Blocked punt fatal in
18-15 Blue defeat
It wasn't just another blocked kick.
It wasn't just another chapter in the disheartening tale of
Michigan's kicking game during this 1979 season.
Early in the fourth quarter, Ohio State blocked a Michigan
punt and ran it in for the winning touchdown in yesterday's 18-15
Buckeye victory at Michigan Stadium. The Wolverines finished
the painful season with an 8-3
record, their worst mark in ten Michigan's lowest output this season.

Commerce nominee:
U.S. must use might

Copyright 1979, The Michigan Daily
Philip Klutznick, nominated by
President Carter as Secretary of Com-
merce, said last night the United States
must exercise its "competitive muscle
in the economic struggle for markets"
to control inflation.
In Klutznick's first private in-depth
interview since his nomination was an-
nounced Friday, the Chicago real
estate developer told the Daily he wants
to "exploit the tools" of the Cabinet post
to boost the nation's economy which, he
said, is facing new problems..
"THIS IS not 1946. The kind of in-
flation that we are experiencing is
somewhat unique in our mode of
history," said the 72-year-old financier
and prominent American Jewish
leader. "Much of it is attributable to
events beyond our shores."
Klutznick would succeed Juanita
Kreps in the Cabinet post, becoming the
nation's 26th Secretary of Commerce, if
confirmed by the Senate.
Klutznick urged an expanded U.S.
export program and increased invest-
ments in research and development so
the nation can regain its competitive
edge. In addition, the noninee said

afternoon knew the Wolverines were
headed for a win.
Bob Lauzon, a Detorit resident and
self-proclaimed "old fanatic," knew.
"The only trouble that they have is that
they make mistakes. If they don't make
mistakes, they'll win," Lauzon said of
his team as he marched toward the
EVEN AS the fourth quarter drew to
a suspensful close, Arlyn Afremow
knew. With Michigan down by three
points, the LSA sophomore said, "I'm
quite confident that the Wolverines will
still emerge victorious."
And on her way out of the arena after
the loss, sophomore Debbie Calenoff
comforted herself with the thought of
future victories. "There's always next
Next year perhaps, but the fact
remains that the Wolverines lost to that
team from Ohio. It had been three
years since a Buckeye crossed the
Wolverine goal line and three years
since Ohio had tasted Wolverine blood.
The future may hold some promise and
some roses for the Wolverine faithful.
This year, fans saw roses right up to
the gun.
Adrenalin and alcohol began flowing
before the game, but attention focused
on the buying and selling of tickets.
Another source of interest was football
ONE OF THE most sought after
items was a scarlet and grey button
which announced: "Ohio State Sucks."
According to LSA freshman Ed
Fleckstein, a vendor displaying about
20 buttons on his chest, he and two other
sold 1,500 of the buttons throughout the
The fact that Woody Hayes is no
longer coaching the Buckeyes didn't
seem to lessen the intense rivalry bet-
ween Ann Arbor and Columbus fans.
"It's the spirit of the schools that
creates the rivalry," said Craig Spolt-


man, a Coldwater, Ohio resident.
Spirited fans displayed their loyalty
throughout the game. Many plays were
preceded by the chanting of the fight
song and each Blue touchdown met
thundering applaqse, screams, and
showers of toilet paer rolls.
Onced vigorous quarrels over seats
subsided, fans concentrated on the
game intensely. The scarlet and grey
loyalists, sprinkled through student
sections, traded jibes throughout the
game on coaching and even the respec-
tive bands. Hundreds of bleacher
coaches shouted directions to Michigan
Coach Bo Schembechler that were lost
in the din.
But the Buckeye loyalists, tasting
victory and a long-awaited trip to the
Rose Bowl, rushed the field with three
seconds left on the clock. And as
Buckeye quarterback Art Schlichter
ran out the clock, thousands of stunned
Wolverine fans were left to ponder a
heart-breaking defeat.

As it turned out, the game result
bore no difference on the Big Ten Rose
Bowl roulette. Purdue's 37-21 win over
Indian left Michigan out of the running
for a trip to Pasadena, win or lose. The
Buckeyes (11-0) will now go west for the
first time in four years. Purdue (9-2),
meanwhile, will head to Houston for a
New Year's Eve date in the Astro-
Bluebonnet Bowl.
The Wolverine kicking mishap oc-
curred early in the fourth quarter. With
Michigan clinging onto a 15-12 lead,
Virgil set up to punt on fourth and eight
at the Michigan 38.
The snap was good, but the wall of
blockers in front of the Blue punter
collapsed. Buckeye outside linebackers
Jim Laughlin and Ben Lee charged in
and got to the slow-kicking Virgil on his
second step. Rover Todd Bell scooped
up the loose ball at the 18-yard line and
scampered into the end zone to seal the
Wolverines' fate.
"That one play, the blocked kick, was
absolutely ridiculous," said an in-
furiated Bo Schembechler after the
game. "I can't pinpoint, where the
breakdown was. It's not a one man
deal; I'm not trying to criticize one
man. And I'm not trying to blame the
guy who coaches it-me."
"The blocked punt was a big part of
our success today," said first year Ohio
State coach Earle Bruce. "We were
going after it-we rushed ten men on
that punt. It most certainly was a
critical play. Our defense in the past
has been able to rise to the occasion."
The Buckeye defense certainly did
the job yesterday as they held the
Wolverines to 298 total yards,

to free
By Reuter, AP, and UPI
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini
yesterday directed Moslem militants to
free black and women hostages in the
U.S. Embassy but ordered all white
American men - whom he called
"skilled spies" - kept captive until the
shah is returned to Iran.
In explaining the move, Khomeini
said the women would be freed because
of their "special rights" under Moslem
law and the blacks because they had
"probably been forced" to come to Iran
because of American "tyranny."
THE STUDENTS, in a message
broadcast over the official radio
station, said that they would carry out
the ayatollah's orders, but gave no time
for the release.
However, a student leader at the em-
bassy told Reuters by telephone that he
expected the women and blacks to be
released today. "We have to investigate
their records and files first," he said.

'U' planners seek funds

Over at the University's office of
Hospital Planning, Research, and
Development, there is a large "game
board" - a three-dimensional map of
the University Hospital medical com-
plex on the hill overlooking the Huron
Planning staffer Joseph Diederich
last month moved colored blocks
around on the game board, as he ex-
plained the different stages of planning
a new University Hospital, a project
estimated to cost $210 million.
LAST MONTH'S briefing on hospital
planning closely followed approval of
the University's plans by the state
Department of Public Health, which
pressed the University to cut about $44
million from the cost of the project.

"A lot of people think we are going to
get $210 million laid on the table in front
of us in the next two months,"
Diederich said at the briefing in early
But his briefing showed that the hard-
won approval from the Department of
Public Health was only the first of two
hurdles the University must clear
before breaking ground on the $210
million project.
Getting money for the project from
the state legislature is the second hur-
BECAUSE OF its immense size and
complexity, University officials must
go to the state legislature several times
to ask for money for the project.
The first chunk of money, $2 million,
will fund a design stage called
"blocks." In "blocks," the various

departments to be included in the new
hospital are allotted a number of
square feet, and then are treated in the
architectural decision-making . as
blocks of space.
With the help of the big game board,
Diederich explained how hospital plan-
ners, with the help of consultant ar-
chitect Albert Kahn, will move the
blocks around on the three possible
sites on the hill. Each block represents
three to four acres.
THE "BLOCKS" stage is a six-month
process during which the planners will
weigh factors such as the density per
acre for each site, the building's impact
on city utilities, and how best to move
traffic to the hospital.
As an example of how the size of the
