CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- In a dull, boring game, almost as
flat and featureless as the central Illinois landscape, the
Michigan Wolverines massacred the Fighting Illini 57-0.
It was Michigan's first whitewash of the season and marked the
worst drubbing either school has received in this long and fabled
rivalry that dates to 1898. The 57 points were more than either school
had previously tallied against the other.
The win, coupled with Indiana's loss to Iowa, paved the way for
Michigan to clinch a bid to the Rose Bowl. Only Ohio State, ineligible
for the trip, has a better record than the Wolverines and only Purdue
at 4-1 equals Michigan.
A Purdue loss to Ohio State next week with a Michigan victory
over Iowa would put the Wolverines one game it front of the Boiler-
makers with only one game to go. If both finish the year in identical
records Michigan would likely get the nod as they have been the
longest away from California on New Year's Day.
Michigan Coach Bo Schembechler shook his head after the game
and quietly commented, "I was sick."
Schembechler, who was an assistant at Northwestern in 1957
when the Wildcats compiled a winless record, commented, "I know
how Jim Valek feels."
But feelings score few points as the Wolverines found themselves
losing control of the game, "We didn't play well," said Schembechler,
"The defense was not sharp in the first half and neither was the

Anti-war leaders accuse U.S.
of scare tactics on peace march

On the eve of a key student
referendum on control of tui-
tion revenues, the University
administration has tentatively
settled on a modified plan for
intramural construction which
involves funding by a student
fee increase.
Under the plan, a recurring tui-
tion increase of at least $7 per,
student per term would be assessed
to pay for a new $5 million intra-
mural facility on Forest Ave.
Plans for a separate intramural
building on North Campus would
be temporarily dropped, however.
The recurring fee assessment for
the Central Campus structure
would run for about 11 years.
The tentative plan was outlined
in a letter from Vice President for
Academic Affairs Allan Smith to
Athletic Director Don Canham last
month. Canham is chairman of
the Advisory Committee on Recre-
ation, Intramurals and Club
Sports that initiated action of the
intramural facilities question last
At that time, the advisory com-
mittee's recommendation called
for the construction of two new
multi-million dollar buildings -
one on Central Campus and one
on North Campus - which would
be funded through a recurring
tuition increase of up to $15 per
student par term.
Both the advisory committee
proposal and the position outlin-
ed by Smith would allow the tui-
tion increase to be deferred until
the facilities open.
Smith's letter also indicated that
the Development Council of the
Office of University Relations
would be asked to explore the pos-
sibility of obtaining private sup-
port for the buildings.
In an interview yesterday, Smith
said he would welcome student
opinion on the intramural ques-

jamin Spock and other anti-war
leaders yesterday accused the
Nixon administration of trying to
scare participants away from this
week's anti-tar demonstration by
predicting violence.
"It's perfectly clear that the talk
of violence is all coming from the
administration," said Spock. "The
government is trying in every way
to intimidate people who are com-
ing to protest against the war.
President Nixon is desperately
trying to make it appear that the
American people are behind him
when, in fact, they are not."
Mrs. Martin Luther King Jr.,

Leaders predict massive turnout

A meeting of New Mobe leaders

Washington to discuss the prob-
lems of the route for the mass

are expected to resume tomorrow

New Mobe also reached final
