Ypsi robbers
The FBI announced yesterday that it has ex-
panded its search for four men who forced an
Ypsilanti bank manager to rob his own bank last
Thursday in a dramatic kidnapping-robbery epi-
sode. Richard Green, manager of the Ypsilanti
Savings Bank Branch was forced to empty the
bank's vault of an estimated $35,000 after he was
held at gunpoint with his wife and two children
for over 12 hours. Nearly 70 federal agents and
troopers used a helicopter and tracking dogs to
scour the southeastern Michigan countryside for
the men who authorities describe as "cool and

Little green men
It was Orson Welles' broadcast of "War of the
Worlds" all over again. Newspaper and radio
station switchboards lit up from Pensacola to
Miami 'as Floridians checked out Friday's radio
broadcasts reporting that two spaceships were
being hidden in, of all places, Wright-Patterson Air
Force Base. The source, it turned out, was a 20-
year-old flying saucer story. Robert Carr, a former
Hollywood screen writer promoting a Flying Saucer
Symposium, repeated information published twenty
years ago during a broadcast. The report included
details on the bodies of 12 little spacemen who
were allegedly being deep-frozen at Ohio's military
base. It was later vigorously denied.

Unicorn hunting
More twisted goings-on: In Sault Ste. Marie, the
one-week season for unicorn hunting is over, and
unicorn hunters have pronounced it a smashing
success. Oddly, though, not one unicorn was taken.
William Rabe, architect of the Lake Superior State
College Unicorn Hunters, explained the apparent
contradiction: "It's been a very successful season
because no one was actually reported taking a
unicorn." Rabe reports that there have been "liter-
ally thousands" of sightings reported from Aus-
tralia to Jamaica. "And the number of sightings
seems to increase in direct proportion to the
lateness of the hour," he added. The Lake Superior
State College Unicorn Hunters have issued 5,000
unicorn hunting licenses in past years.

Bo's boys spank partans, 21-7

The Michigan W o 1 v e r i n e s used a reliable
Schembechlerian combination-tough defense and
exploitation of timely turnovers-to grind out a
21-7 victory over the arch-rivals Spartans from
Michigan State University (MSU), before a damp
crowd of 104,682 at Michigan Stadium yesterday.
In a drizzly, irritating rain, Michigan scored at
both ends of the first half, and somewhere in
between, defenseman Dan Jilek cuddled a Spar-
tan fumble in the end zone to round out the
home team scoring. That was all the Wolverines
needed to beat MSU for the fifth straight year--
and stretch this season's tally to 5-0.
THE WOLVERINE offense, hampered by the
rain and the third-quarter loss of quarterback
Dennis Franklin, showed little spark, but the
Spartans could only manage a lonely fourth-
quarter touchdown against a spirited Blue de-
"Anytime you win 21-7 in an emotional game
like this, it's a big win," said Michigan coach
Bo Schembechler later. "I was very disappointed
with our offense in the second half. I don't

blame the kids, I blame myself. We should
have run right at them."
Michigan used the ground game exclusively
to score the game's first touchdown, driving 48
yards after a Spartan punt.
TAILBACK Gordon Bell took a pitch from
quarterback Dennis Franklin and tiptoed 10
yards around right end for the first touchdown.
Bell carried five times for 29 yards in the nine-
play drive, and tackle Jim Hall fell on a Franklin
fumble at the MSU 25 to keep the march alive.
The teams exchanged a punt and a fumble
each, and MSU blew an attempted field goal
before Michigan scored again in the second
MSU was forced to punt from its own 21 yard
line, but the pass from center bounced to punter
Tom Birney. Michigan ends Dan Jilek and Mike
Holmes hit Birney at the 5, and the ball squirted
loose into the end zone where Jilek recovered

for a Michigan touchdown.
MIKE LANTRY'S second conversion kick gave
Michigan a 14-0 lead.
Michigan gained possession at its own 35 with
less than 1 minutes to play in the half, and
an unusual MSU defensive error gave the Wol-
verines their third touchdown.
Franklin put Michigan in field goal range,
hitting Gil Chapman with a 17-yard aerial to
MSU's 32. But Spartan defensive end Otto Smith
sacked Franklin at the State 44 on the next play,
blunting any chance for a Lantry field goal.
SCHEMBECHLER elected to go for the touch-
down, and Franklin hit split end Jim Smith, all
alone at the MSU goal line, as the half's final
five seconds ticked off the stadium clock.

fense diagrammed on the blackboard," Stolz
said. "We just didn't play it well."
MICHIGAN collected only three first downs
in the entire second half, with two in the game's
final minute, as the Spartan defense tightened
and completely shut off the Wolverines.
Schembechler blamed "bad coaching on my
part" for the offensive collapse, adding, "I
didn't give the team the opportunity to score."
"We just couldn't get together a good drive,"
sighed Franklin. "Maybe we didn't run as much
inside as we usually do, but we just did't
WHILE THERE was no word last night on the
results of X-rays on Franklin taken later at
University Hospital, the injury was apparently
very slight.
The victory did not come easily, but the Wol-
verines "were looking for a tough game" accord-
ing to defensive tackle Greg Morton.
"Bo always tells us to play like this is the last
game," Morton said. "We were really up for

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - Watergate special pro-
secutor Leon Jaworski yesterday announced he is resign-
ing - only a day after the jury was sworn in for the
Watergate cover-up trial.
In a letter to Attorney General William Saxbe, Ja-
worski said that since the trial of five one-time aides to
former President Nixon is about to begin, the remaining
investigations could be directed by another special prose-
JAWORSKI emphasized that his resignation - effective
October 25 - was in no way connected with the controversial
pardon President Ford granted Mr. Nixon last month.
Jaworski told the attorney
general: "In view of suggestions
that an indictment be returned hLt
against former President Rich-
ard Nixon questioning the valid-
ity of the pardon granted him,
I think it proper that I ... dis-
pel any thought that there may
be some relation between my
resignation and that issue."
He said there was nothing in-f
the special prosecutor's charter
or guidelines to impair or cur-
tail the President's free exer-
cise of the right to pardon.
TO SECURE an indictment
of Mr. Nixon for his part in the
Watergate scandal solely to test4
the legality of the pardon would
be spurious, unprofessional and
a violation of his responsibility,
Jaworski said.
Jaworski was appointed spe-
cial prosecutor 11 months ago
after his predecessor, Archibald Jaworski
Cox, was fired by Nixon for
challenging him on the release of tape recordings of White House
conversations relating to the Watergate scandal
In what became known as the "Saturday Night Massacre," at-
torney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy William Ruckels
haus quit the Nixon administration rather than carry out his
orders to dismiss Cox.
Jaworski, a 69-year-old Houston lawyer, had been expected
to resign as special prosecutor once the jury was picked for the
trial of five former Nixon aides charged with sonspiring to conceal
top-level involvement in the Watergate scandal: the break-in at
the Democratic party's Watergate office block headquarters in
June, 1972.

Because the courtroom testi-

WITNESSES such as former
White House counsel John Dean,
whose credibility has been an
issue, would ordinarily be
troublesome additions to the
prosecution's case.
But when augmented by Nix-

President discusses on tape
events about which Dean testi-
fies, the tapes become a kind
of check and balance, a second

method for the jury to decide
if they believe Dean's testimony.
While Nixon was resting his
phlebitis-stricken left leg at his

Calif., last week, hundreds of

Of course, it is not publicly

largely middle-aged, middle
class, and female-believe it is
unfair to prosecute some of
Nixon's closest former aides,
while the ex-president goes free.

stacked jury was severe enough

Three black gunmen took over

a white security guard dead.
Pleading on the air for a "black
