tion to a mixed group. The choir has sung at chapel and at the Vesper service, in addition

tul because ot the loyalty and cooperation ot its members and because of Professor Harold
Roots patience and skillful direction.

Sigma Nu Sigma is the largest sorority on the Upper lowa campus this year. lt has not al-
ways been the largest girls' organization, but it has a line record of high moral standards.
The Sigma Nu Sigma sorority is one oi the oldest on the campus, being organized in the tall
of l924. lts main objective has been to promote social grace through informal parties, out-
door picnics, hikes, and college activities.
During Hell Week, five new pledges often wondered it being a member of the sorority was
worth the agony of obeying the actives. But after that one rugged week of initiation and the
impressive, candlelight formal initiation, they realized how much the sorority would mean to
them. The many parties and the tun that the Sigmas have had together gives them many
pleasant memories oi college days.

The freshmen thought the World was coming to an end-no classes. Upper classmen knew
when they heard the clamor of the bell at 7:30, it meant campus clean up. ln spite of the
tact that some had to wander to the "Nook', for the usual "coke," several broken rakes, and
leat tights, the Upper lowa Campus was finally tree of leaves. A Weary student body put
up rakes and retained in memory a spot for the fun and hilarity of the day.
Upper Iowa has tour hundred fifty former men students now in service. A small traction of
these men's pictures have been secured and are published herein.
As this Peacock goes to the publisher, sixteen Women are in service, twenty-three men have
been honorably discharged, two men are missing in action, and eight men formerly on the
faculty are now in service.
