 PERU PEDAGOGIAN Vol. XXIV Peru State Teachers College No. I. NEW RECORD EOR 1928 REGISTRATION FIRST MIXER RATES HIGH "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 NEW DORMITORY 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. PEP CLUB INTRODUCED 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. THREE ONE-ACTS EVERETTS CHOICE 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.

Loveless, assistant director of Men’s Physical Education, died suddenly Monday night, October 22, in the Methodist Hospital at Des Moines, Iowa.

Mr. Loveless has been here since April 5, and was highly regarded by the faculty and student tody, lie was instructor in Physical Education and coach of bosket ball in the College. as well as director of the Physical Education program in the Training School. BLIND PIANIST 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- Exroixmbnt Exceeds Previous Year’s Attendance 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. BEING LATE 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. It is not advisable to wait until class gift funds accumulate before this step is taken. We need it now. ing of an amateur musician atout Miss Martin’s masterful playing. Besides appearing at the regular convocation, she appeared for a short recital at the dormitory luncheon following convocation. Page I SI

 PERU PEDAGOGIAN Vol. XXIV Pern State Teachers College No. 2. NATIONAL FRATS ORGANIZED PI GAMMA MU CHAPTER GRANTED Through the effortsof Charles Lindsay, professor of history, Peru has been granted a chapter of Pi Gamma Mu, the national Social Science fraternity. A letter dated February 25, from Dean Eeroy Allen, national president, to Mr. Lindsay reads, “1 wish to say that your application for a Pi Gamma Mu chapter is in good form and has been accepted.” MONOPOLIZING STUDENT’S TIME Some teachers have wonderful ideas as to the amount of work a student can do in their classes. In a way it may look right—but in other ways it looks as though the teacher may l e inclined to Ik: selfish. Many students have registered for two-hour courses and attend class four times a week for the entire semester. When the case is like this the teacher is not entitled to outside work from the students. Hut as the case is, the teacher often has a large reading list, requires a noteliook, then assigns about twice as much as the ordinary student can do in class time. And then, after all the assignments are made, proceeds to lecture to the class the rest of the period: and tell them how the lesson should be prepared, or discuss what has been done in the class the preceding year or period. Monopoly of time can result in no good to the students. Students l»ccomc overworked in one class and get behind in another. The time must come before many years when the teachers of the school must outline their work; keeping it within the time allotted for the average student. AT TEN-TIIIRTY They strolled thru the Campus at ten fifteen, 'Twas almost the parting hour; And the moon rose o’er the city, Behind the Second Church tower. And far in the hazy distance Of the lovely night in June, The blaze of the shining Dorm lights, Gleamed redder than the moon. And as they draw near to the Dorm, In the shadows of the hall They see the Dean is waiting, The lingering girls to call. They stop and | ausc in the doorway, And tho 'tis in plain sight He plants a kiss on her lovely cheek, Before they part that night. How often, oh how often, I n the days that had gone by, Had he left the Dorm with a throbbing heart, And heaved a lonesome sigh. And whenever 1 cross the Campus With its trees and buildings dear, Like the fragrant odor of springtime, Comes the thot of each college year. And I think how many others Of love-encumbered men, Each leaving his girl at ten-thirty. Have crossed the Campus since then. The l oys have to leave too early It's a crime, it’s a shame, it's a sin, For the beauty of night is just waking, When the Dorm girls have to go in. DELTA ALPHA PI NATIONALIZED Delta Alpha Pi, the local education fraternity, received word near the end of the third quarter that they had been accepted as a chapter of the national educational fraternity, Kappa Delta Pi. The local organization has worked for a long time to gain recognition by this national fraternity and this announcement is the culmination of a visit made on this campus by Dr. Hall-Quest of Columbia University. PHILOS VOTE FUND FOR BELL SYSTEM At the regular meeting of the Philomathean Literary Society Thursday, March 14, it was decided to use the money from the Liberty Bond which was liought by the Philos in 1928 to complete the fund for a bell system at Peru State Teachers College. The feeling has long existed at the college that a bell system is a much-needed improvement and would l c a decided asset to the campus equipment. STRONG 11 KA RT ENTERTAINS STUDENTS Chief Stronghcart of the Yakima Indian Reservation in Washington State, appeared at the college Auditorium, Saturday, March 16, at 8 p. m., when he addressed the audience on the subject “From Peace Pipe to War Trail.” In this platform appearance, Chief Stronghcart appeared in the picturesque costume of the Yakima Indian tribe. During his appearance lie explained several of the Indian customs, among which the different parts of his costume. Chief Stronghcart is an experienced speaker and this experience comes not only from his years of platform work, but also from his many appearances before committees on Indian affairs in Washington. t Page 181
