" The Staff of the ' 24 Buffalo, however, does not predict the awful fate that follows the want- ing balance. We merely record here the ex- periences, the joys, the successes, and the happi- ness of our sojourn in old Milligan and then pass on out, — out from these sacred, classic halls to meet the problems and tasks of life. If, dear reader, while you peruse these pages at some future time, and feel the glow of pleasant memories, if there arises the old time love for your Alma Mater, — " reared against the sky, " and if you resolve, thenceforth, to renew your allegiance to her, then, and only then, shall the Buffalo of ' 24 deem itself worthy of being called a success. In this volume, we have endeavored to record the spirit of college life; we have tried to breathe our profoundest appreciation to the hon- ors of Milligan; and we have expressed our thanks to that host of business men who have come to our financial aid by means of adver- tising. And now, reader, proceed to the pages that lie before you, and when you shall have come to THE END close your eyes and silently breathe a prayer for that institution to which we all owe so much.

It was just at the close of the Civil War that Doctor Caswell Taylor ' s daughter, now Mrs. Jane Millard of Johnson City, taught school in the Old Buffalo log church where the present church now stands. The people became inter- ested, and her brother Isaac Taylor, in 1867 or 1868 obtained a charter for a school to be known as Buffalo Institute, which he and the neighbors planned to build. W. G. Barker united with them and became the first teacher in the new building: then followed Professor Turner and later Pro- fessor Akard, who closed his work in the spring of 1875. Having learned of the situation, through J. D. Hamaker and Samuel Shelbourne, Prof. Josephus Hopwood decided to make in- vestigations. In August, 1875, he came to Johnson City, then a town of 1500 people. He was kindly entertain- ed overnight in the home of W. C. Maupin and on the next morning heard him preach in the school house on Science Hill. The disciples had no house of worship and only a few members. On the following morning a party went to Buffalo Institute on a prospecting tour. The house was a two-story brick, 36x40, with two rooms. It was situated on one acre of land which had been donated by Joshua Williams. After looking over the building and grounds and getting together the Board of Trustees : W. G. Barker, C. C. Taylor, J. D. Price, Pickney Wil- liams, Sam W. Hyder and others, the agreement was made. Prof. Hopwood was to pay interest on the debt of $1250.00 which was against the property. It was on August 19th, the first anniversary of their marriage, that Mrs. Hopwood arrived from Kentucky to assist Prof. Hopwood in the work. They took board half a mile away with " Uncle Pickney " Williams, as he was affectionately called. This was an excellent family and made a most congenial home for Prof, and Mrs. Hop- wood. When asked what board he would charge, the good man replied, " Well, I wouldn ' t charge you anything, but you know I ' ve got eleven gals to shoe and I guess I ' ll have to charge you $2.00 a week. " The county had no money for public schools that year, nor the year following, so Prof. Hop- wood set out to canvass the community for sub- scription students. School opened early in Sep- tember, and both of these good souls entered with enthusiasm into the work. During the first quarter they found it necessary to live nearer to the school : hence, they leased a small two-room cottag ' e and one acre of ground adjoining the school lot. Later this was bought from S. W. Hyder for $500.00, for a private home. Its im- mediate clooryard is now occupied by the larg ' e locust tree in front of Hardin 1 [all. The first school-year was a very happy one. At the close of it a public examination was given and a rising young man named A. A. Taylor was chosen to make the literary address. Vacation was spent largely in canvassing for students. On Morgan, his blooded Kentucky horse, Prof. Hopwood travelled twenty to forty miles in every direction. • Page Seven Early History of Milligan College (Continued) □ The problem of securing land adjoining the school was long and difficult of solution. Finally, a fair campus and playground were obtained. In the summer of 1878, Prof. Hopwood leased the entire property for twenty-one years. After the leases, putting up houses became an engrossing subject and a large dining-room and kitchen were added to the cottage, some other buildings brought up and attached to it, and a second story put over it all. Soon there were three sides of a square of buildings, double porches all around, and two good cisterns in the little green court. Up to this time they had carried water from the spring by the creek. Later at the southeast corner of the square a deep well of the finest water was dug. About sixty students was the capacity, but several neighbors opened their homes and took excellent care of a number of the boys and girls, year by year. Plans were being laid for erecting larger school buildings. A small frame building was put up on the lower side of the yard for younger classes. In the summer of 1880, one hundred and fifty thousand hand-made brick were burned on the school grounds. At the same tim.e a building, now the Hendrix home, was in the pro- cess of erection. This was to meet the demands for a o-irls ' ' home. After July the tenth, the men went to the woods, cut the logs, hauled them to the saw mills, sawed and seasoned the lumber, worked it all by hand, dug out the foundation, and had the building ready for Samuel Shelburne and family to occupy by the last of August. In April, 1881, the ' corner stone of the new college building was laid. For this occasion Col. N. G. Taylor had been engaged to give the ad- dress, but was unable to come: so Prof. Hopwood addressed the students and friends, dedicating the building to the cause of Christian Education, and announcing the name, Milligan College. The summer ' s work on the college building was di- rected by Henry Crouch, the father of Will; Ed, and Adam, all of whom later became alumni of the college and who are now prominent in the affairs of life. Thus, we have the brief history of the early days of Milligan College — a college that has grown and prospered with the passing years, sending forth men and women of true Christian character and noble ideals to bless the world.

Page Thirteen Mrs. H. J. Derthick. Dean of Women The success and progress of Milligan College in all departments and in all phases of its many activities is due for the most part to the president who bears will- ingly and prayerfully and well the tremendous burden of raising funds for the support of the great work which he, though absent most of the time, directs and en- courages so successfully. He is a man — a man among men — tried in the fires of criticism, but staunch and firm he stands, a true friend, a true man, a true Ameri- can. H. J. Derthick, President President Derthick could not have accomplished all that he has, were it not that he has associated with him a group of efficient officers and teachers — loyal men and women — who are pouring their souls ardently into every phase of the college life. Happy should be the heart of the boy or the girl into whose life there has come the joy of those who " know whom they have believed, " and when these boys and girls go out from Milligan Col- lege, we feel that they have such firm faith and trust that " though the} ' trip and fall, they shall not blind their souls with clay.

Many men can do things when kindly encouraged ; few men can do things in spite of circumstances. That individual who gains a college education because he absolutely refuses to be conquered by circumstances is one for whom we all have the profoundest admir- ation. An example of this type of man came to us last September as a former student of President Derthick, bringing with him a record of creditable achievements among which was graduating from Hazel Green Academy (Ky.) with high honors. For several years he has held the principalship of the High School at McRoberts, Kentucky, and the fact, that he is now on a leave of absence and will return to his employer in the fall is a certain indication of his real success as a teacher as well as his employer ' s high esteem for him. During his academy days he not only won fame as a " star twirler " of the first order, but also carried away the laurels in oratory and debate. At Milligan the same energy, enthusiasm, and interest has made a real contribution to student life on the diamond, in the classroom, and on the platform. Doubtless, one secret of Mr. Long ' s success is the inspiration received from the queenly lady who has been faithful at his side since a little while after his graduation from Hazel Green Academy, and from which institution she is also a graduate — Mrs. Long.

" So long as we love, we serve, So long as we are loved by others, I would almost say we are indispensable. " The rarest gifts of feminine charm, made the more beautiful because always so coy, demure, and reticent, amply adorn the figure and form which so familiarly moves in and out in Hardin Hall with subdued voice and apologetic step. ' Tis Gertrude. " A violet by a mossy stone, Half hidden from the eye, Fair as a star, when only one, Is shining in the sky. " There is sweetness in her seriousness; a joy in her sadness; an elegance in her simplicity; and even an amiableness in her gentle frown. Gertrude is a Puritan princess ; always perfectly and painfully correct; she thinks clearly; acts honestly; labors dutifully ; to her friends ever true ; to her ideals ever loyal. Just as dreams grow holy when put into actions; just as the humblest work grows fair by starry dreaming; just so, all the beautiful idealism of the college girl and all the commonplace duties of a life of realities blend in the rhythm of a sweet personality and thus, Gertrude, our hearts, one and all, attend thee. age Twenty one Editor-in-chief of Trident, ' 23- ' 24; Associate Editor of ' 24 Buffalo; Varsity Basket- ball, ' 22- ' 23- ' 24; Inter-col- legiate Debate, ' 23- ' 24. " How beautiful her youth ! How bright it gleams With its illusions, aspirations, dreams, Book of beginnings ; story without end, Our Helen, a heroine, and wisdom, her friend. " Eive happy, helpful, swiftly passing years, Helen Mitchell and " Milligan College have walked hand in hand, together passing through the fires of tribula- tion and together upon the ashes of the old Milligan dreaming dreams. Dreams that have come true in the new Milligan, arising as if by magic out of the old ; dreams that have come true in her own life ' s structure, in truth, honor, integrity, and literary achievements ; building into her character strength and power for the conquests of life. Helen has ever exemplified the true spirit and ideals of Milligan. Very rare and precious elements were compounded in the forming of her character. We find her always genuine, modest, never careless nor idle, ever true, sweet, and efficient ; excelling in all class- work and scholarship, strong in debate, prominent in literary society, faithful in spiritual activities, a star, in athletics. She set for herself high standards in all phases of the college life, performing every duty with grace and dignity, contributing richly to every depart- ment. She has now attained the goal, and Milligan crowns her, not only with her collegiate honors, but with her love; and sends her forth to her life ' s career with the tenderest benediction.

Johnson City is the proud metropolis from which hails our " Little Nell. " She loves the Sunny South, she loves Sunny Tennessee, and she loves beautiful Johnson City; yet, her love for these is excelled by her love for her Alma Mater. For a little while she ventured into other educa- tional circles and Milligan was deprived of her gentle- ness and helpfulness, but fortune restored her to us and the classic Milligan hill again received the bright- ness and cheer of her scintillating presence. Miss Nelle is one of our " A " students. If she ever gets a " B, " it is when she has failed to work her combination of wit, wisdom, and work ; of confidence, continuance, and charm upon her professor. She impresses you with her sincerity and with her genuine and whole-hearted belief in Milligan. She believes in her policies and principles, and especially in that institution locally known as " conference, " where she shines as one of the most brilliant of its fixed stars. We are never left in doubt of her ability, although she never tries to impress us with her importance. We shall miss her happy interest in everything, and we predict for her an abundant success. ige Twenty -three Varsity Football, ' 20- ' 21- ' 22- ' 23 ; Captain Football, ' 23 ; Member of Student Council, ' 21- ' 22; Varsity Basketball, ' 21- ' 22- ' 23; President of Athenian Literary Society, " 23 ; Annual Staff ' 24. Elmer came to us four years ago from Boone ' s Creek, a vicinity made famous by Daniel Boone, his tree, and his " bar. " Like this old pioneer, Elmer has overcome all difficulties in a quiet, unassuming, and forceful manner. He has made a record as a star athlete and clean player, both at football and basket- ball. As a public speaker, especially when talking of football, Elmer " struts his stuff. " When not studying on some difficult lesson, he spends his time by making speeches. Elmer has given his best to his Alma Mater in athletics, classroom work, and conference. Just a serious word about " Hedge " as he has lived among us would be fitting. He has always been loyal to Milligan in every sense of the word. Not only is he a great athlete and student, but he is one of the strongest and most forceful characters in school. Elmer ' s influence is like the undertow in a stream, powerful and compelling " , yet causing not a ripple on the surface. Quiet, unassuming, he makes himself felt in all things pertaining to college life. May Milligan gain more like you, Elmer! We predict for you a great future ; for as a boy acts in school, so does he in life. Page Twenty-four WILLIAM E. HYDER, B. S Johnson City, Tennessee President of Senior Class ; American Literary Society; Varsity Football, " ' 21- ' 22- ' 23- ' 24; Business Manager of Buffalo, ' 24; Trident Staff, ' 24. Several years ago there came into Milligan halls a young man familiarfy and affectionately known as " Skinny " Hyder. With the exception of one year, Bill has been right here since his first coming; and during these years " Skinny " has creditably discharged every duty pertaining to the college, the major duties of the President and Dean possibly excepted. If a student ' s intrinsic business ability can be measured in terms of his versatility, and his proficiency in perform- ing the many outside tasks which can be assigned by the authorities, we are safe in pronouncing Bill a genius in business. Recognizing this outstanding char- acteristic in Bill, the students have regularly made him business manager of all college publications. The many duties required of him were insufficient to keep a chance arrow of the little blind god, Dan Cupid, from piercing his warm heart; although the object of his affection is his college senior by one short year, indications are that he is about to suc- cumb to the wound inflicted by cupid two years ago. His recovery seems dangerously slow. Dependibility, earnestness, and loyalty have char- acterized " Skinny ' s " part in all activities. On the gridiron he distinguished himself as a guard and remained as firm as the rock of Gibraltar for four successive years. A practical, though very successful career is predicted for our genial good friend, Wil- liam E. Hyder. Page Twenty-five Buffalo Staff, ' 24; Varsity Basketball, ' 24; Secretary of Senior Class. Alfred Keefauver closes with his present senior year an honorable career of four years at Milligan College. .Alfred was painfully conscious of himself when he arrived on the hill. But, as the years went on, he learned more and more the functions of the will and gained in self-esteem and mental poise and vigor. He did not become afflicted with the almost fatal disease which attacks many sophomores, nor is he going out into the world like some seniors, to solve all of its vexing problems. He has learned how to secure " conference " and to speak to a girl, sometimes, without blushing. Alfred has always been one of our fastest " subs " in basketball, and a very useful pitcher for our baseball team. This year he will bear his equal share with " Wild Bill " and " Squatty Phil " on the mound. Keefauver has many friends in Milligan who wish for him great success in his chosen career. He will always find a welcome when he returns to Milligan Wherever Alfred goes, Milligan will have a friend and he will recommend her to young men and women everywhere by the high ideals he has always had and by the clean young manhood he will bestow upon the community that is so fortunate as to be selected for his future home.

One day in September, bright in the history of our school, three years ago, " Battlitt " arose from his home .in Algood, courageously braved a journey over the Tennessee Central and pitched his tent in the promised land of Milligan. " Big Mac " immediately became famous on the football field, the basketball court, and at playing " Mutt and Jeff " on the triangle during the so-called conference. " Mac " has held office in all student organizations, but this year he has been unan- imously elected as president of the " Ex-Courter ' s Club. " " Mac ' s " chief amusements are athletics, organic chemistry, reading the Johnson City Chronicle, and sleeping. , His presence will be missed sorely on the athletic field, where_ he is a three-letter man; in the class- room; and in the student body. No words ' are ade- quate to express appreciation for a man of his caliber. " Big Mac " is a name exactly fitting the man. It is a term of endearment used by all who know him, both teachers and students. " Big Mac, " big in body, big in brain, big in heart and above all, big in the business of being a man. His influence for good will be felt for years to come and the college has been bettered to a great extent by his life in it. Page Twenty-seven JOHN C. McKISSICK, B. S Sweetwater, Texas President American Literary Society, ' 24; Associate Edi- tor of Buffalo, ' 24; Assistant Business Manager of Tri- dent, ' 24; Inter-Society Ora- tor. Don Juan McKissick " breezed " in from the wilds of Texas last year and " stampeded the ranch " for a while. He proved to be a gay Lothario with quite a ro- mantic turn of mind, however, and a fair matadorina succeeded partially in taming his impetuous onrush. Having practical and literary antecedents, however, he so charmed his fair captor that she rather de- lighted in exhibiting her trophy. Don Juan romances in the liquid Castilian and prattles in the patois of the Mexican greaser. After a varied career educationally and romantically, he became sufficiently civilized to become a grave and reverend senior. Not content with his literary acquirements, he entered the ranks of the orator, and represented his society in this capacity. He took high place in the final and will, in the future, if he cares to try, astonish the natives in some outburst of eloquence. We prophesy a successful termination of his plans in any line in which he may become interested. He will put through a convplete and strenuous round-up. If Aesculapius smiles upon him, we shall hear of successful " ' carvings " of his name upon the scroll of fame.

In the dark, dim, and distant past, Luke resigned as mayor of Turkey Town to come to Milligan. Although Turkeytown lost a great and valuable offi- cial, we gained a man : — one worthy of the name, in all respects. Luke has played all positions on the baseball team, all except three in football. In science he is a genius; in athletics, a star; in time of need a friend. In fact Luke is one of the most gracious and hearty fellows in his manner that we have at Milligan. One thing we do know, wherever Luke may roam, in whatever field of endeavor he may try his hand, his heart will be at Milligan. Let us think seriously for a moment of the man who is leaving us and who will be so hard to replace. We are losing a perfect gentleman, a man who is destined to carve his name high up on the shaft of scientific achievement, a true, loyal and devoted friend to his fellows, to his faculty, and to his Alma Mater. In his every day life he reminds us of a stanza of an old song. If your life becomes a tangle, Full of toil arid care ; Smile a bit as you journe3 f , Others ' burdens share. You ' ll forget all your troubles, Making their lives bright Skies will grow blue and sunny, If your heart keeps right.

Robert Tipton Anderson, otherwise known as " John B. " closes an honorable college career with the class of 1924. Always gentle, manly, and pleasant, he goes into the life of business which he has chosen with the love and respect of his teachers, the gobdwill and goodwishes of the under-graduates, and the warm regard of every member of the senior class. " Bob " has always been one of our stand-bys in baseball and we regret to lose him. His basketball career has not been as brilliant, until this year, when he saved the day for us on several occasions. He was humorously referred to as " Roost " and the " Okolona Flash " during the basketball season. He certainly . did roost upon the perch of many an opponent and was wide-awake while doing so ; and his flashes of furious offensive and defensive were by no means infrequent. " John B. " will be in business with Anderson Hard- ware Co., and Johnson City and Milligan will have mother life-long friend in that firm. Here ' s to John B.

Livingston, Tennessee President of Philomathean Literary Society, ' 24; Var- sity Basketball, ' 22- ' 23- ' 24; Annual Staff, ' 24. Four things one must learn to do; To think without confusion clearly, To love his fellowmen sincerely, To act from honest motives purely, To trust in God and Heaven securely. _ Hester Moredock hails from the little city of Liv- ingston, bringing with her these qualities so charac- teristic. Her disposition, charming sincerity, tireless energy, and high ideals have made for her a perma- nent place in our hearts. Hester is the sort to whom comrades go for advice, and whose advice brings the needed results. Magnanimity and good sportsmanship combine to make Hester ready on every occasion. She is as true as the needle to the pole or the dial to the sun. By dent of patience and by instinctive service to others, Hester has come to be the veritable Flor- ence Nightingale of Hardin Hall. No matter how late the how nor how difficult the task, there, is a way out of it if " Heck " is near. Her versatility enables her to do any task from patching up a love affair to bobbing hair. An athlete from head to foot. When the girls don the " Orange and Black " for next season in basketball somebody will say, " Where is dear old Heck? " Hester is never idle ; serves faithfully her kind ; has her way with the waiters; is general " factotum " for the boys ; and with it all is the angel of mercy on the classic hill. Page Thirty-one Class History □ In accordance with the time-honored, new-old custom, we, the class of 1924, beg leave to put down in black and white some of the things we have done, the impressions we have received, and knowledge we have gained, during the four years we have dwelt within the walls of old Milligan ; so that, in the years to come, if perhaps our children ' s children shall wend their way to this schoolhouse on the hill, they shall know that we have been here. We do not claim to leave behind us a spectacu- lar history. We do not say, " We came, we saw, we conquered. " We only know that we have put into the four years our best efforts, always, though sometimes it has seemed to fall far short. We have wondered why we could not kick the football farther, pound the typewriter harder, run the race a little faster, and speak the speech a little better and without hesitation. But through it all we feel that we have received in equal measure just what we have put into the hours. At least, as we leave our colleg-e, we know that we shall feel stronger and safer because we can take with us some of the spirit of Milligan which has inspired us to learn our lessons while here, and which we are counting on to help us answer the greater riddles of life — out in the world. Each class has its own personality. Some are mighty and some are weak ; some are rich and some are poor. Our class of 1924 is not the largest, nor yet the smallest — yet, we shall never find another we would rather serve. Our first impressions of Milligan draw away, and we scan them with curiosity, and wonder how we ever looked on these classrooms as places of dull care and dreaded lessons. For now, that we are about to depart, the mosaic of our recent years takes form and reveals to us a new, yet ever familiar, panorama of the life we have learned to know at old Milligan. There comes a horde of confusing impressions and sen- sations — not least among them, a sense of sad- ness at the parting — for, Milligan, we love you! " Oh, long will our hearts with memory be filled, For here have our doubtings and troubles been stilled. We can go from thy shadow to do what we will, But thy teachings and precepts will be with us still.

CLYDE HUGHES Milligan College, Tennessee American Literary Society. age Fifty-one Our Heritage And Our Responsibility The past history of Milligan College is im- mense. It is firmly founded upon principles that shall last throughout the ages. This foundation, like all foundations for magnificent structures, has been concealed, more or less, from the eyes of the world. It has been an unpretentious, strong and solid piece of workmanship. The men and the women who have struggled and sacri- ficed in laying this foundation ; those who by the sweat of the brow and by the fatigue of the brain, have planned wisely and have builded well the solid groundwork of Milligan College ; those men and those women have done the first and most important work, in order that the great structure might stand even after the) ' have " passed to where beyond these voices there is peace. " But the past history of Milligan College is only the firm foundation for the magnificent structure that may now be seen to tower unto the heights. There are going into this building every day the strength and the life of those who are toiling night and day, that there may be a building made, not by hands, but by the very souls of the builders. And now the structure be- gins to " loom in the sun and the stars, and has a soul. " The work of the novice clad in green and the work of the seer clad in black enter into the structure and make it great. Their souls form a part of the soul of the ascending building. We now resolve to build well the part that is assigned to us. But the present magnificent structure, built upon the great foundation of the past, is only the ground floor of a more stately mansion to be erected as the endless ages roll. The work, the life, and the soul of every man and of every woman who has toiled on this sacred hill, have become a part of the great soul of the future of Milligan College and this soul will grow from greatness unto greatness, and this building will become a super-structure. The past of Milligan College is immense ; the present is magnificent ; the future is sublime. Page Fifty-two UNCLASSIFIED Too low they build, who build beneath the stars. — Young.

Page Sixty-three The Ministerial Association □ Milligan ' s Ministerial Association has a host of hallowed memories of great men of God who have passed through Milligan halls and are today penciling the horizon of fame with lives of Christian service. These lives of yesterday lend a charm to the present and give added courage to the younger ministers in preparation. Milligan College has always stood out as a strong Chris- tian College that has offered abundant opportuni- ties and excellent training to the men who desir- ed above all things to preach the Gospel. Among those in the past who have availed themselves of these opportunities have been such men as W. H. Book, B. A. Abbot, A. A. Ferguson. F. F. Bullard, W. J. Shelburne, Geo. P. Rutledge, R. E. Elmore, W. P. Crouch, and scores of other men who have helped to shape the destiny of the religious world. The spirit that moved these men still remains at Milligan ; the purposes, too, that burned in their hearts, still burn in the hearts of those who are here now — that purpose is to preach the Gospel and by so doing take the world for Christ. . The members of the Association come from all parts of the country and bring with them their respective contributions to the Association and also to the churches which they serve. By associ- ation with others in a common cause, each young minister receives the benefit of all ideas that are suggested. In the regular weekly meetings the various active ministers give reports from their respective fields and offer helpful suggestions. The Association owes a great debt of love and gratitude to Professor A. I. Myhr who has so kindly and sympathetically sponsored and father- ed this organization. Mention should also be made of the addresses brought by various mem- bers of the faculty. J. J. Musick, the most experienced of the young ministers, has charge of the Second Chris- tian Church of Johnson City. He has been there only a short time, but is organizing the work and moving it forward with new life and vigor. Brother Musick has great plans for this church. J. C. Cutrell preaches for the church at New- port. This work has been started only a short time, but the vigor and push of Bro. Cutrell have combined to put the work in fine condition. He expects to remain at Newport next summer. W. G. Ferguson has been for two years at Cleveland where he has done a constructive work. Brothers Gouge, Johnston, and Tarvin are preaching for a number of places around Milligan. The Association plans to try to enlarge itself from the ranks of the present students and also from others who may be induced to come to Mil- ligan. Our ambition is to be worthy of the record left us by those who have gone before. Page Sixty-four mmsmmi J. J. MUSICK A man who stands well with his fellows physically, intellectually, and spiritually. He is one of the most promising preachers that has ever passed through the halls of Milligan. His kindliness, his happy disposition, his devotion to duty, and above all, his love for the old Gospel, mark him as an outstanding preacher, and leader among men. ARCHIE GRAY They tell us that the far North breeds mild, sober men, but men of action just the same. In Mr. Gray, we have a striking example of this. While quiet and steady, he is a man who lives by his convictions and does things. CHARLES CUTRELL A man of unbounded energy and enthusiasm, with great ability to make friends and to make things go. He has a strong, rugged personality and a generous spirit. Mr. Cutrell desires above all things else to see the church progressive and practical. His high ideals and broad-mindedness will help to reach that goal. JOE SUGGS Joe is different— he is unique. There is no one quite like ' ' our Joe, " and we are proud of him. Loving all and loved by all in return, he is one of the most congenial fel- lows on the hill. The greatest mirth-maker of Milligan and a real asset to the school. W. G. FERGUSON Aggressive, progressive, expressive, kind-hearted and friendly is Grady, one of the most likeable fellows on Milligan hill. He is a great candidate for the ministry. When known today he is known forever, because Grady is always the same. He will make his way up to the apex of success. E. E. EWING He is quiet, cheerful, agreeable, and friendly. Brother Ewing has taught us the great lesson of patience and perseverance ; for he battles away, never loses any time, is always on the job. He is as steady as a clock and as sturdy as an oak. We believe that he will make an untiring servant for God in whatever field he may labor. M. G. TARVIN A kinder, truer, more sympathetic spirit could not be found than that which burns within the heart of Brother Tarvin. He is open-minded, open-hearted, and open-handed. His wit, his love for humanity, his readiness to serve, and his devotion to truth, guarantee for him a large place in the Master ' s service. Page Sixty-five GLEN EARL PRYOR " Pet " is one of the best looking young men in the ministerial association and is just as good as he looks. He is the possessor of rare good judgment. With this and with his youth and ability to work, we may well expect him to achieve great things for Christ and the Church. JOHN W. GOUGE Brother Gouge is a new recruit to the Milligan Association, but has already proven his loyalty and faithfulness to the cause. He is a hard worker and a persevering student of God ' s word. He has our good wishes and God-speed. THOMAS KEGLEV In " Tommy " we have a quiet, unassuming fellow. And when we think of him, let us do so in the light of that old proverb — " Actions speak louder than words. " Tom is ever there with a helpin g hand and his worth is ineffable. CHARLES W. JOHNSTON Charles is in the ministry because he believes in it. He tells every one about it and means just what he says. He is a temperamental, rushing, brushing, commanding, and very happy fellow. To use his own words he is not a " long-faced, bewhiskered, joy- killing reformer, " but he is one wdio believes and preaches that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a man ' s Gospel, a practical Gospel, and a Gospel of Love. ROY DRUDGE Roy is a quiet, studious, droll, conscientious, helpful, thoughtful and unpretentious friend. He is seldom seen and hardly known, but is the possessor of those valuable characteristics that enable him to make an indelible impression upon the minds of those who do know him. The ministry needs men like Roy. WALTER LOVELESS Walter is a new addition to the ministerial department, but he is proving his value to the association. Full of life and laughter ; congenial and helpful, optimistic and aggres- sive ; he is destined to win a large place for himself, and render valiant service to the Master. EDDIE MOSELY Eddie is a man who is not ashamed to preach the Gospel. He preaches the whole truth and is continuously practising what he preaches. In his school work, his recreation, and his play, he puts his all, and that is just his aspiration in regard to the ministry. We predict for him a great power in the Master ' s cause.

Both the major and the minor sports of modern college organization are indis- pensible ; their intrinsic values, as is often thought, are not to be appraised so much in terms of a strong and sound physique, as in terms of a keen intellect and in terms of a fine spiritual at- tainment — commonly called morale. With a keen appreciation of all these qualities, and the part each plays in building a sturdy and symmetrical character, Milligan College organ- izes and executes a clean and vigorous athletic program from year to year. The latest contribution to the Milligan plant, as well as to the fineness of the Milligan spirit, is a commodious gymnasium, ample in the variety of its departments and adequate in all its appointments to its high mission — literally a temple dedicated to the making of men — an insti- tution within itself for character-building. From the point of view of the development of the en- tire body, this new institution makes its greatest contribution.

Page Ninety-five BARTLETT McCORMICK The opposition tried Big Mac ' s tackle on several occasions, but each time they found it as se- cure as the Rock of Gibraltar. He was a terror in breaking up plays and dreaded by all op- ponents. It was McCormick that recovered a blocked punt against Emory, winning the game. Milligan will lose a fine sport and a hard player when Mac leaves this spring. ELMER HODGES LUTHER FEATHERS When Coach Wicker needed a tackle he turned to Feathers ; when he needed a center he turned to Feathers; when he needed a backfieldman he turn- ed to Feathers ; and he was never disappointed, for Luke was able to deliver the goods. He graduates this spring and Milligan thereby loses her most versatile player. Captain Elmer Hodges led Milligan ' s football team thru the best season in the history of the school. Elmer was always in the thickest of the battle, playing the position of left guard where he was a shin- ing star. Milligan ' s captain never knew the meaning of the word quit and always had his men on their toes. He gradu- ates this spring, leaving be- hind him a very bright foot- ball record. Page Ninety- six SILAS ANDERSON Si will probably make a great singer some day, but at present his voice is needed on the foot- ball field for calling signals. He used his head on every play and seldom did he do the wrong thing. Anderson is fast, a good passer, and a fair dropkicker. He was a great asset to the team despite an injury which hurt his playing. FOREST LITTLE " Private " Little, our captain- elect for ' 24, distinguished him- self on the gridiron last season by earning the name of being Alilligan ' s best linesman. The blonde giant ripped the oppos- ing lines to shreds and made many tackles back of the line of scrimmage. His fighting spirit and grim determination instilled the fight into the rest of the men and made life mis- erable for the opposition. EVERETT BEASLEY As a forward passer he has np equal in college circles. He can also boot that old ball for fifty yards at critical times. That ' s not all Beaz can do, for every team dreads to see him carry the ball. He could hit the line, run the ends, and fight like a tiger. A mighty valuable man was Everett. Page Ninety-seven LESLIE HART " Cotton Top " surely strutted his stuff when he ran with the ball. A hard man to stop at any time, and one dangerous at all times. Less could hit the line, run the ends, and fling a mean pass. He was a mighty good man to have in the back- field and was one of the stars of the Milligan eleven. T. W. CASKEY The best defensive back on the squad. That is a lot to say, but nevertheless, it is true. " Skey " was not fast but he could hit the line like a pile-driver. He was forced to warm the bench most of the season, but when he got his chance he surely did make good. His great work on the defense stopped Lenoir. WILLIAM ZIEGLER He followed his interference with uncanny skill and picked his hole in the line with undue accuracy. Zig ripped the op- posing lines to shreds and always made his gains. The longer he ran the better he was. His trusty toe sent the oval through the uprights from the 35 yard line almost everv time. Zig was there with the goods on all occasions. Page Ninety-eighi DALE ALEXANDER " Daddy " brought the fans to their feet on many occasions, when he leaped high into the air and brought, the old pig- skin down for a gain, or when he dumped the interference and caught the runner for a loss. He was always on the job and few gains were ever registered around his wing. GEORGE HARDIN The surest tackier on the field is what the boys thought about " Senator. " It was almost im- possible to get by Hardin on the gridiron. George not only used his physical alertness on the football field, but also that mental alertness that ranks him so high among the debat- ers ; and these two combined to make him one of Milligan ' s best men. CHARLES CROUCH A fighter from the word " go " until the game ended. He was one of the mainstays of the Milligan line. An injured leg handicapped Charlie part of the season, but he always delivered the goods when called upon. His ability to get his nose in the dirt stopped the opponent ' s center rushes. He has several " Paynes, " but the worst one was not caused by football. Page Ninety-nine BERT WADDELL : ' My, what a tackle ! " " Who blocked that punt ? " . " Who opened that hole for Beasley? " These were the comments from the side lines as Bert per- formed his duties on the foot- ball field. Bert played his first year under the Orange and Black standard and shone bril- liantly in all the contests. " The hardest tackier on the field. " is what all the backs said of him. JOE McCORMICK Heavy, fast and aggressive. Joe was one of the best ends yet produced at Milligan. Sel- dom did the opposition circle his wing for gains. His tack- ling was hard and sure. His size enabled him to be of great value on and off tackle play when he had to handle the op- posing tackle. Joe was mighty- handy in all the games. PHILIP SAWYER " Squatty " famous for his deeds in the past, turned in one of his best seasons in football. He was hard to get by on tin- defense and always opened a gap in the opposing line on the offense. Sawyer earns letters in all three sports and is con- sidered the best all-round athlete on the hill. Few gains are made over " Squatty " in football. ■ ,.: , , mm S g ' -W ii Page One Hundre ALVIN DEAVERS Fortune never smiled on this lad from the Lone Star state. He was hitting his best stride when he broke his ankle at King College. " Tuff " was always in the game fighting, and his stellar playing in sev- eral games ranked him with the best of Milligan ' s linemen. He suffered other injuries dur- ing the season that handicap- ped his playing. HOWARD VADEN When the line was going bad Coach Wicker turned to " Goog. " When one of the tackles was injured it was up to " Goog " to take his place He filled in capably at both tackle and guard. " Goog " was in there fighting all the time and never whined about in- juries or anything else, but always did his best, which hap- pened to be too much for his opponents. WILLIAM HYDER Nothing spectacular about " Skinny V playing, but the op- posing backs found it mighty hard to gain over him. He is not fast on the field, but he always gets in the way of the man carrying the ball, if it is close to his position. Skinny makes the fourth lineman to graduate this spring. His years of service will leave with us pleasant memories. Page One Hundred and One fcf Football □ The team was fortunate to have a man of the the type of Hodges at the helm ; his fighting spirit and great leadership was one of the main factors in Milligan ' s success on the football field. The team was handicapped throughout the season on account of injuries, but the men never lost hope and this one fact is a good reason why Milligan was successful. Coach Wicker prepared his men in a skillful manner and trained them to the finest point. The team was in great shape for the opening struggle at Bluefield, but in- juries during this game, and the practices that followed, put the squad in the worst condition possible for the game with Milligan ' s ancient rival, Maryville College. Deaver, substitute guard, broke a leg at King College. This weak- ened the reserve material of the Buffaloes ' first line of defense. Despite these handicaps this was the most successful season ever enjoyed by a Milligan football team. The five victories were ' Tusculum, Athens, Emory and Henry, Bluefield College, and Lenoir College. The Orange and Black Warriors fell victims to the superior prowess of King College, Carson-Newman Col- lege, and Maryville College. The first game of the season was with Blue- field College of Bluefield, West Virginia, which was won by the Milliganites by the score of 35 to 0. The game was Milligan ' s from the start and the outcome was just a matter of how many points the Buffaloes could score. Zeigler and Hart ripped Bluefield ' s line into shreds while Beasley skirted the ends for gain after gain. The team displayed a nifty brand of ball for the first game of the season. Millig-an was forced to bite the dust in the second encounter of the season which was played at Wilder Park against the strong Garnet team of Maryville College. The score of this brilliant struggle was Maryville 14; Milligan 3. The contest was a hard-fought affair with both teams uncorking a brilliant brand of football. Zeigler and Beasley were terrors on the offense and Maryville was powerless when it came to stop- ping these two lads. Zig ' s trusty toe sent the oval between the uprights from the 30 yard line for Milligan ' s lone marker. Carson-Newman was the next foe Milligan en- countered on the football field and the Jefferson City gang walked over Milligan to the tune of 46 to 0. This game was played at Jefferson City and the Milligan team was seriously crippled. McCormick, Captain Hodges, and J. McCormick were all out of the line-up. The crippled Buf- faloes fought gamely throughout the fray and held the great Parson machine at bay until the last quarter when they were battered into sub- mission. King College ' s famous " Mountain Tornado " swept over the Orange wave of Milligan on Tenneva Field in Bristol like a Texas cyclone, and sent the Buffaloes reeling down in defeat by the score of 40 to 0. Milligan fought with all her power, but the mighty team of King was just a little too much for her. Orr and Sharpe plowed the Milligan line for consistent gains. Zeigler ' s attempted drop kick from the 20 yard line was the closest the Buffaloes came to scor- ing. Tusculum College was the next team the Buf- faloes forced to drink the bitter cup of defeat, when the Milligan team ran rough-shod over them at Tusculum by the score of 46 to 7. The Orange and Black crew displayed a brilliant brand of football in the first two periods but weakened in the second two sessions and Tuscu- lum was allowed to score. Emory and Henry ' s famous Wasps went down in glorious defeat at Wilder Park in Johnson City on Thanksgiving Day. when Bartlett McCor- mick scooped up a blocked punt and raced for a touchdown giving Milligan the game 7 to 6. This game was the most spectacular battle of the season and was replete with brilliant plays from start to finish. Page One Hundred and Two Then let the mind some relaxation take, To come back to the task with fresher heed. — Phoedrus. Page One Hundred and Three ROBERT ANDERSON Granting you that Dempsey is some fighter, don ' t forget that " Roost " is one more scrapper, himself. More than once it has been his fighting that turned the tide of battle our way. Bob is some guard, whether run- ning or stationary. WILLARD MILLSAPS And speaking of running guards, " Sap " will do pretty well. He started the season in grand style, but an injury to his knee caused his withdrawal. But just the same, we all know- that " Sap " has the real ability and the fighting spirit. PHILIP SAWYER Of " Squatty, " captain-elect, lit- tle need be said. Phil is there as his past record shows. We can always count on a real de- fense if " Squatty " is holding down the stationary guard po- sition. Page One Hundred and Four W LESLIE PAYNE With the greatest swiftness he does his stuff. Cool, calm and accurate is " Less. " We must confess that he is liked im- mensely and that his goals are stellar features. There are none who can outplay " Less. " WILLIAM ZEIGLER Shut your eyes and you can plainly see Zeigler " zig-zag- ging " down the floor with the ball. Never a man played on Milligan ' s basketball team who could dribble the ball as " Zig. " Accurate shooting is also in his catalog of basketball. BARTLETT McCORMICK " Big Mac " — about as big as they make them, too — was cap- tain of the team this year. You should see " Big Mac " on the court, a tower of strength, with a suppleness permitting him to move with greatest ease. He jumps, — then just a touch and the ball is in the basket. Page One Hundred and Five RAY GALLOWAY There ' s an old saying — ' " Dyna- mite comes in small packages. " Consider Ray and agree. Tho only a Freshman, he earned a berth on the squad in grand style. ALFRED KEEFAUVER Who is he? Oh, he ' s that for- ward with the uncanny eye for the basket and the never-say- die spirit. Alf ' s alright and we will certainly miss his services next year. DALE ALEXANDER When it comes to a long sweet forward or center, how about Alex? He played a wonderful game for the Orange and Black, but he was kept from his best by an old football in- jury.

She possesses that eternal indomitable spirit that never gives up — never quits. Her spectacular shooting won many games. Here ' s to the future of Captain Payne. □ HELEN MITCHELL Our good old standby and determinedly consistent forward, Helen, always play- ed a great game. She is one of the charter members of the Milligan team. We regret that this bright star will shine no more in Miliigan ' s constella- tion. HESTER MOREDOCK " Heck " is our happy, snappy, scrappy guard. She is quick and always on the job to break up a brilliant play of " the opposition. " Heck " never acknowl- edges defeat, even though the score be against her. We regret that she must leave us this year, but we will always remember her as a true fighter for her team. □ GLADYS PAYNE " Glad " Payne, our brilliant center, came to us last September and hurled her- self into basketball circles. She dis- tinguished herself by her whirlwind playing at center. She always puts it over and brings honor to herself and to her colors. Page One Hundred and Eight LOUISE TURNER Our own little " Peewee " from Knox- ville certainly knocks her opponents in the game. She plays forward and is as quick as lightning and very accur- ate at shooting. " Peewee " loves to play the game. She will make a great player someday. ADA BESS HART Ada, our faithful guard, is a good sport on the basketball court and elsewhere. She was manager for the last season and displayed great ability both as manager and player. She always play- ed a hard game and enjoyed the fight to the utmost. It was always her de- sire to bring honor to the Orange and Black. ANNA LOUISE LACY Our own " Sparkplug " was a superb guard. She played basketball as she did everything else — in a happy, care- free way ; but always with determina- tion and grit. She will be a great asset to the team in the years of her stay in Milligan. □ RUTH HURT Ruth always played a hard game. She played as center and showed marked ability in that position. She always tried to back the team to the limit and to bring victory to old Milligan. We predict for her a very bright future on the basketball court. Page One Hundred and Nine Gymnasium □ The senior class of 1923-24 will remember with pride and pleasure to have watched with eager interest the erection of the splendid new gym- nasium which now constitutes an important part of the equipment of our Alma Mater. In point of the enlargement of the physical plant, as well as the enrichment of the entire college life, the erection of this building consti- tutes the outstanding event of the year in the growth of our beloved Milligan College. We feel that this issue of the " Buffalo " is hardly complete without a description of this newest part of our college program. The entire outlay is strictly modern and is planned with a view to utility. The building comprises a basket- ball court of maximum dimensions, adequately lighted, and splendidly equipped. This court is surrounded on three sides by a spectators ' gallery with a maximum seating capacity of 900 people. Seated at any point in this gallery one has an un- obstructed view of the playing floor. The fourth side of the large court is utilized for the installa- tion of various sorts of gymnastic equipment, including chest-developers, rope-ladders, parallel- bars, and other fixtures too numerous to men- tion. One of the most beautiful, as well as interest- ing features of the gymnasium, is the natatorium. Not alone the swimming pool, but the entire room is -surfaced with beautiful mosaic tile with artistic figures shown in the combings and border designs. The natatorium proper is of standard dimensions and is provided with alley lines and all necessary markings for water feats. This pool is kept filled with beautiful blue spring water, kept fresh and pure by frequent changes and kept at the proper temperature by a separate v;iter heater. The natatorium is used on alter- nate days by the men and the women of the college. The building further comprises a pair of new Brunswick Bowling Alleys installed with all the latest advantages. On the same floor are large and airy locker-rooms for both men and women. To this may be added other conveniences such as the lecture-room, rest-room, storage-room. drving-rooms, etc. In addition to the above, the large building comprises suites of living quar- ters, conveniently arranged, and- provided with all modern comforts together with a dormitory department. The living quarters are intended for the accommodation of members of the faculty, including the Physical Director, and the dormitory department is intended to care for the over-flow from the boys ' dormitory. Page One Hundred and Ten AAA ff gssaa r ,A u w- 1 1 v BASE BALL Page One Hundred and Eleven ALFRED KEEFAUVER Alf is on our pitching staff, and to watch him in action one can hardly realize how Milligan is able to hold such a twirler. He leaves us this year, and Milligran will miss him. WILLARD MILLSAPS " Sap " is the best shortstop Mil- ligan has ever possessed. He has the art of picking the ball off the ground and throwing it to first all in the same move- ment. For those who love the game, it is really a treat to watch him in action. WILLIAM FERGUSON Bill also strengthens our twirl- ing staff. He has always car- ried a horse shoe in his back pocket — or somewhere; for a defeat with Bill in the box is rare. He gets many a hit, also, and can supply in the outfield. Page One Hundred and Twel ' 241 ROBERT ANDERSON Without Bob it would be al- most impossible for Milligan to carry on baseball. He has, in the past and is, at present, giving his old fighting spirit to the squad. He efficiently holds down sack number two. BRODIE THOMPSON The least but the loudest play- er on the team is " Shorty. " He has the honor of being the first man to cross home plate for a score this season. Watch Brodie make a name for him- self. SILAS ANDERSON Si captures the ball even if he is compelled to drop to the ground to accomplish the task. His brilliant record as an ath- lete does not fall down when it comes to baseball. ' age One Hundred and Thirteen CARLOS SPRINGFIELD " Spring- Soddy " is in love with the national game. He plays the game with all the pepper that is in him. Most of the time he catches ; sometimes he plays in the field; but regard- less of his position he is always on his toes. WILLIAM ZEIGLER Look on the football field ; there yon see " Zig. " Look on the basketball court; lo ! there is " ' Zig " again. Now turn your eyes to the baseball diamond and there is " Zig " doing his bit to raise the stand of Milligan ' s athletics. CHESTER BLEYINS " Chesterfield " holds down a dual position on our baseball team. He has proven himself a good player as well as an efficient manager. He is very active in all he undertakes, but his best is shown in baseball. Page One Hundred and Fourteen JOHN A. BROYLES When the ball is knocked any- where in John ' s reach, then kiss the ball goodbye, for John only drops one ball a season. He is also rather handy with the bat. He smacks the apple on the nose for several sacks each ?ame. DALE ALEXANDER " Daddy " came to us from Tus- culum, where he was rated as a star in baseball. He carries the same title here, for he is truly a star. His long legs and arms make him capable of holding down the initial sack as none other could do. BARTLETT McCORMICK " Big Mac " leaves us this year, to our sorrow. He has shown good stuff on the baseball field, for he catches and throws the ball with the greatest ease. He wields a wicked bat. What more could we expect one baseball man to do? Page One Hundred and Fifteen Baseball □ Milligan ' s baseball season opened with cold rainy days. Our team suffered a loss of several old men. These are the chief reasons for the great handicap that gripped Milligan during the first period of the short college season. There remained only " Wild Bill " Ferguson, of the magnificent pitching staff that hurled Milli- gan to the championship of the eAppalachian Conference last year. Shepherd, Proffit, and Beasley were lost. Coach Wicker found himself face to face with the difficult proposition of de- veloping pitchers to fill these men ' s shoes. This |was a job that only a genius could accomplish in the short period of a college season. Turning from this handicap, Milligan found that Alfred Love, her crack third baseman, and McReynolds, second baseman, had failed to return. These two men left a wide gap in the infield. Coach found only inexperienced men to plug these holes. Hartsell, the best outfielder in college, also failed to return. So practice started with bad weather and inexperienced players in many positions. During this bad weather our first three games fell due, and as a consequence, were lost by small margins. But, like a baby learns to crawl and then walk, Milligan ' s team forged to the front. The sunn)- days gave Coach Wicker a chance to work his men. The wide gaps in the infield began to narrow down, and before the next game fell due the team was running like a well-oiled machine. Since whipping the men into shape, Mr. Wicker has been able to capture eight straight games and there is a bright prospect for the remaining games of the season. Consid- ering all things, Milligan has made a splendid baseball record this year. Page One Hundred and Sixteen Representatives of Milligan in Milligan-Maryville Debate J. G. Long, Neg. W. W.
