Browsing through last year's Narcissus. Mr. Earl Delph, principal, and his Wife Lola share memories of an
active year at Peru High School. One of his many duties is serving on the publications committee.
"I am especially thrilled with the opportunity
of supervising the children of those who were
in PHS in my earlier years." With this comment
Mr. Delph finishes 22 years as principal of Peru
The administrative tasks for which Mr. Delph
is responsible are time-consuming, however,
he always maintains a keen interest in his tea-
chers and students individually.
Having served as coach in the school system
during the first few years after his arrival here
in l93+5, Mr. Delph is avidly interested in the
athletic lortunes of the school, He works closely
with cheer leaders and coaches in developing
rnorale and school spirit.
Since the ideas of the students are important
to lflr. Delph, he remains in close contact with
their lilies and dislikes through the activities
of tlge Student Council.
People often ask Mr. Deliih whether the prob-
leztis Connected with being a principal have in-
creased during the years, and to this question
he gives an affirmative answer. Necessary
changes in the curricular and extra-curricular
programs have increased the responsibilities
of the administrator.
The present generation, in Mr. Delph's opin-
ion, is scholastically able, and socially and
morally mature. He finds that he is able to talk
"man-to-man" with most of his students.
Mr. Delph's twenty-second year has seen two
changes in his staff, Mrs. Rosanna Garrett, for-
mer extra-curricular bookkeeper, replaced Miss
Charlotte Baker, who retired as secretary to the
principal in lune, 1963. Mrs. Garrett was no
newcomer to the job, as she had served under
Mr. Delph in the same capacity from 1942 to
1946. Mrs. Garrett was replaced by Mrs. Leah
Frymire, whose job includes selling athletic
and cafeteria tickets as well as keeping the
books for the high school.
Another change in the administration offices
was the appointment of Mrs, Alice Moon, for-
mer typing teacher, as dean of girls. Mr. Noel
Davis is dean of boys.
