Sammy Ragland was the only undefeated member of the team. His record in the nine bouts in which he participated showed seven wins and two draws. Jack Linsky, the team headliner, met defeat once. At New Orleans against the Loyola Wolfpack ' s Ed Harvey, Linsky lost a close de- cision. He had beaten Harvey by a wide margin in a Shreveport fight earlier in the year. Richard Bond and Harry Blake were popular perform- ers on the team. Bond, known to the fans as " Popeye, " was an aggressive fighter and a consistent winner. Blake was handicapped in the win column by the might of the opposition he was forced to meet. He met Joe Wojecki, Louisiana Tech boy with a Golden Glove reputation, in five fights, won once and drew once. Twice he engaged Sewelle Whitney, Loyola fighter who later became National Collegiate Champion. Linsky sends his Tech opponent down ioi the count . . .

Faced with the pr oblem of building a box- ing team around a nucleus of only three lettermen; namely, Johnny Tumminello, Jack Linsky, and F. M. May, Coach Tom Cobb called boxing team candidates out early in December to begin conditioning for the first matches in early January. Newcomers to the team in the persons of Richard Bond, Sammy Ragland, and Harry Blake impressed the Coach from the beginning and they were soon firmly en- trenched in three of the vacant spots on the team, with Ragland weighing in at 145, Bond at 135, and Blake at 118. As the season opened with a match against Lou- isiana Tech in Ruston, Coach Cobb was still seeking boys to fight at the two top weights. Robert Rhodes, freshman foot- ball tackle, who had performed with bril- liance on the gridiron for the Junior Gents, became the answer to his search in the 175 pound division and John Kowalczuk, fresh- man end, became a member of the team to fulfill the chores of the heavyweight. During the regular boxing season the Ma- roon and White leather-pushers met their traditional rivals — the Louisiana Tech Bull- dogs — five times. With the count tied at two matches each, the Gents and Bulldogs met in Monroe to decide the fistic suprem- acy. The results of a card that was crowded with close decisions showed Lou- isiana Tech five and one-half — the Gentle- men two and one-half. Bond and Linsky were the only winners for the Gents, and Ragland, who had defeated Louisiana Tech opponents in four fights and his op- ponent of the night twice, became the vic- tim of the judges ' decision, who called his bout a draw, although he seemed to land the harder punches and with the most frequency. Coach Cobb gives boxei Sammy Ragland last minute instiuctions be ore sending him out The Gents came out even in two exhibition matches with Southwestern of Lafayette, split a two match series with Loyola of New Orleans, Sugar Bowl co-champions, and won the only match they fought with the Murray Aggies, Golden Glove champions of Oklahoma.

Outfielder Pitcher Pitcher For the love of the crack of the bat against a hard hit ball and the thrill of a lazy fly knocked down by an outfielder or a hot grounder scooped up by an infielder, the Gentlemen play baseball. Baseball on the campus exists because the boys like the game. No emphasis is placed on winning and the schedule is crowded in between spring football sessions. Coach Elmer Smith called out his little band of team candidates just six days before the first game with Louisiana Tech. The boys were allowed to go to the positions they had played before and after looking them over for a day or two Coach Smith arranged the lineup, switching the players where they would give the team the most strength. After a series of practice games at home, others were scheduled with Louisiana Tech, Louisiana Normal, and Southwestern, and the season was underway.
