Wolverines, Toronto To Clash at Cobo Hall
By ED HEISER
Tonight the Wolverine hockey
team will play the first of a two
game series in the newest hockey
rink in Michigan.
The Wolverines will travel to
Detroit's Cobo Hall to face the
Toronto Blues in the first hockey
game ever played in the modern
structure. Many dignitaries, in-
cluding Mayor Louis Miriani of
Detroit, will be on hand to see the
two teams do battle.
The game will also mark the
beginning of what is hoped will
be an annual affair at Cobo Hall.
Tonight, and each year after, the
winning team will be given pos-
session of a huge trophy to keep
until the following year's game.
The $200 trophy is in honor of
John Hettche, one of the found-
ers of amateur hockey. Hettche,
connected with many facets of the
sports world, was also the racing.
Beta's, Wenley Cop
commissioner of Detroit for some
This will mark only the third
time that a Michigan hockey team
has played in Detroit. On the two
previous times, the Wolverines
played at Olympia Stadium, once
against a visiting Russian team,
and once against the U.S. Olym-
pic hockey team.
Michigan has already played
Toronto on the Blues' home ice
and beat them 4-1. Wolverine
Coach Al Renfrew is not over-
confident, however, and he admits
"Toronto has a very fast line, and
(Bill) Kennedy and (Mike) Elik
are two of the best players we'll
face all season."
Michigan will probably start
with the same forward line that
has been so successful in the first
three games. Gordon Wilkie will be
at center with Ron Coristine and
Red Berenson at the wings. The
second line will have Bill Kelly,
Larry Babcock, and Tom Pendle-;
bury working together as a unify
while Gerry Kolb, John McGoni-
gal, Carl White and alternate Al
Hinnegan will be on the third
Kelly was especially instrumen-
tal in the last weekend's sweep of
the Michigan Tech series with his
persistent forechecking and all-
around good playing. Renfrew, to
say the least, was highly pleased
with his play.
Don Rodgers and Ross Morri-
son will start at the defensive po-
sitions although Coach Renfrew
is somewhat concerned with Rodg-
er's ailing wrist which was slight-
ly injured in the game last week.
Bob Gray will be the starting
The second game of the two
game series will be played on the
Wolverines' home ice. Last year,
the Blues ruined Michigan's home
opening by defeating them at the
No Soft Touch
Toronto played very well in the
game at Toronto, although Michi-
gan handed them their first de-
feat after two previous vetories.
The Wolverines will have their
hands full tonight as Toronto will
be out for revenge, especially in
the luxurious surroundings of Co-
bo Hall and with a trophy at

In the 123-lb. class, Theta Xi's
Al Black pinned Chuck Mathews
of Phi Kappa Psi for that title.
The 130-lb. crown went to Tau
Epsilon's Bob Blumberg over an
ADP representative, Bill Blessing.
The DU's dominated the 137-
lb. and the 147-lb. classes placing
three of the four men. In the for-
mer with DU facing DU, Tom
Casselman came out on top, best-
ing Gary Phipps. The third DU
was whipped by Jim Cross of ADP
in the latter class.
In the heavier classes, the 157,
167, and heavyweight, the Betas
made their showing, placing four
men in the six slots.
The 157-lb. match will be one
to remember, as two Betas, iden-
tical twins, Ron and Don Mac-
Ritchie tangled for the crown. The
boys chose not to reveal the win-
ner, however, and since they look
so much alike, they managed to
keep it secret, just who won. You

Question of Survival
I ALWAYS ENJOY covering a basketball game at Yost Field House.
It's not so much the game that keeps me alert, but rather the
wondering which is going to collapse first-one of the teams or the
ceiling. Normally, I'm not one to worry about fallout, except when
I'm sitting in the press box and the fallout is the beams that hold
the roof together.
Built in 1923 at the instigation of Fielding Yost, the Field
H ouse was the only one of its kind in the United States. Today,
38 years later, it still is. The difference now being nobody wants
one like it. If Yost were alive he'd probably rename it Angell Hall
or something. Being in the Field House is like watching House of
Dracula in'Three-D. Only here you don't even need glasses.
THE FIELD HOUSE was built as an all purpose structure. But I, for
one, still haven't found out what they are. It certainly wasn't
built for basketball. In 1923 the Michigan football team was the
champion of the West and the fast break was something you used only
sparingly during the after game party.
I'm not saying you, can't play basketball in it. Ohio State does it
every year. It's just that I don't want to have to be the one that has
to interview Dave Strack after a bat has deflected a swisher with 11
seconds left and the score tied.
Strack Has Problems . .
RIGHT NOW, THOUGH, Strack's problem isn't so much mammals
as it is trying to attract the more pituitary type of human ani-
mal. You know, the 7' guy who can stuff his opponent through the
mesh as well as the ball. And certainly, he isn't being helped in his
quest any by the dingy Field House environment. It's like bringing
your best girl over New Year's Day only to find the house hasn't been
cleaned from the night before.
Any basketball player who has the grades to enter Michigan,
is also qualified to enter any other school in the conference. The
question is after being shown the modern, spacious Field Houses
at several other Big Ten institutions will he want to come to
Michigan and spend his career in something that resembles a
cave in a B.C. cartoon?
STRACK IS A THIN LIPPED, straight jawed man who is dedicated
to bringing basketball respectability back to football oriented
Michigan. When he came from Idaho last year he inherited the most
inept team in Michigan basketball history. The 1959-60 team won
only one Big Ten game in 15 starts, and that one took a record 41
points by John Tidwell.
Not one to dodge a question, Strack is a welcome relief from tba
we're-Just-going-to-play-them-one-at-a-time type football coaches.
But when I asked him about the effects of Yost on his recruiting he
seemed unconvincing. "All I can say is that no one ever gave me that
as a reason for not coming to Michigan," he said.
"OF COURSE," he relented somewhat, "a new field house wouldn't
hurt my feelings any. I'd have to be out of my mind to say that a
new field house wouldn't help me," he continued. "If I had a show-
place I could push it (recruiting) a little more. But it's still difficult
to say if any boys were lost because of the field house."
The last thing Strack wants is for anyone to think he's making
excuses for his team. His club isn't going to win any titles this year
but it's not going to finish last either. And Strack even seems more
concerned about his responsibility to the students and public than
"I think one reason more of the public doesn't come to our
games is because of the facilities,"' he says. "But then again it's
my responsibility to give Michigan the kind of basketball team
that'll show we have inadequate seating."
. TELL THE TRUTH I like the newest Michigan coach. And I'd
like to see what he could do without the ball and chain tied to his
foot. I can imagine a weaker-willed man might find himself out in
the middle of Ferry Field about midnight after every loss. First he'd
look at the stadium and then at Yost Field House. Then he'd just sit
down in the snow and cry.
Michigan used to be a leader athletically. I don't mean always
a winner necessarily, but in innovation and improvement of facili-
ties. Now it seems to be a follower. I guess this classifies me as a
liberal but I kind of favor equality. I mean let's let the basketball
and track teams sit in the front of the bus too.
But somebody up there is going to have to do it. I haven't got
enough green stamps.

CHICAGO-The Big Ten knock-
ed the controversial "need fac-
tor" out of a new financial aid-
to-athletes policy yesterday, sub-
stituting an academic achievement
level that should do much to re-
duce flunk-out losses.

action at the conference's annual
winter meetings, which are ex-
pected to be climaxed tomorrow
by a 6-4 vote favoring renewal of
Rose Bowl football contract nego-
tiations with the West Coast's Big
Marcus L. Plant of Michigan,
secretary and spokesman for the
facultymen, said of yesterday's ac-
tion: "The general feeling now
is that it will be easier to recruit
with the need factor removed. A
lot of facultymen also feel there
is a strengthening of the aca-
Football coaches mainly have
long opposed grants based on
need, which are determined on a
family's financial status. They
contend it hampered recruiting
and threw the area open to poach-
ing by outside schools.
However, in order to remove
the need factor, the package deal
included more stringent scholast-
ic standards for a majority of
Big Ten schools.' Some coaches
don't like that, and even a few
have indicated they would just as
soon have the need factor than
what finally they got.
To be eligible under the new fi-
nancial aid plan, a freshman must
show a combination of high
school rank and test score which
predicts an ability to achieve a 1.7
grade point average in his college
work during his first year.
Maximum aid remains as the
cost of board, room, books, tuition
and fees. This is more restrictive
than the NCAA program which
provides for these items plus $15
a month for incidentals.
Considering eligibilities, the fac-
ulty representatives ruled that
they would be changed to allow
an athlete to continue to partici-
pate if his average is good.
In another decision the board
chose not to increase the sizeof
