Coach Elmer Smith On the Diamond Centenary athletes take their Spring football practice in broken doses, and the baseball schedule is played between the doses. A minor sport here, the call is issued for candidates and the boys who come out are formed into a team. But once practice is begun, the sport is taken with all seriousness. From early in the afternoon until late afternoon the crack of the bat against the ball and the smack of the ball in the glove can be heard on the hill out behind the old gymnasium. Coach Smith drills his boys hard, and in a short time a remarkably fast team is built. Eight men who are conspicious in football are in the starting line-up: Huddleston, second base; Stone, short stop and pitcher; Lingo, left field, and Beasley, center field; are all seniors and were aces on this year ' s eleven. Ouzts, third base, Zimmerman, right field, and Harris, catcher, are all juniors and members of the football squad. John Manson, pitcher, is a member of both football and basketball squad. Sonnie Hyde, who has had considerable sandlot experience as a baseball player is the only other sophomore and the only member of the starting line-up who does not play football. He is the first baseman and so far has made a creditable showing. It is impossible to bring you information about the results of the season ' s schedule, but Coach Smith indi- cates that the team will be stronger this year. He praises the work of John Henry Ouzts, third baseman, John Manson, pitcher, " Grandma " Stone, pitcher and shortstop, and John Lingo, outfielder. Games have been scheduled with Stephen F. Austin, Louisiana Tech, Purdue University, and Mississippi State. 1938 Baseball Squad K ■ « gitf| warn

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.

To make the collegiate sports dish com- plete, the athletic department, while taking no active interest in directing the sport, has offered letters to the boys who can earn them in tennis, and has appropriated $50 to help pay any expenses that the team may have. Tommy Richardson has been named captain and manager of the team. Tommy, a veteran on the team, has been a consistent winner for two years. His familiarity with the coaches and the players of the surrounding schools qualifies him for the position. He has arranged matches, home and home agreements, with Louisiana College, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana Normal, Millsaps, Stephen F. Austin, and Mar- shall College. Baylor ' s touring rac- keteers will be met on the local courts, but no arrangements have been made for a return match at Waco. Mayer and Richardson shake hands with Lagione and Ewing before a prac- tice match. Lagrone, Mayer, Ewing, Richardson. Across the Net The singles players square oil for a prac- tice match. In selecting the team, all seeded players were arranged on a ladder rating, with the privilege of challenging the man on the rung ahead. The first five players after several weeks of inter-squad play are C. E. Ewing, Tommy Richardson, Murlyon Lagrone, Frank Keith, and Randolph Mayer. These boys will represent Centenary on the courts this year. Judson Chidlow, an ace of last year ' s team, is now back in school, but not eligible for the team. Richardson plans to feature this crack player in several exhibition matches during the playing season.
