Professor D. J. Nabors.
.....T reas irer
Professor D. J. Nabors is to be lauded for his untiring efforts in filling the 1934-35 school year with first-class dramatic productions. The Peru Dramatic Club members recognize in him a sincere and industrious gentleman, and an industrious leader with the self-assurance his position requires.
This year Mr. Nabors has endeavored to stimulate interest in draamtics by taking his proteges on several tours. LE BOURGEOUS GENTILHOMME by Molicrc is the most popular tour play of the year. LADIES OF THE JURY, the Homecoming play, received many favorable comments from a large and appreciative audience. The second anuial COLLEGE PARADE surpassed the previous Parade given last year; its success being due to the careful selection and presentation of a wide variety of dramatic and musical numbers. GROWING PAINS, a rolicking comedy of adolescence, was given in March.
Plays of the 1934 season included Channing Pollocks HOUSE BEAUTIFUL, a romantic play with a touch of the fanciful, which was presented by the senior members of the dramatic club. The 1934 summer plays included an unusual mystery play, THE SPIDER, and a romantic comedy, THE ROMANCERS, played by an all-girls cast.
“LADIES OF THE JURY”

The T;irkio College dramatic fraternity. Alpha Psi Omega, presented to the Peru audience HEDDA GABLER, which marks the beginning of a series of exchanges of plays with other colleges. Next year, tours may be made into Missouri and other adjoining states in addition to visits to the other colleges in Nebraska.
Mr. Nabors and members of the Dramatic Club feci that the time and energy expended in pro' ducing a play justifies a number of presentations of the play, and these tours are being planned to provide opportunities for these additional presentations. One of the aims of the tours is to encourage the development of dramatics in the surrounding communities.
The MINK Dramatic contest is rapidly becoming a tradition at Peru, and each year we find an increased number of contestants. Mr. Nabors has improved this activity by the addition of the college division. Kirksville, Missouri, presented THE MAKER OF DREAMS; Wayne, THE MOST FOOL' ISH VIRGIN; Peru, LOCKED WINDOWS. In the near future the College Festival, as this feature of the contest is called, probably will become divorced from the MINK dates. Inasmuch as it has re-ceived great popularity its initial year we hope to see six or eight colleges in the second annual contest.
Henceforth the Dramatic Club is to be limited to upper classmen. Membership and experience in the Freshmen Player's Club is to be the prerequisite for membership in the P. D. C.
Application for membership in the THETA ALPHA PHI, National Dramatic Arts Fraternity, has been filed by the Peru Dramatic Club. The National Fraternity is very exclusive—all of which means that the Peru Club must possess high standards. Mr. Nabors and club members arc very optimistic. It is possible that the club may receive a local charter this summer.
