Special to the Daily
EAST LANSING - Last March, when
national letters of intent were signed,
Michigan State head coach George
Perles ma'le a statement he would live
to regret.
"We knocked (Michigan's) socks off"
said the first-year head coach,
referring to his team's successful in-
state recruiting drive.
THOSE INFAMOUS words became a
battle cry for the Wolverines and
yesterday Michigan had the final say,
crushing the Spartans 42-0 before 78,033
at Spartan Stadium.
The win was Bo Schembechler's 100th
Big Ten victory and his team won in
typical Schembechler fashion, by com-
bining an explosive offense with a
stingy defense that recorded its first
shutout against MSU since 1973, when
Michigan won 31-0.
Bo made the right decisions all day
and gave Perles a rude awakening to
both the realities of Big Ten football
and the intrastate rivalry in which
Michigan now holds a 50-21-5 edge.
"I wasn't interested in (Perles') pan-
ts, socks or anything else," said a hap-
py Schembechler after the game. "I
just wanted to win".
AND WIN he did, as his Wolverines
scored the first four times they owned
the ball, jumping out to a 22-6 lead early
in the second quarter.
After winning the coin toss and elec-
ting to exercise its option in the second
half, Michigan kicked off to start the
game and the gamble paid off as the
Wolverine defense forced State to punt.
Sixty-seven yards and seven plays
later, Michigan was on the scoreboard
with the touchdown coming ana. Steve
Smith to Milt Carthens pass play that
covered 23 yards.




For the tight end Carthens, who also
caught a pass on the next drive, it was
his first reception since the 1981 Indiana
game and his first collegiate touch-
"We were running a two tight end of-
fense and I happened to be open on the
back side," said an ecstatic Carthens.
"I think ( the State defenders) thought I
was going to block. I was the third
receiver on the play. The linebacker to.
the first tight end and I was open."
CARTHENS, WHO is used only in the
two tight end formation, said he had
been disappointed about his lack of
playing time, but he knew what to do
with the ball once he caught it.
"There was no one there," he said. "I
was shocked and said to myself, 'I'm
going to get across that line.' I didn't
know when to stop."
And neither did the Michigan offense
as it marched down the field three more
times in a row, scoring on a Bob
Bergeron 38-yard field goal, a Dan Rice
one-yard plunge and a Rick Rogers
eight-yard jaunt around the right end.
THE MICHIGAN defense, mean-
while, had a field day of its own and
kept the Spartan offense from getting
on track. On one second-quarter State
drive, the Spartans started on their own
21, but moved up five yards to the 26 on
a pass interference penalty. Sophomore
quarterback Clark Brown then com-
pleted one of his few receptions of the
day only to have it called back because
of a holding penalty. On the next play
Brown was sacked for a five-yard loss
by Vince DeFelice and on third and 29
from its eight, State was called for
having an ineligible receiver downfield
and retreated half the. distance to the

the half and took a 25-0 lead into the
locker room.
The Spartans would have been wise to
stay in their locker room as the
Wolverines added 17 more points in the
second half on Bergeron's third field
goal of the day (23 yards), a Steve
Smith three-yard touchdown run and a

the score was his first as a Wolverine and
served warning to the rest of the league
that Bo has plenty of talent at the
tailback position for years to come.
For the Spartans, the game showed
State still has a long way to go before it
can become a serious contender in the
conference. State could manage just 111
yards of offense all day and ran for only

PLANO, Texas - The streets of Plano

SIX TEEN-AGERS are dead, and this

angry over the national attention it has

Six weeks after the latest suicide,

Three publications vie for student attention

Three alternative student publications - one on the
left, one on the right, and one that rides down the
middle of the political spectrum - are popping up in
campus dormitories and classroom buildings.
According to their editors, all three aim to do the
same thing: "Raise awareness" or "open
discussion" of important campus issues. And they all
are hoping for editorial contributions from the cam-
pus community to accomplish their goals.
The editors say their publications were formed not
necessarily to oppose the Daily, but to offer alter-
native perspectives to issues of significance.
ON THE LEFT is MSA News, which made its fall
debut last week. On the right is The Michigan
Review, a spinoff of William Buckley's National
Review, planning to begn its second year of campus
publication later this term. And in the middle is Con-
sider - a creation of Michael Brooks, director of the
campus Hillel Foundation - which premieres

Consider, which will print 15,000 free copies of its
first issue, is "a non-partisan, non-profit issues-
paper," according to its statement of purpose.
The paper will be published weekly, and each
edition will deal with a specific issue of campus,
community, or national interest. After a debate is in-
troduced, readers will be invited to respond to what
was written in ensuing weeks. "Depending on the
quantity and quality of responses," Consider's
statement says, "a particular issue may be carried
for two to three weeks."
Scott Winleman, the publication's editor-in-chief,
said that students do not feel they have-an outlet to
express their opinions, and Consider will "let studen-
ts express themselves openly."
Tomorrow's first edition will deal with the issue of
linking financial aid to draft registration. Law Prof.
Douglas Kahn argues that the link can work, and
Psychology Prof. Martin Gold, who is helping students

who haven't registered find alternative sources of
financial aid, will argue against the law.
THE MICHIGAN REVIEWwill be oriented toward
campus issues this year, according to Doug
Mathieson, the new publisher. The Review, one of
several conservative college publications that have
appeared on campuses in recent years, last year
avoided most of the controversy that has plagued
several of its sister publications around the country.
Mathieson said that the academic approach of the
National Review, which the local edition tried to
emulate, was not successful in attracting students. So
the paper's scheduled eight editions this year will
focus more on campus topics.
Mathieson, who described the Review as "conser-
vative, with hesitancy...there is no straight-line con-
servative viewpoint," said that publications already
on campus are not exposing all sides of the issues.
