THE BASKETBALL Maurice Odom, Guard Bo Whitten, Guard There have been fortunate and unfortunate basketball seasons at Centenary but the season this past year was a combination of both. At the beginning of the fall term the prospects for one of the best cage teams in this territory were excellent. With the fine group of senior varsity men that was on hand and the hope of blending some excellent sophomore material, basketball stock was exceedingly high for this year. Then fate stepped up and threw the first strike. One of the most promising of the sophomore candidates for the starting line-up, S. D. McConathy, was killed in an automobile accident enroute to his home one week-end. This of course was a blow to the entire squad but, in spite of it, they went on to win all of the games that they played. Then fate threw strike number two. Ed Hoynoski, Center Alvin Martin, Center Gordan Brown, Forward

CELEBRATION Four people who take a very active part in the dif- ferent events of the day are the cheerleaders. Serv- ing in that capacity this year were Dudley Beene, head man of the foursome, Joanna Glassell, Susie Mulkey, and Buddy Kinne- brew. . . . Another group that does its share of work on this day is the college band. Here they are seen turning a corner in the downtown section of Shreveport. . . . The Zeta Tau Alpha sorority took the prize for the best float of the day. Here the girls get ready for the pa- rade. Which girl it was that portrayed the frog is still a mystery.

SEASON Raymond Daugherty, Guard Because of bad athletic sea- sons, financially and otherwise, during the past several years, the heads of the school and the athletic department decided to abandon the inter - collegiate program. It was decided, how- ever, and much to the relief of Judson Thornton, Guard Elmer Smith, Head Basketball Coach Melbourne Crawford, Guard the basketball fans, that the rest of the program for the year would be carried on. Strike three coming up. December 7, 1941. A blow, not only to the athletic department of Centenary College but to the whole world. WAR. Another meeting of the heads of school. Another decision. Inter- collegiate athletics would be discontinued at mid-term. Thus the hopes of having on A-l cage team for 1941-42 were blasted into oblivion. The only consolation that is left for disheartened fans is the fact that the Gents had beaten Louisiana Tech in an early game and that Tech won the Louisiana Inter-Collegiate Championship this season. You might call it rationalizing, but we believe that the Gents could have won it.
