Zets And Peries Brighten Their
L4Books are the compasses that help us navi-
gate the seas of human life." 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

such good times as a roast at the Edison Club. Mau-

with refreshments. The Zets also sponsored a mass
meeting preceding a football game making use of

undertook Book Weeli and with the committee
composed of Ruth Ramsey. Virginia Butler. Norma
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

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

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.

Quiet! 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
Because we felt there should be a greater
opportunity for belonging to a literary society, we
sponsored the beginning of the Thalian Literary
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.
