Good on Defense
Another plus factor for the
Hawkeyes is their defense. They
have probably as good a defensive
team as there is in the Big Ten
in the opinion of Jorgenson. Their
defensive play was one of the rea-
sons why Iowa finished in a sec-
ond place tie in the conference
last season.
Michigan has a rough game this
Saturday with Ohio State, the
best team in the country, but
Jorgenson doesn't feel that the
Michigan team will be too tired out
from the trip to beat Iowa Mon-
day. The Hawkeyes will also have
trouble this Saturday when they

NEW YORK (P)-The Amateur
Athletic Union accused the na-
tion's colleges yesterday of failing
to cooperate in the attempt t o
build up a representative gymnast-
ics team in the United States.
In a formal statement, the AAU
said a group of college coaches
were issuing misstatements in an
attempt to wrest control of the
sport from the AAU.
Seek Separate Organization
The AAU said six college coach-
es, headed by Gene Wettstone of
Penn State, are seeking to set up
a separate organization under Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion (NCAA) jurisdiction.
This is part of the giant tug-of-
war between the AAUU and NCAA
for control of amateur athletics.
Refuse To Change
A spokesman for the AAU said
the colleges refuse to change their
rules in gymnastics to conform
with international regulations. As
a result, the spokesman ┬░added,
college gymnasts are at a disad-
vantage in trying out for inter-
national and Olympic teams.
The NCAA and AAU have six
representatives each on the Olym-

counter as a result of their lack
of depth at defense. Renfrew
skated only three defensemen in
the game, and found himself in
trouble when one of them, Ross
Morrison, was lost for 12 minutes
because of a minor penalty and a
misconduct. The other two, de-
fensemen, Don Rodgers a n d
Wayne Kartusch were forced to
skate the entire 12-minute period
without a break.
Nonetheless, CC failed to score.
New Playoff Rule
A new rule will go into effect
in this year's WCHA playoffs.
They will be held at the largest
rink of the top four teams. Of the
top four teams to date, Michigan
and Minnesota have the largest
rinks, and, according to Renfrew,
the playoffs will be held at one of
the two colleges.
S * *
Except for a charley-horse in-
curred by Larry Babcock, no oth-
er injuries have been reported by
Renfrew. The team will have
scheduled practices three days a
week during the exam period.

Even though the Big Ten last
spring lifted a one-year confer-

Another prime development at
the NCAA's 56th annual conven-
tion was a recommendation by the
American Football Coaches Asso-
ciation (AFCA) calling for dras-
tic changes in construction of
football helmets in the wake of a
1961 season in which 37 grid
fatalities were recorded.
In all, the coaches' group ap-
proved four items, including use
of two wild card substitutes (one
now is allowed). In this connec-
tion, the coaches also voted to
strike a rules clause which "de-
plores" use of substitutes to con-
vey plays from the bench.
