Icers Travel to Minnesota

NCAA Expected to Pass Anti-AAU Rule:
Penalty for Entering Unsanctioned Meets







Michigan's hockey team will
travel to Minneapolis for games
with Minnesota tonight and to-
morrow night for the first time
since the hard fought, penalty-
filled games at Minneapolis two
years ago.
The two games created consid-
erable bitterness between the two
teams and the second game was
the scene of a near riot as the
game ended. Because of this situ-
ation, last season's Michigan-
Minnesota series was cancelled.
Series Split
Minnesota won the Friday night
game on January 13, 1961 by a 4-2
score. Michigan bounced back the
following night to win by the same
The first night was one of frus-
tration for the Wolverines. While
the Gophers received only two
penalties during the game, the
Wolverines had twelve. Michigan
was shorthanded 13 minutes and

21 seconds of the 20-minute sec-
ond period. Throughout the game
the Wolverines were unable to get
their offense in' gear due to the
Minnesota scored its fourth goal
of the game on an open Michigan
net with 17 seconds to play. Michi-
gan's Red Berenson cinched the
second game similarly on a goal
into Minnesota's open net with
two seconds to play. The defeat
was Minnesota's first league loss
and dropped the Gophers from
first to second in the WCHA. With
this goal Berenson completed his
three-goal hat trick and the ex-
cited red-head jubilantly threw
his stick accidentally into the
crowd. This action gave Berenson
a 10-minute misconduct penalty.
Everyone Rowdy
As the game ended, the Minne-
sota players attempted to get at
Berenson as did many of the 8,409
rowdy fans at Williams Arena.
Berenson was the object of pop-

corn boxes and programs while in
the penalty box and also after the
game. In the melee after the game,
a fan took a swing at Michigan
Captain Dale MacDonald. Lines of
police had to protect the Michigan
players from the fans.
After Friday's game, Minnesota
Coach John Mariucci said that
despite the 12 penalties given the
Wolverines, "They could have had
ten more penalties." He also called
the Michigan hockey players "dir-
ty" and "vicious."
This season the Wolverines en-
ter the two Minnesota contests
with a 5-3 overall record and a 1-31
WCHA record. Minnesota is 1-1 in
league standings and comes
straight from winning the cham-
pionship of the Rensselaer Poly-
technic Institute Tournament.
Loyal Maize and Blue hockey
fans may be delighted to learn,
that Minnesota comes here for a
pair of games to start off a home
stand early in February

LOS ANGELES ()-The an-
nual conventions of the NCAA
begin here today with every in-
dication that the fuse will be lit1
to more fireworks in the three-
year struggle with the AAU over
control of amateur sports.
It was a year ago, at this same1
meeting in Chicago, that the
NCAA gave unanimous endorse-
ment to creation of U. S. federa-
tions in track and field.
The NCAA's latest move, ex-
pected to be approved at the final
business session next Wednesday,
is an amendment to its bylaws:
that would make a collegian in-
eligible for NCAA championship
events for one year if he com-
petes in an open event that hasn't
been sanctioned by the appropri-
ate U.S. federation.
Hurts AAU
Both Chick Werner, executive
director of the U.S. Track and3
Field Federation, and Don Hull,
executive director of the AAU,i

conceded yesterday that the in-
eligibility rule would drastically
cut participation by collegians in
the AAU-sanctioned indoor track
and field season which opens Jan.
12 in Boston.
None of the big Eastern indoor
meets has sought Federation sanc-
"They are perfectly legitimate'
meets, and we would be perfectly
willing to sanction them if we
were asked," Werner said.
"But my understanding is that
the AAU has told the promoters
they would withdraw their sanc-
tion if ours was obtained."
"I think they want to take the
college kids out of any events
they can't make money on," said
Hull. "They have seen how much
they can make with a football
Hull called the proposed legisla-
tion "undemocratic and unpatrio-
tic" and added that the action
"indicates the powerful executive
committee of the NCAA places its
greed for power above United
States victory in international
Hull said since participation in
open meets of the federation
makes athletes ineligible for in-
ternational competition, the NCAA
is "deliberately making its ath-
letes ineligible for the United
States Olympic team."

Despite all the signs of war,
there is still an opportunity that
arbitration could solve the strug-
Yesterday the White House an-
nounced that the AAU has accept-
ed President Kennedy's appeal for
arbitration by Gen. Douglas Mac-
Presidential press s e c r e t a r y
Pierre Salinger said the NCAA
also has indicated its willingness
to arbitrate, but the President so
far has not received a formal

to develop athletes for the 1964

competing at Boston "will rest
with our athletic director, Art
"We have never signed anything
