Blue offensive


overpowers befuddled



Special to the Daily
BLOOMINGTON - The Michigan
Wolverine offense, erratic through its
first three games, completely over-
powered Indiana's defense and out-
scored the free-wheeling Hoosiers 38-17,
yesterday at Memorial Stadium.
Butch Woolfolk performed what is
becoming a weekly ritual for the
Wolverines (3-1 overall and 1-1 in the
Big Ten), running through and around
opponents for big yardage. He baffled
Hoosier defenders for 176 yards on 26
carries and two touchdowns.
Woolfolk's performance inks his
name indelibly in the Michigan record
books, as he tied Rob Lytle and Gordon
Bell as the only Wolverines to gain 100
or more yards in six consecutive
games. The senior tailback now has 551
yards after four 1981 outings.
"IT MEANS something to me to be
compared to backs like Rob Lytle and
Gordon Bell because I consider them

I've gotta give credit to the big

great backs," Woolfolk said afterwar-
"I've gotta give credit to the big
fellas up front - they were blocking
their tails off. There were some pretty
big holes out there."
Neither team's defense was able to
stifle the opposition attack early in the
game. Michigan (which finished with
523 yards in total offense and suc-
cessfully converted 14 of 16 third down
situations) took the opening kick-off
and marched briskly to the Hoosiers'
29-yard line, where confusion in the

Michigan backfield resulted in a fumble
recovery by Indiana cornerback Mike
Pendleton at the 36.
BEFORE THE 50,612 fans in atten-
dance could settle back into their seats,
Indiana (1-3, 1-1) had a touchdown on
the board via the arm of quarterback
Dave Laufenberg, who completed three
passes in three plays, the third to senior
tight end Bob Stephenson, wide open in
the back of the end zohe. The tempo of,
the game was set.%
The Wolverines came right back with
a 74-yard touchdown drive, 54 of which,

Woolfolk pumped out, that culminated
in a three-yard touchdown roll out by
quarterback Steve Smith.
Laufenberg (13-18, 197-yds., 1 touch-
down on the game), then took his turn,
hitting wide receivers Tod Schroyer
and Duane Gunn with throws of 33 and
20 yards, respectively, to Michigan's 22-
yard line. The Hoosiers were able to
Push the ball to the five-yard line but
stalled there and settled for a field goal
by Mike Greenstein and a 10-7 advan-
tage at the end of the first period.
But Michigan came back with more
of Woolfolk and took the ball from its
own 20 in a six-minute scoring drive to
start the second quarter. Woolfolk
picked up 24 more yards on the ground
and caught an eleven yard pass from
Smith, the sophomore, who performed
like a poised, confident signal caller for
the second straight week with a 12-for-
19, 164-yard day, finished the drive by

Don't expect the overcrowding problem to
go away after people settle into the term. The
situation is a symptom of deep budget cuts.
Fewer LSA courses are being offered this
year, said Carolyn Copeland, assistant to LSA

Dean Peter Steiner. Copeland said the
decrease in course offerings can be directly
attributed to a reduction of faculty. Univer-
sity officials could not specify the exact num-
ber of courses dropped between this year and
last year.
LSA OFFICIALS have provided the hardest
hit departments - economics and computer
and communications sciences - with ad-
ditional TAs and graders.
Still, upper-level economics classes
average 70 students. Administrators in this
department are considering restricting the
number of students who can major in
economics by implementing a required grade
point average and imposing stricter math and
statistics requirements for concentrators.
Hiring more faculty members seems like

the logical solution, but that won't work now,
said Richard Porter, assistant chairman of
the economics department.
"BY FIGHTING VERY hard we're keeping
the department from shrinking," he said.
"Steiner's answer is don't let anything hire
"We think it's just incredible," Porter said.
"The number of students taking economics
has about doubled in the last few years while
the number of faculty have remained about
the same. We'd need 11 new faculty members
in order to significantly lower the number of
students in a class. The entire lit. college
(LSA) will probably hire about six this year.
"The larger classes are so unpleasant to
take and teach," Porter said. "They (studen-
ts) must be masochists. We keep thinking that

r classes)
maybe as the classes get larger, we aren't teach-
ing as well, the students aren't getting as
much out of it, they'll rebel and go take other
majors.- It's not happening that way. There's
no end in sight."
WITHIN LSA, a number of departments are
known for the overcrowding problem in their
100- and 200-level courses. Students trying to
CRISP into introductory classes in the
mathematics department are frequently
"The department has an agreement with
the teaching assistants thatno section shall
exceed 30 students," said administrative
assistant Leon Zukowski. "We have to do this
in as equitable a way as possible. We try to
keep it fair."

Stats popularity causes
200% enrollment rise

A professor's popularity and some,
streamlining by other LSA depar-
tments has led to about a 200 percent
enrollment increase in the statistics
department in the last four years.
Since 1976, student enrollment in
statistics courses has jumped from
1,170 per academic year to 2,934.
THREE YEARS ago, the psychol-
ogy department phased out its
statistics course and began en-
couraging students to enroll in the
popular Data Analysis I (Statistics
402) or Statistics 300, an introductory
Currently, the political science
department is considering discon-
tinuing its introductory statistics
course next fall because Statistics 402.
covers essentially the same material,
according to department officials.
Statistics Department Chairman
Michael Woodroofe explained that a

centralized introductory course taken
by students from various departmen-
ts, is a more effective method of lear-
ning statistics than a course which is
highly specialized.
"At the beginning level, I think it's
more efficient to have students take
courses with examples drawn from a
lot of different disciplines,"
Woodroofe said.
tment is also experimenting with
specialized sections for students from
each department. He said presently
there are two discussion sections for
psychology students being taught by
graduate students from that depar-
According to Woodroofe, nearly half
the students enrolled in statistics,
courses are taking 402, the depar-
tment's most demanded course, he

BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP)
The IRA called off its hunger strike at
the Maze Prison yesterday after a
seven-month fast that left 10 dead,
relatives in revolt and Prime Minister
Margaret Thatcher's government fir-
mly in control. The guerrillas accused
the Catholic Church of betrayal.
Seven fasters gave up in recent mon-
ths, five after relatives stepped in and
two on medical grounds. A month ago,
the Irish National Liberation Army
dropped out of the protest, citing
British "intransigence," and relatives
of the six remaining fasters said Friday
they would not let them die.
FATHER DENIS FAUL, an assistant
Roman Catholic chaplain at Maze
Prison who met with the families, said
relatives no longer were willing to

Double take
T WO-FOR-ONE sales can be found in drug
stores, supermarkets and hamburger joints. Now,
Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio, is getting
into the act. The small liberal arts school for
women is offering a program in which twin sisters can get
two college degrees for the price of one. An anonymous
donor has offered to pay the annual $7,450 tab for tuition,
room and board of one twin if the second pays her own way.

LeMoyne College in Syracuse, N.Y., says his well-known
brother is criticized unfairly for using bureaucratic double-
talk to protect U.S. interests. Secretary of State Alexander
Haig was once asked by Regina, the oldest of the three Haig
siblings: "Al, why don't you ever answer a question direc-
tly?" "Have you ever thought of the price of a mistake?"
Frank Haig quoted his brother as responding. He saidhis
brother, the former NATO commander, Army general and
corporation president, is knowledgeable about world af-
fairs but "definitely not an academic type." The high
school principal in the Philadelphia suburb of Bala Cyn-
wyd, Pa., where they grew up, once told his mother that "Al

pilfering fares. The treasurer of the Southeastern Pen-
nsylvania Transportation Authority said Friday the com-
pany lost $3 million to $4 million due to employee theft
during the last nine months. "We just won't tolerate any
pilferage around here," the treasurer said. "We'll do what
we have to do to put a stop to it."

Restaurant rebate
Gene Valian is challenging his patrons to find out if there
really is such a thing as a free lunch. Starting today, the
menu at Valian's restaurant in Grants Pass, Ore., will
literally be price-less. Patrons can pay what they think
their meal is worth. "Some people will come in and pay
what the meal is worth," says Valian, owner of the Great
American Breakfast and Barbecue House. "Other people
will come in and have no conscience." He says he will con-
tinue the gimmick "as long as people's conscience
allow"-or until the restaurant's profits drop dramatically.
