(Uu' JFmithall itejrtUin The annual football reception of this year far surpassed anything that has ever been given in the way of paying tribute to the boys who win fame for us on the gridiron. The entertainment the earlier part of the evening consisted of mimic athletic stunts, boxing and prize fighting, and was given on the first floor of the Library. At promptly 8:30, all the guests, headed by President and Mrs. Hayes, Dr. and Mrs. Shcllhorn, marched to the gymnasium, where twelve young ladies ushered them to their places. During their entrance and the entire evening, the Normal Orchestra rendered some beautiful selections. The gymnasium had so been transformed that it no longer seemed the same place. Over the entrance, as well as all around the gymnasium, was a wonderful array of pennants. The rugs on the floor, beautiful potted plants, and convenient arrangement of chairs, gave it cpiite a home-like appearance. The honored guests were seated at the cast end of the hall during the rest of the evening. The following three-course menu was served: Salad a la Peru Salted Wafers Olives Brick lee Cream Cake Salted Nuts Coffee Dr. B. L. Shcllhorn, "The Kick Off"—Into the vale of years. Harley Shaver, "Touch Back"—He served with glory and admired success. Daisy D. Ncttlcton, "Our Boys"—Brave conquerors—for so you arc. Basil Sims, "Forward Pass”—Best of all amongst the rarest of good ones. D. W. Hayes, “The Final Score’’—A clean fire, a clean hearth and the rigor of the game. R. W. Thacker, "The Parade"—"Let the trumpets blow, that this great soldier may his welcome know." altp Junior (Class -party Juniors begin their year’s work with one disadvantage:—they are strangers. Yet the class of ’13 will certainly part at the close of these two semesters as true and lasting friends, having been united into one strong and loyal union by various intrigues and rivalries. None of us can forget the feeling of pride with which we entered the Library basement on the memorable November evening when we first became acquainted with our co-workers. How vivid is the memory of those apartments, transformed from staid and sober class rooms into one huge, attractive entertainment hall, resplendent in the glow of golden, brownish light and in perfect harmony with the gold and brown decorations. Longings for home were soon forgotten amid jovial laughter and friendly games that made everyone feel that his classmates were well worth knowing. The kidnapping of a young Junior threatened to break up the party, but his timely rescue by brave classmen only served to make the remainder of the evening less formal and more enjoyable. Refreshments, dainty and delicious, of cake and ice cream in the charming class colors, were served. The students reluctantly parted, not strangers as they had come, but as true Juniors knowing that they have a noble class and willing to put forth every effort to win and make school worth while.

®lje $aluj Blrnw It lias been thought best to give up two pages of The Peruvian to the pictures of some of the Seniors as they were many years ago. The little lad with bis father is Willie. His hair is red but it doesn’t show there and being adviser of the Senior class has almost turned it gray. He was born in a log cabin— away back in Indianny—in the fall of the same year the Peru State Normal began business. Arthur, the present editor-in-chief, was born in Wahoo. He refuses to tell when, but from his looks one would judge that it was about May 30. 1889. Mae is an associate editor. She says she was born in a depot. September 16. 1891. Roy is The Peruvian artist and is still making faces. (irace is another of the associate editors. She was born at Strang, had this picture taken in Geneva, and now lives in Peru. The dark-haired Grace was a short, chubby little girl. She is now a tall, serious Senior, fond of domestic science, and desiring very much to try life on a homestead. Sharkey certainly was a sturdy boy. He admires caps and gowns because "They give one dignity.” But he is the funny editor. Margaret and her brother are just as big comrades today as thev were long ago. She is a Wahoo girl This picture is worth a thousand dollars to Karl and his mamma. He now holds the position of business manager of The Peruvian and is even entrusted with the keeping of a chapel record. Edith's home is at Dunbar. This was the one occasion in her life when she was cross. Baby Anna appears with her little brother. She is from Plattsmouth. Maud has traveled much in eastern Nebraska, having been born at Salem, lived in Filley, and having a temporary home in Peru. Alta, when three months old, was large and chubby; now she is small, and prim, and proud—of York, her home. May’s home is at Norfolk. Her dark hair and snappy eyes tell of her strong determination to succeed. Mabel is careful and serious. One critic teacher says, ‘‘You smile altogether too much;” another, "You arc altogether to serious in your class room.” Rising City is her home. Sarah has grown much larger. Although one seldom hears her sing, a hunting song, “The Case,” is her favorite. Sanford has never gotten over his shyness and leap year has only made it more pronounced. One hundred foily-nluc
