File. fifty-eight O, fortunate Athletic Editor, and fortunate Millidek; but above all else, fortunate Alma Mater! For what Athletic Editor was granted the task of inscribing the record of such a successful year in all sports, or what Millidek, since Millideks were, had the privilege of carrying between its two covers the records of Three Championships? And what Alma Mater could be prouder of her hard fighting, never quitting, and above all, clean playing sons? The record of Athletics contained within this Millidek is perhaps the best single season ' s record ever recorded for the Blue and White. The year of 1916 added three Championship trophies to the long list now in the possession of the Blue and White as a witness of the prowess of her warriors in battle. Tennis, Track, and Football Championships, 1916, are the records. Not only did we win first in these sports, but in baseball as well, a very creditable showing was made. Well can we at Millikin sing " All Hail Millikin! " We here and now place the immortal wreath of the wild olive upon the brows of those who have by their sturdy efforts, consistent endeavor, clean sportsman- ship, and never failing spirit, made possible this unprecedented record for Alma Mater. sixl y A splinter from life ' s driftwood. — J.

Drennan. sixty-one " Hap " Wann In the minds of those who have followed the remarkable success of the athletic teams since Norman G. Wann became the director of athletics about two years ago, there is little doubt where a large amount of the credit belongs. To the Coach, with the broad grin which has earned him the name of " Hap " Wann, the students of the University acknowledge their debt. His clean, attractive personality won him friends as soon as he took up the work at Millikin, and those friends have learned that his is the sort of a personality that improves with better acquaintance. As a coach, " Hap " has the respect of his squads, for he is a good example of the new school of coaches thru the country, those who believe that the men under them are gentlemen and should be treated as such. His tactics in all sports are just a little better than those of the teams opposing, and many times a contest has been saved by the right thing being done at the right time. In his summer scouting " Hap " has been found to be a real star, securing the best men for the college that can be found anywhere. Here ' s to you — " Hap, " and many more of them ! sixty- two Captain Sutlieird If some artist were to be chosen to paint an impressionistic portrait oi our friend, Captain C. E. Sutherd, the picture would, no doubt, consist of a large, square, and well-formed jay, set in lines of grim determination, and expressing to all persons of whatsoever race, color or condition, the fact that the leader of our Champions is quite a man. Sutherd has been a consistent, hard, and at all times dependable player during his athletic history at Millikin, and it was for these qualities that he was chosen to lead the 1916 football team in the most successful season that the Univer- sity has seen. While Sutherd is not a large man, weighing under the average of a line man, he had held down a position as guard for three seasons, and op- ponents soon learned that it was a safer and more expedient course to go around, and not try to get thru the place occupied by the aforesaid Mr. Sutherd. His style of play has nothing of the spectacular or grandstand quality in it, and he has never won any games by long, thrilling, open field runs that carried the ball over just before the final whistle. But that staying quality and determined spirit that injected fight into the team when fight was all that would save the day, is the one feature above others which has made Captain Sutherd the sort of leader that Millikin is proud to own. ■sixty-three Football Record, 1916 Millikin 7 Millikin 56 Millikin __. 52 Millikin 22 Millikin . 28 Millikin .... 57 Millikin 27 Millikin 13 Millikin 40 Rolla Lincoln Normal Bradley Lombard Shurtleff Illinois College Wesleyan Charleston " Never defeated.

LEAK. sixty -four Season Crowned with Cliampionsliip Coming thru the season without a single defeat, and with a team such as has not been seen in Minor Conference circles for years, Captain Sutherd, Coach Wann and Co. cinched all claims to the Conference title, and brought the big trophy shield to Millikin. The season started with a wealth of material, many back from last season, and many more fresh from high school play, some of the best men on the team being developed from the new material that came in with the freshman class. Millikin has great reason to be proud of her players, not only because they won every start, but more so because they kept up the splendid work in other branches as well. Perhaps you do not know it ; but there was not a single man kept out of any game during the season because of scholastic failings. The record of the team in study was just a bit above the average of the rest of the school. Can we ever forget the great fighting spirit that has marked the team thru the season of 1916? When, in the Illinois game, which would decide the championship, our light line was pushed back, back- and back, right up to the goal, do you remember that little knot of men who gathered for a minute, then sprang back into the line, and held for four downs on the five yard line? And that struggle in the Wesleyan game, when a slip meant defeat? These are the factors that made it possible for us to have the greatest team in the Conference this year. The season was an unqualified success from all respects. Winning the games from our bitterest rivals, Illinois, Wesleyan and Charleston, and defeating all others by one-sided scores, we can again say that " Milli- kin is just the place for us. " Short is my date, but deathless my renown. — Harroll. sixty-five sixty-seven There are superlatives, and super-superlatives, not yet committed to the hard bonds of language. It is these super-descriptives that should be used to describe the doings of Big Joe, the best guard that has set a shoe on any basketball floor in this vicinity for quite a long period. Ducks are reputed to take to water with considerable avidity, but the better rendering of the old saying is, " As Joe Catlin took to basketball. " Four year letter man, All State man, a high scoring guard, and one who was the despair of opposing forwards, Catlin ' s career on the floor for four years has been one which stands out above guards of former years in a very noticeable way. As a player he was above par, and as a captain he was able to set a pace that kept his team in the running at all times. Catlin graduates this year, leaving a place that is hard to fill, and taking with him the record of a clean, hard fighting player, and the honor of being another who has added to the roll of victory for the Blue and White. I am not the rose, but I have lived near the rose. — H.

True, we did not win first place in the big tourna- ment, but the record of the whole season shows that Millikin was very near first place in the standing of the conference in scheduled games. Out of a total of eleven pre-tournament games, the squad of basket tossers led by Captain Catlin was returned winner in ten. No team in the conference nearly equaled this record. The schedule was one of the hardest that any learn was compelled to play, and it is a great tribute to the prowess of the men who wore the Blue and White that they made such a great showing. The final game on the schedule, that with Charleston, proved the Waterloo of the team, and that was not a defeat as defeats are usually administered in basketball. Not out-played, but out-roughed was the true story of that single bitter drop in the cup of success. Coming to the tournament with everything pointing to another vic- tory, the hopes of Millikin received a severe shock when Eureka unexpect- edly eliminated us from chances for tournament honors in one of the greatest battles ever staged on the Millikin floor. We can say that Millikin never quit, and indeed, that is the true criterion of victory. The great fighting spirit that seems to be one distinguishing feature of Millikin teams, no matter what sport they are in, was shown all thru the season. The Bradley, Illinois, Wesleyan, and Augustana games were all close, and the final baskets, made possible by the come-back spirit of the team, was all that kept us from defeat. In the tournament, the team was seriously handicapped by the injury of Elmer Kiick in the first day ' s play. All else to the contrary, Millikin crowns her wonderful team of skillful, hard fighting, and sportsmanly losing athletes, victors — victors because they are the sort of men that do not quit, and because they did make a record hard to equal anywhere in the conference. After losing to Eureka, when third place did not mean very much, and some would have as soon lost as won it, that determination to keep in the game was what made it possible for them to defeat Wesleyan by such a score and bring the third place trophy to us. Captain Joe, we greet the Victors ! seventy-one seventy-two Captain George Walraven When George with his winning smile stepped onto the mound to pitch a game, everyone knew one thing, for sure. George would pitch the very best game that was in him, and whatever happened, no one could blame him. The team played several games in hard luck during the season, but that smile never faded, even when big Cap Elliott of Wesleyan cracked one over the fence with the bases full. Walraven was a pitcher who did not have everything on the ball that was possible to have, but he knew how to use what he did have, and his head work won more games for him than his skill as a pitcher. Walraven would have made a star fielder if things had not shaped up so that he was compelled to pitch, and as a pitcher he filled his position all season in a faultless manner. Steady, hard-working, and an earnest, consistent player, he was a valuable man to have on the team under any conditions. The name that dwells on every tongue- -L.

April 28 April 29 May 8 May 18 May 19 May 22 May 31 June 2 Baseball 1916 Baseball at Millikin during the 1916 season was not marked by any great success, as success is usually measured here. We have become so accustomed to winning all of our contests that when we have a bad season in one sport, it rather goes against the grain. However, there are s:hools in the conference that would be glad to get thru a season as successfully as we did in baseball. Out of a schedule of eight games Millikin won three. Starting out with a team weak in the pitching staff, Millikin did remarkably well, losing most of the games she did lose by close scores, and playing good ball most of the time. The game of " baseball as she is played " is one in which the breaks of luck are very important, and the breaks were against us so often that it became rather a joke. For in- stance, at Bradley a hard driven ball off Johnson ' s bat struck the Bradley shortstop ' s knee, bounced into the hands of the second baseman, forcing Reeter, and making a double out. The season was marked by the number of games that were rained out, only three of the home games being played. Financially, of course, it was not much of a success. In other respects, the season was not as bad as might be surmised from the scores. Charleston, Eureka and Lincoln were defeated in fast games. Indiana State Normal, Charleston and Wesleyan defeated us by close scores on the first round. Taking it as a whole, we have no complaints to make, and will expect to see the men back this season, retrieve our fortunes and make us again the leader that we have become accustomed to being in this branch of sport. seventy-five seventy-six seventy-seven " CW c If you should see a man strolling down the corridor, saying little, but looking as if he knew more than he was telling, and as if what he did know was worth hearing, you might be safe in making the conclusion that the man was none other than our friend, Mr. C. C. Cox, erstwhile Captain of the fastest track squad that has rejoiced the hearts of Millikin fans for several years. Cox was leader of the team that won the State Meet in a walk-away, and was again chosen to pilot the destinies of the 1917 cinder artists. The fact that he was twice chosen for this responsible place is a significant comment upon his ability. " Chet " is a first class track man himself, and further than this, he is able to make good track men from fair ones. To him in a large degree the credit for the records of last year can be attributed. He is a trainer and coach of the first order. Coach Wann says that it was due to his work that the season was such a success. As an all around athlete he is second to none, being able to lead the field in several events. A sprinter, middle distance man, and pole vaulter, he is certainly a valuable man to have on any team, and as he is a good man in each event, he is doubly valuable. We predict for him and his crew another successful season. seventy-nine Scores of Meets, 1916 May 6— Millikin vs. Normal. Won by Millikin, 81 to 41. May 17— Millikin vs. Illinois College.

Moore eighty Track Team Brings Another Championship to Millikin The track season, 1916, was marked by shattered records, and by the ease with which the State Meet was won by the Blue and White speed boys. The team was remarkably well balanced, as is shown by the fact that Millikin placed in all but three of the events in the final meet. Leo Johnson set a new record in the broad jump, bettering the previous record by more than a foot. The fast relay team clipped a few seconds off the mile relay time, setting the record at 3:38. The scheduled meets of the season were easily won by Millikin, no team being able to approach the number of points made by the wearers of the Blue and White. Millikin won so easily all thru the season that the great victory over all the other colleges in the Conference can hardly be appreciated. But when one realizes that of the men who went to the meet, all except two brought from one to three medals back, the victory becomes more apparent. Floyd Miller, one of the best hurdlers that Millikin has seen, finished his career by a string of victories in his events, and leaves a place hard to fill. Most of the men return to the University for the 1917 season, and we can expect that there will be another victory to add to the long list which we possess in track.

Joe Catlin and Paissell McDonald were the men who won for Millikin, and as both are again in the institution, the prospect for another successful season is bright. At the State Meet, May 27, in Jacksonville, Catlin and McDonald defeated Lidle and Graham of Bradley for doubles honors, while Catlin defeated Lee of Carbondale Normal in the singles.

The Freshmen succeeded in defeating the Sophs in a close contest, — four to three. The contest was somewhat different this year from any held in the past. In place of the usual class committees, the Student Council Inter-Class committee conducted the affair, and out- lined the events. Events were: Field basketball, relay race, soccer, and tug-of-war for the men; archery, ball throwing, and potato race for the girls. Class basketball was won by the Juniors, they being the only team undefeated after the schedule was played. The seniors, headed by the speedy Punk, made them hustle for the title. Sophs went into third place, and the Freshmen and Academy held down the cellar position.

Lucie MacWherter and Louise Parks lost the doubles 6-2, 6-2. The singles were won for Millikin by Charlotte Kerney by a score of 6-4, 6-4. Lucie MacWherter won the Women ' s Open Tennis Tournament, on October 23, by defeating Louise Parks in a closely contested match on the Millikin courts. The two girls were evenly matched and played one of the prettiest, most scientific games that a Millikin gallery has yet seen; but Miss MacWheiter ' s unfailing steadiness finally won for her, the final score standing 6-2, 8-6. eighty-seven Women ' s Athletics Women ' s Athletics at Millikin are no longer a dream. According to the new provisions of the Athletic Board of Control, Men ' s and Women ' s Athletics are put upon the same basis. The girl who plays in inter- collegiate contests — as tennis — will hereafter be awarded a blue sweater with the white M, the same as the men. The management of all the girls ' contests is placed in the hands of a junior girl who has an assistant in the sophomore class. Lucy MacWherter, with Virginia Sidway ' s aid, has proved to be a very capable manager this year. Invitations have been sent out to every college in the Little Nineteen Conference for a tennis tournament May 19. This is the first invitation meet of this sort that has been held in this part of the country. We are proud that Millikin is lead- ing the way in this new movement for Women ' s Athletics. Had he a thousand tongues to tell a thousand, girls his love, ' twould be but half enough. — Hofsomer. eighty-eigh t ninety Pliilomatliean FIRST SEMESTER President Vice-President Corresponding Secretary Recording Secretary Treasurer Critic Prosecuting Attorney Chaplain Marshals Clarence Smith Sibyl Kile Virginia Sidway Ethel Barnett Howard Moore Margaret Cloyd Helen Barricklow Homer Parkhill Esther Kiick Beatrice Bottrell SECOND SEMESTER President Howard Moore Vice-President Beatrice Bottrell Corresoonding Secretary Sibyl Kile Recording Secretary Frieda Smith Treasurer Homer Parkhill Critic Hal voi- Leek Prosecuting Attorney Helen Bear Chaplain William Mevill , , Treva Marshall Marshals Ralph j ac k son ninety-one Orlandian Literary Society FIRST SEMESTER President Vice-President Recording Secretary Treasurer Critic Prosecuting Attorney.

The membership is limited to young women pursuing definitely some certificate or diploma course in the Conservatory. As it met an appar- ent need, the sorority received the unqualified endorsement of both the directors of the Conservatory and of the faculty as well. In April, Theta Delta was pledged, and in May was initiated in the National Musical Sorority — Sigma Alpha Iota. Colors— Crimson and White Flower— Eed Rose FACULTY ADVISER Mr. Max vL.

After a splendid summer term exceeding all previous re- cords, the most satisfactory collegiate year ever known in the Conservatory was inaugurated in September. More students than ever before during a single year were under Conservatory instruction. Not only was the total enrollment larger, but large increases were shown, also, in the average amount cf work for which each student enrolled, and in the number of -pupils entering the certificate and diploma courses. While all departments showed a remarkable growth, the increase was greatest in the Violin De- partment and the Department of Theoretical Subjects. The advantages of the splendid Conservatory equipment, including, from viewpoints of tone-proofing, beauty, and convenience, the finest building in the world for music study, have been utilized to the fullest extent. No other music school has offered more or greater conveniences than those now to be found at Millikin Conservatory. The splendid equipment, however, and inspiring surroundings have been merely supplementary to the high standards of music and education, which this conservatory has long maintained. These standards are equal to the best, and, in accordance with such ideals, foreign-trained teachers have been provided in all departments. Millikin Conservatory faculty members have studied in Leipzig, Berlin, Paris, Vienna, Jena, Prague, Frankfort, and London. From these leading musical centers they have brought the best European ideas, combined them with the best in American music, and incorporated them into Millikin Conservatory standards. Each year these standards have become higher, and todav. represent the opinions of the leading musical authorities of America. By fulfilling the requirements of these standards. Millikin Conservatory graduates have been prepared to compete successfully for positions of most rigid require- ments, while their high musical attainments continually testify to the thoroness of Millikin Conservatory courses of study, and their value for musical training. Artists ' Series The Conservatory Artists ' Series for the season 1916-17 opened Nov- ember 22 with a concert by the Flonzaley String Quartet. Their playing represented the highest quality of chamber music. Their clear tones, correct time and perfect harmonies all united in making their work a standard for string quartet music. Undoubtedly the work of the Flon- zaleys is approached only by that of the Kneisel String Quartet. As the Kneisels were in the series of last year, the coming of the Flonzalevs means that Millikin people have heard the only two string quartets by whom leadership in the chamber music field can be claimed. The piano concerts were by Arthur Shattuck, December 5, and Rudolph Ganz, January 9. Mr. Shattuck nut into his concert an American fresh- ness and vigor, but his work was not lacking in the fine shadings of poetic- feeling so often ascribed only to the sentimental German or the romantic Slav. Rudolph Ganz ' s recital was thrilling and brilliant in technical work, which interpreted the strength and discipline of his Swiss military nature. Temperament and poetry, however, were emphasized in a group of dashing- descriptive numbers. He deserves especially to be remembered as an interpreter of Liszt— the " Rakoczy March, " with which he closed his program, being especially well rendered. With concerts by these two one hundred thirty great artists, the piano feature of this season ' s course was much stronger than is usually available in college communities. The song recitals, too, were by artists whose combined ability presents a quality of talent not often heard at such reasonable prices. Myrna Sharlow, prima donna of the Chicago Opera Company, and George Hamlin, leading tenor for the same company, sang in Millikin Auditorium January 25 and February 20, respectively. Miss Sharlow sang with a voice of unusually clear soprano quality. Its strength and volume, as well as her intense dramatic nature, were expressed in interesting selections of i omantic, humorous and historical significances. Her interpretation of " You my Dear " was especially pleasing to those in the audience since the song was written by Miner Walden Gallup of the Conservatory faculty. Altho prominent for many years as an operatic tenor, George Hamlin is best known as an interpreter of German " lieder. " He was the first to sing the songs of Richard Strauss in America, and of late years has made a special study of the works of Hugo Wolf. His Decatur program included a group of Strauss and Wolf numbers, which he interpreted in a manner that left no doubt as to the high quality of his work as an exponent of this form of music. Amy Neill, one of the most prominent young women violinists of America, appeared in the closing number of the course March 13. Her playing was characterized by a brilliance that was not mere show, but which was splendidly suited to the mood and character of the various num- bers of her program. This concert was a fitting end to the course which, thruout all six numbers has maintained the high musical standards set during previous seasons by such artists as Harold Bauer, Maud Powell, Ossip Gabrilowitsch, Oscar Seagle and the Kneisel Quartet. The liberal patronage given these concerts by students and townspeople alike assures a continuation of the course for many years, and establishes the Artists ' Series as a definite feature of the University environment. Faculty and Student Recitals A series of faculty recitals of his-h instructive and musical value was inaugurated October 19 by Rose A. Borch, soprano, assisted by Grace T. Wandel, pianist. W. B. Olds, baritone, and Miner Walden Gallup, pianist, appeared in the second faculty concert on November 13, and Director M. L. Swarthout and Associate Director D. M. Swarthout, continued the series December 13 with a program cf compositions for violin, piano, and two pianos. On February 27, Mrs. Rose A. Borch gave an interesting recital of German " lieder, " depicting the development of this form of music from Bach to the present day, and Marian McClelland, soprano, of the faculty, assisted Fredarieka Green in piano graduation recital of March 20. Be- sides the diploma recital by Miss Green, another student event worthy of special mention was that of Wilna Moffett and Ruth Muir in a recital of compositions for two pianos on March 22. High tribute was paid to Millikin Conservatory faculty members by the Illinois State Music Teachers ' Association when Miner Walden Gallup, W. B. Olds, and Esther Requarth were invited to appear on the program of the State Convention May 1. 2, 3, 4. Mr. Gallup gave a brilliant recital of descriptive piano numbers, Mr. Olds a program of his bird music, and Miss Requarth and class of children exhibited the unusual ear training and composition work of the Child Culture Department. These recitals are of unusual value, not only as an expression of the concert ability of the teachers in Millikin Conservatory, but also as an one hundred thirty-one educational factor in presenting to Conservatory students an opportunity to study a great many different musical forms. The hearing of good music- is ever an important part of musical training, and this series of recitals trains students in the ability to appreciate the best that is in music.

KllCK. one hundred thirty-six Carl Pemble A publication department would not seem complete without mention of Carl Pemble. While he is not a member of either the Millidek or Decaturian staff, we are indebted to him for the attractive appearance of both. We wonder how Millikin ever got along without him, for it is only the last two years that Carl Pemble has been here with us. But during that time he has proved so valuable to all Millikin enterprises that we have come to think of him as indispensable. His posters with the tiny C. P. herald the coming of the big events of Millikin, and those who do not know him can easily recognize his work. Didn ' t every one guess who made the " Recruits Wanted " poster? Then we all know the clever Decaturian cover drawings which make our college paper more attractive than that of any other college near us. The 1916 Millidek, too, is in- debted to him for the drawings which were its best feature. But the 1917 Millidek Board is especially grateful to him for his splendid work. You will enjoy and appreciate with us what he has done for this volume. His work is always perfectly unselfish ; he does it simply because he is glad to be helpful to any worthy Millikin enterprise. His work is clone promptly, cheerfully, even gladly, we think, and as you see, it is very well done. He has contributed what we could not have had without him, and we wish you all to know how much we appreciate his work. Not only for his work for Millikin is Carl Pemble to be commended. In all his drawings, paintings, and sculpture, his productions are equally excellent. Millikin is proud to foster such an artist in her midst. We foresee for him a bright, progressive future. one hundred thirty-seven Millidek Board, 1917 Editor-in-Chief Bitsiness Manager Margaret Honeywell Lisle Brown BOARD Ralph Houghton Gail Frede Eloise Ayers Mary Bell Price Samuel Tucker Martha Tucker Paul Hudson George Jacobsen Helen Kenney Bliss Irwin Hugh McDonald Charlotte Kerney Floyd Miller Paul Aird Ethel Barnett No man who is a good debater need be afraid of his conscience. — H.

Hon. — We have a lot of important things to do tonight. We must decide to whom to dedicate the book ; the color of ink in the photograph section ; whether we want borders around the pages ; how to fix the case page; and a lot of other things. Besides, I want reports from every department tonight. Hudson — That oughtn ' t to take long. Hon. — Well, to whom shall we dedicate it? Aird — When does the copy on the jokes have to be in? Hon. — Right away. To whom do you want to dedicate the book? Kerney — What faculty members have never had Millideks dedicated to them? Hon. — Well, there ' s Risley — Frede— Oh, let ' s don ' t! Hon. — and Meek, and Tyler, and Curtis — Miller- — Say, can ' t we have Curtis? Hon, and Rouse. Hud. — I think we ought to have Rouse. (Brown enters with armload of college annuals which are promptly siezed by board members who begin to read.) Kenney — Say, are we going to have a J. M. U. Ites page? The Illio has an awfully clever section they call, " In the Slimelight. " Ker. — I think it would be a good thing to have a page or two of snap shots from every class. (Price and Tucker groan.) Hon. — What have you camera editors done? Price — I ' ve got a lot of snap shots around school. Tuck. — I ' m going to start making some pictures next week; that is, if I have time. Barnett — Are we going to have pictures of the fraternity living rooms ? Hon. — Yes, I want photos of all your interiors next week. Aird — X-ray stuff, I presume.

I should think you would have a lot done, you and Ethel seem to have so much time to work to- gether. (Silence.) What about the conservatory, Eloise? Ayres — Mr. Swarthout thinks he ought to have more space this year, and he doesn ' t want any monkeys on the conservatory section drawing. Hon. — Monkeys ? Ayr. — Yes, last year they had an organ grinder with a monkey for the conservatory page. Brown — They don ' t deserve any more space; nobody in the conserva- tory buys the Millidek. Ayr- Well, I think they ought to have more — Martin — Professor Lahr says — Hon. — Please stop reading those books and listen. Now, what do you want to do about dedicating it? Hud. — Who else is there to consider? Martin — There ' s Mrs. Machan, and Miss Skinner, and Miss Conant, and Professor Lahr. Hon. — Would you want a woman? S. Tucker — I would be willing to consider a woman. Punk — I would rather not. Hud. — Why can ' t we have Rouse? Hon. — After the juniors thought they were so cute in guessing who it would be? Ayres — Yes, but he ' s had fourteen pictures taken, so ' s to have a good one. Kerney — Why don ' t you hurry up and take a vote on it? Martin (Who has been inspecting a Northwestern year book) — What color are we going to have the pictures of the buildings? Hon. — I have decided on brown. Kenney — The Illio has it in green. Hon. — Well, what do you think? Jacobsen, awakening — That ' s all right with me. Hon.- We aren ' t getting anywhere, and there ' s a lot to do. Martin I don ' t see why we have to think about these things. Hon. — But you haven ' t decided yet to whom we are going to dedi- cate it. Brown — Let ' s dedicate it to the alumni, then we won ' t make anybody sore. Aird — Except the alumni. Ayres — They did that at the University of Chicago last year. Kenney — So did the Illio. (An auto horn outside; Kerney and Kenney arise.) Hon. — Just a minute. Are you all in favor of dedicating it to the alumni? Chorus — Aye. Hon. — I suppose you all might as well go, but there ' s so much we ought to have done. (Exeunt.) Ambition is no cure for love. — P. Hudson. one hundred forty Junior-Senior Banquet On the evening of April the fifteenth the class of 1917 entertained the class of 1916 at a banquet in the beautiful ball room at the Hotel Orlando. There were about eighty guests, including Dr. and Mrs. Taylor, Dr. Rouse, and Miss Skinner, who were guests of honor. A short reception was held during the first part of the evening and then the company was seated at little tables when a six course banquet was served. Following the banquet an enjoyable program of toasts and songs was given. Bliss Irwin, the junior president, acted as toastmaster, with Floyd Miller and Mr. Casey, senior president, responding. Eloise Ayres played a piano solo and the Millikin Quartet sang, ending with " Alia Rah " in which the whole company joined. Panliellenic Scholarship Banquet The Panhellenic scholarship banquet was held on the evening of February twenty- fifth at the Saint Nicholas hotel. The guests were: Elizabeth Knight and Edna Rybolt from the freshman class, Henrietta Graybill and Margaret Rugh from the sophomore class, Margaret Honeywell and Elinor Mills from the junior class, and Doris Irwin and Leah Fullenwider from the senior class. Elizabeth Briscoe repre- sented Alpha Chi Omega, Florence North, Delta Delta Delta, Frances Kenney, Pi Beta Phi, and Hyla Johnson, Zeta Tau Alpha. Dean Walker and Mrs. A. R. Taylor were also guests. The subject of the toast program was " Lamp of Knowledge. " Ada Ross acted as toastmistress, with the following toasts : The Flame — Virginia Bowyer. Its Rays — Leah Fullenwider. Shadows — Louise Bradford. Inner Glow — Marian McClelland. Carrier — Bessie Fruit. Assassin of joy. — 10:30 RULE. one hundred forty-two one hundred forty-three Lawn Fete June 10, 1916 A Dream of Athens, " the lawn fete given under the direction of Miss Grubel, was a charming event. The Greek setting and costumes were unusually attractive, and the dances given m interpretation of the different phases of the life of the ancient Greeks were very artistic and picturesque. The " Offering to the Gods " was given by a group of gins led by the Greek priestess, then came " The Morning Mood " in solo dances and then the nymphs, Greek youths and maidens in procession on " The Road to the Athenian Festival. " The dance of the Greek water carrier was full of grace and beauty. Second Annual Dandelion Contest Our second annual dandelion contest was not without its interesting features even tho we had witnessed one other such exciting event.

M. and Y. W. C. A. Reception All the new freshmen and all the old-timers took that first important step toward getting acquainted by swarming to the annual Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. reception the first week of school. One couldn ' t do anything else that night, even if he had planned to, because everyone was headed that way, and what could he do but follow the crowd to see what was happening? Anyhow, he wouldn ' t have missed it for anything when he found how much fun it was. The tall ones were lucky again. They could wriggle thru the mass of humanity indefinitely and untiringly, but the poor little short ones had to fly to the stairs occasionally, for breath and a fresh start. Nevertheless every- one seemed glad to see everyone else, even if he had shaken with him several times before. The DuQuoin bunch worked it down to a system, which we would recommend for use next year. The refreshment tables were amazingly popular. There are advantages in having two of them, aren ' t there? Anyhow, all Millikin had a rare good time, and they ' ve been the best of friends ever since. Aston Hall Formal Reception Every fall, according to a long-established custom, Aston Hall opens its doors for a formal reception. The faculty and students are her guests. The 1916 reception was held on Saturday evening, November 25. Chrysanthemums, ferns, and palms made attractive decorations, and the program of musical numbers by the residents of the hall was greatly appreciated by the guests. Dainty refreshments were served. Scholarship Banquet 1917 The annual scholarship banquet of the university Pan-Hellenic was held Monday evening, February 19, at the Hotel Orlando. The dinner was served in the private dining rooms where the guests gathered about a long table decorated with a huge basket of white flowers, on either side of which were the Greek letters " Kappa, " formed of Southern smilax. The toast scheme was also carried out in such a way as to form the word " Kappa, " the name of the high honor society at Millikin. Marguerite Shafer acted as toastmistress and introduced the following program of toasts : " Knowledge " — Miss Skinner. " Ambition " — Mary Redmon. " Power " — Elinore Mills. " Patience " — Elizabeth Knight. " Ability " — Edna Orr. The guests at the dinner were the two girls from each class who had maintained the highest average for the first semester, and the girl from each sorority with the highest standing. The list of guests follows: Elinor Mills and Helen Kennev from the senior class, Henrietta Graybill and Margaret Cloyd from the junior class, Elizabeth Knight and Ruth Wilkin from the sophomore class, Erna Lohrmann and Virginia Sidwav from the freshman class, Mary Fox from Zeta Tau Alpha, Fern Harper from Alpha Chi Omega, Mary Parkinson from Delta Delta Delta, and Mary Belle Price from Pi Beta Phi.

The floor was covered with autumn leaves that swished when you walked, the lights were shaded with orange and black paper, all the nooks and corners were filled with cornstalks and pumpkins, and you never saw before such a gay throng. It was hard to know one ' s own friends, but it was a circus just the same. The poor judges had a great deal of difficulty deciding who should have the prizes, but after due deliberation, they agreed upon the Kappa Delt " Wandering Minstrels " with their leader, Robert Lamb, who rose into musical fame that night. The prize for the best couple went to the " hobo and his goil, " — Don Montgomery and Kortkamp, who made a charming girl. Karl Bradway dis- tinguished himself in a musical way also, and received the award for the best single masquerader. The cider, apples and pumpkin pie were a fitting climax to the evening. Orlandian and Philomathean are again on an equal footing, since Philomathean won the twelfth annual inter-society contest Friday evennig, December 15. The score of contests won is now — six all. The winners of this contest were Lura Henshie, Philo- mathean, writer of short story entitled " The One Thing Lacking " ; Mary Fox, Orlandian, reading an original cutting from " The Scarlet Letter " ; Paul Hudson, Philomathean, effective speaking; Moore and Smith, Philomathean, debating the affirmative on, " Re- solved, that all inter-state railroads should be owned and operated by the Federal government. " Informal spreads were held in the Philo and Orlandian halls after the contest. A frenzied fusser. — Querrey. one hundred forty-seven Home Coming Millikin ' s second annual Home-Coming on November tenth and eleventh was indeed a success. As President Taylor put it, " It was a real Home-Coming, a blessing to the institution, and a joy to the hearts of all those who participated. " The weather was ideal, the Home-Coming play and parade were better than ever, and likewise our football victory. But best of all was that genial atmosphere of fellowship and friendliness that just naturally belongs to such a reunion. A big blue and white booth in the main corridors was the headquarters, where all former students were supposed to register, buy a ' 17 Millidek, a Millikin hat, and numerous other things. The senior play, presented on Friday night, was just about the cleverest farce ever produced in our auditorium. The parts were all well taken, and the audience enjoyed many a hearty laugh during the evening. The Senior Orchestra, directed by Punk Miller, kept up the enthusiasm between acts. After the play, a reception was held in the main corridors where old acquaintances were renewed and new ones were made. Chapel exercises on Saturday morning were converted into a pep meeting, with speeches from such of our notables as Ben Wand, Zink Sanders, and Jim Lively. Both Glee Clubs sang, we had some yells, and then we broke up for the parade. The parade was the best Millikin students had ever staged. Some seven hundred students, faculty and alumni were in line, led by Goodman ' s band. The members of each of the classes wore insignia and marched together, with floats representing each class. There was more color in the parade and better organization than has ever been seen before, — thanks to the able direction of Preston McClelland, president of the freshman class. The paraders marched to the Transfer House, then down Water Street, where they passed the Jacksonville parade. Our worthy opponents brought over about two hundred and seventy-five people and a big band. The sight of all these made things begin to look interesting, but, well — you know how it came out. In the afternoon at 2:15 came the great game. By 2 o ' clock about three thousand people had gathered to show their pep and loyalty. It was a hard game, but the victory was all the more glorious because of that. Corydon Wilkin, Millikin ' s first cheer leader, Richard Simpson and Ken High, also former cheer leaders, helped much in keeping up the old-time spirit. Immediately after the old whistle blew, everyone hurried to Aston Hall to the Pi Mu Theta tea. It gave them all one last chance to see everyone before the festivities ended. Then all the fraternities and sororities had banquets or informal dinners, and now it ' s all over until next year. All but the memory. A bevy of fair women. — Pi Mu Theta Suppers. one hundred forty-eight one hundred forty-nine one hundred fifty Senior Class Parties The senior class was delightfully entertained by President and Mrs. A. E. Taylor on the evening of November 24, with an old-fashioned southern " Purlieu. Host oi the seniors didn ' t know then what kind of a party that was, but they learned after arriving that it takes its name from an appetizing dish of chicken and rice which occupied a prominent place in the menu of the supper which was served. The seniors gave a " kid " party in Philo hall on Monday night, December 18. It was a relief to be something besides a dignified senior, and every member made the most of the opportunity. Will anyone ever forget what a " regular kid Lisle was Peanuts, stick-candy and a Christmas tree were the features which the youthful members enjoyed most. . ... T1 . „ The senior party on February 22 was held at the home of Miss Henrietta Page, it was one of those friendly, informal parties that we all enjoy so much. The enter- tainment and refreshments were of a nature appropriate to Washington ' s birthday. Cap and Gown Dau Seniors of the class of 1917 appeared in their caps and gowns for the first time in the chapel exercises of Wednesday morning December 13, the annual senior chapel. Led by their president, Paul Hudson, the members of the class filed into the auditorium from the rear door after the other students had taken their places, and marched to the platform. Professor Donald Swarthout played the processional. Paul Hudson made the address, speaking on the subject of obligations of seniors to their college, and of the college to its seniors. Following the address, W. B. Olds presented a group of three charming Irish ballads, which were much enjoyed. For the remainder of the year, the seniors had charge of all Wednesday morning chapel programs. Millidek DaLj Quite different from all other Millidek Days was the one this year. The chapel doors were opened, and we all filed in past girls who thrust little programs into our hands. An orchestra down in front played inspiring music, and with a mysterious air of anticipation we looked at the drawn curtains. r lhe programs said, " The Celestial Princess 500 " but that didn ' t tell us much. Then suddenly we heard that delicious soun d — the beating of a dish pan, which carried our thoughts back to " Yellow Jacket " and the Coburns. The property man heralded the approach of that august body " The Chorus, " who explained the play to us. The Celestial Princess was guarded by a huge giant representing the Student Body. Many suitors came to seek her hand — each suitor representing the various phases of the Millidek, but each suitor was narrow- minded and one-sided until at last came Millidek — the embodiment of all these qualities, and it was he who won the approval of the Student Body, and won the Celestial Princess. The Princess represented the number of Millidek sales which were the goal of the class of 1917. The cast of characters was the following: Property Man - - - Clarence Smith The Chorus..... P. D. Aird The Celestial Princess 500 Helen Kenney Her Attendants Esther Kiick, Beatrice Bottrell The Giant - - Joe Catlin Jokes - - Sheepie Lamb Snap Shots - - Sam Tucker Music - ...Lauren Shaw Literature - - Jimmy Moore Society - Charles Lee Athletics - - Lisle Brown " Millidek " - Ralph Houghton Margaret Honeywell, editor-in-chief, concluded the program with a little appeal reminding us to " sign on the dotted line. " It wasn ' t necessary to coax us; we all signed in a hurry. We know him by his gait. — Manning. one hundred fifty-one Hard limes 1 arty A new kind of college function invaded our midst this year, and proved to be very popular. This was the hard-times party, which was given in the gymnasium Saturday evening, December 2. " No admittance unless you are clad in your worst " was the slogan passed around in advance, and the result was a gathering of tramps, ragamuffins and washerwomen such as had never been seen before at a Millikin social function. The sight of Dean Walker in tattered calico, Miss Davida in her quaint old grad- uation dress, and Coach Wann as a bum were astounding features of the party. Bradway, famous for his Halowe ' en make-up, appeared in the most ragged costume imaginable, while Cox, Lamb, and others impersonated ruffians. The program began with a grand march, after which each of the college classes and the academy presented a stunt. A thrilling melodrama entitled, " Rosalind, Queen of Shirt-waist Makers, " was the contribution of the sophomores. The juniors, with Corwin Querrey presiding, presented some clever portraits from the next Millidek; the freshmen enacted the contest last fall, making much of their victory over the soph- omores; and the seniors appeared in a chapel program, with Paul Hudson as a very realistic Prexy. Faculty members had a clever introduction to their stunt which proved finally to be a violin solo by Carl Russell. The academy, speaking thru a rep- resentative wheeled to the center of the floor in a baby carriage, presented a clever poem which referred to that mysterious tendency of the academy to grow less rather than larger. Appropriate refreshment of apples and all-day suckers were served. A man that has traveled and been careful of his time. — Arden Hamman. one hundred fifty-two Tri Collegeate Debate For the first time in the history of the Triangular Intercollegiate debate, Millikin failed to win a decision either on the negative or the affirmative side of the question. Wesleyan won on both sides of the question, " Resolved, that the President of the United States should be elected by a direct popular vote " ; the affirmative against Eureka and the negative against Millikin. Charles Lee, Cecil Koch and Wesley Sternberg comprised the affirmative team which met Wesleyan at Millikin. The nega- tive team, Howard Moore, Russell McDonald and Glenn Wilson, debated against Eureka at Eureka. A plain, blunt man. — Gerald Waters. one hundred fifty-four The Brown Debate The twelfth annual Brown Debate, conducted in the university auditorium on February 12, was one of the hardest fought forensic encounters in recent years. Howard Moore and Clarence Smith debated the affirmative, while Charles Lee and Russell McDonald debated the negative of a proposition for compulsory arbitration of industrial disputes. Howard Moore received the prize of $25 offered each year by Dr. E. J. Brown. Charles Lee received second mention and Russell McDonald third mention. An affable and courteous gentleman. — JACKSON. one hundred fifty-five Brownback Short- Stonj Contest Every year J. M. Brownback of Decatur offers a prize of $25 to be awarded to the writers of the best short stories presented for the contest. In the contest of May 15, 1916, Marguerite Shafer ' s story entitled " Her First Duty " won the first prize of $15, while Martha Tucker ' s story " Button- Button " received the second prize of $10. Millikin Club Oratorical Contest The contestants for the Millikin Club Oratorical Contest, May 10, 1916, were Martha Redmon and Howard Moore. The medal offered by the Millikin Club was awarded to Howard Moore whose oration was entitled " Preparedness for Peace. " Medicine for the soul. — Velma Grosjean. one hundred fifty-six Ine lutor Mr. Spencer Cecil Koch Mrs. Spencer ..Ethel Barnett Dolly Spencer Henrietta Page Fred Spencer Clarence Smith George Carouthers Howard Moore Hans (the tutor) Paul Aird Butler Charles Lee Miss Snap (detective) Gertrude Martin Stop Tliief William Carr Paul Hudson Mrs. Carr, his wife Ada Neidermeyer Madge Carr ..Esther Ki ' ick Joan Carr Henrietta Page Caroline Carr Eloise Ayers Nell, accomplice of Dougan Isabel Dawson James Cluney, the bridegroom ..Howard Moore Dr. Willoughby Paul Aird Jack Dougan, a crook Clarence Smith Jamison ..Harry Shaw Clergyman C.

Many a time and oft have we been stricken with inclinations 10 go a-Maying, as the poet chappies would suggest. Owing to a certain lack of definite information as to conduct, we have been at a loss as to how one ought to proceed. Cecil Koch and J. Blair Tait, both veterans in the business have offered some suggestions which, with worthy addi- tions from other sea-going warhorses, viz. : J. Catlin, L. C. Johnson, aided us immeasurably in the compilation of this FUSSERS ' RULES OF ORDER without which no frat house is complete. 1. Be reasonable. In beginning campustry classes, avoid rainy or snowy days. Advanced students need not weigh this carefully, for you can appreciate his conversation on the Renaissance in Clay Modelling while strolling cross the w. k. campus though your teeth are chattering and your hands are blue. 2. Be seasonable. Don ' t expect a girl to stay from an annual to go walking with you. Imperative. 3. Be considerate. Though you may prefer railroad tracks and the boundless prairie, remember your fellow student may have a decided inclination to be well grounded in pursuit of the course of knowledge. 4. Be satisfied. Choose early before the lists are crowded, if you don ' t get the idol of your heart ' s fancy, a meal ticket is not to be scoffed at, now. On the other hand, if she shows a decided aversion to you, try combing your hair the other way and choose another. 5. Be careful. Don ' t overstate, overestimate, or knock. Having gone through a brief resume of the mental state necessary for campustry, the question of PROCEDURE now occupies our columns. PROCEDURE 1. Time. The time of campustry classes is an all important matter. Before or after chapel good. Afternoons after 3:00 are the most oppor- tune of times. 2. Place. Place also is of fundamental importance. Suit the en- vironment of the place to your line. F ' rinstance: When you talk about the beauty of (woman) (man), be near a pleasant spot; when about stateliness and pomp, in the heavy wooded park; when about poetry, near a mushy bog; when about the pleasures of married life- -well, there is no penitentiary near Millikin. 3. Girl. Campustry for men reaches its highest stage of perfection when a girl is in the class. In fact, the need is almost imperative- -unless your imagination is working well, in which case men, grown men, have been noticed to quote poetry, etc. If you have no special choise, choose one hundred seventy-two one preferably not entangled in any diplomatic alliances. Then go to walk and talk and look at the ground, she ' ll fall— if the time is right Now follows information relative to pursuit of the course, briefly summarized. . . . n , Following are suggested places for the uninitiated: l airview Fark, West Decatur, North Campus, South Campus, West Campus, and East Campus, Calvary Cemetery, University Square, Steven ' s Creek. _ Following are delightful places to pause: Fairview Park, University buildings, Archie ' s and Zeller ' s. Change conversational topics as you would tires — carefully, without soiling fingers. . . Always walk slowly. If you want to run, join the track squad. Always talk softly. This may convey the impression that you are saying something important. Campustry suffers no cut classes. Cut other classes blithely it the spirit moves you. Don ' t eat onions, garlic, and like fruits. Don ' t prattle about metaphysics, philosophy, or other light subjects. Nature, Poetry, Flowers, and Nothingnesses are suitable. Don ' t forget women have feet which get tired, and also the w.k. appetite for sweets. . Never take a lady by the arm unless you are taking her to jail. We hold a kiss on the hand to be entirely out of place. Don ' t neglect to let people see you. It does a lot to help spread the gossip. FEW AND FURIOUS CLUB Motto : I didn ' t want to go nohow.

They seem especially adapted to the conditions which prevail in the early part of February — when we just begin to think that spring may come some day. At least that is the time when cases show their first noticeable effects on both man and maid, college life, manners, studies, and family tranquility. Two months before Sam Eddy can discover a snow anemone, the cases have sprouted and with the first balmy day they burst into full flower in our main corridor, library, class rooms, and campus. Cases grow well in the friendly college soil, especially after the mid-year examinations. To say that they appear as a reaction after these three hour tortures, would be placing too much blame upon our professors, however. Even the poets blame the weather in verse " In the spring a young man ' s fancy — " I myself am not sure as to how to explain these attachments which spring up as unexpectedly as mushrooms over night. But do they need explanation? No, I think not, for they are rather harmless and a sci- entific investigation does not tend to reduce the quantity or to improve the quality of cases. What I do know is that cases are very catching; the disease spreads epidemic-like if conditions are favorable. Like tubercular baccilus the case germ favo rs the warm day when the air is heavy with spring mois- ture. The bacilli first attack the heart, then the eye, and last the speech. Speech is affected in one of the two extremes — it either becomes more fluent and poetical or ceases almost entirely. Under the latter circum- stance the person affected seems content to gaze out on the world with unseeing eyes, while in imagination he paints a wonderful miniature of the claimant for his affections. Aston Hall and the sorority houses do not cause the microbe to increase as rapidly as a more congenial environ- ment. Microbes are very particular. Cases are like the spring fever because they come every year just the same and no one has yet found any guaranteed remedy for their malady. No one is immune either. The evidences of a case are numerous and various, some are notice- able, and others will be a mystery until you are attacked. Since I am qualified to speak only from observation, let me speak of the exterior symptoms of a case. When a girl thotfully contemplates the toe of her shoe for fifteen or twenty consecutive minutes, then starts violently, blushes and stammers when Dr. Meek asks for the name of the first Hebrew king, you may be sure she has a case. Probably she was doing some mental arithmetic concerning the number of seconds she must wait before she may see George at the end of the period. And if she stands idly looking out of the window and fails to go to class until some con- scientious sorority sister comes along and reminds her that she has Fresh- man English, then indeed, ye sorority sisters, it is time to order another cream ladle. When her heart begins to beat uncertainly at the approach of Joe, Milton, or J. Blair and when this pumping plant sends quantities of red blood to the face at the mention of their names, then the signs are unmistakable. There are a few people who can conceal their emotions with some success and we scarcely realize that they exist, until — Oh, well, for example there is Charlotte. Didn ' t she surprise us all? I believe with the men the signs are equally in evidence. Charles Lee gets to his feet with great dignity and gravely forces himself to admit that he has nothing farther to add to the subject when Professor Mills suggests that am one of those gentle ones that would use the devil himself with courtesy. — S. Tucker. one hundred eighty-four he might open the door. His passive tranquility is not even ruffled when the class giggles ; he probably attributes this burst of glee to their pleasure at finding one thing about which he knows nothing additional, or still more probably he is totally unaware of his whereabouts since his thots are no doubt hovering around 1171 West Main. With P. Aird the symptoms are of another nature, he smiles blandly, alike on friend and foe. Curry is worried to death for fear he won ' t be able to get a date for three weeks from Saturday; so he goes around to consult Ruth and any of the other sisters who may cross his path. The men seem subject to more severe attacks; at least the signs are more obvious. To pass from these more concrete examples of caseism let us take a peep at the general phase of the subject which concerns itself with a missing frat pin. When a man parades around in the corridor with his coat flung back and a pleading look on his face, you may be sure that he is shouting inwardly for some visible recogni tion that you miss his pin. If you speak of the subject he beams all over and asks that you keep his secret, for well he knows that this is a sure way to advertise the missing emblem. One of the interesting groups in every college, is the group who are noted for their annual and violent attacks of heart trouble. Some anatom- ist will no doubt gladly pay an enormous sum for the privilege of dissecting the hearts of Joe, Milton, Tait and others, when these overworked organs cease to function. Since some of our illustrious fussers graduate this year, why wouldn ' t it be wise to form a society for the propagation of this art? The seniors may be the charter members. If they will only edit a volume on the gentle art of cases it will no doubt prove invaluable to posterity, and help to stimulate an interest in affairs of the heart. Several members of the senior class have some valuable information at hand and have signified their willingness to help the editors in every possible way. For detailed information consult Misses Kenney, Kiick, Kerney, Dawson and Munch as well as Messrs. Tait, Aird, Koch, Catlin and Hudson. In addition to the publication of such a work, a society must be formed to cultivate a taste for cases and to give an impetus to the movement next year when the leading spirits are no longer among us. For joint presidents of this organization I nominate Mr. Kile and Mr. File ; at least their names rhyme, and next year ' s joke editor can easily get off clever little couplets about them. The spirit of these annuals is com- mendable, for to be able to work up a real case for four successive years is an accomplishment. They are public benefactors, for they furnish interesting material for themes and conversation. A shy Freshman need never sit dumbly in a corner unable to say a word to her partner after their dance is over, thanks to the cases that afford so much food for thot and speculation. When they have pro- gressed as far as the frat pin stage they are as sure of being mentioned as the latest Ford story. No one can ignore a frat pin. What a com- motion is caused when Dot slips noiselessly into her seat a minute late for her eight o ' clock because her (his) new frat pin caught in her sweater and had to be disentangled the very first time she wore it! Her neighbor on the left gasps at the sight of the imposing diamond shaped pin and quickly passes the news on down the line. How long the hours seem when you have a choice piece of news which you are sure the other girls don ' t know ! Not only at school but also at dances are cases prominent. You naturally notice that Pete has Toddy and that Brownie seems to have an awful case on his girl, then your eyes wander around the hall and you Bright enough to be conspicuous and stupid enough not to know it. — Litte Mc. one hundred eighty-five decide to go up to the balcony in order to make observations from this more advantageous station. The balcony at the Elks ' Hall is by nature fitted for an observatory of this kind ; so you slouch down in a rocker and enjoy reviewing and commenting upon the couples as they drift past. You pick out the ones who will be married next year and wonder whether you will wear your white or your green evening dress, whether they will have a church wedding or whether to give them coffee spoons or embroid- ered tea towels. Since cases are so important a factor in the college conversations we should encourage them. However, this is not the only asset of cases, for they are inclined to raise scholastic standards. Since it is so often true that opposites attract, one of the parts in a case is sure to be a student. This naturally affects the attitude of the second party. They conceive the brilliant plan of preparing their history and science lessons together. This course natur- ally leads to interesting and profitable discussions that could not be enjoyed if individual study were engaged in. Often by concentration a lesson can be mastered in half the time when these two are together, for it is not necessary to stop and wonder what Bucl is doing — you know because he is sitting right beside you. It is also unnecessary to devote any time to other men. Herein you save much valuable time and energy. You need never lie awake nights trying to decide whether to take Punk or Ralph to your formal, nor to wonder if you will get to theirs. You are sure you will take Bill. You are above such trivial annoyances, and your mind is clear for study; no one will deny the importance of mental tranquility when he is endeavoring to make a chart for Educational Psychology. This little case buy is apt to develop hidden talent for writing, especially poetry. You will win favor with the English department in case your poetry is of a suitable nature for Miss McCaslin ' s perusal and she will encourage you to keep at it. If anyone is in danger of flunking an English course, get a case immediately for it quickens the imagination and arouses a desire to become an expert writer before summer vacation — for obvious reasons. Besides a desire to write, you feel prompted to dress with great care when you have a case. Jack is sure to say that he likes to see you wear pink. You act upon his suggestion by buying a roll of scarlet crepe-paper and spending a Saturday afternoon dipping all your white clothes. If he likes your hair in a French roll, you hop out of bed at seven instead of seven-fifteen, taking great pains to have each hair in place. Since he feels called upon to remark about your appearance you will be equally frank with him. His mother will probably draw a pleased sigh when she sees that he no longer wears purple socks with a green tie. Alas ! she thinks that after twenty years she has accomplished this change, but, no — you are the one who should have that credit. You both seem to be enjoying your college work more this semester. You look forward to each new day as a fresh adventure ; you are glad when morning comes for you may go to class again, and you both have third hour vacant. It seems to me that college students should do all in their power to encourage the little case bacillus. Anything evercising such a beneficial effect upon college life, manners, and studies, should be nourished and developed. Therefore ye Agents of Spring, we welcome you to our James Millikin University. — " Jerry. " If colors could be converted Into sounds her costume would be a siren whistle. — Alta May Beatty. one hundred eighty -six University Directory After a brief set-to over the fraternities and sororities of the institu- tion, we turn to a discussion of a few of the required subjects of our university, common alike to engineering and domestic art courses. They are remarkable for their broadening influence and their development of the plastic art of sleeping in public. We enumerate the following from the School of Literal Sharks : " Hygiene — This course, offered and thrust upon the unsuspecting Freshman, is one of the most valuable courses in the entire curriculum, breaking up the Monday morning hours to perfection and being conducive to the spirit of " class cutting " which must be developed in the experience of every Freshman. Text, Laura Bean Jibbey ' s " Home Talks to the Uninformed. " — V2 point. Wednesday Afternoon Clubs — Also one of the most remarkable alibi producers known in college life at present. In rare instances credit has been obtained on this most worthy phase of collegiate activity upon two passive attendances. Not only a nuisance, but tends to develop a thirst for low brow stuff. Conducive, also, to the gentle art o f " rolling-your- own. " Members of the bored, include practically the whole of the mem- bership. Credit — None. English 21 — Another of the " Things we Do and Don ' t Want to, " fur- nished by the courtesy of the English department. This honor is one which was reserved to the members of the Freshman class at the beginning of the year and they still maintain their monopoly. The class is remark- able for cultivating attitudes, ability and a diplomatic hate. Often assumes the aspects of a teta ' te ' — No credit. Chapel — In which the whole school is entitled to be gazed at by any chance lecturer resting from the strenuous trials of a street fakir ' s existence. Notable for student demonstrations three times a year, once in football season, once in basketball season, and once during the week of prayer when a sawdust trail is established. S. O. S. for the rest of the time. Offers opportunity for the students to demonstrate to the b st of their ability and Prexy likewise. Heart to heart talks with students and beautiful little stories the daily menu. — No credit. Electrocution 1 — More familiarly known as " Fools ' Paradise. " This course, which happens three or four times a week, is one of the most intensely cultivated courses in school and offers wonderful support to athletes and other brainless wonders. A safe and sure means of a half- a-dozen credits and a place in amateur theatricals. King ' s Henglish — Prerequisite three years of book illuminating and tatting and other decorative arts. Notable for diplomatic training and an avoidance of " breaks. " Attendance at social service meetings and conferences with passing enthusers demanded. — Credit — sure. Orlandian — Literary stronghold of the university, where Kappa Delt nominates Zeta and vice versa. Debating sometimes and flap doodle the rest of the time. Philomathean — Literary stronghold of the Tri-Delts and Tekes. Tekes aspire to the presidency of the organization like a baby for Castoria. Women predominate. The brilliant son of the Emerald Isle. — TlM MURPHY. one hundred eighty-eight K A X Meaning Kan ' t Dissipate Cheaply. Showing, as the reader will observe, that " Be it ever so lavish, there s no formal like your own, " as any of the members will testify. Noted for their militaristic tendencies, of which the Spring Drive is the most out- standing. Ability as athletes unquestioned. Old men are safe for pledges inclined to hero worship as they most all are guaranteed to stand without hitching. Men dance well, dress well, fuss furiously. Consistency not considered as a jewel, except in rare cases. When deprived of their pins, the men usually stay put, without much trouble on their part. Say the obvious and semi-obvious things. Scholastic representations — athletic learns— Orlandian— Glee club and the Pi Phi house. Hangouts— Archie ' s and the gym.. Spotts ' and the Empress. Distinct aversion to church going dates. Can be relied on for a bid usually, and are a good social invest- ment. Greatest developer in school. n b Ulterior Significance : Perfect Butter Flies. The reader will not have to puzzle his imagination to formulate the picture of this bunch, for thev are for the most part verv superior beings, with their heads in the clouds or the pages of somebodv ' s style book and a thorough and expressive disregard for the common herd, who fill the remainder of the registration blanks in the registrar ' s office. No doubt need ever be expressed as to the membership of the sorority, whe o member of the society is known, for others in conversation are sure |o be either affiliated ones, or members of the opposite sex. Thev are said to lead the women ' s politics of the college, but as a rule they take no chances and resort to the hammer and tongs methods of diplomacy. Famed for their stony stare and their complete neglect of casual acquaintances, especially on social occasions. References to daters — See Henry Curry, Milton Kile, or any Kappa Delt. Candy imperative. Strict evasion of faculty rules by pulling good grades. Pink tea fiends. Conversation re- stricted strictly to inside stuff. No chance for originality. Swig After Eating. Members are not averse to trolling as aoplied to the noun bowl. All smoke exceDt Jordan and Miller. Favorite brand — Melachrino and extra dry. Considered eligible for sorority pledges with vampirish tendencies. Dance well, dress well, and nroduce an unsurpassed brand of brainless wonders. Especially strong in campustry, corridor loafing, and English courses. Tastes in social affairs extravagant and they are considered a good social investment, owing to the presence of Hardendorf, who can be relied on, as the most popular fusser in school, to produce a knockout with any sorority save one. Athletes after a fashion. Initiation cere- monies modeled after the Inquisition, with several ingenious additions. Will produce candy regularly if the setting is fixed properly. Can be relied upon for middle-of-the-week dates, and produce Empress tickets and bids upon the slightest provocation. Week end house dance a feature. 2 A E A man of experience in affection. — Clinton File. one hundret eighty-nine AAA Ulterior Significance : Do Daring Deeds. Favorite sport of this aggregation is pledging some other bunch ' s exclusive rushee and pulling politics which the Mafia would shrink at. Noted for composite groupings, with strong Sig Alph tendencies. The aggregation may be seen at Teke dances, which are a cross between an Illinois chapter dance and a Delta house party. Noted for cosmopolitan tastes and a grate fire. Never with the same fellow twice in concussion, reason not given. Strong for political offices and athletic recognition. Supreme quality, kidding ability. Reference to house rules and their ob- servance, see Jordan, Rodger, or Jacobsen. Candy semi-occasionally. Dates — early. Week end dates, allowed semi-continuously. Conversation — scandal preferred, commonplaces allowed. Balanced ration preferred. a k a Ulterior Significance : All Kidding Omitted. By the above it is easily understood that the women of the aforemen- tioned aggregation are not out for a pleasant pastime, but that they mean business in the most fatal sense of the word. Occupying a domicile near the campus, they gloat upon their records as campus scouts and piont with pride to their batting averages, which have not shown a foul when a hit was needed to clear the parlor. Described as " awfully nice " girls by their fraternity neighbors and as " crushes " by the rest of the school. Especially subject to concentrated applications. Students, some. Steadies, Chas. Lee and Wilson. Noted for the ferocity of their chaperon, who has estab- lished feuds with at least three of the steadies. Strict adherence to the Sunday closing rule and four-dates-a-week observed. Candy not demanded. Conversation more or less individualistic. Lay off, sob stuff, not appre- ciated. T K E Meaning : Take Kurbing Easily. Built unon policies and politics, elections carried through without trouble. Offices guaranteed. Suspected of dirty work, but few definite grounds can be had for the assumption. Prominent in class activities and offices doled out by the students. Seekers after the spectacular, but still seekers. Dress fairly; dance indifferently. Reliable and safe for un- sophisticated nledges. Athletes after a fashion, but addicted to the religious and the semi-religious in all expressions. Include in their number several sharks or bookworms. Debate with audacity and ho ? the limelight of the chapel when students. Two horrible victims of Lady Nicotine in the house. Not the best sort of material for vampires, they snoil too easily. Reliable after losing pin. and pin not hard to pry off. Notables for long standing cases. Fair social investment, but too many non-dancers. Why did God make me such a goodly looking person? — Ott Collins. one hundred ninety Z T A Ulterior significance : Zetas Take All. Referring-, as the gentle reader will easily deduct, that the Zetas are a representative bunch, counting in their midst girls from every activity in school and then some, which is a record which no other galaxy has attained. In spite of the fact that they maintain exclusiveness in their selection of desirables, pledging girls only as long as the supply of pins holds out, they have managed to nail some of the representative offices about the school, such as marshal in the literary societies and sixth vice presidency of the Wednesday afternoon clubs. Representation, without a chapter at Illinois, is the chief claim to reserved seats in the world to come, when rushing rules are no more and pledges are a joy to the heart and a pleasure to the purse. Steadies are imported products, except Johnson, who maintains a stand-in in spite of a dual role which he stars in. Gen- eral laxity of the date-a-week rule and observance of Sunday afternoon dates. Candy occasionally. Carry a line of chatter, sob stuff goes well. one hundred ninety-two PREXY ' S CHAPEL NOTICES AND EXTRAS April 1 — Zeta Tau Alpha Formal. Arthur Johnson charms with a solo dance.

We have a large department devoted exclusively to copper- plate engraving and steel-die embossing. We can give you quality and service on your commencement invitations, fraternity stationery, visiting- cards and any other work of this character. Samples with prices on request. Co-operation In making this statement, we have no desire to take any credit from the editorial staff — in fact we feel that it is all the more to their credit that they realized the superior quality of Stafford engravings and that they so thoroughly appreciated the value of Stafford co-operation. Years of specialization have made the Stafford organization unusually expert in engraving and designing for college and school publications. The most modern shop equipment gives us every facility for prompt production of quality etchings, halftones and color plates. Stafford halftones are made by the famous Levy acid-blast process, which gives a cleaner, deeper and sharper etch than the tub method generally used. Printers like Stafford plates because it makes it easier for them to give you a first-class job. The Stafford hand-book, " Engraving for College and School Publications, " contain- ing 164 pages and over 300 illustrations, gives valuable suggestions for planning your publication, preparing copy and ordering engravings. It prevents costly mistakes and assures you of highest qual- ity engravings at lowest cost. We do not sell this book — we merely lend it without charge to the staff of each publication for which we make the en- gravings. In addition to the general assistance of this hand-book, we give you also our direct and individual co-operation. Stafford engravings and Stafford co-operation will help to assure the success of any college or school publication Stafford Engraving Company Artists, Designers, Engravers Century Building, Indianapolis, Ind. two hundred thirty-one S3n w DRY GOODS CARPET COMPANY Efficient Store Service; Dependable Quali- ties in Merchandise; Complete Selections of all Goods when Those Goods are in Demand; Fairness in Price and Absolute Conformity to the Various Changes of Fashion, — AH Have Combined to Make This Store one of the Greatest Department Stores in All Illinois.
