ACTION RULES THE DAY-And there was plenty of it on the
ice of the Michigan Coliseum here last night as Michigan's high-
scoring Wolverines rocked the Tigers of Colorado College, 8-2.
Steve Bochen (5) of the Wolverines (left) is set up outside of
the Colorado goal mouth waiting for a pass in the second period.
Bochen scored later on a shot from a mixup outside the net.
The action at mid-ice came late in the game as the Wolver-
ines were short a man and ragged the puck to kill the penalty.

The Wolverines were short a man on five different occasions,
but managed to escape without having been scored upon.
One of the big reasons for Michigan's success thus far this
season has been the work of the defensemen, led by captain
Bobbie Watt. Here (right) Watt throws a hip into Brian Bleakney
(8) of Colorado as Bleakney attempts to lift a shot past Jim
Coyle.
Last night was the first time in three years that Michigan
fans have been able to see a Wolverine squad of powerhouse
potential. Tonight, the two teams will play a rematch on the
Coliseum Ice.

the face - off and dove into the
Michigan end of the rink, letting
only 20 seconds elapse before cen-
ter Wayne Gee beat Jim Coyle
from right in front of the net.
' Midway through the period, Bill
Kelly broke loose down the left
boards, tralied by Steve Bochen
across the ice. Kelly passed back
to Steve Bochen who rifled a shot
past Young to give the Wolverines
the lead they never relinquished.
Sloppy Play
The remainder of the period was
marked by sloppy play by both
teams. The Wolverines were able
to keep pressure on the Tigers, who
were playing their first' game of
the season, but couldn't get any
shots off.
After Michigan had ripped the
three quick goals through Young
in the second period, the Tigers
fell apart and the Wolverines'
romped at will through a col-
lapsed defense.
Gerry Kolb and White broke

away twice within 35 seconds, with
Kolb getting solo. shots at the
Colorado goalie both times. The
first time, Young shut the door,
but, Kolb wasn't to be denied. On
his second dash up the ice, he
faked the Tiger netminder to his'
knees and tucked a shot into the
corner of the net for Michigan's
sixth score.
Bochen Scores
Before Young could catch his
breath, Bochen picked the puck
out of a scramble in front of the
net and laid home the seventh
goal, only 37 seconds after Kolb's.
Play slowed somWhat in the
third frame as each team tallied
once. Mateka, who had opened the
scoring, wrapped it up for the Wol-
verines 17 seconds after coming
on the ice from the penalty box.
With Michigan a man short, Ma-
teka broke away and beat the
Tiger goalkeeper to the corner.
Lettinig up a little with the big
lead, the Wolverines let Jerry
Maiko slip through the defens*
and past Coyle to. drop the game's
last tally into the net.

The Tigers were ready to pick
up a few more consolation goals
with a minute and a half left in
the game. Goalie Coyle suffered a
bruised knee in a pileup and had ,
to leave the game.
The Wolverines, who carry no
spare netminder, called on de-
fenseman'John Palenstein to guard
the goalmouth-minus pads. But
Michigan kept the visitors checked
at mid-ice and didn't allow a shot
on goal in the closing seconds.
Coyle is expected to be ready
for tonight's return engagementI
with the Tigers, as Michigan hopes
to sweep the series from the in-
vaders and keep a clean league
record.

'M' Gymnasts To Compete
In Midwest Tourney Today

It's Elliott vs. Elliott
If Pete Gets Illi*ni Job

,.
.,

By FRED KATZ
Associate Sports Editor
It. would create a ticklish situ-
ation but Bump Elliott is all for
younger brother Pete taking the
head football coaching job at Il-
linois if and when it's offered.
"Actually, I don't even know
whether Pete's a candidate for the
job," said the 34-year-old Michi-
gan head coach. "All I know is
what has been rumored. I haven't
talked to him about it."
Pete is reported to be one of
two ex-Michigan stars in line to
replace Rya Eliot, who has just
relinquished his coaching duties
after an 18-year career at Illinois.
The other supposed nominee is
Dave Nelson, coach at Delaware,
who is co-author (with Iowa's
Forrest Evashevski) of the wing-T
formation.
What's Best
"My only consideration is what
is best for Pete," said Bump. If he
can improve himself professional-
ly by moving from California to
Illinois, he naturally has my full
support."

However, Bump doesn't want to
give the impression that he would.
enjoy being pitted against his
brother.
"I'd certainly hate to compete
against him," is his natural re-
action.
If Pete does join Bump in the
Big Ten, their two teams would
meet in Michigan Stadium Nov. 5
next season. And it would be the
first time the two men ever would
have competed against each other
formally.
Friendly Rivalry
"Of course, we have a friendly
rivalry whenever we compete in
anything," reveals Bump. "For
instance, Pete hates to lose to me
in golf because he's a lot better
than I am. But we're close enough
that there have never been any
problems."
Pete has not denied that he
might be interested in taking the
Champaign, Ill. job, only 50 miles
from his hometown of Blooming-
ton, althqugh he says he is happy
at California.
A 12-letter man for the Wolver-
ines (four each in football, bas-
ketball and golf), Pete has
coached the Golden Bears the
past three years. His record at
Berkeley is 1-9, and 2-8.
Only one year has expired on
his present three-year contract.
The announcement of Eliot's
successor is expected to be made
not later than Dec. 16 by Illini
Athletic Director Doug Mills.

Michigan's gymnastics team has
converged en masse on Chicago
for today's Midwest Open featur-
ing many top stars from the Big
Ten in a one-day marathon tour-
nament.
The action begins at 9 a.m. with
preliminaries and ends around
10:30 p.m. with an afternoon ses-
ssion in between. It will give the
Wolverine contenders their first
chance to prove themselves against
outside competition.
Accomplished gymnasts such as
Don Tonry, leader of last year's
Big Ten champs, Illinois, will pro-
vide a stern test for Michigan in
its attempt to win the team title.

Although Tonry will be com-
peting unattached, Illinois still has

Michigan Coach Newt Loken
phrased it, to keep Illini hopes
high.

ines an opportunity to compare
with other Big Ten squads.
Michigan, which will be trying
to improve on last year's third
place finish, will have all-around
men Rich Montpetit, Al Stall, and
Wolf Dozauer, top three finishers
in Wednesday's intra-squad meet.
Feinberg Adds Depth
The Wolverines also have Barry
Feinberg in the high bar to add
depth as he surprised many with
his finest Michigan peformance
in that same meet.
Jim Brown and Bill Skinner will
add team strength in tumbling as
they were third and fourth re-
spectively in last year's NCAA
tourney. Loken calls this team
"one which is shaping up quite
well. We're ready and hopes are
high."
A few members of the freshman
squad also went along to compete
unattached along with Ron Munn,
the Wolverines' best trampolinist
who is ineligible this semester.
Munn will be a top contender for
i n di v i d u a 1 trampoline honors
based on previous performances.

Michigan will be seeking its first
victory of the season tonight when
it opens its 1959-60 home basket-
ball schedule against Drake at 8
p.m. in the Yost Barn.
Wolverine Coach Bill Perigo in-
dicated he will give sophomore
forward Scott Maentz his first
starting assignment and move
John Tidwell back to a guard
position.
"The thing we lack the most is
rebounding strength and we es-
pecially need it against a tall
club like Drake," said Perigo. "Al-
though Maentz has been practic-
ing for only two weeks, he is
strongand quick on the back-
boards," he added.
Played End
The reason for Maentz late start
is that the rugged yearling played
end this fall for Bump Elliott's
corps.
"Maentz has yet to get his legs
under him on the hardwood; thus,
it is doubtful whether he can play
anywhere near a full 40 minute
game," said Perigo. "However,
while he is in there, we are hoping
that his strength under the boards
will help us get our fast break
offense going." Also, Maentz is
not lacking in talent to hit the
strings. He showed this in the
opener at Pittsburgh where he was
the team's third leading scorer
with 10 points.
The Wolverines' inability to
clear the boards quickly enough
against Pittsburgh was a major
factor in the 73-57 loss, as Michi-

Globetrotters add to Winning Streak;
Put on Entertainment for Crowd

By DAVE LYON
Associate Sports Editor
The Harlem Globetrotters won
a basketball game last night at
Ann Arbor High gymnasium, but
if the uncertainty of the game's
result had been the only incentive
for attendance, many of the 2,500
spectators probably would not
have shown.
Since the Trotters have a win-
ning streak of 460-plus games still
going, the outcome of one of their
games is hardly an issue any more.
So promoter Abe Saperstein,
who began all this Globetrotter
business 33 years ago, has provided
top-flight entertainment to delight
crowds before and at halftime of
each Trotter contest.
Last night the spectators saw
some fast, sparkling women's in-
door tennis played by Althea Gib-
son, one of the all-time greats,
and young, vivacious Karol Fa-
geros. Miss Fageros is a top-flight
performer, and put up a stiff bat-
tle before losing to Miss Gibson,
former Wimbledon champion,
eight games to six.
That was the pre-game ,enter-
tainment. At the half there were
three other acts, presented one at
