Collegiate hockey champions has
The highly favored Wolverines
fell victim to the biggest surprise
in the seven year history of the
NCAA hockey tournament here
last night as they were stunned
by an inspired RPI sextet, 6-4.

THE MORE than 2600 anti-
Michigan fans were given a real
treat as the fired up Engineers
just wouldn't quit. They fought
back to earn the victory after
blowing a 3-0 lead which they
piled up in the first eight minutes
The victory put RPI in the
championship game tonight
against Minnesota- while Michi-
gan will battle Boston College
in the consolation game this
The Wolverines just couldn't
keep up with the hustling RPI
squad or for that matter with the
officials. Referees Ed Barry of
Boston and Rabbit McVeigh of
Detroit called 10 penalties on the
Maize and Blue and only two on
the Engineers, all coming in the
first two periods.
AT LEAST ONE and sometimes
two Michigan men were in the
penalty box during each of the
first five RPI goals. The sixth
goal came in the final minute of
play while Wolverine goalie Wil-
lard Ikola was off the ice.
Rensselaer's second line was
the big offensive story for the
victors as it beat Wolverine
goalie Willard Ikola four times.
Center Ron Peterkin paced the
attack with three goals and an
Michigan's second line center,
Bill MacFarland kept Vic Heylig-
er's team in contention with
an outstanding offensive display
which resulted in his third hat
trick of the year.

Michigan within one goal of the
Engineers with two minutes to go

defense splitting dash climaxed
by a hard shot past goalie Bob
The Wolverines' first line of
George Chin, Pat Cooney and
Doug Mullen was held in check
all night by the close checking
Eastern club. It wasn't involved
in any scoring.
RPI jumped into an early two
goal lead when defenseman Neil
Buchanan was sent off the ice for
hooking at the three minute
mark of the first period.

Beginning with business prob-

The best way for accomplishing
this is to build more successful
human relations programs in cor-

part of the firm instead of just

Russia, partial neglect of other
nations has occurred but is by
no means intentional.
India in the past has received
economic aid under the Point-Four
Program and from theInterna-

Knappen noted, "now that we
have an economy minded Con-
gress, there exists no immediate
prospect of industrializing unde-
veloped nations on an appropriate
and effective basis."
Moreover, Prof. Knappen claim-
ed that he wouldn't term United
