THISTLETHIAITE SLATED TO TAKE POSITION
AS' HEAD FOOTBALL COACH AT- WISCONSIN

Northwestern CoacI lMay Take New
Position On Expiration Of
Contract In June
DUNNE ALSO CONSIDERED
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Jan. 5.-Glenn Thistle-
thwaite, who directed Northwestern to
a tie for the 1926 Big Ten football I
cliampionship, is slated to succeed
george Little as grid coach of the Un-!
iversity of Wisconsin, with official an-
nouncement expected from Madison
today.
Th.stlethwaite's five year contractl
'with the Purple expires this year, and
according to prevailing reports he will
assume command of the Madison squad
next fall.
Little, who went to Wisconsin two
years ago from the University of Mich-
igan, where he was assistant to "Hurry
Up" Yost, heretofore has served both
as grid coach and athletic director,
but will center his entire attention to
directorate duties in the future.
Herb Steger, backfield coach at I
Northwestern, is spoken of as a possi-
ble successor' to Thistlethwaite at
Northwestern. If appointed, Steger
will be the youngest football coach in
the Conference.
He starred both as a prep school
player in Oak Park and later for three
years at the University of Michigan at:
Halfback, being named twice on all-
western teams. He has been backfield
coach at Northwestern the last sea-
son and was credited with developing'
Captain-elect Gustafson and "Tiny"
,Lewis.
Thesformer Wolveri'ne player's name
was mentioned almost simultaneously
with yesterday's first intimations ofj
Wisconsin's bid for his chief's services.
At the same time it was reported1
that Northwestern's board had been
considering R. J. Dunne, line coach, asI
successor to the much sought after
"Gloomy Gus," but that Purple officials
had learned Dunne had been made an
offer by Harvard.

winner of the British amateur tourn-

Golf ;Tourney Draws I
300To Los Angeles
(By Associated Press)
Los Angeles, Jan. 5.-Six Los An-
Sgobes golf courses teemedl with activi-
ty today as the hour approached for
the preliminaries to the $10,000 open
tournament. Nearly 300 players, both
amateur and professional, represent-
ing the best from 26 states, England
and Canada were entered.
Thirty-six holes of qualifying play
on the courses of the Los Angeles,;
Brentwood, California, Wiltshire, Mid-
wick and Hillcrest Country clubs will
determine before night the 128 players
to qualify for the start in the 72 holes
of play at El Caballero Country club
Friday. About forty of the 128 al-
ready are chosen, these being the for-
eign players and leaders in the na-
tional open and local champion tour-
naments of the past year who are ex-
empt from qualifying play by virtue
of their past performances.
These top-notchers are practicing]
on other courses. Out of the 128
players who qualify for the entry list,1
only 64 will get into the final 36 hole
championship fight Sunday. That fieldI
will comprise the 64 low scores and
ties at the end of the first 36 holes at
Cabellero, 18 of which will be played
Friday and 18 Saturday.j
The one day interval in the play,{
Thursday, will be devoted to practice
on the various courses.
The El Cabalerro Country club of-
fers a real championship par 72
course, 36 out and 36 in. Its record
was set last November 19 by Jack
Tarrant, who then went over it in
66. Greens are in excellent shape, a
bit fast now after the cold weather,
but with rising temperature prevail-
ing it promises to offer its best chal-
lenge to the entrants.

Poisoning Robs KeenI
t;Of Star 125 PounderI
Wrestling prospects have been con-
siderably dimmed by the loss of Sol-
omon, star 125 pounder of last year's
team, who has been suffering from in-
ternal blood poisoning caused by a
bruised ankle which he sustained in
practice. Although he has been re-.
leased from the hospital, Solomon
will be out of the lineup indefinitely.
Coach Keen reports that 16 mem-
hers of the Varsity squad reported for
work a week before school reopened,

week of intensive training.
Efforts will be made to reduce the
number of candidates to the two hest'
in each division before the end of this
week. Every member of the Varsityl
squad will be required to make his
regular wrestling weight Monday, andi
tryouts will be held the following day
to determine the men who are to
make the trip into Iowa the following1
week-end.1
Baker, Michigan's stellar 115
pounder for the past two years, and
Kailes, all-campus champion, stand,
out as the pick of the 115 pound class,
although the \latter may wrestle at
125 pounds until Solomon recovers.
Naglekirk, Solomon's understudy last!
year, Hardin, and Ulasick are thet
other possibilities in the 125 pound'
division.
The fight for honors in the next two'
divisions is unusually keen. Watson,
of last year's Varsity team, and Wolfe
appear to be about equal in the 135
pound class, while Galsterer, 145!
pounder of last year's team, Sauer,
all-campus champion, and Warren,.
star freshman of last year, are the;
best in the 145 pound division. Al-
though handicapped by an injured'
shoulder, Warren has reported fog
work and is expected to make a
strong bid when he gets into condi-
tion.
Catain Donohoe will represent Mich-
igan in the 158 pound class. The 175
pounder and the heavyweight will Ike
selected from the following group:
Hager, Greiling, and Prescott. Hager
and Prescott are the all-campus
champions in the 175 and the heavy-
weight divisions, while Greiling, an
AMA man last year, may be used in
either division.

Herb Steger
Another former Michigan grid star
and pupil of "Hurry Up" Yost is
about to assume the place of head
football coach. With the official an-
nouncement that Glenn Thistlethwaite,
has been selected as head coach at
Wisconsin to take George Little's
place, a paralled announcement is ex-
pected from the Evanston authorities
of Herbert Steger's appointment as
head mentor for the Wildcats.
Steger was one of the best of Mich-
igan's long line of great halfbacks.
His heroic work in the Illinois game
of 1924 when his team met defeat is
one that Illini fans will never forget.
Since his graduation from Michigan
he has been in charge of the Purple
backfield men.
