Kress Establishes
S'M' Yardage Mark
Tailback Betters Ortmann' s Record
In First Season as Regular Player

Ted Kress, star Michigan half-
back, has already set one Univer-
sity of Michigan grid record and is
on his way to establishing another.
Kress is the holder of the best
first year yardage performance in
Michigan history with a total of 1,-
099 yards in eight games. He is
only 273 yards short of the best
season ever recorded by a Michi-
gan player.
* * * .
ALL-AMERICAN Bob Chappius
set the best season record in 1947.
His Rose Bowl performance of 279
yards is included in the total of
1,395. With one game to go, Kress
needs 18 yards to surpass Chap-
plus' nine game total of 1,116. Like
Chappius, Kress may get a chance
to add to his total in the post sea-
son game and therefore eclipse
Chappius' overall record.
The best Michigan mark for a

regular season is out of Kress'
reach this year. In 1939, Tom
Harmon racked up 1,372 yards in
eight games.
The best previous first year
ground-gaining performance of 1,-
093 yards was set by Chuck Ort-
mann in 1948. Kress has already
bettered this mark by six yards.
He has greatly surpassed the first
year mark of Harmon (708 yards'
and Chappius (578 yards.)
* * *
KRESS, RANKING 21st in the
nation in total yardage, has
achieved his total with a balanced
ground and 526 yards through tne
attack, gaining 573 yards on the
air. He is well ahead of Ted To-
por, who has passed for 340 yards,
and just as far ahead of the No.
2 runner, freshman Tony Bran-
off, who has gained 301 yards.

Wolverines
Drill Grimly
For Big Tilt
The Wolverines practiced yes-
terday under dark, threatening
skies on a cold water-logged field.
The somber attitude of the team
matched that of the weather.
There was not much talk, only de-
termination and hard work in evi-
dence.
* , *
WITH Michigan gridders skirt-
ing the mud holes on the field,
the practice was a stereotype of
the previous practice,
Bennie Oosterbaan spent a
good part of the time drilling
his defensive charges in opposi-
tion to Buckeye plays, including,
of course, pass defense against
the highly touted aerial arm of
Ohio quarterback John Borton.
The offensive platoon again ran
through signal drills and worked
with the dummies. A slight varia-
tion was added with Oosterbaan
keeping the team hard at work
until it was necessary to turn on
the lights, an occurrence which
does not happen too often.
The injury slate was still blight-
ed only by the ankle injury sus-
tained by Jim Balog in the Purdue
game which leaves him in doubt-
ful condition for the game Satur-
day; all other players were re-
ported in good shape.
Sophomore Herb 'Geyer, who
made a good showing against Pur-
due after Balog's injury, will again
be called on to fill the gap this
week.
Detroit Ties
Rangers, 2-2
NEW YORK - (R) - Marcel
Pronovost, Detroit's alert, high
scoring defenseman, netted twice
Wednesday night to help the De-
troit Red Wings gain a 2-2 tie
against the National Hockey
League's-cellar dwelling New York
Rangers.
* * *
BOSTON 2, TORONTO 1
TORONTO - (P)-- Real Chev-
refils scored both Boston Bruin
goals Wednesday night as the
Bruins jolted the Toronto Maple
Leafs 2-1 in a National Hockey
League game.

Number One
Team Eyes
24th int Row
EAST LANSING--(')-Like a
runner weary and leg-sore, Michi-
gan State's football team is gath-
ering breath for the last hurdle
this week.
If the Spartans can down Mar-
quette in the last game of the sea-
son they will have bagged their
24th straight game.
* * *
THEY WILL also have conclud-
ed their second straight year with-
out defeat and will have a stran-
glehold on the mythical national
title.
Although the coaches have
had a strong temptation to let
the squad coast after the nerve-
wracking win over Notre Dame,
the order has been practice as
usual this week.
Coach Biggie Munn has even
allowed a little cautious scrim-
mage.
* * *
"AT THIS stage of the game,"
Munn said, "its a hard decision to
make. You have to decide whether
or not to risk an injury."
"Marquette will move in with
a record book containing a com-
plete analysis of Spartan play
so far this season.

By DICK LEWIS
Thurlow Weed tips the scales
at 128 pounds.
He stands only five feet, five
inches tall. Whenever he runs
out on the football field in his
padless uniform, everybody laughs.
* * *
EVERYBODY, that is, except
the Ohio State opponent that rea-
lizes the full meaning of the small-
est grid performer in the Western
Conference.
For left - footed sophomore
Tad Weed represents the most
potent kicking force in the Big
Ten today.
Northwestern found that out a
few weeks back when the stout-
hearted 19-year-old from Colum-
bus booted a 17-yard field goal
late in the fourth quarter to pre-
sent the Buckeyes with a last ditch
24-21 decision.
THIS FEAT was actually child's
play for the sawed-off gridder who
is often refused entrance to for-
eign football stadia because of his
§mall size.
Earlier in the year he as-
tounded the OSU camp by toe-
ing the pigskin across the bar
810 times before he flubbed one
a couple of feet to the left of
the post.

Weed blamed himself for the
failure to kick 1,000 in a row be-
cause he."got too tense and wor-
ried under the pressures" as he
neared his goal.
HE SAID he was under too much
pressure as he tried to kick 300
over the goal post in one day.
Oddly enough, Weed has al-
ready become a hero without
playing a second of football,
since the clock is stopped during
the try for the extra point.
OSU's answer to Lou Groza will
also become the littlest man ever
to win a , football letter at the
Columbus institution.
* * *
WEED CURRENTLY rates as
his team's fourth highest scorer

WONDROUS WEED:
Buckeye Back Boots Big Points

with two field goals and 20 out
of 22 conversions in eight games
Just what has made Weed the
automatic kicker that he is? All
you have to do is drop in at a
Buck football practice any af-
ternoon down at Columbus.
There are two practice fields for
the Ohio State grid forces in their
home lair. On one of these, the
big boys knock each other all over
the turf.
On the other, a diminutive fig-
ure listed as a quarterback in the
official program kicks ball after
ball. He doesn't have a manager
to chase the football for him.
All he does is kick and chase
the ball, hour after hour, all by
his lonesome.

Best of Week
NEW YORK-(P)-Sam Stollen-
werck, a little Southern Methodist
halfback who weighs only 160,
came off the sidelines to lead the
Mustangs from a 17-0 deficit to
a 27-17 victory over Arkansas last
Saturday.
As a result of this somewhat sen-
sational one-man feat, Stollen-
werck was named Wednesday as
Associated Press back of the week,
edging out such brilliant perform-
ers as Jimmy Lear of Mississippi,
Alan Ameche of Wisconsin, Andy
Kozar of Tennessee and Charley
Maloy of Holy Cross.
Before last Saturday, the pint-
sized SMU junior had taken
part in only four rushing plays
and 10 passes this season. But
when Arkansas moved into a
17-0 lead, Coach Rusty Russell
called Stollenwerck from the
bench.
Little Sammy started pitching.
Before the game ended, he had
connected on 10 of 24 passes for
209 yards and three touchdowns
and had kicked three of four con-
versions.

Top Backs Clash Saturday as
USC, UCLA Decide Champion

LOS ANGELES - (R) - Two of
the country's best tailbacks, Paul
Cameron of UCLA and Jimmy
Sears of Southerr California,
Wednesday were pronounced ready
for full time action when their
teams collide in Memorial Coli-
seum Saturday in a contest for the
Pacific Coast Conference's cham-
pionship and Rose Bowl assign-
ment.
The game will be televised na-
tionally and will afford arm chair
observers an opportunity to watch
an undefeated pair of exponents
of the single wing style of foot-
ball take each other apart.
THE TAILBACKS, operating
x from the left halfback position,
are the key players in the single
wing.
Red Sanders, the USLA coach,
is a recognized authority on the
single wing.

Sanders calls his man Cameron

the greatest tailback
seen, and 167-pound
best all-round back in

he's ever
Sears the
the nation.
