Cochrane With affection and respect we dedicate this issue of the Buffalo to Profes- sor A. F. Cochrane. Through the years his name has ever been associated with the highest of Milligan ideals and activities until he has become a living tradition. De- votion to his work, interest in the individual, and his unquestioned sincerity have marked his years at the college. Many of us will remember him as the " Daddy " at Pardee Hall. He was, for years, football coach, M Club sponsor, benevolent supervisor of the Power House, leader of Wednesday prayer meetings at Pardee Hall, teacher of the girls ' Sunday School Class and has been for more than a quarter of a century, head of the Biology Department. l DOO Contents ADmimsTRATion FACULTY CLASSCS FGATURGS ACTIVITIES ATHLGTICS Some go to class Watching the world go by C 2 H, OH Chow Hounds At the " Union " Crook trees a possum in m e m o r i n m Adam B. Crouch The life of Adam B. Crouch, prominent business man of Johnson City, Tennessee, was characterized by three great loves — for his family, for the church and for Milligan College. Each in its place merited his deep concern and genuine affection, and to each he gave his guidance, counsel, and loyal service. For more than twenty years he served as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the College, courageously facing the difficult days of the depres- sion, steadfastly holding to the cherished dreams of the Christian college so undergirded and so prepared for the future that a constant flow of Christian leadership would be assured. As a fitting tribute to the faithful leadership which he gave to Milligan College, his family and friends have joined together in the establishing of the Adam B. Crouch Memorial Fund, the income of which will be used in training young men in the ministry of the Churches of Christ. May the spirit of his life continue through that leadership which shall here be trained. Message from the President I welcome this opportunity to bring greetings from the Administration to the friends of Milligan College through pages of the " Buffalo. " The producing of a college annual requires an enormous amount of energy and time and talent. The members of the Buffalo staff have worked untiringly to bring to you a cross sec- tion of college life in 1946-47. This book is filled with pictures and accounts of the various activities of this college year whieh will bring back many precious memories to the students and faculty of Milligan College. Above all, we want you to see a program of Christian Education at work on this campus, for it is, indeed, " The Hope of the World. " Some students have come to the college to be prepared for full-time Christian service as ministers, mis- sionaries, pastor ' s helpers or young people ' s workers. Others have come to be prepared as doctors, teachers, businessmen, coaches, lawyers and in the field of music and fine arts. All have the sacred privilege of being trained in an atmosphere that is distinctly Christian and taught by men and women who are followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. " Character Building, First of All " is the real goal of the total educational process of Milligan College. To that end, pray that we may be guided to accom- plish His will in this field of Christian Education. Sin cerely, STEVE LACEY, Vice-Pres.

" This year Coach Brown guided the Buffs to a successful finish in the toughest football season in years. Coach Brown is a quiet, soft-spoken man off the ath- letic field, but when he is putting his men through the grind he is a different man. Milligan College is indebted to Coach Brown for his ideals and influence on and off the athletic field. Noted for his mathematical accuracy in scouting Mil- ligan ' s opponents, Dean Wood has been largely respon- sible for the success of the fooball team. He masters his tasks with skill and confidence. We attribute praise to Dean Wood for the splendid job he has done in developing Milligan ' s powerful football team. To Assistant Coach Sid Rice we offer our praise and thanks for the fine work he has done during the past football season. Coach Rice has the ability to mingle " with football players, work with them with the idea of getting something done, and still keep the feeling of cooperation between himself and the boys out for practice. To Coach Rice goes credit for the splendid men ' s intramural program. COACH RAY BROWN LINE COACH STAR WOOD ASSISTANT COACH SID RICE ■ :■- . ■ -■. BUFFALOGS Oil TH€ GRIDIROH November 16 brought to a close an exceptionally successful season for Coach Ray Brown and his fighting Buffaloes. The season was capped by the Milligan Buffaloes tucking the Smoky Mountain Conference champion- ship under their belts for the second consecutive year; thereby being invited to the annual Burley Bowl game in Johnson City. September 21, the Buffaloes opened the season with a 20 to win over Emory and Henry. Emory and Henry had a scrapping outfit, but could not cope with its heavier opponents. The Buffaloes gained ground with ease. Holsclaw, Goddard and Miller led the offensive parade, while Harmon, Spraker and Stallard were outstanding on the defense for the Buffaloes. September 28, playing before a home crowd at Johnson City, the Milligan College Buffaloes met defeat at the hands of High Point College. The Buffaloes got off to a bad start and could not overcome the much heavier and stronger reserve forces of High Point. The final scole was 19 to 6. October 3, the next game on the schedule saw the Buffaloes traveling to Murfreecboro to tangle with Middle Tennessee State. On numerous occasions the Buffaloes threatened but the State squad was able to hold off the ag- gressive Milligan team. The score ended to 0. The game started the Buffaloes on the road to an injured and crippled season of football. October 12, before a Homecoming crowd at Elizabeth ton, the Buffaloes met the Tusculum College Pioneers. A cold and muddy field slowed both teams down, but the Buffaloes came out on top, 12 to 0. Short, consistent runs by Carrier, Goddard and Holsclaw kept the Buffaloes on the offense the major part of the game. Fine, Harmon and Caldwell were outstanding in stopping the Tusculum backs. October 18, the student body followed the football squad to Cullowhee, N. C, where the Buffaloes played West- ern Carolina Teachers. Both teams threatened numrous times, but Milligan eked out a 6 to victory. Rose and Goddard spelled bad luck for the Teachers, while Stallard, Harmon and Caldwell were effective in stopping the Teachers when needed.

C, against a powerful Guilford eleven, the Milligan College Buffaloes met their second and last defeat in the regular season. The highly favored Guilford team opened with the most devastating running attack the Buffaloes had faced. Milligan lost 19 to 6, but he Buffs were the first team to cross the opponents ' goal line this season. November 22, the traditional Milligan-Carson- Newman game was played at Kingsport. The Buffa- loes got off to a slow start but continually improved and the final score was 20 to 7 with Milligan on the long end. Showalter and Walker were consistently hitting the Baptist line and Holsclaw ' s passes were hitting the receivers. In the line, Elliott, Harmon, Caldwell and Spraker played a bang-up game. November 8, Coach Brown ' s gridsters squeezed out an unimpressive 12 to 7 win over the less pow- erful Tennessee Wesleyan Junior College. With 20 seconds to play, Holsclaw hit Goddard with the winning pass. Goddard was constantly bowling over the Wesleyan tacklers but was unable to cross the goal line. The power in the Buff line could not be stopped. November 16, for the first time since the begin- ning of the season the Buffaloes were at their full strength. The Milligan College Herd upset a highly favored Appalachian State Teachers football team 6 to 0. Holsclaw ' s pass to Stevens in the second period was sufficient to win. Pardue played his best ball game of the season. Stallard intercepted a pass to set up the touchdown play. Spraker, Starnes and Stallard led in bottling the visitors ' offense. November 28, the Milligan College Buffaloes ended the toughest schedule in years and proved them- selves to be the best college football team in this area by completing the season with six wins, two losses and one tie. This was convincing enough for them to receive and accept an invitation to play in the Burley Bowl classic Thanksgiving Day in Johnson City.. The Buffaloes met a Southeastern Louisiana College team that was rated six touch- downs over Milligan. The hard-driving Buffaloes, being at their best, almost upset the superior South- eastern Louisiana team. The game was highlighted by Goddard ' s 65-yard runback of a punt and in the fourth period Duard Walker streaked 80 yards on a pass interception. Stallard, Spraker and Pardue turned in their best games of their college careers. Although losing, little Milligan College amazed Louisiana College to a score of 21 to 13.

BUFFALOES Oil THG HRRDUJOOD The ' 47 edition of the basketball squad is a typical hard-fighting Milligan basketball team. All men play their positions well and wiLh the desire to win at all times. We emphasize this point because it is a typical characteristic of all Milligan athletes. Coach Brown has what is considered one of the best Milligan basketball teams in years and the future for the Buffaloe basketeers is very bright since there are no seniors on the squad and the boys have the initiative and spirit to have even greater cage teams in the future. This year the squad is led by a center, Captain Bob Elliott, a great player under the basket, and his ability to take the rebounds from the opposition has been a decided asset to the Buffaloes. Other players who are well known on the Milligan hardwood are Griz and Warren, two fast-breaking, sharp-shooting forwards and Shepherd and Stephens, a pair of smooth-working, deceptive guards. Walk er, Edwards, Williams, Matherly, and Fine have made good ac- count of themselves and have served notice to the opposition that they are hard to handle. The " B " team has provided many interesting preliminary games and should provide some excellent material for the varsity next year. First row: Walker, Griz, Stephens, Matherly, Warren, Bayless. Second row: Fine, Handley, Edwards, Taylor, Elliott. Third row: Humphreys, Gouge, Shepherd, Williams, McCurry.

With five lettermen returning it is anticipated that Milligan will have a stronger tennis team than last year, when they won four matches an dlost five under the leadership of Dr. Hugh Thompson. We are confident that our ' 47 team " will have a successful season. Milligan boasts of having one of the best college baseball teams in this section. The 1946 season was com- pleted with nine wins and one loss and this season the baseball team is expected to be up to par with last year ' s. Two players have been lost in graduation, but with the available material, their shoes should be ably filled when baseball once again takes its place on the athletic program. Track, a newly organized spring spot at Milligan, is taking its place along with the other spring sports. Last year Milligan competed in two meets and took both by substantial .-margins. Lettermen in track are as follows: Elliott, Crane, Holsclaw, A. Miller, Addison, J. Miller, Hasty, and Jimmy Rose. These men are returning this season and we look forward to a large schedule and a better organized track program this spring. ARCHER SMITH PRINTING COMPANY 103 3 N.
