Mike from Peru to Guam It was a cold, dull, day. Snow was ankle deep and the sky was gray. It was getting late and I hadn't had breakfast but I thought a walk would be what I needed. A few cars were skidding on one of the steeper streets to the canpus and several children were going out of their way to trudge through some drifts. I saw this and knew I didn't have a job. I walked to the far end of the canpus and kicked the snow off my shoes on clean cement steps.

Our Cover 1he cover picture, showing President Neal S.

Gomon and student Hugo Villegas, Lima, Peru, S.A., plus this page containing a story about Villegas and one about Mike Damiano, a 1967 graduate, illustrates an i.q:>ortant fact about Peru State College. The college's influence is spread far wider than the confines of the U.S.A., an influence which should continue to grCNV as more and more of our graduates scatter around the globe. They in turn wil 1 influence other foreign students to enroll. This diversity in enrollment is an educational ~set in itself.

to Peru from Peru According to available records, there has been a i:>eru Stater 1 ike Peruvian Hugo Villegas. Hugo is both a Peruvian by birth and ru:id by college choice, but it is the place of hi:;; birth--Peru, South America--which makes him unique among all those who have trod the Campus of a Thousand (}:i.ks. Why did Hugo, a native of Lima, Peru, anct a lad whose father has fanning interests totaling about 20,000 acres, select Peru State College? "Because I'm from Peru" is the reason he gives on his information card. That is one reason. The other is his brotherin-1 aw, a Nebraskan, who told him of life in the Cornhusker state and how friendly the people are. Hugo arrived in the United States in July 1966~ and spent the_ 1966-67 school year studying English at the American Language Institute at New York University. TI1e Institute attracts students fran throughout the world. The. fall of 1967 ~ound Hugo enrolling at Peru State in a general science curriculum Eventually he pl.ans to transfer to a school of veterinary ~dicine so that he can prepare himself to assist his father with his farming interest. . A _graduate of Ramon Castilla High school in ~ma i!1 1964, Hugo studied pre-veterinary medicine in the Agronomy Academy in Lima for one ear. Th~ huge farming; operations of his father, <;>cate~ in the mountains 500 miles northwest of ~ima, mclu?-e cattle, sheep and vegetable raising, employing about 60 workers. Included in the holdings are mining interests. ~ile ;in higl; school, Hugo was a member of Peru s national high school soccer team which canpeted with other national teams from other South American countries. Last year he played on the New York University soccer team, When asked if soccer is more exciting than football, Hugo gave a resounding "Oh, yes it is!" He ~dded that. he would like to play football as a kicker, adding "anywhere you want it kicked, I can put the ball." Duri~g Christmas vacation this year, Hugo was a _gt!est m the h~e of Donald D. Buskirk in Springfield, Nebr, Wlnle there he was introduced to Dr. O.E. Pfeifer, David City veterinarian. Hugo spent two 1'.3.YS "following him around," which made the Peruvian al 1 the more sure that he is headed in the ~ight direction in his professional choice. With Crale Hansen, Onaha, Hugo has organized a Karate and Judo Club at Peru State. With a membership of 12, including three girls, Crale teaches Karate and Hugo the Judo. 1he future for Hugo: eventually he'll transfer from i:>eru -- P~ri: State, that is, to a school of veterinary medicine, and then its back to those farming interests in Peru--Lima, that is! n~ver


Damp Season for Spring Sports Quartet In a tyPical Nebraska spring, the weather ~~ a disappointing factor in the Peru State spring sports picture.

Injury, Inexperience Leave Cage Season with 12-14 Tab The disadvantages of extreme inexperience and a key injury erased a fast start by the Peru State basketball team and tumbled the 'Cats to a canpaign record of 12 wins and 14 losses. Peru State rolled to six.,wins in their first seven games despite using three freshmen starters. ~tween the seventh and eighth games, disaster struck when senior George Moore suffered a severe ankle injury taking the 6'7" smooth-working fivot out of action until near the tail end o the season when he made sport appearances. Moore's injury forced the Bobcats to go with · four freshmen starters, and despite moments of brilliance the trail was downhill. Peru and Hastings tied for third and fourth in the Nebraska College Conference behind league-winning Wayne State and runnerup Chadron. Qi.e bright spot in the season was a home court conquest over Wayne State, a team that lost only two regular season game~ and represented NA~ District 11 in the national NAIA tourney rn Kansas City. Junior Wayne Heine led Peru in scoring with an 18. 7 mark. The four frosh all averaged 9. 2 points per game or better. Of t;hose ~o saw action in the spring semester portion of the season, only George Moore will be lost by graduation. If the others return for the 1968-69 campaign, the prospects, and hopefully the results, will be brighter. Season's Scores: Peru Score, first column __ _ S6 Tarkio 92 McPherson 97 Kan.

Gomon Speaks at Joint

Meeting of Lincoln-Omaha Peruvians at 'Pilgrimage' Speaking at a joint !Tl:!eting of the Lincoln and chapters of the Peru AlUIIU1i Association Sunday, April 28, Dr. Neal S. Gomon, Peru State College President, forecasted that the 101-yearold institution would become a multipurpose college. The Peru State president cited the $100 million Consumer Public Power District atomic energy plant under construction near Bro.vnville as the factor wh~ch will bring "unprecedented development in this area. " The "Pilgrimage to Peru" dinner meeting in the Peru State College Student Center, which attracted nearly 100 alumni and friends, concluded All-College Open House activities at the Campus of a Thousand Oaks. In citing the future industrial growth in Southeast Nebraska, Dr. Ganon said that Peru State would have to meet the demands for technical training as well as continue leadership in teacher education and liberal arts. Although Peru State is growing in enrollment, Dr. Gomon pointed out that quality has nothing to do with size. The college's future growth will be related to its ability to provide housing for students. Dr. W. A. Schindler, '21, Lincoln, chapter president, presided at the meeting. Mrs. Maxine Russell Moore, '63, 4220 S. Clifford drive, Lincoln, was re-elected secretary of the chapter. Art Brophy, â&#x20AC;˘ 49, 1835 Ryons, Lincoln, was elected new chapter president.

Grads, Former Students Continue Sup~ort Figures disc~osed at the ann~al SJJ.ring rreeting of the Peru Achieverrent Foundation, May 3, reveal that the PAF has an opportunity to take another step forward this year if co~tributions cont~nue at about the same rate the next eight months. · During ca_lendar 1967, the Foundation ~ad receipts of sbghtly more than _$18,000, Receipts of more than $6 1 000 for the first four months of calendar 1968 were reported by treasurer A.V. larson. . Members of the Foundation's board of directors were unanimous in their desire not only to equal but to surpass last year's record receipts this year· As one board member put it, "anything less would be a step backward, and a. s~p backward requires two steps to get ahead again. Eleven scholarships from restricted funds, ranging from $50 to $150, and ten $100. Alurttr}1 Scholarships (twice the number authodrifzed thin 1967) from general funds were a 11 ocate or e 1968-69 academic year. furing the 1967-68 academic year, 84 scholarships, totaling $6 , 912. 45, were awarded through the Foundation to 84 Peru State students.

At Peru State, Gilmore was a 60-minute football player at offensive tackle, defensive tackle, and defensive middle guard.

Elmer Rm Burkey Recalls First Introduction to Peru

Elmer R.. Birkey, '08, : ~9, writes from 360 East Granthne, Tracy, Calif., of the reception he and Mrs. Birkey received at Peru in summer school of 1906. "We '"'.ere both teaching in the Henderson schools and decided to attend the summer session at Old Peru. When we arrived the day before the school began we started to register at which time we discovered that we were up against a rather new circums ~ance, namely, that there were no places where married couples could room and board. All such places were either for males only, or females only. Mr. Redmond, the registrar, said he did not know what to do, and appealed to President Crabtree. Sine~ it was ~ate in the day, Mr. Crabtree, after talking to his wife, said that we were to stay at their_ place until the next day when he was sure things could be worked out. "1he following day we were called into the President's office and he asked if it would be acceptable to us if they would fix up a room in ~he basement of one of the buildings and we said it wo~ld. So they furnished a lovely room. . .We told him that would be fine, but what about meals? Mr. Crabtree said that had been taken care of. We were to take our meals in Mount Vernon and eat at the table where fac.ol ty members ate. . Living in one of the basement rooms and ea ting with sane of the faculty in the girl_s' dormitory, was, for Mrs. furkey and myself quite an enjoy?ble experience -- our introdµction to wonderful Campus of a Thousand Oaks.

These two large island groups along with Polynesia were a far away place called Oceania, a third of the way around the world. To the north of Guam was Japan, to the south, Australia, to the west the Philippines, to the east nothing. About three weeks later Al said, 'You got one, Mike." "Good, Al, I could use some mail. " Al was the mailman A nice guy. He knew people. Everyone liked Al. "It's from Guam," he called. I opened the letter there in the post office. I filled out the application forms and had college transcripts forwarded. Three weeks later I found I had been accepted and air line tickets were on the way. I had a million questions to ask and no one to answer them. "'Guam .. " I thought. I'd never even been on a plane before. I visited the library. Thirteen degrees north of the equator. Two seasons, wet dry, Official 1 anguage, English. Natives speak Chamorro, are of Spanish descent. I thought '"the children are bilingual!" Beads of sweat formed on my forehead, Teaching of English as a secor:id language raced through my mind. I knew nothing about it. I just signed a two year contract. I'd better find out. What does one take to the tropics? Would I• I need shots, passport? The Airlines could tell me , A month later I was flying first class. My bag was beside me on the next seat. 1hat's all I took I had shipped the books I would need. · The flight stopped off at Honolulu. I had always wanted to see the campus of the University of Hawaii.

The pl ace was a cross between a monastery and an army base. Their famed East-West Center had cost millions. It was beautiful with miniature gardens, fore:lgn students from all through the orient, rich sensuous evenings, rice and eggs for breakfast and a short ride to the beaches. The flight to Guam was great. Qi the plane, there were the Peace Corp and VISfA people also on their way to the trust territories of the Marshalls and l\hrians. We crossed the International Date-Line, lost a day, flew for another thousand miles and landed on Guam. It was raining as I left the plane. I was glad to be here in Micronesia. Perhaps the rain was a preview to the island's educational problems: standardized tests built from population saniples from the mainland, shortage of teachers, children with severely restricted ex-

periences and speaking only their native tongue and over-crowded class rooms. Guam is good. Their motto is "Where America's Day Begins. " The mountains are high with steep twisting roads that winds from village to village, The Guamanian loves fiesta. The sun is warm and so are the people. The sun and people work well together. How does one teach in a different culture? Shall I make it easy and simply forget about their unique little traditions and culture and simply impose my own. I had a choice to make. I was assigned a fifth grade class. We got together and wrote a poem for the school paper. Our A B C s of Guam A is for Agat, our village so nice B is for Bats, our flying mice C is for Christian, of''which we came to be D is for Democracy, the government of the free E is for Equatorial Current that warms us yearly F is for Families that we love dearly G is for Governor, Guerrero by name H is for Hymn, also of fame I is for Island in waters so blue J is for Jesuits, our teachers too K is for Keng's a store near by L is for Liberation Day that falls in July M is for M~r~anas of which we belong N is for Nimitz who fought for Guam 0 is for Ocean, surrounds us all round P is for Post Office, important in town Q is for Quata, a spanking for most R is for Rota, an island so close S is for Sasa, a river we know T is for Taotao Mona, first people no more U is for United, the States we tr~st V is for Vacation, the best for us W is for War, of which we don't care X is for the Unknown, for which we prepare Y =!-S for Yam and so good to eat Z is for Zori, fun for our feet .

Blue skies smiled on Peru State's Homecoming October 19, alleviating fears that torential rains experienced earlier in the week would dampen the festivities. The Industrial ArtsClub won first place in the organization display contest with their "'Tower over Chadron," a 34-foot replica of the Eiffel Tower from Paris. Workin& around the theme, "The World and its Countries, the IA Clug edged out Alpha Mu Omega, honorary mathematics fraternity, which placed second in the competition, while third place was taken by the Student Center Board. Alumni from throughout Nebraska were joined by Peruvians from Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Colorado, Michigan, and Idaho for alumni day events. The 47th annual event featured the 1943 class reunion, the Homecoming play, "U.S.A." an alumni coffee hour after the PertM-Chadron game, and the Homecoming dance Saturday night. During balloting for 1968-69 alumni officers on Saturday, Charles Stoner, '67, Auburn High school instructor and coach, was elected president of the Peru Alumni Association.Other officers elected were Nancy Jarvis, '67, Treynor, Iowa, first vice-president; Karen Rathe Estes, '66, Cook, second vice-_presiden t; La Verna Roos Sayer, '61, Springfield, secretary, and Lucille Russell Hicks, '60, Auburn, treasurer. Halftime of the game saw Miss Jody Meyer, N eh aw ka senior, presented as the 29th queen of a Peru State Homecoming. Her attendants were Kathy Buffum, Magnolia, Iowa; Bobette Masters, Nebraska City; Betty O'Connor, Worcester, Mass., and Lynda Shanahan, Morse Bluff. The loss to the Chadron State Eagles was the only darkness in an otherwise perfect day. Trailing 33-21 late in the fourth quarter, the Bobcats were not about to give up as they went over for a touchdown with four seconds showing on the scoreboard clock. The final: 33-28, Chadron over Peru.











Total Askings $3,777,223 for College Operations CAPITAL CONSTRUCTION REQUEST

Requests for improvement of present programs and the establishment of new projects, allowances for average salary increases for both professional and non-professional staff members, ancl a capital construction program highlight the projected plans of Peru State College with regard to the 1969-71 biennium. The college has requested $3,777 ,223 for colleg~ operation. during the next t_wo years, accordmg to President Neal S. Gomon. This request has been approved by the governing board of state colleges and has been transmitted to the office of Governor Norbert Tiemann. Included in the proposed budget is a total of $589,337 for the" improvement of present programs; $99,431 for additional staff and other expenses created by anticipated increased e!_lrollments; $21,336 for expanded services, and $76, 480 for new _P.rograms. The -bulk of the budget proposal, $2,990,649, is slated for the continuation of existing programs at the same level of enrollment (1244 students) recognizing average salary increases of 6% for professional and 4% for non-professional staff members each year of the biennium. This total also includes anticipated increased costs of services and goods, and reducing the studentteacher ratio to recommended norms. The college's request for capital construction during the coming biennium, which has also been approved by the governing board, totals some $3,263,775. This package will next be submitted to the 1969 legislature. Included in the proposed building program are seven projects. Top priority is for funds to meet new fire safety: regulations covering all existing academic and housing facilities with a price tag of $193,431. Plans include a complete overhaul of the campus water system with additional fire hydrants as needed, additions to fire alarm and protection systems and installation of improved containment barriers in all buildings. Other -requests in order of priority are: remodeling and renovation of the Hoyt Science Hall, $309, 786; construction of a new health and physical education building and student health center, $1,329,775; remodeling and renovation of the T.J. Majors Education building(former Campus School), $605,992; and addition to the library, $422,685; installation of the first phase of a central air -conditioning system, $273 064; and development of physical education outdaor fadlities and extension of Oak Bowl seating, $129,042. The present gymnasium is to be razed and replaced by a new health and physical education building at a new location. The new facility will include adequate space for both men's and women's physical education programs, a multipurpose swimming area and space for student health services. The Education building is to be completely renovated and air-conditioned for expansion of home economics, business education, education and instructional media plus general classroom facilities for other _programs. Proposed is a 3"-story 100x50' addition to the library which will provide an additional 15,000 square feet of floor space for student study areas, a processing area for new books and periodicals, seminar rooms, reference areas, improved stack areas, browsing rooms, instructional media and instructional materials facilities. â&#x20AC;˘Peru State College requests conform to the 4

IS $3,263,775

6-year building program presented to the 1965 legislature," President Gomon said. "Only deviations are in the renovation of the Education building for strictly college purposes as opposed to rehabilitation for the laboratory school which was in operation at that time, and the combining of a men s and women's health and physical education building, initially recommended as separate facilities."

Fall Enrollment Climbs To Record 1244 Students OMAHA UNIVERSITY MERGER MAY HAVE CUT ENROLLMENT Another all-time enrollment record has been set at Peru State College with 1244 students registered for on-campus classes . for the fall 1968 term. This figure represents a 4. 73 increase over a year ago when the previous record high was set with 1186 students. Originally expecting an enrollment of some 1300 students, officials point out the July I merger of Omaha University with the University of Nebraska may have hurt the enrollment somewhat. The number of freshmen and transfer students ~rom Douglas and Sarpy counties is down from a year ago. Men students outnumber women 764 to 478. There are 422 freshmen of whom 290 are men and 132 women; 258 sophomores of whom 165 are men and 93 are :worn.en; 259 juniors with 136 men and 123 women; 278 â&#x20AC;˘seniors with 167 men and Ill women; 25 unclassified including 6 men and 19 women. Forty- two Nebraska counties are represented in the total. Students are enrolled from 22 other states, the District of Columbia, and American Samoa, Egypt, Japan, the West Indies, and Peru, Soutli America.

Trumpet Playing Family Affair The Joiner family was the subject of a feature story in the April 23 Nebraska City News-Press. It told how Oliver "Bill" Joiner was the third generation of his family to play trumpet. Bill's grandfather, Oliver Joiner, Sr., a self-taught musician, passed the love for music on to Oliver Joiner, Jr., '49, who became a trumpet player. Mr. Joiner was a music teacher for 12_ years and is now superintendent of schools at Monroe, Iowa. Oliver "Bill" Joiner, a 1968 grad, is teaching instrumental music at Avoca, Iowa.

Pride gratitude,, ~d. interest toward the college neve~ seem to d1mm1sh.

Spring Sports Scene Marked By Outstanding Individual Events No ?~ampionships came to Peru ~tate in spring competition, but several outstanding individual efforts should be recognized. Leading the Nebraska College Conference at the !11idway point, coach Joe Pelisek's baseballers spht a double~ header with Kearney State and dropped two games to Chadron State to finish the NCC season with a 4-4 mark and make the final Peru State rec:ord 10-11. During the season, the Bo beats lost six games by one run, including all four conference defeats. Pitchers Bill Everhart a junior from Bedford, Iowa, and Jim Rains, ~ sophomore from Granite City, Ill., were named to t~e NC_C ~ll-~ta~ team ~long with Peru's leading hitter, JUillor mfielder Jim Waltke, Beatrice. . Coach Erv Pitts' golf team wound up the year ~th a 2-8 match recoTd and a fourth-place finish m the NCC meet. Only one senior, Mike Barsi of Macomb, Ill., was lost by ~aduation. Sopliomore tennis star Don Wiechec of North Tonawanda, N.Y . won twelve straight matches without a loss to 1ead Peru to a 7-2 record and a fourth-place finish in the NCC meet. After losing their first two matches of the year, the Bobcats reversed their form and won seven in a row. Seniors David LaMontagne, Kankakee, Ill., and Kathy Welch, Omaha, will not return. Miss Welch is the only woman ever to win a Peru athletic letter. Peru State tracksters took five firsts in the NCC meet at Kearney to finish second behind Kearney State and cap a successful season.fSophomore Jack Weyers oI Sterling won both the mile and two-mile events, while sophomore Mike Mulvaney, Independence, Iowa, won the discus. Bert Faulkner, junior from Paulsboro, N .J ., took the javelin competition, while senior Bruce Vickrey, Princeton, Ill., prevailed in the shot put. Weyers' win in the two-mile established a new NCC mark for that event and, combined with his mile victory, gave Peru a share of the Bruner Trophy., A total of 21 new Peru State records were set by the '68 track team, 15 coming outside and six in indoor comeetition. Only five seniors will not return this spnng from a squad which lost but one dual meet in 1968.

Passing Is Key to Unsuccessful Grid Season; 2M6 Season Record The key to Peru State's sixth straight losing seasoIJ. can be summed up in one word--passing. The Bobcats, finishing the 1968 season with a 2-6 record and an 0-4 mark in the Nebraska College Conference, allowed their opponents to complete 60 passes for 974 yards and 15 touchdowns, several of which directly led to four Peru losses: The last-place NCC finish was the first for the 'Cats since the conference was formed in 1946. Three tough losses in conference play were typical of the season, as Peru lost to Chadron State 33-28 in a tough Homecoming battle and was. shut out by Wayne State (7-0) and Hastings College (13-0). The only two Bobcat wins came over South Dakota teams as Peru surprised Yankton College 6-2 and then stopped Southern State 35-7. Bill Everhart, senior middle guard from Bedford, Iowa, was named to the District XI NAIA all-star team.

Cross Country Success Weyers Seventh, 'Mates Eleventh In Oklahoma City CC NAIA Heet National honors were again bestowed upon Peru State and its star cross country runner, soph Jack Weyers. On November 23, Jack and his Bobcat. teammates ~ra;reled to Oklahoma City for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics championships. With the 'Ca ts finishing in the top 15 for the fifth straight year, Coach Jim Pilkington expressed pleasure' at the eleventh place result in view of the speedy times recorded. Weyers, who earned All-American honors as a freshman, finished seventh in the nationals in the time of 24: 12 over the five-mile course, a pace just 30 seconds slower than that of the winner. The seventh place was an improvement of seven spots over 1967 and assured Jack of his second AllAmerican award in as many years. . . Jack. was undefeated m intercollegiate competition pnor to the Oklahoma meet, losing once to former teammate Tim Hendricks in an AAU event. Team co-captain Van Allen was consistently Peru's second man and placed no lower than sixth in regular season action. The biggest victories in Peru's 11-0 season included the championships of the South Dakota University Invitational, the Nebraska College Conference meet, the Midwest AAU, and the NAIA District Eleven competition. Only three seniors will be lost from this year's club. They are Allen, co-captain Dan Trout, and 1967 captain Ron Jones.

'Cat Cagers Open With Second Place Slot in McPherson Meet Coach Jack Mclntire's Peru State Bobcats opened the 1968-69 basketball season on a winning note by placing second in the McPherson (Kans.) Tournament. Winners of the tourney in each of the past two seasons, the Bobcats oEened by defeating Sterling College (98-80) and Baker University (92-72) before dropping the championship tilt to a hot-shooting St. Mary of the Plains quintet by a 104-7 5 count. The sophomore-laden Bobcat squad should be one of the three top Nebraska College Conference contenders this season along with Hastings and Wayne State, with Ch~dron State as a dark-horse threat. Much will depend on how well the 'Cats fare in a two-game series at Chadron in early February. Mclntire's squad includes seven lettermen, four sophomores and three seniors. The group includes: sorh Pete Stewart, 6-8 center; sophs Clyde Wilkins an Cl Mike Johnson, both 5-11 guards; soph Tom Pat!on, 6-0 guar~; senior Wayne Heine, 6-4 forward; sem.or Ross Ridenour, 6-2 forward; and senior Leon Portrey, 5-10 guard. Joining them are 6-3 freshman forward Earl Brown and 6-0 ifreshman forward Charles Morton, along with 6-4 ·forward Dave Bierbaum and 6-1 forward Allen Pokorny.
