WASHINGTON (AP)-A So-
viet nuclear-powered submarine
crippled by fire began slowly
moving again on its own power
yesterday in the Atlantic, then
hooked up a line to a sister vessel
that towed it away from the U.S.
coast , the Pentagon said.
The fire that killed three
crewmen Friday appeared to be out
as the ailing vessel carrying
ballistic missiles limped away to
the northeast from its sentry post
east of Bermuda, - Pentagon
spokesman Maj. Larry Icenogle
The sub began moving early
yesterday afternoon under its own
power at two nautical miles per
hour, Icenogle said. But a little
more than four hours later, around 5
p.m., he reported, "the Soviet sub
is under tow by the Soviet
merchant vessel Krasnogvardeysk."
A PENTAGON official, who.
asked not to be quoted by name,
said earlier that many of the sub's
crew were evacuated to nearby
Soviet merchant ships. A U.S.
Navy tug was in the area ready to
assist if needed.
"As near as we can tell, the fire
has been extinguished," said the

The sub normally carries about
120 people, and a Pentagon official
said, "We know they have taken. a
lot of them (the crew) off, but we
don't have a precise number."
U.S. P-3 Orion reconnaissance
planes, which have been flying over
the sub 552 miles east of Bermuda
through the weekend, reported that
smoke stopped spewing from the
vessel yesterday morning and no
personnel were observed on the deck
of the sub, Icenogle said.
President Reagan, who learned of
the fire Saturday in a message from
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev,
offered the U.S. government's
assistance, but the White House
said yesterday that the Soviets have
not asked for help.
Tass, the official Soviet news
agency, reported that fire broke out
on the sub 620 miles northeast of

MADISON - Saturday night's 34-17
Wolverine romp over Wisconsin in Camp
Randall Stadium wasn't boring, but it was a
typical Michigan victory.
Plain and simple, it was a vintage Michigan
performance, complete with a coaching milestone
for head coach Bo Schembechler, a record passing
performance for quarterback Jim Harbaugh, and a
hard-nosed effort by the defense.
THE WOLVERINES conducted their
business in front of 75,898 obnoxious Badger
tans looking for their team to pull off an upset
like the one in 1981, when Wisconsin disgraced
No. 1-ranked Michigan 21-14 in Madison.
Michigan, now 4-0, took control early and
gave Schembechler his 200th career coaching
victory, a feat the winningest active Division I-A
coach tried to play down.
"ALL IT MEANS is that I've been a head
coach for a long, long time," the Wolverine boss
said after being carried off the field by his team.
"I'm pleased. It's a special thing to win that
many games, but I've always had good players
and great assistant coaches. I've been blessed
"I've also coached at two of the great schools
in the country - Miami and Michigan. You
can't do any better than that. So I've just been
fortunate. It doesn't mean that I'm better than
After his victory ride, the players decided to
give Schembechler the game ball instead of a
shower. He is now 200-55-7 in 23 seasons. He is
160-38-4 at Michigan.
"NO I DIDN'T (think about the 200th),
not at all," Schembechler said. "I was more
concerned about playing here and avoid thinking
ahead to Michigan State. That was the problem
and I think we dealt with it well."
"It hasn't really sunk in yet, but we're playing
for a living legend - Bo Schembechler,"
Harbaugh said. "He never even mentioned (to the
team) that he was going for his 200th win.

Terry Whitman says he is confident
that he will win his civil rights
lawsuit against the City of Ann
Arbor, but a city attorney says
Whitman doesn't have a chance in
Whitman was released from jail
last Monday, temporarily ending
his sentence for contempt of court,
while his Civil Rights lawsuit
against various Ann Arbor citizens
is being tried in court.
"I AM 199 percent positive
that those boys are going to pay,"
said Whitman. "I knew I was
going to be framed. In my
business you can either lay down or
stand up, and I stand up."
On Sept. 25, Whitman began
serving a1982 sentence committing
him to serve 17 days in jail for
violating a court order to close his
"adult" bookstore on Fourth
Avenue. But he was released from
Washtenaw County Jail after three
days so U.S. Federal Court Judge
Stewart Newblatt could determine
whether Whitman's constitutional
rights were violated by the city of
Ann Arbor in 1982.

Retirement bill may
By MARTHA, SEVETSON
A bill that would make
mandatory retirement ages illegal
would have little effect on the
University because most faculty
members want to retire before they
reach 70, according to'a University
Other officials and lobbying
groups, however, say the bill would
hinder younger faculty members
when they try to find jobs.
THE HOUSE o f
Representatives voted Sept. 23 to
bar most employers, including
colleges- and universities, from
setting a mandatory employee
retirement age. The bill would
allow tenured University faculty to
teach past the current retirement age
ct 'U' g
Charles Allmand, assistant to
the provost in charge of personnel
relations, said the average
retirement age of the faculty is 67,
so most faculty members would
retire voluntarily before they reach
the mandatory retirement age.
"They're retiring earlier rather than
later," he said.
Vice President for Government
Relations Richard Kennedy
disagreed. "I think it would create a
problem in the kind of turnover we
need to have positions for young
faculty members," he said.
THE NATIONAL Educatioi
Association, a chief proponent of
the legislation, says the elimination
of retirement age would enhance the
quality of academic institutions.
"The judgment of any faculty
member should be on the basis of
competence, not age," said NEA
Manager of Congressional
Relations Michael Edwards. "I
think (the bill) would allow some
very competent and able faculty
members to remain teaching."
The University now asks retired
professors to return as emeritus
professors on a yearly basis.
The American Council on
Education is supporting a12-year
exemption from the law for tenured
faculty members. They argue that
they must require retirement in
order to make room for young

of the A.C.E. proposal, especially
