Ou a bright sunny September day, eighty-tour timid Freshman students ajipeared at Fayette destined to shore in the annals of Upper Iowa University. This was tlie class of 192(i. For au-hile they were the butt of many jokes but soon their presence and impoi-tanee was made knoun by the class serajJ. The wits of the Sophs were too dull to dupe the Frosh and attempts to win the scrap by cleverness failed, the Green I ' ap men winning easily. Winning the class scrap was not the only achie ement of the newcomers. They made them- selves known in nearly every iield of activitj-. Five Freshman men were on the footboU team and won letters. One of these men was elected to captain the team the following year. At the interclass basketball tourney, the Fi-eshmen easily came away victors. Two of our men made letters in this sport on the varsity team. In the spring, one Freshman made the baseball team. The following year saw the same standard maintained by the class in college activities. Si. of our classmen made letters in football, and the captain for the following year was chosen from our class. Two Sophs were on the basketball team and two on the track team. We again carried off the honors in the interclass basketball tourney. The class scrap was won by us in spite of the fact that we were outnumbered three to one. We were represented in the " Y ' s, " forensic work, glee clubs, dramatics, and The Collegian staff. In the latter, we furnished both the editor and the business manager. . s Juniors, we placed people in e very activity in the College — Troubadours, Glee Clubs, " Y ' s, " dramatics, forensics (one of our class winning the Shade debate), and the CoUcyitin. In the latter we supplied the editor. The 192.5 Pe. cock was also a product of the management of the Junior class. In the field of athletics the same standard was maintained. Five .luuiors nmde the varsity football eleven. One of these was chosen captain for the following year. In basketball two of our men were letter men, one being chosen as captain. Two of our men were on the track team, one being captain. Our class carried off the championship in basketball for the third time. The girls placed second in the interclass tournament. The fourth and last year of the class of 1926 is here. Thus far the same high standard of activity work has been carried on. The class is forty-four in number, one of the largest classes in the hLstoiy of the school. In forensics our class leads. Eight members are on debate teams. A Senior has won the Fawcett Oratorical Contest, another Senior the Women ' s Extemporaneous Speaking Contest. The Troubadours, Glee Clubs, dramatics, " Y ' s, " and Collegian staff have in tlieir uumlers some of our members. Our class has supplied three Y. M. C. A. presidents. There are four student pastors in our group. The Y. W. C. A. is well represented by some of our members. W e have again done our share in holding Upper Iowa on the map in the field of athletics. The famous conference football cham|is had for its real strength its line. In this line four Seniors were foremost in bearing the brunt of the play. These four huskies will be greatly missed next year. In basketball only one Senior made the team and he was its captain. On the interclass basketball tourney our team was forced to satisfy themselves with the consolation prize, as they were beaten in an overtime game by one point. We had hoped to win the honors for a fourth time but could not realize our ambitions. However, we have hung up a record, that is in winning three tourneys. The events of the Senior year have been many and delightful. The Senior play, " Lady Windermere ' s Fan, " was given March 17. It is with mingled ]ileasure and sorrow that we draw near our last year. The four years have been a real pleasure and Upper Iowa has become a home to us for always. M m m If m SENIOR NURSERY m G|Ai " E BuHLMAX BiRDiCK Fayette Z(i(: y. W. ! " •. A.; Y.

But this time we of the Soi)homore class will do a little differently. Those who were in school last year know the historj of this scintillating cla.ss nearly as well as we do ourselves. We are also too modest to tell you of the brilliance of our individual members, and then too we are assiuning that the faculty and student body are intelligent enough to see this for themselves. " We, the cla.ss of twenty eight, wish to take this opportunity to express our sympathy to the members of those classes who have gone before and to those who will follow in our footsteps. We sjTnpathize with them because through some ill fate they are unable to be parts of the cla-ss of twenty-eight. To the, pre.sent Freshman class do we especially extend our sympathy. Theirs is indeed an unfortunate lot ! They are just a year too late to be members of tliis most illustrious group of young people and they follow us much too closely not to be contrasted unfavorably with the class of twenty-eight. However, even their dark cloud is not Avithout its silver lining. Their misfortune is somewhat alle ' iated by the fact that to them is granted the privilege not only of attend- ing that school at the same time as the class of twenty-eight. Think of the honor and prestige that will come to them in years to com e when they are able to say, " I was attending U. I. IJ. when the class of twenty-eight was in .school! " Next to being in the cla.ss the greatest honor that coiUd come to them is that of following in our footsteps and walking in the jiaths that we have trod. Let them profit by our example. They will, at least learn not to get up and leave a progi-am when they cannot put on a better one. Let us again reiterate our condolences to those of you who are so unfortunate as not to be members of the class of twenty-eight. ml Ill THE PEACOCK m :f m m m [f m FRESHMEN W. re KiUerlain.

" The whole affair was a gruelling process. Picking out studies only to find a conflict, but after the first few nerve-racking days of college life, we became full-fledged college f reslimen — in our o m minds at least. Oh, we were gi-een, we ' ll admit that, but are not all young, growing things fresh, green and immature ? However with plenty of air, sunshine, warmth and tender care, the most puny specimens may be brought to a point of glorious health. So with the Fi-eshmen, who under the kind tutelage of the gi-acious Sophomores, were gentlj ' boosted over the bumps of the " Green Cap " stage, were healthy enough to put up a splendid appearance in the annual cla.ss scrap. This rather notable event was held October 17, and was a remarkable dis- play of brawn, brains and ditches, together with argiimentative power and phys- ical prowess. The genial Soph ' s after slipping one over on us, consented to allow the removal of our badges of infancy, so that we were soon able to walk around quite cockily and complacently without ha ng to make a ha.sty re- treat for a forgotten cap. Time passed and we became accustomed to the rules of the Blue Book, obeyed them to the letter, and devoured our lessons with the greatest zeal and energy. Yet we had to organize a class spirit. Tliis, however, appeared in the inter-cla.ss basket ball tournament when our Freslunen boys ba.sket ball quintet quietly, unauspiciously yet quite completely whipped and trod upon the dignity of the older cla.sses in the tourney. The green, growing things had developed, be- come beautiful and verj- active. The basketball five were so good that they rivaled the varsity team in splend- or. The Freslunen debaters stepped forth in modest glory and made the best showing of any such team of the past few classes. Thus the Freshmen have reached a state of comparative maturit.y, respected and admired in spite of our first futile attempts, and flagi-ant short-comings, appealed to for aid and support in college acti aties and were relied upon in time of need. We now feel that we are a part of the college even though the Seniors may feel that the college is going to the kids. We are a real vital part, quite as necessary as the Seniors, certainly as able as the Juniors, while we are superior to the Sophomores in tliat we ai-e al le to maintain perfect solem- nity and gi ' avity in chapel hour. In time all young things develoji and grow in stature and Avisdom — give the Freshmen time — that ' s all that ' s needed.

The only dual meet of the season was held witli Luther College who defeated the Peacocks on the local track by copping eighty -five and two thirds points to Upper Iowa ' s forty-eight and one third. The locals made the competition stiff and the meet interesting by winning six tirst places. Cliff Headington ran a pretty race in the half mile to win in 2 min. 9:4 sec. Luverne Kiple copped the 100 — yard dash with a mark of 10:2 seconds. Harold Heywood took first in the 440 — yard dash with a record of 54:2 seconds. El wood Volk won the discus throw with a heave of 111 ft. 2 in. " Bill " Tate outleaped all opponents in the high jump with a jump of 5 ft. 6 in. The U. I. U. half mile relay team had their own way to win easily in 36:2 seconds. This team was composed of Wliitney, Martin, Heywood and Kiple. Kobert McLease also won a letter by grabbing second place in the pole vault and second in the two mile run. Whitney, an all round star, took seconds in the high and low hurdles and in the 220-yard dash. Upper Iowa ' s showing was excellent and the sport should become steadily strengthened under the able tutelage of Coach Billings. illings (Coach), He sby, Martin, Kiple. ood (Captain).

Bigler collected a homer and two singles while Urenn helped himself to a circuit clout and a triple. April 17th Coe invaded the Peacock cajnp and left with a 9 to 7 Anctorj ' in ten innings. The blue and Avhite sluggers hammered the offerings of Bird hard and drove him from the box but could not stem the terrific hitting Kohawks. Borland and Bigler starred, the former getting a four ba.se wallop. Next follow a trip to Coe and Cornell with the locals dropping two close contests. Larson. Peacock mound ace, held the Kohawks to four singles and Avas in addition the hitting star witli two walks, a single and a homer that ac- counted for all the r. 1. r. counters. Larson was in rare form but loose fielding resulted in a 6 to 3 defeat. The next day we lost to Cornell 6 to 5. Henn and Hod.son jiitched good ball but received ragged support. Randall had a big day with a triple, a double and a single. ilay Sth Cornell submitted to the powerful slants of " Zebe " Larson and the Peacocks emerged victorious 2 to 1. Lar.son hurled the best game seen here in recent years, holding the CoiTiellians without a .safe blow until two w-ere out in the final frame. The big twirler also struck out tliirteen men. Bigler poled one far away with Randall on ba.se, thvts accounting for the Peacock tallies. The following Monday Upper Iowa dropped a li.stless game to St. Thomas 7 to 2. Dooley drove out two singles. lay 12th the Tutors invaded Fayette and clinched the game in the ojiening innings on Peacock misplays.

The Upper Iowa record of five ' ictories and one conference defeat represented the best sea.son in yeare. Coach Doraian labeled his team the best gi ' id combination he ever trained. " Doc " has turned out a large number of winners too in his thirteen years at U. I. U. The initial encounter of the season was on Sept. 27th with the sti ' ong St. Thomas team at St. Paul in a non-conference tilt. The Peacocks gave e denee of their calilier by pushing over a touchdown on the Irish but the Cadets tied the count 6 to 6 when they scored after recovering a blocked jnint. The St. Paul sports writers dubbed Dooley, " Iowa ' s Demon Plunger " . The first conference tilt was captured from Central on the home field by a score of 22 to 14. The Peacock.s displayed great power but appeared to weaken in the final quarter when the visitors aerial attack accounted for their brace of touehdo •ns. Captain DeLong. Urenn, Dooley and Keller w-ere the stars of this game. The Peacocks really found themselves the following Friday when the St. Ambrose line was riddled to ribbons before the .smashing of Dooley and Kellar and Upped Iowa severely drubbed the conquerors of Simpson 27 to 0. This defeat, one of the worst administered in the Iowa conference all season, oc- cured on Oct. 23rd. DeLong, Urenn and Krough were a bulwark in the for- ward wall while the whole backfield stai-red. Homecoming day came on Oct. 31st and in a field of mud the Peacocks again romjjed away victorious, tliis time overcoming Iowa We.sleyan 13 to 0. " Bill " Gutehes, fleet freshman end, caught Keller ' s pass and raced twenty yards for a touchdown in the opening minutes of play, while " Red " Li •ingston cinched the game in the final quarter by lugging back a punt thirty five yards for a second marker. Urenn and Volk were the line .stars. Gutehes played a great game at left end. Presenting a lineup sprinkled with subs and injured veterans I ' pper Iowa staged a wliirlwind finish to vanijuish Ellsworth College 21 to on Nov. 7th. Dooley ' s plunging sparkled while Livingston, diminutive half back, furnished the feature of the contest by tearing around left end with perfect interference sixty-five yards for a touchdown. This was the longest run for touchdown from scrimmage, recorded in Iowa college football for the 1925 sea.son. The season ' s only setback occurred on the unlucky 13th of November at Cedar Falls 14 to 7. The Tutors counted the winning marker on a fluke when Horton grabbed up a fumble and raced fifty yards to the goal line. Urenn and SuUivan played a whale of a game in the line while Liring-ston stai-red on the offense. Then in the big Luther game at Decorali the following week, the Peacocks fought their way to the sweetest victory of the seas on, elincliing a place at the top of the conference -with a decisive 12 to wan over their old rivals. " Red " Livingston was a sensation with runs of forty-five and fifty-five yards. Urenn, Volk and Pierce were demons in the line play while Captain DeLong got off (Ill ii iiiiirv kie " nilly for I ' .

Many honors were heaped tijion the Peacocks by the sport writei ' s of the state in reeo rnition of their brilliant work. Smith of the Des IMoines Capitol rated TJrenn at center, Captain DeLong at tackle. Volk at guard and Dooley at jtya qiiarter back on the first all-conference team. Krongh at gitard, Sullivan at Ml end, Keller at fitllback and Living:ston at left half were placed on the second M team by the same writer. Sec. Taylor of the Des iloines Register gaA ' e Volk and Dooley all conference positions and placed Kellar and Urenn on the second team. Coach Dorman gave a banquet at the close of the sea.son in honor of his team and it was here that Earl " Duke " Kellar, hard hitting fullback, was elected to ca]itain the 1926 team. Letters were awarded to but eleven men a.s none of the .substitittes got into the lineup sufficiently to win the coveted U. I. . The student body and faculty showed their appreciation by raising a fund and purcha.sing gold footballs for the individital members of the championship team. Coach Dorman was also honored in the same way for his great work in turning out a title winner. Those who made up the regular eleven were a.s folloAvs : Bernard Urenn of Plymouth, center, whose calling of signals and outstanding play in the center of the line was the cla.ss of the conference ; Captain John DeLong of Waterloo and Neil Pierce of Brazil, Indiana, tackles, Avho were bears in their positions and the former ' s punting of high class: Elwood Volk of Independence and Levi Krough of Plymouth, guards, who were stone walls of defense against the op- posing backs; Charles Sullivan of Clermont and William Gutches of Osage, ends, whose ability to grab ball carriers back of the scrimmag-e line made them feared and whose interference on end runs was brilliant ; Roger Dooley of Waterloo, quarterback, who ranked second in conference scoring and wa.s al- ways capable to make substantial gains against any team ; Eugene Harvey of Fayette,right half back, whose interference aided the other backs to make long gains; Fred Livingston of Cresco, left half back, whose spectacular end runs were the sensation of the conference ; and Earl Keller of Terril, fitllback, whose hard tackling and terrific line plunging could not be stopped by any team encountered. Robert Fox of Fayette won a manager ' s letter. Coach Dorman deserves a large share of the credit for the team ' s brilliant success as his was the responsibility, woriy, and niapjjing out of the style of attack which brought Tapper Iowa once more into the limelight in the national college .sport. " Doc ' s " plays were puzzlers to opponents all season and in honoring the great team we must stop and recognize the imtiring efforts of ; ' ll i our wonderful coach who made the " Fighting Peacocks " the champion team that thev were.

Following tliis jaunt Doe ' s cagers met with a rather disastrous home stay in two defeats in three starts. EUswoj-th took home a one-point victory over the Peacocks and Central a 26 to 22 win in an overtime tilt. Iowa Wesleyan M ' as again defeated by the loeal warriors 19 to 13. Donnan had been ha dng great difficulty in getting together an aggregation which worked well together and had been using a complete Freshman team alternating with a team of upper classmen. The Peacocks left on their .second trip January 21st and lost the first encounter to Buena Vista 26 to 22. Captain Urenn scored sixteen points for Upper Iowa in this game and came through for eight more the following night when the Peacocks dropped a 17 to 13 decision to Western I ' nion. The western trip was wound up with a sweet victory over Ellsworth 31 to 11. Final exam week the Peacocks seemed to recover from their slump and turned back the invading Simpson five with the short end of a 16 to 12 coimt in a game featured by close guarding. Two days later the Peacock five played great liall and took the famous Penn team into camp 22 to 20 in a whirlwind finish with Smith and Larson in the stellar roles. A trip to Oskaloosa and Indianola the .same week was not so succe.s.sful as Penn emerged victor 43 to 39 in a game featured by brilliant basket shooting while Simp.son walloped the locals 37 to 23 in a decisive fa.shion. Following this ti-ip the Peacocks tangled with their old rivals, the Tutors and lost 18 to 13 when Morrison of the visitors got a " hot wrist " in the final period. This defeat was followed by two more, one to Luther 23 to 19 at Decorah and the other 37 to 12 in the worst loss of the season at Cedar Falls. The Peacocks seemed to play inconsistently and could not find the loop when opportunities presented them.selves. The final contest of the season found the Peacocks at their best and the blue and white basketeers outplayed their old rivals the " Nor.skies " in every department of the game to win handily 27 to 20. The team work and ba.sket shooting was the be.st of the sea.son and the rare form displayed by the Peacocks gave promise of a better season in 1927. Captain Urenn was the outstanding player on the Peacock team being among the leaders in indi dual scoring in the Iowa Conference as well a.s performing well in his capacity a.s one of the best guards in the conference. Urenn will be the only letter man lost to the squad for 1927 and the sho Wng of the freshmen this year makes the future look rosy for U. I. IT. Upper Iowa lost six games by a margin of four points and in addition were also defeated by one and by five points. Thus eight close losses were suffered by the locals. Despite the fact that the locals lost a large number of games they played every team in the conference on even terms. |} THE PEACOCK m ; : [f f m NORTHEASTERN IOWA DISTRICT TOURNAMENT Class " B " IJoys High School Teams The CImss ■ ' !

Out of a fast field of eight teams re])re.sentiiig- the best section of this part of tiie state, Keystone emerged ctorio s over Orange Township in the final game by a 29 to 22 score. The winning team was a well-balanced aggregation displaying sparkling team work, clever dribbling and a deadly eye for the hoop. Captain Heckt the leader of the Keystone team was the clcA-erest dribbler and fastest breaking forward of the liiiiiney. .lonlt his running mate was also a good shot and Ileitman and Teeklenlmrg at center and gnard were the tallest men entered, their height being of great advantage under the basket. Mussman at standing guard was a strong defensive player. Captain Weigle of the Orange To nship team was nndnnhtedly the best shot in the tourney as he scored twice as many points as any other player, getting a total of fifty-five jioints in three games. Klingaman stellar guard of Orange Avas also an outstanding player. Another man who deserves special mention is Captain Van Koten of Ilansell who was the M ' hole show for liis team. On the whole the touniey Ijrought together a fast group of teams and the competition was exceedingly close. Kelton of Decorah and Rapp of Ames acted as the officials of the tourney. Due to the fact that the girls sectional tnurnanuMits were booked for the same dates Upper Iowa had to content herself with the one tourney this year. Last year an in ' itation tourney was held but the state official deemed that such a meet woidd interfere too much with teams taking ])art in the state elimination tournaments.

A. has worked with great zeal aud under the supervision of Miss Brown has completed the year with much success. The fall sports were much enjoyed. The girls on the W. A. A. Board had charge of the various sports. They were short distance hiking, long distance hiking, hockey, hygiene, tennis, and volley ball. The winter sports included rhythm, floorwork. swimming, and basketball. Rhythm was one of the newer acti ties and was well accepted by the girls. It has been the custom during the la-st few years for the W. A. A. Board to send out in dtations to the high .schools of the neighboring towns requesting their participation in the tournament to be held here and we hoped " that we might be able to continue this. However, the sectional -vdnners of the Boys ' Basketball Tournament entered the Northeastern Iowa Tournament hei-e and owing to the conflict we were unable to have the Girls ' Tournament. On the evenings of February 15th and 16th, the girls held their Interclass Tournament. This year ' s Sophomore girls were the champions of last year ' s tournament. lany of the old players are still in the cla.ss and their ability to play has not at all decrea.sed. The Sophomores had fine team work and beat the Seniors by a score of 15 to 1. The Freshmen, in the follo -ing game played the Juniors and won by a score of 19 to 3. Both of these teams could also boa.st of several good players. On Tuesday e ening. the teams were more evenly matched and made the games more interesting. The Juniors secured third place by beating the Seniors 5 to 3. In the final game, the Sophomores defeated the Freshmen 13 to 10. The Sophomores were well desei-ving of the honor wliich they won. On January 20. the Physical Education Department gave a demonstration. The first was a drill in floor work consisting of eighteen Freshmen and Sopho- more girls. Miss Brown had charge of this group. Then followed some appara- tus work on the stationary hoi-se. About ten girls participated and each did their part very well. The third feature was the Indian-club Diill in wliich fifteen girls took part. The drill was very good and all kept in perfect order • nthout interruption. Six overalled farmerettes carrying lanterns and wearing large hats performed an interesting dance wliich awakened the Scarecrow. Tliis limber specimen also gave an interpretation of a dance much to the enjo nent of the audience. The clog dance was a very active part of the perfonnance. The color scheme of the dancers was especially delightful. The final number was a scarf dance performed by four girls. The ease and grace with which this wa.s executed was a veiy delightful part of the iirogram. Several of the features were entirely new to the spectators and so furnished an especially entertaining evening. The W. A. A. Board has also brought about a reorganization of the Honor Point System. The girls who attended the convention found that we were the only ones who had not standardized our system. In order to be recognized by other colleges we are going to prepare the rules for the new system so- it will be ready to go into effect next year. The spring activities take place just after spring vacation. They include baseball, tennis, swimming, hiking, and track. Track is also a new sport for Upper Iowa but has created much interest. Durihg commencement week there will be a " Sports ' Day " when all of the activities will be represented. Activities ' m ' THE PEACOC K || | STUDENT COUNCIL 111 Swartley (President).

It is a debating club, organized for the purpose of stimulating forensic work among the upper classes. jMembership is limited to twelve, and good scholarship is an essential for eligibility. The meetings during the pa.st year have been of two types, — some being debates, and others discussions. Some of the most im])ortant questions taken up this year were : Resolved. That the United States should join the World Court. Resolved, That the literary societies on our campus shoidd l)e abolished. Should there be uniform marriage and divorce laws?

Tlieljerrics of the I ' liiversity of SIkiuhh ' nt liiifroiii. .Missouri, recently con- cluded a series of experiments with hit iic " ' miiidrending iiiaihine, llie informograph. Prof. Theberries has always beeu opposed to the practice of cramming before an examination, and with this new instrument he is able to tell exactly what thoughts occujiy the mind of a student after a siege of cramming. The instrument has been so [lerfected as to give a tyi)ewritten record of its work. Students taking various courses were subjected to the examinatioi] and the results all went to show that there was a general mix-up of all tlie subjects in the minil of the student at examination time with the ennihasis falling on the one closest at hand. The following were some of the results: No. 1. — Kecord taken the night before a History examination from a student taking a course in M. and I. history, chemistn ' , Spanish, algebra, and education: Napoleon Boueparte pro- tected Fort Espauol from an attack by General Hypothesis on the fifteenth day of school vaca- tion. Martin lAither tacked his elements to the conjugational ring-stand in the case of peda- gogy. The Franks were a tribe of super-saturated .school teachers whose linear forms decom- posed with mucho gusto. No. 2. — Record taken from a student (girl) taking a course in biology, English literature, music, home economics, and swimming: The Elizabethan period was marked by three stages of development, the low pitch, the breast stroke, and the boiling point. Milton, although blind in one cell, fricasseed the swan in an inherited f!at. Bacon was parboiled for ten counts by the jack-knife Modernists. No. 3. — Record taken from a student (football player) taking a course in American liter- ature, German, chemistry ' , and radio physics: Oliver Wendell Cooper wrote ' ' The Amplifieatiou of the Flying Tackle. ' ' William Culleu Poe was born at Station H.SOj. Patrick Henry said, " Ach Himniel. der audio-frequency is precipitated. " Van Dyke Holmes finished his end run in an aquatic trough. No. 4. — The fourth test, however, brought a diiferent and unexijected result. The subject was a bright young fellosv wiiose ancestors for generations back had been noted for their poet- ical inclinations. This young maji like his forefathers was also destined to be a poet of no mean ability. During the week preceding the test by the informograph, he had heard so much exhortation from the various professors concerning the evils of cramming that he had refrained from doing any of it himself and the superfluous advice was almost the entire content of his thought. . s a result of this and his poetical nature the record took the form of a poem as follows: The present-day professor Deems it duty number one To depict the art of cramming As a crime that all should shun. .And I have often wondered As I ' ve heard them sling their line, If it doesn ' t hurt their conscience To exchange their lies for mine. It doesn ' t seem to phase them though To con.stantly remind us That the ' ' Satan ' ' in our foremost plans Should at once be put behind us. But viewing it in different light I find a new solution. I ' 11 bet a dozen berries It ' s to help the in.stitution. They know it ' s human nature To do just what we shouldn ' t! And if they told us all to cram They know we ' ll learn it all at onee And cram in all we find, But in a case of ' ' have to ' ' Will call a little back to mind. And after all that ' s better Than sitting like a dunce And trying to think back eighteen weeks And write it all at once. So when a prof says, ' ' Don ' t you cram ; ' ' Somewhere dow-n in his heart, He really says, " Go to it, boy. That ' s where I got my start. " H. G. m m m m m PI KAPPA DELTA Dickman. Galbretll.

We cannot think of f oreusics n ' i t h o u t thinking in terms of Pro- fessor Swaney ' s untiring and unpaid services. The College via the ' ' Foren- sic ' ' page in the Pea- cock expresses gratitude to Coach Swaney. Nei- ther do we think of forensics or Professor Swaney without thinking of that forensic frater- nity, Pi Kappa Delta, especially as it carries I)ractically half of the forensic budget for U. I. U. Forensics at U. 1. L . include debate, oratory. The men ' s contest finds almost a dupli -ate of the women back a second while Mr. Robert Smith in oratory failed to place. There is an abundance of material for next year that will have experience so in prophe- sying for next year we believe sincerelv that great opportunities lie in store for us. Professor Swaney has been able to produce the teams that he has in spite of the fact that he has been away so much, by the help of the coaching statF comprised of Frieden, Robert Smith, and Hoyt. The two latter have taken a great many of the details from Coach Swaney ' s shoulders. Pi Kappa Delta has pla.ved no small ])art in the forensic progi ' am tliis year. Since the time school started a continual drive has been made to secure funds sufficient enough to send a worthy representation to Estes Park. During the .vear students will remember the very high class program sponsored by P. K. D. featuring Mrs. McVeety, a concert soloist. Later in the year, a peppy home talent entertainment was staged. P. K. D. is the largest in the history of the local chapter and a leader among the other chapters in the United States. During the Spring vacation of 1920 the great aspiration of P. K. D. will be attained. Eight members of Iowa Eta Chapter will be participating in a great national forensic tournament. Professor Swane.T will not attend. Those chosen to represent our chapter are Karleton Grain, Oratorj-; Edith Frieden, Orator ' ; Harriet Barrett and Henry Galbreth, Extems; Wilkins and McElroy. Women ' s Debate; Robert Smith and Claire Ho.vt, Men ' s Debate. U. I. U. is proud to have a chapter of P. K. D. capable of .sending a delegation of such great promise to a national meet. Forensics in 192o-lil26 have boomed. It is now among the very top of the college assets. The credit goes first to Professor Swaney, .second to Pi Kapfia Delta, ond third to a group of talented, hard-working, and deep-thinking students. C. P. H. contest and extemporaneous speaking. Debate has li e e n given sufl[ieient space under that head so this page will center more around the orato- rical and extempore divi- sions. U. I. V. was very ably represented by lioth men and women. The women ' s contest was held at Central Col- lege. Mildred McXoul was president this year, thus necessitating her liresence also. At this contest Miss Barrett won second in extern. Miss ?

Professor Swaney organized a debate class, giving t vo hours credit, «iiicli met every Wednesday throiigliout tlie first semester. Textbook work was pursued until the question came; then there was a lively period of scrimmage practice. Debate after debate developed silver-tongued and straight thinking debaters of Varsity calibre. Promising material reported for duty. In the numbers were to be found one two-year experienced woman -who also held a first for extempore work. Among the men were six with a year or two of experience as debaters, orators, and i n extem. Talented new recruits with some experience included nine women — all seniors but two — , four upper classmen, last, and possibly greatest, seven freshmen of remarkable ability. Leaving the campus let us follow our debate coach ' s steps as the teams under his generalship made their flying attacks. The first one struck Luther with a two-man, inexperienced, upper classmen team. Luther knew that Burget and Scofield had been there. Hall and Martin formally opened the season on the home platform. There was no decision liut a goo l beginning was made on that 20th of January. Finishing touches were applied until the 12th of February. On this date a similar attack was made on State Teachers. The coaeli this time employed Webb, Loughrey, and McNaul for the invasion, while Wilkins, McElroy and Bailey failed to repel the invasion on home territory. State Teachers, nevertheless, still fears U. I. U. Linguists. Five days later Coach Swaney with McNaul, Frieden and Barrett lost the count to Iowa Wesleyan while Wilkins, McElroy and .Tones — star hecklers — out -heckled the Wesleyan delegation that visited U. I. U. The strategy used throughout the year is evidenced in the trip for all four of the travelers dropped down to Central College where the President of the Women ' s Oratorical Association (McNaul), the U. I. U. Orator (Frieden) and extempore speaker (Barrett) fulfilled their respective duties. Home was the place of abode for our coach but two days before a long series of attacks were made on colleges in Western Iowa. Buena Vista, Morningside, and Western Union were met in a series of very interesting and high class debates. Eoyal Smith, Eobert Smith, and Claire Hoyt upheld the ' name of IT. I. U. in foreign territory. No decision was carried home, but a few complimentaiy remarks from Dr. Dan B. Brummett and College Presidents and Coaches of opposing teams softened some of the tinge of defeat. Very ably did Headington, Lyford, Rawson and Kierou uphold the glory of IT. I. u. at home obtaining the decision in both debates. The 3rd of March Coe met IT. I. V. Freshmen in a dual debate. The home team, Hetzel. Davies, and Schneider carried away the tie in a meaningless vote with an abundance of favorable opinion. Bing, Dickman, and Galbreth lost the audience decision by two votes. Still their match as Freshmen has not been seen. After the season is ended and a summary completed, let us remember: 1. Audience decisions need interested and intelligent audiences. 2. Every individual in debate was given practical experience. The rule " Survival of tlie fittest ' ' does no longer hold. 3. The debate record is the largest in history. 4. A full time paid coach is needed. C. P. H. ifl THE £ PEACOCK m m f W ' m m ' m m m ifj If [f m j; I wo xrrn I, i C ' %- m ' ' " - ' ' ' ft ' ' ' ft " ' V ' . " ' - , - ' •■ J- ■£, i ii ' ..4?

OFFICERS First Term Second Term President Mildred McNaul Amy Christian Secretary Marjory Daskam Dorothy Koch Treasurer Bessie Oelberg Bessie Oelberg The Aonia Literary Society was organized in 1S57, one year after the founding of the University. At first only six girls formed the nucleus of this society. They chase as their purpose the following ideas: " To establish correct principles. To cultivate a love for truth and high development of mind and gi-aces, and freedom in the use of parliamentary rules. " These ideals have been realized throughout the life of the Society. At first the girls met in each other ' s rooms but later the southwest room on second floor of College Hall wa.s appropriated for their use. In 1901 the Philo- mathean Society imited them to share their hall on the second floor of the library building and since then they have been brother and sister societies. Some very interesting programs have been put on by the Aonias this year, for there is much talent along musical and forensic lines that can be worked into the programs. On October fourteenth the Philos and Aonias entertained the college at a moxae party in the Cozy Theater. During this year there are over sixty girls enrolled in the society. The society •nill not rest on this year ' s laurels but will strive each year to make an improve- ment over the la.st. PHILO.MATHEAN Zink, Galbi-cth, Hartong, Grays, Sli.rtin, •|s-, ,-, ISutl.r.

The danger is past. Judging from all evidence, in a short time rock Ijottom footing Mill be found. " Give us meat, " is the cry coming forth from the throats of thinking Philos, " we have been subsisting long enough on milk. " The purpose of the Literary Society is defined in terms in a real challenge of effort. The art of blacking the face and speaking pieces wa.s acquired back in the grades. Possibly such a thing as an inter-society debate may be scheduled. Would we dare to think of conducting college debates, oratorical and extemporaneous speaking contests through the societies? It is ridiculous to suppose that a ba.sh- ful Freshman or cultured Senior could speak from a society room platform and learn to use his head and forget his feet. Let us turn a.side from what might happen and consider liriefly what could actually happen. Students are demanding high class programs. The kind that ' s worth 85c matinee. Even a spelling contest is not to be considered lightly. Of course Philos can debate a topic of more significance than the traditional " short rat, long tail combination vs. long rat. short tail racing through a knot hole.

Such concessions as " The Rocky Road to Dublin, " " Cave of the Winds, " " Freak Show, " " Wild West Show, " and a fortvme-telling booth were found in various parts of the gjnn. Later in the evening an interesting program was given and various games enjoyed, after which refreshments were served.

There were twelve charter members, three faculty acb-isors, and three associate members. President J. P. Van Horn had charge of the installation. The purpose of the Sigma Tau Delta is that of promoting the mastery of written expression encouraging worth while i-eading and fostering a spirit of fellowship among thase specializing in English language and literature. The Sigma Tau Delta is a practically new national fraternity which was first established at the Dakota Wesleyan University. Its growth has been rapid and Upper Iowa University memliers are ]n-oud to be able to be affiliated with such a fraternity. There are ten degrees of membership available upon election and merit to all those entitled to them. First Sophomore rating, requiring an " A " or " B " average in Freslunan English. They are associate members and have no right of suffrage and cannot wear the badge or key. Second, Junior rating necessitat- ing the completion of sixteen quarter hours of work, scholastic rating within the upper third of the cla.s.s and publication in student news-papers or else-where of a minimum of one thousand words of original matter. This degree gives the right of suffrage and entitles the holder to wear the pearl jeweled badge. Third- Senior rating needing at least thirty-six quai-ter hours of English, scholastic standing within the upper fourth of the class and the publication of at least three thousand words of original material. The emblem of this degree is the amethyst .jeweled badge. The next seven degrees are for graduate members. The official badge and key is a closed book of gold bearing through its middle as the stem of the design a fountain pen, on the right of the stem the Greek letters Sigma Tau Delta and on the left a torch of which the flame shall be the jewel to designate the degree of the wearer. It is believed that this fraternity, similar to the Phi Beta Kappa, of the East, shall be a great benefit not only to the indi idual members but to the entire college and shall be one of the vital forces in detennining the schola.stic advance of the school.

Conventions show ns wliat others expect of ns. We ail move about in a ffrouii. We are not in every sense a unit, but in many senses we are a fraction. Thus being an integral part of a larger whole, we must conform to the interests of the larger whole. Conventions make this ea.sy. When we intend to perform an action, Ave do not first have to weigh and consider the factors making up the situation, nor the probable result on others, if there is an established convention. We do it in the way it has alwaysbeen done in, and may assume it is the way wliieli everyone expects of ns. The conventions are the composite habits of the individuals of the group. Like habits, conventions may become a handicap. Just as we perform habitual acts Avithout thinking Avhy Ave perform them, so do AA e do the couA entional thing Avithout questioning the reasons for such conventions. And not only that, but Avhen some person conceives of a different Avay of acting, a more conA enient and plea.sing one perhaps, he hesitates to put it into action. He invents num- bers of faults that people may be expected to find Avith the ncAv Avay. He has become so accustomed to obey a rule that he hesitates to establish a neAV one. It is Avell knoAATL, that for many yeai-s all boys wore short pants and that some time back boys began to appear in long pants. We all noticed it and re- raai-ked about it, and then most dismissed it as another change in styles. All, hoAvcA ' cr, could not dismiss it so easily. I remember hearing a matronly person discussing the question of long pants. To her they seemed utterly improper and impractical. Around the cuffs of long pants mud Avould collect in prodigious amounts, they added nothing to comfort, and boys did not look like boys Avhen they Avore long pants. NoAv of course it is Avell knoAvn that trousers of either kind are not Avorn to make boys look like boys. I f that Avere the purpose of long trousers some might be jiTstified in their objections to them. The primary purpose of trousers is for clothing, and as to practicality of either long or short trousere, it is doubt- ful if that wa.s considered by either innoA ' ator who introduced the neAv practice. It is the boy Avho lends character to the trousers by association; the trousers do not give character to the boy. Long pants Avei-e objected to only because they changed a long established custom. ] Iany people dislike to see old customs and conventions set aside largely be- cause they mistake a way of doing a thing for the doing of it. They think Avith the matron that clotliing the boy in short pants is clothing him, Avhen in fact short, pants are only a Avay of clothing him, since he can also be clothed by other means. People who are training their minds by schooling should learn to think. They should acquire the ability to distinguish between a way of doing a thing, Avhich is a conA ' ention, and the doing of it, Avhieh is the abiding element. fo THE PEACOCK m m m m Not only that, but ha -ing thought of a new way of doing a tiling, they should have the as.surance to test it. Many have desires to do an old thing in a new way, but hesitate for fear of the opinions of others. Because many mistake the con- vention or the custom for the act, they dislike the pei-son who dares to innovate. Conventions and customs, however, are not to be lightly disregarded. They have been proven .satisfactory by long usage. We do know that if we go about a thing in the conventional manner, we may feel fairly well a.s.sured of the out- come. Before we are ju.stified in disregarding a convention we must be sure that it accomplishes the desired deed. It is not enough that it is ' a new way. It must be a new way to accomjilish the same thing or sometliing better. The faddist stands at one extreme and the ultra-conservative or reactionary at the other. The former is anxious for a change. When he sees .something new he is won by it and wishes to adopt it at once, even at the expense of all demonstrated values of the old if necessary. He would overturn all that now exists to rid us of the imperfections of our sytem. The reactionai-y would retain all that now is. He would content to let evils remain only that our present status may be left intact. To him the way of doing the thing is pai-t of the thing itself, an integral part in fact. Somewhere between these two lies the safe grounds for the progi-e.ssive or the conservative. They are largely the same person looked at from different sides. The one takes notice of proposed changes, and if they promise to result in the desired act tries them. He does however, cherish the end itself. He does not lose sight of the aim. His distinction between conventions and the abiding element, result, is clear. He examines closely all conventions and if in any one of them he sees a flaw that would be removed if the old method M ' ere replaced by the new, he favors the new. That is the conservative. He is characterized by holding fast tn what is good in the old. The other view let.s us see a person who looks over conventions, a.s existing and if he sees a flaw, he tries to invent a new method. He is the progressive. One finds an invention at hand and tries to make it hannonize with what is already satisfactory, the other finds what is out of harmony and tries to invent something that will harmonize. Both hold to what is good in the old and are willing to recognize the new. Unless the student learns to do this he is mis.sing the most valuable part of his training. Without this ability to discern, he cannot become an originator, a leader. It is the faculty of making fine distinctions between conventions and realities that makes him progressive without being regarded a.s dangerous. It is a.s dangerous to worship conventions as to ignore them. There is no more virtue in ignoring them than in worshiping them. It is best to place empha.sis on clothing the bov. It makes no difference whether it is in long or short pants. I. D. ' 26 ' S] CLASS OF 1927 ERRATIC EXPLOSION CHICAGO, ILL., MAY 8, 1936 UPPER IOWA CLASS OF 1927 HOLDS REUNION AT CHICAGO MAY 7, 1936 After nine .vrars uf luve. lubur and luxury the members of the class of nineteen hundred and twenty seven of Upper Iowa University met at the Blackstone yesterday. Amid fond embraces (among the women), vigorous handshakes, and never ceasing exclamations, all those present exchanged personal notes and information which kept the company in constant excitement from six thirty o ' clock until after the midnight hour. The reunion was the result of a consultation over long distance telephone between Gladys McElroy Gray in her New York office and Bessie Oelberg in Seattle. Mrs. Gray conceived the idea and im- mediately got in touch with her friend in Washington who, she felt would lend assistance in the great undertaking. This took place in Mnrch; in A " ril all the invitations had been sent and plans were fin- ally completed. Dr. Hoff, once the advisor of this cHss. now president of LTpper Iowa arranged a special radio program to be broadcasted from station X. Y. Z. at Upper Iowa University on that evening, for the benefit of those attending the re- union. Gerald McElroy, president of the class in ' 26 acted as chairman for the evening and Mrs. Vesta Cahill recorded all the regular proceedings of the evening. After a four-course dinner had been partaken of an in- foi-mal meeting was held. Lenora Bennett reported on her work as librarian in the city library in St. Paul, where she has been ever since her graduation in 1927. MC ELROY NAMED EDITOR CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE " Labor omnia vincat " is the mot- to of Gerald McElroy who in 1926 was honorable elected editor-in-chief of the college weekly. Through his earnest efforts and patient labor he succeeded in making the Collegian a paper worthv of national attention. -After his college days were over he continued his literarv work until in 1935, partly through the influence of his former historv professor. Dr. Swanev. he accepted the much cov- eted position of editor-in-chief of the fbirofo Dailn Trhv ' e.

JUDGE HEADINGTON TO HEAR FAMOUS CASE Miss Lois Hall who, last Septem- ber was suing Mr. Merritt Strana- han for breach of promise, is again putting forth all her efforts to secure some settlement of the affair. The case has become very complicated due to the fact that Mr. Stranahan has announced that he expects to wed Miss Elizabeth Cornell in June. Miss Cornell, it seems who was a house mate and very dear friend of Miss Hall ' s during their college days became acquainted with Mr. Strana- han during the time of his frequent visits to the house. Miss Cornell re- fuses to interview a reporter and present her views in the " love tri- angle " , which will be brought before the hearing of Chief Justice Head- ington at the next term of court. CRITICS VIEW NEW WORK OF AMERICAN ARTIST After years of work and study, Mrs. Donnafred Hoff has produced one of the gi ' eatest paintings that the world has ever seen. " The painting is as near perfect as human hand has ever painted. Even the work of Andrea del Sarto the famous painter of the fifteenth cen- tury has been surpassed. " The painting is now in the art gallery in Paris where critics from all over Europe go to see it and proclaim it a masterpiece in the field of art. BONITA FINCH WRITES OF WORK IN S.

It never grows monotonous for every dav brings new happenings and higher aspirations. It is with intense jov and yet with a sense of pity that I grasp the hand of a young negro and whisper a word of encourage- ment to him : or sing lullabies to South African motherless babies.

Henry Lotz efi m THE PEACOCK LEAGUE Heretofore the " church on the hill " has had one Ep vorth League comprising both high school and college students. This year at the suggestion of Rev. Clyde E. Baker two Leagues were organized, one for each group. The first Tapper Iowa College League to be distinctly known as such held its first election of officers on Sejitember 27, 1925. The officers took charge of the meetings immediately and outlined the program for the year. The officers were formally installed at the evening service of " the church on the Hill " Xovemlier 1, 1925. " Shortly after their election the cabinet members entered njion a membershiii campaign. The drive lasted two weeks during which time one hundred and three membership pledges were secured. This number ajij roximates thirty-seven percent of the student body of 1 . T. The new membei-s atid the new pastor. R v. John D. Clinton, were tendered a reception by the charter members of the organization after a joint " Y " meeting October 15, 1925. Speeches were made outlining a program and the aim of the local chapter. The meetings have been chiefly discussions of " topics of the day. " Among others the foUo ' ing topics were discussed : literature, missions, music, art, patriotism, the negro problem, and manhood and womanhood. These topics were considered nth a view of discovering their significance in the develop- ment of the more abundant life. Nearly every .Sunday there has been some special feature such as: instrumental and vocal selections, readings, and slides. The members have shown great interest in the meetings, the average attendance be approximately sixty-five per cent of the membership. The League ha.s been a self-supporting organization. Expenses have been met by an offering taken at each service. It could, if necessaiw, provide all its own leaders. It provides its ow to|)ics, outlines its own program, and carries out that program. The College League is making a distinct contribution to College life in that it pro-vides a program which offers fellowship, inspiration, information on vital subjects, and practical training in leadership. m Y.

A era Decker Y. W. C. A. After the election and installation of the new officers Yhieh took place in March, 1925, the old and new cabinets enjoyed a Cabinet training and picnic, at which meeting the new cabinet members were acquainted with their work for the coming year. Then nine of the cabinet girls attended the Cabinet Training Conference at Cedar Falls in April, which meeting was held under the leadership of such women as Talitha Gerlach, Erraa Schurr, and Miss Aitchison. The Y room, which was started by last year ' s Y cabinets, was the first project of the year. Koom Xo. 1 in College Hall, redecorated and furnished for an Association Eoom, was dedicated with a fitting program in April, 1925. It has since proved to be a most useful room for a student rest room, and an ideal place for the weekly devotional meetings of the two associations. The one fault of the room, its lack of heat in extreme weather, will probably be remedied before ne.xt year by improvements in the heating system. The college year was begun in September with the usual " Big Sister " movement, and a " Big-Little Sister " party was one event on the program of the first week of school. The Campfire and the Y. il. and Y ' . V. Reception were also events of the first week. Membershij) campaign and recognition service were part of the program for October. During this month, the State Student Convention was held at Des iloines and the fifteen students and faculty members from Upper Iowa who attended, gained much iu.spiration from such leaders as Dr. Bruce Curry, Dr. Robert L. Kelly, and others. As a result of the thinking at this convention, the delegation compiled a questionaire pertaining to campus thought, which was filled out by the students, and from which data was acquired, by means of which the students as a group hope to solve some of the problems of campus life. The distribution of Thanksgiving baskets, the White Manger sen ' ice of toy gifts, the bazaar and sale of Christmas cards, the pageant — ' ' Maiden Over the Wall ' ' , and the Colonial Costume Party were some of the projects of the next four months. We were very fortunate this year in being privileged to entertain Miss Talitha Gerlach, the Xa.tional Secretary for our region. She led a chapel senice. met with the cabinet girls, and came in personal contact with all the girls at a picnic supper, where they came to feel the influence of her admirable personality. The budget for the year was easily met, anil we have used the funds for National Board dues, an appropriation to our sister college in India, a scholarship for Wong Sie Ciong — our little Chinese girl, local expenses, etc. World Court, Outlawry of War, Campus problems. Vocations, etc. have occupied the minds of the students in the devotional meetings, as well as programs by the faculty, outside speakers, and others. The girls have cooperated well in working on committees, and any success that we may have attained is due to the Y group as a whole. .As the year draws to a close, the Cabinet cannot but wish that they might do the work over, in the light of their experiences, but that is always true of any work. We have enjoyed the year ' s work together as Y girls, and hope that we may have helped in a small way, at least, to bring worth while aims and activities to the campus. m -ll !!

The souud of the triumph was heard and the proeession, led by the Queen, approached the throne, the flower girls scattering blossoms in her path. The Queeu was crowned and seated to enjoy the great festival given in her honor. First Old Greece honored the Queen and her graceful maidens made their offering of flowers. There seemed to be confusion within the group as a little boy and his dog entered. The boy was crying and was apparently lost. To make him happy the gypsy maid danced and the little boy begaji to enjoy himself. Being i leased with the occasion the gypsy tried to beg alms from the group — she was indignant at their refusal but made the best of things. When the gypsy had finished her dance the dog did a dance which the people appreciated very much. The Japanese, Indian, and Scotch did folk dances and a demure Quaker maid was finally coaxed into doing a quaint little dance. The farmer then entered and found his boy. The Chinese, Dutch, American, and the Roses do their part. The festivities close with the May Pole dance and the recessional. CHARACTERS Queen of May — Helen Kelly. Maid of Honor — Irene Gemmell.

THE PEACOCK m Wh ' :mm% m m m This year Uld Motlier Xature seemed to bear a gnulge against lis and we had a great deal of snow just before our festival. However, she relented at the last moment and it warmed up for the actual occasion and the boys shoveled the snow from our football field. The homecoming festivities began Friday evening, October 30, with the Zeth-Zeta play, " You and I " which w ' as given before a crowded house of past and present Upper lowans and their friends. All members of the cast showed excellent character portrayal and readily adapted themselves to the roles they played. " You and I " was given under the able leadership tion of Miss Helen Lucille Uay, head of the department of oratory, to whose capable leadership much of the splendid success of the play must be attributed. At ten o ' clock, Saturday morning the stunts began in the gymnasium. The Seniors were the first to display their originality. A bold sign at the front of the stage announced the stunt and the cast of characters. The onlookers sett led down, expecting a rare bit from the Seniors, and they were not disappointed. All of Shakespeare " s greatest characters met in one great drama. It is a tragic affair in which Juliet loves Hamlet but finally accepts Julius Caesar to the pleasure of her father. Shylock. Next came the Junior stunt, " The Modern Cinderella, " based on the well-known fairy taJe. Several popular songs added spirit to the performance and Miss Mildred Brown, as the fairy godmother gave a beautiful dance. The next stunt was put on by the Sophomores. Deacon Burgct symbolizing the Sophomore class had a dream in which the evils of college life came to torment him. PJspeeially prominent were such terrors as " Swaney ' s True-False tests ' " , " Blind Dates " , Physical Training " , and the ' ' Class Scrap. ' ' The Freshman stunt, coming last, was in the form of a musical. The curtain rose on the treble clef, with many notes. Out of tliese notes heads appeared, then voices were heard. The crowd was entertained for several minutes by popular numbers, — featuring the " Fresh- men " in a parody on " Ah! Ha! " The Homecoming parade at one o ' clock, an established and customary affair, was especially bright and colorful this year. The first was the Y. W. car decorated in the blue and white of the organization. Two of the most outstanding floats, very eridently close relatives of our old friend " Leapin ' Lena, " were the D. C. U. and H. U. L cars. The W. A. A. was represented by a group of girls in IT. I. U. sweaters and gym bloomers carrying symbols of the various sports. All the other organizations had floats symbolic of their organization. The floats assembled at South Hall as usual and the parade went from the college down to Washington Street, on to Main, and so on up through the town. After the parade the cars turned up to the college again for the game. The next event was perhaps the most thrilling of all. On a muddy field — so muddy that the players were soon blackened beyond description and almost beyond recognition, we won from Iowa Wesleyan, 13-0 w-hich made our third conference victory. Sunday, the concluding day of our 192.5 Homecoming, Dr. Updegraff, President of Cornell College, gave a splendid address for our first convocation. His sermon was on " The Place of Religion in Education " and on this subject he presented much interesting and valuable information. There were a great many alumni here for Homecoming and despite bad weather, was a notealile success. § THE i PEACOCK " 1B| S M m m m m m m m m SEPTEMBER Date EVEXT Featuring Things Said And Done Comments Tue. 15 College Camp-Fire Prexie and the " Y " Friendship is Kevnote of U.
