After a year of impatient waiting, Michigan gets
its chance this afternoon to untrack the Ohio State
express which seeks to make the Wolverines a record
18th consecutive Big Ten victim. Kickoff time for
the Michigan Stadium battle, which will be witnessed
by 103,000 screaming partisans and a regional tele-
vion audience, has been moved up to 1:15 because of
the early onset of darkness.
The Rose Bowl bid will be decided officially by
the Big Ten athletic directors shortly after today's
game. After reaching their individual decisions as to
which team would best represent the Big Ten, the
athletic directors will phone in their nomination to
Commissioner Bill Reed in Chicago.
Despite Ohio State's ineligibility for the bid, the
incentives are stronger than usual for both teams in
this 66th renewal of the conference's most bitter feud.
Besides the satisfaction of beating its arch-rival, Ohio
State can become only the fifth team to ever win con-
secutive national championships and can extend its
winning streak to 23 games.
Michigan, however, has burning memories of last
year's 50-14 humiliation at Columbus for inspiration.
As if that weren't enough, the Wolverines can grab
a share of the Big Ten championship to go with their
Rose Bowl trip if they can subdue the Buckeyes.
As phrased succinctly by Michigan Coach Bo
Schembechler, "Everything is available in this game,
the title, Rose Bowl, and a national ranking. It's for
all the marbles, and we're going into the game like
we can win it."
The primary difference between this year's and
last year's showdowns is that the Bucks do not have
the benefit of playing at their Columbus madhouse,
where they are invincible. However, a sizable con-
tingent of rooters from Columbus will considerably
reduce any home field advantages in this respect.
The artificial turf shouldn't effect the Buckeyes'
performance, as they have already played games on
the synthetic grass at Washington and Wisconsin, as
well as having practiced on the Michigan Stadium turf
With both teams entering today's contest at full
strength, Michigan's chances of upsetting the Bucks
rest on the team alone and should not be affected
by so-called "external factors." The task is a gigantic
one, as Ohio State has not fashioned its 22-game
winning streak on the strength of magic, although the
ballhandling of quarterback Rex Kern often makes
it appear that way.
Kern is flanked by an offensive entourage which is
virtually identical to last year's championship team
with the exception of graduated all-American tackles
Rufus Mayes and Tom Foley. However, their vacated
positions have been filled more than adequately by
Dave Cheney and Chuck Hutchinson.
Bull-like fullback Jim Otis is the awesome rushing
threat whom the Wolverines must stop with some
degree of success if they are to win. Otis has
gained 2398 yards in an illustrious career, and his
plunges into the line in last year's encounter, resulting

Within that period, said Presi-

special vice presidential attention.
Fleming expressed great pleasure
at Spurr's willingness to accept

Vice President for State Rela-
tions Arthur Ross commented on
the appointment saying, "Dr.
Spurr will be able to give more
help to the two campuses than any
of the present executive officers
would have had time for."
Spurr was born in 1918 in Wash-
ington, D.C. and reared in Mas-
sachusetts. At the age of 20 he
received his B.S. from the Univer-
sity of Florida and got his M.A. in
forestry two years later at Yale
University in 1940.

At least 3,000 women's liberation activists from the east-

vomen currently being held without bond on murder charges.
The women were among 14 Black Panthers, including
Lairman Bobby Seale, arrested last August and charged with
illing an alleged Panther turncoat. All have been denied
ond but are currently appealing that decision.
Today's demonstrators will march on the state court-

enting Women's Liberation and Black Panther women. The
rotesters may then post their demands on the courthouse
