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.

Tlie class of 1912 docs not boast, as many classes'have, that it began down in the model school, but rather, is proud to say that it began in the Normal proper.
In September, 1908, a year was added to the Normal course, 'rite eighth grade became a ninth grade, the first year class a tenth grade, and the second year class a Sophomore class, leaving no Freshman class. After registration
it was found that twenty-five young people had come to Peru with the required number of credits for the new class.
All of these students, except Miss Applegate, whose picture is on the opposite page, have left the class, and Miss Culbertson is no longer advisor. However, two things remain unchanged—the class colors, lavendar and white; and the class spirit expressed in the last words of an old yell:
“All together, all together,
That’s the way we pull.”

In September of 1909 the class, although composed mostly of new members, reached an enrollment of thirty. This was not as many as might have been wished, yet the class was never ashamed of its:
The volume of this yell certainly showed a determination to surpass every class in the Normal.
Miss Grace Culbertson was again advisor and her praises were sung at all times by the Sophomores but more than ever after one of their famous parties.
Only seven of this group struggled on through the two remaining years to graduate in 1912.
Miss Rowena Branaman may still be seen straying leisurely over the campus. She says, “O golly, Mr. Thacker isn’t the only one who likes music.”
Miss Burch is the modest little girl who expresses the thoughts, not through the piano, but the typewriter, and is known as “Professor Dclzcll’s right-hand man.”
For only a part of this year, Miss Applegate was in Peru. There were two girls, Miss Hazen and Miss Fowler, who kept so quiet one hardly knew of their presence.
During her first year as reporter, and the last as secretary, Miss Sharp has carefully recorded the class achievements and has not omitted the business of mid-week Chapel. '
Mr. Shaver has excelled in athletics and wears three stripes as a football man. His ability on the stage is too well known to need mention here.
