coach Bill Frieder denied that his club's
1 81-65 victory over Purdue at Mackey
Arena yesterday was any more
significant to him than any other win on
the road. Even if it was his first victory
ever over the Boilermakers.
"I never look at the personal side of it
and I don't believe in jinxes," said
Frieder, referring to Michigan's 0-8
record against Purdue since he took
over the Wolverine helm in 1980.
DON'T BELIEVE a word of it.
"(Frieder) said he wanted this one.
He really wanted it," said Garde
Thompson, who had a career-high 13
points. "We more or less won it for
The 16-point margin of victory did not
reflect how tight the contest was for 28
minutes. Michigan led by no more than
six during that period as the teams
traded baskets and the Boilermakers
did a good job in the rebounding depar-

PEKING - China's top military of-

American counterpart with a pledge to
work for peace and a warning that
Washington should treat seriously "ob-
stacles" to better relations such as
In a glittering banquet for Gen. John
Vessey, chairman of the U.S. Joint
Chiefs of Staff, Chinese Chief of
General Staff Yang Dezhi said he
looked forward to talks that would ex-
pand relations between the two armed
In addition to Yang, the Chinese side
included Deputy Chief of General Staff
Zhang Zhewg, who greeted Vessey with
a warm hug, and representatives of the
navy, army, and air force.
Vessey, who arrived for a one-week
visit early today, stood at attention with
Yang atop a red-carpeted podium,
saluting while the national anthems of
both countries were played.
Vessey, 63, the first chairman of the
Joint Chiefs to visit China since the
communist revolution in 1949, arrived
in Peking yesterday for a one-week
familiarization tour that aides said
could include talks on an unpreceden-.
ted port call by an American warship.
Chinese military chief
wants better relations
The Washington Post quoted Reagan
administration officials as saying
China has agreed to buy submarine-
hunting sonars, Mark-46 torpedoes, gas
turbine engines, and the Phalanx rapid-
fire gun designed to down anti-ship,
Neither Chinese nor American of-
ficials would confirm a report that
three U.S. Navy destroyers would make
a port call in Shanghai in April. It would
be the first such call by an American
warship in more than 35 years.
Without mentioning Taiwan by name,
Yang said in a banquet toast that ob-
stacles remained in the way of stronger
"Naturally, as it is known to all, there
are still difficulties and obstacles on the
way of developing the relations bet-
ween our two countries," said the 76-
year-old Yang, who commanded
Chinese forces against U.S.-led U.N.
troops in the Korean War.
"This should be treated seriously. We
believe that so long as we all abide by
the principles of every Sino-U.S. joint
communique, work hard and sound,
and solve concrete problems conscien-
tiously, we'll be able to overcome dif-
ficulties gradually, eliminate obstacles,
and the relations between our two coun-
tries will develop soundly, thus bringing
about the growth of relations between
our two armed forces."
Michigan forward Butch Wade snags one of his five rebounds in yesterday's
game as Purdue's Todd Mitchell tries to avoid a foul. Michigan rolled to an
81-65 victory over the Boilermakers.
WASHINGTON (UPI) - President
Reagan is losing the battle to hold
together his Cabinet and staff for his
second team with the inroads of official
life taking their toll.
Unlike President Nixon, who called
for resignations from his entire Cabinet
after he won re-election in 1972, Reagan
passed the word that he wanted all
members to stay on deck. At the time,
he also told Treasury Secretary Donald
Regan, who is moving on to be White
House chief of staff, that he wanted to
"shackle" him to his desk.
BUT WHETHER he wanted it or not,
Reagan's closely knit team is suffering
the same fate as Nixon's second-term
sing in Cab
Cabinet with big changes in the works.
Nixon's chief of staff H.R. Haldeman
told the Cabinet the morning after the
election in 1972 "you're all a bunch of
burned out volcanos" and demanded
their resignations, much to the shock of
several of them who had been Nixon's
surrogates on the re-election campaign
trail for many months. Several were
kept on, however.
By the time Nixon was forced to
resign from office in August 1974 due to
the Watergate scandal, there were only
two officials who had been in his
original Cabinet Interior Secretary
Rogers C.B. Morton and Agriculture
Secretary Earl Butz.
SOME OF THE familiar faces stayed
on with Henry Kissinger, who had been
national security affairs adviser,
becoming secretary of state in Nixon's
short-lived second term.
George Shultz, currently secretary of.
state, served in two Cabinet posts
during the Nixon years, starting as
labor secretary, and moving on to be
Treasury secretary when John Con-
nally vacated the job.
The speed of the dramatic turnover of
the Reagan Cabinet in the past few
weeks has stunned Washington. There
are indications more shoes will be

Morris said he will address recent

backlash against the sexual revolution
has been a driving force behind the new
conservatism that has swept the count-
ry as women grow disillusioned with
their sexual freedom of the past 20
years, sex researchers Shere Hite said
The continuing double standard that
accepts sexual freedom for men but
stigmatizes women as tramps, has
caused many women to look back to the
"good old days," Hite told the Society
for the Scientific Study of Sex.
"THE DIRECTION (of the 1980s) I
see is people rushing back to past roles
because of the current situation," Hite

yesterday. At right is her husband, Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), the main speaker at the event.
S ENIOR CHIEF Petty Officer Fletcher Tucker ran
his fingertips along his cleanshaven cheeks and
said, "My wife and two kids back East have never
seen me without it." Tucker's beard of 17 years had
a close encounter with a sharp razor recently. Since Jan. 1,
naval personnel have been getting shipshape by shaving
their beards-although they can keep their mustaches-to
comply with new regulations. Tucker, a 24-year Navy man
attached to the chaplain's office at North Island Naval Air
Station in San Diego, spoke of his late beard like a lost
friend. "It was well kept," he said. "It met all uniform
regulations. It complied with grooming standards. I miss it.
"I feel like I'm being punished for something and I don't
know what." Many Navy people say the new grooming
"But the men never really went along with that." Zumwalt
is now retired. Not only are beards disappearing but Navy
personnel now eat in a "mess hall" again-not a "dining
facility." It's all part of a return to earlier traditions. Navy
barbers used to do a brisk business keeping beards trim-
med to conform with grooming code. "We lost a lot of
business when Zumwalt sent out his Z-gram back in the
1970s permitting long hair. Now we'll lose the beard-
trimming business," said Art Giverson, one of 21 civilian
barbers in three post exchanges at the 32nd Street Naval
Base, where many of San Diego's 85,000 active duty sailors
are based. "But haircuts are back in. I like that."
T HE FIRST Family has a dirty little secret: Lucky, the
popular little puppy Nancy Reagan gave her husband
before Christmas, still isn't White House-broken. "That,"
sniffed spokeswoman Sheila Tate, "is an unauthorized
leak." Mrs. Reagan's press secretary refused to discuss the
Pooper Scooper" and sample packs of "Puppy Piddle
Pads." Ralson-Purina has informed the White House the
feed manufacturer plans to bring out a new line of Lucky
dog food in honor of the presidential pooch. Officials said
the Reagans turned down an offer of a free lifetime supply
of the dog food but agreed to let Lucky do the official
tasting. The White House always has been hush-hush about
its Auto-Pens, the machines that sign the president's and
first lady's names to routine correspondence. But it was
learned that Lucky, too, has an automated signature. In
response to a virtual avalanche of mail addressed to the
dog, one source said, Lucky was taken over to the
correspondence unit last week to have her paw print copied.
Now, when the White House receives mail addressed to the
dog from the nation's school children, it sends back a signed
photograph of the black French sheep dog.
On the inside...
insisting on anonymity for fear of invoking the Reagans'
wrath, said the president isn't trying to sweep the problem
under the rug. "We have a professional trainer coming in
once a week," the informant whispered. Lucky reportedly
is not a chronic violator; she simply isn't very reliable yet.
"It was a problem at Camp David over the weekend," one
source said. "The dog messed up the rug in Aspen Lodge."
