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.

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.

Goldbugs Overwhelmed Mustangs Beaten Oklahoma City University was the victim of the Gents vicious rebound following the Nor- mal disappointment. With the Maroon and White line on the rampage, the Goldbugs were never given a chance. The Centenary line, with only one returning first-stringer, pushed the Oklahoma City ball carriers back for losses amounting to forty-three yards, and al- lowed only eleven yards to be gained by the Goldbugs running attack all afternoon. Two linemen scored touchdowns for the Gents. Bud Warren picked two long passes out of the air from backfield aides to score twice. An all- Oklahoma combination on the Centenary team, Bynum, back, to Looney, end, to Bradley, guard, ended in the diminitive guard galloping over the last stripe. With Huddleston and Whitehurst playing great ball in the backfield, the Gentlemen turned on a successful aerial and running attack to roll up the final score, 38 to 0. In Dallas for a conflict with the Southern Meth- odist Mustangs in the Cotton Bowl, the Gentle- men continued to show all who would take no- tice that Centenary had a football team. From the opening whistle they outclassed their fav- ored opponents. After starting several touch- down drives that failed to reach pay dirt the Gentlemen scored on a seventy-five yard drive down the field. This drive was led by the sophomore sensation, Weenie Bynum, who left Dallas fans and sports writers singing his praises. " Grandma " Stone showed plenty of drive when at the two-yard line Coach Parker sent him in for the shifty Bynum. He bucked the line for the score. John Clark made his letter by booting the ball squarely between the uprights. Aills, back. Birkleback, back. Buigess, tackle. Clark, back. ..., f Beasley, quarter. Bradley, guard. Bynum, back. Huddleston, quarter. In the fading minutes of the game, the Mustangs almost made a draw out of the contest. They scored on a touchdown pass from Morrison to Couch, but Couch failed to add the extra point, and John Clark ' s extra point kick proved to be the margin of a 7-6 victory. A special train, jammed with Centenary supporters, went to Dallas for the game. Happy and jubilent over the victory, the merry-makers overran the Pan-Ameri- can exposition, boarding the train in the wee hours of the morning for the return trip home. A Baylor thrust at the line is stopped.
