NEWS AND NOTES
IT WAS FINESSE, SAYS HALAS AFTER CHICAGO BEAR VICTORY
SEPT 29 (Green Bay) - "Wait till Chicago," was a general sentiment being voiced by most of the Green Bay Packers following their 17 to 25 defeat at the hands of the Chicago Bears at City stadium Sunday. The Bears will be waiting. In the first place, it was revealed after the debacle, the Bears were looking to the date of Sept. 28 with no less interest than the average person eyes Dec. 25 on a calendar. "It was worth it," Hunk Anderson, line coach, said after the game. "All those nights of planning and figuring must have helped." Luke Johnsos, next to him, agreed. Luke is end coach. But the happiest man in City stadium (and a total of 24,876 crowded thew stadium) was George Halas, Esq., who summed up the result with this explanation: "It was finesse, nothing more, that beat the Packers today." Halas denied that Bear power was any greater than that of the Packers. He frankly stated that "the tables may be turned in Chicago." However, he didn't sound convincing. Room 707 of the Hotel Northland helped hold the Bear officials down, but the seams strained and the ceiling was in position to bounce. While Chicago fans and well wishers rushed in to offer their congratulations, George managed an extra word or two. "We won the game on Bob Snyder's second field goal," he stated. "Before that we lacked the margin of a win. Being less than a touchdown ahead of the Packers isn't enough, no matter how little time there is left to play." The noise in Room 707 subsided while George placed a long distance telephone call to St. Louis. The first "rational" thing that the Bears' head man did was call his mother (age 77) who lives there. She shared his appreciation of the fruits of victory...COULD USE PACKERS: Then George returned to the general milling and conversation. "No," he said, "our power today wasn't any better than the Packers. But we did come through when it counted. I'd like to have some of Curly's (Lambeau) boys on my club. We could use them." Possibly it was the "breaks" and a couple of fumbles that put the Packers in a hole, and except for sparkling play in the second quarter and again late in the game, kept them there. No one will deny any credit to the Packer individuals who worked their hearts and bodies out attempting to wind up in front. But Mr. Fan, the fellow who does the Fifth Quarter guessing, decided that the Bears of 1941 are about the strongest gridiron machine that ever has been shown here. Maybe Mr. Fan is tossing his superlatives carelessly. Yet, he has to offer in support of his arguments: Bill Osmanski, the hottest fullback to show here, or in Milwaukee, this season. Sid Luckman, whom the crowd may ride but who nevertheless deserves all the credit he gets for the direction on the field. Ken Kavanaugh, pass snatching Louisiana State end who scored the Bears' first touchdown and very nearly come home with another by getting behind the Packer secondary...REAL SCORING THREAT: George McAfee, like the Packers' Don Hutson, a scoring threat on every play he is in the ball game. Joe Stydahar and Danny Fortmann in a line that could be good without them, but performs brilliantly with them. Ray McLean, the halfback from little St. Anselm's college. He brought the Bears their second six points by waltzing over the goal line on a quick opening play that caught the Packers flat-footed. Barring the possibilities of wholesale accidents of one kind or another, the Bear lineup will have those boys along with the rest of the bruisers for the rest of the season. The Packers demonstrated Sunday that the Bears CAN be beaten. From looking over at least four other league teams thus far, it isn't quite clear to us just who - except the Packers - can turn that possibility into fact. The Bears can be beaten by an alert, fighting, inspired football team that will match it in power. As long as they show the strength to come back from behind, grab the ball when they need it, and push as a unit, it is going to take all-out football to turn them back. It takes effort, even greater than the dejected Packers offer...BILL LEE IS HURT: Bandages and bruises are the Packers' badge of courage in defeat. That isn't what the Packers wanted. The bumps they gladly take in stride. But the scoreboard doesn't credit that sort of thing. Bill Lee wound up with a closed eye, a cut on his face, and an injured hand. Ernie Pannell was cut over his lip. Many boys were hurt in various parts of the anatomy. They worked, but it wasn't enough. The old story about what constitutes a letdown and what is opposition power came up again yesterday. Any time an opponent scores on the Packers, a fan is inclined to say, "The Packers are having their usual letdown." Coming from City stadium to the Hotel Northland, Bill Osmanski said, "We are all right except for that letdown after our 15 points." Ford Pierson, the NBC sports announced, broadcast his first professional game here. He handled the Ohio State-Missouri game Saturday. Pierson, like most newcomers to the Packer scene, was impressed by the crowd and the spirit of football addicts here. Howie Kohlbeck, who assisted him in spotting, reports that Pierson and Cleeve Conway, WENR station man, had nice things to say about the Packer veterans, Clarke Hinkle, Buckets Goldenberg and Don Hutson...HINKLE IS PRAISED: Hink came in for considerable postgame comment. Luke Johnsos said, "Why doesn't that guy stick to the Kimberly-Clark paper mill? I'd like to see him really retire." And Buckets..well, Saturday night somebody told Halas that Goldenberg might be all right for a few minutes at a time, that he had slipped beyond the stages of pro football utility for any notable period. "Somebody was kidding me," Halas said yesterday. "He was out there for the longest, hardest 'five minutes' that I ever saw." The big crowd saw lots of football, even in Packer defeat. Carl Mulleneaux's catch of Cecil Isbell's long pass..Don Hutson's touchdown..Ed Frutig's blocking on Hutson's touchdown..Larry Craig's efforts in the unglamorous role of blocking back..Cecil Isbell's hard work despite a terrific pounding that at one point included too many of Clyde Turner's knees, and without cause...TOO MUCH DECEPTION: From an impartial viewpoint, one of the greatest examples of offensive play was the Bears' second touchdown when McLean carried it over after just a handful of Bear plays. On that quick opening play, with altogether too many Packers watching the man in motion, McLean went over without a hand laid on him. Touchdowns aren't made against the Packers that way very often. Just about everybody and his cousin were here for the game. Paddy Driscoll and Mrs, Driscoll..Bob Fox of the Chicago brewing family..Elmer Layden.."Spider" Reinhart, who played football at Yale..Carl Roth, who manages the Sheboygan Redskins in the National Basketball league..Mr. and Mrs. Kermit Sellvold of the polo playing Sollvolds..and lots more. Reinhart fancied the Bear line. (He presented about the same train of thought that George Musso, veteran Bear guard, did earlier. Musso appeared only briefly in the game. But he acted in the role of diagnostician on the bench.)...PLEASED WITH STANDLEE: Driscoll warned anybody that was on the side of the Bears' opposition that "Norman Standlee is going to do all right at fullback." (Halas was very pleased with Standlee and Osmanski. Joe Maniaci was injured in the game against the New York Giants, and Gary Famiglietti wasn't especially needed.) Fox, like Bert Nolle and the rest of the Bear affiliates, is so Chicago minded that Green Bay didn't even count except as the 11 other fellows on the field. (He is an uncle of Mrs. Leonard Liebman of Green Bay, and the father of Betty Jane Fox, closest friend of Virginia Halas, who is George's daughter.) Layden conferred with his officials at halftime after both Halas and Packer Coach Lambeau cleared up any possible misunderstandings about controversial play. He reminded them that their responsibility was to keep the game under control, and that theirs was the authority to do so. "Don't let the players argue with you," he advised. "Make your ruling, and walk away from them. Stick to your ruling." (The Bears still believe there is some question about Charlie Brock's catch of the partially blocked Isbell pass in the second quarter. They claim that no Bear touched the ball, which would have made Charlie an ineligible receiver. It so happened that an offside penalty was called on the Bears on the same play, and the Packers collected that yardage. The movies, Halas said, will show who was right.)...LIKE POLO BETTER: The Sellvolds, who are from Marinette, still like polo better, especially when the Packers lose. In the party were Mr. and Mrs. Horace Gibbs of Perkins, Mich., typical northern Michigan fans of the Green Bay team. Their disappointment in the Packer loss was keen, but they'll be back for more. One Dr. George Wright of Oregon was announced as coming one of the longest distances to the game, and a couple of fans from Mexico City were on hand. For living the farthest from Green Bay, though, Walter Lazak of Cape Town, South Africa, must take first honors. Very British, Mr. Lazak is suffering his first exposure to the American brand of football, and he really likes it. With him was Dick Wells of Boston, formerly of the Princeton gridiron. Both are temporarily at work in Milwaukee - thus, the jaunt to Green Bay. John Ebeling was host to them. Probably two of the hottest Milwaukee fans who never miss the Packers - and haven't for years - are Morrie Anderson and Bob Baker, who attended with their wives. Saturday night, the Bakers and Andersons were convinced that nothing short of hell and high water could stop the Packers. They saw the hell and high water Sunday. But they have joined the chorus of so many others, "Wait till Chicago."...LIKES HALAS SYSTEM: Little things help make the game more interesting for people, even though they might put pressure on natural loyalties. For example, Lorraine Shaughnessy will scream her loudest for the Packers, but as a Shaughnessy (really a relative of some kind) she adheres to the power of the T-formation, and exercises fidelity to the Halas system. It was cold at the stadium, too cold for the fans who came unprepared but not bad football weather otherwise. One of the Bear property managers was delegated to inspect the park following the morning's rain. "Remarkable," he said. "Finest I've seen." Yet, while the rain failed to affect the playing field, the cold penetrated the skin of many. Ken Irvin, of St. Joseph, Mo., shivered from kickoff to final whistle. "It was worth it," he remarked, "to see that football game..but gosh, it was cold." Five former Packers from out of the city put in an appearance. Paul Miller drove up from New Holstein, where he is employed. Ripon offered Roger Grove. Jab Murray was here from Marinette, and Eddie Kotal came over from Stevens Point as usual. Arthur (Red) Bultman made the trip from Milwaukee. "Lambeau still had a great team," Kotal remarked during the fifth quarter. "Don't take anything away from the boys who played out there today. I know what they went through. And I hate to lose."...POLICE KEEP BUSY: The policemen had a busy day, but no trouble of consequence. Fights cropped up in all parts of the stands - something that is expected on Bear-Packer day in Green Bay. Most of them were within parties - friends who had come to the game together, and then decided to square off over some difference of opinion. One near battle was outside the sphere of friendship. Fortunately, it didn't mature. George Steffen, the former Golden Gloves boxer who ushers, attempted to keep the crowd moving toward seats as the third quarter started. A couple of slightly inebriated men objected, and offered to back their objections with fisticuffs. The law interfered before George started swinging, which was very fortunate indeed for the inebriates. While the officiating, that of the police and game officials, was noteworthy, one thing remains in doubt in respect to the latter. Why Sid Luckman, on the playing field, was permitted to carry on a running conversation with Halas, who was on the sidelines had not been explained. Nor will it be. In Chicago on Nov. 2, or back in Green Bay next year, if Sid decides to stroll over for a conference with his chief, the officials will not object. It seems to be just one of those things. Dr. Stephen Mokrohisky, former radiologist at St. Vincent hospital and now a medical officer in the United States Army at Camp Grant, came from Rockford to see the "crushers" perform. For people like Steve, the game offered an opportunity for seeing old friends, even though the Packer cause was lost. Like Louisville on derby day...EVERYONE WAS JITTERY: Just about everybody who feels the Packer cause keenly - and lots of us do - was jittery before and during the game. Dr. W.W. Kelly was no exception. While the optimists voiced "We're in" sentiments, he said, "I'm afraid." His fears proved to be well grounded. On the other hand, the doctor was party to one of the speediest recoveries from sickness on record. Saturday night the doctor invaded the camp of the enemy to administer to the ills of Virginia Halas. Virginia, who today went back to school in Philadelphia, was so sick that it was feared she would have to miss the game. Temperature, upset stomach, and that sort of thing. But Sunday, she was out in fine fettle, and when the game was over, she absolutely was in the pink. A year ago when the Halas clan came to Green Bay, it was George Jr., "Muggy", who became ill...SPENT WEEKS IN BED: His recovery was not so rapid. Weeks afterward were spent in bad. So when Virginia folded Saturday, George remarked, "Green Bay always will give us a headache in some way." The familiar faces shouted greetings to men on the Packer bench as they always will, in victory or defeat. Paul Schuette of Manitowoc, the former Bear guard, was all for Chicago on this particular game. Don Anderson and Charles Hahn of Wausau still have their hearts on Green Bay. And there were many who just came along for the ride. From as far north as Iron Mountain, not believing the warnings about a ticket sellout, disappointed fans came in only to have to get their football via radio. One of them philosophically said afterward: "I suppose I could have heard it on the radio just as well at home, but I wouldn't have had half as much fun."
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORTS
SEPT 29 (Green Bay) - There are heroes in profusion during the course of most Packer games, but despite the great quantity of courageous effort which was put forth against the Chicago Bears yesterday, the boys had trouble in producing very many who were consistently strong throughout the combat. The reason was that for a good part of the game the Bears persisted in making the Packers look bad, and yet for all of that, a few less Green Bay fumbles at vital points probably would have sent the mighty Chicagoans home on the dwindling end of the score. A lot of times Packer defense men appeared to be doing their best, only to find that same best unavailing before the superior Bear power. Time after time we saw guards, tackles and ends carry out their assignments well, and even hit the right man, only to be knocked aside as some blast came roaring through ahead of the ball carrier. The Bears' line plays, particularly between the guards, broke with such devastating fury that many times the Packers didn't seem to be sure who had the ball. This was true particularly on Ray McLean's short touchdown run, when he came through center so fast that the men backing up the line appeared to think he was running interference instead of carrying the ball. At any rate, there scarcely was so much as a friendly slap for him all along the way. The Bears had power which no team could match, but the Packers showed something, too. They showed enough to make that date at Wrigley field Nov. 2 the most important thing ahead on the NFL calendar. Yesterday was the first time most of the Green Bay new men faced the withering attack of the Bruins and if they are the smart players they are supposed to be, they will profit by the experience. Despite the overpowering effect of the invaders' attack, the fact remains that the Packers almost beat them, and that's a good enough buildup for any future meeting. Two old-timers of the Packers, Don Hutson and Clarke Hinkle, who rank one-two on the team's scoring list covering its entire history, monopolized the point getting from the Green Bay angle yesterday. Hinkle scored his 42nd touchdown and kicked his 24th field goal for Green Bay, the nine points raising his lifetime total to 351, more than any other man who ever played for the Packers. Hutson's touchdown was his 48th, and he now needs only two more to tie the record of Verne Lewellen, who made 50 touchdowns during his Packer career. Hutson also kicked extra points No. 25 and 26, raising his grand total to 314, 37 less than Hinkle's. Hinkle, Hutson and Lewellen are the only Packers ever to score more than 300 points in National league competition, and the scoring list reveals that they won't have any company for a long, long time.
CHIEFS BEATEN AGAIN IN AMERICAN LEAGUE
SEPT 29 (Milwaukee) - Those of the town's followers
who had come to believe that nothing more could
happen to Coach Tiny Cahoon's Milwaukee Chiefs have
been laboring under a misapprehension. Out at State
Fair park Sunday afternoon practically everything came
their way except touchdowns. The results was a 10-3
defeat at the hands of the New York Yankees in an
American league game played before about 4,000
spectators. Scoring chances were a dime a dozen but
touchdowns were at a premium for Cahoon's hard
working gang. Three times in the third quarter and once
in the final minute of the game they were stopped cold
within the five yard line. Once Don Perkins, fleet
halfback, juggled the ball as he crossed the goal and
then dropped it. The officials ruled it a touchback
because he did not have possession of the ball. Another
time Earl Ohlgren dropped a pass from Novakofski in
the clear on the 15 yard line. Then Maltsch slipped and
lost a yard on the seven yard stripe. And so it went in discouraging fashion all afternoon. One of the few breaks the Chiefs did get resulted in a first quarter field goal. Hutchinson, tackled viciously by Trost, fumbled and Larsen recovered for the Chiefs on the New York 35. Two first downs, with Novakofski carrying and passing to Ohlgren, carried to the 11. Here New York braced and held for three downs and on the fourth, Bob Eckl stepped back to the 20 and kicked a field goal. Hutchinson's long range kicking kept the Chiefs back on their heels the rest of the half. After Phil Martinovich had missed placements for field goals from 50 and 40 yards away, the Yankees went out and scored the lone touchdown against the wind midway in the second period. The 69 yard drive started after Charley Armstrong, halfback from Mississippi, intercepted a pass. The Americans put together five first downs. Armstrong ripped at the line and tossed short passes to Gallagher and Orf until the visitors had driven the Chiefs back to the seven yard line. Three downs later they were still a foot from paydirt, but Armstrong made it with something to spare on his last chance. Matinovich kicked the seventh point. The Chiefs got position early in the second half when Con Berry took Perkins' pass on the 30 and raced to the nine, a gain of 50 yards. The chance was lost on Perkins' fumble. Weiss intercepted a pass on the 21 for another chance, but the Chiefs bogged down on the four. A poor punt gave them the ball again on the 26. A pass, Maltsch to Temple, carried to the nine, but they stalled again on downs on the three. Just before the third quarter ended, Maltsch got away for 23 yards to the 12. This time the Chiefs took to the air but lost the ball after a series of incomplete pass. After Martinovich booted a 40 yard field goal from an angle in the fourth quarter, the Chiefs were playing for a tie instead of a victory, and they had no better success than before. They finally march 55 yards with the aid of a 15 yard penalty. Perkins and Maltsch picked up nost of the yardage, and finally made it first down on the three. This, surely, was touchdown time. But after Maltsch, Trebbin and Weiss each had taken a dig at the line, the ball was only one yard nearer the goal, and on fourth down Negri intercepted a pass in the end zone and ran the ball three yards out. The game ended one play later. The Chiefs had the edge in first downs, 14-6, and in yards gained by running, but completed only 5 of 17 passes. Merle Larsen played a fine guard at guard. Novakofski, Maltsch and Perkins were the best running bets. For the New Yorkers, a 215 pound tackle from George Washington, named Eulis Keahey, and the irrepressible Armstrong were outstanding.
Chicago Bears fans arrive at the Milwaukee Road station on Oakland Avenue on Green Bay's near west side and prepare to board buses to go to City Stadium for the Bears' game against the Packers.
GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - The Green Bay Packers made the supreme test against the supreme football team before 24,876 at City stadium yesterday afternoon, and the effort wasn't enough. The Chicago Bears whipped their ancient rivals in the 45th National league game between the teams, 25 to 17, with the spectators treated to almost a thrill a minute. The tide of battle surged back and forth along the stadium gridiron, from the opening whistle, and it wasn't until Bob Snyder kicked a 34-yard field goal with three minutes of playing time left in the fourth period, that the victory was beyond the Packers' reach. Even then, with the count 25-17 against them, they forced their way down to the Bears' goal line, passing into the end zone in a desperate attempt to snatch the prize from the invaders. The Chicago line decisively outplayed the Packer forward wall for most of the game, there being several notable exceptions, particularly in the opening minutes of the third period, when a sustained march, much of it along the ground, gave the Packers a touchdown that moved them out in front, 17 to 15. Four plays later the Bears, almost tearing the defenders from the sod, ripped across for their third touchdown of the day and they had the lead again, 22 to 17. It stayed that way until Snyder's clinching field goal, the second he kicked during the day. The other one was for 25 yards in the second period. In losing, the Green Bay team put up a terrific fight, its chief difficulty being an inability to cope consistently with the most powerful attack any football team ever possessed - that which rests among the armaments of the Chicago Bears. When the Bruins got made, when they elected to release all their pent up explosives, it was just a cast of stand back or get hurt. Their deception was perfect. With their plays springing from the mighty T-formation, an ancient offensive display which in this modern era has found a team capable of making it talk, George McAfee, Ray Nolting and Bill Osmanski crashed through the defensive wall repeatedly as low-charging Bear guards, tackles and ends knocked the Packers aside.
IT'S NO WALKAWAY
At that, the Packers might have won. They never gave up the combat, never permitted the game to turn into a rout, although the Bears threatened to drive the team under the stands in the first half. It took Green Bay a long time to find out that its ground attack, which functioned so beautifully against the Cleveland Rams the previous week, was some 80 percent less effective against the Bear line, and as so many times in the past, the principal Packer weapon in yesterday's great game descended upon the Bears from the skies. Hinkle and Hutson accounted for all of the Packers' scoring. The score was 15 to 0 against the Bays with two and a half minutes left to play in the half, when Cecil Isbell pegged nine consecutive forward passes after a Bear kickoff went into the Green Bay end zone. Five of them were complete, the last one being taken by Hutson, who got away on a filtering 40-yard run to the goal line, aided materially by Ed Frutig's sideline block on Ray McLean 20 yards out. Hutson kicked the extra point after that score, and the Packers were trailing 15 to 7. They had another scoring chance immediately afterwards, when Norm Standlee, smacked with stunning force by Buckets Goldenberg, fumbled, Hal Van Every landing on the oval on the Bears' 25-yard line. Time in the half was oozing away, and when three plays failed to net a touchdown, Hinkle stepped back to the 39-yard line and sent home a perfect field goal, altering the score to 15-10 and putting the Packers definitely back into the ball game. The Bears scored their first touchdown late in the first period, on a 44-yard forward pass play, McAfee taking a lateral from Luckman, racing to his left and arching a high toss to Ken Kavanaugh, who got past Joe Laws and pulled home the pill on the 5-yard line, continuing over for the score. Snyder's extra point kick was blocked by Ray Riddick and Charley Brock, giving the Bruins a 6 to 0 lead.
LEAVE PACKERS BEHIND
Early in the second period the Bears were close enough for Snyder to kick his first field goal, and midway through the period, with the ball 13 yards from the Green Bay goal, they caught the Packers flatfooted, McLean riding through center and weaving over, passing within a foot or two of half a dozen Packers who didn't raise a finger to stop him. Lee Artoe's extra point try was low, and the Bears led 15 to 0. That was where the Packers counterattacked. Trailing by only five points, the Packers came out for the second half and blew the Bears back on their heels with the only sustained Green Bay ground campaign of the afternoon. Hinkle, Lou Brock and Isbell followed vicious blocking at the line to tear through for big gains, an Isbell to Hutson pass gobbled up 16 yards, one penalty was attached to the Bears, and the Packers found themselves five yards from pay dirt. Hinkle shot off right end, leaving a litter of Bears in his wake, to reach the 1-yard line, and on the next play he punched through left tackle for the score. Hutson's extra pointer made the score 17 to 15, the only time during the afternoon that the Packers held the lead.
BRINGS BACK KICKOFF
They didn't hold it long. Hinkle's kickoff was taken by McAfee on the Chicago 1-yard line and returned 50 yards before several Packers dragged him down on the Green Bay 49. Osmanski pounded over right guard, twisting away from three or four defensemen, and was off for 23 yards more before Larry Craig pulled him down on the Green Bay 26. Ray Nolting slid through a quick opening in the line and darted 13 more yards, depositing the ball on the Packer 13, first down. McAfee slid off left end, bumped past Lou Brock, evaded Hutson and crossed the goal line standing up for the touchdown which gave the Bears their final lead. Joe Stydahar kicked the extra point, and the score was 22 to 17. From there on it was a dogfight, the teams slugging it out until the finish, with the Packers holding an advantage in ground gaining, but the Bears protecting their lead. Near the end of the third period a magnificent juggling catch of Isbell's long forward pass by Carl Mulleneaux on the Bear 40 ate up 56 yards in one play, and as the period ended the Packers were pounding away on the Chicago 12-yard line, first down. Here the Packers abandoned the pass game which had proved so successful, and in two line bucks gained as many yards. Isbell's third down forward pass to Hutson in the end zone was knocked down by Bob Swisher, and on fourth down all the receivers were covered, Isbell being chased back and smothered on the Chicago 31-yard line by a flock of Bears. Let it be inserted here that the protection given Packer passers all afternoon was little short of miserable. Almost every time Isbell, Tony Canadeo or Van Every tried to pass, they had the responsibility of keeping away from the rushing Bears strictly to themselves. Rarely did a Packer aerialist have time to spot his receiver and take careful aim, and because the Packer blockers could not hold out the burly attackers, the passers took a terrible physical beating. The Bears, as usual, were extremely rough and great ball stealers. The Packers were charged with four fumbles, and better than half of them had the impetus of clawing tacklers in orange uniforms. As had been mentioned before, there's no law against that; it was the Packers' business to hang onto the ball. The chief defensive problem the Packers faced was the brute strength of the Bear ball carriers and blockers. Time and again a Packer lineman would follow his assignment perfectly and dive against his man, only to be knocked spinning by the depth charge moving ahead of the man with the freight. Still, Green Bay might have won, and in fact came very close to winning, leaving the outcome of the November return meeting between the teams very much up in the air. The early few minutes of the game saw the Bears carry the assault into Packer territory, the drive reaching close enough for an abortive field goal attempt by Lee Artoe. Alert forward pass defense and fighting line play were instrumental in checking the advance, which became dangerous enough. After Green Bay's first slash at the line failed to produce a first down, Hinkle punted past midfield, George McAfee accepting a fair catch on the Bears' 43-yard line.
OSMANSKI GOES THROUGH
In a bruising punch at the strong side Bill Osmanski was through for eight yards, Ray Nolting adding one at center and Osmanski hit right tackle for three yards and a first down on the Packer 45. Sid Luckman lateraled to Ray Nolting, who stepped fast through the left side of the Green Bay line and raced deep into Packer territory before Buckets Goldenberg halted him on the Green Bay 17. This wasn't as bad as it might have been, because the Bears were tagged with a 15-yard penalty for pushing, which set them back to the 32. They didn't get any closer. Luckman lateraled to McAfee to the right for no gain, Hinkle knocking down the receiver and Lee McLaughlin tackling him. McAfee tried to circle his left end, but Ray Riddick slammed into him hard and he was nailed by Larry Buhler and Charley Brock for a loss of six yards. Goldenberg and Tony Canadeo covered Nowaskey and Luckman's pass into the right flat zone fell incomplete. With Luckman holding the ball 45 yards from the Packer goal, Lee Artoe tried a field goal, but the ball carried to the left and the first Chicago threat faded. The Packers got nowhere with their next attempt, the heavy Chicago line keeping the Green Bay running attack under control, and Hinkle's punt was downed by Harry Jacunski on the Bears' 27-yard line. Brilliant defensive work by Bill Lee, Larry Buhler and Hinkle kept the Bruins bottled up and McAfee punted back, getting off a high, towering boot which landed in Joe Laws' arms on the Green Bay 35. The Bears had their first scoring chance when Hinkle, rushed off his feet, booted a high punt that the Bears took on the Packer 39. The Packers hurled back the attackers twice, Charley Brock and Buhler spilling Osmanski for a 1-yard loss and Luckman's lateral to Nolting missing fire, Canadeo falling on the receiver four yards behind the Bear scrimmage line. All the effort was wasted, though, for on the next play McAfee and Kavanaugh stuck together their long forward pass for the first Bear touchdown.
RIDDICK DOWNS PUNT
Leading 6 to 0, the Bears kicked off, and the Packers spent the final minute of the first period vainly trying to make a first down, Herman Rohrig delivering a long punt deep into Bear country on the last play of the quarter, Riddick downing the punt on the Chicago 24. A 22-yard gallop by Osmanski, who waded through the scrimmage line, broke to his right, shook off Isbell and was tackled finally by Eddie Jankowski, brought the ball to the Green Bay 25-yard line. A fighting defensive stand sparked by Jankowski and George Svendsen blocked a further advance, and Snyder kicked his first field goal, making the score 9 to 0. An interception of Isbell's long pass by McLean and a coffin corner punt by Young Bussey put the Packers back on their own 6-yard line halfway through the second period. They worked out for one first down, but Hinkle finally had to punt, and he sent the ball out of bounds on the Bear 40.
MARCH TO TOUCHDOWN
McLean, Standlee and Swisher, operating behind a potent interference, which blocked the Packers off their feet, were the spearheads of a 60-yard touchdown march that ended as McLean darted over from the 13-yard line. This gave the Bears their 15 to 0 lead. Then the Packers opened up, starting from their own 20-yard line. Isbell's forward pass to Lou Brock over the right side of the line netted five yards, and another, Isbell to Craig, added 12 for a first down on the Green Bay 37. Isbell fired to Hutson over left for nine yards, and flipped a shot toss over right to the same player for four yards and a first down at midfield. Isbell was rushed off his brogans and the ball sailed wildly into the air, Charley Brock receiving it illegally, but the Bears were offside on the play and drew a 5-yard penalty. Ed Frutig raced to his right and almost got his hooks on Isbell's pass, Bussey breaking it up. Isbell's bullet pass over left to Hutson was dropped by the latter. Isbell kept shooting. His long toss to Frutig down the alley was just too far, Frutig not running hard enough on the play, but the next toss, snatched by Hutson on the 40, saw the Packer end get away on a slippery run down the sidelines. McLean dove at him on the 20, but Frutig spanked him into the stands and Hutson completed the dash for a touchdown, adding the extra point to make the score 15-7. The Packers got in position for Hinkle's field goal as related previously, and left the field only five points in arrears. A hard ground attack which shoved the Bears back against the fences was revealed as the Packers came out for the second half. They started from the Green Bay 40-yard line, with Hinkle smashing right tackle for three yards, and Lou Brock fighting through center for 14 yards and a first down on the Chicago 43. Isbell dove through right tackle, was knocked down, got up and gained seven yards, after which Hinkle powered through left tackle for five more and a first down on the 31. Isbell's forward pass over left was nailed by Hutson on the 17-yard line, Don being spilled on the 15 to complete a 16-yard gain for another first down. After the Bears took time out to talk it over Hinkle rode right end for eight yards, the play being recalled and the Bruins penalized to the 10-yard stripe for holding. This made it easy, and in two plays Hinkle crashed over for the touchdown, Hutson adding the point to give the Packers their temporary lead. We've already told how the Bears got it right back again. Trailing 22-17, the Packers took the next kickoff, and promptly got into another spot as Isbell's forward pass, intended for Larry Craig, was intercepted by Osmanski on the Green Bay 34-yard line. Osmanski found a big hole at right guard and roared through for 14 yards, but the play was recalled and the Bears given a 5-yard penalty. Two plays later Craig knocked one of Luckman's eternal laterals into the air and fell on the ball on the Chicago 47. He kept on going to the goal line for an apparent touchdown, but the run wasn't allowed. That was too bad, for on the next play Jankowski fumbled, Bulldog Turner recovering for the Bears on the Chicago 47. Osmanski made it first down on a 11-yard sprint before Mulleneaux and Isbell hauled him down, but the next three plays were stopped by the defensive work of Goldenberg, Ray and Bill Kuusisto. From the 44-yard line, with Luckman holding the ball, Artoe tried a field goal, but Mulleneaux came in fast and the kick carried off to the right of the posts.
DOWN IN BEAR COUNTRY
On the very next play Isbell and Mulleneaux stuck together their great forward pass completion for 56 yards, and four plays later, as the period ended, the Packers were on the Bears' 12-yard stripe. They lost the ball on downs and the Bears, hindered by a 15-yard penalty, were forced to punt. McAfee's hurried boot going out of bounds on the Chicago 43-yard line. Hinkle and Uram hit the line for five yards, and a short Van Every to Uram pass netted six yards for a first down on the Bears' 32. After this, the Bear line couldn't be dented. Uram was halted at right tackle, Hinkle gained a scant yard at left tackle, and Canadeo, circling right end for a good gain, lost the ball as tackling Bears clawed it from his hands on the 21-yard line. Back came the Bruins, using fullback Norm Standlee as spearhead. They made one first down, then made a second, crossing midfield and moving into Green Bay territory. Finally Swisher wormed through for a big gain but fumbled, Riddick recovering for Green Bay on the Packer 16-yard line.
RECOVERS FOR BEARS
Two plays later Isbell, stumbling through center all alone, fumbled as he was hit and Ray Bray recovered for the Bears on the Packer 30, a miserable break at the very time the Packers needed all their luck with them. Line plays failed to produce a first down, and on fourth down Snyder kicked the game-clinching field goal from the 34-yard line, boosting the score to 25-17. On the next series of downs Isbell, chased back by a horde of Bears, flung a forward pass which Hinkle caught and brought to the Bears' 41-yard line to complete a gain of 28 yards. Isbell fired another aerial to Mulleneaux for 18 yards and a first down on the Chicago 23. Interference was ruled on Danny Fortmann as Hutson couldn't reach Isbell's pass near the goal line, and there was the Packers, first down and goal to go on the 7-yard stripe. Time was running too short. Isbell's forward pass over the left side of the line almost was touched by Hutson, but McLean slapped it down, and on another attempted pass Isbell found no receivers open, running instead and gaining two yards. On the last play of the game Isbell passed over center to Mulleneaux, Fortmann intercepting the ball for the Bears as the final gun barked.

PACKERS STILL ARE IN THICK OF NATIONAL LEAGUE FIGHT
SEPT 30 (Green Bay) - Forget about the setback and get primed for the game with the Chicago Cardinals at Milwaukee Sunday, was the gist of Coach Curly Lambeau's instructions to the Green Bay Packers following their 25 to 17 defeat by the Chicago Bears here last Sunday. The coach, and the players as well, are not taking the Bear trimming lightly, but they are making it definitely known that they are not yet beaten in the NFL race. Although they want most to turn back the Bears when they meet them in their second game of the season, in Chicago Nov. 2, the Packers are pointing for one game at a time. This week it is the Chicago Cardinals...BEARS HAVE ADVANTAGE: Lambeau and the squad are not offering any excuses, but they are well aware that the Bears had the advantage last Sunday. It was the first league game for the Bears, while the well-scouted Packers were playing their third. In addition, the Bears were isolated for two full weeks at Delafield, where they could do their training unmolested. The Packers have come a long way since they started training, but they have not reached their peak. There is reason to believe, according to reports of scouts, that the Bears won't get much stronger. Young players on the Packer roster are improving each week. Green Bay came out of the Bear scrap considerably battered, but none of the injuries should keep a player out of action. There are numerous face bruises and general abrasions that are being given attention...WARD OFF LETDOWN: One of Lambeau's chief tasks this week is to drill the team to avoid the letdowns that have occurred right after a successful touchdown drive. The Packer squad spent some time today studying motion pictures from Sunday's game. This is a regular procedure, and invariably reveals weaknesses and strong points of play.
KENOSHA POSTPONES GAME WITH COLUMBUS
SEPT 30 (Kenosha) - Because of rain and cold weather, the football game scheduled here tonight between the Columbus Bullies, American league champions, and the Kenosha Cardinals was postponed today until tomorrow night. Game time will be at 8 p.m. Two brothers will oppose one another at center in an unusual feature - Frank Padjen, who holds down the center of the line for Kenosha, and his brother, Nick, center for Columbus.
DOUBT ABOUT BEARS NOW PLAIN AWE; PACKERS BLAME FUMBLES FOR DEFEAT
SEPT 30 (Milwaukee Journal) - The two best football teams in the National league got together at Green Bay Sunday afternoon and the better of the two, the Bears, won out. If there ever was any doubt about this year's Bears, it does not exist any more. What was written once before about them, as they prepared for their game with the college all-stars, can be repeated now: They won't lose a game unless they beat themselves. They can get cocky, they can loaf - and they can lose. If they stay mean, though, they are not going to bow to anybody and that goes for the second best team in the league, too, in the return game in Chicago November 2. The terrific explosion which the enraged Bears set off after the Packers, with passes, had taken the lead, 17-15, Sunday, tips you off on the potentialities of this team. They took the kickoff, which McAfee returned 51 yards to Green Bay's 49, and scored in three plays. Osmanski first picked up 23 yards through center, carrying half the Packers with him; Nolting added 13, scattering Packers right and left, and McAfee spun around right end for the touchdown, leaving Packers sprawled all over in his wake. Here was power at its peak. The individual statistics give you a clear cut picture of how these Bears roared behind their hard charging line - McLean 35 yards in three plays for an average of 11.7 yards a play; Osmanski, 80 yards on nine for an average of nine yards; Swisher 24 yards on three for an average of 5.1; Nolting, 37 in six for an average of 62. Much is sometimes made of the "T" in this devastating attack of the Bears. Actually, of course, it is not the "T" at all or at least not nearly as much the "T" as its devotees would have you believe. The personnel of the Bears, line and backfield both, would look tremendous in any system. Osmanski, Standlee, Luckman, whose ball handling and faking were superb, Stydahar, Fortman, Turner, Artoe, Nowaskey - where do they come any better? It was naturally a glum bunch of Packers who reviewed the game Monday and started to prepare for the battle with the Cardinals at State Fair park Sunday. They thought they were going to win. Even after the game, and with due allowance for the tremendous punch the Bears packed, they felt they might have won. The Packers point especially to the fumbles and missed signals which several times stopped them in the second half, and they have a cast, although there is no telling what the Bears, too, might have done had they found themselves behind. On one occasion, with the ball on Chicago's 12, first down, the Packers muffed three signals, bawling up all plays and finally handing the ball over to the Bears on downs on the 31. On another occasion, Tony Canadeo, after grinding out a first down on the 21, fumbled when tackled and Kolman recovered. And on a third occasion, with the ball in midfield on first down, Jankowski fumbled and Turner recovered. Only briefly did the running game show advantageously enough to be of any support to the passing game. Early in the third quarter, the boys started to roll. On runs and passes, mostly runs, they marched 60 yards for their second touchdown. The rest of the time, they had to depend on passes almost alone. All told, they gained only 77 yards rushing. Isbell, despite a bad muscle in his leg, did a fine job on his throwing end of the pass attack. He was frequently hurried, but only once did he fail to get the ball away. The record of 14 completions out of 28 passes speaks pretty well for itself. Through all the gloom, though, Lambeau retained his confidence. He had ideas of his own about the game. "We aren't out of this thing yet," he said. "We get another crack at them in Chicago, and only if they lick us there, will I concede they have a better team. Everything was in their favor Sunday. They had had two weeks work at Delafield and were as fresh as they could be. We had had a weeks' work. They were really at their peak. We weren't. We lost about 200 yards because of mistakes, they hardly lost any. Sure they have a great club. We're just about ready to concede them about 17 points anytime we play them, but we should still be able to outscore them. You know, even as the game was played, I'm not so sure we would not have won, if, after we had taken the lead, 17-15, Hinkle's kickoff had sailed well into the end zone so McAfee could not have returned it as he did. If the Bears had got the ball on their own 20 instead of on our own 49, from where they scored right away, it might have been a different game. No sir, we're not through yet by any means. You'll see a different Packer team, and a different result, at Chicago November 2." Well, maybe so. Last Sunday, though, there was no question which was the better team.
HINKLE TOPS PRO SCORING
SEPT 30 (Chicago) - Thirty year old Clark Hinkle, who
almost retired from pro football this season, is the leading
scorer of the National league at this early date. The Green
Bay star is in his tenth year as a pro, but he still can run
like a sophomore. Hinkle put together two touchdowns, two field goals and a point after to give him a total of 19 points in three games. Close behind is Don Hutson, his teammate who was the league's individual high scorer a year ago.
FORGET BEARS, LAMBEAU TELLS PACKER GRIDDERS
SEPT 30 (Green Bay) - Forget about Chicago Bears until November 2, is the instructions handed Packer players by their mentor, Curly Lambeau, as the Green Bay squad began preparations for a meeting with the Chicago Cardinals at Milwaukee next Sunday. Although bearing scars of the 25-17 defeat suffered at the hands of the Bears, none of the Packers was injured seriously. Of chief concern to Lambeau is the elimination of the letdown invariably follows a successful drive.
CARDINALS' TURN NOW TO TACKLE THOSE PACKERS
SEPT 30 (Chicago) - One Chicago football team which is through with the Green Bay Packers, temporarily at least, rested yesterday and will do the same today. This one would be the champion Bears. The other one, the Cardinals, got down to work yesterday preparing for Sunday's meeting in Milwaukee with these same Packers. Bob Synder, quarterback who kicked 
two important field goals in the Bears' 25 to 17 triumph
at Green Bay, and halfback Ray Nolting put their right
shoulders under an X-ray machine yesterday. But the
pictures showed neither was suffering from anything 
more than bone bruises...NOLTING'S BIGGEST THRILL:
Nolting said he had his biggest thrill in football when the
Bears, trailing 17 to 15, took the kickoff and on three
plays scored a touchdown against the Packers Sunday.
"After Green Bay kicked off, I yelled for the ball," said
Nolting. "But I saw something flash near me. It was
George McAfee taking the ball. I'm glad he caught it."
McAfee took the kickoff on his goal line and ran it back
fifty-one yards. Then Bill Osmanski, Nolting and McAfee
took the ball over for a touchdown on three line plays...
BEARS HAVE WON 11 IN A ROW: The Bears will
report at Soldiers' field at 9:30 o'clock tomorrow morning
to prepare for Sunday's game in Cleveland with the 
Rams. A check reveals the champions have an 11 game
winning streak. This includes victories over the Rams,
Cardinals, Redskins and National league All-Stars last
year. This year they have beaten Kenosha, the National
College All-Stars, New York Giants, Brooklyn Dodgers,
New England All-Stars, Newark and the Packers.
PACKER NOTES
OCT 1 (Milwaukee Sentinel) - Some costly defensive
slips have placed the Green Bay Packers behind the
eight ball (and the Chicago Bears) in this year's NFL
battle for honors in the Western division of the circuit's
flag chase. But the more one rehashes, replays and
gets all the ifs, buts and ands out of that epic struggle
of last Sunday the more one realizes that Coach Curly
Lambeau's lads did a pretty fair job of it, everything
considered, and should by no means be counted out of
title contention. There's that matter of the return game
in Chicago on November 2. THAT game probably will
decide the Western crown and anything can happen
then - and probably will. Getting right down to the crux of the matter every one must admit the Bays did a pretty fair job of holding their own last Sunday although beaten 25 to 17...BAYS WILL IMPROVE: And, attempting to gaze into the future, a Packer booster cannot help but see one thing: Improvement, both offensively and defensively, on the part of the Bays. Very little improvement on the part of the Bears. (It's hard to improve upon perfection and that is just about what George Halas had on the field Sunday.) The Packers should improve considerably because important newcomers, several of whom contributed glaring errors Sunday, should know now the Bears aren't so all-fired powerful they can't be stopped and can't be gained against. Outstanding examples of costly mistakes Sunday are: 1. Failure of Tony Canadeo and Joe Laws to credit George McAfee with enough pitching powers to throw the first long touchdown pass to Kavanaugh. (I do not remember the offensive setup at the play's inception, do not know whose man Kavanaugh rightly was, but DO KNOW that carelessness allowed the big Bear end to get behind the defenders.) 2. Failure of Packer linemen, especially some guards, to chuck straight through, take care of their own territory and thus prevent those quick opening shots that raised havoc with Bay hopes of victory. All too often the Bay guards were caught leaning or sliding by the Bears' fakes, became setup targets for some fine angle blocks and only recovered in time to see the Bears' backs ankling up field.
3. Fumbling was doubly costly to Packer victory hopes. On one occasion, Canadeo fumbled on the Bears' 30 after a nice gallop for a first down. On another occasion, Cec Isbell fumbled deep in Bay territory, a fumble that gave the Bears position for Snyder to make the field goal that put the Halasmen on Easy street with eight points to work with instead of five points. That this slip was costly was proven a few minutes later when the Bays, bounding back with the courage and skill that argues well for the future, were knocking at the Bears' goal. With an excellent scoring chance and only a five point lead to overcome, the Bays would have been doubly vicious, the Bears doubly jittery.
4. Failure of the Bays to get downfield and smash things up on kickoffs. This was vital on McAfee's return to the Bay 49 after the Packers had taken a 17 to 15 lead. Three plays later, this error, coupled with some sliding linemen who were inclined to follow the fakes out, resulted in a Chicago touchdown...FAKING TURNED TRICK: Back of all the errors, however, there remains one inescapable conclusion. The Bears actually have one of the finest ground attacks ever conceived. The faking of the backs, the clever ball handling of the quarterbacks and the explosive way the backs break for the quickies is a thing of beauty even though this corner would like to blackjack 'em for doing it against the Bays. Watching the Bears fake one wonders why every college and prep coach in the vicinity doesn't have his players on hand to see a club actually carry out the fakes. There's no half hearted fakes and loafing. The backs who fake cover up and run harder than if they had the ball. Their fakes, backed by Sid Luckman's Houdini handling, fake passes and side and back flips, are the traps that catch the unwary and the traps that caught some of the Bay linemen (secondary, too, for that manner) often enough to provide the victory margin.
PACKERS ARE DRILLING ON OFFENSIVE TIMING
OCT 1 (Green Bay) - Three hours of intensive drill stressing timing of offense made a heavy workout today for the Green Bay Packers, scheduled for a scrap with the Chicago Cardinals in Milwaukee at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon. Timing was off in last Sunday's game here with the Chicago Bears, when the Packers were whipped by 25 to 17. Blocking was ineffective, especially at several crucial moments when a few more yards would have brought a first down. Coach Curly Lambeau hoped to remedy the timing difficulties in today's practice. As an example of what he meant, he recalled an instance in last Sunday's game late in the fourth quarter when the Packers had the ball on the 12-yard line. The next three plays went bad, and the touchdown threat fizzled...LIONS ARE STRONGER: The Packer board of strategy has gone over a thorough report from the scouts at last Sunday's game between the Detroit Lions and Cardinals. This game, which ended in a 14-all deadlock, showed both teams to be much stronger than they were rated a week ago. Detroit was crushed by 23 to 0 when it played the Packers in the opening tilt of the NFL here Sept. 14, but the scouts informed Coach Lambeau that the Lions have improved vastly since that date. On this basis the Cardinals are not to be passed over lightly. Lambeau is not inclined to class the Bears as a team of supermen, unbeatable by anything the rest of the league is able to devise. He gives them credit for playing great ball, but insists that the Packers might have won if they had committed fewer mistakes...SHOW ILLEGAL PLAYS: Motion pictures from Sunday's game not only showed up the Packer lapses, but they also revealed numerous instances of illegal action by the Bears, Lambeau asserted. Their T formation, he stated, provided them with opportunities for illegitimate roughness - opportunities which they did not always pass by. As a squad, the Packers are in fine condition. They came out of Sunday's affair with the Bears rather badly bruised, but the injuries appeared to be superficial. Faces, particularly, were generally well battered. Cecil Isbell, who was off form for over a week, has entirely recovered, it is reported. He gave a good account of himself last Sunday, but can do even better when he is in top form. Coach Jimmy Conzelman of the Chicago Cardinals is rebuilding his club, and reports indicate that he is showing progress. Last year the club had anything but a versatile attack, the reason being the absence of good backfield material to work with. This year things are different...SOME GOOD PROSPECTS: Conzelman has come up with some good prospects in Ray Mallouf, an outstanding passer; Bob Morrow, a plunging fullback who seems to have just what it takes; Johnny Martin, another fullback, and Johnny Clement, a halfback. Bill Daddio, an end who won All-American fame at Pittsburgh university, is with the Cardinals this season after coaching two years at his alma mater. John Higgins, of Trinity U, a fighting guard, and Roy Apolskis, a Marquette alumnus who may develop into one of the outstanding centers in the game, also are on the roster. These players, added to such backs as Marshall Goldberg, John Hall, Bert Johnson, Buddy Parker, Hugh McCullough, Lou Zontini and Milt Popovich should result in a much more diversified offense for the Cardinals this season.
KENOSHA CARDS TANGLE WITH BULLIES TONIGHT
OCT 1 (Kenosha) - The Kenosha Cardinals, independent professional football team which has met five National league elevens, will take on the Columbus Bullies, of the American league, in an exhibition game here tonight. The game was scheduled for Tuesday night, but was postponed because of rain and cold.
MILWAUKEE CHIEFS SIGN SPLINTER, PLATTEVILLE
OCT 1 (Milwaukee) - Coach Tiny Cahoon, of the Milwaukee Chiefs, American League professional football team, announced today the signing of Francis Splinter, Platteville Teachers halfback, and the sale to Buffalo of Mac McLain, a quarterback, and Bud Hughes, and end. The Chiefs will play an exhibition game next Sunday. The following weekend they travel to Columbus for a game with the Bullies. Columbus beat the Chiefs in the first league game here.
2 EX-PACKERS WILL FACE OLD MATES SUNDAY
OCT 1 (Chicago) - Dick Evans and Frank Balazs, a couple of former Iowa stars who came in to the NFL via Green Bay, will be on the same field Sunday with the Packers, but on the opposite bench. The two are the newest items in the Chicago Cardinals' rebuilding program, and as yet have hardly functioned. Evans, an end, played four minutes in last Saturday's 14 to 14 tie with the Detroit Lions. Balazs, a fullback, has been dividing his time between learning Jim Conzelman's system of play and taking treatments for a back injury suffered before he joined the south siders. Balazs will be ready to make his debut Sunday. Improved though the Cards may be, it would be folly to even suggest they figure to beat the Packers. It will be strictly an upset if they win the game which will be played at the state fair grounds in West Allis, a Milwaukee suburb...GIVE SELVES A CHANCE: The Chicagoans are hoping to catch the Packers off their game from the effect of Sunday's defeat by the Bears, but they aren't taking such a possibility for granted. Yesterday, for instance, the team worked out in a steady rain, and absorbed a few new plays. Rival teams go through a double preparation from the Packers - this being against them as a unit and against Don Hutson individually. Again, the Cardinals practiced special maneuvers calculated to stop, or at least, minimize the damage the pass catching wizards can wreak. If the Cards could make the Packers their first victims of the year a nice setup would be virtually assured for a week from Sunday when the two Chicago teams meet in Wrigley field. The Bears play Cleveland Sunday in the Ohio town and if victorious would be defending the league lead against the Cards.
PACKERS PLAY CARDINALS
OCT 4 (Green Bay) - A possible - but improbable - 
letdown in spirits was the only real worry of Coach Curly
Lambeau as he keyed the Green Bay Packers for the
NFL battle at State fair park in Milwaukee on Sunday
afternoon against the Chicago Cardinals. Game time is
2 o'clock. The squad was in excellent shape following a
thorough inspection. All players were in the right mood
for battle, and Lambeau believes that if they continue
feeling that way, the Cardinals will find it exceedingly
difficult to beat them. What has helped most in building
team morale was the 25 to 17 defeat that the Chicago
Bears inflicted on the Packers last Sunday. Title hopes
are still high, but the players realize that it will be a 
tough grind to the finish. The Packers were scheduled
to board the Milwaukee road Chippewa at 5:35 this
evening. They will return to Green Bay by 8:30 Sunday
evening. Lambeau stated that he probably will start a
combination of newcomers and veterans in the backfield.
Larry Buhler, a three-year veteran, is likely to be at the
blocking back, with Joe Laws and Clarke Hinkle, with
18 years of service between them, at wingback and
fullback. Tony Canadeo, a first-year man who made an
impressive start, will be the tailback...EXPECT MUCH
PASSING: Fans are likely to see considerable passing
in this game. Cecil Isbell, who has fully recovered from
a leg injury, will throw them for Green Bay, while Ray
Mallouf, former Southern Methodist star, will do most of
the tossing for Coach Jimmy Conzelman's Cardinals.
Conzelman has shifted Marshall Goldberg, former Pitt
university All-America halfback, to the fullback position.
This, Lambeau pointed out, will giver the Cardinals full
advantage of Goldberg's great running ability. He will
probably be the target for most of Mallouf's passes. 
Lambeau is of the opinion that this is the toughest 
Chicago Cardinal team in three years. Conzelman has
been making wholesale changes in an effort to build up
a potent squad. Last Sunday, in tying the Detroit Lions
by 14-all, the Cardinals showed the makings, and they
probably will be stronger this Sunday...PACKERS WITH
CARDS: Frank Balazs and Dick Evans, former Packers,
are now with the Cardinals, and this shapes up as a
danger point. They naturally are thoroughly familiar with
the Packers' strategy. Charlie Schultz, Packer tackle,
fractured his nose in practice this week, but he will be
available for action. A special head guard has been
obtained for him, and the injury should be no handicap.
George Paskvan saw no action against the Chicago
Bears last Sunday because he, like Isbell, had a pulled
leg muscle. In this week's workouts he was carrying his
end admirably, and he, too, will be in the lineup...
MULLENEAUX IS BETTER: Another injured Packer, 
Carl Mulleneaux, also has recovered. Mulleneaux was
knocked out in a practice session Wednesday. Coach
Lambeau believed that this game will show quite
conclusively just what the Packers have this year. If 
they defeat the Cardinals by a good score, it should
mean that the outlook for future games is fairly bright.
If they lose, it will mean many sleepless nights and hard work. A good crowd is expected if the weather is favorable. Many football fans who were in Madison today for the game against Marquette University are planning to stay over in Milwaukee for a full weekend. Numerous Green Bay followers have planned trips to Milwaukee.
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORTS
OCT 4 (Green Bay) - The Packers are odd-on favorites to win over the Chicago Cardinals at Milwaukee Sunday, but be prepared for any eventuality. The Cardinals are vastly improved, and Coach Jimmy Conzelman is nobody's fool. He has pointed his team for this game. In every way (including financially) an upset over Green bay would give Charlie Bidwill's team its biggest boost in years...Before leaving for Milwaukee today, Coach E.L. Lambeau said, "We expect to face the best Cardinal team that anyone has looked at in three years. Conzelman has a good line and a dangerous attack. Don't be misled by Cleveland's win over the Cardinals, or by the tie with Detroit last week. The team is coming along fast, and those two first games have served to make the Cardinals psychologically tough for us. Our reports from Chicago are that the players are in the highest of spirits." Phil Handler and Chile Walsh, Conzeman's assistant coaches, have been camping on the City stadium doorstep eve since the season started. They have scouted plays and players; charted Green Bay strength and weaknesses. It is preparation of this kind that makes the Chicago Bears the great team they are. For weeks before they came to Green Bay, George Halas, Hunk Anderson and Luke Johnsos pondered over their dope on the Packers. I won't remind you of the result. The Cardinals have stepped up considerably since factionalism ruined the teams coaches by Milan Creighton. Ernie Nevers took one year's stab at it, and moved out. Conzelman took over, and started cleaning house. Now, only five players who were on the team when he assumed control over two years ago still are on the roster. Sure, the Packers should win. They must win if they are to continue in the role of championship contender. Despite the Packer one-sided routs of Detroit and Cleveland, there no longer are any pushovers in the National league. If the Bears are defeated (by anyone other than the Packers), it probably will be by some little regarded foes who will be taken too lightly. Now, with that off my chest, I'll take the Packers by two touchdowns.
MILWAUKEE CHIEFS' TILT WITH KENOSHA CALLED
OCT 4 (Kenosha) - A scheduled football game between the Milwaukee Chiefs of the American league and the unattached Kenosha Cardinals for Tuesday night has been cancelled. This action was taken to allow the Chiefs to prepare for their league encounter with Columbus at Columbus Oct. 12.
BEARS EXPECT A VICTORY; CARDS FEAR THE WORST
OCT 4 (Chicago) - One Chicago professional football team heads east today toward what looks like one of those sure thing victories, while the other moves up the north shore to what just as certainly appears an inevitable defeat. But football being what it is, these two possibilities are not guaranteed. The Bears, defending champions of the National league, will leave at noon for Cleveland to go up against the Rams tomorrow afternoon in the Municipal stadium, where citizens of the Ohio metropolis confidently thought last spring they would be seeing World Series baseball at this time..CARDS BATTLE PACKERS: The Cardinals, who have been working like beavers all season, will take their gridiron paraphernalia to Milwaukee this afternoon. Tomorrow they will move out to State Fair park in suburban West Allis to be confronted by the Green Bay Packers, who surely will be in a surly mood after their 25 to 17 defeat last week by the Bears before the home folks. Owner-Coach George Halas of the Bears managed to put a frantic note in his voice yesterday as he shrank from the thought of what may happen to his champions in the big stadium just off Lake Erie. "We practiced right through the rain," said Halas. "You know we're up against the roughest, toughest line in the league. And don't forget, either, that Cleveland hasn't played a game for two weeks. It has been pointing for us ever since the Packers knocked the Rams off in Milwaukee. In fact, all the teams will be laying for us this season."...SO HE'S WORRIED, EH?: The big Bear is so worried he is starting two freshmen and others who were No. 2 men last year at their positions. Hugh Gallarneau will be at right half and Norman Standlee at fullback. Ed Kolman will start at right tackle instead of Joe Stydahar. Bob Nowaskey will be at left end and Ed Siegal at right end. All of the Bears except Hampton Pool, the big blond end from Stanford, will be in uniform. Pool is under orders to keep off his feet and give torn ligaments in a chance to mend. He was hurt in the exhibition game with the New York Giants last month. The Cardinals, too, paid little attention to the raindrops yesterday as they squeezed in every possible minute for their big test. If they are beaten by the Packers, it will not be because of lack of preparation, physically or mentally. Coach Jim Conzelman and his associated have held nightly squad meetings. Yesterday they continued working on ways to keep Don Hutson separated from the flying football. The peerless pass catcher of the Packers hasn't had a really big day this season and the Cards want to be sure he doesn't break out against them...HALL IS GAME CAPTAIN: Conzelman designated Johnny Hall, the fleet halfback from Texas Christian, as his No. 1 game captain. Frank Huffman, guard, will be captain when Hall is out of the game. One of the bright spots for the Cardinals is Marshall Goldberg's continued improvement.
CONZELMAN SHIFTS GOLDBERG
OCT 4 (Chicago) - Coach Jimmy Conzelman of the Chicago Cardinals will have Marshall Goldberg, Pitt's former all-American halfback, in a new role here Sunday when the Cards tackle the Green Bay Packers at State Fair park in a NFL game. "Marsh", one of the game's greatest runners, has been shifted to fullback. There his running, spinning and other ball-lugging abilities will fit better into the Card attack which has Ray Mallouf, former Southern Methodist pass wizard, in the key left halfback post. Ray's passing ability makes him far superior to Marsh at that post, but the shifting of the former Panther to fullback still utilitizes all of Marsh's ball carrying talents. The Cards, Conzelman says, are 30 percent stronger than a year ago. He attributes his club's slow start this fall, in which a tie and defeat were put on the record, to the late training start many of his players got. Only of late, after the players had opportunity to drill together, have the Cards acquired the polish and finesse the pro wheel requires. In Al Barbartsky and Ed Beinor, Conzelman says, he has the best pair of tackles in the loop and Jimmy is not a bit backward in praising the defensive play of Ray Apolskis, former Marquette center.
BEARS SEEK 12TH IN ROW TODAY AGAINST RAMS - CARDS GO TO MILWAUKEE TO PLAY PACKERS
OCT 5 (Chicago) - While the Chicago Bears are trying to keep alive an 11 game winning streak this afternoon, their civic rivals, the Cardinals, will be modestly attempting to start one. If both are successful, the home fans won't like it, because the Bears and Cards have invaders' roles today. It is the turn of the Cleveland Rams to see if this Bear wonder team, juggernaut, steamroller, or whatever you may want to call it, can be stopped. Of the four western teams, the Packers were considered having the best chance. they tried it last Sunday, rushing forth with a 2 point lead after being 15 points behind. Then the pro champions left the Packers behind in the manner of a streamliner moving away from a freight train..PACKES DEAL RAMS FIRST LOSS: These same Packers dealt the Rams their first defeat after the latter had been up there alone at the top of the NFL standings with victories over the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cardinals. After today's game the Bears will return to Chicago for a solid six week stand, which will include another battle with the Packers, and a game with Washington, eastern champions. As for the Cardinals, they will be trying against odds in State Fair park in Milwaukee against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers know that their only chance in the Western division is to win the four games coming up before they invade Wrigley field on Nov. 2...CARDINALS ARE READY: Coach Jim Conzelman and his aides have readied the Cards, physically and mentally, for the Packers, hoping to catch the Wisconsin team off stride. This is the Cards' only chance. They don't have the personnel to match the Packers. Their biggest job, of course, is to keep Don Hutson and his fingers under control. Other teams have stopped Hutson, but while this one man was being held at bay the Packers have sprung loose others for the winning points.
PACKERS' HOPES HINGE ON CARDINAL GAME
OCT 5 (Milwaukee Journal) - Eager to get back into winning
stride and remain on the heels of the Chicago Bears, the
Green Bay Packers arrived in Milwaukee Saturday night for
their engagement with the Chicago Cards at State Fair park
Sunday. The game will start at 2 o'clock. The defeat last
Sunday was a bitter pill. The Packers really thought they
would win. The licking hasn't discouraged their title ambitions,
however. They want to win and remain within hailing distance
of the Bears so they can catch up with them in the return
game November 2. A week of hard work lay behind the Bays
as they arrived. Pictures of last Sunday's game showed
glaring deficiencies, particularly in faking and blocking, and on
these things Curly Lambeau pounded away all week. Charles
Schultz, veteran tackle, and Lee Mulleneaux, veteran end,
were hurt in scrimmage  Wednesday, but will be ready to play
if needed, Schultz's nose was broken and Mulleneaux pulled
a muscle. Lambeau, coming to the realization more and more
than some of his old war horses cannot pull the load they
once did, has indicated that he will give his new men as
much work as he safely can. Such boys as George Paskvan,
Tony Canadeo, Herman Rohrig, Lee McLaughlin, Ed Frutig, 
and Ernie Pannell undoubtedly will see a lot of action.
Paskvan, Canadeo and McLaughlin probably will start. Green
Bay is a 13 point favorite. The Cardinals will take the field with
what is reported the best eleven they have fielded in several
years. The team lost a close game to Cleveland, despite
outgaining the Rams, and tied Detroit, despite showing
marked superiority both in running and passing. Jimmy Conzelman, an old Milwaukee favorite in the early days of professional football here, has built soundly with such veterans as Goldberg, Daddio, McCullough, Beinor and Dewell and such new men as Ray Apolskis, formerly of Marquette, and Ray Mallouf, passing star of Southern Methodist last year.
PACKERS TO WIN BY 14 TO 21 POINTS
OCT 5 (Milwaukee Sentinel) - The Green Bay Packers to defeat the Chicago Cardinals by a 14 to 21 point margin. That's my guess as to the outcome of Sunday afternoon's NFL game between the two clubs at State Fair Park Dairy bowl. Although there are chances of a letdown after last Sunday's 25 to 17 defeat at the hands of the Bears, a letdown that might well result in a defeat at the hands of the Cards, it appears the Packers have too much class to fall victim to their own cockiness. Those who look for a Bay letdown and an upset win for the Cards point to the fact that the Cards upset the Bears last year after the Bears had trounced the Packers and are ripe to turn an upset again. In Marshall Goldberg and Ray Mallouf the Cardinals have two of the best offensive backs in the business. The shifting of Goldberg to fullback puts him in a spot where all his running wiles can be used to full advantage and leaves Mallouf, an excellent passer, available for the key left halfback post. Hugh McCullough is another outstanding back. These backs, plus a line, headed by a list of all-star tackles, Frank Ivy, former Oklahoma all-American end, and Bill Dewell, ace pass snatcher, and Marquette's former great, Ray Apolskis, at center, offer ample proof that Coach Jimmy Conzelman has the makings of a great machine this fall. Far from satisfied with the running game against the Bears, a form of attack that worked only spasmodically, Coach Curly Lambeau has drilled his men incessently on that phase of play this week. He expects to better coordinate that form of offense with the Packers' vaunted aerial game, without question the best in the country. Although bumped and bruised, the Packers came through the game with the Bears in good condition and all are in shape for Sunday's struggle. Cec Isbell, star back, was reported in better condition than he was for the Bear game in which he played the greater share with a bad leg injry. It is the Isbell to Don Hutson pass combination the Cards fear most of all - (who doesn't?) and now that Cec is in top condition once again was welcome, indeed, to the Packer followers throughout Wisconsin.
BRUISING WORKOUT CORRECTS PACKERS'
ERRORS
OCT 2 (Green Bay) - Green Bay's Packers came out of
a rough scrimmage Wednesday with some players
thoroughly battered, but Coach Curly Lambeau was
satisfied that many of the faults revealed last Sunday
against the Chicago Bears have been corrected.
Workouts almost as intensive were held today, both
morning and afternoon. The Packers play the Chicago
Cardinals in Milwaukee next Sunday afternoon, and
Lambeau is anxious to have the squad in top shape. 
From out of Chicago today came information that 
Jimmy Conzelman, coach of the Cardinals, has been
perfecting a passing attack to throw against the Bays.
Green Bay has held supremacy in the air for many
season, Conzelman states, but this is not stopping him
from coming up with something of his own. The Packer
scrimmage on Wednesday was so hard that Charlie
Schultz, veteran tackle, was knocked unconscious and
had to be carried to the dressing rooms. He recovered
quickly, however, and was back in action this morning...
MULLENEAUX ALSO HURT: Another Packer, Carl
Mulleneaux, was unable to finish the scrimmage.
Various others had to receive first aid treatment, but 
none of the casualties was believed to be anything to
worry about. The Packers definitely can hit harder than
they did against the Bears last Sunday, when they took
a 25-17 beating, Lambeau asserted after Wednesday's
scrimmage, Further tuning up will be done for the
remainder of the week, this afternoon's practice being
devoted to defense. Lambeau has leaned from the 
reports of the scouts and his own observations that the
Cardinals are stronger than last season. Added to that,
they are hungry for their first victory in the National
league this season. Cecil Isbell will be in top form to do
his passing Sunday, unless something happens in the
meanwhile. He has fully recovered from a slight injury a
few weeks ago. Wednesday he was slowed up for a
time after being hit hard on the leg, but before today's
session was over he showed no signs of having been
hurt...PASKVAN IS BACK: George Paskvan, the 
backfield recruit from the University of Wisconsin, has
shown up well this week. He strained a leg muscle in 
an earlier workout, and did not see action against the
Bears. The Packers will leave Saturday afternoon on the
Milwaukee road Chippewa. They will be back from
Milwaukee at 8:20 Sunday evening. Green Bay will be
undoubtedly well represented at Milwaukee. They are 
not yet out of the National league race by any means,
and the Cardinals are strong enough this year to even
defeat the Packers if there are lapses by the Green Bay
team. Lambeau, incidentally, is expecting the Bears to
meet defeat before long. Coach Conzelman of the
Cardinals has Ray Mallouf, a halfback, and Bill Dewell,
an end, for his passing combination which he will 
employ against the Packers. Dewell ranks second to
Hutson in National league pass catching records this
season.
TILT TO BE HOMECOMING FOR THREE WITH
CARDINALS
OCT 2 (Chicago) - Sunday afternoon's contest between
the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Cardinals in
Milwaukee is going to serve as a homecoming for three
members of the Redbirds squad. Coach Jimmy 
Conzelman of the Cards masterminded the Milwaukee
Chiefs many years ago, while center Ray Apolskis and
tackle Ray Busler were outstanding members of the
Marquette Hilltoppers in past seasons. All three are 
very important members of the current Cardinal team.
Apolskis played at Marquette last season, played in the
recent College All-Star game here in Soldiers field, and
then joined the Cardinals. Since then he worn Redbird
regalia, he plays the postgraduate game like he owns it.
Proof of his ability can be seen in the fact that he has
taken over the first string berth despite the presence of
"Handy Andy" Chisick who has had a year's experience
in the league. Busler played at Marquette in 1939...
MAKES NO PREDICTION: Conzelman is prepping his
squad daily on the University of Chicago practice field.
There's nothing in the way of predictions coming in from
the silver-haired Cards coach but all of the players are
going about the business of getting ready with a new
determination. Marshall Goldberg, Ray Mallouf, Johnny
Hall and Buddy Parker in one backfield and Johnny
Clement, Bob Morrow, Avery Monfort and Lou Zontini in another, are looking better daily. The handicap of playing without knowing signals which caused the 10 to 6 loss to Cleveland and the 14-14 tie with the Detroit Lions has worn off. All seem to know their way around without winding up in each other's hair. Against the Lions, "Mad Marshall" passed and ran like the star who won the All-America honors three years running with the Pittsburgh Panthers. It was a pass, Goldberg to Hall, for 12 yards that scored the first touchdown in the Lions game. Clement skirted his right end for four yards for the other score. Zontini added both points after...MUCH BETTER CLUB: That the Cards are a much better club than their record of one loss and a tie shows goes without saying. They should have whipped Cleveland hands down. Getting signals crossed up cost them victory. A fumble gave the Rams their field goal. The missing of a point after touchdown by the Cards ruined a chance for a tie. However, all of the mistakes are being rectified and the club has taken on a bit of polish that may spell havoc for Curly Lambeau's lads on Sunday.
PACKERS FEAR PASS BARRAGE
OCT 2 (Green Bay) - It is Jimmy Conzelman's idea to fight fire with fire, so Sunday when his Chicago Cardinals meet the Green Bay Packers at State Fair park, a battle of passes is almost certain to be waged. Out of the Chicago camp of the Cardinals has come word that Conzelman is devoting more than half the time of every workout to passes with his sophomore star, Ray Malouf, late of Southern Methodist, or the veteran Hugh McCullough of Oklahoma on the throwing end. Mallouf last season was one of the greatest college passers in a section of the country which always produces great passers. He was a member of the recent college all-star squad. On the receiving end, Conzelman has some of the finest receivers in the league, including Bill Dewell, who ranks second to Don Hutson in the season's pass catching records, and Bill Daddio, the former Pitt star, who has returned to pro ball after a year of coaching. Chicago's running attack is headed by Marshall Goldberg. Out of Green Bay, meanwhile, have come reports of intense work to get back in winning stride. Coach Curly Lambeau gave the Packers a day of rest Monday, but he has not let up in driving workouts since.
'VERY GOOD' IS LAMBEAU'S COMMENT AFTER PASS DRILL
OCT 2 (Green Bay) - The Packers' preparation for Sunday's entanglement with the Chicago Cardinals drew closer to perfection today as Curly Lambeau summarized the results of a thorough workout against Cardinal passes as "very good". "We have a great deal of respect for the passing combination composed of back, Ray Mallouf, and end, Bill Dewell," Lambeau stated. The Packer head man admission becomes apparent when it is realized that Green Bay devoted most of today's session to means of scuttling the Cardinal aerial offensive. Carl Mulleneaux, knocked unconscious in an intensive drill Wednesday, suffered no ill consequences, leaving the Green bay squad without injuries, Cec Isbell and George Paskvan, having returned to the ranks earlier in the week. The Packers will leave for Milwaukee Saturday afternoon, returning at 8:20 p.m. Sunday.
LAMBEAU STATES ALL PLAYERS IN FINE SHAPE FOR CHICAGO SQUAD
OCT 3 (Green Bay) - Cecil Isbell and George Paskvan both have recovered from their leg injuries, Coach Curly Lambeau asserted today, and will be ready for top performances when the Green Bay Packers clash with the Chicago Cardinals at State Fair park in Milwaukee Sunday afternoon. Isbell saw some action against the Chicago Bears here last Sunday, but was not in his best form. Paskvan did not even enter the fray. It was with considerable relief, then, that Lambeau found them in excellent shape during this week's
heavy workouts. With Isbell and Paskvan helping to round out the backfield, the Packer squad will be at full strength. Lambeau believes the Packers will be considerably stronger than they were against the Bears, when they were defeated by 25 to 17. Two workouts were held Thursday, with the afternoon session stressing defense. Most dangerous of the Cards, it appears, are halfback Ray Mallouf and end Bill Dewell, Coach Conzelman's new passing combination. The Packers have drilled against this duo by they also are not overlooking several other Cardinals who may prove to be exceedingly dangerous. A signal drill was held by the Packers this morning, and a rest from heavy work was prescribed for the afternoon. Further defensive drill will occupy an hour Saturday morning... LEAVE ON SATURDAY: Green Bay get out for Milwaukee at 5:35 Saturday afternoon on the Milwaukee road Chippewa. They will lave for home right after the game Sunday, arriving in Green Bay by 6:20 in the
evening. The Cardinals are fired up for this scrap,
anxious for their first NFL victory. Last Sunday they tied
the Detroit Lions, 14 to 14, and in their drills this week
they appeared to be getting stronger by the day. Coach
Lambeau insists that the Packers will be defeated by
the Cards if they fail to cash in on their opportunities.
If the Packers are in top form, they should have no
trouble...CHANCE FOR UPSET: The Chicago Bears are
playing at Cleveland Sunday afternoon. If they suffered
a letdown since beating the Packers, it would be a fine
opportunity for an upset. Lee McLaughlin and Ernie
Pannell, first-year tackles, looked good in practice for
the Packers this week. Ed Frutig, recruit end, and Tony
Canadeo, a newcomer to the backfield, also appeared 
to be in great shape. The veteran end, Carl Mulleneaux,
was knocked out in a practice session Wednesday but
he also has recovered completely.
BAY FORWARD PASSING COMBINE ON TOP IN
LEAGUE STATISTICS
OCT 3 (Chicago) - Clarence (Pug) Manders, Brooklyn
Dodgers' fullback, has taken an early lead in the race for
the ground gaining championship of the NFL, piling up
132 yards in two games, officials statistics revealed
today. The last of the athletic Manders family remaining
active in the league has averaged six yards per attempt
against Washington and Philadelphia to lead Clarke
Hinkle, the Green Bay Packers' veteran fullback, by 37
yards. Hinkle has appeared in three games. His total of
95 yards against Cleveland, Detroit and the Bears gives
him 3,276 yards gained in his professional career and
sets a new National league record. Passing honors in
first returns give the Packers the lead in both passing 
and receiving. Cecil Isbell, Green Bay halfback, has
completed 24 tosses in three games, five more than
Tuffy Thompson of Philadelphia, who has participated in
three games. Isbell's completions have gained 348
yards for the Packers and scored two touchdowns. Don
Hutson, holder of most of the league's all-time receiving
records, increased his advantage over pursuers with ten
receptions in three game for 135 yards and one touchdown. Hinkle leads scorers with two touchdowns, two field goals and an extra point for a total of 19 points, and is tied with Bob Snyder of the Bears and Ward Cuff of New York, in field goals. Each has successfully executed two placements.
JIM CONZELMAN FAVORS GAG ON SCORE REVEALING
OCT 3 (Chicago) - Coach Jim Conzelman of the Chicago Cardinals is in favor of a gag on announcements of contemporary NFL games while his team is engaged with the Green Bay Packers, whom his forces meet Sunday afternoon in West Allis, Milwaukee suburb. "We were playing the Packers in a ball game last year," recalled the man who likes to recall incidents. "And you'll have to take my word for it that we were driving for a score which would tie the game. Then it happened. Over the loudspeaker came the announcement that the Chicago Bears had lost. Well, that was our finish. The Packers came to life, stopped us cold, and in their enthusiasm added another touchdown. If the Bears lose Sunday to Cleveland I hope the Packers don't hear about it until our game is over, because they're going to be tough enough without the added tonic of knowing their big rivals have been whipped."...LIVE UP TO EXPECTATIONS: The Cards have lived up to their coaches' estimates of being stronger than last year, even though they have yet to attain a victory. They lost the opener to Cleveland, 10 to 6, then tied Detroit, 14 to 14. They're matched touchdowns with two teams which figured to be stronger. A field goal and an extra point after touchdown is their only scoring deficit in the two games. The Cards were spirited yesterday as they followed a thorough session of reviews against Green Bay plays with a 25 minute scrimmage. The two new right halfbacks, John Martin of Oklahoma and Avery Monfort of New Mexico, who started the season as Bears' rookies, have absorbed the Cards' plays. They will give veteran Johnny Hall a breathing spell, as the boy from Texas Christian has played 50 minutes in each of the two league games...WILL HAVE MORE POWER: The Cards will have more manpower Sunday. In addition to Martin and Monfort, such fellows as Frank Balazs, fullback, and Dick Evans, end, both former Packers, will be craving action. There are indications that the Cards will fight fire with fire, which in this instance means they'll throw a lot of passes. Though Ray Mallouf, rookie from Southern Methodist, is the team's passing specialist, almost anyone in the backfield is likely to let one go. The occasional passing by Marshall Goldberg continues to be quite an amazing thing, especially as the old Pitt star is completing 'em. Heretofore, he has been labeled as strictly a runner...LONG PASSES PROVE WEAKNESS: Long passes have proved to be the weakness in the Cards' defensive armor, and but for these lapses the south siders might have beaten both the Rams and the Lions. It goes without saying such a weakness Sunday against the Packers will be fatal, as this is the passingest team in football. The Cards will leave for Milwaukee tomorrow morning.
PACKERS TURN TO NEW MEN
OCT 3 (Green Bay) - Curly Lambeau has indicated in workouts here this week that the Packers will start Sunday's game with the Chicago Cardinals at State Fair park with a lineup composed largely of new men. So far, he has been rather reluctant to start them, but he has realized more and more that he cannot expect some of his veterans to carry the hod as they once did. George Paskvan will open at fullback Sunday, Canadeo at left half, McLaughlin and Bucchianeri at the guards, Ernie Pannell at one tackle and Ed Frutig at one end. Carl Mulleneaux, end; Charlie Schultz, tackle and Cecil Isbell continued to be bothered by minor injuries, but all will be ready to play Sunday if needed. Chief attention this week was devoted to the running game which, against the Bears last Sunday, was not good enough to support the pass attack. The Packers will arrive here Saturday night. Jimmy Conzelman will also arrive Saturday night.
