Michigan has three "if" teams:
the 880-team of Breidenbach or
Hall, Smith, Piel and Culver; the
mile foursome of Balyeat, Leutritz,
Bernard, Kelley, or Rae, and Brei-
denbach; and the shuttle hurdle
quartet of Hall, Sherm Olmstead,
Ray Gauthier and Kelley. If the
mile team isn't too far out of shape,
if the hurdlers go right, and if Piel
is sufficiently recovered from an in-
fection, all three can win, but Coach
Doherty will be gratified if they fin-
ish second.
Schwarzkopf, Don Canham, Cul-
ver, George Ostroot and Charlie
Decker will be Michigan's big guns
in the individual events. The Wol-
verine captain will have to defeat
Oklahoma A. & M.'s star distance
runner, Forest Efaw, but Schwarz-
kopf has yet to lose to the Aggie1
ace, and shouldn't lose this time.
Canham will get his hardest com-
petition of the year in the personsi
of Don Boydston,_ Aggie sophomore
who has jumped six feet eight and
one-half inches this season, and Ted1
Leonas, Notre Dame captain, who
is back in real high-jumping form
again. Boydston will be the favorite
but Canham is capable of springing
a surprise.

Coach Fisher's plans called for
Jack Barry and Lyle Bond to start
the contests with the Big Ten's 1939
runnersup. Attributing Barry's de-
feat Monday to an off day, and con-
vinced of Bond's effectiveness by
the bespectacled righthander's ster-
ling relief performances in the Wis-
consin and Michigan Normal games,
Fisher expressed confidence in the
Wolverines' chances of sweeping the
two-game series.

"We trounced Hundley, 11-1, lastj
year and scored five runs off Gentil
even though he did beat us, so they
shouldn't prove too tough," he spec-
ulated as the team left yesterday.
With only an even break in the
two Conference games played thus
far, Michigan must take both games
from Indiana in order to rate serious
consideration for the Big Ten title.

From The Feed Bag,...
W ELL, they can call of the Ken-
tucky Derby right now and throw
the laurel wreath around Bimelech's
neck and the $50,000 added into Col-
onel E. R. Bradley's pocket. And if
the other owners are smart, there
won't be much "added" since it comes
from the starting fees which must
be paid.
Big Bim, if all goes as it should,
will bring Bradley's colors home
in front for the fifth time-some-
thing no other owner has had
done. (In fact, even if the son
of Black Toney-La Troienne
doesn't win, Bradley is safe be-
cause no other owner has won
four times.)
There was little room for doubt last
year when, in six starts, he was un-
beaten and the leading juvenile
money winner. He became the short-
est priced winter-book favorite in
history with five dollars getting you
eight if you had him and he won.
Early in the spring, however, rumors
began to leak out of the Idle Hours
farms that Bimelech wasn't able to
work out, that he was untried, that
he was stale, that he was homesick,
lovesick and heartsick. And just to
prove his critics were perfectly cor-
rect, he went out yesterday and
romped home, two-and-a-half lengths
in front of a well-liked Roman in
the Bluegrass Stakes.

Somewhat pessimistic over his
chances in the forthcoming Big Ten
tennis season, Coach LeRoy Weir
was prepared for the worst as his
netmen open their season today
against Purdue.
Before leaving for Lafayette,
Coach Weir said, "I'll be satisfied

reason for his pessimism, for his
team, already riddled by ineligibil-
ities and injuries, has had virtually
no practice. Rain kept the team
inactive during most of the spring
training trip, and has also pre-
vented the team from engaging in
any extensive outdoor practice.
The way in which the team will
line up for the opener is still very
much in doubt. Jim Tobin's knee
is far from healed and may buckle
on the least provocation. This leaves
the number one position to Captain
Sam Durst. Ordinarily this would
not add any gray hairs to the
coach's head, but of late Durst's play
has been very erratic.
Bob Jeffers, one of the most im-
proved players on the squad, will
take the number three slot, and will
team with Bud Dober to play the
number three doubles. Wayne Stille,
Tom Gamou and Harry Kohl will
cover the numbers four, five and
