by C8thie English The number one priority for PSC, accqrding to '!lee President Sill Snyder •. is to create a sense of· ownership for all programs on campus. "Whether it be students, faculty, administi;ation or alumni," said Dr. Snyder, "this is tf'teir college." Snyder. who began his' duties as vice president on JWY 1 , feels he needs to corl1munic~te to achieve this goal. Someone has to make decisions.. he said, bt,.1t .we need open channels. "People's opinions are via.lued,'.' stated Snyder.

The greater ownership. he .explained, was reflected in the summer's General. Studies Committee which include.d members of' the Faculty Association and the Student Senate. Snyder said these people were given a. chance to review. the presentprogram. Snyder, a Pawnee Qty, NE native, came to . PSC in 1 970. Accoroi@to.Kent Propst. director of.. Colfege Advancement, Snyder taught from. 1970-73 and rejoined the PSc faculty in.1979. Snyder, who earned his S.S. in history and his M.Ed and Ed.b. degrees from the University of l\lebraska-Lincoln, feels that his position as a former instructor will help to develop a better relationshiPbeween faculty and administration. 'lit gives you a certain amount of ci;edibility ... you ask p~ple to h~lP. e>ut/' he said. SnycteYalso said he feels that not all of the students' needs are being met.

"lf we focus . the commitment, .the Honors P?0gram will be top~notcb:" According to Snyder, it will give students the opportunity to stretch their academic limits: "tliketoseepeople perform, ... to go to their limits in

Orie a'f the exciting things assoc.lated with college life is the opportur\ity to learn new things. The Department of .Music at PSC provides opportunities for the experienced as well as the novice performer. One of the. greatest misunderstal'.ldings of many new students is thinking they ha music majors in order ta join a campus musical· organization or that they possibly won't be good enough to be included. The fact is that a significant majority of students performing in PSCmusical organizations are not music majors nor are they all virtuoso performers; anyone who has had some musical experience in high school is probably qualified to particji:;>ate.

The Peru office, the first of its kind iocated on a college campus, is of Telecommunications Marketing, Inc., a nation-wi<:fe company based in Dallas. TX. On Aug. 1, 1989, Pat Giittinger replaced Kathy Swartz as the head of the Peru branch; Prior to accepting this position, Giittinger had worked for TM! as a .TSR, telephone sales representative, for three months and as a floor manager for 16 months. ·On Jan. 1, 1989, she resigned her position at TMI to start her own business. ·· When Giittinger was asked to retum to TMI as Branch Manager, she was "delighted" to accept the Offer l::ecause, "It's an opportunity to work for a company I have a lot of faith in." Giittinger feels qualified for. the . jOb. because she works well with people and does not jµdge others bY whaf; she hears. She prefers to get to know someone and watch how they perform their duties, then make any judgements. She asked the PSC students to give TMI that same consideration.

State Colleges Need To Stand on· Their O\Nn by Mike McCoy When State senator Jerome Warner of Waverly presented LB · 160 before the state legislature last year, there was ··a.lmost immediate resistance. The bill's basic purpose was to slip Kearney State Cqllege from under the power of the State COiiege 136ard of Trustees and into the University system. KSC hadvalid reasons with whicb to bac.I? thts.propcisat, but $till the many questions left unanswered by thi"? bill were more than some people could swallow. There was uncertainty everywhere, as;one-by-one institutions in both the University and State O:>llege systems began to express their opinions and. question the whole idea of transferring KSC. The UNO faculty and administration along with the UNL student body. each spoke out against the merger. Even the University 136ard of Regents could not endorse any ·measure ttiat would facilitate a transfer. Meanwhile, rallies on the. state college campuses at Chadron and wa.yne each showed definite disagreement with LB 160's intentions., The'se objec,ions resulted in another bill LB 760 introduced by state senator Sandra Scofield of Chadron. LB 760 woµld have given each of the four. currernt state colleges the title·s of state universities, serving ~egional areas. The campus at

O"tadronwould hav~.been renamed Northwestern Nebraska State Urniversity; Wayne. Northeastern Nebrask;:i State University; Peru. Southeastern . Nebraska State University; and Kearney would have remained under.the Board of Trw;;tees as . Ce!'.Jtral · Nebr;:iska Sta'te University. The bitt was pressed/and support was. shown during hearings of the legislat;ive subcommittee on higher education'. chadrbri .S~te College President Dr. S;:irnuef R,;nkin and a goOd portion t:pe student body at CSC. during actual visits to the hearing and through satellite link· ups, testified in behalf of LB 760. ·


·But even though l;:loth LB 160and LB 760 each had ..their points, neither, in the end, were strong enough bills to carry a decision nearing this much weight on the future of higher education in Nebraska. Thus

Have you ever wished you could find a copy of a newpaper article you read a few months ago? Did you ever wish the New York Times covered more topics that were relevant locally or at least to the Midwest? Why is it only possible to find old newspaper articles in sporadically clipped vertical files. where they yellow a'nd crumble soo.n after filing? Now there is a solution to these qvestions. The PSC Library has abldEid a new service to pr;vide this previously inaccessible information. The source is called Newsbank.·A monthly subscription t.o Newsbank includes copies of newpaper article.s on a wide ·variety of topics in the microfiche format. Over 600 newspapers. including the Omaha World Herald and the Lincoln Journal contribute to this vast ''clipping file" on microfiche. Furthermore, five

Missouri towns, six Kansas towns, and six Iowa towns are also represented with ne.wspaper selections. In addition toa paper ;;:.,dex to the file, the Library has acquired an electronic index. Not only the thousands of general interest Newbank articles are indt-?xed on this CD-ROM disc. but also articles available on interlibrar·y loan from libraries subscribing to ...more specialized .Newsbank services. The· rapid. easy manipulation of computer searching opens up this whole new area of information for library users. The basement of the Library houses a computer with CD-ROM drive set up to search the Newsbank index.

tostucferitS1Whogo 1t9coliegestbl'at don't have "tough"• anti-dryg policies. Concerns· at/out students' privacy a.swell .as a sheer shortage of campus man'power. however, led som:e observers to believe·a big national crackdown or:i student drug'users probably won't happen in the near future. Colleges already have to have anti-drug programs in place,, Bennett said he wants them stiffened. Bennett defined "tough" as a program like that in Anne Arundel County., Maryland, where schools expel any stua;;nts caught selling drugs. Students caught consuming the stuff are suspended, and then turned over to the police. Bennett, head of the U.S. Department of Education during the Reagan administration and now director of the National Drug Control! Policy Office, said ~he goal of .the program was to prevent straight students from slipping, "down a slippery slope of drug use" and, for others. "to get them to stop." To get federal college loa:is and grants, students already have to sign a statement that they don't or won't use illicit drugs. Their school officials. moreover, already are required to have antidrug "programs" in place .

.•• The definition of an accepta,ble '.Program was so loose when' .Bennett rushed the requirement into law in 1987 that Ron Bucknam. then the Education Dept. 's drug prevention director, quipped that "a school.'s (anti-drug) program" could consist of a college dean standing on the campus quad at midnight shouting 'Don't Do Drugs ! ' if that's what the college wants.

<NDSU),forone,alreadyhas·"fuies to prohibit drug ;and alcoHbl . on campus." said Nona Wood of NDSU's student affairs offiCe. Wood. added "penalties depend on ~verity" of the off~riii&;;iE!nd may range "all .the way f;om·expulsion."

Inside Sports... Varsity Sports Need Expansion by Arny ·Snyder Peru State College is on the move. It is corning out of a period of contentment with a once mediocre status and is taking the steps necessary to move forward in many areas. A lot of hard work has been done to improve the student's academic surroundipgs and.. the College's comrnunity ..relations. The school's overall .outlook for the future is improved. With this constant effort and consistent success, the word is· getting out. PSC is a place to be proud of. It is my opinion that for an institution's package to be complete, every aspect of it must be allowed to grow. In this respect I believe that~he variety.of varsity


athletics offered by the school should be expanded. Athletics on a college campus are very i~portaht. Not only do they give students a physical outlet a.nd a chance to compete, but they <;ilso spread .~ certain . reputation and respect that. directly reflect the atmosphere of the school. Our current programs have done a lot. to recruit a m1rnber of st.udents 'and supporters. An addition of at least two more· sport;s co:Uld only increase those figures. Examples' of possible options are tennis, golf' swirnrnipg and track and fieid. The facilities and· equipment for these sports are already located on carnpµs. or can be easily accessed. in the surrounding area.

Additional costs such asuniforms and travel would have to be worked into the school's budget at an affordable rate. While l realize. \:hat this is not an easy task, I think the future receipts in the form of quality students and .boosted school spirit would more.than compensate. At the beginning of the week. I spoke to Dean Jerry Joy, and he assured me that the subject· of more varsity sports has b.een discussed at length. He said that it has been placed.on a list of long~ .terrn'goals for PSC. This• topic has come arn;:l gone many times in the past. But I truly believe that Peru State is ready for such , in addition. A lot .of positive things are being s<iid and heard right now, and a lot of people are becoming aware that PSC is f'.ar and away more thanjust mediocre. What better tirnie or atmosphere could there be to offer the students and the community additional programs that they i::ari be proud

Students Need To Exercise First Amendment by O"lris Denker The First Amendment has been interpreted as meaning that no government. federal or state, can place "prior restraints" (that is, censorship) on the press except under very narrowly defined circumstances, according to American Government: Institutions and Policies. The Peru State Times is a medium for the first amendment. The paper is place ·to inform, entertain and persuade. There are stories about sports. , organizations, campus events and meetings. There are various columns and : editorials.


Is there anything missing? Yes! One area that gets minimal input is Letters to the Editor. Why? That is the question being posed to you. The college paper is a perfect place to air out your concerns, to ask questions. or to give praise that might have gone unnoticed ha.d you not said anything.

Art Gallery's Location Is-Questioned by Cathie English There is an art gallery being constructed on the PSC campus. I want this college to have an art gallery. 'Art has always been a love of mine, and I am looking forward to viewing the works of many talented artists. I appreciate art and understand it. What I don't understand is why there wasn't more consultatjon with students and 'r~culty concering the. decision for the gallery's location. Various opinions .have been expressed on the PSC campus over the' last two weeks concerning the development of a new art gallery. Many students.and 5ome instructors have questioned the use of Jindra Fine Arts rooms 104 and 105. One rea~on for concern is the permanent loss of classrooms and in particular. the loss of the first floor classrooms for handicapped students. faculty question this move is the recent controversy over the lack of office space for aqjunct faculty in the same building. There are some who

may think it is absurd to create an art gallery when instructors need adequate offices to go about the business educating.


It is a state law that every building be handicapped accessible.

If the Joss of classrooms is a concern, apparently it i_s because of a shortage of classrooms. Yet there is a list of 24 classes posted on the floor of room 105, all of which have been reas~gned to different rooms in the Jindra Fine Arts. T.J. Majors or Hoyt Science buildings. This indicates that these classrooms were available. it is a state law that every building be handicapped accessible. Thislawrequiresan elevator if there is more than one floor~in a facility. The Firle Arts building has an elevator, although it may not be maintained as it should be. If

this is the case, then mainter'iance should improved.

Students may sympathize with aqjunct faculty over their lack of office space. Students know better than anyone how unnerving it·fs to share a dorm room in which you have to house your furniture. c:fesk, books and other personal property. They also know how hard it is to study wher;,i they are constantly interrupted by either students, loud music;, or an unco9perative roommate. Adjunct faculty do have a right to complaiR, but before

the building projects toward the ac;:quisition of works of art. Certainly, a permanent art gallery may become a drawing point for artists around .the country:· This, in fact, would create an atmosphere of culture and beauty· for the students, faculty, administration and surrounding communities. If ~here is a controversy concerning the new art gallery it is because there was a disregard for student and faculty input concerning the location decision. Students want to voic;e their opinions

PSC has approximately $16,00.0 to purchase art work from one percent of the construction cost of T.J. Majors. anything is accomplished, the students will have to take a stand. They can accomplish this by contacting the Student Senate. Students, in general•. would probably agree that we need an art gallery. It is in line with the philosophy of .t!-)e school to become a cu}tural center for. southeast Nebraska. There is an immediate need for this gallery in order to display the entries of the competitive Art Exhibit for the T.J. Ma.iors Building. PSC J-\as approximately $16,000 to purchase art work which was made possible by a state law providing one 'percent of the construction of

I love snow. This comes as no surprise to those who know me. Most of them JUSt think I'm crazy. But it's more than that I make sense of the world through analogy and symbolism and snow is my best metaphor..

Each individual flake is a unique perfection: one of the strongest, most self-supporting structures in nature; one of the most fragile and ephemeral. By itself, each is a special crystal capabl.e of reflecting light back upon itself ol refracting light into a new direction or diffracting light into its brilliant spectrum. Collectively those little· stars blanket the earth. Allowed to settle gently, they change the harshest landscape, softening, smoothing, sculpting. Driven by the wind, they chisel away at the ground and at the resolve of even the most hardy soul. Beneath that mantle there are no sleepers. Spring reveals the changes wrousht in winter: new growth, refreshed appetites and energies, a landscape at once more uniform and different. The promises of spring are built on winter's foundation. Snow is my metaphor for dreaming, for human potential, and

the possibilities of the future. These are, also the metaphors of my professioh. Education is that quilt that covers the earth, every part and parcel, mountain and desert-softening and sculpting a landscape both uniform and different. Education .suppfies the ··essential atr:nosphere for dreaming and the materials for building. It provides for each unique individual countless opportunities and energies for reflecting, creating, and for becoming a part of an allencompassing oneness with the world, without losing that priceless singularity. Now is the winter of our discontent in education. The critical , winds howl and push old snow1nto grotesque, crusted drifts or leave bare great, dark patches of earth. Here is death in winter'-when the changing is denied an<::! there is no new snow. But the season is still young. . Eager eyes and hearts are watching for signs of fresh snowfall, anticipating coming adventures. Before a future spring reveals what changes this winter has conceived, there will be the storm. Vast clouds · are gathering. Those who Will be teaching will be the transforming blizzard. Our snows will cover the earth with uniqueness and solidarity, the need to be one together, and we will spend our energies reflecting and bending .GIVE ME A CALL FOR THE FACTS ON LOW-COST AUTOINSURAl'\ICE

and ~reating so that new generations of people can see this 1;>eauty in thems~lves: Like the snow, teaching is always for someone else. Snow is not snow for its own sake. It's the earth's waterer and insulator and, CJS I've said, one of its sculptors. Teachers do the same, nourishing those they guide into the world, protecting them from its storms by helping each one fo become his or her own best navigator. Even the cold \s part of it. It's crisp, clean, bright, and keeps us moving. All charqcteristics of good teachers. This winter in education may frustrate us: blocking old roads,, stalling us out, freezing us into numbed ineptitude when we're not prepared. But it will also keep us moving: searching for·new roads, driving us to more efficier:it performarn:e, cracking loose the fossil shell of sameness.

·CLEP Helps Adults Continue Education Does anyone enj'oy exams: for students in the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), the answer may be yes. CLEP was founded by the College Boa rd and the Carnegie Corporation in 1967 to help adult students begin or continue their education. The program tests people on knowledge .acquired in a variety of ways--in school, at work, in the military or through re.ading and personal cexperience. Participants can then use the~Jr scor~s to earn college credit. CLEP participants can choose from 30 subject examinations in fields such as accounting. psychology and foreign languages. for Diane Aimone, a .secretary and mother of .three, taking 'the CLEP ge1;1eraf exams enabte her to earn 21 credits in her. first

These include career fairs, on-campus interviews, ~lary surveys, job vacancy listings and workshops. On-campus interviews for October are available for many fields for students of all majors.

The random smoking of cigarettes in PSC state b'uildings is no longer acceptable.

Inside SpQrts... Marching Bobca~s Put Pep in Home Ga~es by Amy Snyder· This season the Bobcat football team has got it all together. They've got a· strong line, an agile , quarterback and ari outstanding kicking game. Oh, and there's one more thing, they've got a pep band that will bring you to your knees ! Complete with a flag. corps, this ye;:ir's Marching Bobcats are building an image that will, rock the Oak Bowl for years to come. Decked out in uniforms of blue, the band has left it's mark· across the area. Its performances in both the Apple Jack and Homecoming parades and halftime shows have gotten people's attention. . While sitting at the Apple

Jack game, overheard a number of comments that resembled my own disbelief. "ls that Peru's band? Arei you sure? I know they have P's on their suits, but you can't count the members on your hands. And I can hear them clearly way up here. They must be imposters." But imposters .they are not. These Peru State students can play a rendition of the school song that finds even the most reserved spectator up and clapping. The discipline is obvious. On the street or on the field, they· move together like a finely tuned machine. Practice and made near-perfection. Out of the ranks, .. however, and half out of uniform, PSC's musicians provide one of the

most er:iergetic pep clubs kri,pwn to small college football. They cheer, they sing, they harass,. and they have a lot of fun. (They also give the rest of us something to watch when the game gets boring.) What more can I say? The PSC Marching Bobcats deserve a huge round of applause for their talent, their size. their cheers and their jeers. It takes a lot of work to put all of that together and come o,ut successful, Alotofpeopledon't realize it, but a lot more people appreiciate it. · So the next time you see a football player, tell him good game, and the next time you see a band member, tell him good show. ,Because a game in the Oak Bowl wouldn't be the same without him.

Letter· To The Editor Do a Little--Give Blood Students Comment On Art Gallery by Amber Faery

Dear Editor,

We '.:wP~1cr Hke to express our disgust over the article appearing on page 2 of the Qet. 13 issue. ln;,the article Cathie English manages to take a positive addition to PSC and turn it into a controversial issue. Her article centered on the new art gallery being constructed in room? 104105 of the Fine Arts.J;>uilding. Her arguing points are the loss of first floor classrooms for handicapped students, lack of office space and disregard for faculty and student input. First we want to say that we have heard only positive commeots about the new gallery. The idea for the gallery has been thought about for three years. Our first· year here in 1986 the entire art department consisted of . three classrooms and two offices in the F.A. building. Between semesters the art department moved to the vacant basement of the old gym leaving the 2 offices and 3 . classrooms vacant with the intention of using some of the vacated space for a gallery. Even with the gallery occupying 2 rooms. the Fine Arts still gained two Offices occupied · by Dr. Davis and Dr. Holtz and one classroom. now Julia Perry's office. AU the work done to convert the gym into an a·r:t center (painting, carpentry.

buifding studios. etc.) was done by the art students and professors. Again this year students· and faculty' are volunteering their time on the gallery. Due to this the· cost will be less than half the original estimated cost. Yes, the handicapped (and non-handicapped) students will loose two first floor classrooms but gain one easily accessible cultural center. The condition of the handicapped elevator is the responsibility of maintenance, not of the gallery. As far as office space i goes. as ml:!ntioned before,

there is more office space now that the art department has moved. If the gallery wasn't r:noving in would those classrooms be made into offices anyway? We don't believe there was a disregard for students and faculty input concerning the location of the gallery. What more fitting place than the Fine Arts building? Cathie English does state that the gallery will be the display site for the T.J. Ma.ior·s Competitive Ar:-t Program. an art competition with entries pouring in from as far as Boston. Mass. She also says it may draw artists from across the country, but she neglects to mention our very own art students. The gallery will .serve as a place for poetry readings and small musical groups. To graduate with an art

degree from PSC every senior stode.nt must have an art exhibit. Previously the work was displayed in the cases io the Fine Arts, but they couldn't accomodate ·sculptures or large. works. Now the art students will have an appropriate atmosphere in which to display their work. This will provide· a .£flore professional image for the students and the school. Peru has an excellent art program. We both feel it exceeds that of UNLin many ways. In our three years here we have seen the art program grow rapidly and have noticed as the facilities improve so does the student work and spirit. It wouldn't surprise us if in the future Peru attracts many more studeqts to join in it's progressive art program. We hope you attend the gallery opening, it will speak for itself.

Sincerely, Susan Arnold Jamie

On Thurs., Oct. 12, I went to the Live .Oak Room ln the Student Center where the Bloodmobile was located. I had never given blood before. so. I was extremely nervous! After going through the procedures of confirming mybfoodforuse, lwasready. I have to admit that it did hurt a little, but my nurse helped me immensely by talking the entire time. It kept my mind off what was happening. After it was all over. the .. Bloodmobile volunteers made

.me stay and eat cookil?s··they were very good .. and drink liquids. This .made me slightly angry becaµse: l was ready to leave ! I am thankful now that th'ey did this. because even after they finally 1et' 11e go, I felt dizzy and had to go home and rest. I wonder if I would have even made it home if I had left the. building right away. Looking. back on the experience, I realize that what I did. ~as a.good thing. It may have hurt, I may have been dizzy, and I may have had a sore arm, but it was all worth it. The blood they took from me will help someone else. My blood might even save someone's life.

'Quick Fix~ N~t Answer To National Drug Problem prosperous and powerful as "Quick fix.''. It's an expression which was born with drug use and the drug trade. In that context it referred to a junkie who, in his self-delusion, was trying to "fix" himself quickly with an injection of heroin. Nowadays, however, the expression is usually used in a wider context. It refers to somebody or something trying to "fix" a problem, any problem,. Unfortunately, the "fix" is usually shortsighted or selfdeluded.

ours, do we have so many people who want to entangle their lives in the .web of illegal


Most drug users are 18 to ~O years old and have jobs."

· narcotics? Undoubtedly, many of the users are disenfranchised people,.... often. from minority groups, who see little hope of making their way in the workaday world. Born into poverty and the crime-ridden area.s of our cities, they are often undereducated and. therefore, underemployed. They may turn to drugs as a means to escape or as a means to· thumb their noses at a society them.


Dan Holtz

And I wonder if our nation's response to the drug trade. no matter how much money, time and bureaucracy it involves, isn't, in its olA(n way, shortsighted. The sens21tional elements of the situation--the gangs. the murders. the millionaire drug dealers-receive so much attention that I wonder if we as a nation aren't focusing too much 'attention at the wrong end.




In that cont~t, their rebellion or their indifference is largely urider~tandable:. ·· Why s.troke as· society that has sl.;ipped you in' the face?

or accountant who has wasted his livelihood and, sometimes, his life ·on illegal drugs. And. again, we've got to ask, "Why?" · For it's ironic 'that in a .time when many of us are so. materially successful and comfortable that we're· disemboweled b)t this struggle. So we might ask ourselves, in. what ways is our society different from what it was 20. 15 or even 10 years ago? · Undoubtedly there are a number of differences, but one thatjumps to mind when I think of the problem with drugs is the disintegration of the family. America has more oneparent families now than it has ever had, particularly among minority groups. The crumbling of the family; however, certainly is not limited to minorities. as divorce rates hover at or above. 50 percent for Americans in general. Moreover, we now have more families where both parents work outside the home than at any other time in otir history. Children need stability, emotionally as we)l as

has so many ways to amuse itself. We have cable TV, video games; crn,mtless professional athletics. s.FlOP::J..mtil-you-drop malls. VCRs. f~sta~tomobiles,· private plafieif:i, private sWimming pools, hot tubs and you name it. We have ski trips to Aspen, gambling trips to Vegas and myriads of other weekend geta~ays. By and large we have excitement and escape galore.

Yet, for some reason, some people still want more. For whet are drugs but a means of escape, a quick fix. an extra dose of excitement? And if this rapid-fire. materialistic world that we've worked so hard to crea·te. is so great, then why ·i!lre so many turning on and tuning out? So I suggest once again that maybe we are paying too much attention to the wrong end of the problem. Criminals run the drug trade. but armies of Americans commit crimes against themselves daily, when they look for some illusjve answer in the guise of Illegal drugs.

Children's Holiday Has Celtic Roots

October 31. the day little. children dress up in crazy costumes and go trick or treating, is just around the corner. Many people may think Halloween is a day someone just thought up; well it's far from that. Halloween, also known as All Hallows Eve, was originally a Celtic fe:>tival for the dead which was celebrated on the last day of the Celtic year. Oct. 31. In earlier time in Europe, it was believed that witches, warlocks and elves would take the form of cats and would fly on this night.

It is at this time that some invisible force turns PSC girls into women of the grid iron. All fingernails aside, blocks are thrown, passes are caught and touchdowns are made. As a matter of fact, some of them play dow.n right mean.

Many of you may not believe this, but we've got some. se.rious, untapped talent.on th ts campus. Given a little' respect and a chance to do their thing, there are some girls who know how to do more' than just polish their nails. '

I thi.nk it's safe to say that most of the guys are surprised at the way their female dassmatescanplay. Caughtup in the excitement of competition, it becomes easy to forget which gender is supposed to be

It is during this time that the guys .on the team choose to throw. catch and kick the ball in every imaginable fashion. Crucial plays are.i:-elived. and at least five pseudo Super BoX1111s are won. Despite the tack of professional experience, these guys are experts. For the time being, their confidence is high.

Cats ·Dominate Westmar The PSC football team continued their first-quarter dominance. Oct. 21 by p6wedng to a 28-0 lead oft the way to a 52-14 win over Westmar at LeMars, IA. Nate Bradley had another fine game, passing fora school record 289 yards and four touchdowns. With the first quarter thrashing of Westma'r. the Bobcats have outscored their opponents 1 38-23 in the firs.t

period. More importantly the victory guaranteed the Cats at least a tie for the Tri-State Conference title. PSC's first scoring drive went 76 yards on eight plays with Scott Gerdes plunging the final yard with 12:41 remaining in the first quarter. Mark Whitaker also had a good day. catching scoring tosses of 65 and 6 yards and running 40 yards for another TD.

The never-ending saga of the PSC student in his desperate struggle · to i:)eat. three. other cars to the closest parking space available to class in the morhing, continues ...

So .with the . shortage of parking;Delzelland the . vincinity of the new lot, some Delzell residents are asking the question, "lf the lot.isn't being used,· why can't we park there?" Because. the lot was .anocated. to the commuter students because of need, and right now that's about the only purpose it serves. ·

If you're a commuter student and haven't either noticed the new commuter lot north of Delzell or are passing it up on purpose, it ha~ been sitting empty nearly every day since it opened in September. "We've tried to make the commuter students aware of the new lot. but it hasn't seemed to make any difference,"commentedJoy, "We've even resorted to putting.notes.

Before this semester it was decided that a set number of spaces and Permits be sold to accommodate each portion of the student body.

Student, Bill of R~ght,~ Not ~.µ~t An'Obligation, a Rallying Point '


by Spencer Davis Since I have assisted in dra · ing the proposed Student Bill of Rights, l was naturally dismayed to see the editor of the Peru Times attack the very motion of a Studeht Bill of Rights. But Per:sonal feelings are inconsequential compared to the fact that the arguments presented in the editorial are entirely insufficient tq support the editor's case. Part of the editorial consists of ad hominem abuse, which may be emotibnallY satisfying but is logically of no value. Even as personal abuse it is too implausible to be effectfve--accqsing PSC students of Olympian airs just isn't a believable insult. The second part of the edit9rial is an analogy. To be legitimate. an analogy must present at! the relevant points of similarity and all the relevant points of contrast between the two objects of the analogy. This analogy has not been carried out, The motion of a cdntract, developed to its full . . scope. supports the con'cept of a· Student Bill of Rights rathefthan underminil1g i.t. Students signing ~P for classes are not really in the position of a pi;zza cust~mer making a single transaction with no long-term consequences;· Tl;le studentis signing up fora coursiathatispartof a degree program and is making a decision with. many long-range consequenceis. The c<?ns'umer purchasing pi;zza .can ch9ose from a. number of local .vendors or can choose one of many substitute.s for pizzas. In this area PSC is for many pe~ns the only available provider of baccalaureate edU<;ation. . . . Pizzct is ayailable from a private seictor entrepreneur. PSC credit hours are generated by a branch of the state of Nebraska. The pizza cu~tomer pays the fullprice of the pizz.a. The student pays a part'of the cost of the college course. The hypO:thE;?tical pizza customer is interested in the pizza and nothing else'. The c9llege student is dften interested In activities at a college beyond the courses such as (i:!xtra-curricldar activities .and intramural sports, clubs andorganizations. The pizza .:vstomer can put down his money and leave ;as soon as h.e pleases. The college stuc;lent will typjcally have to be on campus and use C:af1Jpus,facilities .. The.factual case for equating the educational process with shoving plzzas acrqss th.e c9unter isJust not very strong. Cdnsidering all these points of difference,•college really .:anndt be compared to a one-shot commercial transaction. But if we think of "contract" in the wider sense of mutual obligations anc conelative rights, the concept of contract is.valuable; Wehave tb begfn by reco9hizing that the obligations of this institution extl;lnd far beyond just providing a quantum of credi.t hours--the college is committee{ to living vp :to its Mi55ion Stateme.nt; the college is conditions laid d.own by the NCA TE (National .Cduncil for Accreditation .of Teacher: Education) and North Central accrediting agencies; the St;a.te ofl')leb.raska and the federal government mandate many regulations; .BQard of Tnjstees' policies are farther obliga~ion::-;·:the coUege catalog is a commitment, The point of all these regulations is t() provide students an opportunity to achieve an education of real benefit. It is a.convenience to s1..1mmarizethe existing obligations of the college in the fqrr-i of a Student Bill of Rights. Surely there is nothin~ improper in.alerting students to their existing. rights~ ' . . , In another sense .a Student Bill of Rights is more than a useful summary of the existing obli9atii::ms 9f the college to its students. It is an initiative'. a possible rallying point for the students who want to insist upon a quality education at PSC .. I would hope that.the editor ofthe Peru Times would contribute to· this process by helping refine a student bill of rights rather rushing fo d~fend the arbitrary sway C)f the administration.

Dear Editor: Last August those PSC students who are on the me~I plan laid out cash somewhere between $610 and $490 for the right to be dn the 20-15 or 10mealplan. The management of American Food takes this expenditure seriously. We know that each bf. you or your parents worked very ha rd for that amount of money. or if you had to borrow through student aid. you will ha-,;,e to pay that. a.mou;,t back with interest. We know .you have the right to expect and demand the best possible service and product for that price .. The management of American Food. pledge to you that we intend to provide you with qur 'service and product in the very best way we know. We know that at times this semester all has riot always been as you might have expected or desired. We apologize for that! But, we are j:;rying our ,very best to get the rough spots straightened out. We will not be satisfied until thfs is done.

To dispel unrealistic expectations, may we point out the actual price we at American Food get for each meal breaks down to $1.34 per student. For that price. American Food must furnish you a l I th e en tree s . vegetables, dessert13 and beverages you can eat or drink. Please keep that price in mind as you judge our 'meals. We are riot suggesting· that the above price is an excuse for us to run out of food or beverage at any meal. But we are sayirig that we can not Pl;;flvide you the same meals you may have enjoyed at home when price and cost was not·; so restrictive or the same meal that you may be able to get at a restaurant for considerably more money. Our pledge is to keep improving until you and we agree that for the price you pay you are getting the best possible service and product available. George Morrison, Director, Food Services

Dear Editor: ' In the Peru State Times editorial in the Oct. 27 issue, the contributing editor seemed to jump to. a conclusio.n without taking her sunglasses off. .. . . For example, doesn't the editorial's autf1orthinl$ tne stu,dents of PSC deserve an updated catalog? The current catalog lists several courses that are no longer being offered. How can students structure their curriculum with non-existantcourses? In addition. many mutually necessary courses in certain fields within the same departments have conflicting times. Many of these courses are only offered every other year, making it nearly impossible at times for students to keep their,educ9tion on a prompt schedule, This would all be covered by the· proposed Student Bill of Rights. The proposed Bill of Rights would give the.students of PSC the right to expand their education through a wide variety of intellectual, cultural and extra-curricular activities. This is a valuable part of the educational system here at Peru. ln the editorial, the author said that "'students are here for the.sole purpose of receiving an education." lt is the opinion of many on campus that the intellect.ual. cultural and extracurricular activities are an important part of this education. The founding fathers• of th.e -United States wrote the

Constituti~m and the Bill of Rights as a guideline for the general populace. State and local government, clubs, organizations and the proposed Students BBi of Rights all use this guideline as a basis for their individual. bylaws and rules.

Amb.assador Continued From 1 Af'rica. "When I went into a rural area l could relate to the people by telling them l was raised on a farm." He said it•• was helpful b.ecause he could be empathetic with the black people. "It .was also helpful in dealing with the Afrikaan speaking people. many of whom were also from .a· rural background." While he was ambassador, Edmonson said. he insistedthat his officers stick to the facts, By sticking to the facts, he said, there would be no use.of terms that would destroy the possibilities of negotiations. He said thathe wanted his officers to use "nouns instead of adjectives," because the nouns or facts speak for themselves. Edmondson's career in 1nternational affairs resulted from a decision to take the foreign service exam instead of the civil service exc;im. He said. many of his colleagues. were assigned to positions in western Europe, but he felt challenge.d by his first assignment in Dar es Salaam. Tanganyika. Even though he has traveled all over the world in his career. Edmondson S<;:tid that his biggest limitation was the lack of for:eign languages. "Many .of my colleagues f1ave a vast range of linguistic ~bility," lie sa,id: "I would. have had a Wider range in the foreign service if l would have hand ,more linguistic ability."

"He's. a very positive advertisement for PSC." That's what Dr. David Edris, professor of music at PSC, said about Doug Henke, sophomore. Dr. Edris, Doug's academic advisor. continued, "Doug is bright, dependable, takes the initiative and is enthusiastic in what he does. He is representative of a lot of the students we see. at PSC."

On Nov. 3, 1988, Doug married Christina, a ·high school music colleague. Doug said marriage has matured him, "l can't think only of myself anymore." Christina, a freshman at PSC, is a business major with a music. minor. She said studying music.with Doug is ha rd because of the competition. but it alsogiv<?s them more time to share.

Fund Drive Successful A verysuccessful campus fund drive concluded with a 115o/o increase over fast year's gift total. $11,130 was received from 92 campus .employees. This compares with $5, 168 from 55 donors last year. One hundred sixty-seven support, administrative and affiliate staff were approached to give to the campus drive.

Doug is not worrying about the future right now. "I'm just trying to get my studies done. Music is such a ,broad field; teaching, performing. private studies; I'm open to whatever comes up."

Doug Henke

Doug is majoring in music education and piano performance. He attended UNO for one semester but was dissatisfied there. After talking t<;> a student of Dr.' Thomas Ediger, associate professor of music, Doug attended a Recruiting Fair at PSC. liked what he saw and decided to attend the Campus of a Thousand Oaks. Doug feels the move has been a good one for him. He thinks the instructors at PSC are great but overworked, and students should take this into consideration when judging teachers.

Along ,.\Nith his . other activities Doug also keeps i ·busy with PSC interests. He , serves on the organization::i1 ' board of the Multi-Cultural Committee and is involved in campus affairs. "I support the proposed Student Bill of Rights and\ hate not being categorized. I'm a nontraditional student, but l don't get any non-traditional information." He would like to get more involved in non. traditional activities. Doug spends his spare time working at Breadeaux Pisa in Auburn.

Dr. Otrin; who began the workshops in 1978, said he became involved with cbild abuse and neglect because, "I came from an abuse background and I wrote my doctoral dissertation on it."

Last Minute Heroics Lift ·Baker Univ. Over Bobcats by Richard Layson When I watched the Nebraska-Colorado game earlier this month, I thought I had seen the most exciting football game of my life, but for those of you that witnessed the Peru StateBaker game you know I was obviously'wrong. The Bobcats hosted the Wildcats of Baker University for the first round divisional playoff game on Sat. that ended up in a disappointing 30-27 loss. The 3, 183peoplethatsawthegamewatched Bakerconnect on two long passes to take Baker to a 14-7 lead going into the second quarter'. • In the second quarter, quarterback Nate Bradley was injured on a running play. bringing in backup (50) Jeff Ogden to lead the Bobcats to their next score and to cut Baker's lead to a 17-14 halftime deficit. In the third quarter Peru was shutdown and Baker opened up to a 24-14 lead. Peru came alive in the fourth quarter scoring twice. Scott Gerdes exploded for 44 yards on a punt return to cut the lead, then with time running out Bradley hit (JR) Garriet Blaii:- to set up a James Jerry touchdown. The crowd was growing impatient.

The alarm sounds. "6 a.m. I've really gotta hustle. I've gotta finish that outline, talk to Professor Jones, stop by the lab, read 100 pages for my noon psych clai;;s and be at work at 3 p.m. Today's college campuses are pressure cookers. In fact, the Nuprin Pain Report; the first national study on pain in American documented that more people 18-24 -suffer from stress and pain than any adult age group ..

As I've toured the country visiting college campuses, students tell me the most common causes of their stre5s are: too much to do, too little time; exams; money; relationships;

interviews: family career choices.


Stress: Bad or Good? So. get rid Right? Wrong.



Stress is neither good nor bad'. How you h.;:i.ndle it.can be .. Learning to make stress work for· you can help you / concentrate better and think more clearly under pressure •. have more energy, be more creative and , make college more enjoyable.

But many of us handle stress poorly. Some ·people pank: and .work too fast under stress'" Others procrastinate. Neither response is productive. and both are caused by what I caH "sabotage thinking"--common. reactions to stressful situations that . work against rather than for you. Two common types of sabotage thinking are "the gottas" and "the can'ts."

Gottas and Can'ts Let's look at the ~ottas and methods to overcome them. The gottas usually occur when you think you have too much to do and too littlE:! time to do it: "I gotta study for two exams ... I gotta call financial aid about my loan ... I gotta get a date for Friday night ... "

Stress for Pe a k Pe r f o rm a ,n c e

The gottas make everythinq _seem harder than it really is. •You get into the panic zone, rushing to get it all done. You walk too fast. talk too fast, think too fast. write too fast, eat too fast. You can't concentrate or think· cleQrly. You make careless mistakes. blank out on exams and forget things you already know. Everything seems like a life or death proposition. :

I was talking to juniors at U"C Berkeley who had a bad case of the gottas about a forthcoming exam. "I gotta get an A." he said I asked what would happen if he didn't.

If I Don't Get An A .•. "If I don't get an A, I won't keep up my 4.0 average. Then I'll never get into a really good graduate school, and then I won't get a topjob and then I'll never make a lot· of money ... " By the end of his discourse. not getting an A on this test was akin to his life being ruined. When he stopped and thought about what he'djost said-·that if he didn't ace this test his life would be down the tubes"·he started laughing, "I must be crazy." He was not crazy, just not thinking clearly or realistically. Manyofusgetthatway under pressure. This type of

desperation thinking makes us overreact and causes panic. The cure is to shift from irrational to ratidnal thinking. Do a reality check. When you get the. ·gottas take a deep breath, exhale slowly and ask yourself, "What is the worst thing that could. possibly happen?" "How likely is that to happen?"

···Not the World ..•

Erid of . the

This type of reality thinking puts the gottas in perspective. Sure, not getting an A would be a·drag, but it wouldn't be the end of the world nor·would it land this A student in the ranks of the homeless.

there's always going to be things you gotta do.

Remembering Vi~tories ..•



Looking at past wins helps, too. After all, he already had a 4.0 average, and had done well on difficult ·exams before. Reminding himself of his past success on similar exams helped him, relax and restored his confidence. Gaining control of your thinking will help to turn desperation reactions into peak performance actions. Learning this early in life wi_U l::>e invaluable in the future, because no matter what you do or· where you do it:,

Music A· Major Influence in Multi -Talented Svoboda's Life by Caitlin R. Lopez

Her professional career began at the age of 15, when she started to sing vvi'lfi bands in 'bars. At 17, Svoboda started an album with Crystalian Recording StudioinOmaha. ltw§lstobe ·· an album of remakes of country songs, but after the seventh song, she d_ecided it wasn't right and abandoned the album.

A wife. A mother. A student at PSC. This is Beverly Svoboda. No'l;onlyi5 she all of this. she is also a professional singer. In herthird semester here, Svoboda is working hard to accomplish her goal, a degree in music and. history: She wants to teach hjst;ory if her music career does not work out. But her .music:'· career seems to ·be·· ·doing fine. This all started when Svoboda. was 12 years old. Her father bet . her she 'couldn't . get in frdMt .of a group of people and ~ing. Singing was no problem for Svoboda. though she hadn't had a single voice lesson. She··wa~ const;aFl-tlysingin!;l. and the family eFtjoye_d hearing her voice.

The event wilf feature a massed. concert involving 13 pianos•and 52hands, Dr. Ediger noted. It is being sponsored by the PSC Department .of Music and William5on Baldwin-Organ . of Dawson. . · Elementa.ry school 'pianists 'through adults will be invqlved, Dr. Edi.ger promi.sed .. .The ton~ert will begin at 7 p.m. in the College Auditorium,.,,,

At 19, she started, with a band called "Mirage." For 5even.years Svoboda sang with the grqup . in various bar5 andclubs ..•ityy9sduring this time that she me,t, married and divorced her first husband. Two children were a result of this marriage. Chris is six, and Tiffany is five. This last May, s;he and her second husband, Bob, a PSC graduate, left the band. He was the bass player for "Mirage." He's now a K-12 B.a.nd/Music teacher in Fairfax, MO; where the

Svobodas currently reside. Svoboda's career has consisted of singing with bands in clubs and bars. She's decided, however, that st'Je wants something more respectable like stage bands at resorts. A major influence in her decision to go to college was the loss of a job due to the lack of adegree. In 1984 she. auditioned .•for a job singirig in the very resort where nine years· before she· sang beforE;! .her: first audience: Her audition went well, qnd .She was offered thefob. But the job was taken awc!ly from her · when it was discovered·· that she didn't h<:ive a degree or semester hours towards a ?egree.

So in the fall of '88, Svoboda enrolled in classes at PSC. A .few weeks ago, · ·Svoboda auditioned for a

part in Opry Land, a music th.eme park in Nashville. TN. People like .Barbara Mandrell, Randy Travis a_nd Brenda Lee have done shows there. Svoboda was called after her auqition and offered a part in the early season: She could not accept, bu.t she has been told she'll be called for a part In the summer season.

l.n ·addition to her professional life, she has managed to maintain.the life of a music student· here at PSC. She is involved in the College .Choir, the Swing 'l:hoir. ·· Ma~rigals and the College Band: All of. ,i;tlis requires early mc:>rning practices, afternoon rehear~ sals, evening performances .and overnight tours. That's lot for just one woman. but • Svoboda believes that "if you dream a dream, don't suppress it. That's wh& l makes you, you. Go for it."


College Street Parties Generate. Violent Actions. (CPS)--College street parties have erupted out of control on a number of campuses in r;ecent wE;!eks, causing terrible physical injuries in some cases and prompting observers to wonder why such partiers seem to have become, in effect, meaner. "Big parties have always been here," said Chip Mudd, a student leader at Purdue University, where police were called in ·to control a street party that had ominously grown to 700 drunken revelers in early October, "put this year· e

HLittle. Sisters" 'Banned ';'

CCPS)--After hearing reports of the fourth rape of the semester, University of Missouri at Columbia officials in mid-November banned alt "little sister" programs at campus fraternities. "The environment surrounding the little sister program5. makes it mcire conducive.. for sexual abuse or alcohol abuse to occur," said Don Graham, Missouri's associate director of residential life. ' One victim is a little sister, and another had been invited to .become a little sister. Three of the rapes occurred during or af.ter fraternity parties. Greek leaders say they are getting a bad rap. "The rapes weren't because of the little sister program. Guys would have been drunk anyway and would have done it regardless of a party or not," said Julie ,A.ndersohn, president of Sigma Pi Little' 'Sister program. "The problem of date rape

"The press seems to be elementary education major focusing on the greek system •. from Peru; Nancy J. Burgert. but rape and alcohol abuse is a problem of society, not just fraternities," added Jeff Garrett, president of Missouri's Interfraternity Council. "Banning little sisters won't change anything, said Wilson, whose fraternity does not have little sisters. "Regardless of the ban, the basic party scene on campus will continue. (The ban) will have no major e~fects," Wilson said. The ban is just one part of a solution, said Cathy Scrogg5, director of greek life at UMC. ''It won't .solve the problem, bYt it's a step," she said. Sixteen of the 35 fraternities on campus disbanded their Ut;tle Sister prdgrarhs in' '1981 when the National lnterfr'aternity Council discouraged them.

Glass Menagerie Is A

HeartbreaN '

by Chris Denker A drab and dreary apartment set in mid-1940's St. Louis is where we begin with Tennesse Williams' play The Glass Menagerie." The Peru Players presented a spectacular rendition of the play Nov. 16-19, in the College Auditorium. · The play revolves around the Wingfield family. Amanda Wingfield is a mother who wants the best far her children, Tom and Laura, but instead she alienates herself from them. Vicky Smith does a tr:emendous job as the interfering mother. She portrays a woman with southern ties through a believable accent. Tom is a frustrated man. He works in a warehouse, but his desire is to write. His mother's constant nagging causes him to stay out late. He is often berated by Amanda, because he has many of the same traits as his father, who left them many years ago. Andy Donow;in is brilliant as Tom. He makes the audience believe that Tom is not only a character but a real person. He conveys the feelings of a trapped man.

Amanda desperatEi asks Tom to bring sd

4manda worries even more about her cia\Jghter Laura, who possesses a physical defect that is exaggerated in her mind. This is coupled with the fact that she is extremely shy. The only thing that ls really important tdher is her glass menagerie. She constantly cleans and.cares for the gjass figurines.

by:Amy Snyder The closing of the 1989 football season came to PSCas cold and as hard as the weather that accompanied it. The Bobcqits were defeated 27-30 by, Baker University in a heart6ree1kiog c()ntest that. is guaranteed to remembered for many years to come.


Flashbacks of what could have been will be loog lived in the minds of everyone. .Fortunately, however, there ~uralso be the memory of the way in which this single game brought . together an entire campus in. an effort that can easily be qeemed victorious.

Good Things A lot of good things happened at PSC a.s a result of the game, and they are the kindsofthings that reveal the exciting future tha:J; ties ahead for Peru State. . An interview with Dean Jerry :.lov: 'and Business ·Manager, Ste\te ·Johnson, revealed the

large amounts of cooperation and hard work .that went into the hosting of the game.

When asked about the overall attitude of the campus going into the game. Dean Joy said, "The attitude at PSC is outstanding. Among th.e students, amon!;J i;!'l~ faculty ahd staff;··eve.rybqdy. If everyone .\Nasn't really pulling' together, 'we woulcin't have gotten the ball game."

Coll)ments Prior to Game The Times' reporter, Russ Waring intervie'Ned some of the players Friday, Nov. 1 7, before the playoff game on Saturday. :;5ome of the questions be asked were: "What was the biggest difference be.tweef1! this Peru football team and other team5'in the past?" "Why is this team. so successful?" and "What does it feel like to be in the playoffs?" Some replys were:

Steve Rasmussen--We',have; a weilbalanced team, with a kicking game. passing game, running game and · defense. We just put it together, and i think it helped us." After four years. we worked hard, and it's about time we got something.

Scott Gerdes--We have more of a m.esh. We a/I get along real well. We have a kind of a team love that I've really never-had with any other team. We play ftDgether well, and we keep each other· up· in bad times and good' times ..

The 1989-"90 Lady Bobcat Basketball team will be represented by (front row 1-r> Kim Horsham, Mary Miltenberger, Janelle Henderson, Stacy Williamson, Diane Pokorny, Sheila Sughroue, (middle r.o~ 1-r) Head Coach Wayne Davidson, Brenda Erickson, Dawn Carlson Laura Mandery, Becky Berg, Student Manager Sharlene Most, Student Assistant Coach, Chris DeMarque, (back row l·r) Marcia Stevens, Carrie Menges, Liz Jessen, Dennise Haverkamp, Staci Dennis, Jenny Polowy.

Jessen and IVlenges Lead Lady Cats . The selection of seniors Qlrrie Menges and Liz Jessen as co-captains of the 1989-90 Peru State College womens basketball team didn'*.come by accident, Head Coach Wayne Davidson said. ·· dtalso came as no surprise. "They're really the best and most obviOU?· choices we have," said Davidson. " the . past. both have demonstrated .. good leadership ability off the ·;floor as well as on the floor.

to help the entire team." Menges, a po'Ner for'Nard from Bennington, NE, and Jessen. center from Bloomfield, NE, were chosen by a recent vote of their teammates. Davidson said the new captains assumed their responsibilities long before the voting took place.


"Really from day one, they've done an excellentjob of being a positive influence on the team," he said. "they're smart players and I think they sensed that's "But in order for us to find ../vhat their role was going to be ·success this season, it will be ?'very important that they . this season." kontinue 1;o provide leadership As the only two full.time

La:st Minute Heroics ·From Pg. 1 working with 12: 12 left in the fourth quarter and seemed to "indicate some significance to the outcome of the game. Turnovers plagued the Bobcats all game and 'Nith less thatn 1;hirtY seconds in the game, Baker's quarterback connected on bomb to take Baker to the Peru ten yard line. From the ten the quarterback hit Leonard Jen~ins for: the score, and to take Bakertoa 30-27 lead.


Peru got 1;he _ball back. and was driving. Just then a voice from noWhere announced, "three seconds left in the game." With not much choice, .Peru had to try a 54 yard-field goal. The kick fell l>hort. but because of an offsides penalty. Peru's Rori Sflaneyfelt got another try. Trying a long 48 yarder into 1 whirling wind just missed and Baker ended up with the win.


Despite the Bobcats loss, fans from everywhere came out and congratulated the team. From the loo" of the field after the game it might look as if we had won. I think the fans just wanted to thank the team for an exciting game and a heck of a season. It was an outstanding gam~ and to end an outstanding season. To all the players and coaches on behalf of all of us that followed your season, were looking forward to seeing you next year. Congratulations and Thank You ...

starters back from last year's 23-9 squad, Menges and Jessen will also be called upon to provide more sC:oririg and rebounding pl.Jnch, Davidson said. "Carrie has been a tremendous rebounder the past two seasons, and led the Oistrict last year and even was listed amongst the national leaders at times," he said. "And Liz has been a.n excellent offer:isive rebounder and ran the floor extremely well in our fast break for a big pers<!n."

Pat Haxton--Leadership and the way we play as a team ... we're real close. everybody gets along with everybody, and . everybody pulls .. for. everybody. when they're on the field. That helps a lot..,

Nate Bradley--Strictfy, leadll!rship from our offensive line. From a leadership standpoint, they're very assertive and they help,rne_ out on a lot of calls.

"But this year, they're both -going to have to pick up the slack from the seniors ·who graduated." ··Davidson said each player's individual skills and.accomplishments speak for themsteves.

Well worth the drive ..•

Customized Textbooks Create Tension ·(CPS)-~Collegians may soon be buying "customized" <:e.xtbooks that might include bits and pieces from different books, sections of articles and even writing by their own professors if a new concept in.traduced by McGraw-Hill, the n;;ition's second-biggest college text publisher, catches on.

The concept would allow professors to design their own textbooks deleting unwanted chapters. and adding items such as personal notes, study guides and a syllabus. 'Textbooks," d~clared McGraw-hill chairman Joseph Dionne in announcing his project, "will never be . the same." McGraw-Hill's effort effectively would make "professor publishing" legal. Students and professoi:-s often create their owh texts, assembling parts of other peoples' work to .fit their classes, and then reproducing and binding them at campus copy shops. Ho.wever, without pr'oper permission, the practice is illegal. The Association of American Publishers has sued Kinko's, a chain of copy slfops, charging the firm has. helped professors illegally reproduce copyrighted materials for their classes. McGraw-Hill, on the other hand, woµld pay ' copyright hol.ders and, using software and typesetting technology developed for the company by Eastman-Kodak, prodqce

better-looking, more readable texts than the homemade, photocopied versions assembled on campus. Under the plan, professors would scan a computerized data base for what materi9ls they wanted from an original text, study guides and supplements and related journal articles. They could then add their own class notes and syllabus to create their own book. The firm says it can ship out the customized book--which would include a table of contents and be bound in a personalized cover--within 48 hours of receiving the order. The price, claims Sanjeev Rao, senior marketing director, would be about the same as a regular textbook, no matter how few books a professor orders. Normally., publishers' prices drop on! y when bookstores order a lot of books. McGraw-Hill would arrange all permissions and royalties for any copyrighted materials' used.

Ultimately, McGraw-Hill hopes professors will be able to order custom books for any class in its data base.


"This is professors have tol,d us they want," Rao

"Most teachers and professors complain that they can never find a textbook that really meets their class needs properly," said L Mark Stone of Henry Ansbacher, Inc., a New York-based investment b.ank that specializes in media mergers. "This ability to custon::iize textbooks seems to. address that complaint." Yet at least one professor complains it violates his sense of what a book is. "Whoever came up with this has never read a book," said Peter Fritzsche, a history professor at the University of lllinois in Champaign. He called the idea, among other things, "obnoxious" and "disgusting.'.' "Books are to be bought," he said, "not packaged." On a campus of 15,000 students, he said, a different title might be needed for everv single selection. Maintaining an ample inventory wi ch out over- · ordering, carpenter said. would be.almost impossible. Currently most textbooks that are overstocked can be returned to the publisher. Carpenter said, but it would probably be difficult to return a customized book, meaning stores would order the books that leave little or no room for changes in class size. "If a professor decides to let five more students (than originally planned) into his class. they won't get books," ·carpenter predicted.

Faculty Students by Betty Hechtand Elaine Henderson 1 The end of the semester · marks a milestone for PSC. It's the first semester when most of the full-time faculty have had only a 12-hour teaching load. Prior .t9 this semester. most of the full-time faculty had taught 15 hour~ ~r more per semester. ln practical terms, this means that a professor now teaches four threechour courses instead of five per semester or that a professor teaches three. three-hour courses and spends the additional three hours• in student instruction, such as directing plays or marching band. The general feeling on the PSC campus by .the administration, faculty and students about this change is a positive one. The 12-hour load, which is

12-Hour Raise Questions standard in the college teaching profession, according to most of the faculty and administration interviewed. will allow more faculty mqre time to prepare for classes. to meet individuallywith students for advising and to keep current in their field. When commenting ;,,bout the. 12 hour load. Dr. Spencer Davis. associate professor of history, said, "On the surface, I think it's a matter of justice. The 1 ;2-hour classroom teaching is a standard load. PSC is staying in step with other (similar) institutions." Dr. Jerry Hanson, chairman of the division of education ;and. psychology, a'greed saying, "NCATE ( Nationa.1 Council for Accreditation of Te;acher Education) calling for a 12 hour load is simply addressing those institutions which are not in the.

It ;allows them more time to do scholarly activities. which translates into better course work. It allows more time to prepare and' do a better job of community service activities." In addition, the faculty will have more time · to spend on the ongoing , pro1;ess of curriculum evalua- · i tio."l and monitoring of pro;:irams. according to Dr. ! Hanson and Dr. Gallentine. A concern raised by the 12hour load pertains to the decrease in ·classes offered. Jack Hamilton, assistant professor of business, said, Continued on Page 3



Cooperation Aims to Attract Employers. Eight colleges in Nebraska have formed a consortium to atti;-act major c.ompanies to interview graduates: Bellevue, College of St. Mary; Concordia, Dana; Doane, Hastings, Midland and Peru. Placement directors have found that empfoyers with limited recruiting budgets and limited recruiting time simply cannot get to all of the college campuses in Nebraska, even though employers are very interested in the quality of graduates from small schools. Furthermore. each school alone cannot. fill a slate of

candidates, thereby giving recruiters further evidence that they cannot afford to visit individual campuses. Consequently, the placement directors from the eight colleges have approached (either in person or by phone) all the employers who interview at UNL. Thirty-five companies, to date. have expressed an interest in the consortium. The interviews will be held in Omaha at College of St. Mary or in Lincoln at Southeast Community College. The interviews will follow a fivestep format.

To date two interviews have been scheduled. One is with State Farm Corporate Headquarters in Bloomington, IL , a company that has already been to Peru. The recruiter is a Peru grad, Boyd Marquardt. who suggested the idea for the consortium. Gndy Sayer, a 1988 graduate., is working at State Farm in the data processing department. Math majors and students with 12 hours in computer are encoura~ed to sign up. Four Peru accounting students have been flown to 81.o.omf.ield for se·cond

·Women/Minorities Needed by Cathie English PSC does not have an adequate representation of women or minority faculty, according to Vice President William Snyder. Faculty and students also feel there are not enough full-time instructors. Dr. Snyder said he would like to have more women and minority faculty. He said, "We'd like to see a reasonable mix, but the reality is we don't get many applicants." He stated it is reasonably rare to get women applicants and even more rare to get minority applicants. Snyder asked, "How do you develop a strategy to attract women ,and minorities to a rural environment?'' Snyder.said at present he did not have a plan or strategy. but he hoped to develop one within.the next year. Ms. Nancy Emerson, instructor of social work/sociology said, "We dori't have enough women instructors ...our Student Bill of Rights states that we need more women and minority faculty." Emerson said an institution cannot expand these ideas without a diver5e group of instructors. She also said.she thought the majority of women have been in education. "We pigeon-hole them into certain areas." Two students commented that theilfaculty problem is not just a lack of women or minority faculty, but a lack of full-time faculty. Leland Lockard.junior. stated. "We.need more full-time professors. The student population is going up, so we need a better student-teacher ratio." BettV Hecht, a transfer student from Seneca, KS said that as a PSC English major she hasn't had a woman teacher yet. "f think there should be a woman in Continued on Page 3



Expanding Sports Means Adding Flavor

Enjoy Christmas Scenery by Hank Behling.

by Richard Layson II! Why could'n't PSC's future be a great day on the courts, on the mat, around the track or even on the green? Think about it. A high school senior or a student at another college saying to themselves, "Hey, Peru State College sounds like a great place to go. l me'3n not only do they offer a great education, but they also have a nationally ranked football team, and solid men's and women's basketball teams, women's volleyball and softball. and a great baseball program as well. But where's Peru, and I heard that PSC doesn't have that many students. In my opinion the sports mentioned above are kind of like the four basic food groups. 'Everyone needs. them, but it's sure nice to have a Snickers once in awhile. What r mean by that is, tennis anyone? A trip around the track or a roll on the mat? I. mean wrestling. I'll give it straight; I want a tennis team, and I've talked to

other students who would love for Peru to take on some new sports. My objective in this article is ·to point out that J1'10re sports could increase the enrollment at PSC. .• Peru has had track and wrestling in the past, but they just didn't work out. /The reason was the 9'tate had td cut back. You see athletics are paid for by the state; every department has. a budget. The state had to make a cut back in 1986 so the sport or sports that were not aba5ic food group got axed. l spoke with Tom Shea, athletic director/football coach, and I asked about the possibility of some new sports. "It's an exceltent possibility." Track is what . looks like a priority sport· Track and cross country need about 50-80 people fora good team. He also mentioned golf, and that other game. what's the name Agassi, no tennis. Alright tennis, the word (Peru tennis) 9lone is going to attract more students.

What has to happen coach? "First off, there has to be interest." Well then that is up to us guys and girls; get interested. "You also have to look at competition. Is there going to be enough competition to play other schools." In getting sports, Peru may also




need to get new facilities. For example, ·we have an indoor track but no outdoor track. We would need to work something out with Auburn or Nebraska Oty. Cash flow is also a major consideration. First, we would need more money from the state, and we would need to hire more faculty as well. To me, I don't like things too complex. What used to make serise to me before speaking with Tom Shea was more students, more money. Right. That may not be the case, but as far as I'm concerned, I'll buy my own little yellow fuzzy balls and see you on the courts.

Nemaha County Considered

Nuclear Dump Requires Several Tests by Daw11 Waskowiak

What is the first thing you think Christmas?

'bf when somebody says

One thing many think of is receiving gifts. Young children to college age people are wondering what they will get. What will be under the· tree? A new toy that can perform several different tricks and empties Dad's wallet? Or will there be a dozen roses from your "Honey'? Well I don't know what's under your tree. l do, howeve.r, l'.;now what's under Glenn .. Kirchhoff's. Glenn \s a retired 'man who Jives just nor;th of the Hwy 50 and Hwy 34 interchange. And what's under Mr. Kirchhoff's tree is his whole farmstead. You see, Mr. Kirchhoff puts up lights all around his"farm. These lights cover more than just his house .and trees; they cover giant sculptures in the front yard too. Made out of junk metal and the sweat of Mr. Kirchhoff's brow are Wily E. Cdyote, the Road Runner, a dragon and a few others. These sculptures are lit in certain places to make them appear to be alive. · When I last talked with Mr. Kirchhoff, he said that his display might be a little smaller t;!lis year. He also noted that one of his neighbors, Kerby Drake has a good display this year. Both"of these gentlemen have worked v. ·ry hard in creating their displays. There are also m:3ny other light displays around that area. So, if you don't get your new toy or your dozen roses this year, take a spin by the Hwy 34 and Hwy 50 interchange. There's plenty of scenery for all to enjoy.

Do you know what Nuckolls, Boyd and Nemaha counties all have in common? Well, if not, I'll fill you in. U.S. Ecology wants to place a nuclear waste dump at one of the three locations named above. This might be good idea for Nemaha county in that it will bdng in more people, because of more job opportµnities.


But, on the other hand, if the decision was made to place the dump in .Nemaha county and something ·would go wrong, a large 'liability suit could be brought against the state of Nebraska. To this date there have been no decisions made about where the dump will be located. There are many sfudies that. have to be conducted before the decision of where to place the dump is made. Some of the tests that have to be completed are geological, hydrological and metorlogical tests on the earth and the air that are found at the locations. · The dump will be made of grade structure concrete, formed into cells, and those cells are where the waste will be placed. The grade of the waste placed in the cells will be grade A waste, which is the lowest radio active waste. Two other ciasses of radio active waste are Band C. Class C is the highest radio active. levE;!l of all three classes. The dump would be active for a maximum of 30 YE!ars or until it reaches full capacity of five million cubic feet. Once the dump is full, or the 30years have run out, it is then covered with clay, sand and soil. The area will be fenced in and will not be used again. ·

Instead of raising the parking permit rate to build a parking lot for commuter students who really don't use it, PSC should have utilized i.ts funds to .pave the Centennial parking lot with line markers so students would kno.w how and where to park. If you do not feel this is a realistic idea, just talk to some of the students who live at the complex. You'll get an earful.

Parking at a PSC parking lot is always a true adventure, but trying to drive through one of the lots without running into another car is a hazardous experience. As I drive around the campus, I see cars parked bumper to bumper, and it isn't a pretty sight. The lots almost look like upgraded junk yards. Take for instance the Centennial Complex's gravel parking lot; you ·know the one. It starts out as a bumpy mountain that eventually levels out into a confusion of gravel and randomly parked cars. No one knows just how to park. and consequently cars are hit or scratched when one tries to round1a comer. back out or park. Now I know that some of the problem stems from the student driver~~but l also happen to know that not everyone owns a small compact car. You can't fit a st1iP into a sardine can--it~s as simple as that. ..

Would you like to be a part of these and other endeavors in academic achievement? You can! There is a wide variety of campus organizations in both extra-curricular and academic areas eager for your involvement.

A person can no longer look at college as a solution to their need for training in their careers. (I say careers because it is estimated that a person will change careers seventimes before he or she retires.) Instead a person should be using their time in college to develop the skills needed for life-long learning. Some of these ideas can be seen in .the new general

education requirements for writing and mathematic skills across the curriculum. .A.s a librarian, I hope the reading. writing and research skills learned in college will continue to be used throughout a student's life, but these interests must be cultivated now.

Honors Program Orie program which students interested in academic challenges should consider is the PSC Honors Program. This program is described in detail in the college catalog; but briefly it is a selection of courses created to stimulate thinking in new. areas arid perspectives. It begins with an interdiciplinary course, entitled 20th Century Issues. Students interested in further information on this program should contact Dr. Tony McCrann, the Honors coordinator. l would like to·challenge all PSC students to get involved in all areas of can;ipus life. In short, be all that you can be ... at Peru and in your future.

by Hank Behling "We don't feel bitter. we· just wa,-it better P?Y and recognition of the job· we're doing at PSC," says Mrs·. Sara Crook, an adjunct faculty member in social sciences. Mrs. Crook made these comments in connection to a proposal written by the adjunct faculty at PSC. The proposal, endqrsed by the PSC fac;ulty association. would increase the flat rate pay of the acljuncts. This proposal was presented to Dr. Snyder, PSCvicepresident. Dr. Snyde~ must now take up the proposal with Dr. Gallentine, PSC president, if somethiog is to be done.

The"proposal, along with the flat· rate increase, includes extra pay for senior adjunct faculty. adequate office space, and inclusion of acljunct faculty in the college catalog. The acljunct faculty haven't had a pay increase since before 1984 said Mrs. crook. Their present flat rate is $300 per credit hour. If a particular teacher has a 12 credit hour per semester load, which is maximum, the salary"'' for the school year would only be $7,200. said Mrs. Crook. Mrs. crook also noted that the acljunct faculty are not'" included in the health or retirement plan at PSC.

Dr. Spencer Davis, associate professor of history, said the · Humanities pivision fried to hire a woman for the English department. He said· that PSC could not attract any of the three candidates to. this area. Davis also said there is a shortage of fUll-time faculty. According to Dr. Esther Divney, professor of education, it is J::!.?:f: a .matter of whether instructors are women, minorities or men. "What matters," she said, "is whether you know your topic. As Jong as you're a good teacher and you have a special intere?t in your topic." Divney said women haven'thad as many opportunities as men to show their capabilities. She also said . there are l"IOt enough full-time teachers. She felt full-time faculty really make the college. "Adjunct faculty don't have the · possessive spirit that knits the college together. We r:ieed full; time faculty who care about it and who will tend to it."

"It increases the amount of time a student mus spend at . PSC to get a degree in this area .because of lack of faculty. It forces students .to take weekend classes, night classes and summer classes in addition to an already full schedule," said Gilson. The issue oflack of faculty fs· a concern. "Peru has grp,wn so much with Dr. Gallentine. and there haven't been instructors hirep for the increase in

Dr. William Snyder, vice president at PSC. sees the hiring of additional adjuncts. however, as ..;;· possibility. since the funding is not available for the hiring of permanent full-time faculty. So, while there is a need for the fecluction in faculty work loads, questions are raised about the needs of the students and PSC. With

increased growth in the student population and a decrease load by faculty, how will the students be able to get the~ classes they need? Who is going to teach those classes? Exactly how big are classes going to. get if new faculty aren't hired? Are faculty workloads going to be increasfi!d by more independent st\!.idies? If so. where will. that time come from? Will the variety of non-elective courses be severly reduced causing gaps in the education of the students?

As of Nov. 30, they• v e c ha Ike d up a n impressive record of 8 wins and 1 loss, (and that loss came against an NA!A Division II school). Head Coach John Gibbs believes that this success is a direct result of two major strengths. "Our kids have really played well together and worked very hard. There are teams in the area with better talent, but we are able to make up for any deficiencies by doing what we have to do to win." "So far this season we've done an e,xcellent job of doing that." ..

Pressure Situations If you've seen the Bobcats play, you may think this an understatement. You see.iJhe team is getting quite a reputation for their ability to come back from behind. Way behind, as the case was when

the Cats came from a deficit of 1 7 points with two minutes and 33 seconds left to beat Bellevue College and become the 1989championsofthe Peru State Tournament. According to Gibbs, the team spends a lot of time practicin!J just those types of situations. He believes that this has built the team's confidence level and has allowed them to handle pressure situations effectively.

Unity Also contributing to the_ir success are feelings of unity and strong leadership throughout the squad.

Sixteen Years Ago Today ... O.J. Simpson of Buffalo became the first pro football player ever to rush moi~e than 2,000 yards in a season. Four other players topped the 1.000-y;;rd mark. The offensive surge by runners has been credited to the increasing use of,zone defenses. which discourage fong passes. There is no telling how many more yards Jim Brown of the Cleveland Browns might have gained undewthe increased use of the zone defense.

Lady Cats . Split Games by Amy Snyder The Lady Bobcat basketball tea.m increased their record to 6 wins and 1 loss this past weekend with a pair of home court matches. Hosting Dana College on Dec. 1, the PSC team soundly defeated their vi~itors with a score of 64-48. $enior Marcia Stevens came away with a team high 14 rebounds, while sophomore Michele Marschman added 9.

Ma.ry Miltenberger. Dawn. Carlson, Janelle Henderson and Menges were. each credited with two assists.

The following night the Lady Cats were defeated by


Simpson College. Things never quite came together for PSC, and the game ended in Simpson's favor, 63-60. Stevens was out in front once again with 24 points, but rebounding was very evenly spread. Adding 14 rebounds each were Stevens, Carrie Menges and Liz Jessen

Stevens also lead in scoring with a total of 1 7 points. Second in scoring was Liz Jessen with 11 .

Well worth the drive ...

The PSC team will be on the road this week with games at Concordia and Doane. They will return to the AWAC on Dec. 9 to host Midland-Lutheran College. The contest begins at 2p.m.
