Page Fourteen SCHOOL OF LIBERAL ARTS Dean Rogers The School of Liberal Arts represents that sort of training in which the development of character is uppermost. Its value in all courses is attested by the fact that Language, Science and Philosophy are required in every course in the college. The student who takes the Liberal Arts course is allowed elec- tives in any school of the college; but he is required to take some work in Language, Science, History, Philosophy, and Mathematics. To give him a somewhat thorough knowledge of one subject, he is required to select a sub- ject for his major, which he pursues for the entire four years. Thus he ac- quires the general culture which is valuable to any person in social life, and is also fitted to teach, or to continue in special training for some other pro- fession. Oh kingly halls!

" Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep. " — Sociology Class Pagr Twenty 1HE SCHOOL OF PEDAGOGY The study of Pedagogy in a college is of great advantage to the pros- pective teacher for many reasons. Here the teacher can not only secure the training in Child Study, the Art of Teaching, and other pedagogical subjects, but at the same time, he can be studying other subjects, which will give him a fund of knowledge from which to enrich his teaching. The courses in Pedagogy are also convenient electives for those who expect to teach the sub- ject in which they are specializing. Such persons need training in general educational problems as well as in the problems of their special subjects. These teachers ' training courses, w hich are given usually by some instructor in the special subject, are also of great value to the student who wishes to teach his specialty.

Paqe Twenty-two THE SCHOOL OF COMMERCE AND FINANCE The School of Commerce and Finance fills one of the insistent demands of today for trained business men. The knowledge which could once lie gained only by serving from errand boy up to junior partner, is now recorded from the experience of other men and becomes a valuable aid to the embryo business man. The student of Economics, Public Finance, Sociology, Ele- mentary Law. and kindred subjects, is getting a vision of his place in the world ' s work. This department has a Museum and Library that are growing. Its standards are high, and the faculty strives to have the students reach them. Render to them, therefore, all their " dues.

Page Twenty-five THE SCHOOL OF DOMESTIC ECONOMY Domestic Economy is another of the courses which is growing in pop- ularity, and calling persistently for better equipment. Here the girls learn not only cooking and sewing, but how tc care for the house in every respect; also how to care for the sick, and prepare their food. They are taught how to manage the household as wiseely and as economically as possible — surely a profitable tiling. Besides the girls win; are specializing in Domestic Econ- omy, there are man)- from other schools who find Domestic Science or Domes- tic Art interesting and valuable elective subjects.

Formerly it was thought that any book-lover would make a good librarian. But unlike the book-lover, who is commonly interested in only one class of books, the librarian must have a knowledge of, and an interest in, all sorts of reading matter. The ideal librarian knows literally " Something about everything, and everything about something. " " Something " in the latter case means the classification of books, and the ways of using them fur the convenience of the public. The librarian must be able to answer questions on any subject, from " Where can ] get a bibliography of Egyptian Archeol- ogy, " to " What is the average length of life of a goose. " Needless to say, the librarian must have also the ability to understand people, and to adapt herself to their needs. She must lie prepared in all ways to act as a helper f the people. The Library courses at Millikin include the History of Libraries, refer- ence work, children ' s work, cataloging, and the selecting and reviewing of books. " I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Page Twenty-nine THE SCHOOL OF FINE AND APPLIED ARTS Tlie Millikin School of Fine and Applied Arts is an ideal place for a serious study of art, whether with the brush, chisel, or modeling " tool. His- tory, practice, and theory are interlaced with a carefully selected numher of college courses, leading to a Bachelor ' s degree, with distinction in the specialty. The thoroughness of the work in the past, and the steady increase in the registration, prove the calibre of the work done here. Personal attention and individual interest are virtues in a school of medium size that crowded studios must of necessity overlook. Seven large studios and workshops, open to the needs of painting, sculpture, pottery, copper and silver smithing, and keramics, give the student ample opportunity to specialize. With these, a healthy and picturesque environment adds to make this school significant for the study of Fine Arts. William M. Hekking " A still, small voice. " — Hila Ayres.

Page Thirty-one THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING The School of Engineering " is attended by men who are preparing " to become Civil, Mechanical, or Electrical Engineers. Since the Junior and Senior years have been dropped, it is possible to give only the general sub- jects which are required for all these departments. The work of the first two years, however, is planned so that the student who completes them can enter any regular school of Engineering ' as a Junior student. Students who take their first two years here, have more personal attention than can be given in the crowded lower classes of the large technical schools. Hence they have the opportunity for getting thorough foundation work. It is hoped that very soon some plan may be adopted by which the students may alternate their study with periods of actual shop work so that they may have both theoretical and actual training.

Power Plant is one of the busiest and most important departments of the university, for from it is supplied all the heat, light and power for our entire group of buildings. The Plant supplied more steam for heat this winter than ever before, because of the addition of the new Conservatory of Music. The present equipment consists of a battery of four one hundred and twenty-five horse power boil- ers and two directly connected generators, each hav- ing a capacity respectively of ninety and forty horse power. A splendid supplement to the equipment this year was a forty horse power motor generator set. This enables the plant to furnish three phase alternating current for light and power in the two new buildings. Other improvements in the form of switchboards, pumps, etc., have been added, which will greatly facilitate the work of the plant and help to retain the plant ' s splendid record of service. Erroll V. Chapman, better known as " Chappie, " is the good-natured chief engineer, who is now serving his fourth successful year in that position. Several years ago he was a student in the J. M. U. engineering department. Harry Smallwood, a former student in the uni- versity, is the capable assistant engineer.

The splendid new Gym makes better and more agreeable work possible, both for the athletic teams, and for the regular classes. If yon wish to know what the students think of Coach Ashmore, yon need only listen to the deafening response which follows Tenison ' s " Nine rahs for Ash ! " Miss Grubel ' s turn comes in May, when her classes present in the Maypole, on the athletic field, the results of their year ' s training. The Maypole has become an annual event, and is one of the most artistic entertainments of the year. In these attractive ways, the results of the hours of hard labor on the field or in the Gym contribute a large share to the pleasures of college life. Gymnasium " I have no other but a woman ' s reason, I think him so, because I think him so. " — Florence Baird. Page Thirty-seven Maypole Festivities THE ACADEMY The Academy of the James Millikin Univer- sity offers a thoro four year course as the usual foundation for entrance to College. It has shown a satisfactory growth from year to year, and has proven itself an important factor in the life of the institution. The instruction in the Academy is given by a special corps of teachers supplement- ed by members of the College faculty. Its schol- astic standing " has been maintained and gradually raised. Each class is organized and makes its own rules of government. Several years ago the Adelphic Literary Society, a purely Academic or- ganization, was formed. It has done much to unite the Academy and bring together the classes in a common interest. The students enjoy a great number of the privileges of the College students, and are permitted to enter all the gen- eral organizations. Thus we have two representatives in the Student Coun- cil, one from the fourth year class and one from the Adelphic Literary Soci- ety. There is also one representative of the Academy on the Gym Fund Committee. The social side of the Academy is enthusiastically cultivated. Thus each class has its own events ; the Literary Society has had many delightful affairs ; each year the third year class entertains the graduating class, the latter in turn gives a farewell reception to the Whole Academy and the Seniors of the College. Recently, due to continual reiteration of a few, the question of retaining the Academy has been thoroly discussed, resulting in the reply definitely made by the powers that lie, that the Academy is to be retained and probably given special quarters, at the earliest possible moment. It is of value to the College in several ways. It supports the College activities, and attracts many who later enter college, and it contributes much to the making of " A Greater Millikin.

Page Forty-three MILLIKIN CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC MiHikin Conservatory of Music was organiyed at the opening of the University. September, 1903, by Hermann H. Kaeuper, the present director. In ten years the development has been remarkable, not only in numbers of students, out in artistic results. The quality of teaching and the artistic and educational results accomplished have been the most conspicuous features. The highest standards have been kept con- stantly before the students. The enrollment has been most interesting in the gradual development from the first year, when 158 students were registered, to the past season when 614 were enrolled. This year the total enrollment will probably reach 700. The object of Millikin Conservatory is not only the diffusion of musical knowledge, but also the development and refinement of the minds, characters and taste of its students. The institution attempts for its pupils superior proficiency by a well regu- lated and scientific plan of instruction, not only for those who wish to devote them- selves to music as artists and teachers, but also for amateurs whose chief object is to acquire a correct knowledge of music. Students have every advantage which pri- vate instruction offers, with many additional ones. Such branches of study as har- mony, counterpoint, composition, ear training and sight reading, history of music, psychology of music, and so forth, can only be taught satisfactorily in a college or large school. These courses are essential for serious students of music and most of them are offered free of charge in this Conservatory. This is not a money making institution. That i why it gives so much free instruction and many other advantages. The fees are one-third to one-half those charged for similar instruction in Boston and New York. As a part of a Christian university the Conservatory students enjoy a wholesome character-building environment which is one of the most valuable factors in a student ' s education. The James Millikin University campus is noted for its great beauty and a fine college spirit exists among the students. There are many reasons why Millikin Conservatory is an ideal place for music study. THE NEW CONSERVATORY BUILDING Millikin Conservatory of Music is now located in the artistic and homelike new building, erected by the Trustees of the estate of Mr. James Millikin. rhe University ' s worthy founder and benefactor. The building contains eighty-two roems and a recital hall. On entering the build- ing one is impressed by the refined dignity of line and color in the corridor and admin- istration rooms. On the first floor, in addition to several teaching rooms and the recital hall, are the library, the general office and offices of the director and secretary. The indirect lighting system used thruout the main floor has proved an advantage of great beauty. The library in eucalyptus wod. finished in its natural color, with walls in a beautiful tone of green, is a room of rare beauty. The entire effect, with old English furniture and the charming ingle nook with it fireplace of tapestry brick, makes an inspirational place for study. The director ' s office witli its massive furniture and large bay windows is unusually attractive. The recital hall for recitals, public performance classes and lectures, has a seating capacity of two hundred. This room is considered a gem of art with its beautiful leaded-glass windows and its fine colors of gray and brown in the wood work and walls. The wood is bird ' s-eye maple finished in silver gray. The platform presents a charmingly designed Gothic screen back of the two grand pianos. This room im- presses with an atmosphere of dignified refinement and peace. The basement, second and third floor rooms are for class and private teaching and practice purposes. The interior is Gothic in style. Much investigation was necessarj- to obtain the best results in tone proofing, ventilating, heating and accoustics. Air. Kaeuper, tin- director, spent months in correspondence and visits to various conservatories to inves- tigate conditions. He also corresponded with leading conservatories in Europe and with noted scientists in America and in Europe who have given special study to the problem of tone proof construction. Every possible precaution has been taken to avoid the faults of other conser- vatories and make use of their good points, so that the building is very beautiful, complete and effective.

Page Fifty-eight Seen Thru the Looking- Glass in Wonderland ( With profuse apologies to Lewis Carroll ' s charming books.) " Alice, " said the Duchess, " do the pawns always make such a noise? " " My dear Duchess, " replied Alice, " this is a paiticularly robust set, Number 1913, and the Red Knight tells me that they are selecting their officers. " The Duchess fanned herself. " What are the returns? " said she. " Just a moment. Duchess. The Red Knight is coming with fresh news. " Alice rushed forward to meet him. The Duchess stamped her foot. " Will you mind me? " she screeched. " I ' d like to know, too. " Alice held out to her a slip of paper. " Hold it up to the Mirror, " commanded the Duchess, " and don ' t crowd me. " This is what the Mirror showed: " tnediserP nnuD eihcrA yraterceS noslohciN htuR tnediserP eciV egaP neleH rerusaerT yremogtnoM luaP slahsraM nothgierC .0 — tteffoM neleH — nomdeR mossolB " " Umph, " grunted the Duchess, " I hope they behave themselves. Why don ' t you carry me on? If you break that Mirror, " she screamed to a trembling page, " I ' ll never let you look in it again. " Alice and the Red Knight smiled. The White Rabbit consulted his watch. " Thirteen after nineteen. I shall cer- tainly be late for my bowl of noodle soup if that Alice person doesn ' t come — ah, there you are. " He grasped the little girl ' s hand in his neat white paw and they scurried off. " Where are we going? " gasped Alice. " To eat noodle soup, of course. How do you suppose we ' d get our news if we didn ' t? " snapped the Rabbit. Alice was silent and suffered herself to De dragged to a stool before a long counter. " She doesn ' t need to know the latest, " said the Rabbit to the waiter, a March Hare. " Besides, I don ' t suppose she can read. " Alice looked up. " I too can, " she said. " I ' ve been thru the second year ' s reader. " With a little aid from the Rabbit she made out in the tiny blue and gold letters of her soup: Taft S. Thayer Sherman Gertrude Henry Knox E. Smith " MacVeagh H. Munch Dickinson and Stimson Kriege and Lewis " What does that mean? " she asked. " She doesn ' t know! " gasped the March Hare, and " She doesn ' t know! " echoed other patrons. " Well, my dear, I shall have to tell you, " said the Rabbit. " Those first names were those of the president, vice president, secretary of state, secretary of the treas- ury, and two secretaries of war some few years since in the great and noble country of America and the other names were those of some of the most important citizens of Warren 1913 two years ago. " " I see, " mused Alice. " I ' ve heard of America before. " " Yes? " queried the Rabbit politely. " Where does all that silence come from? " inquired the Duchess. " The Dodo Bird tells me it is coming from District 1913, the most peaceful spot in all this blue and white country, " replied Alice. " The March Hare and Father William are playing checkers, he says. " " Et cetera. " — Prof. Meek. Page Fifty-nine " Who is in Father William ' s king row? Here, take the Mirror and climb up an see. " Alice peered over the edge of the glass. " Two men on the first block, " said she. " They ' ve had to take Lovely Lewis away. ' " Who is in the king row? " The Duchess ' tones were ominous. " Yes ' m, " said Alice hastily. " An elegant Smith, a Helen Pink Page, an Emerald Davis, and an Ebony Spence. " " That will do! " The Duchess jerked Alice ' s skirt. " Come down, I tell you! " Hut Alice paid no heed. " Oh! dear Duchess, do climb up and watch them, " she squealed. " The game ' s over and all the men are having a most beautiful time. " And the Duchess, forgetting her dignity, clambered up. " It does look rather nice, " said she. " All those pink and green vines — and, Alice, on my soul, that ' s a real Lady Gregory play and a regular old country reel. 1 haven ' t seen such since 1 left the Emerald Isle. Who are the guests? " " Please, " said the wriggling eel who had escaped Father William for the nonce, " it ' s the red and white district Number 1912. " " Thanks awf ' ly, " said Alice. " Ah, don ' t get down Duchess. It ' s most exciting. They ' re taking nineteen blue-and-whites and making a board and — my goodness, they took off the top one and made a match with her! " " Well, did you ever? " scolded the Duchess. " My word! " exclaimed Alice. " What do you call those? " " Oh, it ' s one of the pawns ' costumes, " said the Red Knight. " They call ' em most anything, but I believe cap and gown is correct. Cute, aren ' t they? Style No. 1913, I think they are. " He turned the page. " If the Duchess catches you with her pawn book, " whispered Alice, " but she won ' t unless I tell, and I won ' t if you let me see too. " " Come on then, " the Red Knight replied. " Those are cunning reception togs, " remarked Alice. " What v. pretty line! Do you know where and who all these pawns are? " " That one your thumb ' s smudging is the very top pawn — he ' s called — it isn ' t scissors — it ' s Scherer. That next one ' s a lady pawn — you mustn ' t rub your fingers over ' em that way, yes, that ' s Viola Ameling — she ' s a bully good cook. That round little one ' s Baby Helen (she ' s a mighty nice little pawn) and that black looking one ' s — let ' s see — chew, chaw, no — O yes, it ' s Munch, that ' s his name — he ' s a pretty fair sort of a pawn — and that tall one over there, she ' s called Edner Davis and she ' s a dandy. " " Unhuh, thanks, " said Alice. " Who ' s that pretty pawn just dusting round yonder? " Well, she ' s the leading lady in their play and she was chosen to take the place of a Helen pink pawn they made a match with — her name ' s Laura O. Kriege — some of ' em call her O ' Kriege. " " Who ' s the blond pawn who ' s trotting round with her? and that one with the full money bag, and that pawn with a big pie and a package of photos? " " Sh, Alice, the Duchess is coming. " In a low voice the Red Knight continued, " The girl pawn ' s named Morgan, she helps with the carpenter work on the board, and that first pawn runs a student-pawn book-shop, he ' s getting rich, and that last pawn is helping get out a book, he ' s an awful hungry fellow, he ate — Well, all that set of 1913 pawns are mighty fine. " " Good evening. Duchess, " chorused Alice and the Red Knight as innocently as if they weren ' t sitting on her cherished Pawn-book. —MARY PRESTLEY.

Page Sixty-five THE LIFE AND WORKS OF THE JUNIOR CLASS It is not the purpose of the present work to set before the public the startling fact that " as green and confused Freshmen, we first entered the halls of our Alma Mater on September twelfth, nineteen hundred and whatever-it-may-be, " or that " we have steadily developed into the greatest and grandest class the college has ever pro- duced. " While there is ample precedent for such a statement, as you will no doubt agree, yet I have determined to omit it. For this step I shall adduce two reasons: first, that if you have the habit of clear thought, you wiil be able to deduce the fact that we were once Freshmen frcm the fact that we are now Juniors, and, second, that the peerless excellence of the class is so obvious as to require no demonstration. Having saved space by omitting the above-mentioned statements, I shall. I think, proceed to a brief recapitulation of the facts of our career. We were fortunate enough to have in our Freshman year two faculty advisers exceeding capable of character molding. When they kindly (and firmly) invited us to a class party, we went, and were improved, and what ' s more, had a good time. We had ACTIVITIES in our class. There was the Freshman debate. — but then it won ' t do to be too vainglorious. And when we were Sophomores we won the Freshman-Sophomore contest, of course. We had two jolly parties that year. Once our faculty advisers entertained us pleasant- ly, and once our president did the honors. The boys were really very good about bringing the girls! Now that we are Juniors, we are giving our attention to matters of policy and grave import, but our universal plans are not yet ripe for giving to the world. Mean- while we have had one charming party in the home of our faculty adviser, and as this goes to press, or rather, into the hands of the staff, we are on the eve of another friendly gathering under the auspices and roof-tree of our president. This is not pre- cisely history, I confess; but it offers too spicy a thrill to be passed up. For it is to be a leap-year party, and the class includes fourteen men and fort} ' women! Here, then, is a smattering of our history to date. Yes, of course it stops in the most interesting part. Rut the most important things have not been said and probably can ' t be. These are, — what every person in our class has meant to every other person in it. just how much class organization, in comparison with other connections, has contributed to its members, just what the personality of the Junior class is. and what it shall signify. It would do no good to talk much of these things. Rut we hope to put them in definite visible form before you. —FAY FISHER. " She sloops (from necessity) to conquer. " — Louise Naber.

Pikjc Seventy-one 1915 " I am the historian ' s ink-bottle. How glad I am that 1 am an ink-bottle instead of a paste-pot or a blotter or something else, because if I were anything else I would never have learned about this thoroly interesting class of 1915 at James Millikin University. You see I get all my information from the pen. the big black pen used by the historian in writing the chronicles of her class. Every time the pen comes to me for a fresh supply of ink, he tells me all that he has just finished writing. " Well do I remember how weary the poor pen became when he wrote down the class roll of those Freshmen. There were one hundred and fifty-six valiant lads and lassies in the class, and tho he is big and strong, the pen was well-nigh exhausted by the time he had written their names and the account of the lengthy and exciting session when Ralph Wise was elected president. " Then such an important thing happened. The historian became greatly worked-up and aroused when she wrote about this. You see, I can watch her all the time she writes. There was a big contest between the Freshmen and Sophomores, to decide their athletic supremacy. Altho the Sophomores won, the loyal Freshmen waved their crimson and black banners till their arms ached, and yelled like Comanche Indians. I was really disgusted. The historian was hoarse all the next day. More than this every member of the class soon appeared wearing a little black hat with a crimson band as proudly as tho it were a Gainsborough or an opera hat. " The next events chronicled were both social ones. My friend, the red-ink-bottle, was almost used up to make a poster for the college tea when the Freshman clas was host. Then there was the class party held in the gymnasium. The pen was lucky enough to be there, since the historian took him along to use in the little autograph books. " After a long summer vacation the class met again in September, 1912, and gaily greeted each other as Sophomores. You should have seen the historian throw out her chest as she wrote the word " Sophomores. " They were mighty sorry that all of their former classmates had not seen fit to return to Millikin for a second year, but they felt that the eighty-seven who did come back were perfectly capable of pushing on the name and fame of 1915. " The historian surely did try to act dignified as she wrote about their class election. Evidently they felt that it was a very important thing this year because the election was carried on in a very calm and cool-headed manner, with this result: president, George Lillich; vice-president, Ruth McMennamy; secretary, Rowena Hudson; treasurer and gymnasium fund representative, Carl Pritchett. " Plans for a second Freshman-Sophomore contest were immediately begun. Nine- teen-fifteen swore a solemn oath to wipe out all traces of their former defeat, and how gloriously they did it! Such a victory and such a contest! The Seniors and of course the class faculty advisers, Doctor Hessler and Professor Mills, were more than glad to wear the crimson and black of the Sophs. Every event was a thriller, especially the girls ' potato race and the tug-of-war, both of which 1915 won. She grew visibly excited as she wrote about the contest. She rummaged about in her desk till she found the colors she had worn that day. Then, waving them wildly about, she gave an ' Oskey-wow-wow ' 15! ' then ' Nine rahs for ' 15! ' and finished with an ' Allah Rah. ' The pen and I were positively shocked at such a performance, but 1 am learning that one never knows what to expect from a modern college girl. " The victory in the contest fired the class with enthusiasm and it was not long until a class basket-ball schedule was arranged. Every once in a while the pen tells me of some basket-ball victory he records. The class has been so happy this year that I was surprised and disappointed one day when the his torian came to the desk and wrote something in a very half-hearted way. She looked so downcast and forlorn that I could hardly wait for the pen to tell me about it. At last I learned that the sorrow was because the student-council had decreed that the Sophomore class should have no class emblem. But it wasn ' t long before happiness reigned and the historian was smiling again, for they all realized that this very act of the student-council put 1915 in a class by itself!

Page Seventy-nine CLASS OF 1916 Our class of 1916 was no more verdant than other Freshman classes during the first few days of its existence. However, the supercilious Sophomores were heard to whisper that we were fresher than usual, and that someone ought to sprinkle salt on us. We managed fairly well, barring a few blunders about class rooms, and when the time came for us to organize an unbiased observer might have mistaken us for Seniors. Under the able advisership of Professor Risley, we used the preferential system of voting most successfully. We chose Judson Shurtz for our president, Laura B. Howenstine for vice president, Helen Westervelt for secretary, and Kenneth High for treasurer. Without delay the permanent committees were appointed, and soon our ship of state was sailing smoothly along. And now a little flutter of excitement stirred thru the class. The Freshmen and the Sophomores were to have a wall-scaling contest to decide which was the stronger! We turned out in large numbers, and cheered until we were hoarse, but even the most valiant must sometimes lose. The wall-scaling contest went to the Sophomores, as did the tug-of-war. Our girls confidently expected to win the potato race, but alas, they did not! In the basket-ball contest alone did we gain victor} ' ; but O! ye Fresh- men to come, wait until next year! We find our " chapelettes " great fun. Since we are of the most Importance, we Freshmen hold ours in the chapel. After we have dealt with our business, we practice Millikin songs, or have short programs. Last January, examinations settled down upon us like a cloud and we poor Freshmen crammed for all we were worth. But, in the words of De Ouincey. " What a revulsion, what a resurrection of the spirit, " when the grades were out! Instead of the worried anxious frowns of exam week, relieved and happy smiles wreathed our faces. Perhaps we were better students than we thot we were! And now as we review the year nearly at an end, we are sorry that it is almost gone. There have been failures as well as successes, and with every failure we have learned something. As the class of 1916 becomes stronger and more noble, we can look back upon our Freshman year satisfied with the progress we have made, and rest content with the knowledge that our class, the class of 1916, is increasing the glory of Millikin year by year. —LAURA WEILEPP.

It is situated just a little northeast of the main group of buildings, in the most con- venient and artistic spot possible. During the six years of its use, the number of girls living in it lias kept increasing, and this year, sixty girls have occupied practically all the available rooms in the building. The majority of these girls are students in the College proper, although there are some Academy girls, and some who study only music. Several teachers also make their De- catur home at Aston Hall. Mrs. W alker, the Dean of Women, is the mother of the large household, and docs her part in making the Hall a home-like place. ' No! N o! I am as ugly as a bear! " — Nobody. Page Eighty-seven ASTON HALL Continued In a social way, Aston Hall contributes a large share to the college girl ' s life. Two receptions are given every year — one in the fall, and one on Wash- ington ' s birthday. On these occasions, all the girls keep open house to the other students and teachers. There are also many frolics among the girls themselves, which prevent any possible dulness in their lives. Living in Aston Hall is a large factor in a girl ' s development. It gives to the girl whose interests are confined to her own clique, a chance to know and value the good cmalities of all kinds of girls; and to the self-conscious and awkward girl, it gives the ability to forget herself in community life. It helps to g ' ive a girl that poise which is one of the most valuable results of college training.

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION OFFICERS President Vice President Secretary-Treasurer Dr. Zink Sanders, ' 07 . . . . Miss Ada E. Lindsay, ' 05 Mrs. Daisy Payne Young, ' 07 At the last meeting of the association, June, 1912, each member resolved to put forth one mighty effort this year to boost Millikin. While the associ- ation is growing in numbers and strength year by year, yet we are still in our swaddling clothes. The years have not been sufficient for any of us to acquire wealth, with which to help our Alma Mater in a financial way; the time since we left the class room has be en too brief for any to rise to great influence which we might use to induce others to help, but we can use our small talents in interesting fine young men and women in the institution, in persuading them to enroll in its classes, and in assisting them in all college activities; in a word, to build up a strong student body, and this is what the association is striving " to do. The local members of the association, together with former students who were in attendance a year, have organized a club, the Millikin Club, whose purpose is to co-operate with the association, to keep the local members in touch with one another and the fires of loyalty to our Alma Mater burning bright, to assure the management we are in sympathy with what they strive to do, and to remind the students, faculty and community at large that we are alert to every opportunity to make a " Greater Millikin.

Walter Rogers Harold Osgood Blanche Hayes Samuel Tucker The Literary League was organized on March 15, 1909, at a joint meeting of the Orlandian and Philomathean Literary Societies. Its purpose is to comrol joint enter- prises and to dispose of such other matters as concern both societies. Its chief business is the control of the inter-society contest. This contest, a strictly inter-society affair, has always been held during the month of December of each year. This year, however, the time for the contest was changed to the month of January. This was considered a much better plan since it extended the time of preparation for the contestants and helped to keep up interest in the societies. The Literary League has also taken up the control of the college and inter- collegiate debates. It is planning to bring noted speakers and lecturers to the Univer- sity in the future. With this end in view, the League made a start this year, by bringing Dr. Black to Millikin, to deliver a lecture. Besides this, joint programs are held during the year under the supervision of the League.

Page Hundred Eighteen THE ARTISAN ' S GUILD With a certain degree of sadness we announce the fact that the old Arts and Crafts Society is dead. Dead and almost forgotten, for we have put off our mourning and are now welcoming a new society, the Artisans ' Guild. On February 26th, the new society was given a " big feed. " Between sixty and seventy students of the Fine and Applied Arts Department were present and after the " big feed " the officers of the new society were elected as follows: President - - - — Floyd Stables Vice President - - - Sarah Dale Treasurer , Ivra Shaw Secretary - - - - Louise Naber A board of twelve directors was appointed and these with the officers are to be the nucleus around which the society will be built. The purpose of the society is to bring the students of this department into a closer relationship with each other, and thus, by organization, to bring prominent people here to lecture in the interest of Art. The meetings, which are held every two weeks, are conducted in an informal way. Each meeting is devoted to some line of vocational work, such as the making of mono- types, etchings, and printing. " And lie was nut rig it fat 1 undertake , But looked holwe and ther-to sobrely! ' — W. A. Reynolds. Page Hundred Nineteen THE KAPPA SOCIETY The Kappa Society is an organization, composed of high honor graduates of the University, and formed for the purpose of increasing interest in scholarship. The charter members are the class of 1909. Graduates who have completed at least two years of their course in the James Millikin University, and who have attained an average of 92 per cent are eligible to membership. The meetings are held annually, on commencement day. At that time a banquet is given; and following it, some subject pertaining to educational problems is pre- sented. Dr. T. W. Galloway delivered a most interesting address at the last meeting. In order to bring the Kappa Society into closer touch with the student body and to make its influence felt throughout the whole school year, at one of the chapel exer- cises last fall, those members of the Senior class who had a high honor average for the three years ' work were presented with a silver key. In June, if they still maintain their high standing, they will be permitted to wear the gold key, the emblem of the society. Those who were thus honored were: Esther Lou Bergen, Laura Kriege, Effie Morgan, Mary Prestley, and Maude Yarnell. The present officers of the society are: Dean J. D. Rogers has been patron of the Kappa Society since its organization. Those who have fulfilled the requirements and have been admitted to membership are : Secretary Treasurer President Vice President .... Lucile M. Bragg Edgar H. Allen Rhoda Feme Pan- Alice P.

Pane Hundred Fifty-three MYERS, CAPTAIN Myers performed last spring for his third year as a member of the Millikin track team and, as in years past, proved a consistent point winner in the weight. A steady worker, and careful trainer, Myers made an excellent captain of the team represent- ing Millikin in this branch of athletics. His graduation in June left the track team minus a valuable man. TENISON, CAPTAIN-ELECT For two years " Sam " has been without a peer in the minor colleges in the dash events. This year the future captain hung up a new record in the 220 yard event in the annual meet in Peoria. His time in the event was 22 3-5 seconds. Sam will make a good leader this spring. E. W. SMITH " Ed " is a familiar figure on the Millikin track. The dashes and middle distances are old favorites with him. " Ed " is a gritty quarter-miler, and has won many points for Millikin in this event as well as the dashes. PINKSTAFF " Pink " is a good man on the hurdles, par- ticularly the low variety. His four years of experience have given him time to develop excellent form on the event which he has used to good advantage in many races. There are hut few better men in the minor colleges. Page Hundred Fifty-four COOPER Cooper is an excellent man with hammer and discus. He had considerable experience in high school and made the te am in his Freshman year in University. This, his second year at Millikin, gave him fuller op- portunity to show his ability which he did, placing first in his events in several meets, including a first in the discus in the Inter- collegiate.

" Wagnerian " form. With his old black bat the captain participated in many a " club- bing " rally which won for Millikin practi- cally all the games on her schedule. CHYNOWETH, CAPTAIN-ELECT " Chyney, " aside from being an excellent pitcher, showed exceptional ability in the outfield. He was always a valuable asset to the team because of his hitting ability. His cool head and baseball experience will make his a good captain. EVANS " Bob " showed the best form he ever dis- played on the Millikin diamond. His work in the box was of superior quality straight through the season. Reliable critics placed Evans, Chynoweth, and Kaspar on the all- state. KASPAR. Kaspar, the big man with the big stick, is a man of renown in Illinois intercollegiate circles. Fast and heady cn first base, he was also a terror at the plate with a bat. He punctuated every game with home runs and three base hits. Kaspar is one of the best men who ever played first base at Millikin. Page Hundred Sixty WASEM " Wasso " handled the big mit with the understanding of a veteran. The fourth Wasem to play on a Millikin nine, he maintained the Wasem reputation on the diamond. He proved a dependable hitter and " seconded ' ' many of Kaspar ' s long hits. DELANEY " Jim. " the " prep " product, played a man ' s game at third base. A good hot grounder is a square meal for " Jim, " and he whetted his appetite at the expense of many a bat- ter. He played a hard position with excep- tional credit to himself and the team. WILLIAMS As an outfielder and pitchers Williams was valued highly for his hitting ability. His work, coupled with that of the other members of the team, won the reputation for Millikin of being the best hitting team in the minor colleges. STABLES " Stabe " played a fast game in the out- field and was also used with good results at second base. His diminutive size made him a good man at the head of the batting list and his speed on bases caused him to be the bane of many a pitcher. Page Hundred Sixty-one " Smithie " found left field an easy space to cover and pulled down numberless long hits that looked good for two or three bases. A good batter and base runner, he had always to be watched. THE SEASON ' S SCORES April 13— Charleston E. I. S. N. S., 4...

Paye Hundred Sixty-seven EVANS, CAPTAIN " Bob " played his usual stellar game for the third successive season, making a fight- ing leader in a season of hard games. Proficiency with the forward pass which has been one of " Bob ' s " strong points again brought him into the lime light. His de- fensive play was likewise unusually good and his open field work spectacular. CHYNOWETH, CAPTAIN-ELECT " Chyney " proved an invaluable member of the team straight through the season. An unerring judge of the enemy ' s play and a fearless tackier, he was one of the best defensive men in the state. He was a good ground gainer and an excellent punter. The combination of qualities placed him in the first rank of minor college men and he was selected for a place on the all-state eleven. MUNCH Munch, with two years ' previous exper- ience on the Millikin squad, played a gritty game in his position at guard. Lighter than most line-men, Munch used his head and experience to advantage and was the best man in the Millikin line. He was probably the equal of any men he met during the season. SMITH " Smithie " played a crack game at end, both on defensive and offensive play. A forward pass to Smith was practically a certain gain. He was also used, for a time, in the back-field and worked well there. " Smithie " is a fast man and built for foot- ball. He should be one of Captain Chyno- weth ' s right hand men another year. CAMPBELL Campbell was a " beefy " unit in the make- up of the Millikin line. The big man was a hard worker and played in practically every game of the Millikin schedule. His weight stood him in good stead. MYERS " Spoke " Myers was used at center and other line positions. He played good foot- ball whenever in the game. Myers was a splendid tackier and his defensive work was excellent. He will be a valuable member of the squad next year. LICHTENBERGER Raleigh was one of the Freshmen who showed the grit and ability that enabled them to make good. He handled the team well when playing in his position at quarter back and was a star as defensive quarter. What Raleigh lacked in weight he made up in speed and " nerve. " HEMPLE " Hemp " was a whirlwind when cut loose with the ball. A man with a high school reputation as a sprinter, he showed his abil- ity on the football field. Hemple is another of the Freshmen who made good and well deserve the " M ' s " which are theirs. I ' aijc Hundred Sixty-nine DELANEY " Jim " is one of " Ash ' s " own products. He was a " raw " recruit when the season opened last fall, but constant coaching and hard work developed Jim into line bucking back. He has natural talent in the direction of football, and will be a good man in future years. HESSLER " Herb " played a line position with credit in the hardest fought games. He proved to be a plugging, gritty, player whenever called upon. Although only a youngster, he is big and beefy and his strength will be valuable in future Millikin lines.

Han- dicapped by the injury to his hand in the first game, which resulted in blood poison- ing, he nevertheless stuck to the game and was the leading factor in Millikin ' s success. " Stabe " was a worthy captain. EVANS Shifted to a new position at guard " Fight- ing Bob " played remarkable basketball. He was always counted on for a good share of the scoring and never was disappointing. " Bob ' s " consistent work in the tournament, as well as during the season, won him an undisputed place as guard on all the teams selected as all-state. BROWN " Brownie " broke into intercollegiate bas- ketball as if he had played the game all hi liie. He was used at forward in many games. His weight and speed made him a valuable man. lie will probably be seen more of, in future years. REID Reid was a useful man at the " back " guard position. His work of breaking up dribbles and long high passes helped to save a number of victories. This was Reid ' s first year at Millikin and he has not appeared in a .Millikin uniform for the last time. L. KIICK, CAPTAIN-ELECT It has been two years since " Les " first donned a Millikin uniform; but his ab- sence from school last year leaves him elig- ible for some time to come. Kiick was a whirlwind on the floor and a star in the scoring end of the game. Critics picked him for a forward position on the second all-state squad. MILLER Although " Punk " did not enter school until the second semester, he soon caught stride with the rest of the squad and won a permanent berth at center. " Punk ' s " jump at center was a valuable asset. His ability to score and in turn to hold his opponent, was exceptional. He outplayed some of the best men in the tournament and well deserved the selection as center on the second all-state team. WALRAVEN " VValie " played a fighting game whenever used at guard or forward. Fast on the floor, he was excellent at " covering " his man and occasionally slipped in a basket to his own credit.

Page Hundred Seventy-Jive THE INTER- CLASS GAMES Inter-class basketball was inaugurated in the gymnasium during the 1912-13 season, culminating in a victory for the Freshman squad. The four College classes and the Academy were represented in the exciting contests. The climax of this fierce com- petition came Friday, Feb. 7, when, before a large and heatedly partisan crowd, the Freshman and Sophomore teams battled for first place. Juniors and Seniors clinched on the same evening in an equally exciting contest for last places. The Seniors were victorious, leaving the Juniors the ground floor position.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any cigarette nor any likeness thereof, either in James ' office above or on any floor beneath or in the basement under tne floors; thou shalt not take delight in the flavor of it nor smoke it, for verily it doth retard thy studies and make thy grades as the grades of the Fraternities. 3. Thou shalt not take the note of thy Dean in vain, for the Dean will not hold him guiltless that taketh his note in vain. 4. Remember thy lessons to study them two hours, as the Profs, thy instructors, commanded thee. One day shalt thou go to Church and Sunday School, but the six days belong to thy Profs; in them shalt thou study thy lessons, thou and thy room-mate and thy servant and thy landlady and all that are within thy gates. And thou shalt remember that thou wast a Freshman in Millikin and thy Profs brot thee out thence by a mighty hand and much travail; therefore thy Profs commanded thee to study thy lessons two full hours. 5. Honor thy professors, as Prexy, thy lord, commanded thee, that thy grades may be honor grades and that it may go well with thee in Millikin whither thy parents have sent thee. 6. Thou shalt not slumber in thy classes. 7. Thou shalt not commit matrimony in the University, for the consequences thereof are grievous. 8. Thou shalt not say " yo ' u was " in the English Department. 9.

What cared we, the studious- minded young ladies of Aston Hall, that it was Halowe ' en? At ten-fifteen, lights were all out, and the Dormitory girls slept. Midnight came, and a ghostly wail filled the air. There were ghosts on the fourth floor! Sheeted and wailing, they advanced, gathering recruits as they went. The cor- ridors were filled with shrieks and groans, as the ghostly procession descended to the (fining room. Two teachers were clearing away the remains of a spread, and a young man sat enjoying the last crumbs of the feast. As the ghosts climbed again to the upper world, the Dean, meeting them with an understanding smile, suggested that the ghosts should retire. They did, in solemn and mournful manner. But as they with- drew to the fourth floor, a terrible banging and bumping, from the fourth floor clown to the basement, announced that the ghosts were having their revenge. On the next morning, brooms, dustpans, carpet sweepers, and similar articles were found in great numbers at the bottom of the clothes chutes. A CAMPAIGN RIOT. Dinner at Aston Hall was half-way over, when someone rose and announced that there would be a Wilson rally in the parlor after dinner. The Roosevelt rally was immediately announced as about to be held in Room 114, and someone suggested that there be a Taft rally in the laundry. The Wilsonites met in the parlor. The}- formed a double line down the corridor, and with Mrs. Walker and Miss McCaslin at their head, paraded past the ballot box. They turned at the end of the corridor, and started back, but by this time, a yelling line of Roosevelt ' s admirers met them. The opposing parties lined themselves up 011 the steps, yelling, and beseeching the stragglers. Finally, along came the three poor Taft supporters; and as they were told on every hand that it was the sane thing to vote for Wilson, they joined that party. Both parties were still yelling, and some Democrat was waving a flag, which the Rooseveltians tried to snatch. The Wilson party man- aged to get to the piano, where they tried to sing the Wilson campaign song. Mean- while the Progressives stamped and hooted, and finally captured the piano. They sang " The Star-spangled Banner " lustily, after which all left the gory battlefield, which was bestrewn with combs, hairpins, belts, neckties, and other battle regalia.

Page Tiro Hundred Sir THE FABLE OF AN ARCHAIC ENIGMA (With Apologies to George Ade.) Once in the Dim Pre-historic Bygones, a little Jimmie-Boy lived and played much as other Boys of that Age did. One Day as this Boy sat out on the Back Stoop giving his long Golden Curls the loving Hand. Temptation appeared in the Guise of a Greek Grammar. The Boy was startled, and he chewed his Yellow Tow viciously. " What do you want of me? " he whispered. " A-Ha. " And the Grammar spread itself out in all the Greek Printery. " Be-hold. I have in me the Key to all the Knowledge — " and he w hispered a baleful Whisp. The Boy looked upon the Grammar with eyes undimmed by the Glassy Disks, and the Grammar slid him the Glad Hand — thereby gathering one more to the Company of Musty Monogram--. Time Rolled on. and Rumor Has It that Jimmie hied to the Boot-shaped Peninsula and took a Row-boat ever to the Home of Pericles and Demosthenes, and had an occasional Argument with Socrates as he sat on the Traditional Nail-Keg. Society also told us that at this time he had grown a Chintz Curtain in front of his Purse Proud Lips — and his Golden Curls were reposing in a Metallic Casket to- gether with Several Yards of baby blue Ribbon. He also Boasted an Embryonic Alphabet placed Promiscuously after his Surname, and the Greek Maidens looked Anxiously after his Manly and Stalwart Prince Albert. From this time on, he rose rapidly in Greek Society. Tradition Has It that he broke off the Arms of the Venus de Milo in teaching her the Tango. In fact, he was the Giddy Guy Mongst all the High Brows of Ancient Athens. Xo Social Gathering was Complete without the Presence of Jimmie Darling. Xo Public Work could be Erected without his Sanction. In short, it was at his Instigation that a Memorial was Erected to the Heroes who Fell at the Pass of Thermopylae. Xo one could enjoy Such an Enviable Reputation without attracting much Notori- ety to his Person. The Soul-Melting Glances of Seven Greek Maidens had then- effect, and Seven Greek Papas put in their Bids to Jimmie to he the Happy Son-in-Law of one of them. Now Panic spread over the Neural Pathways in Jimmie ' s Brain. To Lose all the Greek Sisters — Yes. But to Hitch Up with One, for the Rest of his Absence from Mount Olympus — Jimmie Drew the Line. The Next Day. Jimmie Sailed from Greece, and the Salt Tears of Seven Maidens Swelled the Waters of the Aegean Sea. As Jimmie Departed, the Ghost of the old Greek Grammar rose before the Glassy Disks in front of his Eyes, and again let out a Baleful Whisper. What he said, we do not know, — but the Results were Unprecedented. It is Said that at this Period of his Career Jimmie beat a Real Live Drawing Teacher by the large Margin of Five whole Percent in an examination on Greek Art. At this Time, he made Students of English Turn Pale and Green with Envy at the Quantity and Quality of English Quota- tions that he could Spill on the Surrounding Atmcsphere, Jimmie discovered that the Stones that Jacob Erected in the Desert were designed for an Altar, and he Pro- claimed to the Waiting World that " Babel " really Means Tower. The Effect on Suc- ceeding Generations of this one Discovery has been Unequalled in the History of Man. One Evening as Jimmie sat in I lis Little Boat rocking away on the Mediterranean, he sighed. He reviewed all his works in the Grecian Archipelago and sighed. " Where there ' s a lady in the ease, all else must give place. " — Carl Pritchett. P(u c Tiri) Hundred Seven THE FABLE OF AN ARCHAIC ENIGMA Continued " I wonder why I am so popular? " he moaned. " I really can ' t help it. " So in Remorse Unspeakable, he abolished the Chintz Curtain from his Phiz in an effort to mutilate his Adonis-like Beauty, and Rumor Has It that from that day to this he has never repeated the offense — Never — from Sheer Fear of growing Popular. Jimmie at last determined to return to his Native Land. But his Heart was with his Ancient Haunts, and to dispel the gloomy Heartache that he sometimes suffered, he surrounded himself with Representations of his Plaster Casts and Chunks of Marble. He never grew Lonely and they say that from gazing on the Marble and Plaster Casts for so many years, he Imbibed many of their Qualities. The only thing that would penetrate the icy hardness of the plaster film around his heart was the presence of Young and Living Models, to whom he Constantly Babbled of the Beauties of the Pre-Historic, Archaic, Transitional and Great Ages of Greek Art, and the Meaning of the Archaic Smile. Moral — ' Tis better to have been a Highbrow and Lost, than never to have been a Highbrow at all. A SUNDAY NIGHT. The profound and holy hush of Sunday night lay over Aston Hall. Far off in the end of the long parlor came the subdued tones of a young couple ' s goodnight, for the ten o ' clock bell had rung. Then a whisper went about corridor one. It was rumored that the Dean, in bed slippers and kimona, walked abroad that night. Suddenly, the commotion increased. Quietly, majestically, she advanced down the hall, and, laying a firm hand upon a teacher ' s door, entered. For an instant, all was still. Then the laughter of the excited girls filled the hall, as the Dean opened the door, and fled pre- cipitously toward her room. Someone had company after 10:15! " That lady was ordained to bless an empire. " — Florence North. Page Two Hundred Eight Xo, those aren ' t warts on Prof. Frederick ' s cheeks, — they ' re tears. Can you blame him? He ran for the car, tightly clutching his nickel, when a cruel brick hat tripped him, causing him to measure his length on the pavement, and horrible to relate, giving the nickel a chance to lose itself m the gutter. The car was gone, the nickel was gone, so the poor professor had none. Literary Digest says that. " Love is that which makes a man spend $ ' .) ' . . ' .is fur a diamond ring and wear low shoes all winter. " We wonder if this has any connection with the art department. At last we know the cause of the frequently occurring looks of despondency among the masculine portion of students. According to the latest logical definition, " catastrophe " and " turn down " are synonymous. According to Dr. Taylor: " Ideas come along " in Logic class, " like green pop corn. " Dr. Taylor (in Logic): " What do you say to this, ' All men are wise.? Well, Miss Morgan ? " Effie: " Isn ' t that a rather doubtful proposition? " Say, difl you know we ' re going to have a Junior Prom, this year? " Sure! All we lack is the consent of I ' rexy and the Board. " says Bob Evans. " What doe-- Pan-Hellenic mean? " " I dunno. It ' s all Greek to me. " Query: " Did I see that man kiss you on the stoop? " Shorty McNabb: " Yes, mother: but he couldn ' t help it: you know I ' m so small. " MYSTERY SOLVED.

Page Tim Hundred Eleven Theme 2323 A MODERN ARABIAN NIGHT " The sun was brightly shinning through the pains of the dinning room windows. Behind the curtains, which were gracefully drapped over the windows, stood a fare maiden, whose hair was pilled high on her head in the lattest French style. She gased nut over the gently slopping ground surrounding the house, hopping to see — who knows what? Soon through the scrubbery in the distance, came a youthful night. Under his coat-of-male, w hich shown in the sunlight, he wore a shirt of steal. As he approached, she saw that he was coming at a terrific gate. He swung himself around a corner of the house, without stoping at the door. Soon she heard the sound of water laping against the side of the house. Rushing out, she saw that a small tongue of fire was creeping along the roof; against this her night had directed a stream of water from the largest garden hoes. In a little while the flames had dyed down. The night took his laidy in two his arms, and so ends the tail. " N. B.

In cook- ing, it is also the most convenient, cleanest and least expensive way. The Electric Grill is the latest of electric cooking devices. It combines the handy qualities of all the others. It consists of only four principal but simple parts, all of which are easily kept clean. You can toast on the glowing coils of calorite wire. You can grill, boil and stew in the grill and stew pans. You can fry in the cover of the stew pan. This cover is of aluminum, therefore, you can bake pan cakes on it without using grease. This all-round cooking device can be readily used by any member of a family. It is a great time saver and sub- stantial and practical in every way. Come in and see us cook by it, or better still do the cooking yourself if you wish. Decatur Railway and Light Company 124 South Water Street " She seems a teacher to most that teach. " — Maud Graham.

" " Now the next large event will be what, class? There is a profound silence, during which Marguerite Potter enters. Dr. Black ' s idea of faith certainly made an impression upon some of us.
