Ann Arbor, Michigan - Sunday, October 7, 1984
By DOUGLAS B. LEVY
For Michigan State it was the
ultimate triumph. For Michigan, the
most bitter of defeats and a hear-
tbreaking downfall from intra-state
The Spartans., under second-year head
coach George Perles, dismantled the
Wolverines, 19-7, yesterday afternoon
before 105,617 Michigan Stadium fans.
FOR MICHIGAN, the loss took} on
even grimmer proportions as starting
quarterback Jim Harbaugh suffered a
broken arm and is out for the remain-
der of the season.
It was the first time a Spartan head
football coach had won his inaugural
game in Ann Arbor. Michigan State is
now 2-3 in 1984, 1-2 in the Big Ten.
Michigan falls to 3-2, 2-1 in the con-
"This is the best feeling I've ever had
in my life. I'm so high," said a jubilant
Mark Napolitan, MSU's senior center
and a Trenton native.
LOCKING heads with Napolitan all
game long was Michigan's fifth-year
senior inside linebacker, Tim Ander-
son. "It was worse than anything you can
imagine. Right ,now I'm pretty
depressed," said Anderson, who went
to Ann Arbor Pioneer high school.
"We'd (the seniors) like to go out on a
high note, go out with a bang. We'd like
to go out with bragging rights of the
state," concluded Anderson.
In Anderson's first four years as a
Wolverine, Michigan had handled the
Spartans with ease, especially in last
year's 42-0 annihilation in East Lan-
sing. But in 1984, it was not to be.
MICHIGAN received the opening
kickoff, but the offense stalled after
picking up one first down. Monte Rob-
bins punted 41 yards and MSU made a
fair catch to start its opening drive at
its own 15-yard line.
The Spartans promptly marched 85
yards on 14 plays in 6:45, scoring on a
one-yard dive by tailback Carl Butler.
,Quarterback Dave Yarema accounted
for 65 pf those yards, completing all five
of his passes in the drive. In that streak,
Yarema completed three third down
passes - two to reserve tight end Veno
Belk and one to tailback Bobby Morse.
"We know it's important to get out of
the blocks fast," said Morse, a
sophomore from Muskegon. "Our goal
was to score first, and we did."
RALF Mojsiejenko nailed the extra
point and MSU was out of the blocks
with a 7-0 lead.
Neither the Wolverines nor the Spar-
tans could get anything going on their
next - possessions, trading punts.
Following its third possession in which
it failed to sustain'a drive, Michigan
went once again to punt formation.
Robbins booted a high, 44-yard punt,
which tailback Morse fielded at the
Spartan 13-yard line. Morse' easily
eluded Michigan's Eric Kattus and took
off toward the Spartan sideline, along
which he raced unmolested for a touch-
down. The 87-yard jaunt stunned the
Wolverines and put the Spartans in
command at 13-0. Mojsiejenko missed
the extra-point attempt.
"THAT I don't accept," said a
displeased Bo Sdhembechler about the
punt return. "That's one thing I won't
be a nice guy about. That's just
"We had a return left on," said Morse
about the play which was returned up"
the left side by design. "At the 40-yard
line I saw (Brad) Cochran, but there
was no way I was going to let him get
me after running that far."
Mojsiejenko's ensuing kickoff was
downed by Jamie Morris in the en-
dzone. But once again the Wolverines
were forced to punt after three plays
failed to yield a first down.

The issues surrounding the Voter's Choice
proposal on the November ballot boil down to
Who should set Michigan's tax levels - the
voters or their elected representatives?
VOTER'S CHOICE, designated as Proposal
C on the ballot, would roll back all state and
local taxes and fees to their Dec. 31, 1981 levels.
Any future tax increases would have to go.
Voters would also decide on any state fee
hikes unless they were first approved by four-
fifths of the state's representatives and
senators. And non-resident income tax would
be limited to one half of one percent.
The proposal would also require that ballots
describe the tax, how much money it will raise,
where the money will be spent, and when the
The impetus behind the ballot question stems
from a growing anti-tax sentiment in
Michigan's southeastern communities that last
fall led to the recalls of Sen. Phillip Mastin (D-
Pontiac) and Sen. David Serotkin (D-Mt.
Clemens). Both men voted for a temporary in-
come tax increase of 38 percent in 1983.
THE PROPOSAL would lower personal in-
come taxes from 5.35 to 4.6 percent. Supporters
of Voter's Choice, led by a group of 25 tax-
payer groups, say the measure would allow
voters to decide where their money should be
spent and hold legislators accountable for those
But Gov. James Blanchard, former gover-
nors, and other opponents of Voter's Choice say
the expected $1 billion drop in tax revenue
would block the state's road to economic
recovery and cancel plans to pay off the state's
debt by the end of 1985.
But more importantly, they fear the proposal
would destroy representative government in
this state by taking the responsibility for set-
ting tax levels out of the hands of elected of-

'M' glee club, band to
perform at World Series
By JERRY MUTH
Forget Toni- Tenille singing the National Anthem in Dodger
Stadium. Or Harry Caray singing "Take Me Out to the
Ballgame" in Chicago.
gWhen the Detroit Tigers play host to the World
Series, the Michigan Men's Glee club and the Michigan Mar-
ching Band will be performing for fans.
BOTH THE marching band and the glee club have been in-
vited to perform in pre-game ceremonies at the upcoming
World Series. The glee club will sing the National Anthem in
theirs Tiger Stadium debut while the marching band will put
on a one-half hour pre-game show as well as play the
National Anthem for a nationally televised game.
If the Tigers meet the Chicago Cubs in an I-94 World Series
showdown, the glee club will perform in game six on
Tuesday, October 16. The band, meanwhile, would play Wed-
nesday night for game number two.
IF, HOWEVER, the Tigers meet the San Diego Padres, then
the glee club and the marching band will both perform on
Sunday, October 14 in game number five of the series.
The opportunity for the glee club to sing in front of a
national television audience arose when the club's faculty
advisor, Dr. Jim Shortt, talked to Tigers General Manager
Jim Campbell. After Campbell pondered the idea, the glee
club received official notice Monday that they had been in-
vited to per rm.
Likewise, the band received their opportunity when Band
Director Eric Becher discussed the possibility with Lou
Matlin of the Tiger staff. Actually, according to Becher, the
band had received an invitation to play at a World Series
game last year, but the Tigers never won the division..Near
the end of this summer, however, with the Tigers rapidly ap-
proaching a pennant, Matlin and Becher talked again about
having the band perform in this year's series.
NEVER HAS the glee club had such an opportunity as the
World Series. The last time the club sang in Michigan
Stadium was more than five years, according to Club
President John Birchler.
For the band, however, big performances have become
almost routine. Pasadena's Rose Bowl, New Orleans' Sugar
Bowl, and even the Pontiac-hosted Super Bowl are all entries
on the band's travel log.
For everyone involved with the band and the glee club, the
World Series means excitement. Birchler says he was in
Shortt's office when the formal invitaton came. Birchler
described Shortt, an assistant to University President Harold
Shapiro, as "very excited" when the invitaton arrived for the
club to sing.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Young
people at a pre-game party near the
Purdue University campus threw rocks
and bottles at police early yesterday
and pulled a passing motorist from his
car and beat him.
Twenty people were arrested and two

hour disturbance at a party held before
today's Purdue-Ohio State football
