Almost with the beginning of Graceland the administration of the college
saw a need for literary development other than that available in the class-
room. lt was on February 8, 1898, that the Athenian Literary Society, the
first of its kind, made its appearance into Graceland College life. Since that
early day hundreds of students have seen the invaluable Worth of the organiza-
tion then established. Through the years that have passed since that time, the
college has grown tremenduously, and with it the literary societies. Each year
sees the Athenian Council trying to meet the needs of the times by making
those changes in the organization which will result in greater efficiency. Out
of the experience of the past quarter of a century has come the Athenian
Federation of Literary Societies with its four groups: Kapforean, Niketes,
Pleiades, and Victorian.
Although this college year has been a difficult one in numerous Ways, the
Athenian Federation has met success to no small degree. With the recodifi-
cation of the rules and regulations of the general Organization, and the initia-
tion of committees on programs and general executive duties, there has been
a distinct contribution to the better literary society of tomorrow. With the
organization of these committees came the desired time to the council which
enabled them to Work on constructive programs for the various groups.
With the changes that have been made this year it is the council's hope that
the Athenian Federations of the years to come shall have benefited by the ef-
forts of the literary organization of 193132. If any measure of success has
been reached this year it has been because of the energetic and capable men
and Women who constituted the council. Each has faithfully taken part in the
busy literary activities of the year and has successfully mastered them.
Much praise is due the Director of Forensics, Miss Florence Thompson, as
Well as Mr. Iames W. Evans, the Assistant Forensic Director. It was under
their leadership, together with that of the president, Paul Utnehmer, that
this college year was a successful one for the Athenian Federation of Literary
