n 21 ■1 Buddy rips off tackle for 18 yards against Loyola. Ob Gents Win First Two Tilts of Season The Centenary College football team, under the new coaching administration of Curtis Parker and E. T. Renfro, opened the 1934 football campaign with two Louisiana victories, beating Louisiana College, 13-0, and Louisiana State Normal, 16-0. Commencing the season on foreign soil before a crowd of 6,000 spectators with Coach Curtis Parker using practically every athlete on the squad for the purpose of finding out a formality of astrong nu eus, the Gents edged out a 13-point victory over the Wild- cats of Pineville, La. The Maroon-clad Gentlemen tallied all their points in the first half. In the first quarter, after Captain Ray Parker had plunged through the Wildcats forward wall for considerable yardage to bring the ball to the seven-yard stripe. Bill Burch. who played great ball throughout the tilt, scored the initial touchdown. The second touchdown was made in the second quarter, when " Pug " ' Crowther tossed a beautiful 43-yard pass into the arms of Howard Hooper, who galloped the re- maining distance for the six points, crossing the goal line unmolested. Playing the second encounter before a home crowd of 5,000 fans, the Gents added the second victim to their list, defeating Louisiana Normal, 16-0. Partici- pating in the scoring were Ray Parker, Louis Mc- Corkle, and Chester Weidman. All the Maroon and White players played a fine brand of ball, with Coach Parker again making repeatable changes. These two victories prolonged the Centenary unde- feated record, since the close of the 1931 season, to 24 games. •WEBB CROWTHER TOWNSON 41 TSt WEIDMAN

. « CAPTAIN BUDDY PARKER ,1 C (fV i The 061118 ' Peerless Leader After his great achievements on the gridiron the past season, this sparkling athlete is undoubtedly the outstanding and most valuable player of the 1934 ag- gregation. Through Captain Raymond " Buddy " Parker ' s great feats, the success of the Maroon and White eleven was practically attributed. Certainly there is no challenge to this stellar back. For the first time in years Centenary elected a whole- season captain, and a more natural choice was never made, when this smiling ball-carrier was selected. Parker was always dependable, being the fellow whom the Gents relied upon, when the necessary yardage for a first down was needed. A back who has the qualities of stalwartness and stamia. The amiable skipper from Kemp, Texas, has never showed methods of elusiveness, but lie runs like a savage warrior of old Scandinavia. lie is one of the hardest, power-driving backs that Centenary has ever had. His form of line-plunging is one that is seldom seen in this section — a low, ' linging to the ground type, with his legs working like pistons combined with a terrific stiff-arm. Combined with his line-plunging abilities, " Buddy " has proved his worth as a blocker and defensive player. Prior to the past season ' s ball-toting, Parker was classed as one of the best interference runners in collegiate football today. He cleared the way for man y touch clowns in ' 32 and " 33, in which seasons Centenary was ranked as the twelfth best outfit in the country. As a line-backer, Parker was given the distinction as one of the South ' s best. Some of the remarkable feats exploited by Parker during the past season were nine touchdowns and a number of place kicks for points after touchdowns. In llie llendrix encounter he averaged nine yards per trial, piling up a total of 103 yards. In the Texas tilt he kicked a field goal to give the Gentlemen their margin of victory. In every game, with a few excep- tions, Buddy was credited with runs varying from 20 to 30 yards, being aided by a good forward wall of commendable skill and grit. By his creditable exploits for Centenary, Parker marked himself a truly great football warrior, one who is expected to carry on in the same fashion for the Detroit professional eleven next season.

A large crowd watched Curtis Parker ' s Gentlemen brush aside the Warriors ' defense f°r, their third vic- tory of the season and a slate clean of defeats.

Oklahoma Scores Lucky Win Over Centenary Although outplaying and outclassing their opposition in all stages of the game, the Centenary College Gen- tlemen fell victims to a lucky break, a blocked punt in the last ten minutes of the tilt, when the Ok ' ahoma University Sooners turned the break into a touchdown to hand the Maroon and White agcregation their first defeat in two years, halting the Gents record at 25 victories. The score was 7-0. The fighting Gentlemen checked every onslaught of the highly-touted Sooners to the extent that the 10.000 spectators loudly applauded their exploits on the grid- iron that afternoon in the Norman. Oklahoma, stadium. They held " Nig " Robinson, stellar back, and Cassius Gentry, all-conference tackle, at bay all afternoon. During stages of the game the Gents had three op- portunities to score, only to lose the ball on some un- fortunate break. They lost a total of 60 yards by penal- ties of delaying the game and the illegal use of the hand-. The Centenary team met defeat in this manner: With only ten minutes left to play, Jack Harris, lankv Sooner winuman. blocked a Centenary punt, the ball rolling to the five-yard line where Jeff Coker picked up the ball and dashed for a touchdown. ft was victory in defeat for the fighting Gentlemen.
