Jack Doininik Kantor Hugo Bohncr Jerry Dolczal The Normal Catholic Association during the past year has enjoyed the privilege of hearing Mass regularly at Mrs. Jacks. On the intervening Sundays, meetings were held in our rest-room. The study of the lives of saints, current Catholic history, and other appropriate topics were taken up at these meetings. Notwithstanding the fact that our membership was limited and we had no adviser, the work of the association was carried on enthusiastically, and all derived much benefit. One hundred leu

Jean Treasurer, Noel Tyson, ’13 The most important sources of the Association’s power are its social features and the Sunday afternoon meetings. The former, by bringing- the men into personal contact with one another, aids the new students in becoming acquainted and causes them to feel at home; the latter, by constantly keeping before them the Christian ideals that they have been accustomed to in their home life, strengthens and inspires them at the times when a guiding influence is sorely needed to aid them in resisting the temptations of college life. At the beginning of the school year, Y. M. C. A. representatives meet the trains to welcome the new men and to aid them in finding suitable rooms and boarding places. The association carries this work a step farther by giving a public reception for new students during the first week of school, jointly with the other Christian associations. Then, a little later, comes the Y. M. C. A. Stag Social, an event that does a great deal towards helping the young men to become acquainted, and getting them into line for active Association work. The Y. M. C. A. Bible Study work is carried on in the three churches of Peru, there being one class in each church. Each of these classes has studied, this year, some phase of the life of Christ. A very large per cent of the men in school has been enrolled in the work. During the first semester, a Mission Study class was organized, under the leadership of Professor B. C. Hendricks. The .book studied was Strong’s “Challenge of the City.” The course was very interesting, and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who took part. During the study of this book, the class undertook some original work in cistern and well investigation in Peru. Blanks were prepared and the greater part of the town was canvassed. From the data thus compiled some very startling facts were secured concerning the sanitary conditions of wells and cisterns in Peru. The Association-hopes to use these facts to good advantage in the near future. During the second semester, the class took up the study of “The Decisive Hour of Christian Missions,” by John R. Mott. The year 1911-12 has indeed been a prosperous one for the Y. M. C. A., but it is hoped and believed by the loyal members that the year 1912-13 will show a greater growth than any previous year in the history of the Association. One hundred nine

Person Beulah Rader Rachel Rader Carrie Sherwood Susy M. Smith Cecil Thornton Under the leadership of Miss Rader, the members of the Episcopal Church and friends interested in it met November 19, 1911, for regular Church services. The purpose of the Guild is to provide the Episcopal form of worship for those who desire it, and to secure its permanency at the Normal through the interest and loyalty of its members. Bishop Williams of the diocese authorized the order of service and appointed Miss Rader and Miss Mason to alternate in reading it. For study, “The Prayer Book Reason Why,” and “Reasons for Being a Churchman,” were selected. The services arc held each Sunday morning in the old Y. W. C. A. rest room, which President Hayes kindly gave for this purpose. On December 7, Rev. Wesley Barnes of St. Mary’s Church, Nebraska City, conducted evening prayer, and early on the following morning administered Holy Communion. The Guild anticipates a visitation from the Bishop sometime before the close of school. One hundred eleven
