THE 19 3 4 PERUVIAN
Meet the "baby" musical organization on the campus. Not only Is It the smallest but the youngest, too, having come Into being in October, 1933. when it played for the Woman's Club. After this appearance the members felt it worthwhile to continue practices together regularly, and the quartet has become one of the most "up and coming" organizations on the campus.
During the year it has played for the churches of Peru, the Kiwanis Club, the District American Legion Convention, campus activities, including the Sigma Tau Delta banquet, the athletic banquet, fraternity meetings, convocation and a Sunday dormitory recital with the Geron. It has co-operated with the Dramatic Club, furnishing all the period music for "In the Shadow of a Rock." and the Christmas Guest Night plays. This spring it accompanied the Dramatic Club on out-of-town trips to Julian and Pawnee City. The College Orchestra concert at Nebraska City was supplemented by this group.
All of its entertaining was not done assisting others, for the quartet played scvoral selections at Rockport, Missouri, at Auburn for the Kiwanis banquet, and Hamburg. Iowa, which made arrangements for a return engagement. "Serenade" by Slunicho has proved their most popular number this year.
Wilma Silence, who plays third violin in the group, presented her Senior recital in April, while Ruth Naviaux and Eunice Burbridge both gave their Junior recitals in March. During their entire college careers all four girls have been most active in the musical field, three of them playing other instruments than the violin. Just fifty minutes after six in the morning seems an unusual time for practice. but that is the regular period selected by the group.
The girls of the quartet have two souvenirs in particular of the year's work, a recording made by Mr. Kettering of Doane. and the memory of one broadcast from KMA.

THE 19 3 4 PERUVIAN
Published in the "Golden Rod"
Fling abroad our College colors To the free Nebraska breeze, Blending Heaven's own white and azure With the soft green of the trees; While our loyal hearts and voices With pride and joy unite,
As we sing Peru's devotion To the Pale Blue and the White.
While our loyal hearts and voices With pride and joy unite,
As we sing Peru's devotion
To the Pale Blue and the White.
Through the years of sun and shadow Mid the scenes we love so well,
O'er our hearts and dear old colors Still weave their magic spell;
And wherever life shall call us We'll strive with all our might To uphold the brave tradition Of the Pale Blue and the White.
When the cares of life o'ertake us, Mingling fast our locks with gray, Should our dearest hopes forsake us, False fortunes fade av ay,
We shall banish pain and sadness By mem'ries fond and bright Of the Old Nebraska College And the Pale Blue and the White.
