The game was featured by the fighting of both lines. Herman Stacks, ace wingman, played a whale of a game, as did Walter Hohmann, and Fred Williams. Eddie Townson, who sprinted off for some nice gains, and Bill Burch, who halted the Farmers ' onslaught on various occasions by intercepting their passes, played commendable ball also. Gents Score Stirring Football Upset by Rocking Texas Centenary defeated Texas by a score of 9-6.

Crowther is brought down by Ouachita after a long ' gain. Gents Win Eighth Game of A little football aggregation from Ouachita College, scheduled only as a " breather " for the purpose of breaking up a series of major games, gave the Cen- tenary College football team a great battle superior to many college elevens, to be finally nosed out, 8-0. li was the Gents ' eighth victory of the season. With Coach Curtis Parker using mostly second string players, the Tigers were anything but a set-up. They had nothing to lose but would have gained consider- able publicity if they had won. Eddie Townson, a fleet-footed back from Glenmora, Season; Beat Ouachita Tigers La., who is considered as the hardest man to tackle on any team, came into the picture in the second quarter to make three first downs in a row. making a total gain of 70 yards. This excellent work by Townson brought the ball to the two-yard stripe, where Captain Ray Parker plunged through center for the touchdown. Fred Williams, who played extraordinary football against the Tigers, blocked a punt in the third period which rolled out of bounds in the end zone, auto- matically giving Centenary a safety. Centenary Beaten by Tulsa With their running attack failing to click and giving a poor performance for the first time in years, the Centenary College football team ' s second invasion to the state of Oklahoma resulted in their second loss of the season, when the Tulsa University Golden Hurri- canes gave them a 14-8 drubbing. It was a bad day for Centenary, falling victims to their own errors, a blocked punt and a fumble behind the goal line. Tack Dennis, a stellar halfback, and Lester Chapman, giant tackle, were the heroes for the Tulsa team. Dennis scored the Hurricanes ' first touchdown and added the two extra points alter the touchdowns. Chapman, who performed brilliantly on the offense and defense, blocked the fatal punt and also recovered the fumble for a touchdown. Playing a good game for Centenary were Ray Parker, Baker, Hooper and C. Parker. The only Centenary touchdown was made by Captain Parker. " Crock " ' Parker, who is a brother of the Gents ' versatile cap- itan, played an excellent game on the defense. WALLER McCORKLE
