SEPT 24 (Green Bay) - The largest crowd ever to attend
a sporting attraction in Green Bay saw the Packer-Bear
tussle. The paid attendance was 12,582, passing by
approximately 1,000 the previous record...Many fans
came in the morning, bringing their lunch to eat while
they waited for the game to begin. One good-natured
gentleman sat eating from a pot of beans with a spoon;
another had three pints of mile to keep his appetite
satisfied...Among the spectators was Chase Koons, a
full-blooded Indian who played with the famous Jim
Thorpe at the Carlisle Indian school. He came down
from the Indian reservation at Hayward..When Nagurski
scored the final Bear touchdown he figured in as perfect
play as has been seen here in a long time. The play
was a delayed cutback. The entire right side of the
Packer line was sucked in when it looked like the play
was going to the Bears' left but Nagurski cut back
sharply and swept through the right after Bay linemen
had been mowed down after they came in. He ran 34
yards to score without a man touching him...Beattie
Feathers' work in returning punts was beautiful to
watch. He is the most elusive back the Bears have had
in many years. On several occasions, Packer ends who
usually never let a man get past them missed him
completely...Hewitt got the first tackle of the game for
the Bears when he dashed down to nail Monnett in his
tracks after the Bay back had received a punt, Hewitt
was on him again, smacking him down hard. They just
couldn't stop the great Bear end...The Packers used a huddle again, when it was believed that the Bears were catching some of their signals...A pair of old Packer stars were among those present. Eddie Kotal, an outstanding halfback of a few years ago, came down from Stevens Point, while Red Smith, also a back of some years back, came from Madison for the baseball game and remained over for the grid encounter...On one occasion Clarke Hinkle had to kick from behind the goalposts. There is a gentleman's agreement between teams that they move the ball out if the posts are in the way, but the Bears wouldn't adhere to it and forced him to boot from a ticklish spot. He managed to get off a fine kick, just missing the cross bar. Clarke's punting was fine throughout the game...Milt Gantenbein, Buckets Goldenberg and Roger Grove were knocked out in the course of the game. All reentered after a rest, but they weren't the same. You never are, at least, for a day, after you get knocked out by the Bears. They hit for keeps...Tackling by Green Bay men was poor on some occasions. When Nagurski broke through for a 30-yard gain early in the game, at least three men had chances to get him. but all failed and it remained for Mike Michalske to pull him down from behind after catching him...A threat of rain hung over the field throughout the day, but the drops never came, much to the relief of some 13,000.
SEPT 25 (Green Bay) - The same impressive personnel that last season won the National league's eastern sectional title will appear against the Green Bay Packers at Milwaukee next Sunday, when the New York Giants make their only Wisconsin appearance of the present season on the new State Fair park football gridiron. Added to these are several outstanding stars of last year's university squad, the best known being Ed Danowski, Fordham's brilliant captain, and John Del Isola, who was rated with the best in the east last season as a member of the same squad. The appearance of the great Danowski at the West Allis state fair park is certain to draw plenty of attention. He was rated one of the best backs in the nation, played in the East-West game, and is an exceptional kicker. Del Isola was a standout at Fordham for three seasons at center, being rated the best man in the east last season for his position...NEWMAN AT QUARTER: The Giants carry two quarterbacks in Harry Newman, one of Michigan's greats, and Willis Smith of Idaho. Newman was a unanimous choice for all-American in 1932 and won wide recognition last season, his first in the pro game. He was the outstanding passer of the National league last year, completing 53 out of 132 passes. In the Bear-Giant playoff game, he completed 13 of 17, seven of them consecutively. Smith is appearing with the Giants for the first time. In his three years at Idaho, he was mentioned on several all-star western teams, being noted for making long runs. His 148 pounds make him the smallest man on the squad. The rest of the backs are big and tough. One of the cleverest is Stuart Clancy of Holy Cross, who started with Newark, shifted to Stapleton, and now is starting his second full season with New York. Off season he is an embalmer...BURNETT A STAR: Elvin (Kink) Richards of Simpson can't be overlooked when the backs are turned loose, as he used his 195 pounds to fine advantage, and another sterling performer is John Norby, of Idaho. Richards was an outstanding freshman back in the National league last year, placing fifth in the league scoring list. He is one of the best punters in the circuit. Norby is starting his first year as a pro campaigner. He was the outstanding blocker of the West team in the last Shrine game on the Pacific coast. Another set of the backs the Packers must watch are Dale Burnett, the old reliable from Emporia, who strongly resembles Tommy Nash, and Harrison Stafford, who did his undergraduate work for Texas. Burnett has been poison for the Packers on more than one occasions, and is playing his fifth season with New York. Stafford is just breaking in, but won all-American honors at Texas two seasons ago. He starred with the Plebes at West Point last season, but didn't star with the math classes, and so joined the Giants' squad. Gar Davidson, Army coach, rates him one of the toughest blockers in his experience. Packer fans need no introduction to Bo Molenda, the Michigan battering ram who once smacked the line for Green Bay. Molenda annually plays his best game of the season against the Packers. He once did the blocking for Benny Friedman at Michigan...STRONG WITH TEAM: The other New York backs are Max Krause of Gonzaga and Ken Strong, the mighty N.Y.U. all-American. Krause was high scorer in the Pacific conference in 1931, but last season was on the sidelines with a side infection. Coach Steven Owen of the Giants predicts that he will be a standout fullback in the National league this season. After four seasons with Stapleton, Strong is starting his second year with the Giants. He finished second to Glenn Presnell of Portsmouth in the scoring race last year, and next to Jack Manders of the Bears, probably is the surest placement kicker in the circuit. Three ends will attempt to turn back the Packer flank rushes Sunday, the list including Ray Flaherty of Gonzaga, Morris (Red) Badgro of Southern California and Ike Frankian of St. Mary's - a formidable crew...FLAHERTY FIELD CAPTAIN: Flaherty is field captain, and is often pressed into service as kicker and signal caller. He made his pro debut in 1926 with Wilson's Wildcars, was with the New York Yankees for two years, served as Gonzaga head coach in 1930 and is starting his fourth season with the Giants. Badgro has played five years of professional football - four with the Giants and one with the Yankees. He was named all-league end last season for the second time. Frankian starred with St. Mary's university in 1927-9, being an all-American in 1928, and coached under Slip Madigan for three years. He was with Boston last year. The Giants carry the following tackles: Len Grant of N.Y.U., Bob Bellinger og Gonzaga, Cecil (Tex) Irvin of Davis-Elkins, Knuckles Boyle of the Pennsylvania coal mines and Bill Owen of Oklahoma A. and M., brother of the coach. Grant was an all-league tackle in 1931, and is one of the fastest linemen on the squad. He also is one of the strongest, his pet trick being to tear a deck of cards into quarters with his bare hands. Bellinger is starting his first season with the Giants. Irvin started with Providence, but changed to New York and has finished three seasons with the Giants...BOYLE A COAL MINER: Boyle is a coal miner during the offseason, and never saw a college. He played three years with the Cranberry A.A., and two seasons with Shenandoah. Owen is in his ninth season of pro ball and is an undertaker during the offseason. Bill also is an accomplished violinist. The New York guards are slared for plenty of action on Sunday, and the personnel is well suited to stand the gaff. The guards are John Cannella of Fordham, Tom Jones of Bucknell, Butch Gibson of Grove City, Bill Morgan of Virginia and Hank Reese of Temple. Cannella is a graduate in law, but has spent most of his time playing football. One year he was with Paterson, and another he spent with Bayonne. This is his second season with New York. Jones started with the Frankford Yellowjackets six years ago, but for the past four seasons has been with the Giants.  A broken collarbone kept him on the bench half of last season. Gibson is playing his fifth season with the Giants. He is very fast and is a mathematics professor during the offseason. Reese spends his summers as a lifeguard, and can alternate at center or guard. He was a sensation at the latter position during the closing weeks of last season. This is his first year with New York. In addition to Del Isola at center, Coach Owen has the veteran Mel Hein of Washington State, who was an all-league selection last year by a close vote over Ookie Miller of the Bears. He is a shark at intercepting passes.
SEPT 25 (Milwaukee) - Coach Steve Owen and his New York Giant squad of some 25 gridders checked in here at the Wisconsin hotel at noon today from Detroit, Mich. Coach Owen has made arrangements to use one of the high school fields for practice and the daily workouts will get underway tomorrow. According to the New Yorkers' pilot, breaks of the game paved the way for a Detroit victory last Sunday. However, he predicted his team would get back on victory row this weekend at the expense of the Green Bay Packers.
SEPT 25 (New York) - Glenn Campbell, for five years an end on the New York Giants professional football team, remained in critical condition today at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, where he underwent an operation for removal of a ruptured appendix Sunday. Hospital authorities said the star wingman was "still on the danger list."
SEPT 26 (Milwaukee) - The New York Giants worked out Tuesday afternoon at Borchert Field, and it was an impressive workout. Steve Owen and his huskies think that they should have beaten the Detroit Lions last Sunday, and they don't intend to let another victory slip away from them when they meet the Green Bay Packers at State Fair park. Owen drove his squad hard for about 90 minutes in the ball park. With the temperatures around 85, the big men soon were wringing wet and some shed their light jerseys to run around bare from the waist up. They worked principally to smooth out the kinks in their passing game, which went haywire in Detroit. Harry Newman was tossing long ones and Ed Danowski, the former Fordham star, was shooting fast flat ones over the line. They have a fine array of different straight passes and some intricate combinations of forwards and laterals. After the practice, Owen went out to State Fair park to see the new layout. He was impressed with the large seating capacity available and astonished at the "tailor made" gridiron. He hiked over much of the area of new turf, trying it with his heels, but found nothing worse than an occasional spot soft from sprinkling which he said undoubtedly would dry out by Sunday. Owen has hired a bus by the day and will haul his men out to the ball park every day for practice. Two things combined to defeat the Giants at Detroit. One was the poor physical condition of the squad, due to the ravages of influenza. The other was Newman's wildness in passing. Even with these handicaps, the real margin of defeat was Detroit's successful field goal and New York's misses in attempts from the field. The Detroit touchdown was one of those things which occur when the trailing team gambles to win.
SEPT 26 (Green Bay) - With a gratifying advance ticket sale at the Green Bay-New York game at State Fair park, Milwaukee, next Sunday, officials of the Packers ticket department in the Columbus club are preparing to wind up local sales for the Sept. 30 National league contest Friday at 9 p.m. All tickets will be removed from the racks in the office here and taken to Milwaukee where they will be placed on sale in the Milwaukee Journal service building and at a branch office in the Schroeder hotel. Choice reserve seats are being held at the local office for holders of season tickets here and corresponding seats in the State Fair park will be placed in the hands of those season ticket holders who wish to order them...SHOULD ORDER NOW: All residents of Green Bay and northeastern Wisconsin who are planning to attend the game and who wish to purchase their tickets here are urged, consequently, to get their orders in as soon as possible. All tickets uncalled for at the deadline will be taken to Milwaukee and sold, making reservations automatically forfeiting their pasteboards by not picking them up. Reservations may be made by telephone. The ticket office number is Adams 6180. Admission prices will scale from $2.50, $2.00, $1.50 for reserved seats and $1.00 for general admission. In addition there will be 50 cent tickets for children. General admission seats will be in the north and south bleachers and in special south end bleachers. Other ticket offices in the state for the New York game are: Stangle Hardware, Manitowoc; Pettibones, Appleton; and Ford-Hopkins drug stores in Appleton, Fond du Lac and Sheboygan...SEAT ABOUT 15,000: About 15,000 is the total capacity of the park with 3,500 seats in the big grandstand. Crews of men under the direction of Supt. R.H. Ammon have been working for several weeks to make the site ideal in every respect for the game. The playing field has been resodded and watered, stands have been gone over from top to bottom, paint has been supplied where needed and other arrangements have been made to make the park a modern football field in every respect...EVANS IS SHIFTED: Coach Lambeau sent his Packers through a three-hour drill this morning and the men showed more precision and snap in running through plays than at any other time this year. Two changes were noted in the line. Lon Evans, veteran guard, who also had some experience as a tackle, was shifted to a tackle, where he will remain at least for the next few weeks, the coach indicated. Evans is big and powerful and the coach would like be able to use him alongside of Mike Michalske, who is playing a great game at guard again. Evans has played the same guard as Michalske and the coach believes he is too valuable a man to have on the bench when Mike is in the game. A second change found big Champ Seibold at a guard position. The Oshkosh youth is fast and rugged and his weight would bolster the middle of the Packer line, the coach believes. He lacks experience, but is learning quickly and should become valuable addition to the squad, in the opinion of the coach.
SEPT 26 (New York) - The NFL coaches who came up from the ranks are gradually disappearing but Steve Owen, coach of the New York Giants, seems to be taking a firmer hold on the reins each season. Owen is starting this third full season as tutor of the 1934 Giants. He took over the helm in the middle of the 1931 season when he was still a player. Each succeeding season has seen his teams improve their past performance until last year he capped the climax by grabbing the eastern championship only to lose to the Chicago Bears, 23 to 21, in the playoff for the world title...HAILS FROM OKLAHOMA: The Giant coach hails from Oklahoma and went to college at Phillips in Enid, Okla., playing four years of varsity football to graduate in 1922. The following season he spent as a line coach at Phillips and then for two years he played with the Kansas City Cowboys. In 1926 the entire K.C. team was sold to the Giants and Owen came east where he has been ever since. He was a tackle - in fact his playing is almost a legend in the pro circuit. Whenever good tackle play is discussed or comparisons made, they are always measured by Owen or Cal Hubbard, who only this season retired from active play with Green Bay. Owen is 36 years old. Steve has a brother, Bill, who is still an active member of the Giant squad as a tackle. The two formerly played opposite sides of the line and were big reasons why the 1927 Giants won the league crown...TEAM TRIFLE LIGHTER: The 1934 edition of the Giants is a trifle lighter than the aggregation that won the sectional crown last year. The squad will average 204 plus pounds, with the forwards from end to end averaging 212 pounds, the backfield 193 pounds. Last year the squad average was a pound heavier but the difference is mainly attributable to the presence of Willie Smith, 148-pound recruit quarterback from Idaho, who will probably be the lightest man in the major league grid circuit this fall, ousting Gil Lefebvre of Cincinnati from that position. Without Smith, the backfield and team average would be much heavier than a year ago. Smith and Harry Newman, all-league quarter and former Michigan all-American, are the only ball toters under 185 pounds. Dale Burnett plays about 186 and the rest are all over 190 pounds. The Giants will have no heavyweight monsters to rival George Musso, the Bears' 265 pounds, or Fred Isaccson, 275 pound Cardinals' recruit tackle. Knuckles Boyle, the coal miner from West Hazleton, Pa., at 238 pounds is heaviest. Boyle was a star linemen on the Shenandoah independent team last fall.
SEPTEMBER 27 (La Crosse) - A letter from the Green Bay Packer management Wednesday informed officials of the La Crosse Businessmen's Club that the Packers' 1934 schedule is complete and the National pro league club is not seeking additional games. The local Businessmen's club contacted the Packers for the purpose of arranging a game between the former national champions and the La Crosse Lagers, the proceeds of the game being dedicated to a fund to provide lights for Logan field. Announcement of the content of the letter was made by Melford Nelson, president of the club. No further comment as to the future plans of his club's committee which has charge of the lighting project was forthcoming.
SEPT 26 (Green Bay) - The most amazing change we have ever seen in a football club was shown by the Chicago Bears when they beat the Packers Sunday. The team that played here looked no more like the team that only tied the All-Stars in Chicago a few weeks ago than Podunk college looks like Notre Dame Against the All-Stars the Bears looked old and ragged. They had little fire and appeared to be ready for the dump. But what a change a few weeks make! When the Bears came here they had that old time zip. They had fire, charge and precision of attack, gone was the sluggishness that characterized the game in Chicago, gone were all the weak spots that were so glaring in the battle with the collegians. The Bear team of today is without a doubt in our mind, the team to beat for the National league pennant...This little Feathers is about the classiest back to come up to the big time in many a year. He outsmarted Packer men who tried to tackle him time after time with the shiftiest bits of running we have ever seen. And as to this fellow Hewitt, well, there is no one like him in the country today. He's in a class by himself. Wayland Becker, former East high star, looked good the few minutes he saw action. He caught a pass for a good gain and pulled down a pair of ball carriers who tried to g around his end. Coach George Halas is working the youngsters in gradually to gain experience, which seems to be a good plan. The defeat by the Bears does not convince us that the Packers haven't a good ball club. Coach Lambeau has men who are capable of playing a lot of good football. The one defeat doesn't make the season, or spoil chances for a championship. There are 12 games to go.
SEPT 27 (Green Bay) - When the city representing the
NFL's smallest city meets the world's largest city at
Milwaukee next Sunday, the teams will be facing each
other on the gridiron for the twelfth time since 1928, 
when the short but bitter series got underway. There
have been no ties between the teams. In the 11 games
played to date, the Packers have taken six, the other
five going to New York. A couple of stars who later
joined the Packers were instrumental in spilling that
squad in the series opener in 1928, when the Giants
won 6 to 0. Cal Hubbard, appearing at end for New York
speared a pass to put the ball near the Green Bay goal
line, and Mule Wilson hammered over the touchdown...
LEWELLEN GOES OVER: Lewellen's touchdown and
Red Dunn's extra point kick at New York later in the
season avenged the defeat, 7 to 0. One of the greatest
games ever played by a Packer team was that at the
Polo Grounds in 1929 when the Bays upset a previously
unbeaten New York squad, 20 to 6. The game's feature
was the brilliant punting of Lewellen, who sent eastern
sportwriters into spasms. Green Bay touchdowns were
scored by McCrary, Molenda and Blood, Molenda
getting a pair of extra points. Plansky scored for the
Giants. Until the last minute of play, when Minnick went
in for Bowdoin, the Packers used but 11 men. The 
game practically gave the Packers their first national
championship, and in its defense next season they split
with the Giants. At Green Bay, the champions won out,
14 to 7. Nash and Blood got the Bay touchdowns, and
Dunn kicked both extra points. Sedbrook nabbed Benny
Friedman's pass to score for the visitors, and Benny
kicked the extra point...GIANTS WIN 13 TO 6: At New
York the Giants triumphed, 13 to 6. The home team
scored in the second period when Badgro caught a 
pass and Friedman got another later in the game, 
adding the extra point. Lewellen got the Green Bay 
touchdown. The Packers grabbed two victories from the
Giants in 1931. Appearing the City stadium the national
champs walloped the visitors, 27 to 7, Lewellen getting
a pair of touchdowns and others going to Engelmann
and Blood. Dunn kicked three extra points. For New
York, Flaherty scored a touchdown and Moran kicked
the point. It was Hank Bruder on the loose at New York,
his stellar work giving Green Bay a 14 to 10 victory.
Blood scored one touchdown for the Packers, Bruder
got another and Dunn kicked the extra points. Hap
Moran scored a touchdown, an extra point and a field
goal for New York. In 1932 the rivals divided again. The
Packers won out at City stadium, 13 to 0, McCrary and
Bruder getting touchdowns, and O'Boyle kicking an
extra point. At New York the Giants triumphed 6 to 0
when McBride passed to Flaherty for a touchdown...
TAKE TWO GAMES: It was all New York last season.
The Giants won a sloppy game at Milwaukee, 10 to 7,
on the strength of Burnett's touchdown, Newman's extra
point and Strong's field goal. Johnny Blood scored a late
touchdown for Green Bay on a forward pass, and Bob
Monnett kicked the goal. The game was played before
13,000 at Borchert field. In Gotham, the Bays were
soundly drubbed, 17 to 7. Burnett and Badgro got Giant touchdowns, while Gantenbein scored for the Packers. Strong kicked two extra points and a field goal. Individual scoring of the Green Bay-New York series is highly interesting.
SEPT 27 (Columbus, OH) - The Pittsburgh Pirates have
started out a record making pace in the race for ground
gaining honors among the NFL clubs. The Pirates in 
two games have gained 570 yards, with the Green Bay
Packers their closest rivals with 492 yards. Green Bay
is setting an equally astonishing pace in forward 
passing with an average of 60 percent successful, by
completing 15 in 25 tosses in two games.
SEPT 27 (Green Bay) - One of the most modern
coaches will be brought here for exhibition tomorrow by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific (Milwaukee Road), it was announced today by E.D. Crim, passenger and ticket agent. The coach, which will give the general fare passenger most of the comforts of the parlor car rider, will take the Green Bay Packers to Milwaukee Saturday morning for their football game with the New York Giants Sunday. Among the outstanding features which are new are the nine square feet of floor space per passenger - one-third more room than there is in conventional coaches, double seats, deeply upholstered, wider and of a new revolving type that will permit the passenger to face the windows at the angles he chooses; improved, modern men's and women's lounges; wide vision windows,  diffused lights, electric water cooler, larger, more accessible luggage racks, and thermostatically
controlled, forced ventilation with filtered air completely
renewed through the car every five minutes. The car will
be parked on the sleeper track opposite the lawn at the
Milwaukee Road station tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock.
A porter will be in attendance and will explain any of the
features to the visitors. Anyone will be permitted to 
make an inspection. Officials in the Green Bay office
hope to have at least one of the cars available soon for
trains number 9 and 2, the former leaving Chicago at 
5:05 p.m., and arriving in Green Bay at 10:20 p.m. and
the latter leaving Green Bay at 1:35 a.m., and arriving in
Chicago at 7:45 a.m.
SEPT 28 (Milwaukee) - If ever a team wanted to avenge
itself, it's the Green Bay Packers of today. It was just a
year ago the Packers, preceded by a ton of ballyhoo,
invaded Milwaukee for the first National league game
they ever played here and in a dismal showing lost to
the New York Giants. Yet it wasn't that they lost but it
was the way they lost. They looked bad and, worse,
they knew it. For a year now they've had to stand a lot
of kidding about that game and it hasn't sat well. In fact,
it has hurt. But Sunday they'll get another chance. They
are coming down to meet the Giants again in a game at
State Fair park, and if ever a club was determined to set
the fans straight, the Packers are. It will be the Bays'
third straight in this year's race. They won their first
game from the Philadelphia Eagles, 16 to 6, and lost
the second last Sunday to the Bears, 24 to 10. Aside
from wanting to avenge themselves against the team
that made them look bad last year, they also have their
contender's role in this year's race to maintain. Another
licking at this stage of the going and they will have an
almost hopeless uphill pull the rest of the way. They
almost have to win. The same, in a way, applies to the
Giants. They, took, lost their first game of the season to
Detroit last Sunday and if they hope to return home in
any kind of position at all they can hardly afford to lose
again. Both teams took spirited workouts in the brisk
weather Thursday, the Giants at Borchert Field, where
they have worked out daily since arriving in Milwaukee
Tuesday, and the Packers at Green Bay. The Bays will
take one more workout in Green Bay Friday and leave
for Milwaukee Saturday morning. They will work out at
State Fair park Saturday afternoon. The Giants will work
out at the ball park Friday and Saturday. Tickets are
continuing to go fast and prospects now are for a crowd
of 15,000. Because of the ideal seating arrangement at
State Fair park, however, choice seats still remain.
SEPTEMBER 28 (Green Bay) - Their first appearance
of the 1934 season upon a foreign gridiron will send the
Green Bay Packers to Milwaukee this weekend, and 
the squad will ride in class. The Milwaukee Road, over
which the team will travel on its way to the New York 
Giants game, has completed arrangements for an
exhibition of one of their new air-conditioned coaches,
and the Packers will board this vehicle at 7 o'clock
Saturday morning, Milwaukee bound...PRACTICE
SATURDAY P.M.: The squad will reach Milwaukee at
9:50 o'clock Saturday morning, and will be hustled
immediately to the Schroeder hotel, which will be its
headquarters for the weekend. Coach E.L. Lambeau will
conduct an afternoon practice where final preparations
will be made for the National league battle with New 
York Sunday afternoon at the State fair park. The team
appears to be in good shape despite last Sunday's 
fierce contest with the Chicago Bears, and Lambeau
expects the players to turn in a great game. They have
snapped through long hours of practice with plenty of
snap. Apparently a surprising large crowd will be on 
hand to witness the annual struggle, upon the outcome
of which depend very largely the championship hopes of
both teams. Officials will be Bobby Cahn, Chicago,
referee; Gordon McNutt, Chicago, head linesman; and
Duncan Anna, Chicago, field judge...GIANTS IN
MILWAUKEE: The Giants already are quartered in 
Milwaukee and have been holding daily drills at Borchert
field, where they met the Packers last season. Coach
Steve Owen has expressed several times his conviction that the Giants will be able to "put away" the Bays and gain their first National league victory of the season. Gates at the West Allis park will open at 12:30 o'clock, and indications are that a good crowd will be on hand before game time. Persons in Milwaukee who are not possessed of seats may obtain tickets at the Milwaukee Journal service bureau, or the Packer branch ticket office at the Schroeder hotel. The kickoff has been set at the usual time, 2 o'clock.
SEPT 28 (Milwaukee) - The New York football Giants, eastern champions of the NFL, is a younger team this fall than in 1933. The Giants will average only slightly over 25 years of age with not a single player over the thirty-year old mark. There is a close race for being the baby of the squad with three players only 22: Bob Bellinger of Gonzaga, guard; Ed Danowski of Fordham, back; and John Del Isola of Fordham, a center. Among the veterans, Bill Owen and Ray Flaherty, are both just past the 30-year mark, and both will be starting their ninth season of professional football. Flaherty, however, took time out in 1930 to coach the Gonzaga university team. Red Badgro, star end from Southern California, is another veteran nearing the 30-year mark but so far as showing any signs of it, he had his best season in 1933 and was chosen an all-league end in the poll of National league coaches.
SEPT 28 (Columbus, OH) - With the National league season less than a month old, Bob Monnett of Green Bay holds the scoring leadership by a one-point margin over Swede Hanson of the Philadelphia Eagles. By grabbing two touchdowns and an extra point against Pittsburgh last night, Hanson advanced to second place in the scoring list. Bronko Nagurski of the Chicago Bears is in third place with 12 points gleaned against the Packers. The leading extra point booter thus far is Jack Manders, who picked up three such markers in one game in Green Bay last Sunday. Eight players are tied for third place with one touchdown apiece, the group including Buckets Goldenberg of the Packers.
SEPT 28 (Green Bay) - Bunk Harris, who in the days of old, held down a halfback's job on the Duluth squad, is again drawing some officiating assignments from President Joe F. Carr. Harris is playgrounds director in the Gopher community...Despite the fact that Detroit is suffering from an acute attack of baseballitis, the Lions drew a bumper throng at the opening game. Cy Huston and his associates are confident the Motor City will be a great pro town...Lone Star Dietz, coach of the Boston club, has the pennant bee buzzing around. The Redskins have an all star aggregation in the making and, if their passers come through, Boston should have a lot to say about the championship...The Cincinnati owners are pulling every possible string to bolster their battle front. In another week or two, the clubs will have to cut down to 22 men and this should enable the Reds to grab off some good footballers...The Philadelphia Eagles defeated Fort Atkinson, Wis., in an exhibition game last Sunday by the score of 23 to 10. The Badger semi-pros battled the Quaker furiously for three frames but fell apart in the closing stanza...A blocked punt which was covered for a touchdown gave Fort Atkinson a 10 to 9 lead as the final period started but the Quakers stepped on the gas and got Bill Matesic, recruit backfielder, loose for two markers...The Chicago Bears have three more games away from home before opening at Wrigley field. Sunday, the champions are in Cincinnati on Oct. 7. Halas and Co. play in Brooklyn while on Oct. 10 a night game is booked in Pittsburgh...Roy (Father) Lumpkin, once the pride of Georgia Tech, made himself solid with the fans of Detroit when he intercepted a New York pass in the final minute of play and scampered down the field 65 yards for a six-point marker...Doug Russell, who earned his gridiron spurs at Kansas State, gave the spectators at Dayton a thrill when, playing halfback for the Chicago Cards, he took the opening kickoff and dashed 102 yards for a score against Cincy...There should be plenty of action in Sunday's game at Detroit between the Chicago Cardinals and Lions. Both elevens have a slick working offense and the rival front wall are plugged up with all star linemen...The Brooklyn management is counting on a capacity house this weekend for the opening game at home against Boston. The Dodgers have looked fairly well in their preliminary contests but they will have to step fast to take Boston...Jack Roberts, former Georgia fullback, is developing into quite a tourist around the postgraduate league. He saw service with Boston, then moved over to Philadelphia and now is drawing his paycheck from the Pittsburgh club...Fred Sington, one of the greatest tackles ever produced at Alabama, has signed a Brooklyn contract. The big forward has recently completed a successful season of baseball in Albany and will join Washington next spring...Doug Wyckoff, who has played a lot of football in his day, has been showing lots of class with Boston. Wyckoff has long been a triple-threat artist and Coach Dietz is using the veteran as a pivot in his forward pass attack...For some unknown reason Nag Cavosie refused to play with Cincinnati and he was released to Louisville of the American loop. In a recent game, Cavosie was sent in as a pinch kicker and his dropkick beat the Reds in the last minute.
(GREEN BAY) - If the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears could play a football game of three periods, the Packers might have a chance to win. If you don't believe it, look back into the records of games between these old rivals in recent years. Or, better yet, study the results of yesterday's headache for Green Bay at the City stadium. At the end of three periods the score read, 10 to 10. At the end of the game, it was Chicago 24, Green Bay 10. A record crowd of 13,500 saw the battle. For three quarters it was one of the greatest football game seen in Green Bay in years. The Packers fought the Bears on even terms at every step. Both smashed the line, ran the ends and played great defensive football. Both scored a field goal, then both scored a touchdown. Trill after thrill enlivened the battle. But then came the fourth period and with it trouble - plenty of it - for Green Bay. The defeat can't be blamed entirely on poor football on the part of the Packers in that final period. True, the Bears outsmarted the Bays on enough occasions in the waning minutes of the battle to cross the goal line twice, but it wasn't so much weakness on the part of the Packers as it was strength of the Bears.
There wasn't an apparent weakness in the Bear team
that won. It was a team that played every bit as good 
football as the championship eleven of last year. Vets
were as impressive as ever and new men, such as
Beattie Feathers, from Tennessee, and Ed Kawal, from
Illinois, demonstrated convincingly they belong. And as
to this old Packer nemesis - Bill Hewitt - well the only
think you could say about him is that he is even greater
than he was last year, if that's possible. And while we're
talking about those outstanding Bears, we can't pass up
that Big Bronko Nagurski. He IS a honey. Green Bay
men played hard and fought like Trojans but they could
not match the Bears fourth period drive. Plays clicked 
on occasions for good gains, but more often, alert,
hard charging Bear linemen broke them up. On defense,
the Packers also looked good in spots, poor on other
occasions when they couldn't stand up to the charges
of Feathers and Nagurski and the men who cleared the
way for them. Defensively against passes, the Packers
looked weak, particularly on a touchdown play in the
third period when they were caught flatfooted. The
standouts for the Packers were Mike Michalske, as 
rugged and alert a guard as there is in the country, and
Buckets Goldenberg, the little, powerful fullback from
Wisconsin. Mike was all over the field again, pulling 
down the ball carrier and paving the way for his men.
Buckets hit and hit hard, smashed with everything he
had until he had to retire late in the game, nearly punch-
drunk from a terrific bearing taken in the course of his
plunges. Roger Grove did some fine work, and so did
Bob Monnett and Clark Hinkle on some plays, but they
seldom could get loose through the alert Bear line.
You couldn't ask for a better game than what was
offered through the first three periods. First the Bears
scored, then the Packers tied it up. Then the Bears 
scored again, this time a touchdown, but a second time
the Packers knotted the count. Then the fourth period
and with a pair of Bear touchdowns and kicks for the
extra points to bring the victory. The Packers opened 
with a belated forward passing attack after they were
trailing by 14 points late in the game, and clicked on
several tosses, but before they could cross the line the
contest ended. Had the Packers opened with forward
passes earlier - there were few tossed in the early 
stages by either team - it might have been a different
story. As it was the only thing the late tosses proved
was that they could click when they meant little. A few
good breaks came the Bears' way soon after the start 
of the game. Punting with the wind, Feathers got off
some good boots and then dropped one that was
downed on the Packer two yard line. It put the Bays in
a hole that they couldn't quite come out of until the
Bears had run up three points. They punted out of the
coffin corner safely but the Bears had the ball in Packer
territory after it and went to town. Ronzani passed to
Feathers for a 25 yard gain to the 21 yard line. Three
plays failed of a first down but, on the fourth down, Jack
Manders came into the game and with Brumbaugh
holding the ball on the 32 yard line, kicked the goal for
three points.
Goldenberg intercepted a Bear pass in midfield shortly
after the start of the second period and it started a 
march for Green Bay. Goldenberg returned 10 yards
after picking the ball out of the air and went to the 36
yard mark. Grove then broke loose around left end, cut
back and raced to the 12 yard mark behind some fine
blocking by Bob Jones. Three plays failed to fain and on
the fourth down, Grove dropped back, held the ball and
Monnett kicked for a field goal from the 16 yard line to 
tie the score. Shortly after the start of the third period
Nagurski and Feathers started to make trouble. After
taking the ball on their own 44 on a punt they advanced
to the 37 yard line on a series of plunges. Nagurski 
broke loose around left end, shook off a couple of mwn
and started to race down the field. He was almost clear
but Michalske caught him from behind on the Bay
seven yard mark. On the first play Nagurski dropped
back and passed to Hewitt for a touchdown, Herber,
who was assigned to cover him, being caught flat-footed
on the play. Manders came in again and and again he
calmly kicked for the extra point to give the Bears the
After a punt had been brought back to the Chicago 17 yard line by the Bears, Ronzani picked up nine yards on two thrusts at the line. A bad pass from center sailed far over Ronzani's head on the next play and Claude Perry recovered for Green Bay on the Chicago 12 yard mark. Hinkle entered the game and slammed over left tackle for seven yards. Monnett added three at right end for a first down on the two yard mark. Hinkle and Monnett couldn't make the grade for a touchdown. The Packers took time out and after the rest executed one of the finest plays of the game. Laws started to call signals. The backfield swung in unison as if to shift. Instead of shifting the backs merely swayed and the ball was passed to Goldenberg. It caught the Bears off their guard and the stocky fullback rammed right guard for four yards and a touchdown. Monnett kicked for the extra point and the score was tied again.
The Packers didn't seem to have the old zip after the start of the fourth quarter. After an exchange of punts the Bears got the ball in midfield. Feathers then tossed a pass to Wayland Becker for 17 yards and it was a first down on the Bay 20 yard mark. Ronzani passed to Feathers, another good gain this time for 15 yards. Nagurski took the ball, cracked center for five yards. He hit it again, this time for a first down on the Bay four yard mark. Three more times the big Nag hit the line, but every time the Bays stopped him. Then he took it again, driving like a steam engine over right tackle for a touchdown. Again Manders came in, kicked from placement and the Bears had another extra point. A few moments later the Bears scored again, and again it was Nagurski in the driver's seat. Feathers got through for an excellent return of a punt, going 30 yards to the Packer 34 yard mark before he was nailed. On the first play Nagurski took the ball on a delayed cutback. He slid between the end and tackle on the right end and ran 36 yards for a touchdown, outstepping the Bay secondary to score. Manders again kicked from placement and it was Chicago 24, Green Bay 10. Several passes clicked after that and the Packers went from their own 20 to the Bears 20 but the game ended before they could cross the line.

Sunday September 23rd 1934 (at Green Bay)
SEPT 29 (Green Bay) - Football teams of Green Bay
and New York, representing the smallest and largest
cities of the NFL, will have it out at the State Fair park 
in Milwaukee tomorrow afternoon in a football game that
has every aspect of being a "natural". Both teams are
smarting under defeats handed them last Sunday in
National league competition - the Packers at the hands
of the Bears and the Giants taking it on the chin from
the new Detroit club, formerly Portsmouth. There are
many old scores to settle by these rivals. In a series
that dates back several years the Packers have a slight
​edge, but fresh in their minds is the memory of two
beatings suffered at the hands of the New Yorkers last
year...LOST TWO GAMES: It was just a year ago that
the Bays played their first game in Milwaukee, meeting
the Giants. They looked ragged and played poor football
in that encounter being beaten by a 10 to 7 count. 
When they met the Giants in the East later in the year
they took another beating. They will be out to avenge
both those setbacks and prove to Wisconsin fans that
they can play a lot better football than the games of last
year would indicate. The Packers met a tartar in their
battle with the Bears last Sunday but it has not dimmed
their enthusiasm for the battle or their hopes of a NFL
title. Practice sessions this week have been more
spirited and smoother than any before this year. Men
have snapped through assignments with speed and
precision. Timing has improved and the team appears
to be in perfect shape. Players who sustained minor
injuries in the tilt with the Bears have all recovered.
Coach E.L. Lambeau has not announced his starting
lineup or indicated who will get most of the work. 
Indications are, however, that he will employ plenty of
open football with passes playing an important part. 
Pass defense also has been stressed this week to 
to improve this department. The Packers were weak on
pass defense last week, and it led to two Bear scores
that beat them...GOOD PASSING GAME: Against the
Giants, the Packers will have to be more alert than ever
to stop an overhead attack as the Easterners boast one
of the finest passing games in the country. With Harry
Newman, former Michigan star, and Ed Danowski, from
Fordham, available, the Giants have two of the best 
tossers in the country. The Giants also have a capable
set of ball carriers and blockers available to give the 
Bays plenty of trouble with running plays. Bo Molenda,
former Packer fullback, Ken Strong, Dale Burnett,
Danowski and Richards are as good as they come at
cracking the line. In addition there are Newman, Norby,
Stafford, Clancy and Krause for work in the backline. All
are capable performers. Coach Lambeau has shifted two
of his linemen to add weight on defense, and Sunday's
game probably will see these men in the new positions.
Lon Evans, veteran guard, has been working out at
tackle, so that he can be used alongside of Michalske,
who has been playing a great game this year. Lon
formerly alternated with Mike at left guard. Champ
Seibold, giant Oshkosh tackle, has been converted into
a guard, working at both the left and right sides of the
line. He weighs 235 pounds, is quite fast, and should be
dangerous running interference after he gets a little
experience at the work...ONE GIANT ILL: Only one
Giants is on the sick list. He is Glen Campbell, veteran
end, who submitted to an operation this week. The New
Yorkers boast a powerful line with such veterans as
Badgro, Frankian and Flaherty at ends, Grant, Morgan,
Boyl, Irvin and Owen, tackles, Hein and Isola, center,
and Reese, Cannella, Jones, Bellinger and Gibson,
guards. The game will start at 2 o'clock, and a crowd of
13,000 or more is expected. Green Bay will send down 
a delegation of some 3,000 while others from all parts
of the state also are expected to be there. The Blatz
Post American Legion, national Legion champions, will play at the game. The band recently returned from a trip to Europe. Tickets for the game will be on sale at the Journal building until 11 a.m., and after that time at the gate.
SEPT 29 (Columbus, OH) - The Brooklyn Dodgers, only team that has not seen action in the NFL race for 1934, makes its seasonal debut against the Boston Redskins in Brooklyn Sunday. This contest is one of four major league gridiron struggles slated for decision. Cincinnati opens its home season at Crosley Field with the Chicago Bears, world champions. The Chicago Cardinals and Detroit Lions clash in Detroit to decide which will remain among the unbeaten teams of the season. Both won auspiciously a week ago in their first game. The fourth contest of the day finds the New York Giants, Eastern champions for 1933, opposing the Green Bay Packers in Milwaukee. Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, who played Wednesday night, are inactive. The Redskins, victors over the Pirates, in their only start, are now equal favorites with the Giants in the Eastern race. Brooklyn in its opening game will be called upon to stop one of the hardest running attacks of the circuit with Cliff Battles, all-league back, as chief gainer. A year ago the Dodgers stopped the Redskins' offense cold and Captain John McEwen, Brooklyn coach, hopes to repeat the stunt in the opening game today. The Detroit battle is expected to provide the favorite in the struggle to check the Chicago Bears in their efforts to win their their third straight world crown.
SEPTEMBER 29 (Milwaukee) - With a victory and a defeat on the books for the first two National Professional Football league starts, the Green Bay Packers Sunday will abandon their home stadium to come here for a charity match against the powerful New York Giants. Proceeds of the game, which will be played in the new football stadium at State Fair park, will contribute to a Christmas Fund sponsored annually by the Journal. Champions of the eastern division of the league last season, the Giants this year boast a formidable array of stars, the brightest of whom is Harry Newman, Michigan's great triple threat quarterback, who will line up at that position against the Bays tomorrow. The week of practice under Coach Curly Lambeau has polished off some of the Bays' rough edges and the team is pointing for Newman, Strong, Stafford and Molenda, a former Packer, who now is cutting capers in a backfield feared by every club in the pro wheel. The game will start at 2 p.m., and while Packer officials look toward a sellout, they pointed out several thousand good seats still were on the racks of the latecomers.
SEPTEMBER 30 (Milwaukee) - Green Bay's Packers, once haughty rulers of the grid universe, come back to town today after an absence of one year and will attempt to put pro football on a sound basis here when they meet the New York Giants on the new State Fair park gridiron. The two clubs battled here at Borchert field last year, the Giants winning, 10 to 7, in a game that was anything but high class and one that gave pro football a decided setback. Over 13,000 fans were on hand and many scoffers walked away disappointed, vowing that the college game still held their affection. Another such showing will kill pro football here, but if the Packers and Giants play in the manner they are capable of today pro football will be made and Milwaukee will surely have at least four home league games next year - either with the Packers acting as the home club, or by an out and out Milwaukee team. Last year failure of a key man to follow the usual training rules the night prior to the game resulted in a ragged display of amateurish ball. No one was more disappointed over the showing than the Bay players and the club officials - for it is no secret that the club officials would like to establish the game here and book part of their league home games in this port of call. A year ago much was expected of the Bays - but they faltered. This year, after the 24 to 10 lacing handed them by the Bears, not so much is expected and we'll probably see a fine team and a great game. The Bear defeat should not be taken too seriously at this time, however, although the Bays must be improved if they hope to beat the Giants. Many of the Bays were playing their first big league game in the pro circuit. Some slipped up at inopportune moments - as did some of the vets.
