"When bigger and better yearbooks are made, Peru will make them," determined PERUVIAN Editor Wolter and Business Manager McAllister, fresh from the National Scholastic Press Association Convention in Chicago. So, in October, the 1938 PERUVIAN was begun.
The staff was not organized into a group of staff members each restricted to a single phase of work. There were no official titles bestowed on any staff members other than the editor and business manager. All were helpers, to do whatever task they were assigned. Dr. Ware, faculty adviser, was always behind the scenes to keep the ship on an even keel.
This year's PERUVIAN did become "bigger and better" both in content and arrangement. The faculty section donned the ribbon of informality, photographs illustrated every campus event, basketball action shots were obtained for the first time, the advertising increased, informal layouts were designed for every page, and it was all enclosed in the first padded cover for PERUVIANS.
PERUVIAN keys v ere awarded to Ruth Lytton, John Heck, James McAllister, and Frederick Wolter.

Campus activities of the past week were reviewed and coming events foreshadowed in a weekly feature, the Pedagogi-an of the Air, edited by Erwin Juilfs.
Alpl a Psi Omega members injected the dramatic element wjth ten minute playlets, one of which was written by Miss Ruth Alhberg, school nurse.
There became an apparent need for comedy relief and such a niche was filled by the ethereal "Rusty ' whose letters home were poured into the "mike'' by Robert Weber, in full regalia and a penny-colored wig.
The Peru hour had its moments of suspense, however. Times when cues were muffed, casts froze, tongues were tied and numbers revamped during anxious moments over the ether.
However, Announcer Snyder plugged on, sprinkling his programs with swing meet student opinion and ing classical twists to bring in the fan letters.
tand now Jerry Snyder, considers it all a thrilling hobby, folds up his microphone in an echoing studio after a successful season—b. u t t h d idea—the Peru hour still hovers about the Music Hall, with the hope that 1937-38 was only the be-gin-ning!

STAFF: Florence Martin, sponsor; Bert Hall, make-up editor; Harold Prichard, make-up editor; Norman Littrell, editor.
Cutting his journalistic teeth upon an editor's pen this year, Norman Littrell, chief of the staff producing the weekly Peru Pedagogian, took advantage of three lucky breaks.
One was the arrival of Miss Florence Martin, who took her place among the faculty but devoted her energies to sponsoring the "Ped" which she had so often put to press when a student at Peru.
The second advantage blossomed in the form of "ready, willing, and able" make-up editors, Bert Hall and Harold Prichard, and an eager crop of "cub" reporters who lived to "cover” every incident before it happened.
Fortune smiled a third time upon an old established factor—ingenuity in the Littrell personality. The "Ped" sported rocket headlines, personalities in the news, editorials which produced the desired results, and cross sections of campus opinion on a variety of subjects.
fin oldster at a linotype machine once criticized this year's Pedagogian staff: "Yup," he said, "the finest boys I've ever known—willing to learn and willing to work."
