The start ofa new year

Peru State We starred our 125rh year as different individuals, each searching for our own ideas and striving to fulfill our own goals. Our goals differed, bur the end was the same. No m atter what career choice we mad e, our wish was to succeed and mature into well-rounded individuals. The experiences of rhe upcoming year will dramatically change ou r ourlook of ourselves. We will no lo nger see ourselves as mere individuals. The people we meet, the classes we rake, rhe faculty we hear all affect rhe plans we make for our future. These facts will not become reality unril yo u are able ro look back on them . For a majority of you, it will be a while, bur for myself and others, we understand what the last fo ur years have taught us. Look past the first day jitters. Enjoy your early college days. Roommates are nor family, it takes rime ro adjust - rake rhar rime ro get ro know them, it might be worth your rime. And finally, no t all classes are easy. Study and work hard to be the best person you can be. Always remember, you are nor alone. Everyone on campus is there to help you. They will help you al l they can because, believe it or nor, they have been there roo. - Michelle Summerlin

S

tarring college can be an intimidating experience for anyone. After all, this represents a long-term commitment; the decision to pursue a career and make something of one's self. As freshmen, one quickly finds out this is a do-for-yourself proposition, and the only way you're going to succeed in college, and eventually in life, is to take matters into your own hands. For most, the first year of college is a period of transition, while for others it is a rest of their new found freedom. By rhe year's end, the freshmen had shed their shy looks and taken enough steps to reach their next step.

ollege. life begins to take a pecu li ar turn for mo st juniors. Th ey begin to underst and the real reason for coming to college-a diploma-and start to focus their attention to that not-so-distant goal. Two words are added to their vocab ulary-degree requirements. T h ese are now students, who a year ago, did not know what a resume was. Now, they are dusting off their college catalog. Students have built trust and respect with fac ulty and staff m embers. They can now breathe a sigh of relief, and look forward to a very hectic senior year.

The year wi ll b e fill ed with many activities: upper-level classes, internships, research papers, finals, and thoughts of searching for a real job. Our training at PSC has taught us so many things. It has prepared us to think and do for ourselves . It is o nly appro priate to remember the facu lty, staff and others who are responsible for the knowledge we have atta in ed.

T his is the end of Peru State's recognition of its ! 25th year. T his college has been a godsend for a lor of people over those 125 years. lt has educated them and sent rhem out to make things better. It has taught them a set of values that arc an important part of any education. lr has done rhar for you roo. I don't want you to try ro remember all t he facts you have been taught here. You wouldn't succeed at it anyway. bur yo u should nor try. Some say that real education is whar is left when you have forgotten the derails you have been taught. Bur remember rhrce rhings that I hope you learned here: Remember how to ask questions. Look at what is fam iliar and at what is unfamiliar and ask stubborn , simple questions. Education is the arr of problems solving. Remember how to express yourself- lucidly, forcibly, gracefu lly. in speech and on paper. Education is the an of self-expression. Remember how to tell the difference between what is good , not so good. and bad. Education is lived moral values. Be sure. class of '9.3, that you have a set of strong values and that you usc them. If you don't , then all the ~ ki ll, you have learned here at Peru Stare will be too little to get you through life with success and happiness. - D r. Burm ' graduation <pccch

Alpha Chi is the honorary scholarship society. The members of Alpha Chi must maintain high academic standards. They believe in truth and character. This is symbolized by their official colors. Sapphire blue depicts truth. Emerald green repre- · sents victory. Together, these colors, along with gold (knowledge), is the basis of this learned society. Alpha Chi also has their own song. Inductees and old hats sing the song during the induction ceremony. The honorees were inducted by sponsor, Dr. Edris. The induction ceremony was held in the Fine Arts building in November. As seen in the photo below, members hold a candle. Like gold, a candle is the symbol of knowledge, something every member must hold near and dear to their hearts . Members, Trace Beusig, Barbara Balm, Robin Anderson, and joan Christen stop to pose for 11 photo before returning to their daily routine.

B OBCAT'S DREAM SEASON

Coach Gibbs led his ream to a 27-6 record. In doing so, the 1992-93 basketb all ream accomplished records that will go down in history. They include rhe first NAIA bid in 27 years, most victories in a season, an 18-game win streak, and the highest raring in school history, No.5 . Peru defeated Concordia in the District ride game, only robe defeated by William Jewell in the quarterfinals of rhe NAIA Division II national tourney in Nampa, ID. Success came from their experience and talent. Six players were returning lettermen from last years squad. Also, the "dynamic duo" of Fredd Ward and Ivan Wineglass was hard to bear. W ineglass was voted District player of rhe year and is only rhe second in PSC history to be named to the All-American NAIA Division II first ream. Wineglass was also selected to the All-District squad. Joining him in this honor were Rod Green and Ward , who was also selected ro rhe NAIA D ivision II honorable mention list.

125 YEARS OF PERU STATE COLLEGE HISTORY While reading through Ernie Longfellow's book Normal on the Hill, I found an interesting section hidden way at the back of the book. Here is parr of it. The oldest Color Song of Peru Srare that I Ernie Longfello have been able to find is this version written by G. N. Porter in July, 1906. "You may choose from all the colors That now stand for college fame; There's the orange, black, the scarier, They're sure to kindle flame. Bur the only combination That makes our young hearts light, As we sing with adoration, Is the pale blue and the white. "Through the four long years of college, 'Mid the scenes we love so well: While the mystic charms of knowledge We vainly seek to speLl, Or we win our mental victories As we strive with all our might, We will ne'er forger the pleasures Of the pale blue and the white. "When the cares of life o'er rake us Mingling fast our locks with gray, And our dearest hopes foresake us, False fortunes fade away. Still we banish care and sadness As we think of days so bright, And recall those days of gladness 'Neath the pale blue and the white. In 1912 parr of the words were changed and the Alumni were up in This photo shows the halls of T.J. Majors before Its renovation. In its early years, it served as the cam p us school. The T.J. Majors School opened for usc in 191 7 . Irs construction cost S I 00,000, and ir

was r hcn rega rded as "t he end" in educational facdmes. Rcnov_ation took place in 1988 to up-date its lntCnor. r hc projcc1 included adding an elevatOr. a1r conditionin g. and upgrade in sryling. The marbk floor rcmaim intact.

arms for rhey had nor been consulted about rhe changes. In 1920, rhe music reacher, Professor Hohman, decided rhar rhe Color Song should have original music. He wrote it, and the new rune was presented in Chapel in May, 1920, where the students were drill ed in singing ir. When Professor Hohman left, the new music was shelved in favor of the older one. Along with this information, Longfellow has researched a lor of rhe history of the found ing of Peru Stare College. He sought to put onto paper what so many of the leaders of our pasr failed to do. H e wanted rhe next generation to und erstand what our history was and how g ratefu l we should be to the people of our past. Those people include Mr. McKenzie, Dr. Goman, Be rni e Baker, Colonel Majors, and many more. To immortalize the words of Mr. Ernie Lon gfel low, "Peru Stare has come a long way from its humble beginning with vast horizons opening before us. Teachers and leaders are more necessary today than in the days of 1867."

Dr. Neal S. Goman, President of Peru State served from 1951 until retirement.

It includes ar least 12 conference championships in rhe last 4 1 years. lr includes a record high score of I 03 to 0 against Kearney in 1920 with Adam T raudr scoring 7 touchdowns, a record for one game never surpassed. Heroic exploits by coaches and players dot the past. AI Wheeler's 23-year reign as head coach ( 1938-1960) harvested 129 victories while losing 56 for the most coaching victories. More recently, rhe Peru State Bobcats won another national championship. Led by quanerback Nate Bradley, the Bobcats went on to have one of their best seasons ever. The football field has u ndergone many changes to keep the systems up-to-dare. The ligh ting sys tem was redone in 1964 to increase the facilities to 80 I 500-warr bulbs. Also, a building was created to house dressing and equipment rooms for both home and visiting reams. It is at the nonhwesr corner of t he football field.

Jack Mcintire, a star player in the late 1930's and 1940, became head coach for the Peru Bobcats. In 1967 , he finished his I I rh season as cage coach , a longevity record. His 163 victories and six conference champ ionships are also individual high marks for Peru State coaches. Mcintire has lost II 0 games for a winning percentage of. 613 . Peru State's greatest scorer of all rime was Orner Meeker, a 1951 graduate.

The Campus School building was built in 19 16. In early October of 1914. a contract \\':15 let to Mr. Ritchie for a S83.000, three story building. The cornerstone was bid on Juh- 5. 1915. The State Normal Board purchased furniture and equipment which made the new school one of the most modern institutions in the Midwest .

Dedication of the building was in June 1917. The building housed benches and machine ~ools, as well as a small gymnasium with wooden curtains. The Training School was named in honor of Colonel T . ]. Majors. an early res ident of Peru who had spent many years in the State Legisbture working for Peru State College and who also served on the State Normal Board. This school building is dedicated to Colonel Majors to honor his long and F.!ithful service to the school and to the town of Peru. He was a member of rhe Stare's first legisbrure wh ich created Peru State College as a ta.x-supporred college.

Dr. McKenzie returned to teach at Peru in 1879. He was a reacher of mathematics, bookkeeping. and astronomy, a post which he filled until 1886. During this rime he built a small telescope and a small observatory on the grounds north o f rhe present Campus School. The next year a five-inch telescope was purchased and a larger observatory made of brick with a twelve foot dome and an adjoining room for study was built. The dome represented quire an engineering feat for in those days. George Pettit succeeded in softening red elm lumber by steaming it and bending th is lumber inro half circles to form rhc dome. The telescope is still in usc in the observatory o n top of the Auditorium . The observatory was torn down in 1916 when the T. J.

PSC HISTORY Cadets were organized on campus during each of the early wars. During 1904, professo r Beck reorganized them. T he Cadets were a factor in the social life of the Normal School as well as being a physical training unit. The Cadet Marching Band and the Co lor Guard were often called upon to assist in Fourth of July celebrations and mock battles were also staged as part of those celebrations . One Fourth of July, about 1907, the Cadets d ecided ro prod uce an Indian attack on a stagecoach. No real stagecoach was available, bur a substitute was found in the horse-drawn carry-all that was used to transport passengers to and from the depot. The scene o f the massacre was the athletic field where the stagecoach , loaded w ith passengers, made two tr ips around th e oval. Suddenly a b a nd of Indian s emerged from th e rav ine at the south end of the field and pursued the coach, uttering war-whoops and shooting cartridges at the driver and assistan t. A ll seemed lost until a bugle so unded "th e charge" and a compa ny of uniformed Cad e t s charged o ut of the woods and soon pur the Indians to rout. The audience enjoyed t h e mock skirmish and mock battles were h e ld for some rime afterward.

Athletic contests come and go, and Peru State has won more than her fifty percent. Losses are not bragged about but vicrories are heralded by the ringing of the Vicrory Bell mounted on the front of the Old Gym. This bell has proclaimed victory and called the students to their classes since the early days of Peru Normal. Its predecessor was a small pot-metal bell bought by professor McKenzie when the school was started in 1867. One extremely cold morning the bell broke when being rung tO summon the girls tO old Mount Vernon Hall to mornmg chapel services. The Victory Bell was purchased from McNeeley and Company of Troy, New York. When "Old Main" was built, in 1872, the bell was placed in th e tower of that building where it rested until the Science Hall was built in 1928. It was then moved to its present position where it continues to announce tO the world that Peru State is again victorious.

Builr at a cost o f 5500,000, rhe Jindra Fine Arts Cen ter was opened in the spring semesrer of 1966. It was built on the sight of rhe first library and rhc Old M usic Hall. T he Fine Arts Center houses Music, Speech and Art dcparrmenrs. l r has an auditorium fo r recitals and smaller enrerrainmcnrs.

The building was finan ced by tax money. lr was necessary to build rhe Fine Arrs Cenrer because enrollment had grown t reme ndously. From a 195 1- 1952 low of 269 students, rhe number had grown to 866 in the fall of 1964. Peru Stare passed rhc I 000 mark for rhe first rime in irs history in 1965 when I 041 students registered for rhe fall semester.

Plays have been performed s ince as early as approximately

1902. T he play shown dares back to somewhere in rhe 19 1D's. The old theatre had wooden sears and a balcony. T he rheatre has been updared, bu r rhe srrucrure and sryle remain rhc same. The thearre is still used ro enrerrain rhe audience. The plays performed throughout rhe years cover a wide variety o f areas. Early performances included plays by Shakespeare and orher early aurhors. Theatre was a large parr of community cnrc rrainmenr during the early years. (T elevision was nor ycr invenred. ) The selection of rhe plays was rhen geared ro what rhe community would like. Many of rhe plays were very mild because children made up a large parr of rhe audience. Today. rhe plays are chosen to meet the rimes. T hey reflect rhe changing views in our sociery, as well as rhe personal views of those selecti ng them. T he majority of rhe plays of roday are nor geared fo r viewing by young audience members.

The AI Wheeler Acriviry Center was built after rhe centennial celebrat ion of 1967. This center was built to replace rhe .1ging Chapel/ Gymnasiu m. now known as the Old Gym . The Center houses basketball and volleyball courrs, a swimming pool and rrack. During rhe early years of its creat ion, track and swi mm ing were still prom inent sporrs fo r Peru Srate College. Track presented a problem fo r researchers. Some arc fairly certain that track has been a part of rhc sports scene s ince the ' Pring of 1907.

E.E. Good worked hard 10 secure a bill with t he Legislature appropriate funds to build a new library. In January, 1905. it passed through the House of Representatives with a $32,000 budget. T he library was completed in September, 1906. It was originally one swry and had a full basement. The second story was added in 191 1. T h is building replaced the old library, located on the present site of the Fine Arts Building. It was made in 1889 at a cost of $ 15,000. T he library has undergone many changes since it was built. The steps which originally led up 10 it have disappeared. T he sidewalk outside has been raised. The lower windows have been b ricked up and the first floo r windows have been enbrgcd. A double set of doors now greets students. The library houses magnines. books, news articles, microfilm and a new computer system. All these up-dares have created a more efficient and more accessible library for both the f.lculry and the students. to

Shown he re is the memorial wall dedicated to rwo graduates from PSC. T his wall was created following t he deaths of C hristine H addad and T roy Rippe n. C hris Haddad, as everyone called he r, was working for Peru State C ollege's admissions department following her graduation. She wanted to give back to t he school t hat had given her so much. Her death affect ed so many o n campus. Students were released from their classes to atte nd her campus services. Her fam ily in M ilford , N E, was touched by the devot ion so many f.lculry members and students had for he r. Shortly after her death, Peru was hit with another tragedy. T roy Rippen, H addad's close fTiend, was fatally injured in a car accident. Rippen taught in a near-by school following the completion of h is graduatio n. Like H addad, he was admired for everything he did to benefit PSC. Members of the facu lty and staff, as well as t he student body, dedicated th is memorial to their memory.

A building forty feet wide. eighty feet long and three stori<路s high with a half basement describes the first plans for Mounr Vernon. During the building of this structure, the workers had co overcome various setbacks. but it was finally completed in 1866. This is the rebuilt Mount Vernon Dorm itory, reconstructed following the 1897 fire which gutted it. The original building was the first on campus. The first major disaster in the hisrory of Peru Normal occurred on January 4. 1897. when Moum Vcmo n Ha ll burned. While t he build ing was still burning. Dr. Beattie. telegraphed Judge B. E. B. Kennedy, President of the Board of Education . to inform hi m of rhe fire. He came to Peru on the first available train. studied rhc siwation. and decided to call a meering of the Board to recom mend an appropriation of $20.000 fo r a new dorm to be added. T he building srood intact umi l it was razed ro mak<路 way for the construction of rhe present Srudem Center Building.

WRAPPING IT UP

ATPSC The end of the year is upon us. The summer is finally here. Srudenrs have taken their finals and are awaiting their grades anxiously. It is also time ro say our goodbyes. Some people will graduate and move on ro a new phase of their lives. Others will rerum to face another grueling year at the starr of the fall semester. To all of these people; however, we must say our goodbyes. The summer takes each of us on our own way. Some of us will travel ro far off places. Others will go only a car ride away. Many work summer inremships. Others take a break from their highly regimenred year. Still others rerum to school for a hectic summer program. No matter where you go, or what you do, the bonds developed at Peru State College will last forever. To those who graduate, best of luck in your new life. May it be as rewarding and fulfilling as your life at Peru was. To those who will leave to take classes elsewhere, don't forget good old PSC. Ir left you with some of your strongest memories. These memories will never be forgotten. And finally, to those who will be reruming next year, see ya' later. It can only get better. The only thing that's for certain is it's always a mystery. - Michelle Summerlin
