Volleyball Squad Opens Season with Win and Loss The Peru State Bobkitten volleyball squad opened their 1978 season by splitting a pair of matches at Nebra~­ ka Wesleyan University in Lincoln last Friday, September 15. The veteran Bobkittens opened with a match against Omaha's College of St. Mary. Peru took the first set 15-7 with "excellent teamwork" according to coach Pat Gilbert. In the second set, Gilbert inserted a squad composed of mostly freshmen, and the St. Mary's "Flames" came back to win


by a score of 15-10. In the final set, the Peru varsity came back out and took the set 15-12 to win the match. .The Bobkittens fell behind 11-2 in the first set against hosting Wesleyan, but battled back before falling 15-11. Red-hot Wesleyan went on to win the second set and the match, 15-10, leaving Peru's record at 1-1. ''We actually played better against Wesleyan, but we just got too far down too early," Coach Gilbert said. "We looked real good at

times, but we were too sporadic and Jost our concentration. Once this team realizes its true potential, we could be very good." Gilbert singled out Danelle Warner, Laura Pollman, and Julie Brinkman as turning in outstanding performances. Peru State will next host Dana before travelling to Seward for a triangular with Concordia and Kearney State. The Bobkittens will host Tarkio and Doane in a triangular Sept. 26, and will take on the Midland" A" and "B" teams at Peru Sept. 27.

This handbook is patterned after those used by the Big Eight and Big Ten marching bands. Also included in the book are the color song, the school chant and the Peru State fight song. Incide~tly, this fight song is a new one for Peru this year. P.S.C. Shadows is the song sung byth~ group after· each performance and before dismissal.

handbook has helped in this increase of school pride. New band uniforms have been ordered and are being manufactured but will not arrive till January. Edris estimated that it takes 25-30 hours of the Instructor's time to prepare a halftime show and get all of the movements charted. The group puts in 240 man hours a week and if you multiply that by 11 weeks you will see that 2,640 hours are donated by these people. Edris says in the next show the band will perform a rotating square which is a difficult maneuver. October 21 will see the band making a salute to Dixieland and on November 11 they will make a tribute to Latin America and all music will originate from there.

Volleyball Team onWinningTrack The Peru State Bobkittens got back on the winning track with a victory over the Dana College ViQueens at Blair. The Bobkittens take on Wayne State College in the annual Homecoming contest this Friday, Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. in the Peru gymnasium. Dana's hope for revenge for an earlier defeat was dashed as the Bobkittens won in three straight sets. Peru State whipped the hosts 15-8 in the first set, blasted them 15-4 in the second set, and shook off a brief concentration lapse for a 15-11 game-winning margin in the

finale. The win raised the Bobkitten record to 5-4 going into Tuesday night's game at Creighton University in Omaha. According to Coach Pat Gilbert, all six Bobkitten starters played well and earned praise. Starting for Peru State this season are Danelle Warner, senior from Chester; Julie Hartman, senior from Douglas; Desi Kline, senior from Malvern, Ia.;· Laura Pollman, sophomore from Wymore; Julie Brinkman, sophomore from Palmyra; and Diane Armknecht, sophomore from Talmage.

Sophomore quarterback Niel Laxdahl turned in a fine performance with 108 yards passing and three touchdown tosses: Two of those scoring passes were to sophomore Roosevelt Brown, the first a picture-perfect 44-yard ·.toss and the second a dramatic 26-yarder on fourth down and 14 with 1:44 to play. Sophomore Rick Neubauer caught the first scoring toss of the game and of the year on an eight-yard play in the first quarter. Defensively, sophomore Ed Connelly again led Peru with 14 tackles. The Benedictine Ravens are 3-1 for the year after last weekend's 41-6 romp over Friends University. Peru won the contest at Atchison, Kansas, last season 14-6, one of the few blotches on the Raven 1977 record which included a post-season appearance in the Boot Hill Bowl.

Eight students are enrolled in their Field Work Practicum for the fall semester according to Ms. Nancy Emerson, instructor of Sociology/Social Work. The course is mandatory for all social work majors in fulfilling their graduation requirements. The Field Work Practicum is designed to give the students an educational experience in the practice of social work under the instruction and supervision of c. social worker in a community agency, Ms. Emerson said. In essence the student is preparing himself for perspective employment in the field of social work. Three hours of college credit are earned at the completion of the course, which lasts the duration of the semester. Ms. Emerson noted that t)le student is in actual field work practice eight to ten hours. a week. The student utilizes all previous classroom knowledge gained in social work in fulfilling the practicum course, Ms. Emerson said. Mr Tom Plith, M.S.W., of the Mental Health Clinic in Auburn is Ms. Emerson's consultant .and coordinator of the practicum. Both Mr Plith and Ms. Emerson meet with the students on a regular basis to assess progress made thus far. A verbal or written contract has been made by the student and his supervisor as to assigned duties and

responsibilities, of which the student takes very seriously, Ms. Emerson said . Students enrolled and their assignments are as follows: Susar Antes, Nebraska City Manor, Nebraska City; Thomas Wooten, Good Samaritan Home, Auburn; Bridget Hoover, Headstart, Peru; Cynthia Mertens, Welfare Dept., Auburn; Jim Lennerton, Beatrice State Home, Beatrice; Anne Stribling, Southeast Community Action, Auburn, Cynthia Mahoney, Health Dept., Auburn; and Judy Donahue, Blue Vallue Mental Health, Auburn. Ms. Emerson feels that the course assignments should be expanded to agencies in urban areas outside southeast Nebraska, so the students could get a fully developed view of social work outside of rural areas. At the end of the semester, the agency supervisor will furnish the School with a written evaluation indicating the student's general progress, his a(!ijustment to the setting, ;his understanding of sqfaal and administrative problems, .his ability tp relate to his clients, and, of course, his potentials as a professional social worker, Ms. Emerson said. This evah.tation will be discussed with the student and cosigned by him, prior to submitting it to the School. This evaluation and grade become part of the student's total educational record.

SOUNDS OF LITTLE Ff!:ET on campus mark not the youngest freshman class in PSC history, but the many facets of the Peru State College campus. These youngsters and their tea.:hers pause to pet a willing canine on their way from the Student Center to their Head Start quarters In the Education building. Two groups, the Head Start project, and a pre-school share the Education Building and the campus with more traditional students.






.EXCUSE ME ... By Beth Propst As a journalism student it is my duty to print information that is important and should be known by the students at Peru State College. I am obligated to write in an unbiased manner in order to present the facts to you. It was my contention that, the administrative staff wou.ld rem.ain unbiased and strive for the protection of all Student's Rights. About two weeks ago I went to Mr L. David Eaton, D.irector of Residence Life and asked him for information on a student suspension case. He refu~ed to, release inforI!lation on the grounds .that h~ an? his office are obligated to keep informat10n conf1dent.1al. . . . . . I contend ~at the nght to a fair and 1m~ar~1al hearmg 1.s one of our nghts. I contend that anyone 1s mn~ent unt.1! proven guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt. I also contend t}1at it is not only my duty but Mr ~ato~'s and Dr. Apil~do's duty as well, to a~tempt .to extingmsh .rumors w~ic~ could endan~er. a fair and im~artial heanng .or preJµ<J,ice any Comm1ss10n member agamst a student bemg brought before the .SAC. . Little ~ffort was. ~ade on this student's behalf \!Oncerning these pomts. Adm1mstrator~ were ~orried about th~ ima~e of the college, as well as their ow.n images, when their mam concern s~ould .have been to the student. After ?emg gi~en the run-around by Eaton and Apilado I sought mfoi:mat1on elsew~er~. I appJ:'.o~ched Mr Roger ~landers, Director of Institut1?nal Relations. He made a smce~e to get me anythmg he could. Flanders. called m,e with th~,~tatement that appeared in the last Ped. I thank him·for 41~,time and trouble.

/ And thanks to Terry Gilliland I was' informed of the hearing,on October 23 in which appeal of the suspension would be heard. As a member of t}1e SAC, Gilliland investigated the case very thoroug}1ly. I thank him for his concern for all PSC students' rights and the proper use 9f. the Due Process System. He showed me that lawyers aren't the only ones who stand up for students anymore. · I commend the other administrative and staff members of · the Commission. Most of them were wil\ing ·to,., hear all information, question, and c.orrect any injustices. . I must, however, criticize the Student Representatives. I was disappointed that so few questions and comm~nts were made by them. YOU are OUR representatives on the SAC and I ask you to represent us. It has been called to my attention that certain SAC members feel that I, Kent Propst, sports editor for the Ped, and other guests may have been disruptive during:the hearing. Speaking for myself, if YQU f~l I wa& disruptive I invite you to contact me and review the tapes with me. I ask you to show me where and how 1 was di~ruptiv~. In conclusion, I was very proud when the ~tatement "nobody won and nobody lost" was made. Jus_tice was served. The student was punished and a conflict in the Student Handbook was resolved. 1 was proud to see people gettmg ~nvolved even wnen u meant putting their own reputations at stake. 1 Wf!S pleased to see people realizing a mistake and being willing to reverse an original decision. This is an ability many people lack. -------

ganizations, college alumni associates and public officials who nominate deserving y.oung w9µien to t>ilrticipate m the program. Serving as chairman of the program's Advisory Board is Mrs Dexter Otis Arnold, honorary president of the General Federation of Women's Clubs. .The women listed, along with approximately 12,000 fellow Outstanding Young Women of America from across the United States will be presented in· the p;estigious annual awards volume. From fifty-one state winners, the Ten Outstanding Young Women of America will be chosen. The ten national winners will then be honored at the annual awards luncheon to be held this fall in Washington, D.C. Miss Kotouc is a senior this year at Peru State.

Former editor writes PSC sports By Linda Henley Kent Propst, .who writes most of the sports information stories for. Peru State College, has practically been "a~ound the horn" in journahsm. ·· Kent graduated in the fall of 1975 from Seward High School, where he worked on the annual staff as co-editor and editor. He w~s also the school's sports writer. Propst began his ~areer after high school as. editor of the P~ru Challenge, the commerc1al newspaper that serves Peru and the outlying areas. After nearly. a year of working as editor of The Challenge, Kent was offered a journalism scholarship at Peru. He was editor of this paper, The Pedagogian, last year.

Kent's biggest problem as editor was getting acros_s the· idea to staff members that stories had to come from everyone. This year Kent i~ serving as sports editor for the Ped,, but he "wears many hats." In addition to class~s a.t PSC, he writes the sports stQries that. the PSC Department of Instution Relations (formerly the News Bureau) senctS to area newspapers. According to Keqt, ''this is not just a, work-study job where you put in a few hours for a few bucks. This job is time consuming. Spmetimes my studies have to suffer because of this job and viceversa," he said. Kent would like to work as a sports information director for a college, or as a sports writer for a magazine.

FORMER EDITOR of the Pedagogian, Kent Propst, was named Sports Information Director of Peru State College. Propst, a Junior, is also Sports Editor for the Pedagogian this semester.

Ten seniors in· final game

On this particular play Alvin Holder became the first Bobcat to pas the 1000 yard rushing mark. He also is the first running back in Nebraska to reach the milestone this year. ·

Holder sets new :rero~ hut.... Peru 00 to Northwffitem 34-7 Northwestern College shattered Peru State's µpset hopes last Saturday with a 34-7 win over the Bobcats. The loss left Peru 4-3-2 going into Saturday's season finale against Doane·College, 24-20 winners over~· lOth,ranked anq previousiy- -undefeated Hastings. The Red Raiders of Northwestel'I! ~imply had too much at stake to be surprised by .flie Bobcats. On the li11e was their number six rating, a berth in the NAIA playoffs for national championship, the final regular season. game, and a voc1;1l "Parents' ·Day" crowd at Orange City; fa. The }taiders have now won nine straight for a 9'1 record. The Bobcats trail~ 3-0 in the s~ond q~rter, but wer~ threatening at the Northwestef!l one;-yard line, wl:ten the hosts put up a mighty goal-line stand to stop the Bobcats. Two plays later, Raider . Marty Guthmiller ~ught the Peru defense blit:i;ing and ran around his righ,t side for .a 93-yard s-c9re. Later in that same quarter Peru . again . had . the ball inside the Northwestern one but a fun;ibled pitchout coot the Bobcats another scoring opportunity.

There were some bright spots for Peru, however. Sophomore running back Alvin Holder became the' first Peru State athlete .to gain over 1,000 yards in a season. Holder had r7 yards to bring his season total to 1,051 yards, the first back in Nebraska this season to crack the 1,000 yard mark. Holder also set a Peru season record for number of catties, Holder has now lugged the ball 205 times, breaking Barry Reed's--.1973 mark pf 192 carries. Quarterback Niel Laxdal ha.d anothe.r good day, completing eight of 25 passes for 122 yards and Peru's lone touchdown. Laxdal, a sophomore, has now passed for 738 yards · this season and . has s~fered only eight interceptions. The Peru pass defense set a scJ100l r~ord for number of interceptions in a single season. Steve Orton picked off a Rai.der pass late in the first half to give the defense 16 interceptions on the year. The old record was held by several Peru squads. Roo.evelt Brown, a sopholl!ore wide receiver, scored .he only Peru. touchdown when Laxdal hit him. on a 45-yard scoring strike.

The jobs they will perform may vary upon what type of internship they are interested in. The employment may consist of making pos-

sters, writing articles, making video tapes, and working closely with Legislation dealing with higher education. The students will receive minimum wage for their work and 12 credit hours. Peru students have served internships in previous years. Dr. Clyde Barrett, vice-president of academic affairs, said he believed, "this is an education experience for the students."

Kappa Delta Pi initiates to be December 3 . By Danelle Warner Kappa Delta Pi initiated 11 sophomore pledges' and 25 new members into its organization in a ceremony Monday, November 20. Mary Windle, President of Kll.ppa Delta Pi, welcomed the audience and introduced the officers who later on in the program assisted in pledging the new members. The Invocation was given by Richard Dinsdale, Reverand of the First United Methodist Church in Falls City. Entertainment for the evening was furnished by the Falls City High School Swing choir. These students under the direction of Mildred Appleoff chose four selec-

lions and presented them to the audience. Jeff Jacobs, M.C. for the initiation introduced Dr. Larry A. Tangeman who was the guest speaker. Dr. Tangeman addressed members of Kappa Delta Pi and his speech was warmly received. The initiation of Pledges and the presentation of new members followed Dr. Tangeman's address. Reverand Dinsdale gave the Benediction and to conclude the program the new members of the organization assembled on stage for picture taking. A reception was held in Diddel Court immediately following the ceremony.

The Peru State College choir will present its third annual performance of "Ye Olde Boar's Head Feaste" in the student center cafeteria at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 3. The feast, a Christmas dinner in the English medieval tradition, will be accompanied by choral singing. Other traditional music will be performed by a wandering minstrel, recorder and string groups, and Dr. David M. Edris' brass choir. The bringing in of the boar's head, the 'Toast of the Wassail,' a mummer's play performed by the Peru Players and directed by Dr. Royal Eckert, and four glorious pipers from the Omaha Council Bluffs Scottish Pipe and Drum Association will complete the evening. "The use of the boar's head at Christmas is based not only on its value as an article of food, but its symbolism as well," said Dr. Edward Camealy, professor of music at Peru. "The boar, because it roots into the ground with its tusks, has long been revered as -having


taught mankind the art ol plowing. 'The wassail was the old Anglo-Saxon drinking pledge of 'Waes-Hael,' which means 'be in good health.' The custom of wassailing the fruit trees was common throughout England. Men went out to the orchard with a large jug of cider and they drank a toast to the trees. often beating upon them. bidding them to bear fruit in the coming Spring." he explained. Assisting Dr. Camealy in conducting the program will be Lori Stortenbecker of Nebraska City, president of the choir; vice president Sharon Bartels, Sterling; and secretary - treasurer Dee Dettmer, Syracuse. Tickets for the dinner and program are on sale until Friday, Dec. 1. The price is five dollars for both adults and children.

Student Senate By Linda Henley The Student Senate is electing a new Senator-at-Large to replace Sheilla LaMountain, who resigned a couple of weeks ago. Anyone interested in the position should attend the next regular Student Senate meeting and let his interest be known. Other topics discussed were:

ridge, Colorado. Anyone is welcome and the cost is $235.00; The calendar for next semester has been completed; A new lunch ticket system for next semester was proposed; and the new student code was discussed but no action was taken. The Senate meeting was held in Patti George's office because there was another meeting already in the West A ski trip during the first Dining Room of the Student week of January in Brecken- Center.

But, fate stepped in and y eth Propst It seems that there are some miscon~eptions on campus as to just what a newspaper's function entails. Any newspaper (college or otherwise) has. seven basic functions. The first, and most important function is to inform readers. On a college campus, the newspaper is the primary source Qf By C.

False information printed in a newspaper reflects badly not only on the college paper but the college itself. It is the duty of the paper to pursue a controversial story, no matter what the consequences. Nebraska Governor and One of the primary representatives of the college is its U.S. Senator-elect J.

Mr. Davis promptly called Mr L. David Eaton and authorities. Next, he began to check that all the residents were cleared out of· the building. After a futile search for anything connected with the bomb scare, it became evident that the dorm residents had been the victims of yet another foolish prank.

Apathetic freshmen class hinder fundraising events

Exon speaks

, J: PERU STATE'S new swimming pool isn't ready for swimmers yet, but a little concrete should add a nice touch.

The class is proposing to collect a fee of $ .25 from all full-time freshmen living on campus. Primm said, "We have a few small bills to pay, and we'll have more later." Jodi Neubauer, class secretary, agreed that the <;lass as a whole is very apathetical. "We had a fund-raising 'slave auction' scheduled for November 15," according to Neubauer, "and all twenty of the volunteers dropped out." A class meeting was held in the living room of Morgan Hall on November 15, and only three of the four class officers were able to attend.

Organization questioned

Darrell Wellman Involved

As I was dusting out my mailbox the other morning, I was wondering, "Where are my letters to the editor?" I have encouraged you readers to respond with the Pedagogian by writing your thoughts down and sending them to me. Up to this time, I have received but one letter and for a campus of nearly seven hundred that is not a very large ratio. With the first semester quickly corning to a close, I will encourage you once again to use the paper as a means of communicating with others because that is why it is printed. The Ped is printed by and for students and cannot be successful· without reader input. Right now there are many topics worthy of comment and I will remind you of a few of them. How about the suspension of certain students? It affects us all either directly or indirectly. Or, how about the broken glass in the front door of the Administration Building? That does very little to improve the outlook of Peru to prospective students! Or let us look at all of the problems at Delzell. I would be angry if disturbances in my hall kept me awake till five in the morning. These are infringing on the resident's right to study and sleep. Maybe we prefer to sit back and let someone else solve all of our problems. Our administrators and faculty have many other important items to attend to rather than being called in to solve problems at the dorms every week. I am curious over the lack of enthusiasm shown about the contest set up so clubs and groups could paint the windows in the cafeteria. First place paintings would win 30 pounds of ham but very few groups showed interest in this. Why only a little interest in this when it is a respectable challenge? Maybe we should try to get involved more in college affairs. Finally, a petition concerning alcohol in the dormitories will soon be in circulation and we must "all" voice our opinions. Everyone should respond either favorably or unfavorably to this important issue. It will take participation by many to make or break the issue and a lack of interest will accomplish nothing. So come on, let's show a little interest in our school. Apathy doesn't help anyone.

Cats end football season. with win ,

The Peru State Bobcats marked themselves as a team of the future with a convincing 45-6 romp past Doane College in the season finale for both teams in Peru's Oak Bowl. An explosive aerial attack and a rock-hard defense paved the way past 6-4 Doane in the final contest for ten Peru seniors. The 1978 Bobcats finished at 5-3-2. The last time Peru State had a winning football season, John F. Kennedy was the President and Peru was referred to as "Peru State Teachers College." The 'Cats have suffered through 15 losing seasons dating back to Jack Mclntire's 1962 squad that finished 5-2-2. Coach Jerry Joy saw his veteran defense hold the Doane Tigers to 30 rushing yards in the cold and windy Oak Bowl Saturday, and limit the Tigers to 88 total yards.: Meanwhile, the passing arm of Niel Laxdal amassed 237 yards on 12 of 22 passes, and the sophomore

from Lakeland, Fla., connected with standout wide receiver Roosevelt Brown for three touchdowns on passes of 25; 46, and 41 yards. Peru outgained Doane by a whopping 390 to 88 yards. Meanwhile, the Peru rushing attack was having a "sub-par" day, netting 153 rushing yards. As usual, sophomore running back Alvin Holder was the key, gaining 94 yards on-22 carries before setting out most of the fourth quarter as the Peru reserves cleaned up. The 45-point outburst was Peru's high scoring total for the season. The six points by Doane was the lowest point total ·allowed this season. The win was particularly pleasing to the Peru seniors, who had not beaten Doane in the previous three years including last year's 35-6 loss at Crete. The big win came. on the heels of Peru's disappointing 34-7 loss to fourth-rated ..Northwestern Iowa last week. Doane was coming off an upset win over lOthranked and previously unde-


feated Hastings. Ten seniors ended their careers at Peru State. All ten started Saturday, including offensive linemen Mark Johnson, center; Bob Hruby, guard; Dan Navrkal, tackle; and Rick Spears, tight end. Defensively, senior starters were tackles Mike Larsen and Tim Schaefer; end, Kent Coleman; .and backs Bill Pursley, Ken 'Denning, and Otis Samuel. The important thing ap~ pears to be the yotrth Coach Joy will return at the skill positions - there were no senior running backs or quarterbacks; the receiving corps will return intact except for Spears, who shared time with freshman Jake Knight; the top six linebackers are underclassmen; the defensive end and middle guard spots will be filled by returnees; and a number of defensive backs saw considerable action this season on a team that set a Peru record for interceptions . ·The kicking game should be solid in the future, wi\h the return of: extra point


specialist Dan Todd, a junior who successfully converted 23 of 26 PAT's including a schoolrecord 19 consecutive extra points; field goal and kickoff ace Kevin Niday, sophomore, who accounted for 21 points this season; and punter Terry Hinkle, only a freshman. The Bobcats scored 215 points this season, and 211 came from underclassmen. Roosevelt Brown ended the season as the top scorer with 54 points on nine touchdowns followed by Alv1n Holder with season TD's for 42 points. Laxdal finished the season with 10l5 passing yards, and tied his own school record for pass completions in a season with 63. In his two seasons at Peru, he has passed for 2013 yards. Holder was the big story this season. The lightningquick halfback gained 1145 yards rushing, shattering the old Peru record by 366 yards. Holder accounted for 1341 yards total offense (rushing, receiving, and kickoff returns).

Several Bobcats named to NAIA team Fla., product set school records in not only rushing yards but carries (227J and" rushing average (114.5). He was also the second-leading pass receiver and scorer for Peru. Ken Denning, senior defensive back, was another Bobcat named to the team. Ken had a super year - he led Peru in pass interceptions with four (this Peru team set a school record for interceptions), tied for third on the tackle chart with 74 stops, and - surprisingly was sixth for the Bobcats in total offense.

Three Peru State football players were named to the District II (Nebraska colleges) All-Star team and another nine were honorable mention in the final National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics District II football report for 1978. Record-breaking running back Alvin Holder was named to the District II backfield. Holder gained 1145 yards this season, good for 14th in the nation, and led the district until the final day when Wayne State's Bob Barry beat him by 16 yards.

attempts, Ken amassed 132 yards, passed for one touchdown, and scored a two-point conversion. The Lakewood, Colo., captain was named "District Defensive Player of the Week" in Peru's 21-21 tie with eventual bowlwinner Chadron State. Bob Hruby earned a spot on the all-star offensive line at guard. Bob started the 1978 season as a defensive tackle, but when injuries slimmed the offensive line ranks Bob went back to the offensive line. His presence paved the way for Holder's feats as well as teammate Marvin McGill, who gained 704 yards, and quarterback Niel Laxdal, who found enough time to complete a s<:hool record-tying 63 passes. Bob is a four-year starter from Comstock and a graduate of Ord High School.

Four Bobcats were named honorable mention offensively. They include Roosevelt Brown, Mark Johnson, Marv McGill, and Niel Laxdal. Brown was responsible for setting a number of records at P.eru this season. The Tampa, Fla., sophomore wide receiver was also named honorable mention last season. Rosey ranks third nationally in punt returns with a 15.8-yard averabe per return and set a Peru record in punt return yardage with 253 yards. He also set a season touchdown reception record with eight. Mark Johnson finished his career as a captain for Peru this year. The starting center, he was another one responsible for Holder's rushing mark. Johnson, .Jrom Columbus, Ohio, lettered all four years at Peru. He has also been a standout baseball player for the Bobcats. Marv· McGili, junior fullback from Brandon, Fla., gained 704 yards this season including game highs of 140 and 105 yards. A powerful blocker, Marv .is a strong runner with a good breakaway speed (he has had the longest runs from scrimmage for Peru the last two seasons - 52 yards in 1977, 63 yards in 1978). Niel Laxdal is another repeat to the honorable mention list in only his second year. The sophomore quarterback from Lakeland, Fla. tied his own season record for pass completions with 63. Niel has. thrown for 2013 yards in his two years at Peru.

The Peru State College wrestling program/will be. going through a rebuilding year under first-year coach Blaine Gorney. The Bobcats open the season December 1 at the University of Nebraska - Omaha Invita tionaL ' The once-powerful Peru State wre~tling program will start with only two lett.ermen on the squad from last season's team that went 0-11 in dual meets. That team finished the season with only four members competing. Lost from that squad is AllAmerican Mark Yori, who set a Peru record with 112 career wins. Yori is now coaching in his home state of Pennsylvania. Gorney will bring some impressive credentials to Peru. Last year at Luther College in Decorah, Ia., his wrestling squad finished in the top twenty among NCAA Division III schools. Gorney was one of seven finalists for the "Rookie Coach of the Year" award from the collegiate wrestling magazine "Amateur Wrestling News." Prior to coaching at Luther, Gorney was head coach at Royalton (Minn. l High School. The Bobcats will play host to two meets this season, both in January. The Dana Vikings will come to Peru for a 7 p.m. matchup on Wednesday, January 10, and the 'Cats will host powerful Kearney State on Friday, January 19 at 6 p.m. The matmen will compete in a number of tournaments this year beginning with the UNO Invitational.

Senators discuss drinking age ~and~ ~s-tate aid to education

ackout leaves many. dents unprepared By Harold Benson. ru .State College experd its first black-out of year December 2. The r outage occured at oximately 5:30 p.m. and · d for more than an . This darkness caused ;.e uncertainty among residents to. whether were safe or not.


but an armed guard was on campus in the Science Building. Little or qo warning W(!S given bef9re the lights went out .and after flickeri!lg several times the electric~ty was gone.)t was surprising to see how many students had no alternate forms of lighting such as candles and flashlights in their possession. Although the . (larkness .brought discomfort to some there were a few .students who enjoyed the outage. It gave them a chance to go sleigh riding and to have a good.time on the ice.

· -- By C. Russell Mittan A discussion of the issues facing the 1979 Nebr(!ska Legislature was open to the public at 7:30 p.µi,, Wednesday, Nov. 29, at the ].>eru State College stµdent center. Item~ of particular .concern at the . Legislative Forum ipcluded the possibil· ities of the State Colleges ever becoming a part of the University system; whether the drinking age in Nebraska. should be raised to 2.1 and if State Aid to Education is meeting expectations.

The senators all seemed to agree that the State College are fl!nctioning sa tisfactorily at the present and there would be no reason for a merger.It was agreed that they hope that we never see such a change need to take place. About the drinking age, they agreed that it should be

raised but there is no easy· way to i~tall such a change and doubt whether a bill abol!t it WO\.!ld pass .. State Aid to Education is .experiencihg no µiajor prob- !ems and doubt whether much action . to . totally revamp it. will be taken. "Legislative Forum:79" was c0:sponsored by _the Southeast Nebraska United Chamber of Commerce and Peru S.tate College. J:i'our southeast Nebraska state senators were In attendance: George Burrows of Adams, Cal Carsten of Avoca, Nelson Merz of Falls City, and Jerome Warner of Waverly. Questioning the senators were four media panelists: Kent Thomas of the Beatrice Sun, Diane Siefeld of KTNC Radio in Falls City, Vicki Miller of Maverick Media, and Ivan Beaumont of the Nebraska City News-Press. One tooic of major impor-

tance that was discussed was the advocacy of raisirig the drinking .age in Nebraska to 21. This qqestion _was brought before the senators by Diane Si~eld. _Senator Warner had this to. say, "There is a very practical problem in raising the dril)king age. I would have to oppose raising it now, even though I opposed the initial lowering of the drinking age." Senator Carsten, on the other hand, expressed that he favored the idea. And Senator Burrows said, "I would support raising it with the consideration that the privilege would not have to be forfeited by those who are presently 19."

Diane Siefeld then asked the senators to comment on a proposed litter bill. "I'm in fa v0r of a jitter bill," said Sem~tor Carsten, "but a good one that'll work." Senator Burrows then added, "I !)aw a lot of problems with the original bill and I don't t)link it solved all of the litter problems."

A brief question and answer session was held with the audience, and several questions were phoned in by The poor water c@ndition radio listeners. The moderin southeast Nebraska was ator for the evening was brought up by Vicki Miller, James Bradley, executive and Senator Carsten said, vice · president of the "The. problem is that we Beatrice Chamber of Comdon't have good water direct- merce.

Rough Week for Bobcat Basketball The Peru State Bobcats weathered a rough week in men's basketball Nov. 21-28.

The· Bobcats host rival Tarkio College. next Tuesday, Dec: 5. That game will follow a Peru-Tarkio junior varsity game which begins at 5:30. Peru State opened the long week with a win over Concordia at Seward. The Bobcats· . . ·dropped four close contests in the next four games, losing to Midland by ·one point in overtime and Doane by four in the · Doane Invitational Nov. 24-25. Wayne State spoiled the 1978 home opener with a six-point decision Monday night and Regis College defeated Peru by four the following night. Coach Bill Squires' cagers aShre 2-6 on the season. Five of


those losses have been by six points or less, including two one-point losses. Midland 76, Peru State 75 The opening game of the Doane Invitational was a bitter disappointment for Peru State as Midland's Jay Mueller hit a jumper with one second remaining in overtime to drop Peru 76-75. Peru guard Danny Shouse, playing with the flu, hit a long jump shot with seven seconds remaining in overtime to give Peru a brief lead. Senior forward Rick Spears was lost for up to six weeks with a knee injury sustained late in the contest. Spears was the second-leading scorer and rebounder up to that point for Peru State. Shouse led Peru with 23 points. Doane 72, Peru State 68 TheDoaneTigersdefeated Peru in the final game of the Doane Invitational Saturday, Nov. 25. The tall Tigers had too much depth for the sick and injured Bobcats.

Peru was playing without the services of All-Stater Danny Shouse, ill that evening, and Rick Spears, senior forward who was injured against Midland.

ME.. .I

By Beth Propst Believe it or not, The PED is back for your reading pleasure second semester! I am very proud to say that we have expanded our staff with an excellent group of reporters. With this larger staff we hope to be able to bring more information to you, our readers. (You are still out there, aren't you?) We received some criticism last semester concerning our coverage of certain events. With 12 members, instead of three, we should be able to cover more functions more thoroughly. Again, our main purpose is to keep you informed of college happenings. We do -0ur best, but we depend upon you to keep us informed of current happenings. I invite you to speak out on any issue -- after all, this is YOUR paper. All letters should be signed, however your name will be withheld upon request. So, come on! Get involved and let us know how you feel! It is also my hope to be able to include more entertaining material in the form of articles, cartoons and photographs. In fact, the PED is looking for an assistant photographer to help us out. If you own a camera and can develop your own film -- PLEASE -- contact any staff member! This is an excellent opportunity for you camera bugs, so for more information get in touch! I am really looking forward to an exciting semester and the opportunity to be editor of your paper. I am always willing to hear your comments and criticisms in an effort to improve the quality of the paper. To get in touch with me write to Mathews 34A via campus mail. I would really like your ideas and suggestions so give me a buzz and we'll .see what can be done!

Dear Editor: For a long time there has been a pet name for a · residence hall where many fine individuals dwell. The name can be found down town in the local tavern, being spread like a social disease. Many people claim that it is the worst dorm in the State College system. . Let us not forget many fine ·people have dwelt in this dorm since i!s conception. The dorm is known as Delzell, affectionately known to those that live there as "the Zoo." Now my prime gripe is the fact that no recognition has been given to the fact that the hall has gone through some miraculous changes. This last semester the entire dorm has taken on a new appearance. This new look is making- it a more decent place to live. Living conditions have also changed due to the fact that many of the past troublesome occupants no longer dwell in the hallowed halls of the Zoo. Even though the image of Delzell is changing, the fact remains that there remains much to be done by us to keep our new image. People still feel that if they walk by the Zoo late at night that they

by Beth Propst Rise up! Rise up and be heard! Prove that apathy isn't one of the noticeable traits of students at PSC. Take a stanct·and make it count! The drinking age controversy is one matter which students should be concerned with and get involved in, no matter what your opinion is. Senator Ralph Kelly of Grand Island, for the third year in a row has introduced a bill into the legislature in an attempt to raise the legal Nebraska drinking age to twenty-one. For those already 19 or older, sit back, relax and have another drink. LB221 has a grandfather clause which would enable those afready of age to continue drinking. But those who turn 19 after the bill becomes law (if it does) would no longer legally be able to drink in Nebraska bars. Be advised, however, the ch\lnces look excellent this year for Senator Kelly's bill to go through. Regent Robert Prokop from Wilber, recently stated that, ''.If I were voting in the legislature, I would vote for it (the drinking age) to be raised." BIG DEAL, right? If you're 19 you don't have to worry. You can still go downtown and indulge in the SQJIS.•:'<.' ,

PSC education interns TLC students 'leave books, work on-site get it together Student edtlcation interns at Peru State College are leaving the textbooks and instead are working on-site. with severely retarded students. The. new program has been initiated by Mr Gene Krebs,departinentofeducation at Peru State College. "First of all, we're involved- in .operation understanding," said Krebs. The Peru students take special students. shopping, plan, parties and other social interactions. In this way the interns are

not only learning more about the special nee<ls of retarded students, but are developing positive self-concepts for the special students, said Krebs. And the program is also a learning process for the community, too. Often times when citizens see severely retarded students, they'll run the other way - they're fearful of them. But the internship program supports the idea. that these students shouldn't be hid. "They are human beings, not monsters

and at Peru State College we're trying to find out more about retarded students," said Krebs. He cited that special education has come a long way from the time that early civilizations destroyed these people or when they were .held in protective custody. In fact recent tests have shown that under similar intern programs special students have improved from 300 to 800 percent.

Sports in the past The beginning of PSC basketball has a vague background. It is believed to have started in the 1902-03 season, with the Peruvians losing a game 6-18 against Lincoln high school. Basketball, before the completion of the chapel and gymnasium in 1905, was played out of doors apparently in the Oak Bowl or on the tennis courts where today's T. J. Majors Hall now stands. Between the first games recorded in 1902, losses came to the Peru teams, until in 1905 when Peru beat Nebraska City, 19-16, in the first game played in the new gym of the Chapel basement. The construction of the Auditorium in 1922 brought an end to the need of the old Chapel gym, so a swimming pool was built where the chapel had been. The new gymnasium floor was first run from east to west, but in 1928, the stage was torn out and the court was run north to so11th. --from Normal on the Hill by Ernest Longfellow of Peru

Previously, all te educational institutions the same residency rerements. LB 304 is passed, it Id be possible for stuts from other states to be idered as residents of aska for the purpose of

Regent Robert Prokop, Ph.D., of Wilber, said he believed the bill is unconstitutional, and that those in favor of LB 304 "just want to give Pottawatamie County, (la.) a break." He added that Pottawatamie County traditionally had sent many students to the University of Nebraska at Omaha when it was a private college, and that he believed this was the basis for the proposed legislation. "What it boils down to is: How much do you want the state to pay for one individual's education? I think it's going to have a hell of a time getting through," Prokop said.

No we did not spot alien beings on radar, .nor did we lea~n of an att~mpted nuclear attack. The impending holocaust which pu~ the .entire newsroom into a panic was actually Just an. over-reacting editor and assistant trying to firld something to put in an empty space on the front page. Befor~ you throw this away thinking the Ped editor totally msane, let me explain the problem to you. Maybe then you will better understand why I am about to become the first bald woman with ulcers at PSC. Most of you haven't any idea how a newspaper is put together or proble!Ils that we frequently have. Putting a paper together 1s more than typing up a story and then seeing it in print. First, the editor assigns stories to the staff. Our small staff requires each person to be at six different places at one time and to be able to type a minimum of 300 words per minute. Mick, our photographer is cal~ed on to take pictures of a basketball game, wbile he 1s supposed to photographing a band concert as he s~oots pictures of the cast of the musical. All 'of the pictures must be developed within a half hour after they are taken and they along with all stories must be at Nebraska City by 8:00 the next morning. · When Ped material arrives at the Nebraska City New~-Press, their entire staff drops whatever they are workmg on to do the Ped. But they don't mind since our paper is more important than theirs. ' · .After our news stories are set in print and our pictures are reduced - we're finished. Oops! Oh yeh. WeJl, we're not finished yet.

Loneliness ... symptom of winter blues

Next we throw all of the stories and photos on lay-out sheets, toss all of the ads on at random, they run off the copies; then we're done! Seliiously, those are the very .basic steps but it invqlves a little bit more time than this. All stories are supposed to be in Nebraska City at least a week before you see the Ped in print. If the News-Press staff has time they will type our stories and ready our photographs for publication. After this is done we have the task oflaying copy and pictures in what v,:e hope is· an eye-catching and interesting arrangement. We do all our ads, with the help of Pat Osbon, and those too must be arranged on the lay-out sheets. When we've finally given up hope and think we're done, we pick it up and find that five really important stories were left out! Truthfully, this has happened. When it does we have to decide what we can hold until the next issue and put together the newspaper jigsaw puzzle all over again. ' Heaving a sigh of relief and taking a swig of Maalox w~ give the paper to Chuck Johnson, and the paper is prmted. We pick up the copies and deliver them to the campus for your reading pleasure: Then the whole process is started over again. . We owe a lot of thanks to the staff in Nebraska City. They're a great bunch of people to work with! Without them, you wouldn't be reading this now. And I'd also like to thank -- oh! Sorry, I have to get this to the typesetter so this can be in the paper. Time can be a killer! Anyway, I hope you understand the time and trouble that we go to so we can get this to you. And besides, I have to go downtown to pick out a wig before the stores close!

Mental Health Service free· with appointment Free mental health counseling is now available to PSC students, according to College Nurse Virginia Miller. Dr. David Bass, a Nebraska City psychologist affiliated with the Blue Valley Mental Health Clinics, is on campus at the Health Clinic every Wednesday from 1-5 p.m., Mrs Miller said. "Students must make appointments to see Dr. Bass," she said, ;'because we've been pretty busy lately. The appointments were originally made for one hour, but now most of them are only a

half-hour as more students are coming 0in for counseling." Mrs Miller said Peru has had similar programs during the past several years, but that some form of additional counseling has been especially needed since Dr. Myron Apilado, originally the college's psychologist/ counselor, was made Dean of Student Services and given increased administrative responsibil,ities. All cotinseling records are kept confidential by Dr. Bass, Mrs Miller said, rather than by the college, so no

Once a paper-mache face is formed from the clay mold, a white gesso base and brightly painted features are applied, she said. The "story hour" program, now in its eighth year, is growing in popularity. "More and more students are taking part in the program - and some kids come early and stay longer.

PSC residence halls will closefor spring break Saturday, March 17, at 9 a.m,, according to Dave Eaton, Director of Residence Life. Eaton said all students must be out of the residence halls by that time. Housing for students who cannot ·leave over spring break will . be in Majors Hall at $4 per day, he said, and students must provide their. own linens.



Students are instructed to dump wastebaskets, unplug all electrical appliances, remove all perishable refrigerated food, close and Iock all windows, turn out all lights, and lock the room door before leaving on Saturday, Eaton said. He added that students living on the first floor or b.asement level should also close their curtains.

"There are three main reasons we're considering leaving Morgan open during spring break: there are a significant number of student teachers who will remain at the college during that time, part of Morgan's resident staff will be remaining in the dormitory, and Morgan also has a security system which would allow students to enter through the main lobby," Eaton said.

Attrition is problem now more than ever

·150 attend PSC day


by Deb Moore Approximately 150 students attended Peru State College Day in Omaha February 24, according to Jan Wiezorek, College Relations Director. "We can really consider it a success," Wiezorek said, "especially since this is the first time we've done something like this in Omaha." Wiezorek said eight of the college's academic divisions were represented at PSC Day. About 50 students in attendance expressed a definite interest· in PSC, Wiezorek said. "I also heard from Ruth Lachelte that some students she spoke with had already .decided to atter1d Peru withouf even visiting the campus," he said. An unexpected result of PSC Day, according to Wiezorek, was the interest expressed by PSC alumni located in Omaha in re-establishing that city's chapter of the Thousand Oaks Alumni As.sociation. A dinner meeting to discuss this has been tentatively set for sometime In April, he said.

I extend my warmest congratulations to the entire cast of the musical "Pippin" and to all others involved who worked so hard to make it a huge success. Attendance records were broken, and rightfully so. To those of you who didn't bother to see it, you really missed the boat this time! And you even had an extra chance, as "Pippin" was postponed due to bad weather. ,Outstanding performances by .everyone, including Pam Frost and Rob McKercher highlighted the show. Perhaps the best drama student Peru has -had, senior Rob closed out his college acting career with the lead and did an absolutely fantastic job! Well, Ducky, I guess it's all over but the shouting now. Best wishes to you! The choreography was also excellent, as the cast seemed to slide into their dancing shoes and wiggle the night away. Due to the hard work of Cindy Pursley and Shari Hoelker, as well as to 1he many hours of practice put in by the entire cast, the dancing was well-polished for the most part Set construction, costuming-and music were very good and showed just how much time and effort was spent on them. Lighting by Mic Koso, Joe Waters, MaryAnn Mellor, and Anita Faraboni was magnificent - with the opening scene coming to mind. If as much time and effort are put into the next show, then I urge everyone to see "She Stoops to Conquer", All we have to do is sit back and watch. They do all the work! Again, to all concerned, thanks for working so hard for so long to'make "Pippin" a success -il was. "Pippin" with all its fine acting and singing rates at the top - I give you my grade A++.

Over 40 percent of the students who enroli in American colleges ana universities drop out before receiving a college degree, according to a recent press release from the Campus Digest News. The problem of attrition is not a new one but it is becoming increasingly painful for the schools. Nationwide college enrollments are expected to decline in the · next 20 years due to the decreasing number of college age people - the post World War II baby boom children have all grown up. Administrators dislike losing the large amount of dropouts. For them it means more financial problems. If the colleges were able to cut attrition rates it is feasible that enrollment could be kept level, A report by two Syracuse University researchers reveals the idea that trying to keep students in school rather .than trying to recruit replacements is a better solution to the problem. Making classwork and grading easier is not the answer. Academics is not the primary reason for students dropping out, but rather difficulties in adjusting to college life. Some universities have begun· trying to improve informal contact between students and faculty, which seems to be a major source of dissatisfaction for students. Researchers Patrick T. Terenzini and Ernest T. Pascarella found that faculty are crucial to students' adjustment to college, socially as well as academi-

cally. Their study showed that students who had increased contact with at least one faculty memher were much happier The Syracuse study went so far as to suggest that money be set aside for faculty members to entertain students in their homes, and to develop a reward system for those who do the best job in communicating. The larger universities, logically have more difficulty in maintaining studentfaculty relationships. A University of MissouriColumbia researcher, Greg Fawcett, in l977, wrote that, "Most colleges know very little about why their students withdraw . . . even when records are maintained . . . the reasons for withdrawal are usually summarized as financial, academic, personal and unknown, with the last two being marked most often." Fawcett added that for a student to stay in college there must be two tirings: "You have to have one meaningful professor who cares; second you have got to be a part of a meaningful group and that very well could be and often is, a parttime job." Classwork that overlaps with what. students learned in high school, uninspired teaching and a "we really don't know why we're here" attitude are specific reasons for student alienation in Fawcett's report. It would seem that faculty then hold the key which could unlock attrition problems and help universities and colleges maintain good enrollment levels. ·

As ·a matter of fact they like it, but not in the negative sense that it's being used. The purpose ·of the open house was. to show people the transformation that the Zoo has undergone; to show them that we don't live in dirt and filth. The quality of the characters of the individuals that live here aren't what people are led to believe. The majority of the guys that live here are creative and concerned about the' · place that we live in. One example· of their creativeness is the "New Zoo Review", that the dorm puts out, The Vintage Band and a second floor government." Delzell has really undergone a lot of changes for the better in recent times. The guys seem to take pride in the Hall. "The Zoo" still has a way to go, but help from its residents can restore the . building's historic charm.


Tryouts complete Tryouts for "She Stoops to Conquer", the Peru Players final production of the year, were held March 7th and 8th in the Fine Arts auditorium. Directed by Dr. Charles Harper, the play can best be described as an 18th century comedy. It centers around the antics of young people in and out of mischief and love. Approximately 25 people attended the tryouts and there were many. who had never tried out before.· "She Stoops to Conquer" will be presented in the college auditorium on April 25th through the ~8th.

Library switch almost complete The switch from Dewey Decimal to the Library of Congress system in the PSC library is now over half completed, according to ·Sharon Mccaslin." The project which was started a year ago is expected to be· completed by this September after nearly 11/z years of work. There are presently 12 people involved in the changeover (6 regular staff and 6 additional help who were hired through a CETA grant).

According to Mrs Mccaslin, the reference room is finished and all· books ffom the seven hundreds to nine hundreds have been classified, and we are now starting at the zero's. She believes that the Library of Congress system is a big step up and will benefit all who use the library. · This is the first major cataloging of the library since it has been in operation and thus l}ives personnel a chance to replace lost and damaged cards. It also provides an opportunity for staff to look over all books in our

collection and value their worth. If books are not up to certain standards they are discarded to make room for better books. One machine that has been of great help in the switch is an Ohio College Library Center COCLC) computer system.

·College nurse role changing; coordinates more programs.~ •{'. The days have passed • •• when you went to the school nurse only because you had a cold. Peru State College Nurse Virginia Miller has c.oordinated many programs ; that attempt to reach out to both students and area residents. "Currently the Peru State Health Center holds family planning, well child, mental health and alcohol counseling clinics," said Miller. Dr. David Bass from Blue Valley Mental Health consults Peru students who may ne_ed counseling. "Going away to college is ci:;rtainly an adjustment per-

iod for many students and this situation coupled with the need for independence often causes problems for some students," said Miller. "You don't have to lie crazy to need help," she said. More and more students are using the mental help service for everything from dealing with relationships to learning how to break away from home, she said. Miller is also working closely with the Auburn Chamber of Commerce and the Department of Health, Education and Welfare in an attempt to have a physician on hand at the health center

on a more regular basis. "Recently there is much stress on the need to have proper medical care in rural communities. A physician visiting the health center could help area residents who have health problems as well as students," said Miller. Another health service extra is the well child clinic which allows mothers an opportunity to have their children checked by a doctor even when the child has no medical problem. The emphasis is on preventing problems before they occur, she said.

The Masked Cricket (Tim Alvis) and his manager, Tom Milke, took on the Groundhog better known to all on campus as Jilek Mo1es.

College hand to tour several area sch.ools "We all hear and see bands at sports events, but sometimes we don't always realize that band rnusic in itself can be a source of entertainment," said Dr. David M. Edris, director of the Peru State College Wind Ensemble. With that in mind, Edris and the Peru State Ensemble will soon be touring and performing at several Nebraska communities. "The tour performances allow students an opportunity to perform before a variety of audiences, and gives audiences a chance to hear the broad spectrum of music which bands are capable of performing," said Edris. The Wind Ensemble will first be performing their home concert on Sunday, April 8 at the Peru State College Auditorium. The spring concert will begin at 3:00 p.m.

On tour, the ensemble will perform at Gretna High School on Monday, April 9 at 8:30 a.m. and at Valley High School that afternoon at 2:00 p.m. Then, on Tuesday, April 10 a 10:30 a.m. concert is sched~led at Barneston High School followed by a 2: 00 p.m. concert at Odell High School. Along with classic works bv Beethoven and Tchaikovsky, the Peru State College Wind Ensemble will perform some spirited marches including a military "Knightsbridge March" by Coates. Another major piece written for band musicians is the "First Suite in E Flat" by Gustav Holst and an impressionistic piece called "Japanese Prints" by Robert Jager. "Japanese Prints" involves three distinct views of Japan and suggests the beauty of that country, said Edris,

Spring fever?


When cellist loses his instrument -'it's like losing lover- At least that's what happened to world renowned cellist Paul Tobias who will be performing this summer attheFestivalofaThousand Oaks on the Peru State College campus. The foundation which allowed Tobias to use their Stradivarius recently asked that the 300 _ year ~ old instrument be returned to them. That left a problem for Tobias.

by Beth Propst With the coming of spring (? l and warmer weather (?) students will see panic strike among the faculty, for they are the first to see students overpowered by the sometimes fatal malady known as "Spring Fever". This year, however, due to the confusion of Mother Nature (l think someone ripped off her margarine) a false alarm was sounded and students were bombarded with an outbreak of "testitess", by the over-reacting faculty. "Mom" Nature proved that it's not nice to fool her by playing a cruel April Fool's joke on us - in the form of snow. Most unfortunately this has just given the faculty more time to plan their strategy to combat "the Fever." Term papers, one page essays, pop quizzes, and in-class reports are but a few "remedies" used. Some teachers go so far as to assign reading assignments - out of the textbook, no less!! While faculty see the students as having the prob!ems, it very well may be just the opposite. After all, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

International Food Day will be celebrated April 23rd' as part of "Spring Week:'. Up to this· time not one student or faculty member has signed up to participate. The Ped stated in past issues that the many worlds of Grecian, French, and exotic delicacies will be part of International Food Day. How can we sample all these worldly delicacies if nobody signs up for this day? I'm sure there are many students and faculty members who would like to taste different foods from other parts of the world. The reason for the International Food Day was to give students and faculty members a chance to dress up in their traditional native costumes; cook food from their native land; and serve it to other students and faculty. "It would give the participants a sense or' pride to know that

A re-evaluation of goals and programs will soon take place on the Peru State College campus when educational consultant Dr. StanleyFrame visits on April 9, 10, and 11. Frame, who is a small liberal arts college specialist, will meet with heads of six academic divisions at Peru State to evaluate college programs and to determine ways in which programs may be of greater value to emerging high school graduates. Frame has been a consultant in the areas of institutional planning, program development and evaluation. He has been a consultant for small colleges throughout the country and been execu-

live director of California's Pemberton Foundation. Dr. Clyde Barrett, vice president for academic affairs at Peru State College hopes ·the visit will be an eye - opening experience for faculty and administration. Barrett cited that many times faculty members are too close to a program to evaluate Courses being offered and their relevancy to today"s students. The current educational needs and interests of students are some of the questions which will be discussed and evaluated, said Barrett. Frame will also offer suggestions on additional programs which Peru State may offer, as well as ideas that may strengthen programs to be more relevant with current student career choices.

Majors Hall fund drive has begun Anew fund drive project to purchase Majors Hall at Peru State College had its kick-off .with over 30 area chairpersons 'and fund-· raisers attending a dinner meeting on Tuesday, March 20, on the Peru State campus. Peru State College President Dr. Larry Tangeman addressed the group and explained that Majors Hall, a little used dormitory, is an integral part of Peru State's new physicar education center. That center, now under construction, would have showers, lockers and health center facilities in the adjacent Majors Hall. However, renovation of Majors Hall, using designated state funds, cannot begin until the dormitory is purchased from the bondholders at a cost of $300,000.

"Our goal for the drive is set at $300,000," said Tangeman, who added that the dormitory could play an important part in the educational, cultural and recreational activities of citizens throughout Southeastern Nebraska.

and the new physical education center will allow Peru State College to improve its service to the people of this area," he said. Athletic and intramural activities are high on the list of needs to be served. The new center will include three bll'Sketball courts and an indoor track. Also under construction is a swimming pool. These facilities will enable the college to host a variety of athletic tournaments and intramural activities. In addition, the center and Majors Hall will allow Peru State College an opportunity to schedule physical education and recreation, classes at an improved level, LB 549 instructs Peru State to continue its Well Child Clinic for Southeast Nebraskans, and also provides an appropriation for a health center. Majors Hall would be renovated into a health center once private money has been raised to purchase it from the bond holders. Peru would also be in a· better position to host con.I ferences and to serve as a conference center once Majors Hall has been renovated. The new center with

App()i_~tme~t ~hallenged TO TIIE STUDENT BODY: Last W,ednesday elections were held for Student · Senate officers and senators. There was a tie for Senat9r-at-Large between myself and Tina Gault. In an ·election where a tie results there are three alternatives possible for determining the outcome of the tie. The first possibility is to allow both parties to hold the position. If this is not a conceivable possibility a revote can be held; or, as stipulated in Peru's Student Senate constitution, a politkal committee: from.the Senate can choose between the.tied parties.'.· This alternative is in theory an adequate means of breaking the tie. I say in theory because unless certain factors are present this method becomes a very subjective means of breaking the tie. The factors that must be present are an unbiased committee, knowledge of both persons' qualifications and a means of weighing one person's qualifications against another's. When I ·asked Tim Pethoud how the five member committee chose Tina Gault I was told it was each person's "own preference". It is obvious that the committee was lacking in the essential factors to make this decision since I was never told of their voting or asked for my qualifications. I do not know Tina Gault personally and in no way am questioning her qualifications to serve as a Senator -At- Large. What I am concerned with is the means by which the tie between us was. broken. I feel that a revote is necessary at this time because of my doubts about the committee. Whether the outcome of the revote is the same as the committee decision or not, is unimportant. What is important is that a precedent is set for future ties. It is the Student Senate's responsibility to serve the student body as effectively and fairly as they can. This means taking the time and effort to have a rev9te in the case of a tie or at the very leiist to have an adequately qualified and prepared cor!imittee to choose between the tied parties. · RENEE WRIGHT

EDITORIAL COMMENT: The Army's top personnel officer has informed Congress that a return to the draft is inevitable. According to Lt. Gen. Robert B. Yerks the declining size of the reserve and increasing difficulty recruiting men and women into the active force leave the nation with no other choice. "The only question," says Lt.· Gen. Yerks, "is when.'' Until recently such military views were only expressed off the record but increasing Congressional support for registration and the draft- has had a dramatic effect on the Pentagon's position. As recently as December 28th the official Pentagon position was that the all volunteer armed services were in satisfactory condition. But the changing political climate.has encouraged .military's top officials to reverse their prevlq · " . .

A· brµad based coalition including the American Civil Liberties Union, the Students for a Libertarian Society, and the United States Students Association will be holding an 'informative rally' on the steps of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. at twelve noon on April 30th. The United States Students Association is already distributing buttons calling on youth to "Register to Vote: Don't Vote to Register." The Students for a Libertarian Society has charged that: In the hundreds of pages of Congressional testimony on the draft, not one Representative- either for or against conscription - makes any real effort to justify the global commitmen.ts that make 2.1 million armed services necessary in peacetime. The SLS, a California based organization, is holding· a .s.e.ries. 9£ .n.e:ws conferences in major cities and is

organizing a national resistance movement on college campuses. The Friends Committee on National Legislation has established a Committee Against Registration and Draft which will help coordinate the national lobbying effort in Washington, The Director of the Committee on Militarism in Education charges that our alleged need for more manpower is part of the same 'crackpot realism' that led us into Viet Nam. According to Dr. Robert I. Rhodes, this 'need' rests on a series of dubious premises: If the Russians start a conventional war in Europe; if it doesn't quickly escalate into a nuclear war; if NATO airfields and ports are not destroyed in the opening battles; and if we .can build an enormous naval fleet that does not now exist, then the million men stationed in the United States will be useful in the next war. Since these premises are clearly absurd, Dr. Rhodes believes that the new call for registration and the draft will increase the power of the Pentagon and cold war tensions, and recreate the bitter campus protests that existed in the late '60's and early '70's but will make no positive contribution to our national &ecurity.

Rally against draft to be staged April 30th


Dear Editor: Abrief plea for a response. The race for Senator-atLarge in this year's Student Senate elections ended in a tie. According to constitution the winner was to be chosen by a special committee. Members of this committee did not feel they were quali· fied to make the decision since they knew so little about each of the two candidates. It appears that the rule

forcing the committee, instead of the students, to render a decision was established long ago and was possibly effective then, but has since become outdated. Rules that linger on long past their usefulness can cause more problems than they can solve. I wanted to take the time to point this out to all concerned. Thank you for the privilege Dave Gray

I would like to take this opportunity to ~ongratulate

Joe Primm and Chuck Mittan on their election as Student Senate President and Vice president, respec: tively. Additionally, I would .like to express my sincere appreciation to those who supported Craig Marinosky and me during our candidacy. The competition has ended. It is now time for all of us to work together for the benefit of the PSC student body. I'm certain Craig joins me in pledging total support to Joe and Chuck. BOB DAVIS

Candidates for Student Senate president and vice president fielded questions from fellow students in an open forum held April 11, during convo period in the Bob Inn. · Ou t -g o i n g s e n a t e President Kirk Ochs introduced Craig Martinosky and running mate Bob Davl·s, and Joe Pri·mm and partner. Chuck Mittan, president and vice presidential candidates, respectively. Introductions Were followed by Openl·ng statements and then the question and answer session· began. Martinosky, in his initial comments listed his . priorities ·as: keeping the students well informed as to what the senate was doing for them and to keep an open ear to all who needed his help. Davis sighted more specifically the attendence policyofonefacultymember he felt unfair, the new housing policy; which he urged students to refuse to sign and differences between student and faculty rates for lunch tickets and on-campus housing annajor issues he was concerned with. Mittan in his opening comments for himself and Primm .said they had both enjoyed the past year of work on the senate. He also commented any changes made must be gradual and consistent, not radical. Echoeing this concern Primm said that he felt the campus, the administration

-Gameroom remodeled The gameroom in the Student Center should re-open any time with the remodeling and repainting to be completed soon, according to Patti George, director of student activities. The room has been repainted yellow and tan to replace the circular pattern. There are four eleetronic machines in working order (three of them pinball machines). The foosball, pool and air hockey tables have been revamped and should be in working (!ondition. Ms. George said she Mt that it was aoout time to get the gameroom functional to better serve the students. "Broken down machines and soiled tables are not the way to please PSC students who wish to spend time in the room," she added: Patti would like to remind students that they can purchase T-shirts from the Student Sena_te for $3.50 each and . reminds everyone to hurry because there is a limited number of shirts on hand. Plans for the future include the purchase of a new television for the TV room.

and southeastern Nebraska are very conservative. He said that changes would be made, but slow and easily. Both groups stated that the senate needed to be made more visible to the campus by changing meeting times and places. Student money would be used, according to Primm for an out-foor. concert with a "big time" band. He also said they would try to get more movies and more activities scheduled during theweek. Davis anfaipated no problems in \\'.Orking with the adminisfration and other organizations due to his past experience in the financial aids department and as a residence hall director. Elaborating on the housing contract, Davis felt that students should not have to sign the contract for an entire academic year, as many students become el.igibletoliveoffcampus.ot fmd off-campus housmg between semesters. Mr Davis also stated that he was for lowering the student programs fee (which no\Y stands at $35). He felt that students should be charged individually, as he questioned charging a set rate for all, when some do not attend the activities. After a number of further questions the forum was stopped due to lack of time. Win or lose, both sefs of candidates cited · a willingness to participate with the senate for 'the coming year.

married student housing, Eaton said, was in part because "Pate is nicer for visiting families and for workshop and conference lodging."- He added that the increase in married students requesting campus housing and the need for temparary housing for new .faculty members also contributed to the decision. Clayburn-Mathews, according to Eaton, will not undergo any major changes, but it's doubtful that private rooms will be available there ·because "there are more requests _for ClayburnMathews housing than there are openings." Eaton said it wasn't his - intent to discourage private rooms, but that . most would be located in Morgan and Delzell Halls, where there are rewer requests for housing.

Another dormitory change planned for next fall, Eaton said, is an increase in housing rates. Delzell and Morgan will increase to $301semes ter; Centennial Complex,. $357 semester; furnished one-be.droom apartments in. Nicholas, $142-month, utilities paid (two bedroom, $174); and unfurnished one-bedroom apartments at.Oak Hill, $1(}3monthr -utilities, except electricity paid (twobedroom, $124). Board rates will also be increased,. Eaton said, and PSC will change from ten and 18 meal plans to 15 and 20 plans. He said one reason for the increase in number of meals available was to make it easier for students to stay in Peru over the weekend. Eaton added that the expanded meal plans will cut the student's per-meal cost.

"However, it is recognized that some of our resources are presently being underutilized and .could be made more effective and fully funr.tioning through more intra-inter-unit; participation and .cooperation. In. seeking to improve the existing services to students, we .cannot avoid some costs which. are necessary. If the funds can be made available the following suggestions for changes and additions are proposed:" • - that the Bob Inn remain open every day until 10

While the grill would be shut off at the! closing time,' sandwiches, . soft drinks, .pizzas and microwave items would be available until the 10 p.m. closing. - that the recently remodelled game room also remain open until 10 p.m. Additional equipment has already been installed and a request has been made to PFM Manager Cliff Nail for food machines to be installed. - that a wide screen color TV be purchased and installed in the Fishbowl, and

- that additional work study personnel be made available to orovide security for this expanded operation and for student dances and other campus events. - that unspecified improvements be made on the present campus parking situation. .

changes. The added expense oL expanding -student serthat the Fishbowl be car- vices, he said, must be peted for use as a "TV warranted by increased use room." of these services by students.

Meal plans change to 15 or 20 for next year Changes in the current meal plan will be implemented for the fall semester, according to David Eato.n, Director of Residence Life. There are two meal plans from which a student may choose the 15 meal plan and the 20 meal plan. plan (15) provides.for fifteen meals of your choice and the maxi plan (20) provides for twenty meals. The cost per meal on the 15 meal plan is 30 per cent lower than the 10 meal plan. "With the 10 meal plan you were getting only 2 meals a day and no. meals on the

weekend.. With the 15 meal plan you are getting .three meals a day, but. still no meals on .the weekend. It's costing you 30 per cent less to eat with. the.15 meal plan than it did with the 10 meal plan," said Mr Eaton. The maxi plan provides students with three meals a day Monday - through Saturday and two meals on Sunday. With the 20 meal plan students can receive -two more meals for .iust over one dollar. "The difference between the 20 meal plan and the 18 meal plan is that the 20 meal plan is around $15.00 more, but you're getting 80

meals. In the long run you're coming out cheaper than you did with .the 18 meal plan," Eaton said. According to Mr Eaton, the reason that the change from the 10 and 18 meal plan is because few people can survive on three meals on the weekend, and most · people want three meals a day. "We also have gotten a lot of positive feedback from students, thanking us for changing from the 10 and 18 meal plan, because like I said most students want three meals a day and more food on the weekends," Eaton said.

The rain hampered construction during April, but progress is still being made on the new Sports Complex.

announcements Board Honors Young raises· st"f:ldent fees ~~ editorials by Beth Propst With mixed emotions I approached .my typewriter for the final issue of the Ped. School is finally - already (?) almost over and I can say that this semester has been quite an experience for me. With high hopes and aspirations for the .Ped I began serving my time as editor. Only at times did it feel like I was serving a sentence. Some of the plans - I'd made never did show up on print-no ones fault but mine. But many of them did and with each issue I became a perh11ps bit wiser and less inhibited. I at least got to see my accomplishments and am proud to have been able to.serve my fellow students, facult.v ~nd administration. Granted, as I look back down the road I see many things I would have changed. and done differently. I made mistakes and missed some things that I should not have, and I apologize for those. Yet, through it all I learned alot of valuable information and would not have traded places with anyone. Experience is· definitely the best teacher.

There are many people I would like to thank for all. of t~ir support and guidance. First, and very important thanks to Kent Propst, Becki Young and Mark Johnson. How you put up with all of my ranting and raving I'll never kn~w. Kent, with five years -of journalistic experience was a .. valuable source of advice, both negative and positive. Thanks also to my staff and my advisor Everett Browning. They were ari excellent group to work with. And lo the staff of the Nebraska City News-Press, r am very grateful for your patience and dedicatio:1. Chuck Johnson, Pat Osbon and Ivan Beaumont, thank you for your support. An invaluable staff member who, deserves recognition my photographer Mick Osbon. He -did a. great .job using much of his own time to help out. Finally, I thank you, my readers for your words of advice, comments and criticisms. At least I knew you'd picked up .a copy when

I saw them blowing across campus, in garbage cans and on the floor. <I tend to think of it this way: I kept soine maintenance man from going hungry!) . . It's finally over. Or is it? Congratulations to my successor, Ms.. Debbie Moore. Good luck, and see you in the funnies!

Last Show Successful. Participation Needed "She Stoops to Conquer", a seventeenth century comedy, was performed in the college auditorium April 25 through April 28. Presented by the Peru Players, .this English comedy written by Oliver Goldsmith, marked their last show of this year. The cast included 19 PSC students and were selected on a tryout basis last month.

The show was directed by Dr. Charles Harper. Joe Waters, sophomore from Bellevue, was the assistant director and stage manager as well asappearing on stage in two minor roles. The elaborate set was. the cumulative.effort of the cast and production crew and took.six weeks to complete. The costumes were designed by Dr. R-0yal Eckert.

Spring Fever Cure? Spring fever is a notorious tempter of students to cut classes and enjoy warm spring weather under. the "thousand oaks." At least one PSC instructor, however, thinks he has a possible cure for this dread "disease." Several weeks ago, journalism instructor Everett Browning had advanced journalism students write "gel well" notes for two absent· classmates. Ac:cr1rdir.g lo one student in c!:.'.ss, the notes exsympathy ._for lhe suident and the hope thal he

or she would "recover" sufficiently to attend the next class session. The "cure". was .initially only 50 percent successful, Browning said, because only one of the two absent students returned to class after receiving the notes. A second set of notes, however, finally prompted the remaining reluctant student to return to class, Browning said: the notes included a mock obituary about the truant student and a dramatized expose of the class's attempt to lure the student to class.

to insure. Activities PSC Residence Life Director Dave Eaton would like to see more activities programmed for · weekends next fall, but says it may be impossible due to low student participation in such activities. One way - to discourage PSC's "suitcase college" image, ~aton- said, is. to schedule dances, .movies, and. ·oth!fr activities .on weekends rather than during the week. But to justify -the expense of such activities they .must be scheduled during. the week, when the majority of students are on campus, he said. Patti George, coordinator . of student activities, said she has tentative plans for some weekend activities during the 1979-80 school year, .but that she is especially concerned with programming more informally organized activities for students who can't leave Peru on weekends.

Tree committee meets plans 'for arboretum Members of the Peru State College Committee met with officials from the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum to discuss plans for the College's inclusion to the arboretum system.

Kent Propst and Mic Osbon can be seen broadcasting their "No Disco Show" which is aired on Mondays. These two are a few of the many JD's who have been on the air for · radio station KSPC.

Ur. Joe Young, Nebraska Statewide Arboretum curator said that Peru State will be discussed al the Arboretum board meeting in May. "Peru State College seems an ideal site for an arboretum since it has the warmest .climate of any of the sites in Nebraska," said Young. That means a wider variety of trees can grow in this area. .Young also said the expanding pursuits of the statewide. system call for mor.e educational resources which are readily available on the Peru State campus. Currently -there are 12 approved sites and an additional six more sites under consideration by the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum board. The Peru -State College Tree Committee composed of artspersons, . groundskeepers and administrators recently planted a red oak tree for Arbor Day. And at commencement this spring, the committee will plant trees in honor of distinguished alumni.

LB304 may help PSC recruitment LB304 could be just the thing to solve PSC athletic . recruiting problems, according to Athletic Director Jerry Joy, but its legislative progress has been slow. It is presently on general file with the Legislature - out of committee but waiting in the line-up of legislation t 1 be debated. LB304 would allow the Stale College Board of Tr.ustees and University Board of Regents to set requirements for Nebraska residency and establish more than one level of nonresident tuition. Many university · officials have indicated their support of the proposed bill, and Coach Joy agrees with them that it is very necessary. to pass LB304. "If that bill were passed," he said, "I don't know any state college which would benefit more than Peru." Joy said the fact that Nebraska has a lower population than the states surrounding it made the bill necessary so Nebraska colleges could attract students from those states. Residency requirements set by the board of trustees could also aid PSC athletic recruitment, he said. Special non - resident tuition rates

could be used in addition to a limited scholarship fund in attracting prospective students. Several athletes currently receive double tuition waivers which could be distributed among other students if special non-resident tuition was established, he said. "I think it's a good deal," Joy said in reference to LB304. "It will help us get more athletes and will increase our enrollment. "I think the state will be moving backward if they don't pass it," Joy said. PSC President Larry Tangeman agreed with Joy that LB304 would be very good for Peru, but said that even if the bill passed,· there was no guarantee that the board of trustees would use their power to set resldency requirements and special non-resident tuition.

Whip Wilson, one of the leading hitters for the softball team, displays her batting ability.

Bohkittens Victory shuts out opponents The Peru State softball team advanced its record to 6-4 with two wins Saturday, April 21. The Bobkittens whipped host Nebraska Wesleyan 7-0 and then bombed a fine Chadron State team 17-0 in Lincoln. . Rhonda Wright, pitched a no-hitter in the 7-0 win over Wesleyan. Wright threw one strikeout and did not walk a single NWU batter in the game while earning her first win of the season. · Elizabeth Walsh, raised her record to 4-1 with a onehitter in the 17-0 route of Chadron. Walsh has allowed only 21 hits over 35 innings this season and has gone the entire seven innings in all five outings. .Laura, Pollman, was the big batter in the first game

with three as many atbats. She finished the day with four hits in eight attempts with three RBI's. Her batting average rose to .375. Whip Wilson, had three hits in seven at-bats on the day. She stole three bases, scored five runs and drive home three RBl's. Wilson is batting .514 on the year. Deb Craig, had a big day with three hits in 10 attempts, four runs scored, four RBI'sand a perfect day fielding with 23 put-outs. Fran Calanni, had a good day batting against the Eagles. She .had- two hits including a triple in four atbats, scored two runs and drive in a run and stole two bases. She has a .406 batting average.

1979 Cheerleaders Chosen Six new cheerleaders were selected last week for the 1979-80 football season. The new cheerleaders are: Susan LaMountain, freshman from Omaha. Lori Study, freshman ' ·from Palmyra· Kim Grinstead · ' ' freshman from Papillion; Denice Dominic, freshman

°from Bellevue; Rita Adams, freshman from Omaha; Sandy Grate, freshman from Omaha. · . . · The Judges.were Dr. David E~ris, music departr:ient; Miss Hoelker; Joe Primm, Student Senate President and Kent Propst, Sports Information Director.

The academie1year 1978-79 has proved to be one .of the finest years in athletics for Peru State. A· nun1ber . of record-setting performances were turned in, fans and coaches alike, are looking forward to next year in eager anticipation. · The football team registered its first winning season since 1962, finishing 53-2. The season was highlighted by the performance of freshman Alvin Holder, who rushed for a school-record .1,145 yards. Holder, offensive lineman Bob. Hruby and defensive back - Ken Denning, all earned honorable mention All-American honors. . The volleyball team finished the season . with another winning record. Coach Pat Gilbert's young squad will miss the play of Danelle Warner, . Julie Hartman, Joni Albin and Desi Kline, but will have excellent talent returning when the season opens this fall. . The Bobcat basketball team faced a rugged schedule under a new coach along with a small team. The result was a 6-23 season, but senior guard Dan Shouse rewrote the Peru record books enroute to. earning honorable mention AllAmerican honors. Shouse, witlt a 28.5 scoring average, and Bernie Hajny were chosen to represent the Nebraska College Conference in the NAIA's firstever All-Star game. The women's basketball team began the seas.on without a coach. The ensuing 4-17 record was largely due to the rough early start without a coach. The squad lost seniors Julie Hartman and Debbie Craig and should field a fine team. Freshman

Jackie Nixon has the talent to be great before she leaves. Thus far both the baseball and softball teams are doing well. The baseballers are working lo .keep their record above .500 and feature nationally ranked hitters in Mark Johnson, Steve Medinger and Greg Sanders. The softballers have proved they have talent, but inconsistency .and a rash of weather-cancelled . games have kept their record at .500. The _ track teams have produced their share of highlights, also. Freshman Keith McKim is the new owner of the .school .highjump record, and is going to be a fine competitor over the next few years. Likewise, Karen Mostrom is a talented freshman (she already has earned three letters) who set the women's high jump

record. Big losses to the women's team will be felt by the departure of throwers Barb Rolf and Desi Kline. · To all the athletes at Peru State, thank. you for an entertaining year. Congratulations to all, and let's make next year even better.

. (l would like to take this lime to give a personal thanks to the following people for their help 1throughout the season: Coaches Squires, Gilbert, Pitts, Gorney, Hoelker, Gilliland, and especially Jerry Joy, Athletic Director).

Weight trainhg program prepares football team Around 40 men are .involved in a weight training program to prepare themselves for the 1979 football season. Coach Jerry Joy says !hat the players are working hard and enthusiasm shown·· by all is excellenL According to Coach Joy, approximately 15 incoming students have signed up to play for Peru next season. Area players . who have • already committed !hemselves and the high schools

they attended include: Jeff Johnson ~ Pawnee City; Bob Auxier - DawsonVerdon; Mitch Eggers, Doug Minchow, and Bob Winters - .Waverly; Dan King Lincoln Northeast; Brad Oliver - Falls City Sacred Heart; and Keith Everett Omaha. Coach Joy believes . the Bobcats will be competitive next fall and is anxious for football season to once again roll around at P.S.C.

Bobcats win 3; lose 3 The Peru . State baseball team recorded three wins and as many losses during action last week. _Wayne State took two wins in Peru, the Bobcats earned a. split with Doane, and Tarkio fell twice-to leave Peru with an 811 record. The . Bobcats hosted Concordia on May 1 for .the season home finale. Seniors Don Hardekopf and Greg Sanders put in their final appearance before a Peru crowd. ·'

April 23. The Wayne.batters had a field day against the Peru Pitchers, pounding out 19. extra-base hits. The Wildcat pitchers were able to keep the usually-potent Peru bats at bay. The following day Peru travelled to Crete. The Bobcats took the opener 8-5 but were downed by the hosts 18-13- in the error-filled nightcap. Tarkio College lost its third and fourth games of the season against Peru to leave Wayne State took a pair of the Owl record at 0-6. Peru easy wins, 10-3 and 22-5 on won the first game by .13-5

and held on for the second win,9-'Z. Mark Johnson, junior first baseman continues as the leading hitter for Peru. Johnson, who is among the top hitters in the NAIA, is carrying a .453 batting average. He also_ has -10 doubles to his credit, which ranks as one of the national highs. Steve Medinger, is among the national leaders also. Medinger is batting .362 and has io home runs and 41 RBI's. Greg Sanders, is batting .385 and has 9home runs

Peru track season ends Peru . State track performances have steadily improved throughout the 1979 track season. The women's team has com-, pleted its schedule while the men will compete at the Doane Relays in Crete May 5.

Coaeh Erv Pitts' men's squad fared well at the Central Missouri State Invitational April 24.. Keith McKim,. looked particularly impressive as he placed ip three events, ·while Mike Bird, has "tremendous potential" in the dis.cus according to Coach Pitts. McKim earned fifth place in the 110-meter high hurdles despite the fact that it was only the third time this year he has competed in that event. McKim took fifth in




the high jump with a leap of 6'2, and was part of the .400meter relay team that earned fifth place. Other relay members were Alvin Holder, Tampa, Fla; Curtis Pruitt, Omaha; and Norm Parrish, Homewood, Ill. Bill Sell, a hard-working junior who graduated from Nebraska City High and now lives in Nemaha, placed fourth in the 1500-meter run. Sell was clocked in a fine 4:05.7. Bird threw the discus 142'8 for · fourth place, but Pitts believes Bird capable of throwing 3Q feet further if he continues to work hard.
