Green Bay Packers (6-1-1) 6, Dayton Triangles (1-6-1) 0
Sunday November 13th 1927 (at Green Bay)
GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - Now for the Bears! That was what the Packer squad talked about as they wended their way out of the City stadium Sunday afternoon after administering a 6 to 0 defeat to the Dayton Triangles in a National league game before a crowd of some 2,500 spectators which included 400 scholastic footballers from many cities in Northeastern Wisconsin. The fracas with Dayton pulled down the curtain on the 1927 professional football season in Green Bay. It was a fitting end to a good year at home. The Bays met with some tough opposition but at no time in the game did the Ohioans loom dangerous so far as scoring was concerns.
BRITTON SOME KICKER
Earl Britton, who was a playmate of Red Grange during their college days was very much in the limelight for the invaders. He did nearly all the passing and every bit of the kicking. Britton who is said to be one of the greatest punters in the country was very much on, but he didn't have anything on Lewellen who was doing quite some booting himself. Just as the second half got underway, buckets were passed through the crowd to help finance the trip of the Legion "Lumberjack" band to the Bear to the Bear game in Chicago next Sunday and when Chairman Witteborg finished counting the contributions he smiled to the extent of some $240. This means the band will make the trip.
COULDN'T GAIN MUCH
The Triangles put up a good game on the defense but their offense didn't amount to much. The few first downs they mustered all came as a result of the forward pass. Never were the visitors able to notch a single first down on straight football. Only twice during the fracas were the visitors inside the Bays' forty. The only touchdown came about midway in the second quarter thanks to some smart footballing by Eddie Kotal. Red Dunn shot a pass over the Dayton front wall and Eddie hopped on it about 15 yards ahead. Then the former Lawrence flash picked up speed. He sidestepped a couple of the hostiles and outsprinted two others. Finally he was flopped on Dayton's four-year stripe. The Packers crashed the line without much success in three thrusts but on the fourth attempt, Lewellen sliced through for a touchdown with inches to spare. Dunn missed the goal kick but the six points was enough to keep the bacon at home.
O'DONNELL TAKES KICKOFF
Hostilities started when Dick O'Donnell ran Britton's kickoff back to the 30-yard line. A Dayton offsides gave the Bays an extra "V" on the next thrust. Lewellen got off a beauty punt and it was Dayton's ball on their own 28. Britton soon punted back to Purdy, who was dumped hard by Joseph. Purdy fumbled on the next play and Hippa recovered on the Bays' 38-yard stripe. After two line thrusts failed, Dayton attempted a pass. Purdy knocked it down but was injured and Dunn took up the signal calling. The visitors tried another toss but Dunn grabbed it and returned to the Packers' 35-yard line. Lewellen punted and the ball sailed over the Dayton goal line. The visitors couldn't gain and Britton booted. The oval was downed about in midfield. Here the Packers put across a first down and they were going for another when another offside penalty spoiled the fun. Hearden caught a no-count pass out of bounds. Lewellen kicked behind the posts and once more Dayton scrimmaged on its twenty.
FRONT WALL TOO TOUGH
Dayton found the Packer front wall too tough and Britton had to kick. The ball went to the Packers near midfield again. Two passes went astray and Lewellen kicked to Tays who fumbled but recovered nine yards from the Dayton goal. A penalty for roughing the kicker cost the Packers the ball and some yardage just before time was called for the quarter. On the third play of the second round, Britton punted to Dunn, who fumbled but recovered on the Packers' 29. After gaining nine yards in two runs, the Bays got a signal crossup and it cost about five yards. Lewellen booted to Tays and he was dumped on the Daytonians' third chalk mark. Britton punted and it was the Packers' ball past midfield. Folllowing an exchange of punts, Red Dunn hurled a snap pass, covering about 15 yards to Eddie Kotal, who proceeded to leg it to the Dayton goal line. He was stopped only four yards from the last marker. Dayton held fairly tight on three rushes but Lewellen finally picked a hole and a touchdown resulted. Dunn's try for the extra point fizzled. After the next kickoff, the ball changed hands several times via the punting route. Just before halftime was called, Britton shot a pass to Sillan and he bit the dirt on the Packers' 39. This was the deepest that Dayton came into Packer territory during the game.
PENALTY IS COSTLY
The Packers kicked off to start the third quarter and Britton got off a poor punt after several line thrusts had failed. This gave the Bays the ball on Dayton's 35. A penalty for holding cut short a Packer thrust and then two passes fizzled. Lewellen booted to Achui and he ran the ball back to the Dayton thirty. The visitors didn't hold the ball long as Britton footed one back to Purdy who was tossed ten yards from midfield in Packer territory. The Bays made two first downs and it seemed as if a touchdown march was underway. However, an offside and a fumble spilled the beans again. Lewellen punted again and Britton booted back to Purdy as time for the quarter was called. The Packers had the ball on their own 42-yard mark. There was plenty of punting in the fourth period and the ball changed hands frequently. Finally, the Packers bunched a couple of ten yard offensives and Lewellen grabbed a pass for a 15-yard gain. Lew was banged hard on the play but finally got to his feet. Soon after, it was necessary for him to come out and Capt. Lambeau went into the game. Another pass went to the bad and Dunn punted after holding cost the Packers 15 yards. Dilweg downed the ball near the Dayton goal line.
PASSED FROM BEHIND GOAL LINE
Britton again booted the ball and Dunn ran it back to the Triangles' 33-yard line. Another Bay pass flopped and Dunn kicked the oval out of bounds on Dayton's nine. Britton pased from behind his own goal line to Sillan. This chance took the Bays by surprise and the fleet-footed Sillan dashed 25 yards before several of the Bayites hit him so hard that he took the count. Dayton tried a couple of more passes. Hippa was kind enough to fumble one, Jug Earpe knocked another down and Dilweg intercepted the third pass. Just after Red Dunn scooted around end for four yards, the final whistle blew and the Dayton club did a hundred-yard dash to their motor bus which whistled them to the hotel and then to the Northwestern station just in time to catch the afternoon train for Chicago.
DAYTON - 0 0 0 0 - 0
GREEN BAY - 0 6 0 0 - 6
2ND - GB - Verne Lewellen, 1-yard run (Red Dunn kick failed) GREEN BAY 6-0
DURFEE WILL REFEREE BEAR GAME
NOV 15 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Jim Durfee, of Columbus, O., who handled the Green Bay-Cardinal game very satisfactorily two weeks ago has been named by President Joe Carr of the NFL to referee the crucial Packer-Bear struggle in Chicago on Sunday. The Ohioan is one of the aces of the officiating staff in the National league and "Big Jim" generally draws the tough assignments. He sure got one this Sunday. However, Durfee will have plenty of capable assistance in the officiating line. "Horse" Edwards, one-time Notre Dame players, will be the umpire while Al Dudley, of Dayton, O., is to serve as headlinesman. Edwards has worked in a number of Packer games and the Bays rate him as one of the best umpires in the game. Like Durfee, he was calling 'em when the Packers and Cards battled to a tie...IS EXPERIENCED OFFICIAL: Al Dudley, the Dayton official, has seen a lot of service on the pro gridirons. He generally draws game in the east but President Carr made the "swing around" for the Bear game so that every official would be a non-Chicagoan. With these three capable officials on the job, it seems pretty near certain that Capt. Lambeau and his gridders will get an even break so far as decisions go in the Bruin combat. Interest is running high here over Sunday's game in the Windy City and from all accounts there will be a young army of Packer followers in the stands at Cubs' park when the whistle blows. A block of seats for the game will be sold at The Press-Gazette tonight from 7:30 until 9 p.m...LEAVE SATURDAY AFTERNOON: The Packer team will leave here Saturday afternoon at 3:10 in a special parlor car over the Northwestern for Chicago. While in Beartown, the Bays will headquarter at The Parkway hotel, which is located within a short taxicab ride from Cubs field. Early Sunday night, the Bays will hop aboard one of the crack Pennsylvania trains and head for Philadelphia. They are scheduled to reach the Quaker City about 5:30 Monday evening. This will enable the players to shake off their "travel legs" before it is time to practice Tuesday morning at Frankford field, the home of the Yellowjackets. The Bays will stop at the Adelphia hotel while in Philadelphia...BEAR GAME GRIDGRAPH: The gridgraph will be doing business at the Columbus club for the Bear game. Arrangements for a wire hookup with the Western Union have been completed and the C.C.C. will be linked directly with Cubs' park. The fans always get quite a kick out of the gridgraph presentation and the auditorium at the C.C. will probably house its biggest crowd of the season on Sunday. Ed. Johnson will do the flashing from the Chicago end of the wire. And in the meantime the Packers are getting ready for the battle which is always on tap when "bear steak" appears on the gridiron menu.
BEARS EXPECT BATTLE WITH BAYS
NOV 16 (Chicago) - Every once in a while, the schedule makers throw a "natural" when drafting a football outline and one of these "naturals" crop out here Sunday when the Chicago Bears tangle with the Green Bay Packers at Wrigley field, which is probably better known as Cubs' park. The clubs are tied for second place and they are only a half game behind the league leading New York Giants. To date both the Bears and Packers have won six games, lost one and tied another in the league schedule. The Wisconsin eleven has long ranked with the best professional teams in the country and this year's outfit is said to be the best that had ever represented Green Bay...GREAT FOOTBALL CITY: The Badger city is acknowledged as being the greatest professional football community of its size in the country. The Bay does nothing but eat, talk and sleep football during the gridiron months. The Packer team is coming to Chicago with plenty of support as about a thousand fans are going to follow the Big Bay Blues, as the Badger state champions are often called, to the Windy City. And with the Packer rooters will come the famous Lumberjack band, a 30-piece group all dressed up in mackinaws, flannel shirts and hobnailed shoes. These "music makers" came to Chicago in 1921 and State street inhabitants talked about their stunts for many months. In speaking of the game on Sunday, George Halas, former Illinois star, who is co-manager of the Bears, said: "I think the winner of Sunday's game is liable to carry of the NFL pennant as the leading N.Y. Giants still have a flock of tough games ahead...EXPECTS TO WIN: "Of
course, I think we are going to win but it will be a battle as those Packers are never whipped easily. We nosed them out at the Bay early in the season but I will have to admit that we got the 'breaks' to romp off with a 7 to 6 victory. The Packer have been coming here for years and they always have the crowd a run for their money. Green Bay's forward passing attack makes them dangerous at any stage of the game and what's more in Lewellen, the Packers have got a punter that is second to none on the pro gridiron. If you don't think Green Bay takes its football seriously, listen to this. The Bear management and Wrigley field officials today approved the application of the Green Bay club to string a telegraph wire into the park so that a play by play story of the game could be flashed on the gridgraph at home for the fans who aren't down there. If there was more of the 'Green Bay spirit' on tap in the National league, it would be much better for all concerned."
NOV 16 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Box seats for the Packer-Bear game in Chicago were placed on sale at The Press-Gazette office Tuesday night and they moved fast. However, there are still a number of choice reservations available and those wishing box seat tickets are advised to visit The Press-Gazette office tonight between 7:30 and 9 o'clock.
LARGE CROWD TO FOLLOW PACKERS
NOV 17 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - When the Big Bay Blues prance out on the gridiron at Cubs park in Chicago on Sunday, it is expected that there will be at least a thousand lusty lunged Packer rooters who will cut loose with a roar that should be heard back here on Washington street, in honor of Capt. Lambeau and his gridders. And what's more the Lumberjack band all tuned up for "bear" will play "On, Wisconsin" in a way that always sends an enthusiastic shiver down a loyal Badger's spine. In other words, Green Bay spirit will be on tap and the faucet to the pep making keg won't ever be closed...MOST "ASKED" QUESTION: "Are you going to Chicago?" That's the most "asked" question of the day in Green Bay and other Packer territory, which takes in all of Northeastern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. And the answer is generally, "Yes". From the looks of things it seems as if everybody is going. Requests for box seats in the Packer section at Cubs park have come in from several neighboring cities. Algoma, Sturgeon Bay, Manitowoc, Appleton, Shawano, Marinette, Oconto, Kaukauna and Nee-Menshash will all be represented at Sunday's game. The advance guard of the Packers' Windy City pilgrimage will move in on the direction of Chicago on Friday. These football followers are planning to kill two birds with one stone. They will see Wisconsin and Chicago mix at Stagg field on Saturday and then take to the Packer-Bear fracas at the Cubs park Sunday. In between times, it is quite likely that a good time will be had by all...LEAVE SATURDAY AFTERNOON: The Packer squad leaves Saturday afternoon over the C. & N.W. A special parlor car will be attached to the train pulling out about 3 o'clock. This will being the Bays into Chicago at 10:05 p.m., and the players will then take taxis to the Parkway hotel, which is located at 2100 Lincoln park, West, where they will stop during their stay in Chicago. The Lumberjack band, thanks to the indications received at the football game last Sunday and some personal solicitations by Chairman Witteborg of the "amusement" committee, will move out of here in a special Pullman car over the Northwestern at one o'clock Sunday morning. The "music makers" are steering clear of barber shops and razors these days and they will all have a natural facial woodmen's setting by the time the old rattler pulls into Chicago...PARADE STATE STREET: According to present plans, the band will toot a few times in the loop just to show the State st. settlers what real
music looks like. They they will take a sightseeing trip after which they will reassemble at the Parkway hotel and charge the air with some snappy stuff for the benefit of the Packer footballers. The band will go to the Cubs field early and do a "Badger-step" around the gridiron for the benefit of the spectators. Between halves some other fancy movements are mapped out by the Lumberjacks but their wood cutting activities will be delayed until after the final whistle blows. Then if victory rides high, they may try and take the Bears' goal posts home as remembrances of Nov. 20, 1927 in Chicago. Both railroads are offering "one way" fare tickets to Chicago for the Bear game. The price is $7.11 roundtrip. These tickets are good for the St. Paul trains leaving at 1:15 and 6:20 Sunday morning while on the Northwestern, there is a choice of three trains, 1 a.m.; 3:40 and 7 a.m. Plans for just one special train were abandoned so as to give the fans the choice of both routes at different hours. There are still some box seats available here for Sunday's game. A number of reservations are on file but these must be picked up not later than Friday night as all of the unsold tickets have to be in the hands of the Bear management in Chicago not later than Saturday noon. The ticket office at The Press-Gazette will be opened tonight and Friday evening from 7:30 until 9 o'clock.
GRIDGRAPH TO WORK ON RIGHT ON DOT FOR FRACAS WITH BEARS
NOV 17 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Managers and operators of the gridgraph have been pointing for the Bears game, and all reports from this group of mechanics are to the effect that they will be in good condition for the Bear game, and will be able to flash the play by play reproduction of the contest without a falter in the Columbus club auditorium next Sunday afternoon. The reproduction of the Cardinal game a week ago was a trifle faltering as it was the first contest of the season and the operators as well as the gridgraph may have been a little rusty on some points. The Bear game however is the big contest of the year and the boys have been drilling continually for this engagement. The Packers themselves are all set for the fay, and the Bears are more than ready, consequently it would be an excellent and interesting exhibition as it is flashed on the gridgraph next Sunday afternoon. The next thing to seeing the game is to watch the presentation on this play board in the C.C.C. Back in the old days when the fans crowded into the Turner hall and heard someone read off a play by play report of the game the home crowds grew into enthusiastic "wire" followers of the Packers. The gridgraph in the larger hall has added a great many women to the list of fans and and there is every reason to believe that the C.C. auditorium will be crowded to capacity for this event. There will be no reserved seats as usual and the first to arrive will be the first served in this matter. The early reports from the field will give the condition of the weather, the wind, and the dope on the crowd. Some of these early bulletins assist greatly in following the game after the first kickoff so that the early comers are not wasting their time merely to hold a good seat.
PACKERS IN GOOD SHAPE FOR BEAR GAME
NOV 18 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - It won't be long. One more practice and then the Packers' football togs will be packed away in the trunks and the team will start for Chicago, Philadelphia and points east. The first hurdle will probably be the toughest and the Bay footballers are centering their attention on the Bears game Sunday and not doing much worrying about the other conflicts...GAME OF SEASON: The tilt with the Bruins is the game of the season for Lambeau & Co. A victory practically means a national championship and that's just what the Packer squad is gunning for. The weather this week hasn't been any too good for practice but the players have been put through their paces every day. There is plenty of snap and pep to the work. The hospital list has cleaned up nicely and every one of the eighteen players is ready for action...WANT TO GET EVEN: The Big Bay Blues haven't forgotten that 7-6 licking they received here at the hands of the Bears early in October. This is the only game that the Bays have dropped this year and they are bent on getting even. Of course, everybody knows that it is a man-sized job to beat the Bruins on their home lot but these days the Packers feel confident that they are equal to the task. The Bays have been putting in some new stuff this week and the old bag of tricks is going to be ripped open for the benefit of the Halas-Sternaman combination. The railroads report a flood of inquiries about trains, fares, etc., to Chicago over the weekend and several of the veteran railroaders claim that "half of Green Bay" will be in Chicago on Sunday...GRIDGRAPH TO FUNCTION: The fans that stay at home, however, can get the Bear-Packer fracas hot off the wire because the Gridgraph will be doing business as usual at the Columbus club. A special Western Union wire will hook up Cubs park with the C.C.C. and as fast as anything happens on the gridiron, the fans in the auditorium will know all about it.
DRILL AGAINST PASSES
NOV 18 (Chicago) - The air is full of football at Cubs park every day between noon and 2 p.m. This is when the Bears practice and the team has been working hard to perfect a defense against passes. According to Bear officials, the biggest crowd of the season will be on hand Sunday. Tickets are selling fast and is is understood that Green Bay is sending about a thousand rooters and its famous Lumberjack band. Jim Durfee of Columbus, O.; Horse Edwards of South Bend, Ind., and Al Dudley of Dayton, O., have been named to officiate by President Joe Carr of the National league, who will probably be on hand himself to see the crucial gridiron conflict.
PRO FOOTBALL GOSSIP
NOV 18 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Curly Ogden is a hero in Providence these days. The flashy backfielder returned a punt 73 yards for a touchdown. This bit of traveling enabled the Steamrollers to snuff out the Duluth Eskimos by the score of 13 to 7...Nevers and his Duluth crew are looking like in and outers this season. Possibly the heavy schedule is raising havoc with the club. However, big Ernie continues to carry off and he is a regular war horse in every combat...Cleveland and Frankford split their weekend bill. In the Saturday fray, the Hornets surprised the native by whipping the Bulldogs, 22 to 0, but Friedman & Co. got even on the Sabbath with an overwhelming 37-0 victory...Chuck Kassel, who captained Illinois in '26, seems to have won a permanent job with the Yellowjackets. He picked up a fumble on his own 27-yard line and raced down the gridiron for a score with the whole pack trailing him...One of the Chicago sport scribes said the Bears should sen Barrett, the Pottsville center, Christmas cards. Barrett had a terrible time passing the ball and it was his miscues that beat the Maroons by a 30-12 total...Barney Wentz and Tony La Tone were the luminaries for Pottsville in the Bear game along with Kirkleskie, who is one of the best backs in the league. George Halas, one of the Bear managers, scored two touchdowns...The Chicago Cards took a beating at the hands of the New York Yanks, 20 to 6, but they went down fighting and as a result Eddie Tyron and Bullet Baker were forced to decorate the sidelines as a result of bangs received...With Grange out of the game indefinitely and two of the other backs much worse for the wear, Owner Charlie Pyle will probably have to dig into the bushes and resurrect a couple of more ball luggers for his grid team...Once again, Dayton bit the dust by a single touchdown margin. This time out it was the Green Bay Packers who smeared the Triangle, 6 to 0. The Ohioans did show much offensively but Earl Britton was punting 'em far...The Packers' lone marker came in the second quarter. Dunn zipped a pass to Kotal who traveled some 45 yards before he was dumped on the Daytonian's 4-yard marker. Then Lewellen pierced the line for a touchdown...John Spellman, who starred at Brown as a varsity football tackle and wrestler, is going great guns for the Providence Steamrollers at a wing position. The big fellow plays a crashing game like Hubbard, the New York ace...The New York Yanks seem to thrive on frequent action. After dropping a tilt to Cleveland, the Grange-men came back with a vengeance, winning three games in a row at the expense of the Chicago Bears, Cardinals and Pottsville...The Chicago Cardinals have a tough weekend ahead of them. On Saturday, the O'Brien-Chamberlin aggregation exhibits its football wares in Frankford while Sunday will see the Chicagoans battling the Giants in New York...Duluth is going to play a return engagement in Pottsville. Several weeks back, the Eskimos passed their way back to a 27-0 victory over the Maroons and the Miners are looking for revenge. It should be a "He-man's" combat...The air should be full of footballs when Providence and Cleveland lock horns Sunday on the Steamrollers' home lot. Wildcat Wilson and Benny Friedman are two of the best pass tossers in the National pro circuit...A battle, which will have considerable bearing on the 1927 championship, will be played at Wrigley field in Chicago between the Bears and Green Bay. These teams, tied for second place, are right on the heels of the N.Y. Giants...Pug Daugherty of Illinois, Ed Weir of Nebraska and Charlie Rogers of Pennsylvania are making up the coaching staff not in charged of the Frankford Yellowjackets. Swede Youngstrom handled the Hornets for two games...Earl Britton, Dayton's star fullback, has been purchased by the Frankford club. The former Illinois star started slowly this fall but right now he is stepping along at a clip that made his famous in his college days...Ray Flaherty of the Yanks is making a strong bid for an all-American pro football berth. He is specializing in grabbing forward passes. While playing against the Chicago Bears, he grabbed three for touchdowns...Jim Durfee, the Columbus, O., official, might better move to Chicago during the football season. The big referee has worked seven straight Sundays in the Windy City and now he has been assigned to the Bear-Packer joust...Rhoddy Lamb seems to have found himself again with the Chicago Cardinals. An injury set the former Lombard flash on the bench early in the schedule but he showed plenty of class when he scored against the Yanks...The major league baseball clubs as a rule frown on their players chasing the cowhide but two of the "Big Tent" diamond knights are performing in Joe Carr's circuit. Corgan is with the Giants and Purdy plays at Green Bay.
PACKERS AND BEARS BATTLE SUNDAY
NOV 19 (Chicago) - One of the most important games of the professional football season will be played here Sunday afternoon at Cubs park between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. The fracas will get underway shortly after 2 o'clock. One of the biggest crowds that ever witnessed a pro game in Chicago is expected to be on hand. Football fans here have long admired the Badger team as their open style of play puts a lot of college spirit into the affair...MANY GREEN BAY FANS: At least a thousand Green Bay fans are to follow the Packers here and the Bay rooting section will be reinforced with a Lumberjack band that is sure to be in the limelight all afternoon. The Bears and Packers are tied for second place and they are but half a game behind the league leading New York Giants. Gridiron dopesters figure that the winner of Sunday's encounter will very likely romp off with the National league championship bunting... THREE GOOD OFFICIALS: In view of the importance of the game, President Joe F. Carr of the National league has named three of his best officials to work. Jim Durfee of Columbus, O., will be the referee. According to word from both camps, the rival clubs are in the pink of condition. Each team has been pointing for this contest for the past month and it is safe to say that when the whistle blows there will be plenty of fur and other things flying around.
ON THEIR WAY
NOV 19 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Packer football squad left here this afternoon over the Northwestern road for Chicago where they will tackle the Bears at Cubs park Sunday afternoon in a game that will go a long way toward deciding the National league championship. The Green Bay squad traveled aboard a special parlor car which hitched onto the 3 o'clock. There were eighteen players in the party, several of the club officials and a number of rooters. Hundreds of Green Bay fans will be in Chicago Sunday for the game. The special rates offered by the railroads has helped a lot to swell the turnout. Many are driving down to the Windy City while others are already in Chicago and attended the Wisconsin game this afternoon. The Packers' headquarters during their stay in Chicago will be located at the Parkway hotel, 2100 Lincoln park west. The Bays remain in Chicago over Sunday night and take a Pennsylvania train at 10:30 Monday morning for Philadelphia where on Thanksgiving Day they will mix with the Frankford Yellowjackets.
PACKERS PLAY BEARS FOR TITLE CHANCE TODAY
NOV 20 (Chicago Tribune) - The hopes of the Chicago Bears for a National league pro football title will depend in a large measure on how the north side eleven entertains the Green Bay Packers at Wrigley field this afternoon. While a defeat would not put the Bears out of the title race from a mathematical standpoint, there would be slight hope that with two defeats registered against them they could overtake the Packers and the New York Giants. The Giants now lead the league because they have won one
more game than the Bears and Packers. Each of the three teams has lost one game...BEARS GREEN BAY JINX: Green Bay, the smallest city in the National league, probably has the greatest number of rooters of any of the twelve teams in the circuit. Although the Packers have never won a league championship, each season finds them near the top and on several occasions they have been nosed out by a one point defeat. The Bears in the past encounters seem to have cornered the pet jinx of the Packers and they have won the majority of games with Green Bay and most of them have been so nearly equally waged as to create tense rivalry. This season is no exception. The Bears won the first game of the Green Bay series at the Wisconsin field by 7 to 6, the margin being a Driscoll dropkick after the Bears' touchdown. Purdy missed his effort from the field after the Packers' aerial attack had scored in the final quarter...PACKERS HAVE HEAVY LINE: The team Green Bay brings today probably is the best of the elevens the town has sent against the Bears. The line outweighs the Bear forward wall and the backs must be rated equally as dangerous as the stellar performers which do the ball lugging for the Bears. The team has been strengthened since last season. Dilweg, former all-American end from Marquette university, is the most notable addition to the line and he adds greatly to the forward passing attack.
