A STAR RETURNS Take Hanna returned to his Alma Mater to take up football duties, not as a student of the game but as head coach and athletic director succeeding Coach Curtis Parker. Coach Hanna was a star of the Gentlemen ' s team in 1927, 1928 and 1929 and was known for his great competitive spirit and leadership. His hustling qualities made him known to the sport lovers of this section and all through the remaining years his name has been a by-word in pigskin circles. Nine years of coaching in high schools of Louisiana and Texas have stamped him as a fine instructor and he comes here with a splendid record of achievement and thousands of loyal supporters. He is the first Cente- nary graduate to serve as head coach for his Alma Mater.
