ia»iiiT«iiiiraflJfri • ' M ' s S WAMPE D The second contest for the Gentlemen proved the most dis- astrous of the ten played, because the Texas Christian Horned Frogs before a home crowd of some 8,000, opened their season with a field day, rolling up 41 points against the Gents ' 6. It was one of those games when everything one team does is wrong and everything the other does is right. For although T. C. U. used thirty players, they just couldn ' t make a mistake and they turned in their best per- formance of the year. To point out the real situation in Fort Worth, Felix R. McKnight, Associated Press writer, made this observation about the game: " Centenary wasn ' t as bad as the score indicates. They were the victim of breaks that, to say the least, are infrequent. " James Barnes Back F. M. May Back Norris McCrary Tackle J. F. Wilkins Back Following the Fort Worth encounter, the Gentlemen, accompanied by the band and cheering section, jour- neyed to Houston to meet Rice, their third Texas team and one of the powers of the Southwest Conference. Here for the third time in as many weeks, the Gents were overpowered by a larger and more experienced team, this time by a 25-0 score. The Centenary offensive folded up and while Weems and Keel, two Sopho- more flashes were scampering all over the field, the Gents were stopped cold. This contest was the opening game for the Owls and was played before a crowd of 15,000. On October 12th, Centenary entertained the Billikens of the University of St. Louis under lights, and scratched the win column for the first time as they handed the visitors an impressive 19-6 defeat. This con- test was featured by the 85-yard jaunt of Truman " Chief " Johnson early in the first quarter and it was Johnson

FIRST FOE But even this is not so bad when you discover that two of their conquerors were undefeated for the season and that a third was the runner-up in the Southwest Confer- ence race. The Gentlemen squad, composed mainly of a fighting band of Sophomores, opened the season by dropping a heartbreaker to the Cowboys from Hardin-Simmons by a 15-13 count. The Maroon and White warriors fought a brilliant uphill battle, for after trailing by two touchdowns in the first half, they came back to lead the Cowboys 1 ) % Coach Smith 13-12 going into the last few minutes, only to have vic- tory snatched from their grasp by the twenty-five yard field goal of Murray Evans, substitute center. Evans is the same player whose extra point caused the Gentlemen a 7-6 defeat in the 1939 campaign. Although the Gents played their hearts out to win this initial contest, the last-minute kick gave the Texans the game, but in Owen Goodnight and " Scat " Russell, the Gents met two of the finest backs in the Southwest, who went on to lead their team to an undefeated season.

In this victory, all the Gentlemen played well and for the first time, they showed their offensive strength. With three losses and one victory under their belts, the Gents made their longest trip of the season across the desert to Tucson, Arizona, to help the University Wildcats to celebrate their Homecoming before some 10,000 people. The first half, the Gentlemen fought valiantly to mark up their second win and as the second half commenced, the score was tied, but the superior power of the Wildcats, led by a brilliant back, Johnny Black, along with the difference in altitude, scon made it evident that the Gents wouldn ' t be able to keep the pace. Although they were severely defeated by the score of 29-6, the kicking of Delmar Hamby and Mayo Faith caused considerable comment among the Westerners. The following week, the Centenary College Gents went to Natchitoches to engage the Normal Demons, for the first time on Demon soil. The Gentlemen, although they were the underdogs at the outset, outplayed the Demons for three and a half periods, but gave the game away on fumbles and pen- alties. The tide turned against the Gents in the fourth quarter when Roland Migues, Looney Crawford, Guard W. T. Jacks, Tackle Claude McCrocklin, Tackle
