COLUMBIA, S.C. - The Wolverines
discovered the pleasure of beating the
'Cocks senseless Saturday when they
whipped South Carolina, 34-3, for their
second win of the 1985 season and
biggest non-conference road victory
in 45 years.
A potent offensive attack and a
defense that stiffed the number 15
Gamecocks' option offense were the
keys to the victory and changed what
was supposed to be a close game into
a blowout. The margin of victory was
the largest Michigan has enjoyed in
an away, non-Big Ten contest since
1940, when they trounced California,
THE WOLVERINES racked up 507
.total yards while holding the 'Cocks to
a mere 202 yards. The groundgame,
which accounted for most of
.Michigan's offense in last week's win
over Notre Dame, again was a big
factor, gaining 324 yards.
Nonetheless, only 85 of those yards
came in the first half as the
Wolverines had some trouble han-
dling South Carolina's defensive
"We were spotty in the first half,"
said Michigan head coach Bo Schem-
bechler. "We didn't block quite as
well as I would have liked."
Part of the reason for the blocking
problem was the Wolverines' loss of
center Bob Tabachino, who left the
contest early in the first quarter with
an injured calf muscle.
BUT ONCE the offense adjusted to
new center Andy Borowski and wore
down the smaller South Carolina
defensive line in the second half, they
were off to the races, gaining 239
second-half yards on the ground.

tune of 324 yards rushing and a 17 minute edge in time of possession.

President Paul Josephson this after-
noon nominated LSA junior Phillip
Cole for the position of executive vice
president of the assembly.
Cole's nomination will be con-
sidered by the entire assembly at its
regular meeting Tuesday night. A
two-thirds vote of approval is
required for him to replace Micky
Feusse, who resigned fron the position
Josephson said he chose Cole over
longtime MSA member Bruce
Belcher - the only other candidate
still under consideration - because
he thought Cole would be more effec-
tive in getting the assembly moving.

committee chairs off and running,

The University's Board of Regents
this afternoon voted unanimously to
divest an additional $4.5 million in in-
vestments in companies that do
business in South Africa.
The University, in 1983, divested
$45 million or 90 percent of its $50
million in South Africa-related in-
vestments it then held. This after-
noon's decision brings the Univer-
sity's total divestiture to 99 percent of
its original holdings.
THE REGENTS also decided this
afternoon to use the remaining
$500,000 in investments as a base for
its appeal of a recent court ruling
upholding a 1982 state law mandating
state schools to divest.
The University claims that the law
violates its constitutional autonomy
from the state. But Ingham County
Circuit Court Judge Caroline Stell last
month ruled that autonomy only ap-
olied to educational matters.
"IT MUST be known that the merr-
bers of this board in no way support
the system of apartheid," he said, in
voting for the resolution put forth by
Regent Neal Nielsen (R-Brighton).

When Billy Frye heads south this
spring, he will take his bow ties and
his genteel Southern style with him.
But the impact the vice president
for academic affairs and provost has
had on the University will endure.
"HE'S HAD A pervasive influence
on policy; he has helped us in getting
through some very rough times,"
University President Harold Shapiro
said last night. "He has played a
critical role at the University over the
past five years, and he will be missed
both personally and professionally."
Frye will leave the University in
May to assume the position of dean of
the arts and sciences graduate school
.and vice president of research at
Emory University in Atlanta, his

as a professional administrator or

was indeed an adept administrator as
he undertook to redirect $20 million of
the University general fund budget
toward "high priority" areas.
The plan, unveiled in 1982, was
designed to render the University
"smaller but better." It called for in-
tensive reviews of the University's
smaller schools and liberal arts
programs which resulted in major
cuts in the schools of art, education
and natural resources.
The $20 million was earmarked to
be redirected to high priority areas
such as faculty salaries, graduate
student aid, and a push to modernize

The green bikes are coming back.
They'll be on campus early this

The new bikes, like the two-

designed for communal use. Each of
the 16 bikes distributed last spring
was equipped with information on

DALSTON HAS been responsible

patients per year and employ more
