The Michigan basketball team's op-
ponents tomorrow night finished first in
their conference last season with a 13-2
record last year, and came within two
games of claiming a national cham-
pionship. This year, they again have a
legitimate shot at the national crown.
Relax, Wolverine fans-it's only an
exhibition game, and the opponent is
Windsor, a team which Michigan
defeated, 135-75, last year. Game time
at Crisler Arena is 8:05 p.m.
AICIn 1979-80 the Lancers won the On-
tario University Athletic Association, a
competitive league by Canadian stan-
dards but whose teams play at a calibre
~ ~ far below that of any Big Ten school.
Their overall record was 18-15, with one
Johnson of the victories coming at the expense
of Wayne State. r


against Lancers

Thus far this season, Windsor is 0-4,
including a one-point loss to Wayne
State two weeks ago. The Lancers,
guided by first-year coach Nick
Grabowski, have also fallen to Rice,
Pan-American, and Texas.
Why does Windsor schedule games
against vastly superior foes? "We want

the exposure to the best," said a team
spokesman. "Our conference doesn't
start until the second week in January.
We like to line up for our kids some ex-
perience with the big boys. They (the
Windsor players) know what they're up
Actually, Windsor has fared


relatively well this season in com-
parison to last, despite what its winless
record might suggest. Rice defeated
the Canadian team by only 11 points,
while Texas topped the Lancers by 10.
If those two games are valid indicators
of what to expect tomorrow evening,
Michigan coach Bill Frieder and his
troops won't come away with another
60-point margin of victory.

The Wolverines, who began their
regular season Saturday at home
against Eastern Michigan, will feature
a familiar starting outfit tomorrow.
Mike McGee and Thad Garner open at
the forwards, Paul Heuerman at cen-
ter, and Marty Bodnar and Johnny
Johnson at guard. Johnson has been
hobbled recently by an ankle sprain,
but returned to practice last week.

* The'Canadian government has
roughly calculated that to cut the

year in Canada and $5 billion to $7

"IS THE COST worth it? This is the
question people have avoided for
years-trying to put a dollar sign on a
natural environment," said Martin
Rivers, head of the Canadian gover-
nment's air pollution control office.
The question cannot be avoided any
longer, he said in an interview.
"The preliminary projections are

Acid rain starts when a fossil fuel is

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP)-A box of let-
ters and business papers, hidden away
in a bank vault for almost a century, is
helping fill the gaps in the story of Jef-
ferson Davis, president of the Con-
federate States of America.
Scholars who have seen the letters
say they could change the way history
views the man who piloted the South
-through the Civil War. The letters go on
.public display Nov. 25 at Memphis State
'University, where they will be
'available for research.
In contrast to the haughty Davis por-
-trayed in history books, the let-
ters-most written by Davis to his son-
an-law, Joel Addison Hayes Jr., bet-
'ween 1864 and 1882-reveal Davis as a
man who cared deeply about his family
-and worried about the Southern soldiers
and civilians who, suffered because of
:the war.
AND DESPITE imprisonment and
years of financial distress following the
- South's defeat; none of Davis' letters
express anger at his treatment.
Most of the letters deal with Davis'
:tangled business and legal 4ffairs,
primarily his long battle to win title to
;Brierfield, the Mississippi plantation
his brother, Joseph, gave him 30 years
before secession.
Throughout the collection is evidence
Davis was bothered by the same
problems facing other Southerners of
F the day, high prices, poor medical care,
taxes and difficulty in finding depen-
dable workers.
THE COLLECTION includes 35 per-
sonal letters and an assortment of
:financial records. Among the latter are
;bills for medical care and a funeral for
;Jefferson Davis Jr., a victim of the 1878
:yellow fever epidemic in Memphis.
. The existence of the Davis papers
was known to but a few Davis heirs and
:officials of the First Tennessee Bank
,until recently. The bank had had
:custody of the collection since 1882
because Hayes, who married Margaret
.Howell Davis in 1876, was then cashier
of the State National Bank, one of First
'enns ,see's predecessors.
The papers were kept in a strong box
in the bank vault until two years ago

Nevertheless, Davis said he was retur-
