i Im.,

By PAUL CAMPBE LL
Tony Mason has been here before.
Back . in the mid-60's, he spent four
years assisting then-Michigan coach
Bump Elliott. But ten years have
brought a lot of changes.
There were no maddening crowds
back then. There was no Tartan Turf.
rhere was no Bo Schembechler, which
meant that beating 'Michigan at home
was merely difficult, not impossible.
BUT MASON, who brings his 3-1
Aizona squad into face undefeated
ichigan this afternoon before the 19th
onsecutive 100,000 crowd, doesn't ex-
pect things to be like they were. He isn't
'wed, but he knows what he and his
m are up against. .
"We are facing what we consider an
utstanding team, maybe the best in
he country," Mason said. "We don't
need to talk about their strengths and
hey have no weaknesses.
"Michigan is a sound and structured
ootball team and they have the kind of
lepth you always hope to achieve in
yoaching," Mason continued. "They

are a great team, always have been,
always will be. They do it up right."
The Wildcats have done it up right
three times already this year against

Michigan.
"THE ARIZONA team I've seen on
films is much improved over Arizona

try.
Still, nice things were being said
about Duke at this time last week, and

weak sisters, Oregon St., Kansas St.,
and Iowa. But they ran into trouble in
Lubbock, losing to Texas Tech. At least
one authority thinks enough of that per-
formance to rate Arizona a threat to

teams of the recent past," is how
Schembechler puts it. "They're bigger
and quicker, plus definitely stronger on
defense."
Bo's pre-game comments on
Michigan's opponents can usually be
disregarded as over-serious prophecies
of doom. Unfortunately, Arizona's four-
game statistics make them look like an
impressive football team and make it a
little harder to simply ignore Schem-
bechler.
Take this quarterback, Jim Krohn.
He's completed over 66 per cent of his
passes, with only one interception on 51
tries.
OR TAILBACK Larry Heater, a
junior college hotshot who seems to
have made a successful transition to
major college ball. He's averaging 4.7
yards per carry.
But the gaudiest stat belongs to cor-
nerback Mark Streeter. On five punt
returns, he's averaged 21.1 yards per

it did the Blue Devils little good. Mason
admits it would take an extraordinary
effort to win.
"Our best hope is to play our game to
perfection."
WOLVERINE TALES: Stanley Ed-
wards will see action at tailback today,
after being idled by injury more than a
month ... The man Edwards backs up
will probably step up a notch in
Michigan's all-time record book today.
Harlan Huckleby needs only 28 yards to
pass Tom Harmon and assume sixth
place on the all-time rushing
list ... Meanwhile, Rick Leach is
slowly gaining on Don Morehead, but
still needs ten completions to become
the all-time leader in that depar-
tment ... An example of how Schem-
bechler builds up Michigan opponents
is his comment on Arizona's loss to
Texas Tech. "They lost a very close
game in Lubock," said Bo. The score?

BIG T EN ADVANC E
Spartans rest hopes on defense

By DAVID ZEMAN
Don't bother looking for a ticket, the game has
been sold out for months. And although the luster
has been somewhat tarnished by its disappointing
record, Notre Dame is still a magic word in East
Lansing. The Irish and Michigan State each have 1-2
records and see this contest as a pivotal game in
their seasons.
Michigan State will start versatile Ed Smith at
quarterback. Smith, who has been plagued by
injuries this year, started in last week's 30-9 loss to
USC, and threw three interceptions. But with
another week's practice under his belt, Smith
should regain the form that made him one of the
better passers in the Big Ten last year.
In addition to Smith, the Spartans have an
explosive all-purpose back in Eugene Byrd. And
Kirk Gibson, with lightning fast speed, is one of the
finest receivers in the nation.
But if MSU is entertaining hopes of upsetting the
Irish, it will have to find some consistency on

defense. The Spartans' game plan for this Saturday
is to try and contain tailback Jerome Heavans and
quarterback Joe Montana (52 per cent passing
average for 438 yards). Easier said than done.
In Wisconsin, the Badgers are looking to match
last year's fast start after three games without a
loss this season. A capacity crowd of 75,000 will
witness their clash against Indiana. Wisconsin's
entire starting backfield is questionable because of
injuries. But reserve quarterback Mike Kalasmiki,
who was the hero of last week's game, passing for
232 yards and two touchdowns, is a better than
average replacement.
For the second consecutive week, Woody Hayes'
Buckeyes must prepare for an aerial assault. Last
week against Baylor, OSU's secondary was riddled
for 249 yards and three touchdowns. Southern
Methodist quarterback Mike Ford hopes to improve
on that.
On offense, the Buckeyes must do without star
tailback Ron Springs who injured his leg last week.
Sophomore Calvin Murray picked up 93 yards in

relief duty against Baylor and will start in Springs'
spot.
Purdue faces Wake Forest (1-3) at home after
coming off a tough road loss to Notre Dame. The
Boilermakers sport one of the most potent
backfields in the Big Ten. John Macon has already
gained 259 yards averaging 5.4 yards a carry, while
his partner Russell Pope isn't far behind with 247
yards and an average of 5.5 yards a rush.
Illinois (1-2-1), who last week won its first game
against Syracuse, faces the same Missouri team
that shutout Notre Dame last month.
Utah (2-1) invades Iowa (1-2) today and Hawkeye
coach Bob Commings insists, "I still believe that
Iowa has a football team." The Hawkeyes have only
scored three points in their last two games.
Powerful Arizona State should have no difficulty
in disposing of winless Northwestern. The Wildcats
are once again fighting their way to the bottom of
the Big Ten standings.
Minnesota hosts Oregon State to close out the Big
Ten slate. The Gophers gave both Ohio State and
UCLA a good game before losing and should have
the muscle to whip (0-3-1) Oregon State.

the world's largest kazoo band.
"We tried to work it into the theme of
a Guinness Book of Records show,"
said Marching Band graduate assistant
Chuck Hicks. "(Athletic Director) Don
Canham was all gung ho for it. He
really thought it was something the
crowd would enjoy."
THE IDEA was the brainstorm of
Band Director George Cavender and
announcer Karl Grapentine. According
to Hicks, Canham was willing to fork
out the $7000 necessary to purchase the
kazoos, and plans for the show were
beginning to develop.
"Then an NCAA directive came down
that had been issued to all stadiums
which forced home teams to be respon-
sible for crowd control," Hicks said.,
This rule is the same one which
you've heard announced during each
game this season, warning the fans
(especially the ones in the end zone) to
control their noise so that the players

a konflict
may hear the signals.
"THE RULE speaks to excessive
noise on the part of the home team
crowd," explained Charles Harris,
Assistant Athletic Director. "If the
crowd makes so much noise that the
quarterback can't call the signals, the
official can issue a warning for the first
offense, and, at his discretion, can walk
off penalty yardage against the home
team for the second offense."
Periodic renditions of "The Victors"
or "Let's Go Blue" could result in
similar confusion, probably to the
delight of thousands of fans.
With no way to limit the fans' playing
of the instruments to halftime, it
became impossible to incorporate the
element into the show.
So the idea, which was originated last
July, was scrapped in August when the
new rule was announced. "It's too bad
- it would have been a fun thing to do,"
said Hicks.

Harriers gain honor
Special to the Daily
The Michigan cross country team's new emphasis on team performance
paid off yesterday, as the harriers ran away with the top honors in Notre
Dame's Invitational at South Bend.
The Wolverines had five runners place within :19 seconds of each other,
as the Blue runners placed first among 22 teams. Michigan's team total of 67
points easily topped second place Auburn (96), third place Florida (143), and
fourth place Eastern Illinois (157).
Dan Heikkinen, who was the harrier's top runner in last month's
Springbank Invitational, was again Michigan's leader as he came in 7th
place. Immediately behind Heikkinen was Dave Lewis in 8th place, followed
by Doug Sweazey (13th), Steve Elliott (15th), and Bill Wiedenbach (24th).
"All in all we did very well," commented coach Ron Warhurst. "Lewis
and Sweazey came on real strong at the end."
