VERITY(fMUSICAL OCIETY
In Its 102nd Year

By RON POLLACK
With today's Michigan-Purdue mat-
chup receiving a tremendous amount of
attention, it has gone virtually un-
noticed that a number of individual per-
formers are on the verge of breaking
team or conference records.
Two such players are tailback Steve
Smith and punter Ray Stachowicz of
Michigan State. Smith needs only 30
yards to break Eric Allen's record for
career rushing yardage, while
Stachowicz's career average of 43.2
yards makes him a strong bet to sur-
pass former Ohio State punter Tom
Skladany's conference record of 42.7.
ALTHOUGH Northwestern is winless
this year, it is expected that a bright
spot will arise this weekend in the per-
son of quarterback Mike Kerrigan.
Kerrigan is in the position to break

three:single season passing records.
Two players on the verge of erasing
receiving marks are Purdue's Dave
Young and Iowa's Keith Chappelle
Young, the Big Ten career leader in
pass receptions, has 2,101 yards to his
credit and ranks third behind the 2,284
of the Illini's John Wright (1965-1967)
and Michigan State's Kirk Gibson, who
finished his distinguished career with
2,347.
Chappelle has been having a banner
year as his 49 catches rank him third
(behind Karl Noonan's 59 in 1964 and Al
Bream's 55 in 1967) for receptions in a
season, while his 823 yards has him
within striking range of Noonan's
record of 933 yards (1964).
OHIO STATE AT IOWA-Buckeyes
remain undefeated in Big Ten play,
despite a scare last week from pass

happy Illinois. Ohio State went into last
week's game with the top ranked pass
defense in the league (105.0 yar-
ds/game), but dropped to fifth (191.0)
following Dave Wilson's aerial on-
slaught. The Buckeye's secondary
should receive a stern challenge from
the Hawkeyes' passing attack, led by
Pete Gales, who completed 23 of 46
passes for 321 yards last week against
Purdue. Look for the Buckeyes, who
will be looking ahead to their battle
against Michigan, to have trouble
covering a three touchdown point
spread. OHIO STATE BY 7.
MICHIGAN STATE AT MIN-
NESOTA-The battle between the
Spartans and Gophers will sport two
running backs coming off sensational
games. While Smith was running
roughshod over Northwestern last
week, Minnesota's Garry White ram-
bled for 145 yards against Indiana. The
Spartans will be staying at home during
the bowl season while the Gophers will
be looking for their fourth consecutive
victory and a spot in a bowl. MIN-

NESOTA BY 10.
ILLINOIS AT INDIANA-The
Hoosiers who sport the top ranked pass
defensive in the league will receive a
stern test frm the second rated passing
offense in the league. Indiana running
back Mike Harkrader needs only 75
yards to pass Rob Lytle of Michigan as'
the number three all-time rusher in the.
Big Ten: Harkrader's presence will
become even more important if quar-
terback Tim Clifford's bruised shoulder
keeps him out of this contest. INDIANA
BY 3.
WISCONSIN AT NORTH-
WESTERN-Two teams of the Big
Ten's lower echelon. The primary im-
portance given to this game 'will be
whether Northwestern can avert a
winless season. Wisconsin hopes a solid
defense can propel it to victory. In ad-
dition to Kerrigan's record-breaking
quest, other possible high points for
Northwestern will occur if split erld
Todd Sheets catches three passes for 28
yards, moving him into second place in
both categories. WISCONSIN BY 17.

NCAA QUALIFIER

Harriers ready for finals

By JOHN KERR
For Michigan's cross country team,
like its football counterpart, today is
judgment day. While the Wolverine
gridders are battling Purdue for a shot
at the Rose Bowl, the Michigan
harriers will be competing in the
District IV championships at Cham-
paign, Illinois, with hopes of winning a
berth to the NCAA cross country cham-
pionships.
Thirty-four teams are eligible to
compete in the district, with each
school bringing seven runners. The top
four teams in the race will qualify for
the NCAA tournament, to be held
November 24 in Wichita, Kansas.
Although there are 34 teams entered,
Michigan coach Ron Warhurst expects
only 18-20 squads will show up.
"There's'no point in going if you don't
have a good team. It's just a waste of
money," said Warhurst.
Michigan should have little or no
trouble qualifying for the berth and is a
good bet to win the District champion-
ship. The only teams likely to challenge

the Wolverines are Indiana, which tied
the Wolverines for the Big Ten title and
are led by Big Ten individual champion
Jim Spivey, and Illinois.
"You have to include Illinois since the
race is being held on their home cour-
se," said Warhurst.
The Wolverines will run the same
seven men in the Districts that they ran
at the Big Ten championships. That in-
cludes All-American Dan Heikkinen,
Brian Diemer, who finished second to
Spivey in the Big Ten meet, Dave
Lewis, Bill Weidenbach, Bill Paren-
teau, Dan Beck, and Bill O'Reilly.
"We're ready to go," Warhurst said
about the condition of the team.
"Heikkinen is all cleared up and we're
healthy."
Heikkinen came down with a bad cold
just prior to the Big Ten meet, and in-
stead of challenging Spivey for the in-
dividual title, finished fourth.
Now, with Heikkinen recovered and
the team at full strenght, the Districts
should be little more than a tune-up for
the NCAA meet, and even Warhurst

feels confident that the Wolverines will
qualify.
"We better," he said, "I've got the
tickets (to Wichita) all ready."

evour Bulls
1 06m99
By DAN NEWMAN
Special to the Daily
PONTIAC-Keith Herron pumped in
eight fourth quarter points to lead the
Pistons to a 106-99 comeback victory
over the Chicago Bulls last night at the
Silverdome. The Pistons, led by a
balanced attack in which six players
scored in double figures, played ball-
hawking defense which forced ten four-
th quarter turnovers.
The Bulls closed the gap to 94-92 on
Artis Gilmore's two free throws with
4:07 remaining. The Pistons then reeled
off seven straight points while forcing
four turnovers in a three minute span.
A slam dunk by Terry Tyler with 1:05
remaining and Kent Benson's pair of
free throws with two seconds left sealed
the victory which snapped the Pistons
three game losing streak.
The lead changed hands nine times in
the third period as the Bulls, led by two
year sensation David Greenwood's nine
points, emerged with a 74-73 lead going
into the final period.
Former Michigan star Phil Hubbard
scored six early fourth quarter points
that led a Detroit surge allowing the
scrappy Pistons to take a 92-88 lead
with 6:19 left, an advantage they never
relinquished. Benson led the Pistons
balanced attack with 20 points, while
Bulls guard Reggie Theus scored a
game high 23.
Larry Wright, a four year veteran
recently acquired from Washington for
future draft choices saw limited action,
and did not figure in Detroit scoring.
Twice the Bulls reeled off six straight
points early in the contest while".
building a 31-22 lead after twelve.
minutes of play. Forward Larry Kenon-
led Chicago's scoring outburst with a ,.
dozen first quarter points as the Bulls,
capitalized on torrid 61 . percent--
shooting from the floor in the period,
and seven Detroit turnovers.
But the Pistons bounced back by..
scoring the first seven points of the-
second quarter to cut the Bulls lead to
31-29. Led by hustling Ron Lee's six.
points and two assists late in the period,
Detroit surged to a 49-48 halftime lead..
