In the past, the Michigan-Ohio State games were
wars waged on the ground, featuring the kind of running;
backs that inspired the adage "three yards and a cloud of
Michigan's Tony Boles and Ohio State's Carlos"
Snow are not the kind of backs that phrase was created"
to describe. So maybe its fitting that these speed backs
will probably sit out this weekend's battle for the Big
Ten title. .
"We have decided we will not take a chance in
playing Tony Boles this week," Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler said. "Although we haven't found
anything seriously wrong with the knee, the truth is we"
just feel that we should not take a chance. We'll scope
the knee (today) to be sure we know what we have.
Hopefully, he'll be back for a bowl game. As of right
now, Tony Boles is out of the Ohio State game."
Snow, also suffering from a knee problem, mays
have a better chance than Boles to see action this
"Carlos hasn't been at 100 percent the last four or
five weeks," Ohio State coach John Cooper said.
"Going into the Michigan game, we only have three
healthy backs. Carlos may play in the ball game, but he JOSE JUAREZ/Daly
won't practice at all this week." Michigan wide receiver Greg McMurtry hauls in one of three touchdown passes he caught in the second

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) - Armed
guerillas raided a luxury hotel before dawn yesterday,
trapping dozens of foreigners, including eight U.S.
The Chicago office of the Committee in Solidarity
with the People of El Salvador (CISPES) reported a
military adviser from Guatemala and a military adviser
from Chile were also captured.
Both NBC and CBS television reported last night
that all the Americans, including military personnel,
were freed unharmed. The reports were attributed to the
U.S. Embassy but the reports were refuted late yesterday
by the Red Cross and sources from the scene.
Red Cross spokesperson Marie Aude Lude said 17
people had been evacuated safely in the early evening
but that it appeared no U.S. military personnel or
guerillas were among those evacuated.
Knowledgeable diplomatic sources, who insisted on
anonymity for security reasons, said the American
soldiers barricaded inside the hotel will spend the night
there. They were barricaded behind mattresses and
furniture at one end of the fourth floor hall of the VIP
Tower. The eight are described as heavily armed Green
Berets from Fort Bragg, N.C.
It appeared a standoff was continuing - and would
continue through the night - inside the El Salvador
Sheraton Hotel's VIP Tower more than 17 hours after
guerillas surprised the government with their offensive
in an upper-class neighborhood of this capital.
Earlier yesterday the guerillas said they had captured
four U.S. military advisors. But the AP reached the
occupied sector of the tower and were told the heavily
armed Americans were barricaded in one or two rooms
and controlled the fourth floor hallway, only about 20
yards from where the guerillas were on the third and
One of the barricaded Americans told reporters they
had been talking with the rebels at one point early in
the standoff. The Americans said they had fired no shots
and would not fire unless fired upon.
"We're here because we don't feel we can leave
safely," said one of.the soldiers, who declined to provide

Fisher on his first game as head coach
without any other strings attached. "I'll
still be a little nervous. I'm going to be

Playing a top-ranked team to begin a
season is baptism by immersion. Fisher
is not sure whether he would rather have
a few tune-up games before such a big
game. "If we win, I'll like it," Fisher
reasoned. "If we don't, I'll wish we had a

MSA panel reveals
by Karen Akerlof
Daily Staff Writer
A Michigan Student Assembly investiga-
tive committee presented a report last night
which named former Rep. Michael Peterson as
the subject of a two-month investigation of al-
leged embezzlement of assembly funds.
Law School Rep. Bruce Frank, chair of the
investigating committee, recommended in the
committee's three-page document that embez-
zlement charges not be brought against Peter-
son for his actions as an assembly representa-
tive during the MSA and Palestine Solidarity
Committee-funded trip to Israel last summer.
Peterson could not be reached for comment
The report brought to light concerns that
Peterson had used assembly funds to take a side
trip to London, instead of participating fully in
the Israeli trip which was funded by MSA to
establish connections with Bir Zeit University
and perform a fact-finding mission.
According to the report, Peterson spent less
than one week in Israel, even though MSA had
funded $1,750 for a three-week trip.
Peterson informed the PSC early last sum-
mer that he would be unable to participate in
the trip for the full duration because of other
commitments, Frank said. However, the report
said Peterson never informed the assembly of
The report also said Peterson scheduled his
plane tickets - paid for by MSA - ahead of
time to extend the brief layover period in Lon-
don to an entire day. This did not add to the
cost of the tickets, Frank said.
Because the assembly was not at quorum,
members were not able to vote on accepting
the committee's report, and the issue will be
brought again to the meeting next week.
Some assembly members said while Peter-
son might not be guilty of embezzlement; in-
stead, they said, he might be guilty of breach
In other action, assembly members voted to
recognize Michigamua, a secret, all-male cam-
pus society. The recognition followed a long
series of concerns voiced at earlier assembly
meetings regarding the Michigamua's past use
of Native American traditions in a derogatory
Michigamua President Warren Sharples, a
goalie for the Michigan hockey team, attended
the assembly meeting and said that in the fu-
ture, the group would be using traditions
which were not related to Native Americans.
Instead, he said, they would be firmly based in
the traditions of the University itself.
However, Rackham Rep. Corey Dolgon
said he was concerned that the University's tra-
ditions were not necessarily any better.
