Saetre. The band participated at all home football games, adding color and enjoyment to these events by their maneuvers on the field and numbers from their seats. The band also participated at the bond rallies and ended the year by giving a concert in honor of the seniors. The Choir made its appearance on the campus again after a year ' s absence because of the lack of Tenors and Basses. With an increased number of men students on the campus and with the cooperation of the Navy personnel, it was possible to have a mixed choir once more. The 1944-45 Choir furnished music for the annual Christmas Pageant, presented two Choral programs and assisted in the music for the Baccalaureate Services. The Choir was conducted by Walter A. Mason and accompanied by Mrs. Joyce Lyon Towns. okuZSL THE CHOIR THE SWING QUEENS Another instance of women taking over on the homefront in the absence of men was shown in the fall of 1942 when the Swing Queens were organized on the campus. The Swing Queens took the place of the Swing Kings who left school to join the country ' s armed forces. The Swing Queens carried on by furnishing music for the social affairs of the college. Their splendid work will not be forgotten. This year ' s members were: Marjorie Barre, sax; Jo Haworth, sax; Lucy Matthews, sax; Kathryn King, sax; Penelope Clark, leader and trumpet; Vir- ginia Martin, trumpet; Patricia Harrison, trumpet; Beth Caldwell, trombone; Betty Jean Kuhn, string bass; Barbara Graves, piano; Mildred Courtney, drums.

Fifteen students participated in two tourna- ments — the Mid-South Tournament in Conway, Arkansas, and the Louisiana Speech Tournament held on the Northwest- ern State campus. Maxine Frye, standing, and Eloise Richmond received second place honors in the women ' s division at the Mid-South Tournament. HIV II-I IUKAKU CAPEL I I ( .LUTON FARROW JONES MILLER NICHOLS STOVALL WARDLAW WESTALL VC ' HATLEY D R M T THK DA VIS Two major productions presented by Davis Players during the year were George Washington Slept Here, directed by Miss Thera Stovall, and The Lady Who Came to Stay, directed by Dr. Robert B. Capel. Belcw and on the opposite page are four scenes showing steps in the producing of The Lady Who Came To Stay, try- outs, painting of scenery, rehearsal, and a scene from the play. The Davis Players, the oldest extant dramatic club at North- western State College of Louisiana, was organized by Miss Mary Frances Davis. During the next five years it grew in popularity and upon Miss Davis ' resignation, Miss Annetta L. Wood joined the college faculty and took over the sponsorship. Davis Players were responsible for the bringing to the campus of Delta Eta Cast of Alpha Psi Omega, honorary dramatic frater- nity, in 1933, and of the organization of Junior Dramatic Club, open to all students, in 1935. It has also sponsored the annual Lesche Play contest for the best one-act drama concerned with Louisiana history or legend, the prizes for which have been awarded each year since 1919 by the Lesche Club, a Natchitoches woman ' s club.

THE 1944 SEASON After a one-season lapse, the Demons of Northwestern State re-entered inter-collegiate athletics. With few experienced players on the roster, Head Coach Harry Turpin formed the nucleus of his team from the V-5 Re- fresher Unit stationed at Northwestern State. The squad was rounded out by thirteen civilians. Although the Demons set no scoring records, the season could be termed a success, if only for the reason that it did mark the reactivation of com- petitive sports which had been idle on the campus since the fall of 1942. First Row: Kasparian, Longhi, Parrish, Cook, Daniels, M ' Lady, Neel, Bunger, Stone, McElvain. Second Row: Billy Kirkland, Hermann, Riehl, Balthazar, Nagy, Stutts, McCune, Sibley, Therre, Wright, Cummings, Loupe. Third Row: Wilkins, backfield coach, Rieher, Doolin, Marx, Addington, Barrish, Garvey, Murphy, Watkins, Hagman, Brown, Kochel, Klaus, Boyd, coach, Turpin, coach. Fourth Row: Erdenig, Sweeney, Jones, Milutis, Garrett, Rogers, Angle, Webb, Butler, Wozniak, Davis. I here were no scoring threats during the remainder i the first quarter, but the Demon-, struck again to open the second period. |. P. M ' Lady, Demon back, pur the Raiders in a spot h quick-kicking out of bounds on the Raiders ' nine. The Raiders attempted to punt out of danger, bur the pass from center went wild and Wayne Swecncv. Demon tackle, recovered the ball in the end zone tor the second Demon touch- down. Art Rieher made good the extra point, and the Demons led, 13-0. The Demons threatened once again in the first half, but tumbles and a holding penal t J ruined their chance. During the second half, the Raiders came to life. Although they were behind thirteen points, they were still very much in the ball game. Sparked by Bob Baker, a fine fullback, and A] Ruegg, an excellent passer, the Raiders caused the Demons some trouble. With Baker smashing between the tackles and Ruegg tossing some accurate passes, the Raiders drove to the Northwestern thirty. At this point the Raiders made their lone score on a pass from Ruegg to PetrofT. The conversion was good, and the score stood. Northwestern. 13; Marine Raiders 7. The remainder of the game definitely belonged to the Demons. Early in the fourth quarter the Demons drove to the Raiders ' nine, but a penalty ruined the scoring chance. The Raiders did not make another serious threat although Ruegg was dangerous any time he cocked his throwing arm. However, it was not until the final seconds of the game that the Demons scored again. Some fine running by Bill Riehl and a long pass from Neel to Kirkland had carried the ball to the Marines ' eight. Then, with only seconds remaining in the game, " Moose " Hagman, on a spinner play, went the remain- ing distance to the goal, carrying three would-be tacklers over with him. Riehl kicked the extra point, ending the scoring, Demons, 20 ; Raiders, 7. The Demons had won their opening game, but several faults Boyd, v Coaches FOOTBALL • 1944 Hagman, Rieher, Angle Northwestern State, 20; Marine Raiders, 7 Niu Orleans, Louisiana, September 23, 19+4 To open the 1944 season, the Demons traveled to New Orleans for an engagement with the Raiders of the Marine Officer Transportation Corps. Coach Turpin ' s squad was practically at full strength, with onlj Angle, back, and Milutis, tackle, sidelined be- cause of injuries. Nevertheless, the Raiders were the pre-game favorites in the New Orleans area and most authorities predicted a bad evening for the Demons. The Raiders received the Demons ' kickoff to open the game and immediate!) drove to a first down. In their second series of downs the Raiders gambled and lost. With the ball in mid-field and only inches to go lor a second first down, the Marines tried a line play in preference to punting. The Northwestern forward wall stopped the plav cold, and the Demons took pos- session ot the ball on the Raiders ' forty-nine-yard line. " Moose " Hagman, the jolting Demon fullback, drove to the Raiders ' thirty - an! line in three plays. Then Bobby Neel. diminutive Demon tailback, took the snap from center, fade. I hack, and dropped a per- fect pass to end " Slats " Marx on the fifteen. Mar outdistanced the Raiders ' secondary and scored stand- ing up. Art Rieher attempted to convert, but the Raiders blocked the kick. Riehl kicks while Murphy holds. tone brings down McElvain in a practice session. Balthazar, Daniels, Cook, Stutts were evident. The down-field blocking was not too good and fumbles had cost heavily. However, some players turned in outstanding performances. Sweeney was outstanding at tackles while Balthazar and Stone contributed a major portion of the Demons ' defense. The majority of the ball-carrying was performed by Bill Riehl and " Moose " Hagman. Northwestern State, 14; Camp Polk, Natchitoches, Louisiana, September 30, 1944 For the second successive week the Demons met and defeated a service team. This was the first game played at Northwestern Field in twenty-two months, and the Demons treated an enthusiastic crowd cf students and supporters to a well- earned victory. The Demons won the hard way. They not only had to play the Armed Force boys, but they had their own numerous errors to overcome. The soldiers received the opening kick-off and were stopped on their own thirty-yard line. Forced to punt, the visitors finally succeeded in getting off a kick without it being blocked, or the Demons drawing a penalty. J. P. M ' Lady, Northwestern safety, dropped the kick, and Camp Polk recovered deep in Demon territory. Here the local lads came to life, and the soldiers lost exactly nine yards in four plays. The Demons then started the drive which led to their first score. Some fine running by Neel and Riehl, coupled with a pass to Marx, took the ball to the visitors ' five-yard line. Riehl carried the ball over for the first touchdown and then converted to give the Demons a seven-point lead. The remainder of the first half showed nothing exciting. The two teams pushed each other around a bit, with the Demons having a slight edge in everything but fumbles. The half ended with the ball on Northwestern ' s thirty-five in the soldiers ' possession after recovering a fumble. The soldiers made their only serious threat at the start of the second half. With the ball on their own forty, Visger slashed off the Demons ' tackle, reversed his field and sprinted to the Demon eighteen before he was stopped. The threat ended shortly after when Balthazar recovered a fumble for the Demons. To start the final period, the soldiers took the ball on their own twenty. The Stone, Rogers, Watkins, Davis, Bunger HH f 1- H Hi ii ik. Garrett, Kochel, McCune, Wozniak, Cummings Demon line held them and they were forced to kick. The kicker was rushed and the punt was poor, going out of bounds on the visitors 1 thirty-yard line. From this point the I )emons drove to the nineteen on two running plays, and then Neel tossed a perfect pass to Kirkland who scored for the second touchdown. Riehl kicked the extra point, end- ing the scoring and giving the Demons a 14-0 victory. Northwestern State, 7; Selman Field, 20 Natchitoches, Louisiana, October 7, 1944 After two straight victories, the Demons were called upon to face the powerful Fivers of Selman Field. One of the strongest teams in Louisiana, the Flyers personnel numbered former professional and well-known college stars on their roster. The Demons succeeded in holding the airmen well in check during the first quarter. The locals ' line functioned well on defense and the line backers contributed some vicious tackling, but the visitors ' defense was just as good and their offense finally started clicking. Midway of the second quar- ter, the Flyers started the initial drive. Taking possession on the Demons ' forty, they powered their way to a touch- down in nine plays. Before the half ended, they had again scored, this time on a fifty-yard drive in eleven plays. Both drives featured Mattis and Caldwell in the ball-carrying department. The Demons made their only marker of the game in the third quarter on an unexpected play. Mattis had seemingly put the Demons in a hole with a terrific quick-kick that carried to the local ten-yard line. Neel, Northwestern safety, scooped the ball off the ground while surrounded by the entire Selman team, broke between two of them and headed for the side lines. Sibley and Stone gave him two excellent blocks, and from there on nothing but ninety yards and green grass remained ahead for a touchdown. Neel went the entire distance with the Selman pursuers far in the rear. Bill Riehl added the extra point. The Cyclones added their final score in the last minute of play with a plunge from the five-yard stripe. This play climaxed a fifty-seven-yard drive. Final score. Demons, 7 ; Cyclones, 20. Although the Cyclones effectively stopped the Demon offense, several Demons stood out defensively. Butler, freshman end, was outstanding along with Sibley, Rieher, Balthazar, and Stone. Fumbles again hurt the Demons, but even in defeat they played better ball than they had against Camp Polk. Northwestern State, 7; Southwestern, 19 Lafayette, Louisiana, October 21, 1944 The Demons ' next opponents were the Bulldogs of S.L.I. Bolstered by a large V-12 unit, the Bulldogs had earned an inevitable reputation during 1943 and were reputed to have a very powerful squad. Comparative scores gave the downstaters a twenty-point edge on the Demons, which turned out to be almost the difference. The game rocked along on fairly even terms during the first half, the edge, if any, being slightly in favor of the Bulldogs. However, in the closing minutes of the half, Colquitt, Bulldog fullback, intercepted Angle ' s pass and raced forty yards behind excellent blocking for the Bulldogs ' first score. An aroused Demon line blocked the attempt for the extra point. There was no more scoring threat during the first half. A determined Demon team took the field for the second half and gave the South- westerners some bad moments. A series of punt exchanges had given the Demons the ball in mid-field. At this point Neel kicked out of bounds on the Southwestern five. In an attempt to kick out of danger, Babin, S.L.I, halfback, got off a bad punt that only carried to his twenty-one-yard line. The Demons took possession and, led by Riehl, drove to the Bulldogs ' one. Hagman replaced Riehl who had been injured, and scored on a smash. Wright, Demon end, converted and the score stood, Demons, 7 ; Bulldogs, 6. The Demons ' lead did not last long. After a punt exchange that put the Demons in a hole, a bad punt by M ' Lady gave the Southwesterners the ball on the Demon twenty-one. The Demons shoved the Bulldogs back five yards in three plays, but on last down Colquitt gathered in a delayed pass and crossed the line for a touch- down. Again the Demons blocked the try for an extra point. For good measure, the Bulldogs scored another marker in the last quarter. A sustained drive carried the ball from the Bulldog thirty-five to the Demon six. Colquitt scored again on a delayed pass to send the score to 18-7. The extra point was added and the final score was Demons, 7 ; Bulldogs, 19. Northwestern State, 7; Louisiana Tech, 21 Natchitoches, Louisiana, October 28, 1944 The Tech Canines were the Demons ' next foes. And the Demons ' losing streak continued. Although the Demons outgained the Canines, 202 yards to 171, the Techmen finished up on the long end of a 21-7 score. Edgewine Barrish, team manager, the hardest working man on the squad.

Again they added the extra point. Tech scored their final touchdown in the third quarter It ' s not all fun. This goes on five days a week. after recovering a Demon fumble on the Demon twenty- eight. Four plays carried the ball to the Demon five. The Tech quarterback went over from this point on a fake reverse. For the third time, the extra point was kicked. The Demons ' lore score came early in the fourth quarter after Sibley intercepted a na-s in mid-field and returned it to the Tech forty-four. The Canines drew a fifteen-yard roughing penalty, placing the ball on the twenty-nine. Denver Loupe, freshman fullback, then engineered a drive and in three plays smashed through the Tech line to score. Mill Riehl converted the extra point. The bright spot for the Demons ' supporters was the hall carrying of Denver Loupe. A seventeen-year-old freshman. Loupe gained for the Demons after the other Northwestern backs had been stopped cold by a rugged Tech line. Loune threatened to b ' -eak loose for touchdowns several times, but the Tech secondary was successful in stopping him after he had made considerable yardage. Sweeney and Balthazar played their usual brilliant games in the line while Butler was consistently strong at defensive end for the Demons. Northwestern State, 0; Louisiana Tech, Ruston, Louisiana, November 1 1, 1944 The Demons went into their second game with the Caninse minus the services of four starting men and four- teen reserves, called away by the November 1st Navy trans- fer. The team was riddled to such an extent that the roster showed only three ends, three tackles, and three guards available for service. With this evident weakness in man- power the Demons were conceded to have no chance against a team which had beaten them by two touchdowns in a previous game. The Demons, however, showed more fight and defensive skill than any observers had believed present. The Demons started the game by giving the Canines a chance to score. After an exchange of punts that shoved the Demons back to their twenty-yard line, the Demons fumbled and the Techsters recovered on the twenty-two-yard line. Definitely in a bad position, a determined Demon defense, led b J. P. M ' Lady and Wilfred Cummings, Yen Purple! Yen JVhite! Yen Demons! Fight! Fight! Fight! Loupe, Hagman, Riehl rallied and held their opponents to no gain in four plays. This was the last scoring threat on Tech ' s part. The remainder of the first half was mainly a defensive struggle with a punting duel taking the place of any offensive maneuvers. The half ended with the ball in the Demons ' possession on Tech ' s forty-five-yard line, following Angel ' s interception of a Tech pass. During the third quarter, Buddy Kirkland, Demon Wing- back, threatened to break away several times. The down- field blocking was not good, however, and the Canine defense succeeded in stopping him after some excellent gains. The Demons also set up their one scoring chance in the third quarter. With the ball in mid-field, Angel punted out of bounds on the Tech nine-yard line. Tech attempted a run- ning play, but fumbled and Northwestern recovered on the Tech fourteen as the quarter ended. The Demons took the ball to the ten in three plays and on fourth down at- tempted a field goal. The pass from center was wide and the play failed. The fourth quarter was a repetition of the second, with neither team threatening to score. Both teams filled the air with desperation passes, but nothing like a touchdown developed. The game ended in a scoreless tie. Particularly outstanding for the Demons was the de- fensive work of the entire line, Cummings, Jones, Balthazar, Stone, Daniels, Sweeney, and Butler, all of whom played the entire game. M ' Lady was defensive standout in the backfield, while Kirkland was the main offensive threat. Northwestern State, 6; Southwestern, 7 Natchitoches, Louisiana, November 25, 1944 The season ' s finale found the Demons again meeting the S.L.I. Bulldogs, but this time on home grounds and before an enthusiastic Homecoming crowd. Heavy rains fell for two days preceding the game date. However, the sun finally made an appearance Saturday morning and the fans were dry during the game, although the playing field was still thoroughly soaked. Both teams were handicappe d somewhat by the slush, but the Bulldogs turned out to be the better mudders. The Demons kicked off to start the game, and the fun was on. Southwestern punted back soon and the Demons gained control of the ball. This was short-lived, however, as the Demons committed the first of eight fumbles. South- western, gaining the ball, proceeded to keep the Demons in trouble during the first quarter, finally scoring from the twenty-yard line on a pass from Colquitt to Chaney. Abra- ham converted the extra point and the Bulldogs held a seven point lead as the quarter ended. The Demons woke up in the second quarter, although bad ball-handling still held them in check.

Perry Angle and Denver Loupe had alternated the ball-carrying to pick up four consecutive first downs in this drive. Shortly before the half closed, the Demons nearly scored on a fifty-yard pass from Angle, intended for Murphy. The pass was a trifle long and missed Murphy ' s hands by inches as he crossed the goal line, entirely alone. The half ended with the score still 7-0, even though the Demons were outgaining their opponents consistently. The third quarter was a duplicate of the second. The Demons made another scoring march, but lost the ball on a fumble. On one play, a Demon halfback had a Bulldog flat pass intercepted with nothing between him and six points, but in his eagerness he dropped the ball. The Bulldogs ' offense was ineffective against a stubborn Northwestern defense, but the game still belonged to the Bulldogs. The Demons finally scored in the last quarter. With five minutes left in the game, Angle returned a punt to the Southwestern forty. On the next play, he dropped a pass to Murphy on the fifteen who ran to the eight before the Bulldog safety tackled him. The Demons then scored in three plays. Loupe picked up two yards on a spinner, and Angle got three more on an off-tackle smash. On the next play Loupe went over from the three for the touchdown. The crucial extra point was missed and the Bulldogs still led, 7-6. The game ended in this score, although the Demons nearly scored 19 4 4 Angle stopped after a gain. scored in the last minute on a pass. An alert South- western defense succeeded in stopping the threat, however. The game ended, Bulldogs, 7 ; Demons, 6. The final tabulations showed that the Demons had doubled their opponents in first downs, eight to four, and had almost doubled them in yardage. The Demons missed several chances to score, but inept ball-handling put them in so many holes that they were unable to recover. Southwestern took full advantage of one break, and the outcome of any game is still decided by the score. The band parades before the Homecoming tilt. 7 V f x T 7 ]l v a i c -- - M " 5 Ik Fin Ro».- Rogers, Brown, Willis, Shover, Dorcheus, Bozeman, Triplet, Murphy.

Lee Prather gave notice for the first try-outs. Only two things were certain: a schedule had been ar- ranged and there was no experienced material with which to work. A promising squad, however, quickly rounded into shape. Paced by six freshmen, the team started a schedule that included the top service and college quintets throughout the state. Al- together, the Demons played twenty-four games, winning thirteen of these while dropping eleven to amass a very respectable average. A feature of the season was the race for the USO-MAC Crown. The Demons finished second behind the powerful Camp Claiborne crew, the Demons were Southern A. A. U. champions dur- ing the first half of the league campaign, and the end of the second half found them in the third spot of the six-team league. Outside of the league, the Demons played dual games with L. S. U., Selman Field, and S. L. I., and also played a four- game series with Louisiana Tech. While a few of the games were lopsided in score, the majority were closely contested. Sev- eral of the games were decided on points made in the last seconds of play. An examination of the records shows that out of twenty-four games, This helped defeat Southwestern. The Tech guard went high, but not high enough to stop this shot. seven were decided by a difference of either two points or one point. The winning points in nearly all of these games were made as time ran out. The outstanding offensive threats during the season were three forwards, A. E. Brown, Ken- neth Murphy, and Bob Dorcheus, and a center, Bernard Waggoner. Standouts defensively were George Brownwell, Lamar Bozeman, James Willis, and " Babe " Triplet, all guards. Some excellent performances were also turned in by Lamar Gib- son and Dale Shover at Forward, John Norton at center, and Eugene Gesing and Donald Rogers at Guard. Bernard Waggoner led the scorers, fol- lowed closely by Murphy and Brown. Assistant Coach Monte Sheves, Head Coach H. Lee Prather. The tip-off against Tech.
