They believe that all great football players love the rough contact and like to mix it in practice as well as in the game, and, finally, Coach Parker has his own code of sports- manship. He says, " I do not like for my boys to be good losers. I want them to play the game hard and clean with a desire to win and when they lose I want them to take it hard. Because it is easy to lose and hard to win. If they lose one week, I want them to take it seriously, to think things over, and come back next week scrapping harder than ever. " ... I J

GENTS CONQUER NORMAL AlLLS Barnes Allen The 1938 schedule played through has added another illustrious page to the annals of the Maroon and White football teams. The Gentlemen of 1938 were not as successful as some listed in this time worn ledger, but to their followers they furnished many thrilling moments in their gridiron combats. Students and fans will remember the season for the outstanding stars developed in seven glorious games in which the Gents were conquerors and four heartbreaking losses when the Maroon and White was subdued. The Purple and Gold of Louisiana Normal was the first to test the Gents ' power in a night game played in Shreveport. After an even first quarter the Gents ' backfield began to function with Whitehurst and Bynum teaming on passes and runs to score the Gents ' first touchdown. Ed went over on a power play which Weenie started with a couple of jaunts that carried him to the one-yard line after a pass to Whitehurst had put the Gents on the twenty-six. The Gents scored a safety when a Normal back fumbled the kickoff and then fumbled behind his own goal long enough for Whitehurst to tackle him before he could carry the ball out. A powerful running attack with Wennie as the principal threat brought the Gents another score and their victory, 14 to 0. Weenie goes down with the ball in the Loyola game ■
