Kappa Delta Pi is an Honorary Society in Education, organized to promote a closer bond among students of Education as a science, and to enter into more intimate fellowship with those dedicated to the cause of teaching as a profession for which specialized preparation is deemed imperative. It aims to foster high standards of preparation for teaching and to invite to membership such persons as exhibit worthy educational ideals, sound scholarship, and adequate personal qualifications.
Beta Mu chapter was installed in the national organization of Kappa Delta Pi on May 25, 1925, under the able leadership of J. W. Tyler.
Every year Beta Mu chapter gives recognition to outstanding students. At commencement, it makes an award to some freshman with high scholarship. In May, all sophomores, whose scholastic standing makes them eligible for membership to Kappa Delta Pi in their Junior year, are entertained at a picnic at the Dutch oven. Twelve students have become members during the past year. Present

Alpha Mu Omega, the honorary mathematics fraternity, was established in 1927 under the direction of Professor A. L. Hill. This organisation is a branch of the National Council of Mathematics Teachers.
Membership in Alpha Mu Omega is granted to those students who have completed a required number of courses and have attained certain scholastic standards. Membership is honorary, active or associate, based upon attainments in mathematics. Each active member submits written solutions to two problems and a report on an optional topic.
Each year the club recognises two members of the Freshman class for excellence in mathematics. In 1934 this honor was awarded to William Plucknctt and Kathryn Sccgcr.
Other activities of the club include the donation of subscriptions to mathematical journals and magazines to the college library and maintaining Peru State Teachers College as an institutional member of the Mathematical Association of America. The club has sponsored some general convocation programs.
Meetings arc held bi-monthly. They have the three-fold purpose of developing and promoting interest in the field of mathematics, inspiring future mathematics teachers, and affording an opportunity for the discussion of subjects of mathematical interest which arc not presented in the classroom. Applications of mathematics in other vocations arc pointed out and illustrated. Demonstrations of interesting problems arc often presented. By these activities a better understanding and a deeper interest in mathematics arc obtained.

Beta Mu chapter entertained alumni members at a luncheon, and initiation of new members at Homecoming. This was a slight change in the plan adopted last year, and was made to accommodate visitors who could not remain for the evening entertainment.
The modern trends of education in the various departments of the college, have served as the theme of the programs at the monthly meetings. The December meeting was a Christmas party in the beautiful new home of Dr. and Mrs. Maxwell. The singing of Christmas carols around the fire' place brought a lovely evening to a close, but each guest received an inspiration, and renewed fellow ship for the year to follow. The society was very grateful to the host and hostess for their most charming hospitality.
