THE 19 34 PERUVIAN TRACK Bobcat track teams, especially under Gilkeson's tutelage, always make creditable showings. With eleven letter men this spring returning to the fold, the 1934 cinder artists should prove no exception. Robert "Bob" Carmichael, versatile three-sport letterman, steps into his first captaincy as he leads the Peru tracksters through the season. His specialty is clearing high jump standards set at six feet. Ex-captain Cowell, judging from past performances, should be the Bobcats' most valuable point-getter. Ably assisting will be the nine remaining lettermen. These are: Luttman, javelin thrower; Shafer, Andrews, and Newton, middle distances; Perry and Cook, long distances; Witt, sprints: and Pate and Punches, weights. The 1933 performers enjoyed one of the most creditable seasons of Bobcat track history, being all-victorious in their trio of dual encounters. Led by Captain "Bo" Cowell, versatile sprint, hurdle, and jump artist, Peru barely eked out a v in in the season's opener over the strong Marysville aggregation. The succeeding meet found the Bobcats invading Missouri to contest with Tarkio, and winning their second victory of the season at the expense of opponents from the "show me" state. Omaha's Cardinals came here for the closing meet of the season and were crushed by an overwhelming score. Peru dominated both track and field events. Last year's team closed a successful season by copping second honors in the State College Meet held at Lincoln. One notch higher and the championship forms the goal for this year's performers.

THE 19 3 4 PERUVIAN ml r j; m m FOOTBALL However, this reputation was short-lived as Omaha's Red Birds journeyed to Peru and garnered a 13 to 0 victory. The Peru defense bogged as a brilliant trio of Cardinal backs took turns at puncturing the Bobcat line. The Bobcats enjoyed some very good moments, but failed to sustain a drive for any length of time. The game, as is typical of most Omaha-Peru conflicts, was an unusually rough affair, both teams drawing numerous penalties. After the Omaha mix, the Peruvians journeyed to the extreme northwestern corner of the state to engage in battle the champion Eagles of Chadron. Here the Bobcats encountered a superior team and were quite decisively outplayed. Coach Rufus Trapp used his remarkable reserve strength to full advantage in wearing down the Peruvians. The red-garbed Westerners had a brilliant array of performers, Christianson, halfback, and the redoubtable "Indian" Miller, tackle, being outstanding. The final score read 22 to 0 against Peru. The last game of the season was played on the home field against the Wayne Wildcats. Badly perturbed by the disturbing antics of Wayne's shifty halfback, Gast, the Bobcats were trailing 14 to 0 in the last quarter. Then it was that a splendid Peru rally revealed a marvelous fighting spirit that carried the blue and white clad boys to a 14 to 14 tie. A remarkably executed barrage of passes played the major role in the attack that resulted in two touchdowns, with both extra points converted. Thusly did a successful season know its fitting end in a surge of undeniable Peru Spirit. With all lettermen but four returning to the fold next year, prospects for a winning team are exceedingly heartening. Those graduated are: Gaines, Goit, Cowell, and Pate.

BASKETBALL Coach Karl Lawrence's highly efficient Midland Warriors invaded the Peru camp and merited a 41 to 27 victory. Champions of the N. C. A. C. Conference for four successive years, they displayed a smooth working outfit, featured by the uncanny offensive work of the midget all-state forward, Kounouvsky. The Bobcats broke even on their next two games: both played on Peru maples and both conference frays. Moore led a great second-half rally as the Peruvians nipped Kearney’s Antelopes by a 47 to 33 tune. Following this, Omaha U. clinched the championship by virtue of a 38 to 25 win. The remaining four games on the schedule involved a pair of road trips. The Bobcats fared rather disastrously on the first, losing to Midland 22 to 15 and Wayne 35 to 29. They fully redeemed themselves by taking a 37 to 36 win from Kearney and second in the conference. Hebron was the last victim, losing a 36 to 33 Captain Punches ably led the Bobcats through their pendable guard was a bulwark on defense and his return aid the Cats in their quest for the championship.
