shown in years,” said Assistant Coach “Dutch” Lorbeer, who had returned from a successful baseball season. Saturday was indeed a marvelous day with one thing to spoil its perfection—the Bobcats went down to defeat before the Wesleyan Plainsmen. The Marching Band contributed greatly to the success of the day. The usual “tough breaks” of the game expressed themselves when injuries forced veteran Wayne Riggs from the line-up for the remainder of the season.
The week of the Nebraska State Teachers Association presented to the Bobcats the tremendous task of playing the big, powerful Omaha U. eleven, who succeeded in avenging the many former Peru victories in their final conference competition. The 31 to o defeat was the

Game number two was played at Fremont against the Midland warriors. The team was accompanied by that promising new organization on the Campus, a marching band. Peru was unable to overcome the traditional “thirteen” jinx, although we were consoled by the fact that “thirteen” was a worse jinx for Midland. For the past three seasons victories for Peru have been characterized by the score i.$. Phis year saw thirteen on both sides of the score column. Outstanding in the game were Story, who returned to his form of 1934. Rummcl, a freshman, who knew a little about blocking before coming to school, and Hertz, a good line man anywhere.

September 27 saw the Peru Bobcats embarked upon their 1935 football season. Accompanied by a load of enthusiastic sport fans, they journeyed to Maryville, Missouri, for the first game. The enthusiasm was not lessened to any degree by the outcome of the game, although the solitary score giving Peru a 7 to o victory came early in the first quarter before the Missouri tax officials could get the Nebraska immigrants situated.

Chadron, our second conference opponent, presented to the Bobcats a number of conditions for which they could not prepare.

The score gave Peru a 19 to 13 loss, but was founded upon “breaks” and not upon exceptional football.
