BAKER S. M. U. Marching on toward another undefeated season, the Gents again came through with a 7-0 victory over the S. M. U. Mus- tangs. Most of the game the teams seemed fairly well matched, but the superiority of Smith, Oslin, and Geisler constantly stood out. Oslin ' s nineteen-yard sprint was the only tally of the game. S. M. U. presented a strong aeria l attack, as expected, with Fuqua, local boy, on the receiv- ing end of most passes. The defensive work of Stacks and Weidman in breaking up passes was outstanding. Wilson, S. M. U. back, raced seventy yards for a touchdown early in the game, but was called back due to a penalty, which relieved the Gents followers very much. A special feature of the game was the constant battle between two great ends, Fuqua and Geisler. MISSISSIPPI A beautifully executed forward pass, well over the head of a defen- sive Centenary half, spelled doom to the truly great record of an un- crossed goal line in thirteen pigskin contests, when the Gents defeated the " Mudcats " of Mississippi by the slim margin of 7-6, played on alien territory in Jackson, Mississippi. Ole Miss ' s score came in the beginning of the second quarter, a six- point lead that assumed mountainous proportions as the whistle blew for the half. Coming back in the second period, a different and inspired Centenary " Gentlemen " met the spinning intricacies of the Ole Miss War- ner system. Displaying an extra drive and punch, the Gents launched a determined drive for the Mississippi goal line. With Smith, Oslin and Geisler, the mainstays of the Centenary offense, the Gents brought the ball from the 50-yard line to the Ole Miss 8-yard line. From here, an exchange behind the line, from Smith to Oslin, provided the necessary punch for a touchdown. From the accurate toe of Manning Smith came the extra point that won the ball game, 7-6.

u w u u (I u u W II « u II II « MORGAN | " Smitty " shows the boys from A. and M. how it ' s done — in preparation for his duties there next Fall on the coaching staff. T. C. U. Although decisively outplaying their Texas opponents, the Gents were unable to put forth the extra punch for a score when, for the third consec- utive time in three weeks, they played to a scoreless deadlock against the T. C. U. Frogs in the Fair Grounds stadium. Again, as in the Texas U. game, the Gents had a touchdown play called back, due to a penalty. Os- 1 i n, in the first quarter, got loose off-tackle and raced sixty-five yards to cross the Frog goal line and score the only touchdown of the game, which was ruled no-good due to holding. All throughout the game, the Gents demonstrated a superior brand of football, most of the game being played in the Frogs ' territory. Smith, Centenary ' s great field-general, dominated the Gents ' offensive, exhibiting a versatility of skill rarely found in one man. The scoreless tie again presenting itself in the Gents ' camp was reason enough for the appropriate dedication, " You ' re getiin ' to be a habit with me. " TEXAS A. M. Displaying a brilliant and much improved offensive as well as a stub- born defense, the Gents ran up the astounding score of 20-0 over the Texas Farmer. Oslin again proved to be the individual star as he raced 74 yards through the entire A. M. team, at one time and forty yards another to score touchdowns. Geisler scored the other touchdown, being on the receiving end of an almost impossible pass from Smith. It was just an- other case of too much of " The Three Musketeers, " Oslin, Smith and Geisler. The Aggies offered a scoring threat several times, but were soon stopped by the strong Gent defense. UNION With the first string eleven being retired to the se- curity of the bench after the first quarter, the Cen- tenary reserves romped to an easy 47-0 victory over Union University Bulldogs from Jackson, Tennessee. The game was featured by a brilliant 77-yard jaunt by Orville Justus, a speedy reserve half, coming into the game for Oslin. Glumac and Sellers also showed up well, bearing the brunt of the Centenary offense during the latter part of the game. At no time were the Gents in serious danger, presenting a stubborn forward wall defense and a smoothly clicking offense. SELLERS 82 WILLIAMS

It was one of the greatest exhibitions of courage ever produced by the Gents. Carrying on without Smith and Oslin, who were forced out early in the game with injuries, they continued to win praise and honors. Glumac and Geisler ' s great playing stood out for the Gents. Oslin returned later in the game to score again, running through the entire " Wolf " line. The Wolves displayed the greatest offensive team sent against the Maroon and Winter ' s during the season. Their line, as well as their backfield, was heavy and fast. THE DIXIE CLASSIC — ARKANSAS Climaxing their brilliant season with a 7-7 tie with the University of Arkansas, unofficial champions of the Southwestern Conference, the Gents finished their season for the second consecutive year undefeated. Playing most of the battle without the service of their brilliant quarter- back, Smith, the Gents fought a stubborn battle throughout the game. Arkansas scored in the second quarter on a 27-yard pass, Murphy to Geiser, who stepped the remaining five yards to be one of the few who had crossed the Maroon and White goal line in twenty-one games. The Gents soon came back to even the score. A 37-yard run by Oslin placed the ball well past mid- field. From here, the Gents ' diminutive speed-demon again came through, taking a pass from Smith on Arkansas ' 5-yard line and galloping across for a score. Geisler proved to be an all-American, with his great defensive work, as well as with his powerful offensive drive. He was shifted to the backfield several times, and once got away for a 29-yard gain. In the line, the work of Wilson, Baker, Binion, and Waters was outstanding. ' V : . BINION 84 i 1
