cers hope
to conquer
old nemesis
By BILL DINNER
A combination of last Friday's
offensive antics, together with
Saturday's fine display of defen-
sive agility, need be in order if
the Michigan hockey team wishes
to improve on its WCHA record.
This weekend's two-game series
with old nemesis Michigan Tech
begins at 8 p.m. tonight at th'e
Coliseum; the second game, same
time on Saturday.
The Wolverines, who gained
their first sweep of the season,
wning Colorado College twice
st week, have not won a pair
from the Huskies since 1966 and
Michigan has lost its' last seven
outings.
Michigan Tech is 8-4-1 overall
and 3-1-1 in the WCHA, with all
five WCHA games wading through
ertime. Last weekend Tech
aded 3-2 tallies with Wisconsin,
and squeaked by Colorado College
4-3 Tuesday.
The Wolverines, who stand 9-6
overall and 5-3 in the WCHA,
have 14 games remaining. Nine
are on the road for both teams,
u the Huskies have 17 games
Michigan needs the weekend
series'if it hopes to stay in con-
tention in the WCHA.
"Naturally we were very pleased
to split the series with Wisconsin
after the loss Friday," commented
uskie head coach John MacIn-
nes. "Wisconsin's strong fore-i
checking hampered our offense
and their penalty killers did an
excellent Job."
Tech's goaltender, Gorden Mc-
Rae, had two excelent games
a 10 on g with freshman centerj
ayne Pushie and juriior Ken
Tucker Who turned in a fine
series.
Ron -,Amadio, a senior from
Sault Ste. Marie, turned in what
MacInnes called, "the best per-
formance of his career," against
Wisconsin.
4Macinnes, however, is still
shuffling the -players, "We played
a much stronger series defensively
than we have been, and our prob-
lems have not been on defense."
Foreseen is a major overhaul of
the. forward ,lines, with Lyle Mof-
fatt moving to center between
ushie and Al McLeod:
" MacInnes considers the Wolver-
ines. ,one of the better teams,
"We'll have our hands full there,
without question. They're a very
offensive minded club: and we'll
have to be sharp."
Last weekend the Wolverines
ored ya total of '14 goals while
"ving 7 scored against them.
Merle Falk led them with three
for the series, while Barney Pas-
hak, captain Dave Perrin, and
Brian Slack each managed to put
the red light on twice.
Orr estal
By The Associated Press
BOSTON- Bobby Orr set a
National Hockey League record
with his 50th and 51st assists of
he season yesterday as the Boston
ruins defeated the Los Angeles
Kings 6i-3.

rOrr assisted on the Bruins'.
fourth goal by defenseman Rick
Smith ir the first period to tie
the seasonal assist mark for de-
fensemen set by Pat Stapleton of
hicago last season. His assist on
Phil Espesito's goal in the final
period broke the mark.
Orr, who is 21, and in only. his
fourth NHL season, now holds all
the single season scoring marks
available to a defenseman. He set
the goal scoring record with 21
and the point scoring mark with
.4, both last season.

for

barrage

T ankers view next team
while gaining experience

By TERRI FOUCHEY
Take one swimming team that
would like experience against a
good team, another that has a
week off before the three most
important meets of its season and
that would like to keep on its
toes, find some way of getting the
two to the same pool at the same
time and end up with a meet be-
tween Toronto (the team needing
experience) and Michigan (the
team worrying about its toes).
The two teams meet tonight at
Matt Mann Pool at 7:30. The great
experiment will allow Coach Gus
Stager to test some of his team
to discover who'll be ready for
SMU, Purdue and Princeton next
weekend.
"We'll use both freshmen and
varsity, but since Princeton does-
n't compete with its freshmen we
especially want to find out about
the capabilities of our varsity. So
it won't be an exclusively fresh-
man meet," Stager said.
Stager continued, "Toronto is
using the meet basically to see
how they match up against what
most people consider a good col-

lege team. They don't expect to
beat us and so they'll be experi-
menting a great deal, too."
Individual duels will highlight
the meet. Overall Toronto may not
be much competition, but they
have some fine swimmers who are
expected to give the Wolverines a
battle in certain events. As Stager
views the meet, "It will be an in-
teresting meet and will show some
good swimming."
One of the more interesting
duels will be the grudge match
between Bill Kennedy and To,
ronto's Jim Shaw. Stager consid-
ers Shaw Toronto's best. Ken-
nedy is from London, Ontario, and
has met Shaw, who hails from To-
ronto, several times. However,
Kennedy has never been able to
beat him.
Shaw has two years maturity
and experience over Kennedy but
Stager feels that in this meet he
is ready to beat Shaw for the firstb
time.
In the sprints Toronto will at-
tack with another of their best,
Theo Van Ryn. Van Ryn is the
fastest in Canada in the 50-yard
freestyle and is considered one of
the best competitors on the team.
Stager plans to use the Zann
twins, Greg and Bob, to counter-
attack him.
In the breaststroke, Wolverine
Carl Miller will meet Ross Bal-
lantyne. Miller will also compete
in the individual medley and wile
get a chance to take on Shaw in
that event.
Stager views the 200-yard but-
terfly as a match race for the
team. Freshmen Tim Norlen and
Larry Day can expect competi-
tion from teammates Gary Kin-
kead and Juan Bello. Toronto
doesn't seem to have anyone who'll
put up a serious battle in this
event but their co-captain Terry
Bryan could be the race's dark-
horse.
Stager expects to use distance
freestylers Mike Casey and Dave
Kelley in their events so as to
prepare them for the trio of meets
coming up.
SMU is the meet the whole team
has been working toward since
Dec. 27. However, they have been
looking toward it since last year
when a fired up SMU squad man-

MICHIGAN'S MERLE FALK (12) scored his second goal of the
night when he broke up a pass inside the Wolverine blue line and
raced in all alone for the tally, inroad to a 8-7 victory over
Colorado College last Saturday. The Wolverines will try to im-
prove on their three game winning streak tonight against
Michigan Tech.

JUAN BELLO, one of Michi-
gan's all-around swimmers in

medley. Bello won the event
against Southern Illinois last
week as the Wolverines capsized

an All-American, is the defend-
ing Big Ten champion. In the
1968 ,Olympics he finished
fourth in the individual medley
while competing for Peru.
aged to upset the visiting Wolver-
ines. The tankers are hoping to
repay this southern hospitality.
SMU is the best team in the
southwest and this will be the
toughest meet of the season. The
team is preparing for it with en-
thusiasm. Stager describes this,
"The team would .very much like
to win. We're not peaking or taper-
ing for any one meet, but have
been working gradually for all of
them. We're not doing anything
special because it's SMU. We're
working hard this week and intend
to swim through the Toronto meet
and the three next week."
The team really wants to avenge
last year's loss but there's a hard
task ahead of them. ,SMU has won
70} straight dual meets and is not
looking for an upset in Ann Arbor
next week. Stager thinks the Wol-
verines will be ready especially
since their spirit is already high.
He comments that "About one-
third of the team has been com-
ing back for'special practices at
ten every night."
Casey and Kelley will be tested
tonight because the distance events
are those where the Wolverines
must pick up some points to win.

NEW YORK (I)-National Foot-
ball League club owners failed
once more to come up with a re-
alignment plan for the 1970 sea-
son during a day-long - meeting
yesterday.
The 13 National Conference
owners, closeted at a midtown hotel
with Comissioner Pete Rozelle in
an attempt to resolve the long-
standing dilemma, broke up the
session shortly before 9 p.m., EST.
They will meet again at 9:30 a.m.,]
EST, today at the commissioner's
offices.
Rozelle left the meeting saying
there was no progress to report.
It is the fifth such meeting
since last May, when the American
Conference was agreed upon and
aligned into three divisions of four,
four and five teams.
Rozelle, who has vowed to keep
the owners in New York "until we
have a resolution on this, one way
or another," had been closeted
with them since yesterday's session
began at 1:30 p.m., EST, an aide
said.
The owners are seeking agree-
ment on a three-division set-up to
match that of the new American
Conference for the 1970 season,
when the merged leagues will
operate for the first time from
inder the same roof.
Thus far, however, the owners
have been unable to get together
on a 5-4-4 alignment because of a
host of differences over such con-
siderations as geography, weather,

stadium size, gate potential and
competitive parity, among others.
Until the matter is resolved,
there ,can bie no determination of
the 1970 schedule and a new tele-
vision contract.
Rozelle has indicated he might
step in to effect a settlement, al-
though he is not empowered to
make an arbitrary decision.
"I do not have the authority to
move in, but I have the respon-
sibility to see that it's done," he
said after a fruitless .five-hour
meeting Wednesday.

ball Club will hold its annual
organizational meeting Tuesday,
