T he g raduating clas~,s o f 1927 constitute the largest group that ever gra duated fr om Peru. This is an enviable distinction, one in which you as graduates, no d oubt, take g reat pride. This distinction, however, p laces a greater responsibility upon you rhan upon any preceeding class, for f rom a large class, in the aggregate, large retu rns are expected. And what are the returns expected of you? Nothing less than the earnest effort 路w make o f you rselves the best teach ers possible, that the boys and girls wh ::> will be pla ced ;n rou r charge, in the years to come, will be inspired to become useful members of society. A s: mple purpose, yes, but the p u rpose which produced such men a s Socrates, Aristotl e, Pesta lozzi, Horace Mann, and Woodrow W ilson ; for the s:mplest thi ngs of li fe- friends hip, love, character, are, after <J II , the greatest. Bur to be a grea t teacher you must be wi ll ing to g ive freel y of your time, you r talents, vou r love, you~self.

If vou d:> this, you r success will he immeasurabl y great and you r life

rre-emincntly worth while.

I cove t for you such a life.

STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION The Peru Srare Teachers College is a consrirutional inscirucion, having been made so when the new constitution for Nebraska was adopted in 1920. It is under the control of the Scare Board of Education. The members of chis board, with rhe exception of the Scare Superintendent of Public I nstruction, who is a member ex-officio, are appointed by che Gove:nor, subject ro confirmation by the Senate. The Board at present consists of rhe following: H onorable T. ]. Majors, Peru, President, Term expires 1933. H onorable Dan Morris, Kearney, Vice-President, Term expires 1933. H onorable H. E. Reische, Chadron, Secretary, Term expires 1931 . Honorable F. S. Berry, Wayne, Term expires 193 1. H onorable E. Ruth Pyrtle, Lincoln, Term expires 1929. Honorable Dan V. Stephens, Fremont, T erm expires 1929. Honorable Charles W. Taylor, Scare Superintendent, Lincol n, Ex-officio. A governor of Nebraska once said that Thomas Jefferson Majors was the G eorge Washington of Peru. Truly he has been the fa ther of our g rand old institu tion of learning.

Every building on the campus stands as


contribution of his efforts in behalf of the school he has

loved so long and so well. Born in Iowa over four score years ago, where he spent his early childhood, he came to Peru in early youth where he lived with his parents until the call came from Lincoln for volunteers. At the age of eighteen young Majors answered tha t call. H e served this country throughout the C ivil Wa r and at the close of the struggle CoL. THOMAS JEFFERSON he was sent ro western Nebraska, Colo rado, and Wyom ing ro rake charge of a division of soldiers to put down rhe Indian uprising. In 1866 he returned ro civil life and as a reward fo r rhe services to his country he was chosen ro represent his home county in rhe first Stare Legislature of Nebraska. In '(his legislature he was a potent factor and leader. Ir was rhis legislature which chose .:he location for rhe State Capital, the State University, and rhe first Scare Teachers' Training School of N ebraska. Through his leadership Peru was seriously considered for 路.:he location of the State University until a compromise measure was offered by making 路.:he Scare N ormal at Peru and che Scare University at Lincoln. For several years the school at Peru was rhe larger school. In honor for his services he is regu larly chosen President of rhe Scare Board of Education and each time when his term on che board expires he is reappointed-he rh e governor Republ:can or be he Democrat-a reward merit for the faithful servi~~,:S he ha~ rendered rhc Scare.

PERU'S PROGRESS With this issue of the Peruvian, commemorating the sixtieth anniversary of the establishment of Peru State Teachers College, it is fitting that a resume o f some of th e incid ents of these sixty years be recounted.



It was in 1865 that the first seep towards making Peru an educational cente r was ::~d足 vanced, when the citizens of chis prairie community mer to f ormulate plans for rhe con~rruction of a school building. Dr. J ohn Neal, Major \'V'il liam Daily, Rev. Bu rch and Mrs. J. M. J.\llcKenzie were instrumental in purchasing the land for the site of the new building. That site is now occupied by Me. Vernon Hall. With the willingness of parri ors, rhe citizens of rhe comm u n ity gave libe rall y to the cause of rhe new sch:Jol. Brick was obtained from the local brick ya rd. Rock, labor, cottonwood lumber, land, and oth er building material was freely dona ted and soon a crude but respectable structure was opened for occupancy. Dr. J. M. M cKenzie, prominen t in ed ucational endeavors, had been persuaded to sever his connection with a private school at Pawnee City and take charge of the newly constructed school a t Peru. H e and his wife constituted rhe faculry. At this time the territorial legisla ture began considering si res for rhe location and construction of state schools. Through rhe efforts of Col. T. J. Majors and M ajor \'V' ill iam Daily, who were members of rhe legislature, rhe state in 1867 accepted the offer of Pe ru 's school to become rhe Nebraska Stare Normal, as ir wa s found impossible ro locate rhe state university here. With an appropriation of $3,000 the bu ilding was improved. In 1868 the Philomathean Litera ry Societ y was o rganized. The original charter hangs in the Faculty Room of rhe present Adm inistration building. Dr. McKenzie re linquished the presidency of the school in 187 1 and the p residents who succeeded him are sh ow n on page 31 of this Peruvian.

CLASS OF 1 927 The members of che Class of 1927 look back upon thei r past fo ur ye'\rs with ming led pride and joy. H ow much like a cycle of history has been the d evelopment of chis class! . As freshmen, wich vase numbers, they faced che p robl em of organiza tion, were ushered tnt~ the mysteries of college life, each one seeki ng co fi nd chat course from which he would denve the most benefic. Then as sophomores, though slighdy reduced in numbers, chey were among the peppiest on the campus. They recall che diligence with which chey dug dandelions and cleaned u p rhe campus; che pride chey felc in che class play, "The I ntimate Strangers"; t he void they caused by their silent d isappearance on May 5th; a nd the crowning event-the FreshmanSophomore banquet. Then came the critical r:me of deciding wh ether they should reap the benefits of the past two yea rs or gain more by remaining. Wich much regret, most of the comrades went forth into cheir profession co teach others chat they, roo, might attain the fruits of real wisdom, bur chose sophomores have been loyal co Peru and have sent back many ro replenish the ranks. As juniors, still fewe r in number. they found plenty of room at the top a nd how glorious was the sensation of realizing that rhey could grow in whatever fiel d they had chosen, o:o unlimited bounds. And now as seniors, we have had gained in numbers and have became the largest dass rhus far co receive degrees from chis college. Who knows so well as che seniors the treasures scored in che library? Who has d elved more whole-heartedly into athletics, music, and arc and fo und more pleasure than the se niors? And now we venture forth co prove che worth of Peru State T eachers College.

THE HIGH SCHOOL How much more fun the Senior High School! assembly room has proved at first somewhat skeptica l

it is to be a senior in the Junior High S chool than a freshman in Having g rades seven, eight, and nine as one unit in their own very p opula r, especially with the ninth grade sru d ents, who were about rhis plan.

There has been an unusua lly fine spirit in both the ] unior and Senior High Schools the past year. Special emphasis has been given to the real objectives of secondary education, namely: hea lth, vocation, worthy use of leisu re, ethica l cha racter, good citizenship, worthy home membership, and command of the fundamental processes. Much has been accomplished toward attain ing these idea ls through our student cou ncils, physical t rai ning program, class organizations, clubs, and other forms of extra-curricular activities as well as through t he regular subjects. Ove r one hundred college students have g ained t heir fi rs t reaching experience in our high school th is year. T he wholesome attitude of h igh school students towards the student teacher is very commendable. T he co-operative attitude of the students in keeping th e buildm g and class rooms clean and attractive is appreciated by those in authority. Mr. Spachr, Principal of the D emonstration H igh School, has accepted the su pe rintendency at Bellevue, Nebraska for next year. We shall miss him greatly. He has been la rgely responsible for the many improvements made in the Senior H ig h School duri ng the past three years. Our sincere good wishes go with h im fo r even greater success at Bellevue.

THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1927 For three long years we , the class of '27, have labored with a problem, the prol->lem of filling each little storehouse with knowledge. Now in our fourth and last year, we find ourselves victorious over many lesser difliculcies, which in the past seemed overwhelming. Let us dwell a while on the past years. In September, 1923, we were enrolled as F reshmen in the Peru Demonstration High School. As tradition wou ld have had it, we were the usua l green bunch . But, as one can learn from historic examples, tradition has oft entimes been broken down. And it rook rhe Freshies of S eptember '23 to destroy that formerly established fact. As proof of ch:s assertion let us point out the wisdom we already possessed, when we chose for our adviser Mr. C. A. Huck, of che high school mathematics department. That year we had two representatives in football, and one in basketball, John J uhl and Carl Adams, the latter of whom won a lette r in both sports. Such was our pompous beginnmg. When we started our expdeition as S ophomores the outside world sat u p and took notice. For we now had three lettermen in footba ll: Carl Adams, H a rry Brunsdon, and John Juhl; and one letterman in basketball . A sta rtling record indeed, fo r mere Sophs! Then 1n all the main events of che school we actively participated. So ended the successful year

of Sophomorehood. Now as Juniors, let us first mention that our number was increased by several new ~tudems, all of whom proved a great asset to our class. In basketball were Harvey Sopher and Bob Briggs, and in football, Clifford Sulrzbaugh, John Gregory, Floyd Cole, and Raymond Jones. We sent a fi ne delegation to the Studen t Council, and produ ced an interesting show for Hig h School Night. Our Junior year could nor have been more perfect, for Harvey Sopher was elected basketball captain and John Juhl che football captain. Then in considering rhe class as Seniors let us first announce chat we were the smallest class in High School-very true-but Oh! how mighty. In certain events did you hear of Peru Demonstration High School? No. You listened to the marvelous tales of deeds perfo rmed by the Seniors of Peru Demonstration Hig h School. Let us begin by listing the lettermen that represent our Class in football: Captain Juhl and Carl Adams, che first and only four-year letter men in the history of the school. Then Paul Robirds, Har ry Bruns路 d on, Floyd Cole, Jim Bogle, H arvey S opher, and Marion Milnes. In basketball we had Harry Sopher as captain, then Bob Briggs, Jim Bogle, and Carl Adams as four-year men. On the Student Council we had elected the first semester, Lucy Majors, Virginia Milstead, Bob Briggs, Harvey Sopher and J oh n Juhl. The second semester Doris Duerfeldr, Lucy Majors, Robert Briggs, J ohn Juhl , Genevieve Fisher and Harvey Sopher were elected. With Clayton Swartz, captain of the debate team, there were also Genevieve Fisher and Florine Elliott. High School Night we staged a very successful program, the Moon Light Scrcnaders. Then the annual play that we gave proved a great hit. The Juniors en tertained by a picnic trip, and they su rely entertained us well. Then the S enior skip路day trip was one full of many happy incidents char wi ll long be remembered. At the last part of the term our beloved May Queen was crowned. Then came gradua路 cion exercises ;~nd the end of a perfect yea r. lr is with ioy mingled with sadness char we shall always look back upon chose happy years spent at P. D. H. S.

CLASS OF 1929 "Not on the top bur climbing," is just the way the Sophomores feel. H aving this attitude in mind, we, the members of the class of '29, hope that we may establish by our thorough training here, a firm foundation, not only for our remaining yea rs in sc hool, but even throug h our entire life work, so that it will enable us to obtain the highest goa l poss ible. We are almost half way . In spite of the many difficulties we meet we are advancing rapid ly toward our goa l, Success. T o aid us in our work we elected the following class officers: President, Winifred Pettit Vic e Prt?sidenl, Virgil Abel Secretary, Byron Gordon T reamrer, Paul Landolt We are indeed grateful to Miss Kenton, who has sponsored our class through one of our hardest years. We were represented in the Student Council by the following: Irwin W illiams Merle Swartz Earl Applegate The spirit of our class was brought out on H allowe'en night, when we held a masquerade party in the little gym. Nearly every Sophomore turned out and the parry was a decided success. Some of the latent talent of the Sophomores was revealed when they staged a very teresting chapel program.


By applying ourselves studiously we hope to establish a xecord equa l to that of those who have gone before us.

1926 PERU PREP FOOTBALL Issuance of the first call brought out twenty-six men. In this group were seven letter men: Captain Juhl, Adams, Brunsdon, Bogle, Cole, Milnes, and Railsback. The first game was with Brock at Brock. Peru won easily with a score of 27 to 0 and it was in th:s game that several green men won places on the team. Adams was next encountered on Peru 's field and defeated by the score 38 to 0. T he next week Coach Frary's machine journeyed to Tecumseh and by a desperate rally in the waning minutes of the game won 16 to 10 . The next week came the dark blot of the season. After a hard ride the boys played a listless game, losing to Falls City 27-0. In t he next game with Verdon the team redeemed them~elves with a score of 20-13. The next Wednesday Nebraska City, our old rival, came to Peru and was d efeated 10-0. T he Bobkittens then journeyed to Plattsmouth where they were victorious through a field goal, kicked by Rail sback, making the score 3-0. In the n ext game Peru battled with Pawnee for the southeastern championship on Pawnee''s fi eld. We lost the game 16-6 and with it the hopes for a championship. The final game with our old enemy, A uburn , was played on a muddy field and ended in a scoreless tie. This tie gave Peru 路th ird place in the southeastern conference. Three Peru men were placed on the m ythica l all-southeastern team. On the fire tea m were: Captain ] uhl, left guard, Railsback, right end, and Bogle, fullback; second team, Brunsdon, cemer ; and Adams received honorable mention. There were fourtee n lettermen : Captain Juhl, Captain-elect Polston, Adams, Brunsdon, Bogle, Boe llstorff, Co le, Cowell, Applegate, Milnes, Graves, Railsback, Robirds and Sopher. Much credit is due to Coach Frary, who made the team a success . Although many men wil l be lost through graduation, we expect to have a winning team next year with Polston at the helm .

THROUGH THE YEAR WITH THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL It was at the beginning of the school year of 1926-7 char our Junior High School was re-organized to include the ninth grade. Sixty-six boys and girls enrolled in the three grades - thirty-six in the ninth, fifteen in the eighth and fifteen in the seventh. Each class has had its history, bur a few glimpses will be given here. Most of the importan t happenin!!s and many of the interesting projects have been of interest and concern to the entire school. The united aim of students and teachers throughout the yea r has been to make "school a place to live." As a result of this it has come about that these students have made definite progress toward char preparation for social and civic life of manhood and womanhood. The college students who have chosen to do their reaching in the Junior High School have created whole-hearted enthusiasm and sincere interest on the part of their pupils, :1s well as worthwhile experiences for themselves. To these student reachers much appreciation ts gtven. This department is supervised by Ruth G . Brandt, Devona M. Price, Pearl Kenton,

C. A. Huck, Kathryn M. T owne, A. V. Larson, P. E. Kurnink, Price Doyle, and Y. H. Jindra. Through the entire year, Superintendent Clements has given support and encouragement to all that was attempted. Perhaps the most important all-school affai r ~f the year was the_ annual High School Night given on December 17th. Every boy and gtrl had an opporrumry to help. This was the on ly event of the year at which money was raised. While the field of extra-curricular activities has not developed as it will be, yet there arc several organizations and activities that have been important parts of our school life. Several happy social events will long be remembered. Ncar the beginning of the yea r :1 Jun ior High Mixer was held. That evening was one of fun from the minute the program began until the last extra doughnut and glass of cider disappeared. A very pretty party was given by the student teachers ro the ninth grade on St. Patrick's Day. During April, the seventh and eighth grade reachers planned an Easter parry for their pupils. And through the year, in this or char class, a social hour has been spent. The Student Council holds its meetings once a week. T en boys and girls, regularly elected by the s tudent body, comprise this council. Each social science class has its organization and conducts irs business sessions in commendable parlamentary procedure. The ninth grade Latin duh has given interesting pograms each month. Campfire girls, having chosen Miss Shirley Skaden as their guardian, are enthusiastically carrying on that line of work. Boy Scour work 路s under the leadership of Mr. Clayburn as scour master and Mr. James Delzell as assistant scour master. A number of ambitious boys have formed a pig dub with George Reinmiller sponsoring. The Junior Orchestra is one of the important activities of this year. A rruly fine opportunity has been afforded this year. Through the music department orchestra instruments have been loaned and class instruction given to any who wishes to learn to play. Almost half of the students are making use of this privilege. Tll_!~ugh chis, fine r appreciation and keener enjoyment of the Kansas City Little Symphony Orchestra was made possible. The year has been dotted here and there with thrills typical of real school life. There was the day they were vaccinated, the day the Aa~s arrived, the days they played football and basketball games, the day they heard President Coolidge speak, the day the posture awards were made, the day they had their pictures taken, and the :hys the Junior High Echo was published. The ninth grade as Junior High upper dassmen are leaving a fine record and a goodly amount of school spirit and will take to the Senior High School fine enthusiasm and high ambitions that will mean worthy realizations during rhe next three years. The Junior High will miss them. The Senior High will enjoy them.

CoACH LoN R. GRAF Lon . R. " Little Knute'路 Graf has hec:1 head mentor at Peru since the fa ll ot 1923. Graf was a member of the fres hman foo tball teams of 1914 at Nebraska and tackle a nd g uard in the football team of 19 16 under " Jumbo" S tiehm. H e also starred in track work a t Nebraska and Westminster, and captained the track team of 19 15 at the latter sch ool. After d oin-; h:s bit for Uncle Sam, Gra f returned to his native Tecumse h, where he coached the championship American Legion tea ms of 191 9-20-2 1 and 22. The following fall he took charge of the Bobcats. I n the fo ur years at Peru , Graf has been the chief factor in the winning of th ree basketball tid es and one football champion shi p. M ore than tin t, Peru Ins a lways fi nished the season in either fi rst or secon d place in both sports. But t h ~ greatest stride 111 rhe G ra f regime is the developement of t rack.

CoACH P AUL E. KuTNINK At the opening of school last fa ll t he State Board elected an assistant to Coach Graf. This was Paul E. Kutnink. Coach Kutnink grad ua ted from the Emporia State T eachers College of Emporia, Kansas. While there, he made four lette::s in track, three of which embodied championship stripes, four lette::s in footba ll a nd three in basketball. H e has also taken summer work in physical education under Dr. Maroney, basketball coaching unde r C raig Ruby, and football coaching under "Gloom y Gil "' D obie of Cornell University :H Ithaca, New York. T his year Coach Kutnink has had charge of basketball and has assisted Coach Graf in football a nd t ra ck. His proteges finished the seas:m on th e second rung of the conferen ce ladder, bur next year, with a cou rt f ull of Vt'terans, Coach Kurnink should experience little d ifficu lty in rou nding our rhis g roup into a cha mpionsh ip aggregation.

Captain Wilbert "Dutch" Zorn is a vete ran halfback. H e was playi ng his th ird yea r with the Bobcats and was doped to clo wonders, but the injury jinx kept him from his best form . In 1924 " Dutch" was a big cog in the Graf machine that took the state t itle ; in 1925 he was the unanimous choice for halfback; in 1926 he would have done likewise, butAs an offensive player the Nebraska Con ference has no better. He is fast, alert, :tnd shifty; he ca n throw a pass and snag one. As a defensive player he is a sure tackle, a valuabl e safety man, and a terror at intercepting passes. Captain Zorn will make Captainelect Gariss a threatening ba ll-lugger in 1927.

"Big J oe" Krejci, captain of the 1927 Bobcat cagesters and one of the cleverest basketball players in the state confe:ence, has two more years at Peru. Joe is a d ribbler with no -superiors and but few, if any equals. H e would put u p a bold [ront in any man's offense and is well capable of covering any defensive center's court territory; his uncanny eye, his ability to hit the hoop, has placed him among the leading scorers of the conference. Last year Joe made all-state center on every team chosen. This year, with compermon stiffer and the big Doane center running wild he was placed at forward on some seleccions and at center on others. All in all, "Big Joe" is recognized as one of the cleverest basketeers in Nebraska.

TRACK AT PERU When Coach Graf came to Peru he brought a recipe for making a track and a track team. It took him a year to get action on his track plans. In 1925 he saw the contract let for enlarging the athletic field and constructing a cinder track. A track spirit had to be cultivated; candidates had to be encouraged to work out for track. The first season, however, Peru won a telegraphic meet from Y ork 110 to 30, placed in the 880 yard relay at Kansas and Drake, placed second in a triangular meet at Hastings, lost a dual meet at Tarkio, and finished first among the reachers colleges at the state meet. By 1926 track had established itself. The few veterans and the willing freshmen were made into a more powerful team. Peru won a triangular meet from Midland and Tarkio, lost a dual meet with Hastings, and placed second among the teachers colleges at the state meet. " Little Knute ., sponsored the first M-I-N-K track and field meet held on the college track May 1, 1926; he introduced Peru and r.he Bobcats to the high schools of four sta tes. In 1927 the track meet was held April 30 with more high schools represented. In 1927, assisted by Coach Kutnink and better material, Coach Graf l~as hopes of awarding gold track shoes to h:s letter-men. Zorn, Williams, Davenport and Z ook brought back the 880 yard relay cup from the Hastings relays; and Selk and Fort brought back medals for fi rst and second in the broad jump. The 1927 squad features Davenport, Zook, Zorn, and Sams in the dashes; Williams, Heywood, Dillon, and Young in the distances; Shumard, Selk, Thompson, and Beckord in the hurdles; Hertz, Krejci, Kerner, Rogers, Dallam, McElroy, Selk, and Fort in t he field events.

GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The Girls' Athletic Association was organized in the fall of 1924 by Miss Ruby Damme. During the past two years it has been supervised by Miss Frances Root. T he purpose of the organiz~tion is to enlist the interest of as many college girls ::ts possible in athletics, both indoor and outdoor sports; to give them executive experience in handling the sports and in conducting the meetings; to foster school consciousness and sch:Jol spirit. During the year 1925-1926 many interesting tournaments were held, which included hitpin ball, volleyball, basketball, baseball, and tennis. Track and hiking lured many girls -, 0 parnctpate in our acnvmes. The organization was very proud of the swimming cup ;:hat was won in a dual meet with Maryville, Missouri.

By way of fostering school spirit the G. A. A. in 1926, with the able help of Mr. Huck, took entire charge of concessions at athletic events, the proceeds of which were turned into the swea ter and trophy fund. The new event for the year of 1926, which is to be an annual affair, was the Co-Ed Prom. What is it? Ask any P. S. T. C. girl! During the year 1926-1927 the same sports program wa s followed as for the previous year. There was at least a thirty-five per cent increase in the number o f g irls out for the practices in the various sports. The Co-Ed Prom this year was aGypsy Festival and in spite of the mumps epidemic it proved a huge success. The new event for this year was the sale of Christmas cards which aided greatly in enlarging the funds of our treasury. We路re getting bigger and we hope better every year.

PHIOMATHEAN LITERARY SOCIETY In the 1926-1 927 period the Philomarhean Litera ry S ociety brought itsel f into prommcnce by the hig h qual ity of programs and social entertainment rendered. The Philomarheans owe a good dea l to their honorab le advisers V . E. C ha tela in, first semester, and R. T . Benford, se~ond semester. These two men worked unrireingly with 路.:he g roup during their terms as sponsors. Ralph Higg ins and C leon Rhoad es, presidents for the first and second semesters, respectively, spent much of their va luable time in the interest of the society. The program committee should be recognized especia ily for their part in making the Philomathean society a success. Without a doubt, some of the bes t programs ever recorded were given this year, everyone of which proved the worth of the societ y in educational and entertainment circles.

EVERETT LITERARY SOCIETY A capable and enthusiastic membersh ip, the faith ful leadership of Miss Bu rton, as adviser, and the splendid support of the facultv members have bee:1 the elements which led to the achievements and popularit}' of the Everett Literary Society th is year. The keynote of all activities of the organization In s been loyalty t::> the society and co-operation among its members. Each program has been planned and presented around some major theme. Every member has had an opportunity t::> p:rform, for these programs have bee:1 student presenta tions. Good times have not been neglected. The forma l initiation with its social h::>ur was the first of the enj oyable se:ies. T hen ome the Hall ow::'e:1 masquerade and the Christmas party, which met with equal success. Perhaps that activity of the Everetts which was received with the most pub lic approval was the presentation of "Peg 0 ' My Heart," by J. H. Manners. It was g iven under the directorship of Miss Marion Marsh, and the sponsorship of Miss Best, th~ dramatic ' nstructor. Genevieve N icholas, in the role of Peg, won the hearts of her listeners as we ll as the heart of J erry Ada ir, played by Craig Thomas.

Even Mrs. Chichester (Ada Eyre ) :ll1d

her Alaric (J oe Jones ) and Ethel (Margaret Clineburg) had accepted her whole-heartedly into their home befo~e the play lnd ended. Roland Ed ie , in t he pa rt : > f the treacherous Brent, came in for h:s sln re of her Irish wit, too. As fa r a~ Ha wkes, her lawyer, (Walter Hanson ) , Jarvis, the butler, (Harold Marren ) , and the maid, (Ru th Philhrook) , were concerned. they we re ever Peg's frie nds. This E\路erett production was a marked success.

GIRLS' CLUB During the year of 1926 and 1927 the College Girls' Club has sponsored many things 0 [ inte rest to the school. A recital, given by Miss Lois Hacker, in conjunction with t he G irls' Club, was the firs t event of the year. T he receipts from this entertainmen t were used for the p urpose of enlarging the student loan f und, which is a very interesting feature of the organization. The C lub has given a number of dainty and enjoyable teas. The hostesses have invited rhe faculty and differe nt departments to be their guests. Perhaps the greatest social event of the year was the Annual Costu me party which was held in the high school auditorium February 12. T he girls appeared in an array of dainty, grotesque or characte ristic costumes, and fo llowing the grand march, enjoved progressive hearts, rook and dancing as specia l fea tures of entertainment. A represen tation of this party was g iven in chapel to celebrate the eighth birthday of the club.

At this time the birthday cake was presented and eight cand les were lig h ted

thereon. The purpose of the Girls' Club is to bring the girls into closer re lationship with each other and to help them as a group to work togethe r fo r a common goal. T he dub promotes fr iendshi p and good fe llowship. In fact, it functions for the wei fare of the en tire rollrgr.

EA RLY EL EMENTARY CO UNCI L The Early Elementary Council was established in P eru in the fall of 1926 with a twofold purpose: First, to promote a feeling of unity in the Early Elementa ry d epartment, and Second. to create social activity among its members. The club ha s proved a justification for its own being since it has successfully carried out its motives. During the school year several parties were given, of which the l\ibd M arch Hare party is typicaL Around Christmas rime rhc girls added co rhe general feeli ng of good will by ca rol singing with lighted candles. An Early Elementa ry Circus 1vas given in rhe gymnasi um in April. This oraganization has helped create a professional fe eling and attitude a m ong the g irls who a re specializing in kindergarten and primary g rades. Under rhe d irection of M yrr!r Sorenson, the president, the club has fu nctioned effectively and has proved its value as :1 campus organization.

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CL lJB This organization has been a viral factor in rhc religious life of the college since it~ organization in 1914. For many years meetings were held in private homes. Since September, 1923, the group has met in the piano studio of t~e Auditorium Building. Inasmuch as there is no Christian Science church in Peru, the purpose of the club is to provide a church home for those who wish to grow in the understanding of Christian Science, and to welcome all others who may wish to attend rhe religious services. Students, faculty a nd townspeople arc numbered in the group which meets : egularly e~ch Sunday at eleven o'clock. The order of services is rhar found in the ma nual of the Ftrst Church of C hrist, Scientist of Boston, Massachusetts. There have been occasional trips to attend :;ervices it~ churches of ne.i ghboring towns and each autumn the group a ttends t~e <t~mual C:hristtan SCience lecrure delivered under the .wspices of First Church of Christ Sctenttst, Nebraska City.
