By LARRY MISHKIN
If Bo Schembechler has a subscrip-
tion to Sports Illustrated he must be
doing some serious thinking about can-
Two years ago the national sports
publication tabbed Bo's Wolverines as
the team to beat, and sure enough that's
what the Wisconsin Badgers did,
knocking off Michigan in the season
So the last thing any Michigan fan
* ~wanted to see this year was a pre-
season number one ranking from Spor-
ts Illustrated, but that's what the
magazine did, pointing out the
schedule including a non-conference
match-up with Washington State.
ONLY A strong gust of wind and a lit-
tle help from football's valhalla kept
yesterday's home opener from
becoming another Wisconsin night-
mare. With just over two minutes left in
the game, the Wolverines watched
Cougar place kicker John Traut's 37-
yard field goal attempt sail into the
wind wide to the left, giving Michigan a
chance to run out the clock and earn a
20-17 victory before a crowd of 103,256
And according to Schembechler, the
closeness of the score was no fluke as he
chided the media after the game for
down-playing Washington State's
"There aren't any ho-hummers
. > anymore," said Schembechler, who
saw his undefeated home-opener streak
reach 15. "It was a good opener and I'm
pleased we won. Washington State has
a good football team. They have one of
the best defenses on the West Coast, and
Daily Photo by BRIAN MASCK the only guys who knew they were good
ping Wolverine offense was us."
FOR A while the Cougar's defense
looked as though it was going to make
Sports Illustrated ea. its words again.
Despite rolling up 193 yards in the first
half, Michigan could only manage to
score two touchdowns, while the lone
Washington State score came on a 63-
yard interception return by safety Joe
Taylor on the first play of the second
Then in the second half, while quar-
terback Ricky Turner brought the
Cougar option offense to life, the defen-
se was shutting down the Wolverine of-
fense, yielding only a touchdown mid-
way through the fourth quarter,
But the inspiring effort was not
enough as the Michigan defense was
even tougher, surrendering only 262
yards while holding the speedy Turner
and running back Reuben Mayes to 38
and 34 yards rushing, respectively. In
fact, the Washington State offense did
not pick up a first down until the final
two minutes of the first half and failed
to cross the 50 yard line until well into
the third quarter.
WHEN TURNER got hot though, he
put a scare into the Wolverines and
their fans as he led his team down the
field on two successive possessions for
scores, the second putting the Cougars
up 17-14 with only nine minutes left in
The key to Turner's success was
keeping the ball on the ground and run
ning the option as it was designed to be
run; faking the defense into following
the running back and then keeping the
ball himself and turning it up the mid-
dle for key yardage, including two yar-
ds on a fourth and one at the Michigan
17, during the Cougars' first searing
drive of the second half.

Michigan's Rick Rogers rambles past several Washington State defenders enroute to a 52-yard gain. The dash revived the sluml
and set up the winning touchdown for Michigan late in the fourth quarter.

Bo's boys play beach ball
By SUSAN BARTO
It was football tropicana as Ray-Bans, visors, and bare
chests turned Michigan football into a beach sport yesterday.
Despite untold amounts of cold beer, slowly warming Coke
and Tab, and thermoses packed with ice, many people just
couldn't hack the 90 degree heat: The Huron Valley Am-
bulance Service received about 90 requests for aid and per-
formed 50 transports inside the stadium area, said dispat-
cher John Hockman.
FOR MEMBERS of the Michigan Marching Band, who
sweated it out in their wooly-warm uniforms, thoughts of an
early snow or a trip to the Siberia Bowl were welcome. How
hot was it? Piccolo player Robin Doctor said it was so hot,
"you could feel the sweat running down your back - it's
Of course the extended summer was a benefit for some.
"It's good for a tan and for poundage - you just sweat it off,"
said LSA junior Julie French.
For vendors, the sun meant either record sales or complete

failure. Stadium concession manager Glenn Thorpe said his
service sold between 60,000 and 70,000 cups of pop, which he
said was a new record.
At Campus Corner, Gunars Nollendorfs was able only to
stop restocking the beer refrigerator long enough to say
business was "real good."
On the other hand, vendors who focus on products to keep
fans warm instead of cool had poor days. Engineering college
junior Jim Schueler of Adran's Screen Prints said his sales
were "not too great - but I'm having the time of my life."

'U' prof helps
replace lost aid
By BARBARA MISLE
A University professor has set up a fund to aid stud-
ents who lose their federal financial aid because they
refuse to reveal their draft registration status.
Already three University students - including one
female - face losing up to $6,500 each in federal aid
because they refused to sign forms disclosing
whether or not they registered for the draft.
AFTER A "dauntless search," Psychology Prof.
and Chairman of the University's Civil Liberties.
Board Martin Gold said he has found independent
sources in Ann Arbor to subsidize students whose aid
Under a law ordered into effect in July, all students
applying for federal aid - including women - must
sign a form certifying their draft registration status.,
Of the nearly 11,000 University students receiving
federal aid, currently only three have refused to sign
the forms, but financial aid officials say they expect
None of the students, however, have contacted

the First Unitarian Universalist Church - until it'
was certain students wanted the money.
"I AM NOT AT liberty to tell you the other sources;
they desire to be confidential for the time being,"
A civil rights committee from the First Unitarian'
Universalist Church in Ann Arbor has allocated $2,000
from a special fund to disburse to students who refuse
to comply with the law.
Although the University would not release the.
names of the students, Financial Aid Director Har-
vey Grotrian said they were undergraduates who all
qualified for federal grants. Grotrian also would not
say how much each student was expected to receive,
but he said the aid could have amounted to $6,500
IT IS ALSO unclear whether the students are ac-
tually not registered or refusing to sign the form for
philosophlical reasons. Gold said it is possible that the
students who refused to sign the forms did so because
they had already found sources to replace their
Regardless of such possibilities Gold has made a
firm commitment to make alternative funds
available to students refusing to comply with the law.
Gold said he opposes, the law because it is self-
incriminating and denies students the right to a fair

Sex deductible donation
WASHINGTON D.C. candidate for the city school
board has offered to provide free memberships to an
adult sex club to people who make contributions of $100 or
more to his campaign.
In an ad published in the latest edition of his alternative
newspaper distributed in the District of Columbia, Dennis
Sobin offered membership to the "Playground," a club
modeled after New York's "Plato's Retreat." The club
has met in private homes since a police raid in 1981.
The offer in Free Spirit was also extended to those
donating funds to the campaign of Brendan Feeley, a
Democratic candidate for Arlington, Va., prosecutor.
But Feeley Friday disavowed any connection with
Sobin, who admitted he has never contacted him. Feeley

five sets of twins showed up for kindergarten classes at
"I've never, ever seen so many twins at one grade level
and I've been in the business a long time now," said school
principal Maxwell Morrison.
The school split each pair among the two morning kin-

independent individuals and all seem to be adjusting well,
school officials said.
"At any rate, I'm glad I'm not the only teacher, or else
I'd sure have trouble telling them apart," said Anita Sut-
Even parents of the twins said they sometimes become
confused and one boy is referred to as "little brother"
