Michigan's hockey team will at-
tempt to get back on the winning
trail tonight when it faces off
against the Gophers of Minnesota
in the first of a two-game week-
end series at 8 p.m. in the Mich-
igan Coliseum.

lowered their season record to
5-8-1, the icers clash with a strong
Gopher squad' which boasts a
9-6-1 record including a win and
a tie in four contests against the
powerful Spartans.
Top Trio
Described as a "good, fast team"
by Michigan coach Al Renfrew,
the Gopher scoring punch is cen-
tered around the line of Gerry
Melnychuk, Murray Williams and
Myron Grafstrom - a trio that
includes three of the top four
Minnesota scorers.
The Wolverines, who travel up
to Minneapolis in two weeks for
a return series, split a four-game
encounter last year when the
teams split two similar twin bills.
In order to bolster the Wolver-
ine lineup, Coach Renfrew has
done a little bit of juggling which
will give the icers a third line for
the first time this season.
The principal change is the
shift of Mateka, normally a de-
fenseman, to the center position
to combine with Ross Childs and
Don Gourley who will pair at the
forward slots.
Stronger Unit
Renfrew commented, "Thisj
threesome playing together regu-
larly as a unit should give us a
stronger third combination thanI
we have had in the past when we
alternated centers Bob White and
John Hutton between Childs and
Mateka's shift will force Ren-
frew to alternate Captain Bobbie
Watt, Barrie Hayton and Bernie
"Butch" Nielsen at the two de-
fense positions.
An interesting sidelight on the
series is that the Wolverines, who
have only two Americans on the
squad - Gary Mattson from Sault
St. Marie and Nielsen who comes
from Minneapolis, will be meeting
a team which has only two Cana-
dians on it. The Gophers from
north of the 49th parallel are
Melnychuk and Williamson, their
two leading scorers.

In their busiest weekend of the
year, Michigan's undefeated gym-
nasts face two other squads who
also fall in the unbeaten category
in addition to a weak Conference
All three meets-against Navy
Pier (University of Illinois at Chi-
cago), Wisconsin and Michigan
State-are on the road.
Spotless Records
Both Navy Pier and the Spar-
tans boast spotless records, 4-0 for
the former and 5-0 for the latter.
The Wolverines have a 3-0 mark,
with wins overd Iowa, Minnesota
and Southern Illinois.
Michigan meets the ' Chicago
Illini today at 4 p.m., travels, to
Madison, Wis., for a 2p.m. Satur-
day contest against the Badgers,
and then returns home before hit-
ting the trail again Monday night,
this time to East Lansing for an
8 o'clock engagement.
"Navy Pier could do a good job
of forcing the men to peak per-
formances," said Coach Newt
The Chicago school includes a
victory over Wisconsin in its un-
marred record.
"It has two fine all-around per-
formers in Chuck Simms and John
Schmeissing, who could give us. a
lot of trouble," Loken said.
"One thing in our favor is the
lack of injuries. Everyone is in
good shape, and we didn't lose

anyone through ineligiblities," he
added with a broad grin.
The between-semesters layoff
usually has the tendency of hurt-
ing most athletic teams. But Loken
feels that the gymnasts, who have
been competitively inactive since
Jan. 17, have probably been helped
more than harmed.
"Everyone has been busy working
on new routines and perfecting
their old ones," said Loken. "Our
tumblers, Jimmy Brown and Bill
Skinner, for example, have been
doing complicated maneuvers like
double-twisting back flips. They
should give any one in the Big Ten
a run for his money."
"And our apparatus men, Wolf
Dozauer, Nino.Marion, Richard
Monpetit and Al Stahl haven't
been idle either," he continued.
Loken fears very little from the
Badgers in the second weekend
meet. They are 2-3 for the dual
meet season.
Dale Karls and Jim Scherz rank
as top Wisconsin performers in
all-around competition.
Of greatest importance, on the
other hand, will be the MSU en-
counter. The Spartans are defend-
ing NCAA co-titlists along with

Burton Takes Over BigTen Scoring Lead;
Holds First Place in Reboundmg' Department


Michigan's high schoring for-
ward M.C. Burton has raced back
into the Big Ten point-making
On the strength of a 31-point
splurge against Indiana here last



Saturday, the lanky senior
brought his average up to 24.1,
and took over the top spot from
Ron Johnson of Minnesota.,
With the Wolverines' lack of
depth this year, Burton and
George Lee have had to carry the
weight of the front-line offense.
Burton's efforts - coupled with
the 17.2 average held by Lee
(placing him 11th in the league -
have been the big factor in keep-
ing the Michigan team in conten-
tion for the title.
Rebound Leader
Burton also leads the league in
another department - rebounds.:

His 17-per-game average gives
him a scant lead over MSU's
Johnny Green at 16 2/3.
Illinois, although resting on
ninth place in the standings, con-
tinues to hold the team scoring
lead with an average of 85.0
points per game. Michigan State,
the Wolverines' opponent this
Saturday, has moved up into sec-
ond place with an average of 83.5.
The first place Spartans have
shown a balanced attack, leading
in team rebounds, and standing
third in shooting percentage from
the floor, in addition to the sec-
ond place in scoring.
Poor Shooters
The Wolverines are faring quite
well in the conference race com-
pared with their floor accuracy.
Their .366 average puts them
ninth in the league, topping the
last place Wisconsin Badgers

400-yd. medley relay. In their last
meet against Indiana, Michigan
swam this event in 3:46.4, only
four-tenths of a second over theJ
American record.
John Smith, Tony Tashnick, Cy
Hopkins, and Frank Legacki-the
cream, of the varsity squad-will
be assigned the task. This will be'
the first time these four have been3
paired to attempt this feat.
Attempt Other Records
Also, Coach Gus Stager would1
like to see some of his other 'best'
men attempt to shatter the 400-
yd. freestyle time. With Legacki,
Dick Hanley, Carl Woolley, and a
yet unnamed sophomore, a new
record could be established.
It is significant to note that
Iowa has won the 400-yd. free-
style event in all of its Big Ten'
meets this year, once breaking
the SUI mark of 3:27.9 by seven-
tenths of a second at Michigan'
Iowa's conference record to date
is two wins and two losses. After
beating Wisconsin in its opener,'
58-47, Iowa lost to Michigan
State, 63-42, and Indiana, 51-50,'
before rebounding to a victory
over Minnesota last week, 60-41.
The Hawkeye lungers can boast'
of Gary Morris, NCAA champion,
who has already broken many
records this year and has been
the consistent big gun.
Morris Three Firsts
Morris won three firsts against
Indiana, two against Michigan
State, and two against Wisconsin.
In the Michigan State contest he
set two new meet records -
smashing the 50-yd. freestyle by
seven-tenths of a second (:22.3)
and the 100-yd. freestyle by one
and one-tenth second (:50), the
latter bettering the mark held by
MSU's Don Patterson.
Morris, also is a member of
Iowa's 400-yd. freestyle team,
along with fine swimmers Jim

Coles, Bill Claerhout and Jim Da-
Claerhout is another aquaman
for Michigan to watch closely. He
too, has been repeating victories
with his specialty, the 200-yd.
This should not be the only
event that Claerhoutmay com-
pete in for he has proven him-
self a tough competitor in any
race. Probably, thenmost inter-
esting race of the night will be
between Hanley and Claerhout.
Jim Coles is another Hawkeye
who has much talent. His special-
ty is the 220-yd. backstroke, al-
though he swims the 220-yd. free-
style frequently.
Good Divers
In addition to its top swimmers,
Iowa has two of the best divers
competing in the Big Ten. Point-
getter Estell Miller will definitely
appear in competition, whereas
Jake Quick, who has had schol-
astic difficulty, may not be per-
mitted to compete.
Thoug Iowa has a number of
competent men on its squad, it
is evident that there is much
depth lacking. The Wolverines
only weak spot may be Dick Han-
ley who has recently recuperated
from a mild attack of the flu.
On the other hand, the f act
that Michigan does have great
depth should provide the home
team with a big advantage and
probably another victory.

Not as Strong
Although not as strong as last
year, State has retained much of
its power, including Stan Tarshis,
national collegiate champ on the
high bar. Also expected to grab his.
share of points is Cal Girard, who
Loken terms an "excellent all-
around man and of championship
"Since we beat Southern Illinois
by 'exactly the same score as they
did, it'll be a real close meet," said
Loken. "Whichever team hits the
greatest number of routines will
win. It's as simple as that."
ROTC Cagers

Future ensigns take to the bas-
ketball court Saturday when
Michigan's NROTC team plays
host to unit squads from Ohio
Sttae and Louisville in a region-
al tournament.
First game is scheduled for 10
