pite Twin Losses at North Dakota

"It was a heartbreaker, I can't

This is what Michigan hockey

11 Seconds Away
Just eleven seconds away from
nrth place in the Western Col-
giate Hockey Association and a
layoff berth this weekend, the
Tolvernes saw this slip out 'of
ieir hands. At 9:49 of the over-
me period, North Dakota's Bill
olpitts drove home the last nail
n Michigan's coffin for the sea-
on, as his goal gave the NoDaks
4-3 win.
"We played well in both games,"

Tomorrow's Daily editorial
page will be devoted to a con-
sideration of the recent Big Ten
vote which, if affirmed in May,
would ban all post-season ac-
tivity for Western Conference
Sports editor, Jim Benagh
will cover the possibility that
the Big Ten faculty representa-
tives made a mistake in passing
the legislation, even if only
Tom Witecki will explain the
"White Resolution," under
which the ruling is inoperative
for 60 days and subject to ob-
jection on the part of the mem-
ber schools.
The feelings of Michigan's
coaches on this matter (and
possible recruiting implications)
will be brought out by Dave

position of Wolverine athletes
on the ruling and how they feel

Layoff Hurts
Renfrew pointed to the long
three-week layoff between semes-
ters as the downfall of the Wol-
verines-a team that had been
picked as an early-season con-
tender. Since that time the Wol-
verine record was a dismal three
wins and nine losses, including a
wrapup of five straight defeats.
Another factor in the late sea-
son faltering of the pucksters Ren-
frew points out as being the
absence of Bill Kelly ,and Pat
"But what makes it worse," says
Renfrew, whose squad lost fourth
place to Colorado College by a
few percentage points, "is that

the two winners proceeding to

The Michigan mentor felt that
his charges had played very well
in both games at Grand Forks and
pointed especially to improved'
play by goalie Jim Coyle.
"Jim played a good game and
the rest of the team was starting
to get their confidence again as
he kept turning them away.
"I really feel we outplayed them.
They had eight seniors playing
their last games and were all fired
up, but we still skated them into
the ice.
Nothing Goes Right
"It was just one of those games
where nothing goes right.
"Joe (Lunghamer) shot once

we thought it was in, but it hit
the post and bounced out. Friday
night, Bob White was skating in

"When you can't put those in,
you just can't win. We did every-

Renfrew adds as an after-
thcught: "This is a tough league."

UP AND OVER-That's the story for Wolverine high jumper
Steve Williams as he works out in Yost Fieldhouse. Williams came
through at the Big Ten track meet at Ohio State with a jump of
6'5%1", good for second-place honors in the Conference.

"Those sophomores were really
great," exclaimed track coach Don
Canham after Saturday's Big Ten
track meet victory.
The meet statistics back this
compliment up as the Wolverine
rookies scored 261/ of Michigan's
63113 points, or more than the
whole team from each of seven
other schools.
Leads Sophs
Leading the sophomores in
points was middle-distance man
Ergas Leps - the second-highest
point gainer in the entire meet.
Although he didn't win any events,
he proved himself the strongest
To Travel
to Africa
Four former Michigan gymnasts,
headed by Big Ten and NCAA
"rebound tumbling" champion Ed
Cole, will be going to Africa in
March for a two month tour of
clinics and exhibitions on the
"Trampoline," for the United
States State Department.
Cole's three traveling com-
panions are Ron Munn, a NAAU
champion on the ,"Tramp," Char-
ley Bates and Chuck Clarkson, the
latter two being lettermen for
Coach Newt Loken's crew in years
Cole himself was Big Ten champ
for three years, 1957-59, and na-
tional title winner his last year.
Loken said that the tour would be
an excellent one, giving the peo-
ple of Africa a chance to see some,
really fine "rebound tumbling."

runner present as he pz;d high.
in three track finals-more than
anyone else.
His 4:15 timing in the mile
brought him home third, and a
1:53.9 jaunt over the half-mile
distance gained him a close second
to Illinois' great George Kerr. He,
also ran a strong leg on the sec-
ond-place mile relay team.
McRae Ties Record
Bennie McRae, the man who
has had so much trouble with
injuries in training this season,
came over the 70-yard low hurdles
in :7.8 to tie the Conference
record. He ;wpuld have placed well
in the highs except that his tim-
ing was off, and he went through
r:- hurdles than he cleared.
Coach Canham estimated that
"McRae could have finished as
high as third in the 60-yard dash
also if he had had a better chance
to train."
Lanky Steve Williams high
jumped as he never had before to
clear 6'52" and take second place.
His coach - a former NCAA
titlist in that event-pointed out
that "He had two better jumps
than the guy that won. Both
jumpers hit the bar; it wouldn't
stay on for Steve, but did when
(Reggie) Shephard ticked it."
Michigan's two shotputters, Ray
Locke and Terry Trevarthen,
placed second and third respec-
tively. This gave great encourage-

ment to those thinking of further
possible Wolverine victories for
the next two years.
Void Filled
Michigan has been without a
good shotputter for the last few
conference meets and now that
void has been filled.
This weekend, both Leps and
McRae will compete in the Chi-
cago Daily News Relays and the
Milwaukee Journal meet. Leps will
run on 'ie mile and two-mile
relay teams and McRae will run
in the high and low hurdles.
According to the Wolverine
track mentor, "We're just going
out there for fun after last
weekend's meet. I still'can't relax
and I think the boys want to run
with the pressure off for a while.
Thes. next few will be 'relaxing
meets' until the outdoor season

Wolverine Champion Wrestling Squad
Expects To ContinueRolling Next Year,

Associate Sports Editor
Big Ten wrestling coaches, sur-
prised by the great team per-
formance that carried Michigan
to the biggest winning margin in
10 years of Conference meets,
have reason to fear for more of
the same next year.
Only two Wolverine grapplers
-Captain Mike Hoyles and Fred
Oli--are seniors, and they ac-
counted for only 12 of the 65
points the team got in last week-
end's tournament here.
Corriere Returns
In addition, Coach Cliff Keen
expects to regain the services of
1959 Conference 157-pound
champion Don. Corriere. He
dropped out of school last semes-
ter, but re-enrolled this term.
Most of the team for the past
two seasons has consisted of
members of the 1961 class. It will
be true next year, too, when these
men (Jim Blaker, Dennis Fitz-
gerald, Karl Fink, Dick Fronczak,
and Wilfried Hildebrandt) are
Holes To Fill
Upon their graduation, Keen
will,have quite a few holes to fill
in the lineup. Whether he will
have a sufficient number of soph-
omores to take over depends on
the number of wrestling freshmen
who greet Keen next fall.

"We've gotten only one state
champion in the past two years,"
Keen said. He got half a dozen
three years ago.
What effect will the recent Big
Ten "decision" against cqmpeti-
tion in NCAA meets have on
wrestling recruiting this year?
Managers Wanted
Steve Schmidt, senior base-
ball manager, announced yes-
terday that sophomore man-
agers are needed for this spring.
Anyone interested should con-
tact him at NO 3-7541, Ext. 580.
"We've never done much re-
cruiting for wrestling," Keen an-
swered, "but this NCAA business
has not helped."
In his 35 years as mat coach
here, Keen has always had to
buck manpower problems, and is
not especially enthused over any-
thing that would restrict his sup-
ply of material.
Limited Squad
"There's not another major
team in the nation right now try-
ing to do business with a squad
as limited (12 men) as ours,"
Keen added.
"I don't say It's my greatest
team in history," the smiling
coach said, "but it was the great-

est Michigan team performance
I have ever seen. Everyone of our
boys gave every nickel's worth of
Outstanding Year
The Big Ten victory climaxed
an outstanding season in which
Michigan won nine of 11 dual
meets. An anti-climax will be
provided by the (pardon the ex-
pression) NCAA meet March 25-
27 at College Park, Md.
Keen indicated he might take
the entire team. He has done this
only twice before, in 1929 when
seven men went and in 1940 when
six competed. Both times Michi-
gan was second. In other years
Keen has taken only a few out-
standing individuals to the na-

Dick Ernsdoiff studies a microwave site-layout chart atop a moun-

this, he often carries $25,000 worth of equipment with him.

Here, Dick checks line-of-sight with a distant repeater station by

technique, reflections of the sun's rays can be seen as far as 50 miles.

For engineer Richard A. Ernsdorff, the "uniform of the
day" changes frequently. A Monday might find him in a
checkered wool shirt on a Washington or Idaho mountain
top. Wednesday could be a collar-and-tie day.
Dick is a transmission engineer with the Pacific Tele-
phone and Telegraph Company in Seattle, Washington. He
joined the company in June, 1956, after getting his B.S.E.E.
degree from Washington State University. "I wanted to
work in Washington," he says, "with an established, grow-
ing company where I could find a variety of engineering op-
portunities and could use some imagination in my work."
Dick spent 21/, years in rotational, on-the-job training,
doing power and equipment engineering and "learning the
business." Since April, 1959, he has worked with micro-
wave radio relay systems in the Washington-Idaho area.
When Dick breaks out his checkered shirt, he's headed
for the mountains. He makes field studies involving micro-

wave systems and SAGE radars and trouble-shoots any,
problem that arises. He also engineers "radar remoting"
facilities which provide a vital communications link be.
tween radar sites and Air Force Operations.
A current assignment is a new 11,000 me radio route
from central Washington into Canada, utilizing reflectors
on mountains and repeaters (amplifiers) in valleys. It's a
million-dollar-plus project.
"I don't know where an engineer could find more inter-
esting work," says Dick.
You might also find an interesting, rewarding career with
the Bell Telephone Companies. See the Bell interviewer
when he visits your campus.

aligns transmitting and receiving equipment prior to making anpath.
