THE last page has been sent to the printer. Our tired hands drop nervously from drawing pen and shears. This littered office no longer rings with the staccato of long-droning typewriters. We arc no longer troubled with nightmares and bugbears of discount dates and time limits—the 1929 Peruvian is done!
You now hold the fruits of one year’s efforts and tireless endeavors of one of the most loyal staffs with which any editor has had the pleasure of associating. When there was work to be done, every last one of them would rally to the cause and stay on the job until it was completed. Few people can realize the hours of laljor that arc utilized in producing even one page of this l ook.
The 1929 Peruvian is done! It has caused us many sleepless nights and fretful days, and a temper that was once meek and serene is now sadly afflicted with Peruvian “Heebe-jeebes.” So, if there are a series of typographical errors after your name, or even if we have given you a new name, do not blame us too much, but rather lay part of your just condemnation on the system. We have loved the Peruvian so much that we gave our only begotten courses that its pages might bear good fruit.
Editing the Peruvian has not been without its glorifying moments. Representative student candidates, and others that aspired to be candidates, smiled and looked longingly at us in March, only to turn frigid and give us frozen glances in May. Classmen, whose names were misspelled or whose pictures were left out, have made wild threats at us, but we arc still happy and alive.
The 1929 Peruvian is done! We thank Mr. Carter and Mr. Larson for their patience and advice; we thank the Peterson studio for co-operating with us and getting the photographs done on time; we thank the printer and engraver for their guidance and perseverance; we thank Hob Murphree for his planning and directing, and, last of all—we thank God that it is all over.
To the editors of future Peruvians, we extend our best wishes and congratulations. Some people are born crazy, others are temporarily insane, and others edit a yearbook.
