ISS. STATE The football fortunes of the elusive extra point that had smiled on the Gents the week before, turned with trifling snobbish- ness to favor the second team out of the West to visit the Gents ' gridiron in two weeks. The Arizona Wildcats brought about another 7 to 6 score, but this time the Gents were on the short end. A pass from Bynum to Manson set the Gents up for a second quarter score that put them ahead 6 to 0, but the Wildcats opened up in the final quarter with a passing attack that carried them over for a touchdown, and while a huge Homecoming Day crowd of Maroon and White supporters held its breath a Wildcat back kicked the ball squarely between the uprights for the win- ning point. With their won and lost percentage hang- ing at .500 the Gents went to Meridian, to battle Mississippi State. By scoring three touchdowns the Gents won the first of the three final conflicts that wrote a glorious finish on the end of a schedule that had been filled with hard knocks since the opening game. It was Bynum ' s passing to Olzack and Outz that set the Gents up for their scores, but the Gentlemen gained an abundance of ground through the line with Whitehurst, Bynum, Birkleback, and Barrie packing the ball. The first score came on the first play of the second quarter, on a pass from Bynum into the end zone to Outz after two passes, one from Wee Weenie and another from Bowerman to Olzack, had carried the Gents from the fifty yard line to a first down on the Maroon ten. With the ball down on State ' s thirty yard line in the same period, Bynum faded back ten yards and hurled a pass to Outz who was downed in his tracks on the Maroon two-yard line. Bynum went through center on the first try for the Gents ' second score. A hard running attack in the third period netted the Gents a third score. Birkleback, White- hurst, and Bynum contributed a series of short gains that set the Maroons back against their goal line. They were left sprawling as Bynum crashed through for his second touchdown and the Gents final tally, which gave them a 19 to victory. After this game Coaches Parker, Cobb, and Smith refused to name any individual stars although some of them shone like gold pieces on the gridiron. They gave the victory to the team as a whole, stating that the Gents won because they were all playing ball. Partin Patterson Rawlinson

V T 1 , M V % J (mm Olzack OUTZ Padgett Centenary throws Loyola lor a Joss (he hard way By the magic of Alvin Birkleback ' s educated toe, the Gentlemen nosed out a one point, 7 to 6 victory over the Loyola Lions of Los Angeles. After the Gents wearied themselves with an offensive drive in the second period that gained a lot of territory, but failed to reach pay dirt, the Lions took the ball where the Gents left off on the twenty-five yard line and on nine plays and a fifteen yard penalty carried the ball over for a score. Cotton Barnes came off the Centenary bench in the third quarter and unleashed his pitching arm to show the visitors from the West Coast what Southwestern football was really like. His long pass to Outz on the Lions ' eighteen yard line set the stage for the touchdown that was made by gains of Birkleback and Whitehurst through the Westerners ' line. Birkleback ' s kick gave the Gents the game by a one point margin as the Lions had failed to make the extra point on their previous attempt.

FINISH THE SEASON WITH Using steamroller tactics engineered by first, second, and third string players, the Gents turned in their largest scoring spree in more than ten years in defeating the Blue Demons of De Paul University by the staggering sum of 48 to 0. From the very first, when White- hurst and Bynum took turns carrying the ball until Whitehurst crashed over for the score that put the Gents out in front 6 to 0, there was never any doubt about the winner and the only question was how big the score would be. Coach Parker tried to make it easier for the Chicago boys when he saw that the Gents had the best of it, but second and third stringers played as viciously as the first team and the Gents ' score mounted. The running of Bob Barrie was one of the high points of the game as the reserve back tore off one long run after another. It was a big day for the boys who usually watch from the bench and they made the most of their opportunity and a name for themselves in keeping the Blue Demons on the run.
