Special To The Daily
HOUGHTON - It's winter car-f
nival time up here and, besides a'
shortage of girls and hockey fans,
the Huskies found themselves
short of goals as the Michigan
Wolverines bumped them 3-2 last
The shortage of girls stems:
from the fact that males possess
but do not enjoy a 19-to-1 ratio
in their favor.
The shortage of hockey fans,
not really a true characteristic of
Michigan Tech, is a result of a
surprise visit by the fire marshall
last week. Ancient Dee Stadium

of no more than 1450 has put
tickets at a premium and cut
deeply into a major portion of
Winter Carnival festivities.
Fireworks in February
The smaller crowd warmed up
in a hurry after the Wolverines
wiped out a 2-2 tie with a goal at
4:38 of the final period. The win-
ning score was originally credited
to Ron Ullyot, but restored to its
rightful owner, Lee Marttila after
the game.
No assist was officially credited,
but according to Marttila, "Ronnie


(nee 1926) has been packing in
hockey crowds upward from 2100
for years, but the official decree

should get one." Marttila took a
pass from Ullyot, inside the blue
line, shot and collided with Tech
goalie Tony Esposito and they
carried the rebound in.
According to Esposito, "It hit
a Tech defenseman's glove and
went in.",

ahts and insults

The radical.
He looks like a latter day Jesus with blue jeans and horn rimmed
glasses. The rest of the uniform sticks. Flowing hair, warn out san-
dals, and preachings of a new morality.
But there's another kind of radical. He's a sports radical. If he
wears blue jeans, it's because he doesn't want to ruin his trousers
in Yost Field House.
The radical feels he has been mistreated by the University. The
sports radical is mistreated when he finds out the Michigan State
game is sold out. Or at least that's the way it used to be.
The new two dollar rise in student ticket prices might be the
beginning of a new left for the sports radical. And for a middle
class reason-he's going broke.
Some veteran Michigan sports radicals know that five years
ago-back when pot was something you used to cook green beans
in-you could go to every single Michigan football and basketball
game for a grand total of one dollar. In other words, just about
a nickel per game.
Nowadays things are a little different. And not only because
green beans and pot don't mix. It is getting to be very expensive to
see Michigan sports teams compete. The new football ticket increase
didn't help matters either.
In the past, sports radicals have been very tolerant about such
mark ups. They scowl instead of smile when they go to pick up their
But Michigan athletic officials are pretty tolerant themselves.
They will sell the students tickets even if the buyers don't look
grateful. The officials will probably even remain placid when
students begin thumbing their nose at them after the next in-
In fact no matter how much Michigan charges for tickets, the
athletic department will always be willing to sell them to the students.
They are counting on it. Obviously sports radicals will keep going to
see the Wolverines even if they have to take out loans to do it. Per-,
baps the athletic department will even give out a few tenders to
spectors who are especially enthusiastic and extremely poverty
Anyway the rise has arisen and it's all over with. When sports
radicals march down to buy their tickets like they always have, they
will still see regular radicals doing the things that radicals do. And
the sports radicals will be somewhat rueful, fully aware that these
people aren't going to the Friday night hockey game, the Saturday
afternoon basketball game, the Saturday night hockey game, and
hte swimming meet sandwiched. somewhere in the middle.
Regular radicals are rueful too. If they liked sports, they
would urge a protest of some sort. But sports radicals are too
dedicated to sports to waste time with that sort of nonsense.
In some ways this is rather unfortunate. Now it would be al-
most impossible to cancel out the increase. But what about those
increases of the future.
Michigan students have .never put up any kind of resistence to
inflation and the althetic department is making the most of it. Wol-
verine sports are just as business-like as the pros. The big wigs are
willing to charge as high a price as the student body will accept.
And the student body has never indicated that the limit has been
Sports radicals would rather burn their copy of Baseball
Digest than volunteer to miss all of next year's football games.
.But if they could unite and demonstrate even once, the next
ticket increase might be a couple miles down the road instead
of right around the bend in the University Events Building.
One empty Yost Field House or one desolate Coliseum or one
barren Matt Mann Pool might get the point across. Ticket prices
are getting out of hand, and student power is still around.
Important people would never let on that they are afraid of
sports radicals, but you'd be surprised. If every two buck hike meant
a loss of $60,000 instead of that much profit, there wouldn't be many
more increases.
If sports radicals don't follow their bearded breathren, they will
soon start resembling them in another way.
It won't be long before sports radicals also are decked out in torn
blue jeans and faded sweat shirts. They won't be able to afford
anything else.

Huskies on Patrol
From there, the Huskies put the
pressure on. keeping the puck in
their offensive zone. In the final
period, they launched 32 shots,
14 of which were on target enough
for Michigan goalie Jim Keough
to make saves.
Esposito, by comparison, had to
make only five stops.
The fans went wild at 18:32
when Randy Binnie was whistled
to the penalty box for an illegal
check of a Tech forward near the
red line.
Thednoise and tension com-
pounded at 18:56 when Huskies
pulled Esposito for another for-
The extra man did no good,
however, and the Wolverines man-
aged to keep the puck on the
boards. They even mounted an
offensive on the open net, using
up precious seconds.
The last ticks on the clock
drained away with Tech unable
to get off a close range shot.
Lasting only two hours and 15
minutes, the game was a hard-

Icers, 3
G skating match. The game was so
fast that checking was at a mini-
mum and only three penalties
were called the whole night.
In the locker room afterward,
the Wolverines were picking apart
the game.
"It says here they took more
shots than we did," commented;
Coach Al Renfrew. His next re-
marks, "but the score was 3-2 in
goals," brought a roar from every-
where in the room.
"We could go on forever on
things we could or should have
done," added Keough. "But we
did enough right."
Tech coach John MacInnes said,
"I wasn't disappointed with my
team. I thought our kids played a
great game. We just couldn't get
the breaks."
Time after time the Huskies had
opportunities in front of the

bouncing puck or a miffed deflec-
tion. The Wolverine defense clog-
ged the middle enough to help out
Keough with his 14 saves.
"They had too many in the
middle," commented Michigan de-
fenseman Paul Domm.
"We play position hockey," in-
terjected Renfrew.
"Michigan got a break on that
second goal," sighed MacInnes.
"And that set them off."

Michigan was great, MSU was
good, but all you heard about
last night's Western Michigan Re-
lays was Randolph, Randolph and
Randolph. Tom Randolph, from
DeWitt Clinton High School in
New York, is fantastic.
Coach Hale of Western Michi-
gan could only say, "He's good
and he'll even be better."
Randolph ran the 60 yards in
3.2 seconds, which in itself is not
superb, but then he took the ba-
ton on the final leg of the mile
relay and really poured it on.
His :47.2 quarter mile was even
more impressive when he flashed
past a Michigan runner in his
final stride.
The other crowd pleaser was the
shuttle hurdles. This is a combi-
nation of four 60-yard low hurdle
races, where first man runs 60
yards, tags his teammate and he
runs back.
Western Michigan set a new
meet and fieldhouse record by per-
forming; all these shenagins in only
28.8 seconds.
Four 'M' Firsts
Michigan picked up only four
first places in the Relays.
The distance medley team of
Ken Coffin, Bob Gerometta, Ron
Kutchinski and Tom Kearney fin-
ished in the second fastest time in
intercollegiate history.
In the high jump, Gary Knick-
erbocker left his competition be-

hind at 6'6" and then proceeded to
clear 6'8" and 6'934"-his personal
Ron Shortt, the highly-regard-
ed frosh pole vaulter, continued
to amaze Wolverine enthusiasts
with a vault of 15'. This gave
Shortt a personal high and a third
place finish in the meet.
