THAYER TUTT. the late owner of the lavish Broadmoor Hotel in
Colorado Springs, was never a host who would allow his guests to
become bored. He built two golf courses, three swimming pools, a mon-
key zoo, assorted shrines and monuments, an artificial lake (complete
with ducks, goldfish and seals), a rodeo stadium and an indoor polo
arena-all to occupy his guests when they tired of basking in the
salubrious mile-high climate.
Different forms of entertainment came and went, and when indoor
polo waned in popularity, the pink stucco building that had housed
the sport was converted into an indoor skating rink and hockey sta-
dium. It provided a fitting home for the great teams of Colorado Col-
lege, tin resort-type educational institution tucked into the Rocky
Mountains at the Springs.
When the National Collegiate Athletic Association decided to
award an NCAA title to the top collegiate hockey team in the
nation, the Broadmoor sensed its opportunity and offered to
house, feed and publicize the tournament. The owners of the giant
resort hotel expected the home town Colorado College team to be a.
perennial entry in the championships.
What began more or less as a showcase for Colorado College and
a divertisement for the Broadmoor's paying customers soon became
r the springboard to national prominence for Coach Vic Heyliger and
his, amazing University of Michigan hockey teams. Heyliger took top
honors in the first tournament held in 1948 and after finishing third
for the next two years, the Wolverines got back in the championship
groove and won championships in 1951, 1952 and 1953.

The Old Reliable ...
MICHIGAN, THE ACTUAL "perennial" tournament choice is back
at Colorado Springs this year and favored to retain its crown.
From here it looks as if the odds are wrong-we think that Michigan
will win, but by all rights they shouldn't. Confusing-well maybe, but
an explanation will explain the Wolverines' "favorite-underdog" po-
sition in the tournament that begins tomorrow.
A combination of factors stand against the Wolverines. They will
only skate two lines in the rarified Colorado air-that's a hard thing
to do and get away with. Last year mighty Minnesota ruled as the
tournament favorite but the Gophers had only six good forwards and
in the latter stages of both games, Coach Johnny Mariucci's charges
were dragging.
Then too, Michigan has drawn the second night for its open-
ing game-which means it will be playing two days in a row. Dur-
ing the regular season Coach Heyliger had a hard time getting his
tired charges up for the second game of series; add this to the
pressure of tournament play and the high altitude and you have
Michigan's opponents tomorrow night, the fancy-skating Engi-
neers from Renssalaer Polytech in Troy, New York are going to be a
tough outfit to beat. Coach Ned Harkness is short on defense, but he
has a great goaler in Bob Fox, and a sensational front line composed of
Frank Chiarelli, Abbie Moore and Angelo Mosca. RPI placed third in
last year's tournament and impressed everyone with its fiery brand
of play.
A SSUMING THAT MICHIGAN does get past Renssalaer, and that
Minnesota beats Boston College as handily as everyone expects it
to, Saturday's final game will be one of the hardest fought in tourna-
ment history. The Gophers are still smarting from the three regular
season lickings they took at the hands of Michigan and they'll take
the ice with a full day's rest, skating three lines to the Wolverine's
But Michigan has advantages too-the Wolverines are used to the
playoff pressure, they're "hot" with a streak of 11 regular season con-
tests without a loss-and the "myth psychology" of Michigan's con-
tinued success in blue chip games will put a good deal of pressure on
the other three entries. The doormen, bellhops and elevator operators
at the Broadmoor will underline this-they maintain that the two
things that are sure to happen every March is that they have to pay
their income tax and that Michigan will come down and win the hock-
ey championship.
Another thing, almost as sure, is that there will be the usual
amount of humor and pathos that surrounds every great athletio
event. Last year there was the case of the doorman who had picked
"15" in the total goal pool for Michigan's first game against Boston
University. In the waning minutes of the contests, it looked as if
he was a sure bet to clean up around $90, as Michigan led 13-2
with the game just about over, with two seconds remaining, Ron
Martinson of the Wolverines swept in past the Boston defense to
get his third goal of the evening and give Michigan a new one
game scoring record for the tournament.
The following day the doorman wouldn't speak to any members
of the Michigan entourage-he was crushed. But that night he was
in the pool again and drew number ten. It seemed an impossible total
for a championship game between two good defensive teams, but Mich-
igan got hot and part way into the third period the score was 6-3 favor
the Wolverines. It almost looked as if the doorman had a chance, be-
fore Mariucci pulled his goalie Jim Mattson.
Out of-a mixup in Michigan zone came Captain Johnny Mat-
chefts of the Wolverines, he stole the puck from, a Minnesota wing
and skated the length of the ice, with only Mayasich of the Gophers
between him and "tenth goal." Metchefts faked Mayasich, scored and
our friend the doorman, richer, wiser and very thankful, was a Michi-
gan fan once again.
THE SADDEST TALE to come out of the Springs last year was that
of Coach Harry Cleverly of Boston University. Not only did Clev-
erly see his team lose twice, 14-2 and 6-1, but he had still further
cause to be "burned up." The Colorado Springs Junior Chamber of

Commerce has established the custom of greeting all of the visiting
teams upon arrival at the airport, giving each of the visitors a ten
gallon hat and then going through a special ritual with the coaches.
They make the visiting mentors bend over and they place a board
across their posteriors, in order to burn the Jaycee's brand on the
board, which is then given to the coach as a memento. The colorful,
typically western ceremony backfired when the luckless Cleverly bent
to get his "brand." Someone dropped the board, Harry lost a pair of
pants and spent the rest of the tournament standing up. At the press
"smoker" the evening of the championship game, Cleverly answered
questions about his double misfortune philosophically, "I coached BU
football teams for over ten years," he sighed "I can take anything in
stride now."

Fast-breaking Phi Delta ThetaI

John Fushman's 11 markers led
the Phi Chi's to a 34- 33 win over

the count when his free throw roll-

Stan Gilliland scored on a long

Mayasith needed only one
more goal in Minnesota's two
game setback in Ann Arbor to
break the national scoring and
goal scoring records. A stiff
Michigan defense, plus remark-
able goaltending from Williard
Ikola kept the two fairly well
bottled up.
However, if Michigan plays the
Gophers again, it will be on Sat-
urday, most likely in the cham-
pionship tilt. Whether it be in the
finals, or in the consolation game,
Minnesota will be playing with a
day's rest while the Maize and
Blue sextet will have played the
night before.
If Michigan does repeat as NCAA
champion for-the fourth year in
a row, it will take a lot of good
hockey playing. The Wolverines
are up against the best of col-
legiate hockey.
