Phelan Of Purdue Chosen President
Of New Organization; Wisconsin
Mentor Is Secretary
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Dec. 3-Relieved of the
hectic annual struggle for choice foot-
ball dates, the football coaches of the

Western conference devoted the open-
ing session of their annual meeting
to organization of an association
through which they speak as a unit
on gridiron problems. Jimmy Phelan
of Purdue was chosen president and
Glen Thistlethwaite of Wisconsin, se-
cretary, the offices rotating among the
conference representatives hereafter
in alphabetical order.
Through their new organization, the
Western conference football coaches
association, the gridiron mentors sent
word to the national rules committee
that they were not in favor of any
more tinkering with the football rul-
es. And, it was added, if any changes
are decided upon at the New York
meeting later this month, they ought
to be held up for one year so the
coaches, and especially the officials,
will have a chance to find out what
they are all about, before they are
confronted with new plays and new
The nearest the coaches came to
agreeing upon a recommendation for
a change was the 5 to 4 vote which
turned down the suggestion of Coach
Robert Zuppke of Illinois, that the
goal posts be moved back to the goal
line. Zuppke made a strong speech in
favor of his motion, and won the sup-
port of three other coaches, who
agreed with him on the necessity of
preserving the foot part of football
in developing kickers. The majority,
however, decided to try out the goal
posts as they were for one more

Consideration of Michigan's can-

man has been left until last.
Gilbert and Oosterbaan were not
only stars but valuable stars. -
The thrice-all-American leader of
the Wolverines would have been a hard
man to do without. He was indispen-
sible on defense, his work there being
phenomenal. On offense he was half
of the main Michigan scoring com-
bination. Also he was still the great
threat as pass receiver, and further,
could plunge.
Gilbert, who earned the title
"Elusive Louie" because of his
shiftiness, was a terror in broken
field and at running back punts
as well as figuring as big scorer.
He was a great defensive man,
a sure tackler and without equal
against passes.
He blocked perfectly and his punt-
