The Reserve Officers Training Corps at Northeast is designed to enable college students to prepare themselves for leadership in military service. This organization, under the leadership of competent U. S. Army personnel, offers young men greater opportunities for adjustment and to have confidence in themselves and their fellow Americans. Completion of a four-year COurse in the R.O .T.C makes the graduate eligibl e for a commission as 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Army Reserve.

DEVONE PAYNE

Coach Payne, at the end of his second year at Northeast State, has proved himself a very able coach of football. Payne has de­ veloped marked improvemen ts in the Indian squad in his sho rt time here, and, with these improvements in mind , the people of North ­ east and Northeast Lou isia na can look for­ ward to Indian victories for the forthcoming years.

Payne was, before his arrival on our cam­ pus , head footba ll coach at Louisiana Col­ lege. He a lso coached at Tallulah, N evi lle, Ouachita Parish, G ilbert and Winnsboro High Schools.

vs ... Northweste1'll . .. Spearheaded by a hard-charging forward wall, which included such Sherrod McKoin, Jim Berry, C. J. Melancon and Bob Windle, the Indians held the Demons while making 7 points on a pass from Wade to Driskill. The lead was short lived, however, back to score two T.

able men as "Red" Yocom scoreless in the first quarte as the Demons came rollin! a 27-7 victory.


vs ... Loui.riana Col/ege Wildeal.r ... After spotting the Wild足 cats 7 points in the first five minutes of play, the Redskins put on a war march that proved too much for the fig hting Cats. Led by the cool-headed quarterbacking of Reynolds, the run 足 ning of Powell, Leos, Wade and Franklin, the Northeast team ground out three touchdowns by the end of the third quarter, and at the final whistle the Indians were in possession of the ball only inches from another SCOre. The Preachers' final score arne in the third quarter to climax a 7s-yard sustained drive led by the running of Eugene Southern. The hard-charging Indian forward wall and th e superb punting of Wade were the main factors in keeping th e Wildcats from gloryland.

vs _ .. Loui.riana Tech Buf/dog.r ... The Indian squad traveled to Ruston determined to debunk the 50-point underdog rating of all pre-game predictions, and they did just that. Trailing by only 14 points, the Northeast gridders reaped tremendous ap足 plause of the entire gallery at the end of the half. They were met with the same ovation at the final whistle as they left the field with a moral victory in holding the Bulldogs to a 35-14 count. To _cite any outstanding performance is difficult as the team played its best game of the season. 85
