Currier's Suggestion Appoints Wheeldon Senator . ByFRANKD'ADDESA The validity of Susie Wheeldon as Student Governing Association senator representing Davidson-Pal1J1er Hall was resolved on, Wednesday, September 11, when no other petitions for the 'office were submitted. The controversial topic was solved on the suggestion of SGA sponsor Mike Currier which would now allow President Amy Walsh to appoint Ms. Wheeldon to the position. Wednesday was the deadline for the 50 signature petitions from anyone who was running for an SGA office. The controversy began when President Walsh notified Ms. Wheeldon that she was elected dorm representative without the election being under the supervision of the SGA. The election was also called invalid because petitions were not submitted to the SGA prior to the election and because the election wae not held when elections of that nature are usually run. Ms. Wheeldon was elected on April 11 of last semester while the election was to be held this September 18. · Mrs Susan Hallock, resident director at Davidson-Palmer hall, charged that the SGA constitution does not clearly state the rules of an election of that nature. At last Tuesday's SGA meeting Mrs Hallock ex-

pressed her desire to solve the problem and suggested the wording in the constitution on elections should be revised. SGA Vice-President Dennis Ehmke volunteered to work on revising the constitution on elections and will report at tomorrow night's meeting. The problem was threatened to be solved at one time during the meeting. At the beginning of the meeting Senator Ray Boeche motioned that the session .end at 7 o'clock, the motion was seconded by Senator Roland Barrett.· A vote was held and it was unanimously decided that the meeting end in an hour. However, before the vote was taken Senator John Robertson suggested and it was approved by Boeche that the meeting end only if all important matters were om of the way. After ,minutes of indecision Mr Currier reminded Boeche this was added to his motion before the unanimous vote was taken. Both Boeche and Barrett were excused from the meeting at 7 o'clock and Boeche volunteered to look into ways of shortening future sessions. Another issue discussed at the meeting was the Student Center Board coming up with the Homecoming theme permanently. Vice-President Ehmke made the motion and it was carried unanimously.

Peru Marching Band Is Reactivated marching band was in the late 1950's. Edris said the bandsmen registered know how to march but perfection is needed in the areas of high step marching (eight steps to each five yards on the football field) cornering, right-left facings and cadence. Agift of 90 blue and white twill band outfits from the Plattsmouth school system give the. PSC band a definite advantage

The Peru State College Marching Band, clad in blue and white, will be spotlighting such events as the Bobcat grid games, pep rallies and concerts this fall. Dr. David Edris, new rnilsic staff member will direct the newly reactivated band. Although stage band, concert band, and other instrumental groups have been continuous throughout in the college's 108 year history, fne most recent

Dr. Edis said, "We may have some problem with sizes, but with the 90 uniforms plus several partial sets, we hope to be able to fit everyone." Dr. Edris hopes to build a highly polished marching band .with a defined performance and a touch of flair.

He then enrolled at the University of Colorado and ipvested the next nine years and $45,000 in achieving his degree. Dr. ·Carnealy has hopes of publishing his dissertation, written on Oswald v.on Wokenstein, a German composer of the Middle Ages, and recovering at least part of his expenses.

For my first coltimn I was going to write about how my confidence in the judicial system of this country was restored over the summer and finally recaptured on August 9 when Richard Nixon resigned. I was going to continue by praising our new president, citing how he has displayed open-mindedness and honesty throughout his first month in office. Then I was going to comment on the guts he displayed in favoring some sort of amnesty in a speech at the VFW convention. I can't think of an audience where he could have received a less favorable reaction. I was going to write about all of these feelings of mine until I learned Mr Ford pardoned Nixon from the first day he took office in 1969 until the day he left the White House, , Now there are doubts in my mind about our new President. Doubts like the ones on my mind when Nixon moved American troops into Cambodia in the spring of 1970. Doubts like the ones I've had two years ago when the break-in was first revealed. Doubts about Mr Ford's actions which for a month led me to admire him. My doubts turn into questions, many questions. Does Gerald Ford really believe Nixon should be put above the law? What was Ford thinking about when he decided to pardon Nixon? Does Ford really care about the war resisters and deserters (I think he should worry about those missing in action first) or was that interest in amnesty just used to prepare the American people fQr Nixon's pardon? Was there some sort of deal set up between Nixon and Ford1 Why did Jerald F. terHorst really resign? Why was Special Watergate Prosecutor Leon Jaworski left out of the pardon decision? My job as a journalist is not to ask questions but to answer them. There is now one question I or anyone else will not be able to answer. Last November 17 Nixon said " ... people have got to know whether or not their President is a crook; well, Iain not a crook." The question of whether or not Richard Nixon was guilty will now never be answered, since he was never proven guilty his pardon leaves him an innocent man. Many statements · he has made while in office I had doubted. Some have turned out to be lies. Frank D' Addesa

During all the summers of these three years he attended silmmer school · at Chadron and this summer earned his Master of Science Degree and applied for a job to Peru. He and his wife like living in Peru very much, but have not decided yet whether or not they will settle here permanently.

Mr Wp!iams, an employee of Broughton Food Services, (the company which handles food service at Peru), was sent here by that company to take over the food services at Peru. Mr Williams said that he liked the town of Peru and that he thought the college was a nice little place. He said he hasn't had any complaints about the food but it wouldn't bother him if there were. Mr Williams and his wife Ann came to Peru from Clarinda, Iowa, where Mr Williams was thehead of food services at Iowa Western Community College. He also brought with !iim his four children, Sheryl, Tim, Mike and Tammy. There aren't many things about the facilities he'd like to change, but there was one thing. Mr Williams said, "I wish they would put all the equipment in the kitchen in good working order."

Midland Takes Opener 31-12 By LARRY KOSCH The Peru State Bobcats traveled to Fremont, Sept. 7, for the pigskin season-opener against Midland College Warriors. First-year head coach, Bob Riley, saw his wishbone-oriented Bobcats go down in a 31-12 defeat by a solid wishbone-cracking Midland defense. After a scoreless first quarter, Midland lir up the scoreboard with a 35 yard field goal. The kick came with 2:44 elasped in the second quarter. Recovering a loose pigskin on the Midland 27 yardline, Peru State moved in for their first TD. Jim Ford, a running back, scrambled for 19 yards around right end for the score. The PAT failed and it was 6-3 with 5:09 left in the first half. With 58 seconds left on the clock, Rodney Carter, Peru's quarterback, ran a 2:7 yard

Peru State was allowed only one first down in the second half and could not get beyond their own 35 yardline until late in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, the Midland wishbone offense was off and running with their inside-outside ground attack. Two TDs were scored on consecutive drives of 73 and 59 yards each to lead 16-12, goinl$ into the fourth quarter. After Midland scored on a 67 yard march to lead 24-12 in the fourth quarter, Peru State staged their only scoring threat of the second half. Aided by a cquple of 15-yarders against Midland, Peru State moved the pigskin down to the Midland 38

Peru J.V. Beaten The .Peru State College junior varsity football team lost their game with Midland last Monday night by a score of 14-0. The contest looked like an opening game with tough looking defenses punishing the unsure and spotty looking offensive teams. The Bobcat offense got off to an unimpressive start and just couldn't put together what they needed for a score. Greg Sprague received the starting nod as the hometown signal caller. In the second quarter, Sprague was replaced by Harry Phillips, but the team didn't

seem to have its timing beneath him either. The P .S .C. defensive squad was hitting hard to hold the spotty Midland offense. Two defensive players deserving mention are linebacker Ken Handy and safety Ken Brown who snagged three interceptions. Midland's offensive punch came from Steve Monson, and quarterback Chuck Micek who both scored touchdowns for the cause. The p_Qint-aftertouchdowns were both kicked by Ed Wathen.

Both runners time was recorded as 14:47, which PSC Coach Ron Jones described as a "real good time for the first meet." Peru's best was Ron Storant, who finished third in 15:00. Storant broke out early and led the field for the first mile. However, he fell back as Wellerding and Cregeen came on strong in the final two miles of the three mile course. Northwest

Housing Trends Over the past ten years or so there has been a national trend among college students to live off campus, rather than in the college residence halls. · This trend is now in the process of reversing itself, making it more fashionable to ··live in the dormitories. The question considered in this article is t~is - has the trend to return to college residence halls hit Peru yet? The answer to this question, judging from the information at hand, is no. In the two halls that were checked, it was found that less than 10 per cent of the residents were of either junior or senior standing. A school policy, here at Peru, states that only upper-classmen may live off campus (except, of course, those residing at home). This accounts for the rest of the junior and seniors. Why don't upperclassmen want to Jive in the dorms? John Letts, Director of Housing, said that he felt the reason for the ·urge to live off campus is to acquire more freedom because they feel too restricted in the halls. Florence Johnson, dorm motber at Clayburn-Mathews Hall, agreed with Mr Letts and added that they also want liquor in their apartments and 24-hourvisitation ri@ts f?r men and women. Why don't the,y,return? That is

a question that can only be answered by those who left. One said, "I tried the dorms lastyear and I'm not goin~ to put up with them this year.' That student also stated that his biggest gripe was.the noise factor. Others say they like the freedoms that living off campus holds for them. "Why live in a place where you're restricted more than you were two years ago, when you were living at home?" When the upperclassmen will return to living on campus seems to some to be a matter of whenever the trend reaches Peru. Others say it is a matter of finance.

Dr. Douglas i,>earson, President of Peru State College can be at times a very hard person to find. For an issue of the paper we wanted to do a story on the Faculty-Administration meeting on September 3. Our information was to come from Dr. Pearson. Our reporter went in on Friday afternoon at 1: 00 o'clock to set up an appointment with Dr. Pearson. His secretary informed the reporter that he would not be back in his office until Monday morning at 8:00 a.m. He was to have a meeting at 8:30 Monday morning, so the reporter was told he could either talk to Dr. Pearson just before or after tl\e meeting. At8:00 o'clock Monday morning the reporter was there to get the story for the paper. Dr. Pearson had not shown up yet but his secretary was sure that he would be in before long. After a 25 minute wait, Dr. Pearson still had not shown up yet~ The reporter asked the secretary when he would be in for sure and she still insisted that he would be in in just a few minutes; or else he might not come in at all; she never could be sure what he was doing. So the reporter went back in for one last attempt to try and corner Dr. Pearson. Dr. Pearson should make it a practice to let his secretary know where he may be found at any given time. In case of an emergency it would be only through sheer luck you reach him. If someone important wanted to talk to Dr. Pearson they deserve a little better explanation of Dr. Pearson's whereabouts.

Bugged Complex Some people can make a big thing out of even the smallest problems. Such are the complaints about the bugs, especially crickets, at Centennial Complex. There have been a few complaints about the bugs invading of the Complex but everything possible is being done to control them. The bugs move in over the summer when everything is shut . down, according to ClayburnMathews house mother Florence Johnson. Once a month an ex- · terminator is brought in and after the first few weeks the bugs are practically gone. It's , the same situation that you get . .anywhere, according to her. The bugs are no big deal at all in the upper floors but can be a : nuisance on the @ttom floor. Aside from a few crickets though, there is really no worthwhile complaint at all. Mrs Johnson wishes they would write about something worthwhile such as the movies that are offered for the people hi the complex once a month.

IDIOSYNCRASIES Little does anyone realize that the original pattern for the children's "teddy bear" was provided to us by an Australian ·naiive known as the "Koala". Theodore Roosevelt, however, suggested that the idea was adapted by the grizzly bear cub. I wonder if that's why they gave him the nickname Teddy. · It would be fascinating to own a tailless, blue-gray animal, that was quickly recognized by its large, bushy ears and prominent, rubbery, black nose. Of course to contribute to the koalas survival you would simply plant dozens of eucalyptus trees, on which they live and eat. An average koala reaches the length of 34 inches and weight of 30 pounds, making it easy to carry with you. Did you know that the mama koala carries its cub in her pouch until it becomes an inch in length and then it automatically attaches itself to the mama's back. In four years they reach their full growth and live to be about 20. The reason I have gone into such detail is that it seems there has been a rumor that there may be a dispute arising to change the school mascot. Seeing how the koala is so cuddly andfurry and cute and tiny, I have only one suggestion if such a quarrel does occur. How does the Peru Koala Bears grab ya?

Switch In Offense Means Applejack Win Since the Wishbone didn't fulfill Coach Riley's victory wish at the Midland game (a 31-12 defeat), a switch in offenses was made. The Flexible -I offense was introduced and worked on in preparation for the annual Applejack Festival Bowl affair· with Tarkio College.

Gxm Program Up For Approval Coach Roger Schnaser has taken his proposal for an open gym program to the city council for approval. The program would be supervised by students rather than faculty members, as has been the case in the past. The council's approval was needed because one of thE stipulations of the proposal declares that the program would be open to the community. Thus, the council would pay a portion of- the cost of keeping the gym open. A schedule for the weekend program, now under consideratior., will be announced at a later date. The pool schedule this year is expected to coincide with the open gym. Anyone interested in working as a lifeguard is asked to contact Dave Lainez. ASenior Lifesaving or W.S.I. certificate

Joh Placement Here To Serve You their school nas available. To get use out of the job placement bureau you must go see them. They will be glad to help you fill out a form that they will send to the University of Nebraska, Teacher Placement Office. The two weeks later you will start receiving their Bulletin on teaching jobs that are available. While you are there they will help you fill out a resume and put it on a Mag Card.

The interviews with businesses and schools who come to this campus are posted on bulletin boards on campus. H an interview is desired an appointment should be made. Permission must be granted from an instructor before he-she is used as a reference. Stopping by the office periodically can make the difference between getting an interview and not getting one.

Student Center Fees in to be paid on the Bond. This includes such items as rent paid for use of the Bob-Inn and other rooms used by non-student organizations, an example is Kiwanis Club. Another source of income is money from pin-ball machines, and now, this year, our beloved pool tables. Why new "coin" pool tables? Our old pool tables were free, but because of the mis-use of them - playing is difficult on ripped tables and broken cues-we needed new ones. And coin pool tables are used in everyone of the other three state colleges unions and yes, even the Great -u:N.L. student union has coin pool tables; we are behind the times, the University had had coin machines like ours, for the past five years. These tables paid for upkeep and maintenance, not

just the new e.aint io_b. Mr Letts, head of the s.C. Board, said, "The thirty dollars that the students pay goes into salaries, utilities and main" tenance." Last year, Mr Letts kept a record of students who used the game-room, average was six a day. Which is tripled this year, if not more. One thing I'd like to point out for students who are here on the weekends - the game room is open from 12-10:00, Sunday and the Student Center is open 1210 :00 on Saturday (note: BobInn is open 12-2:00 on Saturdays). . If anyone has any more questions, you can look it up, and student who wishes to know where all the money went, has the right to look -if you have the time. I wish to thank Jim Lennerton, Mr Letts, and Mr Gress for their time and help.

Why isn't there going to be an annual this year? Why can't the journalism majors publish the annual? I'm a senior and there won't even by an annual for my last year. Why isn't there any money for a yearbook? I sure see a lot of money contributed to other projects which aren't even as worthwhile. . . . These are only a few of the questions and comments I've been hearing around the PSC campus lately. As editor of the 1974 Peruvian I feel some comments should be made regarding the yearbooK publication. Some of the problems facing the Peruvian at the opening of the 1973 school year were: no money appropriated by the school, lack of a sponsor, no staff or photographers, and an over-all lack of concern on campus. Several students did feel there should be an annual and so we decided to endeavor to publish one. President Pearson assisted us in finding sponsors Mr and Mrs William Hallock and in presenting fund-raising ideas. Pictures were taken by Rich Hinkel and Mr J. D. Levitt. Due to a late start, however, many pictures were almost impossible to obtain. Problems were also encountered in setting up pictures due to a lack of interest or conflicting schedules. -.. Money-raising projects were planned. Advertiser were contacted and yearbooks were soia. Au 01 these things take time. I often wonder how many I

Dar Editor: Are students living off campus eligible for Food Stamps? If they are, what are the requirements and process to follow? Dear Reader: yes, students living off campus are eligible ·for Food Stamps, but as you mentioned there are certain requirements besides the process of application. These requirements are three: 1) Must live in a household not a dormitory, (in other words off campus.) 2) Cannot be on the work-study program. 3) Economical resources must be limited. If the conditions of the applicant are the above, then he or she shall proceed to fill the necessary for ms, these forms will contain information such as: appl i cant's income, economical sources, life conditions, etc. The forms will be submitted to the Welfare office where after a long and deep study the officers will decide whether or not the a pplieanlis in true necessity of receiving Food Stamps.

people realize all the work involved in both the Ped · and the Peruvian. More important is the enormous amount of work left up to a few responsible individuals. Weekly meetings were held and layout was explained, but still some of the sections were left incomplete or not even started. Two or three people simply cannot assemble a yearbook satisfactorily, especially at the last minute. I certainly don't believe one person should be left with the responsibility of the entire yearbook! There are many aspects of the 1974 Peruvian I am quite pleased with, but there were those things which time and circumstance could not permit. Pictures I could not obtain I tried to compensate for by at least mentioning the individuals in print. I realize there will be complaints about these items, but I feel we did the best we could considering the situation and the many problems we had to meet. I hope you will take these problems into consideration when the yearbooks arrive. The 1974 annual is still facing a financial crisis because not all the money was rai~d. There will be some extra books available for those of you who still wish to purchase one. I would like to thank everyone who helped me make the 1974 Peruvian a reality. Special tribute is given in the yearbook to all who made it possible. BOBBI THIESFELD

Rumor of the week: The administration is currently looking into the possibility of buying several school buses so students would not have to be away from home for more than a day at a time.

Last Wednesday, September 25th, only ten seniors showed up for the Senior Class Meeting that was held in the Fine Arts Auditorium. I don't know if it was due to· the fact that the students didn't care or whether they just had better things to do. However I don know that we, (the seniors) are going to have to show ·some type of interest or involvement if we want to get the show on the road. This will be the purpose of the second senior class meeting to be held once again in the Fine Arts auditorium on Wednesday October 2nd, during convocation period, which starts at 9:40 a.m. Will all senior class members please be there at this time. In the September 25th meeting the decision was made to set dues at one dollar for each senior so I request that the money be brought at this next meeting. CHARLES JACKSON Senior Class President

Due to a limited amo;mt of time before deadline, Peggy Griffith of the Washburn Review was not given credit for a story. Personal apologies are in order. The Pedagogian staff apologizes for any unpleasantness caused by the editorial concerning the availability of the administration which appeared in last weeks edition.

Reporter Retracts Statement The purpose of a journalist is to report the news and facts to the reader. To reveal the good and the bad of all situations so the people can take whatever action they wish to remedy a situation. But as a first year journalist I've found that you must be very careful about what, and why you print something. In my first few weeks as a journalist I found that it is ·sometimes more profitable to back out of fight than to slug it out. When you don't have the . time, or the ability, to fight you have to give in and admit where your wrong. Although a retraction was due, the President of the college for an article that was printed in my name it was only one mistake. Enough research had not been put into the story; which was written at the last minute to give enough material for the paper. But that doesn't mean that if something is brought to our attention that the students feel should be changed that it won't be investigated and reported about. Even though I was wrong once I still intend to inform the students of situations that should be looked into. To function as a paper you have to be able to print the good and the bad; no matter what the consequences. If the students will back us in our comments it will be easier to get what we want accomplished. As a reporter for the school paper it is my responsibility to write a retraction for an article I wrote for the last issue of the Ped. In the article I wrote about a bad e~perience I had trying to find Dr. Pearson, the school president. Later it was brought to my attention that the· President·had undergone a very hectic time when I was trying to reach him. I failed in my responsibility to

arrange a conference with liiin which he said he would have been happy to give me. Inspite of my own failures I wrote an editorial for the paper that made some insulting accusations toward Dr. Pearson. I understand Dr. Pearson's outrage at these accusations and would like to make this public apology for my article and for my conduct in a conference with him. It was very unprofessional for me to lose my temper and it showed disrespect for the President .

- Going to the funerals of acquaintances that take up strenuous jogging after 50. - Ladies who bleck ac- · cess to the supermarket checkout counter with their shopping carts while they gallop around collecting eight more items they remembered at the last minute. From these and. other trials of fleshl and spirit, deliver us, Amen.

Peru Shuts Out Wesleyan 27 -0 Dale Patton, 210-lb. freshman tailback from Springfield, Ohio, provided the offensive punch for Peru State in the 27-0 shutout of Nebraska Wesleyan, September 21. He scored one TD, two field goals, and three PATs to account for _15 of Peru's 27 points. Peru State struck paydirt very ·· early inthe first quarter on a two yard plunge by fullback Ignacio Martinez. The PAT by Patton was good and the Bobcats led 7-0 with 10: 20 left iii the first quarter. The second quarter of the. Peru-NW game was field-goal kicking time for Patton. With 5: 35 left, a 39-yard field goal attempt by Patton was barely good. It was_ a near duplication .of that missed field goal in the Tarkio game, when the ball bounced off the cross-bars and fell short. Except for the fact that this attempt had a little more boot behind it. The sailing pigskin bounced off the crossbar and went throiigh for a three-pointer. With 1:41 left, a second FG was added to Peru's score tally by Patton on a 29yard kick. And Peru State led 13o, going into the dressing rooms at halftime. As the two teams and their •coaches discussed the secondhalf strategies, the new MARCHING BOBC~T BAND entertained the home crowd with their precision marching and their music-playing talent.

Earn Extra $ By Officiating For anyone caught in the college money crunch, several Peru State students may have found a partial solution. · These students are earning their extra dollars by officiating for area high school athletic contests. The pay isn't bad and in most cases the work is only moderately hard. The qualifications imposed on these officials are relatively few. They pay a fee, graduated according to sport, taken an open book test, attend a rules interpretation meeting and they are all set, if they pass the test. The tests and all of the rules meetings are conducted by the

Nebraska School Activities Association, which keeps records of all registered officials available for all approved high school sports. · The sports that_. Peru State students officiate range from volleyball, football, basketball and baseball, to wrestling matches. Some of the PSC officials are Patty Johnson, Gail Harmon, Denny Williams, Dave Lainez and Ted Harshberger.

C.C. Team Undert'ew Direction The '74 cross country team is under the direction of Ron Jones, former Bobcat harrier and resident of Auburn, Nebraska. According to Coach Jones great things can be expected from Ron Storaut, a sophomore from Humboldt -and Bob Lowery, a junior out of Superior. Making up the rest of the team will be Dennis Brady, Peru; Ralph Arnold, Falls City; Carnell, Omah'i:

lntramurals Offered An almost endless number of intramural events and toiir-. naments are being scheduled for the upcoming 74-75 school year mixed tennis doubles, bowling and badminton are just to name a few. The tournaments will be announced prior to the event and registration will be on a sign up basis. A place kicking contest, along with one-on-one basketball, freethrows, softball, golf, and a broom hockey tourney will be forthcomil;lg if enough interest is shown.

Dear Editor: Do you know of any places nearby where students could go horseback riding? 'Dear Reader: The n9arest place to Peru where horses are available for rent is in Buffalo City, about five miles south of Nebraska City. It belongs to Bill and Erma Stites and is open only on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. In addition to supplying horses they also have a trail where you are to ride. The charge $2. 75 an hour which is the time that it takes you to ride this trail over and back. If a considerably large group of people are interested in going horseback riding, special arrangements can be made concerning the fees. Letter to the Editor: Due to the fact that Majors Hall has not been in use since the 1972 school year why is it still featured in the student handbook which is sent out to all prospective students. Ethically speaking isn't this in some way cheating the students into thinking this ·is a bigger campu~ than· it really is? WENDELL HENDERSON Letter to the Editor: While eating in the cafeteria last Tuesday afternoon my social science book was stolen from the table sitting right outside the door of the lunchroom: It really is a shame that a student can't take out 20 minutes to go eat lunch without having to lug their books around with them or have a fool proof briefcase to ward off possible thefts.

I feel when students reach the age of responsibility they should know the difference between right and wrong and things like this should not have to happen. RUTH MINSHALL



I think its about time somebody stood up and said something good about exPresident Nixon and his predisessor Gerald Ford. In an issue of the· Pedagogian columnist l4:ak D' Addesa attacked Presiden( Ford's -decision to grant Richard Nixon on unconditional pardon for his part in the Watergate· affair as an act similar to that of the Watergate.break in. It surely can't be all that bad. I think that Mr D' Addesa's attitude goes along very well with the attitude of the whole nation that the president should do:... only the things people want done. One of my greastest fears is almost realized in this attitude; the fear that the President of the United States will be turned into a Congressional puppet. Someone used only as a tool to pass the legislation that Congress wants. Is that what President Nixon retired his office for. To see the Preisdency turned into an office of honor not po!fer, like the Queen of England. Already people are talking as if they want to impeach Gerald Ford because he is doing what he thinks is right. Don't you think Nixon admitted his quilt in retiring and then accepting his pardon. Do you think ft is necessary to keep attacking a man whose emotional state is already such that he has lost his will to fight. Why can't we just leave people alone? Must.we kick a mann when he is down? Why don't we just let a man spend his last few years on earth in peace. We attacked Nixon without mercy for all his faults but we seem t-o forget the good points of the man. Nixon descalted the war in Viet Nam while two presidents Kennedy and Johnson, escalated the war to great proportions. Nixon established better relations with China and Russia opening new doors for a chance at world peace. Now we attack Gerald Ford for doing what he thinks right. People were disillusioned to the fact that just by c~anging Presidents everything would be alright. They don't like the fact that Gerald Ford does what he: thinks right now what pleases the country. For a better America, we need to start with the people, not the president. KEVIN PERKINS

IDIOSYNCRASIES I know that each arid everyone of you knows the.true identity of a guppy. It's a fresh water fish, usually rasied at home in an aquarium. Well, I must tell you a story of,a lady I new who once told me that guppies, plural of guppy, were the potato chip gub• gubs found in your Pepsi. A once very .good. friend Qf mine, told me that I had guppies in my Pepsi. I just kinda lookfi!d at het'', tilted m,y head and saj9; "What"? . My friend told me that the hunks of potato chips that I had edged out were gubgubs, and when I dr~k from my Pepsi bottle they fell in and became guppies. I told her .she was half crazy. The topic of fish got me thinking about ·tuna crot}uettes. If you ever have time to make a real mouth-watering food, you have to try tuna croquettes. They can be eaten freshly warm or refrigerated cold and taste

really good both ways. Here's the recipe if you ever have the time available to make them: 2 c flaked cooked fish, (or more commonly known as tuna fish) 1 c. thick white sauce 1 dash cayenne 1 tbsp. minced onion 1 tbsp. lemon juice 1 tbsp. minced parsley 1 beaten egg 1 tbsp. milk (for calcium) Flour Fine bread crumbs, dry 1( Mix first six ingredients. 2) Chill thoroughly. 3) Divide into 12 portions: shape as desired. 4) Combine egg and milk together. 5) Coat; dip in flour, then egg, and finally crumbs. 6) Chill about one half hour longer. 7) Fry in fat til golden brown, or about 3 minutes. I guarantee you will make them more than onece. Keep an eye out for those guppies.

To the Editor, Recently it has become increasingly hard to get a little shut eye in Delzell. If it's not my neighbors loud stereo blarring in my ears, its the party they have going outside my room in the hall. One added bonus is the people who drive by my window at night with horns honking rather loudly and blow my whole nights worth of sleep.

Views On Hitchhiking Revealed Is the thumb dead? After interviewing over 25 people as to their views and experiences concerning the sport of hitchhiking I have found it is indeed still alive and living. Of course the laws concerning hitchhiking_ have not changed. In Nebraska' state laws forbid hitchhiking on all interstates or expressways. It is permissable on public highways as long as the hitchhiker is not interfering with the flow of traffic or is not standing on the pavement. Local ordinances vary from county to county. All who were interviewed agreed Nebraska was the worst state in which to get a ride. "On my way to Peru to look for off-campus housing my VW broke down on highway 73-75. I stood in pouring rain for 2 and a half hours trying to get a ride to

Or instead of having a holder many of the place kickers used the drop kick. Try and picture a 1936 football game with all these new rules for the game. On the kick-off you could either drop kick the ball or place kick it from anywhere behind the forty yard line. If you kicked .the ball out of bounds you could take it back and try over but if you kicked it out a second time the other team got the ball on their own forty.

Did You Know That. .. Peru was the first college in Nebr. to offer fulltime student teaching for nine weeks to its elementary teaching candidates. Peru was named by some of the first settlers who arrived here from IDinois. 1965 was the first year Peru passed the 1000 mark in enrollment. That year 1041 students registered for the fall semester.

The first principal of the Peru State Normal . School· had a salary of $1500 and the preceptress of $800. The only resources of the Peru State Normal School at its beginning were tuition, in· ciditals and room rent. A dollar. and one-half was charged for incidential expenses and four dollars per term for room rent. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Peru has an elevation of 902 feet and is located at a latitude of 40 degrees, 29 minutes north, and . longitude as degrees, 440 minutes West.

Green Beanies Once On Campus The little green beanies, that so ·;ividly mark a freshmen of Peru State Teachers College, are earning quite a name for themselves. Worn in a most rediculous fashion on the frontal part o{ the skull, the greenies are the center of much discussion. Upon conducting a poll, most freshies agreed that they thought the color was pretty, but a little hard to match with the rest of their dress. The girls said they thought the, hats helped some to hide their true ap· pearance since they had to wear their hair up in curlers. A few

were altogether disgusted with them and said th~ only thing they helped them to do was to get excercise, since the wind seemed to be constantlY blowing them off the tops of: their heacts. l'hey all agreed 100 percent that they would be glad when they would no longer be required to wear them. One girl commented that if we lost the game with Chadron which is possible but not probable, and she had to wear that beanie all semester, wem' '. !

Beginnings Of Peru -

The beginning of Peru was one of modesty and slow envolvement, but it was not withoug its highlights. Five years before President Buchanan made a land grant to the Territory of Nebraska in 1859, land transfers appeared on Paper in the Peru locality. The Buchanan !and grant did nbt include Peru, but it just forced the territory to recognize Peru as a community. Peru stayed pretty much a frontier town until the early 20's, when the automobile and other modern inventions came to stay. These inventions made it essential to form the towns first ordinances, The first ordinances made it unlawful to allow animals and fowls to run at large. If you let your female dog in heat run free you would be fined $20. All toilets must be constructed wholly of stone, well burned brick, terra cotta, concrete or equivalent in combustible material. With the public in mind there was law aginst using a sling shot within city limits. For the morally minded, prostitution cost an offender between $10 and $100 for every offense. It was also unlawful to "expectorate" on any sidewalk, window, or door.

1929 Ped Ranked 2nd In a canvass of college newspapers in Nebraska, made by an advertising company iri New York City it was found that the Peru Pedagogian ranked .second to the University of Nebraska daily newspaper. According to this ranking Peru had the best weekly paper.

have registered for the event, including seventeen area high school bands that will also ap· pear at half of the game, between PSC and Benedictine of Atchison, Kansas. Color Girl Shelly Able, of Auburn, and Drum Major Ted Harshbarger, of Humbolt, will lead the Marching Bobcat Band in a pre-game show that will feature some flashy routines under the direction of Dr. David Edris. At 2p.m. the Bobcat's will pit their 2·2 record against a Benedictine team that hasn't won a game. During the game blue balloons with a white P on them will be released when the Bobcats get their first score. The balloons can be purchased either downtown during the parade or at the game from any Peru's Enthusiastic People club member. Mums can also be purchased during the parade from any member of the Women's Athletic Association. Half-time will be highlighted by the coronation of the 1974 Homecoming Queen. Aprogram will also be provided by all the participating bands from the parade. Bobcat Boosters will have a roped off area and parking on campus lots will be directed by PSC and Peru police. After the game President and Mrs Douglas Pearson will welcome all alumni at their home for a tea. During the day the residence halls will be holding an open house and would like everyone to come and see the dorms. The Fine Arts building will also have an art display by senior art major Alan Burwell, of Seward. The display will be in the Diddel Exhibition Court and continues through October 16. Everyone is welcome to eat their noon meal at the Student Center for a nominal fee or at any of the other food booths that will be open in Peru. There are also some nice places to eat in downtown Peru.

In 1929 Pedagogian This mind-boggling article appeared in a 1929 Pedagogian. It is affirmed that you are what you think you are. If you think you are what you think you are, you will naturally believe and think that you really think what you are; but if you only think what you are in truth you are more than likely to think and believe that you only think that you think what you are. If you think you think you are what you are not, then what you ·think is not what you are and what you are is not what you think and what you think is not what you think you are not and what you are not is not what you think you are but, what you think you are. While as a matter of cold and hard fact you are what you are and not at all what you think you are. So if you truly want to be what you think you are, be sure and think only that you are just what you are rather than what you think; and then it must follow that if you think you are what you are, you are what you think you are. Think it over. Charles Cambell Jones


News Items In 1949 Pedagogians ·


Every English major and minor at sometime or other is granted the questionable privilege of being on the staff of the Peru Pedagogian. To all other students, it is a mystery how our paper is constructed, produced and assembled. To these students, and all future students we offer the following information for your general education. The greatest problem of any newspaper stall is gathering enough interesting information to fill a paper. The Pedagogian, being a newspaper has this same difficulty. We could use things like "Who did the editor of the Ped see in Chatelains's Jewelry store with his girl?" But that is. for high school papers and not for sophisticated college papers. ~Besides who c~es ~hat Devan was doing in the Jewelry store with his girl?) We are ai"'.asy limit~d by strict censorship. We ~annot menti~n, certain beverages consumed in hberal quantities, nor can we mention trade names. We must be constantly aware that different conotations are put on words by different people w~ ;"1U~t ?e certain that none of the joke~ or1gmatmg mthe Music Hall find their way into our paper to contaminate it. We must be certain that the sponsor of our paper is able "to see the point" of our feeble attempts at humor. When each member of our stall has turned in his assigned 400 words, it is edited. revised and rewritten until it in somewhat satisfactocy· condition, and then taken down the hill to the printer, who sets the type. Two proofs of each st~ry are made, one is used for corrections and the other is used to make the dummy. If this did not leave the editor limp and suffering from a mental block· at this point point there would be a clever pun about the dummy, but McCoy will have to go unnoticed in this issue. After the dummy is made up, and those clever little headlines are written, it is returned to the· printer for final printing. On Thursday the finished paper is brought to the campus to be distributed among the·~ students after the convocation program. which everyone has seen and will read about in the next issue of the Ped. Us~ally each student hurriedly scans the paper for his own name. If he finds it he is satisfied thatit is a good issue, if not he looks for the names of his friends. These two things are important. He also expects the paper to be funny - and if the staff doesn't exactly feel funy, and makes no attempt at all, the. paper is 'smelly.' If someone does write a humor column, the staff hears ''Who wrote this thing?" or "I don't get it." It must also tell hime' something he doesn't already know. The reader usually has a good eye for detecting all printers

errors on the paper, and usually makes subtle suggestions that he has seen them - subtle I said like marking them in red -pencil and handing it to some staff member. Then there are the days the paper comes out and several nice people take the time to remark to one of the staff that the paper was exceptionally goOd this time and our week is n..!~ch brighter. · . This was written by one of the staff members of the Peru Ped which came out May 19th, 1949. Alot of thing~ have chang~d in the Pedagogian . since 1949. The staff still receives similar com,. ments as "why isn't there any news in this paper," or "It seems that the Ped has become a ditto sheet" for the alumni and prospective students who might decide to come here." Journalism students Still have a habit of turning their stories in late or sometimes forgetting to turn them in at all. We still have deadlines to meet, we still have little student -input into what they would like to see or read about in the paper, we still have students who only use the Ped to wipe off excess ketchup from their soybean burgers and we still have students who either don't realize we have a student publication on campus or have better things to do with their time than to take out a few minutes and read it. There are many who still don't realize how much time and effort goes into finding the news, writing about it, rewriting it, editing it and finally laying it out. Journalists still are crazy to even t-0 even for one moment believe it's rewarding. But we do have our days when the staff walks into· the Bob Inn and everyone has a copy of the Ped before them. There are still times when people come up to s~y, "Hey the paper isn't too bad this week." There is still the personal satisfaction of knowing we are doing our best. The staff of the Ped in 49' had many of the same problems we hfive in 74' and many things have-changed or are trying to be changed but they did it then and we are doing it now and when the going gets rough we just look at each other and say, Keep on smiling, it can't be this bad next week."

Getting out this paper is no picnic. If we print jokes, people say we are silly; if we 9on't they say we are too serious. ~we clip from other papers, we are too . lazy to write it down ourselves; if we don't we are stuck on our own stuff. If we stick close to the · job all day' we ought to be out hunting for news. If we get out and try to hustle, we ought to ~ on the job in the office. If we don't print contributions, we don't appreciate true genious; if we do the paper is full of junk. If we make a change in a fellow's write up, we are to critical; if we. don't we aFe asleep. Now, Like as not, someone will say that we swiped this from some other paper. · WE DID - SO WHAT? This editorial was printed ih the November 10th issue of the Pedagogian, 1949. Editors note: We still liear the same gripes. So WHAT'S NEW?

1934 News An organization known as the Young Mens Christian Association was established as a union of students and faculty members for the purpose of leaning to know God. At the same time a Young Womens Christian Association was formed whose purpose was to realize a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. It was their goal to have a part in making this life possible for all people and to see to understand and to follow Jesus.

KPSC Ready For Use

By Its Club

When a small school has facilities, ·they should be used and considei; themselves lucky to have them. One example of this is the KPSG, an AM radio station that ol>erates right here on campus:. Well. almost. The station isn't operating at the present time, and won't unless there is more interest exoressed by the students. Ed Clark, sponsor for the presently nonexistant Radio Club, stated that all is ready and waiting and the station could go on the air at any time. "All we need is about ten students to man the statfon on a defined schedule. Once in operation, the statior could acquire tapes from th National Public Radio netwm·J which would give the statior. variety to interest many. Tapes available through this network include concerts and national · programs such as William Buckley's "Firing Line." Also possible is a public affairs ·program on KNCY, an .AM station operating out of · Nebraska City. This would be one thirty minute program e_Ye..r.Y week · For the moment, KPSC can only be heard at Morgan or Delzell but Clark said that another transmitter could be installed at the Complex if there is enough student interest.

The Centennial Housing Complex was the scene of a theft of rather large proportion in the early morning hours on SeptPmber 31, 1974. The articles stolen consisted of five automobile eight-track stereos, three television sets, two stereo sets, one clock-radio, and a wristwatch. There was also a number of records and tapes missing. The automobiles with the tape players that were stolen, were all in the paiking lot of the Complex and were entered by force. Wing-vents were broken out to provide entry. One car that was entered had the entire side window shattered. The majority of the thefts took place · in the students dorm rooms. One resident said that his door .was unlocked, another said his was locked, and the other two rooms said they were not sure. The incident occured after 1:15 a.m., for that was when one of the victims went to bed. Florence Johnson. Housemother


at the victimized ClayburnMathews Hall, said she could not IUlderstand why anyone would leave their doors unlocked in a situation such as this. She asked, "Would you leave your door m1locked if you lived in an apartment in Omaha or Lincoln? Of course not, so why here?" George Wendell refused comment on the Security Police hours. · Of the four rooms entered, three of them were on the Clayburn side (which is the opposite side that Mrs Johnson lives), and three were on the third floor.

Concordia Beats Bobcats By Two .

The Peru Bobcats, in their September 28 road game with Concordia, outplayed the Bulldogs in every statistical category except rushing yardage and extra point conversions. But, the mistakeplagued Bobcats fell short, 14-12, in their bid for ! three game win streak. Peru's miscues and zero for two PAT conversions were responsible for the score. After stopping a sustained ~oncordia drive at the Peru 11 yd. line early in the first quarter, Peru State took ball possession deep in their own territorv. A couple of plays later, a Bobcat pass was pirated and returned to the Peru 14 yard line. Concordia moved in for their first TD on an eight yard pass from Seeves to Larrabee. The PAT was good and Concordia led 7-0 with 6:12 left in the first quarter. Peru State received the ensuing kickoff and drove 66 yards to paydirt. The TD was scored on a five yard option run around right end by Patton. The PAT was missed and the first quarter score read: Concordia 7, Peru State 6. . .Midway through the second quarter, the Concordia defense stopped the Bobcat offense on a 4th down and inches play on the {;-27 yard line. The Concordia offense took over and drove 73 yards for their second TD of the night. The TD came on a 53 yard scramble by Baker with 3: 58 left in the half. The PAT was bouncingly good and Concordia led 14-6 at halftime. With 4: 34 left in the third quarter, Peru State capped a 62 yard drive with a 22 yard TD bomb from Carterto Seiler. The two point conversion pass was

dropped and Peru State trailed 14-12. For the rest of the third and most of the fourth quarter, the Bobcat offense were stopped by their own miscues. Two consecutive Bobcat drives in Concordia territory were stopped by a pass interception and a fumble. Then, with 4:00 left, a golden scoring opportunity appeared for the Bobcats. A Concordia fumble, near the C-20 yard line was scooped up by Jerry Weber and was carried to the C-7 yard line. The Bobcats tried two running plays. The Concordia defense held them. A desperate third-<lown pass was tried by Carter. And one of the referees whistled Carter for grounding

the ball. The 15 yard penalty and loss of a down set up a long-shot field goal attempt by the BobcatS. It fell short at the goal line and Concordia ran the clock out to clinch the victory. Offensively, Peru State outdowned (14-8) out-passed (145· 33) Concordia and led in total offense (229-169). Concordi.a had the rushing edge (136-84), and went two for two in PAT conversions. Carter was the top pas.ser of the game with 11 out of 21 passes for 145 yards. Top Peru State receiver was Seiler with 92 yards on six catches. Patton led the Peru State rushing category with 56 yards on 22 carries. The next road game for the Peru State Bobcats is at

Short Stuff. Morgan Hall and Davidson Palmer girls enjoyed a showing Wednesday, October 9, of bridal' gowns, crystal, china, .tableware. and cookware. Each girl that attended received a fu!J.eolor brochure of the latest wedding gowns, a coupon entitling her to a year's subscription of Modern Bride Magazine for $2.50 and she also had a chance on winning a vacation in Florida. Julia Gonz!tlez from Morgan Hall and Becky Niday from D~vidson Palmer won the vacation to Florida. The Language Arts Reading Program was instituted to give Language Arts students a broader background in the classics and in the area of the novel. It is also to keep students updated on present novels that have been written. The program is for all English majors and is set up on a five semester base. During each of these semesters the students are required to read two books that are chosen by the English department. At certain times during the semester tests will be given over these books. The tests are twenty questions long and are ·given during a convocation period. The books chosen this semester are "The Great Gatsby" and "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress." The tests will be given on pctober '9 and November 13. If you are an

Letter to the Editor: The women of DavidsonPalmer, in their ·tradition of leadership and enthusiasm, were involved in every aspect of Homecoming '74. To start out the day, Davidson-Palmer's "Lovebug" entry in the parade won a first place trophy. Visitors to the Student Center for lunch could view Davidson-Palmer's first place window in the campus window painting contest. Later in the day, as three of D-P's residents .played In PSC's marching band, six of D-P's women cheered the team on to ·Victory, as varsity and alternate cheerleaders. Halftime at the football game, saw D·P's own Peggy Kreifels crowned as the 1974 Homecoming· Queen, while Linda Doty and Gail Harmon from Davidson-Palmer attended her. Following the game, residents and their guests returned to the Hall, where they enjoyed the colorful windows, parnted by residents for their own window painting contest, and to show their support for the team. Rounding out the evening, was the drama department's production of "Born Yesterday", starring a D-P woman, with another residentof D-P in a supporting role. It is with tremendous pride that I say thank you to "my girls" for their spirit, enthusiasm, and dedication in helping to make Homecoming '74 a success a(PSC.

As a reporter for the Pedagogian I have been given several human interest stories to report on which required getting students opinion on different issues such as what they . thought of . the Winterwood concert, why girls prefer living at Morgan than at the Complex and vice-versa, what is your stand on amnesty, just to name a few. Students have been very reluctant to put their opinions of the above issues in the paper with their name behind them. The Ped staff has been trying to relate news that is of student interest. It is our responsibility to know how students feel about certain issues and how they are responding . to them. After all the student newspaper is supposed to be the voice of the students. Without student input this is virtually impossible. When students are asked a specific question there are four typical reactions 1). I don't know. 2). I don't care. 3). Don't quote me on that. 4).

VIRGINIA MILLA ever happened to constructive Dear Editor: It has come to my attention that many of the people on campus would like to have political speakers on campus. This being an election year, many of the students from Nebraska would like to see what and who they're voting for. It would be nice if some of the important candidates could come and express their views. If enough interest is shown -in having a speaker, the SCB (Student Center Board) might be able to get in contact with some of the candidates to see if they would be willing to come to Peru. I also know that many of the other colleges have had prominent political officials speak at their schools. Why not Peru? KEVIN PERKINS

Henderson's questions concerning Majors Hall. In the past Peru State students have wondered why Majors Hall has not been used as a residence hall. Rumor has it the building is sinking down into the foundation and has not been in use since the 1972 school year. In talking with John Letts, Director of Housing and student activities this rumor was found to be true. In a survey taken by ~ Letts s~udents felt, Delzell Hall and the residence halls at the complex were inore conducive to the type of dorm life students wanted. A lack of occupancy was the major factor involved in the closing of its doors. by Wendell Henderson

Editors Note: Due to lack of interest, Peru has been cancelled.

Letter to the Editor: What is the cosmic factor? Dear Reader: God made-. That's what it is. There are just some things you cannot put into print. Letter to the Editor: A remark made at the Homecoming bonfire by a speaker really shocked me. Peru was stated to be a loser, primarily referring to the football team. The 'Cats were termed losers before they even had a chance to get on the field. I would like to list some of the accomplishments of the "Losers'' in the past year: o PSC football team tied Kearney for first place in NCC. 2) Outstanding Homecoming participation in a variety of events. 3) Jim Lennerton elected as Nebraska State Program Coordinator for SCB. 4) Musical productions and activities (band, swing choir, marching band, and choir) which promote the school. 5) 12 PSC seniors named to Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges. 6) Five 'Cats football players named to NCC team by state college coaches. 7) Barry Reed selected in the tenth round by the Minnesota Vikings. · 8) 173 students were Dean's List students. 9) Wrestlers took NCC rournament trophy. . 10) Pat Hopp named Lieutenant Governor for Circle K, division four. 11) Excellent student involvement in community activities .. 12) Apple-Jack trophy winner. 13) Alumni who have achieved prominence in their respective fields. 14) Achievements of organizations on campus. Sound like a school of losers? I don't think so. These are only a few of the WINNING things .about Peru. All you have to do is look around to see the countless other accomplishments that make Peru a success. It is impossible to be a winner all the time, but it helps to be able to enter competition with the desire to win and the knowledge that people are backing you up. I know there are many people who have faith in us and these are the people who know PSC is really a winner. · ·Bobbi Thiesfeld

Peru Pulls In A Victory For Homecoming Event




Templemeyer and Hoffmeyer go for the same catch in a touchy situation.

The 1974 Homecoming game between Peru State and Benedictine took place· on the Oak Bowl griqiron under chilly, overcast skies. Chances for a Bobcat victory seemed just as dreary as the Bobcats· met a surprisingly tough Benedictine defense. 'Sputtering at times, the Bobcat offense got some help from the Big Blue defense in subduing the Benedictine Ravens, 10-7. The Ravens, still winless after three games, scored a TD on a 66 ·yd. pass interception in the first quarter. This defensive gem let the Bobcats know that the Ravens are not easy game. . Late in the second quarter, a punt by Benedictine, deep in its own territory, was returned to the Ravens' 38 yd. line. The punt return by Jeff Lewis put the Bobcats in a good field position to score. Two plays later, a Rodney Carter-Mike Seiler aerial went 35 yards for a first and goal at the Ravens three yard line. Three plays later, Ignacio Martinez, Peru fullback, sent the blue balloons aloft on a one yard TD plunge. Atwo point conversion run by Carter was successful and Peru State led Benedictine 8-7 at halftime. Homecoming 1974 was Band0-Rania day as senior and junior high bands amassed themselves

on the gridiron during halftime. They presented a concerted performance of several music numbers to entertain the Homecoming crowd. The band trophies were presented and the Homecoming queen was announced. Peggy Kreifels, a senior from Nebraska City, was crowned Homecoming Queen of 1974. The only score in the second half came on a blocked punt by Peru State. A Benedictine punt from their own end zone was fumbled by the punter and the , · hurried kick was blocked by Mark Clark. The·ball sailed out of the end zone, giving the Big Blue defense two points to pad the Bobcats fragile one point lead. With 7: 13 left in the third quarter, the scoreboard read: Peru State 10, Benedictine 7. · The Big Blue defense held the Ravens in check until the 1ast two minutes of the game. Starting a desperation drive, the Ravens gained 54- of their 127 total offensive yards on two long passes. The Big Blue defense held up and another gridiron · victory was safely kept in Bobcats' hands. The game statistics reflected the defensive struggle between ·the Bobcats and the Ravens as neither team had more than 170 yards in total offense, (Peru

State-167, Benedictine-127.) Fullback Dale Patton was the game's leading rusher with 85 yards on 27 carries. The team accumulative statistics, after five games, revealed that Peru State is leading in rushing yardage (13892), and in total offense (212171). Peru State is lagging in the passing yardage category by five yards. This is due to the opponents' edge in pass interceptions (8-4). The Bobcats' next home game appearance will be on October 19, when they'll meet Chadron, a conference foe.

Bobkittens lose to tough UNL team The Peru State Bobkittens traveled to Lincoln for their second volleyball match of the season on September 25. The opposing team, UNL, proved the victor in their opening match with final scores of 15,3and15 to 7for the Varsity, and 15-0 and 15 to 7for the JwiiOr Varsity. The next game is with Nebraska Wesleyan at Peru on October 4.

It Wasn't Easy

But We Did It The appearance of . the Association, a popular recording group who to date have played to over five and 112 million people highlighted last weekends events. Student Activities Director, John Letts and· Student Programs Committee chairman Jim Lennerton, got the show on the road for the appearance of the group after others were deemed unaffordable on Oct. 9th.

The manager of Variety Theatre, a booking agency notified Lennerton that the group wollld be in the area with an open date Friday, Oct. 18.

"We already had a concert scheduled that night, but it wasn't something that an additional act couldn't enhance," commented Letts. "Dickering for price was the next consideration," he continued, "The group usually gets about $5500 for a performance, something. we could never handle." Two colleges in Iowa showed particular interest in getting the group for their free night before a scheduled appearance at Concordia College in Seward. With a little financial finagling and a way with words, Lennerton hung up the' phone and calmly said "We ,got 'em.';

Association Not Born Of Trends As a rule, rock groups don't last a decade. Born of trends, the loyalty of the public reflects perpetual progress. The . Association endures because it grows. It is not a static tribute to one moment's glory. When not touring, the group spends difficult days in long, intense rehearsals. Musical excellence, textured and true is the resUlt. With six Grammy nominations to their credit, The Association is sure-footed, and professionally adept. Ted Bluechel, one of two percussionists, sings baritone. A product of southern California, he has an obsession for Snicker candy bars and a disdain for clothes. Had he not become involved with The Association zoology would have gotten him. Maurice Miller, a native of Alton, Illinois appeared in the musical rock opera, "Hair," and "Tommy." In his valley home he grows Ms own spinach and

zucchiq1. David Vaught plays bass and sings baritone. He has appeared · with Helen Reddy ~nd Paul Williams also. David says he insists on aisle seats on airplanes so he is able to keep his eye on the stewardesses. Because of a tendency toward hypochondria he has been nick.named Oscar Levant. He has also produced a momument to the absurd - an alubm called "Flaming Pits." It is. Jim Yester who plays rhythm guitar and sings tenor might have been a Catholic brother had worldly temptations been less · persuasive. Richard Thompson, comes to the group as a piano player, cla,ssically schooled, jazz trained. He swears dolphins are more intelligent than man, and would rule the earth, had they been blessed with hands. Jerry Yester, who has played with the Christy Minstrels and

The Lovin' Spoonful, feeds a live audience more than a spoonful; He is a band within a band, playing guitar, bass, piano, and autoharp and he can sing you to high heavens. Larry Ramos plays lead guitar and sings tenor. Born in Kauai, resideing now in San Juan Capistrano, he awakens to call the weather bureau to determine this size of local waves. Then off on his surf board he goes. To date The Association has played over 900 concerts in seven years, 791 being in colleges and universities. 69 of. their 84 songs recorded were written by members of the group. To add to their growing achievements The Assoication has also come out with a book entitles "Cnrne Your Spreaders."

Letter to the editor: The purpose of this letter is not to give abusive but hopefully constructive criticism of this year's Pedagogian. The first criticism is aimed at those writers who tend to knock Peru. Examples are October 12's editor's note: "Due to a lack · of interes.t Peru has been cancelled" and also the sketch on page three where there's a sign saying, "Peru State College Where there's more oaks than folks." Little do the editors and writers of the paper realize that such negative remarks tend to create or further apathetic attitudes of some of Peru's

students. There was also an article in the paper apparently urging students to stay during the week ends and not go home. Unfortunately the purpose of this article is entirely negated by the other two useless remarks. How do you hope to encourage students to stay if you contin~ally ridicule the college? The second criticism is that the staff of the Ped should try harder to report on the activities _of the college. The staff might argue, "Well, there is nothing to report on in Peru." What about the window painting contest at the Student Center or this year's

Homecoming parade? There was no report at all, on these unless you count the letter to the editor emphasizing what Davidson-Palmer hall accomplished during the week. Many people would agree with me that this years parade was one of the best ever with its beautiful floats and well sounding bands. Unfortunately the ~fforts of many people who worked many hours for night on end on the floats and window paintings will not be given due credit by pictures or articles in the college newspaper. What about the picture of the Homecoming queen and her

Concerning the letter to the editor signed by Scott McKercher and the criticism against the cartoon on page three of last weeks Ped which stated "More oaks than folks." I have this to say. The cartoon was meant in a satirical sense because above it was placed the article urging more students to remain on campus over the we~kends. Perhaps the lines "More oaks than folks on weekends," should have been added to clarify the point intended. Students in universities and colleges all , across the country are complaining about apathy. Alot of students got tired of reading about how' much apatJty there was on campus and how few students were involved in anything last year. The point of "Due to a lack of interest Peru has been cancelled," was another way of pleading with students to become involved on Peru's campus beacuse if a lack of interest in the college persists, the possibility of .our campus closing could very well become a reality. Again the point did not come across well. To answer the writers second criticism that the staff should report more on college activities I might add that each week story assignments are handed out to the five journalism I students which make up my staff. Whether the stories are handed in or not is a direct reflection of how much news there is in the l!al!er that week. At present I am without a news editor - who's job is to collect the news on campus and hand out assignments. Due to this lack of staff I cannot know of everything that possibly happens on campus; Few are the times when suggestions for possible stories are made to me. I thank you for yours. Deadline for stories is Monday at 3 p.m. ~····

OCTOBER 21, 197

I spend the whole week making sure we

have enough copy for press on Thursday because stories seldom make it in on deadline. Thursday at S:30 after that week's issue is finished I begin to start worrying about the next weeks edition. This means that new assignments are made on Friday which leaves little time tq meet Monday's deadline. I accept the blame. ..)\s for why there was no picture of the window painting contest. Pictures were taken butglare off the gfass made them impossible for print. The idea of Shelly Able's name not being in the October 5th issue of the Ped was an oversight. An article reviewing the play was assigned at the beginriing of the year. It was never .turned in and notice that it would not be turned in was never given to me. As far the the Winterwood concert was concerned, students ar.e reluctant not to openly express their views on any subject if they know their name must go behind what they say. Out editorial policy states that what is written -0n the editorial page is not the collective opinion of the staff and does not reflect the opinion of the school. It is one persons opini~ and his only. He or she has a right to say what they feel. If the news stories are not turned in supplements or trivia must be used to fill in the space. If a paper does not receive criticism then it is not being read. Thank you for taking the time to read the paper and thank you for having enough guts to put in print what you believe is wrong with the Ped and sign your name to it. Ped Ed.

attendants and escorts? Why aren't their names printed under the picture along with a brief write up on the coronation? Why wasn't there a writeup about Miss Able as a Homecoming candidate'? I realize that the article on the candidates was done before Miss Abie's election commuter reprsentative, but there is still no reason why one couldn't have 'been included in the Ped of Uct. 5. What about an article reviewing the Homecoming play or the fantastic concert given Oct. 5th. Why not write an article on the refounded Home Economics department or the activities of the campus organizations? As a former cross country runner in high school I always appreciated and was inspired by articles in the paper mentioning the results of eross country meets. I imagine this year's team wouidfeel the same way. These along with other informative articles could be included in the Ped. If-there's a complaint that there is· not enough room in the Ped for News, then the staff should take out the worthless articles and find room· Scott McKercher

S.G.'A. Takes Poll

Dear Editor: Three loud and lusty cheen for the writer of the letter to thE editor in the October 12th Ped whose main points seemed to be (1) boys not asking girls out, (2) mistaken concept that we Peru girls are "stuck-up" and (3) whatever happened to communications? Of the girls that I talked to about this letter, 3 out of 3 agreed with it 100 per cent. We're in college now. We're supposed to be mature. Yet, here we are, playing pointless games instead of setting up communications with the opposite sex. The most popular game seemsto be Read MY Mind. The rules are (1) Boy makes first move, (2) Any girl making first move is labeled "pushy" or "fast" and immediately disqualified (3) Boy may only say "hi" to girl (if he says anything at all), (4) girl must keep her mind open 24 hours a ?ay to ESP suggestions given out by available male players, (5) If ESP signals are missread and girl make- the wrong move, she loses (severe dent in ego, results). Object year". '

Retraction Concerning the article that appeared in the last issue of the Ped about Majors Hall. The rumors that the Hall was closed because it was seeping into the ground are false. Dr. Rosenberg took the survey to determine where students would rather live. The students made preferences~ other than Majors Hall and this is the reason it was closed. It will be opened again if the other dorms fill up.

I enjoy receiving the PED and think you are doing a fine job, if impulsive at times. Congratuations on the cover of the Oct. 5 issue, but I can't resist teasing you a bit of the fact that nowhere in the entire paper did I see the date of Homecoming. I am sure the students all know, but us slums are not on campus, and "All we know is what we read in the papers." I am guessing Homecoming was last weekend .. Am wondering if. the State Senators are on your mailing list. ·If they are not, they should be. Let them know you are not 1 second-class college! Keep up the good work! Dorothy M. Stephan

PSC Drama Group Tours A PSC drama group that contains actor-director Ed Clark, PSC students, Rita Miller, Kevin Knoll, Tom Banks and Jo Kuck will be going on tour beginning Oct. 21 at Falls City high school.

Circle K Behind Yearhook If this year's PSC yearbook becomes a reality Circle K will have been largely responsible. Under the direction of President Jim Smith, Circle Khas taken on the ~esponsibility of gettting the yearbook started. One of theirfirst steps was to survey students to see how many students wre interested. Ap. proximately 300 students replied in ~the affirmative, this figure represents about half of the student body. ·~ ·With this -number of students behind them they proceeded to tackle the chief problem of funds. President Smith estimates the cost of producing the annual at about $3500. This price could be brought down by various cuts in the formal' way of producing an annual. In. order to break even, President Smith

approximates the figure of $8 per copy if every student bought one. If only half of the student body buys one, the cost couid rise to $12 per copy. Under the law the college can no longer appropriate funds for the annual; this puts reliance on the students and other sources for the money. · According to E!resident Smith, lack of funds is only one of the problems. At present time there· isn't any organized annual staff and lack· of organization on . previous annuals p~events this year's annual from having any money to start with. -.. Circle K is continuing to look for ways to cheapen the cost and are open to ideas for fund raising projects. Anyone that could contribute ideas, should contact the Ped or Mr Smith (Delzell) personally.

Peru Enrollment Down President Douglas Pearson has released the fall enrollment figures of PSC, 770 students compared to 853 a year ago. 212 freshmen enrolled, one short of the 1973 mark and parttime day students improved from 37 last fall to 79 in 1974. Last years transfers students number of 40 is overshadowed by this fall's 51 mark. Night Class registration can be attributed to a reduction in the total enrollment. The number fell from 49 last fall to 25 this fall. Off campus enrollment (70 compared to 121) and 596 full time day students compared to .the fil!ure of 646 last fall. r.lass enrollment for the fresh-

men was 271 compared to 294 for last fall. 142 sophomores compared to 138 last fall. 92 juniors compared to 119 last fall. 116 seniors compared to 183 last fall .. The Post Graduate number fell from SO to 50, while students-atlarge and high school students enrolled for college credit rose from 39 to 99. Kearney St. reports an enrollment increase of 377 students, while Wayne has 13 fewer than in 1974 and Chadron rlroooed by 140. The total enrollment at the four state colleges increased by 92 students this fall over the 1973 ·total.




Letter to the Editor: As chairman of the hospitality committee of the student Center Board, it is my job to write thank you letters to all those who help us out throughout the year. As such I would like to address a thank you to many Peru State Students. Thanks for nothing! ! ! All semester since I first joined SCB all I've heard is that there is never anything to do on weekends. Trying to remedy this situation, a concert was held last Friday night, Oct. 18th on campus with a nationally known group called the "Association." Remember the posters? Well perhaps many people don't realize what this group cost. The contract was signed for $2600. In order to even attempt this it took a lot of work, especially on the part of Jim Lennerton our student programmer, to come up with the money. A mere $4.00 a chair was charged and just in case, the Chambers of Commerce from Peru, Auburn, and Nebraska City were kind enough to agree to pay what ever we didn't clear at the door. Little did they realize that they would end up paying $500 apiece, a steep price for a small town to pay for something which they got no benefit from. NI I'm asking is what in the world do students want? Nothing is free. I've heard the complaints about $4.00 to get in. How much money do the same students blow elsewhere in one week? To tell the truth I personally would rather pay $4.00 and see a group like that here and sit 50 feet from the stage than to pay $6 to $10 in Omaha for the same concert at 150 feet from the stage. As a result of last Friday nite it is very unlikely that Peru State will ever see a big name group again for a long time. H this is the support we get for getting what the students cry for, then we may as well give up. We just can't afford it. Finally, I WOULD like to thank the approximately 250 students and others who did come. I think they saw a fine concert and will be sorry that not too many more if any will be given. Your support was appreciated. Laurita Tackett Ch., Hospitality for SCB Dear Editor: I found nothing wrong with the Oct 12th cartoon depicting "More oaks than folks." It was one of the funniest cartoons I have seen in a long time. I thought it was done in good taste.

Ped Ed. biggest groups in the last 10 years, The Association, gave a concert in front of a mere 250 or · so people of which only 175 fo 200 were students at Peru. Not even half of the student body supported this concert. Not only did these people miss a good concert but if there's a possibility of no entertainment the second semester because of paying off for the Association concert, then it is clearly their fault. According to a rumor the football players had to go to the AuburnWaverly football game. Why make them go if 75 per cent of them don't even know any of the highschool players playing? H this is true, then some of the blame in the poor attendance of the concert rests with. the coaches. As for the people who cried about $4.00' a head cost, remember it's $5.00 to $8.00 plus $3.00 to $4.00 gas mileage to go to a concert in Omaha. Those who said they couldn't pay the cost were probably downtown buying pitchers of beer and getting drunk. Scott McKercher.

Dear Editor: As a member of the ,,Student Center Board, I was shocked at the resignation of Jim Lennerton as President. Jim has been a member of the Board for three years and has been in charge of booking concerts, dances and other social activities. Unfortuantely, Jim couldn't work the miracles some PSC students expected of him. He did the best he could with what he had to work with. No more can be expected of ariy man. His experience and /devotion to PSC will be hard to replace. All I ask is that the next time you stop to critize the SCB, SGA, Jr the college newspaper, think 1bout the students who head .hese organizations and it's members, and the time and effort they put forth to make Peru State College something to be proud of. But most of all take time to admire them ....because at least they have enough guts to try. Sincerely, Connie Gregg

Ten-Year Old Finishes CROP Walk First Ten-year old George Nincehelser of Peru was the first participant to finish the sixteen mile "From Peru to Peru" CROP walk which was held on the afternoon of October 20. George, a fifth grade student at the Peru Elementary said he walked because he wanted to and added he "didn't know if I could walk the whole way and my mother thought I could only walk three (miles)". It took George only about four hours to complete the Peru route and other walkers claimed he ran about half the distance. George says he eats "Life" cereal for breakfast and has no interest now in being part of a track team in the future. Eighteen other hikers participated in the marathon which began at about 1: 15 after a registration at the Peru State Bob-Inn. Each hiker was given maps of the route and their cards were marked after each mile they completed.

Before the game was over, Chadron scored a field goal and a TD to spoil the fun, 10-4. · Peru State took the opening kickoff and drove down the field as if they wanted to break their touchdown-less streak of six quarters, only to be stopped at the one yard line by a Chadron goal line stand. Three plays later, a fumbled Chadron pitchout was recovered in the end zone by Chadron for a two-point safety. The aefensive tally QUt Peru State in the lead, 2-0, with 6:20 left in the first

Performances in the college auditorium were free and open to the public, Dr. Camealy said.

Dr. Michael Stewart, the new vice president of Financial Affairs at Peru State College believes declining enrollments and inflation are the major financial problems at Peru as· well as at other colleges and universities. Stewart, whose position became effective on September 15, previously served as Director of Institutional Research and Assistant to the VicePresident for Academic Affairs at Fort Hays Kansas State College in Hays, Kansas.

The new Peru administrator also believes that the College should take a good look at what it has done and find out what it should be doing to meet the needs of the area. He and his wife, Lucille, have two children, Heather, 11, and Blaine, 6. The couple are native Californians and love the Peru scenery, particularly the trees and hills. He is also impressed with the friendliness of the people and said he admires the Peru campus layout.

Circle K Backs Advertising Aspect Of Peruvian By RAY KJ\!'PEL Circle K club at Peru State College has decided •.to. finan, cially back the Peruvian, PSC annual, according to Jim Smith, Circle K president. Smith said the chief source of funds will be from advertising. __ Anew style of advertising will be used, he said. Instead of appealing directly to merchants, Smith said, the club will appeal to chambers of commerce and city councils of Southeast Nebraska and Southwest Iowa. Towns will be solicited to advertise themselves with history, population, numbers and types of businesses. This information will be in a special section of the annual which will make the section readable and will enlarge the scope of the ;m_nual to make prospective buyers more aware ·oi merchandise and services offered in this area, Smith said. George Wendel, superin._ tendent of buildings and grounds, has given Circle-K another fund raising job, that of policing the campus before and after major events. Circle K volunteers will be paid $1.90 an hour for the work, the proceeds going to support the annual. Donations will finance a portion of the annual, Smith said. Circle K is trying to solve another problem of the Annual, that of staff organization. Smith said that obviously Cirle K club can't do all of the work of producing the annual, so a meeting will be held at Wednesday convocation to get student help. "Without student help, the annual will die," Smith said. The place of the meeting will be posted on bulletin boards before Wednesday. Another change planned for the annual is to split the production into two sections with a fall edition and a spring edition. Each section will have a minimwn of 40 pages, Smith said. Price of each section will be about $3, Smith said. The fall section will go on sale in the

spring semester. The club will take orders for the section immediately, Smith said.

··CoII ege· L'1fe f'1rst T'1me Expenence . For Mom To Students Go Chadron Sue Lacy, a 27 year old commuter housewife from Nebraska City and mother of three children ages 8-6-2 is experiencing college life for the first time. She enrolled this fall as a full time, self supporting freshman, majoring in English and Speech and Drama. When asked how she can manage a household, three children and going to school she said this "All my clases are on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9-2 which makes it fairly convenient. That and the fact I have a live in babysitter to be there at home in case of emergencies helps alot." Sue came from a large family where not every child was given..

the opportunity to go to college because of the financial cost involved. She attributes this as the major reason why she qever attended college sooner. After high school she settled down to a domestic life of caring for her husband and raising a family, but Sue can in no way be classified as you typical stereotyped housewife. Four years ago Sue formed a small community theatre group in Nebraska City called "The Little Theatre." 12 members began performing melodramas, in the winter and comedy hits such as, "Come Blow Your Horn," in the summer. Since that time the regular cast has grown to that of 30. With admission set at $1.50 a

head the "Little Theatre" ·of N.C. grossed $600.00 for their first performance. "It took alot of sales promotion, hard work and a lot of knocking on doors trying to get people to buy tickets to have the outcome turn out as well as it did." said Sue. "Usually it takes a theatre group the size of ours at least two or three years to get off the ground. Our enthusiasm and dedication helped tremendously in getting the b~l rolling," she added. Last summer the group performed three one-act plays at Buffalo city, one being a melodrama and the other two a comedy and drama. Sue was president of the theatre group for two years but has stepped

down from her position to let the other members broaden their horizons.

Only Six Return To Varsity Squad Only six returning varsity players made the 1974-75 Bobcat cagers squad with ten freshmen to make a full squad after the cut · last week. New faces on the squad this year are: Mark Hanson (Fairbury, Neb.); Ed Brown (Miami, Florida); Duane Ideus (Adams, Neb.); John Herbst (Independence, Mo.); Rich Severson (Marine City, Mich.); Lin Volker \Humboldt, Neb.); Russ Mort (Pawnee City, Neb.); Joe Fleskoski (Falls City,· Neb.); Jeff Scanlan tPlattsmouth, Neb.); Ernest Dimbo (White Plains, New

York) and Scott (Treynor, Iowa).


The cagers begin their 4th week of practice under new coach Roger Schnaser. "Defense has been our number one priority in the last weeks of practice," states Coach Schnaser. "Everyone is working extremely hard and the spirit of the team has been great. · Our style of play is going to be a lot different from last season and the veterans have shown great leadership."

According to the overtime rules, each team runs four offensive plays, starting from thei1own 15 yard line. The team, with the higher number of offensive yards, wins the game. A pass interception would end a team's offensive turn. The Packers won the coin flip to determine who would nlav on offense first. They lasted only one play as their first pass was intercepted by the Bears. All the Bears needed to do is to gain one yard in four offensive tries. But, the Packers threw them fm: a six yard loss on the first play. A successful second down pass was nullified by a penalty, and a third down pass was intercepted by Galen Kronhofmen to end the Bears' offensive turn. Since the Pack had zero yardage and the Bears lost some yardage, the Packers were declared the 1974 Flag Football tournament champions.

Turner Elected S.C.B. Head Jeff Turner was elected by the Peru State College Student Center Board members to replace Jim Lennerton as President of the organization at their November 4 meeting. Turner, a senior from Yutan who is majoring in biology, ran against Mike DeRuntz and Dale Shaatz. The new president who has served as an S.C.B. member for 2 years said his main ob. jective is to build up student interest. Lennerton resigned on Oc-

tober 21 stating his priorities had changed and feeling his responsibilities were now of a different nature. After the election a date for holding the Student Center tournaments was discussed. The tournaments, which will be held the 2nd, 3rd and 5th of December calendar permitting feature: pinball, foosball, pool, ping pong; singles and doubles, and maybe bowling. Trophies will be given for first place in each event. The SCB will also sponsor a pie

eating contest which will begin at the intermission of the coffee house on November 25 and 26. The coffee house held in the Bob Inn will feature the music of John MacNamarah. Trophies will also be given to the winners of the pie eating contest. SCB will also be charging 50 cents for the people who attend the movies that are nonstudents. They also discussed holding contests for students during Convo period on Wednesday.

feru No. 1 On Construction List Dr. Douglas Pearson stated in an interview last Thrusday, October 7th that Peru State College will have first priority on capital construction which deals with the budgeting of new buildings. The Board of Trustees confirmed that we are first in line for the new physical education-health complex in a meeting that was held in Kearney on October 17th. Before the wheels can be put into motion an itemized budget will be submitted to the

legislature concerning two programs which come before building appropriations, one of which is Miscellaneous Renovation and reparis. Peru has asked for $50,000 to complete this project which would take care of the maintenance and upkeep of the campus. Aflat amount of money will be given to each college for the purpose. Second in line is deferred maintenance projects. This money is allocated for man-

power to take care of the miscellaneous ground projects. Peru is asking the legislature for $47,322. According to Dr. Pearson, the third priority is our building. A , 3,000 to 4,000 study has already been completed to draw up architectural plans for the size and type of building. The total cost of the new physical education-health complex is $380,820. Approximately 7 per cent of this total cost which comes to $230,000 will be given to the architects. According to Dr. Pearson, PSC has a fairly good chance of receiving allocated funds from the legislature due to the fact we have first priority of all the state colleges in capital construction of buildings.

President Pearson Feels Report Not Accurate Dr. Douglas Pearson, president at PSC does not feel the fiscal analyst report projections concerning declining enrollment at PSC are accurate. According to him the fiscal analyst did not consult with the, individual institutions in developing these statistics. In answer to the rumor that Peru does not have 655 students which was the projection for Peru in 1979, at present Dr'. Pearson quoted these statistics. "At present we have 675 fall fulltime students which is eight less from last year. The total enrollment for the fall semester, is 770." Dr. Pearson outlined programs which should aid in increasim! the enrollment at PSC. , The ~irst was the Tuesday's Women's program which came mto eXJstence last summer because of an appropriation of-funds from the state legislature. The program was originally set up for 50 women to take six hours of credit free of charge. Their only fees consist of $15.00 for the use of the Student Union and the · price of books. The class counts for regular credit if the worrian _decides t~ go on for her degree. There are now 54 women enrolled in the program for this semester because some women only audited. the coilrse .and some are only taking 3 hours. This particular program is not offered in the summer time and it is not known.If it-will be of. fered next fall. · · According to Pearson PSC is reasonableycertain to have a graduate program in elementary education by this summer. This cooperative program would be in conjunction with another college. At this time both Wayne State;mdthe University of Nebraska are being considered. Dr. Pearson went on to say he felt there was no basis for the fiscal analyst report. "Projections are a risky business. Projections will only come true if cireumstances stay the same," said Pearson. "A more concerted effort is being made at PSC to positively affect our attrition rate,:' he added. Acc? to ?r. Pearson an overall effort is being made in each md1v1duahzed department to retain the present quota of students as well as recruiting new students. As a part of this program a strident-teacher evaluation committee has been set up to derive some sort of way of evaluating faculty to make sure the staff is doing its job. "The committee," according to Pearson ''should be ready to give out a report as to what type of evaluation will be made and in what form by the end of the semester." Dr. Pearson also stated that faculty will be evaluated by their peers-colleagues-students division heads and by the administration. ' In answer to the questions whether or not he agreed or disagreed with what the fiscal analyst said about high school students going out and finding jobs rather than going on to college Dr. Pearson commented: "We have definitely seen a trend which moved from the liberal arts type education to an emphasis on occupational preparation. The ()urrent decline in enrollment in most of the community technical schools has come to a peak. I think students have become more interested in a complete education involving not only the skills but the mind." Dr. Pearson feels that trends from declining enrollment to increased enrollment come and go like this. Ife added that be feels there is now a better emphasis on human relitions .. ·1·"""-'·· --According to Pearson we are beginning to See a reverse in the trend. With the current changes that have evolved in almost 1every field. Pearson feels education is now involving people from all age groups and from every walk of life. Dr. Pearson felt that the biggest fallacy in .the fiscal analyst report was the fact that not only the traditional age group of students are coming to college and ~ was .,noftaken into account in any way. . ·. · "The academic community can be used as· a retooling for ?omplete change in a wh0lenewarea-e8~i;iiiy with as many Jobs that are becoming obsolete in this day and age," concluded! Pearson in an interview belti last Thursday; November 7th.

wHours For Girls Dorm Student ciation discussed several assorted topics at their meeting last Tuesday. Areport by the Student Affairs Committee brought up talk of the school's rights pertaining to drugs and alcohol on campus. Discussion was tabled until a later meeting. The students rights and responsibilities were brought up. The new open dorm hours were presented for DavidsonPalmer and Clayburn-Mathews. The new hours for DavidsonPalmer passed. The hours for an answer to any problems for there would not be any questions

answered. Discussion was continued with the suggestion of having a rap session once a Clayburn-Mathews were not acted upon for they were not typed up .. ' The suggestion was made to have a complaint session open to the students to make their complaints without the presence of faculty members. The point was made that this would not be month at one of the SGA meetings instead of the scheduled meeting, with several high-ranking school .officials present. This was viewed with general approval.

Clubs On Campus The Peru Social Science Society is another of the many clubs of the PSC campus. They meet every first Monday of the month in the Fine Arts building in room 105. The requirements to become a member of this club is a student must have an interest in the social sciences although it is not required to have this as a student's major. The club has a membership of 15 and the dues are $3.50, which covers everything but special events.

All people with an interest in this club should notify


the president, Anne Tackett. The black students on campus have their own club which was orginially called the AfroAmerican club but now has the title The Black Student Union. This club was designed to give the black student on campus the ability to keep some of their own black culture. The club holds its meetings in the Fine Arts building in room 105 and membership is open to any student who is interested. The number of members in this club is not really known. According to the president, Jim Ford, no special events have been planned for the rest of this semester.

PSC Defines Their Role According to Legislative Bill 1054 which was passed early last spring in the Legislature Peru State College is directed to define its institutional role and how it is to be met on a 5 and 10 program.. New vice president of financial affairs Dr. Michael Stewart has been appointed by Peru State president, Douglas Pearson, as chairman of the Future and Planning Committee .which will report to the Legislature. Dr. Stewart, whose committee

is composed of five Peru faculty members, said their report "will get the house (Peru State College) in order will also establish credibility which is the best way of getting adequate funding for the college." The committees' results are in the process of being adopted and are due back to the Legislature on December 1. Other members of the committee are: Mary Ruth Wilson, Dr. Lester Russell, Dr. Daryl Long, Paul Kruse and Fred Hamann.

''Twirling Fun" Says Color Girl By FRANK D' ADDESA

"I like to twirl," said Shelly

Able, "and I thought I might as well put my talents to work. I like doing it because it's fun; not everyone has a chance to try it; I'm just glad I had the chance." With the football season over for the Peru State Bobcats, it marked the last performance for Miss Able as the schools' color girl for this year. Since she is a junior, who is majoring in math and business administration, the daughter of Mr and Mrs Frank A. Able of Auburn said she will tryout again next fall for the position. Shelly began taking twirling lessons at 5 while she lived in Nebraska City and for 6 years was the student of the foJmer Karen Rankin who once twirled at Peru. When her family moved to Lindsburg, Kansas, she attended clinics there for the art when she was 13 and 14. She then received training while at Auburn Junior and Senior High Schools from ex-golden girl of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, Joyce Burns. Shelly is presently taking lessons from Sue Koontz, who is now teaching at the Middle School in Auburn. She also is a former golden girl at the University in Lincoln. Miss Able, who is 20, has i earned 18 trophies and 15 medals

Financial Relief Seen In '75-76 The '75-'76 school year may see some financial relief for Peru State College students that have received money from V.A. or Social Securit)'. benefits. The ability of these students to be eligible for the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant (BEOG), was discussed at a 1 meeting attended by Donald Miller, Director of Financial Aids at PS<;. Miller, also the State Training Officer for Nebraska Financial Aids AdIDinistrators, also 'said that new inflation and assist .allowances may also be addM to the BEOG for '75-'76. Mille,r got his information from attendihg a · training session for the accounting .principles involv~ in the federal funding procedlies on a college level. Mr Miller said the training will help him in the two Nebraska work shops that will be held this month. One of the workshops will be in North Platte on the 11th and the other in Fremont on the 15th.

of Nebraska when she was 11. The contest was held in Salina. Kansas, and based on wise, appearance and personality as well as twirling. '·'Poise, patience, endurance and motivation are the virtues needed in order to twirl" believes the brown-eyed, 5-5, 115 pounder. Miss Able said the advantages of twirling were exercise and gaining _better coordination; she said there were no disadvantages. When asked about performing in her scanty outfit in cold weather she answered "I move faster when it's cold." Shelly can twirl a baton flag, a single baton, 2 batons, a double flag, fire batons, knives and a hoop. She rates the single baton as the hardest to twirl.

Views Given On Dance The hard rock beat of Choil;e entertained Peru State College in the second dance of the year. The four man group played out some well known tunes and some not to well knoirn ones as Peru Staters danced until about eleven o'clock. The crowd was as large as could be expected for the group, which played many instrumental tunes that had students. listening, instead of dancing. Most of the students agreed that the group was better for listening than dancing.

.People have a tendency not to dance to either long songs or songs that are not well known, both of which Choice played frequently. The dance, which began at eight, November 5, wasn't really started until about ten, according to some students there. People didn't really show much interest until they had had time to get some beer in them. pue to the elections the bars w.eren't open until eight p.m.

Ed, CI~k, director of the dramatic activities at Peru is excited about his sec~nd production here. The production to follow the year's premiere, "Born Yesterday", is a musical, "Company", and is scheduled to be presented December 11-13) What does he have to say about it? "It's going to knock everyone's eyes out." This he accounts to having a fine work, a cooperative cast, and a plan to use integrated media in the performance. The cast is extremely cooperative and hardworking. The rehearsals have been underway for about a month now and they have had their lines memorized for some time leaving plenty of time for th~ ever-so-important duty of the development of character.

Peru State College is in the planning stages . of a new gymnasium which will be a adequately facilitated combination of Gym, and Health Center. According to vicepresident Dr. Stewart , the college has decided to attempt this project because of the inadequacy of the old gym. Because it was built as a chapel in 1915, the old gym does not have the proper underlying support for present' activities. The old gym does not 1contain classrooms, conference )rooms, 'dance studios, wrestling /~d weightlifting rooms. The jhigh cost of maintenance and :repairs of the old gym has also \directed the college into this new project. Dr. Stewart added that because it is still in the planning ,stage, the college does not have . ;a definite site or an official date ·for construction. The college has 1 asked 'the state legislature to appropriate funds in the 75-76 fiscal year. This means the earliest construction date would bein 1976. and would take from a year to 18 months to .complete the 111,000 sq. ft. building. Adjoining the gym will be two outside tennis courts, and a parking lot which will bring the area size up to approximately 274,000 sq. ft. The Health Center will be approximately 24,000 sq. ft. The Health Center will primarily contain two examination rooms, waiting room, a laboratory, and a treatment room. The gym itself will hold 2,000 spectators and will provide normal facilities besides a wrestling room, a gymnastics room, handball courts, a swimming pool, men and women's weight rooms, dance studios, classrooms, and an indoor track.

Sex Revolution Created By "Open Attitudes" By Virginia MUla To our surprise, after an interview with Terry Pardeck, we found that the supposed Sexual Revolution is nothing but a myth created by the new "open" attitude towards , sex. This · statement has been proven true1 by sociologists who carried out surveys such as: Terman, Kinsey, and Burgess-Wallin , studies held in the United States. According to them the behavior concerning pre-maritalrelationships has definitely not changed; it has been the same since the 1920's. Instead, it's the . attitude towards P-M-R that has varied greatly from the standpoint of the "new" broadmindedness in this aspect. Before, sex was considered taboo in our society, consequently nobody ever dared talked about it, and we were unaware of all the P-M-R ac-

tually going on. However, now that we have sexual education in schools, and that priests talk openly about these matters, people feel free to discuss sex at ease. Nevertheless we still have what sociologists call a "double standard." This is when people preach one· idea or principle but act or do the opposit, in this case by saying P-1\F R is immoral, but yet doing it. The statistical figures that the surveys mentioned before came up with were: 70 per cent males and 50 per cent females have been having P-M-R since the 1920's. Some of the reasons for this 70-50 break-up are: normally females having P-M-R will marry the person they were having relations with. This ·also holds true for a large nillnber of' the males.

Project To Review Education Programs The Student Education Association of Nebraska, which is part of the National Student Education Association, has a project to review the education programs in Nebraska. To accomplish this they named committees that were in charge of filling out a certain question naire; these were the ECC's, Education Criteria Committees. As part of the program, Peru had a committee made up of a faculty advisor and four student representatives: Mike Currier, as the faculty advisor; and Amy Walsh, Sue Zimford, Sue Scott, and Julie Garrett as the student representatives. When Peru's ECC got together to fill out the questionnaire the· student representatives brought

up complaints they had heard, their own, and suggestions for improvements in the teacher preparation program. At this point Mi,ke Currier suggested the Input session with Dr. Scherer to straighten out things. The session was held November 4at Morgan Hall with an attendance of approximately 40 male and female students. One of the main ideas that resulted from the imput session was to find out what would be the general student reaction to the idea of taking the nine weeks method classes during the summer. This would enable the senior education students to do their student teaching for the whole 18 weeks of the semester; thus, attaining more experience.

"Company", a dazzling musical by Stephen Soudheim with book by George Furth, appeared , on the Peru State College Auditorium stage Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights last week. The fast movmg, hilarious musical has proven to be one of the finest productions ever at PSC. An outstanding cast, director and -0rchestra have jelled to create a dynamic, touching commentary on marriage. The action, set in present day

New York, revolves around Robert, a single young man with more than his share of wellwishing married friends. ThE one thought on their minds is to help Robert by convincing him he should find a girl and get married. Invitations to dinner and nights on the town with his married acquanintances give Robert a chance to see first hand the games his friends play to make their marriages work. The couples present the classic sarcastic view of marriage telling him how mucn they wish they were still single while being "involved" in situations which only prove to him. how dependent they are on their marriages. John Chatelain, Auburn, is outstanding as Robert with the rest of the cast fantastically supplementing his performance. Robert's girlfriends - Marla (Liz Deason, Auburn), Kathy (Karen Doeden, Cook), and April (Jeanne Remington, Ord) are superb in their roles. A strong cast throughout highlights the show. The orchestra, accompanying such well-known songs as "Another Hundred People", "The Ladies Who Lunch" and "Side by Side" is handled excellently by conductor Dr. David Edris with vocal direction bv Dr. Edward Camealy. ·

Clark To Expand Mass Comm Program Mr Edward J. Clark is expanding the mass communications awareness of PSC thru the use of new and different ideas which he has interjected into his Fundamentals of Speech classes. Mr Clark emphasized the fact that he leads his classes through the basics of communication, and requires students to give 6 speeches at the beginning of the semester. Mr Clark then moves the class into group workings, such as writing TV shows. This group action, Professor Clark feels, gives the students different ways to communicate persuasively. According to Clark persuasive communication in groups is essential because the individual usually cannot envoke change by himself. The drama professor went on to point out special group action such as lobbyists as reflecting the persuasive power of a group, and this communication tool will be very valuable to the student.

Bobcat Moves Out Of Peru The bobcat purchased a few years ago to serve as Peru's mascot was given to Lincoln's Children Zoo last summer because he was being mistreated, not properly taken care of, and hardly used in any occasion since he was untamed.

When she was asked as to how the SGA could better function she answered very quickly, "I would like to know how students think we could better function." "The Peru students do not give me the feeling of apathy, they give me the feeling of disorganization," she stated. The SGA could better perfonil it's duty if there was a greater increase in the communication, and if the representatives would place the serving of the students high on their list of priorities.

To Xmas Party

Secretaries Association Promotes Yule Spirit

Student Center Board members were invited to a Christmas Party at the Elks club in·Nebraska City December 6, at 7:30. This was a special meeting for SCB and a fitting ending to a good semester. Some of the high points of the semester were: four concerts, one including the world famous Ass!f.iation; a Coffeehouse in the .Bob-Inn featuring a pie eating contest on the second night; nine movies plus the Schlitz movie orgy; and just last week a game tournaµient to decide the college champions in pinball, foosball, bowling, tabletennis, and pool.

There have been a lot of bad things said about the conditions of Peru State College and the area it is situated in; now it's about time someone said something about what's down here. Again this year the Secretaries Association of PSC got together for a Christmas party. For who knows how many years in a row now these people took the time to make punch and cookies for anyone who wanted them. ' Anyone who has ever been a secretary should realize how demanding the job can be. Most of their time is spent running around getting forms, typing letters, mailing invitations, and trying to be helpful to questioning students. Why would these busy people want to take the time to make cookies and coffee (the punch ' was made by Broughton Foods) for the people on campus? It's easy; they enjoy it. It makes them happy to be of service in any way. The job wasn't easy, either. Each person was asked to bring 2-3 dozen cookies {most of which were home.baked). Then they

Wresding Team Now At 5-1 Peru State's wrestling team traveled to the Unviersity of Nebraska at Omaha for a tridual Wednesday, December 4, and earned a pair of wins against one loss. The Bobcats defeated Nebraska Wesleyan 42-10 and Dana 39-12 before bowing to the hosting Mavericks, 24-15. Mark Yori, freshman 118 pounder from Northeast, Pennsylvania, won all three of his matches as did sophomore Kent Coleman, wrestling at the 190 slot from Oakland, Iowa. The 'Cats picked up six pins against Nebraska Wesleyan and three against Dana, but only Coleman earned a pin against the always tough UN-0 squad. Coach Marty Dwine was "pleased by the total performance of the team in all three duals." Commenting on the UNi0 match Dwine said, "If a couple of close decisions had . been in our favor, the momentum of the match would have stayed with us, and the outcome of the match might have been different." The second year mentor was extremely· pleased with the number of people from Peru that made the trip to follow the team. He called the experience of having 50 to 60 people following the squad a, "moral boosting experience for the team. We let everyone know that Peru State College backs their wrestling team home and away." Peru State 42 vs Nl)braska Wesleyan 10

Big Blue Defense Ranks 13th Nationally Even though the Peru State . Bobcat football team finished with a 4-6 season mark, they have something to be proud of. The Big Blue defense was tanked 13th, nationally, in total · defense after their season finale with Doane. This. ranking is an accomplishment to be credited to Mr Chris Showers, defense coordinator, and his defensive charges. When the Bobcat football players showed up for practice last August, Mr Showers and Jim Persons, l! defensive line coach, gave them the tough assignment of learning the "split-four" defense. They worked at it together and formed a cohesive defensive unit.

According to Coach Showers, they developed a lot of pride in their defensive work and really helped each other out on the playing field and during practice sessions. Showers said that .the defensive unit should get the credit for Peru's national ranking in total defense. Coach . Showers listed the following players that made the Big Blue defense, "a defense, to be reckoned with." Playing defensive tackles were Jerry Weber, Ralph Kuykendall, and Ray Woerlen. Defensive ends were Ted· Rippen and Lloyd Derrico.a tte. Filling up the defensive line were Mike Hall, "Hero" linebacker; and Ken . Handy, "Willie"_ linebacker.

Backing up the aefensive lirie were Dave Young, "Bobcat" linebacker, Mark Hambleton and Steve Wolpert, "Mike" linebackers. In the secondary, Bill Hosack, Dave Werner and Tom Zabawa played the two comer back positions. Filling out the secondary is Stan Talyor as a safety. Robert Kfajicek, a Peru State offensive guard, was recently named to the Nebraska College Conference All-Star team. A senior from Papillion, Nebr., 'he also received a honorable mention for the NAIA District 11 "All-Star" team. Other Bobcat players receiving NAIA honorable mentions were Dennis Stones, ~ed Rippen, and Steve Wolpert .

P.Sc9C. Wrestlers

Experience is the. key word that describes the 1974-75 Peru State wrestling squad under second year coach, Marty Dwine. Dwine has 13 lettermen returning from last season's team that accumulated a 16-5 dual mark, plus the championship in the Nebraska College Conference, and the runnerup spot in NAIA, District 11 competition. The returning lettermen and their wrestling weights this year are: Gary Lesoing - 126, Jim Fuentes - 126, Ken Stanley - 134, Craig Bennington - 134 -both are from Center, Iowa. Bud Frohling - 150, John Whisler - 158, Dennis Johnk - 158, Dean Brooks - 167, Terry Kelly - 167, Bob Brown 177, Kent Coleman - 190, Fred Marisett -·100, and Jim Rezac Heavyweight. Dwine believes the main strengths of the team are the number of lettermen, plus the return of Lesoing at 126. Lesoing missed almost all of last year with a back injury. He wrestled in very few matches, and would have been the defending NCC champion at 126 had he not been injured. · Three freshmen are working hard for the top position at 118 lbs. Mark Yori from Northeast Pennsylvania, Joe Winkler from North Platte and Lonnie Quinn

from Edison, Nebraska, have all impressed Dwine at the spot. Other top freshmen, their weight class and hometown include: Rick Norval - 126Seward, Kurt Scott - 134 or 142 Corning, Iciwa, Wayne Rizzo -142 - Glen Cave, New York, Ivan Stable - 167 - St. Charles, Iowa. and Fred Fritz - heavyweight from Omaha. Jim McKean from Omaha and Ray Czaswicz from Burnham, Illinois, are expected to help the team as returning squadmen. A big question mark for the 'Cats is how well Frohling and Whilsler perform at higher weight classes than last season. Frohling moved from 142 to 150 Coach Dwine labels the practice sessions so far as "good and hard." He goes on to say, "We have had good team hustle so far, no one is holding back. We have set a goal to become one of the best small college wrestling teams in the nation." Lack of aeptn at the higher weights is concerning Dwine at the momment. He has only one 177 pounder in Brown, and'two 190 pounders in Marisett and Coleman. The opener for the Bobcats will be November 30 at the Graceland Invitational at Lamoni, Iowa.

McElroy, Stones To Wach Womens Team Coaching the gals is Doug McElroy, Shenandoah, Iowa, senior physical education major assisted by Dennis Stones, PE · senior from Sabetha, Kansas. Although neither young man has coached women's sports previously, McElroy and Stones agree that experience they are gaining will be· valuable when seeking teaching jobs after graduation from Peru State. "We've had no problems, and we both enjoy coaching," McElroy commented. McElroy has coached little league softball and Stones is a novice. Mary Jo Mier, women;s physical education instructor at PSC, commended the• two for their dedication anci ability shown in pre-season 1practice. Daily conditioning and practice takes place in the PSC gym for an hour and forty-five minutes after the men's cage squad leaves the floor. "The trial rule in use this season, 20 minute halves instead of quarter breaks, will have a big effect on women's basketball this season,'' McElroy predicted. "Team conditioning will be important."

Praising-his squad as ''having some pretty good players," while admitting college basketball experience among members is sparse, McElroy designated probable starters as: Forwards - Patti ColHns (Fremont junior), Allie Stoltenberg (Omaha, .junior) guards - Tami Coleman (Avoca, Iowa freshman), Gail Harmon (Dawson junior); center Nancy Sepp, (Arlington Heights, Illinois freshman.) Harmon· and Stoltenberg are the only starters with college experience on the maples. Additional squad members are: Forwards - Twila Beck (Louisville freshman), -Penny Baker (Cedar Creek freshman), Ardella Klein (Adams freshman), Diana Jones and Bobbie Wilsori, (Omaha freshmen). G~ards - Debbie Scholl (Falls City sophomore), Teresa Gebers (Johnson freshman), Kim Hogan and Pam Hogan (Omaha freshmen). Centers - Lorinda Frank (Johnson freshman) and Jacqueline Kirksey (Omaha junior).

.Storant Runs Best Time In NAIA Salina Meet Ron Storant, Peru State sophomore from DuBois, ran the fastest time of his career in NAIA National cross country competition Saturday (November 16) at Salina, Kansas. His 25: 14 finish rated 55th in a field of 411 runners representing

29 of 32 NAIA districts.. The five mile coone was charted on the Salina l(llilicipal Golf Course. Coach Brin Jones, Auburn, reports running conditions were good - 55--56 degrees, 10-15 mile per hour wind and sunny.



New Bobcat Cagers At

Baseball Meeting Held December 11

Peru State

DUANE IDEUS (6'2" - 175 lbs.) is another freshman on the Bobcat cager squad from Adams, Nebraska. Duane, playing much of his high school· basketball at forward and center, is now playing at guard for young Bobcats. Duane has all the capabilities and desire to become a good college basketball player states Coach Schnaser.

Tim Macke (6'0 - 170 lbs.) is a returning squadman from last season. Tim is also battling for the guard position for the Bobcats. All conference high school star from Alma High School at Alma, Neb., he is also a catcher on the Bobcat baseball team. Tim is as valuable to the team as anyone can be, states Coach Schnaser.

Coach Tom Fitzgerald held the first meeting for prospective PSC baseball players DecembJlr 11. The meeting was short and he · outlined the basic way the team would be run. The players will be starting their practice shortly after they return .from vacetion by the use of a batting cage. A pitching machine will be set up in the cage so that players can get to work on their hitting. On February 3 the pitchers and, catchers will start working together in the gym.

RAY KAPPEL The January 10th snowstorm will go down in history as the great blizzard of '75. The blinding wind continued to build a snowy prison which trapped many students, but a few had enough foresight to provide themselves with a month's provisions. The aftermath left ·-us in a winter Wonderland of misery.

Drama for High Schools EMILY ROSEWELL This semester the Peru State College Players will again be touring an incredible number of high schools in Nebraska, Iowa; Kansas, and Missouri. The purpose is to recruit high school students with an interest and ability in dramatics. Mr Ed Clark, Peru State College's dramatics professor, confided that there is a second purpose more beneficial to the actors than to the high school students. "When I was in the service in Germany," he reminisced, "I travelled with a touring group. We performed every day in ·a different situation." He said that his Peru State College actors have had a similar experience this year, and that he has noticed a significant improvement in the quality of their performance. OF MICE AND MEN Tryouts for the second semester tours were held on December 16. Members of the newly reformed group include Mike Streit, Joe Munn, Rita Miller, and Mr Clark himself. One of the plays chosen for this semester's touring is an adaptation of Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men made by Dr. James Rockey of the Fargo:

Students Leave in Wake Of College Board Decision BY RANDY DUNLAP The College Affairs Board convened Thursday the 15th for the first time in 5 years to consider the appeal of a dual suspension resulting from an on-campus marijuana arrest. Becky Larriberies and Terry Funkhouser, after losing their appeals to the Student Affairs Board on the 14th by a close vote, appealed their case to no avail two days hence. Ms Funkhouser said that an appeal to the board of Regents of the state colleges is doubtful. The Co-eds expressed sorrow at their pending departure from Peru and the college. Becky Lamberies, a business major, entered PSC in the fall of '74 on a special abilities music scholarship. Her grade point average last semester was 6.9. She plans to do (secretarial work, she says?) upon completion of her education. · Tery Funkhouser came to Peru in the fall of '73 on a special abilities scholarship for drama. She was a member of the Student Center Board and secretary of the Student Governing Association as a freshman. Funkhouser served as president of the sophomore class in the fall of 1974, and was awarded the schools top journalism honor. In September of 1974, Terry became the editor of the Ped. Both students report that they are uncertain of plans for the future at this time.

From The Editor's Desk Since my appointment as editor of this semester's Pedagogian I've been working oh what l consider the major goals and objectives of this paper. · · · · The Ped staff will be working towards increasing the quality and coverage of ·the paper while reflecting the reader's interest. I intend to increase the quality through the staff I've appointed. Along with "veterans" of last semester's Ped, I've added some more nahres to the list. These names include some well known PSC scribblers and some unknown but aspir~ng writers. Strong visual· aid comes from Larry Kosch an excellent photographer who will be providing a double service for the paper. Larry has been appointed sports ahd photography editors. The voice of experience comes ·from Frank D' Addesa, a senior journalism major who has served numerous years for the Pedagogian. Frank has 1been asked to make a return engagement as Contributing Editor. The guiding ligbt will be provided by the sponsers, Mr Everett Browning and Mr Terry Pardeck. The coverage should increase despite the fact the Ped is understaffed. There are over 30 clubs and organizations on campus. This makes it impossible to cover all oftheir activities. The Ped will ·report the major events of the clubs, but the coverage of all clubs is an unachievable task. I am asking the smaller clubs to report their own news. This will be a tremendous help ih coverage. If the clubs comply I will be able to spread the staff over different areas providing more news for the paper. This excludes the major' activities ·clubs and political organizations on campus who will have the. Ped's complete coverage. The Pedagogian's readership covers not only students but the faculty and over ·400 reader8 by mail. Their interests should ·be reflected in the Pedagogian. I will encourage the students, faculty, and the readers by mail to voice their interests and opinions in the Ped. The campus population can contact me in person, or leave a note 1n room 218 of the Education Building.

Ray Boeche,, an accomplished artist at PSC, will add his talents to some new projects this year. The first is a Minimal Art abstraction at Morgan Hall.

displayed the kind of cool determination of a group that has paid its dues and is about lo lake-off. · Having recently divorced themselves from "Kool and The Gang," (Silverodo was the gang, and most of the music) they have concentrated their performances in the midwest. Their music is much too versatile to tie lo one style. Silverodo brings a Blues to a rock beat that is mellow but moves. To Rock they appear lo have done in a different sort of way only what Carlos Santana has done before; add a real dimension with flutes and Congas. Todd Young and Dennis McNeil's congas rhythm differs from Santana's Latin music in its African origin and rounded out a very full sound in conjunction with Gene Washington's and Craig Stewart's wellexecuted duel leads. Silverodo's 4 hour performance before more than 100 lively students was a complete success.

THE SPORT SHOP 707 Central AYe.

Kush Korner At this stage of the 1974-75 basketball season, Peru State is th€ only college cage team in the Cornhusker state with a perfect record of 13 losses and no wins. Some people are saying that we have poor players and-or a poor coach. Others say it is the tough schedule that's beating us. In my opinion, part of the reason why· we don't win is due to the lack of spirit and support by the fans at the ball games'. Let me cite a few examples to demonstrate my point. In the home game with Bellevue, Dec. 16, poor team support and sportmanship was shown by the fans'toward the players and the officials. At times, the fans were on the verge of disrupting the game with their booing and cat-ealls. This created bad feelings by the Bobcat players toward their opponent and the officials. Anytime you lose your concentration in a game .like basketball, you're likely to Jose your shirt. · Here's another point in case. When the Bobcat team came out of room to start the second half of the Doane game, Jan. 9, I actuallr counted four ... yes .. .four people clapping hands. Wilen your are behind, 44-28 at halftime, and return to the gym floor to see those four people clap hands, it makes you think that you already lost the game. In all of these games, I've noticed how our cheerleaders were standing at the end ?f the court, doing some cheers. They seem to be cheering by themselves and not leading the crowd. The problem may lie in the separation of the girls and the crowd. Why cheer when there's no one in front of you to lead the cheers??? Since that we now have recognized the problem, what can we do about it?? I propose a four-step solution to solve it and help our Bobcat team to win a few games: 1.) Pep Band. The apprearance of the pep band at the Tarkio game, Jan. 9, was a w.elcome sight. According on one of the Bobcat players, Mark Hansen, it was a real spirit-lifter. The band should stay for the second half to help with the cheers and play during time-outs. 2.l Cheei:leaders. Have a few seats reserved for the cheerleaders in front of the main crowd ..They can, more ef-, fectively, lead the crowd in cheering. Why don't the girls and the crowd form a spirit line before the game.and after halftime to cheer our team's appearance?? 3.) Active crowd support and sportsmanship. The cheerleaders are there to help you cheer. Help them cheer and.. the Bobcat teani can benefit from your concerted efforts. Respect the decision of the officials, how unpopular their decisions may be. The booing may raise the ire of the Bobcats' opponents! · 4.) You. You, as a Bobcat fan, can help the Bobcats on to victory by showing up at the games and yell your darn best. The sight of a packed home crowd in the gym may'inspire the Bobcats to play to win. I urge every able-bodied Bobcat fan to go to the Jan. 24 home contest against Chadron State and support our great Bobcat cagers!!!

BohcatsLose Again Larry Kosch Frustration is the word to use when one tries to describe the effort of the Bobcat roundbail cagers to win a game this season. ,They have gone 13 straight games without a victory. This includes four tournament losses suffered during the semester break, and three defeats in second semester cage action. In the December 20-21 Buena Vista tournament action at Storm Lake, Iowa, the Bobcats dropped an opening round game, 98-67,, to Buena Vista and a 101-63 decision to Midland. Poor shooting plagued Peru in both contests. The Bobcats fared no better at tlie Hastings Holiday Tournament, December 27-28. They were humiliated by Hastings, 132-55, and dropped a 86-70 decision to Bethany College. After the Hastings contest, Coach Schnaser called a team meeting to stress the importance of running an established offense with team play. Their performance against Bethany was a far cry from the opening season 151-52 defeat by the same team. The home court advantage was of no use to the Bobcats as they fell to Doane, 84-67, January 7. The Bobcats enjoyed a brief 6-0 lead before Doane warmed up and took the lead away for good. Doane expanded their 44-28 halftime lead to 50-29 for their biggest lead of the game. Peru cut the 20 point lead down to twelve, 75-63, but they never got any closer during the rest of the game. Peru State got a case of cold shooting hands in the home contest with Tarkio. January 9. But, it was too late for Peru to recover and the Bobcats suffered a 68-37 defeat.

Matmen Grapple to 2nd In Central MisSouriMeet After three dual meets this second semester, Peru State matmen's dual record stands at .8-2. They lost to powerful Adams State 26-17, Jan. 9, and beat Doane and Southwest Missouri State 33-21 and 26-12 respectively in a double dual, Jan. 13. Adams State, fifth ranked in NAIAratings, gained a 21-0 lead by a forfeit, three decisions and a pin. John Whisler and Bud Frohling gained points for Peru State by a 5-3 decision and a pin respectively. Bob Brown drew his match in the 177 class. Adams State wrapped up the match with a 5-1 decision over Kent Coleman in the 190 tussle. With the match in hand, Adams State forfeited the HW enc~nter .,.In the first match of a double dual, Jan. 13, Peru State picked nn five forfeits to out last Doane, Dennis Johnk,. Bob Brown, and Kent Coleman were the Peru matmen picking up the forfeits. The. only other Peru matman to pick up points was Ray Czaszwicz, who won by a 10-5 decision. The · nightcap of the double dual, Jan. 13, saw Peru State and Southwest Missiouri State run neck-to-neck until the last three

matches. Peru State won them by two decisions and a forfeit to win the dual, 26-12. Peru State wrestlers surprised their competitors and them: selves when they claimed second place in the Central Missouri University Tournament, Dec.1314. Their 101 point tally was second fo Southern Illinois University's 1331/2 point total. Placing third was Kansas State University with 941;2 points. Wayne State, the only other Nebraska college entry, finished seventh with 31/2 points. There were eight scoring finishes for Peru State. Two championships, three consolation championships, one second place and two fourth place honors were earned by the Peru wrestlers. The two champions for Peru State were Bud ·Frohling and Kent Coleman. Frohling decisioned Merril Norris of Central Missouri State 3-0. Coleman won his championship by default over Jim Marsh of Eastern Illinois U. The three consolation champs for Peru were Mark Yori, Ivan Strahle, and Bob Brown. Yori decisioned Jim Reizer of Southern Illinois U. 10-4. Strahle

won his match with ·rony Ruggari of Eastern Illinois U. with a 10-5 decision. Brown handed Dave Gannaway of Illinois State U. a 6-1 decision to claim the consolation championship in his weight class ..

College of St. Mary-Omaha dominated play on their home court December 10 for their 58-27 victory. No PSC player reached double figure scoring and managed only 11 of 63 field goal attempts. St. Mary's Ann Heller totaled 20 points to lead her welldisciplined squad. Tarkio employed a devastating man to man defense and two hot shooters to outscore Peru 93-23 December 11 in Tarkio. Owl high scorers Connie .. Cook with 36 points and Dianne Morley with 31 also pulled down 22 and 14 rebounds respectively. Gail Harmon was top scorer for Peru with 10.

Peru, while still on the short end of a 56-41 final score, played better basketball December 13, according to coaches, against the University of NebraskaLincoln junior varsity in Lincoln. Leading at halftime, 26-22, McElroy commended Peru'~ team effort and was pleased with balanced scoring. Twila Beck had a good board game, "We tired too much in the second half ~o keep up the pace, and when UN-L pulled ahead, we just couldn't come back," McElroy summarized. eru a e , oane 118 - Mark Yori (Pl won by forfeit; 126 -'- Gary Lesoing (P) won by forfeit; 134 - Joe Winkler (P) was decisioned by Mike Pflaster (D) 6-5; 142 Alonzo Collins (P) won by forfeit; 158 - Ray Czaszwicz (Pl decisioned John Pflaster (D) 105; 167 - Jim McKean (P) defaulted to Dave Hersley (D); 177 - Bob Brown (P) won by forfeit; 190- Kent Coleman (P) won by forfeit; HW - Ron Hoemann (P) was pinned by George Ruffen (D) 6:54.

T4e Front Page Hits the Street "The Front Page" is coming to Peru! No, it isn't a competitor for the "Peru Challenge" - but simply the new name and planned motif for Rex's Cafe. Rex's, formerly owned by Rex Rains, has been -sold to J. L. Schmidt, editor of the "Peru Challenge", the community's weekly newspaper. - The combination cafe and bar closed in mid-December and reopened this weekend under the new ownership. Mr Schmidt will relinquish his editorship of the "Challenge" in order to manage his new business. He said, "a new editor will be hired" and the publication will continue. "People are relying too much on it (the Peru Challenge) to let it die now." The "Challenge" originated in February of 1973. Asked why he chose to purchase the business, Mr Schmidt said he felt the "restaurant is needed as much as the newspaper and it will be as big a challenge as the 'Challenge'. The Front Page will operate seven days and offer Sunday noon meals, a practice dropped in .recent months. Mr Schmidt anticipates serving fresh donuts mornings and hopes to add a salad bar and possibly a sandwich bar later. Plans also include serving popcorn and possibly pizza in the bar. Pinball machines, foosball, and a pool ·table remain for entertainment. Mr Schmidt hopes to reinstate some of the popular specials such as "2 for's'', plus initiate new programs for added enjoyment. · Service will begin at 7 a.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. Sundays.

PAF Helping p;y, Students Benefit

One hundred and sixteen thousand dollars has been jointly provided to Peru State College 'Students through the efforts of the Peru Achievement foundation and the utilization of money made available through a federal funding program. For approximately 180 students, this money represents the difference between getting an education and going out into the world unprepared. This is one means of building student enrollment and increasing the educational value of the institution to the area.

Mr Bill Snyder, director of the foundation, explained its function, outlined the services provided to students, and detailed how PSC alumni, interested businesses and organizations, as well as students themselves provide the basic funding for the program. Approximately $5,000 in scholarship grants come from the interest in a permanent trust fund established by the foundation and Bobcat Boosters. Eleven thousand was raised by the foundation and matched by appropriated tax money (9 to 1 ratio) to establish a capital of $11l,066.70. This money is utilized by students in the form of low-interest loans (3 per cenlJ with repayment schedules coinciding with the student's earning power. This generally

increases with the amount of education the student acquires.Mr Snyder explained that the $11,000 invested in the National Direct Student Program Loan (NDSL) was contributed by alumni, area 41Jusinesses, faculty, friends, and

students of the college. "Living Memorial" Mr Snyder said that many supporters of the college stipulate in their wills a sum of money which remains permanently endowed in that person's name.

Peru State chipped in three points to make their halftime lead, 15-11. The second half saw a St Mary surge and the Bobkittens could not handle their offensive attack, thus they fell behind.

the tape library. According to Mr Paul Kruse, Director of Instructional Media Center, this is one of the few television studios in Nebraska that lets the students become involved.

A motion was passed at last .Tuesday nights' meeting that the Peru State Student Governing Association favors status quo on the merger issue. The motion, made by Senator Scott McKercher, also favors Legislative Bill 128 over Peru mergIDg with the University of Nebraska at Lincoln if a choice ·must be made between the latter two proposals. LB128 would merge Peru State -with Nebraska's technical colleges. The SGA's findings were sent to Peru President Douglas Pearson who asked the governing body for their opinion on the matter. The SGA also voted the Peru Pedagogian newspaper staff the ''What's Right With. Peru" award for the month of January. The Bobcat wrestling team was the only other group nominated. Both will receive certificates of recognition.

meeting to add the fluoride. A petition last summer to vote against the issue received little response, according to Council President Lyle McKercher, indicates the people of Peru want fluoridation. City Clerk Arlyn Moran wrote to 10 State Health Department recommended companies for their specifications and recommendations. Fluoride is available ID pellet, power, or liquid form . "The installation and initial fluoride supply will cost an estimated $900 to $1,000 for each of Peru's two pumphouses, commented J .L. Schmidt, council member. Additional expenses of the treatment include training maintenance personnel. Mr Schmidt said, "the project will be paid through the water fund," but he admitted, "local residents may anticipate an increase in their water bills." A council member explained that "many Peru homes do not have water meters and the residents pay only the minimum monthly charge for water usage. The age of the water equipment has caused frequent problems and added to operational expenses. The water department needs mone:1 and one logical solution is an increase in residents monthly payments."

~1, 1974, more than 9000 students viewed various programs. There were 800 programs aired. Another service of NETCHE, through a grant, is the partial paying of two instructor's salaries. The instructors are Mr

Paul Kruse and Thomas Scherer, who is in charge of reading study skills. NETCHE provides conferences and workshops every year for teaching of new techniaues and methods.

.Art appreciation course revamped An independent study course in art appreciation has been dev~loped for this semester at Peru State College. The course is designed to allow students to work at their own pace. Dr. Leland H. Sherwood, professor of art at PSC, remarked that he had ·fun organizing the new art appreciation class, and added the ideal was suggested to him last fall by Mr Paul Kruse, who is in charge of the instructional developmental program for Nebraska Educational Television Council on Higher Education (NETCHE) here. Art appreciation does not use textbooks. Dr. Sherwood has prepared many types which contain information about kinds of arts and producing. Slides, filmstrips, and films are also provided. The materials for art appreciation are in the College Library Visual Center. ... The course has been organized into five units. The units include characteristics and purpose, tools and techniques of the artist, external influences on art, comparisons, and a collection of 19th and 20th Centurv Art.

From the Editor's desk By RAY KAPPEL

The lonely wind whistles through the decaying limbs of an old oak tree and the adjacent building continues to deteriorate, a I?rocess that was started in 1975. The site is closed to those who wish to1earn. To those who Wish to reflect on what has happened you must seek out the old people who remember. The bitter ones are the only ones who reply. The summary of these talks brings to light earth shaking facts. The first subject the old timers discuss is the old form of politics, democracy. · Democracy meant rule of the majority. In the state democracy th~y had a governing body called legislature. This now extinct word meant a body which makes or enacts laws. In this legislature they had representatives of the people called senators and one had a proposal that started this educational destruction. The then senator Terry Carpenter started several ideas about the institutions merger with UNL in 1974. The idea was bantered around and a few people made a last ditch effort to squeeze the life out of the small colleges in the winter months of '75. Sixty years have passed since the-college's last president, Dr. Pearson asked the students to voice their opinions on the merger question. A small group of students favoring the UNL merger were blinded by the economic advantages of the merger and made their voices heard. The majority chose to remain silent and the college was placed under the UNL system. Once under the "protective arm" of UNL the small state college felt safe and secure. rt was rudely awakened when UNL decided it was in it's best interest to end the collegiate existence of Peru State College and the doors were slammed shut forever t0 an environment where teachers and students knew each other. Editor's note - On behalf of the Pedagogian staff I would like to thank the Student Governing Association for the "What's right with Peru award" for January. The Pedagogian received the _award after the first two issues of this semester.



LB128 proposes to place the community vocational technical colleges under the State College system. This is a good plan. Astatewide system of state community oriented institutions serving a well-defined area need coordination with the 4 existing regionally oriented State Colleges offering broader programs will eliminate duplication of programs which will save money. Nebraskans are paying hard earned tax dollars to finance higher education in this state. The responsibility to get the most mileage out of these funds falls on the Governor, State legislature and all of the State Schools' Administrations. Duplication of programs in regional areas as seen in the Peru, Fairbury, and Milford region in reference to liberal arts courses can hardly be considered good management. By developing a regional plan organized around the 4 existing State Colleges and incorporating the ,tech schools as extension campuses of these schools we can save a lot of those already thinly stretched out tax dollars for education.

The Column Frank D' Addesa . 2-fers didn't bring me down to the grand opening of the Front Page on January 23. All I had was a can of Royal Crown cola to drink and there are witnesses tot~t. While the people at our table discussed diets, how good the beer was, students pursuing perfection in the academic world and a conflict going on at the campus of a thousand oaks I sat and wondered why old J. L. Schmidt was now punching a cash register instead of _a typewriter. · · As I watched him running around taking orders as if every one was a deadline I couldn't help thinking he knew something I didn't. All this wondering made me hungry so I asked John if he had any pizza. When he ·led me to a freezer full of pizzas I thought he was going to ask me to pick one out and make it myself. I wouldn't have minded doing it either after the reassuring advice he gave me to "stay in the newspaper business." I enjoyed the pizza even more after that and Schmidt told me even more good-news when he said that he's thinking of making his own pizza in the future (no more frozen pizzas, now watch the college enrollment go up). We had to leave to go watch Grandma and Grandpa leave home on the Waltons but thought to myself that the place had a lot of potential to be become The Real Home ofthePeru State Ped Heads.

Students Surveyed A random survey of Peru State students and faculty members' attitudes seems fo indicate opposition toward President Gerald Ford's proposal to raise gasoline. prices. President Ford· recently proposed a recommendatJon which would raise the price of gasoline at the pump by 7 cents to 10 cents per gallon. Comments on a gasoline price hike. follow: Mike Davis sophomore commuter, Julian: "I'm not looking forward to it and have started looking into the possibilities of buying an economy car." Tom Ramage, senior commuter Nebraska City: "I hope it warms up soon, so I can ride my cycle." Joyce Jones, Auburn commuter, 2day student, "I'd rather see a price hike than rationing. Rationing creates hardships on everybody." Jan Echert, freshman dorm resident, "It's not a very good decision. I don't think they should raise the prices, it would be better to ration." Ann Tackett, junior dorm resident, "I don't like it. It's not fair to the middle man who still has to use it. It hurts the little guy." Mr Terry Pardeck, instructor social work: "It will have a definite effect on students continuing their education. The President should try to make some type of compensation. I agree with George Meany who said, "this is the weirdest economic proposal I've ever heard of. . ." Joe Munn, Peru student resident, "I think it'll be a race to see if we run out of gas or money first." . David Alvis, junior Peru resident, "It's not an equitable plan- it's merely a hindrance to the middle and lower income groups. We've been sold down the river." Ron Hansen, sophomore commuter, Nebraska City, "I feel gas should be rationed instead of raising the price. The wealthy can keep going while it hurts the middle and lower income people. It's difficult already to go back and forth - it adds great expense to school." · Jim Meredith, sophomore commuter, Nebraska City: "I'm in a car pool, so only drive about three times a month, So the hike wouldn't affect me much." Dr Thomas Scherer, Division Chairman of Education and

Psychology, "I'm against it, Personally I feel it's not necessary, judging from the oil corporations' profit statements. We apparently already have an oversupply due to stockpiling."

Letter to the Editor I think a lack of research on the part of the Ped staff concerning Connie Gregg's ineligibility to student teach this semester has biased many students into believing a story that isn't totally factual. In the January 27th issue it was stated "As a result of a decision by the TEC as part of Peru· College's disciplinary restrictions, Ms. Gregg will not student teach this spring as previously planned." First, the Student Affairs Committee was the one to give "sentencing" and the only committee that could reduce that sentence is Coliege Affairs (which voted to uphold the Student Affairs decision), not Teacher Education. Also did anyone bother to ask the head of the teacher ed committee why Connie wasn't interviewed? Well, il certainly wasn't because they refused as was stated, it was that they wanted to spare her the embarrassment of telling a story that would have no other outcome but her embarrassment. They voted to uphold the policy of not allowing a student to student teach while on probation, one which is needed if we are to maintain the high academic record that Peru State has achieved. The issue was not Connie's individual case but that of whether to keep the policy or drop it completely. Why have a policy if it is not enforced? It is true that judicial review is part of "America's personalized legal system." That is why her case was brought up and she was personally interviewed by Student Affairs. I feel someone owes the Teacher Education Committee an apology for subjecting them to attack for something over which they really didn't have as much say about as the Ped made it sound. Scott McKercher Letter to the Editor,

The editor's article about Highway 67 in the last issue of the Ped was excellent. Congratulations, Ray for telling it like it is. Phil Dean

The winter production of the Peru Community Theater - The Music Man - is moving rapidly toward its Februarl'. performance dates. The cast works with energy, the director, Mrs Douglas Pearson, is tireless, the choreographers are channeling the cast spirit into lively dances - in short, all aspects of the show are taking definite form. Mrs Pearson says that the cast members are enjoying this production tremendously. That, she added, is one of the most important things about a community theater. Cast members include Dr. Ed Camealy as the roguish Harold Hill, Mrs Loretta Kruse as the pianist-librarian who wins him, and Mrs Mary Ruth Wilson as Mrs . Paroo. M~ny Peruvians are to display their talents in the show, and not only

in the area of acting; several choreographers are . being employed to help the cast to dance, among them Mrs Melinda Edris and Mrs Jean ..Blair. Paul Kruse is in charge of the sets and has several people working under him. · Asked for the. high points of putting on the production and also any problems, Mrs Pearson

said that the people have been wonderfully cooperative and .easy to work with. She added, however, that it is difficult to rehearse on the tight schedule she must maintain. Performance dates are Februar:y; 14 and 16 at 8:00. Tickets are two dollars and may be purchased from any cast member.

Groundhog gets stoned Groundhog Day·, one of the most impressive holidays on our calendar, is upon us again. Everyone knows how the great day is celebrated, but few take the time to think seriously about the illustrious workers who make the occasion so momentous. To Barney K. Groundhog, one of the famed Groundhog Day groundhogs in this area; February 2 is a living. "Not everybody," said Barney, "kin be uh Grawndhawg Day grawndhawg." Barney said that he has a hard time understanding the humans' reactions to his yearly emergence from his hole. Sometimes he is the target of. sticks and rocks. Of the rudeness of his human audience, Barney exclaimed, "Half of em want me ·tuh have a big shadow, and thuh other half want me tuh have no shadow, so no matter whut, I must suffer abuse from those who are disappointed." 'fhe amount of training un:lergone by an official Groundhog Day Groundhog· is astonishing. As Barney explains, "Yuh can't be a good grawndhawg if y'arn't literate." First the aspiring groundhog must take a written test for his Third Class Groundhog license. If he passes the first test the Great Council of Groundhogs convenes and asks hundreds .of difficult

questions on such vital matkrs as sun angle,· time of hole emergence, and so forth. If these questions are answered with verve and wit, the Second Class Groundhog license is awarded. The First Class license is given rarely and comes after twenty years of service in the field. Barney K. Groundhog is one of the few to hold this exalted post, since he has been a groundhog since 1922. When asked how he likes his job, Barney says modestly, "It's a living." But one can see that, to Barney, being a Groundhog Day Groundhog is much more.

I want to extend my personal congratulations• to the Bobkittens for their 57-46 victory over Nebraska Wesleyan, January 25. It was their of the season and. the first for the Peru State basketball teams. The losing streak by the· Peru State teams stood at 23 games, when the Bobkittens'got a game ·under their belts, January 25. Now they can, when the season's over, look back and realize that their playing efforts were not in vain. I was in the game room at Duffy's Inn around 4:45 p.m. January 25, when I heard the news. Kelly Evers and I were having a chat, when Penny Baker, burst into the room, like a child with happy news. ~'We won!!" Penny exclaimed. "You won??" we said, being surprised at her startling announcement. "Yes, the score was 57 to 46!" stated Penny. Then I realized she was referring to tne Bobkittens' game with Nebraska Wesleyan that was played that afternoon. After learning the game details from her teammates, I sat back with a happy feeling inside me. The Bobkittens could not have picked a better day (January 25) to win their first game. January 25th was, coincidentally, my 22nd birthday! Bobkittens, thank you for a nice birthday presen!! !

Bobkittens snap streak with win .over Wesleyan The Peru State Bobkittens finally broke the losing streak of the PSC basketball teams with a 57-46 victory over Nebraska Wesleyan, January 25. This was sandwiched· between defeats by IWCC of· Clarinda, Iowa 82-72 · and Tarkio 86-43. The road game with IWCC, January 21, was, according to Coach Doug McElr-oy, ·"The best game, scoring-wise, this team has played. The scoring was well-balanced." McElroy, in reference to the 82-72 defeat, stated, "We were physically beaten." IWCC's Becky Graham dominated the boards and stuffed in 37 points. Five Bobkittens shot double-figures in the game. Patty Collins and Nancy Sepp scored 16 points each. Allie. Stoltenberg followed up with 13 points while Gail Harmon and Beck Twila chipped in 10 counters each. · The home contest with Tarkio, January 26, was all-Tarkio. The streak-snapping game

Bobcats are down bllt not out in 17th straight loss Ayoung Peru State basketball squad couldn't shake its season long plague-freshmanitis-down the stretch, and the illness, plus a sharp shooting guard from Chadron kept the Bobcats from registering their first win Friday, January 24. The PSC roster lists eight freshmen and two seniors. Player inexperience was obvious during the final 12 minutes in the form of turnovers. Chadron won_ the Nebraska College Conference test, 71-62. Peru turned a 36-34 halftime advantage into a six point edge, 40-34 early in the second half on buckets by Dan Parker and Russ Mort. Brian Wendler, Chadron's sharp shooting guard, exploded during the next. eight minutes, hitting five field goals without a miss from long range. During his spree, he knottedthe score at 44 with a jumper from the right corner, tied the tally again at 46 with a 20 footer, and countered a Mark Hansen bucket with a swisher from the top of the key. Wendler sent the Eagles to a 50-48 lead they never lost with another howitzer from. the right corner at the 10:43 mark.· Peru had trouble from that point on, scoring only 14 additional points. 'Shots that dropped earlier, suddenly dipped in and out. Turnovers squelched other scoring opportunities. Chadron meanwhile, added points with regularity. A fastbreaking basket by Wendler gave the Eagles their largest command of the game - 14 poirlts (66-52) with 3:00 left. Wendler earned game scoring honors with 23 points. Mort, a freshman from Pawnee City, was a bright spot in defeat, · hitting a personal season high of 20.

with Nebraska Wesleyan, January 25, was one of the best all-around games the Bobkittens . has played, according to Coach McElroy. "We played together through the whole game for the first time this season," commented McElroy, "and we pfayed a good clean game." Patty Collins waS' the leading Bobkitten scorer with 19 points. Allie Stoltenberg followed with 16 counters. Under full court pressure in the



first half, Peru State was farcea to commit turnovers. With the hot shooting of Diane Morley and Connie Cook, Tarkio raced to a ·u-10 advantage in the first half. Behind 41-21 at halftime, the Bobkittens could not offset the Tarkio shooting attack to come back. And Tarkio breezed to their fifth victory, 86-43. Allie Stoltenberg pumped in 17 points to lead the Bobkittens' scoring. Patty Collins followed with 10 counters.

London Here Feb. 21 Jack London, a noted expert on psychic phenomena, will appear on stage at the Fine Arts Auditorium, Friday, February 21at8:00 p.m. to present a program dealing with many aspects of the supernatural. In his program, Mr London answers such questions as: Why is Astrology so popular today? How do you separate fact from fantasy in ESP phenomena? Why is such a vast multitude from the intellige11tia involved in the Psychic Scene? A couple of days before arriving in Peru, London will send to PSC director of Student Activities, John Letts, a locked metal box containing the prediction of an event of local, national or international importance. During the program, the box will be opened and the audience will be able to judge the accuracy of the prediction. If you are interested in psychic phenomena, or are just a curious, closed-minded skeptic of the field, London's show should provide a fine evening of entertainment.

Financial Aid Forms Now available for next year. All students wishing to apply for financial assistance for the · 1975-76 academic year must get application forms which are now available in the Financial Aid Office located in the Administration Building. According to Donald Miller, Director of Financial Aids, students wishing to apply for National Direct Student Loans, Supplemental Educational Opportwiity Grants and College Work-Study must submit a family financial statement as well as' an application form. The financial statement requires information from the 1974 Federal Income Tax forms, so as the family is preparing the tax forms it is very easy to ob-

lain the necessary information. All students that begin their post-secondary schooling after · April, 1973 are encouraged to make application for the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant Program. These applications are now available in the Financial Ald Office. There have been some changes on the formula used to determine the eligibility of students for the BEOG, which means that some students that were not eligible in 1974-75may be eligible in 1975-76. Mr Miller went on to add, "I wish to encourage all information be completed and submitted as early as possible. With a target date. of April 15, 1975."

Moderate damage was done to this dorm room at the complex in an unexplained late night fire·.

Enrollment up over last semester Day student enrollment at PSC stands at 685 according to latest figures released by Director of Admissions, Dr Kelly Llewer. This is an increase over last semester of 1.5 per cent, and represents the highest enrollment has been for the past four semesters. Dr Llewer reported that the increase is significant since traditionally at Peru and in. colleges in general, enrollment drops appreciably from fall to spring owing to attrition and the lack · of graduating high school seniors entering college.

Sa IarieS proposed

Breakdown of the statistics also reveals that there are 57 per cent males and 43 ·per cent females registered as day students. Pre8ident Pearson, commented, "We don't know at this time how mucq such factors as the economy and high school seniors delaying entry for a few months has affected registration, but we are happy with the increase and glad to hav_e tl!e new students."

K.ornor Here I am, sitting here at my desk, at 1:30 in the morning, trying to put the diso,rganized thoughts in my head together for this edition. It may sound crazv but Old Man Winter made me stay up this late!! Last week, I had my sports page layout all ready for the stories to come in and take their places. Every story was planned right down to the last inch of the page. Then Old Man Winter came along and gave me the double whammy. The finals of the First Annual Prep Girls' rnvitational Tournament was postponed. Which means I can't get the picture and the story I wanted. So, I filled it in with the write-up of the two first-round games. Then I found out the Bobcats' basketball game and the Bobkittens' basketball game were postponed. Which means I have four inches of copy . for 12 inches of paper space. I almost cracked up doing it, but I stretched it out and filled the gaps the best I could. Fortunately, I found enough fillers. to fill the page up. Around of applaus goes to WAA (Women's Athlete Association) for setting the Prep Cage Tourney up. This tournament will -grow in size and become a prestigeous event. It will act as an incentive for the area high schools to field teams so they can participate. It will, I hope, upgrade the quality of our Bobkitten basketball team!!.

Matmen drop 2 to flu It was a night of many decisions as the Peru State wrestlers won a tough dual with Kearney State, Jan. 31. All matches were decisions, with Peru State claiming seven of the ten matches. Lonnie Quinn, John Whisler and ' James McKean were the Bobcat grapplers defeated in their weight classes. The meet was still in the balance (Peru 19, Kearney 10) when Kent Coleman decisioned Al Halstadt, 5·2. This decision wrapped up the meet win for the Bobcats. Things were different when the Bobcats went to a tri-dual with Northwest Missouri State and Fort Hayes State, Feb. 4.

Five Bobcat grapplers got the flu bug, and two of them felt well enough to go on the trip. John Whisler, Lo_nnie Quinn, and Mark Yori were the sick 'Cats left at home. FFred Marisett and James McKean were able to wrestle one match each befQre the flu effects took over. The decimated Bl>bcats lost to Northwest Missouri 24-21 and Fort Hays State 33-20.

gym in Phase 11 Plans for PSC's new Physcial Education-Health Center building are now in phase II according to Dr. Michael Stewart, Vice President of Administration. Phase I was completed last June, a program giving estimates of footage needed and approximate cost of the structw·e. Phase II is a request to the Nebraska Legislature for $230, 000 to be used for the selection of a suitable site and specified architectural drawings which contractors could bid and build from. Should the legislature appropriate the funds for phase II, the actual letting of bids for construction would begin phase III. The bids would then be turned over to the legislature to appropriate additional money_,.

for the actual construction. The total project last June was estimated at $3,830,820. Dr. Stewart believes if . the funds are appropriated for phase II, the money for phase III would also be given. HowevP.r. he Is not )Verly optimistic the funds will be appropriated because of the existing econo1nic situation. "The building of any new construction in the state will be pretty tough sledding," he pointed out. "On the other hand if you don't ask for anything you won't get anything." The proposed building is first on the Board of Trustees' list for the four state colleges in the area of new construction. The new construction list however, trails plans for deferred maintenance and minor remodeling or r-enovation of existing buildings in priority.

College bill in Lincoln Three legislative bills affecting Peru and the other State r.ollegP.s will ~oon hP ~ired in Lincoln. LB 128, the much discussed merger plan, 1s scheduled for hearing February 17 (today).

Minister brings reoolutinn to PSC "The Humanistic Revolution," a film series presented by The l\/<>hr~~k~ As<ociatio!l for MPnt~ I Health, Inc., and its regions and ch;1pt ers. ended last week. Lampu.>



the films. About 25 people, met on Thursdays from January 9 through February 6 in room 212 of the Fine Arts building. There was no cost to students but $2.00 a session was charged to off campus people. Rev. Robert Cordes said that the series of films was designed to sharpen listening skill and dPvelop listPning <:ty !Ps in ordPr 10 detect peooles' problems. Techniques were presented by such people as Dr. Carl Rogers, of La Jolla, California, who has a large following of students. He dealt with listening and reflecting what a person has said. Dr. Albert Ellis, a private psychologist and writer, dealt with reality therapy, a therapy that dea Is with a person's f(l('us on his own reality which becomes distorted and the straightening of this crooked thinking. Rev. Cordes said that there was good response to the films and that people have gotten into good discussions. Joe Munn, a student at PSC,

said that he thought the films were a "brainwash". He disagreed with Abraham Maslow on his teachings on self-actualization. Joe said that the film was .saying to be self actualized, together, that a person must be a part of society and the system. He believes to be self-actualized a person wouldn't be a part of the system. Joe said, "Maslow's theory was that there is a series of levels of consciousnesdrom mentally ill to self-actualized. The majority of the people are in the middle. People who are productive members of society are probably approaching selfactualization, the top of the scale. People who cannot or do not align themselves with society, because of its injustices, but who try and find themselves are placed on the lower rungs of Maslow's ladder. "The film's pur_pose was to show complete mental health and becoming a productive part of society go hand in hand and that to be self actualized, one becomes a productive part of society and the establishment and at the same time has inner

peace. I believe this line of reasoning represents a brainwash because it forces people to align themselves with a system that is based on what is good for big business is good for the world; The ultimate objective being to keep the people firmly under the thumb of corrupt government. I believe it is a part of a conspiracy to continue the trend of the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer, the product of a mentality which is unmindful of the destruction of America." Jane Jones, a Peru commuter, said that she thought the films were very worthwhile. She said that she didn't agree with everything but they made you start thinking. She said that the films presented different ideas on how people react and how to get along and understand. Jane said that after the films there was a panel discussion with various instructors and Rev. Cordes. Rev. Cordes said there was such a good response to the films that he thought it would be done next year.

LB 344 proposes to create six locally-governed technical com' unity college areas in Nebraska. The bill states: "The institutions within these areas would be separate from both elementary and secondary systems and the other institutions of higher learning. They are not to be converted to four year colleges or to baccalaureate degree giving institutions." A seven member State Technical Community College Council, headed by a full time director, would rule the schools. Nemaha and Otoe counties would be included in the Southeast Technical Community College Area. LB 388 suggests the creation of a revolving bond fund. This issue would appear on the primary ballot in the May 1976 election in this· form: "Constitutional amendment to provide for the issuance of bonds to establish a revolving fund to purchase existing revenue bonds and to pledge certain revenues from cigarette and other taxes for the payment of the same. FOR AGAINST" Under this amendment the three state boards "may issue revenue bonds to construct, purchase or otherwise acquire, extend, add to, remodel, repair, furnish and equip dormitories, residence halls, single and multiple dwelling units or other facilities for the housing and

boarding of students, single or married, and faculty or other employees ... " Financial Troubles The Board of Trustees of the Nebraska State Colleges have outstanding approximately $22,000,000 of Student Fees and Facilities Revenue Bonds and the Board of Regents has outstanding approximately $21,000,000.

Some institutions are having difficulty meeting financial obligations to the boards, involving these bonds. The purpose of LB 388 is to authorize the Legislature to purchase existing bonds at a discount through a state agency. Then <iny particular institution was having difficulty in making its annual payments, the state agency could defer the payments. Peru's Share Peru State College is ailotted $468,233 for capital construction

projects in the final list of priorities approved by the State Board of Trustees. The money feeds into four categories. Miscellaneous renovation and repairs, $50,000; Deferred maintenance projects, $181,233; Health and PE Center Phase II (all steps up to actual construction) $230,000; and Phase I Planning for the System including remodeling education building, $4,000; and centralized cooling system, $3,000. The financial priorities list is now subject to action by the legislature.

Dr. Ed Johnson, Director of Special Education for Educational Service Unit <ESUl No. 4, spoke Monday, February 3 at the Kappa Delta Pi meeting. ESU No. 4 covers Richardson, Pawnee, Nemaha, Johnson, and Otoe counties of Nebraska. Dr. Johnson commented, too often people think special education refers only to the mentally retarded child. However, it involves not only the retarded but the gifted child and the child who may have a hearing, speech, physical, or emotional disabiltiy. This involves about one-third of the children in school.

R~v. Robert Cordes explains The Moslow theory of self-actualization which is the guiding philosophy behind 'The Humoristic Revolution.' /

Dr. Johnson stated that Special · Education has three main areas. The first being speech pathology, which involves ""'-' -- chi~ ..,_\\'_ith sper

diagnostic services. This involves everyone who has a learning problem:A diagnostician and a psychiatrist will be brought in to help analyze youngsters' problems. The third is to provide educational opportunities for the· mentally retarded. There is a new concept in special education. It has evolved from LB 403 which states that every child between 5 and 16 has to be given an education. According to Dr. William Landis, Dr. Johnson talked mainly on "mainstreaming". "Mainstreaming" is the present philosophy of putting the mentally retarded back into regular classrooms. Continuance is used to get the child into problem areas a step at a time and not be separated. This usually starts with going to ~"""'~~ wit!- his class and

SCB president comments

By Ray Kappel dragging his cup across the If you've ever had the

culturally stimulating experience of living in a residence hall you have becom'e acquainted with the elite of the dorm. "The elite" refers to the people who live over your room. These_ people are called elite because they hold dominion over all. This dominion usually takes the shape of self-expression. Self-expression means producing a sound that is pleasing to your ears and at the same time not giving any consideration to those who live below you. Why should you? Your elite. U you decide that bouncing a basketball at 2 a.m. is the thing to do; do it because you are · elite and you have the right. Perhaps your fancy is throwing horseshoes. I'm sure your dormmates below would enjoy something they could snap their fingers to. Some experiences I've encountered in the dorm are not unusual but stand out in my mind because of their musical quality. The first year I was here the people above me let their trained seal get the feel of the floor after spending three years in a tub. In another instance I was awakened by a trained baboon



bars of his cage. The topper was the 3-day southeast Nebraska shouting contest held above me. · By now some of you may feel that you have not been making enough noise. There are some things you can do to assert your elite standing. - Go to the Henry Dooley Zoo in Omaha and borrow a prune-ea ting Yak for three weeks. -Following the example of a dogfood commercial, starve your pet dog for three years and have him come in and eat your roommate. - Try cooking the Resident Assistant's goose. It's surprising h<>w loud a doomed goose can scream. There are those who wish to cut down on the noise. Believe it or not I've come up with six rules for cutting down on the noise. 1. Own a club. 2. Move off campus. 3. Own a club. 4. Own a club. 5. Raise a Doberman Pincher 6. Own a club. Note: If the club is big enough, you-..may disregard rules 2 and 5.

Letter to the Editor:

I am writing this letter in response to a paragraph that appeared on page two, fourth column of the February 10 issue of the Pedagogian. This article stated, "Jack London depresses me. If learning to read minds and predict the future leads him to sell books for a living and engage in such doubtfully productive pastimes as shooting the bull with Merv Griffith, et. al., then what does he want to be a psychic for?" From this article, and its "clear as mud" context, I can understand why it appeared unsigned. Ap· parently this person thinks that the Jack London who Will be on our campus Friday, Feb. 21 is the noted author of Call of the Wild and other noted classic books. If my memory serv~ me correctly, this author lived during the 1800'sj and it would appear highly l!Illikely that they are one in the ' same. It is not this anonymous author's ignorance that disturbs me. What does disturb me is apparent dissatisfaction of the appearance of an expert on psychic phenonmena as· part of our

entertainment program here at PSC. Before the contracts for this show were si!med. I conducted an in- dependent poll, to see if our student body would be interested m tn1s rype ot performance. Since I remember talking to no one who expressed disinterest in this type of show, I went ahead with the booking. I would hope that Jack London will bring a different type of entertainment to our college community, and in so doing, it will help to round out our entertainment program for the 1974·75 school year. Can you remember the last time we had anationally famous entertainer on campus here at PSC; expecially one who has appeared with Johnny Carson and Merv Griffin? Incidently, who is "Merv Griffith"? If you do or do not believe in the psychic or if you would like to learn more on this subject, I would like to see every one there. I am sure it will be an entertaining and very rewarding night. Respectifully yours, JEFF K. TURNER SCB President

New Vet loans "The Veterans Administration in Nebraska is now processing applications for new education loans for veterans attending school under the GI Bill. The 'loans, up to a maximum of $600 m one academic year, were established by the Vietnam.era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974. Don V. Campbell, Director, VA . Regional Office, Lincoln, said that all eligible veterans, wives, widows and children will be considered for initial loans based upon the full amount of their tuition and all other costs of attendance anticipated for the entire 1974-75 academic year. He said that under the new law, those granted loans will be required to execute promissory notes agreeing to repayment of principal plus 8per cent interest.

Repayment of principal and interest will be deferred while the student is attending classes on at least a half-time basis. Installment payments must start nine months after the student ceases at least half-time enrollment, with full payment within 10 years and nine months after that date. Part or all of the loan may be prepaid without penalty. Interest will not accrue on the loan balance until the required beginning date of repayment. The VA official said that a 3 , per cent loan fee will be deducted from the approved loan amount to provide a fund to insure against defaults under the loan nrogram. Defaults will be considered overpayments and recoverea m me same manner as other debts due the government.

PSSS investigates museum By ANNE TACKETT On Jantiary 30, members of the Peru State Social Science Society (PSSSSJ and the Nebrw ka History class took an afternoon field trip to Lincoln. Dr. Schottenhamel and Mr Pardeck accompanied them. Upon arriving on the UNL campus we made our way to the Nebraska State Historical Museum and were greeted by Mr Wendell Frantz, Curator of

plays for the showcases. The colors and positions of the articles are varied so that variety instead of monotony exists in the display areas.

Food service friend By EMILY ROSEWELL For twenty-five years, Edna Warnke has been a friend to the students, faculty, and staff of Peru State College in her work at the Broughton Food Service. For eighteen of those twenty-five years Edna managed the food service; she has been cashier in recent years. She makes a point of learning students' names and chatting with them when they come into the cafeteria. That, she believes, is a key to discipline: she likes the students. The students like Edna, too; even though they are admitted into the cafeteria by their numbers, they find it impossible to be anonymous members of the crowd when Edna takes a personal interest in them.

Auburn gals win delayed tourney The Auburn high school gals didn't let the snow-induced tournament postponement bother them as they · played Plattsmouth in the finals of the 1st Annual Girls High Sch90l Invitational Basketball Tournament, Feb. 6. Their domination of the offensive boards and pressing defense. earned them a 38-26 victory and the championship. The consolation game saw a 30 point performance by Falls City's Marta Prichard that boosted the Tigers past the Weeping Water Indians, 44-31. Falling behind 6-2 at the game outset, Falls City overtook the· Indians with the aid of free throws. Weeping Water committed nine fouls in the first· quarter, enabling the Tigers to ta~e a 9-8 lead at the quarter break. The second quarter action saw both teams trade basket-forbasket until the final.couple of minutes. Weeping Water fouls gave the Tigers charity shot opportunities and Falls City led at halftime 1H5. In third quarter, Weeping Water's offense, being plugged up by the Tiger defense, scored only five points. Meanwhile, Falls City's offense went rolling along with the aid of Marta Prichard's hot shooting. When

the third quarter ended, Falls City was sitting on a 30-20.Jead. The fourth stanza saw even play by both teams until the final couple of minutes. A scoring spree by Falls City stretched a ten point lead to a 16 point bulge, 42-26. Weeping Water staged a last minute rally that was not enough and Falls City won the consolation game, 44-31. In the first quarter of the championship finals, Auburn came from a 6-4 deficit to a 11-6 lead at the quarter break on the strength of free throws and Plattsmouth turnovers. The Auburn defense stiffened up early in the second quarter, enabling the Bulldogettes to fashion a 15-8 lead .. However, the Blue Devils took advantage of Auburn turnovers and reduced the deficit down to three, 18-15, at intermission. In the third quarter, Auburn continued their pressing defense, while opening up their. offense. And they stretched their slim three point margin to a seven point lead, 28-21, at the end of the third quarter. The final stanza saw Auburn begin to pull away in spite of a 21-2 zone defense by Plattsmouth. Both teams played evenly during the last half of the stanza and Auburn clinched the championship, 38-26.

At one point during the 19 game losing streak by the Bobcats, Coach Schnaser told his plavers. "Don't give up now .someday we wi.ll put it all together." They did put it all together, a& they survived a late J .F.K. rally to chalk up their first victory of the season, 78-70, Feb. 7. After breaking a 2-2 deadlock to go ahead, Peru State hit a scoring splurge and ran up a ten pointlead, 14-4, in five minutes. This was done with good rebounding on both boards and hot outside shooting by Bob Craig and Dan Parker. This lead stretched to a 17 point advantage, 29-12, before J.F.K. initiated a rally. They came back to within nine, 39-30, just before intermission. It was the third game this . season that the Bobcats were leading at halftime. The second half action was a carbon copy of the first half. At the outset, the Bobcats took off on an eight-point scoring spree before the Pa trio ts could stuff in their first two-pointer. When RiCk Bellemy, J.F.K. forward, fouled out with 17: 46 left, his teammates were looking at a 15 point Bobcat lead, 47-32. It was 56-42 when John Herbst drew his fifth foul with 14: 41 left. He was followed, one minute later, by Bob Craig. As Herbst and Craig left the maple court, so did much of the Bobcats' rebounding strength. The 'Cats maintained their fat lead until 6:23 left to play. That

was when Dan Parker was whistled for his fifth foul. This left Peru State with no height advantage, an all-freshman team and a 70-56 lead to protect. The J.F.K. Patriots started chipping away at the lead with ]av11n< anrl <Pt11n ohnf< Wh<>n Scott Hoegh fouled out with 3:36 left, the 14 point lead had shrunk to eleven, 72-61. From that point on, things got hectic as J.F.K. used fast court breaks and full court pressure on the Bobcats. With 2: 00 left, the 'Cats were hanging onto a eight point margin, 76-68. An important jump by Jeff Scanlan and free throws by Paul Musquiz and Joe Fleskoski kept the Patriots from getting within the final eight point margin. · After quieting down his jubilant players in the Bobcat locker room, Coach Schnaser quietly told them, "I'm sure we shot over 40% tonight to win this game. You did a great job on the rebounding and it was a good all-out team effort. I told you a long time ago that someday we would put it all together!" Dan Parker later commented, "It was the hes! a!1-:iro1mrl team effort of the season .., Dan Parker and Bob Craig shared the Bobcat scoring lead with 16 points each. Joe Fleskoski followed up with 14 points. Dan Parker also led the Bobcats with 14 rebounds. John Herbst followed with 10 grabs. The Bobcats shot 30 out of 68 (44.1%J and potted 14 out of 31 charity shots.

Despite shooting a poor 24.5 ·per cent from the floor, the Bobkittens took a 22-17 lead by halftime and continued to outscore the visitors in the second half. During the early stage ot the second half action, Gail Harmon was trying to intercept a pass when she collided with a IWCC player. Falling to the floor, she banged her knee on the hard maples. According to Coach Doug McElroy, the knee injury was not too serious. He said that her knee was stiff on Monday (10th) but it should be ok. Patty Collins led teammates with eight baskets and four tosses from the line for 20 points with Tami Coleman following with 12 counters. Collins also led in rebounding with 15 while Nancy Sepp helped out with eight grabs. . yer mindful of our energy crisis, please find and-0r form car pools to save gas if you decide to go.

August commencement cancelled


Peru State College will ·not have a graduation ceremony for August graduates, according to Dr. Clyde Barrett, vice president of Academic affairs.

Barry Reed, a graduate of Peru S~ate College in 1974, was last week's Peruvian of the week. Barry, who graduated with a B.S. in Physical Education, has been selected as fullback for 1975 by the Chicago Bears. Barry, a native of Henry, Illinois, started at Peru State in 1970. He was on the football team all four years. While at Peru, he was voted outstanding player by the Nebraska College Coµference in both 1972 and 1973. In 1974, Barry was chosen in the tenth round of the Professignal Football Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. He was cut, however, but will be on his way to Chicago on July 8, 1975, which he added, "It's also my birthday. It's the nicest birthday present I've ever received." Barry attributed much of his skill "to Peru, as playing on a small college team gave me lots of experience."

USCC attacks

By Ray Kappel

In this season of disease people are afraid of catching something. This is only because . they don't realize the benifts a disease can have. fhave strep throat and I'm enjoying it! Although strep throat has obvious physical detriments, it has mental benefits. Your brain power is, increased because · strep throat limits all other. actions except thinking. You can sit for hours comtemplating things. Like gourmet food, choclate spider eggs, epitaph's (mine is - Here · lies Joe Journalist). Even an ·old worn out wombat mating nest crosses your mind. You never know how weird you are until you have strep throat. Of course there is a pitfall the infected person must avoid. This is the vicious trap of Pity. You may enjoy the pity you

receive but there is a danger from the people who bestow it upon you. These people are generally well meaning but CaQ get under your skin jf you don't watch it. The strep · throat mourners are divided into two groups. Group one is called "Hi! how are you today?" These people have a special mission in life. They have been appointed to pick out the sick people in a crowd and say "Hi! how are you today." The best way to answer "Hi! how are you today?" is to cough· twice and scream "Unclean." The lepers used this effectively in the movie Ben Hur. Group two is called "I'm superwit and I'm going to cheer you up!'' Before you can moan and objection they start plasteriqg your mind with wittic-

isms. Take for instance the conversation I had with Henny Youngman's nephew. "Say Ray, did you know that Thomas Edison was· the in:ventor of the phonograph and the indecent lamp?" This is followed by a slap on the back. "Say Ray, did you know that a millennium is an insect with more legs than a centennial?" Another slap on the back. knocks me to the ground; but he doesn't notice. "Say Ray. . . ." The only defense is to run for life. By now there are some of you who are jealous of my strep throat which has given me a deeper insight to the facts of life. I can take care of that. Out of the goodness of my heart I have set up strep throat thereapy sessions. You may contact me in Delzell Hall during the morning house of the school week.

income transfer A government policy of taxing one group of workers to help provide benefits for another group of individuals, in the language of the economists, is known as an income redistribution or income transfer policy. In a society of more than 200 million people such policies reflect our concern for the well-being of all our citizens. The Social Security system, of course, is a prime example. Today, we have 95 million workers providing benefits for 30 million retirees. Currently, the skyrocketing costs of the income-transfer programs are driving U.S. budget makers up a wall, trying to hold the fiscal 1975 dificit to under $10 billion. Until recently the rising costs- of government payments to individuals, which is really what we are talking about, were offset partially by reduced government spending in other categories. Defense spending, for example, has declined in real .dollar outlays in recent years. Iii these inflationary times, the tradeoff is no longer true. 'l'ransfer programs keep gro\ving. ·By the year 2000, according to budget experts, which such programs growing at an annual rate of 9 per cent compounded, Federal, state and local governments will be collecting and redistributing two-thirds of our Gross National Product. "The real big issue we face is what ·kind of society will we have if two, thirds of the economy comes through the government?" says Roy M. Ash, retiring director of the Office of the Management ;:cd Budget. The Chamber of Commerce of the United States, in a message to its members, has encouraged Congress to note the storm signals ahead. Its legislative bulletin, Congressional Action, commented: "The American people have demonstrated they support welfare and some income redistributed by government to help the needy. If we reject proposals to curb .excessive acceleration of ~uch programs, we are in deep trouble, indeed." It is your tax money. Why not remind your Congressman of that fact?

Winning selections will appear in the Sifting Sands which will be out May 1. English Club and Sigma Tau Delta spansored the contest. This was the third Silas Summers writing contest. Eleven students submitted entriesforpoetry,eightforshort stories, and five entries for miscellaneous.

With individual contributions - as the base, CARE obtained cost and services inputs by the governments of peoples being helped, U.S. government donations of farm commodities and special project funds fro~ both U.S. and Canadian governments. "All this, combined with frugal management by CARE, stretched every dollar provided by the public to nearly $6 worth of aid supplied to the less fortunate - a total of $109,064,414 in goods and services," Executive Director Goffio explained. "Central to helping people help themselves is that participiJHng countries and individual beneficiaries invest whatever funds, materials, services they can in CARE programs. Over 130 such peopleto-people partnerships were in force in nations around the world last year." Among l>ighlights of CARE's work during the year: More than 20 million people, nearly all children, recived daily anti-malnutution feedings, which not only save lives but enable youngsters to grow into healthy, productive adults. Emergency food, along with medical and other relief aid, went to seven million victims of droughts, floods and other disasters, including such parched African countries as Niger and Chad and, paradoxically, flood-stricken areas in Pakistan and the Philippines.

Athletic funds spent sports cancelled as .en idy 1-14

The spring sports program at Peru State College has been cancelled for this year .. Baseball coach Tom Fitzgerald made that announcement to his team late Wednesday, Feb. 26: Early Thursday, Fitzgerald stated that the door was not completely closed on the matter. "The letterman want to raise the money", Fitzgerald added ''we are thinking of student contribution as a way to raise the money.'' Coach Fitzgerald cited last' year's money projection as the chief fault. "The amount of money we projected for this project didn't happen, we were short." The coach also said there was some overspending by the athletic department, but he said this was due "to the time lag between something that is expended and the time we are notified by the business office." PSC President Douglas Pearson gave reason's for the spring sports cancelation, "At the beginning of the year we guess at the amount of money we will get from gate receipets, etc. We then allocate money to various divisions of the college. If we don't make that amount we're in trouble." President Pearson stated there was overspending by the athletic department but added "the billing times between the sporting goods companies and this college overlaped the fiscal year which caused accounts to be charged with items that were purchased last year into this year's budget. · President Pearson added that if the athletic department can raise the money, the spring sports program would be reinstated. He felt that this would be the last year for the problem. A new accounting system is being used to correct the problem. The president added "we're going to bite the bolt this spring so we can start fresh July 1, with the new fiscal year and get everything straight."

Front Page poses new test John Schmidt, owner of "The Front Page" in Peru has found the change from newspaper editor to restaurant and bar owner a delightful experience. Schmidt used the word "terrific" to describe how .business is going, adding that his early success has been beyond all expectations. He said he has definite ideas as to what a tavern should consist of and has done extensive remodeling to produce those ideas. The sawing and straightening of the bar, plus rearr angem en t of the seating facilities gives the popular place a completely different look than when it was known ·as. "Rex's".

Although he admits that he is not yet an expert in the restaurant business, he says, "I have learned more in the last four weeks than I did in four years of college." .Some of the special events happening at Schmidt's establishment include live entertainment by a local ·i)Olka band - The Cooking Kolaches on Sunday afternoons; the popular return of two-fers about twice a week and dollar night.

PSC .winsrepeatNCC title The Peru State wrestlers proved themselves worthy of a repeat NCC crown as the Bobcats headed off a Chadron challenge to clinch the championship. The final tally was: Peru State 124, Chadron 106%, Wayne 79 and Kearney 76. There were three champions and two consolation champions for Peru State. Bud Frohling, John Whisler and Fred Marisett were the champs of their weight classes. Lonnie Quinn and Dennis Johnk, after being decisioned in the 1st round, came back to take the consolation honors.

Money is raised for spring sports On February 26 the announcement was made that the PSC spring sports program was cancelled due to money problems, unless outside funds could be obtained. Since then a drive to reverse the action has been put in action by the athletic department. Peru State athletic director, Dr. Tom Fitzgerald, said the needed money was raised through bake sales, collection and contributions which netted over $1,500. Fitzgerald said the Letterman's Club has sold tickets for a boxing smoker that have netted $500 so far. This money, according to

Fitzgerald, has enabled the spring sports program to continue operations. Club has sold tickets for a bOxing smoker that have netted $500 so far.

From the Editor RAY KAPPEL

In the ten short days of spring break I have become the richest man on earth. I have evolved from a penniless editor to a multi-millionaire world figure. Obviously, my lifestyle has been transformed. For thrills I used to pitch hot pennies to organ grinder's monkeys. Now, I can achieve this same ecstasy by driving my Rolls Royce down highway 67. How have I achieved my rightful place in history? I'm glad you asked. It's simple. I followed a plan laid out by a national figure. Like this national figure, who I will refer to as Wally Watergate, I committed an outlandish crime, went to jail for · 13 minutEIB, and then went on a lecture four to the open arms of the college population. They hungered for the real story of what happened behind the scenes. I think~ my readers should have the benefit of my experience in case they decide they could use an extra million lying around. First, I divided the plan into parts just as Wal~y · had done. Step 1: 'Phe crime, Step 2, The jail sentence, and Step 3, The lecture tour. I will now touch on all three so you may prepare yourself with your plan. The Crime. Think big. It's got to be outlandish. Wally Watergate used the old trick of betraying the trust of Americans. It w~rked for him,~

work for you. My crime wa,g called "The Great Daylight Savings Time Hoax." I called prominent news media personnel (Cronkite was glad to hear from me again) and told them wiQter was an hour longer than summer. Everybody set their clocks ahead an hour. The CIA soon found me out and had me sentenced to "Luxurious Prison.'; The prison only a mother could love. I, like dear old Wally, chose to serve 13 minutes for my high crime. The Jail Term. "Luxurious Prison" is set in the horrid surroundings of the French Riveria. Inside your "cell" will be harsh torture. You are provided with only seven sbowers, one for every day of the week, and a Rolls Royce to drive highway 67 when you get out. Indoor harems are optional. Outside is the French Riveria with all of its prison like features. For your personal use you are given a tennis court., swimming pool, and a Rolls Royce to drive down highway 67. Outdoor harems are op~ tional. When you have served 13 minutes for your crime you are deemed fit for society. The Lecture Tour. This is the easy part. Implication is . the key. Implicate everybody from your Uncle Harry to your Aunt Harry. Wally Watergate did it, tdid it, now it's your turn.

it worked for me, and it can




essential than ever that consuiners obtain full satisfaction for every dollar spent. Unfortunately, many misguided efforts to "protect" consumers do more harm than good. Such is the case with "The Consumer Protection Agency Act of 1975," which is similar to legislation defeated in Congress over the last five years. However, this year's bill (S. 200) stands a good chance of passage because the 94th Congress is expected to be receptive to activist-backed causes.

"Now, after hundreds of millions of dollars went down a rathole, the Congress has decided that seat-belt interlocks were not such a good thing after all. Presumbly, not worth it to customers. The decision on the so-ea.lied "airbags," which may cost about 10 times as much, will be coming up soon. "What position should the CPA (Consumer Protection Agency) administrator, as the allpurpose consumer advocate, take? No one seems to know." Obviously, any such decision should be left to customers in the marketplace, not another Washington bureaucrat. The title of the bill itself 1s misleading. Many members of Congress, who habitually vote for a bill because it has an appealing title, may not even read the actual provisions of the bill. The public is even less knowledgeable about such matters. This particular bill simply creates another expensive new bureaucracy to represent the consumer interest before federal regulatory agencies; yet it woulo be as far distant and aloof

_Beaver Junction - pop. 4 By Liz Deason If you see a sign with the

words "Beaver Junction" printed on it, stop and read it. You may be surprised to find that it is not a road sign announcing a town, but a sign advertising a new group. The group consists of four talented musicians who attend Peru State College. -Three of them are enrolled in music education: Dennis Ehmke, senior and Mark Thompson, sophomore; vocals and guitars. PSC senior Maynard Geschke is a vocalist for the group. Perry Biaggi, in business administration, plays the drums. Beaver Junction began its career New Year's Eve,

December 1974, by performing at the Vet's Club in Syracuse. Wheeler's Inn, The Front Page, and· Pawnee City High School are among other places where the group has performed. The group does music of all types from the Beatles to Elton John to John Denver. Some members of the group are even composers in their own right; Mark Thompson, wrote the group's theme song. The group will be performing at Wheeler's Inn in the near future. So the next time you see a sign that says "Beaver Junction," don't pass it by. Stop, look, and read it, thengo and hear this great new group.

Frohling's championship drive leads Peru State to 15th place in Nationa.l Tournament

TAKEDOWN! It's two for Frohling as the referee signals .to the scorer a takedown :credit. Bill Schmidt of Augsburg College is Frohling's opponent in the 150 lb. final.


Bud Frohling proved himself to be the best NAIA 150 lb. wrestler in the nation as he led Peru State to a 15th place finish in the 18th Annual . National Wrestling Championship, March 5-8, at Sioux City, Iowa. Frohling was declared champion after he pinned Bill Schmidt of Augsburg in the 150 lb. class final. Over 100 colleges participated in the tournament that opened Wednesday morning for registration of wrestlers. Coach Marty Dwine registered seven Bobcat hopefuls. They were Gary Leosing, Rick Norval, Bud Frohling, John Whisler, Bob Brown, Kent Coleman and Fred Marisett. Most of Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning were spent in committee meetings and coaches' meetings. Tournament rules were set up and

STAYING ON TOP. .Even though Frohling appears to be tied up at the moment, he maintains control of Schmidt in this situation. Frohling had a competitive edge on his opponent during the first two periods of the match.

at Peru State."


Pittsburgh) 6-0 in the 1st round, Frohling pinned Bob Bennett (Wartburg) in 4:57 during second round action. Third round action saw Frohling hand Joe Schambow (Lacrosse) a 10-7 decision. Jerry Feekes (Westmar College) met a similar fate when Frohling handed him a 10-6 decision in the semi-final. The Saturday night match for the 150 lb. National Championship was a tight affair from the start, with Frohling having the edge on his opponent. Bill Schmidt (Augsburg College) wrestled neck-to-neck with Frohling throughout the 1st and 2nd period, Leading 6-5, halfway through the third period, Frohling scored a sudden takedown on Schmidt. Fifteen seconds later, the match was settled as Frohling. quickly moved in for a 6:42 pin. The pin enabled Peru State to finish 15th in the top 20 teams of the tournament. This strong finish is a sharp contrast to last year's performance, when Peru State finished 62th in the team list. During the consolation finals, Coach Marty Dwine commented, "There's no doubt our :overall team performance could've been better. But there's no team effort in this tournament. The National tournament stresses individual performance." When asked about Frohling's performance in the tournament, he replied, "Bud's abilities and desire to win is what brought him to the finals."

PINNED! Following up a quick takedown, Frohling closes in for a surprise pin in the third period. And the "pin slap", shown in photo, is given by the referee, touching off a short celebration by Frohling' s teammates and Peru fans.

When I first heard about the cancellation of 1975 spring sports due to lack of funds, I was left in a state of surprise and shock. The announcement was about as uneipected as a mother-in -law's visit. The路 idea of going without baseball, golf, tennis and track this spring is rather un-American and untraditional to me. But, when I heard that we need two thousand green bills to keep the sports going, I felt like throwing in the towel. When you have 10 days to raise two grand, the odds of succeding seem near impossible. After returning from Spring break, I was again surprised to hear that the lettermen achieved their $2,000 goal. Either someone did a few financial tricks or the lettermen really went all out to get the needed dough .. According to Coach Fitzgerald, they raised the needed money for the spring sports路 to operate on a skeleton budget. This act of saving 1975 spring sports from a certain death indicates THE WINNAH! Returnseveral things which should be pointed out. If there is sport apathy ing from a short off-mat here at Peru State, it certainly would be hard to find. With people celebration after the decishelling out the needed cash, strong support for the spring sports is . sive pin, Bud Frohling is 路indisputably evident. The fact that the lettermen themselves raised the money is another good sign to consider. They show spirit and desire to play spring sports. Theydidn'tsitaroundandsay, "Man, that's a bummer!" They went out and raised the needed cash by accepting contributions and selling tickets to a boxing ,smoker. 路 They also proved that you can't keep a good man down.

wrestlers were seeded in their respective weight classes. The National tournament started in earnest with preliminary and 1st round matches on Thursday afternoon. And the Bobcats started falling right and left as they ran into tough competition. In the preliminary round matches, 134 lb. Rick Norval was pinned by Jerry Parkinson of Northern State in 3:15. Bob Brown, a 177 lb. entry, lost a 11-4 decision to Ron Cole of Southern Oregon. The 1st round action spelled DE-F-E-A-T for three Bobcats. John Whisler Jost a 14-7 decision to Jerry Sannas of Dickenson State. Whisler advanced to the 1st round after he pinned David Izzo of Grand Valley State in 7:06. Kent Coleman lost a close 2-0 decision to. Rocky Isley of Central Washington. Fred Marisett also lost a close 3-2 decision to Bob Whelan of Bemidji.

Marisett was stopped in the third round when Jerry Reker of Southwest Minnesota made a 2:19 pin. Gary Leosing was a second round victim as Glenn Guerin of Taylor handed him a 6-0 decision. Only one Bobcat was left after second round matches were completed. That was Bud Frohling, still alive in the 150 lb. class competition. He pinned Craig Faldet of Winona with eight seconds left in the preliminary round. After decisioning Steve Rogland (U. of

Snyder expressed hope that understanding the organization will result in support from the students upon graduating from Peru. The speaking appearance was one of a series conducted by Snyder to various groups on campus to acquaint students to the foundation. SGA senators voted The Front Page the "What's Right With Peru" award for February and the eighteen couples who completed the 30 hour WOW Dance Marathon won the award for the month of March.

FE.OM TB·E ED ITOlt. I was observing my car gently swerving over highway 67 when· all of a sudden a little man dressed in green leotards and yellow shoes witti bells jumped out and ihrew a stick through my windshield. My car ran off the road tearing off three doors. l started to get back on the road when my quick journalistic mind clicked and I said to myself "This might be a story". I got out and walked over to the little man. He said "I know what you are thinking'', shaking his finger at me, "you think I'm a funny little man that dresses in green leotards and yellow shoes with bells and goes around throwing sticks thru car windshields. Don't you!'' "Well, Mr Green Leotards and Yellow Shoes With Be)Js On Them, it did strike me as unusual.'' "Well, you're wrong," he said as he shook his finger at me, "I'm a troll. I live under highway 67 and dress up in green leotards and yellow shoes with bells on them and throw sticks thru windshields. The State Department hired me to protect the road,"

"Protect it from what, Mr Troll?" "Shut up, mister, or I will kick you with my yellow shoes. (They had· bells on them.) You had no business on ·this road. This road is only for tanks. It's also the practice bombing . grounds of the 5th airborne." · "Mr Troll, don't you think you should tell the people all of this? Somebody is going to-get·hurt with this state department stick method." He cries, "That would take all of the fun out of it. Besides, l save the taxpayers money by using stiCks. Think what the cost would be if I used steel javelins!" · "How did you ever get a job with the state department, Mr Troll?'1 "Hey, that wasn't easy. First you have to prove you're shiftless, malignant, and be able to hold your own in a poker game inside an orange department truck." "Mr Troll, about road repair....

An Old Law, Bad Law And Costly Law

Union wage scales in Las Vegas. Nev .. governed the pay of. workers on a federal power conslrucliou project in Page, Ariz., a town of 4,000 on the' Navajo .Indian Reservation. Residents of the San Luis Valley in Colorado paid two -and - a half times as much to construct a community center ' because Denver's higher pay rates were applied to the project. And wouldn't you wonder why pay scales for a $2.8-million dam project in Oklahoma were predicated on rates for a dam 225 miles away, rather than on a daln only 75 miles away? For that matter, why should electricians - working in the sameeity, Atlanta in this case be paid $1.65 more an hour Ol) a federal housing project than that paid for .private construction work? Explanation: An outdated law enacted during the depression of the 1930s to protect workers from cheap labor rates on federal construction projects. It is called the Davis-Bacon Act. Few Americans ever heard of it. More should. Today, 40 years later, the law is used to subsidize the pay of construction workers - already among the highest paid - at an estimated cost of $1.5 billion a year to U.S. taxpayers. It's a simple law, only three pages long. It says contractors coming Student elections be on federal constructio11 projects must pay the wages prevailing successful (fun).

SGA Senator speaks to SGA The goal of criticism is to leave the person with the feeling that he's been helped. · John F. Kennedy said that victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan. The great success of our Muscular Dystrophy Dance Marathon is without a doubt a victory for our Student Governing Association. However, in the midst of our jubilation, there also lies our orphan. The S.G.A.'s respon. sibility of sponsoring the Dance Marathon was more than just raising money for M.D., it was also. to promote total student involvement in a college ac-

Attacks 60,000 contracts and $40 billion of work. And most of processing, incidentally, still is done by hand, not computers. The law and the way it works has been widely condemned and criticized. Among critics is the Government Accounting Office, official watchdog of Congress. But the most revealing expose of its inequities, exorbitant costs and shortcomings is a new 239page study recently completed and published .by the Wharton School; University of Pennsylvania. The study says: "The workers who needed the Act's protection in 1931 to keep their wages from falling below 25 or 30 cents an hour now are among the best paid American blue-collar craftsmen, whether their wages are measured on an hourly or annual basis. Minimum rates now prescribed for them at times exceed $10 an hour, thirty times as much as the 1931 rate, and five times as much as the minimum wage protection enjoyed by other Americ·an industrial craftsmen of similar development. , , "By extending union wage rates, it (the Act) protects th.e unions against competition ... " Sen. John Tower (R-Tex.l and Paul J. Fannin CR-Ariz.) recently introduced legislation to repeal this anachronism. The Chamber of Commerce of the United States, a sponsor of the Wharton study, has been' fighting for repeal of the DavisBacon for many years. Currently, it has redoubled its efforts, working with construction, trade and professional organizations. Taxpayers should support this repeal drive. Studies indicated · that repeal of the ACt _would result in savings of 5to 6.per cent on federal construction projects, or an estimated $1.5 billion a· year. Isn't it time to bury this relic of another era?

Pipe Smokers Inc. Columbus and his hearty voyagers discovered the art of pipe smoking from the American Indian. The amazed crew watched the silent relaxed redman puffing on pipes called tobaca. The men .were fascinated with "their" discovery. The sailors took the "habit" back to Portugal where it spread rapidly throughout Europe. In 1586 Sir Ralph Lane, commander of a. group of Virginian colonists sent a pipe to Sir . Walter Raleigh. Raleigh · im'. mortalized the pipe by dignifying it and started a pcll tradition of pipe smokers. A little part of Raleigh is still alive today in the pipe smokers. of the area. They all have their preferences, philosophy and stories abOut their refined art. LoQk .closely the next time you eneounter . one. Notice the relaxed 'facial expression of these contented thinkers. Talk to them. They have a way of life all their own. ' Ray Boeche, sophomore art major at Peru State College, says "pipe smoking is a state of mind. It shows a longing for a quieter, simpler pace of life." Ray smokes a pipe because the relaxing· qualities help his thinking processes. His favorite pipe is a corncob which he treasures above his three briars. Dr. Daryl Long, assistant professor of science and mathematics at Peru State College, smokes a pipe to relieve the tension from teaching. Dr. Long doesn't consider himself an addict because he only smokes it during the school day. He a?ds "when vacation comes I put the pipe down and don't pick i~ uP, until school starts again. Although the professor has no preference as far as pipes he does lean toward a tobacco called 303. Jim Smith, senior English major at PSC, smokes for the relaxation.

"Game of Life"

To get an inspiration for a column story at 2:45 in the morning seems rather venturesome to al)ybody, but that's what happened to rne. And it's a revelation about the Game of Life. When you play football, basketball or baseball, you follow certain rules and standards to succeed or you'll luck out and lose the game. The same principle is used when you play the Game,of Life. You plav by the rules and standards or you'll be beaten long before the game is over. From the moment you are born to the moment you die, you are a participant in the Game of Life. You have a lifetime to achieve your potential to be a rich millionaire or a poor bum. At a certain time in your life, the game ball is handed to you. It is up to you to carry that ball through that line. Whether or not you make it through will be dependent. on your education, talents, skills and the desire to achieve. Whether or not you decide to pass the ball around depends on your attitudes toward your friends and fellow-man. Do you want to selfishly carry the ball by yourself or share Life's troubles and joy with others? When you first started walking and talking, you were scoring first downs and gaining yardage. Your graduation from high school, or your wedding day was your glorious run for a touchdown. You got a clipping penalty?? That's for not keeping within the Rules of the Game. The Game is long and hard to play until that final day when your Grand Referee blows the whistle and says, "Okay, buddy, the game's over. Go to the locker room and take a shower. You're finished." To me, that will be a day to look forward to, when I can rest in peace, knowing that I've done my best in the Game of Life.

Peru State baseball Season draws near "We hope to do as well as we did last year." That was the comment of head baseball Coach Tom Fitzgerald as 29 baseball hopefuls worked out in preparation for their season opener with Nebraska Wesleyan, April 3, in Lincoln. Among the 29 Bobcat players were IO lettermen from last year's squad. Gerald Kimball, Dave McDaniel, David Rombach, Robin Simmons, and Pat Tynon are the seniors, playing their final diamond season for Peru State. Two junior lettermen, Arnold Allgood and Dennis Dickman, will join the squad as pitchers. Rounding out the list of returning lettermen are Richard Kimball, Tim Macke,· and Richard Tynon as sophomores. Compromising almost half of the squad, the 14 freshmen players give Coach Fitzgerald plenty of team prospects and team depth. "I'm very impressed, so far, with the performance of Dale Patton, Mike Seiler and Jim Biere in practice sessions," he commented. A unique feature of baseball practice sessions this year is the use of "Whizz." No it's not a new gatorade-type drink, but it's a

The Cavaliers started their championship march with a 5538 first-round victory over the Jazz. Phillips was high scorer with 22 points for the Cavaliers. Skiles chipped in 10 points for the losing Jazz. Meanwhile, a 16 point effort by Von Bachle led

the Celtics to a 40-27 conquest of the Conquistadors. DeRuntz and Zabawa contributed six points each for the Conquistadors. The second round action saw the first tournament meeting between the two finalist teams. And the Cavaliers let the Celtics have a taste of defeat in a 41-30 victory. Randolph paced the Cavaliers with 10 points, while Von Bachle contributed eight points for the Celtics. The Cavaliers reached the finals in the third round action with a 43-37 dethroning of the Kings. Phillips popped in 16 points for the Cavaliers while

The "Whizz," so nicknamed by the players, sends balls flying down the net corridor to Bobcat batters, eager to sharpen their batting eye. The machine·can be set up for fast balls up to 90 mph and hard-breaking curve balls. When weather permits, the machine caw also be used for infield and pop fly practice. Coach Fitzgerald initiated the use of the machine in the hope that the team batting average will improve. The Co-Captains for this year's squad are Dave McDaniel and David Rombach. According to Coach Fitzgerald, these two seniors will provide leadership and be the "workhorse" for the team. The March 26th double-header with Tarkio was postponed due to chilij weather left by Old

President April 3, 1975 .


In winter time it was just too cold to do it. But now that spring is here they're out again with jaws moving. I refer. to conversations and its abuse by certain individuals.· Conversation is an important part of communication, but springtime brings its downfall. The warm weather permits the jaws to move more smoothly enabling them to chatter all day long. Most of conversation is unnecessary and the rest of it is obscene. These "talkers" dwell on the price of socks, the weather, and the . price increase of washers at the hardware store. They constantly reflect their I.Q. by their conversation. Their conversation is directly proportional to their I.Q. If they talk about wet socks all day long they are in the wet' socks category. If they will admit it to themselves, ·they would rather be in the company of people.wha talk about wet socks all day long. I have no quarrel with peo,ple who want to talk about wet socks. If they want to, I say let them! It isn't easy to be eccentric. I know. Let me give you the groups of talk~rs so that you may prepare yourself for the spring onslaught. The Prober. These people ask you all'sorts of personal questions so that they can go home and improve your personality to their neighbors. The only way to handle the prober is by acting deranged. It's easier than you think. I had this experience once, "Say, Ray, who's the most impressive man you've ever met?" "Oh, I s'pose Martin Van Buren the 8th president of the United States. Marty we used to call h~m." "Are you Crazy Kappel?" "Marty and I used to go downtown to play pool and talk about the .economy, and the horrible details of the washer price increase at the hardware store.'' · "Are you deranged, Kappel?!" (Notice the effect.) "Marty and I used to play golf out on the Whitehouse lawn. He had this hole he nicknamed economy. He always four-putted it, three was par you know." "You are crazy Kappel". They run off and never bot~er me agai~~


The interrupter. After a hard day's work at the office I was weanly stumbling along when someone walked up to me and said, "Say, Frank, hows the Ped going?" "My name isn't... " "Gee, Mr D' Addesa, what makes you want to edit the Ped every · year?" "My name is Ray Ka ... " "It must be dedication. I admire that." "I'm not Frank D'Add... " "I've always wanted to be dedicated. How do you do it Frank?" "Look, for the last time I'm not Frank D'Add ... " "Well, it's been nice talking to you Frank. Keep up the goodwork." Super Jaw. This close personal friend of the mouth makes ta~ing ln:s livelihood. They're easy to spot.. The lower extremity of the head continues to slam violently against the stationary upper extremity all day long. Ears begin to fall off all around them. They can expound on any subject that is insignificant or obvious .. Consider the conversa tion I heard the other day. "Say, Ray, do you suppose I'm using the right toothpaste? I'm awfully worried about which kindto use, you know there are so many to pick from, I just can't· decide between peppermint flavored or just the ordinary stuff I've been using, I'd hate to make a w.rong decision and· be stuck with the wrong kind, then I'd be unhappy. And so would be my teeth, I just don't know which one to try. What gets me is the decision, you know, whether to use the ordinary stuff or take a chance with peppermint, I'd hate to make a mistake, you know, that sort of thing coJ.iJd leave a psychological scar!" The Joker. This person sits at home every night and writes down all the old jokes he will force into his conversation the next day. They tag these humorous tidbits on to a sentence. An example is, "I need that about like I need a hole in the head;" or ·· t need thal about like l need the plague." This is always followed by a horrendous laugh admitting self-wit. They're easy to stay away from, you can "smell their jokes a mile off."

As Referee Shaffer watches, Dan Cotton throws a straight arm punch at David Young's face in .the smoker finale. Young took such a facial beating that the ·bout was stopped after two rounds, thus giving Cotton a TKO credit.

A little bit of Madison Square Garden excitement came to Peru State campus as the First Annual Spring Smoker' was held in the PSC gym, April 1st. The boxing affair was attended by 475 fans that saw twenty-four athletes knock each other out for · a common cause: to raise money for spring sports. The boxing fans that came to watch the smoker were not disappointed as the 24 athleteturned-fighters put on a good show of fighting spirit. The first bout matched up two PSC wrestlers: Mark Yori and Lonnie Quinn. Both fighters showed some good hitting and the crowd responded with approval. Quinn .had the upper hand and won· a split decision, 1'74-169 (total scoring of three rounds by three scorers). The Gary Lesoing-Bud Kimball matchup gave the boxing fans a little bit of Ali dancing to watch. With Lesoing being the aggressor, Kimball danced backward in defense. Kimball had the better defense ·and hitting as he gained a 173-166 split decision. During the bout between Mike Baker and Stan Wissell, the intensity of the past three bouts became apparent. A support column beneath the ring slipped and part of the canvas mat cav~ in. After a five minute ·delay, the support was fixed and the fight resumed. It was a spirited fight with Wissell showing a backhand swing to spice up the action. However, Baker came on in the third rowid to break Wissell's spirit for a 176152 wianimous decision. In the physical mismatch of the evening, Charlie Fox (6 foot 157 lbs.) weiit up against Jeff Pease (5 foot 8inch 185 lbs.). Fox out-foxed Pease and used his long· reach to land a few good

pwiches. Fox won the last two rowids to win a 168-160 split decision. Before a 15 minute intermission, Dan Janak won a 171-166 split decision from Randy Wolf, while Scott Hoegh gained a 170-162 unanimous &cision over Duane Skiles. Henry McCullough showed some conservative fighting and good dancing to squeak out a 167164 split decision over Roger Harders. John Goodell ducked a few pwiches in his bout with Jeff Salburg. Salburg, however, landed quite a few hits and won a 175-160 wianimous decision. In one of the closest bouts of the evening, Brad Johnson squeaked out a 165-163 split decision over Ken Fike. The Arnie Allgood-Pat Tynon bout came up and the crowd was treated to a real fight. Both fighters ·exchanged good flurries of pwiches in the first two rowids. Allgood landed a good solid right pwich on Tynon in the third rowid to gain a TKO. A standing ovation was given to Allgood by the boxing crowd after the fight. Another spirited fight was seen between Don Snider and Gordon Thiesfeld. However, Thiesfeld wore out in the third round as Snider had the better arms to win a 169-165 split decision. The nightcap of the smoker was a bout between Dan Cotton and David Young. It started out as a friendly tussle, then they got down to business. Cotton pwi· ched away at Yowig's face until it got bloody after two rowids. An examination by Mrs Miller and Coach Riley determined the face injury to be serious enough to stop the fight. And a TKO was given to Dan Cotton to end the evening's fights.

A bizarre play which nad actors using nonsense verbals instead of the standard lines was performed at the end of . the drama workshop Sunday. This unusual workshop was headed by two men of the Fargo-Morehead . Community Theatre in Fargo, North Dakota, ·or. James Rockey and Mr. David Philips, technical director. These drama professionals brought a new acting concept of Ega Dega (pronounced with long El to the high school and PSC students involved. Ega Dega is a concept worked out by Dr. Rockey as he explains, "Ega Dega is just a sound. For a couple of years I've been developing the concept of freeing the audience from having to listen to structured language. It also frees the actor from the necessity of giving structured language, so that he can pay attention to physical movement, voice patterns, and he doesn't have to worry about memorizing lines." Rockey went on to refer this to the workshop session explaining that a girl appears on stage and another appears facing her. They have a conversation in nonsense verbals ending with the confrontation of Ega Dega. One says Ega Dega Di and the other says Ega Dega Do. Another actor arrives

"Do we have a lucky Bobcat paw around here??'

After capricious MoUter Nature had her final snowy fling, Spring · arrived in the form of April showers and Spring Sports. It may be a bit wet; but when you see a football practice or a baseball doubleheader, you can be sure it's Spring. I was one of the few brave souls who turned out for the Bobcats' cold and blustery season opener against Concordia last Monday. The first game is the kind of ball game I love to see. The kind of action that has you on the edge of your seat until the last hit of the game. Bud Kimball was the "Hero of the Hour" as he made a diving catch of a line drive shot that would have given the game to the Bulldogs 9f Concordia. Kimball's winning run on Patton's sacrifice fly was not his own doing, though. It took three other men to do it: Seiler, Rombach and Patton. Fortunately, for myself, I didn't see the second game due to a class I· had to attend... After the Bobcats shellacked Hastings 8-2 in the first game, April 8th, the second game had me really tied up. There we were, in the bottom of tlie seventh inning with two men on and two outs. And we were behind 8~7. What can we do? Again, like the Kimball heroics, someone came through. Peru shortstop, Dave McDaniels, stepped up to the plate and cracked ol'it a two-run single that dropped the game into the Bobcats' hands like a ripe apple. You know, these Bobcats are really lucky. Not financially lucky, mind you, but they are statistically lucky. Had things gone the other way they would very easily be 1-3 instead of 3-1. It could be the Bobcat's lucky paw. It could be the team's moral support. I think it is the fans' support of the team. Besides, who shelled out the two grand needed to keep spring sports going?? I believe these guys are showing their appreciation to their fans by winning those games. Let's show our appreciation of their performance by coming out and watching these guys play for the glory of the Bobcat!!! - the strikeout end -

Peru women track shows strength in Weight division A small squad of Peru State female athletes went to the 1st Annual Fairbury Invitational Track meet, April 7th, in Fairbury, Nebraska. The meet was postponed from April 3rd, when snow covered the track site. No team score were kept as this was a first-time event and small-sized teams attended the meet.
