Lambda Delta Lambda
National Physical Science Fraternity
HUBERT FILLEY . CHARLES PENNEY DANA SCHNEIDER MORAS SHUBERT ALFRED KNAPP .
. . President
Vice-President . . Treasurer
. . Secretary
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.

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.

Sigma Tau Delta
National English Fraternity
Each year Sigma Tau Delta is accustomed to entertain some notable speaker as the principal event of the year's program. Both this year and last year it was honored by Dr. John S. Neihardt. poet laureate of Nebraska.
Every year, in order to stimulate interest in the society and in creative writing, a gold medal is awarded at Commencement time to the freshman who has written the best essay.
Literary efforts of the members are published quarterly in "The Rectangle," the fraternity's official magazine. The local chapter has been represented in this and other publications during the year. Marion Marsh, Mrs. Norwood, Mrs. Lon Graf, Mrs. B. K. Baker, Miss Grace Tear. Hazel Dit-loff and Betty Pancake have had work recognized. Three plays written by Phi Alpha Chapter members have been presented on the college stage. Anna Best Joder's one-act farce. "The Decimal Point." was given as Sigma Tau Delta's annual convocation program, and her tragedy, "The Shadow," won second place for Peru High School in the M. I. N. K. Dramatic Contest. In March the college Dramatic Club presented "In the Shadow of a Rock." written by E. P. Conkle. a Peruvian who is achieving nation-wide fame as a playwright. Phi Alpha Chapter has a very creditable number of other members who have become outstanding figures in their fields.
The following poem was written by one of the society's best-loved members, Miss Esther Ann Clark, and has been set to music by another member, Evelyn Brecht. The words were inspired by a particular friend, but Sigma Tau Delta has adopted them as the perfect expression of its spirit of fellowship.
BY THE WAY
Side by side we walked together For a while.
Two good comrades of an hour Or a mile;
But the whole day long was brighter And its steady trudging lighter For your smile.
It was more than just a meeting Of the day.
For the earnest of its handclasp Lasts for aye:
And it makes all friendship sweeter,
Yes, and life itself completer All the way.
