CENTENARY ' S MASCOT :- , Centenary ' s mascot, Walt O ' Roark, six-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. W. N. O ' Roark, ardent Cente- nary boosters. Walt in his number 1 1 uniform has offered inspiration to Centenary athletes. At bas- ketball games he delighted the crowds by hoop- ing the ball with either one or two hands. THE PEP SQUAD The cheer promotion jobs were ably filled by Billie Katherine Pryor, Betty Mae Coburn, Ollie Day, and Camp Flournoy, head cheerleader, elected by the student body. In Day and Flournoy, Centenary saw two of the peppiest and most en- ergetic pep promoters to ever hold a megaphone and their wise cracks often pepped up the spirits of the crowd.

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. '

Starting the season with one of the largest squads in history, the Centenary Freshmen grid team turned in another successful season. Under the guidance of Coaches Norman Buckner and Alvin Birkelbach, the Frosh made a good showing against the teams that they played in addi- tion to scrimmaging the varsity all season. Their first game was against the Green Ripple, Tulane freshman, and even though they were defeated by a count of 13 to 7, the game was the talk of everywhere. Supposedly outweighed and outclassed the Junior Gents astounded the New Orleanians by holding the Greenies for a while and then the climax came when diminutive Wallace Spenser, Centenary back, dashed 85 yards for a touchdown through the entire Tulane team. However, the superior power of the Greenies was too much and they pushed over two tallies to take the game. 1940 Junior Gents The Gents then returned and again took up their primary purpose which was getting the varsity in shape for their contests. It was soon evident that changing offenses and defenses every week at the varsity ' s will was having its effect on the Frosh because in the next two contests they were decisively defeated by Louisiana Tech ' s Freshmen and Northeast Junior College. The climax of the season came, however when the Junior Gents tackled the Junior Demons from Normal and handed them a 7 to 6 licking. This made the season a successful one, for in this victory they had revenged the varsity defeat by Normal. This Freshmen team added many hopefuls to the varsity for the coming year in Jack Baldwin, Raymond Dougherty, Forest Lee, and Eugene Russ, whom the coaches have found some out- standing ball players and they promise to see plenty of action on Centenary teams in the future.
