PERU 0—DOANE 12
PERU 6—MARYVILLE 6
The Peru Bobcats opened the season by crossing the river and fighting it out on the Missouri territory. The game was ragged and showed signs of early season play.
Maryville jumped into an early lead via the air route. They were unable to gain through the Peru line so in the third quarter wont back to their guns. Fireworks started when Velvick stepped in to intercept and jaunt for Peru's tally. Both try-for-points failed.
Game Captain Joel Punches led the Peru attack in his usual charging fashion and was given- able support by Bert Hall and Dale Bridgewater.
Too much Sloey proved disastrous for Peru as the Doane Tigers defeated the Cals 12-0.
Peru fought the Tigers on even terms until Buck started spreading out the Peru defense with some nice passing, fit that point Sloey took charge and started cavorting around end. Sloey. one of the outstanding backs in the state, outfoxed the Peru ends on every punt return.
Peru substitutes wont the length of the field in the closing quarter, but were stopped on the 5 yard line by the gun.
Captain George Mort, along with Wilber Shields and Joel Punches, led the Peru attack.

Coach Gilkeson (on the left) coached swimming team. This year was pete with other schools in swimming.
"Gilk” is a strong believer in the system of intramurals—or a sport for ev one. He has built up Peru's athletic department to a point where his desire for sport for everyone is becoming a realization. Swimming, basketball, volley ball! hand ball, tennis, track, kitten ball, boxing, wrestling, and ping pong are now enjoyed by almost every Peru Student.
Coach Stuart Bailer made history by turning out the N. I. fl. ft. championship basketball squad.
Little needs to be said about Peru's five court record—the scores sj eak for themselves. But plenty should be said about the fine coaching, conditioning and leadership that the Bobcats enjoyed. "Stu” has proved his right for leadership in basketball coaching circles.
Joel Punches (in the middle) was chosen 1937 football captain—an honor he justly deserved. Joel, who lettered as a freshman, played four years of aggressive football for the Bobcats.
“Joe” hails from Wymore where he starred for the "Zephyrs” in many games, fl fine personality made him the favorite player among squad members, while his never-give-in playing won the hearts of the fans. He was chosen on many all-state selections in both his junior and senior years.

PERU 0—MIDLAND 13
PERU 7—WESLEYAN G
Midland celebrated its Parents Day by drubbing the Peru Bobcats 13-0. The game was the muddiest tussle of the year for the Bobcats.
The game opened with Midland shoving Peru around but failing to get near pay dirt in the first quarter. However, in the second quarter the Warriors took advantage of the breaks and sloshed down the field to a touchdown. The play then settled back to give-and-take until the third quarter. In this quarter Midland's Warriors brought the sodden spectators to their feet when the mighty Mid-landers flipped a short pass over the lino for their second and final touchdown.
Homecoming fans watched a band of bedraggled Cats punt their way to victory over the Wesleyan Plainsmen. The game, which was a Homecoming feature, was played in a constant rain.
Peru jumped into the game with a roar and started down the field, with Platenberg showing the way. V hon "Platt" injured his ankle. Game Captain Shields took over and crashed his way down the field for the touchdown. Stark plunged over for the point that later meant victory.
Wesleyan scored on a looping pass—but failed in their try-for-point attempt.
From then on, the game rested on the muddy toe of Tommy Major's cleated shoe.
