Coach John Matchefts, former
Michigan hockey star, brings his
Colorado College hockey squad in-
to Ann Arbor trying to break a,
four-game WCHA losing streak.
The Tigers looking for their first
league victory of the 1969-70 cam-
paign have lost all four meetings'
with Minnesota. Overall Colorado
is 2-5-1 with its only victories
coming at the hands of Air Force.
Talking about the Tiger attack
Coach Matchefts expressed, "We
have a good nucleus with two
lines-All-America center Bob Col-
lyard, right wing Cliff Purpur and
left wing Casey Ryan making up
one and Jerry O'Connor center-
ing Wayne Horb at left wing and
Bill Baldrica at right wing." Col-
lyard, Purpur and Ryan are jun-
iors; O'Connor, Horb and Baldrica
are sophomores.
"We have adequate personnel for
a third line in Jim Ahlbrecht,
John Campbell, Bruce LaHue,
Mike Bertsch, and Gary Osborne,"
Matchefts added. Campbell and
LaHue are senior wings, and Ahl-
brecht is a junior wing. Fresh-
men Bertsch and Osborne can
handle both wing and center posi-
However Colorado College h a s
nearly become a one-line machine.

Purdue's De Moss to
replace Mollenkopf

Matchefts echoed, "The second
and third lines need improvement
to give Colorado College victories.
ACCORDING TO Matchefts the
Tigers' defense has depth, size,
and finesse. Senior Bill Allen and
junior Bob Langin form one defen-
sive duo while the other pair is
shared between juniors D a 1 e
Yutsyk and Rob Jacobi, and sen-
ior Mark Paulson.
Defense has been Colorado's big-
gest problem. With a 6.7 goals-
against average in WCHA play,
Matchefts should be disturbed.
"We've got to be a good defensive
team, and the defense has to be
a team," Matchefts declared.
Apparently the cohesiveness
isn't there as the Tigers have felt
crushing defeats by Minnesota:
9-5, 4-2, 8-3 and 6-3. Getting the
worst of the deal are the t w o
sophomores who are sharing goal-
tending duties.
THE GOALIES who looked
sharp in the Air Force series have
not had much help against Min-
nesota. They are Doug Bellamy, a
product of Edmonton, Alberta;
and Doug Schum from Montreal,
Matchefts, who always apprec-
iatesda victory over Michigan,
played on Michigan's NCAA
championship squads of 1950-51,
1951-52 and 1952-53. Matchefts al-
so captained the 1952-53 team.
In comparison, Coach Al Ren-
frew of Michigan also was a star
player for the Maize and Blue,
A protege of his ebrother-in-law
Vic Heyliger, Renfrew was a stand-
out between 1946 and 1949. Ren-
frew played on one of the highest
scoring lines in Michigan history
and also on the Wolverines' first
NCAA championship squad in
1948. Like Matchefts, Renfrew was
the 1948-49 Michigan captain.
THE MICHIGAN situation to

than two games in each of the
last five seasons hopes to keep its
football staff intact except f o r
Mollenkopf who stepped down
Wednesday because of h i s ap-
proaching 65th birthday, the
mandatory retirement age.
The retiring coach has insisted
for years that DeMoss and other
assistants have been doing the ac-
tual coaching while Mollenkopf
presided at planning sessions.
"I sincerely hope the staff will
remain intact DeMoss said. "Per-
sonally I plan to spend most of
my coaching time with the quar-
terbacks as I have done. I plan
to recruit as vigorously as ever.

Renfrew discussed the problem.
"Nobody has done extremely well.
We've either played pretty well
as a team or pretty bad."
Renfrew rioted that due to the
holiday season the team is work-
ing longer this week and is con-
centrating on positional play. Bet-
ter coordination between the for-
wards and the defense has also
been stressed.
The icers need a series sweep

NEW YORK (IP) - With the
continuation of an expensive bid-
ding war still facing the two rival
professional basketball leagues the
prospects for a merger brightened
yesterday with another peace of-
fering by the American Basket-
ball Association.
Jack Dolph the new commis-
sioner of the ABA who was not
around when the first merger talks
fell through last August con-
firmed that he has asked Com-
missioner Walter Kennedy of the
National Basketball Association to
resume talks,

"We believe there is sentiment
in the NBA to discuss a merger.
Dolph said after his own league's
owners had met in New York Wed-
Standing in the way are two
major points:
1. The ABA's Washington D.C.
franchise which the NBA feels in-j
fringes on the territory of its
Baltimore team.j
2. The three-year-old ABA's an-'
ti trust suit against the elder andl
more established NBA.
"Basically they the NBA have
given us an ultimatum about what
we must do before they would even
talk about a merger, Dolph said.
While he emphasized that he
was not planning on getting rid
of the Washington franchise-"I
have 11 teams to look after, not
1"-he did offer some hope for
"The move of the franchise from
Oakland to Washington this year
was given as one of the reasons
a merger failed last time," he said,
"but my understanding was that
meeting deteriorated before the
move came up.
"But I believe the problem can
be discussed and a way found to
solve it that would be satisfactory
to the ABA and Earl Foreman,
Washington's owner.
As for the anti-trust suit Dolph
also could see "an area of com-

"They are asking we suspend
the suit, Dolph continued, "and I
told Kennedy we have room to
move on the case. I think the suit
is something we can put off for
a certain period of time.
"'I can understand their position
of not wanting to make war while
trying to negotiate a peace, but
we must protect ourselves in case
there is no merger. We can't com-
pletely drop everything.
"If there is no merger we might
be separate, but we will be eual,"
he said, looking toward the col-
lege player draft next ,spring
when the ABA would be bidding
against the NBA for college stars.
That bidding war started in
earnest last year when the t w o
leagues each offered three time
UCLA All American Lew Alcindor
more than $1 million. Alcindor ul-
timately chose the NBA.
" bidding war will cost mil-
lions," Dolph said and he used
as an example the dollar battle
between the American and Na-
tional football leagues before their
"I have always felt the econo-
mic situation will dictate some ac-
commodation between the leagues,
Dolph said.
As for the NBA "the ABA
knows what must be done to re-
open negotiations, Kennedy said.-
"If they are interested I expect
to hear from them."
