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.

Before every game the players go into a huddle in the center of the court and clasp hands for luck. Apparently the elusive lady appreciated this bit of ceremony or else the Gents ' white satin uniforms caught her eye for the end of the year found the team wi th a predominance of games won and some outstanding players developed during the season.

AND THE BASKETEERS Aills, Manson, Olzack, Williams, Bynum, Banie, Bradley, Harmon, Bowerman, Coach Parker Coach Parker taught his white costumed cagers to play the game the per- centage way. The squad was short this year, having only one six-footer on the first team, and he, John Manson, was exactly that. The Gents excelled all com- petition in handling the ball and all around performance on the floor. As a team they were shifty and fast and performed spectacularly in the fashion of good little men. Every player showed coolness under fire and poise in pivoting and taking set shots. The Gentlemen play for the control of the ball and work it down to scoring position with the deliberation of men who know what they are about. Sometimes they mix the opposition up with a fast breaking game that finds the " little Gents " breaking free under the hoop for easy baskets, and adding more victories to their enviable record of games won.
