The symbols of Sincerity, Truth, and Design have been embodied in the program of Sigma Tau Delta, the national honorary English fraternity, during the past year.
The printing press, purchased during the summer of 1935, has been the center of the fraternity activities. Members of the chapter have had opportunity of learning the mechanics of printing. The first products of the press were the invitations to membership and the programs for the fall initiatory banquet. Christmas cards in gold and silver were printed as a second project. The climax of the year’s work was the publication of the magazine of verse written by the faculty and student body of Peru. Thus the fraternity met one of its aims, to inspire creative writing and mastery of written expression.
iVriss Marian Marsh of the English faculty was guest of honor and speaker at the fall banquet. Her topic concerned Vilia Gather, the Nebraska novelist. The spring banquet was the occasion for meeting Dr. Louise Pound of the University of Nebraska, who spoke most interestingly. Initiatory services followed both banquets.
