MEAD COACH ASSISTANT COACH These two teach the Gentlemen how to act and since 1927, when Homer Norton became head coach at Centenary, the Gents have piled up impressive scores and established several enviable records. In 1931 they lost only one game and for the past two years Centenary has not lost a single game. Next year we expect to hear great things from Texas A. & M., for Coach Norton is going there. Centenary loses a valuable man. Thanksgiving Game Will Be Real Test Of Wolf Strength Thanksgiving day will witness whether Loyola may claim the state championship of Louisiana or not. On that day Coach Homer Norton will bring his Centenary Gents undefeated and unscored on, to Loyola stadium where "Doc" Erskine's double wing back formation will provided the opposition. This affray will be one of the best Indicators of the Wolves' real aiblity and has been eagerly anticipated throughout the season both by the Pack and the entire student body. Loyola's rating is somewhat lower than tne Gents', but the Wolves expect to change all that and show that the Rice defeat was no indication of their real strength. The Centenary Gents will play for the last time under the leadership of Coach Homer Norton when they meet the Wolves, for Texas A. and M will claim him as head coach next season. In hie six years at the Shreveport college, Norton has piled up an enviable record. His team lost only one game in the last three years and that by a 7-6 score to the University of Texas, until they met the Razorbacks from Arkansas in the last game and couldn't get anything better than a tie. This year things have been looking up even more for the Gents. They haven't lost a single contest and their goal line has yet to be crossed. A singular feature of this year's games is that they have tied three straight contests. All three were against the stiffest of opposition, L. S. U., Texas U. and Texas Christian. The Wolfpack is undergoing strenuous training at present to toughen them for the Gentlemen from Shreveport and Erskine promises that his squad will be at the peak of condition for the Turkey Day battle. Senior Chemists To Visit Brewery Chemistry club seniors, In the first of a series of weekly tours in connection with their work, saw what they drink from the ground up when they visited the New Orleans purification plant on Eagle street, last week. S. G. F.

A special Freshman theme will be carried out in accordance with the announcement that this dance is for the special henor of the first year students.'Gym dances this year promise to be even more popular than they weie last year," said J. Skelly Wright, chairman of the dance committee, "and we expect a large crowd in the Gym Friday night. The ticket sale is well up to expectations and we can afford to follow our policy of not selling any tickets at the door the night of the dance." This policy of not selling tickets is in accord with a decision of the committee based on the necessity of keeping the dance a strictly student affair. Decorations, this week under the direction of Paul J. Cuesen, will carry out the freshman theme.

"The capitalist should be forced to run his industry at a loss if necessary, in order to keep men in employment". During the course of his talk, Father Burke drew a parallel between the NRA and the encyclical of Pope Leo XIII.

Quoth The Students "Never More" By Earl F. Wtgmann (With all due apologies to Mr. Pot) I. Each and every midnight dreary, all the boys are weak and weary, From the quaint and curious volumes they had seen just once before. Everyone is busy jamming; everyone is cramming, cramming - - Cramming on the night before. 11. Math and science drive them crazy, make their minds grow lazy, hazy, Every time they try to force themselves to learn a little more. You can hear them all declaring; everyone is busy swearing They will do it nevermore. 111. By and by they all are leery; eyes grow tired and then get weary, And the only sound that can be heard is a deep aiwl rumbling snore. In the morning when they're waking, they are quaking, they are shaking - - Dizzy from the night before. IV. Tests are done; and they breathe freely, but their minds are somewhat reely, And from each and every classroom comee a great, sonorous roar. They avow to quit their shamming; never have to do more cramming - - - Quoth the student "Nevermore!"
