This year the course of the Zetalethean Literary Society has been steered by this compass of good books. The aims of the club are to develop appre- ciation of good literature. to create friendship and understanding, to develop potential leaders, and to serve the school. This year Miss Brown. librarian from the West Toledo branch library. gave a series of book reviews on different types of literature including novels. biographies. and histories. Vlfe were in- vited to attend a tea at the West Toledo library honoring Jean Could. noted Toledo authoress of Miss Emily and Jane. Mr. Clyde Kiker broadened our interests in world affairs by his talk on inter- national relations. Our literary endeavors were livened with such good times as a roast at the Edison Club. Mau- mee. Ohio. ta huge successt and holiday parties with refreshments. The Zets also sponsored a mass meeting preceding a football game making use of Dc-Vilbiss students and alumni with talent. We undertook Book Weeli and with the committee composed of Ruth Ramsey. Virginia Butler. Norma 102 Dotson, Katharine Photos. and Judy Price, we as- sisted Miss Schueren and the Devilbiss library in raising money for new volu111es. A variety show was the reward for all those who supported this drive. The Toledo Museum of Art furnished a lovely background for the city-wide Zetalethean Tea. At Christmas the Zets again helped with dec- orating DeVilbiss. The committee in charge was Betty May Cook, Irma Wz1lte1's, Ruth Ramsey and Katharine Photos. ln February lVliss Bloom of the Devilbiss faculty spoke on her trip to the Zionists' Conven- tion in Geneva, Switzerland. A backwards party preceded by a penny supper held at the home of Betty May Cook completed the month's activities. The active and ambitious leaders of our own DeVilbiss Zetalethean Literary Society are Kathar- ine Photos, Presidentg Arlyne Stoll. Vice-Presi- dent: Virginia Butler.

Chevaux Club Blazes New Trails This club decided to go places in the riding world this year. And to canter us through we elected the following officers: Marilyn Vifeir, Pres- identg Virginia Reese, Vice-President and Inter- Club Council Representativeg Marjorie August, Secretary, Marian Van Gorder, Treasurer. We chose Mrs. Helen Malone, owner of Ascot Stables, and Miss Mildred Pasch for our advisers. Under our skilled and excellent instructor, Mr. Mel Wilson, we learned that there was a great deal more to horseback riding than just hopping a nice little a good rider We did just on your favorite steed and taking jaunt. We learned tl1at to become one should start by learning 'stackf' this by practicing saddling, bridling, unsaddling. and unbridling our horses. Those more fortunate wir s et 1 a wm ar orie uvust, an mir ev g'lBlBld',Mj Ag dSll' Boyd, who owned their own horses, had more ex- perience than the rest in this. Next came mount- ing and trotting. With trotting came posting and with posting, the aching backs and legs. Then t e rea un starte . anterinv. iis was a ' u - h lf d C C, Tl 'b g ahoon for you must achieve a swaying motion in your back and keep in time with the horse's step. After the first few lessons in cantering, "Oh, my aching hack," was heard many times. A rocking chair motion is usually the description give11 to the feeling of a canter. But after all the aches and pains had diminished we all knew that it had been a worth while experience. We were quite busy this year blazing trails through sixty-four acres of beautifully wooded land at the new Ascot Stables in Sylvania, Ohio. In the spring an indoor barn was built thus aiding our riding during inclement weather. Though small, our club had many good times. We met the last Thursday of every month in the home of one of the members. This year for the first time underelasswomen were allowed to join. Shirley Boyd, Beth Baldwin, Carole Balsmeyer, and Anita Etters became the new members. As this year ends, we look forward to an- other blue ribbon year. 101

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
