Combining study of Christian principles with the enriching of life experiences, the Y.M.C.A. this year went forward with activities which tended to promote a closer relationship with God.
Joining forces with the Y.W.C.fl., the Y.M. helped make the Spring Training Conference held upon this campus in March an inspirational and beneficial experience for all who attended.
The association sponsored the second annual peace oratorical contest with entrance open to the entire campus.
Fellowship retreats were well attended and joint meetings with the Y.W.C.fl. successfully brought a masculine and feminine approach to the vital questions of life.
College professors were obtained as guest speakers, and members heard Dr. Coatney lecture upon sex. Dr. Miller on religious history, and Dr. Brown on the spirit of Christmas.
Darrel Randall, Wesleyan student, spoke to both organizations upon "International Relations and the Student.” Y.M.C.fl. chairmen were fortunate to persuade Mr. Randall to visit Peru upon his return from an all summer lecture tour.
In the Christmas season, the Y.M. and Y.W. held a candlelight service, which was partly broadcast over the Peru hour. Featured were hymns by the Perusingers and readings by Professor Robert Moore.
The cabinet received field worker Ray Kinney, who had just returned from China and obtained instruction in carrying out further activities.
A Gospel Team was organized and made deputations to various surrounding communities.
Each year the group sends delegates to the Rocky Mountain Student Conference, held at Estes Park, Colorado.

Playing host for the first time, Peru's Y.W. C.fl. with the Y.M.C.A. cabinet greeted over 150 representatives from Nebraska colleges who attended the Spring Training Conference held here March 18, 19, and 20. Desiring the proper conference "yumph," committees secured inspirational Dr. Harold Bosley, of the Iowa State Teachers College faculty, at Cedar Falls, Iowa, for the main speaker. Dr. Bosley was formerly a Peru student and is now active in the theology field. Commission meetings were held to exchange campus problems and personal viewpoints. The evenings were topped off with fun night tactics, dancing and Estes Banquet.
The original Christmas Pageant presented every year at convocation was sponsored again by the Y.W.C.A. using an entire girl-cast. The annual Chinese Christmas sale and a chili supper were held to raise the treasurer's report.
Creative leisure groups planned a timebudgeting week for the ’overworked'' college girl and pursued hobby habits in finger painting, knitting and leisure reading.
When glimpses of cabinet members flitted across "mob scenes'' in the Estes movie shown at a joint meeting, feverish unrest was created among members of the organization to attend the Rocky Mountain Student Conference held in Colorado every June. Plans were made for a record breaking delegation to represent Peru at Estes Park.
fl shelf of books upon international relations, peace and religion was presented to the Peru college library.
Mr. Ray Kinney, Evelyn O'Conner and Mr. Charles Hulac, field workers for the organization, were campus visitors and speakers.

Girls' Club was given a pep transfusion this year when President Blanche Freeman, along with an ambitious staff and Dean Dunning, pulled the proper organization strings, to raise a vital new fraternity, named Gamma Chi.
The club swelled its membership, increased its activities, and interested campus coeds from dormitory to residence halls.
Bi-weekly Fun Nights were held to give warblers a chance to shine in the community sing programs, those with a yen for intricate dance steps an opportunity to polish the sticklers, and everyone to enjoy good fellowship while licking ice cream cones.
