of eligibility remaining.
Renfrew Determined
Coach Al Renfrew, in his fifth
year at Tech, is a 1949 graduate
of Michigan and was an All-Am-
erican in his college days. After
absorbing two humiliating defeats
at the hands of the Wolverines last
weekend, Renfrew brings his band
of powerful Huskies to town with
but one thought-revenge.
Only one senior dots the roster
of the young Tech squad, who
will be led by what is rated the
best brother combination in U. S.
amateur hockey today, Bob and
Jack McMafus.
Bob, the goalie, was All-WIHL
last year, and is regarded as the
backbone of the team, while Jack,
a right- wing, is currently the
third-leading scorer in the League.
Despite their scoring drought
last weekend, the Huskies still
sport an envious 5.7 goals per
game offensive average. Besides
McManus, three other Tech play-
ers rank in the top 10 of League
scoring.
Potent Scoring Attack
Tom Kennedy, sixth in league
scoring, tops the WIHL in assists
with 27 to his credit. Pete Aubry,
with 43 points, ranks fourth, while

les' high-scoring wings, is ninth
with 38 points.
Although McManus is third at
present in total points, he could
end up as League champ.
Current leader John Andrews of
Colorado has now finished the sea-
son with 52 points, while McManus,
with 50, has a chance to boost his
total in this weekend's series.

CAPTAIN BILL MacFARLAND, making his last home appearance,
has compiled an amazing scoring record in his three years. He has
accounted for 73 goals and 65 assists during his brilliant hockey
career, including 18 goals and 25 assists this season.

NEW 'PROSPECT':
Who's Who in Hockey

s 0- *

One of Michigan's all-time great
hockey players will be playing in
his last home series this weekend.
Bill MacFarland, captain of the
last two Wolverine sextets, will
complete his career as a collegiate
star except for the NCAA playoffs
next week, when Michigan tangles
with Michigan Tech in the battle
for the WIHL's crown.
MacFarland, who alternates at
center and wing, has compiled one
of the finest scoring records in
Michigan's history. In his three
years he has scored a total of 138
points, and this season, he is fifth
in WIHL play with 43 points.
The Detroit Red Wings have
expressed an interest in MacFar-
land after he finishes school, but

TORONTO (R) - Abi Hoffman
was the roughest, toughest de-
fenseman in Toronto's Little
Hockey League, a league for boys
under 10.
. Yesterday officials pickedgthe
team for the leagud all-star game
on March 31. Abi, of course, was
on it.
Following usual procedure, the
officials began examining birth
certificates of the all-stars. Then
they blinked-and blushed.
Besides being the roughest,
toughest defenseman for four
months in the Little Hockey
League, Abi, it was discovered, was
also a 9-year-old girl. She liked
hockey better than dolls.
"Nobody on the team knew Abi

was a girl," said team manager Al
Grissi.
The girl's father, Samuel Hoff-
man, explained the masquerade.
"When the league enrollment
took place she asked me to take
her. There were 400 boys there.
"While I was inquiring about a
girls' team, Abi wandered off in
the crowd and handed in her birth
certificate without telling me. A
few days later we received a call
from the league saying Abi could
play.
"So I let her go ahead. I ac-
companied her to every'game. She
dressed at- home and put on her
skates at the rink. She wore a
sweater and had her hair cropped
real close."
League officials didn't have the
heart to kick Abi-whose real
name is Abigail-out. So they told
her she could play. And they said
next year she can have a separate
dressing room-all to herself.
