WCHA Alters Maximum Age'

Ends in Abundance Return to



The Western College Hockey1
Association at its recent meeting
moved to restrict the influx of
Canadian hockey players into the
Michigan, which won the con-
ference championship this year,
will be subject to these changes,
but according to Coach Al Ren-
frew, "They should not affect us
very much. Actually, all they did;
Was to lower the age limit after1
which a player loses a year of
eligibility from 20 to 19.
"Roger Galipeau and Jack Cole
will not be playing for us next
year, but that is because they are
over the present age limit anyway.
Also Gary Butler, our leading
scorer for two seasons, will not be
back because he came here the
same time Gordie Wilkie did, but
was under the five year eligibil-
ity plan."
The actual statement of the

{ ?

WCHA is: "Each year following
the date of a hockey player's 19th
birthday during which he has had
competition in hockey, other than
competition after his matricula-
tion in a college with a US. Olym-
pic, U.S. National, or U.S. Military
squad, shall count as one year of
college compeition.

Mainly Canadians
On the 1963-64 Michigan hockey
team 17 of the 19 players on the
roster were Canadians, the only
exceptions being Dave Newton
and George Forrest.
Denver, Michigan's opponent in
the finals of the NCAA Hockey
Championsjiips, has 23 of their 25
players from Canada.
The WCHA also limited next
year's traveling squads to 17 play-
ers. Renfrew points out that, "Al-
though we traveled with a larger
team than that this season, it was
the first time in years that we
had as many players who should
Scholarships Limited
Limits were, also placed on the
scholarships that could be offered
so that they would not exceed tui-
tion, room, board, and books. Ren-
frew said yesterday that "these
limits are more than we offer a
player presently anyway, so they
will not affect us at all."
All of these regulations will go
into effect on June 1, 1964.
"These rule adjustments will
tend to even out the competition
in the league, and prevent any
one team from dominating the
play for a long period of time, as
Denver did," comments Renfrew.
He adds, "I do think that the
teams were more evenly matched
this year than in the past."
On the question of Canadian
recruiting, Renfrew points out, "I
personally -have not tried to re-
cruit Canadian boys tocome to
Michigan this year. We want to
give the American boy a chance
to play, but we do not discourage
Canadians from attending school
here, provided that they can meet
the necessary requirements. I do
hope that Canadian boys will con-
tinue to choose to come to Mich-
"Michigan will stay with the
WCHA next year," says Renfrew.
"The Big Ten hockey conference
consisting of Michigan State,
Minnesota, Ohio State, and Mich-
igan, which has not been grow-
ing very rapidly. Wisconsin has
been making some recruiting
strides and are on the upswing.
Ohio State (which Michigan beat
21-0 this year) is still a question
mark though," he adds.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
first of a series of articles analyz-
ing next year's Michigan football
team position by position.)
Like, man it's Endsville!
Like, take a peep at the Mich-
igan football roster and look over
all the ends who are returning.
The Wolverines will lost not
an end from last season's team.
Cautious Coach Bump Elliott is
willing to admit that that end is
"one of our stronger positions."
One of the anchors at the posi-
tion would appear to be Captain
Jim Conley, currently listed on
the Blue starting team in spring
practice. Listed at 6'3", 190
pounds he often gives away a bit
of weight to the opposition, but
defense is still considered his
strong point.
Conley, hailing from Springdale,
Pa., where he was an all-state
fullback, gathered in six passes
for 114 yards and a touchdown last
Bill Laskey is now listed as
the other Blue team end. A husky

Although Wenley gained only
one first place, in the pole vault,
they notched two seconds and
four thirds. The seconds came in
the 440 yard run and the 60
yard dash, the thirds in the shot
put, broad jump, mile run and
the 440.

turned in the night's only rec-
ord-breaking efort, with a time
of 4:39.2 in the mile.

Michigan 7%

Lloyd 5

207 pound junior from Milan,
Mich., he picked off seven passes
last season for 105 yards.
Currently toiling for the White
second team at end are sopho-
mores Steve Smith and Craig
Kirby. Smith won a letter last
season though he caught nary a
pass. Kirby became one of Michi-
gan's prime offensive threats on
the flank as he pocketed a baker's
dozen passes, good for 166 yards.
Ben Farabee is presently work-
ing with the third string Gold
team along with Jeff Hoyne. Both
are letter winners.
Where Is Henderson?
So where is John Henderson,
who caught 27 passes for 330
yards and four touchdowns in his
rookie season? He has decided to
jump over hurdles instead of
tacklers. Henderson is out for
track and also recovering from a
shoulder operation.
One other man worthy of notice
is Clayton Wilhite, a would-be
sophomore from Bay City who has
size and reputation. Elliott calls
him a good prospect, though he
is currently working out with the
fourth team.
Adding to Elliott's end selection
are sophomores Stan Kemp, Carl
Cmejrek and two Fette brothers,
Tom, and Bill, who hold positions
on the fourth and fifth teams.
With the alteration in the sub-
stitution rules which will enable
the coach to send in up to eleven
men when the clock is stopped and
two after each play, Elliott en-
visions a "considerable amount of
substitution at end."
While it is too early to make
any definitive prediction about
who will be playing when and
where, last year's performances
point toward Henderson and Kir-
by on offense and Conley and Las-
key on defense, with the other
players filling in at spot inter-

CAPTAIN JIM CONLEY catches his only touchdown of the 1963 season against 'Northwestern.
Mike Buckner of the Wildcats is in pursuit. Coach Bump Elliott considers Conley one of his stal-
warts at end, along with Bill Laskey, John Henderson, Craig Kirby, and Steve Smith.
Detroit, Toronto Win o Xtend Plyfs


By The Associated Press
DETROIT - The Detroit Red
Wings, fired up by a $500 fine
levied on Coach Sid Abel just
before game time, overpowered the
Chicago Black Hawks 7-2 last
games each.
The seventh and deciding game
will be played at Chicago Thurs-
day night.
National Hockey League Presi-
dent Clarence Campbell levied the
fine because of Abel's comments
following a disputed goal in the
3-2 game which Detroit lost at
Chicago Sunday night. The ac-
tion was announced just before the
team took the ice.
Abel's criticism of referee Frank
Udvari for allowing the disputed
goal cost him the $500, but the
Wings dominated play throughout,
as they hit the Black Hawks time
and time again, outscoring and
outroughing them.
Fast skating Norm Ullman turn-
ed in his second hat trick of the
series as he poured in three goals
in Detroit's lopsided victory. It was
the most goals the Black Hawks
had allowed in playofs since they
lost to Detroit 7-4 in the sixth and
deciding game of the semifinals
last year.
After the teams traded power

play goals in the opening period
with Ullman and Chicago's Kenny
Wharram scoring, Detroit broke
the game wide open with three
quick goals in the second period to
take a 4-1 lead. The Wings.had
things pretty much their own way
the rest of the game.
The 13,909 fans saw Detroit
goalie Terry Sawchuk, who has
been in and out of the hospital
Diver's Place.

two periods, turned the chores

man, who had scored twice on
Hall, showed no partiality as he
banged one past Dejordy.

TORONTO-Johnny Bower, To-
ronto's ageless goalie, slammed the
gates on Montreal last night and
the Maple Leafs trimmed the Ca-
nadians 3-0 to square their Stan-
ley Cup semifinal series at three
victories each.
Bower, listed as 39 but believ-
ed, to be closer to 45, smothered
25 Montreal shots and on Mc-
Kenney, Bobby Baun and -Andy
Bathgate provided the scoring
punch as the Leafs extended the
best-of-seven set to the limit.
The decisive game will be play-
ed at Montreal Thursday night.
McKenney, obtained with Bath-
gate from New York in February,.
gave Bower all the offensive sup-
port needed when he scored his
third goal of the series early in
the second period. The ex-Ranger
cashed in on his own rebound
after Canadiens' goalie Charlie
Hodge had stopped a long drive by
defenseman Allan Stanley.
Baun left the penalty box and
picked up a Stanley pass, then
broke in alone on Hodge to score
the second goal. The Toronto de-
fenseman connected 14 seconds
after completing a two-minute
sentence for tripping.
Bathgate capped the scoring ear-
ly in the -final period, convert-
ing passes from Bob Pulford and
Red Kelly.
CINCINNATI -The Cincinnati
Royals, with their backs to the
wall, broke a shooting slump last
night and topped the Boston'Cel-
tics 102-93, extending their Na-
tional Basketball Association East-
ern Division playoff final into at
least a fifth game.
Boston, aiming for its eighth
straight division championship,
won the first three games of the
best-of-seven series and could ave
wrapped it up yesterday. The fifth
game will be in Boston tomorrow.
Oscar Robertson, the league's
most valuable player, was amaz-
ing in pacing the Royals' attack.
He ended with 33 points and was
all over the floor in making as-
sists and stealing the ball from the
The Royals' victory was a team
efort. Jerry Lucas, Wayne Em-
bry and Jack Twyman were out-
The Celtics were ahead 49-46 at
halftime but Robertson and Twy-
man pushed the Royals into a
tie with 8:36 left in the third
quarter. That was at 53-all.
Later, Robertson hit a foul shot
and Tom Hawkins dumped in a
lay-up and the Royals went in_
front 62-59 with 5:09 to go in
the third period. The Royals bev-
er trailed from then on.
