SIMS, ’13 (P)
Full-Back. “Bazc” was 011c of the best defensive players on the team. He always carries an extra hundred weight of nerve around with him just for fun. He keeps this said nerve for just such occasions as football games. “Bazc” only had one bad habit; he would break through the line and block-kicks of the opponents. He was elected captain of the '12 team and here's hoping he captains an ever victorious team next fall.
LUDKA, ’15 (P)
Half-Back. “Lud” is a new man for Peru and has won a warm place in the heart of every Peruvian. He came from Michigan to Peru; he has three more years to play for us. In advancing the ball lie was surpassed bv none. "Lud" never missed a night's practice and was a firm believer in training.
CHRISTENSEN, ’13 (P)
Guard. "Chris” was a steady man at his position and showed ability to play the game. He has one more year for Peru.
GIFFORD, ’i2 (P)
Center. A Senior, he will be missed by the girls as well as by his teammates. "Gifif" could always be depended upon when the rest of the fellows were off their feet. He broke through the opponents’ lines several times and tackled for a loss to the opposing team.

RALSTON, ’12 (P)
Half-Back. “Pcwee” was always among the first to hit the line from the back field. He carried the ball for good gains and tackled hard, considering his weight. “Pewec” is a Senior and we dislike to sec him go.
NIPPERT, ’12 (P)
Guard. “Nipp” was always there with the “pep” and was not afraid to give it to others. He with center and tackle on cither side was invincible. Nipp could be depended upon to stop everything that came his way.
Guard. “Ty” is a new man for Peru and will make a “whirlwind” for next year. Although a new man he was considered one of the strong players. The team next fall will find Ty one of its stars.

Salyli 10. (Ilutrkrr
Olivctt is one of those orthodoxal Presbyterian schools with a classical course which put out men who believe they have a mission in the world and fill it. It was from this school that Professor Thacker started out as coach with a sound mind and a sound body. He carries just such a character as the school gives to the student she sends out. He is a man with a purpose, a man who, though at times seems gruff, is working for the good of the team. He is a man among men; a man who has a deep and strong love for men, and above all, enjoys a fight, a hard fight, a straight-forward fight. His four years of active work in all athletics at Olivett not only gave him his service stripes, but gave him a good knowledge of all-round college athletics. He proved himself a tower of strength in the football team by being able for four years to hold down the position of full-back. His first knowledge of handling teams was gained while in college. As a Junior he coached a team for Mount Pleasant Normal, and as a Senior a team at the Michigan Agricultural College. After his graduation in 1909-10 he coached the football team of his home town, Traverse City, Michigan.
His work before and after he left college has been such as to bring him in touch with all classes of people, making him a man that understands human nature and knows how to handle men.
Peru is fortunate indeed in having so efficient a coach; may his services at Peru long continue, that the White and Blue may win many victories by his coaching.
