Anthony, Rowser
Spark Scrimmage


Taking advantage of the unus-
ually fine Ann Arbor weather,
football coach Bump Elliott put,
his first four teams through a two
and one-quarter hour scrimmage
game yesterday.
Playing the first and fourth
string "blue" and "green" teams
against the - second and third
"white" and "gold" teams, Elliott
and a throng of 100 watched the
"blue" and "green" teams dom-
inate action and secure a 26-0
The four touchdowns scored by
the "blue" and "green" team were
split evenly between the squads,
two coming from the "blue" full-
back Mel Anthony on short plung-
es and one apiece by "green"
squad halfback James Sharl on a
one yard slant off right tackle and
Charles Dehling, "green" team
fullback, on a six yard dance.
The last regular scrimmage be-
fore the newly-scheduled inning
football game and the annual.


spring game served more to put
an emphasis on past observations
about this year's team rather than
bring up anything new.
Exciting Back
First of all, John Rowser once
again established himself as the
most exciting back in the spring
camp. Rowser picked up 42 yards
in six carries in addition to run-
ning away, laterally, from the
"blue" squad to free himself-for a
22-yd. kickoff runback. It was on
defense, however, that Rowser
really stood out with his aggres-
sive style of play.
The lack of a good "toe" con-
tinued to plague the team. On
kickoffs the boots repeatedly went
out of bounds, only two of the
four point-after attempts were
converted and, more annoying, the
punters could only amass a net
average of 25 yards per boot.
The ball exchanged hands seven
times ahead of schedule, three
times on fumbles, twice on inter-
ceptions and once on an attempt-
ed lateral from quarterback Bob
Timberlake to Rich Sygar which
Wayne Sparkman of the "gold"
team fell on.
Mel Anthony continued to look
like the answer to Michigan's full-
back question. Running the well-
known Wolverine "counter" play
Anthony was the key man on the
"blue" squad's attack.
Elliott singled out backs Row-
ser, Anthony and newcomer Sygar
for their play. On the line Elliott
was especially pleased with the
work of his ends Bill Laskey and
Ben Farabee and sophomore cen-
ter Tom Cecchini just recently
moved up to the first team. Also
singled out by Elliott was Steve
Smith, a refugeehfrom the basket-
ball court now playing tackle on
the second team.
No Injuries
Besides the usual bumps and
strains the game was not marred
with any injuries. End Jim Con-
ley, however, missed the game
with an injured wrist.
All squads moved the ball equal-
ly well despite the lopsided score.
It seems that such is the even-
ness of talent this year that no
matter how Elliott juggles the
squads the result will always be
two well-matched teams.

Notre Dame sophomore Raul

stroked some great shots down
the side stripes to stop Michigan's
number two man John Fraser, 6-3,

in five outings, having his trouble
with the big first serve.
Wolverine sixth man Ron Lin-
clau battled a marathon duel with
Ruben Carriero, but finally suc-
cumbed 3-6, 6-2, 9-7. The Mich-
igan junior led in the third set,
6-5, before Carriero picked up
three straight games.

serve into gear to even it up before

Notre Dame followed with another
game to put the score at 5-4.
Senkowski served up the next
game and personally smashed
away the first two points. Fraser
added two more on a pair of tricky
net -'shots, and the score was
knotted at five-all. The Wolver-
ines dropped the next one after
leading 40-15, and the Irish put
it on ice with a win after duece
in the next.
Lowe and Flood scored the de-
ciding victory, a Lowe service

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond in a two-part series dealing
with college hockey in the Midwest
area. Today's article examines the
future of the Western Collegiate
Hockey Association.)
Al Renfrew, hockey coach at
Michigan, sounded the bell of
doom for the Western Collegiate
Hockey Association as it now ex-
ists when he announced that the
Wolverines would not schedule
Denver and North Dakota next
season and that Michigan would
no longer give hockey scholarships
to Canadian players.
Renfrew's emphasis on Ameri-
can players has started-or, more
precisely, brought to light-a trend
toward exclusion of Canadians
from member teams of the WCHA.
Five of the seven teams, including
Michigan, are recruiting more and
more local talent.
Only two teams-Denver and
Michigan Tech-seem intent on
recruiting Canadians, but- for
widely different reasons. John
MacInnes, hockey coach at Michi-
gan Tech, feels an obligation to
support local hockey teams.
However, ii the Houghton area,
"local" refers to Canadians, resi-
dents of Michigan's Upper Penin-
sula, and Wisconsinites. "We have
an obligation to. support local
hockey. Here at Tech our prob-
lem is a little different than at-
say, Michigan or Michigan State,"
Maclnnes said.
"Because we are so close to the
border, a good portion of our stu-
dent body is Canadian and it
would be unfair to them to con-
centrate just on Americans.
"I was surprised, shocked, and
disappointed by Renfrew's move.
Of course, we\have an oblgation
to American hockey, but we also
have an obligation to our students
to present them with the best
players in each sport.
"And if this means using Cana-
dian players, then we will continue
to Po so-and do so gladly," Mac-
Innes concluded.
MacInnes also pointed out that
he would resign before he would
be forced to go into Minnesota or
other states not near Houghton to
recruit hockey players.
STheother school, Denver, will
continue its present recruiting of
players. Denver has always had a
majority of Caadians on the
Denver coach Murray Armstrong
does not feel that the wholesale
pull-out of Big Ten teams will
hurt Denver's schedule.

' "We are going to have a darn
good schedule and also a pretty
darn good hockey team. We will
play four games with North Da-
kota, four with Michigan Tech,
and, I think, four with Colorado
College. In addition, Minnesota-
Duluth is on our schedule, as well
as a single game with the Russian
Olympians and a pair with the al-
ways-colorful Canadian Olympic
team at home."
Other teams in the WCHA, how-
ever, are turning more toward
American players. Coach Barry
Thorndycraft of North Dakota
points to the fact that seven of 11
members on his freshman team

were American and .in, the future
years "will tend more and more
in that direction:'
President Louis T. Benezet re-
cently announced that Colorado
College hockey teams will, in the
future, be built around a nucleus
of American players. Amo Bessone,
coach at Michigan State, said that
he will continue present recruiting
practices-that is, the majority of
State players will be recruited from
the Michigan area.
"However," Bessone was quick
to add, "if a Canadian' boy is ell-
gible to play and wants to play
here, we won't turn him down."
John Mariucci, Minnesota hock-
'ey coach,- has long been an advo-
catecof American hockey and has
not used Canadians on his teams
for many years.
Reactions to the disintegration
of WCHA has run the gamut of
emotions, from disbelief in its in-
evitable death to an almost comi-
cal disdain.
"Who cares!" exclaimed Bes-
"As far as I am concerned, the
WCHA has been an outlaw league
for the past seven years,' he con-
"The WCHA has just been a
means to an end," added Mariucci.
"It hasvbeen a vehicle to keep
'hockey alive in the United States
until we develop our own leagues
and, teams."
"I don't think the WCHA is
dead," contradicted Throndycraft.
"Denver, Noth Dakota ,Michigan
Tech, and possibly Minnesota-
Duluth would make up the league."
"I definitely do not believe that
WCHA is dead, dying, or even near
death," reiterated MacInnes. "Of
course, it's a shame that Michigan
and Michigan State won't be play-
ing in it, -but the league won't fall
Five Left
"We will have a five team league
with Minnesota - Duluth. That
means that each team will play
16 games, which is a pretty good
schedule," he went on.
From all indications, however,
the WCHA will soon go the way
of the Western Intercollegiate
Hockey League, which fel by the
wayside in the early fifties.
Most coaches in the WCHA feel
that it was doomed from the start
simply because of the fact of the
mixture of the different confer-
ences with different recruiting
rules and different standards in
the schools. Another important
point was that there was no real
rivalry between the various schools
in the league.
No Rivalry
It' is true enough that there
was individual rivalry between dif-
ferent schools but not within the
whole league.
"When we played Denver, the
number one team in the league,"
said Bessone, "we hardly drew at
all. But when we played Michi-
gan-last in the league-we were
sold out. There was just no rivalry
between Denver and us.
"I'm sure that the fans would
rather see a highly spirited game
of only average quality rather
than a game with outstanding
players and no spirit," Bessone
One thing is certain, however.
.Michigan, Michigan State( and
Minnesota will never play in the
WCHA once the Big Ten hockey
league is formed. And the WCHA,
if it continues in its present form,
will still have to combat the same
problems and they can do nothing
but cause friction between the
member schools.
The WCHA' is not yet dead, but
now is the time to prepare for its
