Tri Beta is no longer a national biological fraternity, but has become an international fraternity, with an active chapter at Ycnching University, Peking, China. This was announced during the Tri Beta convention which was held at Dcs Moines at the same time as the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The first publication of the official Tri Beta journal, The Bios, appeared on March 10, 1930. There arc now twenty chapters of Tri Beta.

NATIONAL BIOLOGICAL SOCIETY
TRI BETA was organized for the purpose of promoting interest in this department of learning and in furthering the objectives of the science. The objectives of Tri Beta are to stimulate scholarship, to spread biological information, and to advance science by new discoveries. It emphasizes, therefore, a threefold program, namely: Sound scholarship, dissemination of scientific knowledge, and promptness of biological research.
Pi Chapter of Tri Beta was installed on the Peru campus February 13, 1928, by Dr. William Goldsmith, the National President of the Fraternity. The charter members were selected from the membership of Sigma Beta Rho, a local honorary biological fraternity.
Membership is open to students of junior and senior ranking, who are taking their major work in the biology department, and who have a scholarship record superior to the average grade of the whole student body. Associate membership is open to lower classmen majoring in biology. Tri Beta sponsors an annual undergraduate essay contest on subjects of biological interest. Awards of $25, $15, and $10 are presented to the writers of the best papers.

NATIONAL SOCIAL SCIENCE FRATERNITY
THE local chapter of Pi Gamma Mu, the national social science honor society, was installed in April, 1929. Peru chapter is the seventy-second chapter to be formed. The idea of Pi Gamma Mu originated at Southwestern College, Winfield, Kansas, in the early spring of 1924. Pi Gamma Mu is not an ordinary honor society. It has no national ritual and no secret features of any sort. Its name is simple and modest, merely the initials of the Greek words meaning "Students of Social Science."
The purpose of Pi Gamma Mu is the inculcation of the ideals of scholarship, scientific attitude, method, and social service in relation to all social problems. Members are elected from seniors and juniors having general average of A or B, who are majoring or minoring in History or other Social Sciences.
Pi Gamma Mu publishes a quarterly journal called "Social Science," which appeared first in 1925. Its special purpose is to vitalize and deepen scientific social interest in young educated people.
Members of the local chapter this year have been investigating historical topics of local interest, gathering materials and shaping them into form suitable for publication.
