Peru State College Director of Finaµcial Aid Don Miller says that work-study funds for students this year are much like last year. Miller said that work-study funds have been allocated to students for the 1982~1983 year. U.S. Congressman Doug Bereuter reported in July that all Federal student aid was frozen at the 1982 level, but Miller said that the picture is brighter than first anticipated. As the costs of education sky-rocket across the state and the nation, Miller points out that Peru State College is still a bargain for those who are seeking a college education. Figures released by the Action Committee for Higher Education in Washington, D.C., show that this fall tuition at colleges and universities will rise an average of 12 per cent. At private four-year colleges, total tuition, fees and room and board will be about $7,500. At public universities costs are about $4,700 and a..t Peru State a student will need to plan on about $3,000 this '82-'83 year, as an average figure, according to Dr. Jerry Gallentine, president of PSC, for room, bo;;ird, tuition

For the Record Before I get started, I would like to joiri._ the Editor in welcoming ·back all of the returning students and faculty as well as this year's incoming freshmen. Gook luck during the 1982-83 school ;1ear at PSC! Now I know that I shouldn't start off the new year by talking about -something negative right away, but this is something tha'.t has bothered me ever since I have known Peru State College. The problem is that we probably have the worst press box facilities in the NAIA. The place is horrible. . First of all, it is not situated in the middle of the field. The middle of the box is even with the 30-yard line, making it almost next to impossible to figure out what yard 1line the ball

last Saturday night. There is nothing in there to keep them is on down at the other end of the out, and lean hardly wait until the temperatures get down into field. Second, there ·is not enough the 40's and 50's. room for all of the stat crew Just think, we almost qualified members to sit. Also, at last for the NAIA playoffs two years Saturday night's game, the ago and again last year; If we coaches and cameramen had to had hosted a playoff game, the sit on top of the press box t<f do o.ther team would have laughed their job. What .would have us off of our own field before the happened if it had rained? game even started! Maybe the Oak Bowl press There is also rather inadequate phone outlets for visiting radio boxes were adequate enough for the days when they were built, stations. The Hastings station, but this is the 1980s. We need a KHAS, had to use one of our press box to match the times. phones to broadcast the game Some of you may not agree last Saturday. Press box space is being taken with what- I have written. But up by the concession stand next this is the way I feel and I know many people who work there feel to it. The concession stand should be relocated up the hill a this way as well. And if you don't believe me, little, away from the bleachers. Also, the .bugs and other· please come to ·our next home insects were almost unbearable . game and find ·out for yourself.

Randy Gottula and Tom Osborne of-KAUB-FM radio are announcing the play-by-play of all Peru State ·football games this season. This is KAUB's first season covering Peru football. The Auburn station covered nine Bobcat basketball games last season. KAUB will, carry the Jerry Joy show at 7 p.m. every. Friday. They will also broadcast daily reports from the sports information department.

Coach Jerry Joy's Peru State Bobcats hopeto put together two consistant halves in tomorrow night's 14th annual Applejack Bowl against Tarkio College in Nebraska City. The Bobcats hope to improve on last week's 35-19 loss to the Hastings Broncos at the Oak Bowl. Hastings broke out in the first half with a 21-point first half, beginning with a 9-yard run by running back John Wroblewski on the. opening drive. The Broncos went ahead 14-0 when Jeff Branting received a 23-yard pass from Quarterback Ron Pochop. After the Bobcat offense stalled, Pochop capped a second quarter drive as he ran the ball across from 8 yards out;-making the score 21-0 at the intermission. After the break, Peru State received the second half kickoff but was unable to move the ball. Wasting little time, the Broncos scored again when Pochop threw 23 yards to Flanker Tony Oc~1sner.

After each team traded possessions, Nose guard Todd Ross set up the Bobcats' first score when he intercepted· a Pochop pass on the Hastings 20 yard line and returned it to the 16. Peru scored six plays later on


a 2-yard run by running back Dayid Pasley at 1:17 of the third period. The conversion attempt failed on a bad snap, leaving the score 27-6 with one quarter left to play. · In the 4th quarter;·. the Bobcats' defense bega)l to stiffen, most noteably in the defensive line. ·The 'Cats scored on 'their next drive, capped by.a 1-yard drive by Junior signalcaller Mark Sievers. Rex Freeburg's conversi9n made the score 27-13, Broncos. After a Peru State onside kick failed, the defense rose to the occasion once again, stopping the Broncos in three plays. On the following series, the Bobcats marched down the field to score on Siever's second one yard run of the ball game. After failing to convert the 2 pt. attempt, the score read 27-19. With the momentum changing to the defense, Peru held the Hastings offense in check, giving the Bobcats one more chance to tie the score. But as luck would have it, after . driving to the Bronc's 16 yd. line, a bad center snap caused a costly turnover, leaving just 2:30 left on the clock. A 52-yard run by Tony Ochsner iced the game, with the final stariding at 35-19.

and Letter to the Editor


Dear Editor, I.have noticed a small problem for quite son;ie time now, and though it's not earth shaking, it is a problem to be looked into .. I have walked the campus an uncountable number of times, and when at night, if a person wants to reach Delzell either coming or going, or just anywhere, he usually passes by the college auditorium. The lighting, or lack of it, provides almost nothing in which to walk by. The walk has a row of hedges on each. side and a numerous number of trees bordering it. Very little· light shines on the path, which can be intimidating if a person is alone at night. I propose that a light pole or a' light be. attached on the southeast corner of the auditor-

Peru State College has had a poiicy related to satisfactory progress and academic standing since 1977: The current PSC policy related to academic standing states that PSC will adhere to th~ college ~ademic standards which means that any student who is academically permitted to attend PSC will be provided financial aid. The bill which is in Congress would require a student to maintain a "C" average in order to be eligible to receive financial assistance throughtheFederally sponsored programs.

and Letter to the Editor More· and more people are joining the National Guards in the 80's. They are finding it helpful to pay for college and to assist in special areas of study. The tfine spent is minimal and the work is challenging. The pay and benefits are good, and the experience itselL is fun and . socially pleasant. I joined the National Guards April 3, 1982 because I needed money for college. I'm writing this because I think it's important to let people know what a great advantage the Guards can be to your education. This is n«?t to persuade you to join in any way, only to let you know a little about the g\Uirds .and how they can help. I needed an education and turned .to the Guards for help. Not only will they train me in a specialized field, but they will pay 75 per cent of my tuition to any state supported college or technical school. · There are two basic parts included in an education through the Guards: Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training, or 1\.IT. Basics is routinely set exercises ·of assistance and protection if in a warfare situation. I learned to fight and protect myself as well as others under enemy attack. One great advantage about basics is that it only lasts about nine weeks and you can take it any time you like so it won't interfere. with your education. AIT is your choice of specialized schooling. There are

many to choose .ranging from cooking to mechanics, and communications to airborne training. Both basics and AIT ax:e physically challenging but are not excessively so. I am also getting paid approximately $500 to $600 dollars a month, depending on rank. There will be bonus·pay of $1,500 to. $2,000 dollars in installments presented ··to me after completion of my AIT. Believe me, both the good · physical condition and the • money you get can be of great help to an education. Money and physical training are not · all the Guards offer towards my education. It also broadens. my socialability by meeting new people and seeing how they live. their lives. It · helped me to learn more about myself and build my self-confidence and esteem. I was taught how to discipline myself, think .. positive and participate. All of these things will benefit an education in different ways. After basics and AIT I am only required to go to a meeting once. a month and two weeks of camp every summer. I'm getting paid, $75 for ·each weekend, and $300 dollars for summer camp. (These wages vary according to your rank.)

For the Record

By Don Strecker If you have the time and want to make those few sacrifices, the Now that the National Football Guards could be a great advantage to your education. It League ·Players' Union and the was to mine. Sincerely, Wendy • NFL owners have decided to show everyone that their Meyer. baseball counterparts aren't the only idiots running around, let's se.e how exciting Sunday afternoons have become. For instance, last Sunday we could have watched some tough NFL matchups, featuring Pittsburgh vs~ Denver, and the New York Giants :vs. Dallas. What'we got instead wa!) the actionTHANK·YOU packed college f.ootball game between Wittenberg and Baldwin~Wallace (sounds like some kind of1aw firm). FORCARING · The second game was just as pressure-packed as the highly respected University of San Diego (Chickens?> played OcAnit~ric.·a1i- Ht"<I Cn~NX cidental University ·(don't ask GIVE BLOOD me where the !+&!+it's at).


If those games aren't . your style, tl\ere was also Canadian football with .12 men on a side, three downs to get a first down, and a field that is about a mile

and a half long (actually, it's only 160 yards long, counting the 25 yard end zones) . Now, I don't mind Canadian football. As a matter of fact; I like it mainly because it is so wide open and high scoring. But if I had a choice between the Oakland, er, Los Angeles Raiders and the Saskatchewan Roughriders, I'd take the Raiders any 'day. ·. Personally; I think the. NFL strike is stupid. Both sides are supposed ,to be headed by groWn men, not little kids who call people names when they don't get their way. · The football strike is; causing so much headache that it's not even funny. The cities with NFL franchises are losing millions of dollars every week that the games are not played. The league has lost 14 games "" so far to the strike. Seven more games are set to go doWn the tubes this weekend unless .the players'union and the owners can agree on something. . Greed, .that's all it is. Two sides that wantas much as they can get without giving anything in return. I thought that maybe the two sides learned something by watching the baseball players make fools of themselves (On second thought, the NFL players are doing such a good job of making fools of themselves,

maybe they did learn something). And we, the fan, suffer the most. We have to sit at home and watch the Baldwin-Wallace Nonames and the Wittenberg Strangers pound on each other for a while. I mean, who cares? So, here's hoping that the NFL strike will• be settled by next weekend so that t.he pro season can b.e ·resumed.

.Bobcats Face No. 7 Northwestern For the second straight week, the Peru State Bobcats will play one of the top rated teams in the NAIA when they travel to Orange City, la., on Saturday, Oct. .9, to face the' seventh-rated Northwestern College Red Raiders.· Peru lost to 12th ·rated Benedictine, 45-14, last Saturday. After Northwestern, Peru will play 10th rated Chadron State in Peru on Oct. 16. "This is one of the toughest schedules we have ever had," Peru Coach Jerry Joy said. "Concordia, Benedictine, Northwestern, and Chadron are all capable of finishing in the top ten this year." Peru lost to the Concordia Bulldogs, 21-9, on Sept. 26. "I think we are capable of beating both Northwestern and Chadron if we start executing well and stop turning the ball over so much," Joy said after the disappointing Homecoming loss to Benedictine. Peru led for most of the first half against Benedictine before Raven kicker Terry Armer set an Oak Bowl record with a 53 yard field goal to give his team a 15-14 half-time lead. "That field goal changed the game; it gave them the

momentum going into the second half," Joy said. Peru was never in the game in the second half, turning the ball over six times and losing a total of five yards in total offense. Fiv&. of the Six turnovers were inside the Bobcat 29-yard 1ine, three inside the five. . "These turnovf:!rs really killed us, we never got our defense off the field," said Nick Petrillo, Peru's defensive coordinator. "We are a young team and we're making the mistakes you expect an°inexperienced team to make," Joy said, "We need to mature and get more leadership out of our younger players." · The Bobcats are ind~d young. Joy started only two seniors against the Ravens, offensive tackle Mitch Egger and center Dan King, Egger is a four-year starter, King a three-year starter. "I'm pleased with Mitch and Dan's play; Mitch is probably the only four year starter we've ever had in the offensive line," said Dennis Obermeyer, offensive line coach. "Our defensive backs can't afford to make a mistake against Northwestern," Petrillo said, "We're asking a lot of the young guys back there but I

think they are talented enough to do it." · Three of the four starters in the defensive backfield are freshmen; junior satiety and co-captain Neil Wolfe is the only defender who had any collegiate experience before this season. Freshman Fred Lee, Pat Mertens, John Register, and Mike ..Monroe are improving with each game but still lack the valuable experience that comes with age. A loss at Northwestern this weekend would give Joy his first. losing season since 1976, his second season at Peru. The last time Peru lost to Benedictine was 1976. The last time a Peru team lost its first f6ur games was 1971. "I do think we have a good team and there is plenty of time left to surprise some people," Joy said. Doug Minchow, freshman linebacker from Wq..verly, set a team high for. the season with 16 total tackles against the Ravens. Minchow, who leads the team with 48 to'tal tackles for' the season, had seven unassisted and nine assisted tackles against Benedictine. Peru's next home game is . against Chadron on Oct. 16.

Bobcats Look for Revenge The Peru State Bobcats will try to avenge one of their two losses from a year ago tomorrow afternoon as they host the Chadron State College 'Eagles. Chadron brings a 5-1 record to the Oak Bowl tomorrow along with a 19th ranking in the NAIA ratings. The Eagles tout a stiff defense which allowed only 3 points in their first 4 contests. db~Ett J'etry .JtWs troiltJS will try, to rebound after being embarrassed by the Red Raiders of Northwestern, 62-17. The Bobcats struggled throughout the Northwestern game, which was played in Orarige City, Iowa. The Red Raiders scored two touchdowns and had a 12-0 lead before the Bobcats ran their first play from scrimmage. P.eru State was plagued by tu,rnovers throughout the ballgame, fumbling the football three times and throwing four interceptions.

There were some bright spots in the otherwise bleak picture. The 'Cats rushed for 206 yards on 58 attempts during the afternoon. Rex Freeburg kicked a 49-yard to set a new Peru State College record. The old record 'was set by Jeff Frields who kicked a 48-yarder against Kansas Wesleyan. •· Sophomore running back Jeff George scored both of the Bobcat touchdowns. George scored from a yard out in the third quarter for PSC's first points of the game and hit paydirt again in the fourth from 3 yards away. The Bobcats biggest problem came through the air, where Peru's quarterbacks were only able to complete 2 out of 15 passes for a mere 18·yards. Meanwhile, Northwestern completed 21 out of 31 passes for 291 yards and 4 touchdowns. The

nations' 4th rated passer Lee McKinstry, was 12 for 16 f~r 179 yards despite only playing the first half. The Bobcats were plagued most of the afternoon by a very muddy field, whi<;.h made the footing extremely treacherous. Chadron State is led by Coach Gary Richards9n, who . is ,beginning his first year as the Eagles' mentor. Ri~hardson replaced Jerry Welch, who returned to Arkansas and the high school ranks, The offense is led by Scott Wickard, considered to be one of the best quarterbacks in the state. Wickard went into the year having thrown for 3,5,89 yards in this first three seasons. The Bobcats go into the game with .two running backs who have rushed for more than 200 yards this year. Jeff George has ran for 252 yards while Wilbert L-ock has rushed for 223.

By Vince Henzel Every editor goes through a time when he will "catch a little hell" from someone. It can be in the way he does his job, or in what he says. I ran into some by accident, or should I say by sticking my foot into my mouth at the wrong time. While eating supper one night, not paying attention to what I was saying, I made an ill-advised statement about the Student Senate. A member of that group was sitfutg across the table one chair down. He didn't take kindly to what I said. Word got quickly to the Senate President, and before the evenirig had concluded, he and I had a long discussion about ·the activities they are working on. I realize what an important group the senate is and that they are trying to improve their image. He felt, and I was in total agreement, that they were not ·.getting fair coverage. A lack of communication has taken place somewhere. Who.'s fault that is we really didn't come to an answer, but some things need· to be pointed out: (1) the student has not had the reputation like that of other small or state colleges. (2) most or nearly all the students don't attend the meetings, (3) participation in the senate activities hasn't been .as good as it could be. (4) what coverage they have received has *- J.. •- -





All of these factors have lead up to the point that we now stand. What can be done to break the communication· barrier between the PED and the senate, or any other groups for that matter. From the stand.point of the senate, a few things must be considered: (1) can the college operate efficiently on just one .photographer. The · senate has investigated the possibility of hiring their· own photographer. (2) -should · a member of the PED staff be assigned the specific:. duties of going to the meetings to be a correspondent. (3) does the senate need work-study students to aid them in publicizing their activities. The senate president and I continued our discussion and agreed that both sides- are very busy and are doing the best they can. Maybe some type of format can be established between these two groups,. that will help others as well. I was reminded of a few things by all o( this. What we put out will be as good as the. ·effort we put into it, which applies to all things, whether it be the PED, sports, or grades. We should expect criticism in anything we do, because someone will always think that he knows how· it should be done. •But I think I will remember most is to watch what !'.m sayi?g, ~~~in front of whom

Lady Cats to Trav~I to NWMSU The Lady Bobcat volleyball team travels to Maryville, Mo., to play in the Northwest Missouri State University invitational volleyball tournament this weekend. "There are some really strong teams in this tournament," Coach Maxine Mehus said, "Some of the toughest competition we face all season will be in this tourney." Mehus hopes the team can break out of its recent slump and turn things around in the tournament in Maryville. The Lady Bobcats' record dropped below .500 for the season after a disasterous 0-7-1 stretch the past two weeks. "I don't really know what happened to us," the coach said of the slump, "We just got behind in a few matches and never really got going."

One bright spot for the team was toe return of Jackie Schultz. The Tecumseh junior had been sidelined for three weeks with a severely sprained ankle. "I'd say Jackie is just about at full strength," Mebus said. "Glevon Covault has played .well recently," Mebus said. The Table Rock junior is the team leader in serving effidency percentage. Mebus lauded the play of co-captains Robin Smith and Carla Frauen. "Robin and Carla,,.. have been two of our most consistent .Players this season," Mebus said. The coach hopes that Frauen, who injured her hand in the match with Kearney will be at full strength for th~ Northwest tourney. "We're a young team and we're making the mistakes you expect young teams to make, bu~

we have been improving and maturing throughout the season," the coach said. Mehus said she is pleased with the development of freshmen Kelly Roll, Bonnie Mick, Tammy Lutzi, and Michelle Workman. "Those four ladies have come in and really helped the team. It hasn't taken them long to learn our system," Mehus said. Mehus also said that junior college transfer Missy Trujillo has been playing well recently. Trujilh> is second on the team in assists. "I'm pleased that so many people are contributing • this season; everyone has helped the team this season," Mebus said. The last home match of the season is Tuesday, Oct. 26 against Highland Community College. '

For_ The Record by Don Strecker There have been many times that I have hj:!ard someone complain about the cafeteria. Either the food is terrible or there is no variety or there is this or there isn't that. But it was always something. Let me correct that statement. I used to try to defend the cafeteria. But after what happened- this past weekend, forget it. For those of you who were not here this past weekend or have not heard yet, the cafeteria was closed. And not just Thursday and Friday, either. We're talking the whole weekend I suppose it wouldn't be so bad for those who went home or who ljve close enough to Peru that they could go home. But what about the people from other states, such as Florida or Illinois? What about the people who live in western Nebraska? What were they supposed to do, go without eating for four days? I tried to defend the cafeteria and the people who work in it. I can imagine how tough it is to cook for .all of those people and still have quality and variety. The students of this school pay good money to ec:tt in the

cafeteria. So why did they decide to close it for four days? Who knows! · And while I'm on the subject of the cafeteria, there is another thing that bothers me. Everyone who eats there knows how they show you whaf is on the menu with sample plates. There is usually two or three plates setting there, each one showing a different dish that is being served at that meal. Each dish is covered with plastic wrap. ·

Crime: Is It· a Problem? by Vince Henzel

In a town the size of Peru, one tends to live life free and easy, right?!? Well I used to think that, but I am slowly beginnfng to re-evaluate my views. You would think that in Peru, NE., the crime rate would be nothing to worry about right? Well if that's the only vi~w you have, you might want to reconsider. Just recently, a Well, do you know what they - small lash of stolen items left three people without a valuable do with that food when they are amount of merchandise. One done showing everyone? They victim had some equipment throw it away! Now .isn't that stolen from a car with an almost wonderful. There are people break-proof lock system, yet the starving in other countires, thieves managed to get in. people who would do anything There have been numerous for a taste of that food. And food other incidents this year. One is getting thrown away! night while filling my car with

gas, I heard three people (who when a new pair of $45 gym shall remain nameless) try to shoes were removed conceal something that they locked locker. didn't want anyone else to know about, especially the law _ I don't know how bad this enforcement agency. Now trying to act like I wasn't listening, I ·:·.problem is at other campuses our size, but the image of Peru over heard most of what was being a beautiful campus with going on. I began to realize that friendly people will begin to you have to look out for your own degrade if this sort of thing best interest. continues. I find myself always taking my car keys, locking my room and car door, never carrying a large sum of money, or leaving things lie where people could snatch them. I can relate to the victims of this last week or two, because I too was the victim last year

So what can be done you say? Well for starters, be cautious at all times, even if there isn't a threalaround. Make sure that if someone wants to steal something valuable of yours, you are as prepared as possible. There'.s no place for crime or vandalism and your awareness might help to prevent it.

For some of you, I guess this doesn't sound very bad, mainly because all of us have thrown food away before. But if you watch a segment from the evening news of world hunger with graphic pictures and then go over to the cafeteria and see this happen, it sticks in your mind for awhile. So .the next time you want to -bad mouth the PSC._cafeteria, be my guest.

Letter to the Editor There have been many times that I have been on this campus on or before a weekend, or a holiday weekend and either starved or to that undesirable point. I think this is really ridiculous to have the cafeteria· or the Bob Inn closed for those days, however many there might be. What about the people that you willingly recruited from all over the United States? When I say the United States I'm talking about people from Tampa, Florida, Chicago, Illinois and Western Nebrnska. If I am correct, (and I know I am), we

did not sign a contract telling us that the cafeterias will be closed on the holidays. It seems to me that this college is way off the course of being organized. I would like to also mention that the library is. open on the holiday weekend, but the cafeteria isn't. What are we going to eat, books? The cafeteria workers might think we should but I don't think that's very appetizing. This is the second offense about the cafeteria to my knowledge. I have always been told that the third time's a

charm. I would like to mention -one more thing. They say we can't use a,ny hot plates, toasters, or toaster ovens, how are we going to survive the weekends and holidays at Peru State College. Do we rcib a bank to get the money& or do we starve? Signed yours turly, Kelly J. Clemmons, Delzell Hall No. 106. P .S. Attention Mr. Mark -Larsen, I don't know if you ever had to be in this type of situation, but just picture yourself in our shoes. Just what would you do?

Lady Cats Prepare for District 11 Tour.nam.ent The PSC Volleyball team enters district tournament play today and tomorrow with a regular season record of 16 wins, 24 losses, and two ties. At one time the Lady 'Cats were 12cl0-1 but have suffered through rough going, having lost 14 out of their last 19 games. Statistically, of the three schools who sent in district stats, Glevon Covault leads District 11 in serving with a .978 per cent serving efficiency, successful on 225 of 230 serves. Missy Trujillo ranks third at .974, completing 187 of 192 serves. Robin Smith leads the district in ace serves with 55, Carla Frauen is second with 53, and

Rhonda Buethe ranks fifth with 29. Carla Frauen ranks in four catagories this w~ek, second in aces, fourth in blocks with 44, fourth in assists with 282, and sixth in serve receptions with a .867 per cent. Tammy Lutzi is fourth in receptions with 122 of 137 for .891 per cent. Barb Peterson ranks third in kill efficiency with 111 of 203 for .366 per cent. Robin Smith is third in the distriet in digs with 292 or 2.7 per game and Glevon Covault is sixth at 1.7 digs per game. The volleyball team competed in the conference tourney slated for Tuesday at Kearney.

PSC Roundball Outlook Coach John Gibbs isn't saying a whole lot on how his 1982-83 basketball team might do, but Peru's second year coach knows that a lot of potential and some high expectancies are being labeled on this year's squad. After guiding the Bobcats to a 12-15 recordlast year, Gibbs has eight returning letter-winners, led by senior tri-captain Everett Smith. The 6-3 swingman Jed the team in scoring, averaging 14.3 ppg and 5.9 rebounds, while gaining second team District 11 honors. Also returning in the backcourt will be David Miller, a 5-10 senior point guard who averaged 3.9 ppg. The front line boasts the return of Kip Allison and Morris Liesemeyer. Allison, a 6-9 senior, averaged 7.0 ppg but led the team in rebounding averaging 6.1 rebounds. Liesemeyer, a 6-5 junior, will join Allison in strengthening the Bobcats front line. Liesemeyer finished third in scoring in 81-82 at 10.0 ppg and third in rebounds at 5.1 per game. Vying for the other starting spots will be: Brian Strother, a 6-3 junior, Thom Johnson, a 6-3 senior who started 27 games his sophomore year,

6-6 sophomore John Lepper, a part-time starter last year, and Brett Nanninga, a 6-4 senior who shot 58 per cent from the field last season. With the loss of senior Jeff Smith at guard, and forward Keith McKim, Gibbs will look to junior-college transfer Mike Miller, a smooth 6-1 junior guard who will try to fill the shoes of Smith. Other players returning include: Pat Harrison, a 6-0 junior guard, and 5-9 sophomore guard Brian Roach. Freshmen who may see some playing time this year are: James Collins, Keith Drew, Luke Washington and Jeff Singletary. "Like a student preparing for exams, we cannot predict our performance since we are not sure what the instructor will put on the test. Returning players is our strength and overall height is our weakness," Gibbs said. In scrimmage games so far, Peru has defeated Fairbury Junior College and Tarkio College and lost to Missouri Western. The Bobcats open at the Central Methodist Classic scheduled for Nov. 12-13.

David Pasley (42) follows Kevin Hixson (37) after taking the handoff from QB Mark Sievers (9) in Peru's 21-14 win over Westmar.

Lady Cats Ready.for BB Season Kathy O'Connor, second-year coach of the women's basketball team, said Peru could have one of its best teams ever. She says that the win-loss record is difficult to anticipate because they start with two of the toughest teams in the conference -Midland and Doane. Coach O'Connor said "The advantages of having a committed group, a combination of key recruitments, and more experienced players should lead the Lady Bobcats on the road to success." Eight letterwinners return from last year, which should strengthen the team. Lorrie Curnes, a 5-9 center-forward, is a senior returnee. Curnes, a three-year letterwinner, finished third in scoring last year and second in rebounding. · Another senior is one-year Jetterwinner Alice Anderson, who is starting her second year of playing eligibility. Last season, Anderson finished second in scoring and first in rebounding.

, Two-year letterwinners on the team are: 5-9 junior, Stephanie Ahern and 5-7 junior Carla Frauen. Other · letterwinners include!"> 5-7 sophomore, Linda Shepard; 5-10 sophomore, Barb Peterson; 5-5 sophomore, Georgean Schimke; 5-10 sophomore, Jackie Schultz. Colleeri Chapman, a 5-8 junior and 6-0 sophomore Rhonda Kunecke are junior college transfers. A newcomer is 5-7 sophomore Wendy Shuey, in her first year of competition. Freshman newcomers are: Lori Butler, 6-0; Regeana Watkins 5-9; Michelle Workman, 5-4; Barb Mitchell, 5-7; Linda .Dunn, 5-6; Jan Tolson, 5-8; Kristi Niday, 5-7. In 1981-82, Linda Shepard leads the team in total points with 336 and Alice Anderson was second. Shepard also- had the highest scoring average with 15.3 followed by Anderson and Barb Pederson. Anderspn was first in rebounds

with 189, followed by Curnes with 124. Anderson also led the rebounding average with 9.0 followed by Peterson. Georgeari Schimke led the team in assists with 52, followed by Carla Frauen and Shepard. O'Connor said she was pleased to have seven key players back this year. She said she was worried about Stephanie Ahern because of last year's knee surgery, but she added that she came back strong and is probably the best game situation passer on the team. O'Connor also said she will be glad to have the strong defensive play of Georgean Shimke and Barb Peterson. O'Connor said, "I'm impressed with the outside shot in combination with strong inside moves of Colleen Chapman." Coach O'Connor said a Blue-White game will be held on Nov. 13. The Lady Bobcats' home opener is November 22 agamst Tarkio.

I'm in what you say. Sincerely, Mark B. Larson, suspending their use until I hear from the rest of· you. We'll be Food Service Director.

In addition to Mr. Larson's comments, the following points also need to be discussed: First, students. should be aware that their contract does state that the cafeteria is closed during the vacation periods. The board contract states that the student agrees to the termw:and conditions of the board plan as specified in the housing handbook. On page 9 of the housing handbook, there is reference to the cafeteria being closed during vacations. ~esides the fact. that the contract states the closing of the cafeteria during vacations, the Office of Residence Life also sent out an important message to all students residing on campus that explained that the cafeteria would be closed over fall break. The notice also pointed out that the students could eat in the Bob Inn during the break, but they would need to pay for their meals on a cash basis. Perhaps this is a good time to remind students that they are responsible for what is stated in their .housing handqook. If students have not read their housing handbooks, perhaps this is a good opportunity to review the rules arrd regulations that are stipulated in the handbook and are a part of the housing and board contracts. Sincerely, Patricia G. Conway, Director of Residence Life.

Letter to the Editor In reference to the letter to the editor November 5, 1982, I would like to make an apology to Mr. Mark Larsen, the director of the cafeteria. I talked with him a couple of days after the paper was published. I am told that the cafeteria is only open qpder a

contract basis. If the cafeteria is open,any other time then people who would like to eat should pay more money at the semester. If you have any questions see Mr. Larsen! Sincerely yours, Kelly Clemons.

Day Care Center Opens With the work ·of many persons, a day care·center has been established at PSC. It is a non-profit organization funded by the United Ministries to Higher Education, local organizations and individuals. Barb Shupe, vice-president of the day care center, sa~d the purpose of the center is to provide a place of care for the children of PSC non-traditional students and employees, while at the same time preparing children for kindergarten. Shupe commented that the ·prices vary for the center. The regular Ghild price is $1 an hour, the regular baby price is $1.25 an hour, the price for children not enrolled is $1.25 an hour, and the price for infants not enrolled is $1.50 an hour. Funds go towards snacks for the children, rent for

the mini gym, employees' payment and other expenses. The staff members are Lila Land-Fike, president; Barb Shupe, vice-president; Ruth Henderson, treasurer; and Sharon Roe, secretary. All the needs of the center have not been fulfilled. A few of them are shelving, wooden puzzles, newspaper, and fireproof carpeting. Contact Barb 'Shupe at 872-7635 if you can lend a helping hand. Shupe expressed that the center provides the children with four meals a day: breakfast, mid-day snack, lunch, and afternoon snack. The hours of the center are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., but the center can open as early as 6:30 a.m. and close as late as 6:00 p.m. if necessary.

Editorially Speaking Recentiy Peru had the opportunity to hook up to cable TV through the Midlands Cable Systems, which is due to be hooked within this semester. Cable is one thing that students here. as well as citizens, have said to be a necessity. After all Auburn has had it for quite some tirne.

What surprised me the most was the number .of people wnv decided to hook-up. Although I don't know any exact figures, the man I talked to at city hall told me the turnout wasn't overpowering, to say the least. I thought that entertainment was something that students wanted, and cable seemed to be one possible answer. So far I've heard complaints that HBO wasn't part of the deal, and the price for the movie channt:l was too high.

Anyone making the excuse that they don't have the money is lying to themselves. I see people wasting money on Pac-Man and alcohol when a few dollars a week could provide entertainment that could be watched 24 hours a dav. Besides, it is a lot cheaper td watch movies in a comfortable chair than having to · spend $3 in a theatre. Now I realize that the bars and arcades have to make a living, but cable is a worthwhile investment in the long run. It will be a positive change from the programming that the major networks find entertaining. In closing, if the people of this campus want to see changes or improvements, then they are going to have to start taking part in things to see a change.

Frat Reaches Goals Phi Beta Lambda, PSC's business fraternity, has surpassed all expectations of this years' officers and sponsors. A 72 per cent increase in membership and greater club participation are two reasons for the optimism.

Appointed to Post

By Jim Zipursky Jerry Joy, Peru State athletic director and head football coach, has been appointed as Peru's new Dean of Student Affairs, according to Dr. Jerry Gallentine, Peru State president. Joy, who came to Peru in 1975, said "I'm sorry to get out of coaching; I know I'll really miss it. However. I can't pass up such a good career opportunity." Joy is also an instructor in physical education. Joy replaces Dr. Myron Apilado who left Peru in September for a similar job at St. Martin's College in Lacey, Wash. Joy takes over the position effective Jan. 1. The Shubert native guided the Bobcats to a 40-36-2 record in his eight years as head coach. The team's 9-l record in 1980 is the fourth best single-season record in Peru history; the nine wins that season are the second highest single-season total in Bobcat history. Joy turned a foundering program into the 20th winningest NAIA Division II team for the years 1977-81. Joy's teams compiled a 32-15-2 record over that five year span. Joy's 40 wins at Peru is the third highest total among all Peru head coaches; his 52.6 winning percentage at Peru is the fifth best in Bobcat history. Joy's 1980 and 1981 squads were rated 10th and 20th, respectively, in the NAIA Division II final ratings. His 1980 team barely missed getting into the National Championship play-offs; they missed a perfect record by one point, losing their only game to arch-rival Chadron, 22-21, on a last second touchdown pass. There have been four different All-Americans in football at Peru State, and Joy has coached three of them. Roosevelt Brown was a first team All-American in 1980, Garland Shafer was named to the second team in 1981, and

Jim Heineman, Vice President of the club, said, "This years group has a positive overall attitude toward club participation, they can really be proud of themselves." The sponsors for this year's club are Russ Beldin, Jack Hamilton, and Bob Lewellen. Each has expressed his credence in the club.

Alvin Holder was a first team All-American in both 1980 and 1981. Joy was named the Omaha "World-Herald" State College Coach ofthe Year following the 1980 season.

Friends University in Wichita, Kans., where he was the head football coach and athletic director. Joy compiled a 33-19-2 record while at Friends and led the Falcons to a 9-1 record and the conference championship his final year there.

As athletic director, Joy oversaw the building of Peru's new HPER Center facility and theuMajors Hall redevelopment project. The HPER Center and the newly renovated Major's Hall athletic and conference center give Peru what might be the finest athletic facilities among the four state colleges. Joy came to Peru from

Joy was the defensive coordinator, )lead baseball coach, and assistant b~sketball coach at Doane from 1964 to 1968. With Joy in charge of the defense, the Tigers went 7-0-1, 8-0-1, and 10-0-0 his last three years on the Crete campus. Doane's overall record in football from 1964-68 was 31-11-3.

out of parents' and students' calculations if they are questioning their financial aid eligibility and amount," Miller said. He said the financial aid computer, M-Data System, is the answer to the problem of the long waiting period that college-shopping students exper.ience in waiting for decisions on financial aid. Other exhibits that will be at the special day in Omaha and Lincoln include a micro-computer that the business division will be operating and a blue print-making-machine from the applied arts division. Award-

winning, nationally known cartoonist Paul Fell, art professor at PSC, will also be present to greet students. PSC staff will be available to discuss residence housing and student activities in addition to financial aid and representatives from the divisions of applied arts, business, education, humanities, natural sciences, physical education and continuing education will be on hand to explain special courses of study to prospective college students.

Ken Steidle, director of admissions, who has arranged this special PSC open house for three years, said that a new computer science major is offered at PSC that many high school students are investigating. "These open houses in Omaha and Lincoln give students an opportunity to explore their futures and I think that this is an excellent method for high school juniors and seniors to become better acquainted with Peru State College programs," Steidle said.

Stratton, director of printing services; Fell, assistant professor of art; and Sherwood, professor of art and chairman of the humanities division, are well-known in the area for their scenes of Nebraska, according to Jeanette Hansen, vice president of the Brownville Fine Arts Association. Fell has caricatures on display and is available for drawing personalized caricatures, according to Hansen. The Schoolhouse Gallery,. open for the first Christmas display this year, is part of the annual Christmas tour of homes co-sponsored by the Brownville Historical Society. Outfitters' Row will be open in addition to the tour and the Schoolhouse Gallery.

Thanksgiving Celebrated·• •

Fall Semester 1n Review By Don Strecker Now that the semester is close, I think this is a good. time to recap the ha~ngs of this term. · The year started out with several new faces in the PSC faculty and staff. The most imp()rtant new person :was PSC's new president Dr. Jerry Gallentine. Dr. Gallentine came to us from Labette Community College in Parsons, Kansas, where he had ·been th.e college president for the past three years. While he was there, enrollment increased by 72 per cent. This statistic shows what kind of leadership skills Dr. Gallentine has, and he has done a great job in·his firs,t year at Peru. Another new person who has done a fine job is Jim Zipursky, the Sports Information Director. Zipursky came to .Peru from a big-time college program, the University of California-Berk. eley and has introduced some very good ideas during his stay. The:Sports Information Depart~otplng to a

ment has become well organized under his leadership. Although not a new person to PSC, Peggy Gibb's, the student programs coordinator, has done a fine job in her new position. The wife of, head basketball Coach John Gibbs, Peggy has accomplished many things. Mrs. Gibbs has organized many dances and other activities. She has planned and organized the Christmas Formal which will be held in Nebraska City this evening. She has also planned the trip to Kansas City for the PSC-UMKC and KingsKnicks basketball doubleheader. There are many other people who have contributed to a successflll first semester. They include Chuck Reed, Assistant Admissions Director; Mark Rankin, Industrial Arts; Dr. Wayne Dividson, Physical Education; Nick Petrillo, Physical Education; David Evans, Music; and Sue Stevens, Business. If I forgot anyone, I apologize. It was qone unintentionally.

There were many activities which took place during the year. The main activity, as it is on most campuses, is to follow the ups and downs of the football team. For Peru students and fans, 1982 brought mostly downs. The Bobcats finished the season with a 1-8 record for the year, but showed a huge .amount of promise for the future. The 1983 team will look different in coaching philosophy from the '82 team with the resign~tion of Jerry Joy for the Dean of Student Affairs position. So, the big question at the moment is who the new coach and athletic director will be. The answer is yet to be found. There were many other activities and events throughout the semester, including Homecoming, Beat-the-Jinx Week, and others. If's been a good year for everyone (well, alniost everyone). So, as we prepare for our last week of school this semester, I would like to wish everyone good :luck on their finals and to have a ~Merry Christmas. · ·

Thanksgiving was celebrated at Peru State College beginning with a Thanksgiving buffet in the Student Center dining hall and followed by a Thanksgiving service in the Fine Arts Building, sponsored by Peru Kiwanis and Circle K, Tuesday evening. . · Speaker at the 7:30 p.m., service was Dr. Jerry Gallentine, president of Peru State . College. The Council of Delzell Hall hosted a Turkey Trot Tuesday evening in Delzell with music provided by,Mac's Music. Chuck :Chase';·<"DelzeH Hall resident assistant, junior, Thurman, Ia., and Terry Matzen, sophomore, Ft. Calhoun, hosted a Thanksgiving dinner also

sponsored by the Delzell H Council, with the assistance Chuck's mother, Mrs. Ing Chase of Thurman, Ia., w cooked the noon dinner. Th dinner includes a 22-lb.-turkey., and three pies donated by Peggy. Gibbs, Student Programs Direc~ tor. "We feel it would be unfortunate if people didn't have others to celebrate Thanksgiving with," Chase said. . Peru residents who would have spent the day by themselves. were invited to celebrate Thanksgiving with Delzell residents who lived too far from home to leave for the holiday and foreign students.

Smoker Held at Nebr. City . Nebraska City Jaycees sponsored their own version of "Saturday Night Boxing," a smoker at the Nebraska City High School, November 20. There were nine fights, consisting of three, two minute rounds. The high .light came when PSC's. Rick Johnson, freshman, Lebanon, scored the only knockout of the.night as he put down Rich Hellerich of

Nebraska City, in the first round. PSC's Kris Nickolaison, freshman, Fremont, battled it out against Jody Hermann of Nebraska City. Hermann was declared the winner by judges decision. The bouts were fought to help raise money for Mitch Miller, a Nebraska City resident who was injtired in a swimmjng accident.·

Editorially Speaking Well, the time has finally come, one that I thought might never get here. My reign as managing editor bas come to an end; this being my last issue, although I will serve a:s associate editor next semester. I would like to take this opportunity to review what has transpired since my dictatorship began. Th.e first thing that we needed to learn was how to do a layout. I had no real idea of how to do one, so Mike Northrup who was. the previous editor, gave the Ped staff a few quicky lessons. The first layout was a little messy and required some erasing. A lot of questions were left unanswered that first night, so we did the next. best thing, guess! ! Copy was no real problem, until we had stories that weren't

handed in on time, or not handed in at all. Sometimes that was all right because not every assignment was ultra-important, but we didn't bother telling the reporters that. Then there was the all-night affairs, which left our eyeballs looking like ping-pong balls. Usually a case of Pepsi or a bottle of no-doze was needed to help us stay awake. Then ·there was in-put from outside sources. We encourage ideas from everyone, letters to-the-editor, or just information. To all of you who helped, we (the Ped staff) would like to say thank-you, and I hope you will help to contribute to your paper again next semester. Last, there were those people who think they know au about journalism, or think they can do my job. These people were never

quote "pleased" with the result. I have some simple advice to them : Stick to something you know about, and let me worry about mine. It is those people who are afraid to say anything; but first to complain. It's hard to satisfy everyone and there is a wide variety of groups· to serve, so I hope we didn't overlook anyone. ()veran, I was pleased with our. end result. Having been· given this burden without any experience, I knew it would be a challenge. I think it turned out to be a successful semester, and a very memorable experience. I hope we provided a good service . to the campus and will continue to next semester. Believe me, being an editor is no easy task, andifyou don't think so, find out how many people inquire to become one.

PSC will have to take a 2 per cent cut, approximately $58,200, in its current operationa.l budget. The cut will be taken from funds remaining in the fiscal year budget of July 1, 1982. to June 30, 1983, that are not already tied up by legal means. Dr, Jerry Gallentine, president, said the majority of reduction will be in physical plant operations; maintenance,, custodial, and utilities.

Financial Survey ·T,aken The Economic Impact Survey being taken on campus, thru Dr. Jerry Gallentine, is to find out the financial impact that all PSC members have on the cities of Peru, Auburn, Nebraska' City, and all of South Eastern Nebraska. It asks such things such as how much you spend on gas, the care of your car, housing bills and all other financial aspects of your life. Dr. Gallentine said the survey was being taken not only by students, but ·by the staff, faculty, and administrative personnel also. Dr. Gallentine stated that the· survey is being conducted by the Bureau of Business Research out of Lincoln, Nebraska. The director of the survey is Dan Pursell who is well known for doing good surveys. Dr. Gallentine said this is why he was chos.en for the job.

Dr. Gallentine said that the purpose of the. survey is to be able to come up with reliable statistics to show the effects that PSC members have. on other cities such as the income they receive from people spending money on food; gas, bills, items from the stores, etc. Therefore, when the cities ai::e asked to help· contribute to Peru funds for things like new equipment and scholarshiPS, they can be sho\vn reliable statistics of how PSC is helping them. .· Pr.

Tlie brick and stucco building had ~ v~riety of uses. 'fhe upper floor was originally used as a physical training cen~r: At that· time, exercise consisted. of using dumbbells and India!) clubs; a far cry from today'.s extensive programs. . ... . Th.e}ower floor of the building was first used to house a heating plant, which used boilers to prod\ice steam heat. The~plant w~s moved to a. new · building contracted in 1907. An infirmary and nurse's quarte~s were established in the upper floor of the building in 1921, and remained there for sixty years until it was moved to .Majors Hall. Originally, the .nurse's quarters and infirmary.were set up in a cottage off campus, charging a health fee of so cents per student. Starting in 1947, the Well Child Conference occupied the lower level of the building. This clinic now meets in Majors Hall. The building was last used for storage. ·

Mrs. Virginia Miller, PSC nurse, was the1ast person to live .in the building. Her family moved into the upper floor's apartment in · 1969, and lived there until January of this year when their apartment in Majors Hall was completed. She described the old infirmary in the building as dark and dreary. She said there was mold on the walls, and the bathroom doors didn't ·shut. Despite its short,: comings, she said she felt a little sentimental when she and her family moved out of the building.

Dr. Harold Deselms, vicepresident, said the building was destroyed because it wasn't functional, wasn't needed, and was structurally unsound. He said the north wall was buckling, and the west side was braced up. The site is going to be landscaped, and no new structure is going to be. built.

Linda Shepard set 6 school records last Saturday in leading the Lady Bobcats to a 74-61 victory over Wayne State in their first home game of the year. . Shepard, a 5-7 sophomore guard, scored 34 pts. to break the all-time single game high of 29 pts, which she set l~st year vs. their first marathon ever, you can't ask for much greater performances.'' Cheryl and Nancy also competed in the NAIA national cross country finals at Kenosha, Wisc., on November 20. Cheryl finished 95th overall in a time of 20:29 over the five kilometer (3.1 mile> course. Nancy covered the rugged course in 21 :04, good for 127th overall. The winning time was 17:41. "rm not disappointed at all with their performances," said Obermeyer. "Their times could have been a little better, but they ran a good race," the coach said, "They are only freshmen and this was the first national championship meet they ever ran in; they'll do better next season." "I think my time could have been better." Cheryl said, "But I'm just happy I had a chance to run in this year's championship." Nancy voiced the same opinion, "Of course, I think I could have run faster," she said, "however, I'm · not displeased with my performance. Besides, I have three more years to run." Obermeyer said the course at Kenosha, home of the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, was a rugged one. "It was a tough course, especially the last mile," Obermeyer said. The Coreys were the first runners to represent Peru State at the NAIA national cross country finals for women. "I know I'll be back next year," Cheryl said. "Now that we made it to nationals as independents, I hope ne!'t season we can come as a team," Nancy said. "I'm really happy for both of them," Obermeyer said, "Best of all, they'll be here at Peru for another three years." The Coreys graduated from Lincoln Northeast; they are the daughters of Bobby and·Marilyn Corey.

Hastings. Her 11 field goals, and 22 first half points are also Bobcat records, breaking the records she set last year. Shepard also set a new mark for most field goals attempted in the first half and a new game total. Her hot shooting· also allowed her to set a record for most field goals scored in a game with 16, breaking her own record of 14 set just a year ago. "Linda is an outstanding individual performer," said Kathy O'Connor, 2nd year coach. "Linda played an outstanding game against Wayne ... She just needs to develop a little more consistency to become a top-rated player," she added. _ The Lady 'Cats took the opening basket and never looked

back, breaking to a 43-31 halftime lead on the strength of Shepard's 22 first half points, using a good fast break and strong board play. Sophomore forward Barb Peterson and center Alice Andersen, led the rebounding and added 11 and 10 points respectively.

Conway cited the housing options students may choose from at the Campus of a Thousand Oaks. "You try to provide a diversity of life styles for all students," she said, "single students, married students with a spouse that works, commuting students, the 139 students, or 38 per cent, that want to live alone are several of the classifications that oncampus housing accommodc;1c tes."

Co.11,ege Enrollmen·t lncrease·s Dr. Jerry Gallentine, president of PSC has announced that there has been a 9.5 per c1;mt increase in enrollment at the Campus of a Thousand Oaks. Gallentine compared the enrollment for spring, 1982, with spring, 1983, and said that in '82 there were 579 students enrolled on the campus at Peru State College; spring semester, '83, enrollment is 634. ·· "This is unusual for college enrollment as it is not abnormal for enrollment to decline from spring to fall with attrition, drop

outs and scholastic probation," he said. "We're turning that around and I predict that enrollmevt will steadily increase at Peru State College." He said that when the total figures are tabulated for spring off-campus courses, total enrollment will approach 1,000 for spring, $83.. The total enrollment, including off-campus classes, spring '82,' was 814 students. "There are several classes that will begin mid-February and March," he said.

There were 113 new students this semester compared to 50 new students last year at this time. There was a 2 _per cent increase in spring enrollment over fall enrollment. "We'.re making long-range plans and would like to have 1,500 Peru State students in five years," Gallentine said. "With everyone working togetherfaculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of Peru State College-we'll reach that goal."

.Letter to -the Editor Dear Editor: I would liketo.bring attention to students or residents of Peru who signed up -for cable television. We signed up back in November of 1982 for cable with the promise that we would receive the service · by the beginning of December or at the latest the end of the semester. Well Christmas has come and gone and we still don't. have any cable. What's the hold up? I put a ten dollar down payment on the first month and we don't even have a hook-up. I personally wanted it bec;mse of the great sports coverage that cable provides, but by the time

we get it, if we in fact do, most of the programming I wanted to see will already be over. I personally can't see how people can sit around and let their money be ripped off. If I were given the chance to sign up again, I would tell the Midlands Cable System to sit on it. Anyone who can't back up what they claim shouldn't be in business! ! So citizens of Peru, let's get together. Either we get what we were promised, or get our money back and· find a more reliable source! The time to act is now. It's really hard to say at this point, but it looks like we've been had! Name withheld.

The article that Co1.lil.I$ submitted was a winter roadside survey of hawks in Nemaha. Co~ty.

About 25 young redtail hawk ch_ icks were banded _to provide . data for Collins' research.

Actor Dennis Weaver to Star in Drug Film Dennis Weaver, who stars in "Cocaine: One Man's Seduction," which airs on NBC-TV, Sunday, Feb. 27, 9P.M., believes that people' in the public eye, particularly those in the communications industry, have a responsibility. to inform the public on important social issues. As an actor, he welcomes roles that deal with social pr()blems. He has starred in 'Intimate Strangers," a TV movie about wife beating. He played an alcoholic in "Don't Go To Sleep" and he appeared. with Valerie Harper in "The Day The Loving Stopped," which explored the problems of divorce and broken families. "Films like that should be made and should be part of the television fare," he says. "I'm particularly pleased with 'Cocaine: One Mail's Seduction' because I have been involved quite closely with a couple of drug rehabilitation facilities. One, in particular, called Cry ···Help, was started by ex-users who wanted to help people who were still in trouble. It involves the same kind of treatment offered by alcoholics anonymous. It's called N.A., or narcotics anonymous. There is a definite program of rehabilitation to prepare people for a usefulness in society." Weaver believes his new film

is especially important at .this time because cocaine is becoming the All-American drug. "It is common knowledge that, today, coke is the drug of choice for millions of solid, middle class people," he says. "There is even a feeling that it is not addictive. It is an insidious kind of drug, because, at first, it gives users a euphoric lift and a felling of confidence. In the end, it brings on depression, edginess and weight loss. Finally, it destroys you. It pulls the rug out from un~er you, completely." In "Cocaine: One Man's Seduction," we see how . a successfulreal estate salesman, played by Weaver, is seduced into trying coke when business turns sour. One "toot" leads to another. As his usage of the drug increases, it brings on paranoia, hallucinations, damage to his nasal membranes and, finally, total physical collapse. There is some hope that films like this wiU stop the .cocaine blizzard that now blows through middle class America and Weaver believes it his responsibility to alert people to the dangers he knows exist should they succumb to this white powder nightmare .. "Cocaine: One Man's Seduction" is a David Goldsmith Production in association with Charles Fries Producti-0ns.

Dennis Weaver stars in "Cocaine: One Man's Seduction," a two-hour TV movie that deals with the problems of cocaine use.among middle class Americans.

Colleges Are Perfecting Money H.unt by David Gaede (CPS> -

The campus of Park Co1lege in rural Missouri happ~ns to cover over 800 acres of rich limestone deposits. Soon, officials plan to mine and sell the limestone, and then lease out the excavated caverns as underground warehouse and office space. The scheme may sound odd or even far-fetched, but administrators at Park don't have much choice. They say it's the best way they have to make up for federal and state funding cuts the school has suffered over the last few years. Colleges everywhere are resorting to schemes and somewhat-eccentric strategies in this, the third year of a prolonged depression in college revenues. · Georgetown, for example, is going into the energy business. Brown has jumped into the mail-order business, peddling gifts ranging from $10 to $10,000 in a special "pull-out gift catalogue" alumni newsletter section that might make Romeo proud.

Wash. OK's Sign Lingo The University of Washington has become the first school in the country to allow students to use American Sign Language to meet foreign language admissions requirements. Washington had previously refused to consider Ameslan, as the sign language is often.called, because it wasn't a "natural language," according to Michael Magie of UW's · admissions office. But the university changed its mind on February 1st, Magie reports, and determined Ameslan evolved out of a culture of its own. At the same time, the university refused·· to approve compQter language as a substitute for a foreign language. Computer language, Magie says, "will not count. It is not a natural language." Washington requires incoming students to have two years of a foreign language.

Magie estimates there are "maybe a dozen or so deaf students on campus," whose foreign language requirements had previously been handled on "a case-by-case basis." He points out the new policy also applies to "students who want to be interpreters for the deaf and hearing-impaired."' Students can also use Ameslan to meet new foreign language requirements, which will go into effect in 1985 or 1986. However, they'll have to have learned Ameslan elsewhere. Washington does not' have an Ameslan program on the campus. (CPS) .

Financia·I Aid Deadline i·s Set The suggested date for submitting Financial Aid Application materials is April 1, according to Donald Miller Director of Student Financial Aid. The Office of Student Fina11cial Aid. sent Financial Aid Applications to all currently enrolled students. Miller said that the plan was to have the materials in the students hands before spring break so that the students could obtain the appropriate information while they were home. Materials which· were provided to the students include the Financial Aid Student Handbook and the Applicati()n for Federal Student Aid. In the back of the Student · Handbook is a one page application which, among other things. lists the four programs which are ad.Jninistered l>Y PSC. The student should cQmp'lete. this

form, indicating the order in which he-she wishes to be considered for the programs, Miller said. The Application for Federal Student Aid must be completed and submitted so that the student's eligibility for the Need Based programs can be determined. The Need Based prog·rams include the Pell Grant, the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, College Work Study, and National Direct Student Loans. Miller said that students who are applying for· scholarships only are not.required to submit the applications for Federal Student Aid. ·· The procedures for submftting the Application for Federal Student Aid are as follows: First, the student should · complete the application following the directfons. The student should complete both copies of

the form. Secondly, the student should mail one copy to the Pell Grant Processing Center in Los Angeles, California,. as he is instructed to do. This application will be used to determine the student's eligibility for the 1983-84 Pell Grant. Third, the student should bring the other copy of the application to the Financial Aids Office. Finally, when the student receives the Student Aid Report they should submit all copies of the report to the Financial Aids Office. The application for Federal Student Aid replaces the ACT Family" Financial Statement which had been used in the past, said Mr. Miller. "The reason for us changing this procedure is that we can have the Need Analysis determined free of charge," he added. The ACT Family Finailcial Statement requires a $6.50 .processary fee.

has just proposed an increase in student fees. And in,Kansas, the Fort Hays St.ate University student government is also prosposirig a new student activity fee. "Most of our students think it's a pretty equitable deal," says Harper Senate President John Weirich. Besides the fee increase, the Senate also wants to base fees on the cost of tuition, Weir~ch says. "That way we're not always running to get more money," he explains. "We know they'll only increase tuition if there's a reason for it, and tying the student fee to that will insure that student servi-ces remain adequately funded." ! But Harper students, too, expect opposition from the administration because of concerns over competitive pricing. "That certainly is a switch," says Bill McNamara, communications director of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities. Typically, he notes, administrators the ones trying to convince students that a fee increase is necessary. "Who is the administration to argue with (the students) anyway?" asks a spokesman for the American Student Association. ''If, in their own judgement, the students feel a fee increase is necessary, I think that shows we have some very responsible students who are concerned with the quality of education." Administrators, the spokesman says, "seem more concerneq with quantity than quality," if the only thing they worry about is how many students might be priced out of school by "necessary" fee increases.

A calendar centered by a lonely light house, with two motor boats racing toward it, an evening ph(!tograph of Manhattan and a Newport acrylic, the favorite of thef artist, were pleasant East Coast transplants. Morin attended the Junior College of Albany for two years before coming to Peru State College. An art teacher of

Morin's at Wilbur Lynch Middle SChool, Amsterdam, N.Y., Bill Bouton, PSC, Class of 1965, had told him about Peru, Morin said, and Morin decided to come to Peru because of the reasonable cost. · "I wouldn't have been able to finish my education otherwise," he said. Morin plans to teach art and eventually do free-lance advertising.

Good Luck .Black Lead'ers Attack New NCAA R·ute .

in the ·


from the

PED Staff!

Black college presidents' opposition to tlu~ National Collegiate Athletic Association's new, tougher academic standards for athletes may soon broaden into a general attack on standardized tests, black leaders at a special meeting at Southern University last month warned. "We have not fought hard enough against standardized tests," Southern President Jesse Stone told the press after the meeting. "This thing opens up a real Pandora's box." Standardized tests like the - Scholastic Aptitude Test and the ACT (American College Testing exam) can't predict. accurately


how the student. is going to do in college, Stone added. Stone led the opposition at the NCAA's convention in early January to new rules that will require athletes to maintain a-2.0 grade point average in a variety of science and language courses, and to have at least a 700 on their SATs or a 15 on their ACTs in order to be eligible to compe.te in intercollegiate sports. At the convention, Stone.called the new rules "patent racism" because they' would have the effect of barring many blacks from intercollegiate sports. To press his charge, Stone called the meeting of 20 black

movement leaders last .week. But the leaders decided to go after standardized testing itself rather than the NCAA, at least for the moment. In a statement released just after the_ meeting, Educational Testing Service President Gregory Anrig agreed standardized tests shouldn't be used to determine academic eligibility. "The proposed use of a fixed cutoff score on nationally standardized admissions tests will have effects that may not have been fully realized before this decision was reached," he wrote. In using the tests as factors in

admissions, different schools use different cutoffs. In an attachment, Anrig noted that 56 per cent of all the blacks who took the SAT in 1981 scored under 700. The average black student combined score was 707. Anrlg agreed the "issue ·cuts across racial lines" because white students' average score in 1981 was 927. Critics have long criticised the SATs for being culturally-biased in favor of white students. Stone says his group will first try to mobilize the black community to help him publicize those biases.

Schools in Auburn, Plattsm0uth, Tecumseh, Table Rock, Conestoga, and Farragut; Iowa and a group of science teachers from Southeast Nebraska has been recent audiences for this colorful presentation. "I try ·to do two things in the program," Pippert said. "First, illustrate ways we know that chemical reactions have taken place such as when light and heat are given off; or gases are being evolved, or there is a color change; and second, I try to illustrate the practical uses of chemistry.

He said that "Chemagic" not only enhances his.. lectures in

chemistry as a professor, but that it has been a useful program for students and teachers in the area. "One of the bigger goals of 'Chemagic' is to stimulate students' ina~rest to study science and to go into a science career later," he said. "I have yet to give the program to a group that did not enjoy 'Chemagic."' All age groups, from small children to adults, ehjoy the program tha.t lasts ·about 45 minutes and includes 10 experiments. "About 350 people were in one of the larger audiences. when I appeared at Southeast Consolidated High School at the Science Fair in February," Pippert said. · "Chemistry is interesting and fun," Pippert said.

and Pedagogian Peditorial By Sally Martineau

I feel sorry for the 950 students and faculty members who missed Nancy Hill sing last Friday. She was inspiring and an exceptional singer and guitarist. But the attendance was up to par for PSC. Why support an activity at Peru, whell' there is always the television set, four blank walls to gaze at, and the good ole' bottle of beer to fall back on. The scapegoat of college life. It is not just students, don't get me wrong. At the first baseball game of the season there were four faculty members to approximately 50 students. Not a

bad ratio, huh. Can y~u remember the last music activity you attended'? Maybe the music isn't very updated or your type, but the music students attend and play at every home football game. They at least support one sport activity. I am not saying don't study and attend every PSC activity, just .try to make an effort. If every student and faculty member would attend one activity a week, some department would have a tremendous turnout. Please let's not hav~ everyone get enthused .at once, a mere IO per cent would be nice.

Another point I would like to touch on is faculty support of -students. I know of two students who approached the music department to use their sound system for one hour, for an upcoming contest and they were abruptly turned down. TJley were told students could not use the sound system. If students from PSC can't use the system, then who can. As it turned out, the system was set up the next day for a choir clinic. The two students did get .to . use' the system under obvious protest. I think there needs to be a re-evaluation of policies.

Miller Becomes New PSC Photographer. David,, Miller, a senior from Tulsa, Oklahoma, has accepted the position . as photographer from the College Relations office, directed by Pat Larsen, and the Pedagogian, managed by Don Strecker. "I'm. really kind of surprised actually," said Miller. "Early in the year I had asked about helping out but they didn't seem to be interested so I just didn't inquire about it any more. Then I talked to Vince Henzel just about the middle of February, and I talked to Mrs. Pat Larsen of College Relations office and she was very interested because

they didn't have anyone at the start of this semester. Miller, who is currently a member of the 1983 Bobcat baseball team, was also a member of the basketball team. Miller served as a photographer and .developer while at Northeastern A & M Junior College in Miami, Oklahoma. "I had some experience in high school and junior college. I like working with film and I hope I can do a good job for the school," Miller added. Miller will fill the facancy left by Mike Northrup who left school for personal reasons.

PSC Classes at FtCHS This semester Ft. Calhoun High School seniors are offered Engllsh and math classes for college credit from PSC. Credit earned from these classes. · is beyond high school credit and will appear on a PSC transcript that can be transferred to Peru or to another college or university upon graduation. The Ft. Calhoun-PSC cooperative agreement allows a high school student to work tGwards a college degree before actually being on campus at Peru, according to Dr. Clyde Barrett, vice president for academic affairs at PSC.

Ft. Calhoun High School staff are instructors and use the same co,µrse outline, texts, and grading scale that is used on the Peru campus. The college-level courses are graded on a 9.0 scale and some students earn 15 hours of college creditin high school, the equivalent of one semester. Students in the cooperative program are required to be on the Peru campus three times during the semester according to the agreeement. They pay tuition based on the regular tuition charged, plus a one-time matriculation fee. Classes offered are English 101, English composition, 3

hours credit; English 202, Appreciation of Literature, 3 hours; math 105, precalculbs mathematcis,5hours; math 106, precalculus math, 5 hours; and math 102, introduction to data processing, three hours. The pilot of this cooperative program began in Plattsmouth and Auburn in 1974 with about two.· hundred students taking advantage of this service since then, Barrett said. "And practically all of the students go on to higher education, many to Peru State College. "We feel that this is another service that Peru State College is able to provide the residents of eastern Nebraska."

First-year· head Coach Nick Petrillo, who also serves as a defensive coordinator for the Bobcat football team, has seven returning lettermen from 1982's 9-15 club. Larry Benton, a senior shortstop from Tampa, Fla,, leads this year's contingent. Benton batted .382 in '82 while earning first team All-District honors. Senior catcher Mike Drotzman, Crofton, will also help to give the Bobcats stability of defense as he returns as the starting catcher. In 1982, Drotzman batted .306 in 72 plate appearances.. Chris Hutt, a senior from Tecumi;;eh, is also back for his final campaign. Hutt, who will return to first base this season, provided much of the power hitting last season. Hutt batted .419, drove in 28 RBI's, and slammed six home runs in 24 games. · Infielder Dick Haneline and Jeff Smith will battle for the third base position. Haneline, a sophomore from Omaha, hit .282 at third a year ago, while Smith, a senior from Lincoln, was a .347 hitter at second base last season. Smith may also serve duty in the outfield this year. The last of the returning lettermen include a pair of outfielders from Oklahoma; Brian Strother, Broken Arrow, and David Miller, Tulsa. Strother was the top hitter last .season at .550 while driving in 14 RBI's. Strother had the longest consecutive hitting streak in the

nation last season when he hit safely 14 times over a span of four games. "Strother slugged in two home runs, one triple, two doubles, and nine singles in that streak. Strother also was safely on base 17 straight times with 14 hits and three walks. Miller, an outfielder last season, batted .273 in 22 trips to the plate last season. Both Miller and Strother finished play on the 1982-83 Bobcat basketball team. The top newcomer on the squad is Kevin Sykes, a junior from Granite City, Ill. Sykes, a junior college transfer from Lewis and Clark Community College, was a Southern Illinois Junior College All-Star at second base, and looks to be the starter for next Monday's contest.

Following a national trend that shows more women that men on college campuses across the country, of the 155 accepted applications for fall 1983 admittance to PSC, 87 are women and 68 are men. According to a Census Bureau report in mid-March, women are expanding their enrollment and the average age of college students is creeping upward. And the report says that this began in 1979. By 1981, there were 108 women in college to every 100 men. Jerry Joy, dean of student affairs at PSC, said that last

year at this time 81 women's admissions applications had been accepted compared with 36. men's admissions applications. "Peru State College encourages the non.-traditional (over the age of 23) student to attend," Joy said. "An example of services provided the older student with children is the Day Care Center." He said that the 155 applications are mostly from within the 100-mile service area. In a report to the State College Board of Trustees in March, PSC President Jerry Gallentine poin-

He said that the number of older students at Peru has increased by more than 10 per cent since 1980 and that the average age of all Peru students, which includes those taking night and off-campus courses, has gone from 29 to 31 since fall 1980. "This market will continue to grow," he said, "and our fall 1983 applications prove it."

Despite Buildup, Campus Research Funding .Flattens .,-

Federal research support for the nation's colleges and universities will "just about keep pace with inflation" next year, despite the Reagan administration's proposed 18 per cent increase in overall research funding, a new study shows. Most of the 18 per cent increase in federal research money "won't even be seen by colleges and universities," but

will instead go to ·private corporations, says Albert Teich, co-author of the American Association for the Advancement of Science's annual study of research and . development funding. Support for college and university_ research will increase 4.7percent next year, according to the study, amounting to a $236 million increase in real dollars.

But in constant dollars, funding will rise only one-half of one per cent, or by $10 million. · "A lot of people are talking about the big 18 per cent increase the administration has proposed for overall research funding,'' Teich notes. "But colleges and universities won't fare nearly as well as the private sector. Most of that money will go to corporations

like the big aerospace firms." Within the overall $7 billion increase, moreover, funding for defense research will increase by nearly 28 per cent, while basic research funding will get only a 5.5 per cent increase in constant dollars. Funding for university research through the departments of Agriculture, Commerce,

Interior, Education, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration will actually decrease, the study points out. -And the National Institutes of Health, which channel nearly $2.3 billion in research money to colleges, will suffer a nearly two per cent cut in federal support if Congress approves· Reagan's funding requests.

and Letters to the Editor Mrs. Gibbs To the Editor: Peggy Gibbs deserves an applause for the great job done this year with student programs. This is only my second year at PSC, but the organization of student programs, if compared to last year, is really amazing. She has broadened the. students knowledge of day by day activities with monthly calendars and posters. She has brought in good movies, good music, and special talents, like Willie Stargell. The few of us that attended Casino Night really had a great time with super nice prizes. I respect and praise her works in reaching out to get more students involved. It is sad that more students don't participate in college sponsored activitif..>. Congratulations Mrs. Gibbs for the fine job done this year. There really are some of us out here that greatly appreciate your hard-work and eagerness to get involved .. Keep up the great work. Name Withheld.

Cable Reply Editor's Note: This letter was received approximately two weeks ago while the cable was . being installed. To the Editor:· Perhaps you and the students at Peru State College would like ·an update on cable TV services in your city. By reading your paper, it appears more information is needed. At this date, most of Peru is on cable. It should also be noted at this time that most of our construction problem in Peru derived from getting the necessary clearance from the power company.

Financial Aid Dear Students: By now eac)l. of you has probably heard Qn the. evening news and read in your local or university newspaper about President Reagan's proposed changes' to the Federal student financial assistance programs sponsored by the Department of Education. I would like to take this opportunity to explain the budget we have requested. The chartbelow compares the 1983 student aid budget with our proposed budget for 1984. Because over 1 billion dollars has been saved as a result of declining interest rates, the tota.l

funding proposed for 1984 is level with 1983. The difference in the two budgets is· where we have put the dollars. We are prpposing to consolidate the current six programs into one loan, one worll:-study, and one grant.

The Senate In recognizing some outstanding contributions on the part of PSC students we find one which cannot be overlooked. The student run Pedegogian has been an outstanding contribution. To-what do you ask? Well unfortunately we are unable to answer our own question. · Perhaps a better inquiry would be, "What should the Ped have outstandingly contributefl?" Many students have been greatly disappointed in the PED this year and we feel they are quite justified in their view, and we must add that we take the same attitude. The coverage of events on campus has been enemic compared to that of the past year. A majority of things tnat happen, things of much importance come out in our PED . .. more than a week late. OLD NEWS. You see, we know we live in a place where telegraph and telephon~s would not even be necessary. Word of.· mouth serves us very well here. We

want to read articles that have not had time to come through the Grape Vine. Also some of the NEWS is of little importance to PSC students. Dennis Weaver is one great actor and a great humanitarian no doubt, but what does that matter. Contributions of our faculty, staff, and most importantly- our STUDENTS must come first, WE, the senate do not like being preempted by such news as the Dennis Weaver story. It took up half the front page, isn't anyone around here worth a half of page? We sincerely felt that something should be said about this problem. Even though there are many other gripes that we could air, we will close by simply saying this: Our students, students ii:i all areas, our faculty and our. staff deserve more. Fortunately we feel that next year will be the improvement we've waited for and are looking forward to it. Our money will finally'be used well and for good purposes. PSC Student Senate

'Imaginary Invalid' Will be Performed "Imaginary Invalid" will be presented at PSC April 21-23 at 8 p.m. and at 2 p.m. on the 24th. The three act play, written by Moliere and adapted by Mile~ Malleson, is set in 1674 in Paris. It is basically a farce and social comment on doctors. According to Richard Wood who plays the lead of Monsieur Argan, the storyline is, "Toinette wants to help Angelica marry Cleante, but Argan insists that she marry Dr. Thomas Diaforus, and Beline and the lawyer have ideas of their own." The remaining cast includes: Toinette, the maid and nurse, Janelle Casey; Angelica, Argan's elder daughter, Karen

Coover; Beline, Argan's wife,· Lori Walton; Monsieur .Bonnefoy, a lawyer, Ray Smith; Cleante, in. love with Angelica,· Jamie Thompson; Dr. Diaforus, Gary Dixon; Dr. Thomas Diaforus, his son, Roger Tupper; Louise, Argan's younger daughter, Jackie Hawley; Monsieur Beralde, Argan's brother, Chuck Mittan; Apothecary, John Bom:n; Dr. Purgon, Rick Ossian. Pam Wertz is stage manager, and Dr. Charles Harper is the director. ·All costumes are being made by the scene and costume design class. Besides performances at PSC, the play will also J?e touring Elk Creek, Johnson-Brock and Murdock.

President Reagan's proposal suggests that cost of attendance should figure prominantly in the calculation of a student's Self-help grant. A student attel)ding a community college and living at home obviously has less cost than a student attending a $7,500 institution in a different town or state. -The "cost-sensitivity" of the Sel(, help Grant Program shoufd ensure that needy students have a greater choice in selection of an institution to attend. While the maximum· Pell Grant is $1,800, a student who attends a high cost institution and has a small expected family contribu-... tion could receive a $3,000 Self-help ~ant. The equity issue is one that has long been wrestled with in the delivery of Federal grant programs. Many students are awarded more money than they actually need while many more do· not rece~ve enough to meet their coll'ege costs. This situation has resulted~ in large part because of the complexity of the Pell G.rant Program eligibility criteria. To address this problem, the new Self-help Grant program proposes, for example, re<].ucing from 22 to five the number · of factors used to determine a family's ability to contribute. Changes such as this will go far toward· resl;ablishing the original intent. of the grant program-that- of providing access to higher. education for those who would not be able to attend college with<mt assistance. The new Self-help Grant is. designed to build , on that original purpose by giving needy students choice in addition to : access. This Administration's strong commitment to education demands that we take steps to improve student aid delivery. By consolidating the .Programs . to simplify management and by requiring a student contribution to higher education costs before grant aid is provided, we believe that we can maintain tile integrity of· Federal student assistance programs. Simplifying tbe system and maintaining integrity are the only ways to ensure that the programs will be available to future generations of students. Edward M. Elmendorf, Assistant Secretary for Postsecondary Education. -

"Cartooning and Humorous Illustration" is a new course being offered at PSC for the 1983 fall semester. Dr. Paul Fell, instructor, said the class will cover a number of areas, including comic strips, editorial cartoons, one panel gag cartoons, and caricatures. Fell said the students will also be developing their own cartoon characters. After learning the basic techniques, students will concentrate on the one area of cartooning they're most interested in. 1 The ciass will also listen to.

guest speakers on cartooning, view animated movies, and might visit the Humor Workshop at Hallmark in Kansas City. For a couple of years Fell said he has been recruiting students not only on the basis of receiving a strong art background at PSC, but also on the opportunity of studying under the only editorial cartoonist in Nebraska. Fell said the future of the course might include a campus ; cartooning magazine, consisting of "off-the-wall, insane humor." "But," he said, "we'll see how the artwork goes first."

The pro football leagues' rule keeping college players off their rosters until they use up all their college eligibility-the same rule college football defector Herschel Walker and the New Jersey Generals of the U.S. Football League· broke in early March~ouldn't stand up in court anyway, two University of Detroit_ law professors have concluded from eight months of legal re~earch into the rule. The rule "unreasonably restrains trade," contends sports law attorney and,teacher Robert McCormick. · Consequently, he .believes the· rule, if ever challenged in court, couldn't stand up.

McCormick and fellow-lawyer Matthew McKinnon began researching the question soon after Walker, then just finishing his sophomore year of eligibility at the University of Georgia, threatened to sue the National Football League for forbidding any of its teams from drafting Walker until he used up his four years of eligibility after the 1983 college season. Walker ultimately decided not to file !!Uit, opting to play another year at Georgia. But McCormick and McKinnon were intrigued with the issue Walker had raised, and, using Walker as an example, began to research the case law to see if the football and track star had a good case. They concluded he could have won his lawsuit easily. Walker's contention that the NFL-and by extension the USFL-violated anti-trust laws by forbiading their teams to draft players still eligible to play college ball was probably correct, the law professors say in an article to be published in a law journal this month. The main reason the pro leagues haven't lost such a case is that no one has sued them over the rule yet: Players, they say, are re.luctant to spend the year or so . on the sidelines it would take while the case was Qeing litigated. Some published reports say Walker threatened to sue the USFL this year unless it allowed one of its teams to·sign him. In any event,- Walker did sign with the New Jersey Generals for a reported $4.8 million, although he still had a year of eligibility left at Georgia. ·

Walker's defection enraged many college football officials, who predicted the signing would mean the effective end of the . current system. The NFL also protested the signing, saying it would interfere with athletes' college educations. McCormick, who teaches sports law at UD's law school, agrees, but believes the NFL has other motives for wanting to preserve the four-year eligibility rule. · The rule gives the NFL a "good, cheap" way to train talent, he says. "Why destroy your farm system?" But it would be threatened by any reasonable legal challenge anyway, he adds, because the rule seems to contradict anti-trust laws. To be immune from anti-trust laws, the four-year rule would have to be part of a collective bargaining agreement. But since college players are not NFL employees and are not covered under the NFL's collective bqrgaining agreement, McCormick argues the rule .couldn't pass a court test. The National Basketball Association lost its four-year rule to a lawsuit by Spencer Haywood, who jumped from the University of Detroit into pro ball when he' won the suit on anti-trust grounds. McCormick doesn't expect Walker's defection this year will cause any more of a migration of collegians into the pros than . Haywood's did. "It probably won't change things that much," he says. Only about six eligible basketball players a year now try to jump from college to pro teams.

Annual IA .Fair Hosted The second annual Industrial Arts Fair and Competition at PSC will be held Thursday and Friday, April 28-29. Kennard Larso11, coordinator, said 28 schools will be participating from an eight county area in southeast Nebraska, totaling up . to 500 projects on display. Projects will be 'judged on Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the areas of woodworking, metalworking, drafting, architecture, and automotive. The

judges are a .group of industrial educators and persons from industry from Iowa,. _Missouri, and Nebraska. A hands~on competition will take place in the Industrial Arts building during the judging period: Events include performance tests in welding and drafting, and dis~ssembling and assembling a small gasoline engine. An awards presentation· is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. in the HPER center when_ judgirig is



completed. Two traveling trophies will be awarded to top schools, along, with two scholarships. The. on~-year full tuition scholarships are to be used by students ' attending PSC .. who major in some area of the applied arts. Free open house hours for the public are Ho 9 p.m. Thursday, and 12 to 2 p.m. Friday in the HPER center. The public is also invited to attend the hands-on competition, and the ·aw.ards presentation.

"The experience of touring will be invaluable to the cast," Harper said. "The cast will not only have to adjust to different audiences, but also new surroundings and stages." Designing the scenery and furniture for touring was a new experience, he said, as the scenery has to be light weight, portable and fit into a van. According to Harper, the furniture designed in the Louis XIV style is portable and folds to store easily. The set can be assembled in Jess than 15 minutes. The $1 tickets to see "The Imaginary Invalid" may be purchased at the door.

Indiana Jones-the new hero from the creators of JAWS and STAR WARS.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to comment on the letter which was written to you by the' Peru State College Student Senate in your April 15 paper. Being a PSC journalism graduate and editor of · the college newspaper for two semesters, I know how disappointing it is to receive such a letter. It appears to me that" the senate d0esn't · seem to be thinking completely through qn their criticism of your paper. I would like to address the following points to them, or anyone else involved with. PSC, about the Pedagogian and how it is produced.

Number three: They said the news seems outdated by the time they read it. I doubt if they realize the editor must have the paper completely ready for printing (layout, headlines and all), by Monday noon. I am aware of how competantly both Vince and yourself have met your deadlines, but doubt if they are. I feel this responsibility is a big plus to anyone wheh they get into the working world.


Number one: When was the last time they looked at your masthead (the list of reporters, editors and other staff) and counted the number of people you have working under you? Number two: The letter never actually addressed what they . wanted to see done differently. AH they requested was to get the paper back to standards it used to be. If you have. possibly been lax on covering their organization that would have been a good place to include it. The front page of the same edition had senate elections as one of the main stories, I noted.

Number four: Since budget cuts have affected everyone, including tht; college newspaper, do they realize you are allowed . to publish only eight issues per semester. It doesn't take a lot of figuring to discover that with almost 15 school weeks each semester, a paper can be printed only every other week. Number five: Now I would like to refer to a · statement which was made about including information that doesn't pertain exclusively to Peru State. I wonder how many of them have expected papers . back from friends for the next day's classes only to be disappointed. That might be a good comparison .to help demonstrate the complete cooperation a person in your position needs. They would then accept the fact that iftherelsn't enough local news, an editor mµst fill his paper somehow.


Number six: I would like to encourage all Peru State students to ser~ously consider contributing towards their college newspaper. If a larger interest was shown, it would take much of the load off of your shoulders. I am sure you would Jike ·nothing better than to have a staff of 15 instead of six. In that case you could function as a manging editor, instead of a news writer,. photograph locater, layout man, headline writer, etc. Since I am no longer attending Peru, I can't be sure of the contributions the senate has made this past year, but I can only hope they have been outstanding after reftding their April 15 editorral. Don, in closing I would like· to say ~eep up the good work with · your limited crew. Maybe next year's editor will bave a larger staff thanks to _!IlY letter! . .{

P.S. In order to show. the importance the Ped does carry, I hope everyone also read the explanation on.cable TV service, the congratulations to Peggy Gibbs and the statistics on college financial aid. Without the college newspaper, how would these remarks have been heard? Sincerely, Darrell Wellman, Auburn, Nebr.

No, I guess they just First of all, they said that assumed that I enjoy putting it many of the students were in, which I don't., Next, they said that some of greatly disappointed in the PED this year. Who are these .Hmany the news doesn't pertain to Peru students?" And if they are so State College orits students and "greatly disappointed" with the used the Dennis Weaver stoPy as PED, why haven't they said an example. The story was not anything about it?

The end is near. Friends will come and go. Many will return next year, It is farewell Seniors, hello Freshman. But the same faculty and staff will 'return, all What I find humorous' in all of , but one. One, in my mind, who is this is that a certain member of by far the most outstanding man the senate is also a PED in his profession, Dr. Russell reporter! Why did the senate Stratton, Professor of English. have to write to the editor to After this semester, Dr. make their complaints heard? Stratton. will travel to FairNow the reporter I'm speaking banks, Alaska, where he has of is an excellent reporter, don't accepted a position at the get me wrong. What I'm saying University of Alaska. U of A is how am I supposed to put students and faculty do not know anything in detail on the student how lucky they are. Peru's loss senate in the PED when I don't is definitely their gain. They not get anything in detail on the only get the teaching expertise student senate? of a superior English professor, but also the wit and knowledge

that accompanies the' man, wherever he is. Dr. Stratton has represented Peru in many parts of the country. Becently, he had an opportunity ·to be a guest speaker in Atlanta, Georgia, but declined because funding could not be .allotted for him. Atlanta missed a superb speaker and likewise, so shall we. I personally will miss his wit in and out of the classroom. He seemed to take a personal interest in each and every student he . crossed, a quality many students recognized and appreciated. I hope PSC'realizes their loss and recognizes Dr. Stratton for his contributions to Peru. Hats off, to you Dr. Stratton, you deserve it.

The Veterans Administration reports a dramatic increase in the use of the GI home loan program by veterans. October 1982 figures reveal over 18,000 applications · received by the agency for loans with a 12'h per

cent interest rate. In January 1982, only 8,462 applications were received when the rate was 161/2 per cent. The current GI home loan interest rate is 12 per cent.

Loans .. Continu~d ment of Education spokesman Duncan Heimrich points out. "We're not really making any projections on whether the job market will raise the number of defaults," Heimrich says. U.S. attorneys in Philadelphia, Cincinnati and Los Angeles have gone as far as towing away the cars of student ·1oan defafilters.

And the Education Dept. last fall installed a new computer to help track down the estimated one million former students who still owe back loan payments. Such efforts won't unfairly punish "real hardship cases," Powell says, "as ·long as they keep in touch with the relevant agency and work out some kind of deferment plan."

Dorm Fire Lights Nationwide Fear University of Southern Colo.rado student Ross Sibley was asleep in his fourth floor dorm room on March 11 when the fire alarm first sounded at 2 a.m. "I remember getting down on my hands and knees and just crawling for the stairwell," he recalls. "When I got to the stairwell, there was a big ball of smoke moving at me. I just held my breath, said a prayer, grabbed onto a railing, and hoped no would be in my way." . _ Sibley escaped uninjured, but 33 other USC students didn't from what was the worst case of campus arson this year. .. Anytime something like the Pueblo fire occurs, we all hold our breaths," says Gary North, director of the Association of College and University Housing Officers. What makes it worse is that even when someone tries to kill 485 sleeping students in the middle of the night, college officials aren~t sure exactly how to prevent it. About all they can do is "install alarms and warning devices, and make sure-make very sure-you have a good evacuation plan," says Jim Elder, a technical specialist with the Campus Crime Prevention Center in Louisville, Ky.

Fortunately, -most campus arsons amount to "minor problems with deliberately-set fires, ranging from someone lighting a political poster to small trash can and dumpster fires," Elder reports. Iowa Wesleyan had two arsons in a women's dorm last fall. Arizona State had a similar series of small fires in a campus apartment building, and University of Texas-El Paco officials nabbed a dorm student last spring as he was throwi~g a · lighted paper1 bag down a trash chute. But there have been more serious incidents over the last year. An Arizona student set ten fires and caused $275,000 in university damage before being caught last spring. Oklahoma and Washington both had to evacuate students from deliberately-set dorm fires last May. Though no one has exact · statistics, Elder thinks, "the actual fireproblem on campuses is probably getting worse .. "As more and more kids live in dorms, and as more and more rules a're relaxed-like cooking, smoking and drinking in dorm rooms-::-you°}e going to have more fires." Cooking, he says, is the number one cause of dorm fires,

followed by smoking and ill-used portable heaters. Deliberate fires are "even more difficult to document," Elder adds. '.'Luckily," North notes, "Pueblo was the first bad dorm fire we'v.e s.een this year." He attributes it to better safety precautions. North says many schools started installing alarms and smoke detectors after several 1981 hotel fires in Las Vegas "raised everyone's consciousness" about fire dangers in large residential structures. Pueblo's "first" status, North says, "shows that colleges and universities have been making real progress in fire prevention." <CPS) "

Ladies Finish 3rd in Own Tourney In their first chance to play this season, the PSC Lady Bobcat softball team finished third in the Peru State College Softball Invitational T!eld last Friday, April 15 and Saturday in Peru.

PSC Enrollment Shows Increase ident of the college, said the recent enrollment increases are due to greater retention efforts, better programming and improved educational services to Southeast Nebraska. "New leadership in Student Services, now headed by Dean Jerry Joy, and new ideas and service perspective . brought to the college by Robert Baker, direct or of Continuing Education, are major factors in the college's growth," he said. "In addition, a general commitment on the part of faculty, staff and students have rounded out the total · college commitment." Gallentine forecasts that growth in enrollment will be a trend for the college and predicts a total enrollment of 1,500 students by 1987. He points out that even though some state agencies project declining enrolment for almost all colleges, he says this need not be so if greater retention efforts are mounted, programs are kept in tune with changing needs and colleges are attentive and responsive to the needs of their service area.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, I would like to take this opportu!1itY to ~ank Robin and J_eff S~1th for bemg and doing a fme JOb as our residence directors of Delzell Hall this semester. The problem with having one director is that he or she may not l;>e around when they are needed. Mark Sievers did a good job last semester, but he had commit-

tments (i.e. football) of his own and couldn •,t always be around. I don't blame him for not wanting to keep the job. With two people, usually one person could be counted on for help. I hope I speak in behalf of all the "zoo" residents in saying that I hope we find two people who will do as good a job and are as nice fo be around! ! Vince Henzel, Delzell Hall.
