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.

Coach Parker and Captain Williams plan some strategy for (he Gents Confronted this year with a serious short- age of experienced men, Coach Parker turned to Pete Williams as team high scorer and appointed him as captain of the Gents ' basketball team. Southpaw " Pistol " Pete, with his excellent floor game and astonishing ability to toss the ball through the hoop from all angles, proved to be a team mainstay and led the Maroon and White through the season. His play- ing ability and Coach Parker ' s directions were largely responsible for the team ' s many victories. COACH PARKER Coach Curtis Parker has established himself as one of the outstanding cage mentors in the land during his thirteen years of service as head basketball coach. Every year he takes a group of boys who specialize in football and turns them into basketball players that are smart and smooth. His annual mid- western tour has given the Gents a wide reputation, and men who know basket- ball and have seen the Maroon and White cagers in action have come forward to heap praise on his deserving shoulders. Aiding him is Coach Elmer Smith, a product of Hendrix College, who serves the Gents as assistant varsity coach and freshman basketball coach.
