Reuther gains
Democrat John Reuther has increased his 81
vote lead over 21d Congressional District rival
Dr. Edward Pierce by 50 votes as the recount
of the Aug 6 party primary continues. Although
Pierce gained five votes in Washtenaw county,
he lost 27 in Monroe county with Reuther picking
up 28 votes. Even Pierce is admitting that chances
of victory don't look good, but is waiting for the
final returns from Wayne County before he gives
up. Pierce and Reuther have been campaigning
jointly, ever since Pierce demanded a recount in
the close race.

Nixon's health
Air Force Maj. Gen. Walter Tkach said yester-
day he decided against hospitalizing Richard
Nixon after the former President told him, "If
I go into the hospital, I'll never come out live."
He did not say why Nixon feared he would die if
hospitalized. Tkach, Nixon's long-time personal
physician, was interviewed by NBC News at his
home at Andrews Air Force Base near Washing-
ton after he returned from a visit to his patient
at San Clemente, Calif. "Mr. Nixon's condition
has worsened in the past several weeks despite
the pardon," Tkach said ,and he "is a ravaged
man who has lost the will to fight."
World recession?
The possibility of a world-wide recession is not
being ruled out by senior officials of the industrial

countries, the International Monetary Fund warn-
ed yesterday. The warning is contained in the
annual report of the 126-nation agency, whose role
in monitoring world money markets has recently
been strengthened by its member governments.
It is not presented as the most likely result of
the current global bout of serious inflation, fall-
ing output and the 400 per cent rise in oil prices
over the past year, but the agency emphasizes:
"The unprecedented combination of circumstanc-
es . . . calls for international cooperation of a
quality rarely achieved in the past." It continues
that without such cooperation a combination of
such policies as competitive currency devaluations
and trade restrictions could cause an international

Franklin ll; Elzinga

There is a certain inevitability about Michigan foot-
ball games. Yesterday's 24-7 victory over Iowa was no
As surely as Hoover Street runs east and west, an-

The game had the potential for suspense. Quarterback Dennis
Franklin was laid low by a virus and did not suit up for the game,

football of any sort in his two years at Michigan.

were supposed to be coming in
charged with enthusiasm, hop-
ing to prove that they had im-
proved from their 0-11 mark of
the season before.
Though all this may have
changed the point spread, it had
no effect on the final outcome.
Michigan pounded the Hawk-
eyes, and did it with an over-
whelming display of running
and defense.
BUT EVEN ON their first at-
tempt Iowa learned that it was
foolish to attempt a power run-
ning attack against Michigan.
None of five rushes went for
more than two yards, and even
after a Rob Fick to Brandt Yo-
coim pass netted a first down,
the Hawks were forced to punt.
With that the game for all
practical purposes, was over.
Elzinga, though no Franklin,
was more than capable as a
narterback. Although his pass-
ing was ineffective, he was
nearly flawless as a director of
th-" Michigan attack.
St=)rting at theirkown 29, the
Wolverines moved to the Hawk-

sonhomore tailback Rob Lytle.
On the next play, wingback Gil

of what is to come in the second
