In the less distant future, he
looks to the Big Ten and NCAA
indoor championships with high
hopes for Michigan thinclads. In
the Big Ten he looks for the stern-
est competition to come from de-
fending camps Wisconsin, which
always fields a tough team be-
cause they offer so many scholar-
ships, and Indiana. However, in
considering the talent of his own
teammates, like miler Rick Stor-
rey, long jumper Ira Russell, speedI
merchant Gene Brown, and triple
jumper Warren Bechard, he dis-
played his supreme, if understated,
confidence in them when he said
that "we'll be right in there."
AS TO the NCAA's he feels the
Wolverines have the ability to put
on an excellent showing, especially
considering the fact that the
championships will be held before
a partisan Michigan crowd in De-
troit's Cobo Arena.
In further discussion of track
controversy, Armstrong revealed'
some more of what might be term-

cerning the battle being waged by
the NCAA against the Amateur
Athletic Union, most recently
manifest in the suspension of
John Carlos and the San Jose
State track team from NCAA com-
petition for participation in an
AAU sanctioned track meet, he ad-
mitted that "administrators get
involved a little too often. If
there's a good meet, a team should
be allowed to participate in it."
However, in reference to Carlos
and other black militant athletes,
whose actions in the '68 Olympic'
games and elsewhere have caused

has not encountered such pressing
racial problems in athletics, con-
tends that the field of sports is
not a place for politics. In the fu-
ture he sees perhaps only a few
minor reoccurances of such mani-
festations of racial politics.
AS FAR as NCAA policy changes
go, he regards rather incredulously
those freshman trackmen com-
peting under the newly revised
code in varsity competition. He
feels it is mentally a terrific strain
on them, but that if they feel they
can handle it, then it's great, es-
pecially for the team. Personally,
he is grateful to have had his
freshman year to prepare himself
mentally and physically for var-
sity trials. On the whole, how-
ever, he advocates no major or
imminently forthcoming revamp-
ing of track rules.

By RANDY PHILLIPS
With 101 shots on Michigan's
goal in last weekend's series split
with Wisconsin, one might think
that the Wolverine's defense had
been left back in Ann Arbor. But
Michigan coach Al Renfrew sees
the 4-2 loss Friday and the 4-3
victory Saturday in another light.
RENFREW ATTRIBUTES the
nearly 2-1 advantage for the Bad-
gers in shots on target, not as an
indication of poor defense on the
part of the Wolverines, but as a
distinct difference in offensive
styles of play. "Every time they
get over the blue line they shoot-...
We try to set up plays." He also
mentioned that Wisconsin's abil-'
ity to "forecheck like crazy" could
also account for Michigan's low
scoring and low number of shots.
DESPITE THE great apparent!
inequality in statistics, both games
were quite close. In Friday's con-
test a scoreless first period gave
way to three goals in the second
stanza as the Badgers built up
a 2-1 lead. Michigan goalie, Karl
Bagnell, had to ward off 20 shots
in the fast moving period.
As the third 20 minutes began!
it looked as though the Wolverine
Icers may stage a comeback as
Dave Perrin broke up a Badger
offensive thrust and raced down

the ice to score an unassisted goal'
with only 46 seconds gone in the
period. But Wisconsin went on to
score twice more to wrap up the
first meeting and run the Wol-
verine's losing streak to 6 games.
Saturday's game began some-
what more spirited. for Wisconsin
as they moved out to a 2-1 margin
while Michigan could only muster
four shots on goal in the first
period. The second period saw the
Wolverine'sknot the game at 2-2
on a goal by Barney Pashak.
MICHIGAN took the lead 13
seconds into the final period with
Perrin's goal on a feed from Punch
Cartier. Just 24 seconds later the
Badgers tied it up again on a re-
WCHA Standingsx

bound shot by Jim Young. The
winning goal that brought Mich-
igan out of its 6 game slump came
at 18:25 of the third period as
Jerry Lefebvre's shot from the
point deflected off a Badger de-
fenseman and faked out the Wis-
consin goalie. Michigan goalie
Doug Hastings made 23 saves to
thwart the Badger attack in the
last 20 minutes of play.
MICHIGAN played exceptional-
ly well in the last two periods
of both games, but in Friday's
contest a couple of shots hit the
post to kill Wolverine scoring ef-
forts. According to Renfrew, Mich-
igan skated hard and played well
enough to win both games, but ef-
fective back checking by the Bad-
gers made the series one which
could have been 9, sweep either
way.
MICHIGAN made one switch
over the weekend by placing form-
er defenseman, Tom Marra; at
wing. The reason for the switch
given by Renfrew was that Jerry
Lefebvre was playing well at de-
fense and the Michigan coach
wanted to utilize all of his best
players. In addition, Marra, is
tough in the corners and would
help out the front line. The switch
aparently worked out fine as Ren-
frew plans to continue using
Mara at wing.
