The literary society is a nursery for the development of our future leaders of society.

The society was incorporated under the laws of Nebraska in 1871. at which litre l)r. (i. F.. Howard, now of the State University, was president. Hundred Jour teen

The chief purpose and aim of the organization have been to afford students the opportunity of appearing before an audience in order that they might develop grace, case, expression and a love for the best there is in all forms of literary, musical and forensic accomplishments. In the years gone by several hundred students have availed themselves of the opportunities and privileges afforded by this society. Among the long list of names of life members that have been added to the roll year by year, may be found many of remarkable talent and notoriety. The following are some of tin best known: Hon. T. J. Majors, ex-lieutenant governor. Peru; P. T. Hayden, lawyer. Nebraska City; Miss Lydia Bell, noted as a reader; Judge A. C. Troup, Attorney Blackburn, Omaha: Dr. G. E. Howard. University of Nebraska, and the following members of the Normal faculty: President J. W. Crabtree, Pro- fessors French, Duncanson, Delzell and Bengston; Misses Ellis, Loomis, Mears and Culbertson. Suffice it to say in regard to the work of the year just passed that it has been characterized thruout by most excellent programs, willingness on the part of the members to perfor i whatever duties were assigned to them, and a manifestation of enthusiasm and interest unsurpassed in the past history of the society. The hall has been repaired so that it looks very beautiful. Dark green paper adorns the walls; this merges into a light green, above the window casings; and the ceiling is covered with white grained paper. 'Phis is bordered with a gold molding which gives it a panel effect. New shades have been purchased for the windows and other minor improvements have been made, such as help to make it a most beautiful place for society meetings. These gratifying results have been due in a large measure to the efficient work of the presidents, F. O. Zink and G. H. Lanpherc. in their respective terms, the hearty co-operation of their various committees, and the loyal support of the members. Prof. Delzell. the society’s adviser, is deserving of much praise for his ever ready and appropriate suggestions and plans. The year of 1007-1908 will be looked back upon with pride and satisfaction in years to come by every loyal member who participated in making it a success.
