By JOE O'NEILL
Yesterday, Ann Arbor was hit
with bitter temperatures and the
full force of a winter gale. This
same cold; wave also swept the
warring tribe of Michigan Tech
Huskies into town for battle with
the Wolverine icemen.
The two-game set is slated for
tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m.
in the Coliseum. It is the only
meeting between the two antag-
onists this year.
The league-leading Huskies
have but one conference loss while
Michigan has three smudges on
its ledger. Thus, the Blue can
step i right back into the title
fight if Tech can be pommeled
The Huskie record shows that
such an accomplishment won't be
easy, but this .is the kind of se-
ries where records don't count. The
hockey will be anything but halcy-
on. The fierce rivalry between
these two fine teams started in
1920. The schools split a series in
that first year ,and have been
hard at each other ever since.
In the past 44 years, Tech and
Michigan have met 117 times,
and the Wolverines hold a com-
fortable 74-37 victory margin.
To add to this rivalry, this se-
ries will feature a meeting be-
tween two former teammates:
Coach Al Renfrew of Michigan
and Coach John MacInnes. of
Michigan Tech. Maclnnes and
Renfrew grew up together in T)-
ronto, Ont., and played in the jun-
ior leagues. They were on the All-
City junior championship team in
1942-43, and the All-Ontario Jun-
ior "B" title winners the next
Renfrew and MacInnes played
one year of varsity hockey, 1945-
46, together at Michigan. Ren-
frew then preceded Maclnnes as
head coach of Michigan Tech.
Renfrew was coach there for four
years, from 1951-52 to 1955-56. In
his last season at Tech, Renfrew
took the Huskies to the NCAA
Tourney but lost out to Michi-
gan 7-5 in the final game.
Maclnnes has been at Michigan
Tech since the 1956-57 season and
boasts an overall 178-90-13 coach-
ing record. In games between Ren-
frew and Maclnnes, Michigan
holds only a slight leaA with 18
wins to 16 for Tech.
Three for Four
Last year, Tech picked up three
wins in four outings with Michi-
gan enroute to a WCHA confer-
ence championship and the NCAA
crown. It was Tech's second title
in four years. The teams split
at Houghton with Tech winning
10-2 and Michigan taking a 6-1
decision the next night. In Ann
Arbor last year, Tech swept the
series, 7-2 and 8-2.
So these two will be going for

CHICAGO-Cazzie Russell will
not be playing professional basket-
ball in his old home town.
In an announcement made yes-
terday by the National Basketball
Association, it was decided that
the new Chicago franchise will
only get the tenth choice in the
first round of the collegiate draft.
Earlier it was assumed that the
new entry, known as the Chiacgo
Bulls, would get the first pick.
