One, (wo, three — punt! . Here, here! Only pile on the op- ponents! . . . Coeds watch grid- iron passions. Foot. Odll One of the most unexplainable things of our present-day mad world is football. What is it which makes boys go onto a gridiron with white faces and stream- ing eyes to fight for the game? What is it which grips a thousand hearts and sends them singing " Alma Mater? " What is it that makes people forget every- thing for the moment in the thrill of lust, enjoymerit at a tough scirmish? No one word nor one book can answer that question. All that we know is that it is that about which the college of today is built, the unity which makes pos- sible educational institutions all over the world — College Spirit. The crowd roars . . . Line play — • where the going ' s rough . . . Ex-Gent Manning Smith broods as the Aggies backslide . . . The Baylor bear sits down - - The Bears were set down . . . " Lemme get in there, coach! " . . . Whoop it up: Noisy.

The Gentlemen close in on an Aggie . . . Lei it rain! The game must go on. So This Is The proverbial visitor from Mars would get a strange impression of our world if he happened to land at a football game. He would probably first hold his whirling head, glance at the fighting players, hear the screams of the crowd, then hold his head again. For a moment he would shrink trembling against the nearest post and then suddenly, like a blush, a feeling of mad enthusiasm would flow through him and, ignorant of the purposes and ideas of the game, he would find himself swept away with mass energy and cheer with the strangers. Hoo( loads the bus at Tylei . . . " Grandma " Stone takes oil . . . Heads! . . . " Hey, ma! Here comes the parade " . . . Come on, Gents . . . Texas Aggies; final score 3-0. Guess who won!

The Centenary Gentlemen ushered in the football sea- son in gleeful fashion by stomping the Louisiana Col- lege Wildcats with a 21-0 victory. Scorer of the sea- son ' s first touchdown was curley-locked Charlie Drew Thomas when he dashed over the wildcat ' s goal-line with a smirk. Next in line was W. H. Stone when he also scored after a nice 36 yard run behind splendid interference. Al Beasley made the final addition as he touched the white line with a 25 yard jaunt. After having very decisively put the Louisiana College boys under, the Gents proceeded to repeat on. the Demons of Louis- iana State Normal to the tune of 20-0. The Centenary team filled the air with footballs to complete nine passes for a total of 199 yards and three touchdowns. Stone was on the tossing end to push the ball through the atmosphere to Hooper, Hoh- mann, Huddleston, Lingo, and Harris.
