For four years, the class of 1961 has known him as the guid- ing force behind its every activity. Because he is our teacher, preacher, and friend, we proudly dedicate the 1961 Buffalo to our class sponsor. Dr. Crowder. ' f-f ' Below: Dr. Crowder serves as pastor of Hopwood Christian Church.

The P. H. Welshimer Memorial Library, gift of the T. W. Phillips Charitable Trust and the Phillips family of Butler Pennsyl- vania, is nearing completion. The Quality Improvement Award ad- ministered by the Association of American Colleges on behalf of the United States Steel Foundation was won this year by Milligon. In this year Milligon became a fully accredited member of the Southern Associ- ation of Colleges. Milligon resumes a summer session looking toward the adoption of a trimester plan of operation. Outstanding work by a distinguished faculty met with measurable achievement among the students. Unprecedented generosity by Johnson City friends provided for the retirement of the long-standing debt of the college. All of us, the entire Milligon family and friends, rejoice in these achievements and set our faces toward the achievement of further distinction in education. To you, the students, my warmest salute, and my " God speed " on your way. Dean E. Walker, President 16 Administration Dr. Joseph Dampier Provost Miss Lois Hole Registrar Mr. Joe P.

This era is a period of growth and development such as she has never before known. The Student Council of 1960-61 has set as its goal the some record-making advancement as that exhibited by this physical and curricular growth. With the greatest enrollment of its history, Mill igan stands in a position of need- ing an even closer bond between administration and students. Here stands the Student Council, ready to act as a sounding board and administrator of student suggestions and problems. This year ' s Council is proud of its newly completed office in Hardin basement. Even more it is proud to serve a growing school and student body which seeks to direct its initiative and activities in the ways which will help us to better serve God and our fellow man. z-i 24 Student Council Officers: Treasurer, Ray Rensi; President, Jim Lura; Secretary, Joanne Hines; Vice President, Dick True. This newly organized Coun- cil consists of students who represent the " off-campus " or commuting students. Its pur- pose and goals are identical to those of the Student Council in that both Councils work hand in hand for the students and administration of Milligan College. Commuting Students Council: Front: Eddie Fine, President. Behind: Steve Payne, Jim Shields, Charlotte Hyder, Carolyn Hayes, Nell Donnelly, Kathy Snopp. 25 First row: Ann Becker, Judy Pease, Lynn Fowler, Sylvia Lumsden, Alva Lee Sizemore.

Dormitory Councils The Women ' s and Men ' s Dormitory Councils are composed of stu- dents chosen to represent the members of the respective dormitories. Weekly meetings are held by both Councils to discuss matters concern- nig the dormitories and student affairs. The main purpose of these Dormitory Councils is to create, promote, and preserve an atmosphere conducive to study. The Councils try to carry all information between the students and the administration which is pertinent to dormitory life.

This year ' s newspaper has been styled as a magazine-paper with issues published every month except January.

The 1961 Buffalo is the product of the combined efforts of this organization. Much hard work was contributed by every staff member in order to record most effectively the events of 1960 and 1961 at Milligan College. 29 Christian Service Club This year Christian Service Club, one of the oldest organizations on campus, really put its members to work. At the beginning of the school year the students formed " Gospel Teams. " These teams went out to various churches in the area and conducted services. This is the first year that the teams have been so active, and their work proved to be a very reward- ing experience for all who participated.

Service Seekers This organization is open to all girls who wish to learn more about Christian service. It was begun in 1949 by Miss Mildred Welshimer. One of the worthwhile projects of this group is visiting the Children ' s Home in Elizabethton every Saturday afternoon. Also, a Hallowe ' en party is held for these children in October. The club meets every second and fourth Tuesday. 32 First row: Bill Smith, Howard Henning, Harry Show, Martha Sue Orr, Claudia Soylor, Morcio Miller, Sylvia Lumsden.

The Commerce Club provides an oppor- tunity for students interested in business administration and secretarial science to gain a better understanding of business. The club takes conducted tours of several business enterprises during the school year, which helps to give the students a better understanding of the operation of business firms. Films are shown that the students may obtain a broader view of the many aspects that are encountered in the busi- ness world. Fund-raising projects help in the many outside activities sponsored by the club, including the support of a Founder ' s Daughter candidate. The year ' s activities ore concluded by an annual picnic. 33 Footlighters Janie Aman, Kay Eberhard, Connie Foster, Sylvia Lumsden, Jim Eckord, Mory Johnson, Dorie Whitesel, Sylvia Adams, Donna Flick. Officers: President, Janet Knowles; Vice President, Joyce Cobb; Secretary-Treasurer, Marilyn Knopp; Reporter, Pat Picklesimer. For all those students interested in drama, the " Footlighters " provides the per- fect answer. Proving both a challenge and a release, Footlighters gives many oppor- tunities to those dramatically inclined. Whether one desires to emote before the " spots " or work backstage, Footlighters is the solution. Providing a stepping stone to Alpha Psi Omega, this organization is one of the favorites on campus. During the past year this group has sponsored, produced and helped with most of the productions on campus. It is sin- cerely believed that the Footlighters will continue its important part in the college ' s activities. Miss Muse is the sponsor. ed Club The purpose of the Pre-Med Club is to help prepare its members for future careers in medical fields. The meetings ore devoted to discussion and activities related to the stu- dents ' chosen professions. The discussions are often led by men eminent in these fields.

Between November 7 and November 12, these musical groups participated in the annual Arts Festival. The Choralaires presented a concert, and the Touring Choir presented the opera, " The Devil end Daniel Webster " by Douglas Moore and Stephen Vincent Benet. Both groups then combined their talents for the presentation of Handel ' s " Messiah. " In the spring of the year the Touring Choir had the opportunity to travel through the southeastern section of the United States.

The Monday chapel program started the week off by enlightening the Milligan girls as to their part in the pro- ceedings. Daily court sessions, a night at the " Speak-Easy, " and a concert high- lighted the week. The Roaring Twenties Personality Parade, with such celebrities as Ethel Barrymore, Al Jolson, and Helen Morgan, added a gay finish to a successful week. Twirp Week for 1960 was sponsored by the Junior Class. Above: The Keynotes Below: Make up your mind Above: Roy ' n ' Pat — in disguise! Below: Go fo it, Helen! FOUNDER ' S DAY Both students and alumni anticipate Founder ' s Day, Milligan ' s home- coming weekend. This is the time when friends reunite on the campus of their " old " Alma Mater. The weekend opens with a varsity-alumni basket- ball game. The grounds boast of decorations made by the classes and school organizations. The gala weekend culminates in the selection of the Founder ' s Daughter at the annual banquet. She embodies the fine Christian character which Josephus Hopwood, Milligan ' s founder, would wish to attribute to his daughter.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools is the regional ac- crediting association for more than 240 four-year colleges located in eleven southern states. These colleges set high standards for this association and act together to keep the quality of education at a high level. This gives the student assur- ance that his work at one institution will be recognized at another. Milligan, there- fore, is happy in the knowledge that work done here is recognized and will transfer.

The 1960-61 Buffs had trouble getting started, and because of in- juries and a combination of many other factors they never did work up to the great potentiality which was theirs. It was a hard-luck year for the Thundering Herd, but they fought well enough to maintain the loyalty of enthusiastic Milligan fans. Experienced seniors, Charley Tester, Lew Taylor, and " Moose " Williams added to the team ' s appearance once more and will be missed by both the team and the fans next season. Others on the team who saw plenty of action were Jerry Frasure, Paul Hall, and Terry Black. One of the highlights of the season was the game at Tusculum where the Buffs stormed from behind to outplay the " noisy " Pioneers 67-64. 64 Above: Don ' t Shoot! I give up!

The 1961 addition of the Thundering Herd cinder team should be a speedy, well-balanced club, strong with depth in many of the events. Because of the early press date the schedules, much less the season record itself, hod not been announced for any of the spring sports. This year, how- ever, there ore several bright spots of encouragement. The Buffs will have a better track and facilities for the field events due to the improvement of Anglin Field, where the thinclods resume meet competition after several years of running in the Johnson City Stadium.

In the fall the boys played tennis and football with the defending champs, the Gamecocks, who are again reigning supreme. The girls went at it in volleyball with Nancy Sahli ' s team coming out on top. In the winter both boys and girls played basketball with a championship tournament at the close of the season. The springtime brought out baseball for the fellows and softball for the girls. Also throughout the year at different times there were bowling, swimming, badminton, ping-pong, wrest- ling, golf, and weight-lifting with " heavy-weight " J. D. Murphy walking off with all top honor trophies — completely unnoticed, until the judges discovered the missing prizes. The Intramural Council did a fine job and deserves a vote of thanks.
