Wolverines c

Michigan captured the first
round of the rose Bowl
preliminaries before 105,410
fans at Michigan Stadium,
using power offense and
charging defense against a
stunned Purdue football team.
The 24-6 victory gives
Michigan a share of the Big Ten
lead with Ohio State and
Michigan State, for the tenth
consecutive year the game
against the Buckeyes will be
the battle for the roses.
Russell Davis and Rick Leach rolled
over the supposedly stingy Purdue
defense. Going into the game, Purdue

had given up an average of 117.9 yards
rushing. The Wolverines cruised for 343
yards on the ground, led by Davis with
134 yards and Leach with 90 yards.
The Wolverines .only completed five
passes, but two of them were for
touchdowns. . Ralph Clayton scored
on an eleven yard grab, and Doug
Marsh snagged a ten yard touchdown
Purdue's aerial game was quickly
lost when sophomore quarterback
Mark Herrmann was injured with 5:26
left in the first quarter. According to
preliminary reports he received a
pinched nerve in his neck. Herrmann
was hurt on a 12-yard pass completion
to Jim Young. While Young was
making a one-handed diving catch,
Herrmann was hit by the pass rushers.
"HE HAS A concussion and neck
injury," Purdue coach Jim Young said.

rush P
"It occurred after letting go of the ballt
and a forearm hit him."t
Freshman Chuck Oliever replaced the1
sophomore sensation, but he didn't stay1
on the field very long for his first series.
He was hit 13 yards behind the line of1
scrimmage by linebacker RonY
simpkins on his second play. The hit
forced the ball free, and linebacker
Tom Seabron recovered. Oliver was
sacked four times in the game, losing 45r
yards. He was able to pass 16 times,1
completing six for 54 yards.1
"They (Michigan defense) didn't givei
me time to throw," Oliver said. "We
just couldn't put the ball in the. endt
zone. They're a quick team."
THE MICHIGAN rush was the key toI
the fine defensive play. All day long the
Michigan rushers were invading the
Purdue backfield.I
"That's. (rush) what we basically

tried to do," said Michigan tackle
Curtis Greer. "I think our secondary
played excellent. They gave us time to
get in there and put our hands in the
quarterback's face. On the offensive
line, we made a commitment that "no
matter what it took, we were gonna get
in his face."
Free safety Michael Harden added,
"I think basically on defense we played
a good game. The key to the secondary
play was the play that the defensive line
gave us. Greer and those guys just got
in and rushed him out."
PURDUE NEVER did score against
the defense, as the only points it scored
were on a blocked punt with 9:32 left in
the game. Tom Kingsbury blocked
Gregg Wilner's punt from the
Michigan ten. The ball was snatched by
Mark Adamle who trotted into the end
zone. The Boilermakers attempted to
go for two on the conversion, but
defensive captain Jerry Meter snubbed
that attempt as he sacked Oliver.
"I don't know what happened on the
blocked punt," Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler said. "It's upsetting. It
was the first time we've had a blocked
punt since nineteen hundred and sixty-
nine when Missouri did it against us in
the same field position."
Another factor that helped the
defense out is that Purdue only ran 50
plays. Michigan ran 83, and one can see
that the Wolverine defense spent much
of the time on the sidelines. In the
second quarter, Michigan had 21 plays
for 145 yards while the Boilermakers
had 11 plays for 11 yards. The situation
was just as bad for the Boilermakers in
the third quarter. Michigan ran 27 plays

Political Science Department
Chairman Sam Barnes last week
challenged three of five persons chosen
by Political Science Asst. Prof. Joel
Samoff as candidates for the Literary
College (LSA) Executive Committee
Appeal Board which will rule on
Samoff's tenure appeal case, according
to a highly-placed source.
LSADean Billy Frye confirmed the
challenges, and said the committee had
reached a decision on them. He refused,
however, to comment further. Barnes,
who refused comment on "any phase of
this process," would not confirm his

Some Vietnamese children hang from the boarding ladder of the freighter Hai Hong yesterday, awaiting their
fate in the wake of Malaysia's refusal to grant them shelter. At a meeting at the Malaysian capital yesterday,
France and Canada offered to take in some of the refugees, but it*is yet unclear whether the U.S. made any
such commitment. The American quota of 25,000 Indochinese refugees for 1978 has already been filled.
The stranded reportedly bought their way out of Vietnam over a month ago by paying a Hong Kong syndicate
$5 million for a "cruise."


SAMOFF, WHO has twice been
denied tenure by his department,
appealed the case in October to the LSA
Executive Committee, a group of 30
faculty members. From, this
committee, the two parties involved in
the appeal, Samoff and Barnes, must
each select five candidates for the
three-member appeal board. Barnes
and Samoff would each then veto four
members of the other's group. The two
remaining candidates would
automatically become part of the
appeal board, and would then select the
third member from the entire
Executive Committee.
Barnes was apparently so concerned
about the three candidates in question
that he decided to challenge their status
as candidates rather than simply veto
them later, a departmental source said.
Samoff said he was surprised not only
by the challenge itself, but also by the
Executive Committee's handling of the
matter. He said he was first informed of
the challenges by LSA Associate Dean
Bernard Galler a week ago Thursday in
a telephone call.
Samoff said he then made some
inquiries and learned that "at first he
(Barnes) had protested all five of my,
choices, but then reduced the number to
three. Then on Thursday night I drafted
a memo objecting to the objections, and
objecting to the possibility that they
would be considered without my having
a chance to respond. Friday morning I
called to tell the Executive Committee
that I was sending them that memo,

Under a little-publicized act signed
by President Carter last August, a
National Consumer Cooperative Bank
will be established, providing consumer
co-ops with a new source of financial
and technical aid.
Although the bill was passed several
months ago, provisions are still unclear
and local co-ops don't seem to know
how it will affect them. There's no
telling how many of the various types of
co-ops there are in the area, but the bill
will likely contribute to the number. It
will be a year before guidelines for the
bill are secured.
MOST LOCAL co-op representatives
say they feel the bill is severely limited,
and many of them had lobbied for what
they call a more comprehensive act.
Funding and assistance of the
new bill is geared toward lower-class
groups, so established Ann Arbor
cooperatives with a steady income will
have trouble competing for the same
funds as newly formed cooperatives.
The bill consists of two sections, the
first of which establishes the National
Consumer Cooperative Bank and
allows it to make market rate loans to

measure of this type, but eventually
signed a compromise bill, resembling
the more conservative Senate version,
last Aug. 22.
STEW KOHL of North American
Students of Cooperation (NASCO) said
he does not feel the bill provides enough
money for technical assistance. "Two
million dollars for technical assistance
which is to be spread out over 50 states
is like nothing," he said. "You have to
remember that the authorization
covers food, and housing along with all
the other service cooperatives."
Both Kohl and Luther Buchele of the
International Cooperative Council
(ICC) explained they don't expect the
bill to be implemented until at least a
year from now, as regulations still need
to be set up.
Forty-seven nationwide hearings,
including one Dec. 1 in Detroit will seek
public input on matters pertaining to
the bill. The hearings and other
regulatory meetings will attempt to
define generalities and mold them into
specific guidelines. Co-op leaders and
government agencies will work
together in setting rules.

for federal aid

and they said they had already made a
decision. They said they had 'rejected
three of the five nominees."
SAMOFF SENT his memo anyway,
and the Executive Committee decided
to suspend its decision until Samoff had
a chance to respond to the protest. He
did so, and the committee altered its
decision. Sources said the committee
let one of the challenges stand and
rejected the other two.
NeitherBarnes nor Frye would
confirm this, and Galler was
unavailable for comment. Samoff,
however, said he was informed that
that was the "nature of the decision."
Samoff said he was uncertain of
Barnes' reasons for the challenges,
especially since he could simply have
vetoed the three nominees he felt were

My sense is that the department just'

the buying of a new building for the co-
op will be much easier with the
establishment of the bank. He

explained that last year his co-op
couldn't buy a permanent building
because a local bank would not
mortgage it. The co-op is currently
renting its space.
"Once we're able to apply for funding
through the co-op bank we should be
able to buy," Wadland said. "A co-op
bank will be much more understanding
of the situation of a co-op."
Ann Arbor co-ops have traditionally
been able to establish themselves, and
