of Coach E.L Lambeau as he hustled his Green Bay Packers onto a Milwaukee road train at 12:45 this afternoon, headed southward for a short jaunt which will wind up at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon, when the Bays and the Detroit Lions will clash at State fair park in West Allis. Johnny Blood and Roger Grove, halfbacks, will not be in uniform tomorrow, but the rest of the squad will be intact, and what's more, most of the players will be in excellent condition, their goal being to knock the Lions one rung lower in the Western division of the NFL. Chances of turning that trick, of all-importance to Green Bay's pennant prospects, were brightened somewhat by an injury to Glenn Presnell, ace Detroit back, but the Lions still carry a powerful ground attack, with Ernie Caddel, leading ground gainer of the league, as its spearhead. Detroit is bringing to Milwaukee the same destructive team which last season gave the Packers two terrific games, both ending in 3 to 0 scores. The first, played here, went to the Lions on Presnell's 54-yard field goal, and the contest at Detroit was won by Green Bay, when Clarke Hinkle booted over a goal only slightly less impressive in length. Since that time the Lions have added several new players of considerable talent, the most successful being Regis Monagan, Ohio State's great guard, who has been doing yeoman service in the Detroit cause...HUBBARD IS O.K.: The past week has seen steady improvements in the Bays' injury list. Hinkle will be ready for tough action, and Cal Hubbard's cold has cleared up in fine style. The team planned a late afternoon practice at State fair park this afternoon, after which it will be quartered at the Hotel
Schroeder until game time. A skull practice in on tap for tonight. The Packers will leave Milwaukee at 7 o'clock Sunday night. Chatter about the Packers' determination to win is no mouthwash. Disappointed and disgusted over their failure to take the Cardinals last Sunday, when they made thirteen first downs in the first half without scoring, the players announced their intention of ripping into the Lions on the rebound, settling once and for all Green Bay's position as contender in the championship race. Successive victories over the Lions and Bears would place the Packers in a position as first string challenger to the lead held by the Cardinals, and would stack up the Packer-Cardinal Thanksgiving day game as one of utmost importance.
OCT 19 (Green Bay) - Russ Winnie, sports announcer at radio station WTMJ, will speak at Monday noon's guest-day luncheon meeting of the Kiwanis club at the Hotel Northland. He will demonstrate the work of broadcasting and relate many interesting experiences in his work. Winnie has broadcast every Green Bay Packer game since 1930 and has built up a tremendous following for his other broadcasts and daily sportcasts. For the Chicago Bears-All Star game in Chicago last August, he was selected to do the announcing for the NBC network. The Kiwanis club has invited other service clubs in the city through special notices, but all persons who are interested, men and women, are invited to attend. Reservations should be made at the hotel in advance.
OCT 19 (Green Bay) - Green Bay interest in the feud
which will send two powerful football units smoking into
combat at Milwaukee tomorrow afternoon has dimmed
local interest in another engagement, which may be of
great importance, eventually, to the pennant hopes of 
the Green Bay Packers. The Brooklyn Dodgers will 
meet the Chicago Bears at Wrigley field. Brooklyn has
every chance - almost better than an even one - of
defeating the Bears, and doing the Packers a great 
good turn in the quest of the latter team for the Western
championship. The Dodgers outplayed both New York
and Boston, to which they lost close decisions, and 
thumped the Detroit Lions in a game which caused
Packer pennant stock to advance a notch. If you think
it over, you'll take the Dodgers, with battering Stan
Kostka, Minnesota's powerhouse, Bill Lee of Alabama,
greatest tackle of the South last year, and brilliant Ray
Fuqua of Southern Methodist, the gentleman who very
nearly signed a Green Bay contract. The Chicago Bears
physician says Bronko Nagurski, an individual the Bear
team has needed desperately this season, must 
continue to ride the sidelines. So keep an eye on the
Dodgers. We can't - we'd rather watch the Packers. We
like the score of 6 to 0, Green Bay.
OCT 19 (Milwaukee) - Aerial defense of the Detroit Lions
will undergo a severe test here Sunday when the
Detroiters oppose the Green Bay Packers in a NFL 
encounter. The Packers have one of the greatest ends 
in the circuit in Don Hutson, All-Americans last year at
Alabama. And on the throwing end they have Arnold
Herber, a deadly passer, and George Sauer, Nebraska
All-American two years ago. Passes to Hutson were
instrumental in winning two games for the Packers this
season. It was a long pass from Herber to Hutson that
upset the Chicago Bears, 7 to 0, in September. Hutson
also snared a couple of passes as the Packers routed
Pittsburgh, 27 to 0. The Bay team also has scored a 
16-7 victory over the Giants, league champions. But
there are two blots on the other side of the ledger, both
administered by the Chicago Cardinals. The Cards beat
Green Bay in the season's opener and then repeated
last Sunday through Pardonner's field goal. So Green
Bay has won three games and lost two to occupy the
cellar in the league's Western Division. A defeat for the
Packers virtually will eliminate them from championship
consideration...GAME IS RUBBER ONE: Last season
the two teams split even in two games, each of which
was decided by a field goal. Glenn Presnell kicked a 
54-yard field goal from placement to win for the Lions at
Green Bay, 3 to 0. Then in the return game at Detroit,
Clark Hinkle booted one between the posts from the 38-
yard line to reverse the first score. Incidentally, that goal
ended a ten-game winning streak for the Lions. Hutson,
Packers' star end, caught eight out of 11 passes from
Dixie Howell as 'Bama routed Stanford in the Rose Bowl
last New Year's Day. Other Packer flankers are Bob
Tenner, once of Minnesota, and Milt Gantenbein, 
formerly of Wisconsin. The tower of the Packer line is
Cal Hubbard, 240-pound tackle. Tar Schwammel, late of
Oregon State, and George Maddox, formerly of Kansas
State, are the other Green Bay tackles. In the Green
Bay backfield are Sauer, Herber, Joe Laws, elusive Iowa
graduate; Bob Monnett, former Michigan State star, and
Hank Bruder, hard-luck gridder from Northwestern. 
Johnny Blood, veteran halfback, is out with a brain
concussion. Coach George (Potsy) Clark will send a
patched-up Lion eleven against the Packers. Injuries
have so riddled his lineup that he plans to play only 11
men throughout the game unless the situation forces
him to change his scheme...MANY CHANGES
NEEDED: John Schneller will be shifted from end to
guard, and Elmer (Bear) Ward, regular center, will fill the
other guard post. They will replace Sam Knox and Ox
Emerson, both on the casualty list. Clare Randolph will
fill in at center while Red Stacy and George Christensen
will be the tackles. Jack Johnson, regular tackle, will 
miss his first game in 17 starts, due to a twisted ankle.
Ed Klewicki and Harry Ebding will be the starting ends.
The Lions will be minus their big offensive threat with
Presnell out with a broken vertebra. He helped beat
Boston and tie the Cardinals. Earl (Dutch) Clark will 
start at quarterback, with Frank Christensen and Ernie
Caddel as halfbacks. Buddy Parker completes the 
lineup at fullback. Caddel had a twisted ankle but is
likely to start. Sunday's game will be the first of three
that are scheduled between the Lions and Packers this
season. In other league games Sunday, Brooklyn will
meet the Bears at Chicago, New York will entertain
Boston and the Chicago Cardinals travel to Pittsburgh.
OCT 20 (Milwaukee) - In a last ditch stand to remain in
the fight for the championship in the western division of the National Professional Football league, the Packers will take the field at State Fair park Sunday afternoon against the second place Lions of Detroit. The kickoff is scheduled at 2 o'clock. A game and a half behind the leading Chicago Cardinals and a half game behind the Bears and Lions, who are tied for second place in this division, the Packers must win Sunday to remain in the thick of the fight. A victory will keep them within striking distance of the leaders. A defeat will drop them down so far they'll have little more than a mathematical chance to finish in front. It was a tough blow to lose last Sunday's game here, for victory would have meant undisputed possession of first place, but the Packers have bounced back well in practice and Sunday will take the field again keyed to a high pitch. The loss of Johnny Blood, quarterback, who suffered a head injury that kept him in St. Mary's hospital here until Thursday, will be partially offset by the return of Clark Hinkle, fullback, and Roger Grove, quarterback, both of whom has been on the ailing list since the start of the season. Blood, none the worse now for his bad bump, also wants to play, but Lambeau will probably want to give him another week's rest. One of the strongest clubs in the league, as their 10-10 tie with the Cardinals showed, the Lions will have their full strength on the field except for Glen Presnell, leading scorer in the league with 25 points. Presnell, whose 53-yard placekick beat the Packers at Green Bay a year ago, fractured a vertebra in his team's 17-7 victory over Boston last week, and will probably be lost for a month. Sunday's game here will be one of four league contests in a race that has become the most bitter - and most profitable for the clubs - in the history of the league. Brooklyn will face the Chicago Bears at Chicago, Boston will meet the Giants in New York and the Cardinals, sole undefeated eleven in the league, will meet the tailend Pittsburgh team at Pittsburgh. All league attendance records are due to be smashed this year, according to Joe Carr, president of the league. The league showed an increase of 700,000 a year ago, and with the start it has made this season, will probably pick up anywhere from 700,000 to a million more this year.
(MILWAUKEE) - With the two teams battering each other to pieces, the Chicago Cardinals defeated the Green Bay Packers at State Fair park here Sunday afternoon, 3 to 0, the winning margin coming on a 12-yard dropkick by Paul Pardonner. Failure to kick for almost certain field goals on two or three occasions possibly was the greatest contributing factor to a defeat the Packers did not deserve. Driving through wide gashes in the Cardinal line to advance time after time within scoring distance, and striking successfully through the air on 10 occasions, the Packers looked a couple of touchdowns better than the Chicago tea, - yet as the game closed Green Bay was desperately, and with success, fighting to stave off a dangerous Cardinal touchdown threat. Statistics clearly show the superiority of the Packers, but they paid off on the final score - and that went to the Cardinals. Their terrific first half offensive on a sultry afternoon, which led the 13,000 customers to believe that the Packers were a cinch to trounce the Chicago team, actually wore the Packers out. In the first two periods they gained 91 yards to a scant seven for the Cardinals, and at the end of the game some of the men were so tired they hardly were able to work off the field. Special credit for the great showing goes to a dozen or more Packers. Al Rose, guarding the left wing, turned in his greatest game in a Packer uniform, until he retired with a leg injury in the fourth period. On the other end, Milt Gantenbein again performed excellently. Mike Michalske and Cal Hubbard, the assistant coaches, battled the Cardinal forwards until both were tired our, but Mike was in there at the finish, and Hubbard didn't leave the game until late in the fourth period. At guard, Walt Kiesling gave the Packers his best performance of the season.
John Blood, one-time vagabond halfback who steered the Packers down the field on several occasions in the first half, left the stadium in an ambulance, unconscious as the result of a brain concussion suffered in the fourth quarter collision. Hank Bruder, one of the big ground gainers of the afternoon, received a painful injury to his shoulder, and was sent to the bench. Tar Schwammel, Lon Evans and Ernie Smith were defensive stars, Ernie almost personally turning back the last Cardinal advance with four consecutive tackles. In the backfield big George Sauer and Buckets Goldenberg shook the Cardinals head to foot with an impressive display of tackling. Bob Monnett's forward passes hit the mark on every occasion but one, but Arnie Herber, usually the Green Bay passing ace, had himself a bad day. Herber's passes were high and wide, and none was completed, although Blood grabbed one toss out of bounds in the end zone for what came close to being a Packer touchdown. The Packers all but drove the Cardinals into the ground during the first half. They forced Sarboe to punt soon after the opening kickoff and then started a destructive goalward march. Finally Bruder ripped through the line for eight yards and a first down on the Cardinal 39-yard stripe and a moment later Sauer passed to Laws over the right side of the line for a first down on the 23-yard stripe.
Bruder, Sauer and Laws pounded the line in succession for 10 yards and another first down, after which Sauer wormed his way around right end behind a perfect screen of interference thrown together by Goldenberg, Laws and Bruder, carrying the ball to the Cardinal 10-yard line. Bruder ripped into center for four yards, but fumbled and recovered for a loss on the next play. Sauer trotted back for a few yards and passed over the left side of the line to Al Rose, but the ball was high by a foot or so, and the Packers lost the ball on downs. They were back at the goal line in no time at all. A fake quick kick by Herber, with Bruder carrying the ball around left end, picked up 23 yards and brought the ball to the Cardinal 36-yard stripe. Goldenberg dove through left guard for seven yards. Blood tossed a pass over the right side of the line to Gantenbein, who was spilled by Mikulak and Nichelini on the Cardinal 19-yard line. Bruder plunged through left tackle for three yards, added three more at center, and a Herber to Hutson forward pass over the goal line was incomplete. At this point, with Blood holding the ball, Schwammel missed an attempt at field goal from the 23-yard line.
The Cardinals were offside on the play, and the penalty gave Green Bay a first down on the 8-yard line. Bruder hit left guard for one yard, and Herber punched through right tackle for one more. Herber then passed over the goal line to Hutson, unsuccessfully, and the next pass, to Blood, was speared by the latter out of bounds. The Cardinals took the ball on downs, and the Packers had it in their own territory when the first period ended. The play that cost the Packers the game came early in the second period. Dave Cook streamed around left end behind beautiful interference, cut back and broke into open country. Blood maneuvered himself in position between Cook and the goal, driving the Chicago halfback to Gantenbein, who bumped him on the 10-yard line to check the gain at 44 yards. The Packer line braced like concrete, holding Peterson and Cook to five yards in four plays. Pardonner then stepped back to the 17-yard line and booted a perfect dropkick for three points.
Later in the period Monnett let loose a forward pass to Blood, who lateraled to Hutson on the Green Bay 39-yard line, Hutson stepping away for an apparent touchdown. The officials ruled forward progress stopped and the ball came back to the 49-yard stripe. Monnett's short pass over center moved the ball into Cardinal  territory, and Hutson swept to the 22-yard line on an end around play. Once again the Packers were in threatening position. Swede Johnston charged through right tackle to the 16-yard line, Blood threw an incomplete pass, and the Cardinals were penalized for taking too many time out periods. This brought the ball to the 11-yard line. Johnston pounded hard through left end for six yards, Sarboe stopping him, and Monnett gained two more at right tackle. Laws gained but half a yard at left tackle, and when Johnston was stopped at the same spot the Cardinals got the ball on downs on the two and a half yard line.
Laws returned Sarboe's punt to the Cardinal 38-yard line, but the threat was checked when Monnett drew a 15 yard penalty for intentionally grounding a forward pass. Several plays bogged down, and then Monnett shot a forward pass over the right side of the line to Joe Laws, who was dropped on the Cardinal 20-yard line. Three line plays by Laws and Monnett gained only two yards, and as the half ended, Monnett, with Laws holding, missed an attempt at field goal from the 25-yard line. The Cardinals made considerably more of a game after play was resumed. They split the Packer line wide open with a crushing ground attack, Russell and Mikulak alternating at carrying the ball until the latter brought it to the Green Bay 20-yard line, first down. The advance was halted when Seibold recovered Nichelini's fumble on the Packer 16-yard line. The Packers were in hot water a few minutes later when Mikulak hooked off Sauer's pass on the Green Bay 36-yard line, but passes fell incomplete and Bill Smith missed an attempt at field goal from the 45-yard line, with Sarboe holding the ball. The kick was short and Sauer returned the ball to the Green Bay 21-yard line. The Cardinals were set back when Blood punted out of bounds on the Chicago 26-yard line, but a moment later Johnny was injured and was carried off the field.
Al Rose and Tar Schwammel broke through on two successive plays to smear Sarboe for big losses, and after the resultant punt, Monnett got through right tackle for eight yards and a first down on the Cardinal 45-yard line. Here the ball was placed as they entered the fourth period. The closing quarter was just about all Cardinals, the Packers failing to get out of the darkness because of several intercepted forward passes. The Cardinals were unable to score, however, because of the sensational defensive play of the all-but-exhausted Packer linemen. Pangle started it by intercepting Sauer's pass and hauling the freight to the Green Bay 28-yard line. Several plays failed, and Cook's attempt at placement from the 40-yard line was weak. Sauer slapped the Cardinals back where they belonged with a long punt, carrying to the Chicago 33-yard line, but the next time the Bays had the ball Sarboe made a spectacular interception of a pass, intended for Hutson. Pangle tore through the left side of the Packer line on a 23-yard jaunt, being stopped by Gantenbein on the 8-yard line. It hardly seemed possible that the Packer line could stop this final advance, but stop it they did, aided greatly by the heroic tackling of Ernie Smith and Mike Michalske. Russell and Pangle carried that ball on four successive plays, and when the dust settled the ball rested within a foot of the goal line - but still on the playing field. Herber attempted to pass from behind the goal line, but Pangle intercepted the toss and brought it back to the 6-yard line, where Schneidman stopped him with a terrific tackle. Pangle gained a yard at left tackle as the game ended.

​Sunday October 13th 1935 (at Milwaukee)
OCT 18 (Green Bay) - Aroused by the knowledge that their path to the top of the NFL's Western division may not be as long nor as difficult as they supposed after last Sunday's defeat by the Chicago Cardinals, the Green Bay Packers today considered statistic combinations while they drilled for their battle with the Detroit Lions at Milwaukee day after tomorrow. Rain yesterday kept the squad indoors, but the players worked hard just the same. They spent three hours during the afternoon at the Beaumont hotel, going through a skull drill and chalk talk with Coach Lambeau. The extra day of rest gave the Packer injuries, few as they are, a chance to improve, and Lambeau now is confident that his men will close to full strength for the encounter on Sunday...BLOOD IS MENDING: Word from St. Mary's hospital, Milwaukee, indicates that
Johnny Blood, popular ex-vagabond who picked up some yardage and a brain concussion against the Cards, is staging his usual phenomenal improvement and probably will be on his feet before many days pass. A little attention to National league statistics reveals the Packers in a fair spot to take first place by Nov. 3, with further possibility that the title will be decided in the Thanksgiving day engagement between Green Bay and the Cardinals at Chicago. Here's the setup: At present the Cardinals are first and the Packers are last in the Western division, the standings being as follows:
           W  L  T  .PCT
Cardinals  2  0  1 1.000
Detroit    2  1  1  .667
Bears      2  1  0  .667
Packers    3  2  0  .600
If the Cardinals should be upset Sunday at Pittsburgh,
the standings would be thrown into a wild scramble, but
no one is counting on that. What seems more likely to
the Packers is that the Cardinals will take Pittsburgh,
and the Bays will defeat Detroit. This, coupled with a 
possible defeat of the Bears by Brooklyn, would leave
the standings in this shape:
           W  L  T  .PCT
Cardinals  3  0  1 1.000
Packers    4  2  0  .667
Detroit    2  2  1  .500
Bears      2  2  1  .500
The Bears, however, may beat the Dodgers, and that
would stack things up in this fashion:
           W  L  T  .PCT
Cardinals  3  0  1 1.000
Bears      3  1  0  .750
Packers    4  2  1  .667
Detroit    2  2  1  .500
Going back to the idea that Brooklyn's powerful team
may trip the Bears, the schedule then would enter the
crucial set of games Oct. 27 with Green Bay at the
Bears, the Cardinals at New York, facing a possible
upset, and Detroit idle. If Green Bay beats the Bears
again, and the Cardinals lost to the Giants, your
standings will read like this:
           W  L  T  .PCT
Cardinals  3  1  1  .750
Green Bay  5  2  0  .714
Detroit    2  2  1  .500
Bears      2  3  0  .400
On Nov. 3 there will be a crucial game between the
Cardinals and Detroit, at Chicago. The Packers are idle
that day, and the Bears play New York. The Cardinal-
Detroit mix is full of portent to the Packers, for one way
or another, it will point a finger to Green Bay's pennant
possibilities. Maybe the Lions will win, and if they do,
your Green Bay Packers will climb right back into first
place via the back door route. This is the way the
standings will read:
           W  L  T  .PCT
Packers    5  2  0  .715
Cardinals  3  2  1  .600
Detroit    3  3  1  .500
Bears      3  3  0  .500
Now suppose the Cardinals trip up the Lions. In that
case, the Cards would hold a narrow lead, and the 
scene would switch with ever-increasing importance to
the game between the Cardinals and Packers on
Thanksgiving day, for by maintaining their winning pace,
and defeating the Cards in that last game, Green Bay
could climb into first place. The standings Nov.3, if the
Cardinals whip Detroit, would be as follows:
           W  L  T  .PCT
Cardinals  4  1  1  .800
Packers    5  2  0  .714
Bears      3  3  0  .500
Detroit    2  3  1  .400
All this means that next Sunday's game between the Packers and Lions at State fair park in West Allis has
assumed the proportions of the Packers' most crucial game to date. If the Packers had defeated the Cardinals last week, outscoring them in addition to pushing them all over West Milwaukee, Green Bay now would be in first place, and the other teams would face a terrific task to dislodge it. But Green Bay did not win, and thus the road to the top is harder, and will take loner. But the team is figuring to get there.
OCT 18 (Green Bay) - "I'm all ready to play against Detroit Sunday," Johnny Blood, injured Packer halfback, announced over the long distance wire late yesterday to Coach E.L. Lambeau of the Green Bay Packers. "Never felt better in my life," added the world's toughest halfback, who was carried from the field at Milwaukee last Sunday with an apparent brain concussion. Lambeau informed Blood that he had been placed upon the team's suspended list for one week, in the belief that he would be unable to play next Sunday. "I'll be able to play," Blood insisted. "We're going to win that championship, and I'm going to be in their helping." Which, Lambeau admitted, certainly was showing the old fight.
OCT 18 (Green Bay) - Persons planning to obtain tickets for the Green Bay-Detroit game at Milwaukee Sunday afternoon are reminded that the ticket office here at E. Walnut and Adams streets will close at 11 o'clock Saturday morning for the weekend.
OCT 18 (New York) - Professional football is heading for a boom year, the biggest since the National league was organized in 1921. Early returns indicate all attendance records will be broken during the 1935 season. The spectacular, wide-open type of game played every Sunday by the professionals is attracting new customers in wholesale lots, as the following figures show: The New York Giants' opening game at the Polo Grounds drew 29,303 paid admissions, a 24 percent increase over last year. Pittsburgh's opening game against the Giants drew 23,000, largest crowd ever to see a pro football game in that city. Green Bay has attracted two capacity crowds, one of 14,000 at home against the Chicago Bears. The Detroit Lions' opening attendance against Philadelphia was 15 percent larger than for the opening game last season...ATTENDANCE IS BOOSTED: The National league showed an increase of about 700,000 customers last season over the previous year. Unless weather interferes, the 1935 attendance is expected to take another upward jump of about 700,000. The Giants, champions of last year, drew more than 250,000 persons and gate receipts of about $350,000 in seven home games. One of the big items of expense to the Giants last year was a hospital bill of more than $10,000 for treatment of injured players. The average payroll for one team for a game is around $4,500. The average salary for a back is $200 to $250, and for a lineman $150 to $175. The highest paid player in the league is Ken Strong, Giants' halfback, whose salary is about $7,000 or $500 per game. Bronko Nagurski, Chicago Bears' fullback, is another of the highest paid players in the league, but a hip injury has slowed him up and he may be out of action all season, and possible is through for good. Among the first year players, Stan Kostka, Minnesota fullback playing with the Brooklyn Dodgers, is said to be drawing the largest salary, approaching $5,000...CARDS SPRING SURPRISE: The surprise team of the season is the Chicago Cardinals, made up largely of first and second year men, and coached by Milan Creighton, former U. of Arkansas end. The Cardinals are the only unbeaten team in the league, having defeated Green Bay twice, 7-6, 3-0, and held the Detroit Lions to a 10-10 tie. Green Bay has knocked off the Chicago Bears, 7-0, and the New York Giants, 16-7. Ernie Caddel, former Stanford halfback with Detroit, is the league's leading ground gainer. He has ripped off 238 yards in four game. Ed Danowski, former Fordham halfback, is the leading passer, having complete 46 percent of his tosses in four games. Dale Burnett, Giants' halfback, is the leading scorer, with 30 points. A collegiate touch has been introduced in the professional league by several teams. Brooklyn has a cheering section, with three cheerleaders who go through the same gyrations as collegians. Green Bay and Boston have bands. The Boston group is the "Red Skin" band.
OCT 18 (Green Bay) - The Detroit Lions got back into stride again and came home from Boston on the long end of a 17 to 7 count. Weather conditions in the Hub were ideal for the gridiron exhibition and some 20,000 spectators got plenty of thrills...Potsey Clark's club took the lead in the first quarter when Glenn Presnell booted a 35-yard placement. Dutch Clark "touchdowned" for Detroit in the third frame while Ernie Caddell crossed the goal line towards the close of the game...Boston's lone marker came in the final frame. With the ball on the Redskins' 40-yard stripe, Pug Rentner hurled a "down the alley" pass to Charlie Malone who scampered for a touchdown. Wright converted for the extra point...Lud Wray's Philadelphia Eagles were forced to take the short end of a 39 to 0 score against the Chicago Bears in the Quaker City last Sunday. Only once during the fracas did the Phillies have the ball in scoring territory...Alabama Pitts was the lone bright spot from the Philadelphia point of view. Pitts went into the game in the fourth quarter and immediately drew a hand from the crowd when he brought Gene Ronzani down with a flying tackle...Red Pollock, a product of the Pennsylvania Military academy, had a field day during the second quarter. He sprinted for three successive touchdowns besides showing class galore on the defense. Pollock looks like a real find...President Joe F. Carr's office in Columbus is busy handling waivers and releases these days. As all the clubs have played three games, the deadline on the player limit is at hand. No team can have more than 24 active players...Business is good all around the pro league circuit. The football fans seem to be taking to this postgraduate brand more than ever and the club owners see some enormous turnouts before the curtain drops midway in December...Once again Ken Strong proved a jinx to the Brooklyn Dodgers and as a result the New York Giants copped the opening game of Father Knickerbocker's postgraduate gridiron feud by the score of 10 to 7. Strong made all the Giants' points...The veteran backfielder skirted around end on the sixth play of the opening quarter for a touchdown and then converted. He went back into the fracas during the closing quarter and added three points via the field goal route...Ray Fuqua, a recruit end from the south, made the Dodgers' lone marker late in the fourth period when he grabbed a short pass from Bill White, a substitute backfielder, who did the tossing for the Dodgers. Kercheval added the extra point...Unless the New Yorkers have a sudden collapse, the Owen-Mara combination should again cut in on the postseason championship play. The Giants have faced three of the eastern division elevens without getting mussed up...The Chicago Cards are pacing the western loop with a pair of victories and a tie game. Coach Creighton's aggregation is hustling every minute but they have a lot of hurdles to jump yet on their way to Pennantville...Owner Art Rooney and Coach Joe Bach of the Pittsburgh Pirates are shopping around for footballers. A number of players are being given the once over in an attempt to uncover several gridders who will bolster the Pirates...Lud Wray continues to have his tackle troubles at Philadelphia. In last Sunday's game against the Bears, Wray used Cuba, Brian, Kresky, Homer, Hanson and Jorgenson at the tackle posts without much success...The 1935 professional football season will get underway in Chicago this Sunday when the Bears open a long home stay against Brooklyn. George Halas and the other Bruin moguls think the Dodgers will be an A1 gate attraction...The Boston Redskins are booked for a return engagement this weekend in New York. Eddie Casey's club will be seeking revenge as the Giants took them into camp by the score of 20 to 15 in Boston two weeks ago...The Chicago Cardinals are in Pittsburgh Sunday for a league tilt with the Pirates. The Windy City gridders will remain in the east after the Pittsburgh game as they are booked against the Giants in New York on Oct. 27.
OCT 18 (Milwaukee) - When the Detroit Lions square off the Green Bay Packers here Sunday in what is considered the "crucial" game of the season for the Bays, they will be minus the services of their high-scoring back, Glenn Presnell, former Nebraska star. The club physician announced last night that Presnell will be unable to play for at least six weeks because of a fractured vertebra received last Sunday in the game with Boston Redskins. Presnell has scored 25 points in four games for the Lions. Sunday's meeting here is expected to decide whether the Packers will remain in the race for the NFL title. The Packer have defeated the New York Giants, the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Chicago Bears and lost twice to the Chicago Cardinals.
OCT 18 (Detroit) - A fractured veterbra will keep Glenn Presnell, Detroit Lions' star back, out of the lineup for six weeks, the Lions' management announced from their offices in the Fisher Building Thursday afternoon. The former University of Nebraska All-American suffered the injury at Boston last Sunday during the Lions-Redskins clash. The accident occurred late in the fourth quarter of the game which the Lions won, 17 to 7. Presnell complained of a sore back Monday and at Tuesday and Wednesday's practice session. He was of the belief that he had suffered a severe bruise. On Thursday, when the soreness failed to disappear, Coach George Potsy Clark ordered him to report to Dr. William Keane, club physician, for X-ray pictures. The photos showed that Presnell had suffered a fractured transverse process of the second lumbar verterbra, Dr. Keane said...SAYS PINCKERT DID IT: Asked if he recalled how the injury had come about, Presnell recited a play in which Ernie Pinckert, Redskin halfback, dug both of his knees into his back after he had been downed. "I'm sure it was an accident on Pinckert's part, despite the fact that Ernie and Ken Strong, New York Giants' back, had engaged in a fist fight after the game the previous week over a similar happening." The loss of Presnell coming at this time of the season gave the championship aspirations of the Lions in the NFL a severe setback. The fleet Cornhusker has been the best backfield performer Potsy Clark has had all season. Against Philadelphia Presnell tallied nine points. He registered three points against the Cardinals, scored all 10 in the Brooklyn Dodgers game and kicked a 35-yard placement against Boston for a total of 25 points in four games..HAS GOOD RECORD: Presnell came here as a part of the Portsmouth Spartans players franchise purchased by George A. (Dick) Richards in 1934. After being graduated from Nebraska, where he still is recognized as the peer of all Cornhusker ball carriers, Presnell played with the Ironton Tanks. Last season against the Green Bay Packers, Presnell established a new record for a placement kick in the National league when he booted the Lions to a three-point victory over the Packers with a placement from the 54-yard line. Presnell joined Ox Emerson, Jack Johnson, Sam Knox, Regis Monahan, Buster Mitchell and George Christensen on the Lions' injured list. The team will play through the Packers game next Sunday at Milwaukee with 17 men.
OCT 19 (Detroit) - Potsy Clark, Detroit Lions' football coach, will rely upon his famous "60-minute men" to carry the Lions to a victory over the Green Bay Packers Sunday afternoon at Milwaukee. Riddled by injuries, with seven of his star players on the casualty list, the Detroit mentor put the issue squarely up to his squad Friday morning. He said that, if they hoped to win, the famous "60-minute men" would have to turn the trick. Clark called for a vote and every member of the "60-minute men" clubs shouted: "Let's go." "If they don't run into injuries, I shall make no substitutions. Of course one of the gang may get hurt, but barring injuries they'll play the entire game. We whipped Green Bay two years ago at Portsmouth with 11 men and I believe we can do it again Sunday." It was after the Spartan-Packer game in 1933 that the "60-minute" club came into being. Clark was forced to resort to drastic changes in his lineup to put an eleven on the field against the Packers that season. The most surprising change for Sunday's lineup took place when Potsy announced big John Schneller would play in Ox Emerson's position at right guard. While the former University of Wisconsin star has played at end, center and fullback, this will mark his first appearance at a guard post. He is 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs 205 pounds. Another change, almost as drastic as the moving of Schneller from end to guard, was Potsy's announcement that Elmer (Bear) Ward, center, would play in the left guard position of injured Sam Knox. Ward has played tackle and fullback but the guard position is new to him.
OCT 14 (Green Bay) - Barring complications following a concussion of the brain, Johnny Blood, Packer halfback injured in yesterday's game at Milwaukee, will see  further service this season, according to Dr. W.W. Kelly, medical advisor. Dr. Kelly today issued the following statement: "During the game Blood sustained a concussion of the brain as well as an injury to the neck, apparently as the result of a collision with another player. He became unconscious and was taken to County Emergency hospital, the nearest such institution to the field. Two hours after the game,
John regained consciousness. It was deemed advisable
to remove him to St. Mary's hospital, which was done
about four hours after the game. I placed him under the
care of Dr. Urban E. Gebhard. I remained in Milwaukee
to determine his condition until 11 o'clock last night, 
and at that time it was greatly improved. It was deemed
advisable, however, to take x-ray pictures, which was
done this morning. I talked to Dr. Gebhard this morning,
and he said that Blood's condition continues to show
improvement. The result of the x-ray pictures will not be
known until later today. Blood is resting comfortably,
except for some nausea, and there have been no 
complications up to the present time. As soon as he is
able to travel, which will not be for several days, Blood
will be removed to Green Bay. Having known Johnny for
a great many years, and being aware of his ability to
stand punishment, I realize that it is difficult to keep 
him out of the games. He probably will play again within
a few weeks unless the x-ray pictures show a serious
injury, which is of course possible. Although many
members of the squad were worn out and painfully
bruised during the contest, Hank Bruder was the only
other major casualty. Bruder's shoulder was injured and
he was kicked in the head." Dr. Kelly expected a 
number of players with minor injuries to report to him
OCT 14 (Green Bay) - Most of the crowd in the stands
may not have realized it, but the players on both teams
in the Packer-Cardinal tussle here knew that it was one
of the hardest fought contests they have been in for
some time. It wasn't dirty, there were few evidences of
rule violations, but the blocking was so crushing, the
tackling so jolting and the plunging so violent that every
man who saw action was ready for a good recuperation
today. Eight Packer players either left the game with
injuries and were so battered and bruised that they will
not be back in shape for several days. Johnny Blood
was the main Packer casualty. He was rushing in to
block a pass to Creighton in the third quarter when he
was knocked so unconscious that it took the trainers
several minutes to bring him around. He still was only
partly conscious when he was removed to a hospital in
an ambulance. Creighton caught the pass, and he
appeared to have run past Blood when the latter fell.
Schwammel had also rushed in on the play. Al Rose,
Cal Hubbard, Frank Butler, Herman Schneidman and Hank Bruder also left the game with injuries. Buckets Goldenberg was so generally worn out that he was taken out, and although Mike Michalske played right up to the bitter end he was almost out on his feet from exhaustion...Mike's playing yesterday was outstanding in the line, and even when he could hardly get to his feet after each play in the final minutes, the Cards didn't come through left guard and make any yardage. He tackled Sarboe like a pile drive coming home, after the latter had caught a punt in the third period, and Michalske was taken out for a rest. The crowd gave him a rising ovation...The appearance of George Raft, screen star, at the game caused considerable excitement. His costume was a model of sartorial brilliance. He wore a deep maroon flannel shirt with a brightly colored tie, a brown and white checkered coat, brown hat and gray trousers. He was the center of interest for photographers and autograph hunters, but he wore a bandage wound around his right thumb and escaped the latter. During the half, he was out in one of the aisles, and even there his admirers found him. As he walked along, he was handed hot dog, bottles of pop and anything else that came into people's mind. One fan, sighting the brilliant coat from the top of the bleachers, hollered down, "Hey, George, where's the pants to that suit?" Women's interest in Raft was somewhat lessened when they saw how badly he needed a haircut...Getting back to the ball game, several Cardinal players played magnificent ball during the whole afternoon. Among them were Lew Gordon, that big right tackle, who's in on every play and every argument too; Sarboe, the Cardinal quarterback who is developing into one of the best all-around men on the team; Mikulak, who played one of his best games against the Packers, and who knew he had to; and Handler, a substitute guard who was on the bottom of every line play. In the third period during a timeout, Mikulak was sitting on the ground near the Packer bench and conversed with the local boys. Rather than razzing he took at Green Bay in the first game this year, thought, "Iron Mike" got praise for his playing. "Boy, the game's gettin' tough," was his only reply between deep, fast breaths...George Sauer gave the stands an exhibition of tackling in the third period when they won't forget for some time. When George tackles every ounce of his 204 pounds is behind it, and when he is through tackling the ball carrier is flat on his face or back on the ground. Hank Bruder was nailing everybody in sight from the fullback position in the second quarter during a Cardinal threat and stopped a possible touchdown, but on fourth down Pardonner booted his dropkick through the uprights. Ernie Smith came into the game in the last quarter and was in on every tackle that came his side of the line. Tar Schwammel also did some wonderful work while the Packers were being pushed back to their goal in the last half...In the last quarter Smith pulled one that gave the stands a big laugh. Sarboe was carrying the ball when he was tackled and the whistle blew. He broke away though and ran for the goal. Smith took after him but caught him by the headgear when came off in his hands and the fleet quarterback sped on. Smith wound up and threw the headgear, catching Sarboe in the back of the head. The play was called back, however...Sarboe made a beautiful interception of a last desperate Herber to Hutson pass in the closing minutes to end any chance of the Packers scoring. It was a long arching pass, and Sarboe was covering Hutson, when suddenly he looked up over his shoulder, and took the pass right down in front of his face, turned and brought it back deep into Green Bay territory...Bobby Cahn, diminutive umpire, again came in for his share of attention. In the first quarter he drew boos from the stands, when he blew his whistle just the Packers were coming out of a huddle, rushed up to the ball and moved it several inches to the left. Again in the final period he had several run-ins with Creighton, Cardinal playing coach. One time he was heard to shout at Creighton, "I don't like the rule, either, but I'm not making them!"
OCT 14 (Green Bay) - You never felt more sorry for a bunch of fighting men than you did for the Packers during the fourth period of the game in Milwaukee. The boys were losing a heartbreaker, and they knew it. It showed in every one of their faces, but they had the stuff to toss those Cardinals back twice on the goal line near the end of the game...Tough to pick out individual stars. The team never worked harder. You never saw more breaks go the wrong way. You were glad when the final whistle blows. The Packers seemed to be taking such an unnecessary pounding through that last period. It made you forget the yardage they piled up during the first half, enabling them to outgain the Cardinals by more than 100 yards for the game. You were resentful about the team's failure to attempt goals from the field when in scoring distance. Twice orders to kick were sent in and disregarded, while Lambeau raged along the sidelines. Maybe the Cardinals looked too soft...You hated the Cardinals through the last half, for no other reason than that they looked like a great ball team. You wished the Packers could click and keep clicking. You forgot for the moment that some day you'll watch this same gang of young Packers tear apart a powerful opponent for the championship of the National league. You hopes that game wouldn't be played on the 13th of the month...We're telling you that 18 Packers figured in the tackling summary yesterday, but it was the veteran Buckets Goldenberg, playing before his hometown folks, who got the most for Green Bay. Buckets snagged himself nine vicious tackles. Right behind him was Milt Gantenbein with eight, Mike Michalske and Tar Schwammel each got seven. Herman Schneidman, Ernie Smith and Hank Bruder each was credited with five. Four apiece went to Frank Butler, Swede Johnston and George Sauer. Three apiece to Cal Hubbard, Lon Evans and Al Rose. Tipton and Mikulak each got eight for the Cards...Schneidman' tackle of Pangle after a pass interception near the end of the game was one of the hardest of the afternoon, and the Packer quarterback was injured on the play. Ernie Smith got his tackles all in a bunch the Cardinals at the goal line in the fourth period, grabbed several tackles in succession, getting some able from Michalske on several plays. Mike was so tired at the finish he could hardly stand, but finish he did. Many of the spectators regarded the play of the veteran Walt Kiesling as among the best of the afternoon. Everyone seemed to like the game, regardless of the crowd's pro-Packers attitude, even the waiters in the restaurant after the game were raving about it, and telling each other they'd be on hand to see the Bays play the Lions next Sunday.
OCT 15 (Detroit) - The Detroit Lions' 17-7 victory over the Boston Redskins Sunday in the Hub City was not earned without a number of injuries. Most serious on the list of casualties is big Jack Johnson, left tackle, who came out of the Lions-Indians fray with a badly twisted left ankle. The injury is certain to keep Johnson out of the Green Bay Packers game next Sunday in Milwaukee and may keep him on the sidelines until after the Lions' next home game here Wednesday night, Oct. 30, with the Boston club. The 215-pound cowboy has played through 13 league games last season without a mark. He has participated in three games this year. Glenn Presnell, sparkplug of the Lions' attack on their Eastern trip, came out of Sunday's hard fought struggle with a cracked rib. While the injury is a source of aggravation to the former Cornhusker All-American, it is likely he will see service against the Packers this weekend. Sam Knox, guard, limped from the train at the Michigan Central depot Monday afternoon with his left leg in a cast. He pulled a tendon in the Brooklyn Dodgers game Oct. 6. Coach George (Potsy) Clark, elated by the fact that his team has stopped fumbling long enough to whip Boston, was far from satisfied with the showing the Lions made against the Indians.
OCT 15 (Green Bay) - Doggedly back at work with the memory of a football game which should have been theirs to bother them, the Green Bay Packers today started shaping an attack of sufficient strength to bother the powerful Detroit Lions, their next NFL opponent. Newspaper men who covered last Sunday's Packer-Cardinal game at Milwaukee were unanimous in their opinions that the Green Bay team should have won by a comfortable margin, although they credited the Cardinals with possessing a great machine...FAILED TO KICK: All sports writers criticized the Packers sharply for not kicking field goals when football strategy indicated such a procedure as the obvious course, some of them without knowledge of the fact that instructions to kick were sent into the game twice, and ignored. All scribes agreed that the Packer team played exceptionally hard football, and deserved much better than a three-point defeat. Johnny Blood, the halfback who was calling signals during the first two goal-line marches, remained at St. Mary's hospital, Milwaukee, today recuperating from a cerebral concussion, but his condition was reported by Dr. W.W. Kelly, medical advisor, as "much improved". "X-ray pictures taken of Blood yesterday," Dr. Kelly stated, "revealed no fracture and Blood's condition now is improving rapidly."...PLAYED GREAT BALL: Blood, despite his failure to follow instructions from the bench, played brilliant football for the Packers Sunday, guiding the team with particular skill in the first half, when he mixed running plays and passes to baffle the Cardinals time after time - except near the goal line. His loss may be felt when the Packers meet the Lions on Sunday. Another report on the injured back was given by Lloyd Larson, Big Ten official and Milwaukee football writer, who visited Johnny in the hospital. He said that Blood is being permitted to rest at all time, that he is in good spirits and cheerful, and except for occasional dizzy spells is feeling much improved...SQUAD IS FIT: With the exception of Blood and Roger Grove, the entire squad apparently will be fit for action against Detroit Sunday. There are no major injuries, although Hank Bruder was considerably shaken up. Al Rose, who played one of his greatest games Sunday, has an injury to his foot. Joe Laws picked up a painful hand injury, and Milt Gantenbein also has an injured hand. Clarke Hinkle will be in shape to take a regular turn in the backfield. Hinkle came gamely off the bench Sunday, despite the fact that he wasn't looking well, and smacked the Cardinals hard for a few plays. He'll be ready for a longer stretch against the Lions.
OCT 15 (Green Bay) - Football lines on the Detroit Lions, the National league team which the Green Bay Packers will meet at Milwaukee next Sunday: Dutch Clark, veteran quarterback, has been termed the "Ty Cobb of baseball" because of his daring and unexpected feats...was an all-Rocky Mountain conference man from 1927 to 1929...scored 100 points during his last year in college...said to be the best drop kicker since Charles Brickley at Harvard...deadly punter within the 50 yard line...Bronko Nagurski says he's the hardest man in the league to tackle. They're calling Ernie Caddel "the blond antelope"...extremely fast...it''ll be fun watching him start around Hutson's wing...scored three touchdowns for Standford against Dartmouth in 1931...was with the Portsmouth Spartans of 1933. Ace Gutowsky, the human battering ram, was born in Komolty, Russia...everyone knows where Komolty is...it's in Russia...another Portsmouth veteran...usually played the full 60 minutes for the Spartans. Packer fans haven't forgotten Glenn Presnell...he's the individual who kicked a 54-yard placement against Green Bay here last fall, giving the Lions a 3 to 0 victory...the boot was the the longest ever made in the National league...another one of those Nebraska All-Americans...received 49 of 50 possible votes for all-pro quarterback in 1933.
OCT 15 (Detroit) - Fresh from their 17 to 7 scalping of the Redskins in Boston last Sunday, the Detroit Lions started practice today for the game with the Green Bay Packers in Milwaukee next weekend. Although the Chicago Cards nosed out the Packers last Sunday, Detroit scouts reported to Coach Potsy Clark that Green Bay won everything but the ball game. The Lions' pilot has had the Bays "looked over" at every game and his gridiron sleuths think Coach Curly Lambeau has one of the best elevens in the circuit. The Lions came out of the Boston contest in good physical shape and aside from Randolph and Hupke, the squad is fit. One of the Boston Redskins walked all over Randolph's right hand, while Hupke has a twisted knee...THREE NEW FACES: There will probably be three first year men in the Lions' starting lineup against Green Bay. Ed Klewicki, one of Michigan State's all-time gridiron heroes, is slated for duty at left end, while Regis Monahan, Ohio State's great guard and captain in 1934, will be flanking the center from the port side. The other newcomer is Red Stacy of Oklahoma university, who has been playing sensational ball at right tackle. The Lions's powerhouse backfield, Clark, Presnell, Caddel and Gutowsky, clicked perfectly in the Boston game and Coach Clark plans to turn the quartet loose at the first kickoff Sunday. Dutch Clark, who calls the signals and directs the team on the field, is one of the greatest backs in the circuit. Ever since he first saw service with the Portsmouth Spartans, he has been a thorn in the side of the Packers...LEAVE SATURDAY NOON: Coach Clark and his huskies will leave here at noon Saturday for Milwaukee. According to present plans, the Lions are to stop over in Chicago for the night and make the last lap of the trip early Sunday morning. While in Milwaukee, Detroit will headquarters at the Schroeder hotel. President George A. Richards of the Lions will head a delegation of Detroit rooters at the game. Among the other Lions' executives who will be in the part are: P.M. Thomas, treasurer, and William A. Alfs, vice president.
OCT 15 (Stevens Point) - There won't be any title won in the state teachers college conference football race this year. Ousting of Stevens Point from the loop automatically precludes any possibility of a championship for the remaining four teams, it was learned today. To quote the rule book: "A football schedule of four sectional game shall be necessary to secure a conference rating." Local observers interpret this to mean that a team must play at least four games to win a title. When Stevens Point was barred from the league, Milwaukee, Whitewater, Platteville and Oshkosh were left with only three games each. Platteville defeated Stevens Point a week ago in a game it is understood will not be marked in the league standings. The Pointers were ousted from the league for taking part in pre-season games with the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears.
OCT 16 (Green Bay) - Dave Woodward, veteran trainer of athletic teams who served 12 years with the University of Minnesota athletic department, has been secured as trainer of the Green Bay Packers, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. Woodward began his work here this morning. A native of Rochester, N.Y., Woodward got his start as high school trainer, and later as trainer of the Rochester baseball team. He handled the same assignment this summer for the College All-Stars in Chicago, and for the past month has worked with the Chicago Bears. He left the latter position when Andy Lotshaw, Cubs' trainer, completed his baseball work and rejoined the Bears...STUDIES BANDAGING, TAPING: Woodward specializes in massages, bandaging, taping and other necessaries of gridiron warfare. His position will not affect the status of Bud Jorgenson, Packer property manager for the past 12 years, who will continue with his regular duties. The new trainer has made a careful study of common athletic injuries, and gave a demonstration as recently as last summer at the Northwestern university coaching school. He is expected to be of real benefit to the Packers. In the meantime, the team continued its strenuous training program for next Sunday's National league encounter with the Detroit Lions at Milwaukee. Word from the latter city indicated that interest of football fans is running even higher than before the Packer-Cardinal contest, during which the Bays gave a beautiful demonstration of football...ANOTHER BIG CROWD: With decent weather, another crowd of 13,000 or upward is expected to be present. Johnny Blood, injured halfback, continues to show improvement at St. Mary's hospital, Milwaukee, and he probably will be removed to a Green Bay hospital within a few days. If Blood displays his usual phenomenal stamina, he may be in shape to play against the Chicago Bears a week from Sunday - an occasion when he'll apparently be needed. The Packer squad held a long skull session at the Beaumont hotel last night, mapping out strategy for the game against the Lions.
OCT 16 (Green Bay) - Before you start talking about the 1936 football championship, take notice of the peculiar breaks left in the 1935 schedule - a series of games which may just possibly wind up with the Packers in a commanding spot. Fans who are complaining because of the toughness of the current three-game series involving the Packers and the Cardinals, Lions and Bears, may also display some sympathy for those last three clubs, who are slated to do considerable throat slicing during the closing month of the campaign. The Packers have remaining on their schedule only five key games, assuming that neither Philadelphia nor Pittsburgh can be rated an outstanding team. These contest are with Detroit, three game, and one each with the Bears and Cardinals. The Cardinals, on the other hand, are confronted with seven key games - two with the Bears, and one each with Detroit, Green Bay, Boston, Brooklyn and New York. Nine key game remain on the Bears' schedule - two each with the Cardinals, Detroit and New York, and one each with Green Bay, Boston and Brooklyn. Before the Detroit Lions wind up their season they'll face eight key opponents - Green Bay three times, Bears twice, Boston, Cardinals and Brooklyn once each. It's a long road that has no goal line.
OCT 16 (Milwaukee) - Another big crowd of football fans is expected for the National league games between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions at State Fair park next Sunday. Last weekend some 13,000 gridiron enthusiasts saw the Packers drop a heart breaking 3-0 contest to the Chicago Cardinals, and, from the talk heard throughout the city, nearly all the spectators are coming back for more. It was a brilliant exhibition of football and the hard, bruising play of the contestants has the fans still talking about the game. This will be the first time that Detroit has ever played in Milwaukee. The Lions are ranked as one of the topnotch aggregations in the postgraduate wheel and many of the local gridiron followers are anxious to get a glimpse of Dutch Clark, the Christensens, Glenn Presnell and other stars of the Detroit machine in action...BRISK TICKET SALE: The advance ticket sale at the Journal and Sentinel offices and the other places about town gives every indication of a bumper throng. There seems to be increased interest in the suburban cities, while Kenosha and Racine will send hundreds to Sunday's game. A number of neighboring high schools have ordered blocks of seats for their teams and three of the college squads in the immediate vicinity will be represented 100 percent. The state fair management will eliminate the last hour game at the gates this Sunday by opening more of the turnstile entrances and additional ticket selling booths will be operated to handle the hundreds who always wait until the last minute to purchase ducats.
OCT 16 (Neenah) - The Schneller family and all their friends will attend the Green Bay-Detroit game in Milwaukee Sunday to see "Big John" Schneller, former Neenah high and Wisconsin U star, do his stuff for the Lions. Schneller joined the Portsmouth Spartans in 1933 and the scrappy wingman was taken along to Detroit when the Portsmouth franchise was moved to the Motor city. John always plays great football against Green Bay and his friends are confident that he will be very much in evidence this Sunday in the gridiron combat at State fair park.
OCT 16 (Green Bay) - In an effort to prove they are out 
to regain the title of world champions, which they lost to
the New York Giants last season, the Chicago Bears
have added the defensive laurels while retaining the
offensive leadership during the last week of play in the
NFL, according to statistics compiled today. The Bears
increased their total of yards gained to 1,033 in three
games and have held the opposition to 472 and only 14
points. The Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers are
second and third best offensive teams in average yards
gained per game. The champion Giants still lead in
scoring with 79 points, in forward passing with 19 out of
45 for 42 percent, and also are the best offensive team
in the east with 809 yards gained. The Chicago Cards,
the only undefeated team in the circuit, and the Packers are second best forward passing teams with 36 percent completed. Detroit is the second best scoring team with 72 points.
OCT 16 (Green Bay) - Doggedly back at work with the memory of a football game which should have been theirs to bother them, the Green Bay Packers have started shaping an attack of sufficient strength to bother the powerful Detroit Lions, their next National Professional Football league opponents. Green Bay and Detroit will clash at State Fair park, Milwaukee, next Sunday afternoon. Newspaper men who covered last Sunday's Packer-Cardinal game at Milwaukee were unanimous in their opinions that the Green Bay team should have won by a comfortable margin, although they credited the Cardinals with possessing a great machine. All sportswriters criticized the Packers sharply for not kicking field goals when football strategy indicated such a procedure as the obvious course, some of them without knowledge of the fact that instructions to kick were sent into the game twice, and ignored. All scribes agreed that the Packer team played exceptionally hard football, and deserved much better than a three-point deficit. Johnny Blood, the halfback who was calling signals during the first two goal line marches, remained at St. Mary's hospital, Milwaukee, today, recuperating from a cerebral concussion, but his condition was reported by Dr. W.W. Kelly, medical adviser, as "much improved". "X-ray pictures taken of Blood yesterday," Dr. Kelly stated, "revealed no fracture, and Blood's condition now is improving rapidly." Blood, despite his failure to follow instructions from the bench, played brilliant football for the Packers Sunday, guiding the team with particular skill in the first half, when he mixed running plays and passes to baffle the Cardinals time after time - except near the goal line. His loss may be felt when the Packers meet the Lions on Sunday. Another report on the injured back was given by Lloyd Larson, Big Ten official and Milwaukee football writer, who visited Johnny in the hospital. He said that Blood is being permitted to rest at all times, that he is in good spirits and cheerful, and except for occasional dizzy spells is feeling much improved. With the exception of Blood and Roger Grove, the entire squad apparently will be fit for action against Detroit Sunday. There are no major injuries, although Hank Bruder was considerably shaken up. Al Rose, who played one of his greatest games Sunday, has an injury to his foot, Joe Laws picked up a painful hand injury, and Milton Gantenbein also has an injured hand. Clark Hinkle will be in shape to take a regular turn in the backfield. Hinkle came gamely off the bench Sunday, despite the fact that he wasn't looking well and smacked the Cardinals hard for a few plays. He'll be ready for a longer stretch against the Lions.
OCT 17 (Green Bay) - Green Bay Packer fans today pinned a lot of hope on Rog Grove, first string quarterback, who yesterday reported for drill after nearly a whole season of bench warming because of injury. Fans hope Grove will in a measure offset the loss of Johnny Blood, injured in the Packer-Cardinal game in Milwaukee last Sunday. The Bays again play in Milwaukee Sunday, this time with the Detroit Lions. Meantime, Coach Curly Lambeau continued his secret practices as the boys wound up their week of preparation. With the exception of Blood, who is still in a Milwaukee hospital, the squad is in excellent physical condition. The Lions of Detroit, fresh from their 17 to 7 victory over the Boston Redskins last Sunday, were encouraged by the defeat the Lambeau boys had at the hands of the Cardinals. But then the Detroit boys didn't see the game in Milwaukee and perhaps didn't know the Cardinals were outplayed by a wide margin throughout most of the game.
OCT 17 (Detroit) - The usually amiable George (Potsy) Clark, Detroit Lions football coach, went on the war path Wednesday for the first time this season at the team's workout at Kelsey Field. George Potsy delivered one of his inimitable tongue lashings to the squad, in which he informed them that there were five members on the team who soon will find themselves representing another club unless they start playing - pronto - the type of football of which they are capable. Potsy's oratorical outburst and his threat to drop five members of the Lions' squad came as a surprise. Last Sunday Clark's club whipped the Boston Redskins, 17 to 7, and turned in their best performance of the season. After the game Clark admitted his team had made a splendid showing and he was certain they had started to click...REPORT DOES IT: Wednesday morning at practice, in preparation for the Lions' approaching game this Sunday with the Green Bay Packers at Milwaukee, Clark started to read his scout's report to the squad on the Cardinals-Packers game of last week. Item No. 1 on page one of the report was responsible for the coach's flareup. The item called attention to the fact that nine of the Packers' players needed assistance when leaving the playing field after the game because of the beatings they had taken from the Red Birds. George Potsy's eyes flashed as he repeated the item...PLAYING HEADS-UP: "That's the reason the Cardinals are the only undefeated team in the league," Clark roared. "They're playing this game of football as it should be played. They're giving everything they have when on the playing field. They're following the ball, charging, blocking, rushing passers, not asking for any quarter, with the result they are going places. Starting Sunday we're going to play the same type of football as we are capable of doing, or several of you men will find yourselves out of a Lions' uniform."
OCT 17 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers are gearing up for their offensive machinery for a resounding cuff at the Detroit Lions, their opponents of next Sunday, at State Fair park, Milwaukee. Coach E.L. Lambeau yesterday sent into action at City stadium a backfield including Clarke Hinkle, George Sauer, Arnold Herber and Hank Bruder, and the combination worked excellently. With all the Packers except Johnny Blood and Roger Grove now available for service and in good condition, Lambeau hopes to avoid a repetition of the distressing game at Milwaukee last Sunday, when the Packers pushed the Chicago Cardinals all over the field, but failed to score. "We're working heavily on offense," Lambeau announced after the practice. "We hope to perfect an attack which will carry the ball deep into Detroit territory for possible touchdowns. If we can, we'll score those touchdowns, but if we can't: We'll kick." The mixup at Milwaukee, when the Packers didn't kick for almost certain points which would have won the game, have been straightened out satisfactorily. Somebody apparently didn't understand somebody else correctly, but Lambeau emphasized that the situation wouldn't occur again. To make that point more apparent, he had his goal kickers working overtime yesterday, booting kick after kick from the field, from all yard lines and from every angle. Tar Schwammel has drawn the most attention, as Lambeau feels that with a reasonable break, the big tackle, who is playing the game of his life, can bang over a couple of three pointers. Because of the rain, the Packers did not practice this morning, but a session was called for 2:30 this afternoon...HUBBARD HAS COLD: Cal Hubbard, who has a bad cold, was not out for practice yesterday, but he is expected to be on hand for Sunday's assault against the Lions. The Detroit offensive, with which the Packers are only too familiar, is coming in for plenty of attention. The Lions use a single wingback most of the time, although occasionally they dip into a double wingback which is a speaking acquaintance of the Warner system. The most effective Detroit backfield consists of Dutch Clark, quarterback, Frank Christensen and Ernie Caddel, halfbacks, and Ace Gutowsky, full. This combination is capable of producing a fair passing attack and a ruinous ground campaign, all of which points to a busy afternoon for the Packers first line of defense. Regis Monahan, Ohio State's great captain of 1934, is the standout among the newcomers in the line, and is about the only first year man who is causing the Bays any amount of worry.
OCT 17 (Green Bay) - A couple of very interesting - and very different football personalities, are Lavvie Dilweg  and Dave Woodward. Probably they've met. Undoubtedly they've heard of each other. One probably possesses as great an interest in the Green Bay Packers as any other person, and the other will develop a feeling nearly as strong. Lavvie spoke to the Ambassador club the other night, giving as interesting and enlightening discussion of the Packer team as you'd
ever be able to hear. He wasn't afraid to call a shovel
pass a shovel pass, but when he finished you feel very
optimistic about the future of Green Bay's greatest sport
unit. You have to love the game to play it well, says
Lavvie, who ought to know - he never knew how to play
poor football. He mentioned Milt Gantenbein, Verne
Lewellen, Goerge Sauer - three players from different
eras of Packer football - as men who obviously liked to
play the game, irregardless of injury or pay check. Dave
Woodward doesn't know how much about the Packers,
except from heresay, but he'll soon be as well 
acquainted with all of them as anyone. He's just been
secured as athletic trainer for the squad, which will
enable him to rub shoulders - and legs and knees - with
the best of them. Quite a pride Davis takes in his work.
The trainer, he says, stands between the specialists 
and the coach. The specialist knows when the players
shouldn't play, the coach wants him to play, and the
trainer must satisfy both. But the real assignment, Dave
admits, is up to the athlete himself.
OCT 17 (Detroit) - The Detroit Lions will be in the best 
of condition for the game at Milwaukee on Sunday with
the Green Bay Packers, according to Coach Potsy 
Clark, who figures that the contest with the great
Wisconsin eleven will be the turning point in his team's
schedule. "We've got to beat Green Bay to stay in the
running for the championship," asserted the Lions'
pilot, "and I think the boys are ready to put it over. It will
be a battle royal as the Green Bay squad ranks with
​the best in the circuit. That Hutson-Herber foward
passing combination is enough to give a coach the
'jimmies'."...NO ONE INJURED: "For the first time this
season there isn't a man on our hospital list and we will
be able to shoot the works against the Packers. It
should be our best game of the season." The Detroit
club started off the schedule at a championship clip by
defeating Philadelphia in the opening game here, Sept.
20, 35 to 0. The Lions bumped into trouble Sept. 29
when the Chicago Cardinals invaded Detroit but a last
quarter spurt enabled the Clark-men to finish up with a
10-10 ties. The Lions were handed a rude surprise in
Brooklyn Oct. 6 when the Dodgers chalked up a 12 to
10 victory. This was a ding-dong battle with Father
Lumpkin, ex-Detroit ace, playing a whale of a game for
​Brooklyn. Last Sunday Detroit seemed to hit its stride
and the Boston Redskins were bowled over by a 17 to 7
OCT 17 (New York) - At the conclusion of the fifth week
of play in the NFL, Ernie Caddel, of the Detroit Lions
and formerly of Stanford, still is the leading ground
gainer of the circuit, while Dale Burnett, of the New York
Giants and Emporia Teachers, retains his hold on first
place among the point scorers, according to statistics
compiled today. Caddel has gained 268 yards in 30
attempts, keeping up his average of 8.9 yards per clip as of last week. Burnett's 30 points put him ahead of Caddel and Red Pollock, Chicago Bears, who are tied for second with 24 points. Kink Richards, Giants, has jumped from fourth to second in ground gaining during the past week and now has a total of 178 yards. Ronzani and Grosvenor, Chicago Bears, Battles, Boston Redskins, Danowski, Giants, and Clark, Detroit, are closely bunched behind Ricards...DANOWSKI BEST PASSER: Ed Danowski, Giants, and former Fordham flash, with 18 completed out of 40, is still the best passer in the league. John Gildea, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Arnold Herber, Green Bay Packers, are second and third. Luke Johnsos, Bears end, has caught nine passes for 126 yards and rates as the best pass receiver. Glenn Presnell, Detroit, and Ralph Kercheval, Brooklyn Dodgers, are tied for field goal honors with three each.
OCT17 (Columbus, OH) - Bobby Cahn, one of the ace officials in the National league, has been named by President Joe F. Carr to referee the Detroit-Green Bay game which will be played at State Fair park, Milwaukee, Sunday. Gunnar Elliott of Fort Wayne, Ind., has drawn the umpire's assignment; Judge Morris M. Meyer of Cleveland is the headlinesman and Dan Tehan of Cincinnati will be the field judge. This is the same set of officials who worked the Packer-Chicago Cardinal game in Milwaukee last Sunday.
OCT 19 (Milwaukee) - Two of the best forward passers in the National Professional league will tangle here Sunday when the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions clash at the state fair park. The Packers have been grooming Arnold Herber, who led the circuit in forward passing last year for plenty of work against the Lions. Detroit will have Earl (Dutch) Clark, flash quarterback, and also a great passer, ready for service. Green Bay will only have one regular quarterback available, as Roger Grove and Johnny Blood are definitely out, due to injuries. Grove worked out with the team this week and it was hoped he would be able to play, but his injured leg could not stand the strain and he had to retire after short sessions. Blood is suffering a concussion, received in the Cardinal game here last Sunday. The Packers must win to remain in the running for the western division title, as they have two defeats chalked against their record. Both were at the hands of the Cardinals. Coach E.L. Lambeau indicated Saturday that he would use Herber as a quarterback if Joe Laws needed relief. Herber has called signals occasionally but performs best at a running back position. With good weather the Packer management expects a turnout of 12,000 or more.
OCT 19 (Green Bay) - "We're going to Milwaukee and we're going there to win!" Those were the last words
