ALL-AMERICA STARS TO APPEAR WITH REDSKINS
OCT 7 (Green Bay) - The colorful Redskins of Boston, carrying a lineup which reads like an All-America summary, will arrive here Saturday afternoon at 2:20 and twenty minutes less than 24 hours later will meet the Green Bay Packers in a NFL game at City stadium. The Redskins will arrive on the Chicago and Northwestern train, and will headquarter at the Beaumont hotel. Their game with the Packers will mark their first appearance here in two seasons, and they have a roster packed with the great names of American football - Pinckert, Weisenbaugh, Bausch, Musick, Edwards, Malone, Battles, Moran, Siemering, Rentner, Riley Smith, Ed Smith, Miller and others. Riley Smith and Wayne Millner were two of the brightest stars in the lineup of the College All Stars this season and they have been carrying with success in the Boston lineup. Despite last Sunday's 7 to 0 defeat by the New York Giants, the Redskins are favored to trip up the opposition throughout the Eastern sector and take that divisional crown this year. Officials for Sunday's game were announced today by Joe F. Carr, league president. C.K. ReBel, Duquesne, Pa., will referee, and the umpire will be L.J. Ritter, Detroit. M.M. Meyer, Toledo, will be headlinesman, and Wilfred Smith, Chicago, field judge...BAYS ARE BUSY: The Packers are not idle as the date for the important National league clash approaches. Coach E.L. Lambeau believes that Herman Schneidman, blocking quarterback who has been injured, will be ready to take his regular turn in the backfield, supplementing Hank Bruder and Cal Clemens at that position. This will keep the Packers well fortified in the important spot, as Bruder always plays great football and Clemens turned in an outstanding game against the Cardinals at Milwaukee last Sunday. Cal is hot on pass defense, intercepting a couple of tosses against the cardinals and breaking up half a dozen more aerials. The tickets are moving rapidly, one of the largest single blocs in Packer history having been sold to the Milwaukee Cheese company, which ordered 104 $2 seats and will send its membership in buses. These spectators will sit in one section, where they are expected to add enthusiastic support to the Packer cause...BULLET BAKER BACK: The game will be something of a homecoming for Roy (Bullet) Baker, assistant Boston coach and trainer, who formerly played with the Packers. Of the great names in the Boston backfield, probably the best known to football followers are Pinckert, Musick, Rentner, Riley Smith and Ed Smith. Here are a few notes on these outstanding Redskins, all of whom will appear here on Sunday:
Ernie Pinckert - One of the greatest products of Howard Jones at U.S.C...one of the game's greatest blocking backs and ball carriers...listed on every all-America his senior year at Southern Cal...now experiencing his fifth season of pro football...is a real student of the game, and has a brilliant future aside from the sport as salesman of football equipment...home is in Hollywood...has done extensive work acting in pictures and as consultant in football matters...much sought as after dinner speaker...six feet tall, weighs 200.

Riley Smith - Shared honors with Jay Berwanger as the outstanding college star of 1935...does everything well in the backfield, the perfect triple-threat man...rated one of the greatest blockers in the college ranks...much sought after by the Packers and others, but Boston got him via the preferred list...star in track at Alabama, accounting for speed on the gridiron...weighs 200 pounds, lives in Greenwood, Miss.

Tech...weighs 210, lives in New York.
PIRATES LEAD PASSING RACE
OCT 7 (Green Bay) - For the first time in two seasons,
the New York Giants lost the lead as the best passing
team of the NFL, according to statistics compiled
yesterday. The Pittsburgh Pirates accomplished this
feat Sunday, when they completed 18 passes to give
them a record of 29 out of 60 for a 48 percent average,
as against 17 out of 38 for 44 percent for the Giants.
The Chicago Bears still lead the other eight clubs of the
circuit for offensive honors with 808 yards gained and
74 points scored. They also have held the opposition to
12 points to share defensive honors with the Brooklyn
Dodgers who have allowed only 462 yards to be gained
against them in three games. Pittsburgh is the second
best ground gaining team with 799 yards in four games,
ten more than Green Bay totaled in three contests. The
Giants, who meet Brooklyn Sunday to break a third place tie in the Eastern division, are second to the Dodgers on defense.
BAYS HOLD LONG DRILL TO PREPARE FOR GAME
OCT 8 (Green Bay) - A young but spirited rivalry between professional football teams will be renewed at City stadium Sunday afternoon, when the Boston Redskins will meet the Green Bay Packers. The kickoff is set for 2 o'clock. Anticipated a heated reception from the
lethal Boston backfield - Pinckert, Musick, Rentner,
Battles and Riley Smith are the names - Coach E.L.
Lambeau sent the Packers through a three hour drill
this morning. He stressed defense against Boston
plays, offense and pass defense. As he looked over the
Green Bay squad, the coach came to the conclusion
that most of the Packers will be in top shape for the
Boston invasion - an important point, since Green Bay
must whip Boston, Detroit and Pittsburgh in a row to be
able to challenge the Chicago Bears for the Western
division lead Nov. 1. George Sauer and Milt Gantenbein,
two key men of the Packer lineup, are handicapped to a
considerable extent by chest injuries, and whether they
will see much action is doubtful. They are the only
casualties, however, as Buckets Goldenberg will return
to his post at fullback, and Herman Schneidman will be
able to fill in at blocking quarterback..OTHER ENDS O.
K.: Gantenbein's loss - if he is lost - will be felt keenly,
and may leave the Packers with a shortage of ends, provided any injuries crop out in the Boston game. Wayland Becker, Don Hutson and Bernard Scherer all are in good shape for Sunday's battle, but Gantenbein is Gantenbein, and he always is needed. If Sauer can't see much action, the Packers still should have plenty of good backs available, for the boys who work behind the line are showing speed and pep, and all are in good condition. For the first time this season the Green Bay team will use Johnny Blood, right halfback and signal caller, who didn't see action against the Cardinals last Sunday. Blood now is ready to take his turn in the backfield, and Lambeau has announced that he will use him...ARRIVES ON SATURDAY: The Boston squad will arrive via the North Western road at 2:20 Saturday afternoon, and will be quartered at the Beaumont hotel. The Packers and Redskins have met four times in their brief series, with the Bays winning twice, Boston taking one contest and another ending in a 7-7 deadlock. The Packers have outscored their opponents, 45 points to 27.
CADELL OF LIONS UNABLE TO PLAY
OCT 8 (Detroit) - The Detroit Lions lost the services of
Ernie Cadell, veteran halfback, today. Cadell, who
suffered a wrenched shoulder in the Chicago Cardinals
game here, was told by trainers he would be unable to
play when the Lions meet the Eagles at Philadelphia
Sunday or play at Brooklyn next Wednesday. It is
expected, however, that the stellar halfback will see
some action against the Green Bay Packers on Sun,
PRO GRID NOTES
OCT 8 (Green Bay) - The Chicago Bears nipped the
Pittsburgh Pirates winning streak by the score of 27 to
9. As usual the Bears took to the air with success and
their overhead drive sort of had the Pirates running
around in circles...New York spoiled the Boston opener
at home to the tune of 7 to 0. This was a bitter combat
as Red Flaherty, the Braves' pilot, formerly played with
the Giants. The victory was the New Yorker's first win of
the season...Brooklyn finally broke into the victory
column at the expense of the Philadelphia Eagles. The
score was 18 to 0. It was the Bell-men's first game of
the season under the lights and the shadows seem to
bother the Eagles...Green Bay spanked the Chicago
Cards for the second time this season in a 24 to 0
contest. The game was played at the State fair park in
Milwaukee and attracted some 12,000 spectators who
were treated to a lot of thrills...Red Franklin, one of the
ace backs of the Brooklyn Dodgers, suffered a broken
leg in the Boston game and probably won't see much
action again this season. This is a blow to Brooklyn as
Franklin was really hot in the early games..Cal Hubbard,
the American league umpire, bobbed up in a Pittsburgh
Pirate football uniform last Sunday and he got a big
hand from the crowd. The big lineman was a member of
the Green Bay squad for a half dozen seasons...Tony
Sarausky, who graduated from Jimmy Crowley's school
of football at Fordham, has made the grade with the
New York Giants. This is Sarausky's first season in
professional football but he has taken to it like a duck
does to water...Roy (Bullet) Baker is serving as an
assistant coach and trainer of the Boston Redskins.
Baker, who is a California product, has been in football
for years as he once was a halfback on Charlie Pyle's
New York Yankee outfit...Football scribes who have
seen the Packers play this fall are singing the praises
of Tony Paulekas, center and guard, who captained W.
and J. last season. Some of the experts say Paulekas
is another Rudy Comstock in the making...The Bears
and the Lions are the only undefeated elevens in the
circuit. Halas and Co. has three wins to its credit and it
looks as if it might be another "Bruin" year as the
Chicagoans are clicking on "all eleven" punch to spare..
The Eastern division is a merry scramble with Pittsburgh
at .750 and Philadelphia trailing the procession with one
victory out of four. This is still a free-for-all with all the
five clubs very much in the race...One of the surprises
of the western lap has been the collapse of the Chicago
Cardinals who have suffered three defeats in a row. Injuries have raised havoc with Coach Milan Creighton's aggregation who were preseason title favorites...Detroit will be working overtime during the coming week as the national champion Lions on Sunday play in Philadelphia, Wednesday night Coach Potsy Clark's tribe performs in Brooklyn while on Oct. 18, the Detroiters invade Green Bay...The Windy City postgraduate gridiron feud is resumed this weekend at Wrigley field where the Cards and Bears will have it out. The Bruins seem to have a commanding edge but the Cards can be counted on to put up a battle royal...Boston will be the first eastern division club to invade the west this season as the Redskins will exhibit their gridiron stuff this Sunday in Green Bay. In Riley Smith and Wayne Millner, Boston has two 1935 All-Americans...Football will replace baseball at the Polo grounds in New York this Sunday as the Dodger and Giant pro gridiron elevens will tangle in what promises to be a thrilling fray because both clubs will be keyed up to a high pitch...John (Shipwreck) Kelly, vice president of the Brooklyn Dodgers, has donned the money togs again. Several years back, Kelly was a sweet running back and he figures that he can still gain some ground in the "Cash and Carry" loop...The Cardinals missed the services of tackle Blazine and halfback Russell, both of whom are on the injured list and were not in uniform. Bill Smith returned to the fold Sunday for the first time in three weeks...Ray Nolting, Bear recruit from the University of Cincinnati, continues to outshine many veterans with his brilliant backfield play. He was one of the leaders of the attack on Pittsburgh, doing much of the ball carrying...Tuffy Leemans, George Washington university's great back of last year, romped 29 yards for a touchdown that gave the New York Giants their win over Boston. It put the Giants in the win column for the first time...Ralph Kercheval drove two placements squarely between the uprights to help Brooklyn get its first league win at the expense of Philadelphia. Mark Temple and Wilson each made a touchdown for the other Dodger points.
