.finishes off
IU, 24-10

It was a long time in coming, but
Michigan finally delivered a crushing
knockout blow yesterday in its 24-10 vic-
tory over Indiana at sun-drenched
Michigan Stadium.
The Wolverines (2-2) built a 17-0 lead
early in the third quarter, but just as
they frittered away a 21-0 lead in last
week's 31-27 defeat against UCLA, they
allowed the Hoosiers to battle their way
back into contention.
THE HOOSIERS (2-2) narrowed the
score to 17-10 , before the Michigan
offense abruptly ended Indiana's come-
back hopes.
The Wolverine offense took the ball at
its own 25-yard line immediately
following Babe Laufenberg's touch-
down pass to Duane Gunn, and stormed
down the field for the decisive score.
Five Lawrence Ricks carries for 26
yards sandwiched around a 15-yard
Steve Smith to Steve Johnson pass
moved the ball to the Indiana 34.
Two more running plays netted
11 yards, and then Ricks maimed the
Hoosiers' comeback hopes by busting
over right tackle for the 23-yard

knockout punch so desperately needed
by the Wolverines.
"WE WERE up by seven, and we said
'We have to take it andscore,' " said
Ricks, who led all rushers with 22
carries for 124 yards. "We said 'we
can't go, three downs and punt.' "
As was the case formuch of the af-
ternoon, Ricks' touchdown jaunt was
paved with some fine blocking up
"I think (our offensive line's) play
was some of the best that we've
played," said offensive guard Stefan
Humphries. "We put it together today
and it kept together longer than we did
last game. Last game we kind of
faltered at the end. This game we kept
the momentum at the end."
MICHIGAN also had the momentum
in the first half.
Kicker Ali Haji-Sheikh put the
Wolverines on top 3-0 with a 50-yard
field goal 8:42 into the game. The kick
was .the second longest in Michigan
history. Only Bob Wood's 51-yarder
against Navy in 1976 and Mike Lan-
try's from the same distance against
Stanford in 1973 have been longer.

7th victim
dies as
bans sale
CHICAGO (AP)- Mayor Jane Byrne
banned the sale of Tylenol in Chicago
yesterday and frightened residents
began turning in bottles of the medicine
to police stations as cyanide planted in
Extra-strength Tylenol capsules
claimed a seventh victim.
As the trail of poison continued to
widen, cyanide also turned up in an un-
purchased bottle of the capsules that
was pulled from the shelves of a subur-
ban drugstore as part of the in-
vestigation. That means bottles con-
taining tainted capsules of the pain
reliever had been for sale in at least
four stores in the Chicago area.
THE ILLINOIS attorney general has
blamed a "madman" for the
poisonings, but the Cook County
Medical Examiner said he could not
rule out "factory error" because of the
disclosure that cyanide is used in
testing at the Tylenol factories. A
spokesman for the manufacturer
dismissed that possibility, saying
cyanide is kept at an area far from
where the capsules are produced.
Byrne, who on Friday had urged
stores to strip all Tylenol products from
their shelves, declared the ban yester-

Michigan fullback Dan Rice dives into the Indiana end zone from one yard out yesterday to put the Wolverines on top,

The Hoosiers then took over and
began a steady march that came to an
abrupt end when Laufenberg fumbled
while trying to hand off. Michigan
defensive tackle Winfred Carraway
came up with the ball.
MICHIGAN then surged downfield,

mixing up the run and Smith's passes
well. The Wolverines were stymied,
however, on fourth and one at' the
Hoosier 16 when Smith's pass for Carter
was batted into the air by defensive
tackle Steve Moorman and picked off
by strong safety Tom Hendrickson.

Bigger than the ioss of points that
may have come with a completed pass,
though, was the loss of Carter. Carter
left the game on this play with damaged
rib cartilege.

mastodon investigation
About three weeks ago, while sitting
in his office busily preparing a lecture
for his Geology 418 class, Prof. Daniel
Fisher received a phone call from a
'. twoman in Lapeer who wanted to know
if the bones dug up in her back yard were
anything special.
Answering the call, Fisher found that
the woman's back yard contained an
almost complete skeleton of a
-- mastodon.
PHYLLIS and Robert Van Sickle had
decided to call Fisher after excavators
digging a pond in their back yard came
across what looked like a large piece of
Fisher, who is assistant curator of the
University's Museum of Paleontology,
deduced over the phone that the Van
Sickles had dug up the remains of
T a' mastodon.
"In some cases, you can't really be
sure what you've got without looking at
it," Fisher said. "But the Van Sickles
were very clear describing'it, and it
became clear to me that it was a
? _try= mastodon," he said.
THE NEXT day Fisher got another
call from the Van Sickles, who along
with the excavators, had turned up
more bones. At that point, he decided
he had better make the 75-mile trip to
Lapeer to take over the excavation.
Fisher and a group of University
graduate students and museum em-
ployees spent the next three and a half
days, from early in the morning until
after dark, working on the site.
Their efforts paid off, and they
recovered the animal's tusks - the
longer of the two extending more than
eight feet when pieced together - half

tment of foot bones, and an almost
complete backbone.

Research assistant Scott Borduin gets a lift into the car from this specially constructed wheel chair. The $6,000 system
is developed to swing the handicapped into a car.
New wheel chair lets disabled drive

The temptation to park illegally in a
spot marked for handicapped persons is
a great one, especially since those spots
are so often empty. But if two Univer-
sity researchers have their way, those
spaces will soon fill up.
Mechanical Engineering Professors
Mohamed Zarrugh and Robert Juvinall
have developed equipment that will
provide "the freedom of transportation
to severely handicapped people,"
Juvinall said.
CURRENTLY, only limited options
for personal transportation are
available to the severely handicapped.
The only vehicle on the market that
they can drive is a specially adapted
van which can cost as much as $25,000.
Most people can't afford these vans and

must rely on public transportation,
which can be inconvenient - if
available at all-or on other people to
get around.
Zarrugh and Juvinall have developed
a system which lifts the handicapped
person into the car with a specially con-
structed wheelchair and would cost
only about $6,000 plus the price of the
The University is the only public in-
stitution currently conducting tran-
sportation research, said Clarence
Sims, a research assistant on the
project. The system they developed, which
was funded by a grant from the
National Insitutute for Handicapped
Research, was on display last week at
the Capitol Conference on Technology
and Handicapped People in Washington

THE SPECIAL wheelchair hooks on-
to the car door, retracts its wheel, and
pivots the person in the driver's
position. It has an adjustable seat
which allows people of any height to use
it. This feature also provides for added
mobility in everyday use of the chair.
Controls for movement of the
wheelchair rest on its arm, while the
car's controls are attached to the car it-
self. These controls are extremely sen-
sitive and permit people'with limited
physical capabilites to use the car.
The car itself appears normal on the
outside and a regular seat can be added
in a matter of minutes, so it can be used
by a non-handicapped person also.
SAFETY IS a major concern of the
researcher, but Zarrugh noted that

The folks in the white coats
D O GOOD DOCTORS wear white? The University of
Michigan Health Service decided to find out the
answer to this perplexing question by surveying 200 patien-
ts visiting its clinics during a recent one-week period.
Nearly 160 questionnaires were returned-an 80 percent
response rate. When questioned on the clinician's style of
dress, 45 percent responded they felt that it is indeed impor-
tant, while 55 percent said it was not, according to Eleanor
A. Puffe, coordinator of patient and public relations. Those
who voted "yes" said that "health care professionals
shonid /nnk nrnfesinnni and that annronriate cnthes

because they "look professional" and "help distinguish the
doctors from the patients." But the majority voted against
them. Ridiculous. Makes them look like robots," declared
one respondent. "They are intimidating," stated another. A
third suggested: "Black tuxes and white ties would add an
air of elegance to the place." However, Puffe noted the sur-
vey results represented a "sharp change" from a survey
made two years ago. In the 1980 survey, the Health Service
hosted a group of professional and working people during a
special medical program. In assessing the program, many
patients commented that "professional, formal attire" of
doctors was very important to them. But this year, Puffe
said, the survey was addressed to regular Health Service

Arbor's first enclosed shopping center with 121 new stores
that would eventually create 4,000 new jobs. The mall
stirred considerable controversy and many complaints
from environmentalists and no-growth advocates who
argued such a complex was merely an extension of urban
sprawl into Ann Arbor.
