Maryville soon found a little loop hole in Peru's defense, and used their passing attack to effect, and finally gained a one point advantage over the Bobcats, winning the game 7-6. Every Alumni went away knowing that Peru had a team that would fight to the last to carry the Blue and White on to victory.
The Chadron Eagles left their sand-hill home and flew down to Peru, to be entertained by the Bobcats for Peru's first conference game. Old Man Weather was experimenting, trying to find out which was the better in the rain, a Bobcat or an Eagle. His experiment was completed by the end of the first half, because he shut off the faucet and let the game proceed on a field covered with water. The game was a muddy one and it matched the kicking toe of the Eagle against that of the "Bobbie." The Bobcats took a 13-0 decision.
Peru met Wayne in the second conference game of the season. The wind was strong throughout the entire game, but Peru won 13-7. Peru made no substitutions during the game which was unusual for a football game, but the Bobcats were hitting their pace at Wayne.
Then the Bobcats had a week of rest, and football was at a standstill. Tarkio called up and asked the Bobcat Reserves down for an afternoon visit. The game was interesting throughout and both teams varied their attack, and on the last play of the game Peru scored, which brought a 6-0 victory back to Peru.

First Row: Punches. Tolly. Wobb.
Second Row: Wright (student manager), Coach Gilkeson.
"Silk" has finished his third year as head coach of the Bobcats. A member of Peru's first championship football team in 1924, "Gilk" has continued to make a name for himself, now as a "Builder of Champions." Under his tutelage Peru teams have been considered among Nebraska's strongest on the gridiron. He con get every ounce of fight out of his Bobcats, and every man will fight to the lost for him and the Pole Blue and the White.
During his three years at Peru.‘he has been assisted by True Blue "Dutch" Lorbeer. "Gilk" and "Dutch" certainly have made a team that Peru is proud of.
With the field of play as slick as a table top and a new quarter back in the lineup. W. N. Delzell certainly called the right signals, for the Omaha University representative made the motion for the N. I. A. A. championship to be awarded to Peru, Chadron seconded the motion since Peru had played three conference gomes and won like number, while Omaha had played three conference gomes, won two, and tied one. Thus Delzell scored a 5-0 victory bringing another N. I. A. A. championship to Peru.
So ended the 1932 football season and Captain Hatcher, Howard Hatcher, Tolly. Bruce, Dasher. Dahlgreen. Webb, and Gaines have played their last game for the Pale Blue and the White.
