Werner: Cool head in a hotgame

By ROBIN WRIGHT
Mark Werner was born into the
straight man's. world.I
He's faultless-no hang-ups,
coniplexes or inhibitions.
Well-mannered, diligent, de-
voted to his family, and the ideal
victim for every mother's daugh-
ter, Werner is a pleasant relief
from the stereotype joc.
An unemotional marvel, Wer-
ner doesn't get psyched about a
game. Even after two years of
working for a chance to play, he
couldn't get worked up over his!
performance in Saturday's en-
couter with California.
"I don't let myself get nervous
on game day," Werner explains.
"I'm confident from practice that
I can play well, so I see no need
to worry.
"It's the same on the field. I'm
concentrating so hard on punting
that I forget about the crowd. Be-
sides, that way I know I'll do well.
"In high school I used to get
nervous tile day before the game.
After school Id go home and list-I
en to a collection of marching
band records and play the game in
my head. After I finished the
game, I wasn't afraid anymore."
His method works, despite its
improbability. In his first game

'Confidence has a lot

to (o
'experience last week, he kicked
for 396 yards in 10 appearances.
Werner relates a possible lack
of this confidence to the perform-
ance of the team. "Confidence has
a lot to do with team effort. I
don't think the coaches express
their faith in us enough. If they
were more positive in spirit and
attitude, maybe it'd rub off on the
team."
STRAIGHT MAN
Although so devoted to football
that he dug a 100x40 foot drive-
way this summer to get in shape,
Werner "doesn't mess around
enough to be a joc," describes his
roommate. "He was born into the
straight man's world."
0 loner, Werner grooves on
silence. He built a sailboat last
summer "in order to enjoy soli-
tude and complete peace. Sailing
gives; me time to think, with no
interference but the wind and
rushing water. There's nothing as
healthy as being alone for a
while.-
"I like to play golf by myself
too. It seems to be more of a chal-

with leam entort.f
lenge. I'm able to concentrate on
the mechanics of the game and
work to improve my game, where-
as with friends, I need to be so-
ciable and therefore can't work as
hard on skills.",
PERFECTIONIST
Perfectionism is the theme of
Werner's life. He already has his
life laid out.,
A double major in physical edu-
cation and businesssadministra
tion, Werner explains his plans,
"after graduation, I intend to go
into business with my grand-
father, designing and manufac-
turing pumps for industrial use.
"I want a degree in phys. ed.
because athletics have always
been a major part of my life. And
I'd like to remain active by coach-
ing on the side, even if it's just for
a sandlot team,
"Honesty is the best policy"
aptly describes Wesner's pattern'
of action. A prime example was
the decision to stick with a foot-
ball tender at Michigan, despite a
preference to play basketball at
Ohio State.
BASKETBALL PREFERENCE
Werner comments, "Until col-i
lege football has always been sec-
ondary to basketball. I never par-
ticularly cared about playing foot-
ball in college.
"I had my heart set on playing
basketball at Ohio State. But
when I didn't hear from Ohio, I
decided not to let the Michigan
football offer go by. Two days
after I signed with Michigan Ohio
State called to offer me a basket-
ball tender. I was really disap-
pointed.1
"It would have been possible to
get a release from Michigan, but
when I make a decision I always
stick to it. Besides, it wouldn't

Gridde Pickings
These next few seconds you spend ireading these immortal lines
may be among the cherished moments of. your life. Here is the
chance for you-maligned, downtrodden. anonymous cog in the
Multi-university machine-to carve your niche on the campus for
eons to come and to transform these dreary years into one glorious,
continual whirl.
By simply meandering over to 420 Maynard, filling out one (and
not more than one, lest Clark Kent in disguise strike you down with
vengeance) Gridde Pickings form, you can open the door to those
otherwise unattainable accolades you deserve. In addition, you have
an opportunity to saturate your lower digestive tract with a scrump-
tious Cottage Inn pizza.
As guest selector this week we've selected Lloyd Graff, who once
had the distinction of acting as Sports Editor of this diurnal journal,
Not only a writer, he also excelled in athletic endeavor, his greatest
thrill being the opportunity to quarterback the powerful Daily Libels
in 1965.
This word to the wise should be sufficient: the concensus below
should not be regarded as infallible. The combined Sports Editor's
percentage is a miniscule .575, not a significant improvement over
what could be done by flipping coins. This is your chance, monsieur or
madenmoiselle, to pit your superior foresight and sagacity against
that of the Chosen Ones and emerge victorious.

have been honest."}
The only virtue left for the
"Pretzel King of the Phi Psi
house" is an active interest in the
current racial crisis.
A strong civil rights advocate,
Werner sees the Johnson Admin-
istration as a failure in dealing.
with the black problem.7
"The program in the last four7
years has provided only handouts,
and the blacks resent it. I talked
to many black factory employes
last summer, and what they need
is a chance for more responsibility,I
instead of getting stuck on a masst
assembly line."
As for solutions, Werner sug-
gested that, "I knew exactly
what to do; I'd be running for
president."
Finally revealing a basic flaw,r
Werner plans to support Dick
Nixon as the hero of the American
people.

advanced technologies to the complex
social problems of today... transporta-
