As the circus posters say: 120 people! Count them! 120
Not that there are one hundred twenty people in the picture, either. Bui that there ought to he. That is, as many as that were entitled to he in it So. if you count them, kindly make allowance for a considerable number of absentees.
Three public appearances during the school year is, or is to be. the record of this organization. All fall we worked on a list of standard chorus pieces— Cowen’s Lady Bird, and the Bridal Chorus; Tcshe’s Star of Descending Sight; Verdi's Pilgrim Chorus and Gounod's immortal Praise Ye the Bather. The concert was given on the evening of December 18. with the assistance of Miss Murphy, the Brass Quartette, the Glee Club, the Octette, and Professor Movius, of Lincoln. Fine audience.
Next we studied the bright part songs and short opera selections in the Glee and Chorus Book, finishing the winter season in a chapel recital, March 18.
The Rose Maiden. Cowen’s exquisite cantata, is to be sung 011 the evening of May 27. with solo assistance from a distance.
A great chorus, continuing in regular bi-weekly rehearsals throughout the year, is something of an experiment at Peru, but, on the whole, one which has fairly justified itself as an enterprise deserving, and destined to receive, the support of the students and the public.
Professor House fathers this choral institution and. as its director, succeeds, perhaps as well as may be expected of any mere mortal, in attaining that balance of meekness and aggressiveness which students require and results demand.

TO MISS ANNA LYTICS
When first I saw thee, Anna dear,
I could not but adore;
A seraph from another sphere Could scarce have charmed me more.
Thy distance from me gives me pain, Though normal it may he;
Time and again I can o’erlook Thy eccentricity.
'1'he mid-point of my heart is thine, Thou hast its sections, too;
Thy chord of contact, keen and fine,
Is drawn transversely through.
Thou hast upon my memory traced A curve, by none destroyed.
A locus, ne’er to be erased;
It is the cardiod.
T would that some day tlfou and I Might yet be conjugate;
It is my greatest pleasure now To dream of such a fate.
Bert E. Swenson—“I never fully realized until lately what a great truth Mr. Burns had said when he said, it is better to have loved and flunked than never to have loved at all.’ ”
Sardius Ellenbergcr (in Phys. Lab.)—“Miss Brunsdon, you arc the prettiest girl with the shortest nose I ever saw.”
Workman (being questioned as to where he was going)—‘Tin going up to widen the doors in Professor Rouse’s new house. They’re too small since that baby was born.”
Professor Dclzell’s Typewriting Assistant Secretary—“Professor, this person has no address. Where shall I send this letter that it might reach him?”
Professor Delzell (noticing a sign which referred below to the word deceased) —“Search me; it’s doubtful.”
Miss McNamara (in Browning)—"Was Elise a flirt? Well, I should say not. If she had have been she would not have died.”
Chas. K. Morse—“Well, fellows, if my progress is as favorable in the future as it has been in the past I won’t have to board much longer.”
