Michigan basketball players, like
the rest of the students at this
university, are in the process of un-
dergoing final examinations. Last
night, they managed to take some
time off from learning their ABCs
to play some D in their 88-67 win
over Austin Peay.
Despite being destitute of sleep,
Michigan shut down the Governors'
top scorer and big man, Barry
Sumpter, and applied extreme
pressure to the opposing guards,
causing sloppy play.
"We're in some tough times
here," head coach Bill Frieder said.
"These guys are just busting their
butts in the classroom. And it's
He added, "But our defense is
much better than it was the first
couple of weeks of practice and it's
much better than it was up in
Alaska. Tonight, holding Sumpter
down was the key. He was our
number one concern."
Gary Grant received the highest
grade. He scored 28 points, shooting
nine-of-11 from the field and
connected on all 10 of his free
throws. For extra credit, he added
five steals and constantly hounded
Austin Peay's guards, holding their
second leading scorer, guard Vincent
Brooks, to zero points.
"The prediction that he's the best
guard in the country should not be
too far off," Austin Peay head coach
Lake Kelly said. "What else could he
do that he doesn't do, I don't know?

WASHINGTON (AP) - Pres-
ident Reagan and Soviet leader Mik-
hail Gorbachev concluded three days
of summit talks yesterday reporting
"some progress" but no agreement to
curb long-range strategic weapons
and an impasse on the withdrawal of
Soviet troops from Afghanistan.
But in an apparent concession,
Gorbachev dropped his insistence for
restrictions on Star Wars testing as a
condition for cuts in strategic ar-
senals, a senior U.S. official said.
The United States also preserved
the right for broad testing of the Star

though Congress has imposed some

Ballistic Missile Treaty for a period

The leaders agreed to hold another
summit, their fourth, in Moscow in
1988 in the first half of the year,
White House spokesperson Marlin
Fitzwater said. An administration
official said "it might be possible
with hard work" to have a strategic
arms pact ready for signing in Mos-
cow, but said a summit meeting
would be held nonetheless.
At a news conference before leav-
ing Washington, Gorbachev said the
superpowers are emerging from "the
long drawn-out confrontation" of the
past four decades.
The Soviet leader said, "Diff-
erences still exist and on some points
those differences are very serious
indeed." He added, "We do not regard
them as insurmountable."
Reagan addressed the nation from
the Oval Office last evening, saying
they had made "dramatic movement"
on arms control and vowing to press
ahead with his Star Wars program.
Reagan said the summit produced
"some very limited movement" on
human rights and said he "spoke very
candidly" to Gorbachev in urging a
Soviet pullout from Afghanistan.
"The summit has been a clear
success," said Reagan.
The final day of talks was
curtailed by behind-the-scenes dis-
cussions over reductions in long-
range ballistic missiles.
Both sides had hdped to make pro-
gress on a formula for cutting stra-
tegic nuclear weapons by about 50

ament accord signed at the summit
would be ratified by the U.S. Senate.

Eight years ago, an "enthusiastic
young economics professor" named
Harold Shapiro took over as presi-
dent of the University. He wasn't
just any economics professor, hav-

chair and the vice president for aca-
But young he was. Shapiro rose
to the University's helm at 44, less
than 20 years after he received his
doctorate from Princeton.
"He's a superb choice," said then-
MSA President Jim Alland.
"Harold Shapiro deserves a lot of
credit for his past service in the
University," said The Daily. "His
experience can only be a huge plus
factor in his efforts to lead the
school through the next decade."
Now, two years early, the decade
is over and Shapiro's agenda is filled
with "last speeches," "last lun-
cheons," and his "last meeting" with
the University's Board of Regents.
