the unbeaten Giants...PITTSBURGH VS. REDSKINS: Second place teams in each division meet in Milwaukee, Wis., as the Brooklyn Dodgers face Green Bay. The day's schedule will be rounded out in Pittsburgh, with a meeting between the Washington Redskins and the Steelers. Developments to date have heightened the concern of coaches, who as early as last December expressed the fear that the Bears would be even better this year than they were in the march to a championship last season. Cleveland and Green Bay, the Bears' two opponents so far, have revealed the champions to be vulnerable defensively, the Packers coming from behind to score 17 points two weeks ago and the Rams making three touchdowns last Sunday. But there appears to be nothing anyone can do about their offense. It has rallied in three of its four games against league opposition this fall, coming from behind against the Giants and Brooklyn in exhibitions, and conquering Green Bay with a last period surge in its first league game. Against Cleveland the Bears did not bother to get behind, although the Rams were able to tie the score at 7 to 7 before Gallerneau, McAfee, Kavanaugh and company stepped out for four more touchdowns in the first half...BEST IN YEARS: Jimmy Conzelman has assembled the best Cardinal team in five years and on the basis of Marshall Goldberg's showing against Green Bay, figures to have considerable to say about the race before December, but anything less than a Bear victory Sunday must be catalogued as an upset. Goldberg played the finest game of his career against Green Bay, finally contributing the type of football the Cardinals and fans have been expecting from him ever since he entered the National league two years ago. Cleveland will tackle Detroit without its star halfback, Parker Hall, who suffered a shoulder injury in the Bear game Sunday, an occurrence which enhances the Lions chances of celebrating their homecoming with their first victory in four league starts. Brooklyn, defeated by a field goal in Washington last week, will be fighting to remain above the five hundred mark in Milwaukee, while the Packers seek to chalk up their fourth triumph. Pittsburgh, not thoroughly familiar with the system of its new coach, Aldo Donelli, should be better equipped for Washington tomorrow than it was for the New York Giants last Sunday, when it lost 37 to 10.
MILWAUKEE CHIEFS OFF FOR GAME WITH BULLIES
OCT 11 (Milwaukee) - The Milwaukee Chiefs were off to Columbus, Ohio, today for a return engagement with the Bullies, AFL defending champions. All Coach Ivan (Tiny) Cahoon's Chiefs were in good physical condition excepting Bronko Malesevic, former University of Wisconsin back who was weakened with a heavy cold. The Bullies won, 34 to 7, at Milwaukee earlier this season.
GRID DODGERS FACE GREEN BAY AIR BLITZ
OCT 11 (Brooklyn) - On the basis of National League statistics that battle in Milwaukee's State fair Grounds between the Dodgers and the Packers should be along the lines of aircraft vs. panzer units. The Packers have the finest aerial attack in the league - Cecil Isbell to Don Hutson. The Dodgers have the heaviest ground gainer - Pug Manders with a total of 179 yards. Famous bomber Isbell leads the league with 32 passes completed out of 61 for 408 yards and three touchdowns. Catcher Hutson has caught 15 of these for 175 yards with Lou Brock, Herman Rohrig, Carl Mulleneaux, Joe Laws and Clarke Hinkle ranking in that order behind them. In Hinkle, the Packers have a ground gainer to bid with Manders for Clarke is the runner-up to Pug in the league statistics with 136 yards. In his tenth year with the Green Bay organization he continues to flaunt Father Time and to amaze all who watch him in action....DODGER NOT ANEMIC IN AIR: The Packers depend heavily on their aerial blitz while the Dodger attack seems to have a finer balance, at least on games to date. The Brooks, however, are by no means anemic in the aerial department. The Packers' record to date is three victories and one defeat as against the Dodgers' two and one. Beaten once already, neither team can afford to lose another and still hope to be around when the honors are handed out in their respective division. And Jock Sutherland and his men well know that they never will tag the Giants if they blow this one for the Polo Grounds' crew has neither the Packers nor the Bears to contend with this season. Sutherland probably will start Bill Leckonby in the left halfback slot against the Packers, with Dean McAdams at right half; Ben Kish at quarterback and George Kracum, fullback. The line will stack with Eddie Rucinski and Schwartz, ends; Bruiser Kinard and Walter Merrill, tackles; Jim Sivell and Warren Alfson, guards, and Bud Svendsen, center.
PACKERS HYPOED FOR DODGER GAME
OCT 11 (Milwaukee) - The last time the Dodgers were out here (1939) the Packers whacked 'em, 28-0. This is a tough place to face the Green Bay gang, buoyed and hypoed as they'll be by that hometown spirit. And Jock Sutherland says, frankly, "This is the best club Curly Lambeau has had - the best Green Bay team that is, that I've ever seen." Jock and his Dodgers are backs-to-the-wall here as they face the Packers tomorrow. Brooklyn lost last Sunday in Washington because Pug Manders had a bad afternoon. They can't afford to lose two in a row or the Giants will just about be "set" as Eastern division champions. Manders, a chin-up, aggressive type of competitor, figures on a comeback here that will square him. He is the Dodgers' best ground gainer, having walloped out 179 yards. And the tackles he was missing last Sunday, as Washington backs came spinning through the line to knock him onto his pants, he vows he'll make here tomorrow. He'll have to. And Ace Parker will have to be hot if the Brooks are to win, too...HINKLE, HERBER THREATS: The Packers, of course, have a talented cast and at least one fullback to match Manders. He's Clarke Hinkle, the old Bucknell battering ram. This is "Broadway's" tenth year in the league and Sutherland has his scouts insist Hinkle never looked any better. One thorn in Brooklyn's side from years gone by is Arnie Herber. But now they have Cecil Isbell, Purdue star, who pitches to Don Hutson most of the time. Hutson, 'Bama Express, has caught 15 passes for 175 yards and it's still true that if he gets half a step on you, he's "gone". Lou Brock, another speedboy from Purdue, Herman Rohrig and the veteran Joe Laws, as well as Hinkle, are favorite Isbell targets...THREE GOOD TOSSERS: Brooklyn's aerial department shows up with Bill Leckonby, Ace Parker and Dean McAdams pitching. Perry Schwartz, the big blond end, has caught seven for 119 yards. There's no doubt that Brooklyn's future tomorrow, as well as the rest of the season in the National League, revolves around Ace Parker's stiff right ankle. If it loosens up, the Dodgers may beat anybody. If it is a handicap today, the Flock many not have much chance of beating Lambeau's great team, which knocked off Detroit and Cleveland before bowing by eight points to the Bears in a see-saw game in which scouts say Green Bay actually outplayed Chicago. The Dodgers lost to Washington after stopping Detroit and Philadelphia. This is Brooklyn's fork in the roads; which will they take - up, or down?
DODGERS HERE FOR BIG GAME
OCT 11 (Milwaukee) - Eager to get back into winning stride after their defeat at the hands of the Washington Redskins last week, 3-0, Jock Sutherland and his high powered Brooklyn Dodgers arrived here Saturday morning for their crucial game with the Green Bay Packers at State Fair park Sunday afternoon. The Packers will arrive Saturday night. The game is the high spot of a full schedule in the National league. Each has lost one game so far and must win Sunday to remain within close striking distance of the undefeated divisional leaders. The Dodgers were in fine fettle as they arrived. They planned a short workout at the scene of Sunday's game Saturday afternoon. The Packers took the final drill in Green Bay Saturday morning. Green Bay ruled 6 1/2 point favorite in the wagering. In other National league games Sunday, the Chicago Bears will meet the Chicago Cardinals at Wrigley field, the Detroit Lions will face the Cleveland Rams at Detroit, and the New York Giants will play the Philadelphia Eagles in New York.
PACKERS AND DODGERS IN IMPORTANT TILT
OCT 12 (Milwaukee) - The toughest assignment the Packers have had this season, next to the Bear game, faces them Sunday afternoon when they meet "Dem Bums" of Jock Sutherland's, the Brooklyn Dodgers, at State Fair park. It used to be that Brooklyn was something of a soft touch. A game with Brooklyn was almost like a game won. Today, however, under the masterful Sutherland, the Dodgers have taken rank with the Bears, Washington, New York and Green Bay in the exclusive upper crust of the National league. The season's hopes of both are largely wrapped up in Sunday's battle. Neither can lose and expect to remain on anything except the fringe of the championship fight. In the eastern division, the Dodgers, with two victories and one defeat, trail undefeated New York Giants by a game. In the western division, the Packers with three triumphs and one defeat, trail the undefeated Bears by a game. Whichever loses Sunday will probably drop two full games off the pace, for both the Giants in their game with Philadelphia and the Bears in theirs with the Cardinals are topheavy favorites to win. And two games off the pace is not easily made up. The Dodgers lost their only game to the Washington Redskins a week ago, 3-0, but from all accounts, hardly deserved to lose. They outgained the Redskins, outdowned them, outpunted them and had several fine scoring opportunities snuffed out by penalties. In all except scoring, they were the better team, and you may well imagine the frame of mind with which they approach Sunday's battle. Like all Sutherland coached teams, the Dodgers ooze power. Next to the Bears, they probably possess the most devastating running game in the league with backs like Pug Manders, who leads the league in yards gained; 168 pound Ace Parker, who was selected the most valuable pro of last season; Dean McAdams, Merle Condit, George Kracum, Ben Kish, Bill Leckonby, Larry Peace and Larry Stasica, and a line which includes Bruiser Kinard, all-league tackle last season; Perry Schwartz, all-league end; Earl Svendsen, Steve Petro, Warren Alfson, Ed Rucinski and Henry Hodges. The team has great power and speed, particularly speed on the reverses so dear to Sutherland's heart. Green Bay's line, especially the ends, can expect the roughest sort of afternoon. Appreciating what a threat the Dodgers are to his own championship hopes, Lambeau has fumed and fretted all week through one of the hardest practice sieges of the season. The game with the Bears two weeks ago left him in a bad mood, the game with the Cardinals last Sunday, which Green Bay barely managed to win, left him even worse. As usual, since the running game has been spotty at best against the good defensive clubs this fall, the Packers will probably have to rely largely on their pass attack. Lambeau has brushed it up all week, and with Cecil Isbell, the engineer, fully recovered from the muscle pull which handicapped him for several weeks, the fretting Belgian believes it is good enough to match anything Brooklyn will explode on the ground. In addition to Isbell, other cripples of recent weeks have fully recovered and the team will take the field in its best shape of the fall. Charley Schultz, tackle, and Mulleneaux, end, both have recovered from bumps they carried around earlier this year.
PACKERS TAKE ON DODGERS HERE TODAY
OCT 12 (Milwaukee Sentinel) - An intersectional NFL game bringing the Brooklyn Dodgers and Green Bay Packers Sunday at State Fair park is expected to attract one of the season's best crowds. The crucial encounter gets underway at 2 p.m. Under the capable tutelage of Dr. John B. Sutherland, long rated as one of the outstanding coaches in football, the Dodgers will present a well groomed outfit which is very much in the championship race. The easterners' battle front is studded with all-Americans. Such sterling performers as Ace Parker of Duke, Dean McAdams of Washington, Perry Schwartz of California and Bruiser Kinard of Mississippi are just about in a class by themselves when it comes to footballing. A varied attack with a lot of passing and laterals gives the Brooks class galore on the offense and seldom does a game run off without Dr. Sutherland getting into his bag of tricks for a fancy trick or two which generally leaves his opponents behind the eight ball. Curly Lambeau, the Green Bay pilot, has been working his gridders overtime all week in preparation for the joust and he feels confident that his Packers are going to hit on "all eleven." The Green Bay squad is in good physical shape and the recruits as well as the veterans are said to be anxiously waiting the "zero hour" when they can take the field to tangle with the much publicized invaders from the Empire State.
