THE • • PERUVIAN T ennis Peru's 1934 Bobcat tennis team, composed entirely of lettermen, enjoyed a season which, although not brilliant, was very successful. Coach Maxwell's men plastered a double set-back on the Wesleyan Plainsmen, but were victims of a like score at the hands of the Omaha Cardinal netsters. The Peril' vians also fared disastrously in their two pilgrimages into Missouri, meeting Tarkio and Maryville Teachers. The Maryville Bearcats smirched the season's opener for the Bobcats by winning 3 to 1, at Maryville. Peru's lone tally came by virtue of Fred Rohr's victory in the last singles match of the day. May Day saw Coach Maxwell's men pouring a 4 to 2 defeat on the netsters from Wesleyan University. Rohrs, Miller, and Shumard won singles matches with Pate and Miller winning their doubles mix. The next meet, played at Tarkio, May 9, saw the Missourians victors, 4 to 1. Two days later Omaha University invaded the Bobcat lair. Miller won his singles, and Rohrs and Shumard captured the top doubles match for Peru's two points, but Omaha made four. The Peruvians journeyed to Lincoln May 15, for a return tangle with Wesleyan's netsters. Rohrs, Shumard, and Pate picked up three points in the singles, while Pate and Miller were picking up a fourth in the doubles. The final tally gave Peru 4, and Wesleyan 2. The season's final meet at Omaha, May 29, saw Rohrs and Pate winning the two top singles matches, which, with Miller and Pate's double victory, gave the Bobcats 3 points. The Cardinals however, picked up one more, and emerged on top, 4 to 3. With an a lb veteran team returning this Spring, prospects arc truly promising.

1935 SQUAD Track SEASON'S RECORD The Peru Bobcat 1934 Track and Field experts ran, jumped, and hurled their way to the championship of the N. I. A. A. Conference last spring after going through an undefeated season in Nebraska competition. The Peruvians lost their first dual meet at the hands of the Maryville, Missouri speedsters on the latter's campus, by a big margin. After two weeks more of training under the tutorship of Coach Glen Gilkcson, the Bobcats walked away with a quadrangular affair at Wesleyan, which included also, Doane and Omaha Uni' versity. “Bo" Cowell, the veritable one-man track team, came through with high point honors in this meet, as he did in those following. The following week, on the home track, the Tarkio College cinder experts got off luckily when the meet was stopped because of a near deluge. Peru had slammed the 440 yard dash and the first two places in the high jump, along with a second and third in the mile. Coach Gilkcson's proteges then journeyed to Wayne as a last minute guest to a quintangular meet. The Bobcats barely got on the field as the meet started, but came through with a smashing victory. Riggs breezed through the 220 and Cowell came through with four first places. Moore made his debut on the low hurdles, while the Peru quarter-milers came through in good fashion. The following week was the big moment of the season for the Peruvians. Coach Gilkcson map-ped out a program that was followed almost to a dot, by his point-getters. The scene was Kearney, and the event was the battle for the N. I. A. A. Championship. Cowell, who was expected to bring in twenty points, lost out in his favorite high-hurdle event, but Riggs picked up some unexpected points in the two dash events. Before the afternoon was half over, the Bobcats had amassed enough points to win the meet hands down. Peru track teams in the past five years have established an enviable record for any college to approach, and with the material in view this year. Coach Gilkcson is banking on another successful season. • The lettermen w'ho graduateed last year are: Cowell, Pate, Cook, Perry, Shafer, Luttman. Those who failed to return to school this year are: Fisher, Calland, Witt, and Andrews. THE Page One Hundred Two 1955 ■ PERUVIAN

Red Cross Life Saving Red Cross Life Saving tests were first conducted on the Peru campus in the fall of 1932. Edward Wood of Nebraska City gave the first test in October. At that time eleven qualified as Senior Red Cross Life Savers. The following month the Red Cross sent a special Field Representative to the campus to give the Examiners Test. The successful passing of this qualified six Peruvians to conduct Junior and Senior Tests. Again in the fall of 1933 a Field Representative was sent to test applicants for their Examiners badge. At that time ten examiners qualified. A Field Representative was again on the campus in February 1935. At this time several again satisfactorily met all requirements and received the different badges given. Credit for the success of and student interest in these tests must be given largely to Miss Phyllis Davidson, Woman's Athletic Director, whose enthusiasm has created a demand for life saving classes. A list of the tests given since 1932 and the approximate number of people who successfully passed them follows: Beginners..............................130 Swimmers............................... 45 Junior Life Saving Test................. 2 Senior Life Saving Test.................31 Examiners...........................12 THE ■ 93T • PERUVIAN Page One Htoidred Four
