= CATc'HES FROM THE CLASSES. I

A student can estimate the value of his own work as accurately as can another student. This· was dell!onstrated last week by . the senior class in theory of education. The procedure was as follows : Each member of the class read and grad· ed six papers written by others, after which he read and graded his own paper. Results were tabuIated for 20 papers which had been read by six or more people, including the writer in each case. The median grade g iven to any paper was adopted as the true grade. Er rors were thus calculated . • Results showed that 11 of the 20 writers had made a smal ler error on their .respective papers than was found to be the average error of all other readers of the same paper, and ten of the twe nty had done as well m grading their own papers as in grading oth er pa pers, on the avera ge.

Death of Rev. Hiram Burch. The fo11owing letter is from Professor L. A. Quivey, Englis~ department of the University of Utah: "As an alumnus of thE> Normal I write to inform you of the death last evening of Rev. Hiram Burch, a brother-in-law of first President McKenzie, and w.ith whom he organized the Methodist Seminary which later· becam,e the first normal school of Nebraska. If the ~stimon~ of ilie hmi~hffecan be accepted, Mr. Burch was the prime mover in the organization of this Methodist school; but he had nothing to do with the t-chooJ after its transfer to the state. He was a pioneer'minister in Neb~aska, and stood high in the regard of the conference there. He was nearly ninety year8 old. His body will be taken to Lincoln tomorrow. • 'I have furnished you with this information as J deemed it a part of the history of the Normal, an institution for Y..hich I have a great deal of friendship. 1 thought that possi\>ly you might like the news for chapel exE-rcises, and for historical p~rposes. . · •' WIth best Wishes for the success of the school, as well as for your own welfare, I am ''Very truly yours, "L.

The sole purpose of this meeting was to give spiritual support and confidence to Mr. Oberlies in his work with the afternoon meeting. , At 9:30 the boys a ll met in 1he lecture room for Sunday school. Mr. Oberlies acted as superintendent and fig-ured out very cleverly the number of boys that did not need to attend Sunday school. He showed clearly that not a sing le exception was permissible. The boys were then divider! into g roups of . fifteen and sent to separate rooms for real live Sunday school work. When the classes returned, Mark Delzell of Peru gave his helated talk on his go·>d time at Camp Sheldon last June. There is no question about it. Mark is " sure"that CampSheldonissure

Sandy,Belle. There is no use talking, you have the laugh on the whole crowd. An "August wedding" announced January is the cause of all this warm pleasant weather. Beg Your pardon! Mr. Robert Sandberg now a most popular teacher, and Miss Belle MeyP.rs, one of Randolph's popular tea~hers, were married in the month of August. Mr. and Mrs. Sandberg are both graduates of Peru, and have made successes. Professor Sandberg is now coach, athletic director ar.d manual training teacher in the Nebraska City high school. Mrs. Sandberg is now teach ing at Randolph. They will be remembered by their many friend s as Belle and Sandy. We are a little late, but here we are with the heartiest congratulations. A suggestion :-The next time you two get married, :.ip it off sooner, and the Normalite staff will take a passenger train.

OPEN LETTER Some of the advertisements for clothes ''as g ood as tailormade" are so well worded that I almost believe them myself. But I know better. Years ago I bought an imitation diamond that they told me was ·"ju~t as good as a genuine d iamond-you can't tell the difference." I never wear it, but once in a while I look at it when I hear this "just as good" talk. lt .has been a lesson to me. Perhap3 imita tion di amonds look like real ones; perhap~> imitation silk lcoks like real silk-but the man who wears them know.> the diff~rence and feels cheap. And my guess is that he looks ch eap to others. Anyhow he finds out there is a big difference if he tries to sell them. The rea l diamond is worth its hundreds of dollars any ·time, while the imitation won't bring thirty cents. The genuine article is always worth what it costs; t he imi tation is dea r at any price. 'As a matter of fact, good tailor-made clothes, such as I build t o fit, costs you no more today than imitation of do ubtful quality. They cost you less considering the length of time they wear and give satisfaction. The cloth I use is genuine all-wool; the workmanshi p is a ll by hand; t he fit is built in, not pressed in. And with every s uit is my binding money-back gua ra ntee. When you can get the genuine at my prices there isn't much u se of talking about ' 'just as good as tailor made."

The Junior... Senior Banquet. (Continue d rrom Firat

The menu served in f our courses was unsurpassed. Each cour se in point of qua li ty, daintiness of ser vice and rich, de licious flavor left It was a nothi ng to be des ired s uperb f east : one to delight the mos t exacting , and was in complete harmony with the beauty of the hal l. The entire men u was prepared by the junior and senior girls of the home economics department directed by Mrs Jean aml a bly assisted by Miss Foster. Thruout the setvice of the courses enchantiniJ musi c by t he N ormal Orchestra under the leadership of Profeseor Holch blended sweetly with the happy, animated conversation of the company a t th e tab les. The effect of the whole sett ing was most pleasing and will r emain stamped indel ibl y in the m emori es of the joyous g uests. At the cl ose of t he last course,

Mi ss E llis ho ld s a large place in the liv~s and affecti ons of the s t ude nts and no social evf'nt of t hat magnitude is consider ed comple t e without her presence. The "End of £he Play" was presented by Mr. Choyce in t his fitting paraphrase : ''The play is done; the curtain drops, S low falli nl' to the prompter's bell; A momeot yet the acto rs s top, And look ar ou nd to say f ar ewell. It is an irksome task in wor d and deed ;

"The Piay," a ntici paled by Professo r Delzell reviewed the various Incidents of the year. Mr. Del· zell was in his usual happy frame of mind and wrung many hearty laughs from t he audience. The show ended p leasantly, as a ll comedies must, by t he g r arluates getting married and li ving ha ppily ever afterwards. Mrs. Dor othy Roettger set f orth "The Prompter" a• the faculty that q uieti~ directs from be.hind ·the scene man attempt to. stt~ u­ ate each student to reach h1 s hl g hest possibi lities. Public senti ment was also humor ous ly r epresented as a promoter that keeps hairpins in s trai g ht, shoes polis h · e:I, and lessons properly prepar ed. "Between Acts" or s t udent activities was presented by Miss Ada Huff with a force and wit that cap tivated her hearers. Her points, emphas ized by appropr iate s tori es, received gener ous aoo lause.

And, when they've laugherl and had the i r say, They show as they remove their mas ks, Sad hear ts as well as hearts quite gay . '' "One word er e yet the evening ends, Let's c lose it wit h a parti ng rhyme, pledge a hand to senior fri ends, As fits thi s merry f estal time. On life's wide scene we, too, have parts, T hat fat e er e long wi II bid us play ; Good night! with hone>t gentle hearts A ki nd ly g r eeting go a lway." And

A I together the banq uet was one of the most spl endid s r. cial occasions ever seen in the his tory of the N ormal As hosts and hostesses the juni o rs were unexcelled and when the sen iors leave. they will always hold among the tenderest memori es of P eru the juni or -seni or banq u et of 1920 .

The conference was wisely conceived, and those in charge had the good fortune to make the happiest possible choice of out-of-state talent to addrP.ss the conference, in Lee L.
