Creating a new world with-electronics
AN EQUAL OPPORTUNIlY EMPLOYER M/F
BY JON WELLS
Somehow the storyline got twisted
around this year in the WCHA. Certain
teams, particularly the Michigan
Wolverines, have said 'nay' to the roles
they were assigned to in the pre-season
script. The result of this rewrite is that
when the defending cellar-dwellers in-
vade the nest of the defending NCAA
champions this weekend in Min-
neapolis, the former will receive top
When Michigan travelled north to
play the University of Minnesota last
winter they were greeted by stifled
laughter, squashed 8-2 and 10-5, and put
on the plane with an enthusiastic in-
vitation to come back soon.
THIS WEEKEND, however, the
Wolverines will arrive in Hockeyland,
U.S.A. with a sturdy overall 18-5-1
record, a secure grip on second place in
the WCHA, two games ahead of the
third place Gophers, and toting the top
scorer in the nation. A major rewrite, to

say the least.
There is more. Last year Michigan
dragged a battered and bruised crop of
forwards and a gun-shy goalie into the
less-than-hospitable confines of
Williams Arena. This weekend they
bring a well-oiled offensive machine,
long on firepower and short on injuries,
and a goaltender, Paul Fricker; who
limited the Gophers to only four goals
during the Wolverines' two-game early
season sweep of Minnesota at Yost.
Gopher interim coach Brad Buetow
has more than a little respect for the
'new' Michigan team: "They feature
the best trio of centers in the WCHA
with Dan Lerg, Murray Eaves and
"AND THAT goalie Fricker, man,"
continued Buetow, "his performance
down there against us was the best I
have seen. He stole both games from
us. Our men peppered him with an in-
credible array of shots, but he turned us
away. When he is hot he is simply.
Let us not forget, however, 'that
Buetow's superlatives are offered from
a position of considerable strength. The
Gophers, at 15-9-0 overall and 11-9-0 in
the WCHA, can move to within .003 per-
centage points of the Wolverines with a
sweep this weekend. They are coming
off two big wins (7-3, 6-4) at Denver,
and have compiled twelve victories
against only two losses on their home
An interesting sidelight in the series
will be the battle for the WCHA in-
dividual scoring lead between Min-
nesota's senior right win Tim Harrer
(24-17-41 in 20 games) and Michigan's
Murray Eaves (16-24--40 in 14 games).
The two-game taigle also showcases
two of the strongest candidates for the
WCHA rookie of the year in the persons
of Minnesota's Aaron Broten (12-23-35
in 20 games) and Michigan's Bruno
Baseotto (13-14-27 in 14 games) .
THIS WEEKEND'S trip north is the
first of Michigan's two series road trip4
that includes a joust with the Pioneers
at Denver next weekend. This is an im-
portant and difficult test for the high-
flying Wolverines who have managed
only a 1-4 road record on WCHA cam-
puses. Michigan coach Dan Farrell is
wary of both the Gophers and the road.
"When we beat Minnesota it was
early and the games were very tight,"
said Farrell. "They actually outplayed
us for much of the two games. They
skate very well - they are probably the
best we will play all year."
Farrell also emphasized that the rink
in Williams Arena is both wider and
longer than most, benefitting a team
like Minnesota that can fly when given
some open ice. Although Farrell
refused to cite crowd intimidation as a
.factor this weekend, you can be sure
that the unfamiliar setting will hampe*
the Michigan homebodies.

Hard facts about tumblers' hands

Soft hands - if dishwashing liquid

great joys. But for the aspiring gym-

Rub the palms of your hands
together: Harder. In a crude way,
you've just duplicated what every
gymnast who works high bar, rings,
parallel bars and side horse experien-
ces daily. Just as athletes condition
their joints and muscles, the gymnasts'
hands "get in shape" as callouses form
As a high bar specialist, senior Doug
Zahour must cope with "hot hands"
frequently. "They (his hands) often
hurt at the beginning of practice," said
Zahour, "but after a couple times up on
the bar, you forget about the pain: If
you don't, you really can't concentrate
Observant spectators at gym meets
probably recall that gymnasts don't
simply rely on dead skin and a macho
philosophy to survive, though. A thin
leather pad, called a grip, can be strap-
ped to the palm for added protection. In
addition, this small piece of "second
skin" allows the gymnast to maintain
their grip without having to grasp the
apparatus too tightly.
But callouses and "grips" are still not
sufficient. Every gymnast goes through

some kind of daily, ritual to maintain,
"It's important to keep your hands
moist," explained ringman Darrell
Yee. "If they dry out, the callouses can
crack or rip."
Daily application of a cream or lotion
is a must, especially during the dry
Michigan winters of the gym season,
Junior Chris Van Mierlo said that some
mornings he has to rUn hot water on his
hands to loosen the skin enough for him
to move them without pain.

callouses, though. "Sometimes T sand

The goal of these rituals is to main-

Ironically, keeping their hands moist
is just the opposite of what the gymnast
wants during practice and competition.
Sweaty palms make it harder to main-

how well they maintain their handi

"If my hands are good," said Zahour,
"it gives me the confidence to do well."
