In a Big Ten season which has been as
unpredictable as Ann Arbor weather in
October, there remains one con-
stant--everybody beats Northwestern.
The Michigan Wolverines took their
turn yesterday, as they breezed to a 38-0
Homecoming romp over the Wildcats
and suddenly found themselves back in
the thick of a wild scramble for the Big
Ten Championship.
TAILBACK BUTCH Woolfolk capped
the day for the Wolverines early in the
third period when he ripped through the
Northwestern defense for ten yards to
replace Rob Lytle as the all-time'.,
Michigan rushing leader. Woolfolk
finished with 108 markers on 18 carries,
giving him a total of 3,368 career yards.
The victory lifts the Wolverines' con-
ference mark to 3-2 and puts them in a
second place tie with Illinois, Min-
nesota, Purdue, and Wisconsin, one-
half game behind Iowa and Ohio State
(both 3-1). The Big Ten traffic jam is

the result of the Gophers' 12-10 upset of
Iowas - which had seemingly dashed
the Wolverines Rose Bowl hopes, 9-7,
one week ago - and Illinois' 23-21
triumph over Wisconsin.
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler,
who one week ago had described his
team's chances to win the league title
as "zero to none," changed his tune in
yesterday's post-game comments.
"IT'S ANYBODY'S race, I guess,"
he saki. "All the teams in the league
have strengths and weaknesses. No one
team is strong enough to take charge.
It's a very unusual year. In my opinion,
there is no clear-cut favorite. In the
last four weeks, the teams that are the
healthiest will be there."
From the opening drive, a nine-play,
68-yarder which gave the Wolverines a
7-0 advantage, it was apparent to the
crowd of 104,361 in the Michigan
Stadium that this was not the day for
another upset. The Wolverines rang up

however, that Ufer's condition had
remained "serious" throughout the

Dance group warms up

Student activists meet
to build national ties

Last year, Su Addison and Michele Melkerson got fed up
with the high fees at local dance studios and the long wait
lists in University dance classes. But they didn't take these
matters lying down.
These two enterprising LSA seniors decided to form their
own dance program called Impact Dance.
"I WAS FRUSTRATED by the lack of creativity in the
dance department," Melkerson said. "I was looking for a
heightened input in choreography."
After receiving some funding from the University Ac-
tivities Center, Addison and Melkerson began holding free
dance workshops for students last fall. They later recruited
10 other dancers, none of whom were dance majors or
professionals, and began designing and performing shows in
residence halls. Last year's schedule was highlighted by a
performance before 350 people in Lydia Mendelssohn
Theater, Addison said.
Last Tuesday a0 7 p.m. in the Union ballroom, about 60
people, wearing 1 Ltards and leg warmers, were warming up
for the two-hour workshop. Standing at the front of the class,
slim and looking at ease, Addison described and then demon-

strated the jazz combination she would teach to the group
that night. The sounds of George Benson filled the ballroom,
as 60 dancers of varying talent began jumping'and twirling
about. By 9 p.m., the combination clicked.
Michael Bird, one of the few men in the class, was en-
thusiastic about the workshop. "I'm a wrestler, so it provides
me the opportunity to limber up and use my muscles," he
said. "Besides, I love jazz music and it's great to work on the

Ranging from moderates to radicals,
the students agreed on at least one
issue: that they must build oppostion to
the policies of the Reagan Ad-

"We'd like to see a unified movement
like what the SDS (Students for a
Democratic Society) did in the '60s,"
said Ed Harding, a member of the
Maryland Progressive Student Alliance
at the University of Maryland.
But, while some students like Har-
ding hoped the conference would help
unite leftist and liberal opponents of the
Reagan administration in one cohesive
political coalition, other students were
more concedrned with special issues.

... looks for strategies


Hard times in the UP
Like other American city managers, Dan McCormick of
Calumet has been fighting the battle of the budget. His
strategy, however, is different. McCormick has called for
his own layoff, to take effect Dec. 1. "With cutbacks in state,
aid and rising costs, I just looked over the budget and knew
cuts were going to be made or we'd have a deficit," Mc-
Cormick said Friday. He also recommended cuts in office
