Loken Unveils
Frosh Squad
By BILL DINNER
Following a brief excursion to
Eastern Michigan University last
weekend, the Michigan gymnasts
will travel west to Kalamazoo for
an exhibition meet with the
young Western Michigan Broncos.
Tonight's meet, because it is
exhibition, will permit both fresh-
man squads to participate. This
will enable the freshmai teams
to acquire their first experience
in regular meet competition.
Ac the helm of the Broncos is
coach Fred Orloisky, an outstand-
ing gymnast in his own right. He
was national AAU all-around, still
rings, and parallel bar champion,
besides being on the United States
1960 Olympic team. Orlofsky was
named head coach in August 1966
and was presented the task of
developing a new squad from
scratch. Due to his late appoint-
ment he was unable to recruit
any outside talent for this year's
varsity, and has had to rely on
talent presently at the school.
Broncos Green
Only in their second year of
competition the Broncos have few
talented gymnasts. The standouts1
of the small ten-man team could
be considered Alan Link on side
horse or Harvey Whitefield, a
decent all-around man. The only1
other returning lettermen are
Mark Marzol and Janis Anderson,
both on the trampoline. With this
lack of experience and a major
depth problem, Western Michigan
should barely be visible in the
final standings.
Turning to the Western Michi-
gan freshmen, matters brighten
considerable. In his first oppor-
tunity at recruiting, Orlofsky has

CHUCK NORBY, Minnesota's third leading scorer and fifth in
the WCHA, was instrumental in the Gopher's 3-1 victory over
Michigan in the Big Ten Tourney. The Wolverine's face Min-
nesota tonight and tomorrow night in the Coliseum.

WINNING FORM IS DISPLAYED by junior Chuck Froeming as
he practices an iron cross on the still rings. Froeming has shown
tremendous improvement on the rings this season and placed
first last week- in the meet with Eastern Michigan.

Gambucci also adds experience to
the Gopher offense.
Anchoring the defense is senior
Dick Paradise, whom Minnesota
coach Glen Sonmor has singled
out for his aggressive play.
Minding the net has been
sophomore Murray McLachlan
whose goal-tending has been a
major factor in the Gopher's rise
from last year's last place finish.
Tonight's contest should produce
a match between two of the na-
tion's finest collegiate net-minders
in McLachlan and Michigan's Jim
Keough.
In what has been a disappoint-
ing start, only Keough's play has
been outstanding for the Wol-
verines.
Two of Michigan's four losses

this season have been in sudden-
death overtime. So far, Renfrew
has not found a spark plug who
can ignite the team in clutch
situations, nor is he expecting to
find one. "Everybody has to wgrk
as hard as they can on this team
or else we're in trouble.
"'It's such a tough league," Ren-
frew moans, "but we're in the
same class as anyone."
Michigan played possibly its
finest hockey of the season in
the latter half of its losing effort
in East Lansing last Saturday
night. And the return of speed-
ster Dave Perrin, who has been
out of action with the flu for
two weeks, is bound to help.
But the old coliseum may well
have to make the difference.

FIRST LECTURE ON MONDAY!

NEW YORK (A')-John Pont,
who pulled off a 100-1 feat in lead-
ing Indiana University through a
9-1 season and into the Rose Bowl,
was named college football's Coach
of the Year yesterday by his 'fel-
low coaches.
The 39-year-old Miami of Ohio
graduate was voted the annual
Kodak Award in a poll of 2,000
members of the American Football
Coaches Association.
Pont took a Hoosier team that
had won only one of 10 games in
1966 and turned it into a winner
that placed fourth in The Asso-
-ciated Press national rankings.
"Discipline and imagination
were the trademarks of our team,"
Pont said. "The boys possessed
tremendous spirit and drive. They
didn't believe they could be beaten.
They were a team that would
make any coach look good."

Woody Hayes at Miami. He coach-
ed seven years at Miami and two
at Yale University before taking
the Indiana job in 1965.
"Coaching is coaching," he said,
in describing the difference be-
tween the Ivy League and the rug-
ged Big Ten. "The Ivy League has
some great boys, but not as many
as the Big Ten. Depth of material
is the difference."
Pont said that at Indiana this
year he and his staff picked the
best 22 players and decided to for-
get about replacements.
"We sought to instill responsi-
bility in them fromthe beginning,"
he added. "I called no more than
10 per cent of the plays. The
other 90 per cent of the plays were
left to our quarterback, Harry
Gonso.
"I believe in giving this responsi-
bility to the players and we get
more out of them. They learned
to believe in themselves. They were
a remarkable group."
The Hoosiers lost only one game
-to Minnesota, 33-7-but came

nabed a few boys with excellent
promise.
Heading the freshmen team are
two Michigan boys in Bob Barrow,
who performs all-around except
the side horse, and Chuck Beatty
who has looked impressive in floor
exercises. Filling the side horse gap
is Wamon Guinn who enrolled
this semester and will not be eligi-
ble till January. Although the
freshmen squad has had little ex-
perience there is a good chance
that they will out perform the var-
sity squad.
Even though the meet is slated
as exhibition, the Michigan gym-
nasts should be in top form in
preparation for an important meet
against a very strong Iowa team
next week.
Heading the Michigan gymnasts
will be the highly touted tram-
poline trio of Captain Wayne Mil-
ler, Dave Jacobs and George Hunt-
zicker. The sophomore sensation
Sid Jenson, who last week cap-
tured two firsts and a second
against Eastern Michigan will be
trying for a repeat performance.
Flying Finish
Another standout last week was
Chuck Froeming. He took first
place on the still rings with a solid
performance and has been work-
ing hard all week polishing his
double flyaway dismount.
In addition to the trampoline
trio another friendly rivalry be-
tween sophomore Jim Deboo, Dave
Geddes, and Mike Carpenter is
developing on the side horse.
Freshman Springboard
This will be the first meet for
most of the Michigan freshmen
and it should act as a spring-
board for the eight freshmen that
Newt Loken is sending to the
meet.
And if two great trios aren't
enough Coach Loken has recruited
what might be three of the best
all-around freshmen in the Big
Ten: Ed Howard from NewTrier
High near Chicago; Rick Mc-
Curdy, a New Jersey boy; and
Murry Plotkin from Chicago's

Niles North. Plotkin participated
in the Midwest Open and grabbed
seventh place in vaulting against
some of the best. Another New
Trier grad attending the meet will
be John Cotsirilos who is present-
ly concentrating on the high bar.
One other Michigan trio will
also make the trip, Kelly Cannon
from Glenbroken High, Mike
Shapiro from Niles West, and Bob
Wagner, a sophomore who trans-
fered from Iowa, all whom work
on the side horse.
Although Michigan should eas-
ily outdistance Western Michigan
University, it will give the Bronco
fans a good opportunity to ob-
serve a top rate gymnastics exhi-
bition.

The St. Louis Cardinals tradeds."
outfielder Alex Johnson, older
brother of Michigan football star
Ron Johnson, to the Cincinnati
Reds in exchange for outfielder
Dick Simpson yesterday.
Johnson came to the Cardinals
from the Phillies following the
1965 season but has had two dis-
appointing years. After hitting
.294 and .303 at Philadelphia, he
hit only .186 in 25 games for the
Cards in 1966.
Johnson was sent to the triple
A club at Tulsa where a late-
season surge gave him a .355
batting average and brought him
back to the Cardinals. The 25-
year-old Detroit native alternated
with Roger Maris and Bobby Tol-
anin right field during 1967 but
hit only .233 in 81 games.
Simpson, 24, was traded to
Cincinnati from Baltimore in 1965. 4k
The next year he hit .238 in 92
games for the Reds. Last year
the speedy outfielder hit .259 in
44 games.
