GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - Pittsburgh's football players probably wish they had spent Sunday in the comparative peace of the Pennsylvania coal mine strike district where they throw bombs around for excitement. They couldn't have gotten into more trouble in the strike zone than they experienced here when they tried to stop Green Bay's football team in a National league game at the City Stadium. The crowd was held to 4,000 because of threatening weather. The Packers were hot - hotter than they have been in a long time. Everything they tried worked like a charm, and when 60 minutes of play, part of that time in a slow drizzling rain, was over, the score was Green Bay 47, Pittsburgh 0 - the most one-sided score the Packers ever have run up in National league competition.
DO EVERYTHING WELL
Pittsburgh looked good for the first few minutes. But
that was all. After that it was the Packers and the
invaders never had a chance. It was only a question of
how big a score the Packers would run up. The Green
Bay men threw forward passes and laterals, swept
around the ends and cracked through the line with
equal success. It was a day in which everything they
did worked. The team clicked - and when a Bay team
clicks, it goes to town in no uncertain course. The
invaders tried everything in a vain attempt to stop Green
Bay. They passed from every angle, hoping to connect
to score at least one touchdown, but always a Green 
Bay player, or many players, covered the receivers. 
When the Pittsburgh team did complete a forward pass,
it was only a short gain and the easterners never were
beyond the Packer 30 yard line. Most of the time they
had their backs to the wall, putting up as stubborn a
defense as possible against an inspired team. They 
were game and never quit trying, but they were fighting 
a hopeless cause. Coach E.L. Lambeau sent in every
available man and all went good. There was not an
outstanding star in this ball fame, it was a victory that
belongs to the entire team. All had something to do that
gave him a place in the spotlight.
BLOCKING IS GOOD
The Packers blocked better than they have on any 
other occasions this year. When they swept around the
ends, three men led the interference and took out 
everyone who got in their way. When they cut over the
guards or tackles, it was the same. The assignments
were carried out to perfection and all the ball carriers 
had to do was to find a hole. Pittsburgh put up a
determined defense in the first few minutes and they felt
each other out as punts were exchanged. But before the
game was ten minutes old the Packers began to punch.
They played right down the field from the 50 and had a
score. After that they added three touchdowns in the
second period, turned in two in the third and one in the
fourth quarter. Buster Mott started the march after 
Grove had recovered a fumble. He swept around the end
to make it first down on the Pirates' 31. Hinkle, Mott
and Monnett carried it to the 15-yard mark and Grove
passed to Dilweg for a first down on the nine-yard line.
Monnett added eight yards on a smash over right tackle
and Hinkle picked a hole in center for a touchdown.
Monnett kicked the goal and the Packers led, 7 to 0.
RACE AROUND END
The rest of the game was much like the first touchdown.
The Packers would get the ball, march down the field
and score. They would throw in passes to draw out the
backs. Then they would hit the line for gains. In the
second period Monnett broke around right end and then
behind fine blocking by Herber, Hinkle and Comstock
raced to the 22-yard line, where he stumbled and was
pinned. The Packers lost the ball on downs, however,
and Pittsburgh got it, punting out. Again the Packers
started, this time with passes to Goldenberg, the first
from Monnett and the second from Herber, put the ball
on the 19-yard line. Monnett got loose to carry the ball
to the six-yard line. Goldenberg was held for no gain,
but Monnett got loose again, and smashed over left
tackle for a touchdown. Monnett failed to convert from
placement. A few moments later after the Pirates had
completed a pass to put the ball on the Packer 41-yard
line. Westfall tried another pass, and this time Buckets
Goldenberg cut over to the right, picked it out of the air
and started a race down the north sidelines. He sped
down the field with three men at his heels. Two he
outraced, a third, Kemp, a big tackle, nearly caught him
on the 15-yard line, but Lavvie Dilweg, running with him
for interference, checked his speed, smashed into 
Kemp, blocking him out of the play, to let Goldenberg
continue unmolested to the goal. Grove then kicked for
the extra point and the Packers led, 20 to 0.
GOLDENBERG GOES OVER
Near the end of the half Monnett passed to Herber to 
put the ball on the 15-yard line. Herber then tossed
another pass, this one to Englemann and the halfback
ran to the two-yard line before he was downed. Buckets
hit the line and it was another touchdown. Monnett's
kick was good and the half ended with Green Bay in the
lead, 27 to 0. The second play of the second half 
produced another touchdown. The Packers received the
kick. Bruder took the ball on a weak side play. He found
a wide hole made by Dilweg, Quatse and Evans, plowed
through it and continued to run. The Pittsburgh backs
were eluded by the faststepping Hank and he continued
to run, going 52 yards for a touchdown. Herber then
dropkicked for the extra point, and it was 34-0
ON ONE-YARD LINE
In the same period Monnett returned a punt from his
own 43 to the Pitt 24-yard line. Herber then passed to
Dilweg for a first down on the 12. Monnett went around
and behind perfect interference and it was another 
touchdown. Englemann's kick from placement failed. In
the final period the Packers added their last touchdown
and it was Englemann who scored. The play started as
a forward pass from the Pittsburgh 49-yard line. It went
from Herber to Monnett for the first stage. Monnett
waited until Englemann came up from behind, then
tossed a lateral to the latter and Englemann raced down
the field for the score. Monnett added the extra point
with a placekick. And when the game ended a few 
minutes later the Packers again had the ball on the
Pirates' one-yard line.

NEWS AND NOTES
PACKER GAME SIDELIGHTS
OCTOBER 16 (Green Bay) - Rain that started to fall shortly before game time cut the crowd. Those that attended got their money's worth of wide open football and spectacular plays. Off and on during the fray it drizzled but to the fans it was just another one of those things and didn't dampen their ardor...Ben Smith got a laugh out of the crowd when he handed the ball back to one of the officials after it had gone out of bounds on the north side. The player reached around from back of the official and plunked the oval into the latter's stomach causing that worthy to grunt...There was dead silence when it was announced over the public address systems that Molesworth of the Bears had galloped some 65 yards for a touchdown in the game against the Chicago Cardinals. A hearty cheer arose when the announcer followed with: "But the Bears were offside and the play didn't count."...Monnett did some fancy stepping on his first run for more than 20 yards when he pranced along the sidelines but kept his footing and stayed within the field. He had excellent blocking all along the line but was finally dragged down when he lost his balance...The Fond du Lac drum corps paraded between halves and was given quite a hand for its maneuvers. The men were dressed in gold colored jackets, white trousers and black boots, set off with flashing helmets...Two little boys were standing near the hamburger tent on the southeast side of the grounds when the Pittsburgh team filed back on the field for the second half. "Why don't youse Pirates fight?" one of them asked. Several of the players grinned but no one answered the query...Buckets Goldenberg, as usual, did excellent work. The Milwaukee boy will be able to but the City Hall for a song if he keep up. His pass interception and long run for a touchdown was spectacular. For a huge athlete Buckets handles himself with the skill of a Pavlowa and the crushing impressiveness of a box car...Hinkle's drive over the line for the first touchdown was a power play that was a pretty thing to see. The former Bucknell star slashed into the pile of linemen and through for the counter with plenty of yardage to spare...Cal Hubbard still knows his football. One of the Packer kickoffs went sailing down the field but Pittsburgh was technically at fault and the officials were about to rule another kick. "Wait a minute," the towering tackle bellowed. "How much time is there left?" he asked. When told the number of remaining minutes he agreed to another kick. The Pirates were penalized five yards and the game went on. Cal always has the rule book in his mind, and officials have to explain it to his satisfaction before there can be a penalty against the Green Bay team...Bob Monnett flashed to the front with a brilliant performance. The former Michigan State back turned in some nifty open field running. He carried the ball 15 times, gaining 93 yards, or an average of 6.2 yards per run...Some great blocking on the part of Comstock, Herber and Hinkle paved the way for a 31 yard run by Monnett early in the game. They cleared the way around right end, taking out three men cleanly...Mike Michalske turned in the greatest block of the day when he took out tow men with one terrific lunge to let Hinkle make a substantial gain...Buster Mott had to retire early in the game when he injured an ankle. He is expected to be in shape in a few days, however...Dilweg and Smith saw most of the service at wings. Both were impressive, catching passes and on defense. Bruder figured only in a few plays. He scored a touchdown on a 52 yard run but became nauseated and had to leave the game.
LAMBEAU IMPRESSED WITH PACKER BLOCKING
OCTOBER 16 (Green Bay) - There was much to savor for me in Sunday's decisive victory over Pittsburgh. More than anything else, however, was the blocking. When I mention blocking I don't only mean that done in the open by the backs but particularly that done in the close by the linemen. The cross blocking in our line Sunday was some of the best I have ever seen the Packers do, and explains largely perhaps why everything worked so well. As an example of blocking, I mention there was that 67-yard run of Buckets Goldenberg after he had intercepted a pass. As Buckets sped along the north sidelines he picked up a fan of interference that cleared the way for him beautifully and enabled him to cross the goal without a Pittsburgh man even close. Cross blocking in the line was at its best when Bob Monnett scored a touchdown from the seven-yard line in the second quarter. I saw that play coming and it was a pleasure to watch the left side of our line work it to perfection. Monnett started at right end but cut back. Our end smacked in and pushed their guard toward the center of the line. The tackle took care of their tackle and sent him out. This not only let Monnett cross the line standing up but opened a hole big enough for the other backs who led interference for him to cruise through. The Packers were "on" Sunday, and I liked the way they hit. I have been naked whether it was good policy to "shoot the works" in such a game as this, particularly in view of next Sunday's meeting with the Bears in Chicago. I think it was, for several reasons. It didn't hurt a bit to run up that score on the Pirates. First of all the Packers never have much in the way of scrimmage through the week and here was an opportunity for them to cut loose. I am satisfied and the score shows that the plays clicked pretty well. Secondly, it must be taken for granted that a loafing team lays itself open to injuries. The Packers couldn't ease up without risking trouble. They had to be tense. Thirdly, Bob Monnett found himself in this game. Monnett finally has recovered from an early ankle injury and turned in some sweet running here Sunday. You can't keep that boy down. In my opinion the Packers will be well set for the Bears next Sunday.
GREEN BAY POINTS FOR GAME AGAINST BEARS IN CHICAGO
OCTOBER 17 (Green Bay) - Green Bay's Packers began intensive practice work again today, pointing for Sunday's game in Chicago against the Bears. It will be the second battle of the year between the two teams, the Chicagoans having eked out a 14 to 7 victory in the closing minutes of the contest here a few weeks ago. The Packers believe Sunday's game will be a turning point in the National league race. Chicago's Bears are out in front with four victories and the Packers are two games behind. A defeat for the Chicagoans would put the Green Bay team only one game behind the leaders and within easy striking distance. Spurred on by two victories in the games here with Portsmouth and Pittsburgh, and the memory of that last minute defeat at the hands of the Bears, the Packers will be out to win Sunday, and win decisively...IN FAIR SHAPE: The Packers came out of Sunday's game with Pittsburgh in fair shape. Hank Bruder is laid up with a severe case of intestinal fly, but is expected to be in shape for Sunday. Buster Mott, halfback, has broke a small bone in the lower part of his left leg according to Dr. W.W. Kelly, club physician, and will be out of action for three or four weeks. After an x-ray yesterday the leg was placed in a cast. Quarterback Johnny Blood spent Monday in St. Mary's Hospital, his hand infected, but expected to leave that institution today and probably will rejoin the squad later this week. Grove and Herber handled the quarterback assignment without difficulty last Sunday, but Blood's experience is expected to prove valuable in the Bear game. The work of Bob Monnett was particularly pleasing Sunday, and he showed that he may be depended upon for regular service during the rest of the season. Monnett's slices through the tackles were executed perfectly, and several of his dashes paved the way to touchdowns...EXPECT BITTER BATTLE: In contrast to Sunday's wide open contest, the Packers are expecting another bitter defensive tilt at Wrigley Field, and the Green Bay line is being treated accordingly this week. The Bears have developed a disturbing tendency to rally this year, as displayed against the Packers, and as recently as last Sunday against the Cardinals.Special excursions will be offered at railroads and buses to Chicago and a large crowd is expected to follow the team. The Northwestern and Milwaukee roads are offering round trip rates for the weekend, and the Packer management expects hundreds, or perhaps thousands of fans, to be on hand from Wisconsin at Chicago.
NAME FOUR OFFICIALS
OCTOBER 17 (Columbus, OH) - At the insistence of the Green Bay Football corporation, Joe F. Carr, NFL president, has appointed four officials for Sunday's Packer-Bear game at Chicago, he announced today. Bobby Cahn, Chicago, will referee and he will be assisted by the following men: Gordon McNutt, Milwaukee, umpire; Wildred Smith, Chicago, head linesman, and George Laurie, Chicago, field hudge. Several National league clubs have requested that four officials be appointed for their major games, and indications are that President Carr will follow this policy.
PRESNELL SETS SCORING PACE IN PRO LOOP
OCTOBER 17 (Columbus) - Although Glenn Presnell,
Portsmouth quarterback, continues to lead the National
league scoring race, he has found a new rival in Charles
(Buckets) Goldenberg, Green Bay fullback, official
statistics released today reveal. Goldenberg scored two
touchdowns against Pittsburgh Sunday, and now trails
the Portsmouth star by three points. Presnell's three 
field goals, six extra points and two touchdowns for 27
points assure him the league leadership for at least
another week. Third place is held by Ken Strong of New
York, with 21 points, and fourth is a three way tie 
between Dade Burnett, New York, Shipwreck Kelly,
Brooklyn, and Bo Molenda, New York. Each has scored
three touchdowns. Goldenberg leads the league in
touchdown scoring, having crossed the last chalk mark
four times. The star extra point booter is Presnell, 
although Jim Musick of Boston and Bob Monnett of
Green Bay are pressing him closely, with five apiece.
Presnell's three goals from the field top the league in 
that department. Two field goals each have been kicked
by Joe Lillard, Chicago Cardinals, and Jack Manders,
Chicago Bears.
BAYS AT PEAK FOR TILT WITH CHICAGO BEARS
OCTOBER 17 (Milwaukee Sentinel) - Following of the
program hereabouts will again get a piece de resistance
on their football menu Sunday when the Chicago Bears
and Green Bay Packers play their second game of the
season at Wrigley Field. In an earlier game, at Green
Bay, the Bears scored twice in the final four minutes of
play to win, 14 to 7, but if they think they are going to
get away with a duplicate this week they're going to be
shaken - rudely so. Right now the Bays are hitting in
top form. The line defensive play has been superb all
season and in the last two games its offensive play has
been almost as good. The same holds good with the
offensive play of the backs. Right now the carriers run
as if they meant it and the backs, as a whole, are the
best blocking set the Bays have ever had...In Hinkle
and Goldenberg, the Bays have two great fullbacks.
Buckets, in college, was noted primarily as a blocker,
but after watching that boy lug the leather for Lambeau
& Co., the belief arises his abilities were not taken
advantage of in college. Sunday, at the Bay, Buckets
executed more perfect blocks than it has ever been my
pleasure to see a single man turn in. Time and again
he'd take tacklers - would-be tacklers out of the way
with a resounding smack. And the victims would go the way of all flesh, pick themselves up, look around to see where the army mule came from and shake their heads, wiser and sadder...Speaking of blocks, it would be interesting to know what Paul Moss, all-American end from Purdue, thinks of the pro blocking. Paul was in  the game practically all the way and saw most of it from his rumble seat. Evidently Paul and Buckets don't care for the same kind of hot chocolate. Buckets was giving Paul a plenty all afternoon and on one Pirate punt nailed his rival with a dilly of a block. Paul got up and Buckets gave chase and was just about to let 'er go again when Paul smacked him one on the well-known Buckets' schnozzle. But right then and there the officials broke up the personal warfare and warned both to cut out the rough stuff. And did Buckets foam and froth for the next few minutes?...One of the most pleasing things to my point of view was the fine play of Wuert Englemann, the South Dakota jackrabbit. All season it appeared that Wuert was pressing - trying too hard - and was off his game. Sunday he was the Wuert of old. He made no less than a half a dozen tackles in the open, thrice after kicking off, and one when a Pirate ball carrier got away from Herber and was headed for a touchdown. He also carried the ball with his old vim, vigor and vitality, and, in addition, showed more blocking ability than at any previous time with the Bays. If Wuert has returned to the form of two years ago it will be just that more sugar in Curly's cup - for Wuert, when right, is just the type of backs that is letter perfect against certain teams and certain defenses...Football's a funny game. The Pirates' lineup was studded with stars. The team had played great football until meeting the Packers, holding a win over the Cardinals as one of their pet achievements, but Sunday the club looked bad...Try this some time at a game: Pick out one man who has been putting up a good article of ball and watch what he does five plays in a row. Sunday several of the boys on the press bench picked out Goldenberg, Quatse and Kurth in order. On the very first play, a kickoff, Buckets playing at end, rather loafed. Of course the fact that he was playing the outside position prevented him from going down pellmell, but he coasted just the same. On the next four plays he was in the thick of things, making one tackle, covering a pass receiver, blocking on a punt, and blocking on a play from scrimmage. In Kurth's case, Joe was watched on two offensive plays and three defensive. Offensively he opened a nice hole on one occasion (with a little illegal use of hands, by the way) and on the next held momentarily on a punt and went down the field for the tackle. Defensively he charged through fast three times and once nailed the carrier going around the opposite end. Quatse was watched on one offensive and four defensive plays. Only once was he taken off his feet - that time when he rushed in to block a punt and the blocker got a good shot at his legs. Jess, by the way, must be as strong as a bull - the way he was tossing blockers off.
CARDINALS BUY NESBITT; DROP TWO PLAYERS
OCTOBER 17 (Chicago) - The Chicago Cardinals purchased Dick Nesbitt from the Bears, Dr. David J. Jones, Cardinal president, announced yesterday. Nesbitt will join the Cardinals immediately and will accompany the team on the eastern invasion, which starts on Boston next Sunday. He is regarded as one of the best punters in the National league as well as a good ball carrier. Nesbitt is expected to add driving power to the Cardinal backfield, one of its most pressing needs. Jim Bausch, Cardinal fullback, was released along with Homer Ledbetter, another back. The Bears will begin drill today in preparation for the first invasion of the Green Bay Packers Sunday at Wrigley field. Although some of the Bears carry marks from the Cardinal game, the squad is expected to be at full strength for the Packers. Next to the Bears-Cardinal feud the Packers and Bears' annual rivalry is the oldest in the National league. The teams first met in 1921, the Bears winning, 20 to 0. They did not meet in 1922, but have faced each other each year since. Sunday's encounter will be the 28th. The Packers have won twelve; the Bears, eleven. Four were deadlocks. Green Bay has accumulated 197 points to 187 by the Bears this season. One of the largest delegations ever to come from Green Bay will witness Sunday's game. Most Packer fans are expected on a special train.
PACKERS PREPARING FOR CHICAGO CLASH
OCTOBER 17 (Green Bay) - Bolstered by two wins in a row, Green Bay Packer professional football players were preparing to play their second game of the National league season against the Chicago Bears. The Packers started their winning streak two weeks ago when they defeated Portsmouth, 17 to 0. Playing against the highly touted Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, the Packers won 47 to 0. Coach Curly Lambeau feels that the team finally has reached its pace. Lambeau diagnosed the trouble in early season defeats as a weak center and his judgement has proven correct in the Portsmouth and Pirate games. The position was plugged with a new man, Larry Bettencourt, of Alabama. When the Packers met the Bears earlier in the season they lost on their own field, 14 to 7. Sunday's game will be played at Chicago.
BEARS SPURRED BY MEMORY OF PACKER BATTLES
OCTOBER 18 (Chicago) - Memory of the opening battle with the Packers in Green Bay spurred the Chicago Bears yesterday as they opened practice for their return engagement Sunday at Wrigley field. The Bears won that game, 14 to 7, by outsmarting the Packers on one play and outplaying them on another. Outside of that the 1932 professional football champions were the second best team that afternoon. When the Bear line outcharged the Packers to permit Bill Hewitt to block Arnold Herber's punt and carry it over for a touchdown and the winning points, it was the only time they were superior to the Green Bay line...GUARD AGAINST PASSES: The Bears are better now, but so are the Packers. Sunday's game will be a last ditch stand for Green Bay since a defeat would practically eliminate the Packers as a west division title contender in the National league. As the Packers are at the top in percentage of forward passes completed, the Bears are devoting their time to ways to prevent such tactics. Several players who in the past have humbled the Bears will renew acquaintance here. Among them are Herber, one of if not the  best passers in the league; Johnny Blood, who is his equal as a receiver; Hank Bruder, Wuert Englemann, Milt Gantenbein, Clark Hinkle and Roger Grove, backs, and Lavvie Dilweg, Augie Michalske, Cal Hubbard, Claude Perry, Rudy Comstock, Art Bultman and Al Rose, linemen...PACKERS ROLL UP BIG SCORE: In addition several new men are on the squad, among them Joe Kurth of Notre Dame, Larry Bettencourt of St. Mary's, Cal., and Buckets Goldenberg of Wisconsin. That the Packers are clicking now is evidenced by their huge score against Pittsburgh, the 47 to 0 score being one of the largest registered in the league this year. Pittsburgh beat the Cardinals, 14 to 13, and last week the Cardinals led the Bears, 9 to 0, only to lose out 12 to 9.
STAHLMAN WITH BRUINS
OCTOBER 18 (Chicago) - Dick Stahlman, the 220-pound tackle who played with the Green Bay Packers a few years ago, has been signed by the Chicago Bears and will play his first game here Sunday against his former teammates. He was released by Green Bay at the close of the 1932 season.
COLD WEATHER PUTS SNAP IN PACKER DRILL
OCTOBER 18 (Green Bay) - Victorious in the last two
NFL games, the Green Bay Packers are preparing for
their first jaunt to Chicago, where they will play Sunday
afternoon against a wary Bear squad. The Bear team is
one of the few in the circuit not underestimating the
Packers' strength. Reports that the Bays are all through
in a football way, taken to seriously by Portsmouth and
Pittsburgh, were discounted from the start by George
Halas, owner, manager, coach and chief cheering
section of the Bears, who regards Sunday's contest as
one of the most important on his schedule. The Bays
will take off at 2:40 o'clock Saturday afternoon on the C.
& N.W. road and will arrive at Chicago that evening.
When they trot out on Wrigley Field Sunday afternoon,
several key members of the squad will be playing in 
their first out-of-town engagement against the big, bad
Bears, but there will be enough experienced material on
hand to prevent recurrence of such mistakes as those
which cost victories in the Boston, New York and first
Bear games...SNAP INTO DRILLS: While in Chicago,
the Packers will headquarter at the Knickerbocker
hotel. Indications are that they will have plenty of
company for the number of fans following the team is
expected to much larger than last year. Many persons
have not even seen the Bays in action this fall, instead
preferring to save their money for the excursion to
Chicago. Colder weather put a snap into the Packers'
drill this week, and with injured members of the squad
responding properly to treatment, the team will be near
full strength when it meets the Bears. The game will be
the twenty-eighth meeting of the two traditional rivals.
The Packers are still smarting under the surprise lacing
the Bears handed them at the Bay in September, when
the Bruins rallied from under a 7 to 0 disadvantage. 
Johnsos and Hewitt slid for touchdowns in the last three
minutes and what was billed as a thrilling victory
developed into an even more thrilling 14 to 7 defeat.
EXPECT BIG CROWD
OCTOBER 18 (Chicago) - Attendance records for the
season are expected to be broken at Wrigley Field on
Sunday when the Chicago Bears play host to the Green
Bay Packers in the 28th renewal of the NFL's most
traditional rivalry. With the sale of Dick Nesbitt, stellar
halfback, to the Chicago Cardinals, Gene Ronzani and
Johnny Sisk, former Marquette luminaries, have been
pressed into constant service during the week's practice
sessions, and indications are that both will see
considerable action on Sunday. The crowd at Wrigley
Field totaled 12,000 at last Sunday's Cardinal-Bear game, but the Bear management is certain that the figure will be surpassed, as the Packers have great drawing power here. Coach George Halas was pleased to heat that Joe F. Carr, Columbus, Ohio, league president, has named four officials for Sunday's contest. Three of the four, the Bear mentor noted, are from Chicago.
FRIEDMAN, NEWMAN BATTLING HERBER FOR PASS HONORS
OCTOBER 18 (New York) - A couple of quarterbacks who were all-America selections in their college days at Michigan, Benny Friedman and Harry Newman, are waging a close fight with Arnold Herber for the lead in forward passing in the NFL. Newman, in five games with the New York Giants, has completed 17 passes in 39 attempts for a gain of 353 yards while Herber, Green Bay star, has completed 27 in 57 for 371 yards. Friedman, now with the Brooklyn Dodgers, has a higher average than either of his rivals, completing nine out of 11 for a gain of 165 yards, but has played in only two games. Paul Moss, former Purdue end now with Pittsburgh, and Luke Johnsos of the Chicago Bears sets the pace as pass receivers. Each has caught nine, Johnsos for a gain of 153 yards and Moss for 143. Cliff Battles, former West Virginia Wesleyan flash, and Jim Musick, of Southern California, furnish two big reasons why the Boston Redskins have outgained all rivals. Battles has gained 447 yards while Musick with 273 is his closest rival. Joe Lillard of the Chicago Cardinals and Ace Gutowsky of Portsmouth, are next with 238 yards.
MUCH MORE SCORING
OCTOBER 18 (Columbus, OH) - The new NFL playing rules adopted in the interest of opening up the game are having the desired effect. Moving the goal posts back to the goal line and permitting forward passing at any point up to the scrimmage line has resulted in more field goals, more scoring and less tie games. Only one game in the twenty so far played in the major grid circuit has resulted in a tie, whereas last fall the percentage was about one in every three finishing in a deadlock. Field goal kicking has returned so markedly that nine three-pointers have been kicked. Last fall only three were made during the entire schedule of more than 50 games. In point scoring there is also a marked increase, fully 50 percent more points being registered now than at the same stage a year ago. There have been 471 points made in 20 games...TEAM HONORS SPLIT UP: Four clubs share the lead in team statistics. The Boston Redskins, by gaining 1,190 yards, have shown the most powerful offense, while the Portsmouth Spartans, by holding their rivals to 619 yards in five games, have the strongest defensive mark. At point getters the New York Giants with 116 are leading the circuit. The Green Bay Packers with 36 completed forward passes in 70 tosses have the best aerial record. 
DOERING WILL RETURN TO BEAR DRILLS TODAY
OCTOBER 19 (Chicago) - With Bull Doehring, who was on the hospital list last week, ready for action against the Green Bay Packers Sunday afternoon the Bears' forward passing attack is expected to function at top speed. Doehring twisted his ankle in a practice game in Washington, but has been taking daily treatment. With the swelling gone he planned to join practice today. The news that Doehring will be available and the acquisition of Dick Stahlman brought a note of cheer into the Bear camp. They will be at full strength for the return engagement with the Packers. Coaches Halas and Walquist are looking for means to end Herber's success with passes. A large part of the Packers' yardage this year is directly traceable to Herber's arm. A slow start against the fast starting Packers would complicate matters, in the opinion of Bear coaches. In previous Bear-Packer rivalries the team which scored first generally has won. In 18 of their 27 games, the winner's score was only a touchdown better than that of the losers. Stahlman, a former Packers, was in uniform yesterday and went through the regular drill. He is 28 years old, is 6 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs 220 pounds. He started in the pro game with Pottsville in 1925 and the next year divided his time between Rock Island and the Chicago Bulls, which were members of the American league. Stahlman played for New York in 1927 and was also a member of the Wilkes-Barre basketball team. In 1928-29, he was on the Cleveland baseball roster. He played football the last three years with Green Bay and in baseball with Newark and Reading. Coach Halas will use Stahlman as a halfback.
INJURIES AND ILLNESS HIT PACKER TEAM
OCTOBER 19 (Green Bay) - With the squad in excellent mental but only fair physical shape, Coach E.L. Lambeau and the Green Bay Packers headed for Chicago today for the 28th renewal of the National league's most traditional rivalry with the Bears at Wrigley Field Sunday. Henry Bruder, dubbed "Hard-Luck Hank" at Northwestern University because of his ability
to pick up ailments at most inconvenient times, still is
confined to his bed with a touch of intestinal flu, and it
is doubtful whether he will be able to appear in uniform
Sunday, let alone start the contest. Johnny Blood, who
was suspended last week for breaking Packer rules,
had been restored to good graces and is back in togs,
ready to go against the Bears. Arnold Herber who was
banged up a bit is expected to be in shape to play but
Claude Perry, who injured his leg last Sunday may not
be able to start. He had been missing from drills this
week because of the injury...HANGURSKI WILL PLAY:
Clark Hinkle, Packer fullback, will enter the game with
a wary eye cast on the backfield, as Bronko Nagurski,
injured in a collision with Clark Hinkle at Green Bay
several weeks ago, will be back in the regular lineup,
Nagurski's face was disarranged and the line of his
nose re-routed, necessitating several weeks' rest. The
Bears' line has been strengthened considerably for
Sunday's tilt. Burt Pearson, veteran center who also
was injured at Green Bay, finally is ready for more
action, lifting part of the pivot burden from Ookie Miller. Oookie has been in the thick of the fight since Pearson was hauled to the bench in the Packers game, and will welcome the return of his partner. Richard Stahlman, Packer tackle of championship days, has been signed by the Bears and will make his first appearance with the Chicago team Sunday. Stahlman is well versed in Packer plays, and his presence in the contest may make it necessary for the Bays to dip into a huddle when formulating their attack...PLEASED WITH MONNETT: Coach Lambeau did not conceal his pleasure at Bob Monnett's fine showing last Sunday. Despite the fact that Pittsburgh's team proved unexpectedly weak, the flashy halfback turned in a brilliant performance, and Lambeau hopes that the Packer line will shake him loose for a few dashes Sunday afternoon. Mike Michalske, who has played guard ever since joining the Packers several seasons ago, was shifted to the backfield in yesterday's drill, and showed up well. Mike played fullback during his undergraduate days at Penn State, and is an excellent passer, getting plenty of distance on his tosses, and backs up the line in great shape on defense. Larry Bettencourt has been working hard in practice, and the new center is certain to share the pivot assignment with Bultman and Sarafiny Sunday. Sarafiny also has been drilled at tackle this week, to replace Perry if the latter is unable to play. Odds slightly favor the Bears. Fans have not forgotten the first meeting of the teams this year when the Packers, after leading for three periods, crumpled in the last minutes of play to permit two touchdowns and a Bear victory. The 14 to 7 decision proved lucky for the Bears, who have not dropped a game since. For the Packers, the contest has taken on a crucial nature, as the Bears rest undefeated atop the National league circuit while the Bays, tripped by New York and the Bears and tied by Boston must win Sunday to remain in the pennant race.
GIANTS LEAD IN SCORING
OCTOBER 19 (Columbus, OH) - The New York Giants by virtue of their overwhelming 56 to 0 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday continue to lead the pack in the NFL's team scoring race. The Giants have tallied 116 points against their opponents, being the only team to have counted over 100 units. The Green Bay Packers are in second place with a scoring record of 85 points. Defensively, the Brooklyn Dodgers with only ten points scored against them in two game, lead the league, although the record of the Chicago Bears with only 16 points against them in four games is more impressive.
undefeated atop the National league circuit while the Bays, tripped by New York and the Bears and tied by Boston must win Sunday to remain in the pennant race.
BEARS BOLSTER GRID TEAM FOR PACKER BATTLE
OCTOBER 20 (Chicago) - The acquisition of Dick Stahlman, former Packers, and the return of Bull Doehring, ace aerialist, to the Chicago Bears' lineup today considerably bolstered the Bears' hope of capturing the second of their three game series with Green Bay, which will be played at Wrigley Field here Sunday afternoon. Other teams have been underestimating the Packers' strength this season, as Portsmouth and Pittsburgh can testify, but there is nothing of this attitude in the Bears' preparation for Sunday's title. Coach George Halas is frankly afraid of the outcome, and he is making every effort to produce a combination that will halt the Bays, now definitely regarded as pennant contenders. Halas heard with some surprise that Michalske, veteran lineman of the Packers, who has been termed at various times "the guard of the century", has been shifted for the first time into the backfield. With Michalske is certain to be hampered, Halas believes, and he is about convinced that a punting game is apt to result most favorably for the Bruins...DOEHRING IN UNIFORM: Doehring, who incurred an ankle injury in the Bear-Washington game, has been limping around ever since, but he was back in togs yesterday, his left handed tosses apparently working better than ever. Some of them were being snared by Stahlman, who has been shifted from tackle to the backfield in a bold experiment.There was plenty of fever in the practice session for Bronko Nagurski, who was cracked up in a head-on collision with Clark Hinkle at Green Bay several weeks ago, and who has been more or less valueless to the Bears ever since. Nagurski is anxious to get another wallop at the Packers, and his teammates believe that there is a considerable personal element in his desire...MANY WILL DRIVE: Much of the worry which Coach Halas is spreading throughout his squad is caused by the success of the Packer aerial attack this season. The Bears are hoping for some boggy weather, which will keep the Bays mired and give the husky Chicago linemen a better chance to shine. At the same time the Bears boast a classy passing attack in their own right, and believe they can match the Packers toss for toss, in case the game develops into an overhead contest. Word from Wisconsin indicates that all roads will be leading to Chicago. Special excursion rates offered by two railroads will bring the largest groups into the Windy City, while many others, provided the weather does not turn unfavorable, are planning to drive down to the north side stadium.
BRUDER STILL SICK
OCTOBER 20 (Green Bay) - Although Hank Bruder still is confined to his home with an attack of the flu, he has the satisfaction of knowing that one jinx in his hard luck string has been eliminated. When the Packers' 1932 season ended., Bruder had climbed to the appropriate position of thirteenth on the Green Bay all-time scoring list. The coincidence didn't bother Bruder but he went to work just the same, and now the thirteenth spot is held by Carl Lidberg, Packer fullback of 1926 to 1930. Bruder has chalked up two touchdowns this season, and the all-time scoring table find him resting in a tie for tenth place with Wuert Englemann. Each has scored nine touchdowns for a total of 54 points. The Packers' leading scorer is Verne Lewellen, 1924 to 1932, who counted 50 touchdowns and an extra kick for 301 points.
CARR TO SEE GAME
OCTOBER 20 (Columbus, OH) - Joe F. Carr, president of the NFL and promotional director of the National Federation of Baseball Leagues, will be in Chicago over the weekend on a double mission. Mr. Carr will be an interested spectator at the Packer-Bear football game which he considers one of the crucial contests in this year's pennant chase. Following the game, he will turn his thoughts from football to baseball and confer with the Wisconsin State league committee in regards to "every day" ball in Wisconsin. According to organized baseball executives, Wisconsin is "ripe" for the daily variety and every string possible is being pulled to have the Badger state in organized ranks next spring.
FEATURE GAMES SUNDAY
OCTOBER 20 (New York) - Two of the keenest rivalries in the eastern and western divisions of the NFL will be settled next Sunday. The unbeaten championship Chicago Bears meet the Green Bay Packers at Wrigley Field, Chicago, while the Brooklyn Dodgers will attempt to knock their neighborhood rivals, the New York Giants, out of the Eastern division lead at Polo Grounds, New York. The rapidly improving Chicago Cardinals invade Boston and the Pittsburgh Pirates travel to Cincinnati in the other circuit tests slated Sunday. The New York Giant-Brooklyn rivalry, always a keen one, is even more bitter this year with three former Giant stars, Chris Cagle, Shipwreck Kelly and Benny Friedman in the Dodger backfield.
KURTH TO MAKE CHICAGO DEBUT IN BEAR GAME
OCTOBER 20 (Chicago) - Joe Kurth, Notre Dame's star tackle last year, will be among the new Packers who make their debut before Chicago fans Sunday when the Bears and Green Bay meet in the second of their annual three game National league series. It is quite likely that Kurth will draw Link Lyman, giant Bear tackle, as his immediate opponent, who with Cal Hubbard of the Packers, was playing pro football when Joe was in fifth grade...HUBBARD IS GIANT: A similar contrast may be presented at the other tackle should Hubbard be opposed by George Musso. Lyman weighs 252 pounds, 50 more than Kurth, but only eight pounds separate Hubbard and Musso. Hubbard weighs 265 pounds. The Packers and Bears both are worried of aerial attacks. Green Bay always has been a good passing squad. The Bears stock soared last week when against the Cardinals they completed nine out of 18 passes for a gain of 96 yards...BEARS SHOW STRENGTH: Also against the Cardinal line, which is on par with any in the league, the Bears gained a total of 152 yards, which combined with the pass yardage made a total gain of 252 yards for 10 first downs. It was a pass play, Hewitt to Johnsos, that turned the tide against the Packers at Green Bay in the season's opener. The same play scored a touchdown on the Cardinals.
Green Bay Packers (2-2-1) 47, Pittsburgh Pirates (1-3) 0
​Sunday October 15th 1933 (at Green Bay)
PACKERS TRAVEL TO CHICAGO FOR GAME
OCTOBER 21 (Green Bay) - It will be Green Bay and the Chicago Bears again tomorrow afternoon at Chicago fighting in one of the traditional Packer-Bear games for National league honors. Game time is 2 o'clock at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. The game, the 28th in a series that dates back some 12 years, promises to be just as hard fought as any in the past. Both have old scores to settle and both will be giving everything to win. For the Packers there is the realization that they must come through with a victory if they are to continue as a contender for the 1933 title; for the Bears it will be a fight to keep their unspotted record clean. The Bruins have four victories
and no defeats in competition to date. With a powerful
line and backfield that is as good as any in the country
the Bears will be able to give the Packers plenty of
trouble. From tackle to tackle there isn't a man who
weighs under 200. The ends are big, fast and capable.
In fact it was the ends who caused the Bays' downfall
when the teams met here the last time. Bill Hewitt, one
end, tossed a pass to Luke Johnsos, who plays on the
opposite of the line, as the game neared the end. It
connected and a minute before the whistle blew the 
Bears had scored again and the Packers were beaten...
WILL SPUR PACKERS: The memory of that beating is
sure to spur the Packers on. They outplayed the Bears
in every department for 55 minutes, only to go sour in
the final few minutes and have the Bruins come out on
top. They believe they can outplay them again, and this
time it will be for 60 minutes, despite the fact the team
will be weaker than any time in the past few weeks, as
three regulars will not be in the lineup. His absent
players are Hank Bruder, Buster Mott and Claude Perry.
Bruder has been in bed all week with a fever brought on
by intestinal flu. Perry's leg is in bad shape and he 
cannot move fast. Mott has a broken bone in his leg 
and is out for three weeks. The injuries have brought 
about a few changes in the Bay lineup during practice
sessions this week. The coach has been using Van
Sickle, guard, and Sarafiny, center, at tackle to fill
Perry's shoes. He has been working with Bettencourt
and Bultman alternating at center. Mike Michalske, 
guard, has been getting some practice in the place of
Bruder, but it is doubtful whether he will be there Sunday as he is more valuable in the line against the Bears...THREE HALFBACKS READY: Coach Lambeau will have only three halfbacks available, and one of that group, Arnie Herber, is not in the best of shape and he may have to shift Goldenberg or Blood to a halfback post part of the game. Englemann and Monnett are the other halfbacks available. Herber has been nursing painful bruises following an altercation Monday night and may not be able to play more than part of the game. His left eye is quite swollen. The Bears will have practically the same lineup that started here. The only absentee will be Dick Nesbitt, halfback, who was sold to the Chicago Cardinals this week. They have two powerful fullbacks in Manders and Nagurski and have Johnny Sisk, Bull Doehring, Dick Corbett, Gene Ronzani and Harold Grange for halfback positions with Molesworth and Brumbaugh to call signals...HAVE GOOD TACKLES: Besides Johnsos and Hewitt at the ends, the club has Karr and Tackwell. It is well fortified at tackle with Link Lyman, Dick Stahlman, with the Packers last year, Musso, Richards, Buckler. At guards are Carlson and Bergerson, veterans, Kopcha and Joe Zeller, who also was with the Bays last year. Two of the best centers in the business, Ookie Miller and Burt Pearson, are ready to go at that position. Indications are that the teams will play before a crowd of 15,000 or more. With good weather several thousand fans will follow the team from Wisconsin. Special excursion trains are being run over the Northwestern and Milwaukee roads and bus lines also are offering reduced rates.
PRO GRID NOTES
OCTOBER 21 (Green Bay) - One of the largest scores that has been chalked up in a National league game in the last 10 years was recorded last Sunday in New York when the Giants, coached by Steve Owen, walloped Philadelphia's eleven, 56 to 0...The New Yorkers clicked for three touchdowns in the opening fram;e got one in the second quarter, another in the third and then spurted in the final frame for three more markers. Every goal was converted...Battling furiously, the Bears nosed out a 12 to 9 victory over the Chicago Cardinals. The Windy City southsiders had a touchdown and field goal lead at halftime but the Bears wiped this out in the closing periods...Lillard was again the whole show for the Cardinals. He ran 50 yards for a six pointer, and then booted a field goal. A pass over the goal line, Hewitt to Johnsos, made the Bears' touchdown. Manders' field goaled...Cincinnati suffered its fourth defeat of the season last Sunday in Brooklyn when the Dodgers skipped through to a 27 to 0 victory. Some 12,000 spectators saw the Kelly-Cagle combination chalk up a creditable win...Tom Nash, former Green Bay end, celebrated his appearance in a Brooklyn uniform by snagging a pass from Benny Friedman for a touchdown. The other Dodger markers were made by Co-owner Kelly via the overhead attack...With four victories to their credit, the Chicago Bears are setting the pace in the pro league. The Halas-men
are great "finishers" as they pulled three of the tilts out
of the fire in the last three minutes of action...The injury
jinx is raising havoc with the Pittsburgh machine. Coach
Jap Douds had two of his star backfielders, Brovelli and
Holm, out of action against Green Bay while Schwartz
was just able to play a few minutes...Rumor has it that
Ludlow Wray, coach of the Eagles, is going to continue
his house-cleaning on a team wide scale. The Quakers
haven't looked so hot of late and there will be some
changes in the squad...The Portsmouth Spartans are
touring the east via bus and Coach Potsy Clark's 
gridders seem to thrive on it. The jumps are so arranged
that the players sleep in hotels at night along the 1,800
mile gridiron tour...Business is booming for the Boston
Redskins at home as Coach Dietz's hirelings have 
played before some 35,000 in two contests at Fenway
park. Despite a lot of college ball, the Hub is going
strong for the pro variety...Tesser, an end from Carnegie
Tech, is making the grade with the Pittsburgh squad.
Aside from working above par as a wing, he does most
of the punting and his skyscraping spirals cover plenty
of ground...Father Knickerbocker's professional football
feud is resumed this Sunday at the Polo Grounds where
the Giants will attempt to take the Dodgers into camp
but Brooklyn may spring a surprise on Tim Mara's crew..
The Chicago Cardinals launch another eastern division
invasion this weekend with a game at Boston and the
following weekend are booked in Brooklyn. Coach Paul
Schissler's team may also play in several exhibition
engagements.
BEARS SELECT BACKFIELD FOR PACKER BATTLE
OCTOBER 21 (Chicago) - Nagurski, Corbett, Sisk and
Brumbaugh will be the starting backfield of the Bears
against the Green Bay Packers in the NFL league game
tomorrow at Wrigley Field, while the visiting foursome is
expected to be Grove, Herber, Bruder and Hinkle. 
Corbett has been going well all season, as has Sisk, 
and from now on they are likely to be used more than 
ever. Corbett is an excellent punter, and much of that
duty from now is his. The Packers are scheduled to
arrive this evening for a night's rest before the battle...
PASSES WORRY HALAS: What to do about Green
Bay's forward passing attack is the problem that Coach
George Halas has been attempting to solve during the
Bears' drill this week. Putting stoppers on Herber, the
leading thrower, would settle it, but Herber operates
behind a line that is the equal of the Bears. Thus Halas instructed the Bears to be on the alert for Johnny Blood, Lavvie Dilweg, Al Rose, Hank Bruder and Clark Hinkle whenever there is a possibility of a forward pass. Blood always has been a jinx to the Bears. He ranks as one of the best pass catchers in the league this year...KURTH OPPOSES LYMAN: Joe Kurth, formerly of Notre Dame, will start at right tackle for Green Bay. He will be opposed by Link Lyman, who will outweigh him by 50 pounds.
BEAR-GREEN BAY FOOTBALL GAME ON WGN TODAY
OCTOBER 21 (Chicago) - Traditional rivals of many years, the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers, the NFL's perennial leaders, will clash this afternoon at 2:15
at Wrigley Field, with WGN presenting the exclusive
broadcast of the contest. The Packers and Bear games
always have drawn great crowds, for this contest each
year is one of the outstanding features on the league
schedule. Bob Elson will open the broadcast before the
kickoff to give his listeners advance dope on the two 
teams, some information about the players and the 
starting lineups. A special broadcasting booth has been
erected in Wrigley field from which Elson will present
his broadcast. Bert Metzger, Notre Dame's famous all-
American "half pint" guard of a few years ago, will be
presented between halves. Bert will tell some interesing
stories of his experiences during his days at Notre 
Dame and also will give his impressions of the pro 
contest. Metzger, although considerably smaller than
the usual run of college football players, was one of the
greatest stars ever developed at Notre Dame.
R-REVENGE! CRY PACKERS TODAY AGAINST
PACKERS
OCTOBER 22 (Chicago) - The Green Bay Packers,
including Arnie Herber, Hank Bruder, Johnny Blood, Cal
Hubbard, Lavvie Dilweg and other famous warriors are in
town inspired with a double-barreled idea - to say up in
the west division of the NFL race and to obtain revenge
over the Bears. The latter idea probably is paramount 
with the Packers, for they are still trying to recover from
the shock of the 14 to 7 beating they absorbed in the
season's opener at Green Bay. That was an affront to
the ancient Green Bay custom of crushing the enemy 
in the first game - one that automatically called for retaliation at the earliest possible date - and that date is this afternoon at Wrigley Field at 2:15 o'clock...NEW AND OLD STARS READY: Curly Lambeau, who is in his fifteenth year as a post-graduate coach and the only one Green Bay has ever known, has every man on the squad in prime condition. They are a mixture of established veterans and lads whose names were headlines only a short time ago in the collegiate game. Among the latter are Joe Kurth, tackle from Notre Dame; Jesse Quatse of Pittsburgh, Ben Smith of Alabama, and Bob Monnett of Michigan State. They will see action some time during today's contest. But it will be up to the old guard who in the past have waged many a terrific battle with the Bears and who, until last year when the Bears won the title, captured the National pennant three times in a row, to bear the brunt of today's attack...WATCH MR. BLOOD!: This means that once again the giant of the National circuit, Cal Hubbard, will hurl his 265 pounds into the line play; that Johnny Blood will be darting around alert for forward passes from Herber's arm; that Dilweg will be trying to outsmart Luke Johnsos, and Wuert Englemann will go crashing into the line. Whether this crew will outdo the Bears today remains to be seen, but they did so at Green Bay for fifty-five out of the sixty minutes of play - or until Bill Hewitt, staged a "Frank Merriwell" finish, aided by Johnsos and Bill Buckler. The Bears harbor no illusions as to their superiority over the Packers. They realize a distinct menace to their clean slate of four victories. Forward passing is the forte of both teams and Green Bay's in particular, for they lead the league in aerial fireworks with a record of having completed half of the number attempted. In this Herber and Blood have been outstanding...BEARS SIGN STAHLMAN: The Bears' passing attack has been strengthened with the return of Bull Doehring and Coach Halas tightened the line by signing Dick Stahlman, a former Green Bay warrior, and Bronko Nagursku, fullback, may be able to play without the annoyance of the special headgear designed to protect his broken nose, which incidentally was sustained in the first period of that Green Bay battle up north. Today's battle is the twenty-eighth of their rivalry that began in 1921. The Packers have won twelve; the Bears, eleven, and others were ties.
FEDERAL CAMP FOOTBALL MEN SPORT UNIFORMS OF WORLD CHAMPIONS GREEN BAY TEAM
OCTOBER 20 (Green Bay) - If there is any gang of Conservation Camp soldiers anywhere in the United States that wants a football game with the team from Camp Elcho at Summit Lake, let them first read this. The team up there is called "The Packers". Its squad consisted of a first, second and third team and a number of not uniformed second stringers. The uniforms are the best that money can buy. Or that is they once were. The headguards may be uncomfortable and the shoes might not be perfect fits, because they're somebody else's shoes. But the blue and gold sweaters, and the high hipped gridiron kickers - there's a story to them; tradition, they're battle scarred and glory covered. Lavvie Dilweg's big "22" is poison again to shortlegged safety men receiving punts, and it screams out "throw it to me" as it is seen kangarooing over, into and through the enemy camp to bob up behind them and near the goal line. A big high school kid from far up north is wearing it again. He was an end at high school. He's a foot taller than anybody in Camp Elcho so he didn't have to roll the pants up or turn the sleeves under...WANTS TO BE CAPTAIN: "Don't you think I oughtta be captain," a broad shouldered wrestler-legged kid from Iron County asked Lieut. D.V. Johnson, the camp commanders, a West Pointer and the coach. "Ya see, I got Curly Lambeau's sweater and No. 1 on it and everything and I ain't bad at kickin' points after and all that..." "Point after what?" the coach-commander growled. "The captain should be more concerned about his team getting the first six, instead of himself getting the seventh one. I thought you played center on the high school team?" "I did. And I played piccolo in the band too. But it didn't interfere with my doubling at quarterback and I'd make a good captain. I got the captain's number. I wanna be Curly."...OLD PACKER UNIFORMS: They are the Packers' uniforms the conservation corps players are using. Old uniforms and equipment which had accumulated through the years and was quite in the way, and without salvage value. Even the smallest old Packer headguard or uniform is too big for any Boy Scout or most grade or high school athlete and the equipment was pretty well battered up for any local post-grad outfit. Just how old it is may be gathered from the "captain" getting a sweater with Coach Lambeau's No. 1 sewed on its back and "Earl Lambeau" written on the identification label under the neck. Johnny Roach, Appleton, and one of Knute Rockne's quarterbacks upon whom several of the coach's famous after-dinner stories were hung, knew Lieutenant Johnson and visited the big C.C.C. camp at Summit Lake. Johnson is an old 3rd Field Artillery Regular Army officer and knows something about football from West Point and numerous Army outposts. "Curly must have some junk stored away that he can' use any more, and it will fit these big kids and make a football team up here. And think of playing in the shoes of the world champs. That'll make 'em winners," quoth Roach...EQUIPMENT IS SENT: The scenes shifted quickly and soon a big packing box was on the way to Camp Elcho, compliments of Coach Lambeau "and all the lads". The very first evening the ambitious quarterback yelled, "22-22-22-23-Hike!" and the soldiers formed in fours and marched off the field. The word "Hip!" was substituted for "Hike!" and the play worked. Four times 22 was a very spectacular end around play. It wasn't a Packer play. These woodsmen-soldiers are not going to be bound too much by tradition. The coach has a helpful staff of four Green Bay boys. But it seems, they have seen the Packers play and that makes drug store or curbstone coaches out of them. They describe the formations and if they don't clock they criticize the team. But criticizing the coach doesn't work up at Camp Elcho, and any suggestions for a change in management would also be unpopular. The coach can be removed only after court material and for good and sufficient cause far beyond his tactical errors on the recreation field...EXPRESSES THANKS: Coach-Commander-Lieutenant Johnson wrote Coach Lambeau: "I cannot sufficiently express my appreciation or the thanks of my men. We certainly cannot repay you ever, but you have made at least 200 more rabid Packer fans. The large amount of equipment useful to us, made a team possible and it was the only way we could get organized." The U.S. government probably had to buy the football, however. For the unserviceable Packer footballs for a number of years have found their way to the playgrounds and recreation activities in the Packers' hometown.
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORTS
OCTOBER 20 (Green Bay) - Can the Packers take the Bears in Chicago Sunday? We would say they can to the tune of 16 to 0! Two touchdowns and a field goal is our prediction of the outcome of the Green Bay-Chicago game. It is a lot for a Bear-Packer game, but we believe the Packers have hit a stride that will be hard to stop. We don't think the Bears can do it. Despite the loss of Hank Bruder the Packers should be just as strong as they were when they gave the Bruins all they wished for here in the first game of the year. Hank has been on the shelf with a stomach ailment all week and probably will not be able to see much action Sunday. Coach Lambeau may use Mike Michalske in the backline, where he is a power at backing up the line and a great blocker. He also can throw a neat pass. Playing a six-man line with Cal Hubbard backing up one side, Clark Hinkle or Buckets Goldenberg backing up at the center and Mike at the other side, the Bears won't get very far. They form as sweet a secondary defense group as there is in the country today.
'BEAR HUNTING' WILL BE ON PACKERS' BILL
OCTOBER 20 (Green Bay) - The up and coming Green Bay Packers are going Bear hunting in Chicago's metropolitan area Sunday afternoon and are looking forward to bagging something more. They want revenge for that four minutes early in the pro football season when the Bear turned successful hunter. The Chicago Bears came up here several weeks ago and were played off their feet for 56 minutes of their game, then shoved over two touchdowns in the waning minutes, to win 14 to 7. That was just one of the four victories the Bears have hung up this season to enable them to lead the National Professional Football league. A victory for the Packers will not only avenge that defeat but will also knock the league leaders out of the undefeated class while shoving the Packers up a notch or two. The Packers were reported by Coach Curly Lambeau today to be in fine shape for the game, which will be played at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs of the National Baseball league.
PACKERS LOSE BRUDER DUE TO ATTACK OF FLU
OCTOBER 20 (Green Bay) - With the squad in excellent mental but only fair physical shape, Coach E.L. Lambeau and the Green Bay Packers headed for Chicago today for the 28th renewal of the National league's most traditional rivalry with the Bears at Wrigley Field Sunday. Henry Bruder, dubbed "Hard-Luck Hank" at Northwestern University because of his ability to pick up ailments at most inconvenient times, still is confined to his bed with a touch of intestinal flu, and it is doubtful whether he will be able to appear in uniform Sunday, let alone start the contest. Johnny Blood, who was suspended last week for breaking Packer rules, had been restored to good graces and is back in togs, ready to go against the Bears. Arnold Herber who was banged up a bit is expected to be in shape to play but Claude Perry, who injured his leg last Sunday may not be able to start. He had been missing from drills this week because of the injury. Clark Hinkle, Packer fullback, will enter the game with a wary eye cast on the Bear backfield, as Bronko Nagurski, injured in a collision with Hinkle at Green Bay several weeks ago, will be back in the regular lineup, Nagurski's face was disarranged and the line of his nose re-routed, necessitating several weeks' rest. The Bears' line has been strengthened considerably for Sunday's tilt. Burt Pearson, veteran center who also was injured at Green Bay, finally is ready for more action, lifting part of the pivot burden from Ookie Miller. Oookie has been in the thick of the fight since Pearson was hauled to the bench in the Packers game, and will welcome the return of his partner. Richard Stahlman, Packer tackle of championship days, has been signed by the Bears and will make his first appearance with the Chicago team Sunday. Stahlman is well versed in Packer plays, and his presence in the contest may make it necessary for the Bays to dip into a huddle when formulating their attack. Coach Lambeau did not conceal his pleasure at Bob Monnett's fine showing last Sunday. Despite the fact that Pittsburgh's team proved unexpectedly weak, the flashy halfback turned in a brilliant performance, and Lambeau hopes that the Packer line will shake him loose for a few dashes Sunday afternoon. Mike Michalske, who has played guard ever since joining the Packers several seasons ago, was shifted to the backfield in yesterday's drill, and showed up well. Mike played fullback during his undergraduate days at Penn State, and is an excellent passer, getting plenty of distance on his tosses, and backs up the line in great shape on defense. Larry Bettencourt has been working hard in practice, and the new center is certain to share the pivot assignment with Bultman and Sarafiny Sunday. Sarafiny also has been drilled at tackle this week, to replace Perry if the latter is unable to play. Odds slightly favor the Bears. Fans have not forgotten the first meeting of the teams this year when the Packers, after leading for three periods, crumpled in the last minutes of play to permit two touchdowns and a Bear victory. The 14 to 7 decision proved lucky for the Bears, who have not dropped a game since. For the Packers, the contest has taken on a crucial nature, as the Bears rest
