Here's Challenge
To Trivia Experts
Tie goal of the University is not to provide answers but to
provoke questions, or so the bureaucratic catalogue writers and PR
men say in their pensive moments.
Well, after four years here, and some 20 on the planet I've
got quite a few bothersome queries which I've decided to toss out

ARY: Lost to the Toronto Maple
Leafs organization one (1) 220
pound defenseman. Name: Tom
For many Michigan hockey fans
it will seem unbelievable, but it
remains a fact that Tom Polonic,
whose honors and awards would
cover anyone's hockey stick, for-
feited his senior year of college
hockey at Michigan for a chance
to work up through the Toronto
farm system.
Polonic's decision was made
completely without the knowledge
of Coach Al Renfrew who had
been relying on the burly defense-
man to be the cornerstone and
building block of Michigan's de-
fense this year. Reflecting on the
loss Renfrew said yesterday, "He
was a fine hockey player, but we
are going to have to get along
without him. The first news I
had of his decision was when I
called his home this fall, and his
mother said that he might go to
the Leaf' training camp."
Polonic Attends Camp
The facts are still sketchy but
they go something like this: a few
weeks ago, Polonic attended the
Toronto training camp and was
offered a five-game tryout with
their farm club in Tulsa. The
Tulsa club is one set up for the
development of young hockey tal-
ent. The team is only allowed to
carry five players over the age'
of 25 on their roster. According
Clancy Dra

to Barry MacDonald, the Tulsa
team is highly respected, and in;
order to make it a player has to
"be a real good pro prospect."
There was never any question
as to Polonic's ability in college
hockey from the very first time he
stepped on the Coliseum ice two
years ago. That was one of Mich-
igan's big hockey years with Po-
Ionic and Roger Galipeau on de-
fense, Gordie Wilkie, Gary But-
ler, and Jack Cole on offense,
and Bob Gray in the nets, the
Wolverines marched all the way
to the NCAA championship. Along
the way they won the WCHA, Big
Ten, and Press Trophy titles.
That season Polonic was voted
to the WCHA All-Star team, the
NCAA All-tournament team, and
the All-America squad for the
western part of the country.
The Toronto defenseman was
also sixth in conference scoring
which was slightly unbelievable
for a defenseman. He was the
only defenseman in the top 15
scorers that year.
Last year the graduation losses
were heavy and Coach Renfrew
had to forego some of the wide-
open play that had made Michi-
gan famous the year before and
stress the fundamentals of hock-
ey to his young team. As a result,
the defenseman had to remain
on the blueline to protect the goal-
ie a lot more than the year be-
fore which cut into Polonic's scor-
ing; however, he did tally three
cws Praise

goals and eight assists which was
second best among league defense-
Captain Martin Gone
Among the other names that
will be missing from last year's
fifth-place team in the WCHA
will be Dave Newton, Wilfred
Martin, captain, Pierre Dechaine,
Alex Hood, and Marty Read. This
group served as the core of Mich-
igan's team last year, and will
have to be replaced by juniors
who picked up a year's experience
last season, four of last year's
regulars and a few newcomers.
Renfrew is shooting for three
forward lines this year as he has
in the past.
Wakabayashi Injured
The work of the offensive lines
has been hampered somewhat
since Michigan's All-America cap-
tain and center, Mel Wakabaya-
shi, will be out of action for an-
other few days with strained liga-
ments in his knee. The injury is
not regarded as serious and the
"Mighty Mite" is expected to be
back on the ice soon.
Trying out for the other two
center spots are Bob Baird, who
is filling in on the first line for
the injured Wakabayashi; Bruce
Koviak, Bob Boysen, and Ron Ul-
lyot. Both Koviak and Ullyot are
Herman in Nets
In the nets a sophomore, Har-
old Herman, is making last year's
starter, Greg Page, "really work
to keep his job," according to Ren-
frew. Herman's work shows a "lot
of potential" and thus Renfrew
regards the goalie spot as a little
more solid and consistent than last
season when Page faced the al-
most impossible job of filling in
for Bob Gray after being out of
competitive hockey for a full year.
"What this team lacks in ex-
perience," said Renfrew yesterday,
"they make up for in spirit and
enthusiasm and a lot of times
that will make up for some other
deficiencies. 'I think that the
league will be rough, but we have
the potential to go somewhere."

Wolverine end Jack Clancy was
among a trio of .receivers that
moved to the' front and center as
prime Midwest All-America foot-
ball candidates this week.
The latest report of the Asso-
ciated Press screening board heap-
ed praise on Clancy, wingman
Aaron Brown of Minnesota, and
Bo Batchelder of Illinois.
Clancy's four pass catches for
104 yards in Michigan's 50-14 rout
of Wisconsin gave him a total of
34 for a season record at a school
which produced such legendary
receivers as Bennie Oosterbaan,
Ron Kramer, John Henderson and
Lowell Perry.
Mack Also Praised
Board member Bob Pille of the
Detroit Free Press, while laud-
ing split end Clancy, converted
from halfback in September, also
tabbed Michigan's Tom Mack the
equal to any offensive tackle in
the country.
Others who remained high on

included Illini fullback Jim Gra-
bowski, pressing his quest for the
