Good Knight, IU0
Blue wins, 79-71

proposes

Michigan might have found the answer to losing big
leads at the end of a game. The solution: A steady
offensive flow and Tony Tolbert.
Michigan never found itself with a 20-point lead as
it had the last time it faced the Bobby Knight's Indiana
Hoosiers. But this time, the Wolverines came away
with a 79-71 win last night at Crisler Arena.
The Wolverines took control midway through the
final period. With 8:41 left in the game, Michigan
started a 12-2 run, which began with eight straight
points. Only 3:11 later, Michigan led 70-59 and never
looked back. The Wolverines used the clock well, did
not force shots, and Tolbert showed why he was a -
Michigan "Mr. Basketball" favorite last season before a
season-ending knee injury.
"We had to play hard for 40 minutes," Michigan-
coach Steve Fisher said. "We talked about how y
somebody had to step forward and give us a lift. (Terry)
Mills did that and Tolbert did that off the bench."
Eric Anderson and Chris Lawson led all scorers with
20 points apiece. Loy Vaught led the Wolverines with :
19 points and 10 rebounds. Rumeal Robinson had 18
points while Mills scored 16 and grabbed nine boards.'
Michigan ran its record to 7-3 in the Big Ten (17-4
overall), good for second place behind Purdue while
Indiana fell to 4-6 in the conference, 14-6 overall. .
Knight summed up his loss by pointing to two ,-..
tough lapses his team slipped into. In the first half the
Wolverines went on a 11-0 run to grab a 28-16 lead, but l
Indiana fought back and took a 33-31 lead into the lock- ;:.
erroom. However, Michigan's outburst in the second f
half proved to be too much for the Hoosiers to
overcome. JOSE JUAREZ/Daily
"Tonight we got into two bad stretches," Knight Michigan forward Loy Vaught, who finished with a team-high 19 points and 10 rebounds, fights

'90

budget

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - More
money for education was good news
to both Republicans and Democrats
who hope to iron out a 1990-91
budget without bloodshed, but bad
news for members of congress who
think school spending is overshad-
owing other important needs.
Perhaps even more controversial
than the spending plan was the pro-
posed 2.5 percent spending cut in
every area except education to avert a
possible deficit.
Governor James Blanchard's pro-
posed budget drew criticism from
lawmakers because it does not allow
department heads' discretion in
choosing where to make cuts. Some
legislators also accused Blanchard of
showing favoritism to education
spending.
"We're going to have a fight in
our caucus on exempting education.
That's a firm position that I have,"
said Republican Joseph Young Sr.,
D-Detroit, who maintains that more
money is needed for mental health
care. "They want to cut every budget
except education. If they exempt
anything, we've got a problem."
Senator Robert Geake, R-
Northville, expressed concern that

the cuts would mean smaller welfare
checks for poor people, but state
Budget Director Shelby Solomon
said that will not necessarily be the
case.
"It looks to me like education is
cannibalizing the rest of the state
budget," Geake said. "I don't see
how we can accept that come Octo-
ber first," the beginning of the fiscal
year.
Senate Majority Leader John En-
gler, R-Mount Pleasant, took partial
credit for the fourteen percent in-
crease Blanchard proposed for public
schools. The two are expected to face
off in the November gubernatorial
campaign.
"Essentially we're in a bidding
war over who can help schools the
most," said Senator Dan DeGrow,
R-Port Huron.
But the expanded education bud-
get did elicit some controversy, be-
cause accompanying the proposal
was a plan to cut back retirement and
Social Security benefits to employ-
ees of wealthy school districts.
The proposed five percent in-
crease in higher education spending
was well received by the college
community.

'Hundreds protest

U.K.

team in South Africa

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(AP) - Police used tear gas and
clubs yesterday to disperse hundreds
of Blacks protesting a tour by an
English cricket team that defied an
anti-apartheid boycott.
A Cabinet minister said continu-
ing unrest is prolanging South
Africa's state of emerg, 'cy and said
threats against Nelson Mandela from
extremists are among the factors de-
laying the ANC leader's release from
prison.

Todd Copeland will be suspended for
this weekend's series with Alaska-
Anchorage, after coach Red Berenson
learned of his involvement early
Thursday morning in an incident re-
sulting in damage to a fraternity
house and a sorority house.
According to an Ann Arbor
police commanding officer Deborah
Ceo, the incident took place between
3:00 and 3:30 a.m Thursday morn-
ing and resulted in broken windows
at both the Kappa Kappa Gamma
sorority house and Sigma Alpha
Epsilon fraternity house.
"There was malicious destruction
of property on the 1400 block of
Washtenaw," Ceo said. "Apparently
it was the same person who had
committed malicious destruction on
the 1200 block of Hill Street."
Ceo said the incident was a
boyfriend-girlfriend dispute. "A
young lady was with another indi-

of that prison a free man and lives
safely in this country as a free citi-
zen," Law and Order Minister Adri-
aan Vlok told a news conference in
Cape Town.
In the township of Alexandra, po-
lice arrested at least six Blacks, say-
ing they had commandeered minibus
taxis to transport protesters to the
nearby cricket grounds despite a
magistrate's ban on demonstrations.
Police stopped all minibus taxis
and most cars leaving the township,
removing any youths they found on

their way to the five-day test match
the English visitors and South
Africa's national team.
A crowd of 2,000 people, mostly
students, then assembled at an inter-
section and were "dispersed peace-
fully" after tear gas was used, police
said. A local anti-apartheid group,
the Alexandra Civic Organization,
claimed some would-be protesters
were beaten and that 30 were injured.
The English team is defying a
ban on sports contacts with South

Africa, designed to protest South
Africa's system of racial segregation.
Police said eight journalists cov-
ering the confrontation were briefly
detained when they refused to obey
an order to leave the area. Police
claimed some journalists provided
transportation to protesters trying to
reach the stadium.
Later, riot police with batons
broke up a second protest by more
than 100 Black youths outside a
downtown office building housing
the British Consulate. The protesters

were chased through the streets even
though a British diplomat urged po-
lice to let them stay.
President F.W. de Clerk an-
nounced Friday the end of restric-
tions on press coverage of unrest and
police action, although film or pho-
tographs cannot be published with-
out permission. However, police say
they are using other sections of
emergency regulations that give
them the power to order anyone to
leave the area.

Gerrit Viljoen, the Cabinet min-
ister in charge of setting up negotia-
tions with Black leaders, said in an
interview with ABC that the emer-
gency will lost only a few more
weeks because the government real-
izes it is inhibiting normalization of
the political process.
Boesak added that Mandela, the
71-year-old ANC leader who has
been imprisoned since 1962, is not
delaying his release, and the question
of when he is freed is entirely up to
the government.

Oil spill threatens beaches
and wetlands in California

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.
(AP) - A drifting oil slick threat-
ened miles of beaches and estuaries
yesterday after a tanker apparently
was punctured by its own anchor and
spilled 295,000 gallons of Alaskan
crude oil.
But favorable offshore wind held
the slick stationary against an on-
shore current about a mile out to sea
from this popular Southern Califor-
nia recreation area. Calm seas eased
the effort to skim the oil from the
surface.
The 811-foot tanker from Ameri-
can trader, which had been fully
loaded with 21 million gallons, lay
off the coast surrounded by a floating
oil containment boom and Coast
Guard vessels.
The purple slick covered an area
measuring 2 1/2 miles by 4 miles,
said Coast Guard Lt. Vincent Cam-
pos. Three skimmer boats were at
work and five more were en route to
the area, off the Orange County
coastline about 35 miles southeast
of Los Angeles.
Along the shore, booms were laid
to protect the environmentally deli-

Six oil-soaked sea birds were
cleaned and cared for by volunteers at
a lifeguard headquarters. Six other
birds were dead.
Curt Taucher, a Fish and Game
spokesperson, said there was some
initial concern about migrating gray
whales but that was not the biggest
worry. "The concern is for the
furbearing animals, harbor seals, and.
animals like that," he said.
The broad, sandy beach at this
city of 180,000 in northern Orange
County, plus Bolsa Chica State
Beach to the northwest and Hunting-

ton State Beach to the south, draw
millions of sunbathers and surfers
during summer.
Routine alcohol and drug tests
were given to the ship's captain,
identified as Robert Laware, and the
first mate, but results were not im-
mediately available.
There were no formal discussions
on use of chemical dispersants, said
Rolf Mall, deputy regional manager
for the state Department of Fish and
Game. Damage from chemicals has
to be weighed against harm from the
oil, he said.
