Is passive smoking more
than a minor nuisance
or real annoyance?.
That's a broad and vague statement being made in a nation-wide, multi-
million dollar campaign by R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company.
For those who are fortunate not to have a chronic lung or heart disease,
who don't suffer from allergies, or who may not have an acute respiratory
illness that may be true. However, medical evidence is conclusive: passive
smoking is injurious to a large number of individuals - young and old, rich
and poor, and from any ethnic group.

Smoking is legal, no question about that.
But who has the right in a public place to
give some innocent bystander what the to-
bacco industry down plays as a "minor nui-
sance" or "real annoyance"?
According to the tobacco industry, smok-
ing is a personal decision made by adults.
Unfortunately the sidestream smoke from a
cigarette, pipe or cigar becomes public, af-
fecting everyone around, and therefore
should be subject to certain rules, controls
and laws to protect people in public places.
If we can have laws to protect us from
outdoor air pollution, why not for indoor
pollution from toxic tobacco smoke?

It was a good beginning, or rather

It was a good beginning, to put it
mildly, for freshman Gary Grant, and a
positive new beginning for forward

much time last season but is crucial to
this year's Michigan campaign.
"THEY WERE a good opponent and
a good test, but eventually we're gonna
face much better teams," said
Michigan coach Bill Frieder after last
night's 100-87 entrance examination.
Topping the Wolverine honor role was
Roy Tarpley, whose 22 points led
Michigan and whose 19 rebounds were a
Grant's 17 points gave him the
Wolverines' second highest grade, but
it was his defense of Yugoslavia's star
guard Drazen Petrovic for his first
Crisler Arena appearance.
"IN THE FIRST half, that number
four (Petrovic) got about six points in a
row," Frieder said, "but we put Gary
on him at the end of the first half and he
shut him down. That's why I left him on
Grant's defense was also one of the
keys to the Wolverine offense. Each of
his game-high three steals led to
Michigan points, the most notable of
which was a ferocious reverse dunk by
forward Rich Rellford late in the
A few minutes before that dunk, the
Wolverines were struggling.
Michigan's 51-35 halftime lead had been
cut to seven, 73-66 with nine minutes
remaining. Then with a little more than
eight minutes left in the game,
Petrovic's jumper from the left side cut
the Wolverine lead to 74-70.
BUT A TIME out, an injury to
Yugoslavian center Stojan Vrankovic
and a couple baskets from Grant put
the Wolverines back in control.
"I felt real good," Grant said. "I was
out there with an experienced ballclub
and I feel confident coming off a good
game going into the season."
Despite Grant's efforts, Petrovic still
scored 20 points. His backcourt mate
Nebojsa Zorkic stole the show, though
tossing in 26 points, all in the second
"ZORKIC WENT one on one (in the
second half)," said Yugoslav coach
Kresimir Cosic. "Before we only let
Petrovic go one on one."
Kosik said Petrovic's performance
might have been better, had the
'Yugoslavs not been playing their third
game in as many days. "He played o.k.,
but he got tired and tried to force (it),"
Cosic said fatigue was also a factor in
the rebounding battle, which the
Wolverines won 49-33.
"WE HAVE very good jumpers, but
we were nowhere today," said the fot-
mer Brigham Young player. "Michig~n
had the best rebounding we've seen
Henderson was one of the big reasons
for the Wolverine's dominance of the
boards. The 6-9 junior made his first e#-
trance at 12:21 of the first half and
promptly scored the first two of his i3
points after an offensive rebound, h$
first of eight total.
At that point the Wolverines led by
only six, 23-17 but about six minutes
later rattled off 11 straight points to ex-
pand the lead to 15, 42-27. R

The tobacco industry complains about nonsmokers: "Total strangers feel
free to abuse us verbally in public without warning." That's usually the re-
sult when someone assaults another, and being forced to breathe another's
tobacco smoke is considered assault.
The majority of Americans are nonsmokers. There's something wrong
with the system when those in the minority can have such a drastic effect
on the majority ... and that's what so often happens when smokers' sides-
tream smoke invades the public air space of nonsmokers.

What once looked like a breather on
Michigan's hockey schedule is now
another difficult two-game road trip as
the Wolverines take on red-hot Illinois-
Chicago this weekend.
The Flames, the CCHA's doormat the
past two seasons, are the surprise team
of the league. With a 7-3 record, UIC has
already won more games than in each
of the previous two years.
COACH VAL BELMONTE has turned
things around after 6-28-2 and 5-29-1
seasons and finds his team in second
place behind the 8-2 Michigan State
Spartans. The Spartans and Flames are
the only teams with overa
