The small, private atmosphere of
Brown University and the larger,
public atmosphere of the University
of Michigan provided quite a contrast
yesterday as the Today Show com-
pared the two schools.
University President Harold
Shapiro, University Athletic Director
Don Canham, former University
student activist Tom Hayden, and
several current students spoke about
their experiences on campus. They
joined Today Show host Bryant Gum-
bel for a discussion on academics and
activism here at the University.
Although the hour was early and a
cold 36 degrees, about 800 students
sacrificed precious hours of sleep to
come to the Diag and watch Shapiro
lead off the activities.
Shapiro said that the University's
traditional curriculum was in some
ways just as liberal as Brown's in-
dividualized one. It is "in some senses
traditional, but also vital, dynamic,

envious of his Brown counterpart's

Michigan loads up for powerful Hawkeye attack
By JOE EWING
L Of the 105 NCAA Division 1-A colleges that play foot-
11, all but two would kill to be ranked number one
going into this weekend. And as fate would have, those
two teams will square-off for that distinction tomorrow
when Michigan travels to Iowa.
The Hawkeyes are ranked number one in the
Associated Press sportswriters poll and the United
Press International coaches poll, while the Wolverines
top the USA Today and New York Times list, and are
second in AP. But neither team wants the lofty ratings.
"I'VE BEEN telling our guvs that we're number two
all along," said Iowa head coach Hayden Fry. At Iowa
don't think we know how to spell number one yet."
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler, who has never had
" '== :a::::::'4 :.: e i ii............i...............:... "i ..: .. :
Topranking is on the line
much faith in the polls or the pollsters, found no reason
to believe the claims that his team is the best in the!
country this week. When told earlier this week that his
squad topped the USA Today rankings, Schembechler
simply responded, "I don't read that paper." When
asked about his reaction to the Times rating, the 17 year
coach laughed, "I don't get that paper either."
Nonetheless, while both coaches may not think their
teams are the best in the country yet, both squads have
done a good job of proving they are among the best. The
ways Michigan and Iowa have gone about doing this,
however, is about as opposite as night and day.
THE HAWKEYES (5-0) have established themselves
through their offense, which is number one in the
nation in scoring (44.2 points per game) and have rolled
up nearly 470 yards in each contest. Setting the pace for
Iowa, of course, is All-American quarterback Chuck
:Long, who has picked apart his opponent's defenses with
elusive and patient style of play.
"He's basrally a pocket quarterback," noted
Michigan defensive coordinator Gary Moeller. "But he's
never in one spot. You can't tell your players that he'll
be standing right back there, because you have to be
able to find him as well as get to him."
Long's ability to evade the defensive rush has allowed
him to hit on 106 of 158 passes for 1288 yards and 15
touchdowns, among the best in the Big Ten and in
America. But while the fifth-year senior is probably in the
bad dreams of most defensive coordinators in the Big
Ten, the Hawkeyes have another offensive weapon that
has given Moeller nightmares lately.
"THAT RONNIE Harmon scares me the most," said
Moeller, referring to the Iowa's top running back who is a
double threat as both a rusher and receiver. "He's so
fast and has great moves. You can go to hit him in one
spot, and before you know it;it won't be there anymore.
He's going to be hard to stop."
In five games, Harmon has rub for 512 and five touch-

Ignoring recent threats by Univer-
sity Presdient Harold Shapiro, the
University Council yesterday reached
an informal consensus to continue
working on an alternative to last
year's controversial proposal for a
code of non-academic conduct.
Shapiro told students involved in the
code issue two weeks ago that he
would by-pass the council and submit
last year's code proposal to the Board
of Regents in January if the council
doesn't finish its work by then.
AS AN ALTERNATIVE, Shapiro
said he would not go to the regents if
as a "sign of good faith," the council
reconsidered the administration's
But yesterday, councilmembers
didn't discuss last year's code
Ben Long, an LSA junior and one of
three students on the council, said the
students didn't mention Shapiro's
warnings at the meeting, because
they will not consider the ad-
ministration's version of the code.
ARCHIE ANDREWS, director of
housing programs and one of three
administrators on the council, said
faculty and staff councilmembers
didn't bring up Shapiro's warnings
because "the only thing we know
about it is what we've read in the
Daily. President Shapiro hasn't ex-
pressed any concern to me, so we're
not even sure if he is concerned."
Long also said that while the council
cannot finish its work by January, he
felt the council could convince
Shapiro of its progress by sending
minutes of its meetings to him every
Opponents of last year's code
proposal said parts of the plan would
violate students' civil rights.

"IT'S A GOOD think I heard the

Simon became the 12th French
writer to win the award and the first
since 1964, when existentialist author
and playwright Jean-Paul Sarte
declined to accept his award.
Simon is a pioneer of the French
"nouveau roman," or "new novel"
style, which did away with convential
concepts of narrative structure, plot
and character development.
The Swedish academy said in its
citation that Simon's novels, many of
which draw on his experiences with
the Republican side in the Spanish
Civil War and as a cavalry officer in
World War II, combine "the poet's
and the painter's creativeness with a
deepened awareness of time in the
depiction of the human condition."
