• 1 8 6 • .•••■•• When a nation torn with internal strife covered its own land with its own blood in the War Between the States, Centenary College literally gave all that it had to the cause it deemed just. In the minute book of the college there appears this notation, scrawled across a whole page under the date of October 7, 1861, apparently by Professor Pugh: " Students have all gone to war. College suspended. And, God help the right! " Fighting was fierce around Jackson. The College became a Confederate hospital, was captured by the invaders and used by them as a hospital and stable. Nearly 100 students were in college and another 100 in the preparatory school when this war came. In it the rifle made its first appear- ance as a weapon of wholesale destruction and its deadliness caused notations of " killed in battle " to be placed beside many names on the Cente- nary roster. Their flaming young spirits went shouting up the pathways of glory and honor, if not to victory. The dark maroon of their college colors were dyed with the scarlet of their own blood. New heroes joined those who had pre- ceeded them, to await those who would follow.

Coaches Cobb, Smith, and Hanna look over some football publicity Marvin " Hoot " Gibson, laithiul trainer of the Gents, puts away the game helmets for the last time When the football season of 1941-42 closed, it was announced that this would be the last sea- son for the duration of the war. While it was a poor season, it was not a season where the blame could be placed on any individual or individuals. In just plain English, Centenary lacked the reserve strength to compete against the highly-strengthened athletic teams on their schedule. Of course, when inter-collegiate athletics is abolished, somebody must go. A newly- adcpted intra-mural program, has been set up and, naturally, the director of athletics, Jake Hanna, will stay on to direct this program. It is with regret that we see Tom Cobb, line coach; Elmer Smith, backfield coach; and Mar- vin " Hoot " Gibson, trainer, leave the school. These men have been at Centenary for quite some time and each of them, has done a fine job. The Coaching Staff . . .
