Michigan mauls



Blue offensive power
mars Moeller's debut

Special to The Daily
CHAMPAIGN - Bo Schembechler
and his Wolverines initiated former
pupil Gary Moeller and his Fighting
Illini into the Big Ten yesterday by
crushing them 37-9 in; the teams'
season opener yesterday.
Michigan scored in every period,
using a relentless ground attack to
roll up 350 yards and added 76 in the
air. The key to the offense was Rick
Leach, who ran the option to near
perfection. The junior and three-year
starter kept the ball for 78 yards and
threw for 76 more including two
LEACH'S passing, though limited,
was very effective as he went six for
11 with one interception. Moeller
commented, "He (Leach) threw a lot
better than he has in the past."
Harlan Huckleby ran for 128 yards,
including touchdown runs of three
and 15 yards. Russell Davis added 98
Schembechler was not completely
pleased with the powerful offensive
showing, however. "For the first
game, we didn't play as well as we
were capable of playing," said the
Michigan mentor. "We made a lot of
ball over four times. Two of the

errors ended Michigan drives and
two set up the Illini scores:
Meanwhile the Illinois offense was
unable to get untracked as it ran into
swarming Michigan defenders at
every turn.
"We were never able to execute
with our offense. That was the big
killer to us," lamented Moeller.
"Michigan has a good defense, but
you've got to execute a helluva lot
better than we did today if you expect
to beat a team of their caliber."
THE WOLVERINES' superb de-
fensive performance cleared up the
questions about the rebuilt squad's
quality. Especially impressvie was
the Wolverine pass defense. It al-
lowed quarterback Kurt Steger only
48 yards in the air and added seven
sacks as well.
The Illini managed to draw first
blood on a 42-yard field goal by Dave
Finzer. After taking the opening
kickoff back to the 40, Huckleby
fumbled on the first play from scrim-
mage and the Illini recovered on the
Michigan 43. The Illini settled for the
field goal when their drive stalled at
the 25.
After the kickoff, Michigan took
the ball on its 35. They drove down to
the Illinois 35 before a Leach pass to
Rick White was tipped and intercep-
ted by David Blakely on the 12-yard

Byrd sa
Director Bert Lance's resignation is
{,"inevitable" because 'his effective-
ness has been destroyed and it's
impossible for him to regain his
credibility, Senate Majority Leader
Robert C. Byrd said yesterday.
Byrd, assessing the political im-
pact of disclosures about Lance's
finances, also said that any "slip-
page"' in Carter's standing with the
public or -with Congress because of
the Lance case can be repaired
unless the situation is allowed to drag
"MR. LANCE'S effectiveness has
been destroyed," he said during his
regular Saturday news conference.
"The cloud of suspicion is continuing
to broaden and it will not be possible

for a first down' in the crownl in Illinois history-63.000--watched as Michigan coach Bo Schembeh-

Lance must resign


for him to regain his credibility.
"It is inevitable that he will resign.
I think he should have his say before
the Senate Governmental Affairs
committee on Thursday and then
Carter, campaigning yesterday in
New Jersey for Gov. Brendan Byrne,
said he respects Byrd's opinion. "But
I agree with him that Bert also
should have a chance to explain his
position," Carter said.
THE PRESIDENT said he will
hold a news conference Wednesday
to talk about the Lance case.
Lance will appear before the
Senate committee to explain finan-
cial transactions described in reports
by the Comptroller of the Currency
and the Internal Revenue Service

and in other investigations.
The same committee confirmed his
nomination last January as director
of the Office of Management and
MEANWHILE, every available de-
tail of Lance's personal financial
affairs is being picked over daily by
congressional witnesses, federal in-
vestigators and reporters.
The Democratic chairmen of three
congressional panels , investigating
Lance's affairs have said he should
step down.
Byrd was asked if Lance should
resign because Lance's activities
were improper or illegal or because
of the publicity he has received. But
Byrd declined to give a direct
THE SENATOR said he did not
know what information is available
to the Senate committee, the Justice
Department or other agencies look-
ing into the Lance case and that his
only source of information was news

media reports.
"I'm not going to prejudice the
:cases" he replied.
"I do think the Office of Manage-
ment and Budget should not be
hampered by the ineffectiveness of a
director who obviously cannot carry
on his duties."
While many of the issues in the
Lance case are complicated banking
transactions, the aspect getting the
most attention has been the relative-
ly simple problem of overdrawn
checking accounts by Lance and his
family at a bank where he was
AT TIMES, their accounts were as
much as $400,000 in the red. The
Lances paid interest on these over-
drafts after mid-1974. But bank
examiners view such overdrafts as
the same thing as personal loans.
Bankers are supposed to borrow only
limited amounts from their own

'Something is in the air at
auctions ... people go
-Dennis Sweeney,
Auction goer

"You can lay back in it, swivel in it,
and ever perform tricks on it," he
Donlay said his strategy at an
auction was not to look for a
particular object, but to wait for
"goodies." Besides being able to
purchase objects at lower prices, he
claims many items on sale at
auctions cannot be found in stores.
THE PROUD OWNER of an early
American painting, 30-year-old Den-
ise Sweeney, said i that while she
thought $23 was a little too much to
spend for the object, she could not
leave the auction without it.
"I'm into early American and I
had to have it." she explained.
"Something is in the air at auc-
tions," Sweeney, mused. "The mo-
mentum builds up, and before you
know it, the object you're bidding on
is costing a fortune. People go nuts."
