HOME ECONOMICS FRATERNITY
THE Home Economics Department has always been unified because the type of work has naturally brought them close together. It logically followed that the Department should organize.
The creation of this organization took place in 1920 under the direction of Miss Kathryn Towne, and has been growing under the leadership of Miss Edna Weare and Miss Mabel Cook during the year 1929-1930.
This Club has been corresponding with organizations of similar nature in other colleges. Through this work they have gathered reliable and interesting material which has helped them in their own activities. Another objective of the Club has been to become familiar with the leaders in the field of Home Economics. Home Economics is truly a science and it is of value to those planning to teach the subject to know of the progress that has been made in this line of work and of those who have been leaders in that progress.
The officers for the past year have been: Nel!a Baird, president; Carolyn Henningsen, vice-president; Emily Peterson, secretary; Lela McCrory, treasurer..

THE Young Men’s Christian Association is one of the worthiest organizations in college. But worthiness is not its only attribute, for a "good time had by all” aptly describes every meeting.
The Y. M. C. A. this year carried out a project that has never before been used at Peru. This was the organization of a Gospel team. This group prepared a religious program consisting of vocal and instrumental music and the Biblical drama, "Courage.” They presented this program as a special service in the churches at Peru and elsewhere. From this beginning, the work of the Gospel Team is expected to grow and become an important part of the Y. M. C. A. activities.
One of the major achievements of the Association was the Father and Son banquet held in the early fall. This is an annual event and is attended by real fathers with their sons and by many of the college men who bring younger boys from the Training School.
The purpose of the Y. M. C. A. has been stated many times, but it expresses in a few words the basic meaning of the organization and can well bear repetition: "The purpose of Young Men’s Christian Association is to lead men to faith in God; to unify the student body in its purpose in action; and to promote growth in character and fellowship among men.”
The officers for the past year have been: Raymond Trenholm, president; Elmer Hertel, vice-president; Dean Grass, treasurer; John Bath, secretary; and Edwin Booth, program chairman.

YOUNG WOMEN’S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
Graves, Kaltrkborx, Elliott, Prokks, McGrkw, Wilson
ON OCTOBER 19, 1887, a permanent charter was given to the newly organized Y. Y: C. A. Each year had added to the strength of the organization, making it truly valuable in the lives of Peru students.
The purpose of the Y. Y. C. A. is two-fold: To unite in the desire to realize full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God; and to have a part in making this life possible for all people. To accomplish their ideals, the girls seek to understand Jesus and to follow Him.
The Student Friendship Fund has been aided by the Y. Y. C. A. for the past four years and every Christmas, baskets for the poor are prepared by this organization.
The Y. Y. C. A. also sponsored jointly with the Y. M. C. A. an institute February 16 and 17. Three international speakers were brought to our campus by that institute. The speakers were Mrs. Kim of Korea, Dr. Ise of University of Kansas and Miss Read of England.
On Sunday morning Mrs. Kim spoke at a union service of the churches. That afternoon there was a program at Eliza Morgan Hall, and on Sunday evening a union meeting was held at the College Auditorium. Monday the speakers talked in several of the classes and Monday night the final meeting was held, Miss Read of England being the speaker. She compared for us English and American college life.
