y br yy ar7 IPS W. KMMKKT Guard HOWAKI) SMITH Tnokli TALBOT HINT Guard •DICK" MKISSNKH Guard Jones and Hane were the defenders, and Smith carried the ball in good form, but there were really no “stars”; every man gave the best that was in him, and fought to the last ditch. Aside from all these facts, they played “clean”, and when you couple these qualities together and distribute them among a team of loyal Peru players, you will easily see that it is no disgrace to lose. Score—York 20 Peru 0. The Bellevue game marked the highest efficiency obtained in the back lie Id during the season. They did not have a great amount of punch, hut they worked smoothly and got away fast. The entire team displayed marked improvement in teamwork. Phe ends and tackles were in the play on defense as well as offense, and Bellevue was unable to develop any play more complicated than a straight line plunge, or a short end run. “Red” Kmmert, Caldwell, Smith. Craig, and Haney carried the hall to good advantage; and in the latter part of the game Sandberg hit the holes in a very creditable manner. “Tige”, the old stand-by, was at his same position, and backed up the line in a way that was fully appreciated by our line men. I his game was attended by a great number of the loyal Peruvians who seemed to get a great deal of satisfaction from being able to cheer for the “Old Nebraska Normai" once more. On November 17th, the Omaha University team came to Peru and furnished the Normalites a good practice game in preparation for the Kearney game. iDi7

“CIirCK" SPACHT Tackle "JACK" AI.I.SMAN Cunrtl TCBBY” BKU. Tackle •MKW" SCHNKIDKIt Centre 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.

Z r ? y°6 ruv ar7 IVru had a decided advantage in speed, experience, and general knowledge of foot-ball tactics. The Blue and White goal was in danger at no time during the entire game, as the Red and Black team were never nearer than thirty yards of scoring. I ouchdowns followed each other in rapid succession, and every one was overjoyed to ce “ ic" gallop over the white line for his first touchdown of the season. ‘‘Red” Kmmert also made some good runs and Captain “Tige” plowed thru the line for gains, ranging from five to fifty yards. In the last part of the game Long and Kidd, two of the reserves, were sent in to relieve the Varsity men, and also to give them some experience. Men such as these must make up the team next year, and they should he given every opportunity to develop into good clean players. Score—Peru 48 Omaha I ni. 0. On November 24th. the Peru team and the Normal Band engaged in battle with the similar organizations of Kearney. We should also mention the “rooters” and staunch supporters of the team. 1'his was the one big game of the year, and the one to which we had been looking forward since the season opened. We received a hearty welcome from the Kearney delegation when we alighted from our special coach; and this courteous treatment will always be cherished remembrances of the 1'eam and Band. Of the game, we need not tell a great deal, since it is for the most part ancient history. “Gunboat” Smith was the individual star, and scored two of the touchdowns ( n long runs. "Doc" Owens started the game, and he worked hard, as he always does. He was relieved by “Red” Kmmert, who showed a great ileal of speed. “Vic,” “Tige”, and Schneider played a good defensive game; in fact, every one got in, and gave all he had in the pinches. Talbot Hunt was able to make himself noticed at guard, and he displayed a good deal of ability and aggressiveness. The victory and the courteous treatment will always be remembered by those who were fortunate enough to make the trip and see the game. Score—Peru 20 Kearney 6. On Thanksgiving Day, on of the largest crowds of the year saw the Peru team play their last game of the season. Phis game was played with Cotncr, and constituted what is considered one of the best games of the year. 'The team was at its best, and indeed seemed to realize that they were playing for the honor of the school. The efficiency of the scoring mechanism and team work is evident when we consider the decisive score. The first quarter was without score; and it looked as though we were to have a royal battle. In the second period things began to happen, and from then on it was a series of long and short, but steady advances. Jones, Smith, Sandberg, Haney, and Craig starred for Peru. 'Phis last game, more than any other showed the real ability of the Peru team. The only regrctable fact is that Haney, Craig, B. Kmmert, Lee Smith, Spacht, Leger, V. Kmmert, Schneider, II. Smith. Bell, and Jones have fought their last fight for Old Peru. S 7
