GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(MILWAUKEE) - Milwaukee scoffers have become boosters today of Green Bay's Packers - for they have seen the light. It was a light that shone over State Fair park here Sunday afternoon, illuminating the Packers in a brilliant 20 to 6 victory over the New York Giants. Playing before approximately 11,000 fans, the Packers turned on the heat to smother the eastern champions of 1933 in as neat an exhibition as you 
would care to see. They outsmarted and outplayed the Giants at nearly every stage of the game. Only in one department did the New Yorkers excel, that in passing, but it brought little damage. With the exception of two passes, no toss gained more than eight yards.
VINDICATE THEMSELVES
A year ago the Packers played in Milwaukee for the first time with the Giants as their opponents. It was a
miserable exhibition on the part of Green Bay. Sunday the Packers gained vindication in no uncertain manner, playing like champions at every stage. The Packer generalship was good to watch: the fight reminiscent of Green Bay teams of old that swept to three consecutive National league titles. Roger Grove, turning in his best game since joining the team four years ago, maneuvered his charges into positions of advantage time after time, calling for quick kicks that caught the Giants off balance and put them into holes, and doing some excellent ball carrying. On defense the Packer line was a stone wall. True, the Giant forwards weren't as strong as the Chicago Bears, but they were plenty tough and they could open holes for backs for only 32 yards.
A VALIANT DEFENSE
Standing out in a valiant defense were Mike Michalske,
Claude Perry and Milt Gantenbein smacking down ball
carriers. Buckets Goldenberg also was in there all the
time, plugging holes and smothering Giant plays with
enough force to stop a tractor. And there was Nate
Barrager, rapidly regaining the form that made him the
standout center of the league a few years ago, Bob
Jones, Ad Schwammel and all the rest, doing their bit
to help Green Bay's cause. In an analysis, it was the
quick kicks of Clark Hinkle and Hank Bruder, alertness
of Gantenbein and Goldenberg in recovering fumbles,
good returns of punts by Bob Monnett and the quick
smothering of Giant safety men who received punts that
kept the play mostly in New York territory. Only on two
occasions were the Giants able to threaten. They got
into Packer territory at the outset by virtue of a pair of
passes, only to be checked and lose the ball. Again in
the fourth quarter passes clicked and they got into
Green Bay's half of the field, this time completing the
advance for a touchdown on a play that should have 
been stopped behind the line of scrimmage. It marked
the only slip of the day on the part of the Bays, and can
easily be excused in the light of their accomplishments.
SCORE ON PLACEMENT
The Packers scored in the second period with a
placement from the 17-yard line, with Monnett doing the
booting. They counted another field goal in the third
period when Monnett delivered again this time from the
37-yard mark. A few minutes later Roger Grove swept
over for a touchdown and late in the game Buckets
Goldenberg smacked through a hole opened by Mike
Michalske and Perry for the second touchdown. After
both touchdowns Monnett kicked for the extra points,
keeping his percentage perfect for the year. The first 
half was a nip and tuck battle with neither side having
an edge. The Bays repulsed everything thrown at them
by the Giants in these periods and the invaders were
able to put together only three first downs on passes.
In the second half the Bays really got underway. Plays
worked smoothly, ball carriers finding holes for good
gains while the Giants were helpless. It was not until
after the Packers had run the score to 13 to 0 that the
New Yorkers were able to count. After that the Packers
turned on the steam and scored again and there wasn't
a doubt in the mind of even the most critical fans that
the Packers had plenty of what it takes. New York
threatened early in the first period after a pass from
Newman to Flaherty was good for a first down on the
Packers' 41 yard mark. Here the Bays braced, however,
and on the fourth down Owen tried a placekick from the
50 yard mark that fell short of the goal. The Packers
punted out and after the Giants were held they kicked
back, Monnett getting loose for a great return to the
New York 49. The Bays pushed the ball up to the 40 
and Hinkle tried a placement from that point, but it went
out of bounds on the 15 yard mark.
HEIN RECOVERS FUMBLE
A Packer fumble, recovered by Hein, gave the Giants
the ball on their own 48 yard mark a few moments later
at the start of the second quarter but they couldn't
advance and had to kick. Hinkle pulled a surprise kick
on the Giants, the ball going to the 29 yard mark and
rolling out of bounds. The Giants fumbled at this point
and Goldenberg recovered for the Packers. A pair of line
smashes made it a first down on the 11 yard mark and
when the Giants braced, Monnett dropped back and 
with Grove holding the ball, kicked from placement.
Later in the period, Hinkle tried another placement from
midfield but it was wide of the posts. The ball was on 
the Giant three yard line with the Giants in possession
as the half ended. Shortly after the start of the third
period, Gantenbein recovered a fumble by Krause on 
the Giant 25 yard mark. The Packers were pushed back
to the 28 and on fourth down Monnett dropped back to 
the 37 and, with Grove again holding, placekicked from
that point to give the Packers a 6 to 0 lead. The Bays
went to work after that score and soon had added a
touchdown to the total. Starting from midfield, Grove
and Bruder drove over the tackles for a first down on the
29 yard mark. Monnett found a gaping hole on a 
cutback and smashed ahead seven yards. Then it was
Grove again, slipping off his left tackle, sliding out of the
arms of outstretched tacklers, reversing his field and
racing 22 yards to score. Monnett kicked for the extra
point, and it was 13 to 0
TOSSES LONG PASS
In the fourth period, Newman tossed a long pass to Badgro deep in his own territory. The powerful end raced 30 yards down the field and was almost clear for a touchdown, but he had Monnett to reckon with. Bob worked toward Badgro as he neared the Packer 40 yard line. Then with a mighty heave he smashed into Badgro, knocking him fully six feet out of bounds. A pair of line smashes picked up eight yards. Newman then faded back and tossed a flat pass to Richards. The Giant halfback was apparently cornered by a pair of Packer backs but by some good running he slid to his left and raced 32 yards for a touchdown. The pass from center was bad when Bo Molenda tried to get off a kick for the extra point, so he tried to pass to Badgro, but the end missed the ball. The score gave the Bays a scare but they quickly dispelled it, when Hinkle got off a quick kick that was downed on the New York four yard line by Peterson. The Giants punted out and Monnett raced back to the 24 yard line, shaking off three tacklers. Hinkle and Goldenberg cracked the line, and it was a first down on the nine-yard stripe. Monnett cracked through for four yards but then lost three. Laws cracked left tackle to put it on the two yard line, and Goldenberg went over. Monnett kicked for the extra point.

NEWS AND NOTES
BULLETIN
OCT 2 (Green Bay) - Two releases were announced by Coach E.L. Lambeau of the Green Bay Packers this afternoon. The squad had to be cut after the third league game of the year, so the coach released Harry Wunsch, former Notre Dame guard, and Charles Casper, Texas Christian quarterback. Only 22 men are permitted to be carried by each club after their third league game each season.
SIDELIGHTS
OCT 2 (Green Bay) - Between 2,500 and 3,000 Green Bay fans attended the Packer-Giant game Sunday, and all of them came away satisfied - they had gotten their money's worth. The Packer victory was a pleasant surprise to many of them as they had figured the Green Bay "pros" were going to "take it on the chin" again...The new football field at State Fair park is ideal, much more satisfactory than Borchert field. The spectators have a good view of the play at all times and they are not so far away from the gridiron either, particularly those in the east stands. The turf, which was put down only recently, stood up fairly well. There were a few soft spots, but these were patched up during the intermission at the half by a crew...Mike Michalske was a busy man in the first quarter. He seemed to be the only Packer linemen hat could hold onto a Giant ball carrier once he got his hands on him. Most of the Packer tackling in the first quarter was ragged and in several instances where ball carriers should have been thrown for losses they eluded the tackler and made substantial gains. In the last half, however, the Packers were more deadly in their tackling and threw many of the New York ball carriers for losses...Perry and Michalske opened up some nice holes in the Giants' forward wall and a number of good gains were made by the Packer ball carrier there, particularly in that last touchdown march. Hinkle and Laws marched right down the field through these holes and Buckets slid over for the touchdown through the same hole...Dick Stahlman, now a Chicago policeman, but a former tackle on the Packers, was a spectator at Sunday's game. He drove up from Chicago and renewed acquaintances with the Packer players. Red Dunn, another Packer player of yesteryear, was also an interested spectator. Before the game Dunn predicted the Packers would win by a 13 to 10 score and he was as tickled as anybody when the Bays came through with a victory...Buckets Goldenberg was a busy man. He made many tackles, did some excellent blocking and came through in a pinch with a touchdown plunge from the 2-yard line. Buckets is very popular with the Milwaukee fans and got a big ovation when he came off the field near the end of the game. Roger Grove, who played a splendid game, also got a big cheer from the fans when Laws relieved him, near the end of the fourth quarter...Milwaukee sports writers in the press box all agreed that the Packers had redeemed themselves for the ragged showing against the Giants last year and predicted that the next two Milwaukee games would draw capacity crowds. The Packers play the Chicago Bears there on the night of Oct. 17 and the Chicago Cardinals, Sunday, Nov. 18...The 22-yard run of Roger Grove's for the first Packer touchdown was a "beaut". He cut back over the line, reversed his field and ran to the goal line without a hand being laid on him. He had some nice blocking from his teammates which helped considerably. Once Grove gets out in the open he's a hard man to bring down, as he's not only fast, but shifty and hard to knock off his feet...Kink Richards made a fine 32-yard run after receiving a lateral from Newman and scored the Giants' only touchdown. Richards caught the ball near the west sidelines, dodged several Packers, then reversed the field and raced over the goal line. He was tackled several times, but no Packer was able to hand onto him. It looked for a second as if he would be stopped in his tracks when he caught the lateral, but he did some nice footwork and got out of the trap...Bo Molenda, former Packer fullback, saw plenty of action, playing the entire game at fullback for the Giants. Bo did some great work, plugging holes. On offense he carried the ball only once, for a one-yard gain...Bob Monnett and Mike Michalske played the entire game for Green Bay. Buckets Goldenberg played all except 34 seconds at the end. Roger Grove got plenty of action until about four minutes before the end and Barrager played until about seven minutes before the end...Richards was by far the outstanding back on the New York squad. Ken Strong saw little service. He was one of the best in the league a few years ago...The Milwaukee Drum corps put on a snappy exhibition between halves. The Legion men recently returned from a trip to Europe...The Packers were penalized 15 yards for roughing the kicker on one occasion. Milt Gantenbein charged into Richards, partially blocking the kick and knocking the kicker to the ground. It seemed perfectly legal, but Referee Cahn ruled to the contrary.
DETROIT'S STRONG CLUB NEXT FOE OF GREEN BAY PACKERS
OCT 2 (Green Bay) - Dutch Clark, Father Lumpkin, Glenn Presnell and the rest of the boys will be masquerading in uniforms of the Detroit Lions at City
stadium next Sunday, but to the Green Bay Packers 
and the fans who stand behind them the visitors will be
just the same old hard-fighting Portsmouth Spartans. 
They will be seeking their third National league victory.
The Spartans were transplanted bodily to Detroit this
season, and thus far are undefeated in their two games
to date. The team generally is the same as the one 
which represented Portsmouth last season, with the
formidable return of Dutch Clark at quarterback, leading
scorer of the National league in 1932...HAVE STAR
KICKER: The Lions have another newcomer of great
promise in Frank Christensen, 195-pound Utah fullback,
who is hailed as the greatest punter since Verne 
Lewellen. Christensen's mighty boots this season have
played an important role in Detroit's two victories, and 
he is certain to be turned loose against the Packers.
Two poisonous gentlemen who have caused the Bays 
no end of grief in past seasons are Earl (Dutch) Clark
and Glenn Presnell, league scoring leaders in 1932 and
1933, respectively. Presnell graduated from Nebraska,
where he was an all-American halfback, in 1927. He is
considered one of the best placekickers in the league,
and rates with Newman as a passer and open field
runner...CLARK OUTSTANDING STAR: Clark is back in
the fold after a year's absence during which he coached
at Colorado State. He is a great drop kicker and a
deadly punter, besides being unsurpassed at field
generalship. Another pair of Portsmouth veterans the
Packers will see in action Sunday are Le Roy (Ace)
Gutowsky and Roy (Father) Lumpkin, a tough pair of
lads who did their undergraduate gridiron work for
Oklahoma and Georgia Tech, respectively. Lumpkin is
the original "Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech" and 
has earned the eternal respect of Packer fans for his
previous work against the Bays. Two new Detroit backs
will bear watching, according to National league sports
followers. They are Bill McWilliams, Iowa, and Robert
Rowe, Colgate. McWilliams played at Jordan college,
Menominee, Mich., three years ago. During the past
baseball season he has been regular third baseman for
St. Paul of the American Association. Rowe played on
Colgate's unbeaten, untied and unscored team of 1932,
and is starting his first year in the pro game...FOUR
GOOD ENDS: The Lions are well fortified at the end
positions, with Bill McKalip, Oregon State; Buster
Mitchell, Davis-Elkins; Harry Ebding, St. Mary's; and
John Schneller, Wisconsin, all ready for duty. McKalip
received all-American mention in 1929 and 1930, and
was an all-National league selection in 1931 and 1932.
He is rated as one of the best pass receivers in the
league. Irish Ebding, starting his fourth season in the 
pro game, is a member of Coach Potsy Clark's board of
​strategy, often used to scout rival teams. Schneller is a
Neenah, Wis., product who graduated from Wisconsin.
He is well known to Green Bay fans. Mitchell started
playing pro football in 1931, and is one of the most 
popular men on the Lions' roster...BERNARD GREAT
CENTER: Although the veteran Clare Randolph is 
capable of handling the assignments to a nicety, 
interest in the center position this season is centering
about the sensational ex-Michigan star, Chuck Bernard.
He was all-America center on every team in the country
last fall, and made but one bad pass in three seasons
of play at Ann Arbor. Randolph, an Indiana product,
graduated from Notre Dame, and has been playing pro
football for three years. He practices law at Elkhart, Ind.
during the off-season. The Detroit tackles are George
E. Christensen, Oregon, captain of the squad; Jack
Johnson, Utah; Bob Emmerick, Miami of Oxford, Ohio;
Sam (Dutch) Knox, New Hampshire State, and Ray
Richards, Nebraska...ALL-AMERICA TACKLE: 
Christensen is a 240-pounder who was an all-National
league tackle in 1932 at Portsmouth, and is one of the
fastest men in the circuit. He's known as "Tarzan", but
likes to be called "Chris". Johnson is a rancher during
the off-season and is the tallest man on the Lions'
squad, measuring 6 feet 4 inches. Emerick is just
breaking into the professional game, and Knox is a 209
pound giant who shows promise in his first season with
the Lions. Richards was a teammate of Presnell at
Nebraska, has had all-America mention, and weighs 
232 pounds. He joined the Lions from the Chicago
Bears. The Lions also have good guards. They are Tom
Hupke, Alabama, Russell Lay, Michigan State, and 
Chet Diehl, Idaho, all new men, and veterans Morris
Bodenger, Tulane, and Ox Emerson, Texas. Bodenger
and Emerson are the cream of the crop. Bodie holds a
Ph.D. degree and is playing his fourth season of pro
football. Ox once was voted the most popular athlete at
Texas university, and is one of the lightest, yet most
aggressive guards in professional football. He weighs
only 185.
GREEN BAY PACKERS HAVE GOOD PASSING
RECORD IN CIRCUIT
OCT 2 (New York) - With the Pittsburgh Pirates, Green
Bay Packers and Chicago Bears showing the way, the
NFL may see a new ground gaining record set this year.
The Pirates have averaged 296 yards in three games,
the Bears 264 1/2 in two and Green Bay 240 2/3 in
three. Defensively, Detroit's Lions have the best record
with an average of 133 yards in two games against 149
for Brooklyn in one and 155 1/2 for the Chicago Cards
in two. Green Bay leads the way in passing. The 
Packers have completed more of their half of their
aerials, 23 out of 41.
INTEREST HIGH IN BAY BATTLE WITH DETROIT
OCT 3 (Green Bay) - A buildup of enthusiasm rivaling
former championship days has followed the Green Bay
Packers' victory over New York at Milwaukee last 
Sunday, and indications today are that next Saturday's
crowd at the Packer-Detroit Lions game will approach
​that of the recent Green Bay-Chicago Bears contest. 
The play of Green Bay's backfield aces, supported by a
rapidly developing line, has fired the team's backers 
with a new pennant fever, an affliction which is expected
to send thousands of fans pouring into City stadium
next Sunday to witness the bitter stand of the Detroit
Lions, nee Portsmouth Spartans...WILL GO PLACES:
Last Sunday, Green Bay very thoroughly pounded up a
highly touted New York gridiron machine, and the win
has done wonders to the Packers' morale. The team
seems to have decided suddenly that it may as well go
places in the National league race and a smart decision
over the Lions Sunday is about the most effective way 
to achieve this goal. Joe F. Carr, Columbus, Ohio, 
league president, has named the following officials for 
the Green Bay-Detroit game: referee, Bobby Cahn,
Chicago; umpire, K.N. Harris, Duluth; head linesman,
H.A. Headcamp, Chicago; and field judge, Wilfred
Smith, Chicago...FIRST APPEARANCE SINCE 1926:
This will be the first appearance of a team representing
Detroit here since 1926, when Jimmy Conzelman's
Detroit Motors accepted a 21 to 0 licking from the Bays
at City stadium. Green Bay fans recall that Gus
Sonnenberg, the wrestler, played with Detroit on that
occasion. Later in the 1926 season, the Packers played
at Detroit, winning 7 to 0. Green Bay finished the year
in fourth place, while the Motors would up in 12th place
among the 22 teams which that year were National
league members. Detroit also had a team in the league
in 1928, but was not scheduled with the Packers that
season. Large delegations of out-of-town fans are
expected at Sunday's game here, all drawn to witness
the work of different stars. Neenah perhaps will be best
represented, as John Schneller, Detroit end and former
Wisconsin lineman and back, has a large following in 
the twin cities section. Many fans also are expected
from Marinette-Menominee, as Bill McWilliams, 
backfield star, recently played with Jordan college in the
Michigan city..WILL WATCH BERNARD: There is plenty
of talk concerning the initial appearance here of Chuck
Bernard, Michigan's great center, who is expected to
prove a bulwark in the line against the Packers, 
represented by Barrager, Bultman, Butler and company,
the three B's of the center. Frank Christensen, Detroit
fullback from Utah, is being hailed as the greatest 
kicker since Verne Lewellen, and his consistent booting
will be depended upon to keep the Packers deep in 
their own territory. The Detroit lineup will feature the
leading National league scorers of 1932 and 1933, 
respectively, in Dutch Clark and Glenn Presnell, a pair
of poisonous backs. Presnell hasn't been getting much
action this season, but he is a probable starter against
the Packers.
HANSON SETTING PACE
OCT 3 (New York) - Swede Hanson of Philadelphia, 
Warren Heller of Pittsburgh and Beattie Feathers of the
Chicago Bears are locked in a close race for the ground
gaining leadership of the NFL. Hanson has gained 188
yards, two more than Heller, and seven more than 
Feathers, the old Tennessee flash. Feathers tops the
pass receivers with a gain of 56 yards. Arnold Herber of
Green Bay leads the throwers with nine completions in
18 attempts. Bob Monnett of Green Bay and Michigan
State leads in field goals with four and in total points
with 28.
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORT
OCT 3 (Green Bay) - Observations at random...When
Bob Monnett scored eight points against New York on
Sunday, he stepped into seventh place in the Bay all-
time scoring list, with 62 points counted in two seasons.
The only Packers in front of him are Lewellen, Blood
Lambeau, Dilweg, McCrary and Molenda. He now trails
Molenda by two points and McCrary by 10. If he keeps
his good work he will pass both before two weeks have
passed. Monnett hasn't missed a try for an extra point,
or a field goal this year. Who said Jack Manders is in a
class by himself? Bob's record is even better than that 
of the Chicago star this year...Johnny Blood has been
removed from a hospital in Pittsburgh and is reported to
be ready to play for Pittsburgh for the first time in the
game with the New York Giants tonight. Johnny, who 
did great things on and off for Green Bay, was ill when
he reported to the eastern club and hasn't played yet.
MONNETT ACE SCORER
OCT 3 (Columbus, OH) - Bob Monnett of Green Bay
holds a nine point lead over the field in the NFL scoring
race, statistics released today reveal. Monnett has
chalked up 28 points on two touchdowns, four extra
points and four field goals. Monnett's closest rival at the
present time is Swede Hanson of Philadelphia, who has
accounted for 19 points. Right behind Hanson is Bronko
Nagurski of the Bears, with three touchdowns.
DETROIT TEAM WILL PRACTICE HERE SATURDAY
OCT 4 (Detroit) - Coach Potsy Clark and his undefeated
Detroit Lions will hit the trail for Green Bay early Friday
in order to reach the Badger community in time for a
practice session Saturday. According to Coach Clark,
the Packers are tough to beat on their home lot but he
has hopes of taking Coach Lambeau's crew into ramp 
this weekend as his team is "fit as a fiddle", and some
of the new men are beginning to fit smoothly into the
machine...PACKERS WELL SCOUTED: The Lions' pilot thinks he has the "goods" on the Green Bay offense as Clark has had the Packers scouted in every game. Joe Holsinger, a former Army player, who is a great friend of Potsy's, has turned in yards of facts and figures about the Bay eleven. Holsinger is attached to Coach Doc Spears' coaching staff at the University of Wisconsin and it wasn't much of a jump from Madison to Green Bay to look things over. Glen Presnell will probably see a lot of action against the Packers. The former Nebraska star, who led the National league in scoring last season, has been kept under wraps all fall and pointed especially for the first Packer tilt, as Coach Clark figures this is one of the games that his squad must win if the Lions are going to have anything to say about the western half title...ALL STAR BACKFIELD: With Presnell and Father Lumpkin playing the halfback positions, Dutch Clark, one of the greatest gridders that ever cleated a gridiron, at quarterback and the sensational recruit, Frank Christensen of Utah, at fullback, Detroit has a super set of ball carriers. Sunday's game at Green Bay will be the Lions' first league game away from home and President G.A. Richards, together with some of the other officials plan to fly from Detroit to Wisconsin for the game. A special plane has been engaged for the trip which will be made non-stop to Green Bay. During their sojourn in Green Bay, the Lions will headquarter at the Northland hotel. There will be 30 players, trainers and coaches in the party. No team in the National league staged a rivalry more brief and bitter than that between the Green Bay Packers and the Portsmouth Spartans - and this series will be renewed at City stadium Sunday, with the former Spartan team playing as the Detroit Lions. Some of the greatest games, and some of the most disappointing ever played by the Packers, have found their way into this series of battles. The teams have met seven times, with the Packers winning four, losing two and tying one...LEWELLEN AND LIDBERG: The Spartans were not yet National league members when the teams met
for the first time in 1929, the Packers winning easily
enough, 14 to 0. Lewellen and Lidberg got touchdowns,
and extra points were picked up by Molenda and Blood.
The Packers scored their most impressive victory over
the Spartans in 1930, copping 47 to 13 in a wild scoring
affair. Lewellen got two touchdowns, McCrary got two,
and others went to Molenda, Fitzgibbons and Dilweg.
Portsmouth's touchdowns were scored by Novotny and
McClain...PLAYED TIE GAME: The series began to 
assume a more sinister aspect later in the 1930 season
when the Packers, pennant bound, were held to a 6-all
tie by the Spartans. Early good feeling which had
dominated the early years of the series began to give way to deeper feeling, and Portsmouth loomed as one of the Packers' most formidable - and least liked - opponents. Engelmann of Green Bay and Bennett of Portsmouth did the scoring. Two bitter struggles were waged by the rivals in 1932, after a season in which they were not scheduled. The Green Bay game went to the Packers, 15 to 10, and still is regarded as one of the most sensational games ever played here. Al Rose recovered a blocked punt for an early touchdown, O'Boyle adding the extra point. The Spartans tied the score in the third period on Ebding's touchdown and Dutch Clark's kick and then Clark dropkicked a field goal to give Portsmouth a 10 to 7 lead...HINKLE RUNS FOR SCORE: Dutch gave the Packers an intentional safety to prevent a blocked punt early in the fourth period, and with but a few minutes to play, Portsmouth held a 10 to 9 advantage. The Bays opened a vicious offensive drive which wound up with a 22-yard touchdown gallop by Hinkle to win the game. Eleven iron men defeated the Packers in Portsmouth late in the season, before an insulting, jeering throng who delighted in the team's downfall. The score was 19 to 0, with Clark scoring two touchdowns and an extra point, and Presnell getting a single touchdown. Last year the rivals again split in two games. At Green Bay the Packers came out ahead in a brilliant exhibition of football, 17 to 0, on a rain drenched stadium field, before 4,000 brave fans. Bruder and Goldenberg scored touchdowns, Grove and Blood got extra points and Hinkle booted a field goal. At Portsmouth the Packers traveled at top speed, but were unable to win, losing 7 to 0 on Caddell's touchdown and Presnell's extra points kick. Stupid signal calling staved off several certain Green Bay scores.
SET GOOD RECORDS
OCT 4 (New York) - A new offensive record for the NFL
will be made this season judging by the fast pace the
Pittsburgh Pirates and Green Bay Packers are setting.
The Pirates have rolled up 888 yards in three games,
Green Bay 722 yards in a like number. Defensively the
Detroit Lions and Chicago Cardinals are proving the
toughest to crack. The Cards have yielded only 211 
yards in two games, the Lions 266 in two. The Packers
and Chicago Bears, world champions, are in a close
race for scoring honors, Green Bay with 49 points has
four more than the Bears.
SOCCER AT HALFTIME
OCT 4 (Green Bay) - Two kinds of football will be on tap
Sunday afternoon at the City stadium. Besides the NFL
league brand of pastiming, there will be a soccer exhibition staged between halves. This is something out of the ordinary and the tilt between the Green Bay-Fort Howard Kickers and the Appleton club should provide the spectators with an excellent opportunity to compare the different varieties of footballing.
PACKERS MEET DETROIT SQUAD
OCT 4 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers will meet an old foe on the home gridiron next Sunday when the Detroit Lions come here for a National Professional Football league game. The name is new to pro fans, but the team itself is one of the best known in the league. The Lions up until this year were known as the Portsmouth, O., Spartans, one of the best pro aggregations in the country. Here Sunday will be Dutch Clark, rated as one of the finest quarterback who ever wore moleskins. He was the league's leading scorer two years ago. Glenn Presnell and Father Lumpkin, a pair of flashy backs, also are with the Lions. Frank Christensen, 195-pound fullback from Utah, is hailed as the greatest punter since Verne Lewellen, the star Packers' fans cannot forget. The Lions have won both of their league starts this year. The Packers have two victories to their credit, but bowed to the champion Chicago Bears two weeks ago. The Packers showed last Sunday that they have perfected a fine running and passing attack. That is one of the Lions' strong points, and a wide open game is in prospect when they clash Sunday.
PACKERS HOLD EXTRA DRILLS FOR GRID GAME
OCT 5 (Green Bay) - Two teams fired with championship intentions will clash at City stadium Sunday, when the Lions of Detroit meet the Packers of Green Bay, and although the Lions are given a strong chance to upset the cart with a timely victory. Putting the finishing touches on an altered offense, Coach E.L. Lambeau called two practices both Wednesday and Thursday, with one blackboard talk before each morning session and another skull drill in the evenings...THREE GOOD RECEIVERS: One of the chief goals of the Packers in Sunday's game will be to annul the punting of Christensen, former Utah fullback, who has been slapping the ball high and far for the Lions this season. Coach Lambeau expects to cut down Christensen's distance by means of improved returns, and if Monnett, Laws and Grove, all good receivers, can rush the ball back past the Detroit ends, much of the effectiveness of the punts should be lost. Al (Bigum) Rose is doing bench duty with an infected leg, adding to the coach's troubles at end, and Lon Evans, guard and tackle, has been missing from work for two days, due to illness. The advance ticket sale has been brisk - too brisk, in fact, that out-of-town sales have rivaled those before the Packer-Bearg ame, which set a new city record. If local sales come through as well, another set of packed stands should feature Sunday's game...DETERMINED TO WIN: Lambeau is determined to win. He particularly wants to make a glump out of one Joe Holsinger, attached to the athletic department of the University of Wisconsin, under Coach Clarence (Doc) Spears. Holsinger has scouted the Packers in every game to date. With Brooklyn in its latest role as giant killer, following the team's upset of Boston last week, there is a possibility that the Dodgers may rise up and smack down the Bears, and this eventuality, coupled with a Packer victory over the Lions, would set the Bays up very nicely on the road to the Western division championship, now held by the Bears. The Packers would like very much to get into the post-season playoff against the eastern title holders, which this year will be held somewhere along the Atlantic seaboard, depending upon the behavior of the various gridmen between now and December...HAVE STAR BACKFIELD: The Lions are bringing a great backfield to Green Bay. With Ace Gutowsky, veteran fullback who hits the line as hard as any youngster in the league; Father Lumpkin, vicious blocking halfback; Glenn Presnell and Earl (Dutch) Clark, scoring leaders of 1932 and 1933, respectively, all working in the same backfield, the setup contains power, durability, elusiveness and speed. The Packers will match this with a set of backs who performed almost flawlessly against New York last week, and who can be depended upon to match the Lions blow for blow.
BULLETIN
OCT 5 (Detroit) - Detroit's professional football squad left here at 4:30 p.m. for Green Bay, Wis., where the Lions are scheduled to meet the Packers on Sunday. The squad of 30 players, trainers and coaches is routed via Chicago and is scheduled to reach Green Bay at 3:45 a.m. Saturday over the Northwestern road. The Northland hotel will be Detroit's headquarters at Green Bay.
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORTS
OCT 5 (Green Bay) - Have you studied the schedule of the NFL? If you have, you might have come to the conclusion, as we have, that the Detroit-Packer game here Sunday is one of the most important contests of the season and probably will determine whether the Lions go all the way through to fight it out with the Chicago Bears for the Western title in the National league - after the Packer game the Lions meet Philadelphia, Boston, Brooklyn, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Chicago Cardinals and then Cincinnati in that order before they meet Green Bay again in Detroit. In the final two games of the year the Lions play the Chicago Bears. If Detroit can upset the Packers they have practically a string of setups - with the exception of the Cardinal game until they meet the Packers again, so you can see the importance of the tilt Sunday from a Lion standpoint. But the Packers will have something to say about this game. They know the Lions have been pointing for them for the past two weeks and haven't been idle. Double sessions both Wednesday and Thursday and several chalk talks have been in order. The game is just as important to the Packers as it is to Detroit. If the Bays lose, they'll be practically out of the championship picture in the Western half of the circuit, so it's going to be a great game, and we'll take the Bays to win, probably by a 13 to 7 score.
HANSON BEST GROUND GAINER
OCT 5 (New York) - Beattie Feathers, Chicago Bears recruit back from Tennessee, has jumped into prominence in the race for individual ground gaining honors according to NFL statistics compiled today. Feathers has gained 181 yards which boosts him to third place only seven yards behind Swede Hanson, of Philadelphia and Temple, and five yards behind Warren Heller of the Pirates and Pitt. In addition to his ground gaining feats, Feathers is topping the circuit as a receiver of forward passes. He has gained 66 yards in three game on the catching ends of aerials. Arnold (Flash) Herber of Green Bay is setting the pace among the pass flingers. He has completed nine of his eighteen tosses for a 50 percent average, while Heller has completed 14 in 51 attempts...MONNETT LEADS SCORERS: Bob Monnett of Green Bay and Michigan State is topping the field goal kickers with four three-pointers in three games, and also is leading the race for individual scoring honors with 28 points. Hanson is a close second with 20 points, while Bronko Nagurski, all-league fullback of the Bears, is only a point behind the Philadelphia star. Ralph Kercheval, the Brooklyn recruit from Kentucky, has the longest field goal of the season to his credit in the 43 yard boot he made against Boston in his pro debut last Sunday.
UNBEATEN DETROIT LIONS TO INVADE GREEN BAY SUNDAY
OCT 5 (Green Bay) - The Detroit Lions, undefeated in two National Professional Football league games, will oppose the Green Bay Packers here Sunday in a game that is sure to affect the league standings. Both teams play in the western division. Interest in the Packers has been heightened by their 20 to 6 victory over the New York Giants last Sunday and one of the largest crowds of the season is expected. The Lions, formerly the Portsmouth Spartans, are next to the Chicago Bears, the greatest rivals of the Packers. Detroit has the same strong lineup that represented Portsmouth last year, with the addition of such outstanding players as Chuck Bernard, former Michigan center; Frank Christensen, Utah fullback, and Earl (Dutch) Clark, league scoring leader in 1932, who is back after a year's absence in which he coached at Colorado State. Coach E.L. Lambeau of the Packers this week announced the release of Harry Wunsch, former Notre Dame guard, and Charlie Casper, a back.
PRO GAME NOTES
OCT 5 (Green Bay) - Chalking up their second league victory at Cincinnati Sunday, the Chicago Bears kept pace with the Detroit Lions in the Western division. Each has won two and lost none...Beattie Feathers, recruit Bear back, made more yardage than the entire Red backfield. The youngster is a slippery performer and has shown plenty in his pro starts...Although defeated by the Bears Sunday, the Cincinnati Reds showed great spirit and made it a game all the way. Clark scored the Red points on a nice field goal attempt...Pulling something of a surprise, the Brooklyn Dodgers outlasted Boston Sunday and emerged from the mud with a 10-6 triumph. It was the opening league game at Brooklyn...Shipwreck Kelly and Ralph Kercheval, former Kentucky stars, and Red Cagle of Army fame led the Dodger attack on the Redskins. All three were always in the thick of the battle...Dutch Clark hasn't lost any of his prowess over his year's layoff from the pro game. The former Colorado gridder counted the only touchdown in Detroit's game against the Chicago Cards Sunday...With many new men in the lineup, the Chicago Cardinals are rewarding their followers with a nice brand of ball. It is the best looking red clad team in many years...A "full house" will be offered for the first time this season on Oct. 7 when all teams are in action. Percentage shakeups are a certainty after the day's work is completed...The New York Giants invade Boston and the fur is sure to fly because the Beantown boys want to win. Smarting under two consecutive defeats the Giants are also certain to prove tough...Pittsburgh will attempt to stop Swede Hanson at Philadelphia in an all Pennsylvania battle. The Quakers are one step higher in the standings than their smoky city rivals...After having lost to the Chicago Bears last week, the Cincinnati Reds will endeavor to stop the Chicago Cardinals in the Germantown backyard Sunday...Making their first eastern hop of the season the Chicago Bears will invade Brooklyn Sunday. Each team has a 1.000 percent rating which is subject to swift readjustment...The Detroit Lion-Green Bay Packer battle will be the feature contest of this weekend. Carrying over the fire of former Packer-Portsmouth Spartan rivalry the game is certain to be a bruising one...Steve Owen, coach of the New York Giants, is worrying a lot about his club. Some of the veterans have been unusually slow in rounding to form while none of the Giants' recruits have been any too hot in recent engagements...George Marshall, owner of the Boston Redskins, probably has been talking to himself all week about what happened in Brooklyn last Sunday. Marshall had figured his Hubtown team would sweep clean but his dream didn't last long...Jim Durfee, Columbus, O., one of the veterans of the National league, is drawing frequent assignments from President Carr this season. Durfee is a football bug and it is said he sleeps with a rule book under his pillow...John (McNally) Blood, one of the pro loop's bright spots, has recently left a Pittsburgh hospital and is expected to make his debut with the Pirates shortly. Blood has played with Duluth, Pottsville and the Green Bay Packers...Dr. Harry A. March, New York, turned author during the summer vacation and produced a book on professional football which provides interesting reading for those who follow the "ins and outs" of the post-graduate gridiron sport.
DETROIT AND GREEN BAY TO CLASH SUNDAY
OCT 5 (Green Bay) - Green Bay and Detroit's professional football teams fight it out here tomorrow afternoon in what may prove to be a game that will decide the Western title in the NFL. The kickoff is at 2 p.m. at the City stadium, and a crowd of 10,000 or more is expected. Seldom have two teams been put in a spot as the Packers and Lions will be in tomorrow. Both face the necessity of winning to keep pace with the fast-moving Chicago Bear eleven. For Detroit it will be an opportunity of keeping its record spotless for the year while Green Bay will be fighting for its third victory in four games...WIDE-OPEN FIGHT: The game promises to be a wide-open fight, with passes playing an important part in the picture. Both teams have men who can toss plenty of footballs; both have receivers capable of pulling them down from any part of the field. Lines rate about equal. In the backfield the Lions have Glen Presnell and Dutch Clark, two of the best open field runners in the league, Roy (Father) Lumpkin, Ace Gutowsky and Ernie Caddell - a formidable group of ball players. To match them the Packers can call upon Bob Monnett, Roger Grove, Clark Hinkle, Buckets Goldenberg, Joe Laws, Hank Bruder, Arnold Herber and Earl Witte. A good group in any man's league. Both teams have been pointing for the game in the past week in intensive drills. Double sessions have been in order in Green Bay with defense against Detroit pass plays being stressed. Over in Detroit the Lions have been doing similar work, practicing in the morning and afternoon. The Tigers arrived in Green Bay this morning and held another session, snapping through a fast drill this afternoon. They looked fit and smooth...IN GOOD SHAPE: Green Bay came out of the New York Giant game in fairly good shape and, with the exception of Al Rose, will have all regulars available. Rose has been missing from practice this week, due to an infection in his leg. Lon Evans, veteran guard, also has been out of service for a few days but will be in shape for the contest Sunday. The Lions have practically the same team that landed in second place in the National league last year, when they represented Portsmouth. In addition several outstanding college men of 1933 have been secured, and Dutch Clark returned to the game after a year's layoff, to further strengthen the squad...BERNARD AT CENTER: Outstanding among the newcomers is Charles Bernard, all-American center from Michigan and reported to be the highest paid lineman in the league. Six feet, three inches tall and weighing 215, Bernard is regarded as the greatest lineman ever developed at Michigan. In his three years of varsity competition, he had only one bad pass charged against him. To Mike Michalske, Bob Jones, Red Bultman and Nate Barrager will fall the task of trying to drive him out of plays to make openings for their backs. Whether they can do is remains to be seen. Another great college performer signed by the Lions is Frank Christensen, former Utah fullback. Detroit fans claim he is as great a kicker as was Verne Lewellen, dean of them all for many years when playing with Green Bay. Between halves of the game the Green Bay-Fort Howard Kickers and the Appleton soccer team will play a 15-minute soccer contest. It will offer an interesting comparison of the two types of football. A wire received President Joe Carr of the National league today, stating that Gordon McNutt would be the field

Sunday September 30th 1934 (at Milwaukee)
judge instead of Wilfred Smith as previously announced.
BEARS OPEN EASTERN INVASION
OCT 5 (Columbus, OH) - The Chicago Bears, world champions for the past two years, make their first Eastern invasion of the 1934 NFL season Sunday when they invade Brooklyn. The Dodgers won their only start so far and are leading the Eastern sectional race. The Bears are also unbeaten in two previous starts and top the Western race. This game is only one of a full program that sends all ten teams of the major gridiron circuit into action. Two Eastern teams, Boston and Philadelphia, make their seasonal debuts before home fans. The Boston Redskins, with an even break in two games, open with the New York Giants, eastern titleholders in 1933. The Philadelphia Eagles meet their rivals for the Pennsylvania state crown, the Pittsburgh Pirates in the opening game in Philadelphia. Of equal importance, in fact of more importance in the western section, will be the first test of the unbeaten Detroit Lions sway from home. Potsy Clark takes his squad to Green Bay where Curly Lambeau apparently has another Packer eleven comparable to the outfits which won three straight titles prior to the advent of the Bears to titular heights two years ago.
PACKERS MEET DETROIT SUNDAY
OCTOBER 6 (Green Bay) - Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau's Green Bay Packers will be hosts to the powerful Detroit Lions in a National Professional Football league game at the Green Bay City stadium Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The Michigan gridders are largely members of the Portsmouth Spartans of the past few years, next to the Chicago Bears. The team is undefeated thus far, and a large crowd is expected to witness the struggle which is sure to have a great effect on the 1934 pennant race. Besides the formidable array of backfield stars that caused plenty of trouble on league gridirons all over the return of Earl (Dutch) Clark, leading league scorer of the 1932 season, and a
newcomer, Frank Christensen, husky fullback from the
University of Utah who is hailed as the greatest punter
since Verne Lewellen. Christensen's long and accurate
kicking has played an important part in the two Detroit
wins, and both he and Clark had a great day against the
Chicago Cardinals last Sunday when he also showed
promise as a passer and runner. Clark showed that a
year's absence from the NFL during which he coached
at Colorado State, hasn't slowed him up at all when he
scored the only touchdown of the day, and shared
passing honors with Christensen. He is considered one
of the greatest field generals in the league. Side by side
with this pair will be Glenn Presnell the former Nebraska
all-American who led the league scorers last season;
Roy (Father) Lumpkin, the ex-Georgia Tech gridder who
has won the respect of fans and players wherever he
has played, and LeRoy (Ace) Gutowsky, who learned
the undergraduate game at Oklahoma. Matching the vet
Nate Barrager at center for the Bays, the Motor City
aggregation will have Chuck Bernard, unanimous choice
for all-America honors while a member of of Michigan
eleven last year. Coach Harry Kipke of Michigan has
called Bernard "one of the greatest centers of all time."
Although they are leading the league in passing, the
Packers proved to have a powerful running attack last
Sunday as Roger Grove and Bob Monnett, a pair of
former Michigan State backs, outstepped the Giant
tacklers for consistent gains. Buckets Goldenberg was
also in the thick of the battle and the veterans, Mike
Michalske, Claude Perry and Milt Gantenbein showed
their greatest play of the season in the line. Bob Jones,
one of this year's recruits, was also outstanding, and
this group promises to be a stumbling block for the
Lions in their championship quest.
PACKERS TO PLAY OLD PORTSMOUTH FOES
OCTOBER 7 (Green Bay) - The feature game of the NFL
Sunday will be played at Green Bay, for the Packers
entertain their old foes, the Portsmouth Spartans, now
operating as the Detroit Lions. The two teams always
have had battles royal. The rivalry was natural, as they
represented the only two small towns in the big league.
The fact that the Spartans have moved to Detroit will
only enhance the feeling that exists between the two
clubs, as the Michigan squad is rated a very dangerous
contender for the championship that the Packers are
trying to regain. To make the game tougher Dutch Clark
who was hell on wheels with Portsmouth two seasons
ago before he quit to coach, is back with the team.
Detroit beat the New York Giants, 9 to 0, two weeks
ago and Green Bay beat the same club last Sunday,
when it was in better shape, 20 to 6. Detroit has not
been scored on in its two games. The champion Bears
will play Brooklyn, which is undefeated in the east. Another good game, probably the best on the schedule next to the Green Bay-Detroit clash, will bring together the Giants and Boston. Steve Owens' Giants have to win that game to have any chance at all for the championship of the eastern division, for they already have lost two games and have won none. The Braves are rated as pennant contenders. In the other game Sunday, the Chicago Cardinals will play at Cincinnati and Pittsburgh at Philadelphia. Two Packers are among the first four in the league's scoring list. Bob Monnett leads the loop with 28 points, having made two touchdowns, four field goals and four points after touchdown. Hanson of the Eagles is second with 19. Nagurski of the Bears is third with 18 and Buckets Goldenberg of Green Bay fourth with 12.
