Our college must not fail to do its full share in this noble and difficult task. That remarkable success has been attained in the past is clearly proven by the thousands of our graduates who have attained distinction, not alone in the field of education but in every other business and profession as well. I trust that I may be pardoned for the pride which I take in the fact that I have coached at this college in their undergraduate days, the Chief Justice of the Louisiana State Supreme Court, the Lieutenant Governor, the Dean of the College of Education at Louisiana State University and the Secretary for Student Work of the Southern Baptist Convention, to mention but a few of the many instances in which outstanding contributions in a wide variety of fields of service have been made by those who have gone this way. Their success should be to us at once an inspiration and a challenge. But as we prepare here for triumphant living in the future, let us endeavor here and now also to taste of living at its very best. Thus our college life may be not only a joyful adventure but also a valuable experiment in harmonious democratic living. And our college community can become an ideal laboratory for training in the arts of good citizenship. It is the province of the POTPOURRI staff to preserve for future years the many facets of our college life. This is a task worthy of the very best efforts which may be put forth in that behalf. For our college life too, has become more and more complex with the passing of the years. But we have unbounded confidence that the staff of 1952-1953 will more than measure up to the high standards set in former years. When I was a student the editors of the annual placed beside the picture of each senior, a brief comment somewhat in the nature of an evaluation of the contribution made to University life by that student. And I recall that each member of the senior class lost no time in turning to his picture to learn what comment his college career had evoked. Might I suggest that day by day each of us give serious thought as to what might be a deserved comment on our contribution to the life of our college, were that practice followed here. Let staff, faculty and students alike, strengthen the resolve to enlist all our time, talents, interest and efforts in making the record of our college life one of which we may be justly proud in the distant years when we view in retrospect the pages of the POTPOURRI for 1952-1953.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL LELAND LANGRIDGE President RONALD QUINN Vice-President WINNIE DOWDEN Coed Vice-President MARY SUE BELLEW MARY LOUISE MURPHY Secretary Treasurer As has been the primary objective of preceding student leaders, the Student Council sought to elevate school spirit among the Student Body. Methods used in promoting this were in the forms of pep-rallies, assemblies, and various other activities which sought student participa- tion. The Council saw need for mor activities which would not only involve N.S.C. students but would include high school students from the surrounding areas. The beginning of educational rallies was sought by this group of student leaders. What could be so important? Ooh. la la! Look at the book, Lowell! 30 At the Annual Homecoming Dance the Student Council presented to the N.S.C. Student Body and Alumni, Buddy Morrow and his Orchestra. This was the firsl time a name band has been engaged for this occasion. The usual duties of the Council were performed in an excellent manner. The group worked Seated: Quinn. Dowden. Langridge.

Again it was the cooperation of this group with student governing bodies of other state colleges that kept alive the Student Federation of Louisiana Colleges and Universites. This group worked constantly for the good of their fellow students and deserve a heart ' , congratulation for their efforts. 31 THE STUDENT SENATE The legislative branch of Student Government, which has as its goal to make Student Government more representative and conducive to student interests, had a very progressive year in this its fifth year of existence. The Senate besides carrying on its legislative program, has undertaken the sponsorship of the Student Film Program. This program, carried on by a com- mittee of Senate Members, endeavors to bring such films to the campus which have a educational as well as entertaining value. It was in the fall semester that the Senate received its charter for the operation of this film program after hav- Seated. left to right: Leach. Saltzman, Rose, Davis, Kyser, M. Tilleux.

HOUSTON DAVIS President HARDY ROSE Vice-President JOE SALTZMAX Secretary-Treasurer ing petitioned for it in the preceding semester. By all records it seems that the Senate has been very successful in the operation of this program. Another task which falls upon the shoulders of the Senate which is also out- side of its legislative duties is the compiling and editing of the Student Hand- book which is released bv the college as a quarterly, and issued to the incoming student of the college. The Senate was fortunate to have Dr. John S. Kyser as their faculty advisor since his assistance and advice proved to be very valuable in the successful carrying out of their program. John S. Kvser Everybody ' s dead on their feet. What happened to the Speaker? 33 HONOR COURT JAMES YERGLER Chief Justice Organized during the 1946-47 school year, the Student Honor Court is com- posed of seven justices nominated by the Dormitory Councils, selected by the Honor Court, and approved bv the advisory Board. Created as the disciplinary body of student government, the Honor court has the delegated power to act in the event of violations or infractions of the rules which govern the conduct of men students on the campus. With the purposes of building higher standards of citizenship on the campus among the men students and to equitably admin- ister justice through a student sponsored tribunal, the court, in itself, serves as a definite step forward in the trend to a more responsible student government.

ASSOCIATED WOMEN ' S COUNCIL CLAUDINE BOX President The A.W.S. Executive Council Dormitory representatives to the A.W.S. The A.W.S. Judicial Board The Associated Women ' s Students, an organization of all women students registered at the college, is governed by its officers known as the A.W.S. Council. The object of the council is to promote, in cooperation with the Dean of Women, the intellectual, social and spiritual welfare of the Women students, to develop in the students a deep sense of self-responsibility, to instill a spirit of cooperation and friend- ship; and to uphold high social and academic standards among Women students of the college. Highlights of A.W.S. activities are the annual " Christmas at Home, " the Backward Dance, and the annual Spring Convocation, at which time awards are made to outstanding women students. 35 PURPLE OFFICERS MARY CLARK President CLYDIE MAE BEACHAM Vice President BARBARA BREMER Secretanj BETH TRAMMEL Treasurer ■r- -■ . - - i IMMWgMMMMW 93: Left to right: Rumsey, Bremer, Marmande, Trichel, Winkler, Stephens.

Highlighting this year was their trip to Monterey. Miss Catherine Winters and Mrs. Eola P. Rooks co-sponsored this group. Planning for Monterey 37 THE CURRENT REPORTERS BETTIE CARTER MYRON FLEMING PATRICIA HANKINS SUSIE MATHIS MARJORIE REYNOLDS RITA SCHEXNIDER MERLE THOMAS ANN TORRANS MARGARET NELL WEBER PATSY WINKLER JACKIE THOMPSON Reporter A special attempt was made by the editors and staff members of the 1952-53 Current Sauce to make the college paper a true " friend of the students " — a paper which would give them as complete as possible a coverage of campus news as well as advice and support through editorial columns. The whole staff worked whole- heartedly and with tireless efforts, always keeping this goal in mind. Somehow, they feel that they accomplished what they were attempting to do, and that the students did enjoy their college weekly. Contrary to the situation which existed prior to the past year, the paper, under the editorship of Joe Saltzman, had a fairly large staff of hardworking, competent and conscientious people. John Spataro, sports editor and business manager of the Sauce, and Wanna Beth Sanders, associate editor, are to be especially commended for the many hours of hard work which they devoted to the Sauce. Without these people ' s help the editor could not possibly have managed. Of course, the year was not altogether perfect. As usual, the staff had its ups and downs. There were always such worries as late cuts and mad scrambles due to shortage of copy, but these things were soon accepted as being unavoidable. The year brought enjoyment as well as work for the staff. There were the annual dance sponsored by the Current Sauce, a banquet and parties sponsored by Alpha Phi Epsilon, local journalism fraternity, and field trips to Shreveport. All of these events served as incentives to work with pride on the Current Sauce. 38 SAUCE M » II BILLY BAKER Sports Reporter We put out a good paper last week HOUSTON DAVIS Editor LUCIAN SPATARO Business Manager Left to right: Barbara Cheek, Lora Faye Kemper, Gerald Tilleux, Velma Reeves, John Spa- taro.

Journeying to Nashville, Tennessee, as the guests of Benson Printing Company, were the editor, associate editor and business manager. A budget was drawn up, a time schedule made and at the end of the week, the layout of the 1953 Potpoukki with the exception of the opening section was complete. The open- ing section had to wait until a check could be made on the available photograph it- material from the State Department of Commerce and Industry. After much correspondence during the summer months, the photographic copy was obtained and forwarded to Benson so that the layout of the opening section could be drawn up making the first step toward the 1953 Potpourri complete. Came September and the actual work began. Class pictures were taken and proofs were shown. When the prints were returned there was a mad scramble to complete the class and organizations sections before the Christmas holidays so that we could beat the deadline on Benson ' s cash award offer for the completion of fifty pages of manuscript copy. We made this minimum requirement plus a few pages and received a cash award of eleven dollars. After the Christmas holidavs work went on smoothly until January when we lost our associate editor, Marie Tilleux. who graduated. This loss, however, proved to be only physical since Marie, as an alumna, continued to help in the editing of the yearbook through her being employed by the Shreveport Engraving Company. By the last of February all of the photographic copy was in the hands of the engravers and in mid-March the first shipment of cuts was made to Benson and the final shipment date was set to be the last of March. This left one month for the pub- lishing of the book. The staff worked hard and when the work was finished only a few faces that were present when the work began were absent at its completion. The goal of the staff was the completion of the 1953 Potpourri in time for an early delivery to the students. And so here it is — the finished product, right off the assembly line composed of the editor, staff, Guillet Studio, the Shreveport Engrav- ing Company and Benson Printing Company. 41 ' DWIGHT DAVIS Heralding the Christmas Season Sporting new uniforms, the Northwestern State Band under the direction of Dwight Davis added color and real Demon spirit wherever they went by their maneuvers on the field and their outstanding bursts of music to spur the cheering during the game. At the end of the football season the marching band converts and becomes the concert band. Their spring concert in the Fine Arts Auditorium and their open air concerts of summer days are truly musical highlights of the year. THE BAND OF The Alma Mater N.S.C.

" JOSEPH CARLUCCI She plays a Grand Piano An overgrown Cello THE CHOIR DONALD GLATTLY Director The College Singers, under the direction of Mr. Donald Glat- tly is an organization of singers representing all the schools in the college. It is not a group of music majors, but people who like to sing. The " Singers " have gained much recognition during the past vear for their fine performances. They have made a number of appearances here on our campus, as well as other places within the state. The annual presentation of the Messiah is one of the out- standing activities of the Singers. It is attended each year by a number of students and adults from this and surrounding areas. The many scheduled performances of the group has brought them to the attention of the Louisiana Elks, who have asked them to represent them at their annual convention to be held in St. Louis this summer. This will be the groups second time to attend the National E.ks Convention. We congratulate the Singers and Mr. Glattly for the fine work they have done in representing our school throughout the state and wish them the best of luck for a successful trip to St. Louis. 46 The annual presentation of the Messiah MEMBERS Carolyn Adams Gervais Aldredge Adrienne Averitt John Batten John Burns Max Burns Peggy Callia Sam Callia Dean Clark Ethelyn Cloutier Mary Ann Cronin Alvin De Blieux S.

Dr. West has certainly proved that she is worthy of all the praise that has been given her. She began her first year here with a comedv " the Royal Family. " The comedy satirized the Barrymore family and every one enjoyed this change from many of the previous productions. A fantasy was also presented to a select audience. " The Wonder Hat " with a cast of acclaimed troupers was a treat to all who saw it. The winter production, " Night Must Fall. " a murder thriller ran for three nights. Contrary to popu lar customs the play was presented in the Little Theatre because of the intimacy of the setting and plot. Yes, as the curtain draws down on this, another successful season for the drama department, the faculty and student body are eagerly awaiting the notices of a new production. Congratulations and orchids are in store for the actors, stage hands and Dr. West for their splendid year. The encore promises to be even more enjoyable and when the curtain rings up next fall, everyone will anticipate and receive another wonderful production. MARY HENDERSON Soprano ARTIST SERIES The Northwestern Artist Series com- mittee in conjunction with the Natchi- toches Concert Association has succeeded in bring " to the campus a varied and enter- taining program of well known artists. In selecting the program for the year, the committee seeks to arrange a balanced and varied program which will have wide ap- peal and interest among the students. Through the Artist Series program stu- dents are given the opportunity to see and hear well known artists, thus supplement- ing their college experience culturally.

The unit has steadily grown in size and is now composed of five bal teries. This year, under the command of Cadet Lt. Col. David Carson and the guiding hands of Lt. Col. Bowman and his capable stafT, the battalion has accomplished a great deal in preparing men for their jobs in the future, both as citizens and soldiers. O DAVID CARSON Cadet Lt. Colonel R. O. T. C.

A drab fall-winter season touched off by a lone Northwestern victory of one-touchdown caliber and a knotted ball game down Louisiana College way . . . this was foot- ball history in a nutshell for ' 52- ' 53 look- ing from the Demon side of the field. Punctuated periodically with a splash of brilliant play and rekindled spirit, the year ' s gridiron days wove together into a pattern of dull fabric unbecoming the fiery, spirited torso of Old Man Demon. The Demon gridders were seemingly plagued with unprecedented ability to sustain injuries consistently, a good case of " don ' t cares " and a constant barrage 158 fvf .r.f f f f r l 71 fefiF I 7S ia46i,6i ss ' 3, ' ,3U (74, J 3% .

However, the more tolerant or optimistic of the season ' s listless fans believed that it was " just the breaks " and that Ladv Luck just deserted the Demons at crucial moments. At any rate, the " breaks " came constantly and they were always against Northwestern and there were certainly a lot of " crucial " moments to keep Lady Luck on the move. Out of the disappointing pictures of football this year emerged one signifi- cant fact, however. And it may be a good sign. Northwestern bested the record of the year before when the Demons managed to grab a single victory. During 1952. the Demons went beyond this and chalked up some kind of new record. They not only won one game, but tied one. Welcome, Lady Luck! SEASON AT N. S.

The Demons outpointed Louisiana College in all the statistic columns except passing and racked up 13 first downs to the Wildcats 8. Four times the Demons drove deep into Wildcat territory only to be stopped by a stubborn goal line stand by the hustling Louisiana College team. The first Demon drive came late in the first period but the 69 yard march was halted by a fumble on the Wildcat ' s 19.

The Dem- on defenders then held the Wildcats and they were forced to punt from deep in their own territory. Raymond McFadden then returned the punt to the Wildcat 34 and again the Demons were threatening. George Perkins and Leon Fuller combined forces to move the ball down to the five where the Demons decided to try the aerial route into T.D. land. M.D. Ray while attempting to pass was set back twice and when the ball went over on downs it was resting on the 15. Louisiana College ' s only threat came late in the final period after they had recovered a Demon fumble on the 35. The Wildcats took to the air and moved to the 15, but an interception by " Red " Smith ended this drive as the final whistle sounded. Not this time STATE FAIR GAME Louisiana Tech scored in each of the first three periods to roll to a convincing 22-0 victory over the hapless Demons in the annual Slate Fair Clash in Shreveport. The Demons controlled the play most of the second period with M. D. Ray ' s passes hitting their mark for large chunks of yardage. How- ever Ray was hit hard attempting to pass from the 20 and fumbled with Tech pouncing on the pigskin on the 13. Tech wasted no time in tak- ing advantage of this miscue. James Oliver was the Bulldog that found the scoring path this tim? and the Techsters held a 15-0 lead at the half time. Another fumble in the third period gave Tech another score.

LAMAR AND After downing Central Oklahoma, NSC waded into hot water and was never able to completely recover from the burns. The Demons traveled to Beaumont, Texas where they were taken in by a speedy Lamar Tech eleven by a 35-12 margin. The Texans were lead by scat back Sammy Car- pender who accounted for four of the Cardinals five TD ' s on runs of 1, 7, and 4 yards and a 10 yard aerial to towering end Bob Frederick. The Purple and White squad showed much improve- ment over their first showing, but lacked the speed and offensive spark that was furnished to the Lamar team by their four top notch passers who gained 153 yards through the air to the Demons 66, by the aerial route. NSC lead the Beaumonters in the first down department 16 to 14 and in the yards gained rushing 176 yards to 170 for the Cardinals. The Demons scored their first tally in the second stanza when " Red " Smith climaxed a sustained drive that began on the Demon 46 yard line with a two yard plunge to " TD land. " Lamar made the score 20-6 at the half, however, as they scored their third TD just before the intermission. Northwestern again broke into the scoring column early in the fourth quarter when George Perkins sweeped around end for 20 yards and a score. This game pitted two completely different offenses: The Demons " T " formation, that kept constantly hit- ting away for short 3 to 4 yard gains and the Lamar single wing that would be stopped for three to five plays, only to break away for 20- or 40 yards when they did find an opening.

THE VICTORS The McNeese Cowboys downed the Demons in NSC ' s first con- ference game by a convincing score of 32-13. Although NSC lead in first downs in this game they lacked the fine break away runners that McNeese boasted. Jules Derouen, McNeese ' s all-conference back, started the Cowboy attack off early in the opening stanza with a 42-yard dash through the entire Demon team. After this NSC played the visitors on even terms the remainder of the first quarter, but the Cowboys were not to be corraled for long and Dickie Breaux broke lose swivel hipped his way for the second Poke score early in the second quarter. Jesse Castete scored from the two yard marker just before int ermission to give the McNeese crew a 19-0 half time lead. It took the Cowboys almost a quarter before they could muster The Demons play leap-frog . . . another score but it was Derouen again that found pay dirt late in the third period to move the visitors further ahead of the hapless Demons. Early in the final period Val Sweeney hit Dickie Breaux with a 25 yard pass in the end zone and ended the Cowboys ' scoring for the night. The Demons came to life late in the final period and drove 72 yards for their first score. The drive was lead by Fuller, Bice, and McFaddin and was ended when Leon Fuller plunged over for the two. The Demons kicked off and held the Pokes for three downs on the ten. Ted Simon then blocked the attempted punt and Darrel Wiggins scooped the ball out of the air and scored from the two. " Red " Smith converted and the score ended 32-13. while the Cowbovs make the touchdowns. DEMONS VS. SOUTHERNERS from a yard away to climax a 60 yard second quarter push. Both of these scores were made on a Southern eleven which was knocked off its feet from the opening play and seemed too surprised to muster any sort of defense against the Demon horde. Smith scampered through the bulky Rebel team without a hand being laid upon him. The offensive drive leading to Fuller ' s touchdown was a series of sharp, quick opening plays which made the Southerners look like little boys caught stealing cookies from the cookie jar. Out of bounds Southern must have scored again. Having tasted defeat only once this sea- son, the Mississippi Southerners invaded Nor thwestern to meet the Demons who iron- ically enough had won only one game dur- ing the season. On the night of the game, the crowd in Demon Stadium was smaller than usual be- cause the Student Body during the preced- ing week had risen in protest of Coach " Rags " Turpin and his coaching methods and the Demon losing record. It was generally con- ceded that the Demons would be mauled by the high stepping Southerners. As the game got underway the underdog Demons, possibly spurred by the recent crit- icism of their coaching staff, threw the crowd into bedlam by scoring two touchdowns and an extra point before the heavily favored visitors could scratch the scoreboard. Scoring touchdowns for the Demons were Roland Smith with a 70 yard comeback from a South- ern punt and Leon Fuller who bulled over The Freshman star Wait till I get my hands on you The Southerners however roared back and at the half time the score stood deadlocked 13-13. The long rest didn ' t quite restore the Demons starch and the Southerners steadily movd in front after the third period began. The visitors went ahead for the first time after a 42 yard drive with Rouchon charging over from the six. Southern ' s fourth score also in the third quarter, came after an 82 yard shove. This one paid off on Jarrel ' s 30 yard strike to Elmo Lang. Southern finished off its night ' s work with two fourth quarter tallies — one on Jarrel ' s 3 yard pitch to Pepper, the other on Ed Kaiser ' s five yard sweep with only 40 seconds left. Final score N.S.C. — 13; Mississippi Southern — 39. JACK SIMPSON Tackle DARRELL WIGGINS Tackle E. L. CHRISTIAN Guard STANLEY KNOTTS Guard You ' twisting my leg INDIANS . . . The Noii-hwestern Demons with stepped enthusiasm after their brilliant stand against Mississippi Southern next journeyed to Mon- roe to play the Northeast Louisi- ana State College Indians in a non- conference tilt. The Demons were a slight fa- vorite in this game. The game pro- vided a brother duel that pitted N.S.C. ' s quarterback, M. D. Ray against Northeast ' s pivot man, Lloyd Ray. The Demons enjoyed a 13-7 edge at the half on the strength of touch- downs by M. D. Ray and Roland Smith, M. D. Ray scored from one yard out in the first period and Smith got his tally on a 17 yard run in the second quarter.

Hit ' em low and hit ' em high Southeastern Louisiana College Green and Gold eleven took a 19-0 victory over a fighting but outclassed Demon team. The victory was the fourth Lion win over the Demon ' s in as many seasons and gave the Lions a Golf States Conference mark of two vic- tories and one tie.

This game concluded the 1952 Demon football season should prove themselves to be a winning team next year. with an unimpressive record of one win. one tie and seven losses. With new talent, returning experienced lettermen and the elimination of the two platoon system, the Demons JACK BICE Back BILL LITTLE Tackle S. N. BOURGEOIS Back ROLAND SMITH Back BASKETBALL SEASON Perched upon an admirable record, the Demons of North- western State College had its greatest season in the three years that Coach " Red " Thomas has been tutoring the bas- ketballers. Although the Purple and White hold a record of 22 wins against 10 defeats, the Demons could have risen to even greater heights had they not slumped toward the closing half of their stiff schedule. As every product of Northwestern is, this team was built around speed on the fast break with constant running. The accent was on scoring rather than defensive feats. Every victory garnered by the Northwestern crew was a result of team play. There was no individual star to command the laurels of the entire team. Sometimes several ball-hawks would hit consistently but seldom on outstandingly. If the team work was good, then the result would be glory; if the team-work faltered or failed to click then the Demons would go down in defeat. Every squad member was an intricate part to the team. The record, an enviable one indeed, was racked up mostly against independent teams. As usual, the Demons did not make a big showing in the GSC. However, they were able to concentrate enough effort to beat every team in the con- ference at least once. The Purple and White captured a tie for third place with a 7-5 won and loss record. Against team not in the GSC, the Demons knocked off a 15-5 mark, a considerable better conquest than the conference play. Coach Thomas was working with a squad composed mostly of sophomore lettermen. The only face missing from last season ' s quintet was Artie Ranew, a lanky forward who graduated. There was only one senior in the Purple and White camp. Jim Yergler, a hold-over guard from the days of H. L. Prather, acted as captain in his final year as a Demon. The starting line-up didn ' t belong to any special player, it was a sifted crew which ran onto the court each game. A hungry Demon five, anxious to blaze into competition, ran onto the court at Beaumont, Texas, November 29, to tangle with Lamar Tech. The Techsters threw up a blockage and edged the Demons 64-60. However, the Purple and White avenged that earlier defeat three days later by stomping the Texas team on the Demon home court, 61-48. The Natchitoches boys paced by newcomer George McConathy and Ken Shaw made sure their first loss was not to be repeated on home grounds. They captured an early lead and did not stop in- creasing it until the tilt was secured. A rampaging Demon basketball quintet led by George Davis, racked the nets with uncanny consistency in the second home contest of the season and humbled a Northeast crew, 91-51. The Thomas men then journeyed to Magnolia, Ark. where Seated: George. Walker, Lilley. Hildebiand. Davis, Collinsworth, Booras, Christmas. Standing: Barker, Collins. Enloe, McConathy, Shaw, Thomas.

Shaw, the Demon towering pivot man flashed his fancy hook shot and notched enough one hand push shots to take scoring honors for the night. The next two games were a trek into Texas and a suc- cessful one at that. In College Station, Texas, the Northwestern State College basketeers battled a highly touted Texas A M squad from behind for three quarters but surged out in front in the fourth period to stun the home town rooters and gain a major upset of the early season. Waple Lilley and Sammy Booras were the heros of the brilliant fourth period, as they took charge and sent the Demons to victory. Appearing in Huntsville, Texas, the next night, the Purple and White toyed with Sam Houston State for three quarters, then got down to business in the fourth and by the end of the contest had com- pletely routed them 85-69. Returning home, the Demons cagers breezed through a Southern State defense for a quarter and a half but gradually slowed down their scoring punch and almost faltered before the Muleriders. It was a frantic Demon quintet which clung to its slim lead of three points in the fourth period and as a result tucked away another victory, 67-64. Riding the crest of a steadily growing winning streak, a high flying Northwestern five, although rather rusty for two quarters, managed to pull Coach Thomas and his boys Who blocked who Pardon me 175 out of a 34-34 tie with E. New Mexico University at the half- time, and thus notch their seventh consecutive win. George Davis sparked a third quarter Demon outburst by hitting for 15 of the Purple and White ' s 29 points. Sam Houston State was the next opponent on the Demon schedule. And they were the next means of victory for the Natchitoches boys. The Purple and White were never pressed in this contest. Coach Thomas cleared the bench in the latter half, while ten of the twelve Demons broke into the scoring column. The Sam Houston game was typical of the Demon brand of playing. They lacked the finesse of a polished ball club, but their hustle left nothing else to be desired. It had marked their play thus far through the season. From the opening whistle, they were on the run, and the final bell found them still going strong. This fine spirt dropped short in the GSC tournament, which took place on the Centenary College cam- pus during the Christmas holidays. Too long a Christmas vacation and the ailments of Ken Shaw and George McCona- thy, aided in the cause of a dismal showing against South- western in the opening round of the tourney. The Demons were knocked out of top ring bracket by falling 70-59. How- ever, Northwestern did bob McNeese 66-48. in a drive toward the consolation crown. The Demons eased into fifth spot by edging Northeast 53-51 in the finals of the consolation round. Muriel Walker, helped the locals cushion their lead with a 17 point contribution. With a brief 11 day rest to strengthen themselves from the energy sapping midterm examinations, the Northwestern squad squeaked out a thriller from Mississippi Southern 77- J1M YERGLER Guard SAMMY BOORAS Guard The Demons were on the ball this night The Demons at their best KEN SHAW Center GEORGE DAVIS Forward GEORGE McCONATHY Forward 75.

But Davis and Walker to regain the lead and take the win. The Demons chalked up their thirteenth victory when they dumped the touring Mexico All-Stars 79-61 in a clumsy basketball game. The winners got off to a slow start specializing in bad passes and shots. After scraping out a bare 16-14 lead at the first period, the Demons improved slightly as the game progressed. However, the vic- tory followed the Mexican pattern of play and the entire game resembled a high school scrimmage. Most of the field goals made by both teams came as a result of hap-hazard free-lance type of play. Northwestern Demons had to scrap every inch of the way to stand off the Camp Polk Armadillos and beat them by 57- 52 score. Not until the final two minutes did the men of " Red v Thomas clinch their hard-won victory. Earlier the soldiers had pulled to within one point of Northwestern in the second period within two points in the fourth. Once again it was a team win, with Shaw high with 10 points. Five days later, the Purple and White crushed the Louisiana College Wildcats by a 66-46 talley. The difference between the teams was made in the second quarter. Northwestern hit for 15 points while the Wildcats got only 8. La. College was flat throughout the last half and the Demons continued a steady stream of points while Coach Thomas shuttled sub- stitutes into the fracas. The Demons took the measures of the Southeastern Lions while racking up their 16th win in 19 starts. The rampaging Thomas lads took an early lead and held it throughout the game. Coach Luther Marlar ' s Lions came to within five points at ti mes but really never threatened. The victory marked the second Gulf States Conference win for NSC five. Ken Shaw paced the Demons with 23 points. Then the slump came that rocked the Northwestern crew, and started them on an eight game spree of sluggish playing. The Centenary Gentlemen invaded the campus and hit for 45.9 per cent of their field goals from the floor to blaze pass a hapless Demon quintet which hit for a mere 27.6 total. Big Jim Thomas was easily Northwestern ' s stnadout in this 73-59 loss. Aside from bucketing 16 points for the best Demon effort, it was his back-board work and defensive play after the sec- Holding! tftfVI ' i « ife 6.

The lanky forward connected on half of his 12 tries at the basket. Southwestern turned the Demons over onto their second loss by rolling unhampered to a 73-54 GSC win. The Bulldogs grabbed a 17-12 first quarter lead and extending it to 41-19, coasted the rest of the way. And that was the second setback. A still droggy Demon basketball quintet, trying to recover from a two game set back, appeared rather sore and rusty in numerous spots but managed to cling to a 6 point lead and cake the Wildcats of La. College. They continued this frantic pace against the Southeastern Lions but still flopped, 69-59. Unlike the Lions who played a consistently good ball game, the Demons never showed any spark. They hit only 23 per cent of their shots from the floor. The traditional rivals, La. Tech were the next club to bounce the Demons around. A 70-62 win for the Ruston lads provide the first victory gained by a Tech crew in three years. The Purple and White fought doggishly to surge back into the win column, and almost did so when they muzzled the Bulldogs of Louisiana Tech, for two quarters, but faltered in the final frame. Thus, the fourth defeat in five years. A Demon basketball five, finally showed strong signs of shrugging off the losing ways that have plagued them in the last seven contests and busted the Cowboys of McNeese 77-64. Bill Collinsworth paced the Purple and White with his fancy floor-work and his high point total of 20 points. The victory gave the Demons an over-all record of 18 wins against 7 losses. Northwestern jumped back at the Southwestern Bulldogs with pitch-forks pointed and jabbed them to make up for two earlier defeats at the Hammond lads hands. This brief two game win jot was cooled off when the Spring Hill Badgers boomed into town. Using deadly long shots, the Badgers re- sounded in the fourth period with constant tally to overcome a Demon lead and take the contest. A road trip into the states of Mississippi and Alabama proved to be a good compromise for the Demons. Mississippi Southern went into an 8 minute freeze, and then racked up Coming around Flying feet BASKETBALL a 55-50 victory, to avenge an preceding Demon upset. The Demons stood beneath the bucket all the time talking with one another and the opponents. Southern ' s two guards Jack Gallagher and Jeep Clark, bounced the ball back and forth laughing and joking with the officials, coaches, and opponents. The next night in Mobile, Alabama, the Demons withstood a late rush by Spring Hill and went on to whip the Badgers 76-72. Shaw and Collinsworth topped the Demon scorers with 23 and 21 points respectively. Northwestern ' s crowning glory resulted from the last two regularly scheduled games. Two brilliant victories over Louisi- ana Tech and Centenary College. With revenge in their eyes and a fiery pitchfork in their hands, the Demons of North- western State College gigged the Bulldogs of Louisiana Tech 80-78. in the Demon gymnasium. It was the Purple and White 21st conquest against 9 defeats. Bill Collinworth whose exploits as a fancy ball-handler have been coming to the fore pocketed scoring honors for the night by hitting for 8 field goals and 15 out of 16 attempted free throws. He constantly kept the Demons out in front by the slim margin that was so earnestly needed. In the other win of marked distinction, Northwestern flogged the Centenary Gentlemen, 72-64. It was an upset, but the Demon never were contested for the lead. The Demon had built up a 10-0 margin before the Gents could even tip their hats and bucket one point. Bill Collinsworth, once again lead the scoring with 23 points. The victory was one that lifted the spirit of the student body to unexpectable heights. Had the regular scheduled game been the end of the season, the climax would have been great, but as it was the Demons went to the State NAIA tournament and there they bowed out of the basketball picture, by falling before the Gents of Centenary 65-59.

J f r t If J f I Men of Brawn This year ' s Gymnastic team has continued in the light of previous squads. The SAAU champions who have captured the crown for the past three years are dubbed to repeat this feat again this season. GYMNASTICS Thus far, in exhibition season, the Demon gvm- nasts have earned the title, " The Traveling Salesman of N.S.C., " bv successfully completing a tour into all sections of Louisiana. They performed shows at Bas- trop, Lecompte, Bolton, Lake Charles, Vinton, and filled in a special engagement at the LEA Program in New Orleans. A Climax to this exhibition season was the " Home Show " which seated a record breaking crowd. Coach John Piscopo ' s show-men have played before over 6,000 spectators on this tour, and they did without causing the college any expenses. As the Potpourri goes to press, the gymnasts are preparing to defend their SAAU crown. They will sponsor the SAAU Gymnastic Championship which will be held on the N.S.C. campus, April 16, 1953. Plans are being made to attend the Southwest AAU meet in Fort Worth and a Triangular Meet featuring Dallas Athletic Club, University of Texas, and North- western State College is in the process of birth. The prospects of this year ' s team are very high, there is indeed quality in the team, and there is prestige in N.S.C. ' s " G " men of 1953. Seated: Duke, Hyams, Velez. Sanders.

Already twelve records have fallen in the Demon Natatorium as the Purple and White crew has completed three-fourths of its schedule. The competition has been strong, yet the tankmen have never failed to come up with a top-notch performance. There are two meets remaining on the Northwestern schedule, one of which the Demons are sure to win, and the other, the chances are very high for victory. Coach John Piscopo ' s mermen have conquered Southern Meth- odist University and Texas A M, two teams that placed high in the Southwest Conference Relays at Waco, Texas. The only loss in dual meets this year came at the hands of Florida State University, a high ranked team national- ly and one of the best crews of the South. The Purple and White entered the SEAAU meet held in Atlanta, Georgia and placed four th in a field of approximately 15, which represented the cream of the Southern crop of swimmers. The success of the swimming squad, under Piscopo, has steadily increased. He can well be proud of his 1953 Demons for their winning qualities he has instilled in them. And Northwestern may well measure their worth by their fine showmanship. MYRON LOCKEY Captain First row: Henry Walton. Mike Torrans, Tony Koonce. Tommy Kehoe, Horace Humble.

Early season practices were hampered greatly by the February and March rains. Coach Lorane Brittain had only two returning lettermen to work with, Bill Stan- berry and Paul Ryder. These two, plus squad-men Pat Kelly, C. L. Hataway, and Jack Sibley, form the Purple and White representatives in the Golf field. While the team doesn ' t aspire to the heights of pros, they do how- ever hope to look to the future since the team is still young. C. L. HATAWAY Number one man.
