LEACH TOSSES THREE SECOND HALF TDS
By HENRY ENGELHARDT
Special to The Daily
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Michigan's 28-
14 win over Notre Dame yesterday
might have looked easy, but it wasn't.
The 2-0 Wolverines played the second
half of the game as if it were their last
of the season and they also got a few
breaks, in dealing the Irish (0-2) their
second consecutive home defeat.
IT TOOK A lousy Notre Dame han-
doff, a Jerry Meter interception, a few
wide open receivers for Rick Leach's
throws and a team attitude of never-
say-die to earn this victory.
"Lots of our kids played their guts out
in that second half," said Bo Schem-
bechler, with a proud smile. "We will
not wilt physically."
Scembechler's squad started slow,
but hit with more intensity as the day
wore on. The Irish, on the other hand,
stepped on their own toes with greater
frequercy as they and their capacity
(59,075) crowd saw a 14-7 halftime lead
AFTER TAKING the second half
kick, Notre Dame drove from its own 24
to Michigan's 26 where on first and ten,
quarterback Joe Montana and running
back Vagas Ferguson had handoff
trouble. Curtis Greer pounced on the
loose ball for the Wolverines.
The Irish did not move the ball effec-
tively the rest of the afternoon, getting
only four first downs and turning the
ball over four more times after that
initial possession of the second half.
Meanwhile, the Wolverines grew
more confident and capable ion each
possession. They turned the Montana-
Ferguson fumble into seven points on a
seven-minute, 71-yard drive that ended
with a Leach-to-Doug March pass
covering five yards.
"I THOUGHT WE played excellent
offensive football in the second half,"
*Tight end Marsh was open repeatedly
and Leach hit him four times, twice for
touchdowns. It was Leach's second half
passing (three touchdowns) and fine
blocking by the offensive line that
keyed the offensive surge.
Leach, who did not practice either
Tuesday or Wednesday because of an
ankle injury, completed four of 13 in the
first half but was five of six for 89 yards
in the second half.
The offensive line gave Leach ample
time to find his receivers, who were
wide open most of the time. The line,
missing tackle Bill Dufek due to a leg
injury, pushed the Irish around in the
third and fourth quarters and the
backs, most notably Harlan Huckleby,
"THE OFFENSIVE line really pum-
ped them out," said Schembechler.
"You don't (usually) run Notre Dame
out like that."
On Notre Dame's second possession
of the second half, Wolverine captain
Jerry Meter picked off a Montana
throw and returned it 14 yards to the
"Montana must've thought that he
could get the ball over my head," ex-
plained Meter, "and I just reached up
and got it."
THE THIRD quarter ended with
Michigan on Notre Dame's 16, but on
the first play of the fourth quarter
Leach found Marsh a lonely figure in
the end zone and the Wolverines had
thei winning points.

Government spy opponents aimed
their National Organizing Conference,
held this weekend in the Michigan
Union, at two methods of ,accom-
plishing their goal: obtaining and
disseminating information about
government spying, and organizing a
viable force to challenge and ultimately
end domestic spying activity.
Most of the discussion centered
around the twin themes, and the 200
registered members planned tactics to
be used by both local groups and a
A major issue, covered during the
second workshop, was possible actions
to prevent covert intelligence work on
college and university campuses.
+Panelist Ahmad Jabbari described CIA
efforts to. recruit and place him as an
agent in Iran while he was a student at
Washington University in St. Louis.
Campaign to Stop Government
Spying (CSGS) member Bart Osborn
said actions against college recruiting
are necessary because university
guidelines have proved ineffectual. He
cited the case of the Central Intelligen-
ce Agency's (CIA) choice 'to ignore
guidelines set by Harvard University.
"It's gotten back to the point where
we see it has to be legislated," OsbQrn
said. "The law 'is on the public's side
because what they (intelligence
groups) do is criminal," he added.
Conference sponsors have taken bar-
ticular care to emphasize that the CIA
is not the only culprit in intelligence
abuses. Workshops were conducted on
spying by private companies, the Law
Enforcement Intelligence Unit (LEIU>,
local police and campus police.
Environmentalist - and anti-nuclear
groups in particular - have been a corg-
stant target of private spies. CSGS
members have charged that Georgia'
Electric Company and other utilities
have begun to develop intelligence
branches of their own.

by the Central Intelligence Agency
(CIA) and the Federal Bureau of In-

diversity was reflected by the par-

Organizing Conference to Stop Gover-

Native Americans, blacks, anti-

Carter raps PLO,
compares to KKK
ALIQUIPPA, Pa. (AP) - President
Carter yesterday compared the
Palestine Liberation Organization
(PLO) to the Ku Klux Klan, the Nazi
party and the Communist Party, saying
"it would be nice for us if they would
just go away."
Carter's remark at a town meeting in
this Pittsburgh suburb came in respon-
se to a questioner who asked why the
PLO was allowed to retain a small in-
formational office in Washington.
THE PRESIDENT responded by
saying that many organizations "ob-
noxious to us" still have the right to free
speech in America so long as they don't
pose a threat to the nation's security.
"There are many groups like this that
cause us concern - the Ku Klux Klan,
the Communist Party, the Nazis," Car-
ter said, adding: ."It would be nice for
us if they would just go away."
