First row—Booth, Brockman, Delzkll (Siwnsor), Hbrtel Second row—Hofmann, Hurst, Rotiikrt
THE Men’s Club is an organization including all the men in College. The Club’s purpose is to build up pep and carry on the “Spirit of Old Peru.’’
Meetings are held every other Monday in the Little Theater. These meetings are conducted by the regular club procedure and the programs are planned by the members of the Club.
One of the outstanding programs of the year was presented by Dr. W. E. Vaughn. This program made a lasting impression on the men. Many comments and laughs were heard days after the program had passed.
The second semester officers were: Elmer Hertel, President; Helmut
Brockman, Vice-President; Edwin Booth, Secretary; Earl Hurst, Treasurer.
The Men’s Club is an organization that not only talks, but acts. This fact is evidenced by the organized aid given during the M. I. N. K. Music and Dramatic Contest held in February. Members of the Club solicited rooms for the contestants who planned to stay over; they officiated at the door and in general helped the participants of the contest to better know Peru.
The same thing was done during the Regional Basket Ball Tournament by the Men’s Club.
The first semester officers were: Ernest Rothcrt, President; Helmut
Brockman, Vice-President; Henry Hofmann, Secretary; Earl Hurst, Treasurer.

IN KEEPING with the idea of a teachers college, the name of the weekly college newspaper, the Peru Pedagogian, is significant.
The Peru Normalite, the newspaper of the Peru Normal, was succeeded in 1921 by The Pedagogian when the institution became a state teachers college.
Since that time it has progressed rapidly and has become one of the best weekly college newspapers in the state. Paul Wilcox of Nebraska City was the first editor of The Pedagogian.
The editorship during the first quarter of this year was in charge of William Okrent. During the last three quarters Marie Parker was editor. The business management was under the direction of Donald J. Tyler and Willard Fowler. Professor Frank H. Heck was the faculty adviser for this school year.
The feature newspaper of the year was the holiday edition of eight pages. Advertisements which formed the letters P. S. T. C. were arranged on the four inside pages. This issue of the paper was dedicated to Dr. E. R. Reynolds of Auburn who has donated his services to Peru athletics for ten years. During the high school basket ball tournament, the staff published a special edition in colors.

MUSIC AT PERU
CONFUCIUS said: “When Music and Courtesy are better understood and appreciated, there will be no war.”
Music speaks in a language common to all, and is not limited to what we call language. It contains the actual germ or fundamental of the universe; that rhythm, without which nothing material can exist. So we have the right to call music, not a mere imitative art, but a creative art—infinite in its scope, and both human and Divine in its origin.
A sculptor can form a Venus de Milo that is so like the original that only a master can discern. A painter can make a copy of an actual, or touch up an unreal canvas, to look like a Gainsborough. For the past years talented composers have been competing for huge prizes offered for the completion of Schubert’s famous “Unfinished Symphony.” None have succeeded, not even approximated the master’s work. Why? Music is an expression of the soul, the motivation of an idea, some thing that comes from away down deep in one’s inner being. It can never come from without; it must be experienced from within.
Music is a living, vital factor on Peru’s campus. The study of applied music is given special attention, as to standard of faculty, and performance of students. The first requisite of an educated person is to excel in some one thing. There is a demand for this kind of teacher, rather than the one who teaches a little of all branches. Subject matter and performance are stressed by the professors, who are themselves excellent artists, with much experience in the concert and opera fields.
Every one at Peru has the opportunity to engage in some musical activity. The Chorus, Girls' Glee Club, Men’s Glee Club, the Orchestra, the Band, are open to all—without examination. It is remarkable with what degree of finesse and artistry these organizations perform, when it is recalled that many schools admit only the most talented to such groups.
Yes, Music does live at Peru; it does more than live, it works. It helps keep the campus a pleasant place to spend the week-end, with its Sunday afternoon musicalcs at the lovely Eliza Morgan Parlors. There arc courses in Music Appreciation so that every one may be more interested in, and more appreciative of the various activities. Music is more than a diversion for the select few; it is a necessity for all, that they may be more fully, and more richly endowed with those attributes essential to all well-rounded and worth-while lives.
