IION. T. J. MAJORS
IION. WM. DAILY
Jfuwn ittg nf the Normal
In the first session of the legislature of Nebraska in 1867, through the suggestion of the Nemaha County delegation, Honorable A. B. Fuller of Ashland, Saunders County, Nebraska, drafted the bill for the location of a State Normal school at Peru, Nebraska. At that time Honorable T. J. Majors was state senator, and Honorable Wm. Daily was a member of the house of representatives. These two gentlemen were instructed by the action of the trustees of the Methodist Academy to turn over to the State of Nebraska the land and the building belonging to the church, providing the State would locate and maintain the State University at Peru. The legislature thought it wise to have the State University located near the State Capitol. Through the bill introduced by Mr. Fuller, a substitute offer of the State Normal was made, which was accepted by the trustees. Peru owes the establishment of her State Normal to the two Honorable gentlemen—Majors and Daily—through whose efforts the State Normal was established and funds provided for its maintenance. These two gentlemen have always been loyal to this institution. The administration building stands as a lasting monument to Mr. Majors, through whose efforts as state senator in 1908. we secured this magnificent building.

O’er the distant lulls, a purple haze;
On neighboring heights, there’s a riotous maze Of tints and shades, gold, red and brown,
Right nobly each wears her resplendent crown.
Each apple tree daily more lowly bends.
The sluggish Missouri more slowly wends,
For Autumn herself has come to woo,
And claims as her own, our old Peru.
Wide stretches of snow in surrounding hills,
The trees are frosted miracles,
For Nature, in fantastic whim.
Hangs diamond pendants from every limb,
The river’s a ribbon of silvery white,
Gleaming afar in the brilliant light.
The brown earth’s blanketed, hidden from view.
In the winter time, at old Peru.
Awakening life in trees and flowers.
Orchards, pink blossomed, are fairy bowers.
Come, one by one, the dreamy days,
To bring new beauty to the woodland ways.
The insistent note of the whippoorwill.
Calls forth an answer, from every hill,
The whole glad earth seems created anew,
By the breath of Spring, in old Peru.

This is the first year of the Newman House administration in Peru.
None of us will fail to remember our getting-accjuaintcd spread held at midnight in a vacant room on third floor, nor the toasts, pantomimes and turkey parades that followed. After this informal introduction, no one felt himself to be a stranger and fast friendship soon sprang up among us.
The Hollowc’en pranks engaged in were a source of merriment to all with the exception of a few who did not sleep so comfortably that night as they usually did.
In November the first floor girls entertained the others at a Kensington followed by one of those feasts that all school girls enjoy.
The chafing dish parties, as well as the birthday parties, occupied no small place among our good times. Sometimes, however, whole pans of delicious mixtures were ruined and in several instances upset on the carpets.
By having our many school duties interspersed with such pleasant occasions. we have enjoyed this year very much and shall often recall each incident connected with the time spent in Peru in 1911-12.
