the Wolverine captain has scored 18 goals.
Sta er Fears Mighty Indiana



If Michigan swimming coach

dds are they would be
1) That he could keep ahree All

2) That he could use some of

3) That he could wake up this
Saturday after the Big Ten Relays
and find that Indiana is just a
bad dream.
Good Team
It's too bad, because even though
Stager has 16 lettermen and a
strong team coming back this year,
his first two wishes wouldn't do
him much good unless the last one
came true too.
Indiana coach Jim Councilman
is boosting his team as the best
in- the history of intercollegiate
swimming, and who's to argue?
Stager just shakes his bead.
"They're so deep they could lose
their top men and still not 1be in
trouble," he commented.

The Michigan hockey team went
into the Christmas vacation with
an unblemished 5-0 record and
this weekend they will put a per-
fect 10-0 record on the line when
they visit Michigan Tech for a
two game series.
When the thousands of students
were leaving Ann Arbor the Wol-
verines managed to polish off
North Dakota, 5-2 and 6-1. Then
after a break of more than a
week the Michigan sextet traveled
to Troy, New York to participate
in the Rensselear Poly Christmas
Wins Tourney
Again Michigan came through,
winning the tourney via three
straight victories. In the opening
game a scrappy Yale contingent
gave Michigan its toughest battle
of the Tourney; the score was 4-3.
McGill yeilded next by an over-
whelming 10-1 margin, and RPI
was polished off in the third game,
Did Michigan have an excep-
tional star? The answer is most
assuredly, yes. Captain Red Beren-
son stole the show. The redhead
scored 13 goals in the five games,
including four in the last two
Tourney games. He scored three in
the North Dakota series, and two
against Yale in the RPI opener.
Coach Al Renfrew was naturally
very pleased with his team's rec-
ord. "This is the best start that
any team I have ever coached has
had," he said. Renfrew went into
this season-with a 44-48-3 record
for four previous season's with
Michigan. He is now a winning
Will Tell Story
"This coming series will tell the
story," said Renfrew, "they (Tech)
are really going to be tough on
their own ice."
After losing a two game series
to Michigan at Ann Arbor the
Huskies have compiled six straight
wins. They took .Denver twice at
Houghton; they defeated Toronto
twice; and their most recent feat
is their double win again over
Denver but this time at Denver.

Michigan finished the meet with
43 points, most of which were tal-
lied by Corriere, the lone Wolver-
ine to take an individual crown.

The Michigan basketball team is
becoming a favorite from coast to
coast, much to the displeasure of
Coach Dave Strack.
Case in point-South Carolina
arrived in Ann Arbor for the
fourth and last game of its road
trip, having already lost the first
three (one to Michigan State).
The host Wolverines made their
visitors a present of the game-
blowing a ten-point lead in the
final two minutes to lose 70-68.
Stepping Stone
Case in point - Oregon State
used Michigan as its first stepping
stone to the Far West Classic
championship with an easy 89-54
victory. The 89 points represented
a school and tournament record.
Case in point: Portland, host
team for the Classic, disappointed
its fans with two losses until it
ventured upon the Wolverines.
Portland survived a last-minute
push by the Wolverines, won 69-63
and finished seventh in the eight-
team field. Michigan, with the
Oregon State defeat and a 76-67
loss to California already on rec-
ord, was doomed to the cellar.
2-7 Overall Mark
It all added up to a four-game
holiday losing streak and a 2-7
overall record. All this and the
Big Ten season opens Saturday.
In all fairness, the Oregon State
debacle was the only game the
Wolverines have been completely
out of this year. The fact that
Michigan reserved its worst shoot-
ing performance of the year for
the Classic had a lot to' do with the
triple loss. "We shot 35, 31, and
32 per cent in the three games,"
Strack sighed. "We missed a lot
of shots from 15 feet and closer
that we should be making. This
club has to shoot around 40 per
cent to do any good."
Missed Shots
"We worked hard to set up the
shots and then missed them," he
The Wolverines might have won
the South Carolina and Portland
games with a better performance
in the last two minutes of the
"We just blew it," Strack said
of the South Carolina game. "I
just didn't think it could happen
to this club, but there it was."
Against Portland, the Wolver-
ines used a press and tied the
game at 63-63 with less than two
minutes left,abut then Tomn Cole
couled out and Portland added
the final six points. The loss to
Oregon State was no disgrace,
since the Ducks rolled over every-
body without much effort.
Cantrell Bright Spot
There was a flickering bright
spot in the Coast games, however,
as guard Bob Cantrell showed
signs of shaking his early season
scoring slump. Cantrell was high
scorer in the California game with
17 and added 15 against Portland.
John Oosterbaan, the team's

leading scorer, totaled only 21
points in the first two losses, but
rebounded with 23 against Port-
Strack also got some good news
yesterday with the return to prac-
tice of Bob Brown and Hiram
Jackson. Brown's ankle is still
heavily taped but may be able to
see action against Illinois on Sat-
urday. Jackson practiced for the
first time since his knee was taken
out of a cast.
Facing the Big Ten season is not
a pleasant prospect for the Wol-
verine mentor. Michigan is the
losingest Big Ten team so far this
season and many of the other
teams have been very impressive.
The only other club with a losing
record is Minnesota with a 4-5

as the Wolverine -mentor com-
mented, "It's still early to tell
what these boys will do, but the
competition did them good."
