The Varsity, 1933 Joe Guillory Preyer Gibbons Dewey Brown « 7 fT Tom Wilson GENTS TAKE ONE-SIDED CONTEST FROM SOUTHEASTERN TEACHERS A Yankee doodle dandy from ' way up Pennsylvania way. named Louie Glumae, with a forward passing- arm as true as a rifle, and the drive of an army mule, came from under the blankets provided for Centenary grid reserves to furnish thrills for about 4,500 pig- skin followers in a one-sided battle at Centenary stadium that found the Gentlemen scoring a 44 to victory over the Southeastern Teachers of Oklahoma. The Gents scored seven touchdowns in all, and three of them were aided directly by the perfect passing of Glumae. Eddie Town- sen scored one on a 12-yard " run after a 25-yard heave, and a 17- yard pass to R. Parker, followed by an 11-yard pass to Sellers paved the way for the final touchdown of the afternoon. — JOE R. CARTER, " Shreveport Times. " TIGERS OUTPLAYED BY GENTS A tiny gridiron spark that has been smouldering in the hearts of successive Centenary College football players for about ten years, burst into a roaring flame at Centenary stadium Saturday afternoon and claimed as its prey the Louisiana State University Tigers, the victim it has stalked for lo these many moons. The Tigers went down to a 6 to defeat, as 15,000 sets of eyes looked on from the high enclosure and marveled at the fight, de- termination and expert workmanship of the local gridsters. The first quarter of the game was partly a punting duel be- tween Yates of the Tigers and Smith of Centenary, featured by quick kicks on second downs by the Tigers and the period ended with Yates ripping the Gents ' line. Second period opened with the Gents making a great defense on their 10-yard line and Bowman making a costly fumble that spoiled the Tigers ' long drive. Shorty Oslin gave a demonstration of his speed in returning punts and wide end-sweeps. The quarter closed with Paul Geisler making a tackle that threw Bowman for a 15- yard loss. Third period found the Gents putting over their score. Eddie Townsen gave the fans a thrill by running back a kick-off 20 yards. The Gents lost the ball when Smith punted to the Tigers ' 5-yard line. Yates gave a nice exhibition of running, with three good gains around ends, but was finally stopped with a 5-yard loss. After tak- ing a punt on their own 40-yard line, Centenary marched down to a score, with Murff making the counter, on a line play. The Tigers ' famous passing combination, Yates to Lobdell started working after a pass, Lobdell to Sullivan, failed. The Gents ' defense functioned and Centenary took the ball on its 15-yard line when Oslin batted down a pass for the fourth down. Aided by a 15-yard penalty and a nice pass from Smith to Geis- ler, who plowed 17 yards for a 27-yard gain, the Gents moved down to the 10-yard line, where a field goal was tried by Murff and missed. Torrance punted out of danger. After two nice gains by Oslin and Murff, and a punt by L. S. U., the game ended with the ball in Centenary ' s possession on the Tiger ' s 25-yard line. — JOE R. CARTER, " Shreveport Times. " Captain Biff Jones, Head Coach of the Tigers, told Coach Nor- ton that the thing that impressed him most was the excellent block- ing of the Gents. • PAGE 92 •

The Varsity, 1933 Louis Glumac Marse Harper Richard Young Ralph Murff BOUQUET Ray Morrison ' s Southern Methodist University Mustangs played their third nocturnal e ngagement of the season and sustained an IS to 7 drubbing at the hands ol the best Centenary team in years if not the finest squad in the annals of the Shreveport school. Led by Ralph Murff. the Gents played a sound all-around game and roundly outclassed the locals at the Fair Park bowl. — DALLAS NEWS. THANKS MR. MOORE In conversation with Homer Norton after Saturday night ' s Cen- tenary-S. M. U. game, Bernie Moore, Louisiana State scout who covered the game for old Lou, paid this tribute to Paul Geisler, Centenary wingman: " He ' s the greatest end I have seen since Jerry Dalrymple. " — SHREVEPORT JOURNAL. NOTES FROM HOUSTON The designation by the " Houston Chronicle " of Centenary as a team " fast becoming the best non-Conference team in the Con- ference " exemplifies the friendly relationship that exists between Centenary and the Southwestern Conference. The astonishing success Centenary has had this season against teams of the Conference is well expressed by the " Chronicle " with the assertion that the Gents are having a whale of a time knock- ing off the Southwestern brethren with potshots from out of the league. WRITER PRAISES NORTON When a coach is able to take a handful of football players and whip the teams of schools whose enrollment exceeds that of Cen- tenary five and six times, he truly has something on the ball. —OTIS HARRIS, " Shreveport Journal. " GENTS DEFEAT AGGIES, 7-0 Throwing off a yoke of depression that hung over them through two quarters, mainly as the result of five bitter victories they had turned in since September 24 against worthy foes, the Centenary Gentlemen soared to lofty heights on both the offense and defense, to beat the Texas Aggies in one of their bitterly fought contests for which the teams have been noted since they first met in combat on the gridiron back in 1928 at College Station. Smith, in the role of the triple-threat artist, stole the spotlight as he passed, punted and carried the ball past the visitors ' defense line. He began plowing through the enemy defense with great con- sistency in the third quarter as his mates parted the way like a sharp knife cutting through cake. Ralph Murff. who was the " marked man " in the Gents ' lineup, played the part of the decoy in the Centenary attack and drew much fire from the enemy tackles. — JOE R.

The Varsity, 1933 Melford Allums WORDY GARLANDS FOR THE GENTLEMEN " A crowd that taxed all available seating space watched the Maroon-clad Gentlemen of little Centenary out-play and out-think Louisiana State ' s varsity club. " And furthermore: " The Centenary plays on their touchdown drive were executed to perfection if plays ever were, and the Gents quarter, Manning ' Smith, a Shreveport boy, should be rated among the outstanding signal callers in this section of the country. " Plaintiff further deposes: " A story of the Centenary game is not complete without men- tion of Paul Geisler. This Geisler is a Zimmerman, Dalrymple and Carideo all in one, and if evei a junior deserves all-American men- tion, the big Centenary end deserves it. Geisler is fast, ruthless and a great football player. " BATON ROUGE ADVOCATE. S. U.. they beat a good team; one that year and with man power behind it. " —NEW ORLEANS STATES. " They stopped L. S. U. ' s offense when the Tigers threatened to score. And they accomplished something no team had succeeded in doing all season — scoring through the Tigers ' line. " — NEW ORLEANS ITEM. The " Dallas Journal " believes the football moguls will muff one unless they match Centenary with some outstanding team in a post- season game. " When the Gents beat I has been well coached thi BIFF JONES RATES GEISLER Speaking with Fred Digby of the " New Orleans Item-Tribune, " Jones sang the praise of Geisler thus. " The best end I have seen all season, on any team in or out of the Southern Conference, is Paul Geisler of Centenary. He is as fast as a streak, weighs about 190, is smart and can take it. They tell me he is just like Dalrymple, only bigger. " GENTS MISS SCORE BY SIX INCHES; HELD TO TIE BY ARKANSAS A year-long dream of a perfect football season for the Cen- tenary Gentlemen vanished into the chill of a bleak November afternoon when the University of Arkansas Razorbacks held the Gents to a scoreless tie. Six inches, no more, perhaps less, separated the Gentlemen from the touchdown that would have climaxed a matchless season with a ninth-straight victory. But a bristling Razorback machine, inspired for the moment and suddenly surcharged with power beyond limits it was expected to reach, reared a barrier between Centenary and the backstripe of the Ozarks ' Red Shirts after Centenary, with Manning Smith sup- plying the impetus, had driven down field from its own 25-yard line to within measured inches of the Porker goal. A determined drive by Arkansas was halted at the Centenary 3-yard line by the time-keeper ' s gun, ending the first half, after the Gents had held for three downs. ♦ Coulter Mathews Robert Parker Tom Smith V ) ' I ' I • PAGE 93 •
