The unexpected phenomenon
of a Bo Schembechler-coached
Michigan team throwing the ball
has forced seasoned national ob-!
servers to go through the added.
trouble of learning just who it
is that catches it.
As a result, even avid fans
have been sent scurrying for
their programs when footballs
thrown by Dennis Franklin have
fallen from the sky into the
waiting hands of a mysterious
number 37 wearing maize and
blue.
Jim Smith, 'Smitty' to every-
one, wears number 37 for
Michigan and he should not go
unrecognized by Wolverine
backers after his performance
so far this season. The Michigan
coaching staff, however, didn't
need to see Smitty sneak
through the Michigan State cov-
erage and grab a long touch-
down pass as the first half
ended to be convinced of his
considerable talents.
As a matter of fact, they
thought enough of him at the
beginning of last season to
make him the starting split-
end. Last year Jim Smith was
a freshman; the first one ever
to start for Michigan under
Bo Schembechler.
"It was really an honor,"
offered Smitty modestly, "but
the day before the Michigan
State game I dived for a pass in
practice and separated my
shoulder. It was really a freak
accident."
That freak accident kept him
on the sidelines for the remain-
der of the 1973 season, his po-

Jacobson's introduces Hewlett-Packard HP-65
- the calculator you can program yourself
Here is the most advanced pocket computer/calculator that
requires no programming ability, and has the 'intelligence'
to learn and automatically execute the keystroke sequence
necessary to solve a problem. It provides 51 separate
pre-programmed function and date manipulation operations
which you can use directly from the keyboard. And, you can
take advantage of optional programs prepared by experts in
your field by inserting a magnetic card into the machine.. .
A Hewlett-Packard expert will be here to demonstrate the
nowers of all H.P. calculators and answer your questions, on
Thursday, October 17
from 5:00 P.M. to 8:30 P.M.

tradition, music for multi-dimensional choirs, campaign songs

from the great sentimental age.
