Michigan's hockey men are in
for a stern test tonight as they
take on the University of Denver
in the opener of a two-game series.
Denver coach Murray Arm-
strong felt that his team could
get into the thick of contention
for the 1962-63 WCHA champion-
ship after a good start in their
firstroad trip. The Pioneers split
-i a two-game series with Michigan
Tech at Houghton last weekend,
and if they are able to win one
or two of the games here, they
would be in a very good position.
M eanwhie, while Michigan and
Michigan Tech, the top two teams
in the league last year, are having
their troubles getting started this
year, Michigan State has won

To Entertain Denver,
Big Ten Raises Requirements
For Financial Aid to Athletes
CHICAGO (P) - Big Ten fac-
ulty representatives announced at
conference meetings yesterday
that the requirements for an ath-
lete to receive financial aid will be
slightly higher in the future.
Frank Remington of Wisconsin,
secretary of faculty representa-
tives, said in order for an athlete
to qualify for aid in the future
both his high school average and
aptitude tests scores will have to
be about 10 per cent higher than
in the past.
Working on the basis that 80
per cent of athletes given aid have
succeeded, the representatives in-
dicated that the new level is mere-
ly a continuation of higher stand-
ards required for both athletes
Bill Reed, Big Ten commissioner,
said the athletic directors' meet-
ing produced five recommenda-
tions, all resulting from the recent
meeting held by Big Ten football
However, Reed said no an-
nouncement would be made on,
the recommendations until after
they are presented to a joint meet-
ing today of athletic directors and

Forrest Anderson, Michigan
State basketball coach, appeared

son suggested conference basket-
ball games should be played on
Saturdays and Tuesdays instead
of the current Saturday-Monday
No action was taken on Ander-
son's suggestion. It will be placed
on the agenda for the March
meeting when the possibility of
returning to an 18-game confer-
ence schedule will be discussed.
The Big Ten played a round-robin
basketball schedule in 1952-53.
Reed also announced that he
will meet with conference football
coaches Jan. 29 to continue studies
concerning football officiating.
Controversies which arose last
season in football games have
prompted the conference to make
a study of the selection and train-
ing of officials in regard to.appli-
cation of the rules.

team, which adds to the hustle of
the Pioneers, since each one knows
there is someone ready to step in
his place if he doesn't do the job.

Sophomores Doug Kowel and
Bob Lindsay have looked good in
the first few games, and along
with senior Jack Wilson and jun-
ior Len Sedgwick provide the Pi-
oneers with a solid back line.
Last year's goalie for Denver,
junior Larry Beaucamp has found
himself in quite a struggle to hold
his job. Rudy Unis, who was Beau-
camp's understudy last season, has
gained much poise and agility
since last year and could well take
the job away from Beaucamp.
Unis played against Michigan
Tech and did well enough to earn
a chance at stopping Michigan.
Denver's graduation losses were
relatively light, as only three Pi-
oneers are not back. However, one
of these was Trent Beatty, who
was selected to the All-WCHA
second team last year. He was also
Denver's leading scorer.
Michigan coach Al Renfrew
views this Denver team as one of
the teams to beat for the league
title. He feels that the Pioneers
are stronger than last year, when
they finished third behind the
Wolverines and Michigan Tech.
Michigan's icers have been ham-
pered somewhat this week due to
schoolwork. Many of the players
have missed practice due to exams
in some departments. Otherwise
the team has had a good week of
practice, and there have been no
injuries or changes in the lines
since last weekend.

What does a gymnastics team
do when it doesn't have a meet
from Dec. 1 to Jan. 12?
Well, if it's one like Michigan's,
with possibilities for a national
championship, it just keeps on
The place is the characteristic-
ally chalky, dusty gymnastics
practice room, located in the In-
tramural Bldg. There, Coach Newt
Loken conducts what he likes to
call "a gymnastics exhibition every-
day of the week."
A practice session in this sport
is remarkably different from one
in almost any other. Unlike a team
sport, in which the coach is con-
stantly superv= ping the entire
squad working together as a unit,
here the various athleteshwork
separately, with Loken helping
each one with his individual
As a result, the atmosphere is
quite informal. Loken, a man who
seldom stands still for any length
of time, is continually shouting
words of encouragement or advice
to his charges. And the gymnasts
themselves are always seeking
ways to help each other out.
Evidently this "casual" approach
works, because Loken has as-
sembled and developed one of thej
finest groups of gymnasts in the
country. Besides pointing at the
five dual and triple meets during
the regular season, his long-range
goal is the Big Ten championship,
to be decided March 8 and 9 at
East Lansing. If the Wolverines
take it, it'll be their third straight,
and Loken is higher on this team
than he's ever been before.
Once aagin, Illinois and Michi-
gan State will be the main thorns
in Michigan's side this year. The
Illini, who had taken the Big Ten,
title for 11 straight years before
the Wolverines captured it in 1961,
finished fourth in the NCAA last
year, with the Spartans right be-
hind them. Since Michigan has
dual meets with both of these
schools, Loken will have ample
opportunity to see what he's up
against in the conference meet.
Because of this confidence in
his men, Loken bemoans the fact
that Michigan has only two home
meets this season, Feb. 16 with
Illinois, and Feb. 22 with Minne-
sota. To help remedy the situa-
tion, he conducts several exhibi-
tions in order to help the public
to become, familiar with the sport.
He feels that it just takes one
meet to interest a person in the
sport, and that if a good-size
crowd came to the exhibitions,
there wouldn't be the small crowds
at the dual meets as has been the
case in the past.

Week of Decision
Two intramural volleyball championships have been decided in the
last week. In the Independent division, Sportsmen took the. title by
winning four games out of six from Foresters. Delta Upsilon came
out on top in the social fraternity league when they out-spiked Sigma
Chi in taking four out of five decisions.
Van Tyne House engaged Scott House in about as close a swim
match as possible. Almost every event was won by one team or the
other just barely out-touching their opponent. And at the finish the
score was a 30-30 tie. However, I-M rules award the meet to that
team which wins the freestyle relay if there is a tie. So the cham-
pionship went to Van Tyne since their relay team was victorious.
As if that alone was not enough to rank among unusual incidents, it
so happened that in the semi-finals, too, Van Tyne ended in a 30-30
tie and that the same relay team won, thus putting them in the finals.
Next Tuesday night Sigma Alpha Epsilon will face Phi Gamma
Delta'for the social fraternity swimming crown. SAE got into the finals
when they dunked Delta Tau Delta 36-24. The Phi Gam's earned
their title shot by swamping Beta Theta Pi by a 41-19 score.
Beta Theta Pi and Hayden House have won wrestling champion-
ships. The top three teams of the social fraternities were: Beta Theta
Pi, 20; Phi Gamma Delta, 18; and Sigma Epsilon, 17 points. The in-
dividual winners were: Bob Blumberg, TEP, 123-lbs.; Jim Folger, SPE,
130-lbs.; Bill Zollinger, PGD, 137-lbs.; Mike Nuechterlein, SAE, 147-
lbs.; Tom Pullen, PGD, 157-lbs.; Dave Brazier, PDT, 167-lbs.; Steve
Lewis, BTP, 177-lbs.; and Jim Tuck, LCA, hvy.
For the residence halls Hayden had 20 points, Reeves had 15,
and Kelsey 14. The individual winners: Alan Sugar, Kelsey, 123-lbs.;
Bill Moss, Hinsdale, 130-lbs.; Steve Wyman, Kelsey, 137-lbs.; Bob
Elmasian, Taylor, 147-lbs.; Doug Mead, Huber, 157-lbs. Bob Liebler,
Hayden, 167-lbs.; John Lombardi, Cooley, 177-lbs.; and John Zline,
The intramural hockey teams have begun play. There are two
five-team leagues, so each week one team draws a bye. In Monday
night's action, Lambda Chi Alpha shut out Huber 3-0, Alpha Tau
Omega edged Reeves 4-2, Sigma Alpha Epsilon smothered East Quad
(Hayden) 11-1, and Chi Phi dumped the Has Beens 3-1.
In various other intramural action, Sigma Alpha Mu will be pitted
against Sigma Phi Epsilon for the social fraternity handball title;
pro fraternity volleyball championships will be held soon; the bowling
season for all social and professional fraternities, residence halls, and
independents is under way; and basketball competition will start right
after Christmas vacation.
