Peru ran, tossed, and jumped over Wesleyan in the Bobcats' last dual meet by a 72-54 count. Riggs, as usual, dominated the field.
The N. I. fl. ft. Conference meet found Peru collecting 32 points for third place. Riggs gathored 13 points in his three pet dash events, while Ludington won a first in the 883. Greathouse won the high jump and was second in the discus. Stark was second in the high jump.
The Cats lost to Maryville in the first meet of the '38 season. Turner tied for first in the 100 yard dash. Other firsts were Stark in the 440, Mosely in the discus. Greathouse tied for first in the broad jump, and McHugh and Walker tied for first and second in the pole vault.
PERU SPLASHERS DROP TWO MEETS
Peru's initial attempt at a swimming team brought two defeats and a groat deal of experience to Bobcat splashers.
The two meets were with Hastings, and lack of experience spelled defeat for Peru. Coach Gilkeson has been able to give the fundamentals a good working over and Peru should expect a fair squad next year.
Members of the team wore: Ray Kellogg, Roy Kellogg, Bill Mooney. Elmon Velvick, Keith McHugh, Elmer Clarey, John Boyer, and Billy Dona-hoe.

'37 TRACK SEASON FAIR
Peru closed the 1937 track season with few regrets, and ranked third in the N. I. A. A.
Wayne Riggs of Shubert was the man of the season, scoring thirteen points in the N. I. A. A. tournament. He trailed Bradford of Wayne for individual honors. Other lettermen were: Hall, Omaha; Lytton, Fairbury; Hoban, Kansas; Greathouse, Ord; Bailey, DcWitt; McCormick, Syracuse; Stark, Bedford, Iowa; Shafer, Auburn; Mosely, Ong; and Turner, DuBois.
The first meet of the year was a dual meet with Maryville, Missouri, and Peru failed to match the flying heels of the brawny men from the south. The final score was 94 to 40. The meet was featured by a dual botween Neil of Maryville (national hop-step-jump contender) and Riggs of Peru. They both stretched out over 24 feet in the broad jump.
The next meet was with Tarkio, Missouri, and the Cats again lost. The contest was close, the score being 73-62. Riggs, Platenburg, Stark, and Ludington all won firsts. However, team power gathered too many points for Tarkio.
The Bobcat delegation at the Hastings Invitational found Riggs the only man to place. He gathered a second in the 100-yard dash.

Collins House Squad—Intramural Baskotball Champs.
LARGE INTRAMURAL PROGRAM ENJOYED BY PERUVIANS
The largest and most complete intramural program in Poru's history was undertaken this year. Swimming, volleyball, track, handball, softball and baskotball were included in the program announced by Coach Gilkeson.
Over 100 boys, representing 8 teams, took part in the various sports.
Chief emphasis was on basketball, in which the Collin House team landed on top after a slow start. Reiffs and Dahlstrom’s faltered after an early season lead and slipped into a tie for second place.
Volleyball ended with the tall Parrish "spikers" de-
feating Roiff's in a play-off game. Wearo's finished in third place.
fin added touch to non-intercollcgiato contests this year was the fine showing of pugilist LoRoy Durst in the Golden Gloves tournament. Durst ontered in the welter-weight division, left a trail of knock-outs behind him as he punched his way to the finals of Omaha's tournament. However, he was out-pointed in the finals, losing to Vic Marker of Scottsbluff by a decision.
GIRLS' PEP SQUAD DRILLS AT GAMES
The Girls' Pep Squad, which is sponsored by the W.fl.fl.. presented many colorful and intricate drills between halves of baskotball games. Members of the squad were drossod in the traditional blue and white with Bobcats emblazoned on their sweaters.
