BASKETBALL At the half of every basketball game while spectators munch peanuts, gossip, or take a stretch, the coach and the boys on the squad gather in the locker rooms and put their heads together for a council-of-war. They have seen by now how the enemy works and they put all of their strategy together to counter-attack the opponent ' s plans. Finally the time comes for the last half. Eager to try out their new ideas, they present such a picture of enthusiasm and determination that you know that as long as we have students such as these enrolled in our college, Centenary will never die.

The 1939 Freshman football squad. THE JUNIOR GENTS One of the hardest working and most aggressive group of freshmen Centenary has ever seen showed up last fail to represent Iheir class in the football world. While their offense never was worked to perfection, their defense was really something to stand up and cheer about. The Junior Gents started this season off with a scoreless tie against Northeast Center. Holding the Indians from Monroe on their own three-yard stripe in the closing minutes of play, the Frosh gave us one of the most thrilling finishes to a football game we have had the pleasure of seeing. In their second game, the Freshmen trounced the Louisiana Tech Bullpups 28 to 6 with an effec- tive aerial attack. The next major conflict was with Lamar Junior College at Beaumont, Texas, where the Junior Gents came out on the short end, 7 to 0, despite the outstanding kicking on the part of Mayo Faith. In their final game with Louisiana Normal Frosh, they lost 12 to 6 after three scoreless periods. Outstanding among the freshmen this year were Mayo Faith with his kicking ability, Charles Birtman with his passing and line crashing, and Hose Weatherford, receiving Birtman ' s passes at right end. In reality, all of the boys deserve mention and we are looking forward to some good varsity ma- terial next year.

Starting off with a very heavy schedule and anly a week of training behind them, the Maroon and White basketeers hopped into their first game of the season and defeated Ouachita College of Arkansas, 38 to 24. The Gents had the services of five returning let- termen, including three seniors and two juniors, along with eight sophomores. In the final standings of the year, the Maroon and Whites won nine games and lost eight in the S.I. A. A. Conference and won six in non-conference bat- tles. GENTLE Jowers and Boweiman retrieve the ball horn a Loyola man. Outstanding players for the Gentlemen during the past season were Captain Max Bowerman, a little fellow with plenty of scrap and determination to make up for his height; A. R. Jowers, sophomore high scoring ace; Delwin Heft, fast break- ing guard; Flash Harmon, sparkplug of the team; and Alex Penny, tall dependable forward. These boys usually made up the starting five, while the reserve team was made up entirely of sophomores. Of these, Melbourne Crawford should be given credit for being a sparkplug whenever needed; Ed Murphy also did his share of being a good utility man; Tyler Pirtle, Claude Teel, Lavelle Murphy, and John Carter were the other reserves who were ready to help whenever the need for replacements was felt.
