Peru has every reason to feel proud of the showing made by her athletic organizations during the 1916 and 1917 seasons.
They have in all probability, placed on the fields, some of the best teams that have ever aspired fof honor and fame in the name of “Old Peru.’’
The one man who is directly responsible for this is Coach Earl Johnson.
He came to Peru from Doane College in 1913, and since that time has found a place in the heart of every athlete and all the other students who have come to know him in a personal way.
When a team goes out over the state to meet the representative teams from the different schools, they immediately pass judgment on their manner of playing. Every team has a standard for which they strive and if it be for “dirty” play, this will be the ultimate result of their work.
The standard of which we speak comes from the direct personality and influence of the man who is directing the teams—the Coach.
Peru students should indeed feel proud that they are privileged to stand behind a team, which has for its Standard, the ideal of “Clean Athletics.” It means that the men are receiving training which will be handed down to the high schools and the movement is a great step to wipe out the ancient prejudice which parents hold against athletics in general.
Peru has enjoyed one of the most successful seasons that has ever been recorded in the history of the school. The football team ranked second in the state inter-colle-giatc, and this is exceptionally good when you consider the fact that they were compct-ing with several four year colleges.
Basketball was popular and the team ranked third. The team was composed of football men for the most part and they are also rather numerous on the baseball squad.
This shows the scarcity of material w hich is Coach Johnson’s greatest problem and it goes to show that he is more than proficient in his line.
As we are leaving school and another group is coming in to represent Peru let us always he loyal and true and boost for the old school and wish them the greatest possible success.
