Buiiiiess Adininiitraliu)! The Class of ' 49 is the first class to enroll at Milligan College since the departure of the Navy V-12 Units in 1945, and it is the largest class ever to be graduated from Milligan. There are fifty- seven candidates for degrees — thirty-five Bachelor of Arts and twenty-two Bachelor of Science Degrees. With the seniors coming from Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Puerto Rico, this graduating class offers proof positive that the fame of Milligan College is indeed widespread. We who are now leaving our fair institution hope that in years to come the good reputation of our Alma Mater will be further enhanced by the work which we shall do in our various fields of endeavor.

Milligan ' s campus is richly endowed by nature and is universally admired. It is a panorama of beauty. The groves of trees, the shrubbery, the winding " Buffalo Creek " with the oaks on the hillside, make it a scene where truly " the heavens declare the glory of God; and the earth showeth His handiwork. " The world that we ' re a livin ' in Is mighty hard to heat. You get a thorn with every rose, But ain ' t the roses sweet? — Frank L.

Their names, with a short biography, appear in an annual publication known as " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities. " The five seniors shown above were chosen to represent Milligan College for the school year 1948-49. We believe that our pride in them is justified.

Gordon Warner. The Choir to date has made five concert tours — traveling nine thousand miles in seventeen states and the District of Columbia, singing in Christian Churches, high schools, and radio stations. Altogether the Choir, including local appearances, has presented over a hundred music programs. Among the larger cities in which the Choir has sung are Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington, D. C. The Choir alwaj s strives to maintain a high standard in the selection of its literature as well as in the performance of it. The Choir, besides training its members musically and socially, that is, socially in the best sense of the word, acts as an agent of goodwill in public and church relations for the Christian institution it represents, not only on a broad basis geo- graphically, but in a variety of other ways. Its ideal, as an organization, is the at- tainment of higher character for its individual members, and in Christian service for all through the medium of good music. E. Gordon Warner, Director HOPWOOD MEMORIAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH The present Hopwood Memorial Christian Church on the campus has a long history. There was a flourishing congregation in 1836 when the church was known as the " Buffalo Creek Christian Church. " Work was begun on the present structure toward the close of President Derthick ' s administration and on Easter Sunday, April 13, 1941 this new building was dedicated with C. E. Burns, then acting President of Milligan College, bringing as the Dedicatory address, " Five Years of Building. " It was at this time that the name " Hopwood Memorial Christian Church " was given in memory of Josephus Hopwood, who came to Tennessee and began Milligan College. Since then, Ihoasands of young people have received rich spiritual blessings as they have worshipped in the church. CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR John Caldwell President Robert White Vice President Delores Cooke Secretary-Treasurer The young people of the college meet each Lord ' s Day evening at 6:00 p. m., in the Hopwood Memorial Church. Problems of interest to the development of Christian character are discussed and many social events are carried on throughout the year. The meetings allovi for much self expression and creative ability. Miss Welshimer, teacher of the College Bible Class, is sponsor of the youth group. ■ THE CHRISTIAN SERVICE CLUB Joe Grain President Marshall Leggett Vice President Shirley DeArmond Secretary-Treasurer Miss Welshimer Sponsor The Christian Service Club is composed of students who are interested in Christian service in all walks of life. Members are not only Bible majors but Business, Educational, Pre-Med, and other majors. Under the direction of Miss Welshimer, ten Gospel Teams were formed. These teams provide devotional services for the college chapel assemblies, nearby high school programs and for many churches. The teams have given programs in churches in Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia and Ohio. The College Prayer Room is a project of this group. This room is open at all times for the students to pray and meditate. Each morning students go to the Prayer Room before they begin the school day. The weekly club meetings are held in this room. The club sponsored a Youth Revival last fall with Paul Jones, minister of the Christian Church at Hillsboro, Ohio, as the speaker. MINISTERIAL ASSOCIATION The Milligan College Minisierial Association began April 12, 1948. In a meeting of ministerial students, April 16, 1948, a Constitution Committee was appointed, and on April 27, a tentative constitution was formulated. In the first called assembly on April 30, the temporary constitution was read, and was confirmed in a special meeting May 7. The officers elected were William Small, ]jresident; Leroy Wright, vice president; and Claude Cal- la vay, secretary-treasurer. The Milligan College Ministerial Association exists for the purpose of providing an organization through which the ministerial students of the College can find lellowship and be mutually helpful one to another in matters concerning their lite and work in the Church and College. Believing that there is in this generation the task of perpetuating the ideals and work put forth by the people of faith and ision who founded and built Milligan College, the membership of this Association endeavors to Create and maintain a Cliristian spirit on the campus. Seek to uphold the Christian ideals and standards of Milligan College. Encourage the Ministerial students to maintain the Iiighest possible standards of Christian Character To assist students in finding places of service i)i nearby churches. Help build the strongest Bible department at Milligan Collese. Membership, open to all men officially enrolled at Milligan who are preparing for the Christian Minis- try, is al.so based upon certain specific qualifications, Scliolastically, a member must maintain an average grade of " C " . He must be fully endorsed by his home church. . bove all, his daily living must be unquestionably Chris- tian. A breach of anyone requirement may forfeit mem- beship in the organization. Officers are elected Irom among members of the three upper classes, and dining the tenure of their offices, they are not eligible to hold office in any other organization of the College. The Association functions under a system of six com- mittees, the last of which is an advisory committee con- sisting of the President of the College, and members of the faculty who are teaching in the Bible department. There is no provision for an .A.ssociation sponsor. Upon the formation of the Association in April, 1948, there were seventeen charter members. At the be- giiniing of the spring semester, 1949, there was a mem- bership of twenty: six freshmen, four sophomores, six jimiors, and four seniors. Of this group seven are min- istering to churches full-time; six have part-time ministeries. Each year in October an installation service is held in the Hopwood Memorial Church, at which time new members are formally accepted into the Association. SERVICE SEEKERS Evelyn Large President Mary Perry Vice President Dean Mildred Welshimer ...Sponsor A new organization on the campus this year is the group called the " Service Seekers. " This organization is composed of twenty- two young women who are majoring in Religion. Four of the group are preparing for mission work in foreign countries and the others are planning for home mission work. Meetings are held once a month at which time the many Christian activities for women are discussed. THE MILLIGAN COLLEGE PRE-MED CLUB Bill Stanfield President Charles Anderson Vice President Prof. Lone Sisk Sponsor The Milligan Pre-Med Club is a student organization of those who are preparing to enter medicine. The members meet every two weeks throughout the year and work continuously to increase the interest in Pre-medical work. During the school 3 ' ear 1948-1949, the club obtained a skeleton for the Biology Department and added several volumes of medical books to the library. Guest speakers from among the local doctors and dentists made the meetings more interesting and profitable. The club is gratified to know that a number of the senior members have been accepted for graduate work and will be in medical schools next year. HOME EC CLUB Dorothy Riddle President Catherine Howell Vice President The Home Ec Club has long been a part of the activities of the Milligan campus. This year, under the direction of Mrs. Vanland- ingham, the club has proved a successful one although the member- ship is smaller than last year. The girls worked on conditioning the Home Ec Cottage and enjoyed several social gatherings. THE BUFFALO RAMBLERS Ellen Austin President Roger Clites Vice President " A hike into the country every now and then does us all good. " So say the members of the Buffalo Ramblers as they are off for a cross-country hike. The outdoors is almost a laboratory for this group. THE COMMERCE CLUB Kermit Hall President Mildred Bolling Vice President Organized to promote interest in and understanding of business, the Commerce Club is a vital part of the life of those studying Business Administration. THE DRAMATIC CLUB Many times during the year the Dramatic Club entertained the student body in assembhes and at special seasons of the year. The outstanding production was " The Goose Hangs High " a comedy in three acts. The Commencement plays were well received and a credit to the work of the Club. Dr. Jennie Lorenz is the director of play productions. WOMEN ' S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Ann VonCannon President The Women ' s Athletic Association promotes the athletic pro- gram for Milligan girls. This club has been responsible for a strong Women ' s Intramural sports program. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLUB Ernest Ellenburg President The purpose of this club is to inform those interested in Physical Education of the new developments in this field. It offers oppor- tunity for social gatherings and professional meetings for those who plan to teach Health and Physical Education.

State SQMMARY 1948 FOOTBALL Playing the toughest schedule in the history ol Milligan lootball. the Bulls, were impressive in every game of the season. All games were close and bitterly fought from start to finish. The Buffs opened with a 25-0 victory over Salem; then followed with a 6-0 ictory over Emory and Henry and a 20-13 surprise win over Tampa University. Against Southeastern Louisiana in New Orleans the Buffs dropped their lone game of the year 14-0. On return the Thundering Herd began to roll. On successive weekends Tusculum fell 7-0; Stetson 13-7: Middle Tenn., 7-0; Carson-Newman 19-7; Tennessee Wesleyan 19-7 and West Virginia Tech 21-7. The season finale was a 0-0 deadlock with East Tennessee State. The Buffs were a surprising team all season, fn six games football experts picked the Buffs to lose. On each occasion the Herd won by a single touch- down, and none of the teams scored against the Buffs more than twice. The season was full of high lights but perhaps the star that will glitter the longest was the thundering triumph over Carson-Newman, 19-7. Battling a more experienced flock of Eagles the Buffs were never better than they were at that game. The Homecoming affair with Stetson University was probably the most color- ful as the Buffs came out with a brand new ersion of the T formation to win 13-7. This marked the first full game under the popular T brand of football. -Mumni were more than pleased to see their Alma Mater sweep up the gridiron on a series of wide T plays. Team co-operation and hustle were the outstanding features of the team which was without any individual stars honors were well scattered all season. Visiting scouts and opposing coaches were quick to tag the Buffs as a versatile team which could switch from the Single Wing and Short Punt formations to run the T. and Winged T with finesse and precision. Being able to switch as they were, the Buffs were never hurt too much by the scouts who sat in the stands by the dozens. W. H.

Too, most of them were sop- homores as the year began. The " Beat Milligan " shingle was hanging in the dressing room of every small college in three states. Everyone was aware of the fact that the Buffs were on the spot in this season after hav- ing cavorted to such unprecedented heights in 1947-48. Miliigan ' s Thundering Herd had a record to defend having won 33 times in 43 games, scoring 2,762 points. Following much the same pattern as they did in 1948. the 1949 Buffs dropped 6 of their first nine games losing to Marshall, William and Mary, Erskine and South Georgia Teachers. Following the Christmas holi- days however the high powered Buffs swung into higli and began to unloose their fury on one small college after another. L. M. U. was the only Smoky Mountain team that stopped the Buffs. Milligan split with the following teams during the season: State, L. M. U., Berea, Cumberland, Austni Peay, Middle Tennessee, Erskine. They posted two wins against the following: King, Emory and Henry, Cumberland, Pikeville, Carson-Newman, Tusculum. The Buffs set a new scoring record for the annals of Milligan athletics. In 40 games they scored 2.794 points for an over all average of 69.9 points per contest, winning 26 and losing 14. The Herd won the consolation trophy in the Vohin- teer State basketball tournament and the Tournament of Champions in Johnson City. In the VSAC at Clarksville, the Buffs were defeated by L. M. U. 68-64 in the Semi-finals after having set a new tournament scoring record by whipping Cumberland 88-67 in the opening round. In the consolation game the Buffs broke their own record and set another scoring mark by -whipping Union University 91-65 for the third place honor. The Buffs also set a new scoring record in tournament play for three games posting 243 points for an average per game of 81 points. Many local sports fans felt that the 1949 edition of the Buffs was hardly up to the team of the pre ' ious year. Many argued that the) ' were better since they laced tougher opposition this season and since every team their own strength was pointing for them. Kenny Hyder, Sid Hathaway, Kyle Middleton, Carl Gouge, and Paul Griz led the offensive for the Buffs. Carl Shepherd and Frank Dumisinecz chalked up the best defensive efforts. Kenny Hyder led the scoring with 575 points followed closely by Sid Hath- away. Hyder won the free throw percentage trophy. He tossed in 77 percent of all foul shots dming the season. Hyder was selected to All VSAC team and Hathaway, Hyder and Gouge were selected on the ten man all tourney squad. Kyle Middleton was voted the outstanding player of the season. Sam Priden, Dick Kennedy, and John Ammerman rounded out the ten man squad with Priden Iseing tabbed as potentially a great player in his second year at Milligan. With the smoke clearing alter two seasons with the " Whiz Kids " a few things are delinite. Milligan will win ball games next season, they will score if given the chance and they will give this area fast furious type of play. In the last ten games of 1949, the Buffs won 8 and lost 2 and scored 839 for an average of 83.9. This was by far the ' smoothest, best ball the Buffs have played in the past two seasons.
