The editor of the student newspaper
at Wayne State University reversed
her ban on military recruiting adver-
tisements Friday, ending a two-
month-long controversy in which she
nearly lost her job.
After editor Patricia Maceroni an-
nounced the end of the ban, the
university's Student Newspaper
Publications Board ended its attempt
to fire her.
"I DID LOSE a little bit," said the
editor of The South End. "Some
people might see it as a cop-out, but I
see it as a change of strategy."
She said low morale at the
newspaper and a concern among staff
members about the paper's future
prompted her to end the controversy.
Maceroni said her new strategy will
be to run "counter-ads" about the
military next to the recruiting adver-
tisements. Although the initial com-
mentaries will be put in by the staff,
Maceroni said yesterday that the
student government and several
faculty members might sponsor ad-
vertisements opposing U.S. military
AT ITS MEETING this week, the
university's Board of Governors will
be asked to revise the newspaper's
charter to remove ambiguities which
surfaced during the controversy.
One provision of the charter gives
the editor control over the contents of
the newspaper, while another gives .:
the publications board authority over
all of the paper's financial affairs.
"It has got to be revised," Maceroni
said of the charter, "I still believe I
had every right to do what I did.."

What started as a comedy of errors
for MichiganSaturday ended up as a
tragedy for the Indiana Hoosiers as
the Wolverines overcame first half
mistakes and exploded in the second
half for a 42-15 victory.
Jamie Morris and Jim Harbaugh
both turned in career bests to spark
the offense to its best showing since
1983 (604 total yards). The defense, af-
ter a rough first half, returned to form
in time to hold the Hoosiers in check.
IN THE FIRST half, Michigan
seemed determined to throw a pre-
Halloween party for the Homecoming
crowd of 105,629, playing its
variations of classic party games
such as Bobbing for Footballs and Pin
the Penalty on the Lineman.
After Indiana was forced to punt on
its first possession, Michigan took
over on its one-yard line. Two plays
later, Gerald White fumbled at the 19-
yard line after an 11-yard pass play.
Leonard Bell recovered for Indiana,
and after one first down, the Hoosiers
cashed in on a 25-yard field goal by
The worst was yet to come, though.
On the evening kickoff, freshman
John Kolesar couldn't decide if he
should down the ball or run it back
and ended up downing the- ball on the
MORRIS THEN compounded
Kolesar's mistake by fumbling on fir-
st down. Bell again recovered for the
Hoosiers, and on the first play,
Damon Sweazy took a Steve Bradley
pitch and ral untouched into the en-
dzone for a three-yard touchdown.
The extra point attempt was foiled by
a bad snap, but with only 6:31 gone in
the game, Michigan trailed 9-0.
"I though it was going to be a
disastrous start," said Michigan
coach Bo Schembechler. "The
mistakes early in the game could
have put us out of it."
The rest of the first half was more of
the same. The offense was able to put
two scoring drives together, capped
by Morris touchdown runs of eight
and 17 yards, but for most of both
periods, it was one step forward and
two steps back.
A HOLDING penalty wiped out a 38-
yard pass play from Harbaugh to
Morris on one drive, Harbaugh fum-
bled under pressure for a 13-yard loss
on the same series, and a sack good
for a 12-yard loss ended another
scoring chance. Throughout the half,
two things - last week's loss to Iowa
and the patched together offensive
line - kept the Wolverines from
playing with consistency.

Members of a local community
group say they will propose a ban on
the sale and possession of handguns in
Ann Arbor during the public commen-
ts session of tonight's City Council
Citizens for Handgun Control will
propose a new city ordinance that, if
approved, would prohibit the sale of
handguns within city limits and would
require Ann Arbor residents to sell or
turn into police all handguns they
currently own except those that are
considered antique or permanently
Therordinance would exclude police
officers and other law enforcement
DONALD DUQUETTE, chairman
of the organization and a law
professor at the University, said the
ban is necessary to keep "the peace in
our time in our town."
"We've got such a good police force
(in Ann Arbor), that rather than
reaching for your .38, you could reach
for the phone and dial 911 and a
trained police officer will be at your
door in minutes," continued Duquet-
te, who also directs the Child Ad-

LSA may give ROTC credits
By NANCY DRISCOLL
An LSA panel is studying the possibility of rescinding a
15-year-old policy which prohibits ROTC students from
receiving LSA credit for military education courses.
While military courses count for varying amounts of
credit in most of the University's schools and colleges,
ROTC students in LSA earn no credit toward graduation
for the 12 credit hours of class they are required to take.
LSA'S CURRICULUM committee has established a
three-member subcommittee which is "looking into every
aspect" of the LSA policy, and "that includes issues that
are relevant to academic quality of the courses," accor-
ding to classical studies Prof. Bruce Frier, a member of
The issue has been raised by the Military Officers
Education Program Committee (MOEPC), the liaison
organization between the University and the ROTC
"At this point LSA is distinctly alone so that is why it
seems appropriate to review it," aid Leland Quacken-
bush, assistant dean of the engineering college and
chairman of MOEPC.
"WE REVIEWED the whole history of ROTC credit and
saw some possible ways credit might be given,"
According to Lt. Col. Steve Gerlach, chairman of the
Army program, "The problem is for the cadets. They're
enrolled in military science classes and they've elected to
earn a commission as a 2nd lieutenant in the army and to
