Unless disaster strikes and a
halfback breaks his leg in the
shower tomorrow morning or a
quarterback electrocutes himself
while turning on the tube to watch
the Perils of Penelope Pitstop, Bo
Schembechler's biggest question
will happily not be answered this
week.
' That question concerns the
Wolverine football squad's ability
to play over injuries due to its lack
of depth, but unless one of the
aforementioned disasters occurs
Michigan will go into its season
opener tomorrow against Arizona
with most of its parts in working
order.

Some components, however, will
be missing. Foremost among these
is defensive back Bruce Elliott,
who is out with a shoulder separa-
tion, and will probably miss more
games than tomorrow's opener.
Tackle Fred Grambau will also
almost certainly be a spectator to-
morrow due to his knee injury. His
cast will be i'emove.d today to see
how his leg is, but it is not ex-
pected that he will play.
Other squad members, while not
as seriously injured as Elliott or
Grambau, are in various stages of
recovery. Wingback Greg Har-'
rison is still suffering from an
ankle sprain and will not play.
John Daniels is yet afflicted with
a knee injury and is doubtful while

tackle Jim Coode is closer to re-
covery but will also be held out.
Jerry Dutcher, who has been ham-
pered with a bruised blood vessel
in his arm, has practiced all week
and hopefully will play.
It was feared Wednesday that
placekicker Tim Killian had re-
injured the back which hampered
him last season but his difficulty
'was later diagnosed as only a
muscle spasm and he will be at
full strength tomorrow.
AT THIS POINT Schembechler
doesn't seem as worried about the
injuries as he had been. He de-
scribes the mishaps to Elliott and
Grambau as "a couple of injuries
that will hurt us," but classifies
the rest as "quite a few nagging
injuries that are annoying to us
right now." He does, however,
caution that these "could become
critical if we lose anyone during
the game."
The most vulnerable area is thej
defensive backfield, which will be'
missing both Elliott and Daniels.
Bill Haslett will be available for
reserve duty and will be joined bysr
Dutcherdif he is ready. Elliott s
absence means that Schembechler=
will start a sophomore, Bo Rather,
on his first string. Rather will be
the only soph in the starting line-'
up.

primarily a group of newcomers to
man the defense. The key men in
the renovated defense are hold-
overs tackle Tody Smith, end
Charley Weaver, and linebacker
Greg Slough.
THE TROJAN DEFENSE was
able to hold Alabama to 32 yards
total rushing last week, but they
gave up 232 yards in the air. The
defense will keep a special eye on
Nebraska's Joe Orduna this -week-
end. Orduna, who missed all of
last year with a bad knee is in good
form after gaining 52 yards in ten
carries last week against Wake
Forest.
Nebraska alternated their start-
ing quarterbacks last year, not
because they did not have a good
one, but because they had two very

back, Van Brownson is out indefi-
nitely with a shoulder injury.
The Nebraska defense, which
was the big questionmark before
the season, is still unproven after
yielding 12 points to Wake Forest.
While they held the Foresters to
84 yards on the ground, the Husk-
ers were penetrated constantly
through the air.
Both coaches are wary of their
opposition. Nebraska coach Bob
Devaney says that "USC may-be
the best team we've ever faced
since coming to Nebraska." Mc-
Kay calls the Huskers "one of the
better teams in the country."
Although the Trojans are fa-
vored in Saturday's game, the
Cornhuskers, with the second best
record in college football over the
last eight years, are out to test
the prognosticators' accuracy.

PROTEST BYU RACISM

WMU students boyc

By JIM KEVRA
In a move against the alleged-
ly racist policies of the Mormon
Church, a significant segment of
Western Michigan University's
student body may boycott tomor-
row's football game against Brig-,
ham Young University, an affil-'
iate of the Mormon Church. The
Boycott was called for' by West-
en's Associated StudentGovern-
ment (made up of the Student
Senate and the Student Govern-
ment Council) and took the form
of a resolution asking all students
not to attend the game.
Tom Fehniger, head of the Stu-
dent Senate at WMU said that, in
addition to the boycott, "Most
of the black players and some of
the white players will be wearing
black armbands during the game
to show their support (for t h e
boycott) ". Last year, fourteen
black players from Wyoming were
dismissed from the squad after4
wearing black armbands in 'a
meeting with the coach to discuss[
the policies of Brigham Young
University.
Western's sports information
director John Beatty, doubts that
that type of showdown between

the athletic department and the
players would occur at Kalama-
zoo. "It's just one of those things
*here you really don't know about
it until it happens", he explain-
ed.
Brigham Young University has
been the target.of numerous de-
monstrations in recent years be-
cause of the tenets of the Mormon
Church which prevents Blacks
from being part of the Mormon
clergy.
Last season,~a number of San
Jose State players wore armbands
during their game against Brig-
ham Young. Two years ago, sev-
en black San Jose State gridders
refused to participate in the Brig-
ham Young game.
THE RESOLUTION passed by
the student senate read in part:
WHEREAS racism is a primary'
problem in the c o u n t r y
today,

1ott game
integrity of Western Michi-i
gan University's student gov-k
ernment;
BE IT RESOLVED THAT the
Student Senate endorses a;
boycott of this Saturday's
football game against Brig-
ham Young University.
The resolution passed the Stu-
dent Senate last week by a wide
margin and was also signed by the
president of Western's Student
Government Council, the other
half of the Associated Student
Government.
Last spring, the WMU athletic!
department announced that the
football contract with Brigham
Young, which expires after this
season,' would not be renewed be-
cause the basic tenets of Brigham
Young University are contrary toE
the non-discriminatory policies of
Western Michigan University.

Eight last season, is the number 9
team in the AP poll.
The teams met last year in Lin-k
coin, with the Trojans winning c
31-21 on their way to a 10-0-1
season and a Rose Bowl victory
over Michigan. The Cornhuskers,
who crushed Georgia 45-6 in last;
year's Sun Bowl, finished the year
with a 9-2 record.
Both teams started this season
off in an impressive manner last~
week, USC trouncing Alabama 42-
21, and Nebraska routing Wake
Forest 36-12.
In their annihilation of Ala-
bama, USC was' led by junior
quarterback Jimmy Jones, who di-
rected the offense to a ground
game that amassed 485 yards
rushing. The Trojans passing at-I
tack was somewhat less ferocious,
with Jones hitting on only 5 of 15}
passes for one touchdown.;
THE BIG MAN in the Trojan
running attack was sophomore
sensation Sam Cunningham, who
gained 135 yards in 11 carries, for
an average of over 12 yards a try.
In all, USC boasted six men who
gained 50 yards or more against
the Alabama defense.
Cunningham, who did not start
last game and will not start
against Nebraska, appears to be
the top bench man in the USC
backfield. Starting ahead of him
are last year's starters, tailback
Clarence Davis and fullback Char-
lie Evans. Also in the backfield is
All-America candidate flanker
Bob Chandler, called by some the
best player on USC.
Aside from the four lettermen
returning to the backfield, USC
has only 12 other returning letter-
men on the entire squad. The of-
fensive line, the most obvious
