Butterfly Duel Yields Record

MAN in #4Jtkn

Syracuse Wins Playoff Tilt

"I didn't expect to do as well as
did," commented Dave Gillan-
rs, recalling his record-breaking
0- and sub-two minute 200-yard
tterfly performances at the Big
n championship meet held
:arch 3 and, 4 at Columbus.
Although Dave is a hard worker
d had been concentrating on
e Big Ten meet, his times the
evious week did not indicate the
emendous showing, he would
ake in both the 200-and 100-yd.
"Mike Troy made the differ-
ce," explained Dave. The com-
Aition with Indiana's star but-
rfly man, Mike Troy, afforded
.e extra incentive that sparked

Dave's new American, Big Ten,
and world record performance in
the 100-yd. butterfly.
Gillanders' :53.0 clocking in the
100-yard event eclipsed the old
mark of :53.1 previously held by
Troy. Dave's 1:58.4 in the 200 is
the second-fastest.ever swam for
the event. Troy's 1:58.0 in the
same race is the pool, Big Ten, and
NCAA record in the event.
Coach Stager was, of course,
proud of Gillanders' showing, at
Columbus. He is cautiously hope-
ful of even better performances at
Seattle in the NCAA and at New
Haven in the NAAU meet.
Gillanders frankly admits that
he performs best when he is faced

with top-notch competition. He
should get just that at both Seat-
tle and New Haven from the many
fine butterfly men swimming for
Southern California, notably
Olympian Lance Larson.
'A' Student
Dave's recent triumph over
Troy, whom he had not defeated
since the 1959 Pan - American
Games, came as the result of a
great deal of hard work. Besides
the usual afternoon workout, Dave
tries to swim in the mornings or
evenings. He maintains an "A"
academic average, which is all the
more remarkable considering the
time Dave spends practicing.
The senior electrical engineering
major first became interested in
swimming at a YMCA camp. He,
like most beginning swimmers,
concentrated on the crawl. How-
ever, it was not until Gillanders'
sophomore year at Royal Oak
Dondero High School that he
swam butterfly, his specialty.
His only attempt at seriously
swimming other strokes was a
brief flirt with. the 150-yd. indi-
vidual medley event in high school.
Since that time, Dave has exclu-
sively swim butterfly.
"Coach Stager has been a great
help to me with his superb knowl-
edge of swimming and his almost
infinite patience," remarked Gil-
"Although I was hoping to beat
Troy, I didn't think that I would
win the 100. I am primarily a dis-
tance man, whereas Troy is best
known for his sprint ability.
"I was reasonably sure that I
could go the 200 under two min-
utes, but I did not have similar
assurance in the 100," commented
Gillanders. I
In fact, Gillanders has repeated-
ly been beaten by Michigan cap-
tain Frank Legacki in the 100-yd.
The modest senior will be work-
ing hard in the coming weeks to
try to better his existing record in
the 100-yd butterfly.
He also has his eye on Troy's
record in the 200. A victory in the
NCAA meets would be a fitting
climax to his great collegiate

Nice Guys DO WinE
MONDAY AFTERNOON at 3:00, hockey manager Chuck Wreford1
was on duty as usual in the locker room of the Michigan Coliseum.
Usually at 3 p.m. the room is a noisy confusion of sweatshirts, skates,'
pads and 20-plus players getting ready for practice.
But Monday, Chuck was a lonely figure in an empty room-1
quietly packing the jersies away for their annual trip to the mothballs.
He looked up, "No, Al hasn't been here all afternoon. There wasn't
much reason for him to come down."
He was right there. The season ended last weekend. It ended on a
somewhat sour note, with the Wolverines dropping a ttal-goal series
to Minnesota, 6-4, losing the right to play in the NCAA playoffs in
No, there wasn't much reason for Al to come to the rink.
Despite the unhappy ending, the story of the 1960-61 hockey
season was a fairly cheerful one. It was the story of a man and an
The man? Allan M. Renfrew. The ambition? To bring Michigan
hockey back to the level it enjoyed in the late 40's.
Michigan hockey has a colorful history. It includes more than its
share of national championships and the all-time Wolverine per-(
centage of ice wins is still tops in the west. Renfrew played in the
days when that record was in the making.-
Lettering in 1946,7,8,9, Renfrew played on teams that compiled a1
68-17-6 mark, and in his senior campaign, the Wolverines won 19,1
lost one, and tied three. This single-season percentage stood as an
all-time high until this year's Denver powerhouse rewrote the record
Renfrew got used to winning.a
After stints as head coach of Michigan Tech (where he turned
an also-ran into a league contender) and North Dakota, his alma,
mater called him back-called him back to some hard times.
Then started a four-year rebuilding program that finally paid off,
this season.
A Profie ..*.
ENFREW likes to win. Sure,'all coaches do, but not many of them
lose 20 pounds through a season, worrying for weeks ahead of time
and refusing to eat anything except an occasional egg on game nights.'
Maybe this season's wrap-up was disheartening, but the fact
remains that after four years, Renfrew brought home a winner.
During the regular season, the Wolverines posted a 16-9-1 mark,
far outstripping last season's 12-12 record, Renfrew's previous best.
Coaching any college team is a tough task. Coaching a team made
up of former Canadian junior players that can't be coached-they
know it all already-is an even tougher one. The college hockey coach
has to be first a recruiter, then a personnel administrator and some-
times a father. If you go by the record, Renfrew makes the grade.
Everyone has a weakness. Renfrew's is that he's too easy-going.,.
He didn'thave to schedule Denver four times, but he wanted Ann
Arbor puck-fans to have a chance at seeing the best team. in the
country. As a result, the Wolverines are sitting home this weekend.
But you can't help admiring him for it.
He has continually fought what may be a losing battle to keep
restrictions out of the league rules that would limit the number of
Canadians allowed to play hockey here. He calls it "prejudice" and
knows only too well what it can mean to a Canadian youth to have
the opportunity of an American education. He had his chance, others
should have a chance too.
And a Father ....
ASIDE of the cigar-smoking coach that most fans don't see is his
Arole as "father" to his team. It sounds sort of strange to call him
a "father' of a bunch of 21-year-olds, many of whom have children
of their own (that would make him a grandfather, wouldn't it?).
But he's even played that role. Halfway through the '59-'60 sea-
son, he lost a handful of players because of scholastic ineligibilities.
One of them was in very real danger of being forced to leave school.
In a minute, Al was on the phone, pleading that the boy be given
a chance to get his grades up. He felt as close to this boy as if he was
his own son, Renfrew told the voice on the other end of the line-he
didn't even care if he ever played another minute of hockey, just
give him a chance to go to school.
A handful of us in the room kidded him after the call was com-
pleted, telling him what a ham he was.
The funny thing was-he meant it.
The school gave Al's "son" another chance. In one semester he
made up his deficient honor points with some to spare. He's playing
hockey again, but more important to Al-he'll be getting his degree.
Out of Denver comes a note from Don Smith, the Pioneer infor
mation director: "We feel that we are definitely at the end of an
era, as far as the so-called 'super' type of team that we have this
year . .. Coach Armstrong feels that your Michigan team will be the
team to beat next year."
For the sake of Coach Renfrew, we hope Armstrong is right.
Another winning season-this time topped by an NCAA crown-

25-24 last night in the I-M Build-
ing to gain the finals of the Social
Fraternity "A" basketball first
place playoffs.
Led by varsity gridders Joe
O'Donnel and Bill Freehan, SAE'
jumped off to an early 10-0 lead
and after that the score was never
close as the pair repeatedly scored
on easy lay-ups and short jump
Freehan ended up with 18 points1
and O'Donnell had 16, while domi-
nating both the offensive and de-1
fensive backboards for victorious1
Phi Gam had a much more dif-

Jim Burns had led the Fiis to
a 15-7 half-time lead, but a late
free throw pulled the Psi U's to a
21-2 1 tie only to have them lose
on Lyons' two-pointer.
After the score was 21-all, Phi
Gam took a two-point lead only to
have Psi U tie the score again, but
then Lyons' field goal put the
game on ice.
In the semi-finals of the second-
place playoffs, Delta Tau Delta
downed Sigma Alpha Mu 52-38
after the Sammies had taken a
21-18 half - time lead on the
strength of Art Bartner's 18
However, Lars Anderson sparked
the Delts' comeback with 19 points,
eight in the second half to enable
them to reach the second-place
It was the Delts' height that
made the difference as 6'8" Dana
Baldwin contributed 10 points,
controlled the boards and blocked
many SAM shots to lead his team's
defensive effort.
In other fraternity action, Phi
Kappa Psi defeated Tau Delta Phi
49-29; Delta Sigma Phi downed
Theta Chi, 45-25; and Chi Phi
whipped Alpha Sigma Phi, 37-32.
Phi Sigma Delta also was vic-
torious over Delta Chi, 44-29,
while Delta Upsilon tripped up Al-
pha Epsilon Pi, 58-42.

Nats, third-place finishers in the
regular season, outhustled the sec-
ond-place Warriors all the way.
Teammate Hal Greer, another
"not-so-big" Nat, chipped in with
25 points.
Wilt Chamberlain, who had two
and sometimes three or four men
covering him, led allscorers with
46 points. He sank 19 of 39 shots
but only eight of 19 free throws.
Although the Warriors rallied
several times to tie, they couldn't.
keep their momentum going.
Midway in the third quarter the
Nats were ahead by 17 points, 82-
65. At three-quarters they had an
86-75 advantage, but the Warriors
stormed back-led by Guy Rod-
gers and Paul Arizin -- with 11
straight at the outset of the final
quarter to pull into an 86-86 dead-
lock. For all practical purposes,
the game ended there.
Led by Greer and Costello, Syra-
cuse clustered its own string of
nine to gain a 95-86 edge, and the
Warriors never got close again.
Detroit 5, New York 2
DETROIT-Norm Ullman fired
four goals-three in the first 14
minutes-but the Detroit Red
Wings still had to battle to the
final minutes last night for a 5-2
National Hockey League victory
over the New York Rangers.
Ullman scored his 25th, 26th,
and 27th goals to send Detroit in-
to a commanding lead. But it was
Alex Delvecchio's tally at 17:52 of
the third period that saved De-
troit from New York's mounting
Ullman got his fourth goal one
minute later for added insurance.
Pat Hannigan and Andy Heben-

ton had whittled Detroit's ad-
vantage to 3-2 and the Rangers
were pressing for the equalizer
when Delvecchio scored.
Ullman, wearing a helmet to
protect a black eye he received
Sunday, opened the scoring on
substitute goalie Marcel Paille at
2:04 of the first period. Within
the next twelve minutes, he had
the second hat trick of his 6-sea-
son NHL career.
Gordie Howe assisted on two
goals and stretched his Detroit
scoring record to 17 straight
The game was meaningless in
the NHL standing. Detroit already
has clinched the fourth and final
Stanley Cup playoff berth. The
Rangers are stuck in fifth place.

NEW YORK -Hulking Wake
Forest, 10 points behind at the
half, snapped St. John's 9-game
winning streak 97-74, last night.
Wake Forest, with three men on
its roster 6'8" and over and an-
other at 6'6", got its drive this
time from a 160-lb. sophomore
named Dave Wiedeman, who
wasn't even in the starting line-
