NEWDIS TRIB UTION SYSTEM
By BOB WARREN
"We're trying to give the students
as fair a shot as possible at getting
season tickets this year," said ticket
manager Al Renfrew in reference to
this year's upcoming basketball tick-
Due to the overwhelming success
of last year's team performance, the
ticket office, anticipates a higher
demand for basketball season tickets
than last year when Crisler Arena
was packed for almost every home
"WE'VE RAISED the student al-
lotment of tickets this year to 5,100
from 4,800, but we don't expect too
many more students than that re-
questing tickets," continued Ren-
In the event of a student demand of
more than 5,100 tickets, all applica-
tions for tickets will be placed in a
lottery. Those who lose out in the
lottery will have to seek scalpers and
the scarce supply of game day tickets
that are available.
This year the procedure will be as
follows. Friday, October 21 and
Saturday, October 22 from 8 a.m. to 4

Boo contends ...
Leach is best
SUALLY BO SCHEMBECHLER lets his team speak for itself. His team
U is 6-0 and one of only two unbeaten major colleges in the country.
He is happy his squad is ranked number one.
Bo must be sick of the question "Just how good is Michigan?"
When asked, he gets to the point, but doesn't dwell on it:
"We looked pretty good today didn't we,"
"We could have been better,"
"We played well, but we still have some work to do,"
"We're a good team and we can get better."
Well, for two and one half years his starting quarterback has pretty well
spoken for himself. With 39 yards this Saturday Rick Leach will beconie the
new Michigan all-time leader in total yardage. The junior signal caller has
engineered the Wolverines into two bowl games.
At his weekly press luncheon yesterday, Schembechler decided, to let
everyone know just what he thinks of his gutsy southpaw quarterback.
He talked a little about Minnesota and how injuries are catching up with his
team, but he talked a lot about Leach. In fact, when he talked about his quar-
terback you could see pride and sincerity in his eyes. Schembechler was
serious about what he was saying.
"I called Leach into the office Saturday after our quarterback meeting
and talked to him," Schembechler said. "I told him that one thing worries
me, that he was going to try too hard to please his critics. I wanted to tell him
something. I told him he is the best quarterback in the nation because he is a
"Leach can beat you with his arm, his legs, his leadership and com-
petitive spirit," Schembechler said. "He is everything you could want from
a player taking the ball from center. The kid can hurt you in a lot of ways."
Sometimes the job Leach does running the option is taken for granted.
When he holds the ball until the last second and then pitches to Harlan
Huckleby, the latter gets credit for the fifteen yard pick-up.
Against Michigan State, Leach kept the ground game moving faultlessly
despite a pouring rain. Leach does get noticed when he fakes and keeps the
ballqnthe option - slWit wixg through thedefense for yardage.
This year the southpaw has been throwing more effectively. Schembech-
ler maintains Leachas improved every year since he came to Ann Arbor.
This year he has thrown six touchdown passes - giving him a total of 22 for
his career. But forget the passing - he has guided the ground game to nearly
300 yards per contest.
"Hey, I've called a lot of plays that he has suggested," Schembechler
said. "He knows -what is going on out there. Th'e first two years I just wanted
him to learn and execute."
In spring practice Schembechler was concerned with developing re-
ceivers due to the graduation of Jim Smith. He claims there was never any
question about Leach's passing ability.
"You should see Leach in practice nailing those passes in there,"
Schembechler said. "A quarterback needs catches like the ones Doug Marsh
and Gene Johnson made on Saturday (for touchdowns)."
Schembechler really doesn't think the media has given Leach a fair
"I don't think he's been treated right," Schembechler said. "You people
are overwhelmed with whatever comes across in the NCAA statistics. I
wouldn't trade him for any guy playing college football in the United
You think he should be an All-American, Bo?
"You certainly couldn't say he doesn't deserve it."
You think he is a candidate for the Heisman Trophy as a junior, Bo?
"In my. opinion yes, and I wouldn't care if he was a freshman."
, You think he would make a good pro quarterback, Bo?
"Is Kenny Stabler a good quarterback?"
Well, is he the best quarterback you have ever coached?
"He is going to be," Schembechler said. "I've had Leach with me so
long. I get along with him so well it isn't funny."
Schembechler thinks he has something special in Rick Leach. Yesterday
ii let everybody know-about it for a change.

p.m., students should go to the Track
and Tennis Building to fill out an
application for season basketball
tickets. Each person must present
cash or check payable to the Michi-
gan Athletic Department at that
It does not matter when a student
gets to the Track and Tennis Building
during those two days to fill out an
application, because the applications
will only be organized by class
standing (i.e., senior, junior, etc.)
IF THE NUMBER of applicants
exceeds the student allotment, a
random lottery will be held to deter-
mine the persons who will receive
tickets. If a student loses in the
lottery, he or she will be refunded the
$14 cost for season tickets.
Several weeks later the dates and
times of student pickups will be
announced. The pickup will then be
held at the Athletic Department
Ticket Office at the corner of Hoover
This week's AP college football poll
provides no real surprises as the
Michigan Wolverines and the Texas
Longhorns retain their respective
number one and two rankings. This
week, however, the Wolverines re-
ceived more first place votes, 47, up
three from last week.

to acquire senior priority tickets be-

THOSE PERSONS wishing to sit in
groups can send one person with four
application receipts to pick up tickets
at the Ticket Office. If there are eight
students who want tickets together,
two people should be sent with four
receipts each and so on down the line
in multiples of four.
"Some people must be upset that
we set the student ticket ceiling at
5,100, but last year 4,800 wanted
tickets and we can't forecast the
team being too much better than last
year's great team," Renfrew pointed
"Two years ago only 2,000 stu-
dents wanted season tickets. Why
should we increase any more when
we've doubled the allotment in the
last two years?"
RENFREW EMPHASIZED that
the faculty, staff and general public
will not apply for tickets until the
student demand is fulfilled. Only
non-students who had season tickets
last year will be guaranteed tickets
for this year.
"Although we had a great season
last year and a comparable ticket
sale, we could suffer the fate that
Indiana has suffered this year.
Indiana's ticket sale has dropped
from 18,000 last year to only 10,000
this year," Renfrew concluded.
' More than likely, studrents who fill
out applications 4I1 6s60 ticket'
will get them, so fo w the proce-
dures and enjoy O.rr's boys.

Mathematics and language majors...
Take the.PQTand find out.
If you are receiving a degree in mathematics or in a
foreign language before September 1978, a career
with the National Security Agency could begin with a
training program in one of several different career
fields. That's why the Professional Qualification Test
is so helpful in identifying the NSA field where your
aptitude is strongest.
You must register by November 5 in order to take the
PQT on campus-it will not be given again during the
school year. By scoring well on this test, you will
qualify for an employment interview. During the
interview, an NSA representative will discuss the
role you might play in furthering this country's
communications security or in producing vital foreign
The PQT helps to measure your aptitude for career
areas such as:
LANGUAGES -Foreign languages, are valuable tools
for research, analysis, and documentation projects.
Advanced training in language (perhaps a new
language) can be expected.
COMMUNICATIONS-Developing and testing logical
designs for global communications is a unique
pursuit. It follows that your training programs in this
,area will be both extensive and esoteric.
PROGRAMMING-Our vast communications analysis
projects could not be effectively managed without
the latest computer hardware/ software and. people
who know how to use them.
PICK UP A PQT BULLETIN at your college placement
office. It contains a registration form which you must
mail prior to November 5 in order to take the test on
