, f FOOTBALL (Continued) Centenary, 6; Purdu e, 49 A grand and glorious beginning for the Centenary College Gents had a most tragic end for the Little Southerners when the husky Pur- due University Boilermakers struck back with the velocity of a tornado Smith and carried the Louisiana gridiron waters team to its greatest defeat in yearsj the score being 49-6. It was a complete ro ut for the Gents and their defeat came be- fore a crowd of 7,000. Outweighed and outplayed, the Gents never had a chance after the first two minutes of the game when they went to the front by a score of 6 to as the result of a recovery of a fumble by Pattison, a pass from Womack to Oslin for 20 yards, and a short gain by Oslin for the score. With their backs against the wall, the Boilermakers struck with a running and passing attack and before the quarter was over they were out in front by a score of 7-6. The Gents were unable to stop the powerful offensive of the Boilermakers and the Northerners pushed over a touchdown in the second and third quarters. In the fourth period they ran wild scoring four touchdowns, featuring long runs and passes. It was Sincitton STETSON UNIVERSITY Thompson

Allums FOOTBALL (Continued) Mustangs and the deathly heat of the Fair Park Stadium. The Mus- tangs were able to score in the first quarter before the Texans again broke out with scoring power, due to a fresh herd of Mustangs being sent into the game. Centenary, 0; Texas A. and M., 7 r B. Cameron A long pass, which was too high for the Gents ' secondary defense to touch, which was hurled by " Frenchy " Domingue, found the ar ms of one Charlie Malone, elongated Ag- gie Cadet, and produced the only score of a hard-fought battle between the Gents and the Texans. This game was featured by the star work of Domingue and Graves, reserve Aggie backs. Domingue tore off several long gains and Graves ' unerring punts kept the Gents backed to their goal line the whole game. For the Gents, Blanchard Johnson showed the fans some of the best line-backing ever seen at the local school. Approximately 2,000 Texas A. M. Cadets were here from College Station to help swell the attendance to a 10,000 mark for the State Fair Game. It was one of the larg- est crowds ever to witness a local contest and certainly the most colorful. Oliphant BAYLOR UNIVERSITY Taylor

FOOTBALL (Continued) the worst defeat ever administered to the Gents since they started playing major football. Centenary, 19; Union, If Young Osi.in With one eye on the Texas University Longhorns, who were the Gents ' next opponents, the Gents kept the other eye on Union University and were able to defeat the Bulldogs with no great amount of trouble. The Bulldogs threatened only once when, on a fake spinner, a Union back ran to the Gents ' six-yard line before he was downed. The Gents carried the ball to the Union goal line several times, but were unable to push over but three markers during the afternoon ' s work. Centenary, 0; Texas U., 6 Fighting as an under dog sometimes will, their forwards displaying more strength than they had displayed all season, once turning back the opposition on the one-yard line. Cam- eron gave a great exhibition of kicking and the ball carriers were dangerous at all times. The Centenary College Gents crowned themselves with glory even in defeat against the University of Texas Longhorns. Fully 8,000 fans saw the Maroon and White warriors wage a brilliant battle to hold the powerful Texas club to a 6-0 score, the winning margin being a 30-yard pass from Koy to Price for a touchdown in the second quarter.
