During a 7-6 season, the very existence of the Packers is threatened due to a 1932 court case involving a fan falling out of the stands at City Stadium. The fan wins a $5,000 verdict, which put the insurance company out of business. The Packers would go into receivership, and were about to fold, but Green Bay businessmen came to the rescue after the 1934 season, making the year a success despite the less-than-spectacular record.
In the first 18 years of their history, the Packers have had many narrow escapes. In 1922, when their sponsors owed $1,600 in back salaries, local businessmen formed a corporation to finance the team. The Packers repaid their benefactors by attracting as many as 15,000 spectators to a single Green Bay game. Then, the fates turned fickle. Willard Bent, a fan, fell off the grandstand in 1932 and sued the team for $20,000. In March 1933, he won a $5,200 award from the courts. Since the insurance company with which the Packers were insured went into bankruptcy during the trial and was a mutual company, the franchise was forced to pay the settlement, resulting in the Packers' debt balloning up to $10,000 and heading into receivership. It appeared the Packers were on the verge of folding or moving. In fact, a December 1933 article in the Chicago Tribune, claimed "the Green Bay Packers will move to Milwaukee next fall and if the change is not made then it certainly will be made in 1935".  The Packers had played one game in Milwaukee in 1933, under pressure from league officials after an expansion application was received in 1930 and 1931. The game attracted 12,467 fans, two thousand of them coming down from Green Bay. In 1934, Green Bay played two home games in Milwaukee, though did not move permanently. NFL officials gave the team one last chance to improve its financial position. In early 1935, the Green Bay Association of Commerce kicked off a $10,000 fundraising campaign through the sale of nonvoting stock. $13,029 was raised and the Packer survived, once again, to play another day.

The penmanship of NFL pioneer Curly Lambeau (1898-1965) remains one of the hobby's most scarce football signatures, and here offered is an ideally potent example. Lambeau's message to University of Iowa guard/defensive end Francis "Zud" Schammel was typed on "Green Bay Football Corporation" letterhead, and the letter reads: "Dear 'Zud': - I have been expecting your signed contract every day, but at the present writing have not heard from you. I should like very much to have your signature and will promise not to give any publicity until I have your permission. - With kindest regards, - Sincerely, (signed) Curly Lambeau."
MARCH 24 (Oshkosh) - Champ Seibold, former High school football, track and basketball star, was signed today to play football with the Green Bay Packers of the National Professional league. Arthur W. Bystrom, sports editor of the Green Bay paper, received a call from E.L. Lambeau, Packer coach from Milwaukee stating that Seibold had been signed. Seibold graduated from High school in 1931, attending Ripon for part of a school year and then transferred to Wisconsin this year and was hailed as a future All-America prospect at tackle. A week or 10 days ago it was learned that he was barred from the Big Ten because of a misunderstanding which grew out of his transfer to Wisconsin from Ripon.
APRIL 30 (Green Bay) - Phil Poth, Gonzaga, Cal., a 227 pound guard, has been signed for the 1934 season by the Green Bay Packers of the National Professional Football league. He is the fifth new players obtained by the Packers.
MAY 18 (Green Bay) - E.L. (Curly) Lambeau, coach of the Green Bay Packers football team, is being sued by his wife, Marguerite, for divorce, it was learned definitely Friday and he already is complying with a court order to pay her temporary alimony. Mr. and Mrs. Lambeau, on friendly terms although they have been separated for several weeks, conferred Friday morning in the officer of her attorney, Allan V. Classon. An effort was being made to settle the case without a divorce hearing, it was said. If this is not done, the case will go to court in a few weeks, it was understood. The Lambeaus joked when they met in Classon's office, it was reported. "What are you going to pay me?" she was said to have asked jestingly. "Nothing," Lambeau replied, smiling. "You should pay me something to get rid of me." Later, Lambeau said that he and his wife had simply agreed to disagree, and that they remained on the friendliest of terms. "We hold no animosity toward each other," he said. "Certain reporters who claim to have pictures of me with a movie actress on the coast are not telling the truth. Only one picture was taken of me and that was with Myrna Kennedy, who is a married woman, sitting between Red Grange and me." Lambeau referred to a picture snapped with Miss Kennedy on the Packers' bench, at one of the exhibition football games played on the Pacific coach last winter. Both attorneys said that any charges in the case would not be sensational, that no third party was involved and that it was merely a situation in which "two friends" agreed to part amicably. Mrs. Lambeau has filed no complaint against her husband. This will not be done, it was understood, until just before the case is presented for recording in court. The proceedings thus far have been exceedingly secret and even Mrs. Lambeau's petition for temporary alimony was kept under cover. The clerk of Circuit Judge Henry Graass' court, where the petition was heard, had repeatedly denied knowledge of any court action by Mrs. Lambeau. However, in a document stamped May 1 at the Brown County courthouse, the court order: That Lambeau pay to Atty. Allan Classon $100 on or before May 15 to enable the plaintiff to carry on her suit for temporary alimony. That Lambeau pay to the clerk of circuit court of Brown County for the use of the plaintiff, Marguerite Lambeau, sums ranging from $25 to $50 up to May 15 and thereafter $100 a month for her support and maintenance. That Mrs. Lambeau be allowed the custody and charge of the minor child of the parties, Donald Lambeau, until the further order of the court. That the plaintiff be given temporary possession of the home in the town of Allouez and that the defendant shall pay for the upkeep, such as light, fuel, water, insurance and taxes. That until further order of the court Lambeau desist from imposing any personal restraint on the personal liberties of Mrs. Lambeau or interfering with Donald Lambeau, and that he desist from going upon the premises of the Lambeau home or in anyway interfering in Mrs. Lambeau's occupancy of it. That Lambeau absolutely refrain from disposing of, concealing or encumbering any of his property, excepting such sums as may be necessary for complying with the the present court order. Lambeau, it is understood, has complied fully with all the requirements of the order and has made the payments specified on schedule. He is represented by Gerald Clifford, Green Bay attorney.
MAY 24 (Green Bay) - Mrs. E.L. Lambeau, 34, today had secured a divorce from her husband, Curly, coach of the Green Bay Packers, professional football team, on grounds of cruel and inhuman treatment. The decree was granted by Circuit Judge Henry Grasse Tuesday, Custody of their 14-year old son went to Mrs. Lambeau. Entire support of the boy until he graduates will be provided by Lambeau. Their Brown County home and $5,000 was awarded to Mrs. Lambeau as final settlement. The couple was married August 16, 1919.
MAY 26 (Milwaukee) - Rollie Halfman, Marquette University football captain last season and now a semi-pro baseball player with Wisconsin Rapids in the State league, has signed to play football with the Green Bay Packers of the National Professional league next season.
JUNE 29 (New York) - The National Professional football league will begin a two-day meeting here Saturday with ratification of Detroit's entry into the circuit, approval of the 1934 schedule and decision on possible changes in the rules as the principal items of business. The league, with Detroit replacing Portsmouth, will be a 10-club loop, the other teams being the Chicago Bears and Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, Cincinnati, Boston, Brooklyn, New York, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
JULY 1 (New York) - The National Professional Football league executives, meeting here Saturday, recommended several changes in the rules and approved all changes adopted by the college some weeks ago. A prolonged session over the game schedule for this fall was in prospect. The Green Bay Packers were represented by Coach Curly Lambeau. The recommendations were: That the prohibition forbidding a player newly injected into the game from communicating with his teammates until after one play has been run be abolished; that official notify the coaches when each team has exhausted its legal three-minute time outs in each half; that a hand-to-hand forward pass incomplete behind the line of scrimmage be made a fumble with either team permitted to recover; that within 10 yards of the goal line a defensive team may be penalized only half the distance to the goal line instead of five yards as heretofore. Still under debate is a plan to receive free running with fumbles. The committee decided that the rule should be altered but was unable to agree whether a player might run with any fumbled ball or only with fumbles from lateral passing. All the recommendations will be referred to league teams for approval but are virtually sure of acceptance. Transfer of the Portsmouth (Ohio) franchise to Detroit, Mich., was approved and it was announced that Daniel R. Topping, amateur sportmans here, had bought Chris Cagle's share in the Brooklyn Dodgers. Joseph Carr, Columbus, Ohio, was re-elected president of the league and Carl Storck of Detroit was elected treasurer. The new executive committee includes George Halas, Chicago; Dr. Henry March, New York, and Bert Bell, Philadelphia.
JULY 9 (Wisconsin State Journal) - Chicago Cardinals will have the most improved team, the Boston Braves will be the team to beat for the eastern division championship and Detroit the club to beat for the western division title in the National Professional Football league, in the opinion of Coach E.L. Lambeau, of the Green Bay Packers. The Packer coach, who returned to Green Bay yesterday from the annual National league meeting in New York, looks for the closest race in the history of professional sports. He reports that every club has added star college players and strengthened its teams. New rules adopted by the pros should do a lot to speed up play, Lambeau believes. He was a member of the league rules committee that proposed several changes in the code which the clubs adopted. Changes include eliminating the five-yard penalty on the defensive team within the 10 yard line and substituting a penalty of half the distance to the goal line; allowing as many incomplete passes be thrown without a five-yard penalty; permitting one pass into the end zone without loss of the ball on a touchback and providing for a smaller ball, similar to that adopted by the colleges. Considerable discussion was heard about the fumble rule, but no change made in it, the coach reported. Some teams advocated permitting a defensive team to advance with all fumbles or punts. The only change voted in this connection was one to provide for a hand-to-hand forward pass behind the line of scrimmage that is fumbled be given to the recovering team. There is a possibility that the Packers will play one league game in Milwaukee, the coach said, but it is not likely that one of the regular scheduled games in Green Bay will be shifted. The present plan is to meet the Chicago Bears, in a midweek game in Milwaukee, playing under lights at night in an extra league tilt. The financial report of the league treasurer indicates that clubs are in better shape than ever before, the coach reported. An attempt will be made to get better officials for midwest games, by having a committee appointed by President Joseph Carr call on Major Griffith, Big Ten commissioner, and get his consent to use Western Conference officials in professional games. At present the Big Ten has a rule forbidding officials of Big Ten games from working in professional games. If the conference will not rescind the rule, the professionals will offer the Big Ten officials more money that they are getting in the hopes of enticing them into the professional field. Boston's club has the easiest schedule of the eastern group of five teams, the coach believes. The Braves will not meet the Chicago Bears, Detroit, or Packers in games on western field. Detroit also has an easier schedule than the Bears and Packers as the club does not play Boston at all. It is conceded that the Packers, Bears and Giants have drawn the toughest schedules, he said.
JULY 27 (Green Bay) - Nate Barrager, former Southern California center, will rejoin the Green Bay Packers professional football team, Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau said today. Barrager formerly played with the Packers but retired last year to devote his time to business. Another Packers who will be back is Les Peterson, Texas end, who played with Brooklyn last season.
AUGUST 31 (Green Bay) - Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau will trot out his 1934 Green Bay Packer grid squad tomorrow morning at Joannes Park to begin officially the Bays' effort to regain the glory that was their when they held three consecutive National league championships. Most of the 1933 squad - with a few notable exceptions - augmented by an imposing array of new faces recruited from the cream of last year's collegiate crop, will be on hand for the initial drill. Coach Lambeau will not lose any time in getting his charges down to work, for only two weeks remain before the Packers get their first taste of competition against the Fort Atkinson Blackhawks here September 16, and then open their league campaign against Philadelphia here a week later. The familiar and comforting figures of Cal Hubbard, tackle, and of Rudy Comstock, guard, will not be in evidence Saturday, for they have accepted coaching positions. Another missing veteran will be Johnny Blood, one of the most colorful players in Packer history, who has been sold to Pittsburgh. However, such well established veterans as Roger Grove, quarterback; Mike Michalske, guard; Lavvie Dilweg, end; Clark Hinkle, fullback; Arnie Herber, Hank Bruder, Bob Monnett, halfbacks; Buckets Goldenberg, fullback; Milt Gantenbein, Les Peterson, ends; Claude Perry, Joe Kurth, tackles; Lon Evans, guard, and Nate Barrager and Art Bultman, centers, will be on hand. Heading the list of aspirants from among the 1933 collegiate crop will be Joe Laws, brilliant quarterback of Iowa and leading player in the all-star poll conducted for the Chicago tilt. Laws is hailed here as another Packer "great". Among the other men signed are the much-disgraced Champ Seibold of Wisconsin, Robert Jones, Indiana guard; Adolph Schwammel, giant Oregon tackle; Rollie Halfman, Marquette halfback; Al Norgaard, elongated Stanford end; Carl Jorgenson, St. Mary's great tackle; Joe Plihal, South Dakota State tackle; Frank Butler, guard of Michigan State, and Phil Poth, another guard from Gonzaga. Swede Johnson, who starred for several seasons with the St. Louis Gunners and who hails from Appleton; Earl Witte, Gustavus Adolphus halfback, and Walter Holmes, Ripon College captain last fall and a halfback, will also get tryouts.
AUGUST 5 (Milwaukee Journal) - Johnny Blood, the most colorful personality in the National Professional Football league and still, whatever else they may say of his playing, far and away the niftiest pass receiver in the league, has played his last game with the Green Bay Packers. He was bought by the Pittsburgh Pirates, they announced Saturday, in a straight cash deal. A flare for the spectacular, both on and off the field, has for years made Johnny the best copy in the league. If he didn't break into the headlines by snaring almost impossible passes, he broke in by any one of a score of harmless yet spectacular escapades. You could write a volume about him and some day someone should. While the Packers haven't made any announcement of the deal, as yet, they sold him no doubt to help make room for the new men with whom they hope to build up the club. Johnny Laws of Iowa, voted the most valuable player to his team in the Big Ten last season, will probably fill Blood's shoes. Laws is one of the best ball carriers in the country, a fine blocker, a southpaw passer and a punter. Several other familiar faces of the championship years will be missing when the boys assemble in Green Bay September 1. The Sea Lion, Cal Hubbard, whose defensive work at tackle was a bright spot in Green Bay's play for years, will coach the line at Texas A&M and Rudy Comstock, the reliable old guard, will fill the same job at the University of Oklahoma. Van Sickle, a guard, and Sarafiny, a center, were unconditionally released. Several other deals are pending...The Packers will be well represented in the all-star game at Soldiers' Field August 31, with three and possibly four men in the college lineup. Bob Jones of Indiana, a guard; Laws of Iowa, and Ad Schwammel of Oregon State, a tackle, will certainly see much action. Frank Butler of Michigan State, a 220-pound, 6-foot 2-inch center, who has been signed by the Packers, has also been invited to play but may not be able to make it. Incidentally, Butler will have a fight on his hands to win the job at center at the Bay for Nate Barrager of Los Angeles, who remained on the coast last season, has decided to play again this fall. With Art Bultman, last year's regular center, Lambeau, it seems, ought to be well fortified in the middle of the line...Green Bay's schedule is about as tough a program Curly Lambeau could arrange. It is still subject to revision, because of several tentative games, but roughly, it will be something like this:
September 9 - Non-league practice game
September 16 - Philadelphia at Green Bay
September 23 - Chicago Bears at Green Bay
September 30 - New York Giants at Green Bay
October 7 - Detroit at Green Bay
October 14 - Cincinnati at Green Bay
October 21 - Chicago Cardinals at Green Bay
October 28 - Green Bay at Chicago Bears
November 4 - Green Bay at Boston
November 11 - Green Bay at New York
November 18 - Green Bay at Chicago Cardinals
November 25 - Green Bay at Detroit
November 29 (Thanksgiving Day) - Green Bay at Chicago Cardinals (tentative)
December 2 - Green Bay at Cincinnati
December 9 - Green Bay at Chicago Bears
December 16 - Green Bay at St. Louis (tentative)
AUGUST 16 (Green Bay) - Joseph Plihal, crashing tackle from South Dakota State, has signed a contract with the Green Bay Packers professional football team, Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau announced today...The Green Bay Packers will open their football season on September 9th. It will be a non-league game. They are going to play the Fort Atkinson Black Hawks at Green Bay...The Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers might play in Milwaukee on October 17th on a Wednesday night under flood lights. The Packers report for practice on September 1st. The first league game will be played in Green Bay on September 16th when they play the Philadelphia club in Green Bay.
AUGUST 29 (Ripon) - Walter (Cyclone) Holmes, Stoughton, 1933 Ripon College football captain and an outsttanding basketball and football star there for three years, will be given a tryout at halfback with the Green Bay Packers this fall, it was announced here recently.
AUGUST 30 (Green Bay) - Clark Hinkle, veteran fullback who formerly starred for Bucknell, will be back with the Green Bay Packers professional football team this fall, officials said today. The squad now includes 27 players. Practice will start September 1.
SEPTEMBER 5 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers will blast the lid off the professional football season Sunday in a game with the Fort Atkinson Blackhawks. The game will be played at Packer field. Coach Curly Lambeau plans to use every one of his 33 men in the tilt.
SEPTEMBER 9 (Green Bay) -With a week's practice back of them, in which Curly Lambeau drove them through heavy sessions every day, Green Bay's Packers will open their 1934 girdiron campaign in a practice game with the Fort Atkinson Blackhawks here Sunday afternoon. The teams will take the field at 2 o'clock. The game will probably develop into a procession of Packers from bench to field most of the afternoon, for it will give Lambeau his only chance to see all his charges in action before the league opener with Philadelphia here a week later and the first of three engagements with the Bears here September 23. The Hawks, who claimed the state independent championship last year, will have a team on the field that ought to offer just the right kind of opposition for the Packers at this time. It is composed largely of former University of Wisconsin and state college men. The lineup includes George Casey, Moon Molinaro, Mickey Bach, Buster Bucci, Dave Tobias, Hal smith, Walter Gnabab, Larry Neupert and Mark Catlin, all of Wisconsin; Les Smith, Weggy Ruesch and Clyde Gallup of Carroll, Edgar Schwager of Whitewater Teachers and the Army, George Popp of Miami, Lindy Fiedler of Platteville Teachers, Van Sistine of Washington State Universoty, Tully Gurness of Milliken and Red Krening of Fort Atkinson. Against them Lambeau will throw his full strength. At some time or another, everybody in a suit will see action. The veterans include Dilweg, Rose, Gantenbein, and Peterson, ends; Kurth and Perry, tackles; Evans and Michalske, guards; Barrager and Bultman, centers; Grove and Monnett, quarterbacks; Herber, Bruder and Englemann, halfbacks; and Hinkle and Goldenberg, fullbacks. The new material, perhaps, the most impressive looking Lambeau has every assembled, includes Norgaard and Plihal, ends; Champ Seibold, Schwammel, and Jorgenson, tackles; Poth, Jones and Wunsch, guards; Butler, center; Laws, Holmes and Halfman, halfbacks; Swede Johnson, fullback, and Casper, quarterback. Lambeau will not cut his squad to the league limit of 22 until after the third game.
SEPTEMBER 9 (Milwaukee Sentinel) - Pro football fans in general, and Green Bay Packer fans in particular will have their first chance of the season to get a somewhat accurate line on the strength or lack of strength, on the 
part of the Packers when Curly Lambeau's horde meets its first test of the season today at Green Bay against the Fort Atkinson Blackhawks. The Packers, if they belong in the pro league at all, should win rather convincingly. If they are given the toughest kind of a battle, we'll know that Coach Lambeau will have his work cut out for him if his club is to finish in the league. The guess of this writer is that the Packers will surprise - possibly everyone. There is a combination of old, experienced blood and youth, power and stamina that should make one of the greatest teams in Packer history - including the three teams that won three successive titles in the pro league. The vets, sprinkled among the youngsters, will actually be playing coaches. The youngsters, full of fire, zep and the ol' determination to make good in the toughest of all grid circuits, will have youth, stamina and ambition on their side. The combination, in view of the showing of several of the youngsters in the All-Star-Chicago Bears game, should be doubly effective. On the Packer battlefront we'll see some of the real vets of the game, such as Mike Michalske, and Lavvie Dilweg, while we're getting a line on the ability of such well known characters of college football as Joe Laws, Bob Jones, Adolph Schwammel, and others of their ilk. Packer fans know the Bays must develop plenty of power from this year's rookie crop to get anywhere in the league race. Cal Hubbard is gone. Rudy Comstock is gone. And when a tackle and guard of their caliber leaves the battlefront a gigantic problem remains. The kids in the line must come through. Today's game, played against a team of average college or university caliber, will serve to give us a line on what the kids will do in the big show. The Black Hawks are strong in their own class, stars from the University of Wisconsin and other Wisconsin colleges, making up their roster. They've more than upheld their own in state pro circles, and a Black Hawk team that was decidedly inferior to the one Fort Atkinson boasts this year gave the Bays a tough assignment at Janesville three years ago. That the Hawks have plenty of power can be judged when the caliber of the following players who are on the roster is considered: Jim Van Sistine, 194 pound end who was a star of recent Washington State university elevens; Dave Tobias, former 195 pound Wisconsin tackle; George Hulka, excellent Ripon college tackle weighing 204 pounds; Bus Bucci, 192 pound Wisconsin guard, and Glen Raithel, 185 pound Whitewater college tackle, all newcomers. Members of the 1932 and 1933 Hawks teams who will see action against the Packers include: George Casey, 186 pound end; Moon Molinaro, 210 pound tackle; Hal Smith, 193 pound tackle; Mark Catlin, 196 pound end; Mickey Bach, 190 pound halfback, and Larry Neupert, 215 pound fullback, all former Wisconsin players; Les Smith, 190 pound end; Woggy Ruesch, 232 pound tackle, and Clyde Gallup, 195 pound guard, of Carroll college; Tully Gunness, 190 pound halfback, of Milliken university; Edgar Schwagger, cracj 196 pound ball lugger, punter and passer of Army; George Popp, 193 pound guard, of Miami university; Lande Fiedler, tough 210 pound guard of Platteville college, and Wally Dahms, 208 pound center; Red Krening, 185 pound halfback; Adam Janiseck, 193 pound end and Gabby Zitath, 170 pound center, all of Whitewater college.
DECEMBER 4 (St. Louis) - Arnold Herber, star passing back of the Green Bay Packers, has been borrowed by the St. Louis Gunners for the remainder of the season. The Packers completed their season Sunday with a 21 to 14 victory over the Gunners, who have several exhibition games yet to play, including a charity encounter with the Brooklyn Dodgers here Sunday.
DECEMBER 9 (St. Louis) - Brooklyn's football Dodgers defeated the St. Louis Gunners, 17 to 14 today, a fourth quarter field goal by Ralph Kercheval providing the margin of victory. The exhibition game between the two National Football league team, played for the benefit of the Missouri and St. Louis societies for crippled children, attracted a slim crowd due to cold weather.
DECEMBER 10 (New York) - The National Professional Football league magnates, in annual winter meeting this afternoon, made sweeping changes in the code of rules governing the sport. Professional football, according to today's decrees, will depart further from the code of intercollegiate competition than ever before. The changes were adopted by unanimous vote of the representatives of the ten clubs in the league and were the rulers' contribution in return for the support of the public, which in 1934 surpassed any previous year in the history of professional football. The changes voted today are:
1. All penalties will be inflicted from the point of the previous down, or in other words, where the ball was put into play. This in direct contrast to the present rules which inflict penalties for holding, etc., from the point of foul.
2. The defending team may recover and run with any fumbled ball from a scrimmage play. The defense may recover, but not run, after a fumbled punt, placekick, kickoff or lateral pass.
3. A fourth down forward pass which is incomplete in the end zone, or a second forward pass incomplete in the same territory in a series of downs, will not count as a touchback unless the ball was put into play within 20 yards of the goal line. Otherwise the ball will be brought back to the point at which it was put into play and given to the defense.
4. Any lateral pass attempt, which inadvertently becomes a forward pass through misdirection, will belong to the passing team at the point of the forward pass. This means that a forward pass beyond the line of scrimmage will not be brought back to the point where the ball was put into play and counted as a down. It also means no 15 yard penalty will be inflicted on a team making an unintentional forward pass after having gained possession of the ball by the reception of a kick or the interception of a pass. A penalty is exacted for this offense under tercollegiate rules.
5. The ball will be brought into the field 15 yards after all plays within 15 yards of the sidelines. This abrogates the present 10 yard sideline rule of the colleges and conforms to the rules of the National High School Athletic 
DECEMBER 16 (Chicago) - At least five of the ten professional football teams made money this season. This is a better record than professional baseball can boast. The New York Giants, with 46,000 paid for the game which the Bears won, 10 to 9, a month ago, topped the league's attendance records. The Detroit Lions, by virtue of 26,000 in Detroit against the Bears on Thanksgiving Day, and 34,000 three days later in Chicago, pulled out of red ink. The Boston Redskins, owned by a smart businessman and newspaper publisher of Washington D.C., George Marshall, also finished with a profit, it is said. The Green Bay Packers, who hold the league record of three consecutive championships in 1929, 1930 and 1931, also showed a slight margin on the right side of the ledger. The Bears are the big money earners of the league race. This may be questioned, but with the Bears' stock given a value of $76,000 (a figure set automatically by the sale of Ed Sternaman's half share for $38,000 in 1932) the 1934 dividend will probably be near 100 percent. That's big business, and explains why George Halas, controlling stockholder and coach of the ex-champions, figures his franchise in professional football is worth a half million. The other clubs were not as fortunate. Philadelphia may have come mighty close to breaking even. Pittsburgh is making progress. Brooklyn was a small lose, but hopes to capitalize on Manhattan's interest if it can produce a winner. The Chicago Cardinals lost money. Which leaves the St. Louis Gunners as the last of the list. The Gunners took over a National League franchise after the Cincinnati organization failed. St. Louis, with more than 13,000 paid for its opening league game, did not lose. Cincinnati was the loser, but St. Louis, a better sports center, may have luck next year. In any event, a sport which has done as well as professional football did this fall commands attention.
DECEMBER 18 (St. Louis) - The National Professional Football league franchise of the St. Louis Gunners was in jeopardy yesterday as the result of a poor season financially climaxed Sunday with the attachment of an exhibition game's receipts. Ed Butler, president of the Gunners, today said a meeting of interested persons would be held Thursday to determine the future of the franchise. He did not disclose any names, but said several "people from the East" are interest in the possibility of moving the franchise. The president said his club, which acquired the National league franchise from Cincinnati six weeks ago, had lost money this year, in addition to that spent for the franchise. Some of the players remain unpaid, he said, but indicated a reorganization plan, which would straighten out the salary problem, was being considered. The Gunners' financial woes hit a new high Sunday, when their 7 to 0 victory over the Kansas City Blues, American Professional Football league champions, was anticlimaxed by the attachments. The St. Louis Soccer league filed an attachment for $1,350, representing two week' rent on Sportsman's Park, plus court costs; and the federal government filed a $1,700 tax claim for this season and 1933. Thus, of the money taken in at the gate, the Gunners will have nothing left after the Blues receive their full share of $1,620, of which they have been paid $1,200.
DECEMBER 21 (Columbus, OH) - Players on the St. Louis Gunners, National Professional Football league team, will be paid their back salaries even if the league has to dig into its own treasury for the funds, Joe F. Carr, president of the loop, said Thursday. The St. Louis club, transferred from Cincinnati in midseason, finished the year in a financial muddle, with the result that the players have not been paid for a couple of weeks.
The National Professional league owners turned down the proposal to put the ball on the 30 yard line after touchbacks. Most important as far as the owners were concerned was the new "waiver rule". After the sixth league game, the magnates rules, no players may be released until his name has been submitted to all other owners. If any team desires the services of this player, the order of choice will start with the team having the lowest standing after the six game period. This is in accord with the desire to prevent switching of players in midseason between teams so that those having opportunities to win sectional titles may be strengthened. It is likely, so it was reported today, that the player limit will be changed at the next meeting. Under the present rules 25 players may be kept until the third league game, after which the limit is 22. Those attending today's session at the Victories were George Halas, Chicago Bears; Tim Mara and John Mara, New York Giants; George Marshall and Larry Doyle, Boston Redskins; Bert Bell and Coach Lud Wray, Philadelphia Eagles; Arthur Rooney and Dick Guy, Pittsburgh Pirates; Dan Topping, Brooklyn Dodgers; William Alfs, Detroit Lions. The Chicago Cardinals, Green Bay Packers and St. Louis Gunners were not represented. The owners were enthusiastic over the championship game yesterday. With five of the ten teams showing a profit for the year, and the Philadelphia Eagles so close to black figures that they hope to pull out with an exhibition game Saturday against the Chicago Bears, there was reason for gratification. "Philadelphia hasn't made a profit so far," Bert Bell said this afternoon, "but we reduced our losses 65 percent this year. I believe that within five years professional football will be on its feet as far as all the teams are concerned." The owners did not discuss the proposal of George Marshall of Boston that the league be reduced to eight teams, with home and home games compulsory. There were many yesterday to congratulate Coach Steve Owen of the Giants on the rubber soled shoes with which he equipped his team in the championship game in the second half. Without dispute, the press considered that this had much to do with the four touchdown spurt which gave the Giants a 30 to 13 victory. Only two members of the team declined to wear the gymnasium shoes, it was revealed. These men were Gibson, guard, and Hein, center. Danowski started without the rubber soles shoes, but changed his mind after he slipped and fell early in the third quarter. The Bears were philosophic about their defeat, although regretting the collapse of their 33 game record and in particular bemoaning the loss of the extra $200 for the winning players. Only 14 Giant players competed in the championship and the Bears' total of substitutions was also abbreviated. The Chicago men, however, are looking forward to next year, when they will seek revenge for yesterday's licking.
