THE PEDAGOG IAN
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. According. to Georg.e, extensive weekend
