5ophs Spur Icers to Top WCHA

By PERRY HOOD
With nearly half the league sea-
son gone, Michigan's icers share
the lead in the WCHA standings
with Minnesota, bolstered by nine
talented sophomores.
Wilfred Martin paces the soph
skaters as the team's third lead-
ing scorer overall, and the league's

leading point-getter. In the second
period of a non-conference win
over Loyola of Montreal, Martin
blasted through three goals in
three minutes, nine seconds to
gain his first hat trick of the
season.
The second line composed of
sophomores Martin, Alex Hood,

and junior Marty Read has con-
tributed 58 points out of the team
total of 265. Coach Al Renfrew
said, "These fellows are playing
real well for sophomores.
"Defensively the sophomores
have done a tremendous job," con-
tinued Renfrew. Tom Polonic, a
good-sized defenseman at 210
pounds standing 6'3", is the team's
fifth highest scorer, a "very high
score for any defenseman,' ac-
cording to Renfrew. "Polonic is
playing very well at defense."
Colorado Coach Bob Johnson
summed up the defense with: "The
big defense is very effective," aft-
er watching his Tiger's being con-
tinually beaten out fighting for
the puck around the boards.
Gets Hat Trick
Mel Wakabayashi, an instant
crowd-pleaser because of his hustle
and scrappy play for his size (5'6",
150 pounds), has played extremely
well since becoming eligible at the

beginning of the semester. Waka-
bayashi tallied a hat trick last
Saturday against Colorado College,
and "could have had two or three
more," said Renfrew. "Wakabay-
ashi is an exciting player," added
the coach.
. Sophomore Barry MacDonald
has been starting at defense all
season, after having been convert-
ed from wing. Ted Henderson,
playing defense with experienced
Roger Galipeau, "has improved
tremendously this year." Another
defenseman, Rick Day, "will be
good later on", not having had as
much game experience as the oth-
er sophomores.
Adds Two Goals
Bob Ferguson, playing wing with
the third line, is "getting better
every game," continued Renfrew.
Ferguson pounded home two goals
against Colorado Friday night for
his fifth and sixth goals of the
season.
With leading scorer Gary Butler
resting because of a slight knee in-
jury, sophomore Pierre Dechaine
played with the first line and
scored his first goal of his colle-
giate career against Colorado Sat-
urday.
Half of Total Scores
Overall, the sophs have contrib-
uted almost half of the team's
total points, 131 out of 265. Col-
orado College's Johnson mentioned
the Wolverines "impressive of-
fense, with good balance" as being
a deciding factor in their success
in the series.
Butler and goalie Bob Gray,
both slightly injured during the
weekend series, were at practice
today and are in good shape ac-
cording to Renfrew. The Wolver-
ines now stand 5-1 in the confer-
ence, 12-2 overall, with two away
games this weekend against Ohio
University and Ohio State.

that Michigan was fighting hard
to keep its unblemished confer-
ence record intact..
The contest was a different
story fr'om the one played at Yost
Field House two weeks ago, when
the Wolverines routed Ohio State
82-64.
The game was tied three times
in the second half but the Wol-
verines were unable to pull away.
They led four times but never by
more than two points.
Bradds led all scorers but Rus-
sell and Buntin were the next
highest with 30 and 26 respec-
tively.
One difference from the first
game was the fact that Michigan
failed to outrebound Ohio State.
Each team had 39 rebounds. Rus-
sell and Darden led all rebounders
with 11 and 10 respectively.
The Buckeyes got hot in the sec-
ond stanza pumping in 65 per cent
of their shots, while Michigan hit
a respectable 50 per cent.
The only shot the Buckeye cen-
ter missed in the second half out
of the fifteen shots he took was
tipped in by the Ohio forward Bob
Shaffer.
Ohio State brought its confer-
ence record to 4-2 while they are
only 9-7 on the year.'
The loss was not disastrous to
Michigan's title hopes. They still
moved into first place because of
the Illinois loss. The Wolverines
play Illinois at Champaign Sat-
urday.

Michigan Improved on last
year's performance at St. Johns
by only one point, last year's
Ohio's victory margin was two
points, but neither coach detract-
ed from the Wolverines effort in
Columbus.
I tbeen 17 years since the Wol-
verines last won in Columbus and
now the basketball team will have
to wait until next year until they
can try to breakthat string. The
.,Buckeyes have never been beaten
in St. Johns by a Big Ten team but
they have lost three games to non-
conference foes this year. The first
of these losses was to powerful
Davidson.
Coach Dave Strack said after
the game, "They got good- shots,
we didn't expect them to make all
those 20 footers. On the whole I'd
have to say that we played pretty
'gutty' ball. The way we - came
from eight points behind, it might
have been a different story if we
would have made one of those
three tips. We had the momentum
and you can never tell what's go-
ing to happen in the overtime."
About that last frantic play
Strack had this to say, "We had
the ball set up for Cazzie, if he
couldn't get the shot it would

Saubert NipS
Into Second
In Slalom
INNSBRUCK, Austria WP) -
America's daring darling of the
ski slopes, Jean Saubert, raced to
a second place tie in the ladies'
giant slalom yesterday and won
her second medal-a silver-for
the United States in the ninth
Winter Olympic Games.
Brightness came to the U.S.
camp after days of steady defeat
and frustration when a pair of
young figure skating aces, Scotty
Allen of Smoke Rise, N.J., and
Monty Hoyt of Denver, got off to
a strong early start in the men's
singles at the Ice Stadium.
Miss Saubert, 21-year-old Ore-
gon State student from Lakeview,
Ore., swooped down the 1,662-
yard, 59-gate Lizum Valley course
like a runaway rocket to tie
Christine Goitschel of France for
the silver medal. both of them the
bat of an eyelash back of Chris-
tine's kid sister, Marielle.
Marielle, 18, won the gold medal
with the excellent clocking of 1
minute, 52.24 seconds. Jean and
Christine were timed in 1:53.11.
The same three girls finished
1-2-3 last Saturday in the ladies'
slalom, but in different order.
Christine, 19, was the winner, with
Marielle second and Miss Sau-
bert, the bronze medalist at third.
Other U.S. women skiers finish-
ed out of the running. Barbara
Ferries of Houghton, Mich., was
20th in 1:59.44; Joan Hannah of
Franconia, N.H., was 26th in
2:01.97, and Linda Meyers of
Bishop, Calif., was 30th in 2:03.46.
BIG EIGHT:
Orange Bowl
Drops Pact
MIAMI, Fla. W)P-The Orange
Bowl decided yesterday to drop its
11-year-old contract with the Big
Eight Conference and go into the
open market to find opponents
for the annual New Year's Day
football game.
"It was the hope of the Orange
Bowl committee that all sections
of our country would thereby be-
come eligible for our bowl," said
Ben Benjamin, president of the
committee.
The committee and the execu-
tive director of the Big Eight,
Wayne Duke, said their relation-
ship had been pleasant and the
decision was made without any
hard feelings.
"The committee recognizes that
the Big Eight is one of the out-
standing conferences in the coun-
try and we have enjoyed a most
pleasant and mutually enjoyable
relationship," said Benjamin.

It's a bad year to be a wrestler.
With Cazzie Russell and com-
pany packing them in at leaky
Yost Field House and hockey and
gymnastics teams after NCAA
crowns Michigan matmen have
been somewhat overshadowed. Few
people seem to realize that the
Wolverine wrestlers are quietly
stalking their 11th Big Ten crown.
The lack of attention doesn't
seem to matter to wrestling cap-
tain Wayne Miller. He isn't used
to a lot of limelight.
"I played baseball and football
in high school besides competing
in wrestling," said Miller, "but I
never got any state awards."
Captaincy
Today, however, Miller is lead-
ing one of the nation's foremost
wrestling teams. How did it come
about.
In his senior year of high school,
Wayne decided that if he was go-
ing to participate in varsity ath-
letics in college it would have to
be wrestling.
"I wasn't good enough to play
baseball or football," he said. "But
this wasn't his only reason for
choosing wrestling., "I was also
kind of small for most college
sports. This is no problem in
wrestling because of the weight
class system. That's why I like
the sport. It's desire and determ-
ination that counts-not size."
Coach Boosts M'
In his decision to come to Mich-
igan Wayne was guided by his
high school coach and friend, Jack
Marchello, who was one of Mich-
igan's top wrestlers a few years
ago. After two trips to the campus
and visits with coach Cliff Keen,
Wayne made his choice for Mich-
igan.
Like most high school wrestlers,
he found the transition to the
college mat an abrupt one. Be-
sides the fact that the matches
are three minutes longer and that

the books more rigorous, Wayne
noted that college wrestling ne-
cessitates more desire.
"The competition is so close
that the decision usually goes to
the wrestler who wants it more.
Even within our own team the
competition is fierce."
Likes It Tough
Competition, however, seems to
be something that Miller thrives
on. Last year he battled Big Ten
champion Rick Bay all season for
the 157 pound starting berth, and
although Bay finally started in
t h e conference championship,
Miller saw action in several meets
during the year.
This year, with Bay at 167, the
situation is reversed. Miller has
the starting berth but is challeng-
ed every week by teammates Dave
Post and Jim Evashevski.
"These challenge matcnes," says

Wayne, "are as tough as any
matches we get. Again that's what
makes wrestling unique.' We owe
our training to our coaches, but
in the end its up to the man him-
self-his intelligence, his determ-
ination."
"We've got Michigan State to
contend with yet. We're going to
be careful. Any team would love
to knock us off, so we're taking
them one at a time."

hits on his patented Jumper in the Ohio State game at Ann Arbor
ten days ago. Last night in the second half of the Ohio State-
Michigan game it was Bradds who maintained Ohio's point bulge
by hitting on a string of six straight buckets. The Wolverines
Bill Buntin, who got 26 points, defends against Bradds.

"Bradds is an amazing shooter."
