of improvement was attributable
to its offense's inconsistency and
inability to tally in the clutch. Ac-
cording to Coach Smith, "With a
year's experience and a more ma-
ture club, this displeasing statistic
should take care of itself."
A notable contradiction in the
hockey contingents of Notre Dame
and Michigan this season is thej
role of freshmen. First-year men
are nonexistent on the Irish roster.
The Wolverines, on the contrary,
carry 40 per cent freshmen.
MICHIGAN'S RENFREW, wit-
ness to Notre Dame's victory,
chose his words carefully in assess-
ing his coming opponents. He ar-
ticulated, "They are a physical,
strong and aggressive bunch. We
will definitely have to stay on the,
ice to defeat them."
Reviewing the Wolverines' er-
ratic performance over the week-'
end, Renfrew pointed out that "our:
goaltending and defense were good,
but we didn't shoot enough. We,
hesitated too long on offense while
making our plays.'
So the stage is set for 8 p.m.
action tonight at Notre Dame.

0 DETROIT--Second-year guard John Mengelt was acquired, by'
the Detroit Pistons of the National Basketball Association yesterday
from the Kansas City-Omaha Kings in exchange for the second-round4
draft choice the Pistons acquired in an earlier trade with Buffalo.
To make room on the roster Detroit released guard Harvey Marlatt.
It was the second time the former Eastern Michigan University star
was dropped by the Pistons, the other time being last December after
11 years with the team.
The 6-foot-3 Men gelt, who set a three-year scoring average record'
of 24.8 points a game at Auburu University, averaged 10.3 points as}
a rookie last year with the Cincinnati Royals-who became the Kings
this year. In 12 games this season he averaged 5.1 points.

continue in the second spot. Tech is 9-0.
