BOYS ' " M " CLUB OFFICERS Arnold Albright President Robert Akers Vice-President James Sanders Secretary-Treasurer Membership in the Boys ' " M " Club is extended to those young men of athletic ability who have worthily participated in at least one of the sports sponsored by Milligan College. These sports are football, basket ' ball, baseball, track, and tennis. Through this club a voice is given to young men in athletics to express their interests, plans and thoughts as a unified group. The purpose and objective is to build a mutual feeling of co-operation with all organi- zations of the college; to further the true spirit and essence of sportsmanship in all athletic contests; to foster fellowship and close association among all students, both at home and with other colleges; to cherish and covet the " M " and to abide by and uphold the interests and aspirations of the institution which the letter symbolizes. THE BUFFALO Page 31 GIRLS ' " M " CLUB OFFICERS Beatrice Rice President Pauline Orr Vice-President June Cox Secretary and Treasurer When the Girls ' " M " Club was organized in 1927 the only way a girl could gain entrance was by playing basket-ball. She not only had to make the varsity squad but also play in a majority of the games for one season. She was then given a letter and became a member of the " M " Club providing she lived up to certain standards or ideals. Several years ago the point system was devised whereby a girl may become a member without playing basket ' ball. She can win points by participating in various other activi ' ties on the campus both athletic and literary. When she earns a total of 650 points she is entitled to a letter and membership in the Club. This organization in all of its undertakings strives to uphold the high ideals of Milligan College. Page 32 THE BUFFALO THE GLEE CLUB Howard Johnson President Polly Linkous Vice-President Minnie Burns Secretary Jack Willis Treasurer Laura Mary Smith Accompanist Mrs. C. L. Johnson Director The Glee Club completed the current year with four major performances to its credit. On December 18, the organization presented a Christmas cantata. The Lost Carol, with book and lyrics by Frances Simpson and music by Ruth Dale. The Club appeared on the All-College program in the Annual Music Festival at East Tennessee Teachers College and in the spring concert of the Music Department of our own college. It merged its efforts with those of other organizations of the school in presenting the May Festival. This year for the first time the club undertook a capella singing with which it has accomplished a great deal. Our program at Teachers College included two a capella numbers. The Glee Club has also aided in the church services with special selections. THE BUFFALO P. H. WtLSHlMEK MtMUKIAL UBRAIfr MILLIGAN COLLEGE WILLIGAN COLLEGF t ' ' • 76R? Page 33 THE DRAMATIC CLUB and MASQUE Juliette Lodter President Sam Cecil Vice-President Jack Willis Secretary John Barnard Treasurer The Dramatic Club aspires to make itself a dramatic workshop in which setting, make ' up, and coaching may be studied. The club accepts its members only after they have been coached and have appeared in a tryout play before the club. This club has a senior organi2;ation known as " The Masque " , made up of students who have earned their way to this coveted organisation by playing a leading role or three minor roles in a major play. The Dramatic Club produces numerous one-act plays during the year and entertains for different clubs and organisations in the adjoining towns. The club feels that peculiar benefit can come from an exchange of dramatic performances between schools. So we continued the precedent established last year and exchanged plays with Carson ' Newman and Lincoln Memorial University. Milligan presented " A Doll ' s House " by Henrik Ibsen; Carson ' Newman, " Icebound " by Davies; and the Lincoln Players, " Stephen Foster " written by their own dramatic director, Mr. Earl Hobson Smith. These exchanges proved very enjoyable. The Commencement play was " She Stoops to Conquer " by Oliver Goldsmith. The club is proud of the work that has been done by its members and it is extremely sorry to lose this year through graduation some of its most valued and capable members. Page 34 THE BUFFALO THE DRAMATIC CLUB AND MASQUE A DOLL ' S HOUSE THE BUFFALO Page 35 THE MILLIGAN PRE-MED CLUB OFFICERS Sam Cecil President Bob Hilsenbeck Vice-President J. R. Woods Secretary-Treasurer It should be the aim of every pre-med student to gain a general knowledge of and acquaintanceship with the fundamentals of the medical profession and to be constantly aware of contemporary events, discoveries, and inventions in the medical world. For this purpose the Milligan Pre-Med Club was organized and to this end its activities are directed. Ten years have seen this club progress from a mere idea to a recognized and respected position among the student organizations of the College. Its weekly meetings, its numerous guest lecturers wisely chosen from the medical staffs of nearby cities, its occasional visits to hospitals and operating rooms, and its Annual Banquet make the club both enjoyable and instructive to those who constitute its membership. Page 36 THE BUFFALO HOME ECONOMICS CLUB OFFICERS Elizabeth Wright President Eva Lee Deaton Vice-President Francis Hendrix SecretaryTreasurer Any girl enrolled in the home economics classes of Milligan College is eligible for active membership in the Home Economics Club. The club has as its objectives to develop a professional spirit and co-operation among its members; to bring the students into closer contact with the greater home economics organizations and activities in the state and nation ; and to keep in touch with the current topics in the home economics world and its general scientific trend. Its desire is to establish a closer relationship between the home economics department and the other departments of the college.

Officers of MimSTERlAL ASSN. Frank Jones, President John Kelly, Vice-President James Chasteen, Sec. Treas. The Student Volunteer Band and Ministerial Association constitutes a fellowship of students who are actively interested in Christian service. It is an interdenominational organisation which seeks to carry out the mission of the church. It attempts to develop and deepen the spiritual life of all those with whom it comes in contact, as well as to streng- then the spiritual life of its own members. It is the custom of the group to give religious programs, not only on the campus but also in various churches not too distant from the school. It attempts to promote mission- ary interest in those hitherto uninterested, crystallizes an informed interest into an active purpose, which finds expression in service abroad, world-minded service at home, financial support, advocacy, and prayer. It attempts to serve by carrying out the relation of the Christian faith to the issues — economic, racial, political — that affect the world ' s life. Page 38 THE BUFFALO FORENSIC COUNCIL OFFICERS John Barnard President Nelson St. John Vice-President Mary Louisa Johnston Secretary ' Treasurer Abe J. Gabriele Manager During the year 1936-37 the Forensic Council sponsored a boys ' and a girls ' debate program. Although the schedule was not so full as in former years, the work done affords an excellent foundation for future expansion of the forensic program at MiUigan. There was a departure from the usual decision type debate in the introduction of a number of noH ' decision debates. The girls ' debate program was climaxed by a very successful trip to the Grand Eastern Tournament held at Winthrop College, Rock Hill, South Carolina. Here our teams re- ceived honorable mention for their debate participation. As a result of this trip the girls are anticipating a fuller forensic schedule for the coming year, one which will include not only the usual debates but also other forms of public speaking. THE BUFFALO Page 39 CONFERENCE SH ' Sfl A T L E T C S BOOK FOUR • " v ' . " : :.,i 1936 FOOTBALL SQUAD Steve Lacey Coach FOOTBALL Ralph Culvahouse Manager THE BUFFALO Page 43 FOOTBALL. 1936 September first saw another husky bunch of Buffaloes assemble on Anglin Field for the first practice of the year, in preparation for pigskin wars with other members of the Smoky Mountain Conference. There were only a very few experienced men in the squad of thirty-five, but a more determined, better spirited, more ambitious group never wore the orange and black. In the first game, with Mars Hill, the Buffalo offense was checked for no points during the first half, but the second half saw more finesse and determina ' tion, giving Milligan a 20 ' 0 victory. The opposition in the next few games was strong and touchdowns for the Buffs were pretty scarce but the boys soon awoke to their possibilities and carried the last four games. Throughout the season the Milligan offense was as good as any in the Con- ference, but the defense was somewhat ragged and inconsistent. The final game with East Tennessee Teachers College, however, saw the Buffs display as fine a defense as the Conference has ever developed, attaining a victory of 7 ' 6. This " ' Turkey Day Classic " , the climax of the season, is always hard ' fought and well-played by both teams. There have been in years past greater Milligan elevens from the standpoint of natural ability and power, but the ' 36 edition of the ' ' Stampeding Buffaloes " displayed a fighting spirit as great as any ever seen on a gridiron.

This was due to the loss of such able men as Captain Ayers, Gilley, Shelley, Boiling, Fair, Nave and Labowicz from the 1936 squad. But with the appearance of such capable players as Swanay, Webb, Akers, Howington, Cooper and Hughes, accompanied by a fine spirit of cO ' operation and determina ' tion to win, our chances grew brighter. At the end of the season our record showed that we had won seven games and had lost nine in the Conference with three losses marked up against us in games out- side the Conference. But in this season many notable accomplish- ments stand out. For the first time since Milligan and East Ten- nessee Teachers College have re- newed athletic relationships, a Milli- gan team defeated its arch rival twice in the same year, the scores were 28-27 and 33-25; three of our losses were by only one point, name- ly, Cullowhee Teachers, Maryville, and Hiwassee; the fine leadership Capt.

Swanay, Wagner, Roberts, Wooldridge, Ber- geron. Peace, and Hale, who by their stiff opposition in the practice scrimmages with the varsity, did much in making our season as successful as it was. Our lettermen were Captain Albright, Varnell, Perkins, Hamlin, Howington, J. Swanay, McLean, Cooper, and Akers. Of this num- ber only two, Albright and Akers, are lost by graduation. With such a large number returning next year, we look forward to a very success- ful season.

Knowing that he had quite a task before him to develop a team he set out with determination to make the best season on record. The team developed rapidly under the expert coaching of Mr. Lacey, sweeping everything before it. However, near the end of the season the undefeated team of Appalachian Teachers College added two more victories to their record when the BufFalettes fell before their blow. The season ended with only two defeats, one tie, and eight victories. Among the games won were two from the strong L. M. U. team. This year the team loses only two players. Captain Ruth Quails and Beatrice Rice who have played for four years. The outlook for the team next year is very bright considering the abilities displayed by Kelley, Jones, Garrison, and McMillin and the proved talents of Orr, Cox and Burns.
