" They also serve who only stand and wait, " with its deep significance describes somewhat the lot of the reserves. These men know football at its worst. Varsity players detest the druggery of daily practice, but get genuine enjoyment out of the games. The re- serves, shaded by other players in ability, are kept on the squad as an insurance against injuries. In order to be ready should their services be needed, they take part in the mid-week scrimmages to keep in condition, and when the going gets roughest are never spared because of the injury risk. Among this group may be a " dark horse " whom the coach has overlooked, and with the proper game experience may develop into a real star. The lightning failed to strike and these boys remained members of the reserves. Next year they will be out there fighting for one of the places left by graduating seniors. Harris, Mason, O ' Brien, Allen, Hanson. The Reserves and Freshmen The short and long of the Frosh squad. Coaches Parker, Hohman and Decker and fresh- men reserves watch the Frosh game. Making up in quality what they lacked in quantity the Junior Gents completed a four-game schedule with some success. The fourteen members that made up the squad of boys eligible for varsity competition reached the high spot on their schedule in defeating the Louis- iana Tech Bullpups, 19 to 6. They lost the other three games played. Members of the freshmen squad were: Tom Swirczyn- ski, Willard Coffey, and Claude Teel, ends; Morris Mc- Crary and Bill Reynolds, tackles; Eugene Holman, cen- ter; James Tucker and Johnnie Hendricksen, guards; Loyd Hearne, J. F. Wilkins, Cotton Barnes, Earl Spell, Maxie Fagan and Bob Barrie, backs.

The Varsity Squad Th 938 The Gents opened the conference race in a game with Southwestern of Lafayette, Louisiana. It was the first conference game to be played in the new gymnasium and the basketeers celebrated with a 44 to 28 victory. Bill Snyder hit most often to score nineteen points. After the opening five min- utes, the Gents had all the better of the engage- ment and before the end, everything was in the hands of the reserves. Louisiana Tech followed Southwestern to the local gym and suffered a worse fate. With every mem- ber on the team hitting the bucket with almost equal regularity, the Gents rolled up 52 points while holding the Bulldogs to a 29 point score. John Lingo was high scorer for the Gentlemen, with fourteen points. Between semesters, the basketeers went on the road. Their first stop was at Lafayette, where they repeated their victory over Southwestern. This time the score was 48 to 29, with John Lingo and Bill Snyder accounting for 31 points of the Gents score. Coach Curtis Parker
