Wolverine Icers
Take Break in 1ho*10

Bernard Keeps

Up Past Cagers Face Rough Road Slate


Michigan's rampaging hockey
team will take a break from its
quest for the WCHA title this
weekend when ithmeets Ohiof
University and Ohio State on
the road.1
The Wolverines, currently the1
top scoring collegiate team in th'
nation with an 8.0 goal per game
average, will clash for the first
time in history with the Ohio Uni-
versity Bobcats in Athens on Fri-
day night, and travel to Colum-
bus for a game with the Buckeyes
on Saturday.
The two games will be a fin-
al tuneup for Coach Al Renfrew's
crew before taking on the remain.-
der of its WCHA schedule which
lists four games with arch-rival
Michigan State, a pair of games
with Michigan Tech at Houghton
and two contests with Minnesota
in Ann Arbor.
Michigan is currently tied with
Minnesota for the league lead with
move into undisputed first place
a 5-1 record. The Gophers can
this weekend with two victories, or
a victory and a tie against last
place Colorado College.
Heavily Favored
The Maize and Blue sextet will
be heavily favorites against the
wo Ohio schools. Both schools
are in the beginning stages of
developing an intercollegiate hock-
ey program.
In six WCHA games this sea-
son, the Wolverines have served
notice to its foes that it has!
plenty of offensive punch, even
without its leading scorer. With
left-winger Gary Butler, current-
ly the leading point getter with
20 goals and a like number of
assists, sitting on the bench in
last Saturday's game with a bruis-
ed knee, sophomore forwards Mel
Wakabayashi and Wilf Martin
picked up the slack. Butler's in-
jury has since healed.
Wakabayashi fired home three
goals for a hat trick and Martin'
added a pair as the Wolverines
routed the hapless Colorado squad,
12-4. Martin also added a goal in
two assists in the series to boost
his league mark to 15 points, tops
in the WCHA.
While the newcomers have add-
ed greatly to Michigan's offen-
sive punch, the veterans do not
have to take any back seat. Be-
sides Butler's 40 points, Captain
Gordon Wilkie has 11 goals and 24
assists to his credit and junior

wingman Jack Cole has notched 27
points on 13 goals and 14 assists.
Wilkie ranks third in WCHA
scoring with five goals and seven
assists behind Martin and Mich-
igan's sophomore defenseman Tom
Polonic. Polonic has tallied 14
points in league play on three
goals and 11 assists.
Not to be overlooked in the
Wolverines fine 12-2 season's rec-
ord is the goaltending, of Bob
Gray. In 12 games, the senior from
Owen Sound, Ont., has allowed 33
goals for a 2.75 average.
Team statistics:

The romantic island of Trinidad
in the Caribbean has produced a
long line of excellent trackmen,
most of them quarter-milers, in-
cluding Herb McKinley, Arthur
Wint, George Rhoden and George
It would seem that the next
name to be added to this list will
be Kent Bernard, a junior here at
Kent started running track back
in 1958. In high school he ran
mostly 100- and 220-yard dashes.
After graduation, he stayed out of
school for a year, and during this
time, he started running longer
distances because he felt he was
a stronger and faster runner in the
longer races. He said he came to
Michigan because he "knew a
couple guys from here. Also, a;
team came from here (from'
Michigan) to Trinidad, and I
talked to Coach Canham."
And it was head track coach
1 Don Canham who was responsible
for recruiting Kent. "I knew his
coach real well, and he told me
about him when he was a junior
in high school.
"He had run a couple quarter
miles in high school, and we fig-
ured he'd be better as a quarter
miler," Canham commented.
Outdoors Man
Both Canham and Bernard feel
that he runs better on outdoor
tracks. Inside tracks have nar-
rower lanes, and this hampers a
runner with a long graceful stride
such as Bernard has.

Although Kent was bothered by
leg trouble part of last season, his
legs are strong and well this year,
and besides, anchoring the mile
relay team, Kent will be running
the 440 on outdoor tracks and the
600 indoors. Canham has predict-
ed that he will be running the
quarter mile in the 46 second area
this year,
Last year had its disappoint-
ments for him. Several hours after
setting a Big Ten record in the
600-yard run, he was disqualified
for stepping on the chalk line. In
a meet against Iowa, during the
time his leg injury was hampering
him, he had a seven yard deficit
to make up as anchor man in the
mile relay. He came within a yard
of this distance, although he was
running against one of the fastest
men in the Big Ten.
Shown Potential
But Bernard has already shown
his potential as a champion. In
the Michigan Relays this year he
anchored the mile relay team with
a time of :48.0. He holds a varsity
record in the 440 with two turns
with the same time. Last year he
ran the fastest indoor quarter mile
in the country, anchoring the relay
team with a time of :47.0. He also
came within one tenth of a second
of the Big Ten record in the 600-
yard run, at a time during which
his leg was troubling him.


Michigan's basketball team faces
a hard road ahead in its quest
for a Big Ten championship if it
is as hard to win an away game
as it was in the first half of the
In the first 29 conference games,
visiting teams were only victorious
in five contests. The Wolverines
won two of these away games
(Purdue and Michigan State)
while dropping an encounter to
Ohio State last Monday night in
Four of the Wolverines' last
seven conference games will be on
foreign courts. Starting with this
Saturday's contest with Illinois
at Champaign, Michigan makes
back to back trips to play Min-
nesota and Wisconsin on February
18 and 22 before making the last
excursion of the season to Iowa
City on March 7.
Michigan leads the Big Ten with
a 6-1 record, followed by Illinois
at 3-1 and Ohio State at 4-2. The
Illini defeat was a game at In-
diana last Monday night. Both
Buckeye defeats were on the road
also. Michigan and Michigan State
beat OSU on their home courts.

One thing going for Michigans
in both home and away gamesI
in the last month of the seasona
is a high completion percentage1
from the floor and from the free
throw line. Ohio State leads thet
Big Ten in field goal average with1
a .489 completion percentage.
Ties Record
OMAHA (/P)-Terry Williams,
Omaha University sophomore
sprinter, tied the world record
of six seconds even for the 60-
yard dash in a dual meet
Thursday night. He beat team-
mate Roger Sayers by inches.
Michigan ranks just behind in
second place with a .463 average.
In free throws. Michigan has a
.780 average which tops all other
conference teams. Ohio State is
next in line with a .745 average.
Leading this Wolverine offen-
sive attack are Cazzie Russell and
Bill Buntin, ranking fourth and;
fifth'in the conference with aver-3

second only to Buckeye Gary
Bradds' 60.6 per cent average
among the conference's twenty
leading scorers.
Russell's .894 average at the free
throw line is second only to
Bradds' .895 average. Buntin, with
a .796 average, is well up among
the conference leaders. Russell's
total point contribution of 181 is
second only to Bradds' 223 points.

Kent has several goals in mind

said he would probably teach geo-
graphy, his favorite subject.
'Before leaving the West Indies,
Kent was not just a track man.
"I used to play a lot of soccer,"
he recalled. "It was my first love.
But there is no soccer up here."
So Kent Bernard, m~uch to the
delight of Michigan track coaches
and fans, has taken to the track.

Will Martin Become Another Berenson?


"Wilfred Martin has the poten-
tial to become one of the greatest
goal scorers in Michigan's history."
This high praise from hockey
coach Al Renfrew seems justified,
for Martin is presently the leader
in WCHA scoring. He tallied four
goals and two assists in the Colo-
rado College series this weekend
to push himself four points past
John Simus of CC, the previous
leader. For the season Martin is
credited. with 19 goals and 14
assists for a total of 33 points in
the team's 14 games.
Martin, a very amiable and
modest young man, has been play-
ing hockey since the age of four.
In his native St. Paul, Alberta,
Canada, he worked his way up
through the Pee Wee, Bantam,
Juvenile and Junior A and B
leagues before he graduated from
high school.

He credits his success this, year
to a "desire to start playing again
after being off for a year. Al-
though I did work out with the
varsity, I was only a freshman last
year, and didn't have a chance to
play in any games. This hurts a
player and so I really wanted to
get back into action this year."
"The Fox," as he is affection-
ately called by his teammates, is
presently enrolled in the School of
Education, and is considering a
cereer in either physical educa-
tion or French.
Martin was attracted by Mich-
igan's strong academic reputation
as well as the recommendations
of several other players. He only
saw the campus once before en-
rolling, but now emphatically
states, "Iam really glad that I
came here."
Martin played over ten years of
hockey under the International
Rules and found the change over
somewhat difficult at first. "But
now that I have changed, I would
probably have trouble going back.
I really like this American style
better with no fore checking in
the offensive zone, and longer
passes than the Canadian rules.
It makes for a more wide open
game, and it is really an offensive
player's paradise," he said.
Commenting on the team's fu-
ture, Martin described the Wol-
verines as "very strong. We still
have a series each with Tech and
Minnesota left on our schedule,
but I think that we can sweep
those. We had good games with
Tech when they were here, and
they should give us a real good
battle again. Bobby Gray was
really great in the nets those two
games and that made the dif-

When asked about a possible
professional career, in the foot-

Berenson, Martin replied, "I
don't know. Any decision I make
will have to wait until I finish
college, and then it will have to
depend on what kind of contract
offer I get and on a lot of other
In describing Martin's play,
Renfrew called him, "a good dig-
ger and fore checker," and the
possessor of a "hard shot that
he gets off quickly." These abili-
ties make Martin one of the
strongest sophomore prospects that
Maize and Blue hockey fans have
ever seen.
