Clark, who is 6'1", was rated
one of the top shots 'on the fresh-
man squad last winter. Another
versatile athlete, this sophomore
is rated a top infield prospect for
the Wolverine nine this spring.
Maentz will fill in occasionally
for forward Rich Donley while
Clark is slated to spell Rich Rob-
bins in the guard slot.
Donley and Robbins earned let-
ters as sophomores last winter
when they both saw limited ac-
tion. Donley, at 6'5", will be the

6'1" Robbins should add to the
Wolverines' fast break attack.
The other three starters, Terry
Miller, John Tidwell and center
Lovell Farriss, will probably play
without relief, barring injuries
and excessive fouling.
Team Captain Miller will be
playing with a taped knee and
Tidwell still feels occasional pain
in the knee he injured last winter.
However, Peirgo thinks they both

year's squad and are the key men

The three remaining sopho-
mores are Dennis Robison, Steve
Schoenherr and Richard Lyons.
Perigo describes the 6'5" Robison
as a "good faker in the pivot posi-
tion, but needing more work on
defense." Schoenherr and Lyons
are both guards.
Rounding out the traveling
squad is Richard Myers, a 6'5"
Despite its overall lack of
height, Perigo seems optimistic
about the team's chances this win-
ter. He said, "This is one of the
hardest working squads I have
ever had. It is faster than last
year's team and its overall shoot-
ing is better."
However, with their lack "of re-
bounding strength it is question-
able how many times the Wolver-
ines will get a chance to exhibit
their shooting talents.

Michigan's far-flung freshman
gymnasts will team with the
seniors tonight in an'intra-squad
meet against the sophomores and
juniors at 7:30: p.m. in the I-M
The nine freshmen are spread
intersectionally from Canada to
Tucson, Ariz., with only two from
Michigan. Only one of the var-
sity's nine is from the Wolverine
Coach Newt Loken attributes
this lack of home grown gymnasts
to the fact that there isn't much
of a high school gym program in
the state of Michigan as yet.
"However, the past four or five
years has seen a great increase in
gym participation here in. Mich-
igan," Loken said, "and another
few years should see more gym-
nasts here from the home state."
The three Michigan boys now
on the squad, frosh John Buss
from Ann Arbor and Lewis Fenner
from Port Huron, and junior Tom
Francis from Birmingham were
products of this recent upsurge.
As for the other seven fresh-
men, four of whom are from Can-
ada, Loken said that his recruit-
ing policy is a combination of
"I usually manage to see a few
.high school meets every year, in-
cluding Canadian ones, and the
Chicago Invitational (two frosh
are from the Chicago area) and
that's where I see a lot of the
boys. I also get letters from in-
t e r e s t e d people, usually high
school coaches, about prospects,
Loken ranks this year's fresh-
man team one of his best, "as a
group." "The fact that there are
nine of them, instead of the usual
two or three is outstanding in it-
self," the coach said.
Tonight's meet, the second in-
tra-squad affair, will feature the
freshmen, who lost to the varsity

Competing will be Gil LaRose,
Jim ,Hynds and Bob Harris in the

amoto, another tumbler.
The meet will be the varsity's
final tuneup before Saturday's
Midwest Open at Chicago.
Swim Gala Rescheduled
At least ten and probably 12
ames will keep Michigan's var-
lty basebaliers busy during an in-
mnsive eight-day training "session
i Arizona this spring.
The move, announced yester-
ay, is a departu're from the Wol-
erines' usual journey to Florida.
"In scheduling 10 to 12 games,
e can be sure of getting them all

here," explained Freshman Coach
[oby Benedict. "Rain in Florida

pected to be the major benefit of
the change in training sites.

Detroit's great sophomores beat
game, but the most pleasing aspect
of the scoring to coach Al Ren-
frew, was the fact that all three
lines showed punch, each line tak-
ing the major share of the glory
in one of the three wins.
The only problem arising out of
the trip was the loss of Carl White
for four weeks with a broken
thumb suffered in the Clarkson
The Wolverines started their
season off with a bang, as they
whitewashed St. Lawrence in their
first of two meetings, 6-0.
Fully recovered from a rocky
plane ride, the Michigan squad
showed a balanced attack, out-
shooting the Larries in every
stanza and scoring in each frame.
The sophomore line of Al Hin-
negan, Jerry Kolb and Joe Lung-
hammer produced half of the eve-
The ice was broken in a fairly
even first period when Gary Matt-
son, firing from the corner, car-
omed a shot off the shoulder of
the St. Lawrence goalie.
In the second stanza, the Wol-
verines really poured it on and
tallied three goals as Michigan
goalie Jim Coyle had only eight
saves to make on his way to his
first shutout since his junior
Steve Bochen, Lunghammer and
Pat Cushing scored in this period.
Cushing's breakaway after a pass
from Dale MacDonald, was the
backbreaker for the St. Lawrence
Early in the last frame, the Wol-
verines got a chance to practice
their power play as a penalty put
the Larries shorthanded. It took
only 46 seconds for Michigan to
cash in, as sharp passing'in close
finally gave Kolb an opening and
he took it for his first goal in a
Lunghammer dented the net for
the second time of the evening at
8:40 of the last period to round
out the rout of St. Lawrence.
In the second game, played at
Clarkston, the Wolverines kept
pouring goals into the nets and
Jim C'oyle kept the opposition's
shots out as Michigan racked up
its second shutout in two nights,
This was the night for the "yel-
low line," Bill Kelley, MacDonald
and Cushing, to shine. Kelley and
MacDonald each dumped in a pair,
of goals into the Clarkson nets
and Cushing got three assists for
his evening's work.
White, Mattson, Hinnegan and
Watt each lit the red light once
to fill out the scoring.
Coyle had his work cut out for
him in the dying seconds of the
game, as the Wolverines were short
two men because of penalties. But
the defensemen gave him beauti-
ful cover and cleared the puck four
times in the last minute and a half
to stretch his unscored upon
streak to 120 minutes.
Returning to Canton to face St.
Lawrence on Saturday, the Wol-
verines ran into an entirely dif-
ferent club. The fired-up Larries
outskated a tired Michigan squad
throughout most of the game.
Watt counted the first goal of
the evening, but St. Lawrence took
advantage of the fact that Michi-
gan was playing its third game in
three nights and played a race-
horse brand of hockey, scoring
three times in both the first and
The Wolverines came to life in
the last frame and almost pulled
it out of the fire. Trailing 4-2, they
knotted the score only to have the
Larries score two more quick goals
With two minutes left, Bochen
tallied to bring the Wolverines to
within one goal, but the clock ran
out with Michigan trying vainly
to catch up.
Still smarting over the loss to
St. Lawrence, Michigan ended its
road trip by methodically taking,
apart Toronto, 5-1.

Colorado should give Michigan
