YORK Dean of Men FACULTY Milligan graduates will remember that the college campus is richly endowed by nature and universally admired. The groves of trees, the shrubbery, the winding creek with the oaks on the hillside, make it a scene of unusual beauty and a pleasant place to go to school. We shall not soon forget the several different appear- ances of Buffalo Mountain, four miles from the campus, rising to a height of four thousand feet. CHARLES AKARD Chemistry BERT E.

EDWARDS Religion LOIS HALE Registrar H HI FACULTY Professors are human, we discovered, and we were glad of it, because the learning process at its best is an exchange between human personalities. Milligan has always been noted for the closs relationship between faculty and students which would be impossible in a larger college. And all our professors are interesting people, well worth getting acquainted with. These people are capable and well-trained educators that sacrifice a great amount of their lives so that we may leave these halls as wiser and more capable people than we were when we entered. In the course of time they have been understanding counsel- lors unto us so that we might take the proper path for us as individuals. Whether or not this will be a successful attempt will depend largely on that individual, but we do hope that no matter what does become of us, we will carry some little part of these lives with us to make us greater than we would ordinarily be. We wish to take this opportunity to sincerely thank OUR FACULTY for services so nobly rendered. May your lives be endowed by greater blessings than ever before. SAM J. HYDER Mathematics IVOR JONES History . ELMER C. LEWIS Executive Vice-President MRS. SHIRLEY LONG Resident Nurse HODGE MATHES Romantic Languages ROBERT MILLHORN Bookkeeper THOMAS MILLIGAN Psychology CONSTANCE MYNATT Physical Education WHO LEAD AND Leading the faculty and students are three people who are very seldom given the credit they so honestly deserve. These people are Donald G. Sahli, Academic Dean of the College; Harley F. York, Dean of Men; and Mildred Wel- shimer, Dean of Women. Upon Dean Sahli lies the responsibility of academic matters as well as the welfare of all the students. For the first semester the Dean was acting in the capacity of president which alone was an enormous job within itself. He has very ably filled this task and all others that have been for the welfare of the school. Next on our list is Dean York who has been with us for the past two years. His job has been one that consisted of many diversified problems which arise in everyday school life. These he has taken in his calm stride and easy going manner which to any man is a great asset. Last but by no means least on our list is Miss Welshimer, the Dean of Milligan College women. She has, in her three years at Milligan, been a spiritual guide to the girls that have come and gone from the halls of Hardin. A leader in religious and social life on the campus, she has a winning personality that is hard to beat anywhere. Ray Stahl, Executive Secretary, confers with Mrs. Mina Ruth Ripley and Robert M i If horn about plans for a greater Milligan. GUY OAKES Education EDWIN OLDS Physical Education BETTY JANE OSTERLAND Music SERVE US The arrival of Doctor Dean Everest Walker as the President of Milligan College has been another milestone in the history of this school. The future now holds brighter prospects than ever before for this school to become one of the greatest in this section of the country. After the absence of a president for a year and a half, Dr. Walker was greeted with open hearts by every one on the campus. This was not due only to the fact that we were without a leader, but more so to the reputation that this man brought with him. He was known widely as an educator, civic leader, athletic enthusiast, and above all a Godly man. Before coming to Milligan, Dr. Walker was the head of the Department of Church History at Butler University at Indianapolis, Indiana. The presence of such an able, well- trained man cannot help but aid the progress of our col- lege. We count Dr. Walker ' s arrival as a great loss to Butler and outstanding asset to Milligan.

Putting on our caps and gowns, we tried to think of Gradu- ation Day as triumph, victory, the reaching of a goal. But we couldn ' t help thinking of the four years just past— gone now forever. The days that are milestones in our lives, these very happiest days have something sad to say about the passage of Time. We find it best to talk about vacation plans, graduate work, the good jobs we might get. The future is bright.

Betty Smithson Bristol, Tennessee Homecoming Queen, 1949 One of the highlights of the year at Milli- gan is the excitement attendant upon the elec- tion and naming of the Homecoming Queen. Each club sponsors a candidate, thus providing a group of eligibles for the honor. Then, by secret ballot, the students cast their votes for their favorite. The winner — this year, Betty Smith — is crowned queen during the half-time ceremonies at the Homecoming football game, which this year was the game with Stetson Uni- versity that ended in a I 3 to 13 deadlock.

The King and Queen of the May are elected by secret ballot along with the Court including four Seniors. This is another highlight of the year at Milligan. There is usually a pag- eant theme, this being centered around Robin Hood this Spring. MAY KING AND OUEEN: This year ' s May Queen is Miss Ruth O ' Neill from Norton, Virginia. Miss O ' Neill ' s King is Mr. Leroy Wright from Bistol, Virginia. VALENTINE PARTY Each year one of the main events is the annual Valentine party held in Cheek gymnasium for the students of Milligan College. To high- light this event, there is the crowning of a Valentine king and queen. Skits from great his- torical love scenes are presented by the clubs on the campus in honor of this royal couple. After the entertainment is over the couple takes the head of the line that has formed for refresh- ments which are always a great treat. This year ' s party was a great success and we hope that those in the future will be even more so. This year ' s valentine party was brought to a climax by the crowning of Miss Betty Willis as the Queen of the party, and Mr. Bucky Harris as the King. Kyle Middleton as the star in " Pokey Huntus " and John Smith. This skit was quite a success with the crowd gathered for the party.

Here we have pictured, after a big meal, John Ammerman watching on as Ruth O ' Neill pays for the big time. Many other students participated in activities such as this. Typical of entertainment during the year was the visit of the Barter Players in one of the dressiest productions presented by the State Theatre of Virginia in many sea- sons — " Dangerous Corner " . ENTERTAINMENT All the clubs combined to give a Christmas Party in the gymnasium where there was plenty of food and fun over Santa opening Christmas presents. This is the first occasion of this kind, but will undoubtedly become an annual event. Randy Cooper, Art Editor of the Buffalo, Kem- toned Santa ' s face seen in the background above.

Eighteen lettermen were among the candidates that greeted their new coach, and all began the " 49 " season in earnest. The Buffs opened the season with a strong Woffard team that was composed of former high school and college stars. Outweighed and outclassed the Milligan eleven lost by the score of 41-0. On September 24th the Herd traveled to Bristol and met the Wasps of Emory and Henry. In this game the Buffs still felt the heavy defeat at the hands of the Woffard bunch, and lost to the Wasps 27-7. The Wasps scored in every quarter and fumbled occasionally to throw away other scoring opportunities. It was the first defeat a Milligan team had suffered in Bristol since 1939. The Buffs then left the state of Tennessee and found themselves in Florida to engage in a game with the University of Tampa. Here the Buffs registered their first win of the season, 20-19. Having tasted victory the Herd traveled again, this time to Tusculum where they tied the Pioneers 7-7. Neither team could advance the ball deep into enemy terri- tory after each had scored. With one win, one tie, and two losses the Herd finally appeared before the student body and the home folks in a homecoming game with Stetson University. The passing and receiving combination of Dick Kennedy and Kirby Laughlin featured the Milli- gan attack. This twin Ohio combination netted most of the yardage and the only two TD ' s that the Herd scored. The next game found the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee gaining the first victory from a Milligan eleven since 1946. It was too much Middle Tennessee, and the home folks had a dismal night as the locals threatened only once throughout the entire contest. Taking to the road again the Herd this time encount- ered the Carson Newman Eagles, and defeated them 6-0. Jones played outstanding defense for the Buffs, and Dugger with the Beeler boys, J. A. and Bill on the offensive. 1949 FOOTBALL SOUAD: First row: Gray, Laughlin, Thornburg, Bibb, Lyle, Scarengi, Smith, Kelly, Porter, Roberts. Second row: Hardin, Bible, Lambert, J. A.

It was the third win for the Herd and brought them above the 500 per cent line. Taking to the road again, the Buffs played the Marshall Green Wave, and found the Green Wave to strong for them. The final score was 34-0. For the first three periods the Buffs held the winners to a touchdown. In the last quarter the Wave turned on their big offensive power and soundly whipped the boys. In the final game of the year the Buffs and the local State Bucs tangled, and when the shouting was all over the Buccaneers had a victory, 28-0. It was a bitter defeat and the fans that wit- nessed the game felt that it was the best game that State had played all year. The entire 1949 season had its ups and downs.

THE CAPTAINS Leading the " Buffs " in the past gridiron campaign were two of the team ' s most out- standing players, Captain George Dugger and Captain John Vaccaro. These two, with their fine cooperative spirit and their grim determi- nation, won the hearts of all of us. George came to Milligan in 1946 from nearby Elizabethton, Tenn., and this was his fourth year of service with the " Buffs " . He played a halfback position, and this past sea- son he was selected on the All Conference team of the Smoky Mountain Conference. Our other captaincy was ably filled by John Vaccaro, who hails from Princeton, N. J. " Vac " , as he is known around the Campus, came to Milligan in 1947 and is now a Junior. " Vac " played a guard position and was one of the " Buff ' s " most stalwart linemen. Through his team spirit, his will to win, and through his fine leadership, he commanded the respect of play- ers and fans alike. Thanks, boys, for a job well done! Donnie Lambert skirts left end for a nice gain in an early game. State scores a tough one against the Buffs. OUR FOOTBALL MANAGERS While most of the glory and well-wishing is handed out to the men who play football, there are men behind the scene, so to speak, that hardly get the attention that they deserve. This year we had two very fine managers in John Ammerman and Michael Kostko. Both boys hail from the Keystone State of Pennsylvania and are majoring in Physical Education. Mike is the senior member of the duet and has participated in some athletics at Milligan. He has played two years on the " B " team in basketball, besides being an aid to John in football. John is a sophomore and a member of the varsity basketball team. John gained valuable experience this year and should prove a valu- able asset in the future of Milligan athletics. To both boys who have worked so hard for the success of our team, we give our sincerest thanks. Managers — John Ammerman and Mike Kostko. Winters, center. Wright, guard. Bowers, tackle.
