UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL COACH Bo Schembechler gives a few rousing words to fans gathered at the Mudbowl last
night for a pre-OSU pep rally. Fans, cheerleaders, pom-pon girls, and the marching band helped give the football
players a proper send off to Columbus where they will meet the Ohio State Buckeyes in their annual clash. The evening
peaked with the burning in effigy of a Buckeye player.

rally last night.
Hundreds of other true Blue Wolverine fans turned out
in near freezing tehiperatures to give the Michigan team a
rousing sendoff for Saturday's season finale football game
in Columbus.
YELLING "UFER, UFER," throughout the rally, the
crowd was told at the end that the veteran WJR radio an-
nouncer would not appear on his physician's orders:
Former Michigan quarterback, Dennis Franklin served
as master of ceremonies, and introduced Bo Schem-
bechler as "the greatest coach in America."
Schembechler said the ball club has improved more
during this season than any Michigan team in the past 12
"THIS TEAM will do everything it can do to win," the
coach prorised, "and I guarantee-it will."
A victory over the Buckeyes will give the Wolverines the

Big Ten Championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl.
The optimistic feeling continued as three senior football
players, George Lilja, Andy Cannavino, and Mike
Trgovac each spoke to the chilled but enthusiastic crowd.
LILJA THANKED the fans for their support during the
season and said, "We felt those Michigan fans up in the

Coach Schembechler introduced Defensive Captain
Cannavino: "He played the best defensive game I've ever
seen last Saturday.
THE SENIOR linebacker added, "We're going to take
over their stadium as if it were our own."
While discussing last year's disappointing Gator Bowl
appe'arance, Trgovac said, "There's only one bowl game
for us, and that's the Rose Bowl."
Ann Arbor City Councilman David Fisher (R-4th Ward),
declared Saturday "Beat Ohio State Day."
"It's time to get on and win a Rose Bowl," the former
Michigan footballer said.

The U.S. economy will undergo a
period of "vigorous and sustainable ex-
pansion" in the coming year, according
to a report prepared by University
economists and presented today at the
28th Annual Conference on the
Economic Outlook held in the Rackham
The report, prepared under the direc-
tion of University President Harold
Shapiro, Professors Saul Hymans, E.
Philip Howrey and researcher Joan
Crary, says this economic growth is
dependent on the "tinely passage" of
the tax cut promised by President-elect
"WE ARE about to 'inaugurate a
president who has long proclaimed
policies which are most conducive to
economic prosperity," said Hymans,
who delivered the report to about 200
national and state business, gover-
nment and industrial leaders.
"The evident lack of success of the
middle-of-the-road economic policies,
which have characterized the past 15
years of economic turbulence, leads us
to believe that we would be better off
with a fresh look at problems which
have been getting the best of us"
Hymans said.
Productivity is expected to increase
slightly, with major expansion in the
areas of consumer spending, and
residential building. This rise is reflec-

It's a familiar story - with a distur-
bing twist.
Each fall the University makes a
request for its share of state money for
the following fiscal year. That move
begins the process of deliberation
among state officials about how much
money the University should get.
THROWING THE process of deter-
mining next year's appropriation into
motion, the Regents approved yester-
day a recommendation to ask the state
for 9.6 percent more than this year's
Regents and faculty discuss a
smaller University. See Page 7.
Here's the catch: Nobody knows
exactly how much the University will
get from the state this year.
But after a year of budget revisions
and economic crisis addresses by Gov.
William Milliken and other state budget
officials, everybody finally has a good
THE GOVERNOR recommended last
week that the University be allocated
$138.6 million for its fiscal year, which
began in July: University President
Harold Shapiro and state budget of-
ficials say that figure is very close to
what the state will be able to provide.

The outlook for the international auto
industry next year is "cautiously op-
timistic," said General Motors chief
economist Marina Whitman.
Whitman, who spoke yesterday at the
University's 28th annual Conference on
the Economic Outlook at Raskham
Amphitheater, said the increase in the
price of oil over the last decade was
"the single most important eventsfor
the auto industry."
"THE 'OIL shock' has given us the
worst of both worlds," Whitman ex-

plained. "It has been inflationary
because it is putting upward pressure
on prices, and deflationary because it
has led to a decrease in global economic
But Whitman cited positive economic
indicators in the outlook for next year,
including auto sales increases in Africa
and Middle Eastern countries. Overall,
the average annual growth of the auto
industry now stands at five percent,
Whitman said, adding that next year's
car sales would total approximately 36

which is predicted to rise to 1.4 percent
after this year's decline of .7 percent,
according to the report.
BUT, ACCORDING to the forecast,
this increase will not be enough to cur-
tail the national rate of unemployment,
which is expected to rise to 7.9 percent,
from its present 7.6 percent level.
The study~ attributes this rather
"lethargic" expansion of the current
economic recovery to the present "tight
money" policies of the Federal Reserve
Board, which make the economy

vulnerable to recessionary trends.
And, according to Hymans, the
nation runs the risk of another serious
dip in the economy later this year if the
Fed continues its tight policies.
HOWEVER, THE predictions, based
on the econometric model designed by
recent Nobel prize winner and Univer-
sity alumnus Lawrence Kline, are
based on certain assumptions which, if
changed, could turn the economy

Aside from occasional "pangs of
anxiety, palpitations, fibrillations, and
a touch or two of angina," the city is in
good shape this year, City Ad-
ministrator Terry Sprenkel told the
Chamber of Commerce in his first state
of the city address yesterday.
Sprenkel said this year's economic
recession, a local reduction in city
rgvenues, and uncertainties about state'
and federal revenue sharing programs
have produced "a continual state of
flux" in city operations.

"I am pleased to tell you that the city
ended its fiscal year on June 30, 1980 in
one of the best financial positions it has
experienced in a considerable period of
time," Sprenkel said. "The city ended
the fiscal year with a surplus of ap-
proximately $1,900,000."

Virginia's chief executive in return for their 125-acre reser-

Chief Little Eagle said the Mattaponi have the oldest reser-
vation in the United States. However, some of the 77 tribe
members who now inhabit the reservation, surrounded by
woodlands, have been grumbling. They said they need
more land to accommodate all the members of their tribe.
"There's nowhere for our young people to spread out and
they've got to leave the reservation," Little Eagle said.
Yeah, sure, but with a tax bill like that, who would want to
leave? Wonder what they get for a refund .. .
