“Roosevelt may get the nomination, but I would not give that boy for the nomination of both parties and the assurance of an election,” was the remark made by the subject of this sktcch as his little son, James, came running up to him. Such characterizes this big-hearted alumnus. His love and devotion to his children, his wife and mother, come from the same heart that has led him to do more for his Alma Mater through our association than many of his fellow alumni know of.
It is lie who has made the Alumni Association felt at the various tcachcts’ associations. It is he who has gathered and systematized the data now accessible in the Alumni office. It is lie who has not only kept in existence but lias built the Alumni Teachers’ Bureau into a power felt in every part of the state. Yet all this has been done as an aside from his work as head of a department in the Normal, without pay or remuneration except the sense of duty done and the grateful appreciation of those helped.
May his kindly smile long continue to cheer those of us who arc less optimistic. May his good judgment be given many years of activity as our bureau chief. On the other hand, may his fellow Alumni in no way stint their expressions of appreciation lor his labors that have been so generously bestowed upon our Association work.

It was a combination of push, loyalty and appreciation of Alumni needs that led C. M. Penney-,
07, and C. V. Williams, 02, together with a number of other interested Alumni of Lincoln to organize the Lincoln Peru Club. Miss Mabel Bridges, ’02, its first president, combined the charm of her personality, the grace of her sex and the tact of her profession in making the first year of its existence not only meet those needs but a potent factor in the University's and the City's social life.
Succeeding presidents, Miss Myrtle Ilictt, ’09, Miss Mayme Jackson, ’03, and Mr. William McConnell, have loyally accepted the heritage thus passed to them by its first executive and contributing, each his peculiar personal factor, have given Alumni, homesick for the Peru spirit, that for which their souls longed. From its first meeting in the autumn of 1909 to its last, it has ever been the comment of those who attended, “It was just like the old times to be there.”
