Michigan's hockey team picked
up its first series sweep of the
season last weekend, beating non-
conference opponent Minnesota-
Duluth, 6-5, in overtime, and 4-2.
Coach Al Renfrew commented
yesterday, "We simply got the
breaks and took advantage of
them. Any time you can come
from behind two nights in a row,
you are doing pretty well."
In Friday night's game the Wol-
verines forced Duluth goalie Bill
Halbrehder to make 79 saves, 35
of them in the first period. All-
America defenseman Tom Polon-
ic said yesterday, "I knew that we
shot a lot on Friday, but not that
much. Thirty-five saves is good
shooting for a game for some
teams, yet we got that in a per-

The coach explained that de-
fenseman Barry MacDonald is
still not "one hundred per cent,
and Mel Wakabayashi hurt his
shoulder and we are still not sure
how seriously."
He added that he has not de-
cided on his three offensive lines
but added that he would use Cap-
tain Wilf Martin, Wakabayashi,
and Dechaine as centers.
Martin kept up his scoring pace
last weekend, as he put in two
goals and was credited with two
assists. Wakabayashi had one goal
and one assist while Dechaine tal-
lied once.



Team Spirit High
Discussing the team's outlook,
and comparing the team to last,
year's, he said that, "the team is{
weakerthan it was last year. We
lost the first _line of Wilkie, But-
ler, and Cole which is a big loss.
The team has a lot more spirit
this year, however, and everyone
is pulling together because we
don't have the stars wehad last
year. If we go all the way again
this year it will be more of a team
effort and everyone will appreci-
ate it more."
After graduation, Polonic would;
like to go on to play professional
hockey if possible.

After demolishing the Illini in
their conference opener Friday
night, the wrestlers left by car
for Lafayette for the meet against
Purdue on Saturday.
After driving about 80 miles of
the 100-mile trip without inci-
dent, the team ran into heavy
snow and five-foot drifts across
the road. One of the cars, carry-
ing Coach Cliff Keen and half the
team, could not get through a drift
and the engine stalled. In order
to continue on their trip, the


After futilely digging themselves
out of two or three more drifts
and being able to make absolute-
ly no progress either forward or
backward, the team abandoned
their snowbound-car and trudged
off through the drifted snow to-
ward a light in the distance.
The light turned out to be a
farmhouse a mile and a half from
the road. The wrestlers made it
to the house at 5 a.m. and awak-
ened the occupants who offered
them lodging on assorted beds,
sofas, and pallets for the rest of
the night.f
The matmen got up in the morn-
ing to find their car covered with
snow left by a snow plow which
had gone by earlier in the morn-,
ing. A second snowplow came
along shortly and broke a chain
trying to pull the car out.
The team finally managed to
reach Lafayette at 10 a.m., 12
hours after they started, but when
a vote was taken it was decided

not to wrestle and the meet was
"The boys were exhausted after
digging the snow and staying up
most of the night. They weren't
in any condition to wrestle. Some
serious injuries might have result-
ed," explained Keen yesterday.

The Wolverines completely dom-
inated the Illini in the Friday
nightdcontest. The matmen drop-
ped only one match, the 167-

by Rich Callaghan, 6-2. Callaghan

The highlights of the meet were
the two pins scored by the Wol-
verines. Bob Fehrs at 123-pounds
and Cal Jenkins at 147-pounds
both took their opponents down
for the count.
These two pins brought the Wol-
verines' total to seven for the first
four dual meets of the year. "I
think this 'is more pins than usual
at this time of the year. We be-
lieve in going for pins, and we
hope we can keep getting more.

.Some notes about you, about
us, and the advertising business
About you. If you are the man we seek, you have an
insatiable curiosity about people and the world around you.
You're alert and responsive to new ideas, new ways of doing
things. You like to take on new problems ... you see them as
You dig deep into the why of things. And the best answers
you can come up with today are never good enough for you
You're an individualist. Yet you thrive on team spirit.
You have conviction about freedom of choice, consistent
with the rights of others.
You're the kind of man who could be successful in business
for himself, but you see the greater challenge implicit in to-
day's major enterprises.
About us. The J. Walter Thompson Company was formed
100 years ago and has long been one of the world's largest
advertising firms. Its stock is owned by more than five hun-
dred active staff members.

In our experience, superior individuals from every graduate and
undergraduate educational discipline find successful careers
in a major agency such as the Thompson Company. Staff
members in our New York Office alone represent nearly three
hundred colleges and universities here and abroad.
Your career with us. You may be surprised to learn
that while an advertising company must have artistically cre-
ative people, it depends just as much on people who are imagi-
native and inventive in other ways.
Our business is selling. Communicating through the written
and spoken word is how we sell. You must possess the ability
to speak and write well so your ideas may be shared and
We are looking for the kind of men who wish and are able to
assume substantial responsibility early in their business lives.
To such men we offer a remarkable chance to grow and develop
-one seldom found in any firm.
Previous advertising experience is not required. Basically,
our interest is in the nature of a person rather than in his
specialized knowledge and abilities.
We offer you no standard starting salary, no cut-and-dried
training program. Beginning salaries are individually con-
sidered and compare favorably to those of other national firms.
We help you tailor your own development program, based on
your interests, your abilities, your goals. Your program will
differ from other men's programs just as you differ from
other men.
When you join us you will work side by side with experi-
enced advertising men. Your growth will be based on your own
initiative, your own development. There are no age or senior-
ity requirements to limit the responsibility you can earn.
We encourage you to follow your curiosity into all phases of
advertising, because we want you to become a well-rounded
practitioner as rapidly as possible. Experienced advertising
men are eager to coach yQu individually in your efforts to
develop your capabilities. Additionally, you are free to delve
into every nook and cranny of advertising through our
annual series of professional seminars, workshops and classes.
You learn from men who are experts in their fields.
About men who join us. A remarkable number of
college men who have joined us in the past decade have re-
mained with us and are enjoying varied, exciting careers.
Because of our emphasis on early growth, relatively young
men commonly handle major responsibilities in many phases
of our business-both in this country and abroad.
All initial assignments are in New York City, Chicago
or Detroit; but we have many other offices in the United
States and throughout the world; and if you are interested,
you may request a transfer later on.
If you wish to be a candidate, you must graduate in 1965 and
be able to join us by June of 1966. You may obtain further in-
formation at the placement office. Please check there regard-
ing the possibility of a personal interview. We shall be on
campus February 8-9 and 10.

won by the team which got the
most pins," commented Keen.,
Heavyweight Bob Spaly came
very close to getting a pin as he
trounced his opponent, 13-0, on
the strength of three near falls.
Spaly has yet to lose in four dual
meets this season. He has scored
three shutouts and a pin.
Three wrestlers who had been
out with injuries returned to ac-
tion for the first time against the
Illini. Bill Johannesen and, Lee
Deitrick both wrestled to 1-1
draws in the 137- and 157-pound
matches, respectively. Deitrick was
wrestling against Clay Beattie, Il-
linois' top wrestler, who finished
fourth in the Big Ten last yea".
In the 177-pound match, Chris
Stowell won 7-1, almost scoring
another pin for the Wolverines.
Bay Returns
Captain Rick Bay, who was al-
so injured earlier in the season,
has returned to practice and will
probably be able to wrestle in
Michigan's next meet on January
29, when it faces Wisconsin at
Keen was satisfied with the per-
formance of all the wrestlers in
the Illinois meet.
"There's not a guy I would cri-
ticize. They have all been work-
ing hard and should go quite fer.
We've got a man in every weight
who is a potential Big Ten cham-
pion, but then again Iowa, Michi-
gan State, Northwestern and some
of the other schools all have some
potential champions, too," Keen
"We've got pretty good depth
this year. Our depth has helped a
lot, especially when some of our
boys were injured."
