On the next trip Peru met Norfolk Junior College and the Wayne Wildcats. The Norfolk team was a far superior team as compared with their team the previous year, but the Bobcats finally subdued the Norfolk team to the tune of 38-28.
The Bobcats were definitely eliminated from a chance at the 1930 State College Basket Ball Championship when they dropped a 40-30 decision to the Wayne Wildcats on the Wayne floor. Peru played good basket ball but was unable to stop Swartz, who gathered fourteen points to lead the evening’s scoring.
In the last three games the Bobcats came into their own by taking all three games from two conference teams, Omaha and Chadron. In the Omaha game Peru showed a decided change for the better in basket ball form, playing with the precision and skill which has been characteristic of Peru teams in the past. Peru led throughout the game but the Redbirds kept well within striking distance and managed to tie the score just as the game ended. Peru was not to be defeated, however, and it was during the overtime period that the Bobcats ran up the big point margin of 38-28 to win the game.
The results of the two Chadron games came as a surprise, as the Eagles, on basis of comparative scores, had a higher rating for these games. The Bobcats, however, were in the right playing mood and they made the Eagle’s feathers fly. In the first game the entire Peru team just couldn't be stopped and the final gun found the Bobcats the possessors of a victory with the one-sided score of 36-11. The final game found the Eagles a great deal harder to subdue, but the “Cats” finally clawed out a 24-21 decision.

Brockman Korukr Milliiollin Hurst
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. Peru soon got hold of the ball and made the count 6-4 against Omaha at the half, and winning the game 30-20.

THE Peru Dramatic Club has “carried on!"
Under the leadership of the new director, Miss Marian Hendrick, the Club has thrived and grown stronger.
This year’s work has been marked by successes among the students along directing lines. Much has been learned by the members about methods of production, which will be of incalculable value when the students are out as teachers.
The major productions this year have been varied in theme and entirely different from anything ever attempted before. These were "Merton or the Movies,” a movie-struck youngster, and “The Queen's Husband,” the king of a modern fictitious kingdom.
