A united aspiration toward Sincerity, Truth, and Dc-sign as symbols of the best in literature characterizes the work of Sigma Tau Delta. These aims find expression in “The Rectangle," the organ-ization's quarterly publication. A mastery of written expression, a high plane of cooperative friendliness, and a desire for better reading arc all implied in the ideals of Sigma Tau Delta. A stated intention to major in English, accompanied by a high scholastic standing in all college work, and the publication of a specified number of words in the form of articles contributed to any newspaper or magazine arc requisites for gaining active membership in this organization. The Phi Alpha Chapter, the first national fraternity upon our campus, was brought into being largely through the efforts of E. C. Beck in 1926. The national organization came into being in 1924 at Dakota Wesleyan University, at M i t c h e 11, South Dakota, having as its nucleus a local English club. Phi Alpha Chapter was pleased this year to entertain the organizer of this original club, Mr. Clyde Tull, and his distinguished wife. Professor and Mrs. Clyde Tull came to our campus in keeping with the fraternity's custom of entertaining out of town speakers at least once a year, and spoke at the spring initiation banquet. Both Mr. and Mrs. Tull, now of Mt. Vernon, Iowa, are recognized speakers and writers, especially in the field of drama. The Phi Alpha Chapter was privileged to make Professor and Mrs. Tull honorary members of Sigma Tau Delta.

The original aim of the organization was to enable the student to learn how to express himself in public, and to give the listeners something interesting and valuable. In keeping with this aim, the programs of the society are built around the various abilities of its members. Any talent along dramatic and musical lines, as well as literary ability, is given an opportunity for expression. In addition to the usual interesting Thursday night programs the Everetts this year presented several unusual features. Among these were: a tea given in honor of all the Faculty members, the annual Convocation program featuring a musical reading and a fashion show, and the Philo-Everett Tea Dance given April 13, in the High School Auditorium. The membership of the Society is limited to seventy-five. New members arc elected into the Society twice a year. Qualifications for membership are carefully considered. Page Seventy-three

Sigma Tau Delta Regular meetings of Sigma Tau Delta arc held every month, and at each meeting the organ i-zation takes up some phase of English. It especially stresses creative writing and offers an opportunity for constructive criticism and encouragement to all its members. This year because of the large mem-bership the usual Christmas meeting was expanded to original contributions. One meeting was devoted exclusively to drama and one meeting to work exclusively by the fall initiates. The February meeting, a Valentine party at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Smith, was featured by humorous bits of writing. One of the spring meetings was a “Mark Twain” meeting featuring the senior members, and to which the Peru Scribblers Club was invited. One of the outstanding features of the year was the publication of Miss Clark's poems, “At Christmas Time,” the sale of which was promoted by the organization. Phi Alpha was well represented in “The Rectangle” by poems written by Wilma James and Miss Tear, as well as in a number of other publications by different members. A play of the sawdust rings, written by Mr. Hayward was given by Pi Alpha as a convocation program, and Mrs. Jodcr has had a number of plays published during the last year.

This year also a one act play contest was held within the group. Looking toward the future, Phi Alpha is considering the publication of a book or books here on the campus, in which our Peru talent may find expression. Page Seventy-five
