RCadet Reserve Strength
Ortmann's Passing Leads Maize and Blue
In Tremendous First Half Offensive Show
By BOB SANDELL
(Associate Sports Editor)
NEW YORK-A brilliant second half rally and a couple of reserve
halfbacks gave mighty Army its 23rd straight triumph yesterday and
fourth win without loss over Michigan's Wolverines.
The two backs, Al Pollard and Vic Pollock, sparked third and
fourth period drives that brought the Cadets a smashing 27-6 victory
before 67,076 fans in Yankee Stadium.
THE WOLVERINES, led by Charlie Ortmann, put on a tremen-
dous first half show for the huge crowd, and narrowly missed run-
ning the Cadets right off the field before intermission.
But beginning late' in the third quarter the Cadets could
do no wrong and they took advantage of the breaks to score
three quick touchdowns and doom the Michiganders to their
second setback in three games.
Michigan lost the services of their right halfback, Leo Koceski,
early in the second quarter and the Wolverines sorely missed his
running and kicking.

tied the count just before the half
Fullback Don Dufek plunged
forthe lone Wolverine score
while Pollock scored twice and
Pollard and JackrMartin once
each for the Cadets.
Michigan received the kickoff
and on the third play nearly lost
the ball to Army deep in their own
territory. Pete Kinyon finally re-
covered Ortmann's fumble on the

successive Army fumbles and the
second one was costly for the
Cadets. Jim Cain, the Army .left
half, lost the pigskin on the 34-
yard line and Tony Momsen hop-
ped on it for the Wolverines.
It took the Wolverines just
six plays to score from that
point. Ortmann pitched to Bill
Putich for two first downs to
the Army ten. Dufek then took
over and hit right guard twice,
the second time going into the
end zone. The try for extra
point was fumbled.
Army could get nowhere after
the kickoff and the ball changed
hands several times before Mich-
igan began moving again shortly
before the second quarter opened.

THEY RECOVERED another
Cain fumble on the Army 48 and
weren't stopped until they reach-
ed the one-yard line.
Putich and Ortmann both
passed for good gains and for
the second time in the contest
the Wolverines were on the
Army ten with first down. Du-
fek went down to the three in
two plays, but then Frank How-
ell, substituting for the injured
Koceski, was caught on the five
for a loss.
With fourth down Putich went
back to pass. He could find no
receivers and started off to his
right with practically a clear field
in front of him. He was brought
down with less than a yard to go

'M' Grid radition, Boasts 33 All-Americans
Of 5 .To Play
In Rose Bowl
By JOE EPSTEIN
Four of Michigan's thirty-three
All-American grid stars have per-
formed in the annual Rose Bowl
classic, and a fifth, Al Wahl, will
see action in today's' game.
Willie Heston, sensational half-
back on Fielding H. Yost's famous
"point-a-minute" teams, was a
member of the 1902 Wolverine ele-
ven which soundly trounced Stan-
ford in the New Year's Day con-
test by a 49-0 score.

HESTON was nominated for an
All-American slot by Walter Camp
in 1903 when Camp began his long
reign as Dean of the All-Ameri=
can team selectors, and was chosen
by Camp on the 1904 squad as well.
The 1948 team relied heavily on
the services of three All-Americans
-halfbacks Bob Chappuis and
Bump Eiliott and end Dick Rifen-
burg. Chappius had one of the
best days of his very successful
career, establishing a new Rose
Bowl record for total offense.
Michigan's first All-American,
selected in 1898 by Casper Whit-
ney of HARPER'S WEEKLY,
was the great Wolverine center
of that year, W. R. Cunningham.

IN 1907, Adolph "Germany"
Schultz, acclaimed by many as the
greatest center ever to wear the
Maize and Blue, was selected as
Michigan's third All-American. Al-
bert Benbrook, Michigan's huge 6'
6" guard, was named to both the
1909 and 1910 teams.
The first Wolverine end to be
honored as a Camp All-Ameri-
can was Stanfield Wells, another
member of the 1910 team.
After a three year lapse,/James
Craig became the sixth Michigan
All-American. Craig was followed
by another halfback, John Maul-
betsch, who was named on the

Michigan, after another three
year lapse, again began produc-

of the greatest pivot men in the.!
history of football.

Ralph Heikkeneri, performing at
the guard slot, started the Michi-

man named by many as the great-
est back of all time. He was, of

the Wolverines to two highly suc-

Harmon's running mate, full-
back "Bullet Bob" Westfall, suc-
