Christmas is more than a month
away, but the Michigan Wolverines
did some early gift giving. Three
Michigan turnovers led to 17
Minnesota points as the Golden
Gophers shocked the second-ranked
Wolverines Saturday, 20-17, at
Michigan Stadium.
Chip Lohmiller's 30-yard field
goal as time expired gave
Minnesota (5-2 in the Big Ten, 6-4
overall) the win.
"We haven't been a turnover
team; we haven't made these
mistakes in the past," said Mich-
igan head coach Bo Schembechler,
who saw that charity does indeed
begin at home. "Today we just
made one mistake after another. I
can't believe they would play like
that, but they did."
FEW OF the 104,864 fans
who saw the game could believe it,
either, as Michigan's hope of a
national title dissipated as Loh-
miller's kick sailed through the
goalposts. "This was the biggest
kick I've made in my career,"
Lohmiller said. "I was a little
nervous but I had to try block out

back Jim Harbaugh was apparently

fumble. The third-quarter inter-
ception, as Gopher cornerback Matt
Martinez stepped in front of
Thomas Wilcher at the Michigan
36, was especially costly. It re-
sulted in a Rickey Foggie five-yard
touchdown run four plays later.

turnovers and I made two of them,"
Harbaugh said after Michigan
suffered its first loss in ten games
this year. "You can't play when

didn't bother Minnesota's John
Gutekunst. The first-year head
coach led Minnesota to its first win
over Michigan since 1977, and in
doing so, put itself in contention
for a bowl bid.
"We got our points on their
mistakes, we got the turnovers and
field position," he said. "Our
kicking game put them in bad field
position." -

were 23-point favorites. But Mich-
igan was largely uneffective mov-

opportunistic offense, led by junior
quarterback Foggie, outgained
Michigan rushing 227 to 134, and
controlled the ball 31:04 to
Michigan's 28:56. Foggie led
Minnesota in rushing with 78 yards

"I don't know how there was

we stayed back a little bit too
much, I don't know. I don't know
how he got out like that."

Republican councilmember
seeks nomination for mayor

From staff and wire reports
SEOUL, South Korea - The
Defense Ministry, in a broadcast
today on state-run radio, said North
Korean loudspeakers along the
demilitarized zone were saying
North Korean President Kim II
Sung had been killed in a shooting.
The same broadcast said there
was no confirmation of the report
from North Korean radio broadcasts
or sources here in the capital of
South Korea.
PPOLITICAL Science Prof.'
Kenneth Lieberthal said that
hostilities could develop between
North and South Korea if the South
Koreans were responsible for the
reported killing.
"On the negative side, we don't


know who is responsible. The
South Korean government is not a
stable government, as it is in the
midst of an ongoing succession
crisis. There is certainly, now,
instability in the North, and
potential instability in the South,"
Lieberthal said.
He added,"War on the Korean
Peninsula would be a nightmare
that no one wants to see realized.
This could be one of the most
.dangerous international events in a
number of years."

Republican city councilmember Gerald Jernigan
announced his candidacy for mayor of Ann Arbor on
Friday. Local Democrats predicted his victory would be
a longshot.
Jernigan (R-Fourth Ward) would oppose Democratic
incumbent Mayor Ed Pierce in a Republican effort to
regain both a council majority and the mayorial seat
lost in the 1985 elections.
Councilmembers say Jernigan, who describes
himself as "moderately conservative," will probably
receive the Republican nomination. Jernigan, a
University investment analyst, said he decided to run

for mayor because of the lack of unity under the

Jernigan said. "We don't have any solid policies. There

Reagan referendum
'defeated at Brown
Students at Brown University last week barely voted down a
referendum which proposed to impeach President Reagan.
The proposal was defeated 477-458. About 20 percent of students at
Brown voted in the election.
Brown student John Bonifaz, founder of the group that sponsored the
referendum, Students for Ethical Government, remains pleased with the
outcome. "In only nine working days we convinced 49 percent of the
voters. That is an enormous percentage," he said.
Students for Ethical Government gives several reasons why Reagan
should be impeached. First, the group says Reagan disobeyed
Congressional orders in an attempt to overthrow the Nicaraguan
government. Second, the group believes the Reagan Administration's
disinformation campaign to mislead-the American media on United
States relations with Libya is unconstitutional.
FINALLY, the group claims the Reagan administration is hiding
critical information about the 1983 Korean Airlines disaster,'and that
the plane, which was shot down by the Soviet Union, may have been a
spy mission.
Bonifaz said he and others in the organization will gather their
