To deal in platitudes concerning the staff is unnecessary.
It is they who have made this PERUVIAN. To say where one has surpassed another in service is impossible. All must receive honorable mention. For three consecutive years the PERUVIAN Key has been awarded those who contributed dana j. schneider
most to the production of the annual. The quality of the
work done by the members who shall this year wear the key may not have excelled that of others, but their tasks necessitated longer hours and more patience. These receive the gold key:

Weaving the woof of the past with the warp of the present the 1934 PERUVIAN has throughout its pages looked toward the future. The staff has caught the spirit that has dominated Peru through its sixty-seven years of progress, and herein each in his own sphere passes it on to you. With this as a background may you feel again the thrill of that Homecoming football game, the excitement of that winning Bobcat basket, laugh again at the plays, sports reviews, revel in a college dance, see those personalities who came and went across these hills, and live aoain this college year as you turn the paqes of the 1934 PERUVIAN.

The school grew, and there came a time when the students who attended desired some record of the society meetings, debates, campus life and a publishing of articles inspirational to the prospective teacher and alumni in the field. That desire taking form in the minds of Peruvians became a reality in "The Normal School Courier," 1892. That forerunner of the newspaper was more nearly a magazine as was its successor, "The Normal School Messenger," 1898. The best in literature from the campus and the world found its way into the pages of these little magazines, and the records of the campus activities show that Peruvians were truly enjoying themselves.
"The Normal School Journal" came to life in 1905, only to give way to "The Nor-malite" the following year. Though still in magazine form and published only once a month until 1915, when it achieved the size and form of a newspaper, the Normalite gives readers a distinct picture of Peru athletics, organizations, music, debates, social life until 1921, when the changing of the school from a normal to a state teachers college necessitated another name.
The Peru Pedagogian most aptly named proved its worthy successor.
Certain persons must ever be indelibly linked with these campus records. T. L. Van Vleet was editor of the 1892 "Normal Courier" with James E. Delzell and James H. Hayes as business managers, and J. A. Beattie edited the "State Normal School Messenger" of 1898. J. L. Akers, J. E. Morgan, John Hanna, Bert Swenson, Delzells, and D. H. Weber labored to publish the first Normalites. When the name became Pedagogian Paul Wilcox headed the staff. Names of those of journalistic leanings since that date seem more familiar to readers today: Arthur Majors, George R. Willy, Merritt Whitten, Jere Mickel, Joe Jones, C. E. Lefler, J. A. Jimmerson, John S. Boswell. Nona Palmer, Don Tyler, Merna Brownson, Iva Pierce, and Florence Martin.

How strange that first little annual, the "Golden Rod," appears today with its corded tie holding the pages of a year's history together. Those pages turn. There's the color song, "The Pale Blue and the White" published for the first time, a record of that dedicatory game on the athletic field and a section devoted to the beginning of official basketball
games. On the staff appears the names C. W. Buckley, editor and Hattie Halcomb and Frank Munday, business managers.
On dov n the years in 1907 came the "Oak Leaf," with Earl M. Cline and Myrtle Krebs as editors, and F. D. Brooks, now at Johns Hopkins University, business manager. These little annuals struggled for existence, many times seemed defeated, but always came up smiling, paving the way for the PERUVIAN in 1908.
John A. Hanna, a doctor at Columbia University, edited this original PERUVIAN assisted by D. L. Carlson, business manager. Once or twice the fight for an annual record of Peru’s life seemed almost futile, but the copy went to press. Old man depression struck a blow again in 1933, but the PERUVIAN came out!
