To realize a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God is the aim of every mem' her of the Young Women's Christian Association. Active interest in "Y" has helped many girls gradually attain this goal.
Meetings during the first semester of this year were centered about Kirby Page's book, “Living Creatively," each meeting dealing with one requisite of a creative life, namely:
1. Relieve human misery. 6.
2. Transform unjust social systems. 7.
3. Gain vision and serenity through silence. 8.
4. Seek beauty. 9.
5. Cultivate friendship and fellowship. 10.
Recover strength through penitence. Explore great biographies.
Follow the noblest personality. Cooperate creatively with God.
Run risks and accept penalties.
In February, eight members attended the Y. W.—Y. M. Cabinet Training Conference at Kearney, Nebraska. Here they received added zeal and inspiration, which they brought back to the campus.
Miss Barbara Lautz, co-worker with Stella Scurlock, the National Y. W. C. A. Regional Secretary, visited the campus in March, leading several interesting and timely discussions during her stay.

The Girls' Club Party
The crowning event of the year, the annual costume party, was held February 16, in the high school auditorium. It was a Depression and Prosperity Party, with Miss Evelyn Jones as Queen of Prosperity, and Miss Kathryn Roszcll as King of Depression. The prize winners were: Mildred Sprague and Margaret Shoemaker for “Prosperity,” Anita Searle and Ruth Donner for “Depression.”
This year the Council of the College Girls' Club has compiled a book entitled, "Points on Polite' ness for Peru-giates.” This book has been prepared for the girls on the Peru campus, "who arc interested in making their lives radiant, who want to become more lovely, and desire to carry these ideals into the teaching profession.”
Mrs. Inice Dunning, sponsor of this club, is interested in every girl as an individual. She strives to develop among the girls a friendly attitude, cooperation, and love for one another.

The Young Men's Christian Association is an organization of the men of the campus who are striving to live creatively by means of Christian principles. The group feels that the ideals of Christ are still sound, and are applicable to modern problems.
One of the purposes of the “Y” is to develop Christian leadership, which will be a tremendous asset in later life. Deputation teams have been sent out to various churches and “Hi-Y” groups during the past year.
Nine members of the “Y" attended the Officer's Training Conference at Kearney this spring. All who attended were greatly inspired by Bruce Curry's lectures.
Peru Y. M. C. A. was represented last summer at the National Conference at Estes Park. So impressed was the delegation, that a permanent “Estes" fund has been established in the “Y" budget.
Many good philosophies were presented by the speakers at "Y" during the past year. These were usually followed by very interesting discussions.
The Y. M. has cooperated with the Y. W. in presenting several joint meetings which have been highly successful.
The regular meetings which are held every Wednesday night give the men a chance to pause from a busy life to think of the real purposes of life.
The Y.M.C.A. invites all men of the campus to participate. It desires not to be known as a group who have found a higher plane, but as a group who are striving toward a higher plane of thought and action. Are we merely to drift along thinking only of our local and immediate problems?
