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.

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

Barb Basketball Team — Preliminary Winners Bradley, Wylie, Pearce, Burgess, Vinson. Basketball Champions F. M. May, Harris, Helm, Jack May, LeGrange. Intramural Sports Intra-mural sports took a forward step this year when Coach Tom Cobb took over the directing reins. Under his guiding hand athletic leagues were organized by the Greek groups and the non-fraternity boys were represented by teams known as Barbs. An athletic program for the entire year was outlined to designate a champion in every sport and beautiful trophies were bought to make the championship titles more desirable. Football was the first sport on the intra-mural dish. In a round robin of games the Kappa Alpha ' s won the championship by defeating every team in the league. The Barbs had the next best record, but to a fighting Sigma Phi team goes the credit for playing the champions their closest game. Scoring on the last play of the first half, the K. A. ' s won, 7 to 0. At the conclusion of the football season, the representatives of the various teams met with Sports Editor Andy Berry and named an All-Intra-Mural football team. Boys honored were : ALL-INTRA-MURAL TEAM L. E.— Bennett, Barb. L. T.— O. W. Lewis, Theta Kappa Nu. L. G. — Swinehart, Sigma Phi. C. — McKinney, Barb. R. G.— Willis, Kappa Alpha. R. T. — Jones, Kappa Alpha. R. E.— Hale, Kappa Alpha. Q. B. — Skeeters, Theta Kappa Nu. H. B— Ruff in, Barb. H. B.— Ray, Kappa Alpha. F. B. — Pipsaire, Kappa Alpha. HONORABLE MENTION Bar- Line: Head (Theta Kappa Nu); Steger (Kappa Alpha); nidge (Barb); Ferrell (Lambda Theta Chi). Backfield: Dawson (Kappa Alpha); Armistead (Sigma Phi); Krentel (Sigma Phi). The intra-mural groups answered the call of the hardwood floor and the bouncing basketball with a five team race for another championship. In a round robin of games, with each team playing the other teams twice, the Barbs came out with the best record by winning every game. These games, however, were only for practice, and the championship was decided in a tournament including all of the teams and played through in a single night. Play began at 7:15 p. m. and at 11:00 the Dormitory " Sweats " had just beaten a tired Barb team to win the championship.
