The first gTaduating class of Peru High Sc hoo l ente re d the ninth gT a d e of Pent Training School Sept ember, 1918, wit h 29 me mb e r s. Thi s yca t· was m a rk ed by seve ral picnics and r:art _es in whi c: h we di scovered w hat a li ve ly bunch be lo n ge d to o ut· c lass. It was a lso matked because a basketbal l t ea m, c:ompo se cl mainl y of n in th g t·a d e boy::;. was organized. The next year was eve n more s uccessful soc: ia ll y . As th is was s upposed to be our last year t he Ninth grade gave a d e li g htful t·ec:eptio n in o ut· h o n or . -:r:he next year we entet:ed the Norma l as f r eshm en. W e proved that we were ft·es hmen m name only by havmg three men playing vars ity f oo tball . Four of our boys played with t he High Sc:hool basketball team a nd were influ e ntial in bringing about a victorious season. We also had a g ir l's basketba ll team w hi c h m et defeat at the ha nds of the more expeTienced Sophomor es by a s mall margi n. \Ve c: hose M1·. Sc: h oe nike to guide us thi s year and hi s effoTts in our beha lf were gr·ea t y ap prec iate d. Thi,: year was seasoned by snappy class chapels eac h w eek, three pa rti es , an oys~e r feed, a theater party and a much- enj oyed picnic w hi ch bro ug ht the yea •· to a c lose . About thi s time we discovered that a twe lfth g rade Hi g h Sc: h oo l was to b e ot·ganized and that our class would have the honor of being th e fir s t g r ad u ating c lass.

3Juntnrn When the doors of the Peru High School opened in 1919 th e r e wa ...; a large group of boy s and girls just "fresh" fr om th e g r a d es 1·ea cl y l() start their four years of High Schoo l life. Our first year was made pleasant by several parties and a much enjoyed sleigh ride. Mr. Gable was chosen class s ponsor and und e t· his leadership we "pulled through" the first year of our High Sc h oo l ex iste nc r; without very great difficulties. Our second year passed mu ch the same, and in th e fa ll of 1 ~)21 tiH; Junior class had the distinction of being the very firs t Junior class in l.h e newly organized High School. At the beginning of the year th e Junior.~ were very much in evidence. Coatney's pep machine was one of the out standing features of all high school activities. Early in the term a business meeting \Vas held for the purp ose 1> i' electing officers and a class sponsor. Mr. Brownell was ch ose n s p onsol' and under his kindly guidance the fo llowing offic ers ·w er e elected : Pr 2s ident, Arleen Ritchie; Vice President, Lucile Meek; Secretary , Rov,· e nH Beck; Treasurer, Roscoe Wright. Colors : red and wh ite. The Junior cla ss has taken a very active part in a ll sc hool activitie~:;. giving a very interesting little play in chapel th e fir st of the year and c:mtributing largely to the talent in the famous 1\'l instrel S how g ive n "High School N ite". In athletics, th e Juniors have been ver y prominent , h av ing three first team men in Basket Ball and the second team was made up m ostly of Juniors. In our short but successful football season, seven first t ea m Junio1· ...; helped to bring victory to P eru. The girls had a strong basket ball team but met defeat at the hands of the more experien ced Senior g irls in th e inter-class game. A number of class parties and entertainments were held during th•:! year including th e reception after one of the debates. Vve \vo uld also like to say that Roscoe Wright, a Junior, has tak en a very active part in this year's debating societ y . The student council members include five Juniors who vvill be ready next fall to help make the second year of the Peru High School a s till gr eat er success th an this year. The present Junior class has very bright prospects ahead for th e coming year. We have quantity in our class but do not lack fJua lity, a;-; hap, been shown in all school activities this yea r. A large part of th~ .Jllnior class is com in g back next year, so wat ch our "smoke" in 102 ~ .

The Sophomore is about as s mall a cla ss as there is in the Hig-h SchooL How 0ver, we believe in the proverb, "Little, but oh my!" The following offi<.:ers were elected for th e current year: Bartlett Vance, Pres ident; Marion Ov erholt , Vice President; Grant Casey, Secretary; and Philip Hoyt, Treas urer. A great deal of credit is due our sponsor, Mr. Brown, who has guided us through a successful year of our life and left us none the worse for it. On "High School Nite" the Sphomoes "Brought Up Father", and while doing it held the audience in speechless awe throughout the entire performance . The Sophomores also had charge of a party after one of the d ebat es, and even the Juniors concede our program was better than theirs . March 10, we h e ld ou1· first class party of the year. Sandwic-hes, coffee, wafers, Ben Hur so up, and ice cream were se rv ed. vVe left as th e li g·hts g·ave a warning win]\ , and everyone declared they had had a rare old time.

l n referring to


\V. G. Speer, o:1e need

go no further than his wonderful record as a college athlete and a college athletic direclo1路 to know that he is a man who has attained distinction in the athletic world. Coach Speer put in four years of service in the Kansas Aggie footail team and ''"on the honor of beins路 placed on the All-Missouri Valley team. He a 1 s o played baseball with the Aggies and was the leading infield hitter. It was because of his ability to "lay down bunts" and "beat 'em out", that he received the nick-name of "I3unt" Speer. While coaching at the Kansas State Teachers' College, COACH SPEER he built up a football team which took the championship of the Kansas conference. He then accepted a call to Peru and performed the miracle of changing the Peru team from a contender for the "cellar" championship to a contender for the highest honors of tbe conference. During the three years of his service at Peru , Coach Speer has develor:ed teams which have always been real contenders for championship honors. He never had a team which ranked below 500 per cent. This year has been the most successful one in the history of Peruvian athletics, because of the persistent efforts which the Coach put forth to grab off the Nebraska title. The basketball championship which rests with our own Peru quintet, is the best possible testimonial to the coach who not only builds for winning teams, but builds for clean athletics and true sportsmanship.

The Bobcats met d ef e at three tim es in the season's sch edul e of eight conference games, but the quality of the team s in tht• Nebraska circuit thi s year was f ar s uperior to that of a ny other y ea r. Our lo sses, recorded in conference standings were cut down to two when York forf e ited th e ir gam l' because an ineligibl e man was played. This put u s on. an eve n footing with th e confe rence champion s in th e numb er of ga m es won; but s in ce we pl aye d more games, the percentage column was agains t u s . In s pite of th e fa ct that the Bobca t s did not take th e sta t e champ ionsh ip in football, they were the highest scoring t ea m in th e conference; they played eight confel·ence gam es, and played s trictly fi rst r ate t ea ms, while th e two tit le co nte nders pl ayed only four and five conferenc e games and included "tail-enders" in their schedules; tht·y pil ed up 117 points to their oppon e nts 35 points ; they totaled 60 points to th e ir opponents' 10 points in the last two ga mes of the season; they landed in third plac e in the conference race, and W esleyan and W ay ne played a post-season game to d ec idt• first and second places. W esleyan def eat ed Grand I s land only 17-0; Wayn e defea ted Grand I sland only 14-0, while P eru d ef eated Grand Island 27-0; W es leyan defea t e d Hastin gs 14-0, while P eru defeated Ha stings 32-7. YORK GAME The Bobcats got away to a bad sta rt when they battl ed the York Panthers at york for the opening g ame of the season. Th e game was fast and hard fo ught, but r es ulte rl in a 16-13 v ictory for York. Old man jinx in vad ed the ca mp , and altho th e m e n mad e it very plain that lw was an unwe lcom e ca ll er, th ey were un ab le to get rid of him. In the first ha lf t h e Peru sq uad had everythin g t h eir own way; repeated gains w e r e made thru York's line a nd aro und their end s , whi le the frequent pa sses which th· ~ Pedagogues completed kept the York squad guessing. In t h e second ha lf, however, the Bobcats were handi capp ed by the loss of Willy. who had to be removed because of inju r ies and, as a result of th e neces sary shiftin g 111 the lin e-up t h e York sq u ad g·ained an a d vanta ge the Peruvians were un ab le t o OVl'l'e:ome.

GRAND ISLAND GAME Grand I s land Co ll ege was the n ext opponent fo_r the Boocat gridmen , and s marting under the d efeat at York, the Peruv1ans tore mto th e ga me with the fight and determination which proved dis astrous to the I s la nd men. The fir st half was featured by a punting du el in which the Bobcat boater got th<! best of hi s Zebra opponent. Altho the Bobcats only put ac r oss one tou chd own in the first half, they tram red on the Grand I s land squad for 21 points in the second period. Th e ga m e ended with Peru topping the h eap with a 27-0 score. KEARNEY GAME The Peru Pedagogues defeated the Kearney Antelopes in a hard fought game o n th e Kearney gridiron. The game was a batt'e royal thruout, furnishing quite a co ntrast to the 1920 Peru-Kearney en co unter, when Peru walked off with the lono· em! of the J03-0 sco r e. Kearney must be given cr edit for displaying lot s of fight and !itaging a co m eback from la st season's def~at s uffi cient to h old the Pedagogues to a :J-0 score. As the final count indicates, the two teachers college teams were very evenly matc hed and both teams put every ounce of fight into the game they co uld muster because of the keen rivalry between the two institution which they represented. In the last quarter of the game Bitzie booted a place kick over the bar for the only tally nf the contest. Peruvians always consider the season a s u ccess if the team beats i\.ea rney . MIDLAND GAME Coach Sisty's Midland .Lutherans came here determined to take the Pedagogue;; down a notc h but they reckoned without their host. During the first half no scores were made by either team but the Bobcats had a littl e the best of the encounter. In the last half the Bobcats clawed their way thru the tigers for two touchdowns, thus putting the game in storage labe ll ed "victory". DOANE GAME Anyway they cou ldn 't make a touchdown! Doane and Peru played a hard foug·ht ga m e of football on the Doane Co llege gridiron at Crete Friday, November 4. Doane came out of the game with a 3 point lead and can consider themselve~ very fortunate in annexing· suc h a victory. The game was anybody's up to the whistle , but the drop kick booted over by Buck, Doane fullback, in th e la st quarter, made the final tally Doane 3, P eru 0.

Just among omselves Peru had the best team, The Bobcats out-fought the tigers , and made more yardage and first downs. However, Lady Luck smiled upon the Con路 gregationali sts, tilted their horseshoe at the right angle, put them in drop kick formation and when Buck booted the pigskin, directed it between the goal posts. Well alibi~~ are useless . But, goodness, Doane, you're lucky! WAYNE GAME Wayne defeated Peru in one of the most evenly matched games played on Peru' s g r:diron. The game was a thrill from start to finish, for while the final score was 路wayne 6, Peru 0, both teams were constantly threatening to score. Wayne succeeded in putting across one touchdown by the aerial route, but fail ed to ki ck g oal. Pe1 u took a brace in a final effort to score, but with the absence of on e of the best pl a yer s fr om the line-up, were unab:e to shove the oval across . HASTINGS GAME Th e P eru Bobcats clawed their way thru the Hastings Broncos for a 32-7 victory. The Hastings football aggregation was unable to stop the terriffic onslaught of the Peru " pep machine" when Peru and Has tings staged their annual football cla s sic on the P eru athletic field, Friday, November 17. In spite of the lopsided score in favor of Peru, the game was hard fought thruout. The Ha stings Bronchoes rarcd and bucked but the Bobcats kept right on clawing and just could not be stopped. The P eru machine looked to be an entirely different team from the one that crosse r! swords with the Wayne team and previous we ek. Wtih all the determination they could mu ster, and Coach Speer could inject, they trotted out onto th e marked-off rec tangl e and corral ed the Hast!ngs Boncho s in one of the most ex citing roundups ev er held on the P eru g ridiron. It a s very evident from the beginning that the Broncho -; did not wan t to be tamed; in fact, we had learned thru the state papers that they mad e t he journey t o P eru on ly because they intended to run wild and tramp'e the Peruvian s under t heir hoof s. However, they mad e a few seriou s miscalculation s , and when the roundup was over t he Ha s ting路s t eam wa s for ced to tal'e home th e s tory of 32-7 defea t.

This year he wa::; handicapp ed by an injury to his kne e which k e pt him out of some of the games . He did his best work this year in th e Midland game wh e n. by caging a spectr.cular shot he started the rally which won this game fot路 Peru. Everyone regrets that thi s is "Baldy's" last year with u s . GLEN FRARY, Forward, First Year H onorable Mention, 1922 Frary is another one year man who he i]: ed put Peru on th e athletic map of the state. H e hail s from Auburn, where he played on the class "A" high sc hool team. He has remarkable ab ility at caging the leather from the floor, and combines s peed with headwork in hi s playing.

JAMES SIMO N, Forward, First Year Simons is a one year man who has proved that he can go into the game when called upon, and not weaken the mach:n e one particle. He is s p ee dy, and aggressive; he handle either fonvard or a guard position in a capab le manner. He estab lished a reputation and cinched a posit'on on th e squad in the first two games of the season when two of the o'd-timers were unabl e to play.

~ankrthall ALL-VICTORIOUS The year 1922 will lon g be rememb er ed by P eruvian s be c au~e of the ch a mpion s hip honor s which the Bobcats annexed foi· th e glo r y of the old schoo l. The conference was composed of unu s uall y s trong bas ke tball quintets, a nd the race for title honors was c lo se and fiercely contested. P eru was ha rd pressed thru out th e season by teams only a f ew n otches down the percentage lad d er , but it is all the m or e to the Bobcat' s cr edit to win a championship with. riva lry so keen and the c 'a ss of b :c~sketb a ll the best ever di sp layed in the N ebras ka conference. It has be en a number of yea rs s ince any college in the circuit ha s taken· the titl e with a c lea r r ecord a nd the Peru lis t of e leven confer en ce victories and three out-of-conferen ce wins without a s ing le loss is quite a n enviabl e acco mplis hment. TABOR 9-PERU 26 Tabor college was the first t ea m to m ee t d ef eat at th e ha nd s of the Peruvian cagesters. The Tabor quint et found the _race set b y th e Bobcats to be too f ast for th e m , s o the coach call ed off th e fir s t. s tring m en a nd r a n in the "Pony" t eam . KEARNEY 15-PERU 18 The rumor that th e Kearney T eac hers had r ecruited som e pron11 s m g bas ketball material from the hi g h school s tars in their t erritory was not a fal se on e, and the Bobcats w er e confronted by a powerful squad of cleve r ba s ke tba ll players when th ey m et the K ea rn e y Antelop es in a fierce encounter on the Kearn ey floor. The game started with Kearn ey cagin g the fir st ba sk et and the P eruvian s in ho t pursuit. Th first h a lf end ed with Ke a rn ey one po int in th e lead. It wa s not lon g before P eru ass um ed the r espon s ibility of l ea d er s hip and maintained the position thruout the rest of the game. At n o time, how ever , was ther e a saf e m ~ngin of points, and th e team felt relieved a nd happ y when th e timer blew hi s whistle. P eru is always proud to win fr om t he K earney T each er s b ec au se of the stron g rivalry between the two s ~ hoo ls . Coac h Speer's m en ha ve n ever been defeat ed by Kearney in the three years that he ha s been coachin g P eru a thl eti c teams. DOANE 12- PERU 23 Johnson, the la nky Tiger center. was the m ai n noi se for Do a n e , un 1ess it was the nowd shouting vain protests at Speer's m en for playing- keep-aw a y. J ohnson was th e man who reg-i ster ed a lJ of t he Doane scor es, w ith the exception of one ba sk et toss ed by Higgi nbothan. After Peru had gain ed quite a lead the Ti gers began shooting from way past th e middl e of the fl 0o r in a vain effort to ove rcome the P eru margin, when the final whi s tl e blew a nn ou n cin g to th e world t ha t P eru ha d bea t en the team which had taken the conference cha m pion s hip fo1· f ou r y ear s in su ccession. It was beyond our wild est dreams to nearly doub'e th e sc ore on the ex-c hamps . but you n ever Pan tell what impossib le things a Bobcat team will accomp li s h when th ey a r e turned loose to hunt their f eed. P eru def eated Doa ne by as many points as Doan e h as bee n defeated by all other teams co mbin ed in the la s t four yea r s.

As a s ide is sue to th e Mid land trip the Bobcats look on thl· Tabo1 ·, Iowa, Panthe 1·s . Contrary to expectations the Tab?r ~earn wa s not an easy one to take into camp, and Coach Speer was forced to use h1 s hrs t tenm to turn the tri c k . Th e Taho 1• crew wa::: re-enforce~ by the confidence of the hom e booste 1·s a nu a hom e of·li c ia l and consequently put up qmte a scrap. MIDLAND 17- PERU l k The P et·u quintet defeated Midland Co ll ege basketee1·s at Fr e lllont in one of the best games ?taged in conference c ir~ l es .this yea1·.

KEARNEY 17- PERU 21 The Peru Cage artists encountered a fo1·mida!;>l e fo e _ when they tangled with the Kearney Teachers College quintet f01: th e seco.nd tnn e th1s ;v:ear. Th e game was hard fought throughout the· two twenty mmute p e nods and ~as t eatu!Td by the come-back of the Kearney cage men after the P eru fiv e had see mmgly r eg 1ste1·('(f e nough talli es for a safe lead . The defen s iv~ work.of the Peru g_uards was a SCJUI'Ce of p!ea s ure to the spectators and many a rehe~ed s 1gh came floatmg out ove1· the floo 1· as Bitzie 01· Toft would stretch out far-reachmg arms and g-rab th e mflate d lea th er from its path to the basket and start it rolling toward . th e.

Something desperate had to be done to s top t.he s_teady advaw·e of the Ke~nn e y cages ters, and Rothert solved the .problem by ropm?-' m, a pr~tty fi e ld s hot from the side. A few more seconds of franbc work and th e tnne r s wh·stl e stopped one of the b es t games ever staged on the local floor. SYRACUSE 14- · PF:RU 84 Th e Syracuse game was schedu led fo~ a rra~t'ce game before the co mpl e tion of t he conference schedule.

DOANE 18- PERU 27 One of the most deci s ive games of the cenference wa s s tage d when th e Peru cage men met the quintet from Doane College and defeated them by a 27 to 18 count. The Doane Tigers lived up to their nam e and reput~tion and battled d es perate'y to stay in the 1922 title ra ce: Our own speedy Bobcat q~mtet, however, was too mu c h for them and aft er forty mm~tes of one. of the mos t. fier ce ly _co ntested cage battl es in the conf erence, the final wh1 stl e bl ew w1th the Peruv1ans _Ieadmg the 27 to 1 8 score.

The rangy Peruvia n s presented :1 st1 ong c ffen s iv e and defensive combination . The defense of the Pedagogues is shown in the fact that Cotner was held to four field bask et s , all of which were of the long \ a l"i (ty . The l:lutldogs were h e ld to a lon e field goa l dur ing· the final period. Th e lJeru offens:ve did not get und er full steam until the final period, when they caged six bas k e ts from the floor.

The first ten minutes of play was decided ly ragged and was marked by the in ab ility of either team to s .ip the inflated lea ther thru th e iron hoop .

What is a college without a women's athletic club? The Olympic Club fills the need of such an organization in the Peru Teachers Ct liege. Our club is composed of live members who believe in the principles tha~ nhysical health, as well as mental health is essential to general well-being. Jt has, however, in this, its second year, had many difficulties to meet. Th e use of the high school gymnasium was limited to every other Saturday, but this did not prevent other activities. Numerous hikes have been n ,.:;ource of great pleas ure to all who took them. Club members have also l1ad t he privilege of practicing basketball with th e high sc hool girls n n umber of times. During the first semester, the club was organized under the leadership of Edna Fisher, who co uld well be called the star athlete of Peru. Pajarita Atkisson ser ved as president the second semester. Her enthusiasm an d athletic ab ility shown during the first part of the year carried ;:he clu b thru a semester's fun and sport. Miss Williams, our capable s ponsor, worked out a plan by which a girl could earn a letter and a sweater for athletic work done. A poin-t ~ystem, ado ~t ed by the club, provid~s that points can. be secured by hil(mg, b_y playmg basketball and tenms , and by pa rta km g in trac k .

The college girls' Olympic Club first organized in 1920, has furnished the greater part of women's athletic activities this year. Hikes along country roads and games in the gymnasium have brightened many a Saturday afternoon, and the interest and enthusiasm of the members proves that th e Olympic Club will long remain an institution of our college. The regular physical training classes have been under the direction of l\1iss Ruth Williams. Though gymnasium facilities have been limited this year the registration in all the classes has been large and the work along corrective and recreational lines has been thoroly enjoyable. Aesthetic dancing, directed by Alice Glasgow, has given much pleasure to those who would fain win beauty and grace; and has furnished various delightful exhibition numbers during the yearly entertainments ~tnd May day exercises. Of course the real athletic event of the season was the FreshmanSophomore Girls' tasketball game. The teams were ''" ell matched and both sides displayed real team work. But clever goal shooting during the first half establishe d a lead which the Freshmen were unable to overcome and the whistle blew on a 19-14 score, with the Sophomore class holding th e honors.

"Qllarrurr" Booth Tarkington 's play, "Clarence" is a real American comedy. The characters are American; the action and plot have Yankee motives; the lines are all in the American language. It is as American as "Huckleberry Finn" or pumpkin pie. As a comedy with real meaty thought and with no lapses into farce, "Clarence" qualifies exactly. The action throughout is refined, s ubtle and above all natural. Those marvelous young people, Cora and Bobby Wheeler, are portrait sketches that appeal to every one but the originals. Their truth is lost on the "Flapper" and the "prep" scho ol yo uth. but to th eir rarEnts and guardians, to all, indeed, ' 'v ho ha ve emerged from the serious, Eelf-ccm:cious reriod of adolescence, they are an enduring joy. Laughs for the audience are frequent; in fact the play is made to lure tre laughter of its audience. On March 29, 1822, "Clarence" was presented by the fo ll owing ca::;t Mrs .

@>opqomor.r 01laru1 'lay --··m11r iJ\ahthnut ·· By Augu stu s Thom as Augustus Thomas, author of "The Rainbow", is a n American autho1· of note and one who has a great number of worth while plays t o hi s c r e dit. His success as a dra~ a~is t i ~ n ot du e to accidental in s piration but to logical study of the prmc1ples m dramatic co n s truction. His art is nature in that he deals with American s ubj ects in American s ittings and presents American themes. He began t o write plays when only fourteen yean; of age; he is an experiencd director and is at present th e Art Director o f the Charles Frohman interest s. "He stands in our drama fo r litera r y craftrn a n s hip and for a se riou s interest in the furtherance of dramatic progress." The play, "The Rainbow", had a s uccessful professional career and was first presented with Henry Miller play in g th e part of N e il S umn e t· and Ruth Chatterton acting in the rol e of Cynthia. Because of a misunderstanding and a sacrific e o n th e part of N e il Sumner, his w ife, Ruth Sumner, left him and taking the child, Cynthia, went to Europe. There she remained until Cynthia grew to b e a beautiful girl of sixteen. Neil S~mner grew tired of his lonely e xis ten ce and lived a life of rather a questiOnable nature and surrounded him self with unworthy friends. Because Cynthia wished to know her father, Ruth was compelled to return f!?m. Europe and to a llow Cynth~a to s ta y vvith h : r father for a time. Nell s sister, Betsy Sumner, h elped h1rn ca re fo r Cyn thia and incidentally helped him to get rid_ of_ his disreputable acquaintance<; and to try to pick up the threads of h1s hfe where h e had dropp ed th e m some t welve or fourteen years bfore. Ruth Sumner, however, remained estranged until their lawyer, Edwa rd _Fellows , and Betsy cleare d up th e old misunderstanding. Then the _family w;:ts r e-united a nd th e rainbo Yv of joy and promise shone over Ne1l Sumners brok en h orn e and once-shattered hopes. THE CAST Neil Sumner .... ... .. .. . Edward F ellows ... .

:W. :!lilt. Ql. A. This has been a year of united effort and inspiration to our assoc iation. What we could do, what we dreamed we co uld do, we undertook, and these things were accomplished . One of the most interesting features of this year has been the numbet· of entertaining talks we have had at some of our Wednesday evening meetings. We want to express deep appreciation to our friends of the facu lty and the town who so hospitably consented to address us. The Y. M. C. A., together with the Y. W. C. A., was very successful in the drive for money to be sent to the needy students of Europe. Besides this more serious side of the work, \Ve have met together in the spirit of fellowship and good w ill for a fev.; h ours of merry-making. TheY men recommended and conducted the father-son banquet, an annual affair for the fathers, sons and college men of Peru . At the opening of the new Y den a stag feed was held in v,rhich every man took part, even in the prize fights and hot hand. But more than all these religious gatherings and good times, we hav e enjoyed the friendship and mutual s pirit of helpfulness a nd sympathy that has existed among the men in this school.

r=:==> -->c

Qlnllrgr cnntqnltr i\ssnrtatinn Throughout the entire year the College Catholic Association has en.ioyed the privilege of hearing mass every second week at the home of Mrs. Jack. Meetings have been held every Sunday morning at 11:00 o'c-lock in an especially fitted room. Before the graduation of Miss Helen Dworak, our president, and Mis~ Nellie O'Connor an informal social affair was held at the home of Mrs. Jack. It was indeed a pleasure to all and served to establish a closer bond of friendship. The club appreciates the kindness of their friend, Mrs. Jack, also th e effort and interest of our able advisor, Miss Laughlin. Officers for the current year were as follows: President, Helen Dworak; Vice-President, Irma Casey; Secretary a nd Treas urer, Gertrude Carver; Pedagogian Reporter, Lucille Buscher. It is our sincere wish that this organization be continued a nd that its future members may derive as much benefit and inspiration from these meetings as the Catholics of 1921-22.

Possess ing member s with beauty, brains and talent, and an advisor capable and helpful , it is n : > wonder that Philomathean m ember s are always proud of their scc iEt.y . It is a really vital part of the experience of its enthusiastic s upporters. The r:rograms he:we stressed American talent in prose and poetry, realizing that modern American r:roductions are well worth study. Prog-ram leaders have 路work ed earnestly to provide interesting and profitable entertainment. The mu s ically g ifted m embers have m ade most delightful contributions to t.l:e programs. Each member has had a chance to add to the general enjoyment, so that no one might be imposed up on or carry extra burdens tecause of s uperior talent. A noticeable spirit of helpfulness and enthusiasm has always been a Philo characteristic. This has kept the society the leading one in school since its inception many yean ago. It has the honor of being the oldest and most vital literary organiz a tion in the Teachers College. Miss Williams, our adviser, has been a source of inspiration. H er vcillingness to h elp , no matter how full y her time has been occupied otherwise, has had its ben efit in making each one anxious to prove eq ua l t o hi s or her appointed task. Most fortunate was the choice of Richard Madden as president. A typical Philomathean, l:e is earnest a nd forceful, a real leader a nd capable of holding Philo to high ideals of accomplishment. The work has n ot all been of a serious nature for jolly parties hav2 added to the memories that Philomathe~tns vvill carr y w ith th em this com ing year. Those who go and those who stay will look back up on th e frolics with a glow of pleas ure. N o matter w h ere we go let us wear our f hilo pins. Then w ill fo llo w a glad r ecognition of the old members and a greeting路 :from th e new <~ nd a wonderful exchange of m emori es of th e good times a t Philo , in Per u!

EVERETT LITERARY SOCIETY The Everett Literary Society is fortunat e in its name. Edward Eve;·ett, whose nam e is perpetuate d by this society, is foremost among American schola1 s and orator<>, and his works show the tru e literary spirit . Th e soc iety \Vas organized in 18'12. Its first aim was to reciprocate the honor which was conferred on it w1th the nam e, Everelt, :'lnd this ai1~1 remains paramount. Honor is paid this worthy literary mas ~er in ho:dmg· the soc1ety up to his id ea!s, and striving to obtain the greatest cultural training for its individual members. And the end and aim of a:J tru e edDcation is to fit the individual for soc ial se rvice. This service can be rendered best by th e individual who has a d eve lopm ent broader than that which books and the classroom alone can give. In a literary society, there is opportunity for th e dev elopment of those qualiti es which make for a large r success in co ping with mode m conditions lead ership and sr:eaking in public. Both are requisite to s u ccess in any line of work, and to a mark ed degree necessary in the teaching profess ion. Everett truly has mad e muc·h progresco.; in this line. One of the things of which the society is mo s t proud, and which h as been most enjoyed, is th e Evere tt Orchestra, co mpos ed of t e n pi ecE's. That this orchestra plays only mu s ic of the highes t class, is woTthy of note. . . . While greatest effort has been direc t ed along edu cational lm es , the soua l pha"·-' which has a very significant part in cultural training, ha s n ot been neg lected. One of the mos t enjoyable featur es of the society ha s been its pleasant soc ial events whieh have meant so much to eaeh memb er . Success in making Everett a liv e and progressive soc ie ty, and in plat'ing; it on ,1 sound literary basis is in no sma ll nwas un• due to the et-hrts of t h e advisers.

®ur §tuilrttt Qlo unril About a month after school opened, the student body saw th e n e~t I and desirability of having some student organization. Th e id e a being approved by President Caviness and faculty m e mbers, and e ndorse d by all classes, a representative committee met daily to work out details of organization. On Monday, October 17, a proposed constitution for a Student Council was submitted to and accepted by the student body as a working: basis. According to this Constitution, on the follo,;v ing Friday thirty ca ndidates for the council were nominated, each s tudent vo ting for t e n p e rs o n s. Two weeks later, ·written and s igned ballots were cast, eac h s tud e nt voting frum the list of nominees fo r fifteen people. This e lection of fifte e n student co uncil m embers was followed by an organization vv ithin th e co un c il. Elmer Wilson and Gertrude Carver se r ve d resp ect ive ly as c hairman and secretary. To the Council we owe thanks for planning th e second ::-;emester mix e l', and the basketball rallies and reception s. VV e , as a student b r>dy, at·e pround that the Student Co un cil ex is t s on our ca mpus and appreciate the effort s of th at body in working for a Greater and Detter P er u.

Every one remembers the hearty welcome given him by the Girls' Club on registration day, or perhaps some remember more distinctly the delicious punch and wafers which were served. Since that first day the Club has meant a great deal to each girl. Our first party \•v as given in September, our special guests being ihe girls of the high school. At our next party in November we entertaine .:l the "Men's Club" of the college. In February the Costume Party was a very merry occasion, and, although the boys were not invited this time, there -vvere a number of "effeminate boys" present who seemed to have as good a time as the girls. On February 17, 1922, we celebrated the anniversary of the Girls' Club third birthday, the 18th being on Saturday. All club members were decorated with gold and black ribbons, thus carrying out the colors of the club. A very fine program was given in the chapel at the regular hour und all girls took part in making the songs and yells livelier and peppier than ever. The Student Loan Fund instituted by the second year's Girls' Club has been a real help to several college girls. It is constantly being enlarged by donations from Alumni members, but this year's club will greatly swell its principal by a large gift at the end of the school year. The afternoon teas have been a decided success this year and are eagerly looked forward to by the students and faculty members of the various departments . These informal teas given each month have helped u~ to become better acquainted with one another. But behind the frolics, behind the parties and the dainty teas, has been the constant steady work of the Council, Miss Robinson, and our president, Leona Sparks. The tireless effort of these folks has made everything the club has undertaken a success, and we of the club wish to express our sincere appreciation for the help given so generously and heartily by them in making the third year of the Girls' Club one long to be r emembered.

® u r Ol l m• n The Junior class of 1921 was the best in the school; no Sophomo1·e of 1922 denies it. Have you noticed th e superior quality of th e So ph omores th is year? You see we were .Junior s last year and n ot Fres hmen. Our social activities this year hav e been a p leas ing seq u e l to thos e of las t year, which we here review. The first Junior event was a picnic. Our guides led us o ut thr u a dark winding ro a d up over the brow of a hi ll ·w he re th e s ight of f o ur beautifu l bonfires gleaming beneath the trees greeted us. Th e wh ole affair was :! regular pep meeting from the time •ve fe ll in for the first game, unti l " ·e toasted the last marshmallow over th e dy ing embers. .Just before going home we gathered around the fire and to ld jok es and gr u eso m e ghost stories. 'l he night of revelry was brought to a close with so n gs and ye lls as we wended our homeward way . Do a~y of you remember hearing about our fir s t Junior party? Tha~ was the time when we had s uch a merry scramble for coat s and caps . Of a ll the exciting games, the auto races beat them a ll. Why Barney Oldfield would be green with envy had he seen them ! W e recommend eating apples and doughnuts after attending auto races. Before long another picnic was planned, but thru some misunderstanding it rained. Numerous oil s toves and chafing dis hes found their way into the gymna sium, and the picnic progressed in a very lively manner. How the bacon s izzled! We di scovered that bacon and eggs are idea l for indoor picnics. The Junior-Senior Banquet was the biggest event of th e year. Persistent planning and working a lways bring res ult s. On this occasion th e gymnasium was tran sfo ~me~ into a sta r~it gc_trden : a blue sky, tw ink ling with stars ; a white trellis with la rge white pillars at interva ls ; huge bas kets of yellow chrysanthemums on_ t~e top of each pillar; great mounds of fern on the garden walls. The topic f~r toasts v.ras "P lay the Game" . Wh o were the Sophomores last year? Jumors! All Junior activities came to a happy climax when th e Junior girls won the basketball championship. N o class cou ld ask for anything better with which to complete a year's record. Thus you see our career as Juniors was ended, and one as Sophomores begun.

Att 1Eur of limrlrotttr Knowing that the social life of each new schoo l year must have a start, theY. W. C. A., Y. M. C. A., ~nd C. C. A. w~th the hearty cooperation of the Faculty provided a place, tim e, a nd occaswn for a jolly get-acquainted mix-up. In no time by means of a few slips of paper Labor Unions '' 'ere for med. Old friends and new friends were group ed off as Bakers, Bricklayer s, Carpent ers, Maso ns and T eachers. Our hosts and hostesses knowing th a t genial companions hip accompanies the partaking of food provid ed ice a nd cake. We just k ept on getting happier as the evening progressed so that when th e "wink" hinted of leaving every one was to o ha ppy to r egret the close, a nd s uffi ciently happy t o f orget abo ut loneliness, strangn ess, or homes ickness .

Every loyal Sophomore "路anted to come to this, the first class party, and after each one had been in the picture gallery where fellow classmen in various guises could be seen, everybody wanted to stay. The fun-loving spirit of this peppy class pervaded the entire gymnasium and building and even saturated the surrounding air outside. A fe-vv night prowlers prowling around the building caught a little of it and later s urrounded Landolts' stor e where the bricks (ice cream) were stored. The Sophomore standing reserve of Spartan-like warriors and of dauntless Amazons, bricks under arm , safely elbowed its way thru hostile lines. The hard-fought battles of Yale and Harvard in athletics, dramatics, debating and scholarship put an edge to our pep and a feather in the cap of the entertainment committee which had maneuvered to crowd a college year's activities into one evening. The light s, forgetting to blink a warning, \Yent out; co nsequently the merr y-makers gro}:ed their \Ya y out, happily anticipating the next class event.

1Fnuthall 11lmu]udn The sixteen letter men of the 1921 squad, w ho piled glory up on themselves and the old school throughout the football season , were twice blessed with banquets. How eagerly the 'gang' .~rat hered at the home of Coach Speer! Yo ~l see e\'ery fellow had heard about Mrs. Speer's culinary skill. There seemed no end of good things to eat and as course followed course, belts grew ti ; hter and vests were found tJ fit more snugly. (In fact, when Toft complained that so m ~ >J ne was throwin g stones at him , it was disCJvered th:ot t th e buttons, which had been straining at their moorings on Riggin's vest, had s uddenly released th em . selves and fiown across the table to antagonize the left guard.) Coach Sreer who acted as toast-master, made a few introductory r emarks in a hum oro us vein and handed out a plentiful supply of "sla ms ", which f urnis hed Eome heart y laughs at the expe nse of the ones who were hit. He also declared that he was mighty th a nkful for ha vi ng such a good sq uad of men to wo rk with and such a loyal student body to support the team. After an elapse of .i ust one \veek, the same squad assembled in th e dining hall of the dormitory for a second banquet. Mr. Linn certainly included ever y thing in the menu th at a football player co uld des ire. Onl v ad jectives of the s uperlati ve degree can describe the feas t . The table wa's

decorated with yellow and pink cut "mums", and in the center of th e table was a small football boy who also wore a letter sweater. After the banquet, Carl Rosenquist acted as toastmaster. and here once more a few of the many stories were told and enj oyed by all. It has been rumored that these banquets have helped a few fellow!:' decide to return next year. ~irh;'

(!lluh 1.EntertaittH

Because the time was the Saturday after Thanksgiving and after a gloriou s football victory, and because the hostesses ,,路ere the Girls' Club, this party was an unusual success. The s houts and cheers that echoed up and down the halls indicated the enthusiasm with which everyone entered into the fun of the evening. In Room 313, the horns, violins and drums employed produced little mu s ic , but shriek after shriek of laughter, (the popular music of the evening). Basketball stock went soaring in that "If you get hit, get out of the circle" game. And that three-act farce would have played havoc with the serious side of anything. The gymnasium had been transformed into a spacious dining room with seats arranged in groups of four. The _serving of creamed cheese sandwiches, fruit salad, hot chocolat_e, and . mmts b? white-capped and w hite-aproned waitresses was the chm~x o! the evenmg's entertainment. Everyone left with a warm spot m his heart for the peppy, peppy Girls' Club. ]1rl'.aqmt>tt Artiuitil'.s

We, the Freshmen of 1~22, firmly I;>elieving that li.fe should be part work and part play, have given a practical demonstration of this theory during the year. . . . . We set about our task m a logical fashwn,. and the first step in our proof was a picnic supp~r. One Sat,urda~ e~enmg at about 5 :30 o'clock we, some sixty strong, hiked to Neal s pastUI e to add another memory to those that are to be remembered always and always. And such we did for the buns and weinies were better than most buns and weinies, th~ apples were better than appl~s usually are and the coffee, the pickles, and the marshmallows were debci~us. That ca;npfire, those games in its glar~. and those songs by its glow will we forget. No, we cannot forget. 'rhen followed a period of studious activity until the first of December w hen we held a "hard time" party i~ the high school gymnasium. Th~ memory of "Bob's" alarm cloc~, Edna s bustle, and numerous other striking features will ling~r long with us. The games and refreshments were s uitable for the occaswn, and we. hope that the Sophomore's en.ioyed our can dy and apples as much as we did. Thus having prove~ our worth, we are now occupied with plans for the most important social ev~nt of the year-the Freshman-Sophomore Banquet. We mean to make this the most successful of our social activities.

the campus. Th e evening was perfect and a light s now added the real C hristmas touch to the beautiful s ur roundings. The chapel formed a fitting background for the brilliant decorations of the tree and the artistic lighting effect used in presenting the living pictures. The chorus. led by a male quartet, -vvas massed in front of the building while the scenes of the story \Yere given on the steps of the east entrance. " 0 Little To-vvn of Bethlehem" was sung as a pre-路 lude, followed by the carols, " It Came Upon a Midnight Clear," and "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing." During the s inging of these songs the story was slowly unfolded by the characters used to present it. High above, the Star of Bethlehem appeared and the Shepherds came into sight. They \vere fo ll owed by the Angels, almost too beautiful to be of earth, and then ca rne the Wise Men bearing their gifts. As the first notes of "Holy Night" ca me sweet and clear upon the evening air, the doors s lowly opened and there came into view a glorified copy of Botticelli's famous picture of the Nativity. The light r a diating from the child illumined the face of Mary bending over the manger, f ull of rapture over the div ine gift that had been bestowed upon her, while around her were grouped the Shepherds and 'iVise Men in an attitude of adoration. The music ceased, the doors closed, the Christmas celebration of 1921 bcame a memory. The progra m was characterized by a sweet r ever ence and nothing occurred to mar the solemnity of the occasion.

Wqr :tlmtb-1jrar :!illltxrr So many n ew students came in th e second semes ter that a mixer was imperative. On Saturday night, the 4th of February, practically every member of the college met at the Tra ining Building for the purpose of making new friends. After a unique entertainment in the assembly room we divided into four groups and v,路ent to the room designated by th e color of the h eart we 路wore, and th er e the m erry -making doubled, a nd trebled a nd quadrupled; yea, it had almost reached the boiling point when we were in vited to the gymnas ium w h ere the lid came off and the m erriment boiled over in the Virginia Reel. Meat sand w iches. pickles, and cocoa vcere th en ser ved a nd we h es itatingly departed for h ome feeling that it was ind eed, a m ost s uccessfu l, mixy mixer.

:拢till'u 路u Qllub iJuur ql' ou11 Though a nevv organization, the Men's Club had a pleasant, profitable year. Three events stand out, particularly. Dean Delzell's idea of starting the year with a big feed and "get-together" was certainly a happy one. President Caviness, Mrs. Caviness, Mrs. Waugh, Miss Robinson, and Mr. Speer were the guests of the evening. The feed was prepared by Mr. Linn in such fine style that nothing else in the way of food could be desired. Special talks from the guests were thoroughly enjoyed. About five weeks later, President Caviness planned a noon luncheon for the club. The first of a series of addresses delivered by different members of the Lincoln Rotary Club was given by Mr. Frank Tomson. He gave the teachers an idea of teaching from a business man's point of view. As to qualities which bring success, the speaker stated that it \Vas necessary for one to be honest, courageous, and to be willing to render service. He illustrated his point by giving the Rotary motto: "He profits most, who serves." At the second luncheon, the men had the pleasure of listening to Mr. Verne Hedge, president of the Lincoln Rotary Club. He gave them an idea of the Rotary Club and explained hov,r the members are chosen, only one member being selected from each occupation. Mr. Hedge is an abstractor of titles and told in a very interesting way how the abstract of title was made out for a certain piece of land. The Men's Club has thoroughly enjoyed the talks of the Lincoln Rotarians. In fact, the men of the school will ahvays swear by the Rotary Club of Lincoln and heartily accord in giving rousing cheers for that organization.

.:!IDlt. Nt>rttott 1Jhttt Mt. Vernon Hall has been the scene for many of the happiest gatherings that have been held in Peru. At the first of the year, we decided to have each month some kind of entertainment. For September, a get-acquainted party was imperative. Our spaciou s lawn suggested a place where we could play all sorts of games. But being hostesses, we needed guests; consequently, the boys who board at the hall \;v ere invited, for we did want to get acquainted. V/e know a Hallowe'en party in October is not unusual, but ours certainly was not any ordinary Hallowe'en party. Even the rain could not stop our fun. Since Midland had come down for a little fight with our football squad, we were glad to make them ';v elcome and to let them share our apples, doughnuts, pumpkin pie, and coffee. Thanksgiving Day furnished the occas ion for a November party. All the boys were our guests. 01.-n路 hall s~emed a little bit small when so

Hav ing done th orou g h justice to the "eats", the college champs lis tened to a t a lk by Coach Speer. H e explain ed how it had been poss ible for Peru t o have a winning team composed of all sta1·s. H e a lso expressed his appreciation of the w ay in which the student body, facu lty, and men cooperated. The Coach 's prophecy, as he sees each member of the squad twenty yea r s h ence, w as ver y interesting. Each m a n has a bright future, especially Bitzy and his fam ily of fo ur. At a ver y late h our and after each g uest h ad expressed his appreciation for th e \vo nderful feed to Mr. and Mrs. Speer, the champs went hom e decla ring that they ,~,, ould be on the hard-s urfaced floor next year if there was a n y chance fo r another fee d.

Wl1r Wrahtiug §rl1ool l~artu The Saturday evening before vacation, all the practice teacher s cast aside their p edagogical cares and fared merrily fort h to the training seh oul to be entertained by the training scho ol faculty. At the door, player s' complimentary tickets t o the Orpheum theatre were issued. Being amateur night, however, all of us ·were asked to contribute to the evening's entertainment. The amateurs were di vided into five troups or companies. Fortunately, a half h our vvas allotted to each gro up to do a little n ecessary practicing. Th ere was a very s trong incent ive to practice zealously beca use a n angelfood cake was to be awarded as the prize for the best s how . At the so und of the bell, a ll the troups filed into the theatre, which, to be exact, was the assembly room in disguise. The amateur stunts were varied in nature and evidently planned w ith the idea of provoking laughter. The Peruna P layers produced s ome "Well-Shaken Shakespea re." The Featuring Beauty Chorus staged an almost tragic, but h a ppy -ending operetta, called "Wooed, Won and ·wed.' ' The Maggie-Jiggs aggregation carried off the cake with the production, "The Bringing Down of Father" . We can h ard ly blame the judges fo1· g iving in to Maggie's awe-ins piring rolling pin . "Spring's Awakening," an interpretative dance produced by the Fairy Fantasy Group was som e thing quite different f rom Jiggs ' troubles . "Topics of the Day" as fea tured by the Future Film Service were novel and highly interesting. Th~ evening's perfo rman ce, h owever, \vas n ot altogether amateurish. The selection by the Cosmopolitan Mixed Quartette gave eviden ce of real talent. In fact, the quartette to ok the a udience by s torm and had to respond with two encores. Th e presentation of a p eppy sk it, entitled "In 1999," by "Charles Green & Co .", was truly profess ional. This forc eful bit of elrama revealed to us the change in domestic policies in 1999 w h en "The Man" sh a ll be removed from his pedestal as h ead of the h ou,.;e and will spend his evening at h ome making dresses for "baby Rollo" w hile " w ife" s pends her evenin gs at the club. As for Ruthovitch Williaminsky, \ve can say s h e is truly professional in both name and ability to dance. After the s hov,, t h e Orpheum Cafe was rushed v;ith orders for orange ice and cake. The Sophomores noted with pleasure that their ovm color s . bro'~' n and gold, had been used as the color sc h eme in the refreshments. Altogether the evenin g was one of the most m ~morab l e we h ave hac1 this year. E veryo n e declared that "you'll have to hand it to the facu lty; they kn ow h ow to entert a in. "



Wf1r 111rrllqman-&npf1nmorr 1Banquet Plans and h opes for an event which wou ld be the crown ing- one of t h e year culminated in the banquet prepared for the Sophomores by the Freshman class. Tho se who wo uld c lass th 1s event as an ordinary r ep etition of an annual affa ir, have f orgotten to con sider the entertaining c la ss. The Freshmen proved themselves unusually >; l\:ill ed in planning· a ll three phases of a banquet: d ecorations, menu, and entertainment. Each in itself was perfect. Guests h osts, and h ostesses a~ se mbl e d in the high school assembly which was transformed into a spaciou s drawing room. Mr. Cas ler , master of ceremonies, in a properly dig-nified a nd composed manner arra n ged the . line f or the grand march to th e g-ym n as iu m. But who could believe w e wer e entering the "gy1n" , for we were ushered into a veritab le roofed garden. This garden had individu ality in b e ino- created in g-reen and go ld-co lor s suggesti n g th e Freshma n c lass. A l ow roof fashioned of wide str ips of green and narrow strips of go ld was further enhanced by a strip of b lack night w hich sepa rated thi s heaven of colors from t h e green lattice work surrounding the room. Large brown ba s kets of tiny yell ow flow ers suspended from the roof f urni s h ed t h e last requisite fer a p erfect garden . Long s no w w hite tabl es were illuminated by flick ering ye llow cand les. Sm ilin g daffodils flashed before us their wealth of ye ll ow g-old, symbolic of both c lasses. vVhat proud and pleased guests to find their colors-brown and gold-adorn in g the littl e nut baskets! The ye ll ow g-rapefruit baskets decorated with little brown ribbon bows m ade c harmin g containers for the Sophomore Cocktai l. The courses were served as fo llows: Sophomore Cockta il C hi cken a Ia King Buttered New Potatoes Jellied Peas Radishes Rolls Cheese Straw Spring Salad Cake Fruited Ice Cream Coffee Mints This m e nu, prepared and served by the domestic science department, was the per-f ection of culin ary art . Pauses between courses were as enjoyabl e as the courses themselves. The orch estra numbers were much app r eciated and received generou s applause. Three special numbers- very specia l too-added mu ch to the entertainment: Mr. B eeb e's voca l solo, "Na ture's Adoration" by Ludwig; Mi ss Burton's w hi s tling sol o, "Menn eto from Don Giovanni" by Mozart, she h erself acco mpanying on the harp; Mis s Delz e ll 's so lo da n ce "The Pipes of Pan". Mr. Showalte r , the toastmaster w h o was "in d ee per than you think" quote d by way of introdu ction: The time h as come the Sophomores say, To talk of many things. Tlwn the following toasts were g iven: Of w h y we're here.... . ..... ........ .. . ··-- ·-·-- - ... Mr. McDani els Of the Sophomore year.. ...... .. ... .. . ...........

Mr. Green's sto ry of th e li ttle boy who promised t h e s uperintend ent not to kiss little girls until h e was a man, caused much laug·hte r. Each s peaker left with u s so m e t h ou ght that we can treas ure as a future guide anct h e lp .

Jrnlugur It has been said that history ought to be more than a mere catalogue of elates and we maintain that a Peruvian ought to be more than a cross between a hash-house directory and an edition of the Police Gazette. The editor tells us that he was elected editor-inchief last spring and we weren't and then he said that he would be editor all by himself. He finaiiy condescended to let us be his vassels as humor editors and we were to arrange the annual Rogues Gaiiery of the Peruvian. He shows the boys and girls in their Sunday clothes and calls them by the names their dads make out checks to, whereas, 've call them other names. His section is written in English and ours in U. S. A. You can decide for yourself which is the worst, anyway he is to blame for most of this. He drove us to it, so turn the page and don't get mad.

DONALD BLANKENSHIP, P eruna, Braska Don, as all t h e g irl s aff ectionately call h :m , is one of those creatures which you oft e n see a prett y wo m an d n 1gging· along at the end of a chain. H e thinks he is a gen e r a ! favorite with everyone in sc h ool and our h ero is especially strong for athle ti cs . H e can b e s een with a fait• ca mpa ni a n perch ed upon a stack of pillows in the center sec tion of the bl eac h ers at eve t·y ga m e a nd, in addition, ha s no mean athle ti c r eco 1d him se 1f. At the local chess tournam ent, for example, Donald brought the s pectator s t o t h ei r feet by dribblin g t h e entire length of the board and hopping il bi s h op. Don is not u s uall y rough but on on e occasion h e got ex cee dingly so and cu s sed out the t e nibl e oath "Oh P s haw" ! When that n a u g h ty Sharra r Hou se Gang launc h ed the Universal Paddling Campaign th e boy s ca m e n early s panking Dona 1 d but finally old Judge Swat decid ed that t h e de c re e m e ant only that every m an in school wa s to be paddl ed, so of course Don wa s exe mp t. A s a piani st Donald n ot onl y tickl e s the ivori es but the audien ce as w ell. Pop Sou sa him se lf mad e th e unqualifi ed s tate m ent that h e had never h eard anything like Dan's playing and it is a w e ll kn own fa c t that Caru so would g ive a lmos t anything to h ear one of hi s selec tion s . FRED ROTHERT, Harvard, Nebraska One day a co rn feel hick e m e rged f rc m the sticks in the w est ern part of th e state and land ed w ith hi s t e lescope, c ontaining all of hi s worldly po~s essions, at the Burlin gto n depot. Just why h e cho se the Burlington to convey him to hi s destination is not known, perhaps h e d ec ided that the many other lin es ente ring our Missouri river metropoli s w e1·e too p r etentious fo r so lowly a coun t r y lad. At any rate he landed s afe ly and trudg ed f e arl ess ly up th e hill to take hi s place in the bu sy life at Per~. It wa s thought by so m e fe w of u s wh o were privileged to see the comi c sight of _h 1s arrival that it would b e a diffi cult job ind eed to ·assimilate him into th e life of a typ1ca l Peruvian- and so it wa s . You ma y have guessed, you who know him by s ig ht, that this lad of whom w e write is "Fritz" Roth ert. On e clay when Fritz was a lad h e re~d Hawthorne' s s tory of "The Great Stone Face" and the s tory took su ch a grip on h_15 rather weak and chi ldi s h mind that h e d ec'd ed to take this character as his model m life. How we ll he s u cceed ed in m is interpretin g th e " Grea t Ston e Fac e" may be det e rmined by one g lan ce at hi s s t e rn , ro cky, ex press ionl ess coun te n a n ce . Fritz tries to po se as a woma n hater but h e can't pull that old s tuff off on this bunch of ow ls, bec-ause we kno'..v darned w e ll that th e on ly reason h e is n ' t a socie ty man is becau se h e is so c rude and homely.

co me from th e p e n of so m e member of the staff or thru their diligent labors. On the other hand, if th e r e is any part of th e book which does not meet your approval we f ee l s ure that it is from th e clum sy pen of K e lly or through his bungles ome work. Perhaps our self-righteou s attitud e can be e xcu sed when you take into consideration the w ea risom e ta s k we have had in trying t o ge t K elly to work. But perhaps you don ' t know thi s foul ball when you see him; w ell he is an easy person for us to point o ut to you b ec au se he 's the only guy on the campu s who looks like an undeveloped co rn s talk. Oh , h e ha s a " k een " fi g ure w e can t ell you; one day he fell down on the s id ewalk and split t h e con c rete s nw ck dab in two because hi s elbows and knees were so _sharp. ~i s _figure is not the only cutting thing about him, howe ve r; he has a tongu e pOi son e d w1th m solen ce and sa n:asm whi ch he use s with telling eff ec t. We don't suppose that K e lly ·w ill let thi s s tuff get b y hi s editorial sh eers but w e just had to write it to reli eve our mind s . ELMER WILSON, P eru , Nebraska are about to make you a cquainted with the s upre m e egotis t of the P eru campus. Perhaps though, we have made a wrong s tart beca use if you have attended P e ru in this, the year of our publication , you are s ure to have noticed thi s man of colossal co n ceit who so willingly thrust himse lf before the public gaze, and s o no formal introdu ction will be n ecessar y. W e f eel that it is our duty , however , to set to right the de luded id ea whi ch some one or two of his fri ends (he only has one or two) m ay have in regard to his c haracter and integrity. It took u s about two clays to get hep to this would-be Napoleon but we don ' t exac tly see that it is our fault because when we asked him who the most prominent personage in Peru was , h e r eluctantly admitted that he g·uessed he was about the most important guy in the outfit. So you seewh en he admitted it him self, what w er e we to do but believe him? At least, as w e say, for a day or two. V ery shortly after school started, for he is an en ergetic piece of cheese and does not allow th e rats to nibbl e. h e started propaganda for the organization of a Student Council, with the und er s tanding, of course, that h e was to be th e big firework s . Following his elect'on he proceeded to the Pres id ent' s office and told Prexy that th e way in which he (Prexy) was runnin g the s chool was the bunk and that it would have to b e stopped right away . " Do you und er stand ?" h e says to Prexy. A s an agitator and apple-knocker h e has no equal. What strikes us as being particularly humorou s is hi s attitude of kingly s uperiority. Can ' t you just picture him with his ch est inflate d, hand a cross hi s breast in Napol eanic fashion, survey in ~ h' s Peruvian kingdom? In a loud commanding· voice, lik e the roar of a thou sand lion s , he exclaims, "I am the mighty Wil son. Fall ye down at m y feet a nd do m e homage, th e Maker and I have dec icl n l that this is my domain. " '~' e

T e a c het·s mu st n ot atte nd college beca u se of tenible temptation offered b y Lad y Nico ~ in e.

The Stat e Board of Edu cation f o rma!ly d ec r eed that t eachers of the state were not t o b e given " leaves of absence" to continu e education at Columbia, Chicago, or 1'\m·thwcstern on a ccount of the preva len ce of the cigar e t te habit a mong the stud ent;;. The Stat e Board , r ea li z in g t hat t he t ea ch er s employ ed in Nebi·aska are creatures of low moral s t a ndards, a nd parti cularl y s u sce pt:bl e to evil habits, have barred the t ea-: h ers from th e lea din g ed ucational in s titution s in the country so that they ma y not bec0me c ig are tte a ddi cts. Of course th e Board beli eves it is do"ng a rare act of charity in pa ss ing s uc h a d e cr ee, but w e wond e r if their "Holi er than thou" attitude should not b e mark e d as a choi ce bit of humor. \V e would only remind the stern fathers of t h e Board that th e o ld maxim "C harit~· s hould begin at hom e," is no t a n ew saying but o ne often quoted by ge ntl e m en of th e ir own time. Of course w e concede th e ri g ht of the Board to legis late sc h ool m atte r s· but we wonder if it is possib' e for a group of politi c ian s who infest th e hall s of th e legi s lat ure wh er e toba cc o s moke can be s liced with a kni fe and law m a k e r s are eve r prac ticin g· th e gentl e art of s hoo tin g the brown juice into th e bras s c u sp idors, t o be wholly un tai nted by t he ir s urroundings. The qu estion we have finall y arrived at is this: Are the State Board fath ers forcing a c ampai g n issu e or do th ey see th e fo ll y of the ir ways and are t hey t r y ing to s t eer the coming gen e rati o n aright"?

But if the ink is thin and has insinuated itself into the fabric, a pair of scissors or a can-opener 路will be effective. Cut carefully around the edges of the ink spot, being careful not to damage the cloth, after this is done the ink spot can be removed ' vith ease. In the treatment of an ink spot, blotters are sometimes useful. ATTENTION STUDENTS! Don't worry over your ro om rent and board bills, all houses in Peru are supported by a foundation.

Jrruuianant irfi SPECIAL CHAPEL Another splendid program was rendered (used by request) Monday at Ch<~pel. The program had been well advertized in the Peru Pedagogian and by Dean Delzell so there was a large crowd of perhaps twenty persons in attendance, among them it is rumored, were some of the Faculty members. The meeting was opened with devotionals conducted by Mr. Leo Faunce. After this Dean Delzell favored us with some of his annnouncements (interspersed with usual number of .iokes from the 1914 Peruvian). He laid particular stress on the fact that the students are getting the ,ndks dirty by continual travel on them and they must reform and in the future "keep on the grass •·. The rest of the morning's program -vvas occupied by community singing. The execution of "Old Zip Coon" was especially en.ioyed by all. There is a persistent rumor that Vladmir Jis& is the composer of this delightful ditty, if this rumor becomes authenticated friends of "Vlad" have little hope of him ever living to a peaceful conclusion. After a few more songs Chapel was dismissed because of the fact that the audience had entirely disappeared with the exception of the janitor who remained to lock up. Students have expressed the hope that all our chapels may be as inspiring and beneficial as this one. Willy: Dodo:

"I didn 't meant to break off your train of thought." "Oh, that's all right. It was only a freight anyway."

Behn: Poole:

"Did you ever see the Catskill Mountains?" "No, but I've seen 'em kill mice."

Miller: My head aches terribly this morning. Dentist (absent-mindedly) : vVhy not have it filled? This weather reminds one of the seats in a Ford car. How's that? Just enuf spring to make you sore. Mildred Barnes: What did papa say when you told him your love for me was like a gushing brook? Burley: He said "Damn it". Wilcox: Where did you do most of your skating while learning ? Lois Tyson: I think that's a rather personal question. Neighbor: Look here, sir, your dog has .iust eaten one of my chickens. Borland: Thanks for the information. I won't give him any dinn er. Prokop to Prof Paul: I am indebted to you for all 1 kno w. Prof. Paul: Don't mention it. It's only a mere trifl e.

A Gateway to Progress There it stands-a simple forty-foot gateway but unlike any other in the entire world. Through it have come many of the engineering ideas tha t have made this an electrical Am erica.






The story of electrical d evelopment begins in the Research Laboratories. Here the nling spirit is one of knowledge- truthrath er than immediate practical results. In this are established new theoriestools for future use-which sooner or later find re:1dy application. The great industries th a t cluster around Niagara Falls, the electrically driven battleships, t~e trolley cars and electrified railways tl: at carry m ill ions, the lamps tha t glow in hom es and streets, the household conveniences that have relieved women of drudgery, the labor-saving e~ectrical tools of factories, all owe th eir existence, partly at le3st, to the co-ordinated efforts of the thousands who daily stream through this gatewa y. .
