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

JTHE lONCOPIN c !ii Frank Boydston, Outfield " C " Frank is playing his third and last season as a regular on the Centenary team. His won- derful throwing arm and his good judgment on fly balls as well as his hard hitting have made him conspicuous in the team ' s play. Frank is serving as co-captain with Glenn Crawford. Glenn Crawford, " C " First Base This year, as in other seasons, " Ham ' s " versatility has been a great aid to the team. How- ever, " Ham " has been allowed to remain in one position much longer than usual, and he has shown up especially well. He is a fast and graceful first-sacker, covering a large territory in a faultless manner. Albert Beam, " C " Outfield This season closes the fourth year of successful baseball playing for " Ab. " Beam cannot be appraised too highly, because he is worthy. He is a heavy, consistent hitter and a versatile fielder. Marshall May, " C " Catcher In aiding " Dutch " with the work behind the bat, " Dummy " has always been ready and eager to do his share toward winning ball games for Centenary and he has contributed some good work toward the cause. Files Binion, " C " Catcher " Dutch ' s " fighting spirit and his good judgment have done wonders in steadying the pitch ing staff and keeping team play at its highest pitch. He knows his pitchers and he works hard to get their best efforts. He never lets down in the fight, but plays hard and encourages his team mates. Mi 179
