With great pleasure we dedicate the 1952 Peruvian to Professor Victor H. Jindra. Mr. Jindra is respected and admired by Etudents and faculty for his interest in their welfare and his devotion to the advancement of Peru. It is truly his philosophy to "give to your school the best that you have, and the best will come back to you." Mr. Jindra graduated from the University of Nebraska with a Phi Beta Kappa Honor Key. He majored in mathematics and music. He started his teaching in a rural school and later was Superin-

tendent of Schools at Brainard and Firth. Music kept uppermost in his mterests. He aHended summer schools at the Chicago Music College-specializing in study of the violin. In 1923 Mr. Jindra came to Peru as instructor of mathematics and music. Music gradually took all of his time. and now he has the orchestra. stringed instruments. and classes in music appreciation and history. He will be remembered as the tall artist of the bow and string who "fiddles" away his time.



Mr. C. A. Huck left his teaching position with the college in September. 1951 after twenty-eight years as mathematics instructor and supervisor. He now devotes his time to insurance and real estate business. Mr. Huck is an advocator of life as a mathematical process. Wood turning and radio repair are his hobbies. His friendliness and interest in the students and activities of the college will long be remembered.

Mr. Neal S. Gomon come to th e Peru faculty in 1950 as acting head o f the English Departmen t. A t th e beginning of th e fa ll term of 1951 he was mod e presiden t of N ebroska S t a t e T eachers College at Peru to rep l ace D r. Wayne 0. Reed. I n this first year he has endeared h i mself to all Peruvians by his enthusiast ic service. Mr. Gomon is respected and admired by all for h is friendly and sincere manner. He has p roved his ver satili ty in speeches at convocation and his ability as a pianist.

Probably the finest crop of Freshman athletes in the history of the Fighting Bobcats made up the bulk of the Peru roster. But the championship spirit and fight was inspired by nine seniors with but one thought in mind . to regain what was rightfully the irs. It is to these nine seniors- Dell Miller, Bill Gilmore, Bill Vacek, LeRoy Wilson, Wilbur Scheitel, Roland Be ra n, Bob Ryan, Dean The isfeld, and Cecil McKnight-that w e now pay our tribute . Expe rts had rated the Cats to finish near the conference cellar. Peru served notice of the ir intentions by slamming heavily favored Doa ne. The Bobcats h ad . scored 14 points on the defending champions b efore the Tom Hopkins game was three minutes old. The Peruvians reached th e ir peak near the close of the season when they surprised the country by beating nationally ranked East Ne w Mexico State. The Greyhounds were one of the 27 undefeated teams of the nation before their ro ug h and tumble m eeting with Peru, Nebraska College Champions.

It's been a long winter for basketball fans and pluy8rs on the Peru campus. For many who watched the Bobcats lose for the first time on their home floor it was diHicult to arcept defeat gracefully. To the casual observer confusion seemed to reign in the uwally smooth Peru oHensive machine. Although the young Bobcats were inexperienced and excitable, near the close of the campaign they did mirror the fight and fire brand basketball which has made Peru nationally known for the past three years. In spite of the mediocre season suHered by Coach Newt Kyle and his crew the outlook for next year, discounting severe losses to the armed service, is considerably brighter. Nine oul of len lettermen will return. Of these nine returning players a ll saw duty on the Bobcat starting five. Three freshmen , one sophomore, five juniors, and one senior made up the roster of numeral winners. Don Bornschlegl, lone senior member, enjoyed his highest scoring season of his colorful career. Bw ney dumped in 504 points to bring h is college total to 1465 tol\ies. He was chosen two years All Nebraska College Conference forward.

Since this book will go to press before the track and 路. field season oHicially opens it would be impossible to give much on the Bobcat fortunes. But from advance , indications of spirit and work the Blue and W hite sh ould fly near the lop of the NCC flag staH. Coach Newt Kyle and his thin clads traveled to Lincoln late in Ma rch to compete in the first a nnual NCC indoor meet. The learn brought home fifth place from this meet. Peru's hopes of a successful track and field season will rest on the shoulders of several freshma n cinder artists, backed up by such veterans as Wilb Schiele], LaVon Covault takes a breather between LaVon Covault. Don Wendt, Bob Lade, Ken Urwin, and pole vaults during practice. Ha rvey !deus. This is Coach Newt Kyle's fifth year as h ead basketball and track coach on the campus of the thousand oaks, and although it was his most unsuccessful basketball year, it promises to be one of his b est in track and field. In addition to winning numerals and fame Peru athletes also gain valuahle experience in the coa ching fields by observing an e xcellen t coach ing s taH ir: action and making corrections on their teammates.
