a c We Play Football ] . They were all high school stars. Hav- ing proven that they can take it by making their freshman numerals, they now dream of greater glory on the varsity as they view trophies won by the great teams of the past. 2. Their first practice — they watch the lettermen from last year strut their stuff, and pick up a few big time pointers. 3. Coach Parker decides to try one out. His buddy helps him with his helmet and wishes him the best of luck. 4. The publicity department makes pictures like this to show opposing teams and fans hew vicious the players are. 5. " Boy, how did they catch you like that. " More publicity stuff. 6. Fall — just before the first game. The reserves rub " Boot ' s " kinky locks for luck. 7. The whistle blows — the game is on. The opening kickoff is returned to mid-field as the cheerleaders wlfad up the rous- ing send-off. 8. A warm-up game— - varsity men take it easy, iounging on the sidelines while the reserves strut their stuff. 9. A hard game — the going gets rough — the reserves watch in strained silence as the regulars fight for touchdowns. 10. A boy is hurt — Trainer Gibson and Coach Parker rush on the field to look him over and ren- der first-aid. 11. It may be a bad in- jury — the loss of a gcod man for the rest of the season. In this case White- hurst is out for the rest of the game. 12. Or it may be a trick knee, that al- lows the boy to play but slows him up. 13. If the boy is able, he stays in.

Oklo. A M Defeated, Louisiana Tech Tied In the cold and snow of Stillwater, Oklahoma, before the smallest crowd to see them play all year, the Gentlemen beat Oklahoma A. S M. 19 to 0. Failing to score during the opening period the Gents reached " pay dirt " in the sec- ond quarter on a pass from Al Beasley to John Henry Ouzts. Bynum made the lead more comfortable in the third quarter when he got off to a forty-yard gallop for a touchdown from the line of scrimmage. John Lingo and " Grand- ma " Stone soaked the game away when Lingo intercepted a pass in his own territory and ran it to the two-yard line. From there, Stone hit the line for the score. The Aggies never made a genuine threat at the Gent ' s goal line and the Gentlemen were the victors from their opening score. Bad weather again greeted the Gents as they went into the game with their ancient rivals, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. Rain during the week and on the morning of the game left the field soggy and wet. The rain, however, failed to slow up the Bulldog aerial attack. Two passes in quick succession gave Tech the jump on the Gents. On the first pass, Eager, Tech back, faded far back with Curtis Jones in hot pursuit. Just as it seemed that Jones would make the tackle, Eager jumped into the air and threw perfectly to Westbrook, who was almost to the Centenary goal. On the next play, Eager again faded back and tossed to Funderburk for the score. Several beautiful runs by Weenie Bynum car- ried the Gents into Tech territory a few plays after the following kickoff. Bynum was re- moved from the game, when Tech tacklers threw him into a fence on the sidelines. Tech I r v :;pl|||||::: A ' Rawlinson, center. Steeples, guard. Vinson, tackle. Whitehurst, back. Smith, guard. Stone, back. Warren, end. Zimmerman, tackle. was penalized fifteen yards for roughness and it was the Gent ' s ball on Tech ' s fifteen-yard line. " Grandma " Stone replaced Bynum and on two attempts he carried the ball over standing up. Stone ' s touchdown ended the scoring for the day and the final score, 7 to 7, brought little joy to Centenary supporters, who had hopes of winning by a wide mar- gin. During the last half both teams made scoring threats but neither could get up enough punch to put the ball over. " Grandma " Stone goes over standing up to score tor Centenary against Louisiana Tech.

and the game goes on. 14. A close game — a held goal attempt — one of football ' s thrilling moments. If it is good the game is won. If it is wide or low, just another desperate effort failed. 15. The game is won or lost. Fans happy or disappointed file out of the stands, while little boys scramble up the goal posts for color souvenirs. 16. The cheering fans are gone, the excitement is over; the varsity man realizes he is bruised and weary as he wends his way to a welcome shower. 17. A bandage is taken off a sore shoulder; cuts and bruises are treated by Trainer Gibson. 18. A refreshing shower, but muscles are still tired and sore. 19. Refreshed he dresses for the street; realizing he is hungry he rushes to a late supper. 20. The schedule completed — uniforms are hung up. The crowds will cheer for Varsity no more this year. 21. Fo r the Sophomore, season ' s end means a Varsity " C " . With a year of exper- ience he will be of more value to the team next year. 22. For the Senior the last game of the season means an end of Varsity foot- ball. If he has been studious a cap, gown and diploma are his rewards. 23. He can ' t forget those glorious days when he was the star of the team. He always comes back to see how his position is being filled. Alma Mater is proud of her old gridiron stars and honors them with introductions to the fans on Homecoming Day.
