state supremacy


Rose Bowl in
sight after 10-7
victory over MSU
by Steve Blonder
Daily Football Writer

EAST LANSING - Michigan fans
couldn't get to MSU mascot Sparty, but the
Wolverines were able to get past arch-rival
Michigan State Saturday,10-7.
The fifth-ranked Wolverines were led by
running back Tony Boles, who became the
first Michigan back this season to rush for 100
yards, and a defense which held the Spartans in
crucial situations.
"It was a nice hard-hitting game. There were
a lot of good collisions out there," Michigan
coach Bo Schembechler said afterward. "This
was a big, big win for us."
"The best team won. What more can I say."
The Wolverines may be forced to play Iowa
next week without the services of linebacker
J.J. Grant. The senior co-captain injured his
knee late in the game, and the knee was not
able to support any weight after the game.
Michigan State did manage to find the end
zone once, which marked only the fourth time
they have scored a touchdown against
Michigan in the last seven years.
With the victory, the Spartans took a major
step backward in their quest to spend New
Years Day in Pasadena, while the Wolverines
remain tied for the Big Ten lead with a 2-0
conference record.

16th annual conference

by Vera Songwe
Daily Minority Issues Reporter
Right to Life of Michigan held their 16th
annual conference this weekend in Ann Ar-
"Our basis has always been to try to
reach as many people as possible, so the
conference is mostly educational," said Bar-
bara Listing, president of Michigan Right to
"We feel that abortion is not the 'great al-
ternative' it is made out to be; if wombs had
windows, there would probably be fewer
abortions than there are today," Listing said.

The keynote speaker at the conference
was Bev Daw, president of the Kingston and
District RLA in Canada. She began her
speech by telling the audience she had an
abortion when she was 16.
"At 16 I wanted to get out in the quickest
and simplest way possible," Daw said. "I
didn't tell my parents. I had only one alterna-
tive, and that was abortion."
Daw said the workers at the clinic told
her what she was carrying was not a baby,
but she said, "As a woman we know it is a
human being from the very day we know we
are pregnant. All that happens at birth is that

the baby comes out through a passageway."
"I do not believe the radical feminists
when they say they do not suffer," Daw said.
She admitted that her abortion brought with
it an immediate feeling of freedom, but what
followed was very painful.
"My initial reaction was a sense of re-
lief," she said. "It was only temporarily, and
after that I went into a serious depression. I
became an alcoholic and was even suicidal. I
did not believe I could build a relationship,
and I considered myself a failure."
Daw told the 350-member audience about
a condition known as Post-Abortion Syn-

drome. People do not talk about the syn-
drome, she said, because they refuse to ac-
cept that abortion is not the right way to
deal with an unwanted pregnancy.
If women "had gotten the proper training,
they would not have gotten themselves in
the mess in the first place," Daw said. In-
stead of fighting over abortion, she said the
pro-choice and pro-life advocates should pool
their resources towards educating the public
on how to prevent unwanted pregnancies be-
fore they occur.
"After 11 years, 'murder' may be a strong
word for some people," Daw said, sobbing.

"But I murdered my baby, and now if I pre-
vent one more baby from going to the
slaughter then all my fighting has not been
in vain."
Women, she continued, are also victims
of abortion because clinics and Planned Par-
enthood do not care for them following the
procedure, leaving them to deal with the
problems on their own.
Speaking next was Wanda Franz, a pro-
fessor of child development and family rela-
tions at West Virginia University, who ad-
dressed the issue of teenage abortion and
parental consent. See ABORTION, page 2

.Riots rage on MSU,



Violence, vandalism hit the streets

Associated Press
Police in East Lansing and Kalamazoo
spent yesterday restoring order after a night of
alcohol-fueled violence and vandalism near two
college campuses, resulted in arrests and
The unruly behavior in East Lansing was'
sparked by the 10-7 loss by Michigan State to'
Big Ten rival Michigan on Saturday.
"The U of M and MSU rivalry tends to get
people more excited and there seems to be
more drinking," said Lt. Terry Meyer of the
MSU Department of Public Safety.
During the evening, a crowd of about 3,000
people started at least two bonfires in the
streets, throwing in bikes, trees, and couches
taken from student apartments, said Capt.
Richard Murray of the East Lansing police
department. Ambulances were unable to make
it through the crowd and several injured people
were walked out to the street by plainclothes
officers, said Murray, who estimated there were

"Tear gas would have forced people from
their apartments into the very situation they
were trying to avoid," he said. "This could
have caused more panic and injury."
The problems started earlier Saturday when
82 people were issued citations and kicked out
of the stadium for trying to sneak alcohol into
the game, said Lt. Terry Meyer of the
Michigan State University Department of
Public Safety.
No one was arrested because by the time
officers penetrated the area, around 4:30 a.m.,
most of the hostile crowd was gone, police
In Kalamazoo, where Western Michigan
was celebrating its homecoming against
Central'Michigan, police said about 3,000
revelers were in the street. Dumpsters and cars
were set on fire and officers were pelted with
rocks and bottles, said Lt. Curtis Berglin of the
Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety. Tear
gas was used to disperse the crowd of mostly.
Western Michigan students.

S African
releases eight
SOWETO, South Africa (AP) - Eight leaders of
the anti-apartheid movement became free men yester-
day, seven of them after at least 25 years in jail, and
told rejoicing supporters that equality for blacks in
South Africa is within reach.
Walter Sisulu, 77, a friend and colleague of African
National Congress leader Nelson Mandela, proudly
presided over the first news conference held by the
organization in South Africa since it was banned in
"Our determination has never been weakened by our
long years of imprisonment," Sisulu told scores of
reporters and hundreds of ANC followers who packed a
church hall. "We have been strengthened by the devel-
opments in our country and our own clear vision of
the future."
Some in the crowd wept as the freed prisoners,
raising clenched fists, led their supporters in singing
"God Bless Africa," the anthem of the anti-apartheid
Sisulu and six other ANC members were freed early
Sunday. Also freed was Jafta Masemola, 58, of the
Pan Africanist Congress, a smaller guerilla movement.
