GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(MILWAUKEE) - The Green Bay Packers dropped a football depth bomb on the Chicago Cardinals at State fair park here yesterday. The score was 24 to 0. Getting a slow start, when the Chicago team made a couple of early first downs, the powerful Bay squad soon asserted itself and relentlessly pounded its former jinx team into the grass of the stadium, scoring three
touchdowns, three extra points and a field goal while
hurling back every Cardinal scoring attempt. An 11,000
crowd witnessed the game. The Packers disdained the
use of passes in making their touchdowns. Two of them
were counted by Swede Johnston and Clarke Hinkle on
hammer-like lunges at the Chicago goal line, and the
third came on a brilliant 41-yard sweep down the east
sidelines by Joe Laws, as the Packers bowled over the
Cardinal tacklers like ten pins. Paul Engebretsen
swatted over a field goal from the 34-yard line in the 
third period, and the extra points were taken care of by
Ernie Smith, who kicked two, and Ade Schwammel,
who got another. The Packers were just as hot against
the Cardinals as they were cold against the Bears. 
Almost anything they tried succeeded, and they were
aided by two factors from the other side of the field -
the crippled condition of the Cards and the realization
by the same team, whether admitted or not, that they
were up against a superior football team. The Cards, in
short, were caught flatfooted about half the time.
TACKLING IS HARD
The Packers were not. They jarred the Cardinals ball
carriers with trip-hammer tackles, swept the opposition
from the paths of their own galloping backs with slam-
bang blocking, and generally served notice once again
that all will not be quiet on the Western front. Almost
anyone Coach E.L. Lambeau sent in to the game 
performed well, the play of the Packers as a unit being
such that the individuals couldn't help but fit into the
picture like jigsaw fragments dropping into place. There
was nothing as dangerous as a definite scoring threat
by either team during the scoreless first period. The
Packers first of all faced the task of battering back the
opening drive which the Cards launched after forcing
Hinkle to punt. The Packers had taken the kickoff, but
they didn't keep the ball long. Aided by Vaughn's 21 1/2
yard gain through the line, and a 21-yard assortment of
territory on a Vaughn to Pangle pass, the Cards moved
down into Packer territory and placed the ball on the 20-
yard line. It was first down, but the attack was messed
up by the hard-working Packers and three plays later
Kellogg attempted a field goal from the 30-yard line, the
ball carrying to the left of the posts. In three plays
Sauer and Hinkle gained less than six yards and Hinkle
booted to midfield. Here the Cards were smeared for six
yards in two attempts at the line and Vaughn kicked
back. The Packers attempted to move out, and aided
by a penalty that did get a first down, but the drive was
shortlived and Hinkle got off a powerful boot down to
Vaughn, the latter fumbling and recovering before
Wayland Becker pounced on him on the Cardinal 13-
yard line. This put the Cardinals back against their own
goal for the first time, and when line plays failed Vaughn
punted back to Paul Miller, who grabbed the ball and
lunged into Baker of the Cardinals so hard that the 
latter was hoisted from the field and wrapped up on the
bench. Miller got loose a couple of plays later, burning
down the sidelines for 15 yards and a first down near
the 50-yard stripe, but still the Bays couldn't get their
offense clicking, and Bruder cracked off an all-America
punt, the ball traveling out of bounds on the Cardinal 13-
yard line. Vaughn kicked back on the next play, and
Miller brought the ball into Cardinal territory as the first
period ended. A Herber to Gantenbein pass was good
for seven yards but not enough for a first down, and the
Packers attempted a siege gun field goal, Schwammel
booting from a point 51 yards from the goal line. It was
short, and the Cardinals went into action on their own
22-yard line. They soon were forced to punt, and Bob
Monnett set the stage for the first Packer touchdown by
reeling off a fancy return that carried the ball to the
Cardinal 37-yard line. There was no question about the
Packers' intentions at this stage of the game. Johnston
skid off left tackle for six yards and Herber sailed a
pass to Bruder, who was dumped on the 12-yard line
and injured Hank, with the crowd cheering his great 
play, was carried from the field in a daze - but save your
sympathy - he was back in there before the game 
ended. Monnett sprinted around end for 10 yards, 
setting the ball a yard and a half from the goal, and it
took Johnston just two cracks at the line to move it
across. Ernie Smith kicked the extra point to give the
Bays a 7 to 0 lead. The Cardinals took the kickoff and
made some threatening noises, penetrating to midfield
before Hinkle intercepted a pass which Sarboe intended
for Mikulak. This gave Green Bay the ball on its own 33
yard line, and the Packer marched right down to score.
A 24-yard pass gain on a toss from Herber to Milton
Gantenbein was instrumental, and Sauer followed it up
with a power drive through the line for 15 yards more,
bringing the ball to the Cardinal 27-yard line.
GAINS 13 YARDS
Hinkle shot off left tackle for 13 yards, and the Cards
drew two successive 5-yard penalties. This put the ball
four yards from the goal. Sauer got half the distance in 
a dash at the end, and Hinkle rifled over center for the
touchdown. After Schwammel kicked the extra point
the Packers were leading by 14 to 0. An interference
ruling on a forward pass gave the Cards the ball on the
Packer 41-yard line, but Hinkle intercepted another toss
by Sarboe, and three plays later Arnold Herber punted
over the goal line. The Cardinals pounded right back,
passes and line plays bringing the ball to the Packer
26-yard line. George Sauer picked off a Cardinal pass
and Laws slammed through for 17 yards as the half
ended. The Cardinals launched another ground gaining
expedition early in the third period, but they didn't get
far, and Herber's return punt went out of bounds on the
Cardinal 18-yard line. Vaughn kicked back and an
interference ruling on a Herber to Miller forward pass
gave the Packers the ball on the Cardinal 16. The Bays
couldn't get their passing clicking, and on fourth down
Tiny Engebretsen kicked a field goal from the 34 yard
stripe. The Cardinals took the kickoff and pushed ahead
until they got to midfield, but here the Green Bay
defense tightened and Vaughn punted out of bounds on
the Packer 9-yard line. The Bays took no chances and
Herber kicked right back. The Redmen were halted
again, punted, and the Packers kicked back. As the
period ended the Packers were in possession of the ball at midfield. Hinkle soon punted, and the Cardinals made desperate attempts to gain through the Packer line, all of them being messed up. Lawrence booted out of bounds on the Packer 43-yard line. Hinkle fumbled the attempted return punt but got off a nice kick anyway, and Clemens got the ball again for Green Bay by intercepting Sarboe's pass on the Cardinal 44-yard stripe. The Packers tried three thrusts at the line before Bruder punted out of bounds on the Cardinal 22.
PACKERS RUSH VAUGHN
Vaughn tried to pass, but the Packers broke through the Card line and rushed him to death, forcing him to punt, Monnett returning to the Card 44-yard line, and getting the ball in position for the last score of the afternoon. First Johnston banged into the line for three yards. Then Joe Laws started around left end, broke past the Cardinal secondary and wheeled down the lines to the goal for a touchdown. Ernie Smith kicked the extra point. The rest of the period was taken over the Cardinals in a wild attempt to score with passes, but few of them landed and the Packers turned back their foes at the goal line on the last play of the game. when Bruder picked off Vaughn's pass and carried it out for 30 yards or more.

BOSTON, FAVORITE TEAM IN EAST, HERE ON 
SUNDAY
OCT 6 (Green Bay) - The Boston Redskins, whom
Eastern football experts have picked to win the Eastern
division title of the NFL, will ride into Green Bay late this
week prepared to resume their winning ways at the
expense of the Green Bay Packers. The game will be
played at City stadium next Sunday afternoon. The
Redskins feature more all-America names than any
other pro football team, including Ernie Pinckert, U.S.C.
halfback; Henry Weisenbaugh, Pittsburgh back; Turk
Edwards, Washington State tackle; Cliff Battles, West
Virginia Wesleyan halfback; Ed Smith, N.Y.U. fullback;
Frank Bausch, Kansas center; Jim (Sweet) Musick, U.
S.C. fullback; Larry Siemering, San Francisco center;
Pug Rentner, Northwestern halfback; and two great
recruits from this year's College All Stars - Riley Smith
of Alabama and Wayne Milner of Notre Dame. This
talented and lively crew has been picked by Eastern
football authorities to finish above the New York Giants,
Brooklyn Dodgers, Pittsburgh Pirates and Philadelphia
Eagles in the Eastern division race. Coach Lambeau
looked his men over this morning's practice session and
decided the Packers will be in pretty good shape to turn
back the Boston invasion. George Sauer and Milton
Gantenbein received chest injuries, but are expected to
be ready for action, and Wayland Becker, although
shaken up during the Cardinal game, wherein he played
great football, also will be in the lineup...GOLDENBERG
IS BACK: Furthermore, Buckets Goldenberg, who has
been recuperating from a cracked shin bone, will be 
back in the game again, and the contest will mark the
first appearance of the season of Johnny Blood, right
halfback, in the Packer backfield. Herman Schneidman,
who saw part time service against the Cardinals at end,
will be ready to resume his regular position of blocking
quarterback. The Packers went over their mistakes of
the Cardinal game in practice today, following a blackboard drill last night at the Beaumont hotel. "Although the team looked good last Sunday," the coach explained, "we still have lots of work to get into championship form. I do not think the Packers have played championship football yet."...NOT MUCH CRITICISM: At that, the coach didn't have much criticism of his team's play against the Cardinals, when the Chicagoans were wiped off the field by a 24 to 0 score. For one thing, the game revealed that several of the new Packers definitely are ready to take their places in big time football. Spectators at the game were loud in their praises of Tony Paulekas, the Washington-Jefferson guard, who played a whirlwind game and led the Packer team in getting tackles. Paul Miller, the shifty little South Dakota State halfback, reeled off one pretty run and was on the spot when passes had to be caught. Wayland Becker played his best game since he joined the Packers, wearing himself out chasing back the Cardinal passers, and Russ Letlow, San
Francisco guard, was another newcomer who drove at top speed until he acquired an injury. Big Lou Gordon
was right in his prime again, being well up the list in getting tackles as he helped subdue his former mates for the second consecutive time. As several of the veteran Packers were playing the games of their lives, Sunday's pro football picture held a distinct green and gold hue.
FEATURED ON AIR
OCT 6 (Green Bay) - Coach E.L. Lambeau, Assistant Coach Red Smith, and various players of the Green Bay Packers will be interviewed over radio station WTAQ, Green Bay, at 6 o'clock Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings this week.
NEWS AND NOTES
CREIGHTON STILL THINKS HIS TEAM IN TITLE CLASS
OCT 5 (Green Bay) - The Milan Creighton who watched his Chicago Cardinals go down in a 24 to 0 defeat before the Green Bay Packers at State Fair park Sunday was temperamentally different from the Milan Creighton who protested against officials in Green Bay Sept. 13. This Milan Creighton was the hardest man to find in the Hotel Schroeder after the ball game. At the end of a 12th floor wing hall, not registered under his own name, he was almost prepared to suffer in silence, but earlier in the day he had promised to tell of Packer and Cardinal differences. As on the earlier occasions, he still contends that he has, on paper at least, a championship unit. The defeat Sunday he attributes to injuries. The game of professional, or amateur, football depends largely upon tackles. Creighton claims that he only had "one-legged tackles" in the game. Blazine, the ace of the forward wall, was not in uniform. Baker played fine ball until he took was injured. And the latest addition to the lot, Al Miller, formerly of the Chicago Bears, also has a bad knee...SAT ON BENCH: Tackle Miller's observations are interesting in that he was on the bench the day the Chicago Bears beat the Packers so badly at Green Bay. Says tackle Miller (and his viewpoint is generally shared): "The Packers played great offensive football...that was the principal thing they lacked against the Bears...I think much more of the Packers now." Both Packers and Cardinals agreed on one point: That the Cardinals were much better than they were at Detroit, and even in the first 10 to 7 beating in Green Bay. Coach Curly Lambeau of the Packers says this: "The Cardinals still are going to cut an important figure in the Western division race. They were much better against us than they were against the Lions, but we both have a long season ahead."...OFFICIALS ARE O.K.: Creighton was well satisfied with the officials that were practically hand-picked by him, and despite despondency he had words of praise for the Packers. Creighton's praises were distributed thusly: "Milt Gantenbein played an outstanding game at end...and so did Wayland Becker. In the line 'you' had much to offer, principally Ade Schwammel, Ernie Smith and Tiny Engebretsen Of the backs, in some departments, there is little choice. Swede Johnston always plays weel against us. Sauer and Hinkle play well against anyone, including us. Paul Miller looks good. Nobody blocks better than Hank Bruder." The Bruder "idea" is all important in the league. It was a Bruder block that hurt Bill Smith in the Sept. 13 game and, indirectly, it was a Bruder block that will keep Phil Sarboe under wraps for some time to come. There is some disagreement as to how Sarboe was hurt. Mikulak says it was this way: "I started after Bruder, and missed. It was Sarboe I hit."...ONE OF BEST: And it was Sarboe who had the ball. In a surprisingly good humor after the game, the former Washington State passing sensation thinks that the Packers are one of the best outfits in the league this year. But, like Creighton and the rest of the Cards, he looks for a win over Lambeau's team in Chicago Dec. 6. Hard as the game was, and the score doesn't indicate the fight, it lacked the viciousness of the Sept. 13 game at Green Bay. A much better brand of football was played by both teams, and the pro-Packer Milwaukee crowd saw a great exhibition. Al Nichelini, Cardinal back, claims that "they'll never see a harder fought game, no matter what the score is." Adding to the football picture were several colorful incidents that escaped most of the crowd. Jake Jameson, Green Bay cab driver, was answered by a punch in the face when he asked of the Cardinals between halves, "What's the matter? Can't you take it?" It was Bernie Hughes, 195-pound Chicago center, who rose from his position on the turf to swing rather than talk...OUT OF ACTION: Hughes pulled a stomach muscle in the first half, and probably will not see action against the Bears next week. His loss leaves Creighton with a center shortage. Gomer Jones, the Ohio State star of 1935 who was signed by the Cards when they were in Green Bay, was recalled by Cleveland before he had a chance to work out. It was thought that the Cleveland team was about a "fold up" but it didn't. One of the best "cracks" of the game came from Coach Lambeau himself with Mike Mikulak paying the role of stooge. Monnett passed to Joe Laws in the last quarter for just a slight gain. Laws was stopped by Mikulak in front of the Packer bench. The Green Bay coach did not like the play. "Mike," he shouted at Mikulak, "tell them not to use that pass. It's too dangerous." And the big Cardinal fullback imparted that information to Laws, who was calling signals. It might be termed coaching from the bench, but it was an unusual route for the news to travel. Pep talks have been delivered in many different manners. Most meticulous in his choice of words was Cardinal guard Cuppoletti, who in the third quarter, sought to inspire Kellogg with "Come on, Kelly, play deliberately." Little incidents that helped make the day interesting were: Bobby Cahn's opinion is that the Packers are decidedly improved, "but are a long way from the championship yet."...Packer players also feel that the win was more a result of their being better rather than the Cardinals being lax...NOT SO SCAREED: Lou Gordon, not so scarred nor so jubilant as after the first Packer win over Creighton's team says, "We are getting better...so are the Cardinals...but watch us from this point on." Some one threw an apple at Cahn in the third quarter, but the little referee picked it up, took a bite out of it, and put it in his pocket...Bill Smith, last year's all-America Cardinal end, was surprised at the outcome. It was his first game since the contest at Green Bay. Both he and Creighton think that Doug Russell would have turned the tide in Chicago's favor. Said Creighton of Russell, "He is our best running back...without him our attack is ineffective."...Leon (Stretch) Hageman, one time Michigan end and a member of the old Canton Bulldogs in 1921 and 1922, avers that Lambeau and George Halas have done more for professional football than any other men in the country.  Now living in Chicago, Hageman sees the Packers whenever they play in Milwaukee...Jameson was not the only Green Bay man who was hit. Leaving the west stands, Les North was punched in the eye by a Cardinal fan who objected to North's highly partisan Packer comment...Lambeau did not like the way the Packers started. As against the Bears, they appeared to lack spirit, but after the middle of the second quarter it was another story...CROWD WANTS BLOOD: The crowd wanted to see Johnny Blood, but Lambeau felt that another "threat" was not needed. Blood has been with the team only 10 days, and is not in the best of shape as yet. Nor is he completely familiar with the plays...Also a Milwaukee spectator favorite is Buckets Goldenberg, not yet completely recovered from his ankle injury. He was not in uniform...When the Packers tried their now celebrated flanker, the Cards crossed them up by yelling "Check" when Laws was calling signals. Thinking that it was one of his own men, Laws twice repeated, and the Packers suffered a five yard penalty for taking too much time...Many felt that Letlow played his best game for the Packers to date. But of the new men, the most widely acclaimed was Tony Paulekas. He almost tried out with one of the Chicago teams, but came to Green Bay because he heard that the Packers were trying a lot of new material. And then, as he puts it, "I ran into a whole squad of veterans."...Getting more than a little bit cynical after three beatings, the Cardinal attitude on the forthcoming Bear game is one of "We must win". Mikulak claims that if the team plays "together" it will be a Cardinal victory. Indicating that all is not cooperation in the Chicago lineup, Creighton also expressed a fear of a rift in the ranks, and is more apprehensive than Mikulak about next week's game...Getting his side taped up, Sarboe drops the comment, "The Bears...just a breather after the Packers."
MATTOS, ELDUAYAN SIGN WITH RAMS
OCT 5 (Cleveland) - The Cleveland Rams, American Professional Football league club, announced today the signing of Harry (The Horse) Mattos, former star halfback of St. Mary's college, Oakland, Calif., and Nebb Elduayan, former St. Mary's tackle. The Rams open the season against Syracuse here next Sunday.
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORTS
OCT 5 (Green Bay) - As if tossed by a catapult, the Green Bay Packers were hurled back into the thick of the NFL race at Milwaukee yesterday, and everyone of the 11,000 fans there knew it. The renovations on the State fair park stadium have increased the seating capacity, and the thousands upon thousands of spectators who packed the west side concrete stands made an impressive setting for the gridiron show. The Packers showed almost no trace of the listless playing which marred their performance against the Chicago Bears, except for a few brief minutes in the first period, when the Cards started their early drive toward the Green Bay goal. For just a few plays, it looked as though the Packers might need some outside inspiration. They got it, somewhere, and turned red hot for the duration of the game. The team showed complete confidence and mastery of the situation. The Cardinal jinx was routed, both teams knew it, and the Packers rubbed it in. They tackled with assurance, blocked with vicious vigor and weren't afraid to try anything. All the way through, they were looking at the future. Several times someone of the Packer bench said, "Wish we were playing the Bears today" or "This is a taste of what the Bears will get." Three tough teams stand between the Packers and their next game with the Bears - Boston, Detroit and Pittsburgh, in order. If Green Bay can accomplish the difficult and win these three games, it will sail into the return meeting with the Bears in a great spot to cause everlasting trouble along the Western front...Clarke Hinkle's touchdown against the Chicago Cardinals yesterday put him within striking distance of being the fourth player of the Green Bay Packers to score more than 100 points in National league competition. He now has scored 11 touchdowns, 7 extra point and 7 field goals for 94 points, and ranks behind only Verne Lewellen, Johnny Blood and Curly Lambeau. Joe Laws' touchdown was his fourth as a Packers, and placed him in a tie with Dick O'Donnell, each with 24 points. Ade Schwammel's extra point was his fourth, and gave him a total of 22 points, as he also has booted six field goals. Ernie Smith added two extra points to his total, giving him 19, the list including a pair of field goals. Tiny Engebretsen has now scored four points for the Packers, his field goal yesterday being added to an extra point previously attained...Tony Paulekas led the Packer tackles yesterday, smacking down 11 Cardinals as he played his whirlwind game. Next in line came Lou Gordon, Ernie Smith and George Svendsen, with seven each; Frank Butler, with six; Hank Bruder, Hinkle, Cal Clemens and Don Hutson, five each; Schwammel, Wayland Becker, Lon Evans, Russ Letlow, Johnston, Engebretsen and Champ Seibold, four apiece. Kellogg got the most tackles for the Cards, with nine, other leaders being Cuppoletti, with eight, and Mikulak and Pearson, seven apiece. Bill Smith got five.
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.
Cliff Battles - Rated as one of the very best ball toters in the National league...won all-America pro ratings the last two seasons...great favorite of Boston fans...set new all-time ground gaining record in 1932...a Phi Beta Kappa student at West Virginia Wesleyan...candidate for Rhodes scholarship...stands above six feet, weighs 188...his third season in the pro game.
Jim (Sweet) Musick - As hard hitting a line plunger as there is in the league...out of the game in 1934, but was back last season...fullback on star-studded U.S.C. teams through 1931...weighs 196, is devastating tackler...ruined hopes of Pittsburgh and Tulane in Rose Bowl classics...is deputy sheriff of Orange country, Santa Ana, Calif.
Ernest (Pug) Rentner - Northwestern university's great athletic star...almost unanimous all-America...great ball carrier of resource and elusiveness...gained 1,551 yards for the Wildcats in 1931...coached one year, joined the Redskins in 1934...lives in Joliet....weighs 195.
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.
Ed Smith - Pronounced a perfect candidate for pro football after his great performances with New York U...big, rugged, a great competitive spirit, fine forward passer...throws speedy, accurate passes and is a fine kicker...completed 11 of 17 tosses against Carnegie
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,
Oct. 18.
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

BOSTON TEAM ON WESTWARD JOURNEY
OCT 9 (Albany, NY) - The Boston Redskins, favorite team in the Eastern division of the NFL, rolled westward of Albany shortly after noon today, heading for the Midwest, where Sunday afternoon they will face the Packers of Green Bay, Wis., in a NFL game. The Boston squad included Coach Ray Flaherty, Assistant Coach Roy (Bullet) Baker, Business Manager Dennis J. Shea and the following players: Sam Busch, Charlie Malone, Flavio Tosi, Bob McChesney and Wayne Millnew, ends; James Berber, Glen Edwards, Gail O'Brien, Vic Carroll and Steve Sinko, tackles; Eddie Kahn, Lester Olsson, Jim Moran, Ernie Concannon and Jim Karcher, guards; Frank Bausch and Larry Siemering, centers; Riley Smith, quarterback; Ernie Pinckert, Ed Justice, Henry Weisenbaugh, Cliff Battles and Pug Rentner, halfbacks; Ed Britt, Jim Musick and Ed Smith, fullbacks...OVERNIGHT IN CHICAGO: The team left Boston at 8:30 this morning on the Boston and Albany road, changing to the Michigan Central line here. It will arrive at Chicago at 7:50 tonight (CST) and will remain there overnight. Tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock the Redskins will entrain at Chicago on the North Western line and will arrive at Green Bay at 2:20 that afternoon, completing the long road trip from Boston. They will leave Green Bay at 10:15 Monday morning for home, having a game with the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday. The Boston club has sent its trunks on ahead, and they will be in Green Bay well in advance of the players, enabling them to have all equipment on hand for a workout tomorrow afternoon. The squad is in excellent physical condition and all players are predicting a victory over the Packers.
PACKERS POINT FOR STRUGGLE
OCT 9 (Green Bay) - Another three hour practice session was on tap for the Green Bay Packers this morning, at the conclusion of which the squad appeared ready to face the Boston Redskins in their NFL game at City stadium Sunday afternoon. Only a light workout is scheduled for tomorrow morning. Last night the Green Bay team was called into session at the Beaumont hotel, where Packer and Boston plays were rehearsed carefully by Coach E.L. Lambeau and Assistant Coach Red Smith. The Packer coaches are leaving no efforts undone to get the players at a physical and mental peak for Sunday's important battle...INTERVIEWED ON AIR: George Sauer and Buckets Goldenberg went on the air last night, being interviewed over radio station WHBY on the Andrews sport flash, and tonight at 6 o'clock, two new Packers, Tony Paulekas and Russ Letlow, will be interviewed. Packer officials are warning the team's fans against taking Sunday's game too lightly, or regarding it as a breather before the game with the Detroit Lions the following Sunday. Boston carries to Green Bay which eastern authorities regard as a favorite to take the seaboard title, having a dozen backs and linemen with all-America labels, and an experienced crew of replacement capable of giving the Packers their best scrap of the season. Another letdown such as followed the first Cardinal game, the players have been reminded, would be costly in the extreme...VETERANS ARE HURT: Apparently the Packers will be in good physical condition for the struggle, except for Sauer and Milt Gantenbein, a pair of veterans with chest injuries. Lambeau isn't certain yet whether either will be able to play, but he will look over carefully at Saturday's workout and make his decision at that time. The spirit on the squad seems to be the best of the season. "We're after that championship," said one veteran guard yesterday, and his words were backed by others on the Bay team. A defeat at the hands of Boston, of course, would put the Packers squarely behind the eight-ball in their pursuit of Western division laurels.
PACKERS BATTLE REDSKINS TOMORROW
OCT 10 (Green Bay) - Two teams, seeking to battle
their way into first place into the separate divisions of 
the NFL, will cross each other's paths at City stadium
tomorrow afternoon, when the Green Bay Packers will
meet the Redskins of Boston. The kickoff is set for 2 o'
clock, and the victory - whichever team attains it - will
elevate the winner to a position as outstanding 
contender in one of the league's two divisions. The 
Boston squad, carrying an extensive collection of all-
America talent, was to arrive at mid-afternoon today,
and Coach Ray (Red) Flaherty planned a late workout 
to enable the Redskins to work off their "train legs".
With both teams on the battle scene, a wide open 
offensive contest, featured by general use of aerial
maneuvers, was forecast. Boston has a lashing ground
attack, led by Jim Musick and Cliff Battles, and a
brilliant forward passing setup which has the two
Smiths - Riley and Ed - doing most of the tossing. In
Riley Smith, the Green Bay crowd is going to see a
player who has been characterized as "the perfect 
quarterback". Certainly he was the most prominent man
to play that position in the 1935 collegiate ranks. Smith
passes, punts and is an outstanding field general, all of
which qualities are expected to be instrumental in
carrying the Redskins to the championship of the NFL's
Eastern division...THREE CAUSE WORRY: Coach E.L.
Lambeau is worried about the conditions of three of his
Packers - George Sauer, Milt Gantenbein and Tiny
Engebretsen. Sauer and Gantenbein have been
bothered by chest injuries received in last Sunday's 
game with the Chicago Cardinals, and Engebretsen has
a cold so severe that he was unable to attend the 
practice yesterday. It is likely that none of the three will
be in the starting lineup, but they are the only men who
will not be available for service. Lambeau expects that
the Packer offensive line will reach its peak against
Boston, and he hopes that that peak will be maintained
for the rest of the season. The coach has indicated on
several occasions that he does not believe the Bays 
have been playing championship football as yet, even in
defeating the Cardinals twice, and he will attempt to 
step up the attack to a new high level tomorrow...WIDE
OPEN PERIOD: Spectators particularly are advised not
to arrive late, as the first period is likely to be a wide
open affair, both teams aiming to score first and 
concentrate upon defense later. The chances are that
whoever gets the ball first will cut right loose with 
forward passes, and hope to click with a scoring toss.
The Packers took a light workout today, and then
relinquished the field to Boston for an afternoon drill. If
Sauer is unable to see action tomorrow the left halfback
post will be monopolized by Bobby Monnett and Paul
Miller, a speedy pair of ball carriers, while Gantenbein's
right end berth, providing he is unable to fill it, will go to
either Wayland Becker or Bernard Scherer. Guards who
may be called upon to fill Enbegretsen's position are
Tony Paulekas, Walt Kiesling, Lon Evans or Russ 
Letlow. The radio buildup for the game was continued
last night when Paulekas and Letlow were interviewed
on the Andrews sport flash over station WHBY. At 6 o'
lock tonight over the same station the Packer speakers
will be Lou Gordon and Miller.
CARDINALS TO BATTLE BEARS
OCT 10 (New York) - Local rivalries top the list of NFL
contests slated for decision tomorrow with the New 
York Giants, Eastern champions, opening their home
season against the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Chicago
Bears and the Cardinals tangling at Wrigley field in
another opening contest between the traditional rivals.
The Detroit Lions, league champions, play their second
circuit game and start a two game invasion of the East
by visiting Philadelphia to meet the Eagles. In the fourth
contest listed, the Boston Redskins make their initial
trip West to tackle the Packers...STOPPED BY
INJURIES: The Bears, undefeated in three games to 
date, will be seeking to maintain their victorious string over the Cardinals, who have been hampered so far by injuries. The Cards, however, are expected to make it tough for the Halas outfit. The Bears are present not only top the Western division but have compiled 74 points in three games and also gained 808 yards to top the league in ground gained. The interborough struggle in New York finds the Giants, defending sectional champions, in their first stand at home with a record of one victory in three starts on the road. The Dodgers have a similar record for three games at home. The victor will take undisputed possession of third place in the Eastern division with the possibility of going into second if the Redskins are unable to cope with the Packers in Green Bay.
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORTS
OCT 10 (Green Bay) - Few things are more futile than an attempt to pick a score between two football teams which haven't met, which come from widely separated parts of the country, and which have had no common opponents. You might just as well select Community Center high of Palo Alto, California and St. Benedict's of Lawrence, Massachusetts, and decide which is the better football team. Maybe that's a strong comparison, because after all both the Packers and the Boston Redskins are members of the NFL, which means they are rough, hardy units, either capable of springing an upset on the other. Since that game with the Bears it's been hard to attempt a Packer score. If the team is as red hot as it was at Milwaukee last Sunday, Boston is in for a cloudy afternoon. The Redskins, however, are aiming for a championship of their own, and they won't achieve it by dropping games to the Western clubs. It's a stab in the dark, but I like the Packers by 14 to 7. And here's one that'll draw the boos, but the Cardinals look ripe
for a victorious demonstration of what they really are, and I'll take them over the Bears by 10 to 0.
OFFENSIVE BATTLE LOOMS IN PACKER GAME
OCT 11 (Milwaukee Sentinel) - Back on their feet and ready to continue their tough battle to overhaul the Chicago Bears, the Green Bay Packers meet the East's outstanding pro eleven, the Boston Redskins, at Green Bay today. The tilt should be one of the outstanding games of the Packers' home season as the Redskins, under coach Ray Flaherty, have developed into one of the classiest offensive machines in the pro league. They have a galaxy of former all-Americans in their lineup; they have a flashy aerial game, as one should expect with the former New York Giants' star end at the helm; a bruising, powerful rushing attack and one of the best defensive lines in football. Riley Smith, Alabama's great quarterback of Rose Bowl fame, will do most of the signal calling and will have Cliff Battles, Pug Rentner and Ernie Pinckert as his chief ground gainers from the halfback post, and Jim Musick and E. Smith doing the heavy work from fullback. Clearing the way for the ball carrier will be either Weisenbaugh, former Pitt star, or Justice. The left side of the Redskins' front wall is second to none in the league with Wayne Millner, 1935 Notre Dame all-American end, Turk Edwards, the veteran tackle from Washington State, and King-Kong Kahn at guard. Against this lineup the Packers will be at full strength. The return of Johnny Blood, who is sure to get into harness activity today, will do much to bolster the aerial game. Right now the Bays have the best running attack in the league, an attack that has pounded through for 438 yards from scrimmage. With Blood in action we can expect to see the aerial maneuvers for which the Bays have long been famous come back into their own and we can expect to see Don Hutson, the biggest threat in the league last year, do some high class receiving on his own book. So far this season, Don has been used as a threat, opponents usually putting two men on him. As a result the ground attack has been functioning at top speed and the air game has been used sparingly. So it is reasonable to expect Boston might elect to play Hutson in orthodox style today in order to check the ground gains and then Don and Johnny should do some hell raising on their own hook with Herber doing the feeding. With an orthodox defense this pair should be unstoppable in the air and when the defense is set up to stop them Messrs. Monnett, Hinkle, Johnston, Sauer, Bruder and Miller will be heard from on the ground. It is a rather pretty defensive pickle to be in, but the Redskins, with their powerful rushing game and flashy pass attack, should also offer the Bays many anxious moments. There is little question about the offensive merits of both clubs. The one big problem from a Packer standpoint is defense. Against the Bears, the 6, 2, 2, 1 alignment didn't do so well, with the first two of the secondary drawing in too close to center, but against the Cards last week the defense showed lots of improvement, but still has room for plenty more. It looks like a merry offensive battle all the way with a good chance to get a line on the merit of the West against the East.
