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

Townson skirts an A. M. end for a nice gain. played a bang-up game all afternoon, blocked a Texas punt on the 30-yard line, scooped up the ball and raced for a touchdown. Baker crossed the goal line un- molested. It was the Gents " stamina and fighting spirit that brought them victory. Standing out in the line were Stacks and C. Parker, who played excellent ball. Broddie Waller was a tower of strength in the line, after he had relieved Sid Binion, who was injured. This giant Waller performed with qualities of a veteran. 10.000 fans saw a classy gridiron machine of Cen- tenary give Texas its first defeat of the season. Centenary Defeats T. C. U. Displaying speed at a ratio of a fast tempo com- bined with some quick mental work, which resulted in two touchdowns, one on an intercepted pass and the other on a kick-off, enabled the Centenary College Gentlemen to trounce the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs, 13-0, and to score another victory in their football feud with Southwest Conference teams. It was Centenary ' s third consecutive win over South- west conference teams and its sixth out of seven tilts this season. Outplaying their heavier fceman all the way. the Gents broke into the scoring column when Rendall Webb, the " Spider " from Gibsland, La., intercepted a pass in the closing five minutes of the first quarter and sprinted 55 yards for a touchdown. A neat piece of work by Webb. Taking a backward pass from Ray Parker, who had received the third quarter kick-off. Bill Burch eluded the entire Fort Worth team, traveling 91 yards for the Gents ' final touchdown. A fine exhibition of quick brain work by Parker and Burch. In the backfield Parker, Burch. Townson, and Webb plaved exceptionally good ball, while Baker. Guillory, and Hohmann, who played the entire 60 minutes, gave p. good account of themselves. Darrell Lester, the Frogs ' All-American center, gave a wonderful exhibi- tion of snapping the ball and tackling. C. PARKER BEARD HORAK

r The Gents ' blocking was too much for T. C. U. Gents Wallop Baylor Bears, 7-0 Six thousand rabid fans, many of them Centenary alumni present for Home-coming Day, saw the passing combination of Neal Crowther to Howard Hooper enter the limelight again, to give the fighting Gentlemen a victory over an inspired and wonderfully improved Bay lor University football team. The score was 7-0. Opening up with an aggressive attack, the Gentlemen started things rolling and after three minutes of actual playing they had pushed over a touchdown. The score came on a 7-yard pass from Neal Crowther to Howard Hooper. After this touchdown the game materialized into a nip and tuck affair, with both teams ' line and backfield functioning in bright array. Three Centenary stalwart linesmen. Baker, Williams and C. Parker, were responsible for the stopping of the Baylor elusive ball-toters. The game was a splendid climax to the elaborate fes- tivities held for Home-coming Day. Maroon and White Beat Ole Miss Unleashing a magnificent aerial attack in the second quarter which was exploited for the first time this sea- son, the Centenary College Gentlemen conquered the University of Mississippi football team by a score of 13-6, before 5.000 spectators. The Gents surprised the husky Red and Blue Grid- ders with a splendid combination of forward-backward passes that terminated into a touchdown, when little " Pug " Crowther heaved a beautiful forward pass to Howard Hooper for the score. It was an excellent catch by the stellar sophomore wingman. On a well executed running attack in the third period the Gents tallied their final touchdown of the afternoon. Ray Parker, who was the spearhead of the drive, slashed off right tackle for the score. Sharing honors in halting the tricky but powerful Warner offense of the invaders were Crowther, who turned in a splendid exhibition of punting and passing; Conway Baker. Bill Burch. Sid Binion and Ray Parker, who gained 77 yards in 17 trials. Both elevens played a hard-fought and thrilling bat- tle with the Gentlemen having the edge. ROBINSON STACKS HAYGOOD
