(GREEN BAY) - Displaying the most brilliant forward passing attack seen here in years, the Packers bid adieu for the 1934 season to 4,000 Green Bay fans here Sunday afternoon by whipping a powerful Chicago Cardinal eleven, 15 to 0. It was a bitter, hard-fought battle, with neither asking quarter or giving it. They hit hard and often, charged like smashing pile-drivers, and tackle as if it were to be their last stand for life. They fought for everything, and as a result fans saw one of the best and most thrilling games in years. Neither could gain consistently on running plays on a field made slippery by recent rains. As a result, Green Bay early took to the air, and with Arnold Herber in the leading role, connected on several plays to go for big gains after spectacular catches and runs. Herber's passing was beautiful to watch. On several of his tosses, split-second timing was apparent as receivers pulled the ball out of the air.
Sharing honors with Herber in the offensive maneuvers
were Clarke Hinkle, Joe Laws, Milt Gantenbein and 
Roger Grove. All made spectacular catches that brought
either gains or touchdowns. Laws figures in the most
sensational play of the game when he pulled down a
pass that seemed impossible to catch, racing 61 yards
with the ball before he finally was dragged down on the
Card 13 yard line. Running at full speed, Laws caught
the ball over his head, juggling it momentarily and sped
on. The battle of lines rivaled any put up between the
Packers and Bears in their traditional struggles. The
Cardinals were on their toes, often cracking through to
stop Bay ball carriers before they could get underway 
on the slippery field. The Packer forward wall played a
great game likewise, smothering Cardinals who tried to
penetrate it. After the battle six men were on the 
casualty list, with the Cardinals getting the worst of the
deal. Bernie Hughes and Dave Cook had sprained 
ankles while Bill Volok had a bone broken in his foot. All
will be out of the Cardinal lineup for two weeks or more.
Hank Bruder received a gash over his left eye that
required six stitches while Lavvie Dilweg sprained a 
wrist and Joe Laws injured his shoulder. Other were
badly bruised and shaken up but managed to get
through with no serious injuries.
The Packers scored in the first period on a pass to
Hinkle that was good for 69 yards, kicked for the extra
point and held the seven point margin until late in the
final period. Then they put on another passing attack
that connected for a second touchdown, with Herber
again on the throwing side and Laws, Gantenbein and
Grove playing the leading roles on the receiving end. 
This time the extra point kick was blocked, but a few
moments later the Bays made their margin safe by
pushing the Cardinals back and picked up two points on
an automatic safety. Chicago's team made only one
serious scoring threat. It came in the first period after
Handler had blocked Bruder's attempted quick kick. The
Cardinals got to the Packer 12 yard line but after two
plays had failed to gain, they fumbled, Gantenbein
recovering to give the Bays possession again. Later in
the next period Greene passed to Smith for a 28 yard
gain to the Packer 40 yard mark but the Packers then
smothered the Chicagoans at that point and took the 
ball on downs.
The first Bay touchdown came as a result of a perfect
play early in the opening period. Herber faded back from
his own 31 yard line and tossed to Hinkle near the north
sidelines. Clarke outran Murphy, Cardinal halfback, to
catch the ball on the 40 yard line but still had Pardonner
to contend with. He raced straight for the Card safety
man and just as Pardonner was about to lunge for him,
Clarke sidestepped neatly to the right, cut in towards
the center of the field and sped the remaining distance
to the goal line. Pardonner followed him down the field
but didn't have a chance of catching the fleet Packer
fullback. Bob Monnett then came into the game and
kicked for the extra point as Grove held the ball and the
Bays had a seven point lead. Through the second and
third periods it was a dogged fight with neither side
having a decided advantage. The Bays were held in
their own territory most of the second period, except
after Laws intercepted a Cardinal pass and returned it
to midfield. In the third period, punting with the wind the
Cardinals kept the play mostly in Packer territory but
they couldn't gain through Green Bay's line or pass over
the backs, so were not dangerous. Field recovered what
was ruled a Green Bay fumble on the Packer 32 on one
occasion but that was as far as the Cardinals could get.
Soon after the start of the final period, the Packers
opened with their passes again, clicking on three in
succession for a touchdown, traveling from their own 26
yard line down the field and across the goal. Herber 
faded back from the 26 and got off the first toss to Joe
Laws, who made a spectacular catch over his head on
the 39 yard line. Joe raced down with Russell at his
heels. On the 13 yard mark, the Cardinal back finally
caught Laws, pulling him down from behind. Herber 
then tossed a flat pass to Milt Gantenbein and the big
Packer end pulled the ball down on the three yard line.
It was first and ten from that point. One line play failed.
On the second Herber raced to the right on what looked
like a sweeping end run. Roger Grove cut across the 
line of scrimmage and in the far southeast corner made
a great catch of the ball thrown by Herber for a score.
Grove tried to kick for the extra point but it was blocked.
A few moments later, Russell, back to punt near his 
own goal line, fumbled. He picked up the ball and tried
to kick it despite the fact Green Bay's men were 
charging in on him. The ball hit Greene, another Card
back, squarely in the face, bounced back beyond the
end zone for an automatic safety, giving the Packers
two points.

Sunday October 21st 1934 (at Green Bay)
OCT 22 (Green Bay) - They were hitting for "keeps" in the Cardinal-Packer game here Sunday. Many men had the wind knocked out of them in body contacts. Bruises and sprains were numerous...Paul Pardonner, the former Purdue quarterback, looked like a midget
alongside of other Cardinal players. He is not more than 
5 feet,6 inches tall, but is fast and shifty...Lavvie Dilweg
came in for the last play of the first half, and made the
tackle after a punt. On the first play of the third quarter
he pulled Hinchman down behind the line of scrimmage.
..Joe Kurth played a fine game at tackle for the Bays,
getting more than his share of tackles. Michalske's play
also was impressive...The Cardinals got possession of
the ball on what was ruled a fumble on one occasion.
Monnett tried to toss a short pass over the line of
scrimmage. Just as the ball left his hand, his arm was
hit. They ruled it a fumble, Field recovering for the Cards
...Jorgenson and Russell came together on one play 
that knocked both out. Jorgenson charged down the
field and nailed Russell hard just as he received a punt.
Both were shaken up but neither hurt seriously...
Isaacson nearly broke Herber in two on a tackle after
Arnie had received a punt. The big Cardinal tackle who
weighs 275 smacked straight into Herber but the Bay
player bounced right up.
OCT 22 (Cincinnati) - A conference of officials resulted
in the granting of permission to St. Louis interests to
purchase the Cincinnati franchise in the National league
if and when the Cincinnati club wishes to sell. Myron
Greentree, general manager of the Cincinnati football
team, said the franchise will remain in Cincinnati for the
time being, but that if the club loses money on later
home games this season it will be sold. The approval of
the possible sale was voted at a conference attended by
Greentree, Joe F. Carr, league president, and Chili
Walsh, St. Louis sports promoter.
OCT 23 (Green Bay) - The Chicago Bears and Green 
Bay Packers will meet for the last time this season at
Chicago Sunday, and the contest will be a do-or-die
effort on the part of the Bays. Some Packer fans, who
are believing that the Packers and Bears are scheduled
to meet again in December as in former seasons, have
made their plans accordingly, but the schedules of the
two teams show that next Sunday's meeting will be the
last of the year...PRAYERS OF DETROIT: The Packers
will enter the contest in good condition, despite the
severe shaking up they received at the hands of the
Cardinals last Sunday, and the prayers of the Detroit
Lions will go with them. Detroit, after pounding Brooklyn
28 to 0 last night, will meet the weak Cincinnati team at
Portsmouth, and is banking on the first defeat of the
Bears to give the former Spartans an undisputed grip on
first place in the western division. Indications are that
Coach E.L. Lambeau will shoot Arnie Herber right at the
Bears, following the Bay veteran's sensational forward
passing of recent games. Herber has been slapping the
ball on a dime, his passing leading to both touchdowns
against the Cardinals, when he completed six out of
eight tosses...GOLDENBERG MUCH BETTER: Very
likely Buckets Goldenberg, blocking quarterback, will
make his first start in several weeks for the Packers.
Goldenberg injured his leg and spent several days at St.
Mary's hospital. Recently he has been parked on the
Packer bench, but the injured member is now in good
condition and the husky back is expected to see action
against the Packers' most traditional rivals. Although
critics of the Bears have predicted every week that the
club was on the verge of a sensational crackup. George
Halas' team has rolled over all league opposition this
season, apparently as strong if not stronger than ever.
The Bears' great line play has been the talk of the pro
football circles, in addition to the excellent all around
work of Beattie Feathers, former All-America halfback of
the Tennessee Volunteers...MANY WILL FOLLOW 
TEAM: Special train excursions out of Green Bay plus
the continuance of good weather, probably will result in
a large number of Packer fans following the team on its
most crucial road appearance. After meeting the Bears
at Wrigley field Sunday, the Packers will head into
eastern territory for the decisive lap of the 1934 season,
leaving the Bears and Detroit locked in a death grip on
western gridirons. Bay fans well remember how the
Bears slid into the championship by taking advantage
of the Green Bay-Portsmouth rivalry in 1932, and they
believe that there is a chance for football history to 
repeat itself, provided the Bears and Lions cut each
other's throats.
OCT 23 (Green Bay) - Coach E.L Lambeau of the Bays
contends that the official score of the exhibition game
between the Packers and Bears in Milwaukee last
Wednesday should have been 10 to 7. He says that
Head Linesman George Laurie called the Bears offside
when the Packers tried a kick for the extra point as the
game ended. Under National league rules, when a 
defensive team is offside on a try from placement, the
kicking team automatically gets the point, the coach
says. There was so much confusion on the field after
the game, what with Laurie getting clipped on the jaw
and a scramble of fans that Referee Meyer Morris of
Rock Island didn't rule on the point at that time. Morris
told us Sunday that he thought that because the Bears
were offside, they should be penalized half the distance
to the goal line and the Packers given another chance 
to kick the point. Then he adds, that because Green 
Bay was not given another chance to try for the point,
they should get it. We can't understand how he can
give the Bays the point that if he believes they should
try the kick over again but Lambeau's version of the rule
probably is correct and Morris misinformed on the rule,
which would make the score 10 to 7...Officials at the 
game Sunday between the Packers and Cardinals were
more alert to call penalties after hearing the cry raised
after the Milwaukee game. It was the best seen here this year. If the Packers can get as good work from the men who officiate at Chicago next Sunday when they meet the Bears again, they have a good chance of winning. The Cardinals have a mighty fine ball club but their new backs are not quite alert enough on pass defense. Some are too small to guard the big men who come down the field to take passes. Iron Mike Mikulak wasn't able to show much against the Bays Sunday, despite his all-American rating. He hits hard, but we cannot see where he rates in the class of a Nagurski and a Nevers.
OCT 23 (Chicago) - When the Bears and Green Bay Packers meet in the second game on the National league schedule at Wrigley field Sunday, it will be the thirty-first renewal of their rivalry that began in 1921. The feud is second only to that of the Bears and Cardinals in age, but involves more games. The 24 to 10 victory of the Bears at Green Bay in the opener for the north siders Sept. 23 was the thirteenth registered by the locals to match the record of the Packers. Four contests have been deadlocks and the Bears have registered a total of 234 points to 216 by the Wisconsin team...PACKERS SHOW IMPROVEMENT: Since that early season defeat, however, the Packers have steadily improved, as was demonstrated by their showing against the Bears in an exhibition game at Milwaukee Oct. 17, which the Bears won 10 to 6. While the Bears were beating Cincinnati last Sunday, 41 to 7, the Packers, having previously beaten the Cincinnati lads 41 to 0, were beating the Cardinals 15 to 0 to bring their standing in the western section of the circuit up to 4 won and 2 lost, which keeps them a championship possibility.
OCT 24 (Chicago) - Club physicians notified Coach George Halas of the Bears yesterday that Gene Ronzani, halfback; George Musso, tackle, and Bill Karr, end, who were injured last Wednesday night in the Green Bay game at Milwaukee, will be ready to start against the Packers at Wrigley field Sunday. Johnny Sisk, reserve halfback who has a knee injury, will not be available for at least another week, Halas said.
OCT 24 (Chicago) - The recent splendid showing of the Green Bay Packers, who will meet the Chicago Bears at Wrigley field here next Sunday, has caused George Halas, Bears' coach and owner, no little consternation - or at least so said Halas here today. "The Packers looked good against us in Milwaukee," he said, "and my scouts tell me they played whirlwind ball against both Cincinnati and the Cardinals. The Bears, undefeated this season, regard next Sunday's game as one of the most crucial on their schedule - a contest which may mark the turning point of the 1934 race in the NFL."...AIMS FOR THREE STRAIGHT: Halas indicated that the Bears are in fine shape for the contest, and intend to make it three straight over the Packers. "The young Green Bay players, such as Laws, Schwammel, Jones and others, seem to be getting the knack of professional football," Halas continued, "and I'm afraid the Packers are going to be tough for anybody during the rest of the season." The Bears expect the largest crowd of the season for Sunday's game, and are making preparations to accommodate it. The team is pleased with its recent scoring power, which lifted Jack Manders into the first place of the National league individual list, and protected the Chicagoans' unmarred record at the top of the circuit...CARR MAY ATTEND: Officials for the game have not been announced but the Bears expect a statement from Joe F. Carr, Columbus, Ohio, league president, within a few days. Carr may attend the Packer-Bear game, Halas stated. With Detroit facing the weak Cincinnati team at Portsmouth Sunday, the Bears realize that their position at the top of the league depends upon a win over the Packers, and this they hope to accomplish through the skill which lies in Mr. Manders' educated toe...TAKING NO CHANCE: "We'll kick every time we get within sight of the goal," Halas said. "We are taking no chances with fumble or other misplays, and I'm confident that Manders will be able to pile enough points from placement to keep us comfortably ahead of the Packers." Herber probably will be thrown at the Bears right at the start of the game, the Bear mentor believes. "Herber's recent sensational forward passing lead us to believe," he added, "that the young Green Bay halfback will start tossing the footballs as soon as the game gets underway." He indicated that the Bears are drilling on defense to check Herber's tosses.
OCT 24 (New York) - Every one of the ten teams in the NFL averages over 200 pounds with the league average player scaling about 204 pounds. The heaviest team average of the league is that of the Boston Redskins, who average 211 pounds. The distinction of being the smallest player in major league football goes to Willis (Little Giant) Smith, quarterback of the New York Giants. Smith, former Idaho players, scales only 147 pounds but has been an outstanding player in his appearances in competition. This is his first season in the National league. Ted Isaacson, another newcomer to the professional loop, is the heaviest player of the circuit. The former Washington tackle now with the Chicago Cardinals scales 273 pounds, ten pounds more than George Musso, sensational tackle of the Chicago Bears from Milliken, and Glenn (Turk) Edwards, former Washington State tackle and all-league lineman of the Boston Redskins...BEARS AVERAGE 207 POUNDS: The heaviest team after the Boston squad is the Chicago Bears, world champions for the past two years, who average 207 pounds, just a fraction more than the Brooklyn Dodgers, who have a remarkably heavy line that includes Harold Ely of Nebraska, a 260 pounder at tackle, and Herman Hickman, 250 pound all-league guard from Tennessee. The lightest teams are the Philadelphia Eagles and the Cardinals, who despite the presence of Isaacson on the club, only scale 201 pounds. Rivaling Smith for lightest honors is Gil Lefebvre of Cincinnati who scales only 156 pounds and Harp Vaughn of Pittsburgh, who also is under 160 pounds.
OCT 25 (New York) - The performance of Earl (Dutch) Clark of the Detroit Lions against Brooklyn Monday shot him up into the National Pro Football league scoring race as a rival for the Chicago Bears' aces, Beattie Feathers and Jack Mander. The Chicagoans share the lead with 37 points each while Clark is only one point behind. Feathers, with six touchdowns to his credit, held the ground gaining lead through the past week by a wide margin. He has picked up 625 yards in 61 times he has carried the ball. His nearest rivals are several hundred yards behind. Manders' total includes 12 points after touchdowns and three field goals. Bob Monnett of Green Bay is one ahead of him in booting the three pointers. Arnold (Flash) Herber of Green Bay continues as the most effective passer, having completed 22 tosses out of 45 for a total gain of 431 yards. He also has the longest complete pass, a 69 yard heave to Clark Hinkle.
OCT 25 (Green Bay) - With fire in every formation, the Green Bay Packers are winding up a strenuous week of drills in preparation for their crucial National league contest against Chicago Bears at Wrigley field Sunday. Although defeated twice by the Bears this season, one of the lickings being in an exhibition tilt at Milwaukee, the Packers appear convinced that Sunday's fracas will be a last ditch battle for championship honors in the professional league's western division, and they are leaving no chore undone in an effort to reach the peak of their effectiveness against the title holders...BREAKS MAY DECIDE: All season sports critics have been expecting the Bears to crack up, but thus far the sprightly Bruins have displayed no inclination to carry out this prediction. In fact, the Chicagoans are playing at the top of their game, but the Packers will carry the fight to the Bears in an attempt to force the breaks which may decide the contest. A special brace has been rigged up for Buckets Goldenberg so that Coach E.L. Lambeau is assured the service of his hard cracking blocking quarterback for Sunday's game. Goldenberg has been out for practice every day this week and appears to be in his usual fine form, although all precautions are being taken to protect his injured leg...AT KNICKERBOCKER HOTEL: The Packers will make their headquarters at the Knickerbocker hotel during their stay in Chicago. At the present time all members of the team seem to be in good shape, as players who were shaken up  by the Cardinals last Sunday have snapped back into form in fast style, placing further emphasis upon the inspired attitude which the Packers are building up for the all-important battle. The Green Bay Football corporation is still awaiting word from Joe F. Carr, Columbus, Ohio, concerning Sunday's officials. It has been decided definitely that Bobby Cahn will referee, bu there is some doubt as to the other officials...PLEASED WITH HERBER: Lambeau has made no effort to hid his pleasure in Arnie Herber's fine showing during recent weeks, and he intends to throw the veteran sharpshooter right at the Bears. After playing only fair ball during  the early days of the season, Herber had been hitting cuspidors at 40 yards in practice, and his unerring arm has greatly aided the Bays in their recent appearances. Lambeau also has placed extra stress on his team's punting, as long distance boots will be essential if the Packers are to gain ground against the Bears. Beattie Feathers, the Chicago team's new backfield sensation, has been slamming the ball 
far and wide all season. All roads will lead to Chicago
Saturday and Sunday, as the game will be the last
appearance of the Packers and Bears on the gridiron
this season, barring possible post-season activity. A
brisk ticket sale for the Bear-Packer game is reported
at the C.C.C. office, indicating that the Bays will be
well backed in their trip to the Windy City. In addition to
reserved seats on sale here, a number of other tickets 
in the grandstand tickets also are available.
OCT 25 (Green Bay) - Keith Molesworth, Chicago Bears
quarterback, characterized the Green Bay Packers as
the toughest football team the Bears have met this year
in a radio interview with Bob Elson of the WGN station
last night. Asked about games played this year, 
Molesworth replied that no team gave the Bears as 
much trouble as the Green Bay Packers. He added that
Sunday's game with the former champions probably be
even harder than the two previous games and that the
Bears would have all they can do to win. "The Packers
have one of the best teams in the league," he said.
"When we meet them Sunday we are expecting the
hardest game of the year. We will have plenty of trouble
OCT 25 (New York) - With almost half of their schedule
completed, the Chicago Bears and Detroit Tigers still
pace the NFL this week as the two undefeated teams in
the league. Once again they also lead the league
respectively in offensive and defensive play. The Bears
have compiled a total of 155 points for the best offense
record, while the Detroit team remains unscored upon
for the year. Close behind the Bears for offensive honors
came the Green Bay Packers, who have a total of 103
points against 39 for their opponents. The Bears are in
second place as far as defensive work is concerned,
having had 27 pounds scored upon them. In the cellar
positions, the Cincinnati team has now boosted its
scoring column into two figures with 10 points, while it
has had 141 points scored against it. Pittsburgh is a
close second, having scored 41 points against 129 for
the opponents. The New York Giants, who are leading
the eastern division, have scored 67 points to 61 for
their opponents.
OCT 25 (Chicago) - Four of the outstanding new players in the NFL will be on display Sunday when the Bears and Green Bay Packers meet at Wrigley field. In the backfield, Beattie Feathers of the Bears, ground gaining leader of the league, will vie with Joe Laws, who has been a big factor in the success of the Green Bay club this year. In the line the giant Ted Rosequist of the Bears will face Ade Schwammel, who won fame at Oregon State. These four men were high in the voting in the national poll conducted to name the college all-star squad that met the Bears last August. In Jack Manders the Bears now have the scoring leader of the league with Feathers a close second. Manders has registered 45 points on 3 touchdowns, 3 field goal and 18 points after touchdown. Manders' try for the extra point that hit the upright last Sunday in the game with Cincinnati was his only miss since he joined the Bears at the start of the 1933 season. In two years the former Minnesota fullback has counted 35 points after touchdown. Feathers' scoring has been via the touchdown route exclusively, his total being 36 points.
OCT 26 (Green Bay) - Hopeful of a victory which would put them in a more favorable position in the National Professional Football league championship race the Green Bay Packers leave tomorrow for Chicago and a game with the Bears. The Packers have played the Bears twice this season, losing both times, one, however, was an exhibition tilt. The Bears, champions last yer, are undefeated this season. Coach Curly Lambeau expressed himself as greatly pleased with the recent showing of Arnie Herber, the Bays' forward passing star, and said he believes he has rounded into shape after a slow start. He probably will see action in the Bear game, to be played Sunday. Lambeau is planning an aerial attack. Buckets Goldenberg, forced to remain out of the last three games because of injuries, is in shape and will be in the lineup.
watching the high school game at West's field last night expressed the sentiment of the squad in four words. "Can you beat the Bears?" he was asked. "You think we aren't?" he snarled, and two other Packers snapped their heads in agreement...BEARS ALSO KEYED: The Bears are reported keyed to a high pitch, but words from Chicago indicates that they are a bit jittery, too, as they believe their luck isn't slated to hold indefinitely. Although the Bruins were supposed to crack up early this season, they have been playing super ball, and thus far have rolled through six National league opponents, plus an exhibition affair with the Packers, without a defeat. The tremendous power the Packers have been grooming in recent weeks, fortified by the professional experience the new players have acquired, will be hurled at the Chicagoans from the starting whistle. Joe Laws, his aching shoulder healed; Hank Bruder, still carrying a decorative patch over his nose; Buckets Goldenberg, that troublesome knee encased in a brace - and the other injured Packers all will forget their mishaps Sunday and smash at the Bear line with a fervor born of college days...PLAYERS FEEL HATRED: Adding to their natural desire to clamber a notch higher in the league race, and their football instinct to fight until the last whistle, is the personal animosity which the Packers feel toward their most traditional rivals. Half a dozen members of the squad welcome the chance to dive at certain husky persons who draw their paychecks from George Halas, and there will no punches pulled when the backs rip at the forward walls tomorrow afternoon. The Packers bundled onto their train today after reading a weather forecast which included "killing frost". That expressed their sentiment very well and more than one Green Bay player grinned as he predicted a cold reception for the Bears. The kickoff will be at 2:15 o'clock, and probably 20,000 people or more will be in the stands before that time. The game will be broadcast over stations WGN, Chicago; WTMJ, Milwaukee, and WHBY, Green Bay, all starting about 2 o'clock.
OCT 27 (Green Bay) - The Chicago Cardinal suffered a 15 to 0 reversal at the hands of the Green Bay Packers last Sunday at Green Bay. It was a "he man's" combat and three players from each club suffered major injuries. Attending physicians worked overtime...Cincinnati scored on the Bears but that is about all the Redlegs did as the House of Halas romped off with a 41 to 7 victory. Jack Manders led the Chicagoans' attack as he made two touchdowns and added five extra points...Cliff Battles, ace of the Boston club, plunged across the goal line for a touchdown in the third quarter of the Philadelphia game and this lone marker was the margin of victory for the Dietz-men over Lud Wray's Eagles...The New York Giants continued their victory string by taking Pittsburgh into camp to the tune of 17 to 7 in a spirited engagement at the Polo grounds. Sortet scored for the Pirates in the fourth frame and Pop Kelsch converted...Willis Smith, 149-pound quarterback of the New York Giants, is the toast of the Broadway pro football followers. The "half pint" back has added a lot of color to Tim Mara's outfit. Smith is a brilliant runner in the open field...Kawal is seeing a lot of service at center for the Bears. His aggressive play appears to have won him the first string call over Ookie Miller and Bert Pearson, two snapperbacks who have been with the Bruins for quite a while...Jap Douds, one of the pro league veterans, is still playing good football for Pittsburgh...Originally a tackle, Douds has moved over to guard and he is right at home. Douds has played with Providence, Portsmouth and the Chicago Cards...Horse Edwards, Boston tackle, seemed to be headed for another all-American pro berth. The husky lineman has been a standout in every game this season. Edwards is faster than ever and has been raising havoc with opponents' backs...Ellstrom, an Oklahoma product, who was cast aside by Boston, has made the grade with Philadelphia and is being used as starting fullback. Ellstrom hits the line hard and has speed enough to go places when he is shaken loose...George Halas, boss of the Bears, had Chicago women as his guests at the Cincinnati game and some 5,000 of them enjoyed the Ladies' Day treat. As a feature of the program, the Windy City Bruins raised the 1933 championship flag...A storm seems to be brewing over officials in the western loop of the circuit. Several of the clubs have complained to President Joe F. Carr, and it is understood that the circuit head may revamp some future assignments...Charlie Bidwill, owner of the Chicago Cardinals, is taking his pro football pretty seriously. Bidwill sits on the bench at every game and he always has a glad hand or a pat on the back for his players to improve the team morale...The Detroit-Cincinnati game scheduled for Redland this Sunday, has been switched to Portsmouth, O. It will be a "homecoming" tilt for the Lions as last year they did their footballing under the Portsmouth Spartan colors...One of the new officials working in the east is George Vergara, former Notre Dame gridder. Vergara's work has drawn favorable comment from both coaches and players. He had one year of pro ball, playing end for Green Bay in 1925...There is considerable talk about the transfer of the Cincinnati franchise to St. Louis. Owners of the Reds have dropped considerable cash in the past two years and it is quite likely that they will see fit to sell out...Continuing their home stat, the Giants will clash with Philadelphia this Sunday. Coach Steve Owen has visions of another eastern loop championship and he has no intentions of letting the Eagles spoil his title hopes...One of the feature intersectional engagements of the season will be played at Boston this weekend when the Redskins lock horns with the Chicago Cards. There should be plenty of action as the teams loom even up...Pittsburgh is going into Brooklyn on Sunday hungry for a win and the Dodgers will have to step pretty lively to keep the bacon at home as the Rooney hirelings have been playing much improved ball in recent games.
OCT 27 (Green Bay) - Champ Seibold, giant lineman from Oshkosh who came to the Green Bay Packers this year after being declared ineligible for all time by the Western Conference because of difficulties attending his transfer from Ripon college to the University of Wisconsin a year ago, has been placed on the retired list for the rest of the season, it was announced Friday by Coach E.L. Lambeau. This action was necessitated by objection of an eastern club in the National Professional league to Seibold's playing with the Bays in violation of a league rule prohibiting any player performing in the league before his class has graduated. It was explained that Seibold would have been a senior at the state university this year, thus making him ineligible for league competition until next season. Lambeau has made several efforts to place the Oshkosh youth with a non-league team for the remainder of the current season. Seibold will be asked to report to the Bays next fall, however.
OCT 28 (Milwaukee Sentinel - Stoney McGlynn) - IF.
And a couple a' more IFS. That's Sunday''s NFL game
between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears
at Wrigley Field, Chicago. A big IF is: Will Arnie Herber
continue his fine play of the last three games, most of
all, his passing? IF so, the Packers are going to hand
the Bears their first defeat of the season. Great passing,
such as Arnie has turned out, in his last three starts,
will beat the Bears for there are a couple of spots in the
Bear secondary that are none too strong on aerial
defenses. And to remedy these defensive weaknesses
Coach George Halas will have to take out two of his
most effective weapons on offense. It's aq question of
George robbing Paul to pay Peter and the way the Bays
have improved of late no team in the league can do that
and beat 'em. Another big IF is. Will the Packers enter
the game confident they can win or with the hang-dog
look of a team that's out to take a licking. My idea is
that they willl enter the fray confident they can turn the
trick and IF they do they can win with Herber's passing.
But the biggest IF is: We wonder IF the officials will call
'em for the good of pro football or for the good of the
BEARS. That's a pretty harsh statement to make, after
watching some of the insipid officiating in the league the
past two years we're convinced that it's time to take the
risk of being called a "squawker". In their first meeting
the Bays were outclassed save in but few instances. In their second meeting, here in Milwaukee, the Bears won, but were given the toughest kind of battle. Two Packer passes, with the receiver behind the secondary, missed by inches, both hitting the fingertips of the receivers. Had either of these passes connected the Bays would have been in command and could have won rather handily instead of being on the short end of a 10 to 6 score. The last minute rally of the Bays in which they passed their way down the field to a touchdown proves the Bears' most vulnerable point is in the air and it proved to the Packers that they could go to town with intelligent leadership on the field, good passing and a ground attack that can function as soon as the defense is opened. So, IF Herber's passing is up to snuff; IF the Bays go into battle with the idea they're going to win; and IF the officiating is clear cut the Bays will cop. We're almost sure the first two IFS will be answered to our satisfaction, but that last IF is an IF.
OCT 28 (Milwaukee Journal) - The Packers and Bears will play the third and final game of their 1934 series at Wrigley field, Chicago, Sunday afternoon. Chicago won the two earlier games. In a league game in Green Bay early in the season, the Bears, led by the flashy Beattie Feathers, won 24 to 10, and in an exhibition game at State Fair park last week they repeated, again with Feathers as the spearhead of the attack, 10 to 6. Sunday's game has double importance for both clubs. Aside from the bitter feeling between then, the Bears must win to remain in the tie with Detroit for first place and the Packers must win to retain even a slim mathematical chance of finishing on top. Detroit has a victory Sunday practically clinched in the game with the woefully weak Cincinnati Reds. The Packers have lost two games already and they can't stand to lose another. In Green Bay hopes have run higher for a victory Sunday than they have before either of the other games. The experience that such new boys as Laws, Schwimmel, Norgaard and Jorgenson have acquired and the return to form of Arnie Herber, who has recently done some remarkable passing, has buoyed up Packer followers to the point at which they think their team has an even chance to win. Both clubs will be at full strength. Buckets Goldenberg, whose injured knee kept him out of the lineup in the sensational game with the Cardinals last week, has worked out with the club this week and will be ready to step into the blocking quarterback hole. Laws and Jorgenson, injured last Sunday, have both fully recovered. The Bears had a comparatively easy time of it with the Reds last week and came out of the fray without injuries of any kind. The Packers will return to Green Bay after the game and leave Thursday for their swing through the east. They will play at Boston November 4 and at New York November 11 before returning west to play the Chicago Cardinals at State Fair park November 18. 
OCT 26 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Rotary club enjoyed a talk and song program presented by three members of the Packer football squad, Lon Evans, Joe Laws and Milton Gantenbein, at its weekly noon luncheon meeting in the Attic room of the Beaumont hotel Thursday. They were introduced by V.C. Lewellen, who said that he though the Packer chances of taking the National league pennant this year were very good. Lon Evans, in pleasing southern accents,
said that the Packers have yet to meet the Bears, New
York and Detroit, and since the Bears have to meet
Detroit and New York twice, he thinks the Packers
ought to finish well up in the percentage column, even
on top of the heap...BALL CLUB BETTER: "Our ball
club," said Evans, "has increased 100 percent in
effectiveness during the past 30 days. Those who see
the Packers in action against the Bears this Sunday
will be watching a different ball club than the one that
has been beaten by the Bruins in the two previous
engagements. We have more snap and pep, and
believe me we want to eat those Bears up." Speaking
of the last game played with the Bears in exhibition at
Milwaukee, Evans remarked: "The Bears were offside
much of the time. Red Bultman tells me that time and
time again Kawal, Bear center, was all over him many
times before the play was actually started. We should
have got that extra point, for the Bears were offsides,
which would automatically give us the point. It will be
considerably different this time, for we have plenty of
zip in the club. We are working better together. We
have more teamwork, and you fellows know how much
teamwork counts in a football game.".HARMONY FOR
CLUB: When questioned concerning the comparative
rating of professional and collegiate football, Laws
replied that they could not be fairly compared. He said
in the Bear-All Star contest in Chicago during August,
the pros had to play under collegiate rules and were
handicapped in that they did not work with so much
precision and teamwork, since they had not been
together long enough to develop harmony. Lewellen, in
introducing the song act of Gantenbein and Laws, said
that harmony is a great thing on a football club. The 
two young Packer stars sang several popular songs,
and if this duet harmonizes as well on the ball field 
next Sunday as they did in the dining room, the Bears
will have plenty of football to play.
OCT 26 (Green Bay) - With their morale at its best of 
the year, and the squad nearly at full strength, the
Green Bay Packers will leave at 2:45 o'clock tomorrow
afternoon over the Northwestern road for Chicago, where
they will meet the Bears, National league champions, at
Wrigley field Sunday afternoon. The team will arrive at
Chicago about 9 o'clock tomorrow night, and will
headquarter at the Knickerbocker hotel on the north side...SEIBOLD IS OUT: Because an eastern National league club protested his use, Champ Seibold, giant tackle from Oshkosh, has been placed on the retired list for the balance of the season, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. A National league rule specifies that no college player may perform in the league until after his class graduates. Seibold would have been a senior this year at the University of Wisconsin. Lambeau is disappointed in the turn of events, as he regards the big Badger product as a real line prospect. Seibold will receive instructions to report again to the Green Bay squad next fall. Indications from the rival squads are that the game will into the air during the early periods, and stay there. With Herber carrying the brunt of the Green Bay aerial attack, and practically every back on the Bears' team opposing him, the air should be filled with footballs at Wrigley field tomorrow. The Packer backfield will not be at its best as Buckets Goldenberg has not fully recovered from a painful leg injury. Hank Bruders's eyelid, which was messed up in the Cardinal game last Sunday, still is decorated with a large patch, and the injury may keep the fullback on the sidelines...LAWS MAY START: Joe Laws has been working out all week despite a shoulder injury he sustained Sunday, and may get the call in Sunday's starting lineup. The flashy Iowa halfback has been looking better in every game, and Lambeau is anxious to turn him loose against the Bears. Word from Chicago indicates that the Bears are more jittery about the contest than any previous game this year. The Packers have given them the hardest battles of the season in their two previous meetings, and the Chicagoans know that the Bays are set to make the supreme effort of the year.
OCT 26 (Green Bay) - When the Bears take on the Packers at spacious Wrigley field Sunday you should be there. Why? Because it will be the best football you have ever seen! That's taking in a lot of territory, but we firmly believe that the statement will prove true. Two teams that are really "hot" will go at each other's throat in no uncertain manner. The Bears have beaten the Packers twice this year. They have deserved victories, because they played the better football. But you can't convince any member of the Packer team that the Bears have a better team. They (the Packers) point to the breaks of the Chicagoans have received to win in recent meetings. They can't see how the Bears can continue to get them. It will be "shoot the works" for the Packers. They'll toss everything they have - and they have plenty - at the Bears from the opening whistle. You probably will see more good football than ever was on display in a game before - whether it be pro or college. Games between the Bears and Packers and between the Cardinals and Green Bay have been unusually hard fought this year. Seven players of the Bear and Cardinal teams who are on the injured list as a result of skirmishes with the Bay squads can attest to that fact. They'll both hit "for keeps" as there's plenty of personal animosity besides league laurels at stake. We believe the Packers will beat the Bears this time out. We predicted Packer victories on two previous occasions, but were disappointed. This time, however, it looks like we'll have a winner on that score. The Bay men have pointed for this game for more than a week. They'll be on edge to play their best football of the year. And if they're at their best, they'll beat the Bears, providing, naturally, that they get impartial officiating. If you want a core for the Bear-Packer game, make it Green Bay 14, Chicago 10.
OCT 26 (Columbus, OH) - The six-game winning streak of the Chicago Bears, world champions, is in danger Sunday when the Green Bay Packers invade Wrigley field for their second NFL encounter with the titleholders and current western division leaders. The New York Giants, pacesetters in the eastern division and titleholders of that section in 1933, will meet the Philadelphia Eagles in New York for another league encounter. Boston will be the first eastern appearance of the Chicago Cardinals as the Redskins battle to keep pace with the New York eleven, while in Brooklyn the Dodgers encounter the rugged Pittsburgh Pirates, who are piling up a formidable record as a forward passing team. The other National league game sends the unbeaten Detroit Lions against Cincinnati with a chance to take the lead if the Packers upset the Bears....NO TIE GAMES: The big edge which the offense holds in professional football is well illustrated by the lack of a single tie game in 28 contests, and the proficiency of the forward pass under the professional circuit rule which permits throwing of aerials from any point up the line of scrimmage. One in every three passes thrown by teams of the league this season has been completed. Team statistics today show 243 completed in 784 tosses. The Chicago Bears hold a large edge in ground gaining with 2,063 yards in six games, their closest rivals the Pittsburgh Pirates, who top the eastern teams offensively, with 1,775 yards in eight games.
OCT 26 (Chicago) - Chicago's two NFL football teams spent yesterday at Wrigley field preparing for Sunday's game which start both off on the last and most formidable half of their schedules. The Bears, twice champions of the league, meet Green Bay at Wrigley field Sunday, and the Cardinals, severely crippled as a result of their defeat by the Packers last week, go to Boston...BEARS FEAR PASSES: The Bears' first team reported at full strength when Coach Halas called practice at 9 o'clock yesterday morning, only John Sisk, reserve halfback, being unable to participate in the long drill against Green Bay passes. Two victories over Green Bay have not served to lessen the tension in the Bear camp. The Packers, off to a poor start, were a greatly improved team when the Bears beat them, 10 to 6, at Milwaukee a week ago. In that game they barely missed two touchdowns when pass receivers fumbled the ball in the open. These same passes clicked twice against the Cardinals and provided the margin of the Packers' victory last Sunday. With Arnold Herber, the league's leading passer, doing the pitching and Grove receiving, the Bears anticipate anything but a pleasant afternoon.
OCT 28 (Chicago) - One of the bitterest rivalries in football will have its 32nd renewal at Wrigley field this afternoon when the improved Green Bay Packers come to Chicago for their third and last game of the season with the Bears, National league champions. Favoritism, if any, in this game belongs to the Bears, who won the two previous games this year by scores of 24 to 10 and 10 to 6. The second of these was not a league contest. Five thousand Green Bay rooters, however, came to town last night with a band prepared to celebrate victory and no amount of reasoning could convince them that defeat was a possibility...PACKER HAVE NEW HOPE: Green Bay's confidence in the face of two previous beatings by the Bears springs from the Packers' recent performances, in which they ran wild against Cincinnati and whipped the Cardinals, and from the fact that the invaders are in perfect physical condition for the first time this season. The chief threat to the Bears' undefeated record in the National league is a powerful and diversified offense featuring the hard, shifty running of Joe Laws, former Iowa star, and the passing of Arnold Herber. Herber is the leading passer in the league, operating at a greater degree of efficiency than Harry Newman of New York, who completed passes at will against the Bears in the championship game last fall. Herber has made good on 22 passes out of 45 attempts for a total gain of 341 yards...MANDERS ACE OF BEARS: His presence in the Green Bay lineup has been the chief reason for the daily drill on defense which the Bears have undergone this week. If Herber's passes can be stopped, the Bears feel they will be able to gain sufficient ground with Beattie Feathers, the league's leading yardage reaper, and Bronko Nagurski to get the ball in position for Jack Manders' field goals. Manders' kicking continues to be the Bears' chief threat against all league rivals, an ace in the hole which provided the measure of victory in the last game with the Packers. Victory is imperative to the Bears if they are to remain at the top of the western division. Detroit, which is tied with the Bears for first place, plays Cincinnati today and is almost certain of accomplishing its seventh consecutive triumph of the year. Defeat of the Bears would face them with the necessity of beating Detroit twice at the end of the season after playing the strongest eastern division teams. Detroit has an easy schedule until it plays the Bears on Thanksgiving day and the Sunday after.
OCT 28 (Chicago) - Professional football rivals for the championship since the beginning of the NFL, the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers will clash at Wrigley field this afternoon, and WGN will present an exclusive broadcast of the fray. There always has been bitter rivalry between the two teams. In the early days of the league, Green Bay boasted championship teams. Then the Bears built up and last year won the title. This season Green Bay is out to rewin its crown. The game starts at 2:15 o'clock, but Bob Elson will start the WGN broadcast at 2 o'clock.
OCT 27 (Chicago) - The windswept space between the Wrigley field battered posts tomorrow afternoon will see one of the greatest football games of all time, and Green Bay's participants in the event already are spinning for Chicago. The Packers, fired to a peak unknown since their championship days, boarded a C. & N.W. train at 2:45 o'clock this afternoon, growling their promises of a bitter gridiron struggle before the largest crowd which has witnessed a pro football struggle in Chicago this season. One husky halfback
