Peru represented at Highway Commissio-n Meeting By RICH MAYO

On Tuesday, September 11, the Nebraska Department of Road&. held an information meeting, with the public invited to attend, at the Senior High Schhol in Syracuse, Nebraska. The meeting was intended to give the public a chance to air their complaints or ask questions of a ten member Highway Commission in attendance. A number of concerned citizens from Peru and the surrounding area attended the meeting. The meeting started off with a member of the commission reading off a systematic list of

projects undertaken and yet to be undertaken in the Nebraska district involved. The commission announced that they have a definite five year plan for improvement and developement of projects including over 467 miles of actual road in the Nebraska district one. They also announced that over six million dollars will be spent on these projects in the next six years. Another member of the commission explained the many steps needed to carry out a single project. He stressed that sometimes it takes six to eight years to carry out a single project from design to com-

pletion. It was announced that the ,Department of Roads had adopted an official Action Plan, and that Nebraska was the first state to have done so. The plan will deal with guidelines for work on old, and construction of new, projects by the Department of Roads. The plan will allow provisions for public participation also. It will be in the form of a Citizens Advisory group which will have some say so in appropriate matters. The Chairman of the commission, Mr Breslow pointed out that the Citizens Advisory group spoken of had in actuality helped formulate the plan itself.

The meeting was then opened for statements and questions from the public. Included among the many citizens voicing their opinions was a senior from Peru State coUege, Dean Young. Dean stated that he was representing the student body and that his main concern was with Highway 67 leading into Peru. He told the Commission that when he was a freshman he was told the 'Buffalo Trail', ·as it is called, would be fixed that year. He was also told similar things when he was a sophomore and a junior. As it turns out, the highway, much in need of improvement and repair, is not scheduled for

work until, at the earliest, 1975. The Chairman of the commission told Dean, who is President of the S. G. A. that they, (the commission), would do everything possible to speed up the plans, and that he himself should strongly consider getting up a petition on campus and sending it to the Department of Roads. Also speaking from the Peru area were the Mavor. Mr Rex Allgood, Dr. Gilbert E. Wilson of the Peru College Music Department, and Mary Alice Vernon, who stated that she represented the private citizens of the Peru area.

Thies£eld, D'Addesa named new editors By MIKE LANCE

Bobbi Thiesfeld, journalism major and daughter of Mr and Mrs Robert Thiesfeld of Nebraska City, Nebraska has received the responsibility of editor of the Peru State College yearbook, the Peruvian. Miss Thiesfeld stated there were quite a few difficulties facing her with just one week of school completed. Topping the list were lack of a sponsor and a decreasing budget from which financial support for the annual originates. A 1971 graduate of Nebraska City High School, she served on the school yearbook staff and became known as a tireless worker. The 1972-73 school year found Bobbi Thiesfeld gaining valuable knowledge as the assistant editor of the yearbook and editor of the Pedagogian. Supported by a strong and eager staff (which is to be an-

nounced later), Bobbi viewed only a few minor changes she would attempt to make to secure the yearbook as a better and more productive Peruvian publication. As we talked, Miss Thiesfeld's excitement for what she hoped the coming events could present for the annual was radically optimistic. By her comments, a new photography position would be established to better organize the mountains of pictures acquired each year. Individuality would be expressed as an important factor during the yearbook's composition. Being the oldest .of six children, the five foot nine inch junior bachelorette is a natural coordinator and organizer_ Outside interests find Bobbi dabbling in free lance and many of the other various types of writing. Participating or spectating any competitive sport

seems to hold her attention during free time. And summertime means working time, this summer she was employed by American Beef Packers of Nebraska City. After her graduation, Bobbi is seeking a teaching profession and later, perhaps a steady column in a magazine. But for now, Miss Thiesfeld is concerned with producing the best yearbook Peru has ever published and doing her best as editor. Frank D' Addesa, a junior from Elizabeth, New Jersey, has accepted the position of editor for the Peru State College newspaper, the Pedagogian. The




major spent time on his high school paper as page editor and last year served as news editor first semester and later as an assistant editor of the Pedagogian during the second

semester. the new administration.

EDITORIAL Welcome back to Nebraska's first college. As editor of this semester's Pedagogian I hope to keep you informed on what's happening on campus and in Peru. I will also devote some space to news events taking place in the country and the world, since it is your responsibility to shape some sort of opinion on what's going on in this world. I want to urge you to contribute to your college newspaper. The main outlet which students can employ to express themselves in the "Letters to the Editor" portion of the Ped. I hope to print all letters, though some may have to be edited or printed partially. The pages of the Ped will be subjected to many changes this semester. My goal is to inform as well as entertain. I am looking forward to hearing your reactions commenting on what is printed.

Riverboat . excurs10n By PHYLLIS BUTRICK

As a part of Freshman Orientation the college sponsored a riverboat excursion on the "Belle of Brownville." Approximately 193 persons attended including among the students five faculty members. Rides were provided for persons who needed them to Brownville where the affair began. The excursion was to last between 8:00 p.m. and midnight. The boat left the dock with the music of a country-western band, furnished by the SGA, playing for the obvious enjoyment of everyone. The riverboat journeyed down the Missouri River to see the wonder of the Brownville Power Plant at night.

Dr. and Mrs. ·Pearson: On behalf of the students of Peru State College, the Student Government Association would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family and are happy to have you as a part of our college and community.

recorded in the annals of histqry as the greatest day in the history of "mankind". For on that day, at 7:00 p.m., Bobby Riggs will defeat Billy Jean King.·· At 55, Riggs is one of the finest tennis players in the world. He has the style of Laver, the coordination of Ashe, and the speed of Smith. Nevertheless, Riggs plays tennis like no one else can. His prowess on the court is legendary. Billy Jean King on the other hand is 30, female and of course she is good. There are few women who could match the power behind her smash shot. Ms King may very well be the greatest living female tennis player in the world. But, truthfully, she is no match for Bobby Riggs. Howard Cosen favors Billy Jean. For what reason I do not know. I predict Bobby Riggs in two straight sets. Although Ms King is younger, Riggs will drain her stamina with his incredible shots, for Riggs seems to be able to return any shot like a sniper. Billy Jean King declared that she would "smash him into the court." That will not come to pass. Bobby Riggs promises that by defeating and humiliating Billy Jean he will "put women • back in the kitchen and bedroom where they belong." I fear that that also will fail to come to pass.

Bobcats drop opener to Graceland during closing minutes of game By RICK DeKLOTZ Peru State's football team opened the 1973 season by dropping an eight to seven contest Saturday night at the Oak Bowl to the Yellowjackets of Graceland College. The Yellowjackets drove deep into 'Cat territory, gathering two first downs early in the first quarter, with halfback Dave Hamilton doing most of the work. One of Hamilton's runs, a 33 yard scamper to the Peru six yard line was nullified by a clipping penalty. Three plays lated, Bobcat Robert Herron picked up a Graceland fumble on his own 40 and ran untouched 60 yards for a score. Dave Bower's P.A. T. was successful and·Peru had a seven point lead. Peru State's defensive team

appeared much stronger than the 1972 squad which gave up an average of 28.3 points per game. Although Graceland rolled up mote total offense, 271 yards to 118 for Peru, the 'Cat defense was extremely effective within their own 30 yard line. Graceland drove within Peru's 30 six times during · the game only to be thwarted each time as Peru came up with big defensive plays. Two Yellowjacket drives were stopped· as a result of interceptions by Otis Samuel and Dave McDaniel. An attempted 24 yard field goal early in the second quarter never really got started as a bad snap led to an eight yard loss instl~ad of a possible three points. Heavy pass rushes stopped three other threats including one at the very. end of the first half, when

Graceland was inside the Bobcat 10 yard line. Graceland was held scoreless for more than 56 minutes until substitute quarterback Chl:is Gibson connected with Allen Roche on a 64 yard screen pass for a touchdown with only 3: 16 to play. The Yellowjacket coaches then had to decide whether to kick the extra point for a tie, or to go for .a two point conversion that would give them the lead. They decided to go for two points and got them as halfback Larry Child tossed a pass to Dave Rittman on an option play that found Rittman wide open in the end zone. Rittman was open as a result of the 'Cat defensive backs coming up to converge on Child. Peru's final chance for victory cam,e minutes later when

Graceland fullback Mark Sanger fumbled on his own 27 yard line. Freshman quarterback Mark Fletcher, who had taken over for the injured Terry Criger midway in the third period, completed a four yard pass to Ario Wusk at the 25. Fletcher then threw two incomplete passes setting up a 42 yard· field goal attempt by Bower which fell short. Bobcat coaches attribute the missed attempt to a bad snap from center. Starting quarterback Criger suffered strained ligaments in his left knee. Criger missed most of last season as h.e sustained a wrist injury in the fifth game against Concordia. It is not known at this writing how long Criger will be out of action.

Key injuries to hurt Cat chances By JEFF WALTHER No other activity, short of war, demands so much stamina, skill, speed, and just plain guts, as does football. Head Coach Jack Mcintire, backfield coach Tom Fitzgerald, and line coach Marty Dwine, have a squad of 66 men, (25 returning lettermen), "bitin' -at the-bit", to meet that challenge for Peru. The only way to get to play varsity ball in Bobcat country is to be a standout. But there are a few who spark the PSC attack. The multi-talented senior ·from Nebraska City, Terry Criger, fills the bill. In the defensive · safety, quarterback, and offensive halfback slots, Terry is equally adept. "Talent, desire, anda will to win," is the winning combination for Terry, says Coach Mcintire. Hefty Steve Krajicek, a 6-2, 245 lb senior tackle and "little" brother, 6-0, 195 lb. junior guard, Gus, hailing from Papillion, are next in line for recognition. This fraternal

duo, according to Coach Mac, have the "desire to hit", which puts them in the much coveted no. 1 spots on the line. Serving along with the pair from Papio, speedy Rich Leech, a senior tackle, does just what the name implies. The 6-6, 220 lb. gift from Beatrice, is the fastest tackle on the squad. No understatement here! Sparking the offensive attack is senior fullback Barry Reed. At 6-4, 230 lb., Barry was the leading ground-gainer last season. Coach Fitzgerald has high hopes for this young man. A real blow to the Bobcat Football Machine has been the injuries of a few key men. The loss of varsity quarterback Tom Froehlich, a three year letterman and long-time offensive standout, will be sorely felt. Tom tore some ligaments in an already ailing knee and had to undergo surgery. Jim Rezac, outstanding sophomore tackle and a heavyweight wrestler,

suffered a knee injury in a scrimmage game at Wesleyan. It is hoped Jim will return early in the season. Despite these setbacks, all three coaches commented that the teams are coming "along as expected." The team has "great desire and is in good sp:rits," comments Coach Mcintire. Frosh gridders total 38 this season, adding a lot of new talent to be unleashed in future games. The rookies will see "a lot of

varsity duty," according to the head coach. Strategist Mcintire says he gets "the ground game established first," and then goes to the air if it looks good. He went on to predict a better record than the 3-7-0 series of last year. All-in-all, it looks like a great season ahead with Peru having a good shot at the no. 1 berth in the NCAC conference.

10 the Peru State Bobcat

opened their football season b hosting the Yellow Jackets Graceland College. The Yello Jackets won the game in the 1 three minutes by completing . two point conversion to pull an 7 victory. After such a dishearteni loss, Head Coach Jack Mclntir had nothing but words of prais and encouragement for hi players. He told tern to kee their heads high and to get read for their game against Tarki Saturday night, when Peru Stat hopes to start its initial winnin streak.

Peru along with three ~en

other state colleges are putting· forth a joint effort in making up a resolution · to present to the college board that would allow beer in the dormitories. In proposing this resolution Nately is using the argument that college studnets of legal age who are maturing adults are already subjected to accepting the responsibilities of college life. Therefore they should be able to accept the responsibility that comes along with being permitted to drink in the privacy of ones' own room. The state seems to think that a 19 year old male or female is old enough to account for his actions. Therefore 'they entend ·the privilege of drinking legally at this age. Then what is the difference between drinking at a bar or drinking in ones own room? Nately will soon sponsor a petition which is currently being circulated around the campus. The purpose of this petition is to . make the students aware of the condition of.Highway 67 west of Peru and through this petition we may get the highway resurfaced.

SPC to make comeback, arrett named sponsor By JEFF WALTNER


KPSC, ''the voice of Peru," is on it's way. An enthusiastic radio club began to take form at last week's convocation and, as this reporter sees it, it looks like a very exciting year! Plans are · underway to renovate the presei1tly cam·pu·s:Hmited Station to an AM and-or FM station with the power to reach Auburn or even Nebraska City. The money for the project will be obtained through a host of Federal and State grants now being applied for. Shows on a proposed 16-hour broadcasting day would include local and regional news, sports, weather, and music; Top 40, rhythm and blues, soul, jazz, rock; youname-it, it'll be there. Mr John Barrett, the club's $ponsor, is doing a lot of leg work to get the station "under a full bead of steam." "We want

people, all kinds of people to get involved in the station," Mr Barrett said. There are all kinds of interesting jobs open at the station; disc-jocks, news reporters, news staff, announcers, technicians, and writers of all kinds, just to name

a few. The "life-blood" of tL station is YOU, the Peru Staters. This club is really where its at; and if you wanna be there, be at FA 104, Monday, Sept. 24, at 4: 30 for an important R.C. meeting. KPSC- the place to be!

Stem per resigns for career with insurance company By JAMES C. CASH

After 23 years of teaching service at Peru State College, Mr Jerome Stemper turned ·in his resignation. There are according to Stemper several reasons which precipitated him to resign. None of which direct any hostile feelings or animosity toward the college or its personnel. It was a clean break which required a lot of thought as well as consideration. He has left the profession which had given him some of the happiest moments in his life. For the past two vears, Mr Stemper has been preparing to enter the insurance business. This summer he completed his testing successfully and went on. the payroll of the Lincoln Nationai Life Insurance Agency the 1st of August. Last spring Mr Stemper was informed that he was going to be moved back into the education department where he had obtained his masters degree. What complicated this move was the fact that for the past twenty years he had been associated primarily with the P .E. department, the department, he

enjoyed immensely. So moving out of P.E. back into basic education was a problem to be contended with. On top of this he was being assigned a night class which would conflict with. his duties as director of intramurals. Another disconcerting as well as disappointing matter fo Stemper was the procedure used ' in reducing the college's faculty staff. Regardless of everything that has happened to date, Mr Stemper feels that the future of Peru State is very bright and hopeful. There were some significant changes made over the summer that should strengthen and enhance the educational processes at Peru. Stemper also believes that with the new leadership of Dr. Pearson, along with the. cooperation of the administrative staff, college personnel and students, Peru State will once again retain its status and reputation as the oldest and one· of the finest e.ducational institutions in Nebraska.

By MIKE LANCE Mrs H. Johnson has been at it for seven years, Mrs W. S. Hallock has just begun. But that doesn't keep the respective residents of Clayburn-Mathews and Davidson-Palmer from trading opinions and adjectives about their "moms." Mrs Johnson has been the housemother of ClayburnMathews since its creation and has no regrets. "A soothing atmosphere" accooots for the shining reputation that Clayburn,Mathews owns. A recent poll of opinions conducted with a few of her 81 male residents speaks for itself. William Grush- "very nice." . Dick Kimball - "she's a good nurse." Barry Miller - "real nice, 0.K. with me."

Steve Mc Vay - "mom is terrific." Otherreoortsfromsomeofthe dwellers state simply that "she's a pretty good mom" and that there are "no problems." And as .one freshman who's never had a housemother before said, "I hope all of 'em are like her, it'll be great!" Davidson-Palmer's resident houseparent is aided somewhat by her male spouse. Mr and Mrs Stan Hallock corral and assist 56 very alive and very feminine girls. Mrs Hallock revealed that a condition of "mutual cooperation and respect" exists atthe dorm. And although this is her first year as a housemother at Peru, she acquired some experience while serving as a R. A. assistant director. Some of

the comments received on "Mr Hallock, your opinion of," were: Pat Schultz - "nice to hav someone young and willing to help improve dorm." Evelyn Palone - "pretty nice, O.K." Three year resident Connie Gregg - "she sounds strict. enough so things won't get wild,' but lenient enough to have some fun." Flurries of "nice and "really neat" and "she likes the teenybop burgers at A & W" were common among many others .. The only varying words spoken of the housemothers· were "she's always smiling" · (Mrs Johnson) and "she's too skinny" (Mrs Hallock). Both ladies were held very high in the eyes of the individuals polled and were much appreciated for their work at Peru State College.

:Student expresses views on apathy By TERRI FUNKHOUSER I don't give a damn. This is a. common slang expression used by all of us at varying times. It is usually used when things aren't going right or we've given up trying. It becomes a bit scary on a national scale. People are .becoming tired of other people liberating themselves. They have become tired of what they read in the newspaper and listen to on the six o'clock news concerning recent Watergate findings. People will yawn and switch to another channel. People are becoming bored with the idea· of conserving our natural resources. Nobody, I shouldn't say that, alot of people consider the shortage in gas a bother an inconvenience. People 'all over the country in some way or another are being affected by the American bureaucracy. Whether it be by the rise in meat prices or the fact that your vacation may be limited this year because of ,the gas shortage. But people just don't care. One word will describe this syndrome. APATHY. APATHY . . . An alarming syndrome based on a lack of interest in ones fellow man. BIASED... A prejudgement or attitude dealing with the way one feels toward another. Put these two words together in

conjunction with the way p~ple live in an American bureaucracy full of red tape and you come up with some amazing facts about different human lifestyles. You also come up with a society de\roted to searching for , some tangent element in their lives to make them happy. Why can'tpeople go on being people? What is this force that has crept up on us while our backs were turned? How can we explain this cruel and brutal word call~d_ APATHY that has swept the American people off their feet and blew them away ... Just where did it come from and why is it so determined to deceive people into thinking they really know where their priorities lie in life. The older generation uses the word apathy to describe the platonic attitudes of the young . The younger generation uses this expression to define the outmoded ways of thinking of the . older generation. It is a highly misunderstood term that acco\lllts for peoples' attitudes and the way they live in this society. APATHY can hardly be thought of as just a term. It is a force so widespread and so sneaky in the way it affects people that it can hardly go unrecognized by the minority of people who are really into the

process of living. When we the American people become lax in our concern for governing institutions, when we no longer care about relating to each other on an individual basis, when the lust for power and success have become so dominating in our daily lives that we forget who we really are and what we are really here for then we ·can be labeled as apathetic Americans. Now that we have established the fact that apathy has become something similar to a household word. That it is a dominating and overpowering controlling device in the way we live and the way we govern our lives. That it has and will continue to corrupt basic attitudes by twisting them to the point ·where they bobble up communication channels between governmental officials and the public. WE can look at the problem clearly, think out the alternatives to living such a life where things of grave importance are kept from the public, when scandals higher up are covered up to be investigated at a later date when people can no longer know who to trust because their telephone lines may be tapped and decide whether or not apathy has touched our lives and if so how we can eliminate it before it · takes over.

pants are gone but "Baggie Shorts" with cuffs and pockets are great for the fall and winter. The tweeds and corduroy are the warm and popular materials. Print blouses are the rage now with wild prints. And to keep you warm on cold winter nights "Fanny Sweaters." These sweaters go over the blouses and also the hips. Not only are they fashionable but they are warm. What to wear on the ears, wrists. waist, and feet? Well,

anything from efoph_ant. hair bracelets, belts of beads, wooden ear disks and bracelets. to two to three inch heels. The selection is wide and the choice. is ypws. Fashions ori the -co~st. and fashions in the mtd\\'e~f ~re two · different thfngs. When a certain fashion is popuJ:ar on the. East Coast it generally -takes six months to two years to reach the midwest. OnlY- fashion m.inded women with outstanding .taste will keep up with todays· s~yles.

Bo9cats capture Applejack Bowl defeat Tarkio, 19~



: : 'By~nickDeKLOTZ

Pei-U: ··State used a strong

def~il~ · P!u~ a potent ground attack to capture the fifth annual Api}Wack~l3ow1 game against Tai:)go COIJege: :i~-0 Saturday night :Sept: ·15 in Nebraska City. The 'Cat defense limited Tai:kio to 80. yards through the air;-· while ·~eeping the Owl's rushing total in tht7 hole with a nefyardage 'of -218. The ·Bobcats had an extra oppi:>nent · ·_· the weather - to defeat as they evened the season mark at -1-1. A steady rain fell from a .cold September sky throughout the game making ball handling difficult at times. Peru fumbled only twice, recovering both, while Tarkio

had considerably mofe problems with four hobbles, losing two. Peru State, after receiving a Tarkio punt, scored the first time they had the ball, driving 66 yards in 11 plays with fullback Barry Reed going the final five yards fol the tally. Dave Bower's PAT kick was good with 7: 15 remaining in the first ,period. Coach Jack Mcintire turned to an antique offensive formation the single wing -in attacking the Owl's defense. The idea gave the offense added punch as they . rolled up 264 yards on the ground compared with only 103 against Graceland in the opening game of the season.

Footballinsights By JAMES C. CASH Peru State College rambled past the Owls of 'l'ar.kio College last Saturday night ·at the Pioneer Stadium ·in Nebraska City by a sc9re of 19-0. · The Cats inserted the singlewing. offense for the first time thi~ .year which resulted in some 264· yards rushing. What really makes the single wing formation so unique is that it doesn't require a quarterback at the helm. Barry Reed scored the initial touchdown the first quarter on a

15 yard run with uave Bower

kicking the extra point. In the second quarter Henry McCullough treated the crowd to a dazzling 60 yard run for six points with the extra point failing. Then in the third quarter Barry Reed climaxed the scoring with a one yard dash to cap all scoring for the game. In the first two games for Peru State, the defense has held its opponents to a n;iea~er. se~en points which is a fme mdication of the consistency and hard work on the defensive unit.

down that occurring during t'.i~ last ~eries of plays before intermission. Peru's best offensive drive came late in the third period as the Bobcats started on their own 20 and moved to the Tarkio six in 12 plays before the quarter ended. The 'Cats picked up five first downs in the process before Rosenbeck was stopped short of the end zone on a fourth and goal from the three yard stripe. Tarkio took over the ball; but ran only one play as quarterback Joe Greco's fumble on the two was recovered by Peru's Robert Herron. The PSC offense was not to be denied this time as fullback · Reed smashed into the line twice before scoring with 12: 36

However, it is theorized that personnel, not formations, is what wins football games. Evidence of this was convincing as freshman Gary Rosenbeck, with many second efforts,. gained 84 yards on 18 carries.

The policy for Letters to the Editor will remain pretty much the same as in past years with only a few minor changes. All letters should be typewritten, double-spaced and on a 60 space line. Writers should try to limit letters to 300 words or less and the Peru Pedagogian reserves the right to edit and cut copy due to space limitations. Deadlines for Letters to the Editor are 12 noon Tuesday for Monday's issue. Names will be withheld from letters only when there is an extreme need for anonymity and only after the writer has consulted the managing editor. Otherwise, all letters must be signed and addressed.

Freshmen to fill~out Mr D. G. Miller, Director of Student Financial Aids, reminds all first-time freshmen enrolled at PSC this year to fill out their Basic Educational Opportunity Grant application as soon as possible. This program is a new form of federal assistance for students in higher education. Every student continuing his education beyond high school is entitled, under this grant, to financial

support up to $1,400 per year, not exceeding one half of the total sum of attendance. The purpose of the application, (a family financial statement), is to find out how much money each student is entitled to. Half of this sum is given personally to the student per semester. For more information and applications see Mr Miller at the Administration building, rooms 206 or 207.

H they can still lift a racket, they are itching to play Billie Jean. Although most deny that money has anything to do with it, they probably finally figured what Booby's angle really was.

with a BS in Education. She recieved her MS in Education while at Northwest. While obtaining her degree, she taught for two and one half years and was a dorm RA for one year at Northwest Missouri State. The former Kansasan said that things were basically the same at the smaller college of Peru as they were at the larger university. She stated that the classes were smaller here and that she had a chance to get to know the students as individuals better. She also said that the faculty and administration had been extremely cooperative in helping her get settled at Peru. Miss Mier did say that there were a few differences in the college though. One of the most , notable she said was the change in terrain. The various hills in the town of Peru were a surprise to her at first. The biggest change she noticed was the fact that "I went from being one of a staff of 13 to being the ~ntire department for women, a Jack-0f-all-trades." The new instructor teaches a variety of subjects now and feels that it will giver her a chance to expand as a teacher. While at Peru she will also coach women's volleyball, softball, and track. She is undecided at the moment as to whether she will coach women's basketball. Miss Mier's first Peru volleyball team will open Friday night ··against Creighton University at home.

The only lapse in the Bearcat passing game came late in the fourth quarter when quarterback Mike Kennedy attempted a pass. The ball fell into the arms of PSC defensive end Terry Elliott who returned it 11 yards for Peru's only TD. Dave Bower's kick was good. The NWMSU victory was the ninth straight over the Bobcats. The last win for Peru State was in 1962 when they prevailed 7-6. No gridiron battles are scheduled between the two schools in the forseeable future.

Cash feels Northwest Missouri shouldn't play Cats By JAMES C. CASH Records are made to be broken and that is exactly what the Bearcats of Northwest Missouri did Saturday night in running over Peru state 68-7 erasing their previous high of 65 points against Sioux Falls College in the late 1930's. The Bearcats scored two touchdowns in the first 6 minutes of the game on long runs from

scrimmage which set the pattern for the whole game. By halftime the Bearcats led by 38-0. The only Peru scoring came in the last five minutes of the game. Northwest Missouri's quarterback while attempting to pass was hit from the blind sfde, jarring the pigskin loose. Defensive end Terry Eliot plucked the ball out of the air on the run scoring from 11 yards

out. Northwest Missouri racked up 600 yards plus against the Bobcat defense compared to only 66 total yards for Peru State. In Peru's previous two games the defense had allowed only one man to cross their goal line. After watching Northwest. Missouri's onslaught of Peru State, it was quite obvious the

Bobcats were · playing out ot their class. It appeared that Peru State had been put on the Bearcat schedule accidentally. Last week's game is history now, but something must be done if Peru State's Football Program is tO maintain some sort of respect from future opponents. Northwest Missouri should be dropped from Peru's schedule.

Harriers finish sixth· in Wesleyan meet By RICK DeKLOTZ . Peru State's cross-country team finished sixth in the Nebraska Wesleyan Invitational and won a dual event with Creighton University in recent harrier action. In the Wesleyan Invitational, freshman Ron Storant placed fifth individually, with a clocking of 21 :33, 58 seconds behind winner Dan Closter of Concordia. Concordia won the team race as they placed three runners in the top seven. The Bobcats picked up their first victory of the year with a 2233 decision over Creighton in a .race held at Peru, September 25. Phil Fritz and Storant finished the race dead even with a time of 20:50 over the four mile course.

or the coaches should concentrate on expanding their recruiting areas beyond Omaha and Iowa, signing up only the outstanding high school seniors and junior college graduates. One game certainly· doesn't make a season, but losing to any one team by a 68-7 score was to make one wonder.


Bill Sell finished third for the 'Cats at 21: 03 . Dr. Ervin Pitt's team has two meets coming up in the near future - a re-match against . Creighton October 1 in Omaha, and a dual against Doane Oct. 4 1 in Peru. Peru Vs. Creighton

Peru State CoUege rules of 1870 not quite same as today's standards By RICH MAYO

"The school building stand on I ail eminence, commanding a delightful prospect, near the Missouri River. on the line of the ~.e.l:ii:aska Railroad, in a thickly settled and healthful Jistrict, near the village of Peru, in Nemaha county. There are no drinking salloons or other haunts of vice in the neighborhood." Taken from the 1876-7 State_ Normal School catalogue, this paragraph is a good example of the priorities of the day. Today though, we know things are a bit different. Indeed, many facets of education have changed here at Peru since the cornerstone containing the information used here was laid in 1885. Back in the years around the 1870's, high school and college were completely different things. Peru State, then known as the Nebraska State Normal School, and being strictly a teachers college, had in 1876, a total enrollment of 335 .students. Insturucting these students was an eight member facuty, including Miss Eliza C. Morgan, (teacher of Literature, Rhetoric, History, and Elocution). The campus was in a vastly different co!ldition from what we see now, and it has been altered many times since the late ISOO's. A description. of the original college building follows .... , " ...was heated with wood stoves in each room. Chimneys had been built foto the walls on eachside and end, placed so the . stoves of each room on each story could be connected. Rooms rent in the dormitory was four dollars a term. For that amount the student got a wood stove. When the board, (presumably ' the state board of school affairs), met in July 1869, plans were made to reerect a stair from the third floor to the belfry. Stoves were to be purchased for twenty roonis'along with certain other necessities, on six months time if possible ...for fuel, coal oil for the kerosene lamps and toher incidents there was a tax of forty cents a week. Board in the hall was three dollars per week." Those were the good aspects of the school, the rules of conduct , were a completely different , thing indeed. ' "The students were forbidden to attend games of chance, such

Freshman Gary Rosebeck 'ned 133 yards on 24 carries, e rest of the offensive team d muster only 49 additional ds as the season record fell to 3.

Rosenbeck, a gutsy halfback m Gutherie Center, Iowa eked up quite a few yards on cond efforts after appearing to stopped for shorter gains. Peru State received the first eak of the game as Robert

Herron knockid the ball out of Bulldog quarterback John Seevers' hands. Peru defensive and Terry Elliot recovered the ball as the first period ended. Senior quarterback Terry Criger then drove the team 56 yards in eight plays with Ario Wusk catching a seven yard Criger pass for the Tally with 11:14 to play in the first half. Criger, playing for the first time since the Graceli,md contest because of a knee injury, looked sharp when he got a chance to throw completing three of five passes. However, blocking from the offensive line broke down too often as he was dropped for losses totaling 33

yards while attempting to pass. After an exchange of punts, Concordia knotted the score at seven apiece as Seevers ran into the end zone from the four yard line 3:~2 to ~lay in the half. The big gamer m the 38 yard march for the Bulldog~ had a 30 yard pass coll'.pletion from Seev~rs to spht end.

Concordia scored again on their next possesion after a 54 yard punt by Rosenbeck went into the Bulldog end zone. The Bulldogs marched 80 yards in nine plays with halfback Duane Hilgendorf doing almost all the damage on the ground with 59 yards. Hilgendorf's final 41 yards on the drive came on a burst through the line en-route to the end zone with 3:49 left in the third period. Concordia's final tally came on their next possesion with 11:46 to play in the game as halfback Tim Warneke slid through the right side of his line, climaxing a 63 yard march.

Tom is a three letterman from Algona, - and had been counte~ on run the offensive unity. other key injury was to

sophomore Jim Rezac, a 260 lb. offensive tackle from Valparaiso, Nebraska. Rezac injured his ligaments in his left leg during a scrimmage against Nebraska Wesleyan and was to anchor Peru State's offensive line. And finally, there is Terry Criger, offensive halfback from Nebraska City. Criger strained the ligaments in his right knee against Graceland College in the season opener and has been sidlined for the past two games. Terry did though see limited

action against Concordia College and is reported to be back at full strength. With the absence of Froehlich at quarterback, Mcintire has had to use Criger at quarterback whenever possible. Originally Coach Mcintire had planned to start Froehlich at the helm and 1 use Criger as a halfback. Now that Terry cnger 1s healthy again, Mcintire plans to insert him at quarterback using either the T formation or the single wing.

The case for Even though we are told by the government that some drugs are illegal because they are harmful to us, there are many drugs available legally that are known to the poisonous to our bodies. Alcohol ' is available everywhere, though it destroys our brains and our liver, as well as being the major factor in over half of all fatal traffic accidents. Cigarettes, easily obtained, ruin our lungs. Aspirin eats our stomach's lining, but it is ¡(l commonly used pain killer. Coffee has recently been linked to a greater probability of heart attacks. Many prescription drugs are known to be harmful, yet are prescribed frequently and manufactured in massive amounts. Barbituates, phenothiajines, and amphetamines are good examples. Over production of these drugs caused them to appear on the black market and destroy our brothers and sisters. This all leads to my main point, mariiuana should be

iegalized, but not because it is a sacrament as it has been called. The fact that marijunan(l helps the user to relieve tension and feel free and happy does not make getting high a revolutionary experience. Alcohol and barbituates have the same effect. Any drug which allows a person to feel free without really being free can act as an opiate blocking the development of the individuals' consciousness. The laws against marijuana are an example. of repressive legislation aimed at forcing individuals into socially acceptable institutions and escape mechanisms even in leisure time. Tranquilizers and stimulants are acceptable, but. marijuana is not. Marijuana has become acceptable to a lar_ge part of the population in spite of laws against it. So the laws against marijuana must be changed to end the unfair persecution of marijuana users. Prohibition has never succeeded in controlling the use of drugs, and it never will.

But to those petitioned, sued and ed to obtain a grand jury e of the incident, Attorney ral Elliot Richardson's sion to renew federal inigative efforts represents first favorable government tion to the pressures of ate citizens and a staggering ulation of allegations.

Crucial to any new investigation of the shooting which left four students dead and nine wounded are two key questions: Was there a conspiracy on the part of the Ohio Guardsmen to shoot students? Did Terrence Norman, an acknowledged former FBI informer posing as a photographer the day of the incident, fire a pistol preceding the Guard fusillade, hitting a student and possibly triggering the Guardsmen? Efforts to reopen the iryvestigation include: a petition campaign to the President bearing 50,000 signatures, a .suit


involving parents of the slain students, two of the wounded students and a member ·or the President's Commission on Campus Unrest, a recently released book by Peter Davies entitled "The Truth About Kent State," and a study by the Board of Church and Society of the United Methodist Church. A crucial issue in the suit to compel a grand jury investigation is closely related to an issue involved in the current litigation over the President's Watergate recordings. In both cases the administration is claiming power to control the

The big news has to be rock industry's answer to ergate, the payola scandal. yola, for those who don't , means bribing a disc y or radio station with , money and wild women. change the station would a certain record often to te it's sales. Since the air es are supposed to remain ased this is against the law. ter investigations took e, Clive Davis was fired as ·ident of Columbia Records. ing his reign as president, · built Columbia into a top rd company by signing such t as; Chicago, Santana, s Joplin, Simon and Gare!, Byrds, Sly Stone, Bob an and others. Instigations are still taking

place at other record companies. This was also the summer of the largest rock concert ever as 600,000 jammed into a raceway in a New York town to hear the Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead and the Band play for twelve hours. Like Woodstock, Watkins. Glen will live on, as an album and film documentary are presently in the making. The hot months also brought a new idea in pressing record albums. Songs were being pressed on colored vinyl. Grand Funk's "We're An American Band" is pressed on gold-colored vinyl (shows the band's successes) and "Bloodshot", the J. Giels' Band new album is pressed on red vinyl. This is probably the biggest change to record packaging since they began to make stereo albums. Finally there were some

strange titles for songs wmten. Dan Hicks released "How Can I Miss Yoo. If You Won't Go Away" and a new pair of musicians Delbert · and Glen wrote "If You Don't Leave Me Alone I'll Find Someone Who Will." Now to take a look at some of the summer's record releases. Though this is kind of old to review and his new double album should be out by now I have to review "Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player" (MCA-2100). In this albumt Elton John has again prove!} that he can do it all. ' On this album John fantasizes being a boy in love with his teacher "Teacher I Need You", being a famous rock star (he doesn't have to fantasize on this one) "I'm Going To Be A Teenage Idol" and living back in

the fifties with "Crocodile Rock." Also included is "Daniel", a story of a one-eyed war veteran who can find peace in Spain. Two of the biggest disappointing albums came from a couple of ex-Beatles. George Harrison's "Living In A Material World" (Apple SMAS3410) is made up of mostly sermons not songs. With support from expert back-up men such as; Ringo Starr, Nicky Hopkins, Klaus Voorman and Jim Keltner the music is bearable. Paul McCartney's "Red Ro~e Speedway" (Apple SMAL-3409) however shows some signs of McCartney returning as a great song writer. "My Love", "One More Kiss" and "Single Pigeon" saves the album from being a total failure. The over eleven minute medley is a little too

long. While I'm talking about disappointing albums let's not forget Led Zeppelin's "Houses Of The Holy" (Atlantic-SD 7255). Well, I guess it's alright if you like songs about teenage romances with senseless lyrics. It's certainly not the best they've done. On the bright side there is Yes's "Yessongs" (Atlantic SD3-100), a three album set full of their best stuff. Very very impressive is "Your Move" which leads into "All Good People" followed by "Long Distance Runaround." "Roundabout" and "Close To The Edge" are also included. Yes is a group full of great talent, I especially enjoy Jon Anderson's songwriting and vocal talents. FRANKD'ADDESA

laygirl, Hgreat entertainment magazine for women"

er Cent."

By Steve Pummel Well, as most of us kllow, the newest magazine for women is Playgirl. It seems to be a great tintertainment magazine for women. Women seem to react strongly to Playgirl. It features many of the same things Playboy does. Many women interested in art, travel, and literature, and only through a magazine can women enjoy men "au natural" in privacy and within the limits of the law. They have made an excellent attempt to appeal to the esthetically erotic and in-

tellectual capacities of the female individual. Most women feel that they hope to see the day when men and women regard each other with mutual respect and admiration. But the women feel that the men generally are refusing to accept the fact that their once sacred, .d,ouble standard worm has turned. Some women are having a hearty laugh at the dismay, disdain, and outright anger of the men who consider themselves threatened. However I would like to take this opportunity to say how

pleased I am to see Americ@ la'ughter. Ironic, isn't it, that a magazine women finally saying in effect, that men can be beautiful, too. for girls could prove to make us I can still hear many people guys have an appreciation of our saying that "girls are made of own bodies; on the other hand, sugar and spice."

edical technology program approved at Peru State College A medical technology gram which has been in the ussion stages for the past has been approved at Peru e. The degree program will ist of three years of onpus training with a fourth at a cooperating Lincoln spital to complete training. All students who complete the course will be awarded a ~chelor of Science degree in addition to medical technology ification. Ms Shirley Brick-

man, Education Coordinator for Schools of Medical Technology at the two cooperating hospitals in Lincoln, Albert Brady, acting chairman of Peru's department of science and mathematics, and Dr. Clyde Barrett, Peru's Dean of Arts and Sciences outlined the program as follows; General studies requirements for _graduation from Peru willtake up most of the first three years, along with requirements which all approved schools of

medical technology have as prerequisites for admission. Some of the prerequisites in.elude; a minimum of 16 hours of chemistry, 16 hours of .biology, at least one math course and one course in physics. A minimun of 90 semester hours are to be in the initial three years, with a fourth year including courses in biochemistry, hemotology, immunology and serology, immunohematology (bloodbank), microbiology, urinalysis

and Clinical microscopy. "It should be clarified," Dean Barrett stated, ''that enrolling in the Peru State medical technology program does not assure acceptance into the Lincoln Medical technology schools, but the new affiliation with Lincoln General and Bryan Memorial hospital enhances the student's acceptance satisfactory completion of the first three years at Peru State." "Similarly, entry into the final

year of medical technology training does not assure the degree," Dr. Barrett added. Medical technology majors should apply for admission to the Lincoln hospital schools during their junior year, and since medical technology entrants are accepted three times a year, in February, June and March, students may begin their preliminary training at any term.

EDITORIALS ''IMPEACHMENT STRENGTH NOT WEAKNESS" With the convictwn and resignation of former Vice." President Spiro Agnew the drums for the impeachment of Richard Nixon grow louder. It is tragic, sacrilegious and ugly that the man the people unanimously elected to the second highest political position of our nation should be connected to such corrupt politics. However the conviction of Spiro Agnew should teach the American people that the office of the Vice Presidency or more importantly the Presidency is not above reproach. These executives should be treated with high respect if they are worthy of it, but they are not by any means gods whose high positions are considered sacred or untouchable. l don't like the idea of impeachment, but it shouldn't be looked upon as some sign of weakness. Instead impeachment is a strength, a tool we


don't want to employ, but it's there if we need it. The power to impeach is .one reason which makes this country a democracy. As Thomas Jefferson penned in the Declaration of Independence: "That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive ... , it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." During the Watergate hearings this summer famous quotes from the' world ·Of sports were echoed. John Dean quoted John Mitchell as saying "when the going gets tough, the tough get going." Another famous quote I would like to add is "the game isn't over until the last man is out." Frank D' Addesa Managing Editor

Atlantic Records with Asylum under their label have the habit · of signing the best new talent on records. All three of these musicians present their own unique style with their own written material. For instance there's Steve Ferguson (Asylum SD 5060). After listening to this album I couldn't believe it was his first, he sounds that professional. Not only is he pretty fair on piano, but his lyrics and vocals are also his strong points. His lyrics struck me the hardest. I'm left with the feeling he is being completely honest with his audience and after listening you feel as though you've just met him in person. There are no weak spots on the whole album. Garland Jeffreys (Atlantic SD 7253) is another promising artist which there is only a matter of time before his name is familiar to all record buyers. Strong lyrics are also Jeffreys' strongest asset. His folk-blues style is very unique. This isn't his first album, Garland has recorded on the Vanguard label already. Ned Doheny (Asylum SD 5059) is a hard driving guitarist who plays hard driving rock.

Music is a business and with every business there are people· ready and waiting to rip you off. For $4,000 Peru State College _got ripped off royally when the Greyhound bus left off Lobo. Tours are also a part of the business. Lobo, who takes very little time out for tours believes a show is a show. It matters little whether he is in Kansas, Iowa, or Peru, Nebraska. He is doing a job and is not singing to please himself because he has sung each song enough times to break every girls heart at least twice. Kent La Voie spent years upon years in college with no major or no self direction. Then he decided to break into the music business. He happened to stwnble onto a type of music that appealed to the public and turned on the boppers so he worked hard for 10 years and made the Top 40. Some people feel Lobo has emerged with phenomenal impetus on the music scene. To quote Rolling Stone Magazine in their interview with the Archies, and Lobo does ride a close second to the Archies, he is "a sound argwnent against the. capitalistic system." To quote Lobo "I have never worked a day in my life and I hope I never have to." None of his songs are true !if~

experiences. This will come as a shock to all those bleeding hearts who identified with all his songs and felt they must have been written for them personally. In one of his songs the lyrics say "Stopped sending flowers to yo.ur apartment," Lobo said he has never sent flowers to anyone in his life. The emotions he says are for real but the situations aren't. He directs this so-called emotion toward females who make up 95 per cent of his listening audience. "I could care less about sound, I'm a songwriter. In ten years Led Zeppelin will be part of a lost era and people will still be drawn towards songs like a dog named Boo." This is to say that heavy rock like all fads will fade away and Zeppelin will no longer pull in 180 grand in N.Y. but Lobo who is confident enough of his self-expression will make a success of such a challenge. In reaction to how he feels about being interviewed he had this to say; "Reviews aren't worth much and I pay little attention to them." This sent my journalistic ego downward. He feels that an interviewer is ·always out to find something wrong. with a musician or any other star that comes to play at any small college like Peru. Then the interviewer can say "I

put him in his place!" I was not thoroughly preoccupied with this idea although the thought had entered my mind. By next year Lobo predicts he will be a bonafied millionaire due to the fact he. has signed a contract with Warner Brothers. Will they be in for a big surprise. Now that you know what Lobo is all about you know why the concert was the way it was. I hate to use the word concert loosely because when you speak of concerts you're usually speaking of entertainment. In reviewing a concert we must take into consideration the concert in its entirety. Jim Stafford had all the possibilities of being good had he been playing to a good audience. It ·was hard to hear him above the whistlers, obnoxious drunks and repulsive hecklers. The concert itself left a lot to be desired and some of the audience fell far below college mentality standards. To pay $4,000 on a popularity contest between who can whistle and "Woo Woo". the loudest is an outrage, but to give Lobo what . he expected from a small Midwest college is almost a sacrilege. This is not to say that Lobo is a terrible person or that he's a terrible musician. He's niether, either, or.

Bobcats shoot down Ravens, 26-0, gain second shutout of seaso leadership of senior quarterback By RICK DeKLOTZ Terry Criger, was verv sharp in Peru State's football team recorded their second shutout of the first quarter, putting 14 the season October 6, with a 26-0 points on the board. Kim Tennal victory over Benedictine College scored first on a one yard plunge mid-way through the period. in Atchison, Kansas. With time running out in the The Bobcats scored in every quarter, as they raised their quarter, Criger climaxed a drive season mark to 2-3. The defense by running nine yards for was especially effective, another score. George Henallowing the Ravens just 58 drickson added the extra point yards in total offense, compared · following each touchdown. After a Peru drive stalled near to 285 yards for Peru. The offensive squad, under the the Raven goal line mid-way through the second stanza,

Hendrickson kicked the first Bobcat field goal of the season, from 18 yards putting Peru ahead 17-0. The ability of the offense to move the ball effectively is shown by the few punts needed. Gary Rosebeck had to kick the ball away just four times, averaging 39.2 yards per boot. A big plus for Peru was the running attack, which was well balanced for the first time this season. With Barry Reed, (87

yards) Tennal, (70 yards) and Rosebeck (53 yards) all running well, the Raven defense could not key on any one player, enabling the offensive machine to run smoothly. On the other hand a sore spot shows up in the statistics under penalties. The Peruvians were penalized nine times for 95 yards. A penalty during a drive can stop it cold, and possibly change the momentum of a game.

The Bobcats scored nin points in the second half wit many players getting a chanc to play. Tennal scored his secon touchdown of the night with jus 1:08 gone in the third quarter a two yard run. Hendricks again added the extra point. The team this week will preparing for a Nebrask College Conference scra against the Eagles of Chadro State.

Senior SGA "Commander-inChief ," Charlie Pavolis, said that he wished to use his office to increase and define the powers of class president and the SGA itself. "I would like to set a precedent and example for the other class officers and all PSC students of getting involved in the workings of the college," Pavolis stated. He went on to say that he felt past presidents never did anything really substantial becuase they lacked the knowledge of the extent of their office's power and influence. Pavolis appealed for the support of the entire student body in his endeavor to regain meaningful representation to the organization.

ByFRANKD'ADDESA Besides the traditional events and alumni, the 52nd Peru State Homecoming brought Governor J. J. Exon to the College as a guest of President and Mrs Douglas Pearson. The Governor arrived in Peru at 1:30 p.m. Saturday accompanied by his wife. Also making the trip were: Dr. and Mrs Norman Otto who is the Administrative As~istant for the Governor, Senator and Mrs Cal Carsten and Board of Trustee membe~s Mr George Egermayer and Mr Ward Reesman, who were also accompanied by their wives. _ Their day at Peru began with the party taking in the PeruKearney football game with Dr. Pearson and his wife. Exon's

reactiontothecontestwasthat he "was pleased and happy for us." . Following the game, the Governor and his party were given a tour of the buildings on campus by the President. Specifically discussed during the tour was the gymnasium. The group discussed the building though no specific comments were made by the Governor. General facilities, upkeep ·of the campus and the dormitories were topics also discussed by the group. President Pearson believes "they were generally impressed by what they found." A dinner reception at the President's mansion followed the tour. There students Emily Rosewell and Curtis Robinson entertained the President's

Billings resigns as V. P. By FRANK D' ADDESA John Billings has resigned as the Student Governing Association vice-president stating there were "personal reasons" which involved his decision. Billings, who announced his resignation on October 15, which took effect the next day, made only this statement; "The reasons for my resignation are personal, I give my full support to the SGA and what they hope to accomplish during the year."


Billings refused to comment on any further questioning. According to SGA President Dean Young, a nomination will be made at tomorrow night's meeting and a replacement will be made with the members approval. With his resignation, Billings will lose his positions on the President's Advisory Committee, the Academic Affairs Committee, the SCB, and any other committee he has been appointed to as vice-president.

gu _;s with their musical ta ~nts. During the evening hours of his visit, the Governor reiterated his previous committment that the College will never be closed. The cordial, informal reception also brought out a discussion on the positive aspects of Peru State. The Governor's stay ended at 9 p.m. with his departure to Lincoln. Pearson stated there are no future meetings planned between the Governor and himself. Dr. Pearson feels as a result of Exon's visit "the College is in a sounder possition." Pearson also believes that the student body and people at the Homecoming game should be highly commended for their demeanor 1uring the governor's presence.

Attempt made to revive Peru Jaycees An attempt is being made to revive a Jaycee chapter in Peru through the efforts of the Falls City Jaycees and Dean Bogle, extension chairman of that chapter. Bogle and area vice-president Ron Hoyle of Nebraska City and two others from the Falls City chapter were in Peru last week meeting with interested young men in their attempt to start a club again after a similar venture under sponsorship by another club failed earlier in the year. In explaining the organization, Bogle said that there are two main requirements, that one believes and has an interest in himself, and that he believes and has an interest in his com munity. Membership is open to men from the ages of 18 to 36, according to Bogle. An attempt was made by the Bellevue chapter to organize a Peru group last February, but failed to generate enough interest. According to Bogle, a total of 20 members are necessary to be recognized as a chapter on the state and federal levels. The next meeting of the group has been slated for Sunday at 7:30 p.m. at the Bank of Peru. All those interested in joining the organization are urged to attend.

Letters to the Editor

The case for the yearbook, the 1974 Peruvian, is being presented to you, the faculty and students of Peru State College. The crisis involves the production of the 1974 annual. We MUST have money to put out the Peruvian, as well as students to work on the staff. It is up to all of us. Do you want a 1974 Peruvian or not? The next couple of weeks will determine whether or not there will be a yearbook. A sales campaign for the yearbook will be set up during the week of October 22-29. What is sold during this period will indicate whether or not financial supply is available for a yearbook. Money MUST be PAID during this time. A minimum of 450 books must be sold. Campus residents may order and pay at the dorms. Commuters may order and pay at the Bob Inn in the Student· Center. Another major problem facing the yearbook is a staff. We must have people who are willing to work on the annual and attend the meetings. Five or six people simply cannot handle the total responsibility of putting together a yearbook. Surely there are more people on the PSC campus who can help than have been showing up at the meetings. HOW CAN YOU HELP? JOIN THE STAFF! Yearbook meetings are held during convo period in Ed. 218. The next meeting will be held October 31. Your cooperation will determine the yearbook. If you want a 1974annual there are two things you can do- buy a yearbook NOW and, or join the staff. I feel a yearbook is a very important and worthwhile aspect of college life. It serves as a record of memories of people, places, and events. It's up to all of us to preserve the memories of this year through a 1974 Peruvian. Bobbi Thiesfeld Peruvian Editor Last week the traditional elections for class officers were held. As in the past few years, apathy again was the incumbant. Out of the sixteen positions which needed to be filled six officers were elected unopposed and four positions had to be nominated from the floor at the time of the elections. These people nominated were also elected unopposed. The results of the voting turnouts were just as bad. In the freshman. elections .only fifty voted, twenty seniors showed up to vote for their class officers. I was unable to get the voting results from the other two classes, but theJurnouts were about the same. I urge the new class officials to use whatever power they .have and make the offices they hold meaningful, not just something which will look good on an application. Apathy has been a way of life on the Peru campus for too long. Let's begin to make an attempt to end it.

1275 band members boost homecoming By PHILLIS BUTRICK Approximately 1275 band members from 18 area bands helped to boost spirits for Peru State's 52!nomecoming. Weather conditions of the previous week made it impossible for several bands to attend. The inviting Qf. bands to participate in the celebrating of homecoming has been going on for four years. The first year threr were only seven bands and the number has been growing ever since. Parade judges were Gary Numan - Syracuse, Rev. Maurice Ottsen - Nebraska City, and Dale Duensing - Syracuse. The trophies for the parade were provided by the Peru Chamber


of Commerce. Parade trophies went to Class A-Creighton Pren High School; Class B - Ashland Grenwood Public School; Class C - Platteview School; Class D Humboldt High School; Class I Aubtn'n Jr. High School; and Class II - Humboldt Jr. High School. A "Band-0-Rama" was presented by the bands dtn'ing halftime of the Kearney vs PSC. ~ame. The bands played "Hosts of Freedom" under the direction of Paul Ramp -Auburn Jr. High, "Salutation" directed by Eugene Walden - AshlandGreenwood, and ·"United Nations" directed by Tom Osborne - Humboldt High School.

with the expectations of the general reading public in this area, give the Pedagogian a conservative standpoint. When a more "radical" view is expressed, the reactions can be almost shattering. It's refreshing to find a new style of bold journalism developing here. I hope Terrie will be braced for whatever repercussions arise, especially if she has not previously been exposed to public response of this nattn'e. In the third edition' of the Ped this semester, Ms. Funkhouser's byline appeared with an article on the "marriage-trap." The story had weaknesses which I will not eieaborate on now. But it raised many an eyebrow on campus, and inflll'iated several readers. Two weeks later another controversial Funkhouser article appeared, this time tearing down Lobo, Peru's feature Homecoming

Dear Editor: I would like to comment on the "Rip off' article in the October 15 Ped. As far as I'm concerned the only rip off I saw was the article. I do not personally know the writer nor am I aware of her previous stories, but if they are the same quality as the Lobo article I can see why she had to write an editorial complaining about the complaints!. She really rips off Lobo because (1) he went to college without being gung ho, (2) he's never worked a day in his life and doesn't want to, and (3) he isn't writing from experience nor playing simply because he loves to. The first item can apply to millions of people. The article itself refutes the second item by saying he left college and worked 10 years to gain his present position. The third item can apply to almost any professional musician who is out to earn a living and feed his face. Admittedly Lobo is not a showman. He and his group were good as musicians and played the songs they play well. They lived up to their part of the contract-nothing said they had to love their job. Jim Stafford was the better part of the con· cert because he is a showmar besides being a fantastic · musician. He rated a standing ovation when he left. As a performer he needs and expects audience feedback and what he got was not what was stated in the article. A few people hollered and 'woo-woo' ed and that was that. There were certainly not enough to disrupt the rest of the people. I think the writer needs to get her facts (and head) together and quit coming on like a disgruntled teeny bopper who just found out her idol can't live on love of music alone! Kerry Krause To the Editor: Yes, I started a nasty rumor about vour news paper to the effect that you will not print letters to the· editor. Only nine hours elapsed before you repeated the rumor to me in context. It is too bad that your newspaper can't be as acclll'ate as the campus rumor mill. You seem to have stopped printing facts and started printing op1mons. Terrie Funkhouser's editorials are so devoid of content a logical argument couldn't be based on them. Mr D'Addesa, your editorials are either repetitive, superficial, empty, or short of facts and long on supposition. I think with a little more practice you will be able to write an editor.ial with all of these shortcomings. Keep up the good work and the rumor mill will soon replace yotn' news paper. Class ARumor Starter James C. Smith

guest. Again the approach wa negative, the reaction stron WHEW! I wish readers woul react to my stories as strong! as they do to Terrie's. But I' only a meek sportswriter, modern-day Quixote in quest Objective Journalism: and th Objective Journalism is what believe Ms. Funkhouser shoul' strive for in her writing. I'm n saying Ms Funkhouser doesn know what she's talking abou nor am I saving that she is n entitled to her opinion. But the are situations where a strai news story is appropriate, an an editorial is out of place. I notice a considerable amo of pessimism, even bitterness the two articles mentioned.

ByR.E. Wernsman Jr. Homecoming is for enrtainment. Entertainment, e and simple.

Wilson was Ray Boeche who displayed an enormous amount of talent during the Thursday night show and even more two days later, due to his dependence on a quick reply from his 'wife' who on this night had the decided handicap of reading from a book. In spite of the handicap, both Boeche and Miss Wilson displayed an obvious talent of reacting to each other throughout the play. Boeche portrayed excellently, the nervous, twitchy, forgetful exectutive his part called for .. Miss Wilson's actions and voice inflections on stage were surprisingly similar to those of the actress she was replacing. Again doing a very fine and noteworthy job was Mike K Kelly. The performance marked his fourth consecutive role in a homecoming play, and was as good as his best, in "The Tempest" his sophomore year. The entire meaning qf his role had little trouble being communicated to the audience, as he grabbed their attention when he spoke, and kept it until he finished.

nother view on the Lobo Concert 05, 211, 212, rnKS


; country at


By RANDY WOLF .There has been various ments around the campus t the Lobo concert was bad just plain not worth the ney. The main criticism was his jokes were bad! Did e people want Lobo or Joey p? t's examine the concert lf. What could we expect or dn't we expect? Lobo has several hits during the past e or four years and has · yed nationwide acclaim as a artist. The news of who uld play for Homecoming ert certainly 'brought exment around campus when it announced, and Lobo sang of his hits plus a few more. All all he met my expectations I don't think I was the only e that was satisfied.

Financially some people think Peru was "ripped off" by Lobo. I talked with SCB's Jim Lennerton and got the financial facts. Lobo was booked last summer for $4,000 flat fee before his new hit single "How Can I Tell Her About You" was released. If he had been booked afterwards, it would have cost us about $5,000. The Student Activities fund contained $6,200 at the beginning of the semester, $1,000 for eight movies, $500 for Red Dog, $500 for the Homecoming Dance, which was made possible by the $542.50 taken in at the door of Lobo, plus $400 for Lobo, has caused the fund to dwindle to $742.50. So by having Lobo we were able to have a mediocre concert plus we were able to pay for a band for the homecoming dance. We

came out ahead on the deal. Individually, if a student went to all eight movies this semester, both dances so far (Red Dog and Blackberry Winter) and . the concert, he would save himself about 12 dollars this semester. This is based on $2.00 for each movie (average in Omaha), 4.00 for the concert (minimum in Omaha) and 2.00 for each dance. Realistically one is able to see a movie for $.92, get into each dance for .90, or see a concert for $1.80. How can anyone complain about those prices! There is yet another dance in·, sight but it is still a question mark but Lennerton hopes it will sometime before Christmas.

Davidson-Palmer wins window contest Davidson-Palmer walked away with first prize in th~, window painting contest at the · Student Center during the October 13 HomecomiI)g festivities. Davidson-Palmer proved that a little poetry and artistic talent were the winning combination in claiming the title. Tri Beta's craftsmen were a strong second portraying the science building and cleverly inserting their name to fit their slogan. Sigma Tau Delta showed third by . strategically placing Charlie Brown at his psychiatrists' office. Those three proved to be too much for Alpha Mu Omega's numerous formulas,' Lambda Delta Lambda's science building and P.S.S.S.S.'s Bobcat as they failed to impress the judges enough for the first three prizes. But the students of Peru as well as all visitors at the Homecoming enjoyed the merrily decorated student center windows, while they lasted.

probably rate high on the scale of understatements heard within the past few years. Besides a drop in the amount of essential material during that period, there was a definite drop in moral which could probably, in great part, be traced back to the second semester of the 197071 school year. Hardly incidental to the negative side of the play was the complications received from the concert performed on stage two days prior to opening night, and tbs breakdown of two lights that were essential to eliminating distracting shadows on the back of the stage. If questioned as to what the major hurdle is facing the Peru State College Players, the answer receiving the most support would probably be the lack of attendance at p_Iays which account, for at least hundreds of manhours. As important to the play as any of it's actors or actresses, is a responsive audience that can show a reception of the meaning being conveyed to them from on stage.

Alumni feel Peru State changed over the years "It's changed a lot", at least some alumni would .tell you. · , ill estimated 250 .Peru State Alumni returned to Peru for it's 52nd Homecoming. Alumni journeyed from all parts of the United States to participate in the celebrating of Homecoming. Alumni came from Alaska, California, Oklahoma, Colorado, Oregon, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Mississippi, Iowa, Kansas, and all parts of Nebraska. ' At a dinner Friday, October 12, at Arbor Manor in Auburn 17 of the 40 year alumni and 10 of the 25 year alumni husbands and wives were present. These classes of 1933 and 1948 were the reunion groups. At the all-alumni luncheon Saturday approximately 200 ate and visited. The Thousands Oaks Chapter was in charge of initi;il

registration and the morning coffee. Coffee was also served in the afternoon by the SCB. In visiting with alumni some will say Peru State has changed a lot since they went to school. There are many new buildings. Talking to Mr Curt Lindell he said that when they ~ould have a victory they would have to climb to the top of the gym and climb out the window to ring the victory bell. He said he could remember getting back from a game at 3:oo in the morning av.ct climbing up and ringing the bell. To resent graduates Peru has changed even some. They feel it has changed for the better. Mr Edward Craren Peru State Administrator said in visiting with alumni who had visited with current students that they felt there wasn't really a generation gap with things close to their heart, meaning Peru State.

Bobcats whitewash Lopers, 28-0 By RICK DeKLOTZ .

Peru State College's Homecoming theme "The Sun Shines Brighter Every Day", was highly appropriate Saturday (October 13) afternoon as the Bobcat football team upset the Kearney State Antelopes 280.

The win marked the first time since 1965 the 'Cats have beaten Kearney. The victory also evened the season record at 3-3, including a 1-0 mark in the. Nebraska College Conference. After a week of strong practice, the Bobcats were ready mentally and' emotionally to play their best game of the season to date. Although the win was a team ·effort, Peru players individually beat their opposition consistently, wearing down the Antelopes while gaining momentum as the game

progressed. The Peru defense was stellar, holding Kearney to nine first downs, and 46 yards on the ground in 24 attempts. The defensive "front five" of the 'Cats - Robert Her.ron, Bob Winter, Ken Jackson, Arnie Allgood and Terry Elliot - plus linebackers Rod Wartman and Gus Krajicek were mainly responsible for Kearney's poor showing overland, holding the Antelopes to less than two yards per avetage carry. The men in the "pit" of the offensive front line - Steve Krajicek, Ray Woerlen, Dennis Stones, two way performer Gus Krajicek plus Dick Leech blew holes open all afternoon, enabling Peru runners to amass 330 yards on the ground. Peru ran 91 offensive plays, compared to 51 for Kearney as Bobcat ball control made the Antelope

The Bobkitten volleyball team has won one and dropped two in match play in the last week. The team met Tarkio on Peru's home court on the loth of October for two games, varsity and Jr. Varsity and won .both games in two straight sets. The Varsity played first, winning by scores of 15-13 and 151. The Jr. Varsity then took over and downed the Tarkio Jayvees 15-1 and 15-13. Peru's luck didn't hold as they traveled to Omaha on Monday, the 15th of October and dropped two matches. The Bobkittens

lost to UNO and the College of Saint Mary's. UNO took just two sets to beat the 'Kittens,' winning by scores of 15-12 and 15-10. St. Mary's needed a little more time, taking the first and third sets with Peru winning the middle one. Scores were 15-6, 15-3, and 15-5. Inexperience is still a major factor in Peru's battle for a winning season. The team was hurt furthe~ by the loss Friday of veteran player June Bottcher, a senior with 3 years of college ball to her credit. It is not known at this time if June will be able to return in time to finish the season.

Kearney State defeated Peru State 23-36 in a cross country race held at Peru Saturday, October 13. Churck Maser of Kearney turned in the day's best time, 19: 55 over the four mile course, beating our PSC's Bill Sell (20:03) and Ron Storant (20:08). The next 'Cat runner to cross the finish line was Phil Frtitz with a clocking of 21: 11. The balance of the Antelope squad was clear, as they ciptured places 4-7 and 9-12. Future competition for Dr. Erv Pitts' squad includes a re-scheduled match against Northwest Missouri State today, and the Midwest A.A.U, at Kearney October 27. RICK DeKLOTZ

GAME NOTES: The Bobcats 28-0 victory over Kearney State was Peru's first Nebraska College Conference victory since the fifth game of the 1966 campaign when they defeated Chadron State 41-7 in Peru. Quite a dry spell! Barry Reed was named the Omaha World-Herald's State College Player of the Week for his efforts against Kearney. The senior fullback gained 126 yards on 37 carries two touchdowns. TRIVIA QUESTION - Peru's 1961 team finished with a 7-1-1 record, Who was the loss to? ANSWER - The lone setback of the 1961 season was to· Panhandle A&M (Goodwell, Oklahoma) to the tune of 56-0~ The game was Peru's Homecoming and final contest of the year.

This past summer Craren coached and started a very successful swimming league in Auburn. Peru State College has never had a swimming program and a AAU team may be the closest it will ever come to one. So those who directed their flagrant remarks at Peru State College and its lack of a swimming program can now do something about it.

Three plunges by Reed into the line brought the ball to the one and Kim Tennal scored. The large Homecoming crowd was almost certain of a Peru win as they led by 21 with 10: 19 to play. The final thrill for the day came as defensive back Otis Samuel stepped in front of a Rich Schwaenka pass at the Kearney 24 and raced untouched for the final sc9re. The bouyant Bobcats' next game is against powerful Wayne· State, October 27. Kickoff time is 7:30 in the Oak Bowl.

jackets have been ordered

By JAMES C. CASH Letter jackets and bfankets have been ordered as of last Friday according to Athletic Director Jack Mcintire. Mcintire was very apologetic about the long delay in reordering the Jackets but one must be aware of what caused the delay in the first place. Letter jackets are ordered only once a year by the Athletic Director at the end of the school year when all sports seasons are completed and the monogram winners names and jacket sizes are turned into Mcintire, who then orders the jackets with the expectation that they will be available when the athletes return to school in the fall. At the end of the 1971772 school year Mcintire had the names

and jacket sizes of all the lettermen and went ahead and ordered the jackets through the Nebraska City Sporting Goods 'Store with the receiving date to be December 19th. (Mcintire showed me his copy of the order form.) Unfortunately the jackets never showed up on the receiving date. Mclntire's speculation was that the Sportmg Goods Store never filled the order because at the time he ordered the letterjackets the original cost for one jacket was twently three dollars. Between the time the order was made and delivery the cost of one jacket had skyrocketed to thirty five dollars due to the increase in the price of leather. The sleeves on letterjackets are all leather. Another significant fact in

whether jackets are ordered is if the P.E. Departments budget can afford it. As Mcintire said, "The needs of the P.E. department comes first, then the jackets." Some of Peru States Athletes have waited a year and a half for their jackets and Coach Mcintire feels he is not at fault even though he is the Athletic Director and responsible for ordering and seeing that the lettermen get their jackets. Mcintire would not reveal from whom he has ordered the jackets from this time but said everyone who has earned a jacket to date will receive theirs and that he doesn't anticipate anymore problems with their· delivery. .

Journalism student defends Terrie


By MIKE LANCE The United State has its Nixon, the mideast has their Israel, T.V. has Howard Cosen, and Peru State has Ms. Terrie Funkhouser. A freshman journalism major from Papillion, Terri is by far the most controversial girl on campus. Her initiation into college writing has brought about more cheers and jeers to Peru since the 1952 Missouri River flood. Editorials articles and letters written 'by Ms'. Funkhouser have turned people on, off, up, and down. Last week she received top billing in three of the four letters to the editor concerning a previous feature on the Peru Homecoming concert. Criticism, compliments, insuits, and jokes seem to follow our reporter on ·each assignment. One half of the people she interviews probably do not _

Since, ~e be~inning of my reign as editor, wo!llen s hberabon _has become one of the most written about. subjects in the pages of the ~edag~~ian. M~t of the views expressed were for hberahzmg the female from her traditional roles. We, the Ped Staff will now like to begin a program to give the Peru State coed a chance to c~ange part o~ the roles inflicted upon her since b~rth. ~o we would like to initiate the first Men's ~1berabon Week at Peru State College starting right now. During Men'~ Liberation week the girl asks the guy out and picks up all the expenses, buys the booze, opens the doors, pays the motel bill and could even h~lp him remember the occasi~n by buying him an ERA bracelet (see page 3). The idea behind Men's Liberation Week is not to reverse the roles of the male and female but to let the.female have. a taste of the "male chauvinistic" traits the male is expected by society to perform In order to liberate the woman we must liberate the men. This is a good week for such a thing because there are a few things happening on campus this week. We?nesday afternoon (appropriately) there's the sexist football game between the two dorms at the complex. That evening there's the SGA dance at the gym which begins at 9:30 p.m. and Saturday afternoon there's the Peru-Culver.Stockton football game at the Oak Bowl at 2. It should be interesting to see how successful this w~ek ~oes. Men's Liberation and Women's ~1beration should be practiced everyday but there firs! h~s to be a beginning. This week might be the begmmng. Happy Men's Liberation Week. ·

The swimming pool, UNICEF dance, sidewalks, SCB student survey, Kearney meeting, and the KNECO meetinl! headlined the October 23 SGA meeting. Hob Wernsman reportea ne was told there was no work study to pay for lifeguards for the pool. Wernsman also stated Rex Allgood told him to come to the next city council meeting and the pool would be discussed. Two PSC students Jeff Walther and Chuck Smith had volunteered as life guards if a sponsor could be found . Jim Wolken reported that Rex Allgood was happy to see PSC interest in the sidewalks. Mayor Allgood said a city committee was already on the downtwon

sidewalks and that a formal letter should be sent to the city council. Prizes of $10, $7 .50, and $5 will be given for the best costumes at the UNICEF dance. Dr. Leland Sherwood, John Letts and Gary Hoemann will be the judges. Members of the SGA will be selling tickets. Results are in on the SCB student survey. Of those returned most favor more concerts, are pleased with the ~ay the program is going, would hke more rock music, more big name bands, wouldn't mind an admission charge but not a change in the programs committee constitution to allow it according to Jim Lennerton.

"Buterflies Are Free" a two, act comedy, by L<:anord Gersho, has been chosen to be the next play produced here at Peru State college this year. The play is being directed by both Bob Wernsman and John Billings and supervised by Mrs Mary Ruth Wilson. This particular play was chosen, Wernsman said "because of it's fame, and the capability of the students to do a good job with it." With only a few rehearsals so far and six weeks to go until production on December 3 and 4, Wernsman stated that "things are going suprisingly well." The cast consists of Michael Kelly, Trena· O'Banion, Jullee Tillman and Ray Boeche. · "The cooperation of everyone,'' Wernsman said, "has really impressed me, not only from the students, butthe faculty as well." Aspecial novelty of the play, is the fact that a full kitchen, stove, refrigerator and sillk, will be used as part of the props. This is something never done before her at Peru State college. Price of admission will be $1.25 for adults 1 and 75 cents for students, "Butterfly's Are Free" will be put on in the school auditorium December 4.

Maybe more time should be spent on liberating men. How many men go off and fight wars they don't want to fight? Go off to work at jobs they don't like but feel they must keep in order to support a family? I guess you could say that the issue is not so much liberation as it is individuality.

Peru falls to Chadron By RICK DeKLOTZ

Costly offensive mistakes hampered Peru State in Chadron Saturday (October 20) night as the Bobcats dropped a Nebraska 'College Conference football game to the Eagles, 28-0. Peru allowed five turnovers one lost fumble and four interceptions - while suffering their first conference loss of the season. A 'Cat win would have ashed them at least a tie for the '73 NCC crown since Peru !

would have been the only team unbeaten in conference action. Kearney State, 28-0 losers to Peru October 13, retaliated by defeating previously unbeaten Wayne State 21-0 in the other Saturday loop game. Peru's offense sputtered throughout the Chadron contest, netting 11 yards rushing and 93 yards total offense. Chadron netted 162 yards rushing and totaled 282 yards offensively. Chadron safety Randy Bauer

picked off three 'Cat passes and recovered a fumble to lead the Eagle defense. Bauer picked off four passes in Chadron's six previous games, leading his team in that category. The match featured the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) District 11 two top rushers, Bob Houston of Chadron and Peru's Barry Reed. Neither player had . an outstanding game overland, with Houston carrying 21 times

for 55 yeards and Reed 13 times for 25 yards. Houston, however, caught a 45 yard pass for a TD in the third period to put the Eagles ahead, 14-0. The touchdown pass was nearly intercepted. Peru defensive back Otis Samuel cut in front of the intended receiver, Terry Myers, but tipped the ball into Houston's hands. Penalties figured in the Bobcat ineffective offensive effort. Twice during key drives

Peru was called for illegal use of hands, a 15 yard setback. Officials whistled 21 infractions for the game, 10 against Peru for 88 yards and 11 against Chadron for 75 yards. The Bobcats played without the services of their number two rusher, freshman Gary Rosenbeck. Rosenbeck was sidelined during the Kearney game with a bruised pelvis and possible kidney injury.



Injuries and inexperience· accounts for Cash to assist Dwine Bobkittens' poor season record Peru State's women's intercollegiate volleyball team, plagued with early season injuries and inexperience, held a 37 record before traveling to Chadron for a Saturctay (October 20) triangular meet. Casper (Wyoming) College was the third team entered in matches beginning at 11 a.m. on the western Nebraska court. Five team members had varsity experience at the beginning of the season in late September: Patty Johnson, Humboldt junior; seniors Jane Green, Brock and June Bottcher, Syracuse; and sophomores Gail Harmon and Kim Albin, both from Dawson. Other squad members are: sophomores Darcy__ Lippold and

Aliie Stoltenberg, both from Omaha and freshmen Ardella Klein, Adams, Linda Uher, Milligan, Patty Harpham, Aubur'1, Deb School and Ann Jones, Falls City and Teresa Kingery, Sidney, Iowa. . June Bottcher is presently sidelined with a hand injury sustained in October 15 competition. Several teammates have been temporarily sidelined with minor injuries, but are now available. At the season midway point, the Bobkittens have outscored Doane, Creighton and Tarkio, with losses to Wayne, UN-0, College of St. Mary (Omaha); Kearney, Concordia and UN-L.

"We're having to develop athletes as the season is in progress," reports Miss Mier, "and the team is having to learn to work together, Team play should improve as the season continues," she added. After Saturday matches at Chadron the squad will meet John F. Kennedy (Wahoo) on the PSC court Monday afternoon, October 22. Friday, October 26, Peru's Bobkittens travel to Creighton for a 5 match.

Nebraska poet dies Dr. John G. Neihardt, braska's poet laureate who at the home of a daughter in lumbia, Missouri, November was well known on the Peru te College campus from visits anning 54 years. Dr. Neihardt as 92 years old. His most recent appearance at State was in April, 1971 en students and visitors from theast Nebraska filled the liege auditorium to hear him cite his famous poetry. His first known visit to PSC as to a class in modern poetry 1919 when his friend, the late . Itomer House, was head of English department. Dr. 路 ardt was then writing his ous epic, "The Son of Hugh ass'', two years before nored by an act of the ebraska legislature naming Poet Laureate. During his eate tour" in 1921 he again visited the Peru campus and returned in October of 1965 when repeating the tour. Peru State students enrolled in the Nebraskaland Tour mini. urse last Spring climaxed eir trip with a visit to the poet

in Lincoln, where he made his

home with friends, Mr and l\!rs Julius D. Young. Dr. Neihardt allowed the students to sit with him while he recited some of his work and reminisced about Nebraska pioneers and Indians. A native of Sharpsburg, Illinois, Neihardt moved to Nebraska when he was 10 years old. He was later a student at Wayne Normal School, predecessor to Wayne State College. He lived many years in Bancroft in the northeastern portion of Nebraska, and was editor of the Bancroft Blade. Critics have acclaimed Neihardt as "the American Homer". Writings include "A Cycle of the West" -five epics of the conquest of the west. Much of the information was gleaned from his association and friendship with Oglala Sioux Indians. Other works include poems and epics of experiences of Indians and white men on the plains. He was personally acquainted with braves involved with Custer's last stand at Little Big Horn River.

Anew publication for the Peru State College Admissions Department is about to be "born." The publication, tentatively named 'innerviews,' will be sent to high school counselors and prospective Peru State students, according to Admissions Director, Gary Hoemann. Hoemann moved up to Director of Admissions after serving as Admissions Counselor last year and working in a similar job earlier for the 'Peru Achievement Foundation. According to Hoemann, the路

PSC has enough fuel Classes and activities at PSC will not be reduced this winter because of the national energy crisis, a Peru State official said Wednesday. George Wendel, superintendent of buildings 路 and grounds, said all of the campus buildings are heated by natural gas on a "non-interruptable" basis. Under a ''non-interruptable" contract, PSC will receive its allotment of fuel as long as the gas company has gas in its lines, Wendel said. In 1857 James Miller Williams discovered oil at Oil Springs, Ontario and set up a . small refinery. However his endeavor brought him only a limited amount of recognition since many people felt - some resentfully so - that to find oil in a place named Oil Springs was something almost anyone could have managed.

objective of the monthly publication is "to keep high school guidance counselors and prospective students informed, not only things happening on campus, but also things of general interest, such as financial aids." lnnerviews, to be published by Maverick Media in Syracuse, will be tabloid size similar to the Pedagcigian, and will be edited and mailed to members of the Student Admissions Committee who work with the Peru State Admissions Department.

Bob II After three years of Peru he's still going strong. Bob II, the live Bobcat mascot is very particular about his diet. He likes raw meat especially kidneys and livers. However he doesn' every day. He generally eats .every other day. To keep him healthy he is given vitamins. Bob II was acquired as a. joint effort of the Blue Devils pep club, P Club and SGA in January of 1971. He arrived air' express from Florida and lived in a temporary cage placed in the lower level of Peru's gymnasium until a sturdy permanent home was built on the campus grounds by the maintenance crew with funds furnished by SGA. Untamed and dangerous ,Bob II lives east of the Administration building. He has automatic water and his home is kept warm in the winter by steam heat that runs under it. With all these facilities Bob II should be quite comfortable. The only thing he's missing is a female companion.

Hoemann said he plans a preliminary mailing list of about 1300 persons to receive copies through the summer besides the school year. He added that the number would increase regularly, to correspond with the increase in the number of prospective students. Besides general information concerning current events occuring on the campus, tentative plans call for a regular feature on the subject of financial aids, a monthly interview with a particular faculty member and an indepth study into two-year programs offered by the college.

Swimming starts "An excellent showing" states Swimming Coach Edward J. Craren after 28 prospective swimmers showed up at the Peru State College pool for the first AAU organizational meeting. Most swimmers are returnees from Crarens summer swimming program. Nine are from the Peru area. There were only three representatives from the PSC campus, but Craren feels once the practices are regulated he'll have a larger contingent of college swimmers. Omaha Westside High School will host PSC and other colleges November 22-24 at the Midwest AAU Swimming Meet. All swimmers must become members of the Amatuer Athletic Union (AAU) before they can compete. ~en said application to the AAU will be completed before the first meet. Anyone still interested in joining the swimming team may report at the PSC pool on Tuesday and Thursday nights from six to nine o'clock p.m.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, We would like to take this means to inform students of the rules that must be followed if we are to continue having movies on campus. THERE IS TO BE NO SMOKING FOOD OR DRINK IN THE AUDITORIUM WHILE THESE FILMS ARE SHOWING. We have been informed that if the cigarette burns, spills and litter don't stop, we will no longer be permitted the use of the facilities. Since there is no other suitable place to show the movies, we would no longer be able to present them. The Student Center Board does not make the rules for what can or cannot be done in the buildings. We have to obey them like everyone else. If you find that it is just impossible to make it through the entire movie without a cigarette, then please leave the auditorium while you smoke it! We realize it's only a few students that are violating the rules, but they're ruining it for everyone else .. If you want to continue to have movies on campus, please have enough consideration for everyone by following these few, simple rules. Thank you~ SCB Executive Committee

Club director and Pastor of Peru's St. Clara's Catholic church, said the workshop covers the layman's understanding of ego-statis and personal conduct. Workshop leaders will be Father Jerry Schumaker and Father Bill Rucker of Frernon.t. Both have conducted similar workshops. The session, free and open to the public, will be held in the Student Center "fishbowl" lounge.

Bids needed

The Ancient Greeks probably had a phrase for it, "School" to the Greeks meant one or two teachers, small groups of students, and a method of teaching that encouraged each scholar to proceed according to his own capability. That concept in modern form is being used in at least two courses on the Peru State College campus this semester. It's called "competency based education" and it works like this,: At the beginning of the semester, students in Human Growth and Development and in Foundations of Education were given course outlines and goals. From there it was up to each student to progress as far and as fast as his abilities let him. Just as in the days of Old Greece, teachers are available. They are called "resource persons,'! although students may use outside resources ranging from other students to library materials.

You are not likely to see as in the days of old, students and teachers strolling through olive and citrus groves sipping wine and sharing knowledge. It's illegal. to drink wine on state college campuses, for one thing. But you may see students and teachers at PSC sipping coffee or Cokes, while they share knowledge; and the classroom.• may be under the oaks, if the weather is fair, or in that modern "Parthenon", the Student Center, if the weather is brisk. Or you may find the students in a classroom working individually or in small groups assisted by one or more of their teachers who include Dr. Torn Scherer, dean of education, Evan Vanzant, and Michael Currier. "Competency Base" has been popular with students," Dr. Scherer said. It lets a student work at a speed that is best for him without being held back by slower students," he said.

Dr. Christ still very active here

By MIKE LANCE After 27 years of active college life at Peru, one would think Dr. John Christ has had enough excitement. The 1973 spring retiree of the Peru State College administration department has just began to "excite" his life. When Dr. Christ "cleaned out his desk" at the science building earlier this year, and placed his name on the list of retired college professors, he didn't really leave P. S. C. Once or twice a week you will see his figure ducking in and out of the science building, completing unfinsihed business and helping different students with projects. The former Dean of the School of Natural Sciences, Dr. Christ has just returned from an extensive camping trip to Oregon. The trip included some leisurely camping and fishing within the vaious public campsites located in the northwest United States. While near the west coast, Dr. Christ and his wife visited their oldest son in northern California, and upon their return they A C H O I C E - - - - - - - - - - - - - - visited another son in O'Neil, Nebraska.

for paper Paper shortages around the nation have not gone unnoticed at Peru State College. According to Everett Browning director of Special Services, some difficulties have been encountered in getting enough paper for college use this year. Browning said that last year mimeograph paper, for instance was 89 cents a ream, while this year the same paper is $1.21 a ream from the lowest bidder. Paper companies are reluctant to bid because they have nearly all of the business they can handle at high prices, he said. Paper for the 1973-74 school year was assured the college by the three lowest bidders; Field Paper Company, Carpenter Paper Company and Western Paper Company. Browning said he believes that six months from now paper will have to be bought wherever it can be found without benefit of bids.

It took the Wildcats only two plays to take the lead, with pesky split end Maurie Mintken taking in a 56 yard pass from Benedetto, out-racing Peru defender Henry McCullough t~ the end zone. After an exchange of punts, Peru was backed up on their own three yard line, as Wayne's punter Ott found the coffin corner.

Culver-Stockton bows 62-21 By RICK DeKLOTZ Peru State's football squad rolled up 569 yards total offense in defeating Culver-Stockton of Canton, Missouri, 62-21 Saturday afternoon (November 3). The 62 points represents the most counters. a Bobcat team scored since 1958 when Coach Al Wheeler led Peru in a 62-0 defeat over Dana. Leading the way for the offense was freshman halfback Gary Rosenbeck with 177 yards on 10 carries. Fullback Barry Reed gained 175 yards in. 16 attempts and Kim Tennal 60 yards in 10 tries. Rosenbeck scored twice as did end Ario Wusk who caught passes of 35 and 16 yards for the tallies. Senior quarterback Terry Criger completed six of 10 throws for 121 yards and three touchdowns. In addition to connecting with Wusk, he tossed a 'll yard aerial to Bill Hosack. The 'Cats eventually had things pretty much their own way, but the opening minutes were different. On the second play of the game, Wildcat Jim

Wilson broke through the· left side of his line and raced 87 yards for a score. Bobcat defender Dave McDaniel was unable to make up enough ground after Culver-Stockton running back broke into the secondary. Peru missed an excellent scoring opportunity minutes later when Brent Jones fumbled a 1t0senoeck punt on his own 14. Rod Wartman recovered the ball for PSC and returned it to the six. On the next play Criger fumbled and Culver-Stockton regained possession. After three plays, the Wildcats were forced to punt. Two plays later Rosenbeck went off-tackle for the tying score with eight minutes to play in the first stanza. Peru's second score climaxed a 66 yard-nine play drive with Hosack taking in a 27 yard pass from Criger for the points. A fumble by C-S's Larry Mandrell set up Peru's third score with 5:21 remaining in the second period. Peru moved 49 yards in three plays with Kim

Tennal going to the right side offtackle for the final 25. Gus Krajicek and• Dave McDaniel, who picked off three Culver-Stockton passes, led the Bobcat defenders. The Peru defense stiffened noticeably when the Missourians neared Peru's goal line during the second and third quarters. From their 20., following an interception by McDaniel, Peru marched for another score in seven plays with Wusk outwrestling Culver-Stockton's Brent Jones for the 35 yard end zone pass from Criger. Halftime score showed the Bobcats leading, 28-7. Fumbles opened the second half - two for Peru and one for the Wildcats. A third PSC fumble was recovered by PSC's Reed. Criger took to the air hitting Wus~ over the middle for a score with 9: 32 left in the third quarter. Two minutes later Rosenbeck turned in the day's longest scoring play after a fumble recovery by Bobcat freshman Fred Marisett. A clipping

penalty placed the ball at the Peru lOwhere Rosenbeck took to his right side, was assisted by a Reed block on the Peru 25 and had a clear path down the west sideline to push Peru's total to 41.

Culver-Stockton scored on their first two possessions in the fourth quarter with Doug Wilson passing on nearly every play. He hit Mandrell on a six yard strike and connected with Jim Wilson on a 73 yard screen pass two minutes later following a Bobcat punt. Wendell Henderson put Peru on the scoreboard on the next kickoff with a spectacular 89 yard return in front of the Culver-Stockton bench. Jim Ford, freshman halfback, set up Peru's next touchdown with an interception at the Bobcat 48, returning it six yards. QB Criger initiated a seven play scoring drive then tallied from the two. Reed ran 10 yards for the final TD, climaxing a 96 yard drive, with 1:34 remaininl!.

In this day when one of our primary concerns is ecology, we should be trying to preserve the environment instead of aiding in its destruction. The smoke is polluting the air, the same air we breathe. It is up to us to arrive at

Young introduced the opening idea at a recenf meeting of the Student Governing Association. He plans to meet with city and school officials to arrange c. nor.conflicting schedule. Last year, the pool had remained closed until January. The SGA hopes to have the pool open sometime before the end of November.

"There's still a Jot of details and conflicts to work out in the scheduling," said Young, "But we'll try to get it o~en as soon as possible."

The climbing perch or walking fish is known for its ability to stay out of water for days. The fish has a special breathing organ over its gills which enables it to absorb atmospheric oxygen or take oxygen from water, The World Almanac says. The fish will, however, drown if it is kept under water. The gourami and paradise fish are popular aquarium fish which also have this breathing organ. Copyright © 1973

unc room zs not target-practice, area By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER A lulichtoom serves the purpose of seating and feeding those students enrolled in the food program provided in the student center. · I fail to see the purpose it is beginning to serve as a playground for throwing food.

Has the idea of .erematiop ever occured to you? Has the excitement of having ashes strewn over the seas or over the mountains ever come to your mind? It may be something we have to think about in The future. In the state of Nebraska alone, the rate of cremation in a one year span has· increased 25 per cent. Frank PribQsky, general manager of Forest Lawn Memorial Park said there is a rise in burial costs which probably figures in ,with the number of persons choosing cremation. Forest Lawn handled 14-0 cremation in 1972 compared with 175 so far this year. The rise in cremations in the Midwest is ·climbing at a relatively slower pace than on the nation's ·coasts, "Where they have a · space problem that we don't have as yet," said Pribosky. A wood box for ashes requires . only a 20X20 inch space comoared with a 9x4 foot plot for a

traditional burial. . Also those people who prefer . to be cremated also prefer some ritual scattering of their ashes across the seas or something just as romantic as a pantheistic out look connected with the thought of becoming one with nature rather than being buried as is you have stopped to think about the dollar sign connected with a burial it might be wise to consider the possibilities of cremation. Whether we like to admit it or not some funeral businesses are a rip-off. They extend sympathy and good will and print up holy cards while the dollar signs are dancing in their eyes. I'm not saying this is true of all but many. By all means cremation is not for everyone, Noting that it is prohibited by Catholicism and Orthodox Judaism. Yet it does serve a purpose from a practical point of view and in this day and age that is . something to think about.

Obtain peace with Transcendental Meditation By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER The way for each individual to be peaceful is, of course, through Transcendental Meditation. For the forest to be green, every tree must be green. In order to have world peace every individual must be peaceful. For those who hear the word Transcendental Meditation and say "What?" it is a process of :direct experience rather than one of in six intellectual analysis. Every thought that goes through our heads is an impulse that comes from deep within our psychic minds. TM allows the conscious attention to be drawn automatically to the deepest and most refined level of thinking. It is not as though we will all become divine and wise deep thinkers after your first introduction in TM. This is a misconception. Through personal instruction anyone can learn the technique and begin to enjoy this contact . with the source of thought. It's almost as if we can com· municate with those, thoughts that rarely ever come to the surface but are never the less there just the same. To some TM is like a lecture, boring in its insubstantiality, and irritating in that it· sometimes pretends to be· scientific. Those who feel this · I way also feel that the most 'elementary logic can see that it. isn't the least bit scientific. During your first. T~ period



. the only concrete information you are given is your "mantra " This is a Sanskrit word or one ~r more syllables that will serve as the vehicle for turning the mind inward and to more and more levels of refined thought. · The word itself is meaningless (to those who know nothing of Sanskrit.) This is important because it provides no images of its own but rather helps the meditator clear his mind of thought through the gentle repetition of this sound. Dr. Beanson through his article In Scientific American explains that the early experiments with TM show that' "through ones mental state one can alter his physical state." The practical usefullness however, of such altered states · <if consciousness and their value are yet to be' established. Yet TM is a suitable alternative to getting high or getting drunk. Many use the method of drinking or getting high as a scape goat to relieve tension or repressed emotions. TM can do as much for you as the combination of the other two vices or even more. Every meditation is a good meditation. The only measure of meditation is how it will effect your life. In any case it may offer relief from whatever chaos or unpl easanlness that may be present in your life by displacing you from your emotion. Try it - you may it!

are going up Worried about the rise in prices? We all are. There is a lot more we can do than just shake our heads and say "I know it's bad but what can I do?" Merle Huber, cafeteria manager at PSC has set out to deal with the problem of higher prices. He wants to give us the best food possible while still trying to keep the prices down. One of his main objectives is to cut out waste. From September of '72 to September of •73· the rise in prices of food · products has skyrocketed. Ground Beef has gone from 69c a pound to 99c a pound. This is an increase of 44 per cent. Bacon has gone .from 76c a pound to $l.26. This is a 65 per cent increase. Even macaroni has gone up. Last year it was 20c a box. Now it is 37c a box. This rate of increase is 80 per cent. This gives us some idea of the size of the problem Mr Huber has. There is a registered dietition on the Broughton Food Staff that is qualified tO' design nutritional menus for college cafeteria programs. There is a specific meal plan that Mr Huber follows daily. There are four different meal plans for the four different weeks in the month. Occasionally a monotony breaker is run such as the buffet style dinners. Recently we have had the Mexican Style Dinner. There will be another coming up for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The added luxuries Mr Huber has given us includes a hot Chcicolate machine and a new automatic coffee maker. It takes initiative and knowledge to serve food attractively as well as nutritionally and still maintain a balanced budget. There is a food committee set up by Broughton Food Service that meets to act positively on complaints voiced by the student body. They also welcome new ideas as to how the food service can better serve you. H you have a suggestion .or complaint this board wants to hear it. There is a representative in every dorm on this -committee. Now that we better understand what is going on maybe we can better appreciate it.

Season ends at 5-5

Bobcat mistakes cause 41-0 loss What happens when a football team loses four fwnbles, suffers three interceptions and has a center snap fly over their punter's head? The result for Peru State Saturday night (November 10) was a 41-0 loss to Doane College, NAIC champs, at Crete. Although NCC co-champion Peru's total offense lacked only 80 yards of equalling Doane's, the Tigers took advantage of 'Cat mistakes and wielded a tough defense to run up their score.

Post game examination revealed pulled rib cage ligaments. Freshman Mark Fletcher took the reins, but couldn't guide the 'Cats into the end zonP.. In retrospect, Peru players agree Doane has a good ball club, but believe the PSC' miscues allowed the shutout.

The Bobcats finished the season with a break even mark of 5-5. The 1962 'Cat squad was the most recent to win 5 games, also coached by Jack Mcintire at the helm from 1961-'63. Their season record read 5-2-2. The 1965 Bo beats, coached by Ervin Pitts, were most recent NCC champs, sharing the title with Kearney as this year's champs do. That season's record was 4-5. Mcintire returned to the field in 1972 after the squad was led for three years by Joe Pelisek.

By RANDY WOLF On December 1, the Peru State basketball team will open their season against Concordia with hopes of repeating as Nebraska College Conference champs. However, they will have to do it in a different fashion than last year's team. It will be an entirely different squad from a year ago, when Ananias Montague gunned for a 25.8 points per game average. But returning regulars have improved sufficiently enough to take up the slack, according to Coach Jack Mcintire. Forward Bill Hunter, last year's second high scorer with a 17 .3 average will provide scoring punch as well as rebounding power. 6'3" sophomore Dan Parker should provide some sharp shooting over at the other forward, and may see some action at the post position. Freeman Beville, a 6'4" freshman, who is according to assistant coach Montague, is one of the best on the team, Will also play forward. He has good speed with excellent shooting

Ron Storant, freshman Peru State College cross country runner, qualified for National NAIA competition in Salina, Kansas when placing seventh in the District 11 competition at Seward.

Mcintire stated that they are faster than last year's team, but also said that 'the use of pressure defenses and fast breaks would only be employed if the game situation calls for it. Sophomore Rick Minor and junior Bob Craig are the only other regulars back from last year's v'll'sity ;,quad. Standing 6'9", Craig is ti•e only returning letterman at t .1ter, and has a good chance t start. Minor sported a 5.4 avi;t·age in 19 games last season as a freshmai:; and should be extremely helpfUI at forward. Overall, the 1973-74 'Cats should be better than last year. Their schedule is a tougher one and improvement should come as the season progresses. Due to the nwnber of freshmen on the squad, inexperience and the fact that most of the members have not played with each other before as a team, mistakes can be expected, but it should be another exciting season of Peru State basketball.

Maclntire, whos resignation was effective November 30, was , PSC's athletic director, head football and basketball coach plus track coach. Mcintire, a former mayor of Peru, recently coached the football team to a share. of the Nebraska College Conference title and an overall season record of 5-5. His basketball teams have won seven NCC crowns and appeared at the

national finals tourney in Kansas City four times. Mcintire served as a high sehool coach for ten years at Falls City and one year at Auburn. The Omaha World Herald and Lincoln Journal-Star both honored him as High School Coach of the Year in 1956 for his work at Falls Cjty. Officicps at PSC have reported that no· replacement has yet been found to take over Mcintire's duties.

Peace Corps worker is world traveler By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER Have you ever thought of traveling to Japan, India, Afganistan or Norway? Have you thought of spending sometime in the North Seas on a sailboat? Dennis McDonald has done all this and has been all over. the world. McDonald works for the Peace Corps. He spent most of Tuesday, November 27, at Peru talking and handing out leaflets and handbooks about the Peace Corps to interested students. The qualifications needed to be accepted by the Peace Corps or by one of the branches such as Vista or R.S.V.P. is that you must have a skill gained through education or work experience. The skills applicable to Peru students would be those planning on becoming teachers, social workers, students who have an agricultural background or have grown up on a farm or possibly those who are working toward a business degree. All of these skills are greatly needed to help those a lot less fortunate than ourselves. McDonald said that some of the main problems he encountered when going into a foreign country were the cultural and climate differences, plus the language barriers. McDonald has been working

with the program ·since February of 1971 and he is still not convinced the types of changes America is working for in foreign countries.are the types of changes these ,countries actually need. He feels to impress upon them that the way the Americans do it is the right way and the way it must be done is not a philosophy that will benefit these countries. McDonald said one of the hardest things he had to do to adjust to this sort of life that he had always wanted to lead was to appreciate the way other people live in these underdeveloped countries. "Americans are used to luxury and they are conditioned not to live without it to varying degrees. Food and clothing are the only necessities we have and the only things we need to survive," he said. · By traveling from college to college he has noticed a decreasing · interest in organizations as the Peace Corps. He believes this is due to the end of the draft and a change in the way students are thinking. Peace Corps and organizations like it are still alive, but it will take the interest and concern of . our generation to keep such programs from being snuffed · into the ground and left to. die.

By ROXANNE HILL Tired of hearing about Watergate? Wish they wouldn't interrupt your favorite soap opera or the football game to let the President address his public via television? Kick yourself where it counts. History is being made. A scandal the likes of which we may never see again in this country is developing and .it can be seen Iive on the tube. In its own way, Watergate is better than a soap opera or a game. It has its petty feuds, · deceit, man vs. man, hostilities, and you better believe there will be lots of penalties. Instead of being tired of hearing about this fiasco, you might try getting a little tired of not hearing about so many other things that are going on in this government of "ours." It is a lesson to be learned. The voters of Massachusetts and one quiet man from South Dakota knew what we were in for all the time.

Dogs poisoned around Peru There has been a recent outbreak of "suspected dog poisonings" in the surrounding Peru area. According to Mayor Rex Allgood this is a present concern .... of city officials. Allgood said the statistics stand now that five dogs have been found dead within the last two weeks. Three of the dogs were family pets according to Allgood with the other two being unclaimed or considered strays. Mayor Allgood pointed out that tests are being conducted on the victimized dogs to determine the cause of death, E. W. Peck, veterinarian in Auburn sighted the cause of death might have been strychnine poisioning. So far Dr. Erv Pitts, Dr. Douglas Pearson and Mr Paul Kruse have all reported the death of their dogs. "Killer," the black dog who stayed around the complex was one of the strays victimized.

By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER Although Peru State College has had no trouble with the fuel shortage because of its unlimited supply from Peoples Natural Gas, other college's across the nation have been 'allocated. According to contract Peru's services are .uninteruptable, but because of Peru using unecessary energy it may mean somebody else will have to go without. Peru will receive fuel as long as there is fuel available, but unfortunately this cannot be said for everyone. At Waune State, they are of the most severe .fuel shortages in the Midwest. Thermostats in the town and in the dorms have been turned down to 68 degrees. Night classes have all been moved to only one night, and they are considering moving them all into one building. The street lights in· Wayne have all been shut off and the classroom lighting has been cut in half. The city and college are making a coordinated effort to conserve enough fuel to keep both the college ;md the hi!!h

school open this winter as well as enough heating fuel to keep homes warm. The University of Nebraska at Lincoln is considering extending · Christmas vacation into February due to the shortage of fuel for lighting the buildings. Peru stands aloof from situations such as these seemingly unconcerned with what we could be doing on our campus. There are several measures Peru could take to conserve energy in ehlping to eliminate the energy crisis. From the examples of other colleges we could turn down the room tempatures and turn off the unnecessary lights in front of the complex. Just because Peru is fortunate to have a contract with the fuel company that will supply us as long as they have fuel doesn't mean they will always have fuel. If others who have made uninteruptable contracts with fuel companys like Peru; keep using it with the idea it will always be there, they do so at the expense of others. Soon there might not be fuel for anyone.

.Admissions, housing heads __ _meet to coordinate efforts Admissions and housing directors of the four state colleges meeting on the Peru State campus Tuesday (November 27) discussed ways Kearney, Wayne, Chadron and Peru can coordinate efforts relating to their corresponding offices. This was the first meeting of what is anticipated as becoming a monthly session. Attending were : KearneyWayne Samuelson, admissions, and Dan Duffy, housing; WayneJim Hummell, admissions; Chadron-Don Duncan, housing; and Peru-John Letts, housing and Gary Hoemann; admissions. "State colleges have been cooperating in college night presentations for some time," Hoemann stated, "but new ideas of coordination emerged from the recent meeting at Peru State." Apossibility of publicizing the diversity and educational opportunities offered by the state college svstem through college

nights in Nebraska high schools was presented. Among ideas, to be discussed with the four campus presidents, are an updated slide presentation of offerings and advantages of the state college system, and a plan of high school visitations by areas in proximity to the admissions offices. The latter would !.'educe travel time and duplication of presentations, Heemann explained. Admissions personnel are anxious to contact as ·many high school students as possible, and traveling statewide is time consuming. Coordination of efforts would aid all four colleges, admissions directors agree. Reporting coordination efforts of state college housing directors, John Letts said the group discussed mutual problems and exchanged philosophies. Directors from the two offices on each campus plan a January 23 meeting at Wayne State.

Ever heard of a "Secret Santa"? It's something similar to a secret pen-pal. The girls will draw names at the desk, and do "good deeds" for the person they picked from December 1oth through the 12th. The girls will then find out who their "Secret Santa" has been at the party December 12. Hot chocolate and donuts will be served as refresh. ments. A50 cent gift will also be given to each "Secret Santa." On December 13th, the Davidson Palmer girls will work in the Circle concession stands at the basketball game. Proceeds from that night will go to repair the piano in Neal Dining Hall, so that it can be place<F in the dorm for the girls use. Before going home for Christmas vacation, the dorm will decorate and donate a tree in the lobby and give it to a needy family.

Dr. Siegner leaves for Air Force position Peru faculty member 12 years By JEFF WALTHER

Peru students returned from Christmas vacation to the news that Dr. C. V. Siegner, PSC veteran faculty member, had resigned after 12 years of service. Si.egner came to Peru in September of 1961. He had previously taught at Colorado State University at Fort Collins. His first teaching assignment at Peru was that of head of the Practical Arts Department. During his teaching term, the name of the department has been changed to Applied Arts and Technology. Dr. Siegner's destination will be Norton Air Force Base near

Siegner had applied for the San Bernadino, California. His new duties will be that of head position back in May of 1973.

Working in conjunction with interviewed and chosen over a the University of Southern number of applicants.

Under this type pass up." Dr. Siegner's departure is a of program, after four years of on-the-job training and classes, great loss to Peru: that of a high the Air Force veteran can · caliber educator. "I think Peru transfer his work experience to has a fine future," said Siegner college credit at S.I.U. and last Friday. He went on to say complete his chosen degree. Dr. that "of the four universities in Siegner's job will be to oversee which I've taught, the students the entire program in California of PSC have been the finest I've seen." and to teach classes at Norton

SGA claims sex discrimination Acomplaint was filed with and sanctioned by the SGA on Tuesday, December 11, concerning an alleged violation by Peru State of Title Nine in the 1972 Education Amendment Act. The complaint read as follows; At present there is a rule at Peru State College making it mandatory that girls under the age of 19 years be placed on hours unless they have parental permission or are commuters. No such rule exists

for rnales of the same age at Peru. We feel that this is blatant sex discrimination and ask the SGA to look into the matter and take action to rectify the situation. This statement was moved by Dean Young and seconded by Mr John Letts that women should no longer be required to have parental consent to be "offholl!'~". the motion was carried.~ Mr Lerts is to present the Commission's recommendation

Ubrary installs liberal papers on request from the S.G.A. On the request of the Student Governing Association, the library has installed The Chicago Tribune, The Rolling Stone, and The Village Voice on the news racks for enthusiastic readers. The Lincoln Gazette is in question of being accepted. It would be donated by Barry Landes. Although these papers cannot be labeled as "underground' newspapers,'' they each give a liberal viewpoint of events or issues of controversy. The saying "The grass is always greener on the other side" these newspapers take a look at the other side of things and try to disprove this old cliche. If your interests are wide and varied it would be to your advantage sit downif and one of these topapers you read haven't already. There is also an added attraction ip the library that is seemingly unknown to many students, but is at the disposal of everyone, namely the record collection on the back wall on the west side of the main floor. For those music lovers who ap-

prec1ate classical and jazz arrangements..there are albums, by such artists as Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and others. These albums are not exclusive to jazz, blues, soul, and classical. There are also such up to date releases by groups like the Jefferson Airplane. Knowing they are there at your disposal may send some of you music lovers looking. You certainly can't beat the price.

to the upcoming College Affairs Council for consideration. If it's passed there will no longer be mandatory hours for women but there will be voluntary hours for those who feel they need such disciplinary measures. Mr Letts moved that the proposed By-Laws changes for Morgan Hall be accepted upon the inclusion of regulations concerning "no hours." Dean Young seconded and the motion was carried.

Enrollment unknown

The total number of students will not be known for some time as registration of day and night students has just been. completed according to Kelly Liewer Registrar. Liewer said that registration for day classes ended Friday January 18 and that Night classes had registration Wednesday January 16. Off campus registration is in the act of being completed.

Peru perspectives The comp~acency I observed at the last SGA meeting wa~ overwhelmmg. The Student Representatives lacked the en.thusiasm, the interest, the concern, that one would think paramount to this organization. As Senators representing the student body it was clear to see that some of them seemingly forgot why they were there. Their ineptitude matched their inability to respond to the issues at hand. Likewise the President fell short of my expectations as a governing official at this meeting because of lack of preparedness and failure to exercise authority. He~cefortl). I would like to add that this was only the first meetmg. of the semester for the SGA and it is quite possible that they :vere only getting off to a slow start. In observing past SGA meetmgs I have noted a lot of work being done as service to the student body. Though diiring pas' m=etings and the meeting on Tuesday, .there was a definite lack of cooperation in terms 'of v~lun~eermg .ones time to investigate the facts of particular .s1t~at10ns._ I have also found there was a reluctance to take extra duh~ ass1gne~ to the Student Senators. by the President. According to President Young, "a lot of different activities are are being planned for the near futlire." Students should be interested enough in what this organization is doing for them that they should come to the meetings and see for themselves what is and i~n't being done. The Student Body elected these senators to represent what the students want. · Indeed, it is unfair to condemn SGA on the basis of what I have ob.served at one or two meetings, but the organization itself has responsibilities to live up to and we the students should make ;ure they live up to them in the future. 11

Gas r,ation ing grave error" ,

By JEFF WALTNER Our governmental representatives are now in the· process of enacting legislation to relieve the strain of the nation's dwindling petroleum supply. Gas rationing, the most popular check-stop, is expected to be adopted. This policy I believe, is a grave error. As the situation now stands, there are three ways to limit gas consumption to the American consumer. Taxation and rationing are the two direct governmental means of limiting the sale of fuel. The third method would be to leave the market alone and let demand dictate the price - the Free Enterprise System. Under current legislation, a ,proposed method of limitation would be to double the price of gasoline, through the increase of taxes to the oil producers, to approximately 75 cents per gallon, thus making it unattractive to the buyer. H this policy was adopted, it would be in a league with the present administration's stand on inflation - Phases I through IV. A catastrophic blunder! Our free enterprise system is keyed to the demand of the consumer. What incentive is any producer offered to increase production when he is taxed out of sale with no increase in profit? None! Therefore, production would be greatly hindered, if not halted entirely. ·Under this light, if taxation was . incorporated as a means of . ending the energy crisis, it would eventually enhance the problem and drive its permanent termination further into the future. Gas rationing too, has its obvious pitfalls. It provides no means of encouraging fuel production through economic stimulation. True, equal rationing of rationing cards would make the crisis somewhat easier to bear for a temporary period of time., Granted also. that the rationing system ii easier on the low-income family then increasing taxes and thE open market propositions.

However, the rationing system offers no positive action toward the alleviation of t(le problem. It would establish a ceiling price. putting that price on its coupons:· Here again, as in outright taxation, the difference between the ration price and market price would be equalized_;,, through taxation of the petroleum companies. This is, then, an obvious deterent to increased production, which is the only reasonable solution. By fa_r, there is one solution which offers a majority of advantages with a .minumum of repercussions. The solution lies in the price checks and economic controls of our economic system - the Free Enterprise System. H the price of gasoline were allowed to rise freely with the increasing costs of petroleum production and allow for a reasonable profit margin, this would surely stimulate major increases in oil exploration and production. Then, as the supply of gasoline reached the level of demand, business competition would again drive .prices to a reasonable leveL- · The irlUal price hike would, of course, involve certain personal economic hardships for the American people. It would be only. for. a temporary period of time to the price increases sure to follow with the adoption of rationing 'or taxation. Rationing .and taxation are temporary economic eases for the average economic consumer. They offer no solution and do, in fact, seem prone t~ aggravate the overall situation. It would also seem that the two propositions are tailor-made to camouflage a growing economic crisis, fathered by the Nixon Administration. We should take stock in the American economic system. It has given us the highest standar.d of living and greatest national economy in the history of man. Gas rationing would do great, harm to this intricate system instead of coming to it~ aid, invariably undermining thE American economic way of life




Trying to hold on to some Christmas Spirit is tough with finals threatening nevertheless, Mrs Johnson and the council came through in style with a dorm Christmas 'party. The "bah-hum?uggers" . were qmckly silenced .with a multitude of cookies and refreshments, including Mrs Johnsons' "special" party It was good to see all the residents together for once: Spirits rose to the occasion and the only thing missing was Tiny, Tim exhaulting "God Bless Us Everyone!" Amovie is again on the agenda . this month. To pass the somewhat dreary winter weeks, a ping-pong tournament is planned with trophies to be awarded to the finalists. With the coming of spring, the dorm will throw a big picnic in order to welcome the season and get some of its fresh air. It's apparent that Mrs Johnson and the Clayburn-Matthew Dorm Council are giving it "that old college try" for their fellow residents in the "battle against boredom." 1

Mr. G. new addition to education dept. will initiate new teaching methods . By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER There have been times in each · of our lives when we all have been apprehensive about walking into a particular situation, not knowing what will happen, not knowing if the result of our endeavor will prove to be chaotic or successful, not wanting to get our feet wet, so to speak. I felt the same apprehension when assigned to write an exclusive interview on Mr Dick Gulizia. I had three things to go on. The fact that he was a new faculty member, his name, and that he was visually impaired. Within five minutes of walking through his office door, I felt at ease and was reassured that the interview would prove to be quite interesting. Because of a name like Gulizia most people perfer to call hini Mr G. . From his teaching experience on the high school level at NotreDame, Holy Name, and Duchesne, all archdiocese parochial schools in Omaha Mr G. has now become a part of the higher echelons at Peru and is a welcome addition to the Peru teaching staff. Mr G. complimented Pettfon ?ein~ '.he only stale coiiege that 1s wdlmg to accept visually impaired teachers to their staff. When asked how he liked Peru. Mr G. said he looked forward to the opportunity of teaching on a college level. He has a wife and four children who hope to join him in the near future as soon as they can find a home to accomodate a family of six.

Dr. Daryl Long is currently celebratin~ seven years of college teaching at Peru State College. An energetic chemistry arid math professor, Dr. Long, emphasized the fact he has enjoyed every semester with the students here. Anative Iowan, Long received his preliminary education in the Mason City area. After obtaining his high school diploma he at- . tended the North Iowa Community College, a small junior college, also located in Mason City. Later he enrolled at Iowa . State University where he earned his Bachelors of Science and Masters degrees. While working and studying for his Masters degree, Dr. Long held a teaching assistantship for Iowa State. In 1967, he completed the requirements for securing his Doctorate at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Here, too, he was employed as an instructor while seeking his

degree. In 1966 and 1967 Dr. Long taught a summer workshop at Illinois State University. While ~eaching a workshop at Peru, a former Dean noticed Dr. Long and later contacted him about teach,ing here. "When I was first hired, it was to teach chemistry and math for two years and then make a choice," he said, "but I'm still teaching. both." As the sponsor for the Alpha Mu Omega Math Club, and Lambda Delta Lambda Physical Science Honorary Fraternity, Dr. Long enjoys these fields so much that a preferred choice b~t~een the three would be very difficult. Calculus, chemistry, and physical science are the bonded elements of his teaching workload. Dr. Long and his wife Peggy have Keith 11, Eric 6, and Christy 2 1/2, to be full-time parents for. Although not much of a fisherman himself, Dr. Long always finds time in the stnnmer

to fake his children fishing. "They really get so darn excited I just like watching them,'' he said. When he does find some "spare time" Dr. Long enjoys sailing, flying, traveling and hunting, and especially archery. He was the past president of the Chamber of Commerce and now is the Chairman of the Industrial Development Committee, the president of the Tri-State Missiouri River Development Group, a member of the Nemalla County Industrial Group, and he is advisor for approximately ten students on campus. Through teaching at Peru State College, Dr. Long likes watching students mature from their first college experiences and all the other situations that college produces for students. For all the time Dr. Long puts into the Peru community, Peru State College, and it's students he gets all our thanks and appreciation.

Peru could connect on only 15 of 45 shots for a cool 33.3 percent. Turnovers were an additional factor. With recent additions to the squad, inexperienced 'Cats relinquished the ball 34 times compared to 11 for Tarkio. With a 10-8 lead, the Owls employed a full court press forcing many of the Peru errors. The Bobcats never did completely solve the Tarkio press, accounting for their inability to move to shooting range. High scoring and rebounding honors went to Tarkio's 6-6 senior forward Jim Martin who tallied 22 points and grabbed 14 from the board. Coach Schnaser calls Martin probably .the best player he has seen in samll college basketball.

Guy Lammie and Henry McCullough added six points and Dave Green one field goal to complete Peru scoring. Despite the outcome, Coach Schnaser believes he has players with ample desire to play well.

tremely tough" and one that featured exceptional competition. Kansas State's Roger Fisher was winner of the 118-pound division and for the second straight year was voted the tournament's outstanding wrestler. A tri-dual match scheduled January 15 on the Peru mats against John F. Kennedy (Wahoo) and Haskell Junior College, Lawrence, Kansas was cancelled. Both schools extended Christmas vacations because of the energy crisis.

Conference all-star Barry Reed big factor of co-champ Bobcats By JEFF WALTHER Snow fills the Oak Bowl now. The co-champs of the seventh district of the N.A.I.A. (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics), the '73 Bobcats, have fought hard there for the honor. The victory cheers have 3oftened now to echoed memories. It's time to honor those who bled, sweated, and cried for victory for PSC. It was a team effort that made Peru Number ·1; it's always that way with championship teams. ,But there's one athlete who's taking the "lion's share" of 'the credit, and rightly so. He's Barry Reed, the 6' 4", 240 lb. fullback that put it together and brought us closer to victory with every bonecrushing run. When I arrived at Peru, I notice that whenever the subject of PSC football poppea up, Reed was usually mentioned first. He's a "meat ano gravy" player. That is, he's not an overnight superstar - here today, gone tomorrow. He's a consistent and dependable ground-gainer.

TEEP exam On March 6 P.S.C. students seeking endorsement as a teacher must take the TEEP test on March 6 in order to get a teaching certificate. All seniors in their last semester of studies in the professional education curriculum are also required to take the test. No fee is required. The test is an evaluation instrument of P.S.C.'s various teaching majors and the professional education curriculum in general. Individual results only effect a student's degree program in relation to the appropriate teaching certificate. Registrar Kelly Liewer will give the test in room 300 of the Education building from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with time. for a lunch break.

Faculty would increase by four, if Exon's proposal is approved "More faculty" is how Dr . Douglas Pearson explained the immediate change that would be witnessed on the Peru State campus if approval is given to the recent proposal made by governor Exon for a new funding program for the state college system in Nebraska . The proposal was revealed in a four point plan at a press conference at the state capitol January 11. Department of Administrative Services staff devised and presented the plan at the conference. No dollar figure was tagged to the proposal, but there were indications that Exon would reveal it during his budget request. The plan, which Pearson described as "a sound concept," would be applied to current budget requests and enrollment data. The proposed formula is designed to have the colleges assess major programs, courses and departments' for effective planning. The first ( and major point concerning students in the proposal) is faculty staffing. The staffing is currently based on student credit hours but would be altered to depend on teacher load, kind of class and time spent on research and improvement under the newest .Proposed. Under the current procedure used to determine faculty increases or decreases, changes for the next school year would call for a total of 50.53 reduc-

tions. Kearney would lose the most, 28.86 and Peru the least, 1.69 (after suffering cuts under the program last year). Wayne and Chadron would lose 10.74 and 9.24 positions respectively. The governor's proposal, however, would increase the positions at PSC by 4.45 and increase the number at Wayne by 6.90. Kearney would still lose staff, but the number would drop to 11.14 and the Chadron staff would be reduced by .88. The overall plan would allow for a drop of just .67 throughout the system. · Pearson stressed that the 4. 45 increase for Peru, should the plan be approved, would be used · strictly for faculty positions, not administrative staff. Also included in the Exon proposal would be the allowance of 1,208 tuition remissions for the system and a total of 112 for Peru. It was pointed out that this second point of the plan would not result in a loss of tuition because these tuition remissions would simply be filling desks that are currently empty and would probably affect students that would not normally have gone to college. Another plus for the colleges through the increased tuition remission policy would be an anticipated increase in dormitory rental. The third point is an economy scale curve which recognizes that there are certain overhead

expenditures in any institutjon, regardless of size. The cost per student for ·overhead expenses increases as the enrollment decreases. To combat this, Peru would be . allowed 1. 76 percent more per student than Kearney. Kearney is considered 1.0 on the curve, which means that their enrollment enables them to realize maximum economies in operations. The fourth and final point of the plan is said to "stabilize the instructional services program." In tune with this, the dollar amount would not be changed for instructional services, general instructional operations and related instructional services, but proportion of cash in the programs would change from the current formula. In an earlier statement to the PSC News Bureau, Pearson said that "the impact would be that Peru State would become more specialized than now, with some programs becoming support areas. There would have to be more 'give and take' internally, but overall we could become a stronger institution." Pearson added to that recently by stating that his immediate reaction was that "we at Peru State College are grateful to Governor Exon for his concern and willingness to be open and make necessary changes. Beyond that, we haven't seen any dollar impact or any other specifics on the program."

'Exon's plan not designed to save jobs' By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER In · answer to Doane's President Dr. Philip Heckman statement that the Governors proposal was to protect the jobs of fifty people, Dr. Pearson replied with "the Governors plan is not designed to save the jobs of fifty people but is designed to help the state colleges in their missions." "If you are going to have an educational institution you should have an adequate faculty to run it." Dr. Heckman also remarked that beefing up the enrollment at the state colleges by increasing the number of scholarships would be equal to "making work" for the fifty teachers. "In that case, neither the students nor the taxpayers would be well served," Heckman added. , Some of the officials from Nebraska private colleges are less than enthusiastic about

Governor Exons' save-the-statecolleges plan. Exon's proposal would change the states financing formula for the four state colleges, save the jobs of fifty teachers on the four campuses and combat declining enrollment by granting more scholarships to needy students. The Governors' dollar request for the schools will be presented to the legislature within the next few weeks. According to Dr. Pearson, Peru is not anticipating apy faculty or departmental cuts· at all within the next year or two. Particularly in regard to inadequate financial aid Exons' plan will give Peru enough help to bolster some of their programs. Dr. Pearson agreed that higher tuition provides an economic barrier to some students, Nebraskan schools have been crying for a coor-

dination of higher educational resources and up to this point they haven't received any. Any state program of student assistance whether it be private or public should enable students to attend the college of · their choice. Asked if he though limiting courses at the state colleges 1s a factor for decling enrollment Pearson said "You tell me you are closer to the situation than l am." He also commented that the enrollment figures would not be out for another month yet and as soon as the statistics are out a follow up study will start immediately. "Dealing on a frontal assult we hope to find out just what the problem is and then deal with it but at the moment I would hate to speculate on the ca use of decreasing enrollment or the reason behind why CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

The freshmen and the senior class officers have both initiated action in the form of interest in their positions. The fault lies not in what they haven't done but what they have tried to accomplish to no avail. Lack of concern on the part of the student body has cut short their progress. A random survey was conducted from within the Bob Inn, the Administration building, the fine arts building, and the cafeteria. The sampling of this survey includes students living on campus and commuters. The purpose of this survey was to determine through a random survey how many students knew the name of their class president. The results were less than astounding. Of those sampled out of the freshmen class only half of the students knew ·who

their class president was. The remaining half were seemingly unaware that class officers existed. Out of the sophomore class 69 per cent of the students didn't know. 55 per cent of the juniors were unaware of who their president was and out of the 45 per cent that did know few were aware of the fact that he had transferred. Only 45 per cent of the seniors didn't know the name of their class president.

By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER Do you ever think about religion? After coming to coll~ge and getting away from the principles and the basic concepts of religion that your parents drilled into you as a child, do you feel yourself beginning to develop your own philosophy of what religion is and what it is sup" posed to do for you? If perhaps you are still searching within yourself, and you would like a religion or some basic faith to use as a guideline for your life, but you do not believe in the ritual of going to church every Sunday, or do not like the superficiality of a clergy maybe the Bahai faith possibly is the answer. The Bahai religion was founded 110 years ago by BClha'u 'llah who proclaimed himself a prophet in the year 1863. Bahai is a world religion that stresses above all unity of all mankind. Trina, O'Banion, Wayne Schulenberg and Dave Clark are all members of the Bahai faith. They have been recognized as an organization by the Student Governing Association. This p_ermits them to hold meetings

basis, and spread their beliefs throughout PSC. Their sponsor is Mr Currier who has knowledge of the faith and keeps abreast of what is going on. The Bahai faith is based on ten .certain principles. 1. No predjudices. 2. Harmony between science and religion. Baha'u'llah, the pnophet founder sights this as an ·· example: "A.bird in order to fly must have two wings - one being science the other being religion - without one the other is useless." 3. There must be complete equality between the sexes. 4. Main belief in one God. 5. Compulsory education for all. 6. A firm belief in more than one prophet. 7. No church and no clergy. 8. A universal language for all where everyone would speak:the same tongue. 9. Constant search .for truth. 10. Strong disapproval of such ' vices as drugs, drinking and smoking. This is for the reason if any one of these gets you down physically it will also harmi you mentally which in turn will effect you spiritually. Therefore you will not be as competent spiritually.

Gas shortage could affect state tour "The gas shortage could affect the plans for repeating our Nebriiskaland Tour ~:ourse in the 1974 summer session," ·said Dr. George Schottenhamel, History and social sciences pr0fessor at PSC.

The Nebraskaland Tour is a three-credit course offered. by the social science and English departments. The course presents the history of Nebraska in "three dimensions." Students on the tour can learn of the Nebraskaland heritage where it happened. The course encompasses the full history of Nebraska; from .the study of her geological birth (Agate Fossil Beds), to the white

man's push westward (Forts Robinson, and Niobrara, the Freeman Homestead), up to today. The six-day trip is preceeded by a two-day orientation on the sights the class is to see. The class, together with Dr. and Ms. Schottenhamel, left on May 17 in two of the college station wagons. The tour route made a wide circle across the state. Heading west, the group visited' the Willa · Cather Museum, Pioneer Village, the Freeman Homestead, the Stullr Museum, , Buffalo Bill's Scouts Rest Ranch, the famous landmarks Chimney and Jailhouse Rocks, Toadstool .State Park, Halsey

State Forest and the Marie Sandoz Museum. At Gordon, Nebraska, the group viewed a series of paintings done by Charlie Standing Soldier, a famous artist known for his humorous and sarcastic portrayals of the white man's treatment of the American Indian. Schottenhammel stated that the highlight of the trip was a seminar with the late Dr. Niedhardt in Lincoln. At that time, Niedhardt was poet laureate for Nebraska. The conference turned out to be the last public appearance Niedhardt made before his death late last year.

Colds and sniffles seem to spring from nowhere when warm spells like this one appear, and though it is too early to tell for sure, it is likely that the combination of a sudden temperature change, too light clothing and good natured splatterings of melting snow may provide our college nurse with some extra business in the near future.

and no clergy is if your searching for yourself, and for truth you can't have somebody else telling you what to believe in. They have Houses of Worship, but there are less than ten of them in the world today and only one in the U.S. There is a firm belief in more than one prophet. They believe in Buddha, Mohammed, Jesus Owist, Moses and Balla'u'llah. Each prophet is equal to the one before and after him. Their belief is that God sent a prophet whenever th.e world was in a state of turmoil and anxiety. Each prophet brought a message. He taught the message of the prophet before him but added more to it so the_ world would have a greater understanding of what was going on. As an example: Moses said "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth," Jesus came after him and said "lilve your neighbor as yourself." Baha 'u'llah came after him and said "Love your ,;nej~bor better than yourself." To those of you who have decided that other religions do not give you the reinforcement you need,the Bahai faith may be a suitable alternative to the institutionalized religion we are used to.

' Dr. Brengelmann believes "Our investigation has discovered that most smokers who want to kick the habit go

about it the wrong way, good resolutions are not longlasting." Some of their tips are: 1. Buy one pack of cigarettes at a time. 2. Never ask for a cigarette; leave your matches or lighter at home. 3. After each pack, change your brand. 4. Empty the ashtray after each cigarette. 5. Stub out a cigarette after the first draw, then relight it, it spoils the taste. 6. Never sit in your favorite chair to smoke; sit somewhere uncomfortable.





Wernsman first journalism student to complete internship program By JEFF WALTHER Senior Bob Wernsman completed his journalism internship with the Peru Challenge with the end of the fall semester. He is the first student at Peru to take part in such a program. The internship is a valuable part of the journalism program at PSC. After approximately six seip.esters of classroom work, the student then goes to work on a part-time basis for one of the area newspapers. The stUdent in the program can get up to 4 credit hours depending on the number of hours he spends working for two newspapers, The Syracuse Journal-Democrat and The Peru Challenge. Bob started his internship at the Syracuse paper in the spring semester of 1973. He was at first very nervous in his interviews because he had a definite "doubt of his abilities." However, Wernsman said that he loosened up as his experience grew and jt

became easier to work. Wernsman remembers a feature story which he did while working for _the "Democrat" about a 1-room-schoolhouse with only a single student. "The teacher and schoolboard refused to talk to me," Wernsman said. "It.wasn't.until later that I found out why." "It seems that the teacher was putting in a half day teaching, and as it ended up was recieving more of a salary than she did the previous year with more students and a longer working day." The school was closed the following year after the article appeared in the paper. Bob was working between 1620 hours a week at the paper, (2 days a week), and carrying a full class schedule. Mixing that with commuting to Syracuse and all over for interviews and it doesn't leave much time for extracurricular activities. In the Fall semester of '73-'74,

Wernsman worked for J. L. Schmidt, Editor of the Peru Challenge. "I was very fortunate to work for the Challenge when I did,'' says Wernsman. "At that time, Schmidt had just become Editor of the Challenge and gave me a lot of 'healthy criticism' and help with my writing." "The first thing I learned while working for the Challenge was accuracy." He had learned it the hard way. "My first regular assignment was to report the weekly court records," said Bob. "I simply reported who paid the fine instead of who was found guilty. I got into a lot of trouble with an irate mother who had paid her son's fine for speeding." -Bob started out working for the Challenge on a part-time basis,.but later began to work a full 40 hotirs a week. A major difficulty that Bob has run into in his journalism collegiate carreer, has been

people who come to him with information but than add the phrase, "Don't quote me on that." Using the term "informed spurces" in his stories gets kind of old. Being editor of the Peru Pedagogian in the Fall semester of '72-'73 was a "valuable experience," Bob said. "But it taught me one important lesson - "you can't really rely on anybody." Wernsman organized his staff at the end of the preceeding semester to get right down to business when the semester started. "My assistant editor and sports editor did not return to Peru and things were rally messed up," commented Wernsman. Wernsman is a native of Prague, Nebraska, where he first got a taste of journalism in his high school. He was a typist for the .school newspaper, a single page ditto sheet called "Panther Tracks." Bob came to Peru as a fresh-

At Chadron, neither team shot particularly well <Peru-ao.z per cent, Chadron-41.9 per cent). The Bobcats had trouble against Chadron's zone defense. Schnaser had little time to install his ta'ctics against various zone defenses before the contest. The Peruvians trailed by as much as 12 points during the second half, but a strong comeback put them into the lead with about three minutes to play. Turnovers and crucial shot misses plagued the 'Cats in the final minutes.

Kung Fu defense takes years to perfect By MICHAEL KELLY Every Thursday night, millions of fans turn on A.B.C. to watch David Carradine as Caine on "Kung Fu." The main factor which has brought the series such popularity is Caine's fighting technique. Caine is a Shoalin priest, and a master of the martial art-of Kung Fu. The fighting stunts perofrmed are entertaining, yet many fans are skeptical. Kung l'.u, an off-spring of karate, is an ancient Chinese form of self-defense and physical discipline. It was originaily developed as a weaponless form of defense, since religious men were for-

bidden to carry weapons of any king. Through the centuries, the art of karate and kung fu were kept secrets. However, in the past ten years, Oriental forms of selfdefense have gained thousands of enthusiasts in the U.S. Karate and kung fu temples sprang up across the nation many promising to make you a devastating fighter in thirty days. The truth is that one simply does not master Kung fu in thirty days. Years of training and discipline are required before one could truthfully judge himself as a "master." The vast monopoy of karate schools do not always let this little

"Oriental secret" be known. The point is that a master of karate or kung fu could easily perform the same stunts shown on "Kung Fu." But it literally takes years to perfect your form so that you can actually defend against twelve attackers as in "Billy Jack." The stunts performed on "Kung Fu" are possible, they are, however, the feats of a master.

By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER "The push for alcohol on campus is now underway," said President Dean Young at their las.t Tuesday meeting. Alcohol was the main topic of discussion. Posters have been circulated around campus urging students to write their senators on their views on alcohol on campus. The importance of this issue and the importance of making the students views known to the senators cannot be emphasized enough said Young. LB 783 will be put before the legislature Februarv 9th. The corresponding secretary has sent out personalized letters .to each of the 49 senators condoning LB 748 and sighting its advantages over its disadvantages. AGcording to Young its main advantages consist of: a majority of the students want alcohol on campus, a majoriti of the students are of legal age and should be treated as adults having the same privileges and freedoms that adults have, by lifting the restrictions on the dorms a more favorable environment will prevail and more students would be apt to remain living on campus. With the exiting of more students to offcampus housing, bond revenue is becoming harder and harder to pay because the buildings are paid off from. the room rent that students pay. More students

firmed the point that a majority of the students on each campus WE're in favor of this bill.. Peru President Dr. Douglas Pearson was. scheduled to attend the SGA meeting and explain Governor J. J. Exon's new "save - the - state · college" plan, but cancelled because he had a touch of the flu and was entertaining. Young informed the body of the SGA that Bob Wernsman has resigned. The reasons for his resignation being his lack of time to devote to the SGA. Bob will retain his pGsition as a representative on the Student Conduct Committee. Fritz Stehlik reported that at the joint meetiqg of Academic Affairs and College Affairs a proposal by Dr. Pearson to reorganize the administration by adding an academic vicepresident was approved and sent to the Board of Trustees for their approval. The academic· vicepresident would take over the responsibilities presently handled by the two deans. President Young reported that at the last College Affairs

meeting the sex discrimination complaint was presented and a motion was made and approved to drop all mandatory hours- for women. . Senator Roland Barrett proposed to ask the college department to cut overhanging caused by the last maintenance ice-storm. Barrett believed the studeuts' safety was threatened! the students' safety was threatened. A request was made from· the Chadron State College Student Senate that Peru circulate a petition to all dorm residents that states they should decide what type of living arrangements theywould like to have. The purpose of this petition is to give the students a choice of whether they would like to live in a dorm with no visitation, limited visitation, 24 hour visitation, or coed dorms. Chadron State College will correlate the information and if favorable present the proposal to the Board of Trustees. The request was accepted and the research committee will circulate the petition. Due to resignations there is presently no student representatives on the Traffic Committee. President Young requested that anyone interested in filling these two positions should contact him.

By JEFF WALTHER Alcoholic beverages may soon oe allowed on campus at PSC and the rest of the Nebraska State Colleges. A bill calling for the legalization of alcohol on the campuses was first read to the Nebraska Unicameral earlier this month. The drafting of the bill is a result of work done by many college groups on Nebraska campuses. State Senator John Cavenaugh, from Omaha, ·and <Senator Steve Fowler, from Lincoln, are the formal drafters of the bill.

The movement to legalize alcohol on Nebraska campuses formally began at Creighton University in Omaha. R J. Lev. vice-president of student affai~s at Creighton, heads the statewide campaign. Peru State students showed an over-whelming majority of 91 per cent in favor of legalizing the

beverage on school property in a recent poll conducted by the Student Governing Association. It was on the basis of this poll that the SGA plans to support the bill by a student letter-writing campaign to inform the state senators of the feelings, pro and con, of the students at Peru. Roland Barrett and Gary Bowman are the Co-Chairman of the SGA Committee to investigate the bill, its campaign and its progress in the Senate. Working with Dean Young, SGA President, the committee has posted the addresses of the state senators on campus. Young plans to go to the capitol to lobby in support of the bill when the bill is debated on February 9 in Lincoln. He plans to point out lo the senators the opinions and rights of the students he will represent and the economic advantages of the bill's passing.




SCB preparing for spring week activitie

EDITORIAL Legislative Bill 783 must be passed during the present law making session. This is the second time around for the alcohol on -campus hill which was introduced to the Legislature, this year by State Senators John Cavanaugh and_ Ste~e Fowl~r. ~f this bill is defeated as it was in the 1972 Legislative sess10n 1t may not be presented again for some time. If passed, LB783, will permit the sale of alcohol _on the campus of any college or university in the state and will also enable students of legal age to possess and consilme alcohol in their dormitory rooms. So this bill does not concern just the students living in the resident halls. Students interested in seeing this bill passed should: - Attend the hearings on the bill and be able to state reasons why they support it. . . - Student groups, including the four dorm1tones on campus, should draft resolutions in support of LB 783, sending copies to the state senators. - Write your state senator and ask him to vote in favor of LB783. Without favorable letters from students and parents the bill will not pass. The eight cent stamp could be the best investment you've ever made. , In order for LB783 to reach Governor Exon s desk strong support for it must be shown. Show your support for it today, we must act now! Frank D' Addesa Managing Editor

Should the original recipient terminate their education at the college, an alternate will be awarded the rema.ining value of the scholarship. This is the third year for the award. Thirty-seven students on this scholarship will graduate next year according .to Donald Miller, Financial Aids Director ..

One act play presented The one act play, "I'm Herbert" directed by Mrs Mar1 Ruth Wilson was presented last Tuesday nite for Peru President Dr. Douglas Pearson and a group of prominent businessmen from Auburn. Steve Sharp, a freshmen, played Herbert and Mary Weber, a senior played his wife Muriel. Preceding the twenty minute

play the stage band performed, "Brazilian Fantasy," and an original composition arranged by Roland Barrett. The Swing Choir added an,. extra touch to the evening with "One Tin Soldier." Every second Tuesday Peru's various Arts and Talents will be displayed at the college auditorium.

Ms. Sue Underwood, academic coordinator of the newly developed tutoring program LEAP, emphasizes the personalization involved in giving free instruction to students who realize they need help in a particular course. This tutoring program offers assistance in English, math, and science and its primary purpose is to take the student from "I can't," to "I did." The flexible hours of the program enable a student to fit a tutoring session easily into their

schedule. Realistic goals enable a student to advance at his own pace. Evening seminars will be announced in the three subject areas. These seminars will deal primarily with problem solvin5 and· general cramming. Ms Underwood's philosophy behind the LEAP program is "All people can learn, all people can excel, all facets of learning can be an exciting experience. LEAP believes if there is a weakness in not understanding a certain mathamatical concept,

The NCC victory. for Peru snapped a dozen game losing streak dating back to December 1 when the Bobcats defeated Concordia 77-67 in the season opener. PSC Coach Roger Schnaser, in winning his first game as a collegiate mentor, watched his 'Cats battle back during second half play after losing grips on a ten point lead in the first 20 minutes of action. Schnaser whose previous experience includes high school and as~:stant collegiate coaching in Minnesota, took command of the squad at semester break. Peru's starting guards, Ron Winston and Henry McCullough both encountered foul trouble in the first half and were on the bench when Chadron came from 10 points down to take a 35-33 lead at half time. Chadron's Don Daugherty poured all of his 17 points through the nets during the first half to spark the Eagles. He picked up his foiirth foul before intermission and saw limited action the second half. Bill Hunter earned game scoring and rebounding honors with 26 points and 14 rebounds. Many of his rebounds came during the decisive second half from the offensive boards with Hunte-: tipping them in for important points. Schnaser complimented Hunter saying, "He played an outstanding game." Along with Hunter, all of Peru's starters reached double figures with Winston hitting 16, Bob Craig-12, and 10 each for Freeman Beville and McCullough. Of the victory, Schnaser commented, "We needed ;it badly. It was worth two weeks of practice. The kids worked hard and although we still have spot~ that need to be ironed out, the effort was great."

Food complaints being looked into "You are going to see some action. Your voices have been heard," were Mr Letts' words commenting on the food complaints that have been pouring in from all sides . Action has been taken on the part of the students for the last . month. Now the administration is stepping in .to take over the responsibility of rectifying the current "food complaint" situation., President Fritz Stehlik reported at the last SCB meeting that Dr. Douglas W. Pearson is in the process• of setting up a date with Broughton Food Service to work directly with them. Complaints have been taken to SCB, SGA, Student Affairs, and Academic Affairs. It is now up to Dr. Pearson to look into these matters.

Astudent survey conducted by Sherry Gregg consisting of complaints and comments on the food service provided in the cafeteria will be broadcasted on KPSC in the near future. Miss Gregg has also set up a tape interview with Mr Merle Huber, Manager of Broughton Food Service which is also to be broadcasted on KPSC. Ideas were pass~d around concerning the theme for Spring Week. Several new suggestions were brought up and it was voted that four of the slogans be taken to a meeting with Fritz Stehlik and Dr. Pearson. The final decision of what theme will be used will be decided at their next meeting. The proposed Spring Week activities are still in the planning stages. Jim Lennerton has

confirmed "Jasmine" for the February 14 dance. It was voted upon at SCB to send Jim Lennerton to the Association of College Union's executive regional meeting. A tentative date was being set up for the student vs faculty basketball game. The male members of SCB have Fhallenged the faculty members to a duel basketball game. The date, time, and place of this event are still indefinite. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss unity between the four regions; Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri. The reason behind sending Lennerton to this meeting is that he is an executive council member. They will also discuss plans for a regional convention to be held next fall at Kearney.

New program to improve speaker By TE.RRIE FUNKHOUSER SPEAKEASY is a newly devised program under the direction of Ms. Sue Underwood and Dr. Gulizea. Its purpose is to allevia.te some of the. fears and diminish apprehension that some students have when it comes to publicly addressing · groups. It is open for anyone and it is a free service. Meetings will be held each Tuesday starting February 12 from 12: 00 to 1: 00 p.m. in the West Dining room lounge in the student center. At such a get-together over lunch, each member will give a speech a week on the topic of their choice. Dr. Gulizea, Ms. Underwood and at times Mrs

Wilson will informally provide instructional materials. After each speech constructive critisim will be given on a workshop format. The motto of the program is Confucious say "Th'ose who say it can't be done should not interfere with those who are doing it." .The program hopes to serve as a successful means in relating to others. It will give the student the power to inspire others, persuade them and even disagree on pretenses. SPEAKEASY will provide the student with needed confidence to address groups with ease.

Educators day on Saturday PERU, NE ~ Educators in over 200 area public and parochial schools plus an additional · 200 individuals associated with education have been invited to attend Peru State College's 22nd annual Educators' Day Saturday, February 16. Activities designed to acquaint guests with Nebraska's first college wili begin with coffee and registration at 2 p.m. in the student center. PSC President, Dr. Douglas Pearson, will welcome educators from Nebraska, Iowa. Kansas and Misso.uri at 2:30 Campus facilities will be open, many with departmental

An innovation on this year's program will be an information and question session from 3: 30 to 5:00 including sections on admissions, financial aid, student life, athletics and academics. At 5: 30, educators will be guests of the College for dinner at lhe ~ludenl center, followed by the Peru State vs Bellevue College basketball game at 7: 30 in the gymnasium.

SPEAKEASY will bring about an awareness of how to speak how others speak, will hopefully provide the keys to ·open .a students creative storehouse and give the student encouragement needed to improve. Through this program Gulizea and Underwood hope to teach artful ways of communicating. Through active participation on the part of those students involved stimulation will fire other aspects of each others lives. Gulizea and Underwood both stress yesses instead of no's. For further information contact Dr. Gulizea or Ms. Underwood through Box 158 Campus Mail.

World religions course offered Provided ten students are interested, another course will be added to the PSC curriculum. The proposed course is Philosophy 301, "Philosophy And History Of World Rrli!!ions." Tl:c instructor would be Father Mel Rempe. This three hour course formerly dealt with the world's most popular religious: Christianity, Judaism Islam, Hinduism. Shintoism. etc. The first meeting will be held Tuesday, February 12, at 3:50 p.m. in Fine Arts 105. The class will meet then whether or not the mandatory ten students are enrolled. For additional information interested students should contact Dr. Clyde Barrett, room 106A, Fine Arts Building.



Appropriations bill passed For the first time in four years we have an appropriations bill passed and signed by congress according to Donald Miller, Financial Aids Director. According to Miller, the past three years congress. passed a resolution to continue the programs at the previous level. Miller said he would like to encourage students to file for the appropriate financial aids for next year. Filing should be done as soon as the students or their· parents file their '73 income tax. Deadline for the four federallyfunded programs is April 15.


The four programs are the National Defense Student Loan · College Work-Study Program, Suppleme~tal Education Opportunities Grant, and the Basic Education Opportunities Grant. · BEOG appropriation was $121 million for '73-'74 academic year. For the '74-'75 academic year' $475 million has been appropriated. President Nixon has aksed for $1.3 billion for the funds. If the $1.3 billion is okayed, there is a possibility the progr:im will be opened to all undergraduate students.

Stud-ents don't approve of pass · fail marking system By SUSAN SOLE The pass-fail method of grading is used commonly in the early grades of a child's education. Then, as he travels into adulthood, grades become prevalent on the teportcard.

Students skip classes· for various reason By MICHAEL KELLY Nearly all college students class at least once, some skip more often. Each has his own excuse. There are as many different excuses as there are absences. Yet, some students regularly skip class and ~ee nothing wrong with it. Their instructors mark each absence and wonder why. sk~p

Everyone has heard the story about the student who had. one too many at the local pub and awoke with a dreadful Hangover: Whereupon, he (she) decided to ignore that 8:00 a.m. class and sleep it off instead. Some reasons are much more serious. Many students will skip class if they feel that they are not learning anything. If the class is boring like many of the general education requirements, the .average student may feel that it just isp.'t worth it.

This reporter interviewed several students who regularly skip classes. The following are some of the more ,frequent responses. The names of the 'students and instructors have been deleted for the academic sake of both. A male sophomore rema,rked "I don' need ....his .... class. I mean I'm here for my degree. There's absolutely nothing I want out of that except the credit." Another student. replied "As long as I pass the tests, which I do what's the difference?".. A temale freshman answered "You can only take so much!!" Despite efforts on the part of the academic administrators to stop the increasing number of student absences, it seems that students will attend class regularly only if they feel the desire to learn. To paraphrase an old saying "You can lead a student to college but you can't

force him lo attend a class he ab,nlutely ahhores.'' . ,no th er big reason for the numerous skips-seems to stem from the fact that some students feel that their instructor doesn't know his subject. "I'm tired of all the bee-essing. If the teacher doesn't know what he's talking about, why don't.he admit it, we do on tests" was the way one ·student put it. There are many other reasons or excuses if you will, one point seems to stand out. -Absences hurt both the student and faculty member. The student wastes his · money, the instructor wastes his time. But if faculty members continue to use class attendanceas a club, which they may illegally hold over the students head like the proverbial sword of Damacles, no good will come of it. For few students allow themselves to be so intimidated. Or as one student said "When it gets to the point of nausea, you might as well skip class."

Don (Jersey) Longo looks on as Dennis ·Glaab tries to defeat the pinball machine.

Peru State's gymnasium shook to some solid, heavy sounds last Tuesday evening ,as "Texas" and "The Downing Brothers" swung into action with heavy rock, boogie, jazz and blues. "The Downing Brothers" came on first to heat up the audience with a bluesy version of - get this - "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." People laughed a little w~en_ the title was announced, but when Steve Sargentti came in soft and sweet on the harmonica_, Ed Rudman's guitar doing a blues harmony, the people Settled down and SOrt of went "yeah." _Second on the list was "This Time Around" by Randy Harrison .. A well done number with the brothers throwing in some old-fashioned "scatsinging", this piece was really moving .along with Sargentti wailing and rocking on the mouth organ, Rudman pushing a solid boogie beat on the guitar, .with the tune to the old "Rock Around The Clock" thrown in on an instrumental run between verses - fine boggie ! During "Burger King Blues" J.W. Everitt, handling the sound equipment for the show; asked me "Are you impressed?" Impressed? Wow!!! the com; bination of instruments in that number put out an "outer space" sound that captured the .mind, with a vocal wailing out at the last - pure gold. The audienc& ate it up, man just slurped the whole thing! "Farley's Song," another · Downing original, had a good waah-waah trai11 horn sound from the harmonica that cut out softly at the end. For an encore the "Brothers" did the Drifters tune ''On Broadway" in' their own fine style, throwing an original in-, strumental iritroduction lasting over three minutes, worth listening to as a number in its own right. Sargentti shifted it ·into vocal, doing some superior high range work. "The Downing Brothers" described their part of the show as feeling like . they were "playing Carlsbad Caverns", but they really did their job of getting the people "up" for "Texas." "Texas" came on as big as their name with Jerry Lee Lewis' old tune "Tossin' and Turnin'", heavy on the sax with

"TEXAS" performing at the gym last Tuesday night. , · good drum backing and a steady bass beat. The :vocal work had a clear, punching sound: Then came "25 Miles" 'Wham!! Both drummers going just as hard as they could, four of the group came in on the vocal arrangement and the guitars turned loose, the bass guitar kicking out a steady bambambam and Wesley Harr s pushing his voice into high' range. "Illusion", called "Texasstyle" Rock-n-Roll, was carried by the instrumental work, a good, good guitar sound by lead man "Mase" Mabrum, the sax and drums· carrying the beat. People who didn't show for the concer:t missed a lot just because they didll't hear «I Hate to Boogie", which of course has to be one of the best boogie numbers to come across the charts in a long, long time. 'I've spent some time in the Lone Star State and I'll tell you, that was boogie, TEXAS style as well as "Texas'.' "Part Time Love" started out with "Mase" Mabrum singing and on guitar by himsel{. Gerry Emerson cut in behind him on drums with Danny 'K. Miles · really pulling some strings on

Pinball machines draw crowds at the Bob-Inn By JEFF WALTHER

Briiiing ! Buzzzzzz ! din-dindin-ding ! Odd as these sounds are, they are quite common at Peru State's Bob-Inn. These sounds are the song of the pinball machine. Try .to 'get up : one morning and walk· into the Student Center and beat the ' pinball freaks to the tables. Chances are you won't get their early enough. The games go on from dawn to closing time, and even then the players may have to be forcefully exitted from the ·building, away from their beloved machines. What causes 'this "Zombie-like" attraction? What holds these people, men and women alike, to these fascinating bits of wood, wire, and metal? .., ., "It's the challenge," says freshman Dennis Glaab. "You

beat the machine, or it beats you." Glaab says that he .and most of the other "pinball freaks" spend as much as 3 to 4 hours a day playing the s_ilver ball. "It's really the only thing that happens on campus,".said Don (Jersey) Longo. "There's nothing else to do."_ Longo figtired that he spends approximately Hl.00 a year playing the machines, even though he does win quite often. Peru State's exchange student from Iran, Andrani15 (Andy) Najarian, wasn't immune to the lure of the, flash and glitter. Andy says he too plays between 1-3 hours a day. The challenge and the prospect of winning free games, (something for nothing), draws him again and again to the table.

"We have pinball machines in Iran too," says Najarian, "but they are for gambling." "You can wager a dollar and win up to two hundred dollars if you have a good game."

"bagatelle board" took America for a moment, from the gloom of the depression. Since that time, advances such as · anti-tilt devices, flippers and the wonder of electnc1ty has made the pinball novelty company a giant and booming industy. H~w to win? "It's . all in knowing how to use the flippers," says veteran Longo. "Give it the right nudge, don't tilt, and be patient. If you can put it all together, you'll win most of the time.

Though a promise of money is absent from American machines and prohibited by laws, the free game hauls in the players by the carloads. The inovation of giving free games for five well-played balls has a Nebraska· origin. In 1937, Western Equipment and Supply Company came up with "aksarben." - the free game. Longo sounds iike he;s putting The three machines in the ·-forth a philosoohy to life. Maybe Bob-Inn are all manufactured by that's the secret attraction. the D. Gottlieb Company. Every game is like a small Gottlieb started back in J.930 lifetime. You win and you lose. ,with a string of coin-ope1'fed .But in pinball, unlike in life, you've got flippers and the test-your-grip machines in chance to win a free game. Texas. His new inv~ntion of the

bass guitar ,.and the whole group swinging in on it. Sax man Bob Anderson got in on the vocal work on this one along with Wes Harris. "Mase" Mabrum and Gerry Moore. Then the sax and lead guitar got into a heavy duet - l had a hard time staying still listening· to that one, kept wanting to grab a girl and· get out and boogie! "I Feel So Bad" had all the stops pulled on it. Everything was going - "do you, do we, do I" - the sax leading the way! To end the show, "Texas" did "Rock-n-Roll Eyes", guitars both in on the beginning, the rest , of the group cutting in behilid them, just- Wow!! -gettin' it on! Cut as a single, it had a solo by each member of the band, all singing about a girl with (Natch) "Rock-n-Roll Eyes." The harmonica really ripped it on out, the lead guitar coming in with high range repeat picking. Everybody got it together for a rolling finish. It was all some really heavy sounds and if those fellows don't make it to the top then we'd all better take another look at the music industry, becuase there would be something awfully wrong.

The five foot-three inch blue eyed blonde was born and raised in Kansas and makes her home at Morgan Hall during the school year. She is the daughter of Mr and Mrs Laurence Giersch of Salina, Kansas. Her activities on campus include cheerleading and being a member of the Women's Athletic . Association. She enjoys to cook ("cookies and cakes, sweet things, the more fattening the better") and sew. Lucy lists Horse-back riding, softball, roller-skating, boating, swimming and waterskiing. Her favorite season being summer and her favorite day being the first day of it, Lucy likes to spend alot of time in the . sun. She has spent the last four


summers working as a Public Relations representative for McDonald's. Miss Giersch stated her future goal was to· be a successful teacher. She said she would like to teach because she enjoys working with people. Her plans are to teach secondary education business courses or at a vocational college. Lucy believes "Happiness is the most important thing in the world." Life is not going to last long so one shouldn't be grouchy or upset." There is only one life to live-one chance to do what you want to do · you . should do whatever will make you happy." On being elected Glamour Girl Lucy said, "I think it's a fantastic feeling being the Glamour girl, but it was just an honor being nominated."

peakeasy program· begins By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER Seven students showed up at the first session of SPEAKEASY held February 12 between 12 and 1 p.m. over lunch. According to Ms Underwood the first session was a personalized way of everyone getting to know everyone else by getting up in front of the group and giving a little background on themselves. The instructors also did this because as Ms Underwood put it, "We're all in this together." "Films and handouts

are on the agenda for future meetings" said Ms Underwood. "We hope to include a diversity of different types of speaking such as drama, debate, and poetry reading." She added, "The ones who came were the ones who were interested so the size of the group does not matter." Ms Underwood condluded by saying that she hoped for future reference that students will take advantage of this new and highly exciting program.

ALCOHOL ON CAMPUS - In an effort to increase the number of letters from PSC students to their State Senators in the Unicameral, the SGA has planned to set up a booth with free stationary, envelopes. and postage provided for the cause.

"There really hasn't been a noticeable effort made by the student body yet," said SGA President Dean Young of the letter writing campaign for the Alcohol on Campus Bill, (LB 783). "Whether this bill passes or not is an emotional as well as a legal issue," said Senator Terrie Funkhouser. She said she was concerned that because of many of the state college's student's lack of interest, the senators would get a "lop-sided" impression of their voter's stand on the controversy. "The bill represents more than just the legalization of alcohol on· the state campuses," said ~Funkhouser, "it is an illegal infringement of a civil right." Ms. Funkhouser was referring to the right of all Nebraska residents 19 years of age or over to purchase and consume alcoholic beverages. CONSTITUTION INVESTIGATION - A committee of SGA Senators plans to investigate the constitutions of all the PSC student organizations. The senators will examine the laws of the organizations and present suggestions to the officers of the clubs to make their constitutions more effective and up-to-date. The committee's findings will also be presented to the S~A.

By JEFF WALTHER Astudent complaint booth will be set up at the Bob Inn today between 12 and 1 p.m. Students with complaints or grievances about campus activities or student-faculty disagreements will be asked to fill out a complaint form . Peru State's Student Governing Association has placed the booth there to increase student representation in campus affiars. SGA Senators will man the booth Monday through Friday through the rest of the semester between 12 and 1 p.m. The complaint booth is to be a collecting point for student gripes. SGA plaris to take the completed forms to the administration and present them at an informal "rap session" to be started later this month. The rap session will be between the PSC faculty and the students. The SGA Senators hope that the informal sessions will lend a greater understanding of recurrent problems and lead to some type of positive action in eliminating them. Other issues discussed at the SGA's February 12 meeting were:

residents wanted more ooendorm hours. The results from the petitions will be sent to Chadron State College for analysis. President Young said that the ultimate goal of the effort would be to lift the hours - ban completely from the dorms. An appeal to the administration will be made after the forms are returned from Chadron. OPEN SWIMMING - The swimming pool in the basement of the gym will be open for recreational swimming to PSC students and their guests four days a week. Getting the pool open was an SGA project which was begun last October. A schedule had to be arranged between the school and the city of Peru. The current schedule is as follows: SUNDAY - 1-4 P.M. - PSC students and faculty. SATURDAY - 1-4 P.M. Open to the !JUblic. BIKE RACK - -In con- · sideration of the energy crisis and the increase of bikers expected this spring, a committee headed by Senator Bud Kimball is looking into obtaining a bike rack for the campus. When the rack is obtained, it will be placed in a central location on campus for convenience and security. Kimball will speak to George Wendall, superintendant of buildings and grounds, to have the department handle the installation.

Dance revives memories By JANICE JOHNSON Rock arid roll is here to stay as was evidenced at the gym on February 12. Host Carl Mann of KOIL took us back to the 1950's with the musical question "Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor (On the Bedpost Over Nightl." The fashion trend of the evening was the slicked back hair (butch wax shall return! ! ), argyle and white socks, "tennies," ponytailes, long-tailed white shirts, loafers, saddle shoes, cuffed jeans (the higher the better!), muscle shirts (packs of cigarettes maybe?), and we can't forget the shades <in a dark room yet.) · The King-Elvis, who else? __:_ rolled on with Mann playing his golden oldies of "Hound Dog," "Teddy Bear," "Heartbreak Hotel," "Won't Y~u Wear My

Sometimes our style of dancing worked and sometimes not. However, the dancers deserve credit for trying. If nothing else, it brought back some memories for those of us old enough to remember the grand and glorious 50's.

Odor ends talent show The College Auditorium was permeated at the Variety Show with a "Mad Scientist" chemical concoction. Curtis Robinson won first place in the serious division with

his guitar talent. An act by some of the Davidson-Palmer girls, introduced by Phil Richter as W. C. Fields, won first place in the humorous division.

hy a touring company, "No No Nanette," has reopened once again in _New York City. Hopefully with the saJTle professional proficiency of a large louring company without the glamour and glitter of being in New York City Peru State College students will try to glve you the same type of entertainment you would enjoy by a highly paid road show at a much cheaper price. The musical opened in the Peru State College auditorium last night at 8 p.m. and will be showing at the same time tonight. The cast of 21 students which includes 11 chorus members is · by far one of the largest casts in a musical production presented at Peru in a long time. One of the main differences of this musical compared with other plays thus far this year according to John Billings, director is that "a majority of the stu.dents who tried nut had little or no theatre background or drama experience in high school or while they've attended Peru." John said, "We have a lot of 'new blood' in this production." When asked whether the inexperience of the actors was a help or a hindering device in the ability to work with them John remarked, "More often than not their inexperience made them easier to work with." "From the opening date we were rehearsing for five weeks" said Billings "and in that amount of time we've come along way with a cast as large as this." "This show is purely entertainment and has no deep underlying message to get across to the audience," said Billings "this light musical comedy will·. provide ·a very satisfying and entertaining form of enjoyment to all who attend." John's final remarks were in saying that the company has done a fine job. He put emphasis on the fact that the cast was put through many long and often trying rehearsals but they came through with a lot to show for it. According to Billings the musical was given $500 to work with as a budget and 365 dollars of that went to renting the music and paying the royalities on the show. When asked how much the set cost Billings replied, "30 cents." A lot of the costumes worn m the musical were original 20's outfits were loaned to the cast by Mrs M. K. VanHorne of Pawnee City. Mrs Donald Miller, Mrs Lester Russell, Mrs Lucy Hovey, and Mrs Clyde Barrett consolidated their efforts in sewing the22dance dresses, the five tux jackets, the five hats and the other miscellaneous items needed for costume changes in the musical. Mrs Miller said that she cut out all the dresses and the other ladies helped to sew them. Mrs Clyde Barrett was in charge of making the five tux jackets. Mrs Miller said they were very lucky to pick up the material they needed at a very reasonable price by checking out the good will stores. Mrs Miller remarked, "I can't begin to imagine how many hours were spent cutting, sewing, and altering the costumes but everything turned out looking great." Beth Butts, wardrobe director took care of the alterations on the costumes they

already had from past plays. The chorus dances in the musical add a robust 20's flavor to the comedy show. The pairs of dancing duets provide enough to make you want to see the musical more than once. Two of the most popular songs in the musical are, "I want to be Happy," and "Tea for Two." They add a light hearted touch needed in the musical to make it a success. The plot in summary is about a young girl in her twenties who wants to get married but has decided to sow a few wild oats before she settles down. Her start to make a new and more exciting life for herself begins with a move to Atlantic City. The sub plot so to speak is brought about by Jimmy, who is the president of a bible publishing firm. Jimmy is supporting three young and deserving ladies who through hard times have all lost their money. Billy, Jimmys lawyer finds out about this and immediately arrives at the conclusion that Jimmy is fooling around which causes a grave misunderstanding when Sue, · Jimmys wife finds out and she too thinks he's fooling around. She finds out that it is really Billy who is not on the level ang then what happens? Come to the -show and find out. The leads are played by Dennis Emhke as Tom, Diane Rees and Nanette, Linda Doty as Sue, Ray Boeche as Jimmy, Jan Pressgrove as Lucille, John Chatlain as Billy, Trina O'Banion as Flora, Deb Hebda as Betty, Janet Wilson as Winnie and Julee Tillman as Pauline.

Using the student agreements from Northern Iowa and Northern Colorado State as a basis for changing the present Student _ Agreement at Peru State College, ·the Constitution Committee of the Student Governing Association has begun to revise and redefine the 1973-74 Student Agreement. Constitution Committee· chairman Scott McKercher and members Gary Boman and Terrie Funkhouser will give a progress report at the next SGA meeting. SGA President Dean Young said there is a need to clarify vague terms in the present student agreement, a need for the students to know the extent of their freedoms, their rights and responsibilities as students and as citizens. This has been overlooked in the past, he said. Young also said that the outcome of the changes will have more impact on the student body than any other issue that SGA has supported. __ _ _ Dr. Guy Rosenberg, Dean of Students said that he believes the students have a right to know what channels to go through if they think they have received an unfair grade, where to go to repeal traffic violations, what action can be taken in other situations and what procedures to go through when action is not carried out. Members of the Constitution Committee will confer with Dr. Rosenberg on legal matters where advice is needed and on matters of student freedoms and their limitations.

The Constitution Committee will review the constitutions of the other campus organizations. The validity of the constitutions will be challenged to find if the organizations are living up to their constitutions. If not, constitutions will be brought before the SG A for further action. Other topics at the last SGA meeting, February 19, were: NEW CLASS SCHEDULE Student reaction to class scheduling which moved class periods back 30 minutes were favorable, according to SCB president, Fritz Stehlik. Dorm students will be surveyed by student senators to determine if students favor returning to the old class schedule.

One of the main jobs as editor of a newspaper is to listen to complaints. No matter how hard you try there is always someone who doesn't like the way you do something. Not one day goes by without someone complaining about something. The advanced journalism class complains to me because they don't like the stories I assign them. My advisor complains to me because some of our leads aren't as good as they sho).lld be. A certain faculty member complains because a particufar story was on the wrong page.

Faculty member Hahn once Korean 'editor By JANICE JOHNSON Not every teacher on this campus has a law degree, plus a Master's in journalism and a Ph.D in political science with journalism and sociology as minors. John Hahn does. Mr Hahn worked as a journalist in Korea for 12 years after receiving his law · degree. Originally he was a reporter for the Ryong Nahm daily covering the government, political parties, and sports. He later became chief political writer for this paper and was sent to Tokyo as a correspondent. Until he came to the United States, Mr Hahn was Managing Editor of the Korea Press. After arriving in the United States, he attended the University of Minnesota graduate school and got his Master's degree in journalism. and had sociology as a minor. He. later changed to political science and received his doctorate in it and had journalism and sociology as minors. "The field of journalism (Hahr believes) educates and trains people .in a most diversified and speedy way. However, as in any profession, you need experienc~. knowledge, and sincerity and in gaining more of this, you build yourself for better individual contributions to the community and country. You do this so you can serve them better, not for your own benefit. The nine years or so that I've

spent teaching on the college level has been part of my learning. I've always tried to be available and attentive when new ideas and better learning services are brought up. America will always be the best country on earth. The education system is one of the best. I guess if you stop learning, you're dead."

Rosewell, Wheeler win writing contest

By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER , Sex discrimination is over. At least in the case of girls dorm · hours at Peru State College. All mandatory hours for girls under the age of 19 have been dropped due to a sex discrimination complaint submitted to the SG A. A few of the girls who were · under these hours reported their · parents were agitated by the "good news." Nancy Kottich said her mother was mad at first but later accepted it as a legality. Kathy Pietzkek told her parents and they didn't mind. When asked why her parents put her on hours she said it had to do with her safety and it apparently gave her parents reassurance that their daughter was in at certain time so they could be at peace and not have· to worry. Deb Scholl said her parents didn't say much about it one way or another. · Speaking from personal experience being on hours was very confining knowing that where ever I was, whenever I was having a good time that I had to report in at a specific time. Being on hours gave my

parents reassurance that someone knew where I was all the time. It was like someone was taking over their job as watch dog. A lot of begging and the promise to get good grades got me off hours.

Pat. Kinnison, a resident of Morgan Hall, wanted for sometime to get off bours but could not get parental permission. She got her chance when one freshman girl found out about the legality of having hours and how Peru was violating Title 9ofthe Education Amendments passed in 1972. She decided action was needed and took it through the proper channels. Some of the girls interviewed expressed how confusing the ·paper sent out to all parents at the beginning of the semester on dorm hours and weekend visiting of friends was. According to some who wish to remain anonymous the wording in this letter asking parents if they wanted their daughters on or off hours was confusing. Consequently; parents wanting the safety and protection of their daughter going off to college checked no to all .the questions

and the girls found themselves corning in at 11: 30 every nite for what seemed like bed-check. Other girls felt that as college students they had to accept some new responsibilities never before encountered. Being able to decide what time they should come in was vital to them as a part of these new responsibilities. Some girls found their parents were not in total agreement with their ideas on independency. Those same girls were put on hours. None of the girls affected by Title 9 of the Education Amendments 1972 which got · them off hours requested to be put back on hours on a voluntary basis. One girl added, "It seems to me that if guys under the age of 19 aren't required to be on hours than neither should we. Everyone just accepted the idea that if you were put on hours and your parents wouldn't let you off that there was nothing you could do about it. I'm glad someone was smart enough to look into it." Peru State College was the last of the four state colleges to do away with girls hours.

Letters To The Editor . for the benefit of Dr. Pearson so Dear Editor: I should like to take this op- that he could entertain guests at portunity to reply to Ms Gregg's Peru.

Rights Amendments, new Birth Control Concepts, Open Dorms, Coed Housing and other topics that college kids would be more interested in'! Granted, we do send the Ped to alumni and to • surrounding highschools but the college interests should not be ignored. I really don't object to PSC putting their best foot forward, I think it's great, when the Ped doesn't do anything toward increasing its reading interest on campus then sornething's wrong. It seems the Ped. has become irrelevant to college life and if you want news you have to resort to other sources. It also seems that in the past apathy has been a well used word in every issue of the Ped. It seems to me, if you preach apathy, you are going to get apathy!!!! The people who preach apathy the most on this campus are the ones who are never seen at atheletic events, dances, and concerts, much less free movies and speakers who appear. TeriHailar

Al though the plot lakes off in several different directions it is relatively simple to follow. The loose ends are tied together and the action comes to climax at Chickadee cottage when all the unexpected visitors find out about each other and the reasons behind why each is there. To do justice to the chorus it must be said they tried. In the five weeks alloted for rehearsals and for what they came up with in that amount of time the performance was up to par. For a college the size of Peru and with the memories of past musicals and their end results still fairly fresh in the minds of the audience the chorus was remarkable. There was flair and diversity in the dance routines and rythem enough to keep the audience from getting bored but even the flavor of the 20's cannot reconcile the .lack of inspiration on the faces of some to balance off the enthusiasl)l clearly shown by others.

The basketball explodes from the fin~ers of the 6' 4" player, following a high, graceful arc. It's a high jumper from fifteen feet out. Swish! The shot adds another two points to the PSC cause. Spectacular? Sure; but that's what's expected from Freeman Beville. It's his trademark. Beville or "Bev" as his teammat~ and coach call him, is the remarkable freshman forward who has been keeping the ritn hot for the Bobcats this season. Playing in 14 of the 16 games of the 73;74 season, Bev has racked up a total of 245 points with a game average of 17:5 points, making him the second leading scorer on the team. "I've been playing basketball since ninth grade,'' said Beville. He started playing the allatnerican game for his high school in White Plains; New York. "I like football and all the other team sports, but basketball is the only sport I'm serious about," he said. His conviction to the game brought him to the attention of the PSC sports department which granted him a full tuition basketball scholarship. His high school honors include being selected to the "New York Daily News" All Star Team for two years in a row. In those same two years, 1967 and '68, his junior and senior years, Beville was named to the AllWestchester County Team as an area superstar. According to.

"Peru's a quiet place, there aren't as many hassles like back home," commented Beville. "I like to play for PSC, but it has its good and bad points," he said. "The coach, (head basketball coach Schnaser), doesn't stress defense enough," said Bev. He feels this could be the big factor in Peru's bad pertormance 011 the woods. Says Coach Schnaser; "coming in the middle of the season, I haven't had the time to mold the team as a solid unit. We don't have the basis of a team defense down yet." The coach said that his players are playing as individuals and not as a team once they can play together, Schnaser said "Look out." ·"Bevill e's not an outgoing guy," said Schnaser. · "He prefers to do his job out on the court and be a good team member," he said. "Of course his real contribution to the team effort is his outside shooting ability,'' says the coach. Out of 275 attempts, Beville has scored 108 times. "If Freeman is to become a complete ballplayer,'; Schnaser confided, "he'll have to become more of a 'physical player.' Bev avoids contact. He won't come into the key unless · it's absolutely necessary." But from the stats, it looks like Beville's got the game down outside the key-perimeter. His

height and effort has made him the leading rebounder for the team with 103 grabs to his credit so far. Being a freshman at Peru gives him three more years to work on some of these difficulties and polish his already sparkeling talent. You can bet that lot of important people in basketball will keep their eye on this 'Caf.


Schnaser to view high school teams Peru State's basketball coach, Roger Schnaser; will become a spectator of high school cage action whenever possible during the next few weeks. In an effort to rebuild the college's basketball program, he plans to view inter-school competition and district basketball tournaments with recruitment in mind. "The majority -Of PSC recruiting has been out of state in the past," Coach Schnaser said. "I think it's a bad mistake to overlook the talent of local athletes." _ The first year coach who joined the Peru State College staff second semester will .visit players and coaches in the intensified recruiting, as will other members of the coaching staff and Bobcat basketball players.

The food service at the Bohn and PSC cafeteria was the ajor complaint registered by dents at the SGA complaint oth according to Senator John le. Cole said the complaints ntered around lack of service, or quality and preparation of als and sanitation in the ning area. One-third of the ta! complaints submitted at e booth asked for action to medy the poor service of the ughton Food Company which s both the cafeteria and the b-Inn. 'We received a reasonable onse from the students," id Cole about the turnout. The mplaints covered a wide nge of campus issues. Some of e major +Fine Arts building not open for musicians to practice on weekends +lack of sufficient in-

Students said the larger display items were "not by any means'' representing the smaller 'vending' bars they received. To get a more precise concept of student dissatisfii'ction, Senator Cole and his committee members plan to distribute complaint forms to all the campus dorms next week.

accumulated· data to be reviewed by the student senators. The information will be the topic of the first of a planned series of informal "allcollege rap sessions." Students and PSC administrators will meet to discuss the issues in qopes of some achieving type of ' positive action. Other items discussed at the February 26 meeting were: NEW CLASS SCHEDULE The SGA Senators reported that 74 per cent of the students interviewed in an oral survey by the senators approved of the new class hours. The new schedule moved the clsses up 30 minutes to relieve st~dents in morning classes of att~ding before sun rise. Objections· to the new hours were raised mostly by business majors whose classes were · running laterinto·the.afternoon. Fritz Stehlik will present the results to the Student Center Board for final approval. CRACKDOWN ON TRAFFIC VIOLATORS: - SGA Senator Bud Kimball told SGA that the traffic committee had approved a series of increases in fines for traffic violations. The committee increased the penalties, Kimball said, "because of an apparent lack of observance of the regulations." The new fines are listed with their corresponding violation: Carless driving $10 Negligent driving $15 Reckless driving $20 Willful! and reckless driving $25 (THE ARRESTING OFFICER WILL DETERMINE THE VIOLATION)

Stop sign violation $10 Driving on Pedestrian Walkways. $20 plus restitution for any damages and subject to disciplinary action. THE FOLLOWING EXISTING LAWS ARE TO BE MORE STRICTLY ENFORCED: All motorcycles shall be inspected for proper registration. Motorcycles cannot be parked on the grass. Driving on the campus will carry a stiffer punishment or assessment. These changes go into effect today. They were approved by the traffic committee at the February 20 meeting. Members on the committee are Dean or Guy Rosenberg, Campus Officer Gilbert, Grounds Superintendent George Wendel, and. SGA Senators Jim Wolken and Bud Kimball. ALCOHOL ON STATE COLLEGE CAMPUSES - The Student Coalition of the State Colleges (S.C.S.C.J held a workshop in Lincoln February 27 and 28. Representing Peru State at the affair were SGA President Dean Young, Terri Funkllousor and John Cole. The workshop consisted of a series of talks with State legislators to pursue passage of LB 783. A meeting with Governor Exon was also scheduled. Young plans to meet with Exon about the last Wednesday defeat of his proposal to "save the state colleges." BIKE RACK - Senator Bud Kimball met with Superintendent of Buildings and Groun.ds George Wendel to


discuss the appropriation of a bicycle rack for a number of PSC cyclists who requested it for use this Spring. Wendel told Kimball that he may be able to get a rack from Auburn or his department will make one. The bike rack should be ready for installation in a central campus location in the near future," said Kimball. FREE TUITION PROPOSAL FOR SENIORS- Senator David Stahmer of the Nebraska Unicameral made a proposal recently calling for a tuition waiver for state college seniors. The proposal was made to cut the drop-out rate of the upperclass students which Stahmer said was greater than the freshman-sophomore drop rate. The SGA tabled discussion and approval-voting until further news could be. learned of the details of the proposal. Fritz Stehlik will study the proposal and present his findings to the SGA at tomorrow's meeting. DORM BURGLARIES Senator Amy Walsh informed the SGA of a considerable number of burglaries in Morgan Hall last weekend. Initial investigation revealed that access to the rooms was gained by use of a key or keys which open a number of apartments. A petition calling for all of the dorm's locks changed was just being completed, but showed overall backing by residents. The petition will be presented to the student Activities Committee for approval. Many of the residents were forced to spend the weekend in the dorm "guarding" their rooms from further thefts.

Vandals hit Delzell

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: In the February 25 issue of the Ped an article appeared concerqing Hess Dias, the Democratic candidate for the House of Representa~ives. The article contained the statement" .. an honest politician which' is something you don't fitfd everyday ... " To me, this seems to be a pretty opinionated statement to be included in a straight news article. Whethrr or not Hess Dia 5 is an honest politician is largely a matter of personal feelings. I am not trying to start a political argument. I appreciate .what Mr Dias represents, and I have no antagonism toward the reporter who wrote the story· I just think that person should be a little more careful. I am sure that this statement was included by mistake or oversight, probably arisen because of stories such as this. · ROLAND BARRETT

Where were you when the lightswentout.lastFebruary21? Probably at Duffy's. That Thursday night the entire town of Pei;u was in complete darkness except Duffy's who's lights were provided by their own generator for more than six hours. The bar may have been the center of activity that night · but other students were doing other things in other places. At least we have a pretty good idea of what went on at Duffy's.. Bill Martin was stuck in a · ditch on the seven mile stretch. Eileen Scholl and Nancy Kottich were busy hanging a dummy in the basement of DavidsonPalmer hall. The guys attending open hours there were being kicked out of the dorm by Mrs Hallock th~· · housemother who said she got her orders from the campus security who said they got their orders from higher up. Security

also locked all the doors so guys couldq't get back in. ··According to Scott McKercher guys in Delzell were running through the halls with matches to see where they were going. Mrs Hallock noted the girls of Davidson-Palmer were doing the same. Dean Anstey said he -was sleeping. When he found out this was for the Ped he made sure to note that he was alone. Roland · Barrett was stuck in the middle of a road fifteen miles outside of Lincoln. Frank D' Addesa was playing chess by candlelight with Steve Mann and later Phil Dean. Steve later went to Duffy's. Fritz Stehlik was in Nebraska City at home where the lights were on. Amy Walsh said she tended her sick roomate and then went to Rex's and ate in the dark where they were cooking by candlelight.

.second annual essay contest being held

By JEFF WALTHER . A peace essay contest for Nebraska college students sponsored by Rural Nebraskans for Peace, is underway in Nebraska. This is the second year for the essay contest The theme of this years contest, "War Need Not Be Inevitable", is, according to the peace group, taken from an , article by Norman Cousins. The remainder of the article expresses the general motivation behind the contest: "War need not be inevitab\e, but it will not go away by itself. When enough people come to understand that peace is a science, and are prepared to meetits stern demands, there is a good chance that war can be abolished. Until then, it is difficult for the hiiman race to regard itself as truely civilized." . There are a number of essay topics under three main headings, Biography, Current Events, and Philosophical Considerations. The length of the essay is to be from 500 to 3,000 woras; there must be three references used and listed

at the end of the essay. Essays are to be submitted by March 15 to the Norfold Peace Group, 1005 Norfolk Avenue, Norfolk, NE 68701. Winners will be an: nounced May 1. Each contest winner will receive $100, each runner-up, $50. An information kit is available from the group Mr 25 cents. The Norfolk Peace Group is · affiliated with another, larger organization, Nebraskans For Peace, which is affiliated with a, national peace organization: · Clergy and Laity Con~rned. These organizations came into being as a result of concern felt by small groups over our, countries actions in Vietnam. According to a Norfolk Peace. Group press release, the group continues to work because of our country's continued military involvement in other countries. "The peace groups", it said, "are concerned about the continued massive support of the U.S. to repressive, antidemocratic dictatorships in various parts of the world (26 at last count)., and our increased military budget at a time we are supposedly seeking detente,"

Sherry Gregg said that she pretended she was an earthling on Mars with super scopic view so she could see everything that night. Sherry was asked what she was doing that night when she was down at Duff's. This might account for the ·answer she gave. Mike Resso said that night he checked to see if the' girls on campus were allright and see if they needed any help. He even had an extra candle with him in case somebody needed one. Resso said his intentions were purely honorable .. Scott Christensen said, "please don't ask me about that nigljt, it was one of the worst I've had in a long time." Now that we know what some were doing.whe1t the lights went out maybe the next question should be, what were you caught doing when the lights came back on?

BOOK Review

Richard Brautigan has come inJ-0 the limelight of the American literary scene. only after many years of writing poetry and novels of limited popularity. Brautigan hasn't changed, but the reading public has, and its about time. "Trout Fishing in America", which doesn't have a thing to do with tr9ut fishing, is a glorius collage of short stories and. letters written about the different people, places and situations the main character experienced while looking for a bigger and better trout stream. Instead of finding trout he finds a piece of Americana . Everything he comes in contact with has a story, even an old abandoned out-house that just wants to be left alone. / Jn . Watermelon Sugar 1s a novel about a different time and a different place where everything is made out of watermelon sugar. It's a simple story of life, death, love and hate set in the background of the "forgott~n ·works,". the ruined rubble of our society after the great catastrophy. As with Brautigan's other works it's not the plot that's intriging, it's the style. The refreshing use of the English language and vivid imagry make Brautigans works very readable. His books were written to be read on a rainy day, a warm spring afternoon, or just about any day when there is a little extra time that should be enjoyed. DEAN YOUNG

Students give views on legislative. Bill 783 The Pedagogian asked students for their opinions, pro and con. The questions asked were: Do you approve of the allowance of alcohol on the state campuses? and why? Jµlee Tillman (Senior) "If the profits frorri the sale of alcoholic beverages on campus would go to the state and later return indirectly to the state colleges, then it would be of financial benefit to the schools."

Phillip Dean · <Freshman) "I think it would be a fine idea. The students do it anyway, if legalized, it will be for the greater benefit of a majority of students."


THE EDITOR What do you do when you discover you have had things stolen from you? Or in simpler terms what does the victim of a rip-off do? I know I'm not the first to return from a week-end at home and find certain belongings gone from my room. But reai!y you can't even classify a dorm room totally and privately yours. The trouble is your door can be unlocked by about fifteen other keys in possession of girls living in the dorm. And the college wonders why more students do not choose to live on campus. You would think that by the age of is those who enter college would be mature and responsible adults, who want to learn and broaden their education in the best way possible. But on the contrary some get in to stealing clothes right off a person's back. It is not only immature but people like this are really sick and the situation has to be improved. If the college has to change the entire lock system in the dorms then it must be done soon because I (and I know many others) can't afford .to have $15 to $20 worth of stuff stolen every time you leave yom room. Maybe you haven't been a victim yet and you are really lucky. But that luck might not hold out unless proper action is taken now to stop all the stealing that's going on here at the college. PATRICE KINNISON Morgan Hall

Bob Wernsman <Senior) "Not particularly. I don't see a real genuine need for it. Instead of going for that, I think the students should be working to change the rules concerning not being able to have liquor in offcampus housing and the antiquated rule of not housing members of the opposite sex in the off-campus housing ~ither." "Since these rules are ignored by everyone anyway, I think they should be dropped."

Steve McVay (Sophomore) "Most college students of legal age can handle themselves and the responsibilities of having alcohol on campus. What better environment could there be to consume such a beverage than an educational environment where one is surrounded by other mature students? I don't think of beer and liquor as a crutch or emotionalrelease but more as a beverage which can and should be consumed in a relaxed atmosphere.

.StreaKers appear on €ampus Peru streakers furnished a different kind of "extemporaneous" event. for district high school speech contestants last Tuesday evening. Visiting student speakers were leaving the Fine Arts Building at 7:30 p.m. when eight ski-masked male streakers raced by, going around to the north side of the building. As they ran up the hill toward Morgan Hall, Campus Security Officer Howard Allgood and another officer came up behind them in a patrol car. The boys saw them and ran down the hill toward Delzell, the officers in full pursuit. The streakers entered Delzell and were gone from view when the two officers arrived on the scene.

New Wheeler Inn reviewed Wheeler Inn, a relatively new l'al ing rslablishmenl in Auburn which made the changeover from a pizza lovers den lo a steak house several months ago makes no promises and does very little advertising but inevitably gives you the best for _ less. Consideration for customers. personalized assistance in· selecting the best quality cuts of steak or anything else on the menu for the most reasonable price, quick service, and a staff I hat is proficient in their work is a combination rarely found in any eating establishment large or small. The managing staff, waitresses, and busboys along with the cooks should be complimented on meeting the above requirements necessary for the survival and success of any restaurant. On entering the restaurant our dinner party was well received and we were allowed to be seated at the table of our choice unlike other restaurants where you wait in the lobby for an hour and then are shown to a dimly lit table where you are lucky if you can read the menu let alone find your silverware. Although the table of our choice was cluttered with the remainder of food and dishes from a previous party, a busboy was promptly at our disposal put to the task of cleaning up and at the same time provided us with a little comic relief. It is not in every restaurant that you are privileged to be entertained by a one man show who can balance

\'ups and plat es in one hand, clear off lhe table with the other and tell you his life-lime experiences as a busboy in the process of doing everything else. He apologized for not knowing how lo rlay a violin. In most restaurants where the sealing capacity is almost·filled you can expect to down several dinner drinks before the arrival of your meal. It usually doesn 'L come as a surprise when your rolls and your appetizer are served several degrees below wan11. II came as un'"xpected surprise when our me:il was served midway into o:ir first drink. Wheeler Inn is one of the few restaurants that l have come across in a long time that actually believes ia nutting liquor into their drinks instead of just loading them up with ice and seltzer waler. With the great service we received it would have taken gumption to complain about the cold rolls. The French Dip which is sliced prime ribs served on a seasame bun with french fries and a sauce for dipping was delicious. The Prime Rib Steaks, which was almost an inch and a half thick served in a platter of juice could have been cut with a butter knife. The relaxing atmosphere, the reasonable prices and the constant kssistance and consideration on the part of our waitress made a most favorable reflection on Wheeler Inn. The impression made upon us was enough to start spreading the good word.

Students express views on reading program "I don't see any point in it. As it is, I read nearly 200 books a year and this extra--well--there's just no point." This is one of the responses that were given to the question of the reading program. This program is an outside reading enrichment program for all language arts majors. Through this program, there have been many "classics" read. A classic is described as being a book that can be simple without being vulgar, elevated without being distant and is something neither ancient nor modern, always new, and incapable of growing old. Many of the students gave the answer that it was pointless. When asked her opinion of it, Emily Rosewell said that the typical language arts major cares about his subject enough to read widely on his own. James. C. Smith was more in favor of the program though he did have one criticism. "I think

the theory behind the reading program is excellent. It's just too bad we don't stick closer to the theory in practice." When asked why the program was developed on Peru's campus, Mrs Mary Ruth Wilson said that it was in response to the expressed needs by supervising teachers to have language arts majors with a wide novel reading background. The books used for the program are picked by a committee of students and faculty from a list of books suggested as reading material by literary magazines. According to Mrs. Wilson this all applies to Journalism students because many new stories make new allusions to ·characters from great classics and to do this, the students should be versed in the classics. Although the program was offered to all areas of study on campus, only language arts is in it.

Students can have jobs Students interested in to Europe this spring or summer can earn back most or all of their trip cost by taking a summer job in Europe. Paying jobs are available in resorts, hotels, restaurants and snack bars in Switzerland, Austria, France, Germany and England. A few weeks on the job earns back the air fare, a few more weeks work earns ample money for traveling around Europe--especially if travel is by bicycle. Standard wages are paid but the big saver is the free room and board provided with each job and arranged in advance by the Student Overseas Services. SOS fills the jobs on a non-profit, first come, first served basis as it has done for the past 16 years. Students are also taking to the roads on bicycles in Europe as a means of beating both the energy and money crisis. Under a new arrangement students can bicycle around Europe with a new European bike that they can put on the plane and take home with them. SOS has arranged bike tours for groups, or individual bikers who want only a new bike, a map, and a 'Survivai Kit'. "But no matter what the reason for going to Europe-exploring, studying, working--," advised John Carodine, SOS Placement Officer, at a recent University of Miami meeting, "Students should immediately sign up for their school charter flight in order to sidestep increasing air fares." Students can also sign up with a neighboring school charter, or any local civic group, museum or town group sponsoring a charter flight to Europe. "This is the cheapest way to fly to Europe," emphasized Carodine, "and students should take advantage of it." SOS does not operate charter flights. Students should look into all local charter possibilities because, once in Europe, it will be easier to earn back the trip cost by taking a paying job--a unique experience in itself. Interested students may obtain application forms, job listings and descriptions, and the SOS handbook on earning their way in Europe by sending their name, address, name of educational institution and $1 (for postage, printing, handling and addressing only) to either SOS--Student Overseas Services, Box 5173, Santa Barbara, Calif. 93108; or to SOS Placement, 22 Ave. de la Liberte, Luxembourg-Europe. 1

Showers new coach and dorm director It seems that football coach · Robert Riley brought ·r'lme additional coaching talent with him when he came to P.S.C. from Montana School of .Mines. Chris 'Showers, a senior rustory major at Montana Tech. on a four-year. football . scholatship, came to Peru with Riley, changing his major to phusical education and joining the college coaching staff as assistant defensive secondary coach on the football team. Showers, a 22-year-old native of Houston, Texas, has quite a · record in athletics. Attending Ross S. Sterling High School from 1966 through 1970, he lettered four years straight in football and baseball, making all-city and all-district quarterback and left-fielder, no mean feat in a city with 32 high schools.

Entering Montana Tech in September of 1970, on a football scholarship, Chris made all.conference quarterback four years running. As a coach here at P.S.C., his. goals are to h~ve a secondary defense rated among the nation's top ten and to help the · team as a whole reach top. ten caliber.· Chris wants to coach here at P.S.C. for quite a w.hile, as he likes the school, the people,.and the area. Asked about the team's progress with spring training, he said, ''They are a dedicated bunch. They want to go nine-andone and get into ~he playoffs. They're really working hard. They've surprised me-I'll tell you that right now!;, The new dormitory director at Delzell Hall as well as a coach.

Defense, pitching, speed baseball team strengths By RICK DeKLOTZ Defense, pitching, quickness. Those three words describe the main strengths of the 1974 Peru State baseball team. Coach Tom Fitzgerald has nine returning lettermen that should provide experience and leadership on the field. Returnees at infield positions include; Dave Rombach-third base, Dave McDaniel-shortstop, and Pat Tynon-second base. Pitchers include Dennis Dickman, Duane Martin and hurler-outfielder Robin Simmons. Returning after a stint in the service to catch for the Bobcats will be Tom Brandt. Brandt caught for Peru in 1968 and. 1969 before entering the Navy. Fitzgerald believes he


will provide maturity that might rub off and help the freshmen. l'fwo other lettermen that might see action for the 'Cats are Terry Criger and Tom Froehlich. Criger is student teaching in Hamburg, Iowa, while Froehlich is teaching in Auburn. The avilability of these two for the squad will depend on when and where the team is playing. Newcomers to the squad that should see considerable action according to Fitzgerald are; Bud Kimball-outfield, Butch Kimball-second base, Greg Sanders-shortstop and Tim Macke-catcher. In a schedule change the doubleheader with Tarkio has been moved up a day to Tuesday, April 2.

(Missouri) and Mike Davis, McMurry (Abilene, Texas). Peru State's entry in the 1973 football brochure contest won an All-American rating, and football program entries placed 17th ill the nation. The' SIDA convention is part of the yearly NAIA convention held concurrently with NAIA's 32team basketball tournament. Also attending meetings and clinics. during the week's N'ASIA activities were Tom· Fitzgerald, PSC Athletic Director, and· Roger Schnaset, PSC basketball coach. Mrs: Schnaser accompanied the group.

Clothes reported stolen at Morgan Hall

Ed210 ~

Someone on campus has a weird sense of humor, but some girls at Morgan don't think it's funny. Approximately $187 worth of clothing has been stolen at the dorm. None has been returned or Jound. · Ann Novak lost $75 worth of dresses, underwear and sweaters. She had this to say about it, "I think the school should have done something .. about it when the thefts were first reported. Instead they all waited until it was too late. I also think they should discontinue the practice of having one key fit all the doors in the dorm. It's. too easy to get ahold of." Some girls from the third floor at Morgan found the charred remains of a nightgown in the incinerator one morning. It

turned out to be that of Barb Krajicek. She had gotten it as a birthday gift and hadn't even worn it. Julia Garnet lost $12 worth of clothes. She wants the money for them instead. "I won't wear those clothes now that someone else has worn them," she says. The biggest loss so far is that of Patrice Kinnison. Nearly $100 worth of new dresses, jeans, shirts, and underwear was taken from her room. As in other cases, none has been found. The incident occurred the last weekend in February. She has filed a report with the police, and her insurance company. She has since placed a padlock on her door. She says, "It's really strange. I don't quite k~w what to think because something like_ this never happened to me before."

"TheShowMustGoOn!", ,;On with the show!" and other th~trical phrases may seem trite and meaningless to most . people these days, but not to the cast of "A Doll's House" Peru s.tate's spring drama 'production. Faced with interuptions in rehearsals due to auditorium use conflicts and with their director Mary Ruth Wilson in the hospital since last Monday, these people have faithfully stuck to their commitments, rehearsing without direction, so that Ibsen's play might go on as scheduled April 15 and 16. '

Casting has not been done according to students' majors, ages or years in college, with a first-semester freshman, Bill Martin, as the male lead, Torvald Helmer and Barb Wilkinson a senior in speech and drama and English, as Nora, his wife. Other cast members are Steve Sharp as Dr. Rank, Rita Miller as Mrs Kristine Linde, Dave Bayless as Nils Krogstad, Susanne Coughlin as Anne-Marie and Cathy Coulter as Helene. Amy Pearson, John Barrett Jr. rnd Peggy Lou Allgood play the )arts of the Helmer children.

:Jhieves strike Dorm increase being discussed Delzell Hall Thieves struck at Delzell Hall March 22 through March 23, entering the room of Wayne Ambler, third floor i:esident assistant and the room of Gary Rosenbeck and Bud Froholing, apparently with keys. A stereo and· speakers, 35 mm. camera and equipment case, AM-FM multiplex receiver, eight:track recorder and gold wrist watch were taken from Ambler's room and Rosenbeck's stereo and television were taken. The total value of articles stolen has not been exactly determined, but it is estimated to be in excess of . $800. · Campus Security and the Nemaha County Sheriffs Office were called in and an investigation is under way.

The sum of $100 or about $39 a semester would be the increase in' dorm rent according to John Letts, Student Housing Director. Letts said that nothing is set yet, but an increase is being . talked about. He also stated that second session summer school ·students might be affected by an increase, the first one in three years at Peru State, The possibility of giving the students some options in student housing is being explored according to Letts. Letts also said that the colleges dorms and owned by an Omaha Bonding Comp. Chiles Heider& Co. Inc. and that they' give a budget for salaries etc, we are expected to stay within. If something else is needed we have to go to them.

Pearson speaks at SGA meeting . President Pearson met with the SGA Senators Tuesday to discuss Peru State's Position in the Kearney-Wayne-NU merger. He handed out a simplified version of the bill to interested senators which contained a list stating the possible effects the bill could have on PSC. Then Pearson spoke on the student-lobby campaign. "I think the students are more involved thant the faculty," he said. Pearson later commented on the high degree of professionalism those students representing Peru have maintained. · Pearson reserved comment on the Carpe.nter proposal. He mentioned that he did not have enough information about the details from the bill to determine it's effect for Peru State. Pearson did say though, that time had to be gained for research to be· done so everyone concerned can fully understand it.

Other topics discussed at March 26 meeting were: STUDENT AFFAIRS - The new locks for burglary-plagued Morgan Hall were ordered March 1 according to Senator Stehlick. "They'll be put in as soon as they arrive," he said. STUDENT RIGHTS - The SGA Constitution Committee has presented a document to Dr's. Rosenberg and Pearson which outlines the specific rights and responsibilities of the PSC student on and off the campus. The document is the product of serveral month's work by the committee. The committee has now excepted the responsibility of revising the SGA constitution. NEW PROGRAMS AT PSC A medical· technical program and a new Associate of Art degree will be offered in the Peru State curriculum according to Senator Stehlik. A minimum cumulitive GPA of 5.0 is to be maintained in the courses similar to the Education

degree program currently under way. LETTERS TO LINCOLN The research committee reported that 70 letters by Peru State students were sent to the State senators concerning alcohol on campus. SGA had set up a booth in the lobby outside of the cafeteria, supplying paper, envelopes and postage to whoever would state their opinion, pro or con, in letter form to the senators. COMMUNITY ACTION - The newly formed Peru Jaycees asked PSC students to roll up their sleeves and pitch-in to clean up Neal Park for the Inauguration ceremonies next month. Neal Park is the park directly opposite the Centennial Complex. SGA Senator Amy Walsh has backed the idea and said that she felt this was a good opportunity for Peru State to increase good relations with the town. The clean-up was at 9:00 a.m. last Saturday .

Hunter takes scoring honors Peru State's Bill Hunter has recently received two postseason basketball honors for bis play during the 1973-74 campaign. "Muff" was named to the Omaha World Herald's All State College second team, and received honorable mention by the Sunday Lincoln Journal and Star. · Hunter led the NAIA district 11 in scoring with a 22.6 average while pulling down 219 rebounds to lead Peru in that category. Heading the World Herald's first team was Kearney State's Tom Kropp. Hastings College had two members on the squadPaul Thomas and Mike Trader, as did Doane with Herb Cousins and Mario Peart. Kropp, Cousins and Trader also made the NAIA All-American honorable mention list.

New flagpole here soon A new flagpole will arrive the first of this week to replace the ·.one that callapsed according to George Wendel, Superintendant of Grounds and Buildings. The old pole collapsed about three weeks ago after someone cut the rop. The section made boiler tubes, that fell nearly proved fatal. According to Wend~! the location of the new pole will be changed, there will be a larger flag and it will be lit up at night, ,

Dr. Pearson urges student reaction to LB 1054 at Tuesday Student Governing Association meeting.

Wilson conducted Spring Concert The annual Spring Concert by the concert band was held March 24, in the College Auditorium, with Dr. Gilbert E. Wilson conducting. There were selections by the stage band featuring a song written by Roland Barrett. Gloria Groothius, Lennie Lah-

man, and Curt Robinson performed three selections. The band had only one week to prepare for the concert due to the spring vacation. With only that period of time, the band did remarkably well. At the end of the program, Dr. Wilson directed the encore of "Soul Truckin'."





STAFF MEMBER'S VIEW Natural sciences career day Thursday Good old Peru State! Nothing ever seems to change much here. 0h, don't get me wrong, heads roll on the faculty, presidents come and go, administrative positions and. titles 'are shuffled now and then like a pack of cards, and, of course, the student body sluffs off its seniors at graduation like a snake's· skin, adding a new one each fall of incoming freshmen. But the "Nothing" I am talking about is really a "Something." "What," you ask? Well, I'll tell you. It is the rip-offs.! That situation hasn't changed since I was first here in 1966. The student in the dormitory was getting ripped-off then and the student in the dormitory is getting ripped-off_now! It is all well and good to say that most of all of the property lost in "major" thefts from students has been recovered,·but what about the clothing thefts and the other "minor" thefts? What if the property from the latest thefts at Delzell Hall, estimated at over $800, isn't recovered? The point I'm corning to is this in the past seven, almost eight, years since I first attended this college, there has apparently been no viable, functional plan or program instituted or executed by the Administration to curtail dormitory thefts. We all know that wherever there are people there will be thieves, but that does not mean that we, the students of Peru State College; should not expect what is our right - to be able to feel that we may leave our rooms for an evening, a weekend or a · week and be as certain as it is possible iv this uncertain world to find our be!Qngings safe in our rooms when we return. I woU!d like to ask a couple of questions at this point, as they have been asked ti> me by other students: First, where are the new locks and keys for the rooms at Morgan Hall? Morgan Hall girls have told lne they were supposed to be installed over Spring Break. The girls are still waiting. Second, why haven't the locks been changed in the rooms in Delzell Hall where keys have been lost, possibly stolen? I have been told by a reliable Administration source that it is a relatively simple process to change the tumbler barrels in the type of lock used in Delzell, providing new keys ~nd relative security in a rna!ter of a few nours. This last is of special interest to me, as an R.A. has told me that there-is a key missing to my own room. Now, I am not saying that our Adriiinistration is not doing anything to keep aormitory thefts at a mm1rnum, tmt 1 nave been unable, so far, to find out what, if anything, is being done. If the Administration has some effective plan in the works, I appl~ud the effort. If, on the other hand, nothing is being done, then I urge our school officials to do something before we all move out of the dorms. DAVID ALVIS

Peru options for LB1054 The following paragraphs are taken directly from the Legislative Bill 1054: "The proposition for the submission of the proposed amendment shall be placed upon the ballot in the following form: 'Constitutional · amendment to provide for the general government of the University of Nebraska, Kearney State College and Wayne State College under the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska and general government of the other state colleges and technical community colleges under the Board of Trustees of the Nebraska State Colleges.' That the. proposed amendment, if adopted, shall be in force and take effect immediately upon the completion of the canvass of the votes, at which time it shall be the duty of the Governor to proclaim it as a part of the Constitution of Nebraska." .. As the situation stands now, there are four options open for Peru State to consider. They are: 1. FAVOR- Peru State, as an institution, can be in favor of the proposal as it stands. If passed, the bill provides that Peru State with Chadron and the technical community colleges be subject to the Board of Trustees of the Nebraska State Colleges. · 2. OPPOSE - PSC could oppose 1054 as it is currently worded. 3. AMEND - PSC could call for an amendment to 1054 which would also place Peru State under the Nebraska University Board of Regents. 4. IGNORE -;- Peru State could completely ignore· the proposal and place its future in the hands of the legislature.

Ped follows Tuxhorn to classroom Romona Tuxhorn is one of the student teachers the Ped will follow through student teaching. Mrs Tuxhorn is student teaehing in the Nebraska City Public School System. Teaching arts and crafts in senior high, Romona spent her first week observing Mr Beman, the senior high teacher she was assigned to. According to Romona, observing the class and working with students with individual problems, and preparing for her second week has kept her busy. When asked if she has had any problems in her first week, Mrs Tuxhorn replied, "that she was not prepared for actual classroom practice." She felt the "micro-teaching" she had done at Peru was very helpful and felt that there should have been more of this practice. Also, the problem of apathy has arisen in her classes. Romona Tuxhorn will be revisited in her third week of student teaching and her comments will be printed. The second student teacher the Ped will follow through student teaching is Steve Pummell. Steve is doing his student teaching in Sidney,

Iowa, in the third grade. Steve seemed to be ·experiencing more problems than Mrs Tuxhorn, Including the first-morning nervousness he experiencoo, Steve reported he was speechless when first introduced to his students. The third graders had some problems. getting used to him in that he was a new face in their room. There are thirteen students in his room and Steve is thankful for this small blessing. His first week was also spent observing his supervising teacher, Mrs Greedy. Later in his first week, after being bored observing, Steve started taking charge of reading groups. All day Friday his first week, he discussed Weekly Readers with his class. Steve also felt that the rnicroteaching he received at Peru was by far the most important of his education classes and thought it should be stressed more. So far, his biggest problem has . been three little girls who cry a lot and paying attention to third grade feelings which seem to be easily hurt. Steve Pummell will also be revisited in his third week.


Dear Editor: APATHY,APATHY,APATH: Y that's all anyone hears around this campus anymore. Apathy is · a big word of laziness on the part of the students and faculty. It just means that the students of this college are too lazy or complacent to get their cans out and see what is happening. It is easier to scream apathy or that there is nothing intersting going on. There were some gentlemen down from Lincoln to give a woodwind concert. They were promised an audience. There was an audience of, if they were vacation attractions; an ap- lucky, 15.

SERPICO is a different type of police movie. There are no brawling fight scenes, no hordes of beautiful women hanging on any big studs, or is there any million dollar chase scenes. SERPICO is a true story about a real cop. The mov!e opens with Frc,.1k Serpico <Al Pacino) graduatm~ as a New York City policeman. ll 's a big day for Serpico as h.: fulfills his long time childhooc! dream of becoming a cop. He moves into Greenwich Village, grows a beard and long hair, goes out with a ballet dancer and learns what his new job is all about. His first taste <no pun intended) of police ~orruption comes when he and nis squad car partner get to eat for free at a . delicatessen ·for letting the guy double-park while he makes his deliveries. Serpico offers to pay for his meal but is told by his partner all the guys do it and the rookie enjoys his meal as though it were his last, thus losing his virginity of being an honest cop. As he gradually moves up in the department, Serpico feels he can no longer ignore the corruption he sees taking place and decides to spill tlie beans. It takes five. years to get to the right people to tell his story, during which time he is fighting his fellow employees as well as crime. His knowledge finally results in the Knapp Commission. Frank Serpico is a likeable, intelligent young man. His stubbornness to get to the top and .report the department's corruption makes him lose his girlfriend, and keeps him living in fear for his life while fulfilling his lifelong ambition under various disguises. At a time where government corruption is quite common in today's news SERPICO shouldn't shock it's audience. But it is a fitting movie about a man who for after five years of physical and psychic abuse got his knowledge to the public. This was a struggle for a cause Frank Serpico believed in.

_ Women's track team ready for 1st meet Peru State College's first girl's track team is now in the process of preparing for it's first meet of the season. The girls are making ready for the Bearcat Relays on April 19, hosted by Northwest Missouri State University at Maryville. The first year team is under the combined tuteledge of Mary Jo Mier and Ray Czaszwicz. The coaches have 14 girls to work with in rn events. The following lineup is a tentative one for the Bearcat Relays:

"Super Streak" planned today April 1st, "All- fool's Day," is the scheduled date for the "Super Streak." According to a press release from a group in Washington calling themselves: "The Emporer Wears No Clothes," students "on hundreds of campuses acros.s the. country" are planning a giant "streak-m" for today. The group said that the purpose of the "nude-nik dash" is to show that "the President has lost all respect in the eyes of the American people." The group said they wanted to have fun while they were proving their point. "Emporer" has already held one streak-in aimed at President Nixon. At the araignment.of the

"Watergate 7", (Mitchell, Haldeman, Ehrlichman, etc.), one of the group streaked while wearing a five-foot high paper mache figure head of the President. Students from the University of Pennsylvania suggested a similar campaign to take place on the White House lawn today. The event was to be a "streak for impeachment-to lay bare the facts about Watergate and give us the naked truth." The University students, after learning of the idea's fast growing acceptance, quickly revealed it was just a joke. "We were afraid we'd get into trouble," one of the students remarked. "We do have our careers to consider."

Football drills led ~Y Riley By RICK DeKlotz


Twenty days of Spring football drills have been started by new head coach Bob Riley. Assisting Riley with the workouts are offensive line coach Lew Shoff, defensive line coach Marty Dwine and defensive backfield coach Chris Showers. Riley's aims this Spring are to work the players into shape, drill them on basic fundamentals and introduce offensive and defensive schemes to be used next Fall. The workouts, which are running for about l1/2 hours, are leading up to an alumni game to be held Sunday, April 28. Riley believes his main problem next fall will be the availability of experienced players. He has quite a few players

coming up from the junior varisity ranks who along with · incoming freshmen and transfers will hopefully blend wiffi returning lettermen to build a powerful squad. Riley has already had his squad on a weight training program. He was pleased with the esults, saying they improved the speed and strength of many players. The PSC coach is a firm believer that players should be in shape the year round. "In order to play college football successfully, it's almost a 12 month endevor," he said. Some of the players may be moaning and groaning about the workouts now, but if the squad has a good season next fall, they'll be glad they took the time to work hard.

Golf team boasts much experience Experience is the key word that describes the 1974 Peru State golf team. Dr. Erv Pitts had five lettermen returning from last year's squad which amassed a 28-3-2 record. Heading the squad will be senior Guy Lammie. Other returning lettermen are juniors Dave Lammie, Kurt Kent and Rich DeKlotz along with senior Dick Morrissey who is student teaching, but might be available for the District 11 and NCC meet. Newcomers to the team include; Randy Wollenburg, Brad Holding and Ted Johnson. It is hoped by Dr. Pitts that the team will reach it's peak in time for district and conference competition. Last year the 'Cats finished third in the district, and held the runner-up spot to Kearney State in the conference. The district and conference competition was held on Kearney's home course last season. This year the action will be in Fremont, home of Midland College.

Swimming competition to continue this summer Swimming competition for the Nemaha Swim Club will resume this Summer according to Coach Ed Craren. Last Summer the club competed only as a community team, but with membership established in the AAU this past winter, there will be an opportunity for the squad to compete in approximately 20 meets, compared .with 10 last year. The team didn't fare too well last winter, but Craren said development of talent was the main aim of the competition. With the additional meets this summer, it is hoped the team become more powerful: Most of the team members come from Peru, Auburn and Johnson. During the community team meets, swimmers compete in five age brackets: eight and under, nine to ten, 11-12, 13-14 and 15 on up. In addition to the Nemaha Swim Club, Craren is also orgamzmg a diving team to compete out of Nebraska City. This squad will be comprised of members from a wider area than the regular team.

It is impertinent for a hwnble student as myself to be calling for the impeachment of a leader of such a great nation as ours especially when he was democratically elected by a comfortable majority. However I believe Nixon was elected by fraud or out of sheer stupidity on the part of U.S. citizens. He went on to gain prominence through conspiracy which has been spelled out in black and white letters "Watergate." I therefore have little reservation in declaring it is Nixons clearest duty to resign. If he refuses he must be pushed. Recalling the words of Oliver Cromwell in April of 1653, "For shame, get you gone. Give place to honest men." Corifined to the White House, surrounded by toadies who bow and scrape and applaud, Nixon must be impervious to reason. If the news media is correct, our redoubtable President Nixon will be impeached within a year. What is at stake is the credibility of our country and the people who make up the soul of that country. As we near our 200th birthday it is up to the people 'to decide which direction we are to move. If in fact, Nixon is impeached and subsequently convicted who will fill the office of the presidency? We must also keep this question in mind. Gerald Ford, a nice guy with a clean political record could temporarily serve as a bandaid covering the compound fracture left behind by Spiro Agnew until the wounds have healed. The extent of Fords contact with foreign policy was a stint in the armed forces during World War II. This is a crucial pointto consider when determining the extent of Fords knowledge when it comes to foreign policy. In retrospect, rookie presidents have had difficulties in administering effective foreign policy. In 1965 Lyndon Johnson committed the U.S. to the well intentioned but corrupt Vietnam quagmire. In 1961 John Kennedy made the blunderous mistake of invading Cuba. If confronted by another Mid-East powderkeg would Ford by pushed by his subordinates when crucial decisions needed to be made? The domestic pressures in our open society is unique in its policy determination role and hopefully this will signal a downfall. While we are busy thinking of Nixons impeachment it would also be in our favor to think about who will take his place. By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER

A state college in Pennsylvania1reports a campus thief has turned religious and squared things with his conscience and Pennsylvania State University. The ex-student brought back four telephones and offered to make restitution for blankets and sheets he stole four years ago, school officials said. The young man explained he had "become a Christian." This

• • •

cannot be said about the massive robberies recently taken place in Morgan Hall. Similar incidents hav ealso occurred at Davidson Palmer but to a much lesser degree. To date no one has "turned Christian" so to speak and turned themselves in or taken stolen articles back to the original owner. Why, I ask myself w.ould any girl want to steal another girls

LETTER TO THE EDITOR . • The .preceding is a letter written in its entirety with no corrections made that was submitted to the S.G.A. to be publicly read. I think that the SGA is defeating its purpose here at Peru State, and that .it is very inconsiderate of our leading organization in trying to abolish the alcohol law on campus, and putting in more dorm hours so that people who are trying to study can be disturbed. I feel that there are incompetent leaders here who cant see that th'e main goal of

Peru State is an institution of higher learning, and not a playground for bums. The faculty meeting was about how to keep students on campus. The issues the SGA is concern~ with are all getting rid of students. Your making life better for the bwns who are going to leave anyway, and getting rid of the good students because they cant stand it. I find it very disgusting picking up a Peru Ped and finding articles on "alcohol on campus" all over the

panties. This problem must go deeper than what meets the eye. I understand there is an energy crisis going on but a clothes crisis is somewhat hard to believe. What is even harder to believe is being lucky enough to steal something their own size. Can these things actually be happening or am I looking at the world through rose colored glasses?



front page, ect. The SGA concerning itself with such illiterate things as just mentioned, should put more time (or this time) into finding ways to get more teachers which will attract more students in turn. Since you (the president) and your crew do not realize this, I suggest that you read this to them. Concerned Student P.S. He who doth tear this up before reading it to the SGA is a fool himself and i will find out whether or not you did.



RESPONSE . • In response to the "concerned student" who sent the letter to the S.G .A. to be publicly read I must first apologize for having his-her letter printed without permission but since I didn't know who you were I was left with no other alternative. I felt that your views should be aired to more than just the S.G.A. representatives. I congratulate this student for expressing hisher views, I wish more students would show at least that much concern for their academic and social environment, but I am afraid I can't quite agree that working for alcohol on campus and longer dorm hours is turning


?SC into a playground for hoodlwns and bwns. I r~ally don't mind the personal attacks on myself but I feel it was unnecessary to attack the students who want alcohol on campus and label them as "bums." According to a survey taken earlier this year 91 per cent of PSC students are "bums." according to the "concerned student." As far as extended dorm hours are concerned there is a need for some clarification. A change in dorm hours has to be proposed by the dorm council of the respective dorm first. Then it goes to the S.G.A. for approval or disapproval. For some reason the "con-

cerned student" seems to believe that alcohol on campus and extended dorm hours are the only things S.G .A. has worked on this year. If the student was as informed as he-she seems to be concerned it would be realiz'M that the S.G .A. "crew" has put in many hours on such things as teacher evaluations, lobbying for a bigger budget at the state · capital, drawing up an extensive document on student rights and responsibilities to replace the outdated student agreement and a new constitution will be drafted before the year is out.

Saturday, March 30, Neal Park was partly given a new face. Much of the brush and limbs were picked up and stacked for the city to take away. Though a few people were there they didn't just clean up Neal park, they also picked up the vacant stretches between the complex and the campus. These pickup days are to continue all through April and hopefitlly more and more people will show up to make the day more enjoyable and the work go faster. Many of the town's children were out there helping to pick up the brush and limbs too.

Knutsler featured speaker at conference William Knutsler, the famed trial lawyer, and Clyde Bellecourt, president of A.I.M. (American Indian Movement) were the featured speakers at the National Student Association North Central Conference held March 28-30th at the University of Minnesota. Representing Peru State College were president Dean Young of the Student Governing Association and his vice-president, John

Cole. Knutsler, who is defendin~ Wounded Knee defendents Russell Means and Dennis Banks, spoke briefly about the trial and "governmental misconduct" at Wounded Knee. Most of his comments were aimed at the FBI and the late Director, J. Edgar Hoover who he compared to "Himmler." In his concluding remarks he (Knutsler) said there was a

revolution coming and students have a chance to be in the forefront of the changes that will take place. The two day conference featured numerous work shops in such areas as lobbying procedures, unionization, student corporations, student ombudsmen, and the services offered by the National Student Association, which include a

nationwide bookclub, life in-¡ surance, and a travel bureau. According to Dean Young, SGA president, a lot of interesting material was exchanged. Young went on to say that in the past Peru was not a member of the N,SA due to prohibitive annual dues, but those have recently been reduced for small colleges and the S.G.A. will consider future membership.

'Arts and Crafts classes highlight teaching Ramona Tuxhorn, student leaching at Nebraska City Public School, was revisited in her third week of teaching. Ms Tuxhorn is now taking over classes in arts and crafts. She is leaching four periods a day, two in lettering and two in creative stitchery. These projects will last two weeks. Ms. Tuxhorn said that the students are demanding and asking questions a great deal of the time. Ms. Tuxhorn said it was necessary to repeat her instructions several times because the high school students want to get everything right before they start work. The students have tested her discipline. Her instructor, Mr Beman, has helped a great deal in this department. Ramona said that her most difficult problem at this stage of her teaching career is the students are changing personality traits every day. She thinks the students are changing so fast they act differently from day-to-day. A teacher has to adjust to this change. She too, ¡ reports some degree of apathy in some students. Mr Beman has a format prepared for the entire semester. But the day-to-day schedule and assignments are Ramona's responsibility. Mr Beman said he is giving her the

Student files confidential, open under discretion Students point to visitation, alcohol, and open door policies as things over which they have little control. There is one area which governs over a student's private life. The personal files kept on students by various departments. HP ..1ould have some say so over this. Is it wrong to want to know what is put in these files? Who can see them? Do students know these files are being kept?

According to Peru State College administrators, the students' files are kept corifidential. Students are given the authority to determine who may examine them providing they know who has the files and what they contain. It was my findings that a student might have a file kept in a residence hall, the health center, the financial aids office, the registration office, the housing office, the disciplinary office, campus security, and the college in which the student is enrolled. The existence of a file is determined on whether the student! has been involved in some way with one of the above departments. For example, a student may have a file at the Financial Aids office only if he has applied for or received financial aid. Astudent would have a file kept by a residence hall and the Housing Office if he or she is living in a particular dormitory and has violated housing or visitation rules. Individual residence halls keep a record of offenses (such as an alcohol violation). All other information in these files is kept confidential to everyone except the student and the housing staff said Mrs Hallock, housemother of Davidson-Palmer. The files¡contain the same information that is sent to the offending student, meaning the violation, punishment if any, etc. Mrs .Hallock noted that the only way anyone other than the

student and staff members can see the file is with the student's authorization. "Residence halls destroy their files at the end of each academic year. The Housing Office or residence halls might keep a particular file if a student has been given a probation extending into the following year," added Mrs Hallock. In the case of an habitual violator or serious violation such as the destruction of furniture or other Peru State College property, information might be released to Dr. Rosenburg, Director of Student Personnel Services. Mrs Hallock, dorm director, keeps a record of these violations and gathers information on the cases coming to her. If enough evidence is gathered, the student is formally charged with violating a PSC rule. Depending on the seriousness of the matter, the student will either receive a warning letter or a notice to appear before the judiciary board of the dorm council. If a student is not satisfied with the course of the action taken by the dorm council, he or she might want to appeal to the Student Conduct Committee, under the direction of the Student Governing Association. From there, a student would reappeal to the Student Affairs Commission. The Judiciary Board is composed of students living in that particular dormitory, and who are also members of the dorm council. They decide whether a student charged with a violation of PSC dorm rules is guilty or not. If guilty, they levy a punishment on the basis of evidence brought before the board. When asked if a particular student has a file kept on them or whether that student is on probation, Mrs Hallock said she would never reply with a yes or no answer.

Exorcist" ritual expel Is demonic possession life inbureau. Young, t of inwas exon to say vas not a .. due to ues, but .y been eges and ~r future


"The threats of punishments and tortures are not hidden from you, Satan, the day of judgment, the day of pain, the day which is to come like a fiery furnace, in which unending destruction is prepared for you and all your angels. Therefore, accursed and damnable one, pay homage to the living and true God; pay homage to Jesus Christ, his Son; give honor to the Holy Spirit, the

Consoler, in whose name and power I command you, unclean spirit, whoever you may be, go forth and depart frpm this servant of God ... " This is part of the Roman Catholic ritual of exorcism. William Peter Blatty's novel The Exorcist uses_ a ritual closely resembling those lines in a story dealing with a terror know as "demonic possession."

In the story, Regan MacNeil is an 11-year-old girl possessed by Satan or one of his demon followers. Blatty never clearly identifies the spirit possessing her, however, it is stated that she spends hours on end "talking" to a spirit via the Ouija board. It is not an easy thing to be able to talk to spirits this way alone. In my opinion, Regan must have had some

psychic powers in order to do so. Her possession progresses gradually, at first resembling a medical problem. Finally, it gets to the point where she is committing obscenities to herself and others, speaking in a totally different voice, speaking languages unknown to her, and vomiting such unusual objects as hair and pins. Graphically detailed, Blatty treats the

problem with honesty and candor. Father Mel Rempe, PSC "Newman" sponsor says that most priests do not know that much about Satanic possession. Because of the extremely rare appearances of these possessions, very few priests know how to perform the exorcistic ritual.

The pavillion in the Fine Arts Building has been the scene for 9 Art Exhibits this school year. The majority of those shows exhibited the works of Peru State Art-education majors to meet state creditation requirements. The exhibition schedule is set up at the beginning of the fall semester allowing an exhibition to last for about two weeks. Art Ed majors in their senior year exhibit their best works done in Peru's 4-year program. The art ranges from simple pencil sketches to paintings in oils to works in ceramics and sculpture in wood and stone. Intricately knotted sti;ing designs, (macrame), Oriental style and even swirling designs set in what looks like a shag rug comprise a section of the broad spectrum of artistic expression presented in the shows. The next exhibit will present the best works of Seniors Mary Hill and Nancy Wurtele April 8 through April 19. A special Spring Week Art Show will close the season for the exhibits. The artists exhibiting their work in the Spring show will be past and present students of the Art ilepartment at Peru State. The exhibit will begin April 20.

MONDAY, APRIL 8, 19711

Rock musician not overnight success In most cases a musician is not born over night. Curtis Robinson, a freshman music major and guitarist at Peru State became inspired at the age of eight by watching Chuck Berry scoot across the floor playing that good ol' rock and roll. After much pleading his mother finally bought him a Mickey Mouse guitar. At the age of 12 his uncle bought him a folk guitar. For three years he continued to strum out Batman and Peter Gunn (the only songs he knew because he had had no mu~ical instruction up to this point). At 15, he took his first guitar lessons for a year. A lot of hard practicing was entailed before he began playing with a local Chicago band, the "Green Berets". In the latter part of his freshman year, the "Green Berets" cut their first record, "Lord Send Me Somebody". It was released in Chicago and distributed throughout other states. After another year with the same band, he quit and took up practicing again. In the beginning of his senior year Curtis started his professional career playing with his high school orchestra and director in a band called ,"Joe Miller and the Seeds of Life". Their first big gig was behind the local Chicago female vocalist, Jackie Ross. After playing behind such local groups as the "I We Wagers'', "The Deltas'', and the "Love Lites" the "Seeds of Life"

CURTIS 'BOBBY' ROBINSON -One of the most experienced guitar players in the area is pictured above, during one of his several hours of practicing. Robin&on said that he practices at least 40 hours a week. This is, he noted, a reduction from the the amount he practiced while going to high school.

band played as a back up for F,ddie Kendricks who had such hits as "Keep On Truckin" and "Boogie Down". Later on the "Seeds of Life" band had the opportunity to perform behind the "Stylistics" who had such hits as "People Make the World Go Round", "Children in the Nite" and, "Rock and Roll Baby". Curtis then began touring Europe and Jamaica with the "Emotions" who recorded such hits as "So I Can Love You", "What Do the Lonely Do at Christmas" and "Heart Association". On their return the "Seeds of Life" performed behind the "Miracles" formerly "Smokey Robinson and the Miracles". His last big gig was behind "The Dramatics" whose favorites we all know, "In The Rain", "Hey You Get Off Mv 路 Mountain" and "Whatcha See is Whatcha Get". As to why Curtis temporarily terminated his rising musical claim to fame and decided to come to school he said this "First of all my mother wanted me to go to college and second of all I thought I wanted to teach." When asked why he chose Peru, Curtis made this remark, "I was accepted at Illinois State University but too many of my musical friends were going there. I wanted to come to Peru to develop good study habi!S and to find a guitar instructor. Someone that would teach me

more than I know now." Curtis went on to say that he achieved good study habits during the first semester but has been unable to find a guitar instructor. Curtis' final remarks were that "he thought that more dedication was needed in the music department." Robinson is undecided about returning to Peru in the fall. "One of the most important things I have learned at Peru" said Curtis "is to learn to deal with prejudiced people." Curtis is the only musically inclined person in a family of seven, except for his mother who played drums. "I got my rhythm from my mother." said Curtis. For immediate plans concerning this summer he hopes to play behind Nina Simone who recorded the million dollar seller, "Young, Gifted and Black."

10-0 shutout opens season Peru State's golf squad opened season's play with a 10--0 shutout over Concordia in a dual held at Auburn Country Club Wednesday, (April 3). Bobcat Guy Lammie fired a two over par 37 in high winds for medalist honors in the match held to just nine holes because of poor weather conditions.

Peterson discusses Russian I U. S. relations at PSC Mr Val Peterson, former Nebraska Governor, 路 ('47-'53), spoke of the Conference on Security and Cooperation of Europe, the United States and Russia at the Tuesday meeting of the Peru Kiwanis. Peterson represented the United States at the conference which involved 32 European

nations, the U.S., and Canada. He told the Kiwanis that the conference hearlded '路 a "prothetic eagerness for a betterpeace and emphasized the fact that the world's two biggest armies are facing each other on the Soviet-Sino border. At the conference of January of last year, day-after-day was

spent debating an agenda acceptable to the Iron Curtain and the other nations. Peterson said that the Russians emphasized detente. The Soviets called for the expulsion of the United States from Europe, which Peterson feared would mean a Soviet take--0ver. The United States at the same tim~ was

trying to "soften up" the Russians in hopes they would permit people to leave the Soviet nations, free the newspapers and allow emmigration. Peterson said the two superpowers were deadl~ked over the Soviet-Jewish immigration controversy .. He went on to outline the series of border protections the Soviets were using on many of their "friendly nations" borders. The ex-governor stressed that the Russians are able to sell only bulk items, i.e. tractors, tanks, etc. They have inferior housing according to Peterson. Quality merchandise, he said, is foreignmade at high prices. At a Russian embassy dinner one night, Peterson toasted the Soviets, saying: "You're grown~up boys. Why don't you act like an important military power and relax?" One of the Soviets quickly jumped up and rshouted: "We're Communists!" Peterson replied: "You're not Communists! You're路 state capitalists or state socialists, both of which have everything owned by the people and run by the government." "The European people are eager for peace" Peterson said. But there is a danger of wanting peace so badly that we give up our front line of defense in Europe. If we want to be number 1, we're going to have to pay the bill so we can be strong enough to protect ourselves" he said. Mr Peterson did not believe the death of France's President, Georges Pompideau,'Would have a big effect on France's position

because he felt many of the world's leaders were of tlie DeGaullist line. When he left Washington last year, there was no big talk about the Watergate scandal overseas. "Despite their government, the Russian people are as fine as any in the world. They enjoy life and having fun," said Peterson. Peterson, an Oakland, Nebraska native, Wayne State College graduate, school teacher, sup~rintendant, ahd Ambassador to Finland and Denmark spoke about trc military aspects of the summit conference at Convocation period last Wednesday.

Unicameral awards PSC $70,000 Seventy thousand dollars was allocated to Peru State College Monday, April 1st during the budget bill amending session of the Nebraska Unicameral. A 290,418 addition to the budget for the other three state colleges was not mentioned during the discussions of the amendment. The total including the amount given to Peru came out to be $390,418. Although Peru was not a part Kearney's Senator Stromer's original amendment it was added to the amendment by Senator Terry Carpenter of Scottsbluff in an alteration he made from the floor.



Peru splits; wins one doubleheader, drops other Peru State's Bobcats swept a doubleheader from the Tarkio Owls Tuesday afternoon at Peru, 5-2 and 12-11. Mark Fletcher went the . distance for Peru in the opener, fanning eight at the plate. He was assisted by stellar fielding of third baseman, Dave Rombach. Tarkio took a 1-0 lead in the third, but the Bobcats scored two in the fifth and three in the sixth despite the six-hit pitching of loser Jim Clark who struck out ten. John Bender and Wendell Crook doubled in the seventh for the second Tarkio run. In the second game, a real barnburner, Dave McDaniel put four runs across for Peru with a three run homer in the first inning and a second inning single. Greg Sanders also homered for Peru, collecting three RBI's. Nine runs scored for Peru in the first two innings, but the Owls contined to battle and battered Arnie Allgood· for six runs before reliefer Robin Simmons replaced him in the fourth. Tom Froehlich got the save, coming in for Simmons in the sixth. Pete Brechbiel, Owl left fielder, homered twice for Tarkio and catcher John Warner knocked one over the fence with two on base in the sixth. The Bobcats clung to their one score lead by allowing only Ji!Il

Snyder to reach first on a walk then striking out one and recovering two grounders for outs on first. Peru's record moved to 2-2 while the Owls have a 4-6 mark. The 'Cats face Kearney April 6 a doubleheader in Peru, then travel to Midland in Fremont Wednesday, April 10 and To Atchison, Kansas Friday, April 12 for a match with Benedictine College.

Peru State dropped both ends of a doubleheader (March 30) to Concordia, 11-3 and 6-2 to open the 1974 season. Coach Tom Fitzgerald believed the team was not ready mentally to play. "We weren't thinking baseball out there," he said. "I was concerned about our hitting and pitching before the


,, .:-

games, arid my concern was justified," Fitzgerald added. Concordia jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning of the first game, but the '-Cats quickly tied it up du~ing their half of the inning as Bud and Butch Kimball scored after reaching base on errors. Concordia pitcher, Jim Ebers, held Peru to one additional run the rest of the way, while his



team gave him support with nine runs in the final five frames. . In the second game, Peru pitcher Duane Martin got off to a bad start as the Bulldogs' Jim Schroeder and Tim Warneke led off the game with home runs. The Bobcats equalized one of the tallies as Bud Kimball scored after walking. Concordia's big inning in the contest was the fourth as they pushed four runs

across the plate. Peru committed six errors during the two games, but Fitzgerald started six newcomers who had not previously played college baseball. Inexperience was cited.·· as a big factor in the losses, but • Fitzgerald added-"Without a doubt, we're a better team than we displayed."

In the former, the senator would only be a mouthpiece. There also is a number of committees which the student senator serves on. The titles of most of the committees are self-explanatory. The Constitution Committee worked for a revision of the previous student agreement with the college. The Elections Committee deals with a revision of election procedures. The concern of the publicity and public relations committee is to make public notice of upcoming events. Beyond those, there exists committees at the college level of which the president, vice president or any other member may serve on by appointme.nt. These include: Student Affairs Commission, Colleg~ Affairs Commission, and the Presidents Advisory Council. These are the formal areas in which student government is involved.

Student Gov't - what is it? Petitions for candidates for SGA offices shall include the name of only one candidate and the office which the candidate is . Students who are candidat;s · for either the President or Vice President of SGA shall be placed on the ballot as pairs or teams consisting of one presidential candidate and one vice presidential candidate. The 'names of presidential candidates or vice presidential candidates may appear in no more than one team of running mates on the official ballot. All petitions of candidates for SGA officers, members, and class officers must be presented at the last regular meeting of the SGA, prior to the elections, for the purpose of review of petitions and qualifications of the candidates. Exceptions may be made to this rule only by a 2-3 vote of the executive committee which, in such cases, shall act a~ the reviewing body. If at all possible the students of Peru State College should be given the choice of two qualified candidates for the elective positions of President and Vice President. Should the occasion occur that there is only one candidate for either of these ffices a ballot shall be made up.

Student Government elections will be held the third week in April. Since some candidates have already announced their intentions of running for a position in student government and have announced their "platforms," I feel that an attempt should be made to inform the student voters of what student government is and what it is supposed to be. It is all too often that campaign candidates make blatant statements and promises which sound nice to the uninformed voter. Nice sounding rhetoric coming from a kind and sincere looking face shouldn't be the basis upon which any person is selected for any office. Student Government is to a large degree indicative of campus attitudes and their periods. The 60's marked the peak in student involvement and social change. The civil rights movement and the tearing down of the Vietnam cold war was accompanied by the increase in the drafting of young men. The mood in music change was significant in the fact it influenced society. Political activism was the watch word of the times. A great numbe'r of events influenced students and student government. Activism on campuses across the nation has declined sharply. It is refl~ted at Peru State College by a decline in student attendance at such events as concerts and dances. It can also be reflected in student activism in student government. Not all can attributed to a Kent State backlash. These are of course over simplifications, but they are necessary to understand our present system. Currently the S.G.A. student senate functions as the highest level of student government. The student senate is to be representative of all students. The student senators job is to represent not only his constituency but also the student body as a whole in making decisions on matters brought before the SGA. . · There is an age old political question which must be considered when electing representatives. This is the question of whether the senator is to be the spokesman for his constituences

Student Government as a concept is misleading to some. There are those people who have a romantic view of student government and have visions of granduer. Involvement does not seem romantic in that some people look at it fron a Walter Mittyish perspective of the gallant student leaders cn1sading for the masses against the sinister forces of evil that threaten student rights. This is definetely out of perspective. After serving a year in S.G.A. I can say that it is very seldom where there are any clear cut black and white distinctions between good and bad. There is a lot of gray area. Student government and its leaders often become disillusioned when confronted with boring material. To one person a procedure for student disciplinary action, revising the Students Rights and Responsibilities Agreement with the college, updating of all the organizational constitutions and ·redefining their terms of existence, lobbying at the State Capital for alcohol on campus, lobbying for a better budget proposal is boring, to another student senator it may be exciting and very rewarding. This is what student government is all about. There is a definite need for concerned, interested, conscientious students who are willing to work in all of these areas. These are the areas of stu~nt input into the policies and decisions that make up the college governace system. There are of course areas in which student government can or should be working on. There are two levels of activism. The tangible projects of student government and the intagibles. By tangible projects I mean those types of projects which are visible to the student. Such things as faculty evaluations, a college owned bookstore, rap sessions between students and facult~, coed dorm facilities, and a studen_t exchange program. The mtangible items or concerns of the S.G.A. revolve around things not visible to the student. This is in referral to the actual governing process of the college and S.G.A. as a whole. Student input into the committees of the college fall into this category. It is the area of intangibles the S.G.A. should direct its attention. At th.ei~ exists a need for distinctions on a college level as to the J~nsd1cbon of each respective governing body. We need to determme what are the areas of similar concern between the students, faculty and administration. These are decisions which must be made in the governace structure of the college. Theroretically speaking a college exists primarily for its students. Without students the college would be put out of commission. Therefore at least 90 per cent of what goes on around Peru State affects the students in some form or manner. There exists a need for student government to work towards a better concept of "college goverance" i.e.; working jointly with the faculty and administration in the decision of college matters. What effects P.S.C. as a college effects students as well. Again this is a concern of student government. In viewing my experience with student government I believe that given a good group of students working together the students could gain a significantly large amount of input into the ~reas of student concern. Most definitely there is a need for mvolvement., Students must realize what effects them here in their education will influence them the rest of their lives. I feel that the areas of concern for student government will be furthering a concept of "college goverance." I have only scratched the surface. By TERRIE FUNKHOUSER



D-P keeps irons hot at rap session

STAFF MEMBE.R'S VIEW I had occasion to talk to President Pearson in his office last week on the subject of the .dormitory theft and vandalism situation. We agreed that the situation called for a statement by the Administration about what will be done. The following is a prepared statement by Dr. Pearson: "T~e administration is deeply concerned about the thefts and vandalism which have occurred in the dormitories. In an effort to bring this situation under control, new k€ys and locks will be issued and instaUed in Delzell and Morgan Halls. In addition, the criminal division of the State Patrol has been contacted and requested to lend assistance." While in his office I informed him of the alleged mail thefts from the open mail !:>oxes at Morgan Hall, stressing the point that the girls I had talked to were very concerned about the safety and privacy of their mail, as well as the fact that Morgan Hall is the ~only dormitory not having combination-lock mail boxes. I even proposed that the mail lock-boxes in Majors Hall, now unused, be removed and transferred to Morgan Hall. It bothers me that I find

nothing about the subject of providing the mail at Morgan Hall the same protection that it is given at every other hall on campus. It also bothers me that there was no indication in the statement saying whether or not the State Patrol will lend assistance as requested, though it is to be hoped that it will. I can only say what I have said before, as the situation worsens, I hear more and more students at Delzell and Morgan Halls seriously discussing the ideal of mMing from the dormitories and possibly even the college. I have talked with other students who assure me that they intend to inform their legislators of the deplorable situation here and some are· going to write to the Board of Trustees and the Board of Regents. I can only urge the Administration to take strong action to curb the theft and vandalism situation; if only to keep students· from leaving. With a lowered student population, the· Unicameral will surely reduce our already tight budget, leaving' us worse off than ever. Mr. DAVID ALIVIS

President Douglas Pearson and John Letts, campus housing director, subjected themselves to a rather unusual sifoation Monday night at DavidsonPalmer Hall. Dr. Pearson had been contacted about conducting a rap session at the dorm and he agreed to listen to the girl's complaints and answer their questions. The D-P girls kept the irons hot for an hour and a half, asking questions thaf covered a range from the proposed merging of the state colleges with the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, to new curtains for the dorm. The questions were neatly fielded by Dr. Pearson, while refusing to commit himself on anything, seemed to satisfy the girls' curiosity on most points. Questions and answers included:

Women's softball team opens season with loss

Damage Homeruns

The Peru women opened their softball season Saturday, April 6, dropping two games. The PSC team opened against Creighton with the visitors taking the top end of a 17-15 score. The game saw a number of errors and a bad day for the pitchers of both teams as a number of walks stretched the game out. Hits were scarce in the game with Nancy Kottich leading Peru with a triple, a · double, and a single. Deb Scholl also hit well for Peru. The PSC women led most of the way and lost it in the last inning as a number of errors let Creighton score the runs they needed to go ahead. The "Kittens" were unable to muster the batting power in the last of the 7th and Creighton hung on for the win. Creighton now goes with a

PSC places in six events A nine-man Peru State. track team competed with some of the track powers of the State of Nebraska in the 11th annual Kearney State College Relays held April 8. No team scores were kept, but six Bobcats placed in events in competition against Kearney State, Hastings, Doane College and Nebraska Wesleyan. _ Gordon Thompson placed second in the javelin with a throw of 175'6" and also triple jumped 43'3 112" for fifth in that rvent. .Phil Fritz earned Peru's only other second place finish, completing the two mile walk in 16:58.8. Fritz finished behind .Jack Soukup of Kearney who clocked 16:29.5. Both Soukup's and Fritz's times were under the old record of i7:14.2. The distance-medley team of Larry Smith, Bob Lowery, Phil Fritz and Ron Storant placed fourth, and Rob Applegate took fiflh in the shot put with a toss of 44'10" to round out Peru's placing finishes. Paul Kruse accompanied the learn.

1-2 record as Peru stands at 0-2. The second game went early as JFK took.a 13-0 decision with the 10 run rule going into effect after the 5th inning. Errors also played a part in the game although they weren't the big factor. Peru fell fast in this one as JKF's pitchers gve up only two hits in 5 innings. Deb Scholl got one hit for Peru, but wasn't able to advance and Pru fell without scoring. JFK's record now stands at 3 and 1 for the season. Peru looks forward to improvgames. One of the factors that influences the team's success is lack of experience. Peru fielded a young team this year, with only 2 returning .starters from last year's team. The girls have a talented team that a little experience will soon help. "Better things are expected shortly," stated the coaches.

Golfers take third place in invitational . Peru State golfers earned third place in the eight team Fairbury Invitational held April 5 at Fairbury. Peru's Guy Lammie fired a 37-33-70 for medalist honors in the event won by Doane. Doane totaled 302 for the victory, seven strokes ahead of Platte Junior College (309)- and 13 ahead of Peru (315). The only other 'Cat golfer to break 80 was Dave Lammie with a 38-39-77. Team Scoring Doane 302 Platte 309 Peru State 315 McCook 320 Northeastern 323 Fairbury 340 CNTC 349 Haskell 352

cause loss By RICK DeKLOTZ Peru State baseball pitchers found out what damage home runs can cause in a pair of Nebraska College Conference losses to Kearney State, 4-2 and 7-6 Saturday (April 6). The Antelopes' Dave Pratt socked a pair of homers in each game to lead the Kearney sweep. Two other Kearney players also homered. One a shot by Bill Gradoville in the bottom of the seventh inning to win the second game. In the opener, Pratt gave Kearney a 1-0 lead in the third with his first home run. The Antelopes added three more tallies in the fifth, with Platt's second solo shot of the game leading the way. Peru earned it's runs in the bottom of the sixth on a two run homer by Dan Parker. The blast to center field also scored Dave Rombach, who had reached base on a single. After holding Kearney scoreless in the top of the seventh, the Bobcats went down in order in the bottom of the inning to end the contest. In the second game, Kearney took a 6-1 lead after five innings. A home run by Terry Criger started the Bobcats on a five run eruption in the top of the sixth. Following Criger's smash, Butch and Bud Kimball retired on a strike out and a ground out. -.. Rombach singled, Parker walked and Dave McDaniel singled, scoring Rombach. Pat Tynon followed with a single to score Parker. Freshman catcher Tim Macke scored McDaniel on a base rap, and after Greg Sanders walked, Criger earned his second RBI of the inning on a

walk with the bases loaded, scoring Tyon. Peru held Kearney scoreless in the bottom of the sixth, but the 'Cats were unable to come up with any runs of their own in the top of the seventh. In the bottom of the seventh, with one out, Gradoville hit the first Duane Martin pitch over the right-center field fence to end the game. Concerning the games, Coach Tom Fitzgerald said, "We had the opportunity to win both contests. Defensively we played pretty well except for errors. We have a habit of having bad innings where our pitchers will give up four runs." Although the 'Cats seem to be hitting the ball better, Fitgerald

According to a press release from the Admissions Department at Peru State, freshman admissions in the fall of 1974 are up 44 per cent over last year's admissions received by A~ril 1. Gary Hoemann, admissions director for Peru State said that what makes the figures especially noteworthy is that the 1973 admissions figure at April 1 was 30 per cent above the 1972 talley. Last year's freshman class was the largest since 1970. "In a national situation of declining enrollments, last year's increase at Peru State was considered phenomenal," Gary Hoemann commented. It seems "students are looking for a small college and economics dictate that the student be costs conscious," he said. Not all new students appear .at registration, but again, according to the addmissions release; Peru State's 1973 "show" statistics were far above 1the national aver~e. Of 351 new

students admitted, 283, about 80 per cent, registered in PSC's fall 1973 semester. Peru State College's approach to recruiting may be the answer to the above-average statistics. A telephone recruiting campaign is underway for the second year at Peru. Peru State ~tudents are calling area high school students who have indicated a desire to attend Peru next fall but have not yet applied. The team of student volunteers use campus phones in the evening to place person-toperson calls to prospects, offering to answer questions about Peru State. "Talking to a Peru Stater ·is effective," Hoemann said. PSC Basketball Coach Schnauser and Mr John Letts, director of student housing and activities are available as resource persons, Hoemann said, but the Peru students do the real selling. Another sucessful recruiting idea is last year's sucessful

"Mini-bussing" of area high school students to the Peru campus. High school junior and seniors with their counselors were invited to spend a day on campus in April. Schools accepting are Palmyra and Douglas, April 10; SyracuseDunbar-Avoca, Apri} U; Table Rock, April 15; and Auburn and Tecumseh, A,pril 17. Peru State sponsors activities during the year to bring high school students to the campus on an informal basis. Activities include track meets, Business Career Day, Science Career Day, the District Speech and Drama Contests, and the Band and Vocal Clinics. Bob Wernsman, Journalism senior, and Gary Hoemann put out a monthly tabloid entitled Innerviews. Featuring articles and features of interest to incoming students and their parents, the paper is currently being sent to 2,600 high school counselors and students.

Torvald reads the letter, calling Nora irresponsible, stupid,· a criminal, upbraiding her for what she has done, when all she had wanted to do was save his life and keep her dying father from grief and worry. A letter comes for Nora, but Torvald takes it, reads it, and finds that Krogstad has sent back the forged loan papers. .Then he is all kindness, condescention and willingness to "forgive" Nora for what she has done. It is too late, though, as Nora has seen that she does not love him, that he really loves her only as a possession, a doll, not a person, and tells him so, leaving him and their three children in order to find out what life is really like. The play ends with Torvald alone, head buried in his hands, realising that he has lost her, that she is gone from his life, the d?ll 's house in which he kept her. Bill Martin, a freshman with no p,>evious acting experience, played the male lead, Torvald. For a novice actor he did 'surprisingly well in a part ·which had a great nlllllber of lines. No Olivier, Martin did not have the skill and experience to handle the part with much fluidity of wither phrase or movemen~ keeping his voice in l\ very narrow tonal range, and

he spent most of the play either raising an admonishing finger to wave at Nora or grasping his lapels as if his jacket was about to come off. This kept him from developing his character as an experienced actor would have. His best scene was the final one before the curtain in the third act, where he was crying, head in hands, though it seemed at times he was grinning behind his hands .. Diction was also a problem in spots, shoulda's, coulda 's and this's slipping in through the fascade of that supposedly wellbred attorney-bank manager. Barbara Wilkenson, as Nora, certainly fit her part physically, with a sing-song stage voice perfect for the part. Basically fitting the part, she was hampered by a lack of animation in her facial expresi>ion and gestures, her face rarely displaying anything more than joy, apprehension, coquettishness, or a drawn, pained look when turning away from Torvald, Rank or Krogstad. Her gait was not quite adapted to the long Victorian gowns, throwing the lines of the skirting out a bit ungracefully, something a well-groomed, pampered daughter of a prosperous Norwegian father would not do.

A professional drama critic attended Peru State College's opening-night performance of their spring play "A Doll's House." According to the director of the play, Mrs Mary Ruth Wilson, this is the first time any. PSC production was ever been professionally critiqued. Mr Howard Hamilton, an Omaha-based critic, reviews area productions and presents . them in a monthly tabloid in the Hamilton Newsletter. In the April issue of the publication Mr Hamilton writes: · "On April 15th: I attended the opening night of Peru (Nb) State College's "A Doll's House." Continually Scandinavian play-writer Henrik Ibsen uses as his technique rich drama with a light degree of humor, and such was a case here. Nora borrowed fradulantly a large sum of money from a banker - Nils. When· her husband Torwald becomes bank manager, he fires Nils and not to be undone, Nils threatens Nora with the release of her doings. Her husband learns by letter of this situation, but Nora's friend, Kristine goes with Nils and evidently persuades him to return the fraudulant IOU. Even though Torwald has his bank position safe now, Nora wants to start over, and she leaves - leaving of course their three children with their father. The audience

seemed disturbed by this finale, but that is Ibsen. The entire cast involved are worthy of mention. The three youngsters (grade school ages) were Peggy Lou Allgood, John Barrett and Amy Pearson. Cathy Coulter and Sue Coughlin were maids both in good character. Rita Miller (the friend of Nora) and Steve Sharp (a doctor) added individual drama. Dave Bayless (Nils) clearly handled the most delicate drama role of this play and though some of . the audience laughed, Mr Bayless exemplified in a stimulated manner his role's mannerisms - sinister yet sensitive. The highlighters were Barbra Wilkinson (Nora) and Bill Martin (Torwald). Because of an incident on Bill's first entrance, his acting was slow but gained .appreclath:ely during"the'3 acts until the powers of drama were called upon him in the finale. He fulfilled them. Barbara, not to be outdone, moved about professionally and verbally articulated her responses with the comanding qualities of a star. Having limited use . of the Faculty Director Mrs Ruth Wilson due to her recent illness Assistant Director Debbie Hend'. rickson and student Teri Hailer brought to us this difficult drama a desireable appreciation by this writer. The state design and the costumes were fantastic."

Flashback 1973-·74 By MICHAEL KELLY On July 24, 1973, the State College Board of Trustees elected Dr. Douglas W. Pearson to be Peru State College's 20th pr~sident. Dr. Pearson'~ appomtment became effective on August 15: That could very well have been taken as an omen of what was to follow. The 1973-74 school year at PSC was chocked full of such changes. Three faculty members with a combined 53 years of experience resigned this. Mr Jerome Stemper resigned early in tlie year after 23 years of teaching at PSC. On November 30, Mr Jack Mcintire resigned after 18 years. And in early 1974, Dr. C. V. Siegner quit after 12 years. A powerful!. blow for Women's Liberation was struck when Billy Jean King defeated hustler Bobby Riggs. I picked Riggs. It seemed like a good idea at the time. The S.G.A. headed by· President Dean Young went through three vice-presidents. this year. John Billings; Dean Anstey, and John Cole served in the number two position. Home coming brought some changes and these were mostly happy ones. The Homecoming play "How The Other Half Loves" was a fair success. The theme "The Sun Shines Brighter Every Day" seemed to encourage the Bobcat football team as they ·defeated Kearney

State 26-0. This resounding victory helped the 'Cats to win a share. in the NCC crown. The Bobcats ended their games with a 5-5 season, the first such season since 1962. One of the major. factors in the teams success was senior running back Barry Reed. And it really wasn't all that surprising when he was picked in the tenth round of the professional football draft by the Minnesota Vikings. Other seniors recieved recognition, but for more academic reasons. This year 12 seniors were selected for Who's Who In American Colleges. They were : Kay Lynne Albin; Janet Lee Barton; Tom Froehlich· Marv Goergen; Mary Hill'. Stephanie Lange; Linda Sue Madison; Jack Stanley; Bob Wernsman; Carol Wheeler; and PJ Schultz Entertainment at PSC this year was in some cases entertaining, in some cases nQt. L.obo, Jim Stafford, Denny Brooks, Texas, the Downing Brothers, Mule deer . and Moondog Medicine show all performed. There were also five theatrical productions. Besides the Homecoming play "How The Other Half' L<ives" there was "Butterflies Are Free" and "For The Benefit Of Mr Kite," both of which were Student directed. On February 17 and 18, the smash success musical "No No Nan-

· nette" was presented. The show was sponsored by the Music D~t. and directed by J. Hartson Billings III. The dubious success of "A Doll's House" rounded out the year on a doWl}ward note. Even the P.edagogian staff underwent serious change this · year· On Octoberr 30, Ped Editor ~rank D' was officially fired for prmtmg the following ad: Male prostitute available This week only. Please Contact Room 125 at Delzell Hall." Frank was replaced by Rick DeKlotz. By second semester ,however, Frank D'Addesa was back in control of the Ped. March 18, marked the beginning of Deb Barton's editorship on the Pedagogian. Streaking, robberies and vandalism, the resignation of Dr. Frank Bowers, Lucy Giersch as Peru's Glamour Queen, the "bomb" at Morgan Hall the change in class hours: the abolishment of women's hours and the February 25 blackout all make headlines this year in the Ped. Looking bak over the past 8 months, one thing can be said with dead certainty; the 1973-74 school year was · one to be reckoned with. There were good times, and not so good times. Changes for the better and changes for the worse. But the one thing most PSC students facutly, and even administrator~ are most apt to say is "Thank God, it's over!"

·Final Spring Issue '74



''One flew over the cuckoo's nest'' As Managing Editor of the Peru Pedagogian the last nine weeks, I would like to thank a great many people who without them the Ped would still be at press. Special thanks and great appreciation are extended to all the people at the Nebraska City News..Press, Ken Gress, Sue Fitzgerald, Frank D'Addesa, Bob Wernsman, the photographers, the Ped Staff, the issue editors, and the journalism class. A very special thanks goes to Everett Browing, my advisor, and the interested students who read the . Ped. In these last nfne weeks the Peru Pedagogian has undergone some new and different ideas. It was exciting and quite an experience being editor. With this in mind I leave my editorship with these words, "GoOdLuck to the new editors for next year. I hope your editorship will be as rewarding and you will receive as much .cooperation as I did."

'As the issues rolled by'


Managiqg Editor

Mr Alvis: • The cast of A Doll's House wo•1ld like to take this opportunity to respond to your review of the production. In the first place, there was no need to expound in such detail on the plot of the play. It was for limited amount of time we had this reason that.the entire article was so severly edited. Granted,, journalism students realize the imP<>rtance of the Almight Inch, -and how easy it is to rattle on, but there's only so much room in the Ped for any given story. Next it seems you expected too· much from a group of amateur performers. We hate to disappoint you, but Olivier was not available. Instead, Bill Martin took the male lead, and handled it exceptionally well, all things considered. And you didn't have to keep reminding us of his "rookie" status. Had there been more competition at ·the auditions, Martin would still have been chosen. Andy by the way, Mr Alvis - why didn't you try out? Barb Wilkinson has been in numerous Peru productions these past four years. She was again outstanding in her final dramatic role for PSC.' But again, more technical criticism. We're not of Broadway calibre (yet) but by the sound of your review, one would think we should have been. At the risk of appearing to pat ourselves on the back, we can say we were underrated. Take into consideration the numerous problems we faced, rnajor and minor; the. limited amount of time we bade· in which to work; the construction of that efaborate set; and the esprit de col1_>S req_uired to make the show work. After you've done that, try to say we could have done better under t.he same circumstances. Sincerely, The Peru Players

All education majors planning to student teach next fall are to meet in room 300 of the Education building this Wednesday during convocation period, to indicate the school where they wish. to student teach. Assignments will be made according to preference.

This issue concludes another year for the Pedagogian. Without too much complacency, one can easily say that this has not been an easy year. Much has happened · this year to cause . heads to turn and.heacjs to roll. Even the Pedagogian editor Frank D' Addesa was fired this year because of his sense of humor. Now that it's over it's :safe to say "It ain't been·easy." Nearly everyone believes in tlie so called "freedom of the press." But very few peoplereally understand what a trul~ free newspaper stands for. !).. newspaper is supposed.· to print the facts. That's what it's there for. But printing the facts can be quite serious and in some cases dangerous. People hate seeing the names in print if the story isn't flattering to them. "They" say "the truth hurts". "They" are right. Besides bringing the public the facts, and hopefully the truth, a newspaper has another responsibility. And that is to print their opinions based on the facts. These are called "editorials". And they too are dangerous. They tend to make people angry. Angry people tend to react, not to think rationally. An editor can quite literally get himself killed over his written opinion. It's happened before, it nearly happened this year, it will happen again. "They'' say not to print anything too controversial, don't take any chances. . But who are "THEY"??? I don't know who "THEY" are, but I know who they're not. "They" are not the people who want to know "why." Every beginning reporter learns to give the "who, what, where, and when" in his stories. Yet, that's not enough. It's great to tell your reading public exactly what happened, but you need to tell them "why." For without the "why," a newspaper becomes· pages of paper with words and pictures. With the "why It becomes three dimensional, with a brain and even a compassionate heart. That's what it's all about.

Pedagogian's Managing Co-editors for Fall '74 Semester: Terrie Funkhouser <left) and Jeff Walther.

Funkhouser, Walther named editors Jeff Walther and Terrie Funkhouser will be co-editors for the Peru Pedagogian during the fall semester, 1974. Davis Alvis will be news editor and Rar¢y Wolfe is a possible candidate for the as yet unfilled sports editor post. With the first and most importatn priority stated as being the development of a good editorial and news staff, editorsto-be Walther and Funkhouser have traveled to Bellevue and Omaha to talk to high school seniors about' the Ped prograin in an attempt to recruit more new talent. They also intend to institute a mas mail campaign to all Omaha ar,ea schools to recruit for the Journalism program. Jeff, a second semester freshman from Bellevue states his main goa1s as "to establish the Pedagogian as a reputable college newspaper with professional journalistic standards. He intends to concern himself mainly with ~.organization of reporters and

news coverage for the campus and surrounding area. Terrie, a second semester freshman from Omaha, wants to work on the design of the paper make-up and human interest angles. When asked about his goals as news editor, Dave stated that "Straight news reporting and crisp journalistic style are my main goals. I want to work closely with the in-coming journalism students to help develop their abilities to learn and implement the methods and tools news writers must have at their fingertips in order to produce good news stories. I want to make the Ped what it should be-a newspaper, rather than a collection of photos and features. It is the goal of the new editorial staff to have a fullfledged advertising campaign for the fall semester issues. hopefully to be correlated bv the business department in ·conjunction with the journalism department.

Program offers in ·state tution tszng rapes cause out-state campu ·for prevention The National Student Ex- Peru andfor opportunity to become opportunities and vocati According to a CBS news sources, rapes in the United States is increasing by IO per cent, Thousands of women are raped every year. The police can only guess the exact number of women that are raped because an estimated 50 per cent of all rape cases are not reported due to the woman's embarassment. The rapist, according to most psychologists, is a mentally sick individual. Many times he cannot have normal sexual relations with a woman because of his mental affliction. He is unstable and needs to be helped. First he needs to be caught. Catching the rapist is nearly impossible. He will often spend time choosing his victim, and selecting his place. The spot is usually in the dark, and the rapist may wear a disguise, (stocking cap, nylon hose, etc.). This makes future identification difficult to say, the least. The rapist's victim may range from age five to 85. At the-time of the attack she will almost always be alone. The rapist counts on her terror. This makes his objective easier and increases his sadistic pleasure. There are a number of tqings a woman can do to prevent being raped. She can carry a weapon. A handgun, knife, hat pin, rolled-up newspaper or -magazine, umbrella, tear-gas gun, or nail file are some of the most favored-. Or she may take special· courses in self-defense like Judo, Karate, etc. These take time to learn. The rapist may take his victim by surprise and disarm her. In that case, she has only her natural weapons and brains. When a woman is being raped she is in very real danger. Rapisits have often murdered their victims. As a rule, even the most criminal rapist will not kill his victim until after the rape. itself, as he enjoys her terror, disgust, and revulsion. While being raped, the woman will have a chance to save herself. One way is for the woman to begin stroking the rapist and moaning as if she were enjoying the attack. She may then slip her hand down between her attackers legs. Then squeezing his testicles as hard as she can. Most women fear to do this, fearing to enrage the rapist. If they squeeze hard enough they have no. reason to worry, for the rapist will do nothing but moan in agony and lay motionless. -This is another safer way. Most women are shocked when they hear it and say "I'd rather be raped." They need t<l'remember that their lives may very well depend on what they do. The second way to end the rape and save her life is this: The woman begins to act as though she enjoys the rape, she then slips her .... hands about the rapists face, caressing him. Then, all all at once she jams her thumbs into her attackers eyes. By jamming with enough force to break the shell of ari egg she will put out her attackers eyes. His agony will allow the woman to safely 'escape. This method should only be employed if the woman fears for her life. The most important thing for the woman is to remain as calm a:;; she possibly can. The attacker, the rapist has strength, and· surprise on his side. The woman has only her brains and animal instincts to save her. They are enough to save the woman's life. By MICHAEL KELLY

Mon(3y for School? Do you need money for school? There's help closer than many . people think. Donald Miller, in the Financial Aids Office in the Administration Building, may be able to help you. Financial aid is available to many freshmen and sophomore students through·. the basic grants for education program funded through the federal government. The grants are open to post high school students who started college after April 1, 1973 arid wh6 are going to school on a full time basis. The program is based on a formula __that will measure the family's ability to meet the expenses of the Student's education. The grants are available to students who are enrolled in eligible programs at all kinds of approved schools. The grants vary in amounts going up to $800 for .the 1974-7S academic year. Application forms for these grants are available at the

Financial Aids Office from Don Miller. Fill out the form and submit it according to the instructions on it. The student will be notified within four weeks, and the school might be able to help put together a package of loans and grants that will be of further help. Basic grants arc only one source of Federal help that students might be eligible for. Check witlrDon Miller and see if :he can help.

In 1973 the mass media attempted to make the, American public aware of world event happening around them. However, some very interesting facts were either overlooked or never revealed to the American populus. Come with me and take a look at '73 in Retrospect. .American dogs produced 1,277 ,500 tons of feces and 3,285,000,000 gallons. of urine. .The average human being swallowed 730,000 times. .A couple in Florida traded their three month old baby boy for a 1971 Chevy. .Fred Flynn and his wife Rita of Joliet, Illinois sold their 12 year old daughter to Harold Miller of Oak Park, Illinois for $30,000. .The Womens Christian Temperance Union reported that the number of bars in the U.S. had dec)ined in recent years but admitted that there were still in operation more .bars (412,149) than churches (328,689). .The worlds flagpole sitting record was shattered by 20 year old Kim Morin of Tacoma, Washington, who spent 253 days in an eight foot by 11 foot camper perched on top of a pole. She said she really didn't mind being up there that long because her camper was equipped with a color TV, a stereo and a' telephone that "never stopped ringing." Along with interesting facts '73 left memories of talented people whose l\ves were cut short .

Student rights perused The Constitution Committee under the direction of Scott McKercher, chairman, Terrie Funkhouser, and John Cole all members of S.G.A. have been in the process of reconstructiong the present student rights and responsibilities agreement. The purpose of the agreement is to clarify the responsibilities a student has to the college and the responsibilities the college has to the student. In the past the student agreement was vague and· unclear in many areas concerning student rights and they were either overlooked or needed clarification. In the previous one page document there was still references made to such outdated practices as panty-raids. . No guidelines had been set up for the student to use as ' referen~e when they had a complaint. They had no idea where. to go. In the case of a student being put on probation and the course of action taken against him-her, was unsatisfactory, he-she did not know where to appeal such action . The constitution committee has resolved some of the mysteries a student had about where to go to make compfaints or appeals in only given case. Some of the important items outlined in the new agreement will be

Nebraska Hills teach .geology students Instead of learning from blackboards and books only, twelve Peru State College students "dug" what they learned from the open sides of Nebraska hills .. The student-geologists were in a "Rocks and Minerals" class at the school from March 22 to April 8, holding three consecutive Saturday-field trips in Southeast Nebraska quarries as the body of the course. The three "digs" were outside Wymore, Nehawka and Auburn, Nebraska. The field trips were preceeded with an introduction to Nebraska geology the Friday night before the first .Saturdaymorning hunt.

Ten of the stuqents and Williams crammed into a station wagon and "high-tailed it" across the quarry to the place where the rare specimens had just been uncovered. When the class reached the site, an area like the lunar landscape greeted their searching eyes. Massive limestone boulders littered the quarry floor. Pitting the collosal lime blocks were crystals larger and more brilliant than tlie first find. After a flurry of hammering picks, each student was living proof of novice-exhuberance.

Peru state was host to Denny Brooks when he appeared in concert April 23 at 8 p.m. in the college auditorium. With only a few minutes delay, Brooks was on stage giving the audience his rendition of "Can I Touch the Rain." He then told the audience about moonshine whiskey in the song "Light of Evening Outshines the Sun." His third number, Denny said, was played on the radio and recorded. His songs were accompanied by a guitar and piano. Brooks had a little trouble getting to Peru. Jie came down Iowa 29 and found many of the bridges out on the Nebraska side of the river. He gave several comedy songs, one of which was about a young man falling in love in a bar. Another one was about his girl Virginia from Barney's Golden Missile. Denny created one of the characters of the cartoon screenplay for TV called "The Point." He sang Obleeo's song "' about the dark forest of no point. Audience participation was asked and received on a rendition of "Goodnight Irene." Denny told the audience about story about Hezekiah Jones, as told by Lord Richard Buckley. After two encores, Brooks ended the concert with the song "Never Ending Song of Love."

The picnic line was four people deep about 5: 15 in the Oak Bowl. The group of bodies managed to get into two lines of confusion going by the table with the plates, napkins, forks and spoons after passing the one lunch ticket and money taker . The cold beans, potato salad, potato chips, cold hot dogs and warm sloppy joes were on two lines of tables which the lines of hungry students went down in four rows. The eating area was the cement seating area giving the event a non picnic touch. Although cold, the meal was a bargain at today's prices.
