He is optimistic, stu- dious, energetic, ambitious, and cooperative in his contacts with people of various types. His fluent speech and business-like methods will no doubt soon win for him a lovable companion and a happy and prosperous career. " Doc " is a good collector of facts and money for the Annual and other activities. He is very fond of the girls and an enthusiastic supporter of the Conference. Those who have failed to share his smiles have been cheated out of much pleasure at Milligan. GRADY ADKISSON, A.B. Harriman, Tenn.

Grady is one of those students with whom people like to come in contact on almost any occasion. Always smiling and constantly on the job are two characteristics of Woody Werk- ing ' s protege. There are few, very few, ac- tivities on the campus in which Grady has not had some prominent part. An athlete, a plugging student, and one who does not miss a conference, when things are running smoothly. Milligan College is glad to lie the Alma Mater of Grady.

Miss Margaret Smith has been selected I)y her fellow students as the most beautiful girl in Milligan, " Eyes of bine, heart so true, etc. " Then, when we consider her mental equipment and strength of character, we can safely pro- phesy for her a successful and brilliant future.

Quite a versatile personage, this " Tete. " Just as much at home on the vaudeville stage, just as handy with the artist ' s brush as he is in baseball and football. And when he starts something you just bet that he sticks to It to the bitter end. And talking of sports, he ' s one of the best Milligan ever had. If he Hkes you, he ' d go through fire for you, but if he doesn ' t, " Beware. " His heart is so big that so far no one girl has been atile to fill it, but here ' s hoping for the best. ■ Queen " ' ' Tete " :HJjl DICIE JANE KILDAY, A.B. Afton, Tenn.

Girls ' S. S. Class 4; Assistant Librarian 3; Girls ' Circle 4; Graduate of Expression Department. Dicie Jane is a true specimen of success in the Senior Class. Her pleasing personality and literary attainments have given her a place in the minds and hearts of every student and faculty member at Milligan College. To the faculty she is known as Miss Kilday but the boys just call her " baby. " Because of her lofty ideals and her neatness soaring to the solar system, she cannot fail. ANDERSON PAYNE, B.S. MiLLiG. N College, Tenn. American Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4; Student Council 4, Pres. 4; President Senior Class 4. A native of Carter County, Anderson is truly a son of Milligan. For five years he has been one of the College family. We are going to miss him. Faithful, dependable, loyal and true, None more missed. Andy, than you. To his classes faithful. On the campus dependable, At conference remarkal)le. Always lovable. Dice " " Garbo " J 2; 1. HENRY LEE SENTELLE, A.B. Afton, Tenn.

" M " Club 4; Pre- Med Club 2; Latin Club 3; Foreign Language Club 3. Henry won a close second place in the race , for popularity among the Senior boys of his class. His sterling character and splendid dis- position have justly merited the loyal friend- ship of many for him at Milligan College. He is a Christian gentleman of unusual ([ualities. The teachers and students of the College pre- dict for this nohle fellow a happy and success- ful future. He will always he remembered kindly by those who know him. All of the girls admire Henry, but he seems a " Little " partial toward one particular " Little " lady. It is believed and often hinted that he will have " Little " to share with him his future troubles. It will be a " Little " task to keep Henry cheerful and happy. WILMA MOORE, A.B.

She is ambitious and high spirited, making a record in every ac- tivity entered. You read about all kinds of mod- els; well, Willie is a sport model. The man that gets Willie will be lucky because, although she is hard-hearted in appearance, there is a warm spot in this heart for someone we are sure. lis THF UTTIB TH NG5 THAT TfU i " Honk " " Wilme " jdUFFALO LAWRENCE J.

When a man hattles four years on the scrub footliall team, you may look for something in him that few of the fellows jjossess; grit, guts and everything that makes up a man. Lawrence is a quiet fellow but for some reason or other he seems to be a regular attendant at the Con- ference hall this year. The girls seem to give him a stimulus to talk. We are looking for a great future for Lawrence, better known as " Dapper. " HAZEL HALE, A.B. Erwin, Tenn. Philomathean Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4, Sec. 2. Vice-Pres. 3. Sec. 3, Pres. 4 ; Dramatic Club 3. 4; Girls ' " M " Club 4; Manager Girls ' Basketball 4. Miss Hale possesses that with which very few are blessed; a charming personality, yet a quiet and reserved temperament. Hazel is not all smiles but she is doul)ly blessed with her personality and intellectual mind. Dis- tinctions have been made in the class room as well as in all activities in which she participates. Hazel throws her whole soul into every ac- tivity which happens to engage her attention; which fact explains her success and popularity. " Zeke 94 hi KERMIT E. JONES, A.B. PiNEY Flats, Tenn.

" Deacon " Jones is one of the rarest com- binations which Milligan College has imposed upon the world. The extraordinary qualities of preacher, comedian, philosopher, sleuth, truckdriver. cheer leader, culinary artist, head- waiter, member of classification committee and general factotum. The college has grown up around Kermit and they too have evolved to- gether. It is certain that " Deacon ' s " place can never be filled and his dear old Alma Mater will sustain an irreparable loss. But after all is said and done no kinder heart, nor more accomodating soul, no greater patience ■with the waywardness of the faculty and no more original student of Philosophy has quit the walls of Mflligan in recent years. Whether in the pulpit, behind the footlights or in the great marts of the trade, " Deacon ' s " hosts of friends and comrades expect him to succeed and not only to succeed but to leave a laugh, inspire a chuckle and spread a flash of sunshine where ever he goes.

Mi.ss Maltier Chauncey came upon the scene too late to be included in Tennyson ' s " Dream of Fair Women " : but in fact, she has charms which some of his immortals did not possess. The m emory of her will be cherished by teach- ers and classmates, and our interest will follow her as she goes in search of new worlds to conquer.

Miss Lucile Raum holds the distinction of being one of the most popular girls in school. Her very nature is magnetic and education has not spoiled her. In addition to her literary attainments, she possesses a fine voice and the understanding is she will be the Junior member of a contemplated " Evangelistic team. " DEWEY HENLEY ORR, B.S. Roan Mountain, Tenn, Varsity Football 4: " M " Club 4; Athenian Literary Society 2, 3, 4. Dewey Henley Orr, a native of our own Carter County and one of the cleanest and most studious young men to be found on the college campus, deserves great credit for acquiring a college education under handicap. Dewey never speaks above a whisper, walks with a gentle pussy-foot tread, and has never been known to miss a meal or a class-— or a conference, if he happens to be matriculated in that course. The same sterling qualities of good character, hard work, and conscientious discharge of duty which Dewey has cultivated during college life will doubtless count for him in a large way as he passes out into the world of affairs. Here is hoping for Dewey real and deserved success. TH4T5 r«f QtlLY " Si " " Orr " WILLIAM PRESTON WALKER. Nashville, Tenn. A.B. Ministerial Association 1, 2, 3. 4 ; Latin Out 1, 2. 3; Foreign Language C!i:b. Mr. Walker has the distinction of having been in the Christian Ministry fourteen years. While at Milligan, Mr. Walker preached two years for the Christian church at Kingsport; and two years at the Second Christian Church in John- son City. There were one hundred and eight additions at Kingsiiort and one hundred fifty- three at Tohnson City, a total of two hundred and sixty-one for his four years of College work. Mr. Walker has given much of his time to ministerial associations, clubs and fra- ternal orders in both cities. ESTHER SUTHERLAND, A.B. Eminence, Ky. dssolian Literarv Society, Pres. 3, 4, Sec. 2 ; Latin Club 2, 3, 4; Foreign Language Club 2. 3, 4; Girls ' Circle 2, 3, 4. " Act well your part, there all the honor lies " , says Pope. " Were I a nightingale, I would act the part of a nightingale ; were I a swan, the part of a swan. " (Epictetus). A transparent character whose earnestness is marked; whose patience is manifest and whose eagerness for knowledge increases with her days; whose real womanliness is her greatest charm.

Ray is a fine fellow, always looks nice and you can always recognize him because he re- minds one of the birds; always singing. Wc are looking forward to his detnit in Grand Opera. He should prove to be a second Caruso. After all, one must know Ray to understand him and after you have secured this under- standing, you can add another real fellow to your list. Ray is also a ladies ' man. LOIS HALE, A.B. Erwim, Tenn. Philomathean Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4; Dra- matic Club 1, 2; Masque 3, 4; Latin Club 1; Girls ' Circle 4; Debating 4. Lois doesn ' t say so much but when she does everyone within hearing stops to listen. One knows that she is saying something worthwhile or else is telling somebody what she thinks of them. We know that Lois is frank and we ap- preciate it. She has had much experience as a registrar because of her natural ability to score up on the " other fellow " and to keep very delicate ' ' subjects " confidential. Taking T ois as a whole, she is a good sport having a high scholastic standing and loved by faculty as well as students. ■ ' Good Looking " " Model " HENRY CLIFTON HUMPHRIES, B.S. Bluff City, Tenn. " M " Ouli; America.]! T.iterary Society 3, 4; Football 3. 4: Baseball 3. Cliff Humphries came to Milligan with a gieat reputation as an athlete but he did not stop with conquests on the athletic field but succeeded in making a conquest of the class- room. Cliff intends to teach and coach the younger generation in the gentle arts of edu- ation and touchdowns. This flaxen haired youngster will he sorely missed on the athletic fields of Milligan next ye ar because of his deeds of fame which will follow him for years to come. A great little fellow loved by his classmates and carrying with him the well wishes cf his friends as he enters the great wide world. RHEA CRUMLEY, A.B. Johnson City, Tenn.

Optimistic, jovial and endowed with a pleas- ing personality, we find Tom making friends with everyone with whom he comes in contact. He excells in the class room and on the tennis court. Last year that word " court " had more than one meaning for Tom. We shall miss him but we rejoice in his success at MilHgan and our best wishes attend him as lie leaves the college to begin his life ' s work. ORA LIGHT, A.B. Van Hill, Tenn.

Miss Ora Light, is different from the ordinary run of college girls: she never talks, is void of curiosity, is said to be independent, has been accused of being ambitious. It Is yet a question with the inner circle of her friends as to whether her recognized intellectual acumen will find its best expression in fields of statesmanship and politics, or perchance leading youthful lads and lassies in physical culture, or yet perchance, strolling down shady " Lanes " of domestic tranquillity. But when all is said and done, Ora ' s great big heart has won for her a circle of friends as large as her acquaintances. Stu- dious, philosophical, critical, analytic, and at times, charming in effeminate sarcasm. One thing is certain. Miss Light ' s native ability, tact and perseverance cannot fail to win her a place of distinction and service in the world ' s affairs. rrAbO " db ERNEST KEGLEV. A.B.

The exact date of his advent at Milligaii is lost in the mists of tradition, but certain it is that so far back as runs the memory of the oldest inhabitant, he has been considered a fixture. He says this is his last year, but he has the habit of coming back, and this is thought to be a mere pleasantry on his part. Mentally, he is a rounded, finished and complete young person, but physically, he has done little more thus far than to assemble the running-gear of a man. WILLLAM BLEVINS, A.B. Cr. ' XNdull, Tenn. Vmerican Literary Society L 2, 3. 4; Student Council 2. A man of patient toil who has learned thai what pulls the strings of life is the force hid- den within; who is satisfied with success in eveii the smallest matter, and knows that such a result is no trifle: who knows that in such patience there lies the power to persuade, there is the life of reality, and there, if one must speak out, the real man.

Miss Sue Pitman conies from We-bad-kee, Alabama. The place seems to have the cor- rect name, as Miss Pitman brought with her the correct key. not only to unlock all the archives of the Liberal Arts College but the Business Department and the heart of each one with whom she came in contact. Miss Pit- man has proven such a aluai)Ie asset that she has l)een retained as Secretary to the Presi- dent. Patient, Loznng, Thorough and Kind, We hope always to have more of like mind. DALE A.

Dale comes from down in " God ' s Country " , as will be attested by any resident of Greene County, Tennessee. No one has yet discovered just why orators should spring from Greene County, but this young man so sprang, and he sprang far and still soars high. A serious student, a logical and forceful speaker, and a well-rounded man is Dale Mysinger. " Susan " " Orator " WILLIAM FRANK FAIR, A.B. Johnson Cm ' , Tenn. American Literary S ' ocietv 1, 2. 3, 4; Baseball 1, 2; " M " Club 4. William Frank Fair is a member of our Senior Class like the " Ancient Mariner. " For many years. Frank has been a student of Mil- ligan College. Due to impediments of health and circumstances, his graduation has been delayed. The present Senior Class feels for- tunate in having Frank as one of its members. Frank Fair is known as an earnest, studious, and ambitious young man. His determination to finish his college course under existing circumstances is little short of the heroic.

L II m lit II m Masque In the interest of higher dramatics and the development of Dramatic Club talent, Masque was organized and accepted in the College as a Senior order of the Dramatic Club. (1) It ' s high standard of member- ship has set it aside as an exclusive organization. (2) The entrance re- quirements are as follows : one year of resident membership in the Dramatic Club — the work shop of the Masque; one leading role in a Masque open program or three minor roles in a Masque open program. Under the direction of it ' s sponsor, Miss Dimple Hart, the Masque has presented many delightful entertainments. The outstanding season program has been a repertoire of the one act plays: " Wonder Hat " ; " No ' Count Boy " ; and " Thank You, Doctor. " Variety was added to the program by the talent of Boswell and Jones, the College Comedians. The club is fortunate in having for its President the best citizen of the Senior class; Mr. Grady Adkisson. Miss Ellen Montgomery is the Secretary. Page 60 Dramatic Club The Dramatic Club is the Junior organization and workshop of the Masque by which it is governed and with which it regularly meets. To become a member of the Dramatic Club, the candidate is required to try out before the Masque members. The purpose of the club is to create an interest in dramatics and to prepare members for service in the Masque. From time to time the Masque members supervise plays which are presented by the members of the Dramatic Club. Among the plays that have been presented this year: " Dod-gast Ye Both " .

Smalhvood and continuing the pace under Henr ' Sentelle and Dale lysinger, the American Literary Society has enjoyed the best year of its history. At the beginning the pep and enthusiasm of the football season was injected into the Society. Many new men were added to the role, many of whom were strongly interested in literary work. A glance over the Freshmen forensic roster will show the presence of many Americans. The pro- grams have been above the average in every respect. This is the Ameri- can-Philomathean ear for the spring play and great things are expected. This has been a banner ear for the Society, her members have engaged in every branch of College life doing themselves and the Society honor on every occasion. We are proud of our Americans. t. j. boswell Henry Sentelle Dale Mysin ' ger Bill Blevins Cliff Humphries Ernest Keclev Ed Hudgens CARLOS Springfield Wade Dennis Bert Waddell Edward Harry Arthur Sammons Herschel Springfield Thelma Travis Claude Love Archie Grant Fred Kegley Douglas Von Cannon Clifford Albert Jordan Crouch Clark Grant Ted Taylor Ardis Millians Billy Joe Crouch MEMBERS James Cristo George Byrd Chester Brown Arthur Hubert Gladstone S.mith Caldwell Daniels Lee Richie Ellis Veatch Sam Fincher Everett Ramsay Howard McCorkle Elmer Cox Herman Milhorn Henry Johnson W.

If this ideal or purpose is forgotten or placed in the back- ground, the organization has no reason for existence. This ideal should never be an end-point — that is, a Society should never reach its ideal. The Athenian Literary Society is no exception to this rule. It exists for the sole purpose of developing its members. During the few years that the Society has been a part of Milligan College, many men have gone from it to oc cupy prominent places in the various walks of life. We, the present members of this Society, are endeavoring to hold this ideal upper- most in our lives as we work with the Society that the development of men mav continue.

BUFFALO ' 28 A ' . ■ ' 1 P ' ,.- " ! The Ministerial Association The Ministerial Association, as the name suggests, has as its personnel those who have definitely decided to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. If we were to choose a motto, it would be " Service in the name of Christ. " We have chosen this work, not from a mercenary standpoint, but that we might be of service to the world. We do not believe the ministry to be the only field in which service can be rendered, but we do believe it to be the greatest field of service. During the year, the Ministerial Association has held its regular meeting each week in co-operation with the Volunteer Band. The Prayer Room is the hallowed meeting place of these two groups. The meetings have been practical and inspiring, presenting the needs of human life and coping with its problems. The members of the Ministerial Association are holding pastorates at nearby churches and in this way receive valuable experience which will fit them for the greater work to come. Besides the experience, the members have the great privilege of present- ing the message of Christ to the mountain communities. BUFFALO ' 28 Volunteer Band The college year 1927- ' 28 has been one of the best the student Volunteer Band has evei experienced. The Prayer Room on the third floor of the administration building has been used for the sole purpose of worship and religious devotion. In this room have been held the high- water meetings in the spiritual life of those espec ially interested in the work of the Master. Although there is only one signed volunteer for the foreign field in the group, there are a num- ber who are vitally interested in home missions especially. Lucile Lumsden, the president, re- presented the Volunteer group at the International Quadrennial Student Volunteer Convention at Detroit, from Dec. 30 to Jan. 3. There were five thousand who attended this convention, a cross-section of the student life of all the nations of the world. The missionary project was discussed from the viewpoint of the American and of the nationals of the other nations. American Christians have missed something vital which many of the nationals have found, :ind to them Christ is an ever-present dynamic living personality instead of merely a good, dead man. The theme ever before the minds of the student volunteers at Milligan College is service, both to Christ and to humanity. " The call of the Christ rings out today, who will make reply- For labor or service or battle fray Or calling the ones who have gone astray. Oh, Master I ' m ready to go or stay, here am I. Here am I for service what soe ' er it be, I am waiting orders, Master, now from Thee. I have heard Thy summons from dark Calvary, And I gladly answer, ' Master, here am P.

Ike-President Elmer Cox ---------- Secretary The motive of this ortjanization is to give training to those who expect to enter the legal profession. As this is the first year with an organization of this kind at Milligan, one might expect reverses. However, under the circumstances, rapid strides have been made. Debates, mock court and other encounters characteristic of the court room have occupied the programs. It is hoped that this organization will continue with greater success in the future and that much benefit may be derived. This organization promises to be one of the greatest organizations on the hill and the enthusiasm with which every member has entered into the program promises success and victorv in the vears to come. . P.- GE 84 Forensic Council During the season of 1926- ' 27 the forensic team met with unusual success. The whole program was filled with success from beginning to end. A forensic encounter was staged with Georgetown. Center and Kentucky Wesleyan. Mr. W. G. Smallwood and Mr. Billy Joe Crouch won these three by unanimous decision. The next victory which the team experienced was the King-Carson-Newman-Milligan tri- angle. Mr. Dale A. Mysinger and Mr. Lester Reynolds represent ed the Milligan team on the home floor and won by a two to one decision. Mr. Frank Rustemeyer and Mr. David Kidwell represented the college away and obtained a two to one victory. Unusual success was the result of the Tusculum Freshman debate. Mr. Raymond Barry, Mr. Herbert Livesay and Mr. Glenn Orcutt represented the team at Tusculum and won unanimously. Mr. Ira Montgomery, Mr. Ray Crittendon and Mr. Robert Hughes ably represented the Milligan team at home, also were crowned with an unanimous victory. Mr. Paul Howie and Mr. Albert Stanley represent- ed Milligan on the home floor against Tennessee Wesleyan and victory crowned their eflforts by a two to one decision. The present organization for the coming year promises even greater success than ever before. Mr. Dale A. Mysinger as President of the Forensic Council has perfected a wonderful organization. Mr. Ernest Kegley and Mr. Billy Joe Crouch as Vice-President and Secretary respectively have cooperated with the President in an unusual manner. Mr. Mvsinger is coaching the Freshman team of 1927- ' 2S. The 1928 schedule is as follows: Milligan-K-ing-Carson-Newman triangle; Johnson Bible vs. Milligan Freshmen; King vs. Milligan; Tennessee Wesleyan vs. Milligan. Page 85 fe BUFFALO 28 ' 4! !

Page 86 P Book Five BUFF p O O j5 ' «??, e r fi mUM FOOTBALL SQUAD Review of the Season The Buffaloes eiijoved their most successful season of foothall in 1927. King College was defeated 38 to 6 for the first time in the history of football relations and Carson-Newman was defeated 27 to also for the first time. Captain Dennis and Coach Edwards were the board of strategy that guided the Buffaloes to their first championship season. . c ,.,..« , • i The Mars Hill game was plaved under wraps and the Buffaloes won by the margin of 12 to clue mainly to the superior team work of the ' Buffaloes and the broken field running of Madden and Hubert. The King game found the Buffaloes in perfect shape running with the oiled mechanism of a well-balanced football team. The Buffaloes were right. They bowed their necks and swept to the first victory over the Tornado. Madden ' s first punt went over the goal line of the King gridiron thus breaking ' the opponents morale. Captain Dennis would plunge, Madden and McGee would run and touchdowns would result. Blondy Adkisson and Pooley Hubert were injected and they literally ran the King team to death. Sara Fincher and Millians plaved havoc with the King offenders and Springfield and Sammon played perfect games at end with Waddell and Bowman doing the same at guard. An outstanding performance worthy of mention was the broken field running of Cliff Humphries. That blond haired youngster was a literal demon. He gained something over two hundred yards. The Carson-Newman game was a repetition of the King game with the exception of Big Chief Surface. He was the star of that game. After plunging to the first touchdown, he intercepted a Parson pass and ran fifty yards to a score. Chief passed to Pat, then Richie passed to Chief, then to Pat and Cliff. The ' Parson secondary did not know who to cover. The Lenoir Rhyne game was another thriller. Owl, Lenoir half, ran niniety-six yards to tie score after CTiff Humphries had run them ragged off tackle and Wade Dennis had plunged them to death. But the Biif- faloes would not be beaten and they scored another touchdown to win 12 to 6 when Pat McGee grabbed one of Richie ' s heaves to score from the twenty-five yard line. The Thanksgiving game was the most thrilling game ever seen on Anglin Field. Milligan won by the score of 12 to 9. The Pioneers were leading at half 7 to but the Buffaloes came back strong in the second half scoring early with knifelike thrusts by Humphries and McGee coupled with line plunges by Dennis. The goal was missed making the score 7 to 6. The Pioneers were still ahead but the Buffaloes were not to be denied. Tex Madden was injected in place of Bud Richie who had played a whale of a game but fresh men were needed. Madden dropped back on his twenty-five yard line as if to punt but he didn ' t punt but tossed a pass about thirty yards into the waiting arms of Pat McGee, the man of Destiny and aided by interference from Cliff Humphries he swept about fifty yards to the last Buffalo score. Pat had to outleg the Pioneer safety man. The Pioneers once more gave the Buffaloes a thrill when they advanced to the four yard line w-ith four downs to make a necessary touchdown but the mighty Buffalo line held. The Pioneers were presented with two points in order to give the Buffaloes a more secure place from which to punt. The game ended with the Buffaloes on their way to another touchdown. A clean bunch of tough football players were the 1927 edition of the Buffaloes. They won six out of eight college games. They were defeated in the Smoky Mountain Cnference Championship tie with Maryville and Emory and Henry for the Championship. Tnsculum College, Carson-Newman College, Mars Hill College, Catawba College and Lenoir Rhyne were defeated by the mighty Buffaloes of 1927. PAGEr.87 3 BUFFALO 28 r COACH JAMES TOBIE EDWARDS Coach Edwards, a Christian gentleman with a magnetic jjersonality. has proven himself an efficient coach in football as well as other sports, having developed a chamjiionship team. A coach that can get the Iioys to put forth the goods. Coach is like a sailor that has a girl in every port except he has friends and who knows, maybe a girl. We hope that we will be aljle to keep him as men of his type and character are hard to find. WADE DENNIS Captain Wade Dennis led the Buffaloes to the most successful season in the history of football at i lil- ligan; a natural born leader and a fighter from the first whistle. Wade could be seen behind the line backing up in faultless fashion. There might be better backers of the line somewhere but the Buffaloes could never be convinced that any existed that beat Wade. His line plunging in the King, Carson-N ' ewman and Tusculum games featured. Against the strong all army team at Columbia, Ga.. Wade plunged the line for many gains. His team was the first to defeat the Tiiighty King and Carson-Newman Colleges. Dennis de- serves great credit for these smashing victories. It was his leadership and great playing that made them possible. CLAUDE LOVE Claude, better known as the Lindy of Milligan, developed into one of the of the best managers of the year. Claude left us to enter the Government Flying Service and carried with him the well wishes of the 1927 foot- ball squad to whom he had been so faithful and helpful. Better still, Claude could manage his assistant managers so well that everything came through at the needed time. If he learns to manipulate airplanes as efficiently as the 1927 squad was managed, the real Lindy would do well to guard his laurels. BUD RITCHIE Bud. upon whose brawny shoulders rested the task of calling the signals. Bud is another Georgia cracker who came to Milligan and lived up to a great High School reputation. How well Bud called signals is attested to by the record of the Buffaloes; namely, the l)est season of all times. His pass to Pat won the Lenoir game and another pass via the same route put the game on ice. His long pass to Humphries in the Parson game resulted in the third touchdown. A great little quarter who could run interference pass and punt. He is alternate captain for the 1928 team with Springy and should be the means of making another great edition of the Buffaloes. Page 88 BLONDY ADKISSON Blondy. one of the gamest little men thai ever stepped on the gridiron. Coach Tobie Edwards thought more of Blondy Adkisson than he dared ever admit in public. Tobie knows what Blondy did to help win the Thanksgiving game that will not and cannot ever be written. But it can truthfully be said that Blondy gave his ALL in the last tilt that he ever had a ::hance to enter under the colors of the Buffalo. He was one of the fastest men on the grid- iron. The stands have echoed with the call for four years, " Give us Blondy. " His ripping, reeling, snorting end runs will be missed as Blondy has finished. A great little man. playing a great game; now going to the great world. CLIFTON HUMPHRIES Cliff Humphries, or Shiftin ' Cliff as he was affectionately called by his teammates, played the best football of his career in 1927. Clill could certainly " tote " that rock and he played like a wild man against King and Tusculum. In the King game, he gained over two hundred yards to score three times. He caught a pass frcm Bud Richie to make the third Milligan score in the Carson-Newman game. This was Cliff ' s last season and he made it his greatest. STONEV SMALLWOOD Stoney Smallwood achieved two ambitions when he played two great games and helpetl defeat King College and Carson-Newman. One of the smallest men on the team. Stoney makes up for that in fight, determination and smooth play. His defensive work in the Catawba game was his best. Stoney has been the regular center for the last four years and his accurate passing will be missed. He possesses a great knowledge of the game and this has aided him in many tight situations that required headwork coupled with hard play. He passes into the realm of life with the well wishes of the mighty Buffalo tribe. BERT WADDELL Bert is probably the most consistent player that ever tossed a footI)all for the Orange and Black. He is seldom hurt and always in there with his best. Bert had his greatest year in 1927. A demon on defense and a hard man to stop on offence. One of the greatest guards in the conference and a great man on knifing through the offence to nail the backs for many tosses. He played a great game against the mighty Parson and " Tornado " and was in- strumental in turning the tide of victories. He has finished his career as a Buffalo and goes into the world with the wishes of his team- mates for a great career. J ' , ' rV ' -,. Pagb.89- BUFFALO ' 28 F CHESTER BROWN Chester Brown, a Freshman from Rock wood. Tenn., succeeded in establishing himself in East Tennessee collegiate circles in his first season. Standing six feet and with a reach like a polar hear, he was a terror to the op- posing linemen. Brownie was a first string lineman before the season got very far. Foot- ball is a rough game and Brownie established himself as a real footballer in the hearts of all. His feature plays were those of Lenoir Rhyne and Tusculum. TEX MADDEN Tex iladden. Little Blond giant from Texas. If " Tex " did nothing but throw that pass to Pat in the Thanksgiving game, he would for- ever live in the hearts of Bufi alo fandom; but his laurels do not stop there as he is an all- round man. His first punt against King Col- lege that rolled over the goal line broke the King morale and paved the way to the first Buffalo victory. His broken field running featured the season ' s play. T. T. TRAVIS Firecracker, the jiride of Fayetteville, Ga., came into his own this season as a football play- er. Already heralded as a big leaguer in base- ball. Firecracker added foott)all to his fast growing list of laurels. He played end and lie did so as only a perfect end could. Fast, shifty and with a good reach he played his greatest ball against Carson-Newman and Len- oir Rhyne. Firecracker has another year and should develop into a great end ' ere the season has departed. ARDIS MILLIANS Shorty Millians. the big tackle whom every- one wishes to know, when he appears. This big boy when aroused is the best tackle in the world. His play at Welch. W. Va.. was a sight to behold. He would fight the in- terference off with his paw-like hands, then knife his way through to get the runner for a loss many times before he would even be started. Shorty had the misfortune to break his leg in the Lenoir game after giving an- other great exhibition of tackle play. Greater things are predicted for him in 192S. I ii Page 90 BUFF: DEWEY ORR Dewey is another Buffalo that found his place m the herd this season. Always ag- gressive and alert, he proved a very valuable asset to the 1927 edition. His play in the closing games of the season forever endeared him to the Buffalo fans ; a hard worker who could always be counted upon to be giving his best. Dewey graduates and carries into his work the well wishes of his teammates and followers. SAM FINCHER Sam is a product of Boys ' High in Atlanta and the brother of All-American Bill of Georgia Tech. fame who made the fans forget that he was merely the brother of the famed footljaller. He earned a name in his right due to the great play during the 1927 season. In the King game he was a punt coverer and his ef- ficiency along this line is attested by the fact that the coaches selected him for All-Conference honors. A quiet lad but dynamic when turned loose on the gridiron. The future should hold great honors for Sam and he should add to the name that Bill Fincher made famous when he was picked by Walter Camp in 1920. ARTHUR SAMMONS Art, the Georgia Cracker, proved to be one of the most valuable men on the Buffalo squad. He played lioth end and tackle with equal ability. Big Sam was a demon on de- fense and with his enormous reach, he tackled many runners after they had seemingly passed him. His aliility to r ' ay lioth tackle and end saved the Buffaloes on two occasions when men were injured. Big Sam stepped into the breach and proceeded to show the boys how to play ' em right. A most likeable fellow and very popular with his teammates. WILLIAM BOWMAN Bill came to us from Erwin, Tenn., the home of many good athletes and Bill is one of the best guards they ever turned out. A very ag- gressive lineman and greater on the defense. Big Bill should develop into one of the coun- try ' s greatest linemen. He has the speed, build and reach. His play against the Parsons stamped him as a lineman of first rank. In the Tusculum game. Bill broke through and nabbed the runners for many losses. His plaj- was very consistent for the season. " Page 9 _ BUFFALi!! B ri o WILLARD DORSEY Willard came to Milligan from Chattanooga, the home of many football stars. Willard made up for his lack of size with determination and fight. A quarterback who could bark out the signals with snap and precision, one who had the confidence of his teammates and who could always be counted on to keep his head and poise in a pinch. " CHIEF " SURFACE Big Chief Whoop ' Em Up Surface played one game of football against Carson-Xewman that will forever stamp him in the hearts of Buf- falo followers as a hero. Big Chief plunged to the first score through the famed Parson line and early in the third period intercepted a Parson pass and ran fifty yards to the second score. He snagged, ran and threw passes and delivered his masterpiece football effort. Sur- face was almost directly responsible for the first Buffalo football victory over Carson- Newman eleven in the history of footliall re- lations. PAT McGEE Pat, one of the sweetest backs to ever trod the turf for the Buffaloes was a sidestepping, reversing, pass catching football player. He saved the day in the Thanksgiving game when he caught Madden ' s pass and ran fifty yards to a score putting the Buffaloes on top by a small margin. He did the same thing in the All Army game but did not reach tip top shai e until later because of injury. The King game found him going off tackle with great regularity. A great fellow and well liked. Pat should have a great future ahead of him. HERSCHEL SPRINGFIELD Captain-elect Springfield came to Milligan without any football knowledge two years ago and succeeded in making himself into one of the most consistent Buff ' aloes ever to trod Anglin Field. Springy is one of the most icious tacklers on the squad. His master- piece was the King game when he played the entire game without sulistitution. And how he covered punts. A heady man who knows when to ground a punt and when to let her roll. Great things are predicted for the 192S Buf- faloes under his leadership. A gentleman and scholar, hailing from the town of athletes, Sod- dv, Tenn. Page 92 t!i HENRY SENTELLE Henry is another graduating Buffalo. Henry played tackle and his value to the squad has been very great. Xever injured and always raring to go. His play against Concord was a masterpiece and Henry was always giving his all for the Buffalo cause. Good natured and always in good hnmor. Henry carries with him the respect of his teammates. POOLEY HUBERT Little Pooley made a name for himself in the King College game when he began ripping, tearing, raring off tackle smashes: a master of the cutback. " Tis doubtful if Pooley could run in a straight line if he wanted to a tribute to his broken field running. He establish- ed himself in the Mars Hill game but he made a name for himself in the King game when he ripped the King line to pieces. His drop kick made the fourteenth point in the Carson-Xew- man game, thus ] utting that game on ice. GEORGE BYRD George, in his second year of College foot- ball showed that his first good year was not a " flash in the pan. " A big rangy ' " Byrd " witii the aggressive football spirit, George plucked many an enemy pass from the air from his de- fensive center position. One of the most ac- curate passing centers to ever grace the Buf- falo togs. George is counted on to hold down the center position of the Buffaloes for the 1928 edition. EDWARD HARRY Cadillac Harry, pride of Pompano, Fla., brought his two hundred and fifty pounds to MilHgan and proceeded to make the Buffalo the real guard. Cadillac, as he is affectionately called by his teammates was simply too big and strong for the boys. His great defensive play helped to make him a terror to the opposing teams. Cadillac is a typical good-natured man. Always in a good humor and really never overly serious. Cadillac should make a great player before he leaves the Buffalo herd. ,K; PAr.F. 03 BUFFALO ' 28 Review of Basketball Season (BOYS) i| |1 The stampeding Buffaloes of Milligan College have just closed one of the most successful seasons in ' jyj the history of the school. The hardwood artists certainly did their stuff this past season. The beauty of J the situation was that there ' was no individual star, all five men worked as a unit in a well oiled machine. They would take the ball, work it down the floor with ease and determination that showed the opponents that Milligan had an offense that would worry any team. As a matter of record the Buffaloes won eleven out of fourteen games. The following is a list of teams defeated by Milligan: Rutherford, Charlotte " Y " , Johnson Bible (2), King College (2), Emory and Henry, Carson-Newman. Tusculum (2). Milligan los ' t games to the following: Emory and Henry, Carson-Newman and Tennessee Wesleyan. The former and latter games were lost in- a three and two point margin. This is a remarkable record for a college team playing in the circle that Milligan does. They met every team in the Smoky Mountain Conference in two games save Maryville, and lost only two Conference games. The champion- ship of the Smoky Mountain Conference has not yet been decided but Milligan has a fair liid for it, tying with Emory and Henry. Each team lost two games. Coach Eyler is to be highly commended for his ability to put out winning teams. He had to completely re-arrange his men three times during the past season. Once when Springfield left, again when McGee was ruled ineligible and later when Surface was ruled ineligible. These three men were all good but they were just cogs in an almost perfectly timed machine. When they dropped out, new cogs were polished and fitted in- to their places from the reserve material. These men chiefly, Herschel S ' pringfield. McCormick and Steve Lacy came through in great style. Although they had never played much up until these men left, they stepped ' nto their shoes and played with the ease of veterans. Coach Eyler ' s system and handling of the boys has ' f met with approval throughout this section. He is known for his sportsmanship and straight forward methods. The season just passed does honor to good sportsmanship and clean living which is truly represented in " the ten men representing Milligan in basketball. Power to them! The beauty of it is that none of them vWraduates and all will be back raring to go next year. ■y y j w COACH EYLER Serving his second year as coach of the Buffalo hardwood artists. Coach Eyler has made an enviable record. His method of cool pre- cise machine jtlay was too much for the teams of the S ' moky Mountain Conference. His faultless handling of his team so that there is not any individual star as the high schools and some colleges are prone to have. All in all there is not a better liked, cleaner, higher minded coach in these parts. CAPT. CLARK GRANT Jake Guard Jake played his third year as a varsity man and being captain developed him into one of the leading guards of the Conference. His defensive and offensive work was above re- proach. Jake is a clean, hard-fighting type of athlete. Power to him I ARCHIE GRANT Smiling Archie Forivard Smiling Archie comes to Milligan the second time to earn his letter. A more earnest train- er and a cleaner, more enthusiastic athlete is not to be found. Archie with his unexcelled for- ward play and his all-round pleasing personality have won honor in the hearts of the Milliganites. WADE DENNIS Battle Ax Manager Wade is not only an athlete but a good man- ager. He was always on the spot ready to assist the team at any time. Great credit is due this man, for his financial management helped to put the Buffaloes on foreign floors. Page 95 BUFFALe ' n « i ' JAMES CHRISTO Jimmy Forivard Jimmy is rated as one of the liest forwards in this section when he is right. This year saw him right in many games and he surely did show his wares. Jimmy also is a Sophomore and looks forward to two more years service on the Buffalo squad. STEVE LACY Steve Center Even though he was not on the squad dur- ing the first part of the season. Steve kept plugging and at last came to his own. His center play in the Tusculuni game was the best that has ever Ijeen seen on that floor. He has everything that a basketball player needs save experience. LEE RITCHIE Bud Guard Although unable to make the squad last year. Bud was undaunted and when practice started this year he was right on the dot and as a result he is found among those present. He is a good clean athlete and much is expected of him next year. HERSCHEL SPRINGFIELD Goat Guard This is Goat ' s first appearance as a varsity player. He served two years as a sub and de- veloped into one of the best back guards that East Tennessee can boast of and she can boast of many. Herschel has another year. He can be depended on to come through under any circumstances. t , ' ' ' f ,,P,AGF. 96 ARTHUR HUBERT POOLEY Fo reward Consistency in attending practice periods won for this curly headed lad a place on the varsity squad; he was just as consistent in his play- ing. Pooley turned in some nice games and should develop greatly next year. FRANK Mccormick Mac Center Mac comes to us as a Freshman and after many setbacks he came through in great style during the latter part of the season. Frank is poison under the basket and should develop in- to one of the leading centers of this section. JOE KEEFAUVER Keef For ' U ' ard This blond headed lad from the stix came through with some classy exhibitions of bas- ketball. With the much needed experience that the years will bring it is expected that he will develop into one of the best. CHAMBERLAIN HALE Jim Guard Another likely Freshman takes his place among those who have won the coveted " M " . Although Jim did not get in so many games, he was out there hustling every day and came through when he was called upon. m Page 97 f ' iW; BUFFALO ' 28 Review of Basketball Season (GIRLS) When the fast Buffalettes began their stampeding this season, it was seen that there would be no difficult) ' in surpassing the records of past years. Among the most outstanding of their stampedes were the ones against Tusculum College, Stonewall Jackson and Hiwassee. The fast floor work and good shooting of Little, Moore and Crow were the best that have ever been seen on the local court. The defensive work of Bell, Brassfield, Pace and Light speaks for itself in the low score of the opponents. Out of the seven college games played, five were victorious hich indicates that the Buffalettes have enjoyed one of the most successful seasons in the history of girls ' basketball, having lost two games to Carson-Newman, the strongest girls ' team in this section of the state. ' MkU Page 98 dUFFALO ' 28 COACH ADA BESS HART To Coach Hart is due primarily the credit of producing a team which brought about the most successful season in the history of the College. Her splendid training, hard work and spirit of good will brought from the girls something superior to natural ability. The sincerity and earnestness with which " Ader " ' coaches be- speaks for her a wonderful career and for Milligan ' s great progress in athletics. CAPTAIN THELMA BELL Guard Bell is a good fighter and full of pep. She is a real athlete in every sense of the word. Bell was our faithful stand by as guard anti her ability to check and intercept plays and pass made her worthy of being captain of the team. She will Ije one of the sextette to re- present Milligan next year. MANAGER HAZEL HALE The brilliant success of the BufFalettes this year was due to the efficient managemnt of Hazel. Her experience combined with her willingness to help was a factor that led to her success. She is loved by everyone and was a valuable asset to the team. ORA LIGHT It was " Sister Light ' s " guarding under the basket that kept the opponents score down. She was one of the mainstays of our girls ' team this year. More than once this standing guard covered two of the opponents as they came under the basket. Ora has played with us four years and it is with sadness we realize her place will be vacant next year. Pacf 99 n BUFFALO ' 28 V m: m 111 ' in Hi BETTY CROW Crow is fast, aggressive and a passer of natural ability. She has a good eye for the basket and is all there when it comes to pivot- ing and dodging. She helped to pile up the score in every game. We are expecting great things of her next year as the Captain of the Buffalettes. WILMA MOORE Now you ' re talking baskett all. When it comes to getting the tips, Moore is right there. She can cover the floor like a coat of varnish. Her pass work and good shooting were above the average. Taking in all of her qualities, Moore is one of the best centers in our con- ference. She had the spirit, pep and co-oper- ation necessary to make her a desired team- mate. Moore graduates in June and thus passes one of our best athletes from off the old hill. HAZEL NICHOLS Hazel played forward and although it is her first year on the floor of Milligan, she did ex- ceptionally well. Although small and tight she is one of our fastest forwards. She is expected to be one of the Stampeders in the Buffalo herd next year. IRENE PACE Irene played guard. She came to us from North Carolina and brought with her a fighting spirit and plenty of natural ability. She is one of the most outstanding guards that has ever played with the Buffalettes. The opposing teams were quick to notice her crafty guarding. her brilliant floor work and her ability to pivot, pass, guard and intercept and knew that they were up against a real fighter. Pace has three more years ahead of her. She should become one of Milligan ' s greatest athletes. Page 100 T BETTY STONE Stone is a guard worthy of mention. She Is small and quick of action, is cool headed and a quick thinker. She is the type who not only thinks but one who carries her thoughts out in action. Due to an injury received at the first of the season, she was unable to play in all of the games but next year we are expect- ing " Red " " to strut her stuff. " EFFIE KATE KIRBO Effie Kate came through the season in great style. She was ready at all times to fill the shoes of Moore. Her playing was steady, de- pendable and accurate. She is expected to step into a regular berth with the Buff alettes next year. VIRGINIA REYNOLDS Virginia is a good teammate and is distin- guished for her ability to work the ball down the floor. Her most striking characteristic is that she would rather pass to someone else than be " high point " man herself. S " he is a hard fighter with the interest of her Alma Mater at heart and promises to be an outstanding athlete some dav. ANNE LITTLE We regret that this is " Big Little ' s " last year with us. She was high ])oint man this year. With her pass work and her brilliant playing under the basket, she became one of the main cogs in the Milligan machine. Anne has four letters to her credit. if ' P.V.E 101 BUFFALO ' 28 iiJi Baseball COACH TOBIE EDWARDS Coach, a wizard at the old apple game, has produced a championship team every year he has been at Milligan; and his name will go down in Milligan ' s Hall of Fame. Edwards seems to he at home when it comes to baseball. He knows the game from A to Z and plays the old apple game during the summer as a hol)by. He is wanted at other schools but Milligan cares for liim too mucli to let him go TETE BOSWELL Captain Tete Boswell of the 1927 Champion- ship Nine contributed greatly to the success of the team. He played outfield where pre- viously he had played infield; but the shift did not mar his record and usefulness. His hitting and fielding stamped him as material for the professional side of the game. A real leader and a real sportsman having the con- fidence of his teammates. He leaves the field and the hill with the well wishes of his fellow students. BUD RICHIE Bud stepped into the second base jol) after Humphries injured himself and made the Buf- faloes think he had played there all his life. His work as pivot man on douI)le plays stamp- ed him as a real performer around the ol ' key- stone bag. His work in the Mars Hill series saved the Buffaloes from low scoring. CECIL SMITH Little Smitty had the misfortune to break a leg sliding early in the season but at that time he was scheduled to hold down the hot corner due to his speed and natural ability. Smitty ' s fielding in the early games stamped him as a keen performer. TOM BOND Tom, the elongated outfielder could hit " em a mile with his Babe Ruthiau swings. Tom was one of the most popular men to ever grace the historical hill of the Buffalo. Fast and possessed of a good throwing arm. He hit probably the longest ball ever hit on AngUn Field in recent years when his drive- cleared Buffalo creek when the field was turned to- ward the highway. Tom is married now and may his matrimonial career be as successful as that of baseball. BILL FERGUSON Wild Bill, the pride of Elizabethton, had more stuff for his size than little Dicky Kerr of White So.x fame. Bill ' s iiitching record at Milligan dates back for several years I)e- cause of illness and loss of time. His curve ball simply disappeared and his fast ball was hard to handle. Without doubt. Bill was one of the best pitchers turned out in recent years at the Buffalo institution. Our well wishes go with him to the professional world at Asheville where he will try his curves with the Sally Leaguers. LOUIS SHUBERT Manager Louis Shubert made such a name for himself at MilHgan that even the great composer by that name will I)e proud to claim the name of Shuliert. Frankie, as he was af- fectionately called Iiy the fellows, was ever on the jol) and he held the lost l)all column down to a great minimum. Frankie should do well as he is a good manager and they say good managers get along well in life. " MAC " MACCOLLUM Jonesboro .MacCollum with his underhanded benders proved a life saver to the Buffaloes on numerous occasions when he went to the res- cue of his teammates liesides pitching his reg- ular turn. Mac ' s work against Tennessee was outstanding after two other teammates had been sent to the showers. Mac did not have a loss charged to him for the season. He should be heard from in pro circles. BUFFALO 28 RONDAH HYDER Roiidah graduated from the hill to go further 111 quest of knowledge at Vanderbilt. Rondah was a good man to have around because of his utility as a ball pla er. He could pitch when needed and play the outfield when that position was in demand. His control over the old apple was good. He was known as a pitcher who had plenty of control. Rondah carries the well wishes of his teammates to Vandy where he is seeking his Master ' s degree. BILL FLEMING Lefty Fleming whose left handed benders proved to be too much for the opposing hitters of East Tennessee. Besides being a good left handed pitcher. Lefty could also hit that ol ' rock. He hit three triiiles that should have been home runs against Marshal. Lefty did not have a loss charged up to him in this season ' s record. He will no doubt he heard from in pro circles before he hangs up the ol ' spikes. W. G. SMALLWOOD William Gladstone was without a doubt a great prospect as pitcher. Although not pos- sessing much in the way of " natural stuff " , to use the words of the Colonel. " He had the old grey matter. " Stoney couldn ' t Ijreak a window pane with his s;,teed but he sure could use the old noodle. THOMAS TRAVIS Firecracker, the pride of Fayetteville, Ga.. came to Milligan determined to become a ball player and if records are taken, mute evidence will show that Firecracker has succeeded in his ambition. A big, easy going fellow, never losing his temper when errors were made be- hind him. He always had the club hustling fjehind him to victory. Firecracker has high ambitions and should go far. CHARLES FERGESON Charley, one of the greatest players to play for the Buffaloes, entered the pro world at Chattanooga and should go far because he can certainly hit that old apple. He is one of the best hitters to play for the Buffaloes and his hitting should find him a place in the pro world at once. His pinch hitting won many games for Milligan and he was one of the most feared batsmen in the Smoky Mountain Conference. CLARK GRANT Jake is a real catcher and they say he has the makings of big league material. Jake hit something over four hundred and had such an arm that it sounds fabulous. Jake is undoubted- ly one of the greatest ball players ever turn- ed out at Milligan or Soddy where ball play- ers are really raised. His hitting caused Tobie to put him in the clean up position and he truly cleaned ' em up. Make it a point to remember this prediction that Jake will go far in pro circles. BILLY JOE CROUCH Billy ' s hitting in the Tennessee game will forever keep him in the Buffalo Hall of Fame when he clouted the old pill for a Four for Four. Bill played first base and learned in his first season to shift his puppies with great dex- terity. Bill is a fine sport and a general good fellow. He should be a valuable man to the Buffaloes in the years to come. WADE DENNIS Wade played great at all times. He poled one over the fence against King College with two on one day and since that day has been a regular outfielder for the Buffaloes. His hit- ting has placed him in the Milligan Hall of Fame. He hit something over three fifty in his second season as a regular. An outfielder of no mean ability. His hitting was responsible for many Milligan victories. BUFFALO ini HARVEY BULLINGTON Harvey, a three letterman with truly three varsity letters. Harvey plays first base and plays well. His fielding around the ol ' first hassock was a thing thrilling to watch. Little Harvey did not have a great average but he hit o er the three hundred mark and more important than that, he was dangerous in a pinch. He has one more year and should be ripe to enter the pro ranks if he wants to. ARCHIE GRANT Little Archie stepped into the third base job and handled his part of the infield like a veteran. In his first season as a College reg- ular, he proved himself to be a veteran in the pinch. His hitting was good but his main bid to glory came in his ability to handle liunts and hot grounders. Great things are predicted for this lad before he finishes his career as a Buffalo. LEO BROWN Leo was another Texan who came to Mil- ligan and upheld the reputation of his Alma Mater as other Texas boys had done. Jug head played shortstop and he really played. His fielding flashed many a douI)le play into the summary to add to the Buffalo score. His defensive play against Tennessee paved the way to a Buffalo victory. CLIFTON HUMPHRIES Cliff could hit that ol ' rock in the pinches with the most deadly precision witnessed in recent years. Cliff couldn ' t get out in the pinches. Possessed of a natural eye and fleet of foot this sorrel topped youngster added base- ball to his list of conquests. Cliff is another great prospect for the pro world should he decide to enter.
