mental in providing the Peruvians with a 13 to 12 lead at the half, hut the Cards outlasted the Blue and White in the last few minutes of the game, and walked off with a 30 to 23 margin.
Sickened by their first conference setback, the Lorbccr men journeyed to Wayne and eked out a 34 to 31 win in a game that was featured by the committment of 29 fouls.
Next on the list came Walter Dobbins' semi-professional Lincoln Fcderals, a team sprinkled with former Nebraska University cage stars. The Fcderals staved off a last minute rally and pulled the game out of the hands of the Peruvians, 34 to 31.
The fighting Cats stepped back into conference play on February 1, and lost to a frantic pack of Kearney under-dogs by a score of 47 to 39. Peru had been favored, by comparing pre-season scores, to win without much of a struggle.
Flanked by two stinging conference defeats out of three starts, the Bobcats journeyed on westward for two more league engagements, this time on a double-bill with the Chadron Eagles. The first fray was a veritable football game, as both teams chalked up a total of 29 fouls. But the Bobcats, suffering from the ejection of Punches and Carmichael, came through victorious, 35 to 27. The following night found the Eagles breaking loose with a much improved offensive, but Riggs and Moore came to the rescue of the Bobcats with a total of 23 points, and the Chadronitcs were again subdued, 35 to 33.

Back row: Coach Lorbeer, Knapp, West, Cowell, Shccly, Coach Gilkeson.
Ernest F. "Dutch” Lorbeer, head basketball pilot for the Peru Bobcats, has led his teams to the front throughout his tenure of office.
No one can doubt the popularity of this wise and efficient coach. "Dutch" is a strenuous trainer and gets out of his men all that they have.
When he leaves Peru on March 1. he goes to Beaumont, Texas where he trains many more young men in the art of Baseball. He is rated in the baseball profession as being unequalled in handling young talent.
What is true in baseball is true in basketball, for it is a well known fact that "Dutch" knows his youngsters.
Coach Ernest F. “Dutch" Lorbecr's Bobcat basketeers, bolstered by a stock of freshmen and sophomores, went through the 1934-35 cage season with nine wins out of sixteen starts, and finished in a three-way tie for second place in the N. I. A. A. Conference standings.
The Cats had two schedules—a pre-season and a regular season group of games. They visited Tarkio, Missouri, in the first engagement, took a winning 35 to 26 count and then embarked on a week's tour of Kansas, subduing the Bethany Swedes, 30 to 10, and losing to the powerful Hays Teachers, 38 to 17. The boys returned home and stepped on Tarkio again, 34 to 24.
The regular season got under way on the home maples with the Bethany Swedes the first victims by a score of 33 to 25. Four days later the Bobcats were hosts to the invincible Omaha University aggregation in the first conference struggle for the home boys. Riggs and Carmichael were instru-

Weary from a long week’s journey, the Peruvians took a two-day “rest" on their own campus, and then set out for Omaha to do battle with their strongest opponents. It was at this point in the season that the Bobcat morale was split wide open. Omaha's famous basket-shooting trio, who had been thorns in the sides of Nebraska college teams for the past three years, exploded for their last time against Peru. They piled up most of their team's 47 points, and allowed the hapless Peruvians only 17.
Still anxious for second honors, however, the Bobcats came home and awaited their approaching second game with Wayne. Moore, Riggs, Carmichael, Lewis, and Shccly came through with divided scoring and whipped the Wildcats for the second time during the season, 39 to 35.
Hastings College, champs of the N. C. A. C., were next on the home card. The Bronchos vir-tually murdered the Bobcats during the first three periods, and then warded off a last quarter scoring spree by Punches and Moore, to win handily, 36 to 28.
The Bobcats wound up their foreign court schedule with the Wesleyan Plainsmen in the most rough-and-tumble contest of the season. Thirty-three fouls were called on the two teams, and three Peru men were expelled from the game before Peru finally came out on top, 30 to 27.
The final game of the season was played on March 1, to decide the fate of the conference stand ings. Peru had to win in order to hold second place alone, but Kearney, those reckless under-dogs, again appeared in Peru's path and blasted their hopes by handing down a 40 to 36 defeat, which automatically threw Peru, Wayne, and Kearney into a three-way tie for second honors in the conference.
