Hollle' in Gyinnasiulll

Peru State again has a live Bobcat! The tradition of a live mascot for the Peru State athletic teams was revived January 22, 1971, when Bob II arrived on the Campus of a Thousand Oaks. Purchased by the Blue Devils, men's pep club, from a Florida wild animal farm, Bob II has his temporary home in a cage in the "pit" area of the gymnasium. Bob I came to make his home on the Peru campus in October, 1927, the gift of the late George Hansen '12, who was then superintendent of schools a~ Safford, Ariz. Mr. Hansen's widow, the former Iva Glasgow, '08, lives at 7750 North 16th, Phoenix. Bob l lived in a cage south of the Auditorium until his death May 20, 1938. He was mounted and is now displayed in a troph..y case in the Student Center. Until 1921, Peru State had no mascot for her athletic teams, but that year, Pedagogian sports editor. Paul "Baldy" Wilcox, 2 yr. '22, AB '27, now a resident of Capistrano Beach, Calif., named the teams. According to Ernest Longfellow's "Normal on the Hill," Wilcox '"thought bf 'bears' but that reminded him to<? much of the future teacher's hugs. ~e became pensive ~d dreamy; finally one night he r~1mped out of bed with his great inspiration: 'Fight ike a Bo?cat.' He sprung it on the boys and they voted for it. Thus the Bobcat becanie the mascot " Plans are being made to construct an outs.ide cage for Bob II.

Industria] Arts Club Aids Santa Last December Santa Claus received an assist from members of the Industrial Arts Club of Peru State. Thanks to their efforts and the generosity of Nemaha county organizations and business firms, 185 toys were mass-produced for distribution by the welfare department of Nemaha County, the Beatrice State Home and the Action Editor of the Omaha World-Herald. The wooden toys-model racers, pound-a-peg, roll toys, bus, and stilts-were designed, with jigs engineered, and parts constructed and then mass prodaced on an assembly line by members of the 20-ye..-old organization. Saata~S hag of tO)(:S produced by the club incladed more than 2,500 different parts and required approximately 500 man hours of 1 abor. Besides the toys,, the cl.b members constructed four balance be:anits for the Beatrice State Home at the request of school officials* The scraps of wood remaining from the were made into sets of building blocks. of the club studying. graphic arts designed anti prinl:ed labels for each toy which listed donors who coa.tributed money and materials: the Penli. y . _ of Foreign Wars, Post 7299, Pern

FIN t SHED PRODUCTS di sp 1 ayed and waiting for di st ri but ion by "Santaâ&#x20AC;˘ s helpers" are pounda:-peg, pull-toy, racer, bus and stilts. AT WORK on the I A toy project are Gary Linden, Tekamah; David Gibson, Beatrice; and Roger Rosenthal, Cook.

Volunteer Fire Department, Peru Kiwanis Club, Peru Tuesday Literary Cl uh, Peru Wesleyan Service Guild, Peru State College Student Wives Club, Peru Building and Supply company, and the Mead Lumber company of Auburn. Some of the toys meet special needs of handicapped children. After discussing special problems with officials of the Beatrice home, club members designed longer handles on roll toys so that children up to 16 years of age can use them without having to stoop. The blocks made from the scraps were designed to be educational as well as amusing and all of the toys were made especially strong so they will have a long life. Safety was engineered into the toys. The stilts, for instance, do not have a strap over the foot rest so that youngsters will fall free if they lose their balance. The balance beams were designed especially for children at the Beatrice Home and will be used to teach equilibrium to handicapped children while providing amusement.

A. V. Larson Dies Suddenly At his Peru Home Fe~ruary 17 A. V. Larson, professor emeritus of industrial arts, died February 17, at his home in Peru. He joined the faculty in 19 26 and retired at the close of the 1958 summer session, serving as head of the division of practical arts since 1945. Since his retirement, he had been active in the Peru Achievement Foundation, Inc., serving as treasurer from March 29, 1962, until his death.

Larson, M.D., director of hospital laboratories, University of Wisconsin, Madison; Helen Margaret (Mrs. Joseph) Seiger, Sea Cliff, New York; and Leonore (Mrs. Rooert W.) Graf, Fairfield, Conn. All three of the Larson children received their elementary and secondary schooling at the T. J. Majors Campus school and hold bachelors degrees from Peru State College. It was not until after his retirement that the industrial arts department would have a new building. During his tenure he had made several plans for new facilities to be a part of several proposed building... only to see the necessary appropriation not forthcoming. The new building for which he had done considerable planning was occupied in September, 1960, and in April 1961, was officially ded-icated and named for A. V. Larson.

Basketball Record is 17-7

The Peru State Bobcat basketball team compil~d an impressive 17·7 record in the 1970-71 season, winning two tournaments and boasting an NAIA national ranking of 18th for three weeks in a row. But an injury to a key player and a mid-season slump Ptlt the team out of contention for the Nebraska College Confetence title. Head Coach Jack Mclntire's team opened the season with a 76-66 win over Tarkio College, then won six more games, including the South Dakota Tech tournament at Rapid City and the William PeAD College tournament at Oskaloosa, Iowa. The Bobcats' first loss of the season was to UN-Omaha. Larry Green, Brock, leading scorer with an av:erage of 22 points a game, injured a foot in the fkst half against Omaha and was unable to play Ille second ~half. UN-Omaha won the game on its hme court by a score of 9 3-8 7. The Bobcats followed with a win over Northwest Missouri State without Green, then went into the to Nebraska Conference stretch of the schedule. Wit a playing at less than full speed and the Bohea!s in a mid-season slump, Kearney and Wayne eaclt .toak advantage of the situation to win games and Clmdron won two games over the Bobcats on Ch-.dr~s home court before Peru regained its poise and "defe.ated both Kearney and Wayne in return games.. G1:een will graduate along with starting guards Mib John80n,. Omaha, and Clyde Wilkins, Lake Charles~


Coach Mcintire will replace the losses with promising sophomores, juniors, and trans£ er students. Lack of experience appears to be the greatest problem in 19.71-72 for the potentially explosive Bobcat haskethall. team which will operate with a new center and two guards who had only limited play· time in 1970-71. C Mcintire, who has had eleven winning seasons since he became head basketball coach 15 seasons ago, this year stretched his record to 231 wins and 146 losses while coaching Peru State·tea:ms.

Golfers Win NCC; Track Records Fall ..

This was the year for golf and track at Peru State. The golf team, considered by Coach Ervin Pitts to be the best ever at Peru, won the NCC championship, placed second behind Hastings College in the District 11 NAIA tournament and won seven of nine meets. Only losses were to UN-Omaha and Northwest Missouri State, which Peru even,ed by winning return meets with both schools.

Coed Basketball Gains Interest


Women's basketball has gained wide interest at Peru State the past two years with the team playing a nine-game schedule in 1971. But interest is gaining in other colleges to the extent that the Peru team which a year ago lost only one game of a 10-game schedule ran into stiffer competition this season, winning three and losing SIX.

Leading scorers for Peru were Karen Sell, Tabor, Iowa, with an average of 10 points a game, and Pat Prose, Glenwood, Iowa, with 8.1 points a game. Sponsor of the team is Miss Bonnie Rutz, assistant professor of women's physical education. The team plays under rules of the American Association for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, which are similar to rules in men's basketball.

Well Child Clinic • Operation Again ID Beginning November 12, a free Well Child Clinic is again in ope1;_ation· on the campus of Peru State College. The clinic for pre-school and elementary age c:hildren will be open to Southeast Nebraska residents, ·according to Brad Field, Humboldt, director of the Southeast Nebraska Community Action Council. A well-child clinic operated at Peru State from April, -1948, until the death of the resident pediatrician, Dr. Dorothy Smith, maternal child care director for the State Board of Health, in the fall of 1969. The new clinic, patterned after the original which was started under ·a Kellogg Foundation largely through the efforts of the late Ruth Vernon (Mrs. L.B.} Mathews, Peru health educator, will be sponsored by the Southeast Nebraska Community Action Council. Dr. Van Leeuwen, chief of pediatrics, University of N ehraska Medical School, Omaha, will he pediatrician. Peru State College will provide the facilities of the Student Health Center and the services of Mrs. Virginia Miller, college nurse. Under the positive health program, parents bring their children for regularly scheduled visits and through the pediatrician's examination any defects found may more easily he corrected. At no time does the cHnic y,rescribe treatment--it refers the parent to the fami y doctor or a specialist. •The whole concept behind the Well Child Clinic· is to provide preventative medical care and to keep children well and happy," Mrs. Miller said. Esther Holmes (Mrs. Lester) Russell, Peru, will serve as clinic aid, a position she held at th~ time the clinic was discontinued. Appointments should be made by contacting her. Under the new set-up, the Clinic will operate once a month and will he open during ahernoon and early evening.

Farewell From Editor After writing and editing the Peru Stater since the issue of October, 1954, your scribe will lay down his pen with this issue. Come January 1, 1971, he will assume the position of Director of Place?Ient at Northwest Missouri State College, Maryville. As these words are being written, he is trying to adjust to thinking in terms of green and white instead of pale blue and white. Since coming to Peru in June, 1954, your scribe has had the opportunity to vmeet some of the finest people he will ever expect to meet. Associations through the Alumni Association and the Peru Achievement Foundation have been heart-warming. Through these years he has had numerous experiences which illustrate the fact that the influence of Peru State is felt far beyond the borders of Nebraska. This past summer at the San Francisco convention of Kiwanis International,. your scribe met a 1908 grad he first met at the time of the 1958 reunion of that class--J. Harold Williams of Los Angeles. Later that same week he met a Boone Iowa, nephew of Harriet Carter Blythe, '06, Tecum~ seh, and a door keeper from on'e of the host clubs at one of the sessions said his wife had attended Peru. The real coincidence came later on a cable car ride when another Kiwanian noted "Nebraska" on the lapel tag. He remarked his "great grandfather was first superintendent of public instruction in Nebraska." Your scribe answered, "Yes, his name was J.M. McKenzie, and he was the first president of the first college in Nebraska-- now Peru State College." Further conversation identified the great grandson of J. M. and Charlotte Burch McKenzie as Malcolm R. Robertson, academic vice-president of Azusa Pacific College at Azusa, Calif. He has promised to· pay Peru State a visit. Best wishes to Peruvians--everywhere. --Don Carlile

1971 Grads Number 274 -~


Two hundred and forty-seven candidates for degrees were honored at May and August commencements at Peru State College. The May 29 event had as speaker, J. Alan Cramer, Wayne, president of the Board of Trustees of the Nebraska S. ~ Colleges. Special recognition was given members of the 1911 and 1921 reunion classes. Summer graduates were charged with a two-fold obligation by Dr. Neal S. Gomon, president of Peru State College. They were charged to provide cfor yourselves and your families a full way of life unattainable without the advantages you now enjoy as a college graduate" and "to contribute positively to the welfare of others ''in the community in which you live, to the state which has so significantly shared in the attainment of your goals and to the nation which has as one of its cornerstones a free and educated citizenry." In his address .Dr. Gomon told of the critical evaluation which is being leveled at higher education. With the increasing pressures e>n all levels of government for support, colleges and universities are under particular scrqnity because of the nebulous measures availahle for assessment of their product. . "It is not too difficult to evaluate tons of bombs, or yards of .concrete, or yield per acre, ¡but how does one measure the effectiveness of human productivity?" he asked. The graduates' work has been evaluated and fo~nd satisfactory. within the framework of values developed, but graduation does not necessarily guarantee acceptable performance, Dr. Gomon warned. "The institution can only say it has provided the product with a body of knowledge and experiences with which they should be able to make a positive contribution to the society in which we all live." He called for support of the continued efforts of Peru State to provide educational programs to meet the needs of students yet to come. August degree candidates: Bachelor of Arts in Education-Merlyn W. Arends, Talmage; Harlan J.

President Gomon Expressed Hope for Expansion of Vo-Tech Program


Dr. Neal S. Gomon, president of Peru State College,, is hopeful vocational-technical offerings at Peru State will be expanded in the future. ,LB759 passed by the 1971 legislature created eight Vocational-Technical districts in Nebraska, hut .calls for exclusion of four-year colleges in the program. Despite this fact, an amendment to the present law could make such offerings possible at Peru State. An alternative would be a lease arrangement for Peru State facilities for use in vocationaltechnical programs administered by the vocational:technical district. This i:aformation was revealed by State Senator Wayne Ziebarth, author of the original bill who was on the Pen1 State campus in October during hearing he(p,btll.e legislative budget committee. ~i~ for add·itional vocational-technical pro~· at. Peru by Southeast Nebraska governmental subdi~ions,. organizations and individuals has beea ovenvhelming, Dr. Gomon said. He feels peo,ple in the area would support a change in the original hill by amendment or for a lease arrangement. Further discussions are scheduled with officials in working out a plan to make expanded vocationaltechnical programs possible at Peru State, Dr. Gom~n $aid. · The two present vocational-technical programs {Secret~fial-Clerical and Accounting Technology) are Fese.ndy offered at Peru State. Funded by the 1971 legislature, the programs will be included in the budget request for consideration by the 1972 I egislature.

Grid Season Ends With Hopes for '72 The 1971 Bobcat grid team showed great improvement in defense, regardless of a 1-9 record. Only two losses were by more than two touchdowns. The closing game of the season, the 'Cats single victory over Culver-Stockton, broke a fifteen game losing streak and gave Peru the first homecoming victory since 1965. Regardless of the victory, Head Coach Joe Pelisek felt the team's best effort came the preceding week against NCC champs, Wayne State. The final score left the Bobcats short, 7-6. A field-go al attempt by the 'Cats in the final two minutes of the game was spoiled by a bad snap from center. Throughout ·the season the Bobcat scoring threat came ho th in the air and on the rush. Sophomore quarterback, Terry Criger, Nebraska City, threw eleven touchdown passes; four into the hands of junior end, John Winkle, Whittemore, Iowa. The ground threat was led by the speedy freshman halfback, Avery Wallace who accumulated five TD's to lead the scoring. These three young players along with sophomore fullback, Barry Reed, Henry, Ill., who shared the second scoring position of 24 with Winkle, will be ret'urning next year to lead the Bobcat offense. Outstanding for the defense was 155 lb. Gordon Thompson, sophomore from Lake Charles, La. "Gordy" was responsible for stopping many strong runners but n:i.ainly for picking off four passes and returnin& them 378 yards, scoring two TD's. The tCats lose only four seniors from the 197 I line up, but returning upperclassmen, anticipate freshman recruits and transfers should help to fill these pos.itions .. 1971 Scores: (PSC ,score first)

Fou)n,dation Continues to Serve PSC The year 1971 is fast approaching its close. The trustees of the Peru Achievement Foundation are grateful to Peruvians EVERYWHERE for their co~tributions which have provided Peru State College with f~nd.s nof provided for through legislative appropnation. One of the greatest needs met by the Foundation is matching funds for the National Defense Student Loan program. Since its beginning in 1958, the gifts of alumni and friends of Peru State for matching funds - totaling $34,923. 21 -- plus re-payment mo:aey available for re-loaning, has made it possible for Peru State students to borrow $50 3,550 under the terms of tht> federal NDSL program. Every dime of matching funds have come from the Peru Achievement Foundation. Add to this, the scholarships provided by the Foundation: a report of the fall, 1971, scholarship total is included in the story of the October meeting of tile Foundation. CO$e; Spring, a project began by gifts of the class of 1919, will become reality. That class took: upon itself replacing the bulletin board, a gift of the 1917 class attheir graduation. The new threesided,, lighted structure will be erected on the site of the present bulletin board in front of the administration build~. (Note to 1917 class members: the plaqtre from yo.ur bulletin hoard will be incorporated in the new bulletin board.} A Lonor roll of giving for 1971 will be prepared and ma.iled to Peruvians after the first of the year. We are grateful for gifts which have made the Foundation of service to Peru State. We hope we can count on yonr support in 197 2. The need continues.

Cross Country Team Success Continues into 1971 Season The cross country team was successful in the 1971 season. They won four of their five duels; defeating Tarkio, Northwest Missouri State, Doane and Kearney State. Their only loss was in an earlier meet with NWMSC.
