NOV 9 (New York) - Reports that the National and American pro football leagues will amalgamate to cut down expenses are emphatically denied by C.C. Pyle, owner of the New York Yankees. Two teams in the American circuit have withdrawn because of financial difficulties. "The league is intrinsically strong," Pyle said. "We had bad luck on the weather but that kind of thing can't go on forever."
PACKERS STILL IN RUNNING FOR NATIONAL GRID TITLE
NOV 10 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - With the stats championship title tucked away again, the Packers are gunning for national honors and there is still a chance that the Big Bay Blues will be up there at the finish for the playoff games between the first four leading clubs. Right now the Packers are in fourth position with only the Bears, Philadelphia and Pottsville ahead of them. Of the teams underneath, Providence, New York and Detroit can be most feared. At the present time, Duluth is trailing the Packers, only a few points behind, but the Eskimos have some tough going ahead and it wouldn't be surprising if Nevers & Co. were thrown for a double loss over the weekend as they face Philadelphia on Saturday and Pottsville Sunday...THREE TOUGH HURDLES: However, the Bays have three tough hurdles to leap as they are booked to mingle with the Bears, Philadelphia and Detroit. The only "breezer" on the Bays' schedule is the skirmish with Racine on Sunday and this isn't apt to be as easy as it looks. In order to be in there at the finish, Green Bay must win, at least, three of these games. To some this looks like an impossible task but, if the injury jinx departs for the rest of the season, the Bays have a fighting chance. The Badger state champs
tackle the Bears, Yellowjackets and Panthers in a week which is a task that is going to bring out the best in the Blue and Gold...FACING ROCKY BUMPS: The Bears are facing some rocky bumps. After the Card game Thursday, the Bruins play Milwaukee Sunday. On Nov. 21, the Bays tangle with the Halasmen. Thanksgiving Day, the Bruins joust the Cardinals again and the Sunday after they meet the Canton Bulldogs. Saturday, December 4, the Bears perform in Philadelphia and Sunday, Dec. 5, the Chicagoans tackle New York at the Polo Grounds. This Saturday, the Yellowjackets meet Duluth. A week later, Dayton invades the Quaker stronghold. Thanksgiving Day sees the Packers in action at Frankford and the Saturday after, Detroit has it out with Guy Chamberlain's crew...POTTSVILLE SITTING PRETTY: Pottsville, so far as the schedule is concerned, is sitting easier than the other topnotchers. The Maroons tangle with Duluth on Sunday. (This is the day after the Eskimos meet Philadelphia.) Hammond is the Miners' opponent on Sunday, November 21. Providence plays in Pottsville on Turkey Day while on December 4, the Maroons invade Hartford for a game with the Blues.
NOV 10 (Rockford, IL) - Mr. and Mrs. Rex Enright are the proud parents of a baby girl, born Tuesday morning. Both mother and child are doing nicely. Rex Enright is a former star at Notre Dame and he is now playing pro football with the famous Green Bay, Wis. Packers. He was home for the occasion but left soon afterwards to resume practice with the team.
NOV 10 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Packer-Racine game was called off at noon today. The mysterious Chicagoans, who were supposed to buy the Racine club, failed to come across with the purchase money and their option expired at 11 am today. George Reutz, president of the Racine Fans' association, has called quits and he told the Green Bay management that no attempt would be made to stage the game in Racine. The Packer management is making every effort for another game for Sunday, which if arranged, will be played in Green Bay. Definite announcement will be made within the next 24 hours.
