X - Non-League Game


The modern era of the NFL begins as divisional play begins. Playing in the Western Division, Green Bay stumble out of the gate going winless in their first three games. The Packers would only play mediocre football the rest of the way finishing with a losing record for the first time at 5-7-1. The franchise began playing a few games a season in Milwaukee to draw extra revenue, playing at old Borchert Field.


The NFL underwent major changes in 1933. Because of the success of the 1932 NFL Playoff Game, the league divided its teams into two divisions for the first time, with the winners of each division playing in a championship game to determine the NFL champion. Three new teams also joined the league: the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Cincinnati Reds. Also, the Boston Braves changed its name to Boston Redskins and Staten Island Stapletons resigned. On February 25, 1933, the NFL discontinued the use of the Collegiate Rules Book and began to develop its own rules. The forward pass became legal anywhere behind the line of scrimmage. Previously, the passer had to be at least five yards back from the scrimmage line. This change is referred to as the "Bronko Nagurski Rule" after his controversial touchdown in the 1932 NFL Playoff Game. Hashmarks or inbounds lines were added to the field 10 yards in from each sideline. All plays would start with the ball on or between the hashmarks. To increase the number of field goals and decrease the number of tie games, the goal posts are moved from the end lines at the back of the end zones to the goal lines. They would not be moved back until 1974.  It was a touchback when a punt hits the opponent's goal posts before being touched by a player of either team. It was a safety if a ball that is kicked behind the goal line hits the goal posts, and rolls back out of the end zone or is recovered by the kicking team. The results were obvious - NFL teams averaged an anemic 8.2 PPG in 1932, the third lowest average in league history, and then a record 23.2 PPG in 1948 – a 182 percent increase in 16 years.

JAN 3 (Honolulu) - After being played to a standstill in the first half of their game here with the McKinley Alumni, the Green Bay Packers started to click in the last two periods, and gave 17,760 Honolulu fans the greatest aerial exhibition they ever witnessed to carry off a 32 to 0 victory. The crowd set an all time record for the Hawaiian islands, and the contest climaxed a brilliant invasion of the territory by the three-time national professional champions, who defeated the Kamehameha alumni here Dec. 26, 19 to 13. The brilliant passing of Arnold Herber and the equally spectacular receiving of Johnny Blood and Roger Grove were the major favors in the victory. The first Bay touchdown came four minutes after the initial kickoff, and four others followed in the third and fourth periods...FOUR FIRST DOWNS: McKinley scored four first downs to 17 for the invaders. The most sensational scoring feat of the Green Bay team came near the end of the game, when Herber flipped a pass to Grove, who ran the distance with the ball and then tossed a lateral to Al Rose for a touchdown. The total gain was 63 yards, and Clark Hinkle converted. Arnie Herber's 25-yard pass to Grove in the first period gave the Packers the only score of the half. Grove dashed 28 yards after snaring the ball, but Hinkle failed to kick the extra point and the half ended 6 to 0. In the third quarter Herber threw a 25-yard pass to Blood, who was waiting in the end zone, for the Packers' second touchdown. Grove booted the goal. Soon after this event Blood broke away for 25 yards to the McKinley 10 yard stripe, where Herber went over for a touchdown. The attempt for extra point failed...ENDS IN TOUCHDOWN: Another consistent drive ended in a score early in the fourth period, ending with a 15 yard pass from Herber to Les Peterson. Bruder failed to convert. In the last minute of play Hank Harrison got away for a 65 yard dash from scrimmage to bring the ball to the Packer three yard line, but Grove dragged him down from behind, and after a single play had advanced the ball two yards, the game came to an end. Although 


outweighed 20 pounds to the man, the McKinley team surprised the invaders with its stubborn fighting ability. The Packers will appear in an exhibition of kicking and passing at the stadium Friday night. All members of the squad came through game uninjured and prepared to spend the next nine days vacationing in the islands. They leave for the mainland Jan. 11.


JAN 3 (Honolulu) - The paid admissions, totaling 17,760, broke all insular records here as the Packers defeated McKinley's alumni, 32 to 0. The heat and humidity proved a handicap to the Packers during the first half, but they outstayed the natives and poured it on them in the second half. The team cuts in on 50 percent of the gross, so everyone is happy. They will relax for the next ten days and were thoroughly relaxed Monday night. The crowd was greatly pleased by the game, and they are planning to bring the Packers back next year. Roger Grove played a beautiful game, tossing a lateral to Rose after a 40 yard run, Rose then scoring a touchdown. In the last minute of play Grove dragged down a McKinley player at the goal line to avert a sure score...MAKE OUR BREAKS: The Packers were trying every minute, and made their own breaks. McKinley was the same caliber as Kamehameha, but although the day was hotted, the boys were acclimated, and did much better. Coach E.L. Lambeau was highly pleased today at the players' stamina and condition. The Packers gained 320 yards from scrimmage, while their opponents made 110. The Green Bay kickers averaged 47 yards to 37 for McKinley. Green Bay completed 21 forward passes, to two for the islanders, and were penalized 35 yards as compared to 15 for McKinley...GRANGE WILL PLAY: Coach Lambeau has completed negotiations with Red Grange of the Chicago Bears to play with the Packers at Kezar stadium, San Francisco, Jan. 22. Blood, Herber, Michalske, Bruder, Englemann, Grove, Rose and Zeller will play the island championship basketball team Thursday night, and a capacity house is assured, thus pleasing Promoter Beaver, who wants to bring the Packers back to Hawaii next year. The entire club wishes a Happy New Year to its backers in Green Bay.


JAN 3 (Stevens Point Journal) - The Green Bay Packers, it is reported, are seeking the services of Harry Newman, Michigan quarterback, and Gene Ronzani, captain and backfield ace of the Marquette University eleven. The Packers, using the Rockne style of play, could use a passer of Newman's calibre and Ronzani has enough all-around ability to prove valuable to anybody's pro team.


JAN 3 (Green Bay) - Direct communication with the Green Bay Packers, now in the Hawaiian islands, and at present stopping at Honolulu, was established this week by means of shortwave radio receiving and transmitting sets by Peter M. Platten, this city, who began over a week ago to negotiate for the hookup that resulted in the receipt of messages from the Packers Sunday and Monday. A letter to the operator of station W6CNE, at Hollywood, an amateur shortwave transmitting station, sent by Platten early last week, suggested that a hookup between that station and amateur station K6BAZ at Honolulu be arranged, so that messages could be sent and received from Green Bay. Platten had heard the two stations communicating prior to that time, and believed a satisfactory hookup could be made...HEARD MESSAGES SENT: The Hollywood operator entered into the plan enthusiastically, and within a few days informed Platten that arrangements had been made, and that the messages would be sent back and forth between the two stations between 1 and 2 o'clock Sunday and Monday afternoons. Consequently, Platten's shortwave receiving set was tuned in to the Hollywood station's point on the shortwave band Sunday afternoon, and he heard the reading from the Honolulu station of a message from Coach E.L. Lambeau, and from Laverne R. Dilweg, and also the Hollywood operator's version of an earlier conversation with Dilweg on a shortwave phone. Monday afternoon the Hollywood operator reported at the appointed time that none of the Packers were in the Honolulu broadcast station, but were resting up for the game. Since Honolulu time is six hours ahead of Green Bay time, it was then quite early morning in Honolulu...WERE AWAITING MESSAGE: When communication was definitely established, messages were sent by telegraph to the Hollywood station, and within a few minutes were broadcast to waiting Packers at the Honolulu studio. Among those who transmitted messages to the team in this manner were A.B. Turnbull and Dr. W.W. Kelly. Other personal messages were also sent to some of the players. The amateur station in Honolulu is located close to the hotel where the Packers are stationed, and the boys have begun to make it a hangout, the Hollywood broadcaster said Monday. Messages sent from Green Bay Sunday afternoon were received in Honolulu in a very few minutes, and were copied as they were read by the Packers themselves, who were waiting at the receiving set for them. Coach Lambeau's message, which was read verbatim over the Hollywood station Sunday afternoon, after receipt there from Honolulu, follows:...ENJOYED HOSPITALITY: "This is the most thrilling experience I have ever had. All the boys are having the times of their lives. We are all completely thrilled with the beauty and atmosphere of the islands. We never experienced such hospitality anywhere. Each day has been more interesting than the last. We expect a very tough battle. Better football is played out here than people in the states think. They handle the ball perfectly, tackle and block very hard. In addition, they fight every minute of the game and never relax. Tell Lewellen, Hubbard and McCrary we expect them in San Francisco Jan. 17. Happy New Year to you and all the fans." There followed a message from Dilweg to his wife, and then a description of the Hollywood operator's earlier conversation with Dilweg, which ran as follows: "Lavvie described the very unique New Years' eve celebration which the boys took part in because of the coming game. The hospitality of the islands, he says, has been bewildering. The boys cannot express too much appreciation to the fans for making this trip and the other successes of the team possible, and will try to play a brand of football that will justify their support. The exact date of the trio back to California has not been determined as yet. The boys were very much pleased to get the messages so directly from Green Bay." The Hollywood operator reported that the boys are not counting the days until they get back, which is more of a tribute to the wonders of Hawaii, he said, than a reflection on the life back home.


JAN 9 (Green Bay) - The shortwave radio hookup by which messages were received from and transmitted to the Packer football team in Hawaii a week ago was put into use by members of the team yesterday to transmit personal messages to relatives or friends here, and these messages were relayed to their recipients by Peter M. Platten, who brought about the novel communication service. One message to all Green Bay football fans was transmitted by Coach E.L. "Curly" Lambeau, and read as follows: "All the players are in good shape and have had a fine week of relaxation. Will arrive in Frisco on Jan. 20, and the team will stay at the St. Francis Hotel. We will leave here Wednesday night." The messages were sent from Honolulu, where the Packers have been stationed, to Hollywood, Cal., by an amateur shortwave radio broadcasting station, located near the Packers' hotel. They were rebroadcast from the Hollywood station, which is also an amateur station, operating on shortwave, and were picked up Mr. Platten on a shortwave receiving set. They were then forwarded to their recipients here by telephone.


JAN 10 (New York) - A suggestion that the NFL abolish the point after touchdown and decide tie games with an extra period was made yesterday to his fellow directors by Tim Mara, owner of the New York Giants. Mara pointed out that only one game of 58 played in the season just closed was decided by the point after touchdown while 20 ties indicated the need for some solution for that problem. League players made good 77 tries of 105 attempted for the point after touchdown. "These statistics show how ridiculous it is to decide a game on such a mechanical thing as making the extra point," Mara said. "A team could have kicked off and resumed play in the time devoted to preparations and execution of the extra point play."



JAN 11 (Honolulu) - The strains of "Aloha Oe", Hawaii's farewell to its visitors, and the plaudits of a large crowd marked the definite finale of the Green Bay Packers' insular football invasion here this noon, as the sides of the liner Maui swung away from the Honolulu quay. Members of the greatest professional football eleven, which climaxed its first trip to the islands with a pair of brilliant victories over Hawaii's best teams, lined the rails of the ship as it was pulled away from the capital city and turned its nose toward San Francisco. The Maui will arrive in California Tuesday morning, Jan. 17...TEAM ROYALLY ENTERTAINED: Honolulu sent the Packers back to the mainland with the memory of its best hospitality behind them. The team was entertained day and night, and the Hawaiians were greatly pleased with the attitude of the visitors, both on the playing field and off. The entire island wants them back again. The trip was a fine vacation for the Packers who came to Hawaii from their northern Wisconsin city, now in the grips of a North American winter. They left Hawaii almost as tanned as the natives themselves, following a month's exposure to the rays. The morning column of Red McQueen, Honolulu newspaper man, Tuesday paid tribute to the departing football players. He said: "Aloha to the Packers! They leave for the mainland at noon tomorrow, and we must take this opportunity to bid farewell to Coach Lambeau and his boys."...GREAT BUNCH OF BOYS: "Naturally, we became personally acquainted with every member of the team during its visit, and we regarded them as the finest bunch of boys we ever would care to meet. The ordinary professional generally has a great opinion of himself and possesses plenty of ego, but not the Packers. They are regular guys all and look more like a college team to us than anything else. We're pulling for them to come back next year and several more years."


JAN 14 (Green Bay) - A general reunion of Packer football players and followers is promised for Jan. 17 at San Francisco, when the Green Bay professional team lands in preparation for its scheduled game Jan. 22. Hurdis McCrary, fullback, and Verne Lewellen, halfback, left today for the coast. Mrs. Laverne Dilweg, whose husband plays end with the Packers, arrived last night. Tom A. Nash, all-America end who has been laid up with an injury since the New York game, left his Washington, Ga., home today for the coast, and is expected to play Jan. 11. Cal Hubbard, giant tackle, pushed his car westward from his Missouri home late Friday, headed for San Francisco.


JAN 14 (Green Bay) - Circuit court jurors have been ordered to report next Tuesday morning for the opening of trials at the January term. The calendar was called last Monday, but no jury work was undertaken...Lavvie Dilweg will fight for the Packers in court, as well as on the gridiron, as defense counsel for the Green Bay Packer Football corporation in the suit brought by Willard J. Bent to recover from injuries received in a fall from the grandstand at a Packer game.


JAN 16 (Green Bay) - Action pictures taken of the Green Bay Packer-Kamehameha Alumni football game at Honolulu Christmas day were received by air mail in the Press-Gazette office today and are printed on the second sport page. They were brought to San Francisco via a Matson navigator line steamer and sent by airplane to the Press-Gazette. They were sent by the Honolulu Star Bulletin. Pictures of the game between the Packers and the McKinley team are expected late today and will be printed tomorrow in the Press-Gazette. They are the first pictures of the games at Honolulu printed in a newspaper in the United States. The Packers are due to arrive on the Pacific coast Wednesday and next Sunday will play an all-star western team in a K. of C. charity game.


JAN 17 (San Francisco) - Green Bay's Packer football players arrived in San Francisco today aboard the Maui from Honolulu where they played two football games with Hawaiian teams. After shaking off effects of the voyage that at times was stormy, the players held a short practice session this afternoon in preparation for the game to be played here Sunday against a western all-star eleven. The Packers plan to work out every day. They are in fine shape after their three week sojourn on the islands where they won two games and snapped through a lively drill.


JAN 17 (Green Bay) - An editorial of football, appearing in a recent issue of the Milwaukee Journal, proved good reading. The writer comments on Tim Mara's suggestion to abolish the point after touchdown and substitute a 10-minute overtime period in case of a tie. Perhaps you would like to read it. Quoting the Journal: "CHANGING FOOTBALL - AGAIN: One thing about football - it remains a bangup, lively game, season after season. That is shown by the numerous suggestions each year for changes in the rules and manner of scoring. Now the president of the New York Giants, Tim Mara, proposes to abolish the point after touchdown and substitute a 10-minute overtime period in case of a tie. His interest lies in the fact that ties games are now discounted in the percentage figures that decide the professional championships. The games cost the Green Bay Packers the title in 1932. But the proposal should be interesting to college football, too. Seven-to-six decisions are less satisfactory to spectators, if anything, than ties games. These outcomes mean merely that one team was lucky enough to add the extra point while the other was not. The game thus is thrown one way, and nothing is decided by the victory as to the relative scoring merits of the contenders. The lining up of the teams for the point after touchdown is a thrilling moment for the spectators, especially if the game hangs on the gain or loss of this point. Something would be lost if this play were abolished. Yet if the result would be the promotion of drop kicks and placement attempts for field goals, as Mr. Mara anticipates, the drama for the spectators would not suffer. Another suggestion has been made to award the teams one point for each first down. That would take a good deal of strategy out of the kind of game that Michigan plays, for instance - holding the opponent and waiting for the 'breaks'. Teams would have to quit stalling and get down to the business of carrying the ball. This plan, however, would probably result in putting emphasis once more on the old bruising, plunging play which the rule makers have tried to get away from in recent years. At any rate, football still has plenty of vigor. A game that can stand all the changes, actual and proposed, to which it has been subjected, is not easily killed off by anything that may be done."...We do not believe that Mara's proposal to abolish the extra point would help the game. Neither do we think that an extra playing period would solve the problem. By abolishing the extra point, more games than ever would find the regular playing time completed with the teams in a deadlock. Without checking records, we can recall at least five games that were decided by the point after touchdown last year. By adding the extra period, it would give a team that has the most reserve strength the edge. Sixty minutes is a long time to play bruising football such as is seen in the professional game, without adding 10 minutes. The suggestion of awarding a team a point for each first down doesn't appear practical. It would bring too much confusion. You wouldn't consider giving a basketball team points for each shot they took at the basket to decide tie decisions. We believe the only fair solution to the tie game problem would be adoption of the half-game plan. Under this proposal, a team that ties a game is credited with one-half game won and one-half game lost. It is simple and clear and would prevent teams in a close race from being content to accept a tie.


JAN 18 (San Francisco) - The Green Bay Packer football squad came through the famous Golden Gate here yesterday, to be met by Mayor Rossi, a band, police escort, and a large delegation of San Francisco fans, welcoming them to the mainland after a voyage from the Honolulu islands. Sunday the Packers will perform before coast fans in a football game against an all-star Pacific coast team. The game, a charity affair, is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. There were 18 in our Packer squad which arrived aboard the Maui from Honolulu where we won two games during the Christmas holidays. The boat was three hours late due to heavy seas the last two days, but we got into port in time to shake off "sea-legs" and run through a brief workout for the battle here...PLAY AT LOS ANGELES: Land was welcomed by some of our boys who didn't like the rough water. Jugger Earpe wanted to borrow the captain's stomach the last two days. The passage was very gay, however, and the boys shed tears over leaving Hawaii. The weather here seemed cold, and acted as a tonic. Harold "Red" Grange, who will play with us against the team Ernie Nevers will head Sunday, was on the dock to meet us. Other members of our squad who did not go to the islands, including Cal Hubbard, Verne Lewellen, Hurdis McCrary and Tom Nash, also were present, ready to step into action. Indications are that the game will be played before a crowd of 50,000 or more as Nevers has formed a great team to send against us. He has Kiesling, Carlson, McKalip, Edbing, Brovelli, Toscani, McNally, Musick and Ernie Pinckert on his squad. All those names are familiar to football fans...LAND IS WELCOMED: After this week's game here we will play at Los Angeles the following week against practically the same squad we face here. Nevers will add a few Southern California boys for the Los Angeles tilt. There also is possibility of a third game the following week at Stockton. Grange will play in all three games if they are staged. Coach Pop Warner and his Standford staff is helping Coach Nevers prepare his Pacific coast eleven. They are gunning for us in earnest and it will be a tough battle. All of our men are in the pink, however, so we think we can take them. A contract for a short motion picture in which the Packer team would perform also has been proposed by Hollywood promoters, but it is not definitely set yet. A number of dinner engagements confront the Packer squad this week. We probably will not accept all the invitations.


JAN 18 (Green Bay) - Football uniforms have been laid among the mothballs in most places and fans have turned to other sports but in Green Bay the game remains a constant topic of conversation. Interest remains keen in the Packers who are still active, preparing for a game in San Francisco next Sunday against a picked Pacific coast eleven. The Green Bay team will wind up the season with coast exhibitions, marking the end of the longest period the squad has ever been held together - five months. Success of the Packers in Honolulu helped the professional sport. The slim victory in the first game against the Kams wasn't satisfactory to many but the Packers overwhelmed the McKinley squad the following week, it vindicated the first score...A communication from Riley H. Allen, editor and manager of the Honolulu Star Bulletin, states that the Packers made many friends on the island. He reports the players "a fine bunch of sportsmen." "The Packers have made a great hit with the sports fans and the people generally of this city and the territory of Hawaii," Mr. Allen said. "They are a fine bunch of sportsmen, have conducted themselves excellently, and have opened all of our eyes in the matter of football. They played last Monday, our annual New Years' game, before the largest crowd that ever saw a football game in the islands. They have made a pronounced hit on the field and off. As a result they will be invited back again, I am sure, although possibly not next year, as two years in succession might be unwise. Green Bay and the people of your section certainly have a right to be proud of this team, and we can understand your desire to give the game such excellent coverage as you have been giving it."...The players will be back soon and for the next few months Hot Stove league stories will circulate thick and fast. Before the next season begins, we'll wager the curbstone coaches will have every player on the team traded at least once and will have every college star from Harry Newman of Michigan to Johnny Lemore of Oglethorpe signed for 1933. But that's a healthy condition. When you have an activity that fans continually discuss, you have a sport that is thriving. If there were no surmises, disputes and conversation about the professional sport, it would soon die.


JAN 19 (Green Bay) - Some interesting comments on the performance of the Green Bay Packers during their Hawaiian trip are contained in a letter received by the Hoberg Paper and Fibre company from a Honolulu jobber, who until a short time ago was an official at football games there. "The writer had the privilege of seeing the game the Packers played with our Kamehameha Alumni team," the letter says. "Might say that Kamehameha school is an endowed school and the requirement for entry is that one must have part Hawaiian blood. It was a very nice game from start to finish, and the thing that surprised me so much about it was the cleanness with which a professional team like the Green Bay Packers played. The game was quite exciting and the score as you know by this time was 19-13 in favor of the Packers. I believe they could have made another touchdown or possible two, but they had no walk-away and I believe that are thoroughly sold on the class of football played here in the Hawaiian islands. I feel that Green Bay is to be congratulated upon having a team of such splendid gentlemen as these boys appear to be."


JAN 19 (Green Bay) - Packer football players may have played harder games against National league foes than they did in the first contest in the Hawaiian islands but you would never believe it if you saw the men after that game, according to Paul Burke, who is back in Green Bay today after a trip to Honolulu where he saw the team perform against the Kams, Hawaiian island semi-professional champions. "The Kams had a smart bunch of football players," Mr. Burke said. "They weren't big but they were fast and had plenty of spirit. A deceptive running game was shown and some fine forward passes. The Packers had considerable trouble winning. Without offering it as an alibi for the small score, I believe the weather and collegiate rules under which the game was played handicapped the Green Bay players a great deal. On two occasions Clark Hinkle was free for what appeared to be touchdown dashes but he stumbled so that a knee or a hand touched the ground and the ball was declared dead. Two other touchdowns scored by the Packers were called back."...IMPRESSED BY GAME: "The island residents were impressed with the performance of the Packers. The game was thrilling and there was a lot of good football displayed, not only by the Packers but by the Kams who worked very smooth as a unit. They seldom could gain through our big line, however, but their plays were started with precision and snap and forward passing was excellent. Before the game was five minutes old the Packers were drenched with perspiration. A blazing sun and a baked, tough field added to discomforts. Near the end of the game many Green Bay men began to wilt and there was a letdown and the Kams scored again. The Packers were able to come back strong in the closing minutes, though. It was an unusual setting for a football game. Honolulu is not the oriental wilderness of grass skirts that some believe, but a large, thriving industrial and commercial center in a tropical setting. Its residents are a mixture from many nations."...GIVEN ROYAL TREATMENT: The players were given royal treatment by everyone, Mr. Burke said. Entertainment was provided by army officers, business and government leaders. Many players took trips by air over the islands as guests of flyers. Volcanic craters and coast defense forts proved interesting sights. Mr. Burke combined the pleasure trip with business, calling on the island agent of the Northwest Engineering company, with which he is connected, while at Honolulu and stopping at western district headquarters on his return trip. More than 25 Northwest Engineering machines, manufactured in Green Bay, are in use in Hawaii, he said.


JAN 20 (Green Bay) - Repercussions of the Packers' Hawaiian invasion still are being heard from the insular capital, even though the thrice national champions have returned to the mainland, and are practicing for another football game at San Francisco Sunday. A clipping received today from Honolulu depicts a few more reactions of Don Watson, sports columnist of the Star Bulletin, to the Packer squad. Here's what he says: "Raymond Kaluahine, tackle on the McKinley Alumni football team, is regarded by members of the Green Bay Packers' team as the best player on the two teams that opposed the Packers in their two games in Honolulu. Other linemen who are rated highly by the visitors are Norman Kuaihilo and Herman Clark, while in the backfield Danny Wise, Hiram Kaakua, Toots Harrison, Johnny Kerr and George Indie all received a good word, the latter on account of his punting."...HAS GREAT ABILITY: "One of the Packers declared that while Kaakua did not get away for much gain during last Monday's game, they could see that he had great ability as a ball carrier. The McKinley Alumni line received praise from the Packers as being one of the fastest charging lines they have played against all season. The Packers are agreed that the brand of football played by the Kamehameha and Mickalum teams was much better than they expected to find in the islands. Jugger Earpe, giant Packer tackle, is enthusiastic about the play of the Hawaii linemen and declared that he would like to pick a team from the two aggregations that played against the Packers and send this team against a strong mainland college eleven."...PICK STRONG LINE: "He believes that an exceptionally strong line could be picked and that with such a line in front of them the backfield men would be able to carry on their share of the work. Several of the Packers like Hawaii so well that they have been inquiring about possibilities of landing coaching jobs here. Among these is Wuert Engelmann, formerly of South Dakota. All want to return to the islands again and Coach Curly Lambeau has already been dickering for another game here in 1933 or 1934. Earpe, by the way, lost a valuable gold and silver cigar lighter since his arrival in Honolulu. He values his lighter particularly because it bears an engraving showing it was presented to him as a member of the national pro championship Green Bay Packer team."


JAN 21 (San Francisco) - Harold (Red) Grange, the Galloping Ghost of Wheaton, was paired with stars of the Green Bay Packers' backfield here today as the thrice national champions stepped through a lively drill, in preparation for their game with Ernie Nevers' Pacific coast All-Stars Sunday. There was considerable joking earlier this week, when Grange, who has been Green Bay's arch-enemy of the gridiron for many a year, attempt to fit himself as a brand new cog into the Packer machinery, but all levity was tossed aside today as the professional team drove through its final practice session...PAIRED WITH BLOOD: Grange, in the pink of condition, was paired with Johnny Blood, Packer halfback, in one backfield combination, and the two looked impressive with Blood getting under several of Grange's fast tosses. McCrary worked in with Hinkle at fullback, and the other Packer players accepted their regular assignments, under the supervision of Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau. The game will start at 2:15 o'clock, Pacific standard time, or 4:15 Central time, in


Kezar stadium here tomorrow. It probably will feature the last gridiron appearance of the blond Ernie Nevers, the great Stanford fullback, who has announced his playing days will terminate with the final battle against the Packers, his traditional foes...ALL-STARS PRACTICE: The All-Stars also worked out here today. The backfield combination which looked best saw Nevers at fullback; Jim Musick, former University of Southern California star at quarterback; Angel Brovelli, St. Mary's college ace last season, and Ernie Pinckert, another U.S.C. immortal, at halfbacks. Nevers will draw upon a flood of talent for line duty, including McKalip, Kiesling, Carlson, McNally and Ebding, all well known to the Packers. The Packer Honolulu barnstormers will be reinforced by several of their men who held to the mainland during the Hawaiian excursion: Cal Hubbard, Verne Lewellen, Tom Nash and Hurdis McCrary. Sunday's game is sponsored by the San Francisco Knights of Columbus and proceeds will go to charity.


JAN 21 (Green Bay) - No announcement of radio broadcasting plans involving the Packer-Pacific All-Star football game at San Francisco have been received at the Press-Gazette office. However, Monday's Press-Gazette will provide full coverage of the coast game, for all readers of the newspaper.



JAN 23 (San Francisco) - Falling before a barrage of accurately thrown passes, the Green Bay Packers went down to a 13 to 6 defeat at the hands of Ernie Nevers' Pacific coast All-Stars here Sunday afternoon. In the lead by virtue of a well executed 46-yard pass play from Hinkle to Nash in the early part of the second quarter, the National league team relinquished its hold a few moments later when Harry Ebding, Pacific coast end, scored on a freak pass that put the winners in front for good. Bunny Belden, Chicago Cardinal star, who played with the Nevers team, took the ball on a reverse from Nevers and faded back to pass. He shot it on a line to Ebding, who was running straight down the field with his eyes ahead. Half a dozen Pacific coast men hollered at Ebding and he turned around just in time to pick the ball off safety man Grove's shoulder and dash fifteen more yards to the score. Nevers then placekicked the extra point...GREAT GOAL STAND: After putting up a great goal line stand that stopped a 51-yard march by the westerners in the middle of the third period and taking the ball on their own three-yard marker, the Packers again yielded to the coast eleven's aerial attack shortly before the quarter ended. The score was made on a seven-yard toss from Nevers to Bill McKalip, who played with the Portsmouth Spartans and a 10-yard run by McKalip after the catch. The last quarter was scoreless, but Green Bay threatened in the closing minutes when 


Clark Hinkle drove through the line and Herber did some great passing in an eighty-yard drive that stopped on the All-Stars' seven yard line with but two minutes left. Great work by Hinkle and Herber featured the Packers' attack all through the game, while Cal Hubbard, Milt Gantenbein, Claude Perry and Nate Barrager dealt out a beating to the Coast All-Star linemen. Nash shined with his pass catching...THORN FOR PACKERS: Ernie Nevers, former Chicago Cardinal star, was the thorn in the Packers' side. In addition to carrying the ball 23 times, he tossed 12 of the 13 passes that his team completed in 20 tries. The eighty-yard Packer march was the longest sustained yardage gain of the game, and gave 30,000 fans assembled for the Knights of Columbus charity affair a closing thrill. It started raining in the last two minutes. Red Grange, who was drafted by the Packers for this game as an added attraction, failed to get going in the old-time form that brought him fame at Illinois. The coast boys smeared him up every time he packed the ball and he finished the day with a record of minus four yards for a total of five attempts. Grange played all of the first quarter and a small part of the last. It was the first appearance here of the Bay team, and the black jerseyed warriors made a hit with the crowd by their clean playing. Nobody on either team suffered any serious injuries. The Packers will go to Los Angeles to play a game with a team picked from former Southern California, University of California at Los Angeles and Loyola players next Sunday. The statistical chart showed the coasters had the advantage in practically all departments. Nevers' squad gained a total of 253 yards from passes and scrimmage, 159 yards coming from 13 completed passes out of 20 attempts. The Packers chalked up a total yardage gain on 203 yards, with 134 yards from seven completed passes out of 21 tried...LEAD IN FIRST DOWNS: The Stars ran up 14 first downs against 10 first downs for the Packers. Nevers punted 10 times for an average of 37.5 yards, while Hinkle and Herber kicked a total of nine times and averaged 32.2 yards between them. Nevers was assessed 48 yards on four penalties, while the Packers lost 50 yards through six penalties. The Packers fumbled four times and the Coasters twice. The locals recovered four fumbles and the visitors two. Nevers' team intercepted two passes and the Packers one. Nevers packed the ball 23 times for a total of 27 yards, Brovelli made 25 yards on seven tries and Pinckert averaged a yard a try on 13 trips with the ball. These were the leading ground gainers for the winners. Hinkle carried the pigskin 20 times for 52 yards. Bruder made five yards on his only attempt, Herber made four yards on four tries, Blood made four on three trips and Grange lost a total of four yards in five attempts...HEAVIEST IN EXPERIENCE: The All-Star line was the heaviest the Packers have ever played against. The weights were Kiesling, 270; McNally, 220; Carlson, 210; Edwards, 250; Christensen, 240; Ebding, 195, and McKalip, 190. The game might easily have been won by the Packers, but the score shows otherwise. Newspapers on the coast today credit the game with being the best exhibition of football ever shown in that area, and have given the Packers more publicity than in any game they have played. Kelly Anthony, son of the owner of radio station KFI, served as water boy. The Packers are stopping at the Hotel St. Francis. Everyone was well pleased with the game except the Packers, who long to play it over again. The team Green Bay faces at Los Angeles will include Ernie Smith and Tay Brown, U.S.C. tackles of 1932; Saunders, Pinckert and Musick. The Packers are all in good shape today, nobody being injured, although some of the boys are lonesome.


JAN 24 (Los Angeles) - Two of Southern California's great tackles, Ernie Smith and Jess Eibbs, will play with  Ernie Pinckert's All-Stars at Wrigley field here next Sunday against the Green Bay Packers of the National pro league. Cal Hubbard, a member of the Green Bay team for four years and rated as one of the best in the business, Jugger Earpe, a Packer veteran, and Claude Perry will oppose the Trojan stars in the line. Red Grange, who will play with the Packers, says the game against Pinckert's team may be his last.


JAN 26 (Green Bay) - When sports news becomes scarce in Milwaukee, the scribes on the papers there begin speculating about the Packers. The Packers are always a good subject when times are dull and the Milwaukee writers make the most of their opportunities. Now, to while away the interim between good stories, Oliver E. Kuechle of the Milwaukee Journal writes that the New York Giants and Chicago Bears are after Gene Ronzani, Marquette backfielder last year, and says if the Packers want him "they better hurry". After reading the Kuechle story, Ronzani will probably raise his ante about $25 a week - perhaps just enough to keep him out of a Packer uniform. The Packers, originating in a comparatively small city and with its field limited, cannot bid against the New York Giants and Chicago Bears for players, not when the amount offered equals the salaries paid to two good players on the local squad...CATCH 'EM YOUNG: As a consequence Green Bay has to catch 'em young and develop 'em into stars. That this plan has its advantages over the system of paying several hundred a week to one man on the team is amply proven by the record of the Packers during the past five years. Following is Kuechle's story, in part: "If the Packers want Gene Ronzani, Marquette's grenadier of the football field, as they said they did, they better hurry. For the Packers, it now develops, have company in the bidding. Both the New York Giants and the Chicago Bears have started to feel out the Iron Mountain boy. In New York, at the recent coaches' meeting, the Giants asked Tarzan Taylor, Marquette's coach, about Ronzani. In a letter the other day from George Halas, the Chicago Bears also wanted to know about him. Green Bay, of course, would be the spot for Ronzani. The grenadier has quite a following in the peninsula where he played his high school football, and his appearance in a Packer uniform wouldn't hurt at all at the gate. The Packers draw quite well from Upper Michigan...SIGN WITH HIGHEST: As yet, Ronzani hasn't given much thought to pro football. He has expressed a desire to play it sometime, but that has just been about all. When the time does come to pick one of the three clubs that have nibbled for his services, he will undoubtedly sign with the highest bidder. And now that may not necessarily be the Packers, especially so since Curly Lambeau wants linemen above backs. The Bears and Giants have money, too. The pros no less than the colleges can, at times, fire their coaches with post speed. Take the case of Lud Wray, who handled the Boston Braves this last campaign. Wray is now through. Except that it was generally felt in the front office that Wray's team did not enough versatility of attack, no announcement accompanied his release...NEWS IS SURPRISE: To most Boston fans, the news came as a surprise. It was generally considered that the former Pennsylvania player and coach (he coached the Penn team that lost to Wisconsin at Madison three years ago) had accomplished reasonable results with a team that was made up mostly of men fresh from college and without the professional's viewpoint. Under his direction, the Braves won four, lost four and tied two, finishing fourth in an eight-club league. For a first year team, that is not a bad showing. George Marshall, owner of the Braves, has not yet picked a successor. Harry Newman, Michigan's All-American quarterback, will play with the New York Giants next season, the dope in the east has it. Both Boston and Brooklyn started to dicker for Newman, but they discovered he had practically given the Giants his word he would play with them. Despite the absence of Bennie Friedman, the Giants this last fall continued as the best passing outfit in the league. A tosser of Newman's ability would be a great help in maintaining this distinction for several years to come."



JAN 27 (San Francisco) - The Green Bay Packers drilled through a three hour workout before a large crowd at Loyola field today, in preparation for their football game with the Southern California All-Stars at Wrigley field here Sunday. The arrival of Ernie Nevers today, to give the Californians a final brushing over, spurred the Packers to new efforts, as last Sunday's defeat still rankles with the Green Bay squad members. The call of Wisconsin is proving too strong for many of the boys, who are talking of heading homeward Sunday night. Despite this chatter, there is talk of future games and motion picture contracts in the air...INCLUDES U.S.C. STARS: Nevers is working with a squad which includes some of the best men ever turned out at the University of Southern California, plus a few reinforcements. There are Ebding, Franklin and Sparling at ends, Edwards, Christenson and Ernie Smith at tackles, Carlson and Kiesling at guards, McNally at center, Saunders at quarterback, Musick, Pinckert, Moses and Edelson at halfbacks, and Apsit and Drery at fullback. Bo Molenda turned up today and applied for a job with the Packers. Coach E.L. Lambeau has not announced whether or not the stocky fullback, a former Green Bay star, will be used Sunday. Molenda jointed the squad, however, in a trip through the Paramount Pictures corporation studios. The advance sale for Sunday's game has exceeded expectations, and if the weather is fair, a crowd of 30,000 is expected. The contest is sponsored by the American Legion and Knights of Columbus of Los Angeles, and Hollywood has made the center of the advance ticket sale, assuring the attendance of many motion picture stars and their families. Coach Lambeau is driving his team as hard as at any time this season, warning the boys that they are expected to win by a large score. Last Sunday's game has aroused the players to fighting form...PLAN TO BROADCAST GAME: The game will be broadcast from a Los Angeles station at 2 o'clock, Pacific standard time, which is 4 o'clock in Wisconsin. The weather recently has been very wet, although it 


cleared up sufficiently today to permit the lively practice session. Coach Lambeau is using many new plays, and the crowd watching the practice was vigorous in applauding their execution. Mrs. Lavern Dilweg is traveling with her husband. Harold (Red) Grange, the Chicago Bears' halfback, continues to practice with the team. He will receive a percentage of the gate in Sunday's game. There are no injuries, and the boys are taking the severe workouts seriously. The Packers should win by 14 points.


JAN 27 (Los Angeles) - Harold (Red) Grange says he will end his football playing career after a game as a member of the professional Green Bay Packers against Ernie Pickert's All-Stars here Sunday. The former University of Illinois halfback has played professional football since his collegiate career ended. Pinckert, former University of Southern California halfback, has formed a team composed mostly for former Trojan gridsters.


JAN 28 (San Francisco) - Apparently never more anxious to win,. the Green Bay Packers ended their practice sessions today in preparation for their important game with Ernie Pinckert's U.S.C. All-Stars, which will be played at Wrigley field here Sunday afternoon. Pickert's All-Star team is just that, including a variety of well-known names, headed by the redoubtable Ernie himself, and including Ernie Smith, all-America Trojan tackle...EXPECT MOVIE STARS: Despite the impressive appearance of the opposition, the Packers are looking for a victory. The kickoff has been set for 2 o'clock p.m., Pacific standard time. Much publicity has been given the game in Los Angeles and Hollywood papers, and a large delegation of motion picture stars is expected. If weather conditions are less soggy than during the past week, the crowd is expected to reach into the twenty thousands. Harold (Red) Grange, Packer halfback, who had trouble getting underway in the game with Ernie Nevers' team last Sunday, has displayed plenty of punch in practice. The Chicago Bears' ace has already announced that tomorrow's contest will wind up his career of football playing...APSIT, SAUNDERS PLAY: Two former Packers, Marger Aspit and Russ Saunders, will appear with Pinckert's team. Both are well versed in the Packer style of play, and are anxious to help upset their old mates. Future plans of the Green Bay team remain indefinite, but it is expected that some important announcements will be made after the game Sunday.


JAN 30 (Green Bay) -  A blast of publicity greeted the Green Bay Packers as they arrived in San Francisco from Hawaii, in preparation for their game with Ernie Nevers' All Stars, newspapers received today from the Pacific coast city reveal. Coach E.L. Lambeau was interviewed extensively, and wisely forecast plenty of trouble from Nevers' squad, while stating that the Packers, in his opinion, represented the world's greatest collection of football talent. Prescott Sullivan of the San Francisco Chronicle admitted he was impressed with the appearance of the team. He said: "The team that "can beat U.S.C. by four touchdowns arrived in San Francisco yesterday. The quotations belong to Earl (Curly) Lambeau and the reputation belongs to the Green Bay Packers...Lambeau has been in a professional football since the organization of the Green Bay Packers in 1919, a year after which he left Notre Dame, where he was for a season a teammate of Clipper Smith, Hunk Anderson and the immortal George Gipp...WON TEN GAMES: During the season just closed the Packers won ten games, lost three and tied one, and under a more equable scoring system would have won the title for a fourth consecutive time. The crown, however, was given to Red Grange's Chicago Bears, who won six, tied six and lost but one. Asked what his team would do against U.S.C's unbeaten Trojans, Lambeau had the answer in a flash: 'Three touchdowns at least, more probably four - we'd be too big, too smart and too good for them.' Them's strong words, partner, but Lambeau refused, to smile when he speaks them. And here's why: A line that averages 220 pounds from end to end. A backfield that averages anywhere 193 to 202 pounds, depending on what combination is used. A squad whose football experience in fast company averages approximately seven years to the man. A team that doesn't have to worry about anyone circling its ends - that just isn't done in pro football. The boys know too much...But the curly-haired coach of the Packers does have a wholesome regard for Ernie Nevers' All-Stars. Upon his arrival in town the first thing Lambeau did was to take a look at the Nevers' squad list. In a monotone he droned off the names of Nevers, Pinckert, Musick, Ebding, McNally, McKallip, Kiesling, Edward, Hein and the rest of the gang. Then Mr. Lambeau exploded: 'My gosh, that's the greatest array of talent I've ever seen under one tent. No club in the professional league could afford to pack a gang like that. There's too many big money men among them.' The Packers settled down to active practice this morning. Lambeau's problem is one of conditioning his men after a trans-Pacific trip and is also one of working Red Grange into his backfield combination...CAN'T CRY FOR COACH: Somehow I can't cry for a coach whose main worry is Red Grange and what to do with him." The San Francisco Examiner carried a three column cut of Lambeau, Grange and Mayor Angelo Rossi, the former two shaking hands. The caption read, 'We'll get Ernie, eh pal?'" In his sports column, Curley Grieve of the Examiner dealt historically with Johnny Blood, citing several of the familiar legends which have grown up about the Vagabond Halfback. He described the size and strength of the Packer team, saying in part: "The Packers are not sophomores in experience or appearance. Most of them have had one to eleven years' experience in professional football and some have established themselves in other walks of life...They are wise in the ways of football, these veterans, and they play the game to win...Lambeau rates Hinkle the greatest of today as a defensive fullback, Blood the greatest pass receiver, and Verne Lewellen, Nebraska, the greatest punter. Combined with Blood, Lambeau added he thought Nevers the greatest all-around pro player. But they likewise doff their hats to the Packers' mighty tackle, Cal Hubbard, a giant in stature. Hubbard, scheduled to arrive today, is six feet four inches tall and weighs 275 pounds."


JAN 30 (Los Angeles) - A steady rainfall that made Wrigley field unplayable yesterday caused the postponement until next Saturday of the football game between the Green Bay Packers of the NFL and a picked team led by Ernie Pinkcert, former University of California star, which was to have been played yesterday.


JAN 31 (Columbus, OH) - The point after touchdown and the huddle may be abolished from professional football when officials of the NFL meet in February, Joseph F. Carr, league president, announced today. A special meeting of National league will be called by Carr for discussion of proposed rule changes, which professional football leaders believe will make the game faster and more interesting...PROVIDE FOR PLAYOFF: Other proposed changes in the professional game provide for a playoff in case of a tie score, and for moving the goal posts from the end line to the goal line to encourage goals from the field. Carr said that several club owners had suggested an added 10-minute period in case of a tie at the end of the regular playing time. Another plan for ending a deadlock calls for giving the ball to each team for a specified number of plays until one team scores. Coaches and owners of National league clubs have objected to the point after touchdown on the ground that it often is unfair to one of two unevenly teams. For instance, Carr pointed out, the wind or weather might give one team a distinct advantage in making the extra point...SPEED UP GAME: Abandonment of the huddle has been proposed because "timing shows that 10 to 20 seconds are lost in each huddle." It is simply a measure to speed up the game, Carr said. The personnel of the National league will remain unchanged next fall, according to Carr.


FEB 1 (Madison) - The Wisconsin legislature will be asked to take official notice of the exploits of the Green Bay Packers, professional football team. A joint resolution, offered yesterday by Assemblyman Robert Lynch (D.), Green Bay, declares that the team's record of the past few years is without parallel and suggests that congratulations be extended to the team, Coach E.L. Lambeau, members of the Football corporation, not only because of their achievements, but because of their "demonstration of manly qualities, worthwhile in the contest of the life."



FEB 2 (Los Angeles by Johnny Blood) - The Green Bay Packers will wind up their extended football campaign, which has lasted more than five months and has carried them from the eastern boundary of the United States to the middle of the Pacific ocean, against Ernie Pinckert's U.S.C. All-Stars at Wrigley field here, probably Saturday afternoon. The date has been made indefinite to permit possible postponement until Sunday afternoon, provided "Sunny California" suffers additional precipitation similar to that experienced last Sunday, when one inch of rain fell in this area...BUILD UP PUBLICITY: The postponement is working out to the benefit of the Packers, as it makes possible a bigger publicity buildup for the final game. All sport writers are commenting favorably on the workouts the Packers have been taking and the visitors are expected to give Pinckert's strong team a hard battle. August (Mike) Michalske and F.L. (Jugger) Earpe left here Sunday night, headed for Green

Bay, and three hours later a telegram arrived for Jug, telling him that he is the father of a baby girl. Coach E.L. Lambeau lunched this noon with George Lee, scenarist who wrote the scripts for the films "Little Caesar" and "Seventh Thousand Witnesses". The two conferred concerning a possible scenario on pro foootball, using the postgraduate game as a background, and utilizing Lambeau as football director. Some of the Packer players also would be included in the picture...SQUAD TO BREAK UP: The boys are attending luncheons, fights and theater shows at no cost to themselves, as a means of advertising Saturday's game. No additional contests have been scheduled, so it is safe to assume that the squad will break up definitely over the coming weekend. Roger Grove, Wuert Englemann, Lavern Dilweg, Hurdis McCrary, Red Bultman and Hank Bruder will return directly to Green Bay. I am going back to Honolulu, and the rest of the boys will head for their homes in various parts of the country.


FEB 3 (Green Bay) - Two veteran linemen of the Green Bay Packers, representing the vanguard of the returning professional football team which has played together as a unit since early last September, expressed approval and enthusiasm toward the recent Hawaiian trip, but stated that the players in general will be glad to break up and call it a season. August (Mike) Michalske, 802 E. Mason-st., and F.L. (Jugger) Earpe, 1109 S. Roosevelt-st., are getting their first real taste of winter weather after participating in the Packer tour to Honolulu and the Pacific coast area, which involved the playing of three football games during the past five weeks...EARPE MISSES TELEGRAM: Earpe returned Wednesday night to find himself the father of a baby girl, born Sunday at Green Bay, but he very nearly was the last person in the state to hear about it. A telegram carrying the news arrived at the Packers' Los Angeles hotel headquarters a few hours after Earpe left Sunday night. Johnny Blood opened the telegram Monday morning and later that day, as Earpe traveled eastward on a train neat Yuma, Arizona, he received Blood's congratulatory telegram. Michalske and Earpe left for Wisconsin as soon as it became apparent that last Sunday's scheduled game against Ernie Pinckert's All-Stars would not be played. Rain forced postponement until this Saturday or Sunday, and Michalske ventured the opinion last night that the game will be played regardless of weather conditions...NOT ENOUGH TIME: "I expect to see Red Grange do a lot better work for the Packers in this last game," Michalske stated. "He barely had time to work in with our backfield before the San Francisco game, and consequently was not familiar with the Packers' signals and plays. He has been looking better at every practice since, and should make a great appearance this weekend. The squad is in fine shape, physically, but some of the boys are getting lonesome and will appreciate the chance to break up for the season. The Hawaiian trip was wonderful, and all the boys seemed to enjoy themselves a lot."



FEB 21 (Green Bay) - Memories of the "island of dreams" were recalled by Coach E.L. Lambeau and LaVern Dilweg, of the Green Bay Packer football team, in word pictures of the Hawaiian islands, for entertainment of Lions club members at their noon luncheon meeting at the Beaumont hotel here Monday. The speakers related many amusing incidents and interesting facts about their trip to the islands where the Packers won two games of the Christmas and New Year's holidays. They touched briefly on Hawaiian industry and beauties of the far western islands, and went into more detail on phases of the football game players here. Despite popular belief that the Packers could have won the first game with the Kams by three or more touchdowns, it was all the Packers could do to come out on top, Coach Lambeau said. He explained how the boys were given one of the hardest fights of their lives by the fast, shifty Hawaiian players who handled as they would a baseball...LIGHT AND FAST: "The Hawaiians were light and could not stand up against our bruising line play," he said, "but they showed us a few tricks in forward passing and running. There were several players on that squad, who, once they got out in the open were impossible to catch, and we have some mighty fast runners on our club." The coach also told of the wonderful treatment accorded all members of the squad for the fine manner in which they conducted themselves. Dilweg described the life on the colorful islands, and told of the natives' inborn love for music and sport. Between surfboat riding and singing, the Hawaiian has little time for work, he said...PLACE OF ENCHANTMENT: "The islands are a place of enchantment," Dilweg pointed out. "There is something romantic and colorful that grips you the moment you come within the sight of land. The marvelous beach with its picturesque background of palm trees and other tropical growth as it is viewed when the ship approaches the harbor is one of beauty that is hard to describe. When we left the islands it was with a feeling of deep regret. It was with the sense that we were losing something that never could be found again. There was a lump in our throats as we saw that marvelous playground fading into the distance. It was the most perfect trip that could be imagined."


FEB 24 (Green Bay) - Coach Earl L. (Curly) Lambeau of the Green Bay Packers left today for Pittsburgh to attend a special meeting called by President Joseph F. Carr, of the National league to discuss and act on proposed changes in the playing code for the professional circuit. Some of the National league coaches favor changes in the playing code, while others believe that it should be left as it is, the coach said. The proposal to change the present system of ranking teams to decide the championship also is expected to be the subject of discussion and action. It has been advocated by many followers and directors of the National league that the present method of figuring games as no games played be discontinued and some other method be adopted. Many directors believe that the plan to figure tie games as one-half game won and one-half game lost is the most fair and will support it, the coach said. The sessions will begin at Pittsburgh Saturday and continue through Sunday.


FEB 27 (Chicago) - Jesse Quatse, all-American tackle at the University of Pittsburgh in 1931, signed his name to a contract Sunday to play with the Green Bay Packers, E.L (Curly) Lambeau announced here this morning upon his arrival from a special meeting of the NFL at Pittsburgh Saturday and Sunday. Quatse, who weighs 215 pounds, is five feet eleven inches tall and fast. He is considered a find, all the clubs being after him. Bill Kern, assistant coach at the University of Pittsburgh and former Packer tackle, was instrumental in getting Quatse's name on a Packer contract...GLAD TO JOIN PACKERS: Coach Lambeau is enthusiastic about Quatse and believes that he will greatly strengthen the Green Bay team's forward wall. Still in school at the Pittsburgh "U", he is taking a dentistry course and will graduate in June. He wants to play pro football for several years, not because he needs the money, but because he likes the game. Quatse's eligibility ceases in 1931, but he stayed in school to finish some extra work in the dentistry department. Kern told Lambeau Quatse was the best tackle that had played with Pittsburgh in years, and predicts that he should go good the first year. After Quatse had signed his contract, he said he was glad to play with Green Bay. "From what I hear," he said, "the boys on the Packer team like to win. They play hard every minute and that's the kind of team I want to play with. I like the game and I believe that by playing with Green Bay I'll have the best opportunity to show what I can do."...RULE CHANGES TO HELP: Lambeau believes that the rule changes adopted will result in a much more spectacular game and give the fans many more thrills. "The new rule on forward passes, which will now permit a passer to throw the ball from any place behind the line of scrimmage, will greatly improve the game," he declared. "Now it will be possible to work out many more plays, and it will add to the effectiveness of many of our present plays, particularly the spinners. Under the new rules it will be possible for our quarterback to receive the ball from center and forward pass in to our ends and backfield men from any position back of the line. The new rules are made to order for the Packers. The Green Bay team has been playing touch ball every week during the season and I expect to see our men take to the new rules like a duck to water, and the fans can rest assured that the ball will be in the air most of the time. We can put in many more plays, plays that will add much to the game and give the fans a greater thrill. Teams inclined to use the open style of play will prove more sensational this season than the clubs that have been playing a more conservative game."...LAMBEAU ON COMMITTEE: "The goal posts have been moved up to the line of scrimmage and this will be an incentive to the clubs to try for more field goals. Furthermore, the fans will now know when the goal line has been crossed. This new rule will also make it easier to take the extra point after touchdown." Lambeau and George Halas of the Chicago Bears were appointed to a committee to word the new rules to be presented at the July meeting in Chicago. A new scoring system was discussed by the magnates and a definite policy will be mapped out between now and next July, when no doubt some plan will be adopted. If all clubs could play an equal number of games undoubtedly the league may decide to have a win count as two points and a tie game one point. If this system is used a tie game will count as a win and also as a loss or some arrangement made.


FEB 27 (Pittsburgh) - Rule changes designed to pep up the game were made yesterday by the NFL. Club owners made the forward pass legal from any point behind the line of scrimmage and moved the goal posts up to the goal line in an effort to increase thrills and reduce the number of tie games. Joe F. Carr, president of the league, predicted these changes will make the game more spectacular and put the "foot" back in football by encouraging kicking...BALANCE OFFENSE, DEFENSE: The owners agreed that steps should be taken to balance the offense and defense to make the game more exciting for the spectator. The collegiate "ten yard rule", making it permissible to move the ball in ten yards whenever it is in play within ten yards from the sidelines, also was approved. The 25-yard penalty for clipping was retained. Carr said the clipping rule is enforced rigidly in pro football, regardless of the heavy penalty. The college fumble rule, prohibiting defensive men from recovering fumbles, was retained...DRAWS UP SCHEDULE: Carr was empowered to draw up a schedule and submit it in Chicago in July. Applications for membership were received from Philadelphia, Cincinnati and Cleveland. The Pennsylvania bids were made contingent upon the repeal of the state's Sunday "blue" laws. Under the league's constitution, the circuit may have as many as 12 clubs. The directors will act on the applications later. The circuit now has eight teams - Boston, Brooklyn, New York, Staten Island, Chicago Bears, Chicago Cardinals, Green Bay and Portsmouth.


FEB 28 (Green Bay) - Willard J. Bent's suit against the Green Bay Football corporation, for injuries allegedly received when he fell from the bleachers at a Packer game, went to the jury early this afternoon, after being on trial for an entire week. Bent testified that he was sitting on the top row of seats when he, with others, rose to his feet to watch an exciting play. Someone in rising dislodged the plank, he said, and in attempting to resume his place he fell several feet to the ground, landing on a stump, and receiving injuries to his back which he claims have permanently disabled him. Argument devolved chiefly around the extent and nature of Bent's injuries, and whether the construction of the bleachers caused them to be a "safe place" within the meaning of the statute governing the liability of the football corporation to provide such a place.


MAR 1 (Green Bay) - Willard J. Bent, Green Bay, was awarded damages totaling $4,989.75 by a Circuit court jury last evening in his suit against the Green Bay Football corporation, for injuries received at a Packer game in the fall of 1931. The total award was $5,544.10, but this was decreased ten percent because of the plaintiff's contributory negligence. The case consumed an entire week. Bent fell from the top row of bleachers, it was testified, landing on a stump below, and receiving injuries to his back which he claims have permanently disabled him. The crowd had risen to watch an exciting play, and the top plank of the bleachers had been dislodged, according to the testimony, so that when Bent attempted to resume his seat, without looking, he fell to the ground. There was considerable expert testimony on the nature of Bent's injuries, and as to whether the bleachers constituted a "safe place". The jury found that they did not. The award to Bent consisted of $729.14 for hospital, medicine and doctor bills, $4,575 for loss of wages, and $200 for pain and suffering, all subject to the 10 percent reduction.


MAR 3 (Green Bay) - "You may talk about your southern hospitality, but for me there is nothing like Hawaiian hospitality," declared E.L. Lambeau, coach of the Green Bay Packers, in a talk at the weekly noon luncheon meeting of the Rotary club in the Attic room of the Beaumont hotel Thursday. The Packer coach, recently returned from a "glorious trip" to the sunny island possessions of the United States, described his sojourn there in terms of satisfaction for the splendid welcome accorded the entire Packer organization in Honolulu. A sort of pig festival was one of the most interesting, as well as one of the strangest things he witnessed there, he said...EAT WITH HANDS: Cut and dressed to suit the demands of the guests at the dinner table, the pig is first well cleaned, then filled with hot pebbles. When the pebbles are stuffed into its body, the pig is dressed in ti leaves, placed into a hole in the ground, covered with dirt and left there until supper time. All diners sit on the ground or floor, as the case may be, Lambeau said. Oriental influences are much in evidence, for all the eating is done entirely by hand. Lambeau noted the excellent entertainment given "the boys" during their time on the islands. He said the caliber of the Hawaiian football players surprised him. They were really good, and with adequate coaching and sufficiently keen competition, could unquestionably make a very creditable showing against any American team. Swimming, running along the beach, and keeping out of doors the year round accounts for the splendid health enjoyed by the islanders. The speaker said that rarely had he seen such strong and healthy bodies...PROMOTERS MADE MONEY: To the Hawaiian promoters of these games, the Packer trip was a financial success, said Lambeau. He said about $7,000 was realized by the sponsors of the Packer-Hawaiian games. As the time for saying farewell to these delightful islands approached, it was only by retaining ship tickets and refusing funds that he could induce some of the Packers to pack up and leave with the rest. They were enjoying themselves too well and did not want to depart from the isles, said Lambeau, and the Packer coach himself confessed that he would just as soon have stayed "a little while longer."


MAR 9 (Green Bay) - Verne C. Lewellen, former Brown County District Attorney and left halfback on the Green Bay Packers football team for the last nine seasons, is critically ill in a hospital here following an appendix operation Tuesday night. The appendix burst about 24 hours before the operation and physicians today held little hope for his recovery. Lewellen, captain of the 1923 University of Nebraska football team, was regarded as the greatest punter that the game has ever produced.


MAR 10 (Green Bay) - Slight improvement today was noted in the condition of Verne C. Lewellen, former Brown County District Attorney and for nine years star halfback of the Green Bay Packers, who is critically ill at a hospital here. Lewellen was operated upon for appendicitis, and for a time little hope was held for his recovery.



APR 8 (Green Bay) - Ernie Pinckert, former University of Southern California All-American halfback, has been secured in a trade by the Green Bay Packer football club, it was announced today by Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau. Under terms of the trade Pinckert will come here in exchange for Tom Nash, veteran end from Georgia who has been with the Packers five years, the coach said. If Nash refuses to go to Boston, the Packers will have the option of giving Boston one of two other ends of their club in exchange for Pinckert. If Pinckert does not come to salary terms with Green Bay or Boston does not complete negotiations with the man received from the Packers, the players will revert back to their original owners...MAY BE TRADED: There is a possibility that the Packers may use Pinckert as trading material, the coach said. The club needs tackles more than backfield men and if one or two good tackles could be secured in exchange for the star halfback, he might be traded. Pinckert was the first blocking halfback to win unanimous selection as an All-American. He was a member of such mythical teams of 1930 and 1931. The former Trojan star also was the first blocking halfback Coach Howard Jones ever permitted to carry the ball...PROPOSE MILWAUKEE TILT: Last year was his first season in professional company. He turned in several good performances with Boston, but never quite hit the stride displayed in college games. In discussing plans for the 1933 season today, Coach Lambeau announced that one regular National league game will probably be played in Milwaukee. There has been a constant demand for a Milwaukee game and as fans of that city support the team at games at Green Bay, the club officials believe it would be a good plan to stage a game there. Although not definitely set, the contest probably would be in October against an eastern club, with the New York Giants the most likely opponent.


APR 8 (Los Angeles) - Ernie Pinckert, former Trojan All-American, expressed satisfaction and delight today when informed that the trade that would send him to Green Bay had been made. "I was asked recently if I would like to play at Green Bay by George Marshall, president of the Boston club," Pinckert said, "and readily consented to the trade as it would team me with an old schoolmate, Nate Barrager, former Trojan center, and I believe I could turn in some great football for the Wisconsin team. Adding power to the deceptive and aerial attack of the Packers should regain championship honors," he added. "I would be delighted to perform with the club."


APR 13 (Milwaukee) - Eugene (Tuffy) Ronzani, Marquette University's three sport athlete, has turned down an opportunity to visit Italy next month for a football demonstration before Premier Mussolini, friends said today. The team will be composed of players of Italian parentage. Ronzani has offers to play professional football all next fall with the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Bears and the New York Giants but it is believed he will stay in school to finish his law course.


APR 25 (South Bend, IN) - Norman Greeney, varsity guard for Notre Dame three seasons, has signed to play professional football for the Green Bay Packers next fall, he said here today. A contract has been tendered to Greeney, but as of 2 o'clock this afternoon, it had not been returned signed to the office of E.L. Lambeau, coach of the Packer team. He was expected to sign, however, and as a South Bend dispatch says that he has accepted the contract, Coach Lambeau expected to receive it in the mail tomorrow.


APR 26 (Green Bay) - Norman Greeney, veteran Notre Dame guard of three years, has accepted terms with the Green Bay Packer football team for the 1933 season, E.L. Lambeau, coach and manager, announced today. Greeney announced at South Bend yesterday that he had accepted the contract and today a formal notice of acceptance was received by Coach Lambeau. The guard comes highly recommended by Coach Heartley (Hunk) Anderson of Notre Dame. In a communication to Coach Lambeau, the Notre Dame director predicted a brilliant career for Greeney among the professionals. "Greeney, who played right guard for us last year, will make a fine professional player," Anderson stated. "He is a very good offensive guard and pulled out of the line in fine shape and is a very good blocker. Defensively, he is about as tough as they come. He is about 5 feet, 10 1/2 inches in height and weighs close to 200 pounds. He is the ideal type for the pro league. He is real tough and very seldom gets injured." Greeney's home is in Cleveland. He will spend the summer there and report for practice with Green Bay on Sept. 5, he has notified the Packer coach. The Notre Dame guard is the second new player to be secured by Green Bay to bolster the 1933 team. Ernie Pinckert, former Pacific coast all-American, was secured in a trade with Boston recently. Tom Nash, veteran end, was given the eastern squad in exchange for the halfback. The signed contract of another star guard has been received, Coach Lambeau said but the coach is not at liberty to announce his name until June as he wished to retain his amateur standing. He is a Pacific coast star and was placed on several all-American elevens this year.


MAY 1 (Green Bay) - The injury jinx continues to haunt "Hard Luck Hank" Bruder, Green Bay Packer halfback. Playing in the practice game between the Northwestern eleven and an alumni team at Evanston Saturday, Bruder was hurt in the first play and forced to retire. The Packer halfback bruised his shoulder while making a tackle and was forced to remain out of action the rest of the game. According to Coach Hanley of Northwestern, the injury is not serious and will not handicap him in the professional game. Northwestern's team beat the alumni.



MAY 15 (Green Bay) - Red Grange is in town, and what's more says he wishes he lived here. "I enjoyed being a Packers, the brief spell I was one," the Galloping Ghost said. "I like the spirit that runs through your whole team on and off the field and the spirit I think that runs through this whole place. It's the greatest football town on earth, and you know that rating without my having to say it. I like Hollywood, but I don't know, I think I'd be perfectly satisfied to spend the rest of my days in a town like this - in fact in this town." Asked if his farewell to the game was one of those theatrical farewells which is likely to be repeated each year for several years the most famous of all gridiron heroes said that he really meant to quit. He, however, was not going to be stubborn about if and if properly approached with a likeable contract he could be induced to put off his farewell and to romp along the chalk lines again. If that happened it will have to be in a Chicago Bears uniform. Grange admitted he still belonged to the Bears even if he quit the game and retired...GIVES HERBER RATING: Among other things, the Red Head said, "The 1933 championship will in my opinion go to New York, Chicago or Green Bay. That's the cream of the league. The Bears will have to get a couple of really good tackles if they are to be the best of the teams. But they'll be up there one, two or three, with the Packers and the Giants occupying the other two places on the top." Grange said that Arnold Herber was one of the three best passers in football history, at least one of the three best he had ever seen. The other two he said were Benny Friedman and Bull Doehring. He also said that the Packers had the "best young backfield in the league. Herber, Bruder, Hinkle and Grove are good for another five years and what a combination that it. That's the sweetest backfield - young backfield - you'll see in action any place." Grange was with Earl Taylor, Mildred Harris (Chaplin) and many other show folks with whom he is being starred in Taylor's "Vanities" which is playing a two day engagement at the Fox...LIKES EVERYBODY HERE: The former Mrs. Charlie Chaplin said, "Red's the official traveling cheerleader for Green Bay. What he has said to you is mild to what I have heard him say at other times about this city. He just seems to like everything about everybody here and he misses no opportunity to put in a good word for the city and his friends here. He has me pretty well sold, and if I just couldn't live in Hollywood anymore than I think I could have a lot of fun living here. I don't care particularly for the big cities."


JUN 9 (Green Bay) - Robert Monnett, regarded as one of the outstanding college backfield performers in the country the past two years, of Michigan State, was signed to play with the Green bay Packers, it was announced today by Coach E.L. Lambeau. Monnett's signed contract was received by the Packer coach and captain here this morning. The former Michigan State star, who graduated with honors from Michigan State this week, was sought by nearly every team in the National league, according to Coach Lambeau, but decided to play with Green Bay because of the influence of James Crowley, former State coach, and Roger Grove, a former teammate who is a member of the Green Bay club...22 YEARS OLD: Monnett is 22 years old, weighs 200 pounds and is six feet tall. He is rated as an excellent open field runner who can pass, block and kick. In 1931 he was the leading scorer of the nation and he comes here highly recommended by Coach Crowley and others who have seen him play. "We are fortunate to get Monnett," Coach Lambeau said. "I think he will be one of the best young prospects we have ever seen in action. He is big, fast and shifty. His open field running is beautiful to watch and he should fit perfectly into the Packer machine. He also is a great blocker and loves the game, which makes for a perfect combination in a backfield man."...HOME IN OHIO: The backfield star's home is at Bucyrus, Ohio. He will report at Green Bay early in September when the Packers begin practice for the 1933 season. Monnett is the third player added to the Packer lineup for the 1933 race. The Packer coach seeks a few more linemen and backfield men to help bolster the squad for the 1933 race. He has been communicating with several prospective players, and expects to complete negotiations within the next few weeks, that will bring outstanding college stars here.


JUN 10 (Green Bay) - More power and brains for the Packer backfield were assured today with the announcement that Charles (Chuck) Jaskwhich, Kenosha, first string quarterback of Notre Dame for the past two seasons, has signed a Green Bay contract. "Jaskwhich is rated one of the smartest field generals in the game," commented Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau in making the announcement. "His presence is certain to be felt in the Packer backfield."...PLAYED UNDER ROCKNE: Three years ago Jaskwhich played under Knute Rockne at Notre Dame, alternating with Carideo at quarterback, but for the past two seasons he has served as the Ramblers' regular quarterback. He comes to the Packers highly recommended by Coach Heartly (Hunk) Anderson. Jaskwhich does everything well. His prowess as field general has won national recognition. He is an excellent passer, and blocks and tackles well...WINS SCHOOL MEDAL: In addition to his work on the gridiron at Notre Dame, Jaskwhich excelled scholastically, being voted the Notre Dame medal for excellence in athletics and scholarship. Awarding of the medal is considered one of the highest honors offered at the South Bend school. The new Packer backfield candidate is built along the lines of Joseph (Red) Dunn, Packer star of former years.


JUN 23 (Chicago) - A former Notre Dame football player, Alvin Culver, leaped into Lake Michigan early today from the grounds of a Century of Progress exposition in a futile effort to save the life of a man identified as James George Fisher, 25. A card found in one of Fisher's pockets asked that in event of accident or death, J.M. Fisher, Anderson, Ind., be identified. Culver played football with the Green Bay Packers for a short time last year. Culver, a tackle, was released after playing three weeks with the Chicago Bears and signed by the Packers. He was with the team here two weeks but played in only one game before he was released.


JUN 29 (Green Bay) - Joseph Kurth, regarded as one of the outstanding college linemen of the 1932 college4 season, today was added to the Green Bay Packer roster. A signed contract from the big tackle who for three years played on the Notre Dame varsity was received in the office of Coach E.L. Lambeau this morning. Named on every All-American team chosen last year, Kurth was regarded by critics as the leading linemen in college circles. His work with the Irish varsity was one of the standout performances of many years. It was his third straight season on the team and he was the only regular last year who was a regular varsity performer under the late Knute Rockne, playing for the famous coach in his sophomore years. Big, rangy and fast, Kurth is expected to become one of the best professional performers seen here in many years. He is six feet two inches tall, weighs 215 pounds and loves football. "Kurth was the outstanding performer of the Army-Notre Dame game last year which the Irish won, 21 to 0," Coach Lambeau said today in commenting on the big tackle. "We saw him turn in a game against West Point that was as good as anything we had ever seen before. He was down on punts, impressive on defense and always in the right place at the right time. On offense he often took out his man with a hard, clean block and then went into the secondary to get some other player. He played at top speed all the time and everyone who saw that game was impressed with his ability. Coach Anderson regards Kurth as the best tackle he has ever developed. In a recent communication he predicted that Kurth would be one of the outstanding linemen of the National league next year if he played with Green Bay. I think we are fortunate to get him. He should prove quite an asset to the Packer organization." Kurth was recently married to Virginia Alice Ortlieb, daughter of Mrs. Henry Steenport of Chilton. Since that time he has been connected with a large insurance company, working out of Madison. He is get a three months' leave of absence to play football here this fall and after the season again will make his home at the state capital. The Notre Dame tackle is the third Irish player to sign a Packer contract.


JUL 7 (Green Bay) - Green Bay will be represented at the annual meeting of the NFL at the Congress hotel in Chicago tomorrow and Sunday by E.L. Lambeau, coach of the Packer club. Officers will be elected, action taken on applications for franchises in the circuit, and the 1933 schedule will be drafted at the session, according to Coach Lambeau. All eight clubs that were in the league last year are expected to be in the fold again, the coach said. The group includes Stapleton, Boston, Portsmouth, New York, Brooklyn, Chicago Bears, Chicago Cardinals and Green Bay. Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Providence are expected to apply for admission into the circuit, the coach indicated before he left for the Windy City today. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh's applications were tentatively accepted by the league's executive committee, but must be approved by other officers. Joseph Carr, Columbus, is president of the league and Carl D. Storck, treasurer.


JUL 7 (Cincinnati) - Officials of Cincinnati's new entry in the NFL were in Chicago today for the league's schedule meeting and to consider applicants for the team's managership. Dr. M. Scott Kearns, team president, said several players will be signed. Those mentioned for the coaching berth include Noel Workman, former Iowa State college football coach; Larry Wolquist, former Illinois star; A.J. Joley, formerly coach of the Buffalo Bisons; Leroy Andrews of the New York Giants, and Frosty Peters, one-time Illinois player.


JUL 8 (Chicago) - Expansion of the NFL into a 10 or 11 club circuit was the most important matter up for discussion at the opening session of the annual meeting today. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh are expected to be granted franchises, and it is understood that Philadelphia also will make an effort to join the league which operated with eight teams last year. The officials attending the meeting were Joe Carr, Columbus, president; and Carl Storck, Detroit, vice-president and treasurer; Tim Mara, New York; Benny Friedman and Mart Schenker, Brooklyn; Dan Blaine, Staten Island; George Marshall, Larry Doyle and Lone Star Dietz, Boston; Potsy Clark and Harry Snyder, Portsmouth; Dr. David Jones, Chicago Cardinals; Curly Lambeau, Green Bay; George Halas and Charles Halas and Charles Bidwell, Chicago Bears. Boston announced that its club will be known hereafter as the Redskins instead of the Braves. Election of officers, discussion of rules changes and ratifying of the 1933 schedule are the important matters coming up at the final session tomorrow.


JUL 8 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Football association was represented at the annual National league meeting in Chicago today by several directors of the Packer organization. Coach E.L. Lambeau left Thursday for the session while Leland Joannes, president, Gerald Clifford, vice-president, and A.B. Turnbull, a member of the board, departed last night. Dr. W.W. Kelly, a member of the league's executive board, left early this morning to be present when the sessions were called at noon today.



JUL 10 (Chicago) - Green Bay has drawn the strongest teams of the NFL for its 1933 schedule, with six games to be played at the Green Bay field and at least a like number of foreign ground. The schedule was drafted after a spirited two-day meeting here over the weekend at which several important transactions took place. The most important things accomplished were the alteration of the method of determining the championship, addition of three new teams, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia, election of officers, adoption of schedules for some of the teams. Green Bay was the only team able to complete its schedule, others being forced to hold a few dates open to inability to settle disputes and the expected change in Pennsylvania blue laws which allow teams to play Sunday football after Nov. 12...BOSTON HERE SEPT. 17: The Bays will open the season at home on Sept. 17 with Boston furnishing the opposition. On Sept. 24, the Chicago Bears will come here. On October 1, the Giants furnish the opposition at Green Bay and on October 8, Portsmouth comes here. October 15 finds the Pittsburgh club at Green Bay. The following weekend, Oct. 22, the Packers travel to Chicago to meet the Chicago Bears and on Oct. 29 they return to Green Bay to meet Philadelphia. The Eastern trip begins on Nov. 5 with the Packers at the Chicago Cardinal field. On Nov. 12 the team is at Pittsburgh and on Nov. 19 it plays at Boston. The New York Giants are met at the Polo Grounds on Nov. 26, Thanksgiving Day. Nov. 30 is left open but a game is expected to be arranged either with Brooklyn or with Staten Island. On Dec. 3 the team is at Philadelphia and on Dec. 10 a tentative game is scheduled with the Chicago Bears...WILL DIVIDE LEAGUE: A plan similar to the one used by the National Hockey League will be employed by the NFL to decide the championship. The circuit will be divided into two divisions, east and west, with a playoff between the two winners for the title. The eastern section will include New York, Boston, Brooklyn, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and the western section Green Bay, Portsmouth, Cincinnati and Chicago Bears and Cardinals. All games will count in the tabulation of the standings, but the eastern and western teams will be in different brackets, or divisions, and the teams with the best percentage rating in each division will fight for the championship. The plan was opposed by some of the Western clubs, including Green Bay, but after considerable discussion was adopted in the belief that it would help make a better race. No change was made in the present method of figuring tie games as no games played. This was expected to prove one of the points of argument but it brought little comment. Practice will open about September 1, with the first game scheduled for the night of September 13, between the Cardinals and Pittsburgh at Pittsburgh. All games at Pittsburgh and Philadelphia will be weekday night games until after Nov. 12 when the blue laws probably will be repealed. The season will end in mid-December. Each team will play from 10 to 13 games...WRAY WILL COACH: The Philadelphia team will be coached by Lud Wray, former Pennsylvania star and coach, while Jap Dowds, formerly of Washington and Jefferson, will direct the Pittsburgh entrant. Bill Jolley, who coached the Cleveland club in 1930, will handle the Cincinnati eleven. The Chicago Bear club is the only team without a coach. Several applications have been received for the position held by Ralph Jones, who resigned to return to Lake Forest, but George Halas announced that no selection has been made. Staten Island, in the league last year, was permitted to withdraw for one season but must return to the league in 1934 or forfeit its franchise. Joseph F. Carr, Columbus, O., was re-elected president and secretary of the league while Carl Storck, Detroit, was named vice president and treasurer. Members of the executive board named were Dr W.W. Kelly, Green Bay, Harry M. March, New York, and George Halas, Chicago...CARR PREDICTS SUCCESS: Although Portsmouth and Green Bay are the smallest cities represented in the league other clubs were anxious to schedule these teams. In recent years the Packers, three times title holders, have been the best drawing card in the circuit. "Professional football has progressed steadily," President Carr said after the session. "In a decade the helter skelter assortment of teams, several of which could not afford to play at home, has been reduced from 22 to an organization which has financial backing in all of its cities and which not will be big league from start to finish. Professional teams are well coached, practice daily, and offer superlative football at prices less than those charged for college games. These have been factors in the growth of attendance. We confidently expect our greatest season this fall." The league reiterated its rule change of the forward pass which permits a pass to be made from any point behind the line of scrimmage, differing from the college rule which provides that the passer must be five yards back. It also stood by the decision made during the winter to move the goal posts up 10 yards to the end of the field in hopes of restoring the lost art of drop and placekicking for field goals. 


JUL 10 (Green Bay) - Representatives of the Green Bay Packer Football corporation at the Chicago meeting of the National league returned to Green Bay today and expressed satisfaction with the schedule adopted for the local club. The club was represented by Coach E.L. Lambeau, President Leland V. Joannes, Gerald Clifford, vice president, and Dr. W.W. Kelly and A.B. Turnbull, members of the board of directors. Coach Lambeau said that he was not in favor of the plan to split the league into two divisions with a playoff at the end, but that the majority favored it, so the change was passed. "The league should be stronger than ever this year," the coach said, "as every club is ready to spend money to put great teams on the field. We still are rated as the team to beat to win the championship, so every club will be gunning for us again this year. We have an attractive schedule as all the teams want to play Green Bay as they realize we are one of the best drawing cards in the circuit."


JUL 11 (Green Bay) - The NFL, grown up to a ten-club circuit, will decide its championship by a playoff this year. We wonder if it will prove satisfactory. Splitting the circuit into two divisions, eastern and western brackets, has some advantages, but disadvantages seem to outweigh them. The plan will give both the east and west a team that will be fighting for the championship despite the fact that the western teams may have it all over the east or just the opposite may be true. It should help keep up the interest in the race, and a team may not necessarily be out of the running although defeated in intersectional contests. The unfair part of the plan lies in the fact that one team may go through a ten game schedule undefeated and have the best record in its division. In the other division, a team may win only six games and lose four, to lead its section, and still gain a chance to play the team that won 10 games for the championship. Another disadvantage is that before the championship game can be played it will be late in December. Where can such a game be played that late in the season?...We were disappointed because the National league took no action on the tie game problem that has been a bugaboo for the past several years. There was considerable agitation last year for a change in the percentage reckoning from the present plan of figuring tie games as no games played to a plan that would figure tie games as half-games won and one-half games lost. The present plan cost Green Bay a chance for the championship last year and seems decidedly unfair...Addition of Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati to the league looks like a good move. It balances the circuit better than ever before. It is reported that all have considerable financial backing so will be able to put strong teams on the field their first year. Cincinnati and Portsmouth should stir up interest in Ohio, while Philadelphia and Pittsburgh always have been good sport towns and should draw well if the teams play good football. The Philadelphia and Pittsburgh clubs will be handicapped for a time in that the old Pennsylvania Blue laws are still in force and will not be repealed until after Nov. 12. Their state votes on the question of repealing them on that date and is expected to kill the legislation...The Packers probably will play football from September until the middle of February next season. A move is underway to form a Pacific coast winter league with four of the National league teams competing in the circuit, starting the first Sunday in January. The plan has the backing of many prominent Pacific coast sportsmen, we are informed, and is expected to go through. Green Bay, New York Giants, Boston and Chicago Bears would be the team in the circuit. They would be "adopted' by four western cities, probably San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and Hollywood and would represent these communities in six contests.


JUL 14 (Kenosha) - Charles Jaskwich, former all-around athlete at Kenosha high school and Notre Dame varsity quarterback for three years, has accepted a position as athletic director at Holy Cross academy, New Orleans, La., and will not play football with the Green Bay Packers this fall. Jaskwich secured written permission from Coach E.L. Lambeau of the Packers today to be released from his contract to accept the coaching position. Holy Cross is a prep school with an enrollment of 300 boys. He will coach football, basketball and track. The school is located on the Mississippi River just below New Orleans and has a fine athletic stadium, a large gymnasium and established reputation for winning teams in its section. The Kenosha youth was recommended by J. Arthur Haley, business manager of athletics at Notre Dame, and will start work Sept. 7. He is the second Kenoshan to graduate from college this year and land a coaching job. Nelo Pacetti, University of Wisconsin all-around athlete and teammate of Jaskwich in high school, recently signed to teach and coach at West Bend, Wis., high school.


JUL 14 (Green Bay) - Coach E.L. Lambeau of the Green Bay Packer eleven today confirmed the report from Kenosha that Charles Jaskwich, Notre Dame quarterback, had been given permission to secure the Holy Cross coaching position. "We are sorry to lose Jaskwich as we believed he would be a great football player for us," Coach Lambeau said, "but we never stand in a man's way if he can secure a coaching position, so Jaskwich was given permission to withdraw from his contract with us if he could secure the Holy Cross position."



JUL 25 (Green Bay) - Leland H. Joannes was re-elected president of the Green Bay Football corporation at a meeting of the board of directors following the annual stockholders' session at the Brown County courthouse supervisors' room here last night. It will be his fourth straight team as president. Other officers also were re-elected. They are: Gerald Clifford, vice president, C. J. O'Connor, treasurer, and George W. Calhoun, secretary. Member of the executive board re-elected are the president and vice-president, A.B. Turnbull, Dr. W.W. Kelly and Charles Mathys. The reelection of the entire board of directors was the final business at the stockholders' session, at which meeting complete reports of last year's business and an outline of plans for the 1933 season were gone into thoroughly. The board members are President Joannes, Messrs. Clifford, Mathys, Turnbull, Calhoun, Dr. Kelly, C.M. Berard, Ed Schuster, L.P. Ziebell, Ed Schweger, Lewis E. Peal, J.H. Golden, Marcel Lambeau, Ralph H. Drum and H.J. Bero. An audited financial statement was read by Treasurer O'Connor, summarizing in detail the expenses and expenditures for the 1932 season. The report was approved unanimously after it had provided interesting data for stockholders...EXPENSES ARE CUT: "Although we were able to cut expenses considerably during the 1932 season, reducing them approximately $26,000 from the amount it cost to operate in 1931, bad weather at home and general conditions resulted in a loss for the season of approximately $6,000," said President Joannes in commenting on the financial report. "However, with one of the finest schedules ever drafted for the 1933 season, and with prospects of another great football team, we believe, given a break in the weather, this deficit will be wiped out this year, or reduced considerably." Clifford discussed the annual National league meeting in Chicago and revealed that other clubs in the league all sought games with the Packers. The Brooklyn delegation had threatened to quit the circuit if they were unable to book the Green Bay on their own field and Philadelphia issued an ultimatum that unless a game with Green Bay could be arranged, the club would not enter the circuit, he said...DR. KELLY SPEAKS: Dr. Kelly, who is also a member of the three-man executive board of the National league, also spoke about the Packers' popularity with other clubs. He explained that the Green Bay eleven is the best drawing card in professional circuit and executives and players alike rank


Green Bay as one of the leading cities in the country. The 1933 schedule was discussed thoroughly and Coach Lambeau predicted a successful year, both on the field and financially, unless unforeseen circumstances crop out. Several new elevens will be seen here this fall and one of the high spots of the year will be the opening league game on Sunday, September 17, with the Boston Redskins, the coach said. This club never has played in Green Bay and is expected to be one of the strongest in the country. The team will be coached by "Lone Star" Dietz, one of the nation's outstanding football leaders, Coach Lambeau said, and C.J. Marshall, a wealthy eastern sportsman, has given Dietz orders to produce a winner at any cost. The club now has more than 30 former college stars under contract and many of this group were given All-American rating last year...EXPECTS 26 MEN: "We intend to have 26 or 28 players at the start of the year," the coach continued. "This squad will have to be cut to 22 after the third contest to conform with a league ruling. Some of our best men of last year will be back again and we will add a number of players who were outstanding in college circles last year. We believe another good club will represent this city. We have issued orders to players to report for practice on Tuesday, Sept. 5. However, players who make their home here probably will begin work several weeks before that time. This year, instead of playing a non-league club as a preliminary to the National circuit season, we plan to split the squad into two groups with veterans on one squad and new men on another, and stage a practice game. We believe it will afford a good opportunity to see what new men can do in competition with veterans. It is our plan to stage this attraction with admission at bargain prices. It should provide better football than than would be witnessed if some non-league club was brought here."...DISCUSS TICKET SALE: The season ticket sales' campaign was discussed briefly and President Joannes called upon all directors to stretch their quota this year. Vice President Clifford will be in charge of the drive again and every effort will be made to have ticket solicitors visit all communities within a 75 mile radius of Green Bay. E.A. Spachmann, who will handle the program advertising and ticket disbursements, will undertake to provide a better and bigger program than ever before. The stockholders' meeting was adjourned to Aug. 21, at which time final plans for the 1933 season will be completed.


AUG 1 (Green Bay) - The signed contract of Roger Grove, veteran quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, has been received by Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau, he announced today. Grove is the fifth Packer to turn in his contract...POPULAR WITH FANS: The coming season will be Grove's third with the Packers. He plays at the quarter position and has been consistently popular with the Packer fans. Roger is a shifty man on his feet, looks great running back punts and is a heady field general. He gives the impression of trying hard at every stage of the game. Grove graduated from Michigan State two years ago and joined the Packers immediately upon recommendation of Jim Crowley, then coach at the Spartan institution. Because of his speed and elusiveness, he can play at either halfback position when needed...LED SPARTAN TEAM: The veteran quarterback sports No. 11 on his playing jersey and weighs 180 pounds. He played three years of varsity football at Michigan State, captaining the team his last season. Grove probably will see considerable action in the Packer backfield with Monnett, another Michigan State flash, who was getting his varsity career underway when Grove was preparing to leave the Michigan school. These are the only two Packer backfield men whose 1933 contracts have been announced, although a deal is hanging fire with Ernie Pinckert, Southern California backfield ace, who played last year with Boston and who may come to Green Bay in a deal involving Tom Nash, veteran Packer end, probably satisfactory salary arrangements can be made.


AUG 2 (Green Bay) - The first of what is expected to be a powerful group of ends for the Green Bay Packers' 1933 football machine was assured today with the announcement by Coach E.L. Lambeau that Alfred (Bigum) Rose, 215-pound wingman, has turned in his contract for the approaching season. With Rose in the fold, the growing Packer squad includes six men...RATED GREAT WINGMAN: Rose will start his second season with Green Bay, when Coach Lambeau calls his first practice session on Tuesday, Sept. 5. The big end is a hard worker and is rated one of the best wingmen ever developed at the University of Texas. Powerful on offense and defense, he rates well as a pass receiver and probably will be seen in many forward pass plays during the coming season. Rose played three years of varsity ball at Texas before seeing varsity ball at Texas before seeing service with the Providence Steamrollers. He joined the Packers last season and immediately won a regular berth. Rose is tall and rangy and a powerful looking man on the field. ..SEEK OTHER ENDS: Al is the first end whose contract has been announced, although several others will be included on the squad before the opening of the practice period. Rose has been in Green Bay ever since the Packers returned from their Honolulu trip last winter, and in recent months has been employed as lifeguard at the Resthaven quarry, Duck Creek. He is as brown as a berry and in the pink of condition.


AUG 3 (Green Bay) - One of the fastest backs on the 1932 Packer professional football squad, Wuert Englemann, has signed his contract for the coming season, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. With Englemann back in the fold, the growing Packer squad totals seven players...HARD TO BRING DOWN: Englemann's gridiron nickname is "The South Dakota Jackrabbit", given him by Packer fans because of his hard running tactics and elusive offensive play. His specialty is skirting the ends, and once he gets into the open he is considered an exceptionally hard man to bring down. Wuert scales 195 pounds, and played three years of varsity football at South Dakota, captaining the team one season. The 1933 season will be his fourth with the Packers. He has seen service, along with several other Packers, as lifeguard at Resthaven quarry this summer, and is tanned and ready to start hefty training. Packer fans will remember the Providence-Green Bay game of 1931, when Englemann dashed across for three touchdowns within the first few minutes of play. The Packers finally won the contest, 48 to 20, but it was Wuert's sensational play which the fans discussed on their way home from City stadium. Englemann will be ready to report with the opening of practice sessions Tuesday, Sept. 5.


AUG 4 (Green Bay) - Milton Gantenbein, the only Wisconsin varsity football player to hold a job with the Green Bay Packers for several years, will return to aid the Bays in the 1933 championship quest, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today in confirming the signing of Gantenbein's contract. Eight Packers have now signed definitely...THIRD WITH PACKERS: Gantenbein's term of service with the Packers - this will be his third year - has been a round of consistent defensive and hard driving offensive play. He is large and powerful, weighing 210 pounds, and has had plenty of experience while paired with Al Rose, the other end whom the Packers have signed to date. Milt played for three years at the University of Wisconsin, his work being outstanding during a somewhat drab period of football at the Badger school. He captained the team one year and the season after graduation hooked up with the Packers. During his last year in college he was mentioned on several all-western and all-Big Ten mythical teams, and he is one university star who had little trouble breaking directly and successfully into the professional game...LONG TOUCHDOWN RUN: Fans like to talk about Milt's performance in the second Packer-Bear game of 1931, which the Bays won, 6 to 0. Mike Michalske hooked off a pass and started on a long touchdown jaunt, but he was well cornered halfway down the field when Gantenbein dove into the opposition with a beautiful block, making the touchdown possible.


AUG 5 (Green Bay) - One month from today, on Tuesday, Sept. 5, the Green Bay Packer football squad will start official practice sessions for the upcoming NFL season. To celebrate the occasion, Coach E.L. Lambeau today announced that Henry (Hank) Bruder, popular halfback of the Packers during the past two seasons, again has signed to play with the Bays, thus bringing the 1933 squad roster to nine...NINE ARE SIGNED: Hank Bruder carries about 190 pounds into the game, and is rated as one of professional football's hardest hitting backs. He was dogged by hard luck throughout his three years at Northwestern university, being handicapped by injuries and other ailments, but upon graduation he broke directly into the pro game and made a name for himself immediately. There have been many high spots in Bruder's football career, but the one the fans remember best occurred in the Packer-New York Giant game at New York in 1931. With the Packers trailing, 10 to 7, Bruder led a fourth quarter attack which was climaxed when he caught a pass and ran through Benny Friedman for the touchdown which gave the Bays a 14 to 10 decision...USED AS REGULAR: Although Bruder's work was impressive in 1931, it was last season which saw his greatest work for Green Bay. Used as a regular and highly popular with the fans, he saw a great deal of service. Bruder is another professional star who captained his team in college. Despite his run of tough luck he persists in wearing No. 13 on the back of his jersey. He is a year-around resident of Green Bay, and will be on hand for the opening of the practice session Sept. 5.


AUG 5 (Milwaukee) - Buckets Goldenberg, former University of Wisconsin gridder, announced today he had signed a contract to play professional football with the Green Bay Packers. For the last year he has been a professional wrestler. It is expected that Goldenberg will play in the Packer line, although he may be used as a blocking back.


AUG 7 (Green Bay) - A big, husky guard from the Southwestern Conference, highly recommended, will try out with the Packers as a first year man this season, Coach E.L. Lambeau said today in announcing the signing of Lon Evans, of Texas Christian university, Fort Worth, Tex. Evans is rated as a real prize, and a notable addition to the Packer squad. He is six feet two inches tall, weighs 215 pounds, has made every all-conference team for the past two seasons and was mentioned prominently for all-America. He also won the most valuable trophy offered by his conference...WON CONFERENCE TITLES: Evans' work has been invaluable to Texas Christian during the past three seasons, and was instrumental in giving the school its conference championship last fall. His favorite position is left guard, and he is an expert in pulling out on passes and runs. During all his service with Texas Christian, Evans never has been injured and is used to playing 60 minutes in every game. He likes it best when the going is rough. Several clubs in the National league have been dickering for his services, but he informed Coach Lambeau that he has been anxious for several years to play with the Bays...TENTH ON ROSTER: Evans is the tenth Packers to be signed definitely, although Charles (Buckets) Goldenberg, Wisconsin star, and Ernie Pinckert of Southern California are on the string.


AUG 8 (Green Bay) - One of the greatest offensive center ever developed in the Southwestern conference, Noble Atkins of Texas Christian, will join his teammate, Lon Evans, when the Green Bay Packers start practice Sept. 5. Announcement that Atkins has signed his 1933 contract, his first with the Packers, was made today by Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau. Atkins is 24 years old, measures a half inch more than six feet, and scales 210 pounds. He played against Hank Bruder and Milt Gantenbein, now of the Packers, in the East-West game on the Pacific coast in 1930, when the West won, 3 to 0. His sterling play is well remembered by the two veteran Packers...COACHED TWO YEARS: Atkins has coached for the past two seasons at Texas Christian university, Fort Worth, Tex., and this is his first venture into professional football. He captained the university team his senior year. Although his greatest notice came from his offensive work, the Texas veteran also is rated a great man on defense. He received prominent mention on all-conference teams during his entire career at college, and his work is still recalled by Southwestern conference sports writers. He is the eleventh man to sign a Packer contract.


AUG 9 (Green Bay) - Ben Smith, 210-pound wingman of Alabama university's 1932 Crimson Ride, will demonstrate the speed and effectiveness which have won him wide recognition throughout the south as a member of the Green Bay Packers' 1933 squad, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. Because of Smith's bulk and height - he measures six feet two inches - the Alabama veteran is expected to make good without difficulty in professional football. He played three years of varsity football at Alabama, was a willing worker at all times and seldom was injured. Smith comes to the Packers highly recommended by Coach Frank Thomas of Alabama U...ONE OF BEST: "He's one of the greatest ends I ever coached," Thomas wrote. "As a matter of fact, insofar as football is concerned, I would rate him a better end than Tom Nash of Georgia." The 210-pounder was a dash man on the Alabama track squad and played varsity basketball. His speed and experience in ball handling gained from these two sports made him a terror on pass receiving and a hard man to bring down in the open field...PLAYS EITHER WING: Smith plays either end and did some point after touchdown kicking for the Crimson Tide. He is the twelfth Packer to sign his 1933 contract.


AUG 10 (Green Bay) - Another veteran of the Southern conference honor roll, Buster Mott, 195-pound halfback of Georgia University, has signed a contract to play football with the Green Bay Packers this fall, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. Mott's place on the honor roll was won through three years of varsity competition at Georgia, during which he was rated an exceptionally valuable backfield men both offensively and defensively. Coach Harry Mehre and Assistant Coach Rex Enright have recommended Mott highly, Enright's O.K. bearing particular weight because of his previous service with the Packers...NOW PLAYING BASEBALL: Mott is an all-around athlete. He played baseball at Georgia university and at present is playing in the Piedmont league, West Virginia. He measures an even six feet. The new Packers is certain to strengthen the Bays' aerial attack, as he did most of Georgia's passing during his years on the southern team. His outstanding feat during his college days came in the Georgia-N.Y.U. game in 1931, when he ran back the opening kickoff of the second half 94 yards for a touchdown. Georgia won the game, 7 to 5. Mott is the fourteenth Packer to sign his 1933 contract.


AUG 11 (Green Bay) - Arthur (Red) Bultman, 199-pound center and one of the few Green Bay gridiron products to play on the Green Bay Packer team in 1932, has signed his second Packer contract, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. Except for Coach Lambeau and Arnold Herber, Bultman was the only member of last year's squad who received his gridiron start in Green Bay. He is rated one of the greatest centers turned out of West high school, and he played great ball for Marquette, from which institution he graduated in 1931. Red captained the Golden Avalanche team his senior year...SIGNED WITH BROOKLYN: In the spring of 1931 Bultman was turned loose from the Milwaukee university, and that fall he signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers. He picked plenty of gridiron sense during the season and in 1932 he joined the Packers, playing all that fall for his hometown. Bultman is a splendid team worker and a topnotch center. What he lacks in beef he makes up in aggressiveness, passing the ball accurately and following the oval at all times. Often he gets down the field as fast as the ends. When Barrager was injured in practice before the Giant game in New York last fall, Bultman saw a lot of action, and came through nicely. He played 60 minutes of fast football on a frozen Stapleton field, and aided the Packers materially in snatching victory by means of a last half rally. His brilliant defensive play in that game drew many favorable comments from the New York sport scribes. With the redhead in the fold, the Packer squad now numbers 15.


AUG 12 (Green Bay) - Arnold Herber, one of the most discussed players in the NFL last season, who was mentioned on several all-professional teams, has signed his 1933 contract with the Green Bay Packers, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. Herber's fine passing, punting and slashing line attacks won him outstanding comment last fall, and he will start his third season with the Packers as a halfback with All-American possibilities. Moreover, he is a Green Bay product, having graduated from West high school in the days of Quinn and Radick...PLAYED AT MADISON: Herber entered the University of Wisconsin after leaving West, and starred one season in Madison in freshmen football. He then headed west, playing the following year for Regis college in Colorado. The next season found him attempting to break into professional football, and last year he definitely came into his own with a sensational record for the Bays. Herber is regarded as on a par with Friedman in the passing game, and he has few equals in punting. Last year his long boots pulled the Packers out of many a hole, and his return is certain to be regarded highly by Green Bay football fans...16 ON ROSTER: Arnold weighs 205 pounds and is unusually fast for such a hefty player. He is the 16th Packer to sign his 1933 contract.


AUG 15 (Green Bay) - Claude Perry, known as one of the most aggressive linemen of the Packers' championship era, has signed for his seventh season with Green Bay, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. Perry , who tips the scales at 201 pounds and plays either tackle, was a member of the Packer championship teams in 1929 and 1930. In midseason of 1931 he was loaned to Brooklyn, where he played fast, consistent football, and in 1932 he returned to Green Bay. Claude joined the Packers immediately after graduation. He was an all-southern selection at Alabama, and he promptly made a name for himself on the professional gridiron. He is good at rushing passers and punters and always plays without benefit of headgear. Perry lives in Green Bay most of the year, but spends two or three months in the south during the winter. He is the seventeenth Packer to sign his 1933 contract.


AUG 16 (Green Bay) - The signed contract of Rudy Comstock, veteran of the NFL, who will begin his third season with the Green Bay Packers, has been turned into Coach E.L. Lambeau, he announced today. Comstock is the 18th Packer to sign thus far. The stocky guard, who plays either side of the line, played high school football in Oklahoma, and won all-eastern honors at Georgetown university. After leaving school he starred one season with the Buffalo Bisons, then switched to the Philadelphia (Frankford) Yellowjackets for three years...FIXTURE WITH PACKERS: The following season he was with the New York Giants, and after playing for that team in 1929 and 1930 he joined the Packers, where he since has been a fixture. Comstock is a steel worker by trade and makes his home in Bucyrus, Ohio. He is married, and the father of one child. Comstock is regarded as a handy lineman, and a great team worker. Bill Cunningham of the Boston Globe, in discussing the Packers' 21 to 0 victory over Boston last year, said that the Green Bay guard played the greatest game at his position that he, Cunningham, had ever seen. Rudy was the whole team by himself in that game.



AUG 16 (Green Bay) - In an action brought to conserve all asset of the Green Bay Football corporation until after the Supreme Court renders a decision in an appeal now before it, Frank J. Jonet, Green Bay certified public accountant, was appointed receiver of the football corporation yesterday afternoon by Circuit Judge Henry Graass. The order was issued in an action brought by Leland H. Joannes, president of the corporation, in behalf of all creditors. Selection of Mr. Jonet as receiver was made by the court without suggestion from either party. He has previously audited the corporation's books, and is thoroughly familiar with them, it was stated. The receiver's duties, according to John McHale, his attorney, will be to preserve all assets of the football corporation, receive all moneys due it, and make all disbursements. He will not interfere with the playing schedule, nor with the hiring of players and the management of the team, which will continue in the same hands as heretofore, the attorney stated...JUDGMENT SECURED: Some months ago, a judgment of $5,200 was secured against the corporation of Willard J. Bent, for injuries received from a fall from the stands at Packer game. Although the corporation carried insurance against such injuries, the insurance company has since gone into receivership and the receiver declined to assume the defense. After the trial court had found for Bent, the football corporation took an appeal to the Supreme court, which is now pending. However, since at this time of the year the corporation has no tangible assets, it could not post the customary bond pending appeal, and Bent started supplemental proceedings before William Surplice, circuit court commissioner, looking toward collection of the judgment. These proceedings would have included examination of the officers of the corporation concerning all records, contracts and other data in their possession. Publication of the terms of the contracts and other private information at this time would greatly impede the business of the corporation in arranging its season and in hiring players, and would impair the benefits brought by the Packers to the entire community, Mr. Joannes claimed in his petition...ASKS FOR APPOINTMENT: For this reason, he asked appointment of a receiver to conserve all assets of the corporation, and handle all its money, until such time as a final determination of the case should be made by the Supreme court. In the meantime, he asked that all creditors be enjoined from bringing legal action to collect their claims. An order to this effect was signed by the court late Tuesday afternoon, and Mr. Jonet was appointed receiver. He qualified today, posting bond of $10,000...STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT: Leland H. Joannes, president of the Football corporation, today made a plea for public support, and issued the following statement in connection with the receivership: "The Green Bay Football corporation is solvent and, if given a chance, will work out its present situation. Unfortunately, the insurance company which has been carrying our public liability insurance for the last twelve years and which has always been rated as a high grade concern, like many other concerns during the last few years, got into serious difficulties, leaving us without any protection in defending the lawsuit which resulted in a judgment being obtained against us. The amount of this judgment was such that we will be unable to pay it a the present time, because of two unprofitable years of operation, due not only to business conditions, but unfavorable weather which is a big factor in the game. The Packer team, an institution in Green Bay, has brought more advertising to this city, and for that matter to Wisconsin, than any other medium. In these days of stress and uncertainty, the club and the management needs more than ever the support of all of the loyal fans of this community. In a few days, the season ticket selling campaign will be underway, and while we realize that many will have to stretch a point to buy tickets this year, we are hopeful that the sale will surpass that of last season. It seems certain that the club will be a strong contender for national championship honors, and there will be plenty of thrills and excitement for the fans this fall. Let us all get behind this marvelous club and assure the continuance of professional football in Green Bay."


AUG 17 (Green Bay) - A distinct departure from opening day programs of past seasons will bring veterans of the Green Bay Packers football squad against first year men in a regular football game at City stadium Sept. 10. The contest will serve as a preliminary for the opening of the National league season against Boston, Sept. 17, and will give Green Bay fans their first opportunity to see the 1933 football machine in action...BARGAIN DAY PRICES: Bargain day prices, wide publicity given newcomers to the Packer squad, and the general all around ability of the veterans, all are expected to combine to draw a record opening day crowd. Star players of other seasons, working to keep their positions through another professional league year, will be opposed by a contingent of youngsters just out of college, seeking to establish themselves in the pro game. The opener will be played just five days after the first practice session is called Tuesday, Sept. 5. With the balmy weather which usually prevails in early September, conditions are expected to be ideal for the spectators, and the players will be working under sufficient incentive to assure a fast, lively game. Four periods of 10 minutes each will be played...SHOULD MEET FAVOR: "In using our own squad for the opening day game," said Coach E.L. Lambeau, "the Packers are attempting an innovation which should prove increasingly popular in seasons to come. Instead of spectators sitting through a runway contest, such as the 45 to 0 beating handed Grand Rapids last fall, or the 46 to 0 defeat given Oshkosh in 1930, they will be treated to four quarters of fast heady football, with two groups of men all concentrating on showing Green Bay that they deserve places on the 1933 team."...ASK CONCESSION BIDS: Bids on concessions at the City stadium for the Packer football games will close Friday, Sept. 1, at midnight, according to an announcement by the football corporation today. President L.H. Joannes, with whom the bids must be filed, urges all applicants turn in their proposals as soon as possible.


AUG 18 (Green Bay) - With the Packers' opening game scheduled for Sept. 10, there is a hum of activity in gridiron circles and the officers of the Green Bay Football corporation are preparing for their most extensive season ticket sales campaign which will be launched Monday night with a meeting of the board of directors and ticket solicitors. The Packer campaign is starting a bit later than usual this fall but Vice President G.H. Clifford, who will again be in charge of the ticket drive is confident that it will be completed on time...TICKET DEPARTMENT FUNCTIONING: The ticket department is to start functioning at once although the headquarters at the C.C.C. will not be opened until the first week in September. List of season ticket holders of other years have been compiled and solicitors will call first on the "regulars" to see if they want the same tickets they had in other years. E.A. Spachmann will again serve as the ticket department director and he has also been placed in charge of the program through which he promised to provide a "new deal" by the way of numerous features...SCHEDULES SOON CIRCULATED: The Packer pocket scheduled and the display cards featuring the home games will be circulated during the next ten days. This season an intensive drive for more out-of-town business is contemplated and it is probable that the Packer boosters will cover the state and upper Michigan as well. Joe F. Carr, president of the National league, will be here over the weekend and the Packer executives plan to confer with him on several important matters pertaining to the coming season...PETERSON SIGNS UP: A wingman who showed considerable class in games he played with the Packers last season, Les Peterson, of Texas, has signed again for 1933, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. Peterson is a six-footer, weighing 212 pounds, and has lots of fight, particularly when he gets under full steam. He is regarded as a fair pass receiver, and is excellent at taking out tackle. Les follows the ball closely and can step into a tackle position if needed. Peterson played three years of varsity football at Texas, receiving all-southern mention his senior year. He joined the Providence Steam Rollers in 1931, and came with the Packers the following fall. Before the season was over Peterson was loaned to Stapleton, but he responded to a hurry call before the Portsmouth game and was back in Green Bay togs before the end of the season. With Peterson in the fold, the rapidly growing Packer squad includes 19 men.


AUG 19 (Boston) - George (Lone Star) Dietz, coach of the Boston Redskins of the NFL, has been here since the first of the month, setting the stage for the professional gridiron season. This will be Boston's second season in the pro league and George P. Marshall, the millionaire laundry magnate who owns the club, hopes to have a more successful year than in 1932. When he signed Dietz to coach the team in place of Ludlow Wray, he told the former Haskell Indian mentor to round up the best aggregation that money could buy...LOOKS OVER PLAYERS: Dietz is trying to follow instructions. Since the middle of May he has been touring the country looking over football players, and he now has about 36 gridders under contract. As a matter of fact, several of the clubs have been caustic in their comments about Boston, as they claim Dietz has been running wild, so far as salaries are concerned. Boston has several games booked in the midwest at the start of the season, so the Redskin gridders have been ordered to report for practice at Evanston, Ill., Sept. 1. The Boston management has made arrangements to use a practice field at Northwestern university...AT GREEN BAY, SEPT. 17: The Redskins make their league debut at Green Bay, Wis., against the Packers Sunday, Sept. 17. This is the club that opened the eyes of Boston fans here last Nov. 13 when they bumped Lud Wray's outfit at Braves field, 21 to 0. The Wisconsin eleven made all their scores in the first half. There will be only a handful of the 1932 players with Boston this fall as Coach Dietz has cleaned house. Cliff Battles, Johnny Hughes, Tim MacMurdo, Horse Edwards, Bill Woodruff and Pete 


Collins are back again. Among the new gridders are Ike Frankian from Davis and Elkins, Irvin Hill, Washington, Edgar Westfall, Holy Cross and Cy Williams, Haskell. Coach Dietz long has been rated as one of the smartest football mentors in the country. His collegiate clubs were known for pulling the unexpected and his forward passing attack rates second to none in western football. This is his first year of professional football but Owner Marshall is confident that Dietz will put a winner on the field.


AUG 21 (Green Bay) - Governor A.G. Schmedeman and his executive staff will attend the opening game of the Packers here Sunday, Sept. 17, Congressman James Hughes was notified today by the governor. The invitation was extended by President Leland H. Joannes and Coach E.L. Lambeau



AUG 22 (Green Bay) - It was decided at Monday night's meeting of the Green Bay Packer corporation board of directors to lower the price on season tickets and also sell a general admission ticket to the west end stands for 75 cents. The revamped scale of prices for the season tickets follow: Box seats have been reduced from $20 to $15; the 50-yard line reserved seat sections from $15 to $12 and there will be a new group of season tickets priced at $9.00. These are regular $1.50 seats. Included in the other prices will be seats near the 30-yard line for $1.25 and $1.00...HOME GAME SCHEDULE: The new scale provides for the six National league games at home which are as follows:

Sept. 17 - Boston Redskins

Sept. 24 - Chicago Bears

Oct. 1 - New York Giants

Oct. 8 - Portsmouth Spartans

Oct. 15 - Pittsburgh Pirates

Oct. 29 - Philadelphia Quakers

The inter-club contest between the Packer veterans and recruits will be staged at City stadium on Sunday, Sept. 10. There will be no reserved seats for this contest and the "bargain day" admission prices will be 50 cents for adults and 25 cents for children...DISCUSSES PRICE CUT: In discussing the revamped ticket price schedule, President L.H. Joannes in addressing the board of directors and ticket salesman at Monday night's meeting said: "We have decided to cut the prices of the season tickets and put in a lower general admission charge in hopes of greatly increasing the crowds at the Packer games."...PRICES LOWEST HERE: "It is well to remember that professional football in Green Bay is staged at lower prices than in any other city in the circuit. As a matter of fact, some of the teams that play here on a split gate percentage have complained bitterly about our price scale, claiming that it is far below par. This year the class of football offered to the Packer fans at home will be second to none in the country. We have booked the best teams in the league and in some instances have been forced to boost the guarantees to bring these high powered elevens here. Never in gridiron history here have we ever had such a high class opening attraction as the Boston Braves. It is the general opinion in pre-football circles that this Boston club may be the squad to beat for the championship."...BEARS HERE SEPT. 24: "After the Boston game, comes the clash with the Bears on Sept. 24, and this Chicago club has always been an "ace" attraction. The New York Giants are scheduled for Oct. 1. A week later, Oct. 8, the Portsmouth Spartans play here and we are hopeful this will be one of our sellout attractions. A new club in the National league, the Pittsburgh Pirates, is booked here on Oct. 15, and on Oct. 29, the 

Packers will complete their home schedule with a game against the Philadelphia Quakers. This outfit, coached by Lud Wray, former University of Pennsylvania mentor, promises to furnish keen competition. The Packer schedule is the best home outline in the National league. As a matter of fact when Joe F. Carr, president of the circuit, was here over the weekend, he complimented officers of the Football club on the games booked for home, adding that he expected Green Bay to set a new high peak in attendance figures."...NO PREMIUM ATTACHED: "This year we are selling the season tickets on a straight game basis without any premium attached. For instance, the $2 seats. Last season, we had seven games at home and this included the non-league contest with the Grand Rapids, Mich., eleven. The $2 season ticket price was $15. This year the $2 season ticket price is $12 for six games. On Sept. 10, we will have an inter-club contest. Season tickets are not good for this game as there are no reserved seats. It will be a first-come-first-served with the tickets, good anywhere in the City stadium selling for but a half a dollar. 1933 promises to be a crucial year for Packer football in Green Bay as the corporation must have increased financial support in the way of a greatly enlarged ticket sale to carry on. However, we are confident that the thousands of Packer fans will put their shoulder to the wheel and help us continue in the postgraduate gridiron game."...MEET AGAIN FRIDAY: Vice-president Gerald F. Clifford, who is in active charge of the season ticket sale, has called another meeting of the of the directors and salesman for Friday night. The clubs needs some additional solicitors and during the week. Clifford expects to increase his ranks. The sales campaign will get underway actively on Saturday and in the meantime some of the directors and salesmen are checking off their call lists and getting repeat orders lined up.


AUG 22 (Green Bay) - Hurdis McCrary, one of Georgia's famous backs from a championship era at the southern university, and a veteran of Green Bay's professional title days, has signed again to play with the Packers, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. He is the twentieth player to sign his 1933 contract. McCrary will be starting his fifth year with the Packers when he steps out for initial practice two weeks from today. He was fresh from college when he joined the Bays in 1929, and served with all three national championship teams. Indiana is Hurdis' home state, but he now is a year-around resident of Green Bay...HAS SPEED TO BURN: Hurd tips the scales at 206 pounds, and measures an even six feet. Although he is big and powerful, he has speed to burn, and is considered one of the fastest men on the squad. He plays either fullback or halfback, and carried the ball well in the open field. Coaches of other National league teams have rated McCrary the speediest men playing the pro game. McCrary is married, and the father of two children. During

the offseason in Green Bay, he manages a filling station, being one of the Packers who have settled down in their adopted city. Within the next 10 days the membership of what is expected to be another strong professional team will begin assembling in Green Bay. Coach Lambeau expects the vanguard of the 1933 squad to arrive soon after Sept. 1, augmenting the small force which has remained her throughout the summer.


AUG 22 (Green Bay) - Without Green Bay in the National league, the circuit probably could exist, but it would be without the most colorful team in modern history, if you would like the opinion of Joseph F. Carr, president of the NFL, who was a Green Bay visitor over the weekend in the interest of organized baseball. Carr gave us many slants on the National league, in the course of an hour's discussion of the sport in his hotel room at the Beaumont. Friendly, frank and well informed on every branch of sport, we found him willing to answer every question. Occasionally his answers were qualified with a desire to not be quoted, but he dodged nothing. "Wherever football is played, Green Bay is known," the president commented. "The other day I spent a few hours in a little town in Arkansas and sat talking with a station master while waiting for a train. He asked where I was headed, and when informed that my next stop would be Green Bay, he became quite alert and wanted to know what prospects were for another winning football team in that city. From that little Arkansas town to New York, fans watch with interest the play of the Green Bay Packers. I've never seen a team capture the popular fancy of fans, as this club has done. It has been remarkable the way the fame of your team has spread throughout the country." Carr believes that the league will be stronger this year than ever before. He said that by splitting the circuit into eastern and western divisions, considerable sectional interest will be developed. He also looks for football, as played in the National league this year, to be the most wide-open brand of play ever seen. "With the rule that allows a team to pass from any point behind the line of scrimmage, there should be many more passes in the average game," he said. "Small coaches will work out many new formations and plays with this rule in effect." (Incidentally, coaches of the all-star eastern and western teams that will clash in Chicago this week picked up a point from the pros, as they also have adopted the rule that permits teams to pass from any point behind the line of scrimmage.) Carr thinks that by moving the goal posts back to the end of the playing fields, drop and placekicks will return to favor and tie games will be eliminated to a great extent. He also believes that the new pass rule will help cut down the number of ties, as it will bring about more scoring. According to reports from Ohio, Portsmouth looks for its best year, the president indicated. He said that he had received word from the Spartan leaders that the advance sale of tickets, begun last week, is far ahead of what it was last year. Addition of Cincinnati to the circuit will increase interest in the Ohio section, he believes.



AUG 23 (Green Bay) - Clyde van Sickle, husky Arkansas university guard, who has seen some service with the Packers, but considerably more with other teams in the professional grid game, has been signed again by Green Bay, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. Van Sickle joined the Packers at the beginning of the 1932 training season. He looked good in practice, and ever better in his one competitive appearance during the Green Bay-Grand Rapids game, but he fell before the first cut of the season, when Coach Lambeau found it necessary to pare down his squad...THREE YEARS ON VARSITY: Van Sickle weighs 215 pounds, stands six feet one and a half inches, and is 26 years old. He played right guard for three years with the Arkansas varsity, making an outstanding record among the tough university and college teams in the area of the Ozarks. In his senior year he was selected on several all-southern mythical teams, and was mentioned prominently as an All-America candidate. The Packers and Philadelphia Yellowjackets bid for Van Sickle after his graduation, but he signed in 1930 with the Jackets, and played with that team throughout the season. In 1931 he was back at Arkansas as line coach. Van Sickle picked up some reputation as a professional wrestler. He is big, fast and powerful, and is known for his ability to pull out of the line and run interference...PLAYED WITH MEMPHIS: When Van Sickle left the Packers late last September, he landed a berth with the Memphis Professionals and built up quite a reputation as a center flanker in southern pro circles. This Memphis eleven met a number of National league squads and Van Sickle starred in nearly every game. He was particularly brilliant against the Portsmouth Spartans and Chicago Cardinals. Van Sickle is the 21st Packer to sign his 1933 contract and Coach Lambeau expects the big southerner to take Joe Zeller's place. Zeller landed a coaching job in southern Indiana, and decided to pass up the postgraduate game.


AUG 24 (Green Bay) - Clark Hinkle, backfield sensation of the Green Bay Packers last season, will arrive here Friday, Sept. 1, four days before the opening of the Packers' practice season, Coach E.L. Lambeau announced today. His signed contract was received in the mail today. The return of Hinkle is certain to be hailed by Packer fans, as the former Bucknell fullback, high scorer of the east in 1931, was highly popular here during his first season in professional football. Big, fast and powerful, with a flair for the spectacular, his play won him strong mention on all-America pro teams during

his first year in the post graduate game...SCORED WINNING TOUCHDOWN: Green Bay fans never will forget the last quarter of the Packer-Portsmouth game early last season, when with the Bays trailing and apparently beaten under the battering of Spartan backs, Hinkle broke through the line for a touchdown dash which won the game, 15 to 10. The large Packers crowd has a delirious celebration on the spot which promised Hinkle a permanent home in Green Bay. Clark played three years of varsity ball at Bucknell, captaining the squad his senior year. He is a triple threat fullback, being great at line bucking, a good passer and a fine kicker. His defensive work is flawless, and he is rated as one of the hardest tacklers in the National league...ARRIVES WITH MONNETT: Hinkle checks in a week from tomorrow with Bob Monnett, former Michigan State star who has signed with the Packers, and who has been visiting with Hinkle at Toronto, Ohio. Hinkle has been working on a construction crew at his home city and recently narrowly escaped serious injury when his car was demolished by a steel truck. The Packer star received only a bruised arm in the crash. Coach Lambeau left for Chicago today, where he will witness tonight the East-West football game at Soldier Field, Chicago. Joe Kurth, Notre Dame, Packer recruit, will play for the East. The Packer coach will interview several players at the game and may sign up some more promising new material.


AUG 25 (Green Bay) - Officials of the Green Bay Packer football corporation are working hard to get the stage set for what promises to be one of the most successful seasons that the Packers have ever experienced on the postgraduate gridiron. The board of directors and an enlarged force of season ticket salesmen meet tonight to get their assignment lists from Vice President Gerald F. Clifford, who will again direct the campaign. Since Monday night's meeting a number of new solicitors have volunteered to help the football cause. This is encouraging to Chairman Clifford, who has long felt that the Packer drives would be more successful if additional men could be brought into play...TICKET REQUESTS ARRIVE: E.A. Spachmann, manager of the ticket department, reports that requests for seats at the home games are arriving in every mail. These letters will be filled in order of their receipt and soon after the main ticket office in the Columbus Community club is opened about Sept. 1, they will be sent out. From comments heard about town, the action of the Football corporation in reducing the price of the season tickets and cutting the general admission charge has met with favor. The 75-cent seats in the west end stands should be popular as many fans camp there regularly. In 1933 nearly all of the scoring in the Packer game was completed at this end of the gridiron...PLAYING FIELD O.K.: The stands at the City stadium will be checked over next week and a crew of men will make the needed repairs. Groundskeepers report the playing field in good condition. The turf has been kept freshened all season by continual use of water, and some of the spots sodded last spring have taken hold nicely. Practice will start a week from Tuesday, Sept. 5, and Bud Jorgenson, who will again serve as property manager, has started to shake the mothballs out of the gridiron equipment which has been stored away since the Packer team returned from the Honolulu jaunt last winter. As in former seasons, the Packers will have their dressing rooms at the Columbus club, and do their practicing at Joannes park.


AUG 26 (Philadelphia) - Harry O'Boyle, former member of the Green Bay Packers, has signed a contract to play with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Quaker City member of the NFL, it was announced here today. O'Boyle, erstwhile Notre Dame backfield star, will join the Eagles in time for their first workout here next week. He was given his release by the Packers.


AUG 28 (Green Bay) - Harry Newman, the brilliant Michigan quarterback, will be seen in action with the New York Giants this fall, promises to be one of the sensations of the NFL, according to Coach E.L. Lambeau of the Green Bay Packers, who attended the East-West all star football game in Chicago Thursday night. "Newman looked every inch a star," said Coach Lambeau. "The former Michigan quarterback was the outstanding player on the field. He showed good generalship in directing his team, passed superbly and was a shifty runner in the open field."...GOOD AS FRIEDMAN: "To my notion, Newman is every bit as good as Benny Friedman and we all remember what a sensation Benny Friedman was when he launched his career in our circuit. The Giants made a 'ten strike' when they hooked Newman to a contract and he should put the needed spark in that great New York club. Newman should be at the peak of his game when the Giants face the Packers here on Sunday, Oct. 1. It will be a treat for the fans to see the former Michigan star cut loose with his triple threat exhibition." Coach Lambeau was well satisfied with the way Joe Kurth, Notre Dame all-American, took care of his tackle position. Kurth, who will play with the Packers this fall, did everything that was asked of him. Kurth was often down the field as fast as the ends and he was on top of the play every minute...MANDERS AND RONZANI: In Manders and Ronzani, the Chicago Bears have picked up a pair of sterling men, Coach Lambeau said. Manders has a sore leg but hobbled into the game to kick one goal after touchdown. Ronzani, the pride of Marquette, played splendid ball. The professional forward passing rule which allows passing from any point back of the scrimmage line worked out well, according to Coach Lambeau, and it greatly added to the open field exhibition. This free tossing speeds up the attack and allows the offensive to pull the unexpected at any minute. The new regulation which eliminates sideline out of bounds plays worked smoothly, in the opinion of the Green Bay mentor. "This change in the code eliminates a lot of the technical delays, because, when the ball is within three or four yards of the sidelines, the official immediately moves it in ten yards without any lapses," Lambeau added.



AUG 30 (Green Bay) - The 1933 football season is just around the corner. On Friday, Sept. 1, nearly all the squads in the NFL will start practice. Coach E.L. Lambeau and his Packers are to assemble Sept. 5 although it is possible that some of the early arrivals will start booting the ball around Sunday. The Chicago Bears will drill at South Bend, Ind., and President George S. Halas, who also is to double in the coaching role, will have about 35 candidates on hand. The Bear management has hopes of repeating with another pennant winner this fall. The Bruins will have nearly all the veterans back in togs and a flock of new men, including Ronzani of Marquette and Jack Manders, the Minnesota sensation. Link Lyman, a great tackle of several years back, has deserted his ranch and will play with the Bears again. Dr. D.J. Jones and his Chicago Cardinals will stay under cover at a Michigan summer report for a two week period, starting Sunday. With Jim Bausch, Gil Berry and several other prominent college stars, the Cardinals hope to be among the top notchers in the National league this fall. Mike McNally, Tim Moynihan, Walter Holmer, Bull Kiesling and Chuck Kassel will again carry on for the Cards...NEWMAN WITH GIANTS: The New York Giants will start their training Friday at Pompton Lakes, N.J. Tim Mara, the Giants' owner, has gone to lots of expense this fall to put a winner on the field. The New Jersey resort is the same spot where Tony Canzoneri is training for his title go with Tony Ross. The Giants will have Newman, the great Michigan quarterback, as their headliner this fall, and he will get plenty of support from Dale Moran, Mel Hein, Morris Badgro, Heavy Feather, Bill Owen and a flock of other vets. The Brooklyn Dodgers, under the new leadership of Chris Cagle and his associates, promise to do thing on the post graduate gridiron. The Dodger management has cleaned house thoroughly, and there will be about 10 new faces in the battle front. Shipwreck Kelly, who was a Giant star last fall until stricken with rheumatism, will be an ace in the Brooklyn backfield. Ludlow Wray, head of the Philadelphia Football corporation, is now at Atlantic City, making the arrangements for the Quakers' training season. The Phillies report Sunday and they stay at the seashore for two weeks. Some 30 odd players are under contract, among whom are: Marcus of Temple; Roberts of Georgia; Gentry of Oklahoma; Prisco of Rutgers; O'Boyle of Notre Dame; and Pape of Iowa...PITT SQUAD ON HAND: The Pittsburgh squad is now reporting at Mineral Springs, Pa., and some 40 gridders will be on hand by Friday. Art Rooney, coach of the Pirates, is rounding up a great machine. The Pirates will play several night games early in the season at home before playing the regular league games on Sunday. Among the players now under contract with Pittsburgh are Elmer Schwartz and Mickey Erickson, a pair of former Chicago Cards; Howard Letsinger, Clarence Janeck, Abe Marcovsky, Ed Kesler, Bill Sortet and Gilmer Robinson. Dr. M. Scott Kearns, president of the Cincinnati Football association, has issued orders to 35 candidates to report at Paducah, Ky., next Wednesday. The Redland gridiron executive has been touring the country for the last six weeks and thinks he as the material for a winner in the National league. Mike Palm, a veteran Penn State quarterback, and Hugh Jolley, veteran professional lineman, will share the coaching duties. Among the players signed at Jim Ballard, Nelson Hurst, Joe Moore, Homer Reynolds, Jake Wilson and Aaron Franklin...PORTSMOUTH IN TRAINING: Under 


the direction of Potsy Clark, Portsmouth has already started gunning for a National league bunting. Harry S. Snyder, president of the Spartans, has been entertaining about a dozen of the players since the first of the week in Portsmouth and the remainder of the squad will be on hand Sunday. John Schneller, Wisconsin star, is among the new gridders with Portsmouth. The Boston Redskins, with one of the greatest aggregations of football players ever rounded together, start practice Friday at the Northwestern stadium in Evanston, Ill. Business manager Dennis Shea and Coach Lone Star Dietz have been in the Wildcats' community since Monday setting the stage for the practice sessions.


AUG 31 (Green Bay) - The Packer season ticket drive was speeded up at Wednesday night's meeting of the board of directors and the volunteer solicitors. A number of new workers put in appearances and Vice-President Gerald F. Clifford, who is in charge of the campaign, is confident that with the increased interest on the part of the salesmen, he will have enough men available in the next two weeks to cover the city and neighboring towns. Some 20-odd football boosters sat in at the meeting and all were given long lists of calls on which reports will be filed at another session Friday night. Duplicates of these lists are in the hands of the Football corporation executives and there will be a double check back on every prospective customers...REGULARS ARE BACK: Early returns show that a number of regular season ticket holders will again occupy their usual seats at City stadium. Some of these gridiron enthusiasts, taking advantage of the reduced season ticket prices, are purchasing additional seats. President L.H. Joannes, who presided at the conference, pointed out to the ticket sellers and directors that the sales campaign must be speeded up to a successful climax within the next ten days. He urged that all of the campaigners report regularly as those in charge of the drive are rounding up new prospects daily and they must be contacted immediately. "To date the drive has been fairly successful," said President Joannes, "but there is a lot of work ahead and it is up to the football directors and ticket salesmen to hustle every minute until the season opens. Our reduced season ticket prices are meeting with favor. Box seat holders who paid $20 last season can get their same reservations for $15 this fall. The $2 midfield reserved seats, back of the boxed, has been cut from $15 to $12 while the $1.50 section seats which were formally priced at $12, are now selling for $9."...MEETS ALL POCKETBOOKS: "Any fan wanting season tickets in the $1.25 or $1.00 sections will be also taken care of for $7.50 or $6 respectively. We think that with our wide range of prices, the Football corporation is in a position to meet every size of pocketbook. This is a crucial year for the Packers from a financial point of view. Last season we suffered some heavy losses and it is up to the fans to support the club to the limit this fall if they want professional football to be carried on in Green Bay in future years. Our season ticket drive is being watched throughout the state and upper Michigan as well. Many are wondering if the Bay will come through and it is up to all of us to tackle this drive with a 'do or die' spirit and show Wisconsin that Green Bay is still very much sold on big time football."


SEPT 1 (Columbus, OH) - The 1933 football season of the NFL will open Wednesday, Sept. 13, when Cincinnati and Pittsburgh, two newcomers in the circuit, get into action on the latter team's gridiron, according to the official scheduled announced today by Joe F. Carr, president of the group. The real opening, however, will take place Sunday, Sept. 17, when four teams meet. Cincinnati will play at Portsmouth and Boston opens at Green Bay. From then on, the schedule continues each Sunday with several weekend games until December 10. Several nocturnal contests will be played at Pittsburgh and Philadelphia as Sunday football will be prohibited in these cities, as least until after the election in November when a proposal to repeal the blue laws will be submitted to the electorate. Games have been scheduled at these places on Sunday, Nov. 12 in anticipation of the repeal. For the first time the ten club circuit has been divided into Eastern and Western divisions for the purpose of intensifying rivalries. Clubs in each division during the regular season will meet teams in the other division and at the conclusion of the regular season the sectional leaders will meet for the league championship.


SEPT 1 (Green Bay) - Al Sarafiny, three years varsity center at St. Edwards' college, Boswell, Tex., has accepted terms with the Green Bay Packers and will be on hand for the opening practice next Tuesday. The new center lives in Iron River, Wis., where he is associated with a lumbering concern. Sarafiny tips the beam at 230 pounds and is two inches over six feet in height...THREE YEARS ON VARSITY: He played varsity football at St. Edward's in 1929, 1930 and 1931. Last fall Sarafiny served an assistant coach at the Texas institution but the call of active competition on the gridiron was too strong this year and, after negotiating with several of the National league clubs, decided to cast his lot with the Packers. Al Rose, Packer end, and Fuzzy Douglas, the Kaukauna pitcher who is a baseball coach at Baylor U in Texas, both had a good word for Sarafiny and their recommendations to Coach E.L. Lambeau played a prominent part in the contract proceedings...PRAISED BY ROSE: "Sarafiny is big and tough," said Rose. "I played against him in 1929 and 1930. He always gave us plenty of trouble. Sarafiny charges like a bull and he is a savage tackler. I think the big fellow should make the grade with our club. The new Packer is the 23rd to sign his contract. Coach Lambeau intends to talk to several of his unsigned gridders over the weekend and expects to have them signed before practice gets underway Sept. 5. Bud Jorgenson, the property man, is getting things set at the C.C.C. training quarters. Equipment for 30 gridders will be available for use in the opening drill.


SEPT 2 (Green Bay) - Lavern Dilweg, one of the greatest ends on the professional gridiron, has signed his contract with the Packers, according to an announcement by Coach E.L. Lambeau. The Green Bay pilot also reported that he had come to terms with Paul Young, varsity center for three years at Oklahoma. This will be Dilweg's seventh year with Green Bay. After playing all-American football at Marquette, Dilweg served one season with the Milwaukee Badgers and he has been here since that time. While on the Packer squad, Dilweg reached the peak of his gridiron career and his fame as a wingman is known from coast to coast...HOST OF FRIENDS HERE: Dilweg is a resident of Green Bay. He practices law and is a member of a prominent legal firm. Lavvie has been fairly active in civic affairs and he has a host of friends in the community, all of whom will welcome the news that he again will be back in togs. Coach Lambeau figures he made a "ten strike" in signing Young, Oklahoma center. Young is a giant in size, weighing about 225 pounds and is 6 feet 3 inches tall. The Oklahoma center had not planned to play professional football as he had an oil field job but he decided to take a leave of absence and try his hand at the postgraduate game. Buster Ham, writing on "Football in Oklahoma" in Spalding's 1933 guide, had this say about Young: "The University of Oklahoma enjoyed exceptional success. They had to overcome the handicaps of a woefully unsatisfactory spring practice and a shortage of material. However, Lewie Hardage and Bo Rowland, the coaches, made the most of what they had to work with, principally a great defensive center in Paul Young and a remarkable kicker and passer in Bob Dunlap."...BARRAGER WON'T REPORT: When Young's wire of acceptance arrived it took a lot of worry off Coach Lambeau's shoulders as he had received word from Noble Atkins, Texas Christian center, saying that he would not report as he had landed a coaching job in Texas. Then to make matters worse, Nate Barrager, veteran center, returned his contract unsigned, stating that his position with a Hollywood movie concern looked better to him than the Green Bay offer. Lambeau now has 25 players on the line and hopes to come to terms with Verne Lewellen, veteran halfback, before practice starts on Tuesday. Cal Hubbard is umpiring in the Western league and will not be here until about Sept. 15. The big tackle never signs a contract until he arrives for the season. Halfback Johnny Blood was last heard from on the west coast and he is believed to be en route to Green Bay. The Packer coach is trying to close several deals for players with other National league clubs and some important announcements can be expected about the middle of the week.


SEPT 2 (Green Bay) - Mike Michalske, veteran Bay guard, signed his contract early this afternoon after a conference with Coach Lambeau. This will be Michalske's fifth season with the Green Bay eleven. Immediately after signing his contract, Michalske left for Cleveland, where he was called by the serious illness of his sister. He plans to return here late next week.



SEPT 5 (Green Bay) - Perspiring freely under a blazing sun, the Green Bay Packers ran through their first practice session at Joannes park this morning before a crowd of 500 fans. Veterans and new men alike ran through signals, limbered up with passing, kicking and running drills and posed for pictures. They worked out for more than two hours, despite the heat and many displayed considerable ability. Coach E.L. Lambeau had a squad of 23 for the first drill. The only veterans missing were Mike Michalske, Verne Lewellen, Clark Hinkle, Johnny Blood and Cal Hubbard. Michalske is expected back in Green Bay late this week. Lewellen has not as yet signed a contract and Blood, Hinkle and Hubbard are expected within the next few days...TWO NEW CENTERS: Among the new men at center were Al Sarafiny, St. Edwards, Tex., and Paul Young, Oklahoma. Sarafiny is a big, powerful youth with shoulders of a titan. Young is tall and rangy and did some excellent passing. Norm Greeney of Notre Dame and Lon Evans, Texas Christian, were new guards who worked out in the first drill. Both are broad-shouldered and stocky and look like they can go. Joe Kurth, tall and well built, worked at one of the tackle positions. Jess Quatse, from Pittsburgh, also reported for a like post. He is fast and big. At the ends the only new man was Ben Smith, Alabama. Smith is six feet, five inches tall, fast, and a good pass receiver. He caught everything thrown to him today. In the backfield, new men included Bob Monnett, Buckets Goldenberg and Buster Mott of Georgia. Monnett is stocky with broad shoulders and a fine body. Mott is taller than Monnett, but probably not quite so heavy. Goldenberg is the huskiest of the new backfield men with mammoth shoulders and powerful legs...VAN SICKLE IS BACK: Clyde Van Sickle, who played tackle here for awhile last year before he was traded, reported again and showed form. Claude Perry, also a veteran, was back again. Lavvie Dilweg, Milt Gantenbein, Al Rose and Lester Peterson, who played with Green Bay's team last year, reported again and looked trim. All are ends. At guards Rudy Comstock and Whitey Woodin were the only veterans working out. Arthur Bultman was back for work at his center position. Backfield veterans who reported included Roger Grove, Wuert Englemann, Hank Bruder, Arnold Herber and Hurdis McCrary.


SEPT 5 (Green Bay) - The Packer ticket office in the Columbus Community club opened today with E.A. Spachmann in charge. With the inter-club contest scheduled for this Sunday and the Boston Braves coming here Sept. 17, there is plenty of action in football circles these days as the executives are working overtime to get things lined up. A number of the season solicitors took advantage of the weekend holiday to call on many prospects and, according to G.H. Clifford, vice-president, who is in charge of the drive, the reports are much more encouraging...MEET WEDNESDAY NIGHT: The football directors and season ticket salesmen meet again Wednesday night for another checkup. For the next ten days there will be daily meetings while spokesmen for the Packers will be busy broadcasting and addressing service clubs and other gatherings. President


L.H. Joannes talked over WHBY on Saturday night while Sunday morning, Dr. W.W. Kelly took time from his NRA campaign to broadcast in behalf of football. Both speakers stressed the need of an unusual large ticket sale this season and urged their hearers to give the Packers the support they need to keep Green Bay on the professional football map.


SEPT 6 (Green Bay) - Executives of the Packer Football club are counting on a good sized turnout at the City stadium, Sunday afternoon, when Coach E.L. Lambeau's men make their first appearance of the season in an inter-club combat with the yearlings facing the veterans. The kickoff is at 2 p.m. sharp and Ecky Erdlitz, Oshkosh, a National league official, will referee. "Bargain Day" prices will prevail. The Football corporation has cut the admission prices to 50 cents for adults while youngsters will be admitted for a quarter. It will be first come, first served as there will not be any reserved seat tickets sold...TWO SECTIONS SET ASIDE: However, Sections F and G on the south side grandstand and the box seats in front will be held for those who have purchased season tickets. Only holders of the season tickets are to be admitted to these sections. A staff of ushers will be on hand to patrol this part of the big stand. Season ticket holders only have to show their tickets to the chief ushers at the grandstand aisles and they can occupy any seat they want to Sunday. This inter-club game is something new in Packer football history. In former years the Green Bay squad met non-league teams and the majority of these contests were so one sided that the spectators always lost interest before the final whistle blew...REAL FOOTBALL BATTLE: According to Coach Lambeau, Sunday's game will be a real football battle from start to finish. The yearlings, or first year players, naturally, will be giving their best to make a good showing against the "old boys" while the Packer veterans don't intend to let any of the recruits show them up. It is likely that a few veterans will be seen in the yearlings' lineup. White jerseys have been ordered for the new men while the veterans will wear the usual togs...WAITING FOR HINKLE: Coach Lambeau is awaiting the arrival of Clark Hinkle, young fullback. The Packer coach got a letter from Clark saying that he would be in here not later than Thursday and that he would be ready to step into action immediately. Mike Michalske is expected back from Cleveland tomorrow. He was called to the Forest City by the serious illness of his sister. Johnny Blood is still unaccounted for. The "vagabond halfback" is reported en route, but nothing has been heard from him since he was in California about a month ago. However, Johnny has the habit of pulling the unexpected, and he is apt to check in here at any hour. The Western league finishes the baseball season over the weekend, and Cal Hubbard, who has been umpiring in that circuit, will head for Green Bay at once...SALESMEN MEET TONIGHT: The season ticket sellers and board of directors of the Football corporation will meet tonight. Reports will be filed on ticket orders and new assignment lists are to be handed out. The session starts at 7:45 p.m. Tonight's gathering promises to be the best of the campaign as a number of new volunteers will be on hand to take a hand in the drive. The groups of salesmen is being enlarged daily as the solicitors start down the final lap. Results to date are fair, according to President L.H. Joannes. However, the president is hopeful that with additional manpower now in the ranks the season ticket sale will nearly reach the desired quota. "We are still far from our goal," said Joannes. "But a lot of interest is being shown and the workers are quite enthusiastic. This is Green Bay's opportunity to show if it wants professional football continued here in coming years and I am hopeful that the answer is yes."


SEPT 6 (Chicago) - Charles W. Bidwell, one of the country's most widely known sportsmen, yesterday purchased the Chicago Cardinals professional football team from Doctor David L. Jones, who has had control of the club since 1929. The price was in excess of $50,000. Mr. Bidwell, who is part owner of the Chicago Bears, will dispose of his interests in that organization immediately. Dr. Jones, who will serve as president of the Cardinals for this season, sold the club so that he could devote more time to his duties as city physician. "I regret to withdraw from the ranks of professional football owners," Dr. Jones said last night. "I believe it is the fastest developing sport in America. I can't do justice to two jobs and I feel at the moment that I am more valuable to the community as city physician than as a football leader."...PIONEER PRO TEAM: The Cardinals are Chicago's pioneers in professional football. Under the direction of Chris O'Brien, they were playing teams throughout the middle west two or three years before the Bears moved into the city in 1921, the season the NFL was organized.


SEPT 7 (Green Bay) - Green Bay Football corporation directors and solicitors started down the home stretch of the season ticket sales campaign imbued with new enthusiasm Wednesday night, at which reports showed the halfway point in campaign had been passed and the outlook for the next ten days more encouraging. In face of none too optimistic conditions, the ticket salesmen have battled their way ahead and the list of prospects yet to be called on should produce many a dollar to finance football here...START DELIVERY FRIDAY: Delivery of tickets will get underway Friday. A number of the seats will be mailed out while others will be taken around by the solicitors. Any purchasers not receiving tickets by the middle of next week are asked to get in touch with E.A. Spachmann of the Packer ticket department at the Columbus Community club. The telephone number is Adams 6120. There are hundreds of choice reservations still available in all sections of the stands. This year the season tickets can be purchased from $15 down to $6.00, according to the location in the big stadium. A NFL price list recently received here by President L.H. Joannes shows that the Packers' admission scale is the lowest of any city participating in big time football...CARR COMMENTS ON SALE: Joe F. Carr, the National league executive who keeps in close touch with all the football activities around the circuit, is watching the Green Bay ticket sale with considerable interest, according to a letter written to Dr. W.W. Kelly, a member of the pro league's executive committee. Carr touched on football in general and said that prospects around the circuit were unusually good. "Every day I await the Green Bay paper," Carr wrote in the letter to Dr. Kelly, "with a good deal of interest to see how your season ticket sale is developing and I am glad to know that good progress is being made. We certainly want to keep Green Bay in the league. The Packers are one of our greatest attractions. I understand the handicap the Green Bay management works under trying to compete with clubs in the 'major' cities, but so far Green Bay has more than held its own, not alone on the gridiron but in the matter of attendance as well."...GREAT ADVERTISING VALUE: "Each season the hurdle is getting a bit higher for the Packers to hop, but I am confident that with your capable management and great community spirit, Green Bay will continue to be one of the outstanding spots in professional football this fall. Sometimes I wonder if the citizens of Green Bay realize what the Packers have accomplished for the city in a publicity way. The value to our community and the state of Wisconsin as well can't be figured in dollars and cents. I hope to be in Green Bay on Sunday, Sept. 24, to see your Chicago Bear game and also to participate in the final organization of an every day baseball league in Wisconsin."...CROWDS WATCH DRILLS: Coach E.L. Lambeau and his Packers are continuing their daily workouts at Joannes Park and each morning the crowd of onlookers is increasing. There is a lot of talk about the inter-club game this Sunday at the City stadium and some of the fans think the "yearlings" will give the veterans plenty of competition. F.L. "Jugger" Earpe, Packer veteran, will be seen on the gridiron Sunday in a different role as he is to act as headlinesman, while Ivan W. "Tiny" Cahoon, West High coach, who was a Packer in the old days, will be the umpire. Icky Erdlitz, Oshkosh, is to referee.


SEPT 7 (Evanston, IL) - Some 40 candidates for the Boston club of the NFL are working out here twice daily under the watchful eye of Lone Star Dietz, former coach of the Haskell Indians, who is starting his first year as mentor of the Redskins. With an array of talent which resembles a "who's who" of football, the Boston coach has the material for a club which may turn the National league upside down. The Redskins' first league game is scheduled for Green Bay on Sunday, Sept. 17, and Coach Dietz admits that if he can get over this hurdle, he will have something to say about the professional gridiron championship...TAKE 30 TO GREEN BAY: The Redskins' coach will take about 30 players to Green Bay. He doesn't plan to cut the squad until the middle of next week. Denny Shea, the Boston secretary, has made arrangements to move the squad from here to Green Bay early Saturday, Sept. 16, so that there will be time to practice on the Packers' field late in the afternoon. A number of the new players are showing class in the preliminary drills. Ben Boswell, a 220-pound tackle from Texas Christian, seems to be a fixture on the front wall along with Lawrence Ely, the all-American center, from Nebraska. Roy Horstmann, Purdue fullback, is very much in the picture and he will probably start against the Packers. Hank Schaldach is getting the call at a halfback berth as the California star is a speed demon. Louie Weller, the Haskell flash, is being used regularly at quarterback. Cliff Battles, a member of last year's Boston eleven, is sharing the signal calling job with Weller.


SEPT 8 (Green Bay) - Clark Hinkle, the Packers' all-American fullback, reported to practice today. Hinkle has been working with a steel construction firm in his hometown, Toronto, O., since spring and he appears to be in the pink of condition. The husky fullback stepped right into the practice session with lots of snap and he was punting the ball in midseason form. Clark has been playing around with a football for the last month at home and he seems to be farther advanced than some of the other gridders...NOTHING HEARD OF BLOOD: With Hinkle on hand, Cal Hubbard, is the only missing out of town veteran. Hubbard is slated to arrive Monday or Tuesday. Mike Michalske has been detained in Cleveland longer than expected by the illness of his sister. but the veteran guard wired Coach E.L. Lambeau that he would be back early Saturday. To date Verne Lewellen, halfback, has not come to terms with the Green Bay management...PROMISE LOTS OF ACTION: Lots of action is promised Sunday afternoon when the veterans and yearlings lock horns in an inter-club contest. This game will give Coach Lambeau an excellent opportunity to see his men under fire as every player will be bearing down to make a good showing. The "bargain day" prices should bring out a good crowd as the half dollar and quarter admission scale is the lowest in professional football history here. There will be no reserved seats although Sections G and H in the big grandstand on the south side of the field will be held for the purchasers of season tickets. Gates at the park will be opened at 12:30 and the Packer squads will be on the field early as the game is to start promptly at 2 p.m...SALESMEN MEET TONIGHT: The season ticket sellers, directors and officers of the Football corporation will meet again tonight at 7:45 o'clock and President L.H. Joannes requests a full attendance as the final revised lists of prospects are to be handed out for the last lap of the campaign which gets underway over the weekend. E.A. Spachmann, who is in charge of the Packer ticket department, started mailing out the season reservations today and he will have some of the tickets at tonight's meeting for distribution to the solicitors. Brisk business is reported at headquarters in the Columbus Community club building and the office staff is working overtime handing out of town inquiries about Packer tickets...CLIFFORD ISSUES WARNING: Some advertising solicitors having no connection with the Football corporation have been calling on the merchants and industrial plants attempting to sell space in football books, scorecards and official schedules, according to Vice President G.H. Clifford. "We will go to the limit to stop this practice," said the Football executive, "and we are asking the merchants to help us stamp out this false solicitation. Accredited Football corporation salesmen carry an identification letter with them at all times. It is hard enough to raise funds for Packer football without having some of these free lance promoters cut in on the business. The Football corporation intends to go to the fullest extent of the law against those who have been falsely representing themselves as agents."


SEPT 8 (Los Angeles) - A fast airplane carried Johnny Blood, missing Green Bay Packer halfback, eastward today. The football player, who has been sought by Green Bay club officials for the past week to report for practice, has been spending the past few months on the Pacific coast. Early today he boarded a trans-American airplane. He will go either to Kansas City or Chicago by plane and then go direct to Green Bay by railroad arriving Saturday or Sunday.


SEPT 9 (Green Bay) - Young, fast, shifty grid stars will be fighting to show big, powerful veterans of the professional ranks that young men just out of college know a few things about football, too, here tomorrow afternoon in the first public appearance of Green Bay Packers players in a football game. The game will be staged at the stadium at 2 p.m. with Packer players divided into squads to form the opposition. On one team will be all men who joined the Green Bay team this year and who are anxious to show  local fans what they can do under fire, and on the other squad will be experienced veterans, fighting to retain their jobs. It should be a real battle as the men have rounded into shape amazingly fast. In daily drills at Joannes park this week, the players have shown constant improvement. Today's session found them working with precision and smoothness, snapping through drills like machines...MEN LOOK GOOD: New men look promising at many positions. In the backfield Bob Monnett, Michigan State, and Buster Mott are doing everything asked of them. They are fast and shifty, can pass and have shown little weakness on pass defense. Buckets Goldenberg, he of the mighty legs and powerful shoulders, fits very well into the Packer machine as a fullback. He will have many Wisconsin friends pulling for him to make the grade. These three backs, with Arnold Herber, although not a new man, but grouped with the yearling squad to help round out the team, probably will start as one of the backfield combinations. Pitted against this combination probably will be a group of veterans in the other backfield. Roger Grove will be at quarterback with McCrary and Hinkle at fullback, Bruder and Englemann at the halfback posts. The backfield of veterans is a heavier group than the yearlings can boast, but has nothing over the latter in speed. Mott and Monnett are as fast as any young men seen here in a long time and with Herber to throw passes and work with them should be dangerous...MAY SHIFT CENTERS: On the yearling line probably will be Sarafiny and Young at 


center. They may be shifted from one team to the other, however, as Bultman is the only other pivot man, and it would be asking a lot to have him play the entire game. In fact Capt. E.L. Lambeau probably will have to shift some of his men from one team to the other, if the weather is hot and they begin to tire, as he has only 25 men out. Sarafiny is big and powerful and handles himself well. Young is tall, but lean, and passes very well. He also looked good on defense in practice sessions. At the guards Norm Greeney probably will start at the right position with Lon Evans at the other side. Both are husky and fact. At tackles Joe Kurth, former all-American from Notre Dame, will be on the right with Jess Quatse of Pittsburgh at the left berth. For ends the coach has Lester Peterson, who played with the Packers part of last year, and big Ben Smith, as promising a new man as has been seen here in a long time. Mark Catlin, with Wisconsin last year, also has been working out with the team this week and may get a chance to play at an end position...TEAM LOOKS GOOD: The veteran linemen will be Bultman at center with Comstock and Van Sickle as guards, Perry, Woodin and Gantenbein at tackles. Gantenbein also will be used as an end, his regular position, together with Lavvie Dilweg and Al Rose. Before witnessing the team in competitive action, it could be reported that the squad looks very good. New linemen are big and should help keep the Packer front wall ranking as one of the greatest in the country. Backfield man have shown enough speed and ability to indicate that there will be no weakness there. There is only one veteran quarterback available, Roger Grove, but Johnny Blood will be here in a day or two and can work in smoothly at that post and Herber is developing rapidly at the job...SEASON TICKETS READY: Purchasers of season tickets who have not received them can get them at the Packer ticket office in the Columbus club building from 7 until 9 p.m. tonight, and from 9 a.m. until noon Sunday.


SEPT 9 (Green Bay) - Complying with insistent public demand for a game before Milwaukee and southern Wisconsin fans, the New York Giant-Green Bay Packer football battle, originally scheduled for Green Bay on Oct. 1, has been transferred to Borchert field, Milwaukee, it was announced today by Leland H. Joannes, president of the local club. The game will be played on Sunday, Oct. 1, the same date as it was scheduled here. Decision to hold the game in Milwaukee was reached at a meeting of the executive board following conferences with Louis Nahin, Milwaukee American Association Baseball club president, and other Milwaukee supporters. The transfer has been approved by Joseph F. Carr, president of the National league, and Tim Mara, president of the New York Football club, Mr. Joannes said...HANDLED BY PACKERS: "For the past three years we have been beseeched by Milwaukeeans to stage a regular league game in that city," President Joannes said. "After careful consideration of all details, we have decided to play the New York-Packer game there as we believe it will be one of the best contests on our schedule and will be well supported by the public of southern Wisconsin. We always have had wonderful support from fans, newspapers and the Milwaukee Journal radio station of Milwaukee, and as they long have been urging a game in their city, we believe the request should be recognized. The game will be handled entirely under the management of the Green Bay Football corporation. There will be no Milwaukee underwriters or promoters involved in it. With good weather it should draw a crowd of 12,000 to 14,000 fans."...CAN SEAT 13,000: Purchasers of season tickets may exchange Green Bay-New York game tickets already printed for the contest here for the best seats in the Milwaukee park, or may have a refund in money if they do not intend to go to Milwaukee for the game, the president declared. Box seat season ticket holders will be given first choice for the tickets for the Milwaukee game and those who bought season tickets, other than box seats, will receive the equivalent in seats at Milwaukee or a refund. Milwaukee ticket offices will be opened in the near future, according to the president. E.A. Spachmann, director of ticket sales here, probably will go to Milwaukee about a week before the game to supervise the sale. The park, used during the summer by the Milwaukee Brewers baseball club, has a seating capacity of more than 13,000. Indications are that it will be taxed to capacity as southern Wisconsin fans long have been great boosters of Green Bay's football team, and with the game in their own district will turn out to see the squads in action.



SEPT 11 (Green Bay) - You may be a hero in college football circles, but when you bump up against the kind of competition veterans of the Green Bay Packer team can offer, you become just one of the boys trying to make good. Rookies of the Green Bay squad became aware of that fact here Sunday afternoon as they battled a team that was composed of veterans at the City stadium before a crowd of 2,500. They learned that it takes something more than youth and brawn, and a fair knowledge of football to play professional ball as the veterans handed them a beating by a score of 25 to 6 in an intra-club practice game. Plenty of good football was offered and there was some that was not so good. However, considering that Sunday's session was the first scrimmage of the year, it was a pleasing exhibition. Passing attacks clicked and defensive play at times was excellent. Play was as smooth as can be expected for this time of the year and performances of several new men indicated that they will be assets to the Packer club..USE ONE SET OF BACKS: The veterans used only one backfield, and it was a sweet combination with Arnold Herber at quarter, Hank Bruder and Englemann at the halfback posts and McCrary at fullback. It was Herber's first experience calling signals and his performance was excellent. Bruder and Englemann had field days, running all over the field, to pull down passes, thrown by their own men and by opponents, and in other ways playing bang up football. Opposing this group, the Yearlings had Grove at quarterback with Mott and Monnett at halfbacks and Hinkle and Goldenberg at fullback. Hinkle was a standout performer, and indicated he will be as good as ever. The blocking of Monnett was good, despite the fact that he was suffering with a Charley-horse and Mott gave an exhibition of great open field running to score the Rookie's only touchdown. Goldenberg showed considerable promise, doing some fine work at backing up the line and on the offense. He looks like he will go in the pro game. Grove's play left little to be desired, although he was handicapped in that this was his first time his squad ever worked together. On the Rookie line, Ben Smith, at end, and Greeney, at guard, probably were outstanding. Kurth and Quatse, who played the tackle positions, showed flashes of form as did Sarafiny and Young at center, and Evans at the other guard. Greeney's blocking was one of the features of the Yearling play. Passing of both centers was excellent. Mike Michalske, veteran guard, played at a guard position for the Yearling team and "rooted 'em out" in his old time fashion. Rose was at end for the Rookie and did well...MANY OLD FAVORITES: On the line for the veteran squad were many old favorites, not the least being Whitey Woodin who still can play as good a game at guard or tackle as many young men just out of college, despite the fact that he has been playing the professional game for more than 10 years. Comstock, another veteran of 10 years of play, was in pitching with plenty of vigor. Perry was all over the field again, as is his custom, to drag down ball carriers. Van Sickle fitted into the picture nicely at guard while Bultman's work at center was good throughout the game. At the ends Gantenbein, Dilweg and Peterson, the last names also working at tackle, let little get around them. Mark Catlin also played at end for the Veterans and figured in a few good plays. The Veterans ran up three touchdowns before the game was ten minutes old, setting the Rookies back on their ears with determination and enthusiasm. After that the Yearlings began to find themselves and did much better, breaking up many plays before they could get underway. The Vets added a fourth touchdown for the second quarter but in the final half they played mostly defensive football and let the new men try to advance against them. A pair of blocked punts paved the way for the first pair of markers, backfield men of the yearling squad missing the men they should have blocked out to give their kicker protection. Englemann recovered the first blocked punt early in the game and ran 25 yards unmolested to the goal. Woodin's kick for 


the extra point was wide of the post, so the vets had a 6 to 0 lead...PASS IS INTERCEPTED: A few moments later Perry pushed past defensive halfbacks and blocked Grove's punt, McCrary recovering for the veteran squad on the 30 yard line. Englemann then tossed a forward pass to Herber that traveled about 15 yards and Herber ran the remaining distance to the goal for a touchdown. Bruder's try from placement for the extra point proved to be a dud. Again Englemann figured in a fast play when he raced forward to intercept a pass by Grove in midfield. Bruder passed to Dilweg, and the big end jumped high into the air to pull down the ball for a 12 yard gain. Herber then whipped a 35 yard pass to Englemann and he ran 10 yards to score a third touchdown. Woodin's boot from placement added an extra point. In the second period McCrary intercepted a pass on his own 45 yard line and raced to his opponent's 22 before he was hauled to the ground. by Michalske. Line smashes by Bruder and McCrary made it a first down on the two yard line. Bruder fumbled on a direct buck on the goal line by Comstock recovered for the team, scoring a touchdown. Herber's drop kick was wide and the extra point was not recorded. After that it was a see-saw affair with neither side getting into a scoring zone. Bruder made a great return of a kick, returning about 40 yards before he was dumped by Goldenberg but the vets were stopped on the 30 yard line and did not score. This was in the third period. In the fourth quarter Hinkle started a pass, found his receivers covered and started to run. He raced to the right, reversed his field and spotting Mott alone about 15 yards away, shot a pass to him. Mott made a good catch on the 40 yard line, stepped fast straight down the field, side-stepped to dodge Englemann who tried to trip him and then evaded Herber by a clever change of pace as the quarterback lunged for him and grabbed nothing but the air. Mott went over the goal line standing up. Hinkle's placekick was wide of the posts and the game ended a short time later.


SEPT 11 (Green Bay) - Sunday afternoon during the practice which preceded the Packer intra-squad football game, fullback Clark Hinkle flipped a pass at tackle Jess Quatse, who stumbled as he received it. Today Quatse and Hinkle were surveying each other from opposite sides of a ward in St. Vincent hospital, but they plan to play in next Sunday's game against the Boston Redskins. Quatse is applying heat treatment to a sprained ligament, the first time in his long football career that he has ever been laid up. Hinkle is recuperating from a tonsils operation.


SEPT 12 (Green Bay) - The transfer of the New York Giant-Packer football game to Milwaukee has been made the basis of much idle talk to the effect that this city is on the verge of losing its professional football team because of financial difficulties. Before giving heed to this talk the fans in Green Bay and northeastern Wisconsin would do well to acquaint themselves with a few pertinent facts regarding the football situation here. No other club in the NFL has come through the depression as successfully as the Packers. Attendance with the exception of last year has constantly increased and the club's financial affairs are in fair shape. The same management that took hold of the Packers' eleven years ago, when the outlook was black and brought the club through successfully, and, in addition, won three national championships in as many years, is in charge now. Green Bay by careful management retained its football club and strengthened its position as the best attraction in the National league when such cities as Philadelphia, Providence, Minneapolis and Staten Island fell by the wayside because of financial difficulties. The Packers have a strong club again this year and there is no reason to doubt but that it will once more be a serious contender for the championship. A good ball club is always an attraction here - and Green Bay will have a first class team on the field, as the new players give more promise than those of any other crop. This community could well afford to raise by public subscription a fund of as much as $10,000 a year to support the Packers. There are thousands of dollars being spent annually on other activities that do not begin to bring to the city the advertising or the actual trade the Packers do. When all these facts are taken into consideration it is seen there is no foundation for the talk that is going the rounds, or that the Packers may soon be a thing of the past in Green Bay. It is a fact that the Football corporation is biting off quite a chunk in attempting to compete on an equal basis with such cities as New York, Chicago, Boston, Pittsburgh and Brooklyn, but with the whole-hearted support of the community it can be done. The present Packer management's record entitles it to the confidence of the public. The officers and board of directors have made many sacrifices in time and money to keep professional football in Green Bay, because they felt there was a public demand for it, and because they wanted to do something worthwhile for the city. They stand prepared to continue their efforts if the fans will give them the same loyal and unselfish cooperation they gave in former years when the outlook did look doubtful. It is possible that if the attendance at the games this season drops off there may be a small deficit, but the Press-Gazette is satisfied that any reasonable amount to cover this loss can be raised among business houses and individuals. The Packer team is a civic asset, an asset that has been built up through the years at the expense of much time and money. It cannot and will not be torn down by the mere chatter of those who do not know whereof they speak. Green Bay and the Packers are synonymous. They cannot be separated for the sake of a few dollars. The situation here is sound and there should be no petty carping at a time like this when every effort is being made to avoid a deficit. There is no justification for such criticism. The Giant game here always has meant a loss that has ranged as high as $5,200. If this deficit can be avoided by transferring the game to Milwaukee, the management is to be commended for its judgment and foresight. The main concern of the Packers' management is to maintain the club's present financial independence. Let's help them do it by being willing to sacrifice this one game and cut out the talk about football being all "washed up" here.


SEPT 12 (Green Bay) - Here and there about town can be heard howls of calamity because the Packer management has decided to shift the Green Bay-New York Giant game to Milwaukee. Most of them are rather ridiculous. The change isn't nearly as important as some would have you believe. Football will continue for a good many years as long as the Packers continue to offer the kind of entertainment that has been seen in the past. The shifting of one game to Milwaukee won't make a particle of difference as to the future of Packer football. The change is made because the Packer management believes that by shifting the game, it may help the club finish the season with a good financial statement instead of a deficit, and to satisfy a demand of southern Wisconsin fans for a game in that city. The management also believes that it will do a great deal to stimulate interest in the professional game in that section of the state...For the past several years, Packer-Giant games, with but one exception, have resulted in a deficit to the Green Bay corporation. It is usually scheduled after a game against the Chicago Bears, as it is the only time it can be arranged. The Bears always pack in the fans here. As many supporters cannot afford to attend more than a few big contests a year, they come to the Bear game and stay away the following weekend, when the Giants come here...This year the Giant game comes between the contests with the Bears and Portsmouth. The Bears and Portsmouth always draw fine crowds, and advance sale indicates they will be well attended again this year, but it is extremely doubtful whether fans would turn out in large enough numbers to make the Giant game a paying proposition. And if the game would not be a paying proposition here, and could be made to be one in Milwaukee, isn't it good management to shift it? If the game was played here and three or four thousand dollars lost on it, the deficit wouldn't be disastrous to the Packer club by any stretch of the imagination, but there is a natural desire to avoid this loss if possible. The loss might be made up in other games, but if it was not, business interests and the public would make up the difference in a hurry before letting football slip out...A few fans have asked why the third game with the Chicago Bears is not played in Milwaukee instead of the Giant game. The Packers have no authority to change that game, as it is on the Bears' home schedule and up to the Chicago management to make any decision regarding it. The Packers stand to lose no money on that game, as they play it on a guarantee they will pay expenses. The Packer management, as efficient a group of men as ever handled a community organization, has every reason to believe that if the Giant game is played in Milwaukee, it will go over financially. Green Bay fans have been very loyal to the Packers and given the club excellent support. On the other hand the Packers have given every fan his money's worth. The Packers have brought the finest wind of football here and made it available at reasonable prices. If the Packer management believes that by shifting the game to Milwaukee, it might help the club finish the season in good financial condition, instead of a deficit, the plan should be given the wholehearted support of every fan.


SEPT 12 (Green Bay) - With one of the nation's outstanding coaches in the person of Lone Star Dietz, and a lineup which reads like Who's Who in Football, the Boston Redskins will invade Green Bay Sunday to tackle the Packers in the first league game for both teams. Plenty of money was spent this season in assembling the Redskins. George Marshall, millionaire Boston laundry magnate, is determined that his second year of ownership will produce a championship team, and he has spared no expense in signing up desirable men. Dietz assumed charge of the Redskins after a series of triumphs on the collegiate gridiron. He received his early football education under Glenn S. (Pop) Warner at Carlisle, Washington State, Mare Island Marines, Purdue, Louisiana Polytechnic Institute, Wyoming, Stanford, Los Angeles Town club and Haskell Institute...ALWAYS A FIGHTER: Always a fighter and a builder, Dietz never has led a failure on the gridiron. His teams are noted for their smart, clean, vigorous football, and he has won praise and respect of rival coaches. Herb Fletcher, a back from St. Mary's university, has received all-America mention and is "dead" on goals after touchdown. He coached freshmen football at St. Mary's last year, weighs 195 pounds and is rated one of Boston's fastest backs. Another Gael on the Redskin team is Ike Frankian, who was named all-America in 1928 by both Associated Press and United Press. He plays end. Irvin Hill is a back from Trinity college, received in a trade from the Chicago Cardinals. He scales six feet and weighs 210 pounds. Hubert Hinchman, a back from New River State college, is breaking into the pro game this year, and is reported a real find...HORSTMANN OF PURDUE: A back who needs no introduction, and who was high scorer of the Big Ten in 1932, is Roy Horstmann of Purdue, who received widespread all-America mention. Packer fans will keep their eyes on Horstmann, rated one of the best backs. Steve Hokuff is an end from Nebraska who is rated a wizard at pass receiving. George F. Hurley, formerly of Washington college, saw service with Boston last season, and is a rugged steady player. He is a guard. One man expected to work in well with Dietz's type of play is Lawrence Johnson, a Menominee Indian from Haskell, who weighs 255 ponds and is a great defensive player. He measures six feet four inches. Tony Jurich is an end from Southern California who because of illness did not play last season but who is expected to make his mark in the professional game...MACMURDO STAR GUARD: Ben La Presta is a young Italian from St. Louis university who has won acclaim throughout the midwest. He is a fiery player, best in the pinches, and plays in the backfield. James MacMurdo hails from Pitt, plays tackle, but is best known for his work at guard against the Chicago Bears last season. He weighs 210. Jim (Sweet) Musick is one of the best known Boston players. He was chosen all America back with Southern California in 1931, and is rated one of the hardest plunging backs who ever bucked the line. He played every minute of every game for Boston last season. Another well known Redskin is Jack Riley, Northwestern tackle who all-America last year. He is an intelligent and aggressive player, weighing 230 pounds. John Scafide is a guard from Tulane, who weighs 215 pounds and has won all-Southern honors. Henry Schaldach, California back, played brilliantly in last January's East-West game. Another man to win wide honors last year is Michael Steponovich, who weighs 205 pounds and plays guard. David Ward is a Haskell guard and a Yakima Indian, who can play almost any line position...SECOND YEAR WITH BOSTON: Dale Waters is playing his second year as tackle with Boston. He hails from Florida university and scales 215 pounds. Louis Weller is a Caddo Indian who captained Haskell in 1931 and is regarded as an exceptionally elusive ball carrier. Edgar Westfall is a back from Ohio Wesleyan who has received all-America mention, and is a crack professional basketball player. The Boston team is practicing this week at Dyche stadium, Evanston, as guests of Northwestern university, and the squad is expected to arrive in Green Bay Friday night.


SEPT 13 (Green Bay) - The NFL opens its thirteenth season this evening with a night game when two newcomers in the post-graduate gridiron circuit, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, meet in Pittsburgh. On Sunday, the league schedule starts to pick up speed with Boston playing in Green Bay while Portsmouth will open with the Cincinnati eleven. From Sunday until Sunday, Dec. 10, the National league will be going full blast. There are 58 games on the schedule. With the exception of a few midweek night games at Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and two contests on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 30, all the other league contests will be staged on Sundays. There are five "full house" Sunday. On Oct. 15, Nov. 5, Nov. 12, Nov. 19 and Dec. 3 every club in the league will be seen in action. Every team is booked for ten engagements and several of the entries, including Green Bay, have 12...BAYS WIN THREE IN A ROW: In the 12 years that the National league has operated on an extensive scale, Green Bay and the Chicago Bears have each on three championships. Canton had two pennant winners while single season titles went to the New York Giants, Detroit, Providence and Philadelphia (Frankford). The Packers' three year winning streak, 1929, 1930 and 1931, still stands as a pro league record. The Canton Bulldogs carried off the honors in 1922 and 1923. The Bears won their flags in 1921 (the year they played under the name of the Decatur Staleys), 1924 and 1932, which was really a hollow victory as they had six tie games in their string...1925 WAS HECTIC YEAR: In 1925, Detroit was awarded the championship but it was an empty one. The Chicago Cardinals finished first but one of their game in which they played a fake Milwaukee team was tossed into the discard and the Cards disqualified as a pennant contender. Pottsville, which that year had one of the greatest pro elevens of all time, was second in line but the Miners violated a territorial rights' regulation by playing a non-league game in Philadelphia despite the protests of the Frankford Yellowjacket organization. This cost Pottsville the pennant award so the bunting was given to Detroit, the third place team. The Frankford Yellowjackets won the title in 1926 while the New York Giants carried off the honors the following season. The Packers were right on the New Yorkers' heels with nine games won, two lost and one tied. In 1928, the Providence Steamrollers under the guidance of Jimmy Conzelman nosed home in first place. One of the games the Rhode Islanders didn't win that season was a 7-7 tie contest with Green Bay. In 1929, the Packers carried off the championship, 13 victories and one tie game with the Yellowjackets. 1930 saw Coach E.L. Lambeau's squad tuck away championship No. 2 with 11 victories, three defeats and a tie with Portsmouth. In 1931, the Bays chalked up their third straight title on a dozen victories and a pair of defeats. Upsets in the three out of the last five games in 1932 cost the Packers another pennant as the Chicago Bears and Portsmouth Spartans nosed out the Bays in a neck and neck finish...FREE-FOR-ALL RACE: This season the flag hunt looms up like a free-for-all. Coach Lambeau is confident that his club will again be a pennant contender. The Packers' crop of new players is above the average and there are enough veterans on hand to balance the gridiron machine perfectly. On paper, the Bears look stronger than usual, with Manders, Ronzani and other promising recruits in the lineup. Harry Newman, former Michigan quarterback, should provide the New York Giants with the much needed spark while the Friedman-Cagle-Kelly combination at Brooklyn is deserving of considerable attention. Coach Paul Schissler has a promising looking aggregation in the Chicago Cardinals and the change in management should help the mental attitude of the Cardinal squad considerably. The Boston Redskins have a super aggregation of collegiate stars in uniform and Coach Lone Star Dietz, former Haskell mentor, is broadcasting the word that he expects to upset the National league. Potsy Clark will have another good club at Portsmouth but he will miss Dutch Clark at quarterback as his last year's signal caller was a team in himself...WRAY AT PHILADELPHIA: Lud Wray, former Pennsylvania coach, has the makings of a real ball club at Philadelphia and his Quakers will probably win more games than they lose this fall. Mike Palm is expected to do great things in Cincinnati, but the old time Penn State luminary will have to be a miracle man if he places in the first division with the squad he has at the present time. However, there will be plenty of good footballer loose when the clubs cut to the league limit after the third game and Palm will probably plug up his weak spots. Pittsburgh has signed up a number of pro league veterans and the Pirates have some likely looking youngsters. There is a lot of money behind the Pittsburgh machine and the owners have instructed Coach Steve Rooney to go the limit to produce a winner. The Pittsburgh club has a well balanced schedule playing their first four games at home and the Pirates should be right at the peak of their game when they start their western invasion with a contest against the Packers here on Oct. 15.


SEPT 13 (Green Bay) - The Packers will finish no lower than third in the 1933 NFL race. There it is - our prediction for the season. If you believe we are wrong, say so. We like to get other opinions. Despite the fact that the Packers haven't yet opened the National league season, we look for them to be one of the leaders again. Why? First, because they have practically the same line that did great work last year. Second, new material looks good. Linemen are big and tough. Backs are fast and smart football players. Third, the team spirit is excellent. Fourth, the squad appears to have all that it takes to make a winner, including speed, power and deceptive plays...There is no denying that last year's team was as good as any in the league, despite the fact that the Packers finished in third place. They beat the Portsmouth and Bear teams that finished in front of them. They have enough men back again from that squad, plus good new men to do as well this year. Nate Barrager, center of the 1932 squad, is missing, because he prefers to remain on the west coast in business. But in his place are Bultman, Young and Sarafiny. Young and Sarafiny are new but show promise. There should not be a very noticeable weakness in that position. Paul Fitzgibbons and Harry O'Boyle were quarterbacks with the team last year, who are not present again, but Roger Grove is on the job. So is Johnny Blood, who knows and likes the quarterback work, and Arnold Herber is coming along smoothly. We can't see where that position is much if any weaker than it was last year. Hank Bruder looks like the proverbial "million" this year. Englemann and McCrary should have good seasons. Hinkle, rated as good as any fullback in the circuit in 1932, his first year, should be even better this season. Goldenberg looks tough and strong and should go. Monnett and Mott are fast and deceptive. Taking the backfield as a whole, we can't find any apparent weakness. If Coach Lambeau wants a speedy, shift set of backs, he has them. If he wants one that has power, he has that, too...The competition is sure to tougher than ever this year. Portsmouth, New York, Chicago Bears and Boston are sure to give the Packers plenty of trouble, but the Bays should thrive on it. They always have. Philadelphia, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh are new in the circuit but are loading up with some great players. Brooklyn, under Chris Cagle and Shipwreck Kelly, promises to be troublesome. So do the Cardinals, with Bidwell, a Chicago millionaire, running the squad. Bidwell will spend a lot of money to provide a winner. He knows that it pays. All in all, the National league race looks like one of the best in years. Dividing the teams into eastern and western divisions with the winners in each section fighting for the title also should help keep up interest.



SEPT 13 (Green Bay) - The echo of many a famous gridiron battle will be heard on the professional field this fall, with William "Lone Star" Dietz, former Carlisle Indian tackle, at the helm of the Boston Redskins, who play the Packers here Sunday. Not many coaches possess records which excel that of Dietz, a Sioux Indian who won all-America honors at Carlisle in the days when the Indian team was the sensation of football. He received his football education from Glenn (Pop) Warner, who pioneered as coach at Carlisle, and played with Jim Thorpe in the great days of that fine back. Dietz captained the Carlisle team of 1911, his final year of competition, and remained with Warner as assistant coach after graduation. The Indians met his first coaching success in 1915 as mentor at Washington State college, Pullman, Wash., when he took a small, hitherto disorganized squad and produced a team which was the terror of the west coast, winning a Pacific coach championship the first season. In 1917 Dietz's team again took the conference title...COACHED MARINE TEAM: When Washington abandoned football because of war activities in 1918, Dietz coached the Mare Island Marines, who won the naval service stations championship. In 1921 he went to Purdue in the Big Ten, and although he remained there but one year, he turned out one of the best teams in the history of the university, losing but one game. In 1922, Lone Star coached at Louisiana Polytechnic institute, meeting marked success for two season. From 1924 to 1927, he was the University of Wyoming, and in that period turned the perennial tail enders of the Rocky Mountain conference into a first division outfit. In 1927 Dietz received another call from Pop Warner and assisted the famous coach at Leland Stanford university. The following season he coached at the Los Angeles Town club, a famous coast professional team, where he acquired his first interest in the pro game and steered the squad through an undefeated season...CALL FROM HASKELL: The achievement was followed by a call from Haskell institute, when Dietz coached the Indian team so effectively that, although he lacked material comparable to the old Carlisle days, he earned national repute for his team. Last winter Lone Star accepted a contract with Boston of the National league and he will head the Redskins when they make their first 1933 league appearance here Sunday afternoon. With the radical rule changes aimed to open up gridiron play in the National league, Dietz's strategic system is expected to meet great success, returning the spectacular to the football field. When Warner, Dietz's old tutor, heard that Lone State had been signed to coach the Redskins, he wrote the Boston management as follows: "In selecting Lone Star Dietz as coach of the Boston professional team you have selected one of the most outstanding and most capable and colorful coaches of the country...With material anywhere near the equal of rival coaches I am sure he will prove to be an outstanding success as a coach in the professional league."


SEPT 14 (Green Bay) - When the Green Bay Packers open their drive to recapture premier football honors in the NFL against Boston Sunday, Governor A.G. Schmedeman, Leo T. Crowley and other prominent Wisconsin Democrats will be in the stands. There will also be a number of prominent football men in the Redskins' lineup, which includes such nationally known stars as Ernie Pinckert, Jack Riley, Cliff (Gip) Battle, Jim (Sweet) Musick and Roy Hostmann. These players are calculated to give the Packer line the most severe opening day test in the team's history...SORT OF HOMECOMING: The occasion may develop into a semi-homecoming celebration, for the referee will be Bobby Cahn, tiny official who was a popular figure at City stadium back in the early days of the Packer championship era, and who, for the past two years has been working in the east. Cahn has been transferred back to Chicago, and his appearance here Sunday will be his first in an official capacity since the 1930 season. Robert McNutt, Milwaukee, will do the umpiring while Wilfred Smith, Chicago sport writer, has been named by President Joe F. Carr of the National league to serve as headlinesman. Posted at quarterback for Boston will be Marger Apsit, formerly of Southern California gridiron and the Hollywood movie lots, who saw service with the Packers last season but will be out to defeat the Bays Sunday. Apsit is a tough customer on the screen or off, and he is sure to see action in the opening game...TALK BETWEEN HALVES: Gov. Schmedeman, Pinckert and Cahn are slated to vie for attention with the fans. The state executive will speak briefly over the public address system between halves of the game, while the other two will do most of their work during the playing periods. Pinckert was involved in a deal which was intended to land him at Green Bay, but Tom Nash, the other half of the trade, refused to report to Boston and Pinckert remained in his Redskin grid togs. Coach E.L. Lambeau today pronounced his squad in good shape for the opening day battle. Clark Hinkle, whose tonsils were removed early this week, has left St. Vincent hospital and rejoined the Packer team and Jess Quatse's injured leg tendon has responded satisfactorily to treatment. The rest of the man are set for a bruising afternoon. With the return of Cal Hubbard, giant tackle, to Green Bay today, the Packer squad was practically complete. Johnny Blood came back to work earlier this week and was immediately started at a quarterback position.


SEPT 13 (Evanston, IL) - Coach Lone Star Dietz and 27 members of the Boston NFL squad prepared today to leave for Green Bay, Wis., where the Redskins are slated to open their season against the former championship Packers on Sunday. The Boston team arrived at Green Bay Friday night and will be headquartered at the Beaumont hotel. Many of the players will be making their first appearance in the northern Wisconsin football capital, and are curious to see the highly touted Packers.


SEPT 13 (Boston) - George Marshall, millionaire laundry magnate and owner of the Boston Redskins professional football team, left with his party for Wisconsin today, where he will witness his team in action against the Green Bay Packers. In Marshall's party is Bill Cunningham, nationally known sports writer of the Boston Post, who has gained a wide reputation as a columnist. Before leaving the Hub, Marshall scanned reports from Evanston, Ill., where his team has been practicing indicating that the Redskins are in peak form for the coming National league campaign. Marshall has opened wide the purse strings this season in an effort to give Boston a winning football team, and he is expecting great results from Lone Star Dietz and his powerful squad. The Boston rooters expect to reach Green Bay Saturday. 


SEPT 14 (Green Bay) - Bernard E. Darling, who shared the Packer center position with Francis L. (Jugger) Earpe for several years, but who dropped out of competition in 1931 following an injury, rejoined the Green Bay squad in practice today. Darling played football at Beloit college, came to the Packers in 1927 and played until midway in the '31 season when he sustained an injury to his shoulder.



SEPT 15 (Green Bay) - The Boston professional team squad won't reach Green Bay until Saturday night, Dennis Shea, business manager of the Redskins, wired the Packer management early today. Lone Star Dietz and his gridders had been scheduled to arrive here tonight at 8:30 o'clock over the Northwestern road from Evanston, Ill., where they have been training for three weeks. Dietz and Shea decided to set the train movement back 24 hours so that they could travel on the same train from Chicago as Owner George Marshall and his party of Boston football fans who are coming to Green Bay for the opening game. The Marshall party reaches Chicago at noon and will take the 3 p.m. train for Green Bay. The Boston squad will get on at Evanston...MAY STAY OVER: There is a possibility that the Redskins may be quartered in Green Bay during the next two weeks, as Boston plays the Chicago Bears Oct. 1, and may decide to make northeastern Wisconsin as its headquarters...STAGE IS SET: The Football corporation has been busy for several weeks setting the stage for Sunday's game and every possible arrangement has been made to handle the large turnout of spectators with the least possible confusion. Veteran ticket takers have been assigned their old jobs at the turnstiles and the same head ushers who have served for a number of years will again be in service under the direct supervision of Walter Mott. E.A. Spachmann, who is in charge of the Packer ticket department, will have a full force working at the Columbus club Sunday morning and at the City stadium, starting at 12:30 p.m. when the gates will open...BERO HEADS THE POLICE: H.J. (Tubby) Bero, a member of the board of directors, will direct the police force at the field. Both city and county officers together with a detail of Legion men are to be on duty at the field. The fence patrol is to be tightened up this fall by the addition of some unemployed war veterans who will be paid for standing guard outside the wire barriers...USHERS TO MEET EARLY: All ushers are to meet at the City stadium Sunday at 11:30 a.m., and they will be handed their badges and buttons for the season. The program sellers are to assemble at 12:15 p.m. for the same distribution. Every usher and program salesman must wear his numbered button and badge on his coat lapel. Spectators at the Packer games are asked to report any discourtesy or inefficiency on the part of the park attendants to the head ushers who will be garbed in blue uniform coats and hats and they in turn will get in touch with the management who will immediately rectify any mistakes. Ira Clark, who is the City stadium custodian this fall, has everything in shape at the park. The gridiron is in perfect condition and the new uprights will be placed on the goal lines for Sunday's game. Minor repair work on the big stands has been completed and everything is ready to house what promised to be the biggest opening day crowd in Packer football history...GET TICKETS EVERYWHERE: Northeastern Wisconsin has been well covered by the Packer sales brigade, which has established 11 ticket headquarters in Green Bay and 15 others in surrounding cities of Wisconsin and upper Michigan.



SEPT 15 (Green Bay) - When the Packers makes their 1933 bow in National league competition here Sunday at the City stadium against the Boston Redskins, fans should see more open football than ever before witnessed on a professional gridiron. If the daily workouts of the Green Bay team at Joannes park is any indication, the Packers will offer a fast, tricky pass offense as one of their chief stocks in trade. And not only will the Packers take to the air, but Boston is prepared to present an overhead game that should be good to watch, and hard to stop, judging from reports from Evanston, where the Eastern club has been training for the past two weeks in preparation for the league opener...MANY NEW PLAYS: Many new formations and pass plays have been developed by the Green Bay team to take advantage of the new forward pass rule that permits a team to pass from any point behind the line of scrimmage. And with the best group of receivers in the league, they should click. Boston will come here with a strong team, but can hardly boast of as many fleet halfbacks and tall ends as the Packers have available. In Blood, Englemann, McCrary, Bruder, Mott, Monnett, the Bays have backfield men that can pick passes out of any zone. In Dilweg, Rose, Peterson, Gantenbin and Smith, they have ends that rank with any in the circuit in the passing game. Add to this department an excellent line and combinations of backfield men who like to block and run and it looks like the 1933 Packer machine stacks up as good as any in recent years...WORK ON RUNNING GAME: Although Coach E.L. Lambeau has been stressing the overhead game, he has not overlooked other departments. Long sessions have been devoted to straight bucks, flanker plays, power smashes and deceptive runs and the new men have been fitting into the picture smoothly every day. Some of the new men had trouble swinging into the rhythm of Packer play, but at every session the timing becomes better. In the drill this morning they snapped through the plays with precision, picking the holes as they were made. The quarterback problem seems to be working out to the coach's satisfaction with Johnny Blood and Roger Grove doing most of the work. Mott., Monnett and Goldenberg, new backfield men, look better with every drill. Mott and Monnett are fast, shifty open field runners and should help speed up the Packer running game. Goldenberg, while not as fast as the other two men, has plenty of power and drive. Veterans look better than ever with Bruder and Herber in particular showing up...CAL BOLSTERS LINE: On the line there is spirited competition for places. The return of Cal Hubbard bolsters the front wall considerably. He reported in fine shape after a season of work as an umpire in the International league and should have another fine year. Jess Quatse and Joe Kurth have been showing constant improvement, but their worth cannot be determined until after the coach witnesses them in a league encounter. With four men available for the center work is sure to have men who will fill that position. Darling, who reported back with the team after more than a year layoff, has considerable experience in league play, having performed for more than four years with the squad. He is big and powerful and should not take long to get back into shape. Sarafiny, the big Texas pivot, is fitting into the Packer machine better than he did at first. Bultman has played the professional game for two years and probably will have to carry the brunt of the work next Sunday. Young looks good but is light. He may be able to overcome this handicap, however, by aggressiveness...HAS SEVERAL GUARDS: The Packer coach is well fortified at guard. Mike Michalske, dean of them all for many years, is in fine shape and should have another great year. He is the hardest working man on the field, seldom stopping for a moment. Rudy Comstock, also a veteran of many years, reported in prime condition, and can be relied on for plenty of good football. Lon Evans, Norm Greeney and Clyde Van Sickle, new guards, have shown plenty of promise and are set to prove their worth this weekend. Besides Hubbard and Perry, veteran tackle, Coach Lambeau has Joe Kurth and Jess Quatse for that position. Both should come through in good shape for the professional game. Quatse has a powerful body and seems to know what to do all the time. Kurth is big, strong and fast, possessing all the requisites of a great lineman. Coach Lambeau will face a tough problem when the time comes to cut down the squad, as far as the ends are concerned. He has five men available for the wing jobs and a sixth, Tom Nash, is still the property of the Packers although he has not reported. Dilweg, Rose and Gantenbein were with the squad last year and look as good as ever. Peterson, who was with the squad for a time last year, and Ben Smith, a new wingman, also have shown plenty of ability.


SEPT 16 (Green Bay) - Football, the game of games that annually grips all Green Bay, and all Wisconsin, too, for that matter, with feverish intensity, comes into its own again here tomorrow afternoon. Green Bay's Packers are to make their initial bid for honors and it will be against Boston's Redskins, as tough an early season foe as the Bays have ever faced. Promptly at 2 o'clock the referee's whistle will blow, some 7,500 or more fans will be heard in a mighty roar and the National league season will begin here. It will be the 13th consecutive year of play for the Packers in the professional circuit. With a team composed of many veterans of those great squads that won three consecutive championships for Green Bay and a host of new men who look as good as any candidates in the circuit, the Packers should be set to offer another determined bid for the National league title...A GREAT RECORD: Their road will not be an easy one. Every team in the league will be primed and pointed for the Packers. They have been out to get them for the past four years. Few have, however, as the Bay machine has been powerful and efficient. Indications are that this year's club will be as good as any of the other great outfits. The Packers will be seeking to keep intact their record of not having lost a home game in five years. They will be trying to keep up the record that surpasses any other all-time mark of a club in the professional circuit. It is a record that shows that in 12 years of competition in the National league, the Packer have won 105 games, lost 34 and tied 16, for an average of .756. It is a record of 30 consecutive games won in the Green Bay field. A record of championships in 1929, 1930, 1931 and one of runner-up in 1932. Not since Oct. 7, 1928, have the Packers been beaten on their own field. In that game, the New York Giants did the trick in a stiff 6 to 0 contest. Boston comes here with a mighty strong club. One that cost plenty of money to put on the field. Its roster is studded with names of stars from colleges in every part of the country, and with players who boast fine reputations in the professional loop...HAVE FAST BACKS: Boston can start a backfield that is as powerful as any in the circuit. Or it can start a backfield that is fast and shifty, that can execute plays with split precision. Eleven men are available for backfield work. The group includes such stars as Cliff Battles, of West Virginia; Ernie Pinckert, California flash; Roy Horstmann, who gained a great reputation at Purdue; Marger Apsit, from Southern California; Jim Musick, also from the West coast; Louis Weller, from Haskell and others equally as well known. All can run and pass and have been drilled for three weeks in execution of plays. Their offense should leave little to be desired Sunday. Against this group the Packers can boast a combination that has driven and power, or can march the Boston quartet in speed and deceptiveness. At quarterback Grove, Herber or Blood will be set to go. Bob Monnett, who led the nation in scoring in 1931 while at Michigan State, Wuert Englemann, he of the long legs and speed; Buster Mott, as shifty a little halfback as has been seen here in some time, and Hank Bruder can be used at halfback positions. At fullback the team is well fortified with Clark Hinkle, Buckets Goldenberg and Herdis McCrary. There will be little to choose from in these sets of backfield men. Indications are that they will figure prominently in a wide open game, as both have been spending long sessions perfecting passing attacks. With the inception of the new forward pass rules, many new plays have been formed to take advantage of it. The rule, which permits passing from any place behind the line of scrimmage, should put additional speed into attacks this year...NEITHER HAS EDGE: Matching the lines shows neither team with a decided edge. Green Bay's men are big and powerful but they have little if anything in weight over the forward wall that can be used by the invaders. The Boston club has a trio of centers in Lawrence Johnson, Dick Smith and Orlen Crow. All weigh more than 200 pounds. Crow and Johnson are former Haskell stars. Smith was a star at Ohio State. No weakness there. Guards include Mike Steponovich, from St. Mary's in California, George Hurley, Jim MacMurdo, David Ward and John Scafide. The heaviest of this group is Scafide, who weighs 215, the lightest, Ward, who goes 195. A well-balanced group. At tackle, big Glen Edwards, from faroff Washington, Jack Riley, who tore opposing lines apart when at Northwestern, and James Kamp. MacMurdo also works as a tackle. All are big and fast. At the ends the team has Paul Collins, Dale Waters, Ike Frankian and Steve Kokuf, none under five feet, 11 inches in height and all over 185 in weight. Another strong group...MANY VETS BACK: Paired against these men the Packers can offer a line composed entirely of veterans, one that has a combination of veterans and new men or a third that is composed almost entirely of new men. There seems to be no apparent weakness in the Packer front wall. Four men are available for the center position. Veterans Bultman and Darling, new men, Young and Sarafiny. At the guards there is Michalske, Evans, Comstock, Van Sickle and Greeney, all as tough as they come. Big Cal Hubbard and Perry are veteran tackles and if the coach chooses to use new men he has Jess Quatse and Joe Kurth, of all-American fame. At the wings are five men, four of them veterans. What more could be asked than to have Lavvie Dilweg, Rose, Peterson, Gantenbein and big Ben Smith at wings? All in all, the opening game shapes up into a great battle. There should be plenty of thrills from the start to the finish. With good weather prevailing it, it should draw a crowd of at least 7,000, perhaps one that numbers much more than that. A good advance sale has been reported. The ticket office at the Columbus club will remain open this evening to accommodate those who have not already secured seats. The office will be open until noon on Sunday, when it will be moved to the field. Many good seats are still available.


SEPT 16 (Green Bay) - The Fox Movietone news will make sound pictures of the Packer-Boston football contest at the City stadium Sunday afternoon, it was announced this morning of the Orpheum theater. After negotiating a week, Mr. Segelbaum this morning received a telegram from Alfred J. Davis, Chicago office of the Movietone news announcing that the movie cameraman and sound truck would be here to shoot the opening game.


SEPT 16 (Columbus, OH) - Rain in the western Pennsylvania area Wednesday night caused postponement of the scheduled NFL game between Cincinnati and Portsmouth, and delayed opening of the 1933 pro season until Sunday, when two games are carded. Boston invades Green Bay to meet the Packers and Cincinnati will play at Portsmouth Sunday. The Ohio contest is expected to be a severe test for Cincinnati, as the Spartans rolled the strong newly-organized Indianapolis squad Wednesday night in an exhibition tilt, 19 to 0. "With interest running high throughout the professional circuit," President Joe F. Carr said today, "the league is looking forward confidently to its most successful season. With all teams strengthened and some promising new squads in the race, a red hot pennant battle is expected."

The former Wildcat is a hard running back and he is just the type to go on the pro gridiron...Jack Reardon, a member of the New York Times' sport staff, will again serve as an official in the National league. Reardon has been with the circuit for six seasons and has given great satisfaction as a headlinesman...The call of the movies was too strong for Gil Berry, stellar Illinois quarterback, and he has deserted the Chicago Cardinals for a chance in Hollywood. In recent screen tests, Berry was adjudged as pretty close to perfect.


SEPT 16 (Green Bay) - Tomorrow another Packer football team takes the field to compete for the championship of the NFL. It is the fifteenth great Packer team and from all indications one of the best. But whether it is or not, whether other teams are greater, the competition tougher, the costs higher and whether the team meets reverses with its triumphs, it takes the field confident that "the greatest football city in the world" will be back of it 100 percent strong through all the fortunes of the game and the season. The wonder continues to grow throughout the country, that this comparatively little city, can continue year after year to put on the field the greatest or nearly the greatest football team in the world. And that this is no idle statement is proven by statistics, which show that Green Bay entered "big time" competition, the Packers have won three championships, have scored 2,879 points to their opponents' 791, won 124 games, lost 36 and tied 17, for an all-time average of .775. Those who travel much can vouch for the fact that in no part of the nation is Green Bay unknown, and where it is known, it is first known for its great football teams which have blazoned their deeds in the headlines throughout the country, from New York to San Francisco. It is respected as an extraordinarily live town, and a good one to live in. Could there possibly be any better publicity for this city? Could literature, speakers, statistics, history, conditions - any of them create a more enviable reputation than "that must be a great little city"? The cash value to Green Bay of the Packers cannot even be estimated. The value to every fan within travel distance of City Stadium can more easily be computed. Never a Packer game that is not worth more than any fan pays to see it. Were there no Packers, only at the university stadia and Chicago would the nearest opportunity exist to spectate at such thrilling contests between the cream of the college gridirons. Although a community asset, altogether worthy of an annual campaign for underwriting, the Green Bay Football corporation each year has put a team upon the field - a great team - without any 


appropriations from industry or business. Green Bay wishes the Packers good luck in their quest of a fourth national championship.



DEC 12 (Green Bay) - With the National league season over, Green Bay's Packers prepared today for a post-season game next Sunday against the St. Louis Gunners at St. Louis. Eighteen players, the full team since it has been cut by injuries, and Coach E.L. Lambeau will make the trip "on their own" as the Green Bay Football corporation did not sign the contract for  the game. The players will leave Friday or Saturday  morning, arriving in St. Louis the same evening. Cal Hubbard has gone on ahead to his home in Missouri for a few days but will rejoin the squad in St. Louis. Players who will take part in the game are backfield men Hank Bruder, Johnny Blood, Roger Grove, Clark Hinkle, Bob Monnett and Buckets Goldenberg, linemen Al Rose, Lavvie Dilweg, Milt Gantenbein, Clyde Van Sickle, Cal Hubbard, Claude Perry, Joe Kurth, Mike Michalske, Lon Evans, Rudy Comstock, Art Bultman and Al Sarafiny.


DEC 12 (Columbus, OH) - Glenn Presnell of the Portsmouth Spartans is scoring leader of the NFL for 1933, official statistics released today reveal. Presnell nosed out Ken Strong of the New York Giants by a margin of four points, Strong failing to score any of the Giants' 20 points against Philadelphia Sunday. Third place is held by Jim Musick of the Boston Redskins, with 44 points; fourth goes to Hal Richards of New York, and Shipwreck Kelly of Brooklyn, each having scored 43 points. Richards climaxed a brilliant touchdown outburst of recent weeks with two against Eagles on Sunday, and nosed out Buckets Goldenberg of Green Bay, who counted 42 points on seven touchdowns. Kelly, Richards and Goldenberg are tied for most touchdowns, with seven apiece, and Strong is tied with Jack Manders of the Chicago Bears for extra point boots, each having 14. Field goal supremacy is held by Manders, with six. The New York Giants won honors in scoring diversity, 11 members of that squad being included on the league list. Second honors go to the Chicago Bears, with 10, while the other clubs placed as follows: Green Bay, nine; Philadelphia and Brooklyn, eight each; Boston and Portsmouth, seven each; the Cardinals and Pittsburgh, six each, and Cincinnati, five.


DEC 12 (Chicago) - Every member of the  Chicago Cardinals team who participated in a contest with an independent team yesterday at St. Louis today was liable to suspension, according to Charles Bidwell, owner of the Chicago eleven. The Cardinals, playing under the pseudonym of Chicago All Stars, lost, 28 to 7, to the St. Louis Gunners. Participation in the game was forbidden by Bidwell, who said: "I have made no decision in the matter as yet, but every member of the team who took part in the game is liable to suspension under the league rules." Bidwell is reported to have wired Dick Nesbit, who led the All Stars, that any member of the Cardinals who stepped on the field would be indefinitely suspended. With a large crowd on hand for the game, however, the players refused to forego their plans. Bidwell said he had not determined the identity of the players who took part in the game.


DEC 12 (Milwaukee Journal) - Just one more all star team, in the deluge of all-star teams that have descended on the sport pages in the last few weeks, and they can pack football away in the mothballs for a year which, as a side thought, ought to be extremely satisfying to my friend Billy Sixty and his bowlers. Just one more team, the all-star professional team. Theoretically, the all-star professional football team is the


strongest football team in the world. It is the team that, with equal coaching, would crush any regular pro lineup in the country, and almost annihilate, of course, any college lineup. The Packers used to dominate this team. In their championship years they always had four or five men on it, regardless of who picked it, and they deserved that. This year they managed to squeeze in one. The Bears, Giants, Boston Redskins and Spartans have all taken the play away from them. The Bears and Giants, who will meet for the championship in the playoff at Chicago next Sunday, each have three men on the team, and Boston and Portsmouth each two. The Packers place Clark Hinkle. This is only an individual pick, of course, but I like to believe it would compare with any other team named.


DEC 12 (St. Louis) - Chester (Swede) Johnston, brilliant fullback of the St. Louis Gunners, may miss the game at the Public Schools Stadium Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, but he hopes not. The intrepid Swede, who injured an ankle in a game against Chicago last Sunday, has not participated in workouts since, and is being treated in hopes of playing against the Wisconsin pro eleven. Johnston is particularly desirous of meeting the Packers on the gridiron. He hails from Appleton, Wis., only a few miles from Green Bay, the home of the Packers' organization, and at one time was affiliated with the Wisconsin team. At any rate, he knows most of the Packer players and is particularly anxious to demonstrate how the Gunners are playing football in St. Louis this season. A signed contract with Curly Lambeau, coach, manager and general director of the Packers, stipulates the Green Bay squad roster here Sunday will be the same one that has been used all season. The Packers were beaten, 7 to 6, by the Chicago Bears Sunday.


DEC 13 (Green Bay) - Sometimes a team is greater in defeat than in victory. That appears like a statement that may fairly be said of the Packers' concluding league contest. It is when men have their backs to the wall that they show the real stuff of which they are made. Victory is always sweet but when we cannot always, it is well, as we lick our wounds, to reflect that our record was good and that no one who met us during the season but would testify to that fact with a hearty amen. "A pound of pluck," said President Garfield, "is worth a ton of luck," but the Packers know that when the pluck is pretty evenly divided an ounce, or even a gram, will turn the trick. In a three-column head a recent Sunday issue of the New York Times, under the caption "The Green Bay Trio" asked some questions: "How is the town of Green Bay bearing up under the loss of five football games by the once proud Packers? A successful season for the Packers was a plank in the political platform out there. Wasn't the team a municipal institution of some kind, an elementary institution, in fact?" Green Bay, we may answer, is bearing up remarkably well. It is in much better shape than that medieval warrior who wrote, "All is lost save honor", for its honor was never even in jeopardy and it has the nucleus of a brilliant team next fall. This season's result was to the Packers, just a little fire to that ancient bird called the Phoenix.


DEC 13 (St. Louis) - Two former Gunners, Dick Thornton, versatile back, and Bob Gonya, all-round lineman, who have been playing with the Philadelphia Eagles in the National League this season, will rejoin their old teammates today and will be used by Coach Gwinn Henry in the local pros' football contest with the Green Bay Packers Sunday afternoon at the Public School Stadium. Thornton, the Gunners' outstanding ground gainer last season, is just the kind of a back Henry likes, for, in addition to being a line plunger and broken field runner, Dick is a dependable blocker and a snappy thrower of forward passes. Following the close of the Gunners' 1932 season, several National League clubs tried to line up Thornton, and when this campaign got underway both the Boston Redskins and Eagles claimed his services. However, matters were straightened out and he played with the Phillies the entire season, with the exception of a short period when he was on the injured list...STARRED AT ROLLA: Having fully recovered from his leg injury, Thornton is expected to prove a valuable man to the Gunners. The Rolla ex-luminary, who was in the Miners' lineup when they battled St. Louis I. to the spectacular 33-33 tie three years ago, understands Henry's system, for his old college mentor, Coach Grant, is one of Henry's products from Missouri University. With Chester "Swede" Johnston still on the sidelines with a sprained ankle and Benny La Presta and Joe Spudich just getting over their injuries from last Sunday's game, Thornton, who was at his best against National League competition this past season, may be given an opportunity of playing more than was originally expected. Gonya, a regular Gunner end during the early season games, played tackle for the Eagles. Henry intends to use him at tackle owing to the fact that Charley Malone, Max Gladden, Chuck Delmege and George Rogge, present Gunner ends, would be hard to supplant. With Gonya listed, the Gunners now have five tackles, Sandy Sandburg, Babe Lyoin, Marion Broadstone and Joe Moore being the others. Henry sent his men through a long and brisk workout yesterday morning. He was elated over the fine physical condition of Dick Frahm, John Breidenstein and Blake Workman, the team's blockers. These players, though having roughed it up with the Chicago Cardinal All-Stars, were at their peak for their week's hardest drill. Don Moses, stellar quarterback, also was "right", his injured foot being a great deal stronger...TWO COMPLETE LINES: The Gunner coach now has two complete lines and he will put in the next two days selecting the strongest front wall combination for the Green Bay game. Curly Lambeau and his squad of 18 players will check in town Friday. The Packers will present the same array of stars against the Henrymen who held the Chicago Bears, Western Division champions of the National League, to a 7-6 score last Sunday.



DEC 14 (Green Bay) - Just one more column of football before we put the subject in mothballs for the year. Rather this will be the next-to-last column of football notes, as we still want to pass on our choice for the National league team of 22 men before we drop this conversation, but that can wait another day. Today's subject has to do with all-American professional teams, those of the 11-man variety. We aren't "sold" on 11-men All-American teams as we don't think they represent the perfect professional football team, but others like them, and, as this is an independent newspaper that gives everyone an equal chance, we'll pass on to you what others think. The first selection that we'll pass on is the all-American team chosen by Red Grange for Collyer's Eye, the snappy little sport sheet put out in Chicago every week. From which, one could get the impression that Grange likes four of his own team on the all-American. We don't agree with him, but it is his story, so 

we'll let it pass. Here's another all-American, the choice of a fellow worker, Ollie Kuechle, Milwaukee sports writer, who again covered Green Bay games this year. Not bad, Ollie, but we wouldn't agree with you on Hein of New York at center with McNally and Ookie Miller in the league; or Gibson at guard, with Hickman, Carlson and a few others in the circuit, in fact there are others, but it is your selection and it is as good as any.


DEC 14 (St. Louis) - Gwinn Henry, coach of the St. Louis Gunners, has about decided on his starting lineup for the local pros' football contest with the Green Bay Packers Sunday afternoon, at the Public Schools Stadium. The veteran coach will start a different combination from that which began hostilities against the Chicago Cardinals last Sunday. With Chester "Swede" Johnston, plunging back, still receiving daily treatments for his dislocated ankle, Henry is grooming three other ball-luggers for the fullback assignment. However, there is a possibility that Swede's ankle will be strong enough for him to break into the game...THE FULLBACK JOB: It is almost a certainty that the starting fullback will be picked from Benny La Presta, Joe Spudich and Dick Thornton, who recently rejoined the Gunners after playing the season with the Philadelphia Eagles in the National League. Don Moses,  quarterback, whose long, accurate passes and tricky drives have made him popular, and Dick Frahm and John Breidenstein, great blockers, are the other starters. Frahm, by the way, will be starting his fifteenth straight game for the Gunners. Bob Gonya, the big lineman who left the Gunners to join the Philadelphia Eagles during mid-season, made such a clever showing in his first practice since he rejoined the team that he is bidding for tackle berth and is in line to begin the game with Sandy Sandburg, the "iron man" of the line. The 18 Green Bay players and their coach, Curly Lambeau, are due in town tomorrow. If they arrive in time they will work out in the afternoon on the Gunners' practice field on the David Ranken School grounds. After making the best showing of any eleven in the National League during the last half of the championship race, the Packers, who are bringing all their regulars here for the game, are expected to prove the Gunners' toughest opponent to date. Owing to the city-wide interest, the coming game has aroused, the Gunner management last night announced that 5,000 midfield reserve seats will be put on sale today. This is the first time this season the Gunners have reserved any portion of the stadium.


DEC 15 (Green Bay) - The Chicago Bears will be playing the New York Giants for the championship of the NFL at Chicago next Sunday, but the Packers might easily be playing the Giants at Green Bay - except for the little matter of eight minutes and six inches. Final standings of the leading western division clubs for the past season were as follows:

            W   L   T  .PCT

Bears      10   2   1  .833

Portsmouth  6   5   0  .545

Green Bay   5   7   1  .418

It would have been a much different story, had the Chicago rallies against the Packers had been stamped out, and had the Packers punched the ball over for a touchdown in the opening quarter of last Sunday's game at the Illinois city...GAIN EARLY LEAD: When the Bears played the Packers here early in the season, the Bays had the situation well in hand, leading 7 to 0, with a scant few minutes left to play. Then Johnsos, Hewitt and company swung into action. "Wild Bill" tossed a pass to Johnsos, and a moment later the score was tied. The Packers had hardly settled down before Hewitt blocked a punt and chased the oval over the goal line for the touchdown which spelled defeat for the Packers. Later in the season, at Chicago, the Packers were coasting comfortably with a 7 to 0 lead, when Hewitt and his pals again got busy. The trick touchdown pass, this time to Kerr, netted the tying touchdown, and Jack Manders' late field goal upset the Bays again...CAUGHT FROM BEHIND: Last Sunday at Chicago, Clark Hinkle took the opening kickoff and hauled it back 92 yards, only to be dragged down by the troublesome Karr a few yards from the Bear goal line. Four plays later, the line still was uncrossed, the margin being six inches. Scratching those spectacular rallies from the books, and eliminating last week's tight touchdown margin, the Packers would have won all three games with the Bears, and here' s the way the final standings would have appeared:

            W   L   T  .PCT

Green Bay   8   4   1  .667

Bears       7   5   1  .637

Portsmouth  6   5   0  .545

A little bit of trouble can go a long way.


DEC 15 (Green Bay) - "On their own" to pick up some spending money for Christmas, the Green Bay Packers will meet the St. Louis Gunners in an exhibition game at St. Louis Sunday afternoon. Coach Curly Lambeau and 18 players will make the trip. The party will include Hank Bruder, Johnny Blood, Roger Grove, Buckets Goldenberg, Clark Hinkle, Bob Monnett, Lavvie Dilweg, Al Rose, Milton Gantenbein, Claude Perry, Cal Hubbard, Joe Kurth, Clyde Van Sickle, Mike Michalske, Rudy Comstock, Lon Evans, Art Bultman and Al Sarafiny. Lambeau will leave for the west coast immediately after the game to lineup material for next year's eleven.


DEC 15 (Chicago) - Joe Carr, president of the National Professional Football league, Thursday called a special meeting of the club owners here Saturday to discuss business and proposals for an earlier closing date in the schedule and changes in the rules to open up the game. All club owners will be here to attend the post-championship game Sunday between the New York Giants and Chicago Bears. "It has been proposed that we open the 1934 season just as early as possible and close it the first Sunday in December to insure playable weather for the post-championship game," President Carr said. "This year we opened up on September 15 and closed last Sunday. We've had a good break in weather this year, but may not be so fortunate again. Also it is the tendency in our league to open the game up. Football fans want to see that football, they want to see spectacular plays, kicks and long runs for touchdowns. We are going to do our best to give 'em what they want." President Carr said the 1933 season was the most successful in the league's history, and that he expected all to retain their franchises for 1934.


DEC 15 (St. Louis) - Eighteen Green Bay Packers are scheduled to participate in a late afternoon workout today on the David Ranken Jr. Mechanical School field, Finney and Newstead, in preparation for the professional football contest with Coach Gwinn Henry's St. Louis Gunners, Sunday afternoon, at the Public Schools Stadium. The Packers are due in St. Louis sometime today. The Gunners will end a week of rigid training with sessions this morning and tomorrow morning. Coach Curly Lambeau sent words to the Gunner management yesterday that the same eleven players who started against the Chicago Bears, Western Division champions of the National League, will open hostilities against the local pros. The Packers lost to the Bears by a 7 to 6 count. Lavvie Dilweg and Milt Gantenbein, ends; Joseph Kurth, Cal Hubbard and Claude Perry, tackles; Mike Michalske, Lon Evans, Rudy Comstock and Clyde Van Sickle, guards, and Art Bultman and Al Sarafiny, centers, and Hank "Hard Luck" Bruder", Clark Hinkle, Roger Grove, Johnny Blood, Buckets Goldenberg and Robert Monnett, backs, are the players who will be in the invaders' party. Henry will alternate Benny La Presta, Dick Thornton and Joe Spudich at fullback. La Presta and Spudich are gradually formatting about their ailments and are due to engage in hard sessions for the next two days. Blake Workman, the versatile halfback, will be counted on heavily in the coming game, despite the fact that Dick Frahm and John Breidenstein are to start at the halfbacks. Don Moses, whose passes have pulled the Gunners out of several tight spots this season, and Charley Malone, elongated end who has done most of the receiving, have been drilling on their aerial attack all week and will continue to do so in the remaining workouts. It is Henry's plan to present a baffling attack, featuring passes, long and short one; line plunges, skirts around the end and some tricky formations, against the Packers and Chicago Bears who call a week from Sunday. Capt. Sampson, manager of the Gunners, reports that the 5,000 reserved seats which were placed on sale yesterday are going fast, and indications are that another record breaking crowd will be on hand.


DEC 16 (St. Louis) - The St. Louis Gunners' starting lineup for their professional football contest with the Green Bay Packers tomorrow afternoon at the Public Schools Stadium was announced last night by Coach Gwinn Henry. Benny La Presta, fullback; Don Moses, quarterback, and Dick Frahm and John Breidenstein, halfbacks, were selected as the opening backfield quartet. La Presta, former St. Louis University star and a member of the Boston Redskins in the National League this season, recently joined the Gunners. In his first game he was injured early but went well while he was in. Last week he topped off his afternoon's play by running back a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown. In gaining the right to start against the Packers La Presta came through brilliantly all week. He will share the assignment with Dick Thornton, another versatile back, and Joe Spudich, the team's triple threat man. It is possible that Chester "Swede" Johnston, the Gunners' chief ground gainer, will break into the game at a later stage but his sprained ankle will keep him on the bench at the opening of hostilities. Although Bob Gonya, who recently rejoined the Gunners after playing with the Philadelphia Eagles, delivered in great style during the past week. George "Babe" Lyon, 245-pound lineman, will start at one of the tackles. He will pair with Sandy Sandburg, the eleven's "iron-man". Henry is well pleased with Gonya's work, but Lyon has played so well during recent weeks that the Gunner coach is not going to make any changes in his line. Homer Reynolds and Leonard McGirl, guards; Max Gladden and Charley Malone, ends, and Eddie Kawal, center, are the other starters. With Blake Workman and Cowboy Kyle, backs, and George Rogge and Chuck Delmege, ends; Marion Broadston, tackle; Ray Jennison, guard, and Cecil Muellerleile, center, in tip-top shape, Henry will be able to send additional strong players against the Packers. Curly Lambeau and his Green Bay gridders did not arrive in time for a workout yesterday but they are down for a training session today. The Packer coach sent word yesterday that his men would be late in arriving. In the same message he mentioned that all are in excellent physical condition and he will be able to send the same players against the Gunners who battled the Chicago Bears to a 7 to 6 score last week. With weather permitting, it now seems a certainty that another record-breaking crowd will witness the Gunner-Packer game. All the Gunners ticket offices have tripled their advance sale over the demands of previous games.


DEC 16 (St. Louis) - Green Bay's Packers were here today for a game with the St. Louis Gunners Sunday afternoon. With good weather the contest is expected to draw 5,000 or more fans. The Packers stepped through a brisk workout this morning before a crowd of St. Louis fans. All members of the team were on hand and appeared in good shape for the test. With Swede Johnson, former Appleton high school star, setting the pace, the Gunners have won several games recently. They defeated a team of Chicago All-Stars last Sunday. This squad was composed mostly of members of the Chicago All-Stars last Sunday. This squad was composed mostly of members of the Chicago Cardinal eleven. Johnson was injured in last Sunday's game and may not be able to play tomorrow. Coach Gwinn Henry, former Missouri university mentor, has the St. Louis team on edge for the game. His squad boasts victories over the Oklahoma Chiefs, Memphis and several other independent elevens in the south and southwest. Coach E.L. Lambeau planned to start his best men and "shoot the works" in the hopes of gaining an early lead and holding it.


DEC 17 (St. Louis) - The Green Bay Packers, who held the Chicago Bears, Western Division champions of the National League, to a 7 to 6 score last week, will face Coach Gwinn Henry's St. Louis Gunners in the local pros' fifteenth contest of the season this afternoon at the Public Schools Stadium. The kickoff is set for 2 o'clock. Curly Lambeau, who has coached the Packers for the past 15 years, sent his charges through a brisk workout yesterday afternoon on the David Ranken Jr. Mechanical Trades School field. The Packers won the National League gridiron championship in 1929, 1930 and 1931; finished second last year and were in the tick of the pennant fight this season. They were regarded as one of the strongest elevens in the National League during the final half of the 1933 championship race. They walloped Pittsburgh, 47 to 0, and Philadelphia, 35 to 9, in their two most overwhelming triumphs of this season...PACKERS A HUSKY TEAM: Lavvie Dilweg, of Marquette University, and Milton Gantenbein of Wisconsin, end, are the lightest players on the line. Each weighs 200 pounds, but their mates of the front wall of big, ponderous athletes. Cal Hubbard of Geneva College, whose weight is close to 280 pounds, is the biggest man in pro football. Hubbard, by the way, hails from Keytesville, Mo. The Packers' other tacklers, Claude Perry of Alabama University, and Joe Kurth, all-American from Notre Dame, also are huge in size. August Michalske of Penn State and Rudy Comstock of Georgetown, guards, are playing their eighth season in the National League. They, too, are husky warriors. The Packers' centers, Arthur Bultman, another Marquette U. product, and Al Sarafint, a hometown product, are the youngsters of the team, but they have proved to be "power houses" this season. Sarafiny weighs 235 pounds. Six fleet, but sturdy, backs will be used against the Gunners. Buckets Goldenberg, former Wisconsin fullback; Robert Monnett, Michigan State ace of a few years ago, and Clark Hinkle, Bucknell star, have been largely responsible for the Packers' recent success. Goldenberg has tremendous drive and Monnett and Hinkle rate with the best broken field runners in the big-time circuit. Monnett ran 92 yards through the entire Bear team last week for a touchdown. Other backs who will be seen in action against St. Louis are Hank "Hard Luck" Bruder, former Northwestern University plunger; Roger Grove, from Michigan State, and Johnny Blood, veteran of many years, quarterback...LA PRESTA TO START FOR GUNNERS: Henry is starting Benny La Presta, ex-St. Louis University flash, in the place of Chester "Swede" Johnston, who is on the shelf with an injured ankle. However, Swede's injury is healing rapidly and there is the possibility that he may break into the game during the late stages. Dick Thornton, Philadelphia Eagle this season, rejoined his old team during the past week and he and Joe Spudich, triple threat back, will assist La Presta in holding down Johnston's assignment. Don Moses, accurate throwing quarterback, and Dick Frahm and John Breidenstein, blocking halfback, as usual, will be at their places in the local battle front. Henry permitted Blake Workman, another versatile back, and Cowboy Kyle, the prancing ball lugger, to run through all the plays this week and they, too, are being counted on heavily in the Packer battle. With the line reinforces by the presence of Bob Gonya, who recently returned to his old team after a stay with the Philadelphia eleven. Henry looks forward to his front wall causing the invaders some trouble. Gonya came through beautifully at tackle during the past week, but George "Babe" Lyon and Sandy Sandburg, whose play has bordered on the spectacular, will get the starting assignments.


DECEMBER 17 (Milwaukee Journal) - It will be anything but a snap for the Packers when they face the St. Louis Gunners in an exhibition game at St. Louis, Mo., Sunday afternoon. In fact, unless the Packers are pretty much on their toes it may develop into quite a surprise. The Gunners, coached by Gwinn Henry, late of Missouri, are one of the strongest independent professional clubs in the country. To knock off a National league entry isn't anything new to them. In the course of a season in which they have won 11 games, lost one and tied two, they have defeated both the Brooklyn Dodgers, 21 to 2, and the Chicago Cardinals, 28 to 7. They lost their only game to the Cincinnati Reds early in the season, 7 to 0. The clubs they have beaten include the Des Moines All-Stars, 21-0; Memphis Tigers, 14-3; Oklahoma City Chiefs, 19-0; Chicago Shamrocks, 7-6 and 19-6; Detroit Indians, 41-0; Fort Atkinson Blackhawks, 20-0; Cleveland Skeletons, 61-0;


St. Louis Public High Stadium. A public school facility which operated in the area for many years was the Public Schools Stadium on Kings highway north of St. Louis Avenue. It fulfilled a long felt need for a centralized location for high school athletics and was dedicated in 1928.


Tulsa All-Stars, 33-7; Chicago Cardinals, 28-7, and Brooklyn Dodgers, 21-2. They were tied by the Memphis Tigers, 13-13, and the Oklahoma City Chiefs, 0-0, in return engagements. The Packers are the first of several other National league clubs that will play in St. Louis before the first of the year. The Gunners will also meet the Chicago Bears December 17 and the Cincinnati Reds in a return game December 24. It won't hurt their gate any at these games to show a victory over Green Bay, so you may guess they haven't planned any tea party for Sunday.


DECEMBER 18 (St. Louis) - The Green Bay Packers blanked the St. Louis Gunners, 21 to 0, Sunday before 16,000 fans, the largest crowd ever to witness a professional football game in St. Louis. The bulky Packer aggregation broke the Gunners' string of 10 successive victories and inflicted the second defeat of the season. Swede Johnson, a bulwark of the Gunners team, was on the sidelines with an ankle injury, but even his smashing line drives would probably have availed little against the attack of the Packers, who held the St. Louis team to 98 yards gained from scrimmage and three first downs. The Packers pushed over three touchdowns and a field goal after a scoreless first period. Hinkle passed to Blood from the 35-yard stripe across the goal for the first scoring in the second quarter. Hinkle booted a field goal and Bruder plugged over from the one-foot line in the third. Gantenbein raced 60 yards after intercepting a pass in the closing minutes of the game for a touchdown.



DEC 18 (St. Louis) - Coach Lambeau and his Packers football machine were on their way back to Green Bay today after pummeling the St. Louis Gunners, 21 to 0, here yesterday in a professional football contest. A record crowd of 16,000 persons saw the grid huskies that made Green Bay famous score an overwhelming victory in their last game of the season. Running over, around and through the Gunners, the Packers produced the most sensational football seen here this year. In riding the crest of the national game they have won in the past, Green Bay snapped the consecutive winning streak of the Gunners, who before the opening kickoff yesterday had scored ten straight victories. After a scoreless first period, the Packers opened up a spectacular offensive display that gave them a touchdown in each succeeding quarter. The first score resulted from a pass, Hinkle to Blood, for 35 yards in the second period...HINKLE KICKS GOAL: Continuing their line battering during the second half, the Packers drove down within 20 yards of the Gunners' goal, and, when the St. Louis defense stiffened, Hinkle dropped back and booted a field goal in the third period. Later in this period a superior running attack behind a line that never 


faltered started the Packer eleven on a sustained march from midfield for its second touchdown. Hank Bruder, former Northwestern backfield ace, then plunged over from the one foot line. It remained for Milt Gantenbein to warm the hearts of the shivering fans in the fourth quarter. The 200 pound end snatched a pass that bounced from the hands of Blake Workman, and ran 60 yards for a touchdown. Snaring the free ball out of the air in front of the Packer bench. Gantenbein squirmed away from a swarm of tacklers, slashed his way down the field behind the peerless blocking of his mates, stiff-armed and then outran the last pursuing Gunners. The National league gridders allowed the Gunners only three first downs and a mere 98 yards from scrimmage. Arriving here Saturday and practicing only once for yesterday's game, the Packers were a bit slow in hitting their stride after the opening kickoff. During the scoreless first quarter, the St. Louisans made most of their yardage. Superiority of the Packers asserted itself through the rest of the game, however, when they uncorked dazzling passes, line smashing that ripped the Gunner forward wall to shreds and vicious tackling that kept the St. Louis pro eleven easily in tow...GOLDENBERG IS STAR: Standouts in the Green Bay squad were Buckets Goldenberg, a pile driving fullback, whose wild line puncturing tactics were untamed and Bruder and Hinkle, who led the Packers' aerial attack, cracked through the Gunners line at will and minimized the St. Louis gains in the secondary defense. Cal Hubbard, Green Bay beef trust at tackle; Red Bultman, center; Lavvie Dilweg, end, and Johnny Blood drew rousing cheers for their deadly effectiveness on both the attack and defense. The Gunners, playing without the services of Swede Johnson, brilliant fullback, started off well. In the first few minutes, a pass, Workman to Moses, good for 50 yards, placed the ball on the Packers' 16 yard line and this pair of backs succeeding in working down to the 7 yard line, at this point Moses was thrown for a loss and on the next play Workman's pass to Malone was intercepted on the goal line by Hank Bruder. Frahm, St. Louis halfback, almost got loose in the second period, running a kickoff back 60 yards. He was stopped by Grove, Packer safety, however. Mannerisms of the Packers and their coach gave St. Louis fans an idea how the Green Bay team has reached its heights in pro football. Lambeau, pacing up and down the Packer bench, kept his huskies in a spirit that didn't let up through the game. Among the spectators at yesterday's game was Guy Lombardo, noted orchestra leader who is filling an engagement here. It was his first game this season. Exchanging his violin for a football, he posed with football players for news photographers.


DEC 20 (Green Bay) - A friend asked the other day what professional football players do in the off season. The answer is - just about everything. Most of the Packer players engage in professions, trade or business. On the squad this year were a baseball umpire, several salesmen, a steel mill employee, an attorney, two insurance men, a truck drive and some who joined the ranks of the unemployed. Lavvie Dilweg returned to his law practice here, Milt Gantenbein came back to Green Bay for a short visit and will work either here or at Madison as a salesman. Al Rose departed for Texas for a short visit but plans to return here to work and play basketball after the holidays. Cal Hubbard is at Keetsville, Mo., for some hunting and rest before he starts work again next summer as a baseball umpire. Claude Perry is in Alabama now but expects to return here to work. Joe Kurth is at home in Madison, in the insurance business. Lon Evans is in Fort Worth, Texas, where he plans to work with his father who is in business. This is Lon's first year out of school. Mike Michalske makes his home here but left today for Ohio for the holidays. He will return here to work and play basketball after the holidays. Rudy Comstock is employed in the steel mill at Warren, Ohio. Van Sickle plans to work in an insurance office at Morris, Okla., his hometown. Red Bultman, whose home is in Green Bay, plans to work here. Al Sarafiny returned to Iron River, Wis., where he will spend the winter. Roger Grove returned to Green Bay and will remain here, working and playing basketball and, incidentally, he's as sweet a basketball player as there is in this vicinity. Hank Bruder is visiting friends and relatives at Peoria, Ill., now, but plans to be back after the holidays to play basketball and work here. Bob Monnett, just out of college, has no definite plans but hopes to find employment either here or at Bucyrus, Ohio. Buckets Goldenberg is a wrestler and does well at that trade in the off-season. Clark Hinkle works in his hometown, Toronto, Ohio, as a salesman. Johnny Blood drifts around the country doing a little of everything. He is now on his way to the Pacific coast. Arnold Herber is engaged in business with the De Pere Beverage company. Most of the players are able to save some of the money they make playing football and use it if work is dull in the off-season. The game has produced few "Athletic tramps" in recent years, as most of the men engaged in it are looking forward to careers in business after a few years of professional play. Practically all have college degrees and are well qualified for business life, but enjoy the game and like to play it a few years before settling down.


DEC 20 (Green Bay) - To show appreciation of Packer football broadcasts, a huge imitation postal card, measuring six feet seven inches by 49 inches, has been prepared by H.S. "Red" Walters and will be sent to Russ Winnie of WTMJ in the near future. All fans in the city who have enjoyed the broadcasts during the past season are asked to sign the card which will be mailed when it is full. It is at the Congress today and will be there through Thursday. Friday and Saturday it will be at Dashner's. Other sponsors with Walters are Martin Engels and W. Tom White.

1933 NFL CHAMPIONSHIP (December 17 at Chicago - 26,000)

CHICAGO BEARS (10-2-1) 23, NEW YORK GIANTS (11-3) 21 - In 1932, the Chicago Bears defeated the

The NFL first created the league's East and West Divisions in 1933, which brought George Halas' Chicago Bears to face John Mara's New York Giants at Wrigley Field to determine the 1933 NFL Champion. The two team presidents are captured with the league president, Joe Carr. All three men were considered pioneers of the NFL's great success. Source: Heritage Auctions


Portsmouth Spartans (now the Detroit Lions) 9-0 in the National Football League's first post-season game ever. During the off-season, sweeping changes occurred to the NFL, one of which called for the league to be divided into two divisions.  At the end of the regular season, the NFL held a championship game that pitted the two division winners in the title bout to determine the world champions of pro football. So, on December 17, 1933, the Bears hosted the New York Giants at Wrigley Field in Chicago in the NFL's inaugural championship game. The game, witnessed by an estimated 26,000 fans, lived up to its billing. The contest featured lots of offense by both teams. After two field goals by the Bears' Jack Manders, the Giants responded with the first touchdown in NFL championship game history when Hall of Famer Morris "Red" Badgro connected with Harry Newman on a 29-yard touchdown play to put the Giants in the lead, 7-6. The game remained close throughout the second half as well. The Bears went ahead on a Manders' 15-yard field goal before the Giants responded with a one-yard run by Max Krause to regain the lead, 14-9. Hall of Fame fullback Bronko Nagurski led the charge as he gained 65 yards rushing on the day but more importantly threw an 8-yard pass to end Billy Karr to put the Bears in front by two in the third quarter. The Giants once again pulled ahead when Newman hauled in his second touchdown pass of the game, an eight-yarder from Hall of Famer Ken Strong. Then, in the closing minutes of the game and the Giants leading 21-16, Nagurski threw 14 yards downfield to fellow Hall of Famer Bill Hewitt who quickly and wisely lateraled the ball to Karr who raced into the end zone to give the Bears the victory. For their efforts, each member of the Bears earned a whopping $210.34 while the Giants players were awarded $140.22 each. By comparison, each player participating in the 2006 championship games will received $37,500. The winners advance to Super Bowl XLI where each member of the winning team takes home $78,000 and each player on the losing team receives $40,000.




Ottawa 14, HAMILTON 13 (7000) - Ottawa won for the first time in Big Four play since October 6, 1928 when they defeated Montreal 10-8, and won in Hamilton for the first time since October 9, 1926 (8-6).

1933 GREY CUP GAME (Saturday December 9 at Sarnia - ATT: 2,751)

TORONTO ARGONAUTS 4, SARNIA IMPERIALS 3 - The Grey Cup returned to its all-Eastern roots in 1933 after the Canadian Rugby Union decided to change its playoff format. The winner from Western Canada had been given a bye to the championship since 1921. This year it was decided that the winner from the West would face the Toronto Argonauts in a semi-final, while the Sarnia Imperials were given an automatic invite to the final. The Winnipegs ended the Regina Roughriders’ reign out West, and faced Toronto in the semi. Although the Pegs gave the Argos a scare, Toronto prevailed 13-0 to advance to the final. Despite the advent of the forward pass, 1933 was the first time no touchdowns were scored in a Grey Cup. Toronto outlasted Sarnia in a defensive struggle, and although most people felt the Imperials proved themselves to be a better team, it was the Argonauts who were awarded the trophy. The only Grey Cup ever staged in Sarnia was played on a frozen, snow-covered field. The Imperials dominated the first half, leading 1-0 at halftime. Sarnia added another point in the third quarter. But the complexion of the game soon changed, as Tuffy Griffiths blocked Bummer Stirling’s kick on the Sarnia 40-yard line, giving the Argos the ball. Jack Taylor took a lateral pass from Andy Mullen and ran 20 yards around the end. Teddy Morris then gained seven yards. With the ball straight in front of the goal posts, Tommy Burns lifted the ball between the uprights for a Toronto field goal. Sarnia tied the score in the fourth quarter on a rouge, but Toronto answered back with a single of their own, which was helped set up by a Sarnia fumble. It turned out to be the winning point as the Argos held on to the win, but not before the Imperials threatened in the final minute. Rocky Parsaca threw a pass to Norman Perry, who ran across the field and down the sideline. Toronto’s Ab Box dove at Perry at the Toronto 45-yard line, but he kept going until he was finally stopped five yards from the goal line. But the ball was brought back to the Toronto 45 as referee Jo-Jo Stirrett ruled that Perry stepped out of bounds. Box saved the Argonauts throughout the game. His long punts regained lost yards for Toronto, and on many occasions he proved to be the last line of defence, making huge tackles to prevent potential scoring plays for the Imperials.
