Gutowsky. At ends Clark plans to start Ed Klewicki and John Schneller. Klewicki's play since returning to an end position from left halfback has been one of the highlights of the Lions' season to date. Big George Christensen and Jack Johnson will hold down the tackle posts for the Lions. Ox Emerson and Sam Knox will be at guards. Clare Randolph will be at center.
PACKERS WILL GET WIRES FROM HOME
NOV 16 (Detroit) - When the Green Bay Packers sit down to breakfast in their Detroit hotel tomorrow morning, as the zero hour of their football game approaches, they will be deluged with telegrams from Green Bay. Each player eligible for service will receive several telegrams signed by Packer directors, businessmen and loyal fans. As the cost of the telegrams will be only a few cents each, any backer of the team which wishes to be remembered to the players is urged to call Postal Telegraph tonight and place his order.
TWO BROADCASTS OF BATTLE FROM DETROIT
NOV 16 (Detroit) - Two radio broadcasts of tomorrow's Packer-Lion game at Detroit will be available to Green Bay fans. Station WHBY will broadcast a telegraphic account of the crucial National league struggle under sponsorship of Walker's Cleaners and Tailors, starting at 1 o'clock, which is game time. Station WTMJ, Milwaukee will broadcast directly from the field at the University of Detroit stadium, with Russ Winnie at the microphone. Reports that the WTMJ broadcast would be telegraphic, the Wadham's Oil Company has announced, are unfounded.
NOV 16 (Detroit) - Potsy Clark, coach of the Detroit Lions, would not let the Packers work out at the University of Detroit stadium today, claiming that the gridiron was covered with rubber raincoats in order to be in shape for tomorrow's game. However, the kind-hearted Potsy did arrange for the Packers to work out at the Wayne college stadium just a few blocks from the Bellecrest hotel. This field evidently has been where the Lions worked out, because there was a big sign hung between the goal posts, "Beat Green Bay". As the Packers dashed on the field for practice they glimpsed the sign and about a minute later a half dozen big Green Bayites had pulled it down and stamped it in the mud. The boys had one of the best workouts of the season. Cal Hubbard directed and the big fellow kept the players moving at a lively clip. Today's rooting delegation at the practice included A.B. Turnbull, Verne C. Lewellen and Frank J. Jonet.
PACKER SQUAD ARRIVES IN DETROIT
NOV 16 (Detroit) - A drizzling rain which has been falling here for two days continued today, placing sour looks on the faces who are backing the Detroit Lions in their efforts to check the Green Bay Packers' championship dash. The lack of cheer was due to two
reasons: that play on a rain swept field will handicap the
Lions, badly outweighed by the Packers, and that the
overcast skies may cut into the attendance total. The
Packers arrived at 7:45 this morning, and went directly
to the Bellecrest hotel. They looked fit and ready for
action. This afternoon the Packer team was scheduled
to take a workout at the University of Detroit stadium,
where they will play tomorrow, but there was some
doubt as to whether the canvas covering of the field
would be removed, as Detroit officials are anxious to
keep the stadium as dry as possible. If the weather
breaks by tomorrow, one of the biggest crowds in
Detroit's football history is expected to crowd into the
stadium, for this game, drummed up as a grudge battle,
has attracted wide interest throughout the metropolitan
area. Detroit fans are of the opinion that the Packers
took advantage of their team last week, then the Green
Bay field was covered with sand, and the Packers
waded through for a 31 to 7 victory. The Lions are very
confident that the Green Bay team did not deserve such
a wide victory margin, and they are prepared for a last
ditch stand Sunday...BEARS MAY PROFIT: Game time
will be 2 o'clock (1 p.m. Central Standard Time). A loss
for Detroit definitely will remove them from a contending
position in the Western division race, while a whipping
for Green Bay would place the Chicago Bears in a
position of prohibitive favorites. The Packers, according
to Coach E.L. Lambeau, are in poor shape for the game
but the team looks tough and willing. Hank Bruder,
former Northwestern back, is about the worst injured,
but such players as George Sauer, Clark Hinkle, Milt
Gantenbein and Mike Michalske, who were a collective
set of nuisances to the Lions last week, are wandering
about apparently in the pink of condition. The Packers
have no doubt about the outcome of the game. When
one of them is interviewed, he merely says: "Of course,
we'll win the game. We have to win it" and that's all the
satisfaction he gives. The Lions, on the other hand, are
jittery and prepared for a last ditch battle.
PRO GRID NOTES
NOV 16 (Green Bay) - The New York Giants, who are
determined to get even with the Bears for their 20 to 3
defeat received at the Polo Grounds several weeks ago,
will lock horns with the House of Halas this Sunday at
Wrigley field in the Windy City...The Chicago Cardinals
still very much in the race for the Western division
championship are apt to have a tough hurdle to jump in
Brooklyn this weekend as Coach Paul Schissler of the
Dodgers has some old scores to settle...The cellar
position battle will be resumed at Philadelphia where the
Boston Redskins are billed for a return engagement with
the Eagles. When these teams met in Boston recently
it was a stormy fracas with fists flying...Going into the
fourth quarter on the short end of a 3 to 0 score, Milan
Creighton's Chi-Cards stepped on the gas and put over
a couple of touchdowns to down Lud Wray's Eagles by
a 12 to 3 count...Carl Jorgensen, Eagles' tackle came in
as a "pinch" kicker about midway in the third stanza
and booted a field goal from the 25-yard stripe but the
Phils could not hold their advantage once the Cardinals
started pressing...Tony Blazine paved the way for the
Cards first "touch" when he blocked a punt and Bob
Neuman scooped up the ball and stepped five yards for
a score. Mikulak made the other touchdown after a
march down the field..Izzy Weinstock, former Pittsburgh
backfield ace, is beginning to get the "feel" of pro
football and his improved play during the last four games
has been the high spot of the Philadelphia Eagles'
offensive...One of the leading freshman backs in the pro
loop is Ike Peterson, the Chicago Cards' recruit from the
Pacific coast. Peterson is a flashy pass receiver, skirts
the end well and performs like a veteran on spinners...
Brooklyn's hopes of assuming the leadership in the
eastern loop when haywire last Sunday when the
Pittsburgh Pirates pinned back the ears of the Dodgers
16 to 7. Despite rain some 16,000 spectators witnessed
the fracas...Moe Levey, former Quantico Marine ace,
carried the load for the Pirates by scoring touchdowns
in the first and fourth quarters and Armand Niccolai
made his weekly goal from the field during the third
round...Jack Grossman, one of Rutger's greats,
accounted for Brooklyn's "six-pointer" early in the game.
After the final whistle blew, the teams staged a fight for
possession of the ball and the Dodgers "won the ball...
Wayland Becker, who joined the Dodgers via Marquette
university and Chicago Bear route, probably won't play
any more football this season as he broke his jaw in
the Pittsburgh game of Nov. 3. Becker is a first class
end and punter...The Chicago Bears continued their
successful eastern invasion by taking Boston into camp
by a 30 to 14 score. Doug Nott, whom the Redskins secured in a trade with Detroit, played brilliantly for the Casey-men...Jim Musick tuned in with a Boston touchdown early in the game while Charlie Malone made the other Redskin counter in the final minute of play when he snagged a pass from Nott. Musick kicked both the Boston goals...The Bears' air attack was clicking on "all eleven". Bill Karr was on the receiving end of two touchdown passes; Bernie Masterson slashed off tackle while Beattie Feathers scored No. 4 and George Corbett added a field goal...Frank Sullivan is turning in a classy job at center for the Chicago Bears. The Loyola, New Orleans graduate is getting the nod from Coach George Halas over Ookie Miller and Ed Kawal, two of the Bruins' veteran snapper backs.
PACKERS RISK LEAGUE LEAD AGAINST LIONS
NOV 16 (Detroit) - A game that may ultimately eliminate one of the contesting teams from further championship consideration in the National Professional Football league will be played here Sunday when the Detroit Lions meet the Green Bay Packers at University of Detroit stadium. Kickoff is at 2 p.m. With the 31 to 7 defeat the Lions suffered at Green Bay serving as an especially strong impetus, Coach Potsy Clark's team spent a week of hard practice in determined effort to reverse the count Sunday. A win would put Detroit back in the running for the western division title. The Detroit mentor blamed his team's defeat largely upon sand that had been used in an effort to dry up some of the wet spots on the Green Bay gridiron. His team will be at full strength for the contest Sunday, and the game promises to be a classic in pro ball from start to finish. The Packers lineup was crippled considerably in last week's game with Clarke Hinkle, Hank Bruder, Milt Gantenbein, George Sauer and Mike Michalske all joining Frank Butler on the injured list. Most of this group is expected to be ready for action Sunday, however. The entire squad made the trip from Green Bay. The Wisconsin city's interest in its football club climbed to a new peak after last week's trimming of the Lions, and a proclamation by the mayor as well as statements from leaders of the principal businessmen's assocation urged citizens to the railroad station Friday for a spirited sendoff. Potsy Clark's defense has been drilled to check the Packer passing combination whic features Arnie Herber on the throwing end and Johnny Blood and Don Huton as receivers. The trio accounted for three of the four touchdowns scored by the Packers against the Lions in their last meeting.
PACKERS RULE 8-5 FAVORITES OVER LIONS
NOV 17 (Detroit) - Green Bay's Packers were poised here Saturday night determined to make it three straight over the Detroit Lions in the third and final game of their series at the University of Detroit stadium Sunday afternoon. At Milwaukee a month ago, the Packers won, 13-9, and at Green Bay last week, they repeated, 31-7. A determined bunch they were when they arrived early Saturday morning, with the cheers of a rousing civic sendoff at Green Bay Friday noon still in their ears. They held a half game lead over the Bears and Cards in the torrid western division race, and they meant to keep it. The Packers ruled 8-5 favorites despite the fact they arrived far from full strength. Sauer, Michalske, Gantenbein, Bruder, Hinkle and Butler all had injuries that, while not serious, promised to handicap them. The team took a light workout at a high school field Saturday morning. The game will either make or break the Lions for the season. Another defeat will drop them so far behind the leaders they can hardly hope to recover the lost ground. A victory, however, will put them right back in the thick of the fight. They have two games with the Bears still to play. All week Coach Potsy Clark has worked on a defense to stop Herber's deadly passes. Herber was the chief thorn in Detroit's side a week ago and they don't mean to let him be again. A heavy demand for tickets indicated that the game will draw close to 20,000 persons.
LIONS, PACKERS IN THIRD CLASH
NOV 17 (Detroit) - The Green Bay Packers, NFL champions in 1929, 1930 and 1931, and well on their way toward another title, engage the Detroit Lions at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon in the University of Detroit stadium. It will be the third meeting of the two clubs this season with the margin of victories belonging to the Packers with two victories to none for the Lions. Four weeks ago at Milwaukee, the Packers nosed out the men of George Potsy Clark, 13 to 9, and last Sunday at Green Bay handed the Lions a 31-7 trouncing. The game is an important one for both the Lions and Packers. A victory for Clark's gridders will put them back in the running for an interesting Western Division pennant chase and make their two games with the Chicago Bears, in the Windy City next week and Thanksgiving morning here, sure sellouts. While the Packers hold a two-game margin over the Bears, they cannot afford to suffer a loss at this time with the Bears being on the upgrade again after a slow start...REAL POWERHOUSE: Weight and power features the 1935 edition of the Packers. The tackles, guards and centers average 224 pounds; the ends average 202 pounds and the backfield men will take the field at 196 pounds. Earl L. (Curly) Lambeau, Packers' coach, has been fortunate in having three newcomers this season come through for him in sensational fashion to date. They are George Sauer, former Nebraska All-American, who was sought by every team in the National League during the winter and spring of 1935; Don Hutson, Alabama end, whose sensational work in snaring Dixie Howell's forward passes provided the highlight of last January's Rose Bowl game, and Chester (Swede) Johnston, last season a star with the St. Louis Gunners. This trio, with Arnold (Flash) Herber, current passing sensation of the League, together with the return to form of Clark Hinkle after a slow start, have helped make the Packers one of the best-balanced pro teams of all time...HARD TO STOP: The passing combination of Herber and Hutson has been mainly responsible for the four victories the Packers boast over the Chicago Bears and the Lions. Three weeks ago in Chicago, with the score 13 to 0 in favor of the Bears with only four minutes to go, Herber and Hutson swung into action and passed the Packers into a 14-13 victory over the astonished Bruins. Last Sunday at Green Bay Herber took delight in standing at his own 30 and 35-yard lines and picking Hutson out 40 yards away with his accurate tosses. When Hutson tired of catching Herber's heaves, Johnny Blood, Packer halfback, took up the job and scored twice against the hapless Lions in the last period. The Lions will enter the game in perfect condition. Throughout the week Potsy Clark has labored valiantly to work out a passing defense to stop the Packers' sensational aerial attack. "Give us a dry Sunday and we may fool the Packers," was Clark's prediction. The Michigan State College band of 85 pieces again will be on deck. Fair weather is expected to bring the attendance for the game to the 20,000 mark.
