The Homecoming Play.
"A house divided" is a successful plan in the case of the Dramatic Club, which broke away from the Alpha Psi Omega fraternity moorings this school year to become an active dramatics-producing organization. Under the new system, Dramatic Club members are automatically pledges to the fraternity.
With the close of the summer session came the resignation of Professor D. J. Nabors, whose carefully constructed plans had skillfully guided the organization since 1931. Mr. Nabors resigned to take a position at Western State Teachers College at Ada, Oklahoma.
The fall season found the dynamic Professor Robert Moore sponsoring the organization. Mr. Moore's first play directed in Peru, "Through the Keyhole," played on Homecoming Day, October 16. Half a hundred hearty guffaws were recorded, due chiefly to Glema Meirs' "red-blooded" performance of a seventy-year-old snooper, Grandma Tierney.
The night of December 10, an awed audience witnessed a peek into eternity through the presentation of Suttan Vane's fantasy, "Outward Bound." A well directed cast breathed life into a group of souls lost to this world.

William Platenberg, in the manner of William Platenberg, drove the play along with varicolored moods ranging from white anger to chilling bewilderedness.
With an eye to spring light-headedness and audience appeal, Director Moore pulled the comedy, “Spring Fever," out of the hat to be warmly applauded on April 8. Typical college characters were played by typical college characters with a resulting smash hit.
Meanwhile, the Dramatic club itself had not been “twiddling." Property rooms were rejuvenated, lighting systems were improved, make-up and wardrobe rental scales were fixed. A choral reading group, under the directorship of Marie Wiencke, was instructed to chant “Congo," “The Highwayman," in professional tones.
Alpha Psi Omega members donned directors' caps to present Dramatic Club members in one act plays monthly, which included, “Finger of God," “Three's a Crowd," and “Flight," a Harold Prichard original.
Thusly, the Dramatic Club, evolving from toddler to a well-organized machine in the seven league boots of independence, has strode away to one of the most successful seasons in its history.
