Squad and the Lettermen year men will make up in hustle for a lot they lack in experience and they will have their days. " The season closely followed this prophesy. The Gents won when they were not given a chance for victor, they lost games they were top favorites to win. One week they played like champions, and other weeks, of- fense and defense would bog down at critical moments and the ball game would slip from their grasp. 3. L. Huddleston, back 4.

Faced with the problem of replacing six regulars in the line, and two regulars in the backfield, Coaches Parker, Smith, and Cobb gave careful consideration to about forty candidates who came out for the team. Only eleven of these forty men were lettermen, six were squadmen, and twenty-six were sophomores coming up from the freshman team. Practice was held twice daily, and scrimmages were begun as soon as the condition of the boys would permit. In the process of selecting a starting line-up, the work- outs became tougher and tougher, until only the pure in heart, the boys who like rough contact could stand the grind. Before the opening game the list of condidates for the team dropped sharply. With the season at hand Coach Parker prophesied, " Our team this year will be like a rookie baseball pitcher. A rookie pitcher will go out one day and set a good batting order down for nine innings, and the next time he faces it, he may be sent to the showers in the first inning. One day he had what it takes. The other day he didn ' t. This year we have a rookie ball club that will make a lot of mistakes. If they make many of them in any one game they are bound to lose. Sometimes at a critical minute only one is enough to lose the game. But these first 1. Weenie Bynum, back. 10. Claude Smith, guard. 17. Joe Steeples, guard. 2. Dub Partin, tackle. 11.

Louisiana College Stubborn, Demons in Moral Victory After two weeks of twice daily workouts, the Gentlemen took a tough schedule right by the nose with two games the first week. Thursday, accompanied by a " special " train load of students, they traveled over a hundred miles into Central Louisiana to open the season with Louisiana College. Saturday, under a brilliant sun, a clear sky, on the rolling green of Centenary Stadium, and before their fellow students they opened the home schedule with Louisiana Normal. The Louisiana College Wildcats proved to be a stubborn foe. With the ball in their possession on their own forty- five line, they blocked beautifully for Vernon Payne, a fast stepping halfback, who broke away from the line of scrimmage, and outdistanced the Gentlemen to score first. Aroused by the Wildcat score, the Gents took possession of the ball and moved it into pay territory in steamroller fashion. Behind a power play that functioned with pre- cision, Birkleback plunged the ball over from the two yard line to tie the score. Soon after the kickoff, a long pass from Stone to Patterson netted the Gentlemen another score. Vernon Payne caught the Centenary kickoff on his own goal line and for the second time during the night stepped through the entire Centenary team. It was the first time a kickoff had been returned for a score against ' % -v " ' " I . ' Tuiney Vinson towers high above the opposition. a Parker coached eleven. The half ended soon afterwards with the score tied 12 to 12. In the second half, weight and reserve strength of the Gentlemen proved to be too much for the Wildcats. Scoring at will, the Gentlemen rolled up the final score 39 to 12. Opening day at home with the Normal De- mons proved to be sixty minutes of continued disappointments. The first time the Gentle- men were in possession of the ball, they marched it down the field, deep into Demon territory, only to lose it on downs. Friends in the stands thought nothing of this failure to score, but settled back in their seats to wait for the Gentlemen to start the march that would prove successful. But this first attempt was an example of the abundance of yard- age the Gents were to gain without a score. For four disappointing quarters their offense bogged down at critical moments. The sound of the final gun brought a blush of shame to faces of the highly touted Gentle- men. A tie score, to 0, and a moral victory for the Demons from Louisiana Normal. Huddleston wakes a punt return against Louisiana Normal. Aills is leading the way lor him. Stone runs into the arms of two S. M. U. tacklers alter making a nice gain.
