NEWS AND NOTES
​'40 ALL-STARS BEST OF ALL, SAY PACKERS
AUG 29 (Chicago) - Don Hutson said he thought it was nice. Cecil Isbell said he hoped the 84,567 enjoyed it. And George Svendsen, the big center with the balloon sized knee, said that he was going to be in the All-Star game next year, game leg or no leg at all. Beyond that there was little in the conversation or activity in the Green Bay Packers' dressing room last night to indicate to the casual observer that the world champions had just scored a 45 to 28 triumph over the finest College All-Star squad ever assembled. Only one man bore any physical evidence of the spectacular
contest in which the professional representative, for the
first time in the All-Star series, approached its normal
game. Frank Balazs, of Chicago, a former Iowa fullback,
suffered a dislocated shoulder in the fourth quarter. He
 was taken to St. Luke's hospital. The freshness of the
players attested to the splendid condition into which
Coaches Curly Lambeau and Red Smith worked the
Packers despite frequent interference from the weather.
The Packers had only one drill of any consequence in
the four days preceding the game. "The All-Stars'
running attack surprised us," Lambeau said. "In every
other respect they were what we expected. They were
fast, rugged, well organized and much farther advanced
than the other All-Star teams I have ever seen in this
gamed. They had us jumping with their defense for a
time. They used three different defenses against us and
if we had not the advantage of superb generalship, we
would have been in for a very miserable evening. Our
quarterbacks, Isbell, Laws and Arnie Herber, quickly
adjusted themselves to these surprise moves and called
the kind of a game fans have a right to expect from pro
players." Lambeau has special praise for Hutson and
Carl Mulleneaux, his star ends, and for centers Bud
Svendsen and Charles Brock. Eddie Jankowski, the
former Wisconsin fullback, who led the Packer ground
gainers, came in for commendation and Larry Buhler,
fullback, was singled out by Lambeau for his blocking.
"We expected the All-Stars to score and we expected
to score," Lambeau added. "But I did not dare hope that
we would click so well in such an important game so
early in the season." Buckets Goldenberg, the stocky
guard who met Kenny Washington head on on the one
yard line, but was bowled over for a touchdown, termed
the husky UCLA star the finest man on the college
squad. Mulleneaux said he did not believe a better back
would ever play on the college side in the All-Star game
 Hutson, who produced two of his copyrighted features
when he caught Isbell's tremendous pass for the first
touchdown and took the ball away from Nile Kinnick and
Banks McFadden for another, said it was a matter of
teamwork, and added: "Our pass plays worked just like
they do in practice."
CROWD OF 84,567 PAID $175,427 TO SEE
SPECTACLE AND AID CHARITY
AUG 29 (Chicago) - A record breaking crowd of 84,567,
assembled from all part of the country, saw the Green
Bay Packers in their great triumph over the college
stars Thursday night at Soldier field. The receipts
amounted to $175,427. After expenses, which include a
juicy cut for the pros, the money will be distributed to
Chicago charities..The Packers had the ball on 76 plays
and the Stars on 69, evidence of the parity of strength
between the clubs despite the score. The college boys
controlled the ball better in the first half, although they
trailed 28-21, at the intermission; the pros better in the
second half...Green Bay got more touchdowns in the
first half than the pros had scores in six previous
games. Until Thursday night, the pros had only three
touchdowns to their credit. The Packers in the first half
got four. In total points, the Packers with 45 also
exceeded in this one sally the combined scoring efforts
of all the other pro teams. Until Thursday night, the pros
in six games had scored only 37 points..You can gather
what a hard charging line the Packers face by the
number of times Cecil Isbell was thrown for losses on
passes he couldn't get away. Isbell was nailed four
times behind the line for a total loss of 57 yards...As a
spectacle, the game has few equals in all sports. Only
one criticism was voiced as the crowd filed out. The
entertainment between halves, while excellent, "last too
long." It was after 12 o'clock, Chicago time, when the
timer's gun ended the game...Only Eddie Jankowski did
anything really worthwhile while rushing the ball. The
rest of the boys were stopped almost cold. The Jank,
working off a spread formation in the third quarter, led
all Green Bay's ball carriers with 25 yards on five plays.
The explosive Ambrose Schindler, who was drawn by
the Packers in the draft but who preferred coaching to
pro ball and took a job at Glendale (Calif.) junior college,
was the chief ground gainer for the all-stars with 46
yards on 10 plays. The longest run of the evening from
scrimmage, a 32 yard gallop by Uram on a spinner, was
recalled and the Packers penalized for holding...Eddie
Anderson played the game just as he said he would.
He promised to stress offense and the all-stars certainly
came out throwing caution to the wins. He promised to
give the Packers a battle and he did. He indicated that
he rested his hopes on about half of the 69 boys on the
squad and just about half saw action. All told, 36 boys
got into the game...Bobby Cahn, the watch charm pro
league official, worked an excellent game as referee. He
never lost command. He never lost command...The ubiquitous Charlie Brock was again among those present. He accounted for Green Bay's only interception of the night...Kinnick, one of the great boys on the field, proved that drop kicking is not entirely lost art by accounting for three of the four extra points for the all-stars with drop kicks...The game proved one of the old axioms of football again - a good passing team is also a good team against passes. The Packers had the all-stars' passes convered tight most of the night. They had men on top of the receivers even on those which were completed...Anderson showed in his "regulars" the first time Green Bay got the ball. As a group, with the game only a minute old, he sent in Kolman and Artoe at tackles; Ivy at end, Brewer at guard, Emmons at blocking back and Van Every at halfback...Hutson caught five of Green Bay's 11 completed passes, Uram and Mulleneaux each two and Gantenbein and Laws each one. Kavanaugh and McFadden each caught two of the all-stars' seven passes, and Evans, Schindler and Washington each one...The busiest men in the stadium were not the scorekeepers, although they were certainly busy enough. The busiest men were rival pro league coaches wearing out several pencils apiece trying to diagram Green Bay's pass plays...The Packers will return to Green Bay Friday and then come to Milwaukee Saturday in time to work out at State Fair park for the exhibition game with the Washington Redskins on Labor Day.
HUTSON, ISBELL - WHAT A PAIR! SAY ALL-STARS
AUG 30 (Chicago) - Just a case of too much Cecil Isbell
and Don Hutson. This was the consensus of the
College All-Star players as they trooped back to their
dressing quarters after their 45 to 28 whipping by the
Green Bay Packers on Soldiers' field last night. The
collegians were far from a disconsolate group as they
took off their All-Star costumes for the last time. Words
of praise were shouted across the locker room as the
players bid each other farewell to scatter to their homes
throughout the country or to NFL training camps...
SHAW PRAISES HUTSON: Buck Shaw of Santa Clara,
first of the All-Star coaches to reach the dressing room
after the game, summed up what most of the players
must have been thinking when he said: "That Hutson 
sure was bad news, wasn't he?" Frank Ivy, the giants
end from Oklahoma, allowed that Hutson was just that.
"If we could have stopped their passes, we would have
licked 'em," he declared. Head Coach Eddie Anderson
of Iowa had only words of praise for all of his men.
"Sure, we wanted to win this one, but they had too 
many guns for us," he admitted. "The boys did all right
though, and I'm proud of every one of them. We tried to
meet the Packers at their own game and even though
we failed, we gave the folks a show."...MR. TURNER
OBJECTS: Clyde (Bulldog) Turner, the burly center from
Hardin-Simmons university, who will get another chance
at the Packers when he joins the Chicago Bears, was
doubly disappointed. The Texan grumbled good-
naturedly, "Every time I made a tackle out there, that
loud speaker would bellow out 'Emmons stopped him.' "
Emmons grinned from his locker and avowed, "Aw, 
Bulldog, I was backing you up all night." Except for a
head cut sustained by Banks McFadden in the closing
moments of the game, the All-Star players came out of
the game without physical mishap. Capt. Harry Smith
of Southern California, who was led off the field in the
closing minutes, was suffering from fatigue and quickly
recovered in the dressing room.
ALL-STAR GAME OF 1940 IS SPECTACULAR
SCORING SHOW
AUG 30 (Chicago) - Nature with no small amount of
material aid from the Chicago Tribune Charities provided
the setting Thursday night for just about the greatest
demonstration of offensive football tactics that ever has
been presented anywhere. We refer, of course, to the
seventh annual All-Star football game in which the 
Green Bay Packers outguesses, and outpassed the
College All-Americans by the impressive margin of 45 
to 28. Seven touchdowns were made by the Packers in 
the first time that a winning professional team has
crossed the All-Star goal line - previous points were
gained by safeties and field goals - Detroit made a
touchdown in its 7 to 7 deadlock in 1936. The first Isbell
to Hutson touchdown pass set a new record in that
department, too, beating that of 47 yards by Sammy
Baugh to Gaynell Tinsley to beat the Packers in 1938.
Other broken records may be found when the smoke
clears away...USES AERIAL ATTACK: Eddie Anderson
of Iowa, who headed the All-Stars' coaching staff, 
followed the general attack plan that Coach Lambeau
has followed to bring the Packers repeated National
league championships. He used Kenny Washington,
Nile Kinnick, Banks McFadden, Ken Kavanaugh, Bill
Fisk, Dick Evans and others in a damaging aerial foray.
The hard running of Ambrose Schindler, Washington 
and Bob Kellogg sparkled in the attack. But brilliant as
ther All-Stars were in their efforts to quaff the sweet
nectar of victory, they were outshone by the Packers'
Don Hutson - who was the major planet of in the field of
stars - Cecil Isbell, Carl Mulleneaux, Joe Laws, and
other Green Bay luminaries. The press box habitues for
the most part were intent on the individual performances
of the Collegians, brought together in a dream team to
meet the professional champions. As the game went on
they found that the All-Stars were no match for the
Packers, who instead of folding up in the fag end of the
contest, as "old" men who are slow to condition are
supposed to, improved with the minutes...SCORES
THREE TIMES: Hutson made three touchdowns. He
made them in the manner that he has patented, and
while Jimmy Conzelman, new coach of the Chicago
Cardinals, pointed out how easy it is to chart the 
Hutson pass plays, he admitted that "it becomes more
amazing because it is so simple." Conzelman, like other coaches, learned that the solution of the Hutson touchdown machine is not so much in the play as it is in the man. His first touchdown last night came on a long pass from Isbell. He paced alongside the Stars' Nile Kinnick for about 15 yards in midfield, and then turned on the steam within the 40 to take the ball on the 35, shifted into high and ran away from the noted Mr. Kinnick. On another occasion Hutson made the most spectacular catch of the entire game (and few if any will see an equal catch this season unless they are around again where Don is spearing them) when he stole the ball from McFadden and Kinnick, who were on either side of him, in the end zone. Hutson was so well covered on the play that even the boys in the press coop weren't certain that he had it until, from a sitting position on the ground, Don tossed the ball to referee Bobby Cahn to signal that the score had been made. That, too, was an Isbell pass. In all, Hutson made 19 points...BOOTS EXTRA POINTS: When Hutson kicked the final extra point of the game, it was announced over the loudspeaker that he never had missed one in a game. One of the scribes summed up the sentiment of the entire assemblage when he retorted: "That guy never misses anything." This didn't start out to only a eulogy to the inimitable Don. On the other hand, it would be a sin to write anything about the game without singing his praises. There just isn't enough ink to hand him the bouquet he justly deserves. However, with what is left, we will pen a few notes on some other highlights. Cecil Isbell drew a big hand from the All-Star fans. He returned to the scene of his 1938 triumphs to recapture the fancy of the great crowd which last night numbered 84,567, and official record, and just seven fans more than the previous record crowd of 84,560, set at the Packer game against the Stars in 1937. Where some of those fans sat is another story and not a very good one. When practically 85,000 persons are placed in one stadium, a very small percentage is anywhere near midfield. And a goodly number was far down on the northwest side of the field, over in the general direction of Evanston...HE'S A GOOD BACK: Schindler, the former Southern California quarterback who played a whale of a game at fullback for the Stars, drew considerable attention from Green Bay fans. Ambrose is a rugged runner, a good blocker, and a fine defensive back. It is generally known that he was one of the Packer draftees, but unless some other announcement has come forth since this was written, nobody by Mister Schindler and Coach Lambeau knows what his intentions are regarding postgraduate football. Lambeau was in negotiation with Ambrose on the coast last January, but the Trojan warhorse indicated at that time that he might lend a favorable ear to the jingle of pro football coins. Up to now, nothing has come of it. Another Packer draftee - but one who has already signed - in an outstanding role last night was Dick Evans, the end from Iowa who football writers said hit his stride after the Wisconsin game of last year. Eddie Anderson, who knew his talents from his college play, used him considerably last night at left end and when he left the game for the last time in the final quarter, the crowd recognized his efforts with applause...HAILS FROM CHICAGO: Dick is a big Chicago boy. He weighs 195 pounds, stands 6 feet 3 and is 23 years old. Chicagoans remember him as an outstanding athlete at DePaul academy before his varsity career at Iowa. He also played three years of basketball there. During the summer he conditioned himself as a laborer with a gas company crew in Chicago, and he will return to Green Bay with the Packers today in splendid condition. Mel Brewer, an Illinois guard on the Packer draft list but unsigned, had a very good evening in the Stars' forward wall. He was captain of the Illini last season. His home is in Carbondale, Ill. While it has been doubtful for some time whether he would join the Packers, his performance last night may change things. He lists no employment at present, but has given no reason for anyone to believe that he will turn pro. Harold Van Every, the Minnesota back who is a Packers for sure, saw lots of action, most of it good. He was in a blocking role most of the time, and sometimes his efforts were lost in the All-Star parade of players. He came into the game on the fourth play after the start, replacing the Packers' Lou Brock of Purdue. Brock was used sparingly, and also as a blocker, so it was difficult to judge his work from the top of Soldier field where the press boxes are located...GOES OUT OF GAME: With a half-dozen notable expectations, just about the time one of the unfamiliar All-Stars was spotted and sight trained on him, he went out of the game. Those expectations included Kenny Washington, the great colored back from UCLA who lived up to his press clippings. He was in the thick of it much of the time, running and passing in the best All-American style. He will return to school for a master's degree. Regardless of what he did and how great his worth would be to a professional team, he won't show up in a National league lineup. The league teams do not use Negro players. George Halas of the Chicago Bears, who was present with his entire squad, has picked himself quite a package in Clyde Douglas Turner, better known as Bulldog, the center from Hardin-Simmons university who started the game and performed in a laudatory manner whenever called upon later. Turner has signed his Bear contract, and adds his strength to the already tough duo of Bausch, Chesney. Halas and his team left after the game for Erie, Penn., to meet the Pittsburgh Steelers in an exhibition game there tonight. Wayland Becker, Green Bay product and former Packer end, was in the party that made the trip. Also from outstanding All-Stars last night, Halas has Lee Artoe of California, probably the Collegians' top tackle last night. Artoe weighs 225 pounds and is 6 feet 3 inches tall...SEES SCANT ACTION: George Seeman, Nebraska end signed by the Packers, played only briefly. Besides Evans, Ken Kavanaugh of Louisiana State, Bill Fisk of Southern California, Robert Winslow of Southern California, and William Anahu of Santa Clara cut fancy end capers for the Stars. Kavanaugh is under contract to the Bears and Fisk has been signed by Detroit. Both Winslow and Anahu are on the desired list of college players for pro material, but have made plans for graduate work in college. Another All-Star who impressed the onlookers as being made of the kind of stuff that makes professional was Frank Emmons, fullkback from Oregon who played some especially hot defensive ball. Robert Hoffman, a USC end with pro promise, has been signed by the Washington Redskins. Olie Cordill of Rice, who was kept out by an injury suffered early in All Star practice, goes to Cleveland, so Green Bay fans still get a chance to see him perform. John Schiechl, the Santa Clara center who shared pivot honors on the Stars team with Turner, plans to open a cocktail lounge in San Francisco. Frank Ivy of Oklahoma, signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers, had a good night at end. Stanley Andersen, tackle from Stanford, has been signed by the Chicago Cardinals, but Conzelman divulged between halves that a trade is pending which would send him to Cleveland for Hugh McCullough, Oklahoma halfback with one year's professional experience. Conzelman makes no bones about the back that he needs, a back who can pass. In fact, he infers, without complaining, that he could use a little bit of everything. Dr. John Bain Sutherland, erstwhile University of Pittsburgh mentor who made his pro debut as coach of the Brooklyn Dodgers, was an interesting spectator along with Dan Topping, Dodgers' owner, and Mrs. Topping, Sonja Heinie of skating and movie fame. Remembered notes as the paper began to run out: Esco Saarkinen, starting All-Star end who passed on a Packer contract for a job as athletic director at Lancaster, O., high school, was in the game comparatively little. He is a former Ohio State star...Jim Logan of Indiana, passed up in the professional draft list, performed creditably at guard for the Stars. He plans to enter medical school.. Dr. Clarence W. Spears, Toledo university coach, took in the show and along with hundreds of other football mentors, liked the looks of the Packers. Spears always has been a great friend of the Green Bay team...Fred Snite, Jr., the paralysis victim who became known as "the boy (now man) in the iron lung" was cheered by the multitudes when he left a few minutes before the game in his specially built trailer...The minute's memorial observance to the late Noble Kizer, who died in June, was impressive. Everyone stood to honor the memory of the former Purdue athletic director who was head coach of the first All-star team...EMPHASIS ON PATRIOTISM: The patriotic note predominantly the extravagant show which opened the night's program, and entertained the fans between halves. A magnificent undertaking in lighting, music and marching, it stressed the note of Americanism and the crowd responded in spirited manner...Bill Osmanski, the Chicago Bears fullback, was received the most valuable player award from last year's All-Star game. The award was made by Frances Jones of Riverside, Ill., a Rosary college junior. At the same time Parker Hall, formerly of Mississippi and now of the Cleveland Rams, received the Joseph F. Carr memorial ring symbolic of the most valuable player to a National league team during the season. Carl Storck, president of the league, made the presentation. Football writers picked both the honored players...All the Big 10 coaches were there. So was Noble Kizer's widow, Mrs. Phyllis Kizer, and Mrs. Bonnie Rockne, widow of the great Notre Dame coach...Gus Dorais of Detroit university, whose All-Stars defeated the Packers in 1938, saw the Green Bay team return to even the count in the greatest scoring game of them all...Glenn Cliffe Bainum of Northwestern university does an All-Star job of directing the assembled band. Handled that chore ever since the inauguration of the game...ALL-STAR SHOW: In fact, all way around it was an All-Star show with an all-star cast before an all-star audience. The only dissenters were the pigeons who use the top of Soldier field for a loft. It interfered with their sleep..Blocking by the Packer team, as for instance Larry Craig and Buckets Goldenberg, was on championship par. Charlie Brock did a swell job for an injured (or well, for that matter) man. He showed that he hasn't forgotten the very important lessons he learned in pass defense, and made another interception last night. Bill Lee played lots of right tackle. Ernie Smith's line play and kicking shouldn't be overlooked, but this has to stop somewhere. There still is a tough National league season looming ahead, and a very menacing Chicago Bears outfit. Remember the Bears?
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORTS
AUG 30 (Green Bay) - The ghost which has lurked in the background of the All-Star football scene for the past six years came out into the open last night and established itself as a 14-karat haunt which will disturb the dreams of the game's promoters for many a long month to come. Since the first game between the College All-Americans and the National league champions was played in 1934, one horrible thought has been before the sponsors - that some days a perfectly conditioned, savagely fighting, superbly coordinated professional team would enter the contest in a deadly frame of mind, and would unravel, disrupt, make hash of and totally annihilate the All-Stars. Such a squad arrived last night, and before the game was half over, you knew that fate had caught up with the All-Star games. With rules favoring the college boys, with the cream of the national crop from which to choose, and with the best brains of university football to guide the oversized team, the Collegians yet were unable to cope with a professional team hitting in high gear, playing November football. The forward pass defense of the All-Stars was wholly inadequate to the spectacular overhead game of the Packers. While the ability to throw a football fifty yards and hit an end in the teeth is not to be minimized, the fact remains that on a dozen occasions receivers broke into the clear and caught Packer passes without an enemy being within 15 yards of them. This means that someone was fooled, and it wasn't Green Bay. The Packers disdained the use of their vaunted ground game, except in the third period, when Eddie Jankowski contributed some solid line plunging. After all, why beat your brains out on enemy tackles and guards when you can chew up forty or fifty yards in one gulp through the air? Just what can be done next year to return the All-Stars some of their lost face, and get them back on an even footing, can't be foretold now. Scatter guns would help, or butterfly nets. The chances are, though, that not all professional teams entering the games will take their assignments with the deadly seriousness, and the vicious attention to past injustices, which characterized the Packer play...It was an overwhelming night for Green Bay football fans. Never had their team looked more colorful, more coordinated, save possibly in the 1939 playoff game against the New York Giants. Chicago and Illinois fans sat in awe as the team erased an early deficit, forged into the lead, added to their margin with an ease which made the efforts of the defenders seem ever so futile. Of the All-Stars we liked Banks McFadden best. He probably won't get the most valuable player award, and he may not play pro football, but he was the workhorse of the Stars last night. Ken Washington and Nile Kinnick were hot in spurts, and Amby Schindler was a terror with the ball, but McFadden toiled his head off. Henry Wallace lost some 20,000 votes in the Green Bay area by moving into the broadcast with his acceptance speech, but the Packers were sure of at least 84,567 votes of confidence when they left the stadium. They looked that good.
GREEN BAY FANS GREET PACKERS AFTER VICTORY
AUG 30 (Green Bay) - Hundreds of enthusiastic fans were at the Milwaukee railroad station late this afternoon to greet the Green Bay Packers who last night defeated the College All-Stars, 45 to 28, in the annual All-Star game in Chicago. No formal reception had been planned, but the gathering of the fans at the stadium was evidence of their appreciation of the Packers' victory. Many in the crowd has seen the game, and returned by earlier trains. Others, who battled with the Wallace address on the radio, pieced the story together by radio and newspaper accounts and by questioning the football players for firsthand information...PACKER FANS CELEBRATE: The football special that rolled into Green Bay this morning, carrying several hundred Wisconsin fans who left soon after the game last night, provided a wild picture in assorted victory celebration. Toasts to the winning Packers were drunk in beer, pop, milk or whatever was offered. More sedate fans gathered in coaches farther back and quietly went over the spectacular scoring spree enjoyed by both teams. Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau told well wishers at the station that players who didn't see a lot of action in the game will carry the burden against the Washington Redskins in a non-league game in Milwaukee Monday afternoon. He announced that eight or nine of the regulars would be excused from practice, but the others must be out as usual...LAMBEAU NOTES MISTAKES: "We have a lot to do from now on with the National league schedule ahead," he stated. "We made several mistakes last night. It is nice to be able to win and straighten out the mistakes afterward." The Packers will leave Sunday morning for the Milwaukee exhibition and fans who envision another victory after the successes of last night will follow by auto and train.
EXHIBITION - Green Bay Packers 45, College All-Stars 28
Thursday August 28th 1940 (at Chicago)
GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(CHICAGO) - The Green Bay Packers rolled northward today for an engagement with the Washington Redskins, after nearly blowing a great All-American football team into Lake Michigan in the seventh annual All-Star football game at Soldier field last night. The score was 45 to 28, which comes very close to making a larger total than all the scores of the six previous games. And it was played before a thrilled and incoherent throng of 84,567, largest ever to witness the All-Stars in competition with the professionals. The Packers, as magnificent a piece of gridiron machinery as ever boxed the ears of a presumptuous opponent, reversed every mistake, every bit of tough which dogged them in the 1937 All-Star game. Again and again they fought back the desperate counterattack of the Collegians with the best known defense in football - a scorching offense. They whipped the All-Stars through the air, with Cecil Isbell letting loose three touchdown passes and Arnold Herber throwing two more. Three of the bombs landed into the glue-like gloves of Donald Hutson, the star who once fell on Alabama and since has landed on the professional football scene like a ton of bricks down the clothes chute. Another was caught by Carl Mulleneaux, one of the most brilliant performers in a  game of Stars, and still another was jerked in by Handy Andy Uram, the former Minnesota great. And to prove that the Packers can make progress on the floor, Isbell himself smoked around end for the final Green Bay touchdown. Ernie Smith contributed three vital points at a heart-stopping moment in the second half by planting a field goal over the bars from a sloppy angle. The All-Stars, a team of nuisances, fought back every minute. Had they been allowed the ball oftener, it's hard to say where the scoring would have ended, and as it was Amby Schindler of Southern California cracked the Packer line for two touchdowns, Kenny Washington of U.C.L.A. slid through center for another and Banks McFadden accepted a mighty heave from Washington to wade home on a forward pass execution. There were stars aplenty on the All-American roster, but the invaders from the North provided the guns to outfire them all. The giant, rugged Packer line, although split wide open by certain All-Star goal line sallies, held firm and tough most of the evening. From end to end, through the tackles, guards and centers, it provided the rock against which the Collegians' offense splashed with incomplete success. It held out tacklers so that Green Bay's world-famous aerial squadron could turn loose its bombs and it fought with a spirit which brought furrows to the brows of all visiting professional players and coaches. Behind it, the Packer backs hit hard and often. The ground attack was used only to draw the Collegiate backs out of place, which it did frequently and often. Time and again racing Packer backs and ends hauled in passes without anyone molesting them from a point closer than the yacht club slip. Isbell was as hot as that evening in 1937 which the Packers' extraordinary performance of last night erased from their memories. Paired with Herber, he sparked the pitching end of the sky attack and through the All-Star defenses streamed a constant trickle of racing backs and ends, reaching into the air for the passes which dumped the bottom out of the All-American craft. Joe Laws and Charley Brock, on the shelf with injuries a few days before the game, were as lively a pair of cripples as ever graced the gridiron. Brock inserted one of his patented interceptions to set up the final Packer score, and Laws ran the team like clockwork during his frequent appearances. The trend of Packer substitutions was a work of art. In and out of the game filtered the many replacements, bolstering a wing here, strengthening a flank there, turning counterdrives, providing fresh blood for tired athletes, keeping the Packers always with a dynamic front hammering at the All-Star ramparts, the ramparts which collapsed under the steady drumming. The signed Packers with the All-Stars made various impressions. George Seeman, Nebraska end, and Lou Brock, Purdue halfback, played little. Hal Van Every saw considerable action, as halfback, while Dick Turner did some steady work at end.
TIDE CONSTANTLY CHANGING
The early scoring tide changed so frequently that the crowd was breathless and the press box was a madhouse. The All-Stars scored first, to be tied by the Packers, who went ahead and were deadlocked again. When Green Bay again assumed the lead, it was for good, but the squirming All-Americans kept plugging way, making it necessary for the Packers to score again and again. Not until Ernie Smith's field goal kick sailed over the bar did Green Bay's boosters - and they were all over the place - relax. Little more than three minutes of playing time had elapsed when the Stars made their first touchdown, Schindler's interception of Isbell's forward pass, and his 15-yard return to the Packer 18-yard line setting the stage. It was too easy, as Schindler rapped the ball across in three plays, the All-Star blockers brushing aside the Packer linemen with discouraging ease. Schindler crossed the last stripe standing up, and when Nile Kinnick kicked the extra point, the score was 7 to 0.
HURLS LONG PASS
The Packers hadn't even started. Four plays later, with the ball on the Green Bay 19-yard line, Isbell raced back to his 10 and exploded a charge that sailed 60 yards through the night air and landed in Hutson's arms on the All-Star 30 with such precision and timing that the speeding end never changed his pace. It was the play of the game, as Hutson sped onward to the goal, ignoring Kinnick and Van Every along the way. When Ernie Smith placekicked the extra point, the score was tied at 7 apiece. Just two plays after the next kickoff the Packers scored again. Van Every fumbled and Russ Letlow recovered for Green Bay on the Stars' 26-yard line. Isbell whipped a pass to Mulleneaux, who made a peculiar catch of the wobbly ball as he backed over the goal line, center Turner being too late for anything but congratulations. Ernie Smith again kicked the extra point, and that gave the Packers a 14 to 7 lead.
KINNICK RETURNS PUNT
The All-Americans struck back the next time late in the first period, when a 20-yard punt return by Kinnick, plus a 25-yard gulp on a Kinnick to Ken Kavanaugh forward pass, set the ball on the Packer 1-yard line. Bob Kellogg, Tulane back, failed to move it closer as the quarter ended. Line plays by Kellogg and Washington failed at the start of the next period, the Packer line making a sensational stand, but on the last down Washington found the hole in center and scooted through for a touchdown. Kellogg kicked the extra point, and the score was knotted at 14-all. Right back came the Packers, scoring a touchdown on another depth bomb play. With the ball on the Green Bay 40, Uram sprinted in the clear and hauled in Arnold Herber's clean pass. Uram weaved around a couple of All-Stars, and left Emmons flat-footed on the 10-yard line as he reversed his field and crossed the line. Tiny Engebretsen kicked the extra point and the Packers led by 21 to 14. They never were tied or trailing again.
SETTING THE STAGE
The Packers worked in All-Star country for awhile, until an 8-yard punt return by Joe Laws brought the pigskin to the Stars' 35. A forward pass was incomplete. Then Isbell flipped another deadly toss over the goal line to Hutson, who shook off the restraining influence of McFadden and Kinnick, picked the ball out of the air and fell down. From a sitting position, he flipped the ball back to the referee and the crowd's roar swept down the field. Ernie Smith kicked the extra point and the Packer lead was 28 to 14. Still the All-Americans were full of fight. The next kickoff was returned by Kenny Washington to the Stars' 28-yard line, and two forward pass plays ate up the rest of the distance to the Packer goal line. The first was a 16-yard affair from Kinnick to McFadden, bringing a first down on the All-Star 44, and the next, using the same combination, sent the receiver speeding down the west side of the field to the goal line, a 56-yard play.
LEAD IS REDUCED
Clarke Hinkle turned a spectacular somersault attempting to grab McFadden. Kinnick dropkicked the extra point, and the Green Bay lead was 28 to 21. The third period was the closest to a defensive engagement which the evening produced. It was the only stanza in which the All-Stars failed to score, and the Packers negotiated but a single touchdown. Eddie Jankowski paved the way with some spectacular line plunging, bringing the ball to the Collegians' 28-yard line. At this point Herber and Hutson stuck together a bullet forward pass, and Carl Mulleneaux carved a path for the receiver to the goal line, Hutson personally passing up Kinnick near the line. Ernie Smith booted the point and the score was 35 to 21.
MARGIN ISN'T SAFE
Even then it wasn't safe. Early in the fourth period Washington's passes moved the ball in, and finally one for 17 yards to the ever-present Schindler brought a first down on the Green Bay 12. Schindler hit right tackle for six yards, added three at left tackle and Washington made it first down two years from the goal. The Packers couldn't stop the run, and in two plays Schindler was over, driving through center for the score. Kinnick kicked the extra point, and the count was 35 to 28, with the Collegians again in tying distance. This is where Ernie Smith's field goal broke the tension. Forward passing by Isbell, reception by Hutson and Gantenbein, and line bucking by Hinkle enabled the Packers to penetrate All-Star territory, and Ernie kicked his goal from the a left side angle on the 34-yard line. The score was 38 to 28, and the game looked safe.
BROCK INTERCEPTS PASS
Charley Brock's interception of Washington's forward pass late in the game moved the Packers to the Stars' 29-yard line, and an Isbell to Mulleneaux aerial gobbled up 25 more yards for a first down on the 4. Hinkle couldn't find an opening in the line, and Isbell followed a clear path cut by Goldenberg around right end to score standing up. Hutson kicked the point, the score was 45 to 28, and there was your ball game.

PACKERS BATTLE WASHINGTON REDSKINS AT STATE FAIR PARK ON MONDAY
AUG 31 (Green Bay) - Green Bay's huge professional football machine, its cogs scarcely dented by contact with the College All-Stars at Chicago Thursday night, was back at work in its home shop today, but only for a few hours. Tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock the Packers will leave via Milwaukee Road for Milwaukee, where Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock they will meet the Eastern division's likeliest title contenders, the Washington Redskins, in a Labor day, non-league encounter. Coach Curly Lambeau noted with pleasure today that only two members of his big squad, which waded enthusiastically through the All-Stars for a 45 to 28 victory, will be unable to see action against the Redskins Monday. They are George Svendsen, center, who rode the bench Thursday night with an injured leg, and Frank Balazs, fullback, who dislocated his shoulder against the All-Stars. Balazs was taken to St. Luke's hospital at Chicago by Dr. W.W. Kelly, team physician, and after the dislocation was reduced he returned to the hotel, later accompanying the Packers home. Dr. Kelly said today that Balazs will be out of action for three weeks, and George Svendsen probably for less. The only other casualty in the All-Star game was guard Pete Tinsley, who acquired a severe bruise of his instep, but no fracture. Tinsley may be handicapped for awhile. The Packers expect to use their new men extensively against Washington, as well as the veteran material which was employed sparingly against the All-Stars. Lambeau probably will start Connie Mack Berry at left end, Champ Seibold at left tackle, Lou Midler at left guard, Tom Greenfield at center, Howard (Smiley) Johnson at right guard, Paul Kell at right tackle, Dick Weisgerber at blocking quarterback, Jimmy Lawrence at left half, any of his signal callers at right half and Larry Buhler at full. Johnny Blood will be ready to play, and very probably will be used. He may start at the right half post. The advance ticket sale has been large both in Green Bay and at Milwaukee. Rain was falling at Milwaukee today, but clearer skies were expected for Labor day. A big upswing in sale of season tickets locally also has been noted in he last two or three days, as fans got themselves in line for the Packers' home schedule. Three members of the All-Star football squad - George Seeman, Lou Brock and Dick Evans - reported for a Hotel Northland meeting this morning, and the fourth, Hal Van Every, was expected later in the day. These All-Americans probably will see little if any action Monday, but they will be available for service the following Saturday, when the Kenosha Cardinals will play here. The fine work of Ambrose Schindler, Southern California back, who started at quarterback for the All-Stars and switched to full, has excited comment around Green Bay, as Schindler is on the Packer draft list. Coach Lambeau does not expect Schindler to play with the Packers this season, as he already has accepted a coaching position, but he expressed the belief that the U.S.C. sensation very probably will be with Green Bay for the 1941 season. Eight Packers who saw the heaviest service against the Collegians were excused from today's outdoor drill, the group included Cecil Isbell, Clarke Hinkle and Carl Mulleneaux, who were in action most of the evening Thursday. The Packers will stay at the Schroeder hotel while in Milwaukee, and will leave for Green Bay Monday night at 9 o'clock on the Milwaukee Road. Then they will settle down for intensive practice prior to the Kenosha exhibition and the opening of the National league schedule against the Philadelphia Eagles here Sept. 15. Whether or not the Packers again can ride to the baking attitude they reaches against the All-Stars is problematical, but with the use of many men who didn't play much Thursday, Lambeau is trying to duplicate that flaming spirit. Without doubt, the Redskins will be tougher than the All-Stars, and a victory over the Packers, who defeated them, 24 to 14, at Milwaukee last fall, would be a sweet pill for Coach Ray Flaherty to absorb. The Redskins already are on the battle scene, having arrived at Milwaukee this morning at 6:10 from Spokane, Wash., where they conducted their preparatory exercises. Monday they will be prepared to throw the works to catch the National league champions on the rebound from their conquest at Chicago. The Wisconsin team is staying at the Wisconsin hotel...STARTING TEAM SET: For a starting lineup against the Packers, Coach Flaherty intends to use Wayne Millner, Notre Dame, left end; Turk Edwards, Washington State, left tackle; Bill Young, Alabama, left guard; Vic Carroll, Nevada, center; Chuck Slagle, North Carolina, right guard; Jim Barber, San Francisco, right tackle; Charlie Malone, Texas A. and M., right end; Ernie Pinckert, Southern California, quarterback; Frank Filchock, Indiana, left halfback; Ed Justice, Gonzaga, right halfback; and Andy Farkas, Detroit, fullback. No  matter who starts, it won't be long before Slingin' Sammy Baugh is called into action, for when Washington wants to throw passes and Filchock isn't connecting, Baugh is the boy who gets the call. The Redskins are tougher, headier and more experienced by far than the All-Stars, and furthermore, they'd like to win this game. It doesn't count in the standings, but it will go down on the season's record as a blot on the standard of the team which loses it, and both coaches will handle their men as though a league win or loss was in the balance. Green Bay fans who are planning to visit Milwaukee for the occasion, and do not wish to go into the city, are reminded that their best route to State Fair park is to follow Highway 57 to Highway 100, north of Milwaukee, turn right on 100 and follow it to West Allis, in which the park is located.
REDSKINS HERE 37 STRONG FOR PACKER GAME
AUG 31 (Milwaukee) - Thirty-seven strong and with six weeks of training in Spokane, Wash., behind them, the Washington Redskins under Coach Ray Flaherty arrived in Milwaukee Saturday morning for their exhibition game with the Green Bay Packers at State Fair park Monday afternoon. Except for Andy Farkas, who hurt his knee the last day of camp, the squad was in tip-top shape for its first real test of the fall. Washington generally is considered the best team in the east. Last year's lineup, nosed out of the eastern championship by the New York Giants on a disputed placekick in the last seconds of the last game, has been strengthened right down the line by the addition of a half dozen very promising new men. The Skins arrived shortly before breakfast, set up their headquarters at the Wisconsin hotel and went out to State Fair park to regain their land legs after the long trip from the coast. Owner George Marshall accompanied the squad. Marshall is unreservedly enthusiastic about this season. He not only predicts that the team which wins the eastern championship this year must beat Washington, but he adds that no team is going to beat Washington. Flaherty, while optimistic, is not quite so enthusiastic. He sees a tough road ahead, but admits the Redskins have the stuff to travel it. "We have added passing and kicking strength in the backfield with Roy Zimmerman of San Jose State," he explained. "We have more strength at the ends with Willard Perdue of Duke and Sandy Sanford of Alabama. We've improved the middle of the line with Steve Andrako of Ohio State and Bob Titchenal of San Jose and more blocking strength in the backfield with Bob Hoffman of USC. But it's a tough league and it will be a tough season." Hoffman, one of the backfield standouts in Thursday's night all-star game, joined the squad here. Flaherty believes that Philadelphia, against whom the Packers will open the league season September 15, is the most improved club in the east. Brooklyn should also be tougher under Jock Sutherland, and Pittsburgh will be better. The Giants are always tough. The Redskins will have another workout at State Fair park Sunday afternoon. Monday's game will start at 2 o'clock.
BALASZ LOST TO PACKERS WITH INJURED SHOULDER
AUG 31 (Green Bay) - Green Bay's victory over the college all-stars Thursday night was not without its toll. Frank Balasz of Iowa, substitute fullback, threw out his shoulder making a tackle in the final minute of play and will be lost to the squad for several weeks at least. The rest of the squad emerged from the battle in excellent shape. Some of the boys were weary and some lost quite a bit of weight in the heat, but none except Balasz suffered an injury which might lay him up. Lambeau was naturally happy over the victory, but he also saw much work ahead. He liked especially the play of Mulleneaux, Hutson, Isbell, Buhler, Jankowski, Smith, Brock, Earl Svendsen and Letlow, and he liked the way the team as a unit kept going after points. The failure of the club to do more running did not disturb him. With more work and greater emphasis on the running game, he feels that it will come along to be of real support to the passing game. Lambeau gave the boys a rest Friday and excused several other veterans Saturday, but will have them all out bearing down again in a workout at State Fair park in Milwaukee Sunday. The Packers, who meet Washington in an exhibition at State Fair park Monday afternoon, will leave here Sunday morning at 8 o'clock and work out in the afternoon. The squad was augmented Saturday by the four draftees of 1940 who took park in the all-star game - Hal Van Every of Minnesota, Lou Brock of Purdue, Dick Evans of Iowa and George Seamann of Nebraska. All will be in Packer uniforms for the first time in Monday's game. Lambeau liked the work of Evans at end particularly. Monday's game will be one of two practice games which remain before the start of the season against Philadelphia September 15. Saturday night September 7, the Packers will meet the Kenosha Cardinals here.
PROTESTS POUR IN AFTER RADIO CUTS OFF GAME
AUG 31 (Chicago) - Protests continued to pour in yesterday from football fans throughout the country who were irate at missing more than a half hour of the description of the All-Star game in Soldiers' field Thursday night. This program - over station WGN and the coast-to-coast Mutual network - was interrupted to allow the broadcasting of Henry A. Wallace's acceptance of the Democratic Vice Presidential nomination in Des Moines. The collective anger of the radio audience boiled over in hundreds of telegrams and letters to WGN and other stations in the network. There also was a flood of telephone calls to WGN and the Tribune switchboard during the time the All-Star game was off the air. The tenor of the messages - some in strong and picturesque language - was that Wallace's speech was an unwelcome substitute for the exciting details of the battle between the All-Stars and the Green Bay Packers...HERE ARE SOME SAMPLES: Here is what some of the callers said: "Get that Wallace off the air - quick!" "What gave the Democrat the idea he was more important than a football game?" "He's talking about Roosevelt - we want Washington!" (Kenny Washington was one of the All-Stars.)""We want the fooball game; get that farmer Wallace off.""Kinnick got more votes than Wallace will ever get; we want Kinnick."'I'm surprised at the Tribune allowing Wallace to cut in like this.""What is this - another Democratic dictatorship stunt?""Is Roosevelt so conceited that he thinks we'd rather hear his stooge than the All-Stars?""Kinnick and Eddie Anderson are Iowa's favorite sons, not Wallace."...PREFER ALL-AMERICAN STARS: "Don't tell me the Tribune has gone over to the Democrats.""Let's have the All-Americans, not that All-American agricultural bore.""This is football time; not politics time.""I can hear a political speech any time, but I don't want it tonight with the All-Stars playing.""The Tribune will break faith with its public unless Wallace gets off the air.""Tell Wallace to go back and kill corn.""I turned on my radio after being lured on false pretenses; I thought I was going to hear a football game, not a political harangue."...HE LACKS A BACKFIELD: "Wallace's line was stale, and he has no backfield.""I'll never turn in on Mutual again if there's going to be anything like this.""Freedom of the air doesn't mean freedom for politicians to cut in on something the public is enjoying.""Corn Wallace has slaughtered a lot of votes for the Democrats.""Every time Wallace opens his mouth he gets his party in hot water. This stunt of his is a lulu.""Wallace couldn't have staged a greater betrayal of his party if the Republicans paid for the broadcast.""What college did Wallace play football for?" A crowd which has gathered in Nathan Hale court adjoining the WGN building listened to the game but dispersed when Wallace came on the air, returning after the game broadcast resumed. And here are some sample complaints from telegrams and letters: "Are we mad! We have supported the Democratic Party 8 long years. Have decided that politics cannot interfere with our sports. We have voted for All-Star players, now pledge our votes to Wilkie." (From Sigma Tau fraternity at Cincinnati) "When did the Chicago Tribune, the world's greatest newspaper, become subservient to the Wallace Farmer?""I did not think the Tribune would present any politician, especially a guy like Wallace, in the middle of your creation - the All-Star game.""I have heard the seed merchant from Iowa make a speech. He interferes with my All-Star radio program. I ask if it is treasonable or seditious to ask you whether or not the President may run for a third term and mint Wisconsin petition authority of the nation, to wit, its Congress, to secede from the nation and ask the rest of the northwest territory to fall in?" (From Attorney Carl F. Young of Green Bay)...TOO LATE TO CHANGE, HE SAYS: G.W. Johnstone, radio director of the Democratic national committee, said yesterday that during the last week in July he called in representatives of the three national radio chains - Mutual, National and Columbia - and these representatives indicated that the nights of Aug. 22 or 29 would be satisfactory for Wallace's broadcast. There was no definite commitment at that time, Johnstone admitted. About three weeks ago, he informed Mutual and the other two chains that Aug. 29, between 9:30 to 10 p.m. central daylight time, was the time chosen. A day later Mutual's New York office notified him by night letter than the time decided on would cut into the All-Star broadcast and requested the time or date for Wallace be changed. "This was unfortunate," Johnstone said, "but nothing could be done because all arrangements had already been made for Wallace's talk."...GAME BOOKED LONG AGO: Mutual officials said no definite agreement had been reached when they received Johnston's notification of the date. The All-Star game had been booked long before. It was pointed out that Wallace's speed could have been broadcast at other times during the night as the whole period from 7 to 10 p.m. is favorable radio time and the All-Star game did not begin until 8:30. Five minutes after Wallace went on the air, the telephone wires were hot with indignant protest. More than 1,500 calls - some of them long distance - swamped the night telephone force before the game came back on the air, and the special bulletin service was used.
SCHINDLER VOTED MOST VALUABLE ALL-STAR PLAYER
AUG 31 (Chicago) - Ambrose Schindler of Southern California joined Cecil Isbell and Bill Osmanski, former Purdue and Holy Cross stars, respectively, in the select class of "most valuable" player in an All-Star football game. Sportwriters at Thursday night's seventh annual All-Star contest voted Schindler outstanding for the Collegians, the Trojan ace beating out Nile Kinnick of Iowa by a small margin. Isbell won the honor in 1938, first year of the award, and Osmanski was voted the trophy a year ago. Schindler will be presented a trophy between the halves of next year's game. Schindler put on a brilliant performance despite the fact that the Green Bay Packers passed the All-Stars dizzy for a 45 to 28 victory. Schindler paved the way for he first touchdown with an intercepted pass, scored twice himself and blocked effectively.
REDSKINS, PACKERS TO TEST TITLE HOPES
SEPT 1 (Milwaukee) - Green Bay's first account of the season has been settled. The college upstarts have been put in their place. Now come other and bigger things, starting with the exhibition against the Washington Redskins at State Fair park Monday afternoon. The kickoff is scheduled at 2 o'clock. As an exhibition, the game will not count in the standings, of course. As a test of what the Packers may really expect this fall, however, it will be just the thing. It was one thing to ram the ball down the college boys' throats. It will be quite another to do it against the pros. The Redskins, who arrived Saturday morning in time to work out at State Fair park, need little introduction. They played the Packers to a virtual standstill before 25,000 fans a year ago, although they lost. They later missed the eastern division championship when the Giants beat them on a disputed placekick in the last 15 seconds of the final game. They will go to the post this year unanimously favored to win their way into the playoff. George Marshall, the laundry man who owns the club, goes away out on a limb about this team. He doesn't see any team that can beat his. Ray Flaherty, the coach, does not go quite so far but he admits it is good. All but three of the 1939 squad - Jim Karcher, Keith Birlem and Jimmy German have returned. The veterans include Sammy Baugh and Frank Filchock, the passing twins; Jim Barber, all-league tackle; Wayne Millner, Charlie Malone, Bob Masterson and Bob McChesney, a quartet of reliable ends; Ernie Pinckert, a member of the original Redskins of 1932, and big Turk Edwards, who can still play a lot of tackle and who helps Flaherty coach. The nucleus of veterans would have been stronger except for an injury to Andy Farkas, high scoing halfback, on the last day of scrimmage in Spokane. Farkas injured his knee and Sunday will undergo an operation here that will keep him on the sidelines until early in November at least. The squad includes at least a half dozen very promising rookies - Roy Zimmerman of San Jose, one of the best punters and passers; Steve Anderson of Ohio State, center; Bob Titchenal of San Jose, center; Bob Seymour of Oklahoma and Ray Hare of Gonzaga, halfbacks; Bob Hoffman of Southern California, blocking back, and Willard (Bolo) Perdue of Duke, an end. The layout is really promising. Except for George Svendsen, who was injured in practice before the all-star game, Frank Balasz, who hurt his shoulder in the last minute of Tuesday's game, and Pete Tinsley, who has an injured instep, the Packers will go into the game at full strength. Lambeau, however, will undoubtedly use his new men as much as possible. A likely starting lineup would have Connie Mack Berry and Bob Temple at ends; Champ Seibold and Paul Kell at tackles; Lou Midler and Smiley Johnson at guards; Tom Greenfield at center, and Dick Weisgerber, Jimmy Lawrence and Larry Buhler in the backfield. Only right half is doubtful. Arnie Herber, Joe Laws or Johnny Blood may get the call. The squad took a light workout in Green Bay Saturday and will take another at State Fair park Sunday afternoon. Washington also will work at the park Sunday. Although the ground crew had only a week to work after the annual state fair, the field is in excellent condition. Recent rains have brought the grass up fast. A new scoreboard, which includes an electric clock, will be used for the first time. It is at the south end of the field. Monday's game will be followed by another exhibition, with the Kenosha Cardinals at Green Bay next Saturday night. The Packers will open the league season against Davey O'Brien and the Philadelphia Eagles September 15.
CHIEFS TAKE TO AIR FOR A 34-0 VICTORY OVER GOGEBIC RANGERS IN EXHIBITION
SEPT 1 (Weyauwega) - The Milwaukee Chiefs of the American Professional Football league, defeated the Gogebic Rangers of Ironwood, Mich., 34 to 0, here Sunday. Scoring in every quarter and using 32 men, the Chiefs uncorked a passing attack that the Rangers were never able to bottle up. The game was only three minutes old when John Doehring, fullback, threw a 60 yard pass to Joe Murray in the end zone to score. Humphrey failed to convert. Later in the first quarter the Chiefs recovered a fumbled lateral and followed with a pass, Novskofski to Barnes, to put the ball on the 9-yard line. Novakofski skirted right end and scored. Eckl added the extra point. Near the end of the second quarter the Chiefs took the ball on the midstripe after an exchange of punts. Strong passed to Barnes who was downed on the 30-yard marker. Biaha was good for eight over left tackle and Strong then passed to Hickey on the goal line for the score, giving the Chiefs a 20-0 advantage at the half. Maltsch passed to Barnes in the end zone for the next score. Eckl kicked the extra point. The final tally came in the last three minutes of play when Weenie Wilson passed to Barnes who brought the ball to Ironwood's 38. Wilson then passed to Blaha on the 18. Maltsch, who replaced Wilson, circled right end to the 12-yard line and from there passed to Bergwanger for the tally. Eckl kicked the extra point. After the game the squad packed and entrained for Milwaukee where on Tuesday it will start practicing for its first home game, an exhibition with the St. Louis Gunners on Sunday September 8.
