THE 1934 PERUVIAN
The Bobcat walked out of his cage, sat down, flicked an ear and yawned. You'd yawn too if you had to look at what he does day after day, year after year. Peru collegians are queer, almost as queer as Peru faculty.
Licking a paw he remarked, "Things don't change. Why, back in 1913 somebody asked in the 'Normalite' how many hours of credit one got for attending the Mount Vernon lectures.
"You should read the poetry of 1910"—and with an aesthetic sigh he caught a tear on the tip of his tongue and began,
" 'May I print a kiss upon your lips?
She nodded her sweet permission,
So they went to press,
And I rather guess They printed a whole edition.'—
Just like they do on that bench by my cage today."
Again the Bobcat flicked his ear. There must be something bothering him—something in that ear. Scratching it thoughtfully he suddenly thrust his paw inside and brought forth a book all bound in Blue and White—such a huge book and such a little ear; but, oh, what it must have heard!
"My record of 1934 to pass on to ’35," he cried and began to read in a wailing
"By Their Words Shall Ye Know Them"
"Ladies and Gentlemen . . ."
"Gentlemen on the front row, please."
"You'd better quit using your book as a pillow."
"Pardon the personal reference, but . . ."
"When I was in Whichita . . ."
"I'll grant you that"—though.
"It makes my Susie seem so inadequate."
"I have two announcements."
"There'll be a college dance. This is the first one we've been able to have without anything on."
"The Training School band will now give its dress rehearsal without the dress." "Here comes Heck."
"We will continue from this point tomorrow."
"Convocation is now dismissed."

THE 1934 PERUVIAN
Shaking his head from side to side the Bobcat read the clippings he'd cut from "Peds," picked up from passers-by as they cast their remarks and jibes, and we copied them down as he read.
A new degree has been granted on the campus this year—P. A. was awarded Winter, Coatney, Nabors and Norwood.
A Pedagogian ad: Any old bottles, horns, or pictures—especially pictures will be heartily accepted and proper settlement made.—Adv. Deluxe Picture Snatcher Corporation, John Samuel Fostetti, president.
Knows Aue Hears Aue Sees Aue
Mrs. Dunning: "Bonita, it's time for all freshmen to come in."
Shrader: "Just a second."
Mrs. Dunning: "And if I'm not mistaken there’s already been a third and a fourth."
Mr. Nabors (coming upon Marjorie Young playing the clarinet): "What was that piece you just played?"
Marj.: " 'Drink to Me Only v ith Thine Eyes.' "
D. J.: "That must have after the drink!"
With a tear in his voice he read on:
Headlines from the Peru Pedagogian: DEBATE HELD
IN CHAPEL Stately court ceremony followed by Dancing and Judging of costumes. -------------perhaps Monday?
QUEEN OF HEARTS Waldo and Shumard on the affirmative. Whiting and Johnson negative.
Perhaps the "Peek" of a "Doig's" life isn't so bad after all, and the Bobcat took time out for another of his aesthetic sighs.
