EAST LANSING - Confusion..
That's the only way to describe
what happened last night.
Beginning with the incompet-
ence of the University charter bus
service, it was a long night.
The bus failed to show up and
the Wolverine hockey team turn-
ed into a 70 mile per hour motor-
cade to East Lansing.
The game itself was even more
confusing, with 29 penalties call-
ed in a/contest that saw Michigan
skate past Michigan State 6-3.
The game was held up in many
finstances when the inconsistent
officiating stopped the play. On
three occasions, delay penalties
were called when there were al-
ready two members of the same
team in the penalty box.
This happened twice to the Wol-
verines and once to thesSpartans.
Officials Frenchie LaCost and Red
Wilkie were in constant disagree-
ment throughout the game.
The penalty barrage began when:
the game was only 35 seconds old.
State's Mike DeMarco was sent
off for holding but the Wolverine
power play was ineffective. Michi-
gan's Jerry Lefebvre followed De-
Marco at 4:03 and then f ou r
penalties were called ina scuffle

The Events Building is no more.
In one of their rare shows of y4,
unanimity, the Regents voted yes- f
terday to rename the structa*e

tion, proposed by Regent Robert

along with the Spartans Pat Russo.
Cartier's penalty was delayed un-

As soon as the commotion sub-
sided, Michigan tallied twice in
a span of 50 seconds. Dave Per-
rin took a long pass from Cartier
and, was all alone to beat goalie
Dick Duffett with a hard slap shot
on the stick side.
Bernie Gagnon was guilty of
slashing at 15:49 as the penalty
parade continued. A fight erupted
at 16:57 as Bill Watt drew a
double minor for State and both
Heyliger twins, were penalized for
.Michigan. Again ; the delayed
penalty was in effect and again
there was confusion and delay.
Michigan broke the game open,

bunched two goals together again.

By The Associated Press
LAKELAND, Fla.-Superstar Denny McLain, indefinitely sus-
pended from baseball "for involvement in 1967 bookmaking activities,"
was absent yesterday when the Detroit Tigers opened spring training.
But it was reported the $90,000-a-year pitcher feels he will be re-
instated within a month.
Meanwhile; there were these developments elsewhere:
-A suburban Detroit judge ordered McLain, his wife and three
children evicted from their Michigan home unless $2,400 in back rent
is paid within 20 days.
-It was disclosed in Flint, Mich., that five persons, one of whom
McLain has been accused of associating with in 1967, have been sum-
moned to testify next Wednesday before a Federal Grand Jury in-
vestigating organized crime in Detroit.
-The debt-plagued, righthander remained unavailable at his
home here, while teammates wondered where the 31 games McLain
won in 1968 and the 24 he contributed last year will come from if his
suspension sticks for as long as a year.
In a story by sports writer Jerry Green from New York, the
Detroit News quoted McLain as saying in a tax interview en route
to a Florida-bound plane Thursday night:
"All I can -say is I'm very sorry. I caused a lot of people a lot of
embarrassment-not only my wife, Sharyn, but my father-in-law,
Lou Boudreau, and my mother.
"I've embarrassed baseball to a certain extent. I'm asking the
benefit of the doubt.,I apologize to the commissioner, and I'm sorry
anything like this had to happen ...
"I'm scared from one point of view. My immediate problem is
getting a job. I'm in financial trouble. What am I going to do for
money? I've got a family to take care of.
"Contrary to belief, 99 per cent for my problems stem from
business. I made a lot of lousy investments."
Mctsain was referring to heavy debts and suits filed against him
for nonpayment of bills, despite what he has estimated as a total
income of $200,000 a year from baseball, night clubs, organ concerts, a
freight charter airline, a paint company and other enterprises. Mc-
Lain was quoted by the News as saying he thought Kuhn's suspension
of him wasfair, adding that "I can't see any other alternative for hbn
McLain was suspended indefinitely from baseball Thursday by
Commissioner Bowie Kuhn for "involvement in 1967 bookmaking
activities and his associations at that time."
Commissioner Kuhn said McLain's suspension would remain
indefinite until he completes his investigation of allegations against
McLain. McLain said he feels this could happen within two days or a
"It will last until he's satisfied with our facts and the informa-
tion that we gave him," said McLain. "I hope it's resolved as soon as
Kuhn also said his action was "based substantially on certain
admission made candidly to me by Mr. McLain and not on allegations
contained in a recent magazine article, many of which I believe to be
Earlier Kuhn had said McLain's being called upon the carpet
did not "involve "the paying outcome of baseball games."

Hoping to stay in the winning
grove affter an impressive 78-60
win over Toledo, Michigan's bas-
ketball team battles Minnesota to-
day in a game that Coach Johnny
Orr promises will be tough.
The Gophers will be gunning for
a very big win to move them
right up into competition for the
second spot in the Big Ten. They
are currently tied with Ohio State
in third but have the chance to
zip past the faltering Purdue Boil-
ermakers into second place.
Michigan's weak defense, the
worst in the Big Ten, will be hard
pressed to cover the dynamite
guard combination of Ollie Shan-
non and Eric Hill, whom Coach
Orr calls "the best one-two scor-
ing punch in the Big Ten."
The rebounding of Gopher cen-
ter Larry Mikan - son of former
pro and college great George Mi-
kan - will also aid the Minne-
sota cause. Mikan is currently
second in the league in rebounds,
following the Wolverine's Rudy
Tomjanovich who is nearing an
all-time Michigan team record,
Coach Orr sees the main prob-
lem as Minnesota's big front line.
"They out.ebounded Wisconsin,"
he said, "and Wisconsin killed us."
Minnesota ranks first in the
league in rebounds recovered, with
a 54.6 per cent average.
To counter this board strength,
Orr will "put the pressure on"
and hope that the Gophers don't
get two shots on offense.
In addition, Orr hopes t h a t
Tomjanovich will be able to break
the jinx that has plagued him for
the last three years. "Rudy has
In 1938, Crisler was lured to
Michigan where he coached the
Wolverines for 11 years. During
that time he rang up a fantastic
71-16-3 record. It was during his
stay at Michigan that he revolu-
tionized football with his use of a
two platoon system.
In 1948 Crisler succeeded Field-
ing Yost as Athletic Director at
Michigan. Crisler was also Chair-
man of the College Football Rules
Committee and -was instrumental
in the adoption of the two-point
conversion rule. He retired in 1968,
the same year the Events Build-
ing was dedicated.

0 LOS ANGELE-Attempting to shake up their sagging fortunes,
the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League traded six
players yesterday in multiple deals with the Chicago Black Hawks
and Detroit Red Wings.
The Kings swapped defensemen Dale Role and Larry Johnston
and left winger Gary Croteau to Detroit for defensemen Matt Ravlich
an4 Brian Biggons and left wing Gary Monahan.
The Black Hawks, girding for a stretch run at a last playoff
spot in competition with the Red iWngs, obtained all-star defenseman
Bill White as the key to their trade.
Los Angeles sent White, goalie Gerry Desjardins and defenseman
Bryan Campbell to Chicago. They received goalie Denis DeJordy,

"In my opinion this is tampering," Klosterman said, "I feel very

However, Klosterman said he has not lodged a formal com-
plaint and does not eipect any action by commissioner Pete Rozella
of the National Football League.
