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.

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

THREE STRAIGHT VICTORIES With Weenie Bynum gaining more ground than the entire Bulldog team, the Gents beat Louisiana Tech, 14 to 7 in the final game of the season. The Gents scored a first quarter touchdown and Birkleback added the extra point to put the Gents out in front, 7 to 0. In the second quarter they were on their way to a second score when Edwin Barker, Tech backfield man, pulled down a Gentle- man pass and put the Bulldogs back in the game with a beautiful run for a touchdown. Two plays after the kickoff the Gents went back into the lead when Bynum broke away for a 58-yard run that placed the ball on the Tech 15-yard line. In three plays Alvin Birkleback carried the ball over for the score. The Gents clicked from the beginning of the game and held the upper hand through- out, holding the Tech offensive at a stand still and pushing them backward with consistent running and passing attacks. With this victory over their tradi- tional rivals under their belts, the Gents wound up the grand finale of a success- ful year and closed the books on the 1938-39 season.
