An illness plagued Michigan
hockey team invades Minnesota
tonight for a weekend series
against the league leading Goph-
Minesota figures to throw up a
proven defensive unit against
Michigan's offensive minded
Several Michigan Icers will be
out of action with the flu. Among
those felled are defenseman Mich-
ael Jarry, Wing Dave Perrin, and
Center Paul Gamsby. Gamsby;
and Perrin are among the top four
scorers for Michigan, while Jar-
ry's absence won't help the al-
ready weak defense of the Wol-
verines. Gamsby will make the
trip to Minnesota but will defin-
itely not play in the first game.
Asa 'result of the team's p o o r
health, not much was accomplish-
ed in praotice this week.
AT THE SEASON'S start, Min-
nesota looked to its young play-
ers to improve on an expected
impotent offense. But that im-
potent of fense never resulted.
Freshman Mike Antonovich, ith
11 goals and 7 assists, leads t h e
Gophers in scoring. A sophomore,
Ron Peltier, has also boosted
Minnesota's scoring punch with
12 points.
A whole host of sophomores and
freshmen have come to Michigan's
aid this year. Leading the defense
are Sophomores Karl Bagnell in
goal and Jean-yves Cartier, a de-
fenseman. Sophomore Bernie Gag-
4. non leads the team in scoring,
while Freshmen Michey Shaw and
Michel Jarry have been strong
on offense and defense, respective-
Michigan Coach Al Renfrew
evaluated Minnesota's icers by say-
ing, "They have a fine goalie and
excellent speed . . . They're be-
ginning to gell."
THE GOPHER'S defense has
four returning lettermen. They,
along with All-American candi-
date Murray McLachlan in goal,
have had the lowest average of
goals allowed per game in thes
conference; Michigan has t h e
highest average of goals scored
per game in the league.
McLadhlan was WCHA Sopho-
more of the Year two years ago,
and last .year he was named All-
WCHA and MVP. Minnesota
Coach Glen Sonmor calls Mc-
Lachlan the best collggiate goalie
in the nation. This year the Goph-

er's goaltender sports a 3.2 goals
allowed per game average.
Michigan's defense has not
fared as well as the offensive unit.
However, there have been a few
bright spots. Sophomore K a r 1
Bagnell has proven to be an ex-
cellent replacement for last year's
All-American goalie, Jim Keough.
Bagnell has given up an average
of 4.1 goals per game.
But Michigan's defense doesn't
end with Bagnell. Cartier h a s
shown himself to be a scrappy
player behindrhishown blue line,
and' he is more than adequate in
the offensive zone at the point.
Still; defense appears to be
Michigan's nemesis. Many fail-
ures to clear the puck from in
front of the net has resulted in
several cheap goals for the opposi-
MICHIGAN'S forechecking has
also been inconsistent, and often
times the defense has been slow
in getting back after a rush. A
good deal of this sloppy defense
is due to Michigan's offensive
style of play, but much of it can
also be'attributed to mental laps-
es on the part of the defensemen
and the front line.
The Gopher's offense may not
be as potent as Michigan's, but
Minnesota does lead the WCHA.
So if the Wolverines hope to stay
in the title race they'll need an
extra effort on defense - espec-
ially with high scorers Gamsby
and Perrin out of action.
Michigan's-conference record is
7-5, while Minnesota's stands at
9-3. A sweep by the Wolverines
would even the two teams' re-
cords. A sweep by the Gophers
would put Michigan right out of
the title picture.
On Michigan's recent play
Coach Renfrew remarked, "We're
playing as well as anyone in the
league, except Minnesota." Thus
victory at Minnesota will require
a total team effort from a weak-,
ened Wolverine team. But Mich-,
igan is not about to concede t h e
battle of the little red lights.

In 77 straight dual meets, the
Mustang tankers have defeated
their opponents and therefore,
swimming about twelve meets a
year, its been almost seven years
since SMU's swimmers have tasted
defeat. Last year, the Mustangs
recorded victory number 70 against
Michigan in a meet in Dallas, 61-
52, and the Wolverines would very
much like to revenge that loss.
Again this year, the Mustangs
have some of the finest talent in
the nation. Six of their swimmers
were named to All-American teams
last year, three of them to the
NCAA team (F r ed Schlicher,
Charlie Minder, and Jerry Heiden-
reich) while three others were
elected to the high school All-
American team.
Commenting on their 77 dual
meet wins in a row, SMU head
coach "Red" Barr denies that
there is any extra pressure on the
squad to extend the streak but he
states that "We can't help but
think about it a little bit. Actually,
it's been more of an incentive to
the squad."
The team arrived in Ann Arbor
last night and after an hour prac-
tice session in Matt Mann pool,
Barr had still not made up his
mind who was going to swim in
what race." I probably won't make
up my mind until sometime to-
morrow," he said. "Actually, I'd
really like to know where (Gary)
Kinkead and (Juan) Bello are
going to swim before I make up
my mind."
Barr's concern is well founded
since at times, swim meets almost
seem like giant chess games with

Are Proud to Announce
The Renewal of Their

SEATTLE (P) - The Seattle
Times has quoted William Daley,
major owner of the Seattle Pilots
as saying the American League
baseball franchise "is up for grabs.
It is no longer rooted in Seattle."
The front page story followed
a 2 p.m. deadline yesterday set by
the American League for a Seattle
group hoping to buy the franchise'
to sort out a $3.5 million loan
Shortly after the deadline, La-
mar Hunt and Tommy Mercer, two
Texas magnates interested in get-'
ting the franchise for Dallas-Fort
Worth, formally applied to the
league for the franchise.
"It could be Dallas or Milwau-;
kee," Daley said. "The league will
decide that in its meeting in
Oakland Tuesday."
Daley shrugged off a statement
by Seattle Mayor Wes Uhlman'
Wednesday that if the Pilots were
transferred out of Seattle the city
would institute a "multimillion
dollar suit" against the league and
Pacific Northwest Sports, Inc., the
Pilots corporate body.
There had been reports that a
telephone poll had been held
among the other 11 owners in the
league and that Dallas-Fort Worth
had been picked averMilwaukee.
"The telephone calls were to
set up Tuesday's meeting in Oak-
land. That's when and where the
destination of the Pilots will be
decided," Daley said.I
"The league would like to re-
main in Seattle, but the money
there is not forthcoming. No one
can operate without money," he
Daley's statement, according to
The Times, added "The American
League has no other choice but
to move the franchise. How can s
transfer be avoided?

"The league has given Seattle
every chance, but the city has not
been able to raise the money. Sc
there is no other choice," The
Times quoted Daley as saying.
Daley's announcement blasted
apart any remaining hopes that
a local group headed by business-
man Fred Danz could put together
a financial package and buy the
Pilots. The league had approved
in December the sale of the major.
ity stock of the Pilots to the Danz
group for a reported $10.5 million.
But later that month a sudden
new obstacle appeared when the
Bank of California demanded pay-
ment of $3.5 million loaned to
Pacific Northwest Sports andas-
sumed by the group trying to buy
the club.
A bank spokesman said the
original loan agreement called for
payment if the franchise were

sold. The Jan. 22 deadline imposed
by the league was to refinance the
loan and meet other conditions
the league set to show financial
President Joe Cronin of the
American League said the league
woulJ receive a report on the
Seattle situation at the Tuesday
meeting and that, a report in the
Houston Chronicle was "not accu-
rate." _

mally or informally," he con-

Congressman attacks
reserve clause legality



: . :.

York Congressman has introduced
a bill to outlaw organized base-
ball's reserve clause, now being.
challenged by Curt Flood .in the
courts under the antitrust laws.
Rep. John Wydler, a Nassau
County Republican, said baseball
operates under a privileged sanc-
tuary enjoyed by no other sport.
"It's time for the Congress to
mtake clear that the agreements
to eliminate competition among
baseball teams are un-American,
undesirable and clearly in re-
straint of trade and a violation
of the human rights and dignities
of American citizens," he said.
Flood, a star outfielder for the
St. Louis Cardinals for 12 years,
was traded last fall to Philadel-
phia. However, he retained form-
er Supreme Court Justice Arthur
J. Goldberg as his counsel and be-
gan a legal test of baseball's re-
serve's clause - which binds a
player to a team until he retires
or is traded.
'Wydler, a four-term cong~ress-
man, said the purpose of the re-
serve clause "is to reduce costs of
the owners of baseball teams by
eliminating competition for play-
ers' services..
"This is a right enjoyed by no

other American industry," he said.
"Industries dependent on s t a r s
and it-ding figures, such as movie
companies, and other American
sports exist without benefit of the
extra special protection the re-
serve clause.
"The plain fact is that b a s e-
ball is a business and it should
meet the same business standards
as another business in our coun-
try. It's present special privileges
are against public policy and
should be brought to an end,"
said Wydler.
