(GREEN BAY) - You could heap your praise on "Hard Luck Hank" Bruder today, using every superlative at your command and you wouldn't be doing more than giving the young man his due credit. The former Northwestern ace had a field day Sunday, turning in one of the most brilliant individual exhibitions of football ever seen here as the Green Bay Packers smothered a hapless Cincinnati eleven, 41 to 0, in a National league encounter. A slim crowd of 3,000 turned out. It was Bruder off tackle for 20 yards - around the end for 25, intercepting a pass, receiving a pass, running for touchdowns. In all, he scored three touchdowns, booted the ball from placement for four extra points besides gaining some 100 odd yards when he wasn't crossing the final line.
Early in the game play was slow and somewhat listless.
Then Bruder began to go to town. He continued to go.
His inspired play became infectious and soon his mates
began to get hot with him. After that it was just a case
of wondering what the score would be. The Redlegs,
demoralized and weak, didn't have a chance. With only
16 men in uniform and many of that number far from
being competent enough for this type of ball, Cincinnati
had little to offer. In fact the Reds seemed to be such a
loose organization that there was little glory for the 
Packers in beating them. There is little credit to the
National league for permitting such a club to be forced
upon the public. On the tossing end of many passes to
Bruder et al was Arnie Herber, coming back into his 
own after a poor early season start. The former West
High flash turned in a fine game, punting, passing,
running and blocking. Four of his tosses resulted in Bay
touchdowns. Joe Laws and Earl Witte also looked good
​in the Bay backfield, getting their first real tests under
fire. Although the opposition was decidedly weak, they
showed enough speed and elusiveness to indicate they
will be dangerous against any club, if the Packers 
continue to have the fire they displayed Sunday. Packer
defensive line play was good most of the time, with
Cincinnati seldom breaking through for gains. On the
offense, most of the time it was just a question of
blocking out charging Red linemen while Herber got off
passes - and they blocked them out better than they 
have at any time this year.
Cincinnati had little to offer in the way of an offense. The
line played fair ball on defense, but backs were woefully
weak on pass defense. Lack of reserve strength was
apparent and after taking considerable punishment from
the big powerful Bay line, the invaders had little heart
left to take it as the game drew near an end. In the first
few minutes of the play it looked like the Reds might 
make a ball game out of it. That was before the Bays
got underway, however. Once underway there was little
stopping the Packer running and passing attack and 
the Green Bay men scored in every period, counting 20
points in the final quarter. The first touchdown came late
in the first quarter. Jim Mooney's punting with the wind
gave the Packers trouble, keeping them in their own
backyard at the outset. Incidentally, the all-around play
of Mooney and his excellent kicking was one of the 
very few redeeming features for the Reds. The Reds had
the ball in midfield a few minutes before the end of the
quarter and Pope tried a pass over the right side of the
line. Bruder bobbed up and intercepted it on the Packer
43. He raced down the sidelines, evading Pope by a 
neat change of pace before he was finally knocked out
of bounds by Clark on the nine yard mark. The Packers
were penalized on the next play but on the second
Herber tossed a flat pass to Bruder in the end zone for
a touchdown. Hank then kicked for the extra point and
the Bays led, 7 to 0.
Cincinnati got the ball in Packer territory in the second
quarter when Munday recovered a Packer fumble on the
Bays' 27. The Reds couldn't gain, however, and Clark
tried to drop kick. Al Rose blocked it and it was the
Packers' ball on their own 27. A few plays later the 
Packers had scored again. The march started when
Herber passed to Laws for 20 yards. Arnie then tossed
another pass, this time to Peterson and the big end 
was dumped on the four-yard mark. Bruder drove hard
through left tackle for a touchdown and kicked for the
extra point. A pair of Cincinnati passes connected late
in the period and brought the ball to the Packer 10 yard
mark but Bultman intercepted a toss to end the threat.
A march from midfield brought the third Bay touchdown
in the third period. Grove split left tackle for 27 yards on
a spinner before he was hauled down on the Reds' 28
yard mark. Herber then passed to Bruder for 17 yards
and after three plays had failed to gain, passed again,
this time to Grove in the end zone for a touchdown.
Bruder's placekick for the extra point bounced off the
back of a Packer lineman and although it went between
the posts and over the bar did not count.
The fourth period contained plenty of excitement with
thrilling runs, great passes and blocking on display. The
Packers had the ball on the Reds' 35 yard mark after
Herber had passed to Rose for a touchdown. They 
rammed it forward to the 25 yard mark on a good 
cutback smash by Laws and another by Witte. Herber
than faded back and passed to Rose who stepped
across the line for a touchdown. Bruder added the extra
point with a placekick and it was 27 to 0. A few minutes
later Bruder came dashing to the left from the Packer
backfield and pulled down a Cincinnati pass. He
checked momentarily as his interference formed, then
started a mad dash down the south sideline. Three men
were taken out by clean blocks and Bruder reversed his
field cutting sharply to the center. He pivoted and sliced
through two men who tried to get him and cut back
again to the sidelines, racing across the goal line in the
most brilliant open field run of years. He kicked for the
extra point and it was 34 to 0. That might have been plenty of ball toting for the ordinary ballplayer but not for Bruder. A few plays later he took a pass from Herber and ran it 26 yards. Then he swept around end on a lateral pass play and had the ball on the 12 yard line after another gain of 14 yards. Joe Laws took the ball from that point a moment later, sliding off tackle, sidestepping and weaving his way through the secondary to race for a touchdown. Grove kicked for the extra point and it was 41 to 0.

OCT 15 (Green Bay) - Hank Bruder's run when he intercepted a Red Leg pass in the first quarter was one of the prettiest bits of play seen here. He raced down the south sidelines and when it looked like Pope would get him he checked his speed to throw Pope off guard.
As the Red back made a lunge for him, Hank then put
on full speed again, easily running past him. Clark
managed to stop Hank by knocking him out of bounds
on the nine-yard line...Cincinnati's club had only 16
men in uniform. The team has little business competing
in the National league with such an inadequate lineup.
It isn't likely that the team will finish the season. St.
Louis probably will take its place before the year is over.
..Jim Mooney, veteran end, who did all the punting for
the Reds, was the best ball player on the club. He got
off many great kicks, one of his boots traveling 83 
yards. Mooney also turned in a good game on defense.
Lee was the only other Cincinnati standout...Joe Laws
got loose for a great run of 35 yards or more in the
second quarter, pivoting out of the grasps of three men
on one occasion. He cut back and sliced through the
entire Red team, but the play was called back and the
Packers were penalized for clipping. Earl Witte's 
blocking brought favorable comment from many fans. It
was the first time he had a chance to show what he
could do over a long stretch...Barrager and Seibold
worked as guards. Although neither had played the
position before, they looked good. Seibold got through
the Red line several times to break up plays. A little
more experience and he will fit smoothly in the Bay wall
...Although he has been playing football for a long time
and he carries a lot more beef than he did a few years
back, Tackwell, Red end, still is capable of playing
some good football. He caught a pass in the second
period to put the ball on the Bay 19 yard line. The
threat ended, however, when Bultman intercepted a
pass on the 10...Herber got off his best punt of the day
when he booted from his own territory, out of bounds on
the Reds five yard line. It came in the third period...The
Fond du Lac Eagles drum and bugle corps entertained
between halves with an excellent drill...Herber got off 
the longest pass of the day in the third period, tossing
the ball 40 yards or better to Hank Bruder. The sun got
into Hank's eyes, however, as he turned while trying to
catch the ball, and he couldn't see it...The Packers left
for Milwaukee this morning over the Northwestern road.
They saw the Dean brothers play baseball this 
afternoon in an exhibition game and tonight will work
out under floodlights at the State Fair park in preparation for Wednesday night's game with the Bears.
OCT 15 (St. Louis) - Officials of the St. Louis Gunners, independent professional football team, asaid they would confer with representatives of the Cincinnati club of the National Professional Football league in an attempt to take over the Cincinnati franchise.
OCT 16 (Green Bay) - Closing the 1934 home season with a flourish, the Green Bay Packers next Sunday will meet a talented and versatile Chicago Cardinal squad at City stadium. Although the Bays are not discounting the importance, from a psychological point of view, of the Packer-Bear contest in Milwaukee tomorrow night, they will be faced with a problem involving the percentage table when they tackle the Cards Sunday. The Chicagoans bring no less than nine backs here, some of them highly experienced in the pro game. The list includes the famous Paul Pardonner of Purdue, whose uncanny dropkicking won him acclaim in the Western conference during recent seasons. Pardonner handles the team from his quarterback position. Another Cardinal quarterback is Tommy Murphy, late of the University of Arkansas, who is a stocky individual demanding much attention from opposing teams. Then there is Frank Greene of Tulsa, who scales 190 pounds and is reported to be an excellent blocker...HALFBACKS ARE SPEEDY: The halfbacks contain power and speed. Well known on American gridirons is Homer Griffith, one of the greatest of Southern California's Trojans, and another is Herbert Hinchman, the Butler ace. Roy Horstmann of Purdue, one of the best blockers on the team; Russell Douglas, Kansas State; Howard Tipton, Southern California, and Dave Cook, Illiinois, round out the list of famous football halfbacks carried by the Chicago team. The Cardinals carry only one regular fullback, but that individual is "Iron Mike" Mikulak, of the University of Oregon, who for the past three years has been the terror of the west coast. Mike continues the string of sensational fullbacks who have played for the Cardinals since the days of Ernie Nevers. The four Cardinal ends, all husky individuals, are well trained in the fundamentals of their position, and are slated to make matters tough and rough for the Packer wingmen. The flank players are Milan Creighton of Arkansas, George Duggins of Purdue, Robert Newman of Illinois Wesleyan and Bill Smith of Washington...TACKLES ARE GIANTS: The Cardinal tackles are all giants, the largest being 272-pound Red Isaacson, former Washington university ace. Isaacson is aided by Harry Field, Oregon State, 230 pounds; Louis Gordon, Illinois, 230 pounds, and P.J. Mehringer, Kansas, 200 pounds. In considering the guard positions, Packer fans will find brawn and stature well mixed, the group including Bree Cuppoletti, Oregon, 198 pounds; Rudy Golomb, Carroll, 195 pounds; Phil Handler, Texas Christian, 215 pounds, and Bill Volok, Tulsa, 215 pounds. The veteran Frank McNally has returned to his old post at center. He formerly played for St. Mary's and his cohorts at the position are Bernard Hughes, Oregon, and Paul Shenefelt, Mount Morris.
OCT 16 (Milwaukee) - Jubilant over their overwhelming victory against Cincinnati, the Green Bay Packers today oiled up their heavy artillery for tomorrow night's special barrage against their old rivals, the Chicago Bears. The Packers will oppose the Chicagoans in the floodlighted State Fair Park stadium in a non-conference duel for a purse of $1,000. The game is the second of a series played here for the benefit of big league football fans in the Milwaukee area. Sufficiently recovered from their injuries which kept him out of the Green Bay lineup against Cincinnati, Charles (Buckets) Goldenberg, Packer quarterback, was expected to be in shape to start against the Bears. Green Bay is expected to resort to its damaging aerial attack in an effort to forestall running gains of the Bears, powerful on the ground with such handy ball carriers as Bronko Nagurski, Johnny Sisk and Gene Ronzani. Tomorrow night's duel is of special interest to Packer fans since the Bears at present lead the western section of the National League. The Packers this year have set about to rise from the doldrums to the football heights of a few years back.
OCT 16 (Milwaukee) - After a day spent in watching the famous St. Louis baseball firm of Dean and Dean in action, the Green Bay Packers today started final preparations for their non-league game with the Chicago Bears at State Fair park tomorrow night. The kickoff is set for 8:15 o'clock. The Bay football team was scheduled to work out under the floodlights tonight, and Coach E.L. Lambeau reported all his men in good condition. The Packers had a lot of fun watching the Dean boys in action. The gridmen posed for several pictures with the two famous hurlers and generally enjoyed their holiday afternoon. The advance ticket sale is reported brisk, and with a train arranged to carry Packer fans from Green Bay to the game, a large home following is anticipated. Milwaukee fans expect to witness another fine game similar to the recent Green Bay-New York contest. Realizing that Buckets Goldenberg, blocking back, who has been laid up with an injured leg, may not be available for duty against the Bears, Lambeau shifted Milt Gantenbein, Wisconsin end, to a blocking halfback position. Gantenbein is a great blocker, and Lambeau made the change so that Milt could familiarize himself with the backfield spot. The Packers were loud in their praises of the lighting system at the West Allis field. There were no shadows and the whooping Bays had no trouble handling the ball as they drove through a vigorous practice session. The team's morale was never better.
OCT 16 (Green Bay) - We've never seen a football team in the National league that was quite as pitiful as the Cincinnati club that played here Sunday. When a city can do no better than have a makeshift squad of 16 men represent it in the National league, it's time it dropped out. The Reds have no business in this circuit. That the other clubs stand for it is to their disgrace and decidedly to their disadvantage. Not a club in the league can draw fans in paying numbers to see a club like that. In direct contrast to the loosely-knit Cincinnati club is the colorful Detroit team with plenty of money behind it. The management sponsors a period on the air every morning over WJR, Detroit, dramatizing some incident in the lives of its players or of the club's games. The Detroit club is owned by the same man who owns the station. The program goes on at 8:30 and is well worth listening to...When the Giants and Brooklyn teams clashed Sunday, five former Green Bay men were in the starting lineups. Bo Molenda started at fullback for the New Yorkters while Brooklyn had Wayland Becker, recently sold to the eastern club by the Bears, at one end and Tom Nash at the other. Jim Bowdoin was at a guard position, and Bruce Jones at the other. Over at Pittsburgh three former Green Bay men were in action. Johnny Blood, beg pardon, John McNally now, Quatse at teackle and Ben Smith at end...Over at Charlotte is Buster Mott, who played with the Bays last year. Charlotte plays in the American professional league. The team played Louisville a week ago, losing a close game. Williams, a former Cardinal tackle also played with Charlotte, and so did Holm, the big fullback from Alabama. Louisville had Braidwood and Tinsley, also dormer Cardinal players in their lineup. Cut Cavosie, from the iron country of Michigan, played right halfback for Louisville. Ken Raidick is playing with the Milwaukee Brewers club. Capser and Johnston, who started their season with the Packers, are going great guns for St. Louis. They featured in a win for their club Sunday.
OCT 16 (Milwaukee) - The Chicago Bears, unbeaten
champions of the National League, will meet the Green
Bay Packers at State Fair park tomorrow night. The
game will start at 8:15 o'clock. The Packers, who were
defeated by the champions in the first meeting this
season at Green Bay, 24 to 10, went through a long
drill on the West Allis field shortly after their arrival
today, and Coach Curly Lambeau said the squad will be
at full strength. The Packers have won three games
while losing two. Advance ticket sales indicate a crowd
of 10,000 will watch the game. A special train will carry
200 Packer rooters from Green Bay to Milwaukee
tomorrow afternoon. The game will be broadcast over
station WTMJ, starting at 8 o'clock. The game will not
count in the National league standings. The net
proceeds will be donated to charity. Officials will take
$1,000 out of the gate receipts for the members of the
winning team.
OCT 17 (Columbus, OH) - Despite some vigorous
booting by Jack (Automatic) Manders of the Chicago
Bears, Bob Monnett of Green Bay continues to lead the
National league scoring list, but his margin shrunk to
one point, according to officials statistics released
today. Another element in the race is Hank Bruder, also
of the Packers, who scored 22 points by himself versus
Cincinnati last Sunday, and catapulted into third place,
only five points behind Manders. There is only one other
player who has scored more than 20 points, that being
Ken Strong of New York, who has chalked up three
touchdowns and a pair of extra point kicks...10 BEARS
SCORE: The Chicago Bears hold a topheavy lead in
scoring diversity, 10 of their players having broken into 
the league column. Second place is held by Green Bay
with seven, and the other clubs line up as follows:
Boston and Pittsburgh, six each; Chicago Cardinals
and Philadelphia, five each; Detroit, four; New York and
Brooklyn, three each, and Cincinnati, one. Swede
Hanson of Philadelphia, Bronko Nagurski of the Bears,
Cliff Battles of Boston, Beattie Feathers of the Bears,
Strong and Bruder are tied for the lead in scoring 
touchdowns, each having crossed the last chalk line
three times...KICKS MOST GOALS: Manders leads in
extra point kicks with 12, his nearest rival being Bruder
and Monnett, with four apiece. Monnett's four field goals
give him the lead in that department.
OCT 16 (Green Bay) - Walkers' Cleaners will broadcast
the Packer-Bear game tonight over station WHBY. 
Wadham's Oil company will also broadcast the game
from Milwaukee over station WTMJ. Both broadcasts
will be directed from the Fairgrounds and are scheduled
to start at about 8 o'clock.
OCT 17 (Milwaukee) - With a crowd of 10,000 assured,
the Green Bay Packers will renew their rivalry with the
Chicago Bears here tonight in a professional football
game on the floodlighted State Fair park stadium field.
Interest here has never run higher in any professional
sport, more than 3,000 spectators turning out last night
to watch the spirited Packers drive through their final
drill under the lights. Reports of recent listless playing
on the part of the Packers were discredited by the
Milwaukee spectators, who witnessed a snarling, 
driving squad hurrying through maneuvers which seem
to prophesy a busy evening for the Bears of George
Halas. Milwaukeeans were pleased by the news that
Johnny Sisk and Gene Ronzani, former Marquette aces,
are likely starters for the Bears, but were disappointed
when Coach E.L. Lambeau of Green Bay announced
that Charles (Buckets) Goldenberg, a highly popular
performer here, probably will remain on the bench,
nursing his injured knee...PROBABLY WON'T PLAY:
Lambeau will run no risks of injuring Gantenbein
permanently, and he made the announcement so that
Milwaukee fans will not be expecting him to use the 
blocking back. Furthermore, he has to keep his squad 
in the best possible shape for Sunday's contest against
the Chicago Cardinals at Green Bay. The Cardinals, 
with their best team of recent years, are set on going
places this season in the National league, and the Bay
line must be kept intact to repel the thrusts of Iron Mike
Mikulak, former terror of the Pacific Coast conference.
The rest of the Packers are in the pink, and apparently
anxious to get into the Bear fracas. The game will not
count in the National league standings, but it has lost
no color because of this angle, as the psychological
advantage of a victory in tonight's battle will be very
considerable...WON FIRST GAME: The Bears won at
Green Bay earlier in the season, 24 to 10, only after the
Packers had given them a running dog fight for three
periods. coming from behind twice to tie the score in
one of the most bitter battles ever staged between the
National league's oldest rivals. Joe F. Carr, Columbus,
O., league president, has announced that officials will
be Meyer Morris, Rock Island, referee; Gordon McNutt,
Milwaukee, umpire; George Lawrie, Chicago, head
​linesman, and Al Brown, Kankakee, Ill., field judge. The kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 o'clock. Probably 
Green Bay Packers (3-2) 41, Cincinnati Reds (0-5) 0
Sunday October 14th 1934 (at Green Bay)
1,000 Green Bay fans will drive or ride here for the game.
OCT 17 (Milwaukee) - Fired almost to the heat of a band of collegiate gridders set to seek an annual triumph from an ancient rival, the Green Bay Packers tonight will meet the Chicago Bears in an exhibition game in the floodlight State Fair Park stadium. While the game will not effect the conference standings, the two national pro league teams will fight it out for a winner-take-all purse of $1,000. Indications that a Packer game with the Bears is as attractive in Milwaukee as in the home seat of the Green Bay eleven were seen last night as some 3,000 spectators turned out at the park to watch the Packers hop through their paces. Defeated once by the star-studded Bear machine this year, Green Bay has more than the $1,000 at stake tonight. The Packers feel that a win tonight from the present league leaders will serve to make their chances for victory easier in the league meeting with the Bruins when the game counts in the averages.
OCT 17 (Milwaukee) - For the first time in the history of professional football the Chicago Bears, National Professional league champions for the past two years, and the Green Bay Packers, who ruled the pro domain in 1929, '30 and '31, will meet in Milwaukee tonight at 8:15 o'clock on the State Fair Park gridiron. The two clubs, most bitter of all pro football rivals, will engage in an exhibition game, with the players of the winning club obtaining a bonus of $1,000 in addition to their regular game salary. The losers will get exactly nothing from the special $1,000 purse put up by the club owners when Joe Carr, president of the league, vetoed the proposition that the game be regarded as a regularly scheduled league affair. Although the game does not have any bearing on the title, no one who knows the Packers and Bears players doubt that it will be anything but another drag 'em out affair. In their only meeting this year the Bears won, 24 to 10, after a ding-dong battle that saw the score knotted twice. The Bays helped to bring about their own downfall with some play and headwork that was not up to standard. Often the Bears' defense was wide open for a first or second down quick kick that would have put Nagurski and Co. in the hole and would have given the Bays position. But the quick kicks were never tried, position was seldom obtained and the Packers, hence, were unable to "open up" with their attack. The few times they were in position they showed as much concentrated offensive power as the Chicagoans. Another factor in the Bears' victory was the great margin they held in the punting game - something that should never occur to the Bays with such kickers as Hinkle, Bruder and Herber in the lineup. But that day, first of all, the kicking was not up to standard, and Beattie Feathers, the Bears' safety, was making marvelous returns, getting blocking aid not only from his backfield mates, but from the Packer flankmen who followed the Packer ends down the field and kept them out of the play quite handily on several occasions. On the other hand, the Packer safeties received little help from the limited number of blockers and the returns were cut down in proportion. Perhaps tonight the Bay ends will be instructed, too, upon the right occasions, to trail the Bears' ends down and help in blocking them out, thus offsetting what was the Bears' most effective weapon in gaining position in the game at Green Bay. Anyway, the Bears won, and tonight they'll have Nagurski, Red Grange, and the old Marquette favorites, Johnny Sisk and Gene Ronzani, Feathers, Bill Hewitt, the game's greatest end, Link Lyman, Musso and a host of other greats opposing such Packer stars as Rog Grove, Bob Monnett, Bruder, Hinkle, Laws, Jones, Gantenbein, Michalske and Evans among others. Buckets Goldenberg of the Bays, out with injuries, is the only first stringer who may not be in action, but he'll be in uniform and may get into the game in a tight spot or two. Not only will all these stars see action, but they'll stay in there most of the time because pro league club owners want to sell pro football to Milwaukeeans and Milwaukee to the pro league. In addition, we'll see what many consider the most up to date attack of football - that played by the Bears who have so coordinated their attack that the bone-crushing of Nagurski, the fleetness of Feathers, Grange and Molesworth and the all-around ability of Sisk and Ronzani all work hand in hand with a passing game that is the acme of aerial offensives because it dovetails so perfectly with the ground attack. And, because of this powerful attack, we look for the Bears to repeat their triumph of earlier in the season. Here's hoping we're wrong.
