Wolverines grab win, 27-21, in inal seconds
By BILLY SAHN
Pity those who had their backs turned.
Pity .those, who, convinced of a 21-21 tie, did not witness a
miracle as they filed out of Michigan Stadium yesterday.
They missed perhaps one of
the most exciting moments in the uprights, enabling Indiana to retain

Paul Demarrais escorts his three
children through . the dimly lit
recreation room of Delta Chi fraternity..
He peers deliberately at the many
composite photographs of brothers
from years past on long, panelled walls.
Locating the 1956 composite, he scans
the 30 faces and turns to his young son
"Who's this, Quinn?" he asks, poin-
ting to a bespectled young man wearing,
an ear to ear smile.
HIS SON, barely old enough to speak,
stares at the photo for several seconds.
With a smile of his own, he replies
"And who is this?" Demarrais asks,
turning to a second face on the 1957

IT IS Homecoming at the Delta Chi
house. For the returning University
graduates-and some who didn't ac-
tually graduate-Homecoming is a day
of nostalgia, memories, and sentimen-
"We're 53'ers;" exclaimed alumnus
Bob Killenberger, referring to himself
and fellow Delta Chis Lyle Nelson and
Warren Scafe. "It's a lot of fun to come
back here and see the.guys, and to see
the house again."
"And to drink," chuckled Scafe.

The South Korean government con-
tinued to insist yesterday that
President Park Chung-hee's slaying by
his own intelligence chief was acciden-
tal. Officials also appealed for calm as
more than 12,000 soldiers were
stationed throughout Seoul to guard a
capital shaken by the killing.
As officials paid their respects at the
closed coffin holding Park's bullet-
riddled. body, the Korean people were
still unsure of just how or why their 62-
year-old strongman president was shot
to death Friday night.
THE GOVERNMENT said he was
shot by Korean Central Intelligence
Agency chief Kim Jae-kyu when Kim
began firing a pistol during a 'heated
argument at dinner. Park's chief
bodyguard and four other security men
also were killed.
Martial law was in effect, schools
were closed, and tanks surrounded the
capitol building as officials, grappled
with a crisis that has left South Korea
without an obvious successor to the
man who ruled with an iron fist for
more than 18 years.
Prime Minister Choi Kyu-hah, 60,
named acting president in an emergen-
cy Cabinet session four hours after
Park's death, went on nationwide radio
yesterday morning to ask for calm.
"THIS IS THE time for all 37 million
South Korean people to stay calm and
do their best to preserve the country for
our survival," he said.
Carter administration officials said
they had been told by South Korean
government sources recently that there
was growing dissatisfaction with
Park's regime. Park had recently im-
posed martial law in two southern cities
to subdue anti-government riots.
"All we can say for certain at this
point is' that it was at a dinner. It ap-
pears to have been an accident. I can't
say for sure in this case," Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance said in Gainesville,
South Korean forces were on
emergency alert yesterday against any
attempt by communist North Korea to
take advantage of the confused
situation, but U.S. officials said there
was no indication of military activity
north of the demilitarized zone. The
38,000 U.S. troops here were ordered in-
to the lowest stage of alert, just one step
up from normal status.
RUMORS AND speculation were
rampant yesterday that the killings
were part of an assassination plot.-
A number of important questions
remained unanswered more than 24
hours after the shooting death of
President Park Chung-hee:.
" Was the shooting accidental?
" Was Kim injured?
" What sort of gun was used? Reports

Father Coughlin, 'radio priest'
for millions in 30's, dies at 88
From UPI and AP
BLOOMFIELD HILLS - The arch-
conservative "radio priest" whose
vitriolic tongue swayed millions during
the depths of the depression,, the Rev.
Charles E. Coughlin, died at his Bloom-
,field home yesterday morning, two
days after his 88th birthday.
Coughlin had been bedridden at home
for several weeks after spending three
weeks in Pontiac's St. Joseph Mercy
Hospital last month.
A FUNERAL mass is scheduled for
Tuesday at the Shrine of the Little
Flower in Royal Oak, the church
Coughlin built from contributions sent
in by listeners and where he served as
pastor for 40 years.
At the height of his popularity, about
30 million people listened to Coughlin's
broadcasts and he became one of the
most controversial men in the United
States. His critics called him a,
demagogue, a racist, and an anti-
Semitic, fascist friend of Nazi Ger-
Coughlin broadcast from WJR in
Detroit from 1926 until 1929, when two
Chicago stations picked up his sermons.
Four years after his first radio talk he
was broadcasting over a network of 18
In 1931, the Columbia Broadcasting
System carried his voice to an
estimated 40 million persons on his
program, "The Golden Hour."
IN 1930, his programs took a drastic
turn away from religious topics.
Coughlin began attacking the Soviet
Union, labor unions, Jews, Wall Street,
and international bankers.
After one particularly scathing
broadcast, CBS accused Coughlin of
demagogic excesses and refused to
carry his programs any longer. So he
formed a private radio chain that even-
tually embraced 47 stations and an
audience of millions from coast-to-

Homecoming, Greek style
A long day for hoards of returnees and current University students, Homecoming, began with an early parade. Sigma
Phi's "Deathmobile" was one of a fleet of floats built by fraternities and sororities. Phi Delta Theta beat Sigma Alpha
Epsilon in the annual mudbowl, held at the corner of Washtenaw and South University streets. The alumni band
assisted the Marching Band with halftime duties at the football game, and the final Homecoming event was the Uni-
versity Activities Center-sponsored "Casino Night" at the Union.

they weren't going to take it anymore. After being attacked
by several violent visitors, the volunteers at the Police
Athletic League's haunted house in Cleveland decided to
walk off their jobs. Apparently the visitors at the 100-year-
old house were so frightened by the scary figures emerging
from dark corners and crevices that they began punching,
kicking, and tossing objects at the costumed actors. "Some
people who come through get so scared that they start reac-
ting until one of us gets hit," said Frank Lucas, an amateur
make-up artist who led the walkout. "But others come
