It happens earlier and earlier
every year.
Michigan, undefeated and
ranked in the stratosphere, is
humbled by a group of angry
young men who are sick and
tired of their role as sacrifical
lambs to the cause of Wolverine
Two years ago, Purdue did it in the
ninth game. Last year, it was Mm-
nesota in the seventh game. Yesterday,
in the fifth game of another year of high
expectations, the Spartans of Michigan
State came to town and dazzled
Michigan with an incredible offensive
display that led them to a 24-15 upset
THE SPARTANS did most of fheir
damage in the first half, moving the
ball at will while piling up a 17-0 lead.
On the sidelines, coach Darryl Rogers
called a masterful half, mixing Eddie
Smith's aerial talents with a surprising
running game that consumed
Wolverine-like chunks of yardage up
the middle.
On the field, Smith and his cohorts
played virtually mistake-free football.
The Spartans had the ball seven
times -- and seven times they drove it
into Michigan territory. Then ran 48
plays, Michigan ran 21; they moved the
ball an amazing 307 yards, Michigan
moved 132; and they accounted for 16
first downs while Michigan made just
All the Wolverines could muster of-
fensively in that first half was an un-
successful field goal try that bounced
off the crossbar, and three intercep-
MIN tions in six passing attempts by Rick
ses Leach.
ept THEN, WHEN Leach finally started
finding receivers with the right colored
jersey in the second half and the
Wolverines started coming back, the
defense couldn't come up with the big
play-the fumble recovery, the inter-
ception, the sack-that wouldthave tur-
nedthe game around. Nfichigan never
came closer than the final score.
"This is the first time in ten years
that our defense just let us down,"
lamented Bo Schembechler after the

game. "They just didn't rise to the oc-
Schembechler was too disappointed
with his team's performance to say
much about MSU's offense, but he ad-
mitted he'd never seen the ball moved
against Michigan like it was yesterday.
"I don't know how many yards they
got against us," Schembechler said,
"but it must have been about 1000."
Not quite. But the Spartans did gain
496 yards on offense. Surprisingly, they
ran as well as they passed-exactly:

For the Spartans, who are on NCAA
probation preventing them from going
to a bowl game, it was the World Series
and Super Bowl combined. And they
won it.
Eddie Smith, MSU quarterback who
was 13 years old when State last beat
Michigan in 1969 called it: "The
greatest victory of my life.
It was a complete victory for Smith
and his mates. The well-coached senior
and his offense completely dominated
Michigan's defense, did not turn the
ball over and Smith completed a who.!
bunch of passes (20).
"THAT'S THE difference, the third-
down plays by Smith," analyzed Bo
Schembechler. "He made them." The
native Floridian fed his talented
receivers the ball time and time again
as State strutted down the field. p
"Going in, we thought we had a pretty
good package," said Michigan defen-
sive coordinator Bill McCartney of his
defense. But Smith may have changed

Voucher lan sparKS oppositior

Although probably the least
publicized tax amendment on the
November ballot, the Voucher Proposal
has caused enough stir to prompt more
organized opposition than either the
Tisch or Headlee amendments.
The Michigan Council About
Parochiad (CAP), a group of
educational and religious groups
organized several years ago to fight the
passage of "parochiad legislation," is
directing a state-wide fight against the
plan. By comparison, opponents of the
Tisch and Headlee amendments,
though numerous, are not as strongly
The local chapter of the CAP has been
writing letters, making phone calls, and
distributing leaflets at football games
to urge voters to reject the proposition.
"THE MOST important thing, in
these days of Proposition 13, is that the
voucher proposal won't save people
money at all," said Washtenaw CAP co-
chairperson Harvey Bertcher. "Our

essential thrust is to get the word out
and explain what this plan is. . . and
the voters will realize it is not a good
The proposed amendment, which was
placed on the ballot by Citizens for
More Sensible Financing of Education,
would prohibit the use of property taxes
to support public schools. Instead, the
plan would require the state to devise
another method of funding education.
The plan states that parents be
provided with "vouchers" to send their
children to the school of their choice.
The vouchers, would be turned over to
the schools, which would return them to
the state for reimbursement.
The new method of financing
education, according to both opponents
and supporters of the plan, would
probably be an income tax hike.
DAN VELDMAN, executive director
of the Campaign for Proposal H, said he
feels income taxes are "more fair"
than property taxes..

"We're talking a tax trade-off, not a
tax increase or a tax decrease," Veld-
man said.
According to the campaign director,
$1.8 billion worth of property taxes are
now used to fund the state schools from
kindergarten to the twelfth grade.
Veldman 'proposes a 2.3 per cent in-
crease in income taxes, bringing the
flat rate up to 6.9 per cent, and a 1.7 per
cent hike in single business taxes,
raising that rate to 4 per cent.
VELDMAN ALSO said with the

the duration, but they were barred from
the chapel during voting sessions.
Once all 199 were inside, the master

Charles Allmand has assumed the
post of new acting director of the
University's Affirmative Action
Programs following his appointment by
President Robben Fleming Thursday.
Allmand will continue to hold his
position as assistant to the Vice-
President for Academic Affairs Harold
Shapiro. He is replacing -eagelia
Pena, who became the acting director
of the Affirmative Action Programs af-

the change was Pena's heavy workload.
"Deagelia has been trying to do the
associate director's and the director's
job. To continue to do both jobs was too
much," Fleming said.
ACCORDING TO the president,
Pena's position as associate director
involves substantial statistical work,
making it difficult for one person to
hold down both positions.
Allmand, 53, said he hopes the office
can meet all its obligations to the
University and the community.
