(£ct«ii (Cmutty (Club The present Cass County Club was formally organized on October 26. 1914. The enthusiastic spirit of the Club was evidenced by the fact that almost before the Club officers were elected at the first meeting a “get-together” picnic was mentioned and the suggestion was heartily endorsed by everyone present. Since the Club is largely composed of “live wires.” no time was wasted, but arrangements were quickly completed, and the picnic was held in Neal’s pasture the first- week in November. In fact, the plans were made so hastily that notification of the weather man was entirely forgotten and the evening could hardly be called balmy. However, a rousing bonfire soon dispelled the gathering gloom and the supper provided by the capable committee was the only other thing required to complete the enjoyment of the evening. Gathered round the blazing fire, provided with the customary sizzling wienies and steaming coffee, the various members told stories until suddenly, through all the cheer, came the realization that a snow storm was coming uninvited, and the home-going was rather unceremonious. However, memories of the fun still linger, and the evening will be remembered by all who were there as one of the jolliest of the year. The Club now numbers twenty-eight members. Since Cass County sends new representatives to Peru each year, the places of this year's Seniors will be more than filled next September. Boasting three such Faculty members as it does, the Cass County Club will doubtless become a regular school institution. and in the future the original members may say with pardonable pride, "The big Peru Cass County Club? Oh. yes. I helped start that away back in One hundred ecventy-ntne

T. J. MAJORS ©ur Jffrfeni) The first legislature of Nebraska consisted of men chosen for their sterling worth and character. Many of them were men who had served in the Civil War. None of these, however, had a more brilliant record than the young Colonel Thomas J. Majors, who, as a member of the first senate, secured the establishment of the first State Normal of Nebraska. He, as a member of the Hoard of Education, voted for the selection of Kearney as the site of the second State Normal: he was a member of the legislature which created the third and fourth Nebraska State Normals, located at Chadron and Wayne. Gratifying appropriations for the maintenance of these four State Normals have been secured, largely through the untiring efforts of this indomitable worker. As a member of the legislature of 1909 he obtained the appropriation for our magnificent Administration Building. Directly or indirectly, he has been largely responsible in securing the appropriations for the splendid buildings now on the campus, all valued at nearly a half million dollars. While lie was a member of the Board of Education, from 1902 to 1907. Peru began to take its place with the great Normal Schools of the Nation, and has grown into the “Greater Peru" of today. Mr. Majors has seen the Peru Normal grow from a school of 65 students, enrolled the first year, to 1,315 students, enrolled in 1914-1 )15: from two graduates in 1870. to 202. in 1915; he has seen 2.296 graduates receive their diplomas. The Board of Education voted to name the new $100,000 Training Building. now being erected. "The T. J. Majors Training Building.” in honor of, and in expression of the deep appreciation of the forty-eight years of unselfish service and devotion to Peru and the “Normal School Idea.” One hundred scvcnty-ctylil
