By PAUL CAMPBELL
The bruised right forearm Rick
each received from the Arizona
lefense definitely will not keep him
rom practicing or playing in the
1ichigan St. game, according to his
oach, Bo Schembechler.
"Nah, it's just a bruise," said Bo at
tis weekly press conference. "There's
1o way it's going to stop that kid from
playing."
SCHEMBECHLER will need Leach
to counter the play of MSU's fine senior
quarterback, 4d Smith. Smith passed
For over 300 yards against Notre Dame
xn Saturday, but the Spartans still lost,
W9-25.
"Smith has excellent judgement, a
quick release, and a fine touch,"

Schembechler said. "He's the best
passer we'll face."
Three of the reasons Smith is con-
sidered such a threat are flanker Kirk
Gibson, split end Eugene Byrd, and
tight end Mark Brammer. Together,
they compose the most explosive pass
receiving crew in the Big Ten.
ALL THAT talent, makes Schem-
bechler apprehensive about his inex-
perienced defensive secondary. Mike
Jolly is the only one of four deep backs
who had started a game before this
season. Still, the unit has comne up with
seven interceptions, while Michigan's
four opponents have averaged only 98.5
yards per game.
"They've come along well so far,"
Schembechler said, "but this will be

their final exam."
Depth is a problem in the secondary,
and when cornerback Gerald Diggs
limped off the field in the first half of
the Arizona game, Schembechler faced
the prospect of being only one-deep at
that position.
BUT DIGGS injury wasn't as bad as
originally feared. His strained ankle
tendon may hamper his practice time,
but Bo expects him to be ready by
Saturday.
Schembechler is predicting "a great
game," despite the fact that the Spar-
tans come to town with a somewhat
disappointing 1-3 record.
"They would have beaten Purdue if
Smith hadn't hurt himself," said
Schembechler, referring to the
shoulder injury that kept the Spartan
quarterback out of the second half of
Purdue's 21-14 win and the entire vic-
tory over Syracuse. "I would say that
they are better than they were last
year.
"THEY HAVE the great receivers,
they haven't lost anything at running
back, and Smith has more experience,"

explained Schembechler. "On defense,
they're giving up a lot of yardage and
points, but they have some great in-
dividuals - guys like (tackle Mel)
Land, (linebacker Dan) Bass, and
(wide safety Mark) Anderson."
The loss to Purdue put the Spartans in
danger of being eliminated from the
Big Ten race early on. They have to
beat Michigan to remain a factor. One
bonus is that Ohio State is not on their
schedule this year.
"They still have a legitimate shot,"
said Schembechler.
SCHEMBECHLER pined over the on-
tinuing injury problems. Gene John-
son's knees, Mel Owens' pinched nerve,
and Bill Dufek's leg will keep them all
out of uniform. They all were starters
before falling.
Defensive end Tom Seabron broke a
small bone in his hand, but will have it
taped and be able to play this week.
"We just might pass more our-
selves," Schembechler stated coyly at
the end of the conference. "But I don't
anticipate a high-scoring game. If it is,
we better be doing the scoring."

By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES-New York Yankees
Manager Bob Lemon named Ed
Figueroa, 20-9, as his starting pitcher
and said Reggie Jackson would be the
lesignated hitter for today's first game
af the best of seven 1978 World Series
against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Meanwhile, Manager Tommy La-
sorda of the Dodgers withheld his
pitching choice until a late Monday
workout, because he wanted to consult
with his coaches and inform the pitcher
first.
There seemed to be little doubt,
hough, that the National League
hampion Dodgers would go with right-
ander Burt Hooton or the veteran
eft-hander, Tommy John. The Yankees
re believed to be less potent against
eft-handers.
Lasorda also said that he would use
ee Lacy, Vic Davalillo or Joe
Ferguson as his designated hitter. Lacy
or Ferguson probably will go against
left-handers, with Davalillo facing
ankees right-handers.
This is the second time in World
ries history that the DH is being used
n the fall baseball classic. The
merican League rule first was used in
be Series two years ago, when Dan
essen played the role for the Cin-
innati Reds in a four-game sweep over
the Yankees, who sent Carlos May and

Reporter: Tell me Tommy, who are
you going to start for tomorrow's

Lasorda: I don't know yet. That
doesn't concern 'me right now. Now
take a look at this, the Gridde Picks.
I've got to get them in by Friday,
midnight at 420 Maynard to win a small
two-item Pizza Bob's pizza.

Elliott Maddox up in that spot.
Jackson, who with Lemon, Figueroa,
Lasorda and Dodgers first baseman
Steve Garvey appeared at a Monday
news conference, said about his DH
status, "I'm not crazy about it, but
Lemon has been doing an outstanding
job and whatever he says I'll go along
with. After all, winning is the bottom
line."
Lasorda left no doubt that he dislikes
the DH, complained that it takes away
from the strategy of the game, but said
he doesn't make the rules, only follows
them.
"I'm not in favor of the DH," he said.
"I don't like it because it takes away
from the strategy of the game. A lot of
managers like it because they don't
have to make as many decisions."
Tranquility was the theme of the
news conference. Figueroa and
Jackson praised Lemon for the peace
be brought to the previously haggling
Yankees. Lasorda and Garvey said the
August fisticuffs between Garvey and
teammate Don Sutton had served only
to make the National League winners a
closer unit.
Figueroa, who won 20 games for the
first time in his five-year major league
career, credited his success to the
fatherly-type Lemon.
"Billy Martin (former Yankee
manager) worked with me every seven
or eight days," Figueroa said. "Bob
Lemon worked me every four days and
that was the big difference. I started
winning."
Figueroa won his last eight starts as
the Yankees rallied from 14 games
back to overtake the Boston Red Sox,
and then went on to beat the Sox.in a
