GAME RECAP (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL)
(PHILADELPHIA) - A rejuvenated Philadelphia football
club, which had kept its record clean at home, took it 
on the chin at the Phillies' National league park Sunday
by the score of 10 to 0 at the hands of the Green Bay
Packers, and the margin was a whole lot wider than the
marker on the board indicated. A slight rain started to 
fall shortly after the noon hour, but it didn't do anymore
than lay the dust on the playing field and scare away
several thousand "fair weather" customers. As it was,
some 8,303 customers paid their way in at the gate, in
cash dollars and cents as there were a flock of half
dollar seats in the baseball stadium. Lud Wray, coach
of the Eagles, had his birds "fogging" every minute but
the Phillies couldn't get very far against the Bays, who
were having one of their "on" days and fighting for every
inch of territory from the opening whistle to the closing
gun. The Bays put on a forward pass show for the staid
Philadelphians who were "ooh-ing" and "ah-ing" every
time Arnie Herber got the ball and started to fade back
preparatory to tossing the ball. Herber had his best day
of the trip. He took quite a pounding from the smashing
Eagles but came up with a smile and went back for 
more. Several of Herber's passes must have skipped
through through the air at least 55 yards. Two or three
times, the Bays lost certain touchdowns when the ball
just grazed the fingertips of the eligible receivers way
down in the shadow of the goal posts.
USE 16 PLAYERS
The Packers only used 16 players in the combat, while
the Eagles switched around their 22 players so 
frequently that from the Phillies' bench there was one
continual parade off and on field. Lud Wray wanted to
win the game in the worst way but all his efforts went
for naught, as the fighting Packer team was not to be
denied. Just as soon as the final whistle blew, the Bays
made a dash for their training quarters and made a 
record charge into their "every days" as the train for
home left at 5:13 p.m., and every man on the squad
wanted to catch it. The park was a half hour's bus ride
from the station but the arrangements for the police
escort worked out nicely and the bus carrying Green
Bay whizzed past red lights at bullet-like speed and
made the station with minutes to spare. It was the first
time in Packer history that a Green Bay team ever used
the clubhouse at the field to dress for the game. As for
the engagement itself, there was plenty of action and
only one bit of rough stuff cropped out. That was in the
second quarter, when Joe Kresky, of the Marinette clan,
tried to twist Roger Grove's ankle after he tackled the
Packer quarter, who was running back a punt. Grove
kicked himself loose and on getting to his feet, poked
Kresky flush on the nozzle. The Eagle has enough but
the officials didn't and "Straight Crowell", the referee
very promptly paced off 15 yards towards the Packers'
goal. During the next few minutes Kresky was given 
plenty of attention by Grove's teammates and it wasn't
long before he was given a chance to rest up on the
bench. But Grove went on and played his "sixty" as he
has done quite frequently this season. There was
another interesting angle to the conflict. Back in their
"rah rah" days, Snipe Hansen and Clark Hinkle were
opponents on the college field, Hansen at Temple and
the Packer star at Bucknell. The Eagles' press agent
had been playing up their renewal of the gridiron duel in
the Philadelphia papers and many of the spectators
came out to get an eyeful of this alone.
NEITHER STARTED GAME
At the opening kickoff, neither Hinkle nor Hansen were
in the game. The first period was about half way through
when Hansen rushed out from the Eagles' bench and
the crowd roared: "Where is Hinkle?" Two minutes later
the former Bucknell star started warming up along the
sidelines and Coach Lambeau soon chased him into 
the tilt. And it was Hinkle vs. Hansen for the remainder
of the game, with the Bayite having a decided edge.
Both watched each other like hawks. Hinkle knocked a
half a dozen passes out of Hansen's grasp while once
Hansen came across the field like a bolt of lightning
and dumped Hinkle on the 10-yard stripe when it 
seemed as if the Bay fullback was headed for a score
after a run through a broken field of some 60 yards. This
was the longest gallop of the combat and the crowd
cheered its head off for both Hinkle and Hansen. The
Eagles had few scoring opportunities during the game
and, when the Wray-men would loom a bit dangerous,
Coach Lambeau's players always were able to bottle
them up without much trouble. Hansen was about the
Eagles' only threat offensively. The Phillies' air drive was
not functioning any too well and quite often a Packer
instead of a Bird would be on the receiving end. Once
towards the end of the game, the Phillies clicked on 
several passes and it looked as if they might break the
ice but the Packer forwards bored in. The fourth down
toss was not even launched and it was a loss of 20
yards. Early in the first quarter, the Packers got a break
when Roberts fumbled a Bay punt and Rose recovered
on the Eagles' 30-yard stripe. Three plays netted little
yardage and then Roger Grove's attempted field goal
just sailed outside of the uprights. The remainder of the
quarter was fairly nip and tuck, although the Packers were driving ahead as the period ended with the ball on the Phillies' 48 yard line. The Packers kept the Eagles deep in their own territory as the second frame got underway. Herber once kicked out of bounds on the Eagles' seven and a few minutes later Gantenbein covered one of Herber's punts only two yards from the goal line. Soon after Hinkle attempted a field goal, but it fell short and Hansen ran it back to the 22. The Packers kept on passing and punting with good success, while the Eagles fought on valiantly to keep their goal line clear. With the period about half over, Comstock covered a Philly fumble on the Birds' 13-yard stripe and a touchdown loomed but line thrusts gained but little and a pass dropped in the end zone.
GROVE VS. KRESKY
Play speeded up in the closing minutes of the first half. The Grove-Kresky tilt enlivened the affair. Then Hank Bruder intercepted a Philly pass and the drive was on. The Bays pushed ahead to the Phillies' 30. Here the home club tightened and held for three downs but Hinkle stepped back and booted a field from the 30-yard line, giving the Bays a 3 to 0 lead. Hinkle kicked off and then on the first Philly thrust Clark intercepted a pass and it was Green Bay's ball on Philadelphia's 41 as time was called for the half. The Packers opened the third quarter by kicking off to the Phillies. The Eagles attempted to pass and Perry threw to Kirkman for a 20 yard loss. The Birds punted to Grove on the Packers' 29. Then Hinkle got loose for his run to the Phillies' ten. Once again it looked like a score, but the Birds held tight and a pass fell dead over the goal line. Following an exchange of punts, the Packers got steam up again, starting from their 30. A couple of first downs followed and then a holding penalty gave the Bays the ball on the Phillies' 44. The ball changed hands several times in the next few minutes and a couple of offside penalties were mixed in. Then Herber shot a 40-yard pass to Gantenbein, who caught, fumbled and recovered the ball on the Eagles' eight and time for the quarter was called. As the fourth period got underway, Bruder bucked the line for five and Hinkle followed with one. Then Bruder crashed over for the Packer touchdown and Grove added the extra point. During the remainder of the game, the Bays kept on hurling forward passes and running rings around their opponents but could not cross the goal line again. With but a few minutes of play the Eagles seemed to get their second wind but it was wasted energy and when the final whistle blew the Bays had the ball on their own 42 yard line.

NEWS AND NOTES
IT TOOK THE PACKERS' BEST TO WIN SUNDAY'S GAME
DECEMBER 4 (Philadelphia - Curly Lambeau) - It took the best football the Packers have played this season to beat Philadelphia's Eagles here Sunday, 10 to 0. We beat Philadelphia easily at Green Bay a month ago and anticipated little trouble in the return game. It was an entirely difference Philadelphia club we faced, however. The team had as much spirit and fight as I have seen in a professional team this season. Lud Wray has built up a fine organization here and has turned out a well coached team. I think Philadelphia will become one of the strongest cities in the National league. The fans seemed particularly receptive to pro ball and the newspapers have given games good coverage. A few victories over one of the first division teams and Philadelphia could become one of the hottest professional towns in the league. Clark Hinkle, who was a Bucknell man, had a number of friends in the stands Sunday and he showed them an exceptional game. He tore off the longest run of the day, a 62-yard dash to Philadelphia's 10-yard line early in the third quarter, he blocked and tackled perfectly and he kicked a 32-yard place kick for the first three points. Dilweg, Michalske and Gantenbein also played some of their best ball of the season. Herber was off on his passing at times, but when he did connect, he brought the crowd to its feet. I am glad the trip is over. The last two games were particularly trying for we played them with only 17 men, five of whom weren't even in shape to play. We will return to Green Bay Monday and will work for the Bear game at Chicago next Sunday on our own field. We haven't a chance for the championship, of course, but we will go to Chicago ready to shoot the works and win.
PACKERS RETURN HOME, LAY PLANS FOR NEXT GRID YEAR
DECEMBER 5 (Green Bay) - "Disappointed - yes. Worried about next year - H--- no!" That, in a few words, represents the attitude of Coach E.L. Lambeau and his
Packer football players who returned to Green Bay last
night after one of the worst road trips in recent years as
far as winning football games is concerned. Despite the
team's showing this season, a crowd of 400 loyal fans
and friends met the players upon their arrival at the
Northwestern station last night...ARRIVE AT STATION:
The team came direct from Philadelphia to Green Bay.
A few men dropped off for short visits at their homes but
were to rejoin the squad late today and they will hold a
practice session  at Joannes park tomorrow morning,
preparing for the final league game of the season next
Sunday at Chicago against the Chicago Bears. Rudy
Comstock left the squad at Bucyrus, Ohio for a short
​visit with friends and relatives there but will come on to
Green Bay tonight. Joe Kurth stopped off at Chilton and
also will report for practice again tomorrow. Cal Hubbard
who preceded the team here by a few days, stopped in
Green Bay long enough to pack up belongings and 
move back to his home in Missouri. Cal broke bones in
his right hand a week ago and was released for the
season at that time. "It has been a tough season in 
more ways than one," Coach Lambeau commented 
today in discussing the year and prospects for next
season. "One bright sport has been our ability to go
through the year without financial loss. It has taken a lot
of economy that has hurt us, but it will be proven that it
was worthwhile."...HAVE MADE MISTAKES: "We have
made mistakes. I've made them and am willing to admit
it, but don't think they'll occur again. And don't forget
we've made more than our share of breaks that have
made a world of difference. To begin with, I called the
team together too late. Blood, Hubbard, Michalske and
Hinkle reported even later than the others. Then we
missed getting a quarterback that we should have and
Barrager didn't report for center at the last minute.
Hinkle's tonsils had to come out and he wasn't ready for
the early games. All those things make a lot of
difference. Bruder was injured and out a good share of
the year. Some of our men didn't live up to expectations.
Just a few little things like that, all helped to make 
enough difference to cost us victories. Then before the
Portsmouth game, we got another break. Cal Hubbard,
following his dispute at Chicago in the Cardinal game,
received a letter from Joseph Carr, president of the NFL.
It was decidedly untactful of Carr, to say the least. In it
Carr warned Cal, not in so many words but in inferences
that is he got into any more disputes such as that
which happened in Chicago, his baseball umpiring 
career would be jeopardized."...NOT DISCOURAGED:
"Cal has his heart set on an umpiring's position in the
big leagues. The letter from Carr, who is one of the 'big
guns' of organized baseball took all the starch out of  
him. He wasn't as good a man after that. We were a 
different ball club. But we are not discouraged. With a
nucleus from this year's club, which incidentally has
plenty of talent despite our showing, and about 10 or 11
new men, we'll be right among the leaders again. What
has been particularly gratifying has been the attitude of
the fans. Instead of a chorus of howls for losing games,
which we might expect upon our return, we have been
greeted with a spirit of cheerfulness and optimism. 
Green Bay fans have been fine sports about it all. It 
sure helps pep us up for future years." The Packers
have been invited to play a post-season game at St.
Louis on Dec. 17, the coach said. Whether they will
accept this bid will be decided at a meeting of the board of directors today. St. Louis plays independent football.
PRESNELL TOPS SCORING RACE IN PRO LEAGUE
DECEMBER 5 (Columbus, OH) - Either Glenn Presnell of Portsmouth or Ken Strong of New York is likely to be the National league's top scorer for 1933, statistics released today reveal. The two players picked up a point after touchdown apiece Sunday, but their nearest rivals didn't even do as well as that, with the result that Presnell maintained his four point advantage over Strong and the two added one point to their margin over the field...PLANS TWO MORE GAMES: Strong has the advantage, however, in that he will appear in two more games, while Presnell will play in but one. An outburst of scoring from down the list served to narrow the gap between the leading five - Presnell, Strong, Jim Musick of Boston, Shipwreck Kelly of Brooklyn and Buckets Goldenberg of Green Bay - and the rest of the column. Jack Manders of the Chicago Bears and Kink Richards of the New York Giants, largely because of Richards' scoring spree Sunday, now roost in a tie for sixth place, 11 points behind Goldenberg, who appears to be a cinch for the fifth spot. Richards snagged two touchdowns and an extra point against Pittsburgh Sunday, to shoot well up in the scoring column...ELEVEN GIANTS SCORE: Scoring diversity still is held by New York, although Green Bay rates a close second. Eleven Giants have broken into the scoring list, while ten Packers are represented. The other clubs are represented by the following number of men: Bears, nine; Brooklyn and Philadelphia, eight each; Portsmouth and Boston, seven each; Cardinals and Pittsburgh, six each; Cincinnati, five.
BEARS OFFERED CHANCE OF TITLE GAME AT HOME
DECEMBER 5 (Chicago) - Joseph F. Carr, president of the NFL, yesterday announced the decision of the executive committee that the location of the playoff for the 1933 championship will be named by the team which finishes the regular schedule with the highest percentage. The New York Giants, winners of the Eastern Division of the league, will meet the Chicago Bears, victors in the west. At present the Giants have won 10 games and lost 3. The Bears have won 9, lost 2 and tied 1. Thus the Bears, if they tie or win from the Green Bay Packers Sunday at Wrigley field, will name the site of the championship game which will be played Dec. 17...BEARS WANT GAME IN CHICAGO: "If the Bears have the choice," George Halas, manager and coach of the Chicago team, said yesterday, "the game will be played at Wrigley field. The Chicago fans have supported the Bears splendidly and they deserve to see the title game. Moreover, it will be an advantage to play the Giants before a home crowd, for we haven't been licked at Wrigley field this season, and this record includes the Giants." The Bears, victorious over Portsmouth Sunday, 17 to 7, will be given a day off today, the first Tuesday of the season on which practice hasn't been held. The boys will start to prepare for the Packers tomorrow at 9:30 at Wrigley field...TWO FOR BEARS THIS YEAR: It will be the twenty-ninth renewal of the rivalry that began in 1921 and which, next to the Cardinal-Bear feud, is the oldest in the big league. Twice this season the Bears have pulled victories out of the fire on the Packers, the first at Green Bay, Sept. 24, by a 14 to 7 count, and then at Wrigley field, Oct. 22, by a 10 to 7 score. In both these contests the Bears were forced to stay on the defensive the greater part of the time. Heroics in the final stages won. This may indicate what is coming Sunday. In 1929, the Packers won three in a row from the Bears, the only time either has made a clean sweep in one season. The Bears would like to tie that record. The kickoff will be at 2 o'clock.
BEARS MUST WIN TO PLAY AT HOME
DECEMBER 5 (Chicago) - Whether the New York Giants and the Chicago Bears meet in the National Professional Football league playoff in New York or Chicago December 17 depends on the outcome of the Bears' battle with the Green Bay Packers next Sunday. President Joseph F. Carr of the pro league has notified George Halas, president and coach of the Bears, that the team finishing with the best percentage will be given the choice of playing sites. The Giants have won ten games and lost three; while the Bears have won nine, lost two and tied one. A victory or tie with the Packers would give the Bears the edge. A Green Bay victory, however, would give the Giants the better standing, and choice of fields. They will be out to thump the Packers, in order to meet the Giants at Wrigley Field. The Giants have not lost a game at home, while the Bears have not lost a game on their home field.
GIANTS SET SCORING PACE; BEARS GAIN MOST GROUND
DECEMBER 5 (Columbus, OH) - The New York Giants are setting a sensational pace in scoring points. According to the NFL statistics compiled today, the Giants have tallied 224 points in 13 games against contending teams. This total is 60 points better than the nearest team and better than 17 points per game. In addition the Giant defense has yielded only slightly over six points per game, in this respect almost equaling the mark of the champion Chicago Bears. The Bears, who have clinched the western title and will meet the Giants for the world championship, are the best ground gainers of the circuit with 2,870 yards in 12 games. Green Bay, defensively, has yielded only 1,770 yards in a like number of contests. Brooklyn wound up its season as the leading forward passing team by completing 79 tossed in 169 attempts, an average of better than 47 percent.
FORMER PACKER SHOOTS MAN IN WOODS MISHAP
DECEMBER 6 (Sault Ste. Marie, MI) - James Contratta, 34, Laurium, state highway department workman, was accidentally shot and killed last night by Rudolph Rosatti, Vulcan, former Green Bay Packers football player. The shooting occurred in Rosatti's cabin at Eckerman, near here. Witnesses said the weapon discharged accidentally when Rosatti picked it up from a bed to determine whether it had been cleaned properly. Rosatti played tackle for the Packers in the seasons of 1926, 1927 and 1928, finally being traded to the New York Giants in the deal which brought Cal Hubbard to the Packers. He played one season for the Giants.
PACKERS GET UNIQUE OFFER, ADDS INCENTIVE TO VICTORY
DECEMBER 6 (Green Bay) - Attorney M.E. Davis has expressed his keen interest in the Green Bay Packers by making a unique offer to the team on the eve of its final game with the Bears at Chicago Sunday. Mr. Davis' offer is expected to add incentive to the Packers' drive for a final victory string, started at Stapleton and Philadelphia. It was contained in a letter to Leland H. Joannes, president of the Green Bay Football corporation. The letter follows:
"Sunday afternoon, as I listened to the Packers-Philadelphia game, I thought of the interesting entertainment being furnished to thousands - of how the name of Green Bay has been spread by press and radio from one end of the country to another - of the money which has been brought into Green Bay by outsiders - of a number of athletes who, coming here to play, had remained and married, and now are valued residents - of how much the Green Bay Football corporation, its officers and employees, and other citizens of Green Bay have done in the past to bring this about and keep going - and of how little I had done. Please enter my subscription for $100 on the 1934 ticket sale. Please communicate the following offer to the team at once: For each touchdown made by the Packers at the Bear game at Chicago on Sunday, Dec. 10, I will pay for one suit or overcoat for a playing member of the team on the following conditions:
1. Winner to be selected by drawing names of players from hat. Drawing to be conducted by the team after the game.
2. Each player on the team, on Dec. 10, whether he is in the game or not, shall have a chance. Don't forget Cal Hubbard.
3. Suit or overcoat to be purchased by winner at any store he may desire in Green Bay. If more than one suit or overcoat be drawn for, first winner must keep out, and purchase made from different store in Green Bay.
4. Price of each suit or overcoat not to exceed $50.
5. Also, for each touchdown made by the Packers, I will pay $50 for clothing to be purchased at Green Bay for needy children of Green Bay by representatives of the Associated Charities and Green Bay Apostolate, not over $10 of this amount to be expended in any one store.
6. If the Packers do not score at all, my offer is to be considered the same as if one touchdown was made.
Hoping we win, I remain, Very truly yours, M.E. Davis."
CLIFF BATTLES GRABS GROUND GAINING TITLE
DECEMBER 6 (New York) - Cliff Battle of West Virginia Wesleyan and the Boston Redskins has clinched the ground gaining honors in the National Professional Football league, but it will take the three games still remaining on the schedule to settle the other individual championships. Battles has gained 737 yards in 12 games for a lead so great that there is virtually no chance of his being overtaken. His teammate, Jim Musick of Southern California, is second with 629 yards; Glenn Presnell of Nebraska and Portsmouth, third with 522 and Harry Newman of Michigan and the New York Giants fourth with 413. Presnell and Ken Strong of New York University and the Giants are tied for the lead in points with 64, and the race for passing honors still is wide open. Benny Friedman of Brooklyn has the best average with 42 completions in 80 throws; Arnold Herber of Green Bay has completed the most, 50; Newman has gained the most ground with aerials, 824 yards with Presnell second with 774 yards. Bill Hewitt of Michigan and the Chicago Bears has caught the most passes, 15, one more than Roger Grove of Michigan State and Green Bay.
BEARS PILE UP MOST YARDAGE IN NATIONAL LEAGUE
DECEMBER 6 (Chicago) - The Chicago Bears begin practice this morning for the final game of the regular season against the Green Bay Packers Sunday at Wrigley field with the satisfaction that they have now surpassed all National league teams in total yardage gained. The Bears, according to statistics released yesterday by the league press bureau, have made almost 29 full length trips of the gridiron. They have gained 2,870 yards as compared to Boston's total of 2,823 yards. This cheering note means nothing, however. Especially since further perusal of the facts
yields the information that Green Bay is almost the best
defensive club. The Packers have permitted opponents
only 1,770 yards. Brooklyn is in first position in this
column with 1,764 yards. Incidentally Brooklyn has the
best forward pass average, completing 79 passes in 
169 attempts...PACKERS ARE TOUGH: Rather than
dwell on these composite figures, Coach Halas will call
attention to the two previous games with the Packers.
At Green Bay the Bears won in the last three minutes,
14 to 7, and then repeated their fourth period heroics to
win, 19 to 7, at Wrigley field. Despite the fact the Bears
won the championship of the western division of the
league, it is true that they were out played in both Green
Bay games. And the Packers, who took three successive games from the Bears in 1929, not only will strive to prevent their record being tied, but they will retire from the 1933 race well satisfied if they can lick the Bears and thus send the championship game to New York. The team which finishes the schedule with the highest average in the league will have the right to name the site of the title game...JOHNSOS THROUGH FOR YEAR: The Bears' hospital list is almost non-existent, or would be if Luke Johnsos, who broke his ankle in the victory over New York at Wrigley field, could play Sunday. Luke tossed his crutches away the other day, but his ankle still is in a cast and he's definitely through for the season. Keith Molesworth, who has been dealing successful forward passes from the left half position, probably will start in the berth usually occupied by Red Grange. Molesworth's return of punts and his kicking have been invaluable aids in the Bears' march to the western title.
BLOOD IS REINSTATED FOR BEAR CONFLICT
DECEMBER 10 (Chicago) - Green Bay's Packers, one of the hard luck teams in the National Professional Football league, will end their worst season in years in a game with the Chicago Bears at Wrigley Field tomorrow afternoon. In desperate straits for material for tomorrow's game, Coach Curly Lambeau announced tonight that Johnny Blood, the vagabond halfback, has been reinstated and would be in the lineup against the Bears. Blood was suspended recently for breaking training rules but was restored to good standing after a conference with Lambeau on the team's arrival in Chicago tonight. Blood's return to the team will give Lambeau six backfield men for the game. Arnie Herber was lost to the team when he was hit in an automobile accident, and, according to Lambeau, it is doubtful if he ever will be able to play football again. Cal Hubbard is on the injured list with a broken thumb but will play if it is necessary. Tomorrow's game marks the third meeting of the Bears and the Packers this season. The Bears won the previous games, 14 to 7 at Green Bay and 10 to 7 at Chicago. In both games, the Packers enjoyed a 7 to 0 lead in the late minutes of the game but the Bears pulled both out of the fire. The Bears are odds on favorites to win tomorrow because of the crippled condition of the Packers. Although the Packers have had a tough time this season, Lambeau said tonight that there wouldn't be any releases announced after tomorrow's game but he did say that he intended to sign 14 or 15 outstanding college gridders for tryouts next fall. This is taken as an indication that he is dissatisfied with the showing of many of his veterans and that he is planning wholesale changes in an attempt to develop a winner next year.
PACKERS FACE BEARS TODAY
DECEMBER 10 (Chicago) - With 16 men, the smallest squad to represent Green Bay in the National Professional league in seven years, the Green Bay Packers arrived in Chicago Saturday evening for their final game of the season with the Bears Sunday afternoon. Coach E.L. Lambeau, with only five backs on hand, has kept the wires hot to New York in an effort to locate Johnny Blood, who was suspended for breaking training rules, but had not reached home as yet. If Blood is located he may fly to Chicago to take part in the battle. Otherwise Mike Michalske, guard, but a fullback in college, will be shifted to the backfield. The loss of Arnie Herber, who was hurt in an automobile accident Thursday will be severely felt. The following men made the trip: Centers - Bultman and Sarafiny Guards - Michalske, Evans, Comstock and Van Sickle Tackles - Perry and Kurth Ends - Dilweg, Rose and Gantenbein Halfbacks - Bruder, Monnett and Grove Fullbacks - Hinkle and Goldenberg. The Green Bay Football corporation at a recent meeting decided not to sanction a post-season game between the Packers and the St. Louis Gunners at St. Louis December 17. If the game is played it will be an independent affair, the players paying their own expenses and sharing the receipts alike. Coach Lambeau will accompany the team to St. Louis and then leave immediately for the Pacific Coast to scout holiday football games and secure new men for 1934.
of the league. The players will receive 60 percent of the gross receipts after expenses of the visiting team are taken out. The game is to be played at the park of the team that has the best percentage after Sunday's final regular games. The players will divide their share, 60 percent to the winning team and 40 to the losing. The clubs each will receive 15 percent of the proceeds and the league 10 percent. If a tie results, the league president will decide whether another game shall be played, Dr. Kelly said.
THREE PACKERS UNABLE TO FACE BEARS SUNDAY
DECEMBER 7 (Chicago) - Three members of the Green Bay Packers will be unable to play against the Bears Sunday afternoon at Wrigley field. The Bears must win or tie to assure the championship playoff with New York being played here on Dec. 17. Johnny Blood, Wuert Englemann and Ben Smith are the noncombatants this weekend, Coach Curly Lambeau of the Packers informed Coach George Halas of the Bears yesterday. Englemann and Smith are injured and Blood has been suspended for violations of the club training rules. All other members of the Packers, however, are in good condition and Lambeau said he expected to start Dilweg, Perry, Michalske, Bultman, Comstock, Kurth, Gantenbein, Grove, Herber, Bruder and Hinkle. Today's Bear drill will be under the supervision of Laurie Walquist, who has assisted Halas all season. Halas left for Columbus last night to confer with Joe Carr, president of the National league, and Tim Mara, owner of the New York Giants, regarding the championship game.
ARNOLD HERBER, PACKER STAR, OUT OF BEAR GAME
DECEMBER 8 (Chicago) - The Green Bay Packers will be without the services of Arnold Herber, star halfback, when they meet the Chicago Bears, western division champions of the NFL, at Wrigley Field Sunday afternoon. Herber, one of the leading forward passers in the league, was severely injured in an automobile accident near Green Bay yesterday morning. Herber received severe lacerations of the scalp and right forearm and a dislocated hip in the crash. Announcement of the accident was made by Curly Lambeau, coach of the Packers, who was preparing to send the squad through its last workout before leaving for Chicago to meet the Bears...BEARS TO START GRANGE: Assistant coach Laurie Walquist of the Bears indicated yesterday that their starting backfield will include Red Grange, Carl Brumbaugh, Johnny Sisk and Bronko Nagurski. However, Walquist said Keith Molesworth and Jack Manders probably would be used in the second half. Three members of the Bears who have been on the sidelines because of injuries participated in yesterday's drills. They are Zuck Carlson, Bert Pearson and George Corbett. Carlson and Pearson may play against the Packers, but Corbett probably will rest until the championship game with the New York Giants on Dec. 17. Victory for the Bears will give them the choice of the site for the championship battle with the Giants. The Bears are undefeated on their home field, winning seven games.
PACKERS DRILL FOR BATTLE WITH BEARS; PLAN FOR ST. LOUIS TILT
DECEMBER 8 (Green Bay) - Green Bay's abbreviated Packer squad engaged in a spirited workout this morning, running through passing formations and defense against Bear plays in preparation for the final league game of the year Sunday at the Chicago Bear field in Chicago. Coach E.L. Lambeau has only five halfbacks to work with, due to the injury of Arnie Herber in an automobile accident early yesterday, but may recall one of the men released earlier in the season for the game. The team will hold another short drill tomorrow and leave for Chicago on the Milwaukee road at 12:30 Saturday afternoon. While in Chicago the squad will stop at the Knickerbocker hotel. The Packer Football corporation will not sanction a post-season game for the team in St. Louis, Sunday Dec, 17, as an official undertaking, so the team will go as an independent unit with Coach Lambeau in charge. Under this arrangement the players will have to pay their own expenses and split whatever they receive. Coach Lambeau will leave from St. Louis for the Pacific coach to scout football teams in holiday games, seeking new material for the 1934 squad.
EXPECT RECORD THRONG AT BEAR, PACKER BATTLE
DECEMBER 9 (Chicago) - One of the largest crowds of
the season, according to advance ticket sales, will 
watch the Chicago Bears, western division champions 
of the NFL, play the Green Bay Packers at Wrigley field
tomorrow afternoon in the final game of the regular 
season. The Bears, who will have the choice of the site
of the championship battle with the New York Giants if
they defeat or tie the Packers, have gone through 
intensive workout during the week. The western division
champions will be seeking their eighth consecutive win
on their home field...BUCKLER TO START: Coach 
George Halas of the Bears indicated yesterday that Bill
Buckler, former Alabama star, will start at left guard 
instead of Zuck Carlson who has started in that position
in practically all of the Bears' games. Carlson was
recently injured, but may play during the second half.
The Packers will be without two of their outstanding ball
carriers, Johnny Blood and Arnold Herber. Blood was
recently suspended by Coach Curly Lambeau for
violating training rules. Herber, one of the leasing forward
passers in the league, was seriously injured in an auto
crash near Green Bay Thursday morning...MONNETT
REPLACES HERBER: Bob Monnett, formerly of 
Michigan State, who will complete his first year in the
professional ranks in tomorrow's game, probably will
start in Herber's place at left half.
GREEN BAY PACKERS WIND UP SEASON AT
CHICAGO ON SUNDAY
DECEMBER 9 (Green Bay) - It will be the Packers and
the Bears again tomorrow, tangling in Chicago in one of
their traditional feuds that dates back many years. For
both teams it will be the final contests on the regular
league schedule. The Bears must still play the New 
York Giants for the National league championship, 
having won the western section title, while the Giants
took the eastern district honors. The game Sunday is
scheduled at Wrigley field at 2 o'clock. For the Packers
it will be their final chance to make up for the two defeats suffered at the hands of the Bears in unusual contests this year. In the first game here the Packers out-played and out-fought the Bears, only to lose when the Chicagoans put on a last minute drill. In the second game it was the same thing, with the Packers enjoying a good lead, only to have Chicago come from behind a second time in the last four minutes of play to win out...FINAL BOW OF YEAR: Green Bay will be making her final bow of the year to wind up one of the worst seasons since the team entered league play. Just about everything that could happen to a club has happened this year. Coach E.L. Lambeau had visions of taking the final game, but with the squad down to 17 men, due to the accident in which Arnold Herber figured Wednesday, he fears the team hasn't enough reserve strength to get through the battle safely. Herber's passing in the Philadelphia game last Sunday was better than it has been at any other time this year and the coach looked for him to be set for this game. With the accident his hopes were were blasted and he had to build up other plans. The injury to Herber left the coach with only five backfield men for the game. Cal Hubbard, who returned to Green Bay several days before the rest of the players, due to broken bones in his hand, and then made a quick trip to his home in St. Louis, rejoined the squad yesterday and worked out in a practice session. He probably will be able to play against the Bears, at least part of the game...STRESS PASS PLAYS: Passing plays, with four backs taking turns in throwing the ball, have been stressed in practice this week. Monnett has been doing most of the tossing although Bruder, Grove and Hinkle also have been taking part in some of it. Goldenberg, Bruder and Monnett, who have suffered minor injuries in recent weeks, are in fine shape again and ready to go Sunday. Hinkle and Grove have been in good condition since early in the year. The Bears will have their full strength, with the exception of Luke Johnsos, who broke a bone in his ankle several weeks ago and was forced out for the year. Bill Hewitt, the Bears' mighty end, is in great shape and raring to go again. It was Hewitt who spelled poison to the Packers in both previous games this year. A flock of backfield veterans are ready for the Bruins. Nagurski and Manders are available at fullback. At halfback posts, the team has Grange, Sisk, Ronzani, Corbett, Doering and Franklin and at quarterback Molesworth and Brumbaugh.
BEARS OUT FOR 3RD IN ROW OVER PACKERS TODAY
DECEMBER 10 (Chicago) - The Chicago Bears wind up their regular season schedule this afternoon at Wrigley field against the Green Bay Packers, erstwhile professional football champions, and while no title is at stake the Bears desire a victory, or at least a tie, in order to keep their present mathematical advantage over the New York Giants which will entitle them to name the site of the championship game. The Bears and the Giants meet for the 1933 title in a post-season game next Sunday. Until the Bears assembled their present squad of players, the Packers had matters as they wished in the pro league, winning the championship in 1929, 1930 and 1931. Last fall the Bears tied the Portsmouth Spartans with six victories and one defeat. The Bears, however, had tied in six games and Portsmouth in four. Then, in the playoff, the Bears won the championship in an indoor game at the Chicago Stadium. This season, the Bears started in front and never lost a game until their second eastern trip, from which they recovered by beating Portsmouth twice and the Cardinals once...RALLIES BEAT PACKERS: The Packers have been beaten twice this season by the Bears, losing at Green Bay, 14 to 7, when the Bears rallied in the last three minutes to score on a forward pass, and then to win the game when Bill Hewitt blocked a punt and recovered, running 10 yards to the goal. At Wrigley field, the Packers again lost, 10 to 7, after having a 7 to 0 advantage. Green Bay has brought a squad of 16 men for the final game. Curly Lambeau, Packer coach, may rescind the suspension of Johnny Blood, which would add materially to the backfield strength. Other regulars are incapacitated or have been released. The Bears will have their full strength except for Luke Johnsos, who suffered a broken ankle in the New York game at Wrigley field. However, Coach George Halas does not expect to start George Corbett, halfback, or Zuck Carlson, injured guard, reserving them for duty in the championship battle next week...GRANGE ON THE JOB: Red Grange is expected to start at left halfback for the Bears. Grange still is one of the best defensive players in the league and his judgment is not only respected when the game is close but his presence on the gridiron is insurance that the Bears will not become demoralized in a crisis. This may be Grange's last season in professional ranks, although if  Red wants to quit, it will be his decision and not because George Halas doesn't want him with a  new campaign starts. Keith Molesworth will alternate for Grange, or, if need be, he can substitute for Carl Brumbaugh at quarterback. Molesworth's return of punts, his passing and running have been an important factor in the Bears' successes. Brumbaugh, the regular quarterback, seldom has received the publicity he deserves for his generalship. Carl has put the defense on the spot time and again with his shrewd judgment. Johnny Sisk will be the starting halfback and dependable Bronko Nagurski will be the fullback...BUCKLER FOR CARLSON: Ookie Miller, who hasn't had relief at center since Bert Pearson was injured, will start. Joe Kopcha, regular guard, will have as a running mate, Bill Buckler, who replaced Carlson. Link Lyman and George Musso are scheduled at tackles with Ray Richards a relief man, while at the ends of the scrimmage line will be Bill Karr and Bill Hewitt. Green Bay is intent on victory, not only because the Packers may make it possible for the championship game to go to New York, but because the Bears never have been able to lick them three times in one season. In 1929 Green Bay whipped the Bears three in a row and that record cannot be equaled, that is, if you believe the Packers. The kickoff is scheduled for 2 o'clock.
HERBER INJURED IN AUTOMOBILE CRASH; HIP IS DISLOCATED
DECEMBER 7 (Green Bay) - Arnold Herber, star passing halfback of the Green Bay Packers, is in St, Vincent hospital today, seriously injured as the result of
an auto crash near De Pere north city limits about 4:30
o'clock this morning. Herber incurred a severe face
laceration, a badly injured right forearm and a dislocated
right hip. Dr. W.W. Kelly, Packer physician, stated later
that he did not believe Herber had received any fractures
and that with proper care the halfback might be able to
play football again next season. The Packer veteran
was driving his light coach south toward De Pere, and
apparently did not see a truck of the Remick Trucking
company, Menasha, in time to avoid striking the heavy
vehicle. The truck was driven by Cecil Smith of
Menasha, who was uninjured...CAR IS SMASHED: The
right corner of Herber's car hit the truck, shattering
glass in the lighter machine, and damaging the left rear
wheel of the Menasha vehicle. Neither truck nor car left
the road and neither overturned. Herber was picked up
and taken to the hospital by Louis Lassaro, Brookfield,
Ill., a salesman. The sheriff's department was notified
immediately after the accident, and Sheriff Joseph
Francis personally investigated the mishap. Herber's
face laceration is particularly severe, the cut extending
four inches upward from his cheek bone into his scalp
between his left eye and ear. He remained on the
hospital operating table for more than two hours, and
his physician stated that he underwent considerable
blood loss before reaching the institution...COACH IS
NOTIFIED: Coach Lambeau was notified soon after the
accident. The loss of Herber leaves the Packer squad in
a critical condition with only 16 players eligible to face
the Bears at Chicago. Furthermore, only five of these
players are backfield men, and Bay officials admitted
that it would be "suicide" for the team to enter the game
carrying only one reserve back. Herber's passing has
been noteworthy all season, but it sparkled particularly
at Philadelphia last Sunday, when the black-haired vet
rained passes all over Phillies park to subdue the
Eagles.
RUDOLPH ROSSATI WINS RELEASE IN SHOOTING
DECEMBER 7 (Sault Ste. Marie, MI) - Rudolph Rosatti,
of Vulcan, Mich., former Green Bay Packer football
player, was released yesterday after he had convinced
Coroner E.A. Cornell that the fatal shooting of James
Contratta, 34, of Eckerman, 40 miles west of here, was
wounded Tuesday night when a rifle Rosatti was
handling in a road building camp discharged. Contratta's
body was sent to the home of his mother in Calumet yesterday afternoon.
RULES ARE MADE
DECEMBER 7 (Green Bay) - When the Chicago Bears and New York Giant teams clash Dec. 17 for the NFL championship, the financial setup will be similar to that employed in organized baseball, it has been decided by the executive board, Dr. W.W. Kelly, one of the three members of the board, announced today. Others on the executive board are Marsh, of New York; George Halas, Chicago, and Joseph Carr, president
