Harold Herman: Hockey's'Cool' Netminder


There are certain things you
have to accept: David will always
say "good night" to Chet; stay-
pressed pants will wrinkle; and
goalies will have hives. Perfect
predictions-as sure as finals and
tuition payments.

a sophomore he has done a great
job. You know, a good goalie gives
confidence to a team and con-
fidence allows it to take a few
chances. Harold gives this con-!
fidence. He has been the heart ofj

American in the nets, played for
the Blue and led them to an
NCAA championship in 1963-4.
Russian Roulette
"Herm's" motive for spending'
weekends looking down the barrel
of the enemies' sticks is quite
simple-he thrives on it. "I love
being out there," says Herman,
"even though it gets a little nerve-
wracking. On Fridays and Satur-

days I see pucks in my sleep, but
I always wanted to be a goalie."

at least, one goalie who does not
have so much as a nervous twitch.
Harold Herman, Michigan's
sophomore netminder, is the1 1op

Since the fre,-.man earn does

,etivity since 1956. "It's a real'
,ad situation, and it hurts being
out of competition. It's good to
get back in th' groove," sail Her-
man and competition sure agrees
with him. He concedes that col-
lege hockey "is a lot faster. and
a lot better brand" of hockey than
what he has been used to, but'
he seems up to the challenge.
In a league where it is tough
to win away from home. Herman
has been in the nets for three
conference victories-all on the
road. His best game, according toI
Coach Renfrew, was against Den-


urpiising "quickncss and the
ity to make the key save," re-
ulting 'n 52 saves last weekend

Team Show
C rtainly much of the improve-
nent of the puckmen the last few
weeks must be ciedited to Harold
errran, but, according to him, it
ha:: not been a one man show:
"I think we're surprising everyone.
It has been a complete team
effort with everyone giving over
100 per cent. It's our spirit."
"Herm" is reluctant to talk
about the team's future, prefer-
ring to play them one at a time,
but it is obvious that he is gun-
ning to play for another national
championship team.
Even though Michigan Tech is
6-0 in the conference without
having played a home game, and
most of the sportswriters have al-
ready given them the title, with
a guy like Harold Herman who
thinks goalies lead normal lives,
the "M" icers might destroy an-
other forecast.

East turned the 16th annual East-

ciation All-Star game into a
shambles last night as it romped
to a 137-94 victory with a second-
liner-Adrain Smith of the Cin-

Smith, who wasn't selected for
the starting line-up, scored 24
points and won the most valuable
player award by a vote of sports-
writers covering the game.
The West never was ahead and
any faint hopes it had for victory
died when Jerry West of the Los
Angeles Lakers, its principal of-
fensive threat, suffered an eye
injury in the second quarter and
had to leave the game, watched by
13,653 fans.
West was taken to a hospital

Jerry Lucas of Cincinnati and
John Havilcek of the Boston Cel-
tics, former teammates at Ohio
State, combined to shoot the East
into a 4-0 lead at the start of the
game. West and Guy Rodgers of
San Francisco had the West only
two points behind at 6-4, but
from then on, it was no contest.
East Coach Red Auerbach of
the Boston Celtics left his start-
ers in until near the end of the
first quarter and at the first in-
termission the East was coasting
along with a 33-18 lead.
Eddie Miles of the Detroit Pis-
tons, another nonstarter, led the
West in scoring with 17 points.
West got only four points in the
11 minutes of action he saw.

Koufax Wins Award
Sandy Koufax, the sensational
southpaw pitcher who overwhelm-
ed opposing batters while setting
a major league strikeout record,
was the overwhelming choice yes-
terday as the Male Athlete of the
Year for 1965 in the Associated
Press year-end poll.
On a basis of three points for a
first-place vote, two for second
and one for third, Koufax had 778
points. Bill Bradley, Princeton
basketball star, was a distant sec-
ond with 153 points and South
Africa's Gary Player. winner of
the U.S. Open golf title, was third
with 152 points.
Koufax also was named the
outstanding male athlete in 1963.
Koufax struck out 382 batters
last year, topping the mark of 348
established by Cleveland's Bob
Feller in 1946. The Dodger left-
hander won 26 games and lost
eight, and led the National League
in earned run ai rage for the
fourth consecutive year with 2.04.
The top three were followed by
Jimmy Brown, veteran Cleveland
Browns' fullback; Gale Sayers,
sensational rookie halfback of the
Chicago Bears, and Willie Mays of
baseball's San Francisco Giants.

Campus Interviews, Monday and Tuesday, January 24 and 25
The most effective way to evaluate a com-
pany in terms of its potential for dynamic
career growth is to examine its past rec-
ord, its current status, and its prospects
and planning for the future, together with
the professional climate it offers for the
development of your individual capabilities.
Boeing, which in 1966 completes 50 years
of unmatched aircraft innovation and pro-
duction, offers you career opportunities as
diverse as its extensive and varied back-
log. Whether your interests lie in the field
of commercial jet airliners of the future or
in space-flight technology, you can find at
Boeing an opening which combines profes-
sional challenge and long-range stability.
3 The men of Boeing are today pioneering
evolutionary advances in both civilian and
military aircraft, as well as in space pro-
grams of such historic importance as
America's first moon landing. Missiles,
space vehicles, gas turbine engines, trans-
port helicopters, marine vehicles and basic
research are other areas of Boeing activity.
There's a spot where your talents can
mature and grow at Boeing, in research,
design, test, manufacturing or administra-
tion. The company's position as world
leader in jet transportation provides a
measure of the calibre of people with
whom you would work. In addition, Boeing
people work in small groups, where initia-
tive and ability get maximum exposure.
Boeing encourages participation in the
company-paid Graduate Study Program at
f> leading colleges and universities near
company installations.
We're looking forward to meeting engi-
neering, mathematics and science seniors
and graduate students during our visit to
