OFFENSE POTENT ON WET FIELD
By ELISA ISAACSON
As the tax proposals battle continues
a month before the November election,
both supporters and opponents of the
three plans are promoting their causes
in courts and at public rallies.
Last week, the Michigan Supreme
ourt ruled that the voucher plan must
emain on the November ballot.
THE VOUCHER plan would give
parents money equivalent to funding
spent for public schools to be used for
parochial and other private schooling
for their children.
The plan, Proposal H, had been
challenged by the Council About
arochiaid, which raised 11 objections
to the plan.
Meanwhile, Shiawassee County
Drain Commissioner gobert Tisch and
Farmington insurance company
president Richard Headlee are
scheduled to debate their respective tax
proposals tomorrow before the
Economic Club of Detroit.

Defense holds Devils
to meager 76 yards
By RICK MADDOCK
Michigan tailback Harlan
Huckleby gained more yards
yesterday than the entire Duke
offense as the Wolverines (3-0)
destroyed the Blue Devils (2-1),
52-0, in front of 104,832 rain-
soaked fans in Michigan
Huckleby rushed for 84 yards
in 22 carries, along with scoring
two touchdowns. Michigan
totaled 478 yards in 86 plays,
while Duke struggled for 76
yards in 47 plays
"Congratulations to Michigan. They
were in control from the first series,
and it didn't change," Duke coach Mike
The Blue Devils only brought the ball
into Wolverine territory for one series
in the game. In the second quarter, they
reached Michigan's 39-yard line twice,
and on both succeding plays they were
repulsed back, once to the 50-yard line
and the next time to their own 43-yard
"WE GOT THE early breaks, and
that took them out of their game," said
Wolverine middle guard Dale Keitz.
"We mixed up our defense a lot. We
kept them guessing."
f Keitz recovered a fumble on Duke's
one-yard line, which virtually assured
that the game was to be a Michigan
rout. The Wolverines had just driven 81
yards in 15'plays, upping the score to 14-
0 with about 13 and a half minutes left in
the second quarter. The Blue'Devils
had to produce on the next series.
Blue Devil quarterback Mike Dunn
had a third and six situation on Duke's
15 yard line. He dropped back to pass,
and proceeded to drop the pigskin. He
appeared to have a couple of chances to
recover the ball, but all he did was push
it back seven yards to the Duke one-
yard line where Keitz fell on it.
Huckleby's one-yard plunge put Duke
THE MICHIGAN defense was superb
throughout the day in reaching up its
second straight shutout at home. The
Blue defense picked off four passes, two
by Mike Joly, one by Mike Harden and
one by Gene Bell.
Harden, Jolly, and Bell and guys are
doing a good job," Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler said. "It's tough to beat
Jolly. In fact, we have a tough time
beating him in practice.
"Our defense didn't have to play lthat
much in the game," Schembechler
said. "I think they made two or three
plays that I was disappointed with,
when Duke got some long gainers, but
other than that our defense played an
The offense wasn't too shabby either.
Discounting Michigan's game ending
possession, it had the ball 11 times.
Seven possessions resulted in touch-
downs, and one other for a field goal.
Twice the Wolverines had to punt, and
once they lost the ball on a Roosevelt
"Basically we did a very good job,"
Schembechler understated. "Matter of
fact, we've had three turnovers in three
games. We've fumbled three times, on-
ce each game."
Michigan proved right off that Duke
would not be able to shut down their
'running attack. On their opening drive,

V A TICAN MEDICAL PR OCEDURES QUESTIONED:
By AP and UPI
VATICAN CITY - More than 200,000
mourners paid silent tribute yesterday
to the smiling pope many of them never
got a chance to know.
Meanwhile, the sudden deaths of two
popes within two months has touched
off an international debate on medical
care at the Vatican.
"IT WAS too short, just too short,"
said Darrel Bloom, an Evanston, Ill.,
college professor, as he waited in line to
see the body of Pope John Paul I who
died Thursday night of a heart attack.
Vatican experts also said the car-
dinals had decided to speed up the
timetable for choosing a new pontiff
because they had already examined the
main problems facing the church and
the kind of man needed to deal with
them before the conclave that elected
Vatican officials said at least 250,000
people had filed past the pope's body in
the two days it lay on a tilted catafalque
in the papal apartments.

WASHINGTON (UPI) - An em-
ployee of Rep. Charles Diggs testified
yesterday the Michigan congressman
told him to pay expenses for his Detroit
district office with funds from his
bloated payroll check.
Felix Matlock said his salary ranged
from $900 per month to more than $2,000
per month, depending on the size of bills
his boss wanted him to pay.
MATLOCK, WHO has worked for
Diggs since 1965, said the Michigan
Democrat told him what bills to pay
during his monthly visit to the Detroit
office and that he cooperated.
"I didn't want to make any Waves,"
, Diggs is on trial on charges of
defrauding the government of about
$60,000 through an elaborate payroll
scheme. The government said his aides
paid personal and office bills for him
with their congressional payroll funds.

TAKING POST AT HILLSDALE COLLEGE:
Trowbridge to quit council
By STEVE GOLD.
Ann Arbor City Councilman Ronald
Trowbridge (R-Fourth Ward), whose
sarcastic comments have enlivened
council meetings since April, 1975, will
be resigning his seat to take a new job
at Hillsdale College.
Trowbridge will be taking charge of
the lecture program at the 1,000 student
college in Hillsdale, Mich., an ad-
ministrativewposition which will entail
coordinating the lectures, as well as
travelling to do promotion and fund
raising for the school.
"I GOT AN unsolicited phone call for
the job," he said yesterday, "and it
would have been foolish to turn it-
down." Trowbridge said he is looking
forward to the new post as being a
"much greater intellectual challenge"
than his present job as English

sity, his post on council, or even a state
