Jayhawks' wings, 28-7

6 -

By GEOFF LARCOM
It wasn't spectacular, nor,
was it impressive, and it was
hardly what Bo Schembechler
had hoped for coming off last
week's disheartening loss to'
Notre Dame.
In fact, the most charitable
thing that can be said of yester-
day's 28-7 victory over Kansas
is that it was a win, as the
Wolverines did only what they
absolutely had to on-offense in
handing the Jayhawks their
second straight loss of the
young season before an unen-
thusiastic Michigan Stadium
crowd of 103,698.
The Wolverines simply owned the
ball for most of the game, running 93 of-
fensive plays to Kansas' 51, in
amassing 467 yards in total offense
compared to the Jayhawks' meager 104
total.

THE CHIEF contributors here were
Stanley Edwards, who rushed for 106
yards out of his tailback slot, and John
Wangler, who entered the game at the
beginning of the second quarter and en-
ded up with credit for 195 of Michigan's
total of 220 yards through the air.
Ralph Clayton grabbed three passes
for 70 yards and tight end Doug Marsh
added three receptions for 38 yards.
Freshman Lawrence Ricks, who'd run
only two plays previously this year,
chipped in with 53 rushing yards, while
fullback Lawrence Reid rambled for 52.
But those stats weren't what Schem-
bechler was looking for, not when his
team had that many chances to execute
- and failed to come through so often.
"I ask you, was that a 28-7 game?"

Schembechler said incredulously.
"Ninety-three offensive plays and we
get four touchdowns. That's ridiculous.
We're making mistakes a Michigan
team should not make. In a game like
this, we should be dominant."
TO A CERTAIN extent, the
Wolverines were. There seemed little
doubt that Kansas was not the team to
take advantage of the Wolverines' of-
fensive slumber, with Michigan's near-
invincible defense virtually suffocating
the Jayhawks' pass-oriented offense
throughout.
But what irked Schembechler most
was that there should have been much
more. Freshman Ali Haji-Sheikh
missed two 42-yard field goals, one each
in the first and fourth auarters. Along

with that, the Wolverines were inter-
cepted once and lost the ball twice on
fumbles in the backfield, caused by
Jayhawk defenders blowing in and
knocking the ball loose from the Blue
quarterback.
Meanwhile,, the best the Jayhawks
could manage was fleet-footed safety
Leroy Irvin's 60-yard punt return in the
opening minutes of the second quarter.
After Michigan had stalled at its own
23, Bryan Virgil booted a line drive
which Irvin gathered in at his own for-
ty. He broke to the right sideline and
pranced untouched into the north end.
zone for the only Kansas score of the
day. Mike Hubach converted to make

being hit by an onrushing Kansas lineman during yesterday's 28-7 Wol-

GEO-University stuggle goes
on, even after all these years

By NICK KATSARELAS
February, 1975. The biting winter
wind slices the campus. Despite the
chilling temperatures, groups of people
march in front of the Modern Language
Building. And Angell Hall. And the
Chemistry Building. And 25 other
buildings. The protest was organized.
So organized in fact, the strikers suc-
ceeded in closing many courses for one
month, a feat only a blizzard has ever
managed to do.
The strikers were the Graduate Em-
ployees Organization (GEO). At the
time, it was a viable political force on
campus with over 700 actively par-
ticipating in the strike. GEO had wide-
ranging student support, and succeeded
in obtaining many of its demands from
the University.
BUT THAT was° four and one-half
years ago. Now, GEO has a significan-
tly lower membership. So low, that only
75 members voted for officers in its last
election. Student awareness of the
problems between the union and the
University is minimal, and most of the
student body doesn't even know what
"GEO" stands for.
The University and GEO are curren-
tly engaged in a court battle to deter-
mine whether union members are em-
ployees, with the right to bargain
collectively, or just students.
GEO President Greg Scott says he is
confident the ruling will be in the
union's favor. But GEO still has major
problems. Its members have been
working without a contract for over
three years. It is without any of the
provisions contained in the one and only

contract, including an important clause
concerning agency shop. There also
: appears to be a major drop in GEO
membership.
Scott said the peak membership was
about 1,200 several months after the
strike - a figure attributed to a firm
belief in GEO's effectiveness.
SCOTT ESTIMATES there are ap-

The victory climaxed a long effort by
GSAs - student, research, and
teaching assistants - to organize a
union which began in 1971.
AFTER GEO'S official certification
as the bargaining agent for campus
GSAs, the union quickly resumed its
battle with the University. It demanded
wage increases, lower class size,

THE MICHIGAN DEFENSIVE WALL caves in on Kansas quarterback Kevin Clinton, but the Jayhawk passer unloads
his aerial under the gun yesterday at Michigan Stadium. Clinton, whose rifle-like arm concerned the Michigan coach-
ing staff, completed only 6 of 21 passes for 28 yards, as the Wolverines rolled to a 28-7 victory.
PASSIN( UP CONTINUES DESPITE PLE AS:

proximately 400 GEO members now,
although only 25 people showed up at its
first meeting of the year held two weeks
ago. Although Scott said the size of
union was disappointing, he said he is
optimistic about the ability of GEO to
continue its drive for full recognition to
build a stronger labor organization.
GEO became the official bargaining
unit for all Graduate Student Assistants
(GSA's) in April, 1974, following a vote
of GSAs sanctioned by the Michigan
Employee - Relations Commission
(MERC), and since then, its relation-
ship with the administration has been,
at best, tenuous.

greater curriculum input, and an end to
alleged racial and sexual
discrimination by the University.
Negotiators for both sides bargained
for eight months. A MERC-appointed
mediator was called in, and GEO of-
fered to go into binding arbitration, an
offer the administration declined. After
efforts to avert a strike, 700 union
members walked out on February 12,
1975.
Class attendance was cut in half the
first day of the strike and about 200
students joined GSAs on the picket
lines. The first week of the strike

Women injured

Incidents of passing up women
increased markedly at yesterday's
University football game after the
stadium announcer asked fans to stop
the practice, many spectators reported.
Two women were treated and
released at University Hospital after
being injured as a'result of the practice,
according to a hospital spokeswoman.
She would not say how serious the in-
juries were or release the names of

those hospitalized.
HOWARD KING, stadium public ad-
dress announcer, said he met with
Athletic Director Don Canham and
Sports Information Director Will Perry
before the game, and decided not to
make an announcement condemning
passing up unless he noticed the ac-
tivity.
"You take something of a risk in
pushing too hard," said King. He said
he made the announcement in the third
quarter, and noticed that the passing up

atgame,
didn't stop. After he called a play, King,
* then said he reworded the announ-
cement asking that the passing up be
discontinued.
King called the injuries "most uufor-
tunate" and said that Canhm had been
"especially concerned."
Perry said he knew nothing about the
passing up incidents.
Several observers said women were
being passed up in "assembly line"
style after King's initial announcement.
One said ten women were being pissed
up at one point.

28, beer
brands you
won't want
to guzzle

WASHINGTON (UPI)-Test results just released by
the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) show at least 28
beers have traces of cancer-causing nitrosamines, with
Schlitz leading the list.
The test, made public late last week, showed 17 domestic
and 11 imported beers contain detactable levels of the con-
taminants.
The highest reading for an American beer-7.7 parts per
billion (ppb)-was found in Schlitz. The lowest-no detac-
table level-was Coors, with Stroh's a close second.
THE HIGHEST reading among imports-3.6 ppb-was
found in a Heineken sample. Low among the imports was
Guiness Stout, with no detectable level.

Both the FDA and the brewing industry have said they
are confident the nitrosamines can be eliminated through
changes in the brewing process, and they expect a clean-up
within a few months.
The FDA also hassaid the amount of nitrosamines in beer
is small enough that-based on what the agency knows
now-there is no reason for moderate beer drinkers to
change their habits'.
FDA RELEASED the latest test results-from studies
made last spring-after it got several requests citing the
Freedom of Information Act.
Among those seeking the results was the Center for
Science in the Public Interest, which has asked the FDA

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
movement to draft Sen. Edward Ken-

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP)
-Authorities waited for word yester-
day from gunmen who kidnapped two
U.S. businessmen in a bloody highway
ambush outside San Salvador. Leftist
insurgents continued their hit-and-run
war against the government, and six
were reported killed in attacks on
national guard posts.
Police said they believed the abduc-
tion, in which the businessmen's
bodyguard was killed, was related to
the recent anti-government violence.
Americans and other foreigners have
been the targets of leftist attacks in the
past.
DENNIS McDONALD, general
manager of Apler of El Salvador, sub-
sidiary of California-based Beckman
Instruments, and his co-worker Fausto
Buchelli, a Puerto Rican, were am-
bushed Friday evening as they drove
from their factory toward San
Salvador, six miles away, police said.

and several casualties were reported.
THE REBELS had promised a
"black Septengber" in their campaign
to topple the military government of
Carlos Humberto Romero and install a
Marxist government to replace the
small elite that controls this Central
Ameican nation of 3.5 million people.
Yesterday's clashes at guard posts
outside San Salvador were the latest in
a series of attacks in the past 24 hours,
according to government officials.
They said four guerrillas were killed
in fighting at Panchimalco, a town
seven miles southeast of San Salvador,
and two guerrillas were killed in
fighting at Apopo, 12 miles north of San
Salvador.
