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.

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.

ON returning from Chadron the Bobcats pointed for the old rivals from Kearney, the Antelopes. Peru and Kearney did not meet during the 1930 season. The Antelopes were N. I. A. A. Conference champions for the 1930 season. Coach Ted James brought a team to Peru with high expectations of winning from the Bobcats, but due to the 1930 affair the Peruvians were well set for the Antelopes and consequent y walked away with a victory of 20 to 0. Peru had the edge at all times during the game and were at no time in any danger of being scored upon.
Thanksgiving was a day of snow, sleet, and other sorts of disagreeable weather. The Bobcats traveled to Omaha to encounter the Omaha University Cardinals at Western League Park. Omaha, with the best team in years, were contenders for the conference title and only the Peru Bobcats stood between them and their desire. The field was covered with snow and the ground was frozen underneath the snow, so that the playing conditions were anything but good. It was very difficult for either team to make any headway until finally Sautter got away for a long end run and a touchdown, making the game 6 to 0 for Peru. During the second half Omaha ran two kickoffs back for touchdowns and the final whistle ended the game 12 to 6 in favor of the Omaha Cardinals. The Bobcats received, as usual, an excellent reception at Omaha.
Only four of the 1931 Bobcats will not be back for the 1932 season. They are: Ackerson. guard; Dasher, tackle: Fisher, tackle: Sautter, back. There is a wealth of material left for 1932 which means that Peru should have an excellent team.
Captain-elect Homer Hatcher, all-state quarterback for two consecutive years, is certainly the right man to lead the 1932 !3obcat football team. Hatch' has held a regular birth on Peru football teams for the past three years and has handled his position in championship style at all times. He is not only a field general and a punter, but he can also hit that line hard for those few yards which are so often badly needed. ‘Hatch’ weighs about one hundred and seventy-five pounds and can handle every ounce of his weight. He is the best passer in the N. I. A. A. and has pulled many a game out ol a tight hole with his accurate bullet passes. The 1932 Bobcats are fortunate to have such an all around man as their leader.
