SPAR TAN TURNO VERS AID WOL VERINE CA USE
By DON MacLACHLAN
Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING-The second ranked
Michigan Wolverines capitalized on
Michigan State turnovers and turned
back the inspired Spartans, 24-14,
yesterday before 78,183 fans in Spartan
The Spartans, now 2-3 overall and 1-1
in the Big Ten, had numerous chances
to claw back and get into the game, but
the Michigan defense refused to yield.
After trailing 7-0, the Wolverines grab-
bed the lead for good in the second
quarter on a 50-yard field goal by Gregg
Willner, and went on to post their fifth
"It was a good win for Michigan,"
said coach Bo Schembechler.
"Michigan State played very well.
There were some quick changes of
momentum out there."
The Michigan punting game provided
most of the action in the first quarter.
On Michigan's first possession punter
John Anderson just barely got off a 41-
yard punt after a bad snap. Four
minutes later, Anderson booted a 13
yarder into a strong wind, giving the
Spartans possession on the Michigan 34.
Michigan State couldn't gain one
yard on the Blue defense and settled for
a 57-yard field goal attempt by Hans
Nielsen-which fell short.
The scoreless battle continued and
Michigan, which only recorded one first
down in the first quarter, punted again.
with five minutes left in the session.
Anderson got off another short kick but
State's Mark Anderson charged the
football and fumbled. Michigan's
Dominic Todesco recovered at the State
"'(Mark) Anderson tried to keep the
ball from bouncing and the ball just
slipped out," Tedesco said.
Michigan gave the football right back
when Rick Leach coughed up the ball
three plays later and Spartan Craig
Fedore pounced on it.
The motivated Spartans took
possession on their own 42 and
progressed to the Michigan 20 when the
scoreless first quarter ended.
On the first play of the second quar-
ter, State quarterback Ed Smith faked
to tailback Leroy McGee and lofted a
perfect 19 yard scoring pass to Kirk
Gibson. The Spartan flanker slipped
behind Jim Pickens to put the hosts on
the board and Nielsen conversion gave
the Spartans a7-0 lead.
"At that point we weren't alarmed,"
said tailback Harlan Huckleby, "we felt
we could score on them. We did sur-
prise them with some passes."
On the ensuing kickoff the Wolverines
did just that. Michigan put together an
80-yard drive in nine plays to knot the
score. The march started out with six
running plays before Rick Leach hit
Ralph Clayton with a 40-yard aerial at
the State 15.
After Huckleby burst off tackle for
three of his 146 yards on the day, Leach
connected with Rick White on a 12-yard
scoring pass. The touchdown was
White's first as a Wolverine.
Later iii the period the Leach to
Clayton combination clicked again for
41 yards, setting up Wilner's field goal.
Michigan continued to dominate play
in the period and was knocking on the
door again with two minutes left in the
Clayton ran for 20 yards and hauled in
a Leach pass for 18 more before State's

MIDLAND (UPI) - Production
resumed yesterday at a Dow Chemi-
cal Co. plant where a chlorine spill a
day earlier created a huge, ,deadly
gas cloud that injured eight workers
and forced the evacuation of 13,000
A company spokesman said the
seven Dow workers and a plumber
working for an outside contractor
were out of danger and improved to
fair condition at a city hospital.
TWELVE OTHERS were treated
and released at local hospitals, and
six school children briefly were given
oxygen but needed no other treat-

evaporated into a poisonous cloud

"There apparently was corrosion
on the bolts that held a bonnet on the
valve," Dow spokesman Tom Sin-
clair said at the firm's world head-
quarters not far from the spill site.
"They weren't supposed to corrode,
but they did. The valve has been
SINCLAIR SAID nobody was near
the leak, at the chlor-alkali proces-
sing plant. A warning system at a re-
mote control center recorded the
leak, and the pipe was quickly shut
off, he said.
But in a four-hour period before the
cloud dissipated, authorities were
forced to clear a portion of .this
central Michigan town holding 4,000
homes and 13,000 residents Four
schools also were in the cloud's path.
Saturday Dow officials praised
authorities for ordering the evacua-
tions that featured house-to-house
searches for helpless victims who
may have been felled by the toxic
fumes -that attack the respiratory
"The thing that made the evacua-
tion so widespread was that we were
dealing with four - mile - per - hour
winds that were fickle," Sullivan
said. "That tended to move the cloud
around a bit."

One of the major changes is the

more interesting and meaningful

The wages for most of the jobs are
comparable to outside pay and the
hours are usually flexible.
ACCORDING TO ONE Literary
College (LSA) sophomore, who asked
not to be identified, her job of feeding
500 rats for cellular biology and
chemistry, fitted well into her heavy
schedule. "I would get my work done
in 45 minutes and would get credited
three hours for it. My pay was $3.50
an hour, so I would end up getting
about $10.00 for 45 minutes of feeding
rats," she said.
