GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(MILWAUKEE) - Showing little of the fight that formerly was characteristic of a Green Bay football team, the Packers went down to defeat at the hands of the Chicago Cardinals by a score of 9 to 0 at State Fair park her Sunday afternoon before a crowd of 3,000 spectators who braved inclement weather to witness the National league encounter on a rain-soaked gridiron. Cardinals slipped, skidded and sloshed through the mud to a deserved victory. They outfought the Packers
nearly all the way. With the exception of three of the
Packer veterans and one second year man, Green Bay
played spotty football. Mike Michalske, Claude Perry,
Hank Bruder and Buckets Goldenberg seemed to be 
the only men who were bearing down all the time. Hank
again proved to be a splendid "mud horse" and his
punting of the slippery ball got the Packers out of many
a tight hole. He also gained his share of yards and with
Goldenberg performed brilliantly on defense. As usual
Michalske was a defensive star from a Green Bay point
of view and the bare-headed Perry was also very much
in evidence. Others occasionally scintillated but just as
often their play bogged down.
GAME IS SLOW
The game was a slow, listless affair with neither side
able to gain consistently on the slow, mucky field. The
Packers had several openings in the first quarter when
play was continually in Cardinal territory, but they 
lacked the punch to deliver. The Cardinals capitalized
on their one big break, sending Homer Griffith, former
Southern California star, through a broken field behind
perfect blocking, 58 yards for a touchdown. They added
a field goal later, but the six points were plenty to beat
this Packer team. Twenty-four hours of rain, which
abated only an hour before the game, brought about
huge puddles of water. In this muck the teams sloshed
about, and after a few moments of play, it was hard to
tell enemy from foe. In the early stages Bruder's
exceptional punting kept the play almost entirely in
Cardinal territory. In the second half, however, the Cards
proved to be masters of the field - and the Packers. A
16-yard run by Grove in the first quarter was followed by
an attempted placement by Schwammel from the 33
yard line, but it was partially blocked and fell far short.
A short time later Bruder passed to Rose for a 20-yard
gain to the 31-yard line, but the Packers lost the ball on
the 24. After that the Packers were never beyond the
Cardinal 40-yard line, and play was mostly between the
20-yard stripes, with both in possession in their own
territory.
PASSES ARE USELESS
Their passing attack made practically useless due to 
the condition of the ball and the field, the Packers had
little to offer in the way of offense. Attempts to gain 
through running plays were checked most of the time
before they could get started. Under conditions such as
these add play that was often lackadaisical and you
have the answer to the Packer defeat. The Cardinal line
was alert and tough. Seldom were the Packers able to
gain through it. Outstanding were McNally, veteran
center, and Volok, Tulsa guard. Mike Mikulak was the
best ground gainer and did a fine job backing up the line
while Griffith's play was exceptional both on offense and
defense. Through the first quarter the play was in the
Cardinal territory. A 16-yard run by Grove started the
first scoring threat of the Packers. It put the ball on the
30-yard line. Three plays failed of a first down so Ade
Schwammel dropped back on the fourth, and with Grove
holding the ball, tried a placement from the 33. It was
short and the Cards took the ball, punting out.
ROSE CATCHES PASS
Just before the end of the first quarter Bruder passed to
Rose for 20 yards and a first down on the 31. The Bays
went to the 24 before they lost the ball on downs and
again the Cardinals punted out. There was little of
interest after that until well into the third quarter when 
the Cardinals scored. Clarke Hinkle, back to punt from
his own 38, was rushed when McNally jumped the play.
The Card center was clearly offside, but Headlinesman
Brown did not call it. Hinkle punted quickly, the ball
sailing to the left and into the arms of Griffith on his own
42-yard line. The Cardinals halfback cut outside of 
Dilweg, raced to his left, outdistancing two other Bays
who slipped in the mud, reversed his field and with a 
brilliant bit of open field running on the slimy gridiron,
sped 58 yards for a touchdown. Excellent blocking was
seen all over the field to take out Packers who had a
chance to get him.
BARRAGAR BLOCKS KICK
Horstman tried for the extra point by a placekick, but
Barragar charged through, blocking it, getting the ball
squarely in the face. Late in the fourth period the Bay
backs missed a signal and the ball was fumbled, 
Isaacson, recovering for the Cardinals on the 20-yard
line. Three plays added four yards and on the fourth,
Smith dropped back to the 21-yard line and with Sarboe
holding the ball, booted it between the uprights for a 
field goal. In the last few seconds of play Sarboe
intercepted a pass by Herber and returned it to the 
Packer six-yard line, but the gun ended hostilities before the Cards could start a play.
CHICAGO CARDS -   0  0  6  3  -  9
GREEN BAY     -   0  0  0  0  -  0
3rd - CHI - Homer Griffith, 58-yard punt return (Horstman kick failed) CHICAGO CARDINALS 6-0
4th - CHI - Bill Smith, 23-yard field goal CHICAGO CARDINALS 9-0
NEWS AND NOTES
SIDELIGHTS
NOV 19 (Green Bay) - Homer Griffith, Cardinal backfielder, was a much improved ball player Sunday. When he played here several weeks ago, his efforts went for naught, but yesterday it was a different story. He not only made plenty of yardage on a slippery gridiron, but played a fine defensive game. If he keeps improving he'll be a real pro player in another year...The playing field was a veritable sea of mud and water. There wasn't one spot where a safe footing could be had and as a consequence the offense of both teams was slowed up. It was almost impossible to sidestep and hold one's footing. Griffith, however, did it in the third quarter when he ran Hinkle's punt back for a touchdown. It looked like the Cardinal player was going to be tackled several times, but when a Packer player lunged at him they'd slip and go slithering in the mud...Hank Bruder's punting in the first half was remarkable considering the condition of the ball and playing field. He placed his boots well and got plenty of distance and had the Cardinals backed up to their goalposts during most of the first quarter. On one occasion he punted out of bounds on the four-yard line...The Cardinals had plenty of fight and that's what won the game. They never gave up and fought for every inch of ground. On the other hand, the Packers, that is most of them, seemed content to just go through the motions and let matters take care of themselves. If they managed to win that was all right, if they didn't, that was all right, too. That seemed to be their philosophy...After the players had been on the field five minutes it was almost impossible to tell one man from another. They all looked alike, caked from head to foot with mud. Even their faces were mud-smeared. It was anything but an ideal day for football..The cushion seller did a land office business. The seats in the stadium, being of concrete, held the rainwater and anyone who sat down without a thick cushion under him, got a soaking and it wasn't a light one either...Owner Bidwell of the Cardinals was a happy man after the game. He stood at the door of the bus and ushered each player into it was they came along, having a word of praise for all. Coach Paul Schissler's face was wreathed in smiles also as the victory meant much to him...Bob Jones blocked one of Sarboe's punts early in the game and the ball bounced around the 14-yard line before Griffith finally fell on it. Referee Carr at first ruled that it was the Packers' ball, when the head linesman said the ball had crossed the line of scrimmage. He reversed this ruling, however, when the head linesman explained that the ball did not go over the line of scrimmage on the kick but after it was batted around.
GET TO SEE CONTEST
NOV 19 (Milwaukee) - Taken into custody by Lieut. Gov. Thomas O'Malley, who is a conductor on the Northwestern road when not performing his state duties, two Chicago football fans were bailed out of jail yesterday in time to attend the Chicago Cardinals-Green Bay Packers game. The men gave their names as Joseph Fempsey, 34, and John Hanson, 25. They were charged with being drunk and disorderly after O'Malley reported they had been causing a disturbance on his train.
PACKERS POINT FOR GRID TILT WITH DETROIT
NOV 20 (Green Bay) - Aiming at a possible upset over the undefeated Detroit Lions at the Motor City next Sunday, the Packers, beaten up by the Cardinals' last Sunday, dug in today with a fresh round of practice sessions. Coach E.L. Lambeau was not satisfied with his team's showing against the rejuvenated Cardinals, and prepared to chase the men through some vigorous drills before their appearance against the all-conquering Lions...HAVE BEARS' PRAYERS: For once, the prayers of the Chicago Bears will accompany the Packers to Detroit, for the Bruins were badly scared by New York Sunday, and would like nothing better than to see the Bays tip over the Lions on the latter team's home lot. The Packers, on the strength of recent appearances, hardly rank with the Lions, although in the only previous meeting of the teams this season, the Detroiters were lucky to eke out a 3 to 0 hairline decision. This was the contest in which Bobby Monnett narrowly missed a 20-yard field goal, and Glenn Presnell of Detroit slammed one over the bards from the 54-yard line, a feat which even those who witnessed it can hardly believe even yet...NATIONAL LEAGUE RECORD: Although the Bays were outplayed by Detroit, they point out that Monnett's kick ordinarily would have been good, while Detroit probably could never again get a break like that 54-yard boot, which, as a matter of fact, set a new National league record. Since that game, however, Detroit has thrown its classy machine into high gear, and will take the field against the Packers determined to score by the touchdown route, without depending upon the trick toes of either Presnell or the redoubtable Dutch Clark, scoring leader of the National grid circuit. While Detroit may not possess the sheer power which has carried the Chicago Bears to 10 consecutive victories, there is little doubt but that the Lions backs are more versatile than the Bruins' and this factor will make the Detroit attack constantly dangerous Sunday...PRESNELL AND CLARK: The Lions don't possess a running back as good as Beattie Feathers, or a kicker as accurate as Jack Manders, but in Presnell and Clark they have two backs who can do just about anything with a football, and are very likely to prove it against the Packers. Scoring versatility of these gridiron twins is seen in their season's records. Clark has piled up 72 points by combining eight touchdowns, 12 extra kicks and four field goals, while Presnell has been almost as versatile, getting six touchdowns, eight extra points and three field goals for 53 points. The Packers recall that close decision at Green Bay, and figure that, given reasonable breaks, they may upset the Detroit crew, and break Potsy Clark's heart in the process.
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORT
NOV 20 (Green Bay) - We were disappointed with the showing of the Packers at the Milwaukee Fairgrounds Sunday, not so much because they lost, but because of their play in losing. The condition of the field made the game one in which one play could decide the issue - and it did - so the defeat wasn't so important, but what was alarming was the apparent lack of fight and chatter. Scarcely a word was spoken as the team lined up, the old fire and enthusiasm for battle seemed to be missing. What we don't like is the attitude of the fans now when the Packers lose a game. In former years when the team was beaten, you heard nothing but conversation about it. The curbstone coaches had all kinds of theories and reasons for defeat. Arguments were hot and heavy, sometimes quite bitter. This at times was hard on the players, the coach and directors, but it indicated a healthy condition. It showed that fans were very much interested in the team. This attitude has given way to one of indifference, whether the team wins or loses. It is not good. Professional football can only survive here when fans are genuinely interested in every game the team plays.
​BEARS, LIONS TOP THE PROS
NOVEMBER 20 (New York) - The Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions continue to set the pace in offensive and defensive plays in the National Professional Football league. The Bears, with a total of 3,270 yards gained, appear well on their way to a new record. Detroit is proving itself the strongest on the defense. So far only 1,393 yards have been gained against the Lions. The Pittsburgh Pirates have passed the Green Bay Packers in passing with 60 completed in 176 tries. Green Bay completed 56 in 140 attempts.
MONNETT TOPS PACKER TEAM
NOV 20 (Detroit) - Two former Michigan State backfield stars, Bob Monnett and Roger Grove, will appear in the starting lineup of the Green Bay Packers next Sunday afternoon, when the strong Wisconsin NFL entrant clashes with the Detroit Lions in the University of Detroit stadium. Monnett is rated the smoothest running halfbacks on the Packer team by football critics who have watched the Bucyrus (O.) product in action. Monnett is the Packers' high scorer for the season, although his fleet end runs and his off tackle smashes have made him a "marked man" in every game the Packers have played. Against the Lions at Green Bay in October, Monnett made the longest gain through the powerful Detroit line, skirting off tackle in the first period for a 23-yard jaunt. Monnett played three years at Michigan State before entering post-graduate football. He was termed by Jimmy Crowley, former coach at East Lansing, the best back ever to wear the Green and White of State. Grove shares with Monnett the reputation of being the fastest man on the Packers' squad. He was a teammate of Monnett's for one season at State, calling signals. Grove is playing his fourth year in the NFL. In addition to his running ability, Grove is a consistently good punter and an excellent defensive back. Playing on a team that boasts such star ball toters as Clarke Hinkle, Arnold Herber, Hank Bruder, Joe Laws and Buckets Goldenberg, Grove is recognized with Monnett as the most important cogs in the Packers' backfield.
DETROIT LIONS POINTING FOR PACKER GAME
NOV 21 (Detroit) - Glimpsing the end of a rainbow which has been denied them for several seasons, the Lions of Coach Potsy Clark rammed their cleats into the practice turf today, determined that the coming invasion of the Green Bay Packers shall not keep them from their first NFL championship. Dutch Clark, veteran quarterback and leading scorer in the league, who has been out of action with a sprained ankle, was on the field yesterday, and appeared in pretty good condition; so much so that Coach Potsy Clark decided to start him against the Green Bay team...TOUGHEST GAME SO FAR: Detroit remembers that game at Green Bay, which the Lions captured 3 to 0, as the toughest on its schedule so far, as the team sees no reason for believing that next Sunday's contest will be less troublesome. Potsy Clark is not depending upon Glenn Presnell for another 54-yard placement, but will open his scoring repertoire wide in an attempt to snare a touchdown or two against the slipping Packers. With Clark back in action, the redoubtable Detroit backfield approaches full strength. Presnell is at the peak of his game, Father Lumpkin has been blocking his best, and Ace Gutowsky is ready to provide the needed punch from his fullback post. The Lions also rely greatly upon the kicking of Frank Christensen to keep the Packers back in harmless territory...IS GREAT PUNTER: Christensen is being hailed by Detroit fans as the greatest punter since the days of Verne Lewellen, and upon his long legs has fallen much of the responsibility for the Lions' defensive kicking. He is likely to be in Sunday's starting lineup. There are wrinkles in Potsy Clark's forehead these days, for when the Lions get past the Packers, if they do without spilling any blood, they face two crucial games in four days with the national champions, the Bears of Chicago. Clark, however, has no intention of dropping a game to the Packers while preparing for the Bears, and he is pointing his team for next Sunday's game at the University of Detroit field as though the Lion-Packer mix was the last contest of the season, upon which all depends. An upset victory for the Bays, Clark realizes, will deal the Detroiters a stunning psychological blow on the eve of their all-important battles with the Bears.
LIONS WARNED OF PACKER LINE
NOV 21 (Detroit) - The powerful line of the Green Bay Packers, who meet the Detroit Lions Sunday afternoon in the University of Detroit Stadium, enjoys at least one noteworthy distinction. It is the only line in the NFL which so far this season has prevented the Lions from crashing through to a touchdown. The scoring aces of the Lions - Dutch Clark, Glenn Presnell, Ernie Caddel, Frank Christensen, Ace Gutowski and Father Lumpkin - have tallied touchdowns against the New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Cardinals, Boston Redskins, Brooklyn Dodgers, Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Gunners. Against the Packers' line the best the powerful Lions' offense could do was advance the ball into position for a fifty-four yard placement kick by Glenn Presnell. Presnell's feat, a record breaking placement kick for the league, took place in October at Green Bay when the Lions eked out a 3-0 win over the Packers...LIONS ARE WARNED: Coach Potsy Clark pointed out the defensive strength of the Packers to his squad when they assembled for practice Tuesday morning at Chandler Stadium. "Green Bay's line is the best balanced, most aggressive line in the league," Potsy warned his team. "Injuries have handicapped the Packers all season long. Tar Schwammel and Bob Jones, two of the best linemen in this business, have been able to play but a few minutes in each game. Their limited appearances have handicapped the Packers. They're back for our game, however. That means we're in for a lean afternoon so far as touchdowns are concerned." Clark is anxious to beat the Packers Sunday. From the day he took his Portsmouth Spartans to Green Bay two years ago and lost a hard fought football game on a passing technicality, the Lions' mentor would rather defeat the Packers than any club in the league. It was in the Packers-Spartans game in 1932 that Clark delivered his famous ultimatum to Curly Lambeau, Green Bay coach...MAKES GOOD HIS THREAT: Walking across the field from the Spartans bench after the game, Potsy shook hands with Lambeau and congratulated him on his victory. He added he thought the decision on the pass play, responsible for the Packers' winning score, was a bit unjust. "Curly," Potsy said, "when you come down to Portsmouth I'm going to give your team the best lacing it has received in years. What's more I'm going to it by playing 11 men 60 minutes each. There will be no substitutions." Three weeks later Clark made good his threat. The Spartans beat the Packers, 19-0. Every man starting for the Spartans played 60 minutes. The incident is still remembered in Green Bay, with the result the Lion-Packer game there this season drew more than 10,000 paid customers.
PACKERS WILL START FINAL TRIP FRIDAY
NOV 22 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers took their last drill at Joannes Park here this afternoon, preparatory to leaving for Detroit, and next Sunday's contest with the Lions of Potsy Clark. The team will not return until the end of the season. Coach E.L. Lambeau and his men will board a Milwaukee road train at 12:40 o'clock tomorrow afternoon for Chicago, and will arrive in Detroit Saturday morning. While in the Motor City, the Green Bay team will headquarter at the Belcrest hotel. Following Sunday's tilt with the Lions, which is expected to be one of the season's toughest games for both teams, the Packers will leave Detroit, arriving in Chicago Monday. The team will remain at Chicago during the early days of the week, as on Thanksgiving Day they are scheduled to clash with the Cardinals at Wrigley field. The Chicago address of the Packers will be the Knickerbocker hotel...HEAD FOR ST. LOUIS: Friday morning the team will head for St. Louis, staying at the Melbourne hotel in that city. The Packers and Gunners will meet in their first National league engagement Sunday, Dec. 2, which will mark the close of the league season for 1934, barring only the playoff between the eastern and western divisions. The St. Louis-Green Bay game will be run off at Sportman's park, the home of the baseball Cardinals, and as St. Louis fans have been taking to professional football with a great deal of enthusiasm, a large crowd is expected...NO NEW INJURIES: The Packers are nursing no new injuries on the eve of the game with Detroit, and the battle at the Michigan city really is billed as a hair raiser. Green Bay's players are believed ready to snap out of the lethargic play which characterized their appearance in Milwaukee last week, and give the league-leading Lions the fight of their lives. Word from Detroit indicates that the Lions regard this contest as one of the most crucial of the season. The Michigan team was lucky to wriggle out of the game at Green Bay with a 3 to 0 decision, gleaned through Glenn Presnell's record-breaking 54-yard field goal, and the Lions have been stressing their kicking department this week, in the hopes of picking up a few more points by the placement route.
LIONS ARE GIVEN ARDUOUS WORKOUT
NOV 22 (Detroit) - Coach Potsy Clark has his Detroit Lions football squad working overtime preparing for the game here Sunday afternoon in the University of Detroit stadium with the powerful Green Bay Packers. After putting his 22 players through a two-hour workout Wednesday morning at Chandler stadium, Clark ordered the squad to report for a blackboard drill on Packer plays in the afternoon and evening. "The Lions are meeting an exceptionally strong team in the Packers next Sunday," Potsy said in announcing he would conduct blackboard drills twice daily for the balance of the week. "We just squeezed through with a 3-0 victory when we played the Packers earlier in the season at Green Bay. We're going to be lucky to beat any Packer team twice in one season. That's why I want to have my club on edge for the game." The Lions spent considerable time in Wednesday morning's practice devising ways to stop Bob Monnett and Roger Grove, backfield aces of the Packers. The two former Michigan State players caused the Lions no end of trouble in the first game between the two clubs.
PACKERS START ON FINAL ROAD TRIP OF YEAR
NOV 23 (Green Bay) - Leaving Green Bay for the last time this season, the Packers entrained at 12:30 o'clock this afternoon for Chicago, which will be their first point of call on their way to Detroit, scene of Sunday's professional football contest between the Bays and the Lions. The Packers will not be home again until Dec. 3, following their season's finale against the Gunners at St. Louis, and the entire squad will not return here at that time. The players who live in the Pacific coast area, such as Tar Schwammel, Carl Jorgenson, Al Norgaard and Nate Barragar, will head for California directly from St. Louis, where the Packers who live in Texas, such as Al Rose and Les Peterson, probably will head for the southlands...IN GOOD SPIRITS: The majority, however, will return here when the season is completed. Many will be employed in Green Bay for the next few months, and others are established in business or professional work here. The team appeared to be in good spirits as it left for Detroit today, players hoping to shake off the lethargy displayed at Milwaukee last Sunday. Coach E.L. Lambeau impressed upon the men that their performance would have to be vastly improved at Detroit if they intend to keep the Lions' score within reasonable figures...WILL HEAD WEST: After the St. Louis game Dec. 2, Lambeau will return to Green Bay, and then will make a hurried jump to New York to witness the championship playoff between the winners of the eastern and western National league divisions, whoever they are. Right not it looks like the Giants for the seaboard and either the Chicago Bears or Detroit for the western section. After witnessing the playoff battle, Lambeau will go into conference with club officials at a National league meeting, held in New York. He then will swing for the Pacific coast, taking a southern route to confer with likely football talent in the Alabama, Louisiana and Texas areas. Arriving at San Francisco, the Packer coach will witness the annual East-West gridiron encounter, and will interview a number of players who are slated to appear in this classic. The game will be played New Years' day.
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORT
NOV 23 (Green Bay) - Speaking of rumors brings to mind the latest one we have heard of Green Bay's Packers. It is to the effect that some of the larger clubs are preparing to put the skids under Green Bay. It probably is the most inane rumor to come to life yet. Green Bay, despite its poor showing this year, is still next to the Bears in drawing power on the road. At Detroit Sunday the Lions expect the largest crowd of the season when the Packers play here. Recently, Joe Carr, president of the league, told Wayne K. Otto, a Chicago sportswriter, that Green Bay could stay in the pro league as long as it cares to. He added that Green Bay carried the league in the road-building days and that has not been forgotten. If, and when, Green Bay ever drops out of the league, it will not be to go to Milwaukee, or because the others forced her out. It will be because Green Bay fans don't want the club anymore.
LIONS BUILD ON DEFENSE FOR PACKERS' PASSES
NOV 23 (Detroit) - Arnold Herber, right halfback of the Green Bay Packers, who oppose the Detroit Lions Sunday afternoon in the University of Detroit stadium, was a much discussed football player Thursday morning when the Lions' squad met for practice at Chandler Stadium. It seems that Coach Potsy Clark, when looking over report sheets on the Packers sent him by Detroit scouts who have watched the Green Bay team perform in their last six games, observed that Herber has developed into one of the best forward passers in the NFL. The information was not pleasing to Clark. His thoughts went back to the last three games his team has played when long passes have been converted into touchdowns by their opponents. Warren Heller and Joe Skladany, of the Pittsburgh Pirates, started all the trouble when they connected with a long pass to score the first touchdown of the season against the Lions three weeks ago. One week later Reb Russell and Bill Smith, the passing combination of the Chicago Cardinals, came through with several long passes which resulted in scores. Last Sunday the passing partners of the St. Louis Gunners, Manuel "Fat" Rapp and Paul Moss, completed a fifty-five yard pass for a touchdown. The forward pass incidents which took place in the Pirate, Cardinal and Gunner games still irk Clark. For the reason he eliminated the usual practice of polishing up the Lions' attack Thursday morning and put the team through an hour's drill on pass defense. Reports from the publicity bureau of the Packers tell a glowing story of the passing prowess of Herber. It is claimed that he has developed speed, accuracy and distance when throwing a football; that he passes 30, 40 and 70 yards to the left or right on the dead run and can hit his receiver in the chest on every pass. Herber is strictly a Green Bay product. He learned his football at West High school, in Green Bay, attended the University of Wisconsin and has played all his post-graduate football with the Packers. At the present time Herber is leading the NFL in the number of passes thrown, the number completed, the yards gained by passes and in the percentage of passes completed. The Lions' chances of defeating the Packers Sunday improved Thursday when Dr. C.E. Joseph, the club's trainer, informed Clark that Tom Hupke, out of the lineup since the Cardinals game with a wrenched knee, would be available for a few minutes service against Green Bay. Joseph also has Dutch Clark ready if the services of the flashy quarterback are needed. The Packers will arrive here Saturday morning.
GREEN BAY PACKERS PLAY LIONS SUNDAY
NOV 23 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers today were en route to Detroit where they will clash with the
Detroit Lions, leaders in the National Professional Football league, Sunday. The Packers are in excellent shape, having suffered no injuries in their 9 to 0 defeat at the hands of the Chicago Cardinals in Milwaukee last Sunday, Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau said. After finishing their engagement in Detroit, the Bays will go to Chicago where they will meet the Cardinals on Thanksgiving day for their third and deciding contest of the season.
PRO GRID NOTES
NOV 24 (Green Bay) - The Chicago Bears have another tough assignment Sunday as the Halas-men are booked for the second of their Chicago city series with the Cardinals. A bumper throng is expected to witness the combat at Wrigley field...There will be a "dog fight" at the Polo grounds this weekend as Boston is booked to have it out with the Giants. This is one game that the rival owners, George Marshall and T.J. Mara, are both anxious to be victorious...Lud Wray and his Philadelphia Quakers will be the guests of the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets field Sunday. Several weeks ago, the Dodgers nosed out a close victory but the Phillies hope to even the count this time out...The St. Louis Gunners put their heads in the buzzsaw at Detroit and, when the smoke blew over, the Mound City aggregation was on the short end of a 40 to 7 count. Evidently, the Lions are roaring just as loud as ever...The fast stepping Chicago Cards dented the dope bucket by taking the Packers into camp by a score of 9 to 0 in a game at Milwaukee. The battle field was a sea of mud and Green Bay's famous air attack was a flop...Jack Manders and his trusty right foot again came through for the Chicago Bears in a storybook finish that enabled the national champions to pull a game out of the fire in the final minute of play against New York...With the Bears trailing, 9 to 7, a fumble on a pass from center deep in New York territory and Chicago recovered. This was the long awaited break and the Bears capitalized as Manders placekicked for three points and victory...Some 50,000 fans saw the Giants and Bears clash in New York. This is one of the biggest crowds in professional football history. Both teams were on their toes every minute of play, and the spectators had a rare gridiron treat...If the Redskins should happen to defeat the Giants this weekend, the Boston club would be tied with the New Yorkers for the leadership of the Eastern division, and if Brooklyn wins, the Dodgers will also be close up...The Chicago Bears and Detroit clubs should profit well in their two-game series on Thanksgiving Day and Dec. 2. According to reports, both teams have advance sales that point to capacity crowds for the crucial series...Cliff Battles boosted his bid for an all-pro halfback selection by staging a couple of touchdown sprees for Boston in the 14 to 7 victory at Philadelphia. Steve Hokuf, ex-Nebraska gridder, added both extra points...As usual the Eagles' scoring ran true to form as "Speed Merchant" Hanson produced the lone Quaker City touchdown and Kirkman converted. Aside from Hanson, Philadelphia has but few listings in the league's touchdown table...Chris Cagle, who has sort of been in the background this year, shot a pass to halfback Kercheval and the Brooklyn Dodger carrier entered the end zone with a six pointer against Pittsburgh. Kercheval got the extra point and later booted a field goal...Owner Rooney of the Pirates' clan is still speculating with his battle front in hopes of getting together a club which will go somewhere next year. Pittsburgh is hot for pro football, and a winning eleven would pay...Dutch Clark, stellar Detroit quarterback, watched the St. Louis game from the sidelines and he saw plenty as the Lions played rings around the invaders from the Mound City. Presnell called the signals for the Detroiters...Paul Moss, a great end from Purdue, made the St. Louis touchdown in the third stanza when he snagged a pass from Rapp. Gene Alford, who was playing against his old Portsmouth teammates, came through with the extra point...Buss, the Bears' recruit tackle, will probably be more careful in the future about handling balls in the end zone. The husky lineman touched one down in the Giant game by mistake and it gave New York a two point safety...Trade winds are blowing again around the National league as several of the clubs start looking towards 1935. A half dozen player deals are now being cooked up which will send veterans into new gridiron territory.
PACKERS SURE TO PROVE TOUGH
NOV 24 (Detroit) - Twenty-two members of the Green Bay Packers football squad, headed by their coach, E.L. (Curly) Lambeau, will arrive here Saturday morning. The Packers meet the fast-stepping Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon in a football contest that will have an important bearing on the outcome of the hectic race in the western division of the NFL between the Lions and the world champion Chicago Bears. The Packers and the Lions will be meeting for the second time this year. Last October the Lions journeyed to Green Bay and, through a record breaking fifty-four yard placement kick by Glenn Presnell, came through with a 3-0 triumph...LIONS HAD DEFENSIVE EDGE: Defensively the Lions had a decided edge in the game. Offensively the Packers were superior. Only a great tackle from behind by Dutch Clark prevented Bob Monnett, former Michigan State backfield act, from winning the game for the Packers in the third quarter when he was out in the clear. While the Packers were forced to acknowledge defeat, they accomplished a feat no other team the Lions have opposed has been able to do. They prevented the Lions from scoring a touchdown. They also enjoy the distinction of being the one team in the league able to hold the highly geared Detroit offensive to a low score. Boston, Brooklyn, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Philadelphia and the Chicago Cardinals have failed to stop the Lions from running up large scores. Starting with Al Rose, six-foot three-inch end from the University of Texas, and boasting such stalwart linemen as Tar Schwammel, burly tackle from Oregon State; Mike Michalske, 200-pound guard from Penn State; Carl Jorgensen, strapping tackle from St. Mary's College, and Milt Gantenbein, sensational end from the University of Wisconsin, the Packers boast one of the finest lines in post-graduate football...PACKERS ARE IN SHAPE: Monnett, Joe Laws, Hank Bruder, Arnold (Buckets) Goldenberg, Clarke Hinkle and Roger Grove make up the backfield of the Packers. The Green Bay entry has been handicapped all season long from injuries. Every man, however, will be in shape for the Lions' game here Sunday. Dutch Clark, ace quarterback for the Lions, will see service in the Packers' game. The former Colorado College flash has been out of the game for two weeks with an injured left ankle.
GREEN BAY PACKERS TO FACE BRILLIANT DETROIT GRID TEAM
NOV 24 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers worked out here this afternoon in preparation for their NFL 
Chicago Cardinals (4-5) 9, Green Bay Packers (5-5) 0
Sunday November 18th 1934 (at Milwaukee)
contest tomorrow afternoon against the Detroit Lions - 
and so did the Lions. Potsy Clark, taking no chances on
an upset for the Bays at this crucial stage of the league
race, chased his squad into uniforms today and ran
them through a final drill on the University of Detroit field.
"The Packers gave us our toughest game of the year so
far," Clark explained, "and a defeat Sunday would be
tragic for the Detroit cause.".. PRESNELL TRIES KICK:
Glenn Presnell, who defeated the Packers with a 54-
yard field goal at Green Bay, was planted in the middle
of the field today and booted ball after ball at the goal
posts, indicating that Potsy will kick whenever his team
bogs anywhere near the Green Bay goal line. The Bays
appeared in good condition, and their vigorous drill
indicated that they will make a desperate attempt to
annex a victory. The team has established headquarters
at the Belcrest hotel. Coach E.L. Lambeau has not
announced his starting lineup, but he indicated that he
intends to use Arnold Herber from the start, in an effort
to penetrate Detroit's fine defense with an attack from
the air. Herber only played one period against the Cards
at Milwaukee last Sunday, and his three tosses were
intercepted, but conditions were far from pleasant, and
the star passer had trouble getting the ball to go in the
right direction..WORK AT TOP SPEED: Potsy Clark has
indicated that he will drive his team at top speed right
from the start, attempt to roll up two touchdowns, and
then will settle back into a defensive game. As the
Packers have much the same idea, the contest should
develop into a red hot offensive battle, with a large crowd
on hand to watch the squads in action.
CRUCIAL GAMES ON TAP
NOV 25 (Detroit) - Four games, any or all of which may
have an important bearing on the disposition of the
championship, are scheduled in the NFL Sunday. In the 
​western division, the Green Bay Packers visit Detroit in
an effort to avenge a defeat handed them by the Lions at
Green Bay recently. The improved Chicago Cardinals
meet their civic rivals, the Bears, at Chicago. Both the
Lions and Bears are unbeaten and untied and will try to
keep their records clean until they meet in a home and
home series next week. On the east frontier, the Boston
Redskins invade New York with an opportunity of tying
the Giants for the lead in the east section. Philadelphia
will play the rampant Dodgers of Brooklyn, who still have
an outside chance to win the title in their division.
​PACKERS MEET STRONG LION ELEVEN TODAY
NOV 25 (Detroit) - With Dutch Clark on the sidelines
ready to be rushed into the fray should his accurate foot
be needed for a drop kick, the Detroit Lions will be back
at full strength for their game here tomorrow with the
Green Bay Packers. Clark, ace quarterback and high
scorer of the league, has been on the injured list for two
weeks due to a strained ligament he suffered in the
game with the Chicago Cardinals two weeks ago. Potsy
Clark, coach of the Lions, is frankly fearful of the Bays.
He sent his charges through stiff two hour workouts and
two blackboard drills each day. Clark remembers the
first game at the Bay when Glen Presnell's sensational
51-yard placekick saved the Lions from a tie. With Clark
also available, the Lions have two players who can score
via the field goal route. The Packers are the only team
that has been able to keep the Lions from crossing their
goal line. Coach Clark has been priming his defense for
the aerial tosses of Arnold Herber, the shifty running of
Bob Monnett, Joe Laws, Hank Bruder and Roger Grove,
and the line plunges of Buckets Goldenberg and Clark
Hinkle. Winners of 10 straight games, the same as the
Bears, Detroit can shatter the league record by turning back the Packers for No. 11 in a row. The Packers hold the present record. On defense, Father Lumpkin, blocking halfback from Georgia Tech, and Capt. George Christensen, 240 pound tackle from Oregon, are the stalwarts. Tom Hupke, ex-Alabama guard who was injured in the Cardinal game, now is back in action, too.
GREEN BAY ELEVEN BRINGS STARS HERE TO MEET LIONS
NOV 25 (Detroit) - The Green Bay Packers, NFL champions in 1929, 1930 and 1931, makes their first appearance of the season here Sunday afternoon in the University of Detroit Stadium, clashing with Potsy Clark's Detroit Lions in the most important game the Lions have engaged in at home this season. The Packers bring a wealth of post-graduate football material here. Starting in Green Bay in the fall of 1918, as representatives of a meat packing company that bloomed as a wartime industry and has long since been forgotten by Green Bay followers, the Packers have become known from coast to coast by their well-balanced, high-scoring, powerful teams. They joined the NFL when it was first organized 13 years ago, after playing four years of independent football. They have retained their high standing in the league ever since. Every year rumors start that the Packers will be moved to Milwaukee, a city three times larger in population than the town they represent, but when the next season gets underway the Packers again are in Green Bay. The Packers at the present time are owned by the Green Bay Football Corp., in which hundreds of Green Bay citizens are stockholders. Prominent city officials and citizens serve as directors. This widespread ownership has built a community spirit and civic pride in the Packers that has gone a long way toward putting the team where it is in the football world today. The coach of the Packers is Earl L. (Curly) Lambeau. He is the oldest coach in the league from point of service, having guided the team for 16 years, and he is probably the best known. Under his coaching, the Packers have won 150 games, lost 35 and tied 19. Three national championships were won by the team in consecutive years. Until the Lions and Bears tied the league consecutive record of 10 straight victories last Sunday the record was held by Lambeau's 1929 team. Lambeau's clubs were the first to use the forward pass as a consistent offensive weapon, and for that reason Lion football followers can expect to see plenty of passing Sunday afternoon. The Packers' mentor is depending upon Arnold Herber, right halfback, to pass the Lions into defeat. Herber is rated as one of the finest passers of all time. His tosses are accurate, travel with tremendous speed and he is especially adept at throwing long ones. Scouts, who have watched Herber develop from a mediocre passer  to the best in the league, report the Green Bay product can pass 30,40, 70 yards to the left or right on the dead run. Teaming with Herber in the Packers' backfield are Bob Monnett, Joe Laws, Hank Bruder and Buckets Goldenberg. Monnett was the best ball carrier at Michigan State during the Jimmy Crowley regime. He is a better all-around player since joining the post-graduate loop. Against the Lions last month at Green Bay, Monnett was a constant threat. Laws, a reliable speedy halfback from the University of Iowa, who throws passes with his left hand, has enjoyed a splendid year, his first in the league. "Hard Luck Hank" Bruder, former Northwestern University fullback, will call signals for the Packers Sunday. Bruder recently scored 22 points single-handed against the Cincinnati Reds. Goldenberg is the most popular player on the squad with Green Bay fans. Buckets attended the University of Wisconsin. He was a teammate of John Schneller, Lions' right end. He is the most effective blocker on the team. With both the Lions and Packers at full strength, one of the season's hardest fought battles is expected. The contest will start at 2 o'clock.
