HONOR STUDENT FRATERNITY
THIS is the second year in the life of Alpha Erudito on the Peru campus.
The members are those who have been Scholarship Students in the high schools they have attended. These scholarships are of a value only in the Teachers Colleges of Nebraska.
This Club has been organized to bring together in college those students who have been superior in scholastic attainment in high school.
In this way those who have similar ideas and abilities are brought together. As this is essentially a Teachers College, methods used in the high schools from which the members come are discussed.
The monthly meetings of the society are held for their social value to the members and for the encouragement they provide for further scholarship work in college.
This year the meetings have been in charge of the various groups representing the departments in which they are majoring. This plan has given the members a broader view of the curricula of the school and helped them in their choice of electives.
The first semester officers were: Helen Kaltenborn, President; Sue Wesner, Vice-President; Nina Burdette, Recording Secretary; Sylvia Davis, Corresponding Secretary; Ellen Zink, Treasurer.
The second semester officers: George Cook, President; Wayne Reed, Vice-President; Jessie Joy, Treasurer, Lucille Coleman, News Reporter. Mrs. Norwood has been the sponsor of the Club this year.

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.

AS IS Peru, so is the Philomathean Society, and both have grown together since 1869. Through all these years, the Philos have never ceased their activities, and have always been an organization of which the school has been proud.
The purpose of the Philomathean Society is to develop the social attributes of its members. This development is not only in a literary way, although that is the basis for the organization, but it is in musical, dramatic, and executive ways as well. The executive ability is given vent in the office of program chairman, where ability to handle people, as well as initiative in preparing original programs is necessary.
