(CHICAGO) - One of the greatest football teams that ever stepped upon an American field pounded from behind a 10-point disadvantage before 31,364 people at Wrigley field here Sunday afternoon, as the Green Bay Packers smashed their way to a sensational 21 to 10 victory over the redoubtable and previously undefeated Chicago Bears. It was a NFL thriller, and it boosted the Packers to a first place tie with the Bears. Green Bay made 13 first downs, while holding the Bears to eight, and gained 252 yards to 159 for the home team in scoring the decisive win. The victory was all the more brilliant because it was achieved after the Packers had spotted the Bears 10 points in the first period attained on a field goal by Jack Manders, Bill Hewitt's touchdown on a 55-yard cruise through the slop and mud of Wrigley field, and Manders' unerring extra point. Ten points for the Bears! Enough to discourage the liveliest and fanciest offensive in the National league, but the Packers, running and blocking savagely, passing with deadly precision at the most crucial moments, oufighting, outthinking and outmaneuvering George Halas' crack squadron, posted three all-America touchdowns and three extra point kicks to send the large Wisconsin delegation into a hysterical frenzy. Don Hutson scored the first touchdown, clamping his hands on a pass that whizzed from the right hand of Arnold Herber as the Packers scrimmaged under the shadow of the Chicago goal posts in the second period. Clarke Hinkle, who played as great a game as ever marked his long gridiron career, scored the second one, driving off tackle near the end of the half and splashing down the soggy east sidelines 59 yards to the goal line. As a clincher, George Henry Sauer came through with the score that made the game safe for the Packers, banging around the Bears' left end after Milt Gantebein's 38-yard run with a recovered fumble had placed the ball on the Chicago 2-yard stripe. Green Bay maintained its 100 percent record for extra points, Paul Engebretsen booting the first and Ernie Smith adding the other two. No account of the game would be half complete without mention of the outstanding game played by Milt Gantenbein, who did nearly 60 minutes in sensational style at right end. Gantenbein, in on almost every play, probably was as big a factor as anyone in the final decision.
The Chicago Bears made a gallant and determined stand against a Packer team that was keyed almost to the breaking point. Time and again after the Bays went into the lead they never lost, the Halasmen stormed back with power drives into the line and sure passes that clicked upon occasion, but the Packers, victory mad, simply would not be defeated. It was their game, and they piled up every late scoring thrust by the home team, smearing line plays, tossing end runners for losses, and knocking down the desperate Chicago aerial attempts. In addition to realizing, early in the game, that they were up against a much more dangerous Packer team than they had anticipated, the Bears erred in sadly underestimating the vicious Green Bay ground attack. Potent, lethal, savage drives through and around the Bear line, with Hinkle, Sauer, Joe Laws, Swede Johnston, Bob Monnett, Johnny Blood and Paul Miller taking advantage of a line crew which blocked like sledgehammers, kept the Chicago defense in a turmoil on almost every occasion the Packers had the ball. Behind the Green Bay line and rocking ahead of the ball toters was old reliable Henry Bruder, Hard Luck Hank no longer, who moved the would-be tacklers yards and yards as he cleared the path for the galloping Packer backs. In some ways the victory was as notable a one as ever achieved by Green Bay. For one thing, it followed as disheartening a first period as the team ever experienced - 15 minutes of play in which the invaders outfought and outplayed the Bears, but were handed a 10 to 0 disadvantage in the score for their pains. The Bears didn't connect with their first three points until the opening period was two thirds gone. They opened the game by kicking off to the Packers, Manders sailing a boot down to Hinkle on the 15-yard line, the Packer fullback driving back to the 36-yard stripe before Bernie Masterson tackled him. Blood was stopped by Michaels in a preliminary poke at left tackle, but the Packer blockers shook Monnett loose on a whirl around right end, Bob picking up six  yards before Masterson chased him out of bounds. Hinkle's drive into center was short of first down by a yard, and Hinkle punted, Feathers reeling off a 12-yard return before Wayland Becker slapped him down on the Bears' 32-yard stripe. Immediately that rock bound Packer defense, which was to harass and hamper the Bears all afternoon, made itself felt. Masterson attempted a run at right end, only to be cuffed down smartly by Blood's savage tackle. Ray Nolting was stopped cold at left tackle by Gantenbein and Lon Evans, two boys who played brilliantly all afternoon, and the Bears decided to punt.
Feathers kicked to Monnett, who got loose on an 18-yard return that didn't end until he was spilled by Fortmann on the Packer 43-yard line. Hewitt reached Monnett first by a trip-hammer block by Bruder eliminated the Chicago wingman. The Packers attempted a pass, Monnett sailing a tentative toss at Bruder that had possibilities, but went out of bounds. Hinkle then rolled around left end, with Johnny Blood setting Luke Johnsos on his ear, and was good for nine yards before Nolting hauled him down. Hinkle tried left end again, this time getting five yards for a first down on the Chicago 43-yard stripe, where he was tackled. Bruder's smoking block on Johnsos, who was getting the worst of things at this stage, helped the run. The Packer attack looked promising but it ran afoul of the battling Bears when Monnett attempted to pass, Hewitt and Thompson breaking through to set him back for a 14-yard loss. Monnett followed this with a forward pass that was intended for Becker, but which Feathers slapped down. A punt was in order and Blood kicked short, the boot going out of bounds on the Chicago 37-yard line. The Bears launched a counter-offensive that carried them well into scoring territory. First, however, Manders fumbled a lateral from Masterson and was spilled by Bruder as he recovered, the play losing 10 yards, and Feathers got three back with a slice at right guard, George Svendsen hitting him hard.
Nolting put the Bears in the danger zone by getting off for a 42-yard sprint that started through the left side of the Green Bay line. He followed Masterson and Manders, who aided with some great blocking and a touchdown was prevented only through some cagey defense work by Johnny Blood, who blocked Nolting's pass, as the latter lateraled to Johnsos, bumped Luke into a spot where Bruder could nail him. The touchdown was saved, but the Bears were on the Green Bay 28-yard line, and it was first down. George Sauer replaced Monnett for Green Bay, and Karr went in for Johnsos. The Bears finally lost the ball, disdaining to try a fourth down field goal in preference to a forward pass. Masterson tried a pass to Karr, but the receiver was covered by Blood and Bruder. Gantenbein and Svendsen ganged up on Nolting at left end, banging him to the turf for no gain. Gantenbein and Smith raced in fast on Nolting's attempted pass and the heave was wild, Masterson stretching out for it but being covered by Lon Evans. Masterson ran to the right and tried to pass through to Karr, but the attempt was smeared up by Sauer and Blood and the Packers took the ball on downs. Herber and Hutson replaced Sauer and Becker for Green Bay. The Packer offensive failed to click, Bruder bumping into his own interference at left tackle, and Herber throwing a couple of incomplete passes, so Hinkle punted out of bounds on the Chicago 49-yard line. This time the Bears functioned with an offensive campaign that wasn't checked until it brought a score. Smith and Hinkle held Nolting to a 2-yard gain at right guard, and Blood covered Karr on Masterson's forward pass, but another pass, Masterson to Hewitt over the center of the line, clicked like a million dollars, Hewitt getting into the open and stepping to the Packer 23-yard line to complete a gain of 24 yards for a first down. Hewitt had an idea that he wanted to lateral to Karr, but Blood wound his arms around the end's body and blocked this maneuver. The Bears capitalized on their opportunity. Manders was checked for a scant year at left tackle by Svendsen, Hinkle and Tiny Engebretsen. Feathers got two more at right end before Hinkle smacked him hard, driving him out of bounds, and Manders slammed into left tackle for four yards, Evans and Svendsen cracking him.
Masterson and Manders dropped back to the 24-yard line, and the former Minnesota fullback kicked a field goal by placement, giving the Bears a lead of 3 to 0. The Packers recoiled with a performance that carried them well into Chicago territory, but all their trouble brought them nothing but the spectacle of the Bears scoring a touchdown on a once-in-a-lifetime break. Stydahar kicked off to Hinkle, who took the ball to the Packer 23-yard line, where Manders and Michaels nailed him. Paul Miller, who with Lou Gordon and Bernie Scherer had entered the game after the Bears' field goal, fumbled and recovered, diving into left tackle for no gain. The Bears drew a 5-yard penalty, and the Packers then shook Miller through left tackle for nine yards and a first down on the Green Bay 37-yard line. Herber threw an incomplete pass. Herber was rushed on a pass play but got off a toss nevertheless, Kawal reaching for the ball but Hutson spearing it on the 50-yard line and breaking away to the Chicago 38-yard line to complete a gain of 25 yards and give the Packers a first down.
Hinkle failed to gain at right tackle, Stydahar getting him, and Herber's pass to Miller was incomplete. Hutson, Scherer and Miller streamed down the field after Herber's long fling, but Masterson knocked it down. Engebretsen went back to the 49-yard line for an attempt at a field goal with Herber holding. The pass from center was low, and Herber used the old coop, leaping to his feet and getting off a quick kick that Beattie Feathers thought was going over the goal line, but which didn't because Gordon flopped on it on the Bears' 2-yard line. Tony Paulekas replaced the hard-fighting Evans for Green Bay. The Bears, their backs to the wall, appeared to be in a tough spot, and bottled up, but on the next play they scored a touchdown. Feathers, standing in the soup behind the Chicago goal line, punted out the heavy ball to Miller, who received it near midfield and got off a shifty, fast-stepping return until he was tackled on the 35-yard line, the ball squirting out of his hands and rolling to Bill Hewitt, who picked it up and raced 60 yards down the west sidelines to the goal for a touchdown - the only one the Bears got that afternoon. Manders kicked the extra point with Masterson holding the ball, and the Bears led 10 to 0. Coach Halas chased in practically an entire new team. The Packers fought back from the crushing break like the champions they hope to be. They went into action on the Green Bay 46-yard line, where Bruder set the ball after Manders' kickoff, and on the first play Miller sped around right end for 16 yards and a first down on the Chicago 38-yard line as the first period ended. The Bears led 10 to 0, and Halas sent Brumbaugh, Nagurski and Trost into the game. George Sauer rode left end for eight yards before Ronzani and Molesworth tackled him, and then banged into right tackle for four more yards, Trost and Oech bringing him down. This gave the Packers a first down and they kept right on going. Herber passed over the left side of the line to Hutson, who was dumped by Joe Zeller after a gain of six yards, and Sauer hurled himself into right guard for three yards more. Swede Johnston cracked center with a bull-like rush that brought three yards and a first down on the Chicago 14-yard line. The Green Bay machine rolled relentlessly on to the goal. Johnston drove through left end like a bullet, Ronzani and Zeller running him out of bounds after a gain of eight yards. Nagurski broke through to spill Sauer for a 2-yard loss. Herber passed over the left side of the line to Hutson, but Ronzani knocked down the toss.
Hutson sprinted out to the left again, but this time cut sharply to the center, and Herber's bullet pass whizzed into his hands as he crossed the goal line, breezing past Ronzani and Molesworth for the touchdown. Herber held the ball as Engebretsen placekicked the extra point, and that cut the Bears' lead to 10-7. Hinkle replaced Johnston, who had played a fine offensive part in the last drive to the goal. Hinkle kicked off to Molesworth, who made a circus catch on the 10-yard line and returned to the 35, where Engebretsen stopped him. The Bears attempted to get a drive underway, starting with a lateral, Ronzani to Nagurski, which gained six yards. Rain started to fall as Ronzani plunged through left guard for six yards and a first down on the Chicago 47-yard line, where Svendsen and Gordon halted him. Then Nagurski plowed around right end for seven yards before Engebretsen and Gordon hauled him down. This began to look bad, but Brumbaugh attempted a forward pass and George Svendsen, playing the game of his life, intercepted the toss on the Packer 40-yard line and returned it 17 yards before Nagurski ran him out of bounds on the Chicago 43. Bruder replaced Clemens during a time out period. The tide of battle now swung the other way. Sauer ripped into right tackle for four yards and a forward pass, Herber to Sauer, gained 11 more, resulting in a first down for Green Bay on the Bears' 28-yard stripe. Stydahar and Sisk were rushed into the Chicago lineup.
The attack slowed up. Nagurski held Hinkle to a 3-yard gain at right tackle, Herber got but one on a spinner, and Herber, rushed by Kawal, threw a hurried pass to Sauer which was incomplete. From the 33-yard line, with Herber holding the ball, Engebretsen tried for a field goal which would have tied the score, but the kick went to the right of the posts and the Bears took the ball. Laws replaced Herber for Green Bay. The Packers quickly regained possession of the ball, after Gantenbein and Seibold broke through to mess up a play by Sisk, Gordon and Bruder tackled Nagurski after a 7-yard gain at right end, and Molesworth was smeared for a 5-yard loss by Laws, Gordon and Seibold on a fake punt. Molesworth punted to Sauer, who returned 10 yards to the Chicago 46-yard line, where Musso banged into him. Sauer slid past Hewitt at right guard for four yards, and Laws added three more through left end. Rain now was drenching the field. Sauer faked twice in the backfield and then cut to the right, gaining 12 yards for a first down on the Bears' 27-yard stripe. The Green Bay thrust fell short of another first down by a yard. Kawal stopped Hinkle after a 2-yard gain at left tackle; Laws was held to a 3-yard gain by Sisk; Sauer added four yards on a spinner, and the Bears took the ball on their own 18-yard line. Evans, Schwammel, Smith and Goldenberg entered the game for Green Bay. Nagurski rammed right tackle for five yards before Bruder got him, but Gantenbein coasted in to toss Sisk for a 4-yard loss. Hinkle and Hutson restricted Nagurski's thrust into right tackle to one yard, and Molesworth punted to Sauer, who was tripped by Zeller on the Green Bay 41-yard line. The next play was a sensation. Sauer faked to Hinkle, and Clarke banged through left tackle, bumping into Nagurski so hard that he bounced back two or three yards. As he bounced Hinkle pivoted to his right and got going again, breezing past Nagurski before the big fellow could raise a hand and breaking into the clear. Michaels and Sisk raced after him, but that's all they had a chance to do as the big Packer back drove down the east sidelines to complete a gain of 59 yards for a touchdown.
Monnett replaced Hinkle for Green Bay, and with Laws holding the the ball Ernie Smith placekicked the extra point, giving Green Bay a lead it never lost. The score was 14 to 10. Pollock replaced Nagurski for the Bears. Schwammel kicked off, Molesworth returned to the Bears' 30-yard line as the first half ended. Rain was still falling during the third period, which was scoreless but filled with desperate, thrilling football. The Packers took the offensive after Stydahar's kickoff and held it until they missed an attempt at field goal. Starting from the Packer 40-yard line, Hinkle cut into left tackle for four yards, and Sauer gained four more on a spinner. Laws stepped through left end for two yards and a first down on the Bears' 49-yard stripe. Hinkle lunged through right tackle, gaining seven yards before Masterson stopped him, and Laws got loose on a snappy dash around left end, being knocked down by Kawal, but getting up and continuing to the Bears' 24-yard line, completing an 18-yard gain and giving the Packers another first down.
In a terrific smash at right tackle Sauer gained three yards, but Hewitt messed up the interference at Nagurski and Masterson threw Laws for a 2-yard loss. Sauer's forward pass to Becker was incomplete, and Hinkle went back to the 33-yard line to attempt a field goal, with Laws holding the ball. The kick was low, and the Bears took the ball. The Bears were stopped dead, Molesworth being cracked for no gain at right end by Hinkle, and Nolting failed to gain at left end when Gantenbein and Svendsen hit him hard. Molesworth punted to Sauer, who returned four yards to the Green Bay 46-yard stripe. Hinkle was good for a yard at left tackle, and Laws raced around left end for eight yards, Nolting tackling him. Hinkle smacked left tackle for four yards and a first down on the Bears' 40-yard line, where Molesworth and Nolting stopped him. Three plays by Sauer, Hinkle and Sauer again brought little and Bruder punted out of bounds on the Chicago 21-yard line. Again the fighting Packers broke up the Bears' attack, Hinkle and Svendsen nailing Nolting, Svendsen and Evans hammering down Nagurski, and a Masterson to Nolting lateral, deflected, resulting in a 10-yard loss as Evans and Smith pounced on the receiver. Molesworth punted to Laws, who trotted easily toward Hewitt as the Bears end drove it, and then suddenly faked past him, leaving Hewitt in the mud as he returned 10 yards to the Bears' 43-yard line. A slam into tackle by Hinkle and two plays by Laws gained only four yards and Bruder kicked to Molesworth, who returned from his goal line to the Chicago 25, where Schwammel, Gantenbein and Svendsen all hit him at once. Feathers, Brumbaugh and Oech entered the game for the Bears. In three plays, despite determined opposition from the Green Bay line, Nolting and Nagurski made 11 yards and a first down on the Chicago 37. The ever-present Svendsen stopped Nolting cold at left end, the Packers drew a 5-yard penalty on Feathers' poke at guard, which would have been unsuccessful, and Nagurski soaked right tackle for six yards and a first down on the Bears' 48-yard marker, where Sauer got him. The big Nag added three more yards at left end, Sauer and Paulekas tackling him as the third period ended.
Rain was pouring down steadily as the Bears continued their attack on the left side of the Packer line that carried them into Packer territory early in the fourth period. After Frank Butler and Kiesling checked Feathers for no gain at right guard, Nagurski got off a walloping plunge through right tackle that gained 13 yards and a first down on the Green Bay 36-yard stripe, where Paulekas, Sauer and Gordon finally got the tackle. Nolting smacked the line for eight yards, Sauer and Paulekas tackling him. Ernie Smith replaced Seibold for Green Bay. Nagurski cracked right tackle for three yards and a first down on the Green Bay 25-yard line, where Hinkle and Gordon spilled him. Kiesling and Hutson rushed Brumbaugh on his attempted forward pass and threw him for an 8-yard loss. This was the turning point, as Nolting's forward pass to Karr was almost intercepted by Sauer, Nagurski was held to a 5-yard gain at right tackle by Hinkle, Bruder and Kiesling, and Nolting's forward pass to Feathers gained only two yards, Green Bay taking the ball on downs on its own 26-yard line. Sauer gained only a yard at right tackle, but Hewitt was offside on the next play, and Sauer, on a spinner, gained four yards for a first down on the Green Bay 37-yard stripe. The drive got no farther, as Blood's forward pass was incomplete, Karr and Oech stopping Johnny for a 3-yard gain at left tackle, and Hewitt spilled Sauer for a 3-yard loss at right end, Sauer falling on the play. Hinkle punted to Feathers, who made a short return to the Chicago 38-yard line, where Hutson and Paulekas got him. Nolting smoked through left guard for nine yards before Paulekas overtook him, and Nagurski was thrown for a 2-yard loss by Ernie Smith and Hinkle at right guard. The Bears decided to try an end-around play, but it was a Green Bay end who starred on the play. Karr pulled out and crossed the backfield to the left, fumbling the ball as Milt Gantenbein broke past the scrimmage line from the opposite wing. Gantenbein gave Karr a smart shove that pushed the latter clear of the ball, then Milt scooped up the pigskin and set sail for the Bears' goal, with Lou Gordon running beside him to provide a mountainous screen of protection. Gantenbein traveled 38 yards before he was run out of bounds only two yards from the goal line. The next play was beautifully executed, Sauer crouching behind the line and then cutting sharply around right end, skirting the sidelines and crossing the goal line standing up. Blood held the ball as Ernie Smith placekicked the extra point, and Green Bay was out in front, 21 to 10. Svendsen replaced Butler for the Packers. Butler had played a great game. Hinkle's powerful kickoff went over the goal line. The Bears went into action on their own 20-yard line, but got nowhere. Bruder and Svendsen stopped Feathers after he gained five yards at right tackle, after which Gantenbein and Gordon threw Beattie for a 4-yard loss. Bruder piled up Feathers for no gain on a forward pass from Brumbaugh and Feathers punted out of bounds near midfield. The Packers were caught clipping on the play, giving the Bears the ball, first down, on the Green Bay 49-yard stripe. Schwammel replaced Gordon for the Bays. The Bears opened up with laterals, the first, from Molesworth to Nolting, gained eight yards, but the second resulting in an 11-yard loss when Hutson tackled Brumbaugh before he could get off the toss.
Nolting's long forward pass to the right, intended for Karr, was knocked down by Bruder, and Svendsen covered Brumbaugh, making Molesworth's pass fall incomplete. Green Bay took the ball on downs on the Chicago 49-yard line. The Bears never got dangerous again, thanks to an alert Packer pass defense. Three plays by Sauer failed to bring Green Bay a first down, and Bruder, standing in the drenching rain, punted to Molesworth, whose shifty return was halted by Gantenbein and Paulekas on the Chicago 33-yard stripe. Zeller, Musso and Miller went into the game for the Bears. Monnett replaced Sauer, who was injured and has played a sensational game. Laws went in for the energetic Johnny Blood. Molesworth left fly a forward pass to Hewitt, who lateraled to Ronzani, the latter being tackled by Bruder on the Packer 41-yard line, completing a gain of 26 yards for a first down. Ronzani's forward pass over the left side of the line to Molesworth was incomplete, and another pass by Ronzani was intercepted by Hinkle, who speared the ball on the Green Bay 37-yard line and hauled his freight back 24 yards to the Bears' 39-yard stripe, where Ronzani ran him out of bounds. The Packers played canny ball in the steady rain, being content to hold the ball and let the time run out. Laws gained a yard at left tackle, the Bears drew a 5-yard penalty, and then received another penalty, giving the Packers a first down on the Chicago 28-yard line. Monnett was good for four yards on a spinner, Laws was stopped at left guard by Musso, and Monnett lost a couple of yards on a spinner. Monnett then failed to gain at right end as the game ended.

Sunday November 1st 1936 (at Chicago)
NOV 2 (Green Bay) - You think the Packers didn't pound the living stuffings out of those Bears at Chicago yesterday? You think that wasn't one of the greatest
displays of offensive and defensive football the National
league has ever seen? One big, far palm to George
Svendsen, the Packer center who played the greatest
game of his life - but the palms come easily after the
game. You can't forget the terrific plunging of George
Sauer and Clarke Hinkle, two men who yesterday
demonstrated again their right to rank with the real
greats of professional football. Canny work, the effective
way in which Lambeau maneuvered his substitutions.
The linemen played alternately, giving the men chances
to rest up, and providing the Packers with fresh men at
guards, tackle, ends and center so often that the whole
squad was able to drive at top speed for the entire
game. This worked out particularly well with the guards.
Although Lon Evans and Paul Engbretsen were playing
headsup, brilliant football, they were relieved at intervals
by Walt Kiesling, Tony Paulekas and Buckets
Goldenberg, giving the first two men chances to rest up
before getting in there and smacking 'em again. The
score does not indicate the decisive margin by which
the Packers outplayed the Bears. The Chicago team
clearly displayed the small reputation with which they
regarded the crushing Green Bay ground attack. They
constantly were chasing their secondary backward to
cover forward pass that weren't thrown, while the big,
bruising Packer ball carriers were taking advantage of
inspired line play to lunge through and around that
vaunted Chicago forward wall. It was a glorious victory -
one that the Packers richly deserved - and it will be
remembered as long as people discuss football...The
high scoring Packer machine chalked up 21 points
yesterday, and five individual Green Bay players added 
to their totals on the team's all-time scoring was
a big day for Clarke Hinkle, as his touchdown enabled
him to become the fourth Packer to pass the century
mark in scoring...the others were Verne Lewellen, John
Blood and Curly Lambeau...Hinkle's touchdown was his
12th for Green Bay, and it gave him an all-time total of
101 points, eight less than Lambeau...Don Hutson's
touchdown was his 11th for Green Bay, and moved him
into eighth place with 67 points...he is only five points
behind Hurdis McCrary, who holds seventh position...
George Sauer's touchdown was his sixth as a Packer,
and it landed him in a tie with Marty Norton for 19th
place, each having 36 points...Ernie Smith kicked two
extra points, his 19th and 20th, and now has 29 points
for his two-year total...Tiny Engebretsen's extra point
was No. 3, and boosted his all-time total to 12.
NOV 2 (Green Bay) - Among the 31,364 spectators who
saw the Packers wallop the Bears in Chicago was Joe
F. Carr, president of the NFL, who made the trip from
Columbus, Oh., to be a ringsider at the gridiron classic.
This was the second year running that President Carr
has been a "good luck" charm to Green Bay in the 
Windy City. He also was present last year when the
Bays copped the 17-14 thriller from the Halas-men in
the last couple of minutes of play. In the Wrigley field
offices after the game, President Carr commented as
follows: "It was one of the greatest exhibitions of football
that I have ever witnessed. The record breaking crowd
certainly got a run for its money. The Packers played
super football. Any team that can 'spot' the Bears 10
points in the first quarter and then win out must have
something. Curly Lambeau has coached a number of
great Packer elevens but this year's team as it played
against the Bears, seems to me, the best of all. I
want to extend my congratulations to Green Bay."
NOV 2 (Green Bay) - Rain, ordinarily frowned upon in the weather reports, has provided the background for some outstanding bits of drama. Jeanne Engels, and actress of more than passing note, scored her greatest triumph in the show, "Rain". In the drizzle Sunday afternoon with Wrigley field as a setting the Green Bay Packers staged a win that had all the other backed off the map for sustained interest. The Chicago Bears were props for the Packers in the 21 to 10 victory. George Halas dropped from the heights of being coach of an undefeated team to an offstage noise. And a tired Packer squad that didn't let down for one minute provided the stars. George Halas is no Potsy Clark. He feels defeat keenly and after the game was almost another person from the George Halas who watched his team overwhelm the Packers at Green Bay in September. But disappointment about the result does not keep the Bear coach from seeing the good points of the winning team. Hardly in a chummy frame of mind, he paced the floor of the Bear dressing room, was interviewed over the radio, and then said, "Today the Packers were the greatest football team we have ever played." He claims never to have been of the opinion that the Packers "have nothing but a passing attack." He lists George Sauer, Clarke Hinkle, Bob Monnett and Paul Miller as four of the greatest running backs in the business and admits their success against the Bears. "They were all great," he says in speaking of the individual players. Greatest acclaim to one man went to Milt Gantenbein, an end who stole the show from the Bears' Bill Hewitt. Pressing Gantenbein for top honors is Clarke Hinkle who proved his right to the all-America pro fullback title. Over the radio Halas said "the Packers outplayed, out-foxed and outsmarted the Bears." He offered no alibis and chalked the win up to a "great game". Halas avers that the Packers were better Sunday than the Detroit Lions were the week before. Players expressed the same sentiment. Joe Zeller, one time Packer, states that "It's the greatest Packer team I have ever played against...their passing attack makes that running attack...with the secondary on Hutson and Blood for pass defense, the line doesn't get much support when Packer backs are carrying the ball."...GRANGE LAUDS TEAM: Harold (Red) Grange, one of the greatest players of all time, was loud in his Packer praises. In the third quarter with the Green Bay team leading by 14 to 10 he pointed to Gantenbein as one of the best ends in the business, and George Henry Sauer as the game's best all-around back. Grange was not at Green Bay with the Bears when the Chicago team was victorious, so yesterday's view was his first of the Packers this year. More than a little surprised at Packer effectiveness in the mud, Grange believes that this year's team is one of the best that Coach Curly Lambeau has had. Paul Miller is one of his favorites. Chicago fans are divided in their allegiance. In the crowd of 31,364, the second largest in Chicago's pro game history, were many from Wisconsin who were there to see a Packer win. But there also was a large number of Chicagoans who favored the Green Bay aggregation. It was one of the home folks who shouted at Keith Molesworth as he left the game in the third quarter, "Take a grandstand, Molesworth." Molesworth nor none of the Bears were taking "grandstands" yesterday, although there were many who deserved some recognition for their efforts. Molesworth, feeling the loss and showing it in his manner and expression, did not hesitate to give the Packers credit. His is one of the most common expressions used by the players. He merely said, "It was their day."...KARR IS INJURED: Out of the muck and mire that is Wrigley field came other Packer praises. Bill Karr, after three weeks of inactivity due to an injured leg, says that he never has gone through a harder game, and expresses a hope that he won't have to be party to many more like it. There is much talk in Chicago about a possible third game between the Packers and the Bears. Fans as well as players now look to the Green Bay outfit as the only obstacle in the way of a Bear championship. Many expect that both teams will be victorious for the rest of the season, which would result in a tie for the Western division title. A playoff would be the result. Packer players, jubilant, feel slightly different. Says Milt Gantenbein, "Don't get the idea that this one game puts us in for the season. We have a lot more to go. Next week it's Boston." And so it was with the others. Big Walt Kiesling, himself a former Bear and one of the players who left the game completely exhausted, does not figure that the Bears were as tough as Detroit is going to be Nov. 29. That spirit that Potsy Clark has failed to see still is there, and it is goint o be one of the most important factors in the league race as the teams enter the home stretch. Almost missed by the crowd because he is a blocking back was Hank Bruder, who left a great impression with the "experts". Halas has lauded Hank before, and he is only one of many who realize his importance to the Packers both offensively and defensively. Whether it is blocking or tackling, Hank doesn't miss. It was a hard game and players had little personal difference from time to time, but officials and players were agreed that it was one of the cleanest contests of the season. In the loss there were no Bear cries of foul play or lax officiating. Bronko Nagurski and Clarke Hinkle, keen rivals for many years, shook hands before the game started and the play that followed was in accord with the gesture. The Bronk is still one of the hardest driving tackles in the business, but Hinkle was the better man yesterday. Bear freshmen were in the limelight throughout the contest, especially tackle Joe Stydahar and halfback Ray Nolting. Whatever glory there is in defeat must be shared by these two along with Nagurski, Bill Hewitt, Beattie Feathers and Jack Manders. Danny Fortmann, Bear guard, left the game in the second quarter with a cut over his right eye. He became one of the first casualties, although he later went back in, when he charged into his teammate, Nagurski, when both were bearing down on Hank Bruder. A similar collision between Hinkle and Wayland Becker of the Packers had less disastrous results. Incidental to the game were many little things: Lou Gordon was greeted by many hometown fans with boos when he entered the game. He left amid cheers...said Molesworth, "that guy has always given us a lot of trouble"...It was Gordon who almost out a Chicago photographer out of business in the first quarter...pounding down the field under a punt, the big Packer tackle slipped on the wet turf and slid into cameraman Paul Burgess...who retired to the stands to take "spread" shots of the field from that point. Between halves the Junior Bears, coached by Reds Pollock, played a scoreless tie with the St. Boniface grade school eleven...last week the Junior Cardinals defeated  the Junior Bears 6 to 0...the teams are sponsored by a Chicago newspaper...players are selected after tryouts...12 is the age limit. Football fans in Chicago are of the opinion that professional football has taken a real hold in the metropolis...many talked to at random prefer it to the college game...some because the best of the college players are the only ones who are successful in the post-graduate game...TAKES PACKERS LIGHTLY: Most of the fans took Packer strength lightly before the man, C.F. Jarrard of Berwny, Ill., a follower of football for many years, says that it is the Packers and George Halas who "made" the pro game...the same opinion was expressed in Milwaukee several weeks ago...that the large crowd turned out for the game despite unfavorable weather is ample proof of fan interest. Bobby Cahn had a hard day in the mud...besides skidding along after ball carriers on every play, he served as a towel for the hands of punters...Hinkle found him especially useful. Packer president Leland H, Joannes looks for victories from now on...but does not miss the importance of "continued" bogging down"...Roy Gotfredson, former Green Bay resident now living in Milwaukee, cites the Packer team as the best he has ever seen. Arnie Herber again was one of the marked men of the game...always rushed hard, he is one of the most feared players in football...Bill Karr sent him to the turf after a pass early in the second quarter...and almost put the Packer passer out of commission. Fortmann and Frank Butler had "words"...but nothing came of it...Most Packers players state that George Svendsen played his greatest game Sunday...but there weren't any members of the team who didn't come in for the plaudits of teammates...Headlinesman M.J. Meyer of Toledo threatened to punch one of the newspapermen on the sidelines when the latter was yelling offside...Meyer did not know just who was making the racket but announced that he and he alone was calling the offside plays...Halloween pranksters caused at least one party of Green Bay fans trouble...after leaving Chilton and driving into New Holstein on Highway 57 the party ran into a detour...someone had shifted the signs, and after a long roundabout ride the group wound up back in Chilton...Frank Dain, the little bald headed, bewhiskered man who dons a bearskin costume and dances up and down the sidelines at all the Bear home games, takes his job as mascot seriously...he announced before yesteday's game that he had been with the Bears for a season and a half, and that the Chicago team had not lost a game when he was on the sidelines...that was up to yesterday. Dain is a nightclub performer who has turned to football mascotting as a sideline...he does other animal sets (monkeys, donkeys and lions) as well as bears...the costumes he wears at the game is made of real bearskins...and he says it costs $ hooks up the front and the animal's chin is strapped to Dain's own chin so that by opening his mouth Dain can open the bear's mouth...he looks through the month...SON IS MASCOT: The Dains are a family divided...Frank, Jr., is the Cardinals' mascot...his costume is designed after the cardinal bird and his job of mimicking is even harder than that of his father...thus far Frank Je., hasn't been much help to the luckless Cardinals. Lou Gordon grins every time he hears of a Cardinal defeat...and the grin became wider than ever yesterday as he walked across the lobby of the Knickerbocker hotel...clad in his mud-caked uniform and carrying his shoes, the tackle was a victor in his hometown and the crowd in the lobby was cheering him...shouted Bellboy John Lewis: "You're with a good team, now, Gordon."
NOV 3 (New York) - The Green Bay Packers, co-leaders with the Chicago Bears in the western division, have increased their hold on the ground gaining honors
in the National Pro Football league. The Packers,
conquerors of the Bears Sunday, have rolled up 1,939
yards in seven league games, good for 151 points and
the leadership in the scoring column. The Bears are
runnersup in both departments, with 1,819 yards gained
and 129 points. Defensively the Detroit Lions are setting
the pace, having held their rivals to 1,135 yards in six
games. The New York Giants and Pittsburgh are
waging a close battle for forward passing honors. The
Pirates, however, have the edge, completing 65 out of
138 for an average of 47 percent, while the Giants have
connected on 42 out of 92 for a 45 percent average.
NOV 3 (Green Bay) - The Packers, giving a day of rest
after their strenuous program at Chicago Sunday, 
returned to practice today and Friday morning will leave
on their long Eastern jaunt, which is expected to decide
Green Bay's chances for a fourth NFL championship. The team was bruised and battered in scoring its sensational victory before more than 31,000 people at Wrigley field, but Coach E.L. Lambeau anticipates no major injuries to handicap its campaign through the eastern gridiron sector. The Packers play Boston next Sunday, and follow this contest with appearances at Brooklyn and New York before heading westward to battle the Lions at Detroit and the Cardinals at Chicago. They are tied with the Chicago Bears for first place in the Western division, and the Bears now are facing consecutive games with the New York Giants, Boston Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit and the Cardinals. One upset along the line, and the title chances of the Packers or Bears may go glimmering, and there are several teams on the remaining schedule of both capable of turning the trick.
NOV 3 (Green Bay) - Scraps from the special coach of the Green Bay Packers, jotted down as the victorious team rolled homeward from Chicago Sunday night: "That was the 24th game I've played against the Bears," recalled Johnny Blood, relaxing and puffing on his cigar. "Eighteen were with the Packers, three with the Duluth Eskimos, and one each with Pittsburgh, Pottsville and St. Louis." George Svendsen, who with Frank Butler hooked up in a great center team for the afternoon, came down the aisle, wearing a wide grin. Someone congratulated him. "Glad you liked it," he replied. "Hope the folks weren't disappointed. They felt badly about the kid brother's team getting licked Saturday." The k.b. is Earl (Bud) Svendsen, who plays center for the University of Minnesota team which was defeated by Northwestern. "Two centers in the family, George," someone reminded him. "Lots of competition, there." "There's more than that," returned Svendsen. "My youngest brother, Eddie, is a freshman center at Minnesota this season." George hopes that the Packers will get to play the College All Stars next season, and that he can play against Bud. The latter Svendsen weighs close to 200 pounds and is gaining fast. Ade Schwammel and Ernie Smith are enthusiastic about the manner in which the substitutions were made. "We felt fresh and ready to fight all the time," they said. "When you got the least bit tired, the coach sent someone in to give you a rest." This interchange of players probably was as great a favor as any in wearing down the resistance of the Bears, who looked none too well supplied with capable reserves.
NOV 3 (Green Bay) - Cal Hubbard's first flight of the season in his initial appearance with the New York Giants, and unstinted praise of the Green Bay Packers' great victory over the Chicago Bears provided lively reading in metropolitan daily newspapers yesterday. The following are excerpts from the various sportswriters' articles:
JIM GALLAGHER (CHICAGO EVENING AMERICAN): No longer can the 1936 Chicago Bears claim to be a better team than the 1934 Bears, the greatest team that ever played professional football. Outplayed, outfought and outsmarted by the Green Bay Packers at Wrigley field yesterday, the Bears now face a very tough assignment if they are to win the 1936 National league title. The Packers scored a well-earned 21-10 victory in the rain before a record crowd of 31,364 fans...The Packers played a great game and well deserved to win. Their blocking was precise, their tackling clean and hard, and they were quick to diagnose Bear plays. Gantenbein played a tremendous game, as did George Sauer and Clarke Hinkle in the backfield. And Lou Gordon, whose brilliant play for the Chicago Cardinals last season didn't earn him a new contract, performed superbly in a substitute role for the Packers. George Svendsen, former Minnesota center, and Tiny Engebretsen, former Northwestern and Bear lineman, also turned in fine jobs in the line.
CHICAGO AMERICAN (UNSIGNED: It brings a lump to the throat to see strong men weep. And no matter how trivial you might think the outcome of a football game, you would have felt bad had you watched the Chicago Bears drag wearily into their dressing room after their defeat by the Green Bay Packers at Wrigley field yesterday afternoon. Bill Hewitt, who still after three years with Michigan and five years with the Bears, plays each game like a high school freshman battling for his letter, was weeping unashamed as he walked into the room. Though he had fought like a tiger and played brilliantly all day, he blamed himself for poor tackling. Bill Karr, veteran end, was another whose chin was trembling. It wasn't solely his fault that he had fumbled on an end-around play to help the Packers get their last touchdown. Under peak condition because of a knee injury has held him idle in recent weeks, he had played to the point of complete exhaustion and sat with his muddy face bowed in his hands for half an hour after the tape had been torn from his weary legs...All hands were free with praise for the Packers. "They've made a swell comeback after the licking handed them in September," was the general consensus. Everyone agreed that Red Smith, one-time Notre Dame star, has done a great job as line coach with Green Bay. Observed one big-time college coach: "That line looks better than it has in four years." There was praise, too, for Don Hutson, who pulled something new to score the first Packer touchdown. Hutson, a fleet-footed speedster, always has been a straight, hard runner. With fourth down on the 10-yard line, he cut wide in the second quarter. As Gene Ronzani followed, he suddenly stopped, cut back, seized a Herber pass and dodged over the goal line standing up.
ARTHUR J. DALEY (NEW YORK TIMES): In a teeth-shaking, bone-crunching game that was played to the hilt for the full sixty minutes, the New York Giants turned back the Detroit Lions, champions of the National league, 14 to 7, at the Polo Grounds...Johnny Del Isola was led to the clubhouse with a shoulder that was dislocated in two places. Len Grant acquired a severed artery in his hand that required six stitches and Cal Hubbard, newest of all the Giants, received as a souvenir of his debut in the Mara uniform a magnificent black eye. Feeling was so intense between the two teams and play was so fierce for the entire fray that roughing penalties could have been called on nearly every rush. But the officials wore blinders and let the boys go at it. Once Ace Gutowsky punched Hubbard in the middle of his 225-pound frame, and the huge Giant tackle promised to settle accounts with him after the battle. So as the two teams streamed toward the clubhouse Gutowsky and Hubbard squared off. But before a punch was thrown by either of the combatants, George Christensen swung from his heels and landed squarely on the Hubbard eye. Then the fist fight was halted and all of the eager parties shunted off to separate dressing rooms.
IRV KUPCINET (CHICAGO DAILY TIMES: So today the strangest bedfellows in all professional football, Chicago's Bears and Green Bay's Packers, are sharing first place in the Western division of the NFL. The Bears' unblemished escutcheon went by the boards before a record gathering of 31,624 in Wrigley field, where the Packers ran - not passed, mind you - to a 21 to 10 victory. The victory, while surprising, was not totally unexpected. The Bays had proved in their last four contests that they're the hottest members of the pro league, adding the 21-10 Bear scalp to the 31-2 Boston, 20-18 Detroit and 42-10 Pittsburgh victories. A total of 114 points to the opponents' 40! The Packers forged into the lead only because the Bears' poor tackling, a deficiency noted throughout the game. This time, Clarke Hinkle, on a spinner, smashed off right tackle and apparently was halted by Bronko Nagurski - in a typical Nagurski block, which usually floors the ball carrier. It failed this time, however, as Hinkle bounced off the Bulging Bronk, danced away from three grasping Bears, and raced 59 yards to score. The Packers' running game reached unexpected heights, as their line outcharged the Bears' forwards. Too, it was directed with a finesse - relayed signals from Coach Curly Lambeau to Assistant Coach Red Smith to Arnie Herber. A double play combination for which the Bears and the official rule book hadn't devised any defense.
GEORGE STRICKLER (CHICAGO TRIBUNE): Defeat came charging through the mud yesterday to overwhelm the Chicago Bears, possessors of six consecutive victories, as an inspired, alert Green Bay Packers eleven forsook its vaunted aerial attack and ran its way up to a 21 to 10 victory. Overcoming a 10 to 0 lead piled up against them in the first period, the Packers fought their way back to victory and a tie for the lead in the NFL with a superb exhibition of fundamental football. It was the Packers' sixth triumph against one defeat, giving them a record identical with that of the Bears. A wildly enthusiastic crowd of 31,264, which was 159 more than the previous Chicago record for professional attendance, sat through intermittent showers, hopefully awaiting an outburst of the irresistible power that had brought the Bears six victories including a 30 to 3 conquest of these same Packers at Green Bay on Sept. 20. But after their first quarter splurge in which they scored on Jack Manders' placekick from the 23 yard line, and Bill Hewitt's 54 yard run with a fumbled punt for a touchdown, the Bears' offense was powerless against the fierce, accurate tackling of the Packers and their defense, hobbled by anticipation of an aerial attack and amateurish tackling, fell back steadily before Green Bay's hard driving backs.
HOWARD ROBERTS (CHICAGO DAILY NEWS): This is one for Mr. Ripley. And probably even he wouldn't believe it. It's not just that the Bears were beaten, but the manner of their downfall that baffles comprehension. For who would believe that any football team could spot those Bears ten points and then give 'em a sound thrashing? But that's what an aroused bunch of Packers from Green Bay did in the muck and ooze of Wrigley field yesterday to complete a weekend of astounding gridiron upsets. The final score was Green Bay 21, Bears 10, and a crowd of 31.264, the greatest throng ever to see a professional football game in Chicago, sat through a persistent drizzle of rain to set it accomplished and accord fitting tribute to this inspired team from the northland. For this aroused Packer team was truly a great one yesterday. Touted as a club which would pass, it not only did that but outcharged the Bears in the line and overpowered them with a great running attack of their own, led by George Sauer, who carried on brilliantly until he collapsed on the field from exhaustion. He was accorded noble support by his entire cast, with Clarke Hinkle and Milt Gantenbein featuring in co-starring roles. The latter, at right end, simply smothered everything the Bears shot in his direction.
NOV 3 (Milwaukee Sentinel) - The 1936 Green Bay Packers have an excellent chance of returning to the gridiron heights, a goal attained by the great Packer machines of 1929, 1930 and 1921. Sunday's victory over the Chicago Bears at Wrigley field permanently established the Bays as the power to be reckoned with in this year's race. In piling up their 21 to 10 conquest, the Packers looked to be the most powerful of all Packer teams. They had power in abundance and a touch of finesse that made the Bears defense look very bad at times. This year's Packer machine, as so often this season, showed it has the heart of a champion by coming from behind and winning. Only a champion can spot a club such as the 
Bears 10 points and then sweep to victory in as convincing a manner as did the Big Bays. Pregame dope had the Packers defense as the big question mark. Close followers of the team knew the offense would click but worry was expressed over the defense, a defense that fell to pieces against the Bears at Green Bay and caused a 30 to 3 rout of the Badger state favorites. The first Bear running play of the day proved the Bays had learned their lesson well in the debacle at Green Bay. On this play, Becker, left end, shot into the interference before it got fairly started, and Feathers, the carrier, was all alone as Becker piled his mates up. Johnny Blood came up and made the tackle on the scrimmage line. All day it was the old story over and over - the Bay flankmen charged in, they cracked up the interference before it could get steam up and the vaunted Bears' running game was like so much putty. Often the ends, Gantenbein in particularly, not only smeared up the interference, but nailed the runner, spilled would-be laterals and otherwise made general nuisances of themselves.
NOV 4 (Green Bay) - Preparing for a final swoop though the Eastern gridiron area, followed by a return to the Western sector for two final games, Coach E.L Lambeau today looked over a Green Bay Packer squad that was devoid of injuries. Although they played one of their toughest games of the season against the Bears at Chicago last Sunday, and by a demonstration of super-football come out victorious, the Packers acquired no major damages and will be a peak form for the last crucial swing through the East. Next Sunday Green Bay plays at Boston, a team which it defeated here 31 to 2, and then on successive weekends it meets two teams with which it has had no previous 1936 experience - the stubborn Dodgers of Brooklyn and the rapidly improving Giants of New York, leaders of the Eastern division...TWO FINAL CONTESTS: Once these three games are out of the way the Packers will return west, meeting the Detroit Lions and Chicago Cardinals in the two final contests of the 1936 regular schedule. Arrangements have been completed to provide the Packers with ideal, secluded training quarters during their stay in the east. They will be headquartered at the Blue Hill Country club, a semi-private golf course an hour's drive from downtown New York, but located at hilly Orangeburg, along the Hudson river. Here the Packers will train from Nov. 9 to Nov. 25 inclusive, returning there after each of their eastern games. The country club, where the New York Giants trained early this fall, is completely isolated, although it is only 30 miles from Times Square. Although the matter has no hookup with the national professional football situation, its neighboring institution is a state hospital for the insane...HAS LOCKER QUARTERS: The club room has locker quarters on the second floor with dormitory for 10 or 12 men, and a nearby farmhouse will sleep 25. The kitchen is an excellent one according to the Giants, who have used it for two years. is in a separate building. The cub boasts an excellent 18-hole golf course over rolling country and has plenty of room for a football field, upon which goal posts are already laid out. The field is across a brook from the clubhouse, and stretches across two fairways at the foot of a hill
upon which the clubhouse perches. The Packers will
leave Green Bay Friday morning on the Milwaukee road,
and will arrive at Boston at 10:40 Saturday morning. 
Dennis Shea, business manager of the Redskins, is
making arrangements for a practice field upon which the
Packers will work Saturday afternoon. They will remain
at the Parker House overnight...OFFICIALS ARE SET:
Officials for the game Sunday, as selected by Joe F.
Carr, National league president, are William Halloran,
Providence, referee; Tommie Hughitt, Buffalo, umpire; Dr. B.A. O'Hara, Waterbury, headlinesman; and Williams H. Shupert, Boston, field judge. On their return trip the west, the Packers will arrive at Detroit Thanksgiving morning, and will be parked in the stands when the Lions and Bears battle that afternoon, giving each Green Bay player a chance to scout his own opponent personally.
NOV 4 (Green Bay) - A humorous comment concerning alleged signaling from the bench in last Sunday's Packer-Bears game at Chicago appeared in the Chicago Daily News under the signature of Lloyd Lewis, and is reprinted for what it is worth in the Press-Gazette. Although some of the Packer fans might wonder when Hank Bruder started calling signals, the article is bound to appeal to their senses of humor. Says Lewis: "While the blanketed Bears on their bench watched the enemy players out on the field during the 21 to 10 defeat at the hands of the Green Bay Packers, a little nest of their assistant coaches spent most of the time peering under their palms at a large, fattish man in a brown hat, yellow sweater and dark overcoat who was giving imitations on the north end of the Packers' bench...STARTS WATCHING RED: Tarzan Taylor, Marquette's line coach, who was Manager George Halas' guest on the Bears' bench, started the group to watching the man in the brown hate. 'He's Red Smith, assistant coach up there,' he said decisively. At that moment Mr. Richard Smith, as he is more formally known, was looking out into the field where his men were making one of their marches. He was taking off Napoleon Bonaparte, anyone could tell that. Not Napoleon standing up, looking out on the sad and solemn sea from the cliffs of St. Helena, but the one of Napoleon sitting down, one hand on his bosom, a scowl upon his face, making up his mind to divorce Josephine. Mr. Red Smith wasn't able to get his hand in his vest, because he had a sweater on, but he laid it across his stomach and achieved what I thought was a pretty good imitation, everything considered...SURPRISE TO BEARS: Out on the field, muddy Mr. Bruder, Green Bay quarterback, was admiring Mr. Smith's mimicry, too, and with it in mind, ducked into a huddle and came out calling a play which was quite a surprise to the Bears. A special kind of reverse play it was, one that sucked in even so astute an end as Mr. William Hewitt of the Chicago team. As the scattered players picked themselves up and followed the ball down some nineteen yards, where the Packers' Mr. Miller had at last been downed, Mr. Red Smith shifted himself on the Green Bay bench and went into another impersonation. He took his right knee in both arms, rocked it tenderly and looked wistful. 'This one is harder,' mumbled Halas as he leaned forward squinting painfully. 'It's Lillian Gish, ain't it?' said Tarzan Taylor, his fists white with gripping. 'He's doing Lillian Gish from 'Intolerance' or something.'...PASSES TO HUTSON: Quarterback Bruder turned his eyes from Smith and called signals which prompted his halfback, Herber, to throw a pass to his end, Hutson. The ball was now very close to the Bears' goal, and the substitutes were howling for their fellows to hold that line. But the board of strategy, still as death, bent its eyes again on Red Smith to see what he would do next. That artist leaned forward, almost rose from the bench, placed his hand on each knee, lifted up his chin and smiled. It was quite a large smile, and he held it a long time, long enough for quarterback Bruder to admire it thoroughly before Green Bay went into the huddle again. 'I know,' said one of Halas' scouts, whispering to Taylor. 'I know, don't tell me.' 'Tell you, hell,' said Taylor. 'That's Shirley Temple - .' 'And a reverse around right end,' gritted Halas as he ran out onto the field roaring into the officials' ears a demand that they makes the Packers quite their illegal coaching from the bench. The shocked officials went over and laid down the law to Head Coach Lambeau, while Red Smith looked innocently and patiently into the distance. 'I get it,' said one of Halas' helpers. 'Now he's Bruno Hauptmann.'...FULL OF FORGIVENESS: In the latter part of the game, Mr. Smith stood up, took a lapel in each hand and looked very full of forgiveness. It must have been something in the nobility of that pose that fired the Packers, for they responded by sending three backs into the Chicago line, while the fourth back, Mr. Sauer, stole stealthily out to the right and ran in where Mr. Hewitt had lately been, and so traveled on to a touchdown - the enemy's third of the afternoon. While the screams of some 30,000 people came up, Mr. Taylor still stared across the field at the statuesque Mr. Smith. 'I know,' he concluded triumphantly, 'it's Lincoln.' 'It's the ball game,' sighed the tragic Mr. Halas, pointing at the clock."
NOV 4 (Chicago) - John L. (Paddy) Driscoll today returned to professional football ranks, this time as assistant coach of the hapless Chicago Cardinals. The former Northwestern university and Chicago Cardinal and Bear football star was signed last night by Charles Bidwell, owner of the Cardinals, to assist Milan Creighton. Driscoll will continue as athletic director and head football and basketball coach at St. Mel's high school while coaching the Cardinal backfield. He starred as a back at Northwestern in 1915 and 1916.
NOV 5 (Green Bay) - At 7 o'clock tomorrow morning a coach containing members of the Green Bay Packers and officials of the Football corporation will roll out of the Milwaukee Road station on a tour which will not end until the team has played four NFL games.
The Packers will open their eastern invasion by meeting
the Redskins at Boston next Sunday afternoon and
they will return to Green Bay after the game in Detroit
Nov. 29. In between these contests they are billed to
meet the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants. Upon
the success of this trip rests the Packers' chances of
snagging their first National league championship since
1931, when the Green Bay title era ended. They are in
ace physical condition, keyed to the peak and generally
could not be in better shape to make a powerful
showing in their final games...HEADS FOR EAST: The
squad will arrive in Chicago at 11:25 tomorrow morning,
and at 1:30 that afternoon will leave for the east on the
Michigan Central "Wolverine" which will take them to
Boston's South station at 10:45 Saturday morning. The
Packers will leave Boston at 10:15 Monday morning,
Nov. 9, arriving in New York at 4:10 that afternoon. They
will be taken directly to Blue Hills Country Club in
Orangeburgh, 30 miles north of Manhattan along the
Hudson, where they will establish training quarters until
after the game with the Giants Nov. 22. The Packer 
party will leave Orangeburg at 4:20 on the afternoon of
Wednesday, Nov. 25, and will reach Detroit at 7:20 the
following morning, Thanksgiving day. That afternoon the
players will watch the Detroit Lions play the Chicago
Bears, each Bay player scouting his own opponent.
After the Detroit game the team will return to Wisconsin,
leaving Detroit at 12:30 Monday morning, Nov. 30, and
reaching Green Bay at 12:35 that afternoon...WILL 
KNOW CHANCES: When they arrive, their chances in
the championship race will be pretty well known.
NOV 5 (Green Bay) - Ace Gutowsky, former Oklahoma
City university star now with the Detroit Lions and born
in Novotny, Russia, gained 137 yards Sunday for the
biggest individual gain of the season, and jumped to
second place in the race for ground gaining honors of
the NFL in the eighth week of play. He displaced Cliff
Battles, Boston Redskins, who led the circuit until two
weeks ago when Tuffy Leemans, New York Giants,
moved to first place. Gutowsky's 460 yards is 165 more
than he made all last season, when he finished tenth in
the league standings. Leemans now has 575 yards, 
which still is equal with the average he must maintain to
break the record of 1,004 set by Beattie Feathers,
Bears, in 1934, who has 389...DROPS TO SEVENTH:
Bronko Nagurski, Chicago Bears and Minnesota, 
gained fourth place with 321, displacing Swede Hanson,
Philadelphia ace dropped to seventh. The biggest jump
of the week was made by Clarke Hinkle, Green Bay
Packers, who went from 11th to fifth with 307 yards.
Jack Manders, Chicago Bears, leading scorer of the
National league two season ago, went back into a tie
for first place with Ralph Kercheval, Brooklyn Dodgers.
Each has 30 points. These stars also are waging a
close battle for field goal honors, with Manders going
back into a tie for first this week with five. Kercheval,
however, has kicked for an average of 163 yards to 134
for Manders, and his longest was 50 yards to 36 for the
Chicago ace...HUTSON IS THIRD: Riley Smith, all-
America quarterback with Alabama last year and now
with Boston, rose from a tie for fourth to second in
scoring with 25 points. Bill Hewitt, Bears; Don Hutson,
Green Bay, and Cliff Battles, Boston, are tied for fifth 
with 24 points each. Another close finish is expected 
for forward passing laurels. Ed Danowski, New York
Giants record-breaking passer last year, has cut the
advantage of Ed Matesic, southpaw tosser of Pittsburgh
to three percentage points. Matesic has thrown 97 and
completed 51 while Danowski has 34 completions in 69
tosses. Arnold Herber, Green Bay, leader two years 
ago, is third, and Phil Sarboe, formerly of the Chicago
Cardinals but recently purchased by Brooklyn, is fourth.
Don Hutson, Green Bay, leads the pass receivers with
16 catches for 263 yards.
NOV 5 (Green Bay) - Paul, 22-month old son of Richard
P. (Red) Smith, assistant coach of the Green Bay
Packers, died in a hospital here last night of a rare form
of cancerous disease. Funeral services for the child will
be held at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Kaukauna
Friday morning at 9 o'clock, with burial in the Holy
Cross cemetery. The Packer squad is leaving Friday morning for the final game of its annual eastern trip at Boston Sunday. Smith will join the team there on Sunday.
NOV 7 (Green Bay) - A powerful professional football team from the west, which Boston has been waiting weeks to see, was unloaded here this morning as the Packers of Green Bay, Wis., arrived for their National league battle with the Redskins tomorrow afternoon. The Green Bay squad completed the long trip from Wisconsin in good shape, and was taken to the Parker House, where the players immediately donned gridiron togs for a workout. The practice was conducted at Fenway park, with several hundred spectators on hand, including the usual topheavy quota of newspaper photographers...FANS ARE EXCITED: News of the Packer conquests in the west have aroused Boston's fandom to a new pitch, and a record crowd will be on hand Sunday when Green Bay attempts to repeat its early season 31-2 raking of the Redskins. As Boston is one of the league's toughest teams in its own park, this is expected to be a difficult assignment. The Packers didn't appear to have an injury - at least the full squad was in uniform and everyone looked fit. The westerners are much bigger than the average run of Boston fans expected, and there was considerable doubt as to whether the Redskin line packs enough punch to halt the Green Bay victory march. Boston fans are hoping that the Packers will be over-confident following their upset of the Chicago Bears last Sunday...LOOKS LIKE MILLION: Passing and punting, followed by a dummy scrimmage, was on the program today, the Packers looking like a million dollars in the practice. The squad displayed a world of pep and life, the players romping around like high school freshmen and whooping it up throughout the drill. The Packers obviously were delighted that the long train ride had ended, and were anxious to get into action against the Redskins. After tomorrow's game, which will start at 2 o'clock Eastern Standard Time (1:00 CST), the Packers will return to the Parker House for the night, leaving Monday morning for Orangeburgh, N.Y., to establish training quarters at the Blue Hills Country Club. They will remain there until the day before Thanksgiving, when they will head for Detroit in time to see the Lions play the Bears.
NOV 7 (New York) - Leaders in the Eastern and Western sectors of the NFL clash here tomorrow. The Chicago Bears, tied for the Western lead with the Green Bay Packers, meet the New York Giants in the Polo Grounds with defeat meaning loss of the lead for either team. This struggle is the only meeting of the season scheduled between these traditional rivals, for the Giants will not visit Chicago this fall. The Green Bay eleven will attempt to maintain its place at the top with the Bears in their battle with the Redskins in Boston. This looms as no easy task, for the Boston eleven is a much tougher team in the confines of Fenway park then it was in an earlier game at the Wisconsin field...PIRATES VS. LIONS: The Pittsburgh Pirates, chief threat to the Giants in the East, invade Detroit with the Lions, defending National champions, slated for certain elimination if they suffer defeat again. The fourth National league fracas of the day pits the Philadelphia Eagles against the Cardinals in Chicago. Main interest centers around the New York struggle, for the Bears-Giants meetings always have been hard fought. The Giants have not lost a game at home this season but the Bears have won every regularly scheduled clash with the New Yorkers at the Polo grounds since 1929. The last meeting of the two clubs resulted in a 3 to 0 win for the Giants in Chicago last fall...
NOV 6 (Green Bay) - "Win? We've got to win!" This was the spirit that carried the Green Bay Packers, their coach, trainer and other officials out of the Milwaukee Road station at 7 o'clock this morning, headed for the
East and their all-important invasion of foreign gridiron sectors. The entire squad was seated in the special
coach, the last arrivals being Johnny Blood and Hank Bruder, who made the train on the fly, but made it- fortunately for the team's chances for its big invasion. The players were in high spirits and lost no time in getting settled for the first lap of the trip, which was to end in Chicago late this morning. By this time this article is read, the Packers will be rolling eastward on the Michigan Central. Two and a half hours this afternoon was to be devoted to a skull session, in which
all the Packer plays were to be rehearsed...THINKING
OF BEARS: "The team is still thinking about that game
with the Bears in Chicago," Coach E.L. Lambeau
complained. "The boys haven't started to think seriously
enough about Sunday's game at Boston, and that is a
dangerous sign." Regardless of which game drew most
of their attention, there was no doubt as to the team's
morale. Every man was cheerful and confident that the
return trip would see Green Bay very close to another
national championship. They wouldn't talk about the
title chances, however. "Save that chatter," commented
one blocking quarterback, when asked about the
championship setup. "The only thing we're worrying now
about is Boston." Scarcely ten people were on hand to
witness the farewell, but it's a good bet that thousands
will be present early Monday afternoon, Nov. 30, if the
Packers are undefeated in their four games before that
date. Lambeau announced that the squad is lacking
entirely in injuries. "We are in our best shape of this or
any season," he stated. Milt Gantenbein drew a round
of comment from the players by appearing with enough
luggage for a round-the-world trip - two enormous
suitcases, well jammed...FIRST TO ARRIVE: The first
Packers on hand were Russ Letlow and Tony Paulekas,
closely followed by Swede Johnston. Persons other
than players who accompanied the party were Ed Crim,
Milwaukee Road passenger agent, Secretary George
W. Calhoun, Trainer Dave Woodward, Property Manager
Bud Jorgensen and Lambeau. There was a note of sadness in the party concerning the absence of Richard (Red) Smith, assistant coach whose only child died night before last. Smith is remaining in Wisconsin to attend the funeral, but will fly east in time to join the Packers before the game at Boston. Smith's great work with the Packer line this season is believed to be chiefly responsible for the development of that unit from just another group of good football players to one of the strongest forward walls in the National league. In addition Red is highly popular with the players, who expressed great sympathy for him in his present distress...GORDON LIKES WEST: As the Packers settled themselves, there were a number of comments concerning tonight's East-West game. Lou Gordon rather favored West's chances, and there was an immediate discussion, most of the Packers being close followers of the Green Bay high school teams. To the delight of the players, the Thomas Produce company sent in a crate of apples, several cartons of cigarettes and a box of cigars just before the conductor cried "All Aboard!" These gifts made a great hit with the Packers, who immediately started splitting up the spoils. The train-weary team will reach Boston at 10:45 tomorrow morning, and at 1:30 that afternoon will work out at Fenway park, home of the Boston Red Sox. They will be headquartered at the Parker House, but Monday will move to Orangeburgh, New York, for a training period that will last until the Dodgers and Giants have been met. Then comes the return trip, with final games at Detroit and Chicago against the Cardinals.
NOV 6 (Green Bay) - The New York Giants tightened their hold on the Eastern division lead by upsetting the Detroit Lions, last year's champions, at the Polo grounds before 26,000 fans.

The Cardinals too are returning to the friendly spaces of Wrigley field and with a chance to get some rest for their crippled squad promise to make the home stretch a tough one for their Western rivals.
NOV 7 (Milwaukee Sentinel) - The Green Bay Packers, tied for the western division lead with the Chicago Bears in the National Professional Football league, are odds on favorites to defeat the Boston Redskins when they meet here tomorrow at Fenway Park. The Packers have been going great guns since their defeat early in the season at the hands of the Bears and last week came out ahead of the Chicago club, 21 to 10, to gain a tie for the lead. Their comeback after the Bear defeat in the second game of the season indicates the Packers are one of the strongest teams in the league and their fine offensive record doesn't figure to be checked materially by the Redskins. It was their smashing win over Boston at Green Bay that started the Packer comeback. Coach Red Flaherty of the Redskins has drilled his men all week on a defensive intended to stop the sensational Herber to Hutson or Blood pass combinations and at the same time hold in check the powerful ground attack of the westerners. As yet, no club has been able to stem the Packer thrusts and local fans are doubtful that the Redskins can turn the trick. The local club has been coming along in fine style of late and figures to give the Bays more of a fight of it than was the case in the game at Green Bay. With a chance of the Eastern half title still in their grasp, the Redskins have worked hard in preparation for the game and figure that if they can turn back the Bays they'll stand an excellent chance of nosing out the New York Giants for the title in this half of the loop. The Packers arrived here today and were sent through a brisk workout to get their travel legs out of the way. Coach Curly Lambeau is afraid of an upset, expecting a letdown on the part of his players after their sensational win over the Bears. He reports his club in tip-top shape for the game.
