The site of the opening game of the 1984 football season at Peru State College has been changed from PSC's Oak Bowl to Jug Brown Stadium in Falls City, according to Maxine Mebus, Peru State Athletic Director. The starting time has also been changed from 1:30 p.m. kickoff to 7:30 p.m. to accomodate both teams. The game was forced to move to Falls City High School because the natural · grass surface in the Oak Bowl, which was re-seeded this spring, is not in playing condition. 1 ' I'd like to thank Falls City High School for helping us out in this emergency situation," said Jay Adcox, head coach.

"The 9.0 scale is good eternally, but on a broader perspective it is better for students who wish ,, to. further their education," Sndyer stated. There are many positive reasonsforswitching to the 4.0 scale, but it will be a challenge for students, faculty, and administrators to all tackle together.

Peru State College is in ·the process of im·plementing a 4.0 point grade scale. to replace the 9.0 stanine scale currently used by the college, according to Dr. Clyde Barrett, vice-president. The main reason for switching to the 4.0 scale is to "aid in the recording and reporting of grades in a · manner more in time with other colleges," said. Barrett. Only two colleges in Nebraska remain using the 9.0 scale, Peru and Dana College in Blair, Nebraska.

I believe the college has done a great job making provisions on this campus for .the ·steady increase in enrollment. But I feel sfodents are ·not taking into consideration certain areas hit heavily with .the increase of students. Particularly the Bob Inn; 13etty Reeves is.a part of history at Peru. Her kindness and dedj&ation is known by all. However lately students have been rather ungracious and are unaware of the tremendous service they receive from Betty. I do not one time in four years that I .have not been greeted by first name and a generous smile when I enter the Bob Inn. On Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 12:00 noon I observed the animalistic behavior of Peru students in the Bob Inn.,, It was very crowded and Betty was working alone for awhile. Students were obnoxious, rude, and pushy. How many hamburgers can you fry in 5 minutes while making a . ham and cheese omelet and waiting on 6 other students? Try it sometime. The patience of that woman is unbelieveable. When alumni come back to Peru they head straight tp the Bob Inn because they know Betty will remember them. Betty takes a personal interest in students at Peru and I feel she deserves respect and kindness no matter what kind of mood you are in: There is a substantial increase in students this year and will continue to be at PSC. But it is something we all can live· with. So next time you are in the Bob Inn and see 15 people in line try to be a little more understanding and kind. Betty is just trying toge~ to know you.

President Loren_ Schrier

The fall classic of Peru State College is upon us; Homecoming 1984! On behalf of Student Senate, I want to welcwie everyooe to Peru State. 'For some it is a chance to look back, reflecting on the Homecomings past, and for others it is the chance to be a part of a rich tradition with a bright future. In a sense, Homecoming is much like this college, a long, glorious history and a bright future. For those returning to Peru State as alumni, I'm sure that many fond memories will return with you. For those here for the first time, take a look at us; we are going forward, just as we have in the past. Except now we are going forward faster than ever before. So to everyone, aluinni, parent, student, enjoy all that Peru State has tp offer, because what we are now is a result of many years of drea~ and history.

The last date to register to vote in Nebraska is October 26th. It is your responsibility as a citizen and as a student to \rote in the November 6th elections. We,as students, have a potential impact on national and local issues if we unite together., On Peru's campus there is approximately 1,200 students. I think you will agree with me that 1,200 votes can change the outcome of an issue. · Judging by the turnout in recent elections, about one of every two eligible voters will go to the polls on Election Day 1984. The, figure for the 1980 Presidential election was 52.4 per cent. Unless you and million like you become active citizens and urge friends and relatives to do the same, the dismal trend toward non-participation will continue. Those who sit out an election, thinking, of it as a "spectator sport," often find that 'their side ends up losing. And far more than a game is at stake. Those whom we choose for the Presidency and the Congress will vitally influence our domestic welfare, foreign policy, and most importantly our education. Dwight D. Eisenhower, our 34th president stated, "The issues of war and peace are too important to be left in the hands of politicians." This statement has .some truth to it. It is time we students should stand up and be counted. The right to vote is the most visible g.,uarantee of our freedom, I urge you all to regjster to vote. And remember, if you do not have a voter's registration card you don't have a gripe card.

Kimberly Comstock, junior ,said "I think the switch is great, Peru's grading system has been outdated too long.,, Rebecca 'Kofll's; senior said "It's about time Peru has decided to keep up with the times, it will make us more uniform with the rest of the college systems.,, Dr. Larry Caldwell, English professor at Peru State thought it is a good idea, however he is con: cerned with the minus aspect of the new scale. He would prefer the plus instead of the minus be used. He feels the plus would be much more positive and the minus is too negative. Mr. Lee Kohrs, computer science instructor, feels it's about time Peru switched over. On the lighter side Mr. Kohrs predicts that in two years all other colleges in the state will be switching back to the 9.0 scale and Peru will again be outdated. Mr. Everett Browning, English professor, also stated he thought the change was a good idea. Since all other colleges were using it and everyone would have a better understanding of it. The switching to the 4.0 scale will be a challenge to students, faculty and ad· ministrators but, hopefully all will enter into this change with a positive . attitude and it will be a challenge all can work together to conquer.

It is rather obvious that the Bobcats· are not quite up

to par in the area of basketball. But that does not give the entire campus the right. to become "~rm chair" coaches. It does not help the moral of the team or the coaches to have employees of this institution of higher learning slamming the coaches and the job they're doing. Anytime ofthe day that you people want to hightail it down to the HPER Center and relieve the coaches, I'm sure they would appreciate your expert advice. . This group is only a few select people. But one rotten apple spoils the whole bunch. The fans give enough heckling to last a lifetime, so the team really doesn't need ''arm chair'' coaches standing around the Student Center or Administration Building recapping the mistakes of previous games. I hope these people will realize the damage they have done for the morale of the. teams and will sit back in their chairs and watch the games, not coach them.

Welcome back. There ls a lot of good news to come back to as far as the Senate is concerned. First of all, the College has adopted a new 4-point grading scale, as most of your know. The Senate was successful in working for the grading scale we thought was the most beneficial to the students. Dr. Gallentine is to be commended for his willingness to list.en to the · students. On December 21, a conunittee appointed by · Dean Joy met to discuss the priorities for the ad· dition to the Student - Center. The list which was developed is totally in line with the student's needs, and we are looking forward to see development begin. Near the end of last semester, Patria Dangerfield and Loren Schrier attended a State Student Awareness

N.S.S.A. At Work

Meetirig at Chadron State College. All four state colleges were represented, and the open discussion was very interesting. One of the things which we found interesting was the fact that our Student Senate has such.· a good working relationship with the administration and faculty. Well, that is about all for this edition. Please keep in mind the fact that your Senate members are getting things done, and are always willing to listen to your problems here at Peru. Another reminder: elections for next year's Student Senate are coming up soon. If you would like to - dt be direcUy involved willi M the decision-making on such issues as the grading policies and campus development, why not run · D for Senate? 1

Mother-daughter duo at PSC By CAROLINE McLAUGHLIN

It's fairly common for college students to have their brothers, sisters, or cousins attending the same school as they. But how many students can regard their mothers as a fellow student? .Joann Hollesen, a freshman from Nebraska City, and her mother Alyce Hollesen, also a freshman, fit into this category. They both feel that attending the same school has made a positive impact on their lives, both in and out of the classroom. Receiving a scholarship was the incentive for Joann to come to PSC. It was then that Alyce decided that she, too, should make the comeback to becoming a student once again. Both like the smallness of PSC and the close distance it is to their home in Nebraska City. They both find the ET~, "Entertainment wi~ aTouch of Class", will be performing February 12 at . people here friendly and he King and Queen of Heartstlance in the old gym.

Letter to Editor

Tribute to;Brian Weber Today my heart had to say good-by to Brian· . Weber. No, I didn't know him long - just since · September. But in that short time his honest, unpretentious manner, his sincere open expressions and his guarded smile had · found a way inte my heart. · Apd I blinked back the tears as I pondered that· perhaps God, who had known Brian longer than . anyone - even Brian's own family, the God who made . Briah all the wonderful things thathe is, wants him back, has a plan, has'a life a thousand' times more grand than I, his college

teacher, or even his parents, family and friends could ever offer. Through my imperfect eyes, I saw Brian as a . diamond slightly in the rough. I wotlld have liked more time to have polished -. a few more debits and credits, a chance to have inspired a few more goals and dreams; then graduation. Our Creator, who sees throughmuchmore perfect eyes, must have seen Brian as a gem already ·highly polished, brilliantly shining and ready now for graduation. In my heart I would have

liked to have selfishly kept the Brian I knew, but in my mind I know that I, or anyone else in this world, can't compete against. .crystal rivers, streets of gold, gates of pearl, a perfect body and an eternity of unspeakable joys! So today my heart had to say good-by to Brian Weber, but my mind says, "Brian, you lucky boy! Congratulations! Graduation day is here for you! You couldn't have done better! See you."

New Alcohol Policy Do you ever wonder what process it takes to change ' policies on this campus? Probably not, but I'll clue you in on something. The students can change a few things around here. ·.For example, does it bother you· that Monday and Friday's classes start at one time, Wednesday's another time, and Tuesday's and Thursday's yet another time. It doesn't fjlzeyou, right. .. Well if it does, here is what you do. First Qf all talk to some of your professors. Believe it or not they all do not hate you.· Talk to them and see how they;feel about the situation. Chances are they· are not any happier than you are. Next step, find out who your Student Senate repre- · sentatiave is. Hard job? No. Every dorm has at least one representative. Tell them you hate the time your classes ar.e and that you'll kill them if they do not change them. A little harsh but it will get the point across. Senate will then in turn go directly to Student Affairs, and tell them what they think. Exactly! And if all of this does not change a policy we picket the Administration Buidling. So you see, ·you can change policies at Peru State College.

"Super Board" As college students we should be aware at all times what is going on in the legisl~,ture. But now is the time when we should be more than just aware, we should react. How, you ask. Well, in a variety of ways. There are four major issues that can affect Peru State College this ye,ar. They deal with consolidation of the Board of Regents and the Board of Trustees, jurisdiction of the institutions, and a bill to allow scholastic achievers to attend Nebraska Colleges at in-state tuition rates. I urge all students to pay close attention to what is happening in the. legislature. Merging the Regents with the Trustees will benefit the University only. We will be left out in the cold. It will be one large political debate to see who gets the budget cuts. You can voiee your ·opinion in these ·matters that . affect you as a student. Contact your senator from your . home town. Tell him briefly, but to the point exactly how you feel about Peru State College. Without your input Peru could be in for a very rude awakening.

The annual Concert Choir and· Concert Band tour this year will take place March 4 and 5. The two groups will travel Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa performilig various pieces at various schools along the way. The tour will end here at Peru on the eve of March 5with a final concert, according to Donald Freed.

Student Aid Cuts The proposed student aid cuts will be damaging to all programs. The severity of the current proposals would be devastating to students in Nebraska, and throughout the nation, according to Deb Chapelle, Executive Director of the Nebraska State Student Association in which Peru belongs to. The budgefplan calls for a.$2.3 billion reduction in student aid programs overall. Included would be absolute family income caps of $32,500 for students applying for Guaranteed Student Loans, and $25,000 for students applying for grant a,id such as Pell Grants and College Work Study. The proposal would also place a $4,000 annual cap on the amount of aid ANY student could receive. Think how many students at Peru will be cut out of financial aid. It is estimated that over a million students, nationally' could be prevented from receiving financial assistance. · As students we must fight this plan. Congress must hear from you, as a student, the plight it will be for you to attend college without financial aid. I ruge students to write their Congressmen and let them know how financial aid is your ticket to your future.

''Spare Us'' The State College Board of Trustees has voted unanimously to oppose a proposal by the Legislature's Appropriations Committee that tuition be increased 5.5 percent for 1985-86. Tuition at Chadron, Wayne, Peru, and Kearney state colleges has risen by more than 77 per<:etlt since 1978, from $15 .50 per credit hour to $27.50. This is a positive step for Peru State College. But even though tuition is low and our dormitory occupancy has risen by 64. 9 percent since 1981, there are some people in this lovely state who believe that Peru should be closed down. There have been two separate editorials in the last month referring to the "benefits" of closing Peru. So I have a wonderful proposal. Why don't some of you more brilliant students get together and comprise a wonderful excerpt explaining what drastic things will happen to the universe if Peru is closed. I'm sure the Omaha World-Herald would see fit to print it.
