Vol. XXIV Peru State Teachers College No. 3
CHADRON EAGLES ELIMINATED, 13-0
SPIRIT OF HOME-COMING IS HIGH
The whole thing was a glorious business—one of the finest of home-comings. Every single bit of decoration, every hearty handshake with a returning grab, each small touch of whatnot, blended to make the whole harmonious; and everyone of those raindrops that fell Indore tried its l cst to put a damper on it all—and it couldn’t l c done!
No one can question the real, true—Peru spirit!—that was so predominant. It’s all over now, that’s true: but won’t we have another fine one next year? Aye, every inch a homecoming.
One of the most-discussed problems on the campus for some time has been the Point System, designed to bring about distribution of extracurricular activities more equally among students.
The administration of the system isto l c in student hands. We feel that this system is a wise move, since conditions in the field do seem to lx: a bit off balance; and we believe that, in the competent hands into which it is placed, a fair administration will be worked out.
Beginning Sunday, December 9, the Peru jxjstofiicc will be open to the public for the receipt and dispatch of mail.
T h e m ovement w h i c h brought about this result was sponsored by the roomers at the W. F. Hoyt house. It was through their constant efforts that petitions were circulated.
Boy this is the worst weak of school yet. We arc having quarterly exams this week and school on Saturday again.
I guess I won’t get home to help you cat turkey Thanksgiving. Maybe you could send me some of it. I don't sup|x sc we'll have any at the dormitory. They will probably catch a pigeon, roast him and call it a turkey. That reminds me I must go to lunch. Will write more after I get back.
Well I got lxick all right and I'm not foundered either, Don’t lx: mad when I tell you that I have to have more money, but it ain’t my fault. We’ve got to get a Peruvian. There not out yet but we have to pay $2 down on them if we want one.
Well I’ve got to finish another notebook to hand in so goodby for this time. See you in the funny paper.
