Broadmoor Trip Highlighted
By 'Pressure, Inspired Play

By DAVE GREYv
When the pressure is on, a true
champion will respond and fight
back.
Michigan's hc'key team had to
do just that this past weekend at
Colorado Springs in battling to
two tension-packed wins and its
sixth NCAA championship in nine
years.
It will be a long time before the
colorful Broadmoor Ice Palace
will see two more dramatic games
in successive nights.

The narrowness of the Broad-
moor ice slowed the Wolverine at-
tack. St. Lawrence, meanwhile,
was forechecking hard, keeping
the Michigan offense off balance
and from getting quickly out of its
defensive zone.
Youthful Coach Menard, whoa
became a tournament favorite with
his quiet sincere manner, com-
mented that night about his heart-
broken players, "We have nothing
to be ashamedi of, I guess. We did
our best. It was a real tough one

tain Bill MacFarland, playing his
last game in a Maize and Blue
uniform, and wing Jerry Karpinka
were hardest hit besides Howes.
It also will be a good while before
a more exciting and picturesque
tournament will be held. The few
loyal Michigan rooters, some in
the area and others who had
traveled the many miles from Ann
Arbor, will long remember NCAA-
1956.

Olympic Figure Skating Stars
Provide Thrills, Entertainment

By LYNN TOWLE
Beneath the dazzling crown of a
champion is a pretty normal guy.
In the spotlight of Michigan's
Coliseum Olympic figure skating
champion, Hayes Allen Jenkins ef-
fortlessly glides over the ice before
a crowd surpassed only by the
Michigan-Tech series.
Jenkins, under the red and blue
lights of the rink, gives the cheer-
ing throng a spectacle that may
never again be equalled.
Only Two Hours Sleep
Performing on only two hours of
sleep after winning the United
States Skating Crown the previous
night in Philadelphia, Jenkins
flashes across the ice brilliantly.
Suddenly the crowd gasps as the
world's greatest figure skater
slips in the middle of a spin and
falls before their very eyes.
Watching from the sidelines in
his ten gallon hat, football coach
Bennie Oosterbaan's jaw drops as
the champion who had thrilled
crowds all over Europe, gracefully
whirls to his feet; and without a
moment's pause continues his

The brothers have journeyed
from Cortina, Italy, to Ann Arbor
and are enroute to Colorado. Most
of the time the only place they
see is the inside of ice rinks.
Now that the skating season is
completed, the brothers must re-
turn to the routine of classes at
Colorado College. Neither-one had
much to say about the CC hockey
team.
"I thought Colorado was doing
all right when we left, but some-
thing must have happened in the
ten weeks we were away," ex-
claims Dave.

somewhat hopeful underdogs -
Tech and St. Lawrence - feel at
home.
'Shake, Rattle and Roll'
The Huskies, with a "Shake,
Rattle and Roll" band of 50 strong,
led an enthusiastic group of 250
rooters from Houghton, complete
with bells, yellow pom-poms,
sirens, waving pennants and "ten-
gallon" hats.
Tech applied the pressure Thurs-
day night in the first round by
routing, although unimpressively,
a completely outmatched Boston
College team, 10-4.
The Huskies, under Coach Al
Renfrew, then sat back, rested and
played for the psychological edge
over Michigan.
Overconfident, Off Guard

Michigan hindered itself by the old
problem of too many penalties.

fighting for the puck every minute

Both teams played some of their
best hockey with alert passing,
stickwork, and hard body check-

needed to pull the game out of the
fire.

The whole friendly setting off

The Broadmoor Hotel and sur-
