The football season of '22 while not so successful as to the number of games won, having won four and lost four, yet it was very satisfactory in several ways.
Almost an entirely new and inexperienced team, yet a team full of pep, fight and persistency, and being ably led by Captain R. Bath, they developed into a combination that their opponents were unable to stop. The first game of the season won by the home team was from Nebraska City. Four games in a row were then dropped—Tccumsch, Falls City, Wahoo, and Plattsmouth. But each of the games only served as an incentive to greater effort for the rest. In the next game with Tarkio the boys found themselves and played an eleven which had an advantage in both weight and experience, to a standstill. Next came Highland College, Kansas, who fell before the attack of a team that played as one man.
The last game of the season, Thanksgiving day with the Auburnites was a fitting close for the season. At no time was our goal in real danger. With the line smashing plunges of Captain Bath, Coatney bucking the line for a few yards whenever needed, O. Conkle and H. Bath tearing around end or through openings made by Parriott, Jones, or Hcywood and Van-derford, Taylor at center, F. Conkle and Jennings Parriott as ends blocking all attempts of Auburn to come through or around; the game ended 27-0 in our favor. Cowell substituting for Chas. Parriott, Dallam for F. Conkle and Barnard for H. Bath made no change in the consistency of the gains.
With Hcywood at the helm next year we expect a year more successful than the past in the number of games won.
Whatever the team has accomplished this year is in a large measure due to the untiring efforts of Coach -Yerkcs.
The chances for a good team next year arc not quite so good as the entire first team squad graduates, but from the second team several men promise to uphold the tradition of the school. Among those who look good for next year arc C. Newton, E. Hcywood, L. Parriott, James Delzell, II. Peterson, and Charles Dallam.
The great success of the team is due very much to the capable work of Coach Yerkcs and next year we believe he will develop another team which will do the school honor.

'Peru U'figb School basketball Season
The Basketball season of 1922-23 proved to be a very successful one for the high school team. Out of a wealth of material from last year, including three letter men. Coach Yerkcs developed a strong, fast team.
The first two games of the season were with fast teams and our boys, not used to playing together, lost by very small margins. But here, unlike many teams they did not lose their pep and give up all hope, but instead went into the following games with more determination to win. Here they showed what a little pep and determination will do for a team and as a result won ten games out of eleven played. Not only did they outclass their opponents in the technical points of the game but at all times the sportsmanship displayed by the home team was very pleasing to those who witnessed the games.
At the Southeastern Nebraska Basketball Tournament held in Peru, the record of the Peru team was very enviable. Although they did not win the cup they went through to the finals and here lost their game by only one point to the fast Gretna quintet.
As yet it is impossible to predict what will happen at the State Basketball Tournament to be held in Lincoln in the near future but we feel sure the boys will make a good showing for themselves.
