35-0 win

"WE GOT SOME quick scores and the
game was pretty much ours," Wolverine
coach Bo Schembechler said after the game.
Schembechler had some special words of
praise for his defense, which earned its first
shutout of the season.
"Maybe we're getting better," he
hypothesized. "Our secondary did a good job.
They're young but quick."
For Indiana, now 5-3 overall and 2-3 in the
conference, the one-sided defeat signified a
longer road to a post-season bowl game.
Representatives from eight bowls, most of
them minor in stature, were on hand to wit-
ness the drubbing.
"IT WAS OBVIOUS that Michigan was the
better team today," said Hoosier coach Lee
Corso, who remained optimistic about his
team's chances for a bowl bid. "We just dug
ourselves into a hole. It was difficult to get un-
"We're improving, but we still have to
clean up some of our mistakes," said
Michigan center George Lilja. "We scored
two quick touchdowns before they even knew
what hit them."
Indiana took the ball on its own three after a
Don Braken punt early in the first quarter,
and when it failed to gain yardage on two run-
ning plays, Clifford quick-kicked on third
down. Defensive back Tony Jackson caught
the wobbly spiral on the fly and returned it to

Purchase of
PUMA hand
will further
robotics at 'U'

Over in the confused anatomy of the
East Engineering building, a tiny room
patiently awaits the arrival of PUMA,
the robot.
PUMA, a nickname for Program-
mable Universal Machine for Assem-
bly, will have no eyes, mouth, or feet.
Its appearance will be fairly sim-
ple-like a crude reproduction of a
human arm, with a TV camera "eye"
at the end.
A PROPOSAL to acquire the $45,000
robot is being written by Electrical and
Computer Engineering Assistant Prof.
George Lee, and his colleagues. The 26-
inch tall robot with six moveable joints,
is especially suited for research pur-
poses, Lee said.
PUMA will be programmed to per-
form a variety of tasks. Its hand is a
simple gripping device governed by
"wrist force sensors" that will transmit
information to the robot's computer.
The computer will translate the in-
formation and instruct the robot to, for
example, correct or reject misaligned
or defective parts on an assembly line.
"IT'S GOING to be equipped with a

TV camera to recognize an object," Lee
said, providing the robot with a "hand-
eye coordination system."
Robots currently are used in in-
dustry. "It's more or less like dirty
work," Lee said, citing welding as a
common robot application in the
automobile industry. He said resear-
chers are working to widen the scope of
duties robots can perform.
"We are trying to make robots more
intelligent," he said.
THE USE OF cameyas to
"recognize" objects will vastly im-
prove robots' decision-making abilities,
Lee said. Not only will a robot be able to
react to defective or misaligned parts,
it will be capable of switching its
operations -to accommodate different
objects that it sees, he explained.
Lee predicted an expanded role for
robots in industry and said he hopes to
aid this growth by establishing the
University as "a major resource center
for robotics." He noted that presently
there is a gap between use of robots in
industry and the robotics research
being done in universities and other

RONALD REAGAN LASHES out at President Carter during a campaign rally
in Pontiac yesterday, accusing Carter of creating an economic disaster.
Former President Gerald Ford accompanied Reagan in his four-stop campaign
sweep of the state, seen as crucial to the election, and urged voters to elect
his former political rival.

Porker pigs out
like? Joe Caroselli's pig, Gabriel, eats like a dog.
Gabriel was just a five-pound piglet two years ago,
and now he's a 650-pound porker; and he downs
50 pounds of bagged dog food every week. But Caroselli, a

Dog days of campaigning
When it comes to food, Florida Gov. Bob Graham and
his Democratic friends are non-partisan. While waiting at
an airport after a long day of campaigning for President
Carter, they spotted a spread of free food at a rally for GOP
vice presidential nominee George Bush. The Democrats

promises to make America a better place to live just isn't
enough to bring people to the polls. Officials in Coral
Springs, Fla. are hoping a chance at prizes ranging from a
haircut to a front-end alignment will provide the missing
incentive. Mayor Ben Geiger, recalling Herbert Hoover's
promise to the voters of a chicken in every pot, said,
"Unlike Hoover, we plan to deliver." City officials
acknowledge they are using a gimmick. "So often you hear
people saying they don't know if they'll vote. That's the
group we're hoping to reach," Geiger said. Other prizes for

quite a stir among IRS employees and police-a bomb
squad was sent in to defuse it. The incident began when a
man started to converse with an employee at IRS. He left
without his package so the conscientious employee ran af-
ter him to tell him he left it. He told her to keep the package
because he didn't want it anymore. She became worried
and called the police, who called the Michigan State Police
bomb squad. And they found their bomb-a package of corn
flakes and candy bar wrappers. Police said there are no
suspects in custody. n
