Sigma Tau Delta
NATIONAL ENGLISH FRATERNITY
PHI Alpha Chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, National Professional English fraternity, was founded by Professor E. C. Beck at Peru State Teachers College May 24, 1926, with thirteen charter members.
Sigma Tau Delta has a threefold purpose: the mastery of written expression, encouragement of worth while reading, and the fostering of a spirit of fellowship among those who specialize in the English language and literature. The Greek letters forming the name of the fraternity symbolize the motto of the organization: Sincerity, Truth, Design.
The official publication of Sigma Tau Delta is known as the “Rectangle,” and original compositions by fraternity members are featured. Thus far this year, Phi Alpha chapter has been represented in the Rectangle by Mildred Graf, Joe Jones, and Charles Lindsay.
Phi Alpha chapter has adopted the official freshman medal of the fraternity. This medal is presented each year to the freshman writing the best composition for that year and constitutes one of the annual awards of the college.

HONOR STUDENT FRATERNITY
AN EXAMINATION of the 1928 Freshman enrollment revealed the fact that over twenty of the members of the class had received Nebraska Normal Board Scholarships from their respective high schools. These honor students organized to form the Alpha Erudito fraternity.
The primary purpose of the society is to create an incentive for high scholastic achievement. A secondary motive for the monthly meetings is found in the desire to meet a congenial group in a social way. One of the constant activities of the society is the writing of letters to high school seniors urging them to attend Peru State Teachers College.
This year’s officers have been: Margaret Cain, President; Edith Boatman, Corresponding Secretary; Ellen Zink, Vice-President; Margaret Meier, Recording Secretary; and George Cook, Treasurer. Miss Towne is the sponsor of the club.
