(CHICAGO) - Homer Griffith, former Southern California star, again jinxed the Packers just as he did in the game at Milwaukee 10 days ago and, as a result, the Bays bowed to the Chicago Cardinals here Sunday afternoon at Wrigley field by a score of 6 to 0. Once again, the Packers proved to be lost in the muddy going. The field was nearly as bad as it was the State Fair park in West Allis and the Bays simply could not click with their much famed aerial drives. Coach E.L. Lambeau's aggregation showed lots of hustle and fight and the players were giving everything they had but it was just one of those days when it seemed impossible for the Packers to pile up consecutive yardage when they had the oval in scoring territory. Getting back to Mr. Griffith from the Pacific coast. He did his stuff in the first half minute of play and this completed the scoring for the day.
When the teams lined up for the opening of hostilities,
Green Bay kicked to the Cardinals and Griffith wrapped
his arms around the ball three yards away from the goal
line. He picked up steam slowly, sidetracking a couple
of Bayites who were down the field fast under the kick.
Then he veered across the gridiron and suddenly cut
back and headed for the Green Bay uprights, which
were looming up nearer at every step. Two of his 
teammates helped clear the way and he galloped the
last 30 yards without a hand being laid on him. It was
one of those football thrills that you often see in the
movies but seldom on the gridiron. Cardinal enthusiasts
cheered loudly and even the handful of Bay followers
gave Griffith a good hand for his remarkable feat. Dave
Cook, ex-Illini, missed the goal kick but it didn't make 
any difference as those scrappy Cardinals seemed to
turn into super-demons on the defense whenever a
Bay touchdown threat loomed. The Griffith touchdown
didn't take the wind out of the Green Bay sails as the
Packers received the next kickoff and poured it on with
everything they had - but it wasn't enough.
Soon after in this hair raising first period, the Packers
got underway when Griffith punted to Monnett and Bob
ran it back to the 30. Roger Grove slashed through for 
a first down. Clarke Hinkle and Buckets Goldenberg
picked up a couple of yards and the Grove wheeled
loose and ran the oval to the Cards' 14. It looked as if
the Packer touchdown stock was rising when a short
pass, Monnett to Goldenberg, added nine and Hinkle
picked up the extra yard for a first down on the Chicago
4. Hinkle lost a couple of yards on two rushes. Monnett
fumbled but recovered for a loss. Then Bob was mussed
up about 15 yards behind the line, the Cards took the
ball and hopes for a Green Bay score was muddied out.
Shortly before the end of the first stanza, a penalty for
holding put the Cards back close to their goal line and
Griffith cleared the danger by a good punt to his own
46. After another exchange of kicks, time was called
with the ball in the Cardinals' possession on their own
22. The Bays got a good break right at the start of the
second quarter when Sarboe was rushed and his punt
sailed out of bounds on the Cards' 31. Once again the
Bays' attack fizzled. Hinkle couldn't gain, a pass by
Monnett flopped and Joe Laws lost a yard. Hinkle's
field goal attempt was wide of the posts and Chicago
scrimmaged on its 20. The remainder of the period was
mostly a kicking duel with the Bays having the best of
it. However, the Bays spurted again just before halftime
when Laws ran the ball to the Cards' 29.
The rally went haywire when a pass by Herber fell into
the hands of a mud-begrimed Cardinal only nine yards
from the goal line. Two rushes were checked by the
Bays and when the gun popped for the period's end, the
ball was held by the Cardinals only eight yards from the
uprights. Starting the third quarter, the Packers ran into
trouble after Herber had received the kickoff and waded
back to the Bays' 30. Herber tried a lob pass over the
scrimmage front and Tipton snagged it on Green Bay's
37. The Cards lost 10 yards on successive penalties
for offside and backfield in motion. Griffith's punt was
downed on Green Bay's nine. Bruder punted from his
goal line and the Cards had the ball on the Packers' 35.
Cook and Mikulak made it a first down with something
to spare and the Cards were only 22 yards from a
touchdown. Then the Packers halted three line thrusts
and an attempted field goal was blocked by Jorgensen.
Rose recovered for the Packers on the 29. With the aid
of an offside "five", the Packers for a first down, but a
couple of passes failed and Bruder kicked to Griffith,
who took a mud bath on his 35. Following an exchange
of kicks, which had backed the Cards into danger
territory, Mikulak fumbled the ball and Rose fell on it on
the Card 23. This seemed like a long delayed break and
Coach Lambeau rushed a half dozen fresh players into
the fray. But the Cards were just too tough. A pass
fizzled, Hinkle made but a yard and then two passes
were knocked down and the Cards took the ball.
Griffith then dashed around right end for 13 yards. 
Following two exchanges of kicks, Bruder booted to
the Cards' 49-yard line as the quarter ended.
The Packers tried everything in the last round, but the
Cards kept a solid front and killed time as much as
possible. The Packers got a couple of first downs in the
early part of the final period, but it was wasted energy.
On the other hand, several of the Chicago backfielders
swept the wings for creditable gains, which kept the
Packers fairly well in their own backyard. Every time the
Bays got possession of the ball, they would shoot a 
pass but it generally proved to be a dud shell. Weather conditions were so bad that the smallest crowd which has witnessed a National league game in Chicago in a dozen years barely spotted the spacious stands of Wrigley field. By actual count there only 934 paid admissions, while the pass list turnstile count was 804. Unofficially speaking, Owner Charles Bidwill, owner of the Chicago Cardinals, "took it on the chin" to the extent of some $7,500. And that is a lot of money these days, especially at the fag end of a professional football season. However, Bidwill is a demon for punishment and he leaves with his team on Saturday for a tour to the Pacific coast. He has about a half dozen exhibition games scheduled. Coach Lambeau, after the game, announced the suspension of Norgard and Carl Jorgensen. Nearly all of these players left this morning with the team for St. Louis, where on Sunday the Bays will conclude their 1934 season with a game against the Gunners. Aside from Mike Michalske, the Bays came out of the Cardinal "Waterloo" No. 2 in fair shape. Mike's ankle is very sore and the veteran guard had to helped off the field. It is likely that Tiny Engebretsen will start in Michalske's place this Sunday against St. Louis.

NOV 30 (St. Louis) - Curly Lambeau's Green Bay Packers, who tripped the Detroit Lions, 3 to 0, last Sunday, and then lost 6 to 0 to the Chicago Cardinals yesterday, have made arrangements to finish their training sometime tomorrow on the drill grounds in Forest Park in preparation for their National league pro football game with the St. Louis Gunners Sunday afternoon at Sportsman' Park. Coach Chile Walsh, who has two complete teams working out daily, will name 
his starting lineup following today's practice session.
The former Cincinnati Red players who joined the
Gunners several weeks ago are expected to be in top
form for the Packers contest. Brute Mulleneaux, center;
Earl Elser and Sunny Monday, tackles; Russ Lay, 
guard, and Les Corzine, fullback, who have delivered in
great style so far, now have the Gunners' array of plays
mastered. Mulleneaux, Lay and Corzine are slated for
starting positions. Corzine, who is working with the
team's other two powerful backs, Swede Johnson and
Fat Rapp, figures in several plays with George Rogge,
Paul Moss and two or three backs in which he throws
southpaw passes to them. The left-handed Corzine
throws short and tricky passes.
DEC 1 (St. Louis) - The Green Bay Packers are 
prepared to meet the St. Louis Gunners, newcomers to
the NFL, at Sportman's Park here tomorrow afternoon.
The kickoff is set promptly for 2:15 o'clock. The Bays
took a short workout at the park this morning, and all
the gridders participated, although several of Coach E.
L. Lambeau's men were hobbling around in a way that
didn't put them in the 60-minute class for Sunday's 
clash with the much-improved Gunners. St. Louis has
been primed to take a fall out of the Bays, but Coach
Lambeau's crew is intent on taking the victory that will
assure its fourth place in the league standings...DON'T
LIKE SPLIT: The majority of the players can't see the 
split league ratings, and it is the general opinion around
the circuit that the eastern and western setup is a bit
off color, there being too many strong elevens in the
western division, while the eastern group isn't too hot. 
If it were a one standing percentage, the Packers would
be in fourth place, preceded only by the Chicago Bears,
Detroit Lions and New York Giants, but pressed closely
by the Chicago Cardinals and Boston Redskins. The
trip to St. Louis was made without excitement, as the
team pulled into the Mound City at 6 o'clock last night
and found the Melbourne hotel not a bad spot at all. The
St. Louis papers have been giving the Packers plenty of
ink in their sport columns, and "Chili" Walsh, the big
mogul of the Gunners, is expecting a big crowd if the
weather is fair...CONZELMAN DROPS IN: One of the
first of the football notables to drop in on the Packers
was Jimmy Conzelman, former Milwaukee Badger,
Detroit and Providence Steamroller leader. Jimmy is
right here, as he as had a successful season as coach
of the Washington university eleven, and on Turkey day
Conzelman's clan took its bitter rivals, St. Louis
university, into camp by a 27 to 7 score. Conzelman
hasn't changed a bit. He still sports the derby, spats
and cane. Walter (Brick) Smith, a Green Bayite, who is
​writing sports for Frank (Zach) Taylor's St. Louis Star-
Times, was another caller, and he seemed to be more
than interested in the gridiron aggregation from his old
DEC 1 (St. Louis) - Green Bay's famous Packers, who
have won more professional football titles than any 
other club, will present the next opposition for the Gunners when they call at Sportman's Park tomorrow. To meet the occasion, Coach Chile Walsh announced today that he has juggled and shuffled his lineup so that his heaviest backfield will be on duty at the starting whistle. This will find Sweder Johnston, 207 pounds, paired at the halfback positions with 205-pound Manuel (Fat) Rapp. Les Corzine, 212, will be at fullback and 189-pound Blake Workman will be at quarterback...BEAT GUNNERS OF 1933: The Packers, who came to St. Louis last fall and trimmed Gwynn Henry's fine Gunner eleven, 21-0, have been having their ups and downs this season but recently reached their peak when they trimmed the high-powered Detroit Lions, 3-0, and practically knocked them out of the titular race. "There will be no letup in the game with the Gunners," Coach Curly Lambeau has promised. Such pronounced stars as Clarke Hinkle, the brilliant kicker; big Hank Bruder, one of the game's hardest-hitting backs; Joe Laws, who starred last season for Iowa and gave a masterful ball carrying and left-handed passing exhibition in the All-Star game at Soldier's Field, Chicago, in September, and Milt Gantenbein, one of the sport's greatest ends, will be in the Packers' starting lineup...ORGANIZED IN 1918: The team, which was organized by Lambeau, then an employee of a wartime boom packing plant in Green Bay, has carried the name "Packers" since the fall of 1918, though the packing house long since has been forgotten. The team in now owned by the Green Bay Football Corp., in which many citizens of the Wisconsin city are stockholders. Twelve members of the team are year-around residents of Green Bay. Several have married into prominent families there. The team itself is known as the "pro team with the college spirit".
DEC 1 (St. Louis) - Coach Chile Walsh of the St. Louis Gunners announced that he would start the heaviest backfield tomorrow against the Green Bay Packer. This will find Swede Johnston, the former Packers at halfback with Manuel (Fat) Rapp, while Les Corzine, the former Cincinnati Red, will be at full. Blake Workman will be the signal caller. The Packers arrived here today and took a light tuneup in Forest Park. Curly Lambeau, Green Bay chieftain, announced that there would be no letup at somebody's expense for the unexpected defeat his club suffered Thanksgiving day against the Cardinals. So far this season the
Chicago Cardinals (5-6) 6, Green Bay Packers (6-6) 0
Thursday November 29th 1934 (at Chicago)
Gunners have lost but one game - and that by a 41-7 score to the Detroit Lions. They beat Pittsburgh's Pirates twice and won five independent games.
DEC 1 (St. Louis) - Coach Chile Walsh, who surprised his  played by having the first stringers drill on the defense against the "seconds" using Green Bay plays yesterday, has the St. Louis Gunners all set for the NFL contest with the Packers tomorrow afternoon at Sportsman's Park. Edward J. Butler, president of the Gunners, announced that the game will get underway at 2:15 o'clock. The St. Louis Professional Soccer League match will begin at 1:15. The Gunners' first-string lineup shows George Rogge, pass-snatching end, on the left side of the line. Mack Gladden, ace of the local defensive ends, will be at the other wing. Paul Moss, the all-American from Purdue, will be used in the reserve tole. There are no other changes on the Gunners' line, as Brute Mulleneaux, center; Leonard McGirl and Sandy Sandburg, tackles, are the other starters. Blake Workman, the clever quarterback from Texas, will call the signals for the Gunners' heaviest backfield combination. Chester "Swede" Johnson and Manuel "Fat" Rapp will be at the halfbacks and Les Corzine will be at full. This is the first time this season that Walsh has been able to have this three hardest-driving 200-pounders in the same ball-carrying department. Curly Lambeau's Packers are due to arrive some time today and engage in a light limbering-up exercise on the drill grounds in Forest Park. The Packers, tired from their two games within one week, will very likely alternate their two complete teams against the Gunners. There is little to choose from either combination. The Packers, who handed the Gunners a trimming last season, will introduce another new star, Joe Laws, all-America from Iowa, to St. Louis fans. Laws, who graduated last June, has been playing quarterback for the Packers in recent games.
DEC 2 (St. Louis) - Striving to finish the season with a better record than they made in 1933, when they lost but two of their 16 games, the St. Louis Gunners will be at full strength this afternoon when they oppose the Green Bay Packers in a NFL contest at Sportsman's Park. The kickoff is set for 2:15 o'clock. This season Chile Walsh's eleven has chalked up two victories in three games with National league foes, and soundly trounced five independent aggregations. The team's lone defeat came at the hands of the Detroit Lions. For the first time this season, the Gunners will have their three hardest-driving and heaviest backs - Chester "Swede" Johnston, Manuel "Fat" Rapp and Les Corzine - working together. Johnston, heretofore a fullback, will be stationed at right halfback next to Rapp, and Corzine will be at fullback. Blake Workman will be at quarterback. Walsh will rely on his veteran ends from last season, George Rogge, the pass-snatcher, and Mack Gladden, sturdy defensive flankers, with Paul Moss, the all-America from Purdue, in the reserve role. In Brute Mulleneaux, center; Russ Lay and Leonard McGirl, guards, and Babe Lyons and Sandy Sandburg, the Gunners will start five big linemen. The Packers, with a league record of six victories in 12 games, have not played up to their usual standard this season. However, Green Bay, which boasts of two teams composed of men weighing around 200 pounds, was good enough to hand the Detroit Lions their first setback of the season. Lambeau, who originally planned to start the eleven which came through so brilliantly in Detroit, may use the team which lost to the Cardinals in Chicago Thanksgiving day. The Packers are equipped with two "powerhouse" backfield combinations and each of the lines is composed of experience players. Joe Laws, all-America from Iowa, quarterback; Arnold Herber and Hank Bruder, halfbacks, and Clarke Hinkle, fullback, are likely to open hostilities but it would not be surprising if Lambeau rearranged his ball carrying department and calls on Buckets Goldenberg, Roger Grove, Bob Monnett and Earl Witte. When the Packers walloped the Gunners last season, Goldenberg was the offensive star of the contest. He broke through the Gunners' line for consistent gains and paved the way for the three touchdowns. In Lavern Dilweg, Milton Gantenbein, Alfred Rose and Al Norgard, ends; Claude Perry, Carl Jorgensen and Tar Schwammel, tackles; Bob Jones, Lon Evans and August Michalske, guards, and Nate Barragar and Arthur Bultman, centers, Lambeau has linemen who rate with the best in pro football. The game will be the Gunners' final league game of the season. Starting next Sunday, when they play the Brooklyn Dodgers, the Walshmen will engage in a series of pro-season games with N.L. teams. Preceding the football game will be a St. Louis Professional Soccer League match between the Centrals and the Hellrungs. The soccer game starts at 1 o'clock.
