When the ice begins melting
and official hockey seasons come
to an end, where do hockey play-
ers take their sticks and pucks to
practice and stay in condition?
IF THEY'RE going to college
and still have some time until the
end of the semester they obvious-
ly can't go immediately back to
the spacious open fields of Canada
1where enough room for the game
is provided. Being that there isn't
too much open space around Ann
Arbor the game and its equipment
are of necessity moved into the
less than spacious abodes of the
hockey players.
During one such apartment
game last year the state of Paul
Gamby's timing and coordination
being off (he hadn't played in a
while) and the state of the walls
of most apartments in Ann Arbor
being as 'they are (quite thin)'
Gamsby who was in goal at the
time reached out to stop a shot
and put both the puck and his
stick right through the, wall.

GOING TO college has also
given him the opportunity to test
his culinary talents and the walls
of his roommates' stomachs
(Slack, Merle Falk and Tom Mar-
ra are the lucky guinea pigs).
Gamsby has treated them to fried
chidken (just like the colonel
makes it-he used to work at a
Kentucky Fried Chicken). Of
course he doesn't mention the fact

Fife, newly named Wolverine
basketball captain, could not even
think about baseball until the end
of the hardcourt season. He was
strictly a basketball player.
Now Fife is faced with the job
of catching up with his teammates
who have a month's advantage on
him.
By his own admission, he is
"quite a bit behind."
But Fife, a pitcher turned out-
fielder, is working hard, staying
after practice to strengthen his
arm and' work out flaws in his
hitting.
"My throwing is coming around

day by day," he said. Strengthen-
ing the arm is a slow process and
takes time. Consequently, Fife
said, by the team's opener this
Saturday in Arizona, "my arm
won't be ready."
Improving his hitting is another
matter. Since there are a few flaws
he has to work out, long hard
hours will help.
"I'm a lunger," he said. "Instead
of holding my weight back, I
stride too soon.
"Coach (Moby) Benedict has
showed me what I have to do to
hit the ball. Now it's up to me to
do it right.
"I try to tell myself 'Wait,' and
to throw my weight back, and also
remember to put my hips into my
swing."
The important thing is to re-
gain this timing after being away
from the bat for so long.
Fife compared the problem to
basketball, which he has not prac-
ticed for a week. "If I started
shooting again now," he said, "I'd
miss them all."
Dugan, as Fife is called by his
friends, was a pitcher last year,
but because of a disappointing
season, he is being switched to the
outfield.
The prospect of having to win a
new job adds incentive to the six
foot two right-hander from Clark-
ston.
"I was pretty tired after bas-
ketball, but this year I was going
to be playing a new position, so
I knew I'd have to work. After a
long season a lot of guys want to
rest, but I don't think I can afford
to rest."
Would being named basketball
captain detract from his interest
in baseball? "It was a great honor
to be made captain," he said,."but
baseball means a lot to me."
Fife is looking forward to the
Arizona trip. "That is where I can

work on getting my arm in shape
and my hitting where I want it."
But he is also concerned about
the effect the trip may have on
some of the younger kids on the
team. The team will play Arizona
and Arizona State, two excellent
squads who have had the benefit
of warm weather for practice.
In the past Michigan has been
lucky to win one of the 10 Arizona
games. Fife remembers how dis-
couraging the trip was to him per-
sonally last year.
"The freshmen and sophomores
are real enthusiastic," he said. "I
hope the trip isn't too disappoint-
ing for them."
But Fife is optimistic about the
team's prospects. "Our battery of
(pitcher Jim) Burton and (catcher
Tom) Lunstedt is the best in the
Big Ten. We may surprise a lot
of people."
