Once Coach A nd Pupil

Individual Work Stressed by Coaches
In Stiff Practice Session
Coach Little and his assistants yes-
terday afternoon varied the program
that has marked the practice of the
Varsity squad since Monday when
hey discarded the Northwestern plays
hat they have been demonstrating,
and ran the gridders through a drill
lesigned exclusively to correct mdi-
vidua1 faults and polish up the ac-
ion of the Wolverine eleven.
The workout consisted of what the
coaches termed a. "pseudo-dummy
acrimmage." The freshmen opposed
:he Varsity while the Michigan plays
were checked over and the capacity of
ach man on the team considered.
'he work of the team as a whole, the
0ersonal performance of each man,
apd the function of every individual
n every play were all dwelt upon at
.ength. The result was evident at
Ee end of the practice when the team
Was going through its plays with al-
post perfect co-ordination. The Wol-
terine squad is at the peak of its mid-
eason form, and new plays are run
>ver as easily as the age-old forma-
ions that are known to be pets of
.he Maize and Blue. Numerous forn-
ttions have been added to the string
ince the Minnesota game, and will be
unleashed against Northwestern
hould the Purple resistance be stiff
nough.. .
Today's practice will be something
f a repetition of the drill that was
n yesterday's program as Coach Lit-
1e is anxious that each man be as
well-versed in the intricacies of his
osition as possible. The first string
eceived a thorough going-over yes-
erday .more attention being given to
he various points of individual per-
ormance than has been on schedule
ince the Illinois game. Coach Little
evoted his attentions to the backs
nd center, while Coach Wieman work-
d with the line. Coaches Barker,
xmery, Hayes, and Blott took the men
ide for individual instruction. ,
Tomorrow's game will probably see
he same lineup for Michigan that was
used against Minnesota except that
Captain Steger will be at his old place
t half, and Walt Kunow will play
ackle instead of Babcock. Steger is
n perfect shape, having recovered
rom the injury to his foot sustained
against Wisconsin, but Babcock's
and is not in good enough shape
o warrant his being used tomorrow.
The Northwestern squad will leave
Evanston early this morning, and will
tay in Jackson overnight. The Pur-
)le aggregation will reach Ann Arbor
t about noon tomorrow. A short drill
n Jackson this afternoon will top off
heir preparation for the clash to-
norrow. The loss of their two ends
eaves a bad hole in their line, but
Chistlethwate's charges are confident
f their ability to hold the Wolverines
nd possibly to win.
tars from Fast and West Opposed
In Plans for Benefit

Walter Eckersall, foremost among the

Captain Kerb Steger and Coach Glen Thistlethwaite
Four years ago Herb Steger, Michigan's star halfback and captain,
and Glen Thistlethwaite, head coach of the Northwestern team which will
engage the Wolverines tomorrow, had little thought of matching their wits
against one another. The above photograph was taken in 1920 when Herb
Steger was a star of the Oak Park high school team, national interschol-
astic champions, and Thistlethwaite was coaching the team.
