After the splendid showing made by the team away from home all the Peruvians were anxious to see the team in action at home.
On October thirteenth. Tarkio journeyed to Peru with the intention of spoiling our record and stopping our upward flight. Tarkio had a somewhat patched up team but they fought gamely until the sound of the final whistle was heard. With all this however they found themselves unable to hold the speedy Peruvians.
It was in this game that “Tige” showed his wonderful ability in backing up the line. Not having fully recovered from injuries received in the Grand Island game. Schneider our trusty center was replaced by W. Kmmert who showed good form in his blocking .and tackling.
Other line men who were on the job during this fray were “Jack” Allsnian, Spacht, and Bell.
“Marty” Craig got one drop kick from the thirty-three yard line and “Tubby" and “Gunboat" Smith each scored touchdowns.
Score—Tarkio 0 Peru 17.
On October 20th, we received a visit from our old friends at Crete, and they came prepared to trounce the Peru Team in a thorough manner. As has been a time worn custom, the game was played on a wet and slippery field. Phis fact is probably the only reason why the score is comparatively small.
Peru carried the ball within striking distance several times during the game, but lost on a fumble or were unable to advance because of the slippery field. Doane endangered the Peru goal only once during the entire game; and then only for a moment, as we were able to punt out and hold for downs.

men in this move were “Vic” Jones and “Charley” Spacht and it you will let your memory rove you can recall that they were always on the job. Schneider, “Red" Kmmcrt and “Tubby” Hell, all new men made a permanent place tor themselves on the team and in the hearts of the students. We can rightly say that the credit of the lew score should be given to the “scrappy” Peru lineman.
Score—Wesleyan 0 Peru 0.
Peru’s second game was played October 6th at Grand Island. Having left Peru Oct. 5th and after a good night’s rest at (irand Island the team was in the very best possible condition.
In this game great improvement was shown in the ability of the line to hold on the defensive and to charge together on the offensive. The backfield also displayed a marked improvement over the previous game. “Red” Kmmcrt and “Gunboat” Smith made consistent gains thru the Grand Island line while Captain Haney demonstrated his ability to punt and tackle.
Of the linemen we would say that this was “Vic’s” greatest defensive game of the year and is probably the one that won him his place on the all-state eleven.
Forward passes were used frequently and to good advantage by both of the teams.
It was in this game that “Marty” Craig got his first drop kick of the season and also scored the first touchdown for Peru. he scoring was in a large measure due to the passing and punting of Captain “ I ige”.
It was a clean fast game and Coach Johnson was well pleased by the showing of the Peru team.
The value of teamwork and team spirit could easily be seen.
Score- (irand Island 7 Peru 9.

There was no scoring on either side until the third quarter, and then "Marty Craig staged a drop kick, which was the only points made. l oo much credit cannot he given to the linemen tor their lighting, and to the back fie Id in the manner in which they hacked up their team mates. Schneider and " ic” Jones were both out of the game, but their places were ably filled by Wilbur, and "Red" I'.mmert.
The backfield men on both teams were seriously handicapped, and were practically unable to show their real ability.
Speaking in general it was a game of endurance, and an opportunity to develop originality in foot-ball tactics.
Score—Doane 0 Peru 3
On October 27th. the so-far victorious Peru team went down to its only defeat of the season.
This game was probably one of the hardest fought contests that was played between the secondary colleges of the state, this season. Peruvians were grieved to see the hopes for a championship shattered, hut they were pleased to know that the Peru Team fought gamely to the last whistle.
The first quarter was scoreless, with Peru on the defensive; but in the second, by a series of wide end runs and line plunges, followed by a long forward pass, the York -amors scored the first touchdown. They scored another soon after by returning a punt.
The third quarter saw another touchdown added to the list, but in the last period the Peru Team rallied, and advanced to within fifteen yards of the York goal, before the whistle blew.
