Greathouse Majors Volvick FOOTBALL—1937 PERU 0—HASTINGS 20 fl socond-half lot-down spelled disaster for a fumbling Bobcat crew on its annual tilt with the Hastings Bronchos. Hastings, N.C.A.C. champs, presented a rangy band of players who knew how to take advantage of the breaks. Outstanding was the ninety yard march they made on two successive punts. Both punts were fumbled by Peru backs and in each case Hastings recovered. The "punt drive" ended with a touchdown for the Broncs. Peru, led by Shields and Game Captain Punches, played Hastings on oven terms as far as first down and yardage were concerned. However, passes and fumbles marred the day for the Bobcats. PERU 13—TARKIO 7 Thanksgiving wishes were answered when the Bobcats pounced on the Tarkio Owls (in place of turkey) and won a 13-7 victory. Tarkio, Missouri College champs, were hardly a match for the well-clicking Peru team, fl flurry of passes in the last quarter almost scored for the Owls, but Ritter, freshman center, saved the day by intercepting a pass on his own five yard line. Bert Hall scored the first touchdown on a pass from Shields. Shields later plunged over for the winning touchdown. Hall, Shields, Ritter, and Majors were outstanding for the Bobcats.

Adams McGinley Bridgewater Nelson FOOTBALL—1937 PERU 0—KEARNEY 14 A fighting Bobcat team fell before the wide sweeps of the Kearney Antelopes by a 14-0 verdict. Kearney, eager to repeat their '36 triumph, found a pile-driving Peru team resisting every inch of the way. Peru's line charged with a will, but neither backs nor linemen could keep the Kearney sweeps and off-tackle plays from gaining ground. Both touchdowns came as the result of blocked punts. At other times Kearney found the Bobcats presenting too strong a line for touchdowns. Eldred Douglas, Johnnie Green, and Keith McHugh looked best for the Bobcat squad, while Punches was acting captain. PERU 20—WAYNE 24 The wildest game of the year thrilled a large crowd as the Bobcats lost to Wayne 24-20. Wayne jumped into an early lead whon they blocked a punt and intercepted a pass to get into a 12-0 lead. Stark went around end, and then a forward-lateral and another pass put Peru on the long end of a 20-12 score. The second half was all Wayne, with Bradford passing to make the score 20-18 and Fox bringing the crowd to its feet by running a punt back eighty yards to win the game 24-20.

AND MYTHICAL STATE TITLES Peru Bobcats, leading Nebraska college quintet, finished the ‘38 season with 16 victories in 19 games. The N. 1. ft. A. title and the mythical state title were conferred upon the Bobcats by Nebraska sports writers. The first Bobcat victory was a breather with the Dunbar town team and the final victory a thrilling 48-46 win over Wayne. Peru journeyed to Kansas City and the National Intercollegiate tournament, but lost in the first round to Marshall College, V est Virginia, 67-60. Dean McCormick and Orval Pugh, the only two seniors on the squad, were chosen as co-captains for the '38 season. McCormick, towering six foot four inch center, gained state wide recognition as the key man in Peru's offense and defense. "Slim” was chosen on several all-opponent teams. Pugh was the calmer on Peru's team and his deliberate playing toned down the Cats when tho going became rough. "Orv's" gracofulnoss won the acclaim of Peru fans. Other members of the starting line-up included: Leonard Greathouse, sophomore, was one of the tall boys of the squad. “Big Mansion” won fame by his general fine playing and his "dead-eyeing” from an over-head position. Bob Halladay, sophomore forward, was chosen on the all-conference team. Bob, a two-year man, was the leading scorer of the Bobcat squad. Russell "Ding” Bailey, junior guard, was the outstanding guard in the state and was chosen on tho all-conference team. PERU 42. NEBRASKA B 29. The Nebraska Nubbins came to Peru with a fino early season record and high hopes for a victorious season. However, the Bobcats had a husking bee and took a 42-29 victory. Greathouse collected 25 points to gain scoring honors. PERU 52. LINCOLN WOODMEN 39. Ex-stars from Nebraska and Nebraska Wesleyan gave the Bobcats a furious battle for IS minutes of the first half, but from then on it was, all Peru, with tho entire Bobcat squad seeing action. PERU 48. WESLEYAN 41. The loss of McCormick was almost fatal and Peru barely edged out the fighting Plainsmen by 7 points. Wesleyan, the underdog, played the Bobcats on even terms until the last five minutes of play. Then the Bobcat machine began to click and pulled slowly away from the Wesleyan aggregation. Howard Dean broadcast the game over KMA of Shenandoah. Iowa. PERU 56. HASTINGS 33. Tho Bobcats took to the road and hit the top by Bronc-busting Hastings 56-33. McCormick soared to new fame by out-playing Marvel, towering Hastings center, in every department of the game. Greathouse became a popular player with Hastings fans when he gave the Broncs an exhibition of over-head shooting. PAGE NINETY-SIX
