Itaskcllull GLENX GILKESOX. Center “Gilk” took his training at Clay Center and started right olT at the very first. Me is a rangy man and fitted in with the tall fellows very well. “Gilk” had a habit of slipping down the side line and then feeding to some one going under. He covered well when on the defense and never lost his head when in a tight place. “Gilk" was going better as the season went on and by the time he serves three more seasons with Peru he will have won many honors. LEO FAUNCE. Forward “Mick” was the hard luck man of last year. He was kept away from a letter by injuries but made up for it this season. He had a good eye for the basket and would register whether near or far. He played the floor with a world of endurance and was so anxious lie could hardly wait for his time to get into it. “Mick” is leaving but he has given Peru some good service and we know lie will return for more of Peru's-athletics. MARK DELZELL. Guard “Mac" was playing his first season with the college team. He had played four years with the Training School Team and now graduated to faster company. “Mac" is a heady player and deserves considerable mention for his good start. He entered the Wayne game here at a critical moment and seemed to set things going. He is a good floor man and often fools his man by a neat bounce of the ball. Mark will give Peru three years more of his time and energy. We arc predicting great things for Mark before he leaves Peru. One ){undied Sir

Basketball GEORGE WILLY, Guard “Toppy” decided that this was his year to go good in basketball. He had never given much attention to basketball while here but soon showed that he could play this game as well as he could play all others. “Toppy” was fast at getting down the court and could get back in time to break up the opponents play. He sure never stopped until he had his man. George will be with Peru next winter and will show many of these teams his true worth as a guard. GLENN FRARY. Forward (All-State) Frary went better this winter than ever. He was still just short enough to slip through and get his shot. He scored 64 points, a very good mark, but his real value was in his ability to play the floor and start a break in the opponents defense. When on the defense lie could worry the opposing team by stepping in. taking one of their passes and getting his shot away before they could cover him. Frary is leaving so Peru loses one more good player. GLOVER MILAM. Guard “Dub” had a big job on his hands to fill that back guard position but he sure took care of it as is shown by the low scores of the opponents. In six games they were held to 10 points or less and one of these was a shut out. “Dub" had a way of playing the ball and not the man that allowed him to stop many shots and still avoid a foul. He played more times than any man on the team as he didn't like to be relieved. "Dub" was a good man to shift to jumping center and will no doubt be back for more sport. One Hundred Fil e

Basketball € Ol) 2. basketball Season TWO TIME CHAMPIONS When the call came for basketball men this year the interest was the best shown for many years. Two reasons for this were given. First. Peru had a championship to defend and hold onto for another season. Also there was one "real" gymnasium to play in and everyone was ready. Some good men were lost from last years team but with Capt. Rothcrt, "Bitzie,” and Frary on hand it was easy to start. The big problem seemed to be to develop a back guard as Wcimcr was looking after the center position in good shape. "Dul)“ Milam soon got onto the knack of picking his man and things began to look better. Fauncc, Willy. Dclzell, and Gilkeson caught the stride and away we went. Another problem that confronted Coach Speer was to get some of the teams in this conference to realize that Peru was again a contender for the championship and for their own proof he showed them that they had better “take us on." His pleading was all in vain and so Peru started out determined to take the "flag" without meeting Wesleyan. Hastings. Grand Island and Doanc. Later many of these teams learned a costly lesson but all we can say is that we arc sorry and hope they come to in time to get on next years schedule. In order to be ready for the opening game Coach took his team on a trip into Kansas during the holiday vacation. '1'his trip was a very good tonic for all. LAWRENCE GAME The Lawrence C. of C. Team was a team of ex-Kansas University and other stars of that section. The game was fast from start to finish but Peru showed them how we play basketball in Nebraska and won 21 to 14. HASKELL INDIANS The following night Peru met the Haskell Indians on the same floor. Through some good team work Peru soon piled up a lead which they held until the last few minutes of the game when Haskell stepped out in front by dropping in some long ones. The final result was Haskell 15, Peru 14. KANSAS CITY ATHLETIC CLUB Here was where Peru met a trained five. Four of their players were All-American Stars of last years tournament. Although the Bobcats bad hard luck on several of their shots they spent a lot of their time learning some good basketball. They lost the game 52 to 12 but picked up many new plays. These games had no bearing on Peru’s standing in this State. WAYNE GAME This was our first game in the new gym and Peru was ready to step. Over confidence is a very bad thing and that very thing allowed Wayne to bold an 11 to 10 lead at half time. Peru had led 10 to 1 at one time Wayne scored 5 baskets in rapid succession. Coach Speer injected a little "Speermint” during the intermission and Peru came back strong. Mark got in at the right time and with "Fritz" leading the way Peru won 26 to 16. TABOR GAME Tabor sent their team over to pick up a few pointers about Nebraska basketball and Peru showed them about all we bad. The first string rolled up a good lead and then the second string came on for a chance. The game was more even then but when the "Big Boys" came back for the finish the game ended, Peru 43, Tabor 14.
