PEKING (AP) - A rash of defections

Murderer nabbed
after bizarre chase

first quarter of yesterday's game.



Convicted murderer Kyle Johnson,
who bolted from police in downtown
Ann Arbor Friday, was apprehended
early yesterday after a bizarre and
sometimes violent chase through
Washtenaw County.
County sheriff's officers arrested
Johnson at 6 a.m. yesterday in a home
in a rural area about eight miles nor-
theast of Ann Arbor. Police found John-
son after the woman living in the home
escaped from Johnson and alerted
nearby officers.
JOHNSON evaded a massive police
manhunt for 20 hours before being
arrested by Washtenaw County Sheriff
Tom Minick and two deputies.
During his dash for freedom, Johnson
stole one car, attempted to steal
another, and broke into two rural
homes, robbing one couple at
knifepoint, and beating another
At the second home, in rural Salem
Township, Johnson took a shower,
leaving the woman he had taken cap-.
tive unattended. She then escaped in
her car and notified county sheriff's of-
ficers, who arrested Johnson in her
home a short time later.
IN A PRESS conference yesterday
morning after the arrest, Minick
described Johnson's escape.
Johnson, serving a life sentence for
the 1979 murder of an Oakland County
woman, first escaped from police
Friday morhing in a parking lot outside
the County Building on Huron Street,
Minick said.
Johnson, 23, was being transported
with two other inmates from the
maximum-security Huron Valley
Men's Prison to County Circuit Court
when he freed his hands from
restraining chains and bolted from a
police van.
Minick said Johnson hid underneath a
house porch in a nearby residential
neighborhood for about 15 hours, while
police search units scoured the area
with dogs and helicopters.,
At about 2 a.m. yesterday, Johnson
left his hiding place and ventured to an
Ann Arbor city parking lot in the 700
block of N. Main St., Minick said.
There, he allegedly hot-wired a city car
and drove through a locked fence gate.
MINICK SAID Johnson then drove
north on U.S. 23, where he was spotted
by a citizen, who reported to police that
a "suspicious" man was driving a
municipal vehicle out of the city.
Responding to the call, police gave
chase and Johnson accidentally drove

Special to the Daily
EVANSTON, Ill.- The Michigan of-
fense was a "perfect 10" during the fir-
st half of its 49-14 victory over North-
western yesterday afternoon at Dyche
Stadium. Actually it was a "perfect
42"-that's how many points it
amassed during the first two quarters
of the rout.
But whatever scale is used, perfec-
tion is the best way to describe a
Wolverine offense that put the ball in
the end zone all six times it had it in the
first half to take a commanding 42-0
halftime lead.
"IN THIS game, in the first half, we
did a workman-like job, made no
mistakes, and put the game away,"
said Wolverine head coach Bo Schem-

Particularly effective for Michigan
was quarterback Steve Smith, who only
played the first 30 minutes, but com-
pleted 10 out of 12 passes for 203 yards
and three touchdowns. The junior,
signal-caller also ran for 71 yards, tying
him with backup tailback Brian Murcer
as the game's leading ball carrier.
"I thought Steve Smith was outstan-
ding," said Schembechler. "Have you
ever seen a better artist than he was in
the first half? He was magnificent."
WHILE SMITH was leading
Michigan to its big win, Wildcat quar-
terback Sandy Schwab was in the midst
of an aerial assault on the record books.
The freshman completed 45 of 71 passes
for 436 yards, breaking Big Ten records
for attempts and completions. The 71
passing attempts also broke an NCAA
record, while the 436 yards through the
air was the most ever given up by a

Wolverine defense.
Schwab's longest pass of the game
was only a 24-yarder, however, prom-
pting Schembechler to say, "I think
he's good. I have not seen him throw the
long pass. The jury's still out on that.
He looks pretty good for a freshman."
Tight end John Harvey hauled in 17 of
Schwab's passes to set yet another Big
Ten record, this one for the most recep-
"HE PLAYED the most courageous
game I have ever seen," said North-
western head coach Dennis Green. "He
has been very sick with the flu the last
three days and I wasn't even sure that I
could use him today."
But it wasn't until the second half
against a Michigan defense infested
with second- and third-string players,
that Schwab and his receivers were

the car into a ditch about six miles nor-
th of Ann Arbor, Minick said.
"He was unfamiliar with the roads
and the high speeds," Minick told
reporters yesterday. "And he has been
in jail since he was 17, so he hasn't had
a lot of driving experience. All that con-
tributed to him driving into a ditch."
After the crash, Johnson again eluded
police, running from the car into near-
by woods. He re-emerged from the
woods, an hour later and about four
miles to the east, where he allegedly
broke into a rural home and roused the
sleeping homeowners.
POLICE SAID Johnson, a native of
Pontiac, robbed the couple with a knife
he took from their kitchen, demanding
money and car keys. Unable to start the
couple's car, Johnson was confronted
by the man, who had grabbed, a
shotgun. He fired a shot over Johnson's
Johnson again fled into the surroun-
ding countryside, travelling two miles
south to another rural home near the in-
tersection of Six Mile Rd. and Pontiac
Johnson, a five-foot seven-inch white
male, threw a brick through the home's
picture window to enter. There, he was
confronted by the woman who lived in
the house.
"THE WOMAN living there was
aware of the situation because she had
seen the reports on, television before
going to bed," Minick said. "She tried
to hit him with a chair. He fended off
the blow and proceeded to beat her.
After the struggle, the 43-year-old
woman was able to calm Johnson, the
sheriff said. "She was very cool. She of-
fered to fix him something to eat."

Sorry, Rover must stay home

For some students, the biggest heartbreak when
leaving home for the University is not the idea of
abandoning home and family, but watching poor
Rover's eyes as the car pulls away from the house for
the last time.
Adapting to life without animal companionship is
often difficult, but there is usually no legal option for
students in Ann Arbor.
"PETS ARE FLAT out not allowed" in dor-
mitories, said Dave Foulke,, manager of Housing
Security. "This is stated plainly in the dorm lease
agreement," and "we would enforce it, from goldfish
to snakes."
Students still try to bring pets into dorms, but
*usually the housing staff soon discovers and removes
them. Rick Zanecki, a South Quad resident advisor,
said he has done just that this semester. "I've had to
ask people on my hall to get rid of a rabbit and a pet
tarantula. People were grouped around the rooms
and oohing' and 'ahhing,' so I found out about them
pretty quick."
However, the housing staff does not manage to sniff

'I've had to ask people on my
hall to get rid of a rabbit and a
pet tarantula.'.

South Quad RA
out all pets. One dorm resident, who asked not to be
identified, proudly displays a 20-gallon aquarium'
with two exotic tropical fish.
ONE, A SIX-INCH Plecostomus named Benny, had
brown and white spots and a suction-type mouth. The
other, an eight-inch Oscar named Tiger, devours live
goldfish. "They really add to the room," the student
said with a grin.
The resident has cleverly positioned the aquarium
so it is invisible to people walking in the hall. But
what if someone eventually discovers the fish and
asks him to remove them? "If I had to, I guess I
would," he said. "I'd talk to them about it. Fish don't

cause much of a problem."
Mary Antieau, South Quad's building director, said
that there are two basic reasons for the rule barring
pets from the dorms. "First, many people are
allergic to animals," she said. "Second, dorms are
simply not a healthy environment for pets."
THE OUTLOOK for pet owners in off-campus
housing is not much better. Brenda Herman, an ad-
visor in the Housing Information Office, said, "Most
landlords do not allow pets. If you are found to have
an illegal pet, the landlords will first ask you to
remove the pet, and, if you refuse, you can be evicted
from the apartment for breach of contract."
Herman added that it can be costly for the tenant if
the pet damages the house. For example, she said,
"If a carpet has cat urine or is infested with fleas,
then the tenant can be held responsible for cleaning
it, which can add up to a lot of money."
Foulke said students shouldn't keep pets in dorms
because "rooms are not designed with pets in mind.
You can't humanely keep pets in those quarters,
mainly for health and sanitation reasons.
