Pi Gamma Mu
National Social Science Fraternity

DR. CASTLE M. BROWN . . Adviser
Nebraska Gamma, the local chapter of Pi Gamma Mu, was installed in April, 1929, and has been an active organization since that time. The Peru chapter was the seventy-second to be formed. Leroy Allen originated the idea of Pi Gamma Mu in the early spring of 1924 at Southwestern College, Winfield. Kansas. Pi Gamma Mu is not an ordinary honorary fraternity. It has no national ritual and no secret features of any sort. Its name is simple and modest, merely the initials of the Greek words meaning "Students of Social Science." The motto is "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
The purpose of Pi Gamma Mu is the inculcation of the ideals of scholarship, scientific attitude, method and social service in relation to all social problems.
Members are elected from juniors and seniors of superior scholastic rank who are majoring or minoring in history or other social sciences.
No particular theme save the general purpose of the group has been carried out in the programs of Pi Gamma Mu this year
Some of the meetings are devoted to a detailed study of current events, such as Russian recognition. A social meeting in February was one of the most enjoyable. At this time the society was entertained at the home of its adviser, Dr. Brown. At another Miss Frances Harvey shared some of the material she had discovered in doing research in Texas history. At the January meeting Mrs. Campbell reviewed her trip abroad. The organization is seriously contemplating the purchase of various social science periodicals which will be of interest to the entire group.

1933-34 saw the installation of the newest national fraternity on the campus, Lambda Delta Lambda. The local group, the Kappa Chapter, was installed June 27, 1933, at which time nine members were initiated.
The charter members of this chapter are Ora Ferguson, Hubert Filley, Alfred Knapp, Charles Penney, Moras Shubert, Elizabeth Sprague, and Dr. F. E. Ware. Initiates added to this list the first semester were Huston Kingsolver, John Neman, Robert Pate. Darrell Railsback, and Robert Sayre.
The first chapter of the fraternity was organized at Fairmont. West Virginia, in 1925. Since then nine other chapters have become affiliated. The second chapter to become associated with this honor society is located at another of Nebraska's State Teachers Colleges. Beta Chapter at Wayne. There is also a chapter at Kearney.
To promote interest in the study of the Physical Sciences is the aim of Lambda Delta Lambda. This purpose is accomplished in two ways: first, by scholarship restrictions for membership, and secondly, by a requirement that each member complete a project in these fields. This project must show some originality. It may be a demonstration or model pertaining to some principle of physical science, or, if in the form of a report, it must be the summarization of extensive reading on a chosen subject. These projects are presented at a regular meeting for approval.
The programs are devoted to setting forth and discussing subjects of latest scientific interest, stimulating at all times a desire to read current science periodicals.
