SPEIGHTS Guard WELSH Full Back HILTON Tackle The grid iron was so wet that the Gents frequently lost their footing and their heavy opponents were bearing down on them before they could execute their plays. Little Cracker Brown threw himself into the gap made in the Gents backfield by the absence of the T N T of the squad, Jake Hanna, who watched the entire game from the sidelines, and raced a game Louisiana Tech Bulldog into submission at the Louisiana State Fair Grounds Stadium to give Centenary its sixth consecutive vic- tory over the Collegians from Ruston. The Bulldogs delivered the fight that is always expected of them but the greatest part of their punch was necessarily on the defense as the Gentlemen kept the ball in the Tech zone most of the afternoon. The final score was 13-0 in favor of the Gents. Jake Hanna, the hard charging ace of the Gents ' backfield, and who was on the receiving end of several pertinent jibes last fall when he quit a sick bed to per- form for the maroon and white and failed to live up to his old reputation — with one play swooped the Wolves of Loyola into deieat when he carried the ball 53 yards for a touchdown the first time the ball became his charge. After this scoring dash the Gentlemen fell back on straight defensive football, playing a safe and conservative game on the muddy field of the Crescent City. This gave the Gentlemen an opportunity to display their remarkable front wall. Capt. Fred Willis showed the spirit that has won him fame when he asked that his team-mate. Jake Hanna, should be made Captain of the team for the last game of their careers. Coach Norton suggested that Willis captain the first half and Hanna the last half. This suggestion was carried out and both of the Captains per- formed in such a manner as to make their names go down in the history of Gen- tlemen football stars. Others to star in the game were: Younger. Crowley. Speights and Biedenharn. The prospects for the next season show the tendency on the part of Centenary to ever increase its name by greater obstacles to be overcome. Games have been arranged with Texas U., Texas A. M., Baylor U.. and Arkansas. There is a pos- sibility of a game with S. M. U. The team will greatly miss the power of those heroes of the maroon and white who are passing on beycmd collegiate football hut we predict a brilliant sea- son for the Gents led by Captains Brown and Biedenharn.

t sr ' ' • YOUNGER Center MITCHELL Half Back FINCH Half Back SCANLON Back- yards. Another of the several exciting moments was when Earl Nolan got loose for a 30 yard run to carry the ball out of the clanger zone and into mid-field. The game was a generally slow one due to the condition of the field after several hard rains backed by very little sunshine. The Gentlemen of Centenary were added to the list of Home Coming Day grid victims of the University of Arkansas but not until the heavy porkers had been given a severe test in the mud. The Gentlemen repeatedly ripped the ton line of the Razorbacks for small gains and only the alertness of the home team saved them from being scored on by way oi ' the air route several times. Centenary continued to fight until the last gun had been fired and it was their never dying spirit that delivered them the two point tally which they brought home as a trophy. Fred Hilton, a substitute for Capt. Willis, bore through the line in the last few minutes of play to block the kick of Uptmoor, thus scoring the two points for Centenary. Page One Hundred Ten
