HOUGHTON - A blazing fin-
ish to a rather sloppy game high-
lighted a 3-1 victory for Michigan
over Michigan Tech at Dee Sta-
dium last night.
These same two teams will meet
in the last game of the season to-
night at 8 p.m.
In recent years, a Michigan-
Michigan Tech game would deter-
mine the final WIHL standings,
but last night's contest was just
a mere routine of finishing up the
Only 1,334 fans, the lowest at-
tendance of the year at Dee Sta-
dium, showed up to watch the
80th meeting of the two teams.
The game was sloppy and unin-
teresting from the start, but ac-
tion in the last five minutes of
play more than made up for it.
Tech Gets Opportunity
With Michigan ahead, 2-0, four
penalties against the Wolverines
in six minutes gave Tech the op-
portunity to score its one goal of
the game in the third period.
Cliff Wylie slapped a loose
puck; in 'front of the Michigan
cage past Ross Childs to narrow
the margin, 2-1, and break Childs'
Michigan only had three play-
ers on the ice for most of the
closing minutes of the game. Tech
came within an inch several times
of tying it up.
Tech Pulls Goalie
With exactly one minute re-
maining, and both teams at full
strength, Tech coach, John Mac-
Inness pulled his goalie in an ef-
fort to score the equalizer.
Michigan; as the tension mount-
ed, pressed the six Tech skaters
looking for a breakthrough.
It came at 19:49. Don MacIn-
tosh, playing in his next-to-last
game as a Wolverine, stole the
puck, skated in unmolested on the
open cage, and calaly tapped in
Michigan Gets Lead
Michigan got off to a 1-0 lead
early in the first period. Bob
White, playing his first game
since being injured two weeks
ago, took a pass from MacIntosh
deep in his own zone.
The strong sophomore skated
around the Tech defense and
flipped the disk past Husky goalie,
Wolverines Dominate Play
The Wolverines dominated play
for the remainder of the period
but could not score.
Play became ragged throughout
the, second period. The lack of
bench strength on both teams be-
gan to show, and it looked for a
while as though White's goal
would stand up for the remainder
of the game.
Neil MacDonald, who, w
Switzer and Mac~intosh, is
ing in his final collegiate
series, put Michigan ahem

Michigan's Wolverines will try'
to salvage what they can in the
Big Ten basketball race when they
meet Iowa at Yost Fieldhouse to-
night in the season's finale, start-
ing at 8 p.m.
The game carries no importance
as far as the Conference cham-
pionship goes. Michigan State
clashes with Indiana at East
Lansing for the championship and
the right to represent the Big Ten
in the NCAA championship tour-
other hand can gain a fourth-'
place tie with Ohio State if they
whip the Wolverines.
Iowa will be trying to avenge an
earlier loss to Michigan. The Wol-
verines whipped the Hawkeyes 73-
65 at Iowa City in the opening
game of the Big Ten season last
Wordlaw Paces Hawkeyes
The young Iowa squad started
out slowly, but has' come to life
in recent games. Leading the
squad has been Clarence Wordlaw,

excerpts from veteran reviewer Mack Woodruff's column in the Ann I
Arbor News: I
"The Ann Arbor Civic Theater players opened their final production I
of the current season lost night at Lydia Me delssohn Theater. The I
announced intention of the group was to close the season on 'a I
suitably light and impudent note.' They succeeded admirably. I

out of the play's nitwit characters and vacuous pingpong banter' l
than Miss Green had any proper right to expect.
The players attacked ... with ...concerted enthusiasm and whole-
hearted, tongue-in-cheek good humor ...t . I
Phyllis Wright (as Jessica, the heroine) is excellent. She manages I
to make Jessica seem more sensitive than sick, and that is no mean I
accomplishment. Robert Logan as the husband and Russell Aiuto I
