Brown suffering with a high fever, the Gents went into the game an inspired team. For three quarters the two evenly matched teams fought each other to a standstill, with neither having any decided advantage. Often the Gents lost fine opportunities to score by severe penalties. Several times when in the shadow of their own goal line, the impregnable Maroon and White line repulsed the Aggie attack and threw the opposing backs for losses. Finally, in the last quarter, the Gents marched down the field to the 15 yard line, from where Smith passed to Hamel for the winning touchdown, thus administering the first defeat to the Aggies on their own Kyle Field in many years. The feature of the game was the brilliant work of Allday and Hanna bebind perfect interference of Smith and Jef- feries, with the entire line outplaying the famous Aggie front wall.

The Bulldogs put up a game, but hopeless fight against the more powerful and experienced Gentlemen. Again the entire squad was used and all showed to a good advantage for so early in the year. Coaches Norton and Hoy had mentioned the need for a real hard struggle be- fore the big Texas A. M. game. Presenting a team of young giants, the Daniel Baker Hill Billies more than provided that struggle. Only after a hard fight from behind were the Gents able to nose out the winners, 19-12.

Aided by their powerful line, the great Wier Washam and Gilliland proved too much for the weakened Gents and ran up a 27-7 score. Hamel prevented a shutout by snatch- ing a long pass behind the goal line for a touchdown in the third quarter. Hard luck seemed to follow the team for as fast as one set of cripples were well, others were added to the hospital squad. The next week found the crippled Gents in Chattanooga to meet the strong Chattanooga University team. After leading at the end of the half bv a score of 7-0, the Gents weakened in the last half and were defeated by a score of 21-14. Expecting to shake off their jinx against Birmingham-Southern, the Gentlemen were held to a 0-0 tie at Birmingham on their second consecutive road trip. The Birmingham-Southern Panthers, Coach Norton ' s Alma Mater, were pointing to the Centenary game and played a wonderful brand of ball against the Gents. r t ' M ttUSw ' Jfc«- III! 1 Hl|Wf p H ' N , i " H » . » » .-,,:.% t. ■ - H ' Page One hundred twenty -three,
