Students interested in English as a field of concentration or support constitute the majority of the members of the Peru State English Club. The club was organized to further the study and enjoyment of the English language and literature. The English club published "Sifting Sands." an annual collection of students’ creative writing, under the editorship of Ruth Rathbun and Lynn Sailors.
This year the club also entered a display in the homecoming contest.
The English honorary fraternity. Sigma Tau Delta, also operated for the advancement in study and enjoyment of English. Candidates for the honorary had a 6.0 overall G.P.A. and a 6.7 in all English courses.
Sigma Tau Delta was the first national fraternity to be organized on the Peru campus. Since 1926. it has encouraged worthwhile reading and writing, and has promoted a spirit of fellowship among English students.
Both groups were under the sponsorship of Mr. Silas Summers.

Putting Hubby Through
The Student Wives Club was a unique organization in that its members were not students, but rather wives of full-time students at Peru State College. The object of the club was to promote community betterment projects. Some of the group’s projects this year included selling candied apples at the homecoming game, distributing Thanksgiving favors to patients in the Auburn Hospital, visiting the Nebraska School for Visually Handicapped, and acting as judges for the girls’ dormitories' Christmas decoration contests.
The club also provided opportunities for the wives to become better acquainted with each other.
The constitution was recently amended to include formal graduation ceremonies for graduates. The goal of each member was to earn a Ph.T.. Putting Hubby Through degree. Upon her husband’s graduation, each member was granted an official Ph.T.
