The Ghastly Spectre
Of Creeping Feminism
I'm not the kind of cro magnon creature who thinks that a
woman's only place is in the home. I don't believe for a minute that
a woman should be destined solely for the prosaic domestic life. In
fact I think that in some cases women should be treated as the equals
But this fervent faith in the emancipation of women will not'
deter tge from deploring a malignant trend in collegiate sport. It's
a trend so shocking, pregnant with lurid implications, that I cringe
even thinking about it.
Men, the unfair sex is infiltrating intercollegiate athletics. Inter-,
collegiate sport, once an outpost of snarling virility and hair-on-the-
chest sponteneity, is -no longer the private preserve of men. Rouged,
lipsticked, high-heeled, bleached blonde, football chested Amazons
are sticking their powdered noses and enameled fingernails into
varsity sports. Ain't that some noive?
Certainly these wiseoff broads with the hefty forearms aren't
too common yet, but the precedent has been set. A girl tennis star
plays for Miami (Fla.) and a female aquatic swims for Alabama.
These are the only dames I know who've cracked the barrier, but girls
are like bread mold spores. You let them get started and pretty soon
they've engulfed you in the slimy green.
Now don't get me wrong. Some of my best friends are girls, but
a woman's place is in the laundry, not the locker room. When this
breach of the manly wall becomes a fullscale invasion the lovely myth
of masculine dominance will be deader than Dobie Gillis.
And then where will we be, men. Girls will call us up for dates
and banish us to the clothes dryer when the TV hockey games begin.
Men will baste the Sunday turkey when the babes are turning the
front nine. Van Patrick will switch with Betty Furness.
The Changing Role ..
Men's roles which are foggy now will be solidly second rate then.
How's a man going to feel when a Louise or Rita wins the Most
Valuable Player award in the National Football League.
The insidious spectre of creeping feminism has been sniping at
the masculine flanks too. Sportswriting, traditionally a profession as
manly as a straight razor, has been punctured by women. A cubbette
reporter broke the Gail Cogdill story in Flint, the Wisconsin Cardinal
yielded to a female sports editor, and even the grizzled Daily has been
infiltrated by one Gretchen 'wietmeyer.
And just yesterday I learned of another guerrilla assault by the
female .sports conspiracy. Southern Illinois University, a small college
athletic power, will employ coed batboys (batgirls, batbabes, bat-
handlers, batbeauties, batties?) this spring. The girls will escort the
umpires to their stations, take baseballs to the plate, tote bats. How
dainty. What would Iron Arm McGinnity and Three Fingers Brown say?
How would Bill Klem take to a female escort to the plate? Ty Cobb
will grunt in his grave.
But it's not only caveman tradition and gnawing fear that the
masculine pedestal's being chipped that drives me to this condemna-
tion of encroaching femininity. Men have got enough trouble trying
to stay unemasculated in our unfrontiersy society. White collar jobs
rarely demand much more than a hampster's physical vigor, and
could be handled better by a snappy Jane than a dolorous Joe. If
women go career hunting in a big way, it'll make things tougher for
men. I think life is competitive enough as it is, frankly.
Girls, listen to me. Sew, cook, type, nurse, that's woman's work.
Try out for the choir, join the PTA. .
Please? Pretty please.

Last weekend the Minnesota
hockey team did what Michigan
couldn't. They beat North Dakota
twice "inside" the Nodaks home
igloo. This weekend, Michigan only
has to do what it did before. Beat
the Gophers twice.
When the Maize and Blue had
finished with Minnesota the last
time they met, the Gophers were
wallowing around in seventh place
in the WCHA. Now they are tied
The last time the two teams met
they performed in Williams Arena
where Minnesota has lost five of
their six games. Now the Gophers
are on the road and rolling.

The last time the two teams
met the Gophers' first line missed

The last time the teams met
Michigan was more than just re-
spectful towards the Gophers who
have been traditionally rugged on
their home ice. That hasn't
changed, but the Gopher attitude
toward the Maize and Blue has.
After the two game series early
pairs for the last three weekends,
and if progressions mean anything
they are due to win twice this
Friday and Saturday. The Blue
were ready to eat the proverbial
"raw meat" before the Michigan
Tech series two weeks ago, and the
results indicated that this could
be an excellent steady diet as the
Wolverines dumped the NCAA and
in January, Minnesota Coach John WCHA champs by scores of 3-1
Mariucci said, "Michigan really and 4-2. Last weekend was a dif-j
surprised me. I expected them to
be tough, but not this tough."
The series sweep in Minneapolis
was the first for Michigan Coach
Al Renfrew in all of his years of
coaching in the WCHA, and he
would like nothing better than to
whip Mariucci and Company twice
more for the benefit of the home
Anyone for Geometry?
The Michigan team has seen its
victories and losses coming in
ferent story as Michigan was
never ahead in either game with
Michigan State, and a crumbling
defense allowed the Spartans a
five-goal first period on Friday
night in East Lansing. Both games
were hard-fought contests, and
the Blue seemed to be completely
frustrated as they just couldn't
"put the puck in the net" despite
many good opportunities.
The Michigan-Minnesota hockey
rivalry has been one of the most
bitter and violent in all of college
history. In all, 159 games have
been played and Minnesota holds
an eight game edge in the victor-
ies which they padded last year.
In a dramatic finish they gave the
Wolverines a cement casket and
dropped them out of the playoffs,
when Michigan was fiercely fight-
ing over fourth spot with Michigan
Mariucci is one of the two
WCHA answers to Leo "The Lip."
The other half of that team per-
formed in the Coliseum last week-
end as Michigan State's Amo Bes-
sone kept up a steady verbal bar-
rage on the officials and climaxed
his performance by struggling to
break a headlock held by one of
his own players so that he could
attack a fan' in the stands. Mar-
iucci may not be as active off of
the bench, but you can wager that
when everyone else is silent
"Maroosh" won't be.
Minnesota has improved with
frightening speed over the past
few \weekends as they have run
roughshod over the rest of the
league.sThe Gophers did lose to
Michigan State two weeks ago
after winning the first game in
overtime, but that apparently only
spurred them on to drop rugged
North Dakota twice. Incidentally,
Minnesota beat the Nodaks one
other time this year in the St.
Paul Holiday Classic.
The Gophers key their defense
around veteran netminder John
Lothrop who set a Minnesota rec-
ord last year as he turned away
an amazing total of 869 shots for
the season. With a goalie as cap-
able as Lothrop, Minnesota's de-
fenders can roam inside the of-
fensive zone and their wings can
play a little looser hoping to pick
up a breakaway.
Minnesota has an offense to go
with their netminding that fea-
tures Doug Woog who wound up
third in WCHA individual scoring
last season. Woog is only 5'10" and
165 pounds, which makes him
about an even match for Mel
Wakabayashi, but he makes up
for his diminutive stature with
The line that has been the most
pleasant surprise for "Maroosh"
has been the Lorne Grosso-Gary
Gambucci-Chuck Norby combina-
tion. Grosso is a senior and adds
experience to the trio as the other
two Gophers are sophomore wings
that Mariucci rates as among the
top college sophs he has ever seen
or coached.tWhen this scoring
combo is on the ice the Wolverines
will have to be on their defensive

MICHIGAN'S LEE MARTTILA has a shot kicked out by Michigan State goalie Gaye Cooley in Satur-

weekend against the Gophers of Minnesota who took two games from North Dakota, on the Nodaks
home ice, last weekend. Both Friday and Saturday night's games will begin at 8 p.m. at the Coliseum.
