Summer. 1940, our flag was at holf -mast for beloved veteran Dean W . N. Dalzell. We wistfully dropped anchor and wavod good-bye to Ralp h Sellhorn, C. J=l .

TRAINING SCHOOL THE TRfliNING SCHOOL Where first swaths are cut in the field of teaching. Students directed by supervisors get the first real taste of teaching after spending hours in preparation on theory and practice. Here college students have an opportunity to work out "pet ideas," to get the important teacher-pupil contact, and to pick up additional material in the art of teaching by actual contact with that field. This is not an extra ordinary institution but a place where actual pupils carry on the various phases o f high school life-athletic, ::Icademic, or music.

Dramatic Club activities were off with a bang and a whizz of g r ease pai nt as the H omecoming crows saw, "Petrified Forest" by Sherwood. Featuring v eterans, K insey, Sandin, and Karr, it introduced newcomers Dunlap, in a super b performance as Boz, W arr en Bol lme i e r, as Gramp; with Everett, Henderson, C. Jones, Hays, Drexle r , Busenbarrick and o ther s. For the first time Dramatic club threw itself open to all who were int erested an d invited them to a picnic at Neal Park which fea tured weiners, mar shmal lows, coffee, a nd e nte r tain ment for everyone. Wi th the leving of Prexy Miller for a ir-school, Vice-Prexy N . E. Jones took over the r ein s as the year's activities got into full swing. Answ eri ng the call to ini tiation banque t old ti mers h i ssed, booed and laughed a t the antics of the " numbers" or ini tiates , who had horse races, san g solos, gave techniques, and pan tomimed 'm os t any request' to prove themselves real spo rts for the "duration."

CHORUS In 1940-4 1 Perusingers and director G . Holt Steck kept on being different and getting away wi th it. Nobody " tryed out" for choir, and nobody " j oined," because the 70-odd singers r eporting in the fa ll weeded ou t themselves, I e a vi n g those who caught on eagerl y to Pop's "mixed up" arrangemen t, acquired the "alterna te listening habit" and sang because they couldn' t help it. Nobody rapped the stand for a ttention, but som ehow every singer listened when Pop said, "That lacks, like ~ pair of uncreased trousers :::md suggested ways to fix it.

BAND A stiff October breeze whipped three brilliant flags and for ty white plumes as the P . S. T. marching band stepped out for mid-game drill Homeco ming Day.


Uniformed in gold buttoned royal blue with tall shakos, eight ranks of p rancing musicians maneuvered behind champion drum majorette Mar y Grovenburg, making their debut as exp o nents of music-on-the-move. Early in September under the leader ship of Jim Crawford, s tuden t direc tor. th e gang turned out for pre-breakfast p ractice three times a week. Meanw hile, Prof. V i ctor H . Ji ndra a nd Pres. W. R. Pate burned mid night oil over columns o f figu res, a nd representatives of band outfi t ting compani es beat a path to Music Hall doors. Net resul t: 42 complete unifor ms. Band Flag Day members sold over thi r ty dollars worth of booster tags to he lp buy national. state, and college flags for the color guard. Marching season was climaxed by performance at the Peru-Chadron grid fray on Thanksgiving Day . In a concert season interspersed with pep:;tering at basketball games, M r . Jindra p resented an all student d irected program . March 10 the long 'n lean conductor, unifor med in disti n gu ished white, led m local concert numbers such as " Headlines," Ravel's " Bolero " and " Prayer a nd Dream Panom ime" from " Hansel and Gretel.

"Bobcats Bag N. I. A. A. Title with a 26-0 upset." Those were the headl ines that topped all newspapers in the college circle o f football, when the Than ksgiving day post-season game between the Bobcats of Peru and The Chadron Eagles was held on neu tral sod at Ryder Park at Grand Island. Coach Al Wheeler and Art Jones gave the call to the summer tanned boys who s lowly turned to the early season workouts in the early month of September little realizing that an undefeated rank would be upon them at the close of the Bobcat season. Although Al Wheeler's iirst year on this campus met with few victories his record for th e past two seasons, '39-'40, can hardly be looked upon as mere happenings. The squad this year was, without doubt, one of the lighest teams that Peru State had had. It was wi th this light team including nine lettermen that coaches Al and Art started to bui ld . It was a job based upon hardship and many difficulties along with high spirits of Bobcatisman, hard wo rk, and clean ball. Coaches Wheeler's and Jones' Philosophy of the g ridiron sport is the basis for the de term ina tion of their tutored teams. On their teams there is no such thing as a first man for a posi lion, if there is a first man it is only with the fellow who puts himself there. On a winning team, or any team, it isn't the first eleven men who makes up the squad, it's the fellows on the ball club, the entire bunch, combined with reserve strength willing to light at any time fo r the bette rmen t of their club and for the victory of the team. It is the hope of all coaches that at any ti me there is an injury or any mishap of any kind the coach can look his boys over and feel tha t any one he calls for will do his best at the job assigned to him. This is the spirit that the boys coached by Wheeler and Jones seem to feel when their turn comes to battle the Bobcat way. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SEASON IN REVIEW: Snaps o f words of the happenings of the season that made the Bobcats the top team in the state of Nebraska . In the York game Peru d rove for a touchdown on their first play of the season-the holding of York when they had three downs to make a touchdown and when they were stopped- Floyd making a touchdown by recovering a kickoff behind the goalline. Sixty minutes of play netted the score of PERU 50-YORK 0. In the Doane game the PERU 20- DO.flNE 6 score wasn't enough, the pep sq uad had to show the tigers how a team should be cheered. It was the MIDLAND 0-PERU 14 battle that should never be forgotten ; Peru s topped the visitors five times when they had a first down and goal to go- Mcinti re, Organ and Floyd tackli n g on fourth downs to throw the Midland offensive back- Mason's perfect extra poin ts -Linder's injury in one of those goal line stands-Atwood's to uchdown on the clever End-around playFloyd blocking a punt and recovering to set up the first touchdown.

Pa<1c E1'Jhty o;ig h t

COACHES AND TEAM It was the conference opener and all the boys had to do was to get Mather in the opening to send him 35 yards on a touchdown jaunt-Dougherty making a touchdown as the battling Bobcats struck hard fighting themselves to exhaustion in order to conquer their fourth victim the Kearney Antelopes. Scoreboard read as a finale PERU 20--KEflRNEY 6.

The Bobcats get in some fast action during the Wayne game.

It was a scrappy Bobcat outfit that hit the season of '40- '41 with only two l e ttermen of the previous season and a few pas t season's subs Wheeler-Jones s tarted out w ith a handful of freshmen to start a season of rugged games. No victory of the N. I. A. A. nor a trip to the National Tournament at Kansas City but bit victories over the University of Mexico, Kearney, Wesleyan, Midland, Doane, and the strong Culver-Stockton five from Missouri. Jack Mcinti re, high poin t man on the squad was chosen as first guard on the all-state basketball team of the year. Hannah, the boy who r aised the hopes by returning the second semester, placed on second team at guard. Cec Walker, no doubt the smallest and the fastest forward in t he state, headed the list on the honorable mention team . " Chuck" Hiatt, Peru's great freshman forward, a long with Walker hit the Honorable Mention list. "Buzz" Beyers can be given credit for being the player who most improved himself during the season. Buzz started the season at guard but didn't find himself until he was shifted to for ward where he became one of the main cogs in Peruvian's teamsters.

Bobcats g et off to a good start in a game full of thrills and spills. - - - Wayne v s. Peru.

Two of these freshmen who could be given pages on their type of ball playing and on their spirit toward upholding the lighting type of Bobcat basketball are "Zeke" Grubaugh and "Slug" Pascal. These two boys played forward and guard respectively. Grubaugh hit the forward position the first day and held down the position the entire season, playing his fast accurate type of ball. His passing, dribbling, and accurate shooting will highlight his next three years at Peru State. Pascal fitted the guard position in top rank, playing the spot in top shape even after Hannah's return. Slup with his type of ball can easily be predicted to eventually step into the spot left by Peru's great guard Bailey.

Other standbys on the team are Mason , Heugel, "Squire" Handley, Meyers, Mathews, and Dunn. With this te am the Bobcats became the objective of every team in the state, but returned the score for score games w ith a 50 per cent s tanding for the season. This year's precedent was upheld by ihe Peru basketeers as in past years by upholding the standard type of ball that the Wheelermen have p layed in the past seasons. This team was b acked by the whole student body who pushed the teams in v ictories or defeats.

The sixth victory for Peru came to being when the Midland gang fell to the side in a close game. The lead was juggled back and forth many times during the game, but the Wheelermen headed by Mcintire and Walker soon put the game on ice with bucket upon bucket followed by the strong defense set up by the 'Cats. This made the team's four th win in s tate competition.

Before a mad raving crowd the thri llet of the year was produced when the 'Cats w ent down fighti n g e ve ry inch of the way in a long overtime period .

A cold 'Cat team was found to travel slow when the driving Wayne cagers begin to h it. Grubaugh and Mcintire kept the 'Cats b tlsy in shooting but couldn't find the basket.

All fellows were classified and then divided up in to teams by the team managers. This gave each team a cert ain amount of talent and kept the games more on on even keel. Extending throughout the winter months the boys kept the gym ringing Vlith fast ball toting through the supper hour and late evening. After it was all over CHAMPS was team F composed of McAlexander, Norton, Chandler, M. Hall. R. Hall, Dreeszen, Gorthy, and Slagle. Intramurals were ably directed by Student Huber under Coach Jones.

Membership in P club is the ambition of every loyal Peruvian athlete, because it signifies winning the coveted P in some sport. With competition in the fields of sport becom ing stiffer every year it is indeed an honor to be set upon as a goal. P-club sponsored the freshmen initiation, saw to it that the freshies toed the mark in the first few weeks at school. They promoted a feeling ol "good sportsmanship" among the fellows on the teams and people in general. When the stands began to fill up and seats were few and far between, you could count on a P-club member finding one for you. At Homecoming this group e lected Grid Queen Margery Ann Kinsey and proved their adeptness as judges of the fairer sex as well as judges of expertness in athletes.

Grand captain s, Bouse, Peterson, Carmine, and Benson set up the p lay for a "strike" W. A. A. season du ring 1940-'4 1. The play of the season allowed each g irl to run the diamond starting at "hitpin home", running to "basketball first", s tealing into "volley-ball second" and finally s liding into "soccer third." Each base offered a possibi lity of 110 points. "Time out" w as taken for cabin s u p路 pers, and Christmas banqu eting. Girls consider the biggest achievement to be the obtaining o f their o wn special room u p in the upper rooms of the gymnasium. This they will convert into a game room. Equipment will include archery, ping-pong, and shuffle board.
