IJUSKIES STARTED IT ALL:
By BOB MILLER
eighteen games and 15 losses ago, the Michigan hockey team was sitting on
top of the collegiate Hockey world.
Rated Number 1 in the country, Dan Farrell's squad had just completed a
two game massacre over defendin'g NCAA champion Wisconsin and set their
sights for first place in the WCHA.
.Then they played at Michigan Tech.
THE HUSKIES of Houghton were only a mediocre 7-7 overall at the time,
gerkerally splitting most of their two game series. But for whatever explanation
aniyone wishes to use, the combination of a Husky high and a Wolverine low
resulted in two lopsided victories for Tech.
Since that time, MTU has gone 14-4 to climb steadily in the WCHA ranks
where the Huskies are currently in third place, one game out of second.
Since the tables have turned so completely from the last time these two
teams have met, it would be justified if the Wolverines could come up with a pair
But don't hold your breath.
TECH WILL be the same swarming pack of hungry Huskies that hounded the
Michigan defense for 21 goals in the three confrontations this season. The
Wolverines were only able to counter with eight.
The singular feature about the Tech team is their size. There are six Huskies
that hover over the 6-3 mark with Gord Salt leading the way at 6-5.
Ironically, the shortest player on the team, Dave Joelson is the Huskies
leading scorer. Joelson's 22 goals ranks as tops for MTU as does his 39 points. He
is tied with Stu Ostlund, both in all games and just in league play (31 points each).
BUT IT IS MTU's defense that is coach John MacInnes' trademark. Tech has
given up only 112 goals in the league, better than everyone else except Denver
(94) and Wisconsin (101).
While the Huskies will be attempting to move into second place this weekend,
the Wolverines will again try to keep their heads above water.
Michigan is in seventh place with four games remaining. But fifth place
Colorado College is only one game.ahead of the Wolverines.
MICHIGAN WILL keep their eyes on a make up series between Notre Dame
and North Dakota which will be played on February 28-March 1 in Grand Forks.
The Irish are currently one point up on Michigan and the Sioux are four behind.
Notre Dame plays at MSU and the NoDak's host Wisconsin this weekend.
The race for the number five through eight positions in the league will
probably go down to the final night of the season. .
The Wolverines need one victory over Tech either tonight or tomorrow just to
stay in contention for the first round of the WCHA playoffs. The games start at
7:30 at Yost both nights.

HOS T INVITATIONA L
Strid ers tune-up
By KEVIN ROSEBOROUGH
Tonight's Wolverine Invitational track meet represents the final
skirmish for the men's track team before the Big Ten championship battle
In what is considered by track Coach Jack Harvey "a lowkey meet," the
Wolverines are looking to tune up their performancesfor the Big Ten meet.
"We've trained hard all week," said Harvey, "but are definitely looking to
the Big Ten meet."
While the focus of the team is on the league competition next week at
West Lafayette, a good night of quality performances is expected. Squads
from Bowling Green, Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan, and Central
Michigan will be in attendance. This meet is the last chance for many of the
teams to qualify their athletes for the NCAA championships in two weeks.
Due to a wave of illnesses that has been sweeping the team in recent
weeks, the status of several athletes is questionable for the meet. Bill
Donakowski, Michigan's co-captain and premier miler, has a cold but is ex-
pected to compete. Distance men Steve Elliot and Jim Baumgartner are
down with the flu and it's doubtful they'll be able to perform. Shotputter
Randy Ross, also a flu victim, will probably be absent from the lineup as
The Wolverines are coming off a big win last weekend at the Central
Collegiate Championships at Ypsilanti. The Wolverine striders hurdled,
jumped, ran and vaulted their way to their third straight CCC title on the
strength of firsts by Arnett Chisholm, James.Henry, Bill Donakowski, and
Jim Stokes. "It was a big Win for us," said Harvey. "We always like to beat
the local teams."
The Wolverine Invitational is the final opportunity for fans to see the
Michigan indoor track squad at home this season. The thinclads, serious
contenders for this year's Big Ten indoor track crown, were edged out for-the
title last year by a mere point.
The action at the Track and Tennis Building starts at 5:00 p.m. this
evening with the long jump. The running events begin at 6:15 p.m.

Gary Snyder writes in his introductory note that
Turtle Island is "the old/new name for the con- -
tinent, based on many creation myths of the s
people who have been here for millennia, and
reapplied by some of them to 'North America'
in recent years." The nearly five dozen poems
in the book range from the lucid, lyrical, almost mystical to the mytho-biotic,
while a few are frankly political. All, however, share a common vision: a
rediscovery of this land and the ways by which we might become natives of
the place, ceasing to think and act (after all these centuries) as newcomers
and invaders. A tentative cross-fertilization of ecological thought with Buddhist
ideas of interpenetration is also suggested, reflecting the poet's own life with
his family and comrades in the foothills of the California Sierras.

NEW YORK - Promoter Don King

Leon Spinks $2 million to defend his title
against Ken Norton in May or June, a
spokesman for King said yesterday.'
The spokesman said King has been
negotiating with Norton for the bout.

fight would sign to defend against Nor-
ton by July 7 or be stripped of the title
