Martinkovic recovered for Green Bay. The lone Washington score came when big Chuck Drazenovich plunged over from the four yard line. George Thomas converted. The scoring drive of 54 yards was longest of the game. LeBaron, who punted well except for one boot, got the Packers in trouble several times with fine spot kicking but they were always able to fight out successfully. The Packers snuffed out a late Washington drive that threatened to change the tide. From their own 45-yard line, with LeBaron passing to Thomas and Drazenovich ramming the tackles, the Redskins moved down to the Packers’ 28 where the Green Bay crew put an end to the ramming. Green Bay was outdone pretty much in statistics. The Packers made only one first down the first half and wound up with a total of only four against 12 for Washington. Rushing, Green Bay was held to a net of 52 yards, 30 of them in the first half. Washington also had a tough go on the ground, netting only 102 yards. Parilli completed three of 10 passes for 37 yards, Washington eight of 23 for 86…CANADEO GETS 43 YARDS: Tony Canadeo, the 32-yard old veteran of 10 pro campaigns, ran the ball 12 times for 43 yards, best for the Packers. Drazenovich was tops for both teams with 63 yards on 14 rushes. Dan Sandifer stood out along with Dillon on fine defensive play. The former Louisiana State ace repeatedly came in fast to nail Redskins near the line of scrimmage. Curly Lambeau, long-time head man at Green Bay before resigning in 1950, used the great Sammy Baugh only to hold the ball for the extra point by Thomas, but he continued to wheel in and out his younger stars in an effort to pull the game out of the fire. Parilli, who handled the Packer punting expertly, averaging 39 yards on 10 kicks, put the heat on Washington in the second quarter when he booted out on the 12-yard line. The Redskins could move only to the 16 from which point LeBaron got off his short kick.

STEELERS CUT 3 PLAYERS
SEPT 15 (Olean, NY) - Three linemen of the Pittsburgh Steelers were released today on the eve of the pro grid club's departure for their final two preseason games. The athletes lopped from the roster were tackles Walter Szot and Dick Mundinger and end Pat Swithwitck. Szot was trying a comeback after playing service ball with the Marines last season. Mundinger is a rookie from Minnesota, picked up only last week from the Chicago Bears. Swithwick, from St. Norbert's College, Wisconsin, was drafted last winter. When they fly to Minneapolis tomorrow for Wednesday night's exhibition against the Green Bay Packers, Coach Joe Bach will leave four injured athletes behind. They are fullback Ed Modzelewski, tackle Ernie Stautner, end Jack Butler and guard Lynn Lynch. After the Packer contest the team will head south to Shreveport, La., to play the Chicago Bears on Saturday night. In previous meetings with the same rivals the Bachmen beat Green Bay, 7-6, but lost to the Bruins, 14-9.
PACKERS TAKE ON PITT IN FINAL NON-LEAGUER
SEPT 16 (Minneapolis-Green Bay Press-Gazette) – The Green Bay Packers close their 1952 non-conference football schedule against the pesky Pittsburgh Steelers here Wednesday night. The Packers will be looking for their second straight non-league victory, and, at the same time, some revenge on the Steelers. Pittsburgh nosed out Green Bay, 7-6, in Latrobe, Pa., Aug. 29. The Packers arrived here Monday night in good spirits, the result of their 13 to 7 victory over the Washington Redskins in Kansas City Sunday. With no practice time available Monday, the Packers had to loosen up sore muscles and prepare for the Pittsburghs at the same time in a long workout at Parade grounds this afternoon. The Steelers were due in this afternoon and likely will toil under the arcs tonight. The Packers suffered one serious injury in the Washington game – a sprained thumb for quarterback Tobin Rote early in the first quarter. Ronzani said today that “Tobin will be lost until the opener against the Bears.” Which means that rookie quarterback Babe Parilli will have to carry the entire quarterbacking load against the Steelers. Parilli got his first real baptism when Rote went out last Sunday, finishing off the contest. Ronzani said that Parilli “looked good” against the Redskins. “It was tough working for him because we were in the hole a good share of the time; he played it conservative because of the close score,” Gene said. Everybody got into the Washington game except veteran tackle Joe Spencer, whose knee hasn’t been recovering to treatment, and rookie halfback Roger Stephens. Spencer has seen little action since the training program started late in July. The Steelers will be making their first appearance since their “rough” contest against the San Francisco Forty Niners last week. Eleven players sustained injuries. Missing the game will be Ed (Big Mo) Modzelewski, the freshman All-American from Maryland, who will be out a week from a groin injury. Halfback Lynn Chandnois, who suffered leg troubles against ‘Frisco, will see only limited action. The Steelers lost halfback Harold Payne in the Forty Niner game for the entire season. Payne suffered a brain concussion and was in critical condition for a short time after the game. Pittsburgh will have a busy week. After playing the Packers, the Steelers move down to Shreveport, La., to battle the Chicago Bears Saturday night. Wednesday night’s encounter may draw more than 19,000 fans, although sponsors are expecting considerable opposition from the Graziano-Davey fight which will be televised in these parts. The game is the second annual contest sponsored by the Catholic Welfare association. Last year’s opener between the Packers and Forty Niners drew slightly over 20,000. The Packers are headquartering at the Nicolet hotel here. They will leave on the Milwaukee Road Hiawatha at 7:50 Thursday morning and arrive in Green Bay on the Milwaukee Road at 4:50 Thursday evening.
OVERTIME PRACTICE PAID OFF FOR PACKERS AGAINST REDSKINS
SEPT 16 (Green Bay) - Two facts are bubbling in our cocktail today: (1) The Packers worked overtime in practice last week and (2) the Packers won their first game this season in Kansas City Sunday. There seems to be a direct connection between the two positives. Last Wednesday during stifling heat, defensive end Ab Wimberly spent most of his time catching passes from Tobin Rote and Babe Parilli while giving a visiting defensive back a professional test. As this was going on, fullbacks Fred Cone and Bill Reichardt were kicking field goals from 20 to 50 yards out. The next day, the Packers put on pads despite more heat and topped off the regular drill with a long session on the tackling dummy – not to mention more FG kicking by Cone and Reichardt. Defensive line coach Tarz Taylor sent the athletes into the dressing room when he thought each had shown the proper tackling form. One of the first to leave was Dan Sandifer. So what happened in Kansas City? Wimberly turned out to be the pass catching hero; Cone and Reichardt each kicked field goals; and Sandifer came up repeatedly from his safety spot to make tackles at the line of scrimmage. It all added up to a 13-7 squeak over Curly Lambeau’s Washington Redskins. Wimberly’s TD catch must have been a horrible surprise to the Washingtons whose scouts undoubtedly reported Wimberly as the Packers’ leading defensive end. The contest apparently served as a confidence-gainer for at least two Packers – Reichardt and quarterback Babe Parilli. Bill must have had new respect for his right foot after kicking that 42-yard field goal – a healthy shot for a simon-pure. After veteran Tobin Rote was hurt, Coach Gene Ronzani probably said something like this to Parilli: “Here’s your chance, let’s see what you can do.” Parilli replaced Tobin early in the first quarter and guided the seemingly held-down Packer offense the rest of the game. The manner in which the Packers defeated the Redskins didn’t exactly leave anybody in hysterics but the main point is that the Packers won. The triumph cracked an 11-game losing streak – seven in league competition in ’51 and four non-leaguers this campaign. In addition, the win must have given the Packers as a team, new confidence. The Packers set some sort of record by winning a contest with only four first downs and 89 yards by rushing and passing. The Packers threw only 10 passes which also seems something of a record in view of the fact that the Bays set a new mark last fall by throwing 478 passes in 12 games - an average of just under 40 per. The Packers went through the game without fumbling or having a pass intercepted. Which is a far cry from the prevoous Sunday's toil in Chicago when the Packers fumbled four times and had five passes intercepted. Since resigning as head coach here early in 1950, Lambeau has discovered the Packers as a jinx. The Green Bays have beaten his clubs in three straight non-league games by a total of 12 points - the difference all being on field goals. The Packers downed Lambeau's Chicago Cardinals by 17-14 scores in 1950-51, and, of course, the difference over the Lambeau Redskins was two FG's Sunday 13-7. The Packers meet their founder and head coach for 31 years for the first time in league competition in Milwaukee Sunday, Oct. 5. Long live the Jinx!
PACKERS GIVING BLOOD FOR GI'S
SEPT 16 (Green Bay) - Some 30 coaches and members of the Green Bay Packers football team have singed up as volunteers to donate blood to the Red Cross when the bloodmobile unit returns here for its fifth visit next week. Coach Gene Ronzani, a three-time donor himself, and members of the football squad are scheduled to give a pint of blood each on the opening day of the four-day collection period next Tuesday afternoon. Although the Packers play the Chicago Bears in the first conference game of the season the following Sunday, Ronzani said giving the blood will have little effect on the members of the squad as long as they can donate it on Tuesday.
PACKERS STILL A JINX TO 'COUSIN CURLY' - CONSERVATISM PAID OFF AGAINST REDSKINS
SEPT 16 (Milwaukee Sentinel-Lloyd Larson) - If and when Curly Lambeau and his new boss, George Marshall of the Washington Redskins, come to the parting of the ways, Green Bay Packer followers probably will start a let's-keep-Curly-in-the-pro-league movement. Cousin Curly, you know, has been mighty helpful to the Packers since leaving his old stomping grounds early in 1950. More helpful, someone might be unkind enough to suggest, than in his last years as coach at the Bay. That's beside the point, of course. But the fact that the Packers have won three out of three games from Lambeau-coached teams is very much to the point. They beat his Chicago Cardinals in 1950 and 1951, each time by 17-14, and stayed in the groove by edging out his Redskins at Kansas City Sunday, 13-7. Conservatism was the keynote as the Packers, in their third year under Gene Ronzani, chalked up a mighty welcome victory - first in their third season under Gene Ronzani. Almost unheard of conservatism for pro ball. But it paid off. Which is a big thing. Besides, there were good reasons for practically going underground to break the drought. First, the boys were just too reckless for their own good the preceding week against the Cardinals and paid a heavy penalty. They threw it wildly and handled it too loosely much too often. Result: five murderous interceptions and four fumbles. "We're going to throw only when we have a reasonable opening and we're going to hang on to that ball if we don't do another thing," said Ronzani before the Redskin game. "The boys seem to have gone pass crazy. That's something we're going to straighten out in a hurry."...NO MISTAKES - NO DEFEAT: The Packers were the direct opposite of pass crazy. They threw only 10 times - something of a modern record on a dry field and under a bright sun. And they weren't flipping the ball around on running plays or handling it like the traditional loaf of bread. Emphasis on ball possession showed up in the statistics. Not once did they lose the ball on an intercepted pass or a fumble. In other words, they didn't make the costly mistakes that usually lose ball games. So they won. Another important factor in the Bays' switch to the old Army game - conservatism it is - was the schedule. They have another tough game coming up Wednesday night at Minneapolis - a return battle with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Two games in three days is a tough assignment for any team. For the Packers, currently seriously undermanned because of injuries, it's on the brutal side. As much as he wants to turn the tables on the Steelers, Ronzani still can't afford to pull all the stops. He wants everybody in shape for the league opener with the Bears a week from next Sunday - THE big one. So they may be playing it close to the vest again at Minneapolis.
PACKERS, STEELERS WORK OUT FOR GAME
SEPT 16 (Minneapolis) - Green Bay and Pittsburgh slated brief workouts today in preparation for their NFL exhibition game here Wednesday night. The Packers were slight favorites. The game, sponsored by the Catholic Welfare Association, was expected to draw more than 19,000 persons. Pittsburgh's physical condition made the Packers favorites. Ed "Big Mo" Modzelwski, the freshman All-American from Maryland, will be out a week with a groin injury. Halfback Harold Payne is out of the year with a concussion, and Lynn Chadnois will see only limited action against the Packers.
STEELERS CAN'T SHAKE INJURY JINX
SEPT 16 (Olean, NY) - The Steelers, still unable to shake off the injury jinx that has hounded them since the start of the pre-season games, left today for Minneapolis where they meet the Green Bay Packers tomorrow night. Four Steelers stayed behind as the Pittsburgh eleven flew out of Buffalo for the game site. Fullback Ed (Mighty Mo) Modzelewski, tackle Ernie Stautner, guard Lynn Lynch and end Jack Butler were unable to make the trip. In the Packers, the Steelers will meet a team that has finally hit a winning stride. After four straight defeats, the Packers beat the Washington Redskins, 13-7, at Kansas City Sunday. In an earlier meeting at Latrobe, Pa., Pittsburgh beat the Packers, 7-6. It was the only victory for the Steelers, who have a scoreless tie and three defeats to show for their pre-season contests. Following tomorrow night's game, the Steelers will fly to Shreveport, La., where they meet the Chicago Bears in the finale of the seven-game pre-season schedule Saturday night. Once again, Steeler Coach Joe Bach will try to field a winning combination of rookies to spell off an all-veteran backfield composed of quarterback Jim Finks, halfbacks Ray Mathews and Lynn Chadnois and fullback Fran Rogel. Bach's green, first-year unit will be composed of Gary Kekorian of Stanford at quarterback; Tom Calvin of Alabama and Vic Pollock of Army at the halves and Joe Spinks of Alcorn A&M at full. For Spinks, the coming two games will tell whether he will make the club. The 240-pound line bucker, impressive in his early drills, has been a disappointment in pre-season games. However, the coaches are reluctant to release the big boy, feeling that he will come around once he gets the hang of the pro game. Meanwhile, the Steeler squad was down to 41 players following the release of tackle Walter Szot, end Pat Smithwick and guard Dick Mundinger.
STEELERS AND PACKERS CLASH AT MINNEAPOLIS
SEPT 16 (Minneapolis) - A couple of also-rans in the Grapefruit League of pro football will clash here tomorrow night in Parade Stadium when the Pittsburgh Steelers (1-3-1) and the Green Bay Packers (1-4) put on an exhibition fray. Sponsored by Catholic Welfare Association for the benefit of homeless youngsters, the game is expected to draw 20,000 fans. The kickoff is scheduled at 10:15, Pittsburgh time. Only Steeler success since Coach Joe Bach installed the T formation was a narrow, 7-6 affair over these same Packers in Latrobe. Coach Gene Ronzani's club finally broke into the victory column last weekend when they edged the Washington Redskins, 13-7, in Kansas City. The two Steeler backs responsible for the touchdown against the Packers will not get another chance tomorrow. Fullback Ed Modzelewski ran 12 yards, then lateraled to right halfback Lynn Chadnois and the ex-Michigan State star sprinted 61 more on a brilliant 73 yard maneuver in Latrobe. Mighty Mo didn't make the trip due to injuries suffered Sunday September 7 against the San Francisco 49ers while Chadnois, another casualty of that stern struggle, will see little or no action. With Mozelewski sidelined  Coach Back will call on Jerry Shipkey and Jack Spinks to do the linebucking. Shipkey was used exclusively on defense as a linebacker last season but is eager to carry the ball. Gary Kekorian, the rookie quarterback from Stanford, is scheduled to start his second straight game. The Syrian athlete did well against the Forty-Niners despite poor protection on his pass plays. Ray Mathews is due to open at left halfback while Tom Calvin, recruit from the University of Alabama, who played fullback in the early games, makes his debut at offensive right halfback. Vito (Babe) Parilli, Rochester, Pa., product, who played briefly for the Packers in the first Steeler game, is expected to do most of the Packers passing. The Wisconsin team will be minus fullback Jack Cloud and halfback Ray Pelfrey, who are on the hospital list. Tomorrow's tussle concludes the Green Bay exhibition schedule. The Steelers wind up their pre-season card against the Chicago Bears in Shreveport, La. on Saturday night.
EXHIBITION - Green Bay Packers (1-4) 13, Washington Redskins 7
Sunday September 14th 1952 (at Kansas City)
Packers' best back in the Steeler game, were left in camp recovering from injuries. Quarterback Gary Kekorian, who never had a chance in his pro debut against the 49ers, as the Steeler line refused to block, will get the starting role again tonight. However, Jim Finks will be around to spell the cagey Stanford signal caller for the first time in a month. And Tom Calvin, the promising rookie who has shown up so well in training camp but rarely gets a chance in the games, is a likely starter at right halfback. The quartet - Kekorian, Spinks, Calvin and Ray Mathews - gives the Steelers a backfield with three rookies in starting roles. Only Mathews has had pro experience and his service was limited last year.
GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(KANSAS CITY) – The Green Bay Packers didn’t look exactly like world champions in their 13-7 victory over Washington’s Redskins in a non-conference football game here Sunday, but Coach Gene Ronzani’s team showed enough to indicate they’ll be tough come the season opener Sept. 28. Gaining their first success in five exhibitions, the Packers won because of their alertness and ability to take advantage of the Washington misfortunes. And whenever they were in trouble, the Packers managed to protect their goal except for one sustained Washington touchdown drive that put the Redskins back in the game in the third quarter. Green Bay sandwiched between two spectacular field goals. Fred Cone, former Clemson star, opened the scoring with a side angle placekick from the 17-yard line in the first quarter. Vito Parilli, showing the brilliance that made him an All-America at Kentucky, rifled a 30-yard scoring pass to end Ab Wimberly for a touchdown in the second quarter and Cone converted to give the Packers a 10-0 halftime lead. In the third quarter, after Washington had scored a touchdown and conversion to climb within three points of a tie, the Packers’ Bill Reichardt, ex-Iowa star, split the crossbars with a placekick from the 42-yard line. That stunned the Redskins as well as the 6,500 fans and the scoring was over. The Packers made all three of their scoring breaks. Bobby Dillon, a standout defensive back of the day, intercepted a pass by Harry Gilmer of Washington on the Redskin 39 yard line and hustled to the 10, where he was forced out of bounds. Four plays later, Cone made his field goal. Green Bay had Washington backed deep in its own territory in the second when a punt by little Eddie LeBaron went only 16 yards and out of bounds on the Redskin 30. Rushing Packers had forced LeBaron to kick hurriedly. Parilli threw to Wimberly on the next play, former Louisiana State star taking the ball on the six and struggling over with a Redskin on his back. Reichardt’s field goal was set up by a LeBaron fumble. John 
up the exhibition section of their schedule here tonight in their second meeting of the year with Pittsburgh. The two NFL teams played earlier at Latrobe, PA, with the Steelers winning, 7-6. The Packers won their first victory of the year Sunday at Kansas City, nipping Curly Lambeau's Washington Redskins, 13-7, in a dull contest. Tonight's game will be the final tests for rookies still being carried on both clubs' rosters. The league limit of 33 players must be reached by the time of the regular season a week from Sunday. Coach Gene Ronzani, at last count, was about a dozen players over the limit. Certain to be nipped are a couple of fullbacks from the likes of veterans Jack Cloud and Fred Cone and rookies Jack Floyd and Bill Reichardt. Cone is a virtual cinch to stay, with the three others battling for the other job. Green Bay played straight T-formation football against Washington. They threw only 10 passes during the game as Ronzani tested his apparently feeble running game. The chances appeared good that similar action would be followed tonight. The Packers will return home Thursday to put the final touches on their play for the opener at City Stadium against the Chicago Bears September 28.
STEELERS BATTLE GREEN BAY TONIGHT
SEPT 17 (Minneapolis) - The Steelers will learn tonight whether they have improved in the two and a half weeks that have elapsed since they beat Green Bay, 7-6, at Latrobe, Pa. The same two teams meet here again tonight. The game is sponsored by the Minneapolis Catholic Welfare Assn. Both the Steelers and the Packers will be after their second victory of the pre-season campaign. The Steelers' lone victory came in the earlier meeting with the Packers while Green Bay finally hit the win column with a 13-7 triumph over the Washington Redskins Sunday. A blocked extra point attempt coupled with a 75-yard run involving Ed (Mighty Mo) Modzelewski and Lynn Chadnois gave the Steelers their one-point win over the Packers at Latrobe. Mo blasted over tackle from his 26, reached midfield and lateraled Chadnois who went the rest of the way. But Mighty Mo, the running star of that game, won't see action tonight. The promising fullback from Maryland was left at Olean, N.Y., when the squad departed yesterday. Mo and three other injured Steelers did not make the trip. Jack Spinks will start in Mo's place. The other absentees are tackle Ernie Stautner, guard Lynn Lynch and end Jack Butler. Coach Joe Bach's Steelers still have another game before returning to Olean to wind up their pre-season training. They play the Chicago Bears at Shreveport, La., Saturday, in another re-match that will serve as a basis for comparing the present Steelers with the team of a month ago. The Packers, too, will be playing at a disadvantage. Fullback Jack Cloud and halfback Ray Pelfrey, the
PACKERS NEED CONVINCING WIN OVER PITT TONIGHT!
SEPT 17 (Green Bay) - Can the Packers enter the Bear game "on the run"? At least, mentally. The Packers haven't done anything teamwise thus far this non-conference season to place them in the same class with the powerful Chicago Halasmen who launch NFL action against the Packers in Green Bay a week from Sunday. But the Packers can soup up their own morale by beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in their final 1952 non-leaguer in Parade grounds here tonight. After four consecutive losses, the Packers started on the run by edging the Washington Redskins, 13-7, in Kansas City last Sunday afternoon - a slight shot in the arm. A convincing win over the Steelers would sharpen the Packer claws - mentally as well as physically. The task won't be easy for a couple of reasons: (1) The Pittsburghs are a tough ball clubs; and (2) the Packers aren't in the habit of playing two games in four days. A year ago, the Packers lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, 14-10, on a Sunday in Milwaukee and, on the following Wednesday night here, dropped a 20-0 decision to San Francisco. Tonight's game winds up the Packers' pre-season program, while the Steelers must travel to Shreveport, La., to meet the Bears on Saturday night. The Packers enter this evening's charity program with a 1-4 mark against the Steelers' 1-3-1. Pittsburgh's only win was a 7-6 verdict over the Packers in Latrobe, Pa., Aug. 29. In case you're looking ahead to Sept. 28, the Bears' record thus far is 3-1, including a 14-9 win over the Steelers. The Packers' offense will be in the hands of a rookie, quarterback Babe Parilli, who carried on so well when Tobin Rote sprained his thumb in the first quarter of the Redskin game. Rote likely will be held our entirely to make sure that he is ready for the Bear opener. The game will be the "last chance" for at least nine Packers. The roster contains 42 names - nine over the league limit of 33, which must be reached by midnight Sept. 27. Ronzani reduced the roster to 42 players by placing offensive halfbacks Bob North and Roger Stephens on waivers Tuesday. The remaining offensive halfbacks are Tony Canadeo, Billy Grimes, Floyd Reid, Dom Moselle and the injured Ray Pelfrey. Moselle played considerable defense against the Redskins. Pelfrey may miss tonight's game along with veteran fullback Jack Cloud, who has developed back trouble. The Packer coaching staff will keep a close eye on the line, which is overstocked. At center, for instance, rookies Dan Makowski and George Schmidt are fighting for a chance to share the offensive centering with veteran Jay Rhodemyre. The tackles may present a problem since two veterans haven't seen mich action because of injuries - Chubby Grigg and Joe Spencer. Rookies fighting for regular "T" employment are Steve Dowden, Tom Johnson, Elmer Costa and Dave Hanner. Other veterans are Ed Ecker and Howie Ruetz. Speaking about tackles, Ronzani hoped to definite word as to the future playing possibilities of Dick Wildung, veteran tackle-captain, who has been forced to stay home for lack of someone to operate his business in Redwood Falls, some 100 miles west of here. Wildung had planned to see the Packers play tonight. Coach Joe Bach of the Steelers will be without the services of two of his big guns - fullback Mighty Moe Modzelewski and halfback Lynn Chandnois, who were among 11 players who suffered injuries in the recent "rough" game against the San Francisco Forty Niners. Chuck Ortmann, former Michigan single winger, is expected to start at quarterback in the Steelers' new T-formation attack. A crowd of nearly 20,000 is expected to witness the game, sponsored by the Catholic Welfare association. Kickoff is at 8:15. The Packers, headquartering at the Nicolet hotel, will arrive back in Green Bay on the Milwaukee Road at 4:50 Thursday evening, leaving here at 7:30 Thursday morning.
PACKERS TO WIND UP EXHIBITION SEASON
SEPT 17 (Minneapolis) - The Green Bay Packers wind
