GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(NEW YORK) - Lady Luck failed again to smile on the
Packers and Coach Lambeau's gridders came off on the
short end of a 17 to 6 score in a game with the New
York Giants at the Polo Grounds here Sunday afternoon
before a disappointing crowd of less than 12,000 paid
spectators. From a football point of view, it was quite a
ball game and the fans were treated to a succession of
thrills which kept them on the uneasy seat from start to
finish. The jinx which has camped on the Bays' trail
since the season started was again very much in 
evidence. Breaks of the game paved the way for both 
the Giants' touchdowns, while Ken Strong's field goal
was of the hairline variety and could have been called
either way. As a matter of fact, the Packers protested
violently when Referee Tom Thorpe raised his hands
signifying it was O.K.
STRONG ADDS POINT
Bad break No. 1 for the Packers came about midway in
the first quarter. Green Bay was deep in Giant territory
and it looked as if Steve Owens' clan was on the run.
Out of nowhere Burnett bobbed up on the horizon near
his 15 yard line, grabbed a pass from Herber and never
stopped running until he crossed the goal line 85 yards
down the field. En route, he sidestepped a half dozen
Bayites who attempted to take a fall out of him. As is
customary, Ken Strong booted the cowhide between the
uprights. This former Stapleton ace is Deadeye Dick
when it comes to adding the extra point. Bad break No.
2 came with the third quarter about four minutes old.
The Packers had been backed up in their own backyard
by a parade of missed signals and some other school
boy performances in the backfield. Hinkle was rushed
fast on a punt and he only booted out of bounds on the
Bays' 36 yard line. The Giants turned on some steam
and soon had the ball on the Bay 20. Then Newman
tossed one to Burnett. Clark Hinkle came up fast and
batted the ball from Burnett, only to have it fall into
Badgro's arms and he proceeded to fall over the goal
line. It was just football one of those things that add to
the uncertainty (and grief) of an encounter. The other
New York score came from fast thinking on the part of
the Giants, soon after in the same stanza. The Giants'
fast charging line had pushed the Bays deep into their
own territory, and Hinkle again was forced to boot from
the end zone. The punt wasn't so hot, and Burnett,
surrounded by Packers, signaled for a free catch on the
Green Bay 30 yard stripe. There wasn't trouble for 
Strong to come through with a three point boot.
MISS GOLDEN CHANCE
Early in the game the Packers had several golden
opportunities to break the ice after covering New York
fumbles inside the 30 yard sector. But the offense did
seem unable to get going right and both touchdown
bubbles burst in the air, one with reverse English, for a
New York six pointer. After New York had completed its
scoring for the day, the Packers found themselves and
gained considerable yardage. Buckets Goldenberg had
not been in the game five minutes before he electrified
the crowd with a 50 yard dash down the field to New
York's 13 yard line. Buckets got loose from a straight
formation and he seemed to gain speed en route. For a
time, it looked as if he was going to Touchdownville but
his progress was halted by a savage tackle only a few
yards away. When the loudspeaker announced that it
was Goldenberg who made the long run, the stands
rocked with applause. Jewish boys are mighty popular
in this Broadway sector. There only minutes to go when
the Packers launched a drive that resulted in their only
touchdown of the combat. Starting on their own 30, the
Bays took to the overhead drive and the yard sticks 
moved along quickly. The Packers' two last tosses were
"honeys". Herber zipped one to Hank Bruder, who 
leaped into the air (and the arms of two Giants as well)
to make the catch and then Milt Gantenbein made a
diving snag of a bullet like peg for the touchdown. It was
a brilliant piece of footballing and even the partisan
Gothan throng gave the Wisconsin boys quite a hand.
Due to Blood's suspension and Monnett's leg muscle
injury, Coach Lambeau didn't have much leeway in
juggling his backfield. Hank Bruder came through nicely
in a pinch and Roger Grove stood up under a terrible
battering until the middle of the final frame. Cal Hubbard,
Red Bultman and Gantenbein were the "60 minute men"
for Green Bay. 
WEATHER IS PERFECT
Weather conditions were perfect for the game as there
was hardly a cloud in the sky. If anything, it was a trifle
warm for football when the fracas started because a
thermometer in a sun spot near the playing field showed
nearly 68. However, it cooled off quickly and darkness
seemed to dart over the enclosure in the closing quarter.
Light in the stands were turned on and the big red exit
signs beamed forth like beacons in the fog. The Giant
management staged a double show between halves. At
one end of the field was a contest between a couple of
midget teams while at the other end zone high school
stars participated in a dropkicking contest. A number of
sports dignitaries were grouped on the Packer bench.
At times they seemed to catch the spirit of things and
there was a bit of backslapping when the Bays began 
to act as if they were going to do something. When the
last whistle blew and it was all over but the shouting,
Jimmy Crowley walked off the field with Coach Lambeau
and the Fordham mentor looked just as much "down in
the boots" as the Green Bay pilot.
PACKERS KICK OFF
The Packers opened hostilities by kicking off to the
Giants, who defended the outfield end of the gridiron.
Starting from their own 39, the Giants made nine yards
in three plays and then Strong punted and the Packers
started scrimmaging on their 19. Two rushes netted but
four yards and Hinkle got off a boot which Newman took
and was dumped near the 27 yard mark. New York fumbled and Joe Kurth hopped on the apple like a hot potato. It was the Packers' ball and the goal line was only 26 yards away. Herber got a couple and Hinkle made but three in two thrusts. Hinkle failed on a placekick and the Giants put the ball in play on their own 20. After a pass fizzled, Strong booted to Grove in midfield. Herber picked up a yard. Strong intercepted a Packer pass but fumbled when cut down by Comstock and Rudy regained the apple for the Bays on the Giants' 29. Herber got a couple and Bruder picked up three. Burnett then broke into the limelight by intercepting a toss by Herber and he hotfooted it some 85 yards and the first touchdown for the New Yorkers. Ken Strong added the extra point with Newman holding. The Giants kicked to Herber, who came back to the Packers' 29. Hinkle and Bruder picked up two and three yards, respectively. Hinkle punted to Newman and he stepped back to the Giants' 47. The Mara-men clicked for a first down and another series of plays put the ball on the Packers' 40 when the first period ended.
KEN STRONG PUNTS
On the first play of the second stanza, Strong punted out of bounds on the Packers' 18. Herber got seven, Hinkle two and Bruder smashed for eight which gave the Bays a first down. The next three thrusts only gained three yards and Hinkle booted the cowhide out of bounds on the New Yorkers' 23. Strong immediately booted to Grove and he came back to Green Bay's 48. Hinkle got 12 yards. Then Bruder made seven in two rushes. Another thrust netted two and then Hinkle lost a first down by inches. It was the Giants' ball on their own 29. Strong got off a skyscraping punt of 67 yards which was downed by Badgro only seven yards from the Packer goal line. Bruder got a yard. Hinkle punted to Newman, who ran it back to the Packers' 12. Molenda got five. The next two rushes only advanced the ball a couple of yards. Grove knocked down Newman's pass in the end zone and the Packers put the ball in play on their own 20. The Bays lost yards on three plays and Hinkle punted to Newman. He hit the dirt on Green Bay's 43. A lateral by Newman lost eight. Grove knocked down a Giant pass and Strong's boot was grounded on the Packers' five. Hinkle made six yards in two line thrusts as time was called for the half with the ball in the Packers' possession on their own 11 yard stripe. The Packers received as the second half started and Hinkle ran it back 27 yards. Hinkle got two. Herber was thrown for a 20 yard loss by Campbell. HInkle was rushed on his punt and it went out of bounds on Green Bay's 36. Newman made three and then was dumped into his tracks. A pass to Badgro was good for 16 yards and it put the ball on the Packers' 20. Newman got three but was dumped in his tracks on the next attempt. A pass went haywire but the next Giant pass added another touchdown. Newman rifled the oval at Burnett. Clark Hinkle attempted to bat the ball down and Badgro grabbed it on the fly inches from the ground and stumbled across the final marker. Once again Strong converted. The Giants' kickoff went over the goal line and the Packers scrimmaged on their 20. A pass went bad and Herber got his signals mixed up and was thrown for a 14 yard loss. Hinkle punted from the end zone and Burnett signaled for a fair catch on the Packers' 30. From here Strong booted the ball between the uprights for another three points. Hinkle received the Giants' kickoff and ran the ball back to the 40 yard line. On the kickoff, the Giants were offside but the Packers refused the penalty. Two passes were incomplete and Hinkle was thrown for a big loss. Hinkle booted to Strong who was dumped on his own 38 yard line. Strong booted out of bounds on the Green Bay 24. Englemann lost eight. Coach Lambeau made a number of substitutions. Bruder got off a peach of a kick which was grounded on the Giants' 21. In the next series both teams were offside and the Giants gained little. Richards, who had replaced Strong, kicked out of bounds on the Packers' 31. Goldenberg celebrated his appearance in the game by picking up five and Buckets followed this by plowing his way some fifty yards to the Giants' thirteen where he was caught from behind. Englemann fumbled but recovered, losing three as time for the quarter was called with the ball on the New York 16 yard line.
BURNETT SNAGS PASS
Opening the final frame, Goldenberg got three and Bruder added one. Hinkle, who had replaced Englemann at halfback, attempted a pass and Burnett grabbed the ball and scampered back to the Giants' 44, where he was run out of bounds. The Giants moved along for a first down. Here the Packers braced and the Giants were forced to kick. Green Bay put the ball in play on its own 40. A pass, Hinkle to Goldenberg, netted eight. Buckets fumbled by Evans recovered for a three yard gain. Buckets carried on with yards enough for a first down. Rose snagged a pass for a six yard gain then two passes went haywire and instead of punting the last down the Bays attempted another toss. It fell dead and the Giants took the ball on downs near midfield. New York found the going rather tough and Richards booted over the goal line. Here the Packers started a march which led to their only touchdown. Herber, who had come back in the game, taking Grove's place, shot a forward to Rose and the officials ruled "Big 'Um" was interfered with. It was a first down for the Bays. A lateral toss netted one yard. Herber cut loose a long throw and Hank Bruder made a slick catch as he was smacked down on the Giants' 24. The Bays mussed an overhead drive but on the next thrust, Herber shot the ball to Gantenbein, who snatched it tight and fell over the goal line for a touchdown. Hinkle failed to convert as the ball hit the upright. The Giants received, Clancy taking Hinkle's kick and returning it to the Giants' 39. An offside set the New Yorkers back five. Clancy got away for 12 and McBride followed this with another first down when time was called with the ball in the Giants' possession in midfield.

NEWS AND NOTES
RELEASE TWO
NOVEMBER 27 (New York) - Weert Engelmann, halfback, and Jesse Quatse, tackle, were released by the Green Bay Packers here today., Coach Lambeau announced. John Blood, quarterback, who was suspended for breaking training rules Saturday, remained in New York today. The team will leave for Philadelphia Friday morning, following its Thanksgiving day contest at Stapleton.
CURLY HINTS OF SHAKE-UP
NOVEMBER 27 (New York) - As one defeat piles up against another on us I think I can at last partly explain what has happened to the Packers this season. The licking we took from the New York Giants here Sunday, 17 to 6, and the way we took it confirmed a hunch I had several weeks ago. I think first that this is our jinx year. It is our thirteenth season in the league and while I'm not superstitious, I have never seen so many breaks consistently go against a team as against us this fall. Sunday, for instance, Grove was free in the end zone, waiting for the ball when Herber threw a wild pass. It went nowhere near Grove and Burnett intercepted it and ran 85 yards for the first of New York's touchdowns. On the second of New York's scores Hinkle knocked down a pass intended for Badgro, actually batted it way, but before it hit the ground Burnett scooped it up and ran across the goal. You can't beat such brands when you get them almost Sunday after Sunday. In the second place I was mistaken in expecting certain men who had played good ball for us last year to play good ball again this season and in building certain key plays around them. For this I want to take the entire responsibility. Some of the boys haven't come through as I figured they would, and for having had them in there this long is all my fault. I should probably qualify this. Most of our boys have played their hearts out for us, but it takes 11 men on the field fighting all the time and not nine or 10. We have profited by our experience however. At least I know I have and I think most of the boys have. We'll be tough for the clubs we must still meet, even if we don't figure in the race for the championship. And next year, I think, will be an entirely different story.
STAPLETON IS NEXT OPPONENT OF GREEN BAY
NOVEMBER 28 (New York) - With a squad of 19 players, two of whom, Monnett and Ben Smith hardly are in shape for action, the Green Bay Packers this morning started preparations for the Thanksgiving day combat on Staten Island with Dan Blaine's Stapleton club. The suspension of Johnny Blood, coupled with releases handed to Weert Engelmann and Jess Quatse, leave the Bays shorthanded, particularly for backs, but Coach Lambeau figures he can carry through for the rest of the season and he has high hopes of snaring more than his share of victories in the remaining three games. Several of the Packers got a bad drubbing in the Giant fracas which was a lot harder fought than the score would indicate. Dr. Harry A. March, a member of the National league executive board, offered the injured Packers the use of his "health resort" on 151st-st. and three of the gridders took the sub up there and had the green lights turned on their aching joints...SCRIBES PRAISE GAME: The New York sports scribes had some good words to say about the Packers. Of course, the Gotham scribes were not so "flowery" as in former years because a club never looks good in defeat. The writers showed a unanimous opinion that the Green Bay squad showed a strong heart when they carried on in the face of defeat to score a touchdown and escape the whitewash bucket. Ken Smith in the Daily Mirror said: "By staging their best performance of the season, the New York Giants upset the Green Bay Packers, former champions, by a score of 17 to 6 at the Polo Grounds Sunday. It was a lucky thing for Tim Mara that his men were on, because the invaders from the Badger state were always dangerous and if they had got a few breaks it might have been a different story." Marshall Hunt of the News had this to say about Milt Gantenbein's touchdown: "Gantenbein, ex-Wisconsin captain, who did a sixty minute stretch for the Packers, saved Coach Lambeau's outfit from a goose-egging late in the last stanza when he leaped high in the air and made a one-hand grab of a high toss from Herber. A pair of Giants were right on top of the Green Bay wing but he held tight to the ball and sat down on his panties astride the goal line. It was as brilliant a piece of forward pass receiving as we have seen all season. College, high school or cash and carry."...MARGIN NOT GREAT: Hype Igoe commented as follows in the Evening Journal: "The margin of power between the clubs was not as great as the score would indicate. The Giants turned every break into scoring plays while the stubborn New York defense kept the Wisconsin invaders from capitalizing on all but one scoring chance. The game was replete with hard football. Ken Strong's lengthy quick kicks kept the Packers continually in their own backyard while the crushing power of Cal Hubbard, the Packers' 265 pound line backer up, had the Giant attack hobbled considerably." George E. Phair in the American said: "It took Flash Herber, Packer passing ace, about fifty minutes to get warmed up in the game against the Giants but in the last quarter, when he did start shooting them right, the Green Bayans marched 80 yards down the field in five plays for a touchdown which was climaxed by Gantenbein's sensational one-hand catch astride the goal line. The Giants had all the luck and they collected on their big breaks. Our statistics show that Green Bay made seven first downs to New York's four. The invaders made 69 yards by rushing against 44 for the Giants. The Green Bay club completed seven passes while Steve Owen's clan only clicked on four. Green Bay lost 20 yards via the penalty route while the Giants were set back twice for five yards."...STAPES LOOK TOUGH: Although the non-league game at Stapleton this Thursday was booked as a "breather" for the Packers. The situation has changed completely and Coach Lambeau's aggregation will have a battle on its hands as the islanders are playing bang-up ball these days. Last Sunday, the Stapes administered a stinging 33 to 6 defeat to the Orange, New Jersey, Tornadoes. These Skeeters are rated as one of the best free lance elevens in the eastern sector. Doug Wyckoff, one of the greatest pro backs in the country, is still the spearhead of the Staten Island attack. He made three touchdowns against Orange. Bill Pendergast, captain on the Manhattan college team this year, joined the Stapes last Sunday along with Paddy Ryan, who was a star at Holy Cross, and they both will see action against the Packers Thursday. As the Islanders are not in the National league this fall, they don't have to follow eligibility rules and as a result can use players who were members of college teams this fall...PLAN FRIDAY WORKOUT: The Packers will move on to Philadelphia early Friday morning. The Quaker City arrival is scheduled in time to get a workout at the Phillies ball park in the afternoon and enab;e the Philadelphia news photographers to swing their cameras into use for pictures in the Saturday papers. Lud Wray, the Eagles' mastermind, has arranged radio talks and service club appearances for Coach Lambeau and the Packer aces Friday night and Saturday noon. While in Philadelphia, the Green Bay squad will make its headquarters at the Benjamin Franklin hotel.
PRESNELL GAINS ON N.Y. STAR IN RACE FOR SCORING LEAD
NOVEMBER 28 (Columbus, OH) - Glenn Presnell, scoring leader of the NFL, picked up three more points on Ken Strong of New York, his closest rival, during Sunday's skirmishing on two gridiron fronts.  Presnell got a touchdown and two extra points against the Chicago Bears, while the best Strong could do were a couple of placements for extra points and a field goal against the Green Bay Packers. Jim Musick, Boston fullback, still holds third place, but he now faces a real threat for his position from Shipwreck Kelly of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Kelly got a touchdown Sunday against Boston, and trails Musick by one point...KELLY TAKES FOURTH: Kelly's marker shoved Buckets Goldenberg, Green Bay fullback, into the bottom spot of the "big five" group, but Goldenberg faces no immediate danger of being dislodged, as his nearest rival, Bob Monnett of the Packers, is 14 points behind him. Several new names were added to the scoring list Sunday. Davis of Philadelphia got a touchdown and extra point, while single touchdowns were made by Roberts of the Eagles, Hansen of Brooklyn and Gantenbein of Green Bay. There was considerable other scoring, but all of it came at the hands of men already represented on the roster. Kelly's touchdown against Boston was the seventh for that player in league encounters giving him a tie with Goldenberg for total touchdowns. Strong has booted 13 extra points, and holds the lead in that department of play, while two players, Presnell and Jack Manders of the Chicago Bears, have kicked five field goals...TEN GIANTS HAVE SERVED: Greatest scoring diversity still is held by New York's Giants, 10 members of that squad having broken into the scoring column. Green Bay is second with nine, and the other teams are represented by the following members: Brooklyn, eight; Philadelphia, Boston, Portsmouth and Pittsburgh, seven each; Chicago Bears and Cardinals, six each; and Cincinnati, four.
FRIEDMAN'S AERIAL RECORD IS BEST IN NATIONAL CIRCUIT
NOVEMBER 28 (New York) - Chiefly through the sharp-shooting of Benny Friedman, the Brooklyn Dodgers are setting a remarkable forward passing record in the NFL. The latest statistics show the Dodgers have completed 65 of their 135 passing attempts for an average of 48 percent. The Green Bay Packers, where Arnold (Flash) Herber holds forth, have completed 58 out of 156 for an average of a little better than 37 percent. The Portsmouth Spartans remain the leading ground-gaining team with 2,476 yards in ten games or an average of 247 3/5 yards per game. The Chicago Bears rate second with an average of 233 3/5 yards; Brooklyn third with 231 1/8, and Boston fourth with 230 6/11. Defensive Green Bay rates at the top, permitting the opposition an average of only 151 yards per game against 170 1/2 for Portsmouth, 175 1/5 for the Bears and 178 for Brooklyn. The New York Giants lead in total points with 187 to Green Bay's 154.
CAL HUBBARD, BEN SMITH ON INJURED LIST
NOVEMBER 29 (New York) - Once again the jinx has struck Coach Lambeau's Packers a staggering blow as an X-ray of Cal Hubbard's left hand revealed a fractured thumb and forefinger. He will be out of the game for the remainder of the season. The big Packer forward bruised his mitt in the Giant game but he didn't figure it was more than a sprain. However, the swelling and pain grew worse instead of better and after practice Tuesday, he hastened to a doctor's office where an examination showed the injury to be much more serious than feared. The Packer squad was cut down another head when Coach Lambeau sent Ben Smith to his home in Haleyville, Ala. The recruit wing from the Southern conference has been on the shelf since the Boston engagement. His cracked ribs refused to knit as quickly as expected and the examining physician told Coach Lambeau that one hard blow would crack the fracture wide open again. Smith has all the earmarks of developing into a great wing and Big Ben will be among the players reporting when the Packers get underway next fall...17 PLAYERS LEFT: With Smith and Hubbard out of the picture, the Packers have only 17 gridders in uniform and if any more injuries crop up, the Bays will be hard pressed for players, although back in the old days Green Bay completed one season with a squad of but 14. That was the period of Buck Gavin, Tommy Mills, Butts Hayes, Tubby Howard, etc. To make matters worse, Coach Lambeau, who has been off his feet for several weeks, suffered severe pains in his side at midday Tuesday and he, too, hastened to the doctor, as he feared an acute attack of appendicitis. The Bay mentor was given a thorough once over and the attending physician calmed some of the fears by discounting the appendix attack. It is a stomach disorder brought on by nervousness and Lambeau has been placed on a strict diet with some sure cure powders thrown in to hasten a quick recovery. Jesse Quatse has landed a job with the Pittsburgh club. Down Smoky City way Quatse was a great tackle in his days at Pitt and Coach Jap Douds figured he might find himself once back again on his old camping grounds. Weert Engelmann left New York for the Bay Monday night. Johnny Blood still is camping along the Broadway trail. He has some relatives in New York and Johnny has been calling around. As a rule, he eats one or two meals daily with his old teammates at the Victoria hotel...PACKERS VISIT GARDEN: The six day bicycle race now underway at the Madison Square Garden is getting quite a play from the Packers, "cash or otherwise". Sport promoters in New York always dish out a lot of "Annie Oakleys" when any of their ventures continue for a week and the majority of the footballers have been snagging passes right and left from the press agents and a few of the executives. Hank Bruder, Milt Gantenbein and Joe Kurth have been spending a lot of time at the Garden and one of the wisecrackers told them that they had better watch their step or they would be riding bikes as a habit when they get back home. Green Bay isn't the only club which has its troubles with officials' assignments for National league games. Both the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants are "wolfing" at President Joe F. Carr about the men he has assigned to handle the Thanksgiving day which will decide the eastern half championship. According to a spokesman for the Giants, Carr's selections of referees and umpires are hardly known in the metropolitan gridiron sector. Dame Rumor has it that both clubs have wired protests but those knowing the loop executive consider the complaints wasted energy. Mr. and Mrs. James Crowley entertained at home Tuesday night and among those present were Coach Lambeau, Roger Grove and Bob Monnett of the Packer squad, together with the assistant coaches at Fordham. Both Grove and Monnett were gridiron pupils of Crowley when he handled the football helm at Michigan State...SECRETARY TALKS SHOP: Dan Daley, secretary of the Stapleton club, dropped in on Coach Lambeau and talked shop. The Islander executive thinks the Packers should do fairly good business at the Thompson stadium as there is a lot of talk about the game. According to Daley, the Islanders still think well of the Packers as Coach Lambeau's gridders have always staged a brilliant exhibition whenever appearing on the Stapleton gridiron. The Packers haven't lost a  game in Stapleton but Daley claims the worm may turn this year as his club is loaded for "bear". In 1930 the Stapes bowed to Green Bay, 37 to 7, and the following year the Bays triumphed to the tune of 26 to 0. Last fall the Packes took away the bacon, 21 to 3, after trailing by a field goal at halftime. Mike Hummel of Lafayette will referee the Stapleton game, Tom Regan of Fordham is to umpire and Hack Mahoney of Baltimore will be in charge of the line sticks. The game will start at 1:30 p.m., Green Bay. The Packers will make the trip via bus and ferry to Staten Island. This is a quite a long jaunt but Coach Lambeau decided to stick to the regular routine rather than dress at Stapleton as the training quarters on the island are not anything to shout about.
PACKERS FACE STAPLETON AT STATEN ISLAND
NOVEMBER 30 (Stapleton) - A choice Thanksgiving
day football menu is on the table for the Staten Island
gridiron fans this afternoon at Thompson stadium where
the Green Bay Packers will swap drumsticks with Dan
Blaine's rejuvenated Islanders. The first course will be
served at 2:30 p.m. (This is 1:30 p.m., Green Bay time.)
Stapleton expects to top off a "so-so" season with a
victory over the Wisconsin eleven. This will be the
Islanders' fourteenth game and they have won eight and
lost five. About midyear it looked as if the team might
throw up the sponge due to financial troubles but at the
opportune moment several of the Stapleton shipyards
landed government contracts and this sent about a
thousand men back to work on the island. Business in
a football way began to pick up and the group owning 
the team is so encouraged that it hopes to re-enter the
NFL when 1934 rolls around. As a matter of fact the
Stape management already has started to rebuild as it
has secured the services of Paddy Ryan, Holy Cross,
and Hill Pendergast, Manhattan. Both these gridders
were stars in eastern collegiate football this season...WYCOFF PLAYS COACHES: Doug Wycoff, one of the greatest professional backs in the country, coaches and plays with Stapleton. He uses a wide open passing game as Hap McDonald, the Islanders' quarter from New York U., is a nifty ball flipper while Wop Stramiello and Hal Denny, the Stape ends, are nifty receivers. Gen McArthur, who has played with a half
New York Giants (8-3) 17, Green Bay Packers (4-6-1) 6
Sunday November 26th 1933 (at New York)
Bo Molenda (23), Dale Burnett (18), Ken Strong (50), Harry Newman (12); 1933 New York Giants 
dozen of the National league clubs, is holding down the center post for Stapleton and displaying lots of football. He and Mike Michalske should have quite a reunion on the scrimmage line, as they were teammates on Charlie Pyle's New York Yanks which featured Red Grange, etc. With only 17 players in the squad, Coach Lambeau will have to be an artful juggler to keep a representative team on the field and yet conserve all extra energy for the league scrap in Philadelphia Sunday against Lud Wray's Eagles. This tilt promises to plenty tough as the Phillies are as hot as a Hollywood dancer these days and since the moth eaten blue laws were lifted in the Quaker state, they haven't dropped a Sabbath day contest on their home lot. With the shortage of halfbacks very serious, Clark Hinkle probably will be moved into one of these positions and will allow Buckets Goldenberg to start the game at fullback. Goldenberg doesn't like bench duty and he claims he is good for 60 minutes in each of the three remaining games on the Packer schedule. However, Buckets has a badly bruised leg which may interfere with his fulltime proposal...ENDS ARE O.K.: Coach Lambeau isn't worrying about his ends as Dilweg, Rose and Gantenbein can cut the mustard nicely. He has only two tackles on tap, however, but he has been running Evans in this position to help out Kurth and Perry. The center trio situation is normal. The Packers made their final appearance on the DeWitt-Clinton practice field Wednesday morning and it looked odd to see the small squad going through the dummy scrimmage. Coach Lambeau helped out on one side and Trainer Bud Jorgenson on the other. A special invitation has been extended to Treasurer Charlie O'Connor to give a hand in the workout but he continued his 1.000 percent non-attendance average. He hasn't attended a practice on the trip and some of the boys are figuring on presenting him with an alarm clock before they get home. The Bays will be on their way early Friday morning and there will be a quick jump into uniforms when the squad reaches Philadelphia as the Eagle management has made arrangements with the newspaper photographers to meet Coach Lambeau's squad at the Phillies park at 2:15 p.m...HUBBARD HEADS FOR HOME: Cal Hubbard, with his injured hand in a cast, headed back to the Bay late Wednesday afternoon. A couple of the squad went to the station and gave the big tackle a hand with his bags (he has two of them and each are as big as trunks). As Hubbard left the hotel, one of the veterans bid him farewell with this remark: "Good bye and good luck. You'll have to do a lot of explaining when you get back home. I hope you can calm 'em down a bit before we arrive the following week."
