Purdu e's



Associate Sports Editor
Poor Johnny Heismann, he's
got to reconsider who he's going
to give his trophy to at the end
of the season. Because just as
Purdue's Golden Girl shone less
as the rain went on, so did some
of the luster fall off Mike Phipps'
golden arm as Michigan stifled
the potent Boilermaker offense
and scored a big 31-20 victory
Phipps certainly didn't play
poorly as he hit 22 of 44 passes
for 250 yards and two touch-
downs, but he couldn't create
the miracles that he had in
Purdue's first three victories.
particularly last week's stun-
ning 36-35 triumph over Stan-
ford. Instead, the great quarter-
back had four of his passes pick-
ed off by Michigan defenders.
three of them being stolen by
Marty Huff. All four intercep-
tions also caine in Purdue terri-
tory and helped to constantly

keep pressure on the Boiler-
maker defense.
In addition to the intercep-
tions, Purdue also coughed up
the football three times on fum-
bles, one by Phipps.
While the mistakes kept the
Boilermakers in trouble, though,
the Wolverines couldn't capital-
ize on them until the third quar -
ter when Michigan finally blew
the game open.
The maize and blue victory
drive began with only four min-
utes gone in the second half and
the score knotted 14-14 when on
a third down play Phipps h..ul-
ed off from his 45 yard line and
tried to hit flanker Stan Brown
on a deep post pattern. All-
American safety Tom Curtis
timed the throw perfectly and
stepped in front of Brown to
make a leaping interception.
Curtis raced to the Purdue 45
before being hit and the offense
took the field in excellent posi-
Quarterback Don Moorhead

quickly directed Michigan to the
28 but then the attack stalled hs
two passes intended for John
Gabler fell incomplete. On
fourth down with seven yards
needed for the first down, Bo
Schembechler took the gamble
and went for it. Jim Mandich
responded by making a leaping
catch of a pass and then fight-
ing off a defender to reach the
12-yard line. Three plays later
Tim Killian booted a 28-yard
field goal to put Michigan into
the lead for good.
No one was breathing easily
despite the lead but tremoring
hearts gained a measure of re-
lief in just one minute. Phipps
fumbled the snap on the second
play from scrimmage after
Michigan kicked off and soph-
ornore defensive end Butch Car-
penter pounced on the loose ball.
From there it took the of-
fense only three plays wvith
Moorhead sneaking into the
end zone after Bill Taylor had
burst 24 yards to the one. All

of a sudden it was 24-14 and
Phipps didn't have any miracles
left to use.
Most Michigan people hadn't
felt too secure going into the
second half, with the exception
of Schembechler. "I still felt
good at the half," he comment-
ed in the locker room. "Phipps
wasn't killing us and I felt that
we could move."
Schembechler's o p t i m i s m
wasn't shared by the 80,411
fans because Phipps had come
alive late in the second quarter
to bring Purdue to a half-time
tie after trailing 14-0. It cer-
tainly looked like the big senior
was beginning to kill Michigan
as he hit for 12 of his comple-
tions in the last ten minutes of
the half while running for one
score and passing to tight end
Ashley Bell for a second with
only 19 seconds left.
Phipps' performance brought
eerie memories to fans of his
feats against Stanford and the
situation seemed to be forebod-

ing. lie had begun to resemble
his reputation of being unstop-
pable. But a fact had been over-
1 o o k e d that. Schembechler
pointed out after the game. "You
also have to compare the times
he handed over the football to
the gains he made," he said in
reference to Phipps' accomplish-
Schembechler had a point, as
Huff had intercepted a pass in
the first quarter and Carpenter
recovered a fumble in the sec-
ond. The Wolverines didn't con-
vert these Boilermaker mistakes
into points but the rash of Pur-
due errors made it inevitable
that some would soon backfire
and they did in the third quar-
Until the 10 point burst in
the second half Michigan had
made its living through long
drives. The Wolverines quickly
drove '72 yards in eight plays
after the opening kick-off, with
the key plays being passes to

Presidents cite
costs of war
on the young
From Wire Service Reports
A list of 59 presidents of col-
leges and universities acrss
the country yesterday signed
a petition urging President
Nixon to end the war in Viet-
nam by stepping up t r o o p
Not included in the list,
however, w e r e University
President Robben Fleming or
any other Big Ten university
"I haven't heard anything about
it," Fleming said last night. Flen-
ing commented that often peti-
tions such as this one start in
the East and do not reach mid-
western campuses.
The petition was signed by the
presidents of three ivy league uni-
versities - Columbia, Cornell, and
the University of Pennsylvania-
as well as several eastern women's
Midwestern college presidents
who signed the statement included
those of Oberlin and Antioch col-
leges in Ohio.
"We urge the President and the
Congress for a stepped up time-
table for the withdrawal of troops
from Vietnam. We believe this to
be in the country's best interest,"
the statement read.
The presidents wvho signted the
petition stressed that "we speak as
individuals," and that "our uni-
versities take no position on the

munities where each man speaks
The cots of the war, the state-
mrent contintued, "are not in men
and materials alone. The costs too
are on the effects of the war on
young people and their hopes and
The presidents held that "the
mAjority of our students want to
believe in a just, honest, and sen-
sitive America.
"Our military engagement is a
denial of so much that is best in
our society. More and more we see
the war deflecting energies and re-
sources from urgent business on
our own doorstep.
"An end to the war will not solve
the problems onl or off campus."
The petition stated that the war's
end, however, would permit Amer-
icans to "work more effectively in
support of more peaceful priori-
Far from being depressed about

hear proposal

The Regents will meet with student and faculty represent-
atives during their regular Thursday session to discuss a new
proposal for a student-faculty controlled bookstore.
The meeting was set up at a two-hour discussion of the
proposal yesterday among President Robben Fleming, Vice
President for State Relations and Planning Arthur Ross,
members of the Senate Advisory Committee on University
Affairs (SACUA), the Bookstore Coordinating Committee,
Student Government Council and representatives of the
governing bodies of various schools and colleges.
No objection was raised at the meeting to student control
of the store, and no major substantive disagreements were
aired on other sections of the draft. Most of the discussion
centered around resolving mechanical differences.
Fleming will announce tomorrow the specific time and place
of the Thursday meeting. The meeting will probably come in the
afternoon, after the Regents complete their scheduled work in the
Although the Regents are not expected to vote on the proposal
during Thursday's discussion, it is likely they will make a decision
at their second meeting Friday.
The discussion will probably resemble the frank, informal talks
on the bookstore issue on Sept. 18 between the Regents and SGC,
which preceded the regental decision the next day to establish an
administration-controllĀ°d University bookstore.
Fleming. referring to SGC's call for a rally and march to Friday's
Regents meeting, warned against massing students to attend Thurs-
day's discussion. "A discussion with 800 students around a table will
not accomplish a thing," he insisted.
He added, "If there's another march on the Regents, this subject
is absolutely dead. What you're likely to see is adjournment of the
After the meeting, SGC President Marty McLaughlin said the
Friday march was still planned as scheduled and added he favors it.
SGC will meet at 6:30 tonight to consider revision and clarifica-
tion of the proposal-specffically on sections relating to merging the
bookstore with the SGC discount store, assuming financial respon-
sibility and conducting a referendum.
After SGC has, presumably, revised the draft, the ad hoc com-
mittee of faculty members and students which drew up the proposal
will give it' a final going over before presentation to the Regents
The draft calls for a six student-three faculty member board
to control the bookstore. One non-voting administrator would sit on
the board.
The Regents stipulated in September that the store would be
run by Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Wilbur Pierpont
with students and faculty members serving in an advisory capacity.'
Other provisions of tie proposal-released officially yesterday--
-The bookstore would operate on a break-even basis with first
year savings on textbooks not expected to exceed 5 per cent. This in-

The issue of civilian control of

Organizing and some counter-
organizing is continuing at the
University as the Oct. 15 Vietnam
war moratorium draws closer.
In the Residential College a
petition signed by 75 to 85 stu-
dents has been presented to RC
Dean James Robertson requesting
a student referendum be held on
the decision of the college's Rep-


L'esentative Assembly to cancel RC
classes on Oct. 15.
Robertson said last night that
a comnunity meeting would have
to be held befoie the referendum
so that both sides of the issue
could be presented. The results of
the referendum would be present-
ed to the assembly but they would
not be binding on that body.
However, several RC students
said that they did not think the
organizer of the petition. James

present the petition to the assem-

it would force the assembly to
