Malsevich's short field goal try and galloped 98 yards for a touchdown in the closing seconds of the half. Milwaukee's powerful line, made even more so by the addition of Paul Berezney, former Fordham tackle who came here by the way of Kenosha, stopped the Bisons' running attack so completely that the visitors had lost 45 yards by the time the welcome final gun barked. No matter what combination coach Tiny Cahoon chose to use, the Bisons were helpless. It was pretty much the same among the Chiefs' backs. They all had a field day. Bud Hughes, La Crosse Teachers college grad who was with the Chiefs early in the season, was a standout at end for Buffalo. His catch of passes thrown by Andy Karpis offered the Bisons' only threat. Don Perkins and Malsevich scored two touchdowns for the Chiefs. Art Blaha, who returned to the fold last week from Kenosha, and Jim Trebbin made one apiece. Bob Eckl, one of the finest tackles in the league, placekicked 5 points after touchdown in as many attempts to maintain his record of scoring in every game since he joined the club last year. Bob Stephens' dropkick after the final marker was blocked. The Chiefs led at the half, 21-14. The scoring summary: First Quarter - Perkins swept right end for 39 yards and a score on a reverse. Blaha scored from the 2-yard line after Buffalo had lost the ball on its own 5-yard line when Osborne fumbled a pass from center on fourth down. Score: Chiefs 14, Bisons 0 Second Quarter - An exchange of punts gave Buffalo the ball deep in Milwaukee territory. A lateral, Osborne to Karpis, brought the score on fourth down from the 1-yard line. Malsevich ran 24 yards to score after intercepting Karpis' pass. Wheeler's 98 yard run after catching Malsevich's short placekick came a few seconds before the half was up. Score: Chiefs 21, Buffalo 14 Third Quarter - Runs of 20 and 35 yards by Johnny Maltsch sparked a 63 yard touchdown drive. Perkins took care of the last 4 yards. Blaha grabbed Osborne's punt on his 11-yard line, ran 19 yards and then tossed a lateral to Malsevich, who went the rest of the way - an 89 yard gain. Score: Chiefs 35, Bisons 14 Fourth Quarter - A forward pass, Stephens to Ohlgren, and a lateral to Trebbin covered 55 yards and produced the last marker. The Chiefs invade Buffalo next Sunday to close the season in a return meeting.
TEAM LEAVES FRIDAY FOR EASTERN JOURNEY
NOV 18 (Green Bay) - Coach Curly Lambeau and the Green Bay Packer squad will leave for their Eastern trip at 5:30 Friday afternoon, scheduled to engage Pittsburgh next Sunday and Washington a week later in their final drive to capture the Western division title. The entire trip will be by train, Lambeau announced. A decision was to be made tomorrow as to the training site between the two dates, possibilities being the Travers Island camp of the New York Athletic club, the University of Georgetown facilities at Washington, and the Westchester Country club at Rye, N.Y. A squad meeting followed by a loosening-up workout was on the program today. There will be two drills Wednesday and two on Thursday. A final light workout is planned for Friday morning...SEVERAL ARE HURT: Despite injuries to several players, Lambeau considers the squad in fair physical condition. Last Sunday's rough battle with the Chicago Cardinals sent Lee McLaughlin and Pete Tinsley to a hospital for the night, and Carl Mulleneaux also was hurt. McLaughlin and Tinsley had leg injuries, and Mulleneaux turned up with a badly bruised shoulder. Several other players were shaken up rather severely, including Larry Craig, who dislocated a finger. All of them are expected to be ready for play next Sunday. Pittsburgh did not win a game all season until it upset the Brooklyn Dodgers, 14 to 7, last Sunday. The Steelers are working like a new team, however, since Walter Kiesling took over the coaching duties as Buff Donelli's successor. Donelli came to the Steelers in midseason and then returned to Duquesne...JONES LEADS STEELERS: Halfback Art Jones led the Steelers in the their first victory in nine starts. With the score tied at 7-all at the start of the fourth quarter, Jones went around the Dodger right end 25 yards for a touchdown. With men like Jones and fullback Dick Riffle on the Pittsburgh roster, the Packers can expect to run into plenty of trouble. The Steelers are anxious to finish the season with a couple of victories to partly make up for a rather disastrous result. Lambeau will polish up all departments in this week's drills, and he also plans to devote considerable time to breaking down the Pittsburgh offense.
NOV 18 (Chicago) - Commission Elmer Layden of the NFL announced today that a club owners' meeting to draft plans for possible playoffs and the 1941 championship game had been postponed until Dec. 1. The meeting, originally scheduled for Wednesday, will be held at Philadelphia. Layden said "the playoff situation may be more clearly defined by the later date."
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORTS
NOV 18 (Green Bay) - "What's this about the Chicago Cardinals being so chummy with the Bears? In a Chicago newspaper Monday there was a statement about the Cardinals having tried their best Sunday "to help out their north side pals, the Bears." And right in the lead paragraph, too! Well, those fans who immediately suspected some dirty work in Chicago need have no fears. They can ascribe the unfortunate use of the word "pals" to a flight of imagination or carelessness, on the part of the man who wrote the story. The Cardinals and Bears always have been rivals, and they always will remain on that basis as long as both are members of the same league. There won't be any letdown on the part of the Cardinals when they play the Bears Dec. 7. The Cardinals will fight with everything they have, even if the Bears do want another championship. It's true that a victory over the Packers last Sunday would have helped the Bears. But the Cardinals were not fighting so hard, and so well, because of that. They were playing only for any glory they could get out of it for themselves...Don Hutson of the Packers is well on the way toward setting up a new NFL scoring record, and it appears that George McAfee of the Chicago Bears is doing the chasing. Last Sunday, while the Bears were beating Washington by 35 to 21, McAfee scored two touchdowns to give him 54 points for the season. Hutson, meanwhile, was crossing the goal line twice in spectacular fashion and also kicking two extra points, giving him a season's mark of 67. In 1940 Hutson marked up 57 points to win the season's scoring title. The league record of 79 points was made by Jack Manders of the Bears in 1934. With two more touchdowns, Hutson can equal that record. He had a good chance of doing it, too, with the Packers playing at Pittsburgh next Sunday and at Washington seven days later.
CHIEFS THIRD IN LEAGUE IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE
NOV 18 (Milwaukee) - The Milwaukee Chiefs hold third place in the AFL in more ways than one. The 41 points they scored against Buffalo Sunday gave them 91 for the season and put them in third spot offensively. The Chiefs are in third place defensively, with 84 points scored against them, and the club is third in the standings with three victories, three losses and one tie. They finish their league play with a return game at Buffalo Sunday.
MCAFEE CHASING HUTSON TO NEW SCORING MARK
NOV 18 (Chicago) - George McAfee of the Chicago Bears is chasing Green Bay's Don Hutson right up toward a new NFL scoring record. McAfee, now Hutson's nearest competitor for the individual point title, scored two touchdowns Sunday to bring his total of points to 54. Hutson scored two touchdowns, too, and also kicked the conversions, adding 14 points for a season's mark of 67. Hutson tallied 57 points last season to win the scoring title, and already has surpassed that mark by 10. The all-time high is 79 points, compiled in 1934 by Jack Manders of the Bears, and Hutson could equal that with two more touchdowns this year. He has two games yet to play. After Hutson and McAfee in the scoring parade come Clarke Hinkle of Green Bay with 44, Ward Cuff of New York, 42; Hugh Gallerneau, Chicago Bears, 36, and Jack Kavanaugh, Bears, 31.
STEELERS LOSE ALAN DONELLI FOR BALANCE OF SEASON
NOV 18 (Pittsburgh) - Alan Donelli, the 168 pound tailback of the Pittsburgh Steelers, is lost to the local pro eleven for the rest of the season. The speedy ex-Duquesne University star had hit left ankle injured in last Sunday's game with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Yesterday it was found that ligaments were torn and several pieces of bone chipped. Quarterback Frank Zopetti, who suffered a cleat cut on the foot, which required three stitches to close, may be able to play next Sunday when the Green Bay Packers appear at Forbes Field in the final home game of the season for the Steelers. Only other casualty of the first Steeler win was fullback Joe Hoague, who is sporing a badly swollen eye received on his long run to the Dodger 2-yard line to set up Pittsburgh's first touchdown. The usual Monday holiday found the Rooney-Bell squad in a happy frame of mind and eager to get a crack at the Packers. They will resume practice today at Moore Field determined to wreck the Green Bay hopes for the western division title just as they detoured those of Brooklyn in the East with their surprising 14-7 triumph. Coach Walter Kiesling, with a tie and a victory in two starts to his credit since taking over the Steeler reins, will attempt to build a defense to halt the pass catching of Don Hutson, the great Green Bay terminal. Coley McDonough, best Pittsburgh passer, will probably be back in action, which would mean that Don Looney, ace Steeler catcher, will get a chance to match prowess with the famous visitor. Looney didn't get into the Brooklyn game at all as the Steelers stuck to a ground attack and didn't toss a single aerial.
STEELERS IN SEASON'S FINAL HOME STAND SUNDAY WITH GREEN BAY'S GALAXY OF PRO GRID STARS
NOV 18 (Pittsburgh) - The Steelers' 14-7 victory over the Brooklyn Dodgers set one record which may be evident this Sunday in the final home game of the season with the ponderous Green Bay Packers, Western division leaders in the NFL. For the first time within memory of anyone connected with the Steelers' ticket management, fans stopped in the Forbes Field box office after Sunday's triumph over the Dodgers and purchased tickets for the forthcoming Green Bay game. The sale continued briskly at the ticket wicket in the Steelers' office at the Fort Pitt Hotel yesterday, indicating the clash with the Packers, given another nice football day, may draw another 20,000 attendance, perhaps even 25,000...LAST HERE IN 1935: Green Bay, a tremendous drawing card elsewhere in the pro league, has played but one previous game in Pittsburgh, back in 1935. Stars of the Packers' convincing 34-14 triumph on that occasion were big Cal Hubbard, former Geneva All-America tackle now serving as assistant coach for the Covenanters; Johnny Blood, who coaches the Steelers in 1937, '38 and part of '39; Milt Gantenbein, former Wisconsin end who captained the Packers; and George Sauer, terrific triple-threat fullback on Nebraska teams of the early '30s. Few Packers of that era are still playing for the Wisconsin club, the only ones being Tiny Engebretsen and Buckets Goldenberg, guards; Joe Laws, halfback; and Clarke Hinkle, fullback. Hinkle, now in his 11th professional football campaign, is still perhaps the most versatile fullback in pro football, a perennial leader in individual ground gaining, scoring and field goal kicking...STAR-STUDDED OUTFIT: The current Packers are a star-studded outfit, having, in addition to Hinkle, such individual standouts as Don Hutson, All-America end from Alabama, who is regarded as the greatest pass receiver in football, and Cecil Isbell, former Purdue ace who is Hutson's battery mate. Some of the other Packer stars are Russ Letlow and Buford (Baby) Ray, 220 and 250-pound all-league guard and tackle tandem, from San Francisco U. and Vanderbilt, respectively; Lou Brock, another ex-Boilermaker; and Charley Brock, one-time All-America center from Nebraska; plus a sextet of giants off Minnesota's recent collegiate powerhouses - Larry Buhler, Bill Johnson, Bill Kuusisto, George (Bud) Svendsen, Andy Uram and Hal Van Every...The Steelers are in a bad way for halfbacks for the Green Bay game. Alan Donelli came out of the Brooklyn fracas with a fracture-sprain of his ankle. Boyd Brumbaugh suffered a recurrence of a stomach ailment which may keep him on the sidelines the rest of the season. Coley McDonough, resting an injured knee, saw no action, but even so there is some question whether he will be ready to go against Green Bay. Art Jones picked up a charley horse, but should be available Sunday. Frank Zoppetti and Joe Hoague were other casualties of the Dodger fray. Zoppetti suffered a cleat wound in his foot; Hoague acquired a beautiful "shiner", a black eye was swelled completely shut yesterday.
