Baylor Conquers, Arizona Subdued With the disappointment of the first home game forgotten, and with hopes of an undefeated season the Gentlemen went into the Baylor game. Students and fans, with their confidence restored in the team by their success on the road, crowded Centenary Stadium to see the Gents play their second Southwest Conference team. The Bay- lor Bears, riding the crest of a victory over their confer- ence champions, were not to be stopped by the ambitious Gentlemen. " Bullet " Bill Patterson, showing passing class that has made the Southwest famous, threw nine passes to com- plete seven of them. Before the half, three of them had gone for touchdowns and Baylor led by the final score, 20 to 0. Patterson was removed to the sidelines and the teams battled evenly for the remainder of the game. Once in the second half the Gents moved down to the Bruin eight-yard line, but faltered there. In a breath-taking game that developed into a scoring duel in the early minutes of play and ended with victory almost in the grasp of the losers, the G entlemen returned to winning ways with a victory over the Arizona Univer- sity Wildcats. The game was played in Tuscon, Arizona, before the largest crowd to ever witness a game there. Wfflmmms Gents and admirers off for California. Both teams scored soon after the opening gun. The Wildcats started it when Parker made a beautiful catch of a long forward pass from Smilinich, and raced with it for a touchdown. The Gentlemen chose to receive the kick-off and pulled one out of the bag when Stone returned the ball forty yards, and then tossed it to Rawlinson, who out- distanced the opposition to even up the score. The Gents took the lead when they com- pleted a drive down the field with a com- pleted pass to Huddleston, who stepped across the goal line. Bynum appeared to put the game on ice with a sixty-yard touch- down run, but the Wildcats pulled a prize out of the bag and scored from mid-field with a screen play. In the fading minutes of the game, Arizona completed a pass that carried the ball to the Gents two-yard line, and with a touchdown meaning victory for them, the gun sounded, ending the game. Huddleston makes a good gain behind the very effec- tive blocking of several linemen in the T. C. U. game. " Grandma " Stone makes iifeen yards against Missis- sippi State. Bradley and Zimmerman are giving him some good interference.

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.

Miss. State Deadlocked T. C. U. Humbled In their annual game at the Louisiana State Fair, Centenary ' s up and down Gentlemen played sixty minutes of scoreless football with Mississippi State ' s mighty Maroons. Before the season began, Mississippi State was picked as a possible number one team of the nation, but everything expected of them had not ma- terialized. On this day, however, they showed all the marks of a great team. For three quart- ers they kept the Gentlemen on the defensive, deep in Centenary territory. As the Maroons big guns blazed a new star was born for the Gentlemen. Big Jack May ' s brilliant work on the defense kept the Gentle- men in the game as time and again he inter- cepted passes and broke up running plays in backing the line. Mississippi State roundly out- played the Gentlemen those first three quarters and Linebacker Jack May is the big reason its players failed to convert their numerous ef- forts into points. In the last quarter, with " Grandma " Stone and " Weenie " Bynum showing fine form, the Gents offense began to function. The Gentlemen were the aggressors throughout that period. As the game ended they were held for downs on the State twenty-six-yard line For thrills, for drama, and for genuine enjoy- ment, the T. C. U. game was the spice of the 1937 schedule for Centenary followers. The Gentlemen scored a spectacular 10 to 9 victory over the Horned Frogs who were favored to win by almost any score they pleased. After this game Grantland Rice rated Centenary the best team in the Southwest. Centenary scored when Bynum tossed a short " sucker " pass to Huddleston over the heads of I Jt : ' V ' ' ones, tackle. Looney, end. Olzack, end. Partin, tackle. Lingo, back. May, center. Outzs, end. Patterson, end. ... ....-..■ . ..V- ' . W . the T. C. U. linemen who had been purposely allowed to break through the Centenary line. With Gentlemen doing a fine job of blocking, Huddleston raced un- touched for the touchdown. When the Gents were in trouble down on their own goal line and Bynum was forced to kick from behind it, O ' Brien caught the punt and raced through the Centenary team for a score. Birkleback had added the extra point for the Gents, but O ' Brien failed. One point behind, the Frogs moved down to the Gentle- men ' s eight-yard line, but were stopped there. O ' Brien moved back and made up for the kick he had missed earlier in the game. T. C. U. led, 8 to 6. (Continued on Page Seventy-eight) Bynum gets off for a nice gain against Texas Tech.
