By LARRY FREED
At the beginning of the season Bill Frieder warned the
press and fans not to be overly optimistic about his young
team's fortunes in the Big Ten.
Then he warned his players not to be too excited after their
upset win over the highly-regarded Georgia Bulldogs.
AFTER LAST night's conference opening 68-51 victory
over Northwestern, the talent-laden Wolverines served war-
ning to the rest of the league.
Okay, so it was Northwestern, but as they say, a win is a
More importantly, Frieder wanted to prevent a night-
marish repeat of last season's conference-opening loss to the
"MICHIGAN IS A good ball club," said downcast North-
western coach Rich Falk. "I think they played very well
tonight. They're talented and they have an excellent chance
in the race."
Two big reasons for the Wolverines' prominence in the Big
Ten shined in their debuts last night.
The first, Eric Turner, had an opening night of sorts as he
returned from a back injury that severely limited his play
over the last month. He showed no signs of the injury last
night. In fact, the vanished pain in the 6-3 guard's back
seemed to transform itself into a bigger pain a little lower
down in Falk's anatomy.
ON THE EVENING, Turner registered 16 points, seven
assists and four rebounds. The outing pleased both the Flint
native and his coach.
"It was like the first college game jitters all over again,"
Turner said. "I knew a lot of eyes would be watching me
carefully, and it felt good to get back and play well. It was
definitely my best game of the year."

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) -
The removal from Salvador of two of-
ficers linked to rightist death squads is
an "encouraging sign" that the
Salvadoran military is complying with
U.S. demands to clean up its human
rights record, an American official said
The military high command bowed to
U.S. government pressure at a time
when the war against leftist guerrillas
is going badly for government troops.
STATE Department officials in
Washington say they are preparing
requests to Congress for substantial in-
creases in military aid for El Salvador.
They say, however, that the increase
will not be granted unless the
Salvadoran government cracks down on
right-wing death squads and improves
its record on human rights.
The two officers reassigned to posts
outside of El Salvador were identified
by a government official late Wed-
nesday as Lt. Col. Aristides Alfonso
Marquez, former national police in-
telligence chief, and Maj. Jose Ricardo
Pozo, former treasury police in-
In November the two were tran-
sferred from their intelligence positions
to field assignments in the country,
when critics of the death squad activity
had hoped they would be sent out of El
Salvador. The U.S. official here, who
spoke on condition he not be named,
earlier said U.S. demands included
"long trips" for specified civilians and
military men believed to be leaders of
the death squad activity.
THE reassignments of Marquez and
Pozo are the first sign that the demand
may be carried out.
Vice President George Bush, who
brought a list of names here in Decem-
ber, warned during his visit that the
government would lose U.S. support if
action was not taken against the death
squads. It was not known how many
names were on the list.
The rightist squads are blamed for the
deaths of most of the 39,000 civilians
killed during the war between leftist
guerrillas and the U.S.-supported con-
U.S. officials claim the squads are
composed in part of off-duty or retired
military members. There are also
allegations that the squads are financed
by wealthy Salvadorans living in Miami
and elsewhere abroad.
The Reagan administration is
preparing a report, to be presented
later this month, on human rights and
reforms in El Salvador. The report
would take the place of the certification
process in effect for the previous two
years. President Reagan vetoed
Congress' attempt last fall to extend
its requirement that human rights
progress be certified for American
military aid to continue.
The Kissinger Commission on Cen-
tral America is expected to tell
President Reagan that $1 billion in U.S.
economic and military aid - coupled
with free elections - are the keys to
peace and prosperity in the region in
the coming years, U.S. officials say.
THE REPORT is to be completed
next Tuesday, but it was not clear
whether the members, representing a
range of political views, will be able to
reach a consensus on all issues, the of-
They added that the commission is
still far from finishing its work, raising

Hearing set in scalping cases
By PETE WILLIAMS
Three men, including two University
students, face a preliminary hearing
January 18 on charges of scalping
Michigan-Ohio State football tickets.
Students John Houghton and Mark
Gorge and Ann Arbor resident Roy
Shelef are the first in recent years to be
officially charged with scalping,
said Washtenaw County prosecutor
ALL THREE were arrested after Ann
Arbor police officers purchased tickets
from them for fees ranging between $45
and $60 apiece - prices well above the
$13 face value of the tickets.
Shelef, an employee of American En-
tertainment Services, was arrested on
warrant on December 22 for allegedly
selling four tickets to officers for $180.
Police reports say the transaction was
made November 17 in the parking lot of
the Big Ten party store on Packard.
Police used telephone numbers listed
in classified advertisements in the
Daily and the Ann Arbor News to con-
tact Houghton, who allegedly sold four
tickets to oficers for $60 each. Houghton
was arrested on warrant on December
