(BOSTON) - Displaying all the fire and light of the Packer championship teams, Coach Curly Lambeau's crippled aggregation rose to its greatest heights of the 1934 season here on Sunday when they administered a 10 to 0 lacing to the high priced Boston Redskins on a rain swept field before a crowd of 12,383 paid admissions. Minus the services of Milt Gantenbein, Roger Grove and Bob Monnett, the Packers clicked on "all eleven" from the opening whistle until the closing gun. And as the Bostonese sloshed their way out of the park, one of the spectators was heard to remark to the other, "A fighting team can't be beat." And that tells the story in the nutshell. Outweighed considerably by the bulky Boston line, the Packers simply dug in deeper and slapped their heavier opponents on the ears whenever the going was the roughest. Considering the weather, it was a remarkable turnout of fans. The Packers got a lot of pre-game ink in the conservative Boston papers and the natives were much interested. Just before the game started the loudspeaker system went haywire and the fans were yelping for the right number of the players. Once the "big voice" started functioning right, Bob Ingersoll, former Dartmouth player, who was doing the announcing, wasted little time in spotting the Packer gridders to the satisfaction of the throng who wanted to be sure who was Herber or Hinkle or Barrager.
George Marshall, owner of the Redskins, likes to stage
a show and he had a 60 piece band on the job. These
​musicians were all neatly uniformed but they looked the
worse for wear after they had finished their between
halves parade. At that, they did a swell job with a lot of
frills. They goose-stepped across the mud soaked field,
spreading out into the shape of a big "P" for the Bays,
and then proceeded to play "On Wisconsin". And don't 
think this tune doesn't sound good when you are about 
a thousand miles from home. Looking at the game from
a Packers point of view, there were three climaxes 
which paved the way for a glorious Packer victory. The
second stanza was about halfway over when Clark
Hinkle booted a field goal for the first Packer score. The
loudspeaker announcer said the placekick traveled 42
yards, while players on the Packer bench claimed it
went 46. The scribes in the press box atop of the 
grandstand decided not to argue about the four yard
difference and they agreed it was quite a considerable
boot. Nate Barrager passed perfectly to Arnie Herber,
who was kneeling in the muck. Herber spanked the ball
down at the right angle and Hinkle met it squarely. The
cowhide turned over lazily several times en route and 
then cut the crossbar right slick in the middle. It might
possibly have carried another 10 yards. The former
Bucknell pride got a big hand from the throng as he
pranced back for the next kickoff. And then to show the
spectators his field goal was no mistake, he booted the
ball over the goal line and Boston had to scrimmage on
its 20. Climax No. 2 came early in the third quarter. The
Bays kicked to Boston and after a couple of futile line
thrusts, the Redskins quick kicked, but the Bays were
on their toes and Hank Bruder, who turned in one of the
best games of his Green Bay career, grabbed the rain
soaked ball and came back a chalk mark or two, where
he was dumped in the mud. The Packers found the
going pretty sticky and a splendid punt rolled dead on
Boston's 15-yard line. This put the Redskins in a hole
and after a single line thrust, Wright punted. His boot 
just cleared the scrimmage line and Herber leaped into
the air and snatched the pigskin, then failing flat on the
Boston 11-yard stripe. 
This was the break that the Packers had been waiting
for and Coach Lambeau's team was quick to capitalize
on the opportunity. Bruder cracked tackle for four yards.
A short pass netted nothing but on the next lineup. 
Lavvie Dilweg cut over for one of his made to order
catches and Herber's toss nestled in his arms. Not an
alien laid a hand on the veteran Packer end during his
touchdown tour and then of course Hinkle continued to
bat 1.000 percent in the kicking league by converting
the extra point. Climax number 3 came right at the start
of the final frame. The Redskins seemed to come to life
after the Packer touchdown had left them trailing by a
10-point margin. The Hub-town machine would pick up
a few first downs but the Packers had enough reserve
in store to check the Indians when they got a bit too
troublesome. However, when the third quarter ended,
Boston had the ball on the Packers' 30, two to go. In the first rush of the final frame, Wyckoff made a first down and it looked as if Boston might be going somewhere. The crowd had picked up the rallying cry. "We want a touchdown" and it reechoed back and forth across the stadium where Joe Cronin will rule supreme next year in baseball. At this stage of the game, Lone Star Dietz, pilot of the Redskins, tried to pull a smart one but Coach Lambeau was just a bit smarter. Dietz threw out a brand new football and instructed Referee Holloran to put it in play. Quicker than you could say "Jack Robinson", Lambeau dashed along the sidelines, attracted the attention of the officials and a three-minute argument followed. In the end the new football went back in the bag and the Redskins were forced to carry on with the mud soaked one. When the game was resumed, Wyckoff fumbled on a line plunge but Malone covered the loose ball for a fair advance. Here the Packers went to work. They held tight for a couple of downs but an offside gave Boston the ball on the Green Bay 4, first down. It looked as if the Redskins might count but the fighting Green Bay line made another goal line stand that even brought cheers from the partisan Boston throng. It was patterned after the throwback of the Bears in the fourth quarter last Sunday in Chicago but was better because the Bays took the ball on about the 7-yard stripe.
The Packers used two plays to swing out of the mud puddle and then Hinkle booted deep down the field out of the danger zone. Boston was desperate about this time and started throwing some prayer passes, one of which Hinkle caught and the Boston steam was off. The final minutes of the game was played in semi-dusk while electric lights sparkled in the grandstand at the various stairs and exits. When the final whistle blew the teams were wading around in midfield mud with little or no advantage to either side. The Packers made a hasty exit over the field through an aisle of admiring spectators and hustled to the Parker house, where they bathed off the mud, jumped into their "everydays" and grabbed a train for New York. It was a jubilant gang of footballers and they were all saying "New York is next". Boston showed a plenty good football team and its ace, Battles, was pretty near a whole eleven in himself. However, the Redskins had nothing to speak off in a forward passing way and at time their backs seemed slow in getting to the line of scrimmage. The Packers played like a machine. Every player carried out his assignments and there were no outstanding stars although Herber and Hinkle bobbed frequently into the limelight with their spectacular footballing and Dilweg never looked better than when he ambled across the end zone to be on the receiving end of the touchdown pass. Milt Gantenbein, although still on the injured list, kept begging Coach Lambeau for a chance to get in the game. The Bay pilot had a deaf ear for him all the way but with two minutes to go, Milt made a final appeal. "Let me in coach, will you?" he said. Lambeau heard him this time and smilingly replied: "Can't do it, Milt, we are trying to cut expenses and think of what your extra laundry bill would be." This so surprised the end that he fell off the bench and landed in a mud puddle. Some other wise cracking Packers broke forth with, "Who said economy?" and Lambeau frowned again.

NOV 5 (New York) - The Green Bay Packers arrived here today from Boston, Mass., where they scalped the Braves by a 10 to 0 count in a NFL game. Coach Lambeau moved his Packers to the Victoria hotel and issued orders for a blackboard talk tonight at 7:30 o'clock. Checking over the injuries, the Bay pilot found that Clarke Hinkle is suffering from a sprained shoulder while Arnold Herber and Claude Perry both had bad cuts on their faces which necessitated medical stitches. Bob Jones complained of a sore head. He was knocked cold early in the Boston game and was still a little dazed when he boarded the train for here.
NOV 6 (New York) - It was unfortunate for the Packers that this was election day in New York and that the news photographers were so busy covering the polling booths that they could not get some action pictures of the "Redskin Scalpers", because the Bays were an odd looking aggregation of gridiron warriors as they went through their drill at Dewitt Clinton field. There were not two uniforms alike in the outfit and some of the players pranced around in gym suits and other things as the equipment which has been muddied plenty in the game at Boston on Sunday failed to come back from the cleaners at the promised hour. However, uniforms or other things, Coach E.L. Lambeau looked more good natured than he had for a month because he had 22 players out practicing and nearly every one of them was physically fit. Only minor injuries cropped out in the Boston game. Hinkle's bruised shoulder was limbering up nicely while both Herber and Perry, who had facial cuts, pranced around lively as ever...REGULARS ALL READY: Milt Gantenbein, Bob Monnett and Roger Grove, the three regulars who did not see action in the Redskin tilt, will all be ready for the Giants this Sunday unless something unforseen develops. As a matter of fact, the former Michigan State backfielders ran through a long signal drill this morning, and Gantenbein was chasing punts down the field with reckless abandon. Bob Jones has shaken off his skull cloud and aside from a minor headache, is little the worse for his collision with Turk Edwards, the Boston power wagon. It was the first time in Jones' football career that he had been knocked cold. The players have been kidding Bob a little and one of them asked the former Indiana captain what his first thoughts were when he came to and his answer was, "Who won the game?" Tonight the Packers are going to be like the fireman who are off duty and attending fire. The entire squad will be guest of the Brooklyn Dodger management at Ebbets field for the Chicago Cardinal game. It is understood that the New York Giants will be there too but not in the same tier of reserved seas. The Cards are also stopping at the Victoria hotel and the lobby is always filled with football players...NASH PAYS RESPECTS: Several of the Brooklyn players, Tom Nash and Bruce Jones, former Packers, also called around to pay their respects. Coach Lambeau's plans to work out daily at the Polo grounds were knocked in the head by the New York Baseball club management. The dressing rooms were not available as they had been "loaned" to several minor college teams for workouts. This forced the Bay pilot to move back to Dewitt Clinton field, which is located only about a dozen blocks from the Victoria hotel and "down by the river where the big boats come in" as one of the veteran Packers described the lot to Joe Laws, who along with Schwammel and Carl Jorgenson, are making it their business to see all the sights in Gotham. Early indications point to a big crowd for Sunday as the football Giants are linked with the Legion posts to stage a big Armistice day celebration in connection with the National league football game.
NOV 6 (Columbus, OH) - The Cincinnati National Football league franchise and players have been purchased by sportsmen operating the St. Louis Gunners, former independent professional team. In announcing the transfer Monday night, League President Joe F, Carr said the new St. Louis club would operate under the name of the Gunners. He did not reveal the amount of money involved in the transaction... LOSE SEVEN STRAIGHT: Cincinnati entered the National league before the 1933 season opened. The Reds won only four games last year and finished last in the western section. This season they lost seven straight. The Gunners have accepted Cincinnati's last place position in its second and will finish out the Reds' schedule. It is expected that the best Cincinnati players will be retained and combined with the best of the original Gunners.
NOV 6 (Green Bay) - The transfer of the Cincinnati National league franchise to St. Louis, anticipated for the past several months, probably will mean that the Packers will play at St. Louis Dec.2 instead of at Cincinnati as originally scheduled. It also means that the Green Bay team will face a much tougher foe than anticipated, as the Gunners have piled up a sensational record over the past two seasons, including several victories over National league clubs. The Gunners are believed to be on a par with teams of the circuit, even without obtaining additional strength from the defunct Cincinnati organization. There is a possibility, it is believed, that Chester (Swede) Johnson, now playing with St. Louis, will be transferred to the Packers for the remainder of the season. Coach E.L. Lambeau of the Packers announced several weeks ago that Johnson would join the Bays when and if St. Louis was granted a National league franchise.
NOV 7 (New York) - Unless one of the Packer players hurts himself in a fall out of bed or stubs his toes in a Broadway curb, Coach E.L. Lambeau will have 22 huskies fit as a fiddle to turn loose against the Giants in the NFL game at the Polo grounds this Sunday. The recent occupants of the casualty list, Milt Gantenbein, Bob Monnett, Roger Grove and Buckets Goldenberg, are frisking around in practice as lively as young colts. Speaking of casualties, Bud Jorgenson, the trainer, was nearly one in a workout at Dewitt Clinton field. He was in the middle sector, relaying the balls back to the punters, when one of the Bays, tearing down the field a mile a minute under a skyscraping boot, bumped into Bud and he sat plump in a mud puddle. Bud shook himself and got up but for the remainder of the practice he kept an eagle eye on the players coming and going. Dr. Harry A. March, one of the "fathers" of professional football, called at the hotel and went into a hot stove session with Curly Lambeau and some of the other Packers...RECALLS GREEN BAY VISITS: March still fondly remembers his visits to the Bay a few years back, and he plans to make a trip to Wisconsin next summer when, as he puts it, he won't have to be worrying about Curly Lambeau's forward pass attack. Steve Owen, coach of the Giants, has an interview in one of the New York papers about what happened to his club in Chicago when they played the Bears. According to Owen, the Bears have one of the most powerful football teams he has ever faced but he went on to add that he didn't think the 1934 Bears were any stronger than the Packers in their first championship year of 1929. The Packers took the news about the shift of the Cincinnati franchise to St. Louis with a lot of interest. However, it was the prevailing opinion of the Bay veterans that this change of scenery will make the going all the tougher as St. Louis will probably be a pretty tough nut to crack when the Packers invade the Mound City on Dec. 2. Coach Lambeau has been in several huddles with the Giant management and it is possible that a new backfielder will journey home with the Bays when they hit the trail for Wisconsin on Sunday night. The deal, which is an even exchange of players, is still hanging fire but it is pretty close to the boiling point...CROWLEY DROPS IN: Jimmy Crowley, one of Green Bay's own, has stopped in twice to say hello to the Green Bay squad. Crowley's team, Fordham, is playing a suicide schedule this season but he scored a great victory over Tennessee last Saturday and this boosted Crowley's gridiron stock considerably. Saturday Fordham tackles West Virginia and the entire Packer squad will be guests of Jimmy at the game. The football Giants are throwing a gridiron party tonight for the New York scribes at a ritzy Fifth Avenue club and T.J. Mara, owner of the Giants, has invited Coach Lambeau to address the gathering. In addition to the sportwriters, coaches from many of the universities will be guests of the Giant management. Unless President Joe F. Carr of the NFL makes one of his famous last minute shifts in officials, Tom Thorpe, one of the leading referees in the east, will handle the game between the Giants and Packers, Jack Reardon, another veteran pro league official, probably will be in charge of the line sticks. There has been no advance information on the other two officials.
NOV 7 (Chicago) - The Chicago Bears, pro football champions, are threatening to surpass the record total of 244 points set last season by the New York Giants. To date the Bears, with 209 points, are only 35 shy of the Giant mark, with several games left to play. The Bears also lead in total yardage with 2754 yards in eight games. The Packers of Green Bay continue to hold a slight edge in forward passing, but this lead is being challenged by the Giants. Kicking the extra point after touchdown appears to virtually automatic with the Chicagoans. The Bears missed only one extra point in 24 trials during their first seven games. The Giants made nine out of ten in the same period. Jack Manders is the main reason for the Bears' proficiency in getting the extra point. The former Minnesota star clicked off 15 straight last season and then ran up 17 more in succession before missing. So far this year he has kicked 20 out of 21.
NOV 7 (La Crosse) - Joe Kurth, all-American tackle in 1932, and a star in the University of Notre Dame's forward wall in 1930-31-32, from now until the close of the waning football season will wear the livery of the La Crosse Lagers. That Kurth and Tom Skemp, Lagers' coach, had arrived at a satisfactory figure for Kurth's service in the remaining game was disclosed definitely by Skemp today. Kurth's recompense was not made public. The former star of the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame spent the season of 1933 with the Green Bay Packers, and was released last week after the Packers, not so prosperous as in days of yore, found it necessary to cut expenses.
NOVEMBER 7 (Green Bay) - With the announcement of the transfer of the Cincinnati franchise in the National league to St. Louis, it is believed here than Chester (Swede) Johnston, Appleton, star fullback for the St. Louis Gunners will join the Packers for the remainder of the season. Coach E.L. Lambeau, Bay mentor, announced several weeks ago that Johnston would join the local club if and when St. Louis was granted a National league franchise. Johnston started the current season with the Packers, but, after apparently clinching a berth with the Bays, was recalled by St. Louis, who held a contract for Johnston's services for the 1934 season. Word has reached here from New York, where the Bays meet the Giants Sunday, that all members of the local team will be in shape for Sunday's encounter. Milt Gantenbein, Bob Monnett, and Roger Grove, three regulars who did not see action against Boston last week, will all be ready for the Giant clash. Only minor injuries cropped out in the Boston game. Clark Hinkle's bruised shoulder is limbering up nice while both Arnie Herber and Claude Perry, who had facial cuts, seem to be little the worse for their ailments. Bob Jones, former Indiana guard, who was knocked unconscious Sunday for the first time in his grid career seems to have shaken off the effects.
NOV 8 (New York) - This was photographers' day at Dewitt Clinton field and the Green Bay Packers did their stuff before a half dozen cameramen and sport scribes from the leading metropolitan dailies. It was a good looking Green Bay squad. The blue jerseys and silk pants had just come back from the cleaners and glimmered in the bright sunlight as "those football players from Wisconsin" passed and punted the cowhide all over the lot. The squad has an optimistic attitude. For the first time since the Detroit game every one of the 22 gridders is in shape to go and this will enable Coach Lambeau to juggle his battle front as he sees fit. He will have eight backs to shoot against Tim Mara's veteran aggregation and it wouldn't be surprising if these football Giants ran into an epidemic of forward passing, such as they have never faced in their post graduate gridiron career. Between the Legion hookup and the benefit for a Jewish charity, the New York management is pulling every string to bring out a bumper throng to the Polo grounds this Sunday. It will be the only major pro game in the Gotham sector as the hapless Brooklyn Dodgers are booked at Philadelphia...PACKERS GET SPACE: The New York papers are beginning to give the Packers a bit of space. Several pictures of Arnie Herber, Joe Laws and Tarzan Schwammel have been printed while several of the columnists have had a few pointed paragraphs about the pro team with the college spirit. Rud Rennie, World Telegram, had this little bouquet to toss in the direction of the Packers: "Those Green Bay Packers are here again. Not the champions like they were in 1929, 1930 and 1931, but a great ball club just the same. They have more color than any other spoke in the pro wheel and they always give the fans a run for their money. Unless we miss our guess, Tommy Cavanaugh, who takes charge of the shekels for the house of Mara, will be busier than ever before this season. It would not surprise me a bit to see a 30,000 crowd at the Polo grounds for the Packer game. It is too bad that there are not more clubs like Green Bay in the pro league because they sure do catch the eye of Mr. and Mrs. Professional Football fan." Coach Lambeau is keeping mum about his deal with the Giants for a backfielder. Nothing definite can be published until after the final whistle blows this weekend, but from the way things look now there will be a new back in Green Bay fold, while one of the wings will be missing...KELLY WANTS BACK: Shipwreck Kelly, co-owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers, went into a huddle with the Packer pilot late Wednesday. Kelly is looking around for a couple of blocking backs to help out his flyweight carriers. As the Dodgers now shape up they have some speed demons behind the line, but nobody aside from Carcis and Stumpy Thomason to clear the way. Lambeau didn't offer Kelly much else than advice because the Bay mentor is having his own backfield worries. Earl Witte is the champ pedestrian of the Packer squad, according to some of his teammates who have tried to hoof it around the big city with the Minnesota youngster. Witte almost would rather walk than eat. One of the Packer veterans claims he is taxi-shy, while another came to bat with the statement that you couldn't get him in a subway on a bet. Anyway, the reserve back is having a great time seeing the sights in New York, but he is wearing out a lot of shoe leather. The Green Bay delegation at the Victoria hotel has been augmented for several days by Russell Davis, former member of the Press-Gazette staff, who is now working on the Philadelphia Record. Young Mr. Davis had a glad hand for all the Packers and he seemed to enjoy himself immediately while the Packers were working out this morning.

NOV 9 (Columbus, OH) - Unless one of his nearest rivals puts on a determined scoring spree during the next few weeks, Earl (Dutch) Clark of the Detroit Lions will annex the NFL's individual scoring title for the second time in three years. Clark has climbed to a 10-point lead over Jack Manders of the Chicago Bears. The Detroit back has accounted for 65 points on seven touchdowns, 11 extra kicks and four field goals while Manders has relied chiefly on his talented toe for his 55 points...FEATHERS IN THIRD PLACE: The first five leaders, with the exception of Clark, are bunched closely. Beattie Feathers, Bears' halfback who is the greatest ground gainer in the league this season, has scored seven touchdowns for 42 points and third place. Ken Strong of the New York Giants is in fourth place, only one point behind Feathers. Philadelphia's wild outburst of scoring against the defunct Cincinnati team this week pushed Swede Hanson, Eagle backfield ace, up to fifth place in the league scoring list. Hanson collected three touchdowns and two extra points in the 64-point barrage. The Chicago Bears still top the circuit in scoring diversity being represented in the list by 12 different players. Philadelphia is second with 10 and the other teams line up as follows: Green Bay 9, Boston 8, Detroit and Pittsburgh 7 each, New York and Chicago Cardinals 5 each, Brooklyn 4 and Cincinnati 3...HAS MOST TOUCHDOWNS: Feathers has scored the most touchdowns with seven, and Manders' 22 field goal put him far ahead in that department. Manders also leads in field goal, with five. Nex Sunday, provided they score against Pittsburgh, the St. Louis Gunners will be represented on the scoring list for the first time, but it is probably too late in the season for any of the St. Louis stars to count heavily in the individual race.
NOV 9 (New York) - Lambeau and company this morning completed their stiff preparation for the National league football game with the New York Giants at the Polo grounds on Sunday with a rugged workout in which all of the 22 players on the squad participated for about two hours at Dewitt Clinton field, before several hundred onlookers. Each day the Packer practice crowds have increased. The New York papers have been carrying stories about the Bays working out on "the city lot near the river" and scribes, coaches and other football enthusiasts have been setting their alarm clocks early and getting down for a once over of Coach Lambeau's aggregation, which really appears to be more famous here than back in Badgerville. The Packers' happy family has been enjoying this stay along Broadway, but nevertheless there have been no signs of "high blood pressure" and all the boys have been stringing along the straight and narrow path with their only thoughts appeared to be "beat the Giants and return home with a clean record on the eastern trip." Aside from the daily practices, skull sessions are held every afternoon. Coach E.L. Lambeau has put in several players especially for the New York combat and, if assignments are carried out on these novel formations, the yardsticks should be moved frequently in the Green Bay cause...LOOKS GOOD PHYSICALLY: "Not since the start of the season has our squad been looking so good physically," said Coach Lambeau, "and I think if we get an even break in Sunday's game the Giants are going to have a mighty tough job on their hands to continue their Polo grounds winning streak. Record show that Steve Owen's hirelings have won 14 contests in a row at home. I am more than pleased with the spirit of the players on the eastern trip. Every member of the squad seems to be bearing down and it's this kind of attitude that will keep us on victory row over the weekend unless a last minute jinx upsets our plans. I am not underestimating the strength of the New York club. In Ken Strong, Harry Newman, Red Flaherty, Bo Molenda and Bill Hein, the Giants have some of the greatest players in professional football. I am also taking into consideration that the New York club was not in the best of physical condition when we defeated them by a 20-6 score at the State Fair park in Milwaukee earlier in the season. However, I don't think there is a club in the league that can stop our forward pass attack when our air drive is clicking right and I want to say now that I've never seen Arnie Herber tossing the ball with greater accuracy." So far as Herber is concerned, it might be rightly termed that he's the toast of Broadway from a professional football point of view. All the stories in the New York papers carry special mention about the Packers' backfielder. John
NOV 10 (New York) - The Green Bay Packers, with
every man on the squad fit for action, will take the field
at the Polo grounds on Sunday determined to bump off
the New York Giants and return home with a clean
record for the eastern invasion. The whistle blows at
2:15 p.m. (EST). The Bays know they will have a battle
on their hands as the New Yorkers have won 13 games
in a row on their home lot. It will be a different Giant
squad than the one the Packers bumped in Milwaukee
by a 20 to 6 count as the New York veterans are now
working as a well oiled unit and the recruits have been
showing lots of class, particularly Peewee Smith, the 
midget quarterback from Idaho, who is getting yards of
ink daily in the Gotham press...PERFECTS PASS
DEFENSE: According to information reaching Coach
Lambeau, the House of Mara has been toiling overtime
this week perfecting a pass defense which the New
Yorkers think will throw a harpoon into Green Bay's 
much vaunted aerial drive. One thing is sure, Herber will
be watched like a hawk but some of the other Packer
backfielders have been doing a lot of passing during the
practice workout this week, and it is quite possible that
the New Yorkers may be treated to a surprise or two
before the final whistle blows. The officials are said to be
satisfactory to Coach Lambeau. Tom Thorpe is rated as
one of the best referees in the east while Colonel Mums,
the umpire, and Head Linesman Jack Reardon are
experienced at their positions. The field judge, George
Vergara, a newcomer in the officiating ranks, is none
other than the former Notre Dame star who played end
with the Packers in 1925...WIRES HUEY LONG: T.J.
Mara, owner of the Giants, never misses a chance for
publicity. Huey Long, who has been broadcasting
challenges all over the U.S.A. in behalf of Biff Jones'
Louisiana State eleven, drew a wire from the New York
professional gridiron magnate. Mara is willing to play
Louisiana State in New York on Dec. 16 in a charity
game and added that if his team didn't trim the college
team, he would turn over an additional $10,000 to 
Louisiana for charity purposes. As yet there has been 
no reply from the Louisiana "Kingfish" but it is certain
that the southern senator is smart enough to keep his
rah rah team clear of a gridiron massacre. The Green
Bay delegation has been further augmented by Louie
Cook from down Long Island way and Les (Lefty) Smith,
former Kaukauna ball player who is now hanging his hat
in Glens Falls, N.Y., where he is employed by a 
prominent paper company. Glens Falls is some 200 
miles upstate but Smith and his wife motored down to
Gotham and for once in his life he is going to be pulling 
for Green Bay.
NOV 10 (Green Bay) - The Packer ticket office has 
been moved to Room 202 in the Northern building, E.A. Spachmann, sales chairman, announced today. Tickets many not be obtained for the Green Bay-Chicago Cardinals game at Milwaukee, Nov. 18, he added.
Kiernan, dean of the New York columnists, in a recent comment about Herber said that he could do anything with a football except swallow it. One thing is sure, the former West High captain will have a lot of newspaper ink for his scrapbook when he gets back to the metropolis of Brown county...START HOUR EARLIER: The Packers will start their practice an hour earlier Saturday morning so that the signal workouts, coupled with warming up exercises, will be completed in time for the squad to return to the hotel, get rid of their monkey togs, and grab a subway for the Polo grounds, where they will be the guests of Jimmy Crowley, coach of the Fordham team at the game with West Virginia university. Mush Esler, Kaukauna ball player, and Bud Sager, one of the Electric City's well known song birds, visited the Packer late Thursday. Esler has been playing professional football with the South Orange, New Jersey team which is coached by Jack McBride, former New York Giant star, while Sager is doing some warbling at several of the radio broadcasting stations in the immediate vicinity. Esler will be on the line sticks for the Packers in Sunday's game, as his clubs has an open date and will not be in action. According to present plans, the Packers will make a quick getaway Sunday night, as they are scheduled to leave for Chicago over the New York Central at 7:45 p.m. This train reaches the Windy City at 4 o'clock Monday afternoon and two hours later the Bays will be aboard a Milwaukee Road train bringing them home at 10:20 p.m and nobody will be sorry, either. 
NOV 9 (Green Bay) - Denny Shea, business manager of the Boston Redskins, has his fair weather record broken last Sunday. It was the first time in three years that the Hubtown outfit had to battle in the rain...Several of the National league clubs are figuring on Pacific coast trips this winter but no definite schedules have been announced. The Bears toured the Golden West early this year and cleaned up...It was like a pro football convention in New York early this week as the Chicago Card, Green Bay Packer, Brooklyn and Giant players all gathered around and talked things over between contests...The championship race in the eastern division is still a free for all with Boston, New York and Brooklyn still having a chance for the title playoff. It looks like the Giants as they hold a game lead now...In the western division, honors will rest between the Chicago Bears and Detroit. Both these clubs have won eight straight games. The Bears invade Detroit on Thanksgiving Day with a return tilt in Chicago on Dec. 2...The Boston management is expecting the largest crowd of the season this week when the Bears will exhibit their super football machine at Fenway park.
