LEACH CLOSES ON RECORD
Michigan mutilates Iowa
to stay in race
By BOB MILLER
Special to The Daily
IOWA CITY - Behind a crushing
defense, and a controlled offense,
Michigan clobbered Iowa, 34-0, on a
crystal clear day at Kinnick Stadium.
The shutout was number four in eight
games for the Wolverines and their
second straight on the road. Michigan
so thoroughly dominated the contest,
that the Hawkeyes could only manage
61 yards total offense - and minus four
THE LOSS was just one more disap-
pointment in a season of troubles for
Iowa. After winning their opening
game, the Hawkeyes have proceeded to
drop seven in a row, assuring the team
at this midwestern university its 17th
consecutive losing season.
Further adding to the misery of the
49,120 people who comprised the
smallest crowd of the season at Iowa,
was the fact that Michigan won for the
ninth time in the 10 games played here
between these teams.
The Wolverines wasted no motion in,
downing the Hawkeyes. Michigan won
the coin toss, elected to receive and
marched methodically down the field 74
yards in 13 plays for a quick 7-0 lead.
THE BIGGEST asset in the Michigan
offense all game was the ability to con-
vert third down situations into first
downs and keep many drives moving.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Troops trying
to keep student protesters from mar-
ching to the home of a Moslem holy
man opened fire with automatic
weapons and tear gas yesterday near
Tehran University. The students
claimed at least 40 persons were killed,
but the government denied there were
Other unconfirmed. reports said at
least 10 youths were shot dead and 30
wounded. Information Minister
Mohammed Reza Ameli-Tehrani said
the reports of deaths were "not true.''
He did, however, confirm that many
persons had been injured.
GOVERNMENT sources said the
troops opened fire into the crowd of
students when they did not obey orders
to disperse as they attempted to march
to the home of Ayatullan Taleghani.
The youths responded by throwing
bricks and setting fire to cars, the sour-
ces said. Moslem ayatullahs have been
among the key leaders of the current
anti-government campaign here.
Witnesses later reported the violence
spread to the city's main avenue, where
the youths shattered ground-floor win-
dows of the American-owned Intercon-
tinental Hotel, and set fire to a bus and
a fire truck.
MSA takes issues
stands for first time
Official Iran Radio reported anti-
government demonstrations in 17 other
towns and cities throughout the country
resulting in four deaths and an un-
disclosed number of injuries.
THE BROADCAST said the demon-
strators, led by religious leaders and
opposition politicians, demanded the
end of martial law in Tehran and 11
'other Iranian cities and a number of
In the central Iranian city of Isfahan,
tens of thousands of demonstrators
marched peacefully through the streets
showering battle-ready troops with
flowers. Isfahan is the site of a giant
Iranian air force base. About 11,000
Americans live and work in the city.
The anti-government violence was
the latest in months of protests by or-
thodox Moslems against Shah
Mohammad Reza Pahlavi's wester-
nization of this traditional Islamic
society and by political dissidents
demanding democratic reforms.
THE NATIONAL Iranian Oil Co.,
meanwhile, was trying to restore some
normalcy to the strike-bound oil in-
dustry by dispatching retired personnel
and key executives to oil production
The strike by oil workers demanding
higher pay, an end to martial law and
release of political prisoners is costing
the country nearly $60 million a day.
Striking employees of government-
run Iran Air have ignored repeated
warnings to get the airline's fleet
operative again. That strike is costing
millions of dollars a day in lost revenue.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Leaders of
20 Arab nations sent a delegation to
Cairo yesterday in a last-ditch bid to
talk Anwar Sadat out of making a
separate peace with Israel, but the
Egyptian president responded with a
swift and angry rebuff.
The four-man delegation carried with
it an implicity offer of massive Arab
financial aid if Egypt abandons its go-
it-alone peace drive. But Sadat
declared to the Egyptian Parliament,.
"All the millions in the world will not
buy the will of Egypt."
THE RECONCILIATION mission'
dispatched by the Arab summit
meeting here was headed by Lebanese
Prime Minister Salim el-Hoss.
Sadat went before the Parliament in
Cairo a short time after word reached
the Egyptian capital that the Hoss
group was headed there.
"Before coming to this rostrum," he
told the legislators, "we were informed
by foreign news agencies that those
meeting in Baghdad had sent a
delegation which was already on its
way. They did not ask permission. They
shall not meet with me or any Egyptian
SADAT TOLD a news conference
later, however, that he would be willing'
to meet with Arab heads of state.

According to a poll released last
night, the contest for governor is in a
dead heat between incumbent
Republican William Milliken and
Democratic challenger William Fit-
In the U.S. Senate race the poll, which
was conducted by Market Opinion
Research and released by the Detroit
News and WJBK-TV, showed Democrat
Carl Levin maintaining a solid lead
over incumbent Robert Griffin.
The poll concluded that the gover-
nor's race is "too close to call," with
Milliken holding the support of 47 per
cent of the sample, Fitzgerald 44 per
cent, and nine per cent undecided. The
three-point gap between the candidates
matches the survey's margin of error.
THE RESULTS showed Milliken has

they are welcome and I am ready to sit

The official Iraqi news agency said
Hoss' delegation carried a message
from President Ahmed Hassan al-Bakr
of Iraq, chairman of the Arab League
summit, saying that if Sadat agreed to
return to the Arab fold, "the summit
conference promises to guarantee the
steadfastness of Egypt and its people."

hotel and were expected to return to

Breaking with its tradition of
remaining nonpartisan, the Michigan
Student Assembly (MSA) endorsed
Democratic candidates for the Board of
Regents, state House, and state Senate
at its meeting Tuesday night.
MSA is supporting Regents Paul
Brown (D-Petoskey) and James
Waters (D-Muskegon) in their bid for
re-election, incumbent Rep. Perry
Bullard for the state House, and Dr.
Edward Pierce for the state Senate.
ON THE ballot proposals, MSA con-
sidered only those that would affect
students, and voted to oppose Proposal
D, which would raise the legal drinking
age to 21; the Tisch amendment, which
would cut property taxes; the Headlee
amendment, which would provide for
tax limitation; the voucher plan, which
prohibits the use of property taxes for
schools and establishes a voucher
system for financing education -of
students . at public and nonpublic
According to Communications Coor-
dinator Kate Rubin, who researched
the election for MSA, it was difficult to
decide on Regents candidates because

After Gregg Willner booted a 30-yard
field goal to boost Michigan's lead to 10-
0, the tempo of the game was pretty
much set and the Wolverines had their
way without so much as a whimper
from the Hawkeyes.
ONCE AGAIN Leach dominated the
offense. Although he ran for seven yar-
ds, he needs three more to become the
sixth quarterback in NCAA history to
rush for 2000 yards in a career. But
Leach also tossed the ball 17 times,
completing nine for 191 yards and two
touchdowns. The pair of aerial strikes

just one shy of the NCAA record set by

Iowa Coach Bob Commings thought
Michigan's offense was awesome. "We
couldn't negate all their talent. We took
away their option and inside game, but
we couldn't negate it all. We worked on
stopping their- running game, but we
weren't prepared for their passing at-

Poposals may revamp Union
By BRIAN BLANCHARD
After more than a year of lobbying to
hake up what they consider "an in-
titution without a soul," it looks as
though student leaders are finding
more support in a drive to transform
the Michigan Union into a "Winter
A draft of the so-called "Sturgis
Report" - a combined analysis-plan of
the Union prepared by a committee of
four University administrators -
recommend§ the Regents transfer ad-
ministrative duties for the Union from
the ten-member Union Board to the Of-
fice of Student Services.
IN ADDITION, it recommends the
establishment of food service
operations "attractive to students in
price and quality," and includes a list of
suggested physical changes for the
PRESIDENT Robben Fleming ad-
vocated in a memo last February shif-
ting control from the Union Board to a
University vice-president, adapting the
Union Station area to a "rathskeller-
type operation," and converting all, or
just some, of the 105 hotel rooms in the
Union into dorm rooms.
After reading the Fleming memo, the
Regents approved a study of the
situation. Nine months later, the
Sturgis Committee report reaffirms to
a large extent what students and some
administrators have said about the
Union all along.
Jeff Lebow, the Michigan Student
Assembly representative to the Union,
Board and the Union Programming
Chairman, said, "We favor the plan. It
sets' a tone for the building."
THE COMMITTEE members split on
operation with its current program."
The committee urged the Regents to
make a firm decision on the University
Club, as well as the hotel operations.
THE TWO-PHASE plan outlined in
the Sturgis Report would cost* the
University $2.61 'more per student in the
near future and perhaps as much as
$6.46 more per student over the next 15
years. Current student fees amount to
$212,954, or $3.04 per student.
Specific suggested changes include:
* Altering the Union Station area for
meeting and study rooms or some new
* Relocating the newsstand and
ticket sales functions from the first to
the ground floors;
" Installing new services on the
ground floor such as bank machines,
craft sales, travel agencies, and
