and is 23 years
old. Irvin Hilt at fullback carried the ball six times for an
average gain of 10.6 yards, one of his thrusts resulting
in a touchdown. Holmer contributed generously to the Cardinal yardage by carrying the ball 16 times for an average of 4.3 yards...CARDS SENT VICTORY: In view of what transpired in the first meeting of the Cardinals and Packers, in which the former made 12 first downs to three for Green Bay, the Cards believe they have a good chance of handing the league champions their first defeat of the year.
PROFESSIONAL FRESHMEN IN STAR ROLES WITH
PACKERS
NOVEMBER 2 (Green Bay) - It is seldom that a college player makes good in the "pro" game his first year, but the Green Bay Packers, three times champions of the National Football League, have picked up two gridiron performers right from the "rah-rah" ranks, and they promise to be stars before the season ends in December. They are Clark Hinkle, all-American fullback at Bucknell University last year, and Joseph Zeller, All-Conference guard from the University of Indiana. Both men were captains. Red Grange, the greatest ball carrier the game has known, was a "washout" during his first year in pro ball, but not Clark Hinkle. The Bucknell fullback, who weighs 205 pounds, has won a home in Green Bay by his work in the first five or six games of the season and there is every indication that he will be one of the regulars in the Packer lineup for some time to come. Hinkle not only is a great ball carrier and defensive player, but is leading the league in punting. It appears Coach Curly Lambeau has found a worthy successor to the great Verne Lewellen, formerly of Nebraska, who has been doing the team's punting for eight season. Lewellen, regarded by football experts as the greatest kicker in football's history, averaged from 65 70 yards during his heyday. Lewellen, still with the Packers, is playing bangup football. Zeller, weighing 198 pounds, is an aggressive guard, fast and a good man in interference. The Packers had signed up Herman Hickman, All-America guard from Tennessee in 1931, but he was injured while wrestling. The Packers haven't even missed him because Zeller has "made good" in a big way. Zeller gets down under the punts almost as quickly as an end and he is a sure tackler. Captain Lambeau is proud of these two funds, for the usual college player is of very little value in the post-graduate game the first year, no matter how good he may have been when he played for his alma mater.
PACKERS CONSIDER CARDINAL GAME AS CRUCIAL ENCOUNTER
NOVEMBER 3 (Green Bay) - There may be a more crucial game on the Packers' schedule than next Sunday's tilt with the Cardinals at Chicago, but the average fan would have a lot of trouble convincing Coach E.L. Lambeau that such is the cause. The national champions, undefeated in seven games, do not discount the threats which will come later in the season for Portsmouth, the Bears and others, but cannot overlook the fact that a defeat at Chicago Sunday will deal the Green Bay contenders a staggering blow in their race for titular honors...PORTSMOUTH SHOULD WIN: Unless Benny Friedman is enraged by his recent criticism for "walking out" of the Cardinal-Dodger game last week, Portsmouth should have small trouble in defeating the Dodgers next Sunday, even on the eastern club's field. If the Cardinals reassert their jinx of two years' standing and whip the Packers, the standings, coupled with a Portsmouth win over Brooklyn and the Bears triumphant against the Giants in New York, will be as follows:
               W  L  T  .PCT
Green Bay      6  1  2  .857
Portsmouth     4  1  2  .800
Chicago Cards  3  1  2  .750
Chicago Bears  2  1  4  .667
This would leave the Chicago Cardinal team in a commanding position, with the Packer threat to them eliminated for the rest of the season. It would place the Portsmouth Spartans, however, in a much better position, as the Spartans have a much easier time ahead than the Packers...OTHER HARD CONTEST: Green Bay, after the Cardinal game, still must face Boston, New York, Brooklyn, Stapleton, Portsmouth and the Chicago Bears in that order. The Spartans have only to play a home and home series with the Bears, in which they are likely to break even, and one game with Boston before their final tilt with the Packers at Portsmouth Dec. 4. This combination of circumstances makes it almost imperative that the Packers take the Cardinals in their stride Sunday, thus remaining undefeated at the top of the National league. The eastern clubs, all but Boston, having been trounced at Green Bay, may be expected to show no mercy to the Wisconsin invaders, who will be crowding four games into a period of 15 days. With the Cardinals and Spartans both apparently settled in winning streaks, and both marking time until the Packers are defeated, the magnitude of a single defeat at this stage for Green Bay looms large and impressive...NO MORE IMPORTANT GAME: "There is no more important game left on our schedule than Sunday's game with the Cardinals," asserted Coach Lambeau, "and we are preparing to give them every trick of the trade in order to pull out on top. The Packers, undefeated, are to face a terrific pummeling at the hands of the eastern teams, and a repetition on the Cardinal jinx Sunday will seriously handicap us in our eastern invasion." The Cardinals, by defeating the Packers Sunday, have a splendid opportunity to climb into second place, providing Friedman's Brooklyn team does the unexpected and upsets Portsmouth. If this series of events take place and the Bears whip New York, the standings will be as follows:
              W  L  T  .PCT
Green Bay     6  1  1  .857
Chicago Cards 3  1  2  .750
Chicago Bears 2  1  4  .667
Portsmouth    3  2  2  .600
CARDS GO EAST AGAIN: On Nov. 13, the Cardinals play in Brooklyn and a week later face in Stapes in Staten Island. They return home for a Thanksgiving Day engagement with the Bears and the Sunday after, Nov. 27, Boston faced Chevigny's team at Wrigley field. A week from Sunday, Nov. 13, Portsmouth has it our with the Bears in Chicago. Then the Spartans return home and meet Boston Nov. 20. Portsmouth has no league game scheduled for Thanksgiving but the following Sunday they are at home to the Bears. The Packers play in Portsmouth on Dec. 4. After Sunday's game in New York, the Chicago Bears have six games to play and five of them are at Wrigley field. The Halas-men play Portsmouth in Chicago, Nov. 13; Brooklyn meets the Bears in the Windy City Nov. 20 and Thanksgiving Day the civic gridiron feud with the Cardinals is resumed. On Nov. 27, the Bears invade Portsmouth. A week later, they are at home to the New York Giants and on Dec. 11 finished up the season with the Packers.
CARDS STRESS PUNTING FOR PACKER GAME
NOVEMBER 3 (Chicago) - Coach Jack Chevigny is stressing individual instruction for the Cardinals this week in preparation for the game with the Green Bay Packers at Wrigley field Sunday. Walt Holmer, who played impressively against Brooklyn, wasn't quite up to his usual standard in punting. He wasn't hurried because the Cardinal line operated effectively. Holmer was called upon to kick five times and averaged under 40 yards, which isn't good enough to compete with the punts usually produced by Verne Lewellen of the Packers. Lewellen, who is playing his ninth year with Green Bay, is one of the greatest punters in the National league and in addition to him the visitors will have Clark Hinkle, who is playing his first season in the league. Hinkle came from Bucknell with a reputation as a punter. Under the direction of Coach Curly Lambeau, he has improved until he now rates with the top notchers in the league. With this in mid, Chevigny has Holmer putting in considerable time to come out of his slump. Tony Holm also is getting some instruction in punting. He got off two kicks in last Sunday's game for an average of only 36 yards, which isn't National league standard.
PACKERS LEAVE SATURDAY FOR CHICAGO TILT
NOVEMBER 4 (Green Bay) - Determined to shake the
jinx which has followed them for the last two seasons in
Chicago when playing the Cardinals, Coach Lambeau
and his Packer football squad have been working at top
speed all week for the Windy City invasion. The team is
in good physical shape, with but one or two exceptions,
every man on the squad in in the pink to make things
mighty interesting for Jack Chevigny's outfit, which now
looms as one of the best spokes in the football wheel...
GAME STARTS AT 2:15 P.M.: The Packers leave for 
the Cardinal game at 12:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon,
riding in a special car on the Milwaukee road. The Bays
will reach Chicago at 5:45 o'clock, and as usual, will
make their headquarters at the Knickerbocker hotel.
The game will commence at 2;15 p.m. Sunday. As in
the first game between the rival clubs this season, 
which the Packers won, 15 to 7, Sunday's battle will
bring together two teams playing the Notre Dame system, or something very like it. The Cardinals, coached by Jack Chevigny, former Irish star, use the Rockne style of play in its best form, while the Packers, under Curly Lambeau, have adopted the Notre Dame system to conform to the needs of professional football...STAR ENDS TO PLAY: As always in a Cardinal-Packer game, the work of the ends is certain to be outstanding. The powerful set of Packer wingmen, including Dilweg, Nash, Gantenbein and Rose, will be braced against three great ends, in Kassell, Creighton and Rogge. There will be a battle among all-Americans at the pivot post, with Nate Barrager, Packer center who once served at Southern California, facing two other members of mythical elevens, Mike McNally of St. Mary's and Tim Moynihan of Notre Dame...LAWRIE TO REFERE: George Lawrie, who has worked a number of games at the City stadium this season, will referee the Cardinal game. Gordon McNitt, Milwaukee, a former Marquette end, has drawn the umpire's assignment while as usual, Wilfred Smith, Chicago sport scribe, will be the head linesman. Both the Milwaukee Road and the Northwestern are running football excursions over the weekend and it is expected that a big delegation of Green Bay fans will be at Wrigley field.
BAYS BEST SCORING TEAM
NOVEMBER 4 (Columbus, OH) - Counting four more touchdowns and two more points after touchdown, the Green Bay Packers increased their scoring lead over the rest of the National league field when they walloped Stapleton Sunday by a 26-0 count. The Packers now boast a total of 84 points and are followed by the Chicago Cardinals and the Portsmouth Spartans who are tied with 50 points each. The Cards hold an edge, however, as they have played one less game than the Ohio team. The Chicago Bears still hold their lead as the best defensive team as they have allowed their opponents to score only 16 points in six games. The Packers have allowed their opponents only 17 points in seven games. Stapleton is the poorest defensive team in the league according to the scoring table as his New York island team has allowed its opponents 86 points in seven games.
CARDS RELY ON SPEED, PASSING IN PACKER GAME
NOVEMBER 4 (Chicago) - Fair weather and a fast field are the hopes of the Chicago Cardinals in their game with the league leading Green Bay Packers at Wrigley field Sunday. The Cards have several reasons for desiring ideal conditions, but the chief ones are the speed of Joe Lillard and the passing ability of the whole backfield. Holmer, Lillard and Sheely all are adept passers, and Martin, Rogge, Kassel and Creighton are equally proficient on the receiving end. Coach Jack Chevigny is counting first on the open field running of Lillard, who will be facing the league champions for the first time in his brief professional career...IF JOE FAILS, THEY PASS: If the strong Packers line succeeds in battling the fleet Negro, the Cards will fall back on their aerial attack, which has been given special attention in every practice session this week. Because of their showing against the Packers in their first meeting of the year and the sustained power displayed against the Brooklyn Dodgers last Sunday, the Cards are confident of evening accounts for the year. In that early game the Chicagoans outgained the champs from scrimmage...GOOD NEWS FOR THE CUSTOMERS: Because so many of the patrons at last Sunday's game were disappointed at the non-appearance of Benny Friedman, Dr. Ralph Jones, owner of he Cardinals, announced yesterday that any who feel they did not receive their money's worth may obtain free tickets to next Sunday's game. Ticket stubs for the game with the Dodgers should be mailed to the Cardinals at the Wrigley field ticket office and should reach there not later than tomorrow noon. For each stub received a ticket for the Packer contest will be available at the grandstand box office Sunday.
PACKERS OPEN ROAD TOUR WITH CHICAGO CARDS
NOVEMBER 5 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers, their home season completed with a record of six victories and one tie game against National professional football league opposition, left Saturday for Chicago, where Sunday afternoon they will play the second of their two-game series with the Cardinals. In the first contest between the contending clubs, the Bays were victorious, 15 to 7, by capitalizing on an unusual set of breaks and by playing smart, hard football throughout. This is the only defeat sustained by the Cardinals to date, and the Chicagoans expect to hitch themselves one rung nearer first place with an upset decision Sunday. Tradition favors the home team, as for the past two years the Packers have been trimmed by the Cards at Wrigley Field. In the last two years, however, it was Ernie Nevers and the Warner system which turned the trick; next Sunday Coach Jack Chevigny's squad will give the Packers another taste of the Notre Dame style of play. The Packers also use a much adapted form of the Rockne system, so that the great style of football will be used by both teams at Wrigley Field Sunday. The Bays will bring their complete backfield strength to Chicago, including Grove and O'Boyle at quarterback; Blood, Bruder, Lewellen, Herber and Englemann at halfback; Hinkle and McCrary at fullback.
PACKERS TRAVEL TO CHICAGO FOR GAME
NOVEMBER 5 (Chicago) - Green Bay's Packers reach
the crossroad in the NFL race at Wrigley field, Chicago,
Sunday. If they can upset the Cards, something they
haven't been able to do in Chicago since 1929, they will
remain on the main highway leading to a fourth straight
National league pennant. If they are upset, they will join
three other squads, all fighting for the right-away down
the home stretch. Indications are that Sunday's game
will be the hardest fought of the year. When the Cards
 came here for the opening game of the season against
the Packers, Green Bay had all it could turning back
the invaders. The Cards outgained the Bays but failed
when scoring opportunities were present. Since that
time the Cards have not been defeated. They have
improved every week and now present one of the best
balanced teams in the circuit...GOOD BACKFIELD
MEN: Coach Chevigny, former Notre Dame backfield
director, has a group of backfield men as good as any
in the NFL. In Joe Lillard, colored back from the Pacific
coast, he was a triple threat performer. Walt Holmer,
formerly of Northwestern, Dexter Shelly, who was with
the Packers the start of the season, Martin, Holm and
Simas are other capable ball carriers and blockers who
perform with the Chicagoans. The Card line is studded
with big tough players. The veterans, Gordon, Kiesling,
Tinsley, McNally and Kassel, have plenty of power and
should be able to hold their own against Green Bay
stalwarts. Creighton at an end also has considerable
experience, and is always dangerous. Moynihan,
Handler and Steinbach are others, who can be used to
bolster the wall. The Packers are sure to have plenty of
trouble stopping the Cardinal passing attack as Coach
Chevigny has developed several plays that have been
working smoothly in recent games. He also has some
fast running plays with fleet ball carriers ready to split
through the line on quick opening bucks...IN GOOD
CONDITION: Green Bay's team is in good condition for
the fray and all veterans, with the exception of Hubbard,
will be ready for action. Hubbard is still suffering with an
injured knee and may not be in shape to start. Jugger
Earpe, Stahlman and Perry, the other tackles, are in
good condition, however, and should be able to carry
the load. Milt Gantenbein, end, will be back in the game
again after a layoff of three weeks due to a bad leg.
Zeller, guard, also has recovered from injuries that
handicapped him for two weeks. Coach E.L. Lambeau
is expected to start his fastest backfield men in an 
attempt to get the jump on the Cards. Forward passes
are sure to play an important part of the team's attack 
as they have been working smooth in practice recently.
The Packers left at noon over the Milwaukee road for Chicago. They will headquarter at the Knickerbocker hotel and return to Green Bay Monday morning, remaining here until Thursday when they start their annual eastern invasion. Several hundred fans from Green Bay and other Wisconsin cities are planning to follow the team to the Windy City. The Milwaukee and Northwestern roads are running special trains.
PRO GRID NOTES
NOVEMBER 5 (Green Bay) - Immediately after the Green Bay game, Dan Blaine, owner of the Stapleton club, ordered a shake up. Allen Teeter, Minnesota end, was released and a deal was made with the Packer management for Lester Peterson, Texas wingmen...The officials were tooting their whistle frequently in the Brooklyn-Chicago Cards encounter. The Dodgers even lost 15 yards for coaching from the bench while the Chicagoans were penalized frequently for offside...Nate Grossman, ex-Rutgers flash who is burning up the gridiron for Brooklyn, is leading the individual score makers in the National league with 30 points. Dutch 
Green Bay Packers (6-0-1) 26, Stapleton Stapes (1-4-2) 0
​Sunday October 30th 1932 (at Green Bay)
Clark, Portsmouth quarterback, is second in line with 25...Green Bay has completed its season at home without a reversal. Not since Oct. 7, 1928 has Lambeau's eleven tasted defeat on their home lot. In this period, 30 victories have been chalked and there were two tie encounters...Professional football is going over in a big way in Boston. Each Sunday sees an increased attendance and Owner George P. Marshall is more than satisfied with his venture. Lud Wray has his Braves playing bang up football...One of the features of the Chicago Cardinals' play this season has been the outstanding performances of the two centers, Mike McNally and Tim Moynihan, a former Notre Dame luminary. McNally was all-American pro center in 1931...Bruce Jones, an Alabama product, is filling the bill nicely in a guard position for Brooklyn. Jones played with Green Bay four years ago and then retired from the gridiron. He came back this fall and his layoff didn't harm him...New York nearly snatched the Portsmouth game out of the fire in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter. Steve Owens' club took to the air and twice they had the ball inside the aggressive Spartans' 20-yard line...Halfback Hill is piling up considerable yardage for the Chicago Cards. he is a hard runner with a deceptive change of pace and always picks his holes nicely. The crack backfielder also is right at home kicking the goals...Ernie Pinckert has returned to the Boston battlefront after being on the shelf with an injured jaw. The California ace showed lots of class in the tilt with the Bears and may be he has found his collegiate stride after all...Intrieri, center for Stapleton, is making a successful debut in professional football. Next to Tony Siano of Boston, he is probably the smallest center in the league but he is showing lots of beef and gives the big fellows trouble...Jack Hagerty and Maurice Dubofsky, two of the New York Giants' stars, have returned to their alma mater, Georgetown, and taken over the football coaching duties in place of Tommy Mills, former Rockne aid, who resigned the job...Portsmouth is getting some great end play from Ebding and McKalip. These wings are both "60 minute" men. Both are good receivers of forward passes and with Clark doing the tossing, this combination is always a constant threat...The Chicago Bears will make their annual appearance in New York Sunday. The Giants are keying up for this conflict and it should be a ding dong battle as both clubs need a victory badly to get back into the championship race...Stapleton is to exhibit its gridiron wares in Boston. The Islanders have been in a slump for two weeks but that may find themselves in time to make the going tough for the Braves. New faces are to appear in the Stapes' lineup...After suffering three upsets on their western invasion (one an exhibition game), Brooklyn returns to its home lot for a tussle with Portsmouth. The Dodgers will have to play much improved ball if they expect to take the Spartans.
CARDINALS WAIT SUPREME TEST IN PACKER GAME
NOVEMBER 5 (Chicago) - If the Cardinals lose their battle with the Green Bay Packers at Wrigley field tomorrow afternoon, they will have no alibis to offer. Every member of the squad is in condition, and an average of four hours daily has been spent this week in preparation for the Cards' bid for second place in the National pro league standings. The club, now in third position, will ascend to the runnerup berth if it turns back the champions and the Portsmouth Spartans, holders of second place, lose...VENGEANCE IS MOTIVE: The desire to improve their status, however, is secondary to another motive which has spurred the Cards through their hardest work of drills. They hope to get even with the Packers for a 15 to 7 setback at Green Bay in the opening game of the season. "Given just half of the breaks, we should hand the champs their first defeat of the year," Coach Jack Chevigny said yesterday. "We outgained them from scrimmage in that first meeting and had an advantage in all other departments, except the scoring of points. With our improved passing attack and the speed of Lillard, anything can happen."...GORDON VS. EARPE AT TACKLE: Lou Gordon, Cardinal tackle, whose play has been outstanding all season, will put his 220 pounds against the power of Jugger Earpe, 257 pound Packer veteran, who at 35 years of age is engaged in his 11th season of continuous service with the champions. Their duel should be worth watching.
BAYS AT CROSSROADS IN CARD TILT TODAY
NOVEMBER 6 (Chicago) - The Green Bay Packers reach the crossroads of their quest for their fourth straight National Professional Football league pennant Sunday at Wrigley Field, Chicago, against Jack Chevigny's Chicago Cardinals. During the last two campaigns the Packers went into Chicago for their second meeting with the Cards unbeaten, only to see the Cards, led by the redoubtable Ernie Nevers, check their winning streak with a dazzling display of football. This year the great Ernie is gone - back to Stanford where he is helping Pop Warner coach his alma mater - but Chevigny has stepped into the breach with a lineup that exhibits more all around class than that coached by Nevers. The Chicago entry lost to the Bays, 13 to 7, in the first league game of the season at Green Bay, but since then have gone on to bigger and better things, showing among other qualities, the tightest defense in the whole league as far as yards gained by opponents go. This staunch defense, coupled with the loss of effectiveness in the Bay attack, at least from the standard of other years, should make the game a decided tossup. With the Giants, Bears, Boston, Brooklyn, Stapleton and Portmouth Spartans still on the schedule, the Packers, even though they now hold a two game lead, must win Sunday's tilt to stand an even chance of annexing their fourth crown in a row. Even then the title road of the champions will be extremely difficult owing to the fact they must play four games in two weeks in the East and against teams that will be primed for the kill. The Packers should be in the best condition of weeks for the fray. Cal Hubbard, although injured last week, is reported to be back in form, while Milt Gantenbein, out some weeks, will be in uniform and set for the Cardinals. Clark Hinkle, too, has fully recovered from the face injury he received in the Bear game, while other players who were more or less banged up are back in good condition. A pleasing note in the Packer offensive is the fine playing ability of Arnie Herber, who has stepped into the passing shoes held by Red Dunn in other title campaigns. Herber, although playing halfback, has been used on pass plays from any and all offensive position, including the quarterback post at which he shows skills in heaving the Bay screen pass, so effectively used by Dunn, fading back nicely behind his running interference and shooting the ball with unerring accuracy. It was his passing and general all around effectiveness that completed the Stapleton rout last Sunday. Hank Bruder, who has favored an injured leg all season and has been used sparingly in hope of getting the injured member back in form for the tough games to come, reports he's ready.
