Vol. XXIV Peru State Teachers College No. I.
NEW RECORD EOR 1928 REGISTRATION
"Get-acquainted" was the spirit of the College Mixer held Saturday evening on the cam pus and athletic field. It is an old custom to hold an affair of this type each fall, as it seems to prove very successful in enlarging students "speaking" and "da t i ng ” acq un i n t a nces.
After getting acquainted at the gymnasium, the crowd proceeded to the athletic field. Mere the freshmen were introduced to a few of the outstanding events of the college pro-gra m.convocat ion, foot hall,a nd orchestra practice.
From all appearances, Saturday night’s mixer assisted a great deal in helping to make campus friends.
PERU TO HAVE
For several years it has been the fond hopes of Peruvians that Peru would someday have a new girls’ dormitory. Now the news comes that Peru shall have a new SlOO.OOOdormitory. The location of the new structure will lie as an addition to the present building in the form of a wing on the north.
The Pep Club, a new organization on the campus, held its first meeting Wednesday afternoon, Octol)er 17, in the gymnasium. Dick Williams, head of the organization, gave a short talk on pep, and what it should mean to a Pep Club. The girls are going to show a lot of spirit at the rest of the games. There were forty girls, members of the club.
The Everetts held a meeting Thursday at 8 o’clock in i the Little Theatre.
Miss Burton, the adviser, gave a report of the committee on the Everett play. It was decided by vote to nave three one-act plays rather than just one play.

GIVES PROGRAM Peru students and citizens had the privilege of attending a musical program given by Miss Helen May Martin, the world’s only blind and deaf pianist, at the college auditorium Wednesday, September 26.
Miss Martin became interested in music quite early and was sent to a school for the deaf where her talents were soon realized. There was noth-
Registration is now virtually complete anti the results should l e gratifying to everyone who is interested in P. S. T. C. The total enrollment at present writing is five hundred eight. This is quite a substantial increase over former years, showing that the gains in enrollment for the past few years are quite consistent.
The present total enrollment, for this time of year, is the largest ever in the history of the college. If the enrollment increases as it did last year, the number should reach the six-hundred mark by the end of the year.
No little amount of grief is caused on the campus of this college, both to instructors and students, by having students come late to classes. There is always talk about if from and about the campus. Laxity of punctuality in this school in particular is conducive to laxity of punctuality in the many schools served by the graduates of this one.
An accurate system of clocks and tolls would do away with practically all lateness to classes, caused by variously regulated timepieces, and the holding of classes overtime.
