New G. I. Bill Education Program The nation's 1,200 university and college newspapers, magazines and other publications have been asked to join the Veterans Administration in a saturation campaign to acquaint every veteran-student with all details of the payment procedures of the new G.I. Bill's education program. The VA cautions that the veteran going to school should be prepared to pay his expenses for at least two months. The law requires that, except for the first month of attendance at institutions of higher learning, monthly certificates of attendance signed by veterans be sent DR. JAMES E.

Dr. Manley Speaks Of Nebraska Dr. Robert N. Manley entertained a near-capacity audience Tuesday evening, Sept. 27 in the college auditorium with his presentation, "A Salute to NEBRASKAland." He utilized folk ballads and color slides to depict the saga of the state's history. Accompanying himself on the guitar, Dr. Manley told the colorful, sometimes tragic, stvry of the pioneers. The program was spiced with humorous anecdotes and unusual legends. He pointed out that Wild Bill Hickcock, originally "Duck Bill,'' committed his first murder in Jefferson county. Among the local points of interest he mentioned were the Lewis and Clark marker at Rulo, the J. Sterling Morton estate in Nebraska City, and the .Honey Creek Coal Mine outside Peru. He commended Brownville, home of the notorious Jesse James, on its recent restoration endeavors. He told of the numerous trails, the unlikely-lvoking cowboys, the political songs, tile Indian trouble, and, of course, the covered wagons. He offered the windmill as the true symbol of the "hardship and promise" of pioneering the Great American Desert. Dr. Manley emphasized the integral role the American Negro

Variety Spices Variety Show involved Mr. John Lewis, Peru banker, and Mr. John Clark, history instructor, studying a map of Missouri navigation. Others include.d Lowell Brown and David Shuey, Nancy Guilliatt and Allan "Sully" Sullivan, Barbara Aylsworth and Erik Foged, and Kathy Downing and Phil Herbster. Mr. Elmer Nemec and Marie Ballue appeared as two Hungarian touring musicians. The River Boatmates, as they called themselves, offered a comedy sketch wi~h tuba, clarinet, and tambourine interludes. Shirley Pratt, freshman from Cook, demonstrated two outstanding baton twirling routines. She placed fourth in state competition last year. Bob Lierz and Bill Anderson appeared as The Brothers None with a thoroughly entertaining comedy routine. Then Gloria Dasher perfvrmed a lively tap dance.

played in the molding of the state's heritage. He also mentioned the importance of the Czechs and Bohemians and the Mormons. Dr. Manley felt that the impact of the Missouri River on Nebraska's history cannot be over-emphasized. As a history professor, he attempted to dispel the theory that Nebraska is merely "the long, dry place between where you are and where you're going." As an enthusiastic tourist, he attempted to awaken .Nebraskans to the beauty and heritage of their state. Recently Dr. Manley has finished making a series, "Our Heritage," for educational t_elevision. Dr. Manley was graduated from Elmhurst College in Illinois. Before receiving his masters degree from the University of Nebraska and his Ph.D. in 1962, he taught high school, coached, and played semi-pro baseball. He served as assistant professor of history at Nebraska until he accepted his present position as chairman of the division of social sciences,at Hiram Scott.

Homecoming Play Is Cast The cast of the Homecoming play "Spoon River Anthology," under the directivn of Mr. Robert D. Moore, has been chosen and is now in rehearsal. The play was written by Edgar Lee Masters, who was prompted to write it after visiting a graveyard in a neighboring town. As he studied the names on the rombstones, he visualized the type of persons buried there aJ1d attempted to reproduce these imaginary persons in "Spoon River." At that time there was considerable controversy about the moral values of city dwellers and Mr. Masters proceeded to show that the same type of persons exist in the small town as well as in the large city. The play was adapted for the stage by Charles Aidman and first produced at the Booth Theater in New York City. The following cast and understudies were chosen by Mr. Moore: Actor No. 1-Mike Toscano of Council Bluffs, Iowa. Actress No. 2-Joan Bretthorst of Dunbar. Actor No. 3-'Don Dodge of Nebraska City. Actress No. 4-Diane Morrison of Bea trice. Turn to page 4, column 4

Ped Features Campus Organizations This year each publication of the Ped will feature an organization on campus. The group spotlighted this time is the Student Governing Association, common-. ly known as the SGA. The purpose of the SGA is to coordinate the efforts of the · students and · faculty for the best interests of the College. The SGA is the students, voice on the "campus of a thousand oaks." The association is made up of representatives from student organizations; classes, and the president and vicepresident. Annually, the SGA sponsors many activities and events for the ·student body. Thus far this year the SGA has sponsored all events concerned with Freshman Initiation including the Melon Feed, Clash Day, the School Picnic, and the All-College Mixe.r. The big event ·sponsored by the SGA' '.is Homecoming. This includes the election of the queen, the Homecoming Dance and the judging of the organizational displays. This being the Centennial year, the SGA has invited all •past •Homecoming queens to be present ·at all Homecoming activities. Boosting school spirit is ·one of the ·SGA's prime concerns and its members are currently working on several innovations to keep ·school spirit at its besf iby sponsoring events on week-ends: Other more serious duties of the SGA include evaluating the programs of other organizations, assisting with some problem$ of student conduct and morale, providing student representatives on several college committees, supporting college-wide activities, and sponsoring certain · all-college events. The membership of the SGA consists of 22 members--14 from organizations, one from each upper class (senior, junior, sophomore), and three members from the .freshman class-and t w o sponsors. All members and sponsors are duly elected annually. This year the president is Ronald J. Kroll. Other officers. include Patrick L. Venditte, vice-president and Mary Mowry, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Albert Brady and Miss Bonnie Rutz are cosponsors of the group. Organizational representatives elected last spring are: Janice

Watch Out For Kissing Disease As millions of students return to classes, school and college physicians and nurses soon will be faced with long lines of young men and. women complaining of feeling tired and listless and having other difficult-to-pin-down symptoms. Some students will simply be suffering from laziness. But many others will have a legitimate reason for "back-to-scho0l slump"-infectious mononucleosis-a common back-to-school disease which in the past has been more difficult to diagnose than to treat. A theory that "mono" is transmitted by close personal contact has led college students to romantically call it the "kissing disease." Yet, when it strikes, infectious mononucleosis can be one of the most miserable experiences in a student's life. Recovery can be slow and every day lost from school can endanger marks and play havoc with education plans. Now, experts have found that it can be an indicator of emotional stress. Recent studies conducted by the Tulane University School of Social Work in New Orleans revealed that h igh school and college students who were being treated for mono were momentarily depressed at the time they became ill. Thus, mono bcomes a trigger for dropouts, an excuse for failing to repeat a year, a last straw for requesting medical excuses for postponement of examinations. In addition, mono is also a serious problem because of its ability to mimic other ailments including appendicitis and hepatitis. One authority, in fact, reports that no fewer than 29 separate maladies can be mistaken for mono if diagnostic procedures are imprecise. These ailments may call for exploratory surgery to verify or potent drugs to treat, while the usual treatment f 0 r mono is three to six weeks bed rest, aspirin and gargles. Therefore, because of the possibility of a mono patient being subjected to the risk of being

diagnosed and treated incorrectly, physicians have been searching for a quick and accurate test to confirm or rule out the disease. The Tulane study further indicates the need for early de-· tection of the disease since postponement of needed bed rest adds to the stress and makes for emotional as well as physical complications. This year, however, it will be less difficult for school health offic~als to tell whether a listless student is discouraged about his exams, malingering, seriously ill, or another victim of mono. Pharmaceutical research has come up with an important new development--'the "Mono-Test"-a simple, inexpensive diagnostic test which quickly, and happily for the patient, .reveals the presence of mono in only two minutes. Using the new test, physicians can now immediately order bed rest ·and spare the patient further diagnostic procedures and delay in treatment. With the new "Mono-Test" diagnostic blood-testing for mono becomes readily accessible. "Mono-Test" is distributed by Wampole Laboratories of Stamford, Connecticut to individual medical groups and school and campus health centers as well as to hospitals and laboratories. "Mono-Test" is so simple that any medical technician can rec. port immediate results in two minutes. It can be performed by a doctor in his office using only a glass slide, a blood sample from the patient and the control samples provided in the kit. In addition, this new diagnostic test is inexpensive. To screen an entire school or university class costs only about one dollar per student. Before the introduction of this quick screening method it would have been almost unheard of to test a large number of students because conventional diagnostic techniques were too expensive and too time consuming.

53 '¥tars of Service Ends t'"'•:;'.'

By Mary Budler At the ·.top of: the .hill, on the right corner at Peru's entrance, stands· an old, multi-purpose house~Craig's Avenue Grocery Store. This friendly old store has offered a wide variety of services in a homey .atmosphere .for over 53 years. Yet, on Sept. 24, the ''Avenue" ·cleared. its shelves at a final public. auction; Despite intermittent rain showers, the Berniard and Weisbrook auctioneers sold each item one by one. And thus a long, colorful history of a unique business was ended. Since its beginning in 1913, when Mr. Colglazer opened the store in partnership with H. U. Landolt, the ''Avenue" has catered to the college students. .After Landolt gained full ownership in 1915, the store de a 1t mainly with grocery products and limited school supplies. However, there was a fountain consisting .of three round "ice cream tables" and a short lunch ·counter in the rear of the store. Mr. Landolt recalls warmly "the many boys and girls who ate rolls and drank coffee in the early mornings there years ago." The store boosted its inventory greatly with the addition of the ibookstore in 1942. This perhaps was the store's greatest identifiootion with the campus. As Mr. . Landolt's business grew, he hired young Lenis Craig

as a shelfboy. Soon Craig became Land'Olt's son-in-law. His. young wife, Katherine, was then a Peru Stater. In 1945 Craig ibought the store from his fatherin-law. Craig exp a •n de d LandoIt's fountain into the Original Bob Inn in the ·store basement. Soon, however, the Bob Inn was moved to Delzell Hall. Craig and his wife continued to increase the Avenue Store's facets of service. In fact, at the time of the store's closing, the merchandise ranged from toothpaste to drawing paper to gasoline. It was even possible to buy prepared sandwiches and pizzas. There were also two apartments in the building whieh were rented to single and married students. All these services have, of course, been discontinued. Soon, even the store itself will be gone. As the college progresses, this little store is going to be torn down to make room for a parking lot-a decision of the Normal Board. It seems a little sad that the old store must ibe cleared away. Thousands of students ·ha v e ·bought Cokes, pencils, and cans of soup by the score at the "Avenue." They have found it always warm and friendly. There is no other place which can evP.r replace it in the hearts of Peruvians since 1913.

Annual High School Cross Country Meet

This meet was divided into two classes, A for schools with a male enrollment above 125 and B for schools which fall below 125. The winning team in each class received a trophy while the top ten finishers in each class received medals. After the meet had been run, there was a "Victory Luncheon" for the athletes and coaches at the Peru State Student Center.

The third annual Peru State College Invitationw High School Cross Country .meet was held at Peru Saturday, October 1. Participating in the 1.8 mile run were high school athletes from the four-state area of Ne. braska, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri.

Will Our Homecoming Have 50% Fewer Students? In less than a month Peru State will be celebrating its Centennial Homecoming; this event will bring Peru alumni from all parts ..of the country to our campus. They will .be returning .... not merely to attend the game, play and dance .... but to "renew old memories" and view with a great deal of interest the chang€s made over the years~ Their very presence will testify their pride at being graduates· of Peru State College. But will we, as students, exhibit an equal amount? Or are they going to be disappointed in the lack .of school spirit today? We hope not.

Just hoping that we ·can rise to the occasion is not nearly enough. We must demonstrate with our displays, our publicity, and most hnportant, our presence at these events that we are truly proud possessors of a century's heritage. With over a thousand stu. ·dents, Peru's Bobcat stadium should ibe .bursting at the seams with enthusiasm that Saturday afternoon. But with less than 50 per cent attendance, how can this be possible? As loyal boosters of Peru's service to 'Nebraska, let's make this Centennial Homecoming a memorable one for alumni and students alike. -The Editor

BOOK REVIEW BY CHLOE MILLER Space for Everyone, iby Phillip S. Egan; Rand, McNally & Co. Space for Everyone is a simple, non-technical book which gives up-to-date information and the basic facts everyone wants to know· 8!bout space and man's relation to it. Today, with the great emphasis our society . is placing on space exploration and travel, we 'are left behind if we do not have a basic understanding of .space exploration techniques. Through the use of conversational text

and interesting color drawings and photographs, the author shows the beginner how to find his way about the skies and goes on to explain some of the between rockets and aircraft. Mr. Egan also tells how man-made satellites are put into orbit and traces the operations that would go into p1anning a shot to the moon. This book is interesting, informational, and a must for people who really want to be "in the picture" for understanding current and future space probes.

Freshman Fashions Freshman 'IClash Day" was held Thursday, Sept. 15, as part of the freshman initiation sponsored by the S.G.A. Girls were required to participate by wearing clashing skirts and blouses and .by teetering around in one high and one low heel. They were also required to go without makeup and style their hair in 20 "fashionable" braids. Nor were the boys left out of all the "fun"; they responded to the order-of-the-day :by wearing their shirts inside-out and backwards with a tie both in front and in back. Their pockets hung on the outside of their pants and they were also obliged to wear two different shoes and socks. None of this led to the particular happiness of the freshmen, and many spent at least part of the day "cowering under the covers" in their dormitories. But they were allowed to regain their "lost image" by looking especially dignified Friday on "Dress"UP Day."

Goober Juice Strikes Again Goober juice flowed freely at the annual freshman initiation celebration. The festivities began with a picnic Cl.inner consisting of hot dogs, baked beans, potato salad, and grape kool-aid. The activities began with the freshmen ·singing the color song; the show was really on the road then. Picture, if you can, twenty-five students running in various directions all at once. The "drunk man's race" gave you this picture. Freshmen were required to place their heads on a ball bat, run around in a circle, and then run in a "straight" line. The results were ibeyond belief: Sometimes beauty needs· a little encouragement. Well, the upperclassmen encouraged beauty to the best of their ability. As a freshman, you may have been lucky enough to have your hair done. Egg, mustard, catsup, syrup, flour, oatmeal, goober juice, and feathers were added to obtain a new natural glow. The fun wasn't quite as messy all the time. There was a threelegged gunny sack race. The sacks had been properly aged for the event-eight years in a garage, or so the freshmen were told. There was. one slight disappointment in the evening's events, though. There was to be a whipped cream race, but it seems that the spray c an s wouldn't work. This really disappointed some freshmen.

St. Mary Stuns Peru 27-20 Peru State suffered its first loss in two starts Sept. 17 as the mistake-ridden Bobcats fell to the passing attack of St. Mary of the Plains, 27-20, at Dodge City, Kansas. St. Mary's was the first to score as it built up a quick 14-0 lead in the second quarter on the arm of Quarterback Jon Taylor, who threw TD passes of 66 and 28 yards. St. Mary's defense and Peru's mistakes kept the Bobcats off the scoreboard in the first half. In the second half Peru came to life as its passing attack started to click. Carl Satterfield connected on a 15-yard TD pass to John Creamer following a pass interception by Arnold Johnston. The kick for ·the extra point was blocked. Minutes later a Peru fumble led to another St. Mary touchdown. Peru then took the kickoff and marched 73 yards to its second ·touchdown on a 22yard pass from Satterfield to End John Creamer. The extra point attempt was blocked. Peru scored again on a 94-yard march capped by a 22-yard pass from Satterfield to Creamer. The pass for the extra point was in.tercepted. At this point Peru trailed St. Mary 20-18 with 9:32 left in the game. St. Mary scored what proved to be the winning touchdown on a 16-yard pass play with six minutes to go in the ball game. Peru, valiantly fighting to come from behind, marched the ball from its own 34-yard line to the St. Mary two-yard line only to fumble the ball away with 3:57 remaining in the game. Peru's final two points came when St. Mary recovered its own fumble in the end zone. Quartenback Jon Tuylor proved to be a ·thorn in Peru's side as he passed for 265 yards, completing 22 of 38 passes. Coach Ervin Pitts charged Peru's downfall to the inability to move the ball on the ground, as the Bobcats could muster only 27 yards rushing. This accounted for Peru's lack-luster first half. The victory was the first for St. Mary in a five-game series history with Peru State.

Peru Outruns Wayne September 24th found Peru's Cross Country team at Wayne State. The harriers from Peru had plenty of trouble conquering a tough Wayne State team, 24 to 32. The wind, early season colds, and ailments held Peru's runners to the unusually hard finish. To win a major meet, the first · seven runners should place within one minute of each other. Coach Pilkington states, "The grouping of this race was very poor; some of the sophomores and freshmen are going to have to want to win a little harder if they wish to have a real successful season of cross country." The time •between Peru's first man and the seventh man was t w o minutes and thirty-three seconds. The places for Peru: 1. Tim Hendricks ________ 15:27 4. Steve Cornelius _______ 16:27 5.

Northwest Missouri started the second half just where they left off in the first half as the Missourians quickly scored on a 12yard run. With Peru's subs, Doug Winfield and Rich Guzinski, sharing the quarterbacking duties in place of injured Carl Satterfield, the Bobcats scored their second touchdown of the night on a four-yard pass from Guzinski to Gary Colgrove. The Missourians scored their last tally on an end sweep by Quarterback Don Orlowski on the final play of the game.

The Omaha World.,Herald's Star of the Week award was earned iby Peru State gridder John Creamer for his outstanding play against St. Mary of the Plains on September 17. The award is given each week to the top Nebraska college player of the week. ' The 6'2'', 205 pound end pulled down 12 aerials accounting for three touchdowns and 205 yards. Altoge·ther the pass combination of Creamer and Carl Satterfield set five Peru records. The 160pound Satterfield set new individual records in passing attempts (38), completions (22), an~ yards gained (300), for one game. Creamer's 12 receptions and 205 yards gained were records also. Already this season the Worcester product' has caught 14 passes for 248 yards. After two games, this is far ahead of the pace he set last year. Coach Ervin Pitts said Creamer's performance was one of the' best he has seen in recent years. He also feels Creamer ranks with the best in the N.C.C.

An Old Solution to Modern Day Problem

From a public opinion column in a November 13, 1928, edition of the Peru Pedagogian comes this letter to the editor. Dear Editor:

"HOW TO PREVENT CHEATING" To prevent cheating, students: 1. Will march to class under guard of Peru's police force equipped with sawed-off shot guns.

2. Will be stopped at doorway and searched for contraband notes, etc.

9. Highly tuned dictaphones will be concealed behind the pictures to catch the slightest whisper. 10. When the student has finished his examination a lie . detector will 'be used to find out whether or not he has cheated.

3. Before entering classroom each student will be submitted to psychological examination to determine whether or not he has any idea of cheating.

11. In marking the papers, professors will discount 10 points from each paper on the possibility that the student has cheated.

4. Classroom will be decorated

This will make every student in P.S.T.C. a perfect example for others to follow.

Yes, the student plays many parts; but if in each of them he is progressive, then it need not be said that "tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow creeps in this petty pace from day to day," for each day and each role will bring new goals and satisfying fulfillment.

Return of Homecoming Queens to Mark Centennial Event By Mary Hunzeker "The surprise, the excitement, and.,.;the honor of being chosen queen." This was the most vivid memory of Peru State's first Homecoming Queen, E 1 v e r a Schacht Juilfs, as she reminisced about ihai day. Peru's Homecoming Queen tradition dates back to 1940 when two queens reigned. Margaret Kinsey Wallace reigned during the football activities, while at the evening dance Elvera Schacht Juilfs reigned. October 22 is Peru's Centennial Homecoming, and both of the past queens along with 14 others have indicated that they will return ,to the "Campus of a Thousand Oaks" to help celebrate. All the former queens are invited to be special guests of the college during the Homecoming activities. There will be a morning coffee for them and their escorts, an all-alumni luncheon, and the football game where they will have a reserved section. After the game o 1d friendships will be renewed at a reception for them in Eliza Morgan Hall. Not to be forgotten is

the Homecoming Dance Saturday night where the former queens will be honored. Memories of the former queens include those such as this one of Mrs. Wallace: "Riding in t h e convertible on the field and being presented by Jack Mcintire -captain of the team." Glendora Galloway Rohrs, queen in 1943, recalls that "Bob O'Dell was to drive me onto the field at the band's fanfare, but we had the car radio on and talking and missed the signal." There can also be a rather sad note to Homecoming festivities, for Maxine Blinde Haack, reigning queen in 1944, notes that, "It was a thrilling experience for me as it is for anyone who is chosen for the honor. However, our country was. at war and the atmosphere is not as ·relaxed and jubilant at such times, and many people other than college students or close residents were unable to attend due to gas. rationing." Doris Wagner Vrtiska, queen in 1946, recalls the suspense of the coronation, for "The Speakers didn't carry to the center of the

Peruvians Anticipate Centennial Homecoming With the approach of Saturday, Oct. 22, Peruvians are rapidly concluding plans for this, their Centennial Homecoming. Although Saturday is the climax and crowning day of this occasion, the week-end celebration will begin on Thursday, Oct. 20. On this date a concert will be given at 8 p.m. by the Don Cossack Chorus and Dancers. A Homecoming convocation will be presented Friday, Oct. 21 at 10:30 a.m. The featured speaker at this convocation will be Dr. Ross Russell, a 1941 graduate of Peru State. Also on Friday, a reunion for members of the class of 1941 will ,be held at 6 p.m. Early in the morning of Saturday, Oct. 22, the Peru students will busy themselves putting the last of the disp1ays in place so that they may be judged and Turn to page 4, column 1

BOOK REVIEW Did You Know • • •


By La Vera BenneU

The opinions of Peru State students are important to . the staff of the Pedagogian. The editor of the Ped takes this opportunity to invite those of you who have something you wish to say to submit your comments, in the form of a typed, personally signed letter, to this staff. However, a word of caution must follow.

Book Review-FOR A RADICAL CHANGE-The Communist View Report t-0 .the 18th National Convention, Communist Party, U. S. A. June 22-26, 1966 by Gus Hall.

As college students, you are expected to be capable of forming opinions on facts, not hearsay. And never should a letter to the editor be written in a state of anger, for your attitude at the time the letter was written may not be a true reflection of your thinking on the subject. Letters submitted should be carefully and respectfully worded, not over 200 words in length, and submitted by the Monday prior to the final deadline on Wednesday. They must be signed, given to a member of the Ped staff, and subjected to editing for the purpose of grammatical corrections. If your letter is accepted and selected for publication, you will be consulted about any changes that might have been made before printing.

For a Radical Change is the report and concluding remarks to the 18th National Convention of the Communist Party by Gus Hall, general secretary of the Communist Party of the United States of America. In his report, Mr. Hall relates that the only way for the U. S. to defend democratic institutions is to come to the defense of the ideals of the Communist Party, and to the science of MarxismLeninism.

Peru Bounces Back; Rumbles by Chadron After the devastating week, end of Oct. 1, in which Kearney ifsmashed Peru 54·0, the Bobcats had nowhere to go but up and that is just where they went with a 41-7 ramble past C ha d r o n State .. Peru rolled up a massive 375 yards rushing and made 26 first downs to Chadron's 10.

After Nix's previous try for an extra point was wide, he split •the uprights this time and gave the Bobcats a 20-0 lead at halftime. Peru went scoreless through the third period but exploded with three touchdowns in the final stanza. Bob Urwin picked up a. Chadron fumble and scampered into the end zone early in the period.

Chadron's only score came in the fourth .quarter when Quarterback Mike Wenchell passed 53 yards .to End Dean Palser. Peru's fine play may be partly attributed to a number of players who were filling in for injured starters.

have won each meet in which ·they have participated. Although football occupies most of the enthusiasm during the fall months, cross-country, at this school es. pecially, seems to be making progress by leaps and bounds. While we're on the subject of cross-country, it's been brought to my attention that a few coeds are initiating a cross-country team for the fairer sex. Alth<>ugh details are limited at the moment, we wish them best of luck in their progressive endeavor.

From days gone by . . . . I found while reading the Omaha World Herald's pµblicati<>n Big Red, a history of Nebraska Cornhusker football, that the "U" had three encounters with Peru State in the early part of this century. All ended in defeat for the Bobcats, however. In 1907 Nebraska U. defeated Peru, 53-0; in 19-08 the score was 20-0; and in 1910 Nebraska U. rambled to a 66-0 victory over their neighbors to the south. D<>n't feel badly, Peruvians, because the same year (1910) the C<>rn:huskers defeated Haskell Institute (Kansas) 119-0 !

Some interesting statistics ... . . . In the last issue of the Ped it was noted that only 20 Nebraskans are on the P.S.C. football roster of '66. Hiram Scott College of Scottsbluff, Nebr., has exactly two on its squad of 90. However, Kearney St,ate reports that all but three of its gridders are from the Cornhusker state ... Over 2·6,000,000 people attended college football games last year and the figures for this fall are eX'pected to reach almost 30,000,000. I encourage all who read this paper to attend Peru's games and do ,their part in setting these attendance records.

It provides its members with opportunities f o r personal and professional growth; for gaining an understanding of the history, ethics, and program of the organized teaching profession; for participating in cooperative work on the problems of the profession and the community; and for active professional membership on the local, state, and national levels. The association board consists of one representative from each class, one SGA representative, and five elected officers. Meetings are h&ld the third Monday of each month at 7:00 p. m. The meetings provide information about professional education, and feature at least . t w () guest speakers a year. The association is also responsible for two convocations each year. Other activities include two state conventions, an annual picnic in the spring, a homecoming display, and field trip work, which is a new activity this year.

Eligibility is based upon an in,terest in professional education and regular attendance at the meetings. Each member is required to pay annual dues of $3.00. The membership of PSEA this year is 22-0. The board members and representatives are elected annually. Bill Bowen is now in his second year as the president of PSEA. Other officers include Nancy Larson, vice-president; Mary Lu Hicks, secretary; Dick Dobbs, treasurer; Rogine Bang, historian; and Ken Stoner, SGA representative. The class representatives are Ceci Evangelist, seniors; Donna Wiley, juniors; Carol Rist, sophomores; and Wayne Tackett, freshmen. Organization sponsors are Mr. Harold Johnson, Peru placement director, and Dr. Uoyd Kite, associate professor of education. The president Bill Bowen, wishes to remind everyone that the PSEA is a part of a three level unit. Upon joining, you also become a member of the Student Education Association of Ne,braska and the Na:tional Student Education Association. All members receive the professional and national organization journals, and the benefits of the professional organization membership -resource materials, eligibility for any sponsored travel programs, and full legal services of the national organization.

The Cossack Chorus was organized in Prague, Czechoslovakia by its present director, Nicholas Kostrukoff. They are internationally known for they have toured on all six continents and appeared in 65 countries. Recently the Platoff Chorus gave its 8000th concert, and of this number 617 were devoted to church music and given in various churches, including Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris before an audience of 10,000. In 25 years of singing in · the United States and Canada, the Chorus has missed only one performance, and that was because a locomotive of their train exploded in Kentucky. Anyone who saw them perform in Peru now knows why the New.. York Times states that they "still stand among the best choral group to be heard in our concert halls."

A group of youthful spectators gaze aUentively at the winning entry in the NEBRASKANA Art Show. "Early Settlers" was the name of the first- place painting. -Special Services

Nebraskana Art Show Exhibited On Campus The top entries from the Governor's NEBRASKANA Ar t Show were shown in the Exhibition Court of the Fine Arts Building October 17 through October 22. These 23 paintings were chosen from the cream of the competition of a display held in the rotunda of the State Capitol during the NEBRASKAland DAYS celebration. The State Game Commission handled t h e exhtbit, and they feel that "Each of the pictures captures the spirit of the state and shows a special flair for Nebraska people and places." "Early Settler" painted b y Thomas Bartek of Omaha was the exhibit's first prize pain ting. Mr. Bartek's picture depicts an elderly farm couple as s e en through the window of their brick farm house. "Iron Markers" painted by Ka.thleen Oberg

of Holdrege was the second prize painting. Marie Osterloh, Omaha, had the third prize painting. Her painting, "October Landscape," shows ·the fall coloring of milk weeds with an old barn in the background. Although each painting has a sl:ory behind il:, Kathleen Oberg's is based--on a rather unique tale. Her painting shows three iron grave markers on the lonely prairie. These markers are a part of the mystery of the t h r e e "lonesome iron crosses of the prairie." They are located in the corner of a pasture thtee miles northwest of Gothenburg, Nebraska.

For years the Gothenburg residents speculated as to why the markers were there, but in the spring of 1962 the mystery was solved by a sister, now Mrs. Harry Anderson of Loomis, Nebraska. Mrs. Anderson was born after the death of the three children, and used an old family Bible to identify the children's names. Mrs. Anderson remarked that she and her remaining brothers were told only that the children had died in an epidemic, and recalled how they used to visit the graves to put flowers on them.

The num· 1ber of students in the· freshman class remained almost the same as in 1965, but there was an increase in the number of upperclassmen and graduate students.

Spoon River Anthology Reviewed Editor's Note: Mr. R. H. Fanders is a drama coach in an Iowa school. After a:ttending t h e Homecoming play, he wrote the following review. '.A stage, actors and imaginatfon are all one really needs for a stimulating evening if the words and ideas are provided by a·. great American poet who had his finger on the pulse of an American small town. Professor R; D. Moore proved it Homecomiµg evening in the Peru auditorium by presenting four talented people in Spoon River Anthology betore an appreciative audience. The presentation of a gallery of characters from a small midwestern graveyard required tremendous physical and vocal resources because actors did not have the support of costume, I#akeup or set. In almost every Cli$e .·the young actors w e r e eJiui\l to the task. }l'he people in Edgar Lee Mast~fs Spoon River are intensely b:uinan: strong, weak, deceitful, self-serving, spiteful, hypocritical:, ·bitter, cynical, impassioned 4~i:Lbroken as we are all. Per~l"ips, fortunately, the brightest

and one of the most moving performances was given by Diane Morrison as Lucinda Matlock who, after all of the bitterness and heart-break of losing eight of her twelve children, found life beautiful, exciting and wonderful because "It takes life to love life." Her simple philosophy shamed all the rest of the inhabitants. Miss Morrison was also very effective as Aunt Hanna, as in a rich, emotion-strained voice she pleaded before Lincoln. She shows real promise as an actress. With a voice :that commands aUenfion Mike Toscano savagely attacked a large number of characterizations that ranged from the amusing (Willie Metcalf the Idiot and the little Jew, who through an unfortunate accident was buried in Spoon River. "It was bad enough to sell clothes in this town but to be buried here ...." stopped the show with enthusiastic applause) to the brutal Rhodes' slave, Eugene Carman. There was the sly Judge Lively on his knees who g o t "even" with those who had mistreated him. In addition Toscano made a real effort to add physi-

cal characteristics to his people and to probe the inner depths of their existence. As reader number three, Don Dodge had perhaps the greatest vocal range. He was best as th e hypocritical Deacon Tayler and the pompous Hamilton Greene. Unfortunately, in the gravelvoiced characters, words were often lost because of poor diction -and in poetry words are spare and precious. Joan Bretthorst, reader number two was outstanding as Elsa Wertman, the immigrant woman dishonored by her employer-(a full play was contained in the three vignettes encompassing this tragedy). She was also effective as the poetess Minerva, scorned by the village and victim of a quack doctor. Poetry is condensed almost beyond belief. The poet must secure worlds of meaning in a single phrase or a word. In some of Masters' sparest verses a r e packed entire novels and tragicomedies for which writers of lesser stature would require many pages. But this also proTurn to page 5, column 1

Phi Beta Lambda captured Grand Prize, which is $50, for its display on progress since the covered wagon Saturday for Peru State's Home<:oming. Home Economics Club merited first place, which is a trophy and $25, for their display of a recipe and cake for Peru's victory. Tri Beta won second place, a trophy and $15, for their Bobcat and Bronco. Industrial Arts Club took third place, consisting of a trophy and $10, for their display of Peru State's beginning. There were twelve displays in all. All campus organizations were sent letters by SGA en<!Ouraging the making of a display for Homecoming. SGA also gave the money and trophies for the prizes.

Reception Honors Past Homecoming Queens Following the homecoming game the residents of Eliza Mor.g;in Hall held a tea and reception in honor of the past homecoming queens. The Student Wives served coffee and cookies provided by the Student Union. A tour of the dormitory allowed the past queens to see the various changes since they lived on campus. Many of the visitors showed their children the rooms where they had lived while students at Peru State. The past homecoming queens attending were: Mrs. Margery Kinsey Wallace (1940), Lincoln; Mrs. Elvera Schacht Juilfs (1940), Miami, Florida; Mrs. Ferne Peterson Mailey (1941), Indianapolis, Indiana; Mrs. Virgie Johnson Shaw (1942), Coral Gables, Florida; Mrs. Glendora Galloway Rohrs (1943), Fremont; Mrs. Maxine Blinde Haack (1944), Johnson; ·Mrs. Cody Anderson Lin<;ler (1945), Lincoln; Mrs. Dorjs Wagner Vrtiska (1946), Table Rock; Mrs. Ruth Walker Howe (1948), Fort Smith, Arkansas; Mrs. Jean Ruyle Rottman (1958), Fayetteville, Arkansas; Mrs. Lee

Misses Weare Return The Misses Hazel and Edna Weare, professors emeritus who now live in Lexington, Missouri, were guests of the Harold Johnsons for the Homecoming weekend. They extended their stay in order to attend the U.N. Dinner as the guests of Miss Gladys Grush.

Spoon River Anthology From page four duces a difficulty for the theatre because drama needs time and space for really deep and penetrating insight as does the audience. Masters' lines need the unhurried reflection to make their point. But often the verse gains in interpretation of the director and the skill and inflection of the actors. Best ensemble playing was in Dippold the Optician where the interplay involving all f o u r voices in rapid and complicated sequence revealed the careful direction and rehearsal of the work. Suitable musical background was provided by the voice of Joan Sprieck using a "country timbre" and Mel Hester's subtle guitar. Perhaps this effort should not be considered as drama because it has no unified structure beyond that of Masters' book nor does it have a single conflict. It is instead a spray of sometimes dazzling fragments. Visually the play was weak and unexciting. There are those whD, like RDbert Edmund JDnes, have maintained that the theatre must be an "eyeful." R e c e n t trends have been in that directiDn (Royal Hunt of the Sun and Marat-Sade). Here Spoon River fails. Lighting which would have varied in color to suit the mood and levels providing for m o re aesthetic blocking might h a v e been an aid. Possibly even abstraction instead of the reality provided might have been more exciting visually. As it was, Professor Moore could sca11cely have provided a better showcase for four talented people to display their imagination, voices and bodies in an intellectual, if not always emotional, evening. -R. H. Fander

SECOND PAYMENT DUE Nine weeks have passed and the semester is half over. This means that the second half of board and room is due. Students are reminded that the amount due is $162.5(} which must be paid by November 4, at the Business Office.

The Special Services Department of Peru State College is off to another dedicated year of service. Peru State called for their services as head of the Alumni office. They were in charge of the 1941 Homecoming class reunion. Seventeen out of 48 living members were able to attend a class reunion held at Arbor Manor, at 6:00 p.m. October 21, 1966, coming from places as far away as Tennessee, Michigan, Iowa, Kansas, Colorado, Washington, Texas. and Florida. They a 1 so presented the Alumni Luncheon, serving over 170 guests. The class of 1941 had the largest representation, and the oldest guest was Dr. Clyde Filley, professor emeritus of the University of Nebraska, coming to represent the class of 1899. · Along with all their other in-

volvements, the Special Services Department took a part in helping Mary Lu Hicks and Nancy Larson sponsor the halftime royalty program. Sixteen of twentyeight past queens were able to attend. Mr. Carlile is presently taking part in an extensive campaign program to encourage larger enrollments in Peru College. His duties involve his attendance at many high school career d a y programs throughout the surrounding areas, while his main goal is to encourage further interest among students in Peru College. The last program on his agenda was at Nebraska City, where he was accompanied by Mr. Johnson, who spoke on teaching; Dean Rosenberg, who attended a parents coffee hour; and Mr. Donald Wilson who presented a session on art. With all these accomplishments, one would think that the S p e c i a 1 Services Department could do no more, but such is not the case. Both Mr. Carlile and Mr. Bob Henry feel that they also make the best coffee in the world!

"Frontier Days" Theme of U.N Dinner The 15th annual U.N. Dinner was held Tuesday, October 2.5, 1966. This year's theme was "The Frontier Days" in keeping with the Centennial of our State. This dinner is prepared by the Experimental Foods Class with the help of the Home Economics Club and majors and is under the direction of Mrs. Kregel. Dave Williams played a piano ·j· medley to introduce the pro·.· gram. The blessing was given by ,' L. B. Mathews, pioneer professor emeritus.

Fall Weather Heralds Homecoming By Maxine Lyons Each day as the sun sets into the western horizon, we see the end of summer and the approach of a new season. Slowly Old Man Winter creeps upon us. Everywhere life sheds its summer clothing and d@s a new wardrobe for the long, cold winter ahead. The leaves fall from their haven in the trees to death upon the damp, bare ground. The rainbow of colors fluttering in the breeze paint a picture of the dying earth. The velvet carpet of grass turns brown in its age-old tradition. No longer is it the playground for the vast number of cheerful, chattering voices. They too recede into a state of inactivity and shy from the chill of the blasting North Wind. Puffy cheeked squirrels reveal a frantic search for the winter supply of food. Gone is the noisy chatter which awakes us early on the bright summer mornings.

With half of Peru State's football season over, it is now easy to identify the type of team the Bobcats have become. Football teams usually fall into three basic divisions-winning, losing, and inconsistent teams. Each presents different coaching problems. The coaching staff of a losing team usually doesn't have to work as hard since no team wants to be a consistent loser. The players join together to defend themselves from their critical fans and work harder to win. The team that must maintain the high edge and momentum ?f a winning .team has the tendency to relax when thmgs are gomg well. This certainly isn't a problem which the Bobcats must overcome. The inconsistent team with which I identify the Bobcats is a team that works hard against the powerful teams and relaxes against the seemingly weak teams. Sometimes injuries produce the inconsistent team but more often than not it is the product of indifferent attitudes in practice. Such teams muster their physical and mental forces against the "tough" opponent but relax before easy games. It seems to me that there sho~ld be no such thing as an easy team. The coachmg staff certainly faces a greater task with the inconsistent team and must work harder to promote the idea that "the only important game on the schedule is the next one." If the Bobcats could have utilized the talents of the team . as well as those of the coaching staff to a greater degree, the win-loss statistics could easily read just the opposite.

Peru's attack wasn't exactly impotent for the Bobcats were within 'Wayne's 20-yard line three times during the first half. However,. they lost the ball twice on intercepted passes and a field goal attempt which fell short. Wayne held the edge in the statiStical department. They held a 10-8 advantage in first downs and outgained Peru 273 yards to 152 for the Bobcats.

Men's Education ~roup From page one ~chieve more . efficiently' the pur~ 'poses of the organization, which fo:funally are the following: 1. To build morale among male students in Teachers College. . 2. To build meahingful relationships between students and professional educators. 3. To provide additional teaching experiences for undergraduate members. 4. To stimulate recruitment of competent men to enter the teaching profession. The organization now revolves around these four basic aims; ·and in attempting to accomplish them, it has one major purpose 'in mind: Furthering the profession of teaching. Sample aciivi:ties of the Alpha Chapter of M.E.N., in trying to further the Profession, include weekly meetings with bi-monthly speeches by noted educators. Also featured is the annual teaching trip, in which the members of M.E.N. effectively "take over" a school system and teach the classes for one day. In addition, the Alpha chapter sponsors :a "Big Brother" program, and provides a one year tuition scholarship for the most deserving high school senior in the state. Besides ·the academic activities :already mentioned, the M.E.N. holds social functions such as picnics and banquets. · · Three meetings of Peru stu-

He also tells of some fads in medicine and in the royal families. , Wli,ell,. he examines fashions, he telk<JI ;peanlJSi bcauly~atches and great ladies that influenced the fashions. All phases of fashion are treated wittily, but with complete honesty. The last part of the book tells of man's attempt to forecast the and his failure to do so.

FK .Legacy Left . Os Hope--" nd Obligations," Says Sorensen 'Theodore C. (Ted) Sorensen s the responsibility of main- . i1l.g the "legacy of JFK" rests the Ameri<:an public. In his ess to his Peru audience on v. 3 in the college auditorium, . Sorensen pointed out that .e .Kennedy legacy is much ore than "a stY'le, a rhetoric, . a family tradition." Kennedy, he said, had a great ct on the American political ne in campaign techniques, diminishing of the religious e, and less suppression in era! of minority groups. The President believed the "te House should dominate executive branch. According Mr. Sorensen, JFK made the sidency "an everyday force the everyday lives of all evday Americans." Kennedy's foreign policy had even greater impad than his omestic policy. "Kennedy's chil'dren," as the Peace Covps is known, was his most intensely boosted project. Mr. Sorensen ·caHed Oct. 22, 2, the turning point of the Id war. He said Kennedy hanthe Cuban missile crisis th just the right combination "defense, diplomacy, and diague." Also to be remembered is · Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, e Hot~Line, the Space Ban greement, and the sale of American wheat.. The last legacy Kennedy left the American people was hopebope for America and its people. t is our obligation to keep that hope alive. Upon conclusion of his Kennedy speech, Mr. Sorensen answered questions posed by Peru students. Below ·are some of the opinions he brought out in his replies to these questions. Mr. Sorensen, a former Presidential Aide, said Bobby Kennedy will be in the White House -some day-and that he hopes

to be on the team again. He said he misses not being a part of the Washington inner cii:cle. On the matter of released information concerning Viet Nam, he is especially regretful f o r there is a wide gap between the public version and the g'overnment reports. Continuing on the Viet Nam issue, he said· the U. S. cannot abandon its longstanding commitment to the South Vietnamese. A medium between all-out war and withdrawal must be reached. Of the state gubernatorial race, Mr. Sorensen said his brother would! make a "top-rate governor." Asked his feelings on R e d China, the speaker replied simply, "I don't like it!" He said they are our most serious threat of a long-range menace. He suggested that perhaps the U. S. abundance of food will be the wedge to peace. Mr. Sorensen also offered the possibility of the Red Chinese finally recognizing their terrible responsibility upon joining the "nuclear club."

Debaters Attend South Dakota Tourney The Peru State Debate Squad attended the 17th Annual Forensic Tournament on the campus of the University of South Dakota at Vermillion from November 3 through 5th. The eight students making the /trip included La Vera Bennett, Marian Nelson, Bernadine Fintel, Barry Ray, Roderic 'Ray , Robert Conradt, Steve Knittle, and Charles Williams. Besides participating in four rounds of debate Mrs. Bennett and Mr. Conradt entered Extemp; Miss and M.r. B. Ray entered Discussion; Miss Fintel and Mr. Knittle entered T.V. Commentary; Mr. R. Ray entered radio Announcing; and Mr. Williams entered .Oral Interp. Mr. Levitt, the patient and understanding coach, was also kept busy judging both individual events and novice debate. In the individual events and novice debate, the University of Iowa took the Sweepstakes Trophy, while in "A" Division of debate, the University of Nebraska had three teams in the finals. The P.S.C. debaters, although they didn't have a winning record, gained valuable experience Continued-page 6, column 4

When questioned about a remark made at McCook in 1961 criticizing the Nebraska educational system, Mr. Sorensen said he is finding many people agree with him. He had discussed the problem of young people leaving the state, the need for improving education, and the importance of establishing a more adequate financial base for schools. Discussing the recent Manila Conference, Mr. Sorensen said it was probably partially of political value as well as peacemaking value. He pointed out th a t there .is little need for meeting with those who are already on our side. Mr. Sorensen, a native of Lin~ coln and father of three sons, has written two books, Decision Making in the White House and Kennedy, a best seller. In addition to being a fawyer and serving on President Kennedy's executive committee and the National Security Council, Mr. Sorensen was chosen by the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce as one of America's Ten Outstanding Young Men.

Native Nebraskan Ted Sorensen brought the "legacy of JFK" to Peru when he spoke here Nov. 3.

NOVEMBER 16, 1966

Special S~rvices and James Levitt Present "Peru's Proud Past" "Peru's Proud Past" was the subject of the seventh convocation held for observing the centennial of Peru State College. Slides were· presented 1 about Peru State's history. These slides, which were from old pictures found in the library, were made by Special Services with the assistance of James D. Levitt. A recording explained what the slides entailed. Two past graduates of Peru State attended the convocation, Dr. and Mrs. Clyde FiHey and Miss Meyer. Dr. Filley was an 1889 graduate, and Miss Meyer represented class of 1905. The time covered by the slides began with Peru's acceptance by the state legislature of Nebraska, and continued to the present

time. The first principal and teacher was J. M. McKenzie, who worked with getting the first ·building constructed. It s t o o d where the Student Center is now. On June 20, 1867 Peru State College became a tax-supported institution. Another fact the slides revealed was that in 1872 Peru had eight teachers with an enrollment of 275. At this time the first building, called Normail Hall, was changed into a girls' dormitory with Miss Eliza Morgan as house mother and Dean of Women. The present girls' dormitory was named for her. In the late 1880's athletics were started, and in 1892 the college authorized the first football

team. In 19001 Oak Bowl was constructed with the help of the townspeople. Since 1900 Peru has done most of its growing. It has completed 12 building projects: the Administration Bui!lding, Science Hall, Eliza Morgan Hall, Delzell Hall, Campus School, Library, married students' apartments, Student Center, Gymnasium, Fine Arts, Majors Hall, and the Industrial Arts Building. New dormitories with a separate cafeteria are being built for use next fall. In 100 years the enroHment of the college has gone from 71 to over 1,000. It has had 18 presidents, earlier referred to as principals. They taught classes as well as leading the college.

Former President Dr. Wayne Reed Defines Role of Education November 9 saw the return of Peru alumnus Dr. Wayne 0. Reed to the campus to give the convocation address and receive the Distinguished. Educational Service Award. Formerly Dr. Reed served as president of Peru State College from 1950 to 1951, when he left to join the U. S. Office of Education. Presently, he is associate commissioner for Federal-State relations. Early in his speech, Dr. Reed ·noted that today's students are two to four years .more mature than the average when he was a student. As to the purposes of teacher education, he stated that a teacher's job is to (1) emphasize the worth of individual be-

ing and (2) to emphasize the ability of man to conform to life as it changes. Dr. Reed impressed upon his audience that the world is and will be changing. Nations will feel increasing dependence on each other, promoting an intra-. dependent world. He used the term "cultural pluralism" to describe this condition. He felt the changing world was a product of technical evolution, pointing out that most occupations could be filled by computers. Quoting Hutchins, Dr. Reed stated, ''The object of education is not manpower, but manhood." To achieve this, we must search for the meaning of man. He then

revealed what he considered to be the three great hungers of man-(1) search for meaning, (2) search for love, and (3) desire to work well. "What a teacher is, is far more important sometimes than what he teaches,'' said Dr. Reed. Using vivid metaphors, he went on to say that the strength we need most is the "muscles q;f the mind, and sinews of the imagination." Dr. Reed warned that love of learning has been lost, and we must bring it back again. A good teacher has too much reverence to try to mold the soul of the child as his own, according to Dr. Reed. Rather, he must Continuedi-page 4, column 2

The college, in turn, could perform this worthwhile service without any additional expense. I am certain that commuting students would be highly appreciative if this service was instigated by the college. -La Vera Bennett

Delzell ls ·Renovated

Money Buys More

By Jack Gaines Men students who abandoned residence hall life at Delzell Hall last spring for another form of campus accommodation would be hard pressed to recognize "the castle" this fall, thanks to improvements which were begun during this past summer.

The Nemaha County Division of Public Welfare has released information concerning the new Food Stamp Program. Under this program, needy families are given an opportunity to spend their normal grocery money for food stamps of a higher monetary value. The stamps may be applied to any food except alcoholic beverages, tobacco, and imported foods. All individuals and families receiving public assistance and most low income families are eligible for this program. The latter non-assistance households will qualify if tJhe monthly income and liquid resources do not exceed the following:

Old and new residents alike were pleasantly surprised and very pleased to find upon arriving at Delzell this fall, that, while still in the construction stage, tihe hall was beginning to take on the appearance of modern, comfortable living quarters. The first renovation to take place was the insertion of builtin study units which run the length of one side of the room, and include large closet areas, book cases, study areas, and drawer space. Next came innerspring beds and iheating units which may be individually controlled by the separate rooms. Finally, at least as far as the rooms are concerned, new curtains were added to the decor to aid those who are allergic to morning, and to guard against any peeping toms lurking outside the men's dormitory.

Bobcats End Season With 2-7 Record By John Bernadt Peru State ended its season Nov. 5, losing to Missouri Valley of Marshall, Mo., 42-32. ...,The Bobcats took an early lead in the first quarter, 13-7. The Missouri Valley Vikings scored the first time they had the ball on a 74-yard pass play from Mickey Burns to Bob Thomas; Hershel Owens kicked the first of his seven straight extra points. Peru then marched 60 yards to score in eight plays with Oharles Daily scoring from the two. Carl Satterfield scored the extra point on a broken play. Peru the n scored again when Satterfield hit John Creamer on a 68-yard touchdown pass. In the second quarter the Vikings humiliated Peru with a 35point scoring attack. Tom Venus blocked a Bobcat punt and scored; and Missouri Valley went ahead, 14-13. Ow€ns kicked the placement. Then, two interceptions, a fumble, and several pen-, alties against Peru; and the Vikings were leading 42-13. Most of the fans left at the half because of the score and the cold, windy weather. They may have missed one of the truly fine efforts of a Peru 'Bobcat team. Quarterback Rich Guzinski took over controls and with Larry Colgrove and Nick Petrillo doing the rushing, drove 74 yards in 14 plays with Guzinski scoring from the seven. The score was then 42-19. Peru, playing inspired football, then traveled 56 yards to score again when Guzinski passed to Creamer for an 8-yard touchdown play. The score was then 25-42. The fighting Bobcats

stopped the Vikings on their 4yard line, early in the fourth quarter. Peru then marched 96 yards to score with 7:27 left in the game, with George Evangelist scoring from the two. Evangelist was a work horse the entire drive. Dan Nix kicked the extra point and the score w as 32-42. It was only a matter of time then as Missouri Valley was desperately clinging to their lead. Peru was stopped on the Viking 4-yard line for what might have been the back breaker.

The statistics prove that Peru was really the best team on the field. Peru gained 24 first downs to 12 for Missouri Valley while gaining 428 yards in total offense to 286 for Missouri Valley. Peru had 120 yards in penalties while the Vikings escaped with only 59 in a vidously contested affair.

For those who have been complaining about the lack of action at Bobcat football games, there was plenty during Peru's 42-32 loss to a fine Missouri Valley College team. It's too bad, however, more people didn't stick around for the wild second half. The Bobcats deserve a lot of credit for the great comeback they made after a disastrous second quarter. Peru's wasn't the only "wild" game in the area on Saturday, November 5. Wayne State beat the Morris branch of the University of Minnesota, 61-20, Hastings won their homecoming on a 38yard field goal in the closing seconds against Nebraska Wesleyan, and the people in Tulsa, Oklahoma will be crying for a long time, following a 77-14 shellacking at the hands of Houston Uni't vers1 y. A reminder: On Saturday, November 26, Peru State Cross Country runners will compete in the N.A.I.A. championship at Omaha's Elmwood Park near OmaJha University. Although many, students will be going home for Thanksgiving, I suggest that all who can, go and help the efforts of the Bobcat harriers. Peru finished third last year and is in contention again this year with only one defeat in twelve ·outings. The Centennials and the. Misfits are the intramural football champs for the 19-06 season. Congratulations fellows! Now that the football season is over the basketball bug is rolling around again as things look good for another fine season. How about another trip to Kansas City, Bobcats? It is fortunate that the Peru State campus is the campus of 1,000 oaks rather than 1,000 elms, because Dutch elm d i s e a s e threatens American elm trees with near-extinction. Life is 10% what you make it and 90% how you take it.

By Phil Starting in the middle of Octoher Coach Pilkington, Peru's Cross Country coach, talked several of the girls to come out for a little exercise, and this was the birth of girls' Cross Country at Peru State. "I'M JUST OUT TO LOSE SOME OF MY EXCESS," stated Nancy Guilliatt. "ME! I JUST LIKE TO RUN" said Pat Thompson. ' So, with these words and thoughts in their minds the girls took on the task of getting out of shape to get into shape.

Gary Viterise was placed as Head Coach of the girls, and whether it was his car or just the girls' ambition, no one will ever know, fifteen runners of the female sex started to show up for their regular work-outs. Most of the girls are just interested in running off some of that "ugly fat" and possibly get-

Herbster ting to know some more of the boys out for Cross Country iby asking for various hints on how to actually run the hills, slopes, and gullies encountered in Cross Country. Though some of the girls only come to practice occasionally, some have wished to have a meet with some other college to show their abilities. Since John F. Kennedy College, in Wahoo, Nebraska, has had a girls team since the start of the season Coach Pilkington asked them if they would like to run the girls. They accepted the challenge and ran here the 12th of November. · How are the girls in Cross Country? Nobody will know until after their first meet, but in · the meantime why don't you walk down to the Oak Bowl some afternoon at 3:30 and see. Maybe then you will understand why they call Peru "the school for runners." Girls too!!

Dr. Gomon Speaks To M.E.N. In the continuing effort to receive their chapter from the parent organization, the Delta Chapter of Mu Epsilon Nu recently successfully surpassed another obstacle toward the completion of this goal. On November 2, the fledgling Peru State College Chapter of M.E.N., the. honorary educational fraternity for men, held another. of their formal weekly meetings. Although all of these first meetings are important to the new group, this one was especially so since it was at this time that Dr. Neal S. ....,Gomon was inducted into the organization as its honorary member, thus· fulfilling another requirement in !becoming an official body on campus. Dr. Gomon accepted the offering with a short, informal speech, in which he compared the profession of education as he found it when he began his career as an educator, and the state of education in 1966.

Dr. Gomon pointed 'out that when he started teaching, it was considered indeed unusual for a teacher to remain in one position for more than two years; and, in order for a teacher to advance, both materially and in prestige, it was necessary for him to move from one system to another quite frequently. Then, contrasting the past with today, Dr. Gomon as!i serted that a teacher may n o w 1.

on its high ideals and the active status to which it has committed itself. This meeting was also personally important for several new members of Mu Epsilon Nu at Peru State College, because it was with this meeting that the seven pledges began their probationary status. 'If these new members successfully complete this trial period, and are then accepted into the group, this will ibring the total number of active participants in the organization to sixteen-all of which will be designated as charter members when the group completes the formal initiation process later this year. These probationary members include: Lorin Bartels, Oren Bednar, John Chasse, Bob Kelly, Dave Kennedy, Bill Massie, and Sam Smith.

StudentWives Club ~erves Community In November, 1959, the Peru State Student Wives Club was ~anized for. any women who is â&#x20AC;˘ wife of a full-time Peru stullent. Fifteen wives were then lalembers of the organization. The main objective of the organization is to carry out proiects that will help this community and surrounding communities. Past projects indude: assisting in the Heart Fund drive; presenting a flag to Dr. Gomon [or the Fine Arts Building to be placed in the auditorium; making stuffed animals and presenting them to the children at Bealrice State Home; Christmas caroling; and bake sales. In the spring of 196(} Mrs. Neal Gomon was made an hondrary member of the Student Wives Club. Recently, the organization hosted the tea given for the past homecoming queens during the home-

coming festivities. The wives are presently making stuffed animals for their annual trip to the Beatrice State Home. The goal of each wife in the organization is to receive a Ph.T. degree (Putting Hubby Through). A member receives this degree when her husband graduates from Peru State. In addition, the club enables the wives to get acquainted and to have fun. Meetings are held every other Wednesday and all those who are eligible are welcome. Officers for the 1966-67 school year are: Sharon Pattison, president; Carolyn Bedea, vice president; Shari Hagemeier, treasurer; Pat Michal, secretary; Bernie Kennedy, historian; and Charlotte Nedrow, reporter.

The Student Center was crowded and the students awaited The Rumbles' first appearance on The Campus of a Thousand Oaks. From 811 :00 p.m. the Student Center and the entire campus echoed the sounds of the music of this wellknown group of young men. There was a very large attendance of listeners and dancers alike, and it was generally felt to be a most successful dance. The sponsors for the evening were Mr. and Mrs. James Pilkington, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Johnson, and Mr. Elmer Nemec.

The weak points o{ Peru's game were the number of freethrows missed and faulty b a 11 handling on the part of the Peru roundballers.

By the way, last year's cage star, Mike Harmon, is presently serving his uncle-Uncle Sam, that is. All kidding aside, Mike was one of the top Peru State basketball players in rec e n t years. Although the football season was not a successful one, it is certainly encouraging to look at some of the statistics posted by an exceptional crop of freshmen. Charles Dailey was the team's leading rusher; Rich Guzinski proved to be an effective replacement for the injured Carl Satterfield; both Larry and Gary Colgrove ran with quite a bit of authority; and Dan Nix did a fine job of kicking PSC's extra points by shooting 12 of 15. John F. Kennedy's vigorous women's athletic program seems to be paying big dividends already, as the female c a g er s scored an impressive 88-66 win over a fine Marshalltown, Iowa team. Some interesting statistics ... Peru State's basketball team is blessed with an abundance of height this year with Jim Jasa leading the "high altitude boys" at 6'9", George Moore and Ron Snodgrass both measure 6'8", and Bob Lovejoy and Dick Estes scale 6'5" each.

Just then a little old lady with ow-white hair wrapped in a

worn blue coat happened around the corner. She walked to the puppy shivering in the cold, hesitated, and started on, then she turned around. She thought of the lonely week-end to come without her son and his family · around her. They had written, regretfully of course, that th e two sons in college had girl friends and couldn't leave and of some business party they must attend. She walked back, beckoned to the homeless puppy and then gathered him into a shopping basket she carried on her arm. He wagged his tail, laid his ears back and licked at h e r glove with all the gratefulness he could muster. At least she wouldn't ibe alone for Christmas now-neither would either of them.

Bill's Clothing & Shoe Store Wishes you a MERRY CHRISTMAS

All the joy and wonder of Christmas can be summed up in the story of four children who wanted to give their father a present, so they set out to find one that would express the i r love. Flowers were in bloom where they lived, and on Christmas m<>rning three of them came to their father with beautiful flowers, making him very happy. He smiled and then he saw the fourth child, who was mentally retarded, standing away fr~ the others; the father held out his hand to the child and he came forward carrying a ibundle of sticks, handing them to his father. The father took the sticks and opened his arms to the child with tears in his eyes. The child had given his father the most precious gift-the humble gift of love, the gift of Christmas. Dear Santa, Please give me a new pair of gloves, some rope, and a little , canvass and I'll show everyone how I can "rule" the world. I need those gloves for February. Devotedly y-0urs, Cassius Clay alias Mohammed Ali

HStrange Night" Theme of Christmas Drama "Pilate. Pontius Pilate." With these dramatic words the Roman soldier provided the final twist of irony which concluded the Dramatic Club Chris.tmas pre· sentation Dec. 7. The noble Roman had just related to Joseph, husband of Mary, that his son bore the name which would be steeped in infamy throughout the ages. The production, directed by Mrs. Gilbert Wilson, was entiled ''This Strange Night." It was set in the courtyard of an inn in Bethlehem during the reign of

Peru Student Wives Club Displays Christmas Spirit By CharlO!!e Nedrow Christmas came early to the Beatrice State Home as the Peru State Wives Club played Santa on December 10. Leaving Peru State iby car, the wives traveled over sixty miles to Beatrice taking with them over fifty dozen homemade cookies and twentyfive stuffed toys for the less fortunate. The toys will be distributed on Christmas Day to those children who Santa otherwise would have missed. The home at Beatrice is a state-operated facility for the mentally retarded of all ages. Be-

cause of the ex,pense and the time consumed .by the staff, it is often necessary for such organizations as the Student Wives to contribute both their time and talents to insure a happier Christmas for the patients. The joy and happiness reflected in the eyes of the :patients mirrored the true meaning of Christmas. In sharing the spirit of Christmas with others, th e Student Wives left Beatrice with a feeling of warmth and accomplishment known only to those who give.

0 Christmas Tree! By Lynn Sailors This is the time of year to buy your Christmas tree. At one time this was a fairly simple task. Grandpa went out to the looal woods, looked around until he saw one he liked, and cut it down. Of course as with everything else it's no longer that simple. Mom could never let Dad go out by himself. Why, who knows what he would come home with! So we bundle up Junior and off we go to get the tree. Junior thinks eight feet would be nice, but Mom explains that the ceilings are only seven feet and anyway, she would like to set it on the table. That way, the lights wouldn't get ibroken. Well, that settled it. The tree will be three feet so that it will fit the table. Now the florist has to complicate matters. Is it to be a long needled or short needled pine? Which will last longer, 1o o k prettier, and cost less? After a couple of hours of checking ·branches to make sure one isn't longer than another, or that there isn't a hole, you proudly carry home $7 .50 w o r th of Christmas tree. When you have added $15.00 worth of spangles and tinsel, and have given the tree five hours of faithful service, you have friends over, and can tell them, "Oh, it's, really nothing-nothing at all!"

Student Center Board Holds Position of Importance -On January--8, 1961, the new Student Center was opened on the Peru State campus, and the new Student Center Board held its first meeting. The Board, which is made up primarily of students, has served the students of P.S.C. as wen as other individuals, who use the Center's modern facilities. As is stated in the S.C.B. Constitution, "the purpose of the S.C;B. is .to coordinate, integrate, and delegate responsibility for furthering the social and cultural acttvities of Peru State College." In fulfilling ·· its purpose, the . !Board's actions have ranged from· sponsoring all-college dances to considering change in policy w1thin the Center. The Board has ·grown to 16 in number which includes 13 student re~resentatives, two faculty sponsors and the .Student Center Director'.

Although the Student Center Board is a relatively new organization, it is one of the most vital concerning student representation.

Protestant Outlook Given By Rev. Barry Rev. Leonard !Barry, Methodist chaplain at Omaha University and Creighton University, was the featured speaker at the Dec. 14, Newman Forum. Rev. Barry presented the Protestant outlook toward the recent ecumenical movement on Omilha campuses. A graduate of S.M.U., Baker, and Yale, Rev. Barry strongly advocated the completion of higher education by all metropolitan otudents. In urban Oma. ha alone there .are 15,000 students, many of. whom are "first generation college students." The problem lies in the fact that these commuting students regard (Continued ~n page four)

JANUARY 4, 1967

Delta ·Chapter of M.E.N. Is Nationaliz.ed In Brownville The Brownville House in Brownville, Nebraska was the scene Dec. 8, as Mu Epsilon Nu nationalized Peru State College's Delta Chapter, thus bringing to four the number of active units within the organization. Representaitives from each of the other existing chapters, plus those involved in the founding of Delta Chapter, were present at the banquet which ended Delta's probatio.nary status.. Afpha Ohapter led the list of visitors with 15 members in attendance. Eight members from Beta Chapter at Kearney State College made the journey to Peru, and one person from Gamma Chapter at the University of Kansas was witness to the Delta Chapter induction into Mu Epsilon Nu. Among the delegates from these chapters were the national officers of Mu Epsilon Nu, including: Jerry Stromer, President, from Beta .Chapter; Chuck Stewart, Vice President, representing Gamma Chapter; Dave Martin, Secretary, Al!)ha Chapter; and, John Claybaugh, Treasurer, once again from Beta Chapter. The initiation began with a full course meal, after which the meeting moved rather quickly to the business at hand. Leading

Scholarships To Be Given The Peru Achievement Foundation will award two Centennial Scholarships for each residence .hall-Majors, Delzell, and Eliza Morgan-for · the second semester. The selection of the recipients will be made by the councils of the residence halls. The sc'holarships will be $100 each and must be applied to tuition or fees.

the proceedings was the presentation of a national charter by National President Jerry Stromer to Delta's President, Gary Viterise. Next, fourteen of the fifteen men who estaiblished Del ta Chapter were administered the oath for new members, again by National President Jerry Stromer. Finally, the Mu Epsilon Nu oath for officers was administered 'to the leaders of Delta Chapter, which included Gary Viterise, Richard Dobbs, John Bohaty, Bill Bowen, and Roger Neujahr. The formal induction process over, the banquet then turned to a lighter note, as Dr. Donald 0. Clifton, a .Professor of Education at the University of Nebraska, was called upon to grace the occasion with a speeoh. Dr. Clifton, a professional educator, first called attention to the importance of education in our world today, and stressed the fact that teaching will continue to grow in importance throughout the years to come. Continuing on this theme, Dr. Clifton declared that he could never understand why teachers would never "own up" to their profession, for in his estiination education was second only to parenthood in its impact upon society as a whole. Moving on to other subjects, Dr. Clifton discussed the megapolis, or strip city of the future, and the idea that student teac'hers and young persons .recently graduated from Teachers Colleges should be sent into the slums of New York, and Chicago, and other major cities, in order to gain a better appreciation of the rea:l ~problems facing education at this time. Concluding his speeoh, Dr. Clifton advanced another of his theories,. whioh he has entitled the "bucket and the dipper." According to Dr. Clifton, everyone has a bucket which may be filled or emptied at intervals, and a

d1pper with which to complete this operation. To illustrate, when everything seems to be going right, the bucket is filled; in other words, people have been filling the bucket with their dippers. Conversely, when life is going badly and everything goes wrong, they are getting their dippers into the bu<:ket, and this is very irritating. Of course, &aid Dr. Clifton, this is a tWQ-way process, a n d some people seem to take morbid pleasure in being able to get into other people's buckets. Thus ending his speeoh with this topic, Dr. Clifton <:ongratulated Delta Chapter once. again on their success and wished them all the best, thereby concluding the evening's activities. Those present from Peru included the following: Loren Barte'ls, Oren Bednar, John Bohaty, Bill Bowen, Jc>hn Chasse, Richard Dobbs, Jack Gaines, Bob Kelly, Dave Kennedy, Bill Massie, Roger Neujahr, Sam Smith, Ken Stoner, Gary Viterise, Richard Zapara, nick, Dean Rosenberg, administration representative, Dr. Dodge, the faculty advisor of M.E.N., .and Bob Allen, who photogra!)hed the event.

JANUARY 23, 1967

Centennial Year Half Over The first semester of Peru State's centennial year has come to a close, and the Pedagogian takes this opportunity to recap in pictures and stories the Yarious events which characterized the past few months.

The 1966-67 school year was officially begun with !he traditional week of freshman initiation. The week was highlighted by an evening of games and goober juice. Here Phil Herbster administers the dreaded drink.

Peru began its series of convocations with a program featuring Dr. James Perdue, former student at Peru State. Other convocations featured the Don Cossack Dancers and Singers from Europe, Dr. Robert Manley from Scottsbluff, Dr. Ross Russell, Dr. Wayne 0. Reed, the Rev. Ben Duerfeldt. and the Dana College folksingers and dancers. The Peru art department presented se\'eral exhibits displaying both student and non-student creations. Also active was the dramatics department with its Homecoming, Christmas, and student-directed plays. The music department provided instrumental and vocal numbers for convocations and the band made several tours to local h i g h schools.

The Don Cossack Chorus and Dancers brought some of the majestic tradition of Europe with them when they appeared on Peru State Campus Oct. 20. Under the direction of Nicholas Kos¡ trukoff, the Chorus presented a splendid two-hour program. They are acclaimed by the New York Times as "among !he best choral group lo be heard in our concert halls."

Highlight of the '66-'67 fall semester was the Centennial Homecoming. Alumni from scattered paris of the country returned to share in the celebration. Among them were Peru's former Homecoming Queens ; Ceci Evangelist joined the select rank as she was crowned Centennial Homecoming Queen. The only sad note of the day w a s Peru's loss to Hastings with the score 13-7.

On Nov. 3, native Nebraskan Ted Sorensen addressed a Peru audience on the impact of !he "legacy of JFK." He said Kennedy made the Presidency "an everyday force in the o,veryday lives of all everyday Americans."

It is the hope of the Pedago-

gian staff that the next semester

will he an equally eventful and fruitful one for students, and administration.


"Strange Night.'' the Dramatics Club Christmas produclion, was pressented Dec. 7. Bill Bowen, .John Miller, Danna Henry, Don Dodge, and Jim Butts look upon !he newborn Chris! Child.

Ceci Evangelist was crowned 1966 Centennial Homecoming Queen by Dr. Neal S. Gomon and presentedi with the traditional red roses. Later she was crowned by her father al Homecoming dance.

Homecoming Honors\ To Ceci Evangelist

The crowning of Ceci Evangelist as queen capped the Home路 coming events of 1966. Ceci was crowned queen at the H9mecoming dance. The crowning of Ceci was the end of a day that featured various events. Early in the morning people saw many interesting displays by the various organizations on campus. At two o'cock, they saw Peru's football team fall to a tough Hastings team 13-7. At seven o'clock that night, the play, "Spoon River Anthology," was presented by the Peru Dramatic Club.

CONVOCATION THEMES HAIL CENTENNIAL YEAR Peru State is helping Nebraska celebrate its lOGth birthday by using the Centennial theme for convocations. The programs range, from light musicals to serious orations by noted speakers. The music and

drama departments of Peru have brought forth outstanding performances. Several noteworthy alumni have returned to speak on timely topics. Many of the convocations are being held at night in order that the community of Peru might enjoy them.

The popular drinking toast "Skoal!" goes back to Viking times when Norsemen's victory toasts were drunk from the "skalles," or skulls of their victims. The first Icelandic Parliament met in 930 A.D.

Misses Mary Mowry, Pat Knippelmier, Nancy Guilliati, Joanie Sprieck, and Ceci Evangelist were selected by ihe student body as

On the evening of Jan. 9 at "1: 30, 'Mr. Moor e' s elementary dramatics class presented a program of one-act plays. There were three. groups each responsible for ch-0osing and producing a play. The first play presented w a s "The Answer." rt is the story of a drunken degenerate who ·has accumulated the entire knowledge of mankind. Presenting the play under the direction of David Kramer were Bill B-Owen, Jerry Barnard, Greg Vaughn, John Webster, Steve Mason, Dianne Morrison, Ann Biller and Jean Wewel. Make-up work was by Dan Bolin and Mike Castle. The second play, "The Ma~que of the Red Death," was set in Italy during the Middle Ages.

The cast, under direction of Don Dodge, was composed of Linda Shanahan, Kathy Downing, John Miller, Marliss Cramer, Lowell Brown and Dave Alvis. Make-up work for this play was by Mar-


The third play was an oldfashioned melodrama entitled "He Done Her Wrong," or "Wedded But No Wife." In typical melodramatic style it tells the story of a young wife deserted by her ne'er-do-well husband. The play was directed by Chic Williams and Danny Kellenberger. In the cast were Chloe Miller, BaJ.ib Aylsworth, Patty Bindrum, Danna Henry, Dave Brown and Ken Brockman. Make-up was d{me by Ginnie Mullen. Intermission skits were given by Arnold Johnson, Rick Ray, Barry Ray and Jerry Ritonya.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE STUDENT CENTER FEE? A tjnpical question among studtmts as they realize their financial straits after each semester's registration is "Well, what am I getting for my $10 Student Center fee?" The Student Center was not built with the· intention. of providing a strictly recreational facility for the student body. It was built with the intention of providing areas to house a food service and a bookstore. The $20-a-year fee paid by each student, including night. school students, permits universal student use of the building. The Student Center is financed iby self-liquidating funds and these fees are pledged to the bondholders in payment for the building. Tax funds are not involved. The buHdting not only enhances the beauty of the campus but also provides a social center.

As most etf the students, faculty, and staff of the college will agree, nothing much more than emergency repairs ever happens all at etnce in the Grounds Department. !Each project is a result of deliberate, thorough planning, and is carried out with care and skill.

Most students and faculty . members have noticedi the large natural gas tanks 1by the driveway to the Majors Hall parking lots, .the delivery and removal of vents and large pieces of equipment at the heating plant, and large-scale alterations to the roetf and walls of the plant. This .is all ipart etf a change-over in the heating system from the old coalburning system to new, clean, efficient gas-i>urning equiipment. The college's electrical system is also being changed, with all wirin:g and the entire electrical ·system being mo v e d underground. Good news for those students who got rained on inside of the gym during registration for the second semester-the Grounds Department crew is patching the holes which let so much water into the building; however, the gym will have to lbe re-roofed one of these days.

M.E.N. In Prison For Day

Suddenly, the air splif to make way for the unearthly scream which captured the attention of everyone on the grounds; and, as we all turned!, the figure of an old man caught the eyes of all who watched. This was the. im..., age of an outcast, making th e daily rounds of his little world within the fences for a few precious seconds before he would once again 1be forced ib a c k through the deep, black, gaping hole from which he had recently emerged. The scream, in reality, was indeed from under ground, emanating from within the solitary confinement unit of !he slate penal complex. Also, the o1d man, who was in jail on a life sentence for the sex offense-murder of a very young girl, was indeed an outcast among outcasts, having served in solitary confinement since 1959, because of the threat to his life if he were allowed to join the general prison population. This is only one of the mimy sobering sights which greeted the visitors from Peru State College's Delta Chapter of Mu Epsilon Nu on their visit to the Nelbraska State Penal Complex in Lincoln, Nebraska.


Pa,se. a

begin in the 1best traditions of the old prison movies. Upon entering the complex, all visitors are relieved of any items which could aid the cetnvicts in any way. Everyone is then stamped on the hand, and each person must submit to being searched. On~e inside the unit, however, one learns that a modern penal complex differs greatly from the age-old conceipts of prisons, and set ideas must ibe rearranged. The Nebraska Penal Complex is subdivided into two parts, !he

reformatory and !he prison-the d6.fference being, of course, that the former allows much more freedom to its residents than does the latter. The reformatory is actually a dormitory tjnpe affair, where men sleep in bunks, have a television lounge, craft shops, music rooms, and are allowed to work unsUl{Jervised: on jobs such as groundts maintenance. Th e prison, on the other hand\ is the more classic of the two, where the men must stay in 5-lby-7-foot cells and are permitted out into the yard only at certain times, and then only under the constant supervision of the armed guards in the towers above the forty foot walls.

sight of all is the squat, grey building, enclosed separately by fences, which is known as soli· !ary confinement, or "!he Hole," The structure, which houses all those inmates who for some reason must :be watched carefully, is subdii vided into three parts, the worst of which is termed "dry cells." In these the resident is confined to a small cell with no bunk or running water and is placed on a very strict diet. In order to sleep, the inmate who is unfortunate enough to land in a dry cell is provided: with a mattress for no more than eight hours a night. On !he more posi!ive side, the Nebraska Penal CO!lliplex · is very concerned with the rehaJbil itation of its prisoners, and therefore conducts regular classes for .the inmates. All prisoners who have not earned the equivalent etf a high school dipletma are required to attend; these classes, although everyone is urged to take adrvantage of them. The classes cover almost all areas of study, and .they range from first grad!e level all the way to college work.

Another point of pride with !he penal complex is their Pris· Tours of the state penitentiary Perhaps the mo s t s!ar!ling on Industries program, in which the inmates are engaged! in skilled> work such as licenseplate making, agricultural work, and woodworking.

Although the tour of the prison complex provided an inter- · esting afternoon, most members of Peru's Delta Chapter of Mu Epsilon Nu seemed! somewhat relieved to .be on the outside once again. Many, however, felt that such a tour might provide a deterent to crime-especially where the young person is concerned.

"A lesser team might have panicked and lost their poise after losing their scoring leader." With Dean Cain and Wayne Heine leadling the way, Peru won with surprising ease. Cain, who hit five of his first six fielders, sparked Peru to a five :point lead at the five minute mark. The Bobcats were never agaiin outscored.

In most recent polls U.CLA. is a unanimous selection for the number one )basketball rating in the country. In the last poll they captured all the votes for first place. The main reason for this is the ibrilliant play of Lew Alcindor. Alcindor, in one of his recent outings, scored 21 field goals which ties the record held by Dave Stallworth, ex-Wichita star, and Cazzie Russell, Michi· gan alumnus. Alcindor ended with 45 points. At this point it looks as if U.CLA. is going to be tlhe team to •beat for the national crown.

Cain, with 23 points, was high scorer for Peru, with Snodgrass next w}th 19, Heine with 17, Rinne with ll, Estes with four, and Moore bringing up the rear with two points. Ken Sheridan, who led Northwest Missouri's team with 31 points, was the high scorer by a single player for either team.

·why Should I Care? Why IS it that on campus one may make the rounds of the varfous student groups and hear the comment "I should care?''. and then the next moment hear someone use the shopworn phrase, "Why doesn't somebody do something around here?" Far too many times these two attitudes a~e expressed in the sam~ hour by the same person.. Perhaps if some of these complamers would offer constructive suggestions' about the situations they are bewailing instead of sitting_ a'i!o:tmd blowing. steam, their comments would not fall on deaf ears. And it seems that these same people are the ones· who find time to gossip about others and then when you ask them to help, they say, "I haven't got time ... I have this and this and this to do!" There are few organization sponsors and officers who will not adniit that interest in these activities is, liter~lly, "dead." People say, "that business of going to meetl?-gs every month bores me to death. Nobody does anything, and· all I do is wish I were somewhere else."

Lindbergh Kidnaping

Exciting Mystery Kidnap iby George Waller is the story of the most dramatic crime of this century, a crime which shocked our nation. The time was a few minutes after the hour of nine o'clock on the evening of March 1, 1932. While most of the nation's people were preparing for bed, Charles Augustus Lindbergh, Jr., the twenty-month-old son of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, was taken from his crib in his parents' new home near Hopewell, New Jersey. This created one of the most exciting mysteries of all times, one aibout which few people know all the facts. Waller's Kidnap, now for the first time, gives all the details from before-the-crime to the capture, and from the capture to the trial and the execution, which strekhed over a period of four years, one month and two days. -Ann Ritter

of a Thousand Oaks"? Our campus has eight statues, six of which· are located in the auditorium. Five of those six were given to the college by the Fortnightly Art Club, an early college organization. The statue in the back of the upstairs of the auditorium is Horace Mann, the founder of free education. Mann was also responsible for the estaiblishment of special training schools f o r teachers. When the statue was presented by the class of 1909, it was originally in the lobby . of the Administration Building. At the ibase of the statue is the name "Emma Stebbins, Rome, 1863," the sculptress. The copies of the Reliefs from the Founiain of Innocenis at Paris, France, are located on the east and west walls of the back of the auditorium. The seven nymphs of the fountain were carved by Jean Goujon sometime between 1547 and 1549 during the Renaissance period of sculpture. These examples of low relief were given to the college by the Fortnightly Art Club. The reliefs were probaoly first located in the old chapel, which is now the gymnasium and were moved to the present auditorium when it was built in 1920. The plaster statue of the Greek orator, Demosthenes, is located in the northeast corner of the college auditorium. It is , a fulllength statue in-the-round of heroic size. The statue recalls the perseverance of the great orator who is supposed to have walked on the shore of the ocean with his mouth full of pebbles to improve his enunciation. It was presented by the Fortnightly Club in 1907. The original statue, made of manble, is now in the Vatican in Rome. A statue of Saint George stands in the northwest corner of the auditorium. Donatello, the sculptor, made the original in 1416. The original is now in Florence, Italy, in the National Museum. It represents the early Christian period and the killing of everything that was un-Christian.

Students Voice Opinions On Lee Oswald and Draft Dodgers


Phone 3922



In a recent survey conducted by the Pedagogian staff, two controversial questions were asked of over 200 students and instructors. The first question, "Should 'draft dodgers' be allowed to go to Canada and return to the United States?," produced numerous vehement replies. The votes tallied 182 "no" and 55 "yes" with only two declining comment. The reason behind this opinionation is perhaps the fact that the draft is such an immediate issue to the college level age group. Many people voiced rather brisk opinions including:

Karen Hoemann-"It should be made to be a legal offense-just the same as burning a draft card." Fran' Gyhra-"Men who flee to Canada to avoid the draft are nothing but cowards. If they want to share in the freedom of the United States, they should fight for it."

Joyce Wilkinson-"They ratfinks."

Mary McMunn-"They are not accepting their responsi1bilities and should not be treated as responsible people." Sheryl Barrett-" .. the guys that do it are finks." Lihby Cook-"If they can live with their own consciences." Phil Hel'bster-"Basically it's wrong because they aren't facing up to their responsibility. However, if a .guy isn't 21 he shouldn't be forced to be in a war he couldn't even v o t e against." Jim Dvorchak-"Only a coward would desert his country and g-0 to Canada."


Betty West-"It's not much more cowardly than the guys who 'hide out' in colleges just in order to avoid the draft; it's just that they are a bit more obvious with what they are doing."

Bobcats Tame Tigers Peru State College swept to a 93-84 basketball victory over Doane College at Peru Febr. 7. The Bobcats were led by Wayne Heine, East Alton, Ill., w h o . scored 30 points. Al Becher, Doane, scored the game's first basket at 18:21 of the first half. But then a Heine fielder tied the score and Peru led the rest of the contest. Hot shooting by Heine, who hit 5 of his first 6 shots from long range, and reserve forward Jim Tegelhutter, Syracuse, gave the Bobcats a comfortable 36-2·5 advantage at halftime.

points and Leslie Grant w h o tallied 17. The Bobcats, 3-2 in NCC play, traveled to Chadron for games Friday and Saturday night. Chadron, 5-0 in conference play, needs only one ·victozy over Peru to clinch at least a tie for the NCC championship. Whereas one Peru loss would make it imposstble for the Bobcats to repeat as conference champs.

Bobcat Tracksters Eye NCC Track Crown On Friday, February 17, the Bobcats of Peru State were to reveal their 1967 track team when the Bobcats competed in an indoor triangular track meet at Omaha University. They were to compete against Omaha University and Nebraska Wesleyan. Coach Jack Mcintire has numerous lettermen back and stands a good chance of challenging Kearney State for the NCC crown. Coach Mcintire will depend on the following lettermen to boost its track hopes; Tim Hendricks, Jim Watson, Ron Jones, Roger Neujahr, Jim O'Donoghue, Jim Hegemeier, Curt Holliman, Bob Lovejoy, Arnold Johnston, Elroy Arelleno, Dwayne Brettman, and Dick Estes. Several new faces will also help brighten the track outlook. They are Herman Greenlee, Richard Rech, Bob Ridenour, Bob Dixon, Cal Smith, Richard Warkins, Ray Uher, Mike Schlemer, George Goepfert, Gerald Wilson, and Mike Mulvaney.

Saturday, Febr. 11 was black Saturday for most of the nation's top-ranking college basketball teams. Five of the top ten lost and three others escaped disaster by rallying in the second half. Only the top-ranked UCLA Bruins and third-ranked Louisville scored decisive victories. Talk on the UCLA campus is about the status of Lew Alcindor. Rumors are spreading aibout the campus that Lew is thinking about joining the Harlem Globetrotters who have offered him a sum of $1,000,000 to play with them. Another rumor is that he is thinking of transferring to the University of Missouri. For those who are interested in Nebraska U., the Cornhuskers as of February 15, are currently in second place in the Big Eight Conference with a 6-2 record. Kansas is leading the conference with a 7-1 record.

Ceresco Experiment Proves Valuable

Overwhelmed and distraught by the Prosecutor's gruelling interrogation, Mary Magdalene angrily slaps the bewildered Gardener.

'What Do You Believe?' Fodor's 'Vigil' Asks Did the Gardener steal the 'body of Jesus of Nazareth-or did He really arise from the dead? This is the question that the jury will have to answer after the evidence has been presented by the crafty Prosecutor (Don Dodge) and the smooth Defense Attorney (Bill Austin) in the play, The Vigil, which will be enacted March 16 by the P.S.C. Dramatic Club. Called as witnesses are such well known personalities as Mary Magdalene ~Danna Henry), the first to see the supposed risen Christ; Saul of Tarsus (Bob Ber-

an), a character that completely reverses his testimony; and Pontius Pilate (Neal Bower), th;' strong politically-minded favorseeker. Others in the cast are the Gardener (Ken Brockman), Esther (Lynda Shanahan), Lucius (J. R Brock), Mr. Pinchas (Steve Mason), Joseph of Arimathea (Greg Vaughn), Lady Procula (Joan Bretthorst), Beulah (Marlis Cramer), Sadoc (Dave Alvis), Susanna (Dianne Morrison), Prof. Thaddeus (Bruce Larson), Simon (John Miller), Violet (Marcy Anderson), Mr. Woods (Charles Williams), the Judge (Bill Bowen),

Court Clerk (Danny Bolin), Court Stenographer ~ike Cast 1 e ), Courtroom Guard (Vince Sunderman), Assistant to the Prosecutor (Jerry Bernard), and Assistant to the Defense (Lowell Brown). The play is filled with suspense by the direct clash of two great criminal lawyers, each trying conclusively to prove his beliefs. The jury (the audience) is left with these questions: "Who rolled away that stone? Was it the Gardener? Or was it the risen Jesus?"

Editorially Speaking .... Are We Isolating Nebraska?

Names in the News If for no other reason than the sake of an astute conversation, college students owe it to themselves, at least, to be up to date concerning events. More imporfanf fhan this, however, is the fact that most of us will, in the space of a few short years, be called upon to vote intelligently in national, state, and local elections. The old saying that "a democracy depends. upon an informed electorate" compels us to read and listen, in order to keep abreast of the fast-changing scene of world affairs. Especially in this state, where there is a proposal under consideration to lower the voting age to eighteen, will it be important in the next few years for the college-age set to be informed. This quiz is designed to test your knowledge in the field of current events which have taken place over the last few weeks. By no means complete, this test should at least give some indication as to the extent with which you keep up with the news.

. . Nebraska is going to end up isolated in the middle of the United States. The people of Nebraska are still trying to Jive.Jn the past.. They are using a bill written in 1918 to· keep them behind. This bill prohibits the adoption of the daylight savings in Nebraska. · In 1918 Nebraska was a farming state, and had very few industries. The farmer got up at the crack of dawn . and worked till it was. dark, and paid very little attention to. the clock. · ·· Fifty years ago there was little traveling, and people were not very .interested in what states other than their own had. Now people travel extensively, and many times there are people who live in one state and work in another. .When one state has daylight savings time and another does not it proves to be very inconvenient. At the present time Nebraska is completely surrounded by states that h av e adopted the daylight savings program. Those that live out of state have to get up an hour earlier to get to their jobs on time than those that live in Nebraska. They do not benefit from the program's purpose of giving an extra hour of leisure time simply because they are so tired by the time they get home they do not want to do anything at all. . The shoppers find it confusing also. There is very little time for a person to get off work and shop because . the stores in Nebraska close one hour earlier than they do in any of the other states. This will hurt the economy of Nebraska in the long run. It is time for Nebraska to wake up and look around. 1.

Student Suppression-Who's Responsible? Does the student have a voice? This question has been asked by many students-individually or in groups on our campus, and it is very difficult to answer. I contend that the students should have a voice in. campus affairs and policies but at the present this so-called voice is being suppressed. Now here is the big question-Just exactly who or what is suppressing one of the students' basic freedoms? The administration hasn't issued mandates stating that' the students can't express themselves. The faculty, in several cases, have encouraged student expression. Who is left? The student himself. Last year the S.G.A. published a newsletter entitled the "Student Voice," but not many students submitted copy to be published. This year this paper has opened its editorial page to students who wish to express their opinions; but how many have? Everyone can look around himself and see that the outlets of expression are filled by active students which make up a small cross-section of the student body because the majority of the students do not care to do anything but sit in the Bob Inn or dorm and gripe. Students, if you want a voice, speak out through the available channels and you will be heard; if you don't want to do this-DON'T COMPLAIN. -Charles Williams

Mary' Is Victim

Of ~Felonious' Assault - BOOK REVIEW Mr. Jack Finney's main distinction as a published author is his ability to create, an aura of credibility around a story which usually portrays an absurd crime. Assault on a Queen, Mr. Finney's best-known book, exemplifies this style with its account of the ludicrous insult co mm it t e d against the Queen Mary by five ex-Navy submarine veterans. Set early one spring in the late l!t50?s, on an island near the City of New York, the novel depicts the tale of five non-conforming, nostalgic, navy submarine veterans, who, although representing different sides in the war of the 1940's, have the same basic love of the sea in their larcenous hearts. The story begins when one of these crooks discovers the old, sunken, German "U" Boat on which he had served in 1918 and decides to gamble on the

chance that it will ibe floatahle after all these years. Presently, after having found the submarine, the idea (which he hopes will make him filthy rich) evolves naturally. He believes that it would be quite simple and logical to "stick up" the Queen Mary in mid-ocean. Here, just in time to witness the last member of conspiracy as he is intrigued into the plot, is where the reader enters. The real story, however, does not begin until the old tub is raised and renovated, which includes the removal of several ripe World War I bodies. From here, the story progresses through the methodical and scientific planning of the scheme, and carries on until the · day of the blessed event. Through the use of trickery, the Queen Mary is effectively halted in mid-ocean; and three of the .(Continued on page 6, ·.column 2)

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: At a recent convo, it was stated that there was enough parking space for commutors if only some of them would park behind the girls' dorm. This may or may not be true. I admit that the recent enlargement of the lot on the avenue helps the parking problem considernbly. However, who wants to park there? It is so muddy when the weather warms up, or when it snows, that one can't even walk across it without getting his clothes and shoes full of mud. Why not use asphalt? It would rbe cheaper than putting rock on it all the time. This holds for all parking lots. Asphalt them! It would be cheaper in the long run. Now, as for parking in the girls' lot-there is not a good . sidewalk from there to the campus. One may walk along the sidewalk up the hill to the Student Center only to find that the doors are locked, and you have to walk clear around the building. How inconvenient and disgusting! Peru could be much improved by asphalting the parking lots. There would be less mud, less dust, and less parking confusion because lines could be painted to show where and how to park. Also, asphalt lots would improve the looks of the campus and make it look cleaner! How about it Peru, let's get with it! Bob Agnew Sophomore Peru State College

Magazines, Newspapers Widely Read Recently the Pedagogian took a poll of dorm residents, which was designed to find out what kind of reading material Peru State students prefer. Due to unfortunate circumstances and misunderstanding the poll was not as conclusive as it might have been-there was a relatively small representation of students who responded to the poll. However, the results are as follows: The initial question asked was, "Do you find time to read material other than that assigned by your instructors?" The boys overwhelmingly answered "yes," while of the girls who responded, 49 said "yes" and 21 "no." Both boys and girls read more daily newspapers than weeklies. Fifty-two of the girls found time to read magazines, while a great majority of the boys also did so. Popular magazines with the girls were Time, Life, Seventeen, Look, Newsweek, and Readers Digesl:. 'Favorites with the boys were Playboy, Newsweek, and Time.

Of the girls, only six of the seventy read extensively in the dramatic genre. Of these, the favored dramatist was William Shakespeare. Relatively few of the iboys read drama-those who did liked George Bernard Shaw and Tennessee Williams. 'Fourteen girls mentioned poetry as a favorite genre, and of these their favorite poets were Robert Frost, e.e. cummings, and Walt Whitman. Few boys mentioned liking or reading poetry, and those who did mentioned Shelley as a favorite. Fifteen girls out of seventy

read short stories extensively, ·While about half the boys who replied did so. Novels were more widely read than other literary types among boys, while eighteen girls read them. Boys found George Orwell and Aldous Huxley to be their favorites, while the girls preferred Steinbeck, Hemingway, and Irving Stone. Brave New World, 1984, and the James Bond Series were favored by the boys, while Gone Wil:h l:he Wind and Grapes of Wrath were popu1ar with the girls. It was found that very few of those who replied read much biography, autobiography, or history; however, history was read more extensively than the other two. Again, it must be admitted that the poll was not entirely successful in that it does not represent a true cross section of Peru State students.

Home Ee Club Offers Practical Knowledge One of the more active organizations on campus is the Home Economics Club. It is an organization made up of young women who are interested in home economics. The organization's predecessor was Kappa Omicron Phi, an honorary Home Economics fraternity that originated during the 1!129-30 school year. Mrs. Kregel, one of the present sponsors, was a charter member of Kappa Omicron Phi. The organization began under the leadership of Miss Edna Weare, who was then head of the Home Economics Department. After ten or twelve years of Kappa Omicron Phi, the chapter was unable to continue because of lack of college enrollment. At that time the present Home Economics Club was organized. The goals of Kappa Omicron Phi are followed by the present Home Economics Club. They are

to encourage appreciation of homemaking, to develop keen interest in the estaiblishment of happy homes, to further leadership and ability, and to keep in touch ·with current topics and trends relating to home economics. The Home Economics Club carries on the traditions of Kappa Omicron Phi, such as the Martha Washington Tea held every February using the recipe for the great cake obtained by fraternity members. The club also serves a United Nations dinner every fall. The final event of the school year is a dinner for all club members, at which time newly elected officers are installed. Peru State's Home Economics Club is affiliated with state and national college Home Economics Clubs and the American Home Economics Association. St ate conventions and workshops are attended by members each year.

To the Mini-Skirt

National conventions are attended whenever distance permits. Mrs. Kregel and several members are planning to attend the national convention in Dallas next summer. Meetings are held the second Monday of each month in the Home Economics Department at 6:30. Mrs. Sproul and Mrs. Kregel are the sponsors. Arlene Borcher is club president; Janice Wheeldon, president-elect; Carol Hawley, vice-president; C a r o 1 Henderson, .secretary; Mary Ellen Jacobson, treasurer; and Janice Johnson, S.G.A. representative. Virginia Mullen, state representative from the club, is presidentelect of the state organization.

Eliza Morgan Is Joanie Phony? "Mary Lyon" Of (ACP)-For years there has M"ddl West been little doubt. about cartoonist 1 e Al Capp's political leanings, says the .. University of Minnesota Daily. For one thing, the gentleman simple detests protestors. His latest caricature of them is "Joanie Phonie," a long-haired, long-nosed folksinger ·who, in Capp's eyes, is clearly a fake. Just as clearly, "Joanie" is modeled on folksinger Joan Baez, though Capp denies it. The real Joan is indignant and threatens to go to court unless she gets a retraction. She says she .doesn't mind the caricature, but only objects to Capp's using it to ridicule the whole protest movement. Capp is blasting the entire movement, but so what? That's his right, even if his satire is "stupid" and "vulgar," as Miss Baez contends.

By Jean Wewel The dormitory for women at Peru State College bears the name "Eliza Morgan Hall," in honor of a teacher who came to Peru from the state of New York in 1872. For 26 years she held the position then known as "preceptress" of the dormitory, and teacher of rhetoric, literature and general history-a position comparable to that of dean of women today.

Arlene Borcher, Carol Hawley, and Janice Wheeldon presided at the Tea Table. Guests were greeted by Mary Ellen Jacobson and Connie Rademacher, with Mary Beth Kernes and Carol Henderson in charge of the Guest Book. Background music for the · Tea was furnished by Dave Williams, our Peru Stater who is a piano professionalist. (Continued on page 6, column 3)

The first regular term of the school at Peru began in 1867. The school was entering upon its fifth year when General T. J. Morgan was elected principal and Miss Eliza Morgan, of the same name but not related, came into (Continued on page 6, column 4)

The 1960's found students concentrating on the Ouija Board, shift dresses, and ratted hair. In our year of 19,66 the rage is pierced ears, long-haired boys and short-haired girls, centennial beards, and mini-skirts. Progress does not seem so very slow after all, yet it is amusing to look back and find the differences in generations.

The Campus of One Thousand Oaks has been the haven for many generations in the past. Their short time on campus left memories of the activities and antics in which they participated. Let us take a look at the fads and fashions through which Peru State has progressed in its past. In the "Roaring Twenties" freshmen wore green caps for initiation, and kept wearing them until the first snow. Now, aren't freshmen today thankful f o r progress! It was also the era of the Short-short skirt, and it is doubtful that a vote of the male population today would c a s t against the dress of yester-year. Mt. Vernon Hall, then the coeds' dormitory, kept a "chip basket" containing chips of interesting information from their dormitory.

The ml-84 loss to Wayne State dropped Peru's season record to 12-13. Peru State held a one point lead :with W seconds left in the game, but Wayne Heine then missed a 20 foot jumper and Wayne rebounded. Then, after a time-out, Wayne State's Bob Strathman sunk an 18 footer and the Bobcats were down by one. Peru 1brought the ball downcourt and with 21 seconds left Dean Cain's shot was short. Strathman was then fouled and he calmly sank both free throws. . With 12 seconds remaining Peru tried one last shot, 'but again it was short and Wayne State re1bounded and scored. Balanced scoring was the key to Wayne State's victory. Five of their players scored in double figures. They were: Ron Hintz, 23 points; Bob Hope, 1&; Bob Strathman, 17; Dave Schneider, 14; and Dean Elofson, 10 points.

Head Bobcat roundball mentor Jack Mcintire has recommended the following for varsity letters: Dean Cain, Bill Rinne, Dick Estes, George Moore, Jim Tegelhutter, Wayne Heine, Bob Lovejoy, and Leon Portrey. In a recent poll taken iby numerous sports writers, they selected an All-American team made up of the best college players of the past twenty years. These selections were: W i 1t Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Oscar Robertson, Bill Bradley, ana Ed Macauley. Dean Cain led the Bobcats in scoring this year with an average of 16.8 points per game. He also held the individual high game total with a 34 point salvo against Culver-Stockton. Wayne Heine also averaged in the double figures as he averaged 13.4 points per game. Heine led the Bobcats in rebounding as he grabbed off 2{)4 caroms for an average of 10.56 per game. Ron Snodgrass, who played in 16 games for the Bobcats this year, scored 316 points to bring his career total to 1369 points. and move him into second place in all-time Peru. scoring.

What's It To You?

,-WARNING! ' '.Mailboxes are protected by Federal law, and pranksters or vandals who damage or destroy the boxes and their contents may ibe in for a heayy fine or imprisonment, Postmaster Craig warned today. At the national level, some 25,000 mail receptacles were damaged or destroyed in the past year. It was also noted that 2,641 persons were arrested in the year up to last June 30 for damaging or destroying mail receptacles. The Peru Postmaster quoted from the law: "Whoever willfully or maliciously injures, tears down or destroys any letter box or other receptacle intended or used for the receipt or delivery of mail on any mail route, or · breaks open the same or willfully or maliciously injures, defaces or destroys any mail deposited therein, shall be fined npt more than $1,000 or imprisoned not more than three years." This applies to all mail recep-

Kate's Cast Announced (Continued from page 1) Actually the musical is a "play within a play" in which the principle characters in each play are analogous. Lilli plays the part of Katherine, a willful, violent, sharp-tongued girl who is betrothed, against her will, to Petruchfo, a "man-of-the-world" fortune hunter, played by Fred. In the Taming of the Shrew portion of the play Kate throws dishes, etc. at Petruchio, and is finally "tamed" by Petruchio by means of starvation and similar methods. As might be expected, in the end Petruchio and Fred each "get their girl."

tacles and the mail in them, even though the boxes are bought by citizens and are their personal property. Pranksters-and especially children who do not know any better-should be made to realize the seriousness of their actions, the Postmaster said. "A $1,000 fine or a term in jail is enough to take the humor out of any prank." Often the mailbox damage is the work of youths, who do it for "kicks." "And the courts have sh-0wn little sympathy for this youthful means of expression."

"What's it to you?" These words have !been used innumerable times as an insolent reply to what was probably an annoying question. To most of us they mean, ''Of what importance is it to you?" This "shopworn" expression can also 'be a serious question, such as the one which follows-"Of what importance is a book to you? What is it to you, anyway?" To some, it is probably a rectangular, three-dimensional object that just "lies there" until it is picked up and moved. It neither does nor says anything significant, so it can't be of ·much consequence. This a t t i t u d e ,

Police Draft a Possibility? (ACP)-Twenty years from now college students may have to face a police draft as well as a military draft, the director of the public safety program at Wayne State University predicted recently. Donald Stevens, in a Daily Collegian report, said that "if the nation's police departments are not able to substantially increase their work force within the next 20 years, some type of draft or recruitment program will be necessary to maintain the operation of law enforcement agencies." Inadequate wages are not the main deterrent to police work, S te v ens maintains. "A high school graduate with no experience can be hired immediately by the Detroit Police Dept. at a starting salary of $7,340," he said. ''This is a higher annual wage than many Wayne graduatel_earn at their first jobs." ''The image, concept, and employment conditions of today's local law enforcement agencies discourage men interested in police work." Stevens, who holds a master's degree in police administration from Wayne State; criticized "an-

tiquated traditions," such as the use of squad cars for all police assignment (he advocates scooters for some jobs) and the lack of adequate training for policemen. ''The state has established laws to license 'barbers and hair stylists, but Michigan does not have any requirements concerning the training of police officers who work for municipal police departments," Stevens said. that word of the exploit will be sneaked t-0 the outside, which does indeed occur; and, the second of these unconsidered likelihoods is the inevitable clash of personalities which would naturally take place under the circumstances. Human relations among this group !become more and more strained, and the tensions between the characters continue to mount, until this turn of events provides the climax of the book. Hardly destined to remain alive through-Out the ages as a classic, the book does nevertheless provide several engaging hours of amusement for the reader. Assault on a Queen is well written, easily read and understood, and although weak in several areas, generally interesting and entertaining. -Jack Gaines

It may ·be an instrument of torture, used to keep the unfortunate victim from pursuing more worthy interests. This, of course, is the supposedly universal view taken by the student. Again, a ibook may be a means of escaping the humdrum life that most of us think we lead, for it enables us to travel to faroff places and do wonderful things. Perhaps it serves as a path to revelation-pleasant or unpleasant. It could ibe that it is a mirror in which we see ourselves clearly for the first time, or it can be a powerful weapon for the forces of creativity and destruction alike. And a book can be a kind of time machine; it can carry us back to an era as ancient as life itself; or it may take us into a land of the future, looming dark and forbidding and yet bright and glistening. Perhaps it is just an expression of truth-about what? That depends on what you're searching for. The purposes books serve to different people are too numerous to name, but these are a few of them. It is likely, too, that a ibook has meant all of these to each of us. The important thing to remember is that it can mean only what we let it mean-it can be useful or treacherous. The individual must be ever diligent and watchful to keep it a source of light, and never allow it to deepen the darkness-his own or anyone else's.

ELIZA MORGAN "MARY LYON" OF MIDDLE WEST (Continued from page 4) the "West." Her ideals for useful, honorable young womanhood, like those of Mary Lyon, founder of Mt. Holyoke College, entitles her to be remembered as the "Mary Lyon" of the Middle West. In appearance Miss Morgan was slightly below the average stature, with dark eyes and br-0wn hair. She had an erect carriage, a light step, and a pleasant, serious voice. Her apparel was always faultless. Her tailored costumes, of elegant material and cut, were few in number but appropriately chosen. Each autumn she arrived in Peru from New York, cheery and alert, and masterfully took up her work of making a home for a large number of "dormitory girls." Peru had the only state normal school in Nebraska, and students came from distant parts of the state. She gave good sound advice that many a girl followed through life. A policy which she recommended, as well as followed, was, "Do not take offense at any slight or insult. Ignore the slight, give it n-0 thought, and show no sign of having felt the insult." The years went by, and when Miss Morgan retired from teaching at Peru in 1800 she spent several delightful years in Washington, D.C. She attended many sessions of Congress and the second inauguration of President McKinley in 1900. Miss Morgan then made her home in Rochest-

News Commentator Hlavacek To Visit Peru State March 28 John Hlavacek, televisionNews Analyst for K'MTV Channel 3, will serve as visiting lecturer at Peru Tuesday, March 28 at a convo in the College Auditorium at 8:00 p.m. Mr. Hlavacek, an accomplished foreign correspondent with more than two decades experience in the Middle East, Asia, and Cen· :tral America, is the producer and host of the "Hlavacek Report." This news program is an indepth, expanded study of the major happenings, trends, developments and personalities that make world headlines. In addition, he presents special news programs and "The World Today," a series of half-hour interviews with prominent personalities.

John Hlavacek, KMTV News Commentator, recently returned from Viet Nam and will speak :to Peru students about i:t following Easter Vacation.

SGA Presidential Elections Today Before a relatively small segment of the student body, candidates for president and vicepresident of next year's Student Governing Association presented their platform March 1'5. Current SGA President Ron Kroll, introduced the candidates and reminded the student body that they should vote for the president-vice-president team of their choice rather than vote the splitticket. Bill Bowen, vice-presidential candidate running with Ken Stoner, presented his platform first. Bill expressed both he and Ken's interest in the SGA and said, "We both desire to do the best job we can if elected." Bill said of Ken, "when you want something done right see Ken Stoner. He has the ability to do things in a fast and fair way." The next speech was delivered by Allan Burr, also a vice-presidential candidate. Allan's speech eonsisted of five main points: a ·budget independent of state legislative control, more organizational cooperation, large scale . pre-planned activities, establishment of a judicial forum, and expansion of SGA representation. Presidential candidate Ken Stoner, explained his e:x1perience in government through his high school activities. He expressed his understanding of the campus and the need of the SGA to beeome a more active force in the lives of the students. He said, "This campus needs a change!" He promised to do his best to obtain extended dormitory hours for girls, a student-supported ··budget, and increased activity of all organizations. The final speaker was R o n Jones, also a presidential candidate. He e:x1plained that he was "very interested in student government work" and said that "through governmental experiences, I have an understanding of the knowledge of running for such a position." He expressed his intention to revise the budget so that the state of Nebraska :will not receive the profits. With

Regardless of the program, Hlavacek deals with the "why" of :the news. His search f o r "whys" has taken him out of the United States three times. In the summer of 19fl:Y he went to the Middle and Far East and

Viet Nam. Public interest in his first trip increased following his return home when he presented six half-hour prime time evening programs. This interest prompted KMTV to send him back to Viet Nam shortly before Christmas that same year. In this trip he sought out over 100 Channel 3 area servicemen to obtain their candid comments concerning the war. These interviews were featured on his nightly report and on three half-hour evening special programs. Early in 196'6 Hlavacek went to Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. He attended the Annual News Editors Seminar of the Columbia University, School of Journalism, and had the honor of being the first television representative invited to participate in this foreign aff.airs event.

Miami and Havana. He was one of the first free-world reporters to leave Cuba after Castro rose to power. Hlavacek taught English in a Chinese mission school in 1939 and joined the Red Cross when the United States entered the war. In 1944 he helped in the evacuation of Hengyang and was cited for gallantry. Later he was appointed United Press General Manager for India and Pakistan. It was while he was serving in this area that he met and married Peggy Barker, who is also a reporter and correspondent in her own right. The Council on Foreign Relations awarded Mr. Hlavacek its Carnegie Fellowship for an American Foreign Correspondent in 1957. In 1963· he received the Silver Anniversary All-American Award, presented by Sports Illustrated Magazine for football players who distinguish themselves after· leaving college.

Prior to joining KMTV's staff in the spring of 1964, he was a Miami-based correspondent for the New Yock Times and had been on the NBC news staff in

She is a 1927 graduate of Peru State College and presently an Associate Professor of English at the University of Omaha. Mrs. Brown stated, "My first real determination to become an English teacher and writer had its roots on the Campus of a Thousand Oaks." She feels that much of the credit for her success goes to Dr. E. C. Beck. Mrs. Brown gave the students this advice: "You can learn

more about how to become a good teacher by sitting under a good professor and listening." Mrs. Brown is one of the top ten Nebraska authors listed on the Nebraska literary map, and stated, "I am proud to be on the list!" Mrs. Brown spoke about three of Nebraska's best authors: Mari Sandoz, John G. Niehardt, and Willa Cather. She felt that these authors became great because they had the pioneer spirit.

Editorially Speaking ..


How Many? Editorials have appeared recently concerning different aspects of the Student Center-food, cleanliness, etc. These have come from the front side of the counter, and everyone's opinion is accepted. Because everyone is privileged to give an opinion, here is a view from b~hind the scenes. How many of you 1. Could prepare food for approximately 500 people, and satisfy everyone? 2. Have a choice of meat, vegetables, desserts, and drinks each meal, every day in your own homes? 3. Could go out and buy in a store, and prepare a meal for the amount you pay per meal· over a given amount of time? Stop and figure it up! As to the cleanliness of the dining areas! How many of you in your own homes 1. Get a clean cup each time you have another cup of

coffee? 2. Sit and tear up paper cups and napkins and leave them in a pile for someone else to clean up? 3. Put your cigarette ashes on the floor, or stamp out the finished product on the floor? 4. Sit and burn matches, paper cups and napkins, leaving them to mar the tables? 5. Get up and leave one table you have piled full of litter and "second" cups of coffee, and go to another table to start all over again? 6. Throw ice cubes, paper wads, straws, for the worker to pick up? 7. Leave your artistic talents engraved on your tables?

How many of you would be Willing to take the people behind the scenes into consideration, for what they are trying to do, to make your stay away from home more enjoyable? -Dick Cassidy

What Time IS It? What is the correct time? This is a familiar question heard on campus even though there are several clocks ip. each building. The only trouble is that the clocks usually don't agree on the same time. A clock in one room may be faster or slower than one in the room next to it. The time from one building to another may vary the same way. This makes it seem as if the bells ring at the wrong time because the clocks are at the wrong time when the bell rings. It is very confusing to both students and teachers. It is difficult to get to class on time. No one knows if the bell has rung because the clocks are all at different times. Setting the clocks on campus so that they will agree on time, and so that the bells ring with the time on the clocks may not get everyone to class on time; but it will eliminate that excuse for being late. -Mary Everhart.

DaffynishunDiscotheque: Where the sacroili-action is.

One of the holiest of holidays celebrated by those of the Jewish Faith is Yom Kippur, Qr the Day of Atonement, during which the Jews of the world fast for 24 hours in partial repentance for their sins. Yet for David Small, the rabbi of a diminutive N~ England congregation, hunger pangs prove to be one of the lesser problems of the period. Although this book is ·a murder mystery in the finest traditions of Ellery Queen, Ha r r y Kemelman, with Saturday the Rabbi Went Hungry, has added many new and unique elements to the tired, ol<l "butler did it" theme. Included among these innovations are an amateur detective rabbi, who uses the subtle Talmudic logic of the Jews to solve the murder, a congregation squabbling over a new addition to their temple, and a Catholic chief of police who is constantly baffled .by the workings of the rabbi's mind. The book opens innocently enough, on the eve of Yorn Kippur with the rabbi making preparations to fUlfill his holiday obligations to the congregation. The action soon intensifies, how· ever, as later that evening, the alcoholic Isaac Hirsh is found dead in the garage of his home, presumably from car.ban monoxide poisoning. Several things con-

Campus to Campus By Ruth Rathbun At Hastings College Raphael Green presented a film lecture entitled "The Two Berlins" March 7 at 8 p.m. in Bellevue House. Illustrated with color films of East and West Berlin, the forum was sponsored by the Bellevue Cultural Area committee. Mr. Green sees the two Berlins as "a testing ground for the East and the West. Never before have two such cities been seen upon this earth." The witch-craft thriller, "The Crucible" was presented on Febr. 21-25 by the drama department of Eastern Montana College. "The Crucible" is a recounting of the witchcraft trials of Hffi2 in Salem, Massachusetts. A ten-man committee made up of eight faculty members, an undergraduate and a graduate student has been appointed to investigate application of the "pass-fail" course grading system at Central 'Missouri State, according to Dr. D. W. Tieszen, Dean of Instruction. Dean Tieszen stressed that the use of the pass-fail system at Central Missouri State will not institute a complete change-over from the present grading system but will affect probably only five or six courses. "The value of such a system," Dr. Tieszen said, "is that it will allow a student to experiment in courses in which he would normally be reluctant to enroll for fear of jeopardizing his grade-point average." With spring just around the corner, many girls' thoughts are beginning to turn to the new look in the season's fashions. Sigma Gamma Tau is presenting their Spring Style Show, "Our Bright Sight" at Concordia Teachers College. The show will feature 36 spring outfits furnished by Stylecraft. There will also be a luncheon served after the fashion show.

BOOK REVIEW cerning the death point to suicide, however; and this fact prompts the appearance of an insurance investigator who sees an opportunity to welsh on one of his company's policies. In the meantime, Raibbi Small has buried the poss]ble suicide victim in a prominent location in the cemetery, thus violating a strict decree of the synagogue and angering an eminent benefactor to such a point that he refuses to make a donation to the new addition to the temple. Next enters the middle-aged architect, who sees in the new temple an excellent opportunity to improve upon his record of building only· super-markets. Wanting the contract for the Synagogue very b ad 1y , he promptly suggests that a circular road, built around ihe graveyard in such a manner as to exclude ihe questionable body, w o u 1 d solve the problem very neatly. Raibbi Small, however, who never could see the need for the new addition in the first place, refuses to listen to this solution, becomes highly principled over the transplanting of bodies, and submits his resignation to demonstrate his displeasure. With this action, the main plot and the sub-plot are solidified, and the stage is set for the rabbi to become an amateur detective in search of clues to help in the solution of the strange mystery. From this point, through the climax of the story, the reader is lead from suspect to suspect as the evidence against each one is first compiled and then dismissed, until the rabbi, who was the first to establish the fact that a murder had been committed, again is first to discover who the murderer is. Thus, the story is happily ended; the mystery is solved; and the rich benefactoris pacified, donating enough money to build a new addition to the temple.

Survey Reveals Students Disapprove Of "Pass-Fail" System



Students at Peru State werel recently asked their opinions ori') the question, "Do you feel a'l grading system whereby the student would merely ;pass or fai would ibe beneficial to Per State?" Of those surveyed, the tally was l& "yes," and 56 "no," and four "undecided." Some of the comments are printed ibelow. Phil Bruil:o-"Yes. But only if the passing scale is raised. This would reduce friction between students as far as competition, which can be a bad thing." Joe Keys-"No. Because it is the present ;policy of the U.

What About the Draft? "Hup - Two • Three - Four"those sounds, hardly music to the ears of male college students, are, even in normal times, sufficient to raise more than a few questions concerning the draft. Especially now, however, in view of the fact that the present Selective Service Act expires in July, and in the wake of conflicting reports from the President, the President's Commission, and Congress, millions of draft-age youths are inquiring into their chances of being drafted, and the effect which the forthcoming alterations in the Selective Service System will have on them. Some of the most often asked

questions, and their answers, according to the latest available information, follows: HOW SOON WILL THERE BE CHANGES IN THE DRAFT SYSTEM? By July 1, 19£7, Congress must approve an extension of the existing authority to draft men for the armed services. The new law is very likely to provide f o r changes in the current system.

There the carefully selected college graduates receive 17 weeks of intensive, highly specialized training. Upon graduation they are commissioned as ensigns in the Coast Guard Reserve and serve on active duty for three years. Those qualified may be offered flight training. Coast Guard officers receive the same pay and benefits as officers of other Armed Forces. Included are 30 days of annual leave and free medical and dental care. Peacetime duties of the Coast Guard include law enforcement, search and rescue, oceanographic research, marine safety, and the maintenance of aids to navigation. Information on the U. S.

SURVEY REVEALS STUDENTS DISAPPROVE OF 'PASS-FAIL' SYSTEM Continued from page 2, Rob Parker-"No. There would be difficulty in transfer." ....., Don Dodge-"No. It puts no premium on individual initiative. Besides, what would we do with the time allotted for Honors' Convo?" Dan Johnson-"! believe the grading system is appropriate the way it stands. Our educational system is progressive from year to year, and thus a person should also be graded along these progressive lines. Besides this, it would be rather difficult to set up where passing and failing would be located because so many different types of mentalities would be encountered."

Recent developments at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebmska, have involved a crusade by students for "academic freedom." Three facets of this program have included the free university, the Student Bill of Rights, and Hyde Park. On certain days at certain iimes, one is likely to find a group of NU students sitting in the lounge in the Episcopal Student Center, discussing Buddhism. There may be books lying about such as "The Way of Zen" and "What the 'Buddha Taught." At time of writing this particular "class" consisted of 23 NU students and an "instructor." So far there are 23 such courses offered in the curriculum of the "free university,'' described as "an attempt to supplement NU's curriculum." Terry Tilford, who teaches the Buddhism course, is a 1964 graduate of Creighton University and teaches English for the extension division of Nebraska University. The no n - university-sanctioned class Iasis as long as the participants want; the attendance is op· tional; and there are no tests or grades. When asked why he felt that such classes were necessary, Mr. Tilford replied that educartion should be a dialogue between the student and the teacher, and this was an all-too-rare occurrence. Most of the time students sit in even rows and hear 50-minute lectures, with little discussion. The free university is dedicated to dialogue and opposed to lecture. The free university, its advocates feel, is free in ;both an intellectual and a financial sense. Some of the courses offered include: modern existential theologians, psychology of humor, psychedelic drugs, theories of Communism, human reproduction, and the Negroid· stigma. Graduate students, professors, and laymen, such as doctors and lawyers, teach the courses. Perhaps the free university may fail, but its participants feel it has real merit.

The UOLA Bruins, behind sensational sophomore Lew Alcindor, finished the regular season unbeaten with a 26-0 record. The Bruins will now enter the NCAA championships as the favorite to take the national crown for the third time in four years. The Nebraska College Conference selected its 1966-67 all-conference team. The quintet chosen included: Dean Cain, Peru State; Jerry Bartak, Chadron State; Glen Mays, Hastings; Ji rn Rhodes, Chadron State; and Bob Strathman, Wayne State. Husker basketballer Stuart Lantz was named to the District 5 All-American team ·by the United States Basketball Writers Association in Look Magazine. He has also been selected for the Associated Press All-Big Eight squad. Turning to baseball, Cincinnati pitcher Ted Davidson, shot twice by a pistol, will probaNy miss the first month of the season. His wife has been charged in connection with the shooting. Nebraska sprinter Ch a r 1i e Greene won the 60-yard dash for the third straight year at the annual Indoor NCAA Track and Field Championships. He was clocked at 6 seconds flat. Defending NCAA cage champion Texas Western won't repeat as champion. Effective March 13, the school's name will be changed to the University of Texas at El Paso.

'ManE Brain Has Processing Unit' Say Research Psychologists Psychologists have been studying how to teach the mind to think for more than 60 years. After studying various animals and completing research devices, psychologists believe the answer lies in the processing unit of the ibrain. The ibrain is divided into a storage unit and a processing unit, the latter's capacity being limited. It was found that the average human can retain and repeat back only about seven unrelated digits.. Therefore, because the result of a problem usually involves more elements than seven, the solution or element can be overlooked. Also, an individual, in reaching for a solution, may even begin with the wrong elements. The following principles may be of assistance in solving various problems: 1. Study the elements of the problem several times until you get the total picture.

6. Talk over the problem with others. An individual must keep hi s mind open for new solutions and should not waste time on unsuccessful attempts.

A White House commission on the draft has recommended that no further college undergraduate deferments be allowed; however, the President has taken no stand on this matter, so the chances are that they will be continued. WHAT ABOUT POST GRADUATE DEFERMENTS? There is a good chance that all deferments, except those for students training in certain fields vital to national defense such as medicine or dentistry, will be abolished.

IF THE PRESIDENT'S PROPOSAL TO DRAFT 19-YEAROLDS FIRST GOES INTO EFFECT, WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THOSE OLDER MEN? One spokesman has said that no one over the age of 19 would be drafted unless the d r a f t boards were unable to meet their quotas with 19-year-olds.

The Pills Drivers Shouldn't Take A New Jersey housewife recalls after a near fatal accident that ":the road seemed to billow up and down. Speeding cars and trucks were all around me, but I couldn't make my eyes focus. A huge bus let out a terrific blast on its horn. I had veered out of my lane, and the bus had missed us by inches. Only by gripping the steering wheel with all my might was I able to guide the car into a gas station and stop." It was discovered that a few hours earlier, this young mother had swallowed a sedative prescribed by her physician. A Texas psychiatrist became aware of these possible side effects of seemingly harmless medication when he discovered that in a 90-day period, of 68 patients taking the drug, ten were involved in minor and six in major accidents-a rate ten times higher than normal for a cross section of the population. Any drugs from an aspirin or antihistamine to tranquilizers or antibiotics may slow a driver's reaction time and impair h i s driving ability. Pain-killing drugs such as intravenous anesthetics used in pulling teeth wear off quickly, but the results of the side effects may be long reaching. One physician states that a patient's reactions may not return to normal for up to two days. Sleeping pills containing barbiturates induce a hypnotic state for up to 14 hours so that the drug may 1be still in effect when a person drives to work. Many people, not knowing the risk involved, may use more than one drug at several times. They may take a tranquilizer in the morning, swallow an aspirin

or cough medicine for a cold ing the day, and then, after w have a cocktail. One scie says, ''Many people are d themselves with combina that we wouldn't dare try in laboratory, let alone ·behind wheel of a car." The most hazardous event can occur is when a person, taking a drug, drinks an alco ic beverage causing the perso experience what pharmacolo call the "escalating" or "po ating" reaction. A tranquili pill combined with alcohol comes a sleeping pill, while sleeping pill of the barbitu type can even cause death combined with alcohol. Many doctors agree that warning symbol such as a wh with crossbones should be pr' ed on drugs. When you take drug, be sure to be careful to drive or participate in type of activity that req · physical coordination. Your or the life of a comrade may saved by this caution.

'Vigil' Cast Haunted By Topsy, The Green Room Ghost The last review I wrote for this paper was under my own name. With this one I'd like to start a tradition at Peru State; namely that of writing under the name of TOPSY, THE GREEN ROOM GHOST. The Green Room is the make-up and final touch-up room for the actors before their entrance on stage. This. is the place where they get into character and so a review from TOPSY, THE GREEN ROOM GHOST, seems appropriate. Let the ghost of past plays and actors inspire today's actor to greater heights.

****** Peiruchio (Ken Carnes) aiiempis io lame his shrewish wife, Kale (Joyce Blackburn).

'Kiss Me, Kate' Is Order From Desperate Husband Does Fred still love Kate? Will Kate swallo;,,, her pride and go back to her one-time husband? If you want the answers to the above questions you should go and see Cole Porter's "Kiss Me, Kate." The College Choral Department is going to present the play the 11th and 13th of April. You will get to see Ken Karnes as Fred try to regain the attentions of his former wife Kate, played by Joyce Black!burn, as they put on Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew." The results are not only complicated, but also hilarious.

Debaters Plan Local Clinics The Peru State debate class under the direction of Mr. James D. Levitt is for the second consecutive year planning to present clinics in debate to several area high schools, including Auburn, Falls City, Humboldt, and Tecumseh. The students involved-Chloe Miller, Bernadine Fintel, Steve Knittle, Ric Ray, and Barry Ray -will demonstrate cross-examination debating on the topic, "Resolved: That evidence obtained by invasion of privacy should be legalized for use in court room proceedings." The dates planned for these clinics are April 5th, 6th, 10th, and 11th, after which the class plans to concentrate on other forensic events, encompassing extemporaneous ¡ speaking, oration, and oral interpretation. THINGS TO REMEMBER "The United States-'bounded on the north by the Aurora Borealis, on the south by the precision of the equinoxes, on the east by the primeval chaos, and on the west by the Day of Judgment." -\John Fiske Ours is an age which is proud of machines that think, and sus. picious of any man that tries to.

Except for the constant chatter of two intellectual morons who sat behind me, the night of March 16th was a wonderful spiritual and theatrical evening. When the final curtain came down I did not know whether to say "Amen" or applaud. I did both. True, the subject matter did effect the mood but this very subject matter could have made it a farce if it had not 'been for the masterful way which the vehicle was handled by this cast. It is not often that a critic will dwell on the good and skip over the not-so-good; however, that which was not so good (and there were places) was so minor that I will not even bother to mention them. If any actor wishes comments on his personal not~­ good points, please send your request to the editor with a can of ALPO, and she will forward the request to me at the kennel. The court room setting where a man was on trial for bodysnatching of Jesus lent itself to a parade of dialogues between the attorneys and a series of witnesses. Each person who portrayed a witness obviously had studied his character to the point where he submerged himself into the part he was playing. I witnessed a procession of interesting people and not one of them was a college student! From the entrance walk to the exit each character held true. Perhaps the toughest job w as that of maintaining interest in the action by the "silent wonders" such as the clerk, guard, stenographer, and the assistants to the attorneys. They had little or nothing to say, but their presence created an atmosphere that made the play real. We should not forget the traditional "situation setters," the maid and the butler (here it was the cleaning lady and the janitor), who set the mood of the play. A tip of the hat and a wag of the tail to all of them for a fine job.

becomes embarrassing. I w a s most impressed with the whole show. One item did distuvb me just a little and that was the Kennedy voice of Greg Vaughan. I do not know whether or not this w as intentional, but in either event Mr. Moore should have stopped it. It came across the footlights as farce, which has no place in this play. Darn, I couldn't get through the review without a criticism. Oh well, it's a dog's life!

The new president of the Student Governing Association elected in last Wednesday's election is Ron Jones and the new vicepresident is Alan Burr. Ron is a sophomore from Red Oak, Iowa, and his concentration is Business Education. He is a member of "P" Club and Blue Devils. He has been a member of the Cross-Country squad f o r two years and next year will become the captain of the squad. He is also the past secretarytreasurer of Majors Hall. When asked what his projected plans for the SGA were, Ron replied, "I plan to work for increased cooperation among or-

ganizations such as backing a large project. Also I want to change the budget. How can we operate without any money?" Alan Burr is a sophomore from Talmage and his concentration is Art Education. He is currently president of the Lutheran Student Association. He has played baseball for two years and football one year. He is also a floor representative of Majors Hall. Alan plans "to work in full cooperation with the new president." He also stated that he is in full support of a judicial committee and wants to see the budget changed and extension of organizational representatives from 15 to 20.

Parking Situation and Class Ethics Annoy Studen

Is Compulsory Attendance Really Collegiate? Now about this school's policy on class absences .... We feel this policy is a practical one . . . for high school students. But most college students resent being treated as high school students! Perhaps the administration fears that if grade points were not deducted for unexcused absences, the class rooms would be empty. But, I think they are underestimating the instructors and the student body. It's true that there would be a few students who would take advantage of the situation and consistently miss classes, but these are the students who skip classes regularly, regardless of school policy. They are really hurting no one but themselves; they are the students who will be hurt when they take their final examinations. The good student will want to learn the maximum possible while he is at college and will attend all the classes he can. He will not be discouraged from attending classes if attendance is made non-compulsory. Eliminating roll-taking each class period would give the instructor more time which could be spent to the advantage of the students who are there. Also, it might encourage the instructor to make his classes as interesting and inviting as possible. so that all the students will want to attend. The Deans would also be relieved of the burden of having to issue excused absences. The college years are a time of becoming an adult and learning to make decisions for ourselves. If these decisions are all made for the student-'how can· we form the habit of making our own correct decisions? Compulsory class attendance seems to have many more disadvantages than advantages! What do you think? -Chloe Miller

Dear Editor: Congratulations, class of 1967, you blew it! Professional ethics must be out this year because you certainly don't believe in them.

Permanents, Tinting, Bleaching

Another point which should be brought into the picture is that the remaining class of 1967 got together in a class meeting and decided to stick it to the January graduates. They voted that, instead of REQUIDSTlNG class dues from these early graduates, they THREATEN them with this obnoxious statement: "-anyone having been measured for caps and gowns, and not paying their dues, would not have their measuvements sent into the rental firm." BAH! How unprofessi:onal can one class get? From the time you set foot at Peru the members of the faculty h a v e tried to impress upon you the value of professional ethics, and now you show them how much you have learned by issuing a statement like this. I'm ashamed! Again I would like to say that any gift given to the college is a worthwhile gesture, but I think you are going about your collection in the wrong manner. I feel that a gi:ft should be given from the heart, not because a group of so called future ethical teachers compel me to contribute. I will contribute my $1.50 to the gift but feel the January graduates should know what the gift is.

Dear Editor: Well, here I am complaining about the parking lots again. They're still not paved, but I'm not talking about that this time. Remember the volleyball tournament? Well, during this sports spectacular, commuting students were not allowed to park in the lot behind the gym. This w a s saved for volleyball people. Who is responsible for taking away the rights of the student? The sign at the entrance to the lot says "for commuters"; it does not say say anything like "except in case of volleyball tournament."

This parking lot holds s·om where around fifty to sixty ca When this number 'Of cars is permitted to park there, wh are they supposed to park? other lots are full; besides, heard that the lot by the Fi Arts Building was to be sav for clerical workers and st This was just to make thin worse for the student.

I asked the "guard" why the were saving the lot for volleyba people; he said that it was that the girls wouldn't have t walk so far carrying their uni forms. Yet, we can carry our hooks a mile if need be. Women wanted equality-give it to them and let them walkt The parking lots should be on Continued on page 4, column 4







Recently, I (a January graduate) received a correspondence from a very conscientious fellow classmate in Peru. This letter was to inform me that the senior class was io combine dues with last year's graduating class and the class of 1917 to erect a bulletin board in front of the newly renovated Administration Building. In my estimatron, this is a wonderful idea; but, the problem is "Are They Going to Build It?" This question crossed my mind as I read a letter addressed to Robert Lierz. His letter so states that "a molded replica of a ·bobcat will be purchased as our gift." Again the same question-"Are They Going to Build It?"

Bobcats Split Pair With Crowder College The Peru State College baseball squad opened the 1967 season with a double header split against Crowder College at Neosho, Mo. The Bobcats thumped Crowder 9-1 in the opener, but then lost the night game 4-2 in extra innings. The two teams were scheduled for a second double header on Saturday, but it was rained out. Jim Tegelhutter, a big, hardthrowing lefty, pitched a twohitter in the opening game. The junior from Syracuse already seems to have the form that carried him to a 6-1 record with a 1.45 E.R.A. in 1966. Richard Ideus, junior from

Holmesville, and Steve Pattison, senior from Gering, backed Tegelhutter with some heavy hitting. Ideus hit a 390 ft. grand s 1am home run in the fourth inning. Pattison also had a solo home run in the same inning. Crowder scored their only run in the second inning on a walk, passed ball, and a single. In the second game, Crowder shortstop Tom Hagedorn smashed a two-run ninth inning home run to give his team a 4-2 victory. Crowder's surge had sent t h e game into extra innings with a two-run homer in the sixth off Jim Rains, Granite City, Ill. Continued on page 4, column 4

Congratulations to Dean Cain and Wayne Heine on being picked for honorable mention on the All-State Nebraska College Basketball Team. Murdock won its second straight championship by defeating Western 15-4 and 15-9 in the championship of the 21st annual Peru State Girls' Volleyball Tourney.

The UCLA Bruins behind sensational Sophomore Lew Alcindor and steady guard Mike Warren ended a perfect 30-0 season by swamping Dayton 79-64 in the finals of the NCAA finals. This could ·be the start of a UCLA dynasty for a few years to come, for the starting five this year consisted of four sophomores and one junior. Two ex-husker gridders signed pro football contracts recently. They were Ron Kirkland, with the Baltimore Colts of the NFL and Carel Stith, with the Houston Oilers .. of the AFL. The Atlanta Braves have signed an infielder they believe to be the smallest player in organized baseball. He is 5-foot-5, 135-pound Julius John Rizzotti of Long Island, N. Y. Rizzotti is an inch shorter and seven pounds lighter than second baseman Matt Galante of the New York Yankees.

Bobcat Thinclads Win Dual Meet 'The Peru State thinclads easily outdistanced Tarkio College 9838 in the first outdoor meet for the Bobcat cindermen. The meet was highlighted by Mike Mulvaney's record discus throw of 160'6Yz". This erased the 20-year old record of 1&8'6%" set in 1947 by 0. C. Yocum. Peru's cause was also aided by dual wins by Mike Schlemer in the 330-yard intermediate hurdles and the 120-yard high hurdles. The point-getting first places were garnered by Calvin Smith, 440; Tim Hendricks, mile; Rich Rech, 100-yard dash; Jim Hagemeier, 2'20-yard dash; Van Allen, two-mile run; Bert Faulkner, javelin; Mike Mulvaney, shot put; Gerald Wilson, pole vault.

Also, the KMTV newsman said, "I believe the Chinese are the main problem in the world today, but they aren't quite ready at the present to meet the rpower of the U. S." Hlavacek then spoke of some of the advantages the U. S. has over the rest of the world. The English language, television, the immigration of hard working, intelligent fureigners, and our system of government w e r e prime factors that he mentioned. When Mr. Hlavacek had finished his talk he asked if anyone would like to ask him any questions concerning Viet Nam. There were numerous questions asked that covered a great range of topics. Mr. Hlavacek answered these questions at great length and to the ibest of his ability.

Senator Rasmussen Speaks On Education Problems By Dan Koch The Peru State College Fine Arts Auditorium was the site for the meeting of the Nebraska Association for Student Teaching, on Sat., April 15. Dr. Kennedy served as Master of Ceremonies for this education meeting. The daily activities consisted of a speech by Peru State's Dr. Gomon, a musical presentation, a talk by Sentor Ross Rasmussen, a luncheon, a speech by Mrs. Anne Campbell, and a business meeting. Dr. Gomon, president of Peru State College, spoke to the Saturday morning audience on the subject of education. He said, "It bothers me when people say, 'if you can't do anything else, teach.'

President of Memorial Foundation Presents Catherland Convo Peru State College was honored to have for its Thurs., April 20 convocation, Mrs. Mildred Bennett of Red Cloud, president of the Willa Cather Pioneer Memorial and Educational Foundation. Mrs. Bennett spoke on the works ·of this great authoress and added that Cather's writings have made Nebraska known throughout the world. Mrs. Bennett told the audience that Miss Cather's books have been translated into many different languages. In Japan, especially, Cather's works are widely read. One of her books, Lucy Gayheart, is used by the Japanese as a textbook to teach English. Mrs. Bennett discussed twelve of Miss Cather's novels. She stressed the fact that most of the Cather novels were written using the author's own experiences. Miss Cather's characters always meet their problems head on. ''The characters do not es-

The painting will be included in the Centennial Invitational Exhibition Series for Midwestern painters. In addition to Mr. Wilson, there were three other artists included.

She also stated that Miss Cather's novels usually contained the them'e" of water. This was probably because she came from Virginia into what was called "The Great American Desert." Cather's books were rather racy for their time, although she did not use four-letter words. "That is the difference between then and now,'' said Mrs. Bennett. Mrs. Gladys Grush, Assistant Professor of Education and College Centennial Committee member, was· the emcee at the Catherland lecture. At the conclusion of her address, Mrs. Bennett was presented with a Centennial Plaque in commemoration of her contribution to Peru State's lOOth 'birthday celebration.

The morning session adjourned for lunch and a social period, after which the afternoon meeting was headed by a talk from Mrs. Anne Campbell, a good and· helpful friend of education. At the conclusion of her talk, Mrs. Campbell answered numerous questions which gave the audience a good view of her working capacities. The concluding business meeting was headed by three speakers-Paul Kennedy, R. W. McKnight, and Leo Skov.

Editorially Speaking ....

Compulsory Adulthood? Well-known in the field of adages is the pearl of wisdom which tells us that brevity and conciseness are two qualities for which every individual should strive. On th e Peru campus is a group which has indeed reached the ultimate level of advancement in this area. So precise are these individuals that they are capable of condensing two completely conflicting statements into the logic allotted to the niere space of one sentence. As incoming students arrive on campus each September, they are immediately subjected to the orgy of confusion commonly known as Freshman Orientation, an activity which was established in all sincerity as an attempt at helpfulness. During these few days, the new students are first of all told that they have now joined the adult community, and that they must discard their childish ways, replacing them of course with the thoughts and attitudes of mature, responsible adults. Then, practically within the same breath, they are told that unless they attend all but two college convocations and sit in their assigned seats, four grade points will be subtracted from their Grade Point Averages for the third unexcused absence. The college justifies this seeming inconsistency by saying that "there are benefits from such meetings which may otherwise be omitted from the student's college life." Several of these benefits establish the fact that the convocation programs are "educational, informative, and serve to promote spirit, loyalty and to increase the students' acquaintance in the college community." In addition, although never mentioned publicly, another benefit which is to be derived from convocation is that it gives the student the opportunity to catch a quick nap before continuing the drudgery of a class schedule. The practice of holding convocations is not in itself bad, and such college gatherings are practically as common as "keg" parties on campuses throughout the United States. Forced attendance at such affairs is, however, really helping to defeat the expressed purpose of a convocation. No amount of force will compel students to be cultured if the students do not wish to take advantage of such offerings. On the other hand, perhaps convocation is actually designed only to give the student a place to go on Wednesday mornings in order to keep hini out of trouble and naturally, the college officials are afraid that if attendance were not required, no one would attend. If this be the case, then possibly the fault lies with the quality of the convocations. Perhaps the selected programs do not meet .with the approval ·of a college-age audience. If this is true, a way in which to remedy this situation would be the adoption of a student board which was active, and lrad a definite part in choosing the bill of fare for Peru State College Convocations. In this way, perhaps, the situation concerning convocation attendance could be rectified.

on the public imagination is partially due to his departure from the glorification of war and death, a theme which has captivated an earlier generation of German youth and has left them with little but a sharp sense of betrayal. No defender of romantic values, Grass cuts savagely at the naive idealism of his literary predecessors. The chief target in his third and latest novel, Dog Years, is Martin Heidegger, the still influential German existentialist philosopher, whose warm embracing of Hitler's National Socialism in ihe rn30's earned him the !bitter contempt of many of his former colleagues and students.


Campus to Campus · By Ruth Rathbun "A 'Mini' Race, Extravaganza Dance, Gymkhana, Barbeque, Bike Marathon, and the Kingston Trio!" Doesn't this sound like fun? This was the Bike Bowl weekend schedule at Kearney State College two weeks ago. The "Mini" race featured 25 teams of four girls and two alternates from sororities, honoraries and dorms. The girls ran around the track four times, and each girl rode one lap. After the race, an Extravaganza Dance was held featuring "The Gestures." The Gymkhana featured a slalom driving course and a skilled parking event. Slater Food Service sponsored the event, including a barbeque after the contest. The Bike Bowl was to have 14 teams (84 riders) and travel 2·5 miles or 67 laps over the track. A.n evening w1th the Kingston Trio climaxed the weekend. At Central Missouri State College the bachelors had to be on their toes or they got "caught" on Sadie Hawkins Day by various Daisy Maes looking for husbands. The season opened Friday morning, April 14, and ended at midnight. It included such events as hog-calling, greased pig contest, and a Sadie Hawkins chase. Wonder what the results were?! Spring quarter has been approved as trial quarter for partial elimination of women's dorm hours by President J. J. Neumaier at Moorhead State College. Only those women who are 20 and 21 years old will lbe effected. The 20-year-olds must have written permission from their par1 ents before their curfew hours will be eliminated. MCS women students who are upperclassmen and live in residence halls will no longer ibe held to the magic hour of 2:00 a.m. with the passage by a trial "no hours" policy.

Scopes on the Monkey Trial Book Review In every account, the 1925 trial of John T. Scopes, who was accused of teaching Darwin's theory of evolution in the schools of Tennessee, is cited as a cultural showdown pitting fundamentalists against religious skeptics, conservatives against radicals, and fear of change against freedom of thought. Yet according to the man who was at the center of the controversey, the trial consisted of much more than a cultural confrontation. To illustrate this, John T. Scopes, in the autobiographical book, Center of the Storm: Memoirs of John T. Scopes, recalls some of his own personal observations of this fa· mous "Monkey Trial." Tracing the subtle history of this event from opening to closing, Mr. Scopes first establishes that his part in the drama w a s gained by default. The reason for this was that he was the only available high school teacher left in the littie community of Dayton, Tennessee, during the summer of 1925, when the local chamber of commerce decided to initiate a publicity campaign to establish some fame for the town. In fact, at the time of the trial, Mr. Scopes asserts that he was uncertain as to whether he h ad ever taught evolution or not. Nevertheless, being young and amiable, he was quite willing to become a pawn in this plan which had begun as a mere stunt. The town's reaction was predictable, and by the day of the trial, the townspeople h a d whipped themselves into a frenzy which was appropriate for

such an emotion-packed Propaganda was seen every where-stores displayed posters. and when the fateful day ar rived, a large Chicago radio station was on hand to provide the trial with complete coverage. The lawyers involved in ar ing the case-William Jennings Bryan, who handled the prosecu· tion, and Clarence Darrow, wh°' acted as the defense counsel_. provide perhaps the most interesting elements of the whole affair. The lawyers played their assigned roles with eloquence; as Scopes remembers, the acting was fabulous, and the routines which the barristers performed during the trial were done well enough to appear on the stage. Inevitably, as was predicted by Clarence Darrow, Scopes was convicted of teaching evolution in Tennessee against state law and was fined $100. Just as in· evitably, however, this decision was reversed when the case reached a higher court. Dayton, after its day in the news, returned to the deep solitude of a Southei:n town, and the principals of the trial went their separate ways also. Scopes became an oil company geologist, retiring in 1964 to write this book; Darrow went on to further legal fame; and Bryan, for whom the Scopes trial was the last in a series of lost causes in which he became involved, was to be dead less than one week after the trial had ended. Taking into cons~deration that Scopes was an oil company geolContinued on page 4, column 3

U. S. "President"

Where Have All the Children Gone?

Sleeps Through Term According to the Constitution, President-elect Zachary Taylor was scheduled to take office on March 4, 1849, but he refused to be inaugurated on that day, stating that it was a Sunday and therefore a day of rest. In vain the politicians around him begged Taylor to change his mind. James K. Polk, the "lameduck" President, was forbidden by the Constitution to stay in office for another day. The Senate had no choice but to elect another President to serve from Sunday noon to Monday noon, the time rescheduled for Taylor's inauguration. David Rice Atchison, leader of the Senate, was chosen by his colleagues to serve the "term." However, foe last week of the Polk administration was so hectic for Senator Atchison that he went to bed Saturday evening, instructing his landlady "not to awaken me for any reason." The faith:(ul lady followed his orders, and David Atchison dozed all through Sunday and on into Monday, past the time his 24hour term ended. Thus the "President" slept through h i s whole term of office, and missed the chance of· a lifetime. ---James C. Hefley.

Do you remember the Red Queen in the fairy tale "Alice in Wond€rland"? She took Alice by the hand at top speed through the Looking-Glass Wonderland, shouting, "Faster! Faster! Don't try to talk. Faster!" Today's children probably don't think she's so funny or imaginary. The R€d Queen has stepped out of her story •book and contributed her haibits to today's parents. Let's tear ourselves a:way from the i€levision, radio, or that sexy magazine for a moment and think about today's children. They are missing out on the most wonderful years of their lives by being forced to put on adult shoes before their feet even begin to fit them. When someone said "childhood,'' people immediately used to see a child swinging, running, playing hop-scotch, or getting into mischief. As soon as a baby gets out of the cdb, he is called a preschooler. Then when he finally gets to school, we pull him by the leg and call him a pre-teen. When, at last, the teen years are reached, the poor child is called a "young adult" and asked why he won't act his age.

It is sobering to think a:bout today's toys with their adult ideas. An exampl€ of this is called a "teen-age doll." This is a skinny (but developed) little manikin that the child can only buy clothes for. She certainly can't hug it or rock it to sleep! School age children are pushed into thinking that if they don't get good grades when they'r€ in the third grade, they'll never make it to college so they can get a high-paying job. Imagine having the world's problems pressing down on your shoulders at age eight or nine and see how it feels. We can tell ourselves that these hurry-hurry habits of the Red Queen don't affect "our" children, but by taking one look at statistics of today's teen-age marriages, divorces, and unwed parents, we can't shrug it off any more. These children are just playing house; and a little while later, the same children, 1es s happy, start playing divorce. Let's let go of the Red Queen's hand and let children be children for their very short years as a child. Put the Red Queen back in the story book where she belongs.

Weird Customs Still Sacred Many of the different customs and superstitions c o n c e r n i n g marriage originated thousands of years ago in other countries. The throwing of rice originated from the Persians, who required that the future husband and wife meet at midnight on a bed in the presence of two sponsors who hold rice in .their hands as an emblem of fruitfulness. In some areas of India, the priest sprinkles rice on th€ bride and groom as an emblem of fruitfulness. The ancient Greeks and Romans poured sw€etmeats or nuts over the bridegroom to keep his soul from flying away on the wedding day. ·

future ·brides were r€quired to jump f11om a 30-foot cliff to choose the man they loved. However if the bride suffered any injury or was killed, she had evidently chosen the w11ong husband. In Sparta, the men carri€d off their brides by violence, for this signified that the marriage was valid. 1t was felt that the woman could not give up her freedom unless she was overcome by the stronger sex. In one tri:be, the future bride was compelled to run from the tent of one friend to another until she was caught and forced into the bridegroom's tent.

Takes Mellow Yellow "Trip"

These days it is very hard to be the parent of a teen-ager. The other day a father walked into his kitchen and caught his son taking a banana out of the fruit

bowl. "What are you doing with that banana?" he shouted. "I'm going to cut it up and put it on my cereal," his son replied. "A likely story," he said. "You weren't going to smoke it, were you?" Lt seems that the teen-agers have been smoking bananas so they would have hallucinations. . This family dedded to try it to see what it was like.

Campus School To Close? The Legislature's Education Committee recommended recently that Peru State's Campus School ibe closed. This recommendation was connected with a proposal designed to force certain school districts which contract with districts in neigl:rboring states to dissolve. The bill was placed in the general file for debate. "We feel the Peru School is being run poorly and inefficiently," said chairman Lester Harsh of Bartley. The Campus.

passed out three pipes. The three of them sat around the floor of the living room and started to puff. In about 10 minutes he asked his son what he saw. "I see Mom getting green." "That's no hallucination," his wife said. "You don't look so .good yourself," his son added. Five minutes later they all retired to their respective washrooms. This was the "trip" that everyone was ·talking about. So these are the kind of trips-., that the teen-agers are smoking bananas to go on.

During wartime emergencies in the past, Peru College has responded to the national crises with democratic spirit. In WW I, Peru opened 'its doors for the Student Army Training Corps. The football field was used by the s·oldiers for their military drills and the building located where the Science Hall now stands was turned into barracks. The soldiers attended classes in English, typing an d special courses, such as radio telegraphy. Uniforms became prevalent on campus again during WW II when the V-12 Program came to Peru. This was a Navy College Training Program designed to produce officers for ·the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. The V-12· Program enabled college men to carry on their college training while on active duty and receiving service pay. A commemorative plaque thanking Peru State (Teacher's) College "for effective cooperation in training naval personnel during World War II" is presentlyhanging in Delzell Hall. In a separate program during WW II, cadets were also given 8-week courses in flight training. (At this time, Peru boasted an airport, and flying classes were on the college curriculum.) These cadets also lived on campus and attended ground school as well as flight training. Besides sharing the campus with soldiers and sailors, Peru

students "rallied to the cause" by organizing war councils, conducting paper drives, and donating :books for use in the U. S. camps and bases. Girls living in the dormitory estaJblished "Purl Harder Clubs" and donated their knitting to the Red Cross. Special issues of the Pedagogian were dedicated to Peru servicemen and sent to all camps and stations in which there were former Peru students. While actively participating in the wartime activities, Peruvians did not forget their responsibility to keep up their classwork so necessary to help win the wars and build stable societies in postwar days. During both World Wars Peru continued to function as a teachers' college and meet all of its requirements.

Scopes on Monkey Trial Continued from page 2 ogist and not an author, this book is surprisingly well done. Like most autobiographies, however, there are several places in which the story is strained by an over-abundance of personal details which are of little interest to the reader.

REAL COOPERATION Mark Twain once asked a neighbor if he could iborrow a set of books which he was very anxious to use. "You're welcome to read them in my library," answered the neighbor, "but it is my rule never to let my books leave my house." Some weeks later the neighbor sent over to ask for the loan of Mark Twain's lawn mower. "Certainly," replied M a r k Twain, "but since I make it a rule never to let the lawn mower leave my lawn, you will be dbliged to use it here."

The 480-yard shuttle hurdles team of Ross Ridenour, Holdrege; Bob Lovejoy, Red Oak, Iowa; Mike Schlemer, East Alton, Ill.; and Dick Estes, Tempe, Arizona, ran third in a time of 1:07.9 for the record. The shuttle hurdles relay event was considered to be the first time the Bobcats had run this event and thus the time goes down as a new school record. The Bobcat two-mile relay quartet finished second an d missed equalling the school record by six-tenths of a second. Roger Neujahr, Gresham; Jim O'Donoghue, Worcester, Mass.; Bob nixon, Des Moines, Iowa; and Jim Watson, Red Cloud,

scooted the two-mile distance in 8:04.8. The Bobcats captured two first places in the Midland meet. Tim Hendricks, Omaha, took first place in the mile grind with a 4:26.4 clocking. The 440-yard relay team of Cal Smith, Pacific Junction, Iowa; Rich Rech, Grand Island; Jim Hagemeier, Beatrice; and Curt Holliman, Rockford, Ill.; picked up a victory with a :43.l clocking. The same foursome placed third in the 880-yard relay. Other Bobcat point winners included: 100-yard dash, Curt Holliman, third; pole vault, Arnold Johnston, Boys Town, fourth; shot put, Mike Mulvaney, Independence, Iowa, third; high jump, George Goepfert, Rockford, Ill., second; discus, M i k e Mulvaney, second; javelin, Bert Faulkner, Paulsboro, N.

Bobcats Split Doubleheader With lchabods Peru State College defeated Washburn University 3-1 Sat., April 15, behind the four-hit pitching of Jim Rains. Washburn, however, came back to win the second game 7-6. The Bobcats' first game victory halted a fiveg.ame losing streak. Peru took a brief lead in the second inning when Gary Young, Adams, singled; Ric:h Guzinski, Loup City, walked; and Jim Waltke, Beatrice, drove in Young

Peru Reschedules ·Two Rainouts Head Bobcat baseball coach Joe Pelisek revealed the rescheduling of two rained-out double headers. The Peru State vs. Wayne State double header, rained out on April 8th, is rescheduled for Sat., May 13 at Peru. Also re-scheduled was a twin bill against St. Benedicts ollege, Sat., April 29, at Atchison, Kansas.

with an infield out. Washburn came right back with a run on two hits and a sacrifice in the bottom of the second. In the fifth inning, Peru State put the game out of reach when Al Sullivan, Worcester, Mass., chased in two runs with a dou•ble. Sullivan's hit came after singles by John Creamer, v!Otcester, Mass., and Steve Pattison, Gering, and a base on balls to Stan Zbylut, Omaha, had loaded the bases. In the night cap Washburn scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh to defeat Peru State 7-6. A Peru error, a base on balls, a sacrifice fly, and a double sent the runs across. The Bobcats scored three times in the first inning, to be driven in by a Denny Hammer, Red Oak, Iowa, double. The Ichabods, however, scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the first. Washburn scored two runs in the third, and Peru then scored three in the fourth inning. In the fifth, Washburn scored their final run until the fatal seventh inning.

Bobcat Thinclads Dash Past Plainsmen Fleet Rich Rech made two gallant effur.ts in leading Peru State to a 92--58 track victory over Nebraska Wesleyan at Lincoln. Rich first captured the 100~ yard dash in 9.7 to tie the Peru State and Wesleyan school records. Then he legged the 220yard dash in 21.6, only one-tenth of a second off the Peru State record. Rich, a graduate of Fullerton High School in Grand Island, Peru's Jim Teggelhutter, Syracuse, lost his second game in four decisions.

Peru's big victory was caused by the double wins of two other Bobcats. Mike "Hercules" Mulvaney again showed his mastery of the shot and discus with 46'10" and 16-0'5". Tim Hendricks, Omaha, was a double victor in the mile and two~mile events with 4:27.3 and 9:47. All told, Peru won 58 points on the track and 34 points in field events. Their next meet will be at Doane College in Crete.

The Philadelphia 76er's came from behind in the sixth game of a ·best 4 ·out of 7-game series with the San Francis<:o Warriors to wrap up the NBA crown by downing the Warriors 125-122. The Warriors had a chance to win the .game in the last fifteen seconds, but a shot by Ricky Barry missed its mark. Randy Matson became the first man in history to throw the shot 71 feet. Matson heaved the iron ball 71 feet, 51/2 inches to break his own world's record set almost· two years ago at 70 feet, 71/4 inches. Matson has thrown the Hi-pound ball better than 60 feet in hiS last 77 meets and has pitched it 70 feet or better six times. In 31 appearances his winning throws have bettered 66 feet. The current tbaseball season is well underway. In the National League, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Cindnnati Reds are fighting it out for first place, while in the American League it is quite a close race between the first six clubs.

Iowa State Students Stage "Love-In" Recently on the campus of Iowa State University at Ames, the students started a "love-in," which is a demonstration for anything peaceful. " Ge n t 1e Thursday," the name given tothe day's events, was a declaration of independence :by the students -a day set aside for escape into fantasy of an idyllic parablefrom the human events of reality which had become Ull'bearable. Students began the occasion of children's games, fantasy, makebelieve, flowers, and nonsensical ramblings by passing out heliumfilled iballoons and paper flowers. Popcorn, candy, :bubble gum , lemon drops, and sugar cU!bes (a symbolism of LSD) werealsodistributed. Students played games such as leap frog, hopscotch, and a pantomime croquet game without mallets, balls, or wickets. They held thirty seconds of silence in memory of "all flowers hurt :by :bad weather, of leaves fallen from trees, and robins and goldfish poisoned iby DDT." Other activities included the sailing of a, four-foot-long yellow submarine which sank, stacking up of large piles of children's blocks to lbe knocked down and stacked up again, and the :burning of a textbook over a portable charcoal burner.

Because of his relative youth and his prodigious success, Grass has been subjected to more criticism than would have been the case with someone of a more vulneraJble age. The criticism, however, has altogether failed to diminish his popularity, which has spread far beyond the confines of Germany. Tin Drum, the author's first novel, has ib e en translated into at least a dozen languages. Tin Drum, according to Grass, was originally intended to be a long narrative poem as told from the point of view of someone perehed on the top of a monument. This vantage point proved foo static, however, so the author combined i:t with the viewpoint of a person sitting under a table. '};his combination accounts for the curious double perspective from which the lead character, Oskar, views the world: absolutely detached, yet intimate, selfexamining, and as an active participant.

Teachers Define Objectives Of Project English At Workshop By Louise Lundstedi


in 1e


Mildred R. Bennett, who will speak on Willa Cather at Peru State April 20, was born and educated in the middle West, an important factor in her interpretation of Willa Cather's writings. She was born in Elk Point, South Dakota, and has lived in Iowa and Kansas. The Union College at Lincoln, Nebraska granted her a BA degree. She also received a MA in psychology from the University of Nebraska, after which she taught ten years. Mrs. Bennett ·began her teaching career in Inavale, Nebraska in 1932. She became interested in Miss Cather when she discovered that many of her pupils were children of Miss Cather's friends. After her husband, Dr. W. K. Bennett, returned from the service and began to practice medicine, they moved to Red Cloud, Nebraska, Miss Cather's hometown. Mrs. Bennett has lived there since that time and has close contact with the p e op 1e who knew Miss Cather. She has one son, and devotes her life to her family while doing some writing of her own. Mrs. Bennett has always been interested in writing. She has written poetry, short stories, and several articles for local magazines, such as the Prairie Schooner and the American Names Journal. In 1960, the Cather article in the Prairie Schooner won a $50 prize in the Pen Women biennial contest. She has also written articles for the Collier's Encyclopedia. Some of her research on Willa Cather is indicated in The World of Willa Cather (19·51); Early Stories of Willa Cather (1957); Notes and Analysis of "My An· tonia" (1962); and Notes and Analysis of "Paradise Lost" (1963).

English teachers of levels K-12 from several schools in southeast Nebraska gathered at the Peru State College Campus School for a Projeot English Workshop, Sat., April 8. Mrs. Genevieve Gergen of Peru was the lead teacher. The purpose of the workshop was to acquaint the teachers with the new Project English which is being developed and is now being used in many Nebraska schools. Several attempts were made to define what Project English is, to determine how it is different from the traditional methods of teaching, and how the students of all levels can benefit from it. The Peru Campus S ch o o 1 fourth and fifth grades gave a literature demonstration of The Wind in the Willows by Richard Grahame. Through inductive questioning, conversation, and their own original dramatizations they gave their interpretations of the book. By using words describing characters from the book they made sentences demonstrating their understanding of the use of the different parts of speech. They discussed how they were like the characters of the story, showing how they could apply the literature to tl;i~m­ selves. Through this demonstration the teachers learned h ow Project English integrates language, literature, and composition. Mrs. Gergen showed the group a visual aid she had made that illustrated the spiral of English development through the integration of language, literature, and composition. The different levels of study of K-12 were illustrated. She told the group that the top ring of the spiral is empty because it is hoped that Project English may be extended into the freshman year of college. By using · the inductive approach, Mrs. Gergen and the group formulated a set of objectives for Project English. They

then checked theirs with a set made by the formulators of this curriculum. They then discussed the steps toward planning and executing a Project English curriculum. The afternoon session was devoted to a lecture and discussion on language, linguistics, and form classes. Mrs. Gergen opened the discussion by saying, "The most controversial part of Project English is the language. Many people think we are not teaching any grammar." The group discussed an essay, "An Analysis of the Present Problem in the Teaching of Language," written by Dudley Bailey, Head of the English Department at the University of Nebraska. He told about the difficulties in teaching language and how ours is a changing language with which the teaching methods must keep pace. The teachers participated in a

demonstration of the form classes by picking out the parts of speech from a nonsense sentence. They discussed whether or not it is important to spend time teaching students the parts of speech and how and when linguistics should be taught. They discussed the basic findings of linguistic science. The second session of the Project English Workshop met Sat., April 15, 9:00 to 3:00. The fifth and sixth graders of Peru were to gi'{e original dramas of their favorite events in the Hobbit. Topics of discussion were syntax, dictionary study and history of the language, dialect study, usage and spelling, an d composition. Such questions as: Is writing a gift, or can it be learned?; is writing nearly obsolete?; and is oral composition more important than written composition? were to be discussed by the group.

The script of the all-time great Broadway production w:as written by Sam and Bella Spewack and the music by Cole Porter. It was sponsored by the Peru Chapter of the Music Educators National Conference.

Future In Art' Says Dr. Helm By Shirley Prati

Dr. John F. Helm was guest speaker at a Centennial Convocation Wed., April 5, in the Fine Arts Recital Hall at 7:30 p.m. He gave a lecture on Midwestern Art. Dr. Helm said, "I feel very much honored to be invited to Peru; however, I won't be a true Peruvian because of the lack of the proper pronunciation of Peru!" He recognized the fact that many distinguished people have graduated from Peru State. Dr. Helm began his lecture on Midwestern Art by saying, "I have had a lot of fun and pleasure in art and its development in this part of the country." Midwestern art reflects influences from European and other outside sources; however, certain characteristics have been found that are American. He feels that the development of Midwestern art has been affected very little by the area and climatic conditions. The earliest arts were the Indian arts that had no sophistication. Next were the arts by a richer plain Indian. This art had many good design qualities, but these were soon erased when the white man arrived. Dr. Helm showed slides on the works of many Midwestern artists and expressed his opinion on the art. His slides included works from several surrounding museums and gallerys. Nebraska, according to Dr. Helm, is a very dead art center. It lacks a great number of museums, theaters, art dealers, and the density of a wealthy population. He stated, "I wonder if the man on the street in New York, Washington, or Chicago is any more conscious or understanding of art than the man in Omaha, Lincoln, or Peru. I doubt it." Continuing, he said, "I feel the people out here are much more interested and much more willing to find out something about the art. I think there is a real future for the art in the Midwestern Institutions such as Peru State College, and they will continue to make it significant." Dr. Helm concluded by saying, "Best wishes for c o n t i n u e d growth during the second century. My hearty congratulations to the past contributions, and I know they have been very great!" Dr. Helm is Professor of Drawing and Painting in the College of Architecture and Design at Kansas State University at Manhattan, Kansas. He has been associated here since 1924, and is presently director of the Graduate Program for the College of. Architecture and Design.

Editorially Speaking ....

By Ruth Rathbun

Nebraska Education .. Help! Two recent developments in the state of Nebraska, both in the field of education, should perhaps be of great interest to those attending Peru State College and planning someday to enter the teaching profession. Earlier this moi;t~ in Hall County, and earlier this year in Lincoln, a maJonty of voters supported the establishment of new junior colleges in their respective communities. In neither community, however, will a junior college be built. The reason for this seeming discrepancy is that the law requires the approval of 55% of the voters in an area before the legal authority to proceed with such a school may be gained. In Hall County the issue was approved by about 54% of the voters-in Lincoln by a little more than 52%. The legislature, practically every educator in the state, and a great many other Nebraskans are beginning to realize that junior colleges can be a very useful tool indeed with which to further the goals of local, state, and national objectives. Junior colleges make higher education more widely available through their relatively low cost and easy access to local communities, and they also make education more efficient because they help to alleviate the excessively large college or university. Nebraskans, through the use of their votes, are able to create districts for area vocational schools with a simple majority vote; they also have the power to establish a great variety of other districts, some with the power to tax, again with a simple majority vote. Yet in order to create an institution of higher learning, which would probably return its initial cost in the long run, the proposal must receive the approval of 55% of the voters in the community. The State Legislature has already this year shown an increased interest in the sad condition of education in Nebraska. First of all, there is a proposal to merge the Universities of Nebraska and Omaha; and secondly, strong support has been given to the idea that state funds be extended to the five existing junior colleges and to three others, if their communities want to establish them. Additionally, perhaps, the legislature should see fit to examine the possibilities of removing this wrinkle in the law which requires a 55% approval of the voters in order to establish a junior college. As it now stands, this existing statute only hinders the extension and improvement of the educational system in Nebraska, a system which is considered one of the very worst in the country. -Jack Gaines

Why Not Extended Library HourS? Going to spend the weekend studying at the library? You have only one choice, which is to get up at crack of dawn and get down to the library Saturday morning. Show me a student here that can get up early Saturday morning, and I'll show you a student that didn't go out Friday night so he could get up early and study Saturday morning. I think the library should have longer hours on Saturdays and should open earlier on Sunday. Weekends are the best times to study if a student chooses to. There really isn't very much to do during the afternoons on weekends except study. The dorm on Saturday is hardly conducive to study. During week days the hours are exceptionally good because the library is open all day long. Don't you think the library should be open longer on weekends? So do I! -Ruth Rathbun PERU PEDAGOGIAN

A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small package.

The seniors at Midland College are trying to decide on a gift from their class to the school. Gift possibilities include a copy macliine, a speech laboratory and a college marker. A new dormitory will honor the late Ralph G. Brooks, who, as well as being a governor of Nebraska, was the former President of McCook College. Mr. Brooks was a man who started at the ·bottom of the career ladder and worked his way up. He came to McCook College at a time when the school system was in trouble. Teachers had ib e en fired, others had quit; meanwhile there was a student strike. McCookites honored their past president commemorating his name on the Ralph G. Brooks Residence Hall. Noted semanticist, Dr. S. I. Hayahawa, was a guest on the Kearney Campus April 6 when he spoke at a convocation in the Administration Auditorium a t 10:30 a.m. Dr. Hayahawa is an excellent authority on semantics, or the study of signs and what they signify and denote. Senator Gale McGee will deliver the principal address at the Wayne State spring commencement exercises on April 19. This senator from Wyoming is a 1963 graduate of Wayne State College. His address will concern Viet Nam. A potentially dangerous fire in Gilchrist, Iowa, was avoided recently when several members of the paper staff and an Iowa State campus policeman discovered a short in an electrical transformer. Paper staff members smelled smoke and w e r e sniffing around their offices when Officer Heinselman came to the rescue. Heinselman stated that if the short had not been discovered the whole complex could have ·been destroyed on the State College of Iowa campus. ·

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Students Upset By Water Situation, Telephone Monopolies, and SGA Elections . Dear Editor: Peru, the school of countless problems, has again b e en plagued ·by catastrophe. We poor students of this institution, who have ·been constantly beset by adverse nutritional, weather and social conditions, were a g a in blessed with further anxiety. Our always poor-tasting water was supplemented with a heavy carbon-chained additive. This kerosene-like taste did not really help the attitude of the normally discontented populace. The town of Peru had the most to lose from the adverse water conditions. Inhabitants of Peru, outside of college campus affiliates, are rare; and I would hate to see us lose some of these people simply because bad water was the last straw in an already unbearable situation. Students that got sick fro m this "water?''. episode s ho u 1 d have contacted their lawyers concerning the liability of t h e town of Peru for such discomforts. It was rumored that some of the students were actually able to burn the water at first but they had to stop in compliance with the State Fire Marshal's orders. Cigarette smoking after showers was discouraged whenever possible (except for certain Buddhist affiliates). The only result of this "Great Kerosene Blunder" that was constructive is the fact that the pipes of our system received a much-needed cleaning. (Lighter fluids sales dropped, of course).

I .would personally like to thank the Broughton Food Service for coming to the students' aid as they have done so many times before! These fine people did not raise the price of a cup of ice (which was the only way our kerosene was consumable) . during our time of need. The price of one cup of ice remain a modest five cents. This is r markable because the school fur nishes water, gas and electric' free of charge. I contend that Broughton Food Service has nOc right to charge for ice, for if doesn't belong to them. Ice :is only frozen water at the best but the water is paid for out of our pockets. Also interesting is the fact that a cup of ice can be produced for one-thousandth of the: five-cent figure (not counting cup) but so ,goes inflaiion. If plastic coated paper cups are 5e per, I beg the pardon of the · Broughton Food Service (but don't count on it). I am also interested in the nonstudent employees of our Bob Inn. The .more "superior than thou" attitude displayed by a few of these people (who live off our purse strings) is appalling. Considering that they are working for the public, I would much expect some civility in their attitudes. Of course the majority of these people are nice but the attitude of a few can undermine the general impression. New words have been added to our local vocabulary, thanks Continued on page 4, column 1

Banana High Is Newest Craze Get rid of your LSD, marijuana, psilocybin, nutmeg, and morning glory seeds, bananas are here to "get high on" now! The recent idea that banana skins send users on trips has caused a banana-burying boom from the Haight-Asbury district to Harvard Square. The banana craze was ushered in by British pop singer Donavan. In the popular song "Mellow Yellow," Donavan sang, "Electrical banana is gonna be a sudden craze, Electrical banana is bound to be the very next phase." The banana trip was started at Berkeley in early March of this year. The banana recipe is simple to carry out. You simply scrape the white fiber from inside a banana peel and dry it in a slow (200 degree) oven, "then crumble and roll into a banana joint," the Berkeley Barb states, "or 1better, smoke in a pipe." This recipe was widely circulated· almost immediately to :hundreds of "hippies" who were ready for a "trip." Thoughts vary on the effects of mellow yellow. Some hippies say it produces a "gentle high," whereas a Boston user said,

Soliloquy Among The Shoeboxes:

"Your limbs .feel light." But others seem to think that the banana high craze is ;being exaggerated. For example, someone said the whole thing is propaganda from the United Fruit Company. A company spokesman, however, protested its innocence 1a st week: "The only trip you c a n take with a banana is when you slip on the peel," he said. Biochemists and doctors agree that the mellow yellow craze is perhaps a little out of proportion. Banana skins contain serotonin, also found in LSD, bu t there ·are no signs that banana highs produce visual distortions. Banana smoking may be nothing more than a rebuttal toward police authority. No state laws could outlaw mellow yellow. As the Village Voice points out: "What legislator would dare affix his name to the Banana Control Act of 1968?"

'Tribal Man Has Returned' Via Marshall McLuhan ~c; Theories

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Continued from page 2 to the ,water situation. A coke was known as a "Diesel Delight." The average student was known as Napalm (not counting the twenty proof blood). Gasoline was watered down and amazingly inexpensive. Smoking after showers was called neoBuddism. Chugging water became the newest off-campus craze. Rain was known as t h e "local aurora." The tradition which has come through unscathed is our wonderful "Hog" Inn. J1ames Michael Harris, Senior, Peru State College.

Dear Editor: I'm filing a complaint-a complaint against all girls that feel it is their privilege to monopolize the only phone line going in or out of Morgan Hall until all hours of the night, and against the boys that show their lack of respect for girls and their complete ignorance by telling those that ask for the line to, quote, "Go to --." or, quote, "Go-." I sometimes wonder if these are college level students. This is utterly disgusting and I hope that they will someday grow up to learn respect for the feelings of others. But for now, we who are waiting for very important long distance calls or are waiting to make them, must go on being patient with those who insist on talking to the "lovers" they've been with all day long. After all, they are talking about such important matters as how hard it is to get a washer to w a s h clothes, how much studying they have to do, how hungry they are, how tired they are, and their plans for taking a bath before retiring for the night. To add to the difficulty of making or receiving a call, there are those who have formed a group conspiracy to monopolize the phone. The phone ' is handed from boy to boy at the other end of the line and from girl to girl at Morgan Hall's end. This c an sometimes go on for hours. The receiver never hits the carriage As a matter of interest, I would like to add that I have noticed many girls lowering themselves to the point of calling the boys. The boy is no longer the aggressor; it's the girls who have taken over this role. Boys, do you feel like you're being chased? In conclusion, I would like to make a suggestion, that being: Any one who is caught constantly abusing the five-minute phone rule of Morgan Hall be deprived of the rights to receive or to make any local phone calls for a period of two weeks. Maybe they would come to realize just how nice phone privileges can be. If this rule would have been in effect, maybe I could have received a very important long


distance phone call at 10:30 when it was expected, rather than 1:30 p.m. whenit came. If I seem bitter, it's only because I am! Bernadine Fintel, Sophomore, Peru State College.

Dear Editor: The recent elections held to choose SGA representatives for the 1967-68 school year have been the center of considerable dispute. The elections were held on a well-chosen day that should have provided a heavy voter turnout. The fact that the elections were not publicized or even announced seems almost premeditated. We have on this campus several bulletin boards, a regularly published newspaper, and public address systems in each of the residence halls, and I don't feel that it's unreasonable for the student body to expect the SGA to use these media to announce elections. It wasn't done for the SGA Presidential election, but at least the polls remained open at both lunch and dinner. In this latest election, however, a new low was reached. The polls were open only at lunch and then not for the entire lunch period. Personally I came to lunch at 12:15 p.m. and was unable to vote. This was unfortunately true for a considerable number of students. To top the insult, the polls did not even open for the dinner hour. This completely eliminated those people who didn't happen to appear in the student center sometime between 11:00 a.m. and noon. To say that this is an understatement. It borders on being ridiculous. If the SGA is ever to be successful it must learn that without previous planning and organized communication little interest can be expected. Why can't the SGA learn to practice what its m e m b e r s preach? If nothing else, I hope that this unfortunate example of an SGA election can be improved upon in future years. May I respectfully suggest that in future elections the candidates for SGA representatives be announced in the campus newspaper and that the date of ,the election be announced in advance. May I also suggest that the polls be open during the entire lunch and din-

What is wrong? As I was strolling around our campus of 1000 oaks during the Open House activities, I just happened to run into a Hollywood director friend of mine and one of his outstanding stars, Sidney Porter. In the course of the conversation which ensued my friend mentioned that when he got back to Hollywood he planned to . initiate action that wo:Qld 'bring .the motion picture industry to our campus to shoot a movie. They had several ideas about titles but the one that they were most impressed with was "Dandelions of the Lawn." They couldn't see how they could miss if the picture was set in front of our lovely student center, and, frankly, I tend to agree with them. What is wrong on this campus? In many places the campus is very picturesque, but the illusion is ruined when a glance is taken at the lawn in front of the most used building on campus. I have heard through the grapevine that the area in question was sodded with bluegrass several years ago, and that the bluegrass was left to dry up and die so that we · could have room for a lovely flower garden with a predominance of yellow flowers. Is this how state money is spent? I have no idea where the fault really lies, but I don't think it is with the students. I hope something can be done soon so I can be proud of our appearance next year. Respectfully, Charles Williams

visit several colleges and to observe the differences between the large college and the small. The major difference between these two types of institutions is the amount of individual attention given students by the faculty and the administration. Here at Peru State a student receives individual attention and help if desired. Colleges larger than Peru State often recognize a particular student as only a number to be given a grade at the end of the semester. Peru State professors take an interest in each and every student, giving him guidance whenever required. In addition, if a student is in financial need, the administration is always willing to help in any way possible. A student must remember that without the small cdHege atmosphere such as Peru State, there would be no one to listen and/ or care about him. Many exponents of large colleges offer the theory that they are more equipped to offer a better education to their students. I will never be convinced that the small college will ever have to take a backseat academically to a big


The only thing that a small college might lose out on would be the chance for its students to become "Freddy Frat Rats" or "Sally Sororities." To me, this is not the objective of higher education. All in all, the small college is able to produce graduates, as records will show, who are more than capable of becoming successful. -Charlotte Nedrow

Book.Review• When Martin Luther King, Jr., the man who is the symbol around the world for moderation in the struggle for Negro equality, writes a book entitled Why We Can't Wait, ·thousands upon, thousands of people, whether sympathetic or not, will recognize it as a book of some little interest. Why We Can't Wait is a cogent and compelling attempt to justify the impatience of those in the Civil Rights controversy. Dr. King presents in . this book the logic behind the Negro's dissatisfaction with the well-meaning but often times unimplemented "due process," step-at-atime plans for achieving a condition promised to him one hundred years ago in the Emancipation Proclamation. Why We Can't Wait offers a uniquely convincing over-all view of the wisdom and effectiveness of the Negro's latesf weapon, the non-violent protest. Also, the book makes a sincere rebuttal to the liberal and clerical critics of the demons·tration strategy, and to those who purport· to see division and dissension among the ranks of the freedom warriors. The book gives a complete account of the whole strategy involved in the .great Birmingham campaign of 1963, a narration 'l'l'.hich is both suspenseful, and at times, moving. Dr. King reviews the habitually negligent progress since

Since many students on campus have shown a proficiency in the "art of cheating,'' I feel it is only fair that the rest of the student body have an equal chance to excel in this area. I recommend adding a new course to the curriculum (Principles of Cheating (000) to aid all the students in developing their particular cheating talents. A Cheating Proficiency Test should be required of all incoming freshmen to see that their cheating aptitudes meet a certain. standard. If they cannot pass this test, they should be required to take Principles of Cheating before continuing their college career. The first nine weeks of the course would be devoted to-"how to assemble crib sheets and where to hide them" and the second nine weeks would be spent concentrating on the more delicate operations of-"group cooperation in obscuring the teacher's view,'' "techniques for opening your book on the sly,'' and "eye exercises to help you read a paper two chairs away." Upon completing this course, students should be better equipped to compete with their fellow students in the classroom ! ! ! -Chloe Miller the plate.

'Centennial Panorama' Is May Fete Theme

-Photo by Special Services Queen Pat Knippelmier and King Mike GuilliaU, both seniors, reign over the May Fete Dance.

Pat Knippelmier, Mike Guilliat Head Royal May Fete Court A king and queen, an attendant representing each class, and six ladies-in-waiting s e 1 e ct e d from among the freshman class made up the royalty for this year's Centennial May Fete celebration. The eventual winners were chosen by members of their respective cl:asses in a campuswide election held early in May. This year's May Fete was planned and sponsored by t h e Student Center Board, which was assisted by the me~bers of the Circle "K."

KING MIKE GULLIATT Mike Guilliatt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dale Guilliatt of Auburn, was elected by the student bo~ as King of the 1S67 Centennial May Fete. Mike is currently student teaching in the fields of history and social science in Glenwood, Iowa. He has been president of his freshman class and a Sweetheart Dance attendant his senior year. He is also路 a member of Blue Devils, Peru Historical Society, and Beta Beta Beta. Mike exclaimed, "I was surprised and honored to have been chosen."

You can be sure Mr. and Mrs. Dale Guilliatt of Auburn were in the Centennial May Fete audience, for their three children were in the May Fete Royalty. Their oldest. son, Mike, reigned with Pat Knippelmier, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Knippelmier of Johnson, as King and Queen of the Centennial May Fete. Larry Franke of Falls City served as King during the coronation because Mike was unable to attend. The senior class attendants were Ceci Evangelist, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Evangelist of Newark, New York, and Tim Gilligan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Gilligan of Gretna, Nebraska. Julie Harrison, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Harrison, Jr., of Wood River, Illinois, and Ralph DiCesare, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph DiCesare, Sr., of Worcester, Massachusetts, reigned as junior class attendants. Nancy and Jim Guilliatt, twin daughter and son of Mr. and Mrs. Dale Guilliatt of Auburn, reigned as sophomore class attendants. The freshman class attendants were Linda Knippelmier, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Knippelmier of Johnson, and Larry Colgrove, son of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Colgrove of路 Wymore. The six ladies-in-waiting, all chosen from rthe freshman class, were Marliss Cramer of Falls City, Candice Gray of Nebraska City, Nancy Krakowski of Ralston, Kathy Reed of Hamburg, Iowa, Lynda Shanahan of Morse Bluff, and Pat Smart of Omaha. The flower girls were Jerri Patterson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Patterson of Peru and JQhnnie Douglas, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Douglas of Peru. The crown 'bearers w er e Carol Brady, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Brady and Todd Gavin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Gavin, both of Peru. All four are members of the Campus School kindergarten. This year's May Fete was named "Centennial Panorama" to celebrate this milestone year

in Peru State's history. In this panorama were portrayed highlights of the history of the Campus of a Thousand Oaks in song and d:ance. The opening numbers, played by Dean Taylor of Auburn accompanied by Marshall Merritt of Peru, took us back to the days when the stringed instruments were the major musical pieces in this land, which was once called the Great American Desert. This once barren land has changed in the one hundred years Qf Peru State's existence. Barrenness has changed to scenes of beauty in the 100-year-old Arbor State, and people have arrived to oil the wheels of progress. This state's beauty is best exemplified in the youth, and it is the you th of this historic college who were honored in the Centennial Panorama. Carolyn Price of Pawnee City opened the entertainment with a western saloon song and dance, "Let Me Entertain You,'' popular in the roaring frontier days. Folk dancing has always been popular in Nebraska, stimulated by the varied national groups which have populated the midwest in the early days of settlement. The college folk dance class performed "Varsouviana" (Put Your Little Foot), a dignified western folk dance popular in the pioneer era. The education of children has always been Peru State's m o s t important business. Since the 1890's elementary age children have trudged up this hill to model school classes. The campus school second and third graders sang and danced a clever old fa. vorite of the younger set: "Of Course, I'm a Horse." The swinging blues are popular with people of all ages, and Joyce Blackburn of Shenandoah, Iowa, honored the May Fete with "Bill Bailey." Pat Quigley of FailJbury delighted everyone with her tap dancing to a medley of entertaining numbers closely related to the college. Her "Missouri Mud" was a take-off on the popular

"Mississippi Mud." This number emphasized the close re1ationship of Peru State College to her back door neighbor, the "Mighty Mo." Melody and Dennis Wininger, children of Dr. and Mrs. Darrell Wininger, performed a song and dance, "I Want to be a Football Hero." Melody was dressed as a cheerleader and her brother as a football player-good ol' number 11. The modern dance Bobkittens entertained with a modern dance number, "Far Above Peru's Water." Agile Arlene Moss performed an acrobatic dance, "Caravan." The first commencement was re-enacted. Don Dodge played the part of President McKenzie. The two graduates, Anna Morehead (Joan Bretthorst) and George Howard (Dave Kramer), were presented their diplomas iby Col. T. J. Majors (Bob Beran). Bill Austin recited a short monologue, "Spirit of the Place." The Campus School seventh and eighth graders dressed as Injuns performed the traditional Maypole Dance and wound the red and w'hite Maypole streamers. The Centennial Panorama was concluded with everyone, audience and performers, singing the color song of the 100-year-old Campus of a Thousand Oaks.

A LAUGH FOR THE DAYStopped at a "Yield Right of Way" sign, a cautious woman driver had missed one chance after another to ease into the merging traffic. Finally, a man leaned out of the car behind hers and called, "Lady, the sign says 'Yield,' not 'Give up.' " The heirs were shocked as the attorney read the will of the deceased . . . Being of sound mind and ibody, I spent it all. Husband, looking over bills, to wife: "Well, we're at the bridge we were going to cross when we came to it.

Pat has signed a contract to teach elementary education in the Des Moines, Iowa, Public School System next fall. "I was very pleased and honored to have been chosen to participate in the May Fete festivities," the pert coed is quoted as

Ceci is a senior majoring in elementary education and is currently student teaching in Bellevue. She has signed a contract to teach second grade in Sodus, N. Y., next fall.

TIM GILLIGAN Chosen in a campus-wide election as the senior attendant for the 19'67 Centennial May Fete celebration was Tim Gilligan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Gilligan of Gretna, Nebraska.

Also, when time permits, Sarge declares he enjoys pursuing his hobby of following all sports. Immediate plans for the future, however, include a tour of duty with the United States Army. Commenting upon May Fete in general, Gilligan suggested that because this event is advertised as ra week-end activity, that it either be spread out between two evenings or expanded to include more activities over the entire week-end.

JULIE HARRISON Julie Harrison, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Harrison Jr., of Wood River, Ill., was honored by being chosen May Fete attendant. She is a junior, majoring in physical education and minoring in biology. J,ulie is a member of Beta Beta Beta and Kappa Delta Pi, serving as historian.

-Phoio by Special Services Ginnie Mullen of Peru State has been elec!:ed president of !:he Home Economics Association.

Ginny Mullen Wins State Office Virginia "Ginnie" Mullen of North Attleboro, Mass., w1as elect" ed president of the Nebraska Home Economics Association for College Chapters at a recent statewide convention held at the Sheraton-Fontenelle Hot e 1 in Omaha. She was installed by Miss Georgia Stevens from the University of Nebraska, past president. Ginnie was nominated president-elect last April at the convention in Scottsbluff and has served in a learning and advisory capacity this past year. The purpose of the Nebraska Association is to work along with the American Home Economics Association and to keep up with new -trends and methods in the field of home economics. Ginnie's duties as president include .presiding over all the home economics chapters in colleges throughout the state. She must also begin to prepare for the national convention to ibe held in Dallas, Texas, June 29. The Peru chapter will now be in cha:vge of a display at the State Fair, and will be selecting representatives for the Dallas convention. They will also be planning workshops for the 196768 school year.

Ginnie is quoted as saying, "I am very happy to have received this ihonor, especially since this is the first time in many years a state home economics president has 1been elected from Peru." The presidency "will bring many students from other colleges i'n the state to the campus for workshops. It will ibe a great opportunity to show them the fine people of Peru and how :proud we are of our campus."

College at Tarkio. Peru State scored 109 points, Concordia 58" and Tarkio 9. The Bobcats from Peru took nine of ten running events and four of the seven field events. Mike Mulvaney, Independence, Iowa, again found the Tarkio discus ring to his liking. For the second time this year he established a new Peru State school record in that event at Tarkio. Mulvaney tossed the platter 1'62'1(4" to break his own record of 160'6%" set March 15 in a dual meet at Tarkio. Mulvaney, Tim Hendricks, Rich Rech and Ross Ridenour led the

Bobcat thinclads with double victories. Mulvaney, in addition to his winning discus mark, tossed the shot put 48'6" for a victory. Hendricks, never pushed, won the mile and the two-mile. Rich Rech gunned the 100-yard dash in :09.8 and the 220-yard dash in 22.2. Ross Ridenour won the 12(}-yard intermediate hurdles in 16.0 and the 330-yard intermediate hurdles in 4£.1. Other Bobcat first places were garnered ;by Cal 1Smith in the 440, Bob Dixon in the 880, Bert Faulkner in the javelin, Dick Estes tied for first in the high jump, and Gerald Wilson in the pole vault. The mile re.lay foursome of Jim Hagemier, Cal Smith, Roger Neujahr, and 'Jim O'Donoghue won the event with a time of 3:26.3. 1

Bobcats Split Twin Bill With St. Benedict's Peru State College split another doubleheader, this time with St. Benedict's College a:t Atchison, Kans., on Sat., April 29. Freshman Dick Jensen, Nebr. City, displayed poise and stamina as he pitched Peru State to a 7-1 victory in the opener. Jensen allowed just five hits, struck out two, and walked none. Jensen's shutout ibid was missed in the fifth when St. Benedict's bunched two singles and an error to score their run. In the second game it was the same old story for the Bobcatserrors in crucial situations. Doug Winfield, Granite City, Ill., was pitching one-hit ball when the roof fell in in the fifth inning and St. Benedict's scored four runs. Peru State had little trouble

Coach McIntire's thinclads also captured nine individual firsts in the victory over the Indians.

Jim Tegelhutter, winning his fourth game of the year against two defeats, aided his own cause in the first game by cracking a two-run double in the fourth inning . Chadron pitcher Dennis Wentz helped the Bobcats by walking in two runs as Peru scored all their runs in that fourth inning. Tegelhutter, while throwing a six-hitter, struck out nine and walked only four. He was in trouble only in the first inning when

Chadron scored their lone run. '11he silent Chadron ibats came to life in the second game as they hammered Peru pitching for seven hits, all for extra bases, including four home runs. Their big 'blow was struck by the second Chadron pitcher, Gary Larson, who crashed a three-run homer in the sixth which turned out to be the winning blow. Peru State pushed across three runs in the fifth inning to tie the game at 6-all and set the stage for Larson's homer. John Creamer V1ainly tried to get Peru back into the game as he poled a solo home run in the top of the sixth to give the Bobcats a momentary one-run lead,

IH~~.~~~er I The sports world suffered a great loss when Oklahoma football {:Oach Jim Mackenzie died of an apparent heart attack at his home in Norman, Oklahoma; Mackenzie, only 37 years old, piloted Oklahoma to a 6-4 record in 1966, pulling the Sooners from the depths of a 3-7 record in 1965. His Sooners won their first four games and were ranked lath in the nation before losing to No. r.: ranked Notre Dame. Oklahoma's victories included an upset win o v e r unbeaten Nebraska on Thanksgiving Day and a win over Texas University-the first Sooner victory over the Longhorns since 1958. Charlie Green, the world's fastest human, anchored the Husker 440 quartet to a record tieing 40.5 clocking in winning the event only 30 minutes after he had nipped Texas Southern's Jim Hines and East Texas State's John Carlos in a special 100-meter dash at the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa. Kearney State standouts p1aced fourth in a pair of open events. Dennis Dukesherer soared 15-6 in the pole vault and Warren Christensen ran a career best 4:09.3 mile for the Antelopes. Kansas track coach Bob Timmons indicated that Jim Ryun, world mile record holder, will attempt a rare mile-880 double victory 40 minutes apart in the NCAA championships at Brigham Young June 17. Buzzie Bavasi, general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, in an article in Sports Illustrated, is quoted as saying that never again would he deal collectively with baseball players as he did }ast year with pitchers Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale. "I don':t care if the whole infield comes in as a package,'' he said. "The next year the whole infield will be wondering what it is doing playing for the Nankai Hawks."
