Al not in any danger
NEW YORK (AP)-Former world
heavyweight boxing champion
Muhammad Ali was given test
medications by doctors who said he was
suffering from "Parkinsonism," or
minor symptoms of Parkinson's,
disease. And, Ali said he wanted to
assure his fans he was not dying.
Ali, 42, apparently, did not have
Parkinson's disease, a degenerative
brain disease, "per se," and experts
believed his condition could be con-
trolled by medicine, one of his doctors,
Martin Ecker, said in a telephone in-
Double trouble ,Associated Press
Cincinnati Reds' Pete Rose is cut down at the plate in a 4-2 win over Atlanta last night. The player-manager had already
reached base with his 725th double - good for an NL career mark tie with Stan Musial. Rose also extended his own
major league record of consecutive 100-hit seasons to 22.
"He's not in any danger. It's not a
fatal disease," said Ecker, medical
director of Ali's boxing management
"You don't die from what he has and I
feel very optimistic that what he has
can be controlled by medication."
Ali, whose speech was slow and at
times slurred,ssaid in a television inter-
view that it was possible that boxing
had caused his problems, but said he
never regretted his ring career because
of the good it had allowed him to bring
to other people.

Badgers beware .. .
... conference counts to Bo
T'S unanimous. Last Saturday's 20-11 Wolverine
loss to Washington was the absolute worst a
Michigan team has looked in a long long long time.
Yes, the Wolverines were even worse last
weekend than they were three years ago, when as
everyone's preseason national champs they were
humiliated by the lowly Wisconsin Badgers, 21-14.
The Badgers aren't so lowly anymore and they
come into Ann Arbor this Saturday all pumped up
after taking a 35-34 thriller over Missouri in their
Bo Schembechler knows this is a critical game
for his Wolverines. Schembechler has already
admitted that this team is not an emotional group
as many of his teams were in years past.
After last Saturday's dreadfully lackluster ef-
fort against an opportunistic Washington Husky
team, Bo has guaranteed that his men will be
breathing fire. Wisconsin, watch out.
"The conference has six really good teams,"
said Schembechler last spring, "Ohio State,
Michigan State, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa and
Add the facts that Michigan is coming off such a
flat performance and that Wisconsin is the Big
Ten opener, and you can bet a semester's tuition
that Bo is looking to pound the Badgers into the
tartan turf in as ferocious a manner as possible.
It's all-important, though, to understand one
thing about Michigan's 16-year mastermind. He
does not emphasize the non-conference games.
Bo's philosophy is that if you schedule non-
conference contests you might as well treat fans to
the best football feast possible. Everyone will
agree that Miami-Fla. and Washington were as
delectable appetizers as anything.
"I'd rather play the best teams in the country
(in pre-season), but our most important game is
Wisconsin," said Schembechler, looking to
prepare his team for 1984.
Bo has one goal, to win the Big Ten champion-.
ship and thus qualify for the Rose Bowl. Anything
less goes down in the books as a mediocre season.
With a 1-1 record and so many unanswered
questions about the capabilities of this '84 team,
it's sensible to ask if Michigan can win the Big Ten
A lot on the line
Michigan has the ability to take the champion-
ship if the weakest unit of the team - the offensive
line-can get itself together.
"The key for a successful offensive line is lear-
ning how to work together," said Schembechler.
Thus far, the line, an anonymous group of
quality players, has frequently broken down on
pass plays. With inadequate protection, quarter-
back Jim Harbaugh can not establish an effective
"I don't know what happened out there," said a
dejected Doug James, a senior lineman and co-
captain after the Washington game. "We've got
our work cut out for us, we have to work hard and
prove that we can play."
This is where Michigan fans can take comfort.
Wolverine offensive lines have often started off
slowly only to mold into the wrecking machine
that Schembechler aims for. Michigan's line is too
experienced and too well coached to flounder for
And with the offensive line coming on, the
Wolverine defense will surface as one of
Michigan's meanest in several seasons.
Yes, this Saturday is for all the marbles.
Wisconsin is good and it is Big Ten. Schembechler
wants his men fired up, he wants a blow out and he
wants to answer some nagging questions about his
team. The Badgers had better be on their toes.

Everyone thinks Laura Zaccaro,
daughter of Democratic vice presiden-
tial candidate Geraldine Ferraro, came
to town to open the local Mondale cam-
paign office. The Griddes political staff,
has learned however, that the whole
thing's just a front to get Gerry's Grid-
de picks in each week.
"She was going to use secret service
couriers," said Zaccaro in an exclusive
interview, "but this is more efficient.
Besides, Mom knows she and Walt
would be a weak ticket if one of them
didn't do well in Griddes."
So if all you Republicans want to
strike a crushing blow to the
Democratic campaign and /or deprive
Gerry of a small Pizza Bob's pizza,
