We- have endeavored in these pages to mirror forth ' ancl portray our college life to the best of our abilitj. ' . Our aim has been to portray this in such a manner as will be pleasing to all friends and donors who have made Milligan possible, ever looking forward to a better and greater Milligan. So in after years, when, you turn these pages and go back down through, the misty aiijies of yesterday on the wings of memory, if what we ha •e done shall awaken in your heart the old fire and loyalty, our labors shall not have been in vain.

Hardin George W. Hardin was born at Cranberry, N. C, September 1, 1864. His ancestor, Edmond Williams, who married a sister of John Adams, had moved from Massachusetts in 1775 to the " Great West " and had settled on Buffalo Creek, Washington County, N. C, now Carter County, Tennessee, where stands Milligan College. His father, Jordan C. Hardin, settled at Johnson City in 1876, was a Charter member of the Johnson City Christian Church and one of the original contributors in 1867 to the first building fund of Buffalo Institute, now Milligan College. This was built on the original tract of land, where, in 177S, his ancestors settled, and where George W. Hardin attended for several years. He had the distinction of being the youngest member of its first graduating class in 1882. On the second of February, 1888, he was married to Miss Nola Frances Cameron, a daughter of Dr. James and Mary E. (Tipton) Cameron. Four children were given to them, Mary Julia Hardin McCowan, James Council, Anna, deceased, and George D. Mrs. Hardin always aided and shared in her husband ' s devotion to church activities, civic righteousness and Milligan College. Together they sacrificed, building, in these Christian institutions, memorials that shall ever stand to perpetuate their names as those who love their God and their fellovvmen. He was an elder and one of the trustees of the First Christian Church of Johnson City, and had always been actively engaged in the work of the Sunday School. For many years he was trustee and treasurer of Milligan College, which has enlarged and grown until today it is one of the best equipped institutions in this section and its success stands as a monument to his memory. His devotion to the college knew no limitations ; his money gifts, no bounds, except that of his bank deposits. Even then his credit, always good, was placed at the disposal of , the college. At his death his name safe-guarded $27,500 in notes which have since been paid by donors, and the notes burned. He attended every college function ; assumed a vital interest in each student ; cheered and aided the discouraged and was greatly beloved by all. During the dark and uncertain days and since, he " kept the lines of communication open between Milligan College and God, " often praying and planning far into the night. The value of his services to the college no man can estimate. George W. Hardin exemplified in his life the fact that man is not the possessor but the custodian only, of the money which he had earned by hard and unremitting toil. None was devoted to selfish pleasures, but was given with unsparing hand to relieve distress, to provide opportunities for struggling youth, to make sure the foundations of a triumphant church, and establish everywhere an abiding and an unyielding faith in the love of a living God. He was constantly sought out for Christian and civic uplift service because of his strong faith, his loyalty to conviction, his safe counsel and his love; for God and man. His Hfe interests were for others. He succeeded in all, but failed in safe-guarding himself. HS lived intensely, in self-abandonmnt, lavishing his vitality in strenuous pursuit of success and happiness for others. At the early age of fifty-eight, in the prime of life, because of complete exhaustion of physical power, he could no longer tarry in the flesh and was translated into the life more abundant. May 18, 1922. His life was ever the interpretation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His going home was triumphant.

IIHXRV J. DKRTlilCK, I ' ruiident -MRS. 11. J, Dl-.RTHlClv Ex-officio member of all committees, Dean of Women, Assistant to President, Member of Classification committee, Di- rectress of Boarding Department. President and Mrs. Henry J. Derthick were called to Milligan College six years ago. For twenty years they were in charge of church schools supported by the Christian Women ' s Board of Missions. Their aim has been to lift Milligan College out of her indebtedness, provide buildings and equipment ; increase the faculty ; and standardize the course of study until her position in the college world should be assured. This is being accomplished in a measure beyond the dream of the most sanguine. President Derthick inspires his friends with confidence and the worthwhileness of the work, and convinces them of their duty to it. Thus, the program goes forward. Mrs. Derthick, by her commanding personality exerts a powerful influence for good as Dean of Women. One of her girls says she fits Wordsworth ' s lines, " A perfect woman nobly planned, to warn, to comfort and command. " One of President Derthick ' s favorite words is " peptomism " which he defines as " optimism at work " ; truly, optimism at work at full speed is his very equivalent. With these vigorous and enthusiastic personalities and with well-defined purposes for growth and development, we may confidently expect Milligan to go forward along all lines. Page Twelve BUFFALO WILLIS BAXTER BOYD, A. B, A. M. Burritt College, Graduate Student of Uni- versity of Chicago. DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY AND EDUCATION Dean of Men, Milligan College, 1914-1923. Chairman of Athletic Committee. Member of Classification Committee. Must we resort to words to describe a man who embodies the spirit of Milligan, who portrays the essence of loyalty, fidelity and true worth? Indeed, words are inade- quate. To the students of Milligan Col- lege, Dean Boyd, is not only the polished scholar, but the very impersonation of high ideals, and all that is noblest and best in human character. " Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friend. " Surely Dean Boyd is Milligan ' s truest friend. MAURICE BERTRAND INGLE, A. B. Kansas Christian College, A. M. Fellow British Chronological Association, First honors Modern Languages, Indianapolis Classical School. Mathematics and Physics, Harvard. DEPARTMENT OF SPANISH AND HISTORY DEAN OF BIBLE INSTITUTE Prof. Ingle has proven to us the reality of the Master ' s words, " If any man would be great among you, let him become the servant of all. " With untiring effort and unbounded kindness he has labored for us and with us. As Dean of the Bible Institute he is well prepared, having been minister of First Church, Jacksonville, Fla. ; First Church, Columbia, S. C. ; State Evangelist in Florida and South Carolina, and general evangelist in the United States. Page Thirteen nr " - A BUFFALO ASA FRAZIER CUCIIRANH, B. S. Cumberland University, B. S. Vanderbilt University. University of Tennessee DEPARTMENT OF SCIENCE Assistant Dean of Men. Athletic Committee. Anj ' one who falls a bit below his caliber in Prof. Cochrane ' s class decides he is a per- fect bear and trembles at his voice. But, really, beneath all this is a kind, sympathetic heart, that is ready at any time to lend a helping hand. Prof. Cochrane is readily recognized as a master in his profession. His students love and reverence him both for his scholarship and gentility. SAMUEL JACKSON HYDER, B. S. Milligan College, B. S. University of Tennessee. DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS Treasurer of the College and Boarding Department. Student Organization Committee. A quiet, reserved, rather unassuming sort of person but one who lets little escape him and is always at his post. Of a rather poetic turn of mind, and delights in enter- taining us at chapel. To know Prof. Hj der one must take " Trig " under him. He has been true to his Alma Mater and is one of the best liked and most loyal men on the hill. HENRY GRADY ROOKER, B. A. Vanderbilt University, B. A. Peabody College. DEPARTMENT OF FRENCH AND ENGLISH Classification Committee. Student Organization Committee. Athletic Committee. Prof. Rooker is one of Milligan ' s most thoughtful and energetic men. It is an accepted fact that all of his students must do real work. Prof. Rooker possesses ability to organize. He works at each task undertaken with determination and accomplishes results. VVe prophesy that his work as a great teacher has only begun.

E)EPARTMENT OF ENGLISH AND GERMAN Sponsor of Dramatic Club, Counselor of Gideon ' s Band, Faculty representative on the Periscope and Buffalo Staffs, Member of the Student Organization Committee. A man whose character is above reproach. His friends are legion in number and loyal in nature. He is a preaclier as well as a teacher, but his hobby of hobbies is etymology. He finds recreation in changing employment, for it is difficult to find him when he is not busy. His theory of life is that progress must be eternalhr continuous. WALTER EVERETT HARMAN, B. A.; B. D. Tri-State College, .-Xngola, Lidiana. Honor graduate of Drake Universitv. DEPARTMENT OF SACRED LITERATURE Counselor of Gideon ' s Band and pastor of the local church. Milligan College is exceedingly fortunate in having in her Bible Department such an exceptionally able and broad-minded man as Prof. Walter E. Harman. He comes from the North-West where he was engaged in evangelistic work. His potent personality and his forceful method of presenting ideas make him a favorite with all who attend his classes. He believes in looking the world square in the face and those around him learn to respect manliness, truth, and courage. WILLIAM AUGUSTUS WRIGHT, Ph. D. University of Chattanooga, A. M., Ph. D. DEPARTMENT OF ANCIENT LANGUAGES " So his life has flowed from its mysterious urn, a sacred stream, In whose calm depths the beautiful and pure alone are mirrored. " Dr. Wright is a scholar, a gentleman, and a Christian in the fullest meaning of the words. He is loved, revereneced, and respected by all with whom he comes in contact. His nature radiates sunshine and optimism. Professor of Ancient Language in the College of Liberal Arts, University of Chatta- nooga, for twenty-four years, during twenty of which he was Dean of the Institution. Page Fifteen SWU: TAZVVELL WALLER NEWMAN DIRECTOR OF MUSIC Mr. Newman studied music with S. F. Werren, Basle, Switzerland; with N, J. Elsem- heimer, Cincinnati, Ohio; with Wm. Mason, New York City. Mr. Newman was born in Tennessee ; after his years of travel, experience and study he comes back to Tennessee. Such a musician needs no recommendation — only a hearing, and his ability and talent are readily seen. The orchestra under his direction has given several concerts in chapel and surrounding towns, all the pieces rendered being the Direc- tor ' s own composition. MRS. W. B. BOYD LIBRARIAN Mrs. Boyd is loved by all the girls and has a warm place in the heart of every bo} ' . During the absence of the Dean of Women, she kindly and most efficiently served as advisor. She is a woman of attractive personality, modest, pleasant and cheerful ; a woman of few words, and she usually means what she says. She is the " Boss " of the library and of the Dean of the College. JAMES CALDWELL WICKER, A. B. Richmond University COACH AND PHYSICAL DIRECTOR OF ALL ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES Coach Wicker rendered signal and exceptional service overseas following his gradua- tion. Mr. Wicker has a keen sense of what constitutes good sportsmanship and is an adept in directing and training the youth of the College. As a student of, and an assistant to, Frank Dodson, Coach Wicker has had the best type of background in Athletic train- ing and ideals. His eminently efficient and satisfactory service in his field is attested by all who know of his work. Page Sixteen » w i!ALO MISS ERNESTINE RICHARDSON Woman ' s College, Scranton, Penna. DEPARTMENT OF DOMESTIC ART Miss Richardson plays an important part in the Milligan drama. Knowing the fatality of Milligan environment to the girlish heart, Miss Richardson comes to do her bit in helping the young lady prepare for that which so often follows Milligan graduation — and sometimes before. Miss Richardson is an artist with a needle and is rapidly developing others along her footsteps. With such a lovable disposition, an eagerness to serve and help in every difficulty, she has won a place in the hearts of the girls that no one else could usurp. MISS KATHLEEN ADAMS Johnson City Business College TUTOR OF COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT Miss Adams is the efficient tutor of the department that makes you think with your fingers and write English in such an abbreviated form that no one outside the secret can fathom its depths. The Commercial Department increases each year, and with added equipment will soon become one of the important phases of college life. MRS. ASA FRAZIER COCHRANE MATRON OF BOYS ' HOME When the boys needed a new mother for their home, they chose one whom every boy loved, and who loved everybody with an unselfish, unfailing devotion. Mrs. Cochrane, with her sweet, gentle disposition, has won a firm place in the hearts of the students. We remember the wonderful Hallowe ' en party she helped the boys to give. In every way she has proven that " A friend in need, is a friend indeed. " Page Seventeen. J BUrFA1.0 MRS. XINA WHITE HANNAH Hamilton College: Transylvania University; Coe College, Conservatory of Music. DEPARTMENT OF VOICE Mrs. Hannah serves very efficiently as the directress of the voice department. She has given us great surprises in discovering latent talent and has succeeded immeasurably in developing already awakened genius. From her class may go forth opera stars, evangel- istic singers, or lullaby warblers. L. BARTLETT McCORMICK Tennessee Polytechnic Institute. " A class is but the lengthened shadow of a man, " says Emerson. This is revealed to us very forcefully in the teacher-personality of Mr. McCormick. Combined with scholar- ship and broad vision we find a scope of influence and a breadth of personal touch that produces the perfect type of a successful teacher. As assistant in the teaching of history, or science, he exhibits a skill and wisdom unusual in the student-teacher. CLYDE C. WILHOITE Tate Preparatory School, Vanderbilt University. Mr. Wilhoite is good-natured, sincere and obliging. He is very ambitious, but does not look to the future alone, for he is thorough in his work in the present. He is very efficient in his work as assistant in the History and English Departments. His motto is " Laugh and the world laughs with you. " JOHN C. McKISSICK Midland College From the southern plains of Texas, bordering the land of the Spanish, comes Mr. McKissick to teach us their language, that we may the better become their brothers and teach them American ideals and raise their lives to a higher plane. Efficient in leadership, competent in methods and influential in contact with his students, Mr. McKissick has made a record worthy of the name of one who once served as Milligan ' s president. 5 i== Page Eighteen 1923 £W [rn w rnTTTTITIIMrr [ii ™ iiiillllill U}A !

Fields belongs to the " Who ' s Who " of Milligan. With a natural affability, which is a great asset in any life, he is one of the most popular young men in the college. The spirit of the true boy-scout lingers with him and is a part of him — the spirit of helpfulness and genuine chivalry. His biographer points with pride to his pure morals and habits of industry. After having completed the High School course in Johnson City, he entered Milligan in 1919, and is a member of the present Senior Class, with an honorable rec- ord to his credit. This brief history is also a prophecy of what he will be. Capable, patient, resolute, he will win his way to distinction in his chosen activity ; and in him the world will feel the impress of a forceful personality. With memories of happy associations, we must say good-bye. " Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit. " BUFFALO AMELIA SUSSNER, A. B. Jamestown, Tenn., " Little Girl " President Student Council ' 21.

Her favorite study is Astronomy; her favorite revolving observatory is the " Triangle. " Amelia is talented, versatile, modest ; in the realm of sweet music a prodigy; in the realm of logic and philosopher a master ; in the realm of religion and aesthetics, a minis- tering angel on a mission of love and sym- pathy dispatched. There is a feminine fine- ness and charm which seems to endow sim- plicity itself with a royal edict and turn the most reticent silence into golden eloquence. With such a personality so beautifully woven out of the threads of virtue and true worth, Amelia is destined to a real career. BUFFALO D. LESTER KELLER, A. B. Johnson City, Tenn.

Member of Orchestra, ' 21- ' 22; ' 22- ' 23. D. Lester Keller is one of Milligan ' s most promising young men. In early youth when the choice was presented to him of " Oats or Wild Oats, " he chose the former, and has ever since maintained an unsullied character. Truth, honor, integrity and lofty ideals ; these are priceless qualities too rarel} ' found in modern life, but they are his. Having graduated from the Johnson City High School, he entered Milligan College in 1919 as a freshman and is now completing his senior year. As a student he has made a record for thorough work. He has a mind well-poised but with a taste inclining toward foreign language, music and art. Of course, you would anticipate this after one look at his classic features and dreamy e3 ' es. " What about your life career? " his bio- grapher asked. " For awhile, " he replied, " I expect to be a teacher, and then — !, " and here we parted. Out into the world very soon you go, but a thousand happy memories will link you to this campus, and sometime you will return, crowned with honors, to make a " chapel speech.

She doeth little kindnesses which most leave undone and despise, For naught which sets one ' s heart at ease and giveth peace and happiness, Is low esteemed in her eyes. From the Cumberland Mountains, rich not only in forests of hemlock and oak, maple and birch, but richer in the purest American blood — the Anglo-Saxon; prodvicing not only iron, coal and oil but producing the most illustrious men of the nation, comes Martha, the maiden of service, gentle, modest, un- assuming. She entered Milligan College in the fall of 1919; bringing with her high ambi- tions and lofty purposes; never faltering; never failing. She has pursued her college course loved and honored by all, but most loved and most highly honored by those who know her best ; firm in what she believes, but open to conviction ; unfailing in her de- votion to principle and an untiring worker ; never in the four years of her college life having been summoned upon the velvet car- pet of discipline, she was chosen president of the Student Council, which responsibility she has carried with dignity and distinction. True to her purpose to serve, she has refused to embark upon the temptestuous seas of matrimony, but has remained steadfast vi ' ith a brighter world. And so to you, Martha, descendant of an honored race, beloved daughter of Milligan, it is with especial pride and affection we send you forth to carve out for j ' ourself a destiny of glorious achievement. " The heights bj ' great men won and kept. Were not attained by sudden flight. But SHE while her companions slept Was toiling upward in the night. " Page Twenty-three JESSIE JOYCE PERKINS, A. B.

" Graduate of Clarksville High School, ' 19. Southwestern University, ' 19- ' 21. Although Jessie has been with us only two years it is hard to find a more popular girl in school. She is a happy little girl who has made her way straight into our hearts. She has lots of " pep " and school spirit ; member of the Dramatic Club, Philomathean Literary So- ciety, D. G. S. Club, and the founder and chief promoter of the " Ex-Courters Club. " Not satisfied with her A. B., Miss Perkins is a candidate for the degree " M. R. S. D. R. H. " All evidence points toward her suc- cess. This little girl dotes on cakes, candy and Mrs. Poage ' s cookies, fun, frizzles and other frivols. Yet, she has proven to us more than once that brains lurk beneath a dainty Idonde e.xterior and that even frivol- ity and mischief may be conquered by pride and ambition. Precious things, I have heard them say, . " Mways come in package small ; ' Tis not how much people weigh, ' Tis not that they ' re big and tall, But it ' s fineness and it ' s worth Give to them their selling price. Therefore, judging on this plan, Little Jessie ' s surely nice. Page Twenty-four PAULINE FERGUSON, A. B. Erwin, Tenn. Pauline Ferguson is a product of East Ten- nessee. She was born in the earliest part of her life and has been full of mischief ever since. She is a graduate of EHzabethton High School and is a candidate for the degree A. B. at Milligan College. Pauline is genial, cherry, sunshiny and warm-hearted, although she sometimes has an April disposition. She recently joined the Frizzle-tops but is rapidly out-growing that organization. She likes boys and biscuits, cakes, candies, and compositions (otherwise known as " themes " ). She hates shams and show, pharisees and poodle dogs. She was recently elected as a delegate to the Old Maid ' s Convention, but declined. She said, " I ' ll be e ' Vaden ' that as long as I can. " She is a home-loving, and home-making little soul and would no more fit among old maids than she would in the halls of Congress. Witty, gentle, tender-hearted, she will inake a cozy nook for some good man and help him to help the world. She will be remembered at her Alma Mater and will long remember her classmates and teachers. HERE ' S TO " PEARLY BARNES. " Page Twenty-five , n BUFFALO I I RUTH E. NOWLIN, A. B. Profit, Ky.

The blue-grass region still has for her a charm from which, perhaps, she will never be released. She is a lover of nature. " God ' s out of doors, " has been her playground from earliest childhood ; and we can easily imagine her far from the restriction of college " rules " and returning to the farm, exclaiming in the language of William Tell, " Ye rocks and crags, Pm with you once again. " Miss Ruth completed her preparatory course, together with the first two college years, in her own state, before coming to Milligan; thus leaving only the Junior and Senior years to be completed here. During this brief time she has greatly endeared her- self to all her teachers and class-mates as a lady of rare talent and accomplishment. She is a member of the Ossolian Literary oo- ciety, on the Editorial Staff of the Peri- scope, a member of the Student Volunteer Band and for two semesters a member of the Student Council. Her life work, according to her present plan, is to be a missionary in the foreign field. In answer to a query from her biographer, " What is your greatest joy? " she promptly replied, " To win the confidence of a child. " In this we think she will be successful, as she has already won the confidence of a grown-up child.

Otherwise John possesses an enviable poise; and mani- fests a reserve of power and a profound deliberate judgment rounding out a symmetry of character and personality difficult to dupli- cate. If the friends of the " inner circle " who know best should testify, it would be in the terms of an unmistakable prophecy for a ■career of efficient service and fidelity to the highest ideals. John carries a veritable boquet of good wishes gathered from the hearts of all his college friends the rare fragrance of which is an inspiration for a life of ardent endeavor.

She directs with authority; she plays the ukelele with a profound philo- sophic dignity. Li " Flapperology " she is a novice ; in philosophy she is a, devotee ; in friendship she is the soul of honor and fidelity ; in debate she is relentless and mas- terful ; in " spoofolog3 ' " she is coy, shy and coquettish ; in business she is a paragon of good sense and sound judgment ; to properly characterize the subject of this sketch one could not omit any of the catalog of force- ful, and aggressive qualities ; and yet a bit of pleasing feminity lurks behind a pair of rich, sparkling eyes and intermittent dimples, embellishing a symmetry of paradoxes with a depth of pathos, a tenderness of soul, and winsomeness of heart which to her closest friends are little short of perfection. Her classmates feel that the very stars are pledged to guarantee for Kathleen a career of enviable service. Page Twenty-eig-ht iy,rtrALO i ! CARL C. MONIN, A. B. Nolin, Ky.

They account for his orator} ' and his religion. He has a winning smile mingled subtly with his hatred of sham. He is serious, sensible, sane; has an appreciation of humor and the soul of a mystic. He is mysterious 3 ' et openly frank. He is reticent yet very positive. He does not advertise although he has plenty of goods to deliver. He is a Kappa Alpha and an A. F. and A. M. He is a member of the Dramatic Club, of the American Literary Society, of the Ministerial Association and of the Gideon ' s Band. He was the winner of the Oscar M. Fair Oratorial Contest in 1921. He is a can- didate for the degree of A. B. He has preached and taught, and expects to continue this work. He will succeed in either or both. He has tackled the " v ' ild and woolly west " and remained civilized. Taking him all in all he is a well-rounded specimen who will reflect credit upon his Alma Mater.

Near tlie banks of the Father of Waters, Thelma, the blue-eyed daughter of the house of Nolen, was discovered. Brilliant, accomp- lished, impetuous, simshine and showers, merry and sad, sugar and spice, a mixture, yet with all a very attractive bit of femin- inity. From the archives of Union City, Obion County, we learned that as an infant she was unusually precocious ; talking quite intelligentlj ' at the age of six months, and entering school soon thereafter. While other little lassies were spending their playtime in games of tag and afternoon teas. Thelma was forming habits of study and industry, that early destined her for a distinguished career. All through her High School daj ' s she was seeing visions and dreaming dreams of the heights beyond. Her graduation day was to her but the beginning of this alluring career. In the fall of 1919, she was at- tracted by a caravan of eager students mov- ing eastward to the college in " Happy Valley, " which now becomes her Alma Mater. During the four years of college life, we find her one of the busiest students on the campus, winning so many laurels that they cannot be tabulated, and as her college days near com- pletion, we see her approaching the end of the rainbow of her dreams with the fairies holding out to her the pot of gold — Will she grasp it, or will she Hyder self in the pro- fession of home-making? In thy face we see the map of honor, truth and loyalty. Page Thirty-two i ss rALO JOHN M. HART, A. B. ; Ph. B. Pikeville, Tenn. Honor Graduate Bledsoe County High School, 1919. Principal of Junior High School. Member of Vice-President of American Lit- erary Society. Inter-Society Debater. Member Dramatic Club. Member Student Volunteer Band. Exchange Editor of Periscope. Member of Student Council. Inter-Collegiate Debater. Organization Manager of " Buffalo. " John was first seen in Pikeville near the beginning of the present century, and as is recorded of all great men, he was born and reared on a farm. In the historic Sequatchie Valley, in a beautiful home presided over by a refined Christian father and mother, John ' s early years were spent. In God ' s great out- of-doors he became a lover of nature, ab- sorbing the beauty and purity of the infinite, thus laying the foundations of a stalwart manhood. He graduated early with honors from the Pikeville High School, matriculated in the University of Tennessee for one year. Desiring to continue his education in a Christian College, where it seemed possible to enjoy a more intimate and helpful rela- tionship with members of the faculty, and a more cordial fellowship with the students, he entered Milligan College three years ago. Each year, he has raised himself higher in the estimation of all, endearing himslf to the faculty by his s ' mpathetic co-operation with all the policies of the College, and to the students by his cordial support of all the student activities. He enjoys a joke, a book and you ; is loyal, cheerful, warm-hearted and true. As we think of his future, we see him seeking the sacrificial pathway of those who have dedicated their all to altrustic service. His thoughts are ever of others than of him- self. How e ' er it be it seems to me, ' Tis only noble to be good. Kind hearts are more than coronets And simple faith than Norman blood. " Page Tliirty-three " 3 III! BUFFALO Senior Class Poem " VALE, ALMA MATER " Dear Milligan, we ' ve loved you long, ' Tis hard to say goodbye ; We ' ve thrilled j ' ou with our happy song Sometimes we ' ve wished to cry. However oft we may have found Some faults in daj ' s gone by ; The} ' vanish now with one great bound, As we must say goodbye. And when at last our work is done, We, Seniors, with a sigh. With hearts that burn, in passing on, Bid this dear Hill goodbye. You send us out into the world To serve with all our might ; The banner which is now unfurled, You bid us keep in sight. But often will we think of you, Our Alma Mater, " dear; Sweet memories will we keep of you Throughout each passing year. A mist now comes before our sight A tear blinds every eye — You vanish as into the night, Dear Milligan, goodbye. — D Lester Keller.

HAM A splendid young life, dedicated to the preaching of the Gospel of Christ; Minister at Oak Grove, Tennessee, and at Hilton, ' irginia. At Hilton he will dedicate a new church building in the early summer. Ham loves to preach. WILLIAM D. DAUGHERTY A true devoted Christian ; loved by all for his life of sincerity.

HALBERT BOLING Mr. Boling has been preaching for two years. After four years at Milligan College and two years at the College of Missions, he intends to go to Perua as a missionary. Un- til then his purpose as he modestly states it is to do constructive work in neighboring churches. Page Seventy-six COLOR— Old Gold and Purple. CARL C. MONIN Mr. Monin is one of Milligan ' s finest young men — clean in life, noble in purpose, thor- oughly consecrated to the great task of Kingdom building. He preaches at Central School House, Tenn., regularly and at other points occasionally. A great future is before him. HUGHIE O. LANGSTON Hughie O. Langston is a young man of good Christian character. He has an ex- cellent knowledge of the Book and believes it from cover to cover. He is interested in every phase of Christian work. We believe he has a bright future before him as a preacher of the old Jerusalem Gospel. KENNETH H. McCORKLE Mr. McCorkle is little but loud. He has been preaching for several months at Clarks- dale, Miss. He is a devout Christian, staunch and four-square for the Old Book.

He is well-beloved by all the members of the churches wherever he ministers. He is doing a constructive work at Lick Creek and the Brick Church at Watauga, Tenn., and at several other points. He is a lovable char- acter and we predict a bright future for him. He is a member of the Athenian Literary So- ciety, where he makes a great mark as an orator.

Minister to Church at Shell Creek, Tenn., at which place he is doing constructive work for the Master. CHARLES A. FOWLER An earnest, enthusiastic, energetic young man, full of life. His greatest ambition is to lead others to Christ through love. He has been preaching for two years and to know him is but to feel the intensity with which he studies and strives to live out the Word. PAUL SCOTT Paul is a youngster who hides zeal, cour- age and keen intellectual argumentative abil- ity, all, behind a modest front. No theologi- cal text is too old or too dry for Paul to delve into when it is needed for his prepara- tion in prea ching and teaching the Word. E. EWING A man whom we all recognize for the fact that he exercises " common sense " along with his religion. His love for service, his desire to preach the gospel and to know the truth has led him to brave the storms of the " Old Greek Grammar. " Sl923fc Page Seventy -eight 1 BUFFALO ; I!

CARL L. FIELDS We find Carl " Posying " on the gridiron just as everywhere else. Here he is a stellar performer at the position of end. He ' s just as neat in tackling as in his dress. For quickness, clear-mindedness, speed and fair play, Carl is right there with the goods. Good boy, Carl. COACH J. C. WICKER He was the successful inventor of all the branches of Athletics at Milligan for the season of ' 22- ' 23. His success lies in his ability as a leader. Winning the respect and liking of his men, he inspired them to put forth the best that was in them and thus secured the greatest results. He is a hero of the World War. CAPTAIN JOE B. JARED " Our Jody " sure has fought a good fight for the Orange and Black these last two years playing both half and quarterback. He was picked for the " All East Tennessee " squad in ' 21. Beloved captain of our team and assistant coach for ' 22. Everyone knows him as one of the " fightingest " football men that has hit this section for years. He has Ijeen an inspiration to Milligan and we regret that he is to leave us. Ej Page Ninety-eight t y o d BUFFALO !l JOHN L. MEADOWS John L. who is better known as " Cap, " was captain of the 1921 team. By his unre- lenting determination to win, he has instilled into the hearts of his admirers a desire to see him in action at his position at quarterback or at half-back. Playing football takes second place in his heart only to " courtin ' " Vesta and who could blame him? EDWIN G. CROUCH It takes real business qualities and plenty of them to manage successfulh ' a football team and to arrange a schedule such as the one we had this year. We ' ll gladly take off our hat to Edwin as the one who fills the bill. He is attentive to the men and is always on the job. Milligan appreciates your service, " Ed " , and hopes that those excel- lent business qualities may remain yours throughout life. ELMER E. HODGES " Big " Hodges, our captain-elect for ' 23, has distinguished himself by his long and excel- lent record on the gridiron, this being his third year. Playing guard, he has always been in the thickest of the battle, never giving up, fighting with a grim determination that continually brews trouble for his opponents. You can ' t keep Elmer down. Page Ninety-nine r: wSwM GAVID MITCHELL Our sturdy " Mitch. " His praise is faint compared to his sterling worth. He is by far one of the speediest men Milligan has had in years. Displaying loyalty for his country, school, and team. He leaves us for Annapolis with an untarnished record. He never failed to play a game cleanly and squarely. PHILIP SAWYER " Squatty, " famous as tackle on the second team of the " All Appalachian Confer- ence " for ' 21, has been fighting for Milligan for three years. He is known as one of the best all-around athletes on the hill, as he is a three-year all-letter man. At football very few men have gained through " Squatty ' s " tackle. It is just a little too hard for the best of them. EVERETT BEASLEY The way in which he can follow the opening made for him and the way in which he can dodge the enemy while carrying the ball is nothing short of miraculous. In addi- tion Baesley ' s sprinting is a most valuable asset to the " eleven. " When he bucks the line, he ' s going through. What it takes to make a backfield man, Beasley has it. Page One Hundred BUrri LO .1 int lf 1 1: A ' Q - li i I ' M ' r f- ' CHARLES H. SPAHR This red-headed Virginian whom we all love is " Red " Spahr. At his position on left-end he was a consistent and determined fighter for the old Orange and Black. He exhibited a patriotism in his playing that has seldom been surpassed, for he fought with an undying spirit. We are hoping that he will be with us when the curtain rises next fall. BARTLETT McCORjVIICK Those loud cheers you hear on the side-line are for " Big Mac. " That fellow tear- ing a hole in the enemy ' s line is " Big Mac. " And by the way, did you ever see him cage the old basketball? But above all, " Big Mac ' s " clean sportsmanship and his e.xceedingly good nature contribute to his popularity with the Milligan students. WILLIAM E. HYDER " Old Fellow, " you ' ll have to hit Milligan ' s line at some other point. " Skinny " Hyder has placed a brick wall in your way. He ' s not so fast on the field; but that doesn ' t matter. He hits ' em hard, he hits ' em lov ' . He blocks the traffic so it cannot go. Page One Huiidred and One 21 1 m Ji I FORREST LITTLE " Private " has only been with us for a year, but he has proven himself one of our most valuable gridiron warriors. The diving force of his aggressive fighting personality together with his husky figure has made Milligan ' s center a source of unceasing worry to opposing elevens as well as a mainstay of reliance to his teammates. JOSEPH P. McCORMICK You have seen him at right end. Heavy, yet quite fast. " Joe Mac " was a man. Seldom was his position circled. His tackling was ever hard and sure. His size enables him to keep off the opposing tackle, on plajrs when our tackle was needed elsewhere. All we need to say is that he is a brother to " Big Mac " and a whole lot like him. HOWARD C. VADEN Vaden is one of our invincible guards. He is a human sticking plaster. Always on the job, busting up plays and keeping plays from being busted up. A hustler and a hard worker. Our " Goog, " with never a defeated droop to that big mouth of his. Never whines, just pure grit and determination. Pacre One Hundred and Two BUFFALO LARRY WESTMORELAND Like a mountain torrent, as it rushes downward on its course, " Westy " dropped in upon us from North Carolina. His sojourn here was short, for he soon departed as he came. In many a game he struck terror into the hearts of the opposing line-up, for this big half-back would never stop plunging. LUTHER M. FEATHERS This 180 pounds of human energy is every ounce a man. " Luke " lives near Johnson City, but prefers to keep his " Hart " in Pikeville. He is as firm as the rock of Gibraltar and always responded from his position at half-back when called on. We are glad indeed that " Luke " will be with us next year. GEORGE W. HARDIN " Senator " just naturally gets through and gets a man before anyone suspects he ' s on the job. On the gridiron, he not only displays that mental alertness which makes him rank so high as a debater, but he displays that physical alertness also. George is an example of that type of student which is valuable to a college in both the literarj ' and the athletic field. Page One Hundred and Three 91 W 1923 13 =ira r Jf :|!®5! Hllf®!

He has that keen eye, which causes him to run up a beautiful score. " Lefty " is one of the fastest and best forwards that ever trod the basketball floor of " Old Milligan. " JOE B. JARED Behold our " Jody " again approaches! Although he excells in football, he also typi- fies the best that Milligan offers in basketball. He is leaving an irremediable gap in our ranks this year. Forward — Appalachian Association, ' 23. FLEMING TOLD The boy that has that business-like appearance, was unanimously chosen for manager for the year, ' 23. An efficient manager, Fleming was capable, always ready, and he was especilly alert on trips when the opposite sex was near. Fleming deserves great credit for his hard work and skillful management. S. GAVID MITCHELL Little Gavid at running guard, has shown his ability in basketball by being selected on the All-Conference team. Gavid was a perfect little pest, being everywhre the ball was, and he has an eye that caused Milligan to hang up several victories. " Mitch " leaves us in June for Annapolis where we wish him well. Pafi:e One Hundred and Five nn PHILIP SAWYER " Squatty " at stationary guard was almost invincible. He carries with him on the floor only 194 pounds, but he has it so geared that he can shift in high, immediately the ball comes in his territory. Phil has fought at guard for three j ' ears and has won much fame in the Conference, in basketball, football and baseball. " Squatty " has the distinction of being the only three-letter-man on the hill. BARTLETT McCORMICK, Captain-elect The boy who made the wheel turn for a successful season. " Mac " is only six feet four inches, but he puts six feet into every game. He possesss that fighting spirit which will win for him a star in life as well as a star in basketball. He does not stop at basket- ball, but he also turns like an electric wheel in football as well. " Mac " was unanimously chosen to pilot the squad for, ' 24. ROBERT ANDERSON " John B. " is a little timid in his pursuit of the fair sex but you ought to see him go after basketball ! He ' s not backward there ! " Bob " was one of our main-stays this year — Tarzan of the Court. ELMER HODGES The boy who has fought for the Orange and Black for three years. Elmer ' s regular position is center, guard or forward. In some ways Elmer has won the hearts of his fellow students and rightly so, especially of the feminine sex. He has been a faithful and hard worker in basketball as well as football. Page One Hundred and Si: !l JJ BUFFALO VVILLARD MILLSAPS Millsaps is our speedy, popular short-stop in baseball and a star forward in basketball. An " A " man in athletics as well as mental gymnastics. An unfortunate attack of appendi- citis kept him from doing his best work, but we know what to expect of him next year. JOE McREYNOLDS Joe was another who possessed that loyal spirit. " Mack " was used in the Varsity quite a bit this year. When on the second team, he played guard, forward or center, all in stellar form. ALFRED KEEFAUVER To the boy who puts the " pep " into the ' arsity. It is " Alf ' s " fighting that made many a Varsity man " pep up. " Keefauver has battled for three straight years, with that determination that causes him to win. We need more men with the spirit of " Alf. " DAYTON HODGE Dayton, the smallest one of the Hodge duet in basketball this season, showed much aggressiveness and pluck. Dayton is a snappy, sturdy, bustling, likable lad of hardwork- ing zeal. Page One Hundred and Seven QJ 192 IE ROSCOE SHEPPARD When it comes to pitchers we ' ve got them, short and tall, but " Shep " isn ' t very tall, just six feet seven inches. Why shouldn ' t he be a star? Well he is, and that amounts to all, he can hit like a terrific cyclone. VICTOR CROUCH, Assistant Manager The assistant manager who wears a smile. Victor has been very efficient in his management and has been unanimously elected as manager for 1924. " Vick " is that boy you see behind the batter for the second team, he is the one who puts the " pep " in all the boys. COACH WICKER " Tiny " Wicker — they call him, well, he isn ' t so very large — physically speaking, but mentally he ' s a whale in that every team he has coached has distinguished itself. His work in aiding the team cannot be over-estimated and he has made for himself a permanent place in the esteem of the entire school. We love our " Tiny. " ROBERT ANDERSON, Captain and Manager It is " Bob " who holds down the initial sack so efficiently. If you ask what his calling might be — Well it ' s baseball. This motto could be his : " There may be vocations and avocations, but as for me, give me baseball ' er give me death. " Page One Hundred and Eight V li 1 LUTHER FEATHERS Our right fielder, well he is a baseball player in need and a baseball player indeed. When you look for a good fellow ever to be depended upon, you will be sure to find " Luke, " our " Luke. " WILLARD MILLSAPS That short-stop, shark, " Sap. " He is a regular star, wherever they are. Did you ever hear the expression " greased lightning? " Well, " Sap " must be the originator, because that is what he is. CHESTER BLEVINS Who is he? Can ' t you guess? Is he your great catcher? Yes! Mercy, he ' s one from the heavens. Nobody else but Chester Blevins. PHILIP SAWYER " Phil " Sawyer alias " Squatty. " Can he play? " Does he strut his stuff? " " That ' s what, he don ' t do anything else, " but maybe he can ' t pitch at all — ask me if he " don ' t " fan ' em all. When he hits, they surely do roam — All he does is just walk ' em home. Pase One Plundred and Nine fJS SPf JCTA GILBERT HARTSELL What a centerf ielder ! You have heard of things being unimaginable. To get along without " Gib " is just that way. He can catch anywhere and anyway, and he can hit ' em high or hit ' em low but he always puts the fielders on the ground. JOHN A. BROYLES They come and they go, They ' re fast and they are slow. But Johnny keeps the same old pace and dreads not the look on any pitcher ' s face, Johnny has held down left field for four years and during that period has established a record that gives him the distinction of being one of the best fielders in this Conference. WILLIAM FERGUSON " Bill " Ferguson is another of our pitchers. He is the boy that wears that smile, not only on the mound but around the girls as well. Well, " Willie, " never cuts practice, neither does he cut conference. " Bill " hurled up his state last year with not a single defeat on it. Why shouldn ' t we be proud of our " Bill? " EVERETTE BEASLEY Our noted twirler — He not only coaxed the " Aint he grands? " from the lady baseball fans, but also from those interested in football. Success brings forth the grin. ' .K Page One Hundred and Ten :li, J ' BARTLETT McCORMICK In football and basketball they call him " Big Mac. " But you for some unknown reason call him " Big Woman " in baseball. " Mac " is that long, lanky, right fielder, that never smiles, but alwa3 ' S grunts. JOE McREYNOLDS He may be quiet but he sure makes big noises on our team. You have heard the tale of that tortoise and the hare — slow but sure — well that is Joe. ALFRED TAYLOR LOVE That boy Loved, Lovliest, Love, our indispensable, " Stirer of pep. " His good playing is worthy of commendation, heaps of it. Although he has been with us a short while, one would never perceive his newness because, he fits right in. He ' s that " loved " boy on third base. HOLLIS PROFFITT Our only " Lefty, " and believe me this " Lefty " business goes hand in hand with " Ole Lady Luck, " or maybe " Ole Man Skill. " We would not know, but think his good playing due both to luck and skill. Page One Hundred and HJleven ELIZABETH HAMLETT " Private " says, " You ought to see my girl play basketball and he is right about it. " Liba " plays a great game ! She comes to us from the Kiiigsport team on which she starred for several successive seasons. This year she was the main-stay and nucleus of the Milligan Quintette, always bringing us victory by her spectacular playing. ADA BESS HART The girl with that vampish smile was unanimously chosen as manager. Ada is a guard, and a guard she is. She only smiles at her victims when they accidentall} ' run into her. We are proud of our " Wee Midget " on both the floor and the triangle. HESTER MOREDOCK " Heck ' s " ability to " fight a good fight " has been a distinctive value on the basketball floor. She, together with Ada Bess, formed an invincible combination at guard. " Heck " deserves great credit for her faithfulness and " grit. " We need more like her, our good old " Heck. " ROBERTA BAKER A favorite on the basketball floor as well as the triangle. A good center. She always manages to get the ball and indirectly helps the forwards run up the score. She ' ll make a better record ne.xt year with proper training. Page One Hundred and Twelve 3IIFL x,--ii,c.:ji ' LOUISE KEEFAUVER Have you noticed the girl with the athletic swing about her? That is " Keewhacker. " She is right there with the strength and endurance and clear head. Louise possesses that fighting spirit which helped her team-mates so much when they were on the floor. VERNA HUDDLESTON " Red " put " pep " into the game, on the floor or off. She showed her aljility and equality with the regular players when she was in the game. We could always count on " Red " — so we were never faint-hearted when our subs were run in. HELEN MITCHELL Helen plays basketball, of course, as she does everything else, with a fighting determi- nation to do her best. As a result she is one of our stellar performers as forward, nothing slow about the way Helen gets across, nothing awkward about the way she passes the ball. After all she is just another " Mitch. " LOUISE TURNER She ' s little, light and quick. Finds the baskets easy. A little more training and practice will make a first-rate player of Louise. She gets over the floor easy — knows how ' to handle the ball and she ' ll be one who will contend for a first place on the Varsity for ' 24.

" LETTERS FROM AUNT SALLIE It is strange how even COLLEGE stu- dents persistently retain the childish trait of appealing to others for aid. They just dearly love to burden others with their woes as you can guess from the following letters by good-standing Milligan students taken from an up-to-date magazine. Dear Aunt Sallie : I reckon you will say I ' m not exactly liright when I tell you my troubles, but rather than that, Aunt Sallie, you should pity me. I am in a predicament that I ' m sure is getting the best of me. I thought this to be an age of " Make Believe. " Yes, I have been told that, and so I foolishly asked a girl here, Frances Wheeler by name, to marry me. She joyously accepted and I thought she realized I was onlj ' joking but, no. She told everyone and believes it herself. Am I really engaged, since I was only joking when I asked her? This is a deuce of a fix I ' m in. — Robert Burns Potter. Robert Burns Potter: I should say you are engaged ! A little more and you would have been beyond the reach of mortal help. The only way I can conceive to help you is this : Act neglectful ; flirt with other girls ; be untidy in your Page One I-Iundred and Thirty-six i3Urir.A,LO ANDERSON HARDWARE CO.

If this doesn ' t work j ' ou are doomed ; for it is contrary to all rules of etiquette for the boy to break the engagement. Yes, I do pity you. Dear Aunt Sallie : What colors do you think would be most becoming to me? I am twenty-five years old, weigh about 140 pounds, and am rather tall. And what do you think I should eat and wear to be at my best at all times? — Frenchie. Dear Frenchie : From your description of yourself, I think j ' ou should wear red or blue or green, and I would advise you to eat food and wear clothes. Of course this should be carefully done and it largely depends on circumstances.

Smythe, Vice-President and Gen ' l Mgr., National Business College, Roanoke, Virginia. Dear Professor Smythe: - ■ I certainly appreciate ver_y much what you have done for my brother. I am glad to tell you that I have another brother that I am going to try to get to attend the National Business College just as soon as he is old enough. I shall always boost the National Business College because I know what it is and what it stands for. I am getting along fine with my work, and I am liking it better all the time. I do not know whether I told you or not, but when I came home from school last July, I started to work in a local bank as Individual Bookkeeper, I worked at that bank until the first of October when I came to the Tennessee Trust Compan} of which I am now cashier. Of course I attribute my rapid promotion to my training in the " National " and the association with the faculty. I think I shall visit your school in the near future and attend the chapel exercises. I got some good lessons in chapel while I was a student there. Thanking you again for your past favors, I remain, Your friend, C. W. HENDRIX.

Hindword You have turned page by page until you have come to the end — now you either like it or you don ' t like it. If you do, say " Fine, " if you don ' t, say " Bum " — we already know that; so just give fifteen " Rahs " that you are the lucky guy who is reading and not working. Try to enjoy it, Gentle Reader, for you have paid for it. If your idea didn ' t get in — wrap it up carefully and send it to us. We will call a conference of the wisest of men, lay it on the table, turn it on all edges and look at it. If it pleases some and displeases others, we will call the photographer to take its picture. After days of patiently waiting for material on which to put it the Art Department will burn midnight oil skill- fully designing and delicaeh ' touching with a brush vmtil it looks better than you ever dreamed it could. Then we will rush it to the engraver who will imprint it — never to be erased. When it returns something must be said to tell just what it is so Webster is pulled off the shelf and inexpressible words searched for to express it, having received its cognomen the printer claims it for a time; when the ink is inked and the backs are backed; — when the Ads have been added and the bills billed — your idea is ready for you. So if you have an Idea " Can It " for another year for " To be or not to be " that is not the question — it has already been done for 1923. Best wishes, THE EDITRESS.
