First the two pitching aces, Stewart and Davis, have proved their ability in years here-to-fore, and " Two-Gun " Price of last year ' s Junior Gents has an unlim- ited assortment of stuff. The catching staff, Binion and May, constitute a pair of aggressive and fast thinking athletes. The infield from third on around, namely, Lindsey, Smith, Allday, and Crawford, have shown in the exhibition games that they can deliver the goods, or in other words " go get ' em in all directions. " Smith and Allday form a lightning double play combination around second. In the outfield Beam in left, Boydston, center and Connell in right, have been snatching fly balls in a graceful manner. Clanton, as utility outfielder has more than proved his value by delivering in the pinches as a real slugger. Duckworih, Hughes, Scales, and Meyers are other hard working men who strive conscientiously for the team ' s suc- cess. In actual battle the Gents have come from behind several times to win the game, and with this spirit, linked together with the flawless coaching of Coach Norton, only the worst kind of luck can spoil a successful year. 176

CENTENARY COLLEGE LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY 2 With " Jigger " Stewart allowing only five scattered hits and the fielders play- ing jam-up ball, the Gentlemen defeated L. S. U. in the first encounter of athletic teams from the two schools in a long period. On the offense, Beam starred with four hits out of five times at bat, and Lindsey poled out a long homer and a dou- ble. Grevenburg, the Tiger ace pitched for the visiting team. CENTENARY COLLEGE 5 LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY 3 it looked as though the University boys were going to win the final game as they were leading the Gents by a three to two margin up to the eighth inning, and Smith was hurling air tight ball. Clanton and Price were sent in as pinch hit- ters in the eighth and each came through with a long three bagger. When the smoke had cleared away the home boys had scored three runs and had cinched the game. It was a thriller from start to finish, featured by fast fielding on both sides. CENTENARY COLLEGE MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE 10 In this game the Gents were at the mercy of the Choctaw ' s pitcher, getting only two hits which came late in the game. Stewart, pitching for Centenary al- lowed ten hits, which netted six earned runs. Long hits for extra bases were partly responsible for the opponent ' s ten scores. Nothing can be said about the team, only it failed to hit and it seemed to be playing in hard luck that day. 178
