Dark brown cowhide boot-

By KEN COHN
T h e Wolverine gymnastic
marvels, virtually unstoppable
so far this year, should find
this week's opponent a challeng-
ing, but not awesome, obstacle
on the route to the Big Ten
a n d national championships.
That team is Ohio State, and
the Michigan tumblers should,
if all goes well, be able to give
their school a 2-1badvantage ov-
er the Buckeyes in all athletic
events so far this year.
*The squads pair off at 1:30
Saturday in Crisler Arena in a
meet that will provide a person-
al challenge to at least three
Wolverines. Mike Sale, who
turned in a 9.45 on the rings
last week against Minnesota and
Ed Howard and Jim Scully, who
turned in 9.5 and 9.4 high bar
scores against the Gophers, will
all be coming off career highs.
The entire team, for that mat-
ter, will be shooting to top last
week's season high team score,
an astronomical 164.05, which
averaged out to over 9.1 for each
of the three top finishers in
each event.
They'll be making the attempt
against a team led by .all-
arounder Reed Klein, w h o is
capable of scoring above 50 in
the six events. Klein w ill be
backed up by Jack Leonard, a
standout in the floor exercises,
who will display a double back

somersault during h i s routine
tomorrow.
Mike Kniffen, swinging on the
rings, Steve Meyer vaulting the
long horse, and Jerry Sowards,
leading the Buckeyes on t h e
high bar are other Ohio State
standouts.
Coach Newt Loken will fill
his lineup with as many as six
or seven men in each event, al-
though they won't all be com-
peting. Mike Fanshel on the side
horse and Skip Frowick on the
rings, who have seen little ac-
tionin competition thus far this
season, will face a home au-
dience for the first time tomor-
row.
The Wolverines' three all-
around team of Rick McCurdy,
Ted Marti, and Ray Gura, will
be in high gear as usual; their
monopoly on versatility, will be
threatened, though, not only by
Ohio State, b u t by a special
performer - Cherry Almy, one
of the Midwest's to p women
gymnasts and a probable Olym-
pic contender.
The Charlotte, Michigan gym-
natrix will exhibit her own
skills during the meet, un-
doubtedly providing a different
perspective on the pleasures of
gymnastic spectating.
In addition to the distaff par-
ticipation, tomorrow's meet will
include an informal competition
displaying Olympic compulsory
routines, ones which a r e not
part of any regular Michigan
meets this year, but which will
be required during the Big Ten
championships next month.
Loken expressed the hope that
besides giving the gymnasts
some valuable specialized exper-
ience, the routines would pro-
vide the audience with a differ-
ent view of Michigan gymnastic
competition -- one that is
Olympic in f o r m as well as
"Olympic" in quality.

Michigan's icers. already as-
sured of a losing WCHA season,
will attempt to get back on the
winning track tonight when they
take on the partially defanged
Wisconsin Badgers.
Wisconsin will be doing with-
out the services of Murray Heat-
ley, their leading scorer,. wbo
completed his eligibility last
week. Unhappily, however, even
without Heatley, the Badgers will
prove to be formidable opponents
tonight and tomorrow in Madison.
According to Wolverine coach
Al Renfrew, Wisconsin "works
hard, skates hard, they forecheck
well and they're on you all the
time."
In their previous meeting in
Ann Arbor the two teams split,
Michigan winning the first game,
5-4, in overtime, and Wisconsin
coming back the next night, 5-3.
With only six games left in the
r e g u 1 a r season, Michigan's
chances of making the playoffs
appear dim. With a 4-12 confer-
ence mark, the Wolverines are
two games behind Minnesota.
Minnesota and Michigan will
collide head on in Minneapolis
for two games in the next-to-last
week of the season. In case of a

tie, the team with the best goals-
for against goals-against percent-
age will advance to the playoffs.
Following last week's double
loss to Michigan Tech, Renfrew
reworked his lines in practice.
Tonight's action will find Bernie
Gagnon on the ice with Rick
Malette and freshman Julian
Nixon. Meanwhile Mike Jarry
will move back on defense and
Renfrew will be shifting five de-
fensemen around in an attempt
to give goalie Karl Bagnell more
help. Bagnell will play both
nights while Bill Busch will re-
main on the bench.
As for the line changes Ren-
frew says simply, "We'll try and
see if something else would work
better."
Even with the loss of Heatley,
however, R e n f r e w admits
"they've got enough (good play-
ers) not to have to worry about
it."
The Badgers have been rotat-
ing several men in the net with
John Anderson their most con-
sistent performer. Anderson has
a sparkling 2.56 goals allowed
per game average. Freshman
Jim MaKey has also seen ex-
tensive action in the net.
The defense, led by all-Ameri-
can John Jagger gives the net-
minders plenty of help.
Up on the front line Jim Boyd
will be giving the Wolverines
trouble along with center Jim
Young, sophomore winger Norm
Cherrey and freshman surprise
Gary Winchester.
With Michigan inhabiting the
cellar, it comes as no shock that
Renfrew feels the year has been
"disappointing." He adds that
it is "unfortunate, they (the
team) have worked so hard and
just haven't had a good year."
With five of their last six
games on the road, Michigan is
going to have to completely re-
verse its ice fortunes if it wants
to make it to the playoffs. And
it will take at least a split this
weekend for the floundering Wol-
verines to remain above water.
