Sigma Tau Delta, the Notional English Fraternity, was organized to promote the mastery of written expression, to stimulate worth-while reading, and to foster a spirit of fellowship among those who specialize in English. The Phi Alpha Chapter was founded at Peru by Dr. E. C. Beck in 1926.
The activities during the year maintained the high standards of the past. A luncheon was given for Dr. J. G. Neihardt, Nebraska's poet laureate. Every member read on original composition at the Christmas meeting. Mrs. Chauncey Palmer-Smith, author and playwright of Lincoln, Nebraska, was a guest speaker at the January meeting.
To encourage creative effort, a medal is awarded each year at the commencement exercises to the freshman writing the best composition.

Ten students hove been welcomed to Beta Mu chapter during the year 1932-33. Five were initiated in the fall at a novel banquet prepared and served by Kadelpion hands. In the spring a special meeting was held at the home of Prof, and Mrs. J. W. Tyler to receive the other five initiates and install the officers for 1933.
Although the seasons were observed by appropriate entertainment, the yuletide luncheon at the home of Miss Mary Hileman at which time the Christmas story was retold in music was especially enjoyable. Those sophomores of superior ranking were again guests at the annual Dutch Oven Picnic. To become acquainted with those graduate members who have received recognition in the fields of professional education. to study enlightening books and to emphasize the duties of a true Kadelpian after school days, whether he has been elected to a position or not. have all been included in the 1933 program purposes of the fraternity. In 1932 the sponsoring of the inter-fraternity banquet became an established function of the organization.
The official publication of the fraternity, the "Kadelpian.” devoted to educational interests and advancements, is published each quarter.
