TrNN 7f:co V5 911Ze h Us " In years to come, when you turn the pages of this book, we hope that you will remember that through inexperienced amateurs, we have done our best to present the real Mil- ligan College. Looking forward to the rise of a greater Milligan, looking backward to note how far down the road of progress we have come, pausing for a while to view the campus and its many activities, in that list our aims in compiling the 1929 Buffalo. h . __— niminiHlum Poiiii li lilt (hii Miii Slum ' ' s.h :•■ ' ■ KM: ' WMmX 0M:Ai 0 More like the beiiuty of a dream, truly Milligan the beautiful . rro.v.v i( sli iiiril liilh iiiir f iilli li-itls lo ihr lii ys ' IIdiii, . . . i: i,i i hilt ,ij .i:i l I hi iin.i iimx .-i:} Hardin Hall, the home of our Milligan Girls I ' flt:-:-..; ' ; - J.

The best way to judge one ' s popularity is by the number of friends that she has. Nancy numbers her friends with her ac- quaintances. She is quiet and unassum- ing, but there is no movinj her where her ideals and convictions are involved. Truly the gods smiled on her. C. C. ALBERT, B.S. Emory, Vircinw American Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4; " M " Club 4; Football 4. Our " Gallant Man " from Virginia as Dean Boyd calls him. Clifford closes with his Senior year an honorable career of four years at Milligan College. He did not become afflicted with the almost fatal disease which attacks many sopho- mores, nor is he going out into the world like some Seniors to solve all of its vex- ing problems. Albert has many friends in Milligan who wish him a world of success in his chosen career. Wherever Clifford goes, Milligan will always have a true friend. T ' CE 24 ELIZABETH caWDER CRUW, A.B.

Betty is one of our few all-round students. In our college activities she holds an important place; in our social life she is |iopular; in the class-room she is an admiraldc smileiit. WADE B.

President Pre-.Med 4; Baseball 2, 3; Dramatic Club 2, 3. Wade came to Milligan with a repu- tation in -Athletic Circles. Since he has been here he has made a name for him- self in all branches of college activities, truly proving that it can be done. On the gridiron he is a hero, in the classroom a scholar; but above all a gentleman. Our best wishes attend him in whatever profession he chooses to follow. Prtcr 25 h rMi MimM J LESLIE L.

At times in one ' s college career there are diversities which lead that one from the straight and narrow academic path. This has happened to Less. Having a devout belief in the adage that " Clean- liness is next to Godliness, " Less decided to help in the process of keeping the sec- tion in clean shirts. He has succeeded to the extent that he could place the third-finger head-light on the hand of his Juliet. Regardless of the fact that Less has engaged in outside interests he has maintained his prominent position on the campus. As he leaves, the best wishes of all go with him that he may continue to have the rich success he deserves. BESS STRICKLAND, A.B. Clifton, Tennessee President Ossolian Literary Society 2, 3; Ossolian Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4; Fo- rensic Council 2, 3, 4. " O, Young Lochinvar is come out of the West " and has captured this maiden, but unlike the ballad hero he has no steed. Bess has taken a conspicuous part in the activities of the college, and her depar- ture will leave a gap for some ambitious student to fill. When her partner allow- ed himself to slip in class work, Bess felt it her obligation to continue to step on the academic gas so that the fall would not be too great. Milligan rejoices that you have made your commendable rec- ord, and her wishes are that you will continue to make A ' s in your chosen " Profession. " Let your motto be " Re- gardless, Less will always be Less, never inore, never less. Page 26 ELEANOR VAN WINKLE Cleveland, Ohio Philomathean Literary Society +; Trans- ferred from Hiram College.

An aihltte. playing for his .Mma Mater, Billy Joe merit- the love and respect of his team mates, the appreciatiim of all who love the Orange anil Black.

Ellen is a representative co-ed with a sparkling personality and " a heart for any fate. " We are proud of her because of her ability as a violinist. We admire her for her loyalty, unselfishness, and disposition. VICTOR ALLEN, A.B. Springfield, Tennessee Athenian Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4; Fo- rensic Council 2, 3, 4; President Athenian Literary Society 4; Student Council 3, 4. A man among men, a gentleman, and a scholar, are the indelible impressions that Victor has made upon the Milligan Common vealth. He has made a wonder- ful reputation as a college debater win- ning many victories and we confidently expect him to be one of our greatest busi- ness men and statesmen. Victor is young in years but old in experience, to take his advice one would not venture into the pitfalls of life. Victor can be depend- ed upon, and that is what the world wants, so Victor we are backing you. P.1GE 28 ' ■.i ' ' NELLE tiRAV. A.B.

In this age of bobbed hair and business women, it is refreshing to Hnd a girl who devotes her lime to strictly feminine pursuits. We shall remember her because of her high principles and winning per- sonality. As a student she takes pains with her work and is rewarded by the high gralle which come as a result of it.

Robert came to us four years ago from Boone ' s Creek. Like the old pioneer, Daniel Boone, Robert has overcome all diriiculties in a ijuiet, unassutning, force- ful manner. . hard working and bril- liant student. We all are sure that Bob will make a marked success, and to you, Bob, we wish vou luck. Page 29 LUCILE LUMSDEN, A.B.

Nature formed but one such as she — " then broke the die. " She is bright, friendly, witty, intelligent, attractive, and charming — what we are trying to say is that she is an all-round good sport, and we love her. J. DAVID KIDWELL, A.B.

In 1925 out of the mountains of Vir- ginia came " Our Dave. " His four years at Milligan have been clean, manly, and he has always stood for the right things. David has chosen for his life ' s work the calling of Christ, and he is taking the Torch of Christianity with him wherever he goes. Nowhere can a finer Christian character be found and to David goes our best wishes. F.AGE 30 i% K f • ■ w L yL H 1 1 5- 1 . ml i ? - IlERSCHEL J.

Just another great fellow from Soclily, Tennessee ami to know him is to know a true friend. " Springy " is a man you can depend upon at all times, and with such men as this you will always have a great scho(d. He was Captain of the 1928 stampeding Hulfalr)es, one of the best basketball guards ever seen upon a bas- ketball court, in short an all-round good fellow. Springfield whether in athletics, school or wherever he is will be a suc- cess, and llerschel, old boy, we are bet- ting on you. GEORGIA FIELDS, A.B. Greexevili.e, Tennessee Philomathean Literary Society I, 2. 3, +; Dramatic Club 1, 2; Masque 5, 4; Latin Club 1, 2; Foreign Club 3. The girl with golden hair and blue dreamy eyes. She doesn ' t let books in- terfere too seriously with her college ac- tivities. ' ou ' ll find her on the spot when there is a goo l time to be had. However, her excellent ability and originality in class-room, ami her lovable personality have endeared her to the hearts of all. Page 31 i? s m ■.J THELMA INEZ BELL, A.B.

Thelma is the embodiment of all that is generous, noble, and good. She is friendly, nice and in other words the kind that you like and we like. The defi- niteness of her purpose, and the strength of her convictions make her life one of positive influence upon all with whom she comes in contact. T. T. TRAVIS, A.B.

" Firecracker " does not need an in- troduction to anyone on the hill. Truly, we can say he is loved by all who know him. He was elected the most represen- tative boy in the school, and what we can say would only be a peep into his Christian character. Travis is a great football player, and our only rival of Walter Johnson, the great baseball pitcher. This CJeorgia Cracker will make his mark, so old world get ready. Pace 32 POLLV HAWKINS, A.B.

Curve, Tennessee Transferred from U. T. Junior College 1929; American Literary Society 4; Foot- ball 4; " M " Clul) 4: Mini-ierial Associ- ation 4. It is with great regret that we have not had the privilege of having Bull with us for four years. Ours is the loss. Bull, the pride of " Curve " . Icnnessee, came to us last fall, and (|uickly won his way into the hearts of all. It was Edric who plunged through the opposing teams line for first down after lirst down, it was Edric who took the hard knocks for his .Mma Mater, and Edric when you get out upon the hattletield of life, you carry with you the love of the 1929 Senior Class. 977 Pa(.e 35 MARY SUE JAYNES, A.B.

Mary Sue, the Society Editor of the 1929 Buffalo, elected the Prettiest Girl of the Senior Class, is the kind of a girl that you read about. Level-headed, dignified, capable, efficient, trustworthy, that ' s the Mary Sue we admire. Jolly, friendly, a good sport, that ' s the Mary Sue we love. Always in her four years at Milligan she has been dependable, and loved by all. clark: l. grant, b.s.

Jake, the " Old Reliable " , who has given his best 10 his Alma Mater. A three letter man whom very few can equal. A great halfback, the best running guard in the Smoky Mountain Conference as voted by all of the coaches of the conference, the greatest college catcher to don a base- ball uniform. Not only is Jake a great athlete, but he has won the heart of the fair sex in his conference tilts. Jake, old boy, we are watching you, and we know you will reach the top. P.4GE 34 UUUGLAS VUX CANON, B.S. Banner Elk, North Carolina American Literary Society 1, 2. 3, 4; Manager Basketball 4; " M ' ' C ' liili 4; Pre-Law Club 3. Four years ago there " haileil " upon the Campus of Milligan a boy xvearing knee pants. He was called the " Kid " , an, I many of the hoys thought he was a visi- tor, but not so for it turned out to be our own Blackball Von Canon. No one has been more faithful and conscientious than Douglas. He is dependable and willing to do all things when called upon. He is one of the youngest members of our class, and one of the finest. His most excellent disposition, and earnest indus- try have made him loveil by all. Black- ball is a true friend, and a cultured gen- tleman. There is no doubt that he will be a great success in years to come. LENA SUE HARTMAN, A.B. Gates, Tennessee Philomathean Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4; Latin Club 1; Foreign Language Club 2; Kappa Epsilon Club 3, 4. If you want to tell anything, tell Lena. She is a good confidant, and is true as steel. To know Lena is to love her — knowing her, you find her a valuable friend. Pu:e 35 BERT FRANKLIN WADDELL, B.S. Greeneville, Tennessee American Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ; " M " Club 2, 3, 4, 5, President 5; Foot- ball 1, 2, 3, 4, Captain 3. Bert came to Milligan in .... ? No one here is able to give us this infor- mation. However, his place will be hard to fill, when he is gone. For several sea- sons he was one of the greatest football players Milligan has ever had. We are sorry that we haven ' t more friends like Bert. We wish him the greatest success and happiness that life has to offer. EDDIE MAE HARTMAN, B.S. Gates, Tennessee Philomathean Literary Society 4; Assist- ant Registrar; Transferred from Union University. Although Eddie Mae has been with us only a year, her lovable personality, her modest ways, and her sunny disposition have endeared her to each of us. As a friend, she is sympathetic — and some- how it is easy to put all one ' s faith in her. We hope that great success will be hers in life. P. ge 36 EFFIE KATE KIRBU, A.B.

Modest of speech, womanly in manner, and of unblemished character. She al- ways wears a smile ami is ready at any time to lend a helping hand. She is much loved by all the girls. (iRACE PHELPS, A.B. Johnson- Cfn-, Tennessee Philomathean Literary Society 2, 3, 4, President 3; Kappa Epsilon Club 4; Dramatic Club 3, 4; Masque 4; Latin Club 1, 2; Oraduate of Expression 4. CJrace is one of our town girls of whom we are justly proud. She pos- sesses a keen and ready wit, an attractive appearance, magnetic personality, and high ambitions. W ' c expect great things of her unless — some sheik captures her. Pace 37 MAUDE WHITLOCK, B.S. Baileyton, Tennessee Ossolian Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4; Sew- ing Club 3, 4. There is sotnething about the quiet, steady, conscientious individual which commands, and demands the love and respect of his fellow-men — such a girl we affectionately know as Maude. In her school work she has ever been rated as a good student. We predict for her suc- cess in her chosen profession, whatever it may be. HARVEY BULLINGTON, A.B. Erwin, Tennessee American Literary Society 1, 2. 3, 4; " M " Club 1, 2, 3, 4; Basketball 1, 2, 3; Football 1, 2, 3; Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4. " Little Harvey " comes to us from Erwin, the home of so many of our dis- tinguished students and athletes. Harvey, or " Little Napoleon " , as he is known to many of his friends is one of the few men who have made letters in three sports at Milligan. Whether on the foot- ball field, baseball field, or basketball court Harvey excels. Milligan will miss thi s athlete who has contributed so much to her record — we predict great things for Harvey in the athletic world. Page 38 UAISV CUOK., A.B.

Daisy is (|iiiet and modest, but full of fim whether at work or play. She has an attractive personality, and makes friends wherever she goes. She belongs to the " Kappa lipsilon " and from all ap- pearances she will soon he putting her domestic arts to a practical application. We know that she will make an excellent wife for some preacher.

One of the most notetl characteristics of Anne is that she will gi ' e her opinion when one asks her for it, sometimes when not asked for it. When you want an earnest reliable thinker and worker who is dependable, conscientious and sure, we present .Xnne. Quality doesn ' t always come in small packages. Paoe 39 T ....:r _ VIRGINIA M. REYNOLDS, A.B. Erwi.m, Tennessee Ossolian Literary Society 2, 3, 4, Presi- dent 4; Basketball 2; " M " Club 2, 3, 4; Latin Club 2; Modern Language Club 3. Level-headed, dignified, smiling — that ' s the Virginia we see; capable, efficient, trustworthy — that ' s the Virginia we ad- mire; jolly, friendly, a good sport- — that ' s the Virginia we love. These qualities have won for her the respect and esteem of all who have known her — both teachers and students alike. RUTH ELIZABETH REYNOLDS, A.B. Ervvin, Tennessee Philomathean Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4; Latin Club 2, 3; Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4. Ruth is best known, perhaps for her talent in music. She has a good person- ality, and her loving smile and tender kindness have won for her many friends. It has been proven that she is a " one man girl. " Lucky man. Pace 40 .■».- r-i - - r 1 ' -V?

Silently she slips across the campus and tenderly glides into our hearts. The two great characteristics of womanhood, pa- tience and gentleness, are portrayed in her character as she performs her daily tasks. GER. LD1NE P. RKER. AH. Covington, Georgia Volunteer Band 1, 2, 3, 4; Philomalhean Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4. Jerry is one of our Georgia girls. When her friends were so unlucky as to fall ill. they were very lucky to have her prescribe for them. She is a diligent student with a sterling character and high ideals, and a determination to achieve success. She has been ctficient as a religious worker and leader on the cainpus.

The Club was organized with this purpose in view: To further study the different phases of Hoine I ' Iconomics, American Arts, and the application of art in e eryda life. This study was based on tielil trips, re- ports from current magazines, and information furnished by the Director cif tile State Home Kcononucs Club. An girl ha ing taken a course in Home llconomics is an eligible candidate for membership in Kappa Kpsilon and, upon application, the vote of the club de- termines acceptance. And as Keats has divinely stated: .lit is Initli. niid triilli beaiily: beauty is truth; truth, beauty; that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know. Page 61 Commercial Department The Commerci al Department has become the " workshop " of Milligan College. Under the direction of Miss Pearl C. Wlldermiith, (A.B. " cum laude " , University of Buffalo, N. Y.) the department has undergone complete reorganization. With the addition of new equipment — typewriters, a mimeograph, a phonograph, filing cabinet, new desk furniture, effective display charts, and a large, well-lighted room facing the College Campus. The Commercial Department takes on the aspect of a well-polished locomotive which has the possibility of reaching a powerful, smooth pull. The Commercial Department is proud of its " workshop " spirit. The students have learn- ed to turn hard work into romance. The hard work has comprised research from textbooks and from printed material coming into the various college departments, that has been given to the students for criticism and re ' ision. Methods of style and psychological experiments have been studied and put into practice. The students have enjoyed the romance of serving as amanuenses, reporters, stenographers, typists and secretaries whenever the demand has come from the faculty. Following is the roll of the department: Ruth Bell Robert Bowm. n m.arth.x vlrgini. corum n. ncy c.antrell Fr.- nklin Ellington Thelm.a Fogelm.xn Newell Freeman Mable Johnson Lucille Lumsden Charles Starnes Hazel Talent Bess Strickland BiLLiE Couter Dimple Hart Nat Honevcutt Page 62 " The Masque " 1 he Masque, which is one of tile recent orfranizations. is a hijjhcr step in tile ilramatic lield representing the hi;j;hest interests of Dramatic Art.

Since its organization, the Club has been very successful, local physicians having gratefully given their services in rendering inspiring and instructive lectures. And, too, the Club Members have been congenial, and have shown their loyalty by giv- ing their time and efforts in promoting interesting and purposeful programs.

The members of the Volunteer Band are girls who ha e planned some definite reliKious work as their life calling. Each Monday night, during the hour from 6:45 to 7:45, the group meets to- gether, rendering programs consisting of topics vital to the Christian life in general and the Minister and Missionary in particular. To the members of this group these services arc the most spiritual, the most inspirational and uplifting of all the relitrious activities on the Hill. The State Volunteer Convention convened at the Uni ersit of Tennessee in February, and the Volunteer Band of Milligan College was represented by one mem- ber of the Facult ' and five young ladies of the student body. Special features of the activities of this band are outside programs, the first one of the year being rendered in the First Christian Church of Greene ille, Tennessee; another in the College Chapel, and another in Hardin Hall. All the members of the Ministerial Association are employed regularly in near- by churches, and these (jung men practice preaching in the group meetings on Mon- day night. Eight members of this group of young people graduate this ear, and if is one of their greatest pleasures and privileges to leave as a gift to the Prayer Room, a hand- some Bible, expressing only in a feeble wa the love and appreciation of the Sacred hours spent in this Room of Prayer. (Jur words are better expressed in the following lines: " Christ has no hands but our hands To do His work roiia ; He has no feet but nur feet To lead men in 1 lis w a ' . What if our hands are husj ' With other things than His? ' llat it liiir feet arc w.tlking Where sin ' s allurement is? What if our tongues are speaking Of things F4is lips would spurn? How can w f Impe to help Him And hasten His return? " Pace 85 Page 86 Pace 87 " The Dramatic Club " The Dramatic Club began the year with a small number on the roll. Many mem- bers were lost through graduation last year. However the small number seemed only to give greater enthusiasm to the organization which united its forces for a larger and better Dramatic Club. The roll increased by forty-one, making the total number on the roll, fift -one. The Dramatic Club is the workshop of the Senior organization the Masque. By a years membership in the Dramatic Club and playing in one leading role or in three minor roles, a member of the Dramatic Club becomics a member of the Masque. The Club meets each month on the second Tuesday night of the month. The officers for the Dramatic Club are chosen from the Masque which is the ruling or- ganization. 1 he Club has had a very prosperous year in Dramatic work, giving its annual open program before Christmas, and also giving the same program at PIrwin, Ten- nessee during the month of January.

Haiulicappcd by hiclc of material, Edwards put out a team that was in the fislu from tlic first whistli-. ' I1u- team of 1928 was the cleanest, hardest fiKhtinji. hardest training team ever put out by the Buffaloes. The season start- ed ofi with great promise of a winning season. The first four games were easily won, but due to the occurrence of injuries and lack of experience the rest of tlie games were lost, but not without a struggle. The team u as made up of youngsters with a sprinkling of veterans. This lack of experience bobbed up man times during the season. All in all the season was a success. Mars Hill, Atlantic Christian, Carson-Newman and Bennett Colleges were defeated. The Buffaloes were rebuffed hy Cata wba, King, Kmory and Henry, and Tusculum Colleges. P i;e 93 JAMES T. (TOBE) EDWARDS Coach For the fifth year he has guided the Buffaloes and for the fifth time his ef- forts have met with success. He is a well liked fellow and his loss next year will be sorely missed. His success has been due to his understanding of the boys and his untiring efforts in the field. He is a prince of a good fellow and our wish for his success in whatever field he takes up goes with him as he goes from us. CAPTAIN SPRINGFIELD End " Goat " played a brilliant game during the entire season. His aggressiveness counted for many scores. His play was above par all season and he was a great leader for the Buffaloes. His play in the early games was phenomenal. The Buf- faloes lose a great athlete when " Springy " goes from us. DON EMERSON Manager " Skeeter " was an able manager. Ever on the job in administering to the worries and wants of the players. He was economical and thoughtful in his many duties. A friend to all. Don lives in Fruitvale, Tennessee. Page 94 T. T. TRAVIS Guard " Buck " played both guard and end and played them well. One of the most versatile and valuable men on the team. " Buck " played his last year for the Orange and Black and sure did a noble job of it. His covering of punts from the guard position was uncanny. We wish you every success possible " Buck. " " Firecracker " blew in from Fayetteville, Georgia. EDWARD HARRY Gutird " Cadillac " played his third year with the Buffaloes and did good work in the line. He is big and a smart football player. He played a good brand of bail throughout the season. His experience and coolness helped him to be of great aid to the Buffaloes. " Cadillac " has one more year. He hails from Pompanu, Florida. WADE DENNIS Quarterback Some schools may boast of their great football players, but Wade is as good as any of thcin. For four years " Hippo " has been the main cog of Iilligan ' s foot- ball machine. Our opposing teams have learned to respect Dennis. He has never met a line that he could not tear into shreds. Milligan will miss " Hippo " next year, for he is one of her greatest ath- letes. BASIL CASEY Guard Valuable goods come in small packages. A little man but a big fighting spirit. Casey played along beside Hruwn and this pair sure could open up a hole. Casey could come out in the Interference or break through the opponcius line to drag down a runner. In short he is an ideal guanl. His play was hard and consistent and bordercci on the lirilliani. Casey is another I ' rwin man. Pace 95 BILLY JOE CROUCH End " Hammer " had to wait until his Senior year to come out, due to injuries. But he came out in his last year and made things hum around the end positions. He was good on covering punts and receiv- ing passes. Not many yards were reg- istered around his end. Much praise is due a fellow who can come back as " Hammer " did. He will be missed when he goes from us this spring. GEORGE BYRD Center George, our big lanky, dependable center played great ball from start to finish. George was especially good on diagnosing the enemy ' s plays. He was also good on offense. This was George ' s third year on the squad and he certainly did snap out of it. He is a dependable and accurate passer to the backs. He has one more year as a Buffalo. George came from Jonesboro. CHESTER BROWN C. pt. in-Elect Tackle One of the best men in the line to ever play on a Buffalo eleven. He can certainly play tackle to a queen ' s taste. His aggressiveness has won for him the honor of Captain for 1929. HOWARD SAGE Halfback " Curly ' ' made things hum in the back- field. He is a fast, aggressive back and much is expected of him in the coming seasons. He was also used at quarter part of the time. His playing all season was good and many long gains went down to his credit. P.-VGE 96 FRED FERGl ' SON End Ferguson came to us from the L. 1. rats. His ready smile, steady work, along with his extraordinary punting ability, won him a place on the Buffaloes squad. Fred is a good eml, both on defense and offense. His playing in every game was above reproach. He has two more years on the squad and we are expecting great things of him. Fred is a resident of Knoxville. CL. iRK (,RANT Fiillhack " Jake " waited until his Senior year to begin football, but when he did start, he developed into a hard-hitting back and had the side line saying " what if he had been out all four years? " " Jake " played like a veteran all year and has shown us that Soddy is where good ath- letes grow. We are sure he will be a successful Coach wherever he goes. Hll.I. BOWMAN Bill was a tower oi defense and a steam roller on offense. Bill played con- sistently all season. In the latter part of the season he was shifted to (|uartcr- back due to his experience. Bill played brilliantly at each position. He is in- deed a great tackle and has i«o more years on the squad. Bill hails from Erwin, another place like the renowned Soddy. We will be watching you, Bill. FRED SNODGRASS Center Fred put up II scrappy game all sea- son. He was a hard trainer and con- sistent player. He played equally well ■It guard but serverl chiefly as Byrd ' s understudy. Fred just lives for fool- ball and ' ou can look out for him next year and the years to come. His passes are accurate and his defense is splendid. Fred lives in Eli abethlon. P Ar.E 97 EDRIC OWEN Fullback " Bull " came to us this year from a Junior College in West Tennessee and engraved his name into the hearts of Milligan fans. " Bull " started as a full- back, but was later shifted to tackle, where he performed with equal brilliance. He is a hard, consistent player and will be sorely missed next year. ROY ERWIN ilatfhack " Ironhcad " turned in some mighty sweet games during the season of 1928. We are of the opinion that when this boy finds himself he will be hard to cope with. Roy has two more years on the squad. He is fast and aggressive and should have enough experience by now to make a wonderful player next year. His play- ing in the past two years has been good, but just watch him go next year. CLYDE CAMPBELL Halfback " Country " could sure show ' em a leg and take it away. His brilliance held out during the entire season. He was by far the most consistent ground gainer the Buffaloes had this year. His name will live long in the Milligan Hall of Fame. He is a true noble spirited athlete. Power to him. VERNON HINDMAN Halfback " Buck " did not find himself until the middle of the season and when he did — Wow! Such runs we have never seen! His first one was for 65 yards. He was handicapped most of the time with skin eruptions and leg injuries. He has the makings of a good athlete. " Buck " comes to us from Murfreesboro, Tennessee. LEWIS TAYLOR End Great shades! What a punt! and all eyes turned to Taylor. His punting kept the ball out of Buffalo territory many times. " Lew " is indeed a wonderful end, long, rangy, fast and a good pass receiver. Lew has three more years (in the squad and will certainly make things buzz. He is truly a great athlete. Lew is from Johnson City. Page 98 o i fi? f - - Review of Basketball Season The MilliKan foIlcKt- ' Stampeding Buffaloes have finished the best season ever recorded in MilliRan Bas- kethall History. At hunie and abroad they ' wejit their oppoiients off their feet. When the " BiR Five " started down the ole hardwood floor something was hound to happen and it did, in the form of " two more points " for Milligan. At no time during the entiie ea on were the Buffaloes at a loss as tu what to do in case of an emergency. Their mutto was. " In case of douht, SHOOT " , which they did and invariably the score keeper would mark two more i oims for MIMigan. True, they met ilcfeat. four times, hut it was glorious defeat for each man had given his all. What more can l e expected of any team? If a sulistitution was to be made It w as not Iooke l upon as a handicap hut as new strength going in to take the place of a hanlfighting comrade. l- " ach new piece was a perfect fit. because it had l»ecn made to fit the place in which it was placetl. The Buffaloes had no etjual when it came to team spirit and machine-like precision. They were irresistible, none cuuld stop them In iheir wild plunge for victory. According to the official record the Buffaloes won fourteen out of etghtcca games playctl. One loss was :o one of the hesi Professional teams in the South, the " St. Louis Americans " , hy the score of J.V3J. I ler the " Americans " swamped the " Chattanooga Kaillights " by a margin of 2 ywints. The games won are as follows: TuHCiduni (J). Carson-Newman )2). Kmory and Henry (i). King. Maryville. Johnson Bible. Olson ' s " Terrible " Nordics, Lenoir- Khync. Krwin " ■ " 2), Tliere were only three giimcs U»st during the regular season, they are as follows: St. Louis Americans, King, and a yvillc. These games were lost only 1 . ' a few points, the largest negative score being the une with the Antericans. Kt»r the lirsl lime in several years the Buffaloes met every team in the Smoky Mountain ( onfcrence. losinn only two games, the best Conference record In Milligan ' s history. Because of the be t seasonal record tlie ButTali cs were given the Conference Championship. Uist year Milligan and Kmory-Henry tied for the championship, but this seas4 n Milligan won the undisputed right to the championship. The 1929 basketball season saw the first Conference Tournament in the history of laskclluill of Kast Tennessee. The tournament was played at Klngs|K»rt and won by Kmory an l Henry. Since Coach Kyler has lieen at MilliKan he has wished for a C«tnference Tuurn.inient. This ear it came to loss. Although his learn did not win the Tournament, Coach K lcr nni tt l«- given the credit as the instigator of one id the grciite-tt steps in the progress of Smoky Nlountain BasketkLll. Milligan easily won from King, in the first game of the (ournamenl. The second night the BidTaloes lost to Kmory by a small margin. The Smoky Mountain Tournament is to l»e an annual affair. Thanks to Co;ich Kylcr. The i ast season was characterized by clean simrtsmanship, hard wurk. loyally, and clean living. The baskctlktll s inad. consisting of ten men of the hinhcst tyiM . do honor to their Alma Mater by |Ki sc»sing all these M ulities. May they live as they have played! Jake ami HerHchcIl will nut I»e kick another year, but Ihey must remember, their teammates are with them, wherever they may l c. Cio to it boys, we arc for you! Pace 99 mmm college, ienn. 3768? CLEMENT M. EYLER ( udi ll Coach E yler finished his third and most successful seas(jn at Milligan. He was always thinking, planning and work- ing for the good of his team. The de- velopment of team spirit and playing ability was what he wanted, and he got it, because he was liked and respected by each and every man on the team. Coach Eyler was the same in defeat as in victory. His words were, " you look as good to me in defeat as you do in victory. " He always had words of praise and encouragement for the team. CAPTAIN ARCHIE GRANT Forii ' ard To Captain Archie Grant goes much of the praise for the success of the 1929 " Buf- faloes. " Archie is a natural leader of basketball men. He is one of the great- est basketball players that has ever graced the Milligan hardwood. There is some- thing about Captain Grant that always commands the respect of his team-mates. His pleasing personality radiates a team spirit that has carried the Milligan team to many victories. He was appreciated by his team-mates as much as any captain could be, as was shown by his being re- elected to lead the Buffaloes next year. DOUGLAS VON CANON Manager " Blackie " was always on the job. All you had to do was press a button and the manager was ready to serve you. No one could have served the team more loyally and faithfully than Douglas. He de- serves all the credit possible to give an athletic manager. The comfort and the success of his team were always first with him. The team deeply appreciates his service. HERSCHEL SPRINGFIELD Guard " Springy " , the man with many motions, was one of the main cogs in the machine that brought Milligan many victories this year. Herschel has a patent on guard- ing that places hi m in a class all his own, superior to all others. He uses his feet, hands, legs, head, and psychology to check the flying opposition. He has every quality that any player could desire to have. He has quick action, keen judg- ment, fight, and all characteristics that a star basketeer possesses. Everyone re- grets to see Springy go because his place cannot easily be filled. Page 100 JOE KEEFAUVER Forv:iird " Little Jney " played his second year for the Buffaloes. This li ' .tle dynamo of coiiraKe and optimism, from Boones Creek could always he counted on to give his all to his team, coach, and school. " Joey " should make a great little player with another season of practice and experience. Remembering the great game he pla ed against Maryville is all one necils to prove " Whacker.s " worth to the Buffaloes. BILL WOODS ForKiirJ Bill came to us from New Castle. He was unknown and untried, but it was not long before he broke into the " lime- light " and was looked upon by all as a great little forward. Fast, accurate, and hardworking Billy should become a main cog in the Buffalo wheel. ELMER SOLOMON GuiirJ " King " Solomon came to Miliigan from Mosheim, with the " rep " of being an artist. But Coach Eylcr had to be shown, so, naturally Elmer set out in sho»v him, and as is his custom, he did it in big style. With a little more ex- perience as a guard " Sol " shoubl develop into a " sure ' nough " artist, that would make any coach feel proud to have him on his team. LEW T. LOR ( ' fiilrr Just plain t)le Lew, as he is known far and wide, came from Johnson Ciiy High to prove his worth as a Buffalo. " Did he do it? " An ' how! Lew just seemed in fit in as though he had been made fur a Buffalo center. t ' ndcr the goal he was a demon, rolling up the points promis- cuously. With three more years to play. Lew should develop into a " supcr-bas- ketccr " for the stampeding Buffaloes. Page 101 ::% CLARK GRANT Guard Ex-Captain, " Jake " Grant, the " Pride of Soddy " has been a bulwark on the Mil- ligan team for the last three years. However, this year he reached the cul- mination of fame as a basketball player. Jake is one of the most skillful hardwood artists that East Tennessee College cir- cles have ever known, as is shown by his being placed on the All-Smoky Moun- tain Conference Team for two years. Jake ' s motto is, " wherever that ball goes, there I will be also. " As this athlete makes his exit from Milligan, the world receives one of the greatest athletes ever produced by our Alma Mater. CHAMBERLAIN HALE Guard " W. C " , playing his second season, proved to all that loyalty and hard work are the essentials for making a great athlete. " Jim " could always be depended on for his best, which is saying a great deal. Chamberlain will be one of the main cogs next year, probably filling Jake ' s place as guard. PAUL MORLEY Forii-nrd Paul came to Milligan from Erwin, where he played center for the Erwin " Y " team one season. It did not take this lad long to cinch a berth on the " Big Five " , for the coach realized his ability as a basketball player at the very beginning. Neither did he fail to notice and com- mend his fighting spirit. He played many games in the " winning column " for Milligan with his sensational side-shots. STEVE LACY Center " Punkin " Lacy, another Sophomore who made the varsity " M " his first year, returned to his Buffalo comrades, to show them what he could do, and he did it, as only a genius could. The Buffs will be looking to " Punkin " for leadership in next season ' s activities. Page 102 Review of the Season Am Hhjs Hart - Coadi Bern ' Crow -------- Captain Til ELM.

The trip through North C aioliiKi proved rather disastrous for the Bulfalcttcs, yet the score does not always tell a true story in Baskethall.

She showed herself as a Coach of marked ability when she took material that look- ed new, green, and undeveloped and moulded them into one of the most suc- cessful girls ' teams Milligan has ever produced. She possessed a magnetic per- sonality and was held in esteem by all who knew her. She knew and taught many of the tine points of the game which are sometimes over-lookeri by less ex- perienced coaches. She possessed a never- dying spirit which she instilled into every member of her squad. CAPTAIN CROW Foiicard You should see our Be ' ty play ball. Now you ' re talking real basketball. " She ' s like a bird on the wing " when she goes down the floor. This is Bef.y ' s last year and we ' re wondering who is going to fill the worthy shoes of Captain Crow. If you have seen Betty play ball then 3 ' ou realize the true spirit of Milligan. PACE Guard There ' s an old saying that dynamite comes in small packages. Consider Pace and agree. With the greatest of swift- ness she intercepts passes, and co ' ers an unbelievable amount of space with her one dribble and has the ball read} ' for the forwards use. She is always cool and calm and can be depended up- on to do her part and more. SPIVEY Foiivnrd Spivcy is our happy, snappy, scrappy forward. She never acknowledges de- feat, no matter if the score be against her. She is quick and always on the job. She has an unfailing eye for the basket and many times has saved Mil- ligan from defeat by her long shots from the corner. P. CE 104 HVDER Guard Ruth is some scrapper and possesses that determination that is necessary to win hall games. More than once it has been her fighting spirit that turned the tide of battle our way. She is some guard and can always be depended on to in- tercept passes and get the ball to the forwards. STONE Guard Rubye always played a hard game. She played guard and showed marked ability in that position. She always tried tn back the team to the limit and to bring home the bacon. We predict a bright future for her on the basketball court. HlMI ' IIRIIiS Guard " Florida " , our faithful guaril, always played a hard game and enjoyed the fighi to the utmost. .Any of her opposing for- vards will tell vou that it wa - aluioNt impossible tn get bct veen her and the goal. When they diil shoot, it was Florida that jumped and took the ball from out of the air. Pace 105 BELL, THELMA Guard Thelma, our faithful guard, was man- ager this season and displayed great ability, both as a manager and as a player. It was always her desire to bring honor to the Orange and Black. BELL Center Carrie came to us this fall and showed us her ability as an accurate shooter. She took the game seriously and is develop- ing into one of Milligan ' s best. GILLEY Center Gilley, our good old stand-by and de- terminedly consistent center. Gilley al- ways played a great game and we ' re glad to know that this valuable player will return to us next fall. Page 106 Pea ThcAot f IF J W 5 A f U OPEK ALL niGm S " -- ii - i ADAM B.

They measured dirt! The makers of the Hoover have long known that it could outstrip other cleaning methods by a very wide margin. But they wanted to give electric cleaner purchasers really accurate evidence of this cleaning superi- ority. So they put all the best known cleaners at work cleaning rugs. Rugs dirtied in use in homes, ho- tels and clubs were used so that they would represent actual home conditions. At the end of five minutes, ten minutes, fifteen min- utes, they measured the amount of dirt removed b each cleaner. And in every instance the Hoover had taken out more — far more.
