FOOTBALL The team was all set for big things this year. In a pre-season broadcast, husky Jim Campbell summed up the situation this way: " Things got so bad last year I couldn ' t even get a ride to town. " And Big Jim wanted some rides this year. But the Fates seemed to have ruled differently. From the minute Hardin-Simmons was assured of victory in September until the min- ute ten games later when Tech was in a similar position in a still hotly debated contest, the Gentlemen tasted victory just three times. Two of the schools beaten were from St. Louis — which led the man- in-the-stands to yell, " Aren ' t there any more schools up there we can play? " Southwestern of Memphis was again a casualty from the Shreveport standpoint. Meanwhile, on the losing side, fans chalked up big scores, little scores, medium size scores, all spelling defeat for the Maroon and White. By the boards went T. C. U., Rice, Arizona, Normal, Texas Tech, Louisiana Tech, and Hardin-Simmons. Lack of reserves in key positions, lack of discipline in the sguad, and an abundance of dissatisfaction from coaches, fans, and players alike, combined to make the ' 40 season pretty much of a flop.

President J SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS (cont ' d) Instantly on the alert, these Phi Delt-SAE-DEKE-baiting men rushed around madly for two whole days, making it plainly known that the presence of a fourth large national fraternity on the campus was not to be tolerated by them. Before a week had gone by, their fears were allayed. From Dallas came word that the group which had scared the daylights out of K.A. and Kappa Sigma, would in February be initiated en masse into the local chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha, which had been dying a natural death for two years. With the promise of fresh blood, LCA again took its rightful position in campus affairs, and Greek met Greek in the joints, friendly again. January brought still a third fright to the Greeks, this one a major riot. From the office was issued an ominous docu ment, purporting to be the regulations for social functions. Up in arms went the Greeks, but with less success than the ones fight- ing in Greece. Tongue-in-cheek, with a nous verrons attitude, they submitted amendments they desired. Flatly rejected in all save one instance, they came back. Impetuous ones talked darkly of revolution, succeeded in dancing in the SUB one cold Friday morning, despite warnings of expulsion. Back to classes went the Greeks, but January has not been forgotten. A major riot is still in the offing.

That ' s our basketball team. BASKETBALL Victory-hungry fans started patting the members of the Centenary basketball team on the back about October. " We know we ' ll be on the winning side when YOU start playing, " they said. But they were to be again disappointed. After a fine start locally, the annual Northern tour reddened the faces of the boosters, as they read of scores which sounded like stock market quotations in boom times. Then, back home, a flashy quint smothered Louisiana College 59-19 to start the Conference race. Enthusiasm ran high. This was quickly followed by the annual slump, during which the team lost a game to every school in the Conference save one. Spirits ran low. Even basketball teams, it seems, get the reds. The season ' s work was worth complimenting. Although they didn ' t win every time, they scared the daylights out of the league leaders time and time again. And still, they didn ' t do as well as one would expect for a team as experienced as they were. Centenary ' s basketball fortunes were still so-so.
