Pace 18 P BUFFALO % dL J: A Personal Message from Our President TIN ITILLIGAN COLLEGE is an undenominational Christian institution, organ- I V I ized for the purpose of enriching the world ' s life by sending out students who have not only careful scholastic training and learning, but also sincere forceful Christian purposes. " Having accepted the slogan of President Hopwood, ' Christian Education, the hope of the world ' , and believing that the small college is a vital agency in building up the highest type of manhood and womanhood, Milligan College seeks to equip men and women for maximum good. Milligan College has cause for pride and gratitude in the splendid family she has given to service in all honorable fields. " To think of our alumni and old students is to thank God that they not only have brought honor, high ideals, and a consciousness of civic righteousness, but also that they have entered into high positions of leadership and power in community, state, and national life. We think, too, of the lengthening line of students who, in the providence of God, will pass through our portals in the years to com e. We shall steadfastly hold to the ideal that Christian culture is of greater value than intellectual attainment. We shall, when the drift seems away from it, call our students always to the sincere, sacred things — belief in the Bible, faith in the deity of Jesus, and realization of the necessity of righteous living. " The College has an ideal location; its property and equipment are worth over $600,000 with no current indebtedness. The buildings are surrounded by a campus made beautiful by fountains, drives, walks, grass, shrubbery and flowers. " Milligan College is generously supported by men and women of strong Christian character who are interested in the Appalachian section of America, which section has an exceptionally strong appeal to those who have faith in the early Anglo-Saxon stock of our country. Mrs. MacLean, one of the trustees, truly says, ' In my opinion, the preser- vation of our American ideals and the safety of this nation, as conceived by our fathers, will be safeguarded by the Anglo-Saxon people of the Southern Appalachian section. We can do no greater work than to make it possible for them to secure a Christian education that they may be fitted to serve our America as they alone may be fitted to do. ' " Here into our college halls, upon our attractive campus, and into our family life, a welcome awaits the student of vision — the seeker of the higher things of life.

Bob is the school " pest. " He has this reputation so established that whenever a girl gets a gentle punch in the ribs or hears a big noise in her ear, and Bob is nearby, she instantly blames it on him. He has another reputation here also, and it is even greater than the first. It is that he is always a gentleman. Everyone likes Bob because he is ready to help anybody who needs help at any time. DWIGHT B. BILLINGS A.B. Norton, Virginia American Literary Society 1, 2, 3, Critic 2; Dean ' s List of Distinguished Students, University of Virginia 3. Dwight is our scholastic star. All his classmates know that when he is in their class they have to work hard to make an " A. " He always makes around 98 on all exams, and that makes their efforts look small. Dwight decided to leave us at the end of his sophomore year, but he became so homesick that he came back the second semester. A hard and persistent worker, a loyal Milligan supporter, a true student! We are expecting great things of him in the future. Page 24 U BQJIF-IF-ALO % WILLIAM BOWMAN B.S.

" Bill ' is a mighty easy name to say according to Kathleen Adams. The name suits him, not because he is short in height like his name, but because " Bill " sounds just like a real boy with no sissiness within fifty miles. He is always glad to do anything he can to help anyone. For instance, he was Dr. Dejonge ' s right hand man. " Bill " , we wish you success. CHESTER BROWN B.S.

Mighty of arm and body has he been for four years at Milligan College; a bulwark of strength in the Buffalo line, and a capable leader in things footbatlish. Chet ' s smiling countenance and amiable disposition have won friends for him wherever he has gone. At times he may seem a little rough, but he always has a heart for the fellow who is not so fortunate. Good luck to you, Chet; your name is brightly written in the records of Milligan College.

Clyde has only been with us two years, but he has tried his hand at almost everything around the college from painting buffaloes to being president of the Christian Endeavor. When you come to think about it, he has succeeded in all the things he has tried. He is one of the leading scholars of the class, but aside from that, he can be just about as funny as anyone we know of outside a circus. We hope that he will be like Oliver Wende ll Holmes and never dare to be as funny as he can. JORDAN J. CROUCH A.B.

" Genial Jordan " he might be called. The sky seems always blue for Jordan, but certainly no one in his company could long be blue. And yet, this young man can be serious too, as his scholastic record shows. Nowhere in the student body can be found one who is more loyal to old Milligan. Page 26 ■ft BUFFALO % IRENE ELDER A.B.

Kindness, cheerfulness, patience, perseverance, intelligence, as exhibited in her face, cannot fail to impress you, if you have the eye of an artist, She is a lady of fine scholarship, and thoroughly equipped in every essential element of character for a useful career. CARRIE DISHNER A.B. Bristol, Virginia Philomathean Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4; Home Economics Club 1, 2. 3, 4. Carrie is the seamstress of the class. She really can sew well. That is one of her attributes, but it is not the only one. She has a heart of gold and will ' do anything she can to help anyone in need. We hope that Carrie will always be as sweet and lovable as she has been here at Milligan. spreading her sunshine and optimism to everyone with whom she comes in contact.

" Skeeter " is one of those fellows that people can ' t help liking. He is rather quiet, except once in a while when he starts over to breakfast. We understand that sometimes he feels an urge to let Speedy know he is on his way so he won ' t be locked out. " Skeec " is the type that believes in his friends and sticks to them in time of need. He is preparing to be a doctor, and we hope that he will make a good one. THELMA FOGLEMAN A.B. Johnson City, Tennessee Philomathean Literary Society 1, 2, 4, President 4; Band Director 4; Orchestra 4; Volunteer Band U 2, 4. Music! Thclma loves music and certainly knows how to make it too. She has been a very capable band leader this year besides furnishing us with some very pleasant cornet solos. We under- stand, though, that " carpentering " is one of her main hobbies. We are glad that she decided to return to Milligan this year, and as she leaves these halls, we hope she will use her talents to fill the hearts of others with cheer.

The true spirit and ideals of Milligan are secure in the heart and life of Newell. The richness of her character is to be revealed in its entirety only after close acquaintance with her, but true wealth is there for those who arc fortunate enough to be admitted into the vaults. Newell, in a quiet and unassuming manner, has accomplished much while a student at Milligan. Her work has been consistent and conscientious. As an embodiment of the finest womanly qualities, nobility, truth, modesty, she has won the esteem of all. RICHARD H. GEAR A.B.

" Dick " has done a great work through his preaching since he has been at Milligan. During the summer he does evangelistic work in Georgia. It seems that he likes that section of the country very much since he writes so many letters destined to end there. A little bird told us that her name was Thelma. May you be as successful in everything else as you have been so far in your preaching. EQJtPIPALO % V. CHAMBERLAIN HALE B.S. in Commerce Erwin, Tennessee Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4; " M " Club 1, 2, J, 4, Secretary 3; American Literary Society 1, 2, 3. We would speak of Chamberlain as " a Hale fellow, well met " if it were not for our conviction that all punsters should be shot on sight. As a member of the basketball team, Chamberlain has learned the value of team-work; in fact he never plays a lone hand. The future should find the name Hale written large in the business world. ANNA RUTH HONEYCUTT A.B. Duncannon, Virginia Ossolian Literary Society I, 2, 3, 4, President 4; Volunteer Band 1, 2. Anna Ruth is generally known as " Honey. " Pet name though it is, this expresses the esteem in which she is held by teachers and fellow-students. She is a lady of versatile talents and we predict for her a life of useful service to humanity. May she carry the true Milligan Spirit wherever she goes.

Soon after Roy entered Milligan, those qualities became apparent that have caused him to be known as a fine athlete, a good friend, and a real gentleman. Roy ' s four years of interference on the gridiron, while his team-mates were reaping acclaim and glory, show a commendable unselfish- ness. It was highly fitting that he should have been selected by the 1930 Buffaloes as their captain. He has been quite active in his class-room work, and from the social duties of the conference period he seems to have poise and " Grace. " EUGENE JONES B.S. Johnson City, Tennessee Power House Club 1, 2, 3, 4. If we should wish to compare Eugene ' s ability with that of his class-mates, we would have to consider not only his excellent record here, but also the splendid work he is doing in radio. He is one of the best liked men in school, in spite of the fact that he doesn ' t stay in the dormitory nor play on the athletic teams. He does not spend much thought nor time on the fair sex. However, we think this means little as to his future conduct, because we know that men of his type purr the loudest when the right hand strokes their backs. Page 31 P IB QJ IF- PALO % HENRY M.

You will be struck, of course, by Henry ' s resemblance to Calvin Coolidge. One might almost call the resemblance a " speaking likeness " , but for the fact that Calvin never did speak much. There is really no kinship involved, except the natural kinship which one great mind has for another. Henry would be an honor scholar anywhere. JOE KEEFAUVER A.B. Jonesboro, Tennessee Dramatic Club 1, 2, 3, 4; Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4; " M " Club 1, 2, 3, 4, Secretary 4; Manager Foot- ball 4; American Literary Society 1, 2, 3. Joe is always immaculate in his dress, precise in his language, but a bit changing in his paramours. Yes, one could count a goodly number of the fair sex with whom " Joey " has held conference during his four years. Perhaps he was wise, as he graduates, perhaps not " cum laude " , but at least, " heart free. " Joe has a host of admirers and well-wishers, for all know him to be a gentleman. He is, by count, the All-American Substitute Extraordinary. Luck to you Joe! Page 32 p ECUIPIPALO ' 53 CHASTINE KIRBY Crockett Mills, Tennessee Ossolian Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4, Critic 2, Secretary 2, Vice-President 4; Dramatic Club 2, 3, 4. Chastine is usually a very quiet and industrious girl, but sometimes she has to let off a little excess energy. When this happens, she can be just about as lively as any of the Gym girls, and that is saying a great deal. Chastine is planning to be a teacher. We hope she will be as great a success as some of the other girls whom Milligan has received from Crockett Mills. STEVE LACEY A.B.

Our " little Stephen " is one of these all-round boys, who is anything from a first class actor to a star on the basketball floor. Besides this, Steve is good in his classes. He has a convincing personality, especially in debates and at conference. Steve generally goes by the name " Punkin. " If you beg him a long time he might consent to sing you a song, but we warn you that he is a little bashful — sometimes!

Herman, through a four-year college career of service as student, athlete, actor, cheer leader, and president of the class of ' 31, has well merited his distinction as the most versatile member of his class. In all of these varied relationships he has been capable, trustworthy, and diplomatic. Scarcely ever has it been Milligan ' s good fortune to claim a son with so many native talents, which education has not spoiled, but quickened and strengthened. HOWARD McCORKLE B.S. in Commerce Johnson City, Tennessee American Literary Society 1, 2, 3; Football 3, 4, Manager 3; " M " Club 3, 4; Ping-Pong Club 4. " Mac " is our fleet-footed football phantom, who shows plenty of speed in both outdoor and indoor sports. Here is a fellow who appreciates a good hearty laugh, even at his own expense. We predict that " Mac " will make a name for himself in the business world because, as far as we can see, his powers of persuasion are plenty strong, and they seem to produce results.

But it isn ' t all of her. Every department of college life has received its share of her attention. From French verbs to the latest prank in the dormitory, Hazel is always enthusiastically present. Her friendliness and happy spirit will bring her friends and success. IRENE PACE A.B.

A lively pace for anyone to follow in college life has been set by Irene. In scholarship, athletics, and personality, Irene has established standards difficult of attainment. Pace has a way of slipping unobtrusively into the high estimation of her associates, faculty, and students. While never making a big noise about things, she manages to get them done in the best possible way. " Whenever a job needs handling, somehow Irene ' s capable fingers are given its custody. She accepts the task with a grin, and that is the end of the worry. 3, Paoe 35 BQJtPIPAILO % GALILEE PHELPS A.B.

Galilee will succeed at most anything she tries, because she is a good mixer and has such a fine personality. Her ambition is to teach in the Philippines. We hope she likes it over there. ROBT. L. SHUPE B.S. Milligan College, Tennessee American Literary Society 2, 3; Dramatic Club 2, 3, 4; Art Editor " Buffalo " 2. Bob is one of our most able students. He is not without some appeal to the ladies either, as is shown by the fact that he may be seen daily trying his psychology on some small fry. His mind is very inquisitive and original. It would be no surprise to his many friends if he should go far in scientific work, his chosen field. Page 36 p OBQJIF-F-AtLO % jy HAZEL TALLENT A.B.

" Lere " is one of these efficient persons who plans every minute of her time. She has m,uch ambition and is taking advantage of the opportunities at Milligan to learn all she can to help her in later life. Hazel is not socially inclined in a very great degree, but she is a true friend to those whom she considers her friends. CHARLOTTE WATSON A.B. Cookeville, Tennessee Philomathean Literary Society 1, 2, 3, 4; Dramatic Club 2, 3, 4; Society Editor of " Buffalo " 4. Individuality is popping out all over Charlotte.

Milligan too has kept pace with this progress, and the department of Home Economics has grown to a major place in the curriculum of the school. Naturally along with this growth has come the development of the Home Eco- nomics Club, an organization of all the girls who take courses in Home Economics. The Home Economics Cottage is needed for a model practice house, and discussion often centers around the problems of making it more attractive. In this way the giris, of their own initiative, can pool their ideas and gain practical benefits. By affiliation with the state and national associations, the members of the Milligan College Home Economics Club have opportunity to study the nation-wide work in this field. The real value of such an organization formed by the girls themselves is great. Here at the informal meetings they feel more free to voice their own opinions and ideas, which, in the classroom, are more or less restrained. Our aim is to foster a true, wholesome interest in the work of the interior decorator, the nutrition expert, the teacher, the clothing expert, and the home-maker. We consider our time well spent if we can, in any of these ways, make of ourselves better citizens.

The prestige set by the former members is one held in high esteem by those following in their footsteps. The history of the Athenian Literary Society is one which is greatly revered by each of its members. The society for this year has been hindered by the various programs interfering with its work. Yet it can be said that the programs presented have been instructive and educational, the latter being stressed. Each program and speaker is constructively criticized and thus a high type of work is being done by this group of young men in debate and oratory.

Pre-Law Association f [T| — ' HE Milligan College Pre-Law Association was organized in 1929 to create a field I of activity and interest for the young men of the College who are interested in 111 law. It serves as a great agent in acquainting the members with court procedure and the fundamental legal principles. This is accomplished through contact with local members of the bar, as well as through a series of programs presented by the members on the first Thursday of each month. The programs consist of mock trials, political con- ventions, and sessions of Congress; in addition, the members make various addresses on legal subjects. Although the meetings are closed to all except members, the work of the Association has become a matter of interest throughout the student body. The members believe that the legal profession offers a great opportunity for service to humanitv. They believe that it is possible to be a lawyer and a Christian. Realizing the faults and accusations that confront the lawyer, this group of young men has set itself to the task of helping to place the profession on a higher plane. Their sentiment is well expressed in the obvious fact that happiness can prevail only where justice rules. Judge — Earl B.

In a chapel program this year the Club put itself and its activities before the student body in such a way that the school spirit was strengthened and the students made to realize more definitely the place of physical activity at Milligan. This year the " M " Club entered into another field, making it possible for the varsity football men to get sweaters as awards for their achievements. With the help of Mr. Charlie Crouch and Dean Burns the necessary funds were secured from friends of Milligan whereby each man was given a token of Milligan College ' s esteem — a varsity " M " and a sweater.

Being an athletic organization, its aim is to promote clean sports- Ill manship, and to encourage the girls of the school to use their ability toward constructive lines of physical culture. This year there was inaugurated a point system of winning letters. The girls of the school were divided into two teams, the Orange and the Black. These two teams compete for the highest number of total points, which are gained by participation and achievement in scholastic work, literary activities, athletics, and other activities of the school, the physical aspect taking up a major part of the program. A certain number of points are given in each field, and a total of 3 50 permits a girl to wear a monogram, whereas a total of 6 JO points makes the girl eligible to wear a letter. Such a plan has done much to foster interest in all of the constructive activities of the school, as each girl can have a chance to gain distinction in her own line of work. We cannot praise too highly the work of Misses Hazel Nichols and Ada Bess Hart, active " M " Club members, and Bess Connell and Ruby Cochran, honorary members of the Club, in perfecting this plan.

It Page 65 frif BUFFALO % Expression Department ( 111 — ' HE Department of Expression, under the efficient leadership of Miss Dimple I Hart, is one of the most appreciated departments of the college. Through this III department comes the special training that has raised the quality of readings, debates, and orations to an exceedingly high standard. Every program sponsored by Miss Hart displays carefully trained talents of the individual performers and deserves the enthusiastic and hearty approval felt by all. The real value of Expression comes when it awakens the students to their possi- bilities, when it enables a person to take his awkward body and tongue and make a thing of beauty. Being an agent of the soul, mind, and body, Expression brings about a coordination which no other field can accomplish. Late in April, six of the young ladies of this department appeared in the " Annie Lee Lucas " contest. In May, Newell Freeman, the graduate, presented her Evening Recital. Also in the spring the junior members of the department appeared in a one- act play. The department supplemented by the Dramatic Club presented in December an evening of one-act plays: " Escape " , " White Elephants " , " His Japanese Wife " , and " A Pair of Lunatics. " Through the kind invitation from the Soldiers ' Home and Erwin, a full evening play was staged for them. The annual play last year, " Mid- Summer Night ' s Dream " , and many other performances give us an insight into the Department of Expression and its achievements.

During the school year 1930-31 Ossolia has shown even more enthusiasm in both work and play than ever before; even the " new " girls have quickly caught this spirit of loyalty and love for the society. Extra programs have been arranged and talent has been displayed on every hand. The Society as a group realizes that the talents of the members must be developed, that friendships should be formed, and that character must be built in youth. With this idea in mind, Ossolia has worked constantly to develop each member.

The Philomathean Literary Society attempts to meet this need in making it possible for even the most reticent girl to take part in instructive and educational programs. Four times a year a new corps of officers leads the activities of the Society, giving many the opportunity to display their latent powers of leadership. That this phase of school life is becoming recognized is shown by the fact that participation in a literary society is included in the steps in making a " letter " and being admitted into the Girls ' " M " Club. The initiative of the student is being stressed more and more, and the ease and poise which we acquire at our meetings will help us to meet people and take part in community and social activities wherever we may desire to cast our lot. m Eugenia Adamson Ruth Boy Marjorie Copeland Clara Cossaboom Lillian Crabtree Carrie Dishner Irene Elder Grace Hilsenbeck Bernice Hodges Mildred Johnston Lorene Parker Zadie Pearson Irene Shirley Hazel Tallent Elizabeth Tubb Top Row Edith Clark Second Koiv Third Row Rubie Hampton Fourth Roiv Fifth Row Kathryn Shields Bottom Row Eva Lee Brown Oris Cantrell Laura Crider Martha Cross Ruth Daniel Thelma Fogleman Imogene Gardner Rose LaRue Catherine Matthews Frances Officer Myrtle Perkins Galilee Phelps Charlotte Watson Mabel Wolfe Edith Woodard Page 70 T : p (BUFFALO % JTVXL- I Pace 71 [PALO % Ministerial Association I ( [11 — ' HE Ministerial Association is composed of a group of young men who have I definitely accepted the command to " Preach the Word.

Actual experience is ac- cepted as being the greatest of all instructors. Many of the members of this group have left at the expiration of their four years of service adequately prepared for a pleasant pastorate. The aim of the Association is to have a part in pointing young preachers toward a long and successful ministry. This aim has been richly realized in the past; it shall be realized in the future! To augment the other advantages of this group, there is extended a Ministerial Scholarship by the college. This aid proves valuable to many young men who would otherwise be unable to prepare themselves for the work. Each Monday evening finds the " Prayer Room " filled with the members of the Ministerial Association and Volunteer Band for a program of devotion and worship. These meetings are always beneficial and inspiring. This year has seen the attendance records of all previous years surpassed. Both organizations are facing forward toward the future with eager hope.

Among its active workers in training and already in the field now are Misses Florine Cantrell, Myrtle Smith, Lucille Lumsden, June Humphries, and Mrs. Paul Slater. Our Band has profited by the growth of the student body, and is proud to report that its enrollment for the year 1930-31 approximates fifty. The programs, which are arranged from week to week by various members, are built on some vital theme which is both helpful and inspiring. In addition to these weekly meetings held in our prayer room in conjunction with the Ministerial Association, we have visited the churches at Limestone, Tenn., and Hampton, Tenn., where we have conducted in full the Sunday evening services. We anticipate trips to the churches at Elizabethton, Johnson City, Bristol, and Erwin before the close of the year.

During the football season the band supplemented the pep and en- thusiasm which enabled the boys to hit the line just a little harder. Later in the year the band met the need of music at the basketball games. If at any of the games the band has supplied the additional stimulus needed to bring out the best in a " Buffalo " player, we count our efforts successful. The manner in which the student body and the Administration have supported the band has been notable. Both have been a source of encouragement and financial aid. The success of the new organization is largely measured by the ability of the leader. In this case a great deal of credit is due Miss Thelma Fogleman, the student-director of the band. To her effort and experience may be attributed many of our accomplish- ments.

Sixteen men tried out for the team and out of this number, eight were chosen by a select group of the faculty to represent Milligan on the forensic platform this year. Such a plan is just a further step toward placing public speaking on the same high plane of selectivity that athletics have occupied, and it is hoped that time will aid in bringing about a better adjustment of interest, financial aid, and encouragement given to different extra-curricular activities. Another forward step was the procuring of a debate coach, Mr. Edwin Crouch, and the Forensic Council wishes to express to him and the administration their deep appreciation for all the help given this year. Believing that the college youth of today gains much of his concept of life through by-products, the Forensic Council has arranged debates that are instructive in their character. Formerly it was the practice to expound on subjects of local interest, but now as we are living in a world of inter-dependence, we must look further than our local communities, towns, or states. A world view is needed, and we can see the tendency toward national and international questions of concern. And so we have tried to take this broader view in selecting the the subjects for debate. The Freshman team went into the subject of a Federal Department of Education, a topic which is a live issue at the present time, touching nearly every home in America. Two questions of international character absorbed the interests of the Varsity Debaters. With the great changes that have taken place in the last decade in Russia, it is no wonder that the topic of Soviet Recognition should have been debated. The other team had the question of World Free Trade, a subect which has been brewing in the minds of economists for many years, and is now coming to a head in international circles. The following resume of the season will help us to bear in mind the past season with its entertainment and instruction.

Last year the Council carried out very successfully a rather large and representative debating program. Milligan was represented by three teams in that year. The Junior-Senior team, composed of Hazel Tallent, Lanta Strunk, June Humphries, and Bernice Cantrell, opened the season with a triangular de- bate between Milligan, Maryville, and Tusculum. In this debate a new plan was tried, each team debating on a neutral floor. This contest was followed by a dual debate between East Radford College and the Sophomore team of Milligan. The members of this team were Ruby Stone and Bernice Farmer on the Affirmative, and Bess Connell and Joy Gillenwater on the Negative. Later in the season the Freshman teams, com- posed of Grace Hilsenbeck, Dorothy Burgess, Margaret Loveless, and Frances Cart- wright, proved to be very efficient by winning a double victory over Tennessee Wesleyan College. Then the Junior-Senior team closed the season in a debate with Carson- Newman. This vear the council attempted a more extensive program under the direction of its very efficient coach, Miss Graham Belcher. Although Milligan was represented by two teams this year, the number of debates exceeded that of last year. The members of one team were: Affirmative Negative Ruby Stone Joy Gillenwater Mabel Coyle Bess Connell The team debated the question: " Resolved: That all nations should adopt a policy of Free Trade. " The members of the other team were: Affirmative Negative Grace Hilsenbeck Mary Edythe Keys Irene Shirley Esther King The team debated the question: " Resolved: That the Jury System should be abolished in the United States. " At the present time only one girl, Hazel Tallent, is wearing a diamond in her debating pin, an award granted for debating three years. However, this year two other girls, Ruby Stone and Joy Gillenwater, will receive this award.

They won half of their games, II a record that any team might be proud of having. They battled against in- III surmountable odds and won games. They faced the toughest games with their best men out on account of injuries, but the team carried on. Victories were won from King and Concord, both of whom boasted of having the best teams they have had in years. Coach McMurray ended his second season at the helm of the Buffalo machine, and the athletic conditions at Milligan made another great step forward toward loyalty to school, true sportsmanship, and courage in the face of obstacles — the ultimate goals of all competitive athletics. The Buffaloes were very lucky in having Captain Roy Irvin and Manager Joe Keefauver to lead and take care of them. Both performed their duties like gentlemen and earnest workers that they are. Under their guidance the Buffaloes won from Ten- nessee Wesleyan, Biltmore, King, and Concord, and were defeated by Maryville, T. P. I., Carson-Newman, and Lenoir-Rhyne. The game with the Pioneers of Tusculum, ending in a scoreless tie, brought the season to a close. MILLIGAN 19— TENNESSEE WESLEYAN 7 The Buffaloes won their first game of the season. The superior fight and driving punch carried the boys to victory over the much larger team. " Country " Campbell I ' 3L_ Page 89 1S£ B5JFFALO ' 53, O y FOOTBALL T was the great Milligan threat in this battle. Brown and Brown, tackles de luxe, were in every play. The Orange and Black line never wavered, and the Wesleyan giant backfield never made any consistent gains during the game. The boys kept the Athens lads guessing every minute whether they would go around end, through the line, drop-kick, pass, or punt. They held when it was necessary, and the Wesleyan boys were helpless. It was a great victory for Milligan. MILLIGAN 3 8— BILTMORE The first home game of the season was played under the flood-lights of Anglin Field when Biltmore was trounced by a very decisive score. The Buffaloes scored at will over the boys from the " land of the sky " , the pass, Edwards to Taylor, proving too much for the visitors. Morley was out- standing in his work at the out-post. Cap- tain Irvin lead the interference in his usual brilliant fashion, and Baker hit the line for some great gains. Most of the touchdowns came by the air-line since this was the easiest route. The Buffaloes sustained in- juries in this game which handicapped them the remainder of the season. MILLIGAN 0— CARSON-NEWMAN 6 The Buffaloes journeyed down to Jeffer- son City and took a beating from the Car- son-Newman " Fighting Eagles " , the first time Milligan has lost to the Baptist school in four seasons. Injured in the Biltmore game, the Buffaloes could not get started in time. However they played a noble game Page 90 =s 5i_ %P D3QJIFIFAILO FOOTBALL ▼ even though the Holt boys eked out a vic- tory because of a lucky break. Such is foot- ball! Lollis, McCorkle, Stewart, Lane, and Solomon, our All-Conference center, played the best for the Orange and Black. The reserves came through in a great manner to uphold the standard for the Buffaloes. MILLIGAN 0— LENOIR-RHYNE 12 The boys took a little jaunt over into North Carolina and were defeated by the I.enoir-Rhyne Bears by a margin of two touchdowns. Chet Brown and Steve Lacey were not able to even make the trip, due to injuries. The Buffaloes did not have the necessary punch at the right times, and were over-powered by the heavier team. Captain Irvin, Edwards, Milhorn, Lollis, and Bowman bore the brunt of the Bears ' rushes in a formidable manner. Taylor did some fine passing, and time and again he rammed the line for sizeable gains. MILLIGAN 13— CONCORD STATE 7 Doped to lose by three touchdowns, the Buffaloes mounted the insurmountable and rushed the Lions off their feet. It was Milligan ' s game from the start. The West Virginia giants were subdued by the for- ward rushes of the Orange and Black grid- men. Both touchdowns came by the air- line, Edwards to Taylor and vice-versa. Captain Irvin turned in his best game of the season, and Baker, Edwards, the Browns, Lacey, Bowman, Morley, and Solomon played like the veterans that they were. The Buffa- loes simply were not to be denied. Thev were like a high powered machine with the fast charging line and the clicking back- Pace 91 IFALO % D-OiiiDiy 1 ©AIKJFU £ DQ. DM DN Stie-wau d " FOOTBALL ▼ field, and passes completed for thirty-five yards were not out of the ordinary in this game. It was a victory by a great team. MILLIGAN COLLEGE 3— KING Again the vaulted King Tornado be- came only a gentle breeze before the mad stampede of the Buffaloes. The galaxy of imported stars and all their prowess could not subdue the Buffalo spirit. It was a game of thrills. Captain Irvin lead the in- terference in his usual fashion, and Milhorn set the world on fire with end runs. It was this same fleet back that intercepted a pass and ran some forty-five yards to set the ball in position for Edwards, the man with the educated toe, to drop-kick the ball through the bars for the only marker of the hard conflict. This happened in the last thirty seconds of play. Frank Brown, Solomon, Lollis, Morley, Gilley, and Stewart were towers of defense in the line, while Taylor and Baker plunged the line for much yard- age. This game was just another mark of Milligan supremacy. MILLIGAN 0— MARYVILLE 39 Just the same old story! Milligan journ- eyed down to Maryville and had its spirit broken before the game started. The odds were just too great. It proved only a hol- low victory for Maryville. The Buffaloes fought till the final whistle ended the night- mare. The heavier Highlander team passed and ran for their six touchdowns only after they had worn out the Orange and Black squad. It was impossible for Milligan to win. None of the Buffaloes starred, yet Page 92 P BdHPfPAILO r FOOTBALL ▼ each deserves a special word of commenda- tion for his true sportsmanship in this game. They knew they were beaten, yet they kept plunging and charging. The sooner for- gotten, the better! MILLIGAN 20— T. P. I. 2 5 In one of the most colorful games ever played on Anglin Field, the Buffaloes and the Fighting Eagles of Tennessee Tech played university style football. It was a game of surprises, thrills, and heartaches. By one lucky run of eighty yards the Techmen beat the Buffaloes, but if the game had lasted two more minutes it would have been an- other victory for the Orange and Black. Milligan played as inspired men. Every- body starred! The line from end to end was like a stone wall at times, and at other times like a battering ram. Passes were tossed and completed for large gains. Lane, Gilley, Brown Brothers, Lollis, Edwards, Bowman, Baker, Solomon, Morley, and Tay- lor were the special luminaries for Milligan. This was one of the best games the Buffaloes played during the whole season. MILLIGAN 0— TUSCULUM The Thanksgiving Game was played on the Pioneer Field at Tusculum. In a veritable snow storm the Buffaloes and the Pioneers battled, clawed, and froze to a scoreless tie. It was impossible for either team to score. The intense cold, the chilling gale, the frozen ground, all of these made play almost impossible. The true stamina of the players was shown when they played under such conditions. In spite of these D.ANIE K CAM[P(BIE-(L(L J w QT[DWA0 lM Pacje 93 p BdJIPIPALO ' 53, FOOTBALL — ( continued ) handicaps, the boys exhibited some real football. Captain Irvin, halfback, Milhorn, halfback, Lacey, guard, McCorkle, halfback, Bowman, end, and ex-Captain Chet Brown, tackle, heard the final call of their Alma Mater and responded in a creditable manner. This game marked the passing of six football players, good sports, and true gentlemen. Brown and Bowman brought distinction to Milligan during their sojourn by making the All-Conference selection, Brown making it in his second and third years and Bowman in his third year. In conclusion, allow the " Buffalo " to extend heartiest congratulations to Captain- Elect Lew Taylor, twice selected All-Conference fullback. Under his guidance next year the Buffaloes should win all their games. Also, the reserves come in for their share of the credit. Without them football would not be possible. A chain is just as strong as its weakest link. A football team is just as strong as its reserve material. They saved the day for Milligan many times. To the 1931 Edition of the Stampeding Buffaloes, the " Buffalo " wishes every success possible.

Out of a squad of twenty-five or more it was hard to select a small squad of ten men. So in the first several games the fans were set back with astonishment when three complete teams trotted out on the floor and bombarded the baskets with their shots. All three teams saw action in the first game of th e season with Erwin " Y " , and the " methods of Knute Rockne " worked well. In fact it was hard to tell which team was best, so we hung up a 54-25 score and let it go at that. Two nights later the News Hounds from Johnson City made their appearance, and again Coach Eyler ' s teams, minus the services of Morley, came through with a great victory; and again it was a toss-up to see which men would remain on the squad. As will be remembered, we came out on the long end of a 42-16 score. By the time the boys had gone home Christmas and filled up on fruit cake and turkey, it looked as though basketball would take second place. But three days later the boys put up a bold front against the Airedales from L. M. U. and the final score was 43 to 31 in favor of our Alma Mater. The next night, January 10, Coach Bacon ' s team of Unionites came into town. Being Union men they did not care to work so hard on Saturday night, so the Buffaloes stampeded them to the tune of 43 to 29. This was the night when the so-called second team hit its stride and came through with most of the points. Morley was still a little shaky, but Roark and Randolph surely did hit the straps. King came next with a bunch of Yankees, unknown in strength, but purported to be of great skill in the art of basketball. But lack of practice showed up on the boys from Bristol, and after a close game for the first seven miutes every Milligan man began to function, and there was another stampede from then on. As history now records it, the score was 47 to 15 in favor of the home team. Then on the night after exams came the hair-raising battle with our Methodist friends from Emory, Va. As " one " sports writer said, it was nip and tuck all of the way. Things looked bad, and although Milligan was leading at several stages of the game, the excitement was too much for the Dean of Women, so she said. In a final spurt we managed to keep ahead and the score was 3 5 to 32. It was rumored about that exams would be abolished if they produced such games as this.

[Ucie-v -CAPTAIN- Bowman ■MANAGER- BASKETBALL On Thursday morning, January 29, ten Buffalo players started on a three-day trip. The first game was with Union at Barbourville. Remembering the game last year when Union jumped ahead and froze the ball, the Milli- gan team got the jump right away and sank a couple of baskets before the Kentuckians could get their balance. From then on they kept out in front with their deadly long shots,, and the Buffs carried away a game from Union for the fourth straight time, the score being 40 to 28. L. M. U. was played on the next night, and what happened will be written in the glorious chronicle of the school at Harrogate. Never having defeated Milligan they were out for revenge. Concentrating their attack with Fulkerson and Johnson doing most of the shooting, the Airedales held the Buffs in check while they were rolling up the points, and Milligan lost its first game of the season, 43 to 3 6. The home crowd was so happy that it nearly shook down the gym, even giving yells for our team. On Saturday night the Buffaloes opened up their heavy artillery on the Highlanders of Maryville, but the ball would roll around the rim of the basket and fall into the hands of an opponent. The Buffaloes kept on the heels of Maryville, however, and gave them a scare that won ' t be forgotten very soon. We lost, 31 to 26, but that means that we ' re getting closer to our goal, for the margin was more than twice that much last year. On Monday night, February 2, a new team in the form of Lynchburg made its appearance in the Cheek Gymnasium. For three quarters the game was so close that no one would have wagered much on the outcome. The Virginia boys were hitting the hoops from the center of the floor, and it was not until the last seven minutes of play that the Buffaloes were able to pull away and bring their total to 5 while holding Lynchburg to 37. Up to this time Milligan had not dropped a home collegiate game for four years, and the strain of forty- odd straight victories was getting to be too great. So it seemed to be up to Carson-Newman, with their best team in years, to squeeze out a one-point victory over our boys; but it was not without much trouble. With the lead shifting time and again the regular time ended with the score tied. In the overtime period the Buffs jumped into the lead by four points, and when the Eagles made a free throw with only two minutes to play, the Milligan boys began to freeze the ball; but they lost possession twice, and that meant four points against them, and the game ended, 3 9 to 3 8. fflrl Page 96 P EQJDF-tF-ALO x BASKETBALL On Thursday, February 5, the Buffaloes jumped into a seven-point lead over T. P. I. before the boys from West Tennessee shot a point. Then things began happen- ing, and the Engineers took a nine-point lead at the half. In the second spasm the Milligan team jumped back into the lead after crawling up on T. P. I. and held it until a couple of minutes before the end of the game. Three long shots put the game on ice for the visitors, and we were again on the short end of the score, 44 to 41. On the following Monday the Buffs journeyed to King, and it was hard to tell whether it was a basketball game or a football game that the boys played. Head- gears would have been in order, but not to be outdone the boys from Milligan chalked up a 35 to 24 victory. Morley and Roark were the big shots with their deadly aim. On Thursday morning, February 12, the team left for an invasion of Middle Tennessee. At Cooke ville there was just too much T. P. I. and the squad from Milligan lost, 44 to 24. The next night at M. T. S. T. C. the boys woke up. The second team started and jumped into a nine-point lead which was slowly cut down. The first team entered the fray and things just rocked along on even terms until the last few minutes of the game. Then Randolph and Roark, playing forwards, and Taylor at center began to click on their plays and Milligan pulled away for a 34 to 29 victory. Monday night, February 16, we had a crack at a team in the Southern Conference, and it is an acknowl- edged fact that the University of Tennessee knows that it had a game. Coach Eyler started his entire second team which jumped into a 3 to 2 lead. Then the boys from Knoxville bore down from the middle of the floor and counted most of their points on long flips. The Buffalo first team came in but still the Volunteers stayed out in front at the half. In the second period Milligan came back strong and the game went along with never more than four points difference between the teams. In this half Milligan outplayed Tennessee, but it was not quite enough, and U. T. held its lead by freezing the ball the last three minutes and the game ended with Milligan right on Tennessee ' s heels, 36 to 33. It would be hard to pick any heroes. The game was not fast but it was deliberate, each team waiting for an opening. It was really a victory for Milligan as she showed Southern Conference class on a foreign floor. If the game had been at Milligan where the students could have cheered the team on, the Knoxville papers would have carried a different story the next morning. On Saturday, February 2 1 , the Buffaloes invaded Emory and Henry and for the fourth time in the same number of encounters the Milligan squad sent Emory ' s warriors to the shower-room in defeat. Emory led for most of the game, but in the last fifteen minutes the TavojdhJ [Kc-QrlfAlUvlDi WaxDBsJF =CoI Pace 97 ECUDF-1F-AL BASKETBALL Buffs " got hot " and passed up the Virginia boys to win 38 to 26. Roark counted twelve points and Taylor hit the straps consistently for the much needed counters to offset the one-handed shots of Cathcr and Mackey. By comparative scores we are now 17 points better than V. P. I., a strong Southern Conference contender. Next came Tusculum on their home court on Mon- day and it was just a case of too much Milligan. Con- necting with only two long shots the Buffs worked the ball around, every man handling it, and then some one would break under for a basket. Time and again they would work the hidden ball play and hot even Taylor would know where it was many times. Anyway he did some mighty good work under the basket. Morley and Roark just burned the nets. Culvahouse played a good game until he got too rough and had to leave. Hale, Lacey, Campbell, and Keefauver held the Tusculum team well in check, and Woods, although not a high scorer, was an important cog in a Milligan machine of real teamwork. The score? 69 to 3 J ! On the following Thursday there was another track meet at the Cheek Gymnasium as the Buffaloes quad- rupled the score on the Pioneers of Tusculum. Taylor and Randolph were bear-cats under the basket, while Woods, Culvahouse, and Morley sank them at will. As someone in the stands shouted, " Give it to Jeff! " that luminary took the ball under his own basket and drib- bled through the entire Tusculum outfit for a field goal. Captain Lacey, Keefauver, and Hale, playing for the last time on the Milligan floor turned in some splendid work. The score was 62 to 15. Monday, March 2, the Buffaloes got another crack at Carson-Newman, this time on the Eagles ' floor. Both teams, playing real basketball, fought all the way, the score being tied seven times. Randolph was so " hot " he could kick them in the basket. Taylor, Morley, and Roark accounted for most of the other points, but Keefauver, Campbell, Lacey, and Hale were right there on the de- fense and held the Baptist aces well. The Buffs just took the Eagles off their high perch and came back with a H to 47 score, a fitting revenge for an earlier defeat. Thus the regular season ended. The Smoky Mountain Conference Tournament came next on March 5, 6, and 7 at Kingsport. The first night the Buffaloes turned the King Tornado into just an ordinary wind and the score was 44 to 25. Milligan jumped into a lead which King threatened at the half, the score being 17 to 14 with King trailing. In the second period the Buffs began to function and ran up such a lead that they just coasted along the last ten minutes. Roark and Morley were the big offensive shots of the game, while Lacey ' s guarding of Townley was little short of phenominal. However these boys could not carry on alone and they were aided by Taylor, Campbell, Hale, Keefauver, Randolph, and Woods. The game was a little ragged, but it was not necessary to " prt out " to win. It Page 9S 1 BUFFALO On Friday night, March 6, in the semi-finals of the tournament the Buffaloes met L. M. U. which had drawn a bye in the first round of the tournament. The boys from Milligan jumped into the lead and kept six or eight points ahead until the second half when we began pulling away for a longer lead. Toward the end of the game Coach Eyler used his subs and L. M. U. tried to rally, but the spurt fell short and Milligan won out, 40 to 33. Jeff Roark and Taylor were the big shots on the offense while Captain Lacey was just unbeatable as a guard. For two nights now the total points registered by the men he guarded added up to a measly " one. " These men, Johnson and Townley, are usually the high- point men, and that made it all the more remarkable. Campbell, Morley, and Hale were real cogs in the machine-like Milligan team, and Randolph, Keefauver, and Woods held up well for the short time they were in the game. The last game of the Tournament was with Carson-Newman which had defeated Maryville and East Tennessee Teachers to enter the finals. Milligan took the lead at the start of the game, and although we were never overtaken, Carson-Newman crawled up within one point of us several times. At the half the Buffs had the edge, 18 to 13, and in one of the most exciting games ever seen we drew away slowly for a 34 to 24 victory, thereby winning the Conference Championshi p for the second straight time. Taylor displayed some beautiful floor work, while Morley, Randolph, and Roark carried the burden of dropping the ball into the basket. Milligan played an extremely tight defensive game, and Lacey, Keefauver, and Hale held their men admirably. Lacey by his air-tight guarding, Roark by his deadly aim, and Taylor by his consistent work as pivot man were placed on the All-Conference team, Bailey of Teachers College and Smith of Carson-Newman occupying the other two positions on that mythical five. Such a fitting climax was an appropriate setting for Lacey, Hale, and Keefauver to play their last game for Milligan, and for the Buffaloes to again lead the Smoky Mountain Conference.

But from the standpoint of loyalty to school and team, and the never-say-die spirit, the Buffalettes had a most successful season. They defeated Carson-Newman for the second consecutive year and gained hard-earned vic- tories over the sextettes from Emory and Henry and T. P. I. The Buffalettes were handi- capped from the very beginning by the lack of material. Many of last year ' s championship machine did not return, thus crippling the hopes of the team. But due to the tutelage of Coach Hart, a team that was above the average was placed on the floor. Captain Irene Pace and Manager Hazel Nichols deserve much praise and credit for the part they took in the cause of the Buffalettes. They worked for the success of the team all the time. Everybody, from the reserves to the starting sextette, played with the best they had at all times. Milligan 2 8 — Appalachian Teachers 37 The Buffalettes opened their collegiate sea- son by losing a hard-fought game to the su- perior team from Boone. The more experienced girls from North Carolina were lucky to win from the inexperienced Buffalettes. Cossa- boom, Dyer, and McFall were the shining lights for Milligan in this game. Captain Pace played her usual efficient game at guard. It was only in the last quarter that the visitors were able to get enough of a lead on the Buffalettes to win the game. Milligan 10— L. M.

The Milligan guards played a good game. The Buffalettes can be complimented on the fact that they did not quit when the score was piled up against them. The true Milligan spirit came to the front and the Buffalettes went into the game with renewed vigor. It was an ac- complishment to score ten points on L. M. U. the way they were playing that night. Milligan 30 — Emory and Henry 26 The Buffalettes hit their stride and led the Emory girls all the way. It was Milligan ' s game from the very start. Hyder, Dyer, Booth, and Cross were the best for Milligan in this battle. The game was close throughout and it was only through the excellent team-work that the Buffalettes were able to gain the victory. Milligan 32 — Carson-Newman 14 Again excellent team-work beat the Eag- lettes from Carson-Newman. For the second consecutive year the Buffalettes defeated the girls from Jefferson City. This was the best game that Milligan played during the whole season. Justis, Cossaboom, Donnelly and Cap- tain Pace were the leading lights for Milligan. The Buffalettes were simply unbeatable in this important game and it was a great victory for Milligan. Milligan 22 — Emory and Henry 2 5 The Emory and Henry sextette came to Milligan to avenge the defeat handed them by the Buffalettes a week before and accomplished its purpose by a narrow margin of three points. Every Buffalctte played like a veteran and the game was hard fought all the way. There was never more than four points difference between the teams at any time during the game.

The fast, tricky forwards of the opponents were just too much for the Hart proteges. Dyer and Donnelly were the leading scorers for Milligan, while Cross and Captain Pace bore the brunt of the attack of the Teachers ' forwards. Milligan 27 — Tennessee Tech 13 Coach Hart ' s proteges avenged the defeat handed them at Cookeville by routing the Tech lassies at Milligan by a doubled score. The opponents seemed dazed by the floor- work of the Buffalettes, the half ending with Milligan in the lead, 16 to 4. The visitors tried a rally in the last quarter only to have the BufFalette guards nip it in the bud before it grew to any size. Everybody starred for Milli- gan, Melton, Shields, Dyer, McFall, and Cross were the outstanding ones. It was a great vic- tory! Milligan 22 — L. M. U. 41 The Buffalettes were overwhelmed the sec- ond time by the Championship sextette from Cumberland Gap. They just could not get started against this superior team. L. M. U. tripled the score on them during the first half, but the Buffalettes came back in the last half to battle them to a standstill. The L. M. U. forwards, Parsons and Parsons, were too fast for the Milligan guards, and our forwards were powerless with the L. M. U. guards on them. The Buffalettes never lost heart but kept fight- ing to the very end. Pace 102 BUFFALO ' 33 Milligan 20 — Middle Tennessee Teachers 34 The Buffalettes lost their last home game in the last three minutes of play in one of the most heart-rending games ever played on the Milligan floor. The score was tied up to the last three minutes, but the Teachers ' forwards made a few miracle shots to forge ahead and win the game. Captain Pace, Booth, Loveless, Dyer, and Justis were the luminaries for Milligan. The Buffalettes gave the best they had. Milligan 25 — Appalachian Teachers 44 The Buffalettes ended their season by losing to the fast, superior team from Ap- palachian Teachers. The Buffalettes could not get going against this team. Most of the Milligan players went out via the foul route and the Boone girls piled up the score. Captain Pace ended her college career by some real playing. She was one of the best guards that has ever played on the Milligan floor, never a star, but ever consistent. This quality makes best players in every instance. She is the only player lost through graduation this year, a great loss, yet a proud one. CNO Top Row — Coach Hart, Dyer, Donnelly, Hyder, Melton, Cossaboom, Booth, Justis, Cross, I.
