OSU soured by turnovers, 24-21

"New Orleans here we come" doesn't
have quite the same ring as "California
here we come," but it still sounds
awfully good to the Michigan
Wolverines' football team right now.
Michigan (9-2) defeated Ohio State
(8-3), 24-21, yesterday before 106,115
fans to earn a berth in the Sugar Bowl
against third-ranked Auburn. Ohio

The Washtenaw County Prosecutor's
Office will decide soon whether to
authorize warrants for the arrest of five
people on charges of scalping tickets to
yesterday's Michigan-Ohio State foot-
Special Ann Arbor Police in-
vestigations on Thursday and Friday
led to five possible cases, said
Detective David Jachalke. He said he
did not know what prompted the crack-
down, but one scalper who refused to be
identified said it was related to a
newspaper article Thursday about
illegal ticket sales.
"That was just the police department
trying to save face," he said, adding
that the investigation would not have
any long-term effect on local scalpers.
Another man, who identified himself
only as "Ann Arbor's foremost
scalper," said intensified police
operations could shut down his 22-year-
old business, and he worried about

Buckeyes' downfall, although they still
had a shot at victory in the waning
moments. Ohio State cut Michigan's
lead to 24-21 on a 32-yard Mike Tomczak
to Cedric Anderson touchdown pass
with 1:52 left in the game and got the
ball back with :32 left on the clock, but
could move no further than its own 38-
yard line when time ran out.
"I think it was a great win," said
Michigan head coach Bo Schem-
bechler. "We're pleased. Things got
shaky at the end."
"We made some plays and got some
turnovers. But we botched some plays
too. But what the heck, when you win
you can forget about that."
What Schembechler probably won't
forget about for awhile are some of the
outstanding performances by some of
" Defensive back Brad Cochran who
intercepted two Ohio State passes.
"This was the highlight of anything I've
done," said Cochran who quit the
Michigan team after two games last
year only to have a change of heart and
rejoin the squad during the off season.
"I'm happy now. I'm looking forward to
the Sugar Bowl. I went-to New Orleans
once and I love Bourbon Street."
" Quarterback Steve Smith who com-
pleted 11 of 20 passes for 207 yards and
two touchdowns, and rid himself once
and for all of the image that he cannot
win the big one. "If we had lost I
wouldn't have considered my career a
failure, but something would have been
lacking," Smith said. "Sooner or later
you have to win the big one. If we'd lost,
people would have seen three losses in a
row to Ohio State and said, 'He's a
loser.' I don't think anyone can explain
the emotion. I've lost to them and lost to

TRIPOLI, Lebanon - Syria's defense
minister was quoted yesterday as
threatening "kamikaze attacks" on
U.S. warships, and the PLO mutineers
he backs were reported to have opened
fire on demonstrators backing Yasser
Arafat, killing 25 and wounding 75.
Mutineer artillery fired on Tripoli's
Zahrieh neighborhood, where Arafat
has set up headquarters, and the port
area where his loyalists are also dug in.
INTERNATIONAL RED Cross of-
ficials, who asked not to be identified,
said the casualty toll at the pro-Arafat
demonstration was compiled at two
hospitals near the Nahr el-Bared

Food co-op harvests
By PAUL JACKSON
When the Packard branch of the
People's Food Co-op closed two sum-
mers ago after losing $8,000 over a two
month period, many people wondered
whether this signaled the beginning of
the end for the alternative food store.
Like other small businesses, the co-
ops felt the crunch of the recession. In-
creasing competition from conven-
tional grocery stores which began to
stock natural foods didn't help either.
BUT IN THE 15 months since the
store reopened, it has managed to turn
a steady profit.
"To date we've bought a new freezer,
paid off all our debts, and have made
several thousand dollars in loans,"
said manager Peter Hiers.
According to those involved with the
co-ops, the turnabout was the result of
changes in management and marketing
"WE MADE ALL the classic
mistakes, said Bill Curtis, former
president of the co-op's Board of Direc-
"(When it first opened), the co-op had
a lot of sixties and seventies trends.
Wanting to do things politically correc-
tly, democratically, led to ignoring
traditional methods of asuring success
in business techniques that had made
other co-ops successful," he said.
"People in the past hired as coor-
dinator had little or no experience in
retail foods," Curtis explained. "I could
name you 20 people we hired -
vegetarians, a lot of enthusiasm for co-
ops," but, he said, they had little ex-
perience in business.
OTHER "CLASSIC mistakes" in-
cluded not allowing for variances in
cash-,flow, poor advertising practices,
and irregular store hours.
In the past, numerous obstacles stood
between the customer and his or her
purchase. At one time, store hours were
set on the basis of when store coor-
dinators were available to work. Today,
the store is open longer and the hours
Haphazard shelving of products also
made shopping more difficult for
customers. Rather than prominently
displaying items that were known to
sell well, products were shelved ar-
bitrarily, making them hard to find for
the casual shopper.

eight relatives and a Roman Catholic deacon in attendance.
The bride wore a white suit and lavender blouse. Everyone
