'M' leads Roses race

Special to the Daily
offense, beset by penalties and tur-
novers in the first three quarters, ex-
ploded for 21 fourth quarter points to
sprint away from the Purdue Boiler-
makers, 28-10, in front of 69,736 fans at
Ross-Ade Stadium yesterday.
The Michigan win, coupled with
Wisconsin's 17-7 loss to Iowa yesterday,
places the Wolverines atop the Big Ten
BUTCH WOOLFOLK (left) and Ben
Needham (below) illustrate two
reasons why the Wolverines got by the
Boilermakers, 28-10, yesterday in West
Lafayette. Michigan now holds its own
Rose Bowl destiny, needing only a win-
over Ohio State for the trip to'

standings with a 6-2 conference record
and in control of their Rose Bowl
IF MICHIGAN defeats Ohio State
next Saturday, the Wolverines will be
crowned the Big Ten champs and will
make the trek to Pasadena for the four-
th time in the last five years. However,
if Michigan loses to Ohio State and Iowa
beats Michigan State, the Hawkeyes
will represent the Big Ten in Pasadena.
If Ohio State wins next week and Iowa
loses, the Buckeyes fly to California.
"We're still in the race," understated
a smiling Bo Schembechler after the
game. "That's gratifying. We were
poor offensively, yet we won- by 18.
That's encouraging."
BUT FOR THREE quarters, it looked
as though the Ross-Ade stadium jinx
would surface again. Michigan had lost
three out of the last four contests on the
grass in West Lafayette, and the
Wolverines found themselves trailing,
10-7, entering the final period.
In the fourth quarter, however,
Michigan quarterback Steve Smith
engineered three straight touchdown
drives to put the Wolverines ahead to
stay. Early in the quarter, starting at
their own 24-yard line, Smith and
fullback Stanley Edwards each carried
once to advance the ball to the

Michigan 42. On a third down and three
play, Smith faded back and rifled a
pass to split end Vince Bean, which was
broken up by Purdue cornerback
Robert Williams.'But a yellow flag fell
near the fallen Bean and a pass inter-
ference call breathed new life into the
Michigan drive. Tailback Butch
Woolfolk went for three yards to the 26,
setting up a touchdown run by Smith.
The sophomore quarterback ran the op-
tion to the short side of the field, looked
to Woolfolk, scooted around end, boun-
ced off a Purdue defender at the 10, and
scampered into the end zone, putting
Michigan up, 14-10.
After a Purdue punt, Michigan put
together a 67-yard, 13-play drive with
Woolfolk twisting over from the one-
yard line for the score, padding the
Wolverine lead to 21-10. This touchdown
march featured a pair of long Smith
passes, including a third-down, 27-yard
completion to Bean and a fourth-down,
18-yard swing pass to Edwards to add to
the Wolverine advanatage.
THE FINAL Michigan tally came af-
ter a Keith Bostic interception at the
Purdue 24-yard line, which he returned
to the 14. Three plays later, tailback
Lawrence Ricks trotted into the end
zone from the five-yard line, making

Judge clears

Charges against an Ypsilanti police
officer accused of killing an 18-year-old
Ypsilanti man durin'g a late night scuf-
fle two weeks ago were dropped Friday.
District Court Judge Robert Fink
dismissed the charges against
Patrolman Michael Rae because, he
said, testimony from several witnesses
did not agree and there was not suf-
ficient reason to believe the crime of
manslaughter had been committed.
A SPOKESPERSON for the State
Police Department, which handled the
investigation of the Nov. 1 shooting
death of Michael O'Neill, said yester-
day that "conflicting statements of the
witnesses was the major reason" that
Fink cleared Rae, 28, of any criminal
Fink said that Rae acted in self
defense when he shot O'Neill after a

fight in which, according to the
testimony of several witnesses, the 18-
year-old Ypsilanti man threatened Rae
with a car jack handle.
Witnesses testified that O'Neill and a
friend, James Oethloff, were in-
toxicated when Rae, who was off duty
at the time, approached them and asked
them to move their car which was par-
tially blocking Michigan Ave., a busy
Ypsilanti thoroughfare. a
RAE'S questioning of the two
teenagers in the early morning of Nov.
1 led to a shoving match and then a fight
between O'Neill, Dethloff, and Rae,
witnesses said. Later, as O'Neill ap-
proached Rae, threatening him with a
jackhandle, Rae fired his service
revolver twice, hitting O'Neill with both
shots and killing him.

Two con erences two views


works, says
The economic turnaround President
Reagan promised has begun, a noted
White House economist said in Ann Ar-
bor yesterday.
Murray Weidenbaum, chairman of
the President's Council of Economic
Advisors, said that while the results of
the Reagan economic policy have not
been visible immediately, the changes
he administration has made in budget
and tax policy are gradually working.
WEIDENBAUM claimed that recent
improvements in interest rates and in
the inflation rate are evidence that the
economic conditions in the nation are

Weidenbaum made his remarks at a
news conference held yesterday after-
noon in conjunction with a two-day,
University-sponsored symposium. The

stitute for Values and Science, a unit of
Weidenbaum said he did not think the
administration wouldexperience more
difficulty dealing with Congress in the
wake of recent statements by Budget
Director David Stockman. Stockman's
controversial statements criticized
many key aspects of the ad-
ministration's budget and tax policies.

The people of the state of Michigan
should reject President Reagan's
"Bedtime for Bonzo economics" and'
instead embark upon an alternative
plan to rebuild the state's struggling
economy through reindustrialization,
according to the plan's authors who
spoke at the Conference on Alternate
Economics held here this weekend.
The Reagan administration has been
unable to bring inflation under control
and, as a result, "reaganomics is
beginning to come apart," said Dan
Luria, co-author with Jack Russell of a
so-called "Rational Reindustrialization
recovery plan for the state.

"IF A POLITICAL movement can be
generated, we may find that we really
are the alternative for the first time,"
Luria told the crowd of more than 100
persons gathered in the Michigan Union
Ballroom yesterday for the conference,
sponsored by the Ann Arbor,

Focusing on Detroit's failing
economy, Luria said the city's most
pressing problems were that while the
city is rapidly losing jobs and

Patient dies after fall
from hospital window

From Staff and
Wire Reports
A 23-year-old mental patient,
hospitalized for a self-inflicted stab
wound, struggled free from an atten-
dant yesterday and plunged headfirst to\
his death from a ninth floor University
hospital window.
Hospital officials said Michael
Tabias, of Chelsea, fell five floors to the
roof of the hospital's fourth level where
two physicians unsuccessfully atem-
pted to resuscitate him.
DOCTORS SAID it appeared the man
died of head injuries. Ann Arbor police
officials and the Washtenaw County
medical examiner said they would in-,
vestigate the death and issue a formal
cause later.
Tobias had been at the hospital since
Nov. 3 for treatment of a self-inflicted
knife wound suffered when the man was
on a temporary leave from Ypsilanti

Hospital, a mental facility where he
was a patient.
University.Hospital said Tobias also
had been a patient there Oct. 18-29 when
he was treated for internal burns after
he drank ammonia while award at Nor-
thville State Hospital.
"BECAUSE OF his previous history,
a 24-hour sitter attendance had been
assigned," a spokesman for the
hospital said.
The woman attendant said Tobias
went to the screenless window in his
private room at the hospital about 10:30
a.m. and moved a fan to open the win-
dow. The woman said'she closed the
window, then unsuccessfully tried to
move the man back to his bed.
A struggle ensued. Two nurses, aler-
ted by the attendant's screams, entered
the room to see the woman grasping
Tobias by the ankles as he broke free
and fell headfirst from the window.

Little Nixons
ONFIDENCE IN THE student government at the
University of Colorado has plummeted because of
confessions of election-rigging and a police in-
vestigation :inito alleged cocaine buying by cam-
pus leaders with student fee money. "They're like little
Nixons," said Bill Mullins, a political science major at the
university. "I've lost a lot of faith in the student gover-
nment. It just doesn't seem like there's any morality." The

"whole mess has made me think maybe I ought to think
about voting. I didn't use to care, but now I want to know
what's going on."
Smaller but better army
The Army has slimmed its ranks at Fort Eustis, Va., with
a special diet and exercise regimen. Maj. Eric Lunde,
director of the base's mandatory weight loss program, said
Friday the number of fat soldiers on the 10,000-person post
shas been reduced from 800 to 350 in one year. Although only
130 soldiers have been required to participate in the

in the first four weeks of the program. "He was a big, old
hefty sergeant," Lunde said. "He took up running and stuck
to the diet religiously." QI
Lucky 13
Armand Mellul said he had no money in the bank and the
bills were piling up at home. But that was before Friday the
13th, when he won $1 million in the Pennsylvania lottery. "I
always thought something was coming. I always had
hope," said Mellul, a typewriter repairman from Haddon-
field, N.J. Mellul, 56, joined by his ecstatic family after he
was announced the winner of $50,000 per year for 20 years,

tory." The new nickname, which replaces "Old Pueblo,"
was selected out of about 4,000 entries Friday. The contest
was sponsored by the city's Convention and Visitors Bureau
and the daily morning newspaper, the Arizona Daily Star.
"We wanted something that was going to be different," said
Don Sandstede, one of the judges. "It was the best entry we
had-incredible as it may sound." Sandstede said he sup-
ported "The Sunshine Factory" because it elicited an
image of "a little guy running around like elves or dwarfs,
making little sunshines." Q
