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.

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.

Compliments of the Big Chain Stores rr The Grocery Folks of Shreveport 5? SOLDIER BOYS " The National Guard band hasn ' t been called out since the last World War. " With this assurance, Warrant Officer Orin Lincoln Igou collected a band for the 204th Coast Artillery (AA) last spring. " Just think of it, " his spiel ran, " you get paid for drilling, and a free two-week vacation at Pensacola in the summer. " Lured, some 15 Centenary students signed. Things went fine; the checks came in on time, the two weeks at Camp Beauregard, while a little removed from the sunny shores of Florida, still were worth the while. And then came the President ' s order, which stated that the 204th would be required to spend at least one year in training beginning in January. Suddenly shocked were Igou and men. Amid shouts and tears of mingled rejoicing and wailing they left in January for a year. Igou was with his men, although he could have been deferred. It seems the pay in the army was more than in the Centenary Music School.
