mere 22 yards in the second half. That,
combined with stingy coverage in the
secondary, prevented the Spartans from
closing the gap.
The Wolverines sacked Burke six
times, easily the highest output this sea-
son for the defense.
As they have in every previous
game, the Michigan offense continued
to have significant success. The
Wolverines compiled 206 rushing
yards - 69 of them came on an
Anthony Thomas touchdown on his
first carry of the game. The play, late in
the first quarter, was Michigan's first
score of the game.
"I was thinking about the coaches,
who always say 'they better not catch
you from behind,"' Thomas said.
The Spartans could catch neither
Thomas nor fellow tailback Clarence
Williams throughout the contest.
Thomas amassed 106 yards on the
ground while Williams picked up 88.
The other Michigan rushing touch-
down of the game came on a one-yard
quarterback sneak touchdown by
The remainder of Michigan's scoring
came from three field goals by Feely,
one of which tied his career longest
kick - a 51-yarder in the first quarter.
Although the Wolverines did pull out
a victory, they fumbled the ball four
times and lost it twice. Both turnovers
came on special teams plays - a fum-
bled punt by James Whitley and a fun-
ble on a pooch kickoff by Grady Brooks.
"We're not a great football team, by
any stretch of the imagination," Carr
said. "But we played hard today and
think that enabled us to overcome the
mistakes we made."

House passes $80B tax-cut measures
WASHINGTON - An $80 billion Republican tax cut calculated to appeal
millions of middle-class Americans has passed in the House.
President Clinton renewed his threat to veto the election-year bill because
would spend part of the $1.6 trillion budget surplus forecast over the next decad
instead of holding all of it until Social Security is safeguarded.
The House passed the measure 229-195 on Saturday, sending it to the Senate,
its future is less certain. The 16-member Michigan delegation followed a mostlyparty
line vote with all six Republicans and Democrst Jim Barcia (D-Bay City) voting ft
the measure. The delegation's other nine Democrats voted against it.
On Friday, the House voted for 90 percent of any federal surplus to be held
reserve until a Social Security rescue plan is in place.
Republicans pushed through the Social Security bill on a 240-188 vote to blur
Democratic criticism - certain to echo across congressional political campaign
- that the GOP tax cut would amountto a raid on the popular retirement progran
The Michigan delegation split along party lines, with all 10 Democrats votin
against it and the six Republicans for it.
Most Democrats do not support the use of a surplus that may not materialize t
