THE MICHIGAN DAILY
GOVERNOR'S CUP AT STAKE!
By PAUL CAMPBELL
Here's a trivia question for
all Michigan hockey fans --
What is the significance of a
trophy called the Governor's
Well, we all know the answer
to that. The Governor's Cup is
the famous trophy originated
by former state chief executive
George Romney to be given an-
nually to the team scoring the
most goals in the two game ser-
ies during Michigan Tech's BlueI
Key Winter Carnival.
The cup used to represent
college hockey supremacy in
the state. Tech would host

Tankers Canada bound
The Michigan's men swimming team travels to Canada for
two meets this weekend. Tonight the tankers visit Western
Ontario, and tomorrow the Wolverines take on Toronto.
These two meets represent a break for the swimmers. The
trip is basically for fun, but the meets will give the tankers a
chance to keep in shape.
A special grant from the Canadian government pays for the
Michigan team's travel expenses.
Assistant coach Pat Bauer commented, "The trip is
mainly for fun. The meets will give some of the guys a
chance to swim odd events."
By the odd events, Bauer meant events that the swimmers
do not normally swim.
"We will also be putting some of our strong guys in their
events, so the Canadians get to see how we swim them," Bauer
Tumblers hit road
Both the men's and women's gymnastics teams hit the road
this weekend for dual meets as the men travel to Iowa City,
Iowa to face the Hawkeyes and the women travel to Kalamazoo
to face Western Michigan in a scrimmage meet..
Iowa, Big Ten champions in 1974, have not shown excep-
tional form yet this year. Last weekend, the Hawkeye tum-
blers only managed 194 points in a dual contest against
Illinois. Nevertheless, Michigan coach Newt Loken remains
wary, labeling Iowa as a "formidable foe" on the Hawkeye's
Top performers for Iowa include Bob Semienowski on the
pommel horse, Mark Reefkind in the all-around and George Way-
kerland on the high bar.
M skiers second
The Michigan men and women's ski teams raced to second
place last weekend in the Detroit News Race at Alpine Valey.
The Wolverines scored 72 points in the men's division, one point
behind Notre Dame, as John Dehlin placed first in the slalom
event. Michigan State won the women's division with 54 points,!
ten points ahead of Michigan.

is simply a matter of survival.
The Wolverines league record
of 13-9 leaves them three full
games behind the Huskies.

The above represents a fic-

So far, Neiswender has been
a paragon of consistency. His

include two three-win days and
one two-victory afternoon.
You can also depend on Ed

scoring. His lone superior deci-

ing the season's opening triple

Michigan State freshman Mike
Since then, the lanky (6-3),l
deceptively strong junior has
notched six or fewer points in
ten of his eleven other wins.
"I JUST never was a pin-

"Out of 65 or 70 matches, I've
only pinned two people." 3
