ADMINISTRATION

FOR KNOWLEDGE ITSELF IS POWER .BACON-


W. R. PATE. A.B. Mr. Pate has been president of the Pe ru State T eachers C ollege s ince August of 192 :;. In these two years in which he has been with us, he has won the love and resp ect o f one and all. So Peru hono rs h er president not o nl y for the noble way in which h e has ai<.led in build ing up the school, hut for his admirable personality and char<Lctc r. Mr. P a te has hl'Cn in school w ork in Nebraska for twe nty-eight years . He rece ived his education a t the University of N ebraska, and is a member of Phi Delta Kappa, and the School Master's C lub.


Progress For Peru ~VER YTHING

which does not move forward stag\..:J. nates. Still water becomes impure; an unused arm atrophies; even a quiescent, self satisfied civilization hold s its own only for a time and then retrogrades to the low er level from whence it came. So it is with education . The knowledge that would have been sufficient a thousand years ago , or a hundred years ago,-aye, even a generation ago , will not suffice for the present generation. During a portio n o f the Middle Ages Europe became apathetic toward educa t io n and failed to reach forward for new knowledge. Soon th e knowledge that it had taken centuries to accumulate became lost to the great mass of people and generation aft er gen eration groped in mental darkness before the awakening occurred. Likewise a T eachers College that does not have a progressive program, that does not look forward to newer a nd better things in education, that does not give to its students the cream of subject matter and method as determined by the latest investigations,-the T eachers C ollege that does not do these things will fail to measure up to its full responsibility. May we of the Peru Faculty and Student body consecrate our time and talents to the end that Peru may continue t o be known as a T eachers College abreast of the times. W . R. PATE, President.


COLONEL T. ]. MAJORS Presid ent of State Cfeachers Co ll ege Board of Edu cation Colonel T. j . Majors has again been elected to the presiden cy of the State T eachers College Uoard of Educatio n. Throug h the years of s truggle and strife, no o ne has foug h t harder fur o ur Alma Mater than has the Colonel, and we honor him accordingly.

W. N . DELZELL Dean and Extension Dh·ector Since h is graduation from this institution in 1894 , Mr. Delzell has ever been a staunch and steady friend of Old Peru. Since 1905 , he has been on the Peru facu lty- the first to welcome the new students, a nd the first to greet the old, returning.

INICE DUNN ING D ean of Women and Preccpt,·css As Dean o f Women , Prece ptress at 'v!t. Vern o n Hall, and sponsor of t he Girls' Club, Mrs. D u nning has th is year, through her co· operation, enthusiasm, and "mothering" won the love of every College girl.·· Mrs. Dunning is a former Peruvian, comin g to us from Alliance.

THE NEW COLLEGE The yea r I 9'2 I nurk.:d a new cpuch in Peru 's history as impo rtant and far·reac h· ing as w as the establishment of the Nnrmal fiftv · fnur years before. O ur school on Ju ly I , 19'2 I , heca me a State Tea~·he rs Cnlleg·..: in name as we ll as in fact. The drea m of h un dreds o f a lumni cam e true. In fact Peru had hec n issuing Bachelor of Eduea· tinn d egrees s ince 190l-> w hich represented two years college work abov~ the two-yea r Normal cou rse. T en yca•s later- in 19 1R- Pcru met the collegiate requirement for the right to issue a n A. B. Deg ree in Ed ucat ion, a nd thrc.: years later the State Legisla ture oflici;d ly nude P e ru (t og-ether with her three siHer St<tte Teachers T ra ining In· st itutions ) a State T eache rs College. Peru needed very lit tle cha nge to become ;t stanclard T eachers College, so was the first of the state schools in th e state to cast n ff the Normal school cloak a nd wea r the fu ll regalia of a Stat.: T eachers College. In the Fall nf 192 1 the students we re cla ssifi·~d a~ College Freshmen and Sophom-o res ( I I th and 12th grades) of the N orm1l and w e re t ra ns ferred to th e tra ining school wh ich became a twelve-grade Demonstr:t· t ion H ig h School.

Those " blaz ing the tra il" da ys gave for Peru a solid fo undation u pon w hich to build :t College, which is unsurpassed in the Missouri Valley.

Class History J-c<HE word " H istory" brings a vision of a textbook and a student poring over it \...) trying to remember that which he has had to le;LrJ1. 13ut .. C lass His tory." The picture is very different over a textbook because C lass History is not fo un J there. Nor does it have to be learned. Instead, it is a par t of us. I n th is picture is found the smiling faces of friends, and you can hear th e sound nf laughter. Those of you who were here last year can easily play agai n th;tt ga m e of New O rleans and can hear the sides squabbling over wh ich had won . Wh y did w e al l have such a pleasant limo:: at our first freshman party? Because there was laug h t..; r and the good will of friends. These same qualities were present when someone stole the wein·. ;rs we had gotten for our weiner roast. T hen at convocation \\e got station H -E-L-P over the first r;tdio set up in the Chapel. Help was brought in by friends in the for m of music ;lllc.i com ic entertain ment. We never could have cleaned the athletic slope so thoroughly if we h aJ not heen a body of friends working together to the accomp;U1iment of l;lllg hte r. Or proha hly , to be more exact, laughing together to the accomp;tniment of work . Just to mention our banquet is enough. Evr~yo ne he re knows it ta h:s h ard work by friends to make a banquet. This year has just been a continua tion of last year's good times and friendships. T he old and new friends had a get- together at the Sophomore mixer. The n we all went to the movies. T here were other parties where laughter and friendsh ips were prominent . Then d ean-up day came aga in. We were promoted to the campus to dig dande lions. Although there were reports of sore knees and blistered ha nds no one wou ld willingly have missed the fu n. And the beautiful Freshman -Sophomore b;tnquet which we so thorough ly enjoyed . We know the time and hard work, by friends, necessary to make a hanqu ct worth while. W e spent class day in a most enjoyable manner because we w er e with f ri ends, and where there are friends there is laughter, and la ug hter means happ iness. Our grad uation concluded our activities for the year. Then the time for departur...:. "Freshmen, when this time comes to you, you will wonder as w e do w hy you ha te to leave." T hen perhaps you can understand what someone felt when he saic.l: ·"From quiet homes and fi rst heginn ings Out to undiscovered ends, There is nothing worth the wear of w inn ing But laughte r and the love of frie nds."

Class of 1928 ~HE class of 1928 started out on its college career with the largest enroll me n t of \ . . ) any class for severa l years. One hundred seventy -fou r were enrolled tn thts class which accomplished so much in the past year. From the very first the Freshmen were prominent in all school activities. There was no organi zation in w hich this class was not well represented . T he Peru Dramatic Club is one of which any college could feel justly p roud . Six teen Freshmen were selected in the trv-nuts to become mem bers of th is club The class has also been represented in fore t{sics. Fulton Davenpo r t, a Freshman, was nne of the mem!:lers of the College D ebating Soc!ety which won al l the debates of the past s'<!ason. The College Orchc~tra and Glee Clubs had a large number of Freshme n as m em bers. T hey participated in " The Rose M aiden," the musica l cantat;t w h ic h rcccivcJ much favorable comment from all who witnessed it.

T he class was also wd l represented in the Philoma th ~an and Evere tt Litcrar f Soc ieties, Y. W. C. A., Y. M . C . A., C. C. A. , Episcopal Gu ild, G . A. A., S. 0 . A. P., and T omcats organiza tions. The class as a whole has loyally supported all fo rms of a thletics. F ive m e n, \Vilhert Zorn, Howard Bath, Lewis Carter, Arthur Gariss, and Eve rett H eywood, won letters in football. Arnold Sclk received a letter in haskctha ll. In the track m en the Freshmen made a fine showing. W onderful prospects arc held for the pa rticipants who will be here again next year. No one can deny that the girls are also held in highest regard in the ath letic wo rld. In the inter-class tournaments the Freshman girls wo n in both soccer and basketball . Several girls received their letters in ath letics. Everyone looks forward to the Sophomore- Freshman Banquet, which is o ne of th e chief events of the year. The Freshmen entertained the Sophomores at the annu;tl banquet M ay 1, 1925. T here were two hundred fifteen persons present. The decorations were unique and beautiful. P anels of conventio nal flowers were placed a lo n g the walls and hung from the ceiling. T he entrance to the r()()m was ba nked w ith boughs and beautiful wild flowers. - A soft, beautiful light was cast over th e room through the vari-colored shades. Music was furnished by the college o rchestra u nder the direction of Mr. Jindra . The beauty and success of the banq uet was due to the untiring efforts of the cla:..s sponsor, M iss Ebersole, the com mittes who were placed in charge, Miss Kettuncn and the Art Department.

Senior Class History N 1921 -22 a group of ~reen little Freshmen sought Peru High School. There, wit h due n:spect for the up per classmen, they struggled through their first ye:tr of Hig h S::hool. That first yea r was markec.l with the usual program, partie:;, athletics, and class picnics. C lass colors we re chosen and th rough fou r years, never has that blue faded or the golc.l tarnished o r soiled. T he Sophomo res cnntril,u ted their share to High Schlx11 activities, taking a keen interest in all that went on. They proved their ability to shoulc.l.::r d ifficult problems hy makin)! a success in eve;·yth ing they attempted. The following year, the J un :m s \\'ere the pepp:est class in school, taking active pan in everything. The c.l:stinguishing event of the Junior yea r was the Jun ior-Senior trip to Fa lls Cit}'. The excursion was a d.::cic.led success. All plants must grow and bloom, !'<1 in 1924-2 'i the hud of 1921 -22 blossomed into a full blown flower, and fifL y-two Seniors received diplo mas. The Sen ior class is full of lcac.lcrs, who will make names for th cm ~clves in various vocations in the coming years. The Seniors boastec.l the captain anc.l five additional players on the fighting Bob Kitten football team ; whik four Senior hoys made their basketball !·e tters. To the g irls' basketball team the Seniors contributed five pla ye rs. On the debating sq uad there were th ree Seniors. The Senior class prese nted "The C harm School," a comedy in three acts by Alice Duer Miller and Robert Milton, April :;o. It was a ckver play with all characters wel l portrayed. This pla y was a success, thanks to the untiring efforts of Mrs. Buena Lee M ead, who so generously gave her time in coaching "The C harm Schoo l. " The Juniors treated the Seniors to a very delight fu l trip to Sycamore Springs. Neec.lless to say, the occasion was one of k·zen enjoyment. On May 5, the Seniors had their first Class Day. Everyone assembled in front of the Trainers building .tt S o'clock, armed with spoons, hats, wraps and other weapons fo r the battle of the day. With accidents no more serious than a puncture, we reached Beat rice in due time. After a delicious dinner the class visited the various places of interest in the city. To the coming Senior classes we wish to say, "May your high school days be as full of color and joy as ours have been. "

SOPHOMORES Spring has rolled around once more With it, brilliant kids galore. They are of the Sophomore class And they can a nyone surpass. The record fo r 192 5, Has been of one full y alive. There were parties and picnics At those we had fun ; And clever thi ngs pulled off, A t which no one threw puns. O ur presidents, Juhl and Briggs, Were like horses hi tched to riggs, For they always pulled us thru The mires we got into.

In foo tball we highly have scored, N one of our men were ignored; In basketball, too, we were there, A nd the ga mes we have played we played fair. In '27 we'll graduate, And after that we'll decide our fa te; Whether or not to college go, O r earn our salt with spade and hoe. But now in closing we've got to say, That yo u must hu nt for many a day, If an ywhere in this world you 'II fi nd A more honest bunch and ki nd , Than the Sophomore of 192 5.

Everett Literary Society " 'E, w ho are members of the Everett Li terary Society, are proud of the prog ress \J} our organization has made du ring this school year. T he first semester o ur time and efforts were d irected toward the staging of the an nual produ ction. T he second semester \Ne institu ted a new series of programs which we felt wou ld be more tru ly representative of what a literary society should be. T he entir-e member路 ship was d ivided into separate groups and each group was made responsible fo r a program in which every member of that group should take part. A t each of o ur meetings a un it of thought has been carried out ; for instance, one night India was d iscussed from many d iff.ae nt aspects, th e l ite~ary, the musical, and the huma n standpoints, particularly. T his plan has proved most successful, for not onl y have we had an ever-increasing attenda nce at our meetings, but ou r progr ams have been both interesting and instructive ,tt the same time. A nd now, just a word of appreciation for our sponsor , M iss Emily Burton. O nly those w ho have worked with her could possibly appreciate her worth, fo r it is to M iss Burton that much of this year's success is d ue. Page 80

Philomathean Society J-c<HE Philomathean Society in the year 1924-2 5 has proved its wurth . Its larger \.....) membership has been conscientious, has helped to promote the welfare of the organization at every o pportunity, and has established its st;tndin g as o ne o f t h路.: most active organizations on the Peru campus. In September the soc iety star teu wit h Edward M atejovsky as president. The second semester A rleene Ritchie p r esided in the same position. N ew members were taken in the first of the year, and init iated at a successfu l P h iln party. The second semester a party again initiated more new members. The programs, arranged by program committees have been of thei r Philoma th eao1 quality. Mr. Albright, the advisor for this year, has heen the hest a society could desir~ . U nder his guidance the Philos have kept up to the top notch . T he Philo Road Show was a decidde success and deserves credit. P a g e 84

Girls' Club :r-c=<HE Girls' Club is the only organization on the campus \.vhich has as its am1 ~

the furthe ring of a spirit of social unity among all the students. T o furtk~r this aim, a series of teas have been given throughout the year to which students in the different departments have been invited. The teas were very carefully plan ned as to appropriate decorations and refreshments. A red letter day on th.: Girls' Club calendar was the H allowe'en party gtven :lt Mt . Vernon H all. It was a mammoth undertaking and its success was rel atively g reat. Another big event was the Valentine Costume Party which we will remember chiefly fo r its harmonizing beauty of detail. The annual play was give n on M arch 2 5. It was the " Princess Kiku," a production most lovely to look upon as it depicted for us the beautiful land of the Cherry Blossoms. The proceeds from this play went to help swell the Student Loan Fund maintained by the club to help those students who are financially unable to continue their ed ucation. It is by carrying on the Student Loa n Fund from year to year th:tt the G irls' Club is rendering its g reatest service to the school.

~HE P eru Y. W . C. A. was organized an d received its permanent char ter Octo ber

19. The first membership of this org~nization was made up of abo ut twelve girls. I t 1ncreased from year to year, and th1s year the on e hundred mark was reached. The Y. W. C. A . was one of th e relig ious organizatio ns o f th e C ollege sponsorin g th e Stude nt Fr iendsh ip Fund drive. We were indeed fortunate in having Professor Albright d iscuss pa rty issues and can didates of the presidential campaign. J ust before the College cl osed for vacatio n a special d rive among the members was put on fo r the purpose of makin g sever al needy fami lies of Peru happy on Ch ristmas day. I t was with great pleasure we welcomed Miss Fran ces Perr路; National Secretary o f th e Rocky Mountain Division o f the Y . \V . C. A. Her visit was a so u rce o f inspiration to all of us and we trust sh e will be able to come to o ur campus again ne xt yea r. At the su gg ~ stion of Miss Perry we held a Charm School, a series o f meeti ngs which were ve r y h elpful to all of us. After the Char m School another project, the Community, was taken up in order that the girls who teach next year might have a better realizat ion o f the r esponsibilit ies o f th e teacher so far as the comm unity is concerned . A very successfu l Y . W. year was closed with an all-membership picnic. T r uly the Y. W. C. A . motto, .. Not by might, n o r b y power, but by my spirit. saith the Lord of H osts,.. has made itself in our association together.

College C atholic Association \.vas organi zed by M iss Eleanor-e Ltll y, Su per\....) visor in Tra ining School, in 1907. Miss Lally was a very devout woman ; hroadminded and ve ry liberal in her r eligious belief, w hich made her an ide;,! leader fo r the fi rst State College C atholic A ssociation. The first room was fixed U[) in the O ld N or mal H all and was o ne of the most beaut ifull y furnished rooms on the cam pus. During the advisorship of Miss lv1ary Mullen, Domest ic Science teacher and g rad uate of Peru, started a very important movement, which we arc still fosteri ng, of the erect ion of a chapd ncar the cam pus. A t times w hen there was no member of the Catholic church o n the fac ulty, other members have kind ly acted in that capacity. During the summer school, of w hich M r. Delzell was advisor, over $ 100 w1s subscribed towards the furthering of our chapel. At present we have a nice room in the new Aud itor ium w here we hold our services every other Saturday. R ev . .J. A . Maichler of N ebraska C ity, N ebraska, has co-operated with the association in all its activities. W e look forward to a future time whe n we shall have a permanent chapel and a real , live orga ni zatio n in P eru. P n !<"C 93


S. 0. A. P. ~HE S. 0. A . P. is a new organization on the campus this year and was in ~ stitu ted by a body of girls who wished to promote ath letic enthusiasm and pep among the girls. T he bulwark upo n which the club rests is loyalty to O ld Peru . The orga nization is open to all girls who will take an active part m promoting school spirit.

The S. 0. A. P. made its first public appearance the morning the football boys left for the championship game with Chadron. The club, in co-operatio n wit h its brother organization, the T omcats, nex t assumed the r esponsibility of giving to th~ State C hampionship Football Team of Peru a banquet; an achievement of which we are justly proud. Throu~hout the year the S. 0 . A. P. girls have faithfully attendeJ every athletic event on the campus and by means of stunts between halves and concerted w hole-hearted yel ling, have made their name recog nized and respected. Our sponsor , Mrs. M ae M iller Beck, has been loya l through all the difficulties attend ing the development of a new organization. It is intended that the organization become a permanent institutio n on the campus and to th is purpose new officers have been elected for the ensuing year. Great things are expecLed of th is infant organization in the years to come and those who have put forth their best efforts to make it a success will watch its deve lo pment with keen interest and pride.

College Debate J-c<HE debating season of 1925 was entirel y successf ul, for hoth Tark io College \....) and Maryville, Missouri, State T eachers College were taken uown to J cfeat. It looks good to see debate, in w hich P eru used to he a school of inter- state reputation, once more revived and pushed to the front. T he debating class is the foundation of the debating team . I t meets as a regu larly scheduled class and meets the first three quarters. From this c lass th e teams arc selected, and not every member gets to represent the sehoul, o nl y those proving th e ir ability to debate. T he T arkio debate was held at Tar kio, Mo., anu the team makin g th e trip W ' l S Roy C hamberlain and Roscoe Wright who represented the P eru N egative team. This was a close and interesting debate and P eru has been able to get the promise o f another event with T arkio for next year. The M aryville debate was at home and the team has been called Peru's 'Banta m s. " A Freshman and a little Senior, but, my wh at pep when they beca m e excited. Fu lton Davenport and Clarence Spiech were the Peru team agai nst M a r yvil le. T he coaching this year was done by our History teacher, M r . A lbrig h t, and h e is already making plans for bigger and better dehate for next ye;tr.

Their work this year serves as a stepping stone for better work in the future, and in antieipat io n of the fact that some of the best debaters will be a vailablc next year the prospects for a successful season for the year 192 5-2 6 arc most encouraging.

State Championship Football Squad

Q

O A CH GRAF'S smile was broader than usual after he had walked down on the football field on October 8, and inspected the fif ty -six m en who had an swered his first call. Of the fift y-six prospects twelve were lette r m en. At center the veteran Schneider was back, and with Higgins as a sub the positio n needed little a t tention. Captain Gilkeson, A ll-State end of '2 3, took his old positio n, but it w:1s necessary to develop someone to replace Frary for the other w ing. Carter and P arriot were chosen for the work, and they did it well. Mila m, All-State center o f last year, was shifted to tackle and he and Higgins were used a lternately in this positio n. Weimer, playin路g his old tackle, continued to break up plays hehind the opponen t's line and could be depended on for a gain whenever called u pon to carry the ball. Gariss, a new man from T ecumseh , develo ped into a real g uard. Williams got his chance and made good as a guard when Matthews was la id up with injuries. This was the line against which no team in the confer ence was able to make a to uchdown. With Bitzie, All-State fullback, Edie and Buising, star halves, a nd Delzell a t q u a rter, all going in fine shape, and with Zorn and Bath at ha lves, Cowel\ at full , and McElroy at quarter the coach had a backfield that a lways gave a good accoun t o f itself. It was a team such as this, a coach such as Lo n R . G ra f, a faithful second string, a loyal student body and al umni that enabled Peru to w in her first state conference championship. W e are sure that this year's splend id co-oper atio n a nd su ccess w111 be reflected in even a larger attendance of high school athletes at P eru next year.


THE TARKIO GAME On O ctober 3. Umpire G owd y. Kansas U . blew his whi~tl e at Tarkio. Mo .. summ on ing the Bobcats of 1924 to come fo rth to th eir fi rst battle. Th e Bobcats. wh o had th e importance o f win nin g the fi rst game ;;o fir ml y instill ed into th eir minds by Captain Gil keson , received th e summons and acted. Th e l ::'. t o 0 score indicates that Ta rkio h oped to wipe out former Peru defeat s, and that the Misso urians fo u ght a good fi g ht. Bit:ie made the fir st touchdown on line sma shes. The aer ial attack o f Tarkio in the l a~t par t of the game was q uite success ful for a time. but an in tercepted pass in th e last quarter gave Bit:ie th e oppor tu nity fo r a sensatio nal 85路 yard run fo r th e second touchdown.

THE TABOR GAME Peru made its " second invasion o f the East" on O ctober 1O, wh en the Bobcats ran wild and d efeated Tabor College 47 to 0. Ta bor was com pletel y outplayed . G ariss, W eimer. Sch neider and Parriott starred in the li ne. while lo ng run s by Edie and Z o rn. and th e general路 shi p of "Little Mack" feat ured the wo rk o f the backfi eld. Peru demonst rated an abil ity to use th e pass successfull y in the seco n d half and Bit:ie's toe was give n a vacation .

THE KEARNEY GAME Peru won the first confer ence game of the season by defeat in g Kearney 16 to 0 on the Peru grid iro n. After allowin g the A n telopes to spend th eir energy in a n unsuccess fu l attack that covered th e first half, th e Bobcats cam e back in the seco nd half an d smoth ered them with an o ffense which they could not withstand . At no t ime during th e game did Kearney come with in scor ing d ista nce o f Per u's goal. This game was featu red by better team work. an d the prediction was made that Peru would cause some su rprises before th e season was over. Th e quarterback work of M cElroy, "Little Mack," in th e second half was sen satio nal. Th is w.ts "Littl e Mack' s" last game ; appendicitis got him.

" ] EN" PARRIOTT,

Forward (Captain -elect)

"Jen .. has the natural physique, com bined with good actio n and several yea rs' experie n ce in Peru Prep. He is a plugger. never missing a night of practice: and he always wo rk s hard. He devel oped a good eye for the basket, some of his sh ots be in g alm ost ph e nomenal. His big chance ca me in the Wesleyan game where his fluke goal enabled the Bobcats to keep th eir re cord untarnished. He will make a captain worthy of the team.

BtTZIE,

Guard.

A ll-State

Buettgenbach is a big. strong and rough athlete. Th e latter quality is not so much because of his desire to mix th e bone crushing sport with the cage pastime but rather in h is earn.:: st endeavor to play the game hard an d fast. ln addition to being a good defen sive m an h e h as :-t good eye fo r the basket at lon g range and during the past season t h e strawberry thatched guard has fr equently trotted up the court to sink th e needed points. Bitzie wi ll be the h ub of next year' s offense.

GILKESON,

Forward.

All -State

T he Lincoln Star says o f Cilk: "He came into h is own th is year. H e plays a fast floor game. is quick to size up plays and is always a scori n g threat... Gi lk is a studen t of basketba ll as he is of football , and possesses a th orough knowledge of th e game. Th is is h is third year with t he Bobcats -his second year on the All-State. P age 12 0


Dhuh continued to wre.:k h i,; oppo nent"s scorin g mad1inery this season an d established beyond question his ability a,; a ~t ati o nary guard . His noor wo rk was an impro\'ement over that o f last year. Three subs fe ll otf the ben ch and the coach dro pped his stop wat:h when Dhuh dribbled und er the basket and shot the first field goal he had attempted in his thr ee years of coll ege basketball .

S<.HNEIDER,

Forward

"Art" proved his ability to come back in basketball as in football.

While some said his

style of play brought back reminiscences o f the old 路tim e game. he dro pped them through the hoop just a s regularly as any member of the team. H e was full o f fight and possessed a cool h ead. It took a good man to fit into a co mbinat;o n that had been playing together two years . ln jmies received in the Wesleyan game kept him o ut the remaind er of the season .

WEIM ER,

Ce11ter.

All-State

Th is is Ted's third year o n the All路State. H e man euvers h is 19) pounds on the basketball noor so th at h e is the talk of the conference. This season both his ability to shoot baskets and his noor work were an improvement over last year's. It was T ed' s cool head that directed th e fight on th e Coyote noor that ,路.as lar~ely responsible for that victory. Quoting from 'Th e Star: "Wei mer was the unanimous cho ice for center. H e breaks fast. is all over the noor. and ha ndles himself with c ase. havi ng bee n a me mber of the Peru team since it started its w inning streak."

Buisi ng won his letter this year playin g his fir st season o f coll ege basketball. H e develo ped rapidly toward the close of the season . His aggressiveness and alertn<?ss combi n ed with his speed. will undoubtedly make him on e of the b~st guards in the conference n ext year. It was Buisi ng who helped save the day at Wesleyan after Bitzie and Dhub had been taken o ut o n "personals."

CONKLE ,

Forwa1路d

"Conk" is a product of Lincoln H i and Peru Prep. He possesses a burst of speed and plays a great fl oor game. The t eam work of Conk and his co路partner Selk in th e Doane ga me here was one of the best exhibitions of the season.

CowELL,

Cente路r and Forward

" Buck" was used at both center and forward. He had his initial trainin g at Peru Prep. In two years of playing, he never missed a practice. He plays a clever fl oor game and should be an outstanding man next year.

SELK,

Forward

"Shorty" is one of those small men possessed with speed and almost perfect co路ordi n ation on the basketball floor. He has a good eye for basket shootin g and is a stron g believer in t eam play. H e is shift y and uses his head . Shorty comes from Scotia wh er e he was a star performer.

-.• Basketball Season of 1925 J-c:<HE Bobcats, with a lineup of veterans, began their march for another State ~ C hampionshi p by defeating the famous H askell Indians on the Peru floor. A lthough the Bobcats had some trouble in locating the basket, the team wJs showing mid-season form and the result was never in doubt. The following Friday Cotner, considered one of the strongest teams in the Conference, bowed to Peru. C lose guarding by both teams kept the score down. P laying their last home game until Febru ary 28, the Bobcats walloped the Grand Island quintet by a score of 25 to 16. The coach used a number of subs, and they showed up well, leading the Zebras until the first string was put in . The two·game series away from home resulted in a 36 to 6 romp over the Doane Tigers and a hard-fought victory, won by the na rrow margin of th ree points, over the Cotner Bulldogs. Cotner is always a dangerous op· ponent on her own floor. After a " P" C lub benefit game in which the Syracuse American Legion was defeated by a 54·2 ) score, the Bobcats made a three-day road trip, defeating H astings, Grand Island, and Kearney on three successive nights. Peru a vcraged 3 5 points per game on this trip. O n the next trip York was disposed of easil y, but Wesleyan threw a real scare into the Bobcats. Peru had snatched the State C hampionship from \Vesleyan near the close of the season last year and W esleyan d id not intend to let them repeat. After Dhub and Bitzie were taken out on account of personals, it looked as if nothing could save the day. Then Schneider in· jured his knee and Parriott was sent in. The score was 16 to 15 in favor of W esleyan with but a few minutes to play. A foul was called on one of the Bobcats. After the tr y for goal one of the Wesleyan men passed the ball to Parriott by mistako!. " ] en" could think of but one thing to do and he did it. A s the ball passed through the hoop, another State Championshi p had been annexed. Wesleyan took the defeat like the true sports they are, and the following night came to the home of the Bobcats to fight another good fight, though losing by a much larger score. T he District High School T ournament was held at Per u the next week and the visiting athletes had the opportunity of seeing the Bobcats defeat York, H astings, and Doane on three succes· sive nights. Thus ended the greatest basketball season in Peru's history, a season that saw Peru hang up a world's record for successive college victories.

District High School Tournantent J-c<HE success of the Fourth District H igh School Basketball T ournament has \...) helped in making Peru a popular meeting place for the high school athletes of this part of the state. The committee in charge, the members of the " P" Club who refereed , the T omcats who helped entertain, the visiting teams, and the student hud y arc all to be commended for their splendid spirit of co-operation which makes ;t tournament such as this .t success. N chrasb City, Verdon, and H oney C reek won the C lasses A, B, and C championship cups in this district. Syracuse, T almage, and Shubert were runners-up. These six teams went to the State T ournament the following week. The tournament showed the interest and enthusiasm that is taken in basketball, and that the coaches of the various schools are doing much toward getting their men re;tdy fur college athletics. It is our hope that the high school athletes will continu.: their training as members of the Bobcat squad.

The New Track This spring a contract was let to widen and lengthen the athletic field. and to construct a cind er track around the fo otball field. The track is 400 yards in length and when completed will be the best in the state. with the exception of that at the Nebraska Stadium.

T h ei r q uick , sh ort thro w s and turn passes lost their enemies and resulted in a machine-like regularity of keepin g the ba ll at Peru's goal.

Not o nly was Kelly a good jumper but, she is an a cc urate passer a nd always there i n team w ork . WA NDA SEARS, ru nnin g center, was quick, and covered the noor well , a lways get ting h er signals a nd pla ying a good line game with her fo rwards. ELEANORE H ARAJIAN. righ t forwa rd , was small b ut q uick and an a ccurate sh o t , often roll in g in the baskets fr om almost under th e goal. MAXINE SEARS, left forward , though only a freshma n , ma de her letter th is yea r by h ~ r sincere d eterm ination to play a ha rd, clean game: and sh e w on . "Max" could be depended on to get the ball and pla ce it to advantage. M ARGAR ET VA NCE. left gu ard , was d etermined and ma d e up for her inability to grow ta ll b y the " ol' fi ghting spirit" wh ich she always put into practice.

Freshman.. Sophomore B anque t-19 24 J-c<HE Freshman-Sophomore ba nqu-et of '2 4 w as held in o ne of th e mo st magni · \....) ficent and beautiful settings of any banque t Pe ru ever boasted . The Freshm ~n worked for many months on thei r d ecora tio ns, anJ w hen it was completed , It was a true piece of art-·a glorious G recia n banquet hall-d ig ni ty itself. The hu ge Grecian pillars, and the lovely ligh ting effects, gave the room an ;tppearance o f va st proportions. The color scheme was worked ou t in the class co lo rs- orchid an d a mhc r . T he tables were decorated w ith yellow narcissus, a nd candles of orchid and amber. By each place card was a minute individ ual boquet nf viole ts and tea roses. To com · plete the Grecia n effect, music was furnished by an accomplished harpist, Miss Mane Swanson of Omaha . At 7 :30 on the eve nin g of that biggest eve nt o f the yea r- April 2'i - t h e Fresh · men assembled their guests in the kinderga rten room. From t he re , they marched to the symposium .

EVENTS FALL MIXER The annual mi xer plan ned and carried out by the Christian organizations of th.:: school, was in the nature of an informal ice-breaking fun festival. During the fi rst pa rt of the evening a sho rt program was presented, followed by the presentation of the facu lty to the students. Then the fun hegan with games and contests of all sorts. A t the d ose of the evening everyone was served with dough nuts and coffee. SEN IORS The .. Senior Get Acquainted Picnic" occurred soon after school opened in September. Since it was held out in the open of course all the boys were present, for they were sure of a good time and plenty to eat. A s usual it took an ext ra half hour to gather, but we reached our destination at the time of day when a camp fire is most enjoyed. Here we prepared our delicious coffee and bacon and egg fry. With the growing d usk and in the firelight we enjoyed various games. But going home was a more difficult task, for the boys, instead of going back the same way :ts we had come, led us to a cornfield through which we stumbled and fell for at least a hal f hour before reaching the open road. W e were a ti red yet happy group who reached home feeli ng we had at least made the acquain tance of the members of our class. H OME-COM ING DAY October 2 4 was the date put aside for .. Home-coming" fo r Peruvians, this year. The alumni came hack to Old Peru in goodly numbers, and old friends and new had a glorious good time together. There was a special program in convocation in honor to the alumn i present, and in anticipation of the coming game. The Homecoming game was played with Doane, and no victory for Peru was ever more loudly cheered . The success of the team put everyone in fine spirits for the evening's program, w hich was much enjoyed by the present students and the old. The Dramatic C lub presented their first two plays of the season in the Aud i路 torium, and invited e veryone to come and enjoy themselves. And they did! The first play was "Joint Owners in Spain," a comedy which took the house by storm ; the second ..The Romancers"; and the third "Moonshine." After the plays all went to Mt. V ernon Hall, and g reatl y enjoyed the reception there. THE JUNOR PICNIC About 5::\0 on an early November evening the class of '26 appeared noisesomely, at the scene of picnic, on the old pageant grounds east of the athl'<!tic field, and after depositing of bundles and other parapherna lia peculiar to picnickers, proceeded to the P11ge 151


surrounding woods to gather fagots fo r the camp fi re . '"No work, no cats," the edict of Sponsor Holch, was respected to the letter, and soon we haJ fuel pih:J h ig h about the fi re, where Rebecca Graham and her assistants were preparing the rcpa!'t for 11ur consumption. V ery soon all was in readiness, and we, tired from ou r games and wood ·carryin ~ . attended to th is next d uty with a will. Hot Jogs began to snap and si::lc in plai ntive tones as they were impaled on forked sticks and suhje~·t eJ to the flame. R elaxatio n, and entire dismissal of forma lity, comhinec.l wi th a friendly, geh tCljuaintcJ mooJ, rendered the party an orgy of feasting alternated at in tervals hy funny sto r ies, jcst:i, and good- natu red quihhling at which Bill Dallam, Mr. H o kh, ZaJa Atk ins anJ R ebecca Graham took no hack seat. Dne to the unfortuna te circumstances which kept a number of Juniors away, we \vere somewhat c.lclayeJ in ·'stowing away" a ll the food prepared by the cooks. However, this c.lifficu lty was sot ln sol ved w hcn we resorted to games and activity which in the end enahh:J us to d ispatch w ith the last remnants of that delightful tho ugh mammoth meal. Other duties of campus life call ing, we left the picnic grounds ea r ly , wh ile the woods still echoed with the sound of J un Jun Ra Ra, renc.ler.::J hy some twe nty lusty voices, in whose mi nds were three attenc.ling though ts: " Full we are" '·Friends we are" "And may this happy event he repeated , materi;dl y and also 111 the spir it of our further class association."

"P" CLUI3 ORPHEUM The an nual College Orpheum was staged very successfu lly Friday evening, Decem· her 12. After some lantern slides of Peru's first team of Bobcats, and the tea m (lf '2 4, and then a moving picture of the political troubles in Frogland, the prog ram began with a number of songs of yesterday and today inte rpreted by a group of col· lege men. M able Ewers then sang " In the Garden of Tomorrow," a nd the song w :ts greatly appreciated. The Crocker·Jones Company followed w ith a very clever and amusing little comedy - the best of the season. T he Peruvadors then proved their ability as a ja;:z o rchestra, and were followed hy a clever little act, " Reading the Funny Paper." Coatney and D elzell in "Takeoffs" kept their audience in an up roa r through th eir entire peppy, zippy part of the evening's entertainment . T he last act was the "Barrels" all r ight! Each chorus girl wore a harrel, lettc rcJ "Vanities 192 5." The Blue:tte polka was very prettily danced by Ra-e C rocker. The next was a scene of an Oriental goddess and the graceful daug hters of t he Nile. ·'Playfulness," an adorable little dance, was given hy Goldie T hor pe and Margaret Parker. The skaters, M ahle Ewers and Mario n O verholt, in their snow y white costumes, gave a pl-easing dance, also. The last number, '"Stepping the Steps," danced hy Mary Sue M oore and Dick Ehersole, was much praiseJ fo r its ease and grace. Fo r the "grand fina le ," they wer~


joincJ hy a group of gay chorus girls and together they sa ng a popular song as th~ cunain cam e dnwn. DRAMATIC C LUB C HRISTMAS PARTY The we-ek before Christmas vacati(ln, the Dra matic Club, after one of their sue路 ccssfu l plays, asscmhlcJ in the Faculty room for a little C hristmas party. Each mem路 her had hccn instructeJ beforeha nd to bring a prese nt to the person whose name he haJ Jra wn. So they wer..: met at tho.: door and their gifts were taken and piled und..:r the t r..:-..:. When the ta rdiest couple haJ finall y arriveJ (guess who !) Santa Clau~. alias C harles MaJd..: n, called o ff the names and pr..:sented the gifts. Each person, as h e r..:ceiv..:J his present, had to unwrap it, anJ display it to the rest of the crowd. H ilarious pleasure overwhdmcJ each as h..: received his gift, and wi ld blowing of horns and heating o f toy drums ensued . Wh en the kiJdics began to tire of their toys, and to get restless, someone sug路 gcsted f ..:-..:ding th..:m to quiet them dow n. So splendid sandwiches and coffee, Ch rist路 mas cakes, and brick icc cream with red hells through it, were served . \Vhen they were sat isfied in th is respect, the good times started in again. Every old-fashioned ga me you eve r played, induding "Pig in the Parlor," was enjoyed, tm~il tho.: late hour fina ll y broke up t h-..: pa rty. The room was very att ractively decorated with "snow," C hristmas w rcath.~s. candles, ev..:rgrec n, hol ly , and even a spray of mistletoe ! A sk Miss T aylor how man>' t :m es she got caught under that inoffe nsive little sprig of white berries a nd green leaves. She and the other ladies present will doubtless have a somewhat difficult time counting the number 11f kisses t hey rc..:eived that night !

G IRLS' C LUB PLAY The '2 'i Girls' Cluh play was somethi ng unusual for Peru-a Japanese plav, " Princess Kiku." The stage was beauti ful in its O riental setting, with Japa nese lanterns, pa rasols, summer houses, chrysan themums, cherry t rees, and other summery things o f O ld Japan. The little maidens who took the parts in the play did exceptionally well, for Ja panese plays are very diffi cult to inte rpret. The dances also added much hea utr and loveliness to t he general ctfect. The cast was as follows: Princess Kiku ....... .............. ...................................................

.I THE EVERETT REV U E Someth ing novel was g iven th is year by the Everetts tn the form nf a R evie w.

It is the custom of the society to give a n annual program for the puhli..:, a n d this year's was a great succc::ss. T he performance was given on the eveni ng of D ece mber "i, in the Auditorium. It began w ith a musical number , ··Romany Days," whi..:h had for its so..: tt ing a nx 1m in Mt. V ernon Hall . Eight girls were seated ahout the room singing love songs ~ u the accompaniment of their ukeleles. This ended suJde nly w hen so meom: h.:;trd Mrs. Dunning coming. The pretty act ended w ith a n e ncore in whi..:h t he g irls, Jressed in colorful kimonas, carrying lighted canJ les, sang ··cnod Night Ladies:· The second featu re was ''Lima Bea ns," a one·act nonsense play, in whid 1 Jere Mickel played the part of "he," Faye Emrick t he JXtrt of " she." The play ..:entered about the fact that in the two weeks " he" an d " she" had been ma rried , lima beans had been their chief fare. When " she" fa ils to h;tve lima bea ns for dinn e r o ne Ja y "he" flies into a rage and a comical and cleve r quarrel ensues. The third number, a dance hy Jean a nd Jea net te, a nd o ne hy the Sunflower G irls was as great a success as were t he othe rs. They we re so appre..:iated by the a udience that they had to give another short dance. The last feature, a featu re indeed , was Bill Dallam 's fa mous minstrel show. Bill had his octet te of minstrel ists sitting on the back fence sing ing negro so ngs of every kind and description. N ever were " n iggah chillen" quite so amusing before. Th..:y used their legs to good advantage too, in kee ping time to their sing ing . The fine success of the Everet t program was largely made such by the Jirec tor, M a rie Grabill. PIANO RE C ITA L Early in the spring, Marion Marsh, student with M iss R oyse, ga ve a very interest· ing and pleasing recital. Among the n umbers which stood out espe..: iall y were a Beethoven sonata played with extraordinary ease a nd appreciation, the Liszt Li·zhe· straume, wh ich concl uded t he prog ram, and two Etudes hy an Ame rica n ..:ompose r, Arthur Foote. The numbers were cosmopolitan and very well balanced . Miss Marsh is to be congratul ated for a recital wh ich showed excelle nt musicia nship. THE CO FFER-M ILLER P LA YERS Peru vians were treated to a surprise a nd a treat in the presentation hy t h e Coffe r· Miller Players of Richard Brinsley Sheridan's classic comed y, " The Rivals. " T h e ap· pearance of the players was a rranged for and presented under the sponsorshi p of t he Dramatic C lub. Although the players we re known in Peru only t h rough rep u tat ion , that reputation was seen to he well -earned in t heir appearance here. Of course, to :til w ho know the play, Sir Anthony Absolute, Bob Acres and Mrs. Malap rop stand out invariably, and these characte rs as played hy Mr. Coffer and Miss Mille r indeeJ reached heights of comic perfection. The costum es wer.:: lovely, a nu the sce ne ry was in the mode rn man ner, simple and yet effective. The proJuction w as a p ractical lesso n to those interested in plav prod uction, as well as a h ilarious eve ning to everyonz i·1 the a ud ie nce. Pnae 154


COMEDY O F ERRORS The annua l Dramatic C lub play, Shakespeare's "Comedy of Errors," was pre:路 scnted Thursday evening, April 9, and it added a store of goods to the reputation nf P.:ru 's Li t tle Thcatre. Probably no play had previously been produced in Peru by the stuJcnts which was such a grand success. Every character from Aegean to th e Dromios was up to th e profcssional standard. If laughter makes one healthy, Peruv ians should have had a gondly supply of health for some time after April 9. The cast was as follows: A egean ..................... ...... ................................... ..........

Fern Ware PHILOMATHEAN ROAD SH OW Probably the most successful enterprise unde rtaken by the Philomathean Societ y during the y ear was that of the Road Show aiven April 17, in the College Auditorium. ''The Music Shop," with Victor Bracke"' as proprietor, was well received. _H e, in ~om pany with Miss Ko hansky and the M essrs. Lindahl and Dahlstrom, furn1shed a t-ew uf the latest syncopated numbers. Cecil Coatney and William Warman, N eg ro porters, were the two comedians o f this act, the latter engaging in a "hilarious Negr;:> jig." " The Lady Loses H er H oop," a short tragedy in three scenes, featured Willow Kissack, Charles Parriott, and Jennings Parriott. The title of th is little playlet was self 路exp lanatory. The third act, with its "provoking predicaments," caused the audie nce much amuse路 me nt. The mo ral of t his act seemcd to be: "never call for a da te over the telephone - you may get more than you bargain for." The " T oone rville Trolley" proved to be the "frea k attraction" of the evening. The Skippe r- no other than Mary D elz.ell - has a right to feel proud of his " locomo路 tionless" ve hicle. It is the onl y four-wheeled invention on the market whose moti ve power is e ntirely d erived from the shrill sound of a referee's whistle. The final act was g iven to seve ral vocal duets by Miss Kelley and Miss Kohansky, and a balle t dance by Mary Sue M oore. All were received very enthusiastically. In between acts, the audience was entertained with several tenor solos by John Hansen . His "Swede fro m Minniesoti" created a grea t hit with the crowd. The piano selections give n by Hazel Warman were exceptionally well rendered a nd e ncores by the audien ce showed their appreciation of them. The success of the road show is due greatly to t he capable a nd untiring efforts of D o rothy Fletche r a nd Professor A lbright. Page l &G


MT. VERNON BANQUET FOR BASKETBA LL BOYS Shortl y after the boys won the state ~ hampio n ship in basketball the Mt. Vernon H all girls decided to give them a banquet. l3y 6: ~0 on th e eve ning of the grea_t occasion, the guests, who were the basketball hoys, Coach Graf, P rofessor l3cck, Prest· den t Pate, Colonel Majo rs, and Dean Del:ell, had al l assembled aml th e doors to the dining hall were opened. The Dormitory piano furnished the music as the guest:; and hostesses found their places. Mr. C ilhert and his ex~e llent force then serwd a wonderful two-course meal, whi~h was enjoyably su ppl..:rncntcd by llld song· led by Mrs. Dunning. When the repast was over, members of Mt. Vernon Ha ll gave vcry realist ic im it:t· tions of the various hoys un the team . After some more singing, the eve ning":; toasts were gtven. Miss Scheuer was toastmistress, and introduced th e fo llowin•• toasts: " P. ""Prosperity," by Prof. E. C . Beck E. "Enthusiasm," Mark Del zell R. "·Reputation," Beatrice Nesbitt U. "Unity," Coach G raf "PERU," Colonel T. J. Majors. The banquet ended as it had begun and as it had hcen carril'd nut through tht.> entire evening, with '·pep." STUDENT S' RECITAL BY P IANO DE PARTMENT O n May 2 the students of M iss Royse's piano class gave their a nnual concert. The work of each and every member not only showed marked improvement since last year, hut also gave proof of the musical ability of ea~h student. Miss Royse is tn be greatly commended fo r the work she has done in the department. The two-piano numbers which she so successfully worked with, were unusually well accepted. The solos in themselves wue proof of hoth teacher's and pupils' ability. Judgin g f rom this recital, the piano department is as worthy of praise as any de partme nt on t he campus.

AVERY S T EVENS


C LEAN -UP DAY Clean -up Ja y this year proved to he more of a da y for beautifying the campus than for cleaning it up. The ,,·ork of the various classes last year was so lasting that there was little cleaning fo r th e students of "}). Perhaps we enjoy beautifying more than we do ..:leaning, anyway! A s last year, the Freshmen \\'ere assig11ed to the athletic slope, and the Sophomores to the campus proper. The juninrs and Seniors, however, were this time merely given flo w ers and shruhhery to plant ahout the ..:ampus. T he T raining School worked on their own campus and the D orm lawn. The poor Sophomnres had all the dandelions to dig, and many an aching back and leg resulted. Of cou rse, the next morning there wasn"t a single dandelion on the w hole campus. All that work for nothing ! And spe;tking of \\'ork for nothing, every single plant the juniors and Seniors pla nted , is thriving wonderfull y ! W ell , no joking:. the ..:am pus was mud1 pretti-er at g raduation time, for the hal f· Jay's work we spent on it. And in years to come t he laha r w ill show up more tha n cve r . At 'i :00 o"dock cverynne was read y to cat, and the mea l wh ich Miss Ebersole and her as istants had cooked on the hig stove was a feast indeed. N o wonder, for it was th e first time we had used t he splendid hig stove built for us down on the athletic :;h1pe. Ckan · up <.l;ty w ill undo ubted ly soon he..:ome campus day, and will be one more uf O ld Peru's hund reds of traditions, of which we ar-c sn proud. SOPHOMORE SNEA K DAY When Tuesday morning, M ay 'i, dawned bright and clear an caged-eyed crowJ 11f Sophs infe:;ted the tr;tin , a truck, and numerous cars, and sped towa rds Nebraska C ity, lea ving the work -worn Freshies far, far behind. Upon arrival ev-eryone drove around the cit y a few times to advise the inhabitants of the presence of so notable ;t ~.· la ss. At 10:30 the crowd asscmhlcJ at the State School for the Blind, where they were entert;tine<.l hy the students. It was here that casualty number one occu rred. A duir was used as medi um between the truck and the sidew;tlk, but when Amy Snowden st-epped thereon, alas! It could not stand the shock! From there, the hu ngry Sophs hied themselves to the Olympic Candy Kitchen whe re a most s;ttisfying dinn er was served especially for these illustrious guests. D ick Ebersole had been wail ing for food from the start, and the amount of food he pu t awa y Ji<.l justice to the hours he had waited. A movie w;ts next in order, and Blanche Sweet reigneJ sup reme in " His Su preme M o ment." There seemed tn he half a do:en of the afores;tid moments, and authorities Jitfere<.l ;ts to which was "the" mo ment. After the movie some of the stouter hearte<.l visited the Wilson Packing House, hut gorey tales of the sight to he seen changed the minds of not a few. A t this ju ncture casualty numher two occurred : Otto Pabian disappear::d and fo r two hours diJ not turn up. H is friends were afraid that he had become lost beyond recoverv in the packing plant, but he serenely 1->obbcd up again some time later, accusing his pa rty of having abandoneJ him. N e;trly everyone w-ent through Arbor Lodge and Morton·s Park. The girls nf M uu nt V erno n decided that it might be advisable to move the Lodge to Peru to be P a ge 157


.I utilized as a dorm. At 4 :00 o'clock cveryhody gathered at Brow n's Park , w here the Sophs lost their dignity fo r two hours, when a heart y picn ic lunch wa s ser ved . No one was able to com plain because of an insuflicicncy : rather th e re were groans to the contrary. John Hansen almost furnished another casualty, for, ;ts he crossed a creek at the rear of the mess cabin, he harcly esc;tped a tlo using. From that time on the evening wore o n rapid ly, an ti t he Sophs reve letl in thei r freedom from campus can~<>. Some even forgot themselves so co m p letely that Ill th e ir frivority they went back to the city to ano ther movie. As early as 10:00 o'clock most of the Sophs were sa fel)' home aga in , very muc h worn out by their unaccustomed gaiety and hoarse from singing o n the ho nl e\varJ ride. But was the day a success!? Well! N ow all toge ther, Sophs ! Ye;t ho ! Yea bn! Yea bo! SOPHO MO RE C LASS PLAY " TH E IN TIMATE STRAN GERS" " T he Intimate Stranger~" is one of Tarkington's more: rece nt productions and has been acclaimed by critics as one of his best works. The central figures in the plot arc people who IM vc reached the yea rs o f d iscr~路 tion and reall y should know better. But they ap parently don't a nti fal l dee ply 111 love, without regard for age, conditions or circumstances, mostl y the last named .. It is then that the lady in the case becomes perverse, a nti tries to conv ince her S~l to r that she is a veritable eenturian. He hesitates to hc:licvc the evidence o ffered , csp;::c lall y as the lady of his heart does not bear out the talc as far as appea ran ce is conccn:cd . T hen the fun begins. Of course there is a flapper in the foregrou nd who keeps thmgs lively; and a few settled, staid people to be pro perly shocketl when the occasio n anse;:;, which it does, more than once.

THE PERU CAM PU S Th e P eru cam pus overlooking the M issouri River is the most dist inctive campus in Nebraska. Comprisin g over sixty acres of oak-covered hills and valleys, it is the natural home of song birds and w il d flowers. In autumn it is a glor y of colors: in spring it is a dream of song and verdure. Th e athlet ic fi eld was carved out of the hills. With its natural amphith eater it is one of the must picturesq ue bowls among all the coll eges. Few colleges can boast as noble God-given ~e tt ing as "Old Peru."

In Gratitude

X

T is with a feeling of mingled rejoicing and regret that we bring this volum路!, together with twelve months of planning and toiling, to a close. For, although our work has been a pleasure and an inspiration, it has meant sacrifice, not o nl y to us, but to the student body. Truly, the publication of the College Annml !'~presents possibly the biggest undertaking among all the student activities. Yet, whu will say that the reward is not worth the effort路~ So we take this opportunity of extending our thanks and our kindest person t! regards to all who have given us their support in the task of assembling and publishing this volume. W e wish especially to express our gratitude to the following: M r. L. A . Hines, of the Art.:raft Engraving Company, for the personal interest which he has shown in m;tking this a better P er11vian; Prof. E. C. Beck, for his many helpf11l suggestio ns: Mr. Peterson, for his exquisite photographic work: and Jacob N orth and Company for their valuable services in printing. These, and others whom lack of space w ill no t permit us to mention, have made our burden a little ligh ter and our undertaking more successful. Fo r nur reality, it is ward in the mo re as the

fello w-students "vhosc hearty support has helped to make this book 1 our sincere hope that th>::y will find, even as we will find, an ample resatisfaction which it affords. This reward will be augmented more aml hand of Kismet leads us nearer and nearer to our fa te. For, "When we are old and worn with years, we'll read This record of our youth, the day, the place; And we will suit our memory to our need, And long- forgott~n name to faded face. Sadness will come to us who fail to trace The Jrcams we dreamed so certain to succeed; Times later generation will erase The dreamer and the doer and the deed. Then let us sec these tranqui l hills agai n; Fruit-laden trees, the lighted homeward street; Let us not seck our former years in vain ; Let us find youth unspoiled and living sweetFor us, once more, the splendor and the pain Thinking the old earth trembles at our feet."
