Of fense Star
NEW YORK -() - Dick Ka-
maier, Princeton's All America
backfield star and the most hon-
ored college football player of 1951,
was officially recognized yesterday
as the major-college total offense
leader for the season.
The Tiger ace gained the of-
fense championship with 1,827
yards in rushing and passing to
beat out Don Klosterman of Loy-
ola at Los Angeles, runner up
with 1,803 yards. None of the
others was close, final statistics
of the NCAA service bureau
KAZMAIER IS the first eastern
player to win the offense crown,
and only the fourth in the last
15 years from a team east of the
Mississippi to rank as No. 1.
Frankie Sinkwich of Georgia won
in 1942, Bob Hoernschemeyer of
Indiana in 1943, and Travis Tid-
well of Auburn in 1946.
Dazzling Dick, who ranked No.
15 in offense a year ago, also
led the nation in touchdown re-
sponsibility, personally account-
ing for 22 Tiger tallies. The
senior from Maumee, Ohio,
scored nine touchdowns himself
and passed for 13 others.
Kazmaier's yardage was almost
equally divided, with 861 on the
ground andi 966 through passes.
Klosterman, an aerial T-quarter-
back specialist, threw for 1,843
yards but had a minus 40 yards
as a ball carrier. Klosterman was
in the No. 11 place last year.

THIRD PLACE went to Bill
Wade, senior quarterback at Van-
derbilt, with 1,646 yards. The only
sophomore to finish in the first
10-Georgia's Zeke Bratkowski--
got fourth place with 1,634 yards.
Johnny Bright of Drake, the
leader until he suffered a broken
jaw, was ninth with 1,553 yards.
He is the only player among the
top 15 for the last three years n
a row. He was the leader ihe
last two years.
" Other repeaters among the top
15 from 1950 are Wade, up from
ninth; and Kentucky's Vito Par-
illi, who was sixth a year ago and
11th this season.
OLLIE MATSON of San Fran-
cisco and Parilli tied for second
in touchdown responsibility with
21 each. Matson scored 21 touch-
downs and Parilli had 19 touch-
down passes, and scored twice.
Don Babers, Oklahoma, A-&M
sophomore, was the busiest back,
running 348 plays from scrim-
mage. Klosterman operated on
Bright's average of 6.75 yards
per offense effort was best for
those who handled 200 or more
plays. Kazmaier's average was

MONTREAL GOALIE MAKES SAVE ON
'M' SWIMMING HOPES:
(Fourth in a series of articles deal-
ing with the 1951-52 ichlgan swim-
ming team. Today's a'ticie covers the
breaststrokers and backstrokers.)
By HERB NEIL
Two national champions pace
the breaststroke department of the
1951-52 Michigan swimming team
and several promising but inexper-
ienced natators carry the Wolver-
ines' backstroke hopes.
John Davies and Stew Elliott,
co-captains of this year's team,
give Michigan two of the finest
breaststrokers which a team could
ask for. Davies is the National
A.A.U. outdoor champion in both
the 100 and 200-meter breakstroke,
while Elliott claims the N.C.A.A.
100-yard breaststroke title.
IN THE BACKSTROKE the
Wolverines will depend upon two
state high school champions, John
Sampson and Dyke Purdy, and
fast swimming sophomore John
Chase during the coming season.
Although none of the three
have swum in any college com-
petition as yet, their high school
records indicate that they will
provide adequate competition
for Michigan opponents in the
backstroke during the next few
