CALENDAR The Calendar Committee asks that all requests for special dates desired for any campus organization for both semesters, if possible, be filed with ·Miss Gockley, the Secretary of the Committee, on or before October 21, 1946. In filing your request9 please give first and second choice of dates. Requests must be signed by the president of the organization, also by the faculty sponsor. The Calendar Committee is very desirous that these requests be filed at the above mentioned time for the reasons that it is much more advantageous to assign all dates so that an equal distribution of like events can be made.

Peru College lost its football opener against a flashy Colorado College team at Colorado Springs Friday night, September 20, by 40 to O. The Peru offense was ragged and the backs were unable to shake away from the Colorado tacklers.

The Calendar Committee has arranged the regularly scheduled activities as follows:

Godo blocking and a fast backfield worked well together spark the Colorado College offensive.

VETVILLE The campus now has a suburbVetville, the home of returning G. I.s and their families. This secluded, but impressive, annex is scarcely visible from the main road. The exclusive eleme~t has a dual purpose. It offers privacy and allows the wives and children to check on the hU<sbands and fathers as they practice football on the athletic field nearby. Without terracing, apartments still under construction, i:nud ~nd scattered building material. ly'.ng about Vetville gives the !Illpression of an' unorganized "Boom Town". But with a little imagination and ' an understanding of future plans a model community can be visualized in a very few months.

Just In Case You've Forgotten Some of The Words

Student Ass' n Throws Party To celebrate the close of the first semester and to welcome the beginning of the second, a college get-together was held at the Music Hall Monday evening, January · 29th. Dancing and card playing 1 were the features of the event, un- ; der the chaperonage of Coache~ Wheeler and Riggs and their wives, Mr. Christ and his wife, and Mr. Lo'spich and his wife. Dance arrangements were made by Wanda Nicolas and Walt Elwell. Walt tended tbe muiic machine, and Wanda and Bonnie Aufenkamp handed all comers Semester Swing tags printed with your Lu:cky number. The edi'ion of the free Peruvian was won by Ralf Graham. and Dick Campbell drew the wi~niRg number for second prize-a year's subscription to the Ped-out of Mr. Larson's hat. Wally Cleveland: and Doc Sandin ably MC'd the affair. Refreshments were arranged by Doris Wagner and Punchy Linder, who provided plenty of hot chocolate and doughnuts for everyone. Pleased exclamations floated over the campus after the dance, indicating the approba' ion this first mixer of the new year received. ---n---

Prof es~or Professes Hope for the D Earner AUSTIN, TEXAS - (ACP) Here's an educator who is ready to speak out in the interest of the student who does not bring home such good grades. H€! is Dr. H. T. Manuel, director of the University of Texas Testing and Guidance Brr:eau and director of research for the Texas Commission on Coordination in Education. It's wrong he says, to think that only the most gifted can benefit from higher education. He looks ' with misgivings on the trend of Texas colleges toward more enrollment restrictions and "selectivity" and thinks there ought to be some "coordinating" among the institutions of higher learning befo~e they go too far in that direction. Dr. Manuel recommends that the solution be provision of types of educational opportunity in suffi-'. cient variety and quantity to meet individual and social needs; and then guide students into the opportunities that will serve them be.st. This .mighbmean new programn in esablished schools, or expansion of the so-called vocational schools, he adds.

TOPS IN WAX - Spike Jorie's debuts his "Other Orchestra" on the Victor label. On Minka, ' the "A" side, George Ruck takes some Herbert L. CJark varia .• tions on the trumpet to show his technique and skill, then reverts to corn, Spike Jones a 1a c 1yd e McCoy, in a "Sugar Blues" style of wah-wah. George has been with Spike's City Slickers for the past three years and is a show-stopper wherever the Slickers perform. Eddie Kusby is the star of Lassus Trombone, the reverse, and plays with sur. prisingly , fine tecr.iiique and control. Spike's idea is to present some highly 'musical listening intermingled with subtle humor without fog-horn and cowbell panic.

EFFECT MUSIC - Jewel records makes another impressive series of Boyd Raeburn releases: The Man With The Horn and Hip Boyd's; Prelude To The Dawn and Dude Waddle. These four sides are ~.11 instrumentals and find Raeburn· in still another groove. Raeburn collectors will search for adjectives. others who can take him or leave him will be impi'essed. and the nonlikers will shrug these off. The two "A" sides (Man With The .Horn and Prelude) find big band performance of an extravagant nature, highly. melodic and surprisingly arranged. Both arrangements for these titles were made by Johnny Richards and do justice to the great musical talent within the .band. The "B" sides are purposely 'along the commercial vein, but interesting-and tin<lerstandable.

sparked by the great Basie drummer, Jo Jones. Here is heat enough to last all winter. On the reverse, the Count contrasts with a mild Fla-Ga-LaPa, which songstress Ann Moore warbles (Coluribia). Capitol's newest release offers tbe trumpet and orches\ra of Billy Butterfield on Stardust. The opening is reminiscent cf Billy's previous trumpeting of the famous Carmichael opus for Artie Shaw, The whole s1de contains the Butterfield horn, the first time he has really been hea,rd since the formation of this new bond. Sooner Or Later, the rewrse, spots more of his Hackf'tt-q11ality trumpet and a vocal by Pat O'Connor.

Maybe It s This Way By B. M. H. I have berore me a report from the Na ional Education Association of the United States. Having been acquainted with the Association for many years, I think it was 1932 when I first joined, and having worked as a proof-reader on the Journal, I know from personal experience that the edi'orial policy of the organization includes extreme caution in avoiding any 1possibility of reporting anything that may deviate; even in the slightest degree, from the facts. Therefore, the paragraphs which I am puTsuing bear inescapable evidence of hte reliability of facts h' h d' d d w !C are iscusse ; an those facts are as follows: (PLEASE READ €AREFULLY) "Th - Id -·d . e. wur -wi e reputat10n of th e Umted States for a broad and effective system of. public Education receive~ a Jolt from the 1~40 census. which showed tha' the average citizen of twenty years of age had attended school only nine

"Sufficient education to enable vo'ers to weigh fundemental problems is essential for the survival of popular government. The most penetrating studies of the problems of American government are certainly not made before the end of the first year in high school> And that last sen'ence should be awarded some sort of prize as a remarkable understatement. The bitter truth is that American edll'Cation is becoming a farce as a real force in developing a literate, independen'ly thinking, well informed public. And we must stop living in the rosy aura of a "great educational tradition" and get down to work at educating some people. It is criminal to do otherwise. Self-educa1 ion by a meager few scattered here and there, and the "education in the school of life" · will not suffice in developing the sort of intellectually alert young men and women we want and need to make this a great na'ion. Today we are spending more money maintaining the inmates of penal institutions and the hospitals for mentally and emotionally .11aladjusted than we are spending to .educa'e all of the "normal" school women in the colleges and universities. We must spend more money wisely: thus reducing the ranks of the criminals and the maladjusted, and expanding the ranks of wise and informed and well adjusted young people who know how to solve the ever increasing phoblems of our world. It is the time to do it; the time for talk is past. Good teachers must be provided; no more time servers should be allowed to cloud .the minds and confuse the efforts of the young.

VOLUME XLII .

Around the Campus Colleges Foster Buettgenbaugh By Jesse Rhoten Arts-Sciences , of QUESTION: what do you think the president's proposed loan Mav Attend Peru to Greece and Turkey?

Petition is Circulated Among College Students in Four Teacher Colleges.

NUMBER 13

PERU, NEBRASKA, TUESDAY, APRIL 8, 1947

JIM STEELE . The consequences of our negotiation of a huge loan to Turkey and Greece are many and farreaching. Sensibly administered, it would be a force of good; flung thoughtlessly into the economic set-up it could fan the flames of communism and strengthen those already too strong. Assuming that these conditions can be met, we can only believe in and approve of a plan that will aid the less fortunate peoples of the world. The argument that Mr. Truman's plan is one that assumes the work of the U. N. and undermines the authority andJ integrity of that body is, I believe, ill-founded and discourteous.

Competing against the top track stars of the nation the Bobcat tracksters grabbed two fifth places and a second in the Kansas Relays April 19, at Lawrence, Kansas. Orv. Yokum, the outstanding -discus thrower in the state, heaved the platter 142 ft. to win a second place berth. The sprint medley relay team of Mather, Walden, Luce, and Lavigne earned a fifth spot and the 880 relay quartet of Holscher, Lavigne, Mather, and Walden edged into a fifth position.

Newman Club

THE HlGH l::>UliUUL lVlA>:>l:>.!!.iD BA.ND Earlier this spring Peru State_ was host to the high school bands of this section in a day-long music clinic which culminated in a full length public performance.

At the time, because of printing and engraving difficulties, the Ped was unable to print the cut of the assembled band, but, with apologies for its tardiness, we are taking this opportunity to.· run the picture. We feel that Ped readers will recall with pleasure the experience the band, under the inspir-, ing direction of Mr. Joder of Chicago, afforded the concert goers at that date.

. Officers for next year have been elected by the m.embers of t~e Newman Club. Wilbur Egge w1ll preside, Don Day will act as vicepresident, Mary Lou Genoa as secretary, and R91Jert Good as treasurer. . A much larger enrollment IS indicated next year. Programs will include speakers, movies, and discussions. Newman Club will meet this summer, under the direction of a temporary president.

.

A short time ago Dick, (Slugger, to some) one of Peru's best athletes and very popular man about the campus become too ill to finish the term; and so he had to leave just before the round of parties and pageants, dances and fetes which are so much a part of collegians' graduating. Members of the Ped staff, and all the students hope that Dick Pascal will make a rapid, strong recovery. YOU VE PLAYED A FINE GAME, SLUGGER.

Bobc:at Donor Visits Campus Mr. and Mrs. George Hansen of Phoenix, Arizona, both P. S. T. C. grads. arrived here Monday for a family reunion and a visit on the campus. Mr. Hansen, who sent the original bobcat which is now stuffed and in the trophy room, received his B. E. and A. B. degrees here in 1916 and 1921 respectively, and taught summer school here for seven years.

Red Writes Sport fans in this territory will have a chance to see one of the greatest track meets of the year July 4 and 5 at Lincoln, Nebraska. The A. A. U. meet will have a touch of local color with Peru grad, Orv Yocum, entered in the discus event. Yocum will compete in the junior division July 4. If he should happen to turn in a top performance that day, he will be eligible for the senior division on July 5. The greatest thin-clads in the country are entered in the A. A. U. Gil Dodd~, "The Flying Parson" from Falls City, will headline the mile run. Bob Fitch, University of Minnesota grad, will. be out to beat his own world's discus record. Mel Patton, U. S. c. sprinter, 'is the top man in the dashes. I could go on for another half hour naming great . . . athletes who have entered the A. A. U., but this will at least give you an idea ot the quality of this track meet.

Mr. and Mrs. Arthur L. Kermoade, Jr., have come the greatest distance to be our Vetville neighbors. They come from Peoria,, Ill., where Mr. Kermoade has been attending Bradlay University this past year. The Kermoades report that they had more than their share of difficulties in getting to Peru, having been caught in two of the recent Iowa floods. North of Afton, Iowa, the car was washed off the road; by the swift water crossing the road. They survived this incident and had to turn back at Corning, Iowa, and spend the night at Creston, while waiting for the flood in the area to recede. Mr. Kermoade attended P. S. T. C. in '40-'41 after which he spent five years in the Coast Guard before going to Peoria.· Mrs! Kermoade is the former Miss Helen Rutledge of Brock, Nebr.
