Ex-Whiz Kid
Gene Vance
Inherits Post
By The Associated Press
CHAMPAIGN - Gene Vance,
43, forx'ner Illinois Whiz Kid of
basketball fame in the 1940s, was
named athletic director of the
university yesterday, effective
April 1.
Vance succeeds Doug Mills, his
former cage coach, in the position.
Mills resigned in November.
Vance, who in the days of the
Whiz Kids was the team's defen-
sive expert, has not been pre-
viously. employed by the univer-
sity's athletic department. He has
been serving as executive director
of the Illinois Alumni Association.
Vance takes on a tough assign-
mentin the light of a probe that
revealed the operation of an il-
legal $21,000 slush fund. The uni-
versity's investigation into finan-
cial aid irregularities resulted in
head football coach Pete Elliott
and head basketball coach Harry,

The Big Teri still is to act on the
matter. Commissioner Bill Reed
said in Chicago yesterday that he
hopes conference action will come
before its business meetings the,
first week of March in Chicago.
The NCAA also must review the
case and pass judgment, but Reed
said he had no inkling when this
will happen. He added that it
may come after Vance officially
is installed in his new post.
"I feel that Illinois athletics
have a bright future despite im-
mediate problems ahead, but that
future will be within the rules,"
said Vance. "If Illinois ever suffers
another experience such as the
present one, we will be through

Last Saturday, 900 enthusiastic

The weekend sweep from Min-3
nesota left the icers with a 5-1t
record in the WCHA and a 13-1-1t
mark overall. Friday's 10-5 mas-t
sacre was highlighted by a four-
goal outburst by Bob Baird. e
The senior forward now leadsr
the team with 18 goals and 197
assists for a total of 37 points.,
He needs only one more pointI
to surpass the 37-point total rolledt
up by graduated All-American Mel
Wakabayashi in the first 11 games
of the season.
The excellent play by all three
lines in the Minesota series raised
speculation that the Wolverines
have completely recovered from
the loss of Wakabayashi. As
Koviak put it, "We have finally
shown everybody that we can get
along without Mel. All the players
are working real hard now, and
where we once relied upon one|
player to pull us together, we are '
now counting more on ourselves "
Koviak centers the line with
forwards Randy Binie and Bob+
Boysen. He feels that "all the
lines are clicking right now, and
as long as we keep winning, the
same combinations will stick to-
gether." Coach Renfrew agrees.
The team has racked up three
wins in four games since the de-
parture of Wakabayashi, and Ko-
viak attributes this to a feeling
of "pride in ourselves.
"If we are 'flat' like we were
against Denver in the Friday nght
game two weeks ago, then we
won't win . . . everybody has to
keep on working all the time.
"There's no overconfidence on
this team . . . we realize that we
are not unbeatable."
Renfrew reflects the cautions
attitude of the players: "The
league is very well-balanced this
year. We are in first place but
it is by no means a comfortable

position. Denver, a team with four
losses, is as good a favorite for
the title as anyone else.'
Renfrew stated that he was
pleased by the performances of
goalies Jim Keough and Harold
Herman against the Gophers.
"Both boys played well and we
will continue to rotate them in
the upcoming series. Each has a
different style of goalt ending, l
which is a good situation."
The two netminders have a
combined goal-against average of
only 3.40 as compared with thel
6.87 scoring pace of their hot-1
shooting teammates.
There is evidence of the win-
ning spirit among the players.
Koviak says that "we really want
to go to Syracuse (sight of theI
1967 NCAA championships) this
year. We know that we can win
the big games, and if we continue
to pull together we may take all
the marbles."
Michigan's host for this week-r
end, Colorado College, has a 4-2
record in the WCHA so far. The
Tigers are tied with Michigan
Tech for third place in the league
behind Michigan and North Dako-
ta (8-2).
Rules Body
Table A ction
Special To The Daily
PHOENIX, Ariz.-Storm clouds
gathered between the coaches andI
rulesmakers at the National Col-
legiate Athletio Association meet-
ing here yesterday.
The NCAA rules committee
changed its mind about accepting
changes recommended by the
coaches at last week's meeting in
Houston, Texas.
It tabled several proposals, in-
* Elimination of the "flex-
shift," which coaches maintain
is designed solely to pull offensive
linemen offsides.
* Elimination of the tackle
eligibility play.
* Disallowing a player to enter
a game without reporting to a
designated official.
A report by a subcommittee stu-
dying the use of electronic scout-
ing devices caused some stir, but
there was no indication what ac-
tion would be taken.
The rulesmakers do plan to
vote on a proposal to allow one
player to confer with his coach
at the sideline during timeouts.
