No contest
The former director of University Hospital, Ed-
ward Connors, pleaded no contest Friday to one
charge of defrauding the University out of $407.
Connors resigned his $45,000 post last April, after
an extensive audit revealed he had improperly
billed the University for travel expenses. The of-
fense - obtaining money under false pretense
over $100 - carries a maximum penalty of eight
years in prison. Connors is currently free on $10,.-
000' personal recognizance bond. Sentencing has
been scheduled for Oct. 25. The Michigan Attorney
General's Office had charged Connors with eight
counts of obtaining money under false pretenses,
seven of them felonies. The seven criminal charges
are likely to be dropped.
Crime lin
A University law professor said it is ironic that
the recently reported 16 per cent national increase
in serious crime came during a "law and order"
administration which significantly expanded police
power. "This proves what criminologists have
maintained all along," said Prof. Yale Kamisar.
"The overall .crime rate is not significantly af-
fected by police or prosecution activities. "If police
track down in one city," he said, "this may chase
criminals to another city but it won't significantly
affect the nationwide crime rate." Kamisar, an
authority on criminal law, said the crime crisis
is noth~ng new for the nation, but the administra-
tion no longer has anyone to blame for it.
State unemployment
The unemployment rate in Michigan has drop-
ped below nine per cent for the first time in eight
monthis. The state Employment Security Commis-
sion said the jobless rate in September dropped
1.6 per cent from August - that's to 7.4 per cent.
Still, the state figure was considerably higher
than the 5.8 per cent national figure. Martin Tay-
lor, the employment agency director, attributed
the Michigan drop to three things - the return to
school of students and teachers, a recall of fur-
loughed auto workers to help produce new model
vehicles and a retail sales pickup after the sum-
mer. ,

Won't back Wallace

Southern Illinois University students. Asked to

PALO ALTO, CalS if. - Rallyin behind quarterback
Dennis Franklin for 21 second-half points, the Michigan
Wolverines overcame a three-point halftime deficit and
went on to their fourth straight victory of the season,
a 27-16 verdict over the Stanford Cardinals here yester-
day afternoon.
The Cardinals, now 0-3-1, were 18-point underdogs
against the third-ranked Wolverines, but took a 9-6 half-
time lead and closed within four points of the Maize and

dent Ford won cancellation yes-
terday of contracts by two ex-
porters to ship $500 million in
grain to the Soviet Union.
Press Secretary Ron Nessen
said the contracts were can-
celed at Ford's request lest
they boost American grocery
bills by aggravating a tight sup-
ply situation reflecting disap-
pointing harvest.
EARLIER yesterday, Agricul-
ture Secretary Earl Butz said
the grain deal had been halted
but not canceled.
Expressing dismay that the
Soviets gave no advance warn-
ing they planned massive pur-
chases of corn and wheat, Butz
said, "We wish they hadn't
done it."
Nessen announced that grain
exporters are being invited
here Monday "to help formu-
late a system of voluntary co-
operation and reporting that
will assure reasonable supplies

THE PRESS secretary said,
"It is anticipated that this vol-
untary cooperative effort will
enable the United States to
avoid the imnposition of general
export controls."
Ford, according to Nessen, ex-
pressed to the grain exporters
who had made deals with the
Soviets "his strong concern
over the potential domestic im-
pact that such sales could have
at a time when the United
States is experiencing a disap-
pointing harvest of feed grains."
Nessen said company repre-
sentatives who met with Ford
"evidenced their full willingness
to be responsive to these cruc-
ial domestic concerns" and add-
ed, "The two companies are
now making arrangement for
the cancellation of these con-
tracts, in accordance with the
government's request."
THE HALT on shipments of

91million bushels of corn and
34 million bushels of wheat was
negotiated at morning-long
White conferences with top of-
ficials of two major exporters,

York and Cook Industries, Inc.,

Meanwhile, Sen. Henry Jack-
son (D-Wash.), announced that
the Senate Permanent Investi-
gations Subcommittee which he
chairs will hold hearings Mon-
day on the grain-shipment halt.
He said executives from the
two grain companies and gov-
ernment officials would testify.

Following an exchange of
punts, the Wolverines iced the
game with a time-consuming 78-
yard march that took the starch
out of the Stanford defenders,
and killed the Cardinal upset
hopes by using up a good piece
of time.
Franklin, who played a slug-
gish first half, engineered a
classic "Schembechler grinder"
with soh'ie fine ball handling,
running, and even a pair of
clutch passes to split receiver
Jim. Smith.

Franklin handed to tailback
Rob Lytle on a simple dive off

Franklin rolled left on the next

Scott Corbin, a freshman
paying fullback in place of in-
jured Chuck Heater, dove for
three. But Lytle's sweep lost a
yard, and set up Michigan's
first ball-control play of the
drive: third and eight at the 36.
Franklin proved equal to the
task, hitting Smith for 11 yards.
Lytle then ran for three and on
the next play the Masillon Mar-
vel strutted down the line, and
darted forward for 11 yards,
gaining another first down at
the Stanford 39.
THE CLOCK and Stanford's
upset dreams kept ticking away
as two rushes netted Michigan
four yards before Franklin hit
Smith again, this time for 16
yards to the Card 17. Corbin
capped the drive three ground
plays later, with a two-yard
touchdown plunge.

igan than even the touchdown,
were the six-plus minutes the
Wolverines consumed, leaving

The agriculture chief indicat-
ed the administration has ga-
thered evidence the Soviets
were planning still other grain
purchases that presumably will
now be held in abeyance. Mos-
cow's contracts with Conti-
nental and Cook were signed
Thursday and Friday.
BUTZ SAID the Continental
and Cook deals "obviously
would have a buoyant effect on
prices" in the United States by
reducing already-tight supplies,
especially of corn.
He said an Agriculture De-
partment crop report next week
is expected to show the corn
harvest "downtmodestly"' from
lived up to original expecta-
tions. He said the corn crop has
suffered from a "triple wham-
my" of a wet spring, dry sum-
mner and early frosts.

Daniel Ellsberg and Jane Fonda echoed the same point last
night to a standing-room only audience at Rackham Auditorium:
The anti-war movement must not rest until "there is a real,

THE DUO'S PRESENT crusade is a campaign of Congres-
'N ,sional lobbying, and of urging people to contact their representa-
cut in aid to southeast Asia of fom $2.7 billionto $15 billion.
"We've been putting people in front of shopping centers to
ask shoppers to send telegrams to their Congressmen before
* crucial votes," said Ellsberg.
"We want people to write letters," added Fonda, "had there
