EAST LANSING-Certain elements of
immaturity were fatal to Michigan's foot-
ball team yesterday, as Michigan State
ran away with a 23-12 victory.
After the game, Michigan's Coach Bo
Schembechler called the performance
"terrible," and put most of the blame for
the team's mistakes on "the inexperience
of the sophomores."
There actually was no one factor which
accounted for the final result. Michigan
State came onto the field with substitutes
sprinkled throughout the lineup. Despite
being hampered by these second stringers
filling in for injured players, the Spar-
tans put out a whale of a performance.
They had worked on a whole new series
of plays and executed them well.
Michigan came out with a very healthy
team. Phil Seymour was playing for the
first time since his injury; Glenn Dough-

om ps


ty was back to full strength. Nonetheless,
the team had poor execution of plays
and made major mistakes galore.
Doughty, the Wolverine's top yard
gainer with 89 yards, also proved himself
the team's top mistake maker. His first
big goof came on the first series of plays.
The Wolverines took the opening kickoff
and moved the ball to the Spartan 32.
Doughty then grabbed a pitchout to
sweep the right end; that is he almost
grabbed the pitchout. He bobbled the ball,
dropped it, and finally recovered the pig-
skin 11 yards back.
There's nothing like an eleven yard
fumble to kill a drive. Three plays later,
Mark Werner punted and pinned the
Spartans on their two yard line; that is
he almost pinned them.
On Michigan State's first play from
scrimmage, quarterback Bill Triplett ran
around left end on a naked reverse where
the team goes one way and the quarter-
back the other. The Wolverine defense

23 -12
fell for it lock, stock, and barrel going
with the rest of the Spartans while
Triplett dashed to the 30.
Michigan State must have liked what
it saw since two plays later they ran the
same play. The Wolverines couldn't have
minded too much as they again watched
him scamper away. This time the play
carried him to Michigan's 28 yard line.
Michigan's defense finally realized it
was playing football and held the Spar-
tans, who missed a field goal from the 32.
Down the rug stomped the Wolverines
offense once again, seemingly intent on
getting the ball into the endzone. They
made it to the 25 before Doughty blew it
again. This time he didn't even have to
touch the ball. Moorhead went back to
pass, defensive end Rich Saul charged,
Doughty cleanly missed the block, and
Saul mashed Moorhead on the 38 yard
line. End Michigan's second drive with
Werner punting into the endzone.
After an exchange of punts, Michigan

State gave the Wolverines their big
chance when Don Highsmith fumbled on
his own 30. The Maize and Blue took
quick advantage of this to stall at the
12 yard line and settle for a three-
The Spartans, however, had lost their
benevolence. Taking Michigan's kickoff,
they drove 80 yards in 12 plays, with
Highsmith driving in from the two for
the touchdown.
Where State had decided to push, Mich-
igan decided to help them along. Four
plays after Michigan State's kickoff,
Moorhead fumbled the hike and Duffy's
boys took over at Michigan's 32 yard
line. After five plays, Triplett swept
around right end from the 10 to hit pay-
Doughty must have figured that the
Spartan's must have needed even more
help. He caught the ensuing kickoff on
the one and stepped back into the end-

Nixon to

withdrawal CSJ







Nixon has ordered the Penta-
gon to work out a dramatic
speed-up of U.S. troop w i t h-
drawals from Vietnam, it was
reported in a copyrighted
story in the Long Island news-
paper Newsday.

The story, reprinted here in
yesterday's Detroit F r e e
Press, says reliable informants
have indicated that plans call
for pulling out up to 300,000
men during 1970, at the rate
of over 20,000 per month.
Nixon will reportedly announce

A Tenant's Union negotiating
committee met with McKinley As-
sociates manager Ton Weisner
yesterday in their first prelimi-
nary negotiating session.
Dale Berry, of the Tenants Un-
ion, refused to comment on what
transpired at the meeting. Berry
simply acknowledged that a meet-
ing did take place, and indicated
there would be others,
Apparently, McKinley Assoc-
iates have not yet recognized the
Tenant's Union as a legitimate
bargaining agent. The Union has
been seeking such recognition as
a fundamwntal demand since the
beginning of the rent strike.
Weisner also declined to com-
ment on the meeting "I h a v e
nothing significant to say at this
point." Weisner must report to

his intentions in a scheduled
television speech to the nation
Nov. 3.
The Associated Press lent con-
firmation to the Newsday story
last night in a report Washington
budget officials had advised the
Armed Forces that American mili-
tary strength will be reduced by,
up to 500.000 men across the board
by mid-1971.
A large portion of this reduc-
tions should stem from the scaling
down of U.S. involvement in Viet-
nam, the AP said.
The plan reflects a shift of in-
fluence in the administration
from the military to those civilian
leaders who have been arguing
that domestic. troubles are too
near the disaster point to permit
the much more gradual "Vietnam-}
ization" of the war that the gen-
orals wanted.
Nixon's Nov. 3 speech will come
at the end of a week of hearings
before the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee in which Defense
Secretary Melvin Laird is supposed
to testify.
ht is expected that Laird will say
that "Vietnamization" has made
rapid progress. Secretary of State
William Rogers is also expected to
tell that committee the rate of
North Vietnamese infiltration and
a battlfield lull are political sig-
nals from Uanoi.
Pentagon sources reportedly
consider these factors merely a
shift of enemy battle tactics, but
Nixon's advisers plan to announce
them anyway. In this way Nixon's
Nov. 3 announcement of troop
withdrawals will not appear to be
a capitulation to pressure in
American streets.
The plan for increased with-
drawls was begun before the Oct.
15 Moratorium Day, but after the
scope and broad spectrum of sup-
port for the demonstrations had
become forseeable.
According to Newsday, the Nixon
withdrawal plan does not foresee
how the war will be' completely
ended, and do-s not make plans
for disposing of American bases
and investments in Vietnam.

CSJ fined SDS $25 and Rotkin $2 for violating a

A report recommending com-
plete severance of all financial ties
between the University and ROTC,
and elimination of all credit and
departmental standing for the
program will be the only topic of
business at tomorrow's Senate As-
sembly meeting.
The Assembly may take final
action on the report, which was
prepared by its Academic Affairs
Committee. If adopted, the report
will be sent to the Regents who

will have to make the final deci-
sion, to alter the current status of;
ROTC programs.
The report asks that a commit-
tee be established to evaluate all
ROTC personel and course offer-
ings, and to mediate between
ROTC and students who have dis-
putes with the program.
The report specifically recom-
mends ROTC become completely
extracurricular if the Department

of Defense cannot accept the rec-
ommendations of the report.
Currently the University is con-
tributing free classroom space as
well as supplies and services. The
total worth of these contributions
is more than $350,000 per year. If
the report is adopted, the Defense
Department would have to provide
the money.
A minority report also sent to
the Assembly for consideration to-
morrow asks the University to
sever its ROTC contract complete-
ly and recommends that the Uni-
versity "seek to pursuade other I
universities to do likewise."
While only one member of the
committee, Prof. Eugene Litwak,
signed the minority report, three
members of the committee en-
dorsed a provision calling for the
elimination of those ROTC courses'
hich teach methods of "elimina-
tion of human life."
Their resolution is in accordance
with the Elidem'field Report adopt-
ed by the Assembly last year,
which states that research aimed
at killing should not be accepted
by the University.
Assembly c h a i rin a n Joseph
Payne last night called the major-
ity report "reasonable." He said
he believes the report is one that
should be acceptable to all seg-"
ments of the University com-
munity, but warned that there
were a number of controversial
factors that mivht affect the out-
com of the report.

ed the educational value of the
event with leafletting and discus-!
- No weapons were used and
nobody was injured;

Once a lawyere has been retain-
ed, the organizers intend to begin
circulating petitions among all
teaching fellows seeking signatures
of support for unionization.
When the signatures of a cer-
tain percentage of the fellow have
been obtained, the State Labor
Mediation Board is required to
hold bargaining elections to of-
ficially designate the structure anci
affiliation of the union.

19'70 - the year to hang loose?
It may be just that if the bra-

across the country.

say they are "more free, in o r e
natural" without a bra.
Some girls try to hide their
braless state with clothes that
obscure the fact. "I only do it
when no one can tell -- I'd be
embarassed if I thought any-
one knew,' says one senior.
For many, no-braing-it is a
seasonal affair - but the sea-

Perhaps a bit tongue-in-cheek,
one girl declares, "It's my own

from my straight-laced in i d d I e

flippant the explanation, rebel-

behind bralessness.

Some bra manufacturers have

light garments designed to give
the look and feel of bralessness.
But the braless militants c o n-
