Clements was the nation's leading offensive star when he suffered a concussion last Friday night in the opening minutes of the Longhorns' loss to Southern California. Clements joined the team in a light workout Monday and Dr. John Arthur Arkcher said. "I believe some fellows do," Ford said. "My arm doesn't start stiffening up until the third (lay. which would be Wednesday. So I should be ready in the last game if Tommy gets in trouble."

Coaches Praise Ron Kramer, Michigan's Classy Wingman By J1MMT BRESL1N NEA Staff C orrespomlent This was before the football season start cd and a concerned Ray Eliot was talking about the Big Ten. "Kramer," said the Illinois coach, "may be the best athlete this conference has had in many years. He's as fine an end as you'd want. You could talk about him in terms of his coach, Benny Oosterbaan. Don Hutson Let's not get me on the spot here." Eliot was talking about Ron Kramer, the 6-3, 220-pound end who is Michigan's idea of an All-America this season. Listening to him, you get an idea of how highly regarded Kramer is. This huge wingman from East Detroit had only one season of game experience behind him as Eliot spoke, yet the top ends in football history were being mentioned in the same breath. A sheH-shorKed Don Faurot leaned against the dressing room 'jwu 1 after Kramer, and Michigan had defeated Missouri, -12-7. and said: "Kramer is the greatest end I've seen in college." What prompted this was a display which saw the bi£ e'.iy 'it catch the only seven passed tossed j at him (2) score 23 points on three touchdowns and five extra points (3) kick off into the Missouri end around play for good yardage twice i mer, says. "And we feel he will be and (5) force Missouri to forpet any | a j ot mo fe effective when our pass- sweeps around his defensive left end Ron Kramer position. "He is remarkable," Oosterbaan, ing backs improve. We used five men as passers at the season's start and if one develops into a good one, Ron will be tougher to handle. "Tom Maentz, a real good boy who is our other end, should be back by mid-season and he'll help take a lot of the pressure off Ron. They won't be able to triple team Kramer with Maentz out there." Kramer does things with calm assurance. He has a normal repertoire of fakes and good speed, but his main asset in pass grabbing is size. Big hips keep .defenders ofl when Kramer goes up for a pass. Michigan backs know this better than anybody. "Just get the ball up in i.he air near Ron and you've sot a completion." is how one of them puts it. With Kramer, a fine Mirhigan squad is given a good chance to take the Big Ten title and go on to the Rose Bowl. Six years ago. Kramer was nearly cnl from an East Detroit intermediate football tea me because he was too clumsy. A 6-6 high jumper, Kramer also came into his own as a top-notch basektball forward last winter leading the earn in scoring. "He is an All-America." Benny Ooserbaan reminds you, "and he's sill improving." 'It's evert better than 'sweet-mash' bourbon". ', I ('Even smoother than 'sour-mash' bourbon and only "mellow-mash" bourbon ...
