Techleers Trounce Boston College,
'M' To Meet St. Lawrence Tonight

By PETE KASS and
BRUCE BENNENT
Sigma Chi "A", Strauss House
"A", Seldom Seen Kids, Phi Alpha
Kappa, Phi Delta Theta "B" an-
nexed their respective IM basket-
ball titles last night during the
25th annual Open House at the
Sports building.
Gomberg "B" squad was the only
repeater as five new champions
swept into power.
A spirited throng looked on as
Sigma Chi dethroned Phi Kappa
Sigma in the social fraternity "A"
division with a 49-22 victory. The
new champions held a shaky 17-12
halftime bulge, but with the re-
bounding of Tom Maentz came on
to assume a commanding lead.
Maentz netted 14 points and Mary
Nyren bucketed 15 to pace the
attack.
Alert Defense
The losers utilized an alert de-
fense to hold Sigma Chi in check
for the first half. Ernie Myers
dropped in nine to lead the Phi
Kappa Sigma scoring.
Strauss trailed by two points at
the half but limited loser Williams
to only one point in the third
period to cop the Residence Halls
"A" crown by a 38-27 count. Play-
ing before the noisiest crowd of
the evening, the score was kept at
a minimum in the first half be-
cause of the inaccurate shooting of
both squads.
Trailing 12-10 at halftime, the
winners clamped down on Willi-
ams at the start of the second
half while stepping their own point
production to safely put away the
title and reward their large con-
tingent of fans. Bill Heise and Nick

COLORADO SPRINGS-A quiet-
ly confident Michigan hockey team
heads into its first round of the
NCAA Playoffs against St. Law-
rence here tonight.

WIHL's Tech gains by the easy'

Radio Coverage on AM, FM
Two local radio stations make history this weekend with
complete live coverage of Michigan's NCAA hockey playoff
games at Colorado Springs.
For the first time in Michigan's nine straight appearances
in the tournament, Ann Arbor stations WHRV (AM) and
WUOM (FM) will carry University sports announcer Bill Ste-
gath's play-by-play description of the contests direct from
the Broadmoor Ice Palace.
Tonight's broadcast of the Wolverines' clash with St.
Lawrence will begin at 10:15.

arb philosophized yesterday, "The
pre-tournament draw of Michi-
gan has had a depressing effect on
our boys."
Defense Could Be Difference
Defense could be the big differ-
ence. Michigan's back line has
given up the average of only two
goals per game all season.
St. Lawrence has been denied its
three top defensemen via an NCAA
ruling barring four-year players.
Since arriving here Wednesday,
Michigan's coach Vic Heyliger has
given his team two light workouts.

Mitia led Strauss with eight each
while John Burkhart tallied 11
points for the losers.
Skillful Shooting
Phi Alpha Kappa displayed skill-
ful shooting and ball-handling
finesse in dethroning Nu Sigma Nu
39-28 in the professional Frater-
nity championships. After a nip
and tuck first quarter,, Phi Alpha
Kappa took a 17-10 lead by half-
time behind the shooting of Ron
Bos.
Then with Dick Nieusma pacing
the attack in the second half the
winners moved to their first crown
since the 1941-42 campaign.
Coming from behind with a fast-
breaking attack in the second half
the Seldom Seen Kids dumped the
Globetrotters 51-42 in the Inde-
pendent division.
The trotters, sparked by the tor-
rid shooting of Gordie Morrow,
held a 25-24 advantage at the
respite. 'However, the well-bal-
anced offense of the Kids proved
to be too much as they pulled
steadily away to win. Morrow was
the game's high scorer with 22
points, while Bob Sharland gar-
nered 1 4and Jim Clark 12 for the
winners.
Sigma Chi Upset
Phi Delta Theta upset defending
titlist Sigma Chi 35-24 to end the
loser's string of championships at
five straight. Frank Moore and
Scotty Crisler controlled the boards
as the Phi Delts moved quickly to
an eight point margin which they
increased during the remainder of
the contest.
Accuracy from the free throw
line enabled the Phi Delts to sus-
tain their lead in a steadily played
game. Despite the closeness of the
score, the losers were never able to
threaten seriously. Moore hit 14
points to top the Phi Delts while
John Madigan hooped eight for
Sigma Chi.
Gomberg Had Easy Time
Gomberg had a relatively easy
time in disposing of Reeves 67-37
to repeat as Residence Halls "B"
title holder. Gomberg spurted mid-
way in the first half to remove
all doubt about the outcome and
gradually increased its lead to 34
points late in the game. Reeves
was unable to cope with the
smooth Big Red offense and
couldn't match the winner's fire-
power.

Michigan Tracksters Head for Ohio, Canada
As Squad Vies for Honors in Three Meets

By DICK CRAMER
Michigan's Big Ten champion'
track team nears the end of its
indoor season this weekend with
a flurry of activities that sends
members to three meets in two
countries.
Biggest attraction of the week-
end will be tonight's Knights of
Columbus Games at Cleveland.
Seven Big Ten titleholders join
such expected participants as the
Rev. Bob Richards, Harrison Dill-
ard and the controversial Wes
Santee in the annual charity af-
fair.
Eeles Landstrom and Mark Booth
are the Wolverines' championship
contributions to the Cleveland
meet.
Opposition for Landstrom
Landstrom, whose latest pole-
vault effort was 14'4" last week
in the Milwaukee games, will more
than likely have the formidable
opposition of the great Richards.
Richards' 15'-plus vaults are usu-
ally the scourge of ambitious colle-
gians in the various invitational
meets of the indoor season.
Besides Landstrom and high-
jumper Booth, Michigan will be
representedhat Cleveland by Laird
Sloan in the 600 yard 'run and
by the tWo-mile relay team of Pete
Gray, Captain Ron Wallingford,
Geert Keilstrup and Robin Varian.

Tomorrow two other contingents

ents in Hamilton, Ontario and
Denison University in Ohio.
'M' Freshmen Invade Canada
Two lettermen and one alumnus
lead a freshman-dominated aggre-
gation to Hamilton's International
Indoor Track Meet, billed as "Can-
ada's greatest winter meet."
Graduate student John Moule,
holder of 1955's Big Ten mile
crown, will run his usual distance
event while Don Matheson and
George Gluppe of the present
Varsity will run in the 600 and
300 yard races, respectively.
Calling
the Gang
to

Among Michigan's freshman in
the Canadian meet are Ron Book
and Don Cole in the 300 and Paul
Kelly and Cam Gray in the 1000.
Impressive Group
Assistant Coach Elmer Swanson
takes an impressive four-man
group to tomorrow afternoon and
evening's Denison Relays.
Conference champion Dave Owen
leads a two-man Wolverine entry
in the shot put event. Owen, who
consistently puts the shot over
50 feet, is joined by teammate
George Scott.
Brendan O'Reilly, holder of the
Varsity Yost Field House high
jump record, and Tom Hendricks,
who finished well in the Big Ten's
low hurdles and broad jump will
also be on hand at Denison in
their specialties.

An enthusiastic body of 3001
rooters from Houghton, plus the
colorful band, cheered wildly over
every good play the Engineers
executed.
Boston College was far from
sharp. The Eagles lacked the early
drive to overcome a first period
Tech lead of 4-0.
The Huskies led 6-2 at the end
of the second stanza.
Tech was the more alert unit of
the two, but both squads lacked
polished passing.

goals-a hat trick plus one.
Six other Engineers divided the
other scoring.
Reported first to have suffered
a broken collarbone in practice
Wednesday, Tech's high-scoring
right wing Jack McManus actual-
ly had a painful shoulder separa-
tiori. He saw action for only two
minutes last night.
Michigan Uncertain
Heavily favored Michigan mean-
while, has remained quiet and even
a bit uncertain about tonight's
opening game against St. Law-
rence.
Fans here consider the defend-'
ing champions as "the Yankees of
collegiate hockey."
