the 6-10 center last night after his first
Big Ten start.
MAYBE NOT anyone, but the
Michigan basketball team certainly
was prepared for the Gophers. Paced
by Tarpley's 17 points, 12 rebounds and
four blocked shots, Michigan downed
Minnesota, 66-62.
Antoine Joubert, who scored 14 poin-
ts, and Leslie Rockymore, who had 12,
each hit several key baskets down the
! stretch to support Tarpley.
Mgichigan held a 60-58 lead with 1:11
left in the game when Joubert pulled up
from 18 feet away and canned a jum-
Pei. After a Minnesota miss,
Rockymore found the bottom of the net
from eight feet away on the baseline to
increase the Wolverines' to 64-58.

admits to

downing U.S. pilot

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) -
The Army helicopter pilot killed when
his aircraft was downed by Nicaraguan
gunners was the first American fatality
from "hostile" fire since the beginning
of Big Pine II, joining U.S.-Honduran
military exercises under way here.
President Reagan's spokesman
Larry Speakes yesterday denounced
the attack on Schwab as "reckless and
unprovoked" and key presidential
aides met to draft the U.S. response,
which sources said could include
possible military retaliation.
OFFICIALS IN Washington and the
U.S. Embassy, in Teguciagalpa, Hon-
duras, said the pilot, Jeffry Schwab, of
Joliet, Ill., was killed by "hostile fire"
from Nicaragua after his helicopter
made a forced landing Wednesday
about 2 yards from the border - inside
Honduras.
The leftist Sandinista government
acknowledged that its troops shot down
a U.S. Army helicopter and said it
"deplores the incident." The Pentagon
said the United States made an official
protest, blaming Nicaragua for the
death of the pilot.
Nicaragua's statement, issued late
Wednesday, said the troops shot at a
military helicopter that was inside
Nicaraguan territory, but it carefully,

avoided any admission that the
Nicaraguans had killed the American.
THE NICARAGUAN statement ex-
pressed hope the incident will "not be
used as an excuse to worsen the already
critical situation in Central America."
"The Nicaraguan government hopes
this incident, a direct result of the U.S.
military presence in the area, will be
the last in which the blood of North
American Soldiers is spilled in Central
America," the statement added.
Nicaragua also expressed condolen-
ces to the family of the dead pilot.
IT AGAIN criticized the Reagan ad-
ministration for its support of
Nicaraguan rebels based in Honduras,
but avoided the anti-American rhetoric
that has been usual since the leftists
took power in 1979.
The killing of Schwab was the first
such shooting episode since joining U.S.
Honduran military maneuvers began in
August as a warning to the Sandinistas
against supporting leftist rebels in Cen-
tral America.
The exercises, which began in
August, reached a peak in November
when more than 5,000 American troops
and 6,000 Honduran soldiers par-
ticipated. They are expected to. end in
February. The Pentagon says about
2,900 U.S. soldiers currently are taking

part.
THE SANDINISTA government in
Nicaragua charges that the exercises
are a prelude to an invasion by the
United States or by CIA-supported
Nicaraguan rebels.
The area where the pilot was killed is
just across the border from the scene of
the heaviest fighting in northern
Nicaragua. Recent testimony before
Congress showed the CIA has been sup-
plying the rebels with money, training
and weapons, In tacitly admitting this,
administration spokesmen have said
the CIA aid was part of an effort to
ex'ert pressure on the Sandinistas but
have denied seeking to overthrow the
Nicaraguan government.
Secretary of Defense Caspar Wein-'
berger said in a CBS television news in-
terview, "The indefensible thing is that
the pilot was killed after he got out of
the helicopter and was simply walking
around."
IN TEGUCIGALPA, the government
said yesterday it was preparing a
"stiff" note of formal protest to
Nicaragua.
Pentagon spokesman Michael Burch
said Undersecretary of State Lawrence
Eagleburger called in the Nicaraguan
ambassador to Washington on Wed-
nesday iight to protest the death.

'Senate hopeful seeks local

By NEIL CHASE
ast Lansing businessman Jim Dunn,
appeared in Ann Arbor yesterday to
rally support for his bid to replace
Democratic Sen. Carl Levin in Novem-
ber's general election.
Dunn spent his time wooing local
businessmen and collecting endor-
sements from Republican leaders.
President Reagan swept a straw poll
vote in Wednesday's state Republican
caucuses. See Story, Page 2.
ELECTED to the House on Reagan's
1980 coattails, Dunn narrowly lost his
seat in 1982 to Bob Carr, the same man
he defeated for that seat in 1980. He
recently announced his bid for the
Senate.
'Although he said his campaign would
} focus on defeating Levin, Dunn con-
ceded he would first have to contend
with former Space Shuttle pilot Jack

'(Levin) is the most liberal senator in the
United States Senate'
- Jim Dunn
Senate candidate

Lousma in the August Republican
primary. Lousma, an Ann Arbor
native, has been living in Texas, but
recently returned to Michigan in hopes
of gaining a Senate seat.
Party leaders have stressed the im-
portance of campaigning againt Levin
rather than fighting the other
Republican candidates. But Dunn
asserted that a competitive primary
would strengthen his campaign and the
party.
"I THINK a primary is healthy," he
said. "In the end, it's going to help get
out my position on theissues."
Dunn said that state Republicans
have proven they support the party's
candidate even if it is not the one they
backed in the primary. Although state
voters supported Bush over Reagan in
1980, they were able to rally strongly
around Reagan when he received the
national nomination, Dunn said.

Dunn said he.had challenged Lousma
to a debate at the Republican state con-
vention late. this month in Grand
Rapids. In the letter he sent to Lousma
Wednesday, Dunn chided the pilot for
his 25-year absence from the state, an
issue which could prove to be a large
thorn in Lousma's side.
"I UNDERSTAND you are trying to
bring yourself 'up to date about what
has happened in Michigan since 1959,"
the letter says. "Best of luck to you and
your adivsors as you prepare for the
tremendous task that lies ahead."
Lousma, who is expected to officially
declare his-candidacy later this month,
has been travelling around the state
testing the political and financial sup-
port for his campaign.
Financial support could be especially
important since Dunn, a self-made
millionaire, has vowed to spend as
much as necessary to overcome the

support
name-recognition advantage Lousma
now holds.
BUT DESPITE opposition in the
primary, Dunn insisted that "my race
is still, and has been, and will be again-
st Carl Levin."
"(Levin) is the most liberal senator
in the United States Senate," he said.
Dunn said he would attack Levin for
opposing Reagan's economic policies,
the Grenada invasion, and capital
punishment.
Later in the evening, Dunn met with a
group of about 80 College Republicans
and encouraged them to participate in
the upcoming campaigns as they gain
momentum into the fall. They are "one
of the most exciting things you can get
involved in," he said,
He told the students gathered in the
Union that his major complaint with
Levin is that he favors running
American business from Washington.
Dunn said business should be allowed to
regulate itself.
"Who should control the majority of
wisdom, power, and money?"he asked,
"Washsington D.C., or 240 million
Americans making up their own minds
where they think they should spend
their money, their time, and their ex-
pertise. That's really what this election
is all about," he said.

College football on TV
could boom this year

Suspended nurse reg

By MIKE MCGRAW
Football fans probably will see many
more college games on television this
fall - including a possible night game
between Michigan and the national
Champion Miami Hurricanes - as the
National Collegiate Athletic
Association loosens its grip on broad-
c(ast rights.
h Already this week, the NCAA an-

'nounced at its annual convention in
Dallas that schools and conferences
will be able to produce their own Satur-
day night television series - a depar-
ture from the NCAA's past practice of
negotiating for all its member schools.

expected to decide in February on a suit

A nurse at University hospital
regained her job yesterday, six weeks
after being suspended following her
arrest in an anti-nuclear rally.
Dorothy Henderson-Whitmarsh lear-
ned she had lost her job Dec. 3 after she
was arrested for blockading the gates
of Williams International, a Cruise
Missile manufacturer in Walled Lake.
SHE BEGINS work again tomorrow.
"Sunday's my birthday, so that's a
great birthday present," she said
yesterday.

University News and Information
Director Joe Owsley confirmed that
Henderson-Whitmarsch would return to
work, but would not release details of
the agreement.
UNDER AN agreement with the nur-
se's union, "she can talk about the
details but we can't," Owsley said.
According to Henderson-Whitmarsh,
hospital officials lifted the suspension
on the grounds that she did not realize
she could be fired for her arrest.
"I hadn't been clear enough in my
mind what the repercussions would bF

rains job
or how the University would respond,"
she said.
ALTHOUGH she promised in a
December 28 suspension hearing not to
put the University through the dif-
ficulty of hiring overtime workers
again, she said the suspension will not
keep her from engaging in civil
disobedience.
"I could not tell them I'would not do
civil disobedience or be arrested," she
said.
