"Every team in the WCHA will
be improved this year, and it will
be a really tough conference,"
said hockey coach Al Renfrew a
few days ago.
"For instance, Minnesota has
their whole team back, North Da-
kota had the best freshman team
that they ever had last year. Mich-
igan Tech has 18 sophomores
which certainly won't hurt them
any. Of course, Denver is always

much as anyone else by gradua-

aggressive team. We will make a
lot of mistakes at first, but we
will be able to work over a lot of
Playing 28 Games
Michigan will play a 28 game
schedule this year. Eighteen of
those games will count in the
Western College Hockey Associa-
tion standings. The top four of the
seven teams in this conference will
enter the playoffs at the end of
the season. The best two of those
four teams will probably be the
western entries in the National
Collegiate A t h 1 e t i c Association
tournament at the end of the sea-
son. Last year Michigan held the
first place slot at the end of the
season with a 12-2 record, but lost
in the finals of the playoffs to
Denver. The Wolverines then de-
feated Denver a week later in the
finals of the NCAA tourney for
the national title.
Big Ten Loop
The Blue are also part of a
little-publicized Big Ten hockey
conference. Michigan State and
Minnesota also play this -double
role, so that the WCHA games
with those teams also count ,to-
ward the Big Ten title which the
Wolverines won last year. Other
recent entries in this conference
are Wisconsin and Ohio State,
which the Wolverines beat 21-0
Coach Renfrew looks for an ex-
The Wolverines open their sea-
son on the road this weekend
against the Chatham Juniors and
the University of Western On-
tario. The Blue will return home
the first weekend after Thanks-
giving, Dec. 4 and 5, against Min-
nesota for the opening of the
WCHA and Big Ten conference
Thissyear Michigan will play
both North Dakota and Denver at
home, as opposed to last year when
the Blue did not meet either team
in regular season play.
Another first will be Michigan's
entry in the Boston Tournament
which will be held on Dec. 28-30..
Other teams entered will be Hiar- -
vard, which forded a ,very strong
team last year but wats ineligible
for the NCAA tournament, Boston
College, and Northwestern.

Chicago,. Ramblers Win
In Gridiron Playoffs
By CHUCK VETZNER
and BOB LEDERER
It was a cold, windy night at
Wines Field yesterday, and the
boys from Chicago House, named
after the Windy City, were at
home in their element. They
swept past defending champion
Taylor House 18-8 to capture the
residence hall 'A' football cham-
In other playoff games, the
Ramblers upended the Foresters
to cop the title in the independent
league, Michigan House won the
'B' residence hall crown, and Sig-
ma Alpha Epsilon took its familar
place in the fraternity 'B' team
The fraternity 'A' playoff game
will not be held until next week.
The passing of Roger Burma to
halfback Dick Sanderson told the
story in Chicago's victory. The
speedy back caught three touch-i
down tosses to account for all of
their scoring. The Taylor attack
was stymied until late in the
fourth quarter when end Rich!
Uhlman made a spectacular touch-
Chicago scored the first time
they got their hands on the ball as
Burma hit Sanderson on the 10-j
yard line and four plays later fired
the first touchdown pass.
In the second half, Chicago
again scored on their frist series'
of plays. Sanderson took in an-
other Burma pass and raced up
the middle to the fiie. On the
next play, the shifty receiver ran
a slant-in play and took the ball'
in the end zone for his second six
Early in the fourth quarter Chi-
cago tallied once more. This time
they chose the long bomb. Burma'
fired a long spiral which Sander-
son gathered in some 40 yards
Taylor, trying to avoid a shut-
out, struck back immediately.
After several short gains, Chuck
Kopec heaved a pass headed to-
ward the right sidelines. Uhlman
raced over, stretched his arm out,
and nonchalantly speared the ball
in one hand. He then waltzed into
the end zone untouched
The Chicago attack dominated
the game primarily because of the
fine pass protection. Blocking back
Bill Lord gave Burma plenty of
time to throw, as he consistently
halted Taylor's defensive linemen.
The Ramblers, in capturing the
independent title, out-played a
bigger and better organized For-
ester Club. The slippery ground
sent many a rangy Forester slid-
ing across the gridiron while the
shiftier Ramblers frequently found
themselves open to receive passes.
In the first half the Forester
punting specialist dropped the ball
in the end zone, and this was de- .y
dared a safety. The Ramblers soon
made the score 8-0 on a 10-yard
scoring pass from quarterback'..,
Dave 'Griffin to his brother John.
The ensuing conversion attempt
Later in the game the Ramblers
broke the game open on a 30-yard
pass for a score which again in-
volved the Griffin brothers. This
time, however, brother John did
the hurling and brother Dave the
receiving. The conversion pass for
two points was successful.
The Foresters averted a shut-
out when quarterback Harold
Stewart threw a strike to his
teammate, Hal Funke. The final
score was 16*6.
Meanwhile, at the other end of
the field, Michigan was defeating
Gomberg for the residence 'B'
championship, 6-0. The score came
in the third quarter when Mich-
igan end Greg Frontier found
himself open 40 yards from the
line of scrimmage where Eric
Zimmy's pass hit him in the chest.
The conversion sailed.
The teams had battled to a
scoreless first half as those passes
that the receivers were able to get
to before slipping were dropped
because of the biting cold. Gom-
berg's answer to Huarte-Snow is
Ray-Ford, but the latter were un-
able to get Big Red into paydirt.
Mike Zielewski (6-2, 290), de-
fensive standout for Michigan, re-
ceived the brunt of his teammates'
attention. Sideline chants of
"Kong, Kong, Kong" inspired Mike
to obilterate a few Gomberg

An electrifying interception by
Steve Erickson put the icing on
the cake in SAE's 20-6 triumph
over Delta Upsilon.
The 'B' champions took a 6-0
halftime lead on a pass from Dick
Schreyer to Chan Simonds. The
DU squad came back to knot the
score when a Rich Meyer pass was
pulled in by John Kirkpatrick.
But SAE came back on a touch-
down run by Schreyer. The con-
version was good as Erickson took
in Schreyer's aerial.
Then with only two seconds left,
DU tried a long desperation pass.
Erickson picked it off on his own
goal line and headed; for the far
sidelines. He managed to wind his
way through the defeated and de-
jected DU team and squirmed into
the end zone before being touched.
