Renfrew Changes Hockey Policy

1'

adapted from the
international favorite
of the Champions
at the Olympics.

By STAN KUKLA
In a season that would be better
forgotten the Wolverine hockey
team rolled up its worst record in
quite a few years.
The biggest news however was
an announcement by Coach Al
Renfrew several weeks after the
season had ended. Renfrew an-
nounced his decision to restrict
hockey scholarships from Cana-
dian players. This move was made
in the hopes of forming a Big Ten
hockey league within the next
few years.
Certainly something had to be
done, because after the showing
by this year's hockey team more
fan appearhad to be injeced intc
the game.
The Wolverine hockey team
started the season quickly beating
the Chatham Junior A Maroons
9-1 and then knocking off the
Toronto Blues 6-2, before return-
ing home to meet Michigan State's
Spartans.

The future looked rosy indeed
until the Friday night game. The
Spartans soon burst the Wolver-
ines' bubble winning a Michigan
game for the first time in three
years. But one loss didn't seem
so bad because there were always
more games to play.
Humiliated
However, the Spartans humili-
ated the Wolverines again on
Saturday night to win a Michigan-
Michigan State series for the first
time.
The two losses left Michigan in
the cellar of the Western Colleg-
iate Hockey Association, a position
from which they would be unable
to rise for the rest of the season.
The next week the Wolverines
had a respite when they played
Queens University The games
were no contest at all, and Bill
Bieber made his first appearance
of the year in the second game.

The Wolverines resumed the
WCHA wars the next weekend
and started a long losing streak
that was interrupted only by
Christmas vacation.'
The Wolverines started off the
new year well by losing to Minne-
sota. In the course of the first
game Michigan's star goalie Bob
Gray injured his knee while mak-
ing a save. Bieber was called in
to replace him in the nets. The
Wolverines managed a tie in their
next game, the closest they had
been to a win all year.
No Help
The change in goalies didn't
help and the team seemed to lose
what little spark it had as the
Wolverines dropped a two game
series to the Michigan Tech Husk-
ies before returning home and
dropping two games to Minnesota.
The next weekend however was
all joy and gladness at the Coli-
seium. The Wolverines managed
to win two whole games from the
Huskies. It was Grays first re-
turn to the lineup since his injury
at Minneapolis. Gray's return
seemed to put new drive into the
players and built up team confi-
dence. They played as they should
have played all season.
The Wolverines then took a
trip out West, playing at Denver,
Colorado College and North Da-
kota. They did no . better there
than they did around home; the
closest they could come to a win
was a tie against North Dakota.
Spirit Gone
It was a broken team that faced
the Spartans in the final ganes of
the season. The Wolverines hoped
to salvage some o f their pri'de by
taking the series from the Spar-
tans, but this was not to be. The
Wolverines flashed to an early
lead in the first game only be-
cause the Spartans made so many,
mistakes that they were almost
laughed off the ice by the home-;
town, fans. Then the Wolverines
tried to match them in ineptness.
Clown Contest
Not only did they match them,
they surpassed them - soon the
Spartans were on the high side of
a two goal lead. They were still;
in the same position when the;
final buzzer went.
In the second game the Wolver-
ines and the Spartans traded goals-
but the Spartans had that final
goal before the buzzer.
Yes, 'twas a sad season.
Renfrew's move was the great-
est surprise of the year because
he had been a big proponent of1
Canadian hockey and certainly no,

one had expected him to withdraw
all scholarships from Canadian
players. Those with scholarship
through the '62-'63 year would be
allowed to play out their scholar-
ship.
Rah! Boo!
Renfrew's move was hailed by
the Big Ten members of the
WCHA, however, other members
of the WCHA looked with some
askance at the move. John Mac-
Innes of Michigan Tech expressed
shock and surprise that the Wol-
verines would hold to such a dis-
criminatory policy.

BARDEN GONE:
Wrestlers Depth Make Loss
Of NCAA Champ Less Hard

Barry Thorndycroft of North
Dakota was the most agreeable
of the non-Big Ten WCHA coach-
es toward Renfrew's new policy.
He said that North Dakota will
also restrict their scholarships
from Canadian players shortly.
Michigan State's coach was the
most verbose in condemning the
WCHA and approving Renfrew's
move. "As far as I'm concerned
the Western Collegiate Hockey
Association was an outlaw organi-
zation," he said.
The teams Renfrew is hoping
to have in the Big Ten league

are Ohio State and Wisconsin plus
the Big Ten teams that were in
the old WCHA. The other Big
Ten schools' facilities are so un-
derdeveloped that they will not
be able to form hockey teams in
the near future. Wisconsin will
not be playing any games this
year, because advisor Arthur
Thompson feels that they have
not reached the degree of profi-
ciency to play against teams like
Michigan.
Ohio State on the other hand
has scheduled Michigan for this
season.

DID ANYONE GET.THE NUMBER OF THAT BUS ?-Gordon
Wilkie and last year's captain Larry Babcock jam puck past the
North Dakota goalie in one of Michigan's' all too infrequent goals
of last season. Both men are Canadians playing here on hockey
scholarships, a breed which will not exist after this season.

By JAMES BERGER
As venerable Cliff Keen heads
after his 12th Big Ten champion-
ship in his 38-year career as Mich-
igan's wrestling coach, he will
have only one real hole to fill
from last year's lineup.
But that one may prove to be
something of a problem.
Back from last year's squad,
which finished first in the Big
Ten and third in the national
collegiate meet, are seven of Mich-
igan's eight starters. Only the
heavyweight position is left vacant.
Ah . .. So!
Last year's heavyweight, how-
ever, happened to be Jack Braden,
a Big Ten, NCAA and Pan-Ameri-
can titlist as well as a Black Belt
judo expert. Captain Nick Arme-
lagos, at 123 pounds also .has
graduated..
Ordinarily, the loss of someone
like Barden would be the subject
of much concern. and it would be
for Keen if it weren't for the fact
that he has such a large carry'-
over in all the other weights.
Even, if he can't reply replace
Barden, he can still hope to clean
up in the other weights.
And it's not really as if he has
nothing coming back at heavy-
weight. Bob Spaly, for instance,
just happened to be the number-
five heavyweight in the college
ranks last year.
So, all in all, 1964 promises to
be a banner year for Michigan.
wrestlers.

Leading the team are five jun-
iors who as sophomores last year
filled all but three of the eight
regular positions. Besides Spaly;
some of the big guns returning
are Rick Bay, Big Ten champion
and fifth nationally, at 157
pounds; Dave Dozeman, third in
both the Big Ten and NCAA meets
at 130 pounds; Lee Deitrick, sec-
iond in the Big Ten and first in
the Wilkes Tournament at 147
pounds; and Chris Stowell, fourth
in the Big Ten meet at 167 pounds.
More Returnees.
Others back from the winning-
cast of last year are Carl Rhodes,
third in the Big Ten at 123
pounds; Gary Wilcox, sixth in
the NCAA meets at 137 pounds;
and Wayne Miller, the team cap-
tain-elect, at 157 pounds.
If there is a problem next year,
it will be what to do with the
non-regulars. Keen also has a
large stable of sometime starters
who won the right to go to the
big meets.
Among them are Ralph Bahna
and Buddy Palmisano, both light-
weights, J o e Arcure; at 177
pounds, and Keen's son Jim, at
147 pounds.
Talented
With so much talent last year,
trained under the watchful eyes
of Keen and Assistant Coach
Doug Blubaugh, the Wolverines
compiled a dual meet record of
9-1. They lost their first meet,
14-4, to Penn State and then

beat Pittsburgh, 14-3, in non-
conference action.
Then they swept undefeated
through eight straight Big Ten
matches before whipping defend-
ing champion Iowa, 52-42, in the
conference meet.
At that time, Keen was elated
enough to comment, "It was a
great performance, one 'of the
finest victories I've ever seen. I've
never seen such a dedicated group
of men. They went to win. They
are a young bunch of guys with
a purpose and it took a lot of'
work and concentration to win
this title."
National Ranking
Then, with the Big Ten title
under their belts after two straight
seasons of finishing runners-up,
the Wolverines proceeded to Kent,
Ohio, to place third in the NCAA
meet behind perennial powers
Oklahoma and Iowa State.
And throughout the season, it
.was Barden who led the way. He
capped a successful dual meet
season with the Big Ten heavy-
weight crown by defeating Wis-
consin's Roger Pillath in overtime.
Then he beat Wayfe Baughman
of Oklahoma for the NCAA title
at 191 pounds as Spaly filled in at
heavyweight. F r o m there, he
moved up from an alternate's posi-
tion on the U.S. Pan-Am team to
take the Western Hemisphere title
with little trouble.
This year, it's the same team
all over again-except for Barden.
