Bobcats in action
The first home game and the first game of the regular schedule was played with the Syracuse Legionaires who were handed a nice defeat by a final score of 45-19, the half having ended 25-6. The Bobcats were showing very good playing in this game, everyone working at top notch. Railsback and Hatcher tied with Pickering of Syracuse for scoring honors, Sautter and Korber were showing good form on the defense and Captain Booth, Wicina, and Hurst were also going good. Syracuse relied entirely on long shots for making points but the distance was too great to make enough counters.
Captain Edwin Booth completed his basket ball career this year. He has played with the Bobcats hn| pif each of the three years he has been in attendance at K Peru. He played regular forward on the team this V. past year. The next game saw the opposite of the JMhf first, resulting in a decisive defeat for the Bobcats dealt out by the independent Northboro Athletic jjU
Club of Northboro, Iowa, led by “The Grand Old '
Man of Northboro,” one A. Knuckles. The score at the half found the Independents leading by a 21-4 score, having run up twenty-one points before Peru could account for themselves. jk'

1929 Basket Ball Squad
AT THE call for basket ball a large number of aspirants turned out. Letter-men who turned out were Captain Booth, Brockman, Young, and Galloway at forwards, Korber and Hurst at guards. • In addition, Walkinshaw at forward and Wicina at guard. Of the promising freshmen who turned out were Pederson of Omaha, Hatcher of Missouri Valley, Iowa, Millhollin of Bridgeport, and Pric-fert of Reynolds.
Lost to this year’s team were three all-state players, Joe Krejci, center; Russell Waslev and “Swede” Hertz, guards.
After about three weeks practice in drill of fundamentals and scrimmage, Coach Earnest Lorbeer had a very formidable team to start the year’s basket ball schedule with.
Starting the season the team took a “barnstorming” tour into Kansas, playing Sterling College at Sterling, Kansas, two games with the quintet of Kansas State Teachers College. Hays, Kansas, and the last game with the Portis Dynamos at Osborne, Kansas. The Bobcats did not get off to a successful start, losing three games and winning one, but it served to Coacii Lokbkkr get the team in the proper playing attitude.

Two freshmen, Hatcher and Milhollin, and a junior, Hurst, carried the brunt of the battle for Peru. The end of the game found the Bobcats at the small end of a 40-12 count.
We find the Bobcats next invading the nest of the Ravens at St. Benedicts College, Atchison, Kansas, and found the bird adverse to the “Cats.” The game was an evenly fought game, but the Ravens hung to a slight lead during the first half and were leading 6-3 at the end of the first period. In the second half the Bobcats'came back strong blit the final gun found the score tied. In the extra period Peru’s free throw was trumped with a field goal by St. Benedict, who won out by an 18-17 count.
For the next game the Peru Bobcats entertained the Wayne Wildcats on the home floor. Swartz and Andrews left for home with a 34-28 victory over Peru. The first half was a duel between centers with the “big boy” Swartz having the advantage only in points. The Wildcats led throughout the game with the exception of a few minutes in the second half. Brockman and Hatcher were outstanding for Peru. Priefert, guard, played exceptionally well in his first appearance for the Blue and White.
The Bobcats journeyed to Omaha and played the Redbirds in the Benson gymnasium. The Redbirds came close to winning the game by stalling. They gained possession of the ball before any points were made and stalled for four minutes. Frye, guard, holding the ball most of the time.
