EVERETT. "Ideal Twentieth century education is efficiency of life. Dextrous hands, alert senses, a well stocked mind, a cultured intellect, a mastered appetite, a functionary liver, a sympathetic heart, devoted ambition, altruistic motives, unblemished character and self-confidence unspoiled by egotism—these arc elements that mark the efficient life. “Such a life comes from hygienic habits, energetic labor, unselfish effort, persistent study, and wholesome knowledge applied until it is woven into every fibre of one’s anatomy. It may be gained by combining opportunities of the home, the school, the church, the community, the gymnasium, the literary hall. The efficient life is the beautiful life, it is the life worth living.” Prof. F. M. Gregg. Colors—Block and Orange Motto—‘'Once an Everett Always an Everett'’ The Everett Society was organized in 1872 and since that date it has been the aim of every member to make it the most flourishing of the literary societies. “All great things have little beginnings.” At first the society met each Friday evening in one of the class rooms. It was not until 1S 5, when the new or south wing of Normal Hall was built, that the Everett Society was given the room it now occupies. The Everetts have always been known for doing things, and this year lived up to their reputation by purchasing a fine new office desk and adorning the walls with beautiful paper, which gives the room a very attractive appearance indeed. The society is one of the fixtures of the State Normal. Its aim is to offer the student an opportunity to master himself, become accomplished and fit himself to be a real factor in life. Broadly speaking, it stands for the cultivation of the best of everything. The enrollment this year is about one hundred forty. Owing to the crowded condition of the room, measures were taken this year allowing each member to invite but one person, that person not to be a member of the school. Among the special features of this year have been the contests. The first was a scries of contests—six in number—the first of which was given Friday evening, December 6. Three members of the faculty. Miss Lucas, Miss Goshen and Prof. P.eck, were appointed judges. The program which won first place in the contest was, “A Colonial Evening,” arranged by Mr. Carl Schott. The second was the annual contest between the Philomathean and Everett societies, which took place in the Normal Chapel on the evening of February 15, kk 8. The program consisted of orations, piano solos, descriptions, readings, a symposium and vocal solos. This year has been one of the most profitable and successful years in the history of the society and the Everetts wish here to attribute a share of their success to the sympathy and hearty co-operation of their adviser, Professor F. M. Gregg. Hundred sixteen

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. The following calendar of a few of the principal programs will aid in recalling many pleasant evenings spent in Philo Hall the past year: •07 CALENDAR Dec. 0—“A Game of Authors.
