The other two incentives in
Wilmore's final choice of Mich-
igan were the quality of coach-
ing and the caliber of the uni-
versity's educational facilities.
"I know from Michigan's re-
putation that it had a good aca-
demic background - that was a
big 'factor." Now a radio and
television major, Wilmore val-
ues his college education, a n d
states assuredly that he "would

But, he would, naturally, like
to make it to the pros some day.
"Everybody likes to better him-
self and if the chance came
along I'd take it." But his na-
tural tendency to underestimate
himself forces him to add, "I
don't know if I could make it."
For the time being, though,
Wilmore is interested in play-
ing good basketball for Michi-
gan. He succinctly evaluates the
Big Ten as "hard," and, is es-
pecially unwilling to predict his
own success in league com-
His 44 point performance in
the Big Ten opener is Wilmore's
career high, for the moment, and
lifted his season average up to
24 points per game. That effort,
too, he shrugs off as, "lucky."
Although he stands only 6-31/2
Wilmore also does a very effec-
tive job rebounding, having gar-
nered 8.4 per game to rank
second on the team.
There has been some incon-
sistency in Wilmore's perform-
ance with the varsity - in two
outings he has been held to less
than 10 points, and he has foul-
ed out of four games. Wilmore
attributes these problems to in-
experience, and says in the good
spirit of a team player that his
substitutes have played as well
m~ore's main concern and he is
careful not to say anything
which stresses his own import-
ance over that of - the team as
a whole. That kind of attitude
combined with his natural abil-
ities makes Wilmore into a win-
ner and should help to make
Michigan a winning team.

KIRK ON BRIDGE
-toil in trouble
By LEE KIRK
When your opponents get a lit-
tle over-zealous in their bidding,
there is always the temptation to
double and set the pants off them.
Sometimes, though, the double
serves no other purpose than giv-
ing the plot away before the hand
has begun to unfold.
The crass double often guides
your foe to the winning line of
play when a more mundane ap-
proach would leave him a trick
or two short. West's double in to-'
day's hand was one of those that
should have helped declarer, but
he went astray on a difficult hand,
deluded by a'gift horse that turn-
ed out to have no teeth.'
Why West chose a spade is un-'
known, as it is obvious that South
has the ace of spades. A diamond
return might have lured declarer
into an immediate finesse, and
East would have won and !return-
ed a club to set up the heart ten
for the eventual setting trick.
The spade return turned out to
be equally effective, as it present-
ed declarer with'the gift horse of
a free finesse. He let the spade
ride around to his ten and led a
small heart to dummy's queen.
Declarer then cashed dummy's
ace of clubs, discarding a dia-
mond from his own hand. West
trumped in with the ten, and East
later got his diamond k i n g to
score the setting trick.
West's double should have.
alerted declarer to the possibility
that the club eight was singleton.
If so. South should be sure he
doesn't get stuck in dummy with
noway back to his hand.
Thus, after taking the spade ten
and the heart queen, he should
ieturn to his hand to draw out
West's last trump. The safest way
back is to overtake the spade king
with the ace!
He then draws the last trump
with, the jack and leads a small
diamond to the ace. He must not
finesse, for East will then win and
lead a spade to his partner's queen
for the setting trick.
Declarer should then cash the
club ace, throwing his last spade,
and lead the diamond queen. East
can have his diamond king when
he pleases, but North-South will
have their doubled game.
Even this line of play isn't fool-
proof. If East has the spade queen
and brilliantly plays it on West's
initial spade lead, declarer will
later be stuck in dummy. He can
try to cash the club ace, or he can
give up the diamond king, but
either way, West gets the heart
ten and the contract is lost.
The best line of play is for
South to take the spade king im-
mediately, cash the heart queen,
return to his hand with the spade
ace, draw the last trump, lead to
the diamond ace, sluff the last
spade on the club ace, and then
give up the diamond. Whew!
