dermen rolled to a lop-sided vic-
tory in a triangular meet with
Ohio State University and Mich-
igan State Normal yesterday aft-
ernoon at Yost Field House.
The Wolverines' 103%/2 points

ONE of the few Ohio State first
places was taken by Don Bartels
who captured the 880-yard run.

Playing what might turn out to
be a preview of the final game of
the NCAA playoffs, Michigan's de-
fending champions closed out
their Western Hockey League
schedule yesterday afternoon by
dumping Minnesota's Gophers, 5-2
at the Coliseum.
The victory made it a sweep of
the two-game series and brings
Michigan's final league record to
12 wins, three losses, and a tie,
worth 18%/z points in the scoring
column. This puts the Wolverines
in second place behind the Go-
phers who wind up the season with

THE WOLVERINES p r o v e d
I quite ponclusively that the final
standing is no indication of Michi-
gan's ability as they outhustled,
outskated, and outplayed the
league title-holders for the second
day in a row.
With nothing more at stake
than prestige, both teams hav-
ing already clinched playoff
berths, the Maize and Blue sex
tet refused to loaf and coasted
home after piling up a 5-1 mar-
gin in the first two periods.
The big break for Michigan
came near the end of the second
period when the Wolverine puck-
men scored four times within two
minutes, three of the four coming
within 27 seconds.
DOUG PHILPOTT started the
scoring barrage as he took the
puck from linemate Yves Hebert

from his own blue line that result-
ed in the goal that put Michigan
out in front to stay.
Minnesota center Jack Mona-
han was then handed his most
costly penalty of the year when
he was waved off the ice for
board-checking less than minute
later. While he was gone, the
Michigan power play clicked
three times in rapid succession
and sewed up the contest for
Vic Heyliger's crew.
Big Bill MacFarland, who tal-
lied the opening goal of the game
early in the first period, was the
playmaker each time as he as-
sisted on goals by Pat Cooney, Jim
Haas, and George Chin. Doug Mul-
len picked up assists on the first
and third markers while Chin aid-
ed on Haas' tally.
WHILE it was Michigan's well
balanced offense that produced its'
margin of victory, it was mainly
Willard Ikola who preserved it.

had been set by Konno three
weeks ago against Indiana.
Yoshi Oyakawa, Buckeye back-!
stroke star, set the other world
mark while swimming the first leg
of the 300-yard medley relay. His
record time of :55.7 is an unoffi-
cial mark since it was a part of
the relay, but the national back-
stroke champion will apply for of-
ficial recognition of the perform-
ance. His spectacular effort broke
his own mark of :56.1.
