AT THE beginning of the year, Coach Lindsay found only seven students in--ta. terested in forensics. That group, however, included a number of veterans from previous Peru squads: and, under the very efficient direction of Mr. Lindsay, the debaters enjoyed a schedule of thirteen debates.
The Negative team, captained by President Leonard, included Chatelain, Martin, and Knight. The Affirmatives, in addition to Captain Gaines, numbered Catlett, and Nickel.
The season started on January 20, when the Negative team met Dana College at Blair. The Lutherans journeyed to Peru later to meet the Affirmative in a return debate. Other dual debates were with Kearney, Cotner, and Wesleyan. In debating with the Methodists, judges decisions were rendered and Peru dropped both debates by 2 to 1 votes. Brookings, South Dakota, introduced something new by requesting a two-man team and they were met by Leonard and Gaines on the home floor in a no-decision debate.
For the first time in the history of Peru forensics, the debate squad was allowed to take an out-of-state trip. Coach Lindsay, Martin, Nickel. Leonard, and Gaines traveled to South Dakota to meet: East State Teachers College
at Madison, Dakota Wesleyan at Mitchell, and Brookings State University at Brookings. This tour was a fitting climax for an interesting and difficult debate schedule.

THE girls of the Home Economics Department, at the Peru State Teachers College, organized the Emoh Scimonoce Club in February, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, to promote better fellowship and interest among those specializing in the department.
Through their organization the girls hope to have an opportunity to become acquainted with some of the frontier thinkers in their field. The club will soon become affiliated with the State and National Home Economics fraternity.
One of the outstanding accomplishments for which the members are working is the establishment and carrying out of a Student Loan Fund for girls specializing in Home Economics.
The membership of the club at present totals twenty-three. Miss Kathryn Towne, head of the department, and Mrs. T. E. Ennis, assistant in the department, have been influential in the organization and their interest is keenly felt by the club.
