Over forty years ago, under the leadership of Wilson E. Majors, the I’hilo-mathean Literary Society found its beginning in 1867. Later, on the 25th day of March. 1870, through the effort of its president. I)r. (leo. Howard, now of the State University, the society was incorporated under the laws of Nebraska. It is now the only literary society bearing this distinction in the state of Nebraska.
We have striven during the past year to keep the work of the society up to the same high standard of the past and if possible to make the work the best in its history.
A regular course of study has been taken up, so that in the programs the members are not only receiving entertainment but also receiving some intellectual benefit for their time spent. During the first semester the American Negro problem was taken up and the subject thoroughly exhausted. In truth, the society became so interested in the subject that they gave an open program in which every phase of Negro life was represented. Music and Expression Hall, in which the program was given, was filled to its utmost seating capacity. During the second semester the society followed the same plan of a course of study, with the same excellent results.
lint the excellent programs and program work is not all that the society has been doing. They have remodeled the room, gotten new furniture, and made many valuable improvements.
flic open sessions at the close of the first and second semesters were not only a great success but were rendered in such a way that the “Old Philo" still holds her high place among the literary societies of the state.
We who have noted the work of the society during this year are proud not only to claim membership to the oldest and strongest society in Peru, but we arc prouder still to be a force in a society that holds for its ideals the social and intellectual betterment of each fellow student.
