Claude Whitehurst Guard The Homecoming crowd watches a Tech man break into the open Claude Teel End Although the Gentlemen hadn ' t stopped at home in weeks, the next week, they were off again, this time to Memphis to play the Lynx of Southwestern who had held Clemson to a 13-13 tie two weeks before. On a field that was soggy and muddy due to rain, the Gents came through with a Garrison finish to take the Lynx by a 14-6 count. Southwestern was the first to reach pay dirt but the Gentlemen came back to tally with Barnes kicking the important point to give Centenary a one point lead. But this one point lead did not satisfy the Gents and the climax of the game came when center, James Camp- bell, intercepted a pass in the last quarter and jaunted 52 yards for the touchdown that salted the game away. One of the most remarkable things about the game was the forty yard kicking average Mayo Faith kept that day with a wet ball on a field that was slippery and muddy. It was nothing short of phenomenal. Centenary closed the season with its customary Thanksgiving day tussle against the Bulldogs of Louisiana Tech and in addi- tion to being the final game it was also Homecoming for the Gents. The game was played in Shreveport and for the first time since 1921, Tech acquired a victory over the Gents. The DEFEATED BY

outplayed by the Bears the first half, but after the intermission, the story was a different one. With J. F. " Fizz " Wilkins leading a smashing running attack and with James " Cotton " Barnes passing successfully first to Johnson and then to Lavelle Murphy, the Gents iced their second game with a lightning finish late in the last quarter. Bud Schwenk and Jack Frost proved the outstanding threats for the Bears. On November the 11th, while the country was celebrating the Armistice Centenary was visiting the Red Raiders of Texas Tech in Lubbock, with the idea in mind of knocking the flashy Texans from the ranks of the undefeated. Ramrodded by the accurate sharpshooting of Barnes, the Gentlemen scored early and threw a scare into the Red Raiders, but at the start of the second half, the superior reserves of the Texans wore out a tired, travel-worn Centenary team, that had played only two home games in eight starts, and the final score of 26-6 showed the power of the Lubbock team.

OLD RIVAL game was a bitterly contested one which was decided when a Bulldog back intercepted a pass on his own 25 yard line and ran 75 yards for a touchdown. Although the whole team showed well, the outstanding play of the game came when Mayo Faith, standing deep in his own territory, kicked some 85 odd yards over the head of the safety man to the one-foot line of Tech where the ball was downed. This contest was the last time seniors James Barnes, James Campbell, Norris Mc- Crary, F. M. May, and J. F. Wilkins would ever wear the Maroon and White of Centenary in battle and they all turned in creditable performances. All in all, Centenary ' s season, although not as brilliant as some previous years, was far from unsuccessful because with a new coach, a new system, and a squad composed mainly of Soph- omores who were rather inexperienced, one could hardly ex- pect miracles. The entire season was summarized rather well by George W. White writing for Eddie Dooley ' s Football Annual when he said, " Obviously though, with Hanna install- ing a new boiler system in the cellar, no one has a right to holler, if there isn ' t too much steam heat upstairs. " Delmar Hamby Back The Gents tackle a Tech man " en masse. '
