SUCCESS STORY:

Attack for Indiana

FOR THE FUTURE BOOK:
58 Frosh Gridders Earn Numerals

By TED PAPES
Ozzie Clark is a football player
who :never was a hero.
And yet, the acehMichigan de-
fensive end has never ceased
climbing the ladder of gridiron
success. It may be interesting to
thread down that ladder to see
just how Clark got that way.
* * *
THINGS STARTED out in a lit-
tle New Jersey town, Montclair,
where Ozzie earned a sophomore
position on the high school eleven
as % halfback. But evidently he
wasn't cut out for the job. The
first time he was sent out on the
field, the opposition completed a
touchdown pass over his head, a
play which cleared the way for a
little bench duty.
For the next two seasons, 1943
and 1944, he was converted into
an end, and handled the assign-
ment well as Montclair battled
to two consecutive state champ-
ionships. Ozzie wasn't named to
any all-squads, but in recogni-
tion of his steady work he was
designated as the Montclair
player to attend the 1944 Heis-
man football award dinner in
New York.
It was a big night for Clark. He
was introduced to the Heisman
winner, the brilliant Les Horvath
of Ohio State, and his coach, Paul
Brown, the now famous coach of
Cleveland's professional Browns.
*.-* *
SHORTLY AFTER his gradua-
tion Ozzie enrolled at Notre Dame
where the wartime freshman rule
permitted him to join 30 end cand-
idates at football practice. He had
resigned himself to a position with
the Irish junior varsity.
One day he and the rest of the
squad had boarded a bus to
travel to Miami, Ohio, for a
game. Just as the vehicle was
about to leave, coach Harry Ja-
cunski came running after Ozzie
with the news that he was to
dress with the big boys for the
season opener against Illinois.
That was his big break.
He got into several games with
the green-shirts, the most memor-
able one being the 1945 Army game
which the Ramblers lost, 48-0. He
..caught the last Cadet kickoff in

members of an all-star squad
which defeated the Korean stars,
13-0, in the Rice Bowl at Lou
Gehrig Stadium in Yokohama.
In 1947 Clark was discharged.
He then was trying to decide
where to continue his schooling,
with Notre Dame and Yale high
on his list. Finally he selected
Michigan for its fine medical
school. Besides enjoying schol-
astic success he resumed his grid-
iron activity and became the de-
pendable defensive player he is
today.
The most ironical incident of
his career came last year in
the Wolverine-Indiana games He
caught a pass and ran 50 yards to
the Hoosier two where he was
pushed out of bounds, but the play

there was no infraction - and
that was one of TWO passes Ozzie
has snagged in college football.
There will be no pro contract
for Clark. He is preparing for a
career as a physician and hopest
to qualify for the Michigan school.
If he does he will have one more1
year of eligibility, and if he runs
true to form he'll probably climb
a few more rungs up that ladder.z

'Shutout Jinx 1
Haunts Loser
By BILL BRENTONT
If past records mean anything,
Sthe loser of the Michigan-Indiana
battle tomorrow will not score.
In the 16 meetings between the
two clubs thus far, the losing ele-
ven has been shut out no less than
13 times. Michigan was the victim
twice with the Hoosiers blanked
Son 11 occasions.
* * *
IMAIN DIFFICULTY in applyingt
this prediction to the 1949 game
is that neither Indiana nora
Michigan has been whitewashed so
far this year. Even against such
opponents as Notre Dame, Ohio
State and linois, the Hoosiers
scored, while the Wolverines have
tallied a total of four touchdowns
in their two losses.
Nick Sebek to Cliff Anderson
through the air has been thes
big Indiana scoring weapon in
their first seven games. Sebek,
the Big Ten's second passer,
has pitched three scoring I
heaves in his 482-yard total, n
while Anderson leads the West-
ern Conference in pass-receiv-
ing with 15 grabs for 260 yards
and two tallies.
A third Hoosier to watch 'is
halfback Bobby Robertson from
South Bend, Indiana. The negro
flash can run, pass or kick and
leads the Conference in booting
with a 42.2-yard average on 19
punts.l
The eyes of many Detroiters
will be on the stocky frame of
Hamtramck's Danny Thomas,
however. Thomas, who served 22z
months in the Marine Corps start-r
ing as a 15-year-old, beat out
225-pound Casimer Witucki for
the right guard post and will be
making his first start of the sea-
son against Michigan. He stands
5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs
190 pounds.

Michigan's aerial attack, so far
well below the pace set by Wol-
verine gridders ofthe past few
years, was given a thorough work-
ing over yesterday afternoon as
Charlie Ortmann and Wally Ten-
inga threw the pigskin all over
Ferry Field for nearly an hour.
If statistics tell any kind of a
story, the Wolverines have ample
reason to sharpen up on their ov-
erhead thrusts, since the latest
Western Conference figures reveal
that only two teams have a poorer
passing percentage than Michigan.
EVEN THOUGH the Wolverines
have offset this shortcoming with
a much stepped up ground offen-
sive, there is little doubt that Ben-
nie Oosterbaan would like to see
a few more completions against
the Hoosiers tomorrow and the
Buckeyes next week.
Leading the receivers yester-
day, incidentally, was a little
right half named Leo Koceski,
who probably won't see much
action against Indiana.
According to Leo, there is little
doubt that he will play tomorrow.
Oosterbaan, though, will necessar-
ily be extremely hesitant in letting

him risk further injruy that would
keep him out of the all-important
Ohio State clash.
Defense against Indiana's po-
tent passing offensive also came
in for attention yesterday. The
statistics show that the Hoosiers
have averaged 124 yards a game
via the airways in their four
conference tussles, 29 more than
the Wolverines have netted per
game.
Charlie Lentz, whose defensive
abilities were unknown until Ort-
mann was injured in the Army
game, is now the Wolverine's ace
pass stealer. In fact, he has five
interceptions to his credit and is
in a good position to break the
conference record of six.

McEwen Faces Stiffest Test
In Cross-CountryTitle Meet

The finest field of distance run-
ners in the history of Western
Conference track and cross-coun-
try will give Michigan's outstand-
ing sophomore iron-man, Don
McEwen, an acid test of his abili-
ties this afternoon.
Harriers from six Big Ten
schools will toe the mark in Chi-
cago's Washington Park at 3:00
p.m. today in the 40th Annual
Western Conference cross country
meet.
Today's race marks the first
time in nearly a decade that Mich-
igan has been represented in the
meet. Although Coach Don Can-
ham did not file an entry for a
complete team, he left for the
windy city yesterday with Mc-
Ewen and Shel Capp, who is cur-
rently the number-two distance
man on, the varsity squad.
Don Gehrmann, Wisconsin's sen-
sational distance runner, is fa-
vored to win the race, and if he
does, he'll be the first runner on
I.

the records ever to win the race
four times.
He'll receive plenty of competi-
tion, however, since all of the first
fifteen place winners from last
year's meet, in addition to all the
place winners in the mile and two
mile events in last spring's Con-
ference Outdoor track meet, are
entered.
