GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - They put on the last Packer party of the year at the City stadium here Sunday afternoon before 4,000 fans and it was good entertainment. The Packers won over Philadelphia by a score of 35 to 9, but the score in no way indicates what a tough time the Packers had in doing it. For three periods the Eagles were plenty dangerous. They matched Green Bay's running plays with some of their own that were great to watch. They shook Steve Hanson, the former Temple flash, into the open, and when he got there he
was as sweet as any halfback the Packers have faced this year. They sent Reb Russell and Hanson through the line and they picked up many yards. They fought hard - but they couldn't keep it up. Near the end they bushed and the Packers smashed through to win decisively. There was plenty of the spectacular, as the Bays gained an early lead, scoring its first touchdown less than four minutes after the start of the game. But the advantage did not look any too big as the invaders fought back. Before the opening quarter was over the Packers had a 14 to 0 lead, but the Eagles matched one of the touchdowns, picked up two points on a Packer safety and then made a gallant bid to go into the lead in the third period.
BLOOD SAVES SCORE
Had it not been for the fleet Johnny Blood, the Eagles
might have scored in a brilliant play by Hanson in that
third period. If they had counted to give them the lead,
it might have been a different story. The play, a 51 yard
run by Hanson, who broke loose on a spinner over
right tackle, was the turning point of the game. Blood
caught him from behind on the 15 yard line, by some
great running, and the Packers wouldn't let the Eagles
advance any closer to the goal than the eight yard line
after four downs. They took the ball and punted out.
After that it was all Green Bay. It was another field day
for Buckets Goldenberg, the Packers' driving back. He
scored three touchdowns, one on a line smash, 
another after taking a short pass, and a third on a 30
yard runback of a punt. Cal Hubbard was another Bay
mainstay, breaking up many Eagle plays on the line of
scrimmage. At one time he intercepted a Philadelphia
pass and started to gallop. Two men tried to stop him.
Both were knocked out. Three others finally brought 
him down.
BACKFIELD MEN STAR
Johnny Blood, Bob Monnett and Roger Grove also 
were impressive in the Packer backfield, and Weert
Englemann likewise turned in a good peformance
before he had to retire in the second period with an
injured shoulder. After scoring the first touchdown the
Packers had trouble getting underway. Their play
lacked snap and fire and they passed up scoring
opportunities. The Eagles fought back gamely and 
were threatening when Englemann bounced out of the
Packer secondary to pull down a pass by Hanson and
race 55 yards for a second Bay score. Throughout the
second quarter the Eagles charged, tackled and
blocked better than the Packers and they had the 
edge in part of the third period. After the Eagles' 
touchdown and safety, however, the Packers began to
click again and in the final period were decidely
superior to the invaders.
ENGLEMANN SETS STAGE
Englemann set the stage for the first Packer score
when he raced around left end for 23 yards to put the
ball on the Eagle 35 yard mark. Two line smashes
netted five and Monnett faded back to toss a pass to
Blood. The halfback made a great catch on the 10,
ran to the five where he was forced out of bounds. 
Three plays later Goldenberg crashed over from the 
one foot mark for a touchdown and Monnett added the
extra point by a run around left end when the pass
from center was low and he couldn't get off a kick. The
Eagles picked up a pair of first downs on penalties and
line bucks a few minutes later to put the ball in
midfield. Hanson then faded back and tried to pass to
Kirkman. Englemann pulled down the ball on his own
45 yard mark, sidestepped Kirkman and galloped 
straight down the sidelines for a touchdown, running
past four Eagle players to score, Monnett kicked for
the extra point and Green Bay led 14 to 0. After an
exchange of punts the Packers took the ball on their
own 20 in the second quarter. Hinkle punted deep into
Eagle territory but they returned to their own 40. 
Kirkman then got off a pass to Woodruff for a first 
down on the 35 yard line. Another pass play clicked,
this time Kirkman to Hanson, who caught the ball on
the 20 yard line and raced the remaining distance to 
the goal. Kirkman kicked the goal from placement. A
pass from Monnett to Blood was good for 27 yards to
put the ball on the Eagles eight year mark a few
seconds before the half ended but the Packers had
time for only one play, which failed to gain, as the gun
sounded.
PACKERS PUSHED BACK
In the third period the Packers were pushed back to
their 20 on an exchange of punts. Hinkle, back to
punt, was unable to get the ball as Sarafiny passed it
low and wide before it rolled into the end zone. He
downed it behind the goal line for a safety, giving the 
Eagles two points. A few minutes later Hanson got off
his great run that almost upset the entire Green Bay
plans. He picked a hole off right tackle, spun through it
and continued to run. Blood, cutting over from the
center of the field, finally nailed him on the 15 yard line
with a high tackle, knocking him out of bounds. Hanson
bucked the line for seven yards but three other plays
failed to gain and the Packers took the ball on downs
and punted out of danger. Hubbard intercepted a pass
from Kirkman in midfield later in the period and ran to
the Eagles' 43. Monnett passed to Grove for a first down
on the 25. Monnett then made it a first down on the 14.
DILWEG BLOCKS KICK
Monnett passed to Gantenbein as the third quarter 
ended. Starting the final period running plays failed to
gain so Monnett dropped back and shot a short pass to
Goldenberg who ran eight yards to score. Grove kicked for the extra point. The next touchdown came a few minutes later. Blood intercepted Kirkman's pass on the 48, Monnett got off a good run of 35 yards, going to the 13 before he was stopped. Again the Eagles held and three plays failed to score. On the fourth, from a spread formation, Monnett passed to Blood for a touchdown and Grove added the point with a kick from placement. With only a few seconds to play Lavvie Dilweg blocked Kirkman's punt, and it saled to the 30 yard line where Goldenberg caught it. Buckets raced to the right and crossed the goal line standing up as Kirkman, who tried to get him, was taken out by a neat block by Dilweg. Again Grove kicked and the score was 35 to 9.

NEWS AND NOTES
PACKER GAME SIDELIGHTS
OCTOBER 30 (Green Bay) - Ten gallon hat, goatee and all, Walter Singler, accompanied by his wife, took in the game and seemed to enjoy it. After the contest he was recognized on the streets by many. Philadelphia, it is said, wanted Singler to sit on the Packer bench and call a "holiday" on those last period touchdowns...Johnny Blood ran far to one side of the field late in the game and the Packers were about to attempt a play from the shoestring formation. Roger Grove didn't get the proper signal and Blood from his position whispered: "No. 62, No. 62". Russell, who was standing in a position back of his own line, halfway between Grove and Blood, heard the former's whisper and called to the former Michigan State flash: "Blood says No. 62. Do you get it? Now let's play ball."...The boys were talking it up among themselves, especially at the start of the game, and it looked as if bad blood might crop out. There was some roughing in scrimmage, but the players kept away from fisticuffs...Cal Hubbard, on one play later in the game, demonstrated why he is a tackle without a peer. The big fellow boxed in his opponent and with a roundabout sweep, reminding one of a large scythe in a field of grain, he circled the opposing guard and piled both of the Philadelphia boys into the center of the line where he made certain they wouldn't get in the play. His ball carrier ripped through the hole for a nice gain...It was a great day football and the crowd and players both appreciated the break in the weather following several Sundays of rain and cold...Green Bay's high school band played during the intermission and made a formidable appearance in a march drill across the gridiron...Johnny Blood did the punting for the Packers at various stages of the game. He got off some good boots. Johnny gets a kick off quickly...When Hubbard intercepted a Philadelphia pass in the third period he hugged the ball to him and started to charge down the north side of the field. Joe Kresky, former Marinette star, tried to stop him - and was knocked cold. Kenneally also tried to pull him down, but was brushed aside. Three men finally pulled the big tackle to the ground...Larry Bettencourt started at center and saw considerable service. He played in the secondary in the 6-2-2-1 defense. His play was commendable...Kenneally, who has been playing professional football for some 10 years or more, performed at end for the Eagles and turned in a good jon. Kresky, a guard, also was a consistent performer for the Eagles. The invaders had the edge over the Packers in first downs in the opening hald, puling up five to four for Green Bay. The Eagles completed three of eight passes for 84 yards in the first two quarters, while the Packers made two of six good for 52 yards...It was "homecoming" for former Packer stars. Among former players on hand were Charley Mathys, Fee Klaus, Cub Buck, Myrt Basing, Sam Powers, Joe Secor, Norbert Hayes and Frank Desjardin...Englemann was hurt after intercepting an Eagle pass in the second quarter. He retired shortly thereafter but is expected to be in shape again in a few days...Lavvie Dilweg turned in some good blocking for the Packers. When Goldenberg caught the punt partly blocked by Dilweg, the end took out Kirkman with a neat swipe to let Goldenberg score...In the fourth quarter with the ball on the Eagle two yard line, Goldenberg fumbled. Rudy Comstock recovered for Green Bay, however. Incidentally, Rudy turned in another fine game at guard. He can always be depended upon to do his share, and a little bit more.
​CURLY FINDS A PLACE FOR BUCKETS; HELPS CLUB
OCTOBER 30 (Green Bay) - Sunday's game with Philadelphia was just the right kind of "breather" before we start on our road trip against the Chicago Cardinals next Sunday. It was just tough enough to be a good workout, but not so tough that we couldn't take it in stride. It's as much a problem, you know, to keep a pro team up Sunday after Sunday as it is to keep a college eleven up Saturday after Saturday. The things that affect the mental attitude of a college team, and of which we hear so much, also affect a pro team. So a break in the schedule like this is always welcome. Our general play suffered, perhaps, because of the letdown, but we expected that. We didn't block the way we did, for instance, against the Bears, or we didn't tackle as cleanly. And we fumbled. But none of these slips were at all discouraging. They just had to be. They were part of the general easing up all around. Hinkle made his debut as a halfback for us and I think showed that he can fit in anywhere in the backfield. The shift was made in order to get more out of Buckets Goldenberg. Hinkle and Goldenberg are both too valuable to alternate at fullback. They both belong in the ball game at the same time. I think we're stronger because of the shift. I liked Monnett's work at halfback again. He handles himself more like a pro league veteran than a first year man, and from what he has shown in the last few games I wouldn't hesitate to put him in the lineup regardless of the situation, either offensively and defensively. In Monnett, Goldenberg and Hinkle, who joined us only last year, I think we have three of the best young backs in the league. They'll raise a lot of trouble around before they finally hang up their shoes. With Sunday's game out of the way, we swing into the really hard part of the schedule. We hit the road, and on the next four Sundays play the Chicago Cardinals, Portsmouth, Boston and the New York Giants. It is bad enough to face four such teams on four successive weeks at home, but it becomes worse when you have to play them on their home lots. We'll be at our full strength to start the invasion anyway. Herber, who did not play Sunday because of a bad foot, ought to be ready again next week, and Bruder, who has been down with the flu, ought to be fully recovered. They can't be well soon enough, however, because we'll need them.
PACKERS BEGIN PREPARING FOR CARDINAL TILT
OCTOBER 31 (Green Bay) - Coach E.L. Lambeau sent his Green Bay Packers through a stiff drill this morning, and surveyed the squad with respect to possible injuries while pointing for the game with the Chicago Cardinals, scheduled for Wrigley field next Sunday afternoon. The team came out of the Philadelphia contest with a minimum of injuries, and Lambeau hopes to have his squad intact for the Cardinal game. Successive close beatings by the Bears and Brooklyn have left the Cards in anything but a receptive frame of mind and the Green Bay coach expects that his full strength will be needed to halt Joe Lillard, Dick Nesbitt and the rest of the Chicagoans. Englemann, who hooked a pass and got away for a 55 yard touchdown spring against the Eagles, came out of the game with an injured shoulder, but has five days in which to give the injury the attention it deserves. Hank Bruder, once again in uniform, sat on the bench Sunday, but Coach Lambeau did not care to take any chances, and the ailing back participated in the game only as did the other 4,000 spectators. Arnold Herber also was on the bench, but he was in civilian clothes and his injured ankle required the support of a crutch. Herber's passing was not needed in the Philadelphia contest, as Bob Monnett got off ten neat tosses, six of which were completed to a variety of receivers, and none intercepted. Hinkle, Grove and Blood also tried their hands at flipping the ball, with less success. Goldenberg, who is building up quite a reputation as a "spot" player, happened to be in th4ight place twice Sunday, and as a result he now leads the National league scoring list. Buckets speared a pass which Monnett appeared trying to ground, and on another occasions got under an Eagle punt, which Dilweg had blocked partially. Both times the stock Packer fullback pounded through for touchdowns. Lambeau is paying less and less attention to his quarterback worries, as Blood and Grove are handling the squad in excellent shape. But for a few defensive lapses, and more than usual luck by opposition, the Packers would be leading the league today, instead of praying some team to last the full route against the Chicago Bears. The Packers will leave for Chicago Saturday, and make their headquarters at the Knickerbocker hotel. The game will start at 2:15 o'clock the following afternoon at Wrigley field, and the usual representation of Green Bay fans will be on hand to support the team. Only the amazing habit of the Bears to crash through in a belated rally, and the accuracy of Benny Friedman's passing arm handed the Cardinals defeats in their last two starts. Coach Schissler plans a vigorous comeback at the expense of the Packers, which he regards as an in-and-out team, vulnerable to breaks of the game.
MOTT IS RELEASED
OCTOBER 31 (Green Bay) - Buster Mott, the former
Georgia halfback, who joined the Green Bay Packer
squad this year but broke a bone in his foot early in the
year to keep him out of action, has been released to the
Philadelphia Eagles, it was announced today by Coach
E.L. Lambeau. Mott's injured foot is healing rapidly and
he is expected to report to Philadelphia in about two
weeks.
GOLDENBERG ON TOP IN LEAGUE SCORING RACE
OCTOBER 31 (Columbus, OH) - Charles (Buckets)
Goldenberg, freshman fullback of the Green Bay
Packers, today leads the NFL in scoring, as a result of
the three touchdowns he scored against Philadelphia
last Sunday. Presnell, Portsmouth ace, has been 
pushed down to second, and his spot is menaced by
Ken Strong, New York Giant halfback, who chalked up
ten points against the Chicago Bears and clambered to
third place. Cliff Battles of Boston is in fourth position,
Jim Musick of the same team holds fifth, and sixth goes
to Harry Newman of the Giants, all closely bunched. 
The kicking accuracy of Bob Monnett in Green Bay has
kept him in seventh place, and Johnny Blood of the
Packers is in eighth. Ninth is a tie among Dade Burnett,
New York; Shipwreck Kelly, Brooklyn; Bo Molenda, 
New York; Luke Johnsos, Chicago Bears, and Ken
Richards of the Giants, all of whom have scored three
touchdowns. The Giants lead in diversity of scoring, ten
members of that team appearing on the list. Green Bay
is second with nine, and the other teams are listed as
follows: Portsmouth and Pittsburgh, seven; Boston and
Bears, six; Brooklyn, five; Cardinals, four; Philadelphia,
two, and Cincinnati, one.
PACKERS' DEFENSE BEST IN NATIONAL GRIDIRON
CIRCUIT
OCTOBER 31 (New York) - Boston's high-powered
Redskins still retain ground gaining honors in the NFL
 while the Green Bay Packers cling to the best defensive
record. Boston has gained a total of 1,804 yards in
seven games for an average of 257 5/7 yards per game
as compared with Portsmouth's average of 241 5/6, New
York's 239 3/7 and Brooklyn's 222 1/4. Green Bay has
permitted the opposition an average of only 149 2/7
yards per game as against 152 1/2 for Portsmouth, 165
1/2 for the champion Bears and 192 for Brooklyn. New
York leads all rivals in passing with 43 completions in
86 attempts and tops them all in total points with 147.
Green Bay with 127 in the only other club over the
century mark. Portsmouth has permitted the fewest
points, 30, followed by the Bears with 33.
CARDS MEET PACKERS
OCTOBER 31 (Chicago) - The Green Bay Packers and
the Chicago Cardinals, two of the oldest rivals in pro
football, will clash Sunday afternoon at Wrigley field. It
will be the nineteenth meeting of the teams in the series
which started in 1921. The Packers were victorious in
ten, the Cardinals in six, and two were ties. The Cards
are due in Chicago today from the east. Dr. David J.
Jones, president of the club, announced that the Nov. 
12 game with Cincinnati at Wrigley field will be Ladies' 
Day. Requests for tickets must be accompanied by 
self-addressed and stamped envelopes, and must be
mailed to Dr. Jones in care of the Cardinals, Wrigley
field, Chicago.
BRUDER REJOINS PACKERS; FACES CARDS
SUNDAY
NOVEMBER 1 (Chicago) - Hank Bruder, former
Northwestern field star, is expected to be in the Green
Bay Packer lineup against the Chicago Cardinals at
Wrigley field Sunday afternoon. Bruder was ill and was
not able to play against the Bears Sunday before last.
The fact that the Packers are favorites isn't worrying
Coach Paul Schissler and the Cards in the least, and
judging from the way they played the Bears, their
attitude is justified...IT'S LILLARD VS. HERBER: In Joe
Lillard, the Cards have as dangerous a back at Arnold
Herber, the spark plug of the Packers, for he can run,
pass, punt and kick from placement. The Bears didn't
stop him consistently and as a result had to come from
behind to win, 12 to 9. The Cards are preparing to use
everything they have, for they are definitely out as a
championship contender, and will take all kinds of
chances. A victory over Green Bay would go a long way
toward erasing those early losses, two of which were by
the margin of one point. In the matter of punting the
Cards have Lillard to match Clark Hinkle...SPEED IS
CARDINAL FORTE: The Cardinal line is almost as 
husky as that of the Packers, but the backs are a few
pounds lighter on the average. This deficit has been the
biggest problem with which Schissler has had to 
contend all season. He has overcome the lack of drive
by speed to a noticeable extent. The kickoff Sunday will
be made 15 minutes earlier than heretofore this season,
being set for 2 o'clock.
PACKERS-CARDS TO RENEW OLD PRO RIVALRY
NOVEMBER 1 (Green Bay) - The second oldest rivaly
between the Green Bay Packers and a National league 
rival will be resumed at Wrigley field, Chicago, Sunday afternoon, when the Bays meet the Cardinals for the nineteenth time. It will be their only meeting of the present season. Of the 18 games played to date, the Packers have taken ten, the Cardinals have won six, and two ended in ties. Field goals by Paddy Driscoll and Curly Lambeau, one for each team, caused the 1921 tie decision, when the teams met for the first time. Driscoll's kick came in the closing minutes of the game, when the Packers were in possession of an apparent victory...LOSE 1922 GAME: The worst defeat ever suffered by the Packers at the hands of the Cardinals came in 1933, when the Bays lost, 16 to 3. The McMahon boys, playing in the Chicago backfield, pounded the Packer line to shreds, and only once did the Bay team score, on Charlie Mathys' field goal. The ever-present Driscoll hoisted over a field goal in the 1924 goal to give the Cardinals their only score, and the Packers lost, 3 to 0. That the game in which Cub Buck, Packer lineman who was the Cal Hubbard of his day, missed six or seven placements, and Tilly Voss, Green Bay end, ran 70 yards only to stub his toe before scoring. In the 1925 tilt, which went to the Cardinals, 9 to 6, a feature was a free-for-all on the field, in which Packer fans mixed freely. George Abramson of Green Bay kicked two field goals in the first half, but an allegedly illegal forward pass, Dunn to Driscoll, gave the Cards a touchdown. Late in the game Driscoll broke the tie with a field goal...TWO 1926 GAMES: The rivals met twice in 1926, which marked the Bays' first victory over the Chicagoans. In the first tilt of the season the Cardinals took a 13 to 7 decision when Red Dunn ran wild at Green Bay, after the Packers apparently had the contest well under wraps. At Chicago the Packers won, 3 to 0, on Pid Purdy's field goal. Green Bay began to have pennant aspirations in 1927, but the best they could do against the Cardinals was one victory in two games. The Chicago team was drubbed, 13 to 0, at Green Bay, but at Chicago, the Packers were held to a 6-all tie. The 1928 game, which the Packers won 20 to 0, broke Chris O'Brien's back as Cardinal manager. The Cards were favored to win, but Coach Guy Chamberlain's crew ran into stiff opposition, and faded under the pressure of two first half touchdowns. The team broke up after that defeat, and failed to complete the season...WIN THREE TILTS: Under the ownership of Dr. David J. Jones, the Cards were back in the race in 1929, but they took three close trimmings just the same. The Packers came out on top in the firs tilt, 9 to 2, and won at Chicago by scores of 7 to 6 and 13 to 0. The Packers were sweeping to their second National league title in 1930, but they could no better than break even with the Cardinals. At Green Bay the Packers won on touchdowns by Lewellen and Dilweg, followed by Molenda and Dunn's placements, but at Chicago the Bays' long victory string was snapped, 13 to 6. Belden and Nevers got touchdowns for the winners, with Nevers adding an extra point. McCrary got the Bay touchdown. Trailing by 7 to 0 in the first 1931 contest, the Packers went wild in the second half, and scored four touchdowns to win, 26 to 7. Rogge got the Cardinal touchdown, and Nevers booted the extra point. Three of the Packer touchdowns were scored by Blood, Lewellen go another, and Dunn kicked the extra points...LOSE IN CHICAGO: Nevers' sensational game at Chicago later in the season sealed the Packers' doom in that contest, 21 to 13. Nash and Bruder scored touchdowns for the losers, and Dunn kicked one extra point. Cardinal touchdowns were scored by Creighton, Rose and Kassel, with Nevers booting all three extra points. Green Bay won both of last years' games. At Green Bay the score was 15 to 9., Bruder and Michalske scoring touchdowns and Harry O'Boyle kicking a field goal for the winners. The Cardinal points came on a touchdown and goal kick by Hill, plus a safety. At Chicago the Packers won 13 to 9. Blood scored two touchdowns for Green Bay, kicked an extra point. Moynihan blocked a punt for the long Cardinal touchdown and Hill kicked the point.
CARDINALS SET FOR INVASION BY GREEN BAY
NOVEMBER 2 (Chicago) - The Cardinals will make their first home appearance against an out of town opponent at Wrigley field Sunday, when they face the Green Bay Packers in an important National league tilt. The only other game the Cards have played here brought them into action against the Bears on Oct. 15, when the powerful Bruins rallied to take a 12 to 9 decision. After two upsets in the east, the Cardinals are anxious to regain popular favor by trimming the strong Green Bay eleven, which has developed an in-and-out complex this season. As the Packers chalked up an impressive victory over Philadelphia last week, the Cardinals figure that they will catch the former National champions on the offbeat and administer the blow that will end definitely all championship aspirations of the invaders...NESBITT WITH TEAM: Dick Nesbitt and Swede Hansen, former Bear backfield luminaries, are expected to cause the Packers no little trouble Sunday. Both men have looked exceedingly well with the Cards, and the Chicago management has expressed high satisfaction with the deal which brought the backs to the team. Three former college pals will face each other on opposite sides of the professional scrimmage line. Mike Koken, Cardinal quarterback who has earned his spurs in the postgraduate game, will have little time to shake hands with his teammates of Notre Dame, Joe Kurth and Norm Greeney of the Packers. Paul Schissler, Cardinal coach who formerly taught football at Oregon, has been working this week to build up a strong defense against the vaunted Packer aerial attack. The Cardinals boast a veteran line, and are not worried about the Green Bay ground gainers, but they have a wholesome respect for the invaders' overhead prowess, and this has resulted in extra skull sessions for the Cardinal backs...HAVE VETERAN ENDS: Brute Kiesling, all-American professional guard, and Capt. Mike McNally, center, are two players familiar with the Packers' style of play, both having aided in previous upsets of the Bay team. McNally in particular has a habit of playing his head off when the Packers are providing the opposition, and Sunday's game is expected to prove no exception. Rogge, Creighton and Kassel are three veteran ends, while Williams and Gordon provide a brace of guards capable of playing 60 minutes of hard football. The Cardinal management expects a big crowd, as the Packers always draw well here. The weather in Chicago has been close to midsummer levels this week, and if rain holds off before the weekend, season attendance records at Wrigley field may be under fire.
GIANTS BEST SCORERS
NOVEMBER 2 (Columbus, OH) - Although the Green Bay Packers moved up to within 20 points of the New York Giants, the Gotham Gallopers continue to lead the NFL with 147 points. The two teams are the only members of the circuit to have crossed the century mark in scoring. Cincinnati, offensively, is the weak sister of the league as the Reds haven't counted a point in four league contests. Defensively Brooklyn in four games has allowed its opponents but 31 points while the Chicago Bears in six games have allowed 33 points. Philadelphia has allowed opponents the most points with 126 while Pittsburgh ranks second weakest with 118 counters for the opposition.
NESBITT BACK WITH CARDS FOR PACKERS
NOVEMBER 2 (Chicago) - Dick Nesbitt of the Cardinals will be available for action against the Green Bay Packers at Wrigley field Sunday afternoon, according to Coach Paul Schissler. Dick, who went to the Cards from the Bears a few weeks ago, made the eastern trip, but was handicapped due to a leg injury. The former Drake player hit his stride yesterday in drills. Schissler doubtless will depend upon him to punt against Clark Hinkle...HOPES TO CHANGE NESBITT'S STYLE: Nesbitt will play at fullback. In using him at that position instead of his regular role at halfback, Schissler is endeavoring to change Dick's style of hitting the line from running straight up to crouching. The coach believes this will enable Nesbitt to gain more ground. The Cards have been lacking in line drive due mostly to lightness of backs. Nesbitt, who weighs 203 pounds, has the necessary weight and speed as well...MAY JOIN ONE OF NEW CLUBS: When the club left for the east, Chuck Kassel, who has other interests here, was left at home under technical suspension, but upon the Cards' return he was automatically restored to the roster. To keep within the 22 player limit proscribed by the National league, George Rogge, veteran end, was released. Rogge, who came to the Cardinals three years ago, was a graduate of Iowa. It is expected he will join one of the three new clubs in the circuit - Pittsburgh, Cincinnati or Philadelphia.
PACKER BACKS IN POOR SHAPE FOR CARDINALS
NOVEMBER 3 (Chicago) - Despite a crippled backfield, Green Bay's football team today pointed for the Cardinal game at Wrigley field, Chicago, Sunday, hoping to start their eastern invasion off on the right foot with a victory over the Chicagoans. With only three backfield men in perfect shape, Coach E.L. Lambeau was in a quandary as to his starting lineup. All linemen are in good condition, but injuries have hit the backfield hard and often. Clark Hinkle, fullback, Bob Monnett, halfback, and Roger Grove, quarterback, are the backs who are in the pink, others suffering injuries that will handicap them if not keep them out of action...HERBER IS OUT: Arnold Herber is definitely out of the picture as an ankle is still swollen and he cannot put on a shoe. Buckets Goldenberg also has a leg injury that has kept him hobbling all week. Weert Englemann's injured arm and shoulder are giving him trouble and Johnny Blood has an injured forearm and hand. Blood probably will be able to play, however. Hank Bruder, who has been out two weeks with influenza, has returned to practice, although still weak. He will be able to play at least part of the game Sunday. The squad will head for Chicago over the Chicago and Northwestern railroad at 2:40 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The coach fears the toughest possible reception at the hands of the Cardinals as they have been losing games by small margins lately and will be in the mood to make trouble for the Packers...FOUR OFFICIALS TO WORK: Four officials have been named for the contest with George Laurie, Chicago, working as referee; Meyer Morris, Rock Island, umpire; Wildfred Smith, Chicago, head linesman, and Leroy Cigrand, Aurora, field judge. Both railroads running to Chicago will feature special excursions over the weekend, and it is likely that a considerable group of fans will follow the team for its only appearance this season against the Cards. The kickoff has been set for 2:15 o'clock.
CRUCIAL GAMES SUNDAY
NOVEMBER 3 (New York) - The Chicago Bears, unbeaten champions, open a three-game eastern invasion on Sunday when they oppose the Boston Redskins in a NFL game. The Portsmouth Spartans, only half a game behind the Bears in the western division race, meet the New York Giants, eastern leaders, in New York. The Pittsburgh Pirates and Brooklyn Dodgers will clash in Ebbets field, Brooklyn. The Philadelphia Eagles invade Cincinnati, and the Green Bay Packers oppose the Cardinals in Chicago in other league games listed Sunday. A new leader in both divisions is possible following these games. The Bears must win to keep ahead of the Spartans, and the Giants must also triumph to hold their slim margin of half a game on three other eastern clubs, Boston, Pittsburgh and Brooklyn. With the four pacesetters clashing two of the best contests of the season seems assured. 
97 COLLEGES REPRESENTED
NOVEMBER 3 (Columbus, OH) - Ninety-seven colleges are represented among the players of the NFL. Big Ten schools furnish 40 of these players, by far the biggest percentage of any other section. Only one Big Ten school has no alumni representation on the rosters of the ten major league football clubs, and that is the University of Chicago. Purdue and Michigan with seven of their graduates in pro ranks, along with Notre Dame, contribute more than any other single institution. Northwestern furnishes six, Wisconsin five, Iowa and Illinois four, Minnesota three and Ohio State two...SIX FROM ALABAMA: Alabama leads the southern schools in sending players up with six in pro ranks, while Southern California, Washington State and Oregon State, each with five, are strongest of the Far Western schools. From the southwest, Texas has sent up five. Grouped in sending four to the circuit are Carnegie Tech, Davis-Elkins, Marquette, Nebraska, Syracuse, St. Mary's of California, Kentucky, Grove City, Holy Cross, Butler, Tennessee, Chattanooga, W. and J., and Emporia Teachers. The balance comes from widely scattered spots and little known schools such as Milliken, Luther, W. Liberty, Monmouth, Simpson, St. Regis, Knox and numerous other institutions better known.
CARDINALS GET CRIPPLES READY FOR PACKERS GAME
NOVEMBER 3 (Chicago) - The Chicago Cardinals, for the first time in three weeks, expect to have full strength against the Green Bay Packers at Wrigley field Sunday afternoon. Hounded by ill luck because of injuries before and during games, the Cardinals believe they are due for a break. In the Boston and Brooklyn games, its last two contests, Joe Lillard played a total of 35 minutes. In the Boston game, he was hurt in 
GREEN BAY INVADES CHICAGO FOR GAME WITH CARD ELEVEN
NOVEMBER 4 (Chicago) - With its powerful line in fine
shape but with a backfield riddled by injuries, Green
Bay begins the final lap in the National league race
tomorrow afternoon at Chicago, facing the Cardinals in
the first of the long road series. The game begins at
Wrigley field at 2 p.m. The game will be the first of 
seven for Green Bay away from home. Others will follow
in Portsmouth, New York, Boston, Staten Island and 
Philadelphia before the team returns to the west to meet
the Chicago Bears at Wrigley field Dec. 10. Trailing the
league-leading Bears by three games, the Packers 
must win every tilt from now to the end to be in the race
for top honors. It will be a hard road, with the Cardinals
placing a stiff obstacle in their path in the opening game
...MUST WIN ALL: With a record of three wins, one tie
and three defeats in the first seven games, the Packers
believe they are capable of winning the remaining six
league tilts and one non-league game to gain at least a
tie with the Bears for western honors. They believe the
Bears will meet defeat at least twice on the road and 
will lose to Green Bay in the final game at Chicago. If
this happens, and the Portsmouth Spartans lose two
more games, the Packers have a chance for the title.
Coach E.L. Lambeau is worried over the Cardinal game
but believes his men will be able to upset the Cards.
Because of the imposing list of backfield injuries, two or
three of the backs probably have to play 60 minutes of
football. He is counting on his line to stop everything
thrown at it by the Cards and if the backs can handle
the pass defense, the Packers should walk off with a
victory as the Chicagoans have not shown a great deal
this year...LILLARD IN SHAPE: The Chicagoans have
been beset with some bad breaks, however, and are
sure to be at their best when they face Green Bay. Joe
Lillard, who has been handicapped with a bad leg
recently, is in fine shape again and set to go. The Negro
flash is as good an all-around performer as there is in
the circuit today. Dick Nesbitt, recently acquired from
the Bears, also should be in top form as he has been
with the team long enough now to know all of the Card
formations. The Cardinals also have Hanson, Ledbetter,
Koken and Malloy, all good backs, ready for service. 
Koken and Malloy have been turning in some good work
at quarterback. Fullbacks are Hinchman and Ledbetter.
On the line Creighton and Kassel will be at ends. Both
are veteran wingmen and have turned in some good
football against the Packers in the past. At tackles,
Williams, Gordon and Tinsley, veterans of two or more
years, are available. Bergerson, Graham, Kiesling and
Handler are well known figures who perform at guard
while three centers are available: Tim Moynihan, veteran
from Notre Dame, McNally and Yarr. The line is heavy
and experienced...HANK MAY PLAY: Coach Lambeau
expects Grove, Blood, Hinkle and Monnett to get most 
of the work in the Packer backfield. Bruder, who has been sick for two weeks, is better, but still weak, and may not be able to play more than a short time. Englemann, Goldenberg and Herber are out with injuries and probably will not be used. Claude Perry, tackle, who has been out with an injured leg for some time, will be ready for action again. The team ran through a light drill this morning and left this afternoon over the Northwestern road. In Chicago, headquarters are at the Knickerbocker hotel. The players will return to Green Bay Monday and later in the week leave for Portsmouth and the east.

Aside from the Chicago Bears, the pennant chase is close with a half dozen teams fighting for the other top positions...Lud Wray is still experimenting with his Philadelphia eleven. To date the former Penn mentor has hired and fired about 50 players and he intends to continue his changes until he develops something like a winner...There will be a lot of fur flying around the Polo Grounds this Sunday when Portsmouth and the Giants lock horns. Steve Owen's club is still sour over what happened on the Spartans' home lot in one of the early season tilts...The Chicago Bears are apt to bump into a lot of opposition in Boston. This is the opening fray of a crucial three-game road trip for the Halas-men in the east who seem to have just about clinched a place in the playoff fracas...Possession of the cellar championship will be at stake in Cincinnati where the Reds and Philadelphia are slated to have it out. The urge should be plenty as both clubs will be fighting for their first win of the season...Jap Douds, coach of the Pittsburgh aggregation, has hopes for bringing home the bacon from Brooklyn this Sunday. His Pirates are playing an improved brand of ball but they will have to be at their peak to whip the Dodgers...Dan Blaine's Stapleton club is giving all the National league elevens plenty of trouble. Last Sunday, the Stapes bowed to Portsmouth, 14 to 7, but only after a battle which had all the spectators on their tiptoes...Business at the gate continues good all around the circuit. according to official reports received by President Joe F. Carr. New York, Boston and Chicago clubs are playing before 20,000 plus crowds every weekend...Continuing their last quarter rally tactics, the Chicago Bears came from behind last Sunday and nosed out the New York Giants, 14 to 10. As usual, Bill Hewitt, end extraordinary, had a hand in the winning touchdown play...Pittsburgh pulled the biggest surprise of the season by defeating Boston, 16 to 14. The Pirates, with their full strength back on the gridiron, clicked splendidly against the Redskins for two touchdowns and a field goal...Neither Lilllard nor Nesbitt, star halfbacks for the Chicago Cardinals, were able to pick up much yardage against Brooklyn and the Dodgers thanks to feature passing by Benny Friedman, chalked up a 7 to 0 gridiron success...Even a broken collarbone isn't keeping Tom Jones, New York guard, from helping the Giants. The husky center flanker has been appointed chief scout by Owner Tim Mara.

His pro ball has been played at Stapleton...Owners of the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh clubs are expected a golden harvest after the Nov. 7 election. Lifting of the ban on Sunday sports is an issue at the polls and "those in the know" forecast an overwhelming victory...Jack Westphal got even with Boston for releasing him to Pittsburgh as he headlined the Pirates' attack against the Redskins. He made one of the touchdowns besides performing brilliantly when his club was on the defensive...Bo Molenda doesn't ever seem to grow old. The Giants' veteran fullback is having another great year on the postgraduate gridiron. In last Sunday's game with the Bears, Molenda was one of the bright spots for the New Yorkers.
CARDINALS PLOT UPSET TODAY IN PACKER BATTLE
NOVEMBER 5 (Chicago) - The Cardinals return to Wrigley field today after their recent eastern trip to meet the Green Bay Packers in a National league game. The game will be a resumption of a professional football rivalry that is second only to that between the Bears and the once all conquering Packers. It will be the 19th meeting between the two elevens. The Packers hold the edge in the series to date, having won ten games as against six for the Cardinals. Two games have ended in ties. Today the Packers will take the field the favorites to the fans at large, but not to the Cardinals nor to the Packers themselves. Green Bay, in half a season, has lost as many games as in any of the last four years, and thus is not confident, despite the fact the Cards have won only one league battle...CAN'T BOTH WEAKEN TODAY: The Packers have seen games snatched away in the final stages, but so have the Cardinals. Both have had the Bears on the run until the closing minutes. The Cards led the Bears, 9 to 0, in the first half, which was better than the Packers could do at Wrigley field, and it took a placekick on the part of the Bears to win, 12 to 9. The Redbirds must be conceded a chance to knock over the fast running, hard hitting and clever passing outfit from the north. All week Coach Schissler and his men have worked trying to get more speed out of the comparatively light backs and endeavoring to build a defense for Herber's passes to Blood, not to mention the line thrusts of Bruder, Hinkle, Monnett, Mott and Goldenberg. The Cardinal line generally has held its own this season, and with Tom Moynihan back in prime condition, Schissler isn't worrying so much about that department. It's the Green Bay aerial attack that is the bogey today...GOLDENBERG LEADS SCORERS: Incidentally, Goldenberg, known to his mates as Buckets, has the league lead in scoring with 42 points, but it will be Monnett, Bruder and Hinkle whom the Cards will be watching most closely. Chuck Kassel, veteran end, returned to the Cards this week and see action today, although Dave Nisbet and Milan Creighton have been named to start. This trio will have Lavvie Dilweg, Al Rose and Milt Gantenbein as opposition, in addition to the lesser known Ben Smith, who is in his first year of schooling at Alabama. With the exception of Joe Lillard, who played half a season last year with the Cardinals, the Chicago backfield is a new one, with Mike Koken slated to start at quarterback, Hal Moe at half, and Hubert Hinchman at fullback...NESBITT VS. HINKLE: Dick Nesbitt, who transferred from the Bears a few days ago, will be used at fullback today. His punting is expected to offset the tremendous boots of Hinkle.
GREEN BAY PACKERS TO MEET CHICAGO CARDS AT CUB'S PARK SUNDAY
NOVEMBER 5 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers will open the last half of their season, the traveling half, against another old Chicago rival, the Cardinals, at Cubs' Park Sunday afternoon. It will be the first time the clubs meet this season. Through a conflict in dates, it was impossible to arrange a home and home series and bring the Cardinals here as in other years. Although defeated twice on their recent invasion of the east, the Cardinals, now coached by Paul Schissler, late of Oregon, are not regarded lightly in the Packer camp and all week Coach Curly Lambeau has driven his team at top speed. The club is again in excellent shape with Bruder and Herber, the two chief cripples of the last two weeks, back in harness and ready to start. The Cardinals will present a veteran pro league lineup, which probably accounts for the high regard in which the Packers hold them. Creighton Rogge and Kassel at ends, Gordon, Tinsley and Williams at tackles, Kiesling and Graham at guards and Moynihan, McNally and Yarr at center all have had considerable previous pro league experience in the line. In the backfield the Packers will meet an old nemesis, Dick Nesbitt, late of the Chicago Bears, and Ledbetter. Four officials have been assigned to the game. George Laurie of Chicago as referee, Meyer Morris of Rock Island as umpire, Wee Willie Smith of Chicago as head linesman and Leroy Cygrand of Aurora as field judge. Sunday's appearance at Chicago will be the Packers' last in these parts until December 10 when they close the season in the third game with the Chicago Bears. They will hit the trail east next week meet and will meet Portsmouth, Boston, Nw York, Staten Island and Philadelphia.
Green Bay Packers (3-3-1) 35, Philadelphia Eagles (0-3) 9
​Sunday October 29th 1933 (at Green Bay)
the first quarter and forced to retire. He played only a short time in the second half...NESBITT IS READY: Against Brooklyn he was forced out shortly after the second quarter started. Cliff Hansen was unable to play the second half of this game because of injuries. That this contributed to two defeats there is no doubt, Lillard is the spark plug of the outfit, and Hansen, who started the season with the Bears, is a consistent ground gainer. Dick Nesbitt, too, was handicapped by a sore leg, but as he had joined the club only a short time before the trip east, he was not counted on for the Boston game...THIS IS NO. 19: Since the Cardinals and Packers started their series in 1921 they have met 18 times. Only two deadlocks were played. The Cards were victorious the last time in the second game in 1931, 21 to 13. The Packers won last year, 15 to 7 and 19 to 9. The Packers are due in town Saturday night. Two special trains of Wisconsin fans are to accompany the squad.
CARDINALS ARE READY TO WHIP THOSE PACKERS
NOVEMBER 4 (Chicago) - A three hour workout yesterday and a light signal drill today completes the Cardinals' preparation for the Green Bay Packer game tomorrow at Wrigley field. The starting kickoff has been moved up to 2 o'clock. Coach Paul Schissler expressed himself as satisfied that all that can be done to stop the Packers has been done. Throughout the league the opinion prevails that the Cardinals are a better team than their record indicates. An analysis of all but one game, that with Brooklyn, bears this out. Brooklyn won 7 to 0 on passes and had an edge on gains from scrimmage, but in other games the Cards were defeated only by desperate measures...MOYNIHAN IS READY: Three of them in particular reveal the Cardinals' strength. The Chicagoans lost to Pittsburgh, 14 to 13, to Portsmouth, 7 to 6, and to the Bears, 12 to 9. Pittsburgh is a close second to New York in the eastern division and the Bears and Portsmouth are one, two in the western group, the former undefeated and untied in six starts and the latter beaten once in the same number of games. The Cardinals, definitely out as a contender, are prepared to take any kind of a chance against Green Bay. With Tim Moynihan hitting his usual pace at center and Dick Nesbitt learning Schissler's policies, the Cardinals are stronger than they have been at any time this year. Bob Monnett, who is in his freshman season in professional football, and Buster Mott, another newcomer, have been named to start for Green Bay. Both were particularly impressive against the Bears...BEWARE OF PASSES: Herber and Blood, the most dangerous forward pass combination in this league, also will play. Schissler worked the Cards all week on a defense for this pair. Hank Bruder, who was ill for the Bear game, is reported to be available for Sunday's tilt and has been provided for in the Cardinal pass defense plan.
DUKE MILHEAM MAY MAKE TRIP WITH PACKERS
NOVEMBER 4 (Beloit) - Duke Milheam, one-man football team who turned pro and joined the Fort Atkinson Blackhawks, has a big reason for doing his best with the Blackhawks when they play the St. Louis Gunners at St. Louis Sunday afternoon. He may be invited to join the Green Bay Packers on their eastern invasion. The former Beloit High School and Notre Dame players is not under contract with Fort Atkinson, playing under a percentage agreement which varies according to the gate receipt. The Duke's big opportunity came in the Blackhawks' trouncing of the Rapids-Dells team last week when he outplayed with such stars as Mickey McGuire, Moose Krueger, Herb Bitser and Wimmer.
