was characterized by big plays,
controversial calls, lengthy delays
due to injuries, and Michigan's
version of the four-corner offense,
which halted the game for almost 20
minutes (on two occasions) during
the fourth quarter.
THE GAME also featured a
gutty Michigan team that battled
back from an abominable first half
and a Gopher team that was unable
to shut the door in the Wolverines
face. The Little Brown Jug, which

Shabazz leads salute to Black women
By FAITH PENNICK
Attallah Shabazz, the eldest daughter of the late
Black empowerment activist Malcolm X, recounted her
father's life and the contributions of Black women to
the struggle for racial equality.
The program entitled, "A Salute to Black Women,"
was presented by the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. The
fraternity paid tribute to the struggle and achievements
of Black women, individually and as a whole, through
poetry and biographies.
Shabazz, who spoke impromptu to the Rackham
Amphitheater audience, said the fraternity's presenta-
tion "touched" her. "It wiped out anything I would have
planned to say."
She elaborated on how Malcolm X's wife and
mother were the primary force in forming his spiritual
strengths and guidance. "I know who spoon-fed that,"
She also spoke about her father as a family man.
"He was easy. Real smooth," said Shabazz. "He would
talk to you." Shabazz also stated that the biggest mis-
conception about him was his image as being violent.
"If my father was such a hater," she said, "I would have
grown up with it."
She feels no hate towards racists, saying "that's a
weakness in them." She told the audience not to "allow
one's ill insecurities get you down."
Shabazz also elaborated on her father's assassina-
tion in 1965, addressing a question from the audience
concerning "speculation" on who was behind his death.
"You can speculate and avoid liability if you want to,"
she said frankly.
She added that the five gunmen who killed Malcolm
X "didn't do it by themselves." Shabazz, who wit-
nessed her father's murder, said that the pain and anger
still lingers. "Sometimes I'm pissed off that he's not
here," Shabazz said, but hopes that her lecturing will
continue to make people aware of the struggle for civil
freedom which cost him his life. "My speaking gives
Malcolm some kind of life," she said.
Shabazz is a writer, film producer, and the co-
founder of Nucleus, Inc., a national touring company
of educational theater. She established the theater com-
pany with Yolanda King, one of the daughters of Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
In speaking on meeting Yolanda King for the first
time in 1979, Shabazz said she thought they would
dislike each other because of their fathers' differing po-
litical positions. The opposite happened; they found
many things in common with each other and between
their fathers. "They (Malcolm X and King) had so
much in common than the press and we (the audience)
allowed them to live," she said.
After Shabazz's address, awards citing local
achievement were presented to Barbara Ransby, foundet
of the Free South Africa Coordinating Committee and
co-founder of the United Coalition Against Racism,'
and Judy Sturgis-Hill, director of Housing Special

ENNISKILLEN, Northern Ireland
(AP) - A bomb killed 11 people
and injured 61 yesterday at a Re-
membrance Day ceremony for Bri-
tain's war dead in the worst Irish ter-
rorist attack in five years.
The huge explosion transformed
the solemn pageant, which recalled
the thousands of Ulsterites who gave
their lives for their country in two
world wars, into a horror scene of
bloodshed and destruction.
Friends, relatives, soldiers, and
members of the band dug with their
bare haads through the rubble of a
community center where the bomb
was planted in this County Fer-
mangh town near the Irish border.
The blast blew out one end of the
building and the structure collapsed,
trapping men, women, and children
against sidewalk railings.
Police said three married couples
were among the six women and five
men killed, and that many of the
wounded were badly hurt in the 10:45

"People started to scream and people
started to run away - those who
could- but it was obvious that many
would have been killed instantly."
No group claimed responsibility
for the bombing but the providence's
top police official said he had no
doubts the Irish Republican Army
had planted the bomb and that it was
specifically aimed at civilians.

guide both to assembly members

'U' battles for blood against OSU
By SHEALA DURANT
The Michigan-Ohio State rivalry is more than
just a football' game. It's a blood battle.
The University will try to wrest the blood
championship away from Ohio State in the sixth
units of blood to win the trophy this year. Fry
thinks that the University should have no trouble
winning this year because, "The Buckeyes aren't
too bright," adding the Webster's Collegiate
Dictionary defining a Buckeye as a seed or nut
proves that they don't bleed.
LSA senior John Lin, a Blood Drive
Coordinator said, "We are a National Co-Ed
Service Fraternity, and -the blood drive is
definitely one of our main priorities every year."
The blood donation tallies will be posted or
