MINNESOTA'S playing field was in-

Michigan offense. The grass wasn't as
fast a surface as Michigan's tartan turf
and the Wolverines slipped on
numerous occasions. "We never look

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa

Kruger defended South Africa's
crackdpwn on blacks and blamed
President Carter for part of the
trouble as new criticism poured in
yesterday from abroad and from
opponents at home.
In The Netherlands, ancestral

doctors said yesterday.
Dr. Joseph Baublis, pediatrician at

He also closed down 18 black

The editors, who represented 19
English-language newspapers, said
they saw the government action "as
direct threats to the press, to the
cause of free expression and to the
right of every citizen to know the
facts about his country."
DEFENDING the action in a tele-
vision broadcast Friday, Kruger
waved documents which he claimed
contained evidence of black plans for
unrest. The documents, he said, were

senior citizens aged 60 and over in
Washtenaw and nearby counties.
"The opening of Turner CLinic
