Blue cagers




Wolverines nip Iowa,


After leading by as much as 19 points,
the Michigan cagers fought off a
gradual Iowa surge and held on to a
rugged 82-76 Big Ten victory. The
Wolverines' post season hopes
remained alive with the win.
"That keeps us in position now. We
play Minnesota and Northwestern.
We've still got a chance. We'll certainly
get a bid somewhere if we win those two
games," Michigan coach Johnny Orr
MICHIGAN led at halftime by 15
points only to see the lead slowly melt
away. With 7:09 remaining in the game,
freshman Steve Waite snatched an of-
fensive rebound and put the ball
through to tie the game at 64.
Following a Michigan time-out,
junior Tom Norman sank a long jumper
at 6:37 to give the Hawkeyes the lead
for the only time of the game. The
teams were tied five times afterwards,
until a Dave Baxter pass deflected off
of Tom Bergen's hands to Mike McGee,
who hit pn a short jumper. The bucket
came with 1:14 left and put Michigan
ahead for good.
"We got ahdad of them and then we
kind of let down. I don't know what we
were thinking about, maybe that we

were 15 points ahead," said Orr.
"IT'S NOT really tough (to lose a
lead) when your offense is not clicking.
Ours wasn't, and they took advantage
of it," Alan Hardy said. "You have a
lead, so you're not trying to come back.
You don't have that to go for.'
The Wolverine letdown became
evident right at the start of the second
half, as the Hawkeyes outscored

Michigan 10-4 in the first three minutes.
The momentum had switched enough
for Orr to call a time-out.
"I was embarrassed and I think the
kids were embarrassed with their per-'
formance in the first half," Iowa coach
Lute Olson said. "At halftime we just
appealed to their pride and dignity. I
said, 'Don't embarrass yourselves'."

federal cuts with Pursell

While much of Ann Arbor was still sleeping yesterday, a
group of 35 or so nursing students discussed proposed drastic
cut-backs of federal aid to each of the nation's nursing
schools with Congressman Carl Pursell.
Under President Carter's proposed federal budget for
fiscal year 1979, federal aid to nursing programs would be
reduced by 80 per cent from this year's $125,000,000. The
proposed budget is still in committee, according to Pursell.
AT THE NINE o'clock meeting - one of Pursell's weekly
"town hall" meetings - the nurses demanded Pursell work
in Washington to restore the budget.
"I personally support the restoration," Pursell told the
nurses."I am as shocked as you are."
Pursell said he had discussed the issue with a few of his
colleagues in Washington and thinks there "is tremendous
amount of clout for restoration."

irrational decision," he said. "In my ten years of public life, I
have never known a cut of this magnitude to be carried out in
one year. "
The cuts eliminate all federally financed lopns and scholar-
ships to nursing students. The proposed cuts also end general
federal support for the nursing programs entirely.
Norma Marshall, the assistant dean of the nursing school
claims the budget changes will have "tremendous impact"
on the University's undergraduate nursing program. Mar-

THE NURSING SCHOOL is looking to the state gover-

Ruth Carey, an assistant nursing professor is worried
about losing her job. When asked, she said, "I don't have
tenure if that's what you mean."
Marshall also claims there is a shortage o( nurses in

Special to the Daily
DETROIT-With cries of "Save the
seals! Stop the slaughter!" 75 mar-
chers battled the cold yesterday after-
noon in Kennedy Square to protest the
Canadian government's annual harp
seal hunt.
The Canadian government allows the
'killing of 180,000 harp seal pups each
year. The seal pups are killed for their
THE PROTESTERS, representing
Greenpeace (an international
organization dedicated to helping
marine mammals), hope to influence
the government to launch a
moratorium on the seal slaughter or to
reduce the number of permissible
Although 500 to 1,000 protesters were
expected, John Findley, president of
Ann Arbor's Friends of Greenpeace,
was pleased with the turnout. "I think
we have a lot more supporters than
showed up, but considering the weather
and mid-term time, I think we did

Representative Dennis Hertel and
Detroit Free Press columnist Tom
Hennessey were scheduled to speak,
but none of them made it to the protest.
ACCORDING TO Findley, Kelly and
Hertel were unable to attend due to last
minute conflicts, and Hennessey's
higher-ups did not want him to get ac-
tively involved with the protest.
Greenpeace's main objection to the
hunt, Findley said, is the commercial
use of pelts. Differing reports have
failed to determine whether the harp
seal may be an endangered species.

64-year-old Mary Cummings, a native
of Ann Arbor, carried a hand-painted
sign of two seal pups in the rally. She,
said she joined Greenpeace because she
loves animals and cannot stand to see
them killed. "The Canadian gover-
nment speaks of killing as a tradition,"
she said. "I think there should be a bet-
ter reason."
said he is against killing for fashion. "I
feel very strongly about what we have
on earth. We don't own animals and just
because they happen to live in a certain

area doesn't let anyone own them," he
"Canada can't claim the seals as
their own. They have no right to decide
the destiny of the seals."
At the beginning of the rally, Friends
of Greenpeace member Jamie Greager
read a letter he sent to both the
Canadian and Norwegian governmen-
ts. "By letting them know we're in-
terested, we can accomplish more," he

and "Extinction is forever."
"IF I COULD, I would love to go on
the ice and cQnfront the sealers face-to-
face," said protester Cindy Urban._
"The seals aren't going for
anything-just fashion for elitist
people," said Washtenaw Community
College sophomore Mike Berns. "This
rally is part of influencing the gover-

nment.'That's why we held it in Detroit
and not Ann Arbor."
Last Thursday evening, Friends of
Greenpeace showed a "Save the Seals"
movie at the UGLI. "Two people from
Newfoundland attended the film and
came to the front of the room afterward
for a debate," said Findley. He said he
was pleased with the turnout and said
he hoped everyone would participate in
the "Save the Whales" campaign which
is currently in its planning stage.
