A local motorcyclist who was arrested last May
for riding without a helmet beat the rap Friday
in District Court, after finding a legal loophole.
Robert VanSickle argued that the ordinance under
which he was charged requires that motorcycles
be "equipped" with helmets - not that the rider
has to be wearing one. He had not only one but
two crash helmets strapped to his bike, and thus
was in compliance, according to Judge S. J. Elden.
Oakland County Prosecutor Brooks Patterson
Friday night went to seven judges before he found
one who would sign an order allowing his office
to bust a theatre showing the X-rated movie
Naked Came the Stranger. The state Court of Ap-
peals had already overturned a lower court rul-
ing that found the movie to be obscene. But
Patterson, undaunted, went ahead anyway and
confiscated the print from the Studio North Thea-
tre in Ferndale - the third time he has done so
in the past two weeks.

Gorgeous -George would have blushed and Dick
the Bruiser would have sneered had they seen the
wrestling card. Nina Hall, who tips the .scale at
115 pounds, was to wrestle Roderick Height, 6-feet
and 220 pounds. To liven up the match a bit, the
feature was going to be conducted in the nude. The
bout was canceled, however, when Height an-
nounced that he was a vice detective with the
Chicago police department and arrested Hall on a
prostitution charge. Police said the Adam andEve

the nude woman of their choice for $50.
The Catholic Conference of Ohio has endorsed
a state constitutional amendment affirming the
legality of bingo. The conference said the loss of
revenue from bingo "would be difficult if not im-
possible to replace under current economic condi-
tions." Officials say the amendment is necessay
because charitable bingo is considered illegal by
some prosecuting attorneys. We can only say "the

At least 17 members of a Christian religious cult
in Arkansas were injured and another member-
a five-month-old baby - killed in a traffic acci-
dent outside Fayetteville. Police arrested one
member of the group and charged him with man-
slaughter because he prevented hospitalization of
the baby on religious grounds. Police said none of
the injured would accept medical treatment. "God
only knows how they weren't all killed. Their
truck was demolished. Maybe more did die and
they carried them off in the mountains," said one
officer. "They were laving all over the accident
site. They wourld just sing for awhile, then chant
for awhile, then moan for awhile."

"I'm not and I don't think the President is either,"
Reagan told the National Federation of Republi-

would not be divisive to 'he party. He did not flat

BADGERS HUMBLED, 23-6
Buell gains 2 10 yards
S11 Wolverine opener

Special To The Daily
MADISON - Combining the outside running of tail-
back Gordon Bell-with a superb defensive showing, the
Michigan Wolverines scored victory number one of the
1975 season yesterday afternoon, downing a much-her-
aided Wisconsin squad 23-6 before a record-setting crowd
of 79,022 at Camp Randall Stadium.
Under the direction of freshman quarterback Rick
Leach, Bo Schembechler's football machine displayed
a devastating ground game rushing for a total of 394
yards. Bell lead the attack, grinding out 210 yards in 28
attempts-an average of 7.5 yards per carry. The last
Michigan runner to garner more than 200 yards in a sin-
gle game was Billy Taylor, against Iowa in 1969.

IN A PLAY THAT typified the teamwork and tenacity of the Michigan defense, tackle Greg Morton (77) and linebacker Dave
Devich (55) hem in Wisconsin quarterback Dan Kopina. The defense held the highly touted Badger attack to only 136 yards,
as the Wolverines opened the 1975 season with a solid 23-6 victory.
ADDITIONAL 1% SLASH:
By SUSAN ADES
The University budget for 1975-76 faces the
threat of an additional one per cent cutback,
according to State Budget Director Gerald Miller
if Governor Milliken wields the power of execu-
tive order to enact further reductions in state
But Miller explained yesterday that the deci-
sion is not expected until October, when state
revenue deficit figures are available.
"IT (THE CUT) could be less than or more
than one per cent, but we can't know until we
have the situation reviewed," he added.
Last week, Attorney General Frank Kelley ruled
unconstiutional a clause in a 'state funding bill
which authorized Milliken's attempt lasst August
to slash monies. The only alternative available
to the Governor now for cutting the budget is an
executive order, according to Miller.
In the event of the one per cent cutback-over
$1 million- University officials are considering a
number of drastic measures including additional
MEANWHILE, a tenacious
defense led by Calvin O'Neal
and middleguard Tim Davis,
completely throttled the much
talked-about Wisconsin offense.
"In all the games at Wiscon-
sin in six years since I've been
here," commented Badger as-
sistant coach Chuck McBride
"losing this one disappointed
me the most. Michigan's de-
fense intimidated our offense."

game. We tightened up inside,
and except for a couple of long
plays we still held them."
W I S C 0 N S I N all-Ameri-
can candidate Billy Marek only
managed 58 yards in 21 at-
tempts. Quarterback Dan Ko-
pina mustered a mere 27 yards
in the air.
"We were beat up front,"
sullen Badger coach John Jar-
dine said after the game. "They
whipped us up front pretty
good. We were just blown off."
Initially it looked as if an up-
hill battle loomed for Michi-
gan. After winning the toss,
Michigan's untested offense
took control on its own 26-yard
line. But on the second play
from scrimmage tailback Bell
took a pitch from Leach, rip-
pid up the left side for two
yards and promptly fumbled
giving Wisconsin the ball on
Michigan's 32 yard line.

EAST LANSING - With an
impressive defensive effort Ohio
State bullied and bruised its way
to a 21-0 battering of Michigan
State here yesterday, before a
record Spartan Stadium crowd
Nine and six yard runs by
fullback Pete Johnson and a 64-
yard pass play from Cornelius
Greene to Lenny Willis account-
ed for the Buckeye touchdowns.
OFFENSIVELY; Ohio State
was sparked by the running of
quarterback Greene and the ir-
repressable Archie Griffin:who
once again pranced his way to
over 100 yards, gaining 108, al-
though it took him 29 carries.
But the stubbornness of the
Buckeye defense did the most to
secure the seemingly easy vic-
tory-the first win for Ohio State
in East Lansing since 1970.S'
"Our defense played superb
football," remarked Ohio State
coach Woody Hayes, as the Spar-
tans never moved the ball with-
in the Ohio State 30 yard line.
THE MICHIGAN State attack
continually stalled because of
numerous mental and physical
mistakes, such as three pass in-
terceptions tossed by Charlie
Baggett. All were snared by
Buckeve defensive back Craig
Baggett completed seven out
of 11 passes and gained only 12

tuton hikes and personnel layoffs.
"YOU HAVE to consider the possibility of a
further tuition increase this January although we
woujld rather not do it," University President Rob-
ben Fleming speculated yesterday.
Indicating that such an action would be unpre-
cedented, University Vice President for State
Relations Richard Kennedy said, "I can't remem-
ber a time when we had to raise tuition in the
middle of the year."
Fleming mentioned the possible instatement of
a hiring freeze as a means of curtailing costs.
"We don't anticipate as of this moment the actual
laying off of personnel, we'll try to depend on
attrition first," he said.
Regardless of what measures will have to be
taken, University officials appear fairly confi-
dent that another blow to government funding
will occur. Kennedy said that since the Governor
felt he had good reason to implement the reduc-
tion last month, "they'll (the State Budget Office)
probably have reason to use the executive order
to accomplish the same thing this time around."
Ethiopian rebel group raids
U.S. station; eight missing
WASHINGTON (Reuter) -
Two Americans and six Ethi-
opians were missing after a
series of attacks Friday night
on a U.S. communications sta-
tion in the rebellious province
of Eritrea, Ethiopia, the De-
fence Department said yester-
The eight were staffing a ra-
dio relay station about 10 miles
southwest of Eritrea's major
city, Asmara, when the attacks
by "unknown forces" took place,

Across the state, people turned up their thermostats and
threw extra blankets on their beds, as unseasonably cold
temperatures early yesterday brought more than a hint of
things to come.
The National Weather Service at Metro Airport reported
the temperature there hit a record low of 40 degrees - snap-
ping a mark set in 1902.
A NUMBER of communities in the Upper Peninsula and
western Michigan were blanketed with light snow that didn't
survive beyond dawn.
Temperatures early yesterday dipped into the 30's in Al-
pena, Escanaba, Houghton, Lansing, and Marquette. But

"He is being kept informed
as details become available. At
this point, we are still trying to
obtain more information," Nes-
sen told reporters accompany-
ing the President.
The Defense Department said
the Kagnew Base was used to
track Apollo spacecraft and for
passing on messages from the
Middle East and Africa.
Just two months ago, the Erit-
rean Liberation Front kidnapped
two American civilian employes
of the Kagnew communications
base operated by the U.S. Navy
They are still missing and are
believed being held for ransom
by the Front, which has waged
guerilla war with the Addis Ab-
baba government to regain the
federal status lost 13 years ago
when the province was annexed
by Emperor Haile Selassie, who
died last month at age 83.
THE ATTACK came on the
eve of a massive celebration in
the Ethiopian capital yesterday
of the first anniversary of the
overthrow of Selassie's regime,
officially known as "Abolution
