U.S. coast still
.struggling with
Hugo's wrath

Churches appealed for emergency
donations of food, clothing and
money yesterday for victims of
Hurricane Hugo. Lines for hot meals
were blocks long and people waited
up to four hours to buy gas and
other supplies.
National Guards with M-16 rifles
patrolled the streets of the battered
city of 65,000 people, guarding
against looters and keeping order at
locations where residents lugged
coolers and plastic jugs to get fresh
S water.
An emergency law enacted
Saturday night sought to keep profi-

teers from charging $10 for a bag of
ice and $6000 for a chain saw.
Without electricity for a third
day, residents were unable to cook,
boil water for drinking or get cash
from bank machines. At stores that
managed to reopen, people waited in
lines for up to four hours.
The Red Cross dished out hot
meals from lunch wagons. At the
Citadel Square Baptist Church, the
line stretched for three blocks,
spokesperson Brian Ruberry said.
As a cold rain fell yesterday
morning, church bells pealed above
the hum of generators and the buzz

Soviets compromise
at arms summit

The headlines were of summits
and arms control, but it is a desper-
ate Soviet economy that is melting a
range of bitter edges from the Cold
War and driving a reduction in su-
perpower nuclear arsenals.
The Soviets came to this Rocky
Mountain setting in a compromising
mood and the United States, mindful
of Soviet President Mikhail
Gorbachev's plight, was there to
pocket the concessions.
One by one, Soviet Foreign
Minister Eduard Shevardnadze trotted
out the concessions - yielding on
Star Wars, a dubious Siberian radar
facility and on sea-launched cruise
Secretary of State James Baker
was compelled to give nearly noth-
ing in return. Yes, he would consider
" Soviet proposal for inspection of
U.S. radar facilities in Greenland and
Britain. And he would consider draw-

ing up lists of acceptable Star Wars
space tests.
But Baker, said that really noth-
ing could be done about the radar
without the consent of the host
countries, Denmark and Britain.
And, he said, nothing really had
changed since 1987 when the
Soviets first suggested identifying
which tests were permissible under
the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile
The Soviets, on the other hand,
gave and gave again.
They will let negotiators in
Geneva try to complete a treaty to
slash the number of long-range nu-
clear weapons-perhaps by half even
without a parallel agreement on
space-based defenses.
That means the Soviets are sur-
rendering to the U.S. Strategic
Defense initiative. Their best hope
for trimming the program rests with

'M' wins 24-23 inmda iih

By Richard Eisen
Daily Football Writer

LO ANGELES - It looked like d6ja vu all
over again.
For the second straight Saturday, Michigan
placekicker J.D. Carlson teed up the football in a
last ditch onside kick attempt to hopefully bring
the Wolverines to a comeback victory.
Against Notre Dame, the ball died not more
than three yards from the tee. On Saturday,
however, Carson's kick was dead solid perfect as
the ball popped into safety Vada Murray's hands
15 yards downfield.
The successful onside kick set up a Carlson
24-yard field goal, his fourth of the day, with :04
left to push the Wolverines past the UCLA
Bruins, 24-23 in a stunning comeback win.

Carlson, who shoved an extra point wide left
against the Irish, atoned for his sins and was
right on target against the Bruins.
"It felt great. I was glad I had the opportunity
to do it," said Carlson, who sounded like he'd
been in someone's doghouse all week. "To have
the opportunity is great, but to make it feels
The onside kick opportunity wouldn't have
meant much if it had not been for Michigan
redshirt frosh quarterback Elvis Grbac, who
recovered from early-game jitters to calmy lead
the Wolverines down the field with time running
"I thought Elvis played very well at the end
of the ballgame," Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler said. "He was aiming the ball

most of the game and he certainly wasn't the
quarterback we practiced with all week.
UCLA seemed to have the game sewn up as
it had possession of the ball with 4:30 left. But
at 3:41 in the fourth quarter, running back
Shawn Wills fumbled the ball when Michigan
cornerback David Key smacked him.
Captain J.J. Grant recovered the ball and
Grbac brought the team into the end zone with
just 2:06 remaining.
After a missed 2-point conversion, Carlson
teed up the ball for the onside kick and the rest is
now history.
"With a victory like that," Grbac said, "it
kind of sets the whole season in perspective. We
have to work off this (win)."

Thousands attend pro-choice

by Laura Counts
Daily Women's Issues Reporter
LANSING - About 5,000 pro-choice demonstrators
aimed their message at the Michigan State Legislature
as they converged on the steps of the Capitol Building
in a rally for reproductive rights yesterday.
Fearing the legislature will pass several pending
bills that may restrict abortion in Michigan, pro-choice
activists planned the rally to show their conviction
that government has no place in deciding a woman's
right to an abortion.
The legislature, which reconvenes today, will begin
hearings on the bills during this fall's term.
"I believe this event will serve as a rallying point for
thousands of citizens in Michigan whose voices are yet

in Lansing
to be heard," Gov. James Blanchard told the crowd yes-
terday. Blanchard criticized the use of anti-abortion opin-
ions as a litmus test for candidates for Supreme Court
Justices and powerful state offices.
The mood was festive yesterday as a band played,
people picnicked in the sun, and children held brightly
colored balloons. The crowd, composed of people of all
ages and both genders, applauded enthusiastically at ev-
ery cue. A giant American flag hung as a backdrop for
the speakers, and the rally opened with the national an-
Several of the rally's speakers emphasized that most
Americans, including Michigan residents, are pro-choice
and have become more vocal since the Supreme Court's
Webster v. Reproductive Health Services ruling in July.

They speak in terms of
"concentration", "perfect game",
"master," and "challenge." The game
they play is a modern mind game, a
mental medxval joust.
"There are no dummies in chess,"
said John Smalec, an Ann Arbor
chess player of 17 years and director
of a statewide chess tournament
hosted at the Michigan League yes-
Fifty-six people came from all
over the state to play in the
Michigan Chess Team's action tour-
"Action" chess, where players are
only allowed 30 minutes each to
make all their moves, is relatively
new, recognized by the United States
Chess Federation only in the last
two years.
The players were of all ages and
levels of ability, from fourth grade
novices to state champions. In in-
