Women hoopsters bomb Irish,


The eleven thousand people who sat in Crisler
Arena Saturday, hoping to see some quality basket-
ball, were a day early. En route to a 75-64 win over
Notre Dame, the Michigan women's basketball team
played a second half on Sunday that men's coach Bill
Frieder would have been proud of.
The final stanza began with the Wolverines
trailing, 30-25. Three and a half minutes later,
Michigan led 39-32, having hit seven out of eight shot-
s. As a team, the Wolverines sank a blistering 74 per-
cent of their field goal attempts in the second half.
The Fighting Irish found themselves down by as
much as 16 points before the buzzer mercifully ended
the game.
successfully changed his game plan at halftime,
moving toward a running offense.
"(Notre Dame) caught on to some of our plays, so
we used some new plays in the second half," Van De
Wege said. "I told them that they were not

aggressive. If they got more aggressive they would
win the game."
Freshman forward Lorea Feldman quickly took
out her aggression on the Irish, scoring eight of her 15
points in the first two and a half minutes after inter-
mission. Feldman and teammate Wendy Bradetich,
the game's high scorer with 24 points, began sinking
shots from all over the floor.
Guard Kelly Benintendi, another freshman starter'
for Michigan, turned the game into a rout, hitting five
shots from medium range in a 12-2 Wolverine spurt,
making the score 59-45, with seven minutes to play.
IN THE FIRST half, Notre Dame had taken advan-
tage of its edge in height to score some easy hoops.
Forwards Carrie Bates (6-1) and Sandy Botham (6-2)
camped out in the paint and built a lead with tur-
naround shots. Michigan did not appear able to stop
the Irish inside game.
But Van De Wege devised a defensive scheme to
shut down Bates and Botham in the last stanza. "We
decided to mix a man-to-man with a zone. It worked

because we got great sagging help from the weak
side," he said.
Bradetich and center Diana Wiley caught Notre
Dame by surprise with the new defensive alignment;
each one grabbed three steals.. The Wolverines also
began to control the boards, outrebounding the Irish
18-8 in the second twenty minutes.
MICHIGAN'S BALANCED offense helped all five
starters into double figures. Shooting guard Orethia
Lilly scored 14 points, and Benintendi and Wiley ad-
ded 10 each.
The crowd of 270 was surprised by the Wolverine's
sizzling shooting, but the coach wasn't. "The key for
us was running. I felt we could run with them. Once
we began running, good shots opened up," said Van
De Wege.
"We were fortunate to be down by only five at the
half. I told the team that if they came out and played
hard, they would make things happen."
Michigan upped its record to 2-1 on the season,
while Notre Dame fell to 1-3. The Wolverines travel to
Central Michigan tonight for a game at 7:00 p.m.

cruise missile engines for the Navy and
today builds all of the engines for
missiles manufactured by Boeing and
General Dynamics, Alexander said.
Williams also produces some engines
for industrial use and non-military air-
craft, according to company
spokesman Pavid Jolivette.
JOLIVET'TE said the firm's officers
support mutual disarmament but
refuse to discuss defense contracts with

"Our policy has been to protect our
property and workers through prudent
and legal means," he said.
The protesters are calling upon Willams
to convert production to non-military
projects, Alexander said, adding that
the firm received no money from the
U.S. Department of Defense before
MIRIAM HALL Grinnell, 72 of near-
by Waterford Twp., said that is is dif-
ficult to gauge the impact the demon-
strations have on the firm's employees

and area residents.
"The local people are sympathetic
but sensitive to their neighbors who
work here, so they won't say, anything,"
she said.
But Dorothy Whitmarsh of Ann Arbor
who was arrested a second time yester-
day, said "there was a real sense of
things having moved along the way we
had wanted them to."
POLICE officers gently escorted
demonstrators away, Whitmarsh said.
Only two protesters refused to
cooperate with police officiers by sit-
ting down on the driveway. They had to;
be carried away.
Whitmarsh said the demonstrators
expect the circuit court to find them in

civil contempt of the court injunction, a
charge which imposes an indefinite
sentence until the protesters promise
not to return to Williams.
In June five protesters arrested at
Williams were charged with civil con-
tempt. Rather than agreeing not to
return to the site of the facility, they
fasted for 11 days until the firm's owner
asked that they be released.
The other demonstrators yesterday
included Ann Arbor residents Doug
Hamm and Barbara Wetula, as well as
David Braun of Ann Arbor Twp., Jeff
Smith of Grand Rapids, Dean Abbott of
Detroit and Carfon Foltz of Pontiac.

Protestors discuss activism

(Continued from Page 1)
EMPLOYEES' reaction to the
group's presence has been mixed,
;Dougherty said.
"We hear everything from 'Keep up
the good work' to being called com-
munists. But an awful lot of the workers
try to pretend that you're not there," he
To date, four employees have quit
because of the cruise missile project,
Dougherty said. The firm employs
about 1,450 people.
"THERE'S good people at Williams,
people who just want to do their jobs
and we respect that. But I think it's im-
portant to realize the effects of all the
jobs that we do," said Maria Ringo, one
of the five University students among
those arrested yesterday.
Ringo, an LSA senior, watched her
sister Anita go to jail for civil
disobedience at Williams last year. Af-
ter working extensively with local
disarmament groups, Maria decided
she had to follow her sister's footsteps.
"I think my sister really put it well
last year when she said that she had to
go from saying 'no' to being 'no,' " she
"I'M TIRED OF writing my
congressional representatives. I'm
tired of rallies and marches and words.
What I'd love to do out at Williams is
really disrupt business as usual," she
Ringo said her decision to block the
entrance to Williams drew everything
from classmates' praise to comments
like "You're lucky you live in the
United States. If you lived in Russia,
you wouldn't be able to do this."
Coming from a family which has long
been involved in protest movements -
her parents participated in Vietnam
War protests and the farm workers'
struggle - Ringo said it is her duty to
fight the injustices she sees.
"WHATEVER I do in my life to make
money is secondary to what I've got to
do all my life to resist the nuclear mad-
ness," Ringo said. She is a candidate
for a Bachelor of General Studies
degree in community activism.
But for many, making the decision to
commit an act of civil disobedience
isn't so easy. Because it is a non-violent
form of protest, activists must agree to
submit passively to arrest and avoid
violent confrontations. They must ac-
cept what a criminal record could mean
to their careers. Some must face disap-
proval from family and friends. And
they must be willing to face prison.
For University graduate student Brian
Larkin, making the decision to par-
ticipate in yesterday's protest took
almost a year. As a local canvass direc-
tor for the Committee for a Sane
Nuclear Policy (SANE), civil
disobedience could jeopardize Larkin's
ability to fight the stockpiling of
weapons through legislative channels.
But he said he must take that risk.
"I FEEL the need to state more
clearly my feeling that we need to stop
building nuclear weapons," he said last
mu wek- "Mont nf the dialogue (in

ts the people who build these weapons,"'
he said.
IF HE GOES to jail, Larkin said he
will work for improvements in the
prison environment.
Protestors at Williams International
in the past have been sent to Oakland
County Prison in Pontiac. That in-
stitution, like most prisons across the
country, is so overcrowded that one out
of four prisoners is typically forced to
sleep on a cold floor withouta blanket.
The lights are on all day. A mist of
cigarette smoke usually fills the jail
As part of their civil disobedience,
protestors, including Residential
College junior Mike O'Neill, do not
cooperate when police ask routine
questions about their sexual preference
and previous criminal records.
THOUGH THE blockade yesterday
was the first time O'Neill has been
arrested for civil disobedience, he has
protested weapons research before.
Last fall he participated in the sit-in
at University Electrical and Computer
Engineering Prof. Thomas Senior's
radiation laboratory to protest defense-
funded research being conducted there.
O'Neill said he has been fighting
military research on campus ever since
freshman orientation, when he read
about a multi-million dollar contract
the University won from the Air Force.
After the Williams protest, O'Neill said
he will turn his attention back to
weapons research on campus.
"PEOPLE DON'T realize the impact
civil disobedience will have on their life
and how it kind of sets you up to have
the energy to do more," he said last
Residential College junior Ken Jan-
not, who was also arrested yesterday
said civil disobedience is the only way
to focus the public's attention on
nuclear disarmament.
"There's only so much that can be
done within the system like writing let-
ters - and you still aren't listened to,"
he said.
JANNOT SAID he has not written let-
ters or participated in marches or
rallies. For him, yesterday's action was
as much an effort to "get my feet wet"
as it was an attempt to change attitudes
at Williams.
More and more students, like Jannot,
say they are looking toward civil
disobedience as a way to express their
concern about the build-up of nuclear
weapons. Many say fears that the
United States will become openly in-
volved militarily in Nicaragua have
impelled them to take action.
This fall an "affinity" group for sup-
porters of civil disobedience formed on
campus. Currently, there are about 30
members. The group is patterned after
the Ann Arbor Peace Community,
another affinity group.
LSA senior Lori Peters said she
joined the campus group after collec-
ting information on nuclear weapons
for a couple of years.
"I've got to a noint where it's useless
