M. ENNIS BOYER
Ennis is a modest little dormitory maiden. She comes from Valentine High School, which is only added proof of the fame of Peru. She “counts that day lost whose low descending sun views from her hand no worthy action done.” She is as faithful as the 0:30 hell, hut takes life too seriously.
CLIO I). WONDER Y. W. C. A.; Philomathcan; Athletic Association; German Club; Latin Club The Wonder of the class sailed in from Blue Springs about two years ago. She lifted up her eyes and saw the Normal built upon a hill and saw that it was good, so she pitched her tent on the hill and prepared to enjoy college life. She is a debater and will hold her own in any domestic squabble. Aside from being a Wonder, she has inherited the name of one of the muses. It will he hard to convince her that she ought to change her name.

HARRISON M.‘ BERKEY Everett; Treas. Y. M. C. A.
Mr. Berkey is a mighty man, although his appearance would not indicate any such characteristic. He takes a deep interest in styles for women, and this spring in particular he favors the small “Eaton.” He is very timid and inclined to blush if spoken to very suddenly. He hopes to some day be a real Senator. He has attended the Normal for two years, and has taught near his home town, Davenport, Nebr., one year.
W. C. HARPSTER Everett; Orchestra; Mandolin Club W. C. Harpstcr is from Ncligh and is one of those modest young fellows about whom one dare not say too much.

ARTHUR L. KLIM A Everett; Y. M. C. A.; Band Arthur is one of those boys who doesn't say much, but gets there just the same. He has been here two years and has taught two years.

ANNA SCHMIDT Everett; German Club; N. C. A.
Miss Schmidt is a Nebraska City girl and has taken three years' work at Peru. She has been a successful teacher for several years, and has a pleasing schoolroom personality. Her word is law when she speaks, and though firm, she is kind and would inspire any grade of pupils to do better work for having been under her influence.
BERT E. SWENSON President Promoters’ Club; Everett; Football Captain; Debates; President Senior Class 'oo; Junior Year; Basket-Ball; Peruvian Staff Bert, or “The big Swede,” as he is very respectfully called, is a very modest young fellow and perhaps it would not do to say too much concerning him. He walked in here one shiny day from Shicklcv and began to rub off a few of the green spots. This process continued until he has become one of the most successful athletes, teachers and all around heart-breakers in the Normal. In other words, don't ask me to tell you of him as words arc inadequate. He speaks for himself and you know him as well as I. Success is always his, and bis unimpeachable character yields an influence upon his varied associates which only their lives can measure.
