It is the staff ' s hope that these memories may be as vivid as music itself — at times soft and soothing, then deep and serious; sometimes light and playful, again romantic; ofttime full of praise to God, and always true and beautiful. an Mrs. H. J. Derthick is the beloved wife of our Presi- dent and in official position, his assistant and the Dean of Women. However, it is in neither of these roles that she has most endeared herself to us but rather in the role of friend and helper. We think of her as an adviser and comforter in times of trouble, as one with an unusual un- derstanding of youth, as our spiritual inspiration in the Sunday School Class and the Prayer Meeting, and always as an unselfish and untiring worker at whatever task falls into her hands. Because she shares in all our joys and sorrows and because she is personally interested in the all-round development of each member of the Milli- gan College family, she is our " second mother " and has made this campus our " second home " . It is because we realize in part the exceptional oppor- tunity we have in our daily contact with such a character that we, the Senior Class of 1939, wanting to express our heart-felt appreciation, dedicate this book to her. FISH POND and ADMINISTRATION BUILDING The spot to which one in- variably strolls upon leav- ing Hardin Hall. HARDIN HALL (Girls ' Dormitory) It is study hour and every- body is in her own room. ADMINISTRATION BUILDING Looking Through Arch The walk that spells the longest way ' round is the sweetest. PARDEE HALL (Boys ' Dormitory) and J. O. CHEEK ACTIVITY BUILDING There ' s always plenty of life and activity in these two buildings. MIDDLE CAMPUS A delightful place for archery, or pitching ball, or just loafing. TENNIS COURTS and FACULTY COTTAGE Where love games are played both on the courts and on the side lines. BUFFALO CREEK When one wants to get away from everybody, there ' s no better place than the banks of old Buffalo to find peace and repose. ADMINISTRATION HENRY J. DERTHICK A. B., A. M.

May the same! spirit that has won him laurels in athletics take him over the hurdles of life. TORREY WOFFORD COPENHAVER, A. B. Johnson City, Tennessee At first acquaintance one is struck with Torrey ' s beautiful long black hair, radiant face, and invigorating pep. Her musical laugh is charming. Yet, in spite of such a good first impression, to know her is to like her more and more. WILLIAM ELLIS COX, B. S. Johnson City, Tennessee Cheerful, cooperative, a good man to have around. His willingness to do his part is shown in his efficiency as circulation manager of the " Stampede " . WILLIE BLANCHE CRAWFORD, Chucky, Tennessee A. B. ' « To know her is to like her. Blanche is " Queen of the Chinese checker board " and is ever ready to lend assistance to anyone in need, meeting all adversities with an unfailing sense of humor. RUDOLPH AMBROSE DRALLE, B. S. Sewaren, New Jersey " Rudy " , the silver tongued orator whose only wish is for someone to give him a million beautiful girls — one at a time — is nevertheless a number one in his chemistry and a hard worker. CHARLES FREDERICK DUGGINS, A. B. Greeneville, Tennessee " Dug " is never found shirking; he always assumes his share of responsibility. His winning personality makes him a congenial fellow. First in classroom and first on the gridiron, but destined to be a bachelor. Page 14 THE 1939 CLASS OF 1939 ESTELLE CORNELIA ELLIOTT, A. B. DUNGANNON, VIRGINIA Here ' s to " The Maid with the Flaxen Hair " ! She is not a " Comedy of Errors " , nor a " Midsummer Night ' s Dream " , but take it " As You Like It " , she ' s just what she seems. We beUeve she ' ll be an apt drama critic. CLARENCE EDGAR F AIR, B. S. Elizabethton, Tennessee Tall, talented — but not timid — that ' s a tiny descrip- tion of our " Feeder " Fair. He is outstanding in basket- ball and one of Milligan ' s most popular boys. f % JOHN NEWTON FUGATE, B. S. Tazewell, Tennessee John is known as the boy who always lends a friend- ly helping hand. His gentleman-like qualities, his un- derstanding nature, and his appreciation of the fine things of life ins for him a warm place with all. He is worthy of the biggest responsibilities. LANORA MARIE GEISSLER, A. B. Lawrenceburg, Tennessee Because " Jackie " is one of Milligan ' s most efficient, trustworthy, and beloved daughters, she is the most outstanding student on the campus. She is interested in everything — and she is a true " German " at heart. PHILLIPS HOWARD HAMLIN, B. S. Oneida, Tennessee " I breathed a song into the air, It fell to earth, I know not where. " Such is the optimistic philosophy of our beloved " Ham " as he does good in unexpected ways. An impromptu genius at the piano, he has stirred many souls by his merry melodies. OLIVE MYRTA HINDERER, A. B. Johnson City, Tennessee To know Olive is to appreciate her -a faithful worker — and happiest when helping other people. One who can see the brighter side of the picture and is always willing to take time out for fun. 1 BUFFALO Page 15 THE SENIOR HOWARD CHANDLER JOHNSON, B. S. Humboldt, Tennessee Howard is a good student, a patient lab. instructor, an ardent lover and a sensitive soul who will have perfect bed-side manners. Here ' s to his success as a physician. JAMES R. LAWS, A. B. Elizabethton, Tennessee " Bumble Bee " Laws — co-captain on the football team. " A bee in the bonnet of the opposition " . Destined to go far in this world. JAMES TREVOR McLEAN, B. S. Alamo, Tennessee Handsome, clean-cut, and friendly — these are three of McLean ' s good points. As an undisputed " Shakes- peare " of the basket-ball court he has done an excel- lent job. D. A. MULLINS, B. S. Jenkins, Kentucky " A kind and gentle heart he has. To comfort friends and foes — " . This is a quality that has given D. A. a warm spot in the heart of every Milliganite. KENNETH NOEL, B. S. Greeneville, Tennessee Always willing to let his own work go and help someone else. A good football player and cooperative, Noel has a helpful word for all. MYRA LEE OLIVER, A. B. PiNEY Flats, Tennessee A good student who sees only the bright side of things, and has a complimentary word for everybody. Page 16 THE 1939 CLASS OF 1939 EDWARD AGEE OWENS, B. S. Dunbar, Virginia Eddie is well-known for his winning personality and charming smile. His manners are perfect and by his contributions at the piano, he has brightened the Conference hour. RAYMOND PERKINS, B. S. RocKHOLD, Kentucky " Perk ' s " winning smile and pleasing disposition have ■won a place in the hearts of all. He is a stately May King, our star center in basket-ball, and an all-round good fellow. FLORENCE HOOD POTTER, A. B. New Albany, Mississippi A typical brunette and a typical Southerner, Flor- ence is, nevertheless, her own individual self. She works hard and accomplishes much but always has time for fun. She is faithful to her chosen career and nothing else matters. When the curtain goes up, " the play must go on " ! JACOB CARMACK RANGE, A. B. Johnson City, Tennessee Known far and " wide as " Cov rboy " , he is our cap- able co-captain of the football team. His unfailing good humor is his greatest asset. EARL RITCHIE, B. S. Elizabethton, Tennessee " Our most popular boy " and a true man is he, a " witty one and the official alarm clock of third floor of Pardee Hall. He is known far and wide for his popular rendition of songs. FRANCIS (HENDRIX) SANDERS, B. S. PiNEY Flats, Tennessee Francis is quiet and hard-working. " Daughter is she in her mother ' s house. But mistress in her own " . " Squirrel " showed good judgment when he cap- tured this home economics major before she could get out into another field of home economics. BUFFALO Page 17 THE SENIOR VERA VELMA SMITH, B. S. Chattanooga, Tennessee Miss V. Velma Smith, R. N., is always busy. Capa- ble, kind, thoughtful, firm but understanding, she sin- cerely carries out her Florence Nightingale pledge, " With loyalty " will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care " . MARGUERITE STEELE, B. S. RiCHLANDS, Virginia " Grete " , trim and cute, perfectly wears the clothes that she perfectly makes. Independent and unconcern- ed, she keeps our handsome Romeos guessing. ■■■ ' iw ' ' GEORGE WILLET SWANAY, A. B. Elizabethton, Tennessee George is always friendly and cheerful. He is a good basket-ball player too. His chief assets are a winning smile and an effervescent personality. JOSEPH RUSSELL SWANAY, A. B. Elizabethton Tennessee Joe is a duplicate of George in appearance and personality, a little quieter perhaps, but just as good natured. He is an outstanding basket-ball player. RUSH ROY TAYLOR, B. S. Elizabethton, Tennessee Rush ' s cheerfulness and politeness have made him a favorite at Milligan. No task becomes so difficult that Rush can ' t meet it with a grin. LEE VARNELL, A. B. Adamsville, Tennessee Varnell, our mainstay on the " All Conference Basket- ball Team " , our most versatile boy, and a lover of both sweets and the fairer sex — " Foots " , that is all. Page 18 THE 1939 CLASS OF 1939 ELEANOR VOGEL, A. B. Erwin, Tennessee Magnetism is inherent in her nature, and finds its expression in what may be termed a gracious and re- fined personality. " She softly speaks and sweetly smiles. " THOMAS EDWIN WAGONER, B. S. Roan Mountain, Tennessee A great lover of natu re — birds, flowers, rhododen- dron — " Waggle " finds interest in the field of Biology. BEN WHINREY. B. S. Fall Branch, Tennessee Good natured in spite of his chronic pessimism, he ■will long be remembered as " the best football manager in captivity " . His cooperative spirit is his greatest asset. WILLIAM A. WHITE, Jr., A. B. MiLLiGAN College, Tennessee Behold our " Ladies Man " a Nelson Eddy, too. -a charming Romeo, and JAMES N. WHITNEY, A. B. Johnson City, Tennessee James is the fun-loving type on the surface, but underneath is that guality of clear-headedness which will carry him far. He is w ell eguipped by nature for his chosen field of economics and business. JOHN WALTER WHITT, B. S. Appalachia, Virginia " There in the odorous laboratory, skilled to rule. Dr. Whit taught his little school " , and did an efficient job of it, too. BUFFALO Page 19 THE SENIORS OF 1939 Had you mingled in the rush of registration day in the fall of 1935, you would have un- doubtedly been impressed with the questioning faces roaming the classic halls of our Alma Mater and with the characteristic glow of " bringing dare perfessor an apple " optimism eman- ating from every feature. Soon, however, all neophytic traces were obliterated as these roving bodies settled in their course of revolving about the illustrious son, " Prexy " McLean, and in an effort to earn their scholastic bread. It wasn ' t long until all had been duly initi- ated into roommate adjustments, bull sessions, Saturday night feasts. Hours of cramming for exams, good old school spirit, homesickness, conference, new friendships, and everything that makes college liife such a round of laughter and tears, joys and sadnesses, victories and defeats. The favorite story told on this closs as Freshmen came about as a result of hav- ing their pictures made for the annual. At that time, the Freshmen were not pictured indi- vidually but in two groups, boys and girls. When the proof of the boys ' picture was submit- ted it was discovered that it wouldn ' t do at all. Consequently a special time was set for a retake and the boys given very definite instructions on how to dress for it, the main point be- ing that overalls were by no means suitable. The second picture showed a company of " well groomed gentlemen " in place of a gang of " rowdy guys " . By the summer of ' 36 " It ' s De Lovely " was acclaimed this Milligan class ' theme song. A little too enthusiatically they entered the sophomoric (v ise fool) stage and suffered an attack of " Unsettledness " that had their minds imitating the then popular " The Music Goes Aground and Around " — then through the " Gone with the Wind " days. Those who didn ' t " leave with the breeze " closed a hectic but character-building sophomore year under the leadership of Eddie Owens as president and as Juniors began to assume the " Earmarks " of upperclassman dignity. It was near the close of this year that the class began to do things as a class in helping get the Seniors off in good order. About two weeks before school was out they entertained them with a banquet at the Governor Taylor Hotel in Elizabethton. They served as ushers and as decorators on Baccalaureate Sunday and Commencement Monday. This time Raymond Perkins presided over the class. At last the fourth year dawned. Now the girls no longer sat on the floor at Prayer Meeting nor observed many of the numerous study hour and off campus regulations. The boys were invited to make themselves at home in the parlors of Hardin Hall at times other than, as well as, 6:45 to 7:15. Fun making began early with President Derthick taking the boys out to dinner and Mrs. Derthick entertaining the girls at theater parties. On Monday evening, February 13, the whole class along with the faculty went to tea at the Home Eco- nomics cottage. Then with the closing of the year there was a round of parties, banquets, and other get-togethers. The class sponsored the two student publications, " The Stampede " and The Buffalo. The Senior girls took charge of arrangements for the singing of carols the last midnight before going home for the Christmas holidays, they sponsored the annual party given by all the girls for the boys, and they led in the closing prayer meeting of the year. The class furnished the royal couple for the May court. Rings, caps and gowns, and invita- tions began to smack of graduation. Yes, and on Monday, May 29, the Seniors one by one before the assembly of their parents, teachers, fellow students, and interested friends re- ceived their diplomas, had the tassels on their caps moved from the right to the left, and stepped off the stage, not as Milligan College students, but as Milligan College alumni. It was over. It had all been so wonderful. There was a pang of regret at leaving but a glow of happiness at attaining a desired goal. And thus in the hustle and bustle of fare- wells, the life of the undergraduate ended and the student with his diploma left the campus reminiscing on the happinesses of the past four years and resolving in all the years to come to make his life count, to be worthy of the opportunities Milligan had given him.

The Campus Cruisers of summer ' 38. fmamm V " ••■ ' fW L tacLn L7 a. tlo-n i U B Membership in the Boys ' " M " Club is extended to those young men of athletic ability who have worthily participated in one of the major sports sponsored by Milligan College. These sports are football, basket-ball, baseball, track, and tennis. Managers of these sports are invited into the club and the cheer-leaders are eligible for membership. Through this club a voice is given to young men in athletics to express their interests, plans, and thoughts in a unified group. The purpose and objective of the Boys ' " M " Club is to build a mutual feeling of cooperation with all organizations of the college; to further the true spirit and essence of sports- manship in all athletic activities; to foster fellowship and closer friendship among all students, both at home and with other col- leges; to cherish and covet the " M " and to abide by and uphold the interests and aspirations of the institution which the letter symbolizes. The " M " Club is one of the largest and strongest organizations on the campus. One of the highlights of the club ' s activities is the annual banquet held each spring toward which all members look with great anticipation.

BOYS ' Page 34 and GIRLS OFFICERS Blanche Millsaps President Mary Elizabeth McMillin Vice-President Nera Kennedy Secretary-Treasurer Gertrude Garrison Reporter Membership in the Girls ' " M " Club is extended to those young women of athletic ability who have participated in basket-ball and made the varsity squad by playing in a majority of the games for one season. Also, a girl may become a member by being a cheer-leader for one year, by being manager of girls ' basket-ball for one season, or by the point system in entering both literary and athletic activities. The first and l ast year a girl earns a letter, she is given a sweater with the " M " . If she earns a letter during the years between, she is given only an " M " for those years. This organization, in all it undertakes, strives to promote gocd feeling and good fellow- ship, and in this way the Girls ' " M " Club is recognized as an excellent example of Milligah ' s true womanhood. Page 35 ALPHA PSI OMEGA Florence Potter Director Abraham Gabriele Sub-Director EsTELLE Elliott Secretary-Treasurer Dorothy Kester Faculty Director The Eta Lambda cast of Alpha Psi Omega, national honorary dramatic fraternity to which membership is elected because of meritorious participation in college dramatics, enjoyed the exclusive membership of the above four charter members for the first session of the school year. Following the presentation of the second major production, Sidney Howard ' s " The Late Christopher Bean " , ten candidates were qualified for the much desired membership. Satur- day night, December 10, nine of the ten eligible candidates were admitted to the cast in an impressive formal ceremony in the Colonial Hotel. The newly admitted members were then guests of the charter members at an attractively arranged banquet, followed by an informal initiation. In November the cast was especially complimented by a visit from Mrs. Irene Childrey Hoch, Grand Director of Delta Psi Omega, the Junior College branch of Alpha Psi Omega. Mrs. Hoch, world traveler and lecturer, conducted several informal discussions while en the campus. Her dynamic personality, her unusual experiences, and keen interest in drama of all countries makes her a distinguished figure. The cast is deeply appreciative of Mrs. Hoch ' s instructive visit. During the year the cast sponsored two major productions: the first, two contrasting one- act plays, " The Romancers " by Edmund Rostand and " The Trysting Place " by Booth Tar- kington; the second, " The Green Vine " 7 a three-act play in manuscript form, by Nan Bagby Stevens. Presented in an experimental form, the prompt book was submitted to the author. In connection with the one-act plays, the cast sponsored a poster contest. Winners of the contest were given tickets to the Christmas play. A highlight of the cast ' s projects for the year is the keeping of a " Green Book " which will contain clippings, programs, etc. The " Green Book " will be kept in the local " green room " as a permanent record of the cast ' s activities. Page 36 DRAMATIC CLUB Nera Kennedy President W. D. Owens Vice-President Rose Tilford Secretary Mary Louisa Johnston : Treasurer The school year 1938-1939 was one of innovations for the Milligan College Dramatic Club. Beginning with complete separation from the Senior dramatic organization, the Dra- matic Club elected separate officers and formed a new constitution. The old system of try- outs in one-act plays was changed to individual tryouts, through readings and pantomimes, at the beginning of each semester. One of the most important innovations was the recital in directing, in which Florence Potter and Estelle Elliott presented a number of scenes representative of the more fruitful per- iods of dramatic writing. In addition, the signed column " Drama Notes at Milligan " , by Miss Elliott, appeared reg- ularly in the Johnson City Press Chronicle and gave an informal review of drama at the college. Throughout the year the Dramatic Club sponsored a number of one-act plays and pro- vided entertainment for various organizations in the nearby cities through the presentation of them. Continuing a practice of long standing, the club sponsored the production of two major plays, one at Christmas and the other at Commencement time. In accordance with the cus- tom of recent years, the club exchanged plays with some of the neighboring colleges. The Milligan exchange play this year was Sidney Howard ' s " The Late Christopher Bean " . Two Senior Speech Recitals, in which Miss Elliott gave a series of book reviews of her own composition and Miss Potter a varied program of plays, essays, and lyrics, completed a dramatic season of unusual variety and interest.

The object of " The Stampede " is not only to give news to its readers, but to give students practical training both in journalism and in printing. Page 39 GLEE CLUB With a membership of about sixty young men and women, the Glee Club is one of the largest organizations on the campus. Anyone who is interested in music, likes to sing, and can do so reasonably well, is eligible to membership in the club. The activities of the group include participation in the Spring Music Festival at East Ten- nessee State Teachers College, participation in the general musical recitals, the presentation of a spring concert, participation in the annual May Festival, acting in the capacity of the Church Choir, and giving occasional special numbers for the Church services. This year the Christmas cantata was " The Child Jesus " by Clokui. This was preceded by a program of scripture through song including " He Shall Feed His Flock " , " Come Unto Him " , and " Rejoice Greatly " from Handel ' s " Messiah " . The cantata itself was composed of solo numbers and choruses for men ' s, women ' s and mixed voices. In the Christmas recital given by the music department of the school, the Glee Club sang a four-part arrangement of " Annie Laurie " and " If My Songs Had Wings Provided " by Hahn. The Freshmen and Junior trios also sang. Then the Spring Concert was divided into three parts, the first including six numbers from the entire Glee Club, the second a cantata, " Spring Cometh " by Korentz sung by the girls ' chorus; and the last a one-act operetta by the men ' s group.

G. Long Coach More interest was shown in debating this year than for several previous years. The girls ' team was not active but the boys took part in more events than usual. They not only de- bated the subject, " Resolved: that the United States government shall cease using public funds (including credit) for the purpose of stimulating business " , but also entered contests in after-dinner speaking, oratory, and extemporaneous speaking. On Saturday, January 28, the boys scored five wins against three defeats at the Smoky Mountain Conference meet at Carson-Newman in which eleven schools with a total of twenty- six teams participated. This year Milligan sent teams to the Grand Eastern Tournament known as the Strawberry Leaf Tournament. It met at Winthrop College at Rock Hill, South Carolina, on April 13, 14, and 15. This tournament has representatives from approximately one hundred colleges east of the Mississippi River. Plans are being made for an even better year next year when a veteran team will be re- turning. Page 41 HOME ECONOMICS CLUB OFFICERS Mary Louisa Johnston . President Carsie Hyder Vice-President Myrtle Willis Secretary Pauline New Treasurer Violet May Reporter Kathleen Brown Sponsor The Home Economics Club of Milligan College is an active organization whose members consist of girls enrolled in any of the home economics classes. Programs presented at the meetings of the club consist of talks, demonstrations, special ac- tivities, and addresses by outside speakers. In accordance with the principles and ideals of the club, all programs tend to give particular attention to home economics in every-day life. Through the efforts of the Home Econom.ics Club, students have an opportunity to develop a spirit of service and cooperation, to gain a closer contact with the greater organizations and activities of home economics in the state and nation, and to keep in touch with current dis- coveries in the world of domestic science. 1 i ™, ft«ii a»it A... -Cj-iai :«■■:«% i Page 42 THE PRE-MEDICAL CLUB OFFICERS First Semester Second Semester Howard C.

Thompson, Sponsors During the school year of 1938-39, the Pre-Medical Club has taken very definite steps toward raising its scholastic and fraternal standards. An average of C must be maintained by each member, thus encouraging excellence in pre-medical work by furnishing a goal toward which the student may strive during his pre-medical career. Fraternally, the Pre- Medical Club acts as a force in binding together similarly interested students and crystalliz- ing any movement for the good of the pre-medical student in his search for truth. As seekers of the truth of science, members of the club appreciate the ideals, the principles, and the mysteries associated with medical science, and are looking forward to the day when they can do their share in revealing other truths of life.

S J. Walter Carpenter Faculty Adviser J. Walter Carpenter The Volunteer Band is a permanent organization for the development of the spiritual qualities of those fundamen- tally interested in the spread of God ' s word through personal service, whether that be as minister, missionary, or church layman. Each Monday night its members gather in the Prayer Room for a quiet hour of devotion where they pray and sing and talk together in Christian fellowship. The members are further encouraged to extend these ser- vices into private daily devotions and for this purpose they see to the distribution over the campus of the daily devotion booklet, " The Upper Room " . The Band programs are planned with the end in view not only of present help but also of direction in the planning of programs for the home church. During this year such subjects as " Prayer " , " Praise " , " Worship " , " The Nature of God " , " Science and Religion " , and " God as seen through Music, Art, and Literature " have been considered. An occasional picture interpretation program adds variety to the meetings. Guest speakers this year include Miss Mary McCauley of Knoxville, Mrs. Paul Carpenter of Louisville, and Miss Mildred Welshimer of Cincinnati. During the summer of ' 38 five delegates of the organization spent a week near Asheville, North Carolina, at Ben Lippen, the summer conference grounds of Columbia Bible College. Each meeting is closed with a prayer chorus which probably best expresses the common thought of the group: " Come into my heart. Come into my heart, Come into my heart. Lord Jesus. Come in today, Come in to stay, Come into my heart. Lord Jesus. " Shine out of my heart, Shine our of my heart. Shine out of my heart. Lord Jesus. Shine out today. Shine out always. Shine out of my heart. Lord Jesus.

A determined band of about forty candidates were on hand and went to work with a will on the task of building and polishing a balanced and smooth-run- ning football machine. There was a sizeable nucleus of veterans on the squad and throughout the season as injuries took their toll, new men stepped into the breach and did their tasks courageously and well. Several pros- pects were uncovered under the fire of the grueling campaign, who show great promise of future ability and usefulness. Throughout the tough slate of ten games the Buffs acquitted themselves honorably, although such key men as Roberts, Captain Laws and others were lost for a portion of the season through injuries. The Milligan defense was iiie equal of any in the Conference but the offense was spotty and incon- sistent although at times showing brilliantly. PIKE Back G. ARNOLD Guard ARCHER End EASTERLING Back NOEL Tackle ■■s- Ss RICE Tackle HOWINGTON Back Mcdowell Back DUGGINS Guard BRIGHT Tackle Under the able leadership of Captains Laws and Range, the Buffaloes finished the season with a fairly good record, having won five, lost three and tied two games. The outstanding games of the season were the astonishing defeat of Guilford College by the score of 39-7, and the bitterly contested ties with King and Carson-Newman. In the line the work of Laws, center; Range and Duggins, guards; and Rice, tackle, was outstanding both defensively and offensively while the stellar play of McClellan at end was un- surpassed in the Conference. McClellan received the honor of being named on the official All-Conference team. In the back- field, the plunging and generalship of Howington, the blocking and defensive work of Easterling, the running of Webb, and the all-around play and competitive spirit of Pike combined to help make Milligan a feared, even if not invincible, grid aggregation.

They have DAVIS Tackle RIGGS Guard fought the good fight and shall live forever in the Valhalla of our memories. So let us salute the warriors of ' 38 and turn our eyes to the future in high hopes of a suc- cessful 1939 season. Date M. C. Opp. COACH LACEY Sept. 17_ Sept. 23 _ Oct. Oct. Oct. Oct. Oct. Nov. Nov.

However, they managed to stove off the seemingly inevitable and emerged as champions of the Smoky loop for the second consecutive year with a conference es rs 1 f Page 51 Lee Varnell Eernie Webb record of ten wins and two losses. At their peak, this Buffalo machine was observed by many critics to have been one of the greatest aggregations ever assembled by Coach Eyler during his regime as tutor of champions at Milligan. The team reached impressive heights in the annual fray at Carson-Newman by adminis- tering the worst defeat ever handed the Eagles on their home court. Such exploits as the unique ball handling of the Swanay twins, the fighting spirit of " Feeder " Fair, the leadership of Captain McLean, the tower- ing leaps of the lanky Perkins, and the consistent goal tossing Left to Right: George Swanay Johnce howington Joe Swanay Steve Shelton " Feeder " Fair Page 52 »«p ability of " Iron Man " Lee Varnell brought many thrillinq moments to Buff supporters. Var- nell compiled what is believed to be an all time record by playing in every half of every Buffalo varsity game for four consecutive years and being chosen as an all conference per- former each year. All the above mentioned men are Seniors and, considering this element, it v rould seem that prospects for next year are not overly bright. But the return of such stellar performers as Clyde Cooper, Bernie Webb, " Rough-house " Howington, Bill Blackwell, and Steve Shelton plus the advent of such Freshmen stars as " Jocko " Hayes, Charles Bragg, Max Jarrett, Ed Payne, Pete Apcstolou, Neil McDov ell, Raymond Cure, Ted Alexander, and Charles Akard, together with the recognized ability of Coach Eyler to develop talent lends encouragement to followers of the Herd for another successful season next year. Hats off to these sporting champions and may they always be champions in their various phases of endeavor!

And now for a brief summary of a few outstanding happenings that have not been pic- tured so far in this book. When school opened on Tuesday, September 6, one of the first improvements that everybody noticed was at Hardin Hall which had just had its first floor refinished with hardwood flooring. The students were not long in discovering that the school had also bought a new shiny black truck displaying a large orange buffalo on either side. The most noticeable campus improvement was the cleaning up and rearrangement of flowers on the lower campus. But the chapel was the place to which everybody rushed. For there was the pipe organ which was given last year by Mrs. George W. Keys in mem- ory of her husband and which had been installed during the summer. On Sunday after- noon, September 11, the organ was formally dedicated in a short service led by President Derthick, Dr. Eyler, Professor Burns, Dr. Rigell and Mr. Adam B. Bowman of Johnson City, and Mrs. Keys. The dedicatory service was followed by a concert with Mr. Billy Barnes of Knoxville at the organ. Professor Edward G. Lodter throughout the year has given program.s on this organ. But that was not the only big new thing. In time an old dressing room in the basement of the gymnasium was remodeled and converted into a press room most of whose equipment was received as a loan from Mr. E. W. Palmer, President of the Kingsport Press, Inc., Kings- port, Tennessee. Mr. Archie Gray, a Milligan alumnus, is in charge of this press and is assisted by students desiring such vocational training as this work affords. Their course of study includes type-setting, make-up, arrangement, press-work, bookbinding, and a study of type faces and papers. Lectures on the history of printing and the practical business of printing are given in this course by instructors furnished by the courtesy of Mr. Palmer from his staff. The College Press prints the student publication, " The Stampede " , the alumni paper, " The Buffalo Range " , the college catalog, programs, invitations, and stationery for the college. Later in the tall in Johnson City a new radio station, WJHL, began broadcasting. They soon made arrangements for a regular Milligan College hour on the air. The first of these programs was given on Sunday afternoon, December 18, and was followed by similar pro- grams each Sunday afternoon from 4:00 until 4:30 o ' clock. These include mainly organ music by Professor Lodter supplemented by short talks and vocal and instrumental music. Throughout the year other broadcasts were made of special programs and of basket-ball games. ' Something new was a system of private conferences with off campus people who are specialists in youth problems. This was begun when Miss Elizabeth Osborne, lecturer on the development of charm and personality, conducted a series of lessons on " The Impression You Make " and was continued when Miss Mildred Welshimer, who is connected with the Standard Publishing Company, came to help with spiritual development. From April 3 to 8 Mr. Fysal, swimming instructor from the National Red Cross, gave a course in life-saving followed by examinations authorizing those who passed either as senior life-savers or Red Cross examiners. Early in the second semester a Geiinan club named " Der Deutsche Verein " was organ- ized with Lanora Geissler as president; Dorothy Geissler, vice-president; Gertrude Garrison, secretary-treasurer; and Glenn Williams, chairman of program committee. The main ob- jective of the club is to familiarize the students of the German language with German cus- toms and in so doing to give them a better speaking and reading knowledge of the lan- guage. The programs at the monthly meetings included speeches in German, singing of Ger- man folk songs, and studies of German customs, music, and art. The alumni organization begun in 1937 continued its development. There are eighty-four subscribers to the paper, " The Buffalo Range " . Seventy attended the banquet at the Frank- lin Club on November 1 and one hundred and fifty attended the Christmas party given by Mrs. Derthick. The last banquet was on May 27. Lew Taylor of Elizabethton is president of this organization and J. G. Long of Milligan College is secretary. The second week in March was devoted to the annual revival. This year the visiting evangelist was J. Walter Carpenter, Jr., of Louisville, an alumnus of Milligan College.
