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.

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.

THE JUNIOR GENTS Back tow: Heft, Phillips, Murphy, Lewellen, Kowalczuk. Second row: Rhodes, Cokley, Johnson , Harville, D ' Asto, G., D ' Asto, V. Front tow: Dennis, Mason, Wilson, Feducia Speed in the backfield, a set of swift lanky ends, and a sturdy line gave the Junior Gents a well balanced aggregation that, aside from its duties of keeping the varsity well scrimmaged, played four ball games and won two of them. The Juniors took the measure of Lon Morris, 2 to 0, and Lamar 12 to 7, but were themselves smothered by Northeast Center 26 to 0, and defeated by the Louisi- ana Tech Bullpups, 12 to 7. In the backfield, Delwin Heft showed more speed than had been seen at the Gents ' practice sessions since the days of Shorty Oslin. Heft broke away for three long touchdown runs from the line of scrimmage. Two of them were called back by game officials, but against Lamar he made one stick. Other outstanding performers in the backfield included Richard Lewis, iron man quarterback, Guy Feducia, one of the most powerful little men to ever perform for the Juniors, and Bill Dennis, halfback. On the ends Bill Phillips and Lavelle Murphy showed themselves to be promising varsity material. Outstanding linemen included hefty Merrel Lewellen at center, Bob Johnson and Gideon and Vincent D ' Asto at the guards, and Robert Rhodes at tackle. A year ' s experience of scrimmaging with the Gents and competing against other junior teams has developed the Frosh into a fast-clicking combination that should produce some valuable material for next year ' s varsity.
