soap, shampoo, and other items that a student might need during the school year. The SGA was also responsible for the handling of freshmen dues and the sale of beanies to the freshmen. Because of a newly created program called "September Observance," seniors, whousually register the first day that classes had not been closed to them, and any class which they might need to fill out their academic needs was available. The administration did a fine job of handling this situation. If at the next registration, the ·same procedure is used, and any flaws which might have existed are corrected, an even smoother procedure will we!· come everyone involved.

Welcome from Your President

EditOridl/y Spedl<ing.. Freshmen Withstand At long last, freshmen can walk the Peru CamP!ls with peace of mind, carefree and beanie-free, having survived their first and last "Freshmen Initiation Week." What seemed to be a week of wasted time, embarrassment, and at times, down-right humiliation, will be enjoyed immensely, no doubt, for the next three years, by these same tortured and persecuted' individuals, In the future it will be they who will assume the task of administering the necessary "breaking-in" of each new frosh class. However, taking a closer look at Freshmen Initiation Week, is it being carried out as it should? Are the upperclassmen too severe in their dealings? Are they too lax? Should the initiatll:>n period be lengthened? How about having it shortened? Should it be done away with entirely? To say that the previous week was an unnecessdry evil and should be brandished from Peru State would be a definate falsehood, Some type of indoctrination for newcomers is employed almost everywhere, and is not restricted to collegiate concerns. A "rookie" designation is applied to first-year men in all professional sPorts, for example, These individuals are frequently the butt of practical clubhouse jokes and pranks, Other groups also have special programs mapped out in detail for their new members, Social fraternities and sororities usually have a plan for pledges to follow for an entire semester, the climax being a week of constant work throughout each night, with no sleep at all, barring the possible exception of cat-naps in class, Compared to this harsh treatment, Peru's Initiation week is a breeze. Yet is the Peruvian program too severe? Ask most freshmen this question right now and the answer will probably be an emphatic "Yes!" In actuality, however, one can take stock in the fact that there were no deaths, broken bones, or other major injuries incurred during the previous week, with the Possible exception of a few broken eardrums due to the heinous singing. Yes, the Color Song did take quite a butchering. Actually some freshmen seemed to enjoy the whole bit to some extent, as evidenced by the fact that they ci:mstantly "walked right in" to the most menacing vicinity; the front steps leading to the cafeteria;. It was there that practically all of the merriment took place, Any· freshman really wanting to avoid the situation stood a far better chance of escape by using the bookstore entrance. I I

The only major change that might help Peru's Freshmen Initiation Week would· be the elimination of the traditional. beanie, It is just a little too "cute" for college students to wear, especially during the first. week, when everybody is noticing everybody else with such close scrutiny, Perhaps a blue and white armband would be· a suitable substitution. Not only would .it be easier to wear and less to worry about, but it would also add a little challange to proceedings for the upperclassmen, They would have to look harder for their victims 1 and they couldn't holler at someone halfWay across the campus.

M any rate, the dreaded week has come and gone, although it will inevitably come alive again in dormitory conver, sations and coffee breaks for some time to come, And oh!! .... just wait 'till next fall!!!!!! BOB AMMON

"Reflection of Mood" That much predicted loog hot summer is now past. It was preceded by several singular moments of anguish: the shooting of Martin Luther King, rioting in our nation's c~pital, and the assasination of Robert Kennedy. It was climaxed by calamity: the Democratic Convention in Chicago. Vietnam was the issue precipitating trouble this time, Th<i leadership of these two men lent distinction and respectability to the act of dissent, The intellectual community, Democratic liberals, young idealists, and Senators like J, William Fulbright were being joined· by increasing numbers in qµestioning our nation's foreign policy. In strange and extreme cootrast stood the powerful machine boss, the "pro:iuct of the politics of another time," Richard J, Daley, He was aligned with the position of the administration and the officers of the convention. A clash was inevitable. Television played a part in the interpretation of the roles and happenings, D:iley was cast as the villain, hippies and yippies were the martyrs. Scenes held a nightmare quality: Crowds yelling "the whole world's watching" while policemen dragged demoostrators to paddywagons. • •••Senator Abraham Rubicoff, taunting Daley from the platform. , •••The Illinois delegation surrounded by plain clothes guardsmen. Deliberate and sensitive oratory by Hubert Humphrey rallied the party and eased tensions in the final moments. He dared, at the last, to speak the nam.3 which had been avoided by others, the nam•3 of the President of our natioo, Lyndoo Baines .Johnson, The Democratic Convention of the long hot summer of 1968 was a reflection of the mood of the nation, ANITA NORMAN

First Change Since 1922 The college auditorium is currently undergoing the first major changes made in it since its construction in 1922. Work began on the auditorium in the first part of May and completion is expected soon after the first of the year. The work is being done. by architects Clark & Enersen, Olsson, Burroughs & Thomsen of Lincoln and is coil· tracted by C .& R Engineering of Beatrice, Nebraska. Improvements being made will include: an accoustical ceiling, additional dressfag rooms, more storage space, new walls, better lighting, new floor covering, air conditioning, better heating and ventilation, more readily accessible public dressing rooms, and better seating. The auditorium, when completed, will have a seating capacity of 652, somewhat less than before the renovation. Mr Ebner, college business manager, said the new seats will be similar to those in the Fine Arts Aud• itorium. Total cost of the project is $246,000. This sum was appropriated by the State Legislature,

The faculty and staff of Peru State College welcome you to the Campus of a Thousand Oaks! Rich in the tradition of more than a century of service to state and nation, we look forward with anticipation to this and future years. The College proposes to maintain · a high level of academic performance commensurate with the needs of the times and abilities of its student body, We are impressed by the seri~ ousness of the majority of our students to develop a sense of responsibility, purPose and service to others. To these aims we pledge our fullest support. In an ever-changing society the College proposes to promote standards of citizenship in harmony with the best interests of the entire college community. We do not propose to cling to that which is old just because it is old, nor do we propose to embrace that which is new just because it is new, We do propose to establish mutually-acceptable patterns of behavior, conductandperformance which will best serve the college community, College attendance is a privilege available to only a fraction of college-age-youth, thus it· is :Something to be guarded and cherished by those fortunate enough to be a member of a college community, The citizens of the state of Nebraska have invested millions of dollars to provide facilities and programs for you, Thus not only your interests but those who have provided a major share of your eel-' ucational opportunity must be protected and nurtured. A well-prepared and dedicated staff is here to assist you, but it will be your attitudes, your use of abilities and time that will determine the degree of your success,

STOP Take Note! It has been observed that class elections at Peru State have not been efficient. Officers are often elected by a small minority of their classmates, and more often than not, they would · rather not have been elected. To combat this Inefficiency, a new system of electing class officers has been enacted by the S,G,A, Any student wanting to run for president of his class should sel{lct a slate of officers, (Vice president, secretary-treasurer) and obtain twenty-five signatures of members of his class in the form of a petition. This peiition should then be submitted to any S,G,A, member. Each class will be limited to five petitions, with the exception of the freshman class. The freshman class will be limited to five petitions for class officer elections and seven petitions for membership in the S.G.A. Any student not on probation may file a petition, or have his name on a petition, At least three petitions from each class will be received before elections will begin. The students In this college will be expected to accept this responsibility. If they don't there will be no class officers, and consequently less student voice. Surely no student wants this,

Support The Bobcats Team support is as important an ingredient to a ball club as are the players. Knowing that there is some one on the sidelines cheering you -to victory can be motivation enough to get the job done, This weekend the Peru state College Bobcats host their first grid game of the 6868 season. The Bobcats have two road games under their belt now and are looking forward to playing before a large partisan crowd of Peru state fans. Now it is up to the school to show the spirit necessary to win ball games by lending their moral support to get something physical accomplished. So this week let's start a trend that will coo· tinue throughout the year and bring home to PSC many athlet· ic victories and show our athletes we appreciate their hard work.

Bobcats hold back the Owls.

Owl Air Game Ruins Peru A balanced Tarkio team displayed field superiority Saturday in beating the Peru Bobcats 26 to 7, All scoring was finished by the end of the first half, with the second half being a grueling defensive battle, The outstanding player of the game was Tom Devlin, a junior from W. Sayville, New York. The first score for the Owls was a· Griffith to Devlin passrun for fifty-eight yards. Larry O'Neill set up Tarkio's next touchdown with an interception on the forty-five yard line of Tarkio, and returned it to the Bobcat thirty-seven. Griffith then hit Steve Shields with a ve yard pass for the touchdown. Near the end of the first quarter, Griffith fired a thirteen yard pass to D\lvlin for another touchdown. In the second quarter, Peru's offense showed signs of life as they ground out yardage to make their only score of the night. The brightest spot for Peru was Sherwin Williams from Omiha with several fine efforts in the second quarter. The final score of the game was probably the best play of the game, Quar-

In the third quarter inside the Tarkio ten yard stripe, Peru lost the ball after four tries, and in the last quarter, a fourth and six pass failed for the touch· down. Peru, however, was not without its moments as the defense made several brilliant goal line stands, The final one was ended with an interception by Arnold Johnston in the end zone, Game statistics: p

Peru State College's cross country team which won the Nebraska College Conference, the NA!A District XI, and placed seventh in the nation last year, ran away from the rest of the field in winning their first cross country meet of the year-the se· cond annual University of South Dakota Cross Country lnvi· tational meet at Vermillion, South Dakota, Peru placed seven of the first thirteen runners, and captured a.1 unofficial total of 25 points, 51 points better than their nearest contender, Wayne State Col· lege which ended the meet with 76 points. South Dakota state finished third with 87 points, and the University of South Dakota rounded out the top four with 101 points. Jack Weyers, who last year gained All-American status in cross country, won first place with a time of 15:36 over the three mile course. Van Allen, co-captain of the Peru team, placed fourth in a time of 15:· 57, while Dave Harris, a fresh· man from Auburn, captured fifth place in a time of 16:15. Ray Uher came in seventh in 16:25 Dave Hillman eighth in 16:27 Jay Hagerman nipth in 16:28 and Ron Jones thirteenth in a time of 16:46. Points were not recorded for Hagerman and Jones. Peru's next meet wm be this coming weekend in the South Dakota State University Invitation• al at Brookings, South Dakota.

Coach Pitts, after the opening loss to Tarkio, was able to peer through a gloomy cloud of poor pass defense and find some bright spots in the Peru ground attack. "We had several fresh·

man backs wholookedgood.Sherwin Williams looked exceptional. Virgil Mitchtlll and Dave Bohl· ken looked good as running backs as did the veteran John Bristol. John Barnard and Larry Jackson, two other freshmen, look· ed good in the offensive line and Lee Dunekacke and Mike Mulvaney, both veterans, played their · usual good game," the coach commented. Peru escaped the gam.3 with no serious injuries although Coach Pitts cited the absence of two regulars, Don Morris and Chuck Mizerski. Neither was able to suit uP-Morris with a pulled hamstring muscle and Mizerski with a boil, Looking ahead to next week, Pitts said, "We're going to have our hands full with Yankton. They've lost two games in two years, both times to Westmar."

"The Organizational Fair was very successful," said chair· man Steve Mason. Under SGA sponsorship, the first organizational Fair was held September 18 in the student Center from 7:00 to 10:00 p,m, The fair helped to stimulate and promote interest in the various campus organizations, Over 20 different organizations were represented,

with unique problems and that he would be willing to discuss problems with any student whenever possible. Dr. Cox feels students are the decision· makers, .but that any service performed is designed to help. The Guidance Office, located in 307 in the Administration Building, also offers a testing service, including aptitude and reading tests, and personality tests, There is no charge on individual tests, 11s there is on nation-wide testing programs. Dr, Cox referred students to Mr Johnson, Director of Placement, for answers to questions aboutjobsorgeneralbackground information, It was brought to the attention of the sutdent body that .on October 9, Frank Morrison, for· mer Nebraska Governor, will talk on a study of problems in India, Everyone is urged to attend,

In a poll recently conducted by the Ped staff, a representative percentage of the student body was asked for their selection among the three candi· dates, The students polled were 39 per cent republican, 41 per cent democrat, and 32 per cent independants, The results were as follows: Nixon 54 per cent Humphrey 16 per cent Wallace. 9 per cent Undecided 21 per cent A computation of the student body that are registered voters yielded the following figures, Nixon 52 per cent Humphrey 19 per cent Wallace 9 per cent Undecided 20 per cent The pollers were quick to ask for reasons behind a selection and not so quick to get answers, The following are some of those that did come up with reasons for their choice among thethree .contenders. -Nixon is the best ofthethree evils,

-Nixon is the less of three evils, -.,I liked McCarthy, -.,I don't like any of the candidates, • -None of them are any good, -My candidate was killed, -Cause I don'tlikeHumphrey, -Because I was for him in gradeschool, -Why? Cause I wanted McCarthy, Why? Cause I didn't like Humphrey, Why? Cause he's too much like Johnson, How? I dunno, he just is, A second drain on the innocent student· was the question as to Agnews state, The answers ranged from "fairly sane" to "Idaho," In the end about 50 per cent of the students knew the correct answer proving that 50- per cent didn't know the answer, Another strange correlation was that the six people who voted contrary to their political party convictions were all in their early twenties, proving about as much as the question on Agnew,

S. 6.A. Plans Homecoming The Homecoming theme for Peru State's 1968 Homecoming is "The World and It's Countries." F.ach organization will choose a country to build a theme on and then relate that theme to the football game with Chadron, Carol Schlosser, Chairman of the S,G,A, Display Committee, announced that each organization has been assigned a site to build their display, Any questions about this should be directed to her, She also asked that each organization should contact the S,G.A. when they decide which country they are using, This would eliminate duplication, To provide incentive, the S,G,A will award trophies to the best three displays.

Used Candidate to Try Agam Martin Luth~r King once said, "Richard Nixon is irrelevant to our times." Born out of a gruel of conservatism and old party debts, Richard Nixon was served to the nation as a Barry who was not quite Barry• tt•s true. Barry was perti· nent. Nixon is now concentrating on his own "for. gotten American". At first thought, it looks as though he's in favor of aid to Indians as the original "forgottesi. Americansu. He isn't. He's in favor of "gut power,,. His "forgotten American" is middle class, mid· dle ·aged, and mad. The riots have bothered our "forgotten AmericanH and hejs beginning to put on weight. He's about to buy another television set and his wife gets her hair done once a week. The "forgotten American" is tired of being called "middle class'j. So is Nixon. Other than his nose. the most striking charac· teristic of Nixon is his choice of vice-presidential material. Agnew is middle class, has two and one-third· children, and doesn't really dig ob freedom of speech. This year's catchword is "law and order". Dick doesn't like disorder. Spiro doesn't like disorder. The "forgotten American" doesn't like disorder. Lenny Bruce doesn't care. Nixon's middle class backlash vote should be sufficient to catapault him into the White House and Wallace into the shed out back. DON DODGE

Welcome or Punishment? Freshman initiation has long been a regular. occurrence in the freshman orientation program at Peru State. Perhaps it has been around too long. The regular orientation week activities include events which are enjoyable, encouraging, and do not arouse disgust. Initiation night also includes some activities which are humorous, yet do not degrade or anger the individuals involved. In talking to a freshman pre-initiation night, there is an, air of excitement. Talking with a freshman post- ''beauty treatment", the air is cold, the individual is distant, and the freshman is beginning to wonder if he made the right decision. How many people realize how difficult it is to get eggs, honey, and other atrocious ingredients out of long hair?

Dear Editor, . Rumor has it that each of the girls dorms will have a meetthis year and pick a candidate to represent them for Homecoming Queen. This way all the girls will vote on _who will be Queen, or will they? Will every one be represented in the election? How about the commuters? They make up from a third to a half of the campus enrollment yet they or any choice they would make would not be eligible, This isn't the only time when the commuters have been slighted! All representation of the students is through organizations, the class elections, and dorm elections, Most · commuters can not come to organizational meetings and since they do not live in the dorms they have no representation, How's that for the democratic American way of doing things? Here every group but one of the largest on campus is represented, Why haven't they been rep.. resented? For one reason and that is organization. Since they can't get together to air and present their grievances the S.G,A and Administration tends to forget them, or if they do hear a complaint they ignore it, I ask you, how can you forget and ignore a third of the students when it comes to student affairs, fhis a gross discrimination of the worst kind. This must cease, The ones to do it are the students themselves through the S.G.A Jerry Barnard

Dear Editor: With all the attention now being focused on the need for new and better-in the students' op.. inion-dorm hours, I think now is also the time for us to give some serious consideration to the plight of the womoo stu• dents on this campus who are 20 or over. Our problem is that we are still forced to live in a dorm. We are legally voters. That is supposed to mean that we are responsible people, capable of making mature decisions. We share a. responsibility for what goes oo politically in this country, just as do the administra· tors who .determine college policy. But evidentally someooe still deems us incapable ofmak· ing a mature decision about where we want to live and the manner in which we conduct ourselves once we're there. There is also a very practical aspect to our complaint. When somebody said that a man's home is his castle,Idon't think he meant that we have to

pay the price of a castle. One need not be very en garde to real· ize that dorm..cype castles are much more expensive than those that are outside the Campus Kingdom. Here's one peasant who would be grateful for a revision in the King's Decree Touche? ' BARB DERRICK, Age 23 Castle: Morgan Hall Dear Editor: • School spirit should hit an all· time high this year at Peru State. We have more than 100 years of tradition behind us. Spirit is often confined to ath· letic events only. This year we want to promote interest in all activities, The Student Govern· ing ·Association attempted to stimulate more interest by spon• soring the "Organization Fair" and they were successfui. S.G.A. is a strong organiza· tion this year. We've got new leaders who are interested in what happens to Peru. We need more enthusiastic organizers who are willing to work for the betterment of our school. Blue Devils aitd White Angels r~ally have the ole school spirit this year. Both organizations are promoters of pep and work together in stimulating the Bobcat athletic teams. We have a great football team this year which definitely has skill, but they need our confidence in them to back them up. Peru State, college of a thousand oaks, is a school to be proud of. Not only Peru's tra· dition but her sense of loyalty has caused much pride among Peruvians. She deserves all the support and praise you can give her• Be a Bobcat booster and support your school and all her activities. The spirit this year ~ only be what we as Peru• vtans make it. · Bobette Masters

Considering last week's initiation night•s activities, it must be ·admitted that the events were well organized .and presented. However, they were ~boring- to a certain extent. The areas most appreciated were those where all freshmen could participate- where no one was singled out to receive a "special service". There are positive sides to initiation, if they are presented as a welcome and not as a punishment. Welcome week should be just that! Freshmen should be encouraged to develop a sense of belonging instead of trying to remember faces who admini· stered unpleasantries. Initiation is okay within certain limits, those limits being the following: 1.

interests of its own development . India has to rely on alargenumber of countries; and America alone, in spite of a high stan• dard of technology and willingness to help, is unable to supply all the necessary finances and know-how; and therefore, an alignment with America at the cost of antagonizing the Communists and other countries does not seem to suit these interests. American policy In Asia is said to be based on the national interests of the non• Communist world, and for the preservation of its economic and political hegemony. An alignment with the American block is also an encouragement to the leftest tendencies, which may gain strength as a reaction to such an alignment. Some of the Anti • Americanism in countries like the Philippines Thailand, and Malaysia, which are closely under American influence can be viewed in this light, Increase in American presence in itself may be a cause of such an Anti-Ameri· canism. To Indians, American foreign policy in Asia has been a failure so far as the fulfill· ment of its professed objective that is, the containment of Com• munistic or Socialistic systems. This is obviously clearfrom her predicament in Vietnam and the attitudes and reactions of countries like Cambodia, Burma and Pakistan, particularly the latter where American failure to help against India has pushed that country more and more into the Russian and also the Chinese camp. If American motive in Asia was containment of Communist influence, there seems to be no guarantee of its fulfill• ment in the near future, There ·are a large number of unsettled issues and disputes among ma· ny Asian countries which lead to the disruption of military pacts and cut at the very root of American policy. American policy in Asia has failed to bring these disputes to terms in the interests of its professed Anti· Communism. Some of the Asi· an countries are also afraid to antagonize the Chinese mam· moth next door and make friend· ship with a distant country. In· dians have, therefore, always regarded'American involvement in Asia as unfortunate, and not in the ultimate interests of the Am.erican people; but the dif· ferent political parties have va· rying attitudes on this issue, BY MR RAM AGARWAL Because of the vast Middle East sources of petroleum, about 85 per cent of the total northbound traffic in the Suez Canal toward European ports consists of oil or oil products.

The coach also praised his defensive line saying, "We had good line play defensively. I~' s hard to single out any one mdividual when they hold the other team like they did." "Over all, the thing I was most pleased with was that we kept our poise throughout the . game, We played most of the game with our backs to the wall where one mistake could have killed us," Turning to offense, the coach said "Our offense didn't opera~ as well as it did against Tarkio. Our passing offense didn't show up very well, although it did account for our only touchdown on a 77 yard pass from Mark Weiler to Wayne White, setting up a TD sneak by Weiler." Looking ahead to next week, Pitts commented, "Southern State lost to Chadron' 21-20 in their first ball game and then beat General Beadle 24-10 Saturday night, so we're expecting a handful."

This marker briefly tells some of the historical facts in Peru's growth. The . information on this marker includes --such in:formation as: Peru was the first state-supported school in the state of Nebraska, it was first known as Mount Vernon Seminary, the school was first started with one hall and sixty acres of land, and the campus has grown to include over 100 acres of land and housing for over 1,000 stude~ts. _ From this marker, new students and visitors to our campus will be able to gain a brief resume of Peru's history.

Everyone at Peru continually gripes about the nothingness of the town · and the lack of activities and entertainment at the collegeo If its true this year, the only nothingness . at P~ru is its student bodyo The SGA has sponsored various activities during the beginning of the school year, but there has been only a mediocre attendance and a minimum of · participation in all of them. In two weeks, homecoming will be here, and one is afraid to think of the great big "zilch" that Peru's student body will aide it with. There is more to homecoming than building displays that. may win your club first prize. are five very pretty girls who want your votes for homecoming queen; there are "umpteen" football players Who want you ·at the game to yell for them, and to yell at them if the occasion warrants the chiding0 There is a homecoming play which will have two performances so that everyone will have a chance to see it. As usual, though, the student body of Peru will be packing their cars toward home when the time comes for them to add a little spirit to the festiyities0 It seems that Joe Blow, the high school buddy back home, takes precedence over the obligations the Peru student has to his col· lege and its activities. . In the coming year, students at Peru will . have the chance to see several programs with entertainment that will be intellectually stimulating as well as entertaining. Fr.ank B. Morrison, ex-governor of Nebraska ....a.nd a member of President Johnson's commission which recently returned from a fact finding tour of India, will appear before the Peru faculty and student body on October 9. On October 21, WES (World Entertainment Series) brings the EL TRIO ROMANTICO, a singing guitar trio with all the color and pageantry of old Spain and Mexico, to Peru's campus. Other WES attractions during the . '68-'69 school year will include "Journey to El Dorado", a dramatized portrait of Ed· gar Allen Poe, on January 7; Ronald Jacobowitz concert pianist, on February 18; and Bhaskar and Shalar, masters of the native dances of India, on March 11. These are only a few of the programs that the students at Peru will have a chance to see0 They are worthless, though, if no one attends them - worthless to the student and to the people who worked hard to obtain them. Peru isn't nothing unless YOU make it nothing. Leave your suitcases in the· forms. It takes YOU to make your college worko If the weekends at Peru are dead, its be· cause YOU are at home instead of being on campus. Stay and help them come alive~ Organize events and bac~ events that can make everyone's college life a time to re· member. Bring your college alive.

You really can't blame some of the Juniors for not coming because, "we didn't know if anybody was running or what." The Junior class was the only one that didn't have campaign posters all over the campus. There is a good reason for this though, nobody had turned in a petition until they were drafted. No one had even thought about running for officeo It was rather useless for the candidates to talk about the apathy of students when over half of the class didn't come to the meetingo When the officers are elected and the complaining starts, will you have a right to be complaining? Lvnn Sailors

Try to do Something Last week Ped contained a letter to the editor complaining about girls dorm hourso Several more editorials have been received concerning this same subjecto Everywhere girls gather the conversation turns to this subject0 Before this· continues, I would like to present some factso About three weeks ago, Danna Henry and I, representing the S.G,A., attended dorm meetings where both girl's halls were re· presentedo We informed the girls that we felt that the S.G.A, could do something about extending dorm hourso We did ask, however, that a petition be presented to the S,G.A, before we took any action. We asked that this petition c·ontain the names of a majority of the students on campuso We asked for this petition simply to find out how much student support there would be for changing hours. After two weeks we have only received 180 nameso This does not indicate very much support, but more than that it indicates that the girls in the dorms don't seem to want later hours bad enough to work for them. All the · signatures obtained were gotten by simply putting the petition on the bulletin boards of the girls' dorms and hoping that one-half the students on campus would stop by to sign it0 Of course this didn't happen and the petition seems deado Most of the girls on campus will probably become quite irate when they have read this editorial, but girls - before you write a reply, or before you complain anymore about dorm hours, try to do something about them. LARRY SORENSON


Dear Editor: I was surprised at the result of Peru State College's pall of presidential candidates. It showed that more than half of the Peruvians advocate Nixon, I'm not saying that Peruvians· are too conservative or tooprogresg sive, but I could not understand the fast change of their ideol ogy. Remember the excitement of students on this campus when Bob Kennedy came to Auburn? There is a parade going oo. Why don't you come? Get your camera. 0


Don't miss this chance. I don't know, really. Anyway, he is supposed to be very famous. Everybody is going, Let's go. Campus was empty except for several dogs. After awhile, peo. pie bewitched by Kennedy came back and started putting the stickers on everything they could find, Then where have all the Ken· nedy supporters gone? Yes, Bob Kennedy is not in this world, yet his idea is still alive, He is different from Humphrey or Nixon, but listen carefully. Who has the closer ideas to Ken· nedy's'? Who started the movement of civil rights? Which ooe is more eager and has more specific ideas on stopping the war? We are lucky enough to be able to make our ovm decision, Study carefully before you do, You must taste an apple to kn ow if you like it or not, Don't say ·you like an apple because your girlfriend does.

The NETCHE group is making plans for many more collegeoriented programs for this and future years.

El Trio Romantico to visit Peru State campus.


.Spanish Troubadours I~· To Appear Here

Club FA 104


EL TRIO ROMANTICO, three · singing, strumming troubadours from the mountains of Northern New Mexico will perform in the Fine Arts Auditorium Monday evening at 8:00 October z.i. Members of the trio, Ramon Hernandez, Antonio Mendoza and Vincente Saucedo play flamenco, classical, and folk guitar. Vincente also is accomg plished on the mandolin and the requinto-a small 5 string guitar-like instrument. Presently on an extensive tour of the Central States, the trio splits up much of the year and each member plays separately

in one of Taos' colorful restaurants. On holidays and at Fiesta they have always combined· their talents and appeared as EL TRIO ROMANTICO.

Wednesday, October 2, was the kick-off of a two-day class officer election period which drew the votes of 57 per cent of the Peru student body. During convocation period, hopefuls for the office of president put their success and the success- of their running mates on the line when they gave their campaign speeches and platforms to their respective ~lasses, Immediately following the speeches, balloting began. for the next two days students placed their "X's" for their best friend, for the best look· ing girl, or for the person they believed was most deserving of the office, Meanwhile, candidates not only reminded their backers to vote, but in the end, transported them to the site of the voting tables and showed ·them where their "X" should be placed, When the clock struck six

on Thursday, October 3, the voting ended and the counting began. When the ballots were tallied, the results were soon known to every candidate and their followers.

The


sophomores showed the best representation with 71 per cent of the class casting their ballots.

There would be even° tually a revolution. Politics are the answer. The United States can build or they can destroy. Politics can be dirty with corrupt. brutal men or can be worthwhile and honest with young ideas, We have to help make it the latter. Governor Morrison stated that India definitely has the capabilities to be a major eXPorting nation, She lacks the training and the know-how needed.

For the past 3 years Peru has been working on the design and organization of a graduate program with the advice and counsel of a North Central Association Consultant. A Study to determine feasibi· lity of a graduate program is being conducted by Dr. Keith Melvin, Dean of the College, The survey instrument was prepared by the Bureau of Educational Research, University of Denver, The results will show amount and area of interest in this program. Letters and questionnaires have been sent to superinten· dents and principals asking their co-operation in conducting the survey. The geographic area involved includes 23 Nebraska counties, 10 counties in South· west Iowa, 4 counties in North· east Kansas and 3 counties in Northwest Missouri. Questionnaires were given to present seniors by S,G,A, members Den Dodge, Carol Schios• ser, Lynn Sailors, Greg Reirdes, Tom Howell, Jon Miller and senior class president candig dates, Wayne Willcoxon and Phil Herbster, who were under the guidance of president, Larry Sor. en sen, Further consideration will. be given this project when Dr, El· mer Clark, Dean of College of Education, Southern Illinois Uni· versity, Carbondale; Illinois, will be on campus Monday and Tuesday, October 14 and 15, Dr. Clark will be serving in the capacity of North Central Association Consultant and will confer with the Graduate Coun· cil and staff members relative to a graduate program being instituted here at Peru State, Attention will be given to the matter of faculty, library, and other resources necessary for a graduate program,

On The Politics of Positivity




Once again, the ms.sses of people in this country have shown that they believe in a man with. simple answers to their questions. They will accept a come::lian because he,s "sick and tired of bein, sick and tired'' as they are. George Wallace has shown that there is still an American somewhere who has never heard that progress brings new problems., He tells jokes and yells at the demonstrators to show that all one needs to be right is volumeo This seems to reek of that old tactic of treating the symptoms and ignoring the disease. Just because you,ve silenced a man doesn't mean you've convinced him. George Wallace, a maa with no obvious qualifications for the office except that he,s ma:l., seems to be the greatest advocate of totalitarianism in this country. Letts look at what he advocates: 1. no freedom of speech. 2. no freedom of public assembly. 3. no restrictions on police. 4. no freedom of press 5. no skin pigment Have you noticed a common word? This is the politics of negative postitivity. There should be positively no dissent. · Perhaps the time has come in our history to admit that radicals exist on more than one side of an issue. We can hope that there is enough sanity left to reject a radical from the right wing as well as the left Maybe someone will realize that freedom of speech means just that. George Wallace is a symbol of a sickness that borders on malignancy. In time, our country ma.y reject the dictatorship of the majority. Until that day, we must only hope that the nation will ma1ntain enough reason to reject a bigot of the overwhelming scope of George Wallace. Don Dodge

Peru: Not Just the Oak Let's face it. As far as trees go, the oak is king on Peru State's campus. However, the woody-minded student shouldnot forget that our campus is also abundant with more than fifty other varieties of trees and shrubs, Dr, John C, Christ, head of the science and math division, is working in cooperation with the Federal Soil Con· servation Service in a project to label these different varieties of trees and shrubs, Permanent weather-proof markers will appear in the near future, Dr, Christ states, "The purpose of this program is to acquaint students and the public with common trees and shrubs which grow abundantly in this area, It is hoped that this will serve to foster an interest on campus." The college and Dr. Christ

are assisted in the project by Robert J. Lemaine, conservation officer in Lincoln, and Virgil Overbeck, regional conse1.'' vation biologist at Auburn. Besides its namesake, the Campus of a Thousand Oaks tree inventory also includes such rare varlettes as the Japanese yew, the bur-chinkapin oak hybrid, winged euonymus, and four rare ginkgo trees, a disease and insect-resistant tree native to Northern China and Japan, Dr, Christ believes 1hat due to the rich, fertile land found along the banks of the Missouri, the area around Peru would rank high in number of plant species when compared to al· most any other section of the country, Similar projects are being promoted by the SCS on college campuses across the nation,


Mr Glen Hunter started his first day at Peru with the rote firing of several cafeteria busboys and cutting many others' time in half, having no preference to the poor, indepted or married, Broughton Food is paid hundreds of thousands of dollars ·a year by the student. Is it too much to expect them to pay a few impoverished students afew dollars a week? After deductions a busboy recei ves 90 cents for working the evening meal. If Mr Glen Hunter feels that this superciltin spending will earn him promotion, I would like to remind him ? that Eldon was a real success · because he got along with his help, They worked for him not because of him, How much is it worth to have Tyrus's contagious laugh around at meal time?

Library Adds 3M '400' In the past the library has been composed of books, magazines, filmstrips, recordings, pictures and ephmeral material in the vertical file to aid stu• dents and instructors with their work. The library has now added a 3M "400" Reader-Print· er. This new machine will be an asset to students in doing research and writing term papers, It will be of value to instruc• tors in making copies of ma• terials for reference and class use. This new automatic machin serves a three-fold purpose in the library. This machine is easily operated. The user sits in front of the screen and threads the machine with a microfilm cartridge, on which whole issues of newspapers may be printed The picture is focused on th screen so the user can r any part of the newspaper h desires. Microfiche, another type of film, may also be used in this machine, From ten to eighteen individual pages of magazines are filmed on specially-made cards. The user may foe the lens on separate p for reading, The third purpose of the Read er-Printer is the most interest ing, .The user may make an in stant photograph of any portioo of the film he desires by mer ly pushing a button. The copy is ejected fro!il the top of the machine where he can tear it off.

The two outstanding players picked from the football squad this week were Lee Dunekacke and Bill Everhart. Lee, a second semester jun· ior, has played football since coming to Peru. He is a graduate of the Johnson Nebraska high school, where he participated in basketball, track and played halfback on the football team. Senior Bill Everhart is playing football for his fourth year at Peru. He plays defensive guard as well as offensive guard and has also participated in baseball. Bill is a graduate of Bed· ford Community high school in Bedford, Iowa, where he participated in all sports. Both men agreed that the back field has a lot of depth, more so than the line; but Bill pointed out that injuries have taken their toll in the line, Lee was optimistic about the October 12 contest at Kearney but both men feltthatPeru would be victorius with good team work and support from fellow Bobcats. Hats off to you two outstanding guards and we hope that you continue your good work. ·

Defense was the name of the game as Iritramural touch foot· ball started out with many a heartbreak. The defending champion, Spartans were nearly upset by the tough defense of the Iron Butterflies, but the champs were able to come through with a double extra point to win 8 to 6, A little later the Studs were matched by the cool and calm of the Marksman but, the Studs were able to recover from their earlier shock, to wipe out the Shady Oak Bombers later in the week. However it was not the well known teams which demonstrat• ed the defensive prowness. The Cherry Pickers and the Dol· phines did that, The only trouble was the defenses were matched by each others offenses, the offenses just could not move as the game ended with no scores. Other results were the Cool Jerks escaping the Green Jack· ets and the Mysterians defeating the Nads.

Jody Meyer, a pretty petite senior, was elected Queen of the 1968 Peru State Homecoming last Wednesday by the Student body of Peru. Jody was representing Majors Hall. Jody is Jl!ajoring in Elementary Education, is a member of Newman Club, and has been a cheerleader the past two years. She was her Sophomore Class S.G.A. representative, was the Junior Class May Fete attendant last year, and was treasurer of her Sophomore Class. Jody was to be crowned by Dr. Goman at halftime of last Saturday's game with Chadron, and was to reign at the Homecoming dance held in the Student Center. Jody is from Nehawka, Nebraska, and surely the people of Nehawka are as proud ·of Jody, as are the students of Peru. Congratulations, Jody!

U.N. Dinner Served A United NatibnsDinnerSmorgasbord was served by members of the Home Economics Club at Peru State College, Tuesday, October 15, in the Auditorium of the Education Building, from 5:30 to 7:30 p,m, The dinner included such fa· vorite dishes as ham loaf, beef and noodles, sliced turkey, seal· loped potatoes, sweet potato balls, green beans with chee_se

sauce and buttered com. The salads included cranberry-apple jello salad, five-bean salad and a fruit plate, while dessert con· sisted of upside-down cake and fruit cup. A choice of coffee, tea, milk, or orange drink ac· companied the meal, along with white and whole wheat rolls. Jolene Piper, senior from Norfolk, provided the piano back ground music. The public was invited. 0

Basketball, trampoline ac• tivity, rope climbing, and vol· leyball were the order of the day for the off-campus married students, wives and children for the last two Sundays, The rewards for their enthusiasm and exercise were four fun-filled hours which produced blistered feet, aching muscles, stomach cramps, and a few bruises from the basketbail game which at times looked like a football game, and at times like a wrest• ling match, Oversized fannies and stomachs bounced as n;mch as the game balls. Clothes look· ed as if they had just come out of a washing machine - wat and wrinkled, The panting and gasping of the over-fed and un· der-exercised marrieds could be heard all over the gym. The only thing that was missing was the use of the swimming pool this only because everyone had left their suits in the old home town. Maybe the wives were lucky, though, for there may be a few husbands who want to be single again, If there are any other brave, out of shape married students who want to share in the mass murder, come on and die. Just b.e at the gym on Sunday afternoons at four o'clock.

on Thursday, October 10, and discussed many items of interest to Peru's student body, A petition was presented to the S,C,B, concerning the campus cafeteria and the complex cafeteria, The new manager of Broughton Food Service at Peru reassured the petitioners that changes were needed and would be made, A motion was made and seconded to supportMrHun· ter in his program. The motion carried. Plans were accepted by the Student Center Board for an addition to the present bulletin board in the student Center. The plans were drawn up by the l,A, Club, S.C,B, members were notified that a table will be placed under the stairs for the purpose of making available to students a school calendar, a student directory and a complaint box of which students may use to in· form the Board of any com· plaints they may have about the services offered in the Center, or misuse of Center facilities which they may encounter. The homecoming display was discussed and members volun· teered their assistance for its construction. The theme of the display is "Gdalrush '68,"

Right to Dissent


Letters to th e Ed.1tor Dear Editor: I have heard a lot of com· plaining around campus this year by people whom I regarded as responsible individuals: Th~ essence of these complaints 1s these people think that the "Negroes are taking over the Stu• dent Center Lounge." I was, of course concerned about this so I observed the activity in the lounge for some time, - These are my con· clusions. 1. When the Blacks are in the lounge the Whites avoid it. 2. When the Whites are in the lounge the Blacks avoid it. These are not strict rules of behavior, naturally. Occasionally some brave souls mingle with those people of the other group. I think it's about time that narrow - minded little people· opened their eyes and realized that we live in a world that 'demands' OPEN-MINDEDNESS. To those individuals who will be offended by this letter, I offer this old cliche'; "If the Shoe Fits Wear It",

Sincerely, Jim Butts

If You Drink, Don't Drive The old saying, "If you drink, don't drive -If you drive, don't drink," is still best. Dr, Julian Waller, a Berkeley, California, physician, offers this guide for those who must on occasion mix these two actiVities: "No matterhowwellonethinks he can hold his liquor, he should not have more than one drink (a single 1V2 ounce jigger) per hour. He should dilute it with water, soda or other non-alcoholic liquid and should eat food with his drink," Food can reduce blood alchohol concentration to a great extent. Hosts and hostesses serving food before drinks will re· duce blood alcohol concentration, by about a half, Concentration can be reduced by one-fourth to one-half, by the serving of food with drinks, Dr, Waller adds, "While many adults can get away with drink· ing one or two before driving, the teen-age and young adult driver cannot. No person with less than two years driving ex· perience or who has been drink· ing hard liquor for less than two years should not under any circumstances consider driving after drinking." Among those drivers and adult pedestrians who have been fatally injured in highway crashes, the records show abouthalfhave been drinking, "If I can get away with one or two, maybe I can get away with three." Dr. Waller points out that long before a person appears intoxicated, they are adversely affected by alcohol, Often a person who has had 5 to 10 drinks looks as if he had only "a couple." This person is extremely dangerous as a driver or a pedestrian, CORRECTION In last week's story about the Phi Beta Lambda meeting, the names of two officers were ommitted, They are LeRoy Koeh· ler, president and Jane Budler, vice-president, .

The Cherry Pickers, Iron Butterflies, and Studs served notice that they will be the teams to beat following the second week of fierce intramural touch foot· ball competition. Th~ Cherry Pickers and Dol· phins have the distinction of holding opponents scoreless this season. The clash between the Pickers and Dolphins resulted in a scoreless tie the first week of competition. The Nads, the cellar team, received no sympathy from the Iron Butterflies and the tough Studs. Both of these exhibited the spirit and punch which make them championship contenders, The Mysterians are truly the mystery of the league. They are now 2-0 after dumping the Shady Oak Bombers, but they have not opposed a team with any victories.

If we could have cut off the shotgun, they would have had to go back to their regular formation and there was a good chance we could have beat them.· "i thought we plt;;ed our best offensive game all year during the first half, but we were trying to play catch-up ball, Satterfield was more effective passing than he has been before this year. The line blocking was the best it's been this season, I thought Sherwin Williams ran real well," Pitts said of the Peru offense. When asked about the injury situation, Coach Pitts quipped, "We have a real tough Blue Cross team." Major injuries included: Satterfield out for the season, Arnold Johnston out ' ,_. the season with a fractured wrist, Mike Mulvaney possibly out for the season with a bad ankle, Lesser injuries to othkey players: Virgil Mitchell, D1Ve Bohlken, John Bristol, and Ron Meier all questionable for the next game.

SDS !!Academic ·

Grave-diggers" / I


"Nothing less than the de· struction of society itself" ••• the ultimate goal of the Students for a Democratic Society. This shocking analysis is presented to us by Eugene Methvin, Read· er's Digest author, who states that this was a direct quote from SDS officials and members, Is this microscopic organization really that dangerous? Af· ter all, its membership is only an iota of America's total col· lege population. And, more important, is is communist inspired? Revealing evidence that SDSis a serious potential threat to the American way of life and not only to our cherished academic freedom, is found in Methvin's Digest article, Already, SDS has managed to play a leading role in .the violence, bloodshed, and arson that have exploded across our campuses in the pre· vious few years, This is only a foundation from which SDS in· tends to build however. Actually, the word "democra· tic" in SDS' title couldn't be further from the truth. Again quoting an SDS speaker from their national convention at East Lansing, Michigan last June: "The ability to mani· pulate people through violence and mass media has never been greater, the potential for us as radicals never more exciting than now," This is democratic? FBI director J, Edgar Hoover has said: "They are a new type of subversive and their danger is great." Some SDS tactics seem, on the surface, to be nothing morethan high school pranks: pulling fire alarms, starting trash can fires, making appointments with deans and registrars by the hundred:, to "overuse the bureaucracy," checking out large numbers of books -from libraries to disrupt This hell • bent organization must be curbed immediately. Methvin declares that firmer action by school authorities in the recent upheaval at Columbia University, particularly in the area of supporting the anti-radi· cal "Majority Coalition," would have averted escalating violence that culminated in cancellation of classes at Columbia,

It must be carried further than merely a stronger hand by offi· cials, however, An overwhelming majority of students against these SDS radicals is absolutely necessary if our campuses are to be violence-free. To help attain this majority, legitimate grievances by students must rec cei ve "far more attention" from officials than they have. This closer bond between the majority of students and their administrators through closer contract on actual studentgripes must not merely be a program for the future, but something that happens here and now. It must happen before these "Stu· · dents" for a "Democratic" Society have become, as Sidney Hook, New York University philosophy professor, put&.j.t, "The true grave-diggers of c.cademic freedom in the United States.''

study programs and registering under false names 'SO -"federal agents will spend much time attempting to track down people who do not exist.'' Extremely more dangerous, however, is the SDS' link wit'l hard-core communists. Known communists have sat in on SDS meetings and coached organizers since the organization was founded in 1962, SDS leaders frequently travel to Red capi• tals; two of three national officers chosen at last June's con• vention were self-proclaimed communists.

Seniors To Take Teacher Exams




ES m


Peru State College is a testcenter for all four dates on ·ch the National Teacher Exinations will be given. Colseniors preparing to teach ool may take the exams on any of the four dates announced by the Educational Service, a non-profit, educational organi:.zation which prepares and administers this testing program. New dates for the testing of prospective teachers are: No-vember 9, 1968, February -1, April 12, and July 19, 1969. The test will be given at nearly .500 locations throughout the United States. Some colleges, including Peru te, require all seniors prering to teach to take the exinations, Results of the Naonal Teacher Examinations used by many large school ricts as one of several facrs in the selection of new teachs and by several states for rtification or licensing of teachers. On each full day of testing, prospective teachers may take the Common Examinations which measure their proional preparation and gencuitural background, and a ching Area Examination ich measures mastery of the bject they expect to teach.

Approximately 40 percent of the qualified. students in Peru State will be taking the tests November 9, mainly those graduating in January in teacher education. The Guidance Office has contacted and registered most of the students for tl\e examinations. There is no ne~­ for students to register individually as they are taken care of by the Guidance Office.

STUDENT VOICE (ACP)-The American Association of University Professors has overwhelmingly recommend ed that sludents have a larger voice in making policy, · More than 500 delegates representing the 90,000 - member organization of college and university teachers endorsed at its 54th annual meeting a statement that supports the concept of "student power." . The statement already has recei ved backing from the National Association of student Personnel Administrators, National Student Association, Association of American Colleges, National Association of Student Personnel Administrators and National Associations of Women Deans and Cunsellors.

The young people of today have a gigan· tic problem facing them if they wish to gain respect as adultso They must learn not to ask questions. They must learn not to ask: Why are we in Viet Nam? Why is the draft constitutional if the Constitution forbids in· voluntary servitude? Why are food prices higher in the ghettos? Why should it matter if my hai:i: is long? Why is America unpopular in the rest of the world? Why must we kill as a symbol of Ol}r debt to this society? Why must some of us die? Paul Walters said, in seconding the nomination of Harold Stassen this year, "o o o the greatest guilt in this life is to die without good reason. u To be an adult you must accept death for no reason at all. The young of this generation were raised in something other than the depression and find it hard to believe in the all-important money motivation. They have never seen a cause that was limited to nationalism. They see a cause that makes nationalism indecentp hu· man . dignity. The y9ung today are trying to be heard because they have the will to be heard, a thing almost non-existant in those who are already accepteq as adults. The password of our society seems to be that respect is due only to tho'se with whom you agree. The young must realize that resepct will be granted only with unawareness and apathy. Young people (that1 s us) can work their way to respected adulthood through maturation (coercion). We must learn to be oblivious be· fore we will be granted entrance to its trea· sured circle of adulthood. Why can't an adult return the ability to disbelieve? DON DODGE

It was a close game all the way and the home fans on hand were delighted with the showing the Bobcats made despite the narrow lose,

CHADRQN OPENS SCORING In the first quarter Peru State received the ball and started oo their own 15 as Kirk Talley return the kick. The Bobcats were able to move to mid-field but that was all as a big 4th and 20 faced them and Bob Greg· ory punted. Chadron's Kevin Kirwan took the punt on his own 23 and burst down the far side line for a 77 yard TD, Larry Gold converted and the Eagles lead 7-0 with 10:05 remaining. Peru received the kick-off but was unable to maintain posses. sion and were forced to punt. · Chadron seemed to be on their way to another score but a fumble on the Peru 25 gave the Bobcats another chance. Peru's offense again had trouble and gave the ball up via a punt. The quarter ended on even terms but Peru's defense came up with some big plays as on two con• secutive downs, with 2:30 left, the .Chadron quarterback Mike Winchell was dumped, first for 11 yards from the Peru 40, then for a 13 yard loss to 1he Chad· ron 36.

LONG BOMBS THE RULEThese fine defensive plays lead indirectly to Peru's first score as it put Chadron deep in their om territory and they weren't able to recover. Peru's first real break came with 10:37 left in the second stanza, Eagle quarterback Winchell faded back to pass and as his arm came for-

An early break in the third stanza put Chadron ahead to stay. Chadron received the kickoff and started on the Peru 39 but the stiff Peru defense picked off an Eagle pass at the 30 yard line. Unable to move Gregory lined up to punt on fourth down but the snap was wide. and low and Chadron downed him at the 19 before he could recover. From there Chadroo neede:d ooly five plays to score as fullback Ken Parks smashed the final yard, Gold converted and the Eagles went ahead 21-14 with 10:32 remaining. Neither team mount· ed a serious threat the remain· der of the quarter but action was soon to pick up.

On the ensuing kick-off fresh· man Mike Dukes took the ball on his own 15 and sped around left end for an apparent TD, only to have the play nullified oo a clipping penalty. Peru was unable to score but kept Cha· dron deep in their own territory causing the Eagles to attempt a quick kick at 7:26. The kick was a wobbler and Peru took over at the 50. At this point Mike Challis came in to replace sore arm- ·Mark' Weiler as quarterback in an attempt to get a quick TD. The results couldn't have worked better as on the second play Challis hit Virgil Mitchell with a screen pass and Mitchell blasted between two Chadroo defenders and raced the distance to paydirt. Nix' s kick made it 27·21 with 6:57 remaining. Chadron put the game out of reach soon after as they capi• talize oo another break, The Bobcats deep in their own territory were forced to punt, Mike Dukes back to receive the snap watched it soar over his head and recovered at the Peru State 10. Three plays later, Gold smashed from the three for a 33-21 lead as Dan Gables kick failed. With just 49 seconds remain· ing Peru put one last effort together to the deligbt of the home fans.

Coach's Corner "We had some mental lapses that really killed us," Coach Pitts said in reference to Chad· ron's long scoring plays in Sat• urday's homecoming 33-28 defeat. "Overall, our kids played some real gocXl football outside of the mental lapses," he con• tinued. "I was especiallypleased that we played as well as we did, playing without the services of three offensive starters and two defensive regulars." "I thought Chadron's defense was real strong, and made our offense look a little weaker. Sherwin Williams and Virgil Mitchell looked real good on their touchdowns." Turning to defense, Pitts said, "The defense wasn't bad, The only thing that looked bad was a long pass completion for a touchdown, but otherwise they

looked good.'' Pitts was dis· appointed with the punt protection, pointing out that twice Chad· ron tackled Peru's punter before he had a chance to get the ball off, and on one other oc• casion they let Chadron run back a punt for 77 yards and a touch· down.

Looking ahead to Wayne, Coach Pitts evaluated them as being "real strong defensively. I expect them to have a real well balanced team, but I think they will be stronger defensively than offensively. Sam Sin· gleton is a strong ball carrier, and as a club, they are big and strong." The injury situation is essen· tially the same this week as it was last week, according to Coach Pitts.

To be misunderstood, reject• ed, unappreciated though a gen• ius, lost in madness and despair, committed to an insane asylum-this is tragedy in a very deep sense and it is the tragedy of the life of Vincent Van Gogh, It can be read in perhaps ten minutes in a new book at the Peru State Library, Van Gogh, which contains besides the read· able brief biographical sketch, 91 color reproductions and crit· ical notes on Van Gogh's works, The paintings and the biography illumine one another.

clash of sensibilities withiri the yooth Left, The Democratic National Convention was the crucial case in point, It seems nothing has been the same since Chicago. For many, the confrontation was the climactic moment in a whole series of events beginning with the 1963 death of Jack Kennedy, This led past the dissolution of the Great Society; into an increasingly brutal war. Two assassinations and the automated nominations of Humphrey and Nixon for President brought the conclusion into focus.

Serene Evening Interrupted Nearly every student here at Peru State has heard, at least partially the story of Eliza Morgan's haunt of Morgan Hall. Of course, it almost certainly was not the same story because it varies with each telling. Each year there is at least ooe serious ghost scare at Morgan Hall, which causes a few of the more excitable residents to bar their doors and sleep with lights on. Seances are held by those staunch believers who are will· ing to brave the ridicule of others, and, many times the girts IDS!st that Eliza Morgan does indeed communicate with them during the ritual. · Some of the stories that float around are pure fantesy and a few have a minute basis in fact. The stories are so di· verse in cootext that it is dif· ficult w get any ooe straight. They r8nge from ooe telling of

a murder early in the history of the hall that keeps Eliza Morgan from her rest to ooe saying that she comes back to warn those who come in late of the error of their ways. Morgan Hall has already had its first big scare of the year, It was very vague, Most didn't even know what had brought about the scare, but soon all conversations turned to speculation s about the origin and present state of Eliza Morgan's ghost. Girls could be seen hurrying to their rooms wideeyed and fearful. Occasional screams were heard, but after a while, the girls got to sleep.

It is estimated that 50 · per cent of the jobs to be held. ten years from now do not exist today. The acceleration of his-' tory is compelling us toward rapid change. The "advance of science," the writerGeraldPiel claims, "allows no time for evolution." These are revolutionary decades.

From Berkely to Harvard, from policy statements t.o considerations of automation and technology, from the military aspect to problems of population, this anthology embarks on those troubled seas of thought and in so doing contributes to the lighting of that t.orch.

Neal" ly 52 minutes of the game was scoreless but both t.eams had ample opportunity to cas!Hn. The first half saw both teams get two breaks apiece rut neith-· er side could capitalize. Peru received the first two as the Bobcats were beld oo their own 38 and were forced to punt.Earl Johnson punted and as the ball came down it bounced into a Wayne blocker at the Wildcat 38 and Peru recovered to main· tain cootrol of the ball. Three plays netted eight yards and Peru went with a fourth and two at the Wayne 30 ooly to have Virgil Mitchell stopped short of the 1st down. The secood opportunity presented itself when Mike Dukes intercepted a Chuck Trickler pass at the Peru 44 and returned it to the Wayne 45. Things bogged down again for the Bobcats and they gave up the ball. After giving Peru two breaks Wayne was the recipient of two of its own. The first was very much like the ooe P.eru had ex· perienced. A Wayne punt in •the secood period took a crazy bounce and hit a Peru block· f er. Wayne recovered and mov· ed to the Peru 41 before the . Bobcats defense held, On the following play, a Mark Weiler

In summlrig- up tlie injury sit.. uation, Pitts remarked "Out of our starting 22 players (cl· fensive and defensivr;) we have eight who cannot even suit up for our final game.

The word "dialogue" is getting to be old hat and "communication" is perhaps even more overused, but both these words are attempts to· describe in sophisticated terms what it is of im. portance that hiippens over a cup of coffee. And an integral part of the college community is its coffee-house or meeting placeat Peru, the Bob Inn. Time spent at the Bob Inn varies from student to student and from professor to professor. If the conversation is good, one Peru professor claims he extends his usual 15 minutes at the Inn to an hour. A few students spent 3 or 4 hours a

day there while many students never get there at all, among them commuters and those who schedules continue without a break. Personnel at the Bob Inn estimate that they serve nearly 150 cups of coffee daily and that many soft drinks. They sell perhaps 40 hamburgers a day and three or more trays of sandwiches. If these figures represent the use of the Bob Inn it would seem that relatively few -even less than one-third •- of Peru's student body make use of the Inn. For want of ~ better term, what they are missing is "dialogue" and "communication,"

Electronic Aids for Students The Kresge Library at Oakland University makes extensive electronic audio-visual aids for its students. This library serves 1800 day students and 1500 night students in an attractive modern building which houses 52,000 volum.~s. Aerials or "learning loops" as they are sometimes called, were installed in those rooms which were to be used as training centers, attached to a transmitter, which in effect, made a small broadcasting station. An ordinary tape recorder plugged in to provide material. The whole broadcasting unit was installed in a few hours and included no large installation expense, and, as it was noted later, no expensive maintenance. Individual headsets were provided for students to check out. These functioned as battery-powered receivers anywhere within · range of the loop. The headsets left the students free to wander wherever they wished in the library. An elaborate b.!dget is not · required in the use of this type of teaching aid, The broadcasting station set up in the Kresge Library costs only $300 complete and the headsets are purchased for only $77 a piece, An expenditure of this nature could easily be worked into the budget of a small school. The unit .was installeq as an experiment in January of 1965 and has become nearly indispensible to all departments.


The Music Department was the nrst to see the applicab~W.Y of the stystem. Listening assign.:. ments were difficult to schedule on a class basis and it · was nearly impossible to make up missed work, but with the library playback unit, any student who wished could go and hear the score for an assignment at his leisure. The English Departm11nt now makes more use of the drama and literary recording because they are much more accessible to the students. Aprofessor who, for somli reason, cannot make regular class, can record his lecture and the class members can come and hear it in their spare time. One of the m:ist ingenious uses for this system was devised by the Political Science Department, This department holds an orientation period for its students to show them the tremendous amount of useful resources in the Kresge Library. The headsets leave them free to roam and so they can be directed to any stack that is important to the Political Science course. The p)tentialities of this and other systems seem t.o be unlimited. The cost of tape preparation and updating tape is minimal compared to the cost of film, video tape, and other audio;.visual articles. Perhaps someday all schools will employ some type of electronic audio-visual aid.

The student Center Board had a supper meeting on Thursday, O~tober 31. .. After an.enjoyable meal, and the miriutesoftheprevious meeting read and accepted First on the agenda of the Board was the appointment of a com· plaints committee. Appointed to this committee were Wayne Willcoxon (chairman), Donald Dodge, Robert Beran, and Sally Weber. Other matters, includQ ing SCB sponsored activities, were dis~ussed, and will be reported at a later date.

Notice to Students Beginning Wednesday, November 13, members of the Student Center Board will supervise the supper mealtime proceduredress, line-bucking, food waste, etc. All students are to ·comply to any suggestion given to them by a SCB member, or face the SCB Judiciary Board with apos· sible social probation being accessed to the students who do not comply. Any student who fails to appear before the SCB Judiciary Board will automatically answer to the SGA Judiciary Board or the Administration.

New Coke Machine Mr Hunter asked the Student Center Board to inform the student body of Peru that a Coke machine will soon be placed in the cafeteria in the Student Center.

New Clock The Student Center Board has received a number of requests suggesting the placing of a clock in the cafeteria. The Board notified Mr Hunter about this request and he informed the Board that the matter is presently being taken care of, and there will be a clock in the cafea teria in a matter of two weeks.

Three Proposals Mr. Hunter, Manager for Broughto11 Food Service at Peru State CrJege, asked the Student

Answers Complaints Center Board to close off approximately one-hair of the campus cafeteria during the. final 30 minutes of mealtimes for the purpose of a more expedient and efficient method of cleaning the tables and the floor. Mr Hunter stated that by 5:30, 90 per cent of the students have eaten their meals, and that the closing off of half the dining area will in no way deter the provision of adequate seats for the remainder of the students who have not eaten, The Stu· dent Center Board agreed to support this idea on an experimental basis. Mr Hunter also stated that he wished to close the West Dining. Room at mealtime except for organizational meetings. He told theSCB that some students mistreated the room's furnish• ings, and that the room was in no way needed to accommodate the mealtime volume. The SCB agreed to this idea, as the West Dining Room was created for supper or lunch meetings of the various campus organizations. A1third suggestion made to the SCB by Mr Hunter was a change in location of the drink machin· . es in the cafeteria. He. pointed out that if the machines were taken from their present location and placed by the east wall of the cafeteria, line progression would be quickened. He stated that students could take their food t.o a table, and then go for their drink. He told the SCB that this change would not only quicken line progression, but would also deter accidents in the food line, and would also help in keeping food which the students receive warmer- this because of the speedier process, of getting through the food line. The SCB unanimously supported this suggestion.

Suggestion Considered There have been many complaints sent in or given to members of the Student Center Board, The Board has gone over all of

these and will try to solve as many as possible. It is asked, however, that if students have complaints, they should give the Board some helpful suggestions as how to solve them. One of the biggest gripes was that of having to eat cold food. Mr Hunter· feels that this is a legitimate gripe. He has already been trying to prevent it. After Thanksgiving, theStudentCenter lunchroom will probably be changed around. Salads, and other so-called cold foods will be served first. The main course, the hot food, will be served last. This is done in the Complex cafeteria. Mr Hunter also hopes to have a different type of warming tray. This, in all probability, will keep the food warmer than those now in use, Many of. the commuters complained of the Bob Inn.not opening until eight o'clock. If the Bob Inn would open up at seven in order to accommadate them, it will probably close a halihour earlier. Another alternative Mr Hunter suggested is that students be allowed to go into the. cafeteria to buy coffee and-or the breakfast being served until the Inn opens. · Prices, especially on cokes, have been loweredalready. They were 15 cents plus tax, Now, the price is 10 cents. The Bob Inn has a rule that it will not accept any more checks. This is not Mr Hunter's idea but that of the company. Mr Hunter would like all of the students to read a letter in which he received concerning this subject, It is as follows: To: Glen Hunter - 302 From: Bob Yarnall It appears from your hank deposit slips that you are cashing personal checks and-or payroll checks. Last April Ed Chapman sent a memo to all managers and supervisors which discontinued the policy of cashing checks from unit funds for anyone. This was necessiated by the large numbers of bad checks we were receiving, Please discontinue this practice at your earliest opportunity.

Editorially Speaking.. Campus Democracy Yes Tomorrow, you may be dead for believing in democracy. You may be dead for believing in the right. You may be dead because you believe in liberty. Mostly, you may be dead because you believe that democracy is an uncomfortable form of government. The great majority of our country today seems to believe that democratic ways are 'on the smooth road of comfort. That road runs straight and true. It has overpasses to miss opposing traffic. The trouble inherent in that road is that it never leads upward. It continues on the level infinitely. The road that democ· . racy takes is not level. It is not smooth. It ls twisted and rough, covered with the rocks of individual opinion. Althougb the road is winding and rocky, it leads undoubtedly upward, It progresses every time adivergentopinionisheard. Democ· racy lives on divergent opinion. If a democracy is not flexible, if it cannot .listen to a minority opinion, if it cannot make room for everyone, then it must eventually fall. We find ourselves at a point where people cannot abide divergent opinion and think that it's righ~ that they don't. They think that a democracy consists of everyone who agrees with them. They believe that we should not use the freedoms that we are supposedly fighting for. A democracy seems somewhat meaningless if you cannot use the freedom that it guarantees. Our government was formed by a bunch of long-haired radicals that we refer to today as the founding fathers. They disagreed with most everything and were persecuted by ~ conservatives of the time, the Tories. Theywanted liberty, the liberty to dissent, the liberty to belong to a minority, and the liberty to be heard. If the people of this country cannot believe in the things that they supposedly stand for, if they cannot accept liberty as the rocky road that .it is, then perhaps they don't deserve it. We must treat democracy with the respect it dese.rves and remember always thatamajority does not mean any more than conscience. Rights and right are not dependent on how many people believe in them. They exist of themselves and cannot be destroyed by inattention. We must accept the burdens of democracy as well as the advantages. Don Dodge

Your Own Opinion Pernaps one of the most talked-about of recent happenings was the marriage of Jaqueline Kennedy to 62-year-old Edward Onassis. Gossip sessions suddenly boasted juicy,· new subject matter as each self-appointed marriage expert(of which there-was an amazing abundance) predicted about a speculated upon, defended or condemned the marriag-e. Here is one area in which Americans are quite expert. We all seem to consider it' our duty to pass along our opinions about other people's personal lives, and if that "people" happens to be well known, as in the case of Jackie Kennedy, so much the better. People were saying, "What a disaster! She could have done so much better." Or, on the other extreme, "I think its great. Think of all that lovely money the children will have!" What real difference should it make to us? It just might pay us to devote more attention to our own affairs, thus leaving us less _time to pass judgement on the personal decisions of others. ..

Board of Trustees decided to do it as "sanely" as possible with a six point policy suggested by the presi®nt of Consolidated University, The poliCies are fair to the university and the state alike. They insure academic freedom on the one hand and protect the state from having the university become a center of command for the state on the other hand. The new policy assures that anybody can speak on campus as long as he comes at the in· vitation of a legitimate campus group. This guarantees students and faculty members the freedom to bring in any speaker they please, while safegqarding the university from -having a radical speaker downgrade the "'s~te. ,

Kearney traveled to Chadron to meet theEagles of Chadron in a showdown of the co-leaders in the NCC and all but trampled the previously unbeaten birds into the gridiron as they came out on the long end of the score 52-20. Kearney (4-2 going into the game) and Chadron (7-0) had downed all otherconferencefoes leading up to the crucial game. The victory gave Kearney the championship for the second year in a row. Kearney took command early and was never challenged.Kearney's first score came on a 30-yard field goal by Laverne Troudt who also added a 7 for 7 PAT performance to the Antelope scoring parade. Rich Osentowski ran 13 yards for another 1st period tally and Bob Buller a 6-yarder before Chadron cracked the board oo a 3-yard burst by powerful Larry Gold, Kearney leading 17-6 at halftime exploded for 21 points in the 3rd stanza to put the game out of reach.

The Beatles in "Yellow Submarine," starring Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, is a King Features Production presented by Apple Films and produced by Al Brodax for United Artists release. George Dunning direc_ted and Heinz Edelmann designed the film.

Professor Screenwriter for Beatles literature, blending them with current satire to form a "modOdyssey," Them~in characters appear as Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, roles played by the Beatles. "Yellow Submarine" has proved to be a starting paint for Segal' s career as a screenwriter. Among the plays and m:ivies he has authored are these: "In Somi~one Else's Sandals," "You Can't Get There From Here," and "The Landlord." His lyrics were accepted by the Beatles for their film song, "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," Segal thinks that this "sideline'' may actually improve his work as a scholar. And, he says, "If I had to choose one classical backgro'.l!ld, He used life or the other it would be m;rthology, Greek and Roman the university."

The major leagues should give a special citation for the comeback player of the sixties. Tricky Dick found out the best things in life are usually last. Nlxoo -is earnest when he says, that he will cut a great deal of fedel'" al spending, They now plan only a small bridal receptioo in the White House, donations are needed so to those who contribute five dollars or more, they will receive a piece of cake. Humphrey will probably be sellinl! his reserved stock of Truman buttons during the inauguration. There's one born every minute and most of them . will be there. Humphrey's next political adventure will be his running for mayor of Chicago, Mr Daley will then resume his .old job, after taking a course on political science. That rriad meadow lark from Alabama must have chocked on too many homony grits, because he did even finish with a good· orotest. , The political race wasn't the

only feeling of animosity -displayed during the election. In fact, the coverage would take a wide lead in the entertainment if viewed in a wide scope. A.B.C., N.B.C., and C.B.s. finished in that order so far as predicting national elections in the states. A,B,C. had the most active and accurate editor in Bill Lawrence, especially when he was shooting down the Hal'" ris and Gallop polls saying, Harris overrated Nixon or Gallop underrated Humphrey. One interesting aspect from A,B,C. was their ability to concede un~mportant states fifteen minutes in advance of N.B.C. also the important states five minutes ahead of N.B.C. As for C.B.S., well nine hours after all the poles were closed in the continent of the United States C.B.S. was still standing firm that it was too early to tell anything, except that we had three candidates instead of the usual two.

quarters in New York, after the victory celebration at three A,M., one man locked himself in the restroom of the lobby and started shouting, "Now we gott'a get those damn com· munists." Obviously for good old party loyalty, but one might wonder why in the restroom? It's the ill conceived feelings of most people, after a twelve hour horse race. If the computer is supposed to be any more effective it hasn't been proven yet. What happened in Dallas this year or Los Angeles in 64, or Chi· cago in 60? It is not to be presumptuous to say that as the computer goes, so goes the state, sooner or later, to the usual growing agony of the late morning hours. Add this to the almost unforgivable sin of running five different commercials around twenty times in a twelve hour span and it becomes very abnegated to the viewer. If all this seems like a bad dream, that's because it is.

There was a surprising amount of spirit shown at the Weclnesday night game between the Peru State varsity· and second team, both by the team members and the spectators. However, very little of it was the kind that a school wants by or for its teams. The prevalent spirit of the crowd. and players was that of animosity.

Letters to the Editor

Speak Out presidents. With the Democrats entrenched in Congress, Mr Nixon can be expected to have problems getting his programs passed. Nixon's strong desire for consensus may produce some type of coalition of the center or right center in Congresspossibly a fusion of Republicans with some of the Southern Democrats. There has been such an unorganized alliance in past Congresses and it has been capable of producing majorities at times Maybe we will even see a bipartisan cabinet." "Prominent Democrats, including Mr Humphrey, have indicated they will not obstruct those parts of Nixon's program which are acceptable to them, Nixon's knack for antagonizing Democrats has ceased to be an asset, However, Nixon will have the backing of American tradition which causes Americans to accept the decision of the voters and to close ranks following elections, A close election usually leads to revolution or disorder in less mature democracies particularly those to our south. We are a mature democracy and most of us recognize that it is in the interests of all of us to have effective government, ·irrespective of which political party pro· duces such posture, All, except the most violent partisans, wish Mr Nixon well," "The ele.ction of November 5 may have administered a setback to the noHoo that charisma is an essential political q~lU:ication in this day of campaigqmg by television, Neither Nixon nor Humphrey can be accused of Possessing charisma -nor for that matter, can Wallace." "The Wallace threat, the real unknown factor in the election really did not develop, Th~ election may have demonstrated tha! "".allace was a regional peculiarity; not a national phenomenon, He i:arried only five southern states and his percentage of the total vote was less than 15 percent. Maybe we can conclude that the voters prefer political center. However George Wal1ace ran much bet~ ter than recent third;;>arty candidates Strom Thummond and Henry Wallace, It is possible however, that the George Wal: lace candidacy was a factor in turning out an unusually large Black vote in certain areas " .

The juniors and seniors overran the freshman and sophomores in their Powder .Puff Game Halloween night 6-0, The game began with the juniors and seniors, "The Great Pumpkins" winning the toss. They chose'to receive, whilethefreshmen and sophomores chose to defend the north goal. Playing as for the upperclassmen was Iva Jean Eir· sman, while Sandy Clements played for the underclassmen. From the very beginning it was the Pumpkins' size and strong bl.eking power that kept the speedy underclass-men scoreless. Jan Duensing made quite a bit of yardage for the junior and senior team as she bolted through the underclassmen's defensive line.

It was defensive end, Bev Rawlings, a junior, who scored for the upperclassmen in the second quarter. Quarterback Sandy Clements attempted a pass to Colleen DeKoning, while Bev in· tercepted the pass and ran for a winning touchdown. "The Great Pumpkins" ran for the extra paint, rut it was no good, so at half-time the score was still 6-0. The second half both teams proved to be tough, each holding its own, Team members became fired up and there were a few injuries; Most of the injuries consisted of a few rumps and bruises and possibly a little rigormortis the following day.

I would conjecture that the Democrats were hurt · more by dissidents who stayed · away from the polls than were the Republicans. However, that party still retains its old coali· tion of labor, the low-income, certain intellectuals, the minority groups, strength in the East, , added to other traditional back· ers of the party. It seems to have upcoming leaders in Muskie, Ted Kennedy,orothers. The 1964 Republican obituaries proved to be premature. The Republicans looked dead after the 1964 election, but they came back in mid-term 1966 and in presidential-year 1958.. Mr. Goldwater even goes back to the Senate after a victory in Ari· zona oo Nov. 5. Wallace's temporary annalgam in the south may evaporate and the Democrats may start winning regularly in that section a~ when present passions subside, It does not seem likely that Humphr~Y.... w!ll ... b~ . a . Dem oci:a~.c presidential candidate again, To many, he became the image of. "the machine candidate" who emerged from · the. chaotic Chicago convention. The midwest resumed its traditional role as Republican country in 1968. Mr Nixon gathered in the farm vote, the middle class, the middle-aged, the well-to-do, and the suburbanites. He programmed his campaign to influence the forgotten, middle-class taxpayer. He gobbled up the border states which Wallace had expected to carry. He did very well in the west. Nixon's coat-tails did not prove strong enough to pull Republican congressipnal candidates to victory, however. Apparently, ticket-splitting was the rule; not the exception. The Repudlican gains in the Senate and .House""\vere negligible: To illustrate, Rafferty lost in California and Hughes defeated the Republican senatorial candidate in Iowa."

"The Republicans will control most statehouses-31 to be ex· act. The Democrats will have only 19 governors." . ''We now go into a several· week interrignum until the new president takes over in January. The president-elect will usethis time to make appointments and formulate plans.

It seems logical that tile Russians will test thenewp·resident. Maybe something will .develop in Berlin or in the middle-East. Certainly· we will. have a lesspersonalized presidency during the next four years. We can expect Nixon to decentralize." "The Nixon girls will now return to college, Maybe we will have·· some more White house weddings before long." "Finally, both Mr Johnson and Mr Humphrey have expressed a desire to do college teaching, now that they are out of jobs. Their new presence at the top of the academic ladder may shove somebody off the bottomand 'it well might be, I suppose that would make me available for some federal appointment.

M. Bean Speaks at Co,nvo The relatively small crowd that attended the special convocation Thursday was rewarcJ... ed by an interesting and very informative talk by Maurice Bean of the United States Department of State. Mr Bean is a graduate of Howard University in Washington, D.C. He has done extensive foreign work in the State Department and is presently the Country Director of Malasia and Singapore. The extent of Mr Bean's talk concerned the American Foreign Aid policy, concentrating mainly on Southeast Asia. He explained that more advice on the Southeast Asian situation is offered than in any other area and that advisory panels have oeen formed to deal with this

In order to eliminate the economic and social ills of Asia, we must work "in cincert" with other countries. Following this point, several organizations have been developed including the Asian Development Bankand SEAMS (Southeast Asia Ministry Secretariat) which is devoted to meeting the educational needs of all countries. Mr Bean again stressed that, "We must work in concert with other

countries. Their goals must be consonant with ours. Our goals must be interlocked." In response to the big question of why America is involved in Southeast Asia, he remarked that Americans couldn't stand by and watch 2-3 of the world population live under as adverse conditions as are now present. But he said our moti ves are not entirely idealis· tic; that there is some selfinterest motivation, such as commerce and trade. He summed it all up by sayiQg what all of us are thinking and hoping, "We must help to create a world in which all global conflicts are eliminated."

A ·sign of the Times Times are changing, and so are colleges •. Antioch College, a small school in Yellow Springs, Ohio, is the grandfather of liberal arts experimental colleges. Problems are resolved by the people involved during discussions or with the aid of a Student Personnel Committee, composed of half faculty, half students and the dean of students. There are no house mothers or proctors at Antioch, except for freshman dorms where there are upperclass advisers living. Hall units determine their own hours within dormitories and most of them vote to stay "open" 24 hours. Nobody has to be in at any given time. Although it is no more policed than other dormitories, Antioch has three coed dorms in which male and female students are separated by floors, Due to the open-<lorm system, the school has a considerable number of prowlers in the women's dormitories. Dean Janis says, ''Having men living on the first floor is reassuring, It makes the girls feel more secure." The sex life of its students is not categorized as a major problem at Antioch. Dean of Students, Will Sikes says, "When specific instances emerge that we have to deal with, they usually tum out to be personal growth problems. Sexuality is a big growth problem for everyone, so they are worked out the way we work out other things here." "Making a decision about one's sex life," Sikes says, "whether it's yours or mine or the student's is a personal thing. Originally, colleges built dorms and made rules for •••• purpose of controlling student sex behavior. I think we now have to get away from controls. We feel our legitimate taskhere is to help our students make growthilroviding. fulfilling decisions about their relationships."

Smoke Ring's Fill Gym Peru State students crowded into the gym Thursday, November 14 to enjoy listening and dancing to the music of the ·'Smoke Ring." TheSmokeRing's rendition of their own current

hit recording, "No, Not Much" was enthusiastically received, The recording artists were sponsored at Peru State by the sophomore class.

'1ntern~ Program The Di vision of Education is currently in the process of developing an experimental program of "INTERNSHIP IN TEACHER EDUCATION." The program would place the student teachers in a public school one full semester for the student teaching assignment. Although details of the program must still be completed, junior students who may be interested . in taking part in the program as seniors next year, 1969-70 should c0ntact Dr. Shelley, Head of the Division ofEducation immediately. One very interesting part of the program from the students view point is the fact that they would be paid approximately l/2 the salary of a beginning teacher for their services to the school. It would be necessary to complete two or more courses of the professional semester


during the summer prior to LlltJ "Internship". Interns. would be placed with master teachers and be given primary responsibilities for class or classes during the semester in the schools. The master teachers may have two or three "Interns" under their supervision. A very close relationship would be sought between the students preparation in college and the activities in the school. The program as currently invisioned would include five or more interns the first semester and alike number the second semester. Students would be paired with a master teacher thereby providing an "In· tern" for the same classes both first and second semester. All juniors who are interested in this program should contact Dr. Shelley immediately.

It's OK, Son,

ltlitoridHp Spedking~ Everybody WOULDN'T IT BE LOVELY?.

In the two ·years which I have attended classes at Peru, there has been only one thing that has really perplexed me. But before stating the problem, I wish it tc)i be known that the administration is undoubtedly aware of it and realizes that it exists not only in the Lan· · guage Arts Division, but in other di"\tisions also. Since my arrival at Peru, I have only wished for one thing, a building which the Language Arts Division could call its own. At the present time the English, speech, and foreign language departments are using the Fine Arts Building, the Science Building, the Administration Building, and the Education Building for class purposes. Offices for the instructors in these departments are housed in three buildings-the Fine Arts, Administration, and Education buildings. Although all the facilities on campus are closely Knit, this handicap does make many disadvantages for the Language Division or any other division affected. For myself, I can only speak for the ·Language Arts Division. If this division had its own building, the advantages would be limit· less. A very important part of education is research. With a building of its own, research facilities cfould be added which woulq much improve the caliber of students graduated from Peru, and in this way augment the reputation of the college and make it much more attractive to prospective students. Labo.fatories could be installed to supplement class work. At the present time, one class especially- Speech Correction and Development- could be greatly enhanced if there were lab facili.ties to accommodate observation of corrective measures on people with speech impediments. Last year an instructor informed me that if there were facilities for a division research library, he would gladly bring books from his personal library for research use on the part of the students, but he would not permit stu· dents to borrow his books for use at home because he could not be assured of their return. With a division library and research room, the books could be available for project work and be under supervision at the same time with little danger of misuse or loss.

Another advantage which is easilyunderrated is that of communication improvement. There are many times that a student or an instructor will spend hours to a complete day searching out another student or instructor.

A division building would also do way with the chess· game method of going to classes- hopscotching from one building to another- and it really isn't as stupid as it sounds, fight the acquisition of colds, et11 which at times like last year at Christmas can cause the dismissal of classes. Running from one warm building into cold or wet air and into another warm building is asking for those little germs.

Dick Smothers is a first-class fessional series sanctioned by car nut and his employer, CBS- the Sports Car Club of America. TV isn't too happy about it. But Dick is stubborn and committed. He races cars. Since he recei ved a racing license less than a year ago, he has competed in some 22 races. "The racing thing," says Smothers, "is simply a logical ex· tension of my life-long interest in cars. Racing is where it's happening and I wanted to be involved." He competes in a Formula B car, a single seat, open wheeled racer. So what's it like out there? "You're all alone," says Dick. "The car is long and skinny, tbe wheels are all around you; the car is tremendously controllable and the noise is incredible. It's a very exciting feeling."

A demand developed for sheer hosiery during the "Roaring Twenties." Eventually, this led to the stylish nylons in many textures and shades available to today's shoppers. The first nylons went to the market on May 15, 1940; after, they were exhibited at the New York World's Fair in 1939. Women wore hose of hlggy rayon or used leg make-up, when the embargo on silk from Japan and the use of nylon in parachutes during World War Il led to a shortage of material for stockings, Men remember the leg make-up well, because, at dances, it rubbed off on trouser legs.

Editorially Speaking

SDS Promotes Lawless Action

In 1954 the enrollment of Peru State college was 343 students. Ten years later it rose 250 percent to a total of 866. The town fi. na.ncial record for this period shows that during these . ten years the assessed value of Peru dropped by over 10,000 .dollars. In the following four · years the college grew another 50 percent in the enrollment, yet the town's assessed value rose only in the last year because of a reassessment. The · trend indicates that the student, equipped with a car, is fast turning the town into a place of bare necessities, those being gas, hamburgers, mail and money. It is evident that the growth of the college will never effect 1;!le town. It is also evident that any car on the seven· mile-stretch is bound for Peru, not passing through, meaning that no one else will effect the growth of Peru except the people of Peru The people of Peru like Peru just as it is. Therefore, when you return to Peru in forty years I believe you shall find it as it now stands. DABRIGHAM

Buzz Off The people of this country and the people of this college have stagnant minds. They find it impossible to use their minds when it . is necessary. Think, to them, implies regurgitate. The American Public is incapable of original thought. The television has taken the place of the cerebrum. Walk around the campus and ·see how great a percentage of those you meet hold opinions that belong to Cronkite, Huntley-Brinkley, or Lawrence Harvey. If you stand up in any one of your classes and tell the rest of your class that they nol.only don't, but cari't do anything for themselves, you'll find that possibly one person will argue with you. How can a college class be held and any type of learning situation develop if the minds of the class . are nothing but a blank slate? If an instructor on this campus were to say, "John Kennedy ·was our third president,", it would go down _in al?Qut three·~ourtlJ~.-of the _note· books on this campus. About half of the notebooks_ tha~ w.smldn't be scarred yvith this would It's about time that the people of this campus said something about their feelings just to prove that they have some. The groups of this school have to use a limited number of people for of· ficers. If one of this group of not necessarily qualified people doesn't belong to your organization, the club will probably be inactive. If the people of this campus cannot learn how to think, if they cannot find something worthwhile to complain about, if they cannot find more than a few qualified people to lead them, then I don't think anybody should give a damn what they want. Do you really think the administration of this college is going to give consideration to the opinions of a bunch of orangutans? If you can't wake up and think, don't waste the time of people who might be thinking of something worthwhile. DON DQDGE

Peru Staters Being Left Out The excitement of Christmas is being felt everywhe~ certain Peru Staters are being left out. What ever happened to the old· fashioned Christmas? Some of our dorms are not being allowed to have real Christmas trees in their rooms. What should be fair for one should be fair for all, Some of these donn residents, not knowing of the new rule, had

already purchased- real Christ· mas trees. Artificial trees are quite expensive and also don't have a fragrant smell like a real fir or pine tree does. If each resident agrees to dis". pose or their tree ·before going home on vacation and cleans up the pine needles on the floors and carpets, then I see no rea· son for not allowing real Christ· mas trees. They are the ones that will be held respon~ible.

The Bob~ts, for the second consecutive r, won the Nebraska College le crown which is the Neraska College Conference eet, the AAU meet, and the ·strict 11 Championship. According to Dr. Pilkington, e of the better team efforts s the District 11 Champion·p at Omaha's Elmwood Park.

Peru State had five runners who beat Ron Bork of Midland, the 1968 Tristate Conference individual champion. This team effort produced the most decisive vic· tory for Peru state in any 1968 major meet. The scoring was as follows: Peru-26; Wayne-59, Kearney-63, and UN-0-81. Dr. Pilkington commentedthat "Jack Wyers' 24:12 5-mile time in the NAIA National Meet was probably the most outstanding effort produced by a Nebraska College runner in ··the histon' of the NAIA meet. T!!!s effort resulted in a 7th place finish for Wyers (7 places bet• ter than his 1967 performance) This individual performance will give Wyers a second straight berth on the NAlA All-Amercan Cross-Country Team." Commenting on the rest of the Peru performances in the NAIA National meet. ·PilJdllgtoo said, "Van Allen had a very creditable time of 25:46 for 49th position and Dave Harris clocked a 25:55 for 59th place.

Of the six runners who defeated Weyers in the Nationals, Coach Pilkington observed that "Two were members of the Olympic teams and a third spent the weeks prior to the Olympics in the United States Olympic camp." Reflecting on Peru's success the past several years, Pilking.ton noted "This season, in which the Bobcats were undefeated in all meets except the Nationals, gives Peru a 6-year record <:i 140 victories and 17 losses."

The Peru S~te Bobcats were left with the scraps for Thanksgiving Day as the hot shooting Cavaliers from St. Mary of the Plains College, Dodge City,Kansas, took home the "Turkey" with an impressive 194-75 vietory, in the championship game of the three-day McPhersonJaycee Tournament, Nov. 27.

Gallery for Books Potpourri One of several books on Willa Cather published recwtly bythe University of Nebraska Press and added last month to the Peru Library is "Music in Willa Cather's Fictioo" by Richard Giannone. A project of the University of Nebraska Press has been to gather, edit, and print Willa cather's early Writing, her criticism as well as her fiction. And, along with these books ·in the series, is this study on the theme of music in Cather's works. Because Cather's fame rests strongly on her protrayal of the pioneer, literary criticism, to some extent, has neglected her other dominant the1he, the aspiring artist, It is the struggle-both of the pioneer and of the artist- that to Cather is heroic. Not only is music imPortant · symbol in all of her fiction, Cather "defines personality through voice," and she "defines a moral atmosphere through musi~." This is thefirstthoroughstudy of Cather's use of the symbol of music and it is a good one, Another new book worth noticing is "Dialogu~ with Mothers" by Bruno Bettelheim, professor in the DepartmentsofEducation, Psychology, and Psychiatry at the University of Chicago, Bettelheim offers help for parents of normal children on their day-to-day problems, insisting that parents are trUstrated by those books on child guidance which neither fit their child nor their particular problem.

A long time ago, when the world first began, Adam and Eve were invited to a party. Even knew she would need an extra fig leaf, and some berries to crush and color her lips, and - oh yes, a badger's paw to comb her hair. But how could she possibly carry , all this plus some filmy spider's webs to blow her nose, a boxelder leaf to file her nails, and Polished rock to look at her reflection in? She would have her hands full helping Adam name all the animals. God looked down uponEve in her dilemma and said, "Put your trust in me, Child. I will give you a leather sack to put yourthings in, and we will call it a purs!!. No more will woman suffer the counting of numerous articles every she leaves her domain. She can take her boudoir with her." And God looked down upon His creation and saw that it was good. And ever . since then, woman has not had to count numerous articles every she leaves her domain. She must merely search through the maze of the compartmentalized objects in her purse to find the one small item she wants - like her apartment key. Woman has not changed, but her accessories have Figleaves are long out of date,.:· Those berries are now compressed into a small easy-to-operate tube of lipstick. Rnoivs what Eve used, anyWay?)

Who Has. More Fun?

Probably one of the mostasked questions of recent years nei..t to "Why are we in Vietnam?" of course, would be "Is it true blondes have more fun?" Being myself a brunette, I was at first astounded and an noyed at such discriminati and attention, Wt also being a female I was curious and deci ed to explore this timely ques tion. First of all, I asked myse why, if the statement were true would blondes hame MORE than the average dark-complect ed person? After some deli eration I concluded that sine blondes are fewer in quantit there's a greater demand, Also, for this reason they m consider themselves a specia breed and therefore attempt be more fun-loving, gay an carefree; more or less tr · to live up to their golden ima and obligation as a member the "elite" fairhaired.

Testing for Higher Learning (ACP) - Chronicle of Higher Education. The College Entrance Examination Board appears ready to concede that its admissions testing program is · geared primarily to serving institutions of higher educatioo and that, as a result, a kind of imbalance exists between this service and the individual needs of students who want to continue their education beyond high school. But the board does not seem prepared to make any radical departures in its basic program of aptitude and achievement tests, Its emphasis more likely will be on offering additional services to help students make more enlightened judgments about themselves and the educational institutions they might

attend. That was the impressioo left at the board's annual meeting here by its president, Richard Pearson and by the chairman and vice chairnian of its commission oo tests. The 21-member commission was appointed early in 1967 to conduct a "broad review" of the theory and practice of the College Board's testing program. It was charged with gathering . "evidence of the need for Nevertheless, in his annual report to the College Board, Mr Pearson gave a persooal assessment of where the commission may go. His remarks hinted at a possible framework for resolving the present impasse within the commission,

Governing Board of State College Meet The governing board of state colleges at its December 9 meeting accepted the bid of the Metropolitan Stage Equipment Co. of Omaha for furnishing equipment and furnishings for the stage of the Peru State College auditorium in the total amount of $16,775, The contract award was for furnishing and installing theater-type draping and lighting including front curtain and valance, olio curtain; a complete set of cyclorama setting, 5 new counterweight riggings and rehabilitation of existing rigging, a complete dimmer panel coosole, houselight and stage light systems, auxiliary stage light circuits, a complete port spotlight batten, two stage lighting battens, ten fresnal spotlights, eight floodlights and six Lekolites plus minor items to assure a first - class stage setting for many types of productions. Installation of this equipment is scheduled for mid-February and if completed at that time should assure full use of the auditorium by March 1, 1969. The board al so approved a call for bids on equipment for the science hall addition. Award of a contract or determination of the type of built-in equipment is essential before final plans and specifications for the science hall addition itself can be completed. Each supplier of laboratory equipment has a dif-

ferent requirement of hook-upto utilities and space utilizatioo thus the architect must know the equipment to be used to assure proper descriptions in general plans and specifications. Equipment bids will be opened sooo after the first of the year. It is hoped final plans can be completed by February 1 with a construction contract awarded by \larch 1 with the addition ready for occupancy by the beginning of the secood semester of the 1969-70 academic year. The Quiz Graphic Arts Co., Ord, Nebraska, was awarded the contract for printing 6,500 copies of the 1969-70 college catalog. Routine approval was given to President Gomon's report on first semester enrollment, residence halls occupancy, fiscal operation and faculty load reports. At an informal dinner Sunday evening, December 8, E, Albin Larson, secretary ofthegoveming board, was hooored for the completion of 25 years of service to the board. Mr Larson is a 1933 graduate of Peru State College. Attending the dinner from Peru were Dr. Neal s. Gomon, president, Lawrence' A. Ebner, business manager and A.V. Larson, emeritus professor of Industrial Arts. A.V.Larson and E. Albin Larson are cousins.

Editorially Speaking To Be Or Not To Be Sines the beginning of colleges, there has placed an excessive burden on Administrators and faculty alike - tho policy of "in locis parentis." Jn . recent years college students have brought about an awareness that this policy is not only undesirable for the most part, but is unwanted by the majority of college students. .On our own campus, one aspect of "in locis parentis" is falling under heavy criticism from many students. This is the policy of many instructors concerning class absences. It is rumored that several instructors are trying to adopt a policy whereby any student who has five or more absences in any course would fail that course. In the past two years

we have seen a policy where one grade point was deducted for every two absences, and a policy where absences had to be excused by one of the deans. Nei· ther of these policies seems to have been effective as they have both been abandoned. This further searching of the faculty to find a way to get students to class will also fail for a very siinple reason. No threat will suffice to make a student go to a class unless he is interested in that course. It would seem then, that the best way to make students attend a class is by making that class interesting enough to attend. Instructors should set their goals for high professional skills - not greater threats. Larry E. Sorensen

Nineteen or Never The youth of today are not the same as yesterday. Words tend to incriminate people by fonning them into stereotype extremist groups. Words of this nature, however become impaired the minute meaning is formed. Beatnick is an old and common description of a person adventuring into the unreality on his own behalf. This word, however, employs its self-destruct fuse when it becomes defined, so a "beatnick" exists only in the word and not in the definition. The words "hippie" and "yippie" share a similar distinction, but t"~se words are printed as a ste, Jtype for most people of college age. What people tend to forget is that the word has no ruling dominance over everyone, only the individual. It is foolish, and you've heard this before, to chastise everyone because of a handful. To a great number of young people being a leftist is undesirable. Semantics? No, just one big reason for letting most people decide what they want. From Berkeley to Columbia is a great distance, and here's Peru with its' fellow state col· leges, yeah! Even we have been tagged as delinquents by the actions of these two giant col· Jeges, and similar ones, es· pecially by the unicameral. There have been only minor problems in the state colleges most of them necessary, to disturb the "Sky Pilots" of the

playing "Jumping Jack Flash" by helping cut down the bean pole which the second amendment was preceding down? This is an obviously unanswered question to which very little will be discovered. Did the unicameral acquire a Terry Carpenter personality, especially in the light of its almost passing? Why didn't it pass on election night? A great number of the voters were under age when similiar legislation ~s proposed, so they should know just how badly most young people want the vote. Where were they on election night; at the polls or at the television, when we needed their support, There is very little that can be done from the underage group, or it appear. ed that way, to help their own cause. There are obviously a lot of unanswered questions that need to be answered to explain the failure of his amendment when a large majority of the other amendments were so generously passed, if it holds true about the apparent lack of knowledge by the average citizen on election night. There's a new sun rising up and it isn't over Japan. · · Nineteen or Never, Greg Vaughn

(ACP) - Chronicle of Higher Education, If the bombing halt in Vietnam leads to an end of the war there, the principal cause of student protest in this country will have been removed. A nationwide survey by Educational Testing Service showed that the war now ranks firstahead of dormitory regulations and civil rights issues -in causing unrest among students. The survey showed that dur· ing the 1967-68 academic year, protests. directed at American policy on Vietnam were reported by 38 percent of the responding institutions, while dormitory regulations were said to have caused prote!itS at 34 percent of the institutions. In contrast, ci vi! rights is· sues, which a few years ago were by far the leading cause of· student demonstrations, last year dropped to third place-accounting for protests at 29 percent .of the institutions. ,

1- Christmas Message The morchants' drive to rid November of its hindering Thanksgiving has of late tapered off. For in the wake of a commercialized floor it has been buried in Yule decor by a rich American population eager to spend its annual forty billion Christmas dollars. How sick I feel with the advertising parade all around and seeing the merchant's mutation, "Xmas", While these mechanized men steal Christmas, the meek men of religion still pathetically fight the tinsel by a nostalgic connection with the quaint but failing nativity scene.

Putting Christ Into Christmas Christ cannot be put into Christmas by those who do not believe in Him; -putting Christ into Christmas is a challenge only to Christians. For nonChristians a superficial and sentimental ackhowledgment of a baby Jesus dishonors this very Christ Ch:Jd who, for Christians, is God become man and born to fulfill a m;ssion of redemption. But the observance of Christma;; as a holiday has reached proportions larger than the church. Christmas belongs to the world now. In this respect it parallels the observance of Sunday where religious custom prevails in "secular society." The joys of Christmas are not limited. Christians do not begrudge the celebration of Christmas byallofsociety.Gifts given in love and friendship, happiness for children, beauty in decorations, music that cannot be matched, letters of kind rememberance and greeting, family gatherings - these joys are the joys of Christm1s that belong to all. Nor do Chrfstians hold an attitude of superiority about THEffi celebration. Christians do not claim Christmas as their gift to the world. Surely, it is God's - whose might and power cannot be contained and whose desires is for good things for all people,

ATS SHINE IN DEBUT Bobcats,, Rip-Zip to Home Victory By DA VE DAVISON The Peru State Bobcats, after smarting from two consecutive road losses, returned home for a four-game home stand and reel·ed off three straight wins to raise their season mark to 5-2, (Sports Editors note: the fourth game of the series, Peru vs. Huron College of S,D .. , was played after printing time and was unable to be included in this report,) The Bobcats thur far have shown an enormous improvement in bench strength and rebounding power. The play of three new-comers to the cage scene this season: CarrollJohn· son, Bob Morton, and Dave Bierbaum has aided Coach Mcintire in spelling his starters without losing much effectiveness.

Edged 83- 80

The first game in the Cat home stand was played Saturday, Dec. 7, against the tough Bearcats of Northwest Missouri State. The Bobcats held a 4533 halftime lead but had to rely on their rebounding strength in the second half to s@eak out a close 83-80 win. Strong dominance of the boards was evident in the 65-39 margin Peru held. After Peru breezed to a 16 point lead early in the second half, the Bearcats made their come-back behind the charge of Pat Donovan, the game high scorer with 19. The Bearcats and the Bobcats clawed it out on nearly even terms the second half b~ the big lead Peru had built up was too much to overcome, even though it was cut to a little as four points near the end, Donovan's jumper at the buzzer cut it to the final three point margin.

The Bobcats two most potent ingredients were mixed well in the victory as five PSC players connected for double figures and the big rehounding edge was ac-

Now that the college football ason is ended a few select s are looking forward to post season bowl appeares. These bowl games do · things, first the winning m gains national prestige, secondly all schools parcipating and their respective nferences gain financial benets. My predictions for the holiay bowl games are based on orough study of teams and eir respective conference and es and are wholly my own.

Zero's predictions: Missouri will face Alabama in the Gator Bowl. This should be an interesting game because both teams must depend on their stout defense. Alabama's of· fense has shown it can't move the ball when it should and Missouri doesn't have a super star quarterback who can move the team. Look for Missouri to pull this one out of the hat, but by a slim margin, 14-13 . The Bluebonnet Bowl will feature two high scoring teams, Oklahoma and Southern Metho-


dist University, The Sooners rely on the running of their sensational tailback, Steve Owens while SMU relies on the passing of Chuck Hixon and the running of Mike Richardson.Oklahoma, with their diversified offense should be able to defeat SMU in the high scoring game, 39.28. The Orange Bowl has long been noted for it's brilliant halftime shows, but this year it may be remembered for the fireworks of Penn State and the University of Kansas, Rock Chalk Jayhawk: has been heard throughout the midlands this football season, While back east Penn State rooters continue to say that their Nittany Lions are No. 1 and they could be.

A Cool Jerk class and a final win by either the Studs or Stingers would result in a play-Qff game for the championship. If both the Stingers and Studs win with a Cook Jerk loss it would be a three team play-off. A Cool Jerk win would clench the championship. Intramural basketball will start Monday, December 16,

Santa's Dead Ca/eMlr Who Said 7 Who said Santa Claus doesn't exist? Well, doo't believe them. If you want to believe in the spirit of giving, which the figure of Santa Claus represents, then go ahead. And Santa Claus will exist in your heart and be exemplified in your actions, In analyzing the traditional conception of Santa, one comes up with the mental picture of a fat, jolly old gentleman who has time for everybody. Maybe he even looks .like Grandpa. But, kids are getting too smart, now. They know where those gifts under the tree come from. Thus, they miss the real gift Santa brings them. Mucq has been said about commercialized Christmases, but how often have you heard anyone mention leaving the spirit of Santa out of Christmas? So, all you kids, get together and show .the older generation that Santa is not dead. He lives! And he doesn't Jive just at Christmas, he lives the whole year round. Creating and reviving the old spirit of Santa for your personal benefit may be one of the most rewarding experiences you enjoy - and employ.

Diet Did you know ••••• A masterpiece of advertising, the so-called drinking man's diet is a masterpiece of de-· ceit for the would-be weight loser. Alcohol in almost unlimited quantities is permitted, as a part of the low carbohydrate system of dieting, but the diet restricts carbohydrates, not calories,


Dr. Phillip White, Director of the Missouri Health Association, says "Protein, fat, carbohydrates and alcohol all contribute calories, and the only la sting way to lose pounds is to reduce the total caloric intake from all these sources."

Perhaps the worst feature of· the diet is that it could be damaging to nutritional well-being if observed for very Jong. Dr. White blamed both reputable manufacturers andhealthquacks for the American public's confusion over nutrition.


At Peru State there are organizations for students, faculty, faculty women - so it had to come, an organization for secretarial-clerical workers. A group met October 7 and elected officer: Mrs Gnade, president; Mrs Stephens, vice-president in charge of programs; Mrs Giesecke, secretary-treasurer. At a meeting November 18 a constitution was adopted stating the purpose of the organization is to emphasize good relations with employees, fellow workers, faculty and students. This is an organization for anyone who works in a college office. If student office workers are interested, they are urged to contact one of the regular s-~cretarial-clerical staff members ~d come to the meetii!gs -which are scheduled forthethird Monday of the month.

HOW TO GIVE ADVICE New York (NAPS)-Advice 1s · the one commodity almost everyone likes to give and almost nobody likes to take.

The dramatized protrait is presented in two acts, recreating many of the shattering moments in Poe's life. It includes many of his famous works, set against the background of the exact replica of the Fordham cottage, in which he lived just a few weeks before his death. Mr Minford portrays a close friend of his and takes the audience on the haunting, intimate, and revealing journey through the mind of Poe who for forty years searched for Eldorado, a dream of life that was never revealed to him.

Governing Board of State Colleges Meet semester of the 1969-70 academic year. The Quiz Graphic Arts Co.; Ord, Nebraska, was awarded the contract for printing 6,500 copies of the 1969-70 college catalog. - Routine approval was given to President Gomon's report oo first semester enrollment, resi· dence halls occupancy, fiscal operation and faculty load reoorts. At an informal dinner Sunday evening, December 8, E. Albin Larson, secretary of the governing. board, was honored for the completion of 25 years of service to the board. Mr Larson is .a 1933 graduate of Peru State College. Attending the dinner from Peru were Dr. Neal S. Gomon, president, Lawrence A. Ebner, business manager and A.V. Larson, emeritus professor of Industrial Arts. A. V. Larson and E. Albin Larson are cou• sins.

Two maps, one of the United States and one of Nebraska, are displayed on the bulletin board opposite the Office of Education. Dotted with pins, they show the cities where last year's graduates in the department of education now hold teaching positions. The graduates are identified; name tags are connected by strings to the pins. The pins show that 1968 Peru alumni have scattered over a wide area-to C:ilifornia, Nevada, Colorado and eastward, too. Most are congregated in southeast Nebraska. If you haven't already seen the display. it is worth a special visit to the education building.

Peru Debaters To Maryville· Peru State College's debate team attended its final tournam•)nt for the first semester on Dilceml>er 13-14. Making the trip to Northwest Missouri State College at Maryville were two varsity teams - Larry Sorenson, Don Dodge and Bill Austin - Diane Forke - and two novice teams - Linda KilgorCheryl Prokupec and Kathy Schnitzer - Wayne Willcoxon. In individual forensic events, the sq1ad brought home eight certificates of excellence. Those participating in forensic events were Schnitzer and Procupek, extemporaneous; Forke and Kilgore, original oratory; Dodge and Austin, oral interpretation of lite ra1llre. The varsity debaters did not fare well in the .debate col-' umns, but had the satisfaction of being beaten by the top teams of the di vision. Both of the varsity teams ended the tourna· ment with a 1-5 record. In the novice division theteam of Prokupec and Kilgore was 0-6. This was the first tournament which this team attend· ed. · The novice team of Schnit· zer and Willcoxon ganiered fourth place in the novice di· vision of the tournament with five wins and one loss. Twenty-four schools from South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska attended the tournament, and the competition was of a very high caliber.

withdraws from it. Parental permissiveness may be another reason behind aliena~ tion and apathy. Parents afraid to exert real parental authority, King said. A theory King does not agree with contends that the unres in youth is a sympton of neur ticism. "The youth are acting out of their own morbidity," he said. Television is partly respon sible for alienation, Dr. King said. After sitting in front a TV for thousands of hours, ''the youth' cannot relate to in di victuals. He has little prac tice in personal relationships." Some psychologists feel there is really nothing wrong with youth, Dr. King said. Aliena tion is an effort, dictated by s ciety's need for reform, to r cognize what is wrong, he said. Lacldng confidence in ''theEstablishment,'' students are criticizing and opposing it. They view adults, the government an university administrators as representatives and perpetrators of this "established way oflife," King said. King also says that students feel the system is so ironclad that it cannot be changed through ordinary means, Sotheybelieve in destroying the system, he said "There is a feeling of urgency about these students. The world is changing so fast thattheyfear the values their parents teach them are going to be outmoded. "Because of this, they don't take seriously the ideas of their parents," King said. He also feels the so-called "generation gap" is really a• communicatons gap. Parents listen, he says, but they don't get the right meaning.

Intramural Highlights

"We feel that after playing six games the team is beginning to jell. We're starting to play more with each· other helping one another on both offense and defense. We think our overall play has improved in general," said Head Basketball CoachJack Mcintire. "We started off playing two good ball games in the McPherson College Tournament against Sterling, Kansas, and Baker University. Then we had a little lapse and played poorly against St. Mary's of the Plains." Peru had three all-tournamentperformers at McPherson in Tom Patton, Clyde Wilkins and Pete stewart. "We played poorly at Tarkio and this, coupled with poor shooting from the field, caused us to take another defeat. We seemed to regain our shooting eye against Northwest Missouri State and Southern South Dakota. This together with improvement

In a survey entitled "Cam. pus Vlaues in Mate Selections," 566 students from four universities, including the University, were asked to rank 18 characterisitcs they seek in a mate. Chastity has declined from 10th place in 1939 to 15th in 1967. Hudson said that the decline doesn't mean that it is less important, rather, it may be that other attributes have become more meaningful since 1939.

The general reaction to the passing of 1968 is one of a deep sigh of relief and hopes that such a year never returns. It was a year of revolution, riots, and assassination. Presi· dent Johnson shocked the world by renouncing a second term, supposedly opening the way for Hubert Humphrey. As the elec· tion later disproved this theory, Richard Nixon, a "two-time loser" was elected as the next President of the United States. In connection with the election this year Chicago was the scene of riot and turmoil as the Democratic National Convention resulted in disaster. The capture of the Pueblo in January and its release in · December is still of major concern to the U. s. in '69 and the nation awaits details of this, another disastrous affair. With the capture of the Pueblo and the recent astounding flight of Apollo 8, where Earthlings first viewed themselves from their closest collllterpart, TIME magazine made the following comment, man was able to "conquer alien space but could not master his native planet." The assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert Kennedy startled America as United States' prestige declined abroad and American pridediminished at home. In France, a near-revolution by students and workers came close to toppling Charles de Gaulle in May; its economic aftermath in November certainly discrediting France's role as "power broker" of Europe. The rape of Czechoslovakia by Russia and Alexander Dubcek's liberal government brought sympathy from Americans as we realized we were not the only country in the world suffering politically.

Even the Summer Olympics in ·Mexico City was torn _apart on the eve of its opening by gun battles between soldiers and students. America and the entire world seemed to be stricken with a ''universal sick· ness" of which the cure is yet to be perfected.

This work ended this past summer when carefully prepared, written reports were made available to the four colleges. It is one thing to know what should be done, which these reports reveal; it is another to be able to do them. Conse~ently, these committees are making an effort this year to implement the program> they have recommended. This past September, the curriculum study project was expanded to include General Education, that is, those studies that should be required of every study, no matter what the field of specialization may be. The committee making this study is composed of the Deans ri the four state colleges plus ooe faculty member form each. Dean Keith Melvin and Professor Silas Summers represent Peru. Dr Leonard Paulson of Chadron is chairman. In its work, it is following somewhat the procedures of the other committees.

Early in December, the girls of Davidson-Palmer each were to decorate their doors and rooms for the Christmas season. A contest was held to judge which ones were the best.

Editori1/ly Spe11<ing January was held sacred to the Romans because the word was derived from Janus for whom the month was named. He was primarily the god of gates and doors of all beginningso January is the beginning of a New Year. A year in which you can always take time to begin over, a time to be unselfish, a time to be charitable, a time to keep on trying, a time to take advice, a time to be considerate, a time to profit by m;stakes, and a time to forgive and forget. But we must also take time to Laugh - it is the music of the soul. Take time to Think - it is the source of power. Take time to Play - it is the source of perpetual youth. Take time to Read - it is the fountain of wisdom. Take time to Pray - it is the greatest power on earth. Take time to Love and be Loved - it is a God given privilege. Take time to be Friendly · it is too short a day to be selfish. Take time to Work - it is the price of success.

S.6.A. Plans The first semester of this year has been fairly productive for the S.G.A, Even though our budget is nearly expired, the second semester can be equally productive. The first project the S.G.A. will undertake du-ring the secc ond semester will be to revise and bring to life the dormitory judiciary boards. At the present the S.G.A. judiciary board is functioning quite well; howc ever, it could function better if the dormitories could have a judiciary board of their own. This board could handle smaller problems, and would take this burden off the housemother. The second projectthes.G.A. will undertake is to rewrite it's constitution. This constitution is not only .ambiguous, but is also not updated tocurrentS.G.A. powers. It also has been noticed that the S.G.A. is not necessarily representative of all the students on this campus; therefore, the structure of the S.G.A will also be revised. One plan under consideration is to have the S.G.A. composed of: a pres· ident and vice-president elect·, ed by tlie student body, the four class presidents, the five dorm presidents, a' student Jiving off campus, and a student elected from organizations of each of the seven divisions.

This next semester can be very productive for the students on this campus, but each student must do his part to help. If you have any suggestions for change, or suggestions concern• ing any part of campus life, co>:tact a S.G.A, member. Make Peru State a better college, and help yourself to a better education.

Accordingtoex"'\ Since then, it is reported the perts at Shulton, Inc., the maksame comment has been whis- ers of a popilar line of men's pered, shreiked, bellowed, toiletries, every woman loves bandied about, moaned, groaned, to think of herself as unique mumbled and grumbled by some (like every man) and the most 27,492,859,213 males - more flattering thing you can tell her or less -to 27,492,859,213 oth- is: "Darling, you're different er males - or to nobody in from all the rest. Wonderful, particular. special and diff~rent ." In order to understand women, however, the first point to keep in mind is that they do, indeed, tend to harbor the illusion that they are people. Once a man has faced up to the fact that he must humor the female in this respect, he is ready to proceed to the first lesson. 1. How to deal with the Femine Mystique. Since women usually do tend to think they are people, it is wise to treat them as you would almost anybody else - with a few exceptions. When a woman insists that she IS a person, for instance, don't argue with her as you will never win. Instead, pretend to agree, then change the subject to something quite impersonal such as how much you love her new hairdo.

2. How to know when a woman is telling the truth. According to one legend, Hsi Ju Ying, a Chinese sage of the T'ang dynasty actually .discovered a foolproof method for this. Rumor hath it that he sold his secret to the emperor for a couple of walnut-sized rubies. Unfortunately, when theydeparted this life it was lost to posterity forever. Since then, each man has had to play it by ear. Naturally, you can't always believe a woman when she murmurs "I love you". Jn fact, several primitive tribes in Africa and South America insist on a traditional rite which puts every woman's devotion to the test. After a young couple beeu.t•.,~ engaged; they.are fore-

But when saying this you have to be cautious not to blunder into the one . thing you should NEVER tell her, according to Abu I1:n Tarif, noble chieftain of a roving band of 9th century Bedouins. Beware, he says, of saying "how much sweeter is her kiss than that of any other. For the wrath of a woman thus compared to anotheris as the wind in the desert." 4, How to woo and win a woman. Women know instinctively tbat ALL the senses play an important role in courtship and marriage - hence their generous use of perfumes, scented lotions, make-up, soft lights, sweet music, tinkling jewelry, delicately - flavored lipsticks, breath-sweeteners and skin soft· eners to snare and hold the male in that tender trap. But, don't forget that their sorceries work both ways and what is enticing to the gander is equally alluring to the goose, though many men are careless about appealing to a woman's senses. County Baldassare Castiglione' s JI Cortegiano ("The Courtier"), a 16th Centucy handbook on the art of being a gentleman, advises all men to wash and perfume their beards regularly. And, today, whether bearded or smooth-shaven, many men add "scents-appeal" to their courtship with a hearty dash of after-shave or cologne. Adding spice to it all is the increased number of masculine scents on the market,· such as

Old Spice, a major factor in the increasing popularity of cos· metics for American men.

5. How to give a gift she'll appreciate. Selecting gifts that will please a woman depends somewhat on the time andplace. Among the ancient Goths, a barrel of wine was the standard gift of a man to his fiancee, while a walrus tusk is as close to Tiffany's as any Eskimo girl ever gets, but she's grateful anyway.

But, though diamonds are reputedly a girl's best friend you Cfon't have to be a mil· lionaire when buying a present for your one and only. Accordil)g to an Indian proverb, a maiden's heart is like a magnifying glass. "It enlarges the small and sees nothing of the large." Translated this means if you want to make a big hit with a girl give her a little gift for no reason· at all, rather than a big one for an ob• vious occasion. But, by all means, stay away from candy if she's on a diet and go easy on books if she's not the brainy cype, or she might reply, like the chorus girl who received one: "But I've already got a book"! 6. How to know when she wants to be kissed. If a chick invites you up to her pad to hear her latest tape recordings .•.• you can be pretty sure she'll grab you if you don't get th~re first. When dealing with an oldfashioned type who is less aggressive, take a tip from a New York City taxi driver who's probably witnessed m o r e smooching through his reaview mirror than a Hollywood · censor sees in a lifetime of wide-screen expo$ure. · "Most kisses," he reports, "begin when, the meter reaches the 50-cent mark. That's after the girl has a chance to get settled and the guys works up the necessary nerve • For those who aren't sure when to kiss a girl, she's ready when she drops her arms to her sides. I've never seen it fail/' But probably the wisest ad· vice on the subject is contained in a Lerner-Lowe song from the musical "Camelot". Few females failed to agree when Richard Burton, who played King Arthur in the Broadway production, sang: "The way to handle a woman is to love he.r, Siinply to love her .••• .'; '"'

Our own Peru State Bobcats are indeed a contender as they o_pen conference play Tuesday (tomorrow night) against a vastly improved Kearney Antelope five. KSC started fast but have tapered off from their early season form, Hastings, last but not least has the potential behind the leadership of 6'7 Glenn ,May, an all-conference forward in '68, to go all the way. After a rocky start the Broncos are d~vel~p­ ing and will be tough to handle as the curtain goes up and the chips are down. The prediction from the Ped sports desk sees the pale blue of the PSC Bobcats in the District XI playoff if injuries to key personnel can be avoided and the Cats put an end to the jinx most teams have encountered when traveling to Chadron for conference games with the Eagles.

Instruction Advances Comparing courses ofinstruc· tion offered at P.S. C. over the years would prove to be a dif· ficult task since catalogues are available from 1870. But, the change in outlook on areas em· phasized is most apparent when one skips a period of years. In 1870, Peru was known as a State Normal School. Ladies and gents (as the catalogue refers to them) could attend school tuition-free for a cost of about $160 per year. Normal, model, and seminary were thedhisions of the Normal SchooL Courses of study for everyone were basically the following: First YearFirst term-Reading and Orthography, Mental and Written Arithmetic, Descriptive Geog· raphy, English Grammar, Penmanship, Vocal Music, READ WELL - "Page's Theory and Practice of Teaching."

Experiences Reviewed The PSEA meeting held Monday evening, January 27, was an interesting review of the studl!fit teachers' experiences. The mee_j:ing· .was conducted by the president, Barb Lampe, with Dr. Kike and Mr Johnson as sponsors. The panel of five studentteach• ers were: Jan Kelly who taught iii'the phy• sical education department at S:ienandoah, Iowa. She spoke on the emotional probleinsinvolved in teaching her students. Jan felt that the emotional problems affected the grades of these students. Martha Mullen taught eight year olds at Beatrice, Nebras• ka. Martha felt that each of her students were individuals, One chil~ mightexcelinonefield yet be lacking in another, therefore, they seemed to be different students in each class. Martha said that these students also had emotional and psychological problems. Don Shaw taught math in the Tecumseh Nebraska school system. Don spoke on the outside help high school students require. He felt that the students really appreciated talking outside of class. Don also felt that the parent-teacher conferences were good for better understanding.

Where will man go, after the moon is his? 23rd meeting of our SCB.


Of course, there are other planets, other places to race to. An entire universe is waiting to be discovered, It has waited for millions of years, It will wait for millions more, We can conquer space, we have proven that repeatedly. We can blast ourselves away from the earth, journey thousands of miles into space and return safely, We do it almost without the smallest of errors. But now, with the moon soon to be overtaken, we must stop-to think. Theworldwelive on is in an uproar. We can't get along with our neighbors, we're split with the sadness of racial conflict, we're watching others starve and die, and worst of all, we're beginning to enjoy hate. It's too bad man isn't involved in a race to conquer himself, To conquer himself with understanding-the guns, with understanding - the guns, the battles, the hatred replaced by patience, respect, consideration. Space exploration is good, Only when it becomes an obsession, a race, does its spirit tarnish. Outer space will be up there for a long time to come-forever really. But, inner space, the space 'Jside of us all, will last only as long as we do.

Questionaire Revealing What do STP, DMT, or LSD mean to you? They could be oil additives, but they are not. They are the newest rage on the college campuses of today. According to the Gallop Poll, five to six per cent of the seven million college students are drug abusers. Three hundred fifty to four hundred twenty thousand students have experimented with hallucinogens. Included in this group of drugs are non-addictive drugs such as marajuana, and psychadelic drugs as LSD, STP, and DMT. Barbituates as well as amphetamines are also classified as hallucinogentic drugs. The campus of Peru State is not an exception to this rule. A brief, representative's survey was made on our campus to determine exactly how the average student felt about the possibility of drugs at Peru. As with all cross-section polls, the returns were quite varied. Those surveyed were asked ten questions to drug usage at P.s.c. In answer to the question, "Do you believe there are drugs on our campus?" Eighty two per cent answered yes while eighteen per cent felt there were no drugs here. Theeighteenpercent also felt that drugs would eventually be found on our campus. When asked what drugs they felt could be found, their ans·.,.ers were primarily marajuana, secondly amphetamines, and third· ly barbituates. Drugs such as LSD were the., least suspected hallucinogentics. r~ferring

Fifty-five per cent of those people inter· viewed admitted to taking some kind of drug during their educational career, while forty· five per cent said they had never taken any form of illegal drug. Those questioned were also asked for an estimate student percentage of users. The answers ranged from seventyfi ve per cent to zero per cent, but the average was fourteen per cent and the mode was ten per cent. "Why do they take these drugs?" was the next question. There were three basic ans· wers. First, for a change or experiment with no definate purpose. It was called an exper· ience, curiosity, and something to try. The second answer was to feel sophisticated and be accepted by those who were taking drugs. Finally, the majority of those who were talked to felt drugs were used as an escape from reality and social pressures. An unstable person with extreme nervous tensions would be in this categury. A small portion of those consulted felt there could be some sttldents with psychological, or physical, or mental types of addiction or de· spondence with the drugs. The majority surveyed could see no justification for those taking drugs to be doing so. Others decided each person must supply his own justification, only the individual could make this decision. Nearly everyone felt some drugs should be legalized. Marajuana coulq be legalized in a pure form with few problems, however, the stronger and addictive drugs should remain outlawed. This lega~ization would remove the elements of thrill and tension. If a person wanted the drug, they could get it illegally, so it may as well be legalized. The majority of the poll said they would not try or increase their usage if_ it w~s made legal•.

· Americans, the great "fad finders", have launched themselves into a new trend~tter education. But is it really better? The American school system has gradually improved since the establishment of the Boston Public Latin School in 1835. The so-called improvements include ability grouping, modular scheduling, individualized in· struction, and teaching machines. They are intended to improve the quality of education for the intellectually gifted and bolster opportunities for disadvantaged students, With all of the superimposed improvements; however, the progress of education still lies within the student, Real education is the thirst for lmowledge now lmowledge itself. lt is an inquiring spirit, the willingness to work beyond the minimum. If you want to be really educated, you must be self-disciplined and self-educated. you will do outside readings beyond that required by an instructor: You will not be satisfied with getting by the easiest way, but you will be interested in absorbing every possible morsel that will be of value to you, It is a teacher's responsibility to help develOP this inspiration to work beYond the bare essen~ tials, People constantly stress the importance of collegeandeducation, All of this stress and emphasis is forcing people who are neither qualified nor interested in college to attend an institute of higher learning, The ultimate goal in life is to obtain a college degree, One author has called this American trend "theSheep. skin Psychoses," Colleges are filled with students who are there because it is the thing to do, Everybody goes to college, becausl;l people look up to them. It's one big game, With attitudes like this, can one truly get a real education? Are all our improvements and campaigns bettering our education?

President Nixon , · In a recent article published by the College Press Service, a counter-inaugural protest designed to keep the pressure on Nixon to ''tum our country away from the racist and Violent policies of the past" was brought to light. War has been the major issue of the political campaign with demonstrations, violent andnonviolent, dramatizing the ill feel· ing in the nation over it. So called students constantly vent their feelings against the war, and yet, elements of war are in evidence all over this country. Insurrection constantly may be noted in colleges and universities, Administration buildings are damaged, administrators are held in-lieu of more rights for students. Now, these same students would attempt to make a · mockery of the inauguration of our president. This war in Vietnam has had great emotional and political impact on this country. The rights and wrongs of this war are to numerous to mention in this short space, and I respect the right of dissent. However, I also respect the office. of the presidency, even though I may disagree with the man holding the office.

Although there are several prescribed ways of study, they are usually speciJlli zed and fitW! to one type of material. For example creative writing is not primarily memorization, and most history does not leave room for originality. Therefore ones own ·habits should fluctuate so as to meet the demands of any subject.

Most study habits are quite similar. The way in which they are applied is the difference. After defining ones own study habits it may be easier to apply them so they will be most beneficial to you.

To say that the move failed would be an understatement, Jn the interim, more problems have arisen, including the serious threat of a teachers strike, The student strike, ·which started the truble at the school began November 6 over a list of 15 demands issued by nonwhite student groups, These include the establishment of a black studies department, con· trolled by its own faculty, establishment of a school of ethnic studies the admis~on of a larger number of minority students and unlimited admission of such students in the fall.

Both sides have taken their stands and refuse to budge. There can only be more trouble if police continue to use commando tactics on picketing students. Continued reports of beatings and injury to students arouse even stronger anti-authority sentiment. The only solution would be for each side to give a little in order to come to terms. The administration must begin to zero in on the problems at hand.

moralit;y is unimportant. It is what is inside one self that is important. The older generation says "Yes, but society will not accept nor even try to find out what is 'inside' unless you conform to its basic codes, including dress and appearance." Youth says "I will create my own society!" The older generation must not hold on so tightly to the past, strangling any new methods or ideas, It is time for youth to begin again. The difference lies in the action. Youth does opening, outwardly, and. enth usiastically what the older generation attempted through conservative, patient and diplomatic means. The basic gap is not the end result strived for by young and old, the "GOOD LIFE"; the gap lies in the means and its definition, Communications must be reopened. Both. sides must be willing to communicate or the gap will grow. wider; the hysterical panic and physical animal brutality will continue. Whatever happened te that great healeF, Talk?

Common Sense Needed In Government Spending Some people say democracy cannot survive without inflation because politicians have to promise higher wages and more benefits in order to win elections. Yet, uncontrolled infla· tion can wipe out a country com· pletely, which has been proven several times since the fall of Rome. The Vietnam war, crime and lawlessness, race relations, and inflation are revealed as the top worries of the American people in recent polls. The Vietnam war remains number one on all lists, and .it holds the key to all policies and programs of this new year. Most people are hoping for an early and honorable settlement of the war, but no one sel!ms to have found a practical solution to the proble~s of ending wars or of defending foreign allies and interests. Most of us believe in providing food, education, financial aid, and mi· litary aid to the less fortunate in other countries; but most of , us reject wars, higher taxes, and .inflation. Most of us also believe in helping the less fortunate here

Razor Blades Library "The clock was nearing nine and all was quiet in the library l:asem·~nt when the crime was committed. The weapon useda razor blade. Another culprit escaped leaving no evidence of his identity, only missing pages." This scene is not fiction but a true problem we have on our campus-theft of material from our library. Crime number one is missing pages from periodical references. The criminals are students of any field, geographic area, or class standing, Some students are either too lazy to take notes, or they have no respect for property or rules These people fulfill their assignment by doing research to find material; but once they've found the location of this information, they are no longer students but thieves. Instead of taking notes · from their source, they simply cut or tear out the article, conceal it, and finish their assignment in the comfort of their dor.mitory,.


lN~1'RUc-rog.; V~l<.Y ¥13RY HAf'pY THlS NIORNIN&~'1

The students who are guilty of swiping magazines or magazine articles have no consideration for their fellow classmen or for the library. They do not realize, or care, that someone else needs the information from the pages they have stolen. This crime usually occurs in spurts; i.e., when a research assignment has been given. It is very frustrating to go to all the work of finding sources for information only to learn that it was to no avail, the article is gone. This article can't be replaced. there is no other source in which the same information can be found: It isn't fair to .the majority of students who try to. complete their lessons, but can't do it proper 1y because of a few thoughtless immature Peruvians. How this crime can be stopped is still unknown, It is not possible, nor should it be necessary, to keep a constant guard in Jhe library bC!sement.


at home. However, nanaoms are definitely not the answer! They have neither won us foreign friends nor removed our slums or stopped our riots. Although we would like to help our brothers, both at home and abroad, we realize that it is impossible and futile to try to play the role of global policeman or of global big brother. The bloodshed and wasteful· ness of wars must somehow be ended by sensible negotiations. The dangerous 4.3 percent rate of inflation and the bad balance of payments must be corrected by slowing down federal spending. Building meaningful state and national programs is one thing; empire building is@ite another. Asking for funds to do what is necessary is one thing; adding oo desirable extras is another. It is time our state and national governments start operating the same way that we as individuals and families must operate governments also should put off a few things until they can afford them. It is time to use common sense spending!

Japanese Girls More Dependent One of the differences between the United States and Japan is that girls in Japan are more dependent all their lives. Here in the U.S. girls must find a way to make their living, so some girls attend teacher's colleges, or secretarial schools, Jn Japan, girls expect that the husbands will always take care of them, so they go to cooking schools or sewing schools instead. · Since the average marriage age of Japanese girls is between 22 to 25, they might work after school as office girls or clerks, but there are not many girls who continued their jobs after their marriage, In this country when a couple marry they plan their wedding by 1hemselves, In Japan parents are much involved in the young couple's wedding. Boys are supposed to bring a traditional symbolic bethrothal gift with money to the girls' homes and to prepare a place to Ii ve. The girls' parents provide all furniture such as dresser, washing machine, T. V. set, refrigerator etc.

Mac Men Tip Tennessee --- Fall To Tarkio Jin'

By DAVE DAVISON The Peru State Bobcats found the cozy confines of the PSC gym to their liking as ~ey took 011 a rugged sharp-shooting Te~­ nes A&I team, winning their fifth straight game, 71-57 on Saturday, February 1. . The Bobcats ran head-on with ooe of the higher scoring small college basketball teams in the nation as A & I had been averaging 96' points per game. The key to the Bobcat win wa? the defensive job the Cats did on Ted McClain, Tennessee's leading scorer with a 31.3 average, wh? was .held to 18 points, combined with a 23 of 32 performance from the charity line. · The contest opened as a seesaw battle with both clubs bombing away with a great deal of . accuracy. The early going. saw the score knotted seven times and change hands six other times. The score was kno~ 25-25 with just less than 5 mm• utes remaining when Wayne Heine connected on two quick baskets to give Peru a lead they never gave up, PSC lead 30-29 at the half as McClain gunned a 40-footer just before the buzzer to bring A & I within one. Pete stewart lead the secood half charge that snowed the Tigers under. Petehittwo quick fielders to open the second half but the two squads battled on even terms for. the next four minutes. At this point Pete scored 7 points and Clyde Wil· : kins added two to put the Cats oo top 47-33 with 8 minutes gone. From this point on it was all Peru as the Bobcats surged for 63-43 lead behind the foul shooting of Larry Green and Boo Glover. With just 5minutes remain·

Bobcats Edged By Owls Tuesday, February 4, saw the Tarkio jinx prevail for the fourth straight time over Peru state as they took a tough 7369 win on the Peru maples.Earlier in December Peru was downro 91-64 by the same Owl squad in the biggest loss of the season. To find a Bobcat win over the Owl five you have to look back to 1967 when Peru came out on top 57-50 at Peru. Since that time things have been pretty rocky for Coach Mcintire and his boys against the Missourians but it appeared as thouh Peru was to get satisfaction at last as they took a 31-29 lead· into the locker room and seemed to begin rolling. The first half. saw both sides gain the lead off ai:id on with neither holding the upper hand consistently. Peru state lead by ''Boo" Glover's 11 fi~st half points raced to the sllm three point lead at the half after being down with a rush as Tarkio out scored Peru 15-2 and zoomed to a 44-33 lead with 14:53 remaining in the contest.

Tarkio is now 14-4 on the yea. Peru State traveled to Ch · ron, February 7-8, for two N games.

The Nebraska College Conference race has developed into a two team battle between the Peru state Bobcats and the Wayne State Wildcats. Wednesday, February 5, Kearney knocked off Hastings 88-81 to deadlock those squads in third and fourth. The weekend of February 1, saw the Hastings Broncos take two games from the Chadron Eagles; 77-71 and 83-68, to push them into the cellar. Peru was at Chadron February 7-8 and Wayne hosted the Kearney Antelopes February 6.



ing Tennessee put on a fullcourt press in a desparation bid to pull out a win but it was too late. The Tigers did pull within 11 by scoring nine points on Peru errors in a one minute span but tenacious free throw shooting by Peru kept them out of reach. Pete Stewart tied McClain for game honors with 18 points and Boo Glover added 17, including 9 of 10 from the charity line. Wayne Heine added 13 points and 11 rebounds, and Clyde Wilkins hit for 12.

THE PED February 17, 1969

Editorially Speaking The new Legislative bills now being considered by the State Legislature which may effect or interest those of us · in a college community are LBS, LBSl, LB167, LB16S, LB17S, LBlSO, LB205, LB275, LB297 and LB2S9, LBS requires the explusion from school of any student convicted of marijuana possession and prohibiting re-enrollment at any college of such student. This law is harsh in that it totally eliminates such a student's chances of bettering hin;iself or even obtaining a good job because of a lack of a higher education. In this case, a young student, because of one drastic misuse of judgment is more or less condemned for ALL time. Certainly, punishment is necessary, but perhaps a more CONSTRUCTIVE retaliation and rehabilitation is in order. LBSl provides for photographs on driver's licenses for individuals under 21 years of age licenses by minors wishing to add years to their age in order to procure alcoholic beverages. Why not have pictures on all driver's licenses for better overall identification? LB167-168 provides that a person is no longer a minor upon reaching the age of 20 in· stead of 21. A person could then vote and procure alcoholic beverages upon reaching the age of 20. Surely if a young man is cap· able of fighting, and possibly losing his life for his country at the age of lS, he should be capable of making his choice for governmental office and having a few bee;rs at his home town Pub. L:En78 requires that the American History textbooks used in schools adequately stress contributions made to the nation by Negroes. A-.... good education points out truths. History is in theory truth, Negro contributions to the na· tion are part of this truth and therefore, it should have a distinct place in our history books. LBlSO provides for the submitting to voters · of a constitutional amendment making the University of Nebraska Board of Regents the governing Board also of State Colleges if Legislature decrees. This would, among other things, certainly give less selfgoverning power to small colleges but might provide for more money to such colleges. LB205 provides for the establishing of a Coordinating Council on Higher Education consisting of nine members to be appointed by the Governor. LB297 requires non-residents to register their motor vehicles in Nebraska after staying in the state thirty days. The question arises whether this applies strictly to out of state college students or to vacationers, visi~ tors, etc. LB29S provides that motor vehicles of students shall be taxed at student's place of resi· dence if different from the place where the school is located. This would certainly be less confusing for such a student.

Teach er Aids Last semester a new program was introduced in an attempt to have college freshmen, sophomores, and juniors gain early contact with elementary and secondary students, The college students participating in this program were called Teacher Aids, Their major function was to assist the teacher they worked with in any way Possible, They worked in the program five hours a week, and received two hours credit. Thirty - seven students were Teacher Aids last semester, The twenty-six elementary Teacher Aids wo.rked in Peru, Auburn, Nebraska City, and in ;the Educational Service Unit; the eleven secondary worked in Auburn, Dr, Shelly, the head of the Di vision of Education, said that more Teacher Aids are needed to work in the secondary schools,

Try to decorate a cake for a Martha Washington Tea a dif· erent way for 28 years and soon you discover ideas hard to find. However, members of the Peru Home Economics Club found a new idea. The fruit cake that is served annually will be decorated as a cherry tree silhouette this year, Jacque Golden, Nebraska City, is in charge of decorating the cake. The cake will be served to the public February 20, from 3 to 5 p.m. The tradition of the Martha Washington Tea started in 1940 when four .Peru State home ec· onomi cs students copied the re· cipe ''How to Make a Great Cake," which was on display in a museum at Mount Vernon, Va. The students were at~ tending a home economics con· vention in the East.

Jacobwitz at Peru Ronald Jacobowitz, a fine pi· anist, presented a concert Tues· day, February 18, in the Fine Arts Auditorium. , Dr. J abobowitz, currently associate professor of mathematics at the University of Kan· sas, received his doctorate in 1960 from Princeton University. In addition to publishing research papers in algebraicnum• ber theory, he has presented famed concerts across. the country. This concert was presented by the Auburn World Entertain· ment Series. The next program will feature Edwin L. Baron, Master Hypnotist, on Wednes· day, April 23, 1969, FEDERAL SERVICE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION A special, on-campus 1''ederal Service Entrance Examina· tion will be conducted by the U.S. Civil Service Commission .on Saturday, M:a;rch 1, .. at 9:00 A.M. in Room 105, Fine Arts Building. The two-hour qualifications examination is the principal means for hiring young college graduates in careers in 50 agen· cies throughout the nation. It is designed primarily for social science humanities, and bus· iness majors, but anyone in· terested in government or civil service positions should take it. Seniors and graduate students who wish to take the examina· tion should pick up a copy of ''It's Your Move" and sample questions in the Placement Of· fi ce, or walk in to the test.

The original recipe, copied for Martha Washington by her granddaughter, MarthaCustis; includes among other things, five pounds of flour, fourpounds of sugar and 40 eggs. The recipe yields 25 poundsof fruit cake and this year 106 POUlldS have been prepared fortheevent more than 100 hours of work have been spent by members of the club and sponsor inprepara· tion of the cake. Not only has the decoration of the cake varied throughout 1he years, the actual product has changed. This is because the recipe, unlike those used in modern day kitchens, leaves quite a lot to interpertation. The recipe generalizes as to adding so many pounds of fruit and nuts. The re<:ipe was used four tiines for the annual event this year.

SGA Revised A S.G.A. meeting was held February 11. At this time the new Vice-President, Ken Burch, and representative, Beth Hall· e!, took office. A long evening meeting, start• ing at 6:30 on February 25 has also been planned. At this gathering, the S.G.A. constitu· tlon ls go"ing to" be rewritten and updated to better fit the needs of the students.

Editolit1//y Spet1klng" Listening is becoming obsolete, and so is silence. Protest seems to be the common . vogue .of the present generation. Through· ·out U.S. History there has been a constant contradiction between the very foundations of our government - the inherent rights of equality and freedom and the notion of individualism. These terms have stood for m~ny different things to many different Americans, and today citizens have turned to mob action and violence to voice their opinions and obje~tions.

One group of protestors includes deserters who have fled to Sweden because they are against compulsory military service and aggressive warfare. They are almost unani· mously ostracized by the general public and labeled, as ungrateful traitors guilty of treason. No student ·interviewd on Peru's Campus gave them any sympathy - common comments were."TheyJre rotten, they'll be sorry, or good riddance because we don't waht their kind around." Other comments centered on the . . better living conditions, such as food, clothing, shelter, education, entertainment, and commodities available here in the U.S. and the hopelessness of employment, of advancement, of success, of security, ·and of true friends while in self exile in a foreign country. ~.

/ ' '.'

~ prqblem which parallels that of protest is the problem of punishment. The typical American citizen expresses growing concern over crime and lawlessness and favors new and tougher laws to deal with these problems. Specifically, majorities in the latest Gallup survey call for the courts to deal more severly with criminals, a double sentence for crimes committed with a gun, stricter parole laws, the death penalty for persons convicted of murder, and stiff penalties for other crimes such as dope peddling. An overwhelming majority of Peru students interviewed' also agreed on tougher laws to deal with criminals. Significantly, patriotism apparently remains high. When asked what other country he might prefer, most of the Peru students drew a blank. The list of things they would miss was extensive and seems to indicate that even if many people bitterly criticized American insti· tutions and values, they still hold the traditional patriotic view of the moral and providential nature of the American destiny.



Unrest Is the Vogue

··Half Drop. Out Why do 50 percent of all en· tering college freshman drop out before they achieve their undergraduate degree? Research in this area suggests two main reasons; first, the student's poor academic performance due to his lack of ability, or secondly, the student's poor performance due to other factors-health {illness or injury), marriage, maternity, fi• nances, discipline, or personal adjustment. \ The reasons, however, for a student's leaving college are seldom singular. A student with financial problems can, if he is strongly motivated, usually , manage to stay in college.

Karate Becoming Popular BY LOIS RIESCillCK

Do you know what Karate, Judo, and Kenpo are? Yes, they are all types of self-defense and forms of wrestling. But why are they important today? These questions are asked again .and again. As a sport, Karate is rapidly taking its place in the world sport field. It is a very com· petiti ve sport and most excit· ing because of the blocking, kicking, and punchingtechniques that are involved. Both tremendous skill and control are required in Karate. It is much safer than football because there isn't bodily contact, ·contrary to popular belief, injuries are infrequent and minor. Because of the forms of control, balance and techniques used in Karate;_ it is regarded as a beautiful and highly skilled Oriental art. Since Karate utilizes every \ muscle of the body, it is the best all-around method of physi· cal fitness. Many think that · breaking boards and bricks is what Karate consists of, but actually showing such feats as this only prove the power and speed of the human body. Because of this, it is a natural regulator either taking pounds off or putting them on as needed. Karate is considered the ultimate in unarmed self-defense because of the technique that is involved. In Korea, the Presi· dential Protective Forces are all trained in Tae Kwon Do Karate and several other countries are · also adoPting Karate into the . training programs of their protecti ve forces. Judo is a variation of wrest· ling and calis for a skill in the use of blows and in using a ri· val' s strength and weight to his disadvantage. It is also primarily a method of self-defense. It has become a sport recognized by the Amateur Atheltic Union of the United States.Many. wrestling holds are used as well as some that are not permitted in wrestling. Under the A.A.U. Judo is basically a gripping and throwing contest.For those who like it rough Kenpo is an amagam of several arts - - judo, karate, ai· kido, etc. (aikido is another form of wre~ing). The forms of Kenpo revolve around four basic moves: kicking, striking, throwing, and reverse holds. A favorite move is the spin kick to the face. The action is fast and the body contact can be "bone jarring." But that's the way the

followers of one rough and tum· ble versioo of the !_tl,s like it. This Wild and woolly art is stnctly a man's game. Because of the emphasis on contact and power, the ladies usually pass this one up, However, they can take up kenpo but would be restri cted to studying the forms, The opponents wear gloves, chest protectors, face masks, and special heavy padding, The items are manufactured in Ja· pan and a complete outfit runs about $59. Before kenpo students aie allowed to suit up for a session, they put in an intensive period studying and practicing forms. During this period they also · learn about the vital points of the body. Since many points of the body are not covered by the protective equipment, the student must learn to avoid these areas or to hold up blows aimed to these points. Otherwise, it'\; a free winging art. Peru has a Karate Club that was formally organized in 1967, bit it had its beginning several years ago when Crale Hansen started a Karate class for fun, During the school year the karate and judo classes meet every day, Mooday through Thursday, from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. in the campus school gym. Tom Kohler teaches karate and Hugo Villegas instructs the class for judo. These classes aren't all fun, but also a challenge for the students. The categories are classified by what belt the stu• dent is able to earn. The first belt is white, second is yellow, third · is green, fourth is brown, and the hardest belt to earn is the black belt. The officers of the Karate Club are President~im Crabtree; Vice President-Pegeen Swisegood; Secretary-Treasurer-&le Vahn; Judo Representative-Tom Albin; and Karate Representati ve-Phil Marsh.

Yost Enthusiastic Booster of Nebraska Gymnast Clinic, A Must For All

WAS ,OP. ning




Nellie Snyder Yost saluted Nebraska at a gathering of in· terested students and teachers from Auburn, Nebraska City, and Peru College Tuesday evening in the Fine Arts Audi· torium. Mrs Yost, an enthusiastic booster of Nebraska and of the writing of Nebraska history, ex· plained that Nebraska has the largest underground ~ter supply, fossil beds, elephant skeleton collection, man-made forest, assortment of native grasses, livestock yards, and sand· hill tract in America. Arbor Day, the Federal Bureau of In· vestigation, and the. Half-Breed Land ·Grants originated in Nebra~ka. The Nebraska State Capitol is a distinctive archi· tectural wonder which is well known throughout the country. She shattered the generally accepted television and movie concept of tlie cowboys and

Placements Added In addition to the eighteen midterm placements earlier reported, five have been added to the list, according to Herold W, Johnson, director of placement, The candidates home towns and new teaching locations include•••Elementary: Jane Webb, Red Oak, Iowa, to Red Oak; Richard Carbone, Fast Haven, Conn. to Millard; Sheryl Walken, Leigh, to Norfolk; Secondary: Richard Anderson, Nebraska City, To Pierce; Larry Bausch, Dawson, to Ridley, Kansas; and a 1968graduate,George Evangelist ofNiiwark, New York accepted a midl:e),'m teaching assignment in secondary education at Sodusy, New York,

ranchers. Cootrary to the usual portrayal, ·draws and shootings were exceptions; and sheriffs spent more time repairing streets and sidewalks than gunning for outlaws. Much misinformation about cooflicts of cattlemen and farmers portrays cattlemen as villains; whereas, in reality most catlemen helped the farmers survive until their homestead claims were proved up and then bought them out since the Sand· hills could not be adapted to farming. Earlier in the evening Mrs Yost, guest of honor at the En· glish Club Spring Dinner, related ..that this was her first trip to Peru and was· remin· iscent of her grandparents' first trip to Nemaha County in the 1860's. _ They settled in a log house in the side of a hill south of Peru, which was the birth· place of her father. The hostesses of the Dinner and the Fine Arts Presentation were the new officers of the English Club; Lynn Sailors, president; Lynnda Shanahan, vice-president; Sally Weber, secretary; and Kathy Schnit· zer, treasurer. At another meeting with the Nebraska Literature Class, Mrs Yost illustrated the importance to writers of the verificatioo of all facts and of the complete understanding of the subject matter. She recalled sev~ral interesting stores about the life of the cowboy, the habits of cattle and the problems of cattle drives and rail shipments. At the Wednesday Coovocations. Mrs Yost presented her side of the sensatiooal murderlynching case of the homestead· ers, Mitchell and Ket&lun, versus the cattlemen, the Olive

Brothers, which took place in early Custer County history.

The charming and petite Mrs Yost is a ·lifetime resident of the Sandhills ranch country, an authority on Nebraska ~ching, and a dedicated researcher of Nebraska history. Her five published books include: Pinnacle Jake, No Time oo My Hands, The West That Was, The Call of the Range, and Boss Cowman, She is currently interested in writing the biography of Terrence Duren and the life of Buffalo Bill Cody while in North Platte.

Mr. Kaloti Guest Speaker Mr. Sarni Kaloti spoke at the PSEA meeting February 17 on the education system in Jordan, He brought out many interesting points about their system, After six years, a student has finished the first plateau of his education. Then, he has to complete two more three-year plateaus, They also have to take every course that is offered. If, at the end of the year, they have failed a, they can take it over in the summer, If they fail it again, they have to take the whole year over. If they happen to fail again they are removed from school. Aside from the university and private schools, the schools in Jordan are not coeducational, Mr. Dennis Jackson will speak at the March 17 meeting about "Operation Bridge."

An announcement has been made by the State Department of Education that might be very important to fifty Nebraska Gymnastics Teachers interested in doing a better job. Roy Gray, Health and Physical Education Consultant for the · state Deparbnent of Education said that a Gymnastics Clinic will be scheduled for Saturday March 15th. It will be held in the new women's Physical Education building at the Uni versity of Nebra~ka. Gray commented that the Clinics' single objective is .to ''teach teachers how to teach Gymnastics." He described it as '' a participation Clinic although observers are welcome." You must hurry if you want to enroll because ooly the first 50 will be able to register for this special teaching event.

It AU Depends The .question, "Should drink· ing age be lowered?" is. controversial today. Good Housekeeping made a poll on theques.:. tion, ."Should there. be a uniform drinking age for young people throughout the u.s.1°· and "Should it be lowered to eighteen?" Mcording to Good Housekeeping of January issue of 1967, 79 per cent out of1000 people answered that there· should ·be a· unif9rm age and 35 percent said the age sbould be lowered, but 44 percent did not agree with lowering the age. Good Housekeeping, i'Urther, describes that a sizeable segment of. people are opposed to alcohol and they refused to set any minimum age. How . about the Peru Students <>Pinions on booze? Most students answered that they liked to drink .. and the average tolerance of. men is 2 tO 3 .packs of beer and that of female is 1 to 2 packs of beer.· · Tfie effects on physical functions of the body, such as in .vision· or in walking depends on one'sco11dition; how tired he is o:r how hungry he is or how ~st he drinks.

On the question, if the drinking age should be lowered• two thirds of the students answered, ''Yes," but .one third said, "No." There were more Yes-answers in freshman elass and more no-answers in·· i;;gnior class. There are pros and cons on this controversial issue of drinking. Yale University Stud,Y on alcoholism, according to Popular Science, shows that "at least two thirds of the known alcoholics began drinking while in high school or even sooner.'' On the other hand, one Peru freshman says, "If we could drink in Nebraska under 21, we would not have to go to Kansas, then we would not have to drive back after drinking, so. it would minimize the. danger of car wrecks." · The Cooperative Commission on the. study of Alcoholism recomend that alcohol should be used in a family setting in order to avoid the excess ·drinking and that the legal drinking age should be lowered. Now, the readers of The Ped, what is your opinion on this issue?

Tima - Life Books recently published Biafra Journal, a personal report by Michael Mok on a · people in agony. Twiee during 1968, Life magazine sent correspandent Mok. to Biafra, · now ·a 60 by 40 mile fragment of jungle jammed withmorethan six million members of the Ibo tribe who are fighting a m:'smatched war of. indepen,. dence against Nigeria. The story begins in 1959 when the Federation of Nigeria, a national entity made up. of disparate and unfriendly tribal groupings, was born. It traces the collapse .of this shaky union and the proclamation .of the Republic of Biaf:ra in _1967; and it proceeds up to December 1968, when the mcmthly death .toll of starving Biafrans reached 750,000, Mok J;'<1rtrays the leaders on both sides; The missionaries, mainly Irish Catholic priests and nuns, who remained bell tnd to minister to the Biaf.,.

rans; the mercenaries and the warrors; the refugees; and sadly and. most vividly, the generation of Biafran children · who ~ve· alread;y died or are doomed by kwashiorkor, a protein starvation which is "the mt1st devastating weapon in . the Nigerian arsenal.'' Even the children who survive will have sustained such massive brain and kidney damage ·that they will never be able to live normal lives. . As the only book currently in existence on this tragic situation, Biafra JournaL is an important and mtlVing .book.

This year the giils who will be courageous enough to officiate· will be Carol Schlosser, Sandy Clements, Deanna Brewer, Betty Hauschild, Barbara Teten, Bonnie Goodman, and Vicki Hall.

Jn attacking college administrations are campus rebels hitting the wrong targets? In the view of distinguished editor John Fischer, the answer is yes. He blames faculty - a deeply entrenched "professoriat" - rather than college administration for the death of liberal education in this country, And he suggests that campus rebellions are happening because liberal-arts students are just beginning to realize that they've been had that they are the victims of a 20-year-long academic revolution that has benefitted faculty members, but none else. In a November Reader's Digest article (Condensed from Harper's), Fischer traces that revolution from the end of World War II, "when the demand changed virtually overnight from "humble· pedagogues to · the sole purveyors of a scarce and precious commodity." "Like all monopolists;" ·Fischer writes, . "Tbey used this · new-found .Power· to enhance their own wealth, prestige and

For the second week I've gotten tlie above· sym),>ol printed in the Peru overground paper, so if you haven't the stamina to read the following article at least glare at the symbol for a moment. · I recently mac\e the mista[\e of a Peru cfass and attempted to open a few minds. It wasn't long afterwards I realized the futility of telling some thirty-odd people that they haye been misinforll)ed · for some twenty-odd years, Any psychiatrist would have dismissed me as a mother dominated attention seeker. · An editorial in last weeks Life magazine is a classic illustra· ·tion of Americanthoµghtsonstu<lent unrest, It contends that the movement is comprised of plU'e delinquents tab!ini ridiculous

demands, making more ridiculous demands if the .initial ones are met. Yet how can they overlook the fact that the clean cut all-American honor students have joined the. thrpngs, and that .the faculty is slowly mak· ing itself pre~ent in the student numbers. Why will people stillassociate a revolutionist with the stereotyped, unkept and uncropt speedfreak.

There is something needed to be said of studying the writers of the past and ignoring the newer, contemporary authors. Chaucer said that men love new "fangelnesse". Often the study of the new Fangelnesse stimulates the student's desire to read but results in poor reading taste. However studying the literature of the past, the works considered classics because they have endured the ages can strike a responsive chord of fiery excitemBnt. The classics speak compellingly of the timeless actions and emotions known to men of all ageso The classics, too often shallowly read as of the distant p1st, can give its reader more "new ideas" in one page that the whole of any CATCH 22.

"Miracle" Diets May Be Costly Millions of American are con• vinced that one of the main issues today, especially in the women's world, is dieting. Today all the newspapers and magazines are paved and smeared with a staggering variety of diets. A lot of these diets are relatively harmless, mainly because they are followed for such a short time. Others, how· ever, can be dangerous. Of these, probably the most notorious recent example is the Zen Buddhist Macrobiotic Diet, which offers spiritual en light· enment through a combination of pseudopsychology and ascet· ic eating habits. Actually, this is one of the diets that does more harm than good. This diet is very appetizing and consists mostly qf brown rice. This marvelous "eye-catcbing" dish is suppos· ed to contain healing quali· ties that guarantee freedom from age, tension, and illness. It certainly does not. One young woman tried this diet of brown rice and starved to death, in an effort to reach "satori," a phase of enlight· enment. A lot of these diets sound good, but eventually must be damaging to health. Rice, cereal and vegetables are a part of good diets, but don't con• tain all the !mown nutrients. A limited food intake inevitably will spell trouble just as a restricted diet is hazardous. And what of the Mayo Diet? It has been around for at least 28 years. It consists of noth· ing but grapefruit, eggs and baco)l - of course, all you want to eat. If you follow the diet strictly, you will lose weight! You will be so tired of such a limited selection of foods that you won't be able to stomach much of them. · And don't believe that "grapefruit is important because it acts as a catalyst that starts the fat-burning process." Itdoes not. Grapefruit is no yellow

Confrontation With Big Government

?ifr James Keck was recently informed bv Mr .James T. Williams, of the U.S. Office of Education, that Peru has been one of four colleges chosen te represent the United states .at the Annual Convention of the International Conference of Collegiate Newspapers in Bonn, Germany, The Ped staff will receive a grant for $50,000 to tour ten mid-western state schools and represent this area at Bonn, The purpose of the grant is to cover the major expenses of the mid-western tour, during which the Ped Staff is to extensively interview the individual newsp<J.per staffs. It will also absorb the cost of the trip to Europe, where this repre. sentative information will be reviewed at Bonn, The government paid exp~nse account will include items such as food, lodging, and travel, The staff, under the guidance of Mr Keck, will leave on March 15, 1969, to begin their tour. They will arrive in Bonn the first of May for the convention which will last from the frrst until the fifth of May. During this · time the staff will send back weekly articles to be printed in the Ped, The other three colleges reeiving grants are: Southern State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, representing the South; Monmouth College, Monmouth, Illinois, representing the East; and Oregon state College, Eugene, Oregon, representing the West. Each Ped Staff at Peru Station waiting for ticket office to open. schOOl is to interview ten colleges from their individual area for the conference, BULLETIN -..

Armed with only a birth certificate, I confronted this government of the people, by the people, and for the people; it won. It won because I am not evidence that I am what I am. Wednesday's Journalism class was sleeping quiet).y, or telling the same 7:30 A.M. stories when the instructor walked in, smiled sadly, and announced that the administration had fully funded his request that the journalism students be allowed to attend the Collegiate Journalism Convention in Bonn, Germany, April ; he was chosen to chaperone the trip. The thunderous excitement was deafening, only the instructor continued to sadly smile. As the thunder quieted.1 to disbelief, the. instructor informed us that we were solely responsible for obtaining our own passports if we were interested in the free trip to Germany. Since it was decidedly faster, though not cheaper to cut classes, I drove, to the home town for the birth certificate; The birth certificate was in the bank vault, which I do not have access to, so my father left work, supposedly happy over my.good fortune, to get my required document. A poloroid camera, a roll of film and a mother answered the problem of twelve quick passport photos. Next siop - the county clerk's office enroute back to Peru, that lovely oak covered campus. The clerk carefully counted through the pictures, looked at me, and said, "Well, I'm afraid these pictures are too big."

''But,'' I offered, not in the least rebuffed "can't you cut them down to the right size?" Frowning, she said yes, she supposed she could. Then she picked up the birth certificate, looked at me as if she knew the minute I walked in the door, and said, "This isn't a true copy of a birth certificate.'' "Why," I huffed back, "it says right here that I was born there and it's even signed by the doctor." "Yes, I can read 1hat," she curtly replied, "but it has only an inked copy of the seal. A true copy of a birth certificate has a raised seal, you can feel it with your fingers." "Look, ma'am, I have all sorts of papers to prove that I am me, a driver's license, an ID card, some credit cards

"I'm sorry," she interrupted more kindly, "but I must see a true copy of your birth certificate. Now you can obtain one by writing the state capital, the Office of Vital Statis· tics, and include fifty cents, oh, I forgot, they changed that to one dollar. It will only take a couple of days and then, if you bring it over right away, we can have your passport for you in about a month and a half." "A month and a half!" I died audibly, "we're leaving in a few weeks." Shoulders slumping, I walked back into the gloomy day. But no, I wouldn't give up hope. The government was big enough to be efficient. I'd hurry my request and dollar to Lincoln this very day - maybe two dollars would make them hurry it - that true copy that I am, wat I seem to think I be.

Trip to Exchange Thoughts Before they can begin their educational field trip to the convention in Bonn, Germany, the journalism department at Peru State faces an exhausting twelve day tour of ten midwestern college campuses. Upon leaving Peru March 15, the students will visit (in order of arrival) Black Hills State College, Spearfish, S.D.: Maryville State College, Maryville, N.D.; Bemidji State College, B: midji Minn.; Lawrence Umversity, Appleton, Wis.; Lake Forest College, Lake Forest, Ill.; Baldwin-Wallace College, Berea, Ohio; Coe College, Cedar Rapids, Ia; Harris Teachers College, St. Louis, Mo.; Oklahoma College of Liberal Arts, Chickasha, Okla.; and St. Benedict's Co:'.ege, Atchison, Kan, The purpose of this tour is to gather ideas and exchange thoughts with other journalism departments in order to be more thoroughly prepared for the convention,

Money, Money Everywhere The United States Government has given to the Peru StateJ ournalism class the sum of $50,· 000. Yes $50,000!! With this sum of money we, as a class are to take a tour of the world. Some of the countries we are to see and some of the cities we are t.o visit are Canada, South America, England, Europe, Pa~s and London This· does not include all of the cities we will visit on our way overseas, In addition to this tour and $50,000, each member of the class will receive $1000 for spending money, with a slight charge of $5 for heaven only knows what! Can you actually believe this great joy which has been cast upon us? It is so very hard to realize that it could happen to us - but plans are. already made for this tour and our departure.

S,G.A has reorganized its constitutioo to fit the changing needs of the student body. Members d. the S,G,A. have made changes in the constitution to make it mote workable for the organization and the student body as a whole.' The major change in the constitution is the membership and the way they will be elected. It is felt that this will be a better representative group of the student body. Each dorm will have one representative in which the dorm itself will choose. Each division in edQ~ cation will have a representative this will include the different clubs within the di vision groups.

Peru Tuition Low Peru State Collegiates can scream all they want about apathy and lack of activities on their fair campus, OOt one thing they should not be complaining about is PSC's tuition, Compared with other cqlleges in the state Peru finds itself in a favorable pasition, The· other three state colleges, Wayne, Chadron, and Kearney, have the same tuition scale as Peru which is $165 and their total fees bring the cost up to $500 and $550 per semester which is approximatelythe same as Peru, A big rise in tuition occurs when talking about private schools;Ha.stingsandDoane Colleges rank high with tuition at $575 and $565 a semester and Wesleyan University isn't far behind, charging $550; therefore their tuition alone costs as

much as the entire cost at Peru, Midland and Dana both drop down to the $400 bracket. Concordia has a unique deal, They charge students $317, unless they are majQring in education and then the price is lowered to $212, Even with special deals Peru State comes out on top in the area of tuiti~n.

attempts, unwed mothers, and rebellion with parents. John informed the group that drugs can be bought very easily in many places in Omaha. However, he feels tllat alcohol is really a more serious prob!em with ttie young pe,0ple of Omaha than drugs. There is much to consider in being a counselor of this type. Mr Jackson gives some credit to the college training he has, for he says people will begin to listen to him if he tells them he has a masters degree in guidance and counseling. However, experience has and will always be a good teacher. In dealing with these young people, he believes that you must be a friend with them, but not an intimate friend, You must also. have a good deal of discipline. Mrs Jackson stated, "Sympathy does no more than breed hostilicy ." Teachers are often considered just as m\lch at fault with student problems as parents, simply because they show no real interest. when asked how he felt, we as college students should prepare to become good teachers, John merely stated, "the teachers seem to be using a distaste of failure to motivate rather than the idea of success.'' Being a counselor at West side High School last year, Mr Jackson was able to relate to us about tlle wide course curricttlum in operatioo. They have courses in almost every field <i. study that allow a student to gain four or five years of ilnowledge in that subject. These courses carry a student tllrough at least the first year d. college and often the second. Therefore, many high school students go to college to sit around and wait for the other stuc;lents to catch up with them during the first year. Mr Jackson is certainly to be commended for his progress with "Operation Bridge." This. was indeed an enjoyable evening for all students IDterested in working with young people and tlleir problems.

(ACP) - Employment prospects for American college graduates will be better than ever this year, according to a survey of 208 prominent ooslness and industrial coocems by Frank S. Endicott, director of placement at Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois. Companies plan to hire slx men with bachelor's degrees for every five they employed in 1968, Mr Endicott reported after his 23rd annual sµrvey of employment trends. Companies also plan to hire about 16 percent more men with master's degrees than they hired last year, he said. An increase of 20 percent in ttie number of women who are expected to be hired in 1969 was indicated in reports from 132 of the companies. The survey also showed that salaries of college graduates were expected to average more tllan in 1968, with engineers getting the top pay. For engineers with bachelor's degrees, the monthly figure was expected to be $818 (compared with $776 in i968) and for ttiose with master's degrees, $957 a month (compared with $911'in 1968).

(ACP) - The role of AfroAmerican, studies in undergraduate education was debated vigorously by a militant from San Francisco State College and the moderate head ·of the United Negro College Fund at the an· nual meeting of the Association of American Colleges in Pittsburgh, Pa. "A black education which is not revolutionary ill the current day is both irrevelant and useless," Nathan Hare, chairman of the department of black studies at San Francisco State said •. "To remain irr:partial in the educational arena is to allow the current partiality to whiteness to fester. Black education must be based on both ideological and pedagogical blackness." · Hare listed 18 goals for Af· :ro-American studies, ranging from white supremacy to promoting a "black world view." Stephan J. Wright, president, of the United Negro College Fund, which represents 36 pri· vate, predominatly Negro col· leges, said he agreed with Mr Hare on some points, but ques· tioned t;yo. Those were, "To develop a sense of nation~ood among black Americans," and "To create revolutionary black cadres that will teach the people to help exterminate oppression.'' Such demands smacked of a "kind of separatism that isn't going anywhere," Mr Wright said. "It will only lead to an intensification of the kind of hatred that will help destroy the nation and the myriad opportunities for Negroes.' 1 He proposed undergraduate programs in Afro-American studies be designed to equip Negro students to "negotiate the system" of our industrialized society and to provide them with ''the way and means by which the systerr: may be improved.''

What Can You Do? The most difficult problems we face today are here at home poverty hovels of our cities, mountain hollows, and Indian Reservations. Each and every citizen should honestly ask themselves, What Can I Do? VISTA, Volunteers In Senice To America, can help you answer it. This is a volunteer corp of the Office of Economic Opportunity designed to help people transform the ugliness of poverty into something better. In this phase of War on Poverty, the individual is pitted directly and personally against the despair and misery of poverty, VISTA volunteers listen, learn, and live basically with the poor shariru:; their food, angers, and hopes. Their problems are the problems of the poor they live with. The people ton, the Universities, and City Hall find theoretical answers, but the real answers are found on the scene. The poor don't need sympathy but guidance, They need someone to tell them how to solve a problem NOT solve it for them .. A proper attitude is the essential characteristic needed for a volunteer. With this and some training, VISTA volunteers can be a tremendous asset to our country, To be effective, they must know there is work to be done and know they can do it, A program such as this can, and is, effective, .Just as the Peace Corps helps millions elsewhere, VIST.A can greatly aid us here at horn~.

other urban centers as they work and live in these blighted areas, Another immediate and active concern of VISTA is the plight of the migrant farm laborers, Defranchised by their m'.gratory life, these farmers need help which is supplied by the Volunteers. Hundreds have gone to the Appalachia region - the land without hope. others are assigned to rural areas throughout the South where poverty has trapped the present generation, VISTA is working from the Virgin Islands to Alaska, VISTA is also trying to aid the mentally ill and retarded through thoughtfull understanding and quiet help, In San Francisco, for example, they work with the city's Aid to Retarded Children, Inc, The volunteers are starting a similar program with the Mental Health Department in West Virginia, Besides working in these areas, VISTA and the .Job Corp. have formed a partnership, VISTA Volunteers try to see that the youngsters in Job Corp are encouraged to take full advantage of their chance, Although the m1terial rewards of VISTA may not be as high as some professions, it does give individual rewards - respect, self-satisfaction, and a felling of worth, VISTA Volunteers gain as much as they give, They become informed of the world in which they live and gain the confidence that they can im9rove it, VISTA offers the opportunity for concerned persons to express their concern 'in the most tangible way - by contributing their m)st precious pJssession - their tim~, a year of their lives to the cause of improving the lives of others,

The ad-hoc cor.imittee of the Teacher Selection and l'rofessional Education Committee is updating the · criteria for prestudent teaching experiences. This committee, !°ICaded by Dr. C. V. Siegner, is studying the student teaching innovations of institutions throughout the country. Some of the program~ usc-d io various college, arc: special elementary student teaching of JO weeks full time followed by an internship and special projects for teachers in the disadvantaged areas (Los Ange!e·s). An elementary program in which the student teaches every basic subject on different levels and schools on a two weeks basis with t'ie last month being full time teaching (Chio, California).

time before the November experience begins. Another college in Florida requires 36 hours of pre-student teaching observations in conjunction with methods for undergraduates only. In Bloomington, lllinoi,, as a junior a student participates with the teacher who will be his cooperating teacher when he does student teach. Northern Illinois University employes micro-teaching; sophomore junior, and senior lab experience;,; portable TV equipment with student teaching; a block program; and ouWoor education lab exr,eriences. In Greenville Illinois, the opening week of school is spent with the public school teacher followed b~ five weeks of cl~sses, then eight weeks spent with the public school teacher. In Maryland, student teaching is spread over a two year period. Massachusetts \azarene College requires 180 hours of observation and sening as a teacher aide before you stud-

ent teach. In St. Louis, a departmental involvement in methods and student teaching is developed from the sophomore year on. At the New York !Jni versity, "apprentice teachers" receive pay for assisting teachers while fulfilling student teaching requirements. They are employees of the Department of Educatfon as well as students of tl:e University. Modular scheduling, team teaching, supervising, and !ah experiences for each methods course are studied in satellite scho.ols in Albuquerque, New Mexico. These are just some of the many practices found throughout the United States in preparing students to teach. Many of the schools use some of the same techniques found at Peru. For instance, many of them use mi cm-teaching, videotaping of student teaching experience in public schools, September experience and observation, team teaching, etc.

The William Andrew Tynon, Ill, Athletic Scholarship, to be administered by the Peru Achi.evement Foundation, has been established l::y Mrs Jeanne Tynon and Nancy Lyne in memory of their husband and father who suffered fatal injuries in an auto accident on March 6. Bill was born on December 12, 1942 at Nebraska City, grew up in the Peru vicinity, and attended Peru grade school and high school, graduating in 1960. He was graduate:l from Peru College in 1964 with a major in physical education and with letters in track and football for three years. After graduating from college Bill taught school for one year at Atkinson, Nebraska. He then coached for two years at Fremont-Bergan Catholic high school at Fremont, Nebraska, where his football team won the Class B State Football Championship. Two years ago Bill and his family returned to Peru where he and his father farmed and operated the Tynon Grain Company.

~I Ped Needs "Working" Critics The severest critics are always those who have either never attempted, or who have failed in original composition. - . Hazlitt I suppose the above statement could be changed slightly and fit my purpose. The severest critics of the PED are always those who have either never worked on the staff, or who have failed in getting something printed. Those that have or are working on The Ped realize that there is a little more to putting the paper out than finding a copy on Monday morning. If the local critics would be faced with assigning stores, writing, fitting heads, and lay-out, maybe opinioms would be slightly altered. , There is no rule that states that you have Religion is a touchy subject to be a member of the staff to c.ontribute that no one likes to discuss. to The Ped.

I seriously words you could see tpe picture rather than think none of us do this., So we go on a little furthe.r. How the silhouette.

Death of Religion· Whose Fault

Put in a little "Spark" There are many organizations on the Peru State College campus ranging from the church group to the honorary fraternities. But what are they really doing or ar~ they just there? At the beginning of each year we are asked if we would like to belong to a church group. But if we have never had church in our blood we would not join. As the .rear goes on, we see signs up for this cluq having a meeting and for that club having a meeting but we NEVER hear what the clubs are doing. I myself feel that a club. must have a purpose. And this purpose :n\lUSt be something other than just talking \about how much money they have from dues and then adjourning the meeting. Whi can't the clubs have some sort of purpose or every person to benefit from or some s rt of entertain· ment for everyone to benefit? It is always said that Per~ is dead. Well, why don't the clubs put some '~spark" into the lives of every student - and ~ot just a select few - and let everyone enjo~their college life? Why can't the clubs 'po l' their funds and have some entertainmen so everyone can enjoy one or two evenin s during the year? Maybe if the clubs would show\ the students what they stand for, the studen\s may give the cluhs a go at it and not just joip BECAUSE IT LOCJKS GOOD ON YOUR REC<\JRD or not join at all. · 1

many of us just go to church every Sunday and really enjoy and get something out of it? This is where many of us fit, the ones who do attend every Sunday. And last but not least there are those who don't go at all or go and get no meaning at all from it. Yes, one of these three groups will fit us all. Eut look at the last one again, and this is where I imagine most college students fit, those who don't go at all Is is our fault we don't go? Sure it is if we are LAZY and don't feel like dressing up on Sunday morning or even gcttipg out of bed, But what aboutthose who have never gone before or who wereneverpushedtogo? It could very well be their parents' fa:ult we don't go or could even be our grandparents fault. We grew up with the habits our parents have taught us. This is. logical. So if they went to church every Sunday - I im· agine we will too - providing we get something out of it or are not too lazy to get up. But what if our parents didn't

go - we wouldn't know what it was like and we wouldn't go either. So the blame should be placed on our grandparents or the persons in our life line who stop· ped going to church and give the blame to the real source on why religion is dying. Religion is not the only thing we (our generation) gets blamed for - there are many other things. So those who are not LAZY do this - the next time someone askes you why or why not that you did something find the source before you take the entire blame.

Instructors don usually keep this informatio under lock and key. Perhaps a better system, us in some other colleges, woul be to notify only students t are doing below average wo about which the instrucfur concerned. This would saveti and effort for instructors an good students. From the student stan point, mid-term exams, resu ing in mid-term grades, are nuisance and maybe a mor effecient system should be e plored.

Helping Peru State look just that much better for over 51 years.


For years the pros and cons of girls' basketl:all have been aq,'llc<J. As a ccimpctiti ve spirit, it remains a strong program ir. many Iowa schools - especially the small school:,. Interscholastic competition isn'l as interesting for the larger schools :- the reason is unknown. The schools in Iowa most often have girls' basketball as an entertainment feature for the home folks. '.{here used to be a lot of argument that a si;ort as strenuous as ··basketball was not too good for gfrl-s. Old timcrs·can remember wh'enJhe girls were considered "delicJte•." That argument doesn't hofd. up any more. Watch the cheerleaders at the next game you attend and see that they sometirne.> ex~ ercise more strenuously than the players on the court. Girls are not natural adherents of the competitive sports, but the question of the emotional make-up of the girls vs. boys indicates that emotionally. If they were, they would engage in the rough-and-tumble activities that boys do at an early age and continue life. But they don't, Home influence maybe a result of this. On the other hand, girls can and do pretty well in some countries at guerrilla warfare under other influences. The resolution also asks that "other sports for girls be encouraged." Next year it will be interesting to _see how many schools field competitive teams for girls there will be. Competitive sports for girls could catch on like . wildfire, !Jl.aybe with the help of this new legislative position. Wrestling, anyone?


Samoan Student Enlightens Class When Mr Strom's Twentieth Century American History Class discussed the expansionism of 1880-1910, brought about by a business-centered Manifest Destiny, Mr Malaetasi Togafau of Samoa was on hand lo present first-hand information about his country which was annexed by the linilcd States in 1896. The Samoan Islands consist of twelve islands which arc divided into /\merican'samoa and Western Samoa, Western Samoa; which is made up of five islands and which has the larger area and population, was once a possession of Germany and has now been independent since 1961. American Samoa consists of seven islands and has its capitol at the important seaport of Por,>a Poga. There has been rivalry between the two divisions of Samoa

Small College Advantageous Quite often when high school students are deciding on which colleges to apply to, they tend to apply to the larger universities without realizing the advantages of a small college. They are fascinated, when visiting a large university, by all the buildings, students and activities gdng on without realizing that these don't guarantee a good education. And they usually don't have a chance to see what goes on behind the scenes •••the students that can't find their counselors, that can't get needed outside help from their professors, and advisors and teachers who don't care whether the student passes or fails. These, in themselves, are the very reasons high school students shouldn't overlook ·the small colleges, In m1st instances, the classes in small colleges are o.f a size that the professors get to know the stu-

since the early days, which were marked with continuous battles between jealous kings, /\t the present lime, American Samoa prefers the protection of the lln.ilcd Slates since she fears the st,rength of her western neighbor. Mr Tagafau's description of the tropical islands and their warm climate brought envy into the eyes of the students from cold, wel, and windy Nebraska, The many Samoan beaches arc ideal for swimming and fishing, with temperatures ranging from lows of about 60 degrees up to highs of about 80 degrees or 90 degrees. However, he· added that they do have a couple of drawbacks on their beautiful tropical islands-the average annual rainfall is 200 inches and the average humidity is 80 per cent!

Spring Fever Creates Problems In case you haYe not noticed spring is almost here. You know what that means. SPHING FEVEH! Spring Fever is likely to create problems for some of our students. Spring is a time to be outside and enjoy nature. Teachers may soon find that students' minds are wandering and they are not concentrating on lessons Some students may hal'e year round spring fever, but for the rest of us it will soon hit, if it hasn't already. Students are not the only ones. to be affected. Teachers too may feel the effects of the highly ·infectious disease. With a little coaxing, some teachers might be persuaded to take students outside for classes, which may or may not prove to be a risky move. Once outside it might be quite difficult to get one's mind to the work at hand. It is indeed difficult to think of anyting but spring when the grass is green, leaves cover the trees, and flowers are seen here and there. To stay indoors, listening to a lecture mightpose a great temptation to a void classes. Things don't look all that bad, however as far as intellectual activities are concerned. With a determined effort and great will, a person can both stu:ly and enjoy spring. When spring fever seems about ready to strike you, don't resist! Enjoy yourself, but remember Srpingaroo and study

dents, and the students can feel free to see the professor after class if they have any questions or need extra help. The sam 3 goes for seeing their counselor for advice. The students at a small college also get to know a larger percentage of students than those who attend a large university, and they can participate in a larger number of campus activities than theymightotherwise. A few students at a small college can be very important, because a few students can be the entire school, On the other too'.'.'. hand, at a large university 150 or 200 students can be a very small minority and of no importance at all.

Cindermen Warm-Up For Outdoor Meet Jack Weyers, Peru State's ace speedster from Sterling, broke the indoor and outdoor school record in the 2-mile with a 9:14 performance at the Kansas State University Relays at Manhattan Saturday. Weyers erased Tim Hendricks' 9:26.4 indoor mark set last year at K-State, and eclipsed his own outdoor record of 9:17 established last year at the Arkansas Relays. ·rhe mile relay team set an indoor record of 3:27. The previous record was 3:34.2 set at the U of Nebr. at Omaha meet earlier this season.

COLLEGES TOO INFLEXIBLE SAYS MAYOR LINDSAY (ACP) - Colleges and universities may be too inflexible and discipline-ori.ented to respond to the pressing problems of. the day, Mayor John V. Lind· say of New York told about 1,000 presidents and deans at the annual meeting of the Asosciation of American. Colleges in Pittsburgh Pa. "Poverty, integration, defense, transportation, space exploration, economic develCJPment, and deterioration of the cities cry out for creative, interdisciplinary thinking," Mr Llndsay said. "The university with its departmental structure, seems illequipped to respond." Specifically, Mr Lindsay proposed colleges and universities develoP more programs for high risk studen_ts. He noted a recent survey of 215 institutions revealed· almost half have no such programs at all.

Defense Loans Show Drop (ACP) - Federal contribu· tions to the National Defense student loan program will drop for the first time since the program was started 10 years ago if Congress a::I0pts the proposed budget for next y(lar. The budget for fiscal 1970 would provide about $31.5 mil· lion less money for 44,000 few· er loans than in the current year . Reduction of buclget obli· gationsfor the National Defense loans from $193.4 million this year to $161,9 million. in 1970 is antidpated. The number of students receiving these loans would drop from about 442,000 to 398,000.

Co-op Housing - a Living Environment WASHINGTON (CPS).-One of the little noted facets of the student drive for independence and control over their own institu· tions is a small but growing cooperative housing movement among students and young people on campuses and in cities. Wanting to escape from do~ mitories with their "long corridors of facelessdoorsandface· less rooms," and trying to find an inexpensive way to live in a congenial group, many students have started "co-ops" ranging in size from five to fifty, Some of them have expanded from simple sharing of food and shelter to starting "free universi· ties" within their communities. Co-ops at such schools as the Universities of Michigan and Wisconsin have been running for more than 30 years. Students own more than two hundred cooperatives in the Uni· ted States, in Canada, co-ops have been built on every university campus, and Torooto alone has more than 30, One of those expanded in to Rochdale College when its residents set up classes and invited professors to teach them,

A new organization, the North American Student Cooperative League, has been set up in Washington to serve as an in· formation center for existing coops and to promote new ones. Its staff contains experts on the architecture, mechanics and psychology of co-operative liv· ing; and it is holding a coo· ference next week for students who want to learn more about setting up a co-op. The League's director, Norman Glassman, who defines a cooperative as "a living environment owned and operated by the people who Iive in it," thinks universities "will .become more free as the space in which stu· dents live becomes more free," He says the cooperative housing movement has grown as stu, dents realize that owning their own "space," rather than living in administration - controlled space like dormitories, is ama~ jor step toward changing their education. They choose coopera ti ves, rather than one- or twoman apartments, because "they want to learn to live and share with other human beings." The movement, Glassman 0

thinks grew out of the same frustration that motivated the hippies to establish communities, and was influenced bytheir "communitarianism." Cooperatives do not take af· ter hippie communities when it comes to property-sharing, however. Most have some commoo space in a large house and share food and cleaning chores, but few hold all money and property in common, Most on college campuses are .. not co-ed, either--01'ten because college rules forbid such housing for students. This Glassman calls unfortunate-after all, "men need to learn how to live with women," and most of them never learn that. The co-op housing movement may turn into' a boom, as even the federal government recog· nizes its legitimacy. The In· ter Cooperative Council at the University of Michigan recent· Iy received a $1 million loan from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to build a cooperative residence - mark· ing the first time HUS has given money to a student group to build student housing.

Library Expanding At the present time, the magazine section in the basement of the library is being expanded from the present two rooms into a third multi-purpose room. The reason for this is to create a needed room for the latest issues of the magazines. Also in this multjrpurpose room will be a cuni'culum li· brary for those students in their professional semester, an elementary library and additional room for study. The card cata• logue for these books will be in the multi-purpose room, in· stead of with the other books in the regular card catalogue on the main floor. Plans are· also being made to, over the summer, improve the lighting in most of the basement.

Vacation Too Short The reason Peru State College does not have a spring vacation is because they get out much earlier 'than most schools. We may be getting cheated out of our vacation, The college should give us a little more vacation at Easterbecausethere are many students WOO live all over the United states and they do not get a chance like other:; do to go lx>me a~ time they want. Many of them have to skip some of there classes in order to get home and see their family. If the school would al· low a few more days · they would be in the class rooms going to school like they are suppose to be doing. I think it is up to the student body to aehieve this goal., ,, • , , , ",

In the past fifty ~rs the teaching profession has changed tremendously, The oocument below was 'given to the idalio Education News by Supt. John Snyder, Sandpoint Idaho, This is an agreement between Miss Lottie Smith, teacher, and the Board of Education of the Dry River School. For teaching a perioo of eight months beginning September 1, 1923the Board of Education agrees· to pay Miss Lottie Smith too sum of seventy- · five dollars per month. Miss Lottie Smith agrees: 1. Not to get married, This contract becomes null and void immediately if the teacher marries, 2. Not to keep coffillany with men, · 3, To be home between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 6:ooa.m. unless she is attending a school function. · 4. Not to loiter downtown in the ice cream parlor. 5, Not to . leave town at any time without the permission of the chairman of the school board. 0

6. Not. to smoke cigar:ettes. This contract becomes null and void immediately if the teacher is found sinokjng, 7. Not to drink beer, wine, or whisky, This conj;ract becomes void immediately if the teacher is found drin15ing. 8, Not to ride in a carriage of automobile with any man except her brother or father. 9. Not to dress·- iii· bnght colors or to dye her hair. 10. To wear at least two petticoats. · fl. Not to wear dressed more than two inches above.the ankle. 12. Not to use face powder mascara, ?r paint the lips, 13. To keep the schoolroom clean; to sweet the classroom floor at least once daily; to scrub the classroom floor once a week with hot water and soap; to clean the blackboards at least once daily· to start the fire at 7:00 a~m.; so the room will bewarmat8:00 a.m. when thechildrenarrive;to carry out the ashes at least once daily.

ABM Spells TROUBLE With soaring inflation, most· ly due to the expensive Vietnam War and an expanding defense and arms race, the United states· is adding another hotissue to the already roaring inferno-namely a proPosed anti-ballistic missile system. Nixon has taken a position to build a thin "Safeguard" system which has rekindled antagonism throughout the coun· try. Critics al'g\le that the system is unnecessary since it would defend only a part of the U.S. deterrent ICBM's, and the U.S. would still have its strategic bomber force and nuclear· p<iwered Polaris submarines. They also say that ~t is unproved, and after costing bi.I· lions it may be worthless or become"obsolete before com· pletion · Besides ruining the domestic programs because ¢ its tremendous c.ost, it might provoke the Russians and also ruin negotiations oo the nuc· Iear noo-proliferatlon treaty and intensify the arms race. But not building the system might prove them costly ·and deadly! Last week, Defense Secretary Laird startled a . few complacent citizens with

the information that the Russia.Qs have gone ahead to install hundreds of giant intercontinental ballistic missiles, each of which can deliver up to 25-megatO(l warheads compared to the one-megaton U.S. missiles. He estimates that 500 of ·these missiles ·will have been deployed by ·1975, whlch could render the U.S. inca~ble of responding to a Soviet attack. Perhaps the U.S. should play the missile game like a game of football where all good· es know that the best offense is a good defense!.

BIZ Battles The battle is on! The home laundry market is churning with a new line of stain removers called enzyme presoaks. Competition in presoaks has locked two giant soapmak:ers, Procter &· Gamble and Colgate-Palmolive, in a classic marketing battle. To promote Procter's BIZ, TV is being flooded with sport commericals showing Actor EQ.die Albert using the product to remove stubborn berry stains. For Colgate's AXION, TV spots star Arthur Godfrey holding up a bloodied table napkin or a chilQ.' s dress stained by chocolate ice cream and demonstrating how AXION helps clean thf;lm. , The oresoak battle began when BIZ was tested in Syracuse in 1967 and found a surprisingly strong market, BIZ and AXION then competed in Omaha, the soap industry's other key test market. Next, AXION samples were mailed to 50 million of the nanation' s 60 million households, and BIZ followed suit. AXION has jumped into a commanding lead largely by moving into more major cities before BIZ. The total market now is $60 million a year and growing so fast that other companies are rushing to grab a share. The two major private testing services disagree' on the effectiveness of presoaks-one·' concluded that they did little · better than regular detergents in removing stains and the other found that they helped turn out a brighter, whiter wash. In any case, by adding another step and another product to the laundry process, wa·shday chores grow longer and costlier!

Letter to the Editor Colleges and universities in America are liberalizing rapidly today. Harrard and Yale are in the process of abo.lish· ing R.O. T.C. and co-education· alizing. Here, at Peru, there has not been the R.O.T.C. program and Peru has been co-educational since its birth in· 1867. Then, is Peru in. the van of the new era? . "Not really" might be the answer. · Students, today, are getting power over even the administration issue. One Peru Campus, how much of a voice a student can express? One can express his idea through the Ped by just sending a ietter to the office, Education Building 314. How· ever, the idea will be on the paper .is not guaranteed. Students can use the means of the Complaint Committee of the Student Center Board. Moreover there are quite a· few bulletin boards en Campus on which the students might ·be able to express their opinions. How!lver, in · which case, one is required to get permission. Therefore students are restricted on what they can , express through bu~letin boards. So here I ask a bulletin board t<i be made just for students somewhere on Campus so that students can express their re. · quests; complaints, schedules of informal meeting~, political opinions, etc. Kim Y amahira

Bob Cousy Boston College guard Billy Evans remembers the cold December day Bob Cousy walked into the dressing room and told his team. "He said that he was sorry but this was going to be his last season as coach," Evans recalled.

Boston wanted to win so badly for Cousy that today the Eagles are National Invitational Tournament runnersup. Whipping off 19 straight victories, BC provided an exit for a basketball c o a c h in g career unmatched since St. John's won the NIT for Joe Lapchick four years ago. "Twenty years from now when he talks about his great thrills in basketball and he r e m e m b e r s Red Auerbach and Bill Russell and the Celtics, maybe he'll remember the team that almost won the NIT," says Billy Evans. "I'd like that. That would make it all worthwhile."

A music anddrama program will be presented in the College Auditorium at 2:30. Between 2 and 5 p.m. residence halls will be open for visitors and refreshments will be servect in the Student Center. The college dinningroom Will also be open from noon Until 1:30 p.m. for Sunday dinner. All academic facilities will be open and all college departments will be staffed with instructors who will answer questions;


Here is a question for all of you students to think about. WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE CULTURAL INTERESTS AT PERU? By cultural interests I mean such activities as a pianist, the dancers, the singers and the poetic figures as Edgar Allen Poe. And before you answer, let me do it for· you. After speaking with some of the college students, I have come to the conclusion of either too much homework on these convo nights or no appreciation ·for this type of entertainment. The first, being too much homework can usually mean a test plus other class assignments. This cannot be helped as teachers really don't think students will go to these convos plus the fact that every teacher piles on work thinking their class is the ONLY one we are taking. This issue has been brought up before so nothing new can be said. Lack of appreciation is the next and probably the most truthful explaination. We have never really learned to accept and appreciate something good when we have it, and if this was not good- it ...would have been..... "shut-off'' along time ago. This is what we should remember - that· if it wasn't good it would have never lasted. And if you think it's for the birds- start tweeting because SOMEDAY we will wish we knew something to do for entertainment as we are· too old to do the jerk and too young to die.

Have today's morals really gone to the dogs? Everyday we hear about a new obscenity in our society. A few weeks ago it was the lead singer of the Doors who practiced indecency in front of a large crowd. Everyday we hear such items over newsbroadcast across the country. Everyone seems to be shocked and a bit mortified when they hear such things, and they might remark, "What is this world coming to!" Yes» if we examine history we could find that such things have been existence since the world began. America started by the Puritans saying, "Sex is sin/' since then Americans have put sex in the closet. They take a peak at it when they sit in a dark theater and watch a "dirty" movie. If we go back to King Herod's time we would see .belly dancers. They might cause a ga?P from America since they are indecently exposed. If we move on to Africa we find some women walking around without blouses. After examining other countries America seems to have pretty high morals. The fact that morals have gone to the ·dogs might be due to the publicity. Although, it is true that some youth who listen to the news and hear that morals have gone to the dogs might reflect, "Why not join the crowd." It is time for Americans to take sex out of the closet and teach their children about it in the right way. Children should not learn about sex on street corners or in dark theaters. Keep those who practice obscenities in the minority group.


Letters to the Editor



C.\\'(TO %S

iH~ N?!Tm~~5


Parents Blamed For Current Mess Children raised in a sober, studious, courteous, and Godfearing home will grow up to · be sober, studious, courteous, and God-fearing adults in nintynine times out of a hundred. And conversely, children raised by drunken, shiftless, and uninterested parents will probably grow up to be exactly that same type of drunken, shiftless, and uninterested parent themselves. Dr. Max Rafferty insists that: "Most youthful delinquencies go back to mom and pop, one way or another. Parental indifference, laziness and just plain stupidity sow the seeds which blossom into the evil flowers we see blooming in almost every headline these days," Parental errors are numerous, but several cause major problems detrimental to current society. First, parents do not know where their children are; and they also have a ridiculous faith that somehowtheir children will turn out alright, Next, parents give their children far too much money and then never bother to see how it is spent; and they also find it easy to give orders and threats butnever carry them out, Possibly, the most grevious error is thatthey set terrible examples; they preach against drinking and smoking and carousing but endulge freely themselves.

Parents want happy homes and delightful children, but they do not want to become overly involved with them. . Most certainly, they do not want to exert any effort on their part or to divert any time from their own leisurely activities, Consequently, parents are blamed for the loose morals of the present generation because they refuse togivetheir childr.en the traditional rules and dishonor, and good and evil should be taught from agethree; and these traits should be enforced by rewarding virtue and punishing sins. Children should be required to earn the money given them by thPir parents, and only moderate amounts should be given. And remember parents, the only way to fight a winning battle is to show your children how to live and not to TELL them. Parents need to start now to fight this current mess, Parents need to set up strict rules on conduct and behavior and stick to theni. aight and wrong, honor -of morality' modesty. sfinpfe decency and to enforce the rules justly and swiftly, Since parents turn loose their children with plenty of money in cities teeming with addicts and pushers, they are also blamed for. the campus violence.

Dear Editor: Out here in the purest tulies, some 70 miles from any recog· nizable action, somebody is proPosing Spring Week. The sched• uled format has not been releas eel and it's pretty hard to tell if it will be a dud or a sue• cess, right now •. Most students refer to Peru as the entertainment arm pit of Nebraska col leges. It's true. Now, at lea one group is trying to put an end to the dead calendar by makin this an annual thing. Everyone has doubts, like al· ways, but they make the com• parison with things that have happened in the past. It isn't fair, but it's the most logical approach (and the only one, real· ly). The Art Club worked its gut out to get the film series going, It still has a chance because the stuff is wild and they haven't completely given up like most. Just what DO the people wa.1t around here. Everyone com•. plains. Nobody has ideas. It happens on all campusses, but not like this one. When most people visit anoth· ·er school, they suddenly come to the realization that students (at the other school) are getting more out of college. The stud· ent body is constantly psyched and getting new activities started in order to keep people com· ing back. Peru needs ITSELF · first, not any famous nam.~s. Steve Good


Another First In Heart Surgery


The first artificial heart im· plant in a human at Baylor University, Houston, Texas, on April 5 may be an even greater medical milestonethan the first human heart transplant more than two years ago. An artificial heart that can function on its own and can become a permanent replacement would save many victims of heart dis· ease and damage that cannot be saved with heart transplants because of a shortage of donors and -.the rejection process. The National Heart Institute admits several major problems such as finding suitable materials, developing a long-lived power source to drive the heart, and developing an implantable control mechanism that could adjust the rate of the pump to the body's needs. Artificial hearts now depend on an external energy source. Cr. (C,o~:'~,on €age 6)

The Student Center Board is sponsoring a student art r view to be held in conjunctio with Spring Week. A list i provided on the balcony of th Fine Arts Center for thos who wish to enter, The work will be judged according to th limited amount of space in th building, so you are asked list preference with each wor submitted.

Drawing and painting will be shown during the first days, with pottery and sculpture to follow.

Mason Williams is a successful TV writer; he was the head writer for the Smothers Broth· ers Show during 1967 and 1968 when a host of new methods and devices were introduced. Williams is also a composer; his "Classical Gas" won a Gammy award last month as the outstanding pop tune in 1968. He is additionally, an accom~ pli shed guitarist and a pop artist and is, most recently, an author of a new anthology of verse and musings which has sold 49,500 copies. Williams' art is based on artlessness and deliverate anti• p.retension. "I would rather move through a lot of small ideas than play out one long thing forever. I am not making any huge mark, butllike speed," says W'llliams. His verse is pure and plain; take, for exampl~ the way he describes the network. censor: Snips Out The rough talk The unpop.ilar ojnion Or anythinc: 'h teeth And rende.-, A pattern of ideas Full of holes A doily For your mind The painfully simple poetry can be explained in part by Williams' early life: "I taught myself everything I have ever done. I spent a lot of time alone as a kid and got to the point where I would try anything by myself. I just never considered that tliere were any limitations." His ambition to become an insurance actuary ceased after watching the fun a fellow boarder at a Los Angeles rooming house had in playing jazz piano; consequently he went to Okla· homa City College as a music; major. After he had taught himself the guitar, he quit school and formed a folk group and a little later met another young guitarist named Tommy · Smothers. That led to the parody presidential campaign of another Smothers Show colleague, Pat Paulsen, who was master-minded by Williams. Williams is also a virtuoso of sublime happenings. His attempt to film history's largest "sunflower" being traced by a skywriter failed, but he explained: "The idea wasn't to see it, really. The idea was for people to hear about it and say, 'Yes," His philosophy is ooe of joy which is summed up in his own words: Isn't life beautiful Isn't life gay Isn't life the perfect thing To pass the time away.

The picture you saw on this page in the last edition was a big fake. But rest easy, you students of the bomb -. It was not the blast that wlped out Hiroshima, but a picture of the first hydrogen mistake that checked off an island over a mile wide in the Pacific. The United States sponsored the test. That's why all the groovy ships are hanging around (look close). The whole thing really freaked-out the sailors. And every dove in the countrygotout his cardboard and magic mark· ers. Anyhow, the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima was an air blast exploded above the ground, not on the ground. That way, all the radiation spread out, but the initial effect wasn't as bad.

You have heard of the cup that overflowed. This is the story of a rocket that is like that cup only larger- it is an invisible rocket. Eve~yone hlis one. It is always with us. It determines how we feel a!Xmt ourselves, about others,andhow we get along with people. Have you ever experienced a series of ve:ry favorable things which made you want to be good to people for a week? Wheri this happens your fucket is full to overflowing, A bucket can be filled by a lot of things that happen, When a person .speaks to you, recognizing you as a human being, your rocket is filled a littleeven more if he calls you by name, If he compliments you on your dress or on ajobwelldone the level in your rocket goes up still higher. There must be a million ways to raise the level in another's rocket. But, remember, this is a 1heo:ry about a bucket and a d~pper • Other people have dippers and they can get their dipper in your rocket. Let's say I am having lunch at a restaurant and inadvertently 11.l!set a malt that spills' all over the table and onto a girl's skirt I am .embarrassed, "Bright eyes across the table says, "You upset your malt."

You say to a person whose bucket is empty, "That's a pretty tie ~ou haye,:' and he may reply m an rrntated, defensive way "What's the matter with mY tie now?" The story of our lives is the interplay of the rocket and the dipper. Every0ne has both, The secret of the rocket and the-dipper is that when you fill another's rocket it does not take anything out of your own rocket. The level in our own rocket gets higher when we fill another's and, on the other hand, when we dip into another's bucket we do not fill our own-we lose a little. Sometimes we canprotectourselves by saying, "Hey you have you dip12er in my rocket!" or, "We are getting our dippers in his bucket," Instead we can say, "Let's fill his rocket" and in doing this, experience th~ mystery of the dipper and the bucket!

As I look out my window, I come to the astounding realization that spring has finally arrived at Peru. The wind has a warm feeling to it, for the first time since last fall. The grass is a beautiful, and welcome, shade of green and the trees are starting to leaf out, an inviting change from the grays and bromis of winter. Birds are everywhere and their songs blend to create a glorious chorus. The squirrels run to and fro, up trees and down trees, and across the street and back. With spring come the cars. The cars driving back and forth on the street, hint that there is something more fun to do than study.· Shorts are the order of the day and sweaters and wind breakers replace the heavy winter coats. Spring has arrived in all its glory. The countryside is coming alive, as are the students, although it might be a temptation to neglect studies. Glo:ry be to spring!

P.S.C. Awarded Contract Peru State College has been awarded the cootract as the institution to carry the Head Start Supplementary Training Program for lhe state of Nebraska. The $37,743 grant is a 25 per cent increase above last year's. With the new contract lhe program will be expanded to include classes at Loup City and Chadron as well as at Lincoln, Omaha, and lhe Thurstoo County Indian Reservation. Included in the Grantarefunds available for hiring an assistant to Dr. Rex Shelley as Project Manager. In following the practices of· other states, Dr. Shelley will hire a student assistant. Through the course of the year, this assistant would be paid about $2,000. He or she would be allowed to carry a full load, and at the sam!l time gain valuable experience. Since this program is highly involved with meeting the needs of individuals, certain charac· teristics are desirable for the person interested in this P<>si· tion. The student must be able to meet people well and be flexible when facing people of different races, backgrounds, and value standards. Hopefully, he will be interested in working with the disadvantaged. A person who likes to be where the action is and can accept others feelings, emotions, and points of view. The student must be able to work not only with the paraprofessionals of the community but also with the professional people, administra· tors, college professors and faculty, He must be inclined to counsel career choices.

ings. .The Head Start Supplementary Training is a college oriented demonstration of the new careers philosophy. Three basic purposes of the program are: 1 - To provide college edu· cation and training to full year Head Start Employees so they may become more skilled and responsible in their Head Start work. 2 - To provide these same people with an opportunity for in creased earning power and job security. 3 To provide an arena for col· lege and university change in teaching methods and curricula v.hich will affect institutional changes to meet the needs of low income people. Any student interested in applying for this position should contact Dr. Shelley, Project Manager.

It is a necessity that the studenthave a driver's license and preferably his own car because this program involves a great deal of travel. The student should also, if possible, be-avail· able to go to so_menationalmeet·
