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.

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 . . .

ACROSS The Squad Frank Keith C. E. Ewing Randy Mayer MURLYON LaGrONE Ed Rand, Manager C. E. Ewing gets ready for a smashing return . . the sun and his opponent Frank Keith irowns at To decide the " who ' s who " of the tennis team, the annual campus wide tournament was held early in Sep- tember and four veterans turned back younger opposition to retain their team positions. The opening match of the year found Frank Keith, C. E. Ewing, Randolph Mayer, and Murlyon La Grone playing the " gentlemen ' s game " for Centenary under the direction of Ed Rand, elected as team manager. The duties of the manager comprise such details as scheduling matches, keeping the players in balls, finding transportation and acquir- ing the necessary funds, which makes the player ' s job of defeating his opponent seem simple by com- parison. To date the team has played Stephen F. Austin here and on their courts with the result that on both occasions each team has won three matches each. As we go to press, the " men in white " are undertaking the most ambitious schedule to be tackled by a Centenary team in many years. Included on the program are matches with Illinois College, Michigan Western State Teacher ' s College, Mississippi, Louisiana College, Southwestern, Louisiana Normal and Tech. Randy Mayer demon- strates correct form on the forehand drive while Murlyon LaGrone shows the same on a backhand
