THE 1934 PERUVIAN RED CROSS FIRST ROW: Banks. Boyor. Collond. Gatos. Gohling. Shumard. Cook. Ponnoy. Gaines SECOND ROW: Davoy. Haskins. Darting. Gorder. Mendenhall. Deaver. Scott. Davidson. Huddleston, Harris D ED CROSS Life Saving Tests were first conducted on the Peru campus in the fall of 1932. Edward 1 v Wood of Nebraska City gave the first test in October. At that time eleven qualified as Senior Red LIFE SAVING Cross Life Savers. The following month the Red Cross sent a special Field Representative to the cam- pus to give the Examiners Test. The successful passing of this qualified six Peruvians to conduct Junior and Senior Tests. Again in the fall of 1933 a Field Representative was sent to test applicants for their Examiner's badge, at which time ten examiners qualified. The last tests were given in March. 1934. Again, several Peruvians met satisfactorily the Senior Test qualifications at that time. During their two years of existence here, these tests have known a successful and commendable growth. Credit for this, in a large measure, must be given to Miss Phyllis Davidson, women's athletic director, who has conducted several life saving classes during the past two years. A list of the tests given since 1932. and those who successfully passed them, follows: Beginnors...................................130 Junior Life Saving Test.......................2 Swimmers.....................................45 Senior Life Saving Test......................31 Examiners................................................12 67 J

Vice President ARTHUR HARRIS . . . Secretary-Treasurer COACH GLEN GILKESON . . . Adviser COACH ERNEST LORBEER . . . Adviser Phi Lambda Alpha is composed of Greek letters symbolic of the meaning of this organization, P. L. A. standing for Peru's Loyal Athletes. Those men who have lettered in any of the sports through intercollegiate competition, football, basketball, track, or tennis are eligible for membership. From 1920, the date of its origin under Coach Speer, until 1929 this organization was called the "P" Club. The purpose has ever been the fostering of sportsmanship. The alumni - varsity basketball game which brought Joe Krejci. Ernie Rothert, "Swede" Hertz, Bernard Galloway, Homer Hatcher, Edward Peterson, "Brigham" Young, and other famous Peru athletes again to the campus was one of the many activities sponsored by the fraternity. In April the Spring Review proved a most entertaining program. Phi Lambda Alpha and the Dramatic Club joined forces to make this a success. One of the outstanding social events at Peru is the annual "P" Club dance. Members of the basketball and football squads were special guests of the group this year. Thirteen new members, after undergoing a week of severe trial of their strength and stamina, were allowed to enter the fold of the organization in 1934. Phi Lambda Alpha provides a unifying agent whereby all those who possess superior athletic ability in any of the sports may work together toward the maintenance of high athletic standards.

Regers, Borgman. lorimor Third Row; Scott. Hanlon. Seller, Davey The w. A. A., an outgrowth of the G. A. A., was organised in 1924 under the direction of Ruby Damme. Since that time no organization has been more vitally alive. To the athletically inclined girl it opens a most varied program of health and recreation: hit-pin ball, volleyball, baseball, basketball, hockey, swimming, pyramid building, and hiking. The tournament gomes played at the end of each sport season prove of intcrost to the general studont body as well as to the participants. Points are awarded for entrance into the various activities. Five hundred such points entitle a girl to a letter, and for earning one thousand she is awarded a sweater, which it is possible for a girl to earn within a period of two years. To build a cabin was the goal set for this year. Through sponsoring an all-college dance, and presenting. among other activities, a Sport Review, one of the most unusual, successful entertainments given at Peru, they have raised sufficient funds, and the cabin has become a reality. To any girl is extended the opportunity of becoming a member of W. A. A. OFFICERS MELBA COPE...................President MARJORIE MENDENHALL .
