an easy one,
takes care of
By ADAM MARTIN
Call it long and boring. Call it a slaughter. Call it a "it's
about time" victory. You can even call it a laugher. But you
may be wrong.
In Michigan's easiest victory since beginning its Big Ten
schedule, the Wolverines pressed and pushed and simply
dominated the Northwestern Wildcats, 82-45, last night at
BUT THE news wasn't all good. With 14 minutes left in the
second half and Michigan coasting at 50-27, Gary Grant
charged downcourt for an easy two after intercepting a pass
at the other end. Grant missed the lay-up however, and in the
process sprained his ankle. He may not play Saturday again-
st Wisconsin as a result.
Grant's departure was ironic because the sophomore came
into the game intending mainly to play tenacious defense,
and did so until the injury, totaling four steals and supplying
much of the spark for a Michigan defense that held North-
western to 19-49 (.387) from the field.
"We played with intensity and we played together defen-
. sively." said a pleased Bill Frieder. Michigan's head coach.
"Our defense created a lot of offensive situations for us, and
got our offense going."
THE DEFENSE rushed the Wolverines to a 8-0 run early in
the first half, thanks to a Grant steal to open the spurt and a
Grant-to-Joubert backdoor pass to finish it. Ahead 16-6,
Michigan never looked back and fiercely closed its jaws on
the Wildcat offense for the rest of the contest.
"They (the Wolverines) got us on a nice spurt in the begin-
ning," said Northwestern coach Rich Falk. "They were
pressuring the ball, taking our shooters out of sync, and
_ y making us ball handle. We have a young team and they got on
,us with quick, talented players."
"They took us out with their defense, and forced a lot of
THE MAN who converted several of Michigan's oppor-
tunities was Antoine Joubert. The junior guard nailed 9 of 14
from the floor for 19 points, finally giving the Michigan guard
spot a little recognition on offense after a recent drought.
Navy uses sonar to search
From AP and UPI
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla - NASA ex-
panded its search for Challenger's
wreckage yesterday and dispatched six
Navy ships to train sonars on the "missile
graveyard of the world" for large pieces of
the space shuttle. Crews brought back tons
of debris, including one of the shuttle's con-

35-miles south of Cape Canaveral and taken
to a hospital at nearby Patrick Air Force
Base. NASA spokesman Hugh Harris said
the bone and tissue fragment measured 4
inches by 6 inches by 1 inch.
NASA officials did not know what kind of
bone it was, and there was nothing to link to
Jim Mizell, a spokesman for the Kennedy
Space Center, called the area offshore "the

"IT WILL take some real expert to take
pieces and say it's not Snark, Redstone,
Pershing, Atlas and on and on," he said.
Snark and Redstone are two of the early
missiles of the 1950s.
Thousands of pounds of small pieces of
debris found floating on the sea were aboard
ships running search patterns over 8,000
square miles, northward from Cape

The University does not begin work on research
projects if the government has said the results will
be secret, a former University official said
Alfred Sussman, former vice-president for
research, said the University sometimes asks the
government to declassify information needed for
research so that the results of the project will not
IF THE GOVERNMENT refuses to declassify
the information, he said, the University does not
participate in the project because the University's
research guidelines prohibit classified research,
Sussman's remarks came after a Jan. 23 story
in the Daily incorrectly reporting that the Univer-
sity asks that projects be declassified after they
Alan Price, assistant vice president for resear-
ch, explained how the process works.
"WHEN WE SEND IN a proposal, the Depar-
tment of Defense may come in and say, 'you need
access to classified information.' "
The defense department then sends the Univer-
sity a form stating that researchers will need ac-
cess to classified material and whether the
material generated by the project will be

Blanchard lauds state comeback
LANSING (UPI) - Creating jobs and
rescuing Michigan from bankruptcy
- have been the keys to the state's
*comeback, Gov. James Blanchard
told legislators yesterday in a 65-
minute State of the State address.
"You, the members of this
Legislature, should take great pride
in this comeback," the governor said
in a speech that was interrupted by
applause 28 times. "You had the
foresight - the foresight and the guts
- to make this comeback possible."
Much of his speech concentrated on
the administration's efforts to create
*jobs and bring the state out of debt.
The annual address was delivered to a
joint session of the House and Senate.
Directors of state departments and
members of the Michigan Court of
Appeals and the state Supreme Court
Reaction to the speech was mixed,
with Senate Majority Leader John
Engler criticizing it for its length and
lack of substance, while both
Democratic and Republican House
'You, the members of this legislature,
should take great pride in this comeback.'
- Governor Blanchard
leaders were generally favorable.
The sharpest criticism came from
the 17-member Legisldtive Black
Caucus, which said the speech fell
short in human services areas. Black
lawmakers also criticized Blanchard
for poorly funding minority business
The lengthy speech, liberally
spinkled with the names of
Democratic and Republican
lawmakers who supported legislation
which the Democratic governor
favored, came a day after Blan-
chard's 90-minute television
"preview" of the address and
question - and - answer session with
reporters and TV viewers.
In both, Blanchard touted his new
plan to assure affordable education by
allowing parents to invest in a state-
run trust fund. Similar to the popular
individual retirement accounts, the
tax-free program will "separate
Michigan's higher education system
from the rest in the nation," Blan-
"This will not be a giveaway
program or an income redistribution
program," the governor told the ap-
plauding assembly. "It will be an in-
vestment program that does not
require additional state expen-
Blanchard did not repeat his call of
the previous two years of asking
colleges to freeze tuition, but he ap-
pealed to them to "practice restraint"
in setting tuitions. As for secondary
and elementary education, he called
for expanded student testing
programs, recommended that the
State Board of Education set up
voluntary school accreditation stan-
dards and proposed an increase in
funding for teacher training.
Tackling what is expected to be one
of the dominant issues of the
legislative session, Blanchard an-
nounced he is naming former Univer-
sity of Michigan President Robben
Fleming as his "designated represen-
tative" in adopting changes in the
state's liability system.

A bill set to go before the Public and
Mental Health Committee of the state
Senate next Tuesday calls upon all
governmental agencies- including
the University - to impose a policy
against smoking in Dublic areas.
The Michigan Clean Air Act, in-
troduced for the fourth time in five
years, requires state agencies to post
signs of designating non-smoking and
smoking areas beginning Jan. 1, 1987.
UNDER THE act, all private
businesses that receive state funds
would be required to adopt the policy
in 1988. All other businesses would be
included in 1989.
The University adiministration
currently is considering its own
smoking in the workplace policy, af-
ter deciding not to wait for the state to
"We recommended that we not wait
for the Michigan Clean Air Act," said.
Beatrice Kalisch, chairwoman of the
faculty Senate Assembly's Financial
Affairs Committee, which has been
given the task of drawing up the
IN ITS PRESENT FORM, THE
University's policy covers all of its
faculty administration and staff but
Assembly approved in principle the
fourth draft of the policy that would
ban smoking in "workplaces such as
offices, shops, laboratories, libraries,
auditoriums and patient care
facilities, except where space is not
shared with non-smokers and is fully
enclosed to passive smoke."
Smoking would also be prohibited its
public areas except where equal
facilities are available for both
smokers and non-smokers.
EVEN IF THE STATE legislators
adopt their measure, the University
could implement a stricter policy.
"So, if they (administrators) want
to ban smoking completely from
campus, they could do that," said
Barry Cargill, a legislative aide to
Sen. Vern Ehlers (R-Grand Rapids),
who co-sponsored the state's
The bill requires that non-smoking
areas be closest to sources of fresh air
and that people who are hypersen-
sitive to smoke be given special con-
INSTITUTIONS THAT FAIL to en-
force the regulations face a $100 fine
for the first offense and $500 for each
incident thereafter. Individuals who
break the policy can also be fined.
