Gents In The Not so impressive in matches won as a team, but the " favorite sons " in their popularity with the fans, the Gentlemen boxers had an up and down season. In the first five matches of the year only three men, Claude Mason, Herbie Mashino, and Jack Linsky, turned in victories. Against Louisiana Tech, all three were victorious. In the two matches with Southwestern, only Mashino was victorious in the first and he and Linsky the only victors in the second. Against Oklahoma A. M. the three Musketeers were all victorious, but Linsky dropped his bout in the Murray Teachers ' match. The Gents scored their first team victory of the year over the Missis- sippi State Maroons. Johnnie Tumminello, who had fought two draws and dropped three heart-breaking decisions for the Gents, combined with the three musketeers in turning in victories. Max Fagan and Arden Ballard fought draws on this card to give the Gents the victory by an impressive margin. It was in the next match that Tom Swirczynski began a winning streak that did much to help the team score throughout the remainder of the season. Swirczynski gaining his first experience as a fighter, did not join the squad until the season was well under way. In every fight Tom showed improvement, and at the end of the season he had developed into an aggressive, hardhitting fighter. Coach Tom Cobb Coach Cobb and Assistant Dean plan the battles for a coming match. Gent leather pushers take conditioning exercises. In the Oklahoma A. M. match at home honors were even at the end of six bouts; Herbie Mashino scored a thrilling three- round decision over Kye Yackeyonny, tough Indian boxer, to continue a win- ning streak begun the match before and to turn the tables on Oklahoma A. M. The Gents presented a much better team than the Aggies had faced in Oklahoma. Tom Swirczynski won a decision from C. B. Coffee, Tumminello from Buck Kinsey, and Claude Mason scored a knockout over Mule Dobbs to give the Gents their victory. Millsaps proved easy for Centenary ' s up and coming boxing team. In a six-bout match the Gents scored four knockouts and won two decisions to take every bout on the program. Swirczynski, Tumminello, Mason, and Mashino scored knockouts. Linsky and Ballard won decisions. By a five to three margin the Wolves of Loyola University stopped the winning streak of the Centenary ringsters. Defeat came to the Gentlemen when it became necessary to forfeit the 135 pound bout

John Lingo, center. Weenie Bynum, torward. Pete Williams, lorward. Coach Parker Explains the Game. The Team in Conference Bill Snyder, for three years has played a first string forward position for the Gents. A crack scorer and a col- orful floorman, Bill, added the points that drove the opposition to desperation from far out on the floor. In several games this year Pete Williams stole the spotlight from the all-conference men by flashing a sensa- tional game that gave him high point honors on several nights. When the others failed to function with their customary efficiency, Pete came through to keep the slate clean. John Henry Ouzts and Al Beasley were the guards on this year ' s five. Ouzts was a colorful floorman and a crip-shot artist. Unselfish in his handling of the ball, he usually waited until he could dash in under the basket before he took his shots. Beasley by his great defensive ability became one of the outstanding men on the squad. He was given the high scorers on the opposing teams to watch and how well he handled his job can be noted by the low score of several opponents. Sophomore John Manson was first reserve and played often enough to be fourth high scorer for the year. His great natural ability if further developed is certain to carry him to stardom during his remaining years of eligibility.

Ring and Sewilie Whitney, Southern A. A. U. champion, outpointed Herbie Mashino in a sensational bout that found Mashino finishing strong. Claude Mason went at Harley Caw- thorne in such a manner as to cause the referee to stop his match in the second round. Mason knocked Caw- torne down four times in the two rounds. Linsky and Johnny Tummi- nello won decisions. Louisiana Tech in a match at Ruston proved to be too tough for the Gents. Tumminello, Swirczynski, and Mason were the only victors for the Gents. Mashino dropped a close decision to Rex Holstead. In the return match with the Loyola Wolves, the Gentle- men returned to winning ways. The Gents came back by winning five of the eight bouts. Tumminello and Mason scored knockouts and Linsky, Mashino, and Swirczynski won deci- sions. Closing out the season, the Gents won a three to two victory over Mur- ray State. It was Herbie Mashino ' s win in the main event that brought the victory, for until that time the match was deadlocked. Curtis Jones scored a third round knockout to even things up for the Gents. Ballard, Tumminello, Mason, Henriksen, Swircynzski, Linsky, Mashino, ones. The referee raises a Gent ' s hand in token of victory.
