Class Colors—Cherry and White
The Junior Class of 1908-’09 has the distinction of being the largest class ever enrolled in the Peru State Normal School, having a registration of about two hundred members.
The school year has been one of unusual success for the class from every point of view. The Juniors have figured prominently in all the varied lines of school activities; in athletics and debating, as well as in the many student organizations.
We, as Juniors, feel that much of the credit is due to Miss Ellis, who has acted as our Class Advisor for the past two years, and who has won the admiration and respect of each Junior by her faithful and enthusiastic efforts.
The first class meeting was held for the purpose of class organization and the following officers were elected:
C. Gordon Beck............................................President
Neva M. P est.............................................Secretary
Roy Lee ..................................................Treasurer
Those of the Juniors who won places in the preliminary debates arc Maymc Giltner and Varro E. Tyler.
An examination of the records of the two flourishing literary societies shows that the Juniors have supplied their share of members, who have proved themselves worthy of the honors which they have received. Among these are George E. Campbell, president of the Philomathean Society; A. C. Kuenning, vice-president: Lcola France, recording secretary; Harold G. Lanphcre, trustee. In the Everett Society, Carrie Hansen, secretary; Rolla Fosnot. treasurer: Neva M. Rest, trustee; Olive Petrashek, sergeant-at-arms.
The debating societies have also received the generous support of the Juniors. Lena Freidav being president of the Athenian Society; Belle Gabus. secretary: Carrie Hansen, sergeant-at-arms.
On the staft of the "Xormalite” will be found: Neva M. Rest, society editor: Webster Ray, athletic: Clarcv Nielsen, military: H. G. Lanphcre. assistant manager.

The social life of the class of 1910 during its Junior year will be a source of pleasant memories for each member of the class.
An invitation was given to the new students of the class by the old students to meet in the Gymnasium, and on September 30. 1908. the new students went bravely forth to meet their “wiser and more experienced” classmates.
In the evening of October 31 the Juniors gathered in Everett and Philo-mathean halls for a Hallowe’en frolic.
On the morning of February 3, 1909, the Juniors met in the Gymnasium preparatory to marching into chapel. The entertainment consisted of a representation of the faculty by members of the Junior class. While the “faculty members” were taking their usual place on the rostrum the class as a whole, carrying the 1910 pennants, was led in a march by Miss Alice Lintz. While marching the class joined in singing a march song, “Juniors’ Day.” After taking their seats the several yells selected for the occasion were given. Professor Mouse (Mr. Lanphcrc) had his usual difficulty in announcing the opening song. Rev. I-Iussong (Mr. Wrightsman) read a few appropriate selections from Emerson and then gave an excellent address to the Seniors. The second song was very pretty and appropriate, followed by a very solemn “Amen” by some of the musical Seniors. The “announcements” were read bv President Crabtree, impersonated by Mr. McDowell. Announcements were given in person by Professors Dclzcll, Searson and Duncanson, represented by Messrs. J. Schott, Ray, and Ellcnbcrger, respectively. Mr. Overholt (Mr. Garey) called for the chapel records to be passed and explained some slight change that had been made in the same.
Superintendent Burgemeir of the metropolis of Barney, one of the leading educators of the state, no other than the president. C. G. P»eck, was present at the chapel exercises. “Although he had not consented to favor the students with a talk, and though coming perfectly unexpected,” he favored the assembly with a very appropriate and polished address.
The program as a whole was a great success, much of which was due to Miss Ellcnbcrger, who acted in Miss Murphy’s capacity. Junior Day closed with the following jingle:
Here’s to all the profs,
Drink it down, drink it down!
Here’s to all the profs.
Drink it down, drink it down!
Though we roast them in our mirth.
Well we know how much they’re worth,
They’re the salt of all the earth,
Drink it down, down, down!
Did not our Junior baseball girls, after playing with the Sophomores for a few short innings, easily walk away with the Interclass indoor baseball pennant ?
Our boys? You ask. Yes, they won that game of basket-ball from the combined other classes, their worthy opponents expiring before “time up.”
In the college football squads the heaviest positions were held by Junior
