SMITH STARS IN 42-14 ROUT:

The Michigan Daily-Sunday, October 22, 1978--Page 7

MSU
By JAMIE TURNER
Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING-There was no
letdown in East Lansing yesterday.
Led by the record-setting performan-
ce of quarterback Ed Smith, Michigan
State crushed, trampled and over-
whelmed a defenseless Indiana team,
42-14. Smith, who was the Big Ten
Player of the Week for his play in Ann
Arbor last Saturday, three three touch-
down passes as the Spartans won their
,second straight Big Ten contest.
"The first thing you worry about as a
coach is a letdown after a big game like
we had last week," said a pleased Spar-
tan coach Darryl Rogers. " And we
definitely didn't have one. Overall,
we're extremely pleased at what we
.did."1
DESPITE THROWING two intercep-
tions-one resulting in a 98-yard touch-
down by Indiana's Tim Wilbur late in
the game-and fumbling once, Smith
set fwo Big Ten records. His 369 yards
total offense and passing broke the
marks of former Spartan Eric Allen
(MSU-Purdue in 1072) and Ohio State's
Art Schlichter (last week vs. Purdue)
respectively.
Smith knew immediately who to
credit for his records. "I've sure got
some good receivers, don't I," smiled
the 5-10 senior. "Damn, when they get
the ball they sure can run. I think as a
group they're the best in the country."
The Spartans jumped on top quick
with two long first quarter scoring
passes. Kirk Gibsont caught a Smith
toss over the middle and turned the first

an't tell the young men
they're just obedient," joked
bout his team's attitude. In a
ious tone, "We have to play
me on a day-to-day basis.
e, we'll fail as a team."
f I get the Big Ten champion-
I won't mind at all (that
would keep MSU from atten-

ding a bowl)," said Smith. "The Big
Ten is the goal, the bowl games are just
the rewards for a good season."
The 76,013 Homecoming fans roared
approval on their Spartans' every move
as MSU raised its Big Ten mark to 2-1
and 3-3 overall. The Spartans scored
twice more in the second half on a pass
to tight end Mark Brammer and a ten-
yard run by tailback Derek Hughes. In-
diana tallied its final score on Wilbur's
interception return-also a Big Ten
record.

BIG TEN ROUNDUP

Buckeyes roll past Iowa, 31-7

COLUMBUS (AP)-Fresman quarterback Art Schlichter,
teamed with Doug Donley on a 78-yard bomb, one of three
touchdowns Ohio State scored in a little over two minutes
yesterday in thrashing Iowa 31-7.
Schlichter's long pass gave the Buckeys a 31-0 lead late in
the second quarter and Ohio State coasted to its 14th con-
secutive victory in the series with the Hawkeyes.
Schlichter, the Big Ten's total offense leader, completed
six of 12 passes for-102 yards and ran nine times for 28 more
yards in only three quarters.
Purdue 13, Illinois 0
CHAMPAIGN (AP)-Purdue quarterback Mark Herr-
mann tossed a touchdown pass and Scott Soversen booted two
field goals to lead the Boilermakes to a 13-0 victory over
Illinois.
Purdue, which leads the Big Ten conference, used the
strong running of backs John Macon and Russell Pope to con-

trol and maintain possession of the ball.
Illinois' offense was ineffective, and the Illini only
threatened once in the game, but fumbled the ball away deep
in Purdue territroy. Purdue had 25 first downs, compared
with nine for Illinois.
The victory boosted Purdue's record for the season to 5-1,
and dropped Illinois to 1-4-2.
Minnesota 38, Northwestern 14
EVANSTON (AP)--Roy Artis ripped off a 72-yard touch-
down run and Marion Barber and Kent .Kitzmann each
scored twice yesterday to lead Minnesota to a 38-14 victory
over winless Northwestern.
Artis' run featured a four-touchdown burst in the first
half, which powered Minnesota to a 28-7 lead and the Gophers
coasted after that to their third victory in six starts. The
triumph left Minnesota with a 2-1 record in the Big Ten while
Northwestern fell to 0-6-1 overall and 0-4-1 in the conference.

RON SPRINGS of Ohio State collects short yardage during the Buckeyes 31-7
victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes yesterday in Columbus. Springs gained 71
yards in 11 carries including a 39 yard touchdown run to lead the Bucks' ground

ME YER WINS 'M' FEDERA TION MEET:

Ex-Blue
By DIANE SILVER
Former cross country standout Greg Meyer
cracked the Michigan course record of 30:52 when
he sailed in at 30:45.18, leading the fleet at the
Michigan Federation cross country meet yesterday.
Last year's Big Ten champion and former Michigan
harrier Bill Donakowski was also among the com-
petitors at the Michigan Golf Course.

iarrier giv(
on the 10,000 meter (6.2 mile) course designed by
Michigan cross country coach Ron Warhurst. The
Wolverines' top seven harriers didn't compete in'
Michigan's only home meet of the season so they
could rest up for important upcoming meets.
About 50 runners competed from Michigan,;
Western Michigan and the Ann Arbor Track Club. A
number of independent entries were emong the1
competitors, including three-time All-Americans
Meyer and Donakowski.
PRESENTLY RUNNING for the Greater Boston
Track Club, Meyer held a substantial lead
throughout the entire race. At one and a half miles
he left about 70 yards of open space behind him with
former Michigan State star Herb Lindsay, Western
Michigan's Jeff Zylstra, and Donakowski vying for
second position.
By three and a half miles Meyer doubled his lead
over the second place Lindsay, followed by Zylstra
and Donakowski. This set the order for the rest of
the race as Meyer stretched out his lead by a
generous 150 yards.
Second place Lindsay trailed Meyer at 31:28.5,
followed by Zylstra at 31:58.7 and Donakowski at
32:35. Gordon Minty, the 1972 AAU 10,000 meter
winner, took seventh at 32.47. Michigan rounded out
the top ten with Bruce McFee (33:21) in eighth and
Jim Baumgartner (33:30) in tenth.
"I THOUGHT Donakowski and Lewis would be a
lot closer," said Meyer. "Donakowski needs to race
more," offered Warhurst. "That's what happens
when you only run a few races. Meyer's been run-
ning a lot more than Donakowski."
Meyer works and trains with Bill Rodgers, a
Boston Marathon winner and permier distance run-

ner. "All my training's long term now. Everything's
building up to the Nationals and eventually the 1980
Olympics. But you also have to have short term
goal," explained Meyer.
"That guy never gets out of shape," said Lindsay
about Meyer, who became the first native
Michigander to break the four minute mile since he
graduated two years ago.
"Meyer's fit from year to year," continued Lin-
dsay. "You can't ease off that much for any length
of time. It's just too hard to get back in shape."

Wings tie again
DETROIT (AP)-Reed Larson's
goal with 6:03 remaining last night
capped a Detroit comeback and gave
the Red Wings their third consecutive
tie-a 4-4 deadlock with the Minnesota
North Stars in a National Hockey
League game.
Detroit went into the third period
trailing 4-2. Erroll Thompson scored on
a power play at 9:29 of the stanza to
start the rally.
Each team scored twice in the
opening period. Thommie Bergman
and Thompson put the Wings in front
twice, at 1-0 and 2-1, but Minnesota's
Mike Fidler and Greg Smith notched
power play goals to tie the score for the
North Stars.
Ron Zanussi put Minnesota ahead, 3-
2, with a goal at 4:47 of the second
period. Then Tim Young made it 4-2 at
19:53 when he stole the puck from Lar-
son, went in on a breakaway and beat
Detroit goalie Rogie .Vachon with a
backhander.
Referee Gregg Madill called 25
penalties, 13 to Detroit, for a total of 68
minutes.
The Red Wings have yet to win at
home in four tries, though the crowd of
14,796 marked their fourth straight
sellout. The North Stars, meanwhile,
collected their first road point in three
games.

Pistons fall again
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Charlie
Johnson came off the bench to score 24
points last night and pace the unbeaten
Washington Bullets to a 119-99 National
Basketball Association victory over
Detroit.
Johnson, who came in when Larry
Wright sprained his ankle early in the
second quarter, sank seven of hine
shots as the Bullets pulled in front 64-54
by intermission.
Detroit, winless in five starts, pulled
even at 80-80 and at 86-86 at the end of
the quarter.
However, the Bullets went ahead to
stay early in the fourth quarter as Elvin
Hayes scored six straight points. Hayes
finished with 17 points, one less than
Mitch Kupchak.

Midwest conference discusses anti-apartheid strategy

(Continued from Page 1)
educational tools for the public;
" pushing for state-level legislation
forcing public institutions to divest
from corporations operating in South
Africa. Such a bill, sponsored by state
Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor), has
been introduced in the Michigan
legislature.
" attacking the Sullivan Principles
for being ineffective and enhancing the
political and economic rights of non-
whites in South Africa. The Sullivan
guidelines, which several U.S. cor-
porations have adopted, call for efforts
towards racial equality within the com-
pany's South African subsidiaries.
" pushing for student referendums to
get students involved in the divestiture

movement. Last spring, MSA voted by
more than a two-to-one margin to sup-
port University divestiture from South
Africa.
The resolutions and tactics were
agreed upon only after an hour-long
debate over whether to seek a broad set
of guidelines - the approach finally
taken - or to concentrate efforts on in-
dividual campus movements.
Several delegates argued that the
divestiture issue is too young to hold a
national following, while others insisted
that if a national network is created
now, it will produce most efficient
results. The group settled on devising
resolutions emphasizing the need to
develop student consciousness on the

issue.
THE WEEKEND conference is spon-
sored by the Divestiture Working
Group, a committee composed
primarily of members of the North-
western delegation.
Yesterday's morning session met
most of its difficulties when delegates
debated for more than an hour over how
to establish a rules and procedures
agreement. The delay upset several
delegates, who were anxious to start
discussions on South Africa.
Delegates also complained that Den-
nis Brutus, conference chairman and a
Northwestern faculty member, was not
responsive to delegate questions and
comments. They argued that he was
"arbitrary" in selecting issues to be
discussed.
KATE RUBIN SAID today she will
propose selecting a new chairperson.

Many of the delegates expressed
pessimism about whether a sound
regional coalition can be established
because of the divergent groups
represented.
"There was a lot of rhetoric today,
and while we want a democratic
process, I think it's agreed that there is
