Blue Shirt Game With Janesville Carded Tonight By DON IIICKOK An electrifying triple play prov ed the turning point in Tuesday night's ball game as the Green Bay Bluejays climbed into a first- place tie with Oshkosh by beating Janesville, 8-4, while Oshkosh was losing to Wisconsin Rapids, Until the triple killing a baseball rarity Janesville was lead ing 4-3 and Righthander Glen Runge looked anything but effec tive. The play broke the back of the Cubs offense, however, and was a mighty prop for Runge, who went on to win his 16th victory Al Gross contributed a perfect five hits in five trips to the trl umph. Green Bay thus reached the top of the Wisconsin State league standings for the first time since falling from grace the night of June 30 by losing at Sheboygan, 3-2. The Jays, in their comeback, have won nine of there last 10 starts. Triple plays usually result from a line drive that catches runners off bases, or from mental lapses on the part of base-runners. But this one was off a ground ball and it was cleanly made. The Cubs had a run in, Bob Hanny on third base and Bob Slusarek on first with Bob Dant at bat. Dant drove a sharp ground ball at Manager Phil Seghi, playing third. Seghl feinted toward third just enough to check Hanny, then whipped the ball to Stan Gorecki to force Slu- when he first became interested Mr. Turnbull is on vacation on a ranch high in the mountains of Oregon and so is not available for comment. However, the history of the Packers has been written in various forms by many popular writers. Many who have investigated the record agree that the rise of the Packers from a purely local team to an institution of national reputation began with Mr. Turnbull's interest. Strangely enough it was the fact that the Packers had reached the very depths of despair that attracted his interest. It was a driving rain storm midway in the 1922 season that brought the executives of the club into consultation in the office of the Press-Gazette. Gathered for this dreary conference were Coach Curly Lambeau, G. W. Calhoun, Joseph Ordens and Nathan Ahrams It is i-prkirted that thev were considering calling the game off, and it must be admitted that some felt that end of professional football in Green Bay was near at hand. 1,300 Fans In Stands Mr. Turnbull, general manager of the Press-Gazette, chanced to visit the office of the newspaper that Sunday morning and the troubled quartet eagerly called him into the huddle. He heard the story. The Duluth Eskimos were in Green Bay ready to play and must be paid their guarantee whether the game went on or not. He advised them to play the game, if they wanted to put professional football over in Green Bay, and thus established the policy of playing rain or shine which the Packers have followed ever since. There were only 1,300 hardy fans in the stands, but the Packers had won more than a ball came that day. They had won the attention and active interest of Mr. Turnbull and no one will deny that that has been one of their greatest assets during the past 27 years. George W. Calhoun, former iports editor of the Press-Gazette, who has been a sort of Boswell of the Packers since their beginning in 1919, has told the above story in a history of the club published in the Packer program of Sept. 29, 1946. After relating this Incident in the history of the club he continues: "But that day marked the turning point in the history of the Packers. Before the 1923 season opened the Packer Football corporation had been formed to give Lambeau and the Packers sound financial backing." "Turnbull was named president and associated with him in the football project were Dr. W. W. Kelly, L. H. Joannes and a number of other leading citizens. Turnbull continued as president hroueh the 1927 season. Ray Evrard was executive in 1928, Dr Kelly in 1929, and Joannes took over in 1930." (E. R. Fischer was named to succeed Joannes as president in 1947.) "The Packer coach now was able to turn his attention to the football field while others handled the finances. Gradually he added a key player here, another there, until the Packers were set to make their bid for the professional foot ball championship." Mr. Turnbull is an enthusiastic supporter of all athletic undertakings as witness his interest in the organization of the Oneida Golf and Riding club and the development of the Blucjay baseball team. However the Packers offered something of wide benefit to the city and he recognized the value of the nation-wide pub- 1 Hanny, after scampering back to Gross Gorecki third, had Started again for the plate and Gross, with his natural left-handed motion, whirled and threw to Andy Marinko, who tag ged Hanny slidinfg into the plate. The ball traveled three-quarters of the way around the diamond just as fans have seen it do hun dreds of times in infield practice. Search pf the available records shows that it was the first triple erasure by the Bluejays in at least five seasons of play, covering this year, 1943, 47, 46, and 42. League records are not complete in this department for 1841 and 42, how ever. There were 1,987 fans on hand to welcome the Jays home from a six-day road trip, pushing the season's total attendance to 86.204. The Bluejay business management, with its sights set on 100,000, has proclaimed tonight another "Blue Shirt night," with Janesville again appearing at Joannes park at K p. m.

Scout Eagle Contest To Entire Squad To See Game; Packer '77' Scrimmages By ART DALE1' Take it from the Chicago Cardinals, the Green Bay Packer' Philadelphia Eagle game at Cily stadium, Aug. 20, will be an iifi- portant contest. The Cardinals, for instance. will be represented by only the coaching staff during the Eagles' tiff with the College All Stars in Chicago Friday night. But the entire squadB0 some players and coaches will invade Green Bay for the Eagle-Packer en gagement. The Cardinals figure the Eacles will get a much stiffer test from the Packers than from the All Stars.

J. Bero announced today. Plans will be made for the Philadelphia-I Packer game here Aug. 20 7 and other games during fthe season. can bet your favorite putter that they'll take special note of the 1949 version of the Packers. The Cardinals are optimistic enough to believe that they'll be in the playoff for the third straight year against the Eagles next December, but they re also wise enough to know that they will have to whip the Packers during the league season. Meanwhile, the Packer office went ahead with plans to "push" the Eagle contest. The game will be boomed from one end of the state to the other via press and radio. The Packer ticket office, at 349 S. Washington street has the Eagle game tickets and fans may now purchase them across the counter. Seats are priced at $3.60, $2.40 and $1.20. THE PACKERS sharpened their claws for the Eagles' visit with their first scrimmage of the season at Rockwood lodge Monday morning. The intra-squad battling wasnt a complete success out neitner was it a distinct disappointment. Packer Coach Curly Lambeau looked over the scrimmage with this statement: "We saw enough fine individual performances which lead us to believe that we have the possibility of a good ball club. How ever, play execution in general lacked the necessary teamwork to make the maneuvers work against league opponents." Just about everybody but End Larry Craig and Guard Damon Tassos. both late arrivals, saw action on defense. The spirited show was held under a blazing sun and lasted from 9:45 until 11:20 with five minutes out for the "half." THE COACHING staff plus the 200 or 300 fans along the sidelines kept a special eye out for the new Packers. A number of them showed possibilities. Shortly after the "game" started, Bill Schroeder, the new halfback who did a stint at Wisconsin and with the El Toro Marine, intercepted a pass and raced for a touchdown. Later in the scrimmage, he got a whack in the face but was back asking for more after quick sideline treatment by Trainer Bud Jorgenson. Lew Ferry, fresh out of Villa- nova, looked steady and rough at left tackle under Dick Wildung. Bob Summerhays, the rookie fullback, raised a lot of hob in a U ' v ; . v- O i 1 t Nearly 20 rookies will be giving the veterans a run for regular employment with the Packers when they engage the Philadelphia Eagles at City stadium Saturday night, Aug. 20. One of the two new fullbacks, Frank (Bus) Williams of Utah State, is shown above lugging the ball. The other new FB is Bob Summerhays of Utah. Providing an obstacle for Williams is Dan Orlich, new end from Nevada. liclty the team brings to the city each year.

Those close to him feel that he will never lose interest in the Packers. i backer-up position and as a pass protector. In fact, Summerhays and Clyde Goodnight, veteran pass receiving end who looked good with Buddy Luhn on de fense, got into a minor scuffle. The terrific heat left a good share of the players with short tem pers. Glenn E. Lewis, the Texas Tech right halfback, displayed a lot of speed especially on a 30-yard scamper around left end. Lewis looks tiny though the program data will read 5-11, 190. Another Lewis, Guard Floyd of Southern Methodist, did well at a backer-up spot. THE TWO NEW ends, Charley Tatom from Texas and Billy Kel-ley from Texas Tech, made several nice catches though the decoying on aerial maneuvers was not up to par. Tatom, a tackle in college, worked at defensive end and looked good. The important quarterbacking was shared by Jack Jacobs, Jug Girard and Irv Comp. Jacobs got off some good pitches to Tatom, one for 30 yards, while Girard and Jacobs hit Kelley and Luhn consistently. Girard got his first big chance with the imaginary three minutes to go in the game and moved his team about 35 yards, alternating the runs from the left to right nicely and toss ing In a few passes. The Packer fullbacks went on a scoring spree, wait bchlinkman sizzling off the right side for about three scores. Summerhays hit pay dirt once on rfte same run sporting an injured shoulder, tossing a couple of nice blocks. Halfback Tony Canadeo and Fullbacks Ted Fritsch and Frank Williams made good gains. Guard Ed Neal toiled a spell at offensive center although the bulk of the work was handled by Veteran Bob Flowers. Playing the slot on defense, Neal gave new Centers John Tavener and Ralph Olsen a rough time, bumping them into the quarterback. Incidentally, Tiny Croft, a tackle, played in Neal's favorite defen sive position part of the game.

Janesville was hitting the oall in the early innings but failed to score in the first despite two hits. This was partially due to the work of Marinko, who threw a would-be stealer out at second base while holding a run ner on third for the second out. The Jays then went out in their half of the inning to grab a two-run lead. Ray Peters and Seghi walked with two out and Gross got the first of his five hits a double through the first-baseman that went on into rightfield, scor ing both runners. Marinko bene fitted from a mound error and Dick Ackermann walked to fill the bases, but Gorecki f lied to left to end the inning, f ifth Starts Gloomily The Cubs went ahead in the third after Runge hit the starting pitcher, John McGivern. Dick Lloyd and Hanny singled to fill the bases, Slusarek blooped one into centerfield to score McGiv em, and Lloyd scored on a wild pitch. Dant grounded to Acker mann who crossed Hanny up by throwing to Seghi, who caught nim Eliding back into third. Slusarek scored on what should have been a double play, with Dant forced at second but Ronnie George safe on Gross's error. Wendel Davis grounded to Gor ecki to retire the side. The game was deadlocked again in the fourth when Gorecki led off with a single through short Runge laid down a bunt to send him to second and Rod Graber drove him home with a hit to rightfield. Al Gebhard flied out and Peters fanned. The fifth inning started gloom ily enough with Lloyd's single and a triple to leftfield by Hanny which sent the lead run home. Slusarek walked and that set up the triple killing. In the home half of the fifth the Jays were able to tie the score again when Seghl slammed a double to center, went to third on a wild Ditch and home on the third of Gross's collection of hits, this one to right field. Marinko's bunt popped up, the pitcher and first baseman collided trying to field it but Davis, coming in from third, recovered the ball in -time to force Gross at second. Askermann then v.hiffed and Gorecki flied to right. Gorecki Ties Record The sixth inning maiked the last of the scoring with Green Bay ahead to stay. Runge singled to right and went all the way to thrid on an error in that garden. Graber rolled out but Gebhard drove a hit into left to score Runce. Peters followed with a single through the box. Seghi filed to right for the second out. Up came Gross again, this time singling to center to score Gebhard. He went to second on the throw to the plate, and Marinko was passed purposely. Ackermann proved that strategy wrong by coming through with a sharp single down the third-base line, driving in both Peters and Gross. The ninth man to bat, Gorecki, was retired by the leftfielder. The five hits by Gross went suc cessively through first base, over the bag, and into right, center and left fields. The other eight Blue- jay hits were divided, one apiece, among the other eight players In the game. Matt Matulis, appearing here for the first time as Janes ville manager, used three right-handed pitchers Don Elston, who came in during the fifth and was eventually the loser, and Art Klein, who started, the seventh after the lineup was shuffled to allow a pinch-hitter. Klein, in his two innings, allowed only one hit, and who do you suppose got it? Gross. Stan Gorecki accepted 13 chanc es with an error, getting three putouts and 10 assists. The 13 chances were two short of the rec ord of 15 held jointly by six sec ond basemen including Gorecki himself and Russell Sherman, who attended last night s game with Earl Gillespie in the WJPG-FM radio booth. The total of 10 assists also tied the league record held by four second-sackers.
