Come with me and be a student,
A student in old Peru,
When Autumn has decked our oak trees In colors of varied hue;
When squirrels in the branches arc playing And the acorns, so plentiful, too.
They arc taking into their houses T
To keep them the long winter through.
If you don't know the road, ask your agent.
He’ll tell you just what to do.
And where you will have to make changes Before ever you get to Peru.
And after a tiresome journey,
(No sleep the whole night through)
You hear the brakeman calling:
"The next station is Peru."
At last you've arrived and arc settled.
As you watch other students pass by.
And you meet with new friends, you wonder,
“Arc they as busy as I?" «p.
Up in the morning early, before the break of day.
You rise, and at seven-forty-five To class you wend your way.
After your class is Chapel;
You enter. What’s all this fuss?
It’s only the Seniors declaring.
"There’s nothing the matter with us."
The Juniors and Sophs, too, are yelling:
You wonder what they've got to say?
’Tis' something about "J-U" and "S-O-"
Perhaps you'll find out some day.

consider a few of them. First, there is the serious minded, cranky old maid, who has sacrificed a grouchy husband, a two-room cottage, and a life of thankless drudgery for her pedagogical career, of teaching others to be wise, and follow in her footsteps. Beside her skips the feather brained, fuzzy-headed little flirt, smiling at all the boys and breaking their foolish young hearts, from which, however, they promptly recover.
Our long, wiry, muscular basket-ball girl heaps honor on our fame, while the • brainy girl stays at home, neglects all else for her work, and invites a nervous
We have the girl who wears broad, low-heeled shoes, green hat and red dress when her classmates arc the girls of skinny skirts, high-heeled yellow boots, and gaudy stocking caps.
But the girl who makes her school life a benefit to herself and a pleasure to associates, is the “Mixer," who docs not neglect her studies and yet finds time to know her roommate, attend literary society, try out on the debating team, and take music lessons.
About one hundred girls live in that plain, cold, brick structure west of the school buildings, which is officially known as “Mt. Vernon Hall,” though more commonly called “Our Home.” Outsiders arc inclined to look with critical eye at this home, but, almost any girl, who has been permitted to dwell beneath that maternal roof will tell you frankly that she prefers it to any other place.
The average dormitory gets a semi-weekly letter from a distant town and wears that significant circlet of gold, though there are some of sad countenance, long face and empty heart, and a very few of the fain, frivolous and gay.
An occasional young man shrinkingly finds his way up those broad steps, through the spacious ball, and to the door of a certain southeast room with a “Comp” for some fair one, who most likely, has to use his flowers and candy in bribing the girls from home to keep still.
Such are the many kinds of girls who come to Peru during the summer and winter. Though they find it a pretty place in our warm season, it is most beautiful now, when there is something sublime, majestic and awe-inspiring in its snow terraces; something enthusing in the frosty air; something invigoring in the uphill climb and something inspiring in every study.
We arc all proud of Peru, and the greatest thing that we can do is to make Peru proud of us; as athletes, as students, and as future members of the Alumni.

'Tis Friday; the week’s toil is ended;
You’d think some recreation fine.
Just go to Everett or Philo—
I’m sure you will have a good time.
On Sunday afternoons, are you lonely?
Do you wish your home friends near? There’s the Christian Associations—
You're always welcome there.
Then, of course, there are athletics;
If you can’t be a shining light You can at least stay on the side lines And cheer those engaged in the fight;
Do you delight in class-spirit?
You'll never find it tame—
The Normal School Olympics Or the Inter-Class Basket-ball games.
I,o, here comes the Spring, and all Nature Is clothed in her garments of green.
And the buttercups and daisies Among the grasses are seen.
Hark! Do you hear that sweet music Which comes floating on the air?
'Tis the time of our May Festival;
Come drive away dull care.
These arc but few of the pleasures We enjoy here in old Peru.
Where nature herself smiles upon us In splendor the whole year through.
Now, won't you come and with us Have a share in these good times, too? Yes, come and be a student.
A student in old Peru.
