Be- cause the Perielean Literary Society, our sponsors, study literature we have as our purpose the study of poetry. Mary Hill, our vice-president, was in charge of the programs. These consisted of an- thologies of American and British poets given by the various members. On the first and third Monday night of every month one was able to hear the din and clatter of the Thalians merging from one of the member's homes. Flourishing her black whip, Dorothy Esser, as sergeant-at-Arms, quieted the members in or- der that our chaplain, Jane Leber, might lead them in prayer. Witli one year of shorthand behind her, Nancy Osgood, our industrious recording sec- retary, wrote incessantly as our president, Lois Foor, began the business meeting. Down on her knees, Ruth Brogan, treasurer, begged certain con- servative members to pay their dues and Barbara 104 Black, pen in hand, wrote the invitations to the junior members. Before the social part of the meeting a sum- mary of the activities throughout the year was given by Marilyn Weike1', our Inter-Club Council representative. The first of our social events was a pot-luck dinner given in honor of the junior members. A few weeks later we enjoyed a tobogganing party, even though our good-natured advisers, Mrs. Stoepler and Miss Mildred Johnston. complained of frostbitten toes for the week that followed. Our last event of the year was a tea given in honor of our mothers. This year has been an enjoyable one for the members and advisers alike. The club that start- ed with twelve seniors and later added eight jun- iors, grew in good name as well as in size. We hope that through the years the Thalians will continue to advance and be a credit to our spon- sors. to our advisers, and to DeVilbiss High School. 1... il

This word was heard throughout the evening every other Monday night as the Peries held their meeting. Ginnie Orthwein patiently tried to conduct a meeting while Nancy Sloan. Ser- geant-at-Arms. repeated that well known word. quiet. After our Chaplain. Hazel Murphy. opened the meeting with a prayer. Jeanne Davies. Record- ing Secretary. frantically scanned her notebook for the minutes of the last meeting. Nancy Ander- son, Treasurer. tried every known method and every unknown method for collecting the dues. Carolyn Bowers, Vice-President. announced the literary program for our next meeting. while Mari- lyn Brubaker, Corresponding Secretary. was seal- ing the invitations for our Mothers Tea. This procedure is exaggerated for we really accomplished a great deal at our meetings. This year we studied writers contemporary with the twentieth century, and we studied and later saw the musicals, Carousel and Shotcboat, when they came to the Paramount Theater. The lives and the books we enjoyed most were those of Molnar and his play Liliom, Louis Bromfield and Mrs. Parkington. Hemingway and For lT'lmm the Bells Toll, Edna Ferber and Slzorrbonf. We Peries couldn't have gotten along and our year wouldn't have been so successful if it hadn't been for our two marvelous advisers. Mrs. Margaret King and Miss Ursula Schmit. They were so understanding. helpful, and such good sports. Because we felt there should be a greater opportunity for belonging to a literary society, we sponsored the beginning of the Thalian Literary Society. And of course we all racked our brains for a clever, original way to elect the king and queen of our annual DeVilbiss Week. The fun and ex- citement of this special week more than repaid us for our work. We are all grateful for the opportunities that the Periclean Literary Society offered us. Xve were able to better understand todays literary works, to develop our talents. and to make many lasting friendships. To the Pericleans we tie many memories which will never be lost. 103

Sub-Debs Sanction Spirited Fun One cold, dark, starless night in November, eighteen little shivering juniors were initiated at the homes of Nancy Reister and Mary Lou David. After going through all the stunts the seniors had rigged up for them, they were presented with cor- sages and congratulations at l..ou's house. Lighting ODI' way through the year were Marion Rees, Presidentg Grace Yarnell, Vice- Presidentg Joanne Lankenau, Secretaryg Elizabeth Strout, Treasurerg and Carol Michelsen. Chaplain. Our advisers, Miss Mildred Pasch and Miss Marie Lerche, set a shining example for us by their pleasant ways and helpful suggestions. Our first highlight of the year was decorating the archway by 122 for Christmas. At the head of the decoration committee was Mary Lou David. The theme of the decorations was "The Night Be- fore Christmasf, Although we didn't win the prize, it had been great fun decorating. Then we focused the spotlight on our Moth- ers' Tea which we held at the Toledo Museum of Art. The Museum presented a program before the tea was served. Carol Michelsen was in charge of this affair. We were also very much honored to be pick- Tnp Row. L to R: Mary Rowland. Doris Hullxger. Rrtw Tn-1: Diarie Paulmti-fz. Row Three: Sue Grossenhaeher, Mary ,lane Watkins, lieul.nl1lv.m Illarklius.
