Chapel Crew Every student who has ever attended a con- vocation service has ex- perienced the fine w ork- manship of the ChapeJ Crew. The lighting, sound, stagework, and noise that the Chapel Crew provides for Convocation, con- certs, movies and shows are beyond compare. This year, the Chapel Crew in- stalled a new ca ble in the building and received new shirts from Dr. Dowd for their efforts.

Movies were selected according to the polled expressions of students. Each person who had a bright green sticker on his student I.D. was admitted to the functions free of charge. This method of raising money was quite a success. 71 Milligan College Chorale Milligan College Chorale. First row, left to right: Marilyn Harper, Mary Lee Dyer, Rosemary Birkel, Susan Keller.

This year Hart had a new resident, Mrs. Millar. Anna Wiley, President, en- couraged each dorm counsellor to plan section parties, which included jaunts to " Maxine ' s, " pizza parties and pretzel bakes in the kitchen. Christmas found a large number of girls (and guys) in the main lobby, decorating the tree and door and ta- bles and clock and shrubs (?). The girls also provided a family with all the trimmings for a Christmas feast. Other activities included an all-dorm camp-out, dorm devotions and spring cleaning in the main lobby.

Be- cause of the dorm coun- cil ' s hard work, under the leadership of the Presi- dent lulie McNett and Head Resident Mrs. Rob- inson, the cushions have been recovered and the drapes have been cleaned. Money was raised for these projects through Bake Sales and a Christ- mas Bizarre. The dorm residents also partici- pated in the Toys for Tots drive and assisted a needy family at Christmas.

Milligan Well Represented By Traveling Singing Groups In an earnest effort to spread the gospel through music, four singing groups from Milligan have been hard at work during the past year. During the summer of 1975 the groups " God ' s Hands, " " Great Exchange, " and " Sound Idea " traveled throughout the nation, per- forming nightly concerts in numerous churches. " God ' s Hands " and " Sound Idea, " supported financially by the school, were responsible for attracting many prospective students through their appearances at church camps. Al- though they received the financing from private pledges and were not technically representing the school, " Great Exchange " was also instrumental in exemplifying the high caliber of people which make up the body of Milli- gan College. In the fall of 1975 a group intended to present Milligan to area high school audiences came into existence. " Holi- day " performed in numerous high schools and also pro- vided entertainment for the 1976 Miss Johnson City Pag- eant. Because of the group ' s strong testimony for Christ, " Holiday " was asked to perform on the program of the North American Christian Convention in Denver, Colorado. r --, if .vi- — iiiiiiMirr ifc " xT " God ' s Hands.

Yet our purpose in creating this book is that the memories which are stirred by this collection of pictures and thoughts will never end. This is our gift to you. We have all experienced different things at Milligan— some wonderful things, some unpleasant things. If, in years to come, you flip through these pages and are able to relive the pleasantries, we have succeeded. It is traditional for the editor to thank the staff; yet a mere " thank you " to the 1975-76 Buffalo Staff would be inadequate. Without their assistance, this book would be 160 blank pages. They taught me all I know. Thank you, Ed Charlton, for your patience with me, expertise with the camera, your long hard hours in the dark room and your listening ability. Shumpei Kato, for your stick-to-itiveness in taking faculty pictures, your cooperation in taking pictures at Godspell and your beautiful pictures in the introduction. Tim Brady, for your dedication to the Senior Section, unique ideas and photographic assistance. Jan Jones, for being an understanding and sympathetic roommate, for helping out at deadline time, for your ideas and beautiful smile. Nancy Lauyer, for your initiative and unwavering dependability as the Business Manager. Eric Duggins, for your smiling face and beautiful artistic expressions. Trisha Scott, for your devotion to the Senior Section and willingness to work. Kitty Becker, for your courage to stay in the Staff room overnight and for having the stamina to plow through twenty years of Student Council minutes. Linda Gindlesperger, for your creative talents with layout sheets, hearts and balloon men. Karen Huber, for your hard work on Clubs and Organizations. Linda Horn, for your knowl edge of the baseball team and work as Sports Editor. Nancy Morgan, for your sweet words of encouragement and typewriter. Val Cook, for your ideas, knowledge of yearbook methodology and Student Life section. B(;cky Coleman, for your loyalty, patience and flying fingers on the typewriter. Mark Reidel, for your assistance on ads and Student Life. Linda Cooper, for your successfulness as an Ad salesman and friendship. Barb Elliott, for your great cartoons. Mr. Wright, for listening to my gripes and problems. Mr. Moore, for clearing up all the misunderstandings and foul-ups. Especially Ron Wempe, for the chocolate bars. Super Dummy T-shirt, your patience and willingness to let me drive your jaguar. Even though these two individuals were not directly connected with the yearbook, I offer my special thanks to Mrs. Fontaine, who has encouraged me in all my efforts, and Dr. Read, a beautiful person. May Milligan College always remember the great class of 1976. Graduated, Anna Wiley Editor HOSPITAL PHARMACY Alcamp Shell " The DRIVE-IN Pharmacy ' s Service Station 602 N.
