TORONTO - The defending
champion Toronto Maple Leafs
fought off Montreal 3-2 last night
and took a 2-0 lead in their best-
of-7 semifinal Stanley Cup play-
off series in the National Hockey
Dave Keon's goal, the first of
the playoffs for the 23-year-old
center, broke a 2-2 tie at 16 min-
utes, 35 seconds of the middle
period after some excellent penal-
ty killing had turned back a ma-
jor Montreal opportunity.
The third period was scoreless,
although it took some sharp work
by Toronto's aging goalie Johnny
Bower to withstand the Montreal
The third and fouth games will
be played in Montreal Saturday
and Tuesday. Toronto won the
opener 3-1.
Allen Stanley brought the crowd
of 14,007 to its feet with a go-
ahead goal for Toronto early in
the middle period with a shot
from the blueline. The puck was
inadvertently deflected by Mon-
treal's John Gauthier.
Montreal matched it 3 minutes
later on young Terry Harper's
first playoff goal, but then blew
a major opportunity when Toron-
to's Bob Pulford and Tim Horton
went off with penalties only 13
seconds apart.
The Toronto penalty killers
were so effective, that the Cana-
diens could get off only one shot
while holding a two-man advan-
tage for a minute and 47 seconds.
CHICAGO - Scoring four of
their goals on power plays, the
Chicago Black Hawks hammered
the penalty-plagued Detroit Red
Wings 5-2 last night for a 2-0 lead
in their best-of-7 semifinal series
in the National Hockey League
Stanley Cup playoffs.
Detroit drew .12 penalties for a
total of 27 minutes, including a
5-minute major by Bruce Mac-
Gregor, who slashed Bobby Hull,
breaking the scoring ace's nose
and opening a cut which took 10
stitches to close. The Wings now
face the task of winning at home
or bowing out of the series.
The next two games will be
'played in Detroit Sunday and
Tuesday with the series return-
ing to Chicago next Thursday, if
Red Hay scored two of the Chi-
cago goals while Hull, Stan Mikita
and Ab McDonald came through
with the others.
Vic Stasiuk put Detroit ahead
1-0 in the first period at 10:54 but
before the Wings were to cash in
again in the third period on a
goal by Gordie Howe, Chicago had
moved ahead 5-1.
It was ,a scintillating game from
start to finish despite the lopsid-
ed score. The crowd of 15,987 got

on Detroit's Howie "Bad Boy"
Young shouting "we want Young."
Young, in turn, opened his arms
to the crowd in a "What have I
done?" gesture.
Chicago drew eight penalties for
16 minutes and Detroit's Norm
Ullman was given a 10-minute
penalty for misconduct in addi-
tion to the other string of calls'
which constantly kept the Wings

Robertson, the "Big 0" who

Hockey Career


Gordie Wilkie has been playing
organized hockey for 14 years and
is now beginning to reap some of
the benefits of his years of hard
Wilkie was elected captain for
the '63-'64 hockey season by his.
teammates. Other than receiving
his hockey scholarship to Mich-
igan Wilkie believes that this was
his biggest thrill.
"I started playing for the Mite
B's when:I was eight,' Wilkie re-
called, "It was a team in the Parks
League - they have a real good
hockey league there.
Moved Up
"After two years for the "B"
team, I moved up to the 'Mite
A's.' The age limit was 14 so after
another two years, I Joined the
Bantam team. That was when I
started in the Pats chain," he con-
41 played for two years with
the bantams and then moved up
to the midget team. When I was
17, I joined the Juniors."
Going to School
During this time, Wilkie was
also going to school. He attended
Regina Central Collegiate and
then went to Regina College for a
year. The next year he spent work-
ing before receiving the offer
from Michigan hockey coach Al
Renfrew to come to Michigan.
"The first year I played for the
Juniors-the 157-'58 season- we
went all the way to the Memorial
Cup finals," Wilkie related., "We
played something like 84 games
that year. I played with people
like Bill Hicks, Red Berenson and
Terry Harper-they're all playing
for the Montreal Canadiens now.
In the finals we played against
fellows like J. C. and Gilles Trem-
blay and Ralph Backstrom-also
'M Stars
Wilkie also played with such
former Michigan stars as B ill
Kelly, Joe Lunghammer, John
Palenstein and Jerry Kolb. Don
Rodgers was also a teammate of
Wilkie's when he was on the jun-
ior team.
Another teammate that Wilkie
remembers-and with good cause
--is Gary Butler.
"I've played with Gary for about
ten years, I guess, so when we're
on the ice together it's just like
old times. I know all his moves
and he knows all mine, so we can
play pretty well together.
"In my last year in the juniors
I got 96 points on 65 assists and
31 goals."
One Sport Man
Wilkie was a one sport man for
most of his career. However, he
did make an attempt at playing
baseball. But he had one defect,
and he stopped playing.
"I used to play first base," he
claims. "But I wasn't too good a
rInner-speed-wise-so I gave it
rap." It's a good thing he decided

Association, to. finish second in
scoring. Berenson finished ahead
of him with 41 points. Wilkie was
also second to Berenson in team
scoring with 55 points.
This past season, Wilkie, along
with the rest of the, Michigan
team, had a big come-down. He
finished in a tie for fith place
with George Hill of Michigan
Tech. Both players had 24 points
but Wilkie had seven goals and 17
assists to Hill's 11 counters and
13 helpers. For the season, Wilkie
had 10 goals and 24 assists. He
didn't try to make any excuses
for his poor showing or that of
the rest of the team, either.
"We just weren't skating right.
I don't know exactly what it was.
Al did his best but we just didn't
help him out. I guess after drop-
ping those first few games, we
just seemed to lose all interest in
winning and everything. And
then when Bobbie (Gray) got
hurt, everything seemed to go.
Poor Schedule
"Our schedule didn't help much
either. I couldn't think of a worse
schedule to have. We had three
weeks off for Christmas and then
came back and played a couple of
games. And then we had another
three week lay-off for semester
break. For myself, I didn't even
put the skates on during exams.
I had to hit the books to keep my
marks up and just couldn't afford
to do any skating. Fortunately, I
came out all right."
The mention of the poor sched-
ule and lack of practice brought
Wilkie to a sore spot with him-
the freshman year for a college
hockey player.
"The freshman, year is really
useless. You go to practice, but you
don't play any games. Pretty
soon you're tired of practice and
you stop coming. In my freshman
year, we had only five guys out. !
After a few weeks we stopped hav-
ing practices. What can five guys

5-man team to Iowa City April 26
and 27 to compete for the Big Ten
Union Bowling Championship.
Preliminary qualifying lines must
be bowled by April 6.
For further information see Mr.
Roopus at the Bowling Alley.

"You really get to hate hockey.
Doing nothing for a year really
sours your disposition and you
don't care about anything. I hope
they change that rule."
The mention of a rule change
led Wilkie to another diatribe this
time on the WCHA rules.
"I think they should have
checking all over the ice, it makes
for a better game and would pre-
pare us more for the National
League if we wanted to-play there:
With this rule a player has the
tendency to lower his head be-
cause he knows no one will check
him. But if we had checking all
over the ice, we'd learn to keep our
heads up and play more alert
Long Passes
"I like the long passes," Wilkie
said. "It makes for a much more
exciting game. I'm sure the fans
like to see the players streak down
the ice and pick up a long pass
for a break-away."
One always like to forget about
a bad thing, so Wilkie passed over
last season and started to talk
about next year's prospects.
"We should have a good team
next year, though our defensive
corps will be a little weakened.
We only have Tom Pollonick com-
ing up as a defenseman, but we
have a lot of forwards available
for next year.
Regina Boy
"There's Alex Hood-a Regina
boy, who plays wing and should
help us a lot. Then we have Pierre
Dechaine, another forward, and
Wilf Martin, a center.
"Barry MacDonald is another
promising freshman. He plays for-
ward, but if we're stuck for de-
fensemen he will do a capable
job. It's hard to tell about these
guys, though. You know, they
haven't played for a year and the
stuff they do during the practices
doesn't tell a thing about what
they do in the games."

House of Southern Cal, who fin-I
ished third, set the former record
in qualifying earlier in the day.
The event is new this year.

We went to the mountain to

miles between major
chassis lubrications
Quite a task faced Ford Motor Company
engineers when they set out to eliminate the
traditional trip to the grease rack every
1,000 miles.
Like Mohammed, they went to the mountain--
Bartlett Mountain on the Continental Divide in
Colorado. More molybdenite is mined there
than in the rest of the world combined. And
from molybdenite ore comes the amazing
"moly" grease that helps extend the chassis
lubrication intervals for Ford-built cars. This
grease sticks tenaciously to metal, stands up
under extreme pressures and resists moisture,
pounding and squeezing. It is slicker than
skates on ice!
New, improved seals were developed. Bushings,
bearings and washers of many materials were
investigated. Slippery synthetics, like nylon
and teflon, were used a number of new ways.
The search for means to extend chassis lubri-
cation also led to New Orleans-where
experimental suspension ball joints tested in
taxicabs in regular service went two years
without relubrication.
It took time. And ingenuity. But the effort paid
off when Ford-built cars were the first to build
in chassis lubrication good for 30,000 miles or
two years-whichever came first.

"Ford First" and another example of how Ford
