Its Winter Weekend in Hough-

The activities of t h e festive
weekend usually include a double;
drubbing of the Huskie icers'
weekend foes.
At Michigan Tech it is the icers
not the gridders who are the pride
of the campus sports enthusiasts
and they seldom fail to accom-
f modate the boistrous student body
with a pair of victories on this'
most festive odcasion.
This weekend the Huskies' op-
position happens to be Michigan,
who in recent years have b e e n

of being the strongest collegiate

Last season the Wolverines were
home to defend a ten game win
streak when they met the Huskies
who were also in the thick of the
championship race. Then the
Huskies'did what few teams have
been able to do and swept the
series on Coleseum ice, knocking
Michigan out of the race for the
top spot in the WCHA.
This season the Wolverines go
into the contest free of the pres-
sure of being a first place conten-
der, with only third place at
The biggest incentive for the
Wolverines tonight and tomor-
row night may be to play spoiler
and knock Tech out of the race
for first place.
Tech is presently 7-4-1 and in
tiird place behind North Dakota
ahd Denver. A split with Michi-
gan would put the Huskies on the
verge of elimination and a iMch-
igan sweep, however unlikely
would make it "wait for the play-
offs" as it already is for the Wol-
A Wosverine sweep would also
shoot Michigan right past Tech
into third place. But Wolverine
mentor Al Renfrew wasn't over-
ly optimistic about the chances of
such a' sweep, noting, "it's tough
to talk about a sweep in Hough-
ton, Tech is rough any time but
they are especially murderous on
! home ice,"
fNevertheless, the Wolverines are
coming off of what was probably
their finest performance of t h e
season, last Saturday's 5-0 white-
washing of Minnesota, and Ren-
frew is hoping that the Wolver-
ines are finally untracked.
Indeed not only was the game
encouraging for the defense and
weary netminder Jim Keough,
who registered their first shut-
out of the season, but the series
also had some very encouraging
aspects for the offense. In last
week's series the Wolverine scor-
ing attack was more balanced
than in any series this season.
The eight goals tallied by Wol-
verines were countered by seven
different players. Only Doug Glen-
denning, a new name in the scor-
ing column, tallied twice. With
Glendenning, Brian Slack, and
Barney Pashak coming on in the

Teammate George Byers is also
a defending champion in the 70-
yard low hurdles, and has a
chance to break his record of
:07.7. KU's Karl Saib could de-
molish the shfot put mark of 60'-
11 4", having put the shot 63'-
9" just last Saturday.
The Jayhawk's Stan Whitley is
another possible record-breaker in
the long jump, with a 25'-4%2"
mark already this season, well
ahead of the Relays standard of
24'-29 2".
And still another Kansan, Ken
Gaines, could set an impressive
{mark in the triple jump with his
ability' to surpass 50 feet.
Kansas does not have all the
potential record-breakers. Indiana
sophomore, Gary Haupert, is a
good bet to erase the record of 6-9
in the- high jump. He has already
cleared 7-01.
The 60-yard dash will probably
be the feature event of the meet.
Michigan State . freshman, Herb
Washington, has been unbeatable
in the distance so far this season.
He has twice equaled the Jenison
Field House mark of :06.1.
But he will have some tough
competition this week from In-
diana sophomores Larry High-
baugh and Mike Goodrich, West-
ern Michigan's Tom Randolph,
Eastern's Gene Thomas, Michigan
freshman, Gene Brown, and de-
fending champion and record-
holder Bill Hurd of Notre Dame.
Randolph and Hurd also could
smash the record of :304 in the
