DETROIT-Gordie Howe scored
the 850th goal of his National"
Hockey League career as the De-
troit Red Wings skated to a 5-3
victory over the Minnesota North
Stars last night and climbed out
of the East Division cellar.
Howe's goal came on a power
play at 17:39 of the second period
and gave Detroit a 4-2 lead. The
850 total includes playoff goals,
and the tally gave the 41-year-old
superstar his 22nd consecutive 20-
goal season.
The triumph pulled Detroit into
sixth place, one point ahead of
idle Vancouver.
The teams traded first-period
goals with Jude Trouin scoring
his 13th of the season for the
North Stars at 6:46 and Alex Del-
vecchio netting his 14th at 13:37
for Detroit.
A goal by Gordon Labossiere,
his 16th, gave Minnesota a 2-1
lead at 2:04 of the second period,
but then the Wings pulled away
with consecutive goals by Phil Col-
lins, Nick Libbett and Howe.
Detroit's final tally was by re-
cently-acquired Red B e r e n s o n
whose slap shot at three minutes
of the final period slithered past
goalie Cesar Maniago.
Bobby Rousseau added a goal
for the North Stars at 9:41 of the
final period.

It was Marshall's second goal of
the game. His first, at 15:21 of the
second period, climaxed a Buffalo
rally that saw the Sabres tally four
straight goals within six minutes
for a 5-4 lead to erase an early 3-0
Pittsburgh lead.

RICK McCURDY, Michigan' star all-arounder is seen going

undefeated tumblers visit Illinois and tomorrow travel to Indiana.

It will be a very nostalgic week-
end for Michigan hockey followers
beginning tonight as the Wolver-
ines renew a hockey series that
began nearly 50 years ago.
Tonight's game with Notre Dame
marks the first time the two teams
have met since the early 1920's and
it will also be Michigan's 1000th
varsity game since records initially
were kept in the 1922-23 season.
But the Michigan-Notre Dame ice
hockey rivalry began before that
as the Fighting Irish first played
the game on the campus at South
Bend in 1919. Father William Cun-
ningham, a figure skater at the
time, noticed two students ventur-
ing down to St. Joseph's Lake with
hockey sticks in hand and before
long Rev. Cunningham was coach-

Tigers' Hiller
DETROIT (o') - The Detroit Ti-
gers announced yesterday the loss
~l for an indefinite period of t i m e
lefthander John Hiller who suf-
fered a heart attack Jan. 11 at his
home in Duluth, Minn.
In making the announcement,
the club said it was notified of
Hiller's illness Monday but had
not received confirmation of the
Duluth diagnosis until yesterday.
Hiller is no longer hospitalized,
but he will be placed on the dis-
abled list at the start of the sea-
son, according to Tiger General
Manager Jim Campbell.
Doctors at Ford hospital in De-
troit described the attack as a
* small coronary occlusion and have
asked for a re-evaluation exami-
nation about May 1 to determine
Hiller's future status.
A Canadian who spent f i v e
seasons in the minors before join-
ing the Tigers, in June, 1967, Hill-
er has a 23-19 overall m a ior
'. league record.
Hiller said he was unaware of
~the seriousness of his illness, and
therefore hadn't notified the Tig-
ers until Monday.
"I was never in any great pain,"
he said from his Duluth home. "I
was surprised and shocked to find
it would take this long to recov-
er. I'm depressed, but other than
that I feel OK."

Hockey at Michigan grew at a
much slower pace but it has con-
tinued uninterrupted since the ear-
ly 1920's. Michigan didn't become
a national power until the late
1940's when Vic Heyliger came on-
to the scene as the Michigan coach.
He directed the 1947-48 edition of
the Wolverines to their first na-
tional championship and later
added five more national crowns in-
cluding three straight from 1951
through 1953. Present Coach Al

"Rick Jackson won't be ready,"
affirmed assistant coach Phil
Gross, "but we're not sure about
Punch (Cartier)."
Both Jackson and Cartier suf-
fered shoulder injuries and Car-
tier has "skated during practice
but he has had no contact work
this week," Gross mentioned. "Be-
ing that it is a non-conference game
he may sit out tonight."

By The Associated Press
Official Big Ten statistics re-
leased yesterday presaged a two-
player scrap for the individual
scoring crown between Indiana's
star sophomore, George McGinnis,
and Iowa's veteran Fred Brown.
McGinnis this week recaptured
the lead from Brown as the
brawny Hoosier pumped in 71
points in two games for a 31.7
league season average. Brown
dropped a shade behind at 31.1.
Michigan's fine soph, Henry Wil-
more, skidded from the 30-point
plateau for the first time with a
27.4 mark.
McGinnis held the rebound lead,
averaging 15.8 retrieves, with aj
trio of other sophs closing in on
the Hoosier. They include Mich-
igan State's Bill Kilgore with 13.2;
Michigan's Ken Brady with 12.9,
and Minnesota's Jim Brewer with
C 12.5.

Michigan, playing host tomorrow
to Minnesota, 2-6, is still the Big
Ten scoring leader with an 89.1
average. Next is Indiana, 5-2, with
87.0 and lowly Northwestern, 1-6,
is third with 84.2.

Neumann continues to close in
on Pete Maravich's major college
scoring record, even though he has
tailed off somewhat in his last,
three starts.
Although he would have to av-
erage a whopping 52.8 points in
his last five games to break the
former LSU player's sophomore
record of 43.8, Neumann needs

It was on the side horse that
Michigan seemed to have m o s t

Illinois' star performer, Ken

of less than nine. If Illinois hopes

to spoil a Wolverine sweep in all
