From staff and wire reports
Interest rates drop November 1 on a
federal education loan program for
parents and students, and financial aid
officials predict a surge in new ap-
Olications. O
The- rate on Parent Loans for Un-
dergraduate Students (PLUS) will drop
from 14 percent to 12 percent for loans
made after November 1, the Education
Department announced this month.
The rate is tied to interest rates on 91-
day Treasury Bills, which dropped for
the year ending September 30.
"I SUSPECT we'll see an increase in
volume when that change in the interest
rate occurs," said Dallas Martin,
xecutive director of the National
ssociation of Student Financial Aid .
"They'll probably borrow for thez
second semester of the year."
But the University doesn't expect any
rush for 'the PLUS loan, said James
Zimmerman, associate director of ,a
Financial Aid.
"THERE'S not much activity with
(PLUS) at the University; it (the in-
erest rate drop) will have very little ef-
ect at all," Zimmerman said. Doily Photo bi

U.S. vows to quit U.N.
if Israel is ousted

Last year Iowa booted away
Michigan's Big 10 title aspirations, but
yesterday th Wolverines travelled all
the way to Iowa City to return the favor,
leveling the Hawkeyes, 29-7.
Coupled with Illinois' 26-21 loss to
Ohio State, Michigan is the uncontested
leader in the Big Ten, and Head Coach
Bo Schembechler could not be happier.
"WE'RE IN there," he said. "This
means we're really in the race . . .Did
you see the way the team reacted when
they left the field? Of course they felt it

(revenge). We lost last year, but now
we're back."
"Last year they got us," echoed
Wolverine defensive back Jerry
Burgei. "We wanted to get them, to
eliminate those guys or give them a
loss. Sort of revenge."
If the Blue squad felt a sense of vin-
dication, they were entitled to it.
Michigan grounded the Hawkeye offen-
sive drive, holding them scoreless until
the final three minutes of the game
when the Wolverine second team
allowed a Mike Hufford touchdown

"THEY JUST played super defense,"
said Iowa head coach Hayden Fry.
"They've got a good chance, it's not the
best chance, to win it all. They've got
the conference's leading rusher
(Lawrence Ricks) and Carter too.
Their defense is just super."
Neither team was able to grab early
control of the game, and the first quar-
ter ended in a scoreless tie.
With 12:57 left in the second quarter,
it appeared that the Hawkeyes would be
the first to light the scoreboard, as they

The University's poor showing in a

WASHINGTON - The United States
threatened yesterday to halt payments
to the United Nations and withdraw

Secretary of State George Shultz

prepared to stop participating in the

Energy Agency if Israel is denied

representation there.

Wednesday by U.S. Ambassador Jeane

campaign, mounted by Iraq and Libya

Can't they take a joke?
TEEN-AGE DRIVER in Maryland had a brilliant idea ;
he decided to mount an emergency light atop his car
and use it to pull over a motorist. Unfortunately, the car he
pulled over belonged to Bernard Spangler, a State Police
trooper who was driving an unmarked squad car. Vincent
Tubbs, 18, of Williards, Md. was arrested and was charged
with impersonating an officer and flashing his headlights at
Spangler's car. "He apparently did it just for kicks," com-
mented a Salisbury nolice officer who asked not to he iden-

sat for awhile, taking in the sights. The scene drew about 50
people, many with cameras. The 300-hundred-pound
mother and her cubs stayed until state wildlife inspector
Milton McLean arrived. McLean, using a 20-foot pole and a
utility company "cherry picker," spent about two hours hit-
ting the tree limbs and coaxing the bears down. The
smallest cub was quite persistent, and went scurrying to
other trees before being led away. Utility company em-
ployees and McLean then ushered the bears down the
street. Finally, the bears ambled peacefully off together
and headed toward Little Green Swamp. .E
