New Peru College Song 1 Written by Steck 1~~ .

A desire to give Peru a song to stand beside the color song, led Professor G. Holt Steck to write the following song: PERU LOYALTY We sing a song for old Peru, We sing a song for Blue and White We sing a song with hearts so true. We sing a song that echoes thru the night. On the campus when the day is done We'll be singing for the victory won, For the college varsity, For the Boys in Blue. Rah! Rah! Rah! Fight, fight. fight, fight; go, go, go, go That's what we do. Sing, sing, sing, sing; yell, yell, yell yellFor old Peru. Rah! Rah! We sing a song for old Peru, We sing a song for White and Blue, We sing a song for friendships true, Among the hills of old Peru. -G. H. Steck.

HOME COMING PLAY CAST CHOSEN "Through the Keyhole," a comedy in three acts, will be presented as the Homecoming play this fall, under the general direction of Professor Moore. A sophisticated, subtle type of humor prevails in this comedY, with plenty of laughs for all. The play is well balanced giving each actoi· or actress an equr>,1. chsnce to prove his or her ability. Mary Kathryn Hanlon is the assistant director. The stage and lighting effects will be in charge of Charles Parnell. The cast, chosen through try-outs, is as follows: Genev1eve · Van Camp .

TO OPEN PROGRAM Once again grads of Peru can hear the bell that has called Peruvians to classes for 70 years. For the bell is being used to open Peru's weekly broadcast over KMA. The history of the bell is one of tradition and service. The first bell used on the campus cost $3.00 and cracked during the winter. So the students of Peru had a chicken supper to raise money for a new bell. The girls cooked-and the boys picked and i'led. After the feathers had settled they found they had made $6. However, subscriptions raised the fund to $125 · and the bell was bought from Meneely and Company of Troy, New York, in 1867. Today, in 1937, that same bell peals forth at stated interals. The bell that nnounced your fathers'. your classes 8.nd will be announcing for your posterity is now on the air. So now, at the sound of the bell-it will be 8:30 p. m. every Tuesday night.

Friday, October 1, will be the first home game for Peru. The game, which will be called at 8: 00, is with Doane College of Crete, Nebraska. Doane started its season with a smashing 52-0 victory over Regis. While Peru was battling Maryville Bearcats to a 6-6 tie on the same week end. On the basis of these scores, the sports writers have ventured a prediction of another 0-0 tie for Friday night's game. The score last year was 0-0. However, Pedagogian sportsters predict a one touchdown victory for Peru, with the score being 13-7. Friday is your first chance to live up to this year's slogan-"Come and See the Bobcats Battle".

Chorus i\,uditions The new system of no formal auditions has brought ninety-three students into the chorus. From this number those not caring to go on will eliminate themselves merely by dropping out. This plan is similar to the one used in athletics. All are given an opportunity and the chorus will be chosen from those wishing to continue: The new procedure was adopted so that there would be fewer possibilities of losing valuable material because of faulty auditions.

TEACHER ELECTED Mrs. Albert, who did her graduate work at the University of Nebraska, has been selected to teach English 100 this year. The practice of hiring a graduate is a new policy at Peru. The reason for the change from student to graduate is that the English department feels that English 100 students need special instruction. A student teacher, it is ~lieved, does not have the time necessary for the special instruction.

An idea is born-"Freshman Singers" might profitably be organized from the new freshman vocal prospects as a preparatory step to joining the varsity ''Peru Singers." This idea is being considered in hope that it will aetract more freshman male talent to the singing group. Band and Orchestra Prospects Good Encouraging-that's the word for the outlook of this year's band and orchestra work. New material includes: Mildred Knoflicek of Plattsmouth, who llas won several superiors at state and M-I-N-K contests; Marian Johnson of Omaha, also a superior ranking individual and a host of other excellent musicians. A trio composed of Mildred Knoflieek, violin; Marian Johnson, cello, and Vivian McKimmey, piano, is scheduled to make its debut on the air soon as the college trio. A concert by the orchestra and band as a budget event this first semester is being considered.

Amateur Radio Operators Hold Meeting at Peru

Mildred Knoflicek very ably filled Dorothy Coatney's place, the latter being away at the time. All accompaniments were played t>y Mr. Benford, who took the students participating, in his car. The group performed during both the afternoon and evening and were well received by the audiences.

Broa~cast Program

Features Pep Rally Grads Respond to Broadcasts The radio program presented Tuesday evening, October 12, is being broadcast from the auditorium. It is in the form of a pep rally, and everyone is in-. vited to attend. The band is being featured this week. President Pate is extending a welcome to the Homecomers. "Rusty" will be there in person. Yells and pep songs will give the students and faculty an opportunity to participate in the program. This should prove to be one of the most enjoyable broadcasts of the year. In response to Peru's radio bro;J.dcasts, several telegrams, and many cards and letters have been received. Most of these letters are from alumni of Peru, who are glad to have the opportunity of hearing the old bell pealonce again. These letters are filled with favorable criticisms and helpful suggestions as to how to improve the programs. Everyone in connection with the production of these programs is very much pleased with the splendid reaction on the part of the radio listeners. Here is a partial list of people who have helped contribute to the fan mail, together with several excerpts from their messages: Harry Sopher, TYrone, Oklahoma. Marie Carper, Syracuse, Nebraska"Your program was grand. Everything came in just swell." Gretchen Miller, Hamburg, Iowa"Youan are doing a ·great tlilng for Peru in broadcasting." 'Ihomas F.

Well folkses! I'm disappointed in you. I hear tell that they's them as thinks Twitterbones' puns_ are lousy-incidentally maybe that's what ails our football team too. Quick Henry !-the twit!! All of which goes to prove maybe you're right. Today your old Uncle has a surprise for you in. the way of stuff that makes gossiP:,columnists famou&-and dead. The first one to turn a complete list of the correct answers to the Pedagogian will receive one dollar in cold, hard (to get) cash. It can't Happen Here-or don't you? What promising senior lad, with two eyes, a nose, and a mouth was secretly married just before school started? What do you know about a certain red-headed student who has entered school under an assumed name?-and why?


The following article, re-printed from tht Falls City Journal, is about a former Peru student, on the campus during 1934-3B. Mrs. Ogle will be remembered here as Edith Mitchell. While attending Peru she received the Kappa Deta Pi mention as the freshman student most likely to succeed professionally. She held a scholarship from Falls City and played violin in the college orchestra. Falling from a load of corn fodder, Mrs. Forrest Ogle, 20-year-old bride of a few months, was fatally injured yesterday afternoon in the Dawson vicinity. Mrs. Ogle tumbled from atop the load of fodder when the car driven by her husband negotiated a corner at the Bethany church, five miles south of Dawson. Hearing his wife's body strike the ground, Ogle immediately stopped his machine, picked her up and carried her . mto Rev. D. H. Sill's parsonage.

Interesting things happened behind the scenes at last T.;esday evening's broadcast. At the most inopportune time, Miss Knoflicek's violin string broke just a minute before she was due to go on the air. However, Mr. Jindra came to the rescue and loaned her his violin which was tuned and ready to go. Hanging out the sign, "Do not disturb," the editor of the Pedagogian of the Air, Miss Julia Jean Plasters, fell asleep immediately after her part of the program. Broadcasting must be very tiring when it is possible to fall asleep in the studio while a good program is going on about you.

eru Homecoming Spirit Unchecked By Rain DECORATIONS BEDECK ENTIRE CAMPUS Cheery greetings, hearty handshakes and back-slapping prevailed this week end when the "old grads" came back once more for Homecoming. Although the weather was inclement, and the attendance thus somewhat smaller than usual, everyone that came had the 'usual enjoyable time. The campus was festively arrayed in streamers and penants; Peru's blue and white mingled with the yellow and b.rown of Wesleyan. Those who st.syed at the Dorm were very 1)1Pa$ed to see the li'l'hted welcome 5l~r; abow t!,e steps of Eliza Mo~gan Hall One of the oustanding features, proved to be "Coffin Corner" This was situated in the center of the campus, and was in the form of a graveyard for Wesleyan. There was a tombstone for each player on Wesleyan's first team with a suitable epitaph for each one. Here is the lineup in "Coffin Corner": "Dead End". Wotipka; "Tickled to Death," Ellis; "Caught Off Guard", McNickle; "Coffee Cooled", Critchfield; "Expired", Breasch; "Kicked Off,'' Lay; "Gone Wit!J. the Wind," Williams; "Quartered and Halved," Davies; "Deceased," Bradley; "Passed Out," Burroughs; and "Death Penalty", Ralston. The Bobcat, the college. mascot, was not frogotten either. His cage was gay!y decorated with the letters P. S. 'I'. c. in blue and white. Friday night an enthusiastic group of students and alumni led by the band marched to the business section of Peru, and held a pep rally. After yelling and singing around the big bonfire. the students and former students went to the Music Hall to dance. It was~necessary to transfer the dance to the gymnasium in order to accommodate the large crowd. The alumni registered in the college office Saturday morning. Although many failed to register, there were 68 names in the book. Some came from as far as Chicago, Illinois. About onehalf of the 1938 graduating class was here, but there was only on~ representative from the class of 1897. This was M. A. Sams, who now lives in Lincoln. Saturday afternoon at the football game between Wesleyan and Peru, golden footballs dangled from everyone's lapel and blue feathers protruded from everyone's hat. Many came through the chilly downpour wrapped in cellophane, and others sat huddled together with blankets on their shoulder to watch the muddy struggle. The rain did not dampen the school spirit in the least, and the peppy crowd was overjoyed when Peru "got Wesleyan's goat." Saturday evening the Dramatic Club presented the comedy "Through the Keyhole," which furnished real enthusiasm for everybody. The climax of the Homecoming activ!ties was reached when many went to the gymnasium to dance to the muof Dave Haun and his orchest!'a

DORM INITIATION NOT SO SEVERE "Dorm initiations ain't what they used to be." That was the opinion of the alumni upon looking over the limitat!ons laid down by the "unmerciful" council members for freshmen girls from October 12 to 13. The unruoghed martyrs, attired in unbelted print dresses struggled with suitcases in the dorm and were ordered to keep complete silence upon the campus. Some braids appeared but made a hasty retreat. A few girls ate bread and gravy from Chairs while others mounted ladders to vocalize. The annual date night was well attended by the man-hunting females with their booty.

team. Keep in stride and Kan Kearney. Facts. Football is one of the oldest outdoor sports. Augustus Caesar saw football played. President Theo. Roosevelt helped to make football rules to keep the game from being ruled out. The rules were to make football safer. The term "gridiron" originated from the way football fields were marked off. Fields used to be marked off in squares ten yards in each direction. President Woodrow Wilson played football and later coached a university team. Football was once a game of kicking-and it was against the .rules of the game to run with the ball. The first running play was a mistake which had to be apologized for. William Webb became excited in a game and ran with the ball. The center of a football team used to pass the ball with" his foot.

PERU PROMISES PLENTY OF FIGHT FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! that's what it's going to be Friday night when the Peru Bobcats, who by the way seem to have grown a new set of claws, meet the Kearney eleven, who are l'lnder the direction of "Pop" Kline. You should remember him from last year's basketball game. This football game should be a hard fought game, as the Bobcats will attempt to atone for the slashing 59-0 defeat of last year. The rivalry between the two schools plays an important part in every contest, as it seems to date back to "away back when". Kearney has won two games this year defeating McPhearson, Kansas, and St. Regis, Colorado. They lost to Hasting 13-6 and tied Wayne 7-7. Glance over the following results of clashes of years gone by and with a little reading between lines you will see reason for the fight next Friday.

Fowler Buys Interest In Peru Pointer After six years of teaching among the Santee Indians in Santee, Mr. Millard Fowler, former Peru student and Pedagogian editor, returned last summer to manage the Peru Pointer printing office which prints the Peru college paper as well as the Pointer. As evidences of his. good work in the Indian country .. Mr. Fowler brought with him contracts to publish two Inlian monthly papers. from the Rosebud country, as well as contracts for other job printing. Mr. Fowler in his six year stay among the Indians acquired a fair understanding of the Santee Indian language which especially qualifies him to do printing for the Santees. One of Mr. Fowler's outstanding accomplishments in printing among the Indians, was the publication of "The Niobrary Deanery's Episcopal service !look of Common Prayer." The book is bound in blue leather with a large gilded title, containing both English and Dakota prayers. Mr. Fowler has an excellent coaching ncord also, his team has won it~ dJ~­ trict basketball championship .for. four years, going to the state finals l!l '35. One of his former players is now playing with the Haskell Indians. Discontinuation of the private school system, under which Mr. Fowler was employed, was the cause of his leaving the Indian country. The government is now establishing day schools for the Indians on the reservations. Mr. Fowler obtained his printing equipment from the school in ':'!l1ich he ;10rk~rl. While attending Peru, Mr. Fowler served for three years on the Pedagogian staff, holding both the position of editor and business manager. "I don't mind teaching, but I guess I am Just a printer at heart," said Mr. Fowler, when asked why he did not seek a teaching position. Herbert Graves, who attended Peru in 1934-'35, and '35-'36 and was a member of ·the Pedagogian staff is taking a business administration course at Fresno, California this year.

Kearney Antelopes Defeat Fighting Peru Bobcats Blocked Punts Prove Peru's Downfall Blocked punts caused a stubborn band of Peru Bobcats Friday to lose to a superior Kearney Antelope football team by a 14-0 score. Time after time Kearney drove down the field, only to be stopped by fumble or a sudden holding of the Peru line. Majors would then kick Peru out of danger and Kearney would repeat their gain. Kearney's first touchdown was the result of a long march down the field. Lewis scored from the Peru 3. The kick for point was wide. The half ended with Kearney leading 6-0. In the second half Kearney was unable to score until Hale blocked one of Major's punts. The ball oozed from player to player before Hester fell on it for a touchdown. The try for point was again wide. A little later Harwager blocked another of Majors' punts, the ball bounding through the end-zone for a safety. Final score, Peru 0, Kearney 14. Although three of Majors punts were blocked, Tommy did a grand job of punting. Hi~ kicks averaged 40 yards and he coffin-cornered a 35-yd boot on the Kearney 8. Peru's second stringers staged a belated rally with Majors heaving passes and McHugh hitting the line. They marched 60 yards in six plays. Adams, Punches, Greathouse, Douglao, and Greene looked best for Peru. While Hale, Lewis, and Morrow were cut;;landing for Kearney.

NOTICE There will be no Pedagogian next week due t.o Teachers Convention. The next issue of the Pedagogian will be November 9.

PERU TO HAVE DEBATE TEAM Debate will be put upon Peru's map this year, but neither the map nor the work will be of the "relief" type. A debate class, in which the fundamentals will be studied will begin this week. In from· four to six weeks, tryouts for positions on the team will be held. One does not ha\fe to be a member of the class, nor does he need to have had any previous experience to take part in debate, and all who are intensely interested will be allowed to participate. Several trips will be made, and a few tournaments attended. Debate will be under the direction of Professor Moore. Due to the past success of Mr. Moore in coaching debate, and to an increased number of students interested in the subject this year, Peru is looking to a prosperous season in this field.

New Certification Law Affects Peru Students Affecting vitally every aspiring teacher, the new certification law passed by the last Nebraska Legislature will go into actual enforcement in September, 1938. The new law takes the privilege of granting teachers' certificates out of the hands of the colleges, and places the duty of certification upon the shoulders of the State Superintendent. That means the applicant must be recommended by the faculty of the college attended, to the state normal board, which in turn recommends the individual to the State Superintendent for the granting of the certificate. Another new principle included in the law is the absolute necessit:y: !or practice teaching by rural school teachers working for the general elementary certificate earned by 30 hours of college work. Beginning next September they must do three hours of practice teaching. This will requil'e a new '·~t up on the Peru campus, as rural students have not been required to do practice teaching heretofore. Junior high school teachers of the future will be granted a "three year" senior elemeritary certificate for ~ hours of college work and three hours of practice teaching presented. All universities, state and denominational schools in Nebraska will abide by the terms of the new legislation. Of course, this law will not affect any student already working for a teaching certificate before September, 1938.

PERU MEN PLAN FOR FORMAL Hurrah! Peru men are at last going to have a formal. Plans are under way to have the formal sometime next semester. This will be "step-one" in the men's attempt to "menize" the school. A letter from the Dean was read at Men's club, in which he urged the men to "Back Baller in the field work."

Fair-Headed Girls Dominate CoRege "Blondes preferred-by force" is the slogan of the men of Peru's campus Carefully computed statistics show that light-headed co-eds are gaining a strong foot-hold over the forme r supremacy of their darker sisters Whether this is from heritage or hair dye, we cannot ascertain. Perhaps, you haven't noticed that this fact Is true. That Is perfect!y logical for there are two types o f blondes. In one classification we have ~iscovered many who are not sure int 0 which category they themselves be long. For example, Martha Clifto n often· has asked your correspondent which color her hair most resemble d -that of Margaret Williams or Oeraldine Cordell.

"I noticed the prepanderance of blonds," Mrs. Marsh, girls' dormitory assistant, mythically quoted, "because there were so many people's names I couldn't remember; there were 80 many blonds this fall that they all looked the same to me."

Conclusion: We believe that Jerry's fine traits are assurity of Texas. success in the broadcasts and in his future work. In 1927-28 Elton Reinmiller was

Dramatic Club Changes Discussed


A reorga,nization committee, appointed by the Alpha Psi Omega, com posed of Harold Prichard, Robert Weber and ~1arie Wieneke, met last Tuesday and discussed plans for discrganizing the present Peru Dramatic

In its place, members of Peru Dramatic Olub would become pledges of the Alpha Psi Omega fraternity. This new aiTangement would save a great deal of time and duplication of effort. It was considered last year, as a possibility for the near future, but no action was taken on the plan.

"Oh, snow! How grand!" were the exclamations made by the excited stu.dents Of the ca:n1Jus last week with the season's first snow storm. Thursday morning snow suits, boots, stocking caps and ear m11ffs appeared on the campus in considerable numbers. Snow togs were not the only sign that winter was upon us.

Now and then there was "one down and ten to go," as some one's shoes failed to find solid footing. Every one is looking forward to more snow and cold weather. "I can hardly wait for ice skating", "Do you remember our coasting parties of last winter?" "How soon do you suppose we can coast?" are the eager questions heard on the campus now. Yes snow Is fun. People will enjoy the newness of it for three winter mon,ths;then wlE came tllp longing fOJ.1 spring and away with the snow.

Gilkeson Talks To Omaha Teachers Coach Gilkeson prest •. ;ed a talk on "New Thoughts in Physical Education" to the physical education teachers of the Omaha public schools at Central High cafeteria, Thursday evening, November 18. Mr. Gilkeson spoke on the greater emphais that is being placed on health education in connection with physical education. The physical education teacher of today needs to be able to teach health. Next, Mr. Gilkeson spoke on new ideas in regard to physical education classes in meeting certain standards. That is, in the future it is the plan to introduce fewer activities and raise the standards, rather than introduce many activities and lower . the standards in each activity. In conclusion, Mr. Gilkeson spoke on the new national curriculum of physical education. This curriculum has been recently developed, and is the result of nine years of research on th part of outstanding leaders in the field of physical education.

Stars and a moon hung from the ceiling and the windows and walls were decorated to resemble snow covered peaks. Dancing and cards furnished the entertainment along with a short program. Tue program consisted of vocal numbers, Ed Bentley singing "Shoes", and the "Stardusters" singing "Veni. Veni" and "I Miss My Swiss." Several former students and a number of faculty members were present. Refreshments of punch and wafers were served during the evening. The music for dancing was furnished by an electric phonograph. OUTWARD BOUND IS. BUDGET PLAY "Outward'~Bound," the second dramatic club production this year and the first budget play of the year ,will be presented Friday night, December 10. Tue scenery in this play will be unusual in its simplicity. It will suggest, rather than represent the lounge room of an ocean liner. Everything In the setting is for the purpose of creating a proper mood and atmosphere for the audience. "Outward Bound" is one of. the most provocative plays ever to be produced in this country. There a1'• .Yer:v few written critiCisms of'~illis- play. It seems as though the audience are too much moved for utterance. Members of the Dramatic Club who visited rehearsals last week, have com mented on how well the lines are known, and how hard the cast is working to make the play a real sue cess.

SIFTING SAND GOES TO PRESS It was an ostentatious moment, Wednesday afternoon, December 1, when the .first copy of the fourth issue "Sifting, Sands," Peru's magazine of creative writing, went to press. T'he "rolling over'' of the maehine by Dr. Smith, sponsor-printer, marked the birth of another successful project carried on by the Sigma Tau Delta fraternity. The crew, laboring upon the publication, annoilnced definite plans of a 20 page volume with an attractive green cover housing both original poetry and prose\. Copies will go on sale before. the Christmas holidays !or twenty-five cents.

As the athlete must train to play the 60 minutes of hard football, so must the individual going out into the world train to fight-maybe 60 years; As the athlete must play according to the rules be penalized, so must the individual going out into the world play according to the rules or be penalized; as football is a game in which teamwork is essential, so in life must an individ .. ual work with his fellow man;"· said speaker Armstrong.

Coach Gilkeson then piesented to the people those receiving letters for the first time. They were: McHug·h, McGinley, Adams, Velvick, Purucker, Stark, Boyer and Majors. Those receiving· second letters were: Hall, Barisas, BrWgewater, Mosely, Green and Greathouse. Third letters went to: Mort, Douglas, Pugh, Nelson, and Shields; Fourth letter to: Joel Punches. Those 'eniors having played their last game for Pern were: Barisas, Pugh, Star!:, Douglas and Punches. Coach Gilkeson stated that aside from a few bad beaks and a few boners he was satisfied with the results of the team. Entertainment was furnished by the girls trio, composed of Katherine Bartling, Blanche Freeman and Margery Evans. Eleanor Nieman accompanied them at the piano. Burton Evans, assisted by the trio, sang "Blue Indigo".

Dr. Harajian quoted Sup't Sutton of Atlanta, Ga., to show the relationship between poor teeth and poor school work, and also how the care of the teeth will improve the health and character of an individual who has neglected his teeth. By the use of pictures the process of tooth decay was shown and the importance of tooth care was stressed. Dr. Harajian said, "There is a belief that baby teeth have no roots and merely drop out when the permanent teeth are ready to come through. This is an erroneous notion." He continuerl, "Baby teeth do have roots but they are absorbed and pushed out by permanent teeth. Therefore, it is important to take care of baby teeth until they are forced out by the permanent teeth because, if allowed to decay, the roots are not absorbed and remain as pegs to hamper the growth of the permanent teeth." Dr. Harajian said that the parsky which is used as a garnish should be eaten because it contains vitamins which are good for the teeth. He also said that fruits are helpful to teeth. He ranked toothbrushes and toothpastes as retarders but not as preven~; tatives of tooth decay. In closing, Dr. Harajian gave three points as the formula for having good teeth. They are as follows: (1) Early

STUART "STU'' BALLER While the theme of the week is battles, we wish to pay tribute to one who is advancing the fighting Bobcats-Stuart "Stu" Baller, basketball coach. Coach Baller and his '37 team brought a co-championship to Peru basketball fans. This year he is headed for sole possession of the title. We think he has the material-and we know he is the man for such material. Beside his coaching duties Baller has become extension director. In this position he has introduced new methods of making Peru attactive to possible students. He not only interests prospective students but grads as well. For example, we present the Peru hour and the broadcast of football and basketball games.

I was plied with questions by that lady and also by Mrs. Ilma Kennedy Bickle of Greeley, Colorado, formerly of Brownville graduate of 1910, and Mrs. Iris Bickle Reeder of Kimball, Nebraska, who attended school in Peru. They were interested in the many changes in the campus and regretted that it had been necessary to completely demolish the old Normal Hall which held recollections for each. Mrs. Taylor recalled holding classes there, and the use of the Everett Room for dramatics; also the construction of the Library with the "Little Theatre" as an inducement for her to remain at Peru rather than affiliate herself with Kearney College. She asked of many Peru people and especially of Dean Delzell and Miss Esther Clark with whom she taught. Iris Bickle Reeder remembered almost ruining her voice singing in the old chapel with it lack of acoustics.

PERUVIAN SNAPS FACULTY FACES Mr. Peterson, the PERUVIAN photographer, is now busy taking informal photographs of faculty members for the Faculty Section of the 1938 PERUVIAN. A wholly new and di.fierent Faculty Section is being planned for this year's PERUVIAN, in which informality will be· the theme. Organization pages for the 1938 PERUVIAN are being planned. Here, too, informality will be the theme. The staff is working on plans to include informal group pictures, as well as paneled groups, on organizatiol! pages. The beginning· of the second semester will bring with it a concentrated sales and advertising campaign. Various contests to create an interest in the book will be introduced. It is planned to have a PERUVIAN table in the faculty room during registration so that all those who wish can reserve their Peruvians at that time. Peru, Auburn, Nebraska City, and portions of Lincoln and Omaha will b~ canvassed for advertising during the next two months. The advertising Bt'Ction has been "pepped-up" so that advertising will carry a new life and interest to the readers. The theme of it all, from the business end, is to make everyone· concerned "PERUVIAN CONSCIOUS" andi to produce the best annual that has ever been turned out at Peru. REGISTRATION

Registration for the second semester will begin at eight o'clock Monday morning January 24. The doors of the auditorium will open at 7:45. With the exception of a few minor changes the schedule for the new semester is as published in the catalogue.

DRAM'\.TIC CLUB SHOWS.NEW PEP Stop the presses! A world record has been broken- The usually slow parlimentary procedure became a whirlwind when nine different types of business were disposed of and six com mittees were appointed in twenty-five minutes at the last meeting of the , Dramatic Club. Rejuvenation after the separation from Alpha Psi Omega seemed to be the motif of the meeting. Whiz-BangWon't-Weaken-Werner, the new President, took charge, after which the members decided that they would take charge, too-of some change. It was discovered that it costs the club twenty cents a player to make up individuals for plays, so the group decided to face the situation, and charge ten cents a head. The members did not feel that they should engage in the garter business and be a suporter for other campus g-roups, so th;y decided that a nominal fee will, also, be asked as rental for cost.umes used by other organizations. That took most of the time, but so·m rhe business rame and disappeared like snow on a defrosted windshield. A committee was appointed to draw U,l a constitution and by-laws, volunters were readily enlisted for choral reading a la Wieneke and for plays by Director Ficher, a plan was agreed! for the request of a co-sponsor, a celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of D. C. next fall was discussed, and the formalities at last passed which completed the separation from the fra ternity.

Peru Students .Judge Debates Assuming a debate judge's wig apparently isn't so easy according to members of Professor Moore's debate class who judged five rounds of high school debate at the Auburn High school at Auburn, Nebraska, Saturday, January 15.

George Grossoheme,, Ruth Crone, Thomas Chinnock, Maxine Gailbrath, Mary Lizabeth Werner .and Professor Moore ruled descisions between Auburn, Plattsmouth, Sabetha, Nebraska City and Beatrice high school debate teams.

This Friday finds the Bobcats completing the semester by frolicking with a team of "has beens." Said "has beens," from past experience, promise to give Baller"s boys a stiff workout. Friday night will be your chance to see those graduates whose name& are history at Peru. Seniors can ..become "young" again as they watch their old favorites sprint up an1i down the floor. For fun and enjoyment we advise you to attend the game between Peruvians of this year and Peruvians of other years. The graduates this year will find they are up against one of the strongest teams in Peru history. A well-balanced team; a tall team; a fast team and a. fighting team. So far this team has not met defeat. Sport writers predict one defeat during the season. Let's hope they are wrong-we want an undefeated season. From now on the team is at full strength, as Mcintyre, Miller and Dean will be eligible next week.

Although Leonard Bell's Peru Bobkittens finally gained a 25 to 21 decision at Nebraska City Friday/ nig·h.t, Bill Ossian's N. C. H. S. kids perked up a bit from previous performances and the result kept a capacity crowd in Junior High gym on its feet during the last two quarters. Playing their best game of the season, Nebraska City started slowly but finished with a bang. Only the eagle eye of a stocky guard named Pugh kept Nebraska City from a victory. Pugh caged four f).elders when the Kittens needed them badly in the second half. With Adair,s <tnd Le~,hy showing the way, the Kittens took an early lead, saw it whittled into a 4-all deadlock at the end of the first quarter and tl:u.

Refreshed by the rest period a rejuvenated Nebraska City quintet took to the floor for the second half. While the de·fense held the hard-driving Peru kids to four points, Eglsaer, Williams and Kastner began the overhauling process. Williams, celebrating his return to the lineup, contributed a fielder and a gift toss when Leahy fouled him. The pace quickened at the start of the final quarter, but stellar defensive play by both clubs kept the ·first four minutes scoreless. Metz broke 100~0 for a dribble-in to slice the margin to one point. Then Pugh began his game-winning spree, although it was a scoring duel between him and Carpenter, Nebraska

"People hide their eyes at t!ie mention of sex, but there is nothing .ibout it indecent or vulgar, except for tne abuse of it, just as their is indecency in abuse of anything. Sex, itself, is holy, and sacred. "There are three venereal disea~es in Nebraska: soft ulcer, gono!Thea and syphilis. In the tropics there are more. One of these will not develop into another, but it is possible to have two or more at the same time. "If it were not in respect for the feelings of the survivors of the dead, syphilis would lead all diseases as a killer. It causes blincliness, deafness; it attacks the liver and the spleen; it causes many of ths so-called heart diseases and sofetening of the brain. "Every year there are fifty thousand of still-born infants due to the i'tffiiction of the parents with syphilis, and 100,000 who are blind or deaf. Eighty-five per cent of expectant mothers who do not have treatment have children who are in some way abnormal. "Syphilis can be cured," he declared. Dr. Zirnmeror concluded the lecture by showing a group of pictures of syphi!is.

MINK Debate Set For March 4 and 5 RESOLVED: That the several states should adopt a unicameral system of Legislation. This is the subject to be debated at the MINK Debate Toumament which is to be held on Peru's Campus on March 4 and 5. Thomas Chinnock of DeWitt is the student· manager of the Tournament Last year there were debate teams from most of the neighboring towns and this year it is expected that there will be a larger number entered. -----Added Library Hour P V l bl roves a ua e Peru students have been granted an additional hour to study in the library from five until six .P· m. After the Student AdVisory Council submitted the request to the president, a study was made of the hourly attendance in the library over a period of a month. Miss Peterson computed the following figures: 8:00 .................... 21.93 9:00 .................... 35.94 10:00 33.47 11:00 27.87 1:00 39.74 2:00 .................... 49.15 3:00 .................... 42.36 4:00 ................... 34.38 7:00 .................... 25.69 8:00 .................... 37.06 Before opening the library at that hour President Pate asked all those who would use it then to sign up, so that they ·.vould know if there were enough to justify keeping it open. Sixty-three indicated that they would take advantage of this oppor- · tunity. However, only twenty-five of those people had been in the library at that time by Thursday, but about fortytwo people altogether had been in both Tuesday and Wednesday. Others are finding that extra time unexpectedly advantageous. A num ber of appreciative remarks have been made about it. It is somewhat of an experiment to see how long that interest will last. In the meantime, instructors are expecting better prepared lessons. Christian Groups Plan For Conference "Listen!" "It's in the air!" Don't you hear " "Y. w. c. A. and Y. M. C. A. conference is coming!" Y. T. Wu, an eminent Christian youth leader, was the principle speaker in 1937. He had formerly served outstandingly for ten years in the Chinese Customs Service. Having been in this service that long he decided to devote his entire life to Christian service. Prominent mm _like Y. T. Wu give interesting talks each year. Instructions are given to the omcers concerning their work as leaders of the local groups. Peru State Teachers College will be host this year to the conference, which is held annually on the campus of some school in the state of Nebraska. Every Y. W. C. A:, and Y. Y.. 0. A. organization in the state is invited.


TUMBLING ACT "Stu" Baller Urges United Team Support Erwin Juilfs presented his rascals in a pep program at Friday's convocation, His rascals were composed of the college band under Jack Hazelton's leadership and the tumbling team of Flo and Joe. The band opened the program and were followed by a tumbling· act in which Flo (Clark Finney) from the W. A. A. and Husky Joe (Gilbert Purucker) from the physical education department figured prominently. With a ft.utter of feminine charms Flo introduced "Stu", who spoke of the basketball games of the week end. "What the boys do in the next week will in my mind determine just what kind of a team we have," he stated. "Denominational schools are giving their best wishes to Doane tonight for as yet no denominational college has won a game from a state college." "For the last four years," he continued, "Marvel 6' 6" giant of Hastings has competed with our own Dean McCormick, who stands 6' 4" in his own stockings. Last year Marvel, without a doubt, out played McCormick; at Hastings it was the reverse." Tomorrow night they meet each other for the last time. Why doesn't the student bodiY sit together and really back the boys up? Yours is a team that you should be proud of, in fact, it's the best club I've ever coached," he asserted. "Get in one section and make that auditorium boom." GILBERT NEW HEAD OF JUNIOR CLASS At the Junior class meeting January 31 Gordon Gilbert was elected cla>s president. He succeeded Gerald Fich· ter Who is now regi~tered as a Sedor. Harold Boatman and Bill Mooney were the other nominees. Willis Wirth, treasurer, suggested that members pay their dues of bOc as soon as possible. Freshman Board To Be Restored The Freshman bulletin board which for ten years has stood between the gymnasium and the Administration building was blown over by the strong winds January 24. Miss Tear assures the students that it will be back iI; its original prominent place on the campus as soon as new standards have been made. It is being worked on in the "shop" now. The Fl"eshmen have permission· to post their club rotices on the Administratio~ door for the time being.

HIGDEN TALKS ON PODUNK TO OXFORD From Podunk to Oxford was the topic of an informal discussion given by Dr. Higden, a missionary from the Philippines, on Saturday afternoon, Fetiruary 5 ill. the 'Music Hall. Podunk is any place on the fom· crossroads where there might be a filling station and a hot-dog stand and where most people are raised and get their start in life. Oxford is the place where some of the narrowness of Podunk is lost, Dr. Higden stated that people really need the vital things that are received from Podunk although Oxford brings about wide tolerance and broadmindedness. Dr. Higden told briefiy of his life and education. Of special interest was a description of his trip to the Holy Land and Jerusalem. The political conditions and educational system in the Philippines were described by Dr. Higden. He told of the way a uniform language was brought about and learned by the Philippines. In discussing the religious problem he concluded that in small towns, the churches should be united so that the most may be obtained from them. Following the discussion the Y. W. served a tea in honor of Dr. Higden.

BENEFIT STUDENTS Clements Has Done Fine Work in Peru Helping Peru students and graduates secure teaching positions with the full benefit going to each appilcant, has been the unselfish purpose of the Peru Teachers Placement Bureau for r.he r;ast twelve years. The present placement forms have reach0d a near peak in effici.ency which is quite apparant by the facv that practically rvery outgoing A. B. de,.ree stildent has joined the Placement Bureau; and by the fact that, OVBr a span of twelve years, membership inc?·eased to Dpr.10xim2.tcly two Jrnndred new members last year. During the past two years, there was a noticeable increase in calls for teachers over previous years. The outlook for this year's crop of out-going teachers should be encouraged, for at the present, every indication points toward more teacher-calls even than last year. Under the competent supervision of Mr. Clements, Superintendent of the Training school, the Bureau has located a high percentage of its graduates in good positions. Members of each year's graduating class receive first consideration and when a candidate is notified of a vacancy through the office, his are sent just as soon as he indicates that it will apply. Due to li:r·ited office assistance, it is impossible for the Bureau to make up and send out credentials every time a candidate learns of an opening through some other source. However, when a school official desires them, credentials are sent out. Special "Request for Credential" blanks are supplied for this purpose. And as a last word, it is suggested that each candidate choose his or her references carefully. ~INK Dramatic Arts Contest to Be Held An announcement has been made by Professor R. D. Moore of the Speech Department that on March 25 and 26 the Dramatic Club wi.H sponsor the annual· M. I. N. K. Dramatic Arts Contest for high schools.

Plans for the contest have been made by a committee composed of the following: Professor Moore acting as the' Chairman, Charles Parnell, Mary Lizabeth Werner, Marie Wieneke and Robert Weber. The committee states that they are expecting more schools to compete in the contest this year than in pr(;Vious years.

HASTINGS UPSETS UNDEPEATED BOBCATS McCormick and Marvel Stage Close Battle Hastings handed the Peru Bobcats an unexpected defeat last Saturday evening to the tune of a 44 to 36 score. The following is an account of the turning point in th~ game: Time was growing short; the score stood 34 to 34; Halladay dropped in a field goal to give Peru a momentary two point lead. Overturf, speedy Bronc forward, im,.'llediately rang up two points on a set-up to offset the Cat lead; the score then stood 36 to 36. The crowd grew tense; a wave of tensity swept over both clubs; passes became wild and inaccurate. There was a rough house struggle to i;ain possession of the ball; neither team seemed to have control of the ball for any length of time; but out of it all the Hastings club emerged the victor by an eight point margin. Those Broncs responsible for the last minute scoring were Marvel, who tipped in two fielders; Overturf, 'who zipped a pretty set-up through the old hoop; and Grant, who hurriedly flip" ped in a final two-pointer from near the free throw line. A general survey of the game reveals that Peru attempted a total of 98 shots as compared to the 72 shots tried by Hastings. Free throws are included in this number of attempts made by both teams. OUt of the total, Peru took fifteen free throws and made eight; While Hastings tried .eleven and also made eight. Of the eighty-three field attempts tried by Peru, fourteen successful shots were made. Hasting's percentage was much higher, for the Broncs ma<le eighteen successful shots out of sixty-one field tries. The battle between centers Marvel and McCormick was a fairly even tussle. "Mac" came out of the game with eleven points to Marvel's ten points. McCormick attempted eleven field shots in the first half, while Marvel tried two.

Bronchos Victorious Well, the Bronchos galloped home with a victory but they knew they had been to a ball game. The Bobcats played a hard game against Doane Friday night and Saturday night was just 'one of those nights when even the best college team in the state will fail to find the hoop. Busy Week But that was last week and there are three games to look forward to this week. The Bobcats meet Nebr. B at Lincoln, Wednesday; Kearney at Kearney, Thursday; and then go back to Lincoln to play Wesleyan, Friday. From the looks of that llst the boys will have a busy week. Look in the Gym If you would like to see some basketball games while the varsity ls out of town, all you have to do ls drop into the gym for some intramural games.

Peruvians Attend


"King Richard

"King Richard II," a play by William Shakespeare, was presented in Omaha at Technical High School on Wednesday evening, Feb. 9, under the auspices of the Omaha Drama r,eague. The company presenting the play started a year ago in New York and played for 171 successive nights before beginning this tour. A number of Peruvians were fortunate in having the opportunity to see this production. 'Those attending were: Dr. and Mrs. G. W. Smith, Prof. R. Moore, Miss Florence Martin, Prof. w. B. Thorson, Dr. Mrs. B. K. Baker, Marie Wieneke, Anne Louise Short, Charles Parne! ', and Harold Prichard. These people ' brought back enthusiastic reports ncerning their enjoyment of the 1 Dr. Smith's r >,ion was summarized in this stateml "I was agreeably surprised." He ' 'ted his point 1Jf view by explainL "Richard II was a less import J less promising play for moaern review and therefore he had been a little skeptical about the production of it. He also stated that he had r,;ained a different impression of several of the characters in the various scenes, as the interpretations they gave presented a new id'ea of what Shakespeare really meant.

Original Cabin Sturdily Built E. D. Bartling, prominent Nebraska City business man, has taken it upon himself to make another of the Nebraska sites of historic significance presentable to the public, by re-establishing the original log cabin and cave used by John Brown, an abolitionist set on freeing slaves, as one of a number of his underground railroad stations for fugitive slaves. The cabin is located on a quarter section at 20th street and 4th Corso. It was originally the home of Allan B. Mayhew, built in the year 1857. The logs for the cabin were taken from the premises and hued to perfection, as the mortise work will readily show. No nails were used in the construction and yet it stands today just as sturdy a building as the day it was built. It is 14 feet by 16 feet, and• is set upon a foundation of natural lime stone.

The quarter section upon which ii; now stands is the original site upon whio() the cabin was built; however, due to the fact that a mile and a half Miller Talks on of new highway is to be run directly Egypt at Y.

I know one prof. who owes eighteen holes of golf a day to the ~t that he uses outlines in preparing for his classes. And, if the truth were known those outlines eased the way to iegree for many an instructor. Another young prof I know boasts a mighty fine Rumba and "ings a pretty mean Big Apple. It seems the outlines give him 1e to get out and "swing it." That same young prof swipes half of the campus queens right

In common with many of my fellow collegians, there is the \gestion of the scallion in my Big Apple and there is something the camembert in my Rumba.

A PERU YEARBOOK FOR EVERY STUDENT through the means of registration fees is the dream of Peruvian officials. Therefore, we present to you this week their view points and a Pedagogian .Look-in On Peruvian Feelings on the question of "A Peruvian for Everybody." Before ,yve undertook this problem we checked various angles. The Pe,ruvian cooperated by giving us figures they have worked out on the problem. Figures showing how much cheaper a year book would be if everyone bought the book. For this and other reasons we advocate the requiring of buying Peruvians when you register.

STUDENTS HAVE SHOWN BY POLLS that they desire a yearbook-yet always a great number do not buy books. In the same vein many do not have their picture takenyet they receive some space in the year book-at the expense of others. Why shouldn't students be required to buy a yearbook? They have to buy a contingent ticket-are football games more indica· 'tive of student life than is a yearbook? Are our past budget events -such as the Ted Shawn dancers-worth as much as a copy of the students' life in college? The White Hussars pleased us last year --but will their music ring in our ears ten years from now? Nobut a Peruvian will always be there to remind one of his college days.







WE HEREBY PRESENT for your undivided attention and thought an all-important question-the Pedagogian Look-in On Peruvian Feelings for this week. Should the Peruvian be left to struggle on in a constant light of uncertainty, in so far as its finances are concerned, or should it be included on the budget ticket? If the Peruvian is included on the budget ticket, it will necessitate an increase in the price of the ticket. However, it might be interesting to y0u to learn that approximately 315 students-and unhappy 70 per cent of the college enrolment-are annually overlooking an opportunity for a substantial money mving, throughout their college course. And the remaining BO per cent are giving up their chance to own a Peruvian because of a lack of available money, when under a · slightly altered arrangement, a budget ticket costing approximate! v $5.00 per semester would provide these people . with budget tickets, photographs, and Peruvians as well as save 70 per cent of the student body a matter of two dollars and a half. As statistics today will show, each student is now paying $7.50 annually for a budget ticket, and those who feel that they can afford it pay out $5.00 more for pictures and Peruvian. The total being $1Z.50 per year for the ticket, pictures, and Peruvian. The saving is readily seen in com paring the cost under the newly suggested arrangement and that of the present plan. Those interviewed were of practically a unanimous opinion that the Peruvian should be included on the budget ticket. Anita Searle: "It's a good idea." Barney Barrisas: "Sorry, haven't time to discuss the matter." Mary Slack: "This is a matter for the coming student body to decide. Under capable leadership, it would increase the prestige of the school." Mary Werner: "I am in favor of placing the Peruvian on the budget ticket, knowing that it will be beneficial to the student body as a whole, for the Peruvian is a part of school

Book worms, your menu this week contains two novels and a book of travel. There is a rental fee of ten cents for one book. "What Is American" by Frank Ernest Hill. What is American? "It is an old question. It has been asked by Europeans, it has been asked by Americans. It seems to worry us." Mr. Hill attempts to answer the question with unusual care and completeness. The author inserts passages of glowing prose, descriptive of the American land and the American climate.

Professor R. T. Benford Relates History of Hymns At Y. M.-Y.

w. Meeting

Professor R. T., instructor in Piano and Organ.spoke Tuesday evening at the joint meeting of Y. w. c. A. and Y. M. c. A. on "The His· " tory of Church Music. Italian church music was written in counter-point style at first. Counterpoint style music was sung in a manner similar to that of the round of today, related Mr. Benford. The Chant type of music was developed a little later by the Italians. The early churches had a cho~ which did all the singing. The audience took no part in the services. These choirs were made up of men only, as women were not allowed to sing in the choirs. He stated that Henry Parsell was the outstanding English hymn writer. Oratorials, Masks, and Cantatas were among the English types of church music. Mr. Benford explained . 1s received . th'is name behow ora t ona cause the place where they were sung was called an Oratory. The Oratory is similar to a small auditorium. Trained groups usually sing the Oratorials, Masks, and Catantas. This does not mean that a person with an ordinary voice cannot sing these. They can if they are in a groupthat practices• singing these types of music. Today the hymn is used in the churches most. Mr Benford said, "Each hymn has its own style." Hymns have a purpose in the church service. He brought out that this purpose is to give the audience a chance to participate in the service. .... concllinis speech M.r. Benford gave the .story of the writing of two hymns;l~lest Be The Tie" and "Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus."

Action Revolves Around Small College Life With an authentic college atmosphere bringing many surprises and unusual situations, "Spring Fever" promises to be a hilarious comedy. The play is to be presented April 8. From the fifty that appeared at tryouts Professor Moore chose the following cast: Howard Brant, a senior at Brookfield College-Gerald Bowen. Ed Burns, a chemistry student-Dick Slagle Vic Lewis, an art student-Lloyd Heim Lew Herron, a journalism student-Mary E. Slack Mrs. Spangler, the landlady-Leona Simmons Anne Prucell, Howard's heart interest -Marva! Lucas Vivian George, Vic's heart interest-Ruth Wilson Henry Prucell, Anne's father, a rich manufacturer-Gilbert Purucker Phoebe Prucell, Anne's mother-Lois Nash. Maude Corey, Howard's spinster aunt -Mary Olive Richardson Professor Virgil Bean, of the Zoology department-Thane Cook Dr. Dixon, President of Brookfeld College-Bernard Goerke. Though this is the first major part for most of the cast they are all very competent and promise to give an exceptionally fine performance. The entire acti0n of the play takes place in the living room of Mrs. Spangler's rooming house. It is at BrookfiQld college, a small co-educational college in the east, on the day before commencement. Marie Wieneke is the student director.

As important as the team was the large enthusiastic crowd ever on hand to urge the Bobcats on. The now-famous cow-bell clanked not only at home, but also in enemy buildings. Peru support was evident in each and every game. Few boos were uttered on Peru's court-the few that were heard were quickly hushed. Respect for the eleven men on the floor seemed uppermost in Peru minds. As an organ of Peru o,inion, we want to congratulate Peruvians on their Peruvian showing.

He may be untidy about the 1 ouse. In his manner of eating, or in the care of his person and clothing; that will be most unpleasant and embarrassing to his grandchildren, but it will be too late to change his ways then. Perhaps he can be a "horrible example" to them, but who wants to live ·for that? Worse yet, he may be untidy about his thinking, ideas always dls· organized and never where he can find them when they are needed, s0 that he must forever borrow from other people. He may have such b:.d habits as exaggeration of misrep1:osentation or dodging the issue, all of which are likely to make him unpopular, but you'll just have to p~t up with the old codger. He may be physically weak, with a

It's too bad, because those interests cr.uld make him a much happier to live with. If he is inclined to fuss about everything-the food and clothes provided 1 for him, the house he lives in, your relatives, and the world in general, you'll just have to "grin and bear it."

points being looped through the baskets and Peru dropping a


verdict last Tuesday. The game, which was a first rounder in the National Intercollegiate Championship at Kansas City,

was the favorite of the crowd.


Marshall used a fast-.breaking offense which proved too speedy for the Bobcats. Peru retaliated with their usual "dead-eying" from the foul line and

follow-ins. The loss of McConnick, due to an ankle injury, was a serious handicap to the Bobcats.

The banquet was attended by 153 conference delegates. During the meal the members sang their school songs. The brass quartette, composed of Neil Good, Frederick Wolter, Richard Turner an" Jack Hazelton played two selections. Due to the illness of Howard Miller who had been scheduled to sing for the banquet, Gordon Gilbert sang in his place. He sang "I Love Life" and "Without a Song."

GONKLE'S PLAY IS LATE HIT OF SEASON Parents Are Proud of Son's Good Work Dr. E. P. Conkle of the dramatic arts faculty at the University of Iowa has recently written a play called "Prologue to Glory" which has scored a success in New York City being produced by the federal government w. P. A. theater project. The play has its setting in New Salem, Ill., and centers around the love affair of Abe Lincoln and the half-legendary Anne Rutledge, who died in her youth. Keith Wilson, columnist of Spotlight and Reel of the World Herald says concering the play "I think 'Prologue to Glory' is one of the finest, because it is one of the simplest and truest and most reasonable of our biographical dramas. Mr. and Mrs. E. G. Conkle, parents of Dr. Conkle, now residing in Peru, related last Sunday evening that "Worth graduated from Peru State Teachers College in 1919 and from Nebraska State University in 1921. He was given a Guggenheim fellowship in '30 and spent the year '31 in London, where he spent a lot of time writing." "Worth's previous work," his mother added, "was given too much unfavorable criticism by TIME magazine, but this time, they weren't so bad. They liked it except for the fact that the:; thought Lincoln's life in the pla, was sentimentalized and too "BoJ Scoutish." Nevertheless, Mr. and Ivlrs. E. G Co11kle are proud and happy paren;~ today, because of the fact that thet son has achieved the success of havin1 written a popularly recognized "lat1 season hit." "And," Mrs. Conkle concluded witl a twinkle in her eye; "part of our boy' play is going· to be broadcast nex Thursday evening at 7:00 o'clock ove Ru~y Vallee's program."
