JHilligan Collrsc LOCATION AND HISTORY 1 f 1 ILLIGAN COLLEGE is located in Carter County, in that section of Tennessee which once formed part of the long-defunct State of Franklin — a commonwealth whose brief but romantic existence was terminated in a battle fought onh- a short distance from the site now occupied by the college grounds. Two miles to the north, at S ' camore Shoals, tlie American -olunteers who fought the decisi ' e battle of King ' s Mountain started on that famous march which, in the opinion of competent historians, was the turning point in the American Revolution. After Sycamore Shoals and the days of King ' s Mountain came Daniel Boone and Da -y Crockett. Boone ' s original trail passed only a few miles west of the college ; and at Boone ' s Creek, about eight miles south, there is shown to this da - a mighty oak tree with the following inscription carved upon it; " D Boon Cild Bar. " The site of Milligan College, with its superb view of the majestic Buffalo Mountain and the silver waters of the Buffalo Creek flowing just below, w ' as early chosen as an ideal spot for an institution of learning. Before the Civil War, a school was established, and after the war between llie States, this school was given the name of Buitalo Institute. In 1880 a young man from Kentucky by the name of Josephus Flop- wood came to Carter County in search of a place to found an institution of learning built upon the broad foundation of Christian culture — a clean heart and a clean life. Buffalo Institute was turned over to him, and in 1882 the old name was changed to Milligan College. For twenty-three years, from 1880 to 1903, President Hopwood directed the destinies of Milligan College. In 1903 President Hopwood relincjuished the Ijurden he had borne so long- to one who had graduated under him and who was associated with him for years as a teacher — Henrj ' R. Garrett. President Garrett ' s mantle fell upon another young man, Frederick D. Kershner, a native of Maryland and a graduate of Kentucky University and of Princeton. President Kershner took charge of the college in the spring of 1908, and his resignation took effect October 31, 1911. The Board WMW- ' WMMM, immediately elected to the presidenc) ' Dean Tyler E. Utterback, a native of Kentucky, graduate of Kentucky Unix ' ersitw Central University of Ken- tuck}-, and Columbia University, New York, a man of large experience, both as an educator and preacher. At the close of the year 1912-1913, President Utterback ' s resignation, which had been offered one year before, was accepted, and E. W. McDiarmid, a graduate of Bethany and of Hiram College, was elected president of Milligan College. After one year of fruitful work. President McDiarmid was called to a higher work, and James Tracy McKissick was elected president. James Tracy McKissick was born near Mt. Pleasant, Maury County, Tennessee, April 19, 1874. He attended Broadview High School until his sixteenth vear, when he went to Hillsboro High School, Williamson Countv, which was then taught by the now lamented William Anderson. After finish- ing High School and teaching a year, he went to Texas and attended South- western Normal College, Italy, Texas, and graduated from that school in 1895. The following fall he entered Add-Ran Christian University, then under the direction of Addison and Randolph Clark, and was graduated from that school in 1897. His first pastorate was at Marshall, Texas, where he served eighteen months, and resigned on account of ill health, and located at Marfa, West Texas, where two years were spent. From Marfa he was called to the Centra] Church, Weatherford, and there he preached for three and one-half years. Feeling the need of a more liberal education, he resigned and entered Texas Christian University, receiving the M. A. degree in June, 1904. The following fall he entered the College of the Bible and received the classical diploma the next June. He then went to Harvard and spen t a year specializ- ing in New Testament Greek and Church History. After some months of evangelizing he accepted a call from 1 7th St. Church, Nashville, and was there more than four years. He was called to be secretary of the Tennessee Christian Missionary Society in April, 1911, and continued in this work for more than three years. He came to Milligan in August, 1914, following the labors of Josephus Hopwood and his splendid successors. He stri -es to main- tain the same ideals which have characterized Milligan life. 10 -WWW ' WMMM jFacultp JAMES TRACY McKISSICK PRESIDENT AND ROBERT MILLIGAN PROFESSOR OF PHILOSOPHY BELA HUBBARD HAYDEN DEAN OF BIBLE JAMES MILLER PROFESSOR OF ENGLISH CAMERON DONALD DAY PROFESSOR OF SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS WILLIS BAXTER BOYD PROFESSOR OF EDUCATION AND HISTORY DEAN OF MEN ELMA E.

He has passed his college career without being pierced by Cupid ' s dart. The Frederick D.

Eph is a Virginian, a ' ilson Democrat, and a one-horse school-teacher, but we can forgive him for all this, as he has determined to live in blessed singleness, or single lilessedness, which- ever it may be. From childhood " Slick " has had Senatorial aspirations, but we are afraid his fondness for croquet will keep him from wearing the Senatorial toga. As an orator Eph is the equal of W. J. Bryan.

John is the " Beau Brummer ' of our class, and takes especial pains to be agreeable to the ladies. He came to us in our Junior year, being a gradu- ate of McLean College preparatory department. He is very careful to assume a dignified de- meanor and stately step in the presence of the faculty. John has been rather morose this year, and some attribute it to the departure of a young lady formerly of our class. 15 SSfMWWKM NATHANIEL C. T. BURCHFIELD " Lord.

We do not know the at- traction out there, but he says that his love is universal and there is no danger.

He is very fond of athletics, but the only use that can be made of him is a " rooter, " for the child can not play. He spends most of his time amus- ing the ladies. He says that the saddest words of ton.gue or pen are these : " You have got to quit smoking. " 17 WWMW-MMM Senior Class History ELL, at last the day to which we ha ' e looked forward has come — graduation day. It is no longer a dream of our minds, but a reality. For four long years we have been preparing for this day. Our teachers ha ' e given us their best in endeavoring to fit us for true success in the world. They have tried to implant in our minds the fact that pure characters are the greatest attributes we can possess, and it is our part now to uphold the high standard of our Alma Mater before the world. One by one, the members of this class have come from far and near into these classic shades. The Xineteen-Fifteen Class consists of fi ' e members taking literary courses, one from the music department, and two from the business department, making our class number eight. The ]iistor - of this class the fall of the vear 1911, when twent} ' hopeful boys and girls came to Milligan to begin their college careers; and, to be really truthful, we did indeed possess the verdant minds and the St. Patrick appearance usually and rightfully attributed to Freshmen. Before we had been here many hours we were seized bv that heart-rending and soul-thrilling disease — homesickness. Soon the period passed when " Home, Sweet Home " would bring tears to our eyes, and we were busy in learning the college routine. The reception by the Sophomore Class further dispelled whatever gloom remained in our hearts and filled us with a sa age longing to get even. When we had been here only a few days, our upperclassmates took great delight in cjuestioning us, for they percei ' ed that it was a psychological study of vast importance to discover the unj lumbed depths of a verdant Fresh- man ' s mind. Li the course of time other pleasures awaited us. Hazing, of course, is strictly forbidden, but some of our tormentors seemed to take great delight in heaving a poke of water over our transom when we were in the act of retiring. The Sophomores and Juniors took especial pains to instruct us concerning the ignorance of the faculty and the (i -erbearing disposition which they maintained toward tire student body. The class soon organized, electing officers as follows : Nat Burchfield, President : Mary Campbell, Secretary 18 TH Bu.-H U l S " Sn: Ci s. i iy ' A ' -s vc u s S ?7 " r f3 , j?er o1 y - e»; . - h }ir f - i)h u by t)c h cfT je ' - M H O UCL " ' iM ' M-:p :!l -K:;SS M and Treasurer. ' e enjoyed yevy mucli the social e -ents of the year, our own class socials being still fresh in our minds. Our belo -ed Profs exercised a great deal of patience and wisdom in managing us. and by the end of the vear we were firmly convinced that what we did not know was not worth knowing. Next year the Class of ' 15 reassembled on the old campus, no longer fresh and green, but as imposing and self-important Sophomores. The class was reorganized with an enrollment of si.xteen, and the following were elected as officers: ' . G. Forbes. President; Clyde Hendri.x, ' ice-President : Ruth Vatkins. Secretary, and Alary Campbell, Treasurer. A social comnfittee was also appointed, consisting of J Iae Na -e, Ruth Watkins. ] Iary Campbell, Clyde Hendrix. and Myhr White. ] Iany social events of the year were enjoyed by the class, especially the receptions given in our honor by the Juniors and Seniors. Our wisdom that }-ear surpassed that of Socrates, and our philosophy put the ancient sophists of Greece to shame. Social science, religion, economics, ethics, and all of these great questions were settled by the conclusi ' e. inclusive. exclusi -e, and preclusive arguments which we set forth. Yea, truly, Solomon in all of his wisdom was not as wise as one of us. Upon our return to college in the fall of ' 13, dire disaster was in store for us. We found that on account of the course being raised some of us would not be able to graduate the next year. The class was reorganized, however, with a membership of eight, and our number was augmented con- siderably by the arri -al of Mr. John Wonderful Prather. a member of the ' 13 Class of McLean College. Officers were elected to the tune of Mary Campbell. President : Myhr White, Vice-President : John Prather, Secretary. Of all the e -ents of the year, none w as enjoyed so mucli as the day we took our dearly beloved Seniors up to Watauga River. The day was ideal ( ?), and we crowded it with fun, but old J. Pluvius proved unkind and we returned home drenched, but happ}-. We paid the entire expenses of Commencement exercises b) ' the presentation of " The Rose o ' Plymouth Town. " which was the greatest success along the dramatic line that Milligan has ever known. Our history is drawing to a close. As Seniors, we have enjoyed with dignity the special privileges which liax ' e been granted to us, such as going to town hen Prexy said we could and being allowed to go to Sunday school and church and to cut a class occasionally without threats of expulsion. We have enjo} ' ed these pri -ileges, and it is our desire as a class to record a special 19 WWMMMM vote of thanks to the faculty for the said privileges. We also wish to remember our Profs for booting us over so man) ' clitBcult places, and, as we are about to pass out, we see and acknowledge the many mistakes we have made. Our organization this year is as follows : E. C. Buck, President : Myhr White, Vice-President ; John Prather, Secretary and Treasurer ; Nelle Brumit, Poetess, and Nat Burchfield, Prophet. AVe, as Seniors, feel the responsibility resting upon our shoulders, and it is with a considerable amount of pride that we point to the fact that every male memlser of our class is a member of the Bachelors ' Club, disdaining to mingle with the common horde which gathers weekly in Hardin Hall. As there is an end to everj ' thing, so the history of the Class of Nineteen-Fifteen, with its successes and failures, comes to an end. With great hopes for our future in the world of work, and with a steadfast belief in our ultimate success if we follow the teachings we have received, we close this history of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Fifteen. Myhr White, Historian. 20 m ' mWWM ' M Senior Clasfi ropijrrj) Chicago, III., May 20, 1935. Miss Nelle Brumit, Nashville, Tenn., Dear Nelle : Doubtless this will be a surprise to you, Init I am going to tell you some of the happenings that ha -e occurred to our old classmates of the Class of ' 15 at Milligan. Wliile I was standing in an office in New York the other day, my attention was attracted by the click of a typewriter as some one pecked industriously away on the keys. I glanced up, and in so doing I recognized a face that carried my wandering thoughts back to college days at dear old Milligan, Just then the fellow raised his eyes from his work and began softly to croon a sweet melody that carried to my mind recollections of having listened to the harmonizing of that voice with others, time after time, at Milligan. It was none other than Ellis Hill, who, you will rememljer, acted so faithfully in the capacity of Secretary to the President in 1915. He recognized me immediately when I spoke to him, and insisted that I should stop for a friendly chat. You can well remember, no doubt, the ability which he always displayed in the " gab " line, and he soon showed that he had lost none of his power as a talker. It had l)een twenty years since I liad met any of the old bunch of ' 15, and of course I was anxious to hear anything that he might have to say. in regard to them and their positions in life. Hill was working for an employment agencv as stenographer, and he told me that quite often a familiar name came in, and among the numlier he had noticed the names of several members of our class. Ephraim Buck had been one of the first to send in his ajiplication for a •position in the big city. The high and mighty aspirations which he had cherished since childhood, of earing a senatorial toga and gracing the Senate Chambers at Washington, had anished like a snowball before a July sun after he had participated in two elections in Virginia ( in l)oth of which, it is needless to say, Eph came out at the little end of the horn), . fter gathering his scattered thoughts together, Eph came to the realization that life is a sad 21 WMMiMMMMM realit) ' , and not composed of air castles, and he started in to climb the ladder of fame One kind of work succeeded another, and in turn he became a news butch on a train, a solicitor for the Satiirihiy Evcnincj Post, an advance agent for a theatrical company, and is now engaged in the work of stage manager at one of the downtown theaters, and if I cared to see him I could find him at No. 425 Broadway. A thought suddenly occurrred to him and he rummaged hurriedly through the files close by until he found what he wanted, and then he told me that Katherine Burrus was also engaged as orchestra leader at the same theater. He related how the romance with poor Joe Crouch was broken up over a misunderstanding, and that while in search of fame in her chosen profession, she had strayed into little old New York. Hill could recall none of the addresses of any others of the class, and so I left hiiu happily humming away, " It ' s a long way to Mary Lou ' s, but my heart ' s right there. " Oh, yes, I forgot to tell you. They were happily mar- ried about three months after Ellis graduated, and no ' li ' e in a little apartment in Harlem. I sauntered leisurely along a fe ' w blocks, when I decided that I needed a shave, and so went on a hunt for a barber shop. I had hardl}- gotten inside the door when I heard the piping voice of Nat Burchfield as he called out, " Next Gentleman! " Fate had been unkind to Insect, so he told me. You will recall that he was one of the most enthusiastic members of the Bachelors ' Club in 1915, b ut, would ' ou l)elie ' e it, that old rascal is now ()ne of the worst henpecked husbands you ever saw. The different branches of science had each Ijeen exhausted by Nat in a ' ain endeavor to find liis life work, when 1)} ' dire necessit) ' he was compelled to learn the art of manipulating the shears and razors that adorn barber shops for his daily sustenance. Aly business affairs called me to Chicago, and so I dropped into the uptown office of the New York Central and purchased a ticket for the west. As I was resting snugly in my seat that night preparatory to retiring, who should stick his face through the door but old Myhr White? There he came, a ponderous mass of flesh, his head bounded on th.e north Ijy a Pullman conductor ' s cap, on the south by a large double chin which merged gradually into a vast expanse of coat and, and on the east and west by a pair of ears which looked for all the world like the extra signals on the rear end of a freight train. His joy was unlimited when he saw me, and I soon realized that though he had gained in size physically he was the same old Myhr 22 wWMmM White, and that his lieart was still in the right place. As soon as his work would permit he came Ijack and joined me and we had a good long talk which lasted until the wee small hours of the morning. He had kept in pretty close touch with the difl ' erent members of our class and was able to give me some very much desired information regarding our old friend Bradley Shepherd. Bradley was tlie owner of a garage in Boston, and one of his favorite sayings is, " Boys, I could make a lot of money here if I had not been educated in a school where character building stood first of all. " Bradley has also supped from the spring of matrimony in the hopes of finding the water of happiness, but it seems that he made a poor choice, and his life is being made miserable Iw his spouse, who is at present one of the sufi ragette leaders in Boston. To Mvhr I must also attribute the good fortune of securing your address. He had noticed in the society columns of the Johnson City Staff, to which he still subscribes, that you were soon to leave the mountains of East Tennessee, wliere you had so long stri ' en to impart knowledge into the minds of the )-oung American hopefuls, and become the bride of a noted e ' angelist. 1 know that by this time you are very anxious to know what I am doing. Nelle, yi u kn(iw at school 1 was always more fond of sleep than work, so I learned tlie art of tripping the " Light Fantastic Toe " and am not boasting when I sa}- that I am one of the best in the city. My brain is beginning to fag in this effort to inform you of some of the h.appenings of our old classmates: the lights of the city are beginning to go out one Ijy one; I hear in the distance the stroke of the clock as it solemnly tolls the hour of one, and my hand can hardl) ' creep across the paper. Trusting that this ma_ ' reach you before tlie marital ' ows are performed, and that I may recei ' e a speedy reply, I l)eg to remain, Yoiu " old friend, loiiN Prather. 23 fMM:WM ' MW- Senior Class Poem Year after year has taken flight.

But trials have come, as come they will. And thin our ranks have grown. Each year from us were torn Dear classmates one by one ; but still We rally ' round, and with a thrill Yet find we are our own. Dear classmates, through life ' s shifting ways, Remember Milligan still, Her every dale and hill. May our happy college days Be a gentle memory, whose rays Will light and cheer at will.

We, as a class, do not care to repeat ourselves by reiterating old e ' ents with which you are already familiar; we only want to give you the history that you have not read. Begin with us on October the sixth, nineteen hundred and fourteen. On this date the class met for the purpose of electing officers and planning future work. Officers were elected and air castles were built. My ! the possibilities of such a combination. House- keepers, preachers, orators, lawyers, and doctors ! ! Such is this class. In our studies w ' e ha ' e held the banner to the loft) ' breezes; in atliletics the) ' asked us how we did it ; in housekeeping they asked us how we kept our rooms so neat, and how we made such good biscuits; in preaching they asked us where we stole such sermons; in oratory they asked us where we found such thoughts and how we deli ' ered them so eloquently ; in law they asked us whence came our wisdom, and in doctoring they said that ' e kept the best of pills. To all these questions we gave just one answer, " vVe worked at the job. " But near the close of this victorious year the duty as well as the pleasure of entertaining the Seniors fell upon our shoulders. This was a problem soon solved. We knew that they loved to be with their kind, so one bright sunny morning in April we escorted them to the fishery where the) ' could walk about the pool and look at the suckers. But let us not lose sight of the aim of tlie Class of 1916. Next year we expect to return still united as a class, and when our Senior ) ' ear shall have closed we will then be ready for real service in the world of affairs where true manhood and womanhood and strict attention to duty mark the pathway of the really successful. 28 CT L II DUIIUAIir ju I nuriur L u o Class of 1917 Colors: Purple and White Flower: Violet Dfftrcrs ETHEL GA ' ER : President MOZELLE KIRK Vice-President MARK KIRK Secretary M.

I ' m going to tell you all about the notori- ous baud designated by that illustrious name Sophomores. We are not exactly what you might call a band of " singing Christians " on their way to " Beulah Land, " but e are making rapid strides toward that coveted prize called a sheepskin and the distinguished name Seniors. Our cups will be overflowing with happiness when we can clasp those precious scrolls in our trembling hands and say, " Alas, thou hast eluded me for years, but now that I have thee in my grasp thou shalt never lea -e me. " That will be glory, indeed, when we can look back througli the dim and shadow} ' past and wonder how we ever rode safely over the rocky shoals that mark the course of every college student ; how we ever survived the persecution and abuse that marked our Freshman days: ho ' we bluffed it through the Sophomore year and arrived at the three-mile post a full-fledged Junior, and then, last and greatest, bloomed out into a full-grown Senior. But enough of this folly. Let us come back to earth and a description of this illustrious band of students. I ha " e said they were illustrious, and indeed they are. There are the two young students by the names of Mutt Huie and Lloyd Crouch, members of the Owl and Barnvard Chillis, and to hear them hooting and braying from their second-floor windows in the wee small hours of the morning you would be compelled to think that you were not reclining peacefully on one of Mee Hall ' s cozy mattresses, but that you were lying out in the open in close proximity to somebody ' s farm where a donkey was holding a conference with some of his feathery friends. Sad it is, indeed, to relate that our Honorable and Exalted Madame President, Miss Ethel Gaver, is inclined toward Athey-ism. She is one of the most adroit in the art of passing out winning and captivating smiles that has ever graced the campus of Milligan College. But talk about smiling — Um ! Mee ! — you ought to see Mark and Aline in the Geometry class. They assemble right after dinner in Prexy Mc ' s classroom, and for about twenty minutes they sit and smile and talk and talk and smile and smile until you would think that trul}- invitations were in ordei for the big event. This couple can ' t be beat when it comes to true friendship to each other and also to the entire student body. 32 Larry Zimmerman is another important member of the class. He doesn ' t know it, but I heard one of the young ladies say the other day that " Zini " reminded her of one of these big dolls that will close its eyes when it is laid down. He is the acknowledged heart-smasher of the class, and, would you believe it, he thinks he can take all the girls ' hearts at once and smash them, but of course he can ' t, because, well, because he can ' t. I guess we might as well admit that " Bob " Rawls is the pet of the class, because everybody likes " Bob, " and it was through her influence that Pete Trusler was persuaded to join the class. Mien JNIozelle Kirk first waddled across the campus we all thought of paraphrasing Tennyson ' s Brook — " Men may come and men may go, but I go on fore ' er " — but " I ' ll swan! " she has been more trouble than anybody in the school, and has about worried the postmaster to death, and then poor John Hardy has grown grey headed sitting up nights trying to think of some way to please his ga} ' little friend. As we come to our journey ' s end, there comes to our mind one whom we our proud to claim as ours. This is none other than " -V. Huggins. " I am not prepared to say anything about his " Huggin " ' qualities, but as a cartoonist and preacher lie can ' t be beat, and we Sophomores sure are proud to know that for the next two years we can claim him for our very own. We look ' on him as the betting man does his fa -orite " steed, " for we hope to ha e the distinction of having the only cartoonist for the remainder of our time here. Now comes the time for the farewell words, not exactly farewell, either, just " an revoir, " because next year you will see our shining mugs again, but one notch nearer the top. At that time our feet v.ill be dangling from the Junior tree, and you can rest assured that the rest of the school will know that we are in existence. Wn will at that time, of course, wear the sober and sanctimonious appearance which so fittingly ( ? ) becomes a Junior, for we will ha ' e only one more notch to carve before we can sign our name with a flourish and then proceed to add a portion of the alphaljet by way of explanation that another sucker has passed through the halls of learning at IMilligan and is ready to throttle the world and wrench from it fortune and fame. „ , , , ,, bo now, good readers, one and all, I ' ll push my ink bottle against the wall ; My worn-out pen I ' ll throw away. For I ' m worn and weary in body and soul In a frantic effort to make this annual roll. M. A. H. y m-w§W ' iffWM opDomorc Class poem This is the class which teachers feign Does most honor to Milligan ; The brave old class that sings To the blooming Freshmen Their glorious hymns, And never fears a bit the consequence of it. The peal of melody unfurls. Onward go the boys and girls Of the Sophomer Class to face the blast — That comes to all persons first or last — Of facing the world without a mask. So lay off your " get-by " schemes so fair And weave " character building " in your hair. ' Thanks to the integrity of our Profs — It made us love them all As they boasted loud and bold Of feat s they accomplished in days of old ; But in my head it rings — That maybe they didn ' t do all these things At the time they were young like we. But now, you Sophs, just open your eyes And gaze for a moment up toward the skies ; You ' ll catch a vision, while looking there. Of Juniors and Seniors having fun While you are fighting hard for knowledge ; But cheer up, Sophomores, one and all. For some day we ' ll sit on that same old wall. M. A.

" Life has not been easy for us in all respects. We ha ' e sub- mitted to indignities of all sorts. Our rooms have been stacked. We have been called out of bed at three in the morning to explain a half- round square, or to lend some one a match, or by some earnest inquiry as to whether or not we had any corn bread. We have been given extemporaneous shower-baths done up in brown paper pokes and handed to us from second- story windows. Our Profs have seen fit to speak to us once or twice a week, and Prexy has lectured to us all on his famous subject, " Do Right. " Nay, more than this, we ha e hungered for s)-mpathy and encouragement and received demerits : we have thirsted for knowledge and have been twitted because of our inability to do everything. Life has been miserable at times; we have been so homesick that all that has kept us from going home has been the lack of kale. We have tried to study, and could only read and forget. Urged to concentrate, we have labored and burnt midnight oil to no avail. But in some other ways we can congratulate ourseh ' cs. ' e have furnished the varsit}- basket-ball team with a center, the second team with four members, the baseball team with a pitcher and three other men, the track teams with se -eral men, and our co-eds have furnished a guard to the girls " basket-ball team. Freshman orators and debaters have been selected several times. Two Freshies are on the college quartette. In other ways our contribution to the college life has been large and our influence extensi ' e. We feel that we are a part of old jMilligan now, and are already planning to help next year ' s crop of greens through the throes of entering college. 38 WM m ' w www M W ' Wi J. N. HARDY Pompadour.

I hear the crack of the willow, and a small white object goes sailing through the air, with a grey -uniformed body scurrying to the place of its falling. Then I hear the thud of the ball in the mitt as it is received at home plate just in time to put out the runner, who has rounded the three bases and nears home plate intent on making a home run. Oh, the thrill of it all! Spring is here, baseball paraphernalia is very much in evidence and every indication points to the best team that Alilligan has ever had. Milligan has always held up her end of die game when it came to base- ball, and seldom has supported a losing team. In years past we have crossed bats with the leading colleges and universities of Tennessee and Southwest Virginia, and have held our own with honor. Last vear our record was not so his ' h as in former vears, due to the fact that we lost two of our best players just in the midst of the season, but despite this mishap we succeeded in splitting e -en with our opponents and winning as many as we lost. Among the games won were the ones played with Tusculum College, Washington College, East Tennessee State Normal. Lincoln Memorial L niversity, and others. As this issue of The Buff. ' lo goes to press before the 1915 baseball season has fairly begun, we can not tell what this year ' s record will be, but the prospects are very bright for an excellent season. With the old veterans, who ha -e helped to carry the Orange and Black to victory on many fields, and the new recruits, who have made en ' iable records at other colleges, we can predict one of the most brilliant seasons of our baseball history. I am sure vou will pardon me if in my enthusiasm I look into the future and with a prophetic -ision write out the record as it will stand when the last runner has arrived safely at the home plate for the season of 1914-1915.

At the opening of the season things looked a hit gloonn-, as no court was a -ailahle upon which to play. But perseverance upon the part of the students and professors resulted in a fairly decent improvised gymnasium. The real season opened November 23d in a rather fast game with East Tennessee Normal School. The first game of the col- lege, as well as the initial effort of most of the players, resulted in victory. - s tlie game drew to a close, our boys on the floor, as well as the " rooting line, " began to feel the thrill of real victory, vhicii greatly augmented the zeal for basket-ball. The final score was thirty-five to twenty-four. Our second game, on Decemlser 2d, was a most exciting and hard-fought one against Johnson Biljle College. Our team suffered certain irregularities in the line-up in this game, but the bo}-s went upon tlie floor witli a determina- tion to win, and played one of tlie best games of the season. When the whistle blew for the close, our men had iield the sturdy Johnson Bible team to a tie. Witliin two minutes more of play, the game was won when our center tossed a field goal, making the score twenty-one to nineteen. Upon the following day e journeyed to Greenville, Tennessee, and met the Greenville High School in a rather slow game, resulting in a victory of twenty-one to eighteen. The following night, December 4th, e met the strong Tusculum College quintette on the floor of the Tusculum gymnasium. This was our third game on as many consecutive nights. Our line-up was irregular, and the fast and well-coached Tusculum boys got away with us to the tune of sixty- four to seven. The first game of the holidays was played with the Johnson City High School in the gymnasium of the City High. The High School lads had been 59 WM$WWW-Mm greatly reinforced, and put up a swift and persistent game, coming within one point of sending our fellows home in defeat. The last whistle blew with the official score board showing a score of twenty-four to twenty-three. On Januaiy 14th the wiry little quintette from the Bristol High School engaged us on the home court. Our regular team was in good form, and pla} ' ed a consistent game against their lighter, though perhaps faster foe. At no time was the issue in doubt, and the game closed with a score of fort_v- one to twenty-seven. Following this game, on January 22d the strong Washington College delegation was met upon our court. In this game, also, our men showed good form and outplaj-ed the visitors, who -ere heavier but slower than our fellows. At the close of the game the score keeper announced to a large and enthusiastic audience the comfortable score of thirty-five to twenty-two. The next game was with the East Tennessee Normal upon the rather unfa ' orable floor of the Normal G5annasium. A rather rough, though fast game resulted in a score of thirty-seven to thirty-two in favor of the Normal School. On February 8th the swift and well-trained lads from Emory and Henr} Academy met us on the home floor. At the close of a fast and exciting- contest, played well by both teams, it was found that the " Prep " lads had lost to the tune of thirty-se ' en to twelve. The last game on the home court was played against the Johnson City High School, resulting in a victory of thirty-six to thirteen. We closed the season with a little trip, on which we played Bristol (Tenn. ) High School in the Bristol Y. M. C. A., losing b}- a score of thirty- one to twenty-one. On the following afternoon we met, for the second time, the Emory and Henry " Preps, " to lose by the score of thirty-two to twenty- one. The season closed with our ha ' ing ])layed thirteen games, losing four and winning nine. As to individual players, bre -ity confines us to the following : Todd (Capt. ), a trifle nervous at times but always enthusiastic, played a consistent, 60 -WMWW MMM strong game : Crouch was always in the game with a dash until the last whistle blew: Athearn. cool and deliberate, often turned the tide in a pinch: Peebles was always on hand to break up a dribble : Zimmerman usually got his man at the strategic moment to save a goal. Lowr}-. the all-round man (after Christmas ' ), in a mix-up never failed to deliver the goods: Ault (sub) always played with a -im : Huie and Shepherd (subs showed great promise. Special mention must be made of Frank Farrow, Coach, whose interest and zeal for the newly fomied team never abated. Too much can not be said in behalf for ser ' ice rendered throughout the season. The ]Milligan Reser -es played only two games, but won each of them. The first was with the Johnson City High team, resulting in a score of fifteen to ten. The other was with the Munsey Memorial team, of Johnson City, with a score of thirty-seven to twenty-four. J Iore than twenty men reported for work on the scrub team, prominent among whom were : Hardy ( Capt. Second Team), Clark. Garrett, Hardin, Shepherd, Emmert. Curtis Smith, Jennings Smith. Colley, and many others. All these should make strong men next year. Ve must give a word of praise to the Reserves for their faithful ork, and the practice which they afforded the arsity team.

From the opening whistle to the close there was no doubt as to the ability of our girls to play, and when the final tally was made it was found that the Milligan co-eds were winners to the tune of twenty-three to thirteen. The game was characterized by the swift and accurate passwork of the college girls. February the sixth the High School girls came to our court and received their second frailing, this time by the score of sixteen to seven. February the twelfth they boarded the train bound for Washington College. Handicapped by the small and unfamiliar gym, and a little nervous because of the lack of support from loyal rooters, they lost by the small margin of four points, the score being twelve to eight. March the twelfth the Washington girls came up to break lances with our girls again. This was their hardest and roughest game, both teams playing their le ' el best. At the end of the second half the score was tied, and during the next three minutes of play the visitors edged in a field goal by chance and the game was lost. Thus our girls ended the season, breaking even in games, but scoring quite a few more points than opposing teams. For a new team, composed of players nearly half of whom were new to the game, they developed into a combination hard to beat. Nelle Campbell and Aline Smith developed into goal shooters of the first water. Evelyn Love and Mozelle Kirk could sense a combination play and break it up before it started. Our center is the tallest in the State and an adept on the tip-off. Mention should also be made of Georgie Perry, Jennie Whitehead, Johnnie James, and Erva Mumford for the splendid work done as substitutes. 64 Crnnis Clul) Dfft ' ccrs FRANK FARROW President FRED ATHEARN Secretakv and Treasurer cpem tiers J.

Shortly after her birth she was christened Social Privilege, and, owing to the environment and careful attention given her by her nurse, Student Body, she grew rapidly. Her childhood was characterized by a bright and sunny disposition, and she carried these noble traits throughout life. At an earlv age she became instructor of Lo ' e at this institution, and held this position for years with great honor. At the age of thirty-three years she departed this life, leaving a multitude of weeping friends among the students. The following obituary is taken from the Milligan Tribune: " Miss Social Privilege, the beloved daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Milligan College, age thirty-three years, departed this life on September 8, 1914. She was in the prime of life, and her death came as a shock to all who knew her. Her mission in life was of a noljle character. She was an advocate of Love wherever she went, and was well informed on this subject. She held a prominent position as teacher in this school, and her lovely disposition was marveled at by all. She was a lover of nature: her schoolroom was " Lovers ' Lane. " and her grief was unequaled when her favorite spot on the campus was disfigured by tlie destruction of the trees. Many people think this was one of the causes of her early death. When she was buried the students marched as a bod} to her grave, strewing it with tokens of love. We sjanpathize deeply with the grief-stricken famih ' , and we commend them to Longfellow, who so beautifully said: " Be still, sad heart! and cease repining: Behind the clouds is the sun still shining: Thy fate is the common fate of all — Into each life some rain must fall, Some days must be dark and dreary. " Even though miracles are uncommon now, one happened in this instance. Social Privilege was resurrected from the dead, and one of the peculiarities is that she only enjo) ' s the blessing of living once a week. However, she lived, moved, and had her being among us often enough to win our affection. By her nurse and chief advocate, Student Body. WWMWM WBa si anti jErans XE of the hardest propositions that the students ha •e to butt up against at school is the va3 ' S and means of taking social privileges. This is a source of much worry, and very few of the Milliganites escape tliis trouble. But where there is a will there is a way, and the way varies to a great extent. The most common one, perhaps, is at meal time. Here the students come three times a day to feed their souls on love, as well as the body on hash. The faculty looks on this as a necessary thing, for they depend on love glances to take the place of sure-enough butter. After eating, a walk is always necessary at ] lilligan — especially after supper. This way is not verv enio -able. howe " er. because of the anxiety on the part of the participators. An}- minute they expect to hear Bessie ' s little musical -oice ring out ; " Fi ' e demerits and no social privileges for Sunday ! " Hand in hand with walking is tennis. These modes are not as popular, how- ever, as the educational one. Because of the belief manifested in the old proverb, " The early bird catches the worm, " one can see a good many of the campus course students marching diligently to class some twenty minutes before time to have class, in order to catch the worm. Then, last of all comes the beloved Sunday afternoon. This is the most popular way of all, for this is the time when the rule abiders sit up and take notice. This time is dearer than all others because the students labored for it so industriously, holding mass meeting, and appointing delegates, and using every form of argument except a general strike. Lord, send us students who can invent new wavs and means. 87 octal Ci)art COUPLES nicknames, roost faculty opinion degree Keith Ford Larry Zint merman Miss Laura End of Hall Zim Dead Gone Superlative Mae Bales Harry Mount Snookums College Steps Spoony Most Loving 98° in shade Aline Smith Mark Kirk Doll Baby Dudey Alcove Perfectly All Right Superfine Mozelle Kirk J.

No one, when it can be avoided in any way, must attend chapel, for the morning class is something new and only a mere formality. Article 3. Character building is to be the last consideration in the training of Milligan students. Such trivialities must n.ever be mentioned in the presence of undergraduates, as it tends to keep their minds off the better things of life. Article 4. From seven till nine at night no one is expected to be in his own room, This is the time for ' isiting, and any one endeavoring to make it " sacred and inviolate " will be compelled to buy Professor Hayden three cans of Prince Albert smoking tobacco. Article 5. Any one finding a trash barrel in Mee Hall must immedi- ately, without delay, start it rolling down the stairs and then scamper to his room. Care must be taken to see first that the trash will be well distributed all over the steps and floors. Dr. Boyd does not object to this form of amuse- ment, as it does not detract in any way from his plan of training young men. Article 6. Persons seen using the walks for any use whatever will be fined ten cents. The walks are merely for ornament, and the grass is there for us to walk on. Observe the signs, " Keep ofif the walks. " Article 7. Always keep in mind that Milligan does not stand for any- thing that is right. From the president up we cry with unit ed voice, " Down with everything that is honorable and upright! " Article 8. When the silver tinkle of Bessie ' s bell is heard the boys are not to leave their places, and the girls are only to snuggle closer, for this is merely a signal from Bessie that she is still there and that all is well. To leave at this time is considered very impolite by every one. Article 9.

This is merely a manifestation of brotherly love. Article 10. If you should be called out of your cozy warm bed in the wee small hours of the morning only to have to answer the cjuestion, " Have you any corn bread?

EXT to chapel for the first time in two weeks. Thought surely tliey would have something different: but, no, the same old routine of services was carried on that marked the first day of school. First. Prex}- Mc. announced that we (the honorable student bodv ) should all widi one voice sing his favorite and not otten sung ( song, number 17. After demonstrating to us and Jiimself that liis ' ocal chords were properly greased and in good working order for the day ' s work, he called a halt and genth ' announcetl that our esteemed Brother Hayden would then lead us in a few- words of prayer. Brother Hayden implored the blessings of the Hea enh- Father upon us all, whilst a continual sham battle raged in tlie ranks of tlie student body by a few who were in possession of some shot. Tlien came the treat ( ?) of the da}-. We were gently reminded of the fact that ] lilligan stands for " Character Building First of All, " and then we were admonished to keep the study hour sacred and inv-Jolate. I could give a verl:)atim repro- duction of his speech, for it was the same this morning as it was last Septem- ber, and as it will be the 18th of May. Dr. Boyd next made his debut ( for the first time in to-day ' s affairs) by reading responsi -ely No. 305. Yidl Dr. Hayden ' s announcement that the Social Welfare Class would meet on Thursday afternoon, and Professor Miller ' s statement that English Six would have a test on Hamlet every day for the next two weeks, it would appear that we had been sufficiently punished for one day ; but, no, we had to sing the college song, after which we were told, " If there is nothing further, you are dismissed.

There ' s the first tenor, Athearn, He ' s the nightingale, " dadburn, " Or some sort o ' bird — a parrot, owl — Vou should hear him, how he screeches When for upper " g " he reaches — It ' s a cross between a bellow and a howl. And there ' s Ellis — he is swell — Has a voice just like a bell (The kind the farmers hang upon a calf) : But he always sings the best Where his score denotes a rest. Or when all the notes are on the basso staff. And there ' s Hardy, reads at sight, Reads by day, or reads by night — To him all sorts of notes look just alike — Got his practice calling hogs. Should go back to rolling logs ; He ' s about the worst that ever hit the pike. Brother Dick — he sings bass — ' Pon my honor, he ' s a case. And his voice starts just an inch above his feet. Does he sing, or does he howl? Does he grumble, groan, or growl ? Makes a racket that is anything but sweet. 101 }i 10 iS J. T. : IcKISSICK " Prexy Mac. " or just " Mac. " like all great men. has his hobby. As a collector of rare and precious pipes, tobacco cans, cigarette papers and plugs, he is a con- noisseur (?). and his collection ranks as one of the finest in America. " ' Prexy " is the best straightener of youthful characters Milligan has known since the days of our beloved Hopwood. He uses the osteo- pathic method, painful at the time, but appreciated later. Like all wise men. he also has his mottoes, which he is fond of quoting, such as: " Do right. " " Study hour — sacred and inviolate, " " Character build- ing first of all. " C. D. DAY Great Day ! " Jocund Day stands tiptoe on the mystic mountain top " of Math and Sci, and, with his noiseless grin, seeks to burst asunder the clouds of ignorance be- fogging our tender intellects, but — well, of course he won ' t admit that it is a hopeless case. ' Fessor goes in for tennis and walk- ing for pastime. He is good-looking, too. but Mrs. Day does not seem to be afraid to let him go to classes and to breakfast alone. W. B. BOYD " Billy " Boyd is a believer in boys. Give Doctor a dormitory full of healthy j-oung .Americans and he wouldn ' t trade places with St. Peter ! We ' ll just whisper this, now don ' t tell any one, but he is a crank ! Yes. sir. a crank ! Why. he actually be- lieves that a bo3 ' will tell him the truth ! Doctor is an A-1 sleuth. Let a boy leave his room during study hour and he will be caught under somebody ' s bed or in the closet before five minutes have passed. Professor Boyd fairly radiates optimism, encouragement, and Christianity. MISS MARY JAXE HARDIN Miss Hardin dotes on French, Domestic Science, and onions, especially when the latter are stewed on the classroom radiator. The co-ed who sits at the feet of Mary Jane and faithfully studies can compete successfully with the home-makers of America. She believes in cleanliness and sj ' stem, and believes she can save the homes of the country $1,000,000 a day. Miss Hardin ' s hobby is Milligan, and no sacrifice is too great for her to make for the good of old M. C. 103 ■MM::MWMMMi B. H. HAYDEN " Brother Hayden, " while Dean of the Bible and the adored ' fessor of the preacher boys, has gathered each boy and girl under his protecting wing, and woe be unto him who dares to assail any of his youthful prodigies. ' ' Bela " has the whitest crop of hirsute appendage on the hill, but to see him swinging his Indian clubs, or riding his bicycle, one would say that he was onl} ' twenty-one. ' Fessor ' s hobbies are the Orient and Prohibition, and the only time he was ever known to be caught without a ready reply was when some one asked him a question about each and he didn ' t know which to answer first. MISS BESSIE DAIMWOOD " The dragon of Hardin Hall " is so youthful and good-looking that many a youth has entertained serious thoughts of taking Campus Course with Bessie. But Bessie ' s ideals are ministers and Seniors. As Dean of Women, Bessie is a success. She has no trouble in driving the boys off, for they can ' t resist her charms. Miss Daimwood ' s hobby is fashions, and she " sure can dress well. " MISS MAE BENNETT " Teacher " is a regular fountain of good humor. " She is not only witty herself, but the cause " Say, you ought to see her play basket-ball. She can throw more goals than any girl on the hill. She is a specialist in business, and her students are the most industrious in college. She can be serious if the occasion demands, but her normal expression is a smile that fades away under her ears and eyes. Quietness and efficiency are her chief characteristics. JAMES MILLER " Come up, boys, sometimes, and see me. " We have started many a time, but — you know how it is in Hardin Hall. ' Fessor Miller is a human compression pump, but air is not his specialty. He can force more English into an ordinary numskull in thirty-six weeks than any human being. His favorite quotation is " Students, you are not coming up with your work. " And, likewise, " I ' ve been too easy on you. " His memory for poetr) ' is prodigious, especially Shelley, and no one has heard him use the same quotation twice. MISS WILLIAMS " I ' d just like to say " and when Miss Williams starts out with this preface in chapel, watch the music pupils assume an an.xious air. Miss Williams brings forth evidences of musical ability in pupils who were never credited with musical taste be- fore. Miss Sally is fond of the preacher boys, and somewhat shy, but othewise mighty nice. Music is her religion, and practice the only means of staying in grace. MISS SUSIE PERRY Like some other lady members of the faculty. Miss Perry has an affection for preacher boys. Her specialty is oratory and expression, but she is quite proficient on the violin, piano, and mandolin. The success of .-the college entertainments can be laid at " Sister Susie ' s " door, for her pupils are every one worthy examples of the teacher ' s work. Sleep is her favorite pastime, and eating her chief e.xercise. She is beloved for her good nature and accommodating " manner. 104 MISS ELMA E. R. ELLIS MRS. W. B. BOYD ' ' Mr. MuUenix, have you gotten those Latin and Greek credits yet? Teacher dead ! Well, that ' s too bad, but I must have those credits. " The proverbial eye of the needle is as wide as the broad way that leadeth to de- struction compared with the possibility of getting by Miss Ellis without the Classics. She has more patience to the square inch than any Prof in the classroom, but short be the shrift of the girl that dares practice piano under her room when Miss Ellis retires to private life. The destruction of Lovers ' Lane is a favorite topic with her students desirin.g to set out of a recitation. Mrs. W. B. B. is a success as an incul- cator of good manners in bad boys. She gathers a bunch of rowdies in her parlor ever f now and then and treats them to a Victrola concert. Her methods are adroit and effective. Her influence is felt in both dormitories, and her list of friends can only be numbered by obtaining the roll of attendance at Milligan. She has one fear, that she will become stout. " Honey ' ' assures her there is no danger, but her fear remains. If a boy wants to raise her ire, let him sweep something in the hall from his room and his doom is certain. MRS. B. H. HAYDEN The " Rose of Sharon " has nothing on the ' ' Rose of Bela. " Mrs. Hayden has made the library the most attractive place on the campus outside of Hardin Hall. Hundreds flock there every day to work, court, and read. The college is proud of its library and efficient librarian. Her hobby is trying to find something to do for some one else. Her only trouble is " Bela, " but she manages this incorrigible with such tact that it has gained her the plaudits of the entire student bodv. 105 o B AS YOU LIKE IT y o it 1 K ij ;«« s.
