TRACK activities have been handicapped this year due to the fact the rains last spring washed the north end of the track away and it lias taken much time to get the track back into condition again. The whole track has been recindered. The track at the first was not as fast as it could be for this reason. However, the track aspirants seemed to have looked upon this difficulty with disdain for they donned their suits and took their daily work out on the cindered highway. It is this keen spirit of making the best of a bad situation that has brought such marked success to Peru trackmen.
This year’s track squad, coached by Lon R. Graf and assisted by Ralph Williams, is composed of a group of veterans such as Kerner, Mumper, Zook, Sams, Briggs, SchafTner, Galloway, Young, Sautter and Walkinshaw.
Much can be said for Graf as a track coach. Every year he turns out two or three outstanding track stars who are recognized throughout Nebraska as outstanding stars and very dangerous in track meets.
This year’s captain is Frank Kerner, a Senior and a veteran of four years’ competition. He is outstanding in the javelin event and the hurdles, showing very much ability in these events.
The outstanding freshmen which turned out were Whyman in the distance events, Bruce in the quarter-mile, Millhollin in the dashes and Sugden in the high jump.
The first track meet of the year for our cinder was the Hastings Relays on April 12. A veteran half-mile relay team composed of Mumper, Zook, Sams, and Williams, and Kerner in the individual events made the trip to represent the Blue and White.
On Friday, April 18, an interclass meet will be held in the Peru stadium. This meet is entered into with as much interest as if the participants were competing for the state title. Saturday of the next week the annual Southeastern Nebraska track and field meet will be held here. Eight teams will take part in this meet and just to speculate a little it would be logical to say that competition will be very keen. On May 2 the Bobcats will launch their attack on foreign shores, going to Maryville, Missouri, for a dual meet. Peru has maintained some very splendid relations with their fellow teacheis beyond the “great muddy” and whenever a Maryville team comes to Peru the air is charged with expectancy because there never is any certainty as to how the game will terminate until the final whistle has been sounded. This Missouri affair certainly will be interesting for the trackmen and in all probability they will have something to tell about when they get home.

On May 9 the Bobcat cinder experts will journey to Lincoln where they meet the strong followers of Wesley. As in the case of Maryville, Wesleyan always gives their opponents no small amount of competition and when a Bobcat team enters the field against them, they seem to rise above themselves. It was a Wesleyan basket ball team that brought to an end the long string of victories by Peru which gives Peru the distinction of a world record in consecutive basket ball games won. In all probability this meet with Wesleyan will l e a fast one and doubtless will go down in history in the future.
The day following the Maryville meet the annual M. I. N. K. high school track meet will be held in the Peru stadium. This affair should bring together some of the most promising high school athletes in the neighborhood of Peru. This meet should be very interesting and the students of Old Peru have a duty to perform. If these young men from neighboring schools and neighboring states are well treated while here, they will unconsciously like the way “things’ seem around “Old Peru”. This atmosphere of welcome can be created by the trackmen, especially, and the student body generally, and it is the duty of everyone at Peru to do his bit in winning these lads who will carry on the traditions in athletics that have been so nobly founded and preserved during the past.
Plans are under way for an open meet to be held at Hastings. The plan of this meet is to have all the colleges in Nebraska entered regardless of the conference to which they belong. There are about twelve colleges in Nebraska who would l)e eligible to enter into this proposed meet and it should be a very interesting experiment. Coach Graf expressed his approval of this type of meet and said that Peru would enter if such a meet was arranged. In all probability the Bobcats will show their stuff and incidentally their heels in more than one event if this state-wide meet could 1 e arranged. Schaffner, the “unexpected," always has a surprise for his spectatois. Right when the going seems a bit tough, he rises nobly above the situation with the net result of a victory for the Pale Blue and White. With such prospects the Boys of the Bobcat squad ought to be of necessity forced to buy extra heavy watch chains because they will be burdened with gold and silver medals to the extent that only a heavy chain will be of sufficient strength. This is only a prediction but predictions are easy when a Bobcat athletic team is under consideration.
