By MIKE GILLMAN
iother storm cloud broke over
Midwest hockey world this
,as the athletic director of
er University, Tad Wieman,
unced that he would formally
!al Denver's NCAA ineligibility.
ong with this announcement,
articles were published in the
er Post accusing coaches Al
rew of Michigan, Amo Bas-
of Michigan State, and John
usci of Minnesota of boycot-
the Pioneers, thereby making
i unable to gain a playoff
: in ther NCAA tourney at
N.Y., early in March.
Two Years of Bitterness
pical of the two years of
rness that has marked the
tegration, dissolution and at-
ted re-establishment of the
ern International Hockey
-e, this latest blast was not
received by Coach Renfrew.

I-M Scores

Said the hockey mentor, "This
type of action won't help us get a
league. Articles like this are bad
for college hockey as a whole."
He was referring particularly to
a piece by Dick Hilker of the Post
which indicated that this was a
pre-conceived agreement on the
part of the three coaches and
merited an investigation by the
NCAA.
The Post pointed out that the
Denver team possessed an im-
pressive record thus far (16-4-1),
and would have a place in the'
playoffs were itnot for the "boy-
cott."
Obviously annoyed by the arti-
cle, Renfrew at first declined to
comment on the accusations, but
then stated, "Denver has not
proven itself yet. They have played
only five of their games against
members of the old WIHL and
they have won only two of those.
They have lost to Colorado and
twice to North Dakota. Their win-
ning percentage has been built up
by playing small teams like British
Columbia.
Haven't Proven Themselves
"If they won the rest of theirs
games and their percentage was
better than the other teams of
the old league, then I feel they
should be given consideration. But
they haven't proven yet that they
are any better than the other
teams in the region."
Renfrew's alleged part in the
plot, apparently was conceived be-
cause of his being a member of the
selection committee for the Mid-
west. However, the selection com-
mittee appears to be of little real
significance'in the choice of teams
for the Troy meet.
Denver's ineligibility was caused
by its inability to schedule 12
games with three old league mem-
bers. This is the eligibility stipu-
lation laid down by the NCAA rules
committee.

HOUSTON OP)-Joe Brown de-
fended his world's lightweight box-
ing championship last night by
taking a unanimous decision from
Johnny Busso in a rugged 15-
round battle before a crowd of
10,000.
It _was age triumphing over
youth once more and Brown gain-
ing revenge for the only defeat on
his record in two years-Busso's
overweight decision over the
champion at Miami in November.
It was the sixth defense of the
33-yr.-old Brown's title in two
years and it was even more decisive
than the last one-the decision
here over Kenny Lane last July.
Busso, a strong young man who
pressed the fight all the way,
couldn't stay away from that
deadly right.
Busso's nose bled from the third
round on and in the 14th Brown
opened a cut on Busso's cheek. In
the 15th round Busso was fighting
with his left eye almost closed.
The knockdown in the ninth.
came on a hard right counter
punch. It knocked Busso over the1
ropes onto the ring apron. He
climbed back immediately and
took after Brown, indicating he
wasn't badly hurt.

PRACTICING STARTS-For the coming Big Ten track season are Pete Stanger, Conference low
hurdles champion and star sophomore sprinters Tom Robinson and John Gregg. Stanger is Canada's
best in the hurdles while Robinson is a :09.5 sprinter in the 100-yd. dash and Gregg has recorded
a :09.6. Sprints and hurdles are Michigan's power, says Coach Don Canham.
ROBINSON LEADS ASSAULT:
Hurdles, Sprints are M Stronghold

series F discussing Michigan's track
strengths and weaknesses. Today's
article presents the Wolverine sprint
and hurdle performers.)

"We'll dominate the hurdles and
the sprints."
That is track coach Don Can-
ham's prediction for his team in
the Big Ten this year.
The coach has statistics to back
him up-and those little figures
don't lie too much in track.
Robinson Tops
This is especially true when the
numbers are sophomore Tom Ro-
binson's times in the dashes. The
muscular Bahaman has the fol-
lowing dash records already:
1) Several :06.2 clockings in the
60-yd. dash-- compared to last
year's winning time of :06.3 and
the Big Teri record of :06.1;
2) A tie for the world record in
the 75-yd. dash at :07.4;
3) A :09.5 time in the century
in defeat;
4) A world record :21.7 in the
furlong as well as winning the
British Empire Games (:20.9) for
the event;
5) A :30.5 in the 3j0-yd. dash,
a regular indoor event.
Needless to say, that makes the
superb sprinter one of the fore-
most speedsters in the world. He
I-M Notice
I-M Director Earl Riskey an-
nounced yesterday that basket-
ball teams wishing to reserve
Waterman gymnasium courts for
one-hour practice periods on
Saturday afternoons during the
basketball season can do so by
calling the I-M Building, NO
3-4181.
Residence hall basketball
games on Saturday afternoons
will occupy the latter building's
courts.
The first practice periods at
Waterman will start at 1 p.m.
Saturdays. Riskey said open
lockers will be provided, and
that players should bring their
own towels.

is an exceptionally fast starter,
making him a good indoor threat
to Glenn Davis' title in the 60-yd.
dash.
Pre-Med Student
Robinson, a pre-medical student,
also has been scheduled to run
anchor on Michigan's mile relay
team. He has a :49.0 recording in
the quartermile in practice, al-
though he never competed in this
event before this year.-'
"He's a potential world cham-
pion," claims Canham.
It is depth in the dash that is
almost. as encouraging as Robin-
son's first place threat. John Gregg
and Dick Cephas, two other new-
comers to the varsity, finished in
fourth and fifth in a star-filled
field in the 75-yd. dash at Michi-
gan State last weekend.
Gregg, who has clockings of
:09.6 and :21 in the 100 and 220
in high school, has a best time of
:06.3 for the 60-yd. sprint.
Cephas is just a half-step be-
hind Gregg in the 60 and can run
any dash through the 440.
His best contribution may be
in the low hurdles, though. The
Wilmington, Del., newcomer has
consistently beaten conference
outdoor -titlist Pete Stanger, now
a Michigan senior, in this event
and was just a step behind world-
rated Hayes Jones at the MSU
Relays.
Stanger, possibly the best high
hurdler Canham has had, is a
definite challenger to Willie Mays,
Indiana, and Glenn' Davis (if he
runs this event) of Ohio State at
the Big Ten finals.
Meanwhile both are expected to
score lots of points in dual meets.
Stanger set a high sticks record
at the Chicago Holiday Invita-
tional already this year and was
right behind Jones at the MSU
meet for second place.
Dual Meet Depth
Jim Montour, Ron Trowbridge
and Jim Kay -members of two
straight shuttle-hurdle relay vic-
tories-give some depth for dual
meets.
In the 300 and 440, Michigan
has several strong points. Bryan
Gibson, Don Chalfant and Jim

Simpson will probably be con-
fined to the shorter of these, the
coaches have planned, except for
relays.
Tony Seth, a fast-improving
sophomore, can run well in the
440 and will share an anchor in
the regular relay quartet, Canham
said.
Summing up the hurdles and
sprints, Canham said :
"No worries at all."

Con Edison wants men who can grow fast...men who can prove their
ability and move ahead to increasingly important staff and management
jobs.
Con Edison has 800 top management and staff posts. 90% of
the men now holding these positions must be replaced in the
next 15 years almost entirely because of retirements. Over
250 of these vacancies will be filled in the next five years.
Con Edison will spend $800 million in the next five years to
expand and improve-its electric, gas and steam services. The
program includes a 275,000 KW nuclear power plant at
Indian Point in Westchester County.
Our big construction program, together with our management replace-
ment needs, spell truly exceptional opportunities. We have interesting
jobs-and progressiely better ones-as you qualify.
