Coaches Smith, Parker and Cobb set out to rebuild the Maroon and White eleven. Spring Training Q i SANDWICHED m between the boxing season and baseball season, spring training for football received its share of attention by forty-eight hope- ful candidates, in preparation for a winning team next year. Drills were held late in the afternoon when every one had finished their work, and lasted until it was too dark to see clearly what was happening. Sophomores were groomed by the coaches to replace t he ten Gents graduating from the squad, and a number of high school seniors from neighboring states were given a " looking over " by the " powers that be, " with an eye toward a new crop of Freshmen pig-skin punters. While sensational plays of the past gridiron season were recalled to the minds of those who had seen active service in the fall, additional new formations were tried out and approved by both the coaches and the boys. Lettermen brushed up on their punting and passing and former Freshies, now elevated to the position of potential varsity men, did their best to show how quickly they could overcome the disadvantages of youth and lack of experience.

Purdue University came down from the frozen North and reveUing in our wintry weather which had the Southerners shivering in their dugout, defeated Centenary in a double-header by scores of 6-4 and 8-2. Confronted with their perrenial rivals, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, the Gents again bit the dust in two close games, 9-6 and 5-3. Good pitching and few errors accounted for Stephen F. Austin being the first victims of the Maroon and White, but in the next game with the same opponents, the Gents were again all thumbs and booted the boys from Nacadoches into the winning column, 13-3. The last games of the season were again played with La. Tech. In the first, jittery nerves handed the ball game to the wearers of the Blue and Red 8-2, but Stone and the Gents came back magnificently to end the season with a Centenary victory, 9-2.

Among the Sophs whose performances measured quite favorably with the Centenary standard of football were, Samolitis, end; Partin, tackle; May, cen- ter; Whitehurst, fullback; and Bynum, tailback. In a check upon the abilities of the varsity members of the team, all showed themselves to be in good form, both mentally and physically; with Stone, punting, passing, and running better than he ever has in his entire career as a gridiron star at Centenary. Next season should find Stone one of the hardest running backs in the South. Understudy to him is Beasley, who during the Spring Training Season was also coached for the quarterback position, along with Huddleston, Ails, and Neumeyer. Other places on the squad were given careful attention, and although only a month of practice took place, much was accomplished toward shaping a winning team in football for Centenary next year.
