SIGMA TAU DELTA
“Sifting Sands,” Phi Alpha prose and poetry book issued biannually, appeared in December in a pert green and gold jacket. Contents were written by Sigma Tau Deltans and printed upon the chapter's own printing press. Three of the poems were reprinted in the “Rectangle,” national quarterly publication of Sigma Tau Delta. The spring edition of “Sifting Sands” held one of the largest lists of contributors ever used.
Two initiatory banquets were held this year. The fall banquet was held November 29, with Professor Robert D. Moore as the main speaker. At the spring banquet, March 14, Allan D. May of Auburn took the club on a word tour through journalism history.
Inspiration and stimulation for creative writing ejects from the fraternity's faculty members: Miss Esther Clark's poetry, Mrs. Joy Baker's writing experience and Mrs. Dunning's enthusiasm. Perhaps the greatest responsibility is accepted by sponsor Dr. George Smith whose wise counseling guides many a plot and whose "fish story,” "Little Mantrap,” was recognized by every member as the club's outstanding piece of literature.

No Sigma Tau Delta member on the Peru campus the past year has written the nation's "best seller,” or has been nominated to "The Pencil Pushers' Hall of Fame.” However, in a local way, such might be the case, judging from the enthusiasm for creative writing and worthwhile reading displayed by the talented members of the Phi Alpha chapter.
Highlighted in the “heap" of manuscripts written by those specializing in English are a one-act play, "Entertaining Angels,” written and directed by a student member, Maria Wiencke, for the club's convocation program, and "Morphine Sulphate, P.R.N.,” a playlet conceived by Miss Ruth Ahl-berg and presented over the Peru Broadcast.
