DEDICATION As a small to en of our esteem and appreciation we, the Class of " 38 affectionately dedicate this volume of the BUFFALO to MRS. A. F. COCHRANE —who, through many years of devotion and service to Milligan College, has endeared herself to the hearts of all; who in her capacity as housemother of the Boys ' Dormitory has, through her stern discipline and dilligent attention, spared no efforts in helping to make and keep Pardee Hall a clean and pleasant home; who with patient and tender nursing has seen many of us through pain and sickness; who by her love and loyalty to Milligan ideals has been a constant source of inspiration to students and faculty alike.

President June Cox : Vice-President Florence Potter Secretary Ira Morley Treasurer Miss Dorothy Kester Sponsor The Masque is a Senior dramatic organization whose officers are also the governing bcdy for The Dramatic Club, its Junior organization. A student may become a member of The Dramatic Clubby appearing in a tryout play; he may become a member of The Masque by playing a leading role or three minor roles in a major play, or by acting as the head of a technical department for one major play or as technical assistant for three major plays. Each candidate for membership must have made a definite contribution to dramatics on the Milligan College Campus. » 32 DRAMATIC CLUB During the year The Masque produces two major plays and numerous one-act plays, spon- sors the Fall and Spring Speech recitals, and provides entertainment for different clubs and organizations in the adjoining towns. All major plays are under the direction of Miss Dorothy Kester, instructor in Speech. For several years the Masque has exchanged plays with various colleges. The play the club used for the exchange this year was Moliere ' s " The Doctor In Spite Of Himself. " It had for its curtain raiser " A Dear Little Wife, " by Gerald Dunn. 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. 33 lilligan College Library Miliigan College, Tennessee GLEE CLUB Jack Willis President Grace Carroll Vice-President and Accompanist Carsie Hyder Secretary Howard Johnson Treasurer Miss Frances Yearly Director The Milligan College Glee Club has had a very successful year. Early in the fall the Club sang several numbers in chapel. The organization went to Johnson City on Sunday afternoon, December 12, and sang Dvorak ' s lovely " Hymn of Love " in the Community Classic which was held by the Optimist Club to provide an Empty Stocking Fund. The next Sunday evening, December 19, at the Christian Endeavor hour, the Glee Club presented a program of well-known Christmas songs. The following evening the group partici- pated in the Christmas Concert. The Glee Club participated in the All-College program in the Annual Music Festival at East Tennessee State Teachers College. The Club also helped the other organizations of the school in the May Festival. The crowning event of the year was the operetta, " Who Discovered America? " . This was given late in the spring. Besides the work, there have been several socials that each member of the Club enjoyed verv much. » 34 « HOME ECONOMICS CLUB Frances Hendrix President Minnie Burns Vice-President Ruth Pressnell Secretary Carsie Hyder Treasurer Potter Hennessee Reporter 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 pro ' fessional 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. » 35 CAMERA CLUB First Semester Second Semester Dr. C. H. Crudden Webb Dishman . . . Rosalba Hawkins Raymond Perkins. Gwendolyn Mathes Lanora Geissler . . Raymond Perkins Oris Hyder Presideni . Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Under the sponsorship of Dr. C. H. Crudden, The Camera Club is one of the most interesting and progressive innovations of Milligan College. During its weekly meetings, talks, demonstrations, experiments, and moving pictures are sources of interest to the members. At some of the meetings, developing, printing and en- larging are actually carried out. Well planned excursions furnish opportunity for organized group application of what has been learned about taking snapshots. Through efforts of the Camera Club, students learn the correct photographic techniques not only of successfully taking day and night pictures with various types of equipment and under various conditions of background and lighting, but also of developing and printing their own pictures. The desire of the Club is to learn to make better pictures that will bring forth more vivid memories in the future. 36 THE VOLUNTEER BAND Olive Hinderer President Estelle Elliott Vice-President V. Velma Smith Secretary Rosa Gray Artist Secretary Dorothy Fox Song Leader Laura Mary Smith Pianist The Volunteer Band is a permanent organization of students who gather together in weekly meetings for the purpose of enriching their spiritual lives. They give particular attention to the study of the means of improving themselves for greater Christian service in general and Church leadership in particular. The activities that have received the most emphasis this year have been daily devotions and saving and organization of material for religious programs. The meetings are held every Monday evening in the Prayer Room, a room on the third floor of the Administration Building that has been set apart and furnished for the purpose of pro- viding a simple homelike place for the students ' personal devotions and meditations and for group meetings. In addition to these regular meetings, vesper services for the entire student body and special programs for nearby churches are planned. 37 BOYS ' " M " CLUB Frank Taylor President Ray Anderson Vice-President Jesse Boatman 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 organizations of the college; to further the true spirit and essence of sportsmanship in all athletics 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 symbolises. » 38 « GIRLS ' " M " CLUB Since its organization in 1927, the Girls ' " M " Club has become one of the strongest advo- cates of Milligan principles and ideals. The members of this club are girls who have excelled in athletic contests or have accumulated the required number of points necessary to become a member. Year by year this club has grown and is now ranked on the same level with any organization on the campus. With the promotion of friendly feeling and good fellowship as its aim, the Girls ' " M " Club is recognized as the best example of Milligan womanhood. 39 THE STAMPEDE Sponsored by The Senior Class ■ ■■■-. wr a £ Wr ■■■■ ' ' ■ : ' was prestrttStQJ staff. vi - ' ' ' ' " ■ to a large group of Christian j before the close of the term last Florence Potter for her wise sel- j, BlU Davis ; a senior, acted as PAPER STAFF Left to Right James Hale Business Manager Jimmie Edens Circulation Manager Marvin Gilliam Editor Carsie Hyder Alumni Corliss Wooldridge Sports Editor Nera Kennedy Rett ' s Martha Shull Advertising Lillard Clayton Typist Ruth Presnell Typist Lanora Geissler Typist Manager Reable Griffith Feature Jack Willis News J.

R. Woods Secretary-Treasurer Being an organization whose work is of a technical nature, the membership of the Pre-Med Club is of necessity limited. On the other hand, the medical profession demands quality and for this reason, scholarship is one of the prerequisites for membership in the club. In the weekly meetings of the club, each member gets the opportunity of leading a discussion on some problem in medicine and also of hearing various members of the medical profession. Much practical experience is gained through occasional visits to nearby hospitals and operating rooms. The Annual Banquet of the Club is one of the great social events of the year.

To the six veterans from last year ' s teams were added several Freshmen debaters who showed excellent spirit and much promise for the future. Following an innovation of last year, several non ' decision debates were held. In addition, the girls attended the Women ' s Smoky Mountain Forensic Tournament at Bristol, Tennessee, and the boys, the Men ' s Tournament at Johnson City. Contrary to former practice, there was only one coach, Professor J. Goff Long, for both boys and girls who rendered great service by sound advice and enthusiastic support. MEMBERS J.

From the opening whistle in the initial game with Mars Hill to the closing gun in the Thanks- giving Day Classic with the State Teachers College, the Buffs showed their usual fight and sportsmanship. After winning their opening experimental contest with Mars Hill College the Laceymen found the opposition in the next few games strong and the touchdowns for them very scarce. But the Buffs soon woke up to their possi- bilities and finished the season by attaining a victory of 18-6 over their bitterest rival, Teachers College. Laws Center DUGGINS Guard Range Guard ITCHtE Archer Dellinger Pike FUGATE McClellan End End Guard Halfbac Tackle End FOOTBALL, 1937 To give glory and praise to any outstanding stars for the season would be unjust because of the excellent teamwork and cooperative spirit shown by substitutes and regulars alike. But the mention of a few men who might be classed as outstanding would include the consistency, brilliant generalship and all-around ability of Captain Frank Taylor; the ability of " Dud " Roberts to thrill the fans with his wild exploits; the outstanding line work of Poe, Boatman, McClellan and O ' Donnell. Certainly the line plunging and ability of Peace to rise to the occasion in the Teachers College game must be mentioned. Time will only tell how Coach Lacey ' s cohorts will shape up for the 1938 season. Absence of Burl Poe, hefty tackle; Jesse Boatman, scrappy guard; and Captain Taylor, backfield ace, will be keenly felt. These boys have fought a good fight and given their all, but students will look forward with a great deal of anticipation to the team of next year. So . . . here ' s a toast to you gridiron warriors of ' 37 with hopes for a successful 1938 season. .ICE ackle Peace Halfback Blackwell Halfback GIRLS BASKET-BALL When the girls wound up their basket-ball season with a win over Boone, statistics showed a record that would be envied by any school. Although not swamping every opponent by overwhelming decisions, the girls displayed a brand of sportsmanship and fair play that is a credit to Milligan. Starting with a wealth of new material, the Buffalettes were pre-season favorites over all opposition, but due to inexperience and a lack of veteran material, the Lacy coached team dropped two close games to Hiwassee College and one to L. M. U. Prospects for the on-coming season are unpredictable. The loss of Misses Orr and Cox, by graduation, will be keenly felt but with the return of Millsaps, Fritts, Jones, Jenkins, and Smith, and the general improvement shown by all, the Buffalettes will again be the strong team it has been in the past. » 48 « RECORD Date M.

Starting the season with startling wins over the Norton Kiwanians and Emory and Henry, the Buffaloes sounded their bid for conference honors. But just as unexpected and startling, came two severe setbacks. The L. M. U. Railsplitters made history by trouncing the Eylermen in two consecutive contests. » 51 « BOY ' S Conference 1 9 COOPER FA I R. HOWINGTON Both of these losses served as springboards to greater heights and on January 29, the Buffs started a Conference drive unparalleled in Milligan Athletic history. Using Tusculum as a starter, the new champions swept through all opposition, and on March the third, their position as the oustanding team in the circuit was undisputable. Perhaps the Eyler coached team of ' 37 and ' 38 will not be ranked with teams of yore in ability and records but certainly no team, past or present, has demonstrated such excellent teamwork and such confident coolness under pressure. Knowing that a single loss meant complete dissolu- tion of pre-season hopes and aspirations, Milligan displayed a brand of sportsmanship and per- severance that won for them the admiration of the fortunate who witnessed their performances. » 52 basket-ball Champions 3 8 J. SWAN AY G. SWAN AY KEELING Any predictions for the forthcoming season would not be in order but graduation losses being none and every man returning, the Buffs should give a good account of themselves on any occasion. So— Lift your steins and drink to team and coach who have fought a good fight and given their best and in this instance their best was good enough. 53 « CONFERENCE CHAMPS Spring Sports » 54 9 zl FEATURES MARY HELEN BANNER May Queen » 57 « JACK WILLIS May King BERNIE WEBB Most Athletic Boy BLANCH MILLSAPS Most Popular PAULINE ORR Most Athletic 58 JUNE COX Most Versatile TREVOR McLEAN Most Popular EDWARD VOGEL Most Versatile 59 « S ' ' rtS » 60 « PATRONIZE OUR 3 0111 O ADVERTISERS Milligan College H.
