Illini 16-6 victory
dims Blue hopes

By RON POLLACK
Special to the Daily
CHAMPAIGN - After Illinois beat Michigan 16-
6 yesterday, to take firm control of the Big Ten
lead and an almost-iron grip on a berth in the Rose
Bowl, a grey-haired old man walked up to a mob of
ecstatic Illini players and said, "I'm so happy. I
didn't know if I'd live long enough to see this."
It was a long time in coming.
IN HEAD coach Bo Schembechler's 15 years of
coaching at Michigan, Illinois had never beaten
the Wolverines. Should the Illini (7-1, 6-0 in the Big
Ten) win two of their final three games against
Big Ten tail-enders Minnesota, Indiana and Nor-
thwestern, they will go the Rose Bowl for the first
time since 1964.
"I feel we are the favorites to go to the Rose Bowl,
who are we kidding," said Illinois head coach
Mike White, as he looked admiringly at a red rose
he was holding. "I'm elated we're the favorites.."
The victory triggered a frenzied celebration
throughout Memorial Stadium. With :50
remaining on the clock, the scoreboard proudly
started flashing "Rose Bowl, Rose Bowl." With
eight seconds left, the goalposts were torn down.

But the celebration on the field was mild com-
pared to that in the Fighting Illini locker room.
"IT WAS CRAZY in the locker room," said
Illinois wide receiver David Williams, who caught
six passes for 127 yards. "Everyone was going
wild. Everybody was too happy to cry. We were
running around, whooping it up, hollering, and
carrying roses around. There was even some
champagne."
A more somber mood permeated the Michigan
squad, whose record fell to 6-2, 5-1 in conference
play.
Tailback Kerry Smith was talking to a reporter
after the game when linebacker Tom Hassel
grabbed him and said, "Tell him (the reporter) to
fuck off. Bo said not to talk."
FOR AT LEAST one quarter yesterday,
Michigan had something pleasant to talk about.
The first time the Wolverines touched the ball,
they moved it 48 yards on 16 plays to set up a Bob
Bergeron 38-yard field goal.
In the second quarter, however, thiigs soured
for Michigan. With six minutes left in the half,

U.S. troops take Cuban
and Grenadian barracks

from AP and UPI
ST. GEORGE'S, Grenada - American
troops in Grenada have captured a
strategic army barracks where
diehard Cuban and Grenadian soldiers
were holding out and pressed on with
the hunt for up to 500 more Cubans
hiding in the hills, U.S. officials said
yesterday.
In Washington, the Pentagon raised
the number of American wounded in
the five-day-old operation from 67 to 76.
It said the number killed remained at 11
and the number of missing at seven.
U.S. OFFICIALS said the American
forces have killed 36 Cubans and
Grenadians and wounded 56. No
civilians were reported killed in the
fighting.
Units of the almost 6,000 American
soldiers on Grenada captured the
Calivigny barracks stronghold late
Thursday after overcoming "heavy
resistance," the Pentagon said in a
delayed report.
IT SAID "MANY weapons and
documents" were confiscated in the
barracks, less than a mile east of U.S.
headquarters at the southern tip of
Grenada, but gave no other details of
the operation.
U.S. Marines have also captured
Deputy Prime Minister Bernard Coard,
Marine Capt. David Karcher told
Sreporters.
He said the Marines had to protect
Coard and his Jamican-born wife
Phyllis from a crowd of hostile
Grenadians that quickly gathered.
COARD LED A hard-line faction in a
power struggle within the Marxist
government that led to the house arrest
of Prime Minister Maurice Bishop Oct.
12. Bishop, 39, was freed by a mob of his
supporters Oct. 19 but then slain by
soldiers hours later.
Marines said an informant pointed
out the house in suburban St. George's
where Coard was hiding and the
Americans surrounded the building and
ordered him out. One Marine said rifles
and pistols were aimed at them from
the house and Coard was told, "Come

out or we'll blow the place up."
In Moscow, the Grenadian am-
bassador to the Soviet Union claimed
that the tiny nation's Marxist military
strongman, Gen. Hudson Austin, had
retreated into the central highlands to
lead a guerrilla battle. The report could
not to be otherwise confirmed, although
U.S. officers acknowledge Austin's
whereabouts remain undetermined.
THE CUBAN government ridiculed

the U.S. military's contention that as
many as 500 armed Cubans remained at
large, saying it was "the product of
U.S. imagination and panic."
"Now it seems they see Cubans
fighting behind every tree and rock," a
Havana government statement said.
"The United States is saying that
there are around 500 Cubans fighting in
the mountains. It is a lie," Cuba's am-

Med. student comes
home from Grenada

By GEORGEA KOVANIS
with wire reports
When Sassan Mohtadi awoke to battle
sounds last Tuesday morning, he dove
under his bed and began to pray.
"We woke up at the sound of the gun-
fire...we lay on the floor under the
beds," said the first-year student at St.
George's Medical School in Grenada. "I

was scared. I was sweating. My heart
was beating so fast."
MOHTADI, WHO Thursday arrived
safely at his mother's home in Ann Ar-
bor, said he stayed in his dormitory
room until U.S. paratroops landed on
the tiny Caribbean island and escorted
students to a lecture hall.
In an interview yesterday, Mohtadi
said the one and one-half hours he spent
crouched under his bed "was the most
dangerous time in my life."
Like approximately 600 other
American students attending St.
George's University, Mohtadi waited
while Cuban and American soldiers
clashed after the U.S. invaded the
island Tuesday.
Mohtadi said the American soldiers
shuttled students from their dormitory
rooms to a lecture hall where they
stayed for the next 27 hours, alternating
between sitting in lecture-room chairs
and protecting themselves from the
shooting.
"ONCE IN A while we heard sniper
attacks and we just had to run for
cover," said Mohtadi, who had been on
the island for two months.
He said students were next taken
to a smaller lecture hall where they
helped medical personnel prepare ban-
dage for wounded Cuban and

U.S. stay home,
By JACKIE YOUNG
The Marxists who took control of Grenada in 1979 were able
to reduce unemployment, give cheap loans to farmers, and
produce a regional fishing industry previously controlled by
foreigners, the 1980 Socialist candidate for the U.S. presiden-
cy told a campus audience yesterday.
"Real Democracy was achieved for the first time with the
(Marxist New Jewel Movement) in Grenada," said Andrew
Pulley, who is also chairman of the Detroit-based Socialist
Workers' Party, in a speech before about 80 people at the
second day of the Teach-in on Latin America.
ATTACKING THE Reagan administration's intrusion into
Grenadian affairs this week, Pulley said that "never at any
time was there a threat to United States students in
Grenada" after the death of Prime Minister Maurice Bishop
several weeks ago.
The difficulties in Grenada didn't endanger the lives of
students and it wasn't a crisis situation, Pulley said. "Some

,speakers say
difficulties do exist between leadership in any organization."
Pulley said the administration's continual rehashing of the
Soviet downing of a Korean Airlines jet in August is being
used to justify U.S. military intervention in foreign countries
and increased defense spending.
THE PUBLIC "must prepare to organize to prevent the
situation from becoming worse, Pulley said. "The danger of
nuclear war comes from the U.S. trying to prevent other
countries from determining their own destiny."~
Pulley questioned the reasoning behind the U.S. attempts
to save their own citizens in Grenada while killing people in-
the process. He said the Reagan administration is saying
"We are only concerned with our own students and our own
citizens, the hell with the natives."
Before the U.S. intervened only one person was killed, now
more than 6,000 U.S. troops are fighting in the area, he noted.
THE ADMINISTRATION tactics are to "get more people

EMMA SHARP is just that, even at 100 years old.
Her recipe for a long life - good food, hard work, no
soda pop, and this may be the key, never learning to drive a
car. "I tried it once," explained the Penrose, Colo. resident
with a smile after turning 100 recently. "But I thought once
I learned, I'd go faster than I should, so I never learned. I
thought I went fast enough as it was." Born Oct. 14, 1883, on
a farm in Grenola, Kan., the widow of 30 years offered a few
more hints. "I've always worked in the fields and did

marry her 11th husband, a Texas oilfield worker she
declined to name. "It's time for me to find a good man," she
said Friday, nine days after beginning divorce proceedings
against her three known current husbands. "There may be
a fourth," she said. "I have to call his mother and find out."

she filed for divorce Oct. 19 from James Hubert Shak-

many she's married," he said. Parker said bigamy is a
