He could drive through the line and yet was nimble enough to be a wonderful broken field runner. Tipping the scales at two hundred pounds and claiming ten seconds in the dash, this Cherokee was indeed hard to stop. And as if this were not enough, he turned out to be one of the greatest line-backers that the college has produced. In Mayo Faith, Centenary possessed one of the greatest kick- ers in its history, possibly in the southwest, but luck strictly was not with the Gents on that deal. Faith was drafted in the middle of football season. They also had the makings of a great passer in Charles Birtman but, lacking in good receivers, this possibility faded too. As said before, all of the first string boys were good but, with little or no reserve, they were quickly worn down in games where the opponents carried two g ood teams and sometimes three. Thus the last football season might be called a failure. The school officials have decided that this season will be the last for the duration of the war. The first game of the season was with the Majors of Millsaps, an old opponent whom the Gents had not played for several years, and the game had been conceded to the Gents by pre- season dopsters. Millsaps won, 20-0. The Gentlemen failed to penetrate the twenty yard line. However, Centenary was still in hopes of having a successful season when they left for Omaha, Nebraska, to play Creighton University. During the first half of this encounter it looked as if they finally had found themselves. For, during that first half, the Gentlemen played the Bluejays all over the place. Came the second half. Very weary Gentlemen plus fresh reserves for Creighton equals Creighton victory. Charles Birtman, Back Raymond Daugherty, End SEASON 9 fi Guy Feducia, Back Elston Golson, Tackle Tom Griffith, Back

Bob Raley tries to break away in the Washington game. Again at the beginning of the pigskin season, Centenary fans were very optimistic as to the outcome of said season, but as has been the case for the past several years, things just seemed to go the wrong way. Actually, the starting eleven was a group of A-l ball players. In Truman, " Chief, " Johnson, Centenary had the potentialities of another Jim Thorpe. This Indian halfback from Oklahoma had the build of a steamroller. GENTS START John Allums, Guard Gene Baldwin, Center Ja ck Baldwin, End
