By MIKE GILLMAN
Wolverine coach, Al Renfrew,
will take his hockey team to
Houghton, Michigan, tonight for
a weeken1d twin bill.
The Michigan squad will be in
hopes that Michigan Tech will
prove to be as hospitable hosts as
the Wolverines showed themselves
to be in the first two meetings of
these clubs this year. .
The Huskies of John Maclnnes
traveled to Ann Arbor in early
January and took home two big
wins for their weekend's work.
Tech's 3-2 and 10-2 victories over
Michigan established Maclnnes'
team as leading contenders for
one of the two Midwest NCAA
playoff berths.
Losing Streak
For Michigan meanwhile, the
series showed the dark days that
were to come as the Wolverines
have won only one of the .eight
games played since that weekend.
Both teams will be looking to
get back on the win trail. Michi-
gan..droppedtwo toMinnesota last
week and Tech tied one and lost
one in a series with Colorado Col-'
.lege.
The victory-starved Wolverines;
have an extra incentive to take
at least one of the games as cap-
tain Bobbie Watt will be remem,-
bering the in jury he suffered in
the first Tech series. Coach Ren-
frew feels that this will be Watt's
first weekend at full strength
since the accident.
Tech Needs Two
Tech has to take both games in
the series to stay in contention for
the Troy, N.Y. playoffs. Even one

win by Michigan over their north-
ern hosts could permit Minnesota
or the newly-eligible Denver squad.
to take the second spot. On the
basis of records thus far, Michigan
State appears a safe bet for one
of the places.
A former teammate of Renfrew
here at Michigan, Maclnnes has
had a wealth of material to work
with this season. One player in
particular the Huskies are boost-
ing for All-American honors is
goalie George Cuculick. The junior
net-minder has been a big factor
in Tech's rise from the cellar of
last year's WIHL to this year's
playoff contender.
Cuculick and three strong lines
will be a troublesome combination
.as Michigan takes to the road to-
night.
Small Squad
Renfrew will again, be bringing
a small squad onto the ice in
comparison to the 17 pucksters
that Tech will dress. As Renfrew
noted in practice early in' the
week, "It's awful to contemplate,
but it looks like we'll have to fin-
ish the season with only two
lines.",

By BUZ STEINBERG
Swim coach Gus Stager and his
band of mariners will battle Mich-
igan State in a Conference meet
tonight at East Lansing.
The Wolverines, who have re-
mained undefeated in more than
two years, are hoping to chalk up
another victory. Stager remarked,
"We'll attempt, to better Yale's
consecutive win record of 176, but
there is still a long way to go."
Three Strong Opponents
Tonight may prove to be a
stumbling block, for the aquamen
will face three of the country's top
swimmers-Don Patterson, Frank
Modine, and Bill Steuart.
Patterson holds the NCAA rec-
ord in the 100-yd. freestyle. His
top time of 49:4 puts him slightly
ahead of Michigan's Frank Le-
gaki. There is a possibility that

either one might push the other
hard enough to set a new record.
Modine is the defending NCAA
champ in the 100-yd. and 200-yd.
breaststroke. His amazing times of
1:05.0 and 2:23.4 are- a few tenths
of a second better than Wolverine
Cy Hopkins who's best 'in the 200-
yd. is 2:23.7. The odds are favor-
able for a new record to be set in
ione of these events.
Another Spartan, Steuart, junior
distance star from South Africa,
will be facing Dick Hanley, Amer-
ican and world record holder of
the 220 (2:01.5).
This race is another toss up and
as Stager put it, "Hanley has the
speed and Steuart, the condition-
ing."
Since the caliber of the evening's
competition is high, an interesting
meet is in store; and hopefully,
another victory.

BIG GUN-Michigan's leading scorer, John Hutton, has recovered
from last week's injury and will see action in the weekend series
at Michigan Tech.

By BUZ STEINBERG
John Hutton, muscular 185-lb.
puck chaser, has proven himself
"worth his weight" since taking
over the top team scoring position.
In previous years on the ice,
Hutton had played at the wings.
He remained at that position until
the Wolverine coach, Al Renfrew,
decided to move him to the center
ice.
Since the move was made, mir-
acles have happened.
Hutton, who had been a third

stringer in his sophomore year,
and throughout most of his junior
year, has definitely gained new
poise. As a result, he has become
leading team scorer with seven
goals and twenty-three assists for
a total of thirty points.
Renfrew commented, "Hutton
has come a long way in the two
years I have coached. He is one of
the most improved players and can
handle himself well on the ice.
"He's a good shot, but he's even
better in getting the puck to his
wings."
Although attributing his success
to his new position, Hutton said,
"Though I happen to be high point
man at present, I feel that I am
not as strong as at the beginning

of the season. Our lack of depth
has caused extra strain on all of
us."
Hutton, who has never taken his
share of shots at the nets admitted,
"I, don't have as much confidence
in my shooting ability as I do in
others'. Personally, I would rather
set up a play for my teammates
than take the shot myself."
Last week in the Minnesota
contest, Hutton was injured when
one of the referees' skates punc-
tured his right foot. This required
three stitches. The swelling has
now receded enough that he is able
to put on a skate.
He has responded well to treat-
ment and should be ready to skate
against Michigan Tech tonight.

Burton Drops to Second in Conference
Scoring; Still Holds Lead in Rebounds

By CLIFF MARKS
M. C. Burton continues to lead
Michigan's fourth-place cagers in
their attempt to finish in the first
division of this year's Big Ten
race.'
Big Ten basketball statistics re-
veal that M. C. is still the rebound
leader with 17.3 per game as com-
pared to 16.9 per game for Michi-
gan State's John Green. However,
in their head to head battle last
Saturday, Green outrebounded
Burton 21 to 13.
Lost Lead
That game did cost M. C. his
scoring leadership as he could only
manage 11 points. He now holds
down 'second behind . Minnesota's
Ron Johnson who has an average
of 23..3 points to 22.4 for the Wol-
verine star. M. C.'s phenomenal
.805 free throw percentage has
helped to keep him near the top,
although Roger Taylor of Illinois
is the leader in this department
with a mark of .882.
George Lee and John Tidwell,
two other Michigan stalwarts, are
tenth and fifteenth in the league
scoring race with averages of 19.1
and 16.4 respectively. Terry Miller,
the fourth member of the Wolver-
ines with an average better than 10
points per game, is in twenty-
fourth place.
Weak from Floor
As a team, Michigan is tied for
first with Ohio State in free throw
shooting with a percentage of .699.
.However, the Wolverines are' weak
from the floor as their field goal
mark of .371, ninth in the league,
shows. This shooting lack also is
evidenced in the scoring race as
Burton, Lee, and Tidwell have the
worst field-goal percentages of the
top 20 scorers. Another interesting
note on scoring is that the Wol-

verines have outscored the Big Ten
opponents by only one point in
nine games, 743-742.
State Dominates
Looking at the Big Ten race
from a statistical viewpoint, Mich-
igan State's dominance is no sur-
prise. The well-balanced Spartans
lead the league in only one depart-
ment, rebounds, but are second in
scoring behind Illinois, fourth, in
defense with Minnesota on top,
second to Wisconsin in drawing
fouls, and have his exactly 40 per
cent of their field goal attempts.
Purdue leads with a mark of 42.5
per cent.
This balance, along with the
presence of "Jumping Johnny
Green," will make the Spartans
tough to beat from here on in.
As far as Michigan's first divi-
sion hopes, they rest mainly on
M. C. Burton's ability, which could
use an assist from improved fie'ld
goal shooting and better defensive
play on the part of the Wolverines.

Another factor that could give
coach Bill Perigo's team a boost
in the Conference race is the fact
that the Wolverines have begun to
show some depth. Newcomers Rich
Donley and Gary Kane have
shown themselves able to step
into th breach in the event of
a loss of one of the starters by
injury or via the foul route.
These two could make a differ-
ence before the year is out.
