HOMECOMING is always a gala time at Peru. The highlight of the day was the football game, which was played this season with the Wayne State Teachers College Wildcats. The game was staged at eight o’clock on the night of Homecoming, before a crowd of approximately twenty-live hundred, mostly students and alumni. Peru’s natural athletic bowl was decorated very beautifully. The words. Welcome Wayne, were painted on the bank at the east side of the field. The crowd displayed a great deal of enthusiasm during the course of the game.
In addition to being a Homecoming game, the game with Wayne was also Peru's first conference battle and so was doubly important. The Bobcats were pitched for the fray and advanced the ball to the Wildcats’ goal line no less than three times, only to be called back for one reason or another. During the second half Wayne was awarded one of those “breaks’ of the game and so scored the lone touchdown of the game. This touchdown gave them not only the game, but also the conference championship. This game was another of those affairs where the team which makes the most yards and most downs does not necessarily win.

week following the Nebraska game, the Doane Tigers came to Peru for the annual battle. As is the case with most scoreless ties this game was relatively uneventful. Peru outdowned and outyarded the Doane team three to one and played in the Tiger’s territory during most of the game, but was unable to score.
Once again the Bobcats broke over the conference lines and engaged in a battle with the Midland Warriors at Fremont. Midland had a team of veterans, some of which were all-state men. and so could not be called a set-up by any means. The Warriors opened the firing by scoring a touchdown during the first quarter, but were upset when Peru came back and marched down the field for two touchdowns in a row and completed one try-for-point. making the game 13 to 6 in favor of the Peru Bobcats. The game was very representative of every style of football. Both teams used a great deal of aerial work as well as straight line football, trick plays, and open field football. Playing conditions were not the best because of a fog. which covered the field making it rather difficult to distinguish the players. Ackerson. Peru guard, played a marvelous game at Fremont.

nPHE Peru hoys stepped out of the conference for a fifth time and encountered the strong Norfolk team. This conflict took place during the Teacher’s Convention vacation, and so there were but few on hand to witness the game. The Bobcats had heard much of the prowess and power of the Norfolk team and were prepared for a tough battle. They were in no sense disappointed for the team from the north put up a great light. It was in this game that the Peru first year men began to show their true worth. "Butsy" Harris was probably the outstanding player of the evening. He scored fourteen points, two touchdowns and two try-for-points.
Next came a weeks rest for the Bobcats, after which they took to the railroad for a long ride to Chadron to meet the Chadron Eagles on their home field. The Eagles are no easy foe at any time and especially when met at Chadron. The red clad boys from Chadron played a wonderful line game led by their elusive halfback. Nemick. and Miller, a powerful tackle. It was all that Peru could do to hold her own during the first half, but when the Eagles began to open up with their passing game the Bobcats at once began to claw and. led bv Hatcher and Sautter, emerged with a victory. I he final score was Peru 18. Chadron 6. The long train ride had not been in vain for the Peruvians.
