You pays your money...
... you gets your show (?)



John papanek....


BO SCHEMBECHLER is a very stubborn man. We should all
know that well enough by now.
In fact, he's so stubborn, and selfish too, that he thinks
winning a football game is more important than entertaining
the people who pay their good money to see it. Doesn't that
almost incite you to riot?
He's like that. He's not after the superficial glory that comes
with success. You won't find him selling Fords, or Wheaties, or
Stroh's on television. . There is no weekly "Bo Schembecher
Show." How can there be? Bo spends all 1 is time watching
films, drawing game plans, and tuning all those little tubes and
circuits humming in his brain week after week.
Bo is a technician, not a showman; a coach, not a
salesman. Selling tickets is Don Canham's affair, and he
seems to be doing okay.
So why is everyone around here squawking because Mich-
igan beat lorthwestern, 7-0, Saturday? I mean, they won
the game, for chrissakes!
In the locker room, Schembechler was beaming. "We won
the game," he said. "That's all we wanted to do; win and not
get anybody else injured." He was genuinely happy.
But curiously, in the stands, the fans booed; those who
maxtaged to stay awake, that is. They booed every time Mich-
igan ran one of the three plays they ran all afternoon: fullback
up the middle, tailback up the middle; wingback around the
end. Even I was bored, and what's worse there's no wine or
weed up in the press box.
Oh, there was excitement. You probably remember some if
you were there. There was a touchdown pass. Yeah, a real
touchdown pass and a beauty, too! Dennis Franklin hummed it
21 yards to Bo Rather, and he caught it. After that, I'm sorry
to say, the only other bit of excitement was an incompletion,
but a hell of an incompletion. It was a bomb; a real 40-yard
bomb that speedy Gil Chapman missed by a pubic hair.
From then on, the game was nothing but a drag. And the
funniest thing is that Schembechler engineered it to be that way.
"I didn't give Franklin a chance to show his stuff," Bo
said after the game. "I wanted to play it conservatively. If
we had scored again in the first half I would have opened
up the game. I never gamble when I'm one-up. I let them
When Bo says gamble, he means pass. If you put the
ball in the air, anybody in the world can catch it. To him
that's a gamble. When it's under somebody's arm, that's
ball control. Remember that.
Northwestern never did gamble, because they had no quar-
terback who could throw. So Bo went by his words and con-
trolled the ball the, rest of the game. He didn't give a damn
that Michigan never scored another point.
But let's get back to the point. Michigan is supposed to
score a whole bunch of touchdowns. Seniors, or people who got
here the same year as Schembechler have seen the Wolverines
lose just once in Michigan Stadium (Missouri in 1969). Over
the same three years, the Wolverines have averaged a robust
37 points a game, and have not scored as few as seven since
opening day, 1968, when they fell to California 21-7.
It was easy last year. The Wolverines had people like
Billy Taylor, Doughty, Seyferth, McKenzie, Brandstatter. A
lot of horses to make big holes and some to run through
them, too. 'iTis year it's a new team, and Schembechler has {
to have time to get to know them. He admits, "I knew as
little about this team as I did when I came in for the '69
Now he knows a little more. He was not happy with his .
offensive tackles Saturday, but Jim Coode was playing with an
injury and Paul Seymour (6-5, 250), played his first game at a
new position after being switched from tight end. He's going
to get a whole lot better.
Barring any more injuires, the Wolverines should get better,
Barring any more injuries, the Wolverines should get better,
them. That's why he was happy with a 7-0 win. He'd gladly take
the same score against UCLA Saturday.
He's a master tactician, not a gambler. If he played for the
world chess championship and won the first game, he'd take
draws in all the rest, just to win.
The spectators wouldn't like it, but then they're not paid
to win.

Me and me droogs, that is, Alan, Bobo, and Rose, Rose being a
real rosy-like devotchka, were sitting in the Korova Milkbar making
up our rassodocks what to do. We had all just hadseveral glasses of
the old moloko plus, which always got you up for some of the old
So off we went in a motorcar we had crasted earlier that evening,
driving into a land of trees and country dark. The motorcar ran real
horrorshow fast and gave you a nice warm teeing all through your
guttiwuts. On the way, o my brothers and only friends, we played
hogs of the road and tag with odd squealing things of the night.
Afterward in town sitting at a table stuffing his filthy litso with
lomticks of pizza was my arch-enemy, Maynard! I quickly tolchocked
him several times and as he lay groaning with his gulliver in his
hands he muttered, "Get your Gridde Pickings in to 420 Maynard by

midnight Friday and win a real horrorshow pizza from Mr. Pizza."

Big 10
With stampeding feet and a
cloud of dust, or rather a ball of
fur (tartan type) the Big Ten foot-
ball season eased into gear lastI
weekend as all ten conference
teams saw action.
While powerful Michigan retain-
ed its spot at the pinnacle of the
conference with a 7-0 squeaker
over Northwestern, Michigan State,
Indiana, and Woody's Bugaboos'
from Buckeye land squeezed in for
a share of the top spot.
In a contest that was billed as
a toss-up, Michigan, State slaugh-
tered Illinois at Champaign 24-0:
The Fightin' Illini never had a
chance as the Spartans ground out
251 yards on the ground while pass-
ing only eight times.
The Illini were hampered by an
injury to the ring finger of quar-
terback Mike Wells who was only
able to complete six of 19 passes
as the stitched up wound opened
up on the first play of the game.
The real hero of the game for
the Spartans was allpurpose man
Bill Simpson. He was by far the
Spartan's outstanding individual as
he returned a punt 48 yards for a
touchdown, ran 20 yards with a
misguided aerial for a second
score, broke up three pass plays,
and punted eight times for a 39
yard average.
Michigan State Coach Duffy
Daugherty commented, "Simpson
had a fine spring for us and we
knew he'd do well this fall. He's
really quick out there and does a
great job of punting." Duffy ear-
lier had threatened to re-name
Simpson Sampson (get it?) if he
played as well next week. In any
case, Simpson was named the Big

the baseball waiting for him on this stolen base attempt in the third inning of last night's game in
Boston. Aparicio broke from first on a Pat Dobson pitch and was easily thrown out at second by
catcher Johnny Oates. Baltimore defeated the Bosox, 5-2. The loss dropped Boston into second place
in the torrid American League East race, 1/2 game behind the division leading Detroit Tigers.

Traffic jams. Overcrowded
schools. Inadequate housing.
Increasing unemployment.
Pollution. Almost any urban,
social and environmental
problem you can name is fast
becoming a nightmare.
And in one way or another
affects us all.
Of course, these problems
would still exist even if popula
tion growth were zero, because
population growth is not their
basic cause. Therefore solving
them must obviously become
society's number one priority.
However, the pressures of an
ever-increasing population tend
to intensify our problems. And
make them harder to solve.
(By the year 2000, Census
Bureau projections estimate
our population could grow close
to 300 million. That's about 100
million more people to house,
transport, educate, feed and
clean up after!)
This intensifying of problems
by sheer numbers of people can
also occur in individual house-
holds. For just as "too many
people" make society's problems
more difficult to solve, the
problems of raising a family
are not made easier when there
are "too many children."
Under the circumstances, we
feel there's only one reason for
.t "1111a n 1 -%r a .M

, ,/

There's also only one time to
have that'child: when it's
wanted.When it can be a
welcome addition rather than
an accidental burden.
Unfortunately, research has
consistently shown that not
enough Americans (from every
walk of life) are aware of the
benefits of family planning.
Or even how to go about it.
That's what we're all about.
And frankly, we can use all
the help we can get.
Especially from thoughtful
people who understand how
unplanned pregnancies can
intensify the already severe
problems society has still
to solve.
People who will, at the very
least, help others understand
that the population problem not
only has a cause. It has victims.
