The hurricane that had been blowing
across the nation to the top of the
college football polls came to a sudden
halt in Ann Arbor yesterday afternoon.
And Bernie Kosar, the quarterback
who was riding that wind toward' a
possible Heisman trophy season, fell
flatly on his rump, the victim of six
Wolverine interceptions that strangled
the vaunted Miami passing attack and

Festivities started well before game
time yesterday as students and
tailgating alumni soaked up the sun,
tossed the frisbee, ate the food, and
sucked down an early-afternoon beer.
By 10:30 a.m. parking lots surroun-
ding the stadium were packed with
tailgaters. Michigan fans from Ohio,
Indiana, Illinois, and every corner of
the State of Michigan were all spouting
the proverbial optimism for which
Wolverine fans are famous.

DETROIT - Re-electing President,
Ronald Reagan is the most important
step in securing world peace, Vice
President George Bush, amidst chants
of "four more years, four more years,"
told an audience of about 1,800 yester-
"I really feel that helping ,President
Reagan return to the White House is the
most important thing that I personally
- or anyone - can do for world peace,"
Bush told Republicans gathered in Cobo
Hall for the Republican Party's state
"WE MUST have a strong leader in
the Oval Office," he said. "You'll never
hear this president or Vice President

And according to Bush, Reagan has
been a strong leader. "Because of our,
strength, firmness and decisiveness,
America is safer today, believe me, it is
safer today than at any time in the
nuclear age," he said.
"Leadership has brought more than
new hope for opportunity and
prosperity at home. It's also brought
new hope for peace, freedom, and
democracy throughout the world,"
BUT THIS peace and freedom is
dependent on a strong defense, the vice
"It is absolutely essential that we be
strong enough.. . to keep the peace,"
Bush told reporters at a press con-
ference following his address.
"Because we strengthened our defen-
ses, we are better able ,to keep the
peace because we can deter war," he
told the convention.
Bush said "we'll continue to stand for
peace, freedom, and democracy
throughout the world."
BUSH STRESSED the steps toward
an economic recovery which have been
made since the Republicans took office.
He said the recovery is due to Reagan's
leadership. "That's what trust in the
American people can do - trust and
one other thing - leadership."
Referring to Reagan's Democratic
opponent, Bush said, "Walter Mondale

WASHINGTON - Reported serious
crime in the United States fell 7 percent
in 1983, the biggest drop ever and the
first time in 24 years of record-keeping
that crime'declined two years in a row,

But Detroit showed the highest
homicide rate among cities with 100,000
or more people, jumping from fourth
place in 1982, according to figures
released by the National Coalition to
DETROIT'S homicide rate rose from
43.4 killings for every 100,000 people in
1983 to 49.3 per 100,000 last year -
nearly six times the national rate of 8.3
Indeed, the FBI reported an 8 percent
drop in the number of murders commit-
ted across the country last year. The FBI
noted that in general, the decreases
came in all areas of the nation and in
cities, suburbs and rural areas alike.
