Illini in Bo's


Turnovers key in 26-18 victory

Right off the bat, Jack Trudeau knew he was in for a long,
long day.
On the first play of yesterday's Michigan-Illinois game,
Trudeau watched his pass bounce off Wolverine Kevin
Brooks and into the waiting hands of linebacker Rodney
Lyles at the Illinois 13-yard line.
IT WAS JUST the break Michigan needed to get back on
track in conference play. The 104,916 Wolverine watchers in
attendance were treated to a 26-18 victory over a respected
Illinois squad.
"I thought I had the tight end," said Trudeau of his first of
three interceptions," "but a guy tipped it and what are you
going to do. It was indication of how things were going
For the Wolverines, the "things" were going in the right
direction. They capitalized on four Illini turnovers (3 inter-
ceptions, one fumble) while committing none of the dreaded
errors themselves. That usually spells success for the stingy
"OUR DEFENSE really didn't shut them down, but slowed
them down and forced turnovers," said Bo Schembechler.
"If we don't turn the ball over, we are a hard team to beat."
Quarterback Chris Zurbrugg, though shaky in the passing
department, completing only five of 14, managed to steer
clear of interceptions and fumbles. Instead of risking Illini
steals by going to the air, Schembechler had Zurbrugg con-

centrate on the ground game, using the option successfully
for the first time this year.
"We used the option more this game," said Schembechler
"Some people think the option is conservative, but it opened
up the game for us. Having Zurbrugg in there allows us to do
some different things including the option."
THE OPTION sparked the Michigan offense right from the
start. After Lyles' interception, the Wolverines scored less
than a minute into the contest. Following an excellent fake to
fullback Eddie Garrett, Zurbrugg pitched to tailback Rick
Rogers at the two-yard line and it was a tight footrace with
Illinois linebacker Sam Ellsworth. But Rogers, who finished
the day with 93 yards, held on and crossed the corner of the
endzone, putting Michigan on top, 7-0, with the extra point
THERE WAS NO doubt in anyone's mind that Michigan
needed to light up the scoreboard first. It was icing on the
cake to do so with an exciting interception so early in the
"It (the interception) was very important," said defensive
captain Mike Mallory, who hauled in Trudeau's third errant
pass. "It got us rolling and really got the crowd jacked. That
helped us get into it."
Mallory and his defensive teammates continued the in-
spired play by holding the explosive Illini offense to a mere
field goal on its next possession. Illinois drove to the

breathing much more easily after
finally working out plans to bring Dr.
Ernest Boyer, president of the Carnegie
Foundation for the Advancement of
Teaching, to campus on Tuesday.
Boyer, former U.S. Commisioner of
Education, was originally scheduled to
speak at 7 p.m. that evening, however
the time was changed to 4 p.m. after
communication problems between the
LSA Student Government (LSA-SG) and
Boyer's agent nearly cancelled the ap-
pearance altogether.
THE UNIVERSITY community has

pearance for a long time, said LSA-SG
coordinator Lisa Philipsborn. Boyer is
a respected educator, and his decisions
and opinions on education are respec-
ted by many in the University, she said.
According to Eric Berman, LSA-SG
president, agent Gary Much of The
Greater Talent Network of New York
asked that the speech be changed to 4
p.m. so Boyer could make a scheduled
airline flight. The LSA-SG refused, and
assumed the original time would still be
valid due to a contract signed between
the LSA-SG and the Talent Network.
However the Network thought the
event had been rescheduled and did not

'U' to, stock

suicide pills

Wayne Christensen / DAILY
Clocks should be set back one hour today to mark the end of Daylight
Savings Time..

The Brown University students who
two weeks ago led their student body in
asking the school to stockpile cyanide
pills will announce tomorrow a list of at
least fourteen other schools where
similar propositions may be in-
troduced, including the University of
"Brown is right," said Michigan
organizer Karen Mislewick, an LSA
senior. "We believe, like Brown studen-
ts, that nuclear war is suicide." The
Brown proposal asked the university's
health service to issue cyanide to
students in the event of a nuclear war.
MISLEWICK said students
organizing a suicide pills campaign
here plan to pay for Jason Salzman, the
Brown student who helped lead the
campaign there, to fly to Ann Arbor on
Nov. 8 and speak to an English class.
Although the campaign is getting un-
derway slowly, it is gaining momentum
elsewhere. At the University of
Colorado students will vote Tuesday

and Wednesday on a proposal similar to
the one passed at Brown.
Friday organizers of the national
Students Against Nuclear Suicide
movement hope there will be rallies on
several campuses in support of the
stockpiling of cyanide.
"PROMOTION is ready and press
releases are going out," said John
Weissman, a campus organizer at Nor-
thwestern University and writer for
The Daily Northwestern. He said the
group there tried unsuccessfully to get
well-known speakers like Rev. Jesse
Jackson to appear at the Friday rally.
"Northwestern is a very staid, con-
tent community," Weissman said.
"Something has to inject en-
couragement. . . We've done all that we
can, but now it's up to the students to
get up off their rears."
The students at Brown are working
hard to promote their idea on other
campuses. They are offering help to
organizers both at Brown and

Six pack finalists
ES, THAT WAS A six pack of generic beer cans
you saw running through the Arboretum yesterday.
That's right, chasing Playboy Bunnies, Cyndi
Lauper look-a-likes, and several men dressed as
women. All were participating in the Halloween Fun Run,

cial success, but was struck by the large number of men
who ran dressed as women. The race began at Mary
Markley dormitory, wound through the Arb, and ended
back at the dorm.

THE JUDGE'S first inclination was to let the
uninvited tenants stay in a federal building. But in a
matter of weeks, their behavior so annoyed him that he or-
dered them evicted without notice. He could do that without
bringing charges of judicial abuse because it was a case of

Moore. "So I asked the GSA to evict them." GSA workers

Cash calls
JAY ROCKEFELLER, the wealthy governor of West
Virginia, has been flooded with telephone calls from
constituents asking for a "fair share" of his Senate cam-
paign war chest. The requests are a result of an editorial in
the Becklev Post-Herald. which urged voters to become

and called the editorial"the most despicable thing I have
ever seen in campaign journalism." The office received
about 100 telephone calls within a day concerning the
editorial, the spokesman said. Rockefeller faces
Republican John Raese in the Nov. 6 election for the Senate
seat being vacated by Democrat Jenning Randolph. Cam-
paign financial reports show Rockefeller has spent about
$9.28 million so far, about 12 times more than Raese. Post-
Herald Editor Walter Massey, who wrote the editorial, said
citizens who have a rich governor deserve to cash in on the
campaign process. "We've got to get the right focus on this
thing," Massey said. "Jay is wealthy and is spending
