Organized in 1922 "Friendship, Loyalty and Service”
The Deltas, the Deltas, the dear Delta Phi,
H e will he loyal to you.
you've given us pleasure, you’ve given us cheer.
You’ve given us friendship, ice’ll always hold deor
In the fall of 1922, a group of six girls discussed the possible need of a new literary society in the school. There were then only two girls' societies of long standing, Phoenix and Alethean. Because of their limited membership they were unable to take in many of the worthwhile girls. Aside front the good times connected with such a society, there is always the education received in co-operation, learning to carry responsibility, and developing executive ability.
The charter members were Catherine Josslyn. Florence Fen ski, Anne Hornebeck. Alice Holzer, Julia Linn, and Catherine Bachman. A few secret meetings were held for the purpose of deciding on a suitable name, drawing up a constitution, and other matters relative to launching a new organization.
Our faculty adviser and chaperons were Miss Marv Willcockson, Miss Stone, Miss Clausen, and Miss Blake. When Miss Stone left the school, Miss Bradbury kindly took her place.
It is to the patient and thoughtful advice and counsel of its faculty members that Delta Phi owes much of its success.
During the past year Delta Phi has done much that is interesting to the school and its members. Beginning with the first of the school year at Homecoming, Delta Phi welcomed back old members at a luncheon which was given at the Business Women’s Club. When the Christmas season drew near Delta Phi showed good spirit as a social worker by attempting to cheer the hearts of a poor family by providing them with food and gifts.
The society has had many interesting joint meetings with its brother society, the Industrial Arts. First a dancing party was held in the gymnasium of the Normal School. The second meeting was in the form of an old-fashioned box supper, held in the Libbey House. The third meeting was at the home of Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Karnes.
Literary programs arc the principal features at the meetings and very worthwhile programs have been given. This year the short story and the drama have occupied important parts on these programs. The values received from the discussions of these two types of literature were more than ordinary appreciation and enjoyment because the members had been presented with criteria for judging both forms of literary productions.
An outstanding social event of the year in the lives of the members, the returning alumni, and friends of Delta Phi was the spring formal. Each member was allowed to extend an invitation to a friend or another couple.
The last event of the year was the annual week of camping at Sunset Point.
As a group Delta Phi Society has taken an active part in school activities and in its social life.
The Normal vaudeville has been participated in each year by the society. Delta Phi took pride in being awarded first place in competition with the other school societies in the vaudeville of 1926. The stunt. “A Modern Girl In Fain-land.” which was put on by this society was written and directed by one of its members.
In girls’ athletics and other extra-curricular activities. Delta Phi has always been represented. Although not starring in debate, the society has always entered teams and endeavored to contribute to this school activity. The Girls’ Glee Club usually has a good representation from the Delta Phi Society.
When the New Voters’ League, a new school organization, was started and the Delta Phi girls backed and still are strongly backing it. The first president of the new society was a girl who had been president of Delta Phi for two semesters.
Delta Phi members have served on the Quiver Staff for several years, and a Delta Phi member has been secretary of the Social Life Committee.
Within the society circle, accomplishments have been made in studying types of literature. The short story, poetry, modem drama and humorous essays have had places on the society’s programs and have been of great interest and benefit to the members. Much earnest endeavor has been spent upon this major activity of the society with creditable results.

Organized in 1923
The Periclean Society was formed for the purpose of aiding in the intellectual, physical and social life of the young men of the school. Founded four years ago the society lias had a short but spirited career. Originally formed for the purpose of developing literary appreciation in its members the society is now active in athletics and forensics.
The aims of the society have been adhered to so closely that every member of the society is participating in some form of activity whether it be of an athletic or forensic nature.
The society has done much to bring out the best qualities of its members. Men who formerly had not participated in debate have taken part in inter-societv debate and as a result of the training have developed into some of the school's best deflators and orators. This society has always been well represented on the deflate squad. On the football squad Periclean has placed many of its members and has been especially proud of the membership on the 1926 squad. The captain of the 1926 squad is a member.
The representatives of the society on the basketball squad have made a very good showing the last few years.
This society always participates in every inter-scholastic activity. In 1925 it took second place in the inter-society debate contest. In 1926 three Periclean teams were in the field and the society won first place in the Inter-society contest.
In all inter-society athletics the society has taken a very active part. In basketball it has beat the purpose to give as many as possible an opportunity to play the game. In 1926 and 1027 second place in both contests went to Periclean. In track more men participate because of the varied type of endeavor. There have been good men for the discus and shot throwing, for low hurdles and the pole vault. Distance men represented the society in every event.
The society has presented a large trophy case to the school which will stand as a symbol of its collective activities.
The society has fulfilled well its purposes and with a full membership will continue to take a prominent part in athletics and forensics in the future. Although one of the youngest societies, participation in all events has marked its short existence.
Socially the society is very active. The year 1926-1927 was begun with a stag party followed by a joint party with the sister society, Gamma Sigma. On October 16, Homecoming dinner was given for the alumni.
The old order of the meetings has somewhat changed, outside speakers and entertainers have been secured for the meetings which have been very satisfactory and educational. Parliamentary drill has been emphasized by the society to improve the form of business meetings. Effort has been made to develop musicians within the society.
The society will begin its 1927-1928 year with a large and active membership; only five of the members will be lost through graduation.
Many of the athletes of the society will remain to take a place among the leading athletes of the school. Football, basketball and track will feel the support of the members of this society. Furthermore, every member of this year's debating squad will be back in school next year to hold up the Periclean’s good record in debate.
In the past we were successful in all the school activities that we undertook, and from all indications we should be still more successful next year.
