There was virtually no "passing up",
at yesterday's Michigan-Northwestern
football game, and both students and
administrators attribute this to the
rain, a suspenseful game, and changes
in spectator attitudes.
Neither the University athletic
department nor the Ann Arbor police
received reports of fans being passed
up in the stands, said Associate Athletic
Director Don Lund.
LAW STUDENT Terry Calhoun, a
member of Stop Passing Up Now, a
group that in recent weeks has worked
to rid football games of that activity,
said SPUN members patrolled the
stadium with binoculars but witnessed
no passing up.
"This is the first game I haven't seen
passing up in," Calhoun said.
Passsing up-the act of bodily
passing a spectator through the crowd
until he or she reaches the top of the
stadium-has caused several injuries
in the past few years. The victims are

Cannavino's snag halt
By STAN BRADBURY
A win is a win. Even if you barely
beat a team like Northwestern 17-10 in
your home opener, it still goes down as
a big 'W' in the standings. No league
rule says you have to beat the Wildcats
by at least .20 or it doesn't count,
although the moral victory may belong
to the Evanston team.
Michigan beat Northwestern in
Michigan Stadium yesterday by seven
points, but that is not indicative of how
close the game really-was, because it
was REALLY close.
IT TOOK LINEBACKER Andy Can-
navino's interception of a Mike
Kerrigan fourth down desperation pass
into( the endzone with 2:25 left to
preserve the delicate victory. The in-
terception halted a 21-play drive by the
Wildcats as they marched for the tying
touchdown after they dominated the en-
tire second half.
A touchdown by Northwestern, who
has not won a Big Ten game in 18 at-
tempts dating back to 1977, would have
made the score 17-16 in favor of the
Wolverines. The Wildcat coaches said
after the game that if they had
scored, they were planning on calling
for a two-point conversion attempt to go
for the win.
Northwestern, a decided 20 to 30 point
underdog, gave Michigan all they could
handle yesterday before 100,824 per-
sons. Statistically, the game was a toss-
up as each team had 16 first downs and
close to 250 yards total offense. It was
the closest season opener for the
Wolverines since 1972 when they han-
ded the same school a 7-0 setback.

"I'm glad we won," said the 12-year
head coach. "We won't make too much
out of this game. It was a difficult game
Schembechler listed about five
reasons he felt the game was more dif-
ficult than expected, the major one
being the rain early in the game and the
wet playing field which existed
throughout the contest.
"The rain negated us," said Schem-
bechler. "You can't run laterally and
when you take a back like (Butch)
Woolfolk it negates him." Woolfolk, an
all big Ten running back and the con-
ference's leading scorer last year, was
limited to 32 yards in 12 carries for a 2.7
THE WEATHER and an aggressive
Northwestern defense was able to stall
the powerful Wolverine offensive
machine for most of the game.
Michigan's only long scoring drive was
a 70-yard, nine-play affair, led by quar-
terback Rich Hewlett late in the second
quarter. But even that series would
have fallen short had it not been for a
careless penalty by the Wildcats for
having 12 men on the field while
Michigan was forced to punt on fourth
"I'm a little disappointed we didn't
play a little better offensive football,"
said Schembechler. "The best team
won but the best team didn't look like
anything too great."

What did keep the offense going and
Michigan out of the loss column was the

WASHINGTON-After months of frustration and dis-
appointment, Carter administration officials believe a tur-
ning point may finally have been reached toward resolution
of the Iran hostage crisis.
Though these officials, who asked not to be identified, are
skeptical that an end to the crisis is at hand, the feeling here
is that the list of four demands issued Friday by Iran's
revolutionary leader, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini,
could lay the basis for the beginning of a negotiated set-
WHAT ENCOURAGES these officials are several
significant omissions from Khomeini's list as well as the
overall tone of his statement.
Most significant, the officials said, was the exclusion of
any demand for an American apology. This contradicted
Iran's new prime minister, Mohammed Ali Rajai, who only a
few days earlier had specifically demanded American
"repentence" as the price for release of the 52 Americans.
Subsequent to Rajai's statement, the State Department
specifically ruled out an American apology. Two days later,
Khomeini dropped the demand.
THE OFFICIALS warned that although the signs are en-
couraging, any exultation by the Carter administration
would be premature because Iran has contradicted itself
before about conditions the United States must meet.
In Iran yesterday, that country's former foreign minister,
Sadegh Ghotbzadeh, said he believed the hostage situation
had been "unlocked" by Khomeini's list of conditions.
In a telephone interview Ghotbzadeh told the Paris-based
radio station RTL he hoped "the Americans understood the
situation and don't do anything stupid."
HE SAID A letter sent to Rajai from Secretary of State
Edmund S. Muskie had been "positively received" in
The officials here, however, note that even Khomeini's
pared-down list of demands would pose extraordinary dif-
ficulties in any negotiating process.
One such difficulty centers on Khomeini's insistence on the
return of the late Shah of Iran's wealth. Iranian authorities
regard the Pahlavi Foundation, with hundreds of millions of
dollars in assets in the United States, as part of the late
BUT THE DISPOSITION of these assets, held mostly by
the shah's family, would be in the hands of American courts.
