Buckeyes rally to upset Blue,
23-20, on Frantz's field goal

The regular season ended much
the way it began for Michigan as
Wolverine miscues led to a 23-20
loss to Ohio State.
After a game of exciting plays
and great moments, the Buckeyes
carried their embattled head coach off
the field. Ohio State president
Edward Jennings fired Earle Bruce
last Monday. Many will remember
the contest as the one Ohio State
won for Earle.
"There is no sweeter victory in
the world than one over Michigan,"
Bruce waxed poetic. "Down 13-0, to
comeback and win after the week
we've had..." .
contributed heavily to the Buckeyes'
victory at Michigan Stadium before
106,031. Ohio State players wore
"Earle" head bands to show support,
and Bruce wore his Cotton Bowl suit
and fedora for inspiration. But the
Buckeyes' determination was no

different than usual against its arch
"I saw they played hard, but this
was a typical Michigan-Ohio State
game," said Michigan head coach Bo
Schembechler, who now holds a 9-9-
1 record against Ohio State. "I didn't
see anyone loafing. We beat
ourselves, which has been the case
all year long. What can I say?
"Even though we gave the damn
thing away, it was an exciting game.
Sure it was nice for Earle, but that
was not my intent."
TURN OVERS and costly
mistakes again caused Michigan (7-4
overall, 5-3 Big Ten) to lose. The
defeat personified a season of would-
haves, should-haves, and could-
haves. In game 11 on Saturday,
Michigan had 11 major malfunctions
that led to the defeat.

ban nears
SHANNON, Ireland (AP) -
Secretary of State George Schultz
said yesterday the United States and
the Soviet Union had agreed to sta-
tion inspectors at each other's mis-
sile sites for 10 years after banned
weapons are scrapped.
Heading for Geneva to try to wrap
up a missile treaty, Shultz said only
"some operational details" remained
to be worked out.
"The treaty is virtually com-
plete," Shultz said. "All of the main
things have been agreed to."
The treaty to ban U.S. and Soviet
intermediate-range nuclear missiles
is the designated centerpiece for
President Reagan's summit begin-
ning Dec. 7 with General Secretary
Mikhail Gorbachev.
Faced with that deadline, Schultz
scheduled meetings today and
tomorrow with Soviet Foreign
Minister Edward Shevardnadze.
The Soviet diplomat arrived in
Geneva yesterday, saying in a brief
airport statement he was confident
the treaty will be completed "despite
the fact that certain difficult ques-
tions continue to exist."
Shevardnadze said preparations for
the Reagan-Gbrbachev summit also
were in their "most crucial stage."
Victor Karpov, head of the For-
eign Ministry's arms control de-
partment and former chief arms ne-
gotiator in Geneva, was among the

Scharansky rallies for

Soviet dissident Natan Scharansky
called on students last night to
continue the struggle for Soviet
Jewry by participating in a
Washington, D.C. rally. Scharansky
called the rally a " h i s t o r i c
opportunity" to urge the Soviet
Union to free Soviet Jews.
Scharansky, who was imprisoned
in the Soviet Union for nine years on
charges of high treason, spoke at
Rackham Auditorium last night to
about 500 students in a speech
sponsored by the Student Struggle
for Soviet Jewry.
ABOUT 100,000 people are
expected to participate in the Dec. 6
rally, held to pressure the Soviet
Union to allow Soviet Jews to-

of Soviet Jews

emigrate freely. The rally occurs the
day before a U.S.-Soviet summit.
Scharansky said that, after the
release of several well-known
dissidents, the public eased pressure
on the Soviet Union to open its
gates and free Soviet Jews.
"It's a very dangerous situation,"
he said.
SOVIET General Secretary
Mikhail Gorbachev's statements that
Jews are allowed to emigrate freely
are "pure lies," Scharansky said.
Because Gorbachev is concerned
with the Soviet economy and wants
better relations with the West,
Scharansky said, the United States
can pressure the Soviet Union during
the summit into allowing freer

Scharansky said 382,000 Jews in
the Soviet Union have applied for
visas to leave the country. Last year,
1,000 people were granted visas, and
this year another 8,000 are expected
to leave. But Scharansky said in
1979, 51,000 Jews were allowed to
"(Soviet General Secretary Leonid)
Brezhnev never dreamed of getting
the compliments that Gorbachev is
getting now," he said.
UNDER a new policy, he said,
Jews in the Soviet Union must have
an immediate relative outside of the
U.S.S.R. in order to apply to leave
the country. He said this policy
prevents 90 percent of Jews from
even applying for a visa to leave.

Soviet dissident Natan Scharansky urges students to support the release of
Soviet refuseniks-Soviet Jews forbidden by the government to
emigrate-by participating in a Washington D.C. rally on Dec. 6.

Students work to create Korean studies program

Young-hye Kim, an LSA senior, has
revived the push to get the University to
create a program on Korean language, culture,
history, and literature.
Kim said she wants courses in Korean
"because of the way Korea has been rising as a
country" economically and politically in the
past few decades. When a push for a Korean
program came three years ago, she said, most
of the backers were graduate students who
came from Korea to study.
NOW, KIM said, the University has a
Korean-American population interested in
learning about their culture, Kim said. Three-
hundred and forty-eight undergraduate Koreans
enrolled in the 1986-87 year, according to
University Statistical Services.
But the drive to create a Korean studies

Koreans want to study cultural roots

program has been slowed by a myriad of
obstacles. Luis Gomez, chair of the Asian
Languages and Cultures department, said
Korean has never been a regular part of the
curriculum. Different student groups have
brought up the issue in the past, he said, but
Kim hasn't spoken to him yet.
"You can't just create a program out of the
blue," Gomez said, adding that he sympathizes
with students asking for the new curriculum.
COST IS a prohibiting factor. Gomez
said it is expensive to create a new program,
and in a case like this, community support
would be vital in order to show interest in the
proposed curriculum. "I doubt very much the
University would do it on its own without

outside funding," he said.
He said the only sensible solution would
be to create a comprehensive Korean Studies
Program because just adding one or two
classes wouldn't make sense. A program
would include political science classes,
language, anthropological studies, ancient
culture and other courses.
Sang-Yong Nam, a University alumnus
and Ann Arbor resident who has worked with
the Korean students as a community
representative, said University officials told
him that $4-$5 million would be needed to
create a comprehensive program.
TO BEGIN a Korean Studies Program,
language classes would already have to exist.

"If there were no Korean taught, it would be
absolutely worthless to apply" for federal aid,
Michael Cullinane, the program director of the
Center for South and Southeast Asian Studies,
said. "They'd laugh at the application."
Other programs receive funds from the
U.S. Department of Education under Title VI,
which gives money to international education
programs. Federal money pays for fellowships
to support language teaching and operating
Cullinane also said that other departments
would also have to make it a priority to hire
professors who specialize in Korea before a
program could be proposed.
NAM SAID the Korean Society of Ann
Arbor is trying to raise $250,000 to
$500,000, through symposiums, speeches and
