The Varsity, 1933 Paul Geisler Harold Oslin Manning Smith 0k Ben Cameron s s • 1 • " «m : ' ,. ' I ' I ' I ' I CENTENARY OPENS SEASON WITH HENDERSON TEACHERS Centenary College ' s new football stadium, with its seating ca- pacity of 10,000. that brought the Maroon and White back to it? own grounds for home games after several years, proved good luck for the Gentlemen grid warriors when it was used for the first time in a regulation battle to usher in the 1932 pig-skin season here. With attendance of about 5,000. all roaring their approval, the Gents rode home to victory over the Henderson State Teachers of Arkadtlphia in about as smooth a game as ever marked the open- ing of a college gridiron campaign here. The Gents had little trouble in turning in t heir victory. Except for a few minutes in the opening quarter, when play was confined between their 20-yard line and midfield, and when a couple of en- emy punts drove them back closer to their own goal line. Cen- tenary was always master of the situation. Scoring once in the opening quarter, three times in the second, and twice in the final chapter, they totaled 41 points, while the visitors were forced to return to their Arkansas home without a tally. — JOE R. CARTER, " Shreveport Times. " GENTS BEAT TEXAS LONGHORNS IN LAST FIVE MINUTES Outplaying their heavier foemen all the way, the Centenary Col- lege Gentlemen defeated the University of Texas Longhorns, 13 to 6. Five minutes before the final gun sounded the Gentlemen started the final drive which was to bring them victory. Harold Oslin. an outstanding back of the day. faked an end run cut back and ran 19 yards to put the pigskin one yard from the goal. Then Ralph Murff, another star Centenary backfield man, carried the ball over on his fourth trial, going through left guard. It was the fleet Gentlemen backfield, a set of " horsemen " if ever there was such, who beat the Southwest Conference team. Eddie Townsen, Manning Smith, Murff and Oslin spun around ends, danced through the line and tossed aerials as few backs have ever done on Memorial Stadium field. They had marvelous support from Ames, Oliphant, Morgan and Geisler in the forward wall. — JOE R. CARTER. " Shreveport Times. " AUSTIN TRIBUTE The Longhorns were not disgraced In defeat. They played a heads-up brand of football throughout the four periods, but lost simply because they were facing a fighting, inspired eleven, en- dowed with a. trio of the flashiest backs seen on a Centenary team in recent years, who were not to be denied. And not only did the Centenary backs cover themselves with glory, but their line made a stand which will go down in Centenary football history among its greatest. Actually outplaying the Long- horns ' forward wall, the Gents ' linemen tore gaping holes in the forward wall for their phantom-like backs to filter through. Eddie Townsen, 140 pounds; Manning Smith. Oslin and Murff were the propelling force of Centenary ' s marvelous victory, and their exploits Saturday will place them among the top ranks of Southwest gridiron heroes. By A. S. (HOP) HOPKINS, " Austin Statesman. " • PAGE 88 •

The Varsity, 1933 John Blakemore Eddie Townsen Rob Waters Perry Ames KIND WORDS Writing in the " Houston Post-Dispatch, " Lloyd Gregory described a conversation he had with Marty Karow, Texas University back- field coach. " We asked Karow about Centenary ' s win over Texas, " Gregory writes. " Our players were too chesty when they w nt into the game, " Karow explained. " But don ' t let anybody tell you Homer Norton of Centenary doesn ' t have a good team. His backfield is as fast as any in the Southwest Conference, and his line is strong. " MAROON AND WHITE DEFEAT LOUISIANA NORMAL DEMONS Climaxing a beautiful afternoon ' s ceremony that took in the dedication of their new playing field, and the christening of their football plant as the Centenary Stadium Centenary College Gentle- men, as per expectation, handed their friendly rivals, the Louisiana State Normal Demons, a neat 41 to 7 trimming " . The Maroon and White color bearers of Centenary accepted a challenge from the Demons for an aerial battle in taking their vic- tory. The Demons chose to make it a forward passing duel on the very first play of the game after Seward had returned the kick-off from his 17-yard line to the 36-yard line. The Gents also went to the bombing and the battle throughout was featured by overhead plays. — JOE R. CARTER. " Shreveport Times. " GENTLEMEN GIVEN SCARE BY OLE MISS WIN BY 13-6 SCORE. If Centenary did not meet the best team in Mississippi, Norton would hate to meet a better one in a dark alley. A mellowed blend of football methods as ancient as they make them and as modern as tomorrow; one that embraced the old statue of liberty play that was in use when football players wore leather- coated mattresses on their shoulders, and more modern, double, triple, lateral and forward passes in bewildering array, gave the Gents many unhappy moments. Lucky it was for Centenary that Eddie Townsen got into the game when he did; luckier still that " Touchdown " Eddie flowered a 17-yard run that drew him across the Ole Miss back-stripe in the second quarter to break a 6-6 tie that had endured almost too long for the comfort and peace of mind of 5,000 sp?ctators who grew hot and cold by turns. — JOE R. CARTER, " Shreveport Times. " PLUNGE BY MURFF DEFEATS TIGERS Ralph Murff accomplished two things when lie plunged across the line in the third quarter of Saturday ' s game to give Centenary a 6-0 victory over the Tigers. He won the game and he became the first player of the season to score through the Louisiana line. —SHREVEPORT JOURNAL. w y • PAGE 89 •
