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.

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

JlMMIE SERRA Jack Frizzell Orval Justus Henry Johnson Bob Decker David Mitchell Preston Thompson Sam Pernici Willie Mozach Spectators that measure into millions, radio broad- casts, and praising newspaper stories are not the mo- mentous parts of the intercollegiate game of football. What is this fascination t hat football has for the people? Not the winning or losing not the mere physical contact not just the thrills. These are the features of very sport. But CHARACTER! There ' s the secret! For of valor and loyalty and patience is the great game of football made up. These virtues stand revealed in the players themselves in the coaches in the officials. And, above all things, these virtues are bestowed upon the faces of the reserves the lowly scrubs. They serve as dummies for the regulars to slaughter. Battered and bruised, yet ever smiling, they accept the path that is not filled with glory. When the gridiron season has been ter minated, alway? keep in mind the teams that conquered every game, have achieved because they had a fighting crew of substitutes. Let the stellar players be lauded by the public, but give considerable credit for the victories to the reserves who have played well on the practice field and developed manhood. The Centenary College football reserves have achieved the aforesaid virtues and they are to be given credit for the Gents ' 1934 successful football season.
