HON . J. F R AN K HANLY Governor of Indiana. \\'hO dcliYcrecl Commencement Address



The Seniors. H ere's to the Seniors of nineteen eight! Seniors ! The class which h as labored nor waited for fate, T he class of all classes, by deeds made g reat, Seniors ! The days have gone swiftly for one and for all, Seniors ! Since first we entered our dear College hall And felt ourselves h eld in her mystical thrall, Sen iors ! O ur schcol work is ended, and forth we must go, Seniors ! To meet with Ji.fe's trials, and this we know, The Seniors are ready to cope with each foe, Seniors ! Though our trials be man y, and h ard, and long, Seniors ! Still in our hearts we will carry a路 song, And spend our lives gladly, in h elping ri gh t wrong, Seniors ! SARA E. Du NN .




The class of 'o8 had its hu mble beginning way down in the g rades o f the l'Vl ode l School. There are a few who we re in the class at that time who will g raduate this yea r. O thers have dropped out, either for a year or two or have left school permanently. T he regular Normal work was, howeYer, begun in the F irst Year class, and the class was marked from the fi rst for its enthusiasm and good work. The class adviser that year was P ro f. C. F. Beck. T he class colors chosen this year were old rose and olive g reen, and have been kept throug hout the ent ire course. The Second Yea r cla ss was organized the next fall with Prof. J. M . Howie as class adviser and l\ [a ry A . H oadley as class president. The class showed its ori g inality and enterprise on its ' ·coming in'' day, wh en it ma rched on the rostru m of the Old Chapel, each member wearin g a paper cap of the class colors, bowing and tippin g caps to the Fac ulty and the State Board of Education , which wa,; present, then replacing th eir caps. they about-faced toward the studen ts a nd gave the yell tha t has been heard so many times since : Get out of the county, Get ou t o f the state, For we are the class O f nineteen-eig ht. T he school year ended with a victory for the class on F ield Day . The T h ird Year class, or Sophomore class, as it is now called, organi zed the next _yea r with M r. Best as president. The good work and interest of thc:previous yea r was carried on. The class organization was strong, and the class work was stronger. Th e class was represented in th e school debates and in all org anizations. This year again closed with a victory for 'o8 on Field Day. The J unior Y car was one of u nprecedented su ccesses. T h e class showed more than ever the ori rrinalit,· \\·hich has cha racterized it thruout its entire career. "' . The president, C. 0 . Oline, was ably seconded by his strong cabinet and ea rnest workers. The class work was the best ever done as a class in the No rmal, and individual members did splendid work in all lines of school activities. The c.lass broke away from the old custom of ser ving the Seniors a banquet and gave· then1 a play in stead. O n Field Day the 'o8s aga in carri ed off the banner, thus crowning a successful yea r with at~oth e r victory. As a Senior cla ss, is there a ny need to enumerate the class' success a ntl superiority ? Earnest in school work, ori g inal in class work, and unconquerable in ever ythi ng, the class of 'o8 will end its last year at P eru as the best an.d nobles~ class ever sent fo rth from the N ormal's class rooms to train the children or Nebraska 's many schools.

The Sophomores. \Vh en the school year 1907-1 908 opened a t the No rmal, the reg istration of ophomores was 90. Several who might possibly have ranked as Juniors prefcrro.?d to cast their lots w ith the Class o f 1910. Vvc considered ourselves fortunate indeed as a class to secure the scn ·ices o f M iss E lli s as adviser. S he has led us throug h a most profitabl e and prosperous year. A t an early date we met for class org anization, and elected C. Gordon Beck president, lVIary E llenberge r vic~-presi d ent, Lauretta Conn secretary. a nd R oy L ee t reasurer. This able bodv o f officers has steered our " Soph " ship thru' all kinds of waters. The social f;!nctions o f the class haYe been cli :~ractcri zed bY the same ht:arty class spi ri t that has characteri zed us in a ll fields. \'\ 'e shall not soon forget th ese good times. In all lines of school endeavor-athletics, associ:Jtion work. debating and iiterary societies-the Sophomores figure prominently, everywhere is Sophomore ~:nthusiasm felt. Someone has suggested that our scarl et and cream should be excha nged for some other color combination that would better express our ··:·elling" propensitit ; Let us look at our record for this school yea r's athl etics. Two of the K orm al pigskin_ booters were represented by L incoln and l\IcReynolcls, who are said to be the sw1ftcst tackles in Nebraska. The second teams w ere composed la rgely o f our classmen-among them Lee, Jennings, l\•I agor, S toddard and Guilfoil, who were always " there with the goods." But we must not fo rg et Beck, who would have made end had it not been for the stringency of parental r ule. nor Aden. th e. famous fullback from Rising City. who would have made that place had he not brcn physically incapacitated, and so w~s not allowed to t ry out. \V hen D r. Scherer had made up h1 s basket ball teams, we saw on the boys' team Gordon Beck and C. P. Schott. who was made captain. In the g irls' team w~ re E~it~1 Phillips a nd Esther Blanken s~ip , who are unexcelled as forwa rds. :\ l1ss PhlllJps is a sure player who se lcloc1 m1 sses a goal. (Indeed. the only record ,,.e have of her havin o- lost her head was in the g ame played when her friend " B ueter " from Y ork ,;as in town and was late to the g ame.

FOOT BALL TEAM-Champions of Nebraska Coll eges.




FOOTBALL. The season of 1907 was. on the w hole. a success in Peru . T he :::\ormal met a nd defeated Tarkio and D oane. t,,·o of her old ri,·als . aga inst whom she had never befo re been able to score.

Basket Ball. The season of 1908 was perhaps the best the Normal has ever enjoyed. :1\:ot a game was lost on the local floor, while on the other hand w e won from the g reat tt:"am of \•Vesleyan. which had such success at other places. The games lost on other floo rs were the result of playing under unfavorable conditions, such as the sloping floor at hcnancloah. The schedule was started in none too a uspicious a style, owing to the fact that the tea m was made u p almost entirely of new men. As the season progressed. however, the improvement in team wor k became more and more marked, and ·th..: last four games were won easil y, the la st being the whirl wind affair in which th t:. Normal played \ 1\T eslcyan off its f eet and establish ed an equal claim with tha t ins titution for the championship of the state. SCORES

The American Girl. The Ame rican girl of today has been toasted <>.nd s ung ad infin itum.

Sh e'

has been presented to us und er ma ny different types an d poses a nd yet the re is much to be said regarding the A merican girl. There are as manY different phases as there are different points o f viewindeed, as many phases as there are g irls, perhaps.

From the a rtist's point o f

view we have the ·· Gibson g irl.., and the "vVil ey g irl," the "sweet g irl g raduate," and a lso th e humorist"s type portrayed by Lulu and L eander. Then from the writer's point of view we have the " Juliet \"'ilbur Thompkins" type so o ften r- resented in magazines a nd on post-ca rds as "Mildreds" and " Gertrud es " and ·'Josephines·· who stndy art and plan careers which inevitably end in matrimony.

The types generally given in modern novels are the "society ''

type. "journalist .. type. "business ,,·oman .. type-and many others. But 2fter all. the A merican g irl is a class distinct a nd unique, bro't up under <'. d ifferent code from any o f her forbea rers.

th e ideal Ameri can g irl that a ppeals to us is the "occasional" A merican

g irl of the present century.

By occasional I do not mean the ordinary use of the'

word. but l mean the gi rl that is ''up .. to any occasion whateve r it may be anrl whenever it may present itself. :\fcntally she has a hig her degree o f intell ectual ity than the g irl of any other nation beca use she has a whole head full o f good common sense "·hich can't he!p but m <> ke the best kind of a n inte llectual mixture when stirred up with a li ttie g rey brain matter. Spi ritually she tand for the highest idea ls and good morals and does mor~ to scatk r good infl uence ove r the world than any oth er li ving creatu re o r thing . 1\

If it i!' necessary for her to earn her own living she neYer worries others about

her troubles. but she immediate!\· measures the worth of her services. realizes her ca pacity fo r doing things. exchanges self-t.:onceit-if she has a ny-for selfrespect. learns to estimate others by a tr ue estimate o f herself a nd tints quickly learns th e rea l needs of the world and how to meet them . .

FORTNIGHTLY ART CLUB. T he F ortnightly A rt Club was organized nine years ago, consisting of the :aci y nH:lllbers of the facult:· and the ladies of the town. Its object was the systematic, comprehensiYe study of the old masters and their work. Yea r by year it ha s met reg ularly, conti nuing the study in various fi elds, both ancient and modern, until a wide scope has been carefu ll y covered. O utlines o f study are prepared each ·ear. A r t magazines a nd best authoriti es upnn paintings, ~culpture. handcraft, pottery and architecture have been added to the library, thru the club. for the benefit of a ll persons connect·ed with the school. St imulated by the inspiration g ained thn1 this study, and desiring to share w ith othe rs the result of its research. the club br!ngs to the school once or twice each yea r an a r t exhibi t. consisting o f the best collection of pictures possible to be secured in this countn·. In connection with the exhibit each year are found choice pieces of pottery, mosa ics, carved ivory a nc! other bric-a-brac directly from foreig n countries. T he student bod .,· larrreh· . atte nds and derives g reat cul tural val ue fro m the study o f pictures, a nd from the lectures that ar-e g i,·en each da y and evening dumg the ex hibit. ~

Evidences of the " ·ork of this orga ni zation in the for m of excellent pictures \\'ell framed a re found e,·ery\\·he re in the norma l school, in the homes o f the vi llage and in the school ro~m s of the state. In the chapel, the decoration o! which the club has undertaken, g reat care has be·en exercised in the selection or appropriate subj ects. At tl;e pr~se n t time a portion of the reproduction of the beautiful Pa rthan on .f ri cze. embellishes the front, wh il e at one side stands the graceful fignrc of l\lincr va, a nd on the other side th e artistic stat ue of S t. Georgc. Th e aesthetic education of the young men and women is unconscious!\· ta king place as they sit, each morning·. in the presence of the best \\'Ork of .Greek a nd modern :'Cu!ptors.
