T II i: CHOI It The Milligan College Choir is in its fifth year of activity. At present, the choir is under the direction of Miss Ruth White, with Miss Janet Catlett as accompanist. During the first semes- ter, two major programs were presented in the college auditor- ium. On the lighter side, the choir enjoyed giving a college minstrel. And in contrast, the ever-beloved Christmas story was given in pageant and song. The second semester the choir toured through the Northeastern states. Other concert programs were given by the choir during the year. MISIC AT MILLIGA I T M I ' % C 11 O II 1 S A new organization to the college this year — still in its embryonic stages —is the Men ' s Chorus. This group also par- ticipated in the minstrel. Christmas Pageant, and several chapel programs during the year. We have high hopes for the growth of this fine organization. 39 KFLIGIOX IS A WAY OF LIFE Christian Education is the hope of the world — the motto of Milligan College The religious life of our school is centered around this motto. We seek to pro- vide a Christian atmosphere for students taking every field of work Milligan offers. This Christian liberal arts ' college seeks to have the principles of Christ- ian living permeate the lives of every student — doctor, minister, secretary, teacher. All of the religious activities on the campus are for the purpose of bringing each student closer to God and the realization that only through God can one find true peace and happiness with his neighbors and himself. We fully realize the importance of education in the lives of young people today, but we feel that education in itself is not enough. It is Christian Education that is the hope of the world Convocation at Milligan was held on September 17, 1950. This calling together of the students after the summer vacation took the form of a very impressive service. The service took place at the Hopwood Memorial Church at 11:00 A.M. Members of the faculty were in academic robes and formed a processional with the members of the senior class. Special music was given by Miss Ruth White with Dr. Walker, president of the college, delivering the message of the morning.

A senior from Johnson City, Cliff had three yeors of varsity football under his belt ■when he took over as captain in early Sep- tember. Cliff possesses fine cooperative spirit and " was respected by teammates and oppo- nents alike. He was placed on the V. S. A. C. All Star team as defensive center. A great team man, an able leader and fine fellow all added up to a job well done. Thanks, Cliff. « » : J ohtt Mo or t mmerman Am, iirft 9 ' V ,fM Jfci--- J . CWZ ' Lffei ' -lfe MILLIGAN BUFFALOES Thirty-four Buffaloes, including nineteen lettermen, greeted coaches Eddie Olds and Frank Spraker for the opening session of the ' 50 edition of the Thunder- ing Herd. The initial tilt with bowl-bound Emory Henry was a classic example of the many against the few. The Buffs were trailing by only 6 points at the half, but faded after the intermission before superior num- bers, as Emory rolled to a 41-0 victory. The following week the Buffs travelled to Middle Tennessee State and lost to the Raiders by a score of 47-6. Again the Buffs trailed by only 6 points at half-time, but could not keep pace after the rest period. On October 7th the Herd appeared before homefolks and rewarded them with a 20-0 victory over Tusculum. It was a hard-fought ball game and a deserving victory for the Buffaloes. Stetson University furnished the op- position the following week and conquered the Buffs 41-0. It was a 14-0 ball game at the half with the whole Milligan line playing good football. Stetson cap italized on intercepted passes and converted them into touchdowns to nail down the Buffs ' third loss. Calhoun, Winters and Jones were outstanding for the Buffs. The hepped-up Buffaloes climaxed Homecoming activities with a well-earned 7-6 victory over Austin Peay State. This was the Buffs ' finest game to date, and they deserved to win. The Orange and Black really showed their colors in a 7-7 tie with the highly favored Carson- Newman Eagles. It was at least a moral victory for the Buffs in a bitterly fought contest that featuied vicious line play, terrific blocking and a thrilling finish. The following week the Buffs dropped a close one to the Newberry Indians by a score of 6-0. The Buffs were just naturally " down " after two successive top-notch games. They got back into the win column the following week by trouncing Concord College 26-0. Haines, Adkins, and Scaringi were the defen- sive standouts while Lambert, Hillier, Spraker and B. Beeler furnished most of the offensive punch. The favored Buccaneers of E. T. S. C. were highly " buf- faloed " by an outmanned but fighting Milligan eleven the following week. The 6-6 stalemete climax- ed the season for the Buffs. The game was as even as the score indicated. Both teams had one touch- down called back. Milligan ' s line play was excellent with Ace Adkins, Dumisinecz and Don Jones as the mainsprings. Hillier, B. Beeler and Bernat were the standouts on the offense. Frank Williams ' punting and Dumisinecz ' ball handling were added assets to the Buffs throughout the season and they deserve much credit. Lambert, Jones and Grindstaff gained berths on the All V. S. A. C. offensive eleven, and Winters and Hillier were named to the defensive team. Lambert, Jones and Grindstaff were also named to the All S. M. A. C. eleven. The boys were often outmanned and often beat- en, but they were never without fighting spirit and we ' re proud of them! SENIOR PLAYERS Bill Beeler John Bowers Don Lambert lack Wilson J. A.

THE BUFFALOES PLAY BASKETBALL Despite a mediocre record, the Milligan College Buffaloes turned in another season of thrilling play, which was not without its brighter moments. The Buffs suffered from ineligibility, mid-term graduation, and losses to the service throughout the year. The Herd was paced by its brilliant cap- tain, Sid Hathaway, who maintained a phe- nomenal point average per game, besides leading the team with his aggressive, inspir- ational play. Sid. who is 5 ' 10 " , showed that there is room for the small man in fast com- petition, for he ranked among the highest scorers in the nation. The offensive threats for Milligan were Sid Hathaway, Frank Dumisinecz, and Sam Pri- don, while these, along with Kyman Grind- staff and John Ammerman, an alert ball- hawk, presented a stiff defense. Mack Wolfe, Phil Roush, Glen Boatwright, and Sam Greer turned in valuable efforts as subs. Coach Eddie Olds was hampered by ihe world crisis, which kept the varsity in a state of flux. SCHEDULE .

P. lones Men ' s Director John Ammerman Women ' s Director .. Sally Bellamy Milligan ' s Intramural Council has been one of the most active organizations on the campus this year. The council was organized by the physical education majors lor the purpose of providing the students of Milligan with a well-rounded program of intramural activities throughout the entire year. Both men and women ' s programs were in opera- tion and included the four major sports for men: football, volleyball, basketball, and softball. The women ' s program included badminton, basketball, volleyball, and soft- ball. During the month of March the intra- mural program was dominated by special events which catered to the desires of the students. Through the medium of these activities, the intramural council attempted to convey to the student body the physical, leisure, and social aspects of an intramural program. The members of the council were physical education majors and they were assigned individual sports to direct and organize. In this way the majors received invaluable ex- perience and Milligan was afforded with a well-rounded intramural program that reach- ed the majority of the students, both men and women. jp On the campus BUI and iydia Tcm and Shirley r The Buffalo Elnora and John A happy threesome ■ ; •} «... r m jK ' ?. ;- , • .
