7 losses. Several of the Tigers' opponents, how-
ever, were consistently among the top ten
teams of the state.
Beginning the season in fine shape, the Ti-
gers were victorious in four of their eight starts
before the year l953 ended, but 1964 began
with a bleak Ianuary as the Tigs lost seven
straight games. The only Peru victory in lanu-
ary came on the Slst against conference foe
Plymouth. Then after two more losses, the Ben-
gals scored a victory over Rochester, their last
win of the season.

football players during the Winter months to
keep them in good physical condition in the off-
season. Coach Robert Larson feels that the
