Mississippi, where he had gone to scout a foot- hall game, cast a pall of sadness over the College campus and the entire city, where he was known and loved for his friendly spirit, his cheerful smile, his fine character, and his courage. H. M. Knilans, coach of Byrd High School ' s cham- pionship teams, was appointed to assist Parker for the remainder of the football season. Knilans proved to he a valuable scout and an able assist- ant. To assist in coaching the varsity line, Coach Par- ker retained Fred Williams, the alert and aggres- sive center of the 1934-35 Centenary team. Wil- liams was rated as one of the smartest centers ever to represent Centenary on the gridiron and his work with the freshmen and varsity this year indicate that he may show equally as well in the coaching field, with a few years of experience. • » »-.

%■■ , .. Curtis Parker. Director of Athletics HL DIRE Director of Athletics, Curtis Parker, has completed his tenth year as a member of the coaching staff of Centenary College. He came to us direct from the University of Arkansas, where he starred in three sports. Parker was the second man to letter in three major sports at the University; the first being E. T. Renfro, who was serving as Parker ' s first assistant at the time of his death in September, 1935. Parker has served Centenary in many capacities, having been at one time coach of all freshmen sports, later assistant football coach and head coach of basketball, and finally in 1934 he was made Director of Athletics and head coach of football and basketball. He has not only shown himself to be a football coach of marked ability by developing outstanding teams from limited material, but has proved to be an equally great builder of cham- pionship basketball teams. In 1934 Parker added to his staff one of his Alma Mater ' s greatest all-round athletes, E. T. Renfro. Renfro served as assistant coach in football and basketball, and had a large part in developing winning teams in both sports in 1934-35. The coaching part- nership of these two great athletes, which had proved in one short year that it was a combination to be ranked among the nations greatest, was broken by the death of E. T. Renfro on September 19, 1935. The sudden death of Coach Renfro in Jackson, [ 74 ]

a- GENTS " Faced with the problem of instilling pep into the student body of Centenary, Stilwell Tiffin, Head Stilwell Tiffin Cheer Leader, with Frances Johnson, Edna Earle Head Cheer Leader Richardson and Howard Gates as his assistants, developed some new yells, revived some old ones and soon built up a fine cheering section for the early season football games. For the big games later in the season Tiffin and his assistants presented a repertoire of coordinated antics and seemingly spontaneous bursts of enthusiasm, which kept the students in an uproar of vocal support at every game, even though the going was rough for the Gentlemen on the field of play. Tiffin is due much credit for his good work on the cheering squad during the past two years, and particularly for his work this year.
