BURKE McCANN NABORS WALDO
The season of 1955 was the thirty-sixth in the history of intercollegiate debating at Peru, and the work of the 1955 squad upheld the high traditions established by the Peru debaters who have come, argued, and gone. Seventeen midwestern colleges and universities were met in a series of twenty-eight debates during the season, and the Department sponsored the first M. I. N. K. Debate Tournament.
The season was begun with a five-day trip through Missouri and Kansas. Tarkio College was the first team met on this trip. Then followed in turn, Maryville State Teachers College, Park College, Rockhurst College, William Jewell College, Baker University, and Ottawa University.
On March 1-2, the first M. I. N. K. Debate Tournament was held on the Peru campus. Twenty-two high school teams gathered at Peru to discuss the question, “Resolved: That the federal government should adopt the policy of equalizing educational opportunity throughout the nation by means of annual grants to the several states for public elementary and secondary education." Tournament honors were won by Central High School and North High School, both of Omaha.
Intercollegiate debating was resumed on March 8, with a chapel debate at Peru between the Peru Affirmative and Tarkio Negative Teams, before what Dean Delzcll jokingly termed the students with the high I.Q.'s. A second trip was made, March 12-16. Both affirmative and negative teams were met at the University of Omaha and at Morningside College (Sioux City, Iowa). Following the Morning-side debates, the squad entered the Men's “A" Division at the Nebraska Intercollegiate Forensic Association Tournament, at Lincoln. In this meet, Peru met teams from Chadron State Teachers' College, Wayne State Teachers' College, Nebraska Central, York, Doanc, Midland, Hastings, Dana Colleges, and Nebraska Wesleyan University.
The season closed with the visit of two Morningside teams to the Peru campus on March 21.
The Pi Kappa question, “Resolved: That the nations should agree to prevent the international shipment of arms and munitions” was the subject for the inter-collegiate debates. As has been the custom in recent years, no official decisions were given on the results of the debates except at the State Forensic Tournament. While Peru won no championships, the season must be counted as a notable success. Forensic relations were continued with old and respected rivals, and such relationships were begun with new friends. The work of the 1955 squad has maintained and enhanced the prestige Peru has developed throughout the years in the realm of forensics.

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.
