GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - A perfect pass from center, a good catch by a kneeling quarterback who quickly placed the ball on the ground, a mighty boot by Glen Presnell, Detroit quarterback - and Green Bay lost a decision to Detroit's Lions here Sunday afternoon, 3 to 0. Fifty-four yards the placekick traveled to sail high over the crossbar on Green Bay's goal line - probably the longest kick for a score in the record of NFL competition. The kick came in the second period and was the highlight of an otherwise drab ball game, marked by excellent punting by Frank Christensen and Packer fumbles the few times they got into Detroit territory. A crowd of 8,000 turned out.
LITTLE OFFENSE SEEN
The Packers who lose to the Lions here Sunday were a far cry from the team that handed practically the same team last year a 17-0 bearing in a sea of mud. Playing under many handicaps with a wet ball on a field of mud last year the Packers never fumbled and got off great punts. Sunday, with everything in their favor, they could not hold the ball when they got openings and were far outclassed in the kicking duel. In justice to the team, however, it probably should be added that they all worked hard - Mike Michalske and Buckets Goldenberg in particular. It was one of those days that occasionally hits a team when everything goes wrong. Every break of the game went against the Packers. Detroit recovered every Green Bay fumble, was alert to take advantage and deserved to win though more aggressive play. Neither team showed much power on offense. The Bays were pushed back into holes deep in their own territory by Christensen's punting the greater part of the game and they seldom had chances to get their passing attack into action. Detroit played in midfield and in Green Bay territory more than they did in their own half of the field, but they lacked a punch to go beyond the Green Bay 20-yard
mark except on one occasion.
MONNETT BREAKS LOOSE
Green Bay's only serious threat of the game came late
in the first quarter. A 23-yard run by Monnett placed the
ball on the Detroit 36-yard mark. Three plays gained 
only six yards and on fourth down Monnet tried a place
kick. It was wide of the posts. After that it was a case
of Green Bay trying, with little success, to get out of its
own territory. Three times they managed to reach 
midfield through some good running, blocking and ball
carrying - and three times they lost the ball by fumbles
after they had invaded or neared Lion territory. Blocking
on Green Bay's part left much to be desired. It wasn't
nearly as impressive as against the Giants last week.
Monnett, receiving punts, seldom got good protection.
Fleet Lion ends quickly smashed down the field, 
evading Bay backs who tried to take them out, to nail
the receiver almost in his tracks. When a kicker's punts
sail far and the receiver is stopped cold, the receiver's
team usually is in a hole. That's what happened 
frequently when Christensen booted the ball Sunday.
Green Bay's punting, on the other hand, was just fair
and the Spartan receivers got much better protection.
With the win at their backs the Packers barely held 
​their own at the start. Running plays failed to gain in the
first quarter and with but one exception they were not
beyond midfield - that when Monnett reeled off a good
run around end for a first down on the Lions' 36. A
fumble by Grove a few moments after the start was
recovered by Detroit on the Bay 49-yard line. Clark
tossed a pass to Schneller that was good for a first 
down on the Bay 26 and it looked bad for the Packers.
Four plays gained only six yards, however, and Clark
dropped the ball on the final play when he was
apparently planning a dropkick, picked it up and tried to
run, only to be stopped short of a first down. The Bays
took the ball, punting out.
A POOR PUNT
The only bad punt of the day came late in the first
period when Clark kicked, booting the ball out of bounds
on the Bay 41-yard mark. Monnett then slipped over 
right tackle for 23 yards and the Bays tried their place
kick, only to fail. Shortly after the start of the second
period, Presnell made a good return of a Bay punt to
the Detroit 45-yard mark. A few plays later and it was
first down on the Packer 44, Detroit men hitting the line
for gains. The Packers held at this point and on the 
fourth down Presnell and Gutowsky dropped back. With
Gutowsky holding the ball Presnell kicked, getting off a
field goal. The rest of the period found the Bays mostly
in their own territory as the result of Christensen's
punting. The Lions rammed through the Packer line with
a sustained attack in the third period, the best drive of
the day going to the Bay 24 before they finally were
stopped. This came after the Packers had threatened
as a result of an intercepted pass by Goldenberg in
midfield, only to lose the ball on a fumble by Arnold
Herber a moment later. The Lions mixed running plays
slashing off tackle, and passes for gains, with Clark and
Gutowsky doing the best ball carrying. A 15-yard
penalty on the Lions pushed them back from the 24,
however, and on fourth down they tried a placekick from
the 48, but it failed, falling short. An 18-yard smash by
Bruder late in the period was the Packers' best gain of
the period.
IN COFFIN CORNER
At the start of the final period the Packers were in the 
coffin corner again and a punting duel followed. They
began to get up steam after about five minutes and
picked up a first down, after some smashes by Grove,
Monnett and Hinkle were good for 20 yard. Hinkle
fumbled, however, on a smash at the line and Clark
recovered for Detroit on the 49. Detroit picked up a 
first down on a penalty and Clark and Gutowsky
smashed through the line for a first down on the Bay
30. The Lions continued to crack at Green Bay's wall,
running out the time to protect their lead, but finally
lost the ball on downs on the Bays' 24. The Packers
opened with a last minute passing attack by Presnell
intercepted the third toss and ran it back to the Bays'
34-yard mark. Gutowsky cracked through the Bay line,
fumbled and the ball bounced to the Packer 19 but 
Clark recovered for his team and after another play the
game ended.
DETROIT   -   0  3  0  0  -  3
GREEN BAY -   0  0  0  0  -  0
2nd - DET - Glenn Presnell, 54-yard field goal  DETROIT 3-0
NEWS AND NOTES
SIDELIGHTS
OCT 8 (Green Bay) - Detroit, with a team that was big and fast, was the aggressor throughout in the game with the Packers here Sunday. The Lions got the jump on almost every play, often cracking a little faster, and probably a little harder than the Bays, despite the fact that the Bays outweighed them...Attired in natty
uniforms, the Lions presented a splendid picture when they raced across the field before the game. Their head gear and pants were silver and shirts blue...Detroit men never loafed at any time. When they came into the game or departed they raced off the field. It made an excellent impression. Emerson, a big, hard-hitting guard, was injured on one play but he raced off the field when he was replaced. He collapsed on the sidelines under the pain of exerting himself to run off...William McKalip, former Oregon State end, did a nice job at a Detroit wing. He got down on punts like a streak, avoiding Packer halfbacks time after time as they made futile, and sometimes sluggish, attempts to block him out...John Schneller, former Wisconsin end, whose home is at Neenah, turned in a good game. Coach Potsy Clark alternated his ends throughout the game, using four men. None were weak...The Bay tried hard to get steamed up to the occasion and at times succeeded, only to have fumbled wreck the attack. The slips seemed to take the heart out of them..Bert Noblet, athletic director of the Michigan School of Mines, sat on the Lions' bench with Coach Clark. Noblet's team  played St. Norbert college at De Pere Saturday and the coach and the boys remained over for the game. Noblet played football under Coach Clark at Michigan State several years ago...Green Bay fans haven't seen punting that could compare with
that of Frank Christensen, Detroit back, since Lewellen
was in his prime. He booted them far and high...The
Green Bay-Fort Howard kickers won from Appleton, 2 
to 0, in a soccer game played between halves of the
football contest. It was a fast, interesting encounter with
the local men having the edge most of the time in the
abbreviated tussle...Talk about your American interest 
in sport! Fans came to a football game, heard a radio
broadcast of a World Series during intermissions and
watched a soccer battle, all in the same afternoon.
CINCINNATI MEETS GREEN BAY SUNDAY IN
LEAGUE BATTLE
OCT 9 (Green Bay) - The only team headed by two
playing coaches, the Cincinnati Reds of the NFL, will
meet the Green Bay Packers Sunday at City stadium.
The Reds' lineup contains several former stars of the
Chicago Bears and New York Giants. The Green Sox
baseball team, Wisconsin State League champions, 
will be guest of the Packer management at the game,
after which they will gather around the festive board at the Beaumont hotel for their third consecutive annual victory banquet, at which the 1934 pennant will be presented...LAWRIE TO REFEREE: Officials for the football game will be George Lawrie, Chicago, referee; Meyer Morris, Rock Island, umpire; George Johnson, Chicago, head linesman; and Earl Wyman, Oshkosh, field judge. It will be the first appearance here this season by Lawrie, Johnson and Wyman. Lawrie has been working in the National league for a dozen years, while Johnson, who managed the Rock Island Independents back in the early 20's, now is a member of the American Association baseball umpiring staff. Incidentally, it is understood that Johnson and Cal Hubbard, former Packer tackle, who also umpires in baseball, are in line for promotion to major league staffs next year. Sunday's game will be the first time in gridiron history that a team representing Cincinnati has appeared here. Outstanding among the veteran players the team carries is big Cookie Tackwell, 218-pound end, who starred with the Bears in 1932. Tackwell is a Kansas Aggie man and has the goal posts range from great distance as a placekicker. Another star is Elvin (Tony) Feathers, Kansas State end and fullback, who has seen professional football experience with Cleveland, Stapleton, Detroit and the New York Giants. Feathers has been rated one of the best backs in the country...MOONEY GREAT KICKER: Among other Reds' end are Cole Wilging, Xavier ace, who is making his debut in the pro game, and Jim Mooney, who Cincinnati fans claim is the longest punter in the National league. They say Mooney never has been outkicked either in college or professional football. He is a Georgetown graduate and served for a time as assistant coach at Columbia. Mooney will do all of the Redlegs' punting Sunday. Cincinnati carries an experienced and speedy set of backs. Coach Algy Clark, of Ohio State, who is a great field general and a fine blocker, does most of the work at quarterback. Clark has seen service with Boston and Brooklyn, and his dropkicking already has chalked up points for the Reds. The fullback is Les Corzine, Davis and Elkins, who is playing his second season in the National league. Corzine's power rates him with Nagurski and Strong as a line bucker...FIRST YEAR WITH REDS: Packer fans will remember Lefty Vokaty, halfback, who graduated from Heidelberg and played professional football for Cleveland and New York. This is Vokaty's first year with the Reds. He teaches in Cleveland during the off season. Lewis Pope is the former Purdue halfback, who joined the Redlegs last season. While at the university, he starred with the Big Ten championship team of 1929, and he can do anything a good back is supposed to do. Halfback Gil (Pretzel) Lefebvre, who weighs 152 pounds, is the smallest man on the squad, but is constantly dangerous. He was with the St. Louis Gunners in 1932, and was one of the Reds' best ground gainers last season. Lefebvre never saw a college. Two western backs are Norris Steverson, Arizona State, who joined the Reds this season and already has won fame as the fastest man on the squad; and Brute Mulleneaux, University of Arizona fullback who was with the Giants in 1932. Mulleneaux is one of the hardest blockers on the squad. The list of backs is completed by Tom Bushby, a Kansas State veteran who is just breaking into the professional game...TWO GOOD CENTERS: The Redlegs are well padded at the center position, where Sheriff Maples and Bee Rogers hold forth. Rogers is a Notre Dame man who is thoroughly familiar with the Rockne system and Maples is a Tennessee product, rated one of the best centers in the country, who is getting his first taste of post-graduate play. Preparing for the Packer line thrusts, Cincinnati will bring five strong tackles here, and most of them probably will see action. Foster Howell, a professional freshman from Texas Christian, is one of the biggest men on the team and there also is Elser, of Butler, a 227 pound veteran. Other tackles are George (Sunny) Munday of Emporia, a former New York player who is one of the fastest linemen in the league; Ed Aspatore, who played with Marquette last season and is an exceptionally hard tackler; and Charles Zunker, 227 pounder from San Marcos Teachers, Texas. Zunker is one of the best tackles on the Cincinnati squad. The Reds carry but two guards although several of the tackles can double in that position. The guards are Biff Lee, 225 pounder from Oklahoma, who is best on offense, and Coach Wimpy Caywood, of St. John's, Oklahoma, who has 10 years' service in the professional game behind him. He was with Benny Friedman for seven years, and has played with Detroit, Cleveland and New York.
PACKERS STILL HAVE BEST PASSING MARK IN
NATIONAL LEAGUE
OCT 9 (Green Bay) - Defensively, the Detroit Lions and
Chicago Cardinals are compiling the most impressive
records in the NFL. The Cardinals, permitting only one
touchdown in three games, have held the opposition to
an average of 103 1/3 yards per game. Detroit's average
on the defensive is 126 1/2 yards but the Lions have
blanked the opposition in the three games they have
played. The Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Pirates hold
a wide edge on the offense. The Bears, like the Lions,
undefeated in three games, have averaged 294 yards
per game, while the Pirates' average is 251 yards in five
games. The Bears have scored 66 points against 49 for
Green Bay, the runner-up in that department. Green
Bay has the best passing average with 18 completed
out of 39 attempted.
GOLDENBERG IN HOSPITAL WITH INJURED KNEE
OCT 10 (Green Bay) - In an effort to return to victory row
after his team's disappointing 3-0 defeat by the Detroit
Lions last Sunday, Coach E.L. Lambeau drove his team
through extra practice sessions again this week, 
preparing for the first invasion of the Cincinnati Reds. 
The Packers came out of the Detroit fracas in fair shape
although Charles (Buckets) Goldenberg is resting in St.
Mary's hospital with a severe gash on his left knee, and
is not a certain starter for Sunday. Buckets ran Cadell
of the Lions out of bounds after the Detroit back 
received a long forward pass, and picked up a cleat 
slice in the process. The Bays have been lucky this 
year in staying out of the hospital, and Goldenberg
hopes to rejoin the squad before the end of the week, 
but it is doubtful whether he will be able to do so. He 
was laid up for six weeks during his college days with a
similar injury, and so he is taking the best of care of his
present hurt...WANTS MORE FIGHT: Realizing that the
team lacked fight and pep last week, Lambeau tried to
instill both in his players before the Cincinnati game, 
which is designed again to raise the Bay percentage
above the .500 mark. He also stressed the squad's
forward passing attack, with indications that footballs
will be rained all over the field Sunday. A considerable
portion of the crowd who witness the Packer-Red game
here Sunday will go wearing sweaters, as between 30
and 40 high school football squads will be present as
"paying guests' of the Packer management. The high
school students traditionally witness one Packer game
each season as unites, and with the prospect of a wide
open game for Sunday, their coaches are anxious to 
have them see professional football at its flashiest. The
kickoff has been set for 2 o'clock.
NFL SCORING
OCT 10 (Columbus, OH) - The official scoring statistics
of the National league reveal that Bobby Monnett, the
Packer halfback, still leads the race, although not a 
single Packer broke into the scoring column Sunday.
Monnett has a lead of nine points over Swede Hanson
of Philadelphia, who also went scoreless against
Pittsburgh last Sunday. In addition to leading the circuit
in total points, Monnett has booted the most field goals
with four to his credit. His nearest rival is Harry 
Newman of New York, who has three, all gleaned
against Boston last week. Hanson's three touchdowns
give him a tie with Bronko Nagurski of the Bears in that
department, while Jack Manders of the national champs
has kicked six extra points to lead his speciality.
WINNER TO GET BONUS IN BEAR, PACKER
BATTLE
OCT 10 (Green Bay) - When the Green Bay Packers
meet the Chicago Bears in a game under lights at 
State Fair park, Milwaukee, Wednesday, October 17,
they will have the added incentive of fighting for a 
$1,000 bonus that goes to the winning players, Leland
H. Joannes, president of the club, announced today.
The Packer management wanted to have the game 
count as a regular league encounter in the National
league standings, although it was booked after the
regular schedule was drafted. President Joseph F. Carr
of the National league ruled against this plan, however,
notifying President Joannes and George Halas, of the
Bears, that under league rules this could not be done.
He said that all clubs are limited a 13-game league
schedule this year. Each club may play as few games
as it desires, providing all in each division play a home
and home series with every team in its division, but
none may play more than 13 contests and have them
count in the percentage table, the president declared.
In order that the Bear-Packer struggle in Milwaukee be
more than an exhibition, the bonus plan has been agreed upon by officials of the Green Bay and Chicago clubs, President Joannes said. There is plenty of rivalry between the clubs, and it probably would be an outstanding attraction, even if it was not a league encounter, and there was no bonus. With the added incentive of a $1,000 bonus to the winners, it should be even more sensational, the president believes. The bonus will be in addition to the salary arrangements made with both clubs and their players for this game. Work of preparing the field for night football is expected to be completed today, the president said. A brisk advance sale has been reported and indications point to a crowd of 10,000 or more. The Packers will leave for Milwaukee Monday, arriving there in time to work out under the lights Monday and Tuesday evenings.
CINCINNATI'S REDS PLAY HERE SUNDAY
OCT 13 (Green Bay) - From down Ohio way come the
Cincinnati Red Legs to Green Bay Sunday, intent upon
getting out of the National league cellar at the expense
of the Packers. They get their fling at the Green Bay
team tomorrow afternoon at the City stadium at 2 p.m.
Although beaten in four starts the Red Legs are apt to 
be no pushovers for the Green Bay team. In every game
they have given opponents tough battles for two and 
even three quarters, only to falter in the closing minutes.
Against the Bears they held a 3 to 0 lead for more than
half of the game, but went to pieces in the last part of 
the third quarter and in the final period. The team is sure
to be at its best tomorrow as it has been fortunate in
escaping the injury jinx and has shown improvement 
from week to week. Realizing that it will be hard put to
gain through the heavy Packer line, the invaders are
reported to be ready to throw passes from the start to
the finish. In Tiny Feathers, Lefebvre, Mulleneaux, Clark
and Steverson the squad has a group of backs who can
toss passes with the best of them. In Mooney, Tackwell
and Wilging, ends, and Bushby and Vokaty, backs, the
squad has some capable receivers..A GREAT PUNTER:
In Jim Mooney Cincinnati has one of the best - if not the
best - punters in the league. Feathers, Lefebvre and
Mulleneaux are rated as good ball carriers. Other backs
have done good blocking. Lou Little, Columbia coach,
classified Mooney the greatest punter he ever coached.
That Cincinnati hasn't been able to win is due mainly to
lack of capable reserve linemen and inexperienced in
National league competition. The team was organized
last year and did fairly well, everything considered. C
Coach E.L. Lambeau has been giving his men plenty of
work this week, brushing up on pass defense and the
offense. The team has worked smoothly in drills,
snapping through new plays with plenty of precision.
The coach plans to give all of his new men plenty of 
work and have them toss forward passes consistently...
GOLDENBERG IS OUT: Buckets Goldenberg, hard
working back, is not expected to get into the game as
an injury to his knee last Sunday put him into a hospital
for a few days. Buckets is recovering rapidly, however,
and should be in shape for the Bear game in Milwaukee
Wednesday. Clark Hinkle has been under the weather
with a sore throat and Bob Monnett has a charley horse
which may keep him out of action. Others are in good
shape. The Packer coach plans to use Nate Barragar at
a guard position, alternating with Mike Michalske.
Barragar, a veteran center, looks good in the flanking 
position, as he is in fast, and a good blocker. Champ
Seibold, Oshkosh, has been made over into a guard, 
and probably will alternate with Bob Jones on the right side of the line. Michalske and Jones have been carrying the brunt of the work as guards this year. Lon Evans, who has worked at both guard and tackle, will be a tackle position most of the time Sunday. He looks good at the post. The Red Legs are scheduled to arrive in town late today and stop at the Beaumont hotel. They had planned to get here earlier and work out this afternoon but had to change these arrangement at the last minute. The Fond du Lac Eagles' drum corp will entertain between halves of the game. Approximately 12 high school teams will attend the game under special arrangements with the Packer management.
RED ELEVEN AT GREEN BAY TODAY
OCT 14 (Cincinnati) - Cincinnati football Reds' hopes for their first win in the NFL again went glimmering yesterday as they departed for Green Bay, Wis., where they will meet the Packers this afternoon. Tom Bushby and Sheriff Maples were forced to remain at home, due to sickness and injuries. Bushby has been suffering from a stomach ailment and Maples will be out the remainder of the season as the result of a broken leg. To offset these mishaps, Coach Algy Clark, who was out of the Chicago Cardinal game last week because of an injured right hand, will return to the lineup today, while Bill Lewis, former Texas Christian University star, is to make his debut in Red regalia at a halfback position. Sixteen players made the trip to Green Bay. Al Ritter, Red trainer who also conditions the Indianapolis American Association baseball team, also was in the party.
PACKERS TO PLAY BEARS HERE WEDNESDAY
OCT 14 (Milwaukee) - The Green Bay Packers will come back to the State Fair Park stadium Wednesday night for a non-league game under the floodlights with their old rivals, the Chicago Bears. The Journal's charity game two weeks ago introduced the Packers in their new Milwaukee field so successfully that local football fans have been making reservations steadily ever since. Tickets are on sale in the Journal lobby. The Packers wanted to make the game an official National Professional league contest, but George Halas wants his Bears to keep the title they won last season, so he decided two league games with as tough a club as Green Bay would be plenty. The two teams have been rivals for so long that a real battle is assured every time they get together, but to add to the incentive of the players a $1,000 purse will be set aside from the gate receipts to be divided among the men of the winning team. Green Bay will play a third game here Sunday November 18 with the Chicago Cardinals. It will be a league game. The Packers have only a mathematical chance now to finish on top of the western division of the league, and a slim one at that, but they don't intend letting it slip away without a fight. They'll return to the wars at Green Bay Sunday against Cincinnati. Every club in the league will be in action Sunday. While the Packers and the Reds collide in Green Bay, New York and Brooklyn will get together at Brooklyn, Detroit and Philadelphia at Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Boston at Boston and the Cards and Bears at Wrigley Field, Chicago. It is the second last home game on Green Bay's schedule. The Cardinals will play the last game in Green Bay October 21.
Detroit Lions (3-0) 3, Green Bay Packers (2-2) 0
Sunday October 7th 1934 (at Green Bay)
CINCINNATI SIGNS NEW PLAYERS FOR GREEN BAY BATTLE
OCT 11 (Cincinnati) - Coming out of the Chicago Cardinal game with every man in good condition, the Cincinnati Redlegs of the NFL today were packing for their road trip which will bring them to Wisconsin for a game with the Green Bay Packers. The Redlegs will entrain tomorrow, arriving at the Wisconsin professional football capital Saturday morning. Head Coach Algy Clark will hustle his charges from the train in time for a brisk workout at the Packer field on Saturday afternoon...TEXAS CHRISTIAN STAR: William Lloyd Lewis, Texas Christian halfback who excels in running, kicking and passing, was signed by Cincinnati Monday, and will get his first taste of professional competition against the Packers. He was a teammate of Lon Evans, Green Bay guard, at T.C.U. Another man for Green Bay to watch is diminutive Gil (Pretzel) Lefebvre, Redleg halfback and the smallest man in the National league. Despite his lack of beef, Gil is one of the best ground gainers for the Rhineland team, and is expected to cause the Bays plenty of embarrassment. John Popov, Cincinnati halfback, who scales 194 pounds, also was added to the squad this week...TEN YEARS OF PLAY: The "dean" of the Redlegs is Assistant Coach Caywood, who is serving his tenth season in the National league, and his second with the Redlegs. Most of the men who played in Cincinnati's inaugural year last season are back with the squad this trip. In all, there are 11 of the 1933 team back again, out of the total squad of 23. Men who saw service last year, and who are back again are Algy Clark, Les Caywood, Lewis Pope, Lester Corzine, Gil Lefebvre, Brute Mulleneuax, Hilary Lee, John Rogers, Jim Mooney, Cookie Tackwell and George Munday. This year the Redlegs have some of the most colorful players in professional football, although there is a dearth of all-Americans on the squad. Foster Howell, six-foot, three-inch, 205 pound tackle, is one of the promising new members. He also is a T.C.U. man, playing three years of varsity football under Coach Francis X. Schmidt, now Ohio State mentor...REDS HAVE HOPES: The Redlegs have given stubborn resistance to all their foes this season, despite the fact that they haven't broken into victory row. The defeat of the Packers at the hands of Detroit last week has heartened the team considerably, and Coach Clark is of the opinion that the Bays are about due for another drubbing. The Cincinnati strategy already has been unfolded. Whenever the team gets within reasonable distance of the goal, it tries for a field goal, as the squad possesses two crack placement booters in Algy Clark and Cookie Tackwell.
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORTS
OCT 11 (Green Bay) - The wolves have been howling this week, their cries of anguish being heard into the long hours of the night. If you care to listen you can hear the lament in any drug store, pool room or tavern. You probably have guessed by this time that the Packers lost a football game. We've heard 27 different reasons why the Detroit club beat the Packers last Sunday. We've heard 39 different versions of what they should have done. That's by actual count. You can't blame the "corner coaches" however. That's their American born right - to criticize any game or show they pay admission to see. Without it, any program would soon flop. It shows fans have a lot of interest in the club when they take time out to talk about it all the time, even if they are critical. But don't count the Packers out of the National league race just yet. Their performance Sunday was sloppy, certainly, but it has been good on other occasions this year more often than it has been poor. Perhaps we are wrong, but we believe that this club will wind up the season winning a few more games than it loses. We can see plenty of potential strength, that when molded together better, will prove to be plenty tough. After all, you can't overlook the fact that the club of 1934 has only four men from the team that won the championship three years ago. The others are new men, who have come up to the big show in the past year or two. The club has some new pass plays that are as smooth as anything we've ever seen. They haven't been used much yet, as the team hasn't been able to get underway. You'll see several of these plays executed in another few weeks however and you probably also will see better blocking. For the first time since he joined the team this year, Joe Laws, the flash little quarterback from Iowa is really "ripe". Joe has been having trouble with a knee injury sustained in the All-Star game, and although he has played a little, hasn't been at his best. In drills yesterday and today, however, he said that he felt absolutely no pain. His play, particularly on spinners, showed considerable improvement. Buckets Goldenberg won't be able to play Sunday, as an injury to his knee sustained in the game with Detroit will not be completely healed. The stock back has been one of the most consistent performers on the squad, and the Packers are sure to miss him.
ONE COMMON INTEREST
OCT 11 (New York) - Widely separated interests are represented among the owners of the ten clubs in the NFL. About the only thing in common among the various owners hold is their interest in football. While several of the clubs are stock corporations with a wide spread in ownership, in general, it is an individual enterprise. The Chicago Bears are owned, managed and coached by George S. Halas, a former pro player and star at Illinois. Associated with Halas in ownership of the club that has held the world title for the past two years is Jim McMillen, a prominent contender for the world's wrestling championship and a gird star before he took to the mat game. The Chicago Cardinals are owned by Charles Bidwill, a leader in Chicago sport propositions for many years and a director in the Chicago Stadium. The Green Bay Packers started as a community proposition with a non-profit corporation and are still conducted on that basis with L.H. Joannes, executive of a leading Wisconsin wholesale grocer house, as the head of the football corporation...RICHARDS HEADS DETROIT: Detroit, newest entrant in the league, is headed by G.A. Richards, who controls the NBC radio stations in Detroit and Cleveland, while the Cincinnati club has Dr. M. Scott Kearns, prominent physician of that city, as its guiding head. The New York Giants, now in their tenth season as a member of the National league, are owned by Tim Mara, one of the foremost sportsmen of New York who in addition to heading a prosperous fuel business and liquor importing company, has promoted some of the biggest fights of recent years in the New York major league ball parks. Brooklyn is under new ownership this season, and, in John (Shipwreck) Kelly, has the only player-owner in major league sports. Associated with Kelly is Daniel Topping, one of the high ranking golfers in the metropolitan district and an advertising expert...MARSHALL AND BELL: George Marshall, publisher of a Washington, D.C. newspaper and also owner of the Palace laundry in that city, is associated with Larry Doyle, New York broker, in ownership of the Boston Redskins. Bert Bell, who is managing owner of the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Philadelphia, is a prominent shareholder in the Philadelphia Eagles with Lud Wray, former Penn head coach, who is also tutoring the club in which he has an interest. The Pittsburgh Pirates are owned by Arthur Rooney, who for years promoted an independent team in that section. Rooney, in addition to his political activities, was a star athlete himself, even to the point where he was with several major league baseball clubs. The name of Rooney is well known in Pittsburgh not only because of Art, but because of his brothers and close relatives who have participated in football and other sports at Duquesne and the University of Pittsburgh.
CINCINNATI TO BATTLE PACKERS COMING SUNDAY
OCTOBER 11 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers continued preparations today for their National Professional football league game with the Cincinnati Reds here Sunday. Cincinnati, with several former stars of the Chicago Bears and New York Giants in the lineup, is expected to provide strong opposition for the Packers. Among the outstanding veterans is Cookie Tackwell, 218-pound end, who played with the Bears in 1932. Another star is Elvin (Tony) Feathers, Kansas State end and fullback, who has had professional experience with Cleveland, Stapleton, Detroit and the New York Giants. Sunday's game will be the first time in history that a Cincinnati team has appeared here.
​PACKERS IN EXTRA WORK THIS WEEK
OCT 11 (Green Bay) - In an effort to return to victory row after his team's disappointing 3 to 0 defeat by the Detroit Lions, Coach E.L. Lambeau drove his Packers through extra practice sessions again this week, preparing for the first Green Bay invasion of the Cincinnati Reds. The Packers came out of the Detroit fracas in fair shape, although Charles (Buckets) Goldenberg is resting in St. Mary's hospital with a severe gash on his left knee, and is not a certain starter for Sunday. Buckets ran Cadell of the Lions out of bounds after the Detroit back received a long forward pass, and picked up a cleat slice in the process. The Bays have been lucky this year in staying out of the hospital, and Goldenberg hopes to rejoin the squad before the end of the week, but it is doubtful whether he will be able to do so. He was laid up for six weeks during his college days with a similar injury, and so he is taking the best of care of his present hurt. Realizing that the team lacked fight and pep last week, Lambeau tried to instill both in his players before the Cincinnati game, which is designed to again raise the Green Bay percentage above the .500 mark. He also stressed the squad's forward passing attack, with indications that football will be rained all over the field Sunday. A considerable portion of the crowd which will witness the Packer-Red contest next Sunday will go wearing sweaters, as between 30 and 40 high school football squads will be present as "paying guests" of the Packer management. The high school students traditionally witness one Packer game each season as units, and with the prospect of a wide open game for Sunday, their coaches are anxious to have them see professional football at its flashiest. The kickoff has been set for 2 o'clock.
CINCINNATI ELEVEN HAS GREAT PUNTER FOR PACKER BATTLE
OCT 12 (Green Bay) - The Cincinnati Redlegs have filed notice with the Green Bay Packers that the latter team is going to see something unusual in kicking when the squads get together at City stadium Sunday in a NFL game. The Packers, familiar with the long distance boots of Verne Lewellen, former all-American halfback, were treated to their best exhibition of pigskin
belting in several season last Sunday, when Frank
Christensen, formerly of Utah, staged a one man show
with the Detroit Lions...REMINDER OF LEWELLEN:
Christensen's long kicks were greatly reminiscent of the
heydey of Lewellen, when the veteran halfback reeled
off punts upwards to 70 yards, and slapped the ball
regularly into the famed coffin corner. The Redlegs,
however, disdain to regard Christensen as the premier
punter of the National league, and they brazenly put 
forth Jim Mooney, halfback of Georgetown university, as
the end who may lay greatest claim to the title. Mooney
will do all of the Cincinnati punting when the Redlegs
play here Sunday, and the Redlegs are used to plenty 
of punting. Mooney is a Chicago product, and after
graduation worked for the Dodgers of Brooklyn as a star
wingman. The Dodgers used to haul him out of the line
when some exceptional punting seemed in order, and
the veteran flankman would slap the oval far and high.
Later he went to Columbia university as assistant coach
of the Lions, remaining one year at the New York 
school, and now he is back in the professional game
again, sending his long spirals skyward from the vintage
point of the Cincinnati backfield. Mooney usually works
at end, but it isn't a far walk from the Redleg line to the
same team's backfield, and Coach Algy Clark has no
compunctions about bringing his ace performer into the
back line when a distance kick is needed...OTHER
GOOD KICKERS: Mooney isn't the only ace kicker the
Cincinnati club carries. There also is Cookie Tackwell,
former Chicago Bear lineman, whose specialty is
placement kicking from far points, and Clark himself,
who is able to rap footballs between the posts from a
considerable position out in the field.
BEARS, DETROIT LEAD
OCT 12 (Columbus, OH) - The Chicago Bears and the
Detroit Tigers, the two undefeated teams in the NFL,
are respectively the best offensive and defensive teams,
according to figures released today. The Bears have
scored 94 points to their opponents' 20, while Detroit
has scored 18 points and held opponents scoreless. All
other teams have been scored upon.
SPECIAL TRAIN WILL CARRY PACKER FANS TO
MILWAUKEE GAME
OCT 12 (Green Bay) - Fans will have an opportunity to
follow the Green Bay Packers to Milwaukee for their
game with the Chicago Bears Wednesday night, Oct.
17, on a chartered train at a special all-expense rate, it
has been announced by E.D. Crim, passenger agent 
for the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul railway (Milwaukee road). The tickets which may be purchased at the railway ticket office or the Packer ticket office for $4.90 include the round trip to Milwaukee, admission to the game with seats in the big grandstand on the Packer side of the field and transportation to and from State Fair park where the game is to be held. The train will leave the station here at 5:05 o'clock in the afternoon, and be back in Green Bay at approximately 1:30 o'clock Thursday morning. Only holders of the special rate tickets will be permitted on the train, which will be known as the Packer Special. A recreation car with music and special entertainment as well as a dining car serving both meals and short orders priced moderately will be attached to the train. Both cars will be open for the entire trip, the latter serving those who may find it impossible to eat before the trip. Unless arrangements can be made to have the train stop at State Fair park, buses will be provided at the railway station at no extra expense to the passenger. About 200 are expected to make the trip.
PRO GRID NOTES
OCT 12 (Green Bay) - The eastern half of the circuit is developing into a mad scramble as all the clubs has been bumped off. In the western loop the Bears and Detroit hold a commanding lead over the Cardinals, Cincy and Green Bay...Jack Reardon, Gotham newspaperman, is drawing officiating assignments regular from President Carr. Reardon has been working the post-graduate gridiron loop for a long time. His favorite officiating job is head linesman...Harold MacPhail, one of the newcomers in the Boston backfield, got his name in the scoring column last Sunday when he snagged a New York fumble on the fly and ran for a touchdown. MacPhail was at West Point last year...Dad Kenneally, the veteran Philadelphia end, is playing a lot of minutes for the Eagles this fall. Lud Wray, pilot of the Phillies, likes to keep Kenneally on the field as he has a steadying influence on the other players...Potsy Clark, the Detroit coach, is a great showman. He never misses a chance to pull something different. Clark has his Lions all pepped up and the championship bee is buzzing quite loudly around the Motor City machine...Paul Pardonner is up to his old tricks again as he clocked on a 30-yard drop kick for the Chicago Cardinals against Cincinnati. During his three years at Purdue, Pardonner counted many Boilermakers' points with his educated toe...Bo Molenda doesn't seem to ever get old. The New York fullback appears to be faster than ever this fall. Molenda was working all summer in a Detroit auto plant and he was in the pink of condition when practice got underway...Les Corzine, the Davis and Elkins product, is one of the most dependable ball luggers on the Cincinnati squad. This is his second year of professional football and he has shown a marked improvement, particularly in his defensive play...League officials are checking up on the rosters of all the teams. A 22-player limit is the rule after three games have been played. This makes it necessary for all the coaches to sharpen their shearing tools at once...A gala attraction will usher in the professional football season in Chicago as the Cards and Bears will lock horns at Wrigley field. The Halasmen haven't tasted defeat this fall but the Cards may be bitter medicine...New York will be at home to Brooklyn at the Polo grounds. This will be the Giants' first appearance this season in their own backyard. Steve Owen and his hirelings are reported set to take their neighbors into camp...Detroit plays in Philadelphia this weekend. The former Portsmouth club is hitting on "all eleven" these days and Coach Lud Wray of the Eagles will have a tough job on his hands to keep the Lions from grabbing the victory...Coach Lone Star Dietz has hopes of breaking his high priced Boston eleven in to the win column this week at the expense of Pittsburgh. The Redskins have been bumped twice this fall and the team is hungry for a win...Paddy Driscoll, one of the greatest quarterbacks that ever stepped on a professional gridiron, is scouting for the Chicago Bears. Paddy is getting to be pretty handy with the pad and pencil as he diagrams the formations...National league records fail to reveal any field goal like Glenn Presnell's boot against Green Bay last Sunday. The Detroit halfback's placekick sailed exactly 54 yards and it split the uprights right in the middle...Harry Newman, former Michigan quarter, was just about the whole show for New York in the Boston engagement. He ran the opening kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown, added two extra points and also kicked three goals from the field...A crowd of 20,000 saw Shipwreck Kelly and his Brooklyn Dodgers bow to the Chicago Bears by a 21 to 7 score. Brooklyn was first to break the ice with a touchdown but the Bruins soon tied it up and then went on to victory...For the second time this fall, the Chicago Cards took Cincinnati. Last Sunday's contest, which was a night game in Redland, produced some exciting football but the Windy City gridders ruled supreme by a 16 to 0 count...Pittsburgh evened the count with Philadelphia by taking the Quakers into camp in a bitterly fought contest, 9 to 7. A field goal by Niccolai put the Pirates in the lead in the first quarter and they were never headed.
PACKERS PLAN AERIAL ATTACK
OCT 12 (Green Bay) - A forward passing attack is expected to feature the Green Bay Packers' attempt to pass the .500 mark in the National Professional Football league in Sunday's game here against the Cincinnati Reds. Coach E.L. Lambeau has been driving the Packers through extra practice session this week after last Sunday's disappointing 3 to 0 defeat by the Detroit Lions. Only one Packers, Charles (Buckets) Goldenberg, is on the injured list. He suffered a severe gash on his left knee in the Detroit game and has been resting in St. Mary's hospital during the week. He probably will be able to start Sunday. More than 30 high school football squads will be "paying guests" of the Packer management at the Cincinnati game.
BEARS MEET CARDS
OCT 13 (Chicago) - The Chicago Bears, champions for
the past two years and undefeated in three starts this
season, and the New York Giants, defending eastern
champions, make their 1934 NFL debuts before home
fans Sunday. The Bears are slated to oppose their local
rivals, the Chicago Cardinals, in Wrigley field, while the
Giants meet their interborough rivals, the Brooklyn
Dodgers, in the Polo grounds. There are three other
league games scheduled. The unbeaten Detroit Lions
make their first eastern appearance in facing the
Philadelphia Eagles, while Cincinnati goes to Green 
Bay and the Pittsburgh Pirates invade Boston. The
leadership in both section of the league race is apt to
change. In the west the Cardinals have the strongest
team in years and against the Bears are certain to be
at their best. In New York, the Giants and Dodgers are
tied for the leadership so a new pacesetter is certain to
be listed. The Pirates are invading Boston anxious to
revenge a one touchdown defeat the Redskins handed
them several weeks ago and judging by their improved
showing last week will give Cliff Battles and his squad a tough duel. The Detroit defense, which has not yielded a score so far this season, will be in for a real test in Philadelphia with Swede Hanson, the Eagles' great running back, apt to cut loose at any time.
CINCY CLUB WILL VISIT GREEN BAY
OCT 13 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers will play their fourth home game in Green Bay this weekend when they are hosts to the Cincinnati Redlegs. The Packers also hope to take advantage of Sunday's guests to put themselves back in the victory column of the National Professional league standings. Thus far the Packers have had hard sledding in the league race, but Coach Curly Lambeau still figures that he has a potential winner in his 1934 club, and the Packers hope to start their race for the top post this week with a victory over the Redlegs. Last week's heartbreaking defeat by the Detroit Lions when a 55-yard field proved
the winning margin was just enough to set all the men on their toes for this Sunday's game. The Cincinnati coaches, Algy Clark and Les Caywood, however, are bringing a strong team to Green Bay to dispute with the Packers. The team has also done poorly so far this year, dropping its first four starts, but they are planning on stopping their losses with this week's contest. Numbered among their roster of players is Edward Aspatore, a 1934 Marquette grad, who is expected to prove one of the outstanding tackles in the post-grid loop this year. He hails from Fond du Lac. Other outstanding players for Cincinnati are Lewis "Chicken" Pope, a member of the Big Ten championship Purdue team in 1929; Elvin "Tiny" Feathers, who has had a lot of experience in the pro circuit, playing with Cleveland, Stapleton, Detroit and the Giants, and who is considered one of the most dangerous backs in the league, and Otto "Lefty" Vokaty, who does everything with his left hand. The game Sunday is billed as High School Day at the Packer stadium, and 30 or 40 high school football teams from all over Wisconsin are expected to attend the game as "pay guests" of the Packer management. The kickoff, as usual, will be at 2 p.m. Some of the Packers were banged up a bit in last Sunday's game, but the hospital list is expected to be well cleared up by this weekend. Buckets Goldenberg, the star of the game's defensive stand, took quite a beating while he played and was removed in the last quarter, but Buckets will be back on the firing line again this week. Practice this week stressed smoother ball handling on the part of the Packers to correct the fumbling habit which was a great factor in the defeat at the hands of the Detroit team.
