pm ALPHA CHAPTER of Sigma Tau Delta was founded at Peru State Teachers College by E. C. Beck in 1926. It was the first national professional fraternity on the campus. The Greek letters forming the name symbolize the motto: Sincerity, Truth, and Design. Since its inception there have been one hundred seventy members initiated. The chapter at Peru and one in Texas are the most active of the sixty-two chapters throughout the United States.
The official publication of the fraternity is “The Rectangle, published four times each year from the national headquarters at Wayne. Nebraska. The local chapter has been represented in all but one issue of The Rectangle.”

Every year Beta Mu Chapter gives recognition to the most outstanding freshman on the campus. In this way Beta Mu hopes to encourage higher professional aims among those who some day will join her ranks.
In 1931 the first Inter-Fraternity Banquet held on Peru Campus was sponsored by Kappa Delta Pi Society. This banquet took place on Wednesday of Commencement Week. It is hoped that this will become an established function.
Every alternate year one delegate from each chapter is entertained at the annual convocation of the chapters which meets at the time and place of the meeting held by the Department of Superintendents of the N. E. A. In 1930 the meeting was held in Atlantic City, and Beta Mu Chapter was represented by Miss Helen Kucera. In 1932 the meeting was held in Washington. D. C.. Miss Virginia McNeal representing Beta Mu. These trips are partly financed by the National Organization, and make a direct contact between the local chapters and national executive heads.

IGMA TAU DELTA aims to stimulate worthwhile reading, to foster a spirit of fellowship among men and women specializing in English, and to promote the mastery of written expression. Each year the December meeting is devoted to the presentation of original Christmas writing, and annually the chapter has a prominent speaker as its guest at which time the Freshmen Writing Club is entertained. As a part of the regular commencement exercises. Sigma Tau Delta makes its gold medal award to the freshman writing the best essay during the year.
The Phi Alpha Chapter at Peru had two delegates. Mcrna Brownson and Bernice Lovitt. at the National Triennial Convention in Madison. Wisconsin. December 28-30. The local fraternity was unable sufficiently to finance the trip, so an amendment to the constitution was adopted which will provide for the accumulation in three years of a fund of forty-five dollars to be used for the next convention in St. Louis in 1934.
An invitation to exchange programs once during the year was extended to the chapter of Sigma Tau Delta at the Omaha Municipal University, but they were unable to accept. It is hoped, however, that such a plan can be realized another year.
