Milligan College counts herself extremely fortunate in securing Charles E. Burns as president. For several years Mr. Burns has served Milligan College in the capacity of teacher and pastor. In addition to his experience at Milligan, Mr. Burns served on the staff of Bob Jones College. He is a man of stern Christian character, unswerving loyalty to any cause which he sincerely believes to be in accord with Christian principles. He is a man of courage, vision, and his contribution to the education and religious fields are positive proof of his leadership, executive and administrative ability. Mr. Burns received his A. B. degree from Hiram College, and M. A. from University of Chicago. This year has been one of unparalleled success for Milligan College, and both administration and student body are confident of greater achievement under this new leader, Mr. Charles E. Burns, whose very life embodies the principles upon which Milligan College is founded. Page 19 The Faculty Oakie Angle, B. S., A. M. Associate Professor of Education Kathleen Adams Bowman, A. B., A.

" The Stampede " attempts at all times to foster the aims and ideals of Milligan and the student body, and to present the activities of the college as well as furnish much entertainment through the column entitled " Buffalo He(a)rd, " in which all the " scandal " is aired. We are proud of the work that has been done this ye ar and predict even greater activity by Milligan " journalists " in the future.

Page 54 THE MILLIGAN COLLEGE PRESS The Milligctn College Press was made possible through the generosity of Mr. E. W. Palmer of Kingsport, and is under the direction of Mr. Archie Grey. In addition to serving the college in printing and book-binding, it affords the students an opportunity for valuable vocational training. The college is justly proud of the Press and the splendid work which it is doing. Page 55 ALPHI PSI OMEGA This organization, Milligan ' s only national honorary fraternity, has grown from a very small beginning to it ' s present dynamic and ever increasing state. Under the direction of Miss Childs, faculty director, much work has been done. The members are obtaining valuable training in play directing and costume designing. In addition several major productions have been staged. For this group, we predict even greater achievement in the future. OFFICERS Jean Mitchell President Vince Tate Vice-President Walter Dorricott Secretary-Treasurer THE MILLIGAN COLLEGE PLAYERS The Milligan College players is an organization whose aim is to create interest in dramatics. This organization serves as the training corps for those who later will star in the productions of the Alpha Psi Omega. Here those who aspire to become accomplished actors on the campus are given every en- couragement, and when sufficient progress has been made the student is given membership in the national fraternity, Alpha Psi Omega. The Milligan College Players is an important organization on the campus, and much credit should go to Miss Floyd Childs, faculty adviser, who has worked diligently to bring this group to its present state. OFFICERS David Trotter President Walter Dorricott Vice-President Violet May Secretary Emma Good Treasurer Page 56 Page 57 THE M CLUB The boys ' M Club of Milligan College is composed of young men who have won the Milligan monogram for athletic ability in one or more sports. These letters are given to those participating in football, basket-ball, baseball, track or tennis. The cheer leaders and team managers are also given letters. The primary purpose of this organization is to perpetuate the ideals upon which all Milligan athletics are based, namely, good sportsmanship, both on the field of activity and upon the battle field of life; the promotion of individual friendships, and the the whole-hearted support of all worthy causes that may come to the attention of the members. An outstanding event on the Milligan social calendar is the annual Spring banquet sponsored by the M Club. This outstanding organization is one that all Milligan is justly proud of, and the progressive attitude shown by all members is a manifestation of its worth to Milligan College.

Fred Holly, who is one of our own, having graduated from Milligan in the class of ' 37. This discussion group was organized for those who are interested in any phase of Social Science, and for those who desire some medium of expression on current events and economic trends. At each meeting an attempt is made to furnish something of special interest to the group. One meeting each month is given to student discussion, the other, an outstanding professional man discusses problems related to his particular field. The work done by this dynamic organization this year deserves much credit, and to Professor Holly, the student body and administration are very grateful for his splendid work and cooperation which have made this work a success. We believe with one year of valuable experience, the club will achieve greater accomplishment next year.

THE VOLUNTEER BAND The Volunteer Band is composed of students who are interested in Christian service. Each Monday evening a meeting is held in the Prayer Room, which furnishes opportunity for a quiet devotion. The purpose of the Volunteer Band is to raise the spiritual outlook of the stu- dents and to give a deeper fellowship in Christ. Probably the idea is best ex- pressed in the prayer which is sung at the end of each meeting. " 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 out of my heart, Shine out of my heart, Lord Jesus. Shine out today, shine Out always, Shine out of my heart, Lord Jesus " . First Semester David Trotter President Kay Sluder Vice-President Kitty Allen Secretary-Treasurer Second Semester Edna Earle Heaton President Sally Mae Bledsoe _ -Vice-President Anna Margaret Guinn Secretary- Treasurer Page 60 PRE-MEDICAL CLUB The Pre-Medical Club is composed of students who plan to study medi- cine in the future, or who have an in- terest in the field of medicine. Many outstanding men give in- spirational lectures to the young men and lead group discussions on mat- ters related to medicine. Fraternally, the Pre-Medical Club acts as a force which binds those of similar interest in their search for truth, enabling them to keep in sight that coveted gleam that leads them on. Each Spring this club has as its major social feature a banquet, at which the future " Medicoes " ex- change their professional air of seri- ousness to one of frivolity. OFFICERS First Semester Vince Tate President Fred Dellinger Vice-President John Hall Secretary Second Semester Donald Qualls President Fred Dellinger Vice-President W. T. Mathes Secretary Page 61 HOME ECONOMICS CLUB The Home Economics Club of Milligan College is comprised of girls enrolled in any of the home economics classes. This group gives various programs which are in accordance with the ideals and principles of the club. Practical home economics in every day life is the primary aim of the group. Talks, demonstrations, special activities, and ad- dresses by outstanding speakers are presented at the meetings. The Home Economics Club affords students an opportunity to develop a spirit of service and cooperation, to gain a closer contact with the greater or- ganizations and activities of home economics in the state and nation and to keep in closer touch with current discoveries in the field of homemaking. Anna Lee Mills President Violet May Vice-President Nancey Smith Secretary Mary Nanette Mathes Treasurer GLEE CLUB The Glee Club is one of the largest organizations on the campus having a membership of about fifty boys and girls. Membership is open to all those who like to sing, who can do so reasonably well, and to those who have an interest in music. The activities of this group are varied, in addition to acting as the church choir, they render special numbers for the church services, participate in the annual May festival, present a Spring concert, and give general recitals. Perhaps their m ost outstanding performance of the year was the annual Christmas program, which consisted of the more familiar arias and choruses of the " Messiah " .

He said, " The team will not be as strong as it was last year, but it will give a good account of it- self in every game. " Was Lacy just being modest or fearful? Well, at any rate, we be- lieve him to be a man of action rath- er than words because he finished with the Smoky Mountain Champion- ship and an unbeaten and untied team. The Buffaloes began this most suc- cessful season by swamping the powerful Austin Peay eleven 12-0. The first Smoky Mountain game was tucked away at the expense of Cumberland University, who fell un- der the stampeding march of the Buffaloes 13-0. Milligan 12 Milligan 13 Milligan 6 Milligan 20 Milligan 19 Milligan 34 Milligan 20 Milligan 13 Milligan 42 Page 66 The most exciting game of the season came when Milligan de- feated Teachers College on their own field 6-0. Milligan was enabled to win by taking advantage of the only break of the game, a fumble which Blessing recovered. " SCOOP " MONAHAN Publicity Manager With three games in the win column, Milligan met and defeated the Maryville " Scotties " 20-6, at Roosevelt Stadium. This was also the " Home Coming " game. Next the victory mad Buffaloes roared to a 19-0 victory over the Carson-Newman Eagles, which gave them the undisputed Smoky crown. In a non-Conference game the Milligan warriors extracted the stinger from the Emory and Henry Wasps to the tune of 34-0. This game was in honor of the Milligan " Dads " , who proudly, watched their sons march to victory. Half swimming and half running, the Buffaloes overcame the stubborn Tusculum " Pion- eers " 20-0 in a sea of mud. The last home game of the season was with King on whom heavy odds were laid, how- ever, the Buffaloes emerged the victors in true champion style 13-6. The crowning year in Milligan football annals was completed with a spectacular win over Bluefield 42-21. Four Milligan men made the all-confer- ence team, Dagata, Spraker, Riggs, and Sho- walter. The latter two also made the " Little All-American. " COACH WEBB COACH SENTER Page 67 THE BUFFALOES " Pie " Garnor, Center " Shorty " Williams, Back Shelby Jett, Tackle " Jo Jo " Dellinger, Guard Ed.

Perhaps it was a belief in himself and the boys that prompted such predictions. In true fashion the Eylermen ended the season in number two spot, however, it is a characteristic of Milligan teams to be in the top position in basket-ball. Coach Eyler built his team around two veterans, " Bud Bud " Akard and " Jock " Hays, co- captains, whose example of sportsmanship, and fighting heart kept the team working as a unit, striving for one thing, to win ball games. No team in Milligan history has shown a greater will to win, or a greater spirit of co-operation. With the promotion of Pierce from the freshman squad to the varsity gave Milligan a man who did much to keep Milligan in the top ranks. We predict that Pierce will make Milligan an outstanding man in the future. The above, supported by McDowell and Cross enabled the Buffaloes to end what seemed in the beginning to be a hopeless season, into one of victory. Much credit for the success of the Buffaloes should go to Coach Eyler, who ranks among the nations number one coaches and basket-ball authorities, serving at the present time as president of the National Rules Committee.

Building his team around that versatile " Jock " Hays and " Bud Bud " Akard the boys gave a good account of themselves and when the smoke of battle had cleared away the Buffaloes held number two spot.

This year Milligan inherited from some of the best High Schools in the South an outstanding freshman squad, who showed to the basket-ball world they will be heard from later.

The team this year was built around cap- tain Hyder number one man on the squad and ably supported by the return of Mathes Painter, Qualls, and Greer. As usual " Doc ' s " boys gave a good account of themselves, winning by far the larger ma- jority of their games, and showing other op- ponents that Milligan has a truly great team. Page 74 GIRLS ' INTRAMURAL GROUP The Girls ' Intramural Group of Milligan College is sponsored for those girls who have an interest in athletics, and at the same time ful- fills the requirements for physical ed- ucation. " M " CLUB Due to the spirit in which the girls enter these activities, a spirit of wholesome competition is developed which takes the place of inter-collegi- ate competition. Any girl who wins a certain number of points during one season is awarded the M, which corresponds to the letter awarded the boys for participation in major sports. itt Page 75 aSSfflfflggtBSS .a £ o LIFE SAVING Life Saving at Milligan College is a feature that we are all proud of, be- cause Milligan is one of the few small schools to have each year an instructor from National Red Cross conduct a course. It is chiefly through the efforts of Dr. Eyler that we are able to maintain this annual instruction and all are grateful for his interest, and especially those who find summer employment as a result of Red Cross instruction.
