The m ad dog fan says: k
tell it lIke at is
In case nobody has noticed it, football season starts Saturday.
From now on there'll be no more of this pre-season nonsense, no
more feeling around to make sure there really is a team out there for
us, no more building up momentum against the losers of the world.
Yessirree, the regular, Major League, no-nonsense, up-tight mean-
ingful season is ready to start,
And isn't it time we recognized Michigan State University for
what it is?
Call 'em farmers, call 'em hayseeds, call 'em cows, they've been
beating us almost every year since most of us can remember.
When that school was a bunch of farmers years ago the Wolver-
ines slaughtered the disorganized hicks annually.
Now the whole atmosphere has changed. The place is a whirring,
meshing, squeeking, inevitable machine. And so is the team.
It is not human. And that's why all the old methods haven't been
working against it. You can't call them "Green Giants" or the school j
"MOO-U" and expect them to feel inferior.
0 How can they feel inferior when they don't even bother to think?
You can't paint the campus blue or steal the mascot. A machine
can't see, either.
Nope, the only way to beat the Frankenstein monster is to foul
up the mechanism. You have to short-circuit the process; fold an
IBM card.
Use a little imagination which the computer hasn't been program-
med to anticipate.
Make all their scouting reports completely irrelevent.
And then kill it, stomp it, crunch it, mash it, burn the wreakage,
and throw the rest of the mess away.
But most of all, get MAD.
The Michigan Wolverines have got to stop playing football like
Floyd Patterson boxes. Here is an intelligent, sensitive bunch of young
men who view football merely as a healthy contest that has a place
along with academic pursuits.
It's sort of halfway between de-emphasizing the sport altogether
and being professional like the Packers or the Spartans. Play football
yes, but don't flunk out doing it.
The trouble is, this only works against teams with the same atti- I
tude towards the "game."
Michigan does not have the killer instinct. If the Wolverines did,
they would have beaten Navy 56-3. They would have rolled it up like
Notre Dame or Purdue,
But Michigan believes this is wrong. It might even be immoral to
be that mean. (Just ask Patterson.)
Wait a minute. This is not to say that this school should em-
phasize football like the Boilermakers do. That is a question for oth-
ers to answer who are not connected with the current football pro-
.q gram. The point is, Michigan is ,now in the Big Ten. And that is the
brand of football to be playing.
There is one other point about Patterson. He has' a glass Jaw. One
punch in the right place and he's down. And out.
Does Michigan have a glass jaw? It used to be that the Wolver-
ines had a frustrating propensity to make a big mistake in the wrong
situation. Fumbles, penalties, interceptions (what coaches call "the
breaks") all contributed to an astounding number of fourth quarter
Now Michigan has largely cut this out. But the team has a much
more disturbing problem. The strength of both the offensive and
defensive lines is still questionable after the third game of the sea-
son. If both lines are constantly being pushed backwards, as in the
first game of the year, the team will almost inevitably lose.
However, if the lines are at least holding their own, everything
r will work out all right. The team will move the ball, the defense will
stop 'em, and the stadium will be filled, ending the athletic depart-
ment's financial problems, the alumni complaints, and the students'
apathy. .
All right. Up to now there have been some thinly veiled threats,
some nonsense about "he better lock his door at night" and so forth,
especially after a previous, rather cynical column.
Well, go ahead and do what you want to if that will make Michi-
gan a better football team.
Personally, I don't care if Michigan burns the whole world down
as long as they beat Michigan State on Saturday.
Does the team care that much?
* * * .
This has nothing to do with football, but it's interesting to take
note of the storm that Jose Feliciano caused when he rocked Tiger
Stadium before yesterday's World Series game with his own rendition
of the National Anthem.
The blind soul singer poured forth with an original arrangement
that our expert, Little Sherri Funn really got into.
The problem is that many people criticized Feliciano, not because
they didn't like the music, but because the arrangement offended
their sense, of mother, God, country and patriotism. These people
thought it was practically sacrilegeous.
Who are these stuffed shirts, anyway? Feliciano's version may
have been better than the original. He had ar idea, and he may have
improved matters.
Some people better stop confusing an old tradition with religion.:

shutting out St. Louis for the rest
of the game. It was not all smooth
sailing, however, as the Cardinals
threatened two more times.
With one out in the top of
the fifth, Brock doubled again -
raising his Series batting average
to .578 (11 hits in 19 trips).
This time Javier followed with
a single toward Horton in left,

guing that Brock's foot did not
touch the plate.
With that crisis made history,
Lolich got Flood on a fly ball to
end the threat.

IBM invites you to join an infant industry.

Big as it is, the information processing
industry is just beginning to grow.
Recently, Fortune estimated that the value
of general purpose computers installed in
this country will more than double by 1972.
Other publications have other predictions,
and probably no source is totally precise. But
most agree that information processing is
one of America's fastest growing major
Every day, it seems, computers go to work
in a new field or new application. IBM com-
puters are working in such diverse fields as
business, law, medicine, oceanography,
traffic control, air pollution. Just about any
area you can name.
To somebody just starting out, this growth_
means exceptionally good chances for
advancement. Last year, for example, we
appointed over 4,000 managers-on
performance, not seniority. Here are four
ways you could grow with IBM:
Engineering and Science
"The interdisciplinary
environment keeps
you technologically
"Working in data process-
ing today pretty much means
you work in a broad spectrum
of technologies," says Nick
An Associate Engineer at IBM, Nick is a
1967 graduate in Electrical Engineering. He
designs circuits using MOSFET (Metal Oxide
Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor)
Nick says, "Your specialty at IBM can take
you into the front yard of half a dozen dif-
ferent fields. In my job, for example, I work
with systems design epgineers, chemists,
physicists, metallurgists, and programmers.
The diversity helps me keep up to date on
the latest technologies."
Career areas in engineering and science
at IBM include: Research, Design & Develop-

ment, Manufacturing, Product Test, Space
and Defense Projects, and Field Engineering.
You'll need at least a B.S. in anytechnical field.

"Working with
company presidents
is part of the job."

since he got his B.B.A. in June, 1968. Growth
wasn't the only reason,he chose IBM. He
says, "Ilearned that it's general practice at
IBM to promote from within and to promote
on merit alone. I like that.
"Another growth factor is the job itself," Joe
says. "During myfirst few years, I'll get experi-
ence in nearly every area of general account-
ing-Income & Expense, Balance Sheet,
and so on. I'll be learning how the company,
is structured and how it operates on a brdad
scale. That's exactly the kind of knowledge
I'll need to help me qualify for a manager's lob."
Career areas in finance at IBM include:
Financial Planning, Financial Analysis,
Pricing and Business Policy Development, /
Accounting, Information Systems, and
Internal Auditing. You'll need at least a
Bachelor's degree.

I'm pretty much the
IBM Corporation in
the eyes of my
customers," says
Andy Moran. "I
consider that fairly good for an engineer
who graduated only two years ago."
Andy earned his B.S.E.E. in 1966.Today,
he's a Marketing Representative with IBM,
involved in the planning, selling and installa-
tion of data processing systems.
Andy's customers include companies with
annual sales ranging from 20 million
to 120 million dollars. He often works
with executive vice-presidents and presi
dents. Andy says; "'At first I was a little
nervous about the idea of advising execu-
tives at that level. But by the time I finished
training, I knew I was equipped to do the job."
Career areas in marketing at IBM include:
Data Processing Marketing and Systems
Engineering, Office Products Sales, and
Information Records Sales. Degree require-
ment: B.S. or B.A. in any field.;

"It's a mixture
Of science
and art.7
"A computer

tically use-.
less until some-
body writes a
program for it,"
says Earl Wilson.



"You're in an ideal
spot to move
ahead fast."
"I've always figured my
chances for advance-
ment would be better
in a growth industry.
That's why I picked
IBM," says Joe Takacs.
Joe's been working
in general accounting

Earl got a B.A. in Modern a
Languages in June, 1967.
He's now an IBM programmer working on a
teleprocessing system that will link the
computerized management information
systems of several IBM divisions.
Earl defines a "program" as a set of
instructions that enables a computer to do a
specific job. "Programming involves
science," says Earl, "because you have to
analyze problems logically and objectively.
But once you've made your analysis, you
have an infinite variety of ways to use a
computer's basic abilities. There's all the
room in the world for individual expression."
Career areas in programming at IBM include:
Systems Programming, Applications Pro-
gramming, Programming Research, and
Internal Programming for IBM's own use.
You'll need at least a B.S. or B. A.
