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

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

Burch returning an A. M. punt. Maroon and White Defeat Loyola University Playing a fast, hard-hitting, resourceful game at the pulse-quickening tempo of its own 30-piece jazz band, the never-say-die Centenary College football team put the finishing touches to a great season in New Orleans with a brilliant victory over the rough and tough Loy- ola University Wolves by a score of 17 to 6. 7.000 spectators roared their approval of the Cents ' exploits, who wound up their season with ten wins and two defeats, establishing a four-year record of 35 vic- tories and two set-backs. Bill Burch, 186-pounder, with the speed of a deer, from Plainview, Texas, took individual honors. Burch was a thorn in the side of the Loyola players with his " on again, off again " pace. He handled the ball 20 times gaining 116 yards. Starring, along with Burch, was Captain " Buddy " Parker, who plowed the Wolves ' line for consistent gains. Parker scored the first touchdown on a line play. Hooper scored on a pass and Stokes swelled the score with a field goal to give the Gents their final win of the season. In the forward wall Baker, Binion, Hohmann and Williams played masterly ball. 1935 Centenarv Football Schedule A 11-game schedule that has possibilities of material- izing into the toughest array of skirmishes ever ar- ranged by football officials of Centenary College, will be tackled by the Maroon and White gridiron machine in 1935.
