_an MA degree from Norlliwest Missouri State College, Maryville, and has done graduate study at the University of Missouri at Columbia. Everett Browning moves from two years as an assistant director of special services to journalism instructor. Browning has BS and MS degrees from Kansas State University, Manhattan. Other new staff members include Miss Sharon Gentry, assistant librarian, from Emporia, Kansas, and Stanley Mccaslin, a director of date processing. Miss Gentry has her BA degree from Kansas State University, Manhattan, and the MSL degree from Kansas State I Teachers .College, Emporia. Mccaslin has the AB degree' from McCallaster College, St. Paul, Minnesota, and the MS degree from the California Institute of Technology at

Pasadena. Jerry Cox, business administration instructor, is on a leave of absence and will commute to Lincoln for doctoral study.

John Thomas and Nancy Stoll have been selected to head the Pedagogian and Peruvian staffs. John Thomas has been appointed editor of the Ped for the fall semester. A junior from Falls City, he is majoring in English and journalism. He was the business manager for the Ped first semester of last year. His activities include membership in the English Club, Drama Club and PSEA. He is the vice-president of PSEA. He has also served on the Student Center Board. Last year, he participated in both of the plays, "Our Town" and "Blithe Spirit," that were presented by the college. This past summer, he took an active part in the production presented at Buffalo City. Due to an increase in the size of the staff this year, Thomas hopes to have more larger issues of the Ped with more news of the activities of individual students. Nancy Stoll is a junior elementary education major with a tentative minor in history. She is a 1969 high school graduate of Gresham High School. Her activities include membership of the dorm. council at

Morgan Hall, Kappa Delta Pi, honorary education fraternity, Women's Athletic Association, annual staff and Lutheran Student Fellowship. The major portion of her experience in working on a yearbook came last year when she took an avid interest in saving the Peruvian. She started out the year in the position of copy editor and gradually worked into other areas where help was lacking. Her main concerns this year are to sell more yearbooks and to recruit staff members. About 200 yearbooks have been sold, but 300 more need to be purchased by students and faculty if there is to be a yearbook. The campaign to sell yearbooks will begin soon. Students who are interested in working on the Peruvian are needed. They can contact Nancy Stoll or any other staff member for mor~ information. Miss Stoll emphasized the fact that without student interest there may not be a yearbook, even after the successful save last year. She also stated that the more the students care, the better the year book will be.

New Calendar

for Fall Term DUE to a change in the PSC calender, registr~tion and freshmen orientation was held differently this year. Under this new schedule students will complete the first semester before the Christmas holidays. Freshmen Welcome Day was held on Sunday, August 29. Registration followed for two days, then on September I classes began. Total enrollment for. this academic year is estimated to be 1,050, according to Dr. Kelly Liewer, Registrar. This is quite a change from last years system. Instead of a Freshmen. Orientation Week, there was Freshmen Welcome Day. And no innitiation. The possibility of reinstatement .of freshmen initiation is under consideration by SGA.

PROCLAMATION ··The staff of the Peru State College Peda· gogian and the members of the Student Governing Association do hereby jointly proclaim.the 1971-72 academic year to be one of activity and relentless pursuit of progress for the stu· dents of The Campus of a Thousand Oaks. The aforementioned bodies do hereby publicaly de· :vote themselves to the creation of a Student Governing Association of activity and involve· ment. It will be the function of this body to ex· press and act upon the will of the student electorate. It is needless to say that this task will become an idealogical yet fruitless endeavor unless the students express a direction for leadership. Therefore, the Student Governing Association and the Pedagogian do hereby enlist the services of concerned individuals and ask that they make known their wants and concerns. The Peru Pedagogian affords an opportunity . of expression without censorship for the stu· dant body. Similarly, the Student Governing Association meetings in the Fine Arts Audi_. torium allow the students to make their opin· ions known to the student leaders. We hereby make a public plea that all students make use of these means of expression, so as to present their leaders with a direction toward which they might strive.· . This year's Student Governing Association pledges action if given an opportunity and direction. The members of the Student Governing Association are leaders, not mind read· ers. Therefore, join hands with YOUR Pedagogian staff and YOUR Student Governing Association members in making-the 1971-72 academic year a truly profitable one for all at Peru State College.

Selective Service


Changes Deferments Dr. Curtis Tarr, National Director of the Selective Service System, explained expected policy changes on Undergraduate Student deferments in a press release from the Selective Service System. College students who were enrolled full-time in the 1970-71 academic year will· be eligible for student deferments for 197172 if they continue satisfactory progress in school. Not qualifying for student deferments will be those young men · who entered school for the first time this summer and those who enrolled as freshmen this fall. These changes are dependent on the passing of the Selective Service bill by Congress. The House has completed action on the bill and final Senate action is expected this month. Dr. Tarr has requested that the processing of Form 109, which gives student deferments to freshmen, be temporarily suspended until there is further action on the bill. The Resgistrar's Office at Peru State has announced it will comply with this .request. Incoming Freshmen and students are advised by Dr. Tarr not to file for a student deferment since if the bill is passed the deferment will be resclinded and if the bill isn't passed, they have no need of it and have only increased their liability to the age of 35. Should Congress change legislation and permit deferments, such applications will not be jepordized by the delay of submission. According to Dr. Tarr, few incoming freshmen students are lifely to be inducted in the near future because of the student deferement phaseout. Out of the 1,034,000 inco~ing freshmen_

estimated by the Office of Education, approximately 25,000 men stand a strong chance of being drafted. If a student is called in the middle of a semester, he will be allowed to postpone hs induction until the end of that semester, or if in his last academic year, until after graduation. If the bill fails to pass the President is empowered to call up those men presently holding deferments, but Selective Service officials state that this is unlikely .to happen. Young men who have recently lost or dropped deferments would most likely be called up.

The Desire to Represent Effectively by the SGA The Peru State Student Government Association is an organization of great importance to every student enrolled in this college. It entails responsibility for every student, as well as opportunities to voice opinions and work for progress on this campus. This organization consists of twenty members and two · sponsors, Dr. Wininger and Mr Semon, who attempt to represent the entire student body. These representatives are, in no way, able to completely and effectively represent each individual. It is the responsibility of each student to voice her opinion and work through SGA to improve Peru State College. SGA meetings are held every Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. in the Fine Art's Auditorium. All students are welcome and urged to participate. · All PSC students have an opportunity to know the projects and policies of their SGA. The minutes of every meeting are distributed to the dormatories and around the campus. A joint SGA SCB office has been established in the small dining room of the Student Center. Students are welcomed to visit the office on Tuesdays and Thursday from ll:OOa.m. to l:OOp.m. All interested students are asked to join one of the SGA committies. Petitions for the committees and for any freshmen interested in the position-Of freshman SGA representative are available in the SGA office. Freshmen class officers are also to pick up their petitions at the office. Many students are needed to participate as members of the committees, which are as follows: Research Comm.

Tarkio came back to tie the ball game with only 2:33 remaining in the first half on a seven yard pass play·from Woodin to Wageman.

Next - month the Ped will lebrate its fiftieth anersary. A fact that makes it en more impressive is that ·s issue marks the seventyth year of ·publication of a pus newspaper for Peru te College. · In October, 1892, the first wspaper published on the mpus, The Normal Courier, peared and was "established 2 by the class of '93."

In that year the Normalite · ared with ''hopes that it d be well received" by the ent body. The Normalite, ·des being successful, was e forerunner of the gogian. For one semester 5, for reasons unknown, the ·alite suspended operations The Normal Journal me the campus paper. The Normal Journal

free but warned its readers that the remaining issues would cost five cents each. As quickly as the Normalite had disappeared it reappeared in ·1906. Another milestone was reached on October 11, 1915, when the campus newspaper became a weekly. Up to this tinte it had been a monthly with some issues representing two months. ·On October 5, 1921, twentynine years after the initial appearance of a campus paper and after nineteen years of publication under one title, except for the break in 1905, the Normalite was laid to rest in a farewell issue. The Peru Pedagogian, a name suggested by a member of the school's football team, became the title for the campus paper to carry on a long tradition. The school library has bound volumes of these papers dating back to 1892. The years of 1901 and 1904 are not represented and it is unclear whether there were no publications for these years or whether the volumes are incomplete. These volumes are open for the public but may not be checked out. They are a fascinating source of information about facets of life ih these neriods.

Anew set of hours for girls in Morgan and Davidson-Palmer Halls will be effective September 24; The system has been approved by President Neal S. Gomon. All girls under 20 who have parental consent, and girls 20 years of age or older, are eligible for no hours. However, girls who · participate in the plan will have to work on the desk nights. A participant will stay in a designated apartment or room one complete night after hours. Abuzzer will be installed so that the individual working will get up and let the girl seeking admittance in. The girl on duty will remain on duty until 6a.m. and at that time will unlock the door for the day. Each girl must work the night she is assigned or she must find someone to replace her. If either she or her replacement fails to perform the designated duties the first girl will lose her no-hour privileges until her time to tend

Each girl with the no hours privilege will continue to use a sign out sheet, but it will be separate from the sheet for those without privilege. Avisitor must follow the same rules as the girl whom she is visiting. A girl with a visitor must register and obtain a pass from the desk or the visitor will not be permitted in the dorm if coming in after hours. The pass must be obtained from Mrs Beckley, Mrs Johns or either of the relief housemothers while they are on duty. Any girl breaking any rule will be taken before the dormitory judiciary board.

PEDITORIALS It is interesting to note the revolt now being waged against the products and principles that pollute our environment; while we· continue to pollute our minds without thinking. For example, those with time and money criticize the SST, Oil spills and the rise in temperature on our rivers from water used to cool atomic reactors. But what about problems that hit just as hard. Atlantic Monthly (October, 1971) has devoted an entire issue to work in America and takes a look at the laborer to the professfonal person. All of these people fell the pressure of economy, morale and morals. · To complain and present problems is popular. Many journalists and writers make their money this way. It is easier for people in general to sit back and listen to the news commentators who analyze the news for you; the politician who offers you another service for the small cost of a three mill tax increase. Our modern society wants to work four days a week and be entertained the rest of the time. There are too many people who don't care where the money comes from because you can always borrow now and pay it back later. When the cost of living goes up everyone is affected. The cost of room and board, books, clothes and beer all go up. None of our conveniences come to us as a courtesy. It is costing us our country by hurting the morale and morals of our people. We are becoming lazy when we ask for more free time and then waste it away by living it up and spending wnat we make from our job without doing a little for ourselves to conserve. The solution is with the individual. People have to do for themselves or pay for it because that is the way it is.

Right ~n ! Right on! Areliable source has informed me that one of the Delzell residents fell from the side of the dorm while trying to gain entrance to his room. He had been locked out.

I hope that we can all take time out to look back on what we did and laugh at f>ome of it.

Many of the early students at Peru Normal were eighth grade graduates who were doing high school work at the Nonna! School. Delzell Hall is named after W. N. Delzell, who was a faculty member at Peru State from 1904 to 1940. The first term of the Peru Seminary was taught in a small room downtown but the winter term was taught in the new building on the hill. The first tuition rate at Peru was five dollars per term. With extra learning it went up to seven and a half dollars.

Bobcats Disappointed Jn-Bid For First Win


Football, football, football, seems to be the topic on the mind of most of the sports fans across the nation. Every weekend footballs fill the air in many stadiums all through the land. Street corner conversations have switched from girl watching to football, and everybody seems to be'an expert. Last week Zero had a fine week in the field of predicting the winners in the key college games. So here he goes for another try. The Fighting Irish Of Notre Dame play Big Ten rival Purdue. In last years game Purdue didn't even score a point, and they probably won't score this year-. Ara wants to be number one this year and will probably try to run up the score in this game, but Purdue will score. Notre Dame 44 Purdue 14.

Peru Bobcats zomp two points past Graceland 1s defense.


The weather was chilly and so were most of the fans in the Oak Bowl who witnessed the football game between Peru State and . Graceland. The Peru fans were anticipating a victory and this was enough to make them forget the weather, but in the end they were still cold and Peru was still looking for its first victory of the season. Graceland went home to Lamoni with a 29-22 victory. . Peru played the part. of the gracious host by letting the visitors score first. Graceland got on the scoreboard in the first few minutes of play when Doug Cottrell scored on a one yard run. This teuchdown was set up by a blocked punt, the first of two in the opening quarter. The Graceland brother act of Tim to Tom Arnold accounted for Graceland's second touchdown.· Tim threw the ball to brother ' Tom and the result was a one yard touchdown pass. Jim Seeley ran for the -two point conversion and. that gave Graceland a 14 point edge. Peru scored in the second quarter on a seven yard pass play from Terry Criger to Avery Wallace. The key play in the drive was a 22 yard gain on a keeper play by quarterback Criger. · With just 13 seconds left in the first half Graceland scored

again when Tim Arnold ran across the goaline. With a two point conversion the score at half was 22-7 in favor of Graceland. Peru scored late in the third quarter on a one yard run by Avery Wallace. Jim Desbien ran for the two point conversion and Peru narrowed the gap to 22-15. With 9:53 left in the third period the Yellowjackets scored again. This time it was a pass play from Al Dicken to Tom Arnold that covered 25 yardS. The placement was good and that made- the score 29-15. 'Ihe final Peru tally was set up when defensive back Gordon Thompson swiped a pass on the Peru seven and returned it to the Graceland 28 yard line. On the sixth play of the drive John Zatloukal scored from two yards out, Dan Dotton kicked the extra point and the final score was 29-22.



Two Bobcats were injured in. the game. Barry Reed suffered a slight shoulder separation, and Ken Kamman suffered a slight . elbow injury. Their availability for this weeks game is un- certain.

New Tape Deck Purchased

Roger Ovlat views new tape player.

An eight track Craig tape deck was recently purchased by the Student Center Board and paid for by student program fees. The· Unit was purchased from World Radio Lab of Council Bluffs. The normal cost of the unit would have been over $160.99, but SCB bought the unit on sale for under $130. The brainstorm of Roger Oviat of the SGB, the tape player has several unique functions. It is capable of recording its own material so that tapes can be dubbed from discs. With this in mind, 20 blank tapes were purchased. The unit can be set to repeat a tape continuously. Although the students will not be allowed to bring their own tapes to play on the machine, they can make requests from the student center library of tapes. The library includes music by the BI9od Sweat and Tears, Cat

Stevens and the Chicago. Immediate plans include the purchase of more tapes with an emphasis on satisfying a general audience. According to Mrs Gayle Shipley, director of Student ·Center, the reason students will not be allowed fo play their own tapes is because tapes may jam. Also their might be some hassle over what was to be played.

225 More Books Must Be Sold About 225 more books must be sold by October 5if there is to be a 1972 yearbook, according to Everett Browning, yearbook advisor.

The yearbook staff has sold about 200 books at $8 each. A total of 500 books must be sold to provide money for the bid of $4,267, made by Walsworth Publishing Company of Marceline, Mo. "If our sales reach 425 books by October 5 we can honor the contract and go ahead with the individual picture taking which is scheduled for October 6 and 7," Browning said. "If we don't have 425 books sold by October 5, we can't have a yearbook, because we would have to commit upwards to $750 for the individual pictures and we can't commit that much money without being assured of a yearbook." . Yearbook sales staff will set up sales tables in the Student Center and salesmen will be on the campus Friday, Monday and Tuesday. If sales are not great enough to print the yearbook, money paid will be returned to those who have ..bought· 1972 books, BroWlling said.

PEDITORIALS Being a photographer, I have often wondered what the one picture that I would want to survive the holocaust that mankind seems so intent on giving us would be. Believe it or not it is not one that I have taken! In fact, it is not one that any·one individual took. Indeed the cumulative effort of many different men and women working together was needed to supply this picture. Achieving it reflects the embodiment of all the genius of man in learning to work and perform under the unalterable laws of the universe. From the first flight at Kitty Hawk to the triumphant launching of the first artificial satelite, man has learned that he. can not suspend the physical laws of nature but must succumb to and be g~>Verned by them. Too bad he has not yet realized that there are laws at work that govern his relation to his fellow man. To his credit he has realized that there are laws of cause and effect. Why can he not just as he applied them to the problems of Areospace flight apply them to the problems of our human society. It should be self-evident that as thrust causes lift so hate results in war. But, back to the subject. It took many men to supply the gelatin and silver to make the emulsion that was used to take the picture. Many people formulated and mixed the chemicals that were needed to process the film. So, when one individual pointed that camera, focussed it, and pressed the shutter release - for one instant - one tiny part of a secona, he gained the ultimate hope of all mankind and stored it on film~




The burden of making the whole mission a success or failure once again hinged on what one man did. One individual took the film carefully - ever so carefully-from the camera and placed it on the machine to process it. Care was taken to avoid any more light hitting the film than that which that one ' instant had submitted. He carefully checked the temperature of the chemicals. Their strength and suitability for the job had previously been born out. With everything "go" the processing started. An hour or so later, the smell of chemicals trailing behind him, one delirously happy man emerged from a dimly lit room. He poised in front of his fellows obviously pleased and overjoyed with the part that he had had in accomplishing the completion of the mission. "Here it is!" he must have said. "Is it beautiful!" And yes, finally there it was the picture of a shimmering blue jewel set 4gainst a solid black background. On its way through eternity, the earth had stopped for one instant to let its inhabitants know that it was jµst one world. Mike Summers Editor Issue No. 3 By Jaon Backenberg Peru State College has taken a giant step forward by allowing girls to have the privilege of no dorm hours. Girls who participate in the program now can come and go . as they desire, within reasoµ of course. H nothing else, no hours gives a girl the opportunity to be responsible for herself. She has no one to tell her what is best for her. In other words, an individual is able to find out for herself what is best for her. And college is a time to find out what one's limitations are and to learn to be. responsible. The buzzer system for letting girls in during the night is a.good beginning, but it has its drawbacks. First of all, a girl must be on duty all night to make sure all individuals who are to admitted are and that a person who does not blong in the dorm does not get in. The draw backs come ·when the girl working has a test the

next day or other activity which' she should be alert. The second draw back comes on weekends when many students go home. In such situations girls may not want to work, but would have to if she could not find a replacement or forego the no hours privilege. This in itself is not fair if the girl would be willing to work another night. The buzzer system is a beginning, but it should be considered only as a beginning. Akey system might work better, especially if a stiff fine would be placed on the individual who lost a key in any other way abused the trust put in her. A better way can and should be found. The change has been a long time in coming and has taken much work on the part of many people, specifically the Student Governing Association and some members of the administrative staff. They are to be thanked and at the same time to be reminded that if progress is to continue, change should be eminent.

It is not the policy of this writer to raise questions_ and problems just for the sake of argument. UNO has a parking problem, the Lincoln campus needs bigger stadium and Peru has a troublesome and dangerous street ori the west end ot the campus. This college spends money every year on improvements in buildings, teaching aids and campus beautification. But why is the street on the west end of the campus lacking a stop sigh at the north end and why are large holes allowed to get bigger. without any attempt to fix them? Adangerous situation exists in both cases. Traffic enters the west parking lot from the east. H a car approaches this particular

Draft-Law Passed By Congress A much fairer draft system will be brought about by the new draft l~w passed by Congress, accordmg to local selective service agent John Muse of Auburn. The major change in the new legislation is the abolishment of college student deferments. Muse indicated, however, that the new system should be more advantageous not only to those men not in school, but also to college students. The local agent has received word from the Washington office that they will not reach as high in the lottery numbers to induct men for the service. This will be brought about by the abolishment of student deferments. Previously not all the men in one number could be drafted because of student deferments, the new law will allow most men ·with low numbers to be drafted. Without a deferment a man subject to induction until the age of 26. Previously students obtaining a deferment were eligible to the age of 35.


Culligan Lady Takes Over By Mike Summers

The Plymouth slowed as it approached the driveway to Delzell Just as_ she turned in the car scraped the bottom. She would later learn that this was a common occurance no matter how slow one drove into the driveway. It was a hot August 19. The morning sun beat down heavily over her head. Getting out of the car she approached the rear of the building. The hall loomed before her like a massive giant. It was to be the biggest house she had ever lived in so· far. This was · to be home for the next nine months for her family of over 150 young men. She knew of no other woman who could boast that they had so big a family.

. Opening the door she was grtie.ted by a gust of cool air. It was a welcome feeling for she was convinced that it was going to be a hot one this day. Her

footsteps echoed as she walked up the long stairs that led to the hall. Putting her suitcase down, she opened the door and walked into the lobby. The place seemed a tomb, still and lifeless. For those first few days it would be - until she got use to the place and her newly acquired family started moving in. Her son had just graduated from Peru State this spring. She had not the slightest indication -at that time that she would be gaining so big a family so soon. Mrs Mary Kunkel made her home in Falls City, Nebraska and was a Culligan Soft Water Service representative. The tendancy to call her a "Culligan Lady" must be resited she says. For there are no "Culligan Lady's," just Culligan Men. As the first day came to an end the quietness of the building again was everywhere present. It shouldn't have upset her though, it would never be that

quiet again. The first of her new family arrived on the 22 of August. She had been on her knees scrubbing the office floor when she heard a "tap" "tap" on the desk top. She looked up. There standing tall, staring _down at her was Air Force Captain Dennis Mitchell. "I'd like to check my son in, please." She stood up rather embarrassed and lumbered into her apartment in search of her keys. In the days that followed more students began to arrive and the dorm began to take on a lived in atmosphere. By the thirty-first most of her family would be moved in and exchanging questions about their summer. The dust on the TV screen was brushed away and some of the family took to watching TV. Formally she is known as Mrs Mary Kunkell but to those who live in Delzell and appreciate her genuine concern for her new family .she is simply ''mom."

Ped 'Views Pot & Drug Abuse By Mike Summers In view of the recent rise in the use of marijuana and drugs, the Ped presents this Candid off the cuff interview with an ex drug abuser.

"This weed is used in the making of Marijuana."

The Case Against Marijuana "In the United States, where more than $5 billion are spent for drugs each year, there is an almost mystical faith in the power of drugs to heal, to ease pain,,to tranquilize - even to help people "escape" from the rigors of modern - day living. "While the dangers of physically addicting drugs such as heroin and morphine are readily acknowledged, increasing numbers turned to amphetamines to pep them up, barbituates to calm them down, and hallucinogens to "turn them on." Most popular was marijuana. Current estimates on users in the United States range up to 20 million. Marijuana is no longer a drug that is primarily used among low - incom{! groups. "Pot" has found its way into the affluent suburbs, high schools, college dormitories, and even into the military services. "When educators, law enforcement officers, parents, and doctors argue that marijuana is a dangerous drug, its defenders reply that since it is not physically addictive, marijuana is perfectly safe. But is it s;ife? "Many marijuana users apparently do enjoy its effects with out suffering, ,any permanent physical damage. Alcohol, these users say, is far more

dangerous, and they cite the 20,000 deaths that occur each year in the United States from liver and heart disease and other physical disorders related to alcoholism. "Law enforcement officers respond that marijuana is indeed dangerous, and among other things point to the role it plays in leading people to "harder stuff", such as the true narcotic, heroin. "Very powerful support for the antimarijuana view came from two medical and scientific groups on June 24, 1968. Committees of the two groups, the American Medical Association and the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences, spent two years studying medical and scientific literature on marijuana. They concluded that even weak marijuana preparations can cause anti-social behavior "with serious ~onsequences.'' "In support of their findings, the groups cited a recent study by the federally operated Addition Research Center in Lexington, Ky. Dr. Harris Isbell, director of the study, found that strong doses of marijuana produce psychotic symptoms including delusions and hallucinations, in most subjects. "Yet the use of marijuana

continues to rise. Dr. Dana Farnsworth, director of health services at Harvard Universitv. told a symposium at the Colle~e of Physicians of Philadelphia that 30 to 35 percent of the students at major universities on the East and West coasts had tried marijuana at least once and that about half of the students said that they had repeated the experiment. "The federal government finally took strong action to curb drug abuse in 1968. A riew Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs was formed and placed in the Department of Ju!tice. This was expected to strengthen the enforcemtnt of federal laws on drugs. "Thus the teen-ager or college student who takes a brief fling with pot invites possiblE;! undesirable side effects. Also, legal dangers and the stigma of carrying a criminal record can hold vast implications for a person's future. In most areas of the United States, it is difficult if not impossible - for a young personwith a narcotics conviction to enter such professions as teaching and law, and it is even difficult to gain employment in some industries." Drugs: A Year Book Close'UP 1969 P314.

The first hit I bought cost six dollars. Now days that would be extremely expensive. It was worth the money then because of the scarcity. The money that I used was just money that I had laying around.

ZERO PREDICTS Ater a week of some upsets it's time for 7.ero to tread ground where no other man dare travel. This business of picking winners isn't as easy as one may think. 7.ero never hears about the winners he picks only the losers come back to haunt him. Probably the top game of the week finds the USC Trojans traveling to Norman to play the Sooners in the dreaded snake pit. This should be a very interesting game. Both teams have a great offense, and an adequate defense. The key to this game is who can control the ball the longest. Oklahoma is noted for their fine running attack and ball control, while Southern Cal likes to put points on the board anyway they can. I look for the Trojans to upset the Sooners. USC 35 Oklahoma 34. After counting their blessings for a week the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame must again take to the gridiron to probe that they. are NUMBER ONE. Last week they had trouble with a Big Ten foe and this week should be no different. You can bet 路your sweet hippy that Michigan State will be ready, but look for lucky Ara's boys to pull another victory. Notre Dame 71/4 Michigan State 61/2.

Harriers Get Revenge The Peru State cross country team defeated 'Northwest Missouri State 20-38 last Friday to avenge an early season loss to the same school. Bill Hindry from Maryville won the race over the four mile course in the time of 20:06. The Bobcat runners took the next four places with Don Monzingo finishing second, followed by Dave Hillman, Jerry Stuken路 holtz, Bill Sell, and Dave Harris.

With just 5:08 left in the game Maryville scored the winning TD. The fleet Steve McCluskey gathered in a punt and raced 63 yards for the TD and the winning margin of victory. Two Bobcats received injuries that will keep them out of action in this week's game. Bill Kennedy suffered a leg injury and Steve Shupe pulled some ligaments. The Bobcats hit the road again in quest of their first victory of the year when they travel to Springfield to play South Dakota Southern. Peru will be trying to end a 10 game losing streak. The last Peru victory was against this team last year in the Oak Bowl.

In the old days the small college was usually the stopping place for the farm boy athelete because the larger schools were interested in only those people who were outstanding scholars and if time permitted could .play football, basketball, or baseball as a side endeavor. This is no longer true. Most of the large universities are now diligently recruiting the best atheletes to play the major sparts, even if they lack the mental ability upstairs where it counts. This has hurt the small college athletic programs because most of the top atheletes will go to the school that wines and dines them and promises them the best deal. This isn't to say that there have never been any top atheletes on the small college scene, because there have. But what is being said is that it is hard for the small school to get the super star because of the headlines and big time offered him by the bigger schools. Through the years Peru has had its share of good atheletes and in most cases they have been above average students. But today with competition as it is the student who used to come to Peru is now going elsewhere because more is offered to them and they can make the big splash in the big time. Let it be known that Peru will still field athletic teams and will be very competitive. Even though most of the teams we play are from bigger schools the Peru bunch is hungry and will fight until time has run out. Also let it be knpwn that the Peru athelete will know more than statistics. from the sports world, he will also have an education that will take him farther than any blocked punt, fast break, or basket.

Homecoming Plan Begins

Peruvian Sells 425 Books "There will be a Peruvian this year," said Mr Everett Browning, Yearbook Advisor, Wednesday morning. This decision came after a sales campaign that had sold 435 yearbooks as of that time. Although 500 books have to be sold to ensure its publication, the trend indicated that the required number would be exceeded. Of the 435 books sold so far, sonie have been sold under the plan which allows one dollar down and payment of the balance by November 10. Becau~e of the borderline sales concerning the Peruvian, individual picture taking has been rescheduled for November 10 and 11. The times will be: November 10 - 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. and November 11 from 11:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The pictures will be taken in the Student Center.

Sales will continue until the printing order is placed with the publishing company next spring. Browning had high praise for the students who sold the yearbook and m so doing, assured its publication. Janie Montang is chairman of the sales committee.

PEDITORIALS January 1, 1971, marked the beginning of a new era in American politics. Eleven and one-half million young Americans at the age of 18 won the right to vote. Then why aren't they registering? It was a long, hard pull with many people fighting hard for the legislation, and now that it has .been passed, only a small percentage of the total have registered. To vote in the primary, you must be registered by April 28, 1972. If anything is to be changed, voting is the best way to do it. The vote is one of the most powerful tools an American has, for we the people, big and little, rich and poor, do run this country - if we vote. The government spends our money - with the vote, we can tell them how. Register now, and at election time vote. Your one vote can make a difference. For example, the 1960 presidential election was decided by one voter for each precinct in Illinois. Illinois's 26 electorial votes would have changed the national outcome. Your one vote does mean more than you think it does. Instead of complaining about what is wrong with the government, show your discontent by registering, and at election time vote for the candidate you feel will do the most good. There is more to it than just voting. Register today and begin to make your vote count in the next election. Find out how government works, and keep up with the issues and the candidates. Know the kinds of decisions-your vote will affect. Don't go by unreliable sources that discuss motives rather than issues, and personalities rather than ideas; they will probably insinuate rather than document. In all, become politically aware. Always remember, "Vote and the choice is yours, don't vote and the choice is theirs." If you haven't registered, do it now it's your country. John M. Thomas


Can money solve all of the problems of Peru State College? Can money create a winning football team? Can money boost school spirit? Can money get more students? In the opinion of this individual, the answer to all of the above questions is no. Money can get new and better buildings and more instructors. Money, however, can do little else. Money cannot create a winning football team. Only good players and coaches can do that. Athletic scholarships can get players, but they do not have to be good or even win to merit that free education. Performance is the test of good coaches. Money cannot boost school spirit. Only a student body that has pride in the school can do that. Reason for pride cannot be faked, it has to be genuine. Money can only be a token payment to individuals for time and effort put into various activities. It can also display a partisan attitude to those receiving payment for their duties, while other individuals who put possibly more time and effort into school activities are lucky to receive a word of thanks. Money cannot get more students. It may be a factor in getting more individuals to attend the college, but it does not insure that the individuals will be students. Nor is that a sure thing any more because even if a scholarship is offered to a potential student, that does not mean that he will accept it. Money can buy many things, but it cannot buy pride, school spirit, honor, intelligence and a winning football team. These things the students of Peru State College will have to achieve for themselves.

If you e not awake you might have ght that you were taking morning shower as you ked or ran to your classes. s, there were many water inklers on c9mpus ! seemed that no matter re the student or teacher nted to go th~re was a water inkler to consider. A person d to calculate how to get ough or around without ing an extra shower or two fore the day was over. Even the dogs were getting nfused on how and where to avel. Teachers were seen nning along the sidewalk king an effort to beat the er circuit of the sprinklers a few didn't quite make it. What is the reason for these

plentiful water sprinklers? Well, students have been heard to say: "They're there to keep the sidewalks and buildings clean." Others have said that everyone should take advantage of the water while the weathers hot and get into their swimsuits. Still others have said it's just something to keep the maintenance men busy but that is a rather doubtful assumption. Actually, the maintenance men have been very busy and efficient in theirwork to sow the grass and water the campus grounds. For a while we all wondered if it was worth all the bother, but if you'll take a look around the campus, you'll see that there is grass growing. So even though it was bothersome for a few weeks, it was worth the inconvenience to enhance the beauty of our campus.

The concert wind ensemble differs from a traditional band in that each instrument, rather than several, is given a separate part. Because the purpose of the concert wind ensemble will be to conduct concerts, pla~s are being readied for a campus program on November 18,at 8:00 p.m. The details have not yet been worked out. An 0•1ernight concert tour in Iowa is being planned for

November 22 and 23. The 34 members will be accompanied by Dr. Gilbert ·wnson and Dr. Gavin Doughty. Several soloists will be presented on this tour. John Brooks will play a solo on the french horn, Doug Kottich will perform a portion of the original sound track of Love Story on piano and Bob Tipton will present a saxophone solo. Also included in the program will be a trumpet trio comprised of Karen Ramsay, Jim Dickson, and Sheila Kunzman. This year's officers have recently been elected. They

include: President - Jim Dickson, Vice. President _:. Dianne Dunn, and Secretary Deborah Coff.elt. Members chosen for the band board are Karen Ramsay and John Brooks. The stage band, composed of members chosen from the concert wind ensemble, wili also perform on the concert tou.: . The stage band, which made its debut earlier this year at the Variety Show, plays only popular songs and also serves as pep band during basketball games.

"Whodunit?" onPSC Campus Last year the efforts of many people were consummated by the placing of the Peru State College sign in front of the education building. Donna's Gift Shop donated the sign. Dennis Robertson sanded and Margee Heiser aided with the painting. Pete lsaccson set the lights up. Maintenance donated the poles, put up the sign, and wired it. At first there were 134 letters purchased plus the welcome, but 20 letters have been stolen so far this year. The letters cost a dollar a piece and Circle K is saddled with t.he cost. Dr. ¡ Darrell Wininger, the faculty advisor has been changing the sign this year. According to Dr. Wininger it has become difficult to spell many words because several letters have been taken. Monday the sign was again scrambled, so now the question is, "How many letters are missing now?"

During the spring term of 1868 at PSC, an earthquake knocked pieces of brick from the walls and caused tables and chairs in the chapel to move about.

PEDITORIAL Homecoming is rapidly approaching its 50th anniversary. Last year under the guidance of the Homecoming Co-ordinating Committee, the 49th annual PSC Homecoming was truly an en-. thusiastic, impressive display of student involvement. Let's try to keep the enthusiasm again this year. This year's homecoming will again feature the parade, window painting, crowning of the queen at halftime, dance, and concert, along with the annual alumni meetings, and the Homecoming Play. With so many events happening in a weekend, students should take every chance to become an active participant in the homecoming festivities. Last year's homecoming proved that the PSC students can and will become involved. Let's try and make this homecoming THE best one yet. The Golden Anniversary of Peru State College Homecoming will undoubtedly be one to be remembered for a long time, but it's going to need the hard work and support of the student body. JohnM. Thomas

The Desire to Represent ·Effectively by the SGA The following students were selected to be members of the Administration Committee: Teacher Education Committee - Susan Torczon, Joan Bachenberg, Roxanne Rengstorf. Student Affairs Committee - Mike Kelly, Connie Morrison. Academic Affrairs Committee - Pat Castle. Scholarship and Financial Aid Committee - Eprl Brown, Dorothy Dux. School and Community Relations Committee - Ann O'Connor, Mrs Margaret Tynon. Student Conduct Committee - Mark Hahn, John Helni. The SGA office will be open every Tuesday and Thursday from 11: 00 to 1: 00 in the small dining room of the Student Center. If there are any questions or comments regarding the SGA there will be someone there to help or listen. Last Wednesday all class elections were held and ruled valid by the SGA. There was some comment as to whether the elections were run correctly, and whether the right people were in each office. The SGA looked into the situation and found everything to be suitable. For t,he students who have found "that little pink slip" on their windshield, the appeals office, located in the Maintenance building, is open Monday through Friday. The hours are as follows 9:00to 9:40, 10:30to 11:30, 1:30to 2;40, and 3:30to 5:00. It is suggested that the student bring the ticket with him when appealing. If he really wants to "beat the rap", he should attend the J. D. meetings on Tuesday night after the regular SGA meeting to appeal in person. Chairman Susan Torczon of the Student Housing Comm. announced that there will be tables set up in the dorms Wednesday and Thursday for a survey. All the students will be asked various questions concerning life in the dorms and their opinions on the subject. Also there will be a table set up in the Student Center during the supper hour to find out why the students living off· campus are doing so. After all the information is compiled, the Housing Comm. will then be able to make recommendations for the improvement of dorm life as a whole. SGA meetings are held every Tuesday night at 6:00 in the FA room 212. All interested students are urged to attend. The SGA needs the support of the students. Rick Davis

Circle K Wants Members Get involved! That's the attitude the members of the Circle Kclub have taken this year. For those who are unaware of this club or its purposes, the Circle K club is a campus service organization affiliated with Kiwanis club. The Kiwanian principles are fair dealing and the . observance of the golden rule. The Peru chapter of the"Circle Kclub has been active year after year, getting involved. The concession stands at football and basketball games are manned by club members and the proceeds go towards accomplishment of worthwhile goals. Last )'.ear the local club bought three new benches for the campus and painted the light poles. Among other projects, according to club president Russell Taylor, were the transportation of students from Peru to Auburn to donate blood, sponsorship of Peru's Cub Scout troop and sponsorship of students for the Hunger Hike. This year's top project so far is getting the Cub Scouts back into operation. Summertime seems to mark a slump in scout activity, Taylor said.

The faculty advisor is Dr. Darrell Wininger and the local Kiwanis advisors are Jon Warren and Leyon Brestel. Other officers of the club include Steve Wakefield, vice president; Wally Sirenko, secretary and Dennis Robertson, treasurer. The Circle K International Convention was held in Chicago this August with Sirenko and Roger Oviatt representing the local club. Membership in the Circle K club at this time numbers ten. Luncheon meetings are held the first and third Tuesdays of every month in the west dining room of the Student Center at 4:45. Taylor said that membership is open to anyone after attending three consecutive meetings and that-everyone is welcome. There are no dues.

Peru To Face Kearney Oct. 16 A big Kearney State College foot~ team invades the Peru dtate College team Saturday night in a 7:30 p.m. contest. The game could prove to be one of the more interesting matchups of the season. The team from Kearney features a big set of lineman plus one of the most heralded freshman of the state. The Peru State defense will be tested by an offensive line averaging well over 220 pounds, while the Bobcat offense will be confronted with a defensive line averaging over 230 pounds. A240 pound fullback by the' familiar name of Tom Kropp will be running at the Bobcat defense. Kearney State dropped last week's contest to a tough Moorehead, Minn., crew. Dan Fernbacher, who scouted the Kearney State team, was impressed by the size of the team. Head coach Joe Pelisek hopes his Bobcats can counter the opponent's size with a stepped up aerial attack and a touch rushing defense. Pelisek hopes to establish the running game, but if the air route milst be taken, he will- hope to be successful with short, quick passes. Pelisek hopes his Peru State team is quick enough to overcome the size difference. Pelisek states his team was in good physical shape for the game, with no injuries. Fernbacher, who as a student assistant scouts Peru State oppo~ents re~ularl~, is in

compliance wit!I' Coach Pelisek that the Bbcats must step the running game of Kearney. When asked about the performance of Kropp, Fernbacher stated the freshman fullback from Aurora impressed him as only "fair." However, the scout qualified that statement by saying·Kropp has great potential, and will probably be used a great deal against Peru State because of the size difference. Fernbacher was most impressed with the passing attack of Kearney, and especially with the receiving of Sam Frazier, a split receiver. He indicated that Peru State defense could still afford to concentrate solely on defending the rush, because of quite adequate passing attack.

I won't say that I told you so to all the Texas fans that thought the Longhorns would beat the Sooners but "I told you so.". The Big Eight conference is one of the toughest in the land and the game that finds. the Colorado Buffaloes traveling to Sooner land does nothing to hurt this image. If there are key games early in the season this is a key game. These two teams should fight it out tooth and nail until the end of the game, a tie would settle nothing. The Buffaloes are hungry for a Sooner Scalp, and the sooners are still gloating over their Texas victory. Both teams will be ready, but I look for Colorado to upset the Big Red from Soonerland.

Chet Nichols Here Oct. 28


Chet Nichols is a person to be reckoned with. The vibrant, hard chords of his guitar matched with sensual lyrics of our time and pure honest thought made his recent performance at Southwest Missouri State transcend the common place. A senior at Kansas State University, Nichols ended his brief college tour at SMS before going back to school. At Lawrence he has appeared at the PawnShop and the Vanguard, playing and singing his own songs. Chet Nichols will perform at PSC Coffee House, October 28, at 8 p.m. in the Student Center· Cafeteria. When asked why all his songs had an aura of melancholy pessimism, Nichols said, "I'm not really pessimistic; actually I'm a very optimistic person. Have you ever had a coach in high school who constantly pressed and badgered you until he ·got you to perform to his standards? That is what I try to do. You can't initiate change by telling sociaty how good it is."

His songs are poignant pieces of truth designed not so much to entertain as they are to convey a new way of life. They ·speak of sorrow and apathy and the plight of the unaware. But just as the countless innovators of a new society, he can offer no solution. He describes it this way: "I know that I don't have the an" swers, but it is obvious that we need a change. With my music I try to make people a little more aware of their situation and maybe do my part in reaching a solution." His material has been described by the Kansas City Free Press as "somewhat in the same spirit as Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, and his vocal qualities somewhere between Donovan and Tim Buckley." Still, he has a style all his own, an electricity generated to the audience, a quality, with the right breaks, which could send Chet Nichols to the fame that his talen deserves. The performance will be sponsored by SCB and paid for by the Student Progra.m Fees.




Game Sign.up


While on a little toot to the north country, I overheard Uncle Lunk regaling the family about a farmer who asked his neighbor if he might borrow a rope. "Sorry, I am using my rope to tie up my milk." "Why, good gravy!" answered the farmer-, "rope can't tie up milk." "I know," came back the reply, "But when a man doesn't want to do something, one reason is as good as another." When I returned from the trip I found a quote that read, "When a group declines it is through no mystical limitation of a corporate life, but through the failure of its political or intellectual leaders to meet the challenge of change." There was something in Uncle Lunk's story and· the quote which stuck in my mind. I began thinking about Lincoln who said,"that you can't fool all the people all the time.'' Then as coincidence thickened and my mind began figuring, I ran into a quote from President Gomon in the 1970-71 Handbook for Peru Staters, "Recognizing the need to be attunedto an ever-changing society, the faculty and staff believe the primary objective of the college is to promote the understanding of rights, privilege,s, and the responsibilities of participation and leadership of all students in a democratic societ~.'' By now I was on the verge of a coronary thrombosis, when, yes I am afraid to say, another coincidence occured. There before my very eyes was another quote. It read, "Privacy is an essential factor to the mental and physical health of each individual and the groups of which he is a part, as are, freedom of speech, press, and other wellestablished categories of freedom." Yes, by now I knew it was a lucky day; then suddenly it all made sense. The first qlrote I saw on returning, Uncle Lunk's story, Lincoln, President Gomon, and the quote on liberties. . .and room inspection? What made sense to me, I am not at liberty to say, indeed my powers seem under a cloud; but I am sure it must all have some consistency.

ZERO .PREDICTS Football is a funny game and. each ,week the games get tougher and tougher. The ball bounces one way or the other and if it bounces the right way it makes the football predictor a wise person. If it bounces the· other way it makes him the guy that knows nothing. Last week Zero had success in the prediction field so here we go for some more punishment. First of all let's look at the action on the state college scene .. The Peru State Bobcats travel to the west part of the state to play the Chadron State Eagles. Peru was impressive in their loss to Kearney. The Bobcats almost beat the Antelopes. I really don't know much about the Eagles, except they are not as touch as they have been in past years. The· Peru team is hungry and this could be the week they taste the long awaited victory.

The Grandfather Clock, a gift of tile clan ol 1983 bas reClrlle4 to the library.

1903 Gift Is Back The clock is back home. After long absence it has returned to rightful resting place. The -foot-tall grandfather clock, gift to the college from the ss of 1903, has at various es been the subject of ysteries and newspaper ars. e story begins in 1963 when library was remodeled and e old clock was moved. mewhere. The library odeling was finished and rything became as it had . Everything except the k. The ancient timepiece not in the library but the oblem was that nobody knew at it wasn't. The next phase of the story cerns Don Carlile, director of ecial Serivces. He was aking up a #-t of gifts to the

college in the fall of 1969 and ran across the gift of the clock. It wasn't in the library but where was it. An investigation and search revealed that the clock had been sitting in an old college storage house for the past six years. The years had seemed to detract little except for the base. Bobbie Fike, a carpenter for the Building and Grounds department rebuilt the base and the clock started running without further work. It sat in the Special Services office until October 20. On that date the grandfather clock was moved back into the library. It was a lot of activity for a clock that old, but now its over. Maybe. What can possibly happen now?

The bands will play separately during the parade but will combine to play three selections on the field during halftime. There will be about 600 musidans performing on the field at halftime ..

A. I'm in charge of all food operations at Peru. Q. Does your job include making

up the menus?

A. Yes, I work with dietitians to determine the food served. Q. What do you consider when

you make.up a menu?

A. Variety, well balanced menu, and the cost of the food are factors involved. Q. Did you ever taste one of your meals? A. Yes.

Q. What is done with the leftover food? A. Sometimes wer serve the food

again. But if we do the student still gets a choice of two other meals. After food is served for the second time we throw it away. Q. Do you feel the student body is satisfied with what we serve.

A. I think the food .served is pretty good. I eat it often and I don't eat something I don't like.

A.. I think - the majority of students are satisfied with what we serve.

Do you think your food could use any improvement?

Q. How do you account for all the


A. I think the food is just as good as the food served at other colleges. The $8.25 a week the student is paying now is the same price that was paid in 1968. Is it true you soybeans as a filler in much of your food? Q.

A. We use General Mills Bontrae, a soybean meal,a meat substitute in our ground beef recipes such as hamburgers and meatloaf. Q. Why is this substitute used?

Dar Loui, I have been going with t guy about two days. Everyti we go out he wants to get in t back seat of the car. Why? Y can't even hear the radio fro the back seat.

What did you think of it?



Q. Are there any other substitutes put into your food?

A. Because it can be better preserved, it has about the same amount of protein as meat, is cheaper then meat, and doesn't contain so much colestriol.


food left on the plates?

A. Some students don't care about waste. They feel since they're paying for the food they can waste it. Q. What can a person do if he is dissatisfied with your food?

A. I wish he would come to me with his complaint and offer a logical solution along with it. I'll be happy to listen to any ideas on how the food system can be improved. Thank You. --.

EDITORIAL COMMENT Last week we printed a picture and story on the new library hours. The story stated the possibility that the library would no longer be open to the extended hours. After taJj{ing to Mrs Brandt, head librarian, I found that the library has no intentions of stopping the extended hours. The cases of very few people using the library during the new hours ·were true the first couple of weeks the new hours were in effect. Now the people using the library during the new hours is increasing, and toward the ;end of the semester, when term papers are due and finals roll around an even larger number of people will take advantage of the new hours. According to Mrs Brandt, the library is satisfied with the new hours, and have no intentions of closing earlier. I

response to this query, PSC student and faculty, gave these replies: Love is being willing to go to any necessary limits to sacrifice your own welfare for that of someone else. Getting in at 1:30 in the. morning! Love is the undefinable source that rules mankind, guiwng him from the depths of despair to the heights of the gods. Love is sharing, giving; a very personal kind of feeling not really expressable in words. It is a reason to live, to shine, and be beautiful. Love is someone to keep your feet warm on a cold winter night. Love is opposite of hate. Love is that feeling between two people, wherein an atmostphere is created so that the one loved can best fulfill himself. Love is being super ugly and "catching a man." Love is rare. It's a four-letter word that rrteans something that is unexplainable. For the lack of a better word, people use love to express their personal, pleasurable feelings. That which is, that could not be, with someone else.


Clarinda to do Halftime Show The featured high school band for the game between Peru and Wayne State on October 30 will be the Clarinda High band directed by Richard Mowery. The Clarinda band, including about 65 members, has received a first rating in Class A in several band contests in Iowa. At Iowa State University last spring and at Mount Ayre this fall, Clarinda received a first rating. · One outstanding characteristic of the Clairinda band is a group of girls who perform on the Holland hand bells. Several of the band's. movements are executed to the music of these bells. This is Clarinda'.s third performance at Peru State College, the band last appeared here three years a~o.

Football Teams Name All-Stars

Debators Make First Trip-

Teams competing in the intramural touch football contests have selected their "All Stars." fu order to receive this honor a player must have been nominated by his partj.cular team. The coaches anti players_ of the participating teams then cast their ballots for the players they felt were deserving of this special recognition: The teams were not allowed to vote for members of their own team. Six members were chosen for their outstanding abilities in offensive action. They are: Bob Bowen of the Studs, Bruce Brummer, Dave Green, and Steve Lawson of the Alkies, Kevin Stork of Sumad, and Pat Tynon of the Whackers. The coaches and team members also selected six players who exhibited excellence in defensive action. They are: Arnold Allgood of the Whackers, Bob Beaver of Duffy's, Tim Hedberg and Dan Hunsberger of the Studs, and Bill Iliff and Steve Roberts of the Alkies.

On October 22 and 23 members of the PSC debate team attended the "Show Me" debate tournament in Maryville, Missouri. Seventeen schools from Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, and Missouri participated in the tournament. PSC entered two novice teams. The people involved were Sylvia Tyler and Dean Young making up one team, and Pat Castle and Steve Long, the other. Mr J. D. Levitt sponsored the group. Each team debated 6 rounds, alternating affirmative and negative sides. This year's topic is "Resolved: that greater controls should be imposed on the gathering and utilizatio!l of information about U. S. citizens by government agencies." This was Peru's first trip. Upcoming debates will include Wayne and Witchita.

When the football bounces right the games go the way the predictor picks them, when it bounces the other way there are more wrong than right. Last week the ball bounced wrong and Zero had his worst week of the year, but he is back for more punishment. On the state college scene there are many key games. In the game .at the Oak Bowl the Bobcats take on a tough team from Wayne State. Last week while Peru was losing to Chadron, Wayne defeated the tough team from Kearney and now has the inside track on the conference championship. The only thing standiing in their way is Peru. The Bobcatshave looked good at times and not so good at other times they have been inconsistent. A team can't play this way and expect to wih the close games. Errors tend to hurt a team effort. Wayne should win this ball game with little trouble.

Solved Last week I wrote a letter to the editor of the Ped. I asked a simple question. I hereby admit to being the author. Upon reading my own question, I doubted its validity. However, I think I may have stumbled upon a possible answer why a student should hesitate to sign his name to an editorial. Teacher Education Peru is a campus where an estimated 75 per cent of all students intend to enter the field of education, the admittance to teacher education can easily produce a strangle hold of power. So it would appear at Peru. While investigating this aspect of college liie I interviewed several students and instructors. All agreed to the point that the threat of refusal to admittance to teacher education is a great club over the heads of students. The threat of four years of college witho,ut an education , degree is not easily dismissed. Yet, the most incredible concept behind this fear seems to be not based on academic performance. The Teacher Education Committee makes the decision about who is accepted into teacher edu.c:ation. However, there seems to be a good deal of controversy on the basis of how this decision is reached. Sexual -morals, parties, housemother recommendations, length and stYie of hair ,.or growth of human hair upon the face may be deciding factors in your acceptance or rE~jection to teacher education. Heresay evidence is excluded from legal jurisdiction in our court system; however a committee is not run under the same guidelines. One of the students I talked to was a senior girl who had just gotten word that she would not be admitted to teacher education. I asked her what she intended to do'. She said that she would finish the semester, then quit. It seems - as though she really wanted to teach. Her only· comment was "Well, I'm glad they told me after four years instead of six," The excuse she was given for her rejection was that she had been put on social probation as a freshmen (too much noise in someones' opinion on a Satlirday night), and an unfavorable recommendation by her ho.usemother. These are the reasons for three and a half years.of a young girls life to be virtually wasted. And should the questions arise, "Where are your facts, what proof do;you have?" about these accusations about the committee of moral entrepreneurs, all I can say is ask an upperclassmen. Ask your instructor or advisor and closely watch the answer. Or perhaps if you're wise, you'll not question anyone. Study hard, take the right courses, - and keep yourself out of all controversy and scandal. And when your turn comes, provided your grades are of the proper calibre, your admittance to teacher education should be swift and gracious. And after your professional semester, you shall be ready to step into the harsh world of education. For after the years 9f being correspondent to commands, and subject to autocratic rule, you will easily fit into the mold of your future educational employer. For this seems to be the classic type of graduate Peru State College appears to be so adept at producing.

Campus Life

Uncle Lunk got back from a toot to the north country and was talkin' about how it was a smart thing not signin' a name to an editorial.

Room Inspection


The idea of all· men being secure in the possessions and effects from unreasonable searches and seizures is a great concept. Unfortunately, like so many other democratic reforms, it does not exist at Peru. For it specifically states in the room contract that the college may "inspect" your room at any time. It would appear that the college intends to exercise this privilige whenever it feels it necessary. In the midst of all this, a poll was taken to determine why offcampus students prefer to live off campus. To paraphase one student, who's answer quoted would be unprintable, 'Are you kidding, 1984 is a good book, but I wouldn't want to live there.' It appears that off-campus residents are not subjected to the same type of jurisdiction as dorm residents. It may be brought up that alcohol in ones' posession on state property is a crime: Indeed this is true; yet by our student agreement, posession of alcohol in off-campus housing is illegal too, regardless of the age of the resident. Let us not forget certain other rules regarding student behavior that are set upon us. Such as visitation by a member Michael L. Kelly of the opposite sex to ones

apartment, coed parties possession of explosives, etc: THESE RULES SEEM TO BE IGNOREP BY BOTH STUDENTS AND ADMINISTRATIION, (unless of course one intends to ,enter teacher education). Why? As the saying goes, old traditions die hard. In the true style of a journalist, I have many questions and few answers. The hardest question to answer is one raised by a member of the faculty. "Why do the students put up with that kind of crap?" THAT I cannot answer. Success does not lie in rebellion, _but moreover in a rational reviewing of the facts. If an institution trusts you enough to enroll and carry its' name, if it grants you admittance to its residence halls, then logically it should have enough trust in you to allow you to run your life as an adult, for that is a big part of college. To those of you that will read this and shake your head and decry that what is, is and shall be, all I can say would be "I'm sorry, for somewhere alc>ng the line, you missed out." At the same time I must ponder; for with such. an attitude among many people, "thought-crime" is just a step away.

Today the festivities for Peru State College's 50th Anniversary Homecoming begin. TONIGHT "The Bells" will be in concert in the College Auditorium. Saturday is the big day, starting with the parade, then alumni teas, the Peru-culver-Stockton football game with the crowning of the queen during halftime, the Homecoming Play (The Tempest), and the Homecoming Dance, with the "Elastic Band,'' ends the day's activities. Yet even with a full weekend's activities planned, I have heard students talk of going borne this weekend. Students are always complaining about the fact that there is nothing to do on weekends in Peru, and then when a big weekend of activities is planned, they go home. Homecoming is one of the biggest events of the year, so we should try to have 100 percent student involvement. We will have many alumni, friends, and visitors on our campus this weekend, so let's try and show them a lot of student involvement on campus. Let's show the alumni that their old alma mater is not withering on the vine, that we are keeping the tradition of Peru State College alive. If you're nlanning on going home this weekend, why not change your mind and stay for a weekend? Who knows, you might have some fun. John M. Thomas



Never taking time to wonder about The endless time I had wasted away. Endless time, spent on nothing; Spent on nothing, in a nothing life. Then, when haunting dreams unfold, I became, not nearly so big and bold. Still never taking time to wonder about The endless time I had wasted away; I wandered nearer to time eternal. Chasing a lonely shadow of death eternal; Along many well-traveled paths of time. Time, dreams, eternity, shadows, me. Stop, look, listen, shadows, me.

Letter To The Editor We found the article in the October 15 Pedagogian entitled "Married Life vs College Life" by Mary (Vandeloo) Brook$ puzzling. WE hope the ideas set forth are not typical of married college women. First she stated "As a wife I have to perform certain duties such as cleaning the house, fixing meals, washing dishes and doing laundry." We would like to know does it have to be this way? One sex 1s no better at performing these duting than the other. So why must people assume that these roles are predetermined and eternal? Next she said, "Once we graduate it will all be over. He'll have his job and I'll be a housewife... " As if suddenly her life has ended - from henceforth she'll be known as a housewife with no identity of her own. It is sad when anyone continues to accept traditional roles than inhibit their personalities and potentialities. Women are not born into this world to be housewives. Society should not stereo type people or groups of people, for everyone is a human being and should have an identity of their own. Dianne Bodensteiner Edward Bodensteiner

Shakespeare Comes Alive On PSC Campus Something exciting and fantastic is occuring on the PSC campus for Homecoming this year. After being buried in the shadows for years, William Shakespeare is reappearing as a living, breathing happening. The PSC theatre group, under the direction of Randy Bolton, is presenting Shakespeare's The Tempest on stage. The Tempest, a culmination of Shakespeare's works, brings together all the joy, grief, celebration, greed and brutality of humanity. To do this, Shakes~are portrays a variety of characters ranging from kings and princes to jesters and slaves. In short, the play is a history of the world presented in

two hours. Because The Tempest is such a great play, the actors themselves must work hard to portray it at its finest. A series of warm-up exercises is done each night before rehearsal to rid the actors of tension and get them in the mood of the play. Afew of the warm-!IPS done are diaphragm exercises, sensitivity exercises and impromptu stints. One can see that although putting on a play can be fun and exciting, it is also a lot of work requiring the time and patience of everyone involved. Bolton and the drama group are trying to combat the mistaken idea that Shakespeare is stuffy and virtually impossible to understand or enjoy. It can be seen in the play that

Shakespeare wrote for all people, past and present. Many of the same questions that were asked during his time, such as, "Do we know too much?" "Are we becoming inhumane?" are still being asked today. This play makes an attempt to answer these questions. It isn't necessary to know a lot about Shakespeare to understand The Tempest. All it takes is an understanding of the emotions felt by all human beings. The Tempest was presented Wednesday and Thursday nights and will be presented tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. in the college auditorium. Be a part of the unique experience of seeing and enjoying Shakespeare live again, at his best!

so many school people in Nebraska" which could be "good connections for Peru graduates" he took the position. Two alumni returned to teach at their alma mater in 1956. Jack Mcintire, Assistant Professor of Physical Education, Head Cross Country, Basketball and Track Coach, returned mainly because his former coach, Al Wheeler. asked him. Also, because he felt< taem and still feels"that the school has a lot of promise. Lester Russell, Professor of Industrial Arts, returned to work under A. V. Larson, then Head of the Practical Arts Division. He also returned because "Peru State College has a reputation for good teachers and particularily so in the Industrial Arts Department" and he wanted to be a part of the teaching team. In 1955, the next alumnus joined the staff. .Mrs Louise Kregel, Assistant Professor of Home Economics, came because the position at the college was a chance for advancement and a challenge. She said she "enjoys working with young people. She also likes Peru because the teachers can really come to know their students, who aren't just a number." It was 1960, some five years

since an alumnus had returned, that Mrs Faye Brandt, Librarian . and Associate Professor of Library Science returned to Peru. She had a "soft spot in her heart" for the school and also felt it had an excellent academic program. She wanted to do her part in teaching students who would become more of the "fine teachers from Peru." In 1963 Leland Sherwood, Associate Professor of Art, returned to the college. It was a chance for him to move from high school to college level and also a chance to live in the state where he grew up. He likes Peru's location: "close to large cities and yet with a rural atmosphere." He also likes the ''conservative midwestern philosophy on life" so much like his own. Two alumni joined the teaching ranks in 1965. Clyde J .. Barrett, Head of the Humanities Division and Associate Professor of English, feels that there is a "tendency to return to the area you call home." He had always taught in the midwest, never father west than Colorado, east than Arkansas or north than Nebraska. He likes the scenery around Peru and enjoys camping and hiking in it. He also likes the small college atmosphere because you "get

acquainted with the students." Miss Bonnie Rutz, Assistant Professor of Physical Education, says she felt a "deep loyalty to the school" and she had "good times and good friends" here cluring her undergraduate days. She likes the fact that "everywhere you travel you find a Peruvian or someone who knows one." The existing Peru State Student Center building was opened in 1961. On Memorial Day of 1918 a Soldier's Memorial was erected on Cemetery Hill to commemmorate the Peru men who gave their lives for their country in World War I.

The first Principal of the Peru State Normal School had a salary of $1500 and the Preceptress of $800. The only resources 0£ the Peru State Normal School at its beginning were tuition, incident8Is and room rent. A dollar and one-half was charged for incidental expenses and four dollars per term for room rent.

emetery Walk Bears Signatures If you've ever walked on the right side of California Street toward the Mount Vernon Cemetery you've noticed that ;the sidewalk bears the names of different people, businesses, and organizations. · In 1919, the people of Peru .decided to pave a sidewalk to the cemetery since the Soldiers' -· Memorial Trail could not be used when it was wet. The • Cemetery committee decided to raise money for the construction by letting the people buy a 4 foot block for $10 each. In this block . their names, businesses, or organizations could be engraved. Some of the donators ·were: Barnes ·Pharmacy, the Neal Family, Peru State Bank, and the Sophomore, Junior, and Senior classes at Peru State at the time. The walk consists of 362 blocks and was completed on July 18, 1919.

That same year 1,000trees and shrubs were set up along the Trail. A pipe line was later laid to water these other improvements. The Cemetery Board and Ladies Cemetery Association paid for the $450 water line . But the Cemetery is not all graves, imprinted names on sidewalks, and water lines, but also memories to past Peru State graduates. George Gates, a 1935 graduate of Peru, remembers the cemetery as being a popular place to go with your girlfriend. ,;When there weren't any plays or football games students would go up to the cemetery with their lunch and blankets and, spend the day", Gates recalls. The top of the cemetery also offers peace and an excellent view of parts of Missouri and Kansas.

Looming high above the science building is an inconspiCuous silver dome, probably the function of which is unknown. Flash-this silver dome is the college observatory! "The observatory is on a track which can be turned all the way around. There is a slit over the roof which can be opened and any spot in the heaven can be observed. One can not look down, however." This description of the unit is-given by Dr. John Christ, Dean of Natural Sciences. · "The telescope -in the old observatory is probably the oldest in the state, "Dr. Christ continued, "At present time it is not in working condition." Mr Victor Kingery, who teaches astronomy as well as

physics and chemistry, now uses a telescope purchased last spring. This spring it will be used for the second time when astronomy will again be offered as a Wednesday night class next semester. Usually astronomy is offered every other year. The new telescope, which is described as a 6" reflector, is portable and is used in front of the science building or carried to the roof, according to Mr Kingery. Dr. Christ commented that although the old telescope is an average instrument, the new one is probably more effective than the older model as they now know more about grinding the lenses. The old observatory, the "silver dome'', originally was located solidly on the ground

near the water tower. This site did not prove advantageous and in 1929, when the science building was constructed, the college moved it to the roof of that building as housing for the telescope there. Astronomy was one of the first science courses offered, but eventually interest declined and it wasn't offered for some time. Interest was revived, because of Sputnik and more recently because of the moon landings. The science building was recently remodeled, but the old observatory was excluded from the plans and lies neglected. Both Mr Kingery and Dr. Christ expressed hope that the old observatory could be restored to working condition in the future.

Spe·cial Services Chet Benefit Unnoticed Nichols Praised

Peru State houses a division known only-as Special Services. It is doubtful. that any Peru student graduates without some contact with some facet of Special Services. This department is headed by Donald K. Carlile. Mr. Carlile graduated from Kansas State COllege with a Bachelor of Science in Technical Journalism. He also has training iii both mechanical and editorial aspects of daily newspapers. Special Services, as described by Mr. Carlile, is the link with the college before a student gets there, through admission assistance and contacting prospective students, and then keeps the alumni informed after graduation. During the time the students are here, their activities are reported to hometown newspapers through :he releases distributed by this department. Pictures are taken by and distributed from Special Services for news releases, the Pedagogian and the Peruvian. All the printing for the college with the exception of the Pedagogian, the Peruvian, the general bulletin -and the handbook, is carried on here, plus all the distribution of the paper supplies for the college.

Files are kept on almost all Peru State alumni. There are files of graduates by classes, by geographical location, alphabetically, and a maidenname file. There are over 8,500 mailing plates, but it also must be added that many of the plates . include more than one person. As Mr. Carlile put it, "Peruvians have been marrying Peruvians since ages past." Five alumni chapters have been formed due to the contact of Special Services. They began in 1955 and hold annual meetings.

ALUMNI DEAN'S JEWELRY "Your Happy Little Jeweler"

Auburn, Nebraska



Lights· Turn On· Few of today's students would ponder the origin or workings of the necessities with which they are provided; for example the electric lighting on campus. But the students who remembered Peru's modest beginnings were appreciative of the administration's early efforts to provide this innovation. In 1891 the state legislature had alloted Peru State College $3,000 to build a light plant large enough to provide lights for the Normal School. The electricity produced prior to this was used only in experimentation. In the June, 1894, issue of the Normal Coutier, the Pedagogian 's predecessor, tribute was paid to the man who carried out the construction of this plant: "By his untiring efforts Dr. George L. Farnham secured the effective working of the plant and now the school building, library, and ladies' dormitory are lighted by electricity."

This appleselling at all home football games is an annual project of the club. A prospective project for this year is establishing a Child Daycare Center in Peru. Club members have appointed a committee to check into state regulations and· requirements and to seek a possible location. This type of center would financially benefit Peru mothers.

Brown's Pottery In F.A. Exhibit An exhibit of pottery by Jim Brown, operator of Brownville Pottery, will be displayed in Diddel Exhibition Court of Jindra Fine Arts Center from November 8 to 23, according to Leland Sherwood, associate professor of arts. A resident of Brownville for the past three and one-half years, Brown has built his own commercial-size kiln and has been producing stoneware and raku pottery. He utilizes some native clay in his operation. The exhibit at Peru State will include functional as well as decorative pieces ranging in size from coffee cups to large vases. Some of the pieces are designed .for table use. · Mr. Brown came to Brownville from Colorado State University, Fort Collins, where as a student he studied with Bill Alexander, potter. While in Colorado he was associated with a pottery firm. A native ot Omaha and a graduate of Creighton Prep, Mr. Brown won th•~ top award at the Walnut Hill 1,µt Fair, Tarkio, this past summer. His works have been exhibited at the Old Market, Omaha; Doris Roberts Gallery, Rock Port, Mass.; Barn Gallery, Kansas City, Mo.; and the Carriage House Gallery, Brownville.

Any event can be interpreted differently b} different people or, as I learned last Saturday, by the same person in a different frame of mind. I attended the alumni luncheon at noon in the Student Center Saturday and sat down among the people with a pen and notebook looking for a story. I had quite a few things on my mind besides the luncheon. I was thinking of the Nebraska game coming up, work later that day and so on and as I looked around desperately for a story angle, decided there was none. Early in the week I looked over the few notes I had taken and discovered, upon thinking back in a different frame of mind, that there had been a myriad of stories, there; mine for the taking. For instance, the stately, gray-haired gentlemen with a.badge that read "1917". Or a tall, friendlylooking man who used articulate gestures while he sooke. This became more meaningful upon learning that the gentleman was a former congressman. Perhaps the warmest story of all was the elderly lady who clutched an old but remarkably wellpreserved Peruvian like it was her most important possession. And it probably was for those fleeting moments. I watched her as she went from person to person, table to table, pointing at pictures within. I couldn't see the pictures but I could imagine them, which is often kinder than ~igbt. It's true probably that all these potential stories were in themselves small and not really newsworthy but together they constituted really warm and honest feelings, something that_,peed never be in short demand or supply. Looking at it from another an~le, there was a table there with a sign on it that simply ;.read "1901". That table remained empty all day. But that's another story.

Ron Johnson Issue Editor No. 9 Dept. Of Amplification Took a toot to the north country this weekend after I saw the Bells concert. I was regaling thefamily about what a won· derful concert it was when Uncle Lunk took a peculiar interest in the encore the Bells performed. "War starts cause people act like my cattle, they'll take what you give 'em," he said, "and they don't give a darn. Can't figure out why those kids would · stand and clap 'we don't want no war."' I immediately jumped to Peru's defense," But Uncle Lunk, 'Sing a Simple song of freedom,' is a good song." "You're right there son,'' Uncle Lunk replied, "that's just what is is, an awful simple thing . to do instead of doing something about it. People who don't give a hoot about any_thing except singing songs while they're doin everything anybody tells 'em to do without questioning it or trying to think for themselves I think starts the wars. I felt sick about how they asked for the 'simple song' twice. They should start thinking about doin something." I must confessthatUncle Lunk had a point. I thought about it a lot. I thought of the Bells' last song and decided that was what Peru needed, "a miracle."

The limestone rock used in the foundation of the Auditorium and Science buildings was once the foundation of the Old Main building and was quarried about two and a half miles west of Peru.

Years Reverse Peoples' Roles Astrange twist of life has been discovered in the halls of Peru State's Education Building. Dr. John C. Jensen, Chairman of the Department of Education and Psychology brought to light an unusual turnabout in the roles of teacher and student. Mrs. Harriett Leech, Peru State Senior, graduated from Humboldt High School and later returned to Humboldt, NE to teach in the field of elementary education. Upon returning to Peru State to complete her Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education, Mrs Leech is presently student teaching as a part of her Professional Semester. And this is where the reversal of roles plays a part in the story. Supervising Mrs Leech's student teaching at the Humboldt High School is Mrs Charlene Tomec, Mrs Leech's former grade school student and Dr. Jensen's former college classmate.

Teamed with Trinculo, the jester (John Thomas) and the groveling monster (Willie Fairbanks) he seemed to prove that Shakespeare's comedy is still funny to a modern audience. The hard work of the cast in meeting the demands of the play and creating the added visual effects helped to make it a successful production.

This girl captured the hearts of the fellas at the Bells concert last Friday night in the college auditorium.

Bells Play Song Variety Happiness, joy, sorrow, brotherhood and peace were all a part of the meaning represented by the Bells in their songs in their Friday night concert. Five guys and one girl make up the group called the Bells. They appeared in concert in the Peru State College Auditorium, November 5, 1971, at 8:00 p.m. which was a part of the 1971 Homecoming Activities. The Bells are from Montreal, Canada, and are on tour to thirteen different colleges around the United States, in which Peru was one. Here are some comments heard from different students at Peru State College about the concert: Pat Schultz: I thought they · were good. I think we need more songs for peace and brotherhood, like they sang.

Debbie Barton: I thought the group was really great. They made the settings for their songs and made you feel what they wanted to get across in their songs. It really added to the 1971 Homecoming Activities. Chuck Smith: It was a good group. Linda Eichenberger: The best concert I've been to since I've gone to Peru. I wish we would have more like it. John Cobert: I really enjoyed them.· Evelyn Heebner: I thought they were really good. They got the crowd participating in their songs. Best concert I've seen in Peru. Mark Meinheit: I thought they were really great! Fred Morehouse: It was fantastic!

Following Saturday afternoon's 35-15 victory over the culver Stockton Wildcats, coach Joe Pelisek's only comment was "wish we had won nine more just like that one." Pelisek had praise for his team in that t~ey didn't give up and kept working harder and got better each week. He said he felt that the effort was not quite as much as the previous week when the Bobcats were edged by Wayne State 7-6 7-6. The victory broke a 15-game losing streak for the Bobcats ~nd was the first homecommg victory for the Peruvians since a 1965 win over Doane College. The season for the Bobcats ended with a 9-1 record. For Six Peru State seniors it was the fll)al game of their Bobcat career: Gary Ring, Louis Grasso, Steve Miller, Ray Waters, Paul Mulcahy, and Mike

Dukes. An intercepted pass by Gordon Thompson with 11 :01 remaining in the second quarter broke loose the Bobcat scoring. Thompson earlier in the season to his credit, ran 66 yards for the TD. Dan Cotton made the extra point. In the same period it was Desbien's turn to catch a Criger pass and run 36 yards for a TD. As the quarter was ending, Dan Cotton was forced to run from the punting postion and gained enough for a first down. Three plays later Criger hit Winkle for· the third TD of the quarter with 11 seconds left in the half. ' \ Culver-Stockton came into the ball game with a TP in the third quarter on halfback- pass from Mike Meyers to Dennis ~teele. Andy McDonald ran for the two extra points. In the fourth ·quarter McDonald made the second TD for Culver-Stockton

Bob Nykyforchyn kicked the extra point. , A blocked punt set up the scoring drive that started with 2:29 left in the game, Criger connected with Winkle on a 10 yard pass. Gus Krajicek picked off a pass, and seven plays later Kim Tennal went over for a TD on a 20 yard pass play.

One of the splendid events which shape man's destiny occurred when a small band of people, believing in the essential sanctity of their own being, went in search of a land in which their individuality might be the highest national value, .. before any arbitrary limitation or duty placed upon some men by the whim or design of others. They went in search of a land where they might live out their own commitment to their own ideal of human freedom. In.the purpose of their search, the human spirit found its ultimate definition, and in the product of their search, its ultimate expression. They found the land they sought, and it was a difficult land, but it was rich. With their sacrifices they brought forth its riches, and laid the foundation for a new nation. But more than that, they revealed a new possibility for the expression of man's spirit. In the sure unfolding of that possibility man has begun to experience a world in which he may do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with his God forever. F'or what those early settlePS established, we give thanks in a way which began with them. In their first years on the hard cold edge of man"1i bright folden dream, they were tried and their faith .. as t_ested, But when tbeir bodies faile_d, tbeir faith did not. The stark simple words on a sarcophagus in a little village on the seacoast of Massachusetts tell the story well: "This monument marks the first burying-ground in Plymouth of the passengers of the Mayflower. Here, under cover of darkness, the fast dwindling company laid their dead, leveling the earth above them lest the Indians should learn how many were the graves." Yet, because mankind was not created merely to survive, in the face of all hardship and suffering, these men and women - and those of the other early settlements - prevailed. And the settlers gathered to give thanks for God's bounty, for the blessings of life itself, and for the freedom which they so cherished that no hardship could quench it. And now their heritage is ours. What they dared to imagine for this land came to pass. What they planted here prospered. And for our heritage - a land rich with the bountiful blessings of God, and the freedom to enjoy those rich blessings - we give thanks to God Almighty in this time, and for all time. Richard M. Nixon Amid a land of plenty... Thanksgiving a time to pause and reflect on the blessings of the year gone by.

What Happened to the Money ? Questions have been raised by Peru state College students as to where tuition money goes and how it is spent. Also, of concern, is what happens to the amount allotted for yearbooks. Some students feel they have paid twice for their yearbook; once at registration, included in tuition and fees, and again to the yearbook staff. . Mr Alan Shipley, Business Manager of PSC, states that the tuition paid by students is "used to pay approximately one-third of the teacher's salaries. The rest of · school expenses are covered by State funds." Mr Shipley also stated that: "The Legislature and Board of

Trustees felt that with the in,crease of costs to instruct all the tuition should go to education , rather than. 'extras'." Because ,of this; the yearbook fee was ·dropped from tuition fees. "At registration next fall (1971-1972), students will have the opportunity to buY their annual, but it will not be mandatory ."states Mr Shipley. The annual fee will be considered an individual fee which will be added to tuition and fees if the st~dent wants a yearbook. 'For sever~ ~e~s Kearney ha~ had these mdividual fees for ·therr ann.ual and Chadron and Wayne will next fall." adds Mr Sh'1 1 Pey.

Only 327 Pictures Taken· It was announced by Nancy chance next semester if interest Stoll, editor of the 1972Peruvian, is shown. Miss Stoll reminds all students that only 327 students have had their pictures taken on that balances must be paid, and November 10th and 11th.

The editor But there is a chance that believes that the support of the students who have not had their student body determines the picture taken may have another quality and size of the yearbook.

Tom Froehlich Still Trying NT


What would you do if you've had two knee operations; one while in high school and another while at Peru? Why, compete on the basketball team, of course. Tom Froehlich is coming off his last injury as a result of the Bobcat's grid encounter with Tarkio. When questioned about the knee, he remarked that it was "about 70 per cent healthy." The interview itself was quite refreshing. He is the awshucks modest type of guy who doesn't

like to talk about his achievements. It took some prodding but this writer finally managed to have him talk about his prep laurels. He had won All-State laurels in both football and basketball while attending Garrigan High School in Algona, Iowa. He also won letters in three sports (football, basketball, baseball) being the only freshman to accomplish that last year, the · first in a some time at ~eru.

Promotion for next year's clinic will begin in the fall. In 1867, the Missouri River cut. through a narrow neck near Peru andformed a new channel. Early settlers attested to the fact that they had seen as many as one thousand acres of their best land go into the river within twenty-four hours.

Wrestlers Open November 30 Head wrestling coach Harlan Krein's wrestling team has begun workouts for the 1971-72 season. This year's team has the top three scorers for last year's team reporting for drills, in addition to six returning lettennen.

Although the experienced wrest! ers are returning, freshman wrestlers have offered stiff competition, according to Coach Krein. The second year wrestling coach estimates from five to seven starting positions may be occupied by freshmen.

Rod Wartman, last year's top wrestler with a 6-1 record, will hope to have another fine year. Larry Pracht, also a 6-1 performer on last year's squad, and Rick Black, with a 5-2 previous record, were second and third point scorers on last year's team. All three wrestlers have reported for workouts.

Last year's wrestling team, the first team ever for Peru State, held a respectable dual record of four wins and three losses.

Warren Goos, Jack Stanley and Rick Davis are other lettermen.hoping to; bolster Bobcat success.

but will probably. make devastating mistakes. In wrestling, one major error will terminate the match." Krein predicts the toughest opponents for this year's squad to be Nebraska Wesleyan, Chadron, Wayne, South Dakota Tech, Kearney, and Concordia. However, Krein continues with a note of optimism, "The. Bobcats will be competitive and WILL NOT admire defeat. If our wrestlers work all week to perfonn successfully for eight minutes, this season will be interesting. Our opener against Nebraska Wesleyan, November 30at 7:30 p.m., will be one of our Rreatest challenges.''

PSC Loses NAIA Title Peru, the defending NAIA District II Cross-Country champion, lost its title to UNOmaha who totaled 28 points while Kearney finished second with 63 points, followed by the Bobcats with 72 in Elmwood Park, November 12. Last year, Mcintire's harriers won the team title with 47 points. This yea:, however, the best finish for Peru was provided by junior Don Monzingo who covered the five-mile course in 27: 40 while finishing in 10th -place. Jack Weyers currently holds the course record-of 26:04 in 1969.


The football season is rapidly coming to an end and what a season it has been. There have been upsets and there have been close ball games that shouldn't have been close. This year has been a real bad one for the predictor and that includes yours truly. Instead of picking the scores and winners of the key games this week I will instead concentrate on two key games that will be played over the Thanksgiving Day holiday. First let's look at the game that will pit two great southern teams against each other. Auburn and Alabama will meet and this game is for all of the marbles in the SEC. The two teams have always been intense rivals and this year should be another great game. Alabama runs from the Wishbone-T offense and uses the ability of their great running back Johnny Musso. Musso has a supporting cast, but it is somewhat weak. Litt!~ Johnny is the key to the Crimson Tide's attack. Musso is a good runner when he is healthy, but his pain index is very low. The Alabama defense is quick and pursues well, this is a plus on their side. The Auburn team relies mostly on their Hiesman Trophy candidate Pat Sullivan. Sullivan is one of the top QB in the business. He can run and throw with equal authority. His favorite target is swift Terry Beasley who has the knack to catch the ball in a crowd. Explosiveness is the word for Auburn. Auburn 29 Alabama 17.

Peditorial . THE SGA HAS DISBANDED! !! This shocking bit of news came after the SGA members, or what was left of the members voted to disband at the December 7 meeting. It seems as though the SGA has been plagued with resignations for some time. The SGA is, or supposedly was the most powerful organization on this campus, and then they decide to disband because they aren't functioning. The big question at hand now is whether or not the administrative committees appointed by the SGA will remain, or whether they will be dissolved also? Do you as students really realize what it would mean if these committees were dissolved? It means that the students would have no representation in the administration. Also if the Judiciary Board is dissolved, who will the students appeal parking tickets to? This may seem like a minor matter, but it isn't, The Judiciary Board saves many students mal'ly a considerable amount of money each year. The SGA represents the student body, and now our representation is hanging in the ~alance~ On~ of the biggest reasons for the SGA taking such action, is because no one gives a damn about representation. Well it is about time some one started giving a damn! ! It's you the student body who should start caring. If w-e just sit back and not care, what will happen next? We have to do something about this mess, and it has to be done now! ! JOHN M. THOMAS



SGA Votes to Disband The Student Governing Association of Peru State College, at the December 7 meeting passed unanimously a resolution dissolving the SGA. Of 21 members, 14 were at the meeting, and voted on the resolution. The -resolution states, "Resolved; that the Student Governing Association of Peru State College be reformed so that the students on administrative committees shall constitute total membership, with the Judiciary Board still meeting every week." As to what will happen to the SGA at this point is unclear.

Debate Team Receives Trophy 'The Peru State debate team of Pat Castle, and Steve Long tied for second and received the third place trophy at the Wayne State Invitational Forensic Tournament last week end. Debating in the novice class, Long and Castle have participated in three earlier tournaments this season, according to Debate Coach J. D. Levitt. Two other debate teams from Peru State - Carol Muse and Devoe Manning, Julee Tillman and Dianne Forke also were entered in the debate and other forensic events. The tournament concluded the debate season at Peru State for the fall semester. Fifteen colleges and universities from a four-state area were entered in the Wayne event.

SCB Plans Skating Rink

s Stanley Gottula, Dennis Robertson, Vernon Hazen and Bruce Goodwin of the Industrial arts Club_ are aiding the student Center board by making the stakes for the ice skating pond. The pond is scheduled to be riooded as soon as it is cold enough.

An ice skating rink will_ be placed on the college baseball field through cooperation of the city, Chamber of Commerce, county, and, PSC, with the help of the SCB. IA students have been asked to help also. The rink will be 80' by 100'. The college maintenance department will help as much as possible in setting the rink up and maintaining it. Rules and policies will be set up in cooperation with the Peru Chamber of Commerce, since this will be a community project and not solely a college venture. The recreation committee of SCB, headed by Pat Prose is responsible for the initial idea and further organization and handling of the project.


Wilson's Book Hits Market Anew book, H. A. Vandercook the Teacher, written by Dr. Gilbert Wilson, associate professor of music, is currently on the market in Chicago. Dr. Wilson hruY first-hand knowledge of Vandercook, having studied with him after World War II. Mr Vander Cook founded the VanderCook College of Music in Chicago and developed a curriculum for teaching music in the public schools. In addition he was instrumental in starting clinics and summer camps for band students. The book arises from Dr. Wilson's thesis and occupied two years writing time and another year iri preparation for publishing. Mr J. D. Levitt. did the photography work for the book. This also consumed considerable time. according to Dr. Wilson; since路 some of the original photos were torn and muddy. Dr. Wilson feels his book is useful both historically and as instructional media and will benefit both teachers and students. The book tells the history of Mr Vander Cook his accomplishments, and his teaching techniques. H. A. Vandercook the Teacher will be reviewed in an upcoming issue of the Nebraska Music Educators Magazine and will soon be available in the Bobcat Bookstore for $3.00 per copy.

Goal in Final Seconds Puts Peru Ahead 61-60 Never, thus far into the season, have so many done so much so often. The Peru cagers defeated a taller foe, Doane, 6160, December 7, on a fade-away jump shot by Guard Rosey Washington with just seven seconds remaining settle the issue. Perhaps the Tigers received more than they had bargained for. Little did they know when they took the court that night that they were about to encounter a pack of hungry cats. The taste of victory still fresh from their conquest over Alvert Lea (Minn.) only four nights before. It was nip n' tuck all the way. It was that kind of a game. The contest started out as expected. The favored Tigers jumped out to an early lead, 16- . 13, after the first ten minutes. That lead grew to 26-18, an eight point bulge, their biggest lead of the evening. Then "The Pack" went to work, a 6-3 freshman by the name of Mike DeRuntz cut the lead to six, 26-20 on a shot just lll!derneath the hoop. Tom Froehlich added two more on a driving layup, while Bob Bowen had the audacity to drop in two free throws in a one and one situation to pull his teemmates within two, 26-24. The Tigers then got it together for awhile, building to 34-29. Afree throw by Washington followed by two

more by guard Guy Lammie pulled 1: 19 remaining in the half, enter one hostile coach from Doane (whose name escapes me now) who lost in a heated discussion with the officials, thus awarding Peru two Technical four shots that tied it up 34-34. The Bobcats entered their den at halftime ahead, 3834. Five minutes gone into the third period, the Tigers tied it up 39-39. With 13 '.38 ~eft to play, Rex Beatty fouled out. Peru pulled out in front again on a jump shot by Earl Brown, rebounding by DeRuntz and a host of others, until they led by 51-44 at the ten minute mark, Peru's biggest lead of the night. Peru's hopes took another nosedive when with 8:48 remaining Bob Bowen also fouled out. The contest was tied for the fifth time, 51-51 with 8: 11 remaining. From then on it was strictly run-and-gun for both squads. With just over two minutes left, the invaders pulled within one, 59-58. Dave Green took possession of an important rebound after Doane had forged ahead, 60-59. ·A missed freethrow by Washington gave Doane the ball with must 17 seconds to play. The Tigers were then called on.. over and back across the midcourt line, thus setting up Washington's last second heroics.

ATime For Reflection Last week in Northern Ireland, in the town of Belfast, a bomb exploded in a crowd of Christmas shoppers. Eighteen people were buried ben~ath a fallen wall. Beneath the rubble, frantic rescuers found four bodies, two of them were babies. In a land of violence, where senseless death has become a way of life, the inhuman slaughter of two children beckons thru the smoke of misunderstanding and hatred surrounding the turmoil in Northern Ireland. It is a cry, a plea that men live together in peace, where the only violence a child might see is an irate father over a report card. In eight days, Christians throughout the world will celebrate. the birth of their Messiah. The celebration is called Christmas. And in the midst of this celebration, Christians are killing one another and more tragic, children are dying. People shake their heads and sigh. Children flutter in the throes of agony and die. Christians sing of "Joy to the World," and of sleeping "in heavenly peace." In Northern Ireland, this Christmas will hold little joy to those who have lost loved ones thru death. . John Wayne once said something of great insight. To paraphrase him "Children are wonderful, too bad they grow up to be people." But two children in Northern Ireland will not grow up. Perhaps they have found their "heavenly peace." Shaloem. MICHAEL KELLY

Peru State SGA members Dec. 14 withdrew the resolution to reform the organization, which had been passed at a Dec. 7 meeting of the group. The resolution read: "Resolved; that the Student Governing Association of Peru State College be reformed so that the students on administrative committees shall constitute total membership with the Judiciary Board still meeting every week." College President Neal S. Gomon told SGA President Steve Long that he did not want students elected to administrative committees. In the past these members have been appointed by the SGA. The objective of the Dec. 14 meeting was to determine what the student body should do .about the current confused situation. About 30 interested students, Dr. Guy Rosenberg, Vice-President of student affairs, and Dr. Thomas Scherer, gliidance and counseling, attended the meeting, and opening action withdrew the previously mentioned resolution. The group elected Dr. Scherer and Mr Roger Salmela, history instructor, as the new organizational sponsors. President Steve Long proposed a new amendment to the SGA constitution, which would change the membership of the organization from representatives of the campus to the entire student body. The amendment reads: "The SGA shall be composed of a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and the Student Body." This amendment will be presented to the student body at second semester registration. This amendment and other alternatives will be listed so that students may vote to decide what form the SGA will assume. The reasoning behind this suggestion is that every student will have a voice in making decisions. This should eliminate the problem of students always blaming others. If this amendment is enacted, inaction is the fault of the entire student body. President Steve Long said he hopes this suggestion will bring the students together and they will work together for the benefit of the school and the goals of the students.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR When I first heard the S.G.A. had disbanded I asked myself can a few or possibly more apathetic students deprive the . whole student body of a student government? Also, isn't the S.G.A.'s responsibility to maintain meaningful com-· munication between the students and faculty? If this is true who will represent the student to the faculty if there is no S.G.A. The S.G.A.'s function is also to review and initiate rules governing student conduct on the campus. Since there is no longer an S.G.A. then there are no longer these rules which can put the student body in a helterskelter type of government.


I've been told a student that was attending an S.G.A. meeting was refused the right to speak at one of their sessions. How can the student be represented when he cannot be heard? My solution to this problem of no Student Governing Association is to give the power back to the student not to the few representatives because it is proven they don't know how to use their power. Let there be a President, Vice President, Treasurer, anc1. Secretary, but no represen· tatives. Invite all students to attend the meetings and be their own reoresentative. Let them vote on issues which will need a solution. If you care about your school, you will attend the meetings and participate, if not keep the complaints to yourself. This idea of electing parasitic representation must be stopped. Frank D' Addessa

On Monday, December 13, something new was tried at PSC. "The Token," an original oneact play written by van Wirth and Julee Tillman, and directed by Wirth was presented in the Exhibition Court of the Fine Arts Center.

The acting area was divided into three areas, an office,. a living room and a bus stop. Each of the areas represented a stage or facet of man's struggle. The theme was that of the hollow existence of man. This hollow existence is, because the demands of society drain life of all beauty and purpose.

Mr. Drama Person Leaving PSC Mr ~andy Bolton, drama instructor, will be ·leaving Peru State College at the end of this semester. He will have an assistantship in teaching and will be working for his PHD at Florida State University, 'falahassee, Florida. Before coming to Peru, Mr Bolton taught for one year at Dana College, Blair, Neb.raska. He attended college at Wilmington, Ohio, and received his Masters Degree from the University of Denver, Denver, Colorado. Mr Bolton's parting comments were, "I think the students should have more direct control over their social and academic lives at Peru State College; and teachers ought to relate to students as human beings. If the students don't take more direct control, Peru State College will die." This school has the potential to do some very innovative and exciting things but it is not doing it. There's too much dead weight."

Just got back from a toot to the north country where Uncle Lunk was regaling the family about how the SGA is finally getting something done. In his day they used to have town haII meetings where he used to come and vote on important issued. Now he says the town just got too big. "Them folks at Peru State CoIIege sure are lucky to be small enough to be able to still have an opportunity to have direct democracy," Uncle Lunk told us. I started thinking about direct democracy at Peru and decided it would be a good thing. People would represent their own interests then. They would have a direct say in what goes on at Peru. The students would start to work together and accomplish something as a whole, the way it should be!

Teaching, as is well known, is a difficult task. The teachers, ·in performing his functions, carries a dual responsibility of exhibiting his competence to both his peers and his students. The competence of a teacher is evaluated. The evaluation of a teacher's competence poses the responsibility of an accurate assessment. The evaluator's task is to make a value judgement as perfect as is possible. The duty of the evaluator insists on both competence and all available information. There are two groups who seem to be in a position to perform this task of evaluator; the students and the "professional educators." The first group, the students, by being directly influenced by a teacher in a learning process, is in a position to evaluate a teacher's competence. This is especially true of college students, who, by experience, have the ability to realize and appreciate the ability of the teacher's effectiveness in a learning situation. It should be reasoned, then, that c9llege students can be considered as one of the better qualified groups in the evaluation of a teacher. The second group, the "professional educators," by the nature of their profession, are "certified" as being "qualified" in evaluating teachers. There are then two groups that are in a position of evaluating a teacher's effectiveness. While examining closely these two groups, it would seem both are lacking in some respective area of evaluator competence. The students, while in an excellent position to determine the teacher's ability by being directly affected within the learning situation, lack the "credentials" to "qualify" their assessments. The other grup, the "professional educators," have the "credentials" to "qualify" their assessments, yet lack the involvement within the learning situation to actually determine the · effectiveness of the teacher upon the students. These "inadequacies" within each group in evaluating a teacher, should be alleviated. By the necessity of alleviating these inadequacies, it should follow that it is essential , to unit .the strengths, and thus the weaknesses, of these two groups into one group, into a Faculty-Student Evaluation Board. A Faculty-Student Evaluation Board, by its composition, would combine the important components of an evaluator which would produce the most accurate appraisal of a teacher. A Faculty-Student Evaluation Board would also have the advantage of tending to end any disagreements in an evaluation judgement of a teacher's ability. A Faculfy-Student Evaluation Board (at a college that functioned primarily for the education of future teachers) would have an additional advantage, it would make available a valuable experience for a student serving on an evaluation board. A cordial request for a Faculty-Student Evaluation Board at a college could be considered. The issues involved in not having a Faculty-Student Evaluation Board at a Teacher's college has repugnant implications. A decision concerning a Faculty-Student Evaluation Board at a college would imply the attitude which is held of the college students, at that college, as future citizens and future professional educators.

SGA Holds _Meeting The SGA held a meeting · Tuesday evening to decide the course of action for the remammg term. During registration a survey was taken. The student opinion was to revise the constitution to reorganize SGA to include full student voting rights. The people

voted into office last spring will remain until their term expires. Their main objective· for the rest of the school year will be to decide upon a plan for every student to have the opportunity for an equal vote. There are several positions to be filled at the present. Students are encouraged to file petitions for membership. Information about vacancies available and procedures may be obtained in the SGA office in the Student Center from 11:00 to 1:00 on Tuesdays and Thwsdays.

Helping Out ls ·Her Goal Switchboard operators often are bored with their job, or feel thit the noise and same old routine day after day will drive them nuts. This is not the case with Mrs Stephens, switch board operator and mail clerk at Peru State College. Mrs Stephens, who started working full time in 1962, says almost every phone call is different, and there is no time to be bored. The noise is one problem but she says that it doesn't bother her as much as it would others who aren't around it all the time. Mrs Stephens was employed part time by the college before hPing hired as a full time

A record breaking number of 185 students have been named to the deans honor roll for the first semester, with seven having a perfect gr_ade point average of 9.0, according to Dr. Guy Rosenberg, Vice-President of Student Affairs. The bean's Honor Roll consists of students with a grade point average of 7.25 ·or better. Special recognition was given to the 185 students at Honors Convocation, Wednesday, January 26, beginning at 9: 10 a.m. in the college auditorium. Dr. Kelly Liewer, Registrar of Peru State, preside<! at the Honors Program. The students with the perfect G.P.A. are Ralph Arnold, Stephanie Lang, Kathi McLarty, Roxann Runyan, Bonnie Stemper, Carol Wheeler, and Karen Sell. Eleven other Peru State students earned grade point

operator and mall clerk. She states that the addition of being mail clerk to her job has made it a little harder, but nothing that you can't stand. Mrs Stephens biggest problem is not being able to find people who are wanted by way of the switch board. The other noticeable problem is figuring up the phone bill at the end of the month, and figuring out who called where and to what department the call is to be charged. Mrs Stephens says that her job is one of enjoyment and pleasure. It's a chance to meet and talk to people and most important to her, to be of assistance to people.

Cold weather, ice, and swimming do nof mix, as found out by some of the students at Peru State College. Miss Rutz's eighth period swimming class, consisting of all girls, did not especially appreciate the cold weather Monday. The water was warm in the pool, as long as you stayed in it, the showers were nice, until you le~t them, and the weather was fine, until you stepped out the door. Immediately the dampened hair of the girls had ice hanging from every strand. As the girls

dashed toward their stopping places, their skin froze and the icycles continued to form. Their hair cracked with every move they made. The cold, icy weather caused other accidents as many of the students went tumbling to the ground, with feet and books flying everywhere. The sidewalks seemed to be supporting a few more people, as many were afraid to drive the hills of Peru. Salt was distributed by the handfuls, but by six o'clock that evening, it was refrozen and as ~lick as ever.

J.D. Gets Help This semester for the first time, the debate instructor, Mr J. D. Levitt, is being assisted in this class by practicum students. The topic for the spring debate has been decided that it is to be, "Resolved: That the Federal Government should ·adopt a policy of "Zero" population growth. The two practicum students have undertaken much of the

fundemental work required for debating. They have divided the class into two sections and the sections will oppose each other in future debates. Also, tentatively scheduled, some of the debators will travel to Meand, Nebr. to help judge an area speech contest on March 13, while the following day, they will aid in directing the District Speech Contest in Peru. · ·

Rink Constructed for Public Use Anew recreational facility has provided leisure time pleasure for the inhabitants of Peru this winter. An ice skating rink was constructed for public use in early December. A number of people including Paul Kruse, city maintenance workers, and industrial arts students collaborated in the building of the rink. Originally planned for the baseball field, the rink was moved to the tennis courts when a leakage problem developed because of a breakage in the tape binding of the plastic

sheets. Sponsorship was provided by the county which donated the planks and the city Chamber of Commerce which donated one hundred dollars for materials. A maintenance crew tends to the rink by supplying fresh coats of water <donated by. the city) whenever necessary. Anyone willing to brave the weather is invited to put on his skates and come down to the rink. The lights will be left on until midnight seven days a week.

Where Your Money Goes Once again an effort is being made to inform students of the use of the Student Program fees and Student Center fees. Student Center fees are used in payment of the debt on the Student Center · building. The fees are also used in maintenance of the Center. This amount is not at anytime used for any student programs. The Student Programs fee, assessed to all day time students, is used for the sole purpose of student entertainment. From the funds collected during second semester registration and a small amount remaining from first semester, the following programs will be sponsored jointly by the Student Center Board and Student Programs during the second semester: Two major concerts by Denny Brooks and Mac Davis, three dances, "Trash of the Thirties," seven movies, Ruane the Hypnotist, Dalsgaard the pianist, Palmerton art show, a car rally, and several other events not yet scheduled. Any student having any questions concerning these events is encouraged to attend a Student Center Board meeting any Thursday night at 5:00 p.m., in the west dining room of the Student Center.

REMINDER All Language Arts Majors must sign up in Mrs.

Wilson's office for the first discussion of the Language Arts Enrichment Program. The Discussion will be February 2 during Convo period over The Song of the Lark by Willa Cather. Participation in the program is required for all Language Arts majors. The yearbook is in trouble. This time it is not going to be taken away, but the problem is just as serious. People are needed to work on the Peruvian, desperately. Last year when the threat of extinction came up, many interested people came to the defense of the Peruvian, and it was saved. Where are the interested students now? There are some people working long hours to get the yearbook out this year, but these few people can't do all the work. More people are needed. Any student interested should contact Everett Browning or Nancy Stoll, this year's editor. It has been brought to my attention that certain young ladies have been sent to the Dean of Women for leaving their trash cans in the hallway overnight. It seems to me that there are more important things on this campus for the administration to devote their energy to. After all, aren't there more pressing problems than trash in the hallway overnight? It looks like the SGA is back on its feet. The new proposed plan that the students voted in favor of at registration could be very beneficial to the students of PSC. Putting the power of running the SGA inrhe hands of the students is the best possible way. of running the organization.

Where is our school spirit? The singing of the color song at honors convocation sounded rather sick.

JOHN THOMAS Social responsibility and adjustment are important in organizations for the education and enrichment of the Peru State College student. The system of working experience in an organization provides opportunity for the individual to develop a system of values and a concept of social responsibility to benefit his community. The general topic to be understood by an organization is

the entire internal functioning of the student body including its educational and social needs. Such width of understandng will enable organizations to best facilitate the scope of student needs. The varieties of individual understanding which are within an organization are and will, hopefully, be brought to a better focal point to best meet the needs of the Peru State College Community.

Dr. Singh Ag·rees The war between India and Pakistan concerned at least one resident of Peru, Nebraska. He is Dr. Balwant Singh, associate professor . of educational psychology at Peru State · College, who is originally from India. Dr. Singh is from Karn;il:,<· Haryana, India, ·which· is 230 miles southeast of the border with West Pakistan. His parents, three sisters, and two brothers are living in Karna! at the present time. Dr. Singh is now a citizen of Canada. He moved to Lockeport, Nova Scotia from India in 1962 and became a Canadian citizen in 1968. He came to Peru fu September of 1969 to begin teaching. The situation as Dr. Singh sees it was a result of West Pakistan's political and economic exploitation of East Pakistan. In the countries first free election, East Pakistan won a majority. Its leader, Sheik Mujibur Rahman, was arrested by West Pakistanis because he had won a clear mandate for provincial autonomy. . Sheik Rahman was released by the West January 17 and is now

India could not handle the economic strain by itself. Over 2,500 schools in India had been closed to house the refugees. Tensions had also developed from refugees seeking jobs in the Indian villages at lower wages than the local residents received. Dr. Singh does not endorse at all the taking of the law into the hands of an individual or group, but feels that these examples of reprisals by the Bengalis toward the so called collaborators are exceptions rather than the rule. "The go\ ernment of Bangladesh is doing everything it can to stop these isolated incidents of revenge," Dr. Singh commented.

R ITY Tues. Febr. 1

fn October of 1968 some of the lzell Hall occupants decided do something different and a io station ·was started. ne of the students was a hman, Mike Summers, who next weekend went to the dio Shack in Omaha and chased wireless F. M. crophone equipment and ·embled it. Later the first show was oadcasted on 102 F. M., oadcasting from Mikes' room. e station was named K.R.A.P. d the shows usually consisted music, phoney commercials d satire. In Mike's second year at Peru e station remained at the same ation but moved to Majors all. More than three years have ne by since K.R.A.P. had its rst broadcast and Summers is w a senior majoring in urnalism. His station is now at 4 F. M. because it broadcasts ter but he is back in room 102 Delzell. Late last semester he oadcasted a documentary lied "A Riot in Peru", which a satire of last years' water wing episodes at Majors ll. H. G. Wells' "War of the orlds" was also aired on the

station. The station broadcasts up to :!OO feet, which means it transmitts to all of Delzell and to a few nearby homes. Since Mike's graduating next semester, K.R.A.P.'s future is in doubt. His idea of keeping a radio station in Peru was to place a transmitter in every dorm with a central studio. He went to the Circle K club (who had a radio station) for support. But the club told him there was a lack of enthusiasm for a college radio station so Mike was reluctant to experiment with his idea and soon gave it up. Mike is planning two specials for this semseter, one is a collection of jokes which is a Laugh-In type program called "431" Corny Jokes". The second special is still being planned. If you're wondering if the station is legal, the answer is yes. When buying. the transmitter Summers recalls that there was a paper which stated the F.C.C. (Federal Communications Commissions) restrictions. They were that the programs must be operat~d o~ a blank portion of the radio. dial and could not be more then 100 milli-watts of power and no profanity could be aired.

"Wow! What a vacation." "I didn't have to feel guilty bout not studying because I had thing to study.'' "The new system is great but I ish there were still midterm ades because they kept me on y toes. This way in some of my lasses I had no idea of my grade ti! finals came out." The above comments are pica! of many student replies the question of how they liked e new semester system. Everyone seemingly enjoyed e three-week period of no udies. The students. were also ady to start the second mester when they returned in nuary. There were two frequently entioned negative aspects of

the new system. One aforementioned complaint was that no mid-term grades were issued. It was felt by the majority of students who mentioned this that even though more book work was involved, mid-term grades should be reimplemented into the current system. The other basic complaint was that there was no break from the time school started until Thanksgiving. By the time Thanksgiving did' come, everyone, including teachers, were so tired that all they seemed to be doing was waiting for vacation. Some students felt that a long weeken!l during the latter part of October would have been beneficial.

In 1970 Many people may not know the interesting story of how the wrestling team got started in 1970. "We got our mat in the first part of December, put a notice on the bulletin board, and started from there," coach Krein said. The team won its initial match last season, and finished the year with four wins, and three losses. Krein believes that the team could· have gone undefeated last year because they should have won two of the matches they lost, and could have won the third. The Bobcats are a very young team in a very tough conference, and are in what is known to be the toughest district in the state. There are no seniors on the team, just three juniors, six sophomores and 11 freshmen. The team should be heard of for / some time to come. · What America really needs is more young people who. will carry to their jobs the same enthusiasm for getting ahead that they display in traffic. A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes that he has got the biggest slice.

The Bobcat wrestling team, after a 40-9 loss to heavily talentedWayne State last Friday night, have just six meets to get ready for the Conference championships at Chadron on February 26, and the District championships at Wayne on March 3 and 4. Coach Harlan Krein believes that Wayne State will be favored, and should win the Conference race, with Chadron State probably placing second, and either Peru or Kearney State finishing third, depending on how the pairings in the various weight classes come out. Leading the grapplers so far this season have been undefeated Ken Boettcher at 142 lbs. and Kim Tennal, who suffered his first .defeat against Wayne State, at 158 lbs. These two, coach Harlan says, will be Peru's best hopes in the upcoming championships, and the best bets of any of the Bobcat wrestlers to go on to the NAIA final championships at Klamath Falls, Oregon in March. Although a whole team may be taken to the finals, Krein related, it doesn't make much sense to take a boy unless he finishes either first or second in districts, because of the tough competition in the NAIA finals.

Construction of the new Peru State bulletin board has gotten underway. The class of 1919 took the initiative action for the board at their 50 yard reunion in 1969. With the help of the classes of 1962-1967 and the classes of 1969 and 1970, the plan has materialized. The bulletin board, which is to replace the original one donated by the class of 1917, is estimated to cost 12 hundred dollars. The Peru Building and Supply Company is in charge of the construction. The design for the building was drawn up by Dee V. Jarvis and Gary Linden at the request of Don Carlile. The wedge shaped structure is to have two 36 x 72 inch sJiding glass doors, with a twelve inch deep display case on the north end. Lights are to be installed along the eaves of the roof. The purpose of the structure is to inform students of various events. Placement andintramural notices along with daily notices are to be posted in the case. A special spot in the case is reserved for "Tell the .World About Peru."

Reed Makes Conference Team

Sherwood only Art Instructor "Being the only instructor in the department has its advantages and disadvantages" commented Leland Sherwood the only art instructor at Per~ State College. The reason behind being the only instructor stated Mr Sherwood, is that the legislature had to cut down on spending, so the art department was one of the many who suffered. Mr Sherwood, when asked if it was hard being the only instructor mentioned that it is difficult to teach all areas of art and not just specialize in yo~ own area. Being the only instructor does create · hard feelings and cause many difficulties such as classes have to be limited to small numbers and consequently many students have to wait a year or two to get classes, and in the meantime many lose interest. With onlv one instructor, you don't get variety of opinion, it is hard to atlract students to the departmcnl, and there is really no room for those students who wanl art for a leisure course. O n the other hand, there are ;1dvantages. One being, Mr Sherwood is independent and he makes his own decisions on what ht· lhinks should be covered in each level of art. Since classes arc limited, Mr Sherwood gets to know and become close to many

Peditorial M?nd~y, ~anu~ry 31 I saw "Hair" in Pershing Aud1tormm m Lmcoln. I wish more people of all ages could see this beautiful production. When saying beautiful, I don't mean nice sets, beautiful costumes, I mean beautiful in the ideas presented. This production touched on everything concerning the youth oi today.

I was a little· bit surprised at the number of members of the older generation that were present. One comment heard was that of a matronly woman and her husband. They said, "There were some things we didn't understand, but once we got the general idea of the production, we understood what it was all about/' They remarked that there was one word used quite often wtrtch they understood. This word was an infamous four letter word, which is quite familiar in the vocabulary of college students. It seems as though people of all ages are familiar with this word which bridges the generation gap somewhat.

I am sure that all of the older generation present didn't like the production as ml.!£_h as the couple I have mentioned did, for there were some parts of the production that might have been offensive to many people. I myself saw 'very few leaving.

After seeing this prod9ction, I can see no reason for the city of Omaha not allowing the production into their "fair city". (I am sure that the Muse theatre or the Pussycat theatre are showing Walt Disney movJes now.) In "Hair" there were some pertinent ideas of much worth presented. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the very people who banned "Hair" from Omaha, went to Lincoln to see the production. Anyone who ever gets the chance should see this production. It makes you think about some things. It is truly the spokesman of the youth of today. It's f~ntastic.

Can she just use her master key, and open all the rooms and check things whether someone is there or not? Does she have the authority to walk right into our rooms, and go through our personal items? Even if someone has lost something, it isn't right to go through everyone's room and personal items, as it has been done just lately.

SGA Meets, Placement Office · But Invalid· Assists PSC Grads The Student Governing Association of P.S.C. did not have a quorum Monday, so a business meeting was im possible. Vacancies in the organization, caused by ab· senteees, was the reason for the lack of a quorum. The body tried to make several motions before it was finally pointed out by faculty advisor, Dr. Thomas Scherer that a quorum was not present and that therefore S.G.A. could not function. S.G.A. president, Steve Long said that the vacancies would be filled. However, since no meeting could be held, the gathering was termed a discussion. The business reviewed included confirmation of new swimming hours on weekends, which are 15 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and formation of a committee to work on an open house idea. Ultimately, the latter idea was dropped, due to lack of interest. -.... In the end it was decided that the new S.G.A. secretary Terri Fink, would contact the organ~zations not represented, and mform them of their position, and their alternatives involving membership. A meeting should be possible next week.

The Pedagogian

When a student graduates, or when one of Peru State's alumni wants to see about'a possible job -change, the man to contact is Mr Harold Johnson, head of Placement Services at Peru State. Mr Johnson is in constant contact with businesses and firms and attempts to get the employer and possible employee together by keeping account of who has job openings, and who is available to fill them. People who wish to use the services of the placement office must have spent at least one semester in school at Peru State, and must make out an application form with references from previous employers and · college faculty members if so desired. The applicant must also describe the type of work desired, so the right job may be found for him. Also the number of hours completed, and in what subjects they were in are shown

on the application forrri, whi then is complete. No, grad however are shown on completed form that is sent various companies for th analysis. When a particular job openi comes up, Mr Johnson can th send a person·~ credentials f that job to the employer, can then get in touch with applicant for an interview. terviews also take place here campus, as many repres tatives of various school syste and other firms come to Peru talk with students who will so be graduating. At the present time, Johnson estimates that slight! over 100 people are using services of his office. number however is expected at least double before the spr· semester ends.

Ever since it was erected in the early 1960's Major's Hall has been turning out some great men who will go on to become leaders of America, men who have learned about leadership by being R.A.'s and other who have learned by leading the men against the R.A.'s, and still others who chose to study while the fighting was going on. To these men the doors of Major's Hall will never be closed and their memories of this fine residence will. live long after the building has fallen.

Cats Shot Down

Title Hopes Fall

The University of Nebraska at Omaha cage squad managed to escape with a 74-69 basketball decision over feisty Peru Tuesday night February 1, at Peru. The loss all but erased the Peruvians' hopes of a Nebraska College Conference Title. At the end of the opening ten minute mark, the big boys from the mini-U held a precarious 2320 lead under the performance of center Merlin Renner. Peru remained close on the rebounding of Earl Brown, the combined shotting and rebounding of Ananias Montague, who shared game honors with Renner with 18, and key baskets by center Rex Beatty. Tom Froehlich, who finished with 15, kept the Pack in the contest when he was fouled while driving on a layup. The conversion knotted it at 35-35 with

Sports are Mr. Hahn's Number One Interest.

Politics, Journalism ~

. . . . . . . ~frQf'!J J)ac~ground ,

Mr John W. Hahn came to the United States in 1956 from Korea to continue his studies in Political Science and Journalism. He received his MA in Journalism. at the University of . Minnesota in 1958, and is currently working towards his PhD in Political Science. In his journalism experience in Japan he covered political affairs and occasionally court house news. Mr Hahn found this hard because of the left and right conflict in the country at the time. It was difficult to be an idealistic journlist because only the pro-government segment was allowed to exist. Mr Hal\n accepted the position at Peru State in 1968 because he felt that teaching in a rural area would be a unique experience. He had never lived in the country or small town at-

mosphere and he felt there were many things to learn. John Hahn enjoys his life at Peru and intends to stay here indefinitely. He is not a citizen yet, but has established permanent residency. His number one interest is sports. The United. States is unique he said, because it hosts year round sports activities. While in high school he participated in baseball, soccer, and track. .Mr Hahn was asked about his religious convictions. He believes that there is no essential difference between an individuals self conscience and ones religious beliefs. He lets his own conscience choose the more decent way to live. "If I were to state my philosophy it would be, God will help those who help themselves."

"American Dame", the 1972 spring offering of the drama department has begun production. The play, written by Phillip C. Lewis, is a narrative which concentrates on womens liberation. The cast, directed by Peru's newest addition to the faculty, Miss Pat Manley, has been in rehearsals for the past two weeks. Rehearsals will continue through February until opening night March 8 Sets are currently being constructed in the college auditorium by members of the cast and drama students. Apparently, the only major problem facing the show at this point is a lack of laborers to complete the set building chores. Miss Manley asks that all in-

terested students who would like to offer their help with the construction of sets and other backstage aspects of ·the production, please get in touch with her. Cast of play is as follows: Male parts - Mark Hahn, John Thomas, Bart Neri, Bob Olson and Mike Kelly. Female parts - Carol Muse, Joevette Farber, Lin Dee Raymond, Ann O'Connor, Julee Tillman, Barb Wilkenson, and Rhonda Preston.

Student Opinions Vary. on Professional Needs




A variety of opm1ons were made evident when various. Peru .State College students were asked about their professional training. When asked if she thinks Peru has given her enough preparation for her career, Marley Meyer commented, "I feel that college places loo much emphasis on a general education instead of instructing future teachers how and what to teach. More method classes would be an asset to the cirruculim. Kathy Boyle stated, "I do feel Peru has prepared me for a career in teaching. What I need now is more experience in the . classroom." K11thy student taught sophomores and juniors '0, n.u. . illil\n C.:.nni,u• llioh

A wide op1mon was given about the instructors at Peru. One person feels that some of the professors are using Peru as a resting place before moving on or retiring. Barb Carpenter commented, "At Peru you are an individual and not a number. As you start in your field the teachers will know you and the necessary help will be available when it is asked of them.:, Pat McConnell, who student taught fourth grade at Nebraska City said, "I think the student teaching program at Peru is good. At first I couldn't really see the necessity of methods classes, but aft er student tl'arhing awhile, you find yourself using some of the ideas ft·nm nwf hocls I hat vou didn't

realize you had picked up. The actual student teaching is the best class or experience I have had." Tyrus Gilliam, who is studying for a career in Business Administration feels that Peru has prepared him on what to expect in the business world, but he replied, "I still believe in experience as being the best teacher." An informal Valentines Day Dance will be held February 14 at approximately 8:00 in the school gym. Crackin', a local group from Omaha, will play for the dance. SCB is sponsoring the dance. and it is paid for by progrnm fees.

Debbie Elmlinger was recently chosen by students as Peru's 1972 Glamour Girl.





Editorial Comment by Bob Bowen . In the December 17 issue of the Ped, Dr. Gomon is quoted on the front page as saying, that he did not wish student representatives to administrative committees to be elected by the student body. Dr. Gomon did Qot say in that particular issue of the Ped how he would rather have those representatives chosen. He did make it clear that his administration does not want student representation on administra.tive committees which has the support of the student body, gained through the elective process. ·\ In my opinion, what Dr. Gomon is saying, is that he wants students on those cominittees who represent the administration, rather than the student body. . . A man of great wisdom once said, " can serve two masters." Consider the student who serves on one of these administrative committees. The student is on that committee because the administration allows him to be. He is not there because the student body elected him to represent its views before the members of that committee. I fail to see how such a student represents the student body, when the student body had nothing to do with placing him i.n a position of representation. The administration, however, did have much to do with placing the student in such a positiQn. ShoUld the student wish to maintain his seat on his committee, who does. he agree most readily with, who is he responsible to and finally, who does the student represent? Do you bite the hand that feeds you? When is student .representation not student representation? When the administration chooses the students whorepresent the students.

Letters to the Editor Govt. Plays Bingo? About two weeks ago, a group of yoWlg men huddled aroWld a radio in room 105 at Delzell Hall and listened as our government played a game of. bingo with their lives. In a so-called "land of the free", does the government have the right to control a man's morals and set odds on him coming back from, Vietnam as ail amputee or a casualty? In my opinion, we must do everything in our power to put an end to this senseles~ war by exercising our new right to vote for a man who will bring peace through victory, withdrawal, or compromise. And not one who de-escalates the war for purpose of reelection. If there must be a war, let there be a volWlteer army. H a man wants to go to college; let him. If a man wants to marry and have a family, let him. Ha man wants to fight; let him. And if a man does not want to fight, let hini have this right. And if no ··one wants to fight, then. the government should take this hint and withdraw from fighting. · Frank D' Addesa .How to Park. Parking at Peru State College has become a problem. Seems like no one knows· how to park their car. Why is it no one cares

about anyone but himself. Too often a car is parked over the lines just far enough so another car cannot park in the adjoining spot It is alsi> annoying to see choice parking places reserved for faculty aild maintenance that seldom drive a car to school. The way the parking lots look on some days, Peru needs to offer a course on "How to Park Your Car." Thank You .Concerning the letter to the editor which appeared in last week's Pedagogian, the members of the Drill Team would like to express their appreciation for the co-operation that has been shown in the. last two weeks in the using of the gym.

Add the yolks of the eggs, five pounds of flour and five pounds of fruit. Then add to it half an ounce of mace and nutmeg, half a pint of wine or some fresh brandy."

SGA Meets The P.S.C. Student Governing Association met and conducted business, last Tuesday February 8. Several new interim members were present, which made quorum possible. These new members are Chuck McKee, of Science, Wanda McKim, of Morgan Hall, Kathy Boyle, of Social Science, Rita Bosiljivec, of the Jr. Class, Daryl Obermeyer of the Fr. Class, and Roger Oviatt of the S.C.B. Some unrepresented eommittees have yet to appoint members. The first order of new business was discussion over the Kanecdo Trip. It was not determined who would fill the two vacant student positions on, the trip, which involves discussion over student decision making and its different aspects. This trip would be sponsored by the KansasNebraska Educational Consortium:> Other business included the filling of the following positions, Chairman of the Judiciary .Board, Mike Kelly, Financial Aides Committee Representatives, Gary Bowman and Terri Fink, Vice-President of the S.G.A., Mike Kelly and Education Committee .Representative, Sharon Cramer.

Kearney Cuts It Close By Jerry Steele

A man-to-man defense proved to be to no avail as the Antelopes' bulge stayed at 10, 72-62 with the same amount of minutes remaining. Just when it ap.peared as though Kearney would run away with it, the Pack began to close the gap. Montague, who took game honors iwth 24 points and 16 rebounds began to catch fire. Hardworking .Bob Bowen brought the Pack to within four,. 74-70, on a pretty 15-footer from the corner. With 4: 25 left on the clock, the _!lS

Peru Grapplers Crush Midland Heaven's to Betsy, Coach Harlan Krein, the next time you have a wrestling meet at Peru, at le11st try to make it a little more interesting. Evidently the mere thought of squaring off with a Krein Commando was a fear worse than death as four matches were won by forfeit for Peru on their way to a 41-5 romp over Midland College Monday night, February 7. R. D. Arnold (118), Rick Black (126), Randy Hanson 034) and Ken Boettcher (142) rolled up points by merely being there, thus enabling Peru to open a 24--0 bulge before even being challenged.

of the evening, 1-1, and heavyweight, Jim Rezac, pushed Peru's total to 41 with a 2-1 win. .... Krein's Commando's now own a 7-2 record, their only losses belonging to Kearney, who they defeated in their last meeting Wayne. They have beaten Nebraska Wesleyan, Bellevue, Doane, JFK, Kearney and Midland, twice. THE LIBRARY FOUND ACLASS RING FROM FAIRBURY JR. COLLEGE CLASS OF 1971

Louisiana State University has one of the first X-rated yearbooks. Included in the book was a photograph of ared, white, and blue marijuana cigarette; a series of satires on. such sanctions as motherhood, and four photos of nudes taken in art classes. The students love the book, but the state legislature is upset, to say the least.

This business of one point home losses has got to cease. Kearney wriggled out an 88-87 basketball decision over Peru this past Tuesday night, February eighth at Peru. It was just a week ago that Chadron slipped past 70-69 on a last second shot by Rick Brown. The win tied the Antelopes, who were 17-8 last year, with the University of Nebraska at Omaha for the Nebraska College Conference lead with a 4-2 conference record. Peru now stands at 1-6. It was quite a hassle though, .as the final score indicates. , To begin with, Peru had the Kropp boys, John and Tom, to contend with, and in.the end Tom proved to be the biggest thorn in the Packs' side. Big brother John entered the contest shooting a respectable .494 from · the field, averaging 19.2 a game. He finished with 22. Tom, meanwhile, was averaging 11 rebounds per game, he got his 11 rebounds along with 19 points. Little Kropp surprised me, he wasn't really all that good, then again he wasn't too bad. As they say, looks can be decieving. At 64 and 230 lbs., he appeared surprisingly agile. The first half, for the .most part, proved to be an endless stream of hurried shots and bad passes for both teams. With 10 minutes remaining, Earl Brown, fouled by little Kropp, cas'1ed in on a charity toss, knottmg it at 24-all. · · Shortly after, however, the Kearney machine started to move again. With 9:20 remaining they led by only two, 27-25. With 4:20 left they led by eight, 43-35. Time after time Brown, who worked the key well and finished with 15 points, scored on turn around jump shots. Ananias Montague connected to tie it for the third time, 45-45 with the clock reading 2: 23. Coach Gerald Hueser's club

Chadron Nips 'Cats A shot from the key, at the buzzer by Rick Brown gave Chadron a 70-69 victory over the Peru State Bobcats last Friday night. After leading by 11 points at one time, Peru managed to squeeze to a 32-30 halftime lead. But Chadron led by Brown (20 points) and Scott Jones (14 points) fought back in the second half and the lead changed hands several times. With less then two minutes remaining, the Bobcats held a seven point lead and the Eagles pµt on a full court press. The press was effective as the Eagles trailed by one in the last 14 seconds and held for a last shot when Brown scored for the win.

PSC Students Attend KANEDCO Conference At the recent Kanedco conference in Dodge City, Kansas, the question of student involvement was tackled. Peru took part in this conference along with 21 other schools from Colorado, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Kansas. The conference was held Mon. and Tues. February 14 and 15. The program opened with a talk by Dr. Don G. Creamer, Dean of Students at El Centro College, in Dallas, Texas. Dr. · Creamer spoke on how his student government was run, and how the students at El Centro College get involved. Afterwards everyone was divided into small groups; with Dr, Thomas Scherer leading one group.

Dr. Scherer's group discussed the two main issues, student mvolvement, and Student Government power, but could come to no real decision.on what to do concerning these two vital issues. A banquet was held Monday night with U. S. Congressman William Roy, M. D., present as speaker. Dr. Roy talked about the new responsibility of the 18 year old vote. Tuesday morning the small groups met again, and reported to each other on what they had done. Many students at the conference were disappointed in the amount of time alloted for student involvement. The PSC students returned home late Tuesday afternoon.

Peditorial I wonder how much pride we really have for our school. The heckling and obscene language which flows forth 'from the Peru stands at basketball games illustrates poor sportsman-like conduct and the infantile game of name calling. Those who use such tactics in order to gain attention to themselves and PSC must certainly gleam with pride. Let's not stop with one example of "pride and goodwill". Guests of students and prospective students have received abominable treatment from one housemother. Her smiling welcome and congenial personality all but castigate visitors for intruding into her secure domain where she may bellow and ctirse at will. She is a shining example of the peace, tranquility, and friendliness which are to be found on this campus. These reflections upon the college do not mirror an at.mostpher of higher education where students may thrive by their total environment. If you were educators or high school students visiting the PSC campus and were confronted with such happenings, what would be your opinion of the school? Would this be a school you would recommend to your students or have, interest in yourself? These and other similar atrocities must be halted. Pride for ,and in our school must be revived in order tQ secure the, longevity of this institution. This · activating force cannot be a few students and professionals but must include the entire college community. Therefore, the call goes out to you, the college community, to stand up for your school and help to reinitiate the practice of pride for and in Peru State College. Jan Axdahl Issue Editor

Denny Brooks Febr. 2 Denny Brooks, a rock concert singer with a magnetic personality, will be appearing at Peru State on February 24, at 8:00 p.m. in the College Auditorium. Mr Brooks' act actually is a conbination of rock and country music, plus a little gospel material, along with some folk songs written by some of the best contemporary folk writers in the business. Brooks, a 29-year-old Californian, has been touring the country for about 11 years and has shared billing with groups such as The First Edition, The Grass Roots, The Carpenters,

The Cowsills, Crow, Badfinger, The 5th Dimension and many others. In letters written to Variety Theater International Inc., the agency Brooks is affiliated with, entertainment, concert, and activities chairmen have hailed Brooks' concerts as the best that their College or University has seen in many years. One reason for this seems to be that besides his great'sinl!inl! talent. Brooks· · has a great personality that seems to captivate his audiences and hold them for the entirety of his act. He is obviously a great entertainer. Denny Brooks describes his

singing in this way: "I'm ballad singer, My greatest te dency is to slow things down \ you can hear on his magnific version of Joni Mitchell's "B Sides Now"). The rock tracks the album scared me to dea but it was OK because the so were really important." Brooks is a showman whos performances have captured th interest of audiences all over th United States. He has appear at many colleges and unive sities in the mid-west, and h received some standin ovations. PSC students will g their chance to see him Thursday of next week. Th performance is sponsored b SCB and Student Programs,

Letters to the Editor To the student who wanted to know why the Ped should be published every week when three-fourths of it is a:ds, here is the answer, The Ped is not threefourths ads! The ads in last week's issue added up to onefourth of the paper. That leaves three-fourths of the paper for straight news. If the person who wrote that letter would take the time to figure up the inches, he would see .that his conclusion about the Ped is wrong. The ads also pay for part of the printing which cut the college's printing expense. If the paper was printed every two weeks it would contain a majority of past news. No one is interested in old news! The paper is also used to inform students of coming events. That would be very difficult to do with a paper printed every two weeks,. when considering the time it takes to print the paper. The Ped is also used as an ·educational device. It gives journalism majors valuable newspaper experience and helps prepare them for their careers. When the advantages of having a weekly paper are weighed against the disad. vantages, it will be evident that the college -is benefitted by a weekly Ped - Carol McCabe.

The food in the Peru State Cafeteria has been the subject of unjust criticism in the past. During the Student Government Association's three-day trip to Dodge City, Kansas, for the KANEDCO conference, I found the food to be inferior to that served in either the Bob Inn or the cafeteria. Four of our meals were eaten in cafes in Kansas, the other three in the cafeteria at Dodge City Community College, none of which could be termed "average."

On Monday evening a semiformal dinner was served in the cafeteria at the college. The food, to say the least, was not of good quality. Being a commuter; I eat only one meal a day on the PSC campus. However, I can honestly say the average noon meal in the cafeteria is superior to the semi-formal dinner we were served in Dodge City.

Best Track Performances of 1970

Montague Nears Siefkes Avera

by Jerry Steele 1970 wa§ a very good year. That year three records were tied by the track team; the 100yard dash, the 440-yard dash and the Mile Steeplechase. A year which saw Naomis Ward and Elmer Reeves running the century in :09.7, thus tying a 30 year-<>ld record set by Jim Mather of Arapahoe in 1940. Reeves ran the 220 in 22.3 at Tarkio. In the 440, Calvin Smith had his best afternoon in a duel meet with Doane racing to a 49.l clocking. It 'seems only fitting then that Smith should hold the st time in the 880 last spring, ... 53.7 in the Kansas Relays.

.. Peru's answer to Jim Ryun, O'

Jack Weyers, recorded 4:08.l at the Kansas Relays, 9:11 in the two-mile at the Arkansas Relays and 13 :52.0 in the three-mile at the District II NAIA meet to capture three.

Leon Golden broke the tape in :15.6 at the Doane Relays in the 120 high-hurdles while Bob BoWen finished the 440 hurdles in 59.0 at the Nebraska College -Conferences meet for the best mark there. Bob also had a 1:06:9 clocking in the 480 shuttle hurdles in the Midland Relays to lead his teammates there.

Missouri State. Naomis Ward sprinted 70 yards in :07.3 at Northwest Missouri and :07.9 at Kearney in the 75-yard dash. Leon Golden completely dominated the hurdles; :07.4 in the 60-yard lows and :08.2 in the 60-yard highs, both at Northwest Missouri. :09.8 in the 75-yard highs was accomplished at Kearney.

Dave Harris tied an old record in the Mile Steeplechase with 4:56.9 at the Kearney Relays where he also had times of :44.2 in the 440 relay and 1:32.6 in the 880 relay.

Calvin Smith did it again in the 440, running the quarter in :51.3 at Missouri. In the half-mile, John Winkel ran a 2:01.9 at Kearney. 4:23 was the time set by Jack Weyers at Northwest and 9:28.2 in the two-mile at Kearney .

The Mile relay team, consisting of Smith, Nate Parks, Dave Bierbaum and John Winkel teamed up for a 3:18.4 at the Doane Relays. The ·Sprint medley team of Jim Hinton, Bierbaum, Winkel and Smith finished 3:29.2 also at Doane and Drake Relays. In the field events, Greg Winslow pole vaulted 12'1" at Nebraska Wesleyan. Mike Mulvaney best toss in the discus, 168'2" at the Arkansas Relays, 49'5"atTarkiointheshot.Jim Hinton threw the javelin 215'3" at the Drake Relays. Those were the best outdoor performances, now for the in-

Mike Mulvaney tossed the iron ball 48'22" at UN-Omaha. In the broad jump, Mike Dukes leaped 20' 4" while Bruce Brummer high-jumped 5'10112" both at Missouri.

The pack will visit Tarkio this coming Monday, February 21st. In the opener for both clubs Tarkio dropped the 'Cats' 74-53. According to a Tarkio College newsletter, Owl guards Mark Dalbey, a sophomore, injured an ankle and Jerry Lapsley, a freshman, injured a leg and ~ee during a recent practice. Whether or not they will be ready for battle come Monday is questionable. - The big guns to watch are Jim Martin, Charlie Parker and Del Morley. The seasons' finale for the Pack will be against the Wildcats of Wayne, February 23rd at Wayne.

WAA Teams To Be Busy Now through March 11; the Women' Athletic Association is playing basketba~l and volleyball games with different colleges around the state and a game with Tarkio. Two games have already been played. One with Kearney and one with Maryville, Peru lost both games. The next basketball game will be played at 7:30, Febr. 22 at Tarkio. The volleyball game will be played at 3:00, Febr .18 at Offutt Air Force Base. Saturday,March 11, an all day tournament· will be held at in Tarkio. For additional information concerning when and where the games are being played there is a schedule of games in the gym.

Cl0 se Gam e Terry Cadwell drilled in a 10footer with three seconds remaining to give Bellevue a 6866 decision over a flat Peru basketball team Tuesday, February 15th. So much for that so-called home court advantage. The Pack missed on too many free throws - three too many to be exact - as they converted only 14 of 29. The Bruins, on the other hand,hit an amazing 18 out of 19. In the end, those .co.nversions from the foul line proved to be the deciding factor., but you don't think about those misses at the time, only until it is too late. The cagers had all kinds of problems. Ananias Montaque hit a co1a speu early m u1t: game before recovering to tally 24 points to take game honors for the umpteenth time. Earl Brown missed numerous close shots as the Peruvians trailed by nine, 29-20 with 3:10 remaining in the first half. Baskets by Montaque, frosh Mike DeRuntz and Tom Froehlich cut the margin to five 33-28; at the half. Neither squad could gain the upper hand in the opening

minutes of the second half. A free throw by Bellevue's Larry Cihal tied the score at 38-all, the beginning of a close series of ties. Four turn-<>vers in the last four minutes, two coming in the final minute and a half, allowed the Bruins to forge the seventh and final deadlock at 66-66 with 17 seconds. The Bruins then wisely worked the ball for the last shot, finding Cadwell open who let it fly cleanly through the net. Looking back for a moment, the personal wars got hotter in the last half as the contest turned into a give-and-take affair. Bruin Dan Howard lost both battles- in rebounding and points to Montague. Ananias gathered in 11 rebounds and 24 points while Howard could muster only eight rebounds and 11 points. Forward Ed Larson got the best of Brown with 12 rebounds and 19 points. Brown finished with eight retrieves and seven points. Peru, which has failed to win at home this month, has its last opportunity tonight against Mount Marty in the home game .finale of the season.

His average has fallen off just slightly, now scoring 25.8 points per game, 491 for the year. Bernard Brown still leads in rebounding, averaging 18.9.

European Jobs Open to Students , Job opportunities in Europe this summer . . . Work this summer in the forests of Germany, on construc.tion in Austria, on farms in Germany, Sweden and. Denmark, on road construction in Norway, in Industries in France and Germany, in hotels in Switzerland. Well there are these jobs available as well as jobs in Ireland, England, France, Italy and Holland are open by the consent of the governments of these countries to American university students coming to Europe the next summer. Every year, the program has been expanded to include many more students and jobs. Already, many students have made application for next summer jobs. AmericanEuropean Student Service (on a non-profitable basis) is offering

these jobs to students for Germany, Scandinavia, England, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, and Spain. The jobs consist of forestry work, child care work (females onlyl; farm work, hotel work (limited number available), construction work, and some other qualified jobs requiring more specialized training. The purpose of this program is to afford the student an opportunity to get into real living contact with the people and customs of Europe. In this way, a concrete effort can be made to learn something of the ciI!ture of. Europe. In return for his or her work, the student will receive his or her room and board, plus a wage. However, student should keep in mind that they will be working on the European r<'onomy and wages will

naturally be scaled accordingly. The working conditions (hours, safety, regulations, legal protection, work permits) will be strictly controlled by the labor ministries of the countries involved. In most cases, the employers have requested especially for American students. Hence, they are particularly interested in the student and want to make the work as interesting as possible. They are all informed of the intent of the program, and will help the student all they can in deriving the most from his trip to Europe. Please write for further information and application forms to: American-European Student-Service, Box 34733, FL !1490 Vanduz, Liechtenstein (Europe).

Alcohol, pollution, drugs, and child abuse have been the topics covered by field trips to Omaha, taken by the Contemporary Social and Political Problems class under the direction of Dr. George Schottenhamel. The purpose of the field trips is to give the students first hand knowledge of social problems. When covering alcohol, the group visited.the Island of Hope and the Open Door Mission. In the past it has been the job of the Mission to give food and shelter to those who need it. This objective has now been broadened to incfude rehabilitation. The Island affords to alcoholic;s the opportunity to quit his habit of drinking. Medical aid and guidance assistance are given those who enter the program. The alcoholics who enter either of the programs do so on a voluntary basis and are under no obligations to complete either program. Omaha's pollution problem arises mostly from automobiles. It is estimated that on the

average every family owns three cars. Large industries have taken initiative and installed pollution control devices within their plants. The City Council meeting attended by the students, also covered the process of condemning buildings to give way to new enterprise. The third visit to Omaha by the class was spent at the police department. During the past three years drug arrests in Omaha have doubled each year. Seventy per cent of the drug arrests are for marijuana with barbiturates and amphetimines accounting for the second highest arrest rate. The traffic of hard drugs has increased but not too greatly. Child abuse is one of the hardest offenses to prove. The victims are children and many times infants who cannot speak. Doctors, though required by law to report abuse cases, often hestitate to do so. The juvenile department handles these cases. A tour of the police station completed the trip.

Sex Conferences Being Held Under the supervision of Mrs Virginia Miller, the college nurse and Reverend James Bragan, Conferences on Sexuality are held every Wednesday night in the Christian Church basement located at 917 5th Street. Wednesday evening, February 2, a group of about twenty Peru State students attended a session led by Dr. Paul Scott of Auburn, Dr. Scott was substituting for Dr. John Krickbaum, the college doctor, who usually leads the discussions. Dr. Scott addressed the group about Venereal Diseases, the types and their causes. After lecturing, Dr. Scott conducted a question and answer period and later the group discussed the state laws on treating V.D. carriers and the possibilities of free clinics being set up for the testing of these diseases. Mrs Miller and Reverend Bragan feel that the group sessions will bring "the students' problems about sex out in the open" and "promote a more responsible attitude

No-Hours ABig Sucess SUCCESS has been the word used most to describe how NO· HOURS is working in the girl's dorms. When the dorm president's were asked questions con· cerning this, their responses were very favorable toward NO· HOURS. Kathy Boyle, dorm president from Morgan Hall, stated that , the girls have been most cooperative, and she is very happy about the success, besides the fact it gives· the girls more freedom. Charlene Harrahill__, president from Davidson-Palmer Hall, also stated that she was very · happy with the success in NOHOURS. Many questions were asked about NO-HOURS. One was concerned with sneaking in girls at night ON-Hours. Both dorms were happy to say that it hasn't happened as far as they know. The alphabetical order !Jf the names of those girls on the plan determines who will stay up each night. Chairwomen Ann O'Connor and Jean,nine Davis keep charts up to date on who is to stay up each night. It has been reported only three times that girls have forgotten their duties. The .time ~ls ~sually come in

on nights varies from 1:30to 3:00 on weekdays, and on weekends a little bit later. Over all the success depends on the girls, and so far they have been most co-<iperative with the NO-HOURS system.

Students Judge Speech Contest Tecumseh was the destination for four speech students last week who were accompanying Mr J. D. Levitt. The reason for the trip was to judge a Legion sponsored speech contest held at Tecumseh JrHigh. The four students traveling to observe the contest were: Lin Dee Raymond, Diane Forke, DeVoe Manning and Bob Wernsman. , The topic for . the annual oratory was any specific part of the constitution.

Lambda Group Takes Tour Control Data and the Omaha Box Company were visited February loth by seventeen members of Phi Beta Lambda and their sponsor, Mr Russell Beldin. At both companies the group received extensive tours and briefings by personnel and management. The keenness of competition which exists in the business world today was very evident. The .· students found that today's businessman is something other than a "man in a gray flannel suit." The students lunched at Coniglia 's where they were guests of Omaha Box Company.

Morrison-Becker Unsung Heroes When Bill Taylor asked Larry Morrison if he would care to help him take football statistics last September, Larry agreed. Taylor eventually quit his post and the now departed Sports Information Director Don Carlile, appointed him as Taylor's successor as Student Statitician. Morrison, however, new at his post needed help, for while he .was busy taking yardage statistics, someone had to watch the play by play. Enter one Tim Becker. When he became the sports editor in the .latter part of November, he needed help. He couldn't keep track of the numbers of field goals attempted and missed, turnovers, a shot chart etc. without missing other just-as-important factors, no way. - Morrison, a sophomore majoring in Business, says about his job, "When I was in high school, I wasn't really interested in sports, but with this experience I've learned a lot about the games which has built my interest." During the basketball games, Morrison tends to the chores of keeping a shot chart, field goals, and turnovers while Becker keeps track of the number of rebounds, fouls, and free throws. Immediately following the games, their work is only half done. They phone in the score to the Omaha World-Heraldand the Lincoln-Journal . Star newspapers, radio stations WOW, KFAB and KMA, Shenandoah. Iowa. The tv stations notified of the game's outcome are KETV, KMTV, WOW-TV and KOLN (Lincoln). The AP ·and UPI wireservices are also contacted. Every Tuesday, statistics must be sent to the National Association of· Intercollegiate Athletics, the main office located in Kansas City, Missouri, and to the NAIA District II secretary. Newsletters also must be sent to requesting Sports Information Directors at various schools. These letters contain a brief summary of the game; decisive factors as well as team and conference records. Becker feels that it is ex· · tremely important to not get excited during a heated contest. He, unlike Morrison, has always

been interested in sports. "I really enjoy my work and I really do think that the students should take a more active part in the activities that we do have. Becker, a native of Exeter, Nebraska, who worked alongside Morrison on the 1971· 72 basketball brochure, al8o plans to help assemble the 1972 spring brochure. Ben Rogge, the present Sports Information Director at Special Services, says of the pair, "They are very efficient. Even though they miss the excitement during the game, they seem to enjoy it."

When asked if they would care to perform the same function again next year, they both answered yes, their one concern being who will eventually succeed them.

Neuman Club Plans Made Future projects including a retreat was the topic for discussion in the only Neuman Club meeting held this semester. Other tentatively scheduled meetings were cancelled b&!ause Father McCabe was away on business in Omaha. Plans for the possible at -· tendance of a reatreat in Waverly, Nebraska, by club members was discussed. The retreat will beheld on a weekend in the near future. Any Catholic over eight years old interested in attending the retreat should contact a member of the Neuman Club. A fifteen dollar fee will be required. Father McCabe will obtain additional information which he will relay at the next meeting. Neuman Club meetings have been changed from Wednesdays to Thursdays due to interference with night classes. · High School Class Ring found behind Ed. Building Contact Mr Van Zant.


Wrestlers- Starving But Well-trained Have you heard the cafeteria food is improving immensley? If so, don't start celebrating yet. It's just a rumor being spread by the malnourished wrestlers. Many people wonder if wrestling is an individual or a team sport. Actually it's both. The wrestler is on his own from the moment he walks on the mat until the buzzer sounds. True, he may get advise and en· · couragement from his coach, his teammates, and the crowd. Yet; the outcome of the match is entirely dependent upon the wrestler's own performance, And at the end of the match the wrestler leaves with the knowledge that he has helped his team toward a victory or a defeat. There seem to be several popular misconceptions regarding the sport of wrestling. For example, "Only the strong survive," This is not necessarily the case, strength is not always the key factor in a match. Rather the winner probably ias a balance of skill, speed, experience, stamina, and determination,· as well as strength. Granted, some wrestlers get along well using just their s~rength, but the eventual A PERSON who talks about his {nferiors hasn't any. -Hawaiian Proverb

Weight, or the loss of it, is one of the most serious problems for a wrestler. It is not uncommon for the average grappler to lose 20 to 25 lbs. a season. The theory behind this is· that weight loss enables a wrestler to become quicker and more agile. Also, weight loss assists the wrestler in reaching prime physical condition. It takes extreme dedication for the wrestler to reduce and maintain this weight for the. length Of a season. So, the next time you see a hollow cheeked, hungry-eyed wrestler mentally devouring your <linner, smile. For now you know the sacrifices a wrestler must make for Peru.

What's The SGA Doing? The Student Governing Association held a business meeting Monday, and formed a committee to look into extending the male visiting hours in the womens dormitories. Appointed to head the committee was Debbie Barton. Other members on the committee are Ronnie Preston and Wanda McKim. Mike Kelly reported on room inspection and found that in general the sneak room inspections are just to check for neatness. The finance committee also reported as to where

our respective college fees go. This information was found to hP

Dr. 5cherer says:

Ped, What happened to the idea of revising the S.G.A. constitution to where all of the students would be members and wouldn't therefore be able to vote? . S.L. Dianne Forke was to report on that today (last Mon.) but she didn't show up. The matter is being handled by the constitution committee. At the Kanedco conferance Dr. G. Creamer said that this type of student government is the most effective . Ped: What is the S.G.A. doing now? S.L.: Aside from working on the constitutional revisions the S.G.A. is working on room inspec~ion and extending the male visiting hours at the womens dorms. Ped: Do you see the S.G.A. as a worthwhile organization? S.L.: As I said earlier this year, the S.G.A. has a great potential for action if people would get involved and help out. Right now I'd say that the S.G .A. is worthwhile for those people who get involved.

Peru State College's Student Government Association's main goal for the remainder of the year is to.. revise the present constitution. A group of SGA . .m'ember.-s have been appointed to serve as the constitutional Committee, headed by Diane Forke. Other colleges have been contacted by the committee to send copies of their constitutions. Suggestions will also be taken before presenting a new constitution to the student body in an open hearing. The SGA has been meeting regularly on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 in the Fine Arts Building, Room 212. The meetings are open to the student body. When asked what role he feels he should assume as路 the SGA sponsor, Dr. Thomas Scherer commented, "My role should be guidance and direction, but not dictatorship."





Students 5ay: Asurvey was taken to find out how students felt about the SGA. They were asked, "What has the SGA done for you." Here are a few opinions on the subject. Rich Watson: "I really don't know what it. has done for me, except in the case of the new weekend hours of the gym." Vic Vega: "The SGA is supposed to be the voice of the students; as a voice, I don't hear anything. Charlie Trailor: "I can't think of anything." Carol Muse: "Nothing." Bill Lynch: "A bunch of us tried to get SGA to mtorm commuters about activities happening on campus but they would not do anything." Bill Lally: "What SGA?"

"First time I heard about it was when they were trying to abolish it." Denise Nebola and Judy Frech: "They got me no hours." Gordon Thomson: "SGA never listens to the voice 'of the students" "They will listen but doesn't enforce or even try what students ask for." Tyrus Gilliam: "As a member it has taught me that it is needed and that more members are needed that will represent the students points of view and not there own." "One should be more open-minded in SGA." Lin Dee Raymond: "They paid for the porn-porns for cheerleaders and drill team." Ann O'Connor: "They donated money for a radio station."

PSC Ranked Third In The Nation Peru State has received an award for distinguished achievement by the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE). The award was presented in 路 Chicago on February 24, to PSC for introducing the Nebraska Head Start Supplementary program, a program which is innovative in meeting the needs of low income, disadvantaged students. The award, one of 10 given at the association's annual meeting, recognizes excellence in teacher education.

Peditorial Following the recent Denny Brooks concert, I overheard many comments. Unfortunately, few of them were favorable. If you were there, you probably ·witnessed the large segments of the audience leaving during the performance. When considering the ad.verse remarks, two questions are raised in my mind. First of all, I wonder if any of those people who were anxious to condemn the work of the SCB, who is responsible for contracting our entertainment, ever considered joining the board and perhaps obtaining what they consider to be better talent? Secondly, have these same people ever begun to ponder all that is involved in securing the concerts we presently have? When we have a concert, it is through the tedious work of the SCB and not the simple process of notifying some entertainer and being secure in the knowledge that he will appear on stage. Many performers discover the size of PSC and it's obscure locality. It is only logical to assume that this must make a well-known performer hesitant to appear. So, the next time you have a worthwhile complaint concerning the manner in which your entertainment fees are being spent, perhaps it would be more sensible to employ the.channels open to us and see if positive results are possible. We all realize that leaning back and criticizing is not too difficult, even a third-grader can do that. But, continued under-the-breath mumbling has never been known to accomplish anything of any merit.

-encompasses those involved in the journalism practicum program. The job of Issue Editor is far from being smooth and untroubled. Generally, he discovered he is Issue Editor three weeks in advance, so that as many arrangements as possible can be made beforehand. One of these arrangements that must be taken care of is finding material for prospective journalists to write stories about, and then assigning these stories to the various students in the journalism classes. He is also obliged to decide ten days before the paper is to be printed and what pictures he wants to have accompany the stories. Any stories to be printed in the Friday edition are usually turned in on Tuesday morning. After checking the article for grammatical and spelling errors, it is the job of the Newspaper Editing class to write headlines depending on whether it is to be a one or two column story. This edited copy is taken to the Nebraska City News-Press on Tuesday afternoon the Issue Editor, accompanied by the .Editor and Mr Browning, the journalism instructor and Pedagogian advisor, travel to Nebraska City. They then recheck the copy for typing errors and begin to lay each of the stories out in the order seen by the students each Friday. This process is generally completed in three to four hours. On Thursday, the paper is photographed and copied off. The next day, it is delivered to the Peru State Campus. The job of delivering the edition goes to the Beginning Journalism class. So, while you are reading this story, consider that it took approximately 7hours to conceive, write, print. edit and photograph it,_ while it took you only about 2112 minutes to read.

Yes or No?

"Right on!" was the response of Kris Rotter, a member of the Peru State Womens' Basketball team, when asked if she thought professional basketball teams should be organized for women. Peru State students expressed a variety of opinions on the idea of pro teams for women. Some thought that professional teams would be the next step since there are already ·teams organized at both the high school and college levels. The replies ranged from "It's great!" to "It will never work!" Women's Lib seemed to be an important factor in some of the answers. One girl stated, "I think men as well as other women would enjoy seeing competition between womens' teams. Why can't women play professional basketball if men are allowed to?·" The majority of the girls interviewed thought women should be able to have pro teams if they wanted to. Most of the boys seemed to think womens' pro teams could be organized but they wouldn't be as profitable and exciting as mens' pro teams. Jim Taylor said that "Mens' basketball has been in the spotlight for so long I don't believe womens' pro basketball would draw enough attendance to be financially profitable."

Phil Scharp agreed that- there could be professional basketball teams for women, but he didn't think they would ever be better to see than mens' pro teams. He felt.that not enough people would watch to make it worthwhile. One boy wondered what it would be like to be married to a female version of Pete Maravich. He decided if her income was anything like Pete's he wouldn't mind at all.

PSC Plays Important Roll In Head Start Program The year 1968 was a year of violence and protest in America. · Colleges were faced with the challenge of making their programs responsive to pressing social, educational and economic problems. Peru State College accepted this challenge by initiating and · administering a program for disadvantaged people. This is why P.S.C. was the recipient of the "Excellence in Teacher Education - 1972 Distinguished Achievements Award," for seeking to reform and introduce innovation in teacher education. The Nebraska Head Start Supplementary Training Program, under the direction of Dr. Rex Shelley, program director, was initiated during 1968. Mr Eldon Smith, assistant director, assumed duties with the program in 1970. Supplementaty Training is a national program administered by Supplementary Training Associates. Mrs Luvenia Sanders, currently working with the program in Peru was formerly a trainee from Omaha and assisted in the national program. The contracting institution fo,· the program in Nebraska is Peru State College. There are three basic functions of the program: improve instruction in the Head Start centers; provide career development opportunities; and

most importantly, encourage institutional change in colleges. . This · program serves Head Start staffs including teachers, teacher aides, bus drivers, cooks and social service aides. College-based instructional programs have been initiated in order to help low-income paraprofessionals become more effective in the Head Start centers. Participants in the program are typical middle-aged mothers with family responsibilities, and often belong to a minority group. In order to carry out training in each area, cooperative relationships with local colleges and universities were developed. Included among these are: Chadron State, Fairbury Junior College, Kearney State, Nebraska Western, U.N. at Lincoln, and U.N. at Omaha. One of the m11jor accomplishments of the program has been the development of an Associate in Arts degree in Early Childhood Education. This program was produced with the assistance of entollees, CAP directors, Head Start officials and college personnel who worked along with experts in child development and childhood education during the developmental phase. A major aspect which this program has been able to illustrate is that the success of an educational program depends

on the knowledge, dedication program depends on the knowledge, dedication and skill of the teacher. · Some faculty members have been recruited from the local communities. If qualified teachers were available from among the many minority groups being served, they have been employed. Due to the flexibility of the program, the college is entitled to recruit and select the most qualified person for each teaching assignment. Included in the program are classes suited, not to the college time-table, but rather to the individual and his availability concerning time and location. Depending on the locations served, classes are generally held on campus, in churches, public schools and in Head Start centers. Recommendations concerning location of classes, course sequence and selection of faculty are made by the Career Development Committees. In this way, the people involved and being served are insured a voice in the operation of the program. The two-year program for an Associate in Arts degree includes General Education, Early Childhood Education, supporting field and elective courses.




Student Fees Discussed Arecent legislative bill proposed that all student fees be prohibited in the colleges and universities in Nebraska. The bill arose from the controversy between the Daily Nebraskan University of Nebraska's newspaper) and the Nebraska legislators questioning the paper's editorial use of four letter words. According to Barry Pilger, the Editor-in-c;:hief of the Daily Nebraskan, the major controversy.arose over the World Revolution Conference being held at the University of Nebraska .at Lincoln and the editorials supporting that conference. ThE: Conference will host such personalities as Bobby Seale of the Chicago Eight to lecture. The Conference will be held at the University March 17 and 18. The Daily Nebraskan is supported by mandatory student fees which Bill 1271 is proposed to prohibit. The bill would not only. stop the collection of mandatory student fees at the University in Lincoln, but at all the colleges and Universities throughout the state. According to Barry Pilger the reason that the bill· is state wide is that Senator Stromer, who introduced the bill into the legislature, is playing political games. "Stromer has created a political football," Pilger stated, "and it still has air. Stromer has sights on D.C." LB 1271 is opposed, according to Pilger, because it would hamper the student's freedom to have what they want, like the World Revolution Conference at Lincoln. The Nebraska Student Government Association composed of student governments throughout the state, unanimously ·opposed the bill at a recent meeting of the Association. The chairman of the Nebraska Student Government Assocation and Pilger, along. 'Vith other students also testified opposing the bill ata legislative hearing concerning the bill. In an interview with the Omaha World Herald Pilger stated, "We're making a real effort in terms of balancing the paper. The paper is not being written with the legislators in mind. Our audience is the University community." Legislative Bill 1271 has for now been referred to the Education Committee. The Bill in part reads "A university or college in this state which is currently receiving state appropriations.... shall not require students at the university or college to pay any form of mapdatory student activities fee or charge. If the university or college collects or requests the collection of an optional student activities fee, to be paid at the discretion of the student, the proposed uses .... shall be put forth in detail in any literature by the university or college. The Director of Administrative Services, upon establishing to his satisfaction that any university or college has neglected or failed to comply with the provisions of this act, shall immediately suspend the payment of the state appropriations to the universitv and college."

PEDITORIAL Involverp.ent, what does it mean to you? Is it a word that has too much meaning or none at all? If the president of the United States doesn't become involved in rising manners, the United States would fall apart. Involvement has its place at Peril State College also. P.S:C. has many opportunities to get involved if only people would open up their eyes and look around. That doesn't mean sit back and let the other person do all the work, and you profit from the reward of success. Everyone must work together, whether the outcome is good or bad. So whenever you think something needs improvement at Peru, start by getting involved, P.S.C. has a lot to offer.

According to Earl Applegate, the owner, things are going good for Peru's latest new business. The only thing he says he needs is a good card game .... Amos Pump was recently checking on some facts with the National Bureau of Standards, and he came up with this interesting tidbit. One of the reports showed that women's body measurements have grown an inch in all directions in the past 30 years. The average used to be 34-25-36, and now the average is 35-26-37. It's good to know the government is keeping an eye on things ....For all of you poets, the National Poetry Press is conducting a contest to judge your poetry. Entries should be sent to: Office of the Press, National POETRY Press, 3210 Selby Ave., Los Angeles, Calif., no later than April 10th.

I hope the legislature keeps that in mind when making up the budget. . . .Speaking of the legislature, Peru hosted four Senators Monqay night, Senators Ziebarth, Carsten, Wiltse, and Burbach for a discussion. For those who didn't make it, you missed a good show by the Senators. There were some pretty good questions asked and the Senators had a pretty hard time trying to field them. There'll be coming back probably before the end of the year, look for posters and get in on the action ....Titus Pump was tellin about how the other day in the library he found a book, Social Justice by Willoughby (330.l W68) that had been used between 1924 tO' 1928 by three people and hasn't been since then.

Past Track Records Jim Mather of Arapahoe ran a sensational 9. 7in the year 1940 to become the first Peruvian to dip below the 10-Second mark in the 100-yard dash.

The oldest mark of them all, however, is held by Wayne Riggs of Shubert, Nebraska. Riggs sped to a sizzling 21.5 in the 220-

yard dash in 1934. That record has remained unbroken for 38 years. Calvin Smith recorded a 49.1 in the 440and1:53.7 in the half-mile in 1970 for the best time in those brackets.

Bill Snyder Area Boy, rry Willis' 't sound · rprisingly or second oring for

A real southeast Nebraska boy, that's Mr Bill Snyder. A graduate of Pawnee City, he began his teaching career in Johnson in 1965. He acquired both his B.S. and M.E.D. degrees at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. He married his high school sweetheart, and now he is the youngest male instructor at Peru. Snyder is essentially the same as most PSC students. He considers them the example of basically conservative, rural America. He had to work his way thru college as many PSC students do. Mr Snyder worked as a carpenter, fiber glass worker, ran a swimming pool, and even bused tables in a sorority house. Being conservative, Mr Snyder feels that working within the system is the only way to achieve significant change. Yet, his goals are the same as most people who see the need for and demand change. He wonders if Peru State has been a teachers' college for too long. He would like to see expansion into areas of public administration, and

In action, Boettcher ties up Bruce Brooks UN-Omaha, en route to a 5-1 decision for the 142 title in the NAIA District II wrestling tournament at Wayne March 4.

Ken Boettcher · Story of a Winner The leader this past season for the Bobcat wrestling team was Ken Boettcher at 142 lbs. from Omaha. Ken finished the season with a 15-1 record with his only loss coming to Loren Hansen' of Wayne State in the conference meet in the first round, 5-2. Ken avenged this loss in the district meet though when he faced Hansen in the semi-finals and defeated him 4-1. After defeating Hansen, Ken faced Bruce Brooks of U.N.O., a former Illinois state champion, in the finals, and won the district title with a 5-1 victory. Ken is a freshman who graduated from Omaha South. He started wrestling in the eighth grade at Bancroft Jr. High. At South in his senior year, Ken compiled a record of 25-7 and finished fourth in the state meet. When asked what he enjoyed

most about wrestling, Ken said, "It is an individual sport, and I don't have to depend on someone else to win. You get to express yourself because everyone has their own style of wrestling."

"Students a!ld faculty members must assume a greater responsibility for the direction of the school." Mr Snyder went on to say, "When something happens that you don't feel is in the best interest of the school, you have an obligation to express yourself." B\lt, "Express it to the right places." This may best express Mr Snyders' opinion on dissent. When asked about tenure, Mr · Snyder said that he had a fifteen minute sermon on tenure, but instead he summed up his views on tenure this way, "Tenure protects those who don't deserve protection." But he added that Peru probably has fewer abuses thru tenure than most other schools, in proportion. Mr Snyders' dissatisfaction with student evaluation of faculty is tandamount to his opinion of grades. The principle is good, but it "boils down to a value judgement." He spends an average of two hours preparing each hour of lecture material. That's not counting Sunday afternoons. "Teaching is what you make of it. ...demanding or easy." When asked for a personal opinion of himself as a teacher, he paused. "When things go right, I feel like it's all worth it,'' with a smile he mused "other times I feel like God couldn't ·have created worse."

Ken would like to move up to the 150 lb weight class next year, ,but said it will depend upon how strong he is, and this will depend on how his weight lifting program goes this summer.


He woul-d also like to go on to the NAIA Finals in Klamath Falls, Oregon. He definitely has the potential to do real well in the finals, but he would have to miss about a week and a half of school, and feels that school is more important at this point since this is only his freshman year. He believes that the finals next year will be held somewhere in the mid-west, thus giving him a better opportunity to go and not miss so much school.

The writers of the Pedagogian have a lot to owe to one man. He is Peter Zenger, who is usually not written about in today's world. The precedent he set in 1734 reflects the type of writing everyone reads today in their newspaper including the Ped. Peter established, through defying the British government when America was still a colony, that, truth is not libel. Arrested in 1734 because of the criticism he undertook of the British . government for their censurship, Andrew Hamilton became his lawyer. Even at that time Hamilton had a reputation of being a fine lawyer, and with his arguments Peter Zenger was acquitted. This was a major victory at the time and still the writers of today live by that decision.

Is there not a natural curiosity among folks to want to know the beginnings of things, and has not this desire often led to a search for truth that has rescued history from the obscurity of traidition?

Instead he spoke of something that has played an even bigger roll in his life, and that is his being a Christian. Pearson told of his Youth foundation, a foundation set-up to aid the young drug users, the teenage alcoholics, and homeless unwed mothers. His centers have helped around 10,000 drug users, and countless alcololics and unwed Mothers.

The second side starts off with "Me and Julio Down By 'lbe Schoolyard", a catchy tune about two boys getting mixed up with drugs. "Peace Like A River", "Papa Hobo", a song about a boy trying to make it in a big city, (It's carbon monoxide, the old Detroit perfume"), "Hobo's Blues" and "Paranoia Blues" make up the nucleas of the second side. "Hobo's Blues", the only instrumental on the album, combines Simon's fine guitar playing with a violin.

GOVERNOR Edgar D. Whitcomb of Indiana declares that unless "indiscriminate spending" by government is halted at all levels the system of government as we know it today will be destroyed. What is the "secret" of halting this "indiscriminate spending" as it' is practiced in Indiana? The only way to get relief for property taxpayers - a topic that is as hot in Nebraska as it is in every other state - is to hold the line or government spending. Holding the line, in case the government boys and girls don't know what it is, means exactly what it says. Governor Whitcomb tells something we have learned i™Nebraska: gover.nment can't give relief to property taxpayers by increasing other forms of taxation, like sales and income taxes. Relief has not been achieved in the past and it won't be achieved in the future. Who is demanding this fake "relief" for property taxpayers? In Indiana, at the insistence of this conservative governor, all governmental agencies have cut public payrolls and increased production. (Have any Nebraska bureaucrats thought of cutting payrolls and increasing production - meaning getting more work out of public employes!) Says Governor Whitcomb: "Every subdivision of government from the federal government on down is short of money because they are unwilling to establish limits beyond which they will not go for spending." Indiana, by tr"' way, is the only state that hasn't raised taxes since 1963. Before that all pressure groups banded together to raise income and sales taxes. That sort of "tax relief" has been halted at least for now.

Nebraska City (Nebr) News-Press Thursday, March 23, 1972

Reporter's notebook I asked a man at t~e Pio.neer bridge club the other evening if he attended the baseball games played iit the new Sun City ball park. "All of them," he replied. I wondered if it wasn't pretty hot to sit out in that 95-degree sun when the Giants lost to Tokyo 2 to 3 yesterday afternoon. I had turned down a ticket to the game because of the burning sunshine. . This fellow explained he sits in the back row and hoists his umbrella. That's an idea. Other fans, I note, take their golf carts into the stadium, park 'em behind the last row of seats, and enjoy things sitting there on the .Cushman cushi.on and under the' canopy. Nice, but there never is room.for any more cars; those people must go over there at noon.

+++++ DEL Webb, ·who built the ball park for the gal softball players and as an added feature the members of the Cactus spring training circuit, thought of the comfqrtof the Sun City fans. The seats are aluminum, the base contoured in a more comfortable shape than any church 'pew you have ever sat on, and the back sloped just right. (Why the builders of ·church furniture don't seem to worry about the comfort of the contributors is something I have never understood.)

+++++ YOU may not have read that Bobby Winkles, formerly Arizona State University baseball coach, now coaches for the California Angels, the Big League ball team. The other evening more than 6,000 fans turned out to watch the ASU Sun Devils take a 6 to 5 decision from the Angela, cUsguised as Salt Lake City for some reason I do not understand. · . Features of the game included not only the kids defe~ting the team of their former coach, but a triple play center fielder to second to first, catching a couple of the Angels before they could tag up. The Angels, by the way, didn't use too m?ny regulars in the game.

+++++ THE other day we had something in this place about cable television, the information given by Bruce Merrill, the speaker at the Rotary club. We have the annual report of the Lincoln Tel and Tel Co. on our desk which says LT&T as of January 21 this year, was serving 15,000 subscribers and 4,000 additional connections for a total of 19,000. The company's CATV operation, although showin~ a sli~ht reduction in J;i;icpenses, lost $695,910 last year, mcluding depreciation accruals of $521,382. The report pointed out, however, that there were $353,252 in income tax ~enefits derived from filing consolidated income tax returns.

+++++ THE report said that new federal CATV rules will permit the system to carry signals from two independent stations, in addition to the three networks. "There are several good independent stations that originate popular programs such as the ones located in Denver, Minneapolis and Kansas City," said the report. "Whether it is economically feasible to provide one or more of the independent stations on our Lincoln system or any_ other system will have to be studied closely."


ASC workshop will be held Lester Hohnroth, chairman of the Otoe county ASC committee, Olin Herzog and Norman Hull, both members of the county ASC committee, Herman Minderman, county executive director for ASCS and other office personnel will join County committeemen, executive directors and other personnel from the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service <ASCS) from throughout Nebraska at a meeting in Lincoin March 23 and 24 for the Nebraska State ASCS Workshop Conference. Speakers from Washington, D. C., on the program of the two-

day workshop conference include Elvin J. Person, deputy administrator, state and county operations, for ASCS; and Dale H. Helsper, northwest area director, ASCS, he added. · Sessions on farm program information, techinques on keeping farmers informed about program changes, and other aspects of ASCS work will be chaired by Lowell H. Hummel of Fairbury, chairman of the state ASCS committee, and by . W. Warren Marsh of Archer and J. Stanley Dodson of Curtis, both members of the state committee, Hohnroth said. Service at the county office in Syracuse will be on a limited basis during these two days. Weight-w at c hers are . fellows who favor amply proportioned chicks.

Answers to Employment Questions by


of Labor James D. Hodgson

C.Of-C:b cbn.fst:

Are Child Labor :Laws Too Stiff? M. B. of Springfield, Ill., Child labor laws seem to limit job openings for teen-agers. Why are they so stiff?

wr i t e s:

Dear M. B.: Child labor laws prohibit employment of minors under 16 during school hours and those under 18 in certain dangerous jobs to protect their educational opportunity and physical well being. D e s p it e these protective standards, about 95 per cent of all jobs remain open to teen-agers b et ween 16 and 18, and there are no restrictions for over 18.



D. W. of Tyler, Tex., asks: Can I hire migrant children to work on my farm during school hours if they come from another district where schools have already closed for summer vacation? Dear D. W.: Yes, but not

until after May 15 and then only if the child shows evidence that he has completed, his school work for the year at the school in his permanent home district. Otherwise, the migrant child may not work during the school hours of the district where he is living. J. B. of Los An g e 1 e s, Calif., writes: I am a member of a federal employes' union and believe I was denied my right to be a candlif date for office in that union. How can 1 appeal?

Dear J.B.: You must firlt exhaust certain internal appeal procedures as provided by your union bylaws and constitution. If these are exhaui;ted without result, you may then file a complaint with the Department of Labor and it will be investigated. If your complaint is

ANNAS A master plotter within the religious community of Judea and its ~apital, Jerusalem, was the high priest, Annas. Living under the shadow of Rome, and under· the civil authority of the governor, the high priest nevertheless had enormous power and control. He headed the Sadducees, a conservative group of elders . and priests who directed the affairs of the Temple and represented the wealth and vested interests of the Jews. Annas held the office of high priest for nine years, being deposed in favor of Caiaphas, bis son-in-law. Yet he was never out of touch or in fear of losing power ..His five sons became high priests and during the trial of Jesus he w-as the senior dignitary before whom the Prophet brought for questioning. He also threatened the apostles and their followers w-hen they testified to the Resurrection. Annas represented corrupt religion and his contest with Jesus was vicious and inevitable.

. fR_IDAY, APRIL 14, 1972

Taylor Named To Lt. Gov. Post Russell Taylor, juniOl' at PSC, was appointed lieutenant governor of division four of the Nebraska-Iowa Circle K district at the spring convention held at Nebraska Wesleyan in Lincoln from March 17th through the 19th. Russ was appointed by the '72'73 District Board of governor, secretary, treasurer, and other lieutenant governors. He will serve a one~year term. His basic duty will be to serve the chapters in his district which include chapters at Peru, Fairbury Junior College, Nebraska Wesleyan, University of Nebraska at Omaha, and the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. It will be his duty to instill initiative in the clubs, to act as the go-between between the chapters and the board, to help weak clubs and start new clubs. In addition to this, he will attend board meetings and report to the governor on clubs in the district. When asked how he hoped to accomplish these duties, Russ said that along with regular correspondence he hoped to visit each chapter at least once a year. He also said that a new chapter was likely to originate in the vocational-technical school in Council Bluffs, Looking forward Russ stated

that he would be attending the National Circle K convention in Denver, Colorado, from August '.27th to .~Jhis fall.'. Russ started his Circle K career as vice-president of the local chapter a year ago. During the currept year he has served as president. Carrying out the objective of being a service unit for the college and community, the local organization has been instrumental in securing the current events sign, benches for the lawn, and a scoreboard for the baseball field which is soon to be built. The organization has sponsored the local Cub Scouts, made a sizeable donation to the Humanities Department toward the radio station, and last Spring sponsored· hikers in the Crop Walk. Circle K is a service 9rganization through which college men and women can find a means of responsible student action in their communities and a more active involvement in the life of their campus. The con· cerns of tl!e organization result in a very direct personal service. Members are involved in activities that help people and serve the campus and community as clubs perceive needs they can effectively meet.

Major Webb and his wife Lyn, who is a registered nurse, have a. nine month old daughter, Michaela Frances. They are living in Nebraska City.

On April 18 at 7:30, Dr. James Todd, Mr Henry I. Freed, Mr Ward Reesman, and Senators Irving Wils.te and Cal Carsten will be on our campus for a rap session on the subject of "The Future of Peru". The last tWo rap sessions held on this campus had good discussions with interested students and .many things were brought into the open. This session should be even more profitable, since Dr. Todd, coordinator of the· four state colleges, and Mr Freed, president of the Board of Trustees will be in attendance. This is the chance for PSC students to air their opinions and possibly get some action. · Any student who really cares about the future of PSC,should attend this session. Many.people say that they don't care what happens to PSC, and to these people I would like to ask "Why then do you go to school here?" There are many things at PSC which should be looked into, and the only way to get this done is for the students to quit complaining to their fellow students and talk to someone who can do something. Go to the Fine Arts Auditorium Tuesday, April 18 at.7:30 and talk to the men with the real power. These men are sincere, or some of them wouldn't be coming back for a third session. They must have realized that PSC does need help. So, go Tuesday and actively participate in the discussion. It is your job as students to give your governing board some constructive ideas for improvement of your school.

Leon Russell and Marc &nno get it all together on Aylum Choir 11 (Shelter SW-8910). The album, however, belongs more to Russell than to Benno as the latter only co-authors a few numbers and supplies backing vocals . Asylum Choir 11 begins with "Sweet Home Chicago", which tells of the presidential convention four years.back and then into a sarcastic anti-Vietnam song called "Down On The Base". "Tryin To Stay Live" and "Ballad For A Soldier" (a song which resembles the Calley incident) are a couple of other anti-war songs. In "When You Wish Upon A Fag", (''Save the coupons, walk a mile, your lungs are getting tanned"), Leon shows he is also anti-cigarettes. Though most of the album was produced by the two musicians back in 1969, the lyrics and rriusic are still very contemporary. Asylum Choir 11 is


Religious Film Offered April 1.7 The United Ministries in High .<::ducation is bringing Pier Pasolinis ', "The Gospel According to St. Mathew" to Peru Monday, April 17. Admission is free and it will be shown in the ' Fine Arts Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. "The Gospel according to St. Mathew" is an internationally acclaimed award-winning portrayal of the life of Christ. Pasolini makes almost total use non-professional actors and only uses a type of actor when he feels it is necessary. The action was filmed directly on location with natural lighting

and a hand held camera. This gives the audience chance to become a participant in the action rather than a spectator. The film creates an overwhelming emotional, if not religious effect on it's audiences. It is intensely Christian- and totally without any commerical _concessions.

SGA Elections ~to be May l

Letters to the Editor After attending the last rap session, there have come to my mind more questions which I feel need to be raised and answered. 1. Who can.obtain a well-rounded education in a particular field when there is but one instructor in the department? This is not meant to discredit the instructors in the art, home economics, or journalism departments, but even they must realize their weaknesses. What can be done with this· situation? 2. Why is the coach with the "winllingest" team not being retained next year? To his credits can be added the very successful High School Invitational Track Meet which he nurtured fJ,'om 250 to nearly 2,000 high school students this year. Also well to mention is a most successful wrestling team, including the placement of one member in the NAIA finals What other coach .in the past few years can attest to such accomplishments? He led a strong defensive football team. Had the coach of the offensive team been half as successful, perhaps the records would have been better. Academically, he wrote and enacted the program for a recreational major. Not to be forgotten are the Community services he has rendered. Who is to take his place? I very much doubt if there is another person on the staff that could fulfill their own responsibilities and those of this coach. Is it fair to oust such a person because he has no tenure or are there other reasons? · 3. How can enrollment climb in an institution where courses are being dropped? The inadequacies of some of the programs must be obvious even to prospective freshmen. The entire academic program must offer students more than just the essentials of accreditation. With an improved cirruiculum, perhaps enrollment would stay constant, if not increase. 4. Is tenure outdated in the modern school system? Should an instructor be employed by our institution beCause he has tenure and basically cannot be fired or should he be employed because of his contributions to education? Not even to be considered for termination were those people with tenure safely tucked away in their little cubby holes. The new professors are the vktims yet even those who are not the newest were the ones to get the ax. 5. No system of rating teachers is employed by this school in which the students may voice thier opinions. who is better prepared to know who is a good teacher in the classroom - the student who attends classes or some other instructor or member of the college heirarchy who seldom if ever sees a teacher in -. motion? I would strongly recommend that a method of teacher evaluation be initiated at this institution in which students can voice their opinions concerning instructors. Something else which might be considered is a methods course for the instructors of this school. Professional semester students are exposed to effective teaching methods accepted throughout the nation. Yet classroom instructors rarely teach in up-Oated methods. H prospective teachers cannot see these new methods in practice, how can they go out and teach in the public schools when they have had no exposure to the methods other than through reading or movies? 6. There was much talk of splitting a salary between ad: ministrative and instructional budgets on the percentage of time each person spent in each area. I realize that this will consume part of the instructional budget left from retirements and cancellation of contracts, but what is being done with the rest of the administrative budger previously used to pay all of the salary of the administrator who will now teach part time? 7. Do we have an overabundance of administrators and, if so, where can cuts be made? 8. Why do inconsistencies appear between theBoard of Trustees and the administrative body of this college? Dr. Todd of the Board of Trustees said he did not know of any directive sent to the college not to consider tenured faculty for termination yet in talking with Dr. Smith, he assured me that a directive not to consider tenured persons was received. Another more obvious inconsistency was evident in the fact that the •college said that the cuts were bein_g made because of'li budget decrease, yet in reality there was an increase. Who can students believe? 9. I realize the Board of Trustees must rely upon the credibility of our administrators, but due to some of the things which have come to light, I question the credibility of the decisions reached and recommend the Board of Trustees do the same. The happenings of the past week have upset the atmosphere of tranquility for which this campus is known. In a way this is very good. This is really the first time this year students have actively become involved in an issue of any kind. Yet, at the same time, many people have been hurt. There must be a better method for determining the future of this college. Therefore, I will raise a challenge to the students, faculty, administration, and Board of Trustees to find this method so that the happenings of this spring are not repeated in the future. Respectfully, JANAXDAHL Last year, the government finally gave eighteen-year-olds the right to vote. But if this right isn't used propedy it is useless. If you think it will do nothing to bring about a change in our system, you're wrong.

Carly Simon is a pretty, young (26), rich (her father founded Simon and Schuster publishers), talented <writes her own songs and plays guitar and piano), woman who possesses a voice which sounds like Gracie Slick and Mary Travers (of late Peter, Paul, and Maryl put together. In her second album, Anticipation 'Elektra-EKS-75016), her talent and voice stand out the most of the above characteristics. The album begins with the hit · song, "Anticipation", a love song which tells that Carly doesn't believe in worrying . about the future of her love life ("So I'll try and see into your eyes right now, and stay right here cause these are the good old days"). Next comes "A Legend In Your Own Time", which tells how mommy tells sonny boy what he's going to be when he grows up. That's followed by my favorite, "The Girl You Think You See". In this song Carly tells how she'd be anything to please her man, ("I'll be insane, a mathematical brain, you Tarzan-me Jane, to please you"). Can you male chauvinist pigs dig it? The second side begins with a song about the world coming to an end called "Share The End''. Some parts in it sound corny, but I'm sure you've heard worse. Carly then goes into three more love ballads and ends the album' with Kris Krist!Jfferson's "I'v~ Got To Have You". Anticipation is a refreshing, new, different S(!und in today!s JlllUsic in which ·ten love songs< are done beautifully. · . . Carole King's last album, ;"Tapestry", won three Grammy Awards and has made at lasf count, sixteen million dollars. You might call that a tough act to follow. Unfortunately, her new album, "Music" <Ode-SP-77013), will not do as well. But Carole ~loes get an A in effort. · Carole combines the title song, "Music", with hit "Sweet Seasons" and adds a 1964 oldie called "Some Kind Of Wonderful", which she co-authored with Gerry Goffin in their era. During their time together King and Goffin wrote songs that the Beatles and Monkees used when they first started out. So much for trivia. With some help from James Taylor, "Music" isn't a bad album, but not as good as "Tapestry". through Southeast Nebraska. The next meeting of the Students: for McGovern will be Tuesday night, April 25 at 7:30 at Jim Bragan's home.

MAC DAVIS Mac Davis doesn't write songs - he "paints" them. The songs he paints in the listener's mind are the soul and the atmosphere of life which the 29-year-old songwriter-singer out of Lubbock, Texas, by way of Atlanta, Ga., has experienced. His songs exhibit the rich dynamics of pop while reflecting the touch o(a country poet. And, he's blessed with a voice most songwriters can't match. Recognition as a songwriter has been slow in coming due to hispractical use of aliases. He is just now writing under his own name. Heretofore, to avoid confusion with another songwriter, Davis wrote under , the names of Scott Davis (his son) and Mac Scott Davis. "But now," he says, "I want to be known by my own name." His musical track record is nothing less than phenomenal. Mac's recent songwriting credits include three hits for Elvis Presley ("Memories," "In The Ghetto," "Don't Cry Daddy"), a pair of hits for O.C. Smith ("Friend, Lover, Woman, Wife" and "Daddy's Little Man"), "Something's Burning" for Kenny Rogers and The First Edition and "Watching Scotty Grow" for Bobby Goldsboro. Mac's song "I Believe in Music" has been used for ntimerous TV shows and themes and has been recorded by many top artists. Among the singers who have reprised his songs are Sammy Davis, Glen Campbell, Andy Williams, Lou Rawls and The Lettermen. In addition, Mac wrote special numbers for Presley's first television special, as well as for two of his motion picutres. He was also set by producer Hal Wallis to l'rP.lltP. fivP ~1ina~ fnr

Paramount's "Norwood," starring Glen Campbell. Mac has a strong feel for country-flavored music, which can be traced back to his boyhood days in Lubbock and on his uncle's west Texas ranch. He refers to it as "just growin" up with certain roots. Like many of today's vocalists, his first training came while singing in a church choir. Yet Davis' development as a songwriter and performer didn't really begin until after he .had graduated from high school. While working during the day for the Georgia State Board of Probation and studying at night at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Mac somehow managed to find the time to form his own band. Hitting the fraternity trail from Alabama to the Carolinas to Florida, he was also writing songs and composing melodies by ear. However, at the age of 20, Davis decided to give up "running gigs with my rock 'n' roll band around the South because I had this image of being a rock 'n' roff singer at the age of 35, trying to make a buck." After· establishing branches from New Orleans to Miami, Davis was dispatched to Hollywood to head Metric Music, Liberty's music publishing operation. While at Metric, he wrote two songs that launched him into recognition within the industry: "Your're Good For Me," recorded by Lou Rawls, and Glen Campbell's "Within My Memory," ._ That.was only in 1968, and Mac Davis has been ascending ever since. He has refined his craftsmanship as a songwriter to the nnint


n....... ....,,,•. _ . . _·~'- . . __

artists and network programmers are clamoring for his material. One of the factors contributing to his success is the inherent subtlety of his songs. Instead of bitter rhetoric or strong protest, the Mac Davis lyrics are "eyeopeners," as he calls them, exemplified by "In The Ghetto." And now comes his first Columbia album, "Mac Davis: Song Painter," (in which he both creates and interprets the music), complete with three gold records, plus appearances on virtually every major TV show, nightclub engagements, and extensive college concert tours. Now Davis no longer has to worry about getting his name confused with anyone else's. At 29, relatively middle-aged in the music business, he's up and over, a performer in his own write.

The stage design is a virtual orgy of old-time lighting effects left over from the night they raided Minsky's with seedylooking potted palms, and the spectacular giant "Silver Screen of Wonders." Headlining the live stage show is "Miss Delores Del Vino, Spanish Songbird Supreme," who was born with a song on her ruby red lips and a perfect heartshaped beauty mole on her chin. Miss Del Vino will be singing and dancing her way into the hearts of all. as she is the "Gypsy

Europe." An extra added surprise will be the astounding · performance of "Mr. Swami Mindman, Master of the Mysterious," also known as "Hokus-Pokus to the Crowned·' Heads of Europe." His daring feats of mental agility and supernatural wizardry thrilled an entire tribe of Australian dwarf cannibals in 1934. (His last successful appearance.)) Also appearing in Trash of the Thirties! will be the amazing "Madame Belladonna, Serbian Cannonball Artiste and Bullet to the Crowned Heads of Europe." All her audiences get a big bang · out of Madame. · From gay New Orleans come the featured performers "The Juggling Jubilee Sisters: Cherries & Marie. . . .former Pinboys to the Bowling Alleys of 1the Crowned Heads of Europe.

The titillating climax of the evening occurs when the entire audience joins in a rowdy madcap celebration of New Year's Eve 1934, complete with gala hats, horns, streamers, and other goodies distributed to the audience gratis (yes-free!) courtesy of the management. Although Trash of the Thir· ties! was originally conceived as a half-time entertainment to be performed during a lunch break in the Scopes-Monkey Trail ... .it has risen above its original concept to become one of the top college comedy concerts in the land (however, the "Land" happens to be Armenia). Among the recent critical raves of the show have been ... "It runs the gamut of entertainment from A to B!" "On our campus, where the entertainment program is like an empty table - our kids gorged themselves on Trash, stuffed themselves with giggles, and gagged on their own tongues!" "I'm not a drug addict, a sadomasochist, or a nitwit, but somehow I enjoyed this Trash of the Thirties! " ' In keeping with this ex-· travaganza of cheap thrills and false glamour - the tickets are also cheap. (Free for P.S.C. Students with ID's, $1.00 for · escorted guests, $2.00 for general public.

Trivia Games


"M*A*S*H" Hailed as "the best American war comedy since sound came in, "M+A+S+H,'' 20th Century-Fox's irreverent look at war, opens on April 25 at the Peru State College auditorium. Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould and Tom Skerritt star in the production. The three stars are army surgeons who develope a lunatic life-style in order to function and keep their sanity amid the everyday horrors encountered in a mobile army surgical hospital (M+A+S+Hl during the Korean War. They are skilled and dedicated in their profession, but they are equally skilled in making a shambles of army·bureaucracy. Among the other players who share or are victims of their antics at the Army base are Sally Kellerman, the rigidly strict head nurse whom they transform into a warm human being; Robert Duvall, the overly pious major; Jo Ann Pflug, another nurse, succinctly described as "the sexiest in military history"; and Rene Aberjonois, the compassionate chaplain.

Salute to Arbor Day R. E. Wernsman TREES help supply oxygen we need to breathe. Yearly each acre of young trees can produce enough oxygen to keep 18 people alive ... TREES help keep our air supply fresh by using up carbon dioxide that we exhale and that factories and engines emit. .l'REES provide food for birds and wild animals ... .TREES lower air temperatures by enlisting the sun's energy to evaporate water in the leaves .. .TREES slow down forceful winds ....TREES camouflage harsh scenery and unsightly city dumps, auto graveyards, and mine sites ....TREES leaves break the onslaught of pelting raindrops on the soil surface and give the soil a chance to soak up water ....AND TREES provide for America's economic growth and stability. Lately man has shown concern for the future of Mother Earth. He has expressed concern that . his own existence may be threatened by breathing noxious air, listening to earsplitting noise, ilrinking foul water, anviewing graceless landscapes. In the midst of the environmental uproar, the TREE stands by - like a faithful watchdog - dispensing lifegiving benefits and lives on like a silent lapdog - taken for granted, and yet one of man's best friends. One of the first men to make a concentrated effort at planting trees, was Julius Sterling Morton. Born on April 22, 1823 J. Sterling Morton attended the Universtiy of Michigan in 1850. He received an honorary Bachelor of Arts degree from Union College in Schenectady, New York. Agriculture became an important part of Morton's life in 1855 when the soil on his farm just west of 'Nebraska City was first broken: Consideration for his farm occupied much of his time. He began beautifying the prairie land by planting all types and varieties of fruit and forest trees, experimenting to find out .vo

which varieties would do best in the soil and climate of Nebraska. Morton's endeavors to spread agricultural information and promote agriculture advancement was even more outstanding in the service of pioneer agriculture than his work on his farm. As an editor, Morton was a persistent advocate of an improved agriculture. In 1871, in the dedicatory address delivered .at the opening of the University of Nebraska, Morton told his audience, "One of the grandest of material labors i the reduction of untried lands to tillage." On January 4 of the next year, Morton . offered the following resolution to the State Board of Agriculture-: Resolved, That Wednesday, the 10th day of April, 1872 be, and the same is hereby, especially set apart and· consecrated for tree planting in the State of· Nebraska, and the State Board of AAgriculture hereby name it Arbor Day; and to urge upon the people of the State the vital importance of tree planting, hereby offer a special premium of one hundred dollars to the agricultural society of that county in Nebnfska which shall, upon that day plant properly the largest numer of tree; and a farm library of twenty-five dollars' worth of books to that person who, on that ·day, shall plant properly, in Nebraska, the greatest number of trees. The resolution was adopted unanimously. Arbor Day thus began as another effort to encourage tree planting in barren Nebraska. After Morton's death in 1902, the Nebraska legislature changed the date of Arbor Day to his birthday on April 22, and made it a legal holiday. And, that is why, during next week, the State of Nebraska, along with the nation, will celebrate the lOOth birthday of Nebraska's own creation, ARBOR DAY.

Mrs Sanders has some very modern ideas about dorm life. "The hours and no-hours systems are not very fair in these modern times, this police type of supervision is not ' necessary. By giving students more freedom, they can accept responsibility and there would be no need for housemothers, floor counselors, would be enough." Mrs Sanders also feels that the rwe ot segregating ·the boys from the girls' dorm is reinforcing a negative instead of a positive attitude. She also stated that people are afraid of antisocial kinds of activities, such as pre-marital sex, drinking, and drugs, concerning open visitation. The statistics from other schools that have open visitation show no higher rate of these things going on. "The quiet hours are very unrealistic, there must be a better syste"' cc,mmented Mrs Sanders, "Youth should have as much fun as they can." Mrs Sanders definitely fee1s that living in a youth oriented environment · has given her a different outlook on her own children. "In a sense all rules that are set up for them are not always to their credit. They should be given a greater responsibility for their conduct without surveylance of adult supervision." She has two boys, ages 16 and 18. Mrs Sanders will be con~ sidered a senior at the end of. the summer. Her major is in Early Childhood Education, w!iich was brought to Peru because of the Head Start Program. She· will come back to Peru as a regular student in the fall and will graduate in June. Other colleges Mrs Sanders has attended are Arkansas Baptist College in 1944, '45, and '47, UNO in 1951 and '52, the Head Start Program at Peru in the Spring and fall of 1968, Highland University, Highland, New Mexico in the summer of 1969, and last summer she attended the University of Utah in Salt ·Lake City, Utah, for a two week program.

Dissatisfaction with Dorms expressed STATE THEATEI AUBURN,N!HASKA

Carol McCabe Luvenia Sanders' disatisfaction with the restrictions of dorm life sound like all other typical PSC dorm complaints, "For quiet hours they yell like we're in an army concentration camp," and "This signing in and out at the desk is like something from the 18th century." The comments sound familiar but Mrs Sande~ is not a typical: run of the mill, dorm living student. Her first experience

with dorm life was in 1944 when she lived in a house, similar to a dorm, about a block away from the school she attended, the Arkansas Baptist College. The next try at dorm life for Mrs Sanders was in 1968 when she lived in the PSC complex while she attended a Head Start Program at Peru. Mrs Sanders retumed to Peru this semester, and has made a temporary home on the second floor of Morgan Hall.

About forty students and faculty members attended the meeting sponsored by the Language Arts Department in connection with their enrichment program. Rabbi Weinstein first gave a sketch of Jewish history so the audience would be better able to understand statements made in "Soul on Fire" by Elie Wiesel. "Souls on Fire" was the book most often referred to during the discussion. It had been asked of Rabbi Weinstein if the book "The Source'', was a true account of Jewish existence. About this he

said, "no one book can give accurate portrayal of what like being Jewish." When speaking about "So pn Fire," Rabbi Weinstein that while reading the book, 1things were obvious.

Sightseers Few ; Sights Numerous The Hills of Peru have been written and talked about ever since the first settler set foot on the beautiful landscape. From that time there have been thousands of students who have also appreciated the countryside's picturesque scenery. This legendary landscape offers many a foothiker the opportunity to see the land first hand. South of Peru, cutting across the town's dump road, are railroad tracks that will take anyone who is willing to walk a mile or two to cliffs along the · Missouri.

Students Honored At Convocation

Twenty-four students were . honored at the second semester awards convocation, which was held on April 26. Many of the scholarships and awards have been established by friends or families in memory of former Peruvians to be awarded annually. Those awards presented and their recipients were: A scholarship in memory of Janet Kaye Ganze! to be awarded on the basis of scholarship, citizenship and helpfullness to fellow students by a member of the Peru Social Science Society. The Society chose Duane Stevenson to receive the $50 award for 1972. Susan Cottier was awarded the Zelma Wonderly scholarship, worth $50 for 1972. This fund was established shortly after the death of Zelma Wonderly, a graduate of Peru State who taught 2nd grade in the campus school for nine years. It's purpose is to encourage future elementary teachers. On recommendation of the Social Science division, the A. B. Clayburn Memorial Award of $100 was made to Debbie Stoll for 1972. This award was established in memory of A. B. Clayburn who served as a professor of geology and geography at Peru for 40 years. Mary E. Fisher established a perpetual scholarship fund in honor of her sister, Elsie I. Fisher, a 1906 graduate who taught for 39 years in the Omaha Public Schools. Richard Bacon was the recipient of the award for a student in Art Education, in the amount of $75. Sharon Kramer received the Lura Hendricks Eichler memorial Kindergarten Education award.

The faculty named Robert Wernsman to receive the $100 award for 1972.

In 1969 the Peru Achievement Foundation established the Helen Cole Pollard Award as a tribute to the charter member of the organization, founded in 1955. The award is presented to a senior in recognition of demonstrated loyalty and service to Peru State College. The fourth annual plaque was awarded to Karen Sell, whose name will be inscribed on the permanent plaque in the President's office. Duane L. Stevenson was presented the Louise Mears Geography Award.

Cheerleaders Reorganize The cheerleaders have become an organization and have created their own constitution. The action came last week as the SGA approved of the cheerleaders constitution after many persona had discussed the issues and effects this move would have. A week early the student government had rejected the constitution because many members felt that Article IV sections five ans six were too strict. The sections state such conditions for a cheerleader for her to remain one as there shall be no tardiness for practi e of performance, no excuse c m be given for not attendi1ig a practice or game, no gum chewing while cheering, no profane language, no smoking or drinking in uniform in public, no • unnecessary conversations with · the crowd or team, no leaving or sitting during the process of a game, and no cheerleader can . have insufficient knowledge of the cheers. The decision came after a spokesman for the cheerleaders stated that the group felt the restrictions not to be too severe and that if the cheerleaders became an organization then they would have their own budget and would o loger be funded through the SGA funds. According to the constitution the cheerleader's purpose will be to promot~ school spitit, to develop a sense of sportsmanship among the students, and to build a genial relationship

·between and among all schools during all athletic meetings. Selections according to the new constitution will be determined by the active cheerleaders, faculty advisory committee, and. , sponsors. Originally the cheerleaders were selected by a vote of the students usually during convocation early in the spring.

Studenu Campaign Three students and two sponsors of Peru State College Students for McGovern joined in a caravan Saturday, which traveled through Southeastern Nebraska, campaigning on behalf of the South Dakota Senator. Mr and Mrs . James Bragan, Carole McCabe, Daryl Obermeyer and Joevette Farber took part in the campaign. The caravan met in the city park at Cook, where they assembled and were led by Mrs Izma Seeba, a McGovern delegate for the National Convention. From there the eight car assembly traveled to Sterling where they caravaned the business district and parts of the residential area. The group then traveled through Tecumseh in. the same fashion. The members of the caravan were furnished lunch by Mr Guy Cooper, a McGovern delegate to the Miami convention, at the Humboldt fire house. From there the group traveled to Falls City, where they spent the afternoon speaking .with residents about Senator McGovern's campaign.




FRIDAY, APRIL 28, 1972


Peditorial By JOHN THOMAS

President Neal S. Gomon called a meeting of al1 faculty and administration Monday evening ApriJ 24. According to Dr. Max Smith, Vice-president of Academic. affairs the personnel went over current status and recommendations for the budget of 197273. Also discussed were procedures for treatment of the budget positions were concerned. Dr. Smith reported the following to John Thomas, Editor of the Pedagogian: "In light of the fact that there is a difference in interpretation of the budget resources and possible uses for the coming year new options were evident which were not earlier apparent. Due to this fact, in order to make what we feel the best possible recommendation to the Board of Trustees, we are reopening the entire matter of staff appointments for the coming year. In order. to get the best possible input, we are seeking data from student evaluation of faculty, faculty self-evaluation, and administrative evaluation of faculty. (In the evaluation process administrators related to the academic program wil1 be evaluated also.) This information will be gathered within the near future. Once it is compiled, the dean's advisory council wil1 meet with the president and will make their decisions on recommendations, considering the above input. These recommendations will be made to the Board of Trustees, and will be subject to the board's approval. As it now stands, we will be recommending that there be 36 full-time faculty slots for the coming year rather than 33 as previously proposed." · · "Once the recommendations are arrived at b~ the dean's council and the president, they wil1 be announced to the students, faculty, and all · on campus. It is anticipated that this announcement wil1 come during the week of May 8, the earliest date possible which will allow for the input from the various groups described above."

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor: At a time when some housemothers are being put down for beiHg anti-social and even being quoted by some as "not needed", there's a housemother at Delzell Hall who has given her occupation a good name.

Dear Editor: Those students working· to 'clean up the apparent misunderstandings within the school system would like to thank the Administration and faculty of PSC for their assistance. Their willingness to give answers to pertinent questions has proved enlightening and i~ greatly appreciated. ·. A special thank you should be extended to Dr. (Max) Smith and Dr. (Neal S.) Gomon for their frankness and willingness to accept responsibility for what has occurred thus far.

In her first year as a housemother, Mrs Mary Kunkel has never been seen without a pleasant smile and friendly disposition. She has also brought this "belonging" atmosphere to the dorm. exnecially during Thanksgiving and Christmas as DAN SNYDER well as to the two Open House ceremonies. To the guys at Delzell the energetic housemom has many times acted as cook, chauffeur, seamstress, nurse, secretary and hostess.

Bombing Reaction


On March 23rd Senator Mike Gavel of Alaska introduced into the United States Senate a bill which would end the war in Indo China in 30 days, including an end to the air war. On the same day Congressman Drinan introduced the exact same le!!islation in the House. So far this bill has 17 co-sponsors in the Senate and 72 co-sponsors in the House. This legislation has come under considerable focus since Presiderit Mixon has increased the bombing of North Vietnam. According to the National Student Lobbv. in the past few weeks the U.S. has marshalled the most vast military armaaa since World War II. This action includes, according to NSL, a minimum of 16,350 men and 341 aircraft departing to Southeast Asia. another 9.850 men and 288 planes departing to an unknown destination in lndo China, and since April I, 21 attack ships have arrived in Vietnamese waters.

Any violation according to the proposal would be the authority of the respective Dorm Council. One of the major advantages that is stated in the proposal is that an Open House Proposal would be a significant economic advantage because the students would be encouraged to remain on campus over the weekend and in fact may draw more students to live in the dorm.

A Rap Session is scheduled or May 2 with President omon and the Administration.

An Open Dorm proposal has been proposed by the SGA after extensive polls were conducted to find out the students attitudes concerning the prop<isal. Last week the SGA plfssed the proposal unamously and it was referred to the Student Affairs Commission for further action. Until now the Student Affairs Commission has not taken any action on the proposal because of the revised SGA constitution taking most of their time. The survey which was taken of all Peru State College students indicated clearly that the vast majority of the residents of tile dorimtories are in favor of the Open House Proposal. This Proposal states that the dormitory would be open on Sunday from 4 o'clock to ten o'clock, Mon~ay from 6 o'clock to 10 o'clock, Tuesday the dorms would be closed, on Wednesdays from 6 o'clock to 10 o'clock, on Thursday the dorms would be closed again, on Friday from 6 o'clock to 12 o'clock and on Saturday from 6 o'clock to 12



Peru Ties In Match April 19, the Peru State golf team met Creighton University and Dana College in a triangular meet in Omaha. Creighton defeated the Bobcats, 141h-3lh, as many of the Peru gqlfers had trouble on the front nine at the Miracle Hills golf course. Dana and Peru tied in their match with 7% points apiece. Leading the pack in the meet was Guy Lammle with a 76. Right behind Guy was Dick Morrissey with a 77. Other scores for Peru were: Dave Lammie, 83, Roger Beard, 84, Kurt Kent, 87 and Butch Belt, 92. Peru again met Creighton on April 21, at Nebraska City in a dual meet. Creighton took this match by the score of 14-4. Points are usually scored in this manner for the meets; If a player beats his opponent on the front nine, that is if his score is lower than his opponent's, he gets a point. If they tie, the poi~t is halved. The same method 1s used for determining who gets the point on the back nine. Then a point is awarded to the player who wins the overall match. There is then a possible three points to be won in each match· between a player and his op. oonent. · Leading the Bobcats in the Creighton dual was again Guy Lammie with a 74. Kurt Kent fired a 78, as he and Guy were the only ones to break 80. Other scores for Peru were: Dick Morrissey-81, Roger Beard-83, Dave Lammle-84 and Butch Belt-90.

PSEA Drops Outstanding T.eacher Award By Bob Wernsman

The outstanding teacher award, annually sponsored by · the Peru Student Education Association, will not be presented for the 1971-72 academic year. When asked by a reporter, Pat Castle explaine<;I the dropping of the award. In the past, he said, the election was open only to members of P. S. E. A., which often resulted in only 75-80 students participating and often not resulting in an adequate campus-wide feeling. It had been decided by the members of P. S. E. A. that the election for outstanding teacher would be handled in a different manner than elections in previous years. Besides opening the election to all students at Peru State, the ballot included a list of all instructors on campus, for students to notate all teachers they had had, and 14 points of evaluation thought to be a good criteria by which to judge . teachers. By making these changes, the members felt that holding the elections could serve more of a purpose than simply a

popularity contest. They felt that if the teachers could learn why the top five had been selected, it would be of greater value. Because of this, they devised the 13 points of criteria. When the ballots were devised, it was felt that the winner should be decided on a percentage scale, thus the listing of all the teachers a student has had. The open election system resulted in a total of· 410 students participating in the election. After tabulating the election results, P. S. E. A~ dicovered a number of inequeties within the system they had set up. As outlined by Pat Castle, some of the rriajor inquities of the voting system were: ( 1) Straight vote totals would be unfair to those instructors who had fewer students. (2) Percentage vote would be unfair to the instruetors teaching required courses. (3} Percentage vote. is inaccurate unless a positive cpunt of the number of students. an instructor has had and the number of those voting is kept, <which was not achieved). (4) No decision had

Editors Named For 72-73 Editors for the 1972-73 year have been announced by Mr Everett Browning, student publications director. They are Bob Wernsman, Editor of the Pedagogian and Debbie Barton Editor of the Peruvian. Debbie Barton is a Freshman this year at Peru. Debbie lives in Omaha and is the daughter of Mr and Mrs James E. Barton. She is majoring in journalism and Minoring in Art. During High School at Omaha Bryan she was on the yearbook staff for two years and in her Senior year she was the Editor. She was a member of the National Honor Society, and a member of the Quill and Scroll.

R.E. Wernsman, son of Mr and Mrs R.E. Wernsman, Sr. of Omaha, is a Sophomore majoring in Journalism and Speech. At Peru State, he is a member of the Peru Players, president of the sophomore class, presidentelect of the Gavel and Rostrum Debate Society and served as assistant editor of the Pedagogian during the past semester.

Peditorial As the year rapidly draws to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to review the past year. Without a doubt, the most outstanding event of this year has been the interest the students have shown in the future of their college. Even though it only started during the last 2 or 3 months of this year, a lot has been done to make people take a good look at Peru State College and its student body. A more positive atmosphere is coming, as far as our school is concerned. · The Golden Anniversary of Peru State's Homecoming was a big success. This shows the great amount ot work and interest people have in this school. This must continue. I hope that the student body doesn't come back after the summer and with an attitude of "I don't care anymore." If we are really serious about the results of the rap sessions, we must continue our efforts on into next year, without a let-up. All students who are interested in Peru's future will be working on it this summer by recruiting new fall semester students. The students of this college are the best recruiters possible. If you really want to help, be at the meeting in the College Auditorium during Convo on May 10. Gary Hoeman will talk to students about recruiting students for nextfall. So if you are really interested in the future of PSC, be there. · In closing, I would like to say that I have enjoyed being Editor of the Pedagogian very much, and I would like to thank everyone who helped with the paper. I also take this opportunity to wish Bob Wernsman, next years editor, the very best of luck. JOHNM. THOMAS It was noted in the Omaha World Herald last weekend, that there would not be a University of Nebraska yearbook following the publication for this year. Often, a person is. subjected to derogatory statements about yearbooks. "It's too oldfashioned." "It's too expensive." "It's too much work." Sales for the U. of N. yearbook this year have reached 1, 700 less than a tenth of the entire student population at the University. The article in the Omaha paper quoted this year's editor as saying "mosf students don't have the.old spirit, that feeling yearbooks used to appeal to." It is rather refreshing then, to realize that although the Peruvian has no budget accorded by the administration through the Board of Trustees we are able, through the work of the students, to ha\Tf.lln annual again this year, entirely student supported. I believe it is a commendation to those students willing to spend so much of their time to sell

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor Among many considerate peo~le on our campus, Dr. Winmger stands out in his recognition of office people (perhaps because business education is his field). For several years he has fiever failed to put an apple on each desk on the first day of school; Halloween, Christmas Valentine's Day, Easter bring appropriate candies, and now a May basket for everyone. And for National Secretaries Week just past, as Snoopy did, he gave the secretaries a pat on the head. The office personnel wish to salute Dr. Wininger! THE SECRETARIES


enough yearbooks to assure Peru of the 1972 edition of the yearbook. While many potions are being taken on the campus, although possibly adverse to the feelings of the studen.ts, it is· reassuring to note that the students are capable of completing positive undertakings, the Peruvian r Jing an ideal example. Perhaps the students of P. S. C. have what it takes, that spirit, that feeling, and thus may realize that they have the ability and the power to make Peru exactly what they feel it should be. R.E.
