The Saturday evening following registration was a time of great enjoyment for both faculty and students, for it was on this evening that Y. W. C. A., Y. M. C. A., and N. C. A., showed what rare ability they have in making people feel at home and in getting acquainted. The reception was held in the gymnasium, which was beautifully decorated with oak leaves. To the right of the entrance stood the receiving line, which started the work of getting the new comer introduced, as well as renewing friendship with the old student. In such a throng it took but a little while to feel at home.
During the course of the evening, vocal, piano and cornet solos were given and refreshments were served from a daintily decorated booth on the east side of the gymnasium.
Late in the evening, the reception ended; as the old student walked home lie felt that coming back was well worth while; and the new student felt that surely breaking home ties is nothing if one can meet such friends in his school career.
March 13 marks a memorable event in the life of all students at Peru during the year 1911-12. It was on this day that the long-looked for and heard of Governor Aldrich came.
Preparations had been in progress since it was first announced that he was to be Peru’s honored guest, so when the good news of his coming reached us, we were practically ready for it.
The reception was held in the Adminstration building, which was decorated in the Normal colors. 'Hie receiving line, stationed in the Faculty Reception Room, consisted of the President and Advisor of each class, President Hayes and wife, the chief executive. Governor Aldrich, and Dr. and Mrs. Shellhorn. Each class came in a body, the Senior class leading. After formal introductions, the classes passed up to the second floor, where further pleasure awaited them. The typewriting room was converted into a beautiful serving room; pennants were arranged on the walls artistically.
Here punch and wafers were served throughout the evening. A great deal of the pleasure was also due to the beautiful music given by the Normal Orchestra and by the Glee Club.
While many did not get a chance to sec the Governor that evening, few missed the chance of seeing and hearing him the following morning, when he addressed the students in chapel.
Greater pleasure could not be given than that of meeting the Governor while in school life, and such was certainly the feeling of all who were present on that occasion.

For just one evening, November 25, tlic Kindergarten room was changed from the Trainer’s building to one of the rooms in the Adminstration building. Truly this room scemel like fairyland to all the kindergarteners who began to arrive at 7:30 and looked with great admiration at the wonderful pictures of birds and animals, the paper chains, and the drawings with which the room was gorgeously decorated.
Persons, you should have known, were bedecked in garbs of every hue and almost every size; the dignity so natural (?) to the worthy Sophomores was cast aside and they entered into the spirit of the farce. An onlooker would have thought that their diplomas should be granted fourteen years from now instead of only two.
Much relaxation was afforded by the childish games of “Button, Button,” ‘Blind Man’s Buff” and “Cat and Mouse.” In this last the class adviser proved co be quite agile.
Extremely appropriate, too, were the palatable refreshments, consisting of milk and animal crackers.
This party, as well as all of the other social affairs, has been very interesting, due to the fact that they have the ability to originate ideas and then, by co-operation, put them in action.
Although it is usually thought that children going to the Kindergarten have little memorizing ability, this class showed its intellectual power by breaking up the party that evening with

At the beginning of the school year of 1911, there came to fill the ranks of those who had passed on, groups of unorganized individuals bent on seeking knowledge and, incidentally, pleasure. This class, known as the Freshmen, displayed the latter talent to good advantage one evening late in October, at which time a “getting acquainted” party was given.
Members of the class had been told to come in groups, representing some certain class of people, and this part of the evening’s entertainment was well carried out, both in costume and acts. The best one was thc“Westerners," who came in true cowboy and cowgirl attire and showed some parts of the hazardous life which they lead. Almost equally interesting were the lords, negroes, and sailors.
A short period before the serving of delicious refreshments was spent in playing games and guessing riddles, the former making a good climax in the evening’s entertainment.
“A good beginning makes a good ending” and hope that no adverse circumstances will assail our worthy aspirants in their quest of knowledge as well as occasional good times.
