Icemen Choose Martin for Captain'

'M' Front Line Marred'
By Graduation Losses

Wilfred Martin, third leading
scorer on this year's NCAA
Championship hockey team, was
announced ,as the captain of the
1964-65 squad last night.
"it is really a great feeling to
be chosen captain by .your team-
mates," gasped Martin upon hear-
ing of the hockey team's selection.
Coach Al Renfrew called Mar-
tin "a great leader and hockey
player. He had. a terrific sopho-
more year. In fact, it would have
been hard for him to have a bet-
ter season.
"He was a producer of many
key goals (totalling 31) this sea-
son. He scored our first one
against Denver in the NCAA
Championship game and that
gave the team a big boost.
"Two games that Martin play-
ed stand out in my mind-the first
game that we played Michigan

time. Although our team may not
be as well rounded next year, I
am really looking forward to next
Captain Wilkie MVP
Also announced was the naming
of this year's captain Gordie Wil-
kie as 1963-64 Most Valuable
Player. Of Wilkie, Renfrew said,
"You just don'thfindhboys more
deserving of this honor than
Wilkie; a native of Regina, Sas-
katchewan, broke his own record
for assist this year with a season
total of 46, breaking Red Beren-
son's standard of 43 which was
set in the 1961-62 season.
Wilkie, along with Tom Polonic,
was chosen to the West All-
America team by the American
Hockey Coaches Association this
winter. In addition, "Gord" was
named to the WCHA All-Star
team, and the NCAA All-Tourna-
ment team.
Wilkie was the top scorer in
the WCHA during the regular
conference schedule with 30
The championship team placed
four in the top six conference
scorers with Butler second behind
Wilkie, and Martin fourth and
Polonic sixth.
The Wolverines' 12-2-0 confer-
ence record gave them an .857
percentage, and their overall rec-
ord of 21-3-0 figured to an amaz-
ing .875.

CAPTAIN-ELECT WILF MARTIN sneaks the puck past the
goalie into the corner of the cage for one of the 31 scores he
tallied this year. The aggressive center was chosen by his team-
mates at their banquet last night. He is the fourth center in as
many years to receive the honor.

Navy Recruits for 21 Sports

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
second of a series of articles analyz-
ing the 1964 Michigan football team
position by position.
When he came to Michigan this
spring, line coach Tony Mason was
given what is equivalent to a
bucket with two large holes in it'
which have to be plugged before
next fall.
This bucket is the Michigan
forward wall-the interior line.
When Joe O'Donnell and Tom
Keating graduated they "pulled
out all the stops" as they left.
"The lines in the Big Ten will be
tougher now that we can pla-
toon," says head coach Bump El-
liott. And this is what the con-
cern is about.
Nothing Definite
Neither Elliott nor Mason have
made any decisions about posi-
tions as yet but. Chuck Ruzicka
and Jerry Mader hold down the
tackle posts on the top-rated Blue
team. Mader, a junior, and Ru-
zicka, a sophomore, are both let-
termen and are both noted for
their drive.
Sophs Chuck Kines and Tom
Mack are the listed tackles for
the Wolverine White team. Kines,
a 230-pounder, played under line
coach Mason at Niles McKinley
High School in Ohio and was very
impressive as a freshman.
"We've converted Mack and
(Dennis) Flanagen to the line
this year," says Elliott. These two
are former ends who were changed
because of the abundance of
talent at that position. "But you
can never say that you have too
many ends," adds Elliott.
"Mack has shown terrific abil-
ity so far," said coach Mason.
"We're looking for speed and
Yearby Established
Of course, anyone looking for
a starting position at tackle will
have to reckon with soph Bill
Yearby. The 220-pound tackle,
now out for track, distinguished
himself in last fall's campaign. He
is respected for his power and
speed. "We're counting on him to
go both ways," comments Mason.
At the guards, the Blue team
lists veterans Dave Butler and
Rich Hahn. Hahn, a junior, play-
ed regularly last season, showing
great power.
Bill Keating, Tom's younger
brother, a reserve in the fall, is
also out for a guard position. The
other guard on the White team is
John Marcum, a junior who
played on the second team last
Brian Patchen, who showed his
ability in the clutch last fall when
regular center Tom Cecchini was
sidelined with a leg injury, is a
prime candidate for the position
this year.

As for Cecchini, "His knee has
healed real well and he is now
working out both ways," says
Elliott. The sophomore also star-
red as middle linebacker before
his injury. He is expected to work
both ways.
But Mason says not to count
anyone else out of the picture.
"The freshman have possibilities
and we're going to give them all
a chance. It's hard to make a de-
cision now.
Frank Nunley is one who de-
serves a special look. The 6' 1"
former fullback has shown great
capabilities as a center as well as
linebacker. Others of the new
crop who will be checked out are
tackles Jim Hribal, Henry Cart-
wright and Pat McAleer, and
guards Steve Yatchak and Bill
Platoons Stronger
As for the effect of the platoon
system Elliott says, "So far we're
training players. There won't. be
any specialization yet." Mason
adds, "It's too early in the spring
to tell.
"I'm really impressed by the go-
go attitude they show. Even
though I don't know all of their
names, I listen for the pop when
they hit."
When will the final decisions
be made so that the left side of
the line, vacated by O'Donnell
and Keating, will be filled? Ma-
son thinks that he has to see
more contact before he can de-
cide that, but the eyes may not
have it. It may be the ears that
are the deciding factor. "I want
to hear how they hit," he says.

-when we have the puck in our
zone he really shines.
"As I said before, Martin has
the potential to become one of
the greatest goal scorers in Mich-
igan hockey history," said Ren-
frew yesterday.
"The Fox," as he is affection-
ately called by his teammates,
played center on the Hood-Mar-
tin-Dechaine line, all of whom
will be back next year.
"It is interesting to note," Ren-
frew pointed, out,,"that our last
four captains have all been cen-
ters-Berenson, Babcock, Wilkie,
and now Martin."
A native of Mallaig, Ontario,
Martin is enrolled in the School
of Education where he is consid-
ering a major in French.
Very Optimistic
The center, who was third in
total team scoring behind Wilkie
and Gary Butler, looks forward
to another good season next year.
"Although," Martin said, "we
will be losing several key players
such as goalie Bob Gray, Rog Gal-
hpeau, 1Wilkie, andButler among
others, we will still have two good
forward lines. Our defense, which
we thought was going to be our
weak point this season, played
real well all season. Everyone on

ANNAPOLIS, Md., (P)-Navy,
which operates one of the largest
intercollegiate sports programs in
the country, has a recruiting sys-
tem to match it.
The system brings into the Na-
val Academy each year some 300
midshipman-athletes, making up
approximately one-fourth of a
plebe class of 1,200.
They are chosen for their po-
tential as students and future
naval officers as well as their
sports ability, but the emphasis on
athletics is heavy. They will pro-
vide the muscle for Navy to com-
pete in 21 varsity sports, ranging
from football to dinghy sailing.
Occasionally among them will
be a superstar. Twice within the
past four years Navy has had the
top football player in the country
-quarterback Roger Staubach, the
Heisman Trophy winner last year,
and halfback Joe Bellino, who won
it in 1960.
"They just don't -walk through
the door," says Capt. William S.

Busik, Navy's director of athletics.
"We'd be dead competively with-1
out a good recruiting system."
"We start out each year with
about 1,600 potential candidates,"
Capt. Busik says. "The bird dogs
cut this list down to about 600,
