We are happy to dedicate this annual to one whose Christian character and versatility are respected by every member of the Milligan Family. IN MEMORIAM Barbara Main had the quality of distinction in soul, in mind, and in personality. Hers was a ready, friendly, quiet smile and word of greeting for every- one. Every one of us remembers a thoughtful act, graciously taken from a busy schedule and bestowed as though she were the recipient of favor. She exer- cised leadership through service. Her class, the col- lege, and the Church are poorer through her leaving us but the richer because she was among us. Her courage and quiet faith in the hour of tragic death enshrines for us the glowing hope of resurrection to life eternal. IS Education on our campus is as a jewel with many facets. One surface shines with classes, others sparkle with such clubs as the Commerce, Missionary Fellowship, and Christian Service Clubs. These help create interest for various fields, enjoyably applying curricular studies to current life, produc- ing a radiant gem. CLUBS 16 BUFFALO STAFF The work involved in the edition of the BUFFALO is momentous. The ' 58- ' 59 staff has seen this verified to the utmost. During the early spring the former editor resigned. With very little accomplished before the deadline, the remaining staff labored diligently to have the BUFFALO in your hands at the earliest dare. We hope that this reaches your highest ex- pectations for a record of this school year. Jim Pierson, Editor and Business Manager. Mildred Turner, Assistant Editor. Marti Fry, Assistant Business Manager. 17 Harold Kast, Head Photographer. David Hall, Photographer. Carl Main, Asst. Photographer. Dorothy Liston, Head Typist. Duane Calhoun, Photographer.

The Staff publishes eight editions annually and exchanges newspapers with other col- leges. Ruth Hammack is Editor and Gene Garlichs is Business Manager. FOOTLIGHTERS The height of dramatic talent on campus is usually found in the Footlighters. They are responsible for a big play produc- tion during the school year. We were especially delighted with the magnificent performance of Arthur Miller ' s All My Sons. The officers for the club are Laura Nelle Hamilton, president, and Jimmie Pierson, secretary-treasurer. 20 FOOTLIGHTERS AT WORK The spring play production, ALL MY SONS, by Arthur Miller, was presented May 1, 1959, by the Footlighters. Such productions offer not only good entertainment for the student body and the sur- rounding communities, but also give many s1u- dents opportunities for expressing their acting, staging, costuming, and directing abilities. 21 Left to right: Vonda Martin, Earl Eidson, David Hall, and Dick Burger.

In order to further its purpose the Christian Service Club sponsors weekly Gospel preaching and singing. 23 MINISTERIAL ASSOCIATION The Ministerial Association is an organi- zation of men preparing to be ministers and specialized Christian workers. Here these stu- dents can find fellowship and can be mu- tually helpful in matters concerning their serv- ice to the Church and College.

VETERANS CLUB The Veterans ' Club was organized in 1956. Its pur- pose, as stated at the time of organization, was to aid in the adjustment of the veteran to college life while performing various services to the college. (One must be a veteran of at least 90 days ' service to be eligible for membership.) 28 PRE-MED CLUB The Pre-AAed Club helps its members to gain some knowledge of what lies before them in their chosen careers in medical or closely allied fields. Their regular meetings are devoted to dis- cussions and activity related to their chosen professions. Officers for this year are; Sam Starnes, President; Jerry Willis, Vice President; Zenobia Sisk, Secretary; and Willis Warrender, Treasurer. 29 ■ ' " All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy " could be applied as the motto of the Buffalo Ramblers Club. Members of this club realize that the constant pressure of college work must be broken at intervals by activities that will afford them exercise and relaxation. Hikes, moun- tain climbing, and cave exploring are natural activities in beautiful East Tennessee. Chuck Shumard is President. BUFFALO RAMBLERS Below: Whata mess! Office rs are: President, Brigetta Thomas; Vice President, Joyce Harris; Secretary, Joani Robinson. ZELOTAI The wives of the ministerial students and those in the Bible department make up the Zelotai. They have as their high purpose the training and growth of their Christian character. Through regular meetings much is accomplished tha proves beneficial for both the women and the church. 31 James Fisher, President The Student Council is the official voice of the student body in all matters pertaining to student life. As a constitutional representative assembly, the Council is responsible both to the President of the College and to the student body. This year the Council has taken up the tradition of progress by making strides forward in a new constitution, establishing the Milligan Forum and the Commut- ing Students ' Council, and inaugurating an office and a treasury. Throughout the year the Council has worked to provide and maintain a well-balanced social, spiritual, and academic life, and to facilitate communication and coordination between the stu- dents and faculty.

Music at Milligan in all phases is an act of worship to our Lord. It has a sense of relaxation and joy. Whether it be pops or serious it ties us together with its beauty by permitting us to talk through a different mode. Music, which adds to the Christian atmosphere, is one of our offerings to God. CONCERT CHOIR The Milligan College Concert Choir repre- sents a dedicated group of students who practice daily to achieve a unity of song as well as spirit. The greatest opportunity to serve is during the two weeks ' tour each spring. A blessing through song is provided for those in the various states reached each year. The choir is instrumental in challenging many young people to enroll in the college whose high Christian ideals are personified in this representative group. Because of its high standards of performance, membership in the organization is recognized as both a privilege and an honor. 34 Freshman Choir Council: John Starr, Barbara Byrd, Vic Brown, Pat Meehan, and Dick True. FRESHMAN CHOIR The Freshman Choir, under the direction of Betty J. Lawson, has contributed greatly to the musical life of Milligan this year with its Christmas program, pre-Easter cantata, and presentation of " H. M. S. Pinafore. " Student organists, pianists, and vocalists have partici- pated not only in activities of the College, but also in those of churches and civic organ- izations of this area. Choir group picture.

These four intercollegiate sports, plus a well-organized intramural program, make the school vibrant with uniting activity.

BASKETBALL Playing a powerful schedule, the Milligan Buffs won eight and lost thirteen. However, the team was praised and taken to heart by the school and the fans alike. The man lead- ing the team was Coach Duard Walker. Del Harris won All-Conference for both SMAC and VSAC and was also chosen for Honorable Men- tion on the Little All-American team for small colleges. In Del ' s four years at Milligan, he averaged eighteen points per game.
