So each part of this system has been chosen not only on the
basis of sound quality and reliability but also economy-

for the top players. Renfrew keeps
in contact with prospectivetre-

goes to see them play.
Before Gross arrived this year,'
players had to be given scholar-
ships on the basis of alumni rec-
ommendations and Junior League
records. Now, Gross or Renfrew
can go to see the players before
he recruits them.
Often, they spend a lot of tme

him go to another team. Renfrew
said he puts off recruiting until

years ago, I couldn't have come
here," said Connelly.
He explained that small .owns
don't offer playing opportunities.
If the Canadian boys want to play,
they have to go to a larger city
where they receive room and
board. The NCAA objects to this
compensation on the grounds that
the play is no longer amateur.
However, this rule gives the play-
ers from small towns a choice of
not playing at all or leaving home
and losing the opportunity to play
at an American university.
When Renfrew selects a nlayer,
he has to take into consideration
his playing ability, scholastic iec-
ord and his attitude on the ice.
"You have to know what you're
after. The players have to be will-
ing to give 100 per cent. My big-
gest problem is that I'm too criti-
cal of the players. I forget they're
too young," said Renfrew.
"The attitude on the ice is im-
portant," said Connelly. "When I
was playing in Montreal, my style
was good for the pros-hitting the
puck and fighting sometimes. Here
you can't do that. A person who
fights is really mad or really stu-
pid. You're hurting yourself and
you're hurting the team," s a i d
Connelly.
Renfrew also has to take into
consideration the players' scholas-
tic averages. "In Canada, 60 per
cent is not a bad average," said
Renfrew. However, the compara-

TRIPLE THREAT:
-arounders ea ymnasts

By BETSY MAHON
"
A successful college gymnastic
squad is composed of two distinct
groups of athletes. The most noted
are the specialists who perfect a
routine for one, or in a few cases
two, events. Then there are the
all arounders who must perform
reasonably well in all six events.
While the structure of the NCAA
gymnastics program allows the
specialists an excellent opportunity
for competition, taking part in
only one event is unheard of in
most other parts of the world. All-
Ji arrives
tion which consists of a number of
teams throughout the United
States.
The Association, founded in
1963, was formed with a threefold
purpose:
1. To educate disabled individ-
uals to the full use of their capa-
bilities.
2. To educate the public in ac-
ceptance of handcapped individ-
uals.
3. To contribute to individual
rehabilitation by participation and
incentive to compete in activities.
The Sparks have twelve mem-
bers from varying fields ranging
from engineering lab designers
and draftsmen to a physical ther-
apy assistant. The Players are not
required to be wheelchair ridden
to belong to the team however they
must have a lower limb disability
that makes normal athletic com-
petition impossible.
Rules for wheelchair basketball
are only slightly modified. The ma-
jor difference lies in rules con-
cerning dribbling where the wheel-
chair players are allotted a spe-
cific number of dribbles per turn
of the wheel of their chairs.
Scheduled for Saturday after-
noon's show is a full length exhibi-
tion game played among the Sparks
and another full length contest be-
tween the Sparks and another
wheelchair basketball team, the
Chicago Sidewinders.
But the highlight of the afternoon
should prove to be a halftime con-
test between the Sparks and the
Wolverine freshmen football team.
Both teams will be in wheelchairs.
Donations for the event are $1.00.
