Bluejays M Year Shows 706,276 Fans Saw Jays Play At Joannes Park By ART DALEY The Blueiavs made some money last lummcr $9,643.84, to be exact. And in view of professional football losses, stockholders of the Community Baseball association could hardly be blamed for feeling a wee bit on the chesty side at their annual meeting at the Beaumont hotel last night. The balance sheet for 1949 showed an income of $76,014.01 and expenses of $66,370.17, leaving the profit of $9,643.84. Len J. Reis. Bluejay president sounded the success keynote of the meeting with this: "We can truthfully say that the past season was our most successful since the leasue started operation In 1940. True, we won pennant .in 1941 and 1946 and finished second In 1942 a we did the past season, but success in operating a ball club la measured by box office receipts." The box office receipts boomed In 1949. with close to S50.000 of ne Income being accounted lor through the sale of tickets at the window and in the , pre-season campaign. The official attendance for the eason was announced as 106,276 an almost unbelievable increase f 41,406 over 1948 when 64,870 entered Joannes park for Bluejay games. The best previous high was 74,637 In 1948 a pennant year. The breakdown on the attendance showed 41,472 general ad mission: 23,974 box and reserve; 10,733 youth; 13,145 children; 10,104 book tickets; 3,704, ladies and blue shirt tickets; 950 bowl trs tickets; 194 passes. At home and on the road, the Bluejays played before 200,324 fans an increase of 64,096 over 1948. The Bluejays best "draw" at home and away was Oshkosh. A total of 26,122 watched the Bluejays battle the Giants in Green Bay and 27,869 saw the same clubs clash at Oshkosh. Bluejays officials figured that the attendance here might have reached 110,000 "if there hadn't been so much g threatening weather." They M pointed out that on several occasions light rain generally falling about an hour before game time kept several thousands fans away. In his annual president's report, Reis paid tribute to the 1949 team and Manager Phil eghi. "We probably have had better ball clubs in other years but none had the scrap and fire that the 1949 aggregation had. The result was increased fan interest. The players not only made friends on the field but off it as well, this being a fine tribute to their manager who stressed the value of both many times during the season. "Not too much effort was ex tended on special nights through which to draw fans into the park but the West Side Businessmen, the North Side Businessmen and the Red Owl stores held special gift nights. Jug Girard and Max Patkin nights and the Oshkosh games, in general, accounted for capacity crowds." Regarding 1950, Keis said "our goal should be an even greater season In every respect and an attendance of 125,000 or more Is not Impossible." The prexy said that the Quarterback club, spon sored by the Green Bay Packer Alumni association, has discussed extending its program to take in baseball as well. He announced that a big baseball night will be held sometime In January to "start the ball rolling for 1950." At present the club Is promoting the sale of Christmas gift certificates entitling the recipient to tickets for next summer's games. Concerning the team for 1950, Reis said that "we have every reason to believe that the successful tie-up will continue and be most profitable. A recent letter from Hank Green berg, the new Cleveland vice president, carries that assurance." Reis and Seghi will confer with Greenberg in Cleve land next week. Green Bay is one of three Class D clubs retained by the Cleveland organization which recently cut its farm program. neis usiea iv piayers still on the Bluejay active list Galen Newton, Stan Gorecki, Rodney Graber, Tom Taube, Bob Samaras, Ccrc Donahue, Clarence roticu-boom, Howie Rosenfelder, Dick Jeric and Dick Steffenson.

Lambeau will attend the Na tional league championship game between the Rams and Philadelphia Eagles in Los Angeles next Sunday and then scout the East West game in San Francisco Sat urday, Dec. 31 and the Rose bowl game between Ohio State and California Jan. 2. The Packer mentor said that "every effort now is aimed at lining up players for the January draft." Most of the major bowl fames will be scouted by Packer representatives for the purpose of getting more information on players already listed in Packer files. The Packers will get second or third choice in the new dra't which was called after the National league and All-America conference merged last Friday. Previously-drafted players have been "turned loose" and will be redrafted. Thus, the Packers lose rights to their three earlier . selections End Art Weiner of South Carolina, Center Clayton Tonne-maker of Minnesota, and Back Dick McKissack of Southern Methodist. Wanted a New Car Grateful that the cash war between the two Jeagues is over. Lambeau said that "we Won't have to worry about being asked to pay huge bonuses to sign players," He recalled that "in the last three seasons most athletes would ask for a bonus to sign. One athlete wanted a new car from us. He finally got it from a club in the other league ands lasted three weeks." Chief needs for 1950, Lambeau said, will be two or three pass receiving ends, a defensive center or line-backer, a passing quarter-1 back, a couple of hard-running ost Successful' $9,643 backs, and several reserves for the line which, he added, "played well during the 1949 season." Looking back over 1949, Lam-beau said he was impressed with the way the team kept fighting "It didn't fall apart as in 1943 Many of the players from last fall should give us a good nucleus for 1950." Packer business for 1950 gained steam Wednesday with announce ment that the Bays will play four league games at City stadium next falL Also announced was a season ticket campaign starting immediately, with an installment plan attached. Fans may purchase seat reservations for t h e four games with a minimum of $5 down. Christmas gift certificates are also available at the Packer ticket office, 349 S. Washington street. One of the four games will be traditional battle with the Bears. One or two of the three new faces Cleveland, San Francisco or Baltimore will probably play at the stadium. Fund for '52 Olympics In Finland Under Fire HELSINKI. Finland (U.R) A $170,000 fund designed to promote the 1952 Olympic games was under fire today by Finland's gov erning political party. Social .democratic party secre- tary General Vaeinoe Leskinen asked that the amount be cut by 30 per cent because of a rift between the nation's two athletic unions the Social Democratic Workers Athletic union and the right-wing Finnish Athletic union. The Communists indicated they would back the Social Democratic party in its stand. Sports Cocktails: The 'All' Selections 2 Quarterbacks, 2 Halfbacks On AP's All-Pro First Squad Backfield Has No Fullback; Mutryn (694) Yards Beats Out Canadeo (1,056 Yards) By ART DALEY Press-Gazette Sports Editor It is our unhappy duty today all-pro football team . . . The AP Mr. Tony Canadeo ... off its first and last of the news services to International News Service selected two clubs (offensive and de fensive) from among the National Football league and the All America conference, placing Canadeo with Steve Van Buren at the halfbacks on the offensive club The United Press made f2NwV separate selections for the two iT&r- leagues and placed Canadeo f " with Van Buren on the Nation- 1 if al league squad . . . The AP M went to the gigantic task of se- lecting an all-pro team from the two leagues .together ... In order to keep everybody happy (in the backfield, at least) the AP selected two from the AAC and two from the NFL, relegat- ing Canadeo to in the process . . . That back-field, get this, is composed of two quarterbacks and two half Van Rnrtn backs Otto Graham of the Cleveland Browns and Bob Waterfield of the LA Rams at QB and Chet Van Buren at HB ... We might that Van Buren probably could run but, gracious sakes, how can you ever explain the double-quarterback to your grandsons ... It is as sumed that Waterfield was placed because of his kicking ability . . . Steve Owen of the NY Giants cails Waterfield the greatest of the present-day quarterbacks because of thai extra ability plus his wizardry as a passer and deceptionist Waterfield s all-around abil ity certainly rates him No. 1 as a QB . . . If the AP is looking for kicker and, incidentally, the necessary fullback (never saw a backfield without one) why not select Pat Harder, the Cardinals' great plunger and extra point and field goal specialist ... As for Mutryn over Canadeo? . . Let's see now, Mr. Mutryn gained 694 yards for the Bills against Cana-deo's 1,056 for the Packers . And it goes without saying that Canadeo's opposition was much better balanced, and stronger, if you please, than Mutryn s . . . Canadeo gained more than one- third of his .yardage against two of the toughest teams in pro foot ball the Bears and Rams . . .

To start the ball rolling, the Brown County Conservation club presented the board with a check for $50 for feed. The club com mittee attending the meeting con sisted of Ed Wochenske, who act ed as spokesman, W. J. Femal, Earl Clausen and R. J. Lampereur. As a result of the discussion which followed, it was agreed that greens and other food items will be picked up from several of the city's larger food markets, and from produce houses. Waste seed will be secured from elevators. Bakeries will contribute crumbs left from bread slicing, with stale rolls and other items. But there still is need for all the feed that can be secured, it was brought out, and the public was invited to contribute, either in money or leea. xnis wouia have the double purpose of meet to present the Associated Press left off Green Bay's favorite team . . . The AP is the third announce its selections . . . The the second team WaterfleM Mutryn of the Buffalo Bills and grant the AP a point by admitting from fullback on any pro club, eludes Mac Speedie of Cleveland and Pete Pihos of Philadelphia at the ends: Arnie Weinmeister of the NY Yankees and Dick Huffman of the Rams at the tackles; Dick Barwegan of Baltimore and Garrard Ramsey of the Cardinals at guards; and Fred Naumetz of the Rams at center . . . With Canadeo in the second team back field are Frankie Albert of San Francisco, Elmer Angsman of the Cardinals and Joe Perry of San Francisco . . . The second team line: Ends Alyn Beals of San Francisco and Tom Fears of LA; Tackles George Connor of the Bears and Bob Reinhard of the Dons; Guards Ray Bray of the Bears and Visco Grgich of San Francisco; and Center Lou Saban of Cleveland ... Of the 30-odd players given honorable mention, a noticeable leave-out was Dick Wildung, the Packers' standout tackle ... Ed Neal, converted from a guard to center this season, was the only Packer getting honorable mention. 1949 Ail-Americans Doubtful About Playing Pro Football ' All Fear Big Dip in Salaries; ND's Martin Only One Sure He'll Play By WILL GRIMSLEY NEW YORK (IP) Only one member of th 1949 college All America Jim Martin, the big Notre Dame tackle is dead set on carrying on In professional football. Four of the honored squad insist they definitely won't play for money while the other six are doubtful, their yitmmt enui uni in chilled by the recent merger of the two ma jor pro cir- cuits. "It looks like fVj the quick and easy money is gone," wailed Clayton Ton- nemaker, the 245 - pound center from Minnesota. "I'll Tonnemaker probably try to capitalize on my physical educa tion decree. But in case the pros would line to dish out some of that heavy sugar, the Minneapolis boy added; "I'm listening." (TonnemaKer was drafted by the Green Bay Facie ers and San Francisco before the lea sues merged.) Sharinc the "undecidea" rence with Tonnemaker are Leon Hart, the Notre Dame end who was voted the season's outstanding in dividual performer; his teammate, Fullback Emil Sitko; Halfback Doak Walker of Southern Methodist; and those two great guards. Rod Franz of California and John Schweder of Pennsyl vania. "I definitely will not play pro football," said triple threat Charlie ing the need, and of letting people know what the sanctuary has to offer. Cash contributions may be left in the box at the sanctuary, and entitle the contributor to a bag of corn which he may feed to the birds himself. If he wishes to bring his own corn, that's okay, toe. Feeding Birds Essential Bread and greens will be wel comed in unlimited quantities. but they should be turned over to the caretaker for grinding, and feeding in proper amounts and at proper times, to prevent spoilage and unsightly accumulations. When the feeding program started only a few seasons ago, the number of ducks wintering at the sanctuary was limited to a few dozen cripples. Last year it was estimated at 500, and today's figure, the board and committee agreed, is "at least 1,500." Feeding the birds is essenual; if they fail to get food where they are accustomed to receive it, they mill around and starve. The un precedented size of this year's flock caught the park department with its bins down, and an appeal had to be made for help. Every duck that spends the winter here will nest either In the sanctuary or within a mile of it. according to the committee members, making for greatly improved hunting next falL Presents Unmatched Sight But. aside from the hunter's angle, the board points out that the sanctuary presents an unmatched sight for the casual visitor. In addition to ducks, there geese, swans and pheasants spending the winter there perhaps the only wild swans on ex hibition. Nearly every species of Wis consin tree is represented. And in spring, according to Dick Meis-ter, park board president, there must be 50 varieties of pussy-willows alone. "I never had any idea there were so many kinds of pussy willows," he declared. The city has an Investment of half a million dollars in the sanctuary, Meister pointed out; visi tors have come miles to see it. but the interest of 'Green Bay resi dents seems only sketchy. He expressed hope that inviting the public to join in the feeding might increase the number of sanctuary visitors. Fight Results By the Associated Press TOPEKA.

QB Club in Final Meeting Ivy Williamson, who rates as the coach of the year in many books although he finished sixth in the official balloting for this honor, will be the speaker at tonight's 12th and final meeting of the Quarterback club in the Vocational school. The meeting will start at 7:30. Williamson, who lifted the University of Wisconsin from the football doldrums this fall, will show a film of one of the Badgers' games. It is not known which film it will be. . ' Another meeting feature will be a movie showing highlights of Packer games with National league rivals from the time the Bays' gridiron activities were first recorded on film until the present Charley Brock, assistant coach of the Packers, also will be present for the question and answer session. -A r it Justice, the two-time All-America halfback from North Carolina.. Stringing along with him in giv ing the pros a frigid shoulder are Arnold Galiffa, the talented T-quarterback of Army; Wade Walker, Oklahoma tackle, and Jim Williams, the Rice end. Galiffa has three years of Army duty waiting for hi... after he gets out of West Point and he can't start thinking about professional football. He plans to make the Army his career. Williams, who weighs only 185, said, "I'm not big enough for the pros. I m Just an all-around end and they want specialists these days." Wade Walker plans to coach., Martin said it's his Intention to have a fling at the pros, regardless of what the merger means. "I want to play a couple of years," he added. His Notre Dame teammates, Hart and Sitko, want to wait and see, however. Hart, drafted originally by the Detroit Lions and Baltimore Colts, declared he would play pro football if he got the right offer, say, "something like $25,000 as a starter." Surplus of. Talent No such plump enticements are expected from the new 13-team setup. There's a surplus of exper ienced talent and competitive bid ding is out. All the college eligibles will be tossed into a pot for a brand new draft next month Hart may land with a team which isn't ready to offer a fabulous salary or a good engineering job on the side. The bullish Sitko, who would make the pros a good line smack er, said he wants to see what club gets his draft rights before making up his mind. Doak Walker, the three-time All-America triple threat star from the southwest, declared, "I might like to try it but I haven't decided yet." Schweder and Franz are guards with similar inclinations. "If they make it worth while 111 take a crack at pro ball," said Schweder, the 200-pounder from Bethlehem, Pa. "Otherwise, 111 enter busi ness." There was a ring of doubt in Franz' statement "I'm undecided but I rather doubt 111 play," the San Franciscan said. He's plan ning post graduate work aimed at a physical education post Dr. Kelly Quits Packer Board Resigns After 27 Years Of Service; President in First Championship Year Dr. W. W, Kelly, former presi dent of Green Bay Packers, Inc., today, resigned as a member of the board of directors of the Packer corporation. His decision was made known in a letter to Emu K. Fischer, president of the Packers. Dr. Kelly has been affiliated with the Packers for 27 years, starting in 1922 when he, together with L. H. Joannes and A. B. Turnbull, organized the present corporation to take over the club. Dr. Kelly served as president in 1929 the Packers' first championship season. He served as club physician until 1944 the club's last title season, when he resigned, Text Of Letter Dr. Kelly's letter of resignation to Fischer follows: "I beg to submit herewith my resignation as a director of the Green Bay Packers, Inc., which will be considered effective as of today's date. As everyone is aware, I was strenuously opposed to the renew' al of E. L. Lambeau's contract as manager and coach of the Green Bay Packers. My motive for op posing this renewal of contract was not from any personal feeling toward Mr. Lambeau, in spite of propaganda to the contrary; but was based upon my belief that a complete reorganization of the club was Indicated at this time. I was supported in my position by only two other directors, and the vote of the board was practically unanimous in rejecting my ideas This was their privilege, and I am sure they were activated en tirely by the highest motives. In making their decision, however, they have assumed full responsi bility and are pledged to see this matter to a successful conclusion for the next two years. In carrying out their self-imposed duty I think it is only fair that complete harmony In their ranks should prevail and that they should not in any way be hampered by my divergent ideas and views. Under the circumstances I feel I should resign. I wish them every success. . "It is with reffrM that I pmv' sever all connection with this great ' community enterprise which 1 sponsored from its inception and which I have served to the best of my ability and at great personal sacrifice in various capacities for a period of 27 years. These capacities included that of a member of the board of directors, member of the executive committee, team physician, president, and as a member of the executive committee of the National Football league. I consider it a privilege to have been permitted to render this ser vice. Long live the Green Bay Packers!" Fischer Regrets Resignation President Fischer commented as follows on the resignation: I have received Dr. Kelly s resignation with great regret. Dr. Kelly has been with the Packers since their inception as a commun ity football team, and has devoted many years of effort and personal sacrifice to the building of this or ganization. His letter will be sub mitted to the board of directors at their next meeting." j Two of Michigan State's top left halfbacks, Horace Smith and Jesse Thomas, are hurdlers on the. track team. Press-Gazette Green Bay, Wis., Thursday Evening, Dec. 15, 1949 Devils Point-Hungry; Cadets Host Saturday East Host to North; West To Visit Sheboygan By LEE REM MEL The shot, the physical maneu ver which brings two points sometimes when performed on the basketball court, is the thing at East High this week. Coach Jake Shaffer, whose Red Devils meet Sheboygan North and Central Catholic on successive nights this week end, are point' hungry and they hope to score more than a few when they en counter the Golden Raiders at Washington Junior High school Friday ' night and the Cadets at Central's auditorium Saturday night "We ve been working on our offensive set-ups," Shaffer re vealed, "to see ir we can't get a few more shots in there than we have. We want more points and the only way to get 'em is to shoot. You never score any points pass ing the ball around." Having delivered himself of this pronouncement, ' genial Jake was quick to add, "Don't get me wrong. I ve always believed that a good ball club moves the ball around to get an opening or set up a shot, but we've been passing too much and not shooting enough." The Devils, he let it be known, also have been "working on re bounds. We want to see if we can't do something about these big guys who keep batting the ball up there until it finally goes In. This North outfit, I hear, is a tall team so well have a job on our hands on rebounds. Mast Shake Off Tension Across the river, Coach 'at Ma- lone had another theory about his West High Wildcats, who have lost two conference starts, al though only after giving their foes a busy evening. "The boys have been trying hard all along," the handsome Irishman declared, and I think they've been trying too hard. When they've thrown the ball away, I think it's been mainly because of nervousness. Indicating that he's confident his proteges will do all right if they can shake off the tension Pat asserted, "It's the little things that have been beating us," and added a oouquet for his disciples, Lack of fight certainly isn't los ing for them. These kids always fight all the way." "If we can get over giving the other ball clubs easy buckets, we can give any of 'em a good game,' he emphasized. "We're doing just as well as the rest of them otherwise and that includes shooting." Although he had made no changes in startinr combination as the Purple prepare for Friday nights invasion of Sheboygan Central, Pat revealed that he has been using Rondou "at the pivot." ihis move gives him more insurance if and when Hurdis McCrary the starting center, has a bad night or gets off to a slow start. Wayne Wetts, a promising junior, also works at the center rost and has demonstrated considerable ability defensively. Only Six Pro Grid Teams Made Profit, UP Survey Shows CHICAGO (U.R) Six pro football teams, five in the old National league, made a profit in 1949, a United Press checkup showed today.

Coach Phil Seghi Is taking no chances on Saturday night's game, sending his varsity squad through intensive daily drills on both of fense ana defense to get ready for the Red Devils. The possibility of overconfidenee, always present when a team is meeting an opponent already once beaten, has been largely eliminated, he thinks. You can't win games on news paper clippings," is the slogan at Cadet practice sessions. For the first time since after the season's opener, th Cadets again have a point score exceeding their opponents. Figuring In the 40-28 win over St Mary's Springs at Fond du Lac Friday, Central has now scored 181 points to 174 for the opposition In fiv games. Three of the games, over Springs and the two Green Bay opponents, have resulted In vic tory; St. Catherine s of Racine and St Bonaventure of Sturtevant have beaten Seghi's boys. Offense Remains Balanced The 'offense remains well-balanced with a spread of only eight points in the totals of the five usual starters. Center Jerry O'Brien, the only junior of the five, has scored 38; Bob Chameskl and Larry Smits, at forward, have racked up 35 apiece, and the two guards, Bob Bender and John Kalinosky, have counted 30 each. No change in starting assignments is contemplated for Saturday night. Starters and reserves alike were paced through a long drill late Wednesday with an eye t polishing offensive maneuvers and defensive assignments, those two phases of the practice sandwiching an intensive drill on ball-handling, shooting and rebound work. The opener against East was hard-fought affair with the Cadets' five-point margin coming on free throws. Each team scored nine times from the field. Seghi has impressed on his charges that the Red Devils will be an Improved ball club come Saturday night, shown by the fact that they have played some tough games in the fast Fox River Valley competition. In the first meeting, Charneski, Smits and O'Brien scored 25 of th 38 points, Charneski getting th edge with nine. The East forwards seem likely to come In for a good bit of attention since Dave Weihaupt and Gordy Metoxen counted eight apiece against the Cadets. After the Red Devil game, Central will travel to Kimberly next Tuesday to close pre-hollday play. Bears and Chicago Cardinals of the old NFL, and the San Francisco Forty-Niners of the now defunct All America conference. The other 11 clubs all lost money, some in high figures ranging up to a reported $350-$400,000 for the Los Angeles Dons, $340,000 for the New York Yankees, and $300,-000 for the New York Bulldogs and Chicago Hornets.
