fresh men in the game. In that
20 minute session, the Wolverines
played shorthanded for a total of
13 minutes and 21 seconds.
Rallying in the third period, the
Wolverines came within an ace
of the tying goal several times,
but were unable to score. And
when Renfrew pulled Coyle from
the nets with a minute and a half
to go to get an extra attacker,
Minnesota's Gary Schmalzbauer
added the clincher.
Minnesota Scores
The game opened fast and at
the 26 second mark Minnesota
took the lead. Len Lillyholm fired
the first power play goal of the
night. On the first rush after Tom
Wilson's penalty, Lillyholm caged
a 15-foot backhander from a goal
mouth scramble.
The Wolverines, who outskated
and outfought the Gophers
throughout much of the game,
came right back. Red Berenson
knotted the count less than two
minutes later as Schmalzbauer sat
out a tripping penalty.
Jerry Kolb gave the Wolverines
their only lead at 12:54 with a 20-
foot bullet into the net. Joe Lung-
hamer made the play, taking the
puck behind the net and setting
Kolb up with a beautiful pass.
Pressed For Equalizer
The Gophers pressed for an
equalizer throughout the rest of
the period and into 'the second.
Oscar Mahle finally got it on an-
other power play at 8:21. He took
Jerry Norman's pass and squeez-
ed a shot into the near side that
Coyle deflected.
With six penalties seriously
handicapping the Wolverines, only
Coyle's spectacular goaltending
and the erratic shooting of the
Gophers kept Michigan in the
game.
Time after time the senior net-
minder came up with unbelievable
saves and the period ended in a
2-2 tie.
Minnesota finally got what

proved to be the winning goal on
another power play. Larry Smith,
who trapped Dick Young's re-
bound off the post, fired into the
far corner to give the Gophers the
lead they never lost.
Later in the period the Gophers
scored what appeared to be their
fourth goal of the night, but ref-
eree Franzen disallowed it. The
shot by Tom Morse cleanly beat
Coyle as it deflected off Larry
Babcock's pads, but Lillyholm was
standing in the crease.
The Wolverines came closest to
tying the game about two min-
utes later, but Larson made great
saves on Babcock and then Hin-
negan on the rebound, and then
Berenson fired over the net on
Hinnegan's rebound.
The Michigan team, dismayed
and disgruntled over tonight's ac-
tion, simply said "wait until to-
morrow night."

Purdue Hosts
'M' Tankers
In Dual Meet
By JAN WINKELMAN
Michigan's swimming team is
hinglily favored to win its first
dual meet of the season this af-
ternoon when the tankmen take
on Purdue at Lafayette.
The Wolverines will be handi-
capped by the absence of Olympic
competitors Alex Gaxiola, Bob
Webster, Dave Gillanders, and Bill
Darnton, who failed to return
from Europe in time to register
for the fall esmester. However,
Michigan should have enough
depth to win handily.
"If past experience is any in-
dication, Purdue will lack the con-
ditioning and depth to match us,"
commented swimming coach Gus
Stager.
Good Diver
"Purdue has an excellent diver,
John Vogel, who will be good com-
petition for our divers, Pete Cox
and Ron Jaco," he said.
Although Cox, a sophomore from
Saginaw, won individual high
point honors in the Big Ten Re-
lays held last week at East Lan-
sing, diving coach Dick Kimball
observed:
"The diving event will be very
close. Jaco could win if he dives
well.
"Vogel was seventh in the na-
tionals last year and placed well
in both Big Ten diving events, the
low and high boards."
More Experienced
"The meet will provide additional
experience for sophomores Bob
Clark, Steve Thrasher, Warren
Uhler, John Dumont, Paul Coop-
er, and Bob Benson," said Stager.
Also expected to do well are
Captain Frank Legacki, Big Ten
50-yd. freestyle record holder, and
Big Ten and National breaststroke
holder Ron Clark.
Both men will be hoping to bet-
ter their existing records in the
meet today.

By JOHN SCOCHIN
Canadian Olympian Richard
Montpetit won three events, while
previously untested sophomores
came through with winning per-
formances as Minchigan shellack-
ed Navy Pier, 79'-32/ in the
season's opening gymnastics meet
last night.
With muscles rippling and facial
expression scarcely altering, the
veteran Montpetit executed well
drilled turns, twirls, and stands in
various events to grab first place
honors in the side horse, parallel
bars and still rings. To cap the
evening's workout he added a
second place in the high bar and
a third in the free exercise, to
wind up with a total of 450.5
points in five events.
Nations Combine
Sophomores Barry Spicer and
Gil Larose of Tuscon, Arizona,
and Montreal, respectively, com-
bined the talents of two nations
to finish first and second in the
free exercise.
Spicer's remarkable somersaults
and excellent balance brought
"oohs" from the crowd as he
finished with 90.5 out of a possible
100 points. Larose's race horse
performance, utilizing speed and
form to full advantage in his
twirls was good enough for an
89-point total. Captain Montpetit
gave Michigan a sweep in the
event with his 88.5 mark.
Swimmer Too
Althfgh he is a regular diver
on the Wolverine swimming team,
junior Pete Francis provided the
surprise of the evening by cap-
turing the rebound tumbling title
with a well formulated and well
executed routine.
The converted aquanaut defeat-
ed teammate Mark Erenburg, a
fifth place finisher in the NAAU
championships last year, along
with Tom Osterland, the Big Ten,
NCAA, and NAAU runnerup last
year, and Michigan's prime bet
for national honors in the event.
Port Huron's Lewis Fenner, a
sophomore, looked like a "dark
horse" winner in the side horse
with a fine score of 90, before all
around star Montpetit flashed
in with a 92. Fenner's showing
Title Match
For Pender
BOSTON OP) - Paul Pender,
the American who boxes like an
Englishman, today is a 9-5 favor-
ite to repel the challenge of Terry
Downes. the Briton who fights
like a Yank, in their title fight
tonight.
The two clash in a television
(ABC-10 p.m.) 15-rounder at
Boston Arena for Pender's share
of the world middleweight cham-
pionship.
The 30 - year - old ex-fireman
from Brookline, is recognized as
king of the 160-pounders by New
York, Massachusetts and Europe.
Gene Fullmer of West Jordon,
Utah, is hailed as champion by the
American National Boxing Asso-
ciation.

gave the Wolverine's promise of
a powerful 1-2 punch in the event
for the coming season.
Flashy Sophomore
Propeller-like twirls gave Cana-
dian sophomore Jim Hynds the
first place award in the high
bar to lead a clean sweep by
Michigan in that event. Montpetit
and versatile Larose finished close
behind, beating their closest Navy
Pier competitor by three points.
The visitors picked up points
with seconds and thirds in the
parallel bars and still rings, even
though Montpetit was the victor
in each event.
Tumbling, a Michigan strong-
point, did not live up to the hopes
of gymnastics Coach Newt Loken,
although Jim Brown took a first
and Tom Osterland tied for se-
cond. "It still needs work," he
stated, the boys made some need-
less mistakes."
Michigan Toughest
Coach Ben Malcolm of Navy
Pier, whose squad defeated In-
diana, Wisconsin and powerful
Iowa, stated, "Michigan is un-
questionably the best team we've

faced thus far. I've also seen con-
ference champion Illinois per-
form and Michigan has the mater-
ial to really give them a match."
The Michigan team faces its
biggest test of the season against
Illinois in the next home- meet,
on Saturday, Feb. 11.

By CLIFF MARKS
An improving Michigan five
'uns into a tall Illinois basket-
ball team at Champaign today,
where the always-tough Illini
have proved unbeatable this year
In three contests.
But on the road, Illinois has
asted defeat in all seven of its
:ontests, giving it the same over-
all record as Michigan. The Wol-
rerines have not yet won on the
oad either, but will be trying to
break this streak, along with Il-
linois' home court superiority.
The game will be broadcast by
WtOM-FM (91.7mc) and WHRV
(1600) starting at 2:30 (EST).
"Huff gymnasium is just that,
% gym, not a fieldhouse, and is a
rery difficult place to play," said
Coach Dave Strack, explaining
Ilinois' home record. "It is very
hard to get used to, and with the
eople sitting right on the side-
lnes, the players get that cramped
feeling."
He added that some of Illinois'
problems away from home, in this
and former years, stem from the
'act that the Illini players become
t)0 accustomed to practicing in
heir gym. "Once they get zeroed
In on those baskets," said Strack,
'it appears that they shoot from
nemory."
Michigan did win at Huff two
rears ago when present captain
John Tidwell was a high scoring
sophomore and he undoubtedly
emembers the gym well.
Record Not Indicative
The other squad members will
have to get used to It in a hurry
as scores of their games show
;hat the inexperienced Illini are
not as bad as their 3-7 record in-
licates. They beat Butler (12-
point conqueror of Michigan) by
12 points at home, only to lose
;o the Bulldogs by two points in
a 70-68 thriller in the Hoosier
Classic. Butler went on to win
he event, beating Purdue by two
also.
Guard Jerry Colangelo, a hot-
hooting southpaw with a .529
hooting percentage leads the
roung Illini, who list nine sopho-
nores on their roster, after los-
ng eight lettermen by graduation.
Colangelo's 13.5 per game aver-
ige is closely followed by 6'7" John
Wessel's 13.3, 6'8" Bill Burwell's
12.8. and Soph Dave Downey's
12.4. The latter Is a rugged 6'5"
and the team's leading rebounder.
Height, Scoring
Despite this height and bal-
anced scoring, both of which are
>othering Strack, Coach Harry

Combes has not been able to come
up with a winning combination.
The veteran coach blames mainly
inexperience for the sad showing,
and has indicated that he may al-
ternate Burwell and Wessels at
center as he did earlier this year,
instead of using adouble pivot
setup. If he does this, 6'5" Ed
Searcy, would probably return to
the starting lineup, but there are
other possibilities.
Strack was somewhat uncertain
about his -starters, but said that
the same seven who showed up
well against Indiana would carry
the load today. They would include
Jon Hall and Steve Schoenherr at
guard along with Tidwell, while
Bob Brown, Don Petroff, Tom
Cole, and Scott Maentz will man
the front line spots.

PISTON PUNCHER:
Lee Battles' Toward Stardom

4'

By BRIAN MacCLOWRY
Ordinarily George Lee is a very
amiable fellow.
He goes about his business try-
ing not to offend anyone, and
usually manages to keep out of
the public eye.
Lee's business, incidentally, is
playing basketball for the Detroit
Pistons. The former Michigan star
is in his rookie season with the
Pistons, and is just beginning to
show signs of becoming a head-
liner in the NBA also - as is
evidenced by his 22 points against
Cincinnatti Wednesday night.
But his scoring outburst wasn't
the only bit of horseplay Lee in-
dulged in recently. Last week he
also managed to get into a fight
with New York Knickerbocker for-
ward Kenny Sears-unfortunately
for Sears, who left the game with
a fractured jaw.
Not Dangerous
Now fights during athletic con-
tests are not exactly noted for
their felonious consequences. In
fact down through the years it
seems safe to assume that the
combatants were in about as much
danger as two cream puffs in a
padded cell.
Hove times changed? Not ac-
cording to Lee.
"Heck, I wasn't trying to hurt
Sears," he claims. "We Just got
tangled up under the' boards
scrambling for the ball. It's just
one of those things that happen
in basketball. There was nothing
personal involved."
He continued, "That was the
first fight I've been involved in
since I started playing professional
basketball. Sometimes, of course,

foul. The next time they won't.
If you give the players an inch
in this league they'll take a mile."
At 6'S", and 225 lbs, Lee is built
along the lines of an over-the-
weight heavyweight. But despite
his new found fame he insists he
has no intention of challenging
the winner of the Patterson-
Johannson bout.
"Are you kidding," he asks in-
credously, as if also saying, "They
would murder me."
Denies Quote,
Lee denied ever making the
statement, "It was him or me,"
which was attributed to him in
one of the New York papers. "You

very difficult for Lee to do, Judg-
ing by the $100 fine levied against
him by league president Marice
Podoloff, and the mental attitude
of the Knickerbockers.
Not Justified
Asked if he thought the fine,
for "unsportsmanlike conduct,"'
was Justified, Lee replied with a
simple "no," probably remember-
ing that he had already rapped
the referrees, and figuring the
place to stop was at the league
president.
As for the Knickerbockers, Lee
suspects they might be vengeful
the next time they play the Pis-
tons. New York coach Carl Braun
has already traded verbal slaps
with the referees of the game,
commenting to the effect that
they should police players like Lee
closer.
"I don't quite know what to
expect from the Knicks the next
time we meet," remarks Lee. "Let's
say they probably will be looking
for me.
Naturally Lee's teammates on
the Pistons have also . taken ad-
vantage of the incident. They good
naturedly refer to him as "champ"
and "Rocky."
'Fahn' Player
But his mates also appreciate
Lee as a basketball player. Bailey
Howell, the Pistons leading scorer
from Mississippi State drowls in
his soft southern accent, "George
is already a fahn (translation-
fine) basketball player, but he's
shore (translation-sure) toim-
prove a lot also. He'll be a great
help to us the remainder of the
season."
Lee, himself, thinks the Pistons
oa a hetta,. nliih than, thev have
