NOW YOU CAN
Before you gaduate from college! Because now, you can com-
bine service in te Army Reserve or National Guard with Army
ROTC. It's called the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP).
And, depending on your academic year when you enter, SMP
can help you earn over $6,500.
Here's how it works. If you qualify and a vacancy is available,
you become a member of an Army Reserve or National Guard unit
as an officer trainee and, at the same time, enroll in the Army
ROTC advanced course at your college. Your Reserve or Guard
membership will pay you at the minimum level of Sergeant E-5, and
you'll receive $100 a month durin the regular school year as an
Army ROTC advanced course cadet.
A the end of your second year of advanced ROTC, you'll be
commissioned a second lieutenant and, assuming there's a vacancy,
serve with a Guard or Reserve unit while you complete the require-
ments for your college degree. Upon graduation, you may con-
tinue service with a Guard or Reserve unit while pursuing your
civilian career, or you can, if you prefer, compete or active duty as
an Army officer.
So if you'd like to earn over $6,500 while you're still in college,
get into SMP. Because SMP can help you do it. You can bank on it!

Science at your school.
STINGY DEFENSE VS. POTENT OFFENSE
Irish threaten Blue power play
By GARY LEVY
Power play performance may prove
to be the determining factor when the
undefeated Michigan icers tangle with
WCHA rival Notre Dame tonight and
tomorrow night in South Bend.
The matchup features the
Wolverines' advantageous power play
versus the Irish's stingy, shorthanded
defense. Michigan has accumulated 19
power play goals in 35 attempts, while
Notre Dame's opposition has netted
only five goals in 39 attempts while the
Irish played shorthanded.
"WE HAVE TO be able to contain
Michigan's offense and do a good job
when we're a man short," said Notre
Dame Coach Charles 'Lefty' Smith.
Irish defensemen will have to keep
their eyes on Wolverine freshman
Bruno Baseotto, who seems to thrive on
power play opportunities. Nine of
Baseotto's 12 goals have been scored
while Michigan had a man advantage.
The power play has also been
somewhat of a weakness offensively for
the Irish, having converted on only five
of twenty attempts.
"WE'VE DONE WELL offensively,
but because of injuries, our power play
hasn't been effective," said Smith.
"We've been hit with injuries just like
Michigan was last year."
"We had three balanced lines, but in-

juries have taken their toll as far as still
having that balance," Smith added:
Injuries have not had as severe an ef-
fect on the Wolverines this season. Gor-
die Hampson is still out with a broken
hand and defenseman Mark Perry is
nursing a sprained ankle.

you're on the road," explained Farrell.
"If you split all of your road games and
win them all at home, you're going to
win a lot of games."
Michigan remained atop the WCHA
standings with last weekend's 5-2, 3-2
sweep of Minnesota. The Irish im-
proved their league record to 2-2 (3-2
overall), with their sweep of Minnesota-
Duluth last weekend.
"Right now, we find ourselves in a
position of being able to control our own
destiny," said Smith. "If we win both
games, we'll be tied for first place.
Anything less and the hole we dug for
ourselves by losing two to Denver the
first week becomes that much deeper."
BLUE LINES: Going into this
weekend's contests, Baseotto is the
Wolverines' leading scorer with 19 poin-
ts. Baseotto's eight WCHA goals is tops
in the league and he ranks third in
scoring with 10 points (8-2-10).
Murray Eaves follows with 15 points (5-
10-15) and Dan Lerg with 14(6-8-14).
Freshman goaltender Paul Fricker
ranks second in the league in goals-
against average at 3.54. Fricker was
named WCHA Player of the Week for
his performance against Minnesota,
allowing just four goals while making
Faceoff Friday night is scheduled for
8:00 p.m., while tomorrow night's game
is set for 7:30 p.m.
THIS SERIES will be a test of sorts
for Michigan as the icers play their first
conference road games of the season.
"It will be interesting to see how the
team will react," said Coach Dan
Farrell. "We've just got to keep playing
the way we've been playing."'
Farrell said he would be satisfied if
his icers won one of the two contests at
