Caspar Weinberger, United States
Secretary of Defense, is reportedly
eady to resign his position.r T e
announcement came as a surprise in
Washington, but not in Ann Arbor,
where Griddes followers have been
tracking the Friendly Ghost's demise.
Weinberger, it seems, was strug-
gling to defeat to Secretary of State
George (Don't Call Me Charlie
Brown) Shultz in the White House
Secretaries' Griddes pool each week.
When former basement secretary
Fawn Hall beat Weinberger last
week, Caspar decided to hang it up.
In a related story, Deng Xiaoping
stepped down amid rumors of Griddes
reform in China.
To be eligible to beat the world
leaders for a Domino's pizza coupon,
drop off your Griddes at the Daily on
or before Friday.

Despite the fact that Brost didn't

well. "It may have been a slow start

score, York gave rave reviews. "I

stood out on (the Michigan) team."

Special to the Daily
Before a loud crowd at Tartan Turf
last Friday night, the Michigan
lacrosse team defeated Albion, 13-4,
in its annual fall "classic."
The young team was led by a
barrage of good performances at every
position. Holding the opposition
down was the play of veteran goalie
Rob DiGiovanni and his defense
including, Mike Blocker, Bill
Baldwin, Alex Gordon, and Tony
Nam.
At halftime of the game Michigan
led by a narrow 6-3 margin. During
the third quarter, the Wolverines
broke the game open.
Leading the offensive charge were
midfielders Chris DiGiovanni,
Morgan Bazillian and John Paul,
who all had an assist. Glen Kutler,
Rick Engle, and Mark Silbergeld
each added two goals and Tim Reilly
had two goals and an assist. The big

gun was Mike Carr with four goals.
The team begins its regular season
in March.
