The Varsity, 1933 Theo Taylor PLAYING OF MURFF AND OLIPHANT PLEASE BALTIMORE FANS Ralph Murft, stellar Centenary halfback, and Joe Ollphant, a fellow student who played a great game at right tackle, were in- strumental in the defeat of the North team here today, when the South won, 7 to 6. One of the unique features of the game was the fact that it was the first time that Oliphant or Murff had ever seen a snow- stoi m. Murff played a great game. His accurate passing and general play throughout the game proved that he is one of the outstanding stars in Southern football. He also distinguished himself as the greatest safety man in today ' s game.

LEMONS AND PEACHES " From an unsung place in Southern football (save in Shreve- port), Centenary has risen as one of the season ' s giants in this sec- tion. The Gentlemen, with a hard-hitting, shifty backfield and an alert line, have bowled over Texas University, Southern Methodist and Texas Aggies in the Southwest Conference. " From what looked to be a lemon Centenary has blossomed out into a peach, and if Biff Jones can hook- this Shreveport aggrega- tion by a substantial margin, his bed of roses certainly won ' t he thorny among North Louisiana fans. Centenary is a peach worth picking, but may give the Tigers an awful tummyache before the day is over Nov. 12. " — W. I. SPENCER, " Baton Rouge Advocate. " ASSOCIATED PRESS COMMENTS BY ROBERT BUNNELLE The smart, fast little team from Centenary offers some of tie outstanding players of the Southwest. Coach Biff Jones of I..
