they play it good.

Michigan Tech has jumped off
to an early lead in the WCHA
race, with an undefeated team so
far. Last year's WCHA and NCAA
champs took two games from new-
comner Minnesota Duluth in league
action, and have one non-confer-
ence victory. North Dakota, last
year's WCHA regular season
champs, have also beaten Min-
nesota Duluth, by a 5-4 score.

played five conference games',
winning three and dropping two.

We filed into the choking yellow schoolbus that Benny. who owned
a local scrap yard, had been coveting for years.
"Hit for twenty, Davey," catcalled Davey's kid brother who en-
joyed rubbing it in. Davey was fifteenth man on a fifteen man
Like all buses it was built for dwarfs, skinny dwarfs at that. The
broomstick boned guys scrunched up into the prenatal position for
the ride out to the far north suburbs.
"Don't forget Coach," yelled one of the fellas as the bus driver
started edging his animal away from the school. And, suddenly Coach
comes bolting out of the gym door, bag of oranges in one hand, pre-
game pep talk in the other, and left foot in mouth.
-It was one of those Chicago days that non-natives think are the

Well, about halfway there the defrost mechanism failed, along
with the heat. Frozen ballplayers you can tolerate but clouded win-
dows are something else. And already our warmup time was downi
to a scant ten minutes, so stopping was out of the question.
Coach came to the rescue, unsurped the towels we were sup-
posed to use after the game and began stroking the windshield by
hooking his arm through the side window. Eight towels- and one mile
later he gave up this method. Coach then stated he was going to get
us through if he had to hang on the windshield himself,
But then Sidlney Osborne saved the day. Sid was the team dude
and the only kid on the bus who shaved more than once a week.
He ripped out his aristocratic bottle of after shave lotion and
offered it to Coach. The alcohol iin the lotion melted the window fog
like hydrochloric acid working on a stomach ]ining so we made North
Shore in time. Sidney tried using his shave lotion as bargaining
leverage for a starting job, but Coach wouldn't hear of it.
,We hurried onto the court shivering, like adolescent flamings
