The I's - Iowa, Indiana, and Illinois - have it,
unless Michigan has anything to say about it.
Michigan travels to Iowa City on Saturday for its
first of two consecutive conference games that will
play a big part in deciding the Big Ten championship.
The Wolverines (2-0-0 in the conference, 3-2-0
overall) play the Hawkeyes (1-0-1, 3-2-1) at 3:30, in
a game televised by ABC.
Michigan follows the Iowa game with its
homecoming game against Indiana next Saturday. The
Hoosiers play at home against Minnesota this week,
and should they win, will come into Ann Arbor
undefeated in the conference.
Illinois, the only other team without a loss in the
conference, plays at Wisconsin.
"I think by the time the next two weeks are over,
we can pretty much chart our course, don't you?"
asked Michigan coach Bo Schembechler.
"This is a big game because both (Michigan and
Iowa) have ambitions to win the championship,"
Schembechler said. "It would be a devastating blow to
either team to lose."
And recent history isn't on the Wolverines' side:
Michigan last won a game at Iowa City in 1982. In
Michigan's 6-6 season of 1984, the Hawkeyes won,
26-0. In 1985, Iowa's Rob Houghtlin kicked a field
goal as time ran out, giving the Hawkeyes a 12-10
And though Michigan blew Iowa out in Ann
Arbor last year, 37-10, Hawkeyes' quarterback Chuck
Hartlieb put on a passing display against the
Wolverines that hasn't since been matched. He
connected on 27 out of 43 attempts for 362 yards
One of Hartliebs favOrite targets, tight end Marv
Cook, also had a big day last year against Michigan,
catching three passes for 105 yards.

The University's Board of
Regents is preparing to rewrite its
by-laws so meetings of the board
which governs Michigan athletics
can be closed to the public.
"A change in the by-laws will
most likely be recommended to the
regents in November, and could
possibly be enacted by December,"
regents' secretary and University
Vice-President for Government Re-
lations Richard Kennedy said last
Making this change would allow
the athletic department to close
meetings of the Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics whenever
they see fit, although Michigan
Athletic Director Bo Schembechler
said the change would not lead to
all meetings being closed.
"WE JUST want to be able to
have a closed meeting once in a
while," said Schembechler. "We're
not trying to totally shut you guys
Kennedy added the change is not
an attempt to skirt the Open
Meetings Act. The act requires that
public bodies hold open meetings
unless they are discussing personnel
decisions, the purchase of real estate
property, or strategy involving
"We are more interested in
making sure everyone understands
this board is like any other Uni-
versity committee," Kennedy said.
Regents, however, are unaware,
that any change is being planned.,
"There may be a movement to
change the by-Taws, but I don't
know anything about it. The
regents are always the last to
know," Regent Deane Baker (R-
Ann Arbor) said.
THE BOARD in Control of.
Intercollegiate Athletics is com-
prised of students, faculty members,
and alumni, and has the authority to
make decisions regarding athletic
department policies. Any decision
made by the board is subject to
review by the regents, since the
board is officially the regents'
advisory committee for athletics.
The board makes decisions in-
volving areas such as ticket prices,
fund raising, schedules, and the ad-
dition or removal of varsity sports.
Last night at its monthly
meeting, the board voted to
continue studying a petition to
create two new varsity sports -
women's and men's soccer. Both
sports are currently club sports, and
some question exists whether the
athletic department can currently
afford to add these new sports.
"There is no way we can support
21 sports without getting additional
revenue. The only additional
revenue is in the general funds and
that doesn't seem to be available,"
said Senior Associate Athletic
Director Jack Weidenbach.

WITH WIRE REPORTS
Michael Dukakis, an underdog seeking
a debate-night breakthrough, said last
night that Republican George Bush stands
as an "apostic of the status quo." Bush de-
scribed his rival repeatedly as a liberal and
cited their differences on arms control, the
death penalty, and the Supreme Court.
And, as usual, fans of both camps
claimed their candidates were victorious.
"(Bush) was fantastic, a clear knock-
out," said LSA junior Navid Mah-
moodzadegan, the president of Students for
Bush-Quayle. "He was strong on defense,
foreign policy, and social security."

Gloria Steinem, feminist leader
and co-founder of Ms. magazine,
urged a receptive crowd of Ann Ar-
bor voters yesterday to continue their
fight against ballot Proposal A -
which would discontinue Medicaid
payments for abortion in Michigan
- and stressed the national
repercussions of the proposal should
The People's Campaign for
Choice sponsored Steinem's short
speech at an informal reception at
the Michigan Theater. The fund-
raiser, which attracted more than 250
people, will pay for advertising to
respond to anti-abortionists' rigorous
media program, said Margy Long, a
People's Campaign representative.
Steinem, who lived in Michigan
as a child, spoke this week in Lans-
ing and Kalamazoo and will stop
next in Detroit.
Although Colorado and Arkansas
have similar proposals on their
November ballots, Steinem said she
"thought (she) had to come here."
Having lived as a child in Clark
Lake; a small town 12 miles south
of Jackson, she has a personal inter-
est in Michigan, she said.
Michigan's unique position as the
only large, industrial state with such
a proposal on its ballot also attracted
Steinem here. If the proposal passes,
Michigan "would set the tactic for
the anti-abortion people for the rest
of the country," Steinem said. The
proposal is the first step toward a
constitutional amendment prohibit-
ing abortion, anti-abortionists say.
Steinem told the audience about a
teenager who babysat her when she
was a child in Michigan, who died as
a result of an improperly performed
illegal abortion. The teenager's
pregnancy was a product of parental
abuse, she said.
Since Proposal A provides no
provision for rape or incest, "this
kind of woman would be abandoned"
if the proposal passes, Steinem said.
Steinem refuted the notion that
Proposal A will save tax dollars. An
abortion costs about $300, she said.
The estimated cost of a pregnancy
and government support for a young
mother is $3,000, she said.
"The proposal is wrong at every
level," she said. "This is one of few
cases where freedom and frugality go
hand in hand."
500 protest rape
at U. of Illinois
Feminist leader Gloria Steinem encourages Ann Arbor
voters to fight Proposal A, which would discontinue
Medicaid payments for abortion. Steinem spoke yesterday

URBANA, Ill. (AP) - Univer-
sity of Illinois students, shaken by a
series of rapes, are taking steps to
protect themselves and to fight the
sexism many blame for the attacks,
student leaders and school officials
The attacks around the campus
stopped when police identified a
suspect, but students are labeling
sexism a factor - a message under-
scored with a candlelight march and
rally Wednesday night.
"The message at the rally was
that sexism is in our society and it
is the cause of a lot of things that go
wrong - rape, discrimination, and
women feeling low self-esteem,"
Jane Brouwer, president of the Pan-
hellenic Council, said Thursday. "A
lot of people just don't think about

sexism," Brouwer said.
ABOUT 500 students demon-
strated Wednesday, carrying candles
to draw attention to the role of sex-
ism in the series of assaults that po-
lice attribute to a serial rapist.
"We-have a suspect," Champaign
Detective Gerald Schweighart said
Thursday. "He was identified just
before the series of rapes stopped -
around Sept. 10."
Police are awaiting results of
tests on the suspect's blood and have
made no arrest, Schweighart said.
Investigators believe about nine
rapes have been committed by the
same man since spring, said

united groups as diverse as the Pan-
hellenic Council, the campus chapter
of the NAACP, and a political
coalition, United Progressives.
The aim was to stress the role of
sexism in society, from pin-up cal-
endars and pornography to references
to women in casual conversation,
"We need a general respect of men
and women for each other," Brouwer
said. "If we are serious, we can make
