din Bolsters Elliott's Outlook

" i

TWICE IN A LIFETIME:
Lions' 49-0 Loss to San Francisco
Second Such Loss by Wilson Team,

Hall and Joe O'Donnell and cen-
ter Todd Grant range from Hall's
210 lbs. to Houtman's 230.7
Now, although Elliott is reluc-
tant to;make any predictions, he
points out there is no loss of speed
from last year's edition, a fact
which showed up when the Wol-
verines threw UCLA's heralded
tailback Bobby Smith for 46 yards
in losses, giving him a net of only
18 for the day.
Elliott Not Satisfied
"We had some trouble with
Smith's fake pass and runs, and
there were a lot of other mis-
takes," contends Elliott, who is
worried that the mistakes might
be costly against a stronger team.
Smith was gang - rushed re-
peatedly, often losing big yardage
after evading two or three tacklers
only to be brought down by the
rest.
Almos Thompson, UCLA's hard-
nosed fullback, netted only seven.
yards in five carries up the middle
against Michigan's unyielding in-
terior line.
As a result of the hard-charging
line tactics,, guard John Minko
was able to tip Smith's arm in the
play which resulted in Xen Tu-
reaud's 92-yard touchdown run
on an interception.
Running Fine
Offensively, the line gave backs
Bill Tunnicliff, DRave Raimey and.
Ben McRae more running room
than they have been used tot Tun-
nicliff gained 58 yards up the mid-
dle, while Raimey and McRae had
a field day with 59 and 74 yards,
respectively, on the outside.
PRACTICE NOTES. .'.....
Elliott is making sure that there
is no letdown in team morale for
the Army game this Saturday. He
had the starters go through light
drills during which they could
"look at" what Army's lonesome
end attack would be like.
The reserve units went through
game-type scrimmages with some
body contact.
The leg injury which forced
Houtman to leave the UCLA game
as a precautionary measure is not
considered serious, but O'Donnell
and Lou Pavloff were not so lucky.
O'Donnell's bruised left arm is
in a cast and will prevent him
from playing against Army. Pav-
loff is still out until more X-rays
are taken of his knee injury.

head is looking down. His team
had just lost, 49-0.
When the powerful Chicago
Bears crushed the Detroit Lions,,
49-0, in 1941, George Wilson had
played an end position. On Sun-
day; as coach of the Detroit Lions;
he had watched his team fall to
the San Francisco 49ers, 49-0.
The 49ers played almost flaw-
less football. They scored twice
following Lion fumbles and twice,
following pass interceptions. But
the 49ers made their own breaks
-and the Lions couldn't contain
any of San Francisco's quarter-
backs-Kiliner, John Brodie, or
Bobby Waters.
NFL place kickers had another
field day. At Baltimore, Steve
Myhra kicked a 37-yd. field goal
with two minutes to go, putting
the Colts ahead of the Minneso-
ta Vikings, 31-30. Then rookie;
Steve Mercer booted a 29-yd. field.
goal with only 32 seconds remain-
ing to put the Vikings' back on
top.
Mercer had earlier booted three
field goals of 20, 26, and 10 yards.
But the Colts came galloping back.
Myhra, on the last play of the
game, booted a mammoth 52-yd.
field goal to give the Colts a 34-33
win.,
Gerry;Perry kicked a 27-yd.
field goal with .five seconds to
play to give the St. Louis Cardi-
nals a 30-27 upset win over the
defending champion Philadelphia
Eagles.
Y. A. Tittle, a fine old pro, com-
pleted' 27 out of 46 passes for 325
yards to lead the New York Gi-
ants to a 24-21 victory over the
Washington Redskins. Washington
has now lost 11 regular season
games in a row and 16 straight
including exhibition action.

ex-Michigan All-American Ron
Kramer scoring a touchdown, out-
classed the Chicago Bears, 24-0.
The Los Angeles Rams, sparked
by a 96-yd. touchdown pass from
Frank Ryan to Ollie Matson in
the last three minutes of play,
won their first league game of the
year, defeating Pittsburgh 24-14.
Titans Lead League
In American'Football' League
action, the New York Titans moved
into first place in the Eastern Di-
vision by defeating the Boston
Patriots, 37-30.
-Other action saw Dallas retain
its. second-place standing in the
Western Division by downing de-
fending AFL champion Houston,
26-21. Rounding out the sched-
ule, Oakland beat Denver, 33-19.
