Wolverines, 12-10
Blocked kick costs
Blue heartbreaker

ABC television could not have
asked for a better ending. With
seven seconds remaining in the
"classic matchup" between
football legends Notre Dame
and Michigan, Wolverine
senior placekicker Brian
Virgil's 42 yard field goal at-
tempt was blocked by Bobby
Crable, giving Notre Dame a'
hotly contested 12-10 upset.
ABC television could have
asked for a better played game.
In a contest featuring two of the
titans of college football,
played before 105,111 partisan
Michigan fans, one would have
and should have expected bet-
ter football.
The encounter was marred by inter-
ceptions at key moments in the contest
and coaching. blunders by both sides
throughout the game. Nonetheless,
when the dust clears, people will not
remember that Michigan outgained
Notre Dame 306-179, but instead that
the Irish came out on top when they
blocked a field goal at the end.
TRAILING 12-10 with 2:02 left on the
clock, Michigan regained possession of
the ball at their own 42 yard line
following a short 21 yard punt by the
Irish's Dick Boushka. The Wolverines'
better passsing quarterback, John
Wangler, replaced their better runner,
B.J. Dickey, who seemed to lose his
poise after playing an excellent first
Two Wangler passes fell incomplete
and another time he was forced to
scramble out-of the pocket for a seven
yard gain. This set up a fourth and
three, do or die situation, for Schem-
bechler's unbeaten Wolverines. But
Wangler rose to the occasion, hitting
Ralph Clayton for seven yards and a
first down.
Wangler then completed tosses to
tight end Doug Marsh for six yards and
then to Alan Mitchell for 15, resulting in

another Wolverine first down at the
Notre Dame 23. Here ensued one of the
many "commqnications" blunders;
Wide receiver Mitchell ran onto the
field and gave a play to Wangler and
then ran off the field. This illegal sub-
stitution meant a five yard penalty
against Michigan.
AFTER STANLEY Edwards scam-
pered through the middle for eight yar-
ds and Wangler hurled an incomplete
pass, Michigan committed another
fatal mistake. In an attempt to move
the ball closer to the middle of the field,
the Wolverines tried an off tackle run.
There was one problem, though. The
play took too long in execution and Ed-

THE ALABAMA National Guard,
with local police, was working to con-

and a 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew.
Richardson said the looting problem
was under control, but that some in-

and 14 adults have been arrested and
charged with looting since the storm

before midnight Wednesday.

'Ping up' protest

Faculty reports key
to S. Africa policy

The uproar expected later this week
over the University's holdings in cor-
porations which do business in South
Africa will center around a report
prepared by a faculty financial ad-
visory committee - the second such
document to be reviewed by the
University Board of Regents in the last
18 months.
Both reports were prepared in
response to groups and individuals on
and off campus which called for the
University to cut all financial ties with
South Africa.
THOSE TIES, which include stocks
and bonds the University holds in cor-
porations which have South African
operations, help maintain apartheid -
the South African system of
segregation and discrimination, say the
" Senator Edward Kennedy says
he's "heartened, and encouraged"
by the response to his potential
presidential candidacy. See story,

" Treasury Secretary G. William.

Opponents of divestment contend
both that the University should avoid
taking moral or political stands and
that, more change can be achieved by
maintaining the investments to influen-
ce the corporations.
When they reviewed the first ad-
visory report in March 1978, the Regen-
ts adopted a policy that pro-divestment
groups, especially the Washtenaw
County Coalition Against Apartheid
(WCCAA), say achieves less than the
report recommended.
THAT FIRST document, as well as
another .released in June, were
prepared by the Senate Assembly Ad-
visory Committee for Financial Affairs
(SAACFA), which has been studying
the South African controversy on and
off since September of 1977.
In the June report, SAACFA referred
to its February 1978 document, saying,
"These (recommendations) represent
progressively stronger actions in the
support of corporate social respon-
sibility in South Africa."
However, divestment advocates say
they are still not satisfied with the ter-
ms of the report, and will continue to
protest the University's investment
policy until full divestment has been

There were dozens of similar ex-
changes in front of the Athletic Ad-
ministration Building early yester-
day afternoon, where demonstrators
from a women's rights group rallied
against the practice of "passing up"
women at Michigan Stadium. In the
end, however, it seemed the demon-
strators won out over the hecklers.
