FOREWORD This book is an honest attempt to portray Milligan College as it is today . . . it is an earnest effort to record, frankly, in word and in picture, the students, the life and the activities of this institution in the year 1947-48 . . . faithfully, without pretense or ostentation; accurately, without loss of perspective; inform- ally, because that is the order of the day, we, the seniors of Milligan College, present this book to you. It is v ith deepest sincerity and appreciation that we, the seniors of Milligan College, dedicate this volume of " The Buffalo " to our honored war dead . . . to those w ho worked, fought and died for those principals of democracy and freedom that make possible Christian Education in America. True to them, Milligan strives to inculate the virtures of a Christian Character in all who come to her by demonstrating and practicing the principals and ideals for which the College was established.

In Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter there is inspiration to be found in the scenes offered by a stroll along the Buffalo, or among the groves of trees, or just in looking at our stately buildings as they rise against the sky. The Lower Campus The Old Water Wheel PARDEE HALL Home of Milligan Men ' ■■ ' f i.- HARDIN HALL Home of Miiligan Women Hopwood Memorial Church Interior of Hopwood Memorial Church . CHURCH ITS INFLUENCE Our motto here at Milligan is " Christian Education, The Hope ol the World " , for it is our belief that by the daily living of a Christ- ian life we can all become better men and women, and thereby better citizens of our nation and of the world. Prof. Edward G. Lodter at the console of the Keys Memorial Organ " Sweet Hour of Prayer " POST OFFICE The connecting link between home and Milligan, the Post Office is undoubtedly the most popular spot on our campus. It means m_any things to many people, to some it is the hustle of a distant city, to some it is life on a peaceful farm, and to others it means dreams of the future. And of course, it has a special place in the hearts of the GIs. .«MS« ' THE CAMPUS STORE Famous for its " Spamburgers " the store rates tops as the social center of campus Ufe. Whether it is breakfast for a late riser k or a quiet " Coke " for two, a p package of notebook paper, or a bar of soap you should have gotten a week ago when you started using your roommate ' s, you can be sure that this is the place to obtain it.

Professor of Bi- ology these many years, he took over his present job this past fall. DEAN OF WOMEN MILDRED WELSHIMER New to Milligan this year, Miss Welshimer has already won our hearts with her pleasant smile and kind understanding. It is our hope that she, too, will become a permanent mem- ber of the " Milligan family. " BUSINESS MANAGER AND TREASURER J.

The Buf- raloes won a moral victory by redeeming the 1843 Burley Bowl 21-13 defeat and end- ing the untied and undefeated record of the S;utheastern team. Lynn Goddard kept the Lions on their haunches with his long distance punts in the second half and the Buff linemen dug in to ke=p the goal line protected. The Herd came back the following week with a hard-gought victory over the Wasps of Emory (5t Henry. The stinger was removed cautiously, the Buffs coming out with a 19-7 victory. Traveling to High Point, N. C. the Buffa- loes were furiously attacked by the local Panthers and came scampering home with a 14-6 defect. Sonny Hale returned a punt 65 yards to score the Herd ' s lone touchdown. Playing host in Kingsport to the Blue Raid- ers of Middle Tennessee Teachers, the pound- i.-ig herd was slowed to a walk and found itself on the short end of a 7-0 struggle. The heavier Radiers displayed a powerful team with superior speed and deception. St;il Burning from the branding by the Blu3 Raiders, the Buffaloes stampeded the Tusculum College Pioneers 40-0 in the Pio- neers ' own front yard. Displaying for the first time a brilliant offensive attack, the Herd led all the way in all statistical divi- sions.

The next " dope-bucket " which overturned came when the Catamounts of Western Carolina Teachers attack- ed the Buffaloes at Elizabethton on October 18... After being held scoreless for the first half, the Buffs came thundering back to win 19-0.. Lynn Goddard ' s magnificient punting kept the " Cats " deep in their own territory.-. Claude Hosclaw paced the scoring attack, heaving two touchdown passes and also scoring from the one yard line for the other touchdown. On October 25 the Buffs came face to face with the S tetson University Hatters at Deland Florida. Before a large crowd of surprised spectators they pounded the heavy Hatters and within the last 5 minutes of play, came from behind a 13-7 score to tie at 13-13 and went on to victory 2 0-13. Again it was Goddard who surprised the opponent ' s safety men with his long kicks... Hosclaw threw touchdown passes to " Lefty " Bowers and Bill Kinsey for the first two touchdowns and John Manning climaxed the scoring with a last minute pass interception in midfield and behind well timed blockig, and in front of desparate Stetson University tacklers dashed 50 yards down the sideline to score the winning touchdown. On November 1 the Buffs tangled with the high-flying Carson-Newman Eagles in Jefferson City. From the statis- tical standpoint the Herd won another victory, gaining 27 2 yards to t he Eagles ' 85; and 17 first dawns to 5 for C-N. Milligan fumbled the opening kick-off and the Eagles recovered on the Buff 2 yard line and scored the following play. From midfield on the first play of the second half the Eagles passed for their final touchdown. Trailing 12 to late in the third quarter the Buffs recovered a fumble on the Eagle 15. After advancing the ball to the 10 the Buffs scored on a pass from Holsclaw to Dugger in the e nd zone. The Herd ' s line played superb ball, Co-Captain Fine, Harmon and Caldwell doing great defensive work. Before a homecoming crowd at Johnson City on November 8 the Buffs turned back a fighting Tennessee Wesleyan eleven 13-6. Midway in the first quarter the Buffs scored alter Ha ' rkleroad blocked a kick on the Bulldog 44. In the fourth quarter following a Bulldog TD from a blocked pu nt the Herd came back and scored 5 plays later. Manning, Dugger, and Hale alternating the ball carrying behind the Buff line. In the final tilt of the regular season the Buffs were d ealt a stinging 27-0 setback by the mighty Applachian Mountaineers who were bent on revenge for a 6-0 beating at the hands of Milligan last season. In a sea of mud the heavier Mountaineers with their fleet-footed backs drove to 4 touchdowns while the Buff passing attack was almost at a standstill. BASEBALL Front row: Benlley.

Much of the praise must go to Coach Yancey for his continually pressing and urging the team on to greater heights. In a team made up of several highscoring men there was constantly shown a high degree of teamwork and is illustrated by the season ' s total points, 2,302, which does not include tourn- ament scores. Leading this scoring spree was Kenny Hyder, 469 points; Sid Hathaway, 343; Kyle Middleton, 340; Paul Griz, 324; Carl Gouge, 279; Carl Shepherd, 208. In the following three years of basketball, Milligan fans should see an equally superb team from such standouts as Hyder, Hathaway, and Middleton. There should still be a lot of good basketball ability displayed in the work of captains Shepherd and Griz and also of Gouge and Elliot. Motherly and Walker were the only seniors on the squad. With the work of this season ' s standouts and the competition of Coach Spraker ' s " B " squad keeping the spirit high, the immediate future of basketball at Milligan really looks bright.

Largely, through the untiring efforts of Coach S. W. Rice, track is again becoming a major sport at Milligan. With possible entries in relays in Florida, Alabama, Pennsylvania and the Annual Milligan Relays track supporters should be optimistic. With the records of the 1947 track team already on the books the 1948 squad is busying itself with the task of developing a greater track team than ever before. The major contribution of Milligan ' s 1947 track team was to start this sport on a larger scale and develop a keen interest among future track candidates. The first Annual Milligan Relays were held last Spring and won by Milligan. This an- nual event is open to all colleges in East Tennessee, Southv est Virginia, and Western Car- olina, and to all high schools in this area. , :■-. : 1947 Schedule April 19 April 26 May 9 May 20 May 24 Milligan 91 Penn Relays at Milligan 82 Milligan 851 2 Milligan Relays - Mars Hill 40 Philadelphia — Mile Relay Mars Hill 49 Tusculum 39 V2 — Won by Milligan Other entries in the Relays: Milligan State Tusculum Emory Henry Mars Hill Pikeville, (Ky.) 40 27 23 12 10 4 1 3 1 3 TENNIS Ripley, Mgr., McCuiry, Stanlield, Robinette. Archer, Walker, Reynolds, Mgr. Led by captain Francis Brumit the tennis team made a perfect " love " season out of the 1947 schedule. In winning thirteen games and tying one they became the first tennis team in Milligan history to go through a full season undefeated. Under the watchful eyes of Dr. Thompson, the following men made possible this outstanding record: Francis Brumit, Bob Showalter, Bob Rice, Roland McCurry, Johnny Walker, Edwin Archer, Joe Hagan, and Man- ager George Reynolds. Returning for the 1948 season are Roland MCurry, Johnny Walker, and Edwin Archer around which another strong squad should be built with the help of newcomers on the cam- pus.
