Spikersfall to MSU

By KATIE BLACKWELL
Even though the two teams were evenly matched, as
was the score, going into the fifth game of last night's
Michigan-Michigan State volleyball match at the
CCRB, one team had to lose.
Unfortunately for the Wolverines, despite a strong
comeback in the fourth game, they folded in the final
game under a strong Spartan attack and lost the
match 3-2.
"I REALLY don't know what happened," said
coach Sandy Vong. "There was a mental lapse in the
middle two games."
What happened was a Spartan team that was out to
win and a Michigan team that just was not on target.
The Wolverines fought hard in the first game,
coming from behind most of the game. Michigan
State, paced by the serving expertise of Gina Conroy,
took a quick 10-6 lead until seniors Sue Rogers and
Alison Noble came alive with some overpowering
spikes that kept bringing the ball back to Michigan's
side of the net.
JEANNE Weckler tied the game at 11 with serves

that the Spartans-couldn't haidle. Jennifer Hickman
followed up with some nice shots that put Michigan
over the top with the aid of a Noble spike, 15-12.
For the next two games, the Wolverines were off
target. Spikes were too long, blocks failed and serves
fell short, and the Spartan's capitalized on the
Wolverines' mistakes.
In the second game, the Wolverines went ahead 4-1,
but Conroy struck again with the score going to 6-5
behind her consistently strong serves. The score
jockeyed back and forth between the teams until
game point, with the score 14-13 in favor of State.
Spartan junior, Jane Zenner, smashed a hard service
that put an end to the struggle.
The Wolverines' problems peaked in game three.
State's strong blocking consistently foiled the
Michigan hitters, stopping potential Wolverine
scoring opprortunities and retrieving the ball for
Spartan servers.
BUT THE Wolverines were not out of the contest
yet. Down 7-2 at one point in the fourth game,
Michigan rallied and the Spartans faltered. Hickman

a ive ...
led the revitalized Wolverine play with some tremen-
dous spikes and saves. With the score 14-13 in
Michigan's favor, Hickman stepped up to the service
line and put the Spartans away.
The final stanza was a tough one as both teams
fought hard for the match, but Michigan State inched
out the points after a long 3-3 stalemate early in the
game. Once again, the Wolverines did not look sharp
in their shots and the Spartans placed the ball where
the Wolverines weren't chalking up the game and the
match with a 15-8 victory.
"At this point in the season, the kids are awfully
tired," said Vong. "They've been playing very hard
and hanging in there. State just wanted it a little bit
more than we did.
"Overall, their defense is a bit stronger than ours.
The team is let down. They realize that their chances
of going to the Big Ten tournament are pretty small."
The loss drops Michigan to 4-8 in Big Ten play with
Purdue coming into town on Friday night for a 7 p.m.
match at the CCRB. "Purdue is a strong team," said
Vong. "We'll have to play our very best."

Gopher coach quits

By LISA NOFERI
Unlike the overcast sky that
threatened to make yesterday a dreary
day, Michigan shined as it stopped a
"more experienced" Central Michigan
team 1-0 in field hockey action at Ferry
Field.
Despite the win, Michigan assistant
Aoach Karen Collins, was dissatisfied
~with her team's effort.
"I WAS SATISFIED with the passing
today, but not with the score," said
Collins. "We gave up a lot of oppor-
tunities in the circle."
With passes from link Kay McCarthy,
and sweeper Bridget Sickon, the
Michigan forward line was able to con-
trol the ball ten feet outside the Chip-
pewa's circle for the majority of the
ame.
The Wolverines scored the game's
only goal seventeen minutes into the
first half, that was marked by the ver-
satile play of forwards Lisa Schofield
and Kim Liu. Schofield interchanged
positions with Liu and made a long
sideline pass down the right side of the
field. The ball went into the low corner
of the field and was manuvered to mid-
circle where link Jane Nixon fired

I was satisfied with the passing today, but not
the score.'
- Michigan assistant coach
Karen Collins on her Wolverines'
1-0 victory over CMU yesterday

straight on goal for the score.
CENTRAL HAD four chances to tie
the score before the end of the half but
came away empty-handed. Michigan
goalie Jonnie Terry stopped Chippewa
link Lori Brzezick's shot on goal and a
long Central breakaway and two corner
opportunities were also unsuccessful.
Chippewa coach Mary Bottaro was
also unhappy with yesterday's out-
come.
"We didn't-dominate as much today
as in our last game against
(Michigan)," said Bottaro.

HOWEVER, Central did show im-
provement in allowing only a total of
two goals in the team's two contests as
compared to the eight goals surren-
dered last year. Bottaro credits the ex-
perience of 12 returning players from
last year's squad in helping to hold
Michigan's goal production to a more
respectable level.
The second half of the contest
belonged to Central's goalie, Lynn
Ridinger who was praised by both
coaches for her play. "She had an
exceptionable game," said Bottaro who
referred to a blind save made by

Ridinger minutes intosthe second half,
on a short deflected shot by forward
Joan Taylor off a Maura Brueger pass.
In the second half, Brueger was in bet-
ter control of the ball and her passes,
despite heavy pressure from Central's
sweeper.
Although Michigan succeeded
yesterday in its pursuit of a better
possession game, it was unable to make
that control count where it is needed
most - deep in the circle in front of the
goal. McCarthy and Schofield con-
tinued to exhibit fine play with passes
that utilized both sides of the field.
But Michigan failed to connect when
rushing close on goal. "We're waiting
for the ball to come back out (of the
goal) instead of rushing in with back-up
behind," said Brueger.
A total of eight game corners, four in
the last 10 minutes, were the most ad-
vantageous scoring opportunities for
Michigan. But a lack of quick coor-
dination and extra effort among the
players in the circle could not put more
points on the scoreboard, and the
Wolverines had to settle for their one
goal victory.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Joe Salem,
coach of the University of Minnesota's
1-6 football team, yesterday announced'
his resignation, effective at the end of
the 1983 season.
Salem had one year left on his con-
tract with the school. His resignation
had been rumored for weeks as the
Golden Gophers lost by large margins
to their Big Ten opponents and to top
ranked Nebraska by a score of 84-17.
That defeat set a record for the most
points ever scored against a major
college team.

"It was a difficult decision for me to
make," Salem said. "I don't like admit-
ting that I didn't get the job done. But
I'm a Golden Gopher and I'm loyal to
the university. I feel that it would be
better for everyone involved if I
resigned now."
Salem posted records at Minnesota of
4-6-1, 5-6, 6-5, and 3-8 prior to 1983. Min-
nesota has lost six straight since
beating Rice and is scheduled to meet
Michigan State Saturday at Lansing
before closing against Illinois,
Michigan and Iowa.

Congressional reaction varies on invasion

any question it has about the safety of
Americans in Grenada."
"Even if there is a legitimate
question of safety for Americans in
Grenada, and a need for U.S. forces to
help those who wish to leave to do so,
there is no legitimate reason beyond
tat for our forces to be there," Levin
said.
LEVIN ADDED that "there is no

legitimate reason for the U.S. to seek to
overthrow other governments that we
don't like."
He also disagreed with President
Reagan's announced intention "to
assist in the restoration of law and or-
der and of governmental institu-
tions.. ." in Grenada.
"The Soviet Union has no right to im-
pose its will upon the will of Poland,"
Levin said. "How, then, at the same

time, can we insist that we have the
right to impose our way of life upon
another people in our hemisphere?"
SOME LIBERAL Democrats said
that they suspect the Reagan ad-
ministration is using the safety of
Americans on the island as a pretext for
attempting to eliminate a Marxist
government from the Caribbean.
"If Americans are in danger," said
Reb. Peter Kostmayer (D-Pa.), "the

Civil rights groups criticize firings

United States government has an
obligation to do all it can. The question
is were they in danger or was this used
as a pretext for the invasion."
Parents of students in Grenada ap-
pealed to the White House Monday "not
to take 'any precipitous and
provocative action' because they had
been assured by the Grenadian gover-
nment that their children were safe."
However, Illinois Senator Charles
Percy said the Americans "were en-
dangered. The island was in chaos.

quota systems and mandatory busing
are inappropriate ways to end racial
discrimination.
The firing leaves the commission
without its required quorum of four,
$neaning it cannot even meet until at
east one more member is confirmed by
the Senate.
REACTION TO Reagan's move was
swift.
"We are appalled by the abrupt firing
of three dedicated servants of civil
rights," said John Jacob, president of
tne National Urban League. "The ad-
ministration's move is an insult to the
civil rights community and to the
-ongress which has been searching for

ways to preserve an effective Civil
Rights Commission."
Joaquin Avila, president and general
counsel of the Mexican American Legal
Defense and Education Fund, said the
firing was "Both illegal and destructive
to the fabric of civil rights."
Avila said the fired commissioners'
"only fault has been to denounce
publicly this administration's efforts to
dismantle federal civil rights enfor-
cement."
Negotiations have been under way in
the Senate toward a compromise that
would expand the commission, allowing
the current members to remain on the
job and some of Reagan's nominees to
be sworn in.

Reagan said he had agreed to several
compromise offers, but that they were
blocked by critics. Sen. Arlen Specter
(R-Pa.), a Judiciary Committee mem-
ber active in the dispute over the com-
mission, said he was disappointed by
the firings because "we were very close
to working out a compromise."
Specter joined with Sens. Joseph
Biden (D-Del.) and Edward Kennedy
(D-Mass.) in an effort to reconstitute
the commission as an eight-member
panel named by the Senate and House.
