" BILL " WARD, Half, Sophomore When speed was a necessity, Bill had no trouble in filling the bill. He ' s one of those kind who drive hard, fast and often. The biggest surprise furnished Shreveport circles in years was the S. M. U. -Cen- tenary game played on October 8. A crowd of approximately 6,000 fans saw the Centenary Gentlemen apset football dope by romping to a 21 to 12 victory over the Ponies from Dallas. The Gents scored their victory by out-playing the Texans. In gaining ground through the line of scrimmage or around ends, in overhead attacks and in punting the Gents were clearly superior to the visitors. Their performances were so sensational and so surprising, the crowd was sent homeward bound staggering from the maze of the brilliant spectacle. The S. M. U. game gave the Gents the spirit needed for a successful year. They could not accept defeat after that. " SKINNY " SCANLON, Quarter, Sophomore Although this was Scanlon ' s first year with the varsity squad, he proved himself to be of great help in the long chain of Gentlemen victories. Always dangerous when in the open field.

" CHARLIE " SMITH, Quarter and Half, Junior The past season was Charlie ' s first as quarterback, and his ability to handle the team stood out as a promi- nent feature of his playing. Like Jefferies his inter- ference was very effective. He is an excellent passer and a very capable line plunger and broken field runner. The Gentlemen fought their second victory 2G to over the Millsaps Majors on October 1. The game was their first defense of S. I. A. A. grid champoionship The contest was harder fought than the score indicates and the plays jammed into the four 15-minute periods furnished many thrills. The Gents did not find the Majors so hard in the first quarter when they hung up two touchdowns and three first downs but when the Millsaps coach began sending in reserve linemen in the second half, Cen- tenary was in trouble. It was on an exchange of punts in the early part of the second half that the Gents gained their advantage that led to a score. The real fighting spirit of the Gents brought them through. " JAKE " HANNA, Half and Quarter, Sophomore During his first season as a member of the Gent ' s squad he distinguished himself by his aggressiveness both on the offense and defense. He is an excellent pass re- ceiver, an accurate passer, and a hard plunging back. He was given All-Conference and All-Louisiana berth at half position. Hanna and Allday were Centenary ' s leading ground gainers and scorers. He was given honor- able mention for All-American by several sport writers.

V iM iVi irm if nui raffi ' ? r " ■, Qtr i , :::: $£%:, t T - if -fc J? : t ' WV " LOUIE " JENNINGS, End, Sophomore His long and accurate punts were responsible for much of the ground gained by the Gents. He was also given All-Conference and All-Louisiana end berths. His offensive ability was responsible for many gains made against the opposition. Records show his defensive play to be equally as well as his offensive ability. Jennings was given honorable mention for All-American. Before a crowd estimated at 4,000, the Gents defeated the Southern College Moccasins 26 to 0. It was one of the worst drubbings Southern had ever received at home. Centenary began the game with a touchdown by receiving the ball on the kickoff, and completing a pass — Hanna to Hamel. Centenaiy outguessed and outsmarted the Mocassins and the one play, brazen in its conception and execution, turned into a gridiron riot a game that might have otherwise been a tough one for the Gents to win. The Mocassins were dazzled by the terrific offensive drives given by the Gents. " CRACKER " BROWN, End, Sophomore This was Cracker ' s first season on the varsity. Originally a back but proved himself a very capable and outstanding wingman. He should develope into a great end for next season.
