Vol. LXXXVII, No. 16 Ann Arbor, Michigan-Sunday, September 25, 1977 Ten Cents Ten Pages
By TOM CAMERON
Bo is giving us just what he said he
would - close football games.
And yesterday's 14-7 win over
Navy may even have been a little too
close as the Midshipmen threatened
to upset the #1-ranked Wolverines
right down to the last second of the
game. If nothing else, Navy may
have upset the number one ranking.
"WE WON, and that's all I can
say," Schembechler said after the
game. "Now we'll find out how good
we are, having to play Texas
Yesterday started out like any
other normal Michigan football after-
noon as the Blue offense marched the
opening kickoff down to the Navy
one-yard line, only to have Harlan
Huckleby fumble away the ball.
"(Guard Gerry) Szara missed a
block on that play," Schembechler
said, "but that's no excuse for
fumbling the ball."
And even though an inspired Navy
team then marched the ball up the
field, the defense still held before the
Middies got too far into Michigan
THEN, LIKE other Saturday after-
noons, the Big Blue machine took the
ball 80 yards in 11 plays, with
Huckleby scampering the last thir-
teen yards off tackle and falling into
the end zone. Michigan went up 7-0
after Gregg Willner kicked the extra
point with 13:50 iemaining in the
The score was keyed when quarter-
back Rick Leach kept the ball on a
fourth and one on the Navy 35-yard
line and went fifteen yards.
Although the Michigan offense did
not score on its next possession, the
defense held and gave the offense the
ball once more before the half ended.
THIS TIME, Michigan took only
eight plays to move the ball 54 yards
into the end zone. Harlan Huckleby
once again got the call, taking a pitch
around the right!end from 22 yards
out and following the downfield
blocks of wide receivers Ralph
Clayton and Rick White into the end
zone. Willner's extra-point closed the
scoring for the half at 14-0.
"After that," Schembechler said,
"We did not play very well offensive-
ly. Defensively, something was miss-
r a nuisance
-7 Blue win
When the teams came out of the
locker room in the second half, there
was some sort of change. "We didn't
make any changes at half time,"
Navy coach George Welsh said.
"Stopping Michigan on that first
drive of theirs helped our confidence.
Our kids felt we could catch them
after the first half."
NAVY CAME out running in the
third quarter, but after being stopped
on its first possession, the Midship-
men went to the air. Quarterback
Bob Leszczynski connected on four
straight passes to bring the ball down
to the Michigan 9 yard line.'
A penalty, John Anderson's sack,
and a six-yard pass gave Navy a
fourth and goal from the Michigan
eight.Leszczynski then hit wide re-
ceiver Joe Kurowski at the one yard
line, but he was brought down
immediately by Derek Howard.
"That was a great play," Welsh
said. "When the Michigan people hit
you, you don't go anywhere after-
wards. Not us, not any other teams
MICHIGAN was forced to punt
before it could get a first down, and
Navy came right back to the air.
After passing five yards for a first
down, Leszczynski dropped back, but

point second period lead, then rallied
in the final 1 minutes onElvis Pea-

41-yard field goal by Uwe von
Schamann with three seconds left for
an incredible 29-28 triumph over Ohio

between the two powerhouses.

his Sooners "lead the universe in
turnovers," and all that charity gave
them the astounding total of 19
turnovers in three games .
But ironically, it was a fumble by
second-string quarterback Greg Cas-
tignola with 6:24 remaining that
swung the tide back to Oklahoma
after the fourth-ranked Buckeyes
had surged to a 28-20 lead by playing
error-free football since early in the

THE BUCKEYES turned back a
two-point conversion run by Pea-
cock. But Oklahoma was successful
on an on-side kick which everybody
know was coming and smartly
moved into position for the winning
field goal, which the West Berlin-
born von Schamann booted with a
15-mile-an-hour wind at his back.
With a partisan crowd of 88,119,
third highest in Ohio Stadium his-
tory, screaming in support of the
Buckeyes' defense, Oklahoma relent-
1 e s s 1 y wrenched victory against
seemingly impossible odds.
Following Kinlaw's fumble recov-
ery, Kenny King bolted 10 yards,
third-string quarterback Dean Blev-
ins passed to Steve Rhodes for 10
more and a crucial offside penalty
against Ohio State gave the Sooners a
first down at the seven after King had
been stopped two yards short.

rally to protest
Kent State gym
By PAULINE TOOLE
Special to the Daily
KENT, OHIO-Close to 1,500 people from all parts of the country gathered
at Kent State University yesterday afternoon to protest construction of a
gymnasium on the site where National Guardsman killed four students and
wounded nine others on May 4,1970.
Participants heard noted lawyer William Kunstler denounce the univer-
sity plans to buuf a $6 million facility, and proclaim that the struggle over
this gym is a continuation of what happened in 1970."
No confrontations with police occurred during the rally, which was spon-
sored by the May 4 Coalition. But participants at a separate demonstration:
after the rally hurled rocks at a construction truck. One person was arrested
in that incident.
THE RALLY WAS opened with the ringing of a bell by May 4 Coalition
leader Carter Dodge.
"I recall seven years ago when that bell rang," Dodge said. "Shortly af-
ter, the national guard moved on a rally much like this. The violence that
day was the violence of the police. Their weapon is destruction. Our weapon
Kunstler, who has represented the Coalition in several legal actions, told
demonstrators that it wass "important to put this rally in perspective."
:y: "Nixon sent troops into Cambodia," Kunstler said, discussing the
shootings' tie to the Vietnam War. "(Nixon) didn't call it a war, he called it
an incursion. Soon after, rallies took place around the country. In order to
squelch (the rallies) there was a shooting-leaving four dead and nine

Senate to make gas deregulation
plan less costly to homeowners
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate
moved yesterday toward making a
natural-gas deregulation proposal
less costly to homeowners, but shied
away from a new test vote on a rival
gas-pricing plan proposed by Presi-
As a result, the senators remained
at an impasse over the natural gas
legislation after a rare eight-hour
CARTER, meanwhile, threatened
to veto any energy bill that conflicts
with the interests of consumers. He
accused the petroleum industry of
trying to add at least $20 billion to the
price of natural gas through immedi-
Speaking at a rally in Norfolk, Va.,
for Democratic gubernatorial candi-
date Henry Howell, Carter said:
"I hate to veto a bill that a Demo-
cratic Congress passes, but you can
depend on it. - I'll protect your
interests when the bill comes to my
NOTING HOWELL'S campaign to
The Senate agreed, 61 to 17, to
consider an amendment that would
make industries, not homeowners,
bear most of the extra cost - if
natural gas prices are deregulated.
However, a final vote on the amend-
ment was delayed.
THE AMENDMENT was spon-
sored by Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, (D-
Texas), who is also one of the chief,
backers of the deregulation proposal.
Bentsen said he made the move in
an effort to win support from those
who claim deregulation would be too
costly to consumers.
Under the proposed modification,
utilities and other industries that use
natural gas as a boiler fuel would pay
higher prices for their gas under
deregulation than th6se who use it for
The Senate earlier turned down, 59
to 17, a move to kill the amendment
In addition to industrial and resi-
dential uses of the fuel, natural gas is
a major raw material for fertil-
izer, a prime farming expense.
Senate Majority Leader Robert
Byrd, meanwhile, predicted that
Congress would pass a compromise
between Carter's plan to keep price
controls on natural gas and the
industry-backed deregulation mea-
"I CANNOT see Congress enacting
total deregulation. I can see a middle
ground," Byrd, (D-W. Va.), told
reporters as the Senate met in a rare
Saturday session to continue debat-
ing natural gas pricing.
He said that while the Senate re-
mains deeply split on the gas-pricing
issue, he thinks senators .will soon
rally behind some form of comprom-
ise that will enable the legislation to
go to a House-Senate conference
committee for a final resolution.
Byrd said he is hopeful a filibuster
on the bill that has slowed Senate
action to a snail's pace can be broken
early next week.
EARLIER, House Speaker Thom-
as O'Neill warned that a vote to end
controls on natural gas would be
rejected by the House.
A move by Senate leaders to halt
the filibuster, a motion that re-
quires a three-fifths majority, is
expected to be voted on tomorrow.
