The Southwestern baseball season was an up and down one. Their final record was six wins and seven losses. To show their actual offensive power, the Bulldogs garnered 110 runs to their opponents 74. They knocked out 113 hits and sported a team batting average, excluding pitchers, of .303. Clyde Didier led the team at the plate with a lusty .348 followed by Allen Boudreaux and Bob Voitter. The most vicious attack was turned on Louisiana College as they were swamped 24 to 5 by the Bulldogs. Louisiana Tech maintained their jinx by defeating Coach Johnson's boys twice for the L. I. C. championship.

The pitchers, though lacking experience, turned in several nicely pitched games. "Lefty" Harrison pitched a 4-hitter in downing Tulane 7-1; Arceneaux defeated Camp Polk 6-1 on 6 hits; Bill Chiquelin set down Camp Polk again 8-1, allowing only 5 hits; and Arnoult fashioned a 6 hit ball gams against Lake Charles AAF.


George Arnoult, Nelson Arceneaux, Joe Babin, Tom Bartlett, Allen Boudreaux, Jim Brown, Clyde Didier. Ray Didler, Tom Harrison, Bill Chiquelin, Bob Voitier, Bob Suncouf.

Most of these lettermen will be returning next season, and the outlook is bright for a crack squad as Coach Johnson is adding tough teams of the Middle West and Southeastern Conference.
