The boys tangle up in the De Paul massacre . . . Louisiana Tech gets up in the air, but to no avail After this conquest the Gents caught a train to Fort Worth for a game with Texas Christian University, rated as possessing the best team in the nation. The Frogs outdid themselves in living up to their reputation and set the fireworks off against the Gents. Never has an underdog fought harder to upset a favored rival than the Gents fought in the Texas Cowtown, but victory was not in the books for the Gentlemen that day, and handicapped by team injuries and the lack of several hundred loyal supporters who were delayed on their trip to Fort Worth, the Horned Frogs won by two beautiful passes from the hands of Ail-American Davey O ' Brien. The first soared for thirty-five yards in the air and was carried for thirty yard more to a sixty-five touchdown. Another thirty-yard pass and twenty- yard run carried the Frogs to the Gents three-yard line where the most powerful team in the nation had to try three times before it could make the yardage for the score. All the scoring was in the first half, after that the Gents held their own against the man moun- tain Frogs. Barrie BlRKLEBACK bowerman Bradley Bynum Clark

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 ■

OVERTHROW THE COWBOYS It seemed that the pass jinx had caught hold of the Gents and had doomed them for another defeat when Hardin-Simmons scored first with a passing attack that originated on the Gents ' forty-four yard line. But when the air raiders were again threatening to score, Weenie Bynum hooked the ball out of the air and galloped ninety yards down the sidelines for the first Centenary score and the turning point in the ball game. With Birkleback, Bynum, and Whitehurst turning on the power the Gents scored twice more be- fore the Cowboys could start another offensive drive that would net points. They scored again just before the half but the Gents, relying on the line plunging ability of Ed Whitehurst, retaliated with another touchdown in the third quarter to end the scoring for the day and give the Gentlemen a 26 to 13 victory. Hardin-Sim- mons had gone undefeated during the past season and it was quite a feat for the Gentlemen to take them. Coach Cobb limbers up the Gents be ore a game
