This club is much dif- ferent from any other organization on campus. It is for the pure relaxation from the everyday work that transpires here at Milligan.

The music de- partment includes the Concert Choir, Girls ' Chorus, a sextet, and also trios and quartets. The highlight in the year of the Concert Choir is the tour which is taken in early spring. However, it is also quite ac- tive in Founder ' s Day, the Christmas program, May Day, and Commencement. The music department of Milligan also gives a thirty minute TV program each week. Both those who partici- pate and those who merely listen gain much inspiration through music at Milligan. The various ensembles take part in many local churches, schools, and civic organiza- tions.

The Buffaloes won eleven and lost eleven — playing some of the top small college teams in this section of the country. Coach Walker patiently worked with and led the boys in a way that could not be surpassed. To the managers, Jim Ivanoff and Glenn Arwood, we say " thank you " for a job well done. The boys were on the job continually, always doing their best.

Much of the success of the ball club can be credited to Coach Duard Walker who is in his fifth season at Milligan. Coach Walker, who is a former Milligan athlete, strives to instill an attitude of determina- tion and will to win, plus sportsmanship in all of his players. 34 Warnock Covell Gardner Dougherty Hall Gibbs De Vault Williams Aldridge 85 INTRAMURAL Folk rhythms are enjoyed by all Ping pong in the SUB ' Dead aim " iil M M M Springtime ushers in golf ' slugger " swats one The girls enjoy volleybal Fencing requires agility « «! . - ■ggpWZZi-. £M r : ' ■ : i ±£ M " f- -ylP :s .
